Contempt of Court at the Super 8 Motel Legal Department……

As the contempt citations and Rule 11 sanctions mount on the author of the Trout Point Lodge Cookbook Daniel G. “Danny” Abel……

Finally, as demonstrated in the procedural history of this case and the court records, plaintiffs and plaintiffs’ counsel have demonstrated a clear pattern of frivolous and vexatious claims. Mr. Abel has also repeatedly failed to adhere to the requirements of this court and has shown a disturbing pattern of asserting potentially damaging allegations with no evidentiary basis whatsoever and of being inauthentic with the court, to put it mildly. For these reasons, the plaintiffs, Belva and Faith Webb, and their counsel, Mr. Daniel Abel, are hereby prohibited from filing any future claims before this court until the sanctions ordered under Rule 11 are paid in full.

While Danny Abel collects sanctions right wing nuts from the Northeast promote his lawsuits

I tell you folks, media ignorance mixed with legal jackassery is a deadly combo, just ask Butch Martin and his wife. I mention this because while Danny Abel crashes and burns under the weight of multiple court sanctions and legal malpractice lawsuits a right wing nut from New York named Raquel Okyay is pumping his lawsuits for a so called conservative website named Human Events that apparently runs off like a rabid dog promoting every lawsuit that involves guns that comes to their attention.  The irony of the guy that tried suing the gun makers into oblivion a bit over a decade ago now having a media shill promoting his wacko, conspiracy theory laden lawsuits is rich. So along those lines last month Aaron Broussard’s former law partner at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview planted another story with Okyay involving Abel’s crash and burn Manton lawsuit and I’ll be doggone if he doesn’t repeat some of the kookiest allegations against Sheriff Strain in a story that goes beyond being disingenuous IMHO.

Last time someone from thousands of miles away pretended to be an authority on issues down here was when State Farm shill David Rossmiller was promoting the company’s interests in the wind water litigation here after Katrina. He is in fact a wind water poseur that has never tried a single such case.  Now we have right wing nuts from New York and New Hampshire spreading fantasies about the court cases down here in Soggy Bottom.  Slabbed is down with the second amendment and I own a few firearms myself. It is a shame dupes undermine their own credibility pumping Abel’s crash and burn lawsuits.

In other news hot off the press is a 5th Circuit brief in the case Webb v LaSalle, which appears the deformed, half-aborted stepchild of Webb v Morella. Something tells me there will be no oral arguments in the case because it is starting to sound like a broken record:

On May 8, 2012, three weeks later, the district court dismissed Webb v. Morella, the first Webb suit, and granted Morella’s motion for sanctions. The Webbs filed a Notice of Appeal, and Webb v. Morella was lodged in this Court as Case No. 12-30617. On April 12, 2013, this Honorable Court disposed of Webb v. Morella in an unpublished per curiam, affirming the district court’s dismissal and imposition of sanctions.

Webb v. LaSalle, the second Webb suit, met the same end in the district court as did Webb v. Morella. On November 30, 2012, the district court dismissed Webb v.
LaSalle pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6). The district court again imposed Rule 11 sanctions. Noting that Webb v. Lasalle had been filed three days before the court heard motions and dismissed Webb v. Morella, the district court ruled that Webb v. LaSalle set forth “…baseless, conclusory allegations contrary to the Rule 11 certifications made to the Court,” that there had been no reasonable inquiry into the facts and law prior to filing suit and that “Plaintiffs only purpose in bringing the suit was to harass defendants.”

And as with all the recent Goatherder litigation it includes lots of wild, unsupported conspiracy theories: Continue reading “While Danny Abel collects sanctions right wing nuts from the Northeast promote his lawsuits”

Into the minds of the “Park Avenue” lawyers in the Goatherder Nation: Keep pumping Danny Abel’s letter writing campaign at the 5th Circuit boys!

What can I say folks but ROTFLMAO!!!!!!! Hot off the presses from the legal jackassery department over at the Super 8 Motel on Clearview:

Moreover, the Webbs’ attorney, Daniel G. Abel, has repeatedly engaged in sanctionable conduct before this court. In Chisei v. Auto Club Family Ins. Co., 374 F. App’x 475, 477 (5th Cir. 2010), a panel of this court awarded sanctions against Mr. Abel’s client because Mr. Abel’s briefs were “wholly without merit,” “fail[ed] to fairly address the substance of the district court’s findings,” and “demonstrate[d] a pointed disrespect for ‘the limited resources of the judicial system.’” (quoting Stearman v. Comm’r, 436 F.3d 533, 540 (5th Cir. 2006)). In Martin v. Magee, No. 12-30263, 2012 WL 6644228, at *2 (5th Cir. Dec. 12, 2012), another panel of this court imposed $3,000 in sanctions against Mr. Abel, after finding that his briefing “indentifie[d] no legal error and raise[d] no significant, appealable issue.” Mr. Abel’s actions in this case continue what the Martin panel correctly described as “a continued pattern of filing frivolous, vexatious appeals that waste judicial resources.” Id.

Because the instant appeal is frivolous, vexatious, and wastes judicial resources and because Mr. Abel has repeatedly abused the appellate process, we GRANT the motion for sanctions and impose sanctions against Mr. Abel in the amount of the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Morella in connection with this appeal. We REMAND to the district court for determination of reasonable fees and costs.

Now for some lovely music.

And it burns burns burns………

Gee, this sounds vaguely familiar. Here’s a teaser on part 3 of Continued bad times at the Legal Department of the Super 8 Motel on Clearview

One thing these Goatherders are good at folks is cashing in on their media connections as Slabbed has well chronicled the dishonest promotion of Danny Abel’s crash and burn lawsuits by Belo’s Channel 4 WWL Tee Vee. In that case it is a long association with morning anchor Eric Paulsen that provides the in at WWL but the aftermath is a bitch. Proof:

Magee v Abel Screen Capture 1

And so no one misses it this blurb from the above complaint adds much greater color to what I’ll term an unfortunate domestic incidence involving a certain Tee Vee news personality. 😉

Indeed Slabbed knows all but as we like to say here in Mississippi wait ’til you see the whites of their eyes….. Continue reading “Gee, this sounds vaguely familiar. Here’s a teaser on part 3 of Continued bad times at the Legal Department of the Super 8 Motel on Clearview”

Slabbed checks in with the Legal Department at the Super 8 Motel to present the latest Goatherder jackassery

Let’s start with this story by Allen Powell, Plaquemines School Board finance director indicted on theft charge.

The finance director for the Plaquemines Parish School Board has been indicted by a grand jury in connection with the theft of more than $46,000 from the school system.

Joyce Green, 50, 5148 Oak Bayou Road in Marrero, was charged with two counts of theft of more than $500 and one count of malfeasance in office by a Plaquemines Parish grand jury on Thursday, said District Attorney Charles Ballay.

Green is accused of asking a finance clerk to issue three checks for a total of about $77,000 in May for work she said she had completed. However, Ballay said that Green, who received two payments but not the third, was not entitled to the money, and that the school system has no record that she completed the work.

And now Abel spins that into the following defamation fantasy: Continue reading “Slabbed checks in with the Legal Department at the Super 8 Motel to present the latest Goatherder jackassery”
