>> he also took it to the ninth circuit. it went a couple of steps. any police officer is entitled to qualified users. it goes back hundreds of years. it says somebody like that needs to have a little bit more protection from it. they have to make executive decisions and it has to be an extreme case before they're going to be liable in damages for something. the trial looking at the case, they couldn't decide this question to be qualified as a matter of law. there's factual issues that has to be decided and the jury has to do that. the officer in sonoma, we had to get out of the case on summary judgment. what these reports said is they have to go to a jury. the. >> the officer shooting and

number one, officers on the scene. they have previously testified and in fact, it's a video where the officer shot and that's what he demonstrated he saw. we have expert testimony from the plaintiff and defendanten and the jury is going to have to decide was the gun in a position such that the officer reasonably could have felt in danger. if he thought it was a real ak47 and remember, he said at the top, the orange tip was not there, it was removed. he had to make a decision in a split second. it was protection from the ak47. it's a position that the gun was in. the evidence is in on that and the jury is going to have to decide was the gun at the side or had it been raised at that point. >> making a murder. the difference, he was the
