LEE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard's defense attorneys have filed a motion to retrieve information from the state that is being withheld. The motion was filed after a series of emails were released by the prosecution the defense claims, were meant to embarrass Hubbard.
According to court documents, Hubbard's attorneys have filed the motion on the terms of the
Brady v. Madison
case, to obtain that information that is exculpatory. In the motion it states that the request is being made for the additional information after a portion of what was previously produced was corrupted or not searchable.
The emails and information released by the prosecution show Hubbard going to political allies to seek work and clients for his companies. Hubbard says those emails were out of context and only released as a means to embarrass him.
The documents also suggest that without all of the
information from the state, Hubbard cannot be fully prepared for to try the case. The trial is expected to happen in October.
