Professor's Bombshell charge: Elizabeth Warren Practices Law in Massachusetts Without a License, - The Blaze and Legal Insurrection - It looks like Massachusetts senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s credibility may take a turn for the worse, and this time it has nothing to do with her claims of Native American heritage. According to Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Securities Law Clinic at Cornell Law School William A. Jacobson, Warren practiced law in Massachusetts without a license. Here’s how he explains it. During their senate debate last week, Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) “hammered” Warren over her private legal representation of The Travelers Insurance Company in an asbestos-related case. “Warren attempted to deny her role, and referred to a Boston Globe article, but the Globe article supports Brown’s account,” Jacobson reports. “The Globe article indicated the representation was for a period of three years and Warren was paid $212,000. The case resulted in a Supreme Court victory for Travelers arising out of a bankruptcy case in New York,” he adds. But that’s not all. “Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts,” Jacobson notes. “Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts,” he adds.  Read more..........
