A Sherman, Texas, attorney who alleges that 336th District Judge Lauri Blake had him removed from her courtroom in Fannin County and detained in a holding cell has sued Blake for false imprisonment.

In his original petition filed Dec. 5 in the 336th District Court, solo David Stagner alleges that on July 29, 2005, he failed to show up for a hearing in a divorce case, because he had requested a jury trial and assumed that the case had been removed from the court’s nonjury docket. Later that day, Blake summoned Stagner to her courtroom and ordered him to go to the district court’s office to pay the jury trial fee.
