PICKET: Elderly FLA couple lawyers up after Spike Lee address tweet
The Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, March 28, 2012 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 03/28/2012 7:06:38 PM PDT by kristinn

It was bound to happen. The elderly Sanford, Florida couple whose address was misidentified by a tweet from a Los Angeles man and later retweeted by filmmaker and actor Spike Lee, has hired the Morgan & Morgan law firm to represent them, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Before my initial visit to Alaine and David McClain's residence Tuesday morning, I suspected the address that Marcus D. Higgins first tweeted out to Mr. Lee and others was not the home of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman. I noticed through Google Earth that the neighborhood was not a gated community and was several miles from the Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place. Furthermore, there were no reports that massive crowds were gathering around Mr. Zimmerman's residence either.

My suspicions were confirmed after I spoke with a neighbor of the McClain's, Tim, who told me several news agencies had already passed through the area looking for Mr. Zimmerman and that an Elaine lived at the address not Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman. I was surprised, given the gravity of the potential danger to the occupant living at the Edgewater Circle address, that other news outlets had not reported the case of mistaken identity already.

This is a slam dunk case too, lee will at least have to buy their home and put out mega bucks for the emotional harm he has caused. But there should also be punitive damages too. I doubt the couple will ever return to the home, they will send out movers to get their stuff. I certainly would not spend a night in that now condemned house.

I saw that the Zimmermans who were falsely outed by Shelton Lee hired a attorney!, Matt Morgan! The son of John Morgan!
This is the son of Zerobma’s largest donors and personal friend o the Messiah.
I find that this very odd and down right evil!

Invitation to dinner at John Morgan’s home.
http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/news_politics/2011/10/heres-your-invitation-to-the-obama-fundraiser-at-john-morgans-house.html
Sounds to me like a real conflict of interest if said attorney does not have a real interest in his clients rights.

Can you say SLEASE?

Another twitter comment that comes back to haunt the user. It couldn’t happen to a better guy. Keep rambling on, Spike.

Don’t forget emotional damages.

Heck, I am emotionally damaged, by the idea of a 70+ couple being chased out of their home.

Class action, anybody?

Odinga, Holder and crew put the strong arm on them and this is a way to to shut them up.

I read earlier that he apologized via Twitter..apologized for tweeting the wrong address! didn’t apologize for tweeting Zmans address..

The minute I read that, I had a feeing the McClain family had lawyered up..so, his “apology” was only because a big lawsuit coming his way. Sorry Spike, half-as*** apology won’t save you..

Morgan & Morgan law firm. If you don’t know who they are, they are the bottom of the bottom feeders. In this case I am glad that they are representing this couple, although it is a publicity seeking venture on Morgan’s part.

Charlie Crist did a TV commercial for them after he lost the Gov’r election to Rubio. Morgan was one of his biggest donors.

It’s OK for that scum to apologize and we are expected to accept, yet, Rush Limbaugh’s apologies are ridiculed. I hate liberals and I hate Spike Lee. Someone has his address and I hope he/she posts it for the world to see.

I hate class action suites - the lawyers get millions of bucks, the plaintiffs get a fifty-cent coupon.

But, I could make an exception for this...

The real point is to bankrupt that SOB

Last I heard Lee hasn’t even tweeted that the address was incorrect.

I hope all he’s left with is 40 Acres and a Mule. (That’s the name of his production company.

Morgan and Morgan are the lawyers who Obama came to in Heathrow for a big fundraiser a while ago. They are huge ambulence chasers here in Florida. They will be all over Spike Lee....Also..Charlie Crist now works with them.
