“Legal Insurrection, Professor Jacobson, and your readers, gave the family the support and the courage that they needed …. Every night, our trial team would read Legal Insurrection….”
Last night we had an hour-plus conversation with Lorna Gibson, and trial attorneys Lee Plakas and Owen Rarric.
It was our best event so far. We will post the full event video in the next few days.
But I wanted Legal Insurrection readers and commenters to hear the praise Lee and Lorna gave us. They read the posts nightly and gained strength from the comments.
Here’s this short excerpt from the event.
Lee Plakas, lead trial counsel:
We’d like to thank Professor Jacobson. And we’d like to thank all of the readers because although you did not know it at the time, and the time that this family was going through the challenge, Legal Insurrection, Professor Jacobson, and your readers gave the family the support and the courage that they needed to persevere in what literally was a David and Goliath battle. And you don’t know this, but every night, our trial team, before we would retire for the evening, and the evening wasn’t the evening, it was always two or three o’clock in the morning because as Professor Jacobson said, there was an onslaught of motions and efforts, and we had a billion dollar bully doing everything they possibly could to destroy this iconic bakery. So every night we actually would read Legal Insurrection because, and not because we had time on our hands, but because we knew that from the collective minds and observations of everybody, you were making comments. And we wanted to make sure that in this battle that we didn’t miss any nuance that one of your readers or Professor Jacobson may have identified. So we could incorporate it into our presentation. And because to be frank, we needed every advantage we could get ….
Lorna Gibson, wife of the late David Gibson:
… I do want to thank Legal Insurrection because you guys have been there from the start throughout this entire six years, and I really do appreciate all the coverage and just being there, it really helped for me to sit and look through all the comments and things every night. It gave me some hope. So thank you very much.
