Serious question:

Between Miley, Vega, and Walsh which one is the most incompetent; and which one is the most corrupt?

My rankings:

Most incompetent = Miley
Most Corrupt = Walsh

Asshats: All lawyers who take it personally when they lose.

Where I used to practice, win or lose, there was generally a shared beer or two after a big hearing.

Asshats 2: All lawyers who either literally make up case law or facts or choose to have no legal authority in their briefs. Special mention goes to the Judges who make up the law on a case by case basis. Only in Vegas, my friends

The Unsung Heroes of 2010: Those lawyers who quietly, sincerely, and without a financial stake, help the less fortunate.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.

Anonymous said...

TO: Anonymous on 12/24 @ 08:42 am. I'm with you on that one for Unsung Heroes. The world needs more attorneys that bring this kind of attitude to their work, as it is the most unfortunate among us who need access to Justice, and in many instances this is denied, by virtue of one's position in society. Note that I spelled the word justice with a capital "J". After all, that is the real Goal of the Game, at least anywhere else but in Clark County at
the 8th District.

Anonymous said...

If you think so little of Las Vegas "Justice" why don't you either move or do something about it. The beauty of the law is that one person with talent and creativity can make a difference in each case. Apparently, you aren't that person, so rather than seeing your own shortcomings, you just criticize the "8th." I lost a case 2 weeks ago, it was a travesty, but that's because the jury didn't get it. Rather than blame the "8th," I am going to try to be more persuasive in the future. Early in my career, Rex Jemison told me that you never learn as much from a trial you win as from one you lose. He was a great lawyer, and never criticized the Judge, or the "8th," as you call the system. Make a New Year's resolution to work hard and improve the system, or just move to where you think "justice" is more easily attained. Where is that btw?

That is funny Judge Glass ordering someone to take an ethic class. Still has name on law office of Wolfson and Glass.

It's a Shanda, I tell ya. said...

2:29, you fail to pay attention to detail. Thinking is hard, whichis why so many do not even undertake to do so, evidently.

The building you refer to is the "Wolfson and Glass BUILDING."

Not the Wolfson and Glass Law Office. That would be a violation of the Bar rules.

Figler was obviously worried enough about the Show Cause hearing ordered by Judge Glass to have Tom Pitaro go in and argue for him. He lost.

Would love to know why that putz Figler was ordered to Show Cause by Judge Glass, and specifically why he had to take that ethics class.

It was in State v. Aubert.

Anonymous said...

Who gives a fuck what Rex Jemison has to say about anything. Stick you appeals to authority up your butt.

Incompetence Rising said...

Did Dayvid Figler ever complete the ethics course he was required to take?

The minutes also say the matter of Figler was referred to Drew Christensen, who appoints high paying cases to people like Dayvid Figer, who I guess no one would hire with their own money.

That's funny...referring an ethics violation to Drew Christensen. Drew Christensen was a public defender in State v. Hays, the largest case of ineffective lawyering in Nevada history.

Robert Hays spent over 14 years in prison for a crime he did not committ. Drew Christensen did not even argue at all at sentencing. His litany of ineptitude was outline by Judge Roger Hunt in his Order granting the writ of habeas corpus.

So, in the inept 8th, what happens to such a demonstrably inept lawyer like Drew Christensen? He gets the job of deciding which lawyers are effective enough to handle major felony crimes.

That's right...incompetence rising to the top.

Anonymous said...

Dayvid Figler probably relies for all or at least the majority of his criminal cases from inept attorney Drew Christensen, head of the Office of Appointed Counsel.

Anonymous said...

Wolfson and Glass Building, oh yeah that will be crystal clear to the public.

I guess thinking does help get you to to the ethical lines and keep on just this side of ethical violation.

Anonymous said...

Saw an editorial today about Howard Awand's "secret" hearing to hold him in contempt. He has asked that the hearing be public. Doesn't it violate the US Constitution to have a secret trial and put someone in jail when they request a public hearing. The government is using the secret nature of the grand jury as an excuse for a secret proceeding to put him in jail. Can the Judge just ignore the Constitution here?

Rex was right and 5:57 is rather short on the intellect, and not even cleverly profane.

Just reading all of this and it made me burp up yesterday's Christmas turkey. In case anyone needed a refresher on who Kerry Rogers (Cami Perkins boyfriend or ex boyfriend). I dont know about these other antics but I thought everyone knew she was this crook's girlfriend (I mean lawyer). This doesn't belong in the Asshat category but the Assface of the year definitely goes to this guy. In all seriousness shit like this is HILARIOUS!

Heard that Judge Donald Mosley, is "whoring" around again. He and his son are on the make with many "chicks" at the old homestead. Not only is there a revolving door in the house for the "girls" to go in and out, there are different "girls" cars in the driveway. Heard that his staff, laugh about his unprofessional attitude in his chambers and throwing of pencils, tapping on desk, and yelling to his J.E.A. Appears that this OLD JUDGE needs to be replaced. Alzheimer's is sitting in and one day, he won't remember the new chicks name. How could anyone sleep with this judge? He looks like Herman Monster and his house is creepy and his illegitimate son is a juvenile delinquent who continually gets away with crap, and the ex-girlfriend (mother of his son) is a lunatic. Should this type of person, who lacks ethics be a judge? What is wrong with Clark County and its voters? Yes, good OLD Judge Donald M. Mosley, he's a good catch for any fine young lady especially ONE that IS DESPERATE!

What is wrong with our local print media? The abuse of Judge Vega has been reported by CNN, Fox, Above The Law, Jonathan Turley's blog, and dozens of others - but the local coverage of her insane schedule, aside from Channel 8, has been almost nothing. Is the RJ staying away from the story because she's married to a reporter? Is the Sun staying away because they don't want to offend a judge? What the hell.

Anonymous said...

Local media isn't "staying away" from the story, you moron. The Drudge report linked to the channel 8 story. I read the link from "more on judge vega" and I can't believe that anyone would take this garbage seriously. Of course, I can believe that the innocence project would take this case seriously. They are GREAT at fishing expeditions. Especially LOVE the part about the Judge "lying" and being a witness to the "lying" of the district attorneys.

Asshat of the year goes to Hans Sherrer.

Dear 4:15,
Before referring to others as "moron," perhaps you should read a little more carefully. I said "print media" -- Channel 8 is not print media.

Not that Hans guy

My comment that you are a moron stands. Who cares if the local "print" media didn't pick it up. Most people read "print" RJ and Sun on their computer anyway, so it doesn't matter whether its in print or on the computer or on your tv. The channel 8 story, a television piece, was seen by more people on their computer than saw it on the evening news. Catch up with the times, jackass. By the way 4:06 (Hans)the story is still garbage. The 2nd gunman on the grassy knoll story got a lot of media play from a lot of dipshits like yourself. Doesn't mean it has any validity to it. UFO sightings get frequent media as well. Do you believe those stories too? 2 separate juries convicted this road apple Lobado,and it was unanimous (24 - 0). That means 2 separate groups of dumbshits all agreed she did it beyond a reasonable doubt. What, are you trying to get a piece of ass from this lobado whore?

In reference to Mosley, it ISN'T AN ALLEGATION. I overheard it, while waiting outside of his chambers. Quirks are one thing, but demeaning the position of justice in which he represents, is what I call double standards. It would be like: sexual harassment in the form of making decisions about a defendant in his court room, based on the appearance of a hot female attorney representing a client. The bailiff, reports who the hot one's are. Seriously, you needed to be there to hear the unethical judge talk, BEFORE he want on the bench.

Don't get pissed off because Mosley and his son tag teamed your mom. I heard she swallowed like a champ then came home and gave you a big kiss on the lips before tucking you into bed and then headed back for seconds.
