Yeah, sure, they all come here because they want to defend a Porn Star's lawyer against you. Sure. Ok. Whatever you want to tell yourself.

To tell you how silly this argument is, Avenatti in his ex parte application repeatedly calls himself "defendant" and the other side "plaintiff."
Avenatti describes himself as a defendant in the Bechard suit, which he apparently is. He is the plaintiff in the ex parte application because he initiated it.
The argument that a person can be a defendant in one legal action and a plaintiff in another one is not, on the face of it, ridiculous. On the contrary, it's an obvious fact.

Say, just for more giggles, what is Sarah Bechard in the ex parte application, hmmm?
I don't think Bechard has any role in the application.

Say, folks get ready to post all the laughing dogs.

(Dream thread)
Does anybody else have a problem with the idea that Avenatti can be a defendant in one legal action and a plaintiff in another? I think you're rather special in that regard.

"He is the plaintiff in the ex parte application because he initiated it."

Lol, an ex parte application is simply a motion in a pending action on shortened notice. here, some law! http://www.courts.ca.gov/cms/rules/i...kid=rule3_1204

"I don't think Bechard has any role in the application."

Bwhahaha! I am surprised the legal beagle eagles who populate this forum are letting you twist in the wind with this nonsense

Cohen was taken aback by Avenatti approaching him while eating.

Avenatti did not have permission to speak to Cohen.

Cohen’s lawyer said that Avenatti breached rule 2-100 and intends to bring Avenatti’s unethical conduct to the attention of the judge.

Man, Thirsty is a scumbag.

But you already knew that by reading my posts and explanations. God damn, tbd you are so *********** good.

I knew that from reading the news. He should obviously be held responsible for whatever wrongdoing he did. That's the law.

That ISNT breaking the law. It might be a BAR violation at best. And unlikely to produce more than a scolding. Its more about protecting clients from poaching than anything else.

Sneering hypocrite Michael Avenatti is trying to get a federal judge in Orange County to bar the news media from covering his testimony this morning on his law firm’s bankruptcy.

Which was a legal action, initiated by Avenatti, who was therefore the plaintiff.

I think it was between Avenatti and the court, which sealed the Bechard case. Avenatti argued that the court was wrong in granting the seal : the court found otherwise.


You presumably have your understanding of the matter and Bechard's role in it. Feel free to share.

No an ex parte application is a motion, but I enjoyed the fact that you ignored the rules of court I cited.

Bechard is the plaintiff who asked that her case be sealed. Thirsty is a defendant who filed a motion in the action in which she was the plaintiff and he was the defendant. Filing a motion does not make him a plaintiff, although I appreciate your dogged insistence in being totally wrong!

Contemptible hypocrite Michael Avenatti who has been braying for months that all of his targets should "come clean" convinces a Federal Court judge to close the hearing in which he testified regarding his firm's bankruptcy.

"Michael Avenatti gets judge to bar media from his testimony on Newport Beach law firm's bankruptcy"

Quote:
Frank has alleged that Eagan Avenatti cheated him out of millions of dollars in pay, a charge that Avenatti denies.

The firm has defaulted on more than $880,000 in federal payroll taxes, penalties and interest that Avenatti had promised to pay. The Internal Revenue Service asked Bauer to hold the firm in contempt of court, but set aside the request Wednesday after reaching a deal for payment, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles.

“Your honor, the payroll taxes need to be paid as soon as possible,” Assistant U.S. Atty. Najah Shariff told Bauer shortly before Avenatti began testifying behind closed doors in a courthouse conference room.

‘They want to embarrass me,’ Avenatti says in demanding media be barred from his testimony on his law firm’s bankruptcy.

Remember, this is the same shyster who released Cohen's stolen bank records.

According to a court reporter in the courthouse, she saw Avenatti tweeting about getting to the bottom of Stormy's arrest right after his lawyers had just asked the court to kick out the media and seal his transcript.

What a maroon.

Having never tweeted, how does tweeting appear different that texting (for example)? Was the court reporter looking over his shoulder?

It's not that I object to his post. It's that I am bored by it. Avenatti isn't POTUS. He isnt really accountable to the rest of us like a government official should be. That he wants to keep his affairs private and by that I mean 'legal' affairs, not the latest porn star he's banging is understandable.

TBD only is trying to shoot the messenger in his quest to smear Avenatti. I'm watching him make post after post about Avenatti questionable ethics quite amused since they pale in comparison to his hero. Does he really think we should care about Avenatti's bankruptcy? I am not one of his creditors. The day Avenatti leaves bus boys, waiters and small businesses holding the bag like Trump did multiple times, then I might care a little. Until then, yawn.

Avenatti gets his lawyers to close a public court room....

several hours later he tweets this:

Quote:
We are demanding a copy of the recording be immediately provided and we would also like to know the full extent of the relationship between Mr. Cuomo and Mr. Cohen. Are they close friends? Was this disclosed?
Who the **** is this clown kidding? He has no standing to make any demand and is a hypocritical disgrace.

Why do you think he is kidding? Avenatti is clearly trying to expose a corrupt public official.

Its not hypocritical at all.

But nice try.

T'ain't what happened. What happened is that you were obsessing on Avenatti so much that we weren't getting any information on the principals in the Stormy Daniels, Trump, Cohen suit and counter-suit.

Out of consideration for your condition (bless his heart, he just can't help himself) and to avoid having every third post of yours removed to AAH, someone suggested a separate "Ain't Avenatti A Toenail Cheese Sniffing Scumbag" thread.

It wasn't about Trump, Trump, Trump but about on-topic, on-topic, on-topic.

Avenatti currently on Twitter:
Breaking: Donald Trump conspired with Michael Cohen to pay off multiple other women prior to Election Day in 2016. They were also concerned about a pregnancy. Cohen has evidence and info in his possession and it must be released to the public. Now! #Basta

Breaking: Oh "must" it? That is adorable. His cases against Cohen are stayed, so exactly who is he kidding.

It is just a stunt designed to cover up the fact that his lawyers convinced a judge to prevent the press from reporting on his defalcations.

I don't think so.

Its not like he Avenatti hasnt been trying to get Trump and Cohen to come clean since he first appeared on CNN. So you're argument that him continuing to do so is merely a distraction is absurd. He would be doing this either way.

What would you have to be embarrassed about, Thirsty? After all, one can only embarrass oneself.

Of course, thirsty didn't seem to concerned with 'embarrassing" others when he released purloined documents of men named Michael Cohen who had never in their lives met Donald trump or anyone associated with him.

Poor thirsty.

The LA Times and other media outlets are pressing for the release of the transcript and tapes of the hearing (which of course should have been done in open court in the first place)

Recall that this whole bankruptcy mess started with a very shady involuntary bankruptcy filing in Florida, that one can be sure thirsty did not at all completely orchestrate.

Lets get these spread wide: #releasetheBKtapes!

I especially like the substitution of "45" for a syllable commonly pronounced as "ass".

Very appropriate, in a possibly unintentional sort of way.

Generally referring to the people who are desperately ignoring the facts I am bringing to this thread and want to talk about anything but the fact that Avenatti is a scumbag.
