An anonymous juror filed a lawsuit seeking permission to speak freely about their experiences in the grand jury room and the release of grand jury recordings and transcripts, which prompted Cameron to request extra time to release the information.
“The request being made by the Grand Juror is unprecedented, and it is important that all of the legal issues in the case are fully considered,” Cameron said in a statement. “We understand there is considerable public interest in the case, and it will ultimately be up to the Judge to determine if Grand Jurors can share information from the proceedings. We remain confident in the case we presented to the Grand Jury.”
“Bre was a hero, a first responder who put her life on the line every day during this COVID-19 pandemic,” Benjamin Crump wrote. “Together, we demand a new grand jury to reopen Breonna Taylor’s case, immediately.”
