As reported in the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) eClips on 10/29/13 and in the LA Times:
An LAPD analyst filed suit about the disregarding of DNA evidence, implicating a detective in a 1986 MURDER.
An analyst in the Los Angeles Police Department has filed a lawsuit alleging that an LAPD detective ignored evidence that proved a police officer murdered her boyfriend's wife in 1986. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff conducted a DNA test of saliva from a bite mark on the victim and the lead detective disregarded the results, saying the police officer "was not part of this." The lawsuit names the LAPD as defendant and alleges that the plaintiff was subjected to retaliation and harassment after bringing attention to the DNA tests. CAOC members John Taylor and Matthew McNicholas represent the plaintiff.
