On Monday( February 22), the DPP informed the court that he would examine the evidence in the matter and lawyers for Dr. Drew where asked to provide disclosure of their evidence in the matter.
Thursday, Mr. Graham explained his decision, refuted claims of political alignment on social media, and offered details about recent decisions he made on two matters that were in the public domain.
