In which I become a bit player in a Metro lawsuit

So I got an email on Friday from Chron reporter Mike Snyder, asking me if I had done an interview with former Metro Chair David Wolff. Apparently, there were some new documents filed in the lawsuit against Metro by its former chief counsel Pauline Higgins that referenced some comments Wolff made about Higgins in that interview. Except that the documents referred to an interview Wolff gave to “a Houston Chronicle reporter, Charles Cuff, for the purpose of discrediting and spreading false information about Higgins.” Snyder, knowing that there was no such person but assuming they meant me, asked me about it. I confirmed his assumption and sent him the relevant links. What was amusing to me is that if you found that latter page, as I presume the attorney working on Higgins’ case must have, you might have noticed that it contained my (correctly spelled) name three times, and also included a note that “The reader is responsible for this content, which is not edited by the Chronicle.” Doesn’t sound like something done by a reporter to me, but what do I know? Anyway, it’s not a big deal, but I got a chuckle out of it.

Finally, I’ll have some Metro-related news to bring you next week, and no it has nothing to do with this. […]
