    Prominent feminist attorney Lisa Bloom, who is also the daughter of Gloria Allred, took to Twitter on Friday to insist that she believes former Vice President Joe Biden sexually assaulted Tara Reade but that she would vote for him anyway. Reade came forward on March 25 to claim that while she worked as a staffer for Biden’s senate office in 1993, he pinned her against the wall, groped her, and put his hands under her skirt to penetrate her with his fingers. Unlike the dubious allegations against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, left-leaning media outlets refused to cover Reade’s allegations...

    A women’s rights lawyer tried to solicit cash from donors and media outlets for women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, a new report said Friday. Attorney Lisa Bloom offered to sell the alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets and wanted to pocket a portion for herself as a commission, The Hill reported. She persuaded a donor to pay off one accuser’s mortgage and tried to get a fat six-figure payment for another woman who eventually declined to come forward even after she was offered as much as $750,000, the website reported, citing Bloom’s clients as sources. Bloom...

    Several former clients of Lisa Bloom are publicly castigating the lawyer, who recently advised disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, for seemingly caring more about money and publicity than civil rights, a cause she once championed with previous clients. Bloom, the daughter of prominent women's rights attorney Gloria Allred, resigned as an adviser to Weinstein two days after the New York Times published its bombshell story on the film producer earlier this month, but her decision to work with Weinstein in the first place raised eyebrows. Among those who were surprised by the decision was NBC investigative reporter Ronan Farrow, who...

    Let's talk about how I can do better,” Lisa Bloom said. It was a Friday morning — the first day the attorney was back in her Woodland Hills law firm following her resignation as Harvey Weinstein’s adviser — and she'd called her staff into a meeting. She wanted to apologize. She told her colleagues she'd made a "colossal mistake" in deciding to represent the Hollywood producer against numerous claims of sexual harassment. That she was sorry for associating the firm with a case that ended up being such a nightmare.​ That she should have known better. Bloom is not often...

    Kathy Griffin unexpectedly severed ties with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, over the weekend, but the comedian has come forward to explain why she axed her. In an interview with the Daily Beast, Griffin recalled the disastrous June 2 press conference she participated in with Bloom to address her controversial Donald Trump “severed head” photo. Hours after the much-maligned event, Griffin participated in a conference call with Bloom, her entertainment lawyer and her First Amendment lawyer, as well as Braden Pollock, who is Bloom’s husband and the manager of her firm. “Lisa said, ‘Kathy, I don’t like it that you’re the...

    An exposé by The Daily Beast‘s Lloyd Grove details how Lisa Bloom — a lawyer famous for her defense of sexual harassment victims — reportedly attempted to discredit Rose McGowan’s allegations against Harvey Weinstein with “files on her and her sexual history.” The report details a conversation between journalist Ronan Farrow — who helped break open the Weinstein scandal with his New Yorker piece — in which Bloom said, “I don’t know if you’ve talked to Rose McGowan, but we have files on her and her sexual history.” Farrow was reportedly “stunned and disgusted” by the supposed feminist’s threat against...

    Sunday night, using her Facebook account, actress Rose McGowan accused disgraced attorney Lisa Bloom of offering her millions of dollars to hop on board the “Harvey’s Changed bandwagon.” Bloom immediately denied McGowan’s allegations. Nevertheless, with her reputation already shattered by similar accusations of incompetence and inappropriate behavior in defense of producer Harvey Weinstein and Amazon’s Roy Price, the last thing Bloom needed was McGowan hopping on board the “Lisa Bloom’s a bumbling sell-out” bandwagon. McGowan opens with: Lisa Bloom. Lisa Bloom. Your very name makes my stomach clench with a stressed tightness that takes my breath away. As does your...

    Feminist attorney Gloria Allred criticized Texas leaders Monday for including elective abortions in their restrictions on non-essential medical care during the coronavirus crisis. Allred told Your Content News that the decision by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton is “reprehensible” because women may “need” abortions. “It is reprehensible that the Governor and Attorney General of Texas have used the COVID-19 pandemic to attack some of the most vulnerable women in Texas who need access to a safe, legal and affordable abortion,” Allred said. But abortions are not being singled out. Texas and a number of other states...

    Four teachers from a Los Angeles-area school sued Delta Air Lines on Friday, saying they were exposed to jet fuel when a plane with engine trouble dumped its fuel over a densely populated area, including several schools, while making an emergency return to the airport. At a news conference, the teachers described the fuel as drizzling down like raindrops with “overwhelming” fumes. They said their panicked students screamed and cried. “The plaintiffs could feel the fuel on their clothes, their flesh, their eyes and their skin,” said the teachers’ attorney, Gloria Allred, who noted that her firm may add teachers...

    Sitting in a posh Upper East Side of Manhattan home, feminist lawyer Gloria Allred claimed she “had” to abort her unborn baby when she was a young woman prior to Roe v. Wade. Allred recently sat down for an interview with The Guardian, joined by fellow feminist Gloria Steinem at her home in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country. They talked about their work, politics and their abortion advocacy, among other things. “The issue of reproductive rights and who controls a woman’s body is so essential now, because it is being challenged. There are a lot of...

    One of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers says he raped and trafficked her for two years before throwing her out onto the street when she told him she had developed an eating disorder, according to a new lawsuit against the dead pedophile’s estate. Teala Davies was just 17 when she met the wealthy financier in 2002 through her older sister — whom he was also abusing — and claims he groomed her to become totally dependent on him, according to the complaint filed Thursday in Manhattan federal court. Davies was working as a hairdresser in Los Angeles and says Epstein fostered her...

    A woman who once famously claimed she had a 13-year affair with Herman Cain said Thursday she would testify under oath against him unless he withdraws his campaign for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board. Ginger White of Atlanta said she is willing to even identify certain parts of Cain’s body to back up her accusations, which he has denied for years. “It’s time for you to be held accountable for your actions,” White said at a press conference in Manhattan, flanked by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred. “Today more than ever, women are fighting back.

    President Trump may never sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, but it’s looking more likely he’ll have to answer questions as part of a defamation lawsuit filed by a former contestant on “The Apprentice.” A ruling by a New York state judge this week said Trump can be deposed in the defamation lawsuit filed by Summer Zervos, the former contestant who has accused Trump of unwanted advances.Some see the legal fight, which has received less publicity than other cases, as the most dangerous to Trump because it could lead to testimony where he’d risk lying or making...

    President Trump must sit for seven hours of questioning in the defamation case filed by a former contestant on his reality TV show, a judge ruled Tuesday — but it’s unclear if he’ll get grilled about other women’s allegations of sexual assault and harassment. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter ordered that Trump be deposed by Jan. 31 and told lawyers on both sides to submit written arguments on whether Summer Zervos’ lawyer can ask him about the other accusers. The issue could prove thorny for Trump, because the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton grew out of a deposition...

    Attorney​-to-the-stars​ Tom Mesereau laid into legal adversary Gloria Allred on Thursday during ​testimony in ​Bill Cosby‘s sex assault retrial, repeatedly questioning a witness about Allred’s suggested $100 million fund for the comedian’s accusers. “If [Allred] puts this $100 million fund together, she gets 30 to 40 percent of it, correct?” Mesereau asked accuser Janice Baker-Kinney, who says she was raped by Cosby in Reno in 1982. “I don’t know what her percentage would be, you would have to ask her,” the 60-year-old California stage manager responded. Allred, who represents a number of Cosby accusers​ ​—​ ​including three of the women...
