Friday Poken Thread!

TGIF, everyone, and happy Cinco de Mayo!

Ok, it looks like there's a lot to talk about today.  I'll just throw some topics out there for everyone to run with.


Nevada State Bar members with addresses located in District 1 (aka Clark County) may select from the following nine candidates to fill the four open seats for the district. Ballots were distributed to Clark County members via e-mail. The following candidates are seeking a two-year term:
Each of the candidates' statements can be found here.

  2. The Shark Pimp comment was based on a news story from Channel 8. Go to Channel 8's website, 8newsnow.com I-Team Investigation Constable Turf Wars.

  3. "Dear Colleague, I would appreciate your consideration of my candidacy for re-relection to the State Bar Board of Governors. Thank you."

    Spell check much?

  4. Some of those who commented on the last post spoke of how they are nine-plus inches. Not sure if that is why they qualified to become a Super Lawyer.

    My issue is that I have the "irish curse"... in other words, we're talking less than 2 inches here.

    You think if I stuff a sock in my pants during my appearances that I might get more recognition.

    I really want to be a Super Lawyer!

  5. Really??? We're trying to run a classy establishment here!

  7. 11:28 obviously didn't go to BYU.

    Sadly, he fell short and had to go to UNLV.

  8. That's it!!!! From here on out, I'm stuff a sock in my pants during all my motion appearances and trials.

    I will be a Super Lawyer by year's end.

    If anyone has experience in this realm, would you please confirm that it is preferable that I not use dress socks but rather athletic tube socks since they are longer and thicker?

    For those who vote for Super Lawyers keep your eyes peeled on your fellow bar members so I get the requisite votes!

    I MUST BECOME THE SUPER LAWYER!

  9. I wish I could vote for Matlock

  10. I prefer a can of pringles over the tube socks. Granted, its not as comfortable, but it does make me truly feel like a superlawyer.

  11. @4:18:

    Protip: Swamp down south =/= superlawyer. Let the boys breathe!

  12. @ 10:09 LMAO. I have worked with E.B. several times and am not a fan. This makes me smile

  13. Strange. I am a Super Lawyer and don't even have a penis. They must have missed that.

  14. Anyone else read Tamer Botros candidate statement on the Bar website? He's been licensed here a year or less and "wishes to be a BOARD OF GOVERNOR and will do his very best as a BOARD OF GOVERNOR." Wow!! I think he is Latka Gravitz (Andy Kaufman in Taxi) reincarnated. Velcome to America my friend.

  15. 1:43 excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Have you ever met Tamer Botros? I think he would turn every BOARD OF GOVERNOR meeting into a party? He's like Steve Martin -- a wild and crazy guy!

  17. May 3, 2012 5:58 PM I regret you seem to be misinformed. Short version: the Laughlin Constable's Office has indeed been providing services to commercial clients on an increasing basis in Las Vegas Township. It is true that we provide service from an entrepreneurial perspective, not a public sector perspective. We work weekends, nights, and holidays. We will pick up. We accept service orders via e-mail. We will on request provide follow up confirmation of service. We will forward collected revenue promptly. We will not, as has happened in more than one case with the Las Vegas Constable's Office, tell an attorney that we refuse to execute a Writ of Attachment or Possession. We will not be unprofessional when executing service or writs.

    Your use of the term "attempted coup d'etat" was amusing and certainly attention getting, but hardly accurate. State law empowers Constables and their POST certified deputies with peace officer powers throughout the state. I understand and respect that there are some, who for reasons of political ideology, object to competition between government agencies. If you are one such person, I would point out that the Clinton Administration pioneered just that with the development of Federal Franchise Funds. Bottom line: we would not be getting the business, if clients felt that we were not offering better service.

    PS: Lou Toomin is not a Constable, nor a sworn Deputy Constable. He is the civilian public information officer in the Las Vegas Constable's Office.

  18. Lou Toomin is the worst spokesmodel for any organization ever. Seeing him prance around with a gun on his hip (hopefully unloaded a la Barney Fife) and his 70 year old ponytail is downright frightening. He is an old political crony of Bonaventura. Nobody is sure why the media liason/public information officer needs a gun to carry out his duties.

  25. Any guesses on how the State Bar is going to respond to Sandoval's Executive Order that professional licensing boards give military spouses reciprocity? My guess is a "Thanks for the suggestion. We'll be sure to take it up with the Judicial branch."

  26. Supreme Court has the passing list.
