In the South Carolina federal Court the Estate has filed it’s Reply to Susan M. Brown’s Response in which she states L. Lin Wood charges to much!!! I personally think it was reasonable especially if you look at some filings against attorneys in other venues for Sanctions and Contempt. Which then begs to ask, how much is Brown’s time worth and/or billed to clients?
Jury selection is scheduled to began on January 13, 2011 in South Carolina but I just don’t see this going to trial but rather Brown’s insurance paying and getting damage control under way to restore Brown’s reputation.
Bringing up Brown’s reputation, I am sure most of you read in my 2010 deposition in the Texas case where I was told by a representative for Susan M. Brown, that she was going to sue this site and ME for damaging her professional reputation. I have been very hesitant to write anything about Brown following that. Believe me three plus years of being tangled up in lawsuits with people you have never met, is enough for a life time. That said, if Brown is going to put herself out there with having an Order by a Court to Sanction her for Contempt, then do we have an obligation to cover it as we do all things Anna Nicole Smith? I personally don’t believe this site has ever published anything harmful, [unless you consider the truth harmful], to any of the people in this saga of overlapping jurisdictions and lawsuits. We have stated over and over we know NONE of these people, have little to no contact with these people directly and we have learned to ask both sides for comments on the record.
The rule of thumb here is going to be would I cover the lawyers I “like” if they were brought up on Sanctions and for Contempt, the answer is YES, therefore we are going to cover this using the same criteria as we would if it was say, Wood.
Should Susan M. Brown be worried about what a small time blogger has to say about her? Shouldn’t she be more concerned about her career and trying to restore her reputation as an ethical attorney? IF there is a Georgia State Bar Complaint against her we will never know that, but I would bet money with what two federal courts have said about her in Opinions she is being investigated and if not then the State Bar of Georgia has seriously dropped the ball on Brown.
Here are the latest filings in the Anna Nicole Smith Estate through the Executor, Howard K. Stern’s vs. Susan M. Brown, attorney, and others in recovering Estate property.
I think we can see the writing on the wall as soon as L. Lin Wood moved on to other cases and let Luke Lantta and Nicole Jennings Wade finished up this last major lawsuit involving Smith’s Estate .
November 11, 2010 Susan M Brown’s Notice of filing Affidavit as the Court ordered her to do.
November 11, 2010 Susan M. Brown’s Affidavit stating that none of the Estate’s property or any copies are in her procession. It details the actions she took to double check everything.
December 9, 2010 Susan M. Brown’s Response to Howard K . Stern’s bill as the Executor of the Estate of Anna Nicole Smith. Brown complains about how much money the Estate attorneys charged. Brown asks for a 25% reduction on the bill for $14,000+ but then goes on to really ask for a 50% reduction and that is based on what ? That Wood and team are better attorneys then Brown but still does not deserve to be paid for their work on the level of Wood’s abilities for his clients?… Yea that is going to fly, NOT!!!
December 20, 2010, L. Lin Wood’s Reply on behalf of the Estate of Anna Nicole Smith that basically says, oh Really, want to see the emails? Yeppers everyone keeps emails now especially lawyers trying to reach an agreement on anything, even something as simple as filing a joint status report the Court asks for.
With all of this said, I do hope we get to follow some of these attorneys who do defamation suits on high profile cases like L. Lin Wood and Jackson Walker over the years to come, both of them are the tops in the country and usually on opposing sides.
When I mentioned “All things relating to Michael Jackson, to Ken his first statement was “Rose your health can’t handle being pulled into any more legal wrangling”. Yes but we have great guest writers and what is pulling a few legal papers was my response to him. .
We are going to attempt to have someone in the court on January 6, 2011 for the judges ruling on pending motions filed by Steve Sadow and Brad Brunon to reduce the charges or for a new trial and of course for any sentencing the Court imposes on Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and/or Howard K. Stern.
