Body Search Lawsuit: A district judge in Dallas has awarded a wrongly accused couple $6.8 million over the bogus reports of a mass grave in the Hardin area back in June 2011. That judgment is against the self-proclaimed psychic whose tips to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department set off a search of the couple’s property between Hardin and Hull-Dasietta. Gena Charleston and Joe Bankston filed suit after the wild goose chase. Now, 193rd District Judge Carl Ginsberg has ordered the self-proclaimed physic to pay the couple millions of dollars after she failed to appear for a May 7 bench trial.

Mayo Request: Liberty ISD trustee Ron Mayo has filed a Freedom of Information request with the school district for whom he serves. That FOI is dated two days after Ron and Tracy Mayo withdrew their legal action against the district over punishment meted out to their son following a fight at Liberty High School. KSHN reported the Mayo family sought a restraining order in the 253rd District Court against the school. district to keep their son from having to take end-of-course exams. In an interview after the Mayos withdrew their legal action, Ron Mayo expressed anger toward LISD Assistant Superintendent and Legal Counsel Randy Gunter. Mr. Mayo also said he was angry that the district spent money to fight his family’s legal challenge. However, it’s noteworthy that the Mayos asked for their legal fees to be paid by LISD in that action. Based on a tip from a listener, we filed a Freedom of Information request to obtain a copy of Mayo’s documents. In Ron Mayo’s Freedom of Information request, he seeks detailed employment and financial information on Randy Gunter and copies of payments to the law firm that represented the district against the Mayo family’s legal challenge.
