Lee Merritt

The U.S. Department of Justice is defending its decision to offer a plea deal to the convicted murderers of Ahmaud Arbery, but an attorney representing the deceased jogger's family is pushing back on the feds' narrative.

Civil rights attorney and Texas attorney general candidate Lee Merritt is seeking donations to help Shaun King pay for moving from his home exposed by a right-wing tabloid. But there is lingering scrutiny of anything having to do with King and fundraising.

Months after announcing his intentions to run for Texas attorney general, civil rights lawyer Lee Merritt is making good on his promise and officially launched his campaign to be the Lone Star State's top cop.

Texas attorney general candidate S. Lee Merritt rose to prominence in part by representing families who lost loved ones as a result of high-profile police killings including Atatiana Jefferson in Fort Worth and Botham Jean in Dallas

Tamir Rice's mother, Samaria Rice, unleashed a series of social media posts aimed at prominent social justice activists including Tamika Mallory and Ben Crump, who she accused of "ambulance chasing," among other things.

William Bryan, the man who filmed Ahmaud Arbery's modern-day lynching, was denied bail as he and the other two suspected white supremacists involved in the vigilante Georgia shooting all pleaded not guilty to murder.

Atatiana Jefferson was set to be buried one week after a Fort Worth police officer gunner her down in her own home.

The family of Atatiana Jefferson have made it clear they will not have the forgiveness of the Botham Jean family.

The Fort Worth Police Department was in shameless damage control mode after one of its officers killed Atatiana Jefferson, a Black woman in her own home by shooting his gun through a house window.

The shooting at a Dallas federal building was the latest instance of a white male committing domestic terrorism, which does not have a specific law addressing it.
