LOS ANGELES — A judge on Tuesday, Sept. 20, dismissed the city of Baldwin Park as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by relatives of a Covina couple killed during a police pursuit, in which the family members allege the negligent actions of three police agencies and the driver they were trying to pull over led to the 2019 deaths in West Covina. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel M. Crowley had issued a tentative ruling Monday granting the city of Baldwin Park's motion to be dropped from the case, which also names as defendants the city of West Covina, the state and Salvador Gomez, the alleged driver of the car that was being chased.
