Sunday, the Stonewall Democratic Club, under newly elected president Alex Mohajer, hosted a Summer Social picnic with the proceeds going to the Justice For Gemmel and All of Ed Buck's Victims.
Headed up by attorneys Nana Gyamfi snd Hussain Turk, the Legal Fund helps to pay for the two pending civil lawsuits on behalf of the families of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean and Ed Buck's surviving victims.
Every crime victim has the right to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation from the perpetrator or from other parties whose unreasonable conduct gave rise to conditions that allowed the crime to occur.
Civil lawsuits can compensate victims for the emotional damage they have suffered and hold offenders directly accountable to victims. These lawsuits give victims their "day in court," regardless of whether there was a criminal conviction or any prosecution at all.
