Goatherder Legal: Another crash and burn on display in the local media

St. Tammany DA ramps up charge against legal adversary ~ Sara Pagones

Vincent Wynne, who represents GDH and Riecke, points to the fact that the federal lawsuit was dismissed and that his clients won their civil suit against Sharp. Wynne said that attorney Danny Abel, who initially represented Sharp and filed the federal suit, had “left a mess” and “put up so many smokescreens,” costing his clients money.

Vance, the federal judge, ordered Abel to pay the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office attorney’s fees of $22,382 in a separate but similar case, in which Abel had accused the office of violating a St. Tammany woman’s rights by seizing certain items in a search.

Abel has also been admonished by Rothschild for making irresponsible claims of fraud against the District Attorney’s Office in yet another, also unrelated case.

Sources tell Slabbed Mr. Sharp has since obtained professional legal representation. Stay tuned.

    1. In 1935 he became Prosecutor General of the USSR, the legal mastermind of Joseph Stalin’s Great Purge. Although he acted as a judge, he encouraged investigators to procure confessions from the accused. In some cases, he prepared the indictments before the “investigation” was concluded.[15] He is widely cited for the principle that “confession of the accused is the queen of evidence” despite his monograph Theory of Judicial Proofs in Soviet Justice (which was awarded the Stalin Prize in 1947) stating directly the opposite, nor did he coin the phrase, which originated in Ancient Rome. Stalin personally gave direction on the use of confessions and the use of the death penalty. Furthermore, he edited some of Vyshinsky’s speeches.[16]

      He first became a nationally known public figure as a result of the Semenchuk case of 1936.[17] Konstantin Semenchuk was the head of the Glavsevmorput station on Wrangel Island. He was accused of oppressing and starving the local Yupik and of ordering his subordinate, the sled driver Stepan Startsev, to murder Dr. Nikolai Vulfson, who had attempted to stand up to Semenchuk, on 27 December 1934 (though there were also rumors that Startsev had fallen in love with Vulfson’s wife, Dr. Gita Feldman, and killed him out of jealousy).[18] The case came to trial before the Supreme Court of the RSFSR in May 1936; both defendants, attacked by Vyshinsky as “human waste,” were found guilty and shot, and “the most publicized result of the trial was the joy of the liberated Eskimos.”[19]

      In 1936, Vyshinsky achieved international infamy as the prosecutor at the Zinoviev-Kamenev trial (this trial had 9 other defendants) , the first of the Moscow Trials during the Great Purge, lashing its defenseless victims with vituperative rhetoric:[20]

      Shoot these rabid dogs. Death to this gang who hide their ferocious teeth, their eagle claws, from the people! Down with that vulture Trotsky, from whose mouth a bloody venom drips, putrefying the great ideals of Marxism!… Down with these abject animals! Let’s put an end once and for all to these miserable hybrids of foxes and pigs, these stinking corpses! Let’s exterminate the mad dogs of capitalism, who want to tear to pieces the flower of our new Soviet nation! Let’s push the bestial hatred they bear our leaders back down their own throats!

      He often punctuated speeches with phrases like “Dogs of the Fascist bourgeoisie,” “mad dogs of Trotskyism,” “dregs of society,” “decayed people,” “terrorist thugs and degenerates,” and “accursed vermin.”[21] This dehumanization aided in what historian Arkady Vaksberg calls “a hiterto unknown type of trial where there was not the slightest need for evidence: what evidence did you need when you were dealing with ‘stinking carrion’ and ‘mad dogs’?”[22]

      During the trials, Vyshinsky misappropriated the house and money of Leonid Serebryakov (one of the defendants of the infamous Moscow Trials) who was later executed.[23]

  1. “Wynne said that attorney Danny Abel, who initially represented Sharp and filed the federal suit, had “left a mess” and “put up so many smokescreens,” costing his clients money.”

    Never good when opposing attorney feels sorry for the person he’s suing because of his f’d-up choice of representation. Beware the goatherd.

    1. Doug is cakling with gle as to when he can post the fulfillment of Vance’s order. A copy of the payment will look just right.

      Of course, sensing the typical goatherd mentality, it will be an NSF check. What are the odds a Louisiana disabled attorney (DA) will prosecute given Abel’s “connections”? LOL
