Having had the opportunity to read the post by "Farce" on another thread before certain portions were redacted, it's my opinion that while poorly worded, it expressed an opinion rather than what the editor characterized as a personal attack. To some extent, I must admit that I share some of the same opinions with regards to the portions that were redacted.
It's my opinion when Mr. Buckheit decided to proceed with a civil rights action against the town in federal court after receiving his declaration of factual innocence in San Mateo County, his counsel should have dropped out and strongly advised him to seek alternative counsel with a larger firm that specializes in such cases in federal court. Given the players in the San Mateo County action, there was, in my opinion, a conflict of interest and certainly no reputable firm would have advised their client that this matter was actionable to the tune of $10M. Such amounts are usually reserved for wrongful deaths and such a ridiculous amount certainly had some bearing on the case being thrown out despite Mr. Buckheit's protestations that his lawsuit was never about the money.
