Another Assault At LabaToilet?

Sounds like a great place to work:

"I quit labaton several weeks ago after I too was assaulted in front of several witnesses in the eating area and no one confronted/reported the asshole who hit me to anyone, including me because we were all afraid of losing our jobs, just as happened to other people recently. Keep in mind that I am a woman and my attacker is a male foreign educated attorney."

This just sounds too weird to be true.

Templand is full of ghetto shit. That's what happens when you mingle with low-level people. It feels more like you are living in Washington Heights than working at a law firm. Dogs...actually I prefer dogs, at least they act like animals because they ARE animals.

i call bullshit, this person quit but didnt say anything about the assault, just to leave the assaulter to do it again? anybody can send Tom an email and say something happen somewhere...

I do not at all believe this person's story about being "hit". Possibly this person perceived she/he was being assaulted. That said, it may have been someone brushing by her a bit, as an accident. I've never seen that type of behavoir in any doc review gig, with one exception e.g. fan incident.

I know long hours make you crazy, but if one is getting to the point they believe their fellow doc reviewers are assaulting them at work, then maybe it is in that person's mind's eye and they need a rest.

If somene came into my office and told me that story, I'd send the alleged victim home for some R&R merely to protect the other doc reviewers from what clearly will become an anger blow up from this person, and any, any minute.

I wonder if there isn't some sort of transference issue going on here by the alleged victim as to her feelings about the Associates or staff atotrneys at the firm? Possible workmens comp claim seeker. Heh that is an idea.... better alternative to doc review in this market I guess. Creative, if true.

Labaton is a joke. After they let me go, they insisted I sign a non-disparagement agreement when I went to pick up my paycheck a few weeks later.

Now I hear all this shit about assaults occurring in the workplace and everyone sitting on their hands not doing anything about it.

People, its really not worth the $32 an hour to be treated like this!

By the way, regarding this disparagement agreement:

I laughed in their face, asked them what incentive there is for me to sign that dreck, took my final paycheck and stormed out.

Ok snuggie people lets get to the real dirt:

Is that fool MB still at LabaToilet? I see he is still listed on their website.

Maybe he could be joined there by the newly "liberated" Alex Gaylard, and the two could settle their alleged longstanding issues (supposedly Gaylard played a role in MB's firing from Sullivan) right there on the spot at Labatoilet.

It would be a "battle of the labatoilet-bowl" right there on the coding floor, sure Gaylard is taller and a dweeb but MB is military trained and would undoubtedly not hesitate to kick Gaylard's legs out from under him and proceed to...hide in a closet and call the police like a pussy. Actually the real question is which one of these wimps would call the po-po first.

Anyway, as for MB - what happened to him?

As an economist, I am astonished that the American economics profession has no awareness whatsoever that the U.S. economy has been destroyed by the offshoring of U.S. GDP to overseas countries. U.S. corporations, in pursuit of absolute advantage or lowest labor costs and maximum CEO "performance bonuses," have moved the production of goods and services marketed to Americans to China, India, and elsewhere abroad. When I read economists describe offshoring as free trade based on comparative advantage, I realize that there is no intelligence or integrity in the American economics profession.
Intelligence and integrity have been purchased by money. The transnational or global U.S. corporations pay multi-million dollar compensation packages to top managers, who achieve these "performance awards" by replacing U.S. labor with foreign labor. While Washington worries about "the Muslim threat," Wall Street, U.S. corporations and "free market" shills destroy the U.S. economy and the prospects of tens of millions of Americans.
Americans, or most of them, have proved to be putty in the hands of the police state.

With over 21 percent unemployment as measured by the methodology of 1980, with American jobs, GDP, and technology having been given to China and India, with war being Washington’s greatest commitment, with the dollar over-burdened with debt, with civil liberty sacrificed to the "war on terror," the liberty and prosperity of the American people have been thrown into the trash bin of history.

I suppose the passage of this last weekend's healthcare legislation is proof positive in support of the prior blogger's argument? I kind of think so. It is rather what we call "an admission".

Certainly would have made me happier if the Great Oz in the WH had done something other than this, to only reinforce something, rather than take the leadership and try "to turn a sinking boat around", and find a new protective cove while repairing (other than government programs and government jobs i.e. nothing real or fundamental to a vibrant capitalist system).

That he couldn't or wouldn't make all effort, and apply the best (other than ideologues) to try to turn the boat around tells me he can't (sail) e.g. can't lead.

Doesn't know where to find the tools, no differently than not knowing how to identify nor raise the "main sail"..probably wouldn 't even know where to find the in-board engine, nor how to get it all ready to launch e.g. doesn't understand how to build nor generate private equity and/or capital.

The guy has no true talent, other than knowing how to talk. If you put him to the task to actually solve a problem that made a difference rather than reaffirm a losing situation, he absolutely would be one lost bunny. Doesn't have the background to do anything but talk, smile, and run a dog and pony show.

And if you don't think so then look at all the fits that the racist, wannabe elitist, right wing crackas & jews are throwing. They know that they no longer have yet another badge of their 'superiority' or priviledge to themselves anymore. Now the mud people have some semblance of healthcare like the devils.

As Congress raced to leave Washington for its Easter recess, a Republican senator blocked a stopgap bill to extend jobless benefits, saying its $9 billion cost should not be added to the national debt.

As a result, some people who have been out of work for more than six months will at least temporarily lose benefits. Newly jobless people won't be eligible to sign up for generous health insurance subsidies.

At the center of the battle is Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who's insisting that the measure be "paid for" so as not to add to the nation's $12.7 trillion debt.

"What we are doing is stealing future opportunity from our children," Coburn said Thursday.

Republicans offered legislation to finance the monthlong extension of jobless benefits by rescinding unspent money from last year's economic stimulus bill. The effort was killed on a party-line vote.

Democrats repeatedly sought speedy Senate approval of a House-passed measure that would extend jobless benefits through May 5, but Coburn objected. Republicans said Senate negotiations produced a compromise that didn't pass muster in the House.

Jim Manley, a spokesman for Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Senate would attempt to retroactively bestow the jobless benefits when it returns from its spring recess April 12.

The practical effect of the lapse in benefits would be limited if they are awarded retroactively. But labor advocates say it produces bureacratic nightmares for state labor departments and that trying to restore the lapsed benefits is easier said than done.

Reid had the option of keeping the Senate in session to force a vote to try to break through the GOP blocking tactics but instead will revisit the issue in 2 1/2 weeks.

The clash comes less than a month after Republicans abandoned a similar battle that led to an interruption in unemployment benefits eligibility for some people and a two-day furlough for about 2,000 Transportation Department employees.

A stopgap law enacted early this month extends though April 5 unemployment insurance for people who have been out of a job for more than six months, provides health insurance subsidies for the jobless and protects doctors from a sharp cut in Medicare payments.

But another short-term extension of the jobless benefits is needed while House and Senate Democrats work through negotiations on a long-term measure that would provide them through the end of the year. Those talks have slowed, prompting Democrats to move to extend benefits for an additional month.

Last month, Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., blocked a similar extension of jobless benefits, but Republicans ended up on the losing end of a public relations battle and Bunning backed away.

The House passed the stopgap bill last week by a voice vote.

Democratic leaders say that jobless benefits are an emergency and don't need to conform to the new pay-as-you-go budget law, which requires new benefit programs to be offset with spending cuts or tax increases so they don't increase the deficit.

"We really believe that the unemployment situation is an emergency economic situation. Republicans do not accept that," said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the majority whip. "They want to cut off unemployment benefits or pay for it with stimulus funds that are creating jobs."

Regardless of the debate re UE benefits' extensions, the reality is that for those laid off @ 10/2009-11/2009, their benefits will be terminated at a time between 6/4/2010 and 7/4/2010-- unless able to nail down doc review assignments since
Fall,2009.

We can expect increasingly more slimy, cunning, and ruthless behavoir between and amongst the doc review corps members because of these facts. This is particularly true if nothing ramps up between 4/5/2010 - 6/10/2010.

Keep in mind that the Summer Associates (of those firms who still retain such programs) start @ 6/1/2010. Then, all of the 1Ls and 2Ls, plus May, 2010 minted JDs, hitting the market @ 6/1.

Start applying to Starbucks for Barrista positions (at least there is healthcare) before the 1Ls, 2Ls, and just minted JDs take those jobs.

The DAs Offices and the NYSSCt Court Attorney offices already have too many experienced attorneys working for free, who themselves now will exhaust their UE benefits by mid-June or July, if not sooner, since they've been working for free, and there have been not enough doc review gigs to supplement even working for free.

Summer will be ugly unless the market ramps up with projects of substance.

9:39 -

The REAL truth about the need for a DC Bar license is DC courts decided a few years ago to allow Pending Bar applicants to do certain kinds of legal work like doc review for 365 days while still pending. HOWEVER, an individual employer can impose a stricter requirement. Thus, some agencies can require a DC license even though the courts only require pending status. Some agencies impose a higher requirement so they can be more competitive in their contract bids.

Anonymous said...

And yes, it generally takes about a year to go from pending status to licensed in DC.

Relying on someone's story is always not wise until one has garnered all objective facts, and learned independently , at arms length, the facts from both sides of the alleged "story".

It is the usual ASSUME metaphor. That is, merely because someone is an attorney, dangerous to assume they are telling the truth....you know what that might make you on the ASSUME theory.

I am not sure if I believe he drop-kicked her but I believe something happened. In DC projects overweight black women using themselves to harshly bump into someone who's slim and will say"oh excuse me" only after you look at them so they can make it seem like an accident. Feds need to regulate doc review and lock up workplace bullies--or send them off to war and see how hardcore they are. It's plantation negro behavior.

Thank you above bloggers. Bullying is the REAL issue on these projects. Have witnessed it oftentimes. The usual victims generally are the blonde, tall, svelt, well dressed, well mannered, and well educated women, and it is broader than mere bullying.

It generally escalates to all forms of sabotage, merely to have the above population moved off the project so that the "friends of friends" on the project then can get hired...it is pretty much like kindergarten. Just human nature. That said, the above populations is generally bullied by both women and men.

Anonymous said...

To the contrary of what the lying, ignorant, head in the sand crackas above are saying about lawland workplace bullying....I find it that most often the bulliers are usually Jewish partners or senior associates who terrorize all who are beneath them at any firm where they are.

Jewy, passive aggressive, snake, prick, devil firm partners and senior associates are a pox upon the so called 'profession'. They are the ones who make law a living hell for all others. They even sometimes make it hell for their tribesmen and women who occupy positions below them.

I have seen these devils, and their minions, bully their lawland slaves verbally, psycologically and, as hard as it is to believe (due to their usually inferior physical stature), even physically.

Besides, what the hell is any alledgedly attractive, slim, blonde white cunty biotch doing in doc review anyways? You are supposed to be running the lower echelons of biglaw. Your pussy pass should be your guaran-damn- tee on keeping your jew and wasp partner overlords pleased enough with you to make it so that you don't even know what doc review is.

The fact that you are in doc review reveals you to be lying about your attractiveness or that you are social and mental retards.

The limited kneegroidian pushback is only a natural response to all the abuse and marginaliztion that the devilish jew and wasp overlords heap upon them.

Kneegrows have an excuse for being in doc review. White and jew cunty biotches have none. Especially not in today's age and time.

However, even with the truths that I just stated, I see nothing in law that is worth commiting battery against a doc reviewer for. As much as I believe that many the devils who control lawland do, indeed, deserve some serious ass whooping from some Nat Turner like lawland slaves....I really don't see the purpose of doc reviewers hitting doc reviewers.

And if the Nigerian....let's face it....the poster above is correct....'foreign educated' was PC for Nigerian...doc reviewer did strike a female doc review monkey....no matter her race....well, I would be inclined to whoop his ass too.

Why are any foreigners on any of these jobs anyways? I will tell you why...The devilish overlords want it that way. They despise you american mud people so much that they would hire foreigners to take your jobs and even beat you. Yet another form of overlord work place bullying of those who are beneath them.

Anonymous said...

Yes, bullying is a huge issue, and its worse on the part of the women than for men. Often men are afraid to resort to such childish behavior, as they might be branded as even bigger losers/cowards. Hope and pray that you are not being supervised by a woman uglier than you are because she will try to make your life hell!!

Ivy Temp said...

I am always bullied by the ugly fat chicks. It's true someone like me really should not be in doc review. To be honest, I had a plethora of job offers - and still do - the problem is that having been protected by Daddy all these years I have become a bit of a diva. [If asking for decent human behaviour and a nice clean office is being a diva, then yes I am one]. I only occasionally work doc review - usually when I have quit my umpteenth job. I just can't stand the hell law has become - the workload, the sleazy partners, the ghetto staffers -- uuuuck, it's enough to make a girl want to slash her wrists in her Carrara bathtub. Yes, I am a serial quitter. I am simply searching for a nice decent place with some nice decent [and hot] people. Is that too much to ask for? In the meantime I do a little doc review with weirdos -- usually I don't even get placed because the ugly recruiters are too jealous. I've mostly been relying on Dad's old friends but they all want sexual favors in return - however, I find myself repulsed by their sallow withering skin and saggy asses. Who needs to induce bulimia when you see such sights - the vomit just comes pouring out automatically. It's not that easy for pretty girls like me. You always have to put out something in return. I'd rather work like a mule [like the ugly chicks] than pleasure some wrinkled partner with stained underpants.

Anonymous said...

Ivy Temp: Your 'schick' is actually an amazingly accurate description of many of the hot, lesser talented, lesser willing to put out, diva like white biotches that one sees in law. And they do quit their jobs frequently if someone even sneezes in their general direction from yards away.

But, as the other poster above stated, god forbid, male or female, one has to be supervised by an entitlement minded white or jew biotch.....The only thing worse is being supervised by their senior jew partner devilsh overlords.

But missy, please quite blaming the powerless kneegrows for your ailments...If you just hunkered down and decided to make use of your golden pussy pass...then life would be grand. Not so for the kneegrow save for an occaisional token magic one that looks like Hallie Berry or can charm the pants off white and commie jew men and women like Barak Obama.

You gots some gold between them labias and butt checks. Heck you got 3 gold mines that can be exploited. Get to work, get ruthless like some many of your sisteren and quit whining about the poor, disgarded, feckless and powerless kneegrows.

@ 11:39, from what I've witnessed in the DC area big (and sometimes normal sized) black women bully other people of color (including blacks)who are slim. They rarely bother whites (male or female) because they worship them; though I've seen them co-conspire with them. I'm referring to 'amongst doc reviewers'--I'm sure the circumstances are different or more inclusive should they be supervisors.

p.s.: @Anonymous 12:49PM. I'm not white. People have to learn to speak about what's right regardless of color, not going to justify bad behavior because someone may be of the same race, that's rididculous whether a black or white person does it.

Bullying is done by men and by women, regardless of race or ethnicity. It generally is a reflection of low esteem and a belief that one can be abusive to compensate for one's sense of inadequacy....rather than crying about their situation, they lash out at others. Just human nature, but more importantly, reflective of stupidity.

Seems like 12:16AM relishes in the concept that he can be a "bully". Or do his laughs reflect that he approves of the concept of using bullying, or the idea that his friends or others get way with utilizing bullying, but want to call it something else, or justify by some other logic, or maybe even extend it to the concept that it is always justified if you can get away with it, and no one fights back to call one on the bullying.

Interesting for someone assumedly licensed to be an attorney.

His reaction leads me to think he must believe instead in the concept of always resorting to "street justice", outside of the system, rather than in the rule of law, or that he rejects the concept of treating others as one would like to be treated.

Amazing the clear hate mongering and unusual negativity that exists amongst bloggers to this site. I well know that this doc review existence erodes the soul and the perspective. But, heh, maybe it is worth ones' mental and emotional health to just leave this world and work somewhere like Lowes or Starbucks for a time, where customer service is rather important. Maybe you'd finally learn people skills, something law school and its experience seems to take away from each of us.....such a negative experience and profession. Maybe it isnt' worth it, if you end up a Dr. Scrooge or worse...there is too too much life out there and you only go around once. Consider the concept you are wasting your time just blowing negativity. It is killing you clearly. Your mind's eye, attitude, perspective, and negativity MUST be a real drag on the personal life, these days.

At least with Target or Duane Reade you know it'll be ghetto - but with law you didn't. You thought you were an educated decent person and entering a noble profession. It's good to vent and be angry and indignant [good hard-working people do get mad about injustices] cry, but then you have to wipe your tears and move on - the world does...but a good vent or two helps...

I say use the law to your advantage. Document everything, get first and last names of perpetrators and witnesses--then write to their bar associations and take evidence to an attorney removed from document review land and see if you can implement civil suits. Maybe even write to the law firms that contracted the twmp agency (that may be an ethical question?)Maybe the dregs and predators can be squeezed out so only quality, civilized attorneys remain in the field.

Perhaps you should note the title where it says 2nd assault at Labaton and read earlier log where an individual did stand up to an assaulter, & filed a criminal charge against the "attacker" only to be fired. Apparently labaton refuses to pay the ambulance fee used to transport him to the hospital. If these events are true it is understandable that someone might decide to sacrifice personal pride for a paycheck. To support a family.

You Labaton Fools and Niggerian Trolls need to stop posting on this site. at least MB tried to uphold standards which was how he came into confrontation with shit head sola: Sola would touch the women in an inappropriate creepy fashion,fart and then leave the room, and who stank to high heaven b/c he wore the same pair of sneakers for 5 months straight.

Even more creepy he would tell everyone about his sketchy "asian massages" in noxious detail. I pity the poor korean hooker who had to service that walking hiv factory.

2:53. You're a moron. ONE need only zealously represent their client, not "fearlessly." When people perceive a weak job market environment, they'll go to great lengths to cling on to their job to support their family even if it means being assaulted. Lets face it: no matter what the victim does, it will still not compensate for the wage he loses. Although, being single without a family, I'd probably go after labaton since Labaton was already on notice and did not terminate the loser. Of course, I'd initially be out thousands of bucks and the case may not be resolved for years.
