Will ACORN Shoot Itself in the Foot?

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 15:28

One lawyer thinks maybe yes. He lays out five reasons why, then summarizes:

In short, Learned Hand once said that he feared a lawsuit more than death or taxes. With good lawyering from the defendants (which I’m sure their (sic) going to get), ACORN is about to find out what Hand meant. ACORN has very little to gain and a lot to lose.


This lawyer points out that the open conference room door, plus the presence of the ACORN droid’s pen and paper, means the Maryland statute wasn’t violated in any case and says the sute should be “summarily dismissed and ACORN should cease its dishonorable recrimination.”

Yeah, but… Not before discovery, please!
