Based on the comments of a lawyer representing the owners of Valley Springs Manor, the things that went on there:(A) were not really that bad; and (B) the actions of the authorities and the few remaining employees were a major overreaction.
One. Is he willing to make and repeat those statements under oath.
Two. Is he willing to state that he has intelligently and impartially analyzed the situation, and that therefore his defense of the owners is not just the standard lawyer's lies and garbage, IN OTHER WORDS THE TYPE OF LIES, GARBAGE, AND NONSENSE THAT LAWYERS NORMALLY PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO PAY THEM A FEE, but instead things he truly believes.
Three. Since lawyers have far and away the highest rates of alcoholism and drug abuse of any major profession, is he also willing to state, AND WHILE UNDER OATH AND PENALTY OF PERJURY, that he truly believe in the defenses he has made in favor of the owners, and that he is neither drunk and/or on drugs.
FOUR. If he, and like an extremely high percentage of lawyers, has a history and/or past history of alcoholism and/or drug abuse, is he willing to disclose such.
and FIVE. Does he have so much confidence in the statements and defenses he has provided for the owners, that therefore if it turns out that his statements have been nothing but a lot of lies and/or nonsensical garbage, that he will surrender all of his assets to the former residents and their families and he will also go to prison for twenty years.
(NOTE: Anytime a lawyer tries feeding you the standard lawyer's lies and garbage, ask him if he, and just like a lot of lawyers, is on drugs.)
