Give-em-hell Harry right about reports on Todd Graves

You can never get all the facts from just one newspaper, and unless you have all the facts, you cannot make proper judgments about what is going on.
No argument from me, Harry, I just finished a read-around – and Kansas City Star quotes Todd Graves saying he was in Disney World on March 11, the date of the “trailer meeting” with the Rigsby sisters.

Graves says any suggestion linking him to a meeting on March 11 — about two weeks before he officially left office — is wrong.

“I can’t more categorically or unequivocally say that’s…absolutely ridiculous,” Graves told Prime Buzz.

“Someone pieced together three things that don’t go together,” he said. “March 11 (the day of the alleged meeting) was a Saturday. I was at Disney World,” Graves said.

It will be interesting to track back and see how Graves name got linked to the story in the first place – for now, I’ll just point out that Missouri is the “show me” state.

Bet the Rigsby sister’s Missouri attorneys have plenty to show on Friday, Sop.

The “extraordinary, multifaceted, assault” of State Farm on the Hurricane Katrina lawyers, according to Parloff’s article, was launched in Judge Senter’s courtroom. Continue reading “Forbes blows the whistle on State Farm”

Justice slabbed by State Farm’s transparent defense

With the State Farm policy holders slabbed by Katrina, slabbed by State Farm’s handling of their claim, and most recently slabbed by Judge Senter’s disqualification of their legal representation are left twisting in the wind, State Farm “vigorous defense” is now a transparent attempt to slab them – and justice – once again.

The Motion to Stay filed yesterday by the attorneys for the Rigsby sisters noted the transparency.

This motion is nothing more than a transparent attempt to focus attention away from the fraud State Farm perpetrated on its own policyholders and on the federal government, and create a side-show big enough to camouflage its own obvious wrongdoing.

Comments on the web, however, suggest State Farm’s camouflage is wearing thin… Continue reading “Justice slabbed by State Farm’s transparent defense”
