Eugene Podesta (Gene Podesta) Baker Donelson Lawyers Conspire Against Own Clients

More news that the law firm of Baker Donelson is not acting in its client's best interests. The law firm of Baker Donelson (where Eugene Podesta is a partner) has again been caught defrauding its own clients for monetary gain. In the latest case, several Baker Donelson's attorneys have been caught conspiring against their own clients. While it has yet to be determined the extent to which Gene Podesta was involved, the client, Resorts Development Group II (RDG II), claims in a new lawsuit that Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell and Berkowitz committed legal malpractice and conspiracy. The suit claims Baker-Donelson's attorneys had a conflict of interest in providing legal advice to RDG II because they were also representing other clients with conflicting and competing interests. The suit claims that Baker Donelson concocted the Country Crossing electronic bingo/entertainment complex idea and sought to raise millions as a last-ditch effort to save his "crumbling" real estate business. The suit claims the multiple entities had competing interests. The suit further claims Eugene Podesta's partners provided RDG II with bad legal advice when they told the entity that the games being played at Country Crossing would be legal under Alabama law. Baker Donelson told investors and other interested parties that Houston County could modify the rules and regulations of bingo as defined in a previously passed countywide amendment (Amendment 569) and that the modification would open the door for legal electronic bingo at Country Crossing "despite specific language to the contrary." Such advice was blatantly untrue and seemed intended to only help other clients attempting to attract RDG II business. As aresult of the malpractice, Baker Donelson's client suffered a loss of over &70 Million Dollars.
