Judge Drops Parents’ Final Claim in Death on SF Pier

San Francisco (AP) – A federal judge has dismissed the final outstanding lawsuit filed by the parents of Kate Steinle, whose death on a San Francisco pier in 2015 touched off a national debate over sanctuary city policies.

Steinle’s parents sued the federal government and the ranger who left the gun in an unlocked vehicle in downtown San Francisco.

But a U.S. Magistrate ruled Monday that too much time had passed between when the gun was stolen and the crime on the pier for the government to be responsible.
