- 19th JDC Judge Tim Kelley
JUDGE SLAPS 6TH DISTRICT CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE GARRET GRAVES POLITICAL CONSULTANTS
THE MUCK STOPS HERE!
NEWS RELEASE FROM FELDER CAMPAIGN:
BATON ROUGE- Baton Rouge attorney and congressional candidate Cassie Felder issued the following statement after the district court judge’s ruling regarding her request for injunction relief against The Political Firm:
“The judge today stated that The Political Firm is immoral and unethical in competing against me by working for Garret Graves. He said that it was wrong, though he was bound by his oath to deny my injunction request on a technicality. The court stated that the denial of injunction in no way reflected an opinion on the merits of the at-large case, and pledged efficiency in moving forward on it.
The Political Firm must argue in the case moving forward that it can mislead clients with false assurances of protection from violations of confidentiality and direct competition using ill-gotten information and resources based on flaws in its very own contract. Scott Hobbs and The Political Firm argued this position in public today.
Though the court denied the injunction, I got precisely what I wanted. I wanted public recognition that the Political Firm’s behavior is immoral and unethical, and I got it. Frankly, I was surprised at their audacity to fight this in public, as they chose. All indications are that they will continue.
