WE WEREN’T A RUNAWAY GRAND JURY AND NOW WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!

THEY’VE TAKEN LEGAL ACTION!

Six members of the grand jury that indicted a Texas Supreme Court justice and his wife over a house fire have filed a lawsuit so they can speak about the case. By law, grand jury proceedings are secret. But the grand jury members say they want to disclose details they heard to a new grand jury. Attorney Jeffrey Dorrell says they also want defend themselves from accusations alleging they were a “runaway grand jury.”Dorrell served as the grand jury’s assistant foreman. They were part of a grand jury that last month indicted Texas Supreme Court Justice David Medina on a charge of tampering with a document and his wife Francisca Medina on an arson charge. The charges are related to a June 28 fire that destroyed the Medina’s house in the Houston suburb of Spring. Hours after the indictment, Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal dismissed the charges, citing “insufficient evidence.”
