1st Grand Jury Lawsuits

 CAUSES OF ACTION HAVE BEEN FILED BY THE

 1ST HARRIS COUNTY GRAND JURY TO INDICT

DAVID AND FRANCISCA MEDINA 

ON ARSON RELATED CHARGES  

BRIEF SUMMARY OF CAUSE NO. 2008-09025:

This case presents the novel issue of whether a criminal defendant indicted for felony evidence tampering may call a press conference for the specific purpose of disparaging the character of the grand jurors who indicted him—and then invoke the protections of grand jury secrecy to prevent the jurors he attacks from defending themselves. Plaintiffs ask the Court to declare that the civil privilege to respond to defamatory attacks supersedes grand jury secrecy under the unique facts of this case.
