Hearing on motion to vacate $3.5-million default judgment has been postponed again, now to June 18
a motion to vacate a $3.5-million default judgment in the Jessica Medeiros Garrison case has been postponed for a second time. The hearing originally was scheduled May 20 in Jefferson County Circuit Court, but Judge Don Blankenship, on his own motion, moved it to June 4.
Blankenship now has reset the hearing for 10 a.m. on June 18 in Room 600 of the Jefferson County Courthouse. Attorney Davy Hay, of Prattville, is representing me in the case.
Bill Baxley, of Birmingham, represents Garrison, the former campaign manager for Attorney General Luther Strange. Baxley also has represented a number of individuals in the ongoing grand-jury investigation in Lee County, with indicted House Speaker Mike Hubbard at its center. In at least one instance, Baxley co-represented a party in Lee County with Rob Riley, who filed a dubious defamation lawsuit that led to my five-month incarceration.
