According to Langston, a man claiming ..., 1 Sept 1991 [cached]
According to Langston, a man claiming to be a city attorney called Lynn Cooksey that night and demanded that she pull the program immediately or he would pull the plug on ACTV entirely. Cooksey, in a later interview, denied both accounts, stating that a personal friend who also happened to be an expert in first amendment rights had called her and advised her that the scenes being cablecast by Spurlock were obscene, and that the show should be pulled off the air.
Cooksey refused to reveal the name of this mysterious expert to Polemicist.
In the midst of the ruckus, Travis County Attorney General Ken Oden convened a Grand Jury to hear testimony from Camille Barnett, Iris Jones and Lynn Cooksey on the issue.
Therefore, the idea that the City is liable for programming must have come from Grand Jury testimony; only three people were called to testify: City Attorney Iris Jones, City Manager Camile Barnett, and ACTV General Manager Lynn Cooksey.
Eventually, the ACTV Board of Directors voted to rescind ACTV manager Lynn Cooksey's order, reinstating Spurlock to full privileges as an access producer.
