11:44 am
answer to a three-judge panel why she shouldn't face contempt charges. however, her attorneys argued that that whole plan should be thrown out, that she shouldn't have to answer to them because the judge should recuse himself and because this office firing was restructuring and was no way in retaliation against a man who had testified against her in a grand jury proceeding. >> -- because it does look retaliatory. why not wait? >> it doesn't look retaliatory at all because as you would see at any proceeding this steps were taken to reorganize the office to make it more effective, to make it more efficacious, to streamline the process, to make it more responsive to the needs of the office, and there's no reason to await the outcome, as i argued in court. you shouldn't have to go to court to get permission in order to do that.

11:45 am
that now. >> was anyone else let go? >> i'm not going to comment on that now. >> i expect these legal arguments that were made by the attorney general's defense team will be rejected by the court on the basis of having no merit. >> reporter: john mcmahon the attorney you heard from just now, he has been appointed by the montgomery district attorney as a special prosecutor in the case. he said his role is to simply handle this contempt portion of the case. he said he anticipates the judges will make a decision very quickly, he's hopeful by the end of the day or tomorrow. he says he's hopeful he will be able to continue his part in the case and pursue charges against the attorney general. one other side note here that the special prosecutor in the case asked that three-judge panel to issue an order protecting all witnesses in this case from any type of retribution. reporting live in norristown deanna durante, nbc 10 news. >> thank you. ford is recalling nearly 400,000 fiesta fusion and

11:51 am
will bring rain thursday and into friday and wind and keep things on the cool side. so that's the main thing to watch this week for the weather. for today we're watching the temperature not go up a whole lot. highs near 60 degrees, in the 50s in the northern suburbs with those clouds and some spotty showers. seven-day forecast no showers tomorrow and warmer, up near 70 degrees, and if we don't get to 70 tuesday, we should get to 70 on wednesday. then thursday we have the clouds coming in with that nor'easter and a chance of rain coming up especially later in the day. and at night and a chance of that continuing into friday and then it's all out of here giving us a nice weekend. we'll be right back.
