Rights of Protesters

On March 11, 2016, Rodney Brown attended a Trump rally at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis, Missouri. At one point during the event, he laughed in response to a comment made by Trump. In response, Trump repeatedly called “Get him out of here!” from the from the podium to the enthusiastic applause and chants from his supporters.

The MacArthur Justice Center represents Mr. Brown in his federal lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump, the City of St. Louis and several St. Louis Metropolitan Police District (SLMPD) police officers after he was falsely arrested, detained and made to stand  trial. Mr. Brown’s claim against the City of St. Louis relates to its alleged “no drop” policy, whereby its refuses to drop cases against protesters even when there is no probably cause.
