You may want to stop reading right now if you plan to vote for Jared Woodfill for Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. If you’re willing to stay with me on this and agree Mr. Woodfill—IMHO—should be asked some very tough questions, be asked if he should continue to represent David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for their involvement in the Planned Parenthood investigation,—-
and be asked if misrepresenting facts to a Family Law Court qualify him to be elected Chairman—then you might wish to read some documents filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.
It seems Mr. Woodfill cannot provide an explanation of funds discrepancies between ledgers & bank statements of the Woodfill Law Firm—(see pages 40 & 45 for highlighted text): Castillio Woodfill Priority 4
The Court finds that there are at least $140,449.36 of funds for which WLF has failed to provide an explanation or has been overpaid. The $140,449.36 is comprised of the following amounts:
- $25,000.00 (amount required to be paid to Stewart & Hurst per Rule 11 Agreement, but was not paid)
- $18,562.50 (amount overpaid due to errors set forth in June 30, 2014 invoice)
- $64,808.33 (difference between IOLTA Bank Statement and IOLTA Ledger as of September 24, 2014)
- $32,078.53 (difference between IOLTA Bank Statement and IOLTA Ledger as of September 30, 2014)
It seems Mr. Woodfill and an employee of the Woodlfill Law Firm acting on his behalf misrepresented to the Family Law Court that the Woodfill Law Firm was owed attorney’s fees when in fact it was not.
Thus, Woodfill, on behalf of WLF, misrepresented to the Family Law Court that WLF was due a higher amount of attorneys’ fees than what was actually owed. The misrepresentation was material: he overstated the past due amount by $46,701.47.
It seems a Settlement Agreement requires Jared Woodfill to pay a bankruptcy trustee the sum of $135,000 pursuant to the following payment schedule: (see pages 4 & 5) Woodfill settlment agreement
- $25,000.00 within 15 days after the Settlement Agreement is Approved by the Bankruptcy Court
- $20,000.00 on or before March 31,2016
- $20,000.00 on or before June 30,2016
- $20,000.00 on or before September 30,2016
- $20,000.00 on or before December 31,2016
- $15,000.00 on or before March 31,2017
- $15,00.00 on or before June 30,20l7
And it seems the settlement agreement does NOT release Woodfill from any malpractice claim his client (or perhaps soon to be former client) may have against him.
When will this be in front of a grand jury?
Do David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt have any idea they’re entrusting themselves, their families and their future to an attorney found by a judge to have provided material misrepresentations to a Court and could be sued for malpractice by a former client?
