Seattle lawyer finds ethics complaint again Port Angeles city attorney to be without merit
Personally, I think a much better headline would shrink that thought down even more:
Seattle lawyer finds Port Angeles city attorney to be without merit
Now that would really be A GAIN for the City, eh?
Anyway, is anyone really surprised that the lawyer hired by the City has found Bill Bloor to be all that and more? After all, that's the result the City would clearly desire, and it required no heavy lifting for this Seattle attorney, Peter Eglick, to find his way to that very conclusion. Case dismissed!
Not only is your case dismissed, Bill, but you also won a FREE hat!
Only...Except...But...The fact still remains that Bill Bloor is, to be kind, a woeful and ill-informed attorney. Even if you agree that he didn't do anything "ethically" wrong in this case, it would still be hard for you to make the case that he's been an effective representative of the legal profession for the City. He's simply been wrong - often glaringly, painfully wrong - too many times.
And, of course, he is also wildly overcompensated for his so-called services.
So, this is what victory looks like for the entrenched forces of discord and greed in City Hall. You get to keep on keeping on with your lame, lame, lame attorney. Somehow I don't think anyone outside of City Hall is going to think that's great news.
