Oh the grandeur of public office!

“He( Lambright ) said if Yollick wants to bring props to court in the future, he could use the County Attorney’s Office as a contact to get clearance and avoid the situation from recurring.”

Woodlands attorney threatens lawsuit in dispute over his ‘golden hammer’

Updated 8:12 pm, Wednesday, September 7, 2016

 

Woodlands-based attorney Eric Yollick recently dropped his initial “golden hammer” award on Montgomery County commissioners.

But when his second attempt to dish out more dubious distinctions in Commissioners Court was met with a roadblock, Yollick threatened to strike next with a lawsuit.

In a letter drafted Tuesday to County Attorney J.D. Lambright, Yollick stated his rights to free speech were denied when a security guard prevented him from bringing a gold-painted, foam rubber hammer into Commissioners Court earlier that morning. Yollick claimed the guard was instructed by Lambright to confiscate it and that the county attorney bullied him afterward.

In Yollick’s initial letter Tuesday, he gave Lambright a 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline to instruct security to allow him to bring his “prop hammers” to future public meetings at the Alan B. Sadler Administration Building in Conroe – and confirm it in writing – or else a suit would be filed against the County Attorney’s Office.

However, Lambright responded Wednesday with his own letter, stating that if Yollick pursues the lawsuit, the County Attorney’s Office would seek sanctions against him for “unwarranted, frivolous and harassing action.”

Lambright says Yollick’s claims are “inaccurate” and his office actually took steps to return the hammer to Yollick after it was confiscated by security officers who work for a company contracted by the county. He added that neither he nor anyone from his office instructed the security officer to refuse Yollick entry into the building with the hammer.

Lambright also denied Yollick’s rights were violated either “intentionally or otherwise.”

He said if Yollick wants to bring props to court in the future, he could use the County Attorney’s Office as a contact to get clearance and avoid the situation from recurring.
