Sent home Limping

Last Saturday, I posted the story here on Babalu of the great general of the revolution, Rafael Del Pino, and his attempt to employ castro-style tactics to silence his critics and opponents. He filed a lawsuit against several people, including radio and TV personalities here in Miami, for having the impudence to openly question and criticize his politics and his advocacy for the normalization of relations with the murderous castro regime. In my post, I welcomed his open demonstration of complicity with the dictatorship, which makes it much easier for those of us who believe in justice and refuse to compromise our morals to single him—and those like him—out in a crowd.
As was expected, the judge dismissed the lawsuit. And as it turns out, one of the defendants, Radio Mambi radio personality Marta Flores, was represented by one of Babalublog’s faithful readers, Michael Pancier along with Frank Herrera of the Rothstein Rosenfeldt Adler law firm in Ft. Lauderdale and Miguel de Grandy. It was Michael who drafted all the papers that gave the great general of the revolution a firsthand lesson in democracy and freedom of speech and sent him limping home.
Congratulations Mike for the great job done by you and your co-counsels!

  1. Not only was he sent home limping… His bank account has a few $$$$ less. I’ve heard through the grapevine that this “Gran hijo de…. La Robolucion” has to pay Marta Flores’ legal fees. If anyone knows this is a fact, please advice. That would really, really, really, make my day!

  2. Congratulations on a job well done Mike!
    I’ve been waiting for a long time for someone to bring down that poor excuse of a human being. I hope you take him to the cleaners.

  3. I wish I could be happier about this, but beyond this guy being foiled, as he certainly deserved to be, there’s the fact that, for like the zillionth time, a Cuban (at least a nominal one) has played along with or into the hands of the worst Cuba has ever produced. It’s not just shameful and disgusting, it’s depressing and disturbing. This guy is definitely not an isolated case, not in principle, regardless of the specific details of his situation.
    One way or another, his name is Legion, as it has been all along the miserable stretch of the last half century. No country, especially one as small as Cuba, can afford to produce so much bad seed. A country or society, like a person’s liver, can only neutralize so much toxic shit before its limits are exceeded and it becomes overwhelmed and sick. That’s what happened to Cuba, and the Castros and their innner circle did NOT and COULD NOT do it by themselves. We’re still unable or unwilling to face what really happened and to deal with it seriously, without looking away or resorting to convenient and comfortable scapegoats.
    The real problem I have with this guy is not so much him or what he’s done, but how many other Cubans have done something similar or worse.
