A very important part of this case is the time. Each side has 61 hours and 15 minutes to try their case. At the end of Week 5, Depp's team had 10 more hours of time to finish presenting their case and rebuttal case. This case has been so interesting. Connect With Me.

Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard Trial Week 4 Review
52:41
Check out our sponsor Backbone! https://playbackbone.com/lawnerd (https://playbackbone.com/lawnerd)  Before the court was dark for a week, Amber Heard was on the stand at the end of week 4 of the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard Defamation Trial. During this week, we heard from Depp security team member Travis McGivern, Depp's agent Jack Whigham, a damages expert Richard Marks, Social Medial Expert Douglass Bania, Nurse Erin Falati, and Forensic Accountant Michael Spindler. Then Depp's team rested their case in chief, and Amber Heard’s team brought a motion to strike Depp’s claims which were denied for two claims and taken under submission by the court for one claim, which will likely be denied later. With that, it began Amber Heard's case with Clinical and Forensic Psychologist Dr. Dawn Hughes, whose testimony was overshadowed by evidentiary issues. Finally, Amber Heard was called to the stand by her attorney, who called her Laura Amber Heard and not Amber Laura Heard… and that is where week four ended.

Amber Heard Trial Week 3 has concluded. Johnny Depp has finished his testimony and his case is rounding towards its close, the end of Depp’s testimony was powerful, “Tell the world, Johnny, tell them, I Johnny Depp, a man, I too am a victim of domestic violence”, Amber Heard. Depp responded, “I said ‘Yes, I am”. It was powerful testimony that will likely be remembered as the key piece of testimony from Week 3. But it wasn’t the only powerful testimony, Dr. Shannon Curry, forensic psychologist, testified to diagnosing Amber Heard with Borderline Personality Disorder and Histrionic Personality Disorder. We also got colorful testimony from Alejendaro Romero who testified about not seeing injuries on Heard, and how stressful the case has been for him then, finally, he vapped and drove off. This case has had some very interesting moments…are you watching?  Resources Media Links Link to Monty Python Witch Sketch https://youtu.be/yp_l5ntikaU (https://youtu.be/yp_l5ntikaU)  Podcast Links Johnny Depp Playlist https://player.captivate.fm/collection/d1f54541-84b5-44e4-90d9-479b487958c5 (https://player.captivate.fm/collection/d1f54541-84b5-44e4-90d9-479b487958c5)  YouTube Links Johnny Depp Trial Coverage. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gKWqg9kHsVUYZ3amSMwoyk0 (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gKWqg9kHsVUYZ3amSMwoyk0)  Johnny Depp Trial Shorts https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7pGyYaOMsJv1tlPNBgAG2Q/featured (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7pGyYaOMsJv1tlPNBgAG2Q/featured)

Amber Heard is underway. Today’s episode is a case brief breaking down the causes of action in this defamation case. There has been quite a lot of litigation in this case leading up to it getting to court for trial. This trial has very high stakes for both parties, a star-studded witness list, and a lot of evidence. The estimates for this trial are that evidence will take six weeks. Johnny Depp has sued Amber Heard for defamation over an OpEd she published without naming him, he is seeking $50 million in damages. Amber Heard has counter sued Depp for defamation for statements his lawyer made calling her statements that she was battered by Depp a hoax, she is seeking $100 million in damages. This jury is in for a whirlwind trial. Thankfully for us, there will be cameras in the courtroom and I will be following along. Connect With Me.

Thank you to our Sponsor Manscaped!  Use code LawNerd to get 20% off and Free Shipping. https://www.manscaped.com (Https://www.manscaped.com)  We are now over a week out of the Oscars and the fallout from Will Smith slapping Chris Rock on stage isn’t over. From what happened to what the potential legal consequences are it’s time to break it down. Plus, if you were wondering about the difference between Assault and Battery, legally, I’ve got you.  If you’ve been following my coverage of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial you know that I was concerned about the motion for New Trial based on Juror 50’s failure to disclose his past experiences when directly asked on the questionnaire. However, the Judge found that Juror 50 testified credibly, that the failure to disclose was a mistake and not deliberate and that he was not biased against Maxwell and therefore would not have been struck for cause. For those reasons the Court denied the motion and reaffirmed that the sentencing will move forward.  Resources Will Packer GMA Interview https://youtu.be/n_GPil88PmM (https://youtu.be/n_GPil88PmM)  Heather McDonald Podcast https://youtu.be/eZYLow5Lnps (https://youtu.be/eZYLow5Lnps) Connect With Me.

He reports her missing to the police. She was missing for 22 days before she was located in Yolo County. An investigation ensued and, according to new court filings, that investigation lead to the conclusion that Sherri Papini didn’t get kidnapped at all. New court filings charge Papini with lying to investigators and mail fraud related to funds taken from the California Victim Compensation Board. It’s alleged that Papini received over $30,000 from the CVCB. The complaint details the numerous statements made by Papini and that she was confronted by investigators with evidence that she had lied and doubled down. This is just the beginning of the prosecution. Papini faces up to 25 years in federal prison in addition to over $50,000 in fines.   ResourcesMedia Links https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/crime/article259049303.html (https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/crime/article259049303.html)   https://www.kron4.com/news/california/sherri-papini-faked-her-own-kidnapping-feds-say/ (Sherri Papini faked her own kidnapping, feds say | KRON4)  Connect With Me.

On March 11, 2022, Smollett was sentenced after the Judge stated to Smollett “you’re just a charlatan pretending to be a victim of a hate crime, and that’s shameful.” The Judge further stated that Smollett has “done real damage to victims of hate crimes” and that he “lied and kept lying”. The Judge sentenced Smollett to 150 days in jail, 30 months of Felony probation, a fine of $25,000, and restitution of a little over $130,000 to the city of Chicago reduced for the $10,000 in forfeited bail bond that Smollett previously paid. On March 16, 2022, the Appellate Court granted Smollett’s request to stay (pause) his sentence pending appeal and he was released from custody.

Brad Pitt has now sued Angelina Jolie for selling her ownership in the winery to Tenute del Mondo—a subsidiary of Stoli Group, after breaking off talks with Pitt to sell her interest to him. Pitt’s complaint alleges that the sale has wreaked havoc on the operations of the Miraval winery and that Jolie’s former company is seeking to take over operations and alleges that it’s gone so far as to ask for the business bank accounts to be frozen.   It’s going to be an interesting battle between these two and their companies.  Want to see the video breakdown of this one? https://youtu.be/AwwLbAsM4Yg Connect With Me.

Lead Actor and Producer Alec Baldwin was approximately four feet from Hutchins on set with a replica revolver that was loaded with a live bullet. Director Joel Souza was also shot and injured when the bullet passed through Hutchins. Since the shooting multiple lawsuits have been filed, Alec Baldwin has made numerous statements and appeared in an https://youtu.be/e6JN2j2aWYQ (ABC Special )talking through his perspective of events on set and when the shooting happened.  From there, numerous lawsuits were filed, a police investigation began, https://youtu.be/O-UEducflsg (search warrants) were issued.  The Sheriff’s and District Attorney in New Mexico have repeatedly stated that the investigation into the death of Halyna Hutchins is ongoing.  Halyna Hutchins husband and son have now filed a wrongful death lawsuit naming producers, production companies, Baldwin, and those in charge of the props and weapons. This suit includes some details we have seen before in other lawsuits and some that are new.  From my perspective it’s clear that there was negligence on someone's part, otherwise, a live round wouldn’t have ended up on the movie set and in the prop weapon, therefore this tragedy wouldn’t have taken place. Though the criminal investigation is still open I am not surprised that the wrongful death lawsuit is underway.  ResourcesOther Podcast Episodes covering the Rust Lawsuits - https://feeds.captivate.fm/getlegitshow/rusttragedycollection My YouTube Playlist of Rust Lawsuits https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJRVvIIF9jT5PfqCzlSMiib (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJRVvIIF9jT5PfqCzlSMiib)  Connect With Me.

Today's Sponsor: Go to https://www.manscaped.com (https://www.manscaped.com) and used code LAWNERD to get 20% Off Well, this is the one where Alec Baldwin sucks. Alec Baldwin has been sued for Defamation for calling a woman on social media an insurrectionist when he forwarded her social media post showing her attending the January 6th, 2021 demonstration at the Washington Monument. The Alec Baldwin lawsuits continue with this new defamation lawsuit. This lawsuit has some struggles and I will break those down with the law that applies.  It will be very interesting to see what will happen from here. I worry that the polarization of this lawsuit will outshine the underlying facts. Will we start seeing more lawsuits for behavior on social media? At what point are people responsible for their audience's actions? What do you think?  Connect With Me.

In a detailed ruling, the court has rejected Prince Andrew’s motion to dismiss the civil sexual assault lawsuit brought against him by Virginia Guffrie who alleges she was trafficked to Prince Andrew by Jeffery Epstein. Even though this ruling is fairly standard it seems to have triggered a large response from The Queen who stripped Prince Andrew of his titles, and he will no longer be able to call himself HRH. This suit has a long way to go and the challenges from Prince Andrew are far from over, but this early litigation gave us some clear indication of how the defense will be attacking this suit.  ResourcesMedia Links https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-59874170 (Prince Andrew: Emily Maitlis says duke's interview answers are critical to sex assault case - BBC News)   https://www.firstpost.com/world/whos-virginia-giuffre-and-what-are-her-allegations-against-britains-prince-andrew-10281321.html (https://www.firstpost.com/world/whos-virginia-giuffre-and-what-are-her-allegations-against-britains-prince-andrew-10281321.html)  YouTube Links Ghislaine Maxwell Case Playlist - https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gL31tnzpu6Du3wLHoQRaIq8 (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gL31tnzpu6Du3wLHoQRaIq8)  Connect With Me.

Alec Baldwin, Lies About the Search Warrant?
45:47
Today's Sponsor | Use Code LawNerd for 20% off + Free Shipping at https://www.manscaped.com (https://www.Manscaped.com)  On December 16, 2021, the Santa Fe Sheriff’s obtained a search warrant for the cell phone of Alec Baldwin. The Search Warrant still hasn’t been executed and Baldwin is still in possession of his phone. On January 7, 2022, the Los Angeles Times and other outlets reported statements by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department and the District Attorney saying that they are still working to execute the search warrant and obtain Alec Baldwin’s phone. Not to be outdone Alec Baldwin took to Instagram to say that all reports that he hasn’t complied with the search warrant are lies and he fully intends to comply….later. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this.  Key Take-Aways? Alec Baldwin’s cellphone has not to be taken by Santa Fe Police subject to their Search Warrant and reports that he hasn’t turned over his phone are true. Alec Baldwin’s legal team can ensure that Law Enforcement properly executes any Search Warrant, but also he can comply and then fight the evidence obtained in court later.  Baldwin will not stop talking about this case and it isn’t helping him. What happens next?  The Search Warrant will be executed in New York as the investigation continues. There may or may not be criminal charges in this case. The Civil lawsuits are ongoing.  ResourcesPodcast Links https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/baldwin-bonus-episode-place/ (https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/baldwin-bonus-episode-place/)  https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/alecbaldwininterview/ (https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/alecbaldwininterview/)  https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/rustshooting2/ (https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/rustshooting2/)  YouTube Links Search Warrant Video: https://youtu.be/WLxW8bFTrJA (https://youtu.be/WLxW8bFTrJA)  Baldwin ABC Interview Breakdown: https://youtu.be/e6JN2j2aWYQ (https://youtu.be/e6JN2j2aWYQ)  Civil Suit Breakdown: https://youtu.be/onFOww7XfHY (https://youtu.be/onFOww7XfHY)  Liability Review: https://youtu.be/BNTzFq_tgqI (https://youtu.be/BNTzFq_tgqI)  Other Rust Coverage: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJRVvIIF9jT5PfqCzlSMiib (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJRVvIIF9jT5PfqCzlSMiib)  Observe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzMvqwt21xqm7Fg5Uo3lsRQ (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzMvqwt21xqm7Fg5Uo3lsRQ) Connect With Me.

AstroWrold Tragedy | Congressional Investigation, Dismissal Request, and Travis Scott’s Interview
51:40
The Astroworld tragedy has spawned hundreds of lawsuits, a Congressional investigation, and another celebrity interview set against a background of litigation. I was very surprised to learn in the Congressional letter that there are reports that Live Nation is alleged to be withholding pay from employees until they sign a new employment agreement that includes a new release of liability….seriously.  Travis Scott’s legal team has also started filing answers to the lawsuits and has asked for cases to be dismissed. There was a lot made in the media about these requests to dismiss but they are just the next proper legal step in these cases. There is a lot to talk about with the interview because Travis Scott said a lot of words….but didn’t say much. Key Takeaways It’s being alleged that Live Nation is withholding pay from employees until they sign a new employment agreement that includes a new release of liability provision Congress wants to know why the concert wasn’t stopped sooner and what could have been done to prevent this tragedy Travis Scott says he was told to end the concert and did so. Travis Scott states that he relied on the professionals and feels responsible to get to the bottom of what happened. He did not say that he feels personally responsible as an artist.  Previous Videoshttps://youtu.be/Y8nkpmTecDI (https://youtu.be/Y8nkpmTecDI)  https://youtu.be/5yA-LPeb23Y (https://youtu.be/5yA-LPeb23Y)  https://youtu.be/h9SLjFXr76Q (https://youtu.be/h9SLjFXr76Q)  Get the Members Only ‘I Have Thoughts Podcast https://www.LawNerdsUnite.com (https://www.LawNerdsUnite.com) Join the Text Crew  https://http://www.textemily.com (www.TextEmily.Com) Looking for the YouTube videos?  https//http://www.watchemily.com (www.WatchEmily.com) Want to connect with Emily More?  https://http://www.instagram.com/theemilydbaker (www.Instagram.com/theemilydbaker)  I do share things on Twitter too! https://www.twitter.com/theemilydbaker (https://www.twitter.com/theemilydbaker )

Shocking Details from The Girardi Lawyers Contempt Hearing plus EXCLUSIVE Tom Girardi Voicemails
01:00:51
Federal Judge Durkin is not having any of the Tom Girardi BS. In December 2020 Edelson PC filed their lawsuit against Tom Girardi, Girardi Keese, Erika Girardi, and her companies, former Girardi Keese lawyers Keith Griffin and David Lira. That is the lawsuit that alleges a 20 million dollar loan from Girardi Keese to Erika Girardi, that the divorce was a shame and that the victims are widows and orphans. That same day Edelson PC also filed their Motion for Rule to Show Cause asking the court to enter an order; 1) requiring Girardi Keese to show cause why7 it should not be held in contempt for violating the Court’s orders relating to the settlement of [the six lion air client cases], and 2) granting any such further relief as it deems reasonable and just. The court seems focused on further relief after already holding Tom Girardi and Girardi Keese in contempt. At the end of three days of evidentiary hearings, the court asked the lawyers to further brief on “[d]o I have the power to order you to pay the clients not because you violated a court order but because in failing to come to me you caused the plaintiffs to lose that money”. It seems that at least as to the Lion Air clients there are court proceedings moving forward strongly focused on how to make the clients, whose settlements weren’t paid too, whole. Remember, this is the Judge who forwarded this incident to Federal Prosecutors, and we know they have at least opened an investigation because Federal Prosecutors filed a motion asking the court for access to unsealed documents. What do you think will happen next?   Key Take-Aways Federal Judge Durkin is focused on if he can sanction former Girardi Keese lawyers Keith Griffin and David Lira and possibly Edelson PC as a firm or its lawyers for not bringing issues with Tom Girardi not paying clients of the Lion Air case to the court.   Tom Girardi Exclusive Voice Mails Tom is heard over two voicemails left for attorney Jay Edelson after the filing of the Motion for Rule to Show Cause saying: “I’m a good guy, get along great with all the Judges, I can do some real good shit but I want to make sure that you know we’d be joined at the hip” and “I want to be in charge of all your shit and at the end of about nine months I want you to say ‘God Tom, you made me another Million’”.  During Testimony during Day 3 of the contempt hearing Jay Edelson testified that Tom Girardi had called him repeatedly after the Motion for Rule to Show Cause was filed and that Tom indicated he could make him a ton of money because of his connections with Judges in California, and that the whole thing was ‘beyond unseemly’.   What Happens Next? The lawyers for former Girardi Keese lawyers Keith Griffin and David Lira and the lawyers for Edelson PC will submit a briefing to the court about if the court can impose sanctions not for violating the court order, which Tom Girardi, has already been held in contempt for…but for not bringing it to the courts' attention sooner.  They will also be submitting a chart breaking down the Girardi Keese client IOLTA account to see what happened with the settlement money after Boeing funded the settlements in March 2020. Seeing what happened with that money will be very interesting. The court will rule on the Sanctions and contempt. Sanctions may be possible, but contempt here is unlikely.  The lawsuit filed by Edelson PC against the lawyers and Erika Girardi is still moving forward in Illinois and will continue forward into discovery. And of course….Season 12 of Real Housewives will still feature Erika Girardi… Connect With Me.

Britney is Free, The first Rust Lawsuit is filed, plus Astroworld Updates.

It’s been a busy few weeks in the law. Today I cover the Britney Spears conservatorship that has finally ended, the Kyle Rittenhouse trial that is now with the jury, the first lawsuit is filed in the Rust tragedy, and the updates on the Astroworld lawsuits. When I started covering the Britney Spears conservatorship case two years ago I was unsure if Britney would be able to get out of this conservatorship. Four months ago her new attorney Rosengart changed everything. It’s so nice to see her finally get justice. The Rust lawsuits are starting and there will be more to follow, but not as many as I am expecting in the Astroworld tragedy.  Resources YouTube Links Britney Spears Playlist https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJ8VMtz1l47SikJSOpcAweL (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJ8VMtz1l47SikJSOpcAweL) The Emily Show Playlist https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gIDlvjSCCcZuiJm-Z54nQKR (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gIDlvjSCCcZuiJm-Z54nQKR)  Get the Members Only ‘I Have Thoughts' Podcast https://www.LawNerdsUnite.com (https://www.LawNerdsUnite.com) Join the Text Crew https://http://www.textemily.com (www.TextEmily.Com) Looking for the YouTube videos? https//http://www.watchemily.com (www.WatchEmily.com) Want to connect with Emily More? https://http://www.instagram.com/theemilydbaker (www.Instagram.com/theemilydbaker)  I do share things on Twitter too! https://www.twitter.com/theemilydbaker (https://www.twitter.com/theemilydbaker)

As the world, the Free Britney movement, and I brace for the November 12, 2021 court date let’s chat about what has been happening in court running up to this date and what can happen. First, the court is being asked to terminate the 13-year conservatorship of Britney Spears.

Liability, Alec Baldwin, and the Rust Movie Set Tragedy.

Brian Laundrie is identified but questions remain
25:45
The Gabby Petito case has captivated attention worldwide. Since her disappearance was reported on September 11, 2021 attention was split between finding Gabby and wanting to know what Brian Laundrie, the last person who saw her alive, has to say. The search for Gabby Petito ended with finding her remains on September 19, 2021.

The Alex Murdaugh Story. Embezzlement, Fraud, a Hitman and unsolved crimes.

The fall from grace of South Carolina Lawyer Alex Murdaugh is simply wild. From embezzlement, and a hitman insurance fraud plot, to numerous unsolved murders and missing client funds.

Lawyer Reacts | Freeing Britney Spears
36:50
We know from leaked court documents in multiple documentaries that Britney has been fighting behind the scenes since the beginning of her conservatorship. On June 23, 2021, Britney Spears spoke in open court from the heart. She wanted the world to hear her, and the world did. This is not the first time Britney has made these pleas to the court, but it's the first time that the entire world heard it in real-time, and I think that made all the difference in the world. Today I am taking the reports coming out of court from Twitter particularly from Britney Law Army who did tremendous work bringing the world the information from Court on September 29, 2021.

James Spears is embedded in the Britney Spears conservatorship like an Alabama tick. Britney’s lawyer Rosengart refers to James Spears' efforts to remain as lingering, I see it as a festering. Either Way the writing is on the wall for this Conservatorship and having James Spears removed is priority number one for Britney’s legal team. In new court filings on September 27, 2021, Britney’s legal team refers to the revelations from Controlling Britney Spears and how far off the rails the conservatorship has gone.

The LuLaRich Documentary & The LuLaRoe Lawsuits

From butter-soft leggings to a myriad of lawsuits LuLaRich covers the rise and fall of MLM company LuLaRoe. Multi-Level Marketing companies often have to fight the stereotype of being a pyramid scheme, and LuLaRoe was sued by the Secretary of State of Washington State for being a Pyramid scheme and the company ended up settling the suit for 4.75 Million Dollars and a consent decree governing their practices. They are in a lawsuit with their main supplier and numerous suits with their own consultant retailers who lost so much buying into LuLaRoe. The story is captivating and sad with plenty of toxic positivity to go around. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Where in the world is John Pierce. The craziest legal disappearing act.

“...and bad mistakes, I’ve made a few” -Queen.   In late August and early September attorney John Pierce who is known for formerly representing Kyle Rittenhouse and 17 defendants in the January 6th cases, but now known for going missing...absolutely missing. Not only did he go missing but the individual standing in for him in court and in defense-related legal hearings is not an attorney and it’s unclear if they will become an attorney based on their own pending criminal cases. The entire circumstance around the reports about this attorney are wild and I will be following up on this story. NOTE- Since recording this podcast John Pierce has reportedly filed a notice with several courts saying that he was hospitalized for 12 days, but not stating why.

Suing Hollywood | Scarlet Johansson sues Disney, Bam v. MTV
01:10:28
It’s Hollywood Baby! Hollywood has allure and magic but it also has a dark side. This episode covers how the sausage gets made. Scarlet Johansson sues Disney over her contract regarding the distribution of Black Widow. She is arguing that her contract was based on a wide theatrical release like other Marvel movies, what Disney did was release the movie in Theaters and on Disney+ Streaming the same day, without renegotiating the contract.  Bam Margera is suing Paramount and Jackass co-star Johnny Knoxville over a wellness agreement that he argues he was forced to sign. The wellness agreement includes very specific provisions regarding Bam’s continued sobriety.  The thing about contracts is that they should be enforced.  RESOURCES https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/disney-co-s-covid-excuse-scarlett-johansson-lawsuit-darkly-comical-ncna1275840 (Disney Co.'s Covid excuse in Scarlett Johansson lawsuit is darkly comical and clearly flawed)  ​​https://screenrant.com/black-widow-lawsuit-scarlett-johansson-disney-statement-response/ (Scarlett Johansson Shocked By Disney's Statement About Black Widow Lawsuit)  https://variety.com/2021/film/news/disney-scarlett-johansson-black-widow-lawsuit-response-pandemic-1235030837/ (Disney Slams Scarlett Johansson Over 'Black Widow' Suit)  https://www.inc.com/jason-aten/disneys-response-to-scarlett-johanssons-black-widow-lawsuit-is-an-example-of-1-thing-no-company-should-ever-do.html (Disney’s Response to Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow Lawsuit Is an Example of What No Company Should Ever Do)  https://screenrant.com/black-widow-movie-disney-plus-premier-access-success/ (Disney Announces Black Widow Made $60M From Premier Access Alone) ​​https://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/ent/exclusive-scarlett-johansson.html (Exclusive: Disney Has Cut All Ties And Projects With Scarlett Johansson)  https://www.tmz.com/2021/06/15/jackass-director-bam-margera-death-threats-permanent-restraining-order/ ('Jackass' Director Gets Permanent Restraining Order Against Bam Margera) https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2021-08-09/bam-margera-sues-jackass-forever-team-alleging-discrimination-and-unlawful-firing (Bam Margera sues 'Jackass Forever' team over his firing)  Connect with me!

Talking Girardi with Sarah Galli
01:49:15
I love having a Bravo Kiki with Sarah Galli from The Andy's Girls Podcast. Deeply fulfilled after another perfect episode of Beverly Hills, Sarah awakes bright eyed and bushy tailed (Dear Hinge: bow-chicka-wow-wow), and immediately races to the People's People's Couch for a spiritual People's People's Court. She dials up the Hunky to her Dory, the Thoma to her Sina, and the official AG legal correspondent, Emily D. Baker (legal commentator, former prosecutor, and host of The Emily Show). They unpack Britney Spears' legal battle, and the freedoms Tom Girardi is afforded that she is not, a nuanced conversation around how one can empathize with Erika while still holding her to account, and why Sutton and Crystal's epic argument may stem from their opposing reactions to conflict. You'll never get to call Sarah's leather pants ugly, because this dame wears dresses instead - it's Andy's Girls, Episode 232!

Britney Spears has had enough. On June 23rd she told the court. On July 14th she got her own lawyer, now on July 26th, her lawyer is asking James Spears to resign and if now asking the court to suspend and then remove him. This will be back before the court on September 29th and I suspect the court will remove James Spears at that time. In fact, I will be shocked if the court doesn't remove him.

The 13 year Britney Spears conservatorship has really come to the forefront of conversation in the last few months.

Today's episode is a little shorter to help condense what the most controversial aspects of the conservatorship are and what I think is coming down the road next.

Jen Shah and the dry contact defense

Real Housewife of Salt Lake City Jen Shah was shockingly arrested in March 2021 while Bravo cameras were rolling. It really was something. During her arraignment, we learned that the Government believes that Jen Shah was at the TOP of a telemarketing scheme. She was charged with Conspiracy to commit Wire Fraud and Conspiracy to commit Money Laundering. Shah's attorney's filed a substantial motion asking the court to dismiss the indictment and then asked the court to suppress all of Jen Shah's post-arrest statements alleging, in part, that she couldn't voluntarily waive her Miranda rights because her contacts were dry...I am not joking. The Government responded with quite a lot of facts that we hadn't heard before including that Jen Shah was deposed in a substantial FTC lawsuit with regards to the same acts and companies well before she agreed to be a part of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There is a lot of information here so get a snack and let's get into it.

Bill Cosby Conviction Overturned

Britney Speaks.
01:35:20
On June 23, 2021, Britney Spears spoke at a status conference for her Conservatorship. It was a rare moment in open court, broadcast for the media and the world to hear how she was feeling. She spoke clearly and quickly as if she was worried she wouldn't be allowed to get all of her statements out, or that she wouldn't be heard. It's clear that in 13 years of this conservatorship what the #FreeBritney movement has feared is largely true. What Britney detailed is heartbreaking. Her lack of autonomy has been widely speculated on and she detailed it painfully. I would love to hear your thoughts on social!

Sephora sued for Defamation
53:50
We are seeing a new wave of lawsuits that illustrate a new twist to the push-pull between a companies right to choose who they work with and employee and discrimination based on ideology or activities that occur outside of work. From Amy Cooper (The Central Park Karen) suing her former employer after being fired for the viral incident in central park to Beauty Influencer Amanda Ensing suing Sephora for alleged defamatory remarks made when cutting ties with her. Conservative 'comedian' and commentator Steven Crowder has said he is suing YouTube for demonetizing and striking his channel, he is ostensibly suing for discrimination based on viewpoint, but we will see. The line between workplace behavior and outside-of-work behavior is clearly blurring due to social media. So where do we go from here?

Nike doesn't approve of this shoe and has now sued MSCHF over the shoes. A court granted a temporary restraining order over it and this suit is pushing forward quickly.

A Cheer Mom, Deep fakes, and a Homecoming Queen
36:25
The College Admission scandal showed everyone the lengths some parents will go to in order to further their children. While Parents in those cases used to access and money to steal opportunities for their children other parents have found different ways to try to do something similar. Both stories I cover in this episode are pending criminal prosecution as of 3-24-21. First, a Pennsylvania cheer mom used technology to create ‘deep fake’ videos and images of teens on her daughter’s cheer squad in a seeming attempt to discredit those teens by showing that they were engaging in behavior that goes against the teams’ honor code. The Victory Vipers are an elite cheer team in Doylestown Pa. Law enforcement said that the woman used apps on her phone to alter photos and videos of three teens, then masked her cell phone number to send those to coaches on the team and teens themselves. The District Attorney of Bucks County charged the 50-year-old mom with 3 counts of cyber harassment of a child and 3 counts of harassment, both misdemeanors.  Second, a Flordia Elementary School Assistant Principal and her teen daughter were arrested for allegedly using the mother’s access to school accounts to change over 100 votes in the Homecoming election. It’s alleged that they accessed the school’s system to changes votes from a singular IP address. They have been charged with one count each of offenses against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks, and electronic devices, a third-degree felony; unlawful use of a two-way communications device, a third-degree felony; criminal use of personally identifiable information, a third-degree felony; and conspiracy to commit these offenses, which is a first-degree misdemeanor.

Quote “It’s Britney Bitch” - Britney Spears “ In my opinion, Jamie is a total Dick” Sam Asghari (Britney’s boyfriend) Framing Britney Spears shines a light on aspects of a culture of misogyny, dehumanizing celebrities, and shaming mental health. The documentary looks at what lead up to Britney ending up in the conservatorship but also points fingers at the industry and culture that created the situation. Since it aired there have been discussions, an apology (?) from Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson on the top of the charts.  ResourcesBritney Spears Conservatorship Videos  https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJ8VMtz1l47SikJSOpcAweL (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gJ8VMtz1l47SikJSOpcAweL) Britney Spears Podcast Episode https://emilydbaker.com/?s=Britney+Spears&post_type=captivate_podcast (https://emilydbaker.com/?s=Britney+Spears&post_type=captivate_podcast) Sam Speaks https://www.tmz.com/2021/02/09/britney-spears-boyfriend-sam-asghari-rips-jamie-total-dick-zero-respect/ (https://www.tmz.com/2021/02/09/britney-spears-boyfriend-sam-asghari-rips-jamie-total-dick-zero-respect/) Janet Statement https://www.cinemablend.com/television/2562921/janet-jackson-posts-sweet-message-to-fans-after-justin-timberlake-apologizes-to-her-and-britney-spears (https://www.cinemablend.com/television/2562921/janet-jackson-posts-sweet-message-to-fans-after-justin-timberlake-apologizes-to-her-and-britney-spears)  https://twitter.com/JanetJackson/status/1360661882328211463?s=20 (https://twitter.com/JanetJackson/status/1360661882328211463?s=20)  https://ew.com/music/janet-jackson-control-album-charts-justin-timberlake/ Join the Text Crew https://http://www.textemily.com (www.TextEmily.Com) Law Nerd Merch https://www.LawNerdShop.com Looking for the YouTube videos? https//http://www.watchemily.com (www.WatchEmily.com) Want to connect with Emily More? https://http://www.instagram.com/theemilydbaker (www.Instagram.com/theemilydbaker)

The Girardi Bankruptcy Breakdown
41:07
Tom Girardi and his Law Firm Girardi Keese were sued 11 times in 2020 in Los Angles alone. That isn’t counting the Divorce filed by his wife Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Erika Jayne, or the federal case involving the Lion Air disaster. The wave of cases in December 2020 pushed creditors to file an involuntary chapter 7 bankruptcy petition, which was later granted. The Bankruptcy court now has the Sisyphean task of unraveling the accounting and lawsuits as well as the ongoing client matters that Girardi Keese was handling. While all of that was happening Tom Girardi’s brother sought an appointment as a Guardian Ad Lietim in the Bankruptcy Court and sought a conservatorship in the LA Superior Court. On Monday 2-1-21 the conservatorship was granted on a temporary basis.  RESOURCES Emily's Case Coverage https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gIvaPnEfilr35PrLPfq01qz (https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsbUyvZas7gIvaPnEfilr35PrLPfq01qz) https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/tom-girardis-brother-named-temporary-conservator-amid-medical-concerns/ https://www.law360.com/articles/1345840/girardi-gained-their-trust-but-left-them-with-regret

The JLM Couture v. Hayley Paige Lawsuit

‘That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet’ -Shakespeare. Bridal Couture company JLM Couture has sued one of its most popular designers, Hayley Paige, for ownership of her name and her social media accounts including TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest. Shortly after the complaint was filed in this case JLM Couture asked for a preliminary injunction and while this is pending the court granted a temporary order and gave JLM Couture control over Hayley Paige’s social accounts. She is arguing that they are personal accounts, the company argues they are intellectual property owned by them.

The Erika Jayne, Tom Girardi Federal Lawsuit & Divorce
30:36
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Erika Jayne first caught our attention with eye-popping club music like Pretty Mess, Painkiller, and How Many Fu*ks. She has been on RHBH since 2015. Her husband is well-known attorney Tom Girardi who had numerous billion-dollar wins and settlements and whose PG&E case was made famous in the movie Erin Brockovich. Erika Girardi surprised everyone when she filed for divorce in November 2020. At that time it resurfaced that she had stated that she doesn’t have a prenup with Tom. A month later they were both sued in Federal Court alleging that Tom Girardi and his law firm Girardi Keese embezzled funds from the families of Lion Air crash victims whom he represented. The suit goes on to allege that the divorce is a sham to hide assets as the Firm Girardi Keese struggles to pay these clients, the firms debts, and to stay operational.  RESOURCES https://people.com/tv/erika-girardi-cryptic-tweet-amid-divorce-lawsuit-drama/ (https://people.com/tv/erika-girardi-cryptic-tweet-amid-divorce-lawsuit-drama/) https://people.com/tv/rhobh-star-erika-girardi-files-for-divorce-tom-girardi/ (https://people.com/tv/rhobh-star-erika-girardi-files-for-divorce-tom-girardi/) https://theblast.com/146891/rhobh-star-erika-jayne-files-for-divorce-from-husband-tom-girard (https://theblast.com/146891/rhobh-star-erika-jayne-files-for-divorce-from-husband-tom-girard) https://www.eonline.com/news/738339/why-erika-girardi-is-our-new-favorite-on-the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills (https://www.eonline.com/news/738339/why-erika-girardi-is-our-new-favorite-on-the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills) https://www.etonline.com/erika-jayne-and-ex-tom-girardi-sued-for-allegedly-using-divorce-to-embezzle-money-from-crash (https://www.etonline.com/erika-jayne-and-ex-tom-girardi-sued-for-allegedly-using-divorce-to-embezzle-money-from-crash) https://www.today.com/popculture/erika-jayne-s-divorce-sham-protect-couple-s-money-lawsuit-t202405 (https://www.today.com/popculture/erika-jayne-s-divorce-sham-protect-couple-s-money-lawsuit-t202405) Things cited in the lawsuit https://www.dailybreeze.com/2017/07/01/famed-attorney-thomas-girardi-accused-of-hoarding-settlement-funds-for-carsons-carousel-residents/ (https://www.dailybreeze.com/2017/07/01/famed-attorney-thomas-girardi-accused-of-hoarding-settlement-funds-for-carsons-carousel-residents/) https://www.bravotv.com/the-daily-dish/the-most-expensive-thing-erika-girardi-owns (https://www.google.com/url?sa=D&q=https://www.bravotv.com/the-daily-dish/the-most-expensive-thing-erika-girardi-owns&ust=1607483520000000&usg=AOvVaw1FQMDjYf0AI6nLFbNb6KJk&hl=en) https://www.realitytea.com/2017/12/29/erika-girardi-gave-husband-tom-girardi-5000-toilet-gift/ (https://www.realitytea.com/2017/12/29/erika-girardi-gave-husband-tom-girardi-5000-toilet-gift/) https://realityblurb.com/2018/03/21/rhobh-erika-jayne-spends-40000-a-month-on-her-appearance-says-being-rich-af-gets-boring/ (https://realityblurb.com/2018/03/21/rhobh-erika-jayne-spends-40000-a-month-on-her-appearance-says-being-rich-af-gets-boring/) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D26WFPl2ROQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D26WFPl2ROQ)  https://www.bustle.com/articles/149204-the-craziest-thing-erika-girardi-owns-truly-sets-the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-star-apart (https://www.bustle.com/articles/149204-the-craziest-thing-erika-girardi-owns-truly-sets-the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-star-apart)

Election Lawsuit Updates & Thanksgiving
40:53
Since last week shit has popped off! I really didn’t want to cover the election lawsuits again. But it’s as crazy as Suenami 2020 and even though most of the lawsuits have been dismissed it hasn’t stopped the Trump legal team from leveraging massive allegations, then disavowing one of their own. I don’t even know how to summarize it.  I am frustrated at this point. We should be moving closer to the end of this election, the funds have been released for the presidential transition, lawsuits have been dismissed. But no, we have larger allegations and intrigue within the Trump legal team.  I am ready for some facts...and then some pumpkin pie.  Don't forget to check out the Law Nerd Shop....www.LawNerdShop.com ResourcesState Legislatures are now convening public hearings to address election allegations.

46:16
Trump Election Lawsuits There is a lot happening in the election...still.  I am breaking down the current lawsuits that are being waged in multiple states….you know, still.  This episode was recorded before two different courts in Pennsylvania ruled against the Trump campaign in their allegations that vote counting was not properly observed and that the elections officials properly handled the election observation process. At the end of the day these legal processes will play out, the election results will be certified. Over 70 million people will be mad,  hopefully, everyone will have a better understanding of how the court process works and we will still be facing a pandemic. Isn’t 2020 fun!  RESOURCEShttps://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/2020/11/16/trump-election-lawsuits-republicans-battleground-states-vote-count/6177538002/ (Guide to Trump election result lawsuits in 6 battleground states) https://youtu.be/NYLWQ-UeJ6Q (https://youtu.be/NYLWQ-UeJ6Q) https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-dominion-software-trump-law/fact-check-dominion-softwarewas-notusedonlyin-states-where-trump-is-filing-lawsuits-idUSKBN27S2Z9 (Fact check: Dominion software was not used only in states where Trump is filing lawsuits)  https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/2nd-trump-lawyer-asks-pull-case-challenging-pennsylvania/story?id=74244435 (2nd Trump lawyer asks to pull out of case challenging Pennsylvania election) https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/13/politics/arizona-trump-lawsuit/index.html (Trump campaign drops Arizona lawsuit requesting review of ballots)  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/14/trump-lawsuit-arizonas-maricopa-county-dismissed-judge/6296977002/ (Trump election lawsuit in Arizona's Maricopa County dismissed, outcome wouldn't have affected races) https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/16/trump-backers-drop-biden-vote-challenge-case-in-wisconsin.html (Trump backers drop court cases challenging voting results in four states, another setback in bid to undo Biden win) https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-election-lawsuit-pennsylvania-other-states-where-they-stand/ (Where the Trump campaign and Republican election-related lawsuits stand)  -- all the suits  https://ballotpedia.org/Election_results_certification_dates,_2020 (https://ballotpedia.org/Election_results_certification_dates,_2020) https://crsreports.congress.gov/product/pdf/IF/IF11641#:~:text=December%2014%2C%202020%3A%20Electors%20Vote,meeting%20is%20on%20December%2014 (https://crsreports.congress.gov/product/pdf/IF/IF11641#:~:text=December%2014%2C%202020%3A%20Electors%20Vote,meeting%20is%20on%20December%2014).   Update in Pa. → https://www.npr.org/2020/11/17/936027693/led-by-giuliani-trump-campaign-effort-to-stop-certification-falters-in-pennsylva (Led By Giuliani, Trump Campaign Effort To Stop Certification Falters In Pennsylvania)   Connect With Me Join the Text Crew https://http://www.textemily.com/ (www.TextEmily.Com) Looking for the YouTube videos? https//http://www.watchemily.com/ (www.WatchEmily.com) Want to connect with Emily More? https://http://www.instagram.com/theemilydbaker (www.Instagram.com/theemilydbaker)

Rachel Hollis Sued.
38:07
Rachel Hollis, Dave Hollis and Hollis Co. are being sued for Trademark Infringement over ‘Made for More’.  With Rachel Hollis it’s not ‘wow she is getting sued’ it's more of ‘oh finally’. Rachel Hollis has a history of disregarding others intellectual property rights and this lawsuit lays it out! If you want to see the images of all the quotes and properties it’s linked below.  If you are familiar with Rachel Hollis at all you have likely heard of her movie ‘Made for More’.  She also sold Made for More merch on QVC and on her website.  The problem is that ‘Made for More’ is someone else's intellectual property. That means you can’t use it.  It will be so interesting to see how this sorts out.  RESOURCESPodcasts & Videoshttps://youtu.be/RyVJZkSfZlE (Should have seen that coming ….

The Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation
01:00:44
There has been a lot of coverage of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett and the Confirmation Process. Some believe it’s rushed, some were outraged at the questions she was asked, others outraged at the questions she didn’t answer. The hearing days were long and a moment with a blank notepad made its mark on meme culture.  This episode was a particular pleasure to record because I had the opportunity to answer your questions and they were amazing!

Yelp Adds 'Racist Business' Alert.
37:15
Yelp has taken a broad step. Some praise the social activism, many wonder how this will impact affected businesses. The label first ask questions second approach yelp is taking is problematic. By Yelp’s statement is that the advisory will go up while Yelp is investigating. It is also made clear that this doesn’t have to be an issue with the business directly because it can also be with ‘someone associated with the business’. So if an off duty employee creates this issue…. And the business gets labeled, then what?   My concern for businesses is that Yelp will label first, and it’s unclear how businesses can get these alerts removed. What we know about the court of public opinion is that it doesn’t matter what Yelps investigation finds, it matters that the accusation was placed on the business in the first place.  RESOURCES VIDEOShttps://youtu.be/tAhrlZWhq5E (Coffee Talk - Yelp labels businesses racist) https://emilydbaker.com/podcasts/getting-sued-over-bad-reviews/ (Episode 17 Podcast -- Getting Sued Over Bad Reviews) ARTICLEShttps://blog.yelp.com/2020/10/new-consumer-alert-on-yelp-takes-firm-stance-against-racism (New Consumer Alert on Yelp Takes Firm Stance Against Racism)  https://www.cato.org/publications/survey-reports/poll-62-americans-say-they-have-political-views-theyre-afraid-share (Poll: 62% of Americans Say They Have Political Views They’re Afraid to Shar)e https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52993306 (Merriam-Webster's current definition of racism) https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-protests-for-racial-justice/2020/10/09/922271718/yelp-will-label-businesses-accused-of-racist-behavior (Yelp Will Label Businesses Accused Of Racist Behavior)  https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/09/business/yelp-consumer-racism-alert-trnd/index.html (Yelp adds alerts to business accused of racism)  https://searchengineland.com/yelp-introduces-new-business-accused-of-racist-behavior-consumer-alert-341797 (Yelp introduces new 'business accused of racist behavior' consumer alert) https://www.clickcease.com/blog/competitor-click-fraud-a-case-study/ (Competitor Click Fraud: A Case Study | The Click Fraud Blog)   https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/10/09/yelp-to-publicly-shame-businesses-accused-of-racist-behavior/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook (Yelp to Publicly Shame Businesses 'Accused of Racist Behavior')   Per Yelps blog; “At Yelp, we value diversity, inclusion and belonging, both internally and on our platform, which means we have a zero-tolerance policy to racism. We know these values are important to our users and now more than ever, consumers are increasingly conscious of the types of businesses they patronize and support. In fact, we’ve seen that reviews mentioning Black-owned businesses were up more than 617% this summer compared to last summer. Support for women-owned businesses has also increased, with review mentions up 114% for the same time period. The new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert is an extension of our Public Attention Alert that we introduced in response to a rise in social activism surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement.  So far in 2020, we’ve seen a 133% increase in the number of media-fueled incidences on Yelp compared to the same time last year. Between May 26 and September 30, we placed more than 450 alerts on business pages that were either accused of, or the target of, racist behavior related to the Black Lives Matter movement. We have maintained around-the-clock support over the last few months to ensure that we’re maintaining the trust and safety of our users and business owners. If the business takes public corrective action, such as firing an offending employee, the alert will be downgraded to a Public Attention Alert, which warns users that “someone associated with the business was accused of, or the target of, racist behavior.” What do you think? Do the problems outweigh the benefit...

President Trump. Taxes, The Debate, and Covid.
44:56
President Trump has been busy. From that staggering Debate performance to the New York Times article about his taxes...to contracting COVID.  It’s a lot. I find the Tax article in the New York Times to be the least shocking of everything. I found the Debate to be a steaming hot mess. Then there was COVID. The president continues to act like he is marketing a reality show on twitter while COVID fears still have some states locked down.  I personally prefer the cautious management here in Tennessee to the authoritarian lockdown in California, but different populations will have different responses.  I can’t wait to talk to you about this week’s episode!  RESOURCESVIDEOShttps://youtu.be/uSR2AGU_Sjk (This Week: Trump Taxes, Covid & the Debate ) https://youtu.be/DUSwIQ8523o (Lawyer Reacts: Trump Tax Returns) ARTICLEShttps://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/09/27/us/donald-trump-taxes.html?referringSource=articleShare (Trump’s Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance) https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/26/7213 (Unauthorized Release of Information  26 USC §7213 ) https://apnews.com/article/election-2020-donald-trump-constitutions-elections-us-supreme-court-91ce484b8046e6a555e172f42c4441f9 (AP EXPLAINS: What happens if a candidate for president dies?)   https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020/10/don-jr-thinks-trump-is-acting-crazy-presidents-covid-joyride-has-family-divided?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=onsite-share&utm_brand=vanity-fair&utm_social-type=earned (“Don Jr. Thinks Trump Is Acting Crazy”: The President’s COVID Joyride Has the Family Divided)  https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2020/10/05/nyts-wajahat-ali-the-muslim-in-me-is-praying-for-those-afflicted-with-covid-while-the-samuel-l-jackson-in-me-is-rooting-for-covid/ (NYT's Wajahat Ali: 'The Muslim in me is praying' for those afflicted with COVID, while 'the Samuel L.

Kanye West v. The Music Industry
01:05:10
“I Think Prince and Mike was tryna warn me” - Kanye West Kanye West has taken up the personal mission to bring change to the oft-criticized music industry. He did so by taking to twitter, peeing on his grammy and exposing his own contracts. There are over a hundred pages of contracts on Twitter for all the world to see. Kanye has set forth a 7 point plan to ‘push the’ music industry into the 21st century’. He declared that he is the new Moses. But he isn’t wrong.  His criticism of the music industry echos so many others, most notably Prince...whose fight with Sony Music lead to him changing his name to a symbol. There is a lot to talk about so let’s break it down!

Cuties...the movie that cancelled Netflix.
37:04
Well, Twitter is all a…..well, a twitter, over the new Netflix movies ‘Cuties’. This is a French film that’s a Sundance award winner with a female director. However, it’s also very, very provocative and is either attempting to make a point, or is child pornography. The outrage was swift and by some accounts, Netflix has lost billions. I watched the film so we can have a chat, break down my thoughts, and talk about the legal standards of child pornography.  RESOURCES https://www.theverge.com/2020/9/11/21431174/cancel-netflix-cuties-movie-maimouna-doucoure-backlash-petition (Why 'Cancel Netflix' is trending) https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2020-08-20/netflix-cuties-petition-french-film (Petition asks Netflix to remove film that 'sexualizes' girls) https://www.bustle.com/entertainment/netflix-cuties-controversy-explained (Netflix's 'Cuties' Controversy, Explained)  https://thefederalist.com/2020/09/12/lawmakers-demand-federal-investigation-into-netflix-film-cuties-for-child-pornography/ (Lawmakers Demand Federal Investigation Into Netflix Film 'Cuties' For Child Pornography)  https://dailycaller.com/2020/09/11/gop-lawmakers-justice-department-netflix-cuties/ (EXCLUSIVE: GOP Lawmakers Call On Justice Department To Take Legal Action Against Netflix For Sexualizing Children)  https://goodsauce.news/netflix-shareholders-lose-9-billion-as-it-refuses-to-stop-sexualising-children/ (Netflix shareholders lose $9 BILLION as it refuses to stop sexualising children) https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303771909356650496?s=20 (Cuties on Netflix is open pedophilia. #BoycottNetfli)x https://www.justice.gov/criminal-ceos/citizens-guide-us-federal-law-child-pornography (Citizen's Guide To US Federal Law On Child Pornography) https://twitter.com/Cythesuccubus/status/1304175620394491905?s=20 (https://twitter.com/Cythesuccubus/status/1304175620394491905?s=20) https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778528169689088?s=20 (https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778528169689088?s=20) https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778934421680129?s=20 (https://twitter.com/GhostJim4/status/1303778934421680129?s=20) https://www.forbes.com/sites/elanagross/2020/09/11/netflix-defends-cuties-as-social-commentary-against-sexualization-of-young-children/?fbclid=IwAR0s04nqT-GLqemLPPqQEoTayCkTsYvchI5KzvA-Ej-MR_L6hGgBhw0ohDc#5f6b726f7351 (https://www.forbes.com/sites/elanagross/2020/09/11/netflix-defends-cuties-as-social-commentary-against-sexualization-of-young-children/?fbclid=IwAR0s04nqT-GLqemLPPqQEoTayCkTsYvchI5KzvA-Ej-MR_L6hGgBhw0ohDc#5f6b726f7351) https://www.justice.gov/criminal-ceos/citizens-guide-us-federal-law-child-pornography (https://www.justice.gov/criminal-ceos/citizens-guide-us-federal-law-child-pornography) If you want me to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com  Come hang with me on social! I want to chat with you in the http://www.getlegitlive.com (Get Legit Community Facebook Group )!!  If you need help with your business you can find my products at http://www.getlegitshop.com (www.GetLegitShop.com) and my legal consulting at http://www.emilydbaker.com (www.EmilyDBaker.com)

Kenosha
39:55
I hope that the most important thing that we take away from the Kenosha unrest is that making a decision about a situation in one or two sentences of a news headline is not the full picture. The media has been taking the Jacob Blake shooting and creating a narrative juxtaposing it to the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting.  When the facts of these two situations are evaluated they are not the same in many regards. They are the same in that they are both avoidable. First, both situations are still under investigation and developing. Kyle Rittenhouse is in custody with murder charges (among others) pending. Jacob Blake is in the hospital paralyzed and recovering from 7 gunshot wounds.  But let’s discuss the surrounding situations based on the information available. Jacob Blake has pending charges arising out of a sexual assault and domestic violence case. There seems to be a restraining order in relation to those charges. Jacob Blake showed up at the victims’ house, broke in, attempted to steal her car resulting in her calling the police. When the police showed up to arrest Jabob Blake with the outstanding warrant and apparently violated the restraining order. He then wouldn’t comply with the police was Tasered twice, and reached for a weapon whereupon he was shot. The circumstances surrounding this are avoidable. Kyle Rittenhouse at 17 decided to head into Kenosha, an already tense situation, with an AR15 that he wasn’t supposed to be carrying based on his age. He then stayed in the area late into the night, he wasn’t questioned about his weapon (though open carry laws mean that people were walking around legally carrying similar weapons), he kept moving with the crowds of protestors until there was a confrontation. What we know from the video is that a protester behind Kyle Rittenhouse fired a weapon and Kyle turned around and fired injuring a protestor. The crowd turned on Rittenhouse, he was knocked to the ground protestors attempted to disarm him and he killed two. He shouldn’t have had that weapon. He is too young to be trusted to make good decisions in a dangerous situation he put himself in. He made these decisions that ended the lives of two people, this doesn’t discount the decisions of the protestors who were attacking someone armed with an AR15 cause that seems like terrible decision making too. But the circumstances here were also avoidable.  RESOURCES  https://www.wbay.com/2020/08/28/jacob-blake-no-longer-in-restraints-in-hospital-more-kenosha-officers-identified/ (Police association: Jacob Blake physically struggled with officers before shooting )  https://www.dailywire.com/news/walsh-before-you-honor-jacob-blake-as-a-martyr-read-the-criminal-complaint-against-him?itm_source=parsely-api?utm_source=cnemail&utm_medium=email&utm_content=082920-news&utm_campaign=position5 (WALSH: Before You Honor Jacob Blake As A Martyr, Read The Criminal Complaint Against Him) https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8675227/Criminal-complaint-Jacob-Blake-says-wanted-domestic-abuse-sexual-assault.html (Criminal complaint for Jacob Blake says he was wanted for domestic abuse and sexual assault)  https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29748584/the-day-games-stopped-line-jacob-blake-was-shot-back (The day the games stopped: A timeline since Jacob Blake was shot in the back) https://www.npr.org/2020/08/28/907101725/wisconsin-ag-pushes-back-on-criticism-of-investigation-into-jacob-blake-shooting (Wisconsin AG Pushes Back On Criticism Of Investigation Into Jacob Blake Shooting)  https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/jacob-blake-kenosha-police-shooting-08-31-2020/index.html (The latest on Kenosha police shooting of Jacob Blake) https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/rally-supporting-police-draws-scores-downtown-kenosha-72715661 (Rally supporting police draws scores to downtown Kenosha) ...

Free Britney
54:19
The Britney Spears Conservatorship is the backdrop of the Free Britney movement….wait the #FreeBritney movement. Her fans have demanded that attention is turned to the over 12-year conservatorship that has been granted to Britney’s father Jamie Spears. The conservatorship was set to expire in August 2020 but was extended until February 2021 while the court asks for additional legal motions. Britney has recently spent time in a mental health facility which some argue was a tactical move by her father to keep the conservatorship going, or as necessary to support her in light of her fathers health struggles.  There is a lot of behind the scenes that we don’t know here, because of the nature of the conservatorship. It’s meant to be private but is it time to transition to allowing Britney to have more freedom. To be able to choose if she wants to have another child, to get married, to drive her car. I completely understand why her fans are so concerned, I also think it’s time to have real conversations about taking the stigma away from mental health struggles, to examine what happens to celebrities in the US, and to question if cancel culture is making these issues worse.  RESOURCES VIDEOS https://youtu.be/PNepjO5_1TM (The Sad Story of the #FreeBritney Movement: Britney needs us. ) https://youtu.be/xxXFj4tzRB4 (Britney Spears’ Husband Supports Free Britney)  https://youtu.be/l7NJGGCECDg (Free Britney: The Britney Spears Conservatorship) https://youtu.be/fceT7Lb0W-k (Top 10 Times Britney Spears Called for Help) https://youtu.be/pSd9hiBGoE0 (Britney Spears Carpool Karaoke) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiJqPiHfzuU (Jamie Lynn Spears Addresses 'Free Britney') https://youtu.be/8FcDlBFGxT8 (Britney Spears Will Never Be Okay Again) ARTICLES  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/18/arts/music/britney-spears-conservatorship.html (Britney Spears Seeking Substantial Changes to Conservatorship) https://www.tmz.com/2019/09/06/jamie-spears-britney-conservatorship-step-down/ (Jamie Spears Asking to Temporarily Step Down as Britney's Conservator) https://www.insider.com/britney-spears-dad-conservator-conservatorship-jamie-lynn-altercation-son-2019-9 (Britney Spears' dad has asked to step down as her conservator for now) https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/britney-spears-pal-unearths-letter-on-conservatorship-k-fed/ (Britney Spears’ Pal Unearths Letter She Wrote About Conservatorship, K-Fed) https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/21/arts/music/britney-spears-conservatorship.html (Britney Spears Conservatorship to Remain As Is Until 2021) https://www.nbcchicago.com/entertainment/entertainment-news/britney-spears-conservatorship-extended-to-february-2021/2326493/ (Britney Spears' Conservatorship Extended to February 2021 – NBC Chicago) OTHER LINKS https://www.neilstrauss.com (Neil Strauss | NY Times Bestselling Author & Transformational Journalist) https://www.amazon.com/Neil-Strauss/e/B001H6NT1I?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1&qid=1598411689&sr=8-1 (Neil Strauss Books ) If you want me to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com  Come hang with me on social! I want to chat with you in the http://www.getlegitlive.com (Get Legit Community Facebook Group )!!  If you need help with your business you can find my products at http://www.getlegitshop.com (www.GetLegitShop.com) and my legal consulting at http://www.emilydbaker.com (www.EmilyDBaker.com)

Are shifting Independent Contractor Regulations, Heightened Enforcement & Lawsuits the end for Uber? Will it be the end of the Gig economy? Should Independent contractors be allowed to choose how they work and not have the government regulating work so heavily or is Uber making money (thought hey have never turned a profit) off the backs of their drivers?

Executive Orders - TIkTok, Stimulus Money, & Censorship ...Oh My!!
49:30
President Trump has recently signed quite a few Executive Orders that have garnered attention for a number of different reasons. I am personally most fascinated by the President taking on social media in different ways. A lot of the laws regulating the online space were written in the 90’s, long before social media as we know it was in existence. This clearly presents issues for government, employers, and society. Some of those decisions may be out of our hands  if these new Executive Orders stand.  The President has gone after TikTok, Facebook and Twitter by way of trying to open the door for platforms to be sued over censorship. One of the signatures of the Trump Presidency is quick action/impatience, and that is what we clearly see in the stimulus Executive Order.  I would love to hear your thoughts on these Executive Orders over in our http://www.getlegitlive.com (Facebook Community.)

Rage over Rachel Hollis' New Book
49:20
I have thoughts... I have made it pretty clear that I think Rachel Hollis is a fakey faker. Her brand of toxic positivity wrapped with curated authenticity just pisses me off. The announcement of her new book “Didn’t See that Coming” like a month and a half after she announced her divorce from Dave Hollis on Instagram just put me over the edge with it. I am outraged and the unyielding monetizing of bullshit. Rachel Hollis made clear in her divorce announcement that their marriage had been struggling for the last three years….and during that time she has released books, coaching, marriage retreat weekends and podcasts on the topic of having an epic marriage. It’s all such bullshit. She posted on Instagram in May that her new book was into the publisher, seemingly days after she told Dave that their marriage was over. This despite the fact that in ‘Girl Wash Your Face’ she describes divorce as not an option, that anything can be solved with communication, sex toys, and making out. So she is fine selling this to her audience but not following the advice for herself. All of it is overwhelmingly gross. She built an empire on marketing a life she wasn’t living. I am over this brand of BS influencer and I hope that everyone else is too.

First, a huge shout out to Rachel Brenke for having me on the Business Bites podcast and letting me share this episode with you guys! It was a great conversation about the changing laws in CA, and different implications. In the following months the State of California has dialed down on these laws and while California is reducing budgets everywhere they increased budgets for enforcement of AB5.  If you have ever wondered what kind of nerdy chats lawyers have….this conversation is a perfect example… enjoy.

Why Tennessee?
25:46
After Episode 42 I heard your questions - all of them.... You asked ‘but why Tennessee?’. So let’s break it down...how do you pick somewhere new to live? First, know that this wasn’t a quick decision. It was a process that has been going on in my mind for at least two years. I have been exploring if we would leave California...why we would leave and what our family values the most. Moving is a total pain in the ass, moving across the country is exciting and terrifying. Moving during a pandemic is exhausting. But we know what we are moving towards with our family and the life we have chosen. If you are considering a move these are the factors that mattered most to us..and how we made the decision to move to middle Tennessee.

Leaving Los Angeles
20:47
In Episode 41 I share with you how I began to choose my life. What I share in Episode 42 is a natural growth of that. My family and I are choosing our life and it has lead us to Middle Tennessee. We have been talking about moving out of Southern California for some time...but it felt like there were so many obstacles to us actually doing it. Truthfully...sitting here today it’s still a bit unreal that we made it happen. We sold our house, closed a business, packed things and kids and cars and drove from California to Tennessee in the middle of a pandemic. But we did it, we are here and we are so stinking excited.

The Three Words...an interview with Hal Elrod
47:05
My Journey. I started my journey long before I quit my career as a District Attorney. There were lots of little moments that lead up to big life decisions. As I continue to redefine success, achievement, and living my best life I still use the three words framework to figure out what that is. This interview with my friend Hal Elrod on the Achieve Your Goals podcast was one of the first ‘big’ podcast interviews that I did. It felt like a turning point for me. Hal was a gracious friend and mentor to me as I was finding my legs as an entrepreneur. If you haven’t read the Miricle Morning it’s accessible and affirming! His own journey is inspiring.

The Death of Breonna Taylor
39:38
The death of Breonna Taylor is absolutely tragic. There is no arguing that. What I have learned in over 10 years as a prosecutor though is that tragic circumstances don't necessairly mean it’s illegal. Sometimes waiting for justice in the form of a conviction will leave you waiting forever. In this episode, I discuss the facts surrounding the search warrant served at Breonna Taylors home, the circumstances that lead to her death, and what I think will happen with this case.  In the months since her death, we have seen a new law passed in Louisiana and one of the officers involved fired. But will we see criminal cases here?

Working From Home

Working from home sometimes seems like a dream, no commute, home with family or pets, and not always having to wear proper pants. But it comes with it’s own challenges.

George Floyd pt. 2
49:26
Additional charges were filed against Derek Chauvin, the other three officers involved in the attempted arrest and death of George Floyd have been arrested and charged. The Medical Examiners office updated its provisional autopsy report. When I get asked to talk about what I think might happen in this case I look for context from other similar cases. In Minneapolis Minnesota there is one, the death of Justine Ruszcyk who was shot and killed by officer Mohamad Noor in July 2017. This episode breaks down the new Second Degree Murder Charge, the Aiding and Abetting charge against the other officers, and the killing of Justine Ruszcyk.

George Floyd pt. 1
45:52
The killing of George Floyd has rocked the US and sparked protests around the world. Police officers are rarely charged with Murder in discharging their duties and there is no disagreeing that what Derek Chauvin did was a crime and not policing.  There was outrage at the charges filed, third-degree Murder and Second Degree Manslaughter. Breaking down what these changes mean, what the murder and manslaughter statues look like in Minnesota, and how they apply to this case will hopefully be a helpful step in understanding what is happening. When dealing with the prosecution of a Police Officer who was acting in the line of duty there are additional defenses available to them when they are prosecuted, I talk about those too.  Resources & Articles from this EpisodeMinnesota Criminal Statutes https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/609.185 (Murder in the First Degree) https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/609.19 (Second Degree Murder) https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/609.195 (Third Degree Murder) https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/609.20 (Manslaughter First Degree) https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/609.205 (Second Degree Manslaughter) News Stories covering this case https://abcnews.go.com/US/independent-autopsy-george-floyd-findings-announced/story?id=70994827 (Independent autopsy finds George Floyd died of homicide by asphyxia) https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/minneapolis-police-officers-derek-chauvin-arrested-george-floyd-case-n1216011 (Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged with murder in George Floyd case) https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/george-floyd-family-release-results-autopsy-70994420 (Medical examiner: Floyd's heart stopped while restrained)  If you want me  to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com  Come hang with me on social!  I want to chat with you in the http://www.getlegitlive.com (Get Legit Community Facebook Group )!!  If you need help with your business you can find my products  at http://www.getlegitshop.com (www.GetLegitShop.com) and my legal consulting at http://www.emilydbaker.com (www.EmilyDBaker.com)

In this episode I discuss the CDC guidelines for reopening schools as well as the college admissions scandal. Yes...it’s a school episode.

Moving Forward
25:29
As some states are starting to reopen, others are uncertain when businesses will start to reopen. Businesses are struggling to figure out how to reopen while protecting employees and customers alike while others are trying to figure out how to have their PPP loans forgiven. Companies large and small are going through rounds of layoffs, others are making permanent plans to keep their workforce working from home. Times are strange, but we are still moving forward.  Links and Resourceshttps://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/may/08/tech-layoffs-coronavirus-uber-airbnb (Business Struggles) https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2020/5/18/21262337/uber-layoff-3000-employees-covid-19-coronavirus (Uber Layoffs) https://thepointsguy.com/guide/disney-theme-parks-reopen/ (Disney Reopenings) https://emilydbaker.com/ppploanforgiveness/ (PPP Loan Forgiveness)  If you want me to cover a particular story or situation please contact the show at GetLegit@emilydbaker.com  Come hang with me on social! I want to chat with you in the http://www.getlegitlive.com (Get Legit Community Facebook Group )!!  If you need help with your business you can find my products at http://www.getlegitshop.com (www.GetLegitShop.com) and my legal consulting at http://www.emilydbaker.com (www.EmilyDBaker.com)

The Outrage Over the Paycheck Protection Program
29:35
First....Congress passed additional funding for the PPP on April 21st and I expect it to be signed into law this week and funds should start rolling out soon. I will be updating that in the Facebook Group! If you are angry, confused or frustrated about the PPP and the way the Stimulus checks are rolling out, you are not alone. There is nothing short of outrage over the Paycheck Protection Program funds going to large publicly traded companies. Yes Shake Shack gave back their funds but is that enough?

The War on Work
22:20
RANT Ahead....I am kinda pissed about the way small business, independent contractors and the self-employed are being treated. I have long said that the way to get ahead and live 'the American dream' is through business ownership. The tax laws are business friendly, there are a tremendous amount of options for how to structure your work and your life. I have also said that it's not for the faint of heart. The situation with Coronavirus, the Paycheck Protection Program and the SBA loans have highlighted what types of businesses are favored. As small business owners are put last in line for aid, struggle to find lenders and are unsure when they will receive money larger businesses are able to apply through their regular banks due to existing relationships. I am rooting for the little guy.
