Neuberger Out of AG Race

Filed in National by on February 28, 2018

Attorney Tom Neuberger told WDEL he will withdraw his candidacy for the Republican nomination for attorney general so he can instead represent injured firefighter Brad Speakman in a lawsuit against the City of Wilmington.

Frankly, the lawsuit sounds like total bullshit to me: From the WDEL account: Neuberger said the city must answer for “numerous civilian and now three firefighter deaths,” he said were caused by a 16-year-long “rolling bypass” standard of procedure which deliberately leaves certain engine companies out of service for a period of time.

In essence, then, the contention of Mr. Neuberger is that once a city opens a fire station, it can never be closed temporarily. The absurdity of this position is obvious on its face, and the beer is on me if this case isn’t tossed by the first competent judge it reaches.

Gives Neuberger a plausible reason to shitcan his “race” for AG, though.

    So this negligence went on for 16 years without loss of life. Is that supposed to prove that it was deadly? Because, y’know — bullshit, Tom.

    He also bragged about getting an $8 million settlement in the prison lawsuit. He did not, it should be noted, get that in court. He strong-armed a settlement, partly by constantly trying his case in the media.

    Not saying these aren’t legitimate tactics, but when you’re ripping off the taxpayers, let’s be honest about it, eh Tom?

    Everybody loves austerity right up until you have a chance to pocket a big settlement check.

  3. Is there an R still running for AG?

  4. jason330 says:

    I don’t think so.

  5. puck says:

    Plenty of us count Park City Kathy as an R.

    … she’s running for auditor, pick.

    Neuberger is as vile as humanely possible and yet I know several lawyers on both sides of the aisle who applaud him as the ultimate lawyer. Lacking any ethics, decency, integrity, or honesty he certainly fill the role of Lawyer in many minds.
