Subject: Time for Jerome Larkin to either fish or cut bait
Date: Nov 14, 2016 3:19 PM
During the last Presidential campaign the two candidates for President concentrated on demonizing their opponents. Each portrayed their opponent in the most derogatory manner possible. Some of the comments were fair, others were unfair, and still others were downright improper. Unfortunately, this Presidential campaign was and is not the only forum in which such obscenity occurs.
Just so that we cannot be properly accused of similar conduct, I think we ought to offer Jerome Larkin a public opportunity to explain the Lanre Amu case wherein we have accused him of gross racial discrimination and in particular obtaining the suspension of Amu for practicing law while black. At the very same time, we would like an explanation as to how it happened that Diane Nash was barred from the JoAnne Denison hearing. (There was a vacant seat right next to me!) NB. Crains Chicago Business made the same complaint as Mr. Amu concerning the activities of certain judges, and Larkin did not go after a single one of their lawyers).
In addition, it seems very appropriate that we give Mr. Jerome Larkin the opportunity to explain just how the blog MARYGSYKES is not protected by either statute of the First Amendment, and finally just how a statement appearing in the Probate Sharks blog asking for an HONEST INVESTIGATION is unethical and not protected by the First Amendment.
The hypocrisy being exhibited by the Political Establishment and the media is today monumental. The People of the United States of America have made a statement and it is time for lawyers to make a statement. Put up or shut up is not elegant or even polite – but it states exactly what the public wants today!
So: Mr. Larkin, if I can arrange for you to communicate on MaryGSykes, Probate Sharks blog, and/or on Bev Cooper’s “Coopers Corner” are you willing to make an HONEST STATEMENT?
