I tell you folks, media ignorance mixed with legal jackassery is a deadly combo, just ask Butch Martin and his wife. I mention this because while Danny Abel crashes and burns under the weight of multiple court sanctions and legal malpractice lawsuits a right wing nut from New York named Raquel Okyay is pumping his lawsuits for a so called conservative website named Human Events that apparently runs off like a rabid dog promoting every lawsuit that involves guns that comes to their attention. The irony of the guy that tried suing the gun makers into oblivion a bit over a decade ago now having a media shill promoting his wacko, conspiracy theory laden lawsuits is rich. So along those lines last month Aaron Broussard’s former law partner at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview planted another story with Okyay involving Abel’s crash and burn Manton lawsuit and I’ll be doggone if he doesn’t repeat some of the kookiest allegations against Sheriff Strain in a story that goes beyond being disingenuous IMHO.
Last time someone from thousands of miles away pretended to be an authority on issues down here was when State Farm shill David Rossmiller was promoting the company’s interests in the wind water litigation here after Katrina. He is in fact a wind water poseur that has never tried a single such case. Now we have right wing nuts from New York and New Hampshire spreading fantasies about the court cases down here in Soggy Bottom. Slabbed is down with the second amendment and I own a few firearms myself. It is a shame dupes undermine their own credibility pumping Abel’s crash and burn lawsuits.
In other news hot off the press is a 5th Circuit brief in the case Webb v LaSalle, which appears the deformed, half-aborted stepchild of Webb v Morella. Something tells me there will be no oral arguments in the case because it is starting to sound like a broken record:
On May 8, 2012, three weeks later, the district court dismissed Webb v. Morella, the first Webb suit, and granted Morella’s motion for sanctions. The Webbs filed a Notice of Appeal, and Webb v. Morella was lodged in this Court as Case No. 12-30617. On April 12, 2013, this Honorable Court disposed of Webb v. Morella in an unpublished per curiam, affirming the district court’s dismissal and imposition of sanctions.
Webb v. LaSalle, the second Webb suit, met the same end in the district court as did Webb v. Morella. On November 30, 2012, the district court dismissed Webb v.
LaSalle pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6). The district court again imposed Rule 11 sanctions. Noting that Webb v. Lasalle had been filed three days before the court heard motions and dismissed Webb v. Morella, the district court ruled that Webb v. LaSalle set forth “…baseless, conclusory allegations contrary to the Rule 11 certifications made to the Court,” that there had been no reasonable inquiry into the facts and law prior to filing suit and that “Plaintiffs only purpose in bringing the suit was to harass defendants.”
And as with all the recent Goatherder litigation it includes lots of wild, unsupported conspiracy theories:
The roll call of alleged, compliant conspirators is long and includes individuals, public bodies, and a private LLC: (1) Patterson Police Chief Patrick LaSalle, (2) the Patterson Police Department, (3) the Morgan City Police Department, (4) Morgan City Police Officer “John Doe,” (5) Joseph Morrella, referred to as “Judge” Joseph Morella, (6) St. Mary Parish School Board, (7) Kenneth Lockett, the school district’s Supervisor of Child Welfare, (8) Niki Fryou, a school district principal, (9) Bourgeois Medical Clinic, LLC, (10) Dr. Robert Bourgeois, the medical clinic manager, (11) Dr. Melvin Bourgeois, the founder and a member of the Bourgeois LLC, and (12) “Dr. John Doe,” a Bourgeois Medical Clinic staff physician. [USCA5 14-16] Nothing in the lawsuit explains, or attempts to explain, why these numerous, alleged coconspirators, none of whom had anything to do with the sour real estate deal involving the Webbs, LaSalle and Morella, threw their hats in the ring and agreed to commit an unlawful act.
What a waste of both the district and appellate court’s time. Next Wednesday will be interesting indeed. I think I’ll invite Raquel. 😉

Doug, instead of assailing the so-called “wing nut,” you might take the offensive and point out to the “wing nut” that he IS being used by an enemy. Looking at the “wing nut”‘s philosophy, if he is true to same, he’d prove more attuned with you than to Abel.
For example, the fact that you are calling down government for its innate kleptocratic manner as evidenced from unearthing local fraud is on par with Abel allegedly calling into question police thuggery. Bt you’d score more highly given the fact that Abel is merely shaking down the moneytree, and indeed, as evidenced by the totality of Abel’s actions, Abel is philosophically aligned with Leviathan: Abel simply is using Leviathan to produce money for him in a manner befitting corporatism aligned with Leviathan, a scheme which true libertarians and small government conservatives criticize along with other government actions.
I understand Human Events may have lurched off the path of limited government some time ago. Yet it is worth a try noting to them your position, especially given the facts you can bring to bear versus those of a big government crony like Abel.
I always start off nicely Empire. That was about two months ago with Raquel.
When one writes such trash in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, there are a few possibilities in play such as psychotropic drugs or perhaps a narrow minded world view that completely misses the point.
I’ll note the same was true of Rossmiller, who I also tried to engage nicely before figuring out it was an exercise in futility.
Understood, Doug, and you correctly asserted them as a “so-called conservative” website if they refused to grasp what you relayed. It is telling that so-called conservatives and former civil libertarians are merely two wings of the same critter these days.
To paraphrase the late Al Davis, “Just keep in power. baby.”
I am with Empire (I think) in one regard. Why on earth do “Libertarians” align with the Republicans? The North Carolina Republicans are as busy as it gets passing laws to limit what local governments can do.
back on point, bordelon’s brief is not only a good read but a must read.
i am personally inviting mr. bordelon to attend the hearings on wednesday the 15th. i would also encourage any and every one who has an interest in ending the abuse of this litigious terrorist, danny abel, to also make their presence known.
Back on point, passa, looking at the facts of the case, admittedly as recited in the briefing, Bordelon was shooting fish in a barrel.
Of course it helps immensely the other side was schooled in the school of stupidity where law is written in law books in order to hide it.
