The Clay Shaw preliminary hearing testimony of James J. Kenny
JAMES J. KENNY, after being first duly sworn by the Minute Clerk, testified as follows:
In order to expedite matters, is it possible that there can be a stipulation as to what he will testify to? I understand that Mr. Kenny is personnel director of Equitable Assurance, is that right, Mr. Kenny?
I am an agency manager.
Just stipulate it and see if the State will acquiesce.
I would like to see the record.
