Please add here lawsuits relating to the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.


The ACLU has filed two lawsuits since the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson:

On 2014-08-15, Hussein, St. Louis County, Missouri Highway Patrol, and City of Ferguson signed an agreement stating that: "Parties acknowledge and agree that the media and members of the public have a right to record public events without abridgement unless it obstructs the activity or threatens the safety of others, or physically interferes with the ability of law enforcement officers to perform their duties." Here's the PDF of the agreement.

However, reporters were arrested on 8/18 as the media blackout continued.

National Bar Association

On 8/18, the National Bar Association sued the city of Ferguson. They are requesting the release of all investigations and related materials relating to the shooting of Michael Brown. Here's the press release.
