Grand Juror Sues Dubious Prosecutor Bob McCulloch


One of the grand jurors of the Darren Wilson case has filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch because, according to the juror, McCulloch lied to the public about the grand jury.

“In [the grand juror]’s view, the current information available about the grand jurors’ views is not entirely accurate — especially the implication that all grand jurors believed that there was no support for any charges,” the lawsuit says. “Moreover, the public characterization of the grand jurors’ view of witnesses and evidence does not accord with [Doe]’s own.”

“From [the grand juror]’s perspective, the investigation of Wilson had a stronger focus on the victim than in other cases presented to the grand jury,” the lawsuit states. Doe also believes the legal standards were conveyed in a “muddled” and “untimely” manner to the grand jury.

This would seemingly corroborate the view (my view) that McCulloch didn’t want the grand jury to return an indictment so he intentionally muddied the waters. And according to at least one grand juror, McCulloch lied about the grand jury’s views afterward.

The goal of the lawsuit filed in federal court today is to block the state law that prohibits jurors from discussing the case. If an injunction is granted, jurors can set the record straight.
