Early Withdrawal?

Dec 13, 2012

Apparently, Hausfeld LLP has formally filed to withdraw from representing SOME of the lead plaintiffs in a class but he still wants to stay directly involved by representing the other plaintiffs (can you actually do that?!!). Then the presiding judge issued a Scheduling Order that appoints Dan Gustafson of Gustafson Gluek PLLC as Lead Settlement Counsel to represent the “class” without a further hearing or discussion. So if there is a class of retired football players being acknowledged, then why is there a gag order? Does this mean that your case can be settled without your approval?

    The Hausfeld saga never ceases to amaze me.

    My first contact with the man occurred when he paraded me around at his dog-and-pony show in Washington D.C. This was prior to filing the case he “plagarized” from Jason Luckasevic. Even with my NFL-damaged short-term memory, I can still hear Hausfeld saying, “Because it’s the right thing to do!” Reminiscent of Ol’ Johnny Boy, “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

    The best part of the show was my name had not even beeen included on the lawsuit! He probably figured my airfare was all it was worth to get people’s attention at the press conference when I pulled out my handy-dandy “brain drain” kit I’m forced to carry when traveling, in case my shunt blows out while in the field somewhere.

    While I realize I have cognitive problems, I wasn’t aware an attorney could “fire” his clients. He seems to be cherry-picking which ones he’ll fulfill his obligation to represent. It must be getting easier to pick though, as his pool of “clients” gets shallower by the day.

    It’s all about integrity which is why I totally back Jason Luckasevic and Bob Stein.

    I should be concerned with him coming after me for libel but luckily, due to my NFL-caused brain injuries, I no longer own anything of value. Unless he needs a 2003 Dodge pickup with 286,000 miles on it.

    It will be interesting to see how many more of his “clients” bail.
