Kate Steinle's parents cannot sue sanctuary city for wrongful death, 9th Circuit rules

Kate Steinle's parents cannot sue sanctuary city for wrongful death, 9th Circuit rules | 28 March 2019 | A U.S. Appeals Court says the parents of Kate Steinle, who died in 2015 after an undocumented man shot her as she walked with her father on a San Francisco pier, cannot sue the city whose sanctuary policies were widely blamed for the tragedy. Steinle's killer, Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, was released by the San Francisco sheriff, Ross Mirkarimi, after a drug case against him was dropped. The sheriff’s office, which had ended contact between jail employees and immigration officials, ignored a request by federal authorities to hold Garcia-Zarate until they could assume custody and did not inform them that he was being released. The three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously decided to uphold a district court's 2017 dismissal of Steinle's parents' wrongful death lawsuit against San Francisco.
