    BIASED Judge in Fusion GPS Case FORCED to Recuse Herself This may be the most obvious case of conflict I’ve seen in a while. How this judge could have ever gotten the Fusion GPS case shows a lack of integrity in our justice system. As True Pundit wrote of U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, and her “blatant conflicts of interest in the Fusion GPS case”: On Thursday the United States District Court for the District of Columbia re-assigned the Fusion GPS bank record case to a new federal judge, removing Chutkan from making any additional decisions on the case.

    Full title: Harvey Weinstein's Lawyer Gave $10,000 To Manhattan DA After He Declined To File Sexual Assault Charges Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer delivered $10,000 to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. in 2015, in the months after Vance’s office decided not to prosecute Weinstein over sexual assault allegations, according to an International Business Times review of campaign finance documents. That contribution from attorney David Boies — who previously headlined a fundraiser for Vance — was a fraction of the more than $182,000 that Boies, his son and his law partners have delivered to the Democrat during his political career....

    <p>Theranos, the biotech company started by a 19-year-old Stanford dropout, has another hurdle to cross in its whole "we're totally a legit blood-testing company" campaign. This time, it turns out that tens of thousands of blood tests were voided, making them totally invalid. Whoops!</p>

    We haven't really written much about the insane Theranos scandal, though we discussed it on our podcast. The whole story is pretty crazy -- involving a heavily hyped up company that appeared to basically be flat out lying to everyone about what it could do. The company still exists, but barely. The company's founder and CEO, who was plastered across magazine covers and compared frequently to Steve Jobs, has been banned from running a lab for two years, and the company is now facing a $140 million lawsuit from its biggest partner, Walgreens, who claims that Theranos repeatedly lied to...

    Litigator David Boies and the law firm he founded, Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, have stopped doing legal work for Theranos Inc. after disagreeing about the strategy for handling ongoing government investigations of the blood-testing company, according to people familiar with the matter. Boies, 75, has been one of the country’s best-known litigators since the late 1990s. He became Theranos’s outside counsel after being approached in 2011 by two investors in the Palo Alto, Calif., startup. He fiercely defended Theranos against questions about its technology and operations. Read: ‘Fraud is not a trade secret’: How a 27-year-old blew the whistle...

    Last year, Elizabeth Holmes topped the FORBES list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with a net worth of $4.5 billion. Today, FORBES is lowering our estimate of her net worth to nothing. Theranos had no comment. Our estimate of Holmes’ wealth is based entirely on her 50% stake in Theranos, the blood-testing company she founded in 2003 with plans of revolutionizing the diagnostic test market. Theranos shares are not traded on any stock market; private investors purchased stakes in 2014 at a price that implied a $9 billion valuation for the company. Since then, Theranos has been hit with allegations...

    For those confident that the Supreme Court’s decisions in Wednesday’s same-sex marriage cases, Perry v. Hollingsworth and United States v. Windsor, will make marriage an issue of states’ rights, think again. David Boies, co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in Perry, told Candy Crowley on Sunday’s State of the Union that the Supreme Court’s decision appropriately “invalidated” states’ rights: "California decided. California passed Proposition 8. What the Court was doing was invalidating California’s choice, and that is exactly what the courts are supposed to do under the 14th Amendment." The principles from the Supreme Court’s rulings on Wednesday are “now going...

    Rhode Island’s blue-on-blue showdown is heating up. Famed litigator David Boies is taking a 96 percent pay cut to represent the state against recalcitrant public sector unions. The New York Times reports: Mr. Boies became involved, he said, because he was convinced that Rhode Island’s pension troubles were just the tip of a $5 trillion iceberg of unsecured retirement promises to the nation’s millions of public workers. “This is something that can cripple state and municipal governments at a time when the federal government is, more and more, cutting back on the services it provides,” he said. Public unions and...

    Article 1 Section 7.5 of the California constitution states that "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." (see story) This amendment was voted on and passed by the people of California and confirmed by the California State Supreme Court on Tuesday May 26, 2009 it is the law. But nothing is enough for homosexuals short of getting what they want no matter what. And in the process homosexuals have disrespected the California voters...

    Maverick filmmaker Michael Moore took the first step on Wednesday in launching his own probe into the U.S. government's investigation of him for making an unauthorized trip to Cuba to film scenes for his latest movie "SiCKO." Moore's attorney David Boies sent the U.S. Treasury Department a Freedom of Information Act request for all documents in its possession regarding its civil investigation of Moore which was launched by the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control. The Office of Foreign Assets Control told Moore earlier this month that it was conducting a civil investigation to see if he violated the U.S....

    May 13, 2007 -- First he helped Al Gore fight George W. Bush. Now, he's helping Michael Moore do the same thing. High-powered attorney David Boies - chief counsel in Gore's recount battle against Bush in the 2000 presidential election - has been hired to help the filmmaker fight a federal probe into his new film "Sicko," according to The Weinstein Company. Moore landed in hot water when he took ailing 9/11 responders to Cuba seeking health care as part of the documentary, which highlights problems with the American health care system and HMOs.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - An antitrust lawsuit filed Monday against Exxon Mobil Corp. and BP PLC claims the two oil giants are restricting the nation's supply of natural gas and keeping prices at record highs. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Fairbanks, says the two companies acted together to eliminate competition for the exploration, development and marketing of natural gas from Alaska's North Slope to U.S. markets. "The only reason for them to collusively not to sell is to try to continue the scarcity that has driven natural gas prices to historic highs," said David Boies, the...

    ( - The lawyer who represented Al Gore in the hotly contested Florida post-election recount in 2000 is now facing ethics charges in what one local newspaper described as a "bizarre" case. The Florida Bar's grievance committee found probable cause to charge David Boies with three counts of ethics violations. The ruling on July 10 accused Boies of misconduct, giving financial assistance to a client and improperly supervising other lawyers. The bar's finding is comparable to an indictment, and a judge appointed by the Florida Supreme Court will hear the case. No timeline for resolving the matter has been set....
