The fallout continues from the actions taken against six Baltimore police officers charged with offenses in relation to the death of suspect Freddie Gray.  This story comes via the Independent from The Baltimore Sun, according to which:
Two officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray are suing Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby for defamation and invasion of privacy, court records show.
Sgt. Alicia White and Officer William Porter, who are both facing charges of involuntary manslaughter in the 25-year-old's death last April, filed the lawsuit against Mosby, Baltimore Sheriff's Office Maj. Sam Cogen, and the state of Maryland in Baltimore Circuit Court on May 2, records show.
The officers claim Mosby and Cogen knew the statement of charges filed against the officers and other statements made by Mosby at her May 1, 2015, news conference announcing the charges "were false."
