Kentucky judge rules anonymous grand juror may speak publicly on evidence in Breonna Taylor case

A Kentucky judge on Tuesday ruled that an anonymous grand juror may speak publicly about the evidence that the state attorney general presented in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor by police officers.
 
The juror, whose name has not been publicly disclosed, filed suit against the state for permission to speak freely about the secret grand jury proceeding. 
 
The suit suggested that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron may have misrepresented details of the case that the jury heard.
 
The proceedings ended with the jury recommending no homicide charges against the three white officers in the case, an outcome that stoked days of  protests over the use of excessive force by police against blacks and minorities. 
 
Ms Taylor, a Black emergency medical technician, and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker were asleep in her apartment on March 13, when police burst in, looking for contraband.
