On Wednesday, the case between NASCAR vs. Jeremy Mayfield took another turn when the trial date was announced.
It’s going to be a long year.
September 13, 2010 is when the trial date is set for, and there’s always a possibility of postponement. With that, we can expect more of the dirt flying back and forth between the two parties over the next year, just like we’ve seen in the past 3 months.
You can’t help but wonder why it’s going to be a whole year before this trial starts, when a Kansas man who alledgedly shot and killed somebody got his trial within just a few months. Just another example of our messed up, complicated court system.
To add on, Mayfield’s estranged stepmother has filed a civil suit against Mayfield, suing him $20,000 for “damages” inflicted on her after Mayfield’s comments about her. Mayfield didn’t mince words about her after she claimed she witnessed her stepson use methamphetamine at least 30 times between 1998-2005. Or, in other words, during his prime.
I wonder if she remembers that she got herself into this mess by getting involved in the “Drug Wars” in the first place? Apparently not.
So, another day, and another pile of dirt put on an overflowing legal sundae topped with lies, deceit, and conspiracy theories. Oh, what an eventful year it will be.
