Federal Appeals Court To Hear Freddie Gray Prosecutor Case
FEDERAL APPEALS COURT CONSIDERS WHETHER BALTIMORE'S ATTORNEY SHOULD FACE LAWSUIT FROM OFFICERS ACQUITTED IN FREDDIE GRAY CASE
(CNN) – A Federal Appeals Court is being asked to decide whether Baltimore’s prosecutor should face a lawsuit by five city police officers.
The case involves the 2015 death of Freddie Gray, an African-American man who died in Baltimore police custody.
His death sparked days of rioting and protests against police brutality nationwide.
Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby charged six officers in connection to Gray’s death.
Three of the officers were found not guilty on all counts, and charges were dropped against the others.
Five of those officers are now suing Mosby for malicious prosecution.
