Bernard Kerik : You've Been Served; Joe Tacopina v. Kerik et al U.S. District Courts NY Southern 1:14-cv-00749-LTS

In recent weeks, the local NYC media has been over sharing the hackneyed allegedly "gratis" speech from Bernard Kerik regarding prison reform. This has been the red herring diverting attention from the real story which is the $5 million defamation lawsuit recently filed Joe Tacopina v. Kerik et al U.S. District Courts NY Southern 1:14-cv-00749-LTS. At particular times, the truth is stranger than fiction and ever so more than a drive-by media soundbite on local NYC news program! Lately, Bernie has assured everyone he is NOT being paid for this sudden passion for the "prison reform" movement. That makes sense. If he makes any income right now, it's probably a sure bet it will be attached if Mr. Tacopina is successful in this defamation lawsuit. Mr. Tacopina has an admirable record. I conclude it may be a happy accident Bernie won't be "able to find work" until this lawsuit is settled. Just sayin... 

Below-captioned are published and filed court documents that make for very interesting reading in themselves.
