Developing: Egan Foote Files Lawsuit Against CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin

Law Clerk and Hot Foote reader “DaMage” writes in to report that Egan Foote has filed a lawsuit against CNN Chief Legal Analyst, Jeffrey Toobin. The suit, which was filed in United States District Court Southern District of New York, where apparently even Hot Foote has access, claims that Toobin’s new book ‘The Nine’ is a rip-off of the canceled ABC drama starring Mr. Foote. “Preposterous,” said Toobin. “My book is about the Supreme Court; I’m pretty sure his show involved bank robbers or something.” Mr. Toobin continued, “This lawsuit is frivolous and an abuse of the American legal system. Personally, I think someone needs to Fine the Foote.”

When asked to respond to Mr. Toobin’s comments, Egan replied, “Jeffrey Toobin said that? So you’re saying he watched ‘The Nine’?”

We’ll continue to update this story as more information becomes available…
