Soggy Monday


  • Not necessarily related to the firm, but we got a tip that the Alverson Taylor building is for sale. Anyone know the details? [LoopNet]
  • Several of you alerted us to case A-732871.
  • A law meant to give more voters a voice ended up doing the opposite. [RJ]
  • Revisiting construction defect law a year after AB 125. [Vegas Inc.]

  1. Did they seal off the dungeon in the basement where the associates are tortured if they don't meet their billables?

  2. Did AT own the building?

  3. I assume Bruce is retiring and the remaining partners don’t want to pay him rent for that horribly dated building.

    1. Bruce and Harry are retiring at the same time? I knew where there was smoke there had to be fire.

    1. Try this A-16-732871-C it is Victoria Eure, Plaintiff vs. Eric Roy, ESQ, Defendant

    2. Just read the Amended Complaint. The reference to an alleged lost erection is irrelevant to the claim and seems to be quite viciously gratuitous.

    3. The necessity of discussing sexual intercourse and the erection issue is immaterial, impertinent, or scandalous matter. Lets see if Judge Israel slaps back against such pleading as being out of bounds.

    4. I'm pretty sure that Adam already did the math and can afford the sanction, or he wouldn't have filed it, as is. My question is: how do you not settle this BEFORE it gets here?

    5. question: an attorney doesn't have to report wrong doing by another attorney unless he knows it to be true, right? What if your client is asserting allegations like drug use about another attorney. You don't know it to be true, but obviously you have rule 11 governing the filing of the pleading. Any obligation to tattle on the offending attorney?

    6. Maybe the loss of erection was her fault and will be used to mitigate damages????

      Last question: How many DOES and ROES does any erection need?

  5. I don't know what's funnier...Eric Roy being put on blast or the fact that its Kutner's office that's suing him... LOL

  6. Perhaps someone can be nice enough and post the amended complaint for the rest of class?

    2. Try the shorter version that redirects to the above without line wrapping: http://bit.ly/1XroFto

    3. 11:53am here... thank you very much!

    4. Those links may be the only instance of the Complaint on the internet, since Judge Israel granted Roy's motion, struck the complaint, and expunged it from the record.

  7. At least the Listing of the AT Building is honest.... There is a reception area, there are 2 offices and the rest of the building is unmentionable.

    1. Dungeon below and veal-fattening pens above.

    2. It's actually only 1 office shown - they did 2 views of Bruce's office. They also put some fabulous filters on those photos to hide the dinginess of the reception area.

      Delete
  8. Non-equity AT partners found out from outside sources who saw the listing. No heads up.

  9. As a CD lawyer, the past year of AB 125 has brought very little actual change to the industry. the biggest thing took effect a few weeks ago which is a 6 year statute of limitation instead of 10-12 years.

  10. Article about Bruce and LeAnn at his fly-fishing lodge. Wonder if that's for sale too?

  11. Another NV law firm bites the dust, darn.

    1. The ad indicates that the building has a tenant with five years left on the lease. So in theory the law firm just gets a new landlord for the next five years assuming they don't implode. At least that is how I would read it.

      Delete
    2. For the sake of truth in advertising, maybe the ad should read: ...building has a tenant with five years left on the lease... assuming they don't implode...

      But that might not help make the sale!

      On the other hand, there is a 28,000 sq ft building just a few miles away listed for $5.5 million....but it just does not look like a "Gentleman's Club".

  12. That Roy complaint is undignified and unbefitting of the profession. As others said, the prurient aspects of the complaint were superfluous to the complaint and were clearly added just to make the complaint appeal to tabloid interests. It reminds me of the mediator a number of years back who got a lot of blow back for allegedly commenting on the size of an attorney's key body part.

    1. Well, that's what you get for owning "territorial" dogs, I guess. And for not settling.

    2. That's what you get for throwing a bunch of billboards up in a town with "territorial" advertisers.

    3. Guess Adam Kutner is jealous... apparently Eric Roy is quicker than Adam is...

      Delete
    4. So is it implied that he sent Big Boy in there in retaliation for the loss of the erection? Is that why it is not superfluous? But maybe that would be a different claim for relief.

      Delete
    5. Based on when the incident happened and when the complaint was filed I doubt there was much effort on trying to settle this case pre-suit. This just looks like a personal vendetta.

  13. "blow back", heh? Interesting choice of words there!

  14. I wonder if Roy got up and left the room to get more Viagra...

  15. Are Bruce and LeAnn a couple? Isn't she decades younger than him? Gross

  16. Is AT a partnership or is it just Bruce Ltd and the rest are employees or contractors of some kind.

  17. 10 million for that dump. Wowser, who is in? We are taking anonymous bids.

  19. Wait, so it was the dog that was named "Big Boy"?

  20. 2:33 "unbefitting of the profession" hahaha this must be your first year in practice my friend - big boy had more integrity than most PI attorneys and I'm not talking about the dog

  21. Not a huge fan of Roy or Kutner, but that pleadings as atrocious and unnecessary. Quite frankly, if I were the judge... I'd consider a pretty severe sanction. In a "notice" pleading jurisdiction, there was no place for and no merit in, including those "allegations."

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry still don't know what this case is about. Post complaint here or fill in the blanks. Let us all know. Tidbits about something outrageous but nothing more.
