Filed a “Petition for Review” with the Appeals Court: petition PDF in the following folder. Let’s see where this takes us. One recurring theme I am hearing from some people familiar with our court system is that lower courts are often disgustingly political in their behavior. That is, people do each other “favors” and, as judges are former lawyers, everyone knows each other. That explains why, when talking to several attorneys, the conversation sometimes goes something like:

Court Update: Entry of Default DENIED
So, finally some good news. After my motion for reconsideration (Paper #81, Blog Post), Court clarified that Award of Default is Denied (Court Order), and that the clerk is ordered to not accept papers (a gag order? really?). Interestingly enough, Judge Curran followed up with an order to strike my motion for reconsideration (Paper #82). Continue reading

Update: Moshe and Klaus won’t tell me how much they’ve paid themselves…
So I recently made a request to see how much Moshe and Klaus paid themselves since our conflict started. I’ve served them the motion to compel, and today I received this response (PDF). Love it.
Let’s see how our judicial system will handle this.
Updates and a New Addition to My Defense: The Legal Defense Card!
So, some updates and then my new “Legal Defense Card”:
P#74 – I was allowed to modify my response to counterclaim by a new Judge Angel Kelley-Brown
P#75 – Motion to Strike Affidavits was denied, also by Judge Angel Kelley-Brown. My objection is on the record and can now be referenced, so that’s good. And now affidavits are out in the open and not just in front of a judge, which will make it unlikely that Continue reading
