WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Hempstead lawyer who represents a man charged in the Twin Peaks massacre case will file a motion for speedy trial Friday in 19th District Court.

Paul Looney, who represents former Cossack motorcycle club member Phillip White of Eddy, said he’ll request the earliest trial date possible when Judge Ralph Strother rules on the motion tomorrow.

“We anticipate asking for the earliest trial date possible – perhaps as early as July,” Looney said.

The third anniversary of the gunfight outside the Waco restaurant that left nine dead and more than 20 injured is just 20 days away.

Of the more than 155 bikers indicted in connection to the event, only one has been tried and his day in court ended in a mistrial.

Many of the cases already have been dismissed but there are about 130 people who were arrested (123 indicted and seven unindicted) remain open, Looney said.

White was severely injured during the melee with a gunshot wound to his cheek and was transported to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center in critical condition and later was flown to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple, Looney said.

He was arrested in December 2015 at a dice table inside a casino in Bossier City, La., after he was named in a sealed indictment in connection with the shootout.
