James McManis Mentioned in the San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA - December 2015

James McManis was mentioned in a December 17, 2015 San Jose Mercury News article regarding the settlement of a wrongful-death suit brought by the survivors of Brandon Marshall. The suit alleged that Santa Clara County deputies were overly aggressive and missed opportunities to de-escalate a confrontation with Marshall, resulting in his death. The article, titled “Santa Clara Co. Settles with Family of Roku Engineer Fatally Shot by Deputy in 2013,” describes the settlement as $2 million and a pledge from the Sheriff's Office to provide its deputies with Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training, specialized instruction in de-escalating conflicts with persons having mental-health issues.
