Add comment on:UC8 Reporter: Update on Delays of Hearing for Motion to Quash UCPD Search Warrant
A hearing on the motion to quash the search warrant the University of California police department secured for the photographs of mine they seized on the night of December 11th, 2009 has twice been delayed. First, because the District Attorney's office claimed not to be aware of my motion and, second, because UC claimed not to be prepared even though they had been originally served with notice of the motion seven weeks prior to their request for a continuance. The delays were disappointing and frustrating, compounding the injuries I seek to correct by quashing the warrant, but at the second scheduled hearing Judge Yolanda Northridge did issue a temporary injunction against any use of the photographs for investigative purposes and I was provided copies of most of my photographs, the first time I had seen them. Additionally, any ruling issued now will not be a default ruling due to opposition not showing up, but rather a more meaningful one based on the merits of the motion itself. With no more excuses for delay, the hearing is finally set for June 18th at 2pm.
