LAS VEGAS -- Ross Goodman, the attorney for Erik Scott who was shot to death by Metro police, has filed a motion to review the evidence in this case.
Goodman filed the motion Wednesday to have Scott's family attend a pre-inquest hearing. The shooting is scheduled for a coroner's inquest on Sept. 22.
Scott was shot and killed by police on July 10, 2010 in front of the Summerlin Costco. The shooting set off a community controversy over police shootings and the coroner's inquest process.
The motion states that the State has the opportunity to bring any evidence or testimony before a coroner's jury, "regardless of whether it complies with the rules of evidence and without it being subject to cross-examination or rebuttal by the family."
