Cleveland Municipal Clerk of Court Earle B. Turner Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Kathleen Ann Keough From the Metro Desk of the DeterminerWeekly.Com and the Kathy Wray Coleman Online News Blog and Media Network Cleveland Municipal Clerk of Court Earle B. Turner has agreed, with conditions, to change an erroneous case docket date that falsely and fraudulently denotes that a document filed on May 22, 2009 was filed on May 26, 2009 regarding a criminal matter before Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Kathleen Ann Keough.

The date is consequential because it is the anniversary of "Junteenth," an annual recognition of the day in 1865 in which slaves on a plantation in Texas were told that they were free in accordance with a proclamation from then U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, though most other slaves had been freed two years earlier in 1863 when Lincoln signed
