20 year old Marilyn James won a case against a neighbor on Judge Judy. The neighbor, Ryan Johnson, broke into her apartment while she was away for the summer. Though she looked shy and timid she was not the one to be played with! Like a boss she brought in evidence of the damage done to her apartment scoring her the win against Johnson. She could have received more money in punitive damages for her settlement but she just wanted what was owed to her. That speaks volumes in my book!
Fifteen years later James, now going by the name Marilyn Mosby, is Baltimore City’s state attorney and is refusing to back down from charging six officers responsible for the unnecessary brutality and death of Freddie Gray. The lawyers of the officers accused want Mosby to step down from the case because they feel that she is a conflict of interest due to her political and campaign ties to the lawyer of Freddie Gray’s family and her husband, Nick Mosby, is a councilman for the district where the incident with Gray took place. However, everyone keeps glossing over the fact that Mrs. Mosby has ties with the police department too. The Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police PAC also donated contributions to Mosby’s campaign.
I’m sure that
James Mosby isn’t bothered by the criticism. As you can see from the video above she has it handled like her name is Olivia Pope!
