    PHOENIX — Attorney John Eastman pleaded not guilty in a Phoenix courthouse on Friday to state charges that he schemed to keep former President Donald Trump in power after he lost the 2020 presidential election, according to multiple reports. Eastman, who advised Trump’s 2020 campaign, appeared briefly before a judge and later told reporters, “I’m confident that with the laws faithfully applied, I will be fully exonerated,” The New York Times reported. “I had zero communications with the electors in Arizona (and) zero involvement in any of the election litigation in Arizona or legislative hearings,” he said, according to The...

    The judge overseeing former President Donald Trump’s New York criminal case, New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan, is a Biden donor, Trump lawyer Jesse Binnall said during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily. Discussing the case involving Democrat Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who charged Trump with 34 felonies, accusing him of falsifying business records in relation to a “hush money” payment made to Stormy Daniels, Binnall reminded listeners that the entire case “is based on the word of Michael Cohen,” an “admitted perjurer.” “That’s the kind of the best they have. That’s what they’re building their case around...

    One of the first openly transgender attorneys in Washington state has proven that her unique appearance has no impact on her success as a lawyer in her small town. Lawyer Stephanie Mueller, 70, has been open about her background and says it has no impact on her ability as a public defender. 'I get good results because I'm a good lawyer. This is very, very fabulous,' Mueller once said. Despite her unique appearance, Mueller insists she has been 'treated with complete respect and great acceptance' since transitioning in 2012 - at the age of 58. 'It's really important to know...

    New York City Comptroller Brad Lander has drawn outrage for claiming that giving each of the tens of thousands of migrants pouring into the Big Apple free legal representation could net billions in economic benefits for New York state. Lander’s office said in a report that coughing up individual lawyers to rep migrants could prevent roughly 53,000 asylum seekers from being deported across the Empire State — resulting in an estimated net benefit of $8.4 billion for local, state and federal governments. “Access to work authorization leads to higher wages. The higher earning power generates more tax revenue. Higher personal...

    Nathan Wade's divorce attorney, Terrence Bradley, had a candid reaction to a piece of evidence he was presented with while on the stand Tuesday in the financial corruption trial of District Attorney Fani Willis.

A clip shows Bradley muttering to himself 'oh dang' as he reviews a series of texts in which he seemingly confirms that Willis and...

    In 2022, Mason Herring, a Texas attorney, dissolved numerous abortion pills in his wife’s cup of water. Though the baby in Catherine Herring’s womb ended up surviving the attempted murder, Mr. Herring pleaded guilty Wednesday to poisoning his wife. The Herrings were reportedly going through marital struggles back in 2022 but decided to start working on their relationship more as time went on. In February, Mrs. Herring became pregnant. Then, starting in March, Mr. Herring began slipping the pill Cyrux, an abortion pill sold in Mexico, into his wife’s drinks. (Cyrux is the same as misoprostol, the first of two...

    Embattled former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says the Trump 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee still owe him $2 million in legal fees for challenging the former president’s election loss. Giuliani, 79, said during a bankruptcy court hearing Wednesday that the former president asked him to spearhead legal matters for the campaign in November 2020 — the same month Trump lost to President Biden. “Once I took over, it was my understanding that I would be paid by the campaign for my legal work and my expenses to be paid,” he told the Manhattan federal bankruptcy trustee...

    Ajudge on Monday cut off a lawyer for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as he was arguing why his client should not be deposed in a divorce hearing involving special prosecutor Nathan Wade, whom she hired to handle the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump. Willis, who is accused of having an affair with Wade, was originally scheduled for a deposition in the case on Tuesday, but Judge Henry Thompson delayed that ruling until after Wade himself is questioned later this month. During a brief hearing at Cobb County Superior Court Monday, Willis’ lawyer, Cinque Axam,...

    Legal analyst and attorney Jonathan Turley warned on Saturday of a critical "problem" within the complicated relationship between Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son, and his lawyer Kevin Morris. Hunter Biden has been on Republicans' radar amid a House impeachment inquiry into President Biden. GOP members on the House Oversight Committee have claimed that the president has been involved in and benefited from his son's foreign business dealings. The White House has repeatedly denied that the president had any involvement in his son's dealings. President Biden, meanwhile, has called the inquiry a "baseless political stunt." On Thursday, House Oversight Committee...

    Ron DeSantis has further alienated the America First conservatives he hoped to win over from Donald Trump’s base by disparaging January 6th protestors, denying they were motivated by patriotism.Speaking at a CNN town hall, the Florida Governor was asked if “the January 6th insurrections display[ed] patriotism, as some of them claim they did” by an audience member.“No, of course not,” DeSantis replied immediately. “I mean, that was not a good day for the country. I think the media has taken that, and I think the left has taken that, and really tried to politicize it, but it was not a...

    Sitrick & Company, the global crisis public relations firm who has a client list of the rich and powerful — including Jeffrey Epstein — was burglarized over the New Year's holiday by thieves who stole company computers just hours before a trove of long-sealed court documents related to the admitted pedophile were released. Michael Sitrick said his penthouse offices at 11999 San Vicente Boulevard, along with other occupants of the four-story building in Brentwood that bears his company's name Sitrick & Co., was broken into by unknown thieves just as explosive new documents about Epstein's proclivities with underage girls were...

    Michael Cohen, former President Trump’s ex-fixer and personal lawyer, said in newly unsealed court filings that he accidentally gave his lawyer fake legal citations concocted by the artificial intelligence program Google Bard. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman called three case citations into question earlier this month after they were used in a motion to end Cohen’s supervised release early. Cohen pleaded guilty to charges including tax evasion and campaign finance violations in 2018 and served some time in prison. Cohen wrote in a sworn declaration unsealed Friday that he has not kept up with “emerging trends (and related risks)” in...

    Passing the bar exam is no longer the only way to become a lawyer in Oregon. Students at the state’s three law school can now bypass the grueling two-day test by logging hundreds of hours at a law firm and then submitting samples of their work for review under a new system approved last week by the Oregon Supreme Court. The Supervised Practice Portfolio Examination makes Oregon the first state in the nation to allow students to become lawyers through a post-graduation apprenticeship, though backers believe it won’t be the last.

    A Florida lawyer is challenging former President Trump’s ability to run for president in 2024 under the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment, citing the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. Lawrence Caplan, a tax attorney in Palm Beach County, filed the challenge in federal court Thursday, pointing to a clause in the amendment that says those who “have engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the government cannot hold office.

Gardephe will determine the restitution Finkelstein must pay at a later date. The Davie, Fla., man pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud in July 2022 for a...
