Michael Brown’s family plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Ferguson, Missouri and the police officer that shot the teenager, according to the Huffington Post. The lawyer for the family made the announcement the day after the U.S. Department of Justice declined to file charges against Darren Wilson for the shooting. However, the department also released a report the same day, which details the unconstitutional discrimination made by Ferguson police officers. Brown’s family hopes the civil lawsuit will hold the city accountable for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
