Today, a judge ruled that former-Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach’s lawsuit can go forward as planned, but denied a motion for a speedy trial. From CBS Sports:
State District Judge William Sowder denied a motion by Leach’s attorneys to speed up taking depositions from school administrators and obtaining documents relevant to the case.
“I see no reason to give Mr. Leach any special treatment in this case,” the judge told the court. “So this case will take an ordinary course of action.”
Leach’s attorneys said Sowder’s denial doesn’t jeopardize their case.
“We’re pleased with the court’s decision today,” attorney Ted Liggett said after the hearing.
