MEMPHIS, Tenn. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci released the following statement in response to a judge’s Thursday order to issue a limited stay on the civil proceedings on behalf of the estate 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 proceedings. 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.”
