Rob Adams Autopsy: A press conference held by national civil rights attorney Ben Crump and Los Angeles attorney Bradley Gage, held on Aug. 19, 2022, showing results of an independent autopsy commissioned by Adams’ family. The family has filed a $100 million federal lawsuit.

The motion filed by San Bernardino’s attorneys would prevent any legal proceedings from happening while the District Attorney is reviewing the case.

The city is arguing that the discovery from this case including testimony from the officer who shot Rob Adams could impact the ongoing criminal investigation.

Adams was shot and killed last July by San Bernardino Police officer Michael Yuen.

An independent autopsy revealed that Adams was shot seven times mostly in the back, as he was running away.

Bradley Gage who is an attorney for Adams’ family says San Bernardino’s legal strategy is clear .

“They want to delay the proceedings anyway and every way possible," said Gage.

Gage alleges that the city has denied his requests for public records including unredacted video and audio of the shooting.

Reporting from KVCRreveals that both officers involved in the shooting have histories of use-of-force.

“I think that the actions of the city in this case, throughout, have demonstrated a real fear by them," said Gage.

Both the city and attorneys representing San Bernardino Police did not return requests for comment.
