Remember that jerk lawyer accused of keying a Marine’s car on the eve of his deployment to Iraq? A veteran sends an e-mail asking for a show of support for the Marine in court today. If you’re in the Chicago area, pitch in:

Private attorney Jay R. Grodner, 55, of Chicago has been charged with a class A misdemeanor — criminal damage to property — punishable by up to one year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine, said Andy Conklin, spokesman for the state’s attorney’s office.

The court date is [today] at 1:30 pm at District 29 at Belmont and Western Ave in Chicago. A good address to use is either 2400 W. Belmont , or 3200 N Western for your gps. (It’s a few minutes off of I-90 ).

Sgt. Michael McNulty’s Lawyer will be in court and we ask that any Chicago area Veterans & Active duty also fill the court room that day to show that we will not accept our troops being treated in this manner. We will expect the courts to handle this situation with only the best outcome for Sgt. McNulty and charge this leftwing nut, attorney Jay R. Grodner to the fullest extent of the law.

John Kass at the Chicago Tribune wrote last week:

Grodner is now under investigation by the state’s Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, sources said. Commission officials declined to comment Thursday.

More than two decades ago, according to public records, Grodner received a censure by the Illinois Supreme Court after an unrelated investigation by the disciplinary commission into allegations he participated in producing phony signatures on a tax ballot initiative…

…McNulty’s car has an estimated $2,400 in damage, well within the statutory range for felony criminal damage to property. The Cook County state’s attorney’s office declined any comment on whether the case will be upgraded. But they are pursuing the matter in preparation for the Jan. 18 hearing at Belmont and Western.

What’s missing is Grodner’s side of the story.

I hope he can start providing one.

Blackfive, which brought the story to light in the blogosphere, has all the background and a photo of the Marine’s damaged car.
