Lt. Governor http://kuer.org en Lt. Governor Won't File Civil Claim Against John Swallow http://kuer.org/post/lt-governor-wont-file-civil-claim-against-john-swallow <p>Lt. Governor Spencer Cox announced today that he will not pursue civil action against Utah Attorney General John Swallow.</p><p>Cox says he won’t pursue the case because Swallow has already resigned. He says because the outcome of resignation and civil action is the same, a vacated office, moving forward would only be a waste of time and taxpayer money.</p><p>“Short of spending $200,000 in a six month trial to end up exactly where we are today, I don’t know what else we could do except to forward it on to the other investigators,” he says.</p> Wed, 27 Nov 2013 21:48:35 +0000 Brian Grimmett 38814 at http://kuer.org Lt.
