Turns out Craig James is a multi-tasker. Now that son Adam’s career is done at Texas Tech, dad’s got time to save the country and go after the publisher of Mike Leach’s book.
It’s all about the troof. Or at least Craig’s version of that.
The legal document filed earlier this month lists 27 grounds James believes the authors used to mislead the general public and make defamatory statements against him.
The document states, “It is believed the publishers … would have conducted a fact-check investigation into the veracity of the allegations concerning Craig James prior to publishing the books. It is also believed that the publishers may have interviewed various witnesses concerning the author’s allegations and statements.”
There are only about two chapters in “Swing Your Sword” addressing James, Liggett said, and the claims are based on deposition testimony and public records.
“Everything in ‘Swing Your Sword’ is true,” he said.
Lanning isn’t surprised either.
All the claims made against James are statements he gave in depositions and sworn testimony, Lanning explained.
Can you think of anybody else who ran for the Senate while pursuing a defamation case? It’s gonna be fun to watch.
