A federal judge says Mayor Jean Quan faces serious consequences if she skips another deposition about the pace of court-ordered changes in the police department.

Quan claims she missed her deposition on August 30 due to an emergency council meeting. She told ABC7 News Tuesday that she's moving her schedule around to make sure she doesn't miss another one.

Two local attorneys want the feds to take over Oakland's police department for failing to implement reforms ordered by a federal judge in 2003. Hearings on that are scheduled for December.
