The office of the Tyler judge assigned to Judge Rick Davis's court of inquiry request says a hearing date could be set as early as next week. District Court Judge Cynthia Stevens Kent has been assigned the case.
In documents filed last week, Davis accused Assistant District Attorney Shane Phelps of obstructing justice, oppressing a grand jury and abusing his power as a grand jury met investigate District Attorney Bill Turner.
Phelps has denied the claims.
