5030: Nutcase Closed.


Adweek.com scooped the latest droppings from the Steve Biegel versus Dentsu fiasco. It’s a complex, detailed story with a simple message: Biegel’s legal days are numbered—the clock is ticking like a quickie session with a Prague prostitute.

You don’t need Denny Crane to explain what’s happening here. Biegel’s problem is his arguments and charges are almost purely emotional and subjective. In contrast, Dentsu is building a tight defense, citing facts, legal precedents and hard-to-dispute truths.

Biegel spouts “Sharapova crotch shot” and “slavishly deferential.” Dentsu volleys with “Faragher-Ellerth” and “Policies & Procedures Employee Manual.” Yes, Biegel’s blustering might make for a more entertaining primetime courtroom drama. But real cases involve those nettlesome things called laws.

Right now, Biegel’s as lawless as Xena’s Lucy.

The court just today denied Dentsu's motion to dismiss Biegel's claims. Dentsu's motion was denied in its entirety. Dentsu has lost its motion, completely and totally. Biegel's claims are going forward, and the case will likely take many months to resolve. You know nothing about the law, and nothing about this case. Your prediction about Biegel's hours being numbered has turned out to be completely, spectacularly wrong. Why don't you try to learn about this before you spout off about it again? Repeat: your prediction was dead wrong. Dentsu lost the motion today, in its entirety. And you look like a complete fool.

Biggest thing that hurts Biegel here: if things were so bad, why stay in the situation and allow it to continue.

oh, anonymous, it won't be the first time.

Also, denying the motion to dismiss Biegel's claims does not translate to a victory for Biegel. We'll see how those claims hold up—provided Biegel can afford to spend "many months" for the case to continue.

Highjive, I beg to differ. The fact that our justice system just confirmed that there is a situation here that is substantial enough to pursue in a courtroom IS, in fact, a victory. It gives me great pleasure to know that the person behind the bench, who has rightfully earned her title as an advocate for Americans, has the intellect to discern whether or not a person has been victimized, and sees Biegel as such, unlike you who obviously know NOTHING about the term "justice". Face it, highjive, today was victorious for Biegel. Make yourself a cup of coffee and breathe in deep, buddy!
