UPDATE: Tom Steenson, an attorney representing the Chasse family, released a statement this afternoon noting that the protective order obtained by the city and other defendants in the lawsuit prevents the release of investigative documents in the case.
"As a result of this protective order, the Chasse family and their attorneys have been unable to release documents and other information which they have learned in the course of the lawsuit about the Police Bureau's investigations into James' death. Unfortunately, that remains true today, preventing the Chasse family and their attorneys from commenting on the subject matter of the Police Bureau's News Release today and from releasing documents and information about those investigations which it appears the City has not released to the public."
"The Chasse family and their attorneys are very sorry that they cannot comment on these events at this time. However, they are taking immediate steps to ask the Court to set aside the protective order which the City and Chief Sizer have violated today by their release of documents and information which are subject to the order. If the Court grants our renewed motion, we will then be in a position to release documents and information about the Police Bureau's investigations into James' death which the City does not appear to be releasing and to comment, like the City and Chief Sizer have done today, on those investigations and related matters."
