Federal Court Grants Protestors Temporary Restraining Order Against Police Abuse in Ferguson

The Ferguson Legal Defense Committee, a coalition of legal advocacy groups organized to defend the Ferguson protestors against criminal proceedings, filed suit in Federal court last night and obtained a TRO against the Ferguson PD "barring police from using excessive force and chemical agents to curtail demonstrators’ First and Fourth Amendment rights." reports the committee website.
Legal action is necessary to attempt to curtail police abuses and preserve the protestors' basic constitutional rights to freedom of speech, press and lawful assembly.
