A video of the wife of suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was again the subject of a legal battle Tuesday as his suspension proceedings move forward haltingly.

The City Attorney’s Office is seeking to use a video of Eliana Lopez, who was taped by a neighbor Jan. 1 crying and pointing to a bruise on her arm that she said was caused when Mirkarimi grabbed her during an argument the previous day.

Lopez’s attorney Paula Canny asked for a delay so she could file further briefs on the matter. Superior Court Judge Garrett Wong agreed to delay a ruling on the issue until May 15.
