Welp folks, what can I say except continued very hard times over at the Legal Department of the Super 8 Motel on Clearview……

Click the pic to get the latest legal malpractice lawsuit filed against Danny Abel, one of Aaron Broussard’s firehose friends.

Suggs v Estill and Abel

In this episode of Magnum JD: Wanna quick check? Check with James….

What we have here folks is a garden variety legal malpractice suit with some very salacious allegatiopns of fraud.  I checked lawyer David Greenberg out and got a very good report on the man so this suit and its salacious allegations certainly bears watching. ~ sop

Slabbed finds Danny Abel and Aaron Broussard together in the "Legal Department" at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview

Folks, Danny Abel and Aaron Broussard go wayyyyy back so it is no surprise that Broussard represented Abel in a suit public adjuster Earl Carr filed against Abel for legal malpractice. The suit made a few blawgs like this one out of Chicago but frankly my interest in the case is predicated on the fact that Abel and Broussard appear to be part of the “legal department” at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview Parkway. This case was decided by the Louisiana 5th Circuit Court of Appeals just last month in favor of Abel.

In a hint of what is coming at Slabbed from the Trout Point gang, public figures all, Abel cross sued Carr and his lawyers.  Of course as we saw from Paulsen v State Farm Abel’s abilities as a lawyer are not what they once were as he resorted to trickery and deceit in the conduct of that case. He came up empty in his counter suit against Carr too.

In any event I have some great stuff on tap concerning the legal team in Paulsen which as a group appear to be quite the litigious bunch. For instance here is a picture of Shane (D’Antoni) Gates taken after he was pulled over with a BAC of over .270 from the related federal court case. Now to be clear Gates’ name has not come up in connection with Trout Point Lodge but he did surface as a long time Danny Abel crony that co-owned the house in Slidell that was the subject of Eric Paulsen’s suit against State Farm we covered a few weeks back.  Simply put this bunch of guys provide us with fertile ground for examination as their path of destruction through life gives us some clues as to some of the longer term players in Aaron Broussard’s professional career.
