...just a bit of background on Ty Cobb, from his firm's website:

Bet-the-company litigation calls for a unique combination of skills, experience, and track record. Ty Cobb, a long-time leader at Hogan Lovells, has been widely recognized as one of the premier white collar, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement, and congressional investigations lawyers in the world. Clients managing crises, allegations of corruption, and other critical matters turn to Ty to guide them.

In 2015, Super Lawyers magazine, in the featured article "The Kansas Peach," observed that Ty is "the big gun on whom powerful people rely. 'Ty Cobb gets results the old-fashioned way,' says Robert Weber, former general counsel for IBM. 'He gets his fingernails dirty doing the hard work, he is relentless and he deeply cares about his client. Plus, he's afraid of nothing.'" As Chambers & Partnersnotes, Ty is "tremendously responsive" with "phenomenal trial lawyer instinct."

A former federal prosecutor, Ty is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and is regularly profiled in Best Lawyers in America, Who's Who in the World, International Who's Who of Business Crime Lawyers, and Super Lawyers. In April 2016, he was again recognized by Lawdragon as one of the "500 Leading Lawyers in America." Also in 2016, Super Lawyers again honored him as one of the top 100 lawyers in Washington, D.C. Ty was an early inductee in the Ethisphere Hall of Fame, which recognizes those who have helped to advance corporate ethics and compliance.

1. The original Ty Cobb was a famous baseball player - one of the best ever.

A lawyer as good as the old Ty Cobb was as a baseball player will be needed to save any of these scumbags.

2. The original Ty Cobb was also a fierce racist and segregationalist. A

A man quick to drop the "N" word. A real piece of shit.

3. Yes, he was - as were many in his day, unfortunately.

Nevertheless, he was unquestionably one of the greatest of the old ballplayers. I just read that the lawyer Ty Cobb is some kind of relative of his.

4. He also had a nasty habit of spiking opposing players.

I haven't heard of the current version doing this in the courtroom, but it never hurts to be aware.

7. He also hated the Irish.

Yet he drank in bars with my grandfather (and Tony Galento).

8. He hated just about everyone who was not his exact nationality

A sad pathetic human being. If he was a player today, the Mendoza Line would be called the Cobb Line. A guy who can't hit shit. The guy might be able to play today for the Bridgeport Bluefish or Dayton Dragons, but that would be about it. Chances are he would just be another thug with a prison record.

9. Ty Cobb Resigns from Hogan Lovells To Join Trump Legal Team

Hogan is the firm that is kicking butt in the Hawaii Muslim Ban case and so Ty had resigned https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ty-cobb-resigns-hogan-lovells-090629122.html

Ty Cobb, a longtime Hogan Lovells partner based in Washington, D.C., has joined President Donald Trump's legal team as special counsel. His last day at Hogan Lovells will be July 30, the firm's chairman said in an all-firm email sent Friday afternoon.

The White House had not officially announced the appointment as of late Friday afternoon, and several leaders and a spokesman for Hogan Lovells did not respond to requests for comment. Cobb's email was set to an out-of-office auto reply Friday, saying he's currently on travel.

The National Law Journal obtained a copy of the email written by Hogan Lovells chair Stephen Immelt announcing Cobb's departure from the firm and confirmed his move with two other sources.

Bloomberg News, which first reported Cobb's hire, said he would serve as traffic cop, enforcer of discipline and public spokesman for the president's legal team as it grapples with simultaneous congressional and Justice Department investigations into the Trump campaign's Russia contacts, which are consuming the president's politics more every day.
