Attorneys for the charged Baltimore cops has filed a motion on behalf of all the officers to get State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to recuse herself from prosecuting in the case of Freddie Gray‘s death.

The cops have a really long list of issues with her:

According to WBAL, it doesn’t end there:

It gives five reasons, including the seizing of personal gain by Mosby and her husband, personal relationships with individuals who will be witnesses at trial, the role of her office as the investigators, the pending civil claim against Mosby and her office, and the financial interest of the attorney for the Gray family, who they claim is a close friend of Mosby.

Lawyers asked for Mosby to rescue herself and for an independent prosecutor to be appointed going forward in the case.

Gray, 25, died April 19, a week after he had been arrested and suffered a spinal injury that prosecutors said occurred inside a police transport van. His death roiled the city amid a national conversation over police conduct.

In announcing the criminal charges, Mosby told residents, “I heard your call for no justice, no peace. To the youth of this city, I will seek justice on your behalf. . . . You are at the forefront of this cause, and as young people our time is now.”

Marc Zayon, the attorney representing Nero, emailed a statement to UPI saying “the motions speak for themselves.

“I look forward to litigating them in court.”

In 2013 and 2014, the Baltimore Sun named Marilyn Mosby one of “50 Women to Watch” – a prescient prediction, as it turns out.
