Are you serious? First of all what do you care what they say or think, 2nd you do not have to proove anything to anyone except your superiors. And if you had this surgery and were in a cast, your dr can provide any information to your employer. People have to stop this thing about suing people, thats all anyone talks about anymore, " Oh, Im going to sue this person, because they said I was a liar" come on get over it. If these people mean that much to you, it seems that you don't mean that much to them!!!! case in point

Really? We'll see if any lawyer takes this on.

Meanwhile, it didn't take long for a scumbag like you to get in a little lawyer bashing.

Spent a 125.00 dollars and talked to a lawyer. She said that this is indeed defamation also fraud and conspiracy to defraud. One more thing those who are involved will not be able to bring up that my employers insurance company paid the 54,000 dollar medical bill. Dust off that check book

Oh well, it looks like he found himself a lawyer.

I guess there's a reason lawyers have such wonderful reputations.

Massachusetts Lawmaker's Pledge to 'Rip Apart' Child Rape Victims at Trial Draws Fury

Massachusetts Rep. James Fagan speaks last month.

Massachusetts Rep. James Fagan speaks last month.

A Massachusetts politician and defense attorney has touched off a firestorm with his shocking public vow to torment and "rip apart" child rape victims who take the witness stand if the state legislature passed stiff mandatory sentences for child sex offenders.

Rep. James Fagan, a Democrat, made the comments during debate last month on the state House floor.

"I'm gonna rip them apart," Fagan said of young victims during his testimony on the bill. "I'm going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined, that when they’re 8 years old, they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”

Fagan said as a defense attorney it would be his duty to do that in order to keep his clients free from a "mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions."

Fagan did not respond to repeated requests for comment from FOXNews.com.

His remarks drew the ire of local activists as well as colleagues.

Jessica Lunsford's Father: My Daughter Might Be Alive if Investigation Wasn't Botched Jessica Lunsford's Parents Will Sue Over Handling of Case Judge Sentences John Couey to Death for Murdering Jessica Lunsford “I thought his comments were over the top and unnecessary,” Massachusetts House Minority Leader Bradley Jones told FOXNews.com on Wednesday.

“I appreciate that he’s a defense attorney, and felt he had a point to make, but I think it was unnecessary,” said Jones, who supported an original version of the bill. “It was excessive.”

The father of the Florida girl for whom Jessica's Law is named also blasted Fagan after hearing the comments.

Mark Lunsford, whose 9-year-old daughter was abducted and buried alive in a trash bag by a sex offender in 2005, told the Boston Herald on Tuesday that Fagan should take the rights of victimized children seriously.

“Why doesn’t he figure out a way to defend that child and put these kind of people away instead of trying to figure ways for defense attorneys to get around Jessica’s Law?” Lunsford told the paper. “These are very serious crimes that nobody wants to take serious. What about the rights of these children?”

The bill that he opposed eventually passed the House and set mandatory minimum sentences of between 10 and 15 years for a set of different offenses against children ranging from assault to sexual crimes. A version is still pending in the state Senate.

From a legal perspective, law professor Phyllis Goldfarb said Fagan was probably expressing a basic courtroom truth – that it is a defense attorney’s job to test the prosecution’s case, especially when mandatory penalties are on the line.

“It is fundamentally true … if the proof is coming almost exclusively through a child witness you may have to find a way to test it. That’s the attorney-client obligation there,” Goldfarb told FOXNews.com.

Goldfarb, who used to direct the Criminal Justice Clinic at Boston College Law School, said Fagan used some over-the-top language, but that he probably didn't relish the idea of cross-examining a child. She said it's just his job.

“You do have to challenge a witness,” she said. “Some people find ways of doing that that are loyal to their role as defense attorneys -- testing the proof (in ways) that aren’t abusive to a witness, but it's very hard.

“And I think being put in that hard position is what he seems to be railing against here, using language that’s probably a little bit hyperbolic.”

Lunsford will be in Massachusetts on Wednesday to push the state Senate to include mandatory prison time in the state's final version of Jessica's Law, according to the Herald.

Reader Information: State Rep. James Fagan is a Democrat representing the Third Bristol District, which includes the city of Taunton.

In the first place, you're getting your "information" from Fox, which ought to tell you it's suspect.

In the second place, if you listen to what the opponents of the bill are saying, you might realize that they are opposing the bill because they think it will make prosecution of sex offenders harder.

You can't understand the merits of the legislation by thumping your chest and acting tough. You actually have to listen and think.
