On June 13, 2018, Jackson Walker litigator Bob Latham was featured in MMA Weekly and Yahoo! Sports discussing the charges against Conor McGregor and his predictions about the hearing that took place on the following day.
“I think the main thing coming out of it will be we and he will know the full scope of charges and whether there have been grand jury indictments or where the process stands in regards to the felony,” Bob said regarding the June 14 court appearance. “But I don’t think you’re going to have any resolution, but you’ll have more information for both parties and pundits and everyone alike to assess where this is heading.”
Bob correctly predicted that not much would happen – the hearing lasted about a minute.
