The Ax Begins To Swing At The Courthouse

Changes at the Harris County courthouse have been expected since the Democratic semi-sweep in November.

Here's one we didn't expect -- Fred King, the communications director for the county district clerk, is gone. As of last week.

"It's just personnel decisions with the new clerk," says Claire Kennedy, an assistant who's moved up to take King's job.

King was well-respected in the local media community for his willingness to help out reporters trying to plumb the intricate, murky depths of the filing system of the county's justice system.

We wish him well....
