The Gabby Petito case has gained international attention. Gabby Petito and her Fiancé Brian Laundrie went on a cross-country trip, Brian returned and Gabby was found dead 19 days after he returned home.

Brian Laundrie is now missing/on the run and under indictment for using Gabby’s debit card after her death. This week I break down the timeline and what we now know from the Coroner’s press conference.

Lawyer Reacts | Freeing Britney Spears

We know from leaked court documents in multiple documentaries that Britney has been fighting behind the scenes since the beginning of her conservatorship. On June 23, 2021, Britney Spears spoke in open court from the heart. She wanted the world to hear her, and the world did. This is not the first time Britney has made these pleas to the court, but it’s the first time that the entire world heard it in real-time, and I think that made all the difference in the world. Today I am taking the reports coming out of court from Twitter particularly from Britney Law Army who did tremendous work bringing the world the information from Court on September 29, 2021.

Controlling Britney Spears & The Fight To Remove James Spears as Conservator

James Spears is embedded in the Britney Spears conservatorship like an Alabama tick. Britney’s lawyer Rosengart refers to James Spears’ efforts to remain as lingering, I see it as a festering. Either Way the writing is on the wall for this Conservatorship and having James Spears removed is priority number one for Britney’s legal team. In new court filings on September 27, 2021, Britney’s legal team refers to the revelations from Controlling Britney Spears and how far off the rails the conservatorship has gone. Let’s all cross our fingers before this next court hearing on 9/29/21.

Britney’s Bid to Finally Remove James Spears

Finally, Rosengart and Britney make clear that they will be seeking to terminate the conservatorship THIS FALL!

The LuLaRich Documentary & The LuLaRoe Lawsuits

From butter-soft leggings to a myriad of lawsuits LuLaRich covers the rise and fall of MLM company LuLaRoe. Multi-Level Marketing companies often have to fight the stereotype of being a pyramid scheme, and LuLaRoe was sued by the Secretary of State of Washington State for being a Pyramid scheme and the company ended up settling the suit for 4.75 Million Dollars and a consent decree governing their practices. They are in a lawsuit with their main supplier and numerous suits with their own consultant retailers who lost so much buying into LuLaRoe. The story is captivating and sad with plenty of toxic positivity to go around. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Britney’s Legal Team Accuses James Spears of Extortion

Before James’ spears leaked a Petition to Terminate the Conservatorship of the Person and Estate Britney’s legal team came out swinging against the Spears ‘reply’ where James Spears said he would ‘step down’ when the ‘time is right’ and once the accountings (where he is asking for over 1.3 million in legal fees to his attorneys paid by Britney Spears) are settled. Rosengart has backed James Spears into a corner and we are far from done… because this is going to be a fight.

Where in the world is John Pierce. The craziest legal disappearing act.

“…and bad mistakes, I’ve made a few” -Queen. 

 In late August and early September attorney John Pierce who is known for formerly representing Kyle Rittenhouse and 17 defendants in the January 6th cases, but now known for going missing…absolutely missing. Not only did he go missing but the individual standing in for him in court and in defense-related legal hearings is not an attorney and it’s unclear if they will become an attorney based on their own pending criminal cases. The entire circumstance around the reports about this attorney are wild and I will be following up on this story.

NOTE- Since recording this podcast John Pierce has reportedly filed a notice with several courts saying that he was hospitalized for 12 days, but not stating why. I will continue following this wild case.

Was It All A Fraud? Elizabeth Holmes goes to trial.

From college dropout to Silicone Valley unicorn to federal fraud defendant. The most staggering things about the Elizabeth Holmes case are how long this alleged fraud was perpetrated and how she sold the dream all the way to the White House. Hundreds of millions were invested into Theranos based on a dream and the Government alleges fraud. Because Jury selection is about to start it’s the perfect time to get up to speed on this case and what the prosecution faces and what the defense is likely to bring to the table.

Nirvana sued over Nevermind Album art

The guy who was the baby on the Nirvana Nevermind album cover is now suing the band, band members, the estate of Curt Kobain, and others over the image. The Federal lawsuit filed on August 24, 2021, alleges that the image is an exploitative photo of a child (CP) and that he was forced into this situation. This suit has some very fundamental problems and has really pissed me off. I can’t wait to hear what you think about this one.

Suing Hollywood | Scarlet Johansson sues Disney, Bam v. MTV

It’s Hollywood Baby! Hollywood has allure and magic but it also has a dark side. This episode covers how the sausage gets made. Scarlet Johansson sues Disney over her contract regarding the distribution of Black Widow. She is arguing that her contract was based on a wide theatrical release like other Marvel movies, what Disney did was release the movie in Theaters and on Disney+ Streaming the same day, without renegotiating the contract.  Bam Margera is suing Paramount and Jackass co-star Johnny Knoxville over a wellness agreement that he argues he was forced to sign. The wellness agreement includes very specific provisions regarding Bam’s continued sobriety. 

The thing about contracts is that they should be enforced.

Talking Girardi with Sarah Galli

I love having a Bravo Kiki with Sarah Galli from The Andy’s Girls Podcast.

Deeply fulfilled after another perfect episode of Beverly Hills, Sarah awakes bright eyed and bushy tailed (Dear Hinge: bow-chicka-wow-wow), and immediately races to the People’s People’s Couch for a spiritual People’s People’s Court. She dials up the Hunky to her Dory, the Thoma to her Sina, and the official AG legal correspondent, Emily D. Baker (legal commentator, former prosecutor, and host of The Emily Show). They unpack Britney Spears’ legal battle, and the freedoms Tom Girardi is afforded that she is not, a nuanced conversation around how one can empathize with Erika while still holding her to account, and why Sutton and Crystal’s epic argument may stem from their opposing reactions to conflict. You’ll never get to call Sarah’s leather pants ugly, because this dame wears dresses instead – it’s Andy’s Girls, Episode 232!

Britney Moves To Fire Her Father

Britney Spears has had enough. On June 23rd she told the court. On July 14th she got her own lawyer, now on July 26th, her lawyer is asking James Spears to resign and if now asking the court to suspend and then remove him. This will be back before the court on September 29th and I suspect the court will remove James Spears at that time. In fact, I will be shocked if the court doesn’t remove him.

Blizzard / Activision Sued California over “Frat” Environment and Staggering Harassment

Blizzard/Activision has been sued over allegations of staggering harassment and workplace discrimination that have resulted in female employees being forced to leave their jobs to protect themself and one employee taking her own life. The allegations are triggering and raw, but sadly not unfamiliar to many women in male-dominated fields. Hopefully, this suit will signal to other women in gaming that it may be safe to sue, to push for fair treatment, to end harassment, and to demand equal pay.

The Britney Spears Conservatorship Case Brief

The 13 year Britney Spears conservatorship has really come to the forefront of conversation in the last few months. While many were aware of the conservatorship and the Free Britney movement has been pushing for Britney to be released from her conservatorship for years…but for everyone else, this is a lot of catch-up to get up to speed on what is happening with this case. Today’s episode is a little shorter to help condense what the most controversial aspects of the conservatorship are and what I think is coming down the road next.

Jen Shah and the dry contact defense

Real Housewife of Salt Lake City Jen Shah was shockingly arrested in March 2021 while Bravo cameras were rolling. It really was something. During her arraignment, we learned that the Government believes that Jen Shah was at the TOP of a telemarketing scheme. She was charged with Conspiracy to commit Wire Fraud and Conspiracy to commit Money Laundering. Shah’s attorney’s filed a substantial motion asking the court to dismiss the indictment and then asked the court to suppress all of Jen Shah’s post-arrest statements alleging, in part, that she couldn’t voluntarily waive her Miranda rights because her contacts were dry…I am not joking. The Government responded with quite a lot of facts that we hadn’t heard before including that Jen Shah was deposed in a substantial FTC lawsuit with regards to the same acts and companies well before she agreed to be a part of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.

There is a lot of information here so get a snack and let’s get into it.

Bill Cosby Conviction Overturned

Well….the 5th Amendment is still a thing and the Bill Cosby conviction has been overturned because of statements used in his second trial. In this episode, I break down why the court made the ruling they did, my thoughts on the ruling, and how the Constitution informs our criminal laws.

Britney Speaks.

On June 23, 2021, Britney Spears spoke at a status conference for her Conservatorship. It was a rare moment in open court, broadcast for the media and the world to hear how she was feeling. She spoke clearly and quickly as if she was worried she wouldn’t be allowed to get all of her statements out, or that she wouldn’t be heard. It’s clear that in 13 years of this conservatorship what the #FreeBritney movement has feared is largely true. What Britney detailed is heartbreaking. Her lack of autonomy has been widely speculated on and she detailed it painfully. I would love to hear your thoughts on social!
