A federal appeals court ruled Friday there is sufficient evidence to show a Sonoma County sheriff’s deputy was not in imminent danger when he shot and killed a Santa Rosa teenager carrying a replica assault rifle in 2013. The split ruling from a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals means the family of 13-year-old Andy Lopez can continue to pursue a wrongful death claim against sheriff’s Sgt. Erick Gelhaus, who mistook the gun for an AK-47 rifle.
An Oregon man was acquitted Monday of all charges in a one-punch fight in 2016 that killed his friend. Jurors found Bruce Lee Eyles, 31, of Eugene, not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Isaac Sturtevant, also 31 and from Eugene, who fell face-first onto a Santa Rosa sidewalk after Eyles hit him. The panel deliberated a total of about a day following five days of trial.
Sonoma County court officials Monday defended a controversial new, paperless computer system, saying delays in processing a more detailed level of data have not caused inmates to be held beyond their release dates. The $2.6 million Odyssey case management system debuted last month in criminal courtrooms after coming online earlier this year in the civil, probate and family law divisions. It allows internet access to many court records, replacing a 30-year-old system operated by the county.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
