Dr. David Bruce Allen Returns for Deposition in $551M Lawsuit, Plans Saturday Party at Blue HoleSalem-News.com
All charges against Dr. Allen were dropped in January 2012.
(ESCATAWPA, Miss. GulfLive.com) - Dr. David Bruce Allen, the former heart surgeon who was held in prison for 14 months on drug charges that were eventually dismissed, returned to Jackson County last week and testified in a deposition connected to his $551 million federal lawsuit against Jackson County and Sheriff Mike Byrd.
"I testified about two or three hours with the (county) board attorney and my attorney Michael Crosby," Allen said Monday. "Several people are talking to attorneys regarding the sheriff and improprieties of planting false evidence."
Allen is planning to host a get-together Saturday at 3 p.m. for his supporters at his property on Miss. 613 commonly known as "The Blue Hole."
Allen, who returned here Wednesday for the first time since the charges against him were dropped in January 2012, is naming the event "This Property is Protected by Angels."
"The property has been put back in working order and we're getting things ready for Saturday as kind of a community gathering," Allen said. "It's a wonderful place. A lot of people swam here when they were young. I'm giving thanks to God that I'm still alive and that I was able to save my property for my children's inheritance."
Asked how many people he expected to attend his party, he said, "we hope at least 10 or 15, but I suspect there will be a ton of people. I saved hundreds of people's lives in this community. I know some dignitaries will be there," but he declined to name any.
Allen said it will be a swimming party and barbecue, and there would be no alcohol or drugs.
"I went swimming yesterday and the Blue Hole is as full as a tick and bath tub warm," he said, said of the large lake created from the dirt pit used to build Miss. 63 north. "It's blue and clear."
Since all charges against him were dropped in January 2012, the doctor has maintained his medical marijuana clinic in Sacramento, Calif., and he has worked as a research scientist with the international Cannabinoid Research Society.
