UPDATED, 5/20/14, 10:45 AM -- New mailer from Sue Lowden pounds Mark Hutchison for dishonesty on Obamacare, continuing social media campaign. It's attached here. Ah, the lieutenant governor's race: So elevating. Mark Hutchison says Sue Lowden "had a hand in passing Obamacare," which may be the most ridiculous claim of a ridiculous season. See his recent mail pieces here. And her latest spot tries -- tries! -- to exploit Hutchison's creation of the "personal injury lawyer" issue. But not...
Clark County, which is subverting the intent of the law by awarding medical pot licenses before the state can act, can choose locations but not who gets into the business. That's the word Monday from state officials in a memo sent out to a listserv and celebrated by state medical pot guru Tick Segerblom, the senator who sponsored the legislation. "This was the original intent of SB 374," he told me via Twitter. I previously reported that Clark County had moved ahead of the state. The key part...
A few years ago, I walked into the Stirling Club bar at the exclusive Turnberry Towers. Jay Brown was already there, waiting for me. The lobbyist extraordinaire had invited me to discuss a column I had written that he said he could persuade me was wrong. As I approached, I noticed in the center of the table was a bill – a $100 bill. “If I can’t convince you by the end of this conversation that I’m right, you can put that in your pocket,” he told me. I shook my head, told him to put the money...
The headline surely was not what Team Sandoval wanted to see: "Nevada GOP Gov. Brian Sandoval is popular, but not within his party" I thought the L.A. Times story itself was pretty good for Sandoval. Mark Barabak did a great job of capturing the governor's deliberative, careful and moderate style while finding only taxaphobic Grover Norquist and a Nevada-based Norquistian who despises the governor to criticize him. The headline referred to national Republicans, who may not want Sandoval on a...
RJ columnist Steve Sebelius was first to give this bizarre column more widespread currency. State Bar boss Alan Lefebvre essentially argues that AG Catherine Cortez Masto should have contineud to defend the gay marriage ban, and then concluded: "I know one thing for certain; when this is all over, somebody in the federal government owes an apology to the State of Deseret.” What? I'm not the only one befuddled. As you can see from the attached documents, at least one lawyer eviscerated the...
UPDATE, 9:15 AM, 5/15/14: A state Bar official informs me that the Rule 1.8 (i) of the Rules of Professional Conduct may come into play here: 1.8 (i) A lawyer shall not acquire a proprietary interest in the cause of action or subject matter of litigation the lawyer is conducting for a client, except that the lawyer may: (1) Acquire a lien authorized by law to secure the lawyer’s fee or expenses; and (2) Contract with a client for a reasonable contingent fee in a civil...
UPDATED WITH VIDEO VERSION BELOW Maybe it’s frontrunner, gubernatorial anointee arrogance. Maybe it’s polling that shows him well ahead. Maybe he doesn’t know what his own law firm does. But state Sen. Mark Hutchison’s sprint away from the “personal injury lawyer” label was at first comical, but now borders on the pathological. Ordinarily, I would chuckle at this kind of gaffe. But because Hutchison has insisted on dissembling about this area of his practice, which his partner boasts about on...
