Federal Judge Marcia Crone has spent nearly a year sifting through hundreds of legal documents filed as part of a civil racketeering case against roughly three dozen local, state and federal officials, as well as local media outlets and representatives, lodged by former Beaumont Independent School District administrator Jessie Haynes and contract electrician Calvin Walker. The total number of defendants in the case is dwindling, however, as just this past week two more were dismissed entirely from the litigation.
