‘I rebuke you’: Lin Wood deposition got heated when attorney for ex-law partners asked ‘Did Jesus tell you to take all the money?’

More than a month after Lin Wood was found liable for defaming his former law partners by saying they criminally extorted him, the attorney known for his representation Richard Jewell has moved to stop the federal case as he appeals a Georgia judge’s ruling that an insurance company had “no duty to indemnify and no duty to defend its insured,” namely Wood. Now, Wood’s at times contentious deposition in the federal case has gone public.

Wood, who several months ago retired his law license rather than facing possible disbarment for his pro-Donald Trump post-2020 election litigation, has been embroiled in a dispute over money for years with his former law partners Nicole Wade, Jonathan Grunberg, and Taylor Wilson.

U.S. District Judge Michael Brown agreed in March that Wood did “not even try to show” his extortion claims against the plaintiffs “were true.”

“Indeed, he admits Plaintiffs did not commit ‘the crime of extortion.’ But he insists his extortion accusations were still non-false because they contained ‘loose, figurative, or hyperbolic language’ that no reasonable person could construe as a genuine accusation of criminal conduct,” Brown wrote. “The Court disagrees.”
