Our federal court case, filed as plaintiffs using the diversity rule, was also STRANGE. The original judge, Willis B. Hunt, recused himself immediately but actually came back to be named on the Order to Dismiss along with Judge Timothy Batten. The Order actually said that ANYTHING The Cochran Firm did to protect Shelby County Jail from the Neal's lawsuit was "immaterial." (This likely means that justice for black families seeking wrongful death damages after police violence is "immaterial" to federal court.) I worked very hard for Troy Davis, recognizing that Georgia courts are prejudice against African Americans.
Despite two court cases, federal subpoenas and Freedom of Information Act requests to Memphis Shelby County Jail and Government and to the United States Department of Justice, my family is still deprived of knowing the circumstances of Larry Neal's secret incarceration and murder in Shelby County Jail. I suppose he may have been used for waterboarding training, which is reportedly how Gregory Stampley was killed in Stillwater Prison in Minnesota in 1994.
"Hutchins sued both the estate and its lawyers, claiming that one of the lawyers for the estate, Hezekiah Sistrunk of Cochran, Cherry, Givens, Smith & Sistrunk ("the Cochran Firm") promised to "take care" of Hutchins after the case settled. Hutchins subsequently dropped his claims against the estate."
This article lists all of the lawsuits against The Cochran Firm and allegations of fraud, malpractice, and racism that I know about presently. It was updated this week with no. 21 - Judy Nashville, who was stood up by her lawyer on the court date when The Cochran Firm was to represent her case involving her teenage son's wrongful death by St. Louis police (Nashville vs. St. Louis). Stanley Parker was killed in September 2002, and the court date was in 2006, after Johnnie Cochran's death. Her Cochran Firm lawyer was a no-show.
The Cochran Firm boasts that it has been mentioned in the below law journals and given awards by the following concerns that help the frauds keep its false image of being an ethical law firm while it continues to defraud African Americans from coast to coast and pervert justice in courtrooms throughout the USA. NONE of the below enterprises will report the Cochran Firm's many frauds against its own former lawyers and clients. If "white liberals" and lapdog blacks did that, the public would be warned, and the CoIntelPro game would be over. The Cochran Firm would lose its ability to save police departments and major corporations from paying righteous damages to settle lawsuits by people of color.
