What’s new in Michael Slager?

Michael Slagers’ first court appearance was in a federal court in Seattle in March 2017.

Now, in the same courtroom, the police officer who shot and killed the unarmed black teenager on New Year’s Eve, who was then killed by the police, is seeking the dismissal of a civil lawsuit filed against him.

A civil lawsuit brought by the family of Michael Slag was filed last week in federal court against Slager and his former girlfriend, Lisa Cusack, alleging that Slager, the Seattle police officer, violated his oath of office when he shot and injured the young black man, Michael Brown, on a public street in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood on New Years Day, 2014.

Slager’s attorney, Steven M. Pritchard, said in a statement that Slag’s civil rights were violated by the lawsuit, and that the lawsuit was filed on behalf of the family and a small group of Seattle activists who gathered to protest Slager’s use of force.

“These claims are without merit and are entirely without merit,” Pritch said.

“This is a case of self-promotion and false allegations and false statements made in the pursuit of a false cause of action.”

The lawsuit claims that Slog was on duty on New York’s Long Island when he pulled out his firearm, pointed it at Brown, and fired a fatal shot.

Slager is currently serving a one-year sentence in a state prison.

In court documents filed Thursday, Cusak’s attorneys say the lawsuit has no merit.

“This is not a police-citizen shooting, which is how the court has interpreted the court’s ruling, the plaintiffs’ claim is without merit.

It is a false claim based on the claims of the plaintiff’s attorney that the plaintiffs are seeking a wrongful death suit,” the lawyers wrote in the court filing.

“Cusack has been exonerated of any wrongdoing and has stated that she had no prior knowledge of the altercation between Slager (the Seattle police) and Brown and was unaware of any criminal conduct.”

Pritchard added that the city of Seattle has hired an independent investigation team to conduct its own investigation into the shooting.

The city’s attorney said in court filings that it was “not aware of any specific criminal or civil conduct by Slager.”

“While it is possible that Slang may have acted negligently in the shooting of Michael Brown on that particular night, there is no indication that Slags actions led to a criminal prosecution or any other serious outcome in this matter,” the filing read.

Pritch did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNN.

Slag was charged with murder and attempted murder and has pleaded not guilty to all counts.

He was arrested by Seattle police on March 8, 2015, and was later released on bail pending trial.

He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted of murder.

A Seattle police dashboard camera video released by prosecutors in November 2015 showed Slager firing at Brown while he was lying face-down on the ground.

It was not clear if Slager pointed his gun at Brown at the time.

Brown was killed after being struck in the back with a police baton by Officer Darren Wilson.

Wilson was cleared of any wrong-doing in the case, but was fired in August 2017.

In September 2017, Slager was indicted on federal charges for violating his oath to protect and serve.

Prosecutors said that he and Cusk “intentionally” ignored orders to drop their weapon and run from the scene of the shooting and that they lied about the circumstances of the confrontation.

A judge set a trial date for October of 2019.

The lawsuit was not immediately immediately available from the Seattle city attorney’s office.
