On September 13, 2010, just minutes before commencing trial on contempt charges in the Parsa Law Group defamation case, Parsa and UDR’s Attorneys, Eric J. Goodman, David A. Berstein and Nicholas D. Myers disclosed they knew the location of Erin Baldwin’s property. They stated that UDR sold it to James Parsa of Parsa Law Group (also their client) to use as evidence against her.
Goodman, Berstein and Myers wanted to make a deal. If Erin Baldwin agreed to not move forward with the Parsa Law Group contempt proceedings (because they knew the charges were going to be dismissed) then they would return her property seized by UDR to her.
In addition, Goodman, Berstein and Myers wanted Erin Baldwin to sign an Agreement that she would never blog about UDR, Parsa Law Group, OR THEM ever again. Baldwin rejected their offer stating “My First Amendment rights are not for sale.” But this raises an important question: Why would Parsa and UDR’s attorneys need an Agreement if they already had valid Permanent Injunctions in place?
