Wed Jan 26 2005Family of Rudy Cardenas Fights Dismissal of Lawsuit Against Killer Cop
Wed Jan 26 2005Case in Death of Rudy Cardenas Not Dismissed
2/4/05: A member of the Cardenas family was notified today that the motion for dismissal was denied.
On Friday morning, January 28, 2005, the family, friends, and supporters of Rudy Cardenas held a Press Conference at 8:00am just before a 9:00am hearing inside of the West Hedding Courthouse in San Jose. Michael Walker's attorneys presented arguments to a judge in an attempt to have the case against him dismissed. Walker is the state drug agent who killed Rudy Cardenas. In July of 2004, an open Grand Jury indicted Walker on voluntary manslaughter for shooting and killing Rudy Cardenas.
Cardenas family members and supporters spoke about the significance of carrying the Walker case to trial, especially given the fatal shootings by police in the San Jose area in recent weeks. (Early January | January 22nd) The family also gave updates on the family's legal activities since the grand jury decision. In a show of solidarity, Cardenas supporters all wore black, and packed the courtroom to show the court the public’s commitment to justice. Photos and Report
