Charges Dropped, Cops Still Sue

From NBC News:
Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby may have dropped criminal charges against the remaining officers in the Freddie Gray trial, but she remains entrenched in a legal battle in civil court.

Five of the six officers charged for the death of Gray are suing Mosby, as well as Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office, in civil court for a gamut of causes.

In several lawsuits filed earlier this year, Officers William Porter, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller, Lt. Brian Rice, and Sgt. Alicia White alleged defamation, false arrest, false imprisonment, and violation of constitutional rights, among others.
This reminds me of the Duke lacrosse players who sued the university and the district attorney, Mike Nifong, for that screwed up rape case. I hope Ms. Mosby suffers the same fate.

Go get 'em guys.

Good for them. (This is the second time I've tried to post this, as those stupid pictures are too small for me to even see!)
