The other day in the Bay Area News Group reported on the Lancaster Vs City of pleasanton case. City Attourney Jonathan Lowell was quated as saying the claims against Martens lacked any merrit. I wonder why his charges were dropped? The actions of the Pleasanton Police in this matter are criminal. I woukd sugest that officer martens testimony in the future is worth nothing as he claimed to have found drugs on Lancaster then the DA drops charges due to lack of evidence? So quite clear the martens acusations lacked merrit I don't think so Mr. Lowell. The more you try and sweep it under the rug the more foolish you look. The attourney genrals office or the FBI should investigate the matter maybe they will.

The only criminal in this matter is the drug using, illegal firearms possessing, deadbeat dad known as brian lancaster. let us not forget, lancaster's own attourney asked the judge to dismiss martens from the lawsuit. that's the very definition of a bogus claim "lacking merit".

Does anyone know of an unbiased source that describes this entire matter? Something besides the PW reporting or the comments found in the forums. Either this is a tempest in a teapot, with a lot of minor players attempting to sway the public to their particular views, or it's truly a story worth reading about.

You can always drive to the courthouse in San Francisco and look at the case, right there on paper and make up your own mind. Or wait until the case is heard, I'm sure there will be reporting on it.

The whole case has been a colossal waste of time and valuable resources. One dismissal after another and straight down the drain, just where this cowards bogus lawsuit belongs. They should put fatso on a hard labor prison program to pay back all the money he's wasted with his pathetic whiny finger pointing vomit!

Guess the Judge didn't care for the weepy narrative with all the delusions and lies. Did Lancaster forget to bring his Purple Heart Medal? Lol... See ya hero!!!

Joe, more like a tempest in a teacup. Just ONE minor player spewing his manipulative fodder everywhere. Who do you think wrote this "story"?? There are no "unbiased" stories because all other parties he involved in his world of make-believe have declined to comment to the media.
