Skip to comments.LIVE reporting from Gloria Allred's Court Action in Canton MA
Posted on 10/24/2012 6:32:42 AM PDT by icwhatudo
Gloria Allred & client arrive in Canton MA
Client is Maureen Stemberg Sullivan, ex-wife of Staples founder Tom Stemberg.
Allred & Boston Globe are moving to remove gag order on Stemberg Sullivan, and release Mitt Romney testimony.
Outside court Allred said she could only characterize the testimony as “related to Romney’s conduct and interaction w/ the Stembergs”
Atty for Stemberg arguing that this hearing should be closed.
This sounds like how Obama has “won” elections in the past.
I KNEW when I woke up this morning I smelled a hint of desperation. Mind you I’m hundreds of miles from MA so it carried a long way.
About 40 people in courtroom, most flagrantly violating bailiff’s order to shut off cel phones and other electronic devices.
Trump should know better......but he’s got about 6-8 minutes before RUSH hits the airwaves. ;)
“please buy my book”
Gloria is vile disgusting pig.
He is armed; they are stupid
haha he might have planned it out nicely timing wise....fully expecting it to be a nothing story, but you never know....
Isn’t Maureen Stemberg a “contributor” to Huffington Post who has made many anti-Mormon and other senseless comments? I believe I saw that here yesterday. If that is the case, this is a ridiculous conflict of interest. At least we’re going to find out something about the character of this judge soon enough.
If Allred quickly gets her way today, we’re going to know what’s really going on here. She should have gone into court through a revolving door and come right back out the other side after being told to get lost. So why don’t I think that is what is going to happen?
And it won’t make any difference anyway. People have set their minds and whatever happens won’t change a thing.
Allred is all done.................
BFD, he testified in a divorce case.
Unless Romney testified that he was having an affair with the husband, it’s a big nothing.
This circus is precisely why most non-lawyers treat the entire legal profession with the same respect reserved for child molesters.
Digging up a 3rd party’s divorce, to look for comments on Romney. Classless
this is very likely to FAIL and wind up blowing back on Obama.
“BFD, he testified in a divorce case.
Unless Romney testified that he was having an affair with the husband, its a big nothing.”
What if this woman lies and says that IS what happened? We can’t put or anything else past these people. She can lie and say anything she wants to say. That can hurt us with less than two weeks to go. These people will stop at nothing.
Not going to work this time.
You are being too kind to her.
Yeah, Romney testified at the husband’s child custody hearing.
Just as I thought. Romney provided expert testimony on a business valuation. It happens in every single divorce case where one party is the sole or part owner of a closely held business. The wife certainly had her own expert also testifying on the same subject. Such testimony consists of balance sheets, pro-formas and past and anticipated earnings. Unless you are an accountant (or one of the parties) it’s the most boring stuff you can imagine. This is a nothingburger.
Oh Noes this is the End!
MSM spinning this should be rich.
With most Americans either having gone through divorce themselves or KNEW someone who has, this too shall past.
These folks are simply desperate, KNOWING it is OVER for them.
What MSM hacks are covering this on the ground?
That’s a BIG 10-4!
On a side note, hope FR gets the bugs out of the pipes before election night! Wondering if they are getting some leftwing DOS attacks.
Why is gloria wearing a mop on head?????????
Gloria Allred, the “Larry Flint” of the feminist movement.
The above quote from Romney's attorney bears repeating.
If she had not already, ole Gloria certainly has jumped the shark on this one.
“What MSM hacks are covering this on the ground?”
Is Nancy Grace there so that she can report “Bombshell Tonight....”
I think the angle will be that the Staples guy was a real jerk, Romney helped the guy, therefore Romney is a real jerk.
You know, another thing that cracks me up here is that Gloria and this ex wife twit are going back to unseal divorce papers so they can try to speak to Mitt Romney’s character. So I guess now the whole country is supposed to sit and listen to this dirty laundry crap about two people we don’t care about and make snap judgments about Romney.
By doing this, it is a loud siren as to characters of Gloria Allred and this woman. Many of Gloria’s fellow attorneys hate her because she is a lowlife.
Today she is proving them correct in assessing her character.
Beware. Allred is scum but isnt stupid. I doubt she would waste her time if there wasnt something about this divorce that makes Romney look really bad. On the bright side it looks like new info on Obama’s lies on Libya should cancel out anything bad on Romney.
“With most Americans either having gone through divorce themselves or KNEW someone who has, this too shall past.
These folks are simply desperate, KNOWING it is OVER for them.”
I agree with this in principle. I’m only saying we are dealing with absolutely horrible people here. Allred has something bigger in mind that what the sealed documents say. In my opinion it’s really about the gag order, and all of the “new information” Allred and her client can provide if it’s lifted. They can say absolutely anything. What difference does the truth mean to them?
DU’ers think this a false flag thing, a plot by Romney to have the MSM cover it and it purposely backfire and further erode their credibility. Seriously this is even less than I thought, no wonder Glorida Alled was not out hyperventilating, its less than a non issue, no story, no legs and nothing to see here. This thread should be locked.
(This occurred when her stock was ascending)
During depositions, he revealed that their were some errors in the proceeding filings (I do not recall the details), which meant the claim would be thrown out on a technicality. Allred’s client would lose.
When this became obvious, Allred left the meeting, almost immediately, leaving an assistant to clean up the remains.
The substance of the clients claim was valid (as related to one of the named defendants), but the error made the case a loser. Allred bailed and left the women hanging.
Still not a big Mitt fan (he'll be more RINO than GW Bush... so it's up to us to hammer Congress, and get the Senate), or of the GOP party leadership, but hopefully the kingmakers in the GOP made the right call this time around.
Does this woman own any other color jacket?
Will some reporter PLEASE ask her if she is headed to Chicago to represent the mother of Donald Young, force the Chicago PD to release phone records relating to the murder, and reopen the yet unsolved murder of her son? After all, Gloria represents women crying out for help.
Remember, this was before Staples went public and the Romney camp is saying his testimony covers the value of Staples. My guess is she will claim Romney undervalued the company in his testimony and her client walked off with thousands while her husband walked off with millions. Just my personal speculation of where she is going with this.
The Boston Globe was told that the testimony has far more than merely “valuing a business”. They heard that Romney backs Sternberg’s character, in the face of accusations of spousal battery by the ex-wife. She clearly told Allred this, or else Gloria would not have made the trip to Boston. The romney folks should not be so quick to not object. They should simply stay out of it, and let Mr. Sternberg’s lawyers strenuously object, as they are.
Make no mistake.
Gloria is there for Gloria and no other reason.
It’s called Denial of Server attacks...
Then she and Aldred will be sued into utter devestation. They will need to sell body parts to eat a lunch.
The romney folks should not be so quick to not object. They should simply stay out of it, and let Mr. Sternbergs lawyers strenuously object, as they are.
This is ultimately NOT going to be about the documents. It’s going to be about the gag order. It’s going to be about allowing this woman to run to Oprah to tell “the rest of her story”, and about the Romney campaign having to deal with whatever lies she presents as new information. She will be able to say anything she wants, and there are plenty of stupid people who will believe her.
