The reason that I know this is that Prof. Alan Dershowitz disappointed me on a matter involving my First Amendment rights in Tennessee worker rights adjudications.
Some fifteen years ago, Brian and I saw Alan Dershowitz speak at the Jacksonville, Florida Jewish Center.
I spoke with Prof. Dershowitz afterwards.
I told Prof. Dershowitz about my Tennessee disbarment case First Amendment defense.
Prof Alan Dershowitz said he would read the file on it and get back with me. He took with him the one-inch file I handed him.
I never heard from Prof. Alan Dershowitz again. I left a couple reminder messages with his secretary at Harvard University Law School. Zilch. Nada. What a piker.
Prof Alan Dershowitz was one of my idols in law school. But in my forties, I learnt that my idol had feet of clay.
Prof. Alan Dershowitz's "defense" record is of support for rich fatcats like ClAUS VON BULOW, ORRENTHAL JAMES SIMPSON, LEONNA HELMSLEY, MIKE TYSON, Rev. JIM BAKKER, MICHAEL MILLIKEN and the late JEFFREY EPSTEIN.
Prof. Alan Dershowitz is less interested in citizens who stand up against official oppression.
Does Prof. Alan Dershowitz have delusions of adequacy?
You tell me.
