So, here's the thing: lawyers don't usually quit because their client has a bad case.  Bad cases are why lawyers exist.

This likely means one of a few things, roughly in order of likelihood: 1) she's not paying her bills.  2) She's not listening to her lawyer's advice, or effectively communicating with him.  Or 3) he has come to think that Reade has, or is going to, user his advice to commit a crime, to lie in sworn testimony, or to perpetrate some other fraud.  Lawyers will fix your past crimes, no problem.  But absolutely want to hear/say/do nothing involving potential future crimes.

I worked for a lawyer who dropped several clients for 1 or 2. And I would add a 4th reason to fire a client: they insult or degrade your professionalism. Hooo boy! That was a fun one!

More coverage at the NY Times, CNBC, and elsewhere.

There's three reasons I can think of off the top of my head for why a lawyer might drop a client. The first is "the client stops paying their bills"; however, several of the other links indicate that the work was being done pro bono, and that he had not expected payment - ruling that one out. The second is at the request of the client, usually when they have found other counsel. The statement makes no mention of such, nor has other counsel been identified yet that I see.The third obvious one is that the lawyer discovers that their client intends perjury or other fraud on a court.

Actual lawyers might remind me if there are other reasons for dropping representing a client, and express how common those are relative to the others.

Well, the timing of the news that her degree from Antioch might not actually exist and that she may have farked up prosecutions of domestic violence because she misrepresented herself to be an "expert witness" might have something to do with it, though he says, lawyerly, no.

Here's my totally made up scenario.

1. She was at best a below-average staffer for Senator Biden who got there by lying about her academic record
2. She got fired or politely ushered out
3. She harbors resentment
4. She's now angry that she missed her chance to work for the next President (potentially)
5. She hauls out sexual assault as revenge / sour grapes
6. Her lawyer finds out that she has no trouble committing perjury
7. He says, "Fark it, I'm outta here."

Given we're talking about someone who appears to be working to re-elect Trump it's very possible she's doing all three.

His name is Doug Wigdor. He was doing this pro-bono. His brand is to be white knight for #MeToo accusers. He represented her for two weeks and then dropped her now - when the expert witness shiat is just hitting the fan.

I wonder why...?

Wouldn't surprise me. She is all about the grift, based on interviews with other people who've had interactions with her.

Not a lawyer, but I think those only attach when there's an actual legal case filed and active, which I'm unsure of in Reade's case.

The ironic part is that this entire effort is likely to backfire spectacularly as people tend to sympathize when it's obvious that somebody is getting smeared. The double-ironic part is that it's likely going to magnify the actual many legitimate sexual assault cases against Dotard.

Maybe. Or perhaps he (now) recognizes a brand-destroying shiatshow when he sees one.

Just like lawyers knowing the answer to the questions they ask in court, sounds like this Wigdor fella knows there's no case of any kind, and Reade's credibility is about as reliable as her story.

I don't see this as the plaintiff being victim-shamed or put on trial in the court of public opinon; it sounds like some operatives found someone willing to make such an accusation, but didn't vet her very well.

Now, which party keeps forgetting to vet people?

TIMES UP met with her before this lawyer, and they not only refused to represent her, they took the unprecedented step of publicly distancing themselves from her.
Considering TIMES UP is a group of #MeToo lawyers specifically formed to hold men in powerful positions to account for sexual harassment, the fact they would not touch this is significant.
When even the people who coined #BelieveWomen don't believe you, its time to go home.

The longer this goes on, the more it appears that Tara Reade is almost certainly lying.  However, Biden does have an issue with respecting women's autonomy and personal space, and we shouldn't pretend that isn't the case just because one asshole wanted her 15 minutes.  The best solution would have been to pick someone else as a candidate (hypothetically, we still could at the convention, but it'd be its own clusterfark to do so), but he's what we've got now to face Trump, so we're stuck with him.  He better be ready to deal with this stuff again in the general, because Republicans have every reason to bring it up and hammer him with it.  Hypocrisy is irrelevant.

Cuz, man, if anyone asks for the three most honest individuals, most people will tell you a landlord, a lawyer, and a politician.

Just admit you refuse to believe a woman because your loyalty to Blue Team is greater than your respect for women.

I just want to say I'm better than all of you. I'm better than everyone who abandoned this woman sooner than I did. I'm better than everyone who stupidly bought into her crap for a second longer than I did.

I'm just going to assume everyone falls into one group or the other. You are all sexists or hypocrites, sheeple or Russian plants.

If you smart this post then you are an exception and can join me in backpats. That is all.
