DISTRICT JUDGE DENIES SAN FRANCISCO'S SUMMARY JUDGEMENT MOTION IN ALEX NIETO CASE. TRIAL DATE SET.
Friends, family and advocates for Alex Nieto who organize under the banner Justice for Alex Nieto announced today that a district judge denied San Francisco’s Summary Judgment Motion.
Alex Nieto was killed by members of San Francisco Police Department on March 21, 2014.
In a statement from Justice For Alex Nieto the group stated, “On Friday, November 6, a federal district court judge denied San Francisco’s attempt to dismiss the [Alex Nieto] case by way of summary judgment. The city attempted to obfuscate and distort the evidence and facts of this case, and the judge saw through their manipulation and flat out denied their elaborate motion for dismissal.”
The judge, who the statement did not name, has set a trial date for March 1, 2016.
Justice for Alex Nieto will hold a press conference on Monday, November 9, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. in front of the San Francisco Federal Building at 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102.
