Goofy, pigeon-toed egomaniac, Mike Hernandez III, a resident of Colleyville, TX, an uppity bedroom community 'tween Dallas and Fort Worth, has instructed Arlington lawyer Frank Hill to proceed with his defamation lawsuit against local blogger, Jerry McHale.
Today, McHale, not exactly shaking in his boots, published Hill's legally phrased cover letter in his blog, THE MCHALE REPORT. The biggest disappointment for local bloggers, political advocates and college students is that Hernandez III, who purports to have an affinity for Brownsville, has instructed Attorney Hill to file the case in Tarrant County, the county where Colleyville is located and Fort Worth is the county seat.
Local bloggers especially relished the opportunity of personally witnessing Hernandez vs. McHale being aired locally, making copious notes as they learned Hernandez modus operandi in local politics, witnessed the courtroom manner of Attorney Frank Hill and tried to stop staring at the plaintiff's shoes pointing toward each other.
The Armando Villalobos trial testimony revealed the dirtiness of a huge mix of Brownsville players: Eddie Lucio, Jesse Mata, Mark Rosenthal, Leonel Alejandro, Abel Limas, Eddie Trevino, Ernesto Gamez, Gilberto Hinojosa, Ray Marchan, Jim Solis, Jose Valle and Jaime Munivez. Many of those are still not in jail or have yet committed suicide, but those paying attention during the trial know what they're about.
Another recently threatened defamation suit, Mark Sossi vs. Juan Montoya, was "settled," depriving the locals of the details of Sossi's shenanigans, work ethic and toxic relationship with city employee Amanda McDonald. We do not know the details of the settlement, but Montoya, mum on the lawsuit, showed up at the Sportsman Inn with a Cheshire cat, ear-to-ear grin, telling the bartender to change my order from a dollar draft to a Bud Light and telling me to put my money back in my pocket.
Of course, Mike Hernandez III is within his rights to choose the venue in which his civil suit is aired. The Tarrant County Courthouse will be more convenient for him, negotiating the heavily trafficked north 820 loop into Fort Worth. Had he chosen to have his attorney file the case in Cameron County, Hernandez would have faced the long drive from his South Padre Island bungalow into the country's most impoverished city, Brownsville. For car salesman Hernandez III, that would have constituted cruel and unusual punishment, a serious inconvenience and cost him a few high-end leases, but it would have been an awesome opportunity for local students and bloggers to learn about the free speech guaranteed by the U.S. constitution.
