Jury selection and opening statements begin Tuesday, June 14 in the civil rights trial of Knox v. City of Fresno, No. 1:14-CV-00799-EPG in Fresno District Court before the Hon. Erica P. Grosjean. Morrison & Foerster partners Arturo González and Wes Overson represent the family of Veronica Canter, a mentally ill woman who was fatally shot by Fresno police in March 2014. Phase 1 of the trial will challenge the reasonableness of the use of force; if necessary, Phase 2 will address the Fresno police department’s failure to properly train and discipline its officers.
