Herman Cain: Lin Wood v. Gloria Allred
Herman Cain is now represented by prominent Atlanta libel/defamation attorney Linn Wood, who previously represented the parents of JonBenet Ramsey, Richard Jewell, Gary Condit and the accuser in the Kobe Bryant Case. (He did not represent Kobe, as reported by the National Journal and ABA Journal, which should know better.) The National Journal reports he represented "Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, whom Wood served as co-counsel in a federal civil-action rape case." Here's the Complaint in the accuser's federal suit, signed on page 8 by Lin Wood.[More...]
You can't get a better lawyer in this field than Lin Wood.
Have Lin and Gloria faced off before? I'm not finding any cases. But as between the two, my money's on Lin Wood.
Wood said today he wasn't planning a lawsuit for Cain. No surprise, since Sharon Bialek has no money. But I can't help but wonder if he's considering suing Gloria. That would be a fun case to follow.
(Another media factual error: Lin represented Howard K. Stern, boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith as well as The Estate of Anna Nicole Smith. Stern was not, as the Washington Post reports, the father of Anna Nicole Smith's child. DNA tests proved Larry Birkhead was the father.)
Update: Even the New York Times also reports Lin Wood represented Kobe Bryant.
