State Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who raised eyebrows (understatement maximus) when she abruptly charged six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, has now sought to seal Gray's autopsy report from the public. This is based on reporting by the Baltimore Sun, as brought to my attention by Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller.

As reported in the Daily Caller piece, Ivan Bates, the attorney for the only female officer charged by Mosby's office in the case, is quoted as saying:

[Th]ere is something in that autopsy report that they are trying to hide. . . . It’s as if she wants to do everything to make sure our clients do not get a fair trial. . . . Nobody would know anything but the state and the defense, so they would totally hide it from the public. . . .  If your case is as good as you said it was, why don’t you just show the evidence? . . . You can’t holler and say, ‘I’m about accountability for the citizens,’ and then run around filing for a protective order.
