    Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge. In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt,...

    I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn't know why until I read this. This is 100% legit. I check it out at Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict. (Talk about irony.) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn. Big surprise.

  • How did Elizabeth Warren's Law License go from not eligible to inactive in Texas ??

    “Warren’s Texas Bar information indicates she is not eligible to be licensed in Texas.”.... Hmmm. I have been meticulous in the facts I have reported about Warren. It is true that Warren now is shown as “inactive” and has been inactive since 1992, ...... But I did take a screen shot prior to my first post, I just didn’t include it in the post. Here is the screen shot taken on September 21 showing that Warren was listed as “Not Eligible To Practice In Texas”:....

    Legal Insurrection ^ | September 27, 2012 | William A. Jacobson
    Soon after my original post, Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem, Mark Thompson at The League of Ordinary Gentlemen wrote a post taking an opposite view, No, Elizabeth Warren Did Not Engage in the Unauthorized Practice of Law. That post by Thompson was cited far and wide, including at Memeorandum as well as at friendly conservative blogs which wanted to present the case for Warren to provide balance.In light of my post this morning that Warren represented a Massachusetts client in Massachusetts on an issue related to Massachusetts law, Thompson has concluded in a new post today:

    The debate last Thursday night between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren covered ground mostly known to voters. But there was one subject most people watching probably did not know about, Elizabeth Warren’s private legal representation of The Travelers Insurance Company in an asbestos-related case. Brown brought the point up late in the debate, and hammered it: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Warren attempted to deny her role, and referred to a Boston Globe article, but the Globe article supports Brown’s account. The Globe article indicated the representation was for a period of three years and Warren was paid $212,000....

    An illegal immigrant applying for a law license in California should be allowed to receive it, the State Bar of California argues in a filing to the state Supreme Court. Sergio Garcia, 35, of Chico, Calif., has met the rules for admission, including passing the bar exam and the moral character review, and his lack of legal status in the United States should not automatically disqualify him, the Committee of Bar Examiners said Monday. “ … Mr. Garcia’s status in the United States, should not, ipso facto, be grounds for excluding him from law licensure. He has met all of...
  • BOTH OBAMAS SURRENDERED law licenses in '93 & '08

    This can be easily veriified at Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It's the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell. 1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application. A "Voluntary Surrender" is not something where you decide "Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?" and forget to renew your license. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something...
  • WATBACK MACHINE: Michelle Obama Loses Law License

    Did you know that our First Lady Michelle Obama lost her law license back in 1993? Oh sure I knew that, “NOT.” Sure, I saw this on the front page of the New York Times during the elections of 2008, “NOT.” I've listed below from the State of Illinois’s website of the court action against Michelle forcing her to give up her license. It’s understood that in the box attacked below under Malpractice Insurance – “No malpractice report required as attorney is under court order inactive status.” In other words Michelle was under court order to give up her license...
  • Bill O'Reilly Wrong on Michell's Law License: Voluntarily Inactive but Under a Disciplinary Rule

    Maggie's Notebook ^ | April 13, 2011 | Maggie's Notebook
    Bill O'Reilly tried to separate "fact from myth," and put "internet propaganda" to rest. Most of the dialog was about Obama and his legitimacy for natural-born status, but at the end he states Michelle Obama's law license is inactive - which is true, but is not nearly the whole story. Her license is inactive, and it was voluntary, but her choices were not choices you or I might want to face. It appears that she chose to go inactive because she was facing some disciplinary action. We know this because we have a screen shot of the disciplinary record under...

UPDATED: Mystery solved! Reason Obama will not release birth certificate is because his name is legally written “Barry Soetoro” on it Here’s an interesting Ground Report from Hawaii that contains an ingenious theory about Hawaiian Governor Neil Abercrombie’s bizarre backtrack on releasing Obama’s birth certificate. Remember, Abercrombie promised that once he was elected Governor he would prove Obama’s birth certificate existed because he would march down to the Hall...

    I saw a note slide across the #TCOT feed on Twitter last night that mentioned Michelle Obama had no law license. This struck me as odd, since (a) she went to school to be a lawyer, and (b) she just recently held a position with the University of Chicago Hospitals as legal counsel — and that’s a pretty hard job to qualify for without a law license. But being a licensed professional myself, i knew that every state not only requires licensure, they make it possible to check online the status of any licensed professional. So I did, and here’s...

    This document alone raises a big question. It is his registration in the State of Illinois for his license to practice Law. The document has a space to list any other names that have been used. Even though he has used other names, this shows, “None”. The other names he has used, that we currently know are: Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham.

    The Collins Report ^ | May 8, 2010 | Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer
    Running down definitive evidence on the real story of law licenses for the Obamas is an exercise in futility and an example of the usefulness of Wite-Out. According to the current information page for the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC), Michelle Obama was admitted to practice law in Illinois on December 30, 1899. This is NOT a misprint, that’s what it really says. Perhaps our First Lady had to be reincarnated to take her pricey job in a Chicago health care system. Curiously that position has not been filled since her departure. Michelle Obama’s “Lawyer Search” form reveals no...
