Los Angeles, CA — Full Disclosure Network® is re-releasing a short Internet video presentation (8 min) from a 2001 interview with the notororius Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman. In the hour-long interview he describes the California Supreme Court as "basically a cesspool” consisting of “six hacks and one wonderful justice”.
Available FREE , this Internet preview consists of video clips taken from the two-part interview conducted by Emmy award winning host Leslie Dutton. The controversial Yagman takes on the entire justice system saying that there are "unfair" Federal Judges who hear Civil Rights cases who are generally unfair to anyone who appears before them.
Here are few highlights from the interview:
- When asked how many lawsuits he had filed against the Los Angeles Police Department, Yagman said perhaps 1,500 to 1,600 of which 25 percent get thrown out before trial another 10 or 15 percent settle and 65 percent of them go to trial.
- He describes the LAPD as incompetent and that "it should be done away with"
- WARNING: when describing fellow Civil Rights Attorney Johnny Cochran, Yagman's choice of words had to be bleeped out for cable television consumption. However, the unedited version can be viewed via streaming media on the Full Disclosure® website and from the preview link above.
- He describes his fellow practicing attorneys as "mostly wimp asses who are in business to make money".
