But first some lovely music from our friends in Spain:
The allegations of fraud are priceless folks. Business must be bad for the gang at the Lodge because the Civil District Cost Docket indicates the court fees were short paid. Of course, in Randall Cajun’s fantasy world Slabbed’s precedent setting SPEECH Act victory over these SLAPP Happy nuts occurred in New Orleans instead of Gulfport. They also conveniently ignore the fact their Nova Scotia lawsuits were so poorly plead the court concluded they could never win a default here in the US with such deficient, infantile pleadings. The judicial beatdown frankly could not have been worse for them but that is their own fault. As for Slabbed, we remain the champs.

And it carries pretty much the standard definition in the world of financial message board communications as it does in the Navy. Wanna know a bit more about your fellow “anonymous” message boarders. Get a fix via sonar and then:
After the explosion information always bubbles up and that was certainly the case with the saga of Judge Susie Morgan’s former law clerk turned accused pedophile Thomas “Haller” Jackson. I could not have been more personally delighted with the results of my last depth charge thus we begin with David Lat over at Above the Law, who was kind enough to link Slabbed’s coverage of the Jackson arrest. Here is Lat’s last update to his post on same:
In response to a number of the comments, I would observe that (1) the allegations describe truly reprehensible and disgusting conduct (even though there was no actual boy involved); (2) if the allegations are true, then Haller Jackson should be punished to the full extent of the law; and (3) the sexual abuse of children is a deadly serious problem. I would have thought that (1) this all went without saying and (2) an audience composed mainly of lawyers and law students would understand the presumption of innocence. But based on some of the comments, it seems that I was wrong. Hence this update.
I think the lawyers and nonlawyers all understood Mr. Lat’s post but it would be a reader comment such as this one that prompted the post update:
“At least he was carrying condoms. You don’t need a Ph.D. in epidemiology to know the wisdom of using protection in random sexual encounters. . . . It sounds like Haller Jackson is in a relatively good position, under the circumstances. . . . The younger Haller Jackson and I have been friendly for a number of years — we know each other through his former boss, Chief Judge Kozinski (who has had his own racy misadventures online) — and I was shocked by these allegations. Nothing I know of Haller Jackson would lead me to believe he could engage in such conduct — and I suspect that the four federal judges for whom he clerked feel the same way. He did, after all, have to pass background checks in order to obtain his multiple clerkships.” Jesus Fucking Christ, Lat. Innocent until proven unpreftigious is not even a joke anymore. He is in a “good position” after trying to fuck a ten year old. He actively solicited sex with a ten year old, but since the ten year old did not exist and he is a Koz alum, it’s all good? I thought the FREE KEVIN RING was bad, but by comparison, that article might as well be In Cold Blood. This might be my tipping point with your website. It was fun while it lasted.
14.03 (1) Nothing in Part 5 diminishes the application of the implied undertaking not to use information disclosed or discovered in a proceeding for a purpose outside the proceeding, without the permission of a judge.
Folks tomorrow’s show cause hearing for sanctions is still on for 10:00 am in Judge Morgan’s courtroom while the hearing on the special motion to strike has been cancelled. There is a flurry of behind the scenes activity and legal has requested I not comment beyond that. I’ll likely have a press release on this topic sometime tomorrow.
We’re going for his license to practice in federal courts as Danny Abel has a history, habit and pattern of disobeying the Louisiana and Federal Courts. Judge Morgan’s order is 4 pages long – following are all 4 pages:
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.
