Why Didn't County Attorney Andy Lucas Keep Extensive Lawsuit Materials in his file?? re: State of Texas ex rel Best v Harper

30 November 2019 at 9:54:05 AM

Frankly, I am just astonished at this. Lucas apparently didn't keep much at all, including emails or text messages, in his file about a case he was specifically pursuing. I already know he made no effort to investigate whether Best's petition or the TOMA charges had merit.This means that Best kept better records than the Somervell County Attorney! 

Darrell Best is in the second half of this video showing the materials he brought to the deposition that were between he and Lucas.

From the final hearing transcript on August 20, 2019
Also, Lucas didn't seek a transcript of the "Motion" claim that Best had in his petition. Watch this. If Lucas had asked Ray Reynolds for the minutes (which, incidentally, can be easily found on the Somervell County Hospital District website) , then why weren't they in his file? 
On a different matter, I had done a Public Information Request in the past, in 2016,  of Andy Lucas and was told he didn't keep email records.
I was appalled, frankly, and did some checking to find out what the policy was for Somervell County to keep emails, and called in to Texas State Library and Archives Commission. I was told that if an email involved public business or financial information, it was supposed to be retained for 2 years. That includes EVERY Somervell County Commissioner and the Judge.  How much more should an elected county attorney keep records, including emails, about a legal case he pursues. Here is a complaint I sent at the time, on March 1, 2016 to the Office of Attorney General. I still feel exactly the same. 
I don't know about you, dear reader, but taking notes is in order to KEEP your memory fresh as well as be able to prove this or that. Why doesn't Lucas?
