As a lawyer, my "legal opinion" is what I think the law is as applied to a particular case. If I call a public figure a rapist, a child molester, a wife-beater, that is not my "legal opinion," even if it is based on what my client has told me. I had a case once, a divorce case, in which I held in my hand photographs of my client's son after his father had beaten him with a golf club. I was on the phone with the father’s lawyer in the divorce proceeding, listening to him tell me what a gold-digger my client (the wife) was. I wanted to tell him about that photograph and what I could prove his client was. I couldn't, because my client wouldn't let me. She wanted the divorce concluded as rapidly as possible. It was not my "legal opinion" that the husband was a child-abusing son of a bitch, it was my personal conclusion, based on that photograph.

This really is a lose-lose for them. And the real fun starts when Dominion replies to Powell’s legal brief.
Many conservatives now hate their own followers in the mode of classic con men--"if you're stupid enough to be conned by me, you deserve it." If you claim your followers are the real Americans and you hate them, you hate America, period.— Eve Fairbanks (@evefairbanks) March 22, 2021
