High level lawyer here, if DC chooses to sue he can easily put the UFC and JJ bankrupt.

    Did he totally besmirch you and slander you in front of a jury of your peers?

    I worked with an orthopedic surgeon who went to UAG (Universidad Autonoma Guadalajara) and has been practicing in the United States for a few decades now. He isn't Mexican either he's a white guy from Fresno.

    Seems kind of dumb to sue your employer but what do I know.

    To me, it seems pretty open and shut that the UFC has done everything possible by implementing drug testing that is the most advanced for any sport out there, including Olympic sports. So you're pretty much saying that if the UFC loses that law suit that any promoter who has someone who fails a drug test will lose that case. It just doesn't seem reasonable.

    I agree if you attended an "elite law school" (as I did) your goal was probably not to handle soft tissue car wreck cases. Likely you dreamed of politics, the USC, states attorneys, judgeship, and failing that, go for the money, the incredibly long billable hours, and work for an "elite firm."

    The reality is that number of graduates from Harvard, Yale, Stanford, NYU, Cornell, Berkeley, UC and Northwestern are greatly outnumbered by the graduates of the 200 other ABA accredited law schools. There are only 9 spaces on the Supreme Court and only so many jobs at Cravath. 99 percent of Americans will not need a lawyer from Wachtell or Skadden or Sidley, just a few large corporations. As for as metric's for elite go, not that long ago Wachtell was looked down on by the silk stocking firms because (1) they were Jews and (2) they handled litigation. Amazing how times have changed.

    As I've grown older, I've learned not to view the world as a hierarchy. I personally left an elite law firm to work somewhere smaller with more rewarding work. I've never looked down on PI. Interestingly, some would probably view criminal defense, bankruptcy, divorce, wills, real estate closings and public defense as "lower" than PI. To each their own.

    Thats something I like but also dislike about DC. Hes nice but I feel hes too nice at the wrong times. Hes been very lenient and forgiving of Jones when he definitely did not have to be. He had a ton of ammo that he couldve but just didnt use. And I also dont expect him to sue when he really actually should.

    Would you take the case on a contingent fee basis?

    DC is a kiss ass.

    He wont sue.
    And it wouldn't be wise of him to sue the ufc.

    WE can only question why... and I think we know why, it comes back to what one of the Diaz brothers said.

    Yeah I don't really disagree with you there. Like so many things in life, perceived prestige quickly looks empty after you've been living it awhile.

    Which state big dog?

    You on the plaintiff or defense side? Do you guys deal with more mediation or actual litigation?

    You can't sue in a civil case for the charges you are listing outside of negligence. But I'm sure you already knew that.... [​IMG]

    I didn't know high level lawyers made promises like that these days. Usually big swinging dicks know that a big corporation will settle and they play that game.

    Oh and Hunt's case is significantly better. He can argue that the UFC, his employers, allowed Brock Lesnar to fight knowing there was a very good chance he was cheating.

    What kind of settlement numbers you guys pulling in these days? If you're defense what rate do you bill your time at while posting on sherdog?
