Richard D. Emery is one of Reade Seligmann's attorneys in the civil rights lawsuit filed against the City of Durham, DNA Security, Inc, and 14 individuals.
In a phone interview on WRAL TV he commented about this case and described three high level conspiracies from the PD, DA's Office, and all the way up to the City Manager & Mayor that composed the civil rights abuses in this case.
1) Denying of the Presumption of Innocence entitled to the plaintiffs through the use of press statements to the pool of potential Durham jurors, and thus the Grand Jury.
2) Suppressing the discovery of DNA exculpatory evidence
3) Manufacturing a false identification process where the plaintiffs were chosen.
