Now that Bill Schmalfeldt paid attention to the docket in the case he has brought against several people and found the name of the lawyer who has signed on to represent WJJ Hoge in the suit, he’s doing his usual thing.
And by usual, I mean writing a blog post that shows how utterly clueless about the whole thing he is.
First he strikes where he thinks the iron is hot – that Mr. Nettles, Esq. is in the suit pro bono. And that when HE, Bill Schmalfeldt has had a free lawyer, he was ridiculed for a “welfare” lawyer.
Oh, Bill Schmalfeldt. Oh, how you missed the point. You see, Mr. Nettles volunteered to defend John against you. You, on the other hand, were provided a free lawyer that the taxpayers of the good State of Illinois – one that you didn’t live in by the way – paid for.
You will find there is no wiggle room for semantics here. Welfare is paid for by the taxpayers. Which is what you got. John got someone willing to represent him for free. No taxpayer money was spent on him. Hence, no welfare.
Strike one. Shall we try again?
Ah yes! AVVO! Bill’s favorite place to find legal advice.
The problem with AVVO is not that people go there for advice. The advice can be very good. The problem is that Bill Schmalfeldt has a tendency to leave things out when he asks questions on AVVO. Questions that those giving the advice really really need in order to provide good advice. The problem is with the user of the service, not the lawyers.
So, two strikes. Is there a third for the out?
Oh, but of course there is.
Lots of lawyers recommend settlement. Bill’s last lawyer recommended dismissing the case. Besides, our PACER review of Bill Schmalfeldt’s performance in front of ANY judge indicates a strong propensity to FAIL.
Time to start placing bets on when this suit gets dismissed, because let me tell you, this blog post shows the fear pee is already beginning to flow.
Stock up on popcorn. You’re gonna need it!
