The lawsuit against the City of Charlotte, could be headed for a jury trial, after a judge Thursday denied a motion claiming the evidence is so overwhelming the case should be decided now.
Charlotte City attorney Harcourt Futon told a judge yesterday:
“If Mr. Jackson had not been hired (by CMPD), he may very well have assaulted these individuals,” yeah right.
At this point you need to leap over to The Meck Deck and I'll let Jeff Taylor take it from here.
And apparently the judge bought into the madness.
But also out of the fog comes this little dribble while attorneys would not discuss Jackson's personnel file in court Thursday, they alluded to it frequently, hinting there are a total of three red flags prior to Jackson's hiring and results of his pre-hire psychological testing contained in the file.
Cedar Posts asked back on February, How did Marcus Jackson slip past the Civil Service Board?
Remember that during the hiring process 30 some candidates were submitted to the civil service board, along with Jackson for approval, and only one had background questions serious enough to require a "special" vote. But that was not Marcus Jackson. Leaving some to wonder if Jackson's file was "cleansed" before being submitted to the board.
