Elizabeth Warren Defrauded Asbestos Victims While Practicing Law Without a License

Laws? They’re for little people. Laws don’t apply to Harvard professors. They apply to Harvard janitors.

Compassion? Liberals are great at that. Just ask Elizabeth Warren who was paid nearly a quarter of a million dollars to help Travelers Insurance deny asbestos compensation to asbestos victims… and she did it while practicing law without a license. And wearing a fake Cherokee headdress.

After this latest story, I have a feeling that Elizabeth Warren wishes she had run for the Senate in Oklahoma, instead of in Professor Jacobson’s backyard.

Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts.  Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.

As detailed below, there are at least two provisions of Massachusetts law Warren may have violated.  First, on a regular and continuing basis she used her Cambridge office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts.  Second, in addition to operating an office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts, Warren actually practiced law in Massachusetts without being licensed.

Warren refused to disclose the full extent of her private law practice when asked by The Boston Globe.  If Warren denies that she has practiced law in Massachusetts without a license, Warren should disclose the full extent of her private law practice.  The public has a right to assess whether Warren has failed to comply with the most basic requirement imposed on others, the need to become a member of the Bar of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to practice law in and from Massachusetts.

Warren’s Texas Bar information indicates she is not eligible to be licensed in Texas, but does not indicate when she went on that inactive status.  Consistent with our finding that Warren was not admitted in Massachusetts, Warren listed only one other place of admission on her Texas record, New Jersey:

Maybe Warren should think about running for the Senate in Texas. It seems like a state that would be very open to her “You didn’t build that” politics.

Elizabeth Warren was supposed to be the left’s big candidate this election, instead she has become a millstone around their necks. Not only is she not likely to take Brown’s seat, but associating Obama with her, “You didn’t build that” slogan hurt him badly, and the parade of gaffes and lies that she has been tied to, from lying about being a Native American to this latest mess, is hurting the entire Democratic Party.
