Sherri Rae Rasmussen, '85
UPDATE 5:20 PM
I emailed John Taylor for a comment on the decision. Here is his response:
First paragraph of opinion says it all: unfortunately cannot get to merits of case because of statute of limitation, which works an injustice here.No court or investigative body has ever said that this wasn't a cover up. The Rasmussens have incredible patience and perseverance and will continue pursuing their judicial remedies.
I just received the email notification a few minutes ago. The California Courts of Appeal affirmed the lower court's decision rejecting the civil suit filed by the Rasmussen family against the Los Angeles Police Department. HERE is the 14 page opinion issued by the justices.
The law firm of Taylor & Ring filed the complaint on behalf of the Rasmussen family. It is unknown at this time if the Rasmussen family will appeal to the California Supreme Court, which is not obligated to hear the appeal.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Rasmussen family.
