A blog post on it: https://abovethelaw.com/2019/05/well-th ... -possible/

I thought Hood was a graduate of the streets, not Harvard Law. I remember meeting up with him and howard after a Swamp NYC outing -- I may have uttered 2 words the entire time.

So I wasn't sure if Hood would have wanted this shit on blast or kept quiet (should have known better), but he just reached out and asked me to forward this here, since I have no social media presence. He also said to post on PB sites and Middlebury College sites. Feels like I am missing an old inside joke there. Anyways, here is what he wrote:
Hood wrote:So, I am in a fight for my reputation with some depraved corporate evildoers. I am trying to shine as much light on the situation as possible. They can spread false allegations against me, nothing I can do. But these people have done unspeakable wrongs and their conduct needs to be exposed under an extremely bright lights.

I would be forever grateful if you post the link below to any and all social media where you are comfortable doing so. You can add whatever prose/commentary you like or just post with no commentary. If you have friends who would join in and help a righteous cause, please have them do so as well. I want as much circulation as possible.

I also had no solid idea really as to what Hoodrow was saying in those messages, though I did get the basic jist of it and this helps to illuminate everything.

Unlike that time when Rick Baller ran a 40 yard dash in somewhere between 4.35 and 5 seconds. To be fair to Rick, he was basically a child then and he's a normal dude in all of my interactions with him after he grew up.

Just so you know, I saw in one of the articles about the case that one of the attorneys he named as a defendant is a Trustee at Middlebury. So it’s not an inside joke or anything.

Asking for comments or likes on this article: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/activity ... 40449-oGeN

Or anyone with a blog or knows a journalist to pitch this story to, Hood wants to speak out everywhere he can. Now I ask you, does that sound like the actions of a man who is guilty of what the law firm alleged? Hell, no!

Bronto, I think this story is perfect for From the Marbles! Think about it, you could get an exclusive interview!

I had absolutely NO IDEA Hood was a lawyer, let alone Harvard educated.

I can't read any of the legaldesire links... Have no fucking clue what and why my company blocks certain sites.

Without the vast majority of the facts, it sure seems like a play on the #MeToo moment to maximize negative reaction. I obviously don't know the guy, but those that pay any amount of attention know I have some rules when it comes to giving these types of allegations any merit.

This sounds like a shitty episode of Suits.
