Snyder and Santoro v. City and County of San Francisco ("Fajitagate" case)

Memorandum Decision Affirming Summary Judgment In Favor of City in "Fajitagate" Case

The Court held that evidence of failure to discipline an officer for alleged on-duty use of unreasonable force did not establish that any City policy was the proximate cause of the incident.
