CORE Files $50 Million Dollar Law Suit Against

North Brunswick, N.J. Police Department


Patrolman Michael Campbell named in suit

for the unjustified shooting of Kelly Mercer-East




Kelly Mercer East, 27, was shot twice in the back by North Brunswick Patrolman Michael Campbell early in the morning of March 8, 2003, in her apartment.  She was left paralyzed from the waist down after the shooting, with little chance of recovery.  There are still many unanswered questions about the conduct of the patrolman that morning.


Patrolman Michael Campbell strangely was not indicted by a grand jury, nor was he disciplined by the North Brunswick Police.  For these reasons, the family of Kelly Mercer East has privately investigated the case. 


After consulting with Attorney Mel Sachs and Roy Innis, the National Chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and the uncle of Kelly Mercer East the family has decided to file a $50 million law suit against East Brunswick, East Brunswick Police Department and Patrolman Michael Campbell.
