Bonus I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


In an apparent rush to prove that they have failed to do their due diligence for their client’s case, the lawyers representing Brennan Gilmore in the Gilmore v. Jones, et al. LOLsuit filed this—

They’ve alleged that Lee Stranahan has a Texas Driver’s License and state in footnote 1 that he hasn’t denied having one. Lee is legally blind. He doesn’t have a driver’s license.

Almost every lawyer that I’ve discussed this case with views the behavior of Gilmore’s lawyers, especially their lack of due diligence, as sanctionable.

  1. …and the judge walked in sat down with a seeing eye dog, and he
    Sat down, we sat down. Obie looked at the seeing eye dog, and then at the
    Twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy pictures with circles and arrows
    And a paragraph on the back of each one, and looked at the seeing eye dog
    And then at twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy pictures with circles
    And arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one and began to cry
    Cause Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case of American
    Blind justice, and there wasn’t nothing he could do about it, and the
    Judge wasn’t going to look at the twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs…

  2. Let’s say lee has a Texas dL, so what, I have a tn dL but I live in Texas. Your legal residence is where you say it is and you are actually there. If lee doesn’t own or rent property in Texas, but owns or rents or has a postal address in va, that’s all there is to that

  3. It was hubris to deny Lee Stranahan lives in Virginia based on a driver’s license when their own filing placed him in Virginia as an employee of an employer operating in the DC metro area.

    Where you work today, or, where you voted 17 months ago, which is more dispositive?

  4. Wondering if he might actually have an ID card from the TX DPS which the lawyers just mistook for a driver’s license. I know that most states have a time limit on getting a new license after moving there, so not getting one might be an indication that the person isn’t a permanent resident, but I don’t know if the same rules apply to IDs.

    • It’s going to be up to,case law imo, but people do,move and state ids are rarely asked for when getting another states Id. (Whole other story for DLs) so It would not be surprising to have both. But having an apt in va is highly persuasive that he’s a Virginia resident, employment in a non bordering state (va shares no border w Texas) is also super highly persuasive and he has both.

      Residency can be complicated, remember Romney lost his senate race to ted after having a decisive early lead because, Romney worked in Ma, lived in New Hamph, and declared his official residence as Utah to avoid higher state taxes.
