A few weeks ago we published a letter from Baton Rouge Attorney Chris Alexander bringing into question why 15th Judicial public defender G. Paul Marx was utilizing their website, which is tax payer funded to publicize his opinion regarding the case dubbed Real Cops Vs. Craft. We asked the question, is u stupid, is u really that stupid?
The opinion piece by Marx has since been removed from their website (LOL) as well as any cached versions from Google (techie), however Marx continues to rant and rave as if he has a dog in the fight. How foolish!
We reached out to Mr. Marxs for comment via email but as of publication have yet to recieve a response.
Yesterday we read in The Advertiser that Mr. Marx responded to the paper’s request for comment by saying:
A June 2012 post of my opinion on the suit is just that. The legal rule says “arguments of counsel are not evidence.” Unproven claims aren’t either.
This is a very legitimate concern for my agency. Things associated with credibility and veracity of investigators as potential witnesses can make a difference to my clients. The court will test the claims factually at some point. But remember, state court has tossed them and my view is what remains in Federal Court will meet the same fate.
Once there’s final judgment I’ll be glad to comment further. My view could be summed up as the claims being “all hat and no cattle” back in June and I’ll change my mind when a court rules otherwise.
G. Paul Marx
We’d suggest Mr. Marx go back to cleaning up the problems in his office and mind his beezwaxs!
