More Hearings to be Scheduled for Shredding Case

Circuit Judge John Belz Thursday told lawyers on both sides in the case of the final dispostion of Springfield Police Internal Affairs files, which have been the center of a number of lawsuits against the city, to keep the case moving forward Belz wants attorneys for both Calvin Christian III and the city to agree a schedule for November.

Appearing live on the Ray Lytle Show on Newsradio WTAX Thursday, Christian says he feels today’s ruling from Belz that he has not yet decided whether Christian needs to turn over phone records asked for by the city is a “win.”  The city is asking the court to force Christian to turn over his records; Christian says he is a journalist and is allowed to protect his sources.
