There has been much talk in the news recently about judges who supposedly should recuse themselves. Donald Trump, the serial litigator, has asked every judge in his criminal cases, except one, to recuse themselves. But, his motions have generally been based on pretty specious grounds. What are good, solid grounds for recusal? We get a

Where do we file suits? Generally, we file lawsuits in the county or locale where the dispute arose. In some lawsuits, the proper location is murky. in Farrera v. Travis County Attorney’s Office, No. 23-CV-01406 (W.D. Tex. 2/14/2024), John Ferrara was arrested in San Antonio. He had posted some blog posts criticizing the City

Bar association investigators contacted Lawyer David J. Kurzawa for information about a grievance filed against him. He told them he was too busy fishing

A U.S. District Court in Illinois has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a small Illinois law firm. The small firm sued DoNotPay, an online site that provides contracts, offers legal advice for appealing traffic tickets and procedures for property tax appeals.

Apparently, Me. Trump decided to attend his civil fraud trial in New York when

Donald Trump and his family are on trial for allegedly defrauding banks and businesses. Judge Engoron has already granted summary judgment against the Trumps. That means he has ruled there is no genuine issue f fact such that a jury is needed. The only remaining issue is damages.

Mr. Trump was upset that there was

Once again, Trump lawyers give us a master class in how not to litigate. Donald Trump was sued in New York civil district court for civil fraud. Attorney General James claimed the Trumps perpetrated fraud among lenders when they vastly overstated the value of their holdings. A couple of days ago, the judge presiding over
