The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office has refuted allegations that the office failed to properly notify the victim of an alleged anti-Asian attack of his constitutional rights ahead of a plea deal with his attacker, which are claims at the center of a lawsuit against District Attorney Chesa Boudin.

The King & Spalding legal team that filed the complaint Monday contends that the office did communicate with their client, a 69-year-old Vietnamese man, but failed to mention that prosecutors were considering a plea deal with his attacker and did not give him the opportunity to confer with the prosecution ahead of the plea deal, as required under California law.
