Cogent Information received by The Monrovia Times suggests that Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe has filed a Writ of Prohibition to the Supreme Court on his incarceration order by Judge Eva Mappy-Morgan.
On Monday, Commercial Court resident Judge Mappy-Morgan ordered the incarceration of Cllr. Gongloe and others for twenty days for their alleged failure to properly advise their client, Brocius in an ongoing case before the court.
The court said the failure on the counselors’ part to manage their client, made him discuss in public and on the radio a case which is still pending before it, an act the court considers as prejudices.
It can be recalled that Commercial Court Judge, Eva Mappy-Morgan ordered the incarceration of the three prominent lawyers on Monday September 3rd. Judge Mappy-Morgan said Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe, Phillip Gongloe and Momolu Kendakai all of the Gongloe and Associate Law Firm will spend 20 days in jail.
According to the Judge, the lawyers refused to properly advise their client in the ongoing case involving Amos Brosius and the Monrovia Oil Trading Company.
Judge Mappy-Morgan said the unethical behavior of the three men to properly advise their client has brought the court and her character to public disrepute.
The Judge said the parties, adding that the counselors watched their client go about discussing the case thereby creating public sentiment, should not discuss a case pending before a court outside of courtrooms.
Brocius accused Judge Mappy-Morgan of diverting more than 2-million to her personal account. Meanwhile, Brocius is expected to appear in court Wednesday.
