Why Don't We Get Sued? Because...

Why aren't we being sued? Because...from Krubinski vs Schmutzer-"truth is a complete defense against liability for defamation, regardless of bad faith or malicious purpose."

A Reference I Wouldn't Touch With a Ten Foot Pole-Local Celebrity Attorney Jim Duenow Provides A Declaration for DeckTech

“How about if I punch him?”
Local attorney Jim Duenow spoke those words as he walked out of a San Luis Obispo courtroom March 6. 
Deck tech's Application for a Stay on Their Probationary
License Was Denied by The Judge

DeckTech Inc's Attorney, John Hodges, has actually thrown shit on the wall to see what sticks. Shit as in local "celebrity attorney" Jim Duenow, who has thrown his "good name" into the hat of DeckTech's  references. 
Duenow we will all remember infamously offered to punch opposition attorney James Wagstaffe in a SLAPP hearing last year for Cal Coast News during a slander/libel trial he represented them in. 
Duenow's license to practice was apparently suspended while he was representing Cal Coast News. In a civil matter. The CAS State Bar lists his license as being "Not Eligible to Practice Law" as of 7/1/16 and not until 3/8/17 did his license become active again. 
So now this fine upstanding individual has said "DeckTech has really saved us." in a declaration he submitted for Hodges to file with an appeal seeking to hold up Decktech's license being placed on a probationary status. 
As of now the appeal was denied and we are waiting for a conference scheduled for several months from now. 
But seriously, Jim Duenow? That's a stretch.
