California to pay $3M over death of teen holding pellet gun
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — Sonoma County will pay $3 million to settle a civil rights lawsuit filed by the family of a California teenager who was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy while holding a pellet gun.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is letting the family of a California teenager who was fatally shot while holding a pellet gun go forward with a lawsuit against authorities.
The Supreme Court declined Monday to get involved in the case, leaving in place lower court decisions in favor of 13-year-old Andy Lopez's family.
Court rejects immunity for deputy who shot California teen
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court says there is ample evidence for a jury to conclude that a California teenager carrying a toy gun did not pose an immediate danger to a sheriff's deputy who shot and killed him.
A divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday refused to find Sonoma County Sheriff's Deputy Erick Gelhaus exempt from liability for the 2013 shooting of 13-year-old Andy Lopez in Santa Rosa.
Former Lamar baseball coach Jim Gilligan will be inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Hall of Fame early next year, the organization announced Tuesday.
