Court Dismisses Lawsuit Against Black Lives Matter In 2016 Ambush

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is tossing a case against the activist group Black Lives Matter.

A deputy wounded in a deadly ambush shooting filed the lawsuit, but the court dismissed the case because of it's failure to "state a plausible claim for relief".

The lawsuit stemmed from a 2016 attack on Airline Highway, and named Black Lives Matter and several of its leaders and partners as defendants.

It was filed on behalf of one of the deputies wounded, and although the officer is not named, the description of the plaintiff matches East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputy Nick Tullier, who is still recovering.
