Leonard Cohen's Certifiably Insane Lawyers Continue With Their Games, Harassment, Etc.

Michelle Rice,

You are certifiable.  I remain uninterested in any of your cases.  I am well aware that you lie and use dirty, shady tactics.  I have advised you, Kory, and Gianelli to cease and desist.  This is one of the more lame cover your ass operations I have ever seen.  You encouraged this criminal stalker to harass me further.  He's been targeting me, my sons, sister, friends, and others for over six straight years - since hearing from you.  Did you have an interest in his Phil Spector blog?  Maybe you did since Cohen and Cooley were publicly aligned during my utterly deranged trial where the City Attorney lied about federal tax matters.

Cease and desist.

Kelley Lynch

Mr.  Gianelli: 

I attach the parties listing from Atlantic Records, et al. v. Project PlaylistInc. that I downloaded from PACER from
the Southern District of New York.  As you will see in the attached, 
I was indeed a counsel of record for my client, Project Playlist, Inc., after Wilson Sonsini withdrew in 2009.   
Your own printout in your email below shows Mr. Kramer as "terminated"  in 2009.  

Given your purportedly exceptional legal skills, I can only assume that your misstatement as to my representation 
of Project Playlist in the SDNY litigation is intentionally and knowingly false and as such is defamatory per se.  

Your continued attempts to publicly defame and discredit me, subsequent to my telling you in no uncertain terms as 
recently as July of this year to cease your harassment of me and this law office should cease and desist immediately.  

Whatever continuing dispute you may have with Ms. Lynch is between the two of you and should 
not involve me as Mr. Cohen's counsel.   As a lawyer of significant skills (according to you), I find 
it interesting that you cannot resolve your own legal disputes with Ms. Lynch without attempting to involve our office and 
continually attempting to inappropriately intervene and insert yourself into Mr. Cohen's legal matters.  

Accordingly, please cease copying me in on emails that you send to 
Ms. Lynch, who I observe has also repeatedly requested that you cease your inappropriate interference and 
has even written me and my law partner, Robert Kory, to request that you do so.   

According to the California State Bar website you remain an "active" member of the State Bar irregardless of your 
publicly holding yourself out as "retired."   I submit that your ad hominem attacks 
on me, Ms. Lynch, and your recently writing that it is "fun" to harass others when they have repeatedly requested that you cease 
such conduct is, as my partner observed below, quite troubling and disturbing.

Wilson Sonsini withdrew because they feared a huge loss.  Michelle stepped in under protest, assembled a brilliant team of three firms, fought back in major technical discovry, terabytes of data, developed a computer model that caused counsel to record companies to fear loss, and to settle on extremely favorable terms . She accomplished all this knowing that her case was fundamentally flawed.  Her clients were leading entrepreneurs with net worth on the billions and could have been forced to pay massive damages.  Kramer called me after the settlement and congratulated us on Michelle's brilliant work.  The real tragedy is that the Playlist technical team and entrepreneurs failed to follow Michelle's analysis of DMCA compliance.  Had they done so, Michelle could have won the litigation.  Feel free to doubt my words, but I assure you it is the truth.

You are way off base about Michelle. I urge you to cease your baseless and often childish criticism of her.  I also ask again that you stop emailing Lynch and provoking her.  This should not be viewed as sport.  Your emails suggesting that provoking Lynch is "fun" are quite troubling.

PS: I looked up Atlantic Records, et al. v. Project Playlist. The LEAD COUNSEL for the defense was NOT Michelle Rice. (It was David Kramer at Wilson, Sonsini in Palo Alto.)  And no, Michelle, no one would trust a lawyer who has never tried a single case, cross-examined a witness at trial, given an opening statement or a closing argument – let alone one who doesn’t even know how to mark a document, present it to a witness, and then move it into evidence -  to try ANY case as “lead counsel” for the defense  – least of all in a “$900 million dollar case” for a startup company represented by Wilson, Sonsini.

Look up Atlantic Records, et al. v. Project Playlist.  SDNY. Denny Chin.  I lead $900 million copyright infringement litigation
for a start-up client.  Won settlement.  Backed off major labels. Very contested claims.  Got a PACER Account ? Look it up.  Dare you.  Come back to me 
when you've seen that kind of high stakes litigation - you've never even been close.  Little state court boy. 

I tell you what's pathetic.  The dearth of your digital footprint.  Your long 37 year illustrious career. -nothing.  Zilch. Nada. 

All I get when I Google you is "jihad gianelli" "NAMBLA" AND "Child Molester", LOL. 

Guess you weren't so successful in getting all that taken down, eh ?  Big litigator and all ?

‎You have now sent me TWO MORE emails that I deleted unread. But no doubt full of toxic epithets. 
I will (hopefully) leave you with this life hint: When you sport a sunken mouth and a forehead big enough to be seen from outer space (not to mention THAT hair and body) a nasty personality leaves you with few social (not to mention relationship) options. 
And this protip: You cannot sustain a practice with one client, let alone an elderly client. And the largest source of small firm or solo (when Robert retires) referrals is other lawyers. 
And. I think you can forget the neighbors at this point - after calling them "stupid" and the internet, opposing a variance for a 1,500 sq. ft. garage edition - not to mention how you treated Steve Head face-to-face.
The law is a small community, Michelle. Word gets around.
