Former officer Michael Slager’s conversations sealed

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – The conversations that a former police officer charged in the death of an unarmed black motorist had with an insurance carrier after the incident have been sealed by a federal judge.

An order issued by U.S. District Judge David Norton also says that the address where Michael Slager is staying should remain confidential for the safety of Slager’s family.

The order came in a lawsuit brought by Slager against the Southern States Police Benevolent Association.

The suit alleges the insurer didn’t provide Slager the legal representation he paid for under his policy after the April 2015 shooting.

Slager, who is free on bond, faces a murder charge in state court in an October trial.
