City's lawyers search for a meaty lie

What could I possibly have to testify about Nuessegate not already covered in the pages of the Register or in this blog.

I don't know, but attorney Margaret Cannon and her legal team apparently discovered new evidence over the weekend and decided to make me a last-minute addition to the city's witness list. (Check out the video.)

What a load of bogus GOB lies.

It was a good legal move — it got me out of the hearing room — but it was a move that has nothing to do with truth.

The city's legal team was hired to run down the witch-hunt agenda, but the No.1 priority for this group, led by Cannon, an attorney from Cuyahoga County, is to stack up those billable hours. Sheesh, they even worked this past weekend to find that new evidence.

Or make it up.

Oh Yes, billable hours for lawyers. If you want to see the basic game-plan and playbook for prosecuting innocent people and either having the government pay for it, or better yet maybe the spouse of the accused,and then seal the records so that no one can see what the $26,000.00 judgement actualy paid for (that would be legal fees for the GOB lawyers), sorry I got off track a little there. Google David Palmer and you will find many examples of our legal system at work. The clock is ticking, hold on to your wallet! Believe me I have personal knowledge of these actions, once again usually done in closed session, away from public scrutiny. Keep Going Matt

They did not uncover any new evidence this past weekend. This was just a ploy by this crooked lawyer Cannon and her team to pad the expense. They do not have any intention of calling Matt as a witness as they know if he does it will completely ruin their witch-hunt agenda.

Matt, this is about the coffee, not you. Check out the video, it's the coffee.

How about the blogger that said you were a Kevin Baxter butt kisser. Your fan base is impressive, and knowledgable, and they are all yours.

Matt when you need a lawyer for your part of Nussegate, I suggest you don't get Baumgartner's attorney.

It's a bunch of bogus junk to keep Matt from reporting. They had it all planned out. Hang in there, Matt. The GOB's are pulling off one of their sneaky little games that won't go anywhere. I know how they work.

Matt, you seem a little defensive. You have nothing to hide, do you?

Has anyone heard about a motorcycle crash that happened in Sandusky Monday? 2 people, a man and a woman.

Good move, attack the attackers, deflect the attention and your involvment away from you Westerhold. If you have nothing to hide, why worry, just have another reporter cover the story. Your bias has shown in this entire event from day one. You do not allow the facts to get in your way or spin your version of the event. Maybe the real GOB are Nusse, Westerhold and friends!

Good move, Baxter. How long did it take you and your BUDS to come up with this sneaky move on Matt & the SR? About as long as it took you and your sneaky BUDS to figure out how to get a ERIE COUNTY PROBATE ESTATE case filed in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County for a Cuyahoga County judge to FIX?

Will you just give it up on the ERIE CTY. PROBATE ESTATE & CUYAHOGA CTY. thing????? What does that have to do with anything here? No one cares about whatever that issue was? Stay on the article - watch the videos - you can clearly see Ms. Nuesse isn't comfortable. Great job Sams!

Good move, Baxter! So how come we couldn't find a way to get the illegal transfer of real estate that caused defects in the title filed in the wrong jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County? Oh, that's right. That would have been difficult because the property was situated in ERIE COUNTY. Is that why we arranged for it to be handled by the Erie County Common Pleas Court instead of Probate? Fantastic! Impressive! Cuyahoga County attorney crook files Oral Motions and Fraud Prliminary Judicial Reports on behalf of a NON-CLIENT! Fantastic! Impressive!

Preventing Matt Westerhold from reporting was a FIX, too.

TO COMMENT AT 12:07 PM:
What does that have to do with anything here? A LOT! It shows how Lorain County lawyers, retired Lorain County judges, Cuyohoga County judges and Cuyahoga County attorneys are all intertwined with ERIE COUNTY when it comes to ILLEGAL FIXES. Any more questions?

He's right---it shows a pattern of corruption exists amongst the court systems. And don't forget Ottawa County.

Wasn't it three journalists from the Cleveland Plain Dealer that got the credit for exposing the wide-spread corruption going on in Cuyahoga County?

Great job Sams? Some of you people in Sandumpy are as wacko as your city officials and your court system are! Nuesse should be glad to get out of that evil city.
