OPINION AND EDITORIAL
So-called “Hollywood film maker” Jason Goodman is always glad — it appears — to offer his side-kick Larry Klayman a place to cry bitter tears after a legal defeat. This time it was Larry Klayman’s loss in the Eastern District of Virginia in a new lawsuit (dismissed) which copies Klayman’s decades old lawsuit against Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
Larry Klayman, almost 70 y.o., has a colorful history of suing his former business partner (Tom Fitton) supposedly after sexual allegation charges were made against “grandpa” Klayman. Then there was that business of alleged “child abuse” between grandpa and his children in a very messy Ohio divorce. Meanwhile, the District of Columbia Bar Association apparently has a pending ethics complaint against grandpa Klayman that insinuates more sexual misconduct. Then there is the “vexatious litigant” motions against grandpa in the District of Columbia federal courts.

MISERY IN THE VIRGINIA COURTS FOR “GRANDPA” KLAYMAN
Larry Klayman filed a so-called duplicative lawsuit in Virginia that mimicked the decades old lawsuit Klayman has with Tom Fitton. This tactic is known in legal circles as “forum shopping”, looking for new jurisdictions to file lawsuits rejected elsewhere.
Although the Virginia lawsuit was dismissed 4/28/2020, grandpa Klayman has filed a series of “reconsideration” motions to prolong the death of the Virginia case.
