Concerned that police leaked salacious details about the sudden death of Public Defender Jeff Adachi to the media, all but two members of the Board of Supervisors called for a hearing on the issue Tuesday.

Adachi, 59, died Friday evening after suffering an apparent heart attack at an apartment down the street from Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. A confidential police report that raised suspicion about the circumstances of his death grabbed headlines over the weekend.
