The Recorder: Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest on Clients Aaron Swartz and Lance Armstrong as Douglas Winthrop Discusses Merger Between Howard Rice / Arnold & Porter [TLR Note: Clearly death of Aaron Swartz suspect as part of disquieting events at “The Kapor Center” ; KVN assumes role previously held by James Brosnahan of MoFo — defending those who support the Democratic Party ; Peters prior attacks on prosecutor of Aaron Swartz without mentioning 6 Month Plea Deal – troubling ; Winthrop and Jerry Falk’s shenanigans to blame for demise of Howard Rice – Lesson? Karma happens]

When the prospect of merging with Arnold & Porter was put to Howard Rice’s partners for a vote, many of them thought the choice to combine was clear — especially when they considered the opportunities it would create for the firm’s youngest lawyers.

This month Elliot Peters’ young client hanged himself. Another client confessed his sins to Oprah. And yet another emerged as a poster boy for the feds’ controversial medical marijuana crackdown in California.

  • Five Yards is sufficient distance 2020/06/04
    Law enforcement didn’t recently start abusing citizens. Indeed, they’ve been abusing citizens since police departments were created. Today, nearly every citizen has a high resolution still & video camera on them in the form of a cell phone. Dash cameras that can be turned to record a police stop are commonplace. Body cameras are now […]
  • Another round of construction stimulus? 2020/05/25
    Today, they say that some 42% of those jobs where people were laid off will not return anytime soon. Much like the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided billions for shovel ready projects, it may happen again. But will the judicial council drop the ball again and refuse the money AGAIN? Probably. They dislike the […]
  • The number of county courts open today should be zero. 2020/03/19
    Social isolation and maintaining a six foot distance from each other is critical to flattening the curve. It’s entirely irresponsible to require in-person appearances of anyone when social isolation cannot be maintained. Any court requiring people to appear is issuing the equivalent of a death sentence for some and a sickness sentence for others. That’s […] […]
  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]
  • 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 […]
