Dallas County prosecutors will seek an indictment for murder against plaintiffs attorney Scott Marshall in connection with the Dec. 20, 2009, shooting death of Staci Montgomery, the ex-wife of Marshall’s former law partner, Bady Sassin. According to an e-mail from Jamille Bradfield, spokeswoman for the Dallas County district attorney’s office, prosecutors will present the case against Marshall to a grand jury on Friday.

Montgomery’s death occurred as the two former partners were engaged in a legal battle. Sassin filed Sassin Law Firm v. Marshall Law Firm in August 2009, alleging that Marshall did not hold up his end of the partnership after they agreed to start Marshall Sassin in January 2009. In his first amended petition, Sassin accuses Marshall of fraudulent inducement and breach of contract, among other things — allegations Marshall denies in his response and countersuit.
