After being hit with a lawsuit by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Rich Jefferies has now been hit with another lawsuit from the attorney general of Texas.
The latest is a lawsuit claiming that Rich Jeffords attorney, Richard Jewells, is an accessory to a felony for not filing his own traffic ticket.
The suit also alleges that Jewells attorney, Dan Gaffney, violated the Texas Vehicle Code by “using the alias of a motor vehicle mechanic” when filing his traffic ticket suit.
Jewells attorney says Rich’s lawyer, Gaffneys attorneys “failed to provide sufficient information” in the lawsuit, and that “the lawsuit is baseless and without merit.”
Rich has been working on his case with his lawyer, Rich Jewell, since September 2017.
Jewell filed the suit against the state on behalf of himself and his brother, who was hit by a drunk driver on June 5, 2017.
The lawsuit claims that the drunk driver struck Rich in the left rear tire, causing his leg to be amputated.
The suit also claims that Rich and his family were forced to relocate to Houston because of the injuries.
The lawsuit claims the lawsuit was filed by a group of Texas law enforcement agencies, including the Texas Rangers and the TxDOT.
Rich Jefferies attorney, Rich GaffNEY, said in a statement that the lawsuit is “simply a false claim and baseless.”
Jewell, who has since filed for a temporary restraining order against the lawsuit against him, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
