2015.24: What’s the Message?


When four felony prosecutors quit or are fired from the Harris County DA’s Office in a week, I try to tease out the pattern, or the message that is being sent.

  • #3 in the 182nd.
  • Chief in Court 4.
  • Assistant in Forfeiture Division.
  • Chief in the 176th.

What do these four lawyers (there may be more that I haven’t heard of) have in common? What message does their discharge send to the rest of the office? No idea. I haven’t heard any gossip that doesn’t strike me as bullshit. So this post is just a placeholder for now; I’ll return to it when I have a theory.

  1. Four days ago this looked like a fishing expedition to encourage some of your DA informants to elucidate why the four left in one week. That’s why they call it “fishing” and not “catching”.
