Judge lifts Mirkarimi stay-away order; Ethics won’t probe perjury claim against mayor

Friday, July 20, 2012

Today’s developments on the Ross Mirkarimi front:

  • The Ethics Commission has decided not to subpoena four witnesses that the suspended sheriff’s attorneys say could prove Mayor Ed Lee perjured himself before the commission last week.
  • A judge this morning lifted the stay-away order in effect since March 25 that prevented the sheriff and his wife, Eliana Lopez from seeing each other. They appeared briefly before cameras, before leaving the Hall of Justice together.

Also: Video of Eliana Lopez’s testimony Wednesday and Thursday.

Mirkarimi loyalists stick by the sheriff through two extraordinary days of testimony by his wife, camping out for hours to get a seat at the hearing.
