Hit That Fuckin’ Clown Lawyer Still on the Hook

Hit That Fuckin’ Clown is by far the most popular entry in this blog’s history. There we let you in on the story of Aaron Wider, a man whose love for cussing can’t be suppressed, even during a deposition with a court reporter and videographer present.

When we last visited this story, Judge Eduardo Robreno of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania had sanctioned Mr. Wider and his attorney, Joseph Ziccardi, to the tune of over $29,000. Seems that Mr. Wider used The Fuck Word at least seventy-three times during his discovery deposition in a case pending in Judge Robreno’s court. The judge found defense counsel jointly and severally liable for the sanctions because of his failure to reign in his client and persuade him to answer questions without the pottymouthery.

Soon after the sanctions order came down, Mr. Ziccardi withdrew from case and hired his own attorney in an attempt to get the sanctions order vacated as to him. Those efforts have come to naught with Judge Robreno’s recent opinion and order (pdf, 32 pages) denying Ziccardi’s motion for reconsideration.

Of particular dyspepsia-generating import is the portion of the order under which “the stay of enforcement of the Court’s February 29, 2008 order is LIFTED.” Let the collection proceedings begin!

    Sir, I’ve taken you up on your double dog dare on the original HTFC post! I’ve posted the money graphic to an appropriate location, on my Colorado Divorce Industry page: http://www.knowyourcourts.com/divorceIndustry/divorceIndustry.htm

    Cheers!

    P.S. –maybe I’ll invoke Mr. Wider’s ire, after all. The very second I posted the graphic, my Web site got two exact-simultaneous hits from Perfect Technology Inc. in California from two different IP addresses to that particular page and in a manner that couldn’t have been a human user. My guess is that there is some kind of EXIF media management code in the graphic file that notifies a copyright holder of the file and then they have a script or spider that captures the page and produces a report. I’m trying to determine that now (I do computer forensics for a living).
