graham is? a courtroom in charlottesville, virginia. his lawyers, the lawyer for jesse matthew are trying to get a judge to throw out key evidence collected by the police. david culver has the latest now on that investigation. david? vance, when you think about the murder trial in this case, we're several month away and it is set for july, but today is a major pretrial hearing and it is going on as you said right now and it involves the defense trying to question the credibility of several police officers and detectives. >> i want to point your attention to the ourtroom. you can see the light is still on even at this late hour and the third of 14 witnesses testifying late into the evening. many of these officers are telling about how they got a magistrate to sign off on a search of matthews' home and car. this former k-9 detective grilled by jesse matthews' defense attorneys asked repeatedly if he provided false information in his search for hannah graham. information that led to this
6:04 pm
search of matthews' charlottesville home and car after graham's disappearance. >> the defense is arguing that the search warrant which led to the discovery of evidence in jesse matthews' apartment was not a valid search warrant because they either lied or misled the magistrate about what the facts were. >> the bloodhound did not actually trace hannah to matthews' apartment. he said it did trace her descent to matthews' home. graham went missing september of 2014. security video caught her walking alone past a pub and then a gas station and then on to the downtown mall. that same camera caught matthew nearby. witnesses say the two went into a bar together and then she vanished. in court today we learned she had some of her personal belongings to the apartment and the passenger side of matthews' car and to the nearby dumpster,
6:05 pm
but the defense claimed investigators left out important information and should have never executed that search. >> the bottom line here is there was evidence found in jesse matthews' apartment that the defense doesn't want the jury to see or know about. >> so, david, the lawyers -- the defense lawyers want this evidence thrown out. you were talking to people around there. what sense is that the judge might do that. >> a former prosecutor said that is really unlikely and what the defense would have to prove is that all 14 or at least the majority of these 14 detectives and investigators intentionally misled or lied in order to get the magistrate to sign off on the search warrant and not like lie that the judge would go along with that especially with the testimony we've heard thus far. >> thanks. wendy? the iowa caucus takes place three weeks from today and there is a new poll. it shows that the national front-runners hillary clinton

rhetoric from both sides. >> reporter: groups of demonstrators standing side by side, but far apart. public sector unions want to keep their right to collect dues or fees from everyone they represent, whether a person is a union member or not. a group of california teachers is challenging the state law there and a court ruling banning so-called agency fees would affect public service unions everywhere including maryland. >> i would say probably over 200,000 people would be affected in the state of maryland and the reality is this is a turn away from democracy and a turn away from workers rites and that's at stake here. >> they're forcing public workers to pay dues or fees is wrong. >> understand the free writer concept, but the bigger concept is freedom. >> reporter: for organized labor any ruling limiting fees for non-members could hurt unions already fighting to retain memberships. as of 2014, 7.4 million workers
