SF 8 defense asks for wiretaps - Report on court 10/13

Report on the SF 8 case in court October 13, 2010  Today's court appearance for San Francisco 8 defendant Francisco  (Cisco) Torres merely scheduled the next arguments on the defense  motion to hold an evidentiary hearing. These arguments will be heard  November 18th at 9:30 a.m. in Department 20, 850 Bryant St.  At the previous court date, Cisco's attorney, Chuck Bourdon, with  attorney Rai Sue Sussman, filed a motion for an evidentiary hearing  to be held before the Preliminary Hearing on the one remaining murder  charge against Cisco, the only remaining defendant. The evidentiary  hearing is to examine the existence of wiretap evidence from 1971  which may have been "lost," hidden, or destroyed. While the  prosecution has denied that such wiretap evidence exists, a retired  San Francisco police officer has claimed knowledge of wiretaps in a  vile rant against the late Marilyn Buck while threatening to disrupt  her upcoming memorials, November 7th in Oakland and November 13th in  New York City.  The prosecution is acting as if such missing evidence is  insignificant and opposes even a limited evidentiary hearing.  There was again a substantial turnout of supporters in the courtroom  and hallways. Cisco sent his appreciation.  Come to court November 18th at 9:30 a.m., Department 20, 850 Bryant  St - for arguments on whether there will be an evidentiary hearing.  Representing our continuing support is crucial, even at these  "routine" court appearances.
