The rarest of sightings of Mike Postle this week as he appeared in a Zoom court assembly to symbolize himself.
Although the Mike Postle story has been one of many greatest and most carefully scrutinised tales in fashionable poker historical past, now we have heard little or no from the person himself. Other than a questionable look on Mike Matusow’s podcast he has remained silent.
However, yesterday he was compelled to symbolize himself in court as a result of his authorized workforce had requested to be launched from working with him. He appeared reside on Zoom in a digital assembly to reply to the $26,982 in legal professional charges he has been advised to award Todd Witteles following his anti-SLAPP movement.
Postle voluntarily dismissed his personal lawsuit which suggests Witteles’s anti-SLAPP movement (and Veronic Brill’s being heard subsequent week) wins by default. He did not have a lot of a response to that, as a substitute spending many of the listening to lamenting the truth that his authorized counsel deserted him and saying he was harassed by the opposing authorized counsel.
He additionally talked about that there was ‘no proof in any respect’ that he cheated in these reside streamed video games on the Stones Gambling Hall.
He was unsuccessful in getting the charges decreased.
They simply completed the ultimate listening to in Postle’s case in opposition to me. I now have a judgment for legal professional’s charges of $26,982 in opposition to him. This was not a enjoyable expertise, however my legal professional Eric Bensamochan did a spectacular job, and the matter is completed. @Angry_Polak‘s listening to is subsequent week.
