Re: “Justice Goodson getting help again from her Italian yachting companion


It doesn't take a lawyer to unravel the Goodson's game. The Chamber or Kemp's campaign doesn't need me to do any research because the Goodson's leave a trail of slime that any reporter, ethics investigator, or fed could pick up. And because you are an insider who knows where the bodies are buried, you must be so worried wondering when the really damaging information will leak out.

If there was any question left after your first two posts (and your post history), thanks for outing yourself as a Goodson campaign operative. There is no doubt that the Chamber folks would be highly "PO'd" at Justice Goodson because she helped turn Arkansas into one of two national know judicial hell holes. Thanks for stating the obvious: Justice Goodson is only concerned with her political career and her husband's ever deepening pockets. If you want an Arkansas Supreme Court held in the back pocket of John Goodson and his out of state law firm buddies, then by all means vote for Justice Goodson. That is the simple choice the voters have.

I would tell you to get back to work, but monitoring these blogs to attack anyone opposing Goodson is clearly part of your job.

Re: “Justice Goodson getting help again from her Italian yachting companion


You ask where the trial lawyers are and why the court's are now controlled by Chamber of Commerce types? Your instincts are right to speculate that this is all just window dressing because Democrats are DOA in Arkansas right now. The trial lawyers adapt to survive, and John Goodson is among the best.

John Goodson himself, and the trial lawyers listed on the invitation, are positioning Justice Goodson as a Manchurian Candidate-like judge who will spout the republican/conservative party line but help out Goodson and his trial lawyer cronies at critical moments.

Case in point: Erik Danielson, one of the sponsors of the fundraiser, is suing Seeco in a giant class action in Judge Wilson's federal court along with big national out of state firms like Kessler Topaz from Philly. They have asked Judge Wilson to certify a critical legal issue to the Arkansas Supreme Court, and if this happens, Justice Goodson will be deciding whether the younger Danielson and Kessler Topaz succeed in their gambit for hundreds of millions from Seeco. I wonder if Goodson has a piece of this case in some way even though he isn't on the lawsuit, and I wonder if Justice Goodson will recuse herself when it comes before the Court? That might be a question someone should ask him/her.

Another case in point: WH Taylor, John Goodon and the same Kessler Topaz firm filed a class action in federal court against USAA, asked the court to stay it to negotiate, and then after 10 months of negotiations dismissed the case only to file it days later in state court and present a settlement agreement where Judges are notoriously permissive and easy on class action lawyers--especially easy on their fees. And even if a class member could appeal it, Justice Goodson and the Arkansas Supreme Court will make the final call.

The kicker: 2 years earlier Goodson and Kessler Topaz certified the key issue in that USAA case to the Arkansas Supreme Court, which predictably answered the question in Goodson's favor.

Justice Goodson's opponent should worry less about yacht trips, which is just a distraction, and focus in on the real game afoot.

And you wonder what has happened to the trial lawyers. Guerrilla tactics indeed. Just watch the lawyers who fund Justice Goodson, especially the out of state ones, and you can unravel who controls the Arkansas courts.
