So i am a bit naive as to this area of law. But is there any cogent causes of action those businesses have against F1? They don’t have any privity of contract. It feels like the only reason F1 would even deal with it is to avoid bad publicity and legal fees.
It seems kind of similar to me to say those businesses in Boulder City that lost revenue stream when the highway was redone to not go through town or even a shop that gets their walk in traffic disrupted by roadwork?
Or is there something against the government entities that brokered something that was knowingly harmful to the businesses without getting any of the apparent millions of dollars set aside for the businesses it should have reasonably known would be harmed? I mean F1 is a private entity that ostensibly wouldn’t owe any obligations to these private businesses?

Gross negligence seems like a potential cause of action against Liberty Media.

Perhaps an ancillary loss of consortium claim to make things interesting, too, but I don’t know that facts exist to support that.

The Las Vegas Grand Prix was the most blatant case of fraudulent advertising since my suit against the film “The NeverEnding Story”

Hey Law Dawg, there are some comments on the Dept. 27 interviews that, for whatever reason, were posted today on yesterday’s blog entry. Maybe you could move them over to this one? Keep up the good work. Thanks.

No girlfriend/boyfriend on the planet is worth ruining your career over. But I suppose if people were thinking rationally then things like this would never happen. Yet they happen all the time. I had a few relationships go south in my younger days, and looking back, I dodged a bullet or two.

Any thoughts about last night’s 48 hours? Seems early to do a story before trial. Nothing new as far as the coverage.

The 48 Hour story on German and Telles was very good. They put it all together. Seems like the RJ solved the murder and did Metro’s job. The evidence against Telles is so strong and damning. However, the story is not evidence and all the facts need to be presented. The grainy video of the murder and Telles return to the scene with the SUV is very persuasive. Plus the reporter kept emphasizing Telles’s DNA under the fingernails of German. A lot of things can go wrong in a trial. There will be surprises. It does seem as though the 48 Hours story being aired will create prejudicial pretrial publicity. The trial will be lengthy. So many things can go wrong with a trial (juror misconduct, witness misconduct etc.). Appears to be a slam dunk for the State.

We’re all so familiar with the story, it’s hard to assess something like this from the POV of someone who has fresh eyes to the story. These shows tend to be repetitive internally, on purpose, to draw in new viewers mid-broadcast.

This is another example of Rob giving a media interview to his own detriment. The 48 hours reporter noted the DNA, “overwhelming evidence” and point plant told Rob his story was bullshit. “Come on, man.” It looked terrible for Rob. When asked who framed him, Rob said it would “be revealed” at trial. This interview was done in November, and Rob has now “revealed” his theory, that Compass Realty framed him. None of that was in the episode. I suspect that Rob gave the interview thinking the reporter would build up the framing theory, but instead Rob looked not only guilty, but foolish.

I’ve been around long enough to know how media interviews work. You give 100 units of material, and the journalist picks the 10 units that fit their narrative. This is why I never, ever give interviews on my cases that make the news (once a year or so). The journalist can quote my pleadings.

This is what Rob continually misunderstands. He can tell his ridiculous framing theory to journalists all day long, but they are going to snippet out the parts that fit the story they want to tell. With this one, Rob wanted to get his framing theory out through 48 hours, instead he gets the reporter citing the “overwhelming” evidence and laying down an incredulous and authoritative, “Come on man!” which is surely what the audience is also thinking.

Hardly hard-hitting journalism. More like milque-toast garbage typical of CBSNews. Don’t waste your time.
