We were going to let Harold Pryor have a little breathing room after Tuesday’s primary victory, but reached out to him earlier today following loads of queries concerning the two specific issues below, which have also been topics in the comments section.
1. Will Ilona Holmes have a formal role in a Pryor SAO, assuming victory in November?
Heres what Harold had to say:
“It’s too early for me to make that determination. We just won a primary and have a general election coming up.
I will say she’s a great attorney and was a great judge, and why wouldn’t anyone want to consider Judge Holmes in any capacity?
I can also say I believe this rumor got going because I have asked former Bar president Eugene Pettis and Judge Holmes to head my transition team, if we’re fortunate enough to win in November.”
2. Is Mike Satz staying on the Parkland case?
“I’m still reviewing the matter, but it’s important to note the case is going on as scheduled, and I certainly have no plans to disrupt it.
While still being reviewed, it’s important to note the families I’ve spoken to during the primary election phase have strongly communicated to me that they want Mike Satz working on the case.“
