'Black Lives' can't be sued says judge

'Black Lives' can't be sued says judge

According to new docs ... the case is dismissed because BLM is considered a social movement and "not an entity of any sort", so it can't be sued.

A police officer anonymously sued Black Lives Matter and DeRay Mckesson, a prominent activist in the movement, after being injured by a rock thrown during a protest over a deadly police shooting in Baton Rouge a year ago.

"The Court also notes that Plaintiff's attempt to bring suit against a social movement and a hashtag evinces either a gross lack of understanding of the concept of capacity or bad faith", Jackson wrote.

The officer's attorney, Donna Grodner, said in an email that she was "not at liberty to discuss the case". The federal lawsuit was filed anonymously on behalf of East Baton Rouge Parish police.

At the protest in question, Mckesson was present and arrested, but not charged, along with almost 200 other protestors, but is not accused of throwing the rock that struck the officer.

The judge added that the officer hadn't cited any evidence showing that Mckesson "exceeded the bounds of protected speech". He has long described Black Lives Matter as a call to end violence. He was arrested near Baton Rouge police headquarters on a charge of obstructing a highway.




It may be mentioned that the Black Lives Matter movement started with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media in 2012 after Trayvon Martin, high school student shot dead in Sanford, Florida.

The officer, identified as John Doe in court documents, claimed in the lawsuit that he was patrolling a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Baton Rouge on July 9, 2016, when someone threw a rock at his head, injuring his teeth and jaw. But until Black Lives Matter is held responsible for their rhetoric, just like anyone else, the violence will continue.

Mckesson's attorney, Billy Gibbens, disputed Grodner's characterization, saying Black Lives Matter has no governing body or official members.

They have meetings. They solicit money.

The unidentified officer sued Black Lives Matter and an activist involved in a July 2016 protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where the officer was struck by a rock.

When you refer to police as "terrorists" and accuse them of deliberately targeting black people, you should be held accountable for inciting people to violence. He contends Mckesson and Black Lives Matter are responsible.
