Re: Matthew Whitaker

Separation of powers issues, as SLQ suggests, I can buy. As far as standing, it would seem that United States Senators might have standing on the grounds that the appointment could be seen as an abrogation of the Senate's prerogative of advise and consent. To my embarrassment, I was reminded a coupl...

Re: Michael Avenatti

To go back to FRP’s point, LA police wouldn’t have arrested based on a discredited photo, followed by $50,000 bond. Right? And didn’t he have to be someone he knew to generate the felony domestic violence? This photo may be a post-event red herring. Who knows. It just seems suicidal to do this to a...

Re: U.S. Navy destroyer collides with merchant vessel off Japan

This non-lawyer thinks that the defence lawyer has a point. The later John Mcain incident does indicate a possible systemic problem. No doubt, but does a command failure by his superiors excuse the CO? Seems like kind of a tu quoque defense. If Maybenaut has any thoughts on the motion to dismiss, I...

This is silly, it just stirs up more drama to distract from things like, the Kashoggi issue. I agree with the comment upthread that all they really have to do is ignore him, if that's what they wanted.

Panda, if it's proven that TMZ's actions were indeed "purposely malicious and false," are you saying there's no recourse because he's a public figure? The bar set by New York Times v.

He is a public figure, but his ex-wife isnt. It sounds like he's planning to sue on her behalf, at least at first.
He can't sue on her behalf. He has no standing. She has to sue on her own behalf.

Besides, we've seen how good he is at avoiding SLAPP motions.

Re: Michael Avenatti

TMZ should send Avenatti a copy of New York Times v. Sullivan. Being a public figure is a real bitch sometimes. If you don't want to have a vastly higher threshold for defamation, don't go seeking lots of attention. In other words, something something heat and kitchen.
