Protest!

Just because I am not posting much does not mean that all is quiet. More likely it means I am too busy to post very often.

The latest news is from my daughter. My wife and I paid a lawyer in LA to seek a protective order to limit her deposition. Judge March limited it to one hour and sanctioned the scientologists $1000 "sue sponte." She also made comments to the effect of having never seen a bankruptcy of even a major international company which had a 34 page docket sheet or this many hours of deposition. Of course, Helena Kobrin appealed the limit and the sanctions. The lawyer we were using has decided she no longer wants to be involved, so the papers Helena filed got shipped to us--nearly a half inch thick brief to the district court and a 1.5 inch thick stack of pages pulled out of the court documents and deposition transcripts.

If anyone knows a lawyer in the LA area who would like to take on a scientology case, my daughter could really use pro bono or reduced fees representation. So far we have spent as much as half a year of college for her legal representation.

Speaking about abuse of process, I filed a complaint with the New York Bar about Rosen. I may post it here eventually, but for now, if you are known to me just ask for a copy by email.

My trial in Hemet on "misdemeanor terrorism" starts a week from next Monday, assuming it is not overtaken by other events.

Which reminds me--from http://caag.state.ca.us/piu/da.htm,

"Complaints against District Attorneys are, in certain specified situations, handled directly by the Office of the Attorney General. However, the Attorney General's intervention is appropriate only where there is a demonstrated conflict of interest which would disqualify the district attorney from a particular case.

**********

"Also, if there is an obvious abuse of the district attorney's legal discretion in the decision whether to file a criminal charge, the Attorney General may intervene." ******************************

There is the statement of Deputy Tony Greer,

"In reviewing all of the Internet postings I did not see any direct threat of violence towards the church or any personnel of the church."

Combined with my First Amendment protected activity of picketing gold base (and being arrested while picketing) makes the actions of the Hemet DAs look a lot like an "obvious abuse of the district attorney's legal discretion" and an attempt to violate my right to peacefully protest the vicious abuses of scientology. (Including two deaths at gold last year.)

I don't know if is any truth to vague rumors about Judge Rodney L. Walker talking to the the AG's office, but there does seem to be darn good cause if he has asked them to check out this case.

Of course, it would not hurt a bit for others to contact the California AG, especially Californians who can go through their elected representaive and have them suggest to the AG that he take a look at the Deputy DAs in Hemet and this case.

You can email right out of the form here http://caag.state.ca.us/piu/

Thanks to any who do. I would appreciate your making a copy and posting it on ars.

PS, For those in the know, a really good video is rapidly making the rounds in a certain California city. Details later or by email.
