Justice Hull only publishes a small fraction of this opinion. But even the stuff that's published is, in my view, a damning indictment of the performance of attorney -- and plaintiff -- Thomas M. Witte. To say that Witte does not come out smelling like a rose, either in the underlying action or on appeal, is an understatement. Sure, he didn't kill anyone, or anything like that. Rather, he acted unprofessionally, and in a manner that I'm sure he's embarassed to have anyone read. Or at least should be.
Not the finest graduate of the McGeorge School of Law.
