Torres v. City of Los Angeles, 06-55817
In a civil rights action against the City of Los Angeles, the LAPD, and four detectives arising from plaintiff's arrest on murder charges and 162 days of incarceration prior to his release, rulings in favor of defendants are affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) dismissal of plaintiffs' case against one detective and of plaintiffs section 1983 claim against another detective was proper; but 2) judgment as a matter of law as to two detectives was error; and 3) the district court erred in part as to its denial of plaintiffs' in limine motions.
