Who is the dumbest lawyer in America? This one will give you a laugh. You might be able to guess. You’ll have fun not only trying to guess but once you find out, you will be amused.
Who is the dumbest lawyer in America?
It is far left wing, Botoxed nut job fame whore Gloria Allred.
Everyone knows the most dangerous place in America is the turf that stands between her and a TV camera.
This time she really beclowned herself.
Poor little Gloria thought she had the October surprise. She was going to bring down the Romney campaign.
Staples founder Tom Stemberg, who is a friend of Mitt Romney, went through a nasty divorce a number of years back. All of the testimony from depositions and other hearings in the divorce was ordered sealed. While the news stories do not specify this, it seems likely at some point the divorce settled by Tom Stemberg’s ex-wife agreed to a really tight non-disclosure agreement as a part of the settlement.
Such agreements are not uncommon. Top-level executives do not want bitter ex-wives (or now ex husbands) running around saying nasty things about them. Those kinds of things can destroy a career.
Gloria Allred somehow connected with Stemberg’s ex-wife and figured she had just hit the win-win scenario. Mitt Romney testified in a deposition in the divorce. According to published reports, most of his testimony dealt with the valuation of Staples.
Allred figured either there was something really damning in the deposition or better yet, Romney would raise hell about releasing the sealed deposition. That could be even better because it would open the door to all kinds of speculation.
Romney threw her when he said he had no objection to the deposition being unsealed.
Turns out there is nothing there.
Of course, given Gloria Allred’s track record, that should be no surprise.
But then came the really funny part.
Allred wanted the Judge to release Stemberg’s wife from the non-disclosure agreement so presumably she could trash Mitt Romney.
The Judge told her no.
Why did the Judge tell her no?
Because Allred did not file a motion requesting this!
Every lawyer will tell you and even first year law students know, if you want the Judge to do something, you have to file a motion. The purpose of a motion is to put the other side on notice as to what you want. Due process requires notice so that if there is an objection, they have time to raise it and properly prepare.
Allred apparently thought just because she was Gloria Allred, this judge was going to simply roll over and grant her request, without a motion.
Allred was stunned. She went out later and blamed this on the Boston Globe, which had also filed a motion to have the transcript unsealed.
It looks like the Botox has gotten to Allred’s brain. Of course, she is a far leftist, so she isn’t that bright to begin with. She is fortunate that California does not require lawyers to be recertified or take the bar over.
Otherwise, she might have to find a real job.
LOL, Judson. I guessed who you meant, and I didn't even know the whole story, other than she didn't seem to have what she thought she had.
G. W. Coyne
Regardless of California's laws she needs to be disbarred. She's nothing but a POS that is never up to any good.
And here I thought it was about Harry Reid from the head lines.........................
Great story! Glad to hear it! Thanks for telling it!
This has not been a good week for women who belong to the democrat.
First obama throws hillary under the bus while bill holds her down, now the boston globe tosses allred under the bus and soes a whelly on her.
Nope, not a good week to be a leftist trying to be obama's Lewinsky.
I think he is funny anyway.
Well it wasnt who i thought it was. sorry about that i just didnt get the joke.
Well, ya know, some people just throw THEMSELVES under the bus, . . . . . . wink !
Thanks, Judson, I needed a laugh! :)
After seeing the non-sense going on with Elizabeth Warren, we should check to see if Allred is even licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
