Court Puts Hold On ‘Malicious Prosecution’ Suit Against Marilyn Mosby

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A malicious prosecution lawsuit brought by five of the officers charged in the Freddie Gray case against State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has been put on hold by a judge.

According to our media partners at The Baltimore Sun, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a stay on the district court proceedings until Mosby’s appeal of the case has been decided.

Mosby’s attorneys have said she has prosecutorial immunity from actions taken as a state’s attorney.

Lt. Brian Rice, Sgt. Alicia White, and Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter brought the case against Mosby.

Those officers, as well as Officer Caesar Goodson, were charged in the arrest and death of 25-year-old Gray after he suffered a fatal spinal cord injury while in police custody on April 12, 2015.

Three of officers charged were found not guilty of all charges by a judge, and then last July, prosecutors dropped charges against the remaining three.

This story will be updated as more details become available.
