Neither attorney Starr Kelso or Jim Brannon could be reached for comment by SReporter Alison Boggs. But Kelso did provide the Coeur d'Alene Press and OpenCDA.com with a statement following the verdict issued by Judge Charles Hosack late Tuesday afternoon. Tom Hasslinger of the Coeur d'Alene Press writes: "Kelso declined to comment on the verdict until he has discussed it with Brannon. Brannon was out of town and could not be reached for comment. 'What further proceedings will be undertaken, if any, will be determined at that time,' Kelso wrote in a press release. Kelso did say that the ruling confirmed that several irregularities had taken place." You can read the full statement posted on OpenCDA.com here. And: You can read 20-page judge's decision here.
Question: Why does it seem that Jim Brannon rarely can be reached for comment?
