Jessica McElfresh Court Hearing/Court Support

  • Dept. 2004 Superior Court 1100 Union Street San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)


Hi all,

The hearing last week regarding the prosecution's attempt to quash my subpoenas went very, very well. The judge was not interested in jockeying over discovery and preferred to cut to the chase. To that end, he wants any outstanding discovery produced before the prelim, ideally by the next hearing on 4/26. He wants a few items I've been requesting for awhile -- like, an affidavit for one of the search warrants in the case and a sealed filing the prosecution filed with a judge to get him to breach attorney-client privilege back before I was charged -- produced to him so he can review them for investigatory privilege and determine what, if anything, to hold back as privileged. He also wants the same for the documents I had subpoenaed from the City of San Diego, if privilege is claimed on some documents.

We will be back in court at 1:00 PM on Thursday, April 26. We will be before Judge So in Department 2004 at the new downtown courthouse, located at 1100 Union Street, San Diego, Ca. 92101. For locals, that time isn't a typo. I think the court is trying to squeeze us in to keep discovery moving.

I thank everyone who attended last week, especially given the last-minute notice. It was much, much appreciated by me and my family. I would greatly appreciate if people can come next week for the hearing in front of Judge So.

Thank you again,

Jessica McElfresh
