Mr. Jerome Fishkin of Fishkin & Slatter who presently represents Sergio Garcia. Fishkin, not a stranger to the Leslie Brodie Report given his involvement in the 60 Days Suspension Scandal, was previously the subject of an ethics complaint for engaging in discriminatory practices and speech that demonstrate invidious animosity toward a group different from that to which he belongs, namely White Christians — which is otherwise an irritant to him.
