Concocted evidence using false affidavits is their middle name……..

Weren’t the Goatherders blaming Hurricane Katrina in the ACOA litigation in Canada saying Danny Abel’s law office was in “New Orleans”?

In that affidavit, filed by Plaintiff Sampson on 12/26/09 in this proceeding, Chris Yount swears that he served Mr. Whetstone through the City Attorney on April 14th, 2004. However, then Plaintiff Sampson’s Supplemental Memorandum admits on 12/31/2009, that this mistaken or false affidavit was a “mistake” attributable to Hurricane Katrina. No mention of the undisputed fact that Mr.Whetstone was not employed by the City at the time of the attempted service is made. The newly scanned Record Document Numbers 2 and 8 in 04-1052 show that Mr. Yount did not go to the City Attorney’s office on April 14th, 2004 as he swore on 12/26/2009 under penalty of perjury, but Mr. Abel went to the City Attorney’s Office instead, as he acknowledges in his 12/31/09 supplemental memorandum.

Yes it is true Chris Yount is a Goatherder troll from way far back but what attracted me to Sampson v Whetstone was the fact it exhibits another of Danny Abel’s crash and burn civil rights lawsuits against NOPD as I continue with document 59-4:

(F). The Motion filed by attorney Daniel Abel in support of the Confirmation of Default on December 19th, 2006, ( Doc. # 36, Exhibit “1-C”), erroneously states that “the summons and citation were duly served on defendant MICHAELWHETSTONE on 11 February 2005″. This statement is not true, and it also conflicts with the date of service purportedly upon the City Attorney of April 14th, 2004, given by the other Affidavit filed by attorney Daniel Abel in support of the Preliminary Default on July 22, 2005 (Doc. # 18, Exhibit “1-B”). Thus, the two motions and affidavits filed in support of the confirmation of default are inconsistent with, and conflict with, each other.
(G). The Affidavit filed by attorney Daniel Abel in support of the Confirmation of Default on December 19th, 2006, ( Doc. # 36, Exhibit “1-C”), erroneously states in Paragraph 2 that “Whetstone was an officer of the NOPD at all pertinent times hereto”.
(H). The Affidavit filed by attorney Daniel Abel in support of the Confirmation of Default on December 19th, 2006, ( Doc. # 36, Exhibit “1-C”), erroneously states in Paragraph 4 that “service was made on Whetstone, returned, and entered in the docket.”
(I). On the original Complaint filed in 04-1052 (Doc. #1), an incorrect service address is listed for Mr. Whetstone.

Crash and burn at the hands of Judge Engelhardt? Slabbed reports, you decide. Next up some lovely music:

Is there a pattern developing of suing, then demonizing the lawsuit victim in legal pleadings for its own sake? This wouldn’t work for a lawyer that is perceived as squeaky clean ethically but for a bunch that completely lacks clean hands it is especially farcical.  Respected Northshore lawyer Chuck Hughes, himself the subject of a Goatherder inspired lawsuit and Channel 4 attack piece via Gates v Strain explains: Continue reading “Concocted evidence using false affidavits is their middle name……..”

Let’s deconstruct part of the case: Slabbed takes another look back at USA v Sibley as we make a correction

In reference to this post dated November 13, 2012 which re-examined the federal prosecution of Hugh Sibley for money laundering, I wrote “multiple sources tell Slabbed that Desai is being represented in the matter by Greensburg area attorney David Opperman”.

Mr Opperman has informed Slabbed that he does not represent Nipun Desai in his criminal case. He confirmed he is Mr Desai’s civil attorney and that he occasionally teamed up with the Legal Department there at the Super 8 Motel representing Desai’s legal interests. He also indicated he considers Mr Desai to be one of his closest friends and understood the confusion regarding his representation of Mr Desai’s business interests in civil cases and his criminal case in the 24th JDC.

Additionally I inspected certain official paperwork on Mr Desai’s cocaine distribution case, which is currently before Judge Glenn Ansardi there in the 24th JDC. Mr. Desai’s arrest on cocaine distribution charges back in 2008 occured in the same general time period as the indictment of Hugh Sibley but the police report does not indicate a linkage between the two cases, though possession of 80 grams of cocaine in the managers suite of the hotel is certainly serious enough.

The goal of Slabbed New Media in the proverbial search for the truth is get the story right. I thank Mr Opperman speaking candidly with me about this matter and I hope this clears up any confusion.

Update:  Here is a copy of the police report on the Desai arrest for those so interested.
