According to information filed with the Massachusetts Administrative Office of the Trial Court, attorney Robert Delle has signed on as William Higgins’ lawyer to represent him as he faces charges of slander and libel brought by his former opponent, state senator Harriette Chandler. Delle will also represent Higgins in his counter suit.
Delle was previously in the news for running as one of five Republicans attempting to defeat Congressman Jim McGovern, but he finished last in the primary, earning 2,864 votes.
Basically, what you have here is one of the most vocal critics of his opponent in any race this year represented by a lawyer who hasn’t been shy about voicing his own opinions, including beliefs that President Obama is both a Marxist and a Muslim. This trial should have some pretty good fireworks.
Delle can’t be reached for comment yet, but I’ll keep trying.
