Family Suing Over Fresno County Jail Death


21 Sep 2018

Morrison & Foerster partner Diana B. Kruze was interviewed by ABC 30’s Sontaya Rose for a broadcast report titled “Family suing over Fresno County Jail death.” The interview was conducted during a press conference held by MoFo on September 20, 2018, to announce a federal lawsuit the firm filed against Fresno County and the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. The lawsuit was filed pro bono on behalf of the parents of Lorenzo Herrera over his murder in the Fresno County Jail in March 2018.

"This could have been prevented,” said Ms. Kruze. “There is no adequate supervision. They are grossly understaffed. There are no cameras, or there are at least not sufficient cameras there."
