OJ eluded Nicole's murder charge....but ensuing civil suit by the brown family received a sizeable judgement against the juice. Threshold for conviction lower in civil cases and the suit would bring forward many of the facts that most do not know ...including the grand jury? Hope a law firm steps forward and takes case on contingency , if not, maybe public will create a donation site to hire legal counsel.

Probably will. Probably lose. Brown will probably sue WBKO. Probably lose.

We would be better served for all parties to agree not to file civil suits, and lets set up a donation site to help the Bradshaw family.

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that a wrongful death suit will be filed. The burden of proof is much, much easier to meet in a civil case rather than criminal. With that said, being awarded a judgement and actually collecting are totally different. In the case of OJ Simpson, it took the Goldman family many, many, many years (and a garnishment of earnings of book sales by a judge) before any substantial money was ever seen.

After attorney fees and court costs, I doubt Tommy Brown is worth all that much.

Perhaps Brown will file suit against Bradshaw's estate to recover attorney fees, since it was Bradshaw's actions that put Brown in the position of having to use deadly force to protect himself.

Anybody can try to sue anybody, but does the public really want to hear all the lurid details that will come out in a civil suit? Do Bradshaw's friends really want his kids growing up knowing what Bradshaw's last words actually were?

People think there's something magic about a civil suit, that it will expose all of the bad things about the other party involved. But it exposes all of the bad things about EVERYONE involved.

Bradshaw's family better think long and hard before filing suit because 1) they may win but never be able to collect anything; 2) they may lose and find out things about Bradshaw that they really didn't want to know; and 3) they may lose but enough evidence may be stirred up that really would enable Brown to sue Bradshaw's estate.

It's not a slam dunk by any means. In fact, it's a pretty large gamble.

You're not going to find a jury of 12 people who will agree to that statement. Period.

A wrongful death suit in this case is appropriate. A wrongful death is refers to a fatality that occurs because of the negligence of another person and is designed financially compensate the deceased's survivors and to deter the defendant from causing further harm to others.

Again, this will NOT be a criminal case! This won't be brought on by the state, city, or any other agency and their findings will be largely irrelevant.

The Bradshaw family can sue to recover medical expenses, lost wages, and lost future earnings to provide for Brandon's wife and children in the future.

4) they may win and only collect a portion of the judgement. But, during the process, they might also discover the truth that confirms their suspicions of Tommy's guilt all long....and confirm suspicions that the grand jury did not hear all of the appropriate evidence!

Kentucky law prohibits civil suits if it is ruled self defense.

The brandshaws should most definately file. Brandon had 100000 in life insurance so he tried to take care of his family but because of Thomas brown he incurred 250000 in hospital bills. His funeral was 9000 so this leaves Beirut responsible for 159000!! It's not even something she can fathom paying and taking care of the 3 boys brandon left behind.. the brandshaws need to file their suit and I believe they will win and hopefully they will get enough to help her raise her kids.. there is no way donations would get close to taking care of the expenses left behind

He was not found to have killed in self defense. What was found was that a no true bill was issued meaning the grand jury did not find sufficient evidence to bring forth any charges against brown. He is not innocent nor even not guilty. Charges could be brought again if new information is found! The prosecutor offered up his opinion as to why the no true bill was returned. This could be profer based on information from the jurors. So no protection is available for Brown.

I agree. I don't think that people understand that in order for someone to be prosecuted, it just can't come from the prosecutors office. They have to present the strength and evidence in their possession (which is given to them from the investigating agency). In the prosecutors opinion, it can be strong or it can be weak, but the decision does not rest with just him. He has to be directed by the grand jury whether or not to proceed.

While looking at the merits of the case, the prosecuting attorney knows the laws and how they apply and relate to the evidence. He knows the strength of his case. He also knows it's weaknesses. Most importantly, he knows if there is a law on the books and evidence to support that law that could severely weaken his case.

Had the grand jury returned an indictment, and all these people who are saying Cohron was covering up, then if that's the situation, all he had to do was present a weak case if his ultimate goal was to cover up as has been indicated.

This case can be heard by the grand jury if there is new evidence uncovered that could make a significant difference.

Since this case never went to trial the KY self defense law doesn't apply.

A civil lawsuit only takes 51% of the vote to win. Given the circumstances uncovered so far, Brown will easily loose a civil lawsuit.

The problem is collecting the money. The courthouse already has distant themselves by saying he was not acting in his duty as a bailiff.

So hopefully Brown has something to get. After all the lawyer fees, I doubt if Brown will have much to share with anyone.

I would think his days for being a $12.00 hour bailiff are numbered.

Good news .... Obama will let Brown draw unemployment for a long time since his job skills are probably very low.

True. But this case is different than some because they know who did it, and how it happened and what happened as a result.(TB shot BB and as a result BB died) I don't think there was ever any doubt that TB did it.(I'm saying that tongue in cheek).

What was in dispute was why and what events led up to it. And that led TB to the claim of self defense. The evidence and the law, according to the grand jury, supported his claim.

To address your other statement, the prosecuting office knew of TB's claim of self defense and knew that the law and the evidence and impartial witness testimony would probably support that claim.

Should it had gone to trial, the prosecutor knew it was an uphill loosing battle because the jury is instructed on the application of the laws and probably figured the majority of the evidence they had to present would support that.

I wonder if his auto insurance would payout on part of a settlement since the initial confrontation began while TB was behind the wheel of his truck?
