OLD FASHION WESTERN SHOWDOWN - STAPLETON VS. ROSENTHAL - WHICH AMBULANCE CHASER WILL WIN THE RACE?

SEE UPDATE BELOW: 

I am thinking about now, Ed Stapleton is rethinking his decision to put this story out  for public review.  This poor family is going to be dragged into court and destroyed as they are forced to explain conflicting affidavits.  And this family thought the Mexican legal system was messed up.
The election contest is going to be slow for a few days, so I need to do something to keep my readers entertained.

Basically what is happening is a spitting match between Ed Stapleton and Marc Rosenthal as to who will represent the family of Juan Pablo Perez Santillan who was allegedly killed by a US Border Patrol Agent.

Again, if you learn to read substantively and for motivation, when you read the above article you knew the attorney was Ed Stapleton.  The Herald knew the suit would cause anger among a lot of US Americans, so they left his name out.  He was too tied to the Yolanda Begum campaign and Daniel Cavasos did not want any last minute negative associations against Yolanda Begum

Some background first -  Mexican Consulates are known for choosing lawyers based on kickbacks.  Lawyers associate with the Mexican Consulates in hopes the Consulate will refer big money cases to a particular lawyer.  This was litigated in Dallas.

I have no idea who is lying.  I do believe the hearing which will occur on this mess on Monday is a good thing.  The assigned Magistrate Judge has ruled he is not playing and has ordered Stapleton, Rosenthal and the plaintiffs into court.  Let the axe and sanctions fall where they may.

Here is the lawsuit.

Here is where it smells bad.  Juan Pablo Perez Santillan was allegedly shot and killed on July 7, 2012.  A fight broke out between Stapleton and Rosenthal as to who will represent the family.  Ed Stapleton, in what every honest lawyer will call a pathetic and desperate act, ran to court and sued on behalf of the family on July 27. 2012.  No one does this.  Really, in 7  days he investigated the entire incident, noticed the government of his intent to file suit so as to provide them an opportunity to settle, and received a response.  Never happened.  What Ed Stapleton did was to run to court so as to protect his own interests.

THE FAMILY RESPONDS TO ED STAPLETON WITH A PRO SE MOTION TO DISMISS

You have to read the affidavits which were translated into English.  Monday's hearing will be a blood bath and end careers.  If the Magistrate Judge does his job, one of these two attorneys need to be referred for suspension of their privileges within the Southern District of Texas.

RIGHTFULLY SO, THE JUDGE SAYS - WAIT - NOT BEFORE HE HEARS IT FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH

Personally, I think this is the best thing for all concerned.  It is going to be a bloodbath and only one attorney will be left standing when it is all over.

Now remember, Ed Stapleton is the one who tried to get Robert Hedrick off on his child porn charges by arguing it is the community standard in Brownsville for its residents to view child pornography.  Integrity at its best.  So, why did Ed Stapleton run to court so fast to file this lawsuit?  Why did he look to the internet for a an incomplete story?  Trust me, I do not believe either side is clean on this one.

NOW YOU KNOW THE ENTIRE STORY

UPDATE: SINCE THE STAPLETON SUPPORTERS CANNOT LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE

This document is the pro se dismissal of the lawsuit David Willis filed for Ed Stapleton and this very unfortuntate family.  Again the affidavit is a killer.  I really did not want to bring David Willis into this because the battle is really between Stapleton and Rosenthal.  - But since they insist.

HERE IS THE LAWSUIT FILED BY DAVID WILLIS

You want to go down to Ed Stapleton's affidavit.  He states he has a contract with the Mexican Consulate to have these type cases sent to him.  See pg. 48, Wow - I do not know how things work in Mexico but in the US lawyers cannot contract with 3rd parties who are not lawyers to refer cases to them.

I decided that this part of the story created a distraction from my theme - Western Showdown.  It raises issues only the federal courts can deal with.  But since they insist - here is the lawsuit with Ed Stapleton's affidavit.

The above cause no. is 1:12-cv-00150. There is also a motion to dismiss filed in this case on behalf of Plaintiffs (or Rosenthal) for Plaintiffs (or Stapleton's or Willis's) case against Rosenthal. Confusing.
