Alan Kluger and the Case of the Sour Grapes


Yesterday we posted here about the 11th Circuit's smack down of Raanan Katz. You knew it was only a matter of time before Alan Kluger, the lawyer responsible for the loss for Mr. Katz, would start to spin.

Today, in this article by Noreen Marcus, Mr. Kluger shows once again that he can't keep his big mouth shut loses an awful lot is contemptuous for the federal courts is the only one who believes his own bullshit will keep fighting for his client until the money runs out.

From the DBR:
Kluger tried to belittle the federal litigation. "It's not the case, it's a case," he said. "The fight was shutting down her blog and getting her to pay him substantial damages for the defamation, all of which happened."
And in the process focus a brighter spotlight on the very image your client wanted to suppress in the first place. And earned a published opinion that is the seminal analysis of fair use in the 11th Circuit which all lawyers will rely upon and which contains derisive commentary about your client that is preserved in perpetuity! A huge win for sure!

The is an old saying that every lawyer does not get the client he deserves, but every client gets the lawyer he deserves.
Referring to Chevaldina's Russian immigrant background, [Kluger] added, "That's what makes our country the greatest country in the world. People like her can flee totalitarian governments and act vilely, and we protect them. And that's good."
Vile, indeed.

And of course, the ever classy Ben Kuehne, who kicked Alan's short ass from here to Atlanta and back won handily:
"Mr. Katz has used his money to try to bring Ms. Chevaldina to ruin, and he has been unsuccessful in trying to use federal intellectual property litigation against her," said Ben Kuehne, the Miami lawyer who represented the defendant in U.S. District Court.

do not ever, ever refer a case to Little Alan. He stuffs lawyers on referral fees. Glad Ben kicked his ass in the 11th.

Such a universally well-regarded guy. An inspiration to every brown-noser and suck-up.

Particularly loved the front page of the DBR which published the picture of Kluger's client that he tried to suppress. No matter the spin, Kluger lost. Great post.

My friend Marc Burton from law school was co-lead counsel on this case with Ben Kuehne. I am so proud of Marc! Really interesting case as well.
