Heck, if Judge Turnoff can talk about assholes in open court, I figure its open season.
Back in 2010, we covered the story of fired Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shrivel here. Andy, pictured above, abused his power and basically stalked, harassed and defamed a college kid. Or so found a jury yesterday, to the tune of 4.5 million. Read about it here.
Defamation, Stalking, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Invasion of Privacy - Shrivel loses all around.
His retort? "The jury trampled on my First Amendment rights, and I'll take this all the way to the Supreme Court!" (I'd like to lock you in a room with Godwhacker for 30 minutes you little shit, and see what gets trampled.)
First Amendment litigation and Supreme Court Practice require the very best, so you might want to choose a Harvard grad like David Lat. Heck, even if David is not capable of appellate work and is not a litigator and has never handled First Amendment Jurisprudence and doesn't even practice law, he may be familiar with the underlying subject matter.
Check out this article Davie wrote while at Harvard.
For those of you who don't access the links below is a highlight of Mr. Lat's article.
"Maybe the suicide rate among gay teenagers would be lower if more of them read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Church, mistakenly viewed by many as an enemy of homosexuals, in fact states that they "must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity."
Dude, you went to Harvard: what's your cite for that?
Anyhoo, below is a picture of David from his wiki page.
Looking at the pictures of Andrew and David, don't you think they'd have a lot to talk about?
