    Has Elizabeth Warren Been Practicing Law Without A License?Posted on September 25, 2012 by John Hinderaker **SNIP** This section is one that frequently applies to my own law practice. I provide legal services in jurisdictions where I am not admitted to practice all the time, under the pro hac vice rules of the local state and federal courts. Under those rules, I can apply to practice in the courts of other states, including Massachusetts, as long as I am licensed and in good standing in Minnesota, and agree to abide by the ethics rules of those states. But you can’t...
  • Brown: Steel case shows Warren sides with big business (MA Senate Race)

    Boston Herald ^ | 9/25/12 | Chris Cassidy
    Republican Sen. Scott Brown lobbed hypocrisy charges against Democrat Elizabeth Warren today for her work on behalf of a steel conglomerate in 1995, saying it contradicts her claims of being a champion of the middle class. “I think it’s hypocritical to say you’re out there fighting for the middle class and fighting for the union workers and the little guys,” Brown said at a campaign appearance at South Station today. Brown said national AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka — in town yesterday to talk up Warren’s union credentials at a labor rally — will be hard-pressed to defend Warren now. “He’s...

    Elizabeth Warren Defrauded Asbestos Victims While Practicing Law Without a LicensePosted by Daniel Greenfield Sep 24th, 2012 Laws? They’re for little people. Laws don’t apply to Harvard professors. They apply to Harvard janitors. Compassion? Liberals are great at that. Just ask Elizabeth Warren who was paid nearly a quarter of a million dollars to help Travelers Insurance deny asbestos compensation to asbestos victims… and she did it while practicing law without a license. And wearing a fake Cherokee headdress. After this latest story, I have a feeling that Elizabeth Warren wishes she had run for the Senate in Oklahoma, instead...
  • Warren faces question over law license in latest accusation to roil Senate race

    Warren faces question over law license in latest accusation to roil Senate racePublished September 25, 2012 FoxNews.com **SNIP** Warren had to have had an active state bar license when applying to try cases before the high court, according to the Supreme Court. So the more questionable issue appears to be whether Warren practiced state-level law from her Harvard office without a Massachusetts license. Warren was paid $212,000 for three years of work in a case that involved thousands of asbestos victims and was “notable because Warren, who has gained fame for defending consumers against big business, was in this case...

    I didn't think that exchange over her heritage at the debate last week had drawn any blood, but evidently it did. There's no way her team would waste resources in addressing this subject unless they didn't like the feedback they got afterward. And if that doesn't convince you, check out the second clip below: Brown is now running attack ads on it. I wonder what sort of nerve this is hitting in the polling for it to suddenly be injected back into the race. Is it a pure "trust" thing or are her academic credentials more important to her candidacy...

    Elizabeth Warren on defensive again over heritage claimBy Hillary Chabot Monday, September 24, 2012 - Updated 2 hours ago **SNIP** Warren, during the Jim & Margery show on 96.9 WTKK this morning, addressed the issue when a caller asked her if she felt bad for checking the box in the law school directory and potentially taking an opportunity from a real Native American. “I know what I know from my family. I didn’t check a box to go to college. I didn’t check a box to go to law school. The only box I checked was in a directory to...

    Maintained private law practice at Cambridge office for over a decade but not licensed in Massachusetts 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: (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...

    Free Beacon ^ | 9/21/12 | staff
    In her Thursday debate against Sen. Scott Brown (R., Mass.), Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said she did not assist the nation’s largest insurer deny settlements in asbestos-related cases. “It’s just not true,” Warren said of the charge. “The Boston Globe has looked at this; they’ve written about it.” Warren wrote a U.S. Supreme Court brief for Travelers Insurance in 2009; in the case–Travelers v. Bailey–the company sought to achieve permanent immunity against any new asbestos-related claims through the establishment of a $500 million trust. After Warren left the case, and as an extension of the legal work she did,...
  • Scott Brown to Warren: How can we trust your character when you lied about being Native American?

    Via BuzzFeed, five minutes of fun at the start of tonight’s debate. I agree with William Jacobson: In some ways, this is a tough subject for Brown to broach. To make the case effectively he's got to get into details about the debunked genealogy, her dubious explanations for identifying as Native American, and her insistence on doing so professionally at Harvard even though she didn’t meet the professional guidelines for it. That's hard or impossible to do in a 60-second opening statement; as it is, his argument that she's lying amounts to "c'mon, she obviously doesn't look Native American," which...

    Following the Democratic Convention, intial polling suggested that Elizabeth Warren had taken the lead over Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race. More recently, a poll by WBUR/MassINC put Warren ahead by 5 points, 47-42. But now comes a poll by UMass Lowell/Boston Herald, taken during basically the same period as the WBUR poll, that puts Brown ahead by 50-44. The poll also shows, however, that Brown’s lead (assuming the reliability of the poll) is not as solid as its size suggests. Nearly one in three Brown backers say they could change their mind before Election Day, compared to just...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 9/19/2012 | William A. Jacobson
    There have been several polls released recently, showing everything from a virtual dead heat to Elizabeth Warren ahead by low single digits. This was a contrast to pre-DNC polls, which showed Brown ahead by low single digits. Clearly Warren received a convention bounce, almost entirely from increased support from Democrats. Warren supporters in the left-blogosphere have all but declared victory. The question, however, was whether Warren’s convention bounce would last. A U.Mass-Lowell/Boston Herald poll released tonight indicates that perhaps Warren’s lead is not so clear, or that her bounce has faded. Brown is up 50-44 among registered voters and 49-45...
  • SUFFOLK UNIVERSITY POLL SHOWS WARREN OVERTAKING BROWN FOR U.S. SENATE

    Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren (48 percent) has overtaken incumbent Republican Scott Brown (44 percent), in a Senate squeaker that still falls within the margin of error, according to a Suffolk University/7NEWS (WHDH-Boston) poll of likely general election voters in Massachusetts. Eight percent of those polled were undecided or chose someone else. These results contrast with a Suffolk University/7NEWS poll conducted in May, when Brown led Warren 48 percent to 47 percent, with 5 percent either undecided or choosing someone else. “Fresh off a new TV ad buy and a prime time convention speech, Elizabeth Warren has improved her popularity and...

Staffers from the state Republican party tried to hand her the cake at a press conference, the Boston Herald reports: Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren dodged an effort by state Republicans today to tie her to the Occupy movement, when she left a campaign event by a side door avoiding two Republican operatives standing on a Dorchester sidewalk with a melting sheet cake in their hands. “We just wanted...

    Democrat Elizabeth Warren has a 6-point lead over Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., in one of the marquee Senate races of the 2012 cycle, according to a new poll released Sunday. Warren's lead is not considered statistically significant because the poll, conducted by Western New England University in Springfield, Mass., has a relatively high margin of error.

    Only In Massachusetts: Elizabeth Warren Supporters Debate Her Hair, Glasses, And ImageBy Todd Domke September 15, 2012 Please check your U.S. history textbook. Has there ever been such impassioned debate among campaign activists over their candidate’s image? If you haven’t noticed, commentaries and reader comments at WBUR and in other media have generated a great controversy: Some supporters of Elizabeth Warren think she needs a makeover and others believe she’s wonderful as she is. Dan Payne, my Democratic counterpart, brought this simmering disagreement to a boil when he wrote a commentary, “What’s Wrong With The Warren Campaign?” Dan offered a...

    Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — amid growing unrest from party activists and leaders — is facing pressure to make a major shift in her television advertising with a new series of commercials that seek to soften her image, while focusing more directly on her GOP rival, Senator Scott Brown. According to top Democratic leaders in Massachusetts, Warren campaign advisers are considering a new strategy that will be aimed at toning down what those leaders call the preachy tone that has dominated her ads until now. Instead, some of the spots would rely more on the voices of voters from...

    CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated how CAPE PAC sites are identified. Candidate sites are labeled as CAPE PAC sites in fine print at the top and bottom of each site. Noam Neusner, a former White House speechwriter for President George W. Bush, thought he had given $250 to GOP Senate candidate Josh Mandel. He hadn’t. Instead, Neusner was one of nearly 3,000 donors who stumbled onto a network of look-alike campaign websites that have netted more than $570,000 this year in what some are calling a sophisticated political phishing scheme. (UPDATE: Mystery PAC Look-Alike Websites Dissappear!) The...

    In a 1994 interview, then-Harvard Law School dean Robert Clark said his institution was actively applying an affirmative action policy to hiring female faculty, The Daily Caller has learned. The famed law school first offered Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren a professorship in 1992 and granted her tenure in 1995. And charges leveled in a 1990 academic law journal raised serious questions about her qualifications to teach at Harvard at all. In 1991, Rutgers Professor Phillip Schuchman reviewed Warren’s co-authored 1989 book “As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America” in the pages of the Rutgers...
