Today, former chief of staff and present State Senator Mike McLachlan is scheduled to be deposed in the Danbury 11 case.
There are two critical reasons why McLachlan is being deposed?
1. Because, as chief of staff, McLachlan has knowledge of the city's affairs which could be of importance to the case.
2. During the time of the raid at Kennedy Park (Sept 19th), Mayor Boughton set to travel to Brazil to attend a conference on immigration and fraud (he landed in Brazil on Sept 20th). McLachlan was running the show in Boughton's absence.
McLachlan's deposition (as well as the mayor's) will be videotaped and a reporter from the media will be present. Since this case has attracted state interest, it shouldn't be long until we learn details of the comments made by the mayor's second in command.
UPDATE: Although the plaintiffs and city were in agreement, the attorneys for the fed government denied a request from the media to attend today's deposition. It will take a little while longer until we have information on what was said today.
