Because of my affinity for the Court, I have been reluctant to repeat mere rumors concerning sitting Justices. However, a press account (admittedly little better than run-of-the-mill rumors these days) regarding an arson investigation involving the destruction of Justice David Medina‘s house has now been confirmed by the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office.

Particularly distressing however, is the report that:

six “persons of interest,” all of whom are Medina family members or friends, have been identified in the investigation, which is expected to be completed within 90 days … [and that] there were inconsistencies in Medina’s and his wife’s account of where he was the night of the fire.


ATL has the story as well.
