Blackfive has the update:
A Blackfive reader sends this update about the hearing today...:
Attn: Black Five
I am writing to produce an update of the results of Sgt McNulty's case against Jay R Grodner. I was present in support of Mike and thought you may be interested in an update for this story.
Sgt McNulty was called forward by the State's Attorney in order to discuss the case. I am not sure what transpired behind the closed doors, however, I overheard the State's Attorney expressing her intent to prosecute this guy to the fullest extent. It seems as if BlackFive is the sole catalyst to this story getting out and I am sure Sgt McNulty has probably heard the effect of yours and other blogs from the results of today's proceedings to include several Marines and civilians who showed up in his support.
Jay R Grodner was called before court and in his absence, the Judge issued a warrant for his arrest effective immediately. Sgt McNulty was departing the court when Grodner rolled in to the courtroom more pathetic than anyone I had ever seen. The Judge had questioned him on his tardiness and he explained that traffic had been busy and he 'made a wrong turn'. The Judge chastised him for his tardiness, pathetic excuses, and that he was lucky the warrant had not been executed prior to his arrival.
What a liar Grodner is. A lawyer doesn't know where the freakin' courtroom is? Bullshit. I'm sure that Grodner thought he could just drop in whenever he pleased.
Hennessy's View reports that Grodner had his law license suspended back in 1984. The disciplinary findings from the Illinois Supreme Court are here (thanks to Kaitian868 for the link!).
From the Illinois-based Citizens for Legal Responsibility:
In addition to being disciplined for being involved in a scheme to forging documents, it has been reported to CLR that attorney Jay Robert Grodner has since then engaged in a conflict of interest with his clients, has abandoned his clients, has engaged in false billing, has engaged in a fraud upon his clients, provided ineffective assistance of counsel, and has engaged in a "fraud upon the court".
Is it not also fraud when attorney Jay Grodner does not inform his clients, or clients to be, of his previous discipline?
Looks like Grodner will soon need to go find a new career. But I don't think he's gonna like his new boss:
Update: Linda at Something and Half of Something has located a photo of Jay the Giant Douche Grodner. Eww... Don't make Linda mad, she's got connections...
And it gets more gross. From his dating profile:
I love sex. I'm wild about so many ways that sex makes life worth living. I joined this site because the women I'm seeing are both beautiful and adventurous. I have plenty of work a free time to talk. someone needs to act.
So ladies, I'm curious...would you?
BTW, did not see "keying cars, pissing off Marines or whining like a little bitch" as any of his hobbies...
Sondra K has the "photoshop of the day". Looks like Grodner "$%#&ed with the wrong Marine"!
