Today’s episode features a deep dive into the Bivens action, with a little help from everyone’s favorite nutso conspiracy theorist lawyer, Larry Klayman — and his newest client, Roger Stone sidekick Jerome Corsi. Find out what sorts of wacky shenanigans these guys have been up to, and why they think they’ve hit a $350 million jackpot. (Hint: they haven’t.)
First, though, we begin with an insightful question from a listener regarding Clarence Thomas’s jurisprudence and whether the frequent criticism of Justice Thomas as lazy is tinged with racism.
During the main segment, it’s time for the breakdown of the latest Corsi lawsuit. It’s a doozy — it’s everything you’d expect from someone who hired Larry Klayman (on purpose!) to be his lawyer.
Then, we answer a fun listener question about court filings, time zones, and the international date line. It’s Around Opening Arguments In 80 Days!
After all that, it’s time for the answer to Thomas Takes The Bar Exam #108 regarding civil procedure. As always, remember to follow our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and like our Facebook Page so that you too can play along with #TTTBE!
