Sabrina: "Trust me, he never eats salad"

7:31 Grand Sierra Resort Scam - Mike has a broken veneer, so he saves a small 1/4 inch piece of meat for when he goes to Reno..... Goes to the buffet/salad bar- then tells them he cracked his tooth while eating there so they would pay for his tooth.

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

Moneymaker is famous and Postle is a narcissist. Seems likely Postle played up his relationship with Moneymaker to his friends and or around his wife to make himself look more important.

Just wanted to throw that out there.

how do you figure that? If he didn't do it, he had an easy half million in judgements coming, if they based damages off his income as it appeared on the stream.

So again, why won't the casino release the wifi and let us know if the accusations he was getting signals from the staff have merit.

I wonder why. LOL Because it doesn't show anything that people here said it would.

Pretty much hoping the courts make these decisions not the ex-spouse.

Restrict what government? There is no government without a constitution.

The purpose of the constitution is to create a government of agreed upon powers. Nothing about the nature of a constitution says those powers must be limited, unless the constitution says so. Our constitution creates a government of enumerated, limited powers.

The Bill of Rights is there to limit the federal government's authority and did not limit state government authority until very recently. This incorporation of the Bill of Rights to protect against state and local action is what the GOP meant by standing up for the Supreme Court's violation of States' Rights.

Postle: My lawyer screwed me because he did X.

Lawyer: I did X because he told me facts A, B and C, and I felt X was the best legal strategy given facts A, B and C. It turns out A, B, and C are entirely false and complete lies, and the truth is F, G and H. X is a horribly dumb legal strategy for him in a world where A, B and C are false and F, G and H are the truth. I would never have taken that route, and would have done Y and Z, instead of X.

Postle: But X cost me money!

Lawyer: I only did X because you told me A, B and C. Had you told me F, G and H, I would not have done X, I would have done Y, and you wouldn't have to pay Wittles and Veronica money.

Postle: Damnit I really should have called that hand where I turned top hair after calling with just backdoor draws. Veronica caught on to my martingale strategy and I blew the easiest way to make $200K a year playing poker by not having even the SLIGHTEST bit of subtlety or discretion to my cheating!!!!
Before you simply said if the client lied, the lawyer is immune to malpractice.

Me: I am not addicted to heroin.

Lawyer: I will not challenge the illegal search.

I lied to the lawyer, but that does not excuse his malpractice by not challenging the illegal search.

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

One interesting piece of information from the video was the fact that Postle has connections to Russ Hamilton and was on the Ultimate Blackjack Tour TV program. As people who watched the excellent Eleven Grover documentary know, this program was basically used as a way to funnel the millions they got from cheating into something else legitimate and launder it.

Another few walls of stupidity gives you the lead by a few furlongs.

Why do you think the casino should or will provide information to you or people in this forum? And you logically think the casino's failure to provide this info somehow proves people here wrong? Are you really this dumb?

The casino paid a settlement, obtained releases and closed their files. End of case for them. They want all the evidence buried.

If he had wanted to and/or was skilled enough, Postle could have obtained the wifi signal data during the underlying case or in his defamation claim litigation. It was certainly in his best interests to do so. If it proves him innocent as you believe and it would help his defamation case was "worth a half million." If only you helped him with his lawsuits, he could have been winning one rather than owing the prevailing defendants attorney fees.

Did my first appearance at Stones and he was there and we reconnected. We talked more often once reconnecting and I was going to Stones for appearances and to play in that insane game. Went on a "field trip" with about 5 players and Justin to San Francisco during that time, was the only time we were ever social off the poker table.

He called me the day Veronica broke the story and I went to bat for him as I did not think he was cheating in the games when we played together. Been cheated in two games and figured it out, did not feel like it when we played. Once I saw all the evidence I distanced myself from him. We had a text message exchange probably a year ago about the documentary and wanting me to be involved somehow. He reached out again to me today to apologize but I did not know for what. Pretty much sums it up.

Chris Moneymaker, that is nicely written and you sound like a nice man! Very calm and non judgy. Cheers!

I don’t recall anyone saying that Postle has “full custody”.

Wouldn't it be hard for him to legally prevent the mother from seeing the child if he didn't have full custody?

Their lawyers were allowed to look at [I am not sure now my memory if it was internet data or what. SOrry if that's wrong.]

Why didn't they insist on seeing it?

hm

I just think people bring out the torches so fast and then none of the predictions of what would be shown come true.

Nope. Must have me confused with someone else. Sorry. This was my first post on the issue. I would never say such an absolute claim, if for no other reason than in almost every area of the law and in every possible angle/facet that one can discuss legal scenarios, the answer is never iron-clad, 100%, entirely and completely one thing and never anything else (and yes, within that statement is the exception to the exception, because I'm sure you can think of one area of the law where it's always 100% ironclad hammer-locked down on one side).

And yes, your example there would appear to be a scenario where a client's misrepresentation to his attorney does not preclude a malpractice claim.

However, said lawyer could still try to connect the decision he made to pursue a legal strategy for his client that included not challenging illegal search to the fact that his client told him he is not addicted to heroin. It would be very hard, but I mention that just to illustrate my point. If Postle lied to his attorney, it would make any malpractice claim incredibly tough, unless said lies were entirely irrelevant or immaterial. But odds are, he and his lawyers didn't talk about irrelevant things, and so I'm going to guess that if he lied during his conversations with his attorneys, it was over material and key facts that would make any malpractice claim very, very tough to win.

Thats the thing. We are not commenting on what may have happened. We are commenting on what DID happen.

Postle filed a defamation claim, his lawyers dropped him, he dismissed his defamation claim, he lost to Todd's anti-Slapp motion. You can even read the judge's ruling!

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

Mike Postle is richly deserving of all the hell being visited upon him. I feel sorry for Annabelle, Postle's young daughter. Judging from what's in those text messages, it appears that MP has no qualms about using his daughter as a baseball bat to beat his ex-wife over the head. My father did that same kind of thing to my mother. I never forgave him.

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

I skimmed through the document and it seems like it was written by him. It has the exact same tone as that rant he went on during the last hearing.

He claims:
1) Veronica got her legal bills paid for by a GoFundMe and Bill Perkins so she doesn't need the money.
2) Her lawyer, Marc Randazza, is an unethical person and he overcharges for legal work.
3) Veronica is an unethical person and the cheating charges against Mike are false.

Not sure if any of those claims are enough to outweigh the fact that he lost the case because he withdrew his defamation lawsuit and in those cases you are explicitly liable for the defendant's legal fees.

1) is probably irrelevant since I doubt there's a clause that states that you don't have to pay their legal funds if the money isn't important to them. The funds can always be returned to whoever paid it. 2) is also probably irrelevant as the lawyer's behavior is immaterial and the court can alter the legal fees as was done in the previous hearing. 3) is relitigating the original case, which is not what this is about.

The statute says that attorney fees "shall" meaning no discretion be granted. It doesn't say they "shall be granted pending whether you have a benevolent billionaire helping you." The Judge discussed this in depth in his last oral arguments.

CCP 425.16 - https://codes.findlaw.com/ca/code-of...ct-425-16.html

"Except as provided in paragraph (2), in any action subject to subdivision (b), a prevailing defendant on a special motion to strike shall be entitled to recover his or her attorney's fees and costs.  "


If anything it may make the attorney fees claim a little smaller. A lot of that "evidence" is probably objectionable on countless grounds.

If Veronica is reading this, it may be wise for your attorney file objections to all that evidence in his reply if he is not.

I was eating meatloaf at the buffet at Orleans in Vegas 17 years ago. I bit into a rock hard item in the meatloaf and it broke my tooth and I had to get a crown. It was a bone fragment in the meatloaf which happens. I called security and they took photos of my broken tooth, but in the end, they refused to pay for my dental work. They claimed I could have broken it before I came to the casino just like Postle did. Sigh.

Predict Judge's Order For Payment of Veronica Brill's Attorney Fees

Might as well have some fun with this Mike Postle/Veronica Brill anti-SLAPP showdown.

Assuming Veronica's anti-SLAPP motion hearing against MP proceeds on Wednesday June 16th as scheduled, post your prediction/guesstimate for how much (in attorney fees) the judge will order MP to pay. (Veronica's attorney is asking for somewhere in the neighborhood of $78,000.00) Your prediction/guess will be considered correct if it comes within plus or minus $2,000.00 of the actual amount the judge orders Postle to pay.

My guess: $55,000.00

Tentative ruling up.

Search Dept 53 for 6/16 here - https://services.saccourt.ca.gov/Pub...chByDepartment

Then item 13, page 20 on the pdf

Quote:
The Court acknowledges the "supplemental brief" filed by Plaintiff on June 9, 2021.
(ROA 64.) The filing was untimely and will not be considered by the Court on that
basis. Further, even if the Court were to consider the filing, Plaintiff failed to provide a
declaration or request for judicial notice, etc., authenticating the purported evidence
attached.
Quote:
The voluntary dismissal of a complaint before the
hearing on an anti-SLAPP motion creates a presumption that the defendant is the
prevailing party on the anti-SLAPP motion.
Quote:
The Court finds the costs requested to be reasonable, but finds the fees requested to
be excessive. For example, there are multiple entries totaling 33.5 hours for drafting a
memorandum regarding the initial draft of the anti-SLAPP motion. The Court awards
15 hours at $800 for Mr. Randazza; 25 hours at $450 an hour for Mr. Shepard; and 20
hours of paralegal time at the rate of $175 per hour. In total, the Court awards
$26,783.50 in attorneys’ fees and $961.91 in costs, for a total of $27,745.
