To this day, Denise is still searching for answers regarding the death of her son. On February 18, 2015, Denise and Gregory Johnson, Sr. filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against San Jose State University, Sigma Chi Fraternity, and the San Jose State University Police Department. This lawsuit was filed pro-per, after Denise Johnson spent years looking for an attorney to represent her family. The lawsuit was thrown out a few weeks after the initial hearing, and lacking the thousands of dollars it would take to pay for an attorney to appeal the case, Denise Johnson and Gregory Johnson, Sr. have been left with no choice but to become their son’s voice.
This fundraiser will help the Johnson family with legal fees to file another lawsuit, since they STILL have not received a full police report and they should have received a copy of the police report after their last lawsuit was dismissed. This will also help pay for a private investigator and other resources that can help prove that Gregory Johnson Jr. did not kill himself.
Any contributions you are able to make to help Denise Johnson get justice for her son, Gregory Johnson, Jr., are appreciated.
Thank you for your support and solidarity.
