Cameron had been given a week by a court to respond to another motion filed anonymously by one of the jurors for the Attorney General’s office to release recordings and transcripts of the jury proceedings. However, the AG filed on Wednesday to keep them secret.
The juror asked for “a binding declaration” because they feared Cameron could file a case of contempt against any of them who would publicly disclose information about the jury proceedings.

But on Wednesday, Cameron reportedly said, “Allowing [a] disclosure would irreversibly alter Kentucky’s legal system by making it difficult for prosecutors and the public to have confidence in the secrecy of the grand jury process going forward.”
It was Cameron who led investigations into the death of Taylor, 26, who was gunned down by a police officer on March 13 while she was in her home with her boyfriend.
Police later explained that they had been investigating Taylor’s ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, a convicted felon. But the deceased’s family sued the city in April, claiming “officers obtained a ‘no-knock’ search warrant with false information and burst into Taylor’s home after midnight without announcing themselves and ‘blindly fired’ into it, spraying bullets into her house and neighboring apartments with a total disregard for the value of human life.”
The cops who had gone to Taylor’s home, Det. Brett Hankinson, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove, all of the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD), were suspended. Only Hankinson was indicted on charges of wanton endangerment in the first degree.
