During a Thursday press conference, Michael Brown‘s family attorneys announced they will file a civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson following the Justice Department’s decision not to press charges against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed their unarmed son.

Wilson will be among those named in the suit, according to attorney Daryl Parks.

The Brown family is “officially in the process” of building their case. This is the first time the family has released a statement since the scathing Justice Department report that exonerated Wilson and found racially biased policing practices within the department.

“We realize that the burden of proof for the federal and state investigations is far different than the burden of proof in a civil case that we anticipate bringing on behalf of the family in a wrongful death case,” attorney Anthony Gray said. “And we do want to announce today are officially in a process of formulating a civil case that we anticipate will be filed very shortly on behalf of the family. In our case we plan to show and outline pretty much the same evidence, how ever you will get a clearer and more accurate picture of what took place that day.”

Brown’s parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, did not speak at Thursday’s news conference. The conference comes a day after they released a statement condemning the Justice Department’s decision not to charge Wilson.

“While we are saddened by this decision, we are encouraged that the DOJ will hold the Ferguson Police Department accountable for the pattern of racial bias and profiling they found in their handling of interactions with people of color. It is our hope that through this action, true change will come not only in Ferguson but around the country. If that change happens, our son’s death will not have been in vain.”

Gray, along with Parks, did not release any additional information regarding the lawsuit.

  1. Exhale on said:

    What I find sad is MB was living with his grandmother because his parents failed him (mommy beat up dad’s mom and explains tension in interviews) and as a result MB was robbying/bullying a store clerk. Can we sue parents who raise thugs to rob, steal and become menaces to our BLACK neighborhoods???????????????????????????? Oh I forgot this is a race pimp subject not truly solving our problems………they will LOSE!

  2. I hope this time Michael Brown’s parents will have the victory with the civil lawsuit “In The Name Of Jesus!

    Darren Wilson, the Prosecutor, Police Department, Jurors, etc. All need to be held accountable. … Also the justice system in America.
