Update 9/23/2016 on Turk v Ray Reynolds and Somervell County Hospital District

Noticed that there has been a flurry of filings in the Turk lawsuit against Ray Reynolds and Somervell County Hospital District, including a change of the Judge in charge of the case. Background reading here 

Incidentally, this case is based upon, according to the lawsuit , an allegation that the Defendants violated (Turk's) rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments under the United States Constitution. He contends that the acts of the Defendants violated his rights to free speech, to petition the government, and for due process. Defendants assert that Dr Turk's claims for relief against the Hospital District are improper because he was employed by Glen Rose Healthcare Inc, not the Hospital Distirct. However, at this stage in the proceedings, as Dr Turk notes, the Court must accept as true the factual allegations contained in his complaint. The second amended complaint asserts that Dr Turk's employer is Somervell County Hospital District. A review of cases from courts in the Fifth Circuit reveals that the appropriate employeer in cases such as this a hospital district rather than a hospital or clinic. .....

As a side note, it's not clear to me if there has even been one meeting on the agenda to clue in the current board about this lawsuit, maybe I'm missing it from the agendas. 

Here's the docket sheet (You can also read this directly by using Pacer) 

The judge on the case is now Judge Robert Pitman

As noted before in a previous post, On April 24, 2017, the jury selection and trial will begin at 9:00 AM in Courtroom #1, United States Courthouse, 800 Franklin Ave, Waco,  Texas

Of interest is who the designated expert witnesses are for the plaintiff, includes Justus Peters.
