URGENT ALERT! This case was TOSSED by the Judge - never made it to trial.

Feeney said the indictments the grand jury handed down to Douglas and Zanotti in December 2007 weren’t supported by probable cause. Insufficient evidence regarding the former leaders’ alleged failure to oversee other law enforcement was also presented to the grand jury, Feeney said, and instructions given on “exigent circumstances” were inadequate.
The grand jury should have also been instructed on justifiable homicide by law enforcement officials, Feeney said.

Grand Jury convenes in Moore case
EUREKA -- The Humboldt County District Attorney's Office convened a criminal grand jury Monday to decide whether to bring charges in the death of Cheri Lyn Moore, who was shot by Eureka police after a 2006 standoff.
District Attorney Paul Gallegos has said he was considering such a move for months but because grand jury proceedings are held in secret by law, he did not commit to making such a move. Gallegos said Monday that the judge ruled the court would remain closed, and he consequently couldn't comment any further on the day's proceedings...
No reason to have these as secret deliberations.
