Ed Schultz in Court…
I’ve been ignoring this story so far because I seriously questioned if it would ever make it to court. It’s not the kind of thing one would think Ed Schultz would want to go through. Few people in the public spotlight of cable news let things get this far with a few notable exceptions. But apparently Schultz does want it to get to trial. The Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein writes about the latest in the lawsuit.
Lawyers for Schultz and Michael Queen, the former business partner he allegedly bamboozled, filed a pre-trial statement Monday laying out exhibits and witnesses for the trial.
They include: former NBC News president Steve Capus, CNN worldwide president Jeffrey Zucker, MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter (gee, he’ll be objective), former NBC “Meet the Press” director Max Schindler and Schultz’s wife, Wendy.
The video recorded deposition of MSNBC president Phil Griffin will be played in part.
Schultz himself is expected to testify for up to five hours.
This could prove highly entertaining..
