Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo chastised San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris' office for its handling of the cases related to the San Francisco crime lab drug scandal.

Judge Massullo declared that prosecutors violated defendants' rights by hiding damaging information about Deborah Madden, the police drug lab technician accused of stealing and using cocaine evidence.

Judge Massullo, however, refused the request to dismiss 40 cases affected by the scandal on the grounds of prosecutorial misconduct leaving it up to the judges to rule on each individual case.
