A lawsuit from Ferguson protesters against the police, city and county has been dismissed by a federal judge. He ruled the plaintiffs had not presented evidence that police had behaved maliciously during protests over the death of Michael Brown.
The $41.5 million lawsuit against Ferguson Police, the city of Ferguson and the St. Louis county was dismissed on Monday by Judge Henry Autrey. It was filed on behalf of Tracey White, Dwayne Anton Matthews Jr, Damon Coleman, Theophilus Green and Kerry White, who all took part in protests in August 2014 over the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Autrey also ruled that the individual police officers in the case would be given immunity in other cases. – READ MORE
