Judge to hear update on progress in FergusonPosted on 6 March 2018 at 10:20am
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Officials from Ferguson, Missouri, and the U.S. Department of Justice will be back in front of a federal judge for an update on how the St. Louis suburb is addressing concerns about the mistreatment of black residents by Ferguson's police and court system.U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry will hear a status update Tuesday on the consent agreement between the city and the Justice Department.
Ferguson has been under scrutiny since 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, was fatally shot by a white Ferguson police officer in 2014. The officer was cleared of wrongdoing, but the Justice Department found racial bias in policing and a profit-driven court system.
The consent agreement reached in 2016 ended a civil rights lawsuit filed by the Justice Department.
