The National Bar Association filed a lawsuit against the City of Ferguson, MO and the Ferguson Police Department seeking any and all incident reports, investigative reports, notes and memorandums prepared by Ferguson Police officers, in-dash camera video, photographs, cell phone video and recordings in connection with the shooting death of Michael Brown and subsequent arrests of protestors in the City of Ferguson.
In wake of the recent events taking place in Ferguson and across the country, the National Bar Association has developed a task force that will evaluate complaints of police misconduct and/or police brutality nationwide. An online petition has been created calling for an independent investigation for the death of Michael Brown Jr. and an open book request has been filed in 25 cities and states for information on police actions.
