QuoteJack Palladino, the flamboyant private investigator whose clients ranged from presidents and corporate whistleblowers to scandal-plagued celebrities, Hollywood moguls and sometimes suspected drug traffickers, died Monday. He was 76.
QuotePalladino suffered a devastating brain injury Thursday after a pair of would-be robbers tried to grab his camera outside his home in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. He held on to the camera but fell and struck his head, and the photos he took before his attackers fled were used by police to track down two suspects. They were charged with assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes.
Quote"He would have loved knowing that," his wife, Sandra Sutherland, told The Associated Press on Monday. She added that she had told her husband while he lay unconscious in the hospital: "Guess what, Jack, they got the bastards, and it was all your doing."
QuoteIn a career spanning more than 40 years, Palladino worked for a who's who of the famous and the sometimes infamous, alternately hailed as a hero or denounced as a villain, depending on who his client was at the time.
Quotealternately hailed as a hero or denounced as a villain
QuoteHe was hired by Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign to put a lid on women who were coming forward to claim they had had sex with the future president. [...] He was also the investigator for the family of a 14-year-old boy who won a multimillion-dollar settlement from Michael Jackson after accusing the entertainer of molesting him. Jackson was never charged with a crime in that case. [...] Their clients included everyone from the Black Panthers and Hells Angels to celebrities like Courtney Love, Robin Williams and Kevin Costner. They once recovered a truckload of stolen equipment for the Grateful Dead, and Palladino spent years investigating the mass suicide of the Jonestown cult in Guyana. [...] Some celebrity clients, like Williams and Costner, were the targets of fan or tabloid abuse. In Love's case, she was being linked to unfounded allegations that she played a role in the suicide of her husband, Kurt Cobain.
QuoteFor (John) DeLorean, he discovered that the former General Motors executive had been set up by authorities, who had charged him with trafficking millions of dollars in cocaine in what they said was a failed effort to prop up his failing DeLorean Motor Co. DeLorean was acquitted.
Quote"Jack was a pillar of the legal and professional community. He was a firm believer in due process, First Amendment rights, particularly freedom of speech and freedom of the press," Palladino's lawyer, Mel Honowitz, said in an emotional statement confirming Palladino's death.
QuoteAlthough he still took the occasional case, Palladino had largely retired a year ago, his wife said, adding that the two were looking forward to traveling and pursuing photography, which was a passion for both of them.
QuoteThe couple married in 1977, the same year they founded Palladino & Sutherland Investigations.
QuoteWhile many in their business keep a low profile, they did anything but. They publicly took on high-profile cases while the media sometimes compared them to Nick and Nora Charles, the fictional, wisecracking, high-society husband-and-wife detective team in the Dashiell Hammett potboiler, "The Thin Man."
Quote"I am somebody you call in when the house is on fire, not when there's smoke in the kitchen," Palladino told the San Francisco Examiner in 1999. "You ask me to deal with that fire, to save you, to do whatever has to be done to the fire - where did it come from, where is it going, is it ever going to happen again?"
QuoteOver the years, some people, including the women who brought accusations against Clinton, complained that Palladino sometimes threatened and harassed them, their families and friends.
QuoteAlthough he would acknowledge he wasn't afraid to What I wanted,ask tough questions, Palladino denied ever crossing the line either ethically or legally.All he was ever after was the truth, he said, adding that he was better at getting it than most other private eyes."I'm not a self-effacing individual," he told the Examiner. "I am a driven, arrogant person who holds himself and everyone around him to incredibly high standards."
QuoteJohn Arthur Palladino was born in Boston on July 9, 1944, the son of a pipe fitter.
Quotepassing the state Bar exam in 1978. But by then, he had already found that his true passion was investigations.
QuoteWhile still a student in 1971, he had himself incarcerated in New York's Nassau County as part of an undercover operation exposing rampant crime in the county's jails. In 1974, the family of newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst hired him to help investigate members of the Symbionese Liberation Army, the ragtag band of young revolutionaries that had kidnapped her.
Quote"I was planning to be a lawyer," he once told People magazine of his law school years. "I didn't know in those days that investigations would make everything else seem dull, unchallenging and uninvolving."

Quote from: pate on February 08, 2021, 08:57:21 AMI missed his passing by a few years apparently. Your "Harlan" reminded me of the bastige: Harlan Ellison.Always enjoyed his idea of "revenge": Send them enough bricks (post-paid) that theythe hobo elite could build a defensible position behind which to hide...Prosit, Harlan!
Quote from: Silphion on February 08, 2021, 06:19:17 PMEllison provided a description of himself and his writing: "My work is foursquare for chaos. I spend my life personally, and my work professionally, keeping the soup boiling. Gadfly is what they call you when you are no longer dangerous; I much prefer troublemaker, malcontent, desperado. I see myself as a combination of Zorro and Jiminy Cricket. My stories go out from here and raise hell. From time to time some denigrater or critic with umbrage will say of my work, 'He only wrote that to shock.' I smile and nod. Precisely."Practically a godfather of Gabdom.
