It was just one of those things, you know, when you have everything perfectly arranged but nothing goes right, the mornings champions are destroyed before evening. Borden Ladner Gervais partner, David DiPaolo, flew down to Charlottetown to quash and destroy a back water blogger causing some problems for the image of the almighty Scotiabank.
DiPaolo attacked Whistle Blower blog Red Like Me much like a junk yard dog, full force, all teeth and not much thought. DiPaolo had been using his tough boy Toronto tactics, costing Scotiabank shareholders a fortune and failing miserably. Seeking an immediate and overreaching injunction against Red Like Me and Rob McEachern for defamation. DiPaolo was unable to install any fear in McEachern but asserted he had information about sources which was yet another hapless attempt at fear.
Perhaps DiPaolo had one of those, “Well you didn’t tell us that”, the line that lawyers use, before they unload excuses why they have lost. Losing against a back woods hick when you are one of the largest banks in the world can be very tough, it upsets the brands managers.
Scotiabank got dragged into a fight against truth which they have denied at every step while DPaolo tries everything he can to smear McEachern and try to scare Red Like Me away. Scotiabank Board of Directors will review the throat slitting performance on the brand by DiPaolo in his rabid attempt to beat up some hick blogger.
Scotiabank shareholders will be very disheartened and so will the partners at Borden Ladner Gervais once they understand DiPaolo and his half baked bully boy plans, cost the “firm”, the biggest book of legal business in Toronto. Nice try DiPaolo, good luck.
