I’ve been out of town with little access to the Internet and high demands on my time and attention for most of the past three weeks. I’ve finally returned and have no more traveling planned.
I’ve got some news regarding my lawsuit for access to voting records.
I was able to discuss my case with several lawyers over the past few months. My thanks to everyone who has offered their support. Randy Rathbun of Depew Gillen Rathbun & McInteer, LC offered his services pro bono. He had a number of admirable qualities, but the one most important to me was his attitude that my goal of getting access to those records was attainable. He’s also a local attorney and a fellow Sedgwick County voter.
His only stipulation – that I let him have control of the legal case. That is, I had to let him make the decisions regarding his area of expertise rather than trying to run the show myself. Not an easy choice for me and I mulled it over both before and after putting on a 3-day seminar in South Korea last week. I try not to be a control freak, but apparently, people do perceive me that way sometimes. Anyway, I’ve agreed to that condition and look forward to working with him on this case.
I was able to speak with the Sedgwick County Courthouse regarding scheduling of a discovery hearing. It’s to be at 1:00 October 19th. My understanding is that this is a short hearing to determine the amount of time needed in order to schedule a trial. I don’t know more than that, but I’m grateful to have legal counsel arranged before this occurs.
Thank you Randy!
