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

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


In the San Francisco Police Department "Fajitagate" case, the Ninth Circuit held that San Francisco was not responsible for injuries sustained in an altercation between plaintiffs and off-duty police officers. 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.
