Aurora to bar public from appeal hearings for officers involved in Elijah McClain photo scandal

Aurora Sentinel: A spokesperson for the City of Aurora clarified Tuesday that officials will heed requests from a trio of fired Aurora police officers to close their upcoming appeal hearings to the public.

City spokesman Michael Bryant said Officers Erica Marrero, Kyle Dittrich and Jason Rosenblatt asked city officials to bar the public from listening to their hearings before the city’s three current civil service commissioners in the coming weeks. Per the city charter, officials will honor those requests, Bryant said.

“It is part of city charter that the appellant has the right to express a desire to close the hearing to the public, which is the case for both of these hearings,” Bryant wrote in an email.
