So the baby-daddy, the one that told people to burn it down is suing? The family of Michael Brown has filed a civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson under Missouri's "wrongful death statute," family attorney Benjamin Crump said in a statement Thursday. The suit seeks punitive and compensatory damages in excess of $75,000, in addition to attorney fees. Brown's parents attended a news conference in front of the St. Louis County Courthouse after the suit was filed. His mother, Lesley McSpadden, who wore a red hoodie bearing her son's likeness, and his father, Mike Brown Sr., wearing a St. Louis Cardinals snapback and a hoodie that said, "Mike Brown chosen for change," did not speak, allowing attorneys Anthony Gray and Crump to address reporters. In addition to the city, the suit also names Officer Darren Wilson, whose fatal shooting of Brown has been ruled justified, and former police Chief Thomas Jackson, who resigned last month. Wilson "unjustifiably shot and killed (Brown), using an unnecessary and unreasonable amount (of) force in violation of (Brown's) constitutionally guaranteed right to life," the lawsuit states. The suit further accuses Wilson of "destroying evidence and interfering with the investigation" -- and a former supervisor, his fiancee, of turning a blind eye -- by washing blood off his hands and bagging the gun he used to shoot Brown. Jackson is included because he "maintained general supervision" of Wilson and "was also responsible for his hiring, training and retention," the lawsuit states. Ferguson city spokesman Jeff Small declined to comment on the lawsuit beyond saying it had been received, but not yet read in full.
