Ex-Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott A. Ziegler’s lawyer is employing a repetitive defense to get the case dismissed, according to the Virginia Attorney General’s Office.

Theophani K. Stamos, special counsel to the Attorney General’s Office, said defense attorney Erin M. Harrigan’s Jan 5 dismissal motion repeats previously-decided claims. In a filing in Loudoun Circuit Court on Thursday, Stamos noted that Harrigan argued before Judge James E. Plowman on April 28 and June 30 that the Attorney General’s Office lacked jurisdiction in the case, and Plowman rejected the arguments.

If Jason Miyares runs for Governor, Theo Stamos would look mighty fine as Attorney General for Virginia!
