Can't Baez get away with slandering and defaming GA all over that book so long as Baez includes phrases that make it clear he is only repeating and commenting on what KC said..phrases such as "Casey sobbed when she talked about the time her father, the pervert, made her....blah blah blah" ???
Just asking. :truce:
Well, if he's just quoting Casey, I wouldn't say "getting away with" defamation so much as "not" defaming. But then I'm a lawyer.
Oh wait a minute, I came back to edit...I just saw a "tweet" that said FCA signed a waiver with Jose that allowed him to write these new lies, excuse me, details in his book. Is that really legal? Can she really allow attorney/client privilege to be exempt for profit?
Yes, she can. But hopefully she had separate counsel to represent her regarding the waiver (Cheney?), and hopefully that separate counsel advised her about the potential pitfalls (like being called a mentally ill liar in JB's book), and hopefully she was paid for the waiver (because JB should never have accepted it if she wasn't getting anything in return).
Otherwise there could be some lawyers in ethical trouble. Well, obviously not in Florida, but in some hypothetical other state.
Yeah, I just saw that on Local 6 WKMG here, that she had signed a waiver so he could write a book.
Must've been BEFORE she fired him. Heh.
Sorry, forgot this was the lawyer discussion thread, didn't mean to sidetrack it.
But I have to mention.... I tweeted Adam Longo and told him to add a Caveat - that Baez was repeating the words of a convicted liar, so their believability was questionable.
And he hasn't tweeted since. hehehe
Musikman! You're alive!! :rocker:
