- ACLU of Missouri v St. Louis: Requesting the incident report relating to the shooting of Michael Brown.
- Hussein v St. Louis: Affirming the right to film the police amid rumors of a Media Blackout (this is in response to orders that people stop recording the police)
On 2014-08-15, Hussein, St. Louis County, Missouri Highway Patrol, and City of Ferguson signed an agreement stating that: "Parties acknowledge and agree that the media and members of the public have a right to record public events without abridgement unless it obstructs the activity or threatens the safety of others, or physically interferes with the ability of law enforcement officers to perform their duties." Here's the PDF of the agreement.
The ACLU of Missouri, a state chapter, has also brought in legal observers from the National Lawyers Guild wearing neon green hats to observe the protests. Amnesty International also has observers on the ground. One National Lawyers Guild observer was arrested on the night of August 19, 2014.
