MANTECA Police Chief Jodie Estarziau has been placed on administrative leave. The move by Acting City Manager Miranda Lutzow on Wednesday evening came hours after she terminated Public Works Director Mark Houghton. MANTECA City Council, when they meet tonight at 6 clock in closed session, could also decide the employment status of City Manager Tim Ogden and Finance Director Jeri Tejeda who were placed on administrative leave in September. In an email circulated to City employees on Wednesday, just minutes after the workday was completed, Lutzow announced the appointment of City Clerk Lisa Blackmon as Assistant City Manager. Blackmon will continue serving as City Clerk at this time. Deputy Public Works Director Koosun Kim was named Interim Director of that Department. It wasnt clear who was acting as Police Chief. Typically, in Estarziaus absence, one of the captains steps up. The Assistant City manager position was in the budget adopted in June by the City Council but wasnt filled until now. If Ogden and Tejeda ultimately are terminated and Estarziau doesnt return from her leave of absence, that will mean City will have departed with two thirds of its nine-member executive staff so far this year. Community Development Director Greg Showerman resigned earlier this month to take a lower level positon in the City of Modesto. Human Resources Director Joe Kristovich was released earlier this year. That leaves City attorney John Brinton, Fire Chief Kyle Shipherd, and Parks & Recreation Director Kevin Fant. The decision to put Estarziau on administrative leave came after a five-page document outlining grievances and issues concerning the Police Chief was sent to all five Council members as well as other parties earlier on Wednesday. While there was no signature attached to the document, it was presented as being by MANTECA Police officers. After listing number of concerns document near end note if approach with guaranteed confidentiality, several officers will provide statements, even her Command staff will cooperate. Estarziau was hired as Police Chief in February of 2017. Houghton has served as Public work Director since July of 2007. He was hired from Tuolumne County where he served as deputy Director of Public Works. Under City ordinances, whoever is City Manager hires and fires all City personnel. The City Council currently hire and Fire two positions: City Manager and City attorney. That says rarely do City managers either hire or fire key staff unilaterally without sounding decision out behind closed doors or without having a clear sense of direction that Council want the City to head. Lutzow, who replace Kristovich as human Resources Director, was selected by the Council two months ago by Council when Ogden was placed on administrative leave. Concerns had been raised about Ogden, prompted Council to order obtain outside legal counsel for vetting. Apparently that report is do and may be presented to the Council at this evening close session.

About Foundation

Plaintiffs bring this motion to compel the City to provide supplemental responses to plaintiffs' RFP. At issue are defendants' objections to RFP Nos. 2 3 4 5 6 18 26 30, and 38. Plaintiffs argue that these requests are relevant to their claim that the City and Chief BRICKER ratify shooting and treatment of Decedent in this case, and that they were deliberately indifferent in their duty to train, supervise and discipline their officers. Plaintiffs assert that proof of these claims is necessarily shown through these request documents, which will reveal notices and other issues regarding the City's policies of hiring, training, supervision, and control. Defendants object to plaintiffs' requests on grounds of relevance, privilege, and privacy. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26 establishes the scope of discovery and states in pertinent part: parties may obtain discovery regarding any nonprivileged matter that is relevant to any party's claim or defense, including existence, description, nature, custody, condition and location of any documents or other tangible things and identity and location of person who know of any discoverable matter. Feed. R. Civ. P. 26. COURT May order discovery of any matter relevant to subject matter involved in action. Relevant information need not be admissible at trial if discovery appears reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible Evidence. Relevance for purposes of discovery is defined very broadly. Garneau v. City of Seattle, 147 F. 3d 802 812. Party seeking to compel discovery has the burden of establishing that its request satisfies relevancy requirements of Rule 26. The party opposing discovery then has the burden of showing that discovery should be prohibit, and the burden of clarifying, explaining or supporting its objections, bryant v. Ochoa, 2009 WL 1390794 at * 1, and are required to carry the heavy burden of showing why discovery should be deny. Blankenship v. Hearst Corp., 519 F. 2d 418 429. The Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 34 permits each party to serve the opposing party with document requests within the scope of Rule 26 that are relevant to the subject matter involved in action. Fed. R. Civ. P. 26. Relevance within the meaning of Rule 26 is considerably broader than relevance for trial purposes. See Oppenheimer Fund v. Sanders, 437 US 340 351. For discovery purposes, relevance means only that materials sought are reasonably calculated to lead to discovery of admissible Evidence. Id. In responding to Rule 34 requests, response must either state that inspection and related activities will be permitted AS request or State objection to the request, including reasons. Fed. R. Civ. P. 34. Under Rule 37, party seeking discovery may move for order compelling answer, designation, production, or inspection if party fails to respond that inspection will be permittedor fails to permit inspectionas requested under Rule 34. Fed. R. Civ.
