MICHIGAN CITY – An attorney hired by Ron Meer said felony charges filed against the Michigan City mayor last week are "politically driven" and has filed a motion for a special prosecutor in the case.

Scott King, former mayor of Gary and partner in the King, Brown & Murdaugh law firm in Merrillville, said in a statement, "My preliminary review of the charges demonstrates that they are poorly drafted and, I believe, subject to a Motion to Dismiss ... I firmly believe that none of the charges can be sustained in court."
