D.A. Dow Plans Appeal

San Luis Obispo County D.A. Dan Dow plans to appeal a judge’s decision that disqualified his entire office from prosecuting Tianna Arata and two others related to a Black Lives Matters protest in July. He told Dave Congalton “It is very likely that either the attorney general or my office — or both — will file a notice of appeal within the next few days.” He later added, “I believe the law is on our side”. Arata and her co-defendants are scheduled for a trial setting conference on January 19th.
