Quick, anybody know the rules of discovery in North Carolina civil suits? If wide-reaching, Lisa Mayfield’s defamation lawsuit against her stepson could be a treasure-trove of family dysfunction deep in the heart of NASCAR.
Among the interesting topics, did NASCAR pay Lisa Mayfield for her deposition, as Jeremy Mayfield claimed? NASCAR probably regrets ever dragging Ms. Mayfield into this already.
The situation reminds me of the long-running court fight between G. Gordon Liddy and John Dean, in which Liddy reveled in being sued by Dean for defamation, which allowed him to continue to press for vindication on his version of the Watergate break-in. But that suit, as well as a subsequent one filed by a former DNC secretary Liddy claimed was involved in a prostitution ring, melted away without resolution.
Thus concludes the first, and likely last, blog post linking Watergate to Jeremy Mayfield’s supposed meth use.
