Defamation cases against Marilyn Mosby set to proceed

The drama surrounding Marilyn Mosby continues.  A federal judge in Baltimore has ruled that Mosby is not immune from suit by five of the Baltimore Police Department officers who were charged in connection with Freddie Gray’s death.  He has further denied Mosby’s request to stay the case while she appeals his rulings on her immunity.

In fact, Judge Marvin J. Garbis left no doubt as to what he thought about Mosby’s appeal.  He wrote, “the Court does not, by any mean, consider Mosby’s appeal to be meritorious.”  Judge Garbis declined to extend immunity to Mosby after a hearing in October.  He did dismiss claims of false arrest, false imprisonment, abuse of process, conspiracy and constitutional violations.
