In the documents that were filed on Thursday, the motions state that fired Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach wants his case in front of a jury in less than two months. The two motions filed at 4 p.m. Thursday are related to the lawsuit filed right after Mike Leach was suspended. The 105 page document asked the court to speed up the legal process.

Sometime in the next ten days Ted Liggett, Leach's attorney, wants to interview for the court record TTU President Guy Bailey, Chancellor Kent Hance, Athletic Director Gerald Myers, and the player who accused Leach of mistreating him Adam James.
