9th Circuit Seal II(1)

Monday, February 24, 2014 – 03:00 p.m

The appeal of a U.S. District Court ruling, dismissing two civil rights claims, by Rachel Lewis, widow of real estate executive David Lewis, was denied by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday.

The case now appears headed back to San Bernardino County Superior Court where a wrongful death claim is set to be litigated. That is unless a request is made to have the case reheard, by the entire court, en banc, or appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The case is now back to Superior Court Judge Janet Frangie in Rancho Cucamonga.

The next hearing is scheduled for April 23 at 08:30 a.m. in Department R-9.
