JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- State Attorney Angela Corey is filing a counterclaim against a former IT worker in her office.

Ben Kruidbos accused Corey's office of withholding evidence from George Zimmerman's attorneys last year.

Krudibos even testified for Zimmerman's defense team.

Kruidbos filed a lawsuit and said he was fired in retaliation for releasing that evidence during the case.

Now Corey is firing back.

In a counterclaim we just obtained, Corey said Kruidbos was fired for violating policy by wrongfully deleting files and for divulging information during an ongoing case.

Corey's counter lawsuit demands attorney's fees be paid by Kruidbos.

I do apologize i did vote for her. 99 percent of lawyers give the rest a bad name. Can we recall her?

If you watch ANY coverage from ANYWHERE in the US, the consent of legal experts, whether prosecution or defense attorneys; is that Cory is a completly incompetent and petty(quite obvious here) FOOL and they have no idea why or how she stays in office. Take Mr. Ben here, he was asked to tell the truth and nothing but, and Cory fired him for that. So she essentially fired a governement employee of the state for its legal department for telling the truth and not perpetuating an obvious lie that he couldnt possibly morally maintain. Well not just morally but ethially either. I really do agree with nativejax here, we DO need to start an action to get her OUT OF OUR CITY ASAP. She makes us ALL look like a bunch of fools... not to mention she is obviously incapable of doing her job. She cant get a charge right to save her own butt. She sucks, bottom line...

Corey is more crooked than the people whom she prosecutes.
