    A ruling by a federal judge paves the way for the family of 19-year-old Anton Black to continue with a lawsuit claiming that police on Maryland's Eastern Shore used excessive force when they handcuffed him and shackled his legs, according to the AP. US District Judge Catherine Blake refused to throw out the family's claims in the lawsuit and says body camera video of the deadly encounter doesn't contradict what Black's family says was use of excessive force by police. The three white police officers who tried to restrain him after they chased black outside of their home in rural Greensboro, Maryland were sued by Black's family. He died in police custody on Sept. 15, 2018. A state medical examiner’s autopsy report called Black’s death an accident,  but an expert for the family concluded that asphyxiation was the cause of Black’s death. His death led to calls for an independent investigation and just last year state lawmakers passed a bill named after Black that expanded public access to police disciplinary cases and records.

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — A federal judge has refused to throw out a lawsuit’s claims that police on Maryland’s Eastern Shore used excessive force on a 19-year-old Black man who died in 2018 during a struggle with officers who handcuffed him and shackled his legs. Relatives of Anton Black sued the officers who chased him and tried to restrain him outside his family’s home in rural Greensboro, Maryland. READ MORE: Baltimore Spending Board Approves $195K In GTTF SettlementsIn a 27-page ruling Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake said body camera video of the deadly encounter doesn’t conclusively contradict the family’s claims that police used excessive force on Black. The judge concluded that a reasonable jury “could reach more than one conclusion” about whether officers used a reasonable degree of force against Black. Black’s relatives sued the three officers who tried to restrain him: former Greensboro police Officer Thomas Webster IV, former Ridgley police Chief Gary Manos and Centreville police Officer Dennis Lannon. Manos and Lannon were off duty when they tried to help Webster arrest Black. Black’s death fueled...

After several legislative attempts in past years fell short, beginning Friday, civilians will have the right to request to review police misconduct records. Anton’s Law, named after 19-year-old Anton Black, who died in police custody in 2018, will declassify police administrative and criminal misconduct records from personnel records to public records, allowing them to be inspected by civilians through the Maryland Public Information Act. More Maryland news “Let me be clear, we are not seeking justice for Anton because justice would have been Anton being alive today — with his daughter, with his family, with the very community that raised him,” Del. Gabriel Acevero (D-Montgomery), the bill’s House sponsor, said at a news conference Thursday. “But what we can get and what we’re fighting for is accountability … that will not only ensure transparency but ensure that those members of the public who are seeking information about investigative and misconduct records, that that information is not only accessible...

As many other elected officials in Maryland did, Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D) on Tuesday celebrated the murder conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for George Floyd’s death, turning to Twitter to call for further criminal justice reform. “This verdict confirms what every person who watched the video already knew,” Frosh tweeted Tuesday after the jury delivered their verdict. “Justice has been done. But, this cannot be the end. Systemic problems with policing & with equal justice require reform.” “MD has taken steps to improve the quality of policing & the quality of justice,” he continued. “Work remains to be done. Our office is committed to continuing that work.” But the family of Anton Black, a 19-year-old who died after being in police custody on the Eastern Shore in 2018, said Wednesday they were “surprised” at Frosh’s words. They noted that he is defending Maryland’s former chief medical examiner, Dr. David Fowler, in a wrongful...
    The Maryland Attorney General’s Office has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit from the family of Anton Black claiming the medical examiner tried to cover up his death in his autopsy report. Black, 19, died while in police custody on the Eastern Shore in September 2018. Black’s family filed a lawsuit last December saying the office did not release its findings in Black’s death until Gov. Larry Hogan intervened. In a new motion to dismiss filed in Maryland District Court, the Attorney General’s office defends the actions of Dr. Russell Alexander, who performed the autopsy, former chief medical examiner Dr. David Fowler and current chief medical examiner Dr. Victor Weedn. The general attorney’s office is representing the medical examiner’s officer in the matter. Fowler is set to testify for the defense in the Minneapolis murder trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin on Wednesday, who is charged with killing George Floyd. Black’s family claims excessive force and racial bias led to their son’s death by “positional asphyxiation,” and allege a cover-up involving the state medical examiner and police personnel...

The family of Anton Black, the Black Eastern Shore teenager who died after being chased and roughly handled by police in 2018, filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against several government agencies. The suit, filed by the Coalition for Justice for Anton Black and members of Black’s family, and backed by the Maryland chapter of the ACLU, alleges collusion, cover-up and wrongful death, and targets the state medical examiner’s office and local police officials. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court of Baltimore. “The ACLU is proud to support Anton Black’s family in their challenge to the collusion that occurred between police officials and the medical examiner, which is a clear example of how white supremacy functions to deny accountability for misconduct and racial bias,” the ACLU said in a news release. Black died in police custody on...
