Remember when the Worldnetdaily filed a $250 million lawsuit against Esquire magazine for a satirical post about Jerome Corsi’s birther book being pulled from store shelves? A federal judge quickly dismissed the case but WND appealed and their crack attorney, Larry Klayman, will give the oral argument on Thursday.
Klayman told WND it’s “a landmark case that could makes it all the way to the Supreme Court.”
“At issue is whether or not the media and public figures get special protection from defamation laws in this country,” he said. “The answer should be no, as no one should be above the law.
“I urge all of our supporters to come to the court room to politely watch and show the judges how important this case is — not just to WND and Jerome Corsi, but to the country,” Klayman said.
I’m sure Klayman will do his usual bangup job of representing his client. You know, like he did with Bradlee Dean, who now has to pay more than $20,000 in legal fees to NBC over the absurd lawsuit he filed against Rachel Maddow and the organization I used to work for, the American Independent News Network. And like when he took a $25,000 retainer from a woman and then didn’t do anything to defend her, resulting in the Florida Bar Association reprimanding him (his license is also under administrative suspension in Pennsylvania, apparently). And when he sued his ex-wife’s divorce attorney.And when he was sanctioned by a court in DC for failure to comply with multiple court orders in the suit he filed against Judicial Watch, the organization he founded but that apparently found him so useless that they booted him out. Or when a judge in New York in 2007 got so fed up with his “total disregard for the judicial process” and banned him from his courtroom. That judge cited 7 instances of other judges sanctioning Klayman for his conduct. Good choice on the lawyer, WND. I’m sure it’ll work out great for you.
