  •  I wouldn't underestimate Stein. (1+ / 0-)

    He's a highly educated and experienced federal trial attorney and professor. He could make total bullshit smell minty fresh. Go in ready for a serious battle.

    Its interesting that skimming through his Wiki he appears to have little connection to the real world:

    Stein was born in Washington, D.C., the son of Mildred (née Fishman), a homemaker, and Herbert Stein, a writer, economist, and presidential adviser.[2] He is Jewish and grew up in the Woodside Forest neighborhood of Silver Spring, Maryland. Stein graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in 1961 along with classmate journalist Carl Bernstein; actress Goldie Hawn (class of 1963) was two years behind. Actor Sylvester Stallone was a schoolmate at Montgomery Hills Junior High School.[3] He went on to major in economics at Columbia University's Columbia College, where he was a member of Alpha Delta Phi society and the Philolexian Society. After graduating with honors from Columbia in 1966, Stein went to Yale Law School, graduating in June 1970. He says that he did not have the highest grades in his class at Yale, but was voted valedictorian by the students because he was most popular.[4]

    Humph, it appears that he's a born one percenter of plutocrat, speculator and Hollywood extraction - a real triple-treat. He hasn't been in touch with the real world in decades, if ever.
