OAKLAND, Calif., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer release the following: U.S. Northern District Judge Edward Chen set Michael Gressett's case against Contra Costa County, Former District Attorney Robert Kochly, Former Contra Costa County Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Paul Sequeira, Former Contra Costa County Chief Deputy District Attorney Brian Baker; Chief Investigator Gene Greenwald; Darryl Jackson, Paul Mulligan for trial.  The trial will commence on May 4, 2015 almost seven years to the date after the false accusations of rape for which he was maliciously prosecuted. 

Before the case set for trial, Gressett's case against former judge and 2010 Contra Costa District Attorney candidate, Dan O'Malley, was resolved following a settlement conference.

Former Contra Costa County Deputy District Attorney Michael Gressett filed a civil lawsuit for a politically motivated malicious prosecution, defamation and violation of his constitutional rights after his criminal case was dismissed because his due process rights were violated when Defendants withheld exculpatory evidence from a Grand Jury.  The criminal prosecution of Gressett was a hot button issue in the contentious Contra Costa County District Attorneys' race of 2010. 

Gressett's counsel, Gary Gwilliam of Oakland, said, "Michael Gressett is looking forward to finally having his day in court after seven years of having his name besmirched by the wrongful and malicious conduct of the Defendants in this case.  We look forward to shining some light on the political corruption of the Defendants who thankfully are no longer in power in Contra Costa County."

Mr. Gressett is available for interview by contacting the Law Offices of Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer.  The case number is 3:12-cv-03798-EMC.
