After months of deliberation, the Clark County Commission finally came up with a revamped process for coroner's inquests into deaths caused by police. But for more than a year, the police unions have tried to kill the new procedures in both the state legislature and the state and federal courts. So far, the process has survived. It faces one more review in the Nevada Supreme Court but the first of the new inquests is scheduled to begin Thursday. We look at how the process will change and what we should expect to hear.
