DA Kamala Harris' Challenge to Crime Lab Ruling Rejected

Prosecutors in the office of District Attorney Kamala Harris have failed in their efforts to prove a bias claim against the judge who reprimanded the DA's office for its handling of a scandal at the San Francisco Police Department's drug-testing lab.

In May, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo, while overseeing a number of criminal cases that might have been affected by alleged drug-tampering and theft at the lab, ruled that Harris had not complied with her ethical obligations to inform defense attorneys of the facility's problems. The ruling was a major blow to Harris as she campaigns to be California's next attorney general.
