Backlog of Coroner's Inquests
Backlog of Coroner's Inquests

AIR DATE: July 29, 2011

The coroner's office has a backlog of 14 inquests into police-related shootings.  Thanks to a legal battle, it may not get to those inquests anytime soon.  The inquest process was recently revamped after a series of officer-related shootings, but a recent court challenge filed by three Metro police officers is delaying that process.  The last coroner's inquest was nine months ago, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that they might not catch up until 2013.  So what happened?  What led to this delay, and when might families and police next see an inquest process?
