The attorneys at Bailey and Kennedy, a prestigious Las Vegas law firm, will never put me on their holiday card list.
They’ve tried their best, on behalf of client Jeff Guinn, the son of former Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn, to ruin my reputation and career. Instead they fortified the state’s shield law protecting journalists, already one of the strongest in the country.
I’ve chronicled how thousands of investors lost hundreds of millions of dollars while Jeff Guinn (who claims in deposition he was exempt from Nevada law) flagrantly violated disclosure laws…. and Nevada regulators, besieged with complaints, did nothing.
So it was unlikely I’d receive a response when I once again emailed Jeff Guinn and his attorneys, Dennis Kennedy and John Bailey, asking a question for a book I’m writing about Guinn’s crumbled hard-money brokerage, Aspen Financial, and Kenny Guinn’s role in securing funding for the company’s headquarters. It’s a legitimate question that warrants an answer.
But even I was surprised by what I did receive, albeit, by mistake.
Here’s a copy of the email sent by Dennis Kennedy to John Bailey, Jeff Guinn… and, oh yes, me. Now, I have no idea what “foaming” means, nor understand the need for a snorkel. Feel free to enlighten. Stay classy, Bailey and Kennedy!
John: Your girlfriend is foaming. If you want to respond I’ll loan you my snorkel. Dennis
