On June 5, 2018, Managing Shareholder Paul Beach and Associate Charlie Wang successfully defeated a motion for an injunction in a capital murder prosecution involving the death of a law enforcement officer. The criminal defendant sought to enjoin the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department from investigating the defendant’s incarceration activities, which were relevant to upcoming law and motion practice. After extensive briefing, multiple court appearances, and oral argument, the Court denied the motion for the injunction, which will result in the matter being adjudicated in a more fair and timely manner.
