Was your friend charged?
As part of your friend's criminal case, she can get a copy of the video. The prosecutor will let her view it or copy it as part of the discovery process.
Since you were not charged, the store is not obligated to give you a copy.
she can request it on her own? she is not reresented
Yes, she can. She needs to call the DA's office and request a copy.
Unfortunately, that is the only way is will be available to you, since the store is under no legal obligation to give you a copy.
Does that answer your question?
I know that you are a criminal atty. But do you feel this has any civil merit? This store was fined 600k for racial profiling in the past
Since you were not detained or charged, it is very unlikely that you have a case. If you had been wrongfully charged because of profiling, then, you could. But, you cannot sue the store because someone that works there has racist tenancies, especially if they don't act on them.
Is there anything else I can do for you?
