Update: McCrory denied that he was in contempt of court, at the hearing this afternoon. Now, Judge Charles Hosack will set a date in September to hear the case.
A contempt of court hearing involving Bill McCrory, a supporter in Jim Brannon's long-running suit to overturn the 2009 Coeur d'Alene City Council election results, is scheduled for 3 o'clock this afternoon in 1st District Judge Charles Hosack's courtroom. Scott Reed, the attorney for Councilman Mike Kennedy, wants McCrory held in contempt of court for allegedly violating a confidentiality agreement in the case. According to an Aug. 13 Coeur d'Alene Press story, Reed complained that voter information pertaining to the recently-reviewed absentee envelopes wasn’t supposed to be shared outside the courtroom and Bill McCrory violated that privacy agreement. Stay tuned.
