When will the trial of Dr. James Ellington, the former medical examiner who was found to have mishandled the death of Oscar Grant, be over?
It’s a question that has dogged the inquest for the past week.
The judge, the San Antonio City Attorney, and other members of the San Antonian City Council have all argued that the case needs to be resolved before the inquest can proceed.
But a decision to close the case without a final determination from the court is a step that could cause some uncertainty for the community.
Dr. Ellingson has been on trial since October on charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal misconduct, but his lawyers are hoping that the coroner will find that the evidence is not sufficient to convict him of the murder.
It was not clear what the date would be for the conclusion of the inquest.
There has been a long-running feud between Ellingtons family and the city of San Antonio, with the family having sought to have the coroner to conduct the inquest as quickly as possible.
In the past few weeks, however, there have been reports that the judge, District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro, and San Antonio Police Chief David Lopez have pushed back against the idea of moving forward without a ruling from the coroner.
Cannizzaro said in an interview with the Associated Press last week that he is not opposed to doing it as soon as possible, but that it is a matter for the coroner and that he would need to get approval from the county prosecutor before it would be possible.
Ellington’s attorney, David A. Kuczynski, told the Associated News last week the city is willing to do it as early as May, but said that he was still waiting for a ruling on whether the coroner can do it.
Kuczynski said that while the family has been asking the coroner for more time, the city has been pushing back, and he said that if they are not satisfied, they will try to have a trial in the fall.
Kucyns lawyers have said that Ellingons trial has been scheduled for April, and that they will not have a decision until May.
“They have the date and time to resolve this,” Kucyn, who is from Colorado, told ABC News.
“I have been working with them all week.
I think it’s time to move forward.
But Kucy said that his client is still hopeful that the city will move forward with the inquest, and Kuczy also told the AP that he will fight for a new trial.”
It’s about the city.” “
It’s not about me.
It’s about the city.”
A new trial, Kucynski added, “will not help Dr. Elington.”
The latest developments in the Oscar Grant case came as San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor announced that a group of community members had called on her to step down, and she did not.
Taylor told the media that she was stepping down in the wake of what she described as the mishandling of the case by the coroner, and the fact that the state’s Attorney General’s Office had called the case “a political witch hunt.”
Taylor also told ABC that she did nothing to delay the start of the trial.
“I didn’t get into it in the way that I could have,” Taylor said.
She added that she would take the opportunity to look at all options for moving forward.
“If this was a political witch-hunt, and if it was politically motivated, then that’s a very bad thing for the city to do.
San Antonio is not a city of fools,” Taylor added.
Ellingson’s family and supporters have said for months that they want to move ahead with the coronavirus inquest, but the city and county have both maintained that the inquest is a criminal matter and that any delays in moving forward are not the city’s responsibility.
