    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.

  • 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 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...

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.

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,...

    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.

    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...

    Despite her national popularity among Democrats and an online petition with 1,247 signatures calling for her to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, Elizabeth Warren will not be headlining the gathering in Charlotte, N.C. Instead, the Harvard Law professor will speak ahead of former President Bill Clinton who will officially nominate President Barack Obama for a second term in office on Sept. 5 at the Time Warner Cable Arena. “Elizabeth Warren has championed the protection of the middle class throughout her life,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa in a statement. “At President Obama’s side,...

    Well, according to the Boston Globe, that's the latest rumor. The crowds at political conventions feast on partisan red meat, and they could end up with a bellyful when the Republicans and Democrats meet back to back beginning late next month. An Obama campaign official confirmed to the Globe Wednesday that US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is ­being considered as a possible keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. It would give the Massachusetts Democrat a national platform for her high-profile race against Senator Scott Brown, the same launch pad that ­Barack Obama used to vault ­into...

    RUSH: Okay, now you people know, you are well aware one of the reasons you listen is I know liberals. I know them. I know them like every square inch of my gloriously naked body.

And I know what they're gonna do and why they're gonna do it before they do it, and people marvel at this. We have an opportunity now because of the utterance of Elizabeth Warren, she's running against...

    Excerpt from the socialist-in-chief speech yesterday in Virginia: "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

    Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes has caught Elizabeth Warren in yet another lie about her false claims of Native American heritage. When Elizabeth Warren's "Aunt Bea," Bess A. Reed Veneck, died in 1999 at the age of 98, Ms. Warren was listed as the "informant" on the death certificate that identified Aunt Bea as White. Line 14 of the death certificate allowed the informant to specificy the race of the deceased. Presented with the option of selecting "American Indian," "Black," or "White," Ms. Warren chose to identify Aunt Bea's race as White. Thirteen years later, Ms. Warren was telling a different...

    Newly uncovered documents posted on a blog show that two ancestors of Massachusetts U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren were listed on government forms as “white,” despite the Democratic candidate repeatedly saying that she comes from Native American heritage. Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes posted census data on her blog this weekend that she says shows that Warren’s mother, Pauline Herring, listed herself as “white” in 1940. Barnes also posted a death certificate for Warren’s “Aunt Bea,” who was listed as “white” on the form. Elizabeth Warren’s name is listed on the death certificate. The Democratic candidate once famously cited her Aunt...
