Another week another round of hearings and motions in the long-running ethics trial of Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, we thought we’d check out coverage and provide you some links in case you missed the latest headlines and editorials.
Hubbard’s lawyer has again filed for a continuance in the case – already delayed for a year and a half – this time because his attorney Mark White has had the “unprecedented privilege and honor” of being named dean of the American Academy of Trial Lawyers and is scheduled to speak to the group in Washington.
Former deputy attorney general Sonny Reagan also made headlines by appearing at a pretrial hearing to help Hubbard clear his name, arguing Hubbard should not be held accountable because prosecutors had a vendetta against him.
