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.
