Lawyer in Razorback E-Mail Lawsuit Found in Contempt

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - A circuit judge held in contempt of court a lawyer who filed a lawsuit against University of Arkansas officials over an e-mail critical of ex-quarterback Mitch Mustain.

Yesterday, Washington County Circuit Court Judge Mark Lindsay found Fort Smith attorney Eddie Christian, Jr. in contempt for ignorning an order that he stop the discovery process in the lawsuit.  Christian represents John David Terry in the lawsuit, which has been dismissed twice.

The judge says Christian subpoened information after the judge ordered him to stop, then turned over the evidence to a newspaper, Mustain's mother, Beck Campbell, and others.

Christian says he'll appeal the contempt charge.

Terry claimed that public money was misused because university chancellor John A. White had Arkansas football coach Houston Nutt investigate the e-mail.  Terry sued White and university system president B. Alan Sugg, alleging that White should not have had Nutt investigate the e-mail because it was sent to Mustain by Razorbacks booster Teresa Prewett, a friend of Nutt's family.
