Despite being accused by a former procurement officer of trying to improperly influence the D.C. Lottery contract, D.C. Council member Jack Evans soon will conduct oversight hearings on the approval process and a controversial online gambling proposal - while also being compelled to answer questions under oath in a civil lawsuit being defended by the city.
A federal judge has compelled Mayor Vincent C. Gray and two council members to testify about a controversial lottery contract awarded in 2008.
Judge Robinson said the depositions of Mr. Gray, Mr. Evans and Mr. Graham must be limited to discussions with Mr. Gandhi regarding the lottery contract, and each cannot exceed 3½ hours.
