CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County judge is set to resume hearing arguments in a lawsuit seeking an independent probe of the county prosecutor’s handling of grand jury proceedings in the Ferguson police shooting of Michael Brown.

Judge Joseph Walsh III will continue hearing the case Friday after suspending proceedings last month while giving strong indications that he may toss the lawsuit.

The activists who filed the lawsuit want Walsh to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate county prosecutor Robert McCulloch’s handling of the Brown case.

They say the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson, who was a white Ferguson officer, in the fatal shooting of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, was inappropriately influenced by McCulloch’s desire for Wilson not to face charges.

A Justice Department investigation also cleared Wilson.

    A waste of taxpayer’s money. The Feds already concluded Wilson acted lawfully, so how the case was handled is a moot point. At the next election, vote the judge and DA out…no need for a trial.

  3. Are these black panthers at it again? It;’s unbelievable how blacks hold a criminal like Michael brown and make him into a saint! He commited strong armed robbery, assaulted a police officer, yet he is somehow a victim! Even the racist attorney general couldn;t find anything wrong with this case, so he made a false claim of how blacks are over arrested in Ferguson. Incredible!

  4. A System can Never Fail Those it was Designed to Protect!!! This hearing is Nothing but a Dog and Pony Show!!! This Judge and McCullough is out at Happy Hour as we speak (4:36pm).
