Kathy Griffin Fights Her Lawyer!

Written by Joe Scudder

Having failed to damage Trump, now Kathy Griffin fights new enemies as Hollywood turns against itself.

It is hard to figure out why Kathy Griffin fights against here own lawyer, Lisa Bloom. She’s got no one else to attack. Every time she tries to blame someone else for her idiocy, she only looks worse. So now she’s blaming her former “friend.”

Lisa Bloom deserves everything she gets for helping Griffin. And her response may have crossed a line that will get her in real trouble.

Law Newz posted, “Sure Looks Like Lisa Bloom Broke Attorney-Client Privilege to Trash Kathy Griffin.

So, do Lisa Bloom’s tweeted comments rise to the level of revealing Kathy Griffin’s confidential information? Bloom’s potentially unethical comments are as follows, “Her entire team (entertainment lawyer, criminal lawyer, and several others) approved in advance the statements she and I were going to make. Yet Kathy then during the press conference spontaneously chose to put aside the notes we had worked so hard on together. She said on camera ‘my notes are by the wayside and it’s all off the cuff’ and then ad libbed. I was sorry she made that choice…”

To start off, the part where Bloom relays what Griffin said on camera is clearly not a candidate for a rules violation here, because it was simply a rehashing of what happened in full public view, so we can discount that immediately. Everything that’s left in Bloom’s statement, however, could put her in a bit of an ethical quagmire.

First, Bloom notes that Griffin, herself and at least three others (and probably more) worked together on a project as part of Kathy’s team. That’s one discrete piece of information–group work–which Bloom revealed. Second, Bloom notes that other attorneys helped with said project. That’s another discrete piece of information–legal group work–which Bloom revealed. Third, Bloom notes that the comments which derived from said project were approved by other attorneys, which is yet another discrete piece of information–legal imprimatur–which Bloom revealed.
