Attorneys Ben Crump, Antonio M. Romanucci Respond to Federal Criminal Proceedings Ruling in Case Against Five Memphis Officers in the Death of Tyre Nichols

September 22, 2023

Attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio M. Romanucci released a statement on the limited stay ruling regarding five officers now facing federal criminal charges for death of Tyre Nichols:

"As the legal team honored to represent the family of Tyre Nichols, we are satisfied with Thursday's ruling to issue a limited stay on our civil proceeding. This ruling will enable the Nichols family to seek justice and accountability which has been the goal ever since our nation watched the atrocities in Memphis unfold. We will be watching the criminal proceedings with great interest as that trial will precede the civil one. We want to set the record straight that the 5 indicted officers absolutely will still face accountability in civil court, just not until sometime after the criminal proceedings are complete. We remain fully and fiercely committed to justice for Tyre."
