Case: ESTATE OF CREACH v. SPOKANE COUNTY WASHINGTON, No. CV-11-432-RMP (E.D. Washington, February 4, 2013)

Comment: This case got national attention and is a good example of the police doing a bad job in investigating possible misconduct by police. The district court firmly refuses qi, without a lot of deference to the police self-investigation, which I believe is the correct decision and tone for this case.
