A federal judge ruled today that a trial in the case of Fouad Kaady, shot and killed by police in September of 2005 may proceed. As you all know, Fouad Kaady was only 27 when Officer William Bergin of the Sandy Police Department and Deputy David Willard of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office shot him only 28 seconds after responding to a call which found Kaady naked and bleeding after an accident. Fouad's family filed a lawsuit naming the two officers, the city and the county as defendants siting allegations of excessive force, civil rights violations and wrongful death.
The trial is scheduled to begin on April 28, 2009 in the courtroom of Judge Paul Papak and is on the docket to last three weeks.
