PEOPLE v. GNASS, F036655

Evidence showed that defendant was "financially interested" in contracts "made" by him in his "official capacity" as city attorney, under Government Code section 1090, but an indictment is dismissed where irregularities likely caused the grand jury to indict on less than reasonable or probable cause.
