Supreme Court Strikes Down New Inquest Process
Supreme Court Strikes Down New Inquest Process

AIR DATE: October 31, 2012

The Nevada Supreme Court struck down changes made to the Clark County Coroner's inquest process. The justices ruled the new process unconstitutionally intruded on the Legislature's exclusive authority to determine the jurisdiction of justices of the peace. The new process added a lawyer for the families of victims to inquests, and many police complained that the process infringed upon their constitutional rights. We explore what the latest court decision means for the inquests into police officer shootings.
