1. "A federal court jury on Tuesday cleared two Fresno police officers of using excessive force and unlawfully arresting a 15-year-old Hoover High School girl after school after a disturbance at a diner near campus that was crowded with students. Jurors deliberated just 35 minutes in what was a clear-cut victory for Fresno police Sgt. Larry Hustedde and officer Jeffrey Kaiser, who were the lone remaining defendants after the city and Chief Jerry Dyer were dismissed from the case by mutual consent of both sides."

2. "Following a five-day trial, a federal jury in Sacramento on Wednesday found 35-year-old Tony Salcedo of Fair Oaks guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and four counts of mail fraud for his involvement in a mortgage fraud scheme, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release."

3. "A jury on Wednesday awarded $125,000 to a Citrus Heights man who said he was falsely arrested and roughed up during a traffic stop by California Highway Patrol officers, but the jury declined to assess the more than $1 million in damages and penalties sought by the man’s lawyers." Sac Bee, 6/17/15. More details in my last blog post on the CHP ticket quota case.
