According to an Express News Report, A grievance committee with the State Bar of Texas ruled this week that former Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood committed professional misconduct about two years ago when he threatened two defense attorneys in a judge’s chambers during a murder trial.
LaHood, who recently went back to his private practice as an attorney, after he lost his bid for re-election as District Attorney, has repeatedly denied that he ever made the threats.
But after hearing evidence and arguments, an evidentiary panel decided otherwise.
Subsequently, LaHood was ordered to pay nearly $10,000 in attorney’s fees and expenses and was placed on probation with the state bar for a year.
In National News –
The Democrats will not be debating on Fox News this year.
The Democratic National Committee said Wednesday that “Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”
The organization cited recent reporting in The New Yorker about the mutually beneficial relationship between Fox and the Trump administration. DNC chair Tom Perez called it an “inappropriate relationship.”
The DNC has been in talks with many networks, including CNN and Fox, about holding primary season debates.
The first debate will take place this June on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo.
The second debate will take place in July on CNN. Television partners for the remaining debates have yet to be announced.
