    Lawyer Won’t Say Who Connected Her To Whitman HousekeeperOctober 5, 2010 2:23 PM LOS ANGELES (AP) – Attorney Gloria Allred refused again to disclose how she came to represent an illegal immigrant housekeeper Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman employed for nine years. At a news conference Tuesday, her third in a week, Allred said the former maid, Nicky Diaz Santillan, was referred to her by a fellow attorney. But she added that it’s her law firm’s policy not to disclose who made the referral. She also declined to say whether the attorney had any connection to Whitman’s opponent, Democratic state...

    Hundreds of Ponzi king Bernard Madoff's victims today challenged the latest bill from his bankruptcy trustee, which seeks more than $34 million for 120 days of work. The Aug. 20 bill, for services rendered between Feb. 1 and May 31, works out to more than $5,000 a day for court-appointed trustee Irving Picard and more than $283,000 a day for his firm, Baker & Hostetler, court papers say. "On an annualized basis, this would be $104,900,950," according to the objection filed by Diane and Roger Peskin, Maureen Ebel and "several hundred" other unnamed Madoff investors. [Snip] Picard spokesman Kevin...

    A Las Vegas man has filed a $38 quadrillion complaint against an Alpine attorney. John Theodore Anderson, also known as John-Theodore:Anderson in his filings, claims attorneys Douglas Shumway, Benjamin Schramm and Michael Van fraudulently served him with a lawsuit, according to court records. The dispute stems from a complaint Anderson originally filed against clients of the law firm of Shumway, Van and Hansen for $918 billion. Shumway said his client, Private Capital Group et al, came into possession of mining property in Southern Utah recently after the original owner of the mine defaulted on a loan. The capital group then...

    In an unprecedented move to address the legal issues of Hispanics in the United States, the 400,000-member American Bar Association -- under the new leadership of Stephen N. Zack, a Cuban-American lawyer from Miami -- will announce Monday the creation of the Commission on Hispanic Legal Rights. The ABA commission, to be headed by Miami lawyer César L. Alvarez, also a Cuban-American, will hold public hearings in major U.S. cities with Hispanic populations to study whether the legal system is addressing the needs of the country's largest and fastest-growing minority.

    Now listen up, white people! You CANNOT BE A VICTIM OF RACISM, because according to Paris Lewis, the head of the Black Panther racists, black people cannot be racist. I’m not making this up…see the video. His assertion is that blacks cannot be racist because their ancestors suffered as slaves. So, by his assertion, if you are victimized by the Black Panther racists, you are not a victim. This guy Paris is a college educated lawyer. Does he know how to look up something in a dictionary? Racism has nothing to do with past experience, but rather a view of...

    You're flipping channels late at night and come across what can only be a preview for the latest Public Access show. Turns out it's an ad for an overeager lawyer hoping to separate themselves from the (wolf) pack. A friendly tip from the Urlesque staff: don't try so hard. We've compiled the Web's worst lawyer commercials to show you that just because you went to law school (presumably via e-mail), doesn't mean you can't call someone an "illiterate boob" on television.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 1, 2010 | Dionne Searcey
    Plaintiffs' attorneys are scrambling to avoid being frozen out by a $20 billion fund aimed at compensating Gulf of Mexico oil-spill victims outside of court. The attorneys had hoped litigation against BP PLC and other companies involved in the spill would net them tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars in fees. Many quickly turned their attention to the spill in April from what was then the mass tort of the moment, suits against Toyota Motor Corp. tied to unintended acceleration. But the legal landscape shifted dramatically earlier this month when BP agreed to create a $20 billion...

    Despite a resolution by Congress authorizing war against those responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama’s nominee to be the number two official at the Justice Department, James Cole, wrote an op-ed in 2002 likening the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to the domestic crimes of murder, rape and child abuse, while arguing that the attackers ought to be treated like domestic criminals. “But the attorney general is not a member of the military fighting a war--he is a prosecutor fighting crime,” Cole wrote in a Sept. 9, 2002 article in Legal Times that critiqued...

    A white supremacist lawyer was stabbed and beaten to death by a black neighbour who had done yard work for him at his home in Pearl, Mississippi. A preliminary post mortem showed Richard Barrett, 67, was stabbed multiple times in the neck and bashed in the head, Sheriff Ronnie Pennington said. He had burns over 35 per cent of his body, though investigators believe he was killed on Wednesday night and his house set on fire Thursday to cover up his death. Pennington did not disclose a motive but said neighbour Vincent McGee, 22, was charged with murder on Thursday...

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

    EDINBURG — As wrongful death cases go, the one that almost predictably followed the fatal fall of construction worker Antonio Rivas in McAllen in May 2002 was unremarkable in every respect but one. A lawsuit against the company that employed Rivas was quickly filed by lawyers from the Watts Law Firm on behalf of Rivas' widow, Maria Zuniga, and his aging mother, Cayetana Rivas, who lived across the Rio Grande in a small border village. In August 2003, the case was settled for $1.8 million, but that did not end the matter. Now pending in Hidalgo County is another suit,...

    The attorney for one of six South Hadley High School students accused of bullying Phoebe Prince in the months leading up to her suicide is asking for highly personal information about her, a move decried by a former prosecutor and victims advocates as “unconscionable.” In a six-page motion filed in Northampton Superior Court, Terrence M. Dunphy, the lawyer for Austin Renaud, asks for the names of any physicians, psychologists or rape counselors Prince saw; any medical and psychological records viewed by the prosecutor; details of any prior allegations of rape or abuse by Prince; and a statement as to whether...

    Fr. Thomas Brundage. Anchorage, Alaska, Mar 30, 2010 / 04:43 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Reports in the New York Times and other media about a Wisconsin priest who sexually abused deaf children have been “sloppy and inaccurate,” the then-judicial vicar of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has said. Correcting the public record, he said the claim Pope Benedict XVI was involved in the case is “a huge leap of logic.”Fr. Thomas Brundage, JLC, former judicial vicar of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, wrote in Anchorage, Alaska’s Catholic Anchor about the case of Fr. Lawrence Murphy, a principal of St. John’s School for...

    Solomon B. Watson IV was the top legal officer of the New York Times back in 2005 and 2006 when, notoriously, it published two stories compromising top-secret counterterrorism programs. I wrote about what the Times had done at the time in "Exposure," as Gabriel Schoenfeld did in "Has the New York Times violated the Espionage Act?" Indeed, Schoenfeld's forthcoming book Necessary Secrets was inspired by the recurring issues raised by the Times's -- oh, let's say it --- violations of the Espionage Act. The Obama administration has now nominated Watson to be general counsel of the Army. This has raised...
