Liberty Council Gives Bad Advice to Kim Davis

Liberty kisses JusticeWe have noted that God’s Own Filing Clerk Kim Davis continues her defiance of court orders going all the way up to the Supreme Court. Her refusal to issue marriage licenses to LGBTQ people is putting her clearly in the danger zone.

Behind Davis is legal council in the person of Matt Staver, who is the founder of the virulently anti-gay Liberty Council. Liberty Council has been advising Davis to stand firm in defiance of court orders, which seems like very poor advice coming from lawyers.

Well, I’m only a son-of-a-lawyer, but even I can see that Staver is using his client to further his own political agenda, which hardly seems like he is following the ABA’s own rules of professional conduct.

Could Liberty Council could be sued for malpractice or perhaps punished by the American Bar Association under Rule 10 section 3, perchance?

I think if Davis ends up being forcefully removed from office or put in the sneezer for contempt there is a real chance that some scrutiny might come to Staver; or at least I hope so.

    I don’t think her martyrdom is gaining the kind of attention she was expecting. This is what happens when you are a member of a minority who believe they are the vast majority.

    Meanwhile, the “all news, all the time- except when the Yankees are playing” CBS affiliate has made no mention of Staver’s connection with Liberty Council in their coverage of this story. I found myself yelling at the radio, “He’s not a simple country lawyer, why don’t you mention that he belongs to a right-wing hate group?”

    Liberal media bias, my ass!
