The lawyer is a crook who belongs in jail for life. It is bedtime for Tippy and her fish and myself, and to all, a good night.

This lawyer should be in fear of disbarment for this. I wonder if the state bar is watching?

Some professions, Lawyers, doctors, policemen, elected officials and others have a very tight club which manages to overlook and/or cover up each others illegal acts......

It will be interesting to see how this case comes out. Keep us posted..

Very true.... judges, union officials, correction officers, etc. This is really a disgrace. This guy should definitely be in hot water. About a year ago there was a probate judge in CT who tried to hijack someone's estate. It made my blood boil. He was called on it and he declined to run again (in CT, judges are elected)
There was also a judge who was caught drunk driving. She threatened the careers of the state troopers who booked her- and she got away with it. She's still a sitting judge.

Eleven thousand posts?

11,000 / 395 days = 28 posts per day.

Actually she did stick up for your right to post. If you are retired, and you like posting on Topix, then actually it would be easy to average 28 posts per day. It's understandable.
Just throw a little variety in there sam, and you would be the star of the forum!

You only on Bridgeport forum to harass and insult people in Connecticut who write comments on our news stories. You are a low life and a sicko, and a bully and thug. You have no friends here, go away.
