Folks its appears that the legal department at the Super 8 Motel is very good at filing suits and promoting them in the media but not so good at doing anything constructive with them. With the day of reckoning approaching in Gates v Swartz Danny Abel filed this:
It appears Abel is having a hard time finding another lawyer to take the Swartz suit, which is to be expected given I feel safe in saying that Abel is the only lawyer in Louisiana that would style a suit like Swartz against a sitting State court judge alleging Treason. By all accounts Swartz is considered a straight shooter as a judge, his transgression against Abel client/son Shane Gates being is he was assigned the criminal case State of Louisiana v Gates.
But there is more because it appears Abel is selective at what cases he is sick with cancer unable to work. Here he is taking part in scheduling conferences in Will v Pohlmann on January 9, 2014:
But Abel shows up most in Yount v Steitle where he is representing his in house troll Chris Yount in a hotly contested divorce. For instance here is Abel on January 21, 2014 filing a contempt motion on Yount’s behalf:
But that case gets better because Judge Ray Steib recused himself after a disturbing picture drawn by Yount’s minor child prompted an outside intervention.
And of course the disturbing picture drawn by the child imparts the reason why this became such an important matter. To the extent my own Mother was a recognized special needs director for three K-12 school districts here in Mississippi, I know enough to know there is some serious human psychology at play thus the “important matter” part.
This brings me back to the latest motion in Gates v Swartz where Abel tells the court:
Undersigned counsel had surgery and was diagnosed with cancer at the end of December
Late December? I seem to remember the problem manifesting itself earlier than late December. Here is the salient documentation:
