CLEARED!!! and ELECTED!!!!!
Many of us know the problem: We have a client who is difficult, perhaps obstreperous, and doesn't always do what we want them to do.
So congratulations go out to Brian Tannebaum for his victory over the Florida Bar.
Word reaches us today here in the frozen north, where they are also having a senate election, that Tannebaum was the victor over the Florida Bar in their relentless and continuing prosecution/persecution of defense attorney and courthouse legend Alexander Michaels.
Congratulations to Alex and Brian.
Sorry for the delay today but the craziness over the senate election here has crashed the internet in the hotel we are staying in.
BROWN BEATS COKLEY!!!!
The latest news as of 9:40 pm tonight is that Republican Scott Brown has pulled off the miracle upset and beaten Democrat Martha Coakley in the election to replace the seat liberal Senator Ted Kennedy held for the past 49 years.
A Republican Senator from Massachusetts. Who would have ever believed that was possible?
Query: When was the last time a Republican held a senate seat from Massachusetts?
Of course the larger issue here is that the Democrats have just lost their 60 seat filibuster proof majority. Under Massachusetts law Brown cannot be seated before January 29, 2010. So the question is : does the Obama Administration jam through the health care plan before Brown can stop it, or does the President accept the will of the people of Massachusetts who well knew that a Brown victory could stop health care reform?
