Their conversations were caught accidentally on a police car camera.

Gilmore’s attorney says they filed the appeal with the city’s Civil Service Commission July 2nd.

The move is required to set a hearing date within 60 days.

The attorney wants people to know there were two separate videos recorded and his client was only part of one of them.
