Black Lives Matter can not be sued, federal judge rules

Black Lives Matter can not be sued, federal judge rules

U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson ruled Thursday that Black Lives Matter is not "an entity of any sort", and like the tea party or civil rights movement, it can't be sued.

U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson said that Black Lives Matter is a social movement like the Tea Party, and since a movement is not an entity, it can not be sued.

Black Lives Matter is a social movement rather than an organization and therefore, can not be sued, a federal judge ruled.

Jackson also ruled that the officer couldn't sue a hashtag, which he apparently tried do by adding #BlackLivesMatter to the list of defendants, the Associated Press reported.

The protest occurred after the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling by a white police officer.

The officer sued BLM and McKesson following an injury he suffered to his jaw and teeth on July 9, 2016, when a rock was thrown at him during a rally McKesson attended in Baton Rouge. Shortly after being released from jail, Mckesson told the newspaper: "The police want protesters to be too afraid to protest".




McKesson and more than 100 other people were arrested during the protest, and most were charged with obstructing the road. This particular suit didn't come from Klayman, but he has filed other identical suits against BLM and they've all been dismissed for the same reason. "The movement began as a call to end violence and that call remains the same today". Afterwards, McKesson and Black Lives Matter were sued again for inciting violence.

Mckesson was among almost 200 people who were arrested in protests sparked by Sterling's death.

A Baton Rouge police officer sued the Black Lives Matter movement and Mckesson for injuries he sustained when a projectile thrown by a protester hit him in the face.

The officer's attorney had argued that Black Lives Matter solicits donations, and has organized meetings throughout the country, which make it a national organization. "This shows a level of national organization".

The officer's attorney has also filed a separate suit against Black Lives Matter and Mckesson for a sheriff's deputy wounded in the deadly Baton Rouge attack. It's not possible, a federal judge just ruled, saying the group can not be sued because no such "entity" exists. He contends Mckesson and Black Lives Matter are responsible.
