More fallout from the Kelly Thomas case, as a drive to recall three Fullerton City Council members has cleared a major hurdle.

Organizers say they've collected more than enough signatures to stage an election to try to recall those council members.

Activists say the trio showed a lack of leadership amid demands for an investigation of Thomas's death.

Kelly Thomas was a mentally ill homeless man who died following a violent confrontation with Fullerton police.

One officer has been charged with second-degree murder; another with involuntary manslaughter.
