Today, it was reported that in 2001 Elizabeth Warren represented a Massachusetts client in a Massachusetts Federal Courtroom in a case that involved Massachusetts law without a license to practice law in Massachusetts. The case was heard before the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston, and was titled Cadle Company v. Schlichtmann. Blogger Mark Thompson at the League of Ordinary Gentlemen, who had been Ms. Warren's most ardent defender until this new revelation, has changed his mind about Professor William Jacobson's argument that Ms. Warren has engaged in the unlicensed practice of

To think this unlicensed fraud held so much respect with the lefties that she contributed to ObamaCare and a host of other legislation - it boggles the mind. Lefties accept people like her even though they lie to the point where one would question their sanity. They accept them even though they commit any number of crimes against the groups lefties purport to protect - women and minorities.
Some general ideas in the Democrat party actually seem good, but after any degree of examination, they fall apart. I could never be a Democrat. I just don't understand them, and I never will.
Well, what the heck? She's just emulating The Great Impostor in the White House and the Veep, who was a football star at Delaware (except he wasn't, it turns out).
What do you expect? It's a DemocRAT gene. Besides...What's a license? It's only a piece of paper! I'm surprised Warren didn't photoshop an authentic license and just change the name and date. I hear you can do that with birth certificates.
#5, I agree. I have tried so hard to understand Democrats and how they think. I have done everything humanly possible to figure out how they could possibly believe the Democrat Party line. I can't. Not for the life of me! There is just NO WAY their side makes any sense at all to me. I think one would have to be very, VERY ignorant and very gullible to be a Democrat--especially in this day and age. Either that, or they have to be very evil and manipulative. Either way, I couldn't ever be one.
#11, the agenda takes precedence over everything. Everything. It doesn't matter if she's a liar, a crook, and hypocrite. It doesn't even matter that she screwed "the little people." She's a socialist. That's ALL that counts.
She's debating Brown Monday night at UMass/Lowell. Be interesting to see what transpires.
Top prerequisite to be a Democrat is one must know how to LIE with a straight face. #2 is to NEVER admit one has lied. This encompasses all from talking Pundits, journ-O-LIARS on up the rung of the ladder on which "the won" sits on the top rung.
There is no such thing as a national licence for anything. Each state requires licensed professionals to have a license from that particular state. A surgeon, lawyer, therapist, nurse, contractor, etc. all must have a license to practice in the state they are going to work. You either take the exams from that state (not the usual practice in most professions) or apply for 'reciprocity' which simply means that state recognizes your previous license from whatever state.
If true, what she did is illegal and is deserving of censure from where she is licensed and should face disbarrment. If I were Scott, I would pursue that angle first. There should be an immediate filing for re-trial of Cadle Company v. Schlichtmann (regardless of case outcome or details). The case was handled by an unlicensed attorney. The repercussions should be vast.
No, she gave up her NJ licence as she couldn't be bothered with the continuing Ed requirements.
However, being 1/64th Native American, she is not subject to state licencing laws - and can thus practice law any dang place she wishes. In fact, if she chose to, Mizz Lizzie could sell tax-free cigarettes from her back porch.
In order to appear in a U.S. District Court, the lawyer must be admitted by that district. In order to to be admitted, the lawyer must apply to the district court clerk, indicating that he/she is licensed in the state of that district (Massachusetts). A lawyer with a license in New Jersey, however, may appear in a district court in Massachusetts by applying to that court for permission to appear pro hac vice, meaning for that case. The attorney applying for the application must be sponsored by an attorney admitted in the host jurisdiction. If Ms. Warren had been licensed in New Jersey at the time she appeared in Massachusetts, she still needed to apply to appear pro hac vice. If she did not, she violated USDC District of Massachusetts Local Rule 83.5.3.
Good point #21. I think she is a hypocrite and a certified moonbat but as she was licensed in New Jersey (she just gave that up due to, she states "burden of continuing education requirements") I expect she was legal in her standing in Federal Court. Who she was representing might be of greater political impact.
#12...Fauxcahontas had law licenses in Texas and New Jersey. She gave up her Texas license some time ago. But even more interesting to me, on Sept. 11, 2012, she found time in the midst of her busy campaign to give up her New Jersey law license. WHY?
Personally, I think this is finally going to nail Fauxahontas. We all know that Dems don't give a hoot about honor and integrity, and will lie like a rug to protect a fellow Dem. But when it comes to their self-importance and their own money, they will eat their own.
No way will lawyers allow a precedent like having anyone (even a fellow Dem) be allowed to practice law without a license.
TALLAHASSEE —A nearly 6-foot-tall "Festivus" pole made from empty beer cans will be put up in the Florida Capitol this week as a not-so-subtle protest to the recent placement of a Christmas nativity scene. The mock monument will be erected most likely on Wednesday in the same first-floor rotunda as a nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ put up last week by the Florida Prayer Network. "I still chuckle, I literally can´t believe there will be a pile of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in the state rotunda," said Chaz Stevens, a Deerfield Beach resident who applied to the
The federal health care exchange is incorrectly determining that some people are eligible for Medicaid when they clearly are not, leaving them with little chance to get the subsidized insurance they are entitled to as the Dec. 23 deadline for enrollment approaches. State and industry officials haven´t quantified the problem yet, but the National Association of State Medicaid Directors may release information next week after following up on reports from around the country, says Executive Director Matt Salo. Here´s what happens: When consumers applying for insurance put their income information into subsidy calculators on HealthCare.gov — the exchange handling insurance sales for
HAVANA — Elian Gonzalez, the young Cuban boy who survived a boat sinking and became a political football during the 2000 U.S. presidential campaign as the subject of an international custody fight, is on his first trip overseas since being reunited with his father. Cuban state-run media say Gonzalez is in Ecuador this week as part of a 200-strong delegation to the 23rd World Festival of Youth and Students, which runs through Friday. In a recent interview published on the official website Cubadebate, Gonzalez said living in Cuba afforded him more privacy than if he had stayed in the United
When a former hard-hitting news anchor’s daytime talk show suffers dangerously slipping ratings, what’s the next step? If it’s Katie Couric, the answer is to trade a history of responsible reporting for irresponsible scaremongering. In her segment last week on the HPV vaccine, Couric delivered a blow to both public health and her image. The question now is what Couric – if she’s willing – can do to repair the damage. It’s a sad turn of events for Couric, once known for drawing attention to public health issues such as colon cancer, which killed her husband. The former CBS anchor, soon
If a five-part opus in The New York Times by Andrea Elliott is to believed, we live in a hard-hearted city. But if you read closely, it suggests just the opposite. Begin with the family at the center of this story. The mother, father and eight kids aren’t really homeless at all. True, they live in housing meant for “homeless families.” But their 540-square-foot unit gives them a solid roof over their heads, in addition to city-provided meals and services. One city official tells us Elliott and the Times ignored many key facts about the family and that its situation is “atypical.” “New
President Barack Obama is flying to South Africa Monday morning to join the emotional extravaganza around the graveside of former president Nelson Mandela, leaving Vice President Joe Biden on his lonesome to attend meetings in the empty White House. The president will board U.S. Air Force One to jet around the world to Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa, while Joe stays behind to keep the lights on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Obama is flying away from supposedly high-priority negotiations to prevent another budget shutdown of Uncle Sam’s federal government, and also from the top-priority effort to rebuild his crashed Obamacare program. He’s
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been in the news fairly often of late, and not just in his home state. The Democrat has been the frequent subject of some admittedly long-shot speculation over a 2016 presidential run if Hillary passes on the ticket. (Personally, I would find a Cuomo candidacy hilarious, not to mention good news for the GOP, when he tried to explain to the rest of the nation how he signed the NY Safe Act, one of the most restrictive and odious gun control laws in the nation.) When he was elected Governor of New York, he
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
