TTU lawyers will question Leach Friday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Questioning continues Friday morning in the Mike Leach lawsuit against Texas Tech. The former coach will answer questions from Texas Tech University's lawyers. Leach's lawyers questioned Tech Chancellor Kent Hance under oath Thursday, and Friday it is Leach's turn.

Earlier this week, NewsChannel 11 reported Leach's attorneys subpoenaed Frenship-ISD for documents that may include conversations about enrolling members of the Tuberville family in the district. Tech attorneys filed a brief with the court supporting FISD's motion for a protective order. 

"We are extremely disappointed that Coach Leach and his attorneys have chosen to invade the privacy of Coach Tuberville and his family," writes Texas Tech's attorney Dicky Grigg. "However, if there are documents that would indicate when the district was contacted by anyone concerning the Tuberville children, disclosing those documents or the date of first contact would dispel the ridiculous conspiracy theory that Coach Leach is fueling," adds Grigg.

Leach's legal team issued this statement after Thursday's deposition, "This is certainly not desperation, nor are we attempting to go after anyone's children. We are representing our client as effectively as we can and to find out the truth."

Tech fired Leach on December 30th amid allegations of mistreatment of wide receiver Adam James. Attorneys on both sides will question James and his father, ESPN analyst Craig James on Saturday. The next scheduled hearing in court is Monday, March 26th to discuss the subpoena issued to Frenship ISD.
