Gloria Allred: Can She Prove Biker Was ‘Innocent Victim’?

Gloria Allred, attorney to the stars, has been retained by the family of Edwin Mieses, Jr, the biker who was injured in the confrontation in New York last week with an SUV driver.

A video of the incident, which was filmed on the helmet camera of one of the bikers in the group, shows a number of bikers chasing and then surrounding a Range Rover. At least three men can be seen attacking the driver of the SUV in front of his wife and child.

The incident was sparked after Edwin Mieses, Jr was knocked off his bike by the driver of the SUV. A 50 block chase ensued. When the vehicle was forced to stop, the driver’s window was smashed by the some of the bikers and he was beaten.

Gloria Allred told reporters that her client was trying to help the SUV driver when he was run over. She said: “His sole intention was to defuse the situation.”

She alleges that the video footage shows that Mieses, aged 32, had his back to the SUV and was telling other bikers to walk away when he was hit “at top speed.” Referring to the video footage taken of the incident she added: “Watch that huge vehicle, SUV, blast off, and watch it as it is lifted several feet off the ground as it rolls over Edwin Mieses,”

She also spoke about the fact that Mieses and his family are not condoning what happened to the SUV driver: “Edwin Mieses and his family deplore what happened to the driver of the SUV.” “However”, she continued, “let us not lose sight of the fact that Mr. Mieses had done nothing to Mr. Lien,” she added. “We don’t think our client should have been run over and crushed.”

Rosalyn Ng, the wife of the SUV driver said that although she sympathised with what happened to Mr. Mieses her husband did the right thing by fleeing the bikers as he was in a “life-threatening situation.”

She added “Our fear for our lives was confirmed when the incident ended with the ruthless and brutal attack on my husband, me, and, most importantly, our two-year-old child.”

It is not yet known if the family of Mr Mieses will sue the driver of the SUV as police continue to investigate the incident. It also remains to be seen what line attorney Gloria Allred will take in representing her client and his family.

    When you run with a pack of wild dogs you get fleas. Allred is grasping at straws here. These so called bikers are nothing short of THUGS, respectable bikers would never pull what this group did to terrorize motorists. This wasn't their first attack. The fact the their license plates were off the majority of the bike tells me they knew they would be up to no good when they began their day. Allred in nothing more than an ambulance chaser.

    Gloria Allred is an ignorant bitch… If he was just enjoying his ride he shouldn't have stopped. The biker might have been a great guy, but he was participating in the harassing of the SUV driver. He was acting like a thug, and he got treated like one.

    That damn blood-sucking leach needs to get a life or get laid

    For ANY Attorney to even think they could win this with the video evidence shown has got to be crazy! I can say that Mr. Mieses is a innocent victim. I am sorry it happened to him but to put the blame on the SUV driver is just not right, He put himself in that position by trying to get involved and he himself was also on a bike! That's how he became a victim, so it was his own fault sort of speak! The SUV driver was protecting himself and his family, what was he supposed to do? Surrender with all those other bikes around him?

    I THINK THAT WE ALL TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO WATCH WHO WE OR WHO THEY ARE FRIENDS WITH! IF YOU GET INTO A CAR WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND DON'T KNOW WHO'S CAR IT IS THEY CAN BE CHARGED WITH ROBBERY. NOW, I KNOW I DID THIS, I TOLD MY SON WATCH WHO YOU RUN WITH BECAUSE AS Leslie Fernandes stated, "When you run with a pack of wild dogs you get fleas!"

    This is why I hate attorneys. This is so clear cut not the driver's fault and yet he is guilty of what? Leaving the scene of an accident, Gloria? Can we kill the lawyers?

    If someone is killed during the commission of a crime then all parties involved are responsible whether or not they did the actual killing. Even the get away driver, that never entered the bank where someone was killed during the robbery, is considered to be guilty of the murder. Why should this be any different. I feel sorry for the biker who is paralized. Especially if he was trying to difuse the situation. He was however a part of the group causing the problem and therefore not an innocent bystander. The driver of the SUV was trying to protect himself and his family. I would have done the same thing in this situation.

    She isn't interested in an innocent verdict. She's interested in a settlement with the city and police department. NYC loves to settle when faced with lawsuits that have no merit.

    Gloria will use her Bat Mistzah powers shabbot. She can spin, distort better than the beast. J(ews love these kinds of cases were they can play serpent.

    First, the bikers should not have been encirlcing the SUV. We have lines in the roads and safe minimum distances to follow.

    I can not wait to see how Gloria distorts this. This will be as good as John Kerry D-MA trying to convince the world to b-omb syria and then the world saying no.

    Gloria Allred should have looked at all of the videos before taking this case. One video shows the SUV being attacked after being forced to stop the first time and before Mieses was hit as the driver tried to get away from those who were attacking him, his wife, and his child. There were some 200 calls to 911 about the bikers and perhaps some of those were because of the things Mieses did himself since another previous video he was in showed him standing on the bike seat with the front tires in the air. You can not sue and recover damages when you are the one who put yourself in a position to be hurt or injured.

    a better case for this blood sucker of a lawyer would be
    the poor black chic who was shot to death in Washington
    even if it only took 100 shots to protect a president
    who was not even their, but she wont touch that
    old gloria is a left wing liberal

  12. Judy Berezansky

    Allred must have skipped over the first part of the video. The part that shows her "innocent" client actively participating in the boxing in of the SUV. Mieses sped up to the SUV on the passenger side then slowed so the SUV could not move to the right.

  13. Charles Walter Rudolph

    she is just another liberal fruitcake who is brain dead..

  14. Allen Wang

    She is taking this Case to boost her image, nothing more. She knows she will lose, but as a lawyer, as long as she takes up high profile cases she is considered a winner. No matter what the outcome is. So that could be why she took this job. Also, because the government (aka our tax dollars) are paying for this. She knows that she has a long case ahead of her and she can charge the government a ridiculous fee because the Mieses are too useless to pay for there own bills, so we have to pick it up for them. Just like how obamacare has to take care of his medical bills and now our tax dollars will have to take care of his sorry disabled ass.

    Certainly, all those other 'innocent' bikers will testify that the SUV driver started it, right? Sick thugs!
