24/7 News: The Latest

A member of the grand jury that heard the case of a former Ferguson police officer is suing for the right to speak out.  The "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" reports the ACLU filed suit today on behalf of the unnamed juror, who wants a lifetime ban preventing jurors from discussing the case lifted. 

The juror takes issue with comments made by prosecutor Robert McCulloch, saying he mischaracterized jurors' opinions on the case.  The plaintiff, identified as "Grand Juror Doe," also said the case was 'muddled," and that McCulloch focused more on 18-year-old Michael Brown than on Darren Wilson, the cop who shot him. 

Protests broke out nationwide after the grand jury's decision not to indict Wilson in Brown's death was revealed.
