It's a short week and many of you are already away on vacation, so thanks for stopping by.
Here's my Monday list of horribles:
1. Scalito guts unions.
2. Frickin' Hobby Lobby (also a Scalito special).
3. Russ Adler goes to jail:
Adler, 52, who admitted he illegally funneled campaign donations to Republican presidential and Senate campaigns on Rothstein's behalf, began visibly shaking in court as U.S. District Judge James Cohn announced his punishment.4. Roy Black comes to the Bieb's defense:
He put his fingers to his eyes and sighed deeply.
When the law firm was "awash with cash" in 2008 and 2009, Judge Cohn wondered aloud what exactly Adler – an experienced attorney and name partner – thought was happening.
"Mr. Adler was at the epicenter, he was at ground zero. Was he blind and deaf as to what was going on?" the judge asked. "The public needs to see that there is a price to pay for conduct such as this."
The lawsuit was filed by photographer Jeffery Binion a year ago, just days after he was allegedly attacked by Bieber’s bodyguards on the singer’s orders.Embarass Bieber?
Among the things that DiCowden wants to know is whether the violence in Bieber’s entourage was a business decision to urbanize Bieber’s milk toast image.
DiCowden already attempted to depose Braun in L.A. in April but the manager never showed up. If he doesn’t this time, he’ll likely face serious sanctions.
Black argued that DiCowden’s goal in deposing Braun was to embarrass Bieber.
Come on Roy, you're good but not even you can convince us this jackarse is capable of that emotion.
