Ahmoud Arbury’s estate has filed a civil rights lawsuit against Georgia County, where he was killed, and a number of law enforcement officers there on Tuesday, the anniversary of his murder.
The essence of the lawsuit is that the officers illegally replaced the killers of the 25-year-old black man and covered up his death.
Arbury was on the street in Glynn County, Georgia, when three white men chased him and killed him; Travis McMichael, accused of firing the fatal shot, claims to have used racial slander while standing over his body.

The case alleges that Glyn County Attorney Jackie Johnson, who is also named in the case, knew Gregory McMichael personally – a former cop and investigator at the office – and intervened to stop officers from arresting the trio after the death of Arbury.
The lawsuit continues that McMichaels and Brian, who are civilians, were illegally replaced by the Glyn County Police Department to guard the construction site, which Arbury visited before he was killed.
While Gregory McMichall was an investigator in Johnson’s office, the lawsuit alleges, she personally intervened to restore his powers to make arrests without going through the necessary training.
