One day folks the entire story of the litigation with the Goatherders will be told but over the last two months Danny Abel has begun a letter writing campaign including an ex parte letter to Judge Louis Guirola which I will term very ill advised. The bottom line is it appears the new Goatherder legal strategy is to engage in the very behavior that have been the subject of so many of their lawsuits through time. Sigmund Freud termed this phenomenon of the insane projection. I call it manna from heaven. First up is a letter straight from Goatherder legal at Jones Walker:
For my part forcing Danny Abel on the very Judges that sanctioned him days before made me a happy man for several reasons beyond the obvious. Henry Laird and Jones Walker never had the law on their side so this always a smear job instead of a lawsuit. First Laird printed and produced for the court every uncomplimentary thing I ever wrote about Magistrate Walker and his poor performance in the Katrina wind water cases. When I heard of this I wondered if he included his client Anita Lee’s (via her employer the Sun Herald) criticisms of Walker for the same stuff but somehow I think not. Like NAAS said long ago, people that can’t pound the table with facts use their fists instead.
Next up is the Goatheder motion where Leary and Perret claim, via their lawyer Henry Laird:
Mr. Abel says there had been a fraud perpetuated (sic) upon the district court. A copy of the letter is attached as Exhibit “A”. Trout Point, Perret, and Leary cannot and do not vouch for the accuracy or inaccuracy of Mr. Abel’s fraud charge, however since the charge is so serious, they believe the record on this appeal should be expanded to include Mr. Abel’s letter.
A fraud perpetrated upon the court? This sounds like shades of Webb v Morella where Abel was spectacularly sanctioned for filing a frivolous appeal. This screen capture from my post detailing Abel’s problem collecting court sanctions sums it up:
Yes it is indeed called projection. Now that motion filed by the Media Department of Jones Walker:
The letter to which the Goatherders refer has major problems more ways than I can count and I can’t comment on any of that. What I can say is Danny Abel has accused my lawyer and myself of committing crimes as he, with the assistance of Henry Laird at Jones Walker appear actively engaged in the very conduct for which they have sued me:
The Fifth Circuit turned these Goatherders down in record time so what is a unsatisfied Goat to do? Well you force the issue by filing a Motion to Reconsider Clerk’s 04/25/13 Denial of Appellants’ Motion to Supplement. Yes, please make sure every judge reads Danny Abel’s latest bit of legal kookery. These self proclaimed Park Avenue lawyers are indeed a funny race.
