KANSAS CITY TRANSIT ACTIVIST CHASTAIN CALLS OUT LAWYER TODD GRAVES AMID FACEBOOK LEGAL BATTLE ROYALE!!!
Here's the latest from Kansas City transit advocate Clay Chastain who not only fights for his light rail proposal but also crusades against social media trash talk.
Here's the e-mail he sent our way promising a courtroom show down.
Clay Chastain...Anne Hodgdon's Attorney, Todd Graves, seeks to overturn court ruling
Wealthy socialite Anne Hodgdon and her high-powered and wealthy Attorney, Todd Graves, are at it again after losing (Aug.15 ruling) their legal attempt to have my defamation case against Hodgdon thrown out of the United States District Court for the District of Kansas.
Not only does Hodgdon's false and malicious accusation (that 20-years ago I sexually assaulted if not attempted to rape her and then chased after her down the street "enraged and screaming like a madman" intent on physically harming her) not add up in the slightest, but there is also plenty of "extrinsic evidence" to prove she published her Facebook post knowing it was false and is thus guilty of "actual malice."
Graves reacted to the federal judge's decision in the Topeka Capital-Journal newspaper on Aug.23 where he said, "the court was required to give Chastain the benefit of the doubt at this stage."
Then why, Mr. Graves, did you file your motion to have the case dismissed to begin with? And why Mr. Graves are you filing a new motion asking the court to throw out (reconsider) the motion you just said they should have granted?
Our nation's Chief Justice, John Roberts, recently lamented that the U.S.Federal Court System is getting bogged down and unable to mete out justice in a timely fashion because, in large part, many attorneys are flooding the courts with numerous and vacuous pleadings designed to delay justice, wear down opponents, soak their clients, bamboozle and mislead judges, and otherwise abuse the United States Federal Court System.
It appears Attorney Todd Graves may be exemplary of Robert's concern.
P.S. Look for my legal response (again pro-se) to Graves' legal trickery early next week.
