Erika Jayne & Tom Girardi, Frozen Assets, A criminal Investigation, & more.
So much has happened since last week. Tom Girardi & Erika Jayne have had their assets frozen by a Federal Court. That same Judge referred the case for criminal investigation and the US Attorney’s office has moved the court for documents to be released to their office. If that wasn’t enough a new judgment was entered against Tom for $7.5 Million and another court issued an attachment order to secure a $5.8Million Judgement. THEN…. Girardi’s former business partner Robert Keese filed two lawsuits. There is so much going on.

The Erika Jayne, Tom Girardi Federal Lawsuit & Divorce
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Erika Jayne first caught our attention with eye-popping club music like Pretty Mess, Painkiller, and How Many Fu*ks. She has been on RHBH since 2015. Her husband is well-known attorney Tom Girardi who had numerous billion-dollar wins and settlements and whose PG&E case was made famous in the movie Erin Brockovich. Erika Girardi surprised everyone when she filed for divorce in November 2020. At that time it resurfaced that she had stated that she doesn’t have a prenup with Tom. A month later they were both sued in Federal Court alleging that Tom Girardi and his law firm Girardi Keese embezzled funds from the families of Lion Air crash victims whom he represented. The suit goes on to allege that the divorce is a sham to hide assets as the Firm Girardi Keese struggles to pay these clients, the firms debts, and to stay operational.

In a lengthy ruling in the Johnny Depp v.

Election Lawsuit Updates & Thanksgiving
Since last week shit has popped off! I really didn’t want to cover the election lawsuits again. But it’s as crazy as Suenami 2020 and even though most of the lawsuits have been dismissed it hasn’t stopped the Trump legal team from leveraging massive allegations, then disavowing one of their own. I don’t even know how to summarize it. I am frustrated at this point. We should be moving closer to the end of this election, the funds have been released for the presidential transition, lawsuits have been dismissed. But no, we have larger allegations and intrigue within the Trump legal team. I am ready for some facts...and then some pumpkin pie.

The Election Lawsuits
Trump Election Lawsuits There is a lot happening in the election...still. I am breaking down the current lawsuits that are being waged in multiple states….you know, still. This episode was recorded before two different courts in Pennsylvania ruled against the Trump campaign in their allegations that vote counting was not properly observed and that the elections officials properly handled the election observation process. At the end of the day these legal processes will play out, the election results will be certified. Over 70 million people will be mad, hopefully, everyone will have a better understanding of how the court process works and we will still be facing a pandemic. Isn’t 2020 fun!

Rachel Hollis, Dave Hollis and Hollis Co. are being sued for Trademark Infringement over ‘Made for More’. With Rachel Hollis it’s not ‘wow she is getting sued’ it's more of ‘oh finally’.

If you are familiar with Rachel Hollis at all you have likely heard of her movie ‘Made for More’. She also sold Made for More merch on QVC and on her website.

Yelp Adds 'Racist Business' Alert.
Yelp has taken a broad step. Some praise the social activism, many wonder how this will impact affected businesses. The label first ask questions second approach yelp is taking is problematic. By Yelp’s statement is that the advisory will go up while Yelp is investigating. It is also made clear that this doesn’t have to be an issue with the business directly because it can also be with ‘someone associated with the business’. So if an off duty employee creates this issue…. And the business gets labeled, then what? My concern for businesses is that Yelp will label first, and it’s unclear how businesses can get these alerts removed. What we know about the court of public opinion is that it doesn’t matter what Yelps investigation finds, it matters that the accusation was placed on the business in the first place. RESOURCESVIDEOSCoffee Talk - Yelp labels businesses racistEpisode 17 Podcast -- Getting Sued Over Bad ReviewsARTICLESNew Consumer Alert on Yelp Takes Firm Stance Against Racism Poll: 62% of Americans Say They Have Political Views They’re Afraid to Share Merriam-Webster's current definition of racism Yelp Will Label Businesses Accused Of Racist Behavior Yelp adds alerts to business accused of racism Yelp introduces new 'business accused of racist behavior' consumer alert Competitor Click Fraud: A Case Study | The Click Fraud Blog Yelp to Publicly Shame Businesses 'Accused of Racist Behavior' Per Yelps blog;“At Yelp, we value diversity, inclusion and belonging, both internally and on our platform, which means we have a zero-tolerance policy to racism. We know these values are important to our users and now more than ever, consumers are increasingly conscious of the types of businesses they patronize and support. In fact, we’ve seen that reviews mentioning Black-owned businesses were up more than 617% this summer compared to last summer. Support for women-owned businesses has also increased, with review mentions up 114% for the same time period.The new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert is an extension of our Public Attention Alert that we introduced in response to a rise in social activism surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement. So far in 2020, we’ve seen a 133% increase in the number of media-fueled incidences on Yelp compared to the same time last year. Between May 26 and September 30, we placed more than 450 alerts on business pages that were either accused of, or the target of, racist behavior related to the Black Lives Matter movement. We have maintained around-the-clock support over the last few months to ensure that we’re maintaining the trust and safety of our users and business owners.If the business takes public corrective action, such as firing an offending employee, the alert will be downgraded to a Public Attention Alert, which warns users that “someone associated with the business was accused of, or the target of, racist behavior.”What do you think?

President Trump. Taxes, The Debate, and Covid.
President Trump has been busy. From that staggering Debate performance to the New York Times article about his taxes...to contracting COVID. It’s a lot. I find the Tax article in the New York Times to be the least shocking of everything. I found the Debate to be a steaming hot mess. Then there was COVID. The president continues to act like he is marketing a reality show on twitter while COVID fears still have some states locked down. I personally prefer the cautious management here in Tennessee to the authoritarian lockdown in California, but different populations will have different responses.

Kanye West v. The Music Industry
“I Think Prince and Mike was tryna warn me” - Kanye WestKanye West has taken up the personal mission to bring change to the oft-criticized music industry. He did so by taking to twitter, peeing on his grammy and exposing his own contracts. There are over a hundred pages of contracts on Twitter for all the world to see. Kanye has set forth a 7 point plan to ‘push the’ music industry into the 21st century’. He declared that he is the new Moses. But he isn’t wrong.

Cuties...the movie that cancelled Netflix.
Well, Twitter is all a…..well, a twitter, over the new Netflix movies ‘Cuties’. This is a French film that’s a Sundance award winner with a female director. However, it’s also very, very provocative and is either attempting to make a point, or is child pornography. The outrage was swift and by some accounts, Netflix has lost billions. I watched the film so we can have a chat, break down my thoughts, and talk about the legal standards of child pornography.

I hope that the most important thing that we take away from the Kenosha unrest is that making a decision about a situation in one or two sentences of a news headline is not the full picture. The media has been taking the Jacob Blake shooting and creating a narrative juxtaposing it to the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting. When the facts of these two situations are evaluated they are not the same in many regards. They are the same in that they are both avoidable. First, both situations are still under investigation and developing. Kyle Rittenhouse is in custody with murder charges (among others) pending. Jacob Blake is in the hospital paralyzed and recovering from 7 gunshot wounds. But let’s discuss the surrounding situations based on the information available. Jacob Blake has pending charges arising out of a sexual assault and domestic violence case. There seems to be a restraining order in relation to those charges. Jacob Blake showed up at the victims’ house, broke in, attempted to steal her car resulting in her calling the police. When the police showed up to arrest Jabob Blake with the outstanding warrant and apparently violated the restraining order. He then wouldn’t comply with the police was Tasered twice, and reached for a weapon whereupon he was shot. The circumstances surrounding this are avoidable. Kyle Rittenhouse at 17 decided to head into Kenosha, an already tense situation, with an AR15 that he wasn’t supposed to be carrying based on his age. He then stayed in the area late into the night, he wasn’t questioned about his weapon (though open carry laws mean that people were walking around legally carrying similar weapons), he kept moving with the crowds of protestors until there was a confrontation. What we know from the video is that a protester behind Kyle Rittenhouse fired a weapon and Kyle turned around and fired injuring a protestor. The crowd turned on Rittenhouse, he was knocked to the ground protestors attempted to disarm him and he killed two. He shouldn’t have had that weapon. He is too young to be trusted to make good decisions in a dangerous situation he put himself in. He made these decisions that ended the lives of two people, this doesn’t discount the decisions of the protestors who were attacking someone armed with an AR15 cause that seems like terrible decision making too. But the circumstances here were also avoidable.
