Attorneys for the Pure News reporter who is suing the City of Springfield over police department actions are now seeking to have the city’s hired attorney disqualified from the case.
The city brought in the Noll Law Offices to represent it in two separate lawsuits filed by Calvin Christian… one over the destruction of police department internal affairs files, and the other alleging systematic harassment of Christian by Springfield cops.
But the new motion says Christian consulted with Jon Gray Noll about his legal issues back in 2012.
Even though Christian did not retain Noll, the motion says that seven-minute conversation included confidential information, and that should exclude Noll from now working for the other side.
