Bad Lawyering Costs Allred the Spotlight
According to our friend William A. Jacobson, Gloria Allred blew her opportunity to enjoy a press conference with her bitter, Mormon-hating client by not filing the correct motions with a Boston court:
Reports from inside the courtroom in Boston at which The Boston Globe is seeking access to Mitt Romney’s testimony in the divorce case of the founder of Staples indicate that the Judge will authorize the release of the transcript to The Globe, but will not lift the gag order on the parties to the divorce, including Gloria Allred’s Mormon-hating client, Maureen Sullivan.
Presumably that means that the Mormon-hating client’s representative also cannot speak on behalf of her Mormon-hating client to put the “context” on it.
It will be up to The Globe and other media to spin the transcript against Romney, which they certainly will do, but Allred will not be at the center of that circus.
Jacobson also reports that Mitt Romney's attorney does not object to the release of the transcript. Unlike Obama and his college and passport records, Romney has nothing to hide.
Here's our report on Ms. Allred's client. Shame we won't see her breaking down crying in front of the cameras this afternoon.
I suppose Allred still has time to try again, but right now she's blown it for her client bigtime.
