The best part's the E-Mail he sent to the spa manager.

"WHAT THE FARK IS GOING ON?...How would you like to explain there has been no yogurt for two (2) weeks and now no cereal. When does the coffee run out?"

I was just about to quote that in this thread.

Seriously, man, calm the f*ck down.

I could maybe see someone getting that justifiably upset if, for example, he had very special dietary needs that the spa promised to provide for, and then they screwed him, but short of that...damn.

Karben told the Daily News that the judge told Katz at a hearing "he should be ashamed of himself" for filing the suit.

Next up - suing the judge for libel for his statement in open court.

OK Fark lawyers - I've always wondered about these things. Will this guy see any repercussions professionally for this? Will the partners at his firm see him as "that asshole" and he loses so much standing at his firm that eventually he ends up practicing out of a storefront somewhere in Bozeman or something? Or will his boss see this as "a real go-getter" who gets things done?

As near as I can tell from looking him up, he's a solo personal injury lawyer (there's a shock). And, basically, if the court had found the suit completely frivolous, she could have sanctioned him, and perhaps referred the matter to the bar. It looks like the New York tabloids are having a field day with him, as well as some of the legal blogs, e.g "Above the Law." Guys like him don't care what this looks like, though. They tend to be fairly narcissistic. He's probably convinced the judge just didn't like him.

Usually, things said in open court are immune from defamation claims. Otherwise, you might have witnesses not telling the full story because they're worried about getting sued.

Presumably, the state of NY would allow him to appeal the judgment, which would just make him look even more like a dumbass.

I wonder if the spa's attorney(s) asked for sanctions. They should have; if this isn't a frivolous lawsuit, I don't know what is.

Solo personal injury - yeah. Shocker there, for sure. You're right, of course - he's probably convinced the judge doesn't like him, or "has a problem with men" or something.

Yep. I knew a guy like this once. Believed he could talk his way into or out of anything. Was charming as hell until you got to know him. He got fired from his jobs (pretty damn good ones too) every six months to a year because his boss either "didn't like him" or was "too stupid to realize how valuable he was". He ended up alienating all of his friends and last I heard was living with TWO women he was sleeping with, because, hey, he's just that awesome. Helped that one of them (at least) was just as emotionally damaged as he was. Sadly, I don't know how that turned out as by that point I'd had more than enough of him to last a lifetime. But it doesn't matter, cause he'll have a new job/woman/friends/whatever right away because he's charming as fark. And he'll lose them all again because of problems with THEM not with him, of course, because he's awesome.

/Pretty sure he is deep down the most insecure guy in the world.

I think most firms (law or other) would view this public idiocy as "bringing discredit upon the firm" and yes, that's an excellent reason to fire someone.

That doesn't stop loons from suing judges for defamation all the time, it just means the cases get thrown out and ordered to pay all legal costs, which then generates another lawsuit... of course, this guy has to decide if his law license is worth his quest to become a sovereign citizen, if he's going to go that route.

miniflea: /Pretty sure he is deep down the most insecure guy in the world.


Psychopaths and narcissists aren't necessarily insecure, sometimes they're just literally unaware that anyone else in the world matters. Pure psychopaths use that to take advantage of everyone they meet on their way up and down, but the narcissistic ones are too stuck in their own little bubble to see up or down. They just float along by amusing and abusing everyone as their whims turn.
