What a Chutzpah – – Girardi & Keese’s Thomas Girardi Assails Unimpeachable Stephen Larson

Former U.S. District Judge Stephen G. Larson, who recently left Girardi & Keese after less than two years to join Arent & Fox, was recently criticized by Tom Girardi of Girardi & Keese.

Thomas Girardi of Girardi & Keese

Mr. Thomas Girardi of Girardi & Keese.  Early on, Mr. Girardi was dubbed a “regular” on the Leslie Brodie Report.  Mr. Girardi is a “very good friend” of the former crack-addict– Mike Nisperos.  During the litigation against Dole, Girardi created an elaborate deception in order to shield himself. In addition to deceiving courts by his actions, he vexatiously and in multiple proceedings used judicial resources in a fraudulent manner in order to enrich himself, causing injury to Dole Food Company. Girardi’s misconduct was later adjudicated in a special Ninth Circuit Proceedings (In Re Girardi). During the In Re Girardi proceedings Mr. Girardi was represented by Thomas Nolan of Skadden Arps. Presently, both Girardi and Nolan are the subject of an ethics complaint relating to alleged undisclosed conflcits of inteststs between Skadden Arps and Girardi & Keese in the case of Fogel v. Farmers Group because, at the same time of In Re Girardi, Girardi & Keese and Skadden Arps were on opposing sides in the case of Fogel v. Farmers Group, Inc. See http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2011/04/05/ethics-complaint-filed-with-califor…  Presently, Mr. Girardi is also under heavy scrutiny for an undisclosed cy pres award in the amount of 900,000.00 to the AARP California, where State Bar of California Board of Governors member Jeannine English serve as president (Photo:courtesy)

Subsequent to Larson departure from Girardi & Keese, Mr. Girardi stated to the Daily Journal that Larson, “…isn’t cut out for this type of job.”

Larson, elegantly, stated to MetNews  “I have gotten to know many of the attorneys at Arent Fox,” during my legal career, and I praise their “professionalism, talent, and integrity” as “extraordinary,” Larson stated.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
