Charleston Gazette police reporter Gary Harki brings us this amazing story of the bat-wielding Charleston, West Virginia attorney, Joshua Robinson. Robinson, 35, who has a record of violent attacks on others both in Kentucky where he formerly practiced law and in West Virginia where until recently he represented David Lee Gump, II--in what appears to be a guardianship matter.
We talk about all kinds of bad lawyers, cops, sheriffs, jurors, and judges, but Joshua Robinson has created a whole new category--bat wielding maniacs with law licenses. Links to Gary Haarki's Charleston Gazette stories follow. The Charleston Gazette is also the one-stop web source for coverage of the Caperton/Massey Coal stories we discussed here at Bad Lawyer, and which was memorably the subject of an important US Supreme Court case.
