As

noted on Reason 24/7, the family of Manuel Diaz, who was shot
by cops when he gave chase last summer, wanted a judge to order
Anaheim release documents related to the incident as well as to the
officer. They are suing the city and its police department for $50
million. The judge
ruled mostly in the family’s favor, keeping documents related
to the officer and access to him from the family “to preserve his
constitutional rights.” The officer, Nick Bennallack, was
cleared by the DA just last month in another fatal shooting a
year ago. Bennallack was back on duty two weeks after shooting Diaz
and the DA’s office is still investigating. The shooting of Diaz
and another man the next day led to community protests
that turned violent largely thanks to police.Reason TV covered the protests and attended a special city
council session in Anaheim in August:
