I AM SO MAD I WILL NOT BE HERE ON THE 24TH

Before I tell you what happened today in the GMS lawsuit, let me say this.  In her lawsuit against BISD Presas-Garcia alleged things were said in Executive Session.  When the tape was reviewed the statements could not be found.  So just because something is alleged does not mean it is real.

Now the COB has a clear record of hiding and destroying evidence.  Remember Mary Tipton and the destruction of the video in that case?  Unless Judge Pate allows a forensic specialist to go over the Executive Session tapes he may order the city to produce they are worthless.

I have been to court enough times to know even bad judges will deny the existence of evidence.  Once a judge actually held in front of me the letter I was looking for.  I failed to get a copy when I looked at the file.  So I sued to get it released. The judge actually held the letter in front of me and said, "you see this letter, it does not exist."  In another case, even the bailiff told the judge the other side clearly had on the table in open view the document I was seeking.  The judge ruled I and the bailiff were wrong.  He would not even allow the bailiff to bring him the document.  So for what I am about to tell you, only a forensic specialist on recordings can tell the court if the recordings are accurate.

The law allows Baker and Botts to request for in chambers review the recordings of specific Executive Sessions.

Here is what is in their pleading:

" For the reasons that follow, GMS requests that the Court compel Brownsville to provide the certified agendas and recordings for seven specific meetings to the Court for an in camera review, and if after review, the Court finds that if any matters contained therein exceeded the scope of closed meetings permitted by the Open Meetings Act, order that those portions of the recordings or agendas exceeding the scope of the Open Meeting’s Act’s closed meeting provisions be released to GMS and disclosed to the public, and that such portions may be admitted in evidence in this case."

Guys I know enough to know if there is any evidence in the recording they will never make it to the judge.  Rene Decoss has to decide is he loyal to the law or his puppet master.  He has a legal duty to inform the court if any city commissioner orders him to redact or destroy requested evidence.

BUT LIKE IN THE PRESAS-GARCIA CASE - THERE MAY NOT BE ANYTHING ON THE TAPES WHICH SHOW THE CITY BROKE THE LAW

But Baker and Botts knows the rule, you never ask the witness a question unless you know their answer before hand.  Baker and Botts already has the evidence they need, they are just going to allow the city to hang themselves.

If I were Charlie Cabler or Trey Mendez, about this time I would be asking, "am I walking into the lions den with no protection?"  

The answer is yes because no matter what they do in terms of votes related to the litigation they lose.  With the exception of  Rose Gowen there is not a clean city commissioner in this mess.  Regardless of who wins to avoid voting to protect the guilty they will have to rule with no allies.
