Attorneys Drop Multi-Million Dollar 'Intent to Sue'

A high profile lawsuit against Angelina County will not go forward, at least for now.

Attorneys for Robert Coney have withdrawn a 'notice of intent' to sue Angelina County.  A member of Coney's legal team says the $25-million lawsuit doesn't cover everyone responsible for the elderly man's wrongful imprisonment.

Coney spent time in prison for robbing a Lufkin grocery story more than 40 years ago.  That conviction was overturned a decade later because Coney did not commit the crime.  He remained in prison because his paperwork was reportedly misfiled.
