The family of a Ferguson, Mo. teenager who was killed by a White cop in the summer of 2014 plans to announce a civil rights lawsuit against the city, the Washington Post reports.

Michael Brown Jr.’s parents — Michael Brown and Lesley McSpadden — along with their attorneys Ben Crump, Anthony Gray, and Daryl Parks, will make the announcement of a wrongful death suit at a news conference Thursday morning. Brown, who was 18-years-old at the time of the incident, was fatally shot by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

A grand jury elected not to indict Wilson in November.

According to the Washington Post:

Attorneys for the Brown family said last month that they intended to file a civil suit against Ferguson over the shooting. This came shortly after the Justice Department announced its decision not to seek civil rights charges against Wilson, a decision the Brown family called “disappointing” at the time.
