ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A grand juror in the Ferguson case is suing St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch.

The juror is referenced in court documents only as “Grand Juror Doe,” and is suing to lift the gag order that’s traditionally placed on grand jurors.

The juror wants to talk about the case because, in part, from his or her perspective, “the presentation of evidence to the grand jury investigating (Darren) Wilson differed markedly and in significant ways from how evidence was presented in the hundreds of matters presented to the grand jury earlier in its term.”

The plaintiff wants to speak about whether McCulloch’s release of records truly provided transparency, the plaintiff’s impression that evidence was presented differently than in other cases “with the insinuation that Brown, not Wilson, was the wrongdoer,” and questions about whether the grand jury was clearly counseled on the law, according to the filed complaint.
