A Kirkland & Ellis associate left a hateful/harassing voice message last week for the lead lawyer for the Trump campaign — campaign lawyer asked for sanctions but so far the court has done nothing on this. The Trump lawyer has had death threats, courtesy Lincoln Project doxing.
Over 9,000 attorneys made contributions to Lincoln Project, including over $1k contributions from partners at 40 large firms... the money is used in part to attack and crowd-source harassment of attorneys representing clients in court, a protected constitutional act. Despicable.
I’m told the court scolded the firm, did not sanction the attorney. Maybe the client asked firm to withdraw, or maybe firm suggested it. Firm tried to excuse the conduct by saying associate did it on her own time, was not on case, had gurgling baby in the background. Nice try...
Yes, I made a list for my own research. No, I’m not posting it publicly. Enough of this Lord of the Flies crap.
State bars don't disbar people for this, don't even sanction them typically unless there is theft or gross misconduct or a crime takes place. But I've seen lawyers sanctioned $500 for not wearing business attire, showing up late, being unprepared, etc. -- this is worse, but the
Associate wasn't working on case & the firm claims she didn't know about the representation. At a large firm such as Kirkland, that part about not knowing her firm was involved is very plausible. But the unprofessional conduct itself against any lawyer, should not be tolerated.

🧵 News! Our clients @GOP & @GaRepublicans moved to intervene to defend GA election laws under attack by a Democrat SuperPAC & other leftwing dark money groups claiming GA’s wet signature requirement on absentee ballots is somehow unconstitutional?!
2/Marc Elias & crew would have you believe that using an electronic signature on your absentee ballot application is a voting rights travesty. This made-up issue ignores that Georgia makes all voting, including absentee voting, easy. Record turnout last month proves it!
3/ Dems have brought similar cases recently under the federal Civil Rights Act, asking courts to adopt a distorted reading of the law. GA has every right to regulate its absentee voting process & require safeguards such as handwritten signature on absentee ballot applications.

🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨Tennessee court orders our client @robbystarbuck restored to the ballot as a candidate for TN-5 congressional race! Court says TNGOP violated open meeting law and thus its secret meeting picking otherwise-qualified candidates off the ballot was void:
My partner @MikeColumboEsq represented @robbystarbuck on these claims in federal court; federal judge suggested we pursue state claims in state court, which Robby did with our excellent co-counsel, Sherrard Roe Voigt Harbison. This is a huge victory for transparency in elections!
3/ we are all in different places but ecstatic over this victory and all kudos go to @robbystarbuck who did not give up in the face of the establishment, one court loss, and a rapid and very stressful court battle that took place in days and weeks. Good luck Robby!! 🥹🥹🥹

Having to fly @AmericanAir today for business. Despite million miler, top tier loyalty status and first class tickets, met with downright hostile and entitled gate staff when boarding at SFO. So much for “thank you for choosing American for your travel needs”! More like FU…
The check-in lady was lovely and helpful. Old school. Boy did that buzz dissipate fast!
UPDATE: @AmericanAir service represenatative called me and said they would conduct an investigation to get the gate crew's "side of the story." Ok sure... 🙄

I always thought the police would be the brave ones to step up and save citizens from carnage, until the San Jose riot in 2016 when 250 riot gear clad cops from all over the bay area stood down and watched Trump supportes get assaulted by an organized mob. Children and elderly /
2/ & everything in between punched, beaten, dragged, robbed, chased, all within yards of the federal courthouse, and the cops only acted to BLOCK safe pathways to exit. I sued, and won an important ruling on qualified immunity in the 9th cir. under state-created danger doctrine/
3/ but the federal trial court dismissed the mayor (who had tweeted out that we were asking for it and it was Trump's fault) and various other fake, judicially-created immunities and doctrines designed to protect police from their own cowardice, mistakes, and malfeasance, barred/
