Motion for New Trial in Mock-Nazi Salute Case
Robert Norse
The False Arrest civil trial of two former Santa Cruz Mayors, Tim Fitzmaurice and Christopher Krohn, ended in verdicts in their favor late last year in a federal courtroom in San Jose. My attorneys--David Beauvais and Kate Wells--have now moved for a new trial, claiming the jury verdict should be thrown out because it is against the overwhelming weight of the evidence and for other reasons. City attorney Kovocevitch disputes this in a shorter brief. The case will be heard Friday June 7th 9 PM in Federal Court. For those following the case , here is the transcript of last year's trial and the motions pro and con for a new trial.
