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.
