Attorneys Ben Crump and Antonio Romanucci Release Statement on Judge’s Decision to Keep Trial of Former Police Officers Involved in George Floyd Killing in Minneapolis

Posted on: November 5th, 2020 by Romanucci & Blandin

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump and co-counsel Antonio Romanucci released the following statement on the judge’s decision to deny the change of venue request in the trial of the four officers involved in the killing of George Floyd. The judge also ruled that the officers would be tried in a single proceeding.

“We applaud Judge Cahill’s decision today to keep the trial of the officers involved in George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis and to try all of the former officers together. Trying these officers together will give the jury a complete picture of what happened on the day that George was murdered. Each of these men played a role that ultimately led to his death- whether it was a knee to the neck or denying any intervention as George and onlookers begged for his life.

The judge’s decision to keep the trial in Minneapolis is the right one. We never see Black defendants get a change of venue to increase the fairness of their trials, and the White officers involved in the death of George Floyd should rightly face a jury of their peers in the city where this tragedy took place.”
