Lawyer sues for defamation in corruption case

  Law Center  -   POSTED: 2007/06/27 15:10

An El Paso lawyer has filed a defamation suit against a former county employee who has pleaded guilty in an ongoing federal corruption scandal. Martie Jobe claims in a suit filed Monday that she was defamed in an 18-page court record detailing fellow El Paso attorney Travis Ketner's admitted crimes. According to Ketner's admission he and several others, including unnamed local lawyers and county officials, worked together to secure votes for bribes or in one case, legal defense services.

Though Jobe is not identified in the court records in the Ketner case, she said she was falsely described in the document and has been identified by name by several El Paso-area media outlets.

She has alleged defamation and civil conspiracy, charging that Ketner worked with federal prosecutors and investigators to concoct false allegations against her and others. Jobe demanded a jury trial and has not specified how much money she is seeking.

Jobe's lawyer, Leon Schydlower, was in court Tuesday and could not immediately be reached for comment.

Ketner's San Antonio lawyer, Joel Perez, has said he did not anticipate representing Ketner in the civil suit. Telephone numbers listed for Ketner have been disconnected.
