Courthouse News reports:
An attorney representing former Alabama judge Roy Moore was AWOL from a Thursday morning court hearing on his effort to disqualify the federal judge presiding over Moore’s $95 million defamation suit against Sacha Baron Cohen.
Larry Klayman, a conservative legal gadfly and founder of Freedom Watch, filed the motion last week to disqualify U.S. District Judge John P. Cronan from Moore’s defamation suit against the English comedian and the networks Showtime and CBS that partnered with Baron Cohen on the series “Who Is America?”
Judge Cronan told the parties Thursday, after waiting 20 minutes for Klayman to dial in to the remote teleconference, he had planned to address the issue of Klayman’s failure to report a recent 90-day suspension imposed on him by the D.C. Court of Appeals.
Read the full article. The hearing has been rescheduled. Klayman blames a “snafu” on his calendar.
I’ve been reporting on Klayman for so many years, I can’t even keep track of how many crackpots he has represented or the insane suits he has filed.
Perhaps most memorable is the time he stood outside the White House with a bullhorn and shouted for President Obama to “put down the Koran and come out with your hands up.” Klayman, you may recall, filed multiple birther lawsuits against Obama.
Last year a federal court dismissed his multi-billion dollar suit on behalf of Laura Loomer against Google, Apple, Twitter, and Facebook. He’s currently suing China for $20 billion for releasing COVID as a “bioweapon.”
