Christian File-Shredding Lawsuit Dismissed After Settlement Finalized; Aldermen Defend Vote


Alderman Frank Edwards says the City Council can, and should, keep pressure on Mayor Mike Houston over the police file shredding scandal… even though aldermen approved a lawsuit settlement without making any additional demands for accountability from the administration. 

 

Edwards had complained that the $100,000 settlement with Calvin Christian did not disclose enough about what led to the file shredding.  But Edwards voted in favor of it anyway, and a judge dismissed the case at the request of both sides Wednesday morning. 

 

Edwards says he will continue pushing for the release of executive session minutes that can shed more light on the situation… and says the upcoming city budget process could be another way to demand more transparency.
