The main thing they can do is put a lien on any real property Postle may own and Postle won't be able to buy or sell anything for rest of his life without paying this debt first. Of course this is more work. Maybe Postle has property or money. Its a risk Witteles and his lawyer were willing to take. Maybe Postle sets up some restitution plan, who knows.

Hopefully this is a joke post.

The truth is more like the reverse. A government employee on a fixed salary making sure to do her due diligence and spend her entire afternoon to ensure she has all the facts and law right and justice is served before dismissing a case. She read all the papers, researched the law, wrote a lengthy tentative opinion, and gave an indigent plaintiff a chance to explain his case and excuse his behavior.

And then once she heard the **** that Postle spewed, she rightfully confirmed that Postle's lawsuit violated the First Amendment.

If only all government employees were like her, you mean.

Taxpayer money went down the drain for 1 reason and 1 reason only. Mike Postle. Or Mike Postal the way he was called at the hearign lol.

Is the award of attorney's fees in CA considered an enforceable money judgment, or would the defense need to file a separate action collect in the event that he doesn't voluntarily pay?

Professional cry babies more like it.
This is the equivalent of a truck driver in Afghanistan saying that he has to deal with IEDs, suicide bombers, and sniper fire so everyone else should too. If I were you I'd seriously consider a career change as one should not have to deal with harassment or violence at the workplace. Fortunately, I heard some places are hiring such as Home Depot, Chipoltle, car dealership, Star Bucks, etc.

The defendants are the prevailing party since Postle dropped his claims. The prevailing party is owed court related costs from Postle in the amount of $26,982.

It was a 20 minute hearing that should have lasted no more than 5 minutes.

In no order:

- Mike Postle didn't serve the lawsuit (only filed it) so shouldn't be held accountable for people having to move to strike the complaint
- he is still defamed, harassed, all over the internet and real life
- Mike Postle massive victim because the people he sued hired lawyers when they didn't have to and its not fair they are using the law on his own lawsuit against them
- he is without a lawyer and his other lawyers left because of countless ill timed deaths and medical emergencies
- again he should not be held accountable for his lawsuit because he never served anyone
- he didn't cheat
- he won a massive victory in this court proving he didn't cheat
- someone saw him in a parking lot with his daughter or something and called him a mean name
- he cannot work because he is a poker cheater
- threw all **** at wall except facts and law
- trying to get help at legal aid clinic or something but then that person had heart attack and couldn't help him
- Other attorney talks 30 seconds total, Mike Postle Bullshits for 20+ minutes
- Mike Postle is real victim here, social media campaign, harassment, won lawsuit that vindicated him, and this motion against me not fair
- Judge: Do you have any law that changes the statute from saying "I MUST AWARD REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES" MP: "NO"
Tentative ruling affirmed.

My commentary: It would be legal malpractice to dismiss the complaint after the anti-slapp filed. Basically just automatic defeat.

I'm not sure I'm defense.

Probably the order is enforceable by itself, but in practice to collect probably has to file something at county registrar or with sheriff or new lawsuit however you think you can collect.

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

If Postle wants to prove himself he should obtain his phone records and show all the activity on his telephone. It should be easy to verify if it was the one in the video because there are so many timestamps where he checked his phone.

If Postle would get his phone rrecords I think it would go a long way to show his sincerity.

I've given him the benefit of a doubt because I simply don't see how there aren't wifi records in the hands of the casino. Why aren't these being shared with Mr. Postle?

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

What does Postle need to prove? He was not convicted of anything.

Wouldn't phone records and wifi records have been something prosecutors could have used to build a case against Postle? There is all sorts of data from the servers and such that one would have thought could have been used against Postle but it wasn't.

RIP, to the Dream Crusher's hero. Really can we all just think about Mike's daughter? Her father can no longer play poker/cheat others out of money, in a game he finally figured out. I actually feel sorry that she has such a loser father.

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

I thought he was guilty but the fact that none of the poker geniuses were able to prove his "obvious cheating" and no further evidence was gathered beyond the streams themselves is quite damning to the argument that Postle is guilty.

Hell nobody even knows exactly how he allegedly cheated or who exactly would have been involved. No evidence was found on servers. There were no eye witnesses with any information beyond what was shown in the live streams. The whole thing has been a big nothing burger and a huge fail for the internet detectives.

Like someone previously posted, if he was cheating with a device in his lap, all someone would have had to do was come up behind him and look at his lap. That didn't even happen, SMH.

At this point, Postle had to prove he had meritorious defamation claims despite the dismissal of his Complaint and he should not be liable for any attorney fees.

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

Even if Postle is factually guilty, he'd have a good defamation case unless there is a bunch of evidence against Postle we haven't heard about. But the controversy did destroy his reputation and his livlihood, he can easily show that. And that is all he has to show, if I understand correctly. Then it is up to the defendents to show they have evidence he cheated. I don't get why he sued unless he's innocent, but why'd he lose his lawyers then?

Dude makes no sense. How come he doesn't make his innocent phone data public. Show everyone!

Was his livelihood one poker stream? There are other casinos he can go to. There’s online poker. How has he been denied access to a wage? You Postle apologists are so pathetic.

This is 100% wrong.

Defamation case was so bad, it was literally prohibited by law from going forward. In fact, it was such a bad defamation case, that the judge had no choice but to award $26k in legal fees just to respond to Mike Postle's complaint lol!

People throw around First Amendment violations too much, but Mike Postle's defamation case was literally a First Amendment violation barred from going to court as meritless lawsuit filed against people for the exercise of First Amendment rights.

Mike Postle best move now would be likely to sue his own lawyers who filed this case for malpractice!

My understanding is that his livelihood was one poker stream. His contention seems to be that he will be harrassed and potentially unsafe at live poker rooms. I don't believe he has been an online pro for quite some time. Winrates he achieved playing live are not attainable online (at least they haven't been since back in the day when Russ Hamilton was crushing).

If Postle has a right to play on a live stream, then me you and everybody else does too. Where doo I file my lawsuit to Stones for not being afforded the opportunity to make a living wage through their televised Poker games?

If he feels unsafe in Poker rooms than that is his and the establishment where he feels unsafe at problem. It is up to the establishment to provide a safe environment for their customers. If they can't then Postle may have a legitimate lawsuit against said establishment.

The reason he sued them was to stop them publicly saying he was a cheat.

He lost his lawyers as presumably they walked once they realised they were out of their depth in this case, as they did not have defamation experience, so it was never clear even from the beginning why he had chosen them, presumably because no one else was wiling to take on his clearly indefensible case. And they will have realised his case was hopeless, as it is circumstantially clear he cheated, so people saying that he is a poker cheat were doing nothing more than tell the truth, rather than treat him unfairly or damagingly.

He is a cheating lying poker player, trying to push bluffs through - that he is a victim who didn't cheat, and that people that say he is a cheat are treating him unfairly.

this has been addressed before, it would have been ideal for concerned parties to "launch a sting" but then that's a legal issue i'm not even sure if you could do that and/or if it would be admissable

but mostly, their hands were tied by the fact that casino itself wouldn't pursue the matter and i think veronica figured it was best just to put it into a stop loss and stop it from continuing rather than let it proceed

ideally she would have sought legal counsel and hired a pi or at least just pretended to be drunk and grabbed his hat/phone is a flirty manner but hindsight is 20/20 and we can't fault her for acting when all those other people didn't even notice

also, lol at that video, postle looks like an 8 year old who raided his dad's closet to play dress up, looks like the first time he ever wore a tie or collared shirt
