Just Curious -- Has This Ever Happened to Any of You?


I guess it's going to be that kind of a day.

Let's see, so much going on:

1.  Speaking of wood, the Dershowitz saga rolls on, with former federal judge and prosecutor Tommy Boy Scott joining Dersh's legal team along with Kendall Coffey, filing a motion to intervene in the Epstein case.

Here's a taste:
Besides being wholly irrelevant, the allegations made in the Joinder Motion with respect to Prof. Dershowitz are categorically false. See Declaration of Alan Dershowitz, attached hereto as Exhibit A.

In fact, they are absolutely outrageous. Prof. Dershowitz is married and has three children and two grandchildren. He is the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School. Prof. Dershowitz, a graduate of Brooklyn College and Yale Law School, joined the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 after clerking for Judge David Bazelon and Justice Arthur Goldberg. Prof. Dershowitz is, among other things, a civil liberties attorney. During his long and distinguished career, he has published more than one thousand articles in newspapers, journals and magazines on a variety of topics. He has published fiction and non-fiction works and law review articles about criminal and constitutional law. He has received awards from many institutions and organizations for his work, including the Anti-Defamation League. In his private legal practice he represents individuals and corporations, and even provides counsel to various world leaders. Prof. Dershowitz’s reputation, which is sterling, is at the core of his remarkable career.
Meanwhile, the two lawyers who filed the original pleading have sued Dersh for defamation in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.

2.  Pizzi wants back in.

3.  Congrats to Josh Kaye, heading up the Miami office of DLA Piper.

(The kid's a mensch.)

4.  Kathy Rundle wants more social media:
"We encourage the criminals to post their photos and videos online."
Help her out, will you?

Alan thinks very highly of himself. Bill Cosby used to have an impeccable reputation too.

Where is Godwhacker to make a rude comment like "one man's wood is another man's candy?"

Scott and Coffey are so 1985. They've been over the hill for long time. I love them, but still.

One man's junk is another man's treasure! Is that better?
