Cop lawyers slam charges

The Weekend Post - - World -

THE le­gal team de­fend­ing the former Min­neapo­lis po­lice of­fi­cer who shot dead Aus­tralian life coach Jus­tine Da­mond Ruszczyk has slammed the prose­cu­tion’s at­tempt to ques­tion his men­tal fit­ness and be­hav­iour on the job as “gravely flawed in both law and fact”.

Mo­hamed Noor’s lawyers, in a new court fil­ing, called on a Min­nesota Dis­trict Court judge to toss out the third-de­gree mur­der and man­slaugh­ter charges against him.

Pros­e­cu­tors pre­vi­ously cited re­ports by po­lice psy­chi­a­trists who ex­am­ined Noor dur­ing the pre-hir­ing process.
