Keith Wetmore – Chair of Morrison & Foerster – Hereby Asked to Comment on Peculiar and Abrupt Departure of Christopher Young of Keker & Van Nest (Formerly of Morrison & Foerster) Amid TLR’s Inquiry Re: CaliforniaALL, Lance Armstrong, and DOJ’s Tony West

Consistent with The Leslie Brodie Report commitment to integrity and adherence to the highest level of ethical journalism, and in order to report on both sides of a story; Keith Wetmore — Chair of Morrison & Foerster — is hereby asked by The Leslie Brodie Report to comment on the peculiar events surrounding the recent abrupt departure of former MoFo associate — Chris Young —  from San Francisco-based Keker & Van Nest.

 


Mr. Chris Young of Keker & Van Nest.  During the 2008 election, while employed as an associate with  Morrison & Foerster, Chris Young served as Barack Obama’s Northern California Deputy Finance Director and as National Campaign’s Northern California representative.  USDOJ’s Tony West (also of Morrison & Foerster) served as Co-Chair, California Finance Cmt.  Recently, Keker & Van Nest abruptly removed Young’s name from the roll of lawyers associated with the firm.  Similar to Tony West, Young is under scrutiny in connection with both events surrounding Lance Armstrong and sham non-profit entity CaliforniaALL.

 

MoFo Team
Morrison & Foerster Team (L-R) Ms. Dian Grueneich — Former Commissioner with California Public Utilities Commission (“CPUC”); Mr. Raj Chatterjee — current board member of the Foundation of State Bar of California (DBA California Bar Foundation, entity headed by Arnold & Porter’s Douglas Winthrop formerly of Howard Rice) ; Ms. Susan Mac Cormac — part of legal team which created entity CaliforniaALL, Mac Cormac was recently awarded “Rainmaker of the Year” by James Brosnahan’s alleged former mistress — Marty Africa of Major Lindsey & Africa; Mr. Tony West; Mr. James J. Brosnahan of “Voice of OC” who represented El Paso Corp during California energy crisis opposing Pierce O’Donnell, Joe Cotchett, and Thomas Girardi of Joe Dunn’s Voice of OC; Ms. Annette Carnegie, formerly member of the board of California Bar Foundation during the Hush-Hush subrosa transfer of $780,000 to CaliforniaALL; Ms. Diane Pritchard who practiced extensively before the CPUC while at MoFo.

Lance Armstrong, Keker & Van Nest, Elliot Peters, John Keker, Jon Streeter,
(L-R) Keker & Van Nest partners Elliot Peters, John Keker, Jon Streeter, and client Lance Armstrong.  Keker & Van Nest in general and Peters in particular are not strangers to The Leslie  Brodie Report given a chronic and vexatious propensity to mislead and exaggerate, such as was the case with client Howard Dickstein.  In connection with the Lance Armstrong investigation, Keker and Peters, falsely and maliciously, accused  news outlet “60 Minutes”  and correspondent Scott Pelley of  “demonstrable falsehood that you recklessly presented, and then bolstered with other untrue assertions and facts taken out of context.”  Needless to say, “60 Minutes” stood by its story as “truthful, accurate and fair.” Similarly, and continuing to act with impunity, Duo Keker/Peters accused Federal investigator Jeff Novitzky of leaking documents. Despite the existence of more plausible explanations to the source of the leaks (such as, arguendo, Assistant US Attorney Angela Davis –an ally and confederate of Keker & Van Nest’s Jon Streeter) John Keker stated falsely “we know Novitzky and plan to prove that these are his repeated, illegal leaks aimed solely at destroying a true hero.” (image:courtesy)

Please observe that, rather than contacting Mr. Wetmore directly, the query is being delivered publicly, here and now.

  • 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 […]

  • Working for the Judicial Council and a pattern of racketeering activity 2016/10/31
    The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
