The attorneys for Calvin Christian say accusations leveled against themselves and their client are preposterous.
Filing last week from the Noll Law Office, who is defending the city in the Springfield Police IA file shred case, provided a defense including accusations that Christian’s attorney John Meyers knew of the change in retention of IA files and worked with Christian and attorney Don Craven for monetary gain.
Meyers says testimony in depositions this far contradicts that assertion.
A judge Thursday urged both side to agree to a schedule to depose five city officials, including Mayor Mike Houston.
A decision on whether Christian will be deposed will may come sometime next month.
