Parsing the Bloch v. Del Rey Complaint!


The strange race took a stranger turn after Judge Bloch sued his opponent.

Rump posted the complaint here.

Putting aside all the other issues at play in this campaign, from a pure legal perspective the lawsuit is weak tea at best. This is not to say the public should not be aware of the allegations, or that one candidate is better than the other, or any of that.  Just focusing on the legal allegations here.

Here are the allegations:

1. She based her financial numbers on 2014 figures, not 2015.
2. "Puerto Rican" income not detailed.
3. Speculation that she is hiding source because of questionable sex hotel activity etc.
4. Items 1 and 2 part of pattern of misleading public; she's not a former ASA.
5. She even gets the job title she's running for wrong.
6. Her Dad's funding an ECO/PAC.
7. All those big ads for her firm are being funded from PR and seem to be geared to the election.

In other words, not a work of art.

I don't know enough about the other allegations swirling in this race, but as lawyers we should be capable of evaluating them objectively, fairly and -- to the degree possible -- dispassionately.

Whats wrong with a sex hotel. Clean and reasonably priced rooms. The Biltmore is pricey for a couple hours of fun.

Really, without sex hotels people will be doing it in the cars and bushes and that's just tacky.
