Joffe Loses King & Spalding Wrongful Termination Trial With Call-In Line UNlike Maxwell

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 29 – David Joffe is a lawyer who sued King & Spalding for wrongful termination.   

   On October 18 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it, below. Nine days later she would refer to dirty laundry as the trial approached.

  On October 18 there was talk of Joffe calling as witnesses some current King & Spalding employees.

The defense asked for notice, and about how they will be permitted to cross-examine.

On October 22 Judge Caproni held another conference, and Inner City Press again covered it. Joffe was asked what witnesses he will call. He will be the first witness, and a King & Spalding-er he's requesting come north from Atlanta. Judge Caproni said he runs a fast trial, to have next witnesses ready.

And on October 27 Judge Caproni held another conference, which Inner City Press again covered. Judge Caproni cautioned against lengthy reading of transcripts to the jurors, urging instead that the parties reach stipulations. I can't force you, though, she said. In which case, the transcripts should be limited to only the most relevant portions. She also cautioned that dirty laundry would come out.

And it did. On November 29, in a proceeding for which there was a call-in line unlike US v. Ghislaine Maxwell elsewhere in SDNY on the same day, the jury ruled against Joffe. He has lost.

The case was Joffe v. King & Spalding LLP, 17-cv-3392 (Caproni)
