Trial Briefs in the Martin Cotton Case

Posted By on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 at 4:53 PM

Last week we previewed the upcoming federal civil suit over the strange death of Martin Cotton II back in 2007. Cotton died of a subdural hematoma in the Humboldt County Jail following a violent struggle with the Eureka Police Department.

After the jump: The three trial briefs filed with the Federal District Court of Northern California. These three briefs lay out the case that will be made at trial by the plaintiffs -- Cotton's father and daughter -- as well as the two sets of defendants: the City of Eureka and individual EPD officers, and the County of Humboldt and county correctional officers.

The briefs are published through the amazing DocumentCloud service, which we just signed on to and which I'm trying to get a handle on.
