Memphis attorneys expect serious fallout after cases dismissed involving ex-officers charged in Tyre Nichols' death

August 17, 2023

MEMPHIS, Tenn — Thursday, the Shelby County District Attorney’s office announced that at least 30 of the cases worked by the five former Memphis Police officers accused of Tyre Nichols' death have been dismissed. 

In addition to the dismissals, the D.A.’s office also reduced the charges in at least 12 more cases, adding up to close to half of the 100 cases involving the former members of MPD’s SCORPION Unit.

“I've never seen the D.A.’s office have to dismiss so many cases because of one incident,” said attorney Claiborne Ferguson, who has practiced law in Shelby County for more than 20 years.
