New judge to hear future proceedings on Rush
Future court proceedings dealing with the investigation into allegations that Rush Limbaugh illegally hoarded prescription pain pills have been transferred to the third circuit court judge in less than two years--Judge David Crow. Circuit Judge Thomas Barkdull closed the file after he turned over portions of Limbaugh's medical records to prosecutors, whom he ruled were allowed under the search warrants used to seize them. Saying he has no jurisdiction over other parts of the case, Barkdull issued an order that said the latest issue before the court, prosecutors wanting to question Limbaugh's doctors, will have to be heard by another judge. A hearing has not been set on the issue of whether the state will be allowed to question Limbaugh's doctors. Circuit Judge Jeffrey Winikoff was originally assigned the case, but transferred it to Barkdull after the 4th District of Appeal issued a mandate that the judge who issued the search warrants (Barkdull) decide which records were relevant to the warrants.
