INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. submitted his response to a request for a restraining order by his ex-aide Melanie McDade on Jan. 10.
Butts’ attorney Mira Hashmall filed the document refuting all claims made by McDade.
The mayor threatened to sue this blog for publishing he was served court documents on Dec. 20 after the regular city council meeting, and also forced KBLA radio host Don Amiche to publicly apologize for remarks made on his show by former Inglewood mayoral candidate Fredrisha Dixon that he was served the documents via substitute service.
The judge granted substitute service after nearly a dozen attempts were made to serve Butts. The court minute order described him as “evading” service.
Butts’ filed legal document acknowledges he was in fact served and is due in court tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. on the matter.
