Todd Black Who? Blink34 New Spokesperson for Casey Anthony Defense Baez Law Firm, Part 1


Blink34, the new spokesperson for The Baez Law firm statement:

“.. Mr. Baez would like everyone to know his Client is a Hot mess of a human and baby killer. You  morons are complete suckers if you think he gives a rats *tail* what happens to Casey Anthony,  and he would like you to know he has already contracted the purchase of a BIGGER boat than  Geraldo’s, but will not be sailing on it shirtless.  He would appreciate all of you continuing to go  about your business while he leads his Client to her death, costs the state of Florida millions,  and fills out his Onyx card application …” (Blink34)

Pick up the jaws, I am not really the new spokesperson for Jose Baez, defense attorney of record to Casey Anthony. But, I could be. Apparently anyone can, it is protected by the First Amendment Free speech clause according to Mr. Baez’s attorney, Mr. Timothy Chinaris and Peter Tillman, President Press Corp Media

Strangely enough, although Baez allows Todd Black to make well over 300 statements on behalf of his office, both in the form of press releases and live and recorded interviews,  he states in his response to the inquiry by the Florida Bar that Black is not his spokesperson, he was unaware and did not participate in any of his releases or contribute to his comments representing his office.
OOPS. Must have  forgotten this little alfresco chit chat (VIDEO 4:01 mark) with the press.

Apparently the Florida Bar association is only permitted to evaluate the evidence submitted with the complaint, or Ms. Clark does not watch Channel 9 nightly, so the investigation by the FBA has been dropped.  Presumably we should expect to hear of Mr. Baez plans to file civil action for defamation against Mr. Black toot – sweet, right? Wrong.   

“..In our 34 years of working with attorneys on high pressure cases, never have we witnessed  such disgusting media conduct, and as Press Corps Media continues its proud work in behalf of The Baez Law Firm on Casey Anthony matters, all we can hope for is that reporters and News  Directors try to remember that ETHICS AND PROFESSIONALISM is what was taught in journalism  school, not blood-thirsty ratings…”  Todd Black

Yes, you are actually reading an excerpt from a PCM release where Black reiterates he is working on behalf of the firm, do not adjust your screen or swear off the martini.
Here’s a thought. Remember Black’s live flub on CNN with Mike Galanos which predates the inquiry to the bar, October 16, to be precise?

…”This is a very serious case involving the loss of the life of a little girl …”

If there is determined to be any prior knowledge on the part of the defense via Dominic Casey as to Caylee’s remains where they were ultimately found, would it be a stretch to consider that perhaps Black had inside knowledge and his flub was based on something he KNEW?

To invoke or to not invoke, that is the question.  Not any more according to all parties, Black has no standing for privilege in this case. I say worth a sit down for OCSO, no?

      So Baez is not responsible for the actions of his spokesperson because Todd Black is not Baez’s spokesperson?

      Beam me up Scottie.

      How comical is this … the Fox Orlando article discussing the motion being thrown out references Todd Black as Baez spokesperson.

      For the past two months, the Florida Bar Association has been investigating Baez’s involvement with Press Corp. Media that included a series of faxes sent by Todd Black, Baez’s spokesperson.

      The FL Bar may be the only people who think that Todd Black was not employed by Jose Baez. What story does not include Todd Black’s name prefaced by Baez spokesman? Would not one think that Baez would have corrected the media for printing such lies?

      All this time Todd Black has been passing himself off as Baez spokesperson and you mean he is not, really? I wonder how many media types were told by Todd Black that he was the official Baez law firm spokesman?

      Caylee Anthony saga: Will a private jailhouse funeral fly? Family plans to announce date for public funeral tomorrow

      posted by halboedeker on Jan 27, 2009 6:43:17 PM

      WESH-Channel 2 offered a stunning development: George and Cindy Anthony hope to reunite with daughter Casey for a private funeral behind bars for toddler Caylee Marie.

      “An unprecedented jailhouse funeral,” WESH’s Bob Kealing called it.

      “We are trying to work with the jail,” Brad Conway, attorney for George and Cindy Anthony, told WESH. “I know Mr. [Jose] Baez has put some time in to accomplishing that goal. Hopefully, we’ll know by the end of the week whether that’s possible.” (Baez is the attorney for Casey Anthony.)

      They shouldn’t get their hopes up.

      “It is highly unlikely any such request would be granted,” a corrections spokesman said.

      Conway said the family plans to announce a date for a public funeral tomorrow.

      Then there are the dolls. Production has stopped on a Caylee Anthony doll, but three Casey voodoo dolls are for sale on the Internet, WESH reported. Can this case get stranger?

      WOFL-Channel 35 reported that Baez has filed a motion asking the state attorney general to take over from prosecutors. The reason? Baez cited prosecutors’ filing complaints anonymously against him with the Florida Bar.

    3. Ellie on January 27th, 2009 9:28 pm

      Has anyone ever seen THIS Todd Black? Does he even exist as a true media spokesperson? If so, he needs to get in another line of business as so far he has only added to the embarrasment and bumbling of Baez, and that’s a tall order.

    4. HOPE on January 27th, 2009 9:30 pm

      Don’t you just love those ‘slick Willy’ types?

      Willy takes credit for everything you do…
      Bills ya out at $250 an hour,
      while he pays you $25.
      When the work is good,
      Willy brags about what a good client you are.
      He wouldn’t trust your work to any one else.
      When Willy messes up, he blames it on his people. But, when his people mess up,
      he doesn’t, even, know them…


      The Florida Bar Association:

      Better wise up or this trial is going to cost the State of Florida twice as much as it should…

      You don’t need THAT kind of publicity!

      Will the REAL Jose Baez, please Stand Up!


    6. ANewGirl on January 27th, 2009 10:34 pm

      An unprecidented jailhouse funeral…Holy Smokes! That will be the DAY the possible/potential murderer gets to have a service behind bars—ARE THEY EVEN SERIOUS FOR remotely even attempting to request this?

      The dolls, so creepy & bizarre…and the answer to: and can this case get stranger? It already is like something from another planet-….as Red said, Well, Hell!

      then BEAM ME UP PLEASE SCOTTIE B/C SOMETIMES IT MAKES YOU WONDER—just exactly how much intelligent life is there truly left here on Earth? Sheeeeeeeeeeesh….so bizarre & disturbing this entire sordid mess.

      WHAT ABOUT CAYLEE? We keep coming back to that! That poor baby girl had NO CHOICE, no voice and we are we, supposed to applaud fricken’ George & Cindy Anthony now because they are finally nearing making a decision on funeral arrangements? Give us a break, somebody–please!

    8. yoyo muffintop on January 27th, 2009 11:27 pm

      #1: I’m not sure you’re understanding what Blink34 is getting at – in general you always want law-firm-retained PR firms, not client-retained. Having that greatly increases the chances of protection under the attorney-client privilege and creates the work-product doctrine as an alternative basis upon which to avoid disclosure.

      If Mr. Black was not hired by Mr. Baez then it will be difficult to sustain any privilege claims.

      It’s a huge misstep by Mr. Baez, imo.

    9. yoyo muffintop on January 28th, 2009 12:19 am

      But I will disagree with Blink34 – it won’t be the OCSO hearing anything from Todd Black, it’ll be a grand jury.
      Of course, as a disclaimer, that is if anything of value has been told to him. He might not know a thing – he most likely is just a “so-so” PR person.

    10. Confused on January 28th, 2009 8:03 am

      I predicted Black’s mea culpa when the Bar Association inquiry was first announced.

      I am surprised that, “he states in his response to the inquiry by the Florida Bar that Black is not his spokesperson.” Baez didn’t need to go that far, he was off the hook with Black’s statement.

      Can this reponse by Baez to the Florida Bar be posted for us? I’d like to see his reponse to the other charge.

    11. Blink34 on January 28th, 2009 8:09 am

      yoyo- that is exactly what i am getting at, your correct. well, i should say, partly.. I believe Black is the the conduit to how the defense is being funded, and proof of a possible conflict of interest on the part of Baez, as we will see in part 2.

      I also might agree to your point as to the Grand Jury, especially given this situation. One thing for sure, Black will continue to give us fodder.

      New Caylee Anthony Clues in Air Freshener and Garbage Bags?

      Wednesday, January 28, 2009


      Caylee Anthony’s remains were found in December, more than five months after her disappearance.
      This is a rush transcript from “On the Record ,” January 27, 2009. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

      GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Now to Florida, where former LAPD homicide detective Mark Fuhrman is on the ground investigating the murder of Caylee Anthony. Mark has been talking to investigators and has some inside information about the case. One clue involves air freshener, and another involves garbage bags.

      Mark joins us live from Orlando. Mark, can we start with air freshener? What is that clue?

      MARK FUHRMAN, FORMER LAPD HOMICIDE DETECTIVE: Well, you know, it is interesting, Greta. When you read the documents that were released, you see “air freshener sheet.”

      I kind of thought I knew what that was, but I got confirmation that it’s actually the fabric softener sheets that you put in the dryer with clothes, and the most predominant brand is Bounce air freshener.

      Now, the interesting part about this is they were not used. In other words, when they come out of the dryer, they look all crumpled like a hanky. They were actually folded and flat, like they look come out of a box. And they were specifically used to try to overcome the smell in the trunk.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Garbage bags is also one of the clues that you’re tracking, because-why did you pick garbage bags? Is it because of how the remains were found?

      FUHRMAN: Not only the remains were found in a certain garbage bag, but you want to know what size they come in.

      There was different colored handles or tie wraps that were used in several places in the descriptions, not only when they were out at some of the possible scenes, but what Caylee Anthony was actually in, the bag that she was in, the tie straps, what was taken from the home.

      So we went out there, and we found out that there are black bags, all of which-they have yellow, blue — they have red. They have different — packages have different colored handles for how many in that certain bag, different brands. But, by in large, the red ones belong to a certain brand, the blue ones belong to another, and the yellow belong to another. So we wanted to go out there and figure this out a little bit so we would know what we were dealing with.

      VAN SUSTEREN: What about the forensic examinations, the tests done the entomologists, the bug people, the soil people, the botanists? Has that come back yet? Has that given any indication as to the strength of the prosecution’s case about when that body was placed, or the remains, actually, in that area?

      FUHRMAN: Well, Greta, when you talk about the vegetation, the two leaves that were found, the soil samples from the shovel in the trunk – we have been told that hasn’t come back yet. It was not in the documents that were released. Our information is that it has not come back from the FBI lab yet.

      I have a suspicion that that evidence collectively has not come back for a reason, and that reason, I believe, is that they are holding it back, and if they are hold it back, then they do not have to disclose it quite yet.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Mark, one of the things — we have seen an awful lot of documents coming out of Florida, which you do not see in many states, because they have this broad sunshine law where they have to surrender.

      I know that the sheriff’s department’s thinks that it is getting criticized for releasing the documents, but I think the criticism, if there is some, should be directed at the state law if people don’t like it, not the sheriff’s department. Am I right?

      FUHRMAN: Yes, you are right. And they are a little frustrated. They get hit by the media because these documents are released. What people really do not understand the Florida laws is that they think that they are really hurting the case and tainting the jury pool, and it would be hard to sit a jury and give a fair and impartial trial.

      But Florida law is this. It goes from the investigator to the prosecutor. If the prosecutor files a charge, then the defense attorney is required to get discovery–in other words, the documents.

      Once that discovery is complete, 24 hours later, those documents are released by the attorney general to anybody in the public that requests them.

      Now, normally, the sheriff’s department or the police department would ask certain media agencies to not do it for certain reasons —

      VAN SUSTEREN: Yes, the media would be all over it on this one. Mark, thank you.

      FUHRMAN: Thanks, Greta.

    13. brie. on January 28th, 2009 2:35 pm

      So Baez wants the prosecutors taken off the case and replaced with the Attorney General because of anonymous complaints to the Bar Association. What is this guys deal, I guess he knows he’s going to lose. An anonymous complaint is just that, anonymous and he is blaming the prosecution. Maybe Black did it or maybe Baez did it and then turned around and defended the complaint. This guy is a dirty deal.

      The prosecutors, the investigators, The FBI, Orange County sheriff and those that work with him have been doing a great job of collecting evidence and building a case. Baez wants a report every 5 minutes and then starts his winning and complaining if he doesn’t get it.

      In the video he talks about Casey and the death penalty and he said they are prepared to handle that.

      I guess the Anthony’s may end up with 2 kids in jail.

    14. Blink34 on January 28th, 2009 2:43 pm

      Here’s the thing, I cannot find an avenue to lodge an “anonymous’ complaint with the FBA anywhere. Even as a private citizen, it tells you your ID will be known to the lawyer your lodging an inquiry against, so.. dont get that.

    15. brie. on January 28th, 2009 2:58 pm

      Baez also complained that he didn’t know that possible evidence was sent off to be tested for DNA from the trunk of Casey’s car. Since when did they have to notify him of that, there were no documents.

      I bet he’s got something sleezy to hide….

    16. bettejean on January 28th, 2009 4:03 pm

      Baez, like his client, will end up gettin caught in his own web. He clearly doesn’t have the experience to navigate a trial of this magnitude. His akward attempts to mimic Johnny Cochran are so transparent and laughable. Everytime he opens his mouth he only proves what an incompetent buffoon he is. Let him continue to bury himself, it’s almost entertaining to watch at this point.

    17. pax on January 28th, 2009 7:08 pm

      Your beautiful 2 year old is murdered, thrown in the bushes in a trash bag and you did not do it.

      You are truly innocent and jailed on a murder charge.

      What do you do?

      Refuse to go to court and fight for your innocence so that police can then re-direct their effort and seek justice for your child?

      Don’t bother requesting to attend your child’s funeral?
      Oops, do you even bother to plan a funeral?

      just sayin’………….

    18. pax on January 28th, 2009 7:13 pm

      Sorry guys, I am pissed off with this family.

      I am just sickened and sad and mad.

      I will plan the funeral and attend if they don’t want to!

      RIP Caylee

    19. Confused on January 28th, 2009 8:42 pm

      I think we now know where the complaint came from. I hope the news picks up on it tomorrow.

    20. brie. on January 28th, 2009 9:22 pm

      Conway said he was going to make arrangements for the funeral this week.

      But then again Conway also said George only left a suicide note in his car but the police said they found an unfinished suicide letter.

      The Anthony’s want to have a funeral inside the prison, Casey could care less. Caylee’s casket doesn’t belong inside the prison, Casey already said her sick minded goodbyes. Caylee can’t even be buried as a body instead just remains from a badly decomposed body.

    21. HOPE on January 28th, 2009 11:03 pm

      You would think that they’d want to have her service, with or without her bones. Where does one go when their tattered and torn? To the ones that always love them best, no matter what. But, not the Anthony’s. They want to clan together. I hope George is making a break for it… in the right direction.

      Casey is brain dead. She can’t feel for anyone but herself. She has no compassion for anyone… not a good bone in her body. And Lee? Lee is going to learn the hard way, you reap what you sow. Kinda makes a person wonder about what kind of parent they must have been to raise such heartless children.

      And Caylee… Even her funeral arrangements have to be planned by a stranger.

      That’s pitiful.

    22. HOPE on January 28th, 2009 11:06 pm

      I just hope they don’t turn Caylee’s funeral
      into a pity-party for Casey…

      That’d be sick!

    23. Shelbar53 on January 29th, 2009 6:53 am

      Bear with me, I’m having a hard time understanding. Im going to try and explain it the way I understand, please correct me where im wrong.

      Baez hired Black but is now denying that. Baez is saying Black is only offering support because Black was hired by some family in Connecticut to help the Anthony’s. This family in Connecticut will pay for Black’s services for the “life of the case”.

      Florida bar investigated Baez due to comments made by Black while in his employment, but since Black didn’t work for Baez, Baez is off the hook. However; Black is still making comments as if he is retained by Baez.

      Now, if Baez is saying he didn’t hire Black, Can LE question Black about what he knows and when he knew it?

      Im also trying to figure out how this impacts on the money trail. I mean does this have anything to do with it?

      Or am I missing the total picture of what’s going on. I promise, I had a fully functioning brain before I became interested in this case.

      {Hi Blink, I try and look for your work, I think you are one heck of a sleuth. I’m so glad I got to know your investigative work from a few months ago.}

    24. Dolce on January 29th, 2009 8:23 am

      Great post Blink, very informative.

      Given that no one has ever seen this “Todd Black”, I am wondering if there is not a direct connection of this “Todd Black” to Baez’s “Media Relations Major” of a daughter Christina?

    25. Blink34 on January 29th, 2009 10:06 am

      Shel- yep, you got it right.. Yes OCSO can question Black, and I hope they do. For the first time ever I heard Black decline comment yesterday, I take that as a sign.

      Thanks for the kind words all.

      Casey is a SCARED MONKEY, that is why she does not want to go to her court hearings !! STOP WITH THE SPEACIAL TREATMENT FOR CAESY !! Casey does not want to be in COURT, cause then the REALITY WILL START TO HIT HER !!!
