Alright gang, thus begins my second day of pacing in the courthouse, waiting out a verdict in the civil suit against the Episcopal School of Dallas.
Channel 5 has joined me, and I’m thankful for the company. Looks like this trial is going to get some more diversified media coverage.
I’ll update as soon as I have more information.
UPDATE 9:45 a.m.
Attorneys from both sides just went into Judge D’Metria Benson’s chambers. I’m not sure if this is a routine thing or if it’s a signal of something else.
Attorneys are back out. And I’m bored. That is all.
There is a subpoena for John Eagle, chair of the board at ESD, sitting on the floor outside the courtroom. It was sent by Charla Aldous. All of this was learned from reading the subpoena, as neither side is willing to talk to me at this time.
Father Stephen Swann just walked past a man calling his name and trying to serve him a subpoena. The subpoena, which was left on the floor as well, was sent by Aldous. Both Swann and Eagle are being summoned to Benson’s chambers at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
Royce West is being interviewed by Dawn Tongish about his support of a sex offenders registration reform bill. He says the bill will only affect a sliver of offenders that were involved in “teenage love affairs” where one party was 18 and the other was 16.
The jury is in recess until 9:30 a.m. tomorrow.
