The case is essentialy dead in the water.
Excellent information and new information to me. And I suspect that you're probably correct that the civil case should now be dead.
However, Cutrufelli could still probably amend his civil complaint to allege that Mr. Leone's conduct resulting in Cutrufelli being shot was willful or wanton. I doubt that Cutrufelli could get anywhere with that, but it might take some discovery and a summary judgment motion for Leone to finally dispose of the civil suit.
And just for clarification, the correct citation is California Civil Code 847.
