Closed civil case. Already found newsworthy. No post-judgment proceedings other than collections.

What says the wisdom of JDU?

Not jdu wisdom but unless you are a plaintiff's lawlyer blowing bad guys, I don't see any benefit.

Great way to get your name out there
Also a great way to get into trouble with the bar

Get permission from the client in
Writing and watch what you say

This is good advice but really as long as you don’t say anything you haven’t said in a pleading somewhere, you should be fine.

The big thing is to not go against client wishes. If the client oks it, knock yourself out.

The one time I agreed to do this it got printed that I said the judge retaliated against my client. Didn't get in trouble for it though.

Never talk to press. If you must give a canned official statement ... two sentences max. Stay far away

Talk to the press then talk a lot about crazy right wing plumber style fantasies. Guaranteed that you’ll be in the press all the time after that and probably get a talking head job on Fox.
