Stormy? No no my friend. You're confused. Skanky is an average looking blonde bimbo with fake tits.

It gives the height as 5'9" to 6'0" which would rule out Brady. But I wouldn't trust my own memory to accurately recall a stranger's face years later. And I doubt this will help find the man, assuming he is real. There's something a bit too generic about it. Nothing really stands out as a particularly distinguishing feature to me. It could be almost any white dude who looks vaguely like that.

The whole thing reminds me of the "Some Hispanic Guy" and the "Bushy-bearded Guy" bullshit.

No, memory is not that good.

Ever notice how NYPD police sketches always make the perp (if not obviously black) look a little bit Puerto Rican?

The first time I noticed it was when they caught David Berkowitz.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

Meanwhile, back in reality, the Hat of the Pope writes about the latest ruling on Cohen:
There were two themes to the hearing. One is that Michael Cohen's situation is grave. Judge Otero — a federal judge for 15 years, who has seen thousands of federal criminal cases — repeatedly commented that it was clear from the search of Cohen's office and subsequent proceedings before Judge Kimba Wood in New York that Cohen faced a strong probability of prosecution. "It's substantially likely some kind of criminal action will be filed," based on the nature of the search, Judge Otero said at one point. Later, based on his experience overseeing warrants, he opined "something big is going to follow."
["Snip!"--Ed.]
Cohen is in a bind: it's clear from the search of his office that the FBI is investigating the hush-money contract I am not sure that is "clear" but I am not sure it is not. I like cats. he brokered between President Trump and Stormy Daniels, and it would be imbecilic to anything but assert his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination in answer to all questions about that subject. But defending Stormy Daniels' case in Los Angeles would require him to answer questions to defend the validity and enforceability of the contract. If he takes the Fifth he almost certainly loses the civil suit and the contract is voided. There's a remedy for that dilemma — Judge Otero has the discretion to stay the civil case while the criminal case proceeds. Judge Otero is supposed to consider factors including the prejudice to Daniels if the case stops, the prejudice to Cohen if it moves forward, and the interests of the public.

[Very technical, but necessary, explanation of "what" Cohen should have done and probably must do to win a stay follows. See the Japanese Original at the linkypoo.]

Daniels' public behavior — and the behavior of her attorney, Avenatti — were just as adverse to their legal interests. One of the factors in deciding whether to stay the case is whether the stay would prejudice Daniels's interest. How, asked Judge Otero, is Daniels prejudiced, when she's repeatedly told her story on TV, and her lawyer has repeatedly been on TV to talk about the case? Hasn't she necessarily ignored the alleged chilling effect of the contract? Blakely [Cohen's Lawyer] snarked that Avenatti has talked about the case on TV 53 times — "54, if you count Bill Maher." Avenatti struggled to explain how Ms. Daniels was still laboring under Cohen's feckless bluster that he would win $1 million from each statement she made and go on vacation with the proceeds. But the judge was clearly skeptical that the threat of the hush money agreement was actually prejudicing her any more. Avenatti, too, had to eat his words. It was in his interests to argue that a stay was fruitless because the federal investigation could take years; Blakely twisted the knife quoting Avenatti's pronouncements that Cohen would be indicted within 90 days. Avenatti was forced to concede, in decorous terms, that his pronouncement was shit-talking [Citation needed.].

In short, everyone's public bluster and press maneuvering detracted from their litigation interests. It is often thus.

Judge Otero's questions implied some meaningful points. First, there was a significant discussion of whether Cohen would be forced to take the Fifth in response to answers at a deposition, and whether the stay should be deferred until he is called upon to do so. That implies that Judge Otero is seriously considering Daniels' request for limited discovery to determine whether any contract was formed, and therefore whether Cohen and Trump can compel Daniels to arbitrate. Normally an arbitrator decides whether an arbitration agreement is enforceable — but a judge can allow limited discovery and a quick mini-trial on the question of whether the contract containing the arbitration agreement was ever formed in the first place. Daniels' theory is that it wasn't, and that a deposition of Cohen and Trump will prove it. If Daniels can compel discovery of Cohen — and maybe even the President — it will be momentous. Second, Judge Otero also suggested that he might carve out Daniels' claim for defamation against Cohen, which is premised on Cohen's comments about Daniels in the media. Cohen was filed a well-crafted anti-SLAPP motion to strike that claim and is not arguing that claim needs to be arbitrated. Because it's an issue of law, Judge Otero may reach it even if he does stay the case. Third, Judge Otero noted that if he rejects a stay, the ruling could be immediately appealable, pointing to more potential delay. (Any ruling on the anti-SLAPP motion is also immediately appealable.)

Judge Otero asked tough questions of both sides, often asking questions which — in isolation — sounded like he was deciding one way or the other, only to point in a different direction a moment later. He was well prepared and skeptical of both sides, a model of what you want an independent judiciary to be. Both Blakely and Avenatti was well-prepared and effective advocates. Trump's lawyers looked concerned very competently.

The end result was this: Cohen has until next Wednesday to file a declaration supporting his request and establishing that he intends to take the Fifth. Avenatti can file a rebuttal within 24 hours. Then the judge will rule in writing. Based on my observation, I think that there's a strong chance that Cohen will lose the motion outright if he doesn't file the declaration. If he does, I suspect Judge Otero will grant a limited stay — not so much to preserve Cohen's interests in the civil case, but to give his lawyers a reasonable amount of time to get a grip on what is going on and make longer-term decisions about how to deal with the civil case. Judge Otero repeatedly noted that the criminal case could take a long time, but that it was reasonable for the lawyers to want to regroup to evaluate the situation and how to weigh Cohen's interests in the two matters. I also suspect Judge Otero will hear the anti-SLAPP motion against Daniels' defamation claim — it's a strong motion and a weak claim.
