Councilman Leonard seeks to avoid deposition in Parker case

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – City Councilman John Leonard is subpoenaed to testify in the fight between city hall and businessman Ted Parker.  Leonard has filed a motion to quash the subpoena.  Back in 2006 the city sued Parker, and in turn Parker sued certain city officials. 

The city claims Parker's company overcharged the city for processing health insurance claims.  Parker claims the charges are false and damaged his company's reputation. Parker recently offered to settle out of court. 

Lawyers for City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld, employee Leisa Hutchenson, former Mayor David Miller, and Assistant City Manager Scott Snider still wish to take Leonard's deposition.
