How Baltimore’s Inspector General’s office got de-fanged
Appeals Court Blocks Suit Against Marilyn Mosby

Charged with rooting out the wasteful use of public money, Baltimore’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) has itself been rendered inert and ineffective – intentionally so, says its former boss.

The investigative unit, tucked away on the top floor of City Hall, has previously conducted a number of successful probes that have saved taxpayers millions of dollars.
A federal appeals court on Monday blocked a lawsuit against Baltimore’s top prosecutor filed by five police officers who say she maliciously investigated and charged them in the death of a black man who suffered a fatal spinal injury in custody. 

​The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a ruling by a lower court judge, court records show.
