I am unable to find decision by the judge on the above lawsuit.

Meanwhile, the lawsuit in March, 2017, of seven citizens suing the Baton Rouge Police Department (BRPD) was amended June 27. It cites complaints going back to the 1970s through the shooting of Sterling. :roll

This is a new lawsuit by another Baton Rouge Police Officer, a deputy.

DeRay McKesson Named In Suit Filed Against ‘Black Lives Matter’
By CBS Baltimore | July 7, 2017 9:50 PM


BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A federal lawsuit accuses the Black Lives Matter movement of inciting violence that lead to the murder of three Baton Rouge police officers in 2016.

Baltimore activist DeRay McKesson has also been named in the suit.

The federal lawsuit was filed Friday on behalf of a deputy who survived that deadly attack one year ago.

It alleges that McKesson did nothing to calm angry protesters down in the summer of 2016, as protesters flooded the streets of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Those protesters were demanding answers after police shot and killed 37-year-old Alton Sterling.

Baltimore activist and Black Lives Matter leader DeRay McKesson was the face of the cause.

Just days later, a gunman with ex-military experience took his anger towards law enforcement to the extreme, murdering three officers.

Now a lawsuit filed on behalf of a surviving deputy blames Black Lives Matter and leaders like McKesson for inciting violence and not doing enough to calm down angry crowds.

McKesson, who also has a position with Baltimore City Public Schools, did not respond to WJZ’s request for comment, and his attorney said he’s not able to comment on pending litigation.

McKesson was at the forefront of protests here in Baltimore and around the country.

Update to previous post. Un-fucking-believable.

Baton Rouge officer's lawsuit dismissed; Black Lives Matter can't be sued, judge says
By Michael Kunzelman | The Advocate | September 28, 2017


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that Black Lives Matter is a social movement that can't be sued over an officer's injuries during a protest following a deadly police shooting in Baton Rouge last year.

A Baton Rouge police officer sued Black Lives Matter and DeRay Mckesson, a prominent activist in the movement. But U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson ruled Thursday that Black Lives Matter is not "an entity of any sort," and like the tea party or civil rights movement, it can't be sued.

The judge also concluded that Mckesson "solely engaged in protected speech" at the July 2016 demonstration where someone threw a rock at the officer. The protest followed the death of Alton Sterling, a black man fatally shot by a white police officer.

The officer in the suit, identified only as John Doe "for his protection," sought damages over a claims he was struck in the face by a piece of concrete or similar rock-like item hurled at officers.
