You know how they always say bad news travels faster than good news? The same is true of vile rumors. If you have never had a person insidiously and determinedly try to destroy your reputation, spreading the most disgusting and unspeakable lies imaginable, then count yourself lucky.
Somebody tried to do this to me. I am in the process of having him disbarred as an attorney in the State of California. This effort may succeed. It may also fail. All I know is that the matter is under review. So yes, he absolutely has a motive to do me harm and take me down. Short of murder-suicide (he murders me, then commits suicide using the same gun) I don’t see any outcome that would make me reconsider my decision. The rumors are so vulgar and horrible as to be ridiculous. Nobody who knows me at all could take them seriously.
People like this man should not be practicing law in any state of this country.
I am sorry to have to waste four paragraphs discussing this matter. Fun and quirky post coming up again soon, I hope.
