Legal Foote-notes: An Egan Legal Roundup
With so much happening in the life of Egan Foote, we here at Hot Foote wanted to take this opportunity to update you on Egan’s numerous legal matters in the first of an ongoing series called “Legal Foote-Notes.” Below is a brief rundown of the various legal issues surrounding the enigmatic (and apparently litigious) insurance processor. Needless to say, Egan has been keeping his attorney busy as of late, not only with the numerous criminal investigations into his often erratic behavior, but also with a series of lawsuits against a number of different parties. Hot Foote will continue to update these stories as they develop.
- On the 50th Anniversary of the Little Rock Crisis, Egan filed a lawsuit against the so-called “Little Rock 9” for what Egan claims to be the “uncanny similarities” between this event in American history and his canceled ABC prime time drama ‘The Nine.’ A hearing is set for November 9th, 2007.
- Papers were filed early Monday morning in a suit by Egan against retail shoe store Foot Locker. In his suit, Mr. Foote claims misapropriation of his name. Egan is seeking an unspecified amount in damages from the shoe retailer.
- We recently reported on Egan Foote’s lawsuit against CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin and his recent book ‘The Nine.’ This lawsuit is moving forward, with depositions schedule for October 22, 2007.
- Egan Foote is seeking an injunction against upcoming movie ‘Nine,’ seeking to have production stopped on the big screen adaptation of the Tony Award winning musical. “This is a travesty,” said Mr. Foote in a press conference outside of the courthouse. “The studio is clearly trying to benefit from the good will that ‘The Nine’ received in its strong, albeit brief, run on the ABC Network. This cannot continue. Egan, out!”
- And rounding out this edition of Legal Foote-notes, Egan Foote has filed a lawsuit against disgraced Idaho Senator Larry Craig. Craig was arrested on June 11, 2007 at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport for lewd conduct when he propositioned an undercover police officer for sex. The officer’s police report reads as follows:
At 1216 hours, Craig tapped his right foot. I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct. Craig tapped his toes several times and moves his foot closer to my foot. … The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area. Craig then proceeded to swipe his left hand under the stall divider several times, with the palm of his hand facing upward.
Egan is seeking an unspecified amount for the “irreversible damage done to the reputation of Mr. Foote arising out of Senator Craig’s foot-tapping in the airport men’s room.”
“Now when people think of the Foote, they’ll always remember Senator Craig’s use of this appendage in soliciting homosexual sex in an airport bathroom,” said Mr. Foote while appearing on the KJJY-FM morning show in Des Moines, Iowa. “I’ve got a reputation to protect!”
Egan continued, “the only Foote tapping that should be taking place is me when I begin my run reprising Savion Glover’s role in Bring in ‘da Noise/Bring in ‘da Funk on Broadway. Egan, out!”
