Contempt of Court Motion Withdrawn

By  | 

Lisa Holland's attorney has withdrawn a contempt of court motion filed against Ingham County's Chief Medical Examiner Dean Sienko and Sparrow's Medical Director of Forensic Pathology Joyce DeJong.

At Tim and Lisa Holland's preliminary hearing Wednesday, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina demanded the pair come to court Thursday. Aquilina was concerned the two crossed the line when talking about Ricky Holland's autopsy at a news conference Tuesday.

Sienko and DeJong appeared in court with their lawyers Thursday. Their lawyers defended their comments at the news conference saying the court order to not comment on the case did not apply to them and even if it had the two doctors did not disobey the court.

A new court order was issued Thursday, it forbids Sienko and DeJong from publicly discussing details of the Ricky Holland case.
