Were we to adopt such a spoils system, the lawyers for the law school scam would be weighed with more bling than Jordan, Kobe, and Duncan put together. This is Bill Russell territory, old school dominance of the court where weak challengers would be wise to not even put on the uniform.
This week, these SuperLawyers got Infilaw's mafia bosses out of the bullshit lawsuit brought by Charlotte Law students.
[Judge] Mullen found that the court has no jurisdiction over Sterling Entities.How do you like that International Shoe up your ass, ya louses?
“Plaintiffs make a feeble attempt in their opposition brief to tie the Sterling Defendants to their claims by vaguely citing their conduct related to the longterm financing and strategic goals of InfiLaw and the for-profit law school that it owned and operated in Charlotte, North Carolina,” Mullen notes in his order (PDF) for Krebs v. Charlotte School of Law (PDF). “Plaintiffs then, in a roundabout way, point to an allegation in the complaint that Sterling Entities were present at Charlotte School of Law after the Department of Education’s lack of recertification occurred as proof of sufficient connections.”
Regardless of your opinion of the personal jurisdiction issues (don't forget Burger King v. Rudzewicz!), it's hard to ignore the prodigious losing streak by those seeking to hold law schools accountable for "alleged" "misdeeds." These would-be lawyers continuously and systematically lose before a single piece of discovery is answered. It's like paying $60 for a video game and not getting past level 2.
The Million Dollar Express can make anyone disgustingly rich. But if you can't get past the pleading stage against an evil empire or two, I'm not sure you have the intelligence to not, like, inexplicably fall off. How do you folks even tie a tie without choking yourselves? Buy clip-ons like a blue collar Joe going to a wedding in Paducah?
It boggles the mind.
