Ready for another chapter. C’mon you two we are all waiting..
Christopher Cayce, the men’s attorney, argued that comments to the media by the Sheriff’s Office, which suggested that Kennaugh and Amadio were involved in insurance fraud or some other criminal enterprise, were such “egregious lies” that they amounted to criminal fraud.
He asked the court not to allow the Sheriff’s Office “use immunity for criminal conduct.”
Shapiro countered that Cayce was making “wonderful arguments not supported by the facts.”
The men claimed in the suit that the Sheriff’s Office didn’t seriously investigate the art theft, but instead sought to discredit Amadio because he was involved with the daughter of a man with influential ties to the department.
Shapiro said he will file a motion seeking that the men pay for the county’s attorney fees.
Cayce said, “It will be appealed.” He said he wasn’t surprised by the court’s ruling.
