Joel Brodsky: This Witness Isn’t Credible Because He’s Lying–I Mean Confused!

"Nothing against people with mental illness..."

"Nothing against people with mental illness..."

Tuesday afternoon, in response to Thomas Morphey coming forward and giving a detailed account of his knowledge of the events surrounding the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Joel Brodsky held a news conference.

In front of a handful of bored-looking reporters, he recited the same tired defense we’ve heard for the last seventeen months: Thomas Morphey is delusional and suffers from mental illness. He never came to Drew’s house. There was no blue barrel. Not in the past, the present or the future (pretty neat trick that–seeing into the future).

But earlier in the day Joel strayed from the script a little and told Steve Miller of WBBM that maybe Tom was just confused, “There’s probably things in the past that Morphey might have done – helping Drew unload a truck on some job project or something, that Morphey, in his mind, may have twisted around.”

Joel Brodsky did the same thing when the Engagement Stunt fiasco was in the news. Joel at first completely denied that there was any sort of stunt. But, when it got a little hot for him (since the Idiot Woman-child, Christina Raines, claimed that it was in fact, Joel who had plotted it) he hedged a bit saying, “I don’t blame her. She made a mistake. She basically confused a couple of things she overheard and just didn’t know what she was really saying…”

Poor Ric Mims didn’t get the same gentle treatment. When he stated to Nancy Grace that after the weapon seizure Drew showed him a folding gun and said the police “didn’t find this one”, Brodksy called it “simply another fabrication of slick Ric Mims.” Oops. Maybe Brodsky should have hedged on that one as well, since Drew went on to sign that gun over to informant, Paula Stark.

Not even Drew’s mom is spared from accusations that she may not be a very reliable witness. When she was called to testify before the Grand Jury, Joel Brodsky had this to say, “Drew called a few days ago about that. He was upset, concerned. He says his mother really has a slight touch of Alzheimer`s, that she doesn`t remember so well. And he was a little bit concerned about her — you know, her memory

Well, OK, maybe Drew’s mom does have memory problems, but the point is that Joel Brodsky should really pick one disparaging tact per witness and stick to it.

It’s more credible.

  1. LOL

    Morning, Facs and all!

    I remember you saying you were looking forward to seeing how much fatter Humpsky Dumpsky…in the latest I thought he defintely looked older and greyer.

  2. Poor Ric Mims didn’t get the same gentle treatment. When he stated to Nancy Grace that after the weapon seizure Drew showed him a folding gun and said the police “didn’t find this one”, Brodksy called it “simply another fabrication of slick Ric Mims.”

    **************

    Stark has a handwritten contract for the “Transpher [sic] of 1 North American Arms Corp. S.S. .22 cal revolver” from Drew Peterson to Paula Stark dated Feb. 28, right after he returned from New York City, where he appeared on the “Today” show. Stark and Wawczak watched Peterson’s children while he was in New York.

    Drew must have been confused himself, when he participated in the transpher of this gun ownership, in front of one of his son’s, that Brodsky said never happened.

    Are you confused?

  3. Hey Bucket! Good morning.

    Police and prosecutors don’t believe Thomas Morphey’s explosive claims that he helped stepbrother Drew Peterson remove a mysterious blue barrel on the day Peterson’s fourth wife vanished, defense attorney Joel Brodsky contended Tuesday.

    **********

    Then I guess the neighbor that reported seeing this unfold is full of it too?

    Talk on Boobsky.

  4. I wonder…If TM was asked to take a polygraph ? I don’t remember hearing or reading anything about that.

    Anyone know ?

    Good morning…Happy GJ eve.

  5. Yah- you’re on to something, ww. I think that’s why Blobsky backtracked. He doesn’t KNOW if Tom’s taken a polygraph, but claiming it to be his “illness” he’ll try to say that that’s why he passed one. Because he believed it to be true in his ill mind. Blobsky, wot a tosser.

  6. You know Joel and Drew’s take on polygraphs.

    Any question Drew passes is absolute proof he is telling the truth and any that he fails is because polygraphs aren’t real science.

    And any question a potential witness against Drew passes is because polygraphs aren’t real science and any that they fail is absolute proof that the person is lying.

    Why does my brain go back to the Seinfeld episode where Jerry has to take a polygraph and George Costanza gives him advice on how to pass it by saying “Jerry, just remember, it’s not a lie if you believe it.”?

  7. From Todays Chicago Tribune article,
    “If they found him credible [he] would have been one of the first witnesses they brought in [to the grand jury] and they would have based the entire case on his testimony,” Brodsky said.

    Charles Pelkie, spokesman for the state’s attorney’s office, declined to comment on whether Morphey had testified before the grand jury.

    “The only thing I can say is these investigations are moving ahead full steam,” he said, “and we expect to bring one to conclusion.”

  8. I will say that I just cannot understand why Tom hasn’t been called to the GJ yet. That is definitely something that was nagging me the minute that I read Hosey’s article.

    He does seem to be the key – so WTF are they waiting for?? I know they have their statements from interviewing him for hours – I’d imagine it was taped. Couldt the GJ have just looked over that and not needed him to be present? There has to be a reason.

  9. I could swear that one of the news channels reported that Joel said something to the effect of that Tom’s suicide attempt was further proof of him making this up.

    I personally see it as quite the opposite.

    Does anyone know if Joel’s whole news release made it out on the internet anywhere?

  10. A polygraph would be a great idea for Morphey. I also wonder if they have checked phone records and if they coincide with the times that Morphey says he and Drew spoke.

    Also, it’s interesting that Drew places himself in Tom’s company the day before Stacy disappeared (he says he attempted to take him to a job interview) and also admits to seeking Tom out and visiting him in the hospital on the 30th.

    He disputes ever seeing Tom on the 28th but there should be phone records from the 29th corroborating Tom’s claim that they spoke on that day.

    That’s just A LOT of interaction between those two during that time period even if you excise the parts that Drew says didn’t happen.

  11. Obviously LE listened to Morphey and considered his statements to be credible. Otherwise they would not have obtained a search warrant for Drew’s premises to look for:

    objects containing or having traces of blue plastic, lead weights, plastic shavings and scuff marks, circular impressions or carpet indentations and any other indication of a plastic or barrel-like object.

  12. The GJ is a tool. Why is it necessary that Tom Morphey appear?

    Why is it necessary that Lenny and Paula appear?

    Why is is necessary that Mary Pontarelli appear?

    If a GJ can indict a ham sandwich, as so many attorneys like to use the term on the tv news , why should these people even be needed to appear before the GJ?

    Anyone who appears before the GJ can discuss their testimony with whoever they please. Or, their testimony possibly leaked. So, why subject them to the GJ if it’s not necessary?

    Besides, what was accomplished by Drew Peterson appearing before the GJ? He plead the Fifth! He was a waste of time.

    Just askin……

  13. I agree Rescue, also they may have enough evidence for an indictment without Morphy’s testimony and were keeping him for a key witness at trial.

  14. I guess since they called so many miscellaneous people to the GJ it is just odd that they didn’t call some potentially “key” witnesses and still haven’t filed charges.

    It is just impatience setting in.

    On one of the other forums I visit, someone pointed out that Glasgow boasts about a 95% conviction rate. That number could be so high because he only charges on the softball cases and doesn’t levy charges on the challenging ones.

    I go back to my cake and eat it too – I want them to do a thorough job but want it to be faster.

  15. A Tom Morphey Timeline.
    Compiled using statements from Tom Morphey and his friend Walter Martinek

    October 27:

    – Drew Peterson shows up at Thomas Morphey’s home, ostensibly to take him to a nearby Meijer store to interview for job.

    – Instead Peterson drives Morphey to the Remington Lakes park.

    – Peterson begins to discuss Stacy with Morphey. Peterson says that Stacy is cheating on him and states he has to take care of the problem. He asks Morphey if he loves him enough to kill for him. Morphey says that he loves him but that he couldn’t live with himself if he killed someone. Drew asks if he could live with knowing about it. Morphey says he could – that he always assumed Drew had killed Kathleen.

    – Peterson drives him to storage facility where Morphey attempts to rent a unit, but lacks the required State ID.

    – Peterson drives Morphey home.

    – A few hours later Morphey calls Peterson and says he can’t be involved in Peterson’s plan. Peterson says he can respect that.

    October 28:

    – Peterson shows up at Morphey’s home. They get coffee at a Starbucks drive-through and then Peterson drives him to a park off Weber Road.

    – Peterson hands Morphey a cell phone, instructing him not to answer it.

    – Forty-five minutes later the phone rings and then rings again. The caller ID shows “Stacy”.

    – Within an hour of the calls Peterson returns to the park and picks up Morphey. He asks Morphey to help him move something.

    – They drive to Peterson’s house where the childrens’ bedroom doors are closed and Peterson tells him to be quiet. Peterson pushes a blue barrel out of his bedroom. Morphey helps Peterson carry the barrel down the stairs, out of the house and into the Denali.

    – At some point Peterson gives Morphey some money.

    – Peterson then drives Morphey home and tells him “This never happened.”

    – 9:45 Morphey calls Martinek and says he needs to talk.

    – Shortly before 10:00 Morphey visits his friend, Walter Martinek and tells him that he thinks he has just helped dispose of Stacy’s body.

    October 29:

    – Morphey speaks to Peterson on the phone and tells him that he wants to hang himself. Peterson tells him not to worry.

    – That night Morphey begins drinking and calls a brother who advises him to speak to the FBI. Morphey hangs up and overdoses on prescription pills. The brother calls 911. Morphey is taken to the Edward Hospital in Naperville.

    October 30:

    – Peterson shows up at Morphey’s house. Morphey’s girlfriend answers the door. She tells him about Morphey’s suicide attempt. Peterson drives to the hospital and speaks with Morphey. (Morphey doesn’t recollect the visit very well.)

    – Martineck arrives at Morphey’s house and drives Sheryl Alcox(Morphey’s girlfriend) to District 5 State Police Headquarters in Crest Hill

    – State police show up at the hospital after Peterson leaves.

    October 31:

    – Tom Morphey is offered an immunity deal by Will County State’s Attorney, James Glasgow.

  16. Oh, and maybe, just once, a reporter can ask “Attorney” Brodsky if every potential witness in a criminal investigation is called before a GJ, and what may be the reason/s for not calling one, other than his well-known version.

    I’d like to hear the strategies myself on why a potential witness would not be offered up to a GJ if the suspect can be criminally charged without those witnesses.

    Drew Peterson Appeals Ex-Wife’s Estate to Illinois Supreme Court
    Peterson’s attorney files brief with court today.
    thepublicityagency.com – March 11, 2009

    (PRNewsChannel) / Chicago, Ill. / Drew Peterson is appealing to the Illinois Supreme Court two lower court rulings to reopen the estate of his late wife Kathleen Savio.

    Joel A. Brodsky, one of Peterson’s criminal defense attorneys, filed a brief today with Illinois Supreme Court.

    Peterson and his uncle James Carroll are fighting the re-opening of the Kathleen Savio estate and the appointment of Ann Mario Doman and Henry Savio, Savio’s siblings, as new joint executors.

    Five of Savio’s relatives filed a joint petition in March, 2008 to re-open the estate to prepare for a wrongful death lawsuit against Drew Peterson, according to their lawyer. Two weeks later they filed another petition asking that Doman and Mr. Savio be named as executors.

    Following a defeat last month in the Illinois Appellate Court, Brodsky says he’s taking the case the state’s highest court because he believes the lower courts made an error in deciding which Illinois law applies.

    “We believe there are errors in the appellate court’s decision to reopen the estate which we believe the supreme court can and will rectify,” says Brodsky.

    Savio was Peterson’s third wife. Her body was found in a circular bathtub on March 1, 2004. Her death was initially ruled an accidental drowning. However after Stacy Peterson’s disappearance, her body was exhumed and underwent forensic examination when it was ruled a homicide.

    Drew Peterson denies any involvement in his wife Stacy’s disappearance or in Savio’s death. He has not been charged in connection with either crime.

  18. What a joke that Brodsky has to put out press releases to keep people interested in his legal filings.

    Talk about tooting ones horn. 😉

  19. Well, if they don’t put out a release today – and hit it several times themselves – the most common info about Drewsky on the net will be Hosey’s recent articles.

  20. ….In front of a handful of bored-looking reporters, he recited the same tired defense we’ve heard for the last seventeen months…..

    Probably could not sleep last night, realizing his big “news conference” was a dud.

    Tooting ones horn lol he already said he was going to appeal.

    Well, we KNOW the first phrase in the release is a lie… “Drew Peterson is appealing…”

    LOL!! You made me chuckle!!

  22. I’m tempted to make a new post with the Morphey timeline on it, just to distribute the ‘weight’ more evenly. 🙂

  23. re #20
    October 30:

    – Peterson shows up at Morphey’s house. Morphey’s girlfriend answers the door. She tells him about Morphey’s suicide attempt. Peterson drives to the hospital and speaks with Morphey. Morphey doesn’t recollect the visit very well.

    – State police show up at the hospital after Peterson leaves.

    – Tom Morphey is offered an immunity deal by Will County State’s Attorney, James Glasgow.
    **************************
    Now, why would a “pair of police sources” be looking for a “mystery man” Nov. 23, when they were in Tom’s driveway Nov. 7, and Walter already told them who it was on Oct 30?
    Something does not add up.
    Don’t get me wrong, I am not doubting Tom M’s story at all, it’s just “the neighbor” thing I have a problem with.
    Does anyone know Joe Hosey good enough to ask him to clear this up?

    Check these out:

    Nov 23, 2007 10:31 pm US/Central
    As CBS 2’s Mai Martinez reports, this is not the first time Stacy Peterson’s family has heard about the barrel.
    “Somebody sawing Drew Peterson carrying a barrel with somebody you know, we don’t know,” said family friend Pamela Bosco. “It’s been a while since we heard that, so why it’s coming to the surface now, is there any value in it? I don’t know. I sure hope it leads to something.”
    Bosco says state police want to talk to the “mystery man” the neighbor said helped Drew Peterson load the barrel into the back of Peterson’s now-confiscated sport-utility vehicle.
    http://cbs2chicago.com/local/drew.peterson.suspicion.2.594434.html

    November 28, 2007
    Drew Peterson allegedly visited his relative at the hospital Oct. 30,
    and later that day, state police investigators — who were informed of
    the relative’s statements by the man’s friend — contacted the
    relative at the hospital, one source said.

    On Nov. 7, the relative was contacted outside his home by a Tribune
    reporter. He confirmed he was interviewed by authorities regarding
    Stacy Peterson’s disappearance but then declined further comment. Less
    than 30 seconds later, state police investigators got out of a car in
    the relative’s driveway and ordered the reporter to leave.

    POLICE LOOKING FOR MAN WHO MAY HAVE LOADED RECEPTACLE INTO VEHICLE WITH EX-OFFICER
    BOLINGBROOK — A neighbor told police he spotted Drew Peterson and a mystery man loading a large blue barrel into the disgraced cop’s GMC Denali hours after his young wife was last seen alive, sources said.

    The identity of the man accompanying Peterson was not known, a pair of police sources said.

    “That’s who we’re looking for,” one of the sources said, describing the barrel as blue and large.

    “It’s between 35 and 55 gallons,” he said. “Big enough to put someone in.”

    Cops Say Wife’s Body May Be In Barrel
    One neighbor says he helped Peterson haul a large barrel that was warm to the touch in the Petersons’ SUV, reports CBS’ The Early Show.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/11/28/national/main3547619.shtml
    ************************

    I never saw anything else about a “neighbor”.
    Is it me, or is there something strange here?
    Police trying to protect Tom in the beginning? 😕

  24. Womanscorned – I’d think that the police knew who they were looking for but weren’t showing their hand at that time. They don’t seem like they are ones that are naming witnesses.

    We all find out who are potential witnesses based on who has come forward to the media, rumors from family/friends, and who is recognized going into where the GJ is being held.

  25. To me it just looks like reporter confusion. Like when reporters keep calling Morphey Drew’s “brother-in-law” rather than “step-brother”.

  26. I added something to the timeline:

    “- Martineck arrives at Morphey’s house and drives Sheryl Alcox(Morphey’s girlfriend) to District 5 State Police Headquarters in Crest Hill”

  27. In the beginning it was Tom Morphy that said the reason that he thought Stacy was in the barrel was because it was warm to the touch, and now they say a neighbour is to have said that….I am confused…

  28. That’s why, when taking bits and pieces of news articles, it’s best to choose the ones that have actual quotes from those that pertain to the involved parties. Newspapers and reporters tend to insert their own ideas – Hosey does that a lot.

    As to the neighbor and the blue barrel, I’ve never seen anything to contradict that it was not reported correctly. In other words, no one came out and specifically said that was untrue, such as law enforcement confirming that the truck driver story was false.

  29. qhorses – I really think that was just a CBS screw up on the news. These guys never have their own sources any more and report what other shows or newspapers report as if they had the news firsthand.

    I think someone married the two stories of a neighbor seeing Drew and someone move a blue container along with Morphey’s friend’s report about what Morphey had told him before attempting suicide.

    My daughter was at a pizza place when a girl from my older daughter’s class drove a car into the crowd of kids, through the storefront, and into the pizza place hitting several children. The newspapers had all kinds of things wrong in their reports and one of the quotes was from a police officer saying the girl was parked in front of the pizza place and accidentally went forward instead of reverse yet my daughter and another girl in the car said that they were driving through the parking lot when the girl lost control of the car.

    The media sucks when they try to get news out too quickly.

  30. Qhorses @#36: The “neighbor” referred to in this story is Morphey, not the person who saw the transfer of the barrel.

  31. Heh – it looks like Brodsky must have had someone do a little Internet research for him, so he could be sure and repeat the correct words when holding yesterday’s news conference.

    This is from November, 2007

    Peterson’s attorney is denying reports about a family member helping the former police officer remove a blue barrel from his home after Stacy Peterson was reported missing.

    Joel Brodsky, Peterson’s attorney, said the family member has a history of mental problems, alcoholism and suicide attempts. The family member might want attention or living in “a fantasy world,” Brodsky said.

    Word for word.

  32. TAI, no kidding. It’s usually the earliest reports that get things confused as well. They want to be first!

  33. I wish we could have seen some of the question and answers after Brodsky’s official statement.

    I saw a bit on the news last night where Joel was telling a reporter that Tom’s motivation for lying might have been because he wanted to impress his family.

    Morphey may be making up the whole story to win approval from his family because he’s their black sheep, Brodsky said.

    Well, that veers pretty far from him being delusional. So which is it? Is he drugged out of his mind, delusional, hallucinating, or intentionally lying in order to get attention and win the favor of his family?

    I realize that Joel is not going to respond by admitting that Tom’s tale is true, but the thing is, he doesn’t have to say anything. Why respond at all if he can’t even stick to a response?

  34. Facs – I wish that some site would put their raw footage out on their site like some of the Orlando ones do in the Casey Anthony case. I hate only seeing selected tidbits because they can be taken out of context to make a news story.

    I still don’t get how Joel could think that this article was Morphey trying to impress his family or look like a hero. The guy admitted that he was ready to live with knowing that Drew killed somebody and still helped move the container after he thought to himself that it may have been Stacy.

    His comments have many people thinking he isn’t as good of a guy as they originally thought. How does that make him appear like a hero? What benefit does he get from coming forward with this information? He may even have screwed himself out of an immunity deal.

  35. Why doesn’t Joel just show some proof that the conversations didn’t take place? Cell phone records, alibis, etc.?

    Or is that a timeline issue? 😉

  36. Morphey may be making up the whole story to win approval from his family because he’s their black sheep, Brodsky said.

    So who does Tom jump over in the family ranks if he admits to accept knowing someone was killed and hide that crime???

    Would that mean that someone that actually committed murder would be the new black sheep of the family?? 😉

    That argument by Joel is such a stretch!! He should have stuck with the alcoholic, drug-addict theory instead because some people would consider it.

  37. TAI – I agree completely! Morphey’s now stepping forward and exposing himself to the scrutiny of the press, the public and his family looks to me as a brave/last ditch attempt to make amends and do whatever he thinks it will take to put the pressure back on Drew.

    None of his actions during those days were heroic or praiseworthy and he knows it. That’s why he tried to kill himself!

    “So he continues telling this fantasy because it’s getting him the results he wants, which is to be well-liked and admired.”

    Brodsky is nuts if he thinks anyone is going to buy that ‘impress the family’ idea as a motivation for Morphey.

  38. Good point Noway. In fact, if Drew is brought to trial it seems very unlikely that he would even testify due to concern of a very aggressive cross-examination.

    So how would what Drew says even get entered into the trial except in the opening and closing statements?? Not an effective defensive move IMO.

  39. My brain just nudged me and said “Maybe the hearsay law was put into effect to protect Morphey, Lenny, and Paula rather than be used to pull up old information from Kathleen” – which in a round about way could help both of these cases.

    Think about it – there could be an argument that the law was put in place after Stacy’s disappearance and Kathleen’s death so if used in either of those cases it would very likely be appealed as high as possible.

    But if the law is in place now – that would protect the State’s ability to bring in any GJ testimony or taped police interviews with any of these potential witnesses. Of course it would also be subject to appeal – but the defense could have a harder time winning that argument IMO.

  40. So Joel thinks Tom Morphey came up with the story about helping Drew so that he (Tom) would no longer be the black sheep of the family?

    What a quack!

    How does that work?

    “I was the black sheep of our family, until I made up a story about my stepbrother killing his wife and me helping him get rid of the body. Now my stepbrother is the black sheep!”

    Umm…I don’t think so!

  41. If they are going to try to use this kind of tactic at trial time, they are going to have to ask for a change of venue to Dumass County for it to fly.

  42. And (in Joel’s world) from Tom’s family: “We’re so impressed with the story Tom made up!

    We’re not going to ask for any kind of evidence that Drew did what Tom says he did. We’re just going to blindly accept it. Drew is the new black sheep!

    Let’s here it for Tom!”

    Does Joel have any idea how ridiculous he sounds?

    All just my opinion of course. 🙂

  43. Noway – Look on the bright side. You’ve just increased your chances of getting a job with Selig’s company if you ever want one. LOL!

  44. Well, I do need a job but won’t want to start until September … and I don’t think I could ever bring myself to work for Selig, even though my typos show that I am more than qualified!
    😀

  45. Someone on Steve Miller’s blog left a comment and mentioned this:

    Heard Mr. Brodsky on another radio show this afternoon, and he stated they still have a private detective working to find Stacy. However, when reporter ask are they spending 40 hours, Mr. Brodsky wouldn’t answer. But commented it is a women and her only case. Wouldn’t give out her name…..

    My guess is it’s Chrissy obsessively Googling for pictures of Stacy to see if she is wearing any of her jewelry.

  46. LMAO Facs! I’ll have to be a bit more desperate to contact Selig. 😉

    The woman PI is probably someone Drew’s been chatting with online. He wouldn’t give out her name because HotMama doesn’t sound like the name of a legitimate PI.

  47. My apologies if there really is someone out there with the nickname HotMama who has been chatting with Drew but is not a PI.

    -NoWay-

  48. Re the neighbor story –

    Consider this:

    If a story gets in the paper about Drew being seen with another man carrying a barrel into a car that means Drew then KNOWS he’s been seen (!!)

    Not good if he really were carrying a barrel out of his house.

    He has to be wondering all along WHO did see him that night as he cannot possibly know no one saw him !!

  49. For some reason seeing Drew prance around the bars and in front of the media makes me think he really doesn’t wonder or worry.

  50. Has anyone also considered the very awkward position Thomas Morphey was put into by Drew selecting him as an accomplice.

    Drew is family (Thomas’s stepbrother) and a Police Sergeant and here he is testing Thomas’s loyalty about killing someone or knowing about a killing !!

    With a Police Sergeant/stepbrother like that who needs enemies (!!)

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    He does worry when it concerns his own skin and he would be tormenting and hassling this neighbor if he knew their identity.

  52. Joel Brodsky held a news conference.

    In front of a handful of bored-looking reporters, he recited the same tired defense we’ve heard for the last seventeen months: Thomas Morphey is delusional and suffers from mental illness. He never came to Drew’s house. There was no blue barrel. Not in the past, the present or the future.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Is that called a “news conference” ??

  53. Brodsky should really get on Sell-It about the fact NONE of his press releases has highlighted JB’s soothsaying abilities, “There was no blue barrel. Not in the past, the present or the future.”

  54. Yeah, I would imagine that clairvoyance would be a highly sought-after skill in the lawyerin’ businesss.

    I wonder if it was the neighbor who moved. Wasn’t one of the houses near Drew for sale
    ———————
    Drove by Pheasant Chase late last week and did see a small moving truck at the neighbor to the right of the suspect. There was no for sale sign up, but did see one over the summer.

    Had read/heard they got tired of all the stuff going on with his neighbor.

  56. Would Thomas Morphey have any recourse/grounds to sue Joel Brodsky for making such slanderous remarks like calling a “Press Conference” to publicly state Thomas Morphey is suffering from a mental illness.

    Isn’t it time someone stops Joel Brodsky and his wild accusations ?

    The woman PI is probably someone Drew’s been chatting with online. He wouldn’t give out her name because HotMama doesn’t sound like the name of a legitimate PI.

    rofl!

  58. Since Joel is always talking about “hard evidence”

    What “hard evidence” does Joel Brodksy have that Thomas Morphey is suffering from mental illnesses ??

  59. Gatekeep,

    Thanks but got post there….

    In new Hosey article on Savio will, the Savio attorney states…
    Martin Glink, one of the attorneys representing the Kathleeen Savio’s family, did not consider Brodsky’s appeal to the Supreme Court to be much of a threat to his case.

    “I would doubt very much the Supreme Court would find this novel enough to hear,” Glink said.

    “I don’t think it raises any conflict among the judicial circuits,” he said. “I think what the appellate court did and what Judge Goodman did was correct.”
