Eric Holder cashes in on #MeToo scandal by offering ‘crisis’ litigation services

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Former Attorney General Eric Holder has made a name for himself as a leader of the so-called #Resistance in California. But it seems that title isn’t paying the bills — and now, Holder has taken to some ethically-questionable means of making ends meet.

According to a report from the Washington Examiner, Holder and his team at the law firm Covington & Burling are now offering crisis management services to a number of Hollywood big shots who may have some skeletons in their own closets — particularly in relation to the #MeToo movement.

“Crisis Litigators”

Holder and his team of “crisis litigators” conducted over 200 interviews and reviewed more than 3 million documents in response to allegations of sexual harassment hat plagued the top executives at Uber in 2017.

Their findings led to the firing of cofounder and former CEO Travis Kalanick, as well as the implementation of a streamlined human resources process and oversight board for future sexual harassment allegations — and now it seems they want to help more Hollywood bigwigs.

Holder’s work seems to operate as a preventative measure — he and his team come in quietly and address potential trouble prior to that trouble turning into a public relations nightmare.

“The lesson of Uber is it’s vastly better to look at these issues proactively rather than reactively,” Aaron Lewis, one of Holder’s partners in the venture, said of their project.

This means they want to keep these things out of the public eye.

But doesn’t the public deserve to know?

Hollywood Needs Holder’s Help?

Following the explosion of scandal surrounding disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein that erupted a few months later, Holder’s team was contacted by nearly two dozen nervous companies seeking assistance.

“It went from zero to 100,” Lindsay Burke, another partner in the venture, explained. “Some companies are trying to do this proactively and get out there and figure out, ‘What don’t we know?’”

The law firm declined to identify any of their Hollywood clients, of course, but did confirm that they are currently working with at least one major media corporation to help institute a preventative culture in the age of #MeToo.

Whether the general public hears about anything that is found — or if problems discovered are quietly dealt with — is another question entirely.
