There’s been a fair share of legal tap dancing from both sides in the Mike Leach-Texas Tech litigation, most of which is about what you’d expect, but one little allegation emerged which I hope gets fleshed out:
Exhibit C, the issue over affidavits from Athletic Trainer Steve Pincock who told three different versions of the so-called James “incident.”
This email written by regent Turner dated January first 2010 reads if Pincock quote “refuses or is reluctant to sign it should we ask whether he lied to the officials conducting an official investigation?”
He then hints Pat Campbell, Tech attorney could intervene.
“This is clearly, I think, no more than a veiled threat to Mr. pincock that if he didn’t change his affidavit and there’s some question to believe that the affidavits, subsequent affidavits were actually drafted by Spaeth Communications, a PR firm employed by Craig James.”
Texas Tech was letting Craig James directly take part in its investigation of Leach? Do tell, please. That’s the kind of lapse in judgment that can make for a truly entertaining courtroom encounter. If this case ever does see the inside of a courtroom, they ought to put it on pay-per-view.
