Anyone see Avenatti was arrested for trying to extort $$ from Nike

http://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id/...xtort-20m-nike

Feds: Avenatti tried to extort $20M from Nike

Guessing representing Stormy didnt pay well.

"According to the New York complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a news conference on the eve of Nike's quarterly earnings call and the start of the NCAA men's basketball tournament at which he would announce allegations of misconduct by Nike employees."

Sounds familiar. Maybe he should find a new script?

Avenatti gets 20 in 20.

Hope he gets to go on The View again before then.

It didn't help that he's a lawyer. I didn't really know lawyers were such scumbags until I personally had to deal with one. There is no such thing as a good lawyer lols.

Here is the question: Are lawyers scumbags before or after they became lawyers?

He was an hour or so away from holding a news conference about the topic but the Feds snatched him before he could. I don't think it was a bluff if he was going in front of nationwide cameras to make it public.
He couldn't be that stupid could he? I retract that question, he certainly could be but I think he has some sort of dirt on them.

It appears Mark Geragos is part of this scheme with Avenatti per The Smoking gun site.

If he actually had dirt, the Feds should be able to have that dirt and it will come out.

They arent above investigating and dishing out punishment. The Adidas scandal is a perfect example.

Jesse Jackson used to pull this same tactic. Press conference in the front of your building if you don’t do X my way.

Looks like it might be fact. This is getting better and better by the hour. Always disliked that piece of garbage.

Well, my dad's has provided a pretty comfortable life for his family. While there were a few days/weeks when we had to be picked up from school while the PD tracked down some "gentlemen" who tried to make a deal to have my father killed for winning a particularly nasty divorce, I think his ethics are firmly in place.

We recently spent MONTHS trying to pour thru the checking accounts of a lady who took advantage of a poor family who wasn't all that well-versed in English or the law. He didn't get paid for that.
