Marjorie Knoller case inches forward

Fresh off the Bay City News wire (via CBS 5). Here's the latest for those of you still obsessed with the never ending Marjorie Knoller saga:

"The possible retrial of Marjorie Knoller, whose second-degree murder conviction for the dog mauling death of Diane Whipple in 2001 was later reduced to involuntary manslaughter, moved forward today with a decision not to allow the original trial judge to hear the matter.

San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge David Ballati this morning denied a motion by Knoller's attorney Dennis Riordan to have Judge James Warren, the original trial judge, come out of retirement to rule on the case.

Superior Court Judge Charlotte Woolard is now the judge appointed to rule on whether a retrial will be granted. A further status conference in the case is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
