I Have a Free Lawyer, Can I Spend My Own Money?

Bill Schmalfeldt has promised to publish a letter which he has sent to John Hoge’s attorney about Schmalfeldt’s Lolsuit. Actually, Mr. Nettles represents all of the defendants in the case, including Sarah of BillySez. Follow the links for great discussions of the email.

Here’s Bill’s Tweet promising to publish the email:

Sorry. Wrong Tweet.

Here’s the thing. Mr. Nettles is working pro bono, which is Latin for “this one’s on me.” John Hoge has not claimed to be a pauper, and neither have the other litigants…but I’m sure hiring a lawyer would be a hardship. I don’t know why Mr. Nettles has stepped up and agreed to this, but it is a good thing.

When Bill Schmalfeldt temporarily had a free attorney, it was because he claimed to be a pauper. He has also convinced a court to waive fees, based upon his financial situation.

Bill Schmalfeldt is complaining because John Hoge is apparently prepared to spend thousands of dollars of his own money to obtain court transcripts and file an appeal of the Hoge v Kimberlin case, which was recently decided.  

There is a logical difference between the two situations. I look forward to reading Schmalfeldt’s justification for contacting John’s lawyer, but I’m simply worried.

Is it even possible for a pro bono attorney involved in litigation to obtain a Restraining Order on an opposing pro se litigant?

And do Lulz muscles wear out?

We’re really going to miss David Edgren around here.

    You forgot to say my name three times.

    I’m cycling along the Mississippi River south of La Crosse, Wiaconsin today, about 650 miles/1,050 kilometers into my trip. Haven’t seen or thought about an Oaf in weeks. Life is good.

    Good luck, God bless, and it looks like the winds will be low humidity, and at your back!

    I suspect we’re both glad you aren’t doing an East Coast tour.\\

    Don’t try an East Coast tour in winter either; Brazilian server or no, Sandy was a bitch, while also (like Bill) being a mewling pussy.

    Actually, according to most sources pro bono is understood to be short for pro bono publico which translates as “for the public good.”

    So what it says is that Mr. Nettles believes it is a service in the public good to oppose the lawfare of Bill Schmalfeldt. And the converse fact that Bill Schmalfeldt has in all of his previous lawsuits FAILED to attract a pro bono advocate to his cause (except for midget pretendylawyers) may not prove but certainly provides compelling evidence that no one believe his cause does anything to advance the public good.

    How could any reasonable person think differently?

      , he did not. And I suspect he won’t because he never sent it. Bill is, at his core, a coward. He knows sending something that patently stupid would have a negative outcome for him. So, again, he won’t post it because he was too afraid to send it.
