ST. LOUIS (AP) - Lawyers for the parents of Michael Brown plan today to file a civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson, Missouri.

Brown, a black 18-year-old, was shot and killed by a white police officer, setting off sometimes violent protests.

A St. Louis County grand jury and the U.S. Justice Department declined to prosecute the officer, but the Justice Department last month released a scathing report citing racial bias and profiling in the Ferguson Police Department and court system.
