Incompetent Lawyers Don't Like Being Called Incompetent

Former Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick has been in news again. He is obviously running low on cash. I know this not only because he hasn't been able to pay restitution to the City of Detroit, but because he's had to resort to hiring a bottom of the barrel attorney like Daniel Hajji.

Mr. Hajji represented the former mayor during his recent probation violation hearing as well as the subsequent appeal to the Michigan Court of Appeals. Judge Karen Fort Hood described the motion that Mr. Hajji filed as "grossly noncompliant and inappropriate."

My friend over at the Dyspathy blog then wrote a post entitled "An Incompetent DUI Lawyer Only Gets You So Far" in which he criticized Mr. Hajji's performance. It's well worth the read, in my humble opinion.

Shortly after that post was published, Dyspathy was reportedly served with a cease and desist demand from Daniel Hajji.

From this, one can only deduce that incompetent lawyers like Daniel Hajji do not like being called incompetent. However, if the judge in a given case refers to a given motion that an attorney has prepared as "grossly noncompliant and inappropriate" then I feel that said incompetent attorney really ought to suck it up.

Otherwise, you're justing calling added attention to your own incompetency.
