In a press release, Dallas attorney Victoria Neave announced she will replace Jason Smith as Joe Palazzolo’s attorney in his whistle blower case against the Fort Worth School district. The judge in the case approved the substitution of counsel in a court order signed earlier this month. Neave plans to reschedule the trial soon, the release said.
“After almost four years of dealing with this matter, I am anxious to clear my name and allow a jury to decide this matter,” Palazzolo said in the release. “I am standing up to the school district not only for my family and me, but for all FWISD employees.”
His former attorney Jason Smith could not be reached for comment.
