The lawsuit alleged that the ACLU had been denied access to the department's full report on the police shooting of Michael Brown on Saturday. The suit alleged that the denial was a violation of Missouri's Sunshine Law.

The National Associated for the Advancement of Colored People also wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, asking him "to take immediate action to address the unjustified use of lethal and excessive force by police officers."
