Today at 9:00 AM Edgardo Reynoso, Manager for the Hoa Van Tran Campaign faceD Commissioner Jane Myers regarding the request for a restraining order by a former staffer for campaign.
Reynoso has publicly stated that the alleged incident did not involve him as he was in the campaign office on the phone at the time. The car that the former staffer alleges Reynoso was driving happens to match the make and model of the Champagne Lexus RX 300 that Phu Do Nguyen, Hoa Van Tran’s boss drives. Nguyen has claimed before the Democratic Party Central Committee that his car was in the shop at the time.
Convenient alibis all around.
Commissioner Myers determined there was ample reason to continue the TRO and extended it to June 23 to allow the plaintiff more time to secure the services of an attorney. Commissioner Myers extended longer than Edgardo wanted, because his attorney was going on vacation. Edgardo’s attorney was pushing for a date before her vacation.
Jubal from Red County/OC Blog was there and has a more detailed report HERE. Edgardo, his attorney from Phu Do Nguyen’s firm, Hoa Van Tran, KimChi Nguyen on the Reynoso side. Misha Houser, the plaintiff’s family, and another friend on her side.
No other decision today. Both Misha and the plaintiff were served as defendants in defamation suit from Reynoso.
