The U.S. Court of Appeals reinstated a lawsuit against one of three Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies who were accused in civil actions of killing a Van Nuys woman after a night of heavy drinking and sex in 1988, an attorney for the woman's family said Saturday. U.S. District Judge Mariana R.

Two of three Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies accused of killing a Van Nuys woman have been dropped from a lawsuit filed by the dead woman's mother, the attorney for the mother said Thursday. Stephen Yagman said he filed documents that dismissed deputies Michael Turner and Robert Waters from the case on Tuesday, one day after a federal judge threatened to dismiss the lawsuit unless evidence was presented to support the allegations within 90 days.

The mother of a Van Nuys woman who was slain seven months ago, prompting a lawsuit that claims a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy killed her, testified Thursday at a closed Los Angeles County Grand Jury hearing on the unsolved killing, authorities said. Mary Postma, whose daughter, Catherine M. Braley, 26, was found dead Jan. 15 in a parking lot, was questioned by the grand jury for about an hour. But neither Postma nor the district attorney's office would disclose what she had been asked.

A federal court jury was unable to reach a verdict Thursday in a $10-million wrongful death case in which an off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was accused of killing a 26-year-old Van Nuys woman after a night of heavy drinking and sex. The four-man, four-woman jury would have needed to reach a unanimous verdict to hold Robert Mallon, a 44-year-old sheriff's detective in special investigations, responsible for the death of Catherine Braley seven years ago.

A federal judge said Monday she will dismiss a $10-million lawsuit that alleged three Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were responsible for the death of a Van Nuys woman after an evening of drinking. However, U.S. District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer said that a wrongful death claim also contained in the lawsuit could be refiled in Superior Court. Because the deputies had not acted in their official capacity as law enforcement officers while they were with Catherine Braley, Pfaelzer said she will grant the deputies' request to dismiss a civil rights claim filed by Braley's mother, Mary Postma of Van Nuys.

A federal judge refused Wednesday to dismiss a lawsuit that accuses three Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies of the murder of a Van Nuys woman and seeks $10 million in damages. The lawsuit, filed earlier this month against Deputies Robert Waters, Robert Mallon and a third man identified only as Mike, alleges the men were acting under the "color of law," or their authority as deputies, when they met Catherine Braley at a Van Nuys bar and later killed her when she refused to have sex with them.
