The legal case against a Canandaigua police officer and the city of Canandaigua following a fatal shooting in 2017 is moving forward.
The Daily Messenger reports that a judge rendered a decision, which was released on Wednesday involving the fatal shooting of Sandy Guardiola.
Major elements of the suit were not dismissed. It alleges that the officer entered the home unlawfully, used excessive force, and wrongfully shot-and-killed Guardiola.
U.S. District Judge David Larimer also failed to dismiss certain allegations against the City of Canandaigua Police Department, according to The Messenger.
A grand jury did not bring charges against Sgt. Scott Kadien, who fatally shot Guardiola.
