Amy Meserve threatens me in front of people after Kailan Meserve's motion for new trial is denied.
After the Kailan Meserve hearing was over today, I was on the second floor walking out and stopped to say hi to a court bailiff. There were several people, including DA staff, Victim Witness advocates, family members and friends in support of Jane Doe 1 and 2 around as well as other people.
Amy Meserve came up to me and told me to retract "my statement." No clarification of what statement.
I told her "don't talk to me." She continued, I told her, again, not to speak to me. The court bailiff had to stand between her and me. Kailan Meserve's attorney, Mr. Russ Clanton tried to get her into a conference room as she yelled and threatened a lawsuit.
Those type of threats are easy to throw around. I don't get intimidated. Shining light on details of court cases, ensures transparency. I don't back off on covering cases involving prominent names.
This is not the first time Amy Meserve has spoken to me in public. The first time was telling me to move where I was standing outside a courtroom, which is public space, so it would be convenient for her.
Mr. Clanton's statement in court today, "In the supplemental, we have outlined our inability to proceed on certain elements we intended to" speaks for itself.
