The lawsuit

Hey everyone. Hola.

Here is my story that appears in today's editions of the Advertiser: SMITH, 2 OTHER AU PLAYERS FACE ASSAULT LAWSUIT

Though my name doesn't appear on the story, which is odd, I promise that I wrote it. Also, I don't believe the other players are facing a lawsuit. They're just described in the lawsuit as aiding and abetting Smith's alleged wrongdoing.

Also, you're welcome to ready through the lawsuit below. I know it's late ... but I try to come through when I promise something to the HOTTIES. Thanks for your patience.

Ok, my two cents.

I work in the insurance industry and I deal with scumbag attorneys all day. This as b.s. as it comes. Eric Smith has no money, what can they sue for? His parents have no money. The law firm of 3 women is looking publicity.

Their website has pictures of them with Joe Namath, Danny Sheridan, Gene Stallings. They go on Finebaum 5 minutes after the suit was filed. MMMM, ladies, lets not be dumb about it.

I did my Auburn deed, I emailed them and gave them a good ass chewing. I feel better now. The defense rests.

The wording in the suit is Extremely slanted to favor the plaintiff and to establish a halo over his head Michael. If the truth be known, both were probably equally to blame for the incident.

I am just saying, here we all are as Auburn fans assuming Eric Smith in the absolute best possible light, but it may turn out that he is a total jerk who deserves what he is getting.

I am just saying, let's not assume this Jenkins fellow is a lying jerk, and let's also not assume Eric Smith is the devil. Just let it play out and don't defend/attack anyone vehemently when you have no idea what happened. It is OK to assume, however, that bama lawyers eat their young and shed their skin every 7 months.

Michael ...

You have well stated my position ... time and circumstances will reveal the actions and character of Eric Smith and Decari Jenkins.

What is indisputable is that a suit was filed on Auburn's off week before the Alabama when the statute of limitations for such an action, I believe, is TWO YEARS.

There is only one reason to file such an action in such a time frame -- an attempt to embarrass Auburn's football program.

I cannot be convinced of anything else.

I hate 'em and will for the rest of my days.

I'm no lawyer, nor do I play one on tv, but it sure seems that they'd have had a better chance at a nice payday had they waited until near the end of the Statute of Limitations. Then, they'd be in better position to argue to attach his potential NFL earning. So it's clear to me that FSJ's friends in the REC are up to no good once again.

Okay, I read it. Didn't seem that comical to me. Looked pretty standard.

Two Questions:

Who the hell was Decari rushing outside to call? His boys?

Why does the fact that Eric Smith a widely known football player entitle Decari to punitive damages? If Mr. Smith was not a widely known football player, is it safe to assume that there would be no punitive damages sought?

I had a friend who got punched at UT by some random dude after talking some trash while drunk. He had to get his jaw wired shut for a couple of months. He sought punitive damages and won.

Just being devil's advocate here. It does seem pretty stupid to put the well known college football player part in the lawsuit, but I don't know that the entire reason there is a lawsuit is because the guy plays football. But that lawyer is totally bammer scum.

11:19 AM  
Blogger Bro. Jet, The Minister of Hate said...

Phred ...

There is no reason to sue in this matter unless you are seeking punitive damages.

If this goes to court, compensatory damages would be medical bills ... but that's essentially the money he owes for his care. There's no gravy in that for him and the attorney.

Punitives are what he -- and his attorney -- get to keep.

If this should settle, though, you can bet that all the money that changes hands, though, will be conspicuously labeled as compensatory in the settlement because punitive damages are taxable, while compensatories are not. The attorney gets a percentage of all money collected -- compensatory and/or punitive.

My hunches: He was calling other people who has something to do with this fight. Or his mama.

I think the suit would have more legs if Ms. Crew had omitted his status as an athlete. She should have made it about what it is, if that is what it's about. You follow? Judges don't like to look silly.

Regarding earlier posts, I'm with Michael and Jet. If this is all proven to be true in a court of law, then ES has to be gone. That said, innocent till proven guilty, etc.

The timing is beyond dubious, however, as well as the hyperbolic nature in which Finebaum released the info.

HATE BAMA!!

12:07 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

E-Bro, this is a civil suit. ES's had his day in criminal court on this matter. All of these facts have been heard once already, and the coaches are aware of them. There's no need for him to have further punishment from Chiz and Co for something they've already punished him for.

12:11 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

My bad PF.

But I read somewhere last night that an associate athletic director (or something) said that Auburn University was not aware of the new allegations, meaning this isn't what they thought happened back in August.

Either way, even if he's doesn't get kicked off, I'm with michael in what he said earlier Eric Smith being a d'bag if this is all true. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt till anything comes out of this civil case, though.

12:15 PM  
Blogger michael said...

If Chizik learns something new through the civil case that didn't make it through the criminal case, then that is certainly the grounds for further punishment. It's not like a football coach has to have the law involved when he hands out punishments.

I am sure Eric Smith has his side of the story, and I am guessing his side was good enough for the police not to push this further and for Chizik not to punish him further. We will see how this all pans out.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I dunno. Pretty much reads like the same facts to me. If there are new facts, it's because someone withheld information from the police, which usually does not help out in a civil case. The victim doesn't want his integrity questioned.

I would be willing to bet that someone who wasn't paying attention the first time around asked the asst. AD what his response was to the new allegations. Since there aren't any, his reply of not having heard about the new allegations would be appropriate.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Kris said...

Although I realize there isn't anything else to talk about but aren't we kind of giving the story legs? Maybe if the kid's dad would have come out and said his son deserved what he got this would have died after it happened. What I can't figure out why f bomb and his bammer cronies seem to think this is disaster for Auburn. Eric is a good player but losing him is not the end of the world. It is reasonable to assume that the other two players have already been kicked off the team...and guess what? We made it without them. Does this incident mean Chiz is a poor disciplinarian or poor judge of character? Chiz Senior was a marine that survived Iwo Jima...next question. Does this incident mean the NCAA is gonna pitch a tent at Toomer's? Who cares? We have already self imposed scholly limits without being investigated. The bottom line is there is nothing f bomb nor UAT nor the NCAA can do to take away my degree nor the pride with which it is displayed. They certainly can do nothing to weaken our bond as alumni or diminish our experience while there. We shouldn't give their efforts merit by fretting over them.

12:25 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Kris...good point.

And I'm not worried about what implications this case brings. It's only a finebaum caused distraction. It's not anything that will cause grevious harm to Auburn (and I said this last night). It's an isolated incident, unlike a certain campus wide textbook scandal...

I have all the confidence in the world that Chiz does and will do the right thing. That's part of the reason we were down to 74 scholarships, right? B/c Chiz doesn't mess around. I'm just saying Eric Smith might have been kind of a d'bag for doing what he did, but I'm sure he's learned and moved on.

FSJ - as sort of a follow-on to your autographed picture story; years ago ('83 or '84) Bailey was in the Gump representing some drug dealer who'd been busted after landing his private plane at the Gump airport. I was working part-time for a law firm who had their offices next door to the firm Bailey was using. He came out of the Capital City Club at the same time I came out of our front door so we almost literally ran into each other. I knew he was working in the building so I wasn't surprised. Since I figured I'd never have another opportunity, I introduced myself to him (in much the same way I did with Dr. J this summer). He likely promptly forgot about this meeting but I didn't just so I could share it with you now.

Just one of my many brushes with fame or perhaps infamy.

And the US gives up a goal one minute into the second half.

Some matador defense there.

US gives up another goal, now trailing 2-1.

Yep, that's two goals in five minutes.

Group stage exit in South Africa, here we come...playing like this anyway...and without arguably our four or five best players.

For what it is worth, I am a retired Police Officer. Some things I have noticed from this case:

Anyone can file a lawsuit. And they usually do it for one of three reasons, publicity, money or both.

The Officers originally arrested Eric Smith for Disorderly Conduct, a misdemeanor. Which indicates that at that time, the arresting Officer did not see anything defined as even a low grade Assault (Assault 3rd). Once it became known the "victim" had received physical injury, the Arresting Officer upgraded the charge to Assault 3rd, STILL a misdemeanor (Google the Alabama Criminal Code and you can compare Assault 1st, 2nd, or 3rd with Harassment, which is the actual next step below Assault 3rd and what Eric Smith attempted to charge the "victim" with). While at it, look at the Alabama definition of Disorderly Conduct (the orginal charge against Eric Smith). By the descriptions and accounts in the lawsuit, Smith should have been charged with Assault 1st Degree (a class A felony and one that could give an offender a long time in prison). Keep in mind this is typical lawyering up the case to help their client. The criminal case has been adjudicated. There was obviously not enough physical injury to charge Eric Smith with a felony OR give him any jail time, allowing his youthful offender plea.

In my experience there are three sides to a story. The stories of the two parties and the truth, which is somewhere in the middle. Attorney's do nothing unless there is money of some sort involved in it for them (No Offense to any of you out there). Over time this will become obvious. This case should have been over the day Eric Smith left the court room.

When they introduce the starting lineup at Miami, does Fred G announce "I'm gonna give you 5 of these!"?

just heard I'm in EDSBS's food montage from Athens when we were eating at Five Star. I cannot confirm this, but I love finding out I'm in random places on the internets.

Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

michael, I heard that on the radio this morning. Awesome...

Also good listening is Ricky Williams's conversation with the Dolphins beat guys. Apparently, he hasn't been talking to the media, so they told the front office they'd turn him in and he'd be fined 25k. The way he handled the ensuing interview was hillarious. His answers were short and boring, and he whistled while they asked questions. Apparently, they have never had to deal with access issues like Jay G does, because they were infuriated by it. Ricky Rules.

I want to throw this article in the fray. It really upset me as a man in a fraternity at Auburn.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703683804574532052658242422.html?mod

This is what I love about this article. Around 1/3 of the student population at Auburn is greek. Of that, only a small percentage (I am not going to give an exact estimate) are rude, crude, sexist, and completely drunk at games. I am upset that a lot of the "facts" presented in the article aren't really true. How can you take the worst behavior of a small percentage of the population and present it as the prevalent culture of the University? If you did that will anything, it would be pretty embarrassing. I would love to write an article of the worst behavior of people in New York City and then generalize it to everyone in the city. I am so glad that when I visit in the North East and say that I graduated from Auburn, this is the preconception they will have: I am drunk, stupid, and sexist because of a poorly researched article in one of the most trusted names in newspapers. Thanks WSJ.

Blogger michael said...

This is another good "horrible drunk fans at Auburn" story

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4657099

I haven't watched it all, but I think it is pretty hilarious. It is obviously ESPN's C-team doing the reporting here. They are reporting on drunk fans with the somberness of a rape story on Dateline.

Drunk fans at AUBURN?!?

Have they never heard of a little school called Louisiana State University?

I guess it wouldn't be "news" if they reported it there though, huh?

Thats funny they received 25 text messages with 88,000 people at the stadium hahahha

Blogger WDCWE said...

I know, right? Imagine that in a group of of almost 90,000 people, there might be a few incidents at a FOOTBALL game. I would love for everyone to be as responsible as most fans are. But to expect it? Crazy.

5:14 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I read that story about Auburn's stadium-text situation.

I thought it was funny ... for the same reasons you all did.

I've been there, though. ESPN commits to the story, gets here, realizes there isn't much of a story ... but the honchos at ESPN still want a story. So you write it. And it ends up like this.

So it goes.

Another hint from Jay G about his impending departure to ESPN, but his lawyer still cannot confirm or deny it.

JayGT - I appreciate you taking the trouble of uploading all that lawsuit crap. Please forgive me for my lack of interest. I suspect it reads something like this:
