Support Keith Gore- 2/19

Here is an email I received from TCDLA. For those who are not familiar with the Keith Gore debacle here is a quick recap.

Dear Member:

Next Thursday, February 19, 2009 at 1:30 pm, a hearing will be held in the 418th District Court of Collin County on issues involving Keith Gore, the lawyer whose office was illegally searched. The Court will be hearing the state’s motion to disqualify Mr. Gore, as well as Mr. Gore’s motion to disqualify the DA’s office. The hearing is expected to last through Friday the 20th.

If you are free either of those days and can attend the hearing, please do so. The search of Mr. Gore’s office and seizure of evidence is something that could happen to any one of us. Your support will be greatly appreciated by Mr. Gore and the Texas criminal defense bar.

Thank you!

Rick Hagen
TCDLA President

I would encourage anyone who can make it to come and support Keith. The right of your attorney to not have his office illegally searched would seem so fundamental as not require your attendance at a hearing. Unfortunately, we are now only bad trial court ruling/appellate decision away from making these searches just another “exception” to your rights.

    I think you meant the 416th, right? Isn’t Judge Oldner sitting on this case? I suspect that he’ll do the right thing.

  2. Prosecutors can send investigators (their personal goon squads?) to go on illegal searches ??!!
    No !! Not here in Dallas !!
    Of course the judge will ‘do the right thing’!
    hahahahah, right
