  1. what a joke says:

    “The score is 25-0 for the prosecution. That’s how many years Raj will be in jail to how many years he won’t. We’ll see you at Rikers Island”

    MBA > CFA > John Dowd’s JD. Someone should’ve explained to him the scoring rules.

    The way this is going to work is the following; the fat man will appeal, will do 5-10 and on good behavior come out in 2, retire to Sri Lanka, gather the cash he has stashed away and start his own boutique in Delhi. This is the NKI in your face to U.S. justice.

  6. Guest says:

    They’re just building the case that the defense was not compos mentis when defending the client. Trying to hook the courts on a technicality…

  7. Guest says:

    He better hope that Raj’s assets are being controlled by the court rather than Raj. Otherwise I can see that invoice payment being stuck in the mail for quite a while.

  8. J. Dowd says:

    No skin of my back being 9 for 23. It’s not like I’m the one wearing the orange jumpsuit. Besides, think of all the additional Benjamins I am going to get to put in my pocket as we appeal.

  9. guest says:

    Randolph Dowd: The good part, William, is that, no matter whether our clients go to jail or stay out of jail, Dowd & Dowd get the billable hours.

    John Dowd:
    Well? What do you think, Valentine?

    “Not Convicted” =/= “Not Guilty”, asshole.

    “The score is 23 to 14 for the defense. We’ll see you in the Second Circuit.”

    Perhaps the lamest attempt to put a shine on a sneaker or lipstick on a pig that has ever been tried. I’m sure a score of ”23 to 14 for the defense” will be a great comfort to the client when he gets pounded up the ass in the joint.

  15. D. Trump says:

    John Dowd is the smartest lawyer in the world. He is a graduate of my university. I am very very proud of him and myself.

  16. Guest says:

    I think the defense did the right thing going for 2 after that last touch-down, pushed it to a two score trial.

  17. James Harden's Beard says:

    In advance of his prison stay, Mr. Rajaratnam has hired a team of plastic surgeons to restructure his appearance to lessen the likelihood of sexual assault. The doctors intend to do nothing but will claim a 999-1 victory in the off chance that a far-sighted prisoner confuses Raj for Starr Jones and savagely rapes him.
