UPDATE "Haas v Romney" Racketeering: Judge Warns of Dismissal - But the Case Continues

Many have heard the old maxim about people representing themselves in court; but most aren't aware that it was Abraham Lincoln who is credited with the adage. During a case, the judge looked at Mr. Lincoln and said

"Why do you have an attorney - you're one of the most brilliant lawyers known"?

and Honest Abe responded

"He who represents himself - has a fool for a client".

[br][hr][br]

Ladies and gentlemen, I present myself to you - The Fool Laser Haas!

[br]

Beyond a shadow of any doubt, trying to bring the likes of Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, Mitt Romney and his gang to justice - is daunting. Especially when you are an insignificant plaintiff such as I am. It is obvious that I'm in way over my head. Yours truly may be a great Liquidator; but I'm a horrific litigator. Such is evident by the fact that our case has an abundance of proof; but heretofore - even with confessions of perjury acts - I've been unable to bring Romney's stalwarts to justice.

Be that as it may, it is better to be joked at, trolled upon, (even banned from the orange realm for fighting the ad hominem attackers too much). Instead of becoming a coward and walking away from the Civil War; simply because it is too hard to win. I can live with others looking down upon me, as such is basically the story of my life anyway. I've always been frowned upon as being from the wrong side of the tracks and a joke (in certain communities); because my mom married a 17 year old when I was 12 and a 19 year old when I was almost 18. But I can't live with myself, if I permit these bandits to get away with it all, simply because I'm doing it alone and most people don't like me and don't care. Of all the persons to do this effort against the likes of Mitt Romney & his RICO gang - I'm the least likely that anyone would pick.

But here I am!




The fact of the matter remains is that "someone" must try to stop the powerful bad guys from doing organized crimes against regular citizens. Romney "Busts Out" companies - doing so illegally! It simply ain't right that they can Break the Law openly - and get away with it. And yet, that's exactly what is going on. They are breaking the law openly; and they are encouraged to do so even more - simply because no one seems to care.

Others enlightened me that racketeering litigation it is exactly the correct LEGAL Way to stop the Law Breakers efforts in organized crimes. At the same time, while studying RICO, others (purportedly) were enlightening me on how to do it right. Explain in detail they said. But they are totally WRONG!

I chose the RICO Act of 1970; because this case is the poster child of what RICO is about. When our government refuses to do its job, Congress provided that ordinary citizens (such as I) can become "Private Attorney Generals" - as is iterated upon Wikipedia's website (here) about this RICO "Prosecutorial Gap"- that;

Another example of the "private attorney general" provisions is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). RICO allows average citizens (private attorneys general) to sue those organizations that commit mail and wire fraud as part of their criminal enterprise

[br]

Unfortunately, I may have hit a huge bump in the road.

About 2 weeks ago, after being educated by those that I thought were "helping" me to be a better litigator; and "foolishly" listening to the banter of the trolls - I submitted a mini War n Peace 350 page pleading. Doing so in an effort to prove my case in the beginning (and - quite frankly - if I got shot by my enemies, the evidences were already in the record). Well, the judge wasn't too happy with my effort and lambasted my works.

Turns out - I'm blessed by heaven above. My timeline for serving the opponents was drawing near to an end (case began October 18, 2013 - and I have 120 days from that time). It was my intent to file the case in New York (and pray to get Judge Rakoff) and/or Washington D.C. Then G-d provided a blessing from above and I was cajoled to do it in Southern California. Everyone said this was nuts; and many laughed when the "Wheel of Assignment" slotted my case to His Honor Stephen V. Wilson (nominated by Reagan 24 years ago). Just this past week, yours truly went to watch the court in action. When His Honor complimented attorneys for 3 and 5 word sentences and kept holding up his hand to stop opposing parties from going on and on - I KNEW I was in deep pooh.

So I began to serve notice upon the opposing parties;
being fully aware that the Judge would Deny my request.
[br][hr][br]

Judge Stephen V Wilson DENIES Laser Haas's Request and Warns of Dismissal


It is not as bad as it may look, the dismissal thingy; because we have not (yet) had a trial (adjudication upon the merits). The Law (as His Honor has pointed out) stipulates that a case must be dismissed - WithOut Prejudice - when a plaintiff fails to present a case properly. Without prejudice means one can refile; but I'm going to have to pay $455.00 again (may as well ask me to pay $4 million - I simply don't have the monies at this time).

However, the "Haas v Romney" Case is NOT yet closed.


No matter what all the mistakes are, the fact of the matter remains is that yours truly (as a matter of law) has a "prima facie" case; because Romney's attorneys have already CONFESSED lying under oath. But Romney owns a United States Attorney. Mitt's MNAT law firm arranged for their partner Connolly - to become the federal prosecutor over the case.

And that ain't right!



As is iterated by the court, in its Order (in Chambers) Denying my Requests, I've got 120 days to serve the parties. Now, if the court wanted to make sure the case was off its docket - then all His Honor had to do was wait until Tuesday to respond. This would have been beyond my 120 day deadline; and dismissal would be proper. Instead, not only has this court allowed the case to stay open for 120 days now; but it has also provided guidelines on where I'm remiss in my duty to bring the case to federal court. As you can see by the court's order (here) that states;

Plaintiff also asks the Court to grant a sixty day extension for service of his complaint. Federal
Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m) provides: “If a defendant is not served within 120 days after the complaint
is filed, the court . . . must dismiss the action without prejudice against that defendant . . . {b}ut if the
plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, the court must extend the time for service for an appropriate
period.” Good cause requires “a demonstration of good faith on the part of the party seeking an
enlargement and some reasonable basis for noncompliance within the time specified in the rules.” MCI
Telecommunications Corp. v. Teleconcepts, Inc., 71 F.3d 1086, 1097 (3d Cir. 1995) (emphasis added).
Whether a plaintiff has failed to “diligently pursue service during the allotted period” is a consideration
in the good cause determination. Cardenas v. City of Chicago, 646 F.3d 1001, 1007 (7th Cir. 2011).
Plaintiff’s application and the exhibits in support thereof fail to show that he has diligently pursued
service since filing his original complaint and the FAC, and fails to provide any reasonable basis for
excusing compliance with the 120-day requirement under Rule 4(m).

[br][hr][br]



Defendants HAVE Been Served a copy of the Complaint, Summons and New Case Order

[br]

- - Fortunately, due to the G-dsend of going to the court and watching His Honor in action, I became aware - Then - that yours truly was in deep pooh. Almost immediately, we began to serve the Complaint upon the opposing parties (all over the country). It's not easy, because Traub and Barry Gold are no where to be found; and Goldman Sachs/Bain Capital actually Do NOT have any Registered Agents with the Secretary of State. So we had to get sneaky to outwit the snakes.

We can't put the items into the record until Tuesday; because the courts are closed on Monday (due to the President's Day holiday). However, at that time, we are going to supply the court clerk with the Proofs of Service Declarations.

Such as Michael Glazer's (here)

and

Bain Capital's (here).
[br][hr][br]
PLaintiff has "matter of course" right to file Amended Complaint


This is very important. The court categorized my previous filings as items that would be dismissed under Fed.R.Civ.P (8) - as being too long winded; and not concise/precise. The court also stipulates that "as a matter of course" a plaintiff can file an amended complaint. As iterated by His Honor's Order that;

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a) permits a party to amend a pleading “once as a matter of course” within 21 days of serving it (or defendants’ filing of certain motions or responsive pleadings).


Because His Honor labeled my prior submissions as "pre-service amendments" and has NOT stated that I'm forbidden to file anything further; hence this plaintiff has his "matter of course" ability to file an amended complaint within 21 days of Service.

Now, if I can just become something other than a fool and find a way to tell the story in 50 pages or less. Then, we just "may" have a chance of compelling Romney and his RICO gang - into responding.

Wouldn't that be something?

Romney Ponders 2016: Beaning RICO RMoney Videos on What Mitt Stands For

Yours truly sued Mitt (the Pitt's) Romney for Racketeering (Civil RICO) - on October 18, 2014. This week I asked the court (begged actually) that it grant me permission to file a 2nd Amended Complaint (because someone instructed me wrong heretofore). Come Tuesday, I'm either serving Mitt with the 1st Amended Complaint - or, if the judge gives me permission by then - the 2nd Amended Complaint. Either way, things are going to get awful hot around here; so I'm attempting to cool it down with a little humor.

We'll begin with reminding you who Mitt Romney really is.

This is a LONG one - Newt Gingrich's "KING of BAIN" documentary.

HOWEVER - Please NOTE: - the film was funded by Sheldon Adelson;
and introduced by a Romney former aide Perry and from Mr. Bennett.

IT IS A "Red Herring" (doesn't tell 1/100th of the true Romney Racketeering story)

Mitt Romney Your So BAIN~

The Christie-gate thingy forgotten; Bribery - by any other name - Still the same!

Many pick on Chris Christie for being a "different" type of politician. Hell, even yours truly (at rare times) likes what the guy does (such as walking with President Obama). But the fact of the matter is, Chris Christie is a schemer of major proportions; and that's why the GOP helped make a former U.S. Attorney into a Governor.

Did you know that Chris Christie was a former U.S. Attorney who was doing such a good job of prosecuting Democrats (even before some won their election) that - where Alberto Gonzales fired 8 - Chris Christie was the one "good ole boy" setting the standard for what GWB & Karl Rove wanted from "their" prosecution/US Attorney guys?

In 2007, Christie-gate happened in a coup d'etat of sorts - that lame stream media barely even mentioned. You can read all about (some) of Chris Christie's bad faith schemes in the book "Chris-Christie-The-Inside-Story-of-His-Rise-to-Power". What is real noteworthy thereof. is the fact that GWB's Gonzales fired 8 U.S. Attorneys for refusing to use their office as a political hack machine; whilst Chris Christie was hacking away at Democrat candidates (like Senator Menedez).
[br][hr][br]

But the real kicker is Christie's $50 million Pay Off to former USAG John Aschroft


Former United States Attorney General John Ashcroft had, upon a time, did some noble things. When Gonzales and others visited him in the hospital, trying to compel his getting on board with torture and surveillance programs - John Ashcroft said NO! A couple of times, USAG Ashcroft spoke out to the Hague Global Forum on Corruption; and said that we must keep our own houses in order. Former USAG Ashcroft is also credited with saying the following. As is documented by sworn testimony of Francis C P Knize during the Public comments on RULES GOVERNING JUDICIAL CONDUCT AND DISABILITY PROCEEDINGS UNDERTAKEN PURSUANT TO 28 U.S.C. §§ 351-364 Presented Pursuant [FR Doc. E7-14268 Filed 7-20-07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 2210-55-P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE United States Parole Commission Public Announcement, Pursuant to the Government in the Sunshine Act (Pub. L. 94-409) [5 U.S.C. Section 552b]

To wit - Francis C P Knize stated that USAG Ashcroft wrote to the Hague stating;

"Bankruptcy court corruption is not just a matter of bankruptcy trustees in collusion with corrupt bankruptcy judges. The corruption is supported, and justice hindered by high ranking officials in the United States Trustee Program. The corruption has advanced to punishing any and all who mention the criminal acts of trustees and organized crime operating through the United States Bankruptcy Courts. As though greed is not enough, the trustees, in collusion with others, intentionally go forth to destroy lives. Exemptions provided by law are denied debtors. Cases are intentionally, and unreasonably kept open for years. Parties in cases are sanctioned to discourage them from pursuing justice. Contempt of court powers are misused to coerce litigants into agreeing with extortion demands. This does not ensure integrity and restore public confidence.

The American public, victimized and held hostage by bankruptcy court corruption,

have no where to turn".

emphasis added
[br]
I won't go into how those remarks were going to hurt Mitt Romney; but it became a VERY big deal that John Ashcroft is quoted about these remarks. So "something" had to be done. Simply yanking them down wouldn't do (as yours truly had replastered them everywhere). The source of the remarks had to have his silence guaranteed forevermore. That is when Chris Christie comes to the rescue and pulls his coup d'etat.
[br]
$50 Million Dollar Inducement of Former USAG John Ashcroft.

One thing we simply can't have, is our federal judges and/or prosecutors even appear to/perceived to be motivated to prosecute - and/or - forgo prosecutions; because of issues of rewards.

It just ain't right!

But that issue of Conflicts of Interests didn't stop Chris Christie; because he had a 2-fer in the works. He was told that he would be greatly rewarded, if he could find a way, to help keep Ashcroft at bay. That's when Chris Christie gave his former boss (U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft) - a $50 Million Dollar DPA (Deferred Prosecution Agreement) to avoid prosecuting Zimmer Holdings (NOTE: have no idea if - whether or not - Mayor Zimmer is related to Zimmer Holdings; they appear to be 2 different nationalities). (SEE Wikipedia notes on case - here).

This is a Christie-gate issue that never gets spoken about; but is most certainly noteworthy. No matter how you slice it or dice it, the facts loom large. US Attorney Chris Christie gave his former boss a $50 million dollar NO Bid contract to guarantee no prosecution of Zimmer Holdings.

What do you call it when a former federal prosecutor gets;
$50 million payment to guarantee that a certain party won't be prosecuted?

It's a crony Bribe!


----------------------As a result, John Ashcroft now runs Academi (the new name for Blackwater).

And Chris Christie got to be Gov!

Romney Flip Flops on 2016. Only a matter of time till he's says "Okay - if you insist"!

Christie's [should be] going down, Jeb Bush is hanging around and Ann Romney's being a prime time clown. Have you seen the sneak peeks and hints that Mitt (the "Pitt's" Romney may run again, for President of the United States - in 2016?

WTF!


POLITICO asks the Romney question.

I kid you not. Inside Politico's story "Who will run in 2016; ask Dr. Politics" - it states of Romney that:

Dear Dr. Politics: Rumors keep circulating that Mitt Romney is considering another run for the presidency. A new documentary has humanized him. A new poll shows he is leading the Republican pack in New Hampshire. And one website says a lot of Republican donors are saying, “I think we need Mitt back.” Is this for real?

[br]

WaPo also posses the Romney 2016 question.


- - In Washington Post's story "Christie & Romney: the GOP Odd Couple" - WaPo's Dan Balz banters the following remarks;

The warmer Romney seen in the documentary has sparked surprising talk about a possible 2016 presidential run. Romney has been firm in his rejection every time the subject has been mentioned. Still, the chatter continues.

[br]
Then, the story continues that;
[br]

Some Republicans are still rankled by what Christie did that week, which is why there are suggestions that some of the people in Romney’s campaign have taken particular pleasure in seeing Christie brought down a few notches.

Not Romney, however. He has enjoyed a good relationship with Christie despite all, his advisers say. He has been staunch in his support of Christie since the scandal erupted, just as he defended Christie’s actions after the hurricane.

[br][hr][br]

Now there's stories by The Christian Science Monitor "Why all the buzz about Romney 2016 - with a video (here). The National Journal points out (here) that Romney is a huge front runner (currently) in New Hampshire. (Yours truly would like to point out that Romney admits he "stole" the Republican Party's nomination).

Then there's this one by the Congressional Media outlet "The HILL" where it remarks that (dear ole sweet, more likeable) Mitt Romney suggests we need a female POTUS. So Pitten's is proffering New Mexico's Governor Martinez as a possible candidate (Hillary v Martinez - NOW that would be something - where many a man would wind up on the couch for months; because he backed the wrong gal). (See The Hill's article - here).

What remains a fact is, Mitt is a flip flopper extraordinaire.


We don't know if the GOP/Rove clickers are playing U.S. to keep everyone away from Jeb until the proper time. Or if they are just trying to tone down the Christie banter (TRUST ME - the Right Wing wants the ganef Chris Christie in there helping all of them loot; where Romney would just help "his" people loot). Whatever the game is, I'm scared crapless. Here we are, in day 111 - of my suing Romney for Racketeering; but that case is not even being mentioned by main (lame) stream. Romney believes everyone has forgotten he simply doesn't care about middle America; and that he is a pathological liar extraordinaire.

As for me, I like the picture below (see the video at Fox News - here) - it is telltale of the real quirky Mitt;
and as for Ann - please don't get me started?

Just remember - if we're not careful - Racketeering Romney can become the boss of bosses! There's NO Reasonable Doubt that Romney lied to the entire country about his tenure as CEO of Bain Capital; and that he did so on his Fed Election Campaign Finance OGE 278 Form (see my other Thread - "UPDATE - Haas v Romney Racketeering Litigation - Day 110".

PLEASE help me spread the FACTS about the true Mitt Romney;
so that he doesn't get to ride a White Horse into the White House/

UPDATE: Laser "Haas v Romney" Racketeer - Emergency - File 2nd Amended Complaint

We are 110 days into my lawsuit against Romney & his RICO gang.


On October 18, 2013, yours truly sued Mitt Romney, Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs and cohorts (such as Paul Traub) for Racketeering - in Los Angeles Division of Federal District Court. There are several stories out there and a cheap video. Please see (here) - (here) - (here) - and video link (here).

A new case order was issued and then several events happened. We had a victory of one reporter who was punished to the tune of $2 million, for reporting crimes; and failing to handle the issue correctly. Crystal Cox won a reversal (that a Blogger is entitled to "Freedom of the Press" protection). Then, in another case we were working on (brutal - Fullerton Police Beating -) of homeless man Kelly Thomas; the jury ruled that 6 cops, tazing a 150lb guy (NOT on drugs) until the battery ran out and then turning the tazer over and beating him brain dead; was not unnessary use of force.

So, I've been somewhat despondent for a few weeks.

Getting back to Romney the Racketeer, most people misunderstand RICO and think that ONLY the Department of Justice can prosecute bad guys under the RICO Act of 1970. Actually it's the other way around. The DOJ is forbidden by law to prosecute Civil RICO under a specific provision of Racketeering as per 18 U.S.C. $ 1964(c). Whereas, the law is - you and I, Mr. & Mrs. Ordinary Gals/Guys, are the one's who can prosecute organized criminals under RICO section 1964(c). (See Wikipedia - here). Specifically, if your state and/or federal government are "bought off" and/or "willfully blind" to systematic organized crimes; then you and I may become "Private Attorney Generals".

That's what I am in this "Haas v Romney" case - a "Private Attorney General".
[br][hr][br]

ROMNEY the RACKETEER - Story - In a Nutshell




What happened is Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, Mitt Romney and their lawyers (Paul Traub & www.MNAT.com) have been engaging in Racketeering for decades. (See the pic above, showing that there's NO 6 degrees of separation; because Romney is directly linked to all of it. Including Marc Dreier fraud, Stanford (through son Tagg Romney) and Tom Petters Ponzi.

These Racketeers have been able to get away with it; because Romney's "retroactive" time span is directly tied to the former Wilmington, DE United States Attorney. In 1999 - thru 2001 - there were organized crimes committed against The Learning Co, Stage Stores, Kay Bee and eToys between 1999 and August 2001. Billions was stolen; but NO prosecution occurred.

That is because Romney possessed his very own U.S. Attorney (Colm Connolly).


Yours truly didn't learn about the federal corruption - until 2007 - and reported it (see my time stamped/clocked copy - here). Inexplicably and intolerably, in March 2008 (when the answer from the DOJ was due); the Public Corruption Task Force was SHUT DOWN; and career federal prosecutors were threatened to keep their mouths shut!

SEE the Los Angeles Times March 2008 story "Shake-up roils federal prosecutors" - here).

When you have federal prosecutors being corrupt - that creates "Prosecutorial GAPS";
which can be filled in by a "Private Attorney General"!

That's Me!


[br][hr][br]

BRAND NEW = EMERGENCY = Filing by yours truly.

I'm asking the court (here) for EMERGENCY permission (as a "pro se" Private Attorney General) - to file a 2nd Amended Complaint.

This judge has been more than fair (even though I'm using terms like federal corruption that NO attorney would usually utilize). It is customary to allow several "Amended Complaints" and "pro se" parties are supposed to be give "some" latitude (as long as you are NOT wasting the courts time).

Will let you know what the court says - by Monday!

Meanwhile, you should read this Emergency Request (here) and look at the 8 exhibits at the end?

All my proof of crimes are federal court records;
and federal archives undeniable!

Jonathan Turley Gets Snotty Concerning Casino's Super Bowl Ad

Maybe some of you in Georgia and elsewhere were able to see the applauded Super Bowl ad of accident attorney Jamie Casino. He was defending his murdered brother and a girl friend; while at the same time touting his advocacy (now) for the little guy. Professor Jonathan Turley took issue with that; and yours truly takes issue with Professor Turley.

Jamie's brother - Michael Biancosino - was gunned down in his car on Labor day in 2012. What irked attorney at law Jamie Casino, is the fact that the Chief of Police (Willie Lovett) disparagingly remarked that;

"there were no innocent victims"


This inference by the Police Chief that Jamies brother did something wrong - really pissed off Jamie Casino. Instead of suing the Police Chief (who has since retired as of October due to sexual harassment allegations); Mr. Casino bought and placed the following Super Bowl ad to clear his brother's name and tout his business:


[br]
[hr][br]

Now, please don't get me wrong - I like Professor Jonathan Turley and admire his works; but (of late) he has gotten somewhat full of himself. To bark and rant to your following about someone being too full of themselves as a distasteful attorney at law who charges for his "super hero" works - while you are a purported super hero attorney who is obviously well funded and liked in Washington D.C. -

Seems Smug - like the pot calling the kettle black - to me.

What you haven't seen, is that there are underground wars about censorship and other such stuff by the Professor, as of late. Including an open invitation for a comment party to go somewhere else. His censorship (when his blog is about the 1st Amendment) has caused others - significant - to go away.

I too, am pissed about other issues with the Professor - and figured I rant back and see how he likes it.

What do you think - is Mr. Casino's ad really that bad?

As for me - I like it!

Banks Accused of Aiding Petters Ponzi

Source: Courthouse News

(CN) - J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America and other major aided and abetted Thomas Petters' $3.7 billion Ponzi scheme - the third-largest Ponzi in U.S. history - six hedge funds claim in a notice and summons in New York County Supreme Court.

Lead plaintiff Ritchie Capital Management and five other hedge funds claim they lost $177 million in the Ponzi. They put two dozen major banks on notice in the brief summons.

The 1-page notice lays out the Petters Ponzi scam, and the banks' alleged involvement in it.

Ritchie claims all of the defendants were part of a syndicate of lenders, "arranged by J.P. Morgan Securities, Inc., that agreed to a $250 million revolving credit facility for the Petters-owned and controlled Polaroid, [which] fraudulently conveyed $43 million between February 3 and February 18, 2008, all of which was proceeds of plaintiff's loans to Petters, after defendants knew that Petters and his entities, including Polaroid, were insolvent and/or not able to pay their debts."

There are many shenanigans concerning Tom Petters Ponzi;
including the fact that Mitt Romney is benefiting from the federal corruption.

See my websites on the background issues - (here) (here) and (here)

As you can see in the pic above, Romney is connected (almost directly); to a whole lot of fraudsters and federal corrupt parties. That's Paul Traub below left with Marc Dreier and then Tom Petters by himself (arms folded)

Please Stay Tuned - MUCH More to come!

BREAKING: 9th Circuit Rules Bloggers Get Press Protection - The Crystal Cox Story!

Source: Reuters

A blogger is entitled to the same free speech protections as a traditional journalist and cannot be liable for defamation unless she acted negligently, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday.




the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said Cox deserved a new trial, regardless of the fact that she is not a traditional reporter.

Cox wrote a series of blog posts, including one that accused Padrick of tax fraud in failing to pay $174,000 in taxes owed by Summit. U.S. District Judge Marco Hernandez in Oregon rejected Cox's First Amendment defenses, and a jury awarded Padrick and Obsidian a combined $2.5 million.

However, the 9th Circuit found that the tax fraud allegations were a matter of public concern, which means Obsidian had to show evidence of Cox's negligent behavior.

Previously, yours truly has benefited from the good faith works of Blogger Crystal Cox, who has helped get the word out concerning federal bankruptcy fraud and corruption. Crystal has reported much on this plaintiff's saga around the eToys bankruptcy case, corrupt US Attorney Colm Connolly, who was secretly a Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital law firm (www.MNAT.com) attorney from 1999 to 2001 (the very time Mitt Romney claims to be "retroactively" retired from Bain Capital.

Crystal Cox was abused by the rich and powerful and was burdened with $2 million lawsuit loss.

What the Court over Crystal Cox said, is that she wasn't entitle to the same freedom of the press protections; because she was a blogger - and Bloggers aren't the same as main stream media. But the 9th Circuit says this is not correct and has overturned the decision - as to the part that Bloggers don't get freedom of the press protections.

I've got a previous thread here at DU - I'll find later;
meanwhile - here's the story from my DailyKos article in 2011.
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/12/26/1049055/-Volokh-Goes-pro-bono-for-Crystal-Cox#

Most of us are now aware that an Oregon Judge purportedly drew a line in the sand between "journalist" and "blogger" - in the $2.5 million dollar award against self proclaimed "Investigative Journalist" Crystal Cox. (See Seattle Times story (here)). While there are vast arguments about what Crystal Cox did or did not do - a noteworthy team has magnamously stepped forward and volunteered to defend her case (and thus BLOG lines too). KUDOs much to that of UCLA Professor Volokh (of the Volokh Conspiracy BLOG) and his affiliated local counsel, Benjamin Souede of Angeli Law Group LLC.

[br]

You can see Volokh's public announce of December 23, 2003, as it best details the issue far beyond the petty remarks, snipes, banter, hyperbole and purported unbiased criticisms of Crystal Cox for being a bad writer - etc. Aptly framed to be a story in point Professor Volokh entitled the announcing;

"New Pro Bono Case on Whether First Amendment Libel Rules are Limited to Institutional Media Defendants"

and Professor Eugene Volokh states the "real" case on point in 1 paragraph;

Gertz v. Robert Welch, Inc. (1974) held that even private-figure libel plaintiffs (1) may not recover proven compensatory damages unless the defendant was at least negligent in its investigation, and (2) may not recover presumed or punitive damages unless the defendant knew the statement was false or recklessly disregarded a known and substantial risk that the statements were false. The District Court in Obsidian Finance held that the defendant was not entitled to the protection of Gertz, because she was not a member of the “media.” But as I’ve argued in my forthcoming University of Pennsylvania Law Review article, Freedom for the Press as an Industry, or for the Press as a Technology? From the Framing to Today, the First Amendment has historically been understood as protecting people who use mass communications technology equally, whether or not they are members of the institutional media. I much look forward to litigating this case, and, I hope, getting the District Court decision reversed.

freshwest - I actually appreciate your candor and applaud your research/insights

This case is not about victim Laser Haas versus Mitt Romney;
it is germane to the issues of WSJ slaughtering U.S. citizenry without remorse or relent.

We are in a Civil War;
but no one really cares about dollar bullets.

Until one's life savings are ALL GONE!

Romney IS the boss in this case and has benefited (indirectly and Directly) from the organized crimes.

We've already done that - because Pitten's - Didn't Make It!
