Indicted House Speaker Mike Hubbard has asked a judge to dismiss ethics charges against him because prosecutors disclosed the identities of grand jury witnesses in a court filing.
Hubbard's defense team filed the latest dismissal motion yesterday. Motions for dismissal were also filed in March and in December of last year for alleged prosecutorial misconduct. Defense lawyers are arguing that prosecutors violated grand jury secrecy laws. The Republican speaker has asked the judge to dismiss all charges against him.
