This sounds like a plot line from Arrested Development.

What is it with people hiring TV lawyers over actual legal professionals?

I was ticketed for Jaywalking. My lawyer, Rudy, got it down to 1st degree murder and I am now on death row. Thanks, Rudy!

A lawyer for David Correia said in a submission to a judge Monday that his client is a changed man no longer likely to be lured into wrongdoing by greed-driven accomplices.

Alrighty then, you may go.

To be fair, this guy wasn't taking on any new cases...

A guy who hired Rudy to lend credibility to his business is obviously going for an insanity defense.

I was just hearing about how about a quarter of the unemployment dollars that were supposed to help out gig workers, actually went to fraud rings here and in other countries.

I couldn't get it at all, they made the conditions so onerous. God bless America, country of thieves.

/Oh sorry, that's just your beloved capitalism. Anything goes, if it works out for you.

Wasn't the money these guys paid Giuliani with given to Lev Parnas by "Ukrainian Oligarch" Dmytro Firtash?

a fraud-busting company that was a fraud itself

So, the McAfee business model, basically?

If they want to get anything done, you hire a professional.  If you want to keep the grift alive, you hire well known brands.

If he is white and has money then the "changed man" defense actually might work.

Giuliani's back? How? I could have sworn we all saw him melt on live TV.

Is he aware of Rudy's $20k per day going rate?

It's cool. You only pay if you win.

Unfortunately for him, the same advice doesn't not apply to fraud lawyers.

I was expecting this guy:

He said he's (his client) needed at home in West Palm Beach, Florida, to take care of his wife and young children.

Well, haven't a lot of jailed Americans said that same thing and still remained in jail?

Indeed. I noticed the family man plea for mercy too. That troubles me all the more. Most people become better behaved with a family as they have responsibilities to others besides themselves--and are then role models. That someone like this isn't responsible tells me he's incorrigible. Todd only knows what he teaches the children.

stuffy: He hired Giuliani for credibility?


I think the assumption is that by standing next to Giuliani, he'll look more credible by comparison. Except that doesn't work when you've willingly hired Giuliani to act as your representative. Even Baldrick would spot the flaws in this particular cunning plan.

Correia and Parnas agreed to pay Giuliani, a Republican former New York City mayor, a $500,000 consulting fee to work with Fraud Guarantee.

What?  Who pays him half a million for Giuliani.  Maybe it's a grift where the guy gets a kickback out of the failing compnay.

Is this one of his kids?

"Fraud Guarantee".  Sounds like they were completely up front with their clients, I don't see the problem.

"...he's so changed his ways that even his wife recognized it and ended their separation."

Translation: His wife is so sure he's going to prison that she moved back into the house. That place will be cleaned out right before he gets released.

I wonder what political affiliation he has - perhaps the Party of Personal Responsibility?

The fraud was guaranteed. Unlike his safety. Bring your own weapons.
