This is a long article and there's more content of each side's brief. Mosby is claiming immunity from civil suits. I see her atty, an Assistant AG is throwing in the "bright-line rule". The officers' lawyers were successful in the trials, hoping the same will happen in this case.

Federal appeals court puts lawsuit against Marilyn Mosby on hold
By Justin Fenton | Baltimore Sun | May 5, 2017, 6:27PM ET


A federal appellate court has put on hold a lawsuit against Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby brought by five of the officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, pending the outcome of her appeal of the case.

The officers sued Mosby in April 2016 for malicious prosecution, and a federal district judge had ordered that discovery and depositions should go forward as Mosby appealed the suit.

On Friday the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a stay of the district court proceedings until Mosby's appeal has been decided.

Mosby, who is being represented by the Maryland attorney general's Office, is arguing that as a prosecutor she has immunity from civil claims. Her attorneys said she has a "strong likelihood of success on appeal" and shouldn't have to go through the discovery process.

"The public ... has a substantial interest in having Ms. Mosby's immunity assertions resolved as efficiently, expeditiously, and fairly as possible, which is served by her unfettered presentation of those defenses to the appellate court," Assistant Attorney General Karl A. Pothier wrote in a March motion.
[...]
Garbis said Mosby does not enjoy immunity in the case because her office acted as independent investigators and not simply prosecutors.

Mosby's opening brief to the appellate court judges is due June 13, with a response from the officers' attorneys due July 13. The court said a reply to that response could be filed 14 days after the response brief is submitted.

Pothier wrote that while Mosby said at a May 1, 2015, news conference that her office had conducted an independent investigation, the officers' claims relate to her evaluation of evidence and not any investigative work.

US Justice Department Won't Charge Baltimore Police Officers
By Associated Press | The New York Times | September 12, 2017


BALTIMORE — The U.S. Department of Justice said Tuesday it won't bring federal civil rights charges against six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest and in-custody death of Freddie Gray, a young black man whose death touched off weeks of protests and unrest in the city.
[...]
The Justice Department said in a statement that while Gray's death was "undeniably tragic," federal prosecutors did not find enough evidence to prove the officers willfully violated his civil rights, a high legal threshold.
[...]
Five officers face internal disciplinary hearings scheduled to begin Oct. 30. Those officers are Lt. Brian Rice, Sgt. Alicia White and officers Caesar Goodson, Edward Nero and Garrett Miller. The sixth officer, William Porter, was not charged administratively.
