    It is amazing that they can find even 1% to favor such a proposal. The reality is that probably in a poll asking if a death panel should be created to prevent grandma from collecting any social security or medicare that 20-25% would say yes. So I assume that when a stupid poll like this comes up with 30% or so approval that means there is no support.

  • Thanks for the encouragement. I won’t give up until the appellate courts diss me.

  • I have yet to lose a case where I made a mistake such as timely filing, failing to file a claim under the state tort claims act or any other “mistake”. The major problem I have had is that judges make law up where it does not exist. For instance a federal judge determined a non-profit corporation was entitled to the benefits of the state tort claims act when there was no question the non-profit was not a municipality. And the appellate court simply refused to review the issue. I am not an expert but I make damn sure I don’t make stupid mistakes. Judges hate pro se litigants and will do everything in their power to deny pro se’s any relief. Too bad but that is the way it is.

  • Morals and integrity are essential and never to be lost. Those are two things they can’t take from you.

  • I can certainly relate to you Roy. I have seen so much corruption in the federal court system and state courts that it is a real eye-opener. The problem is that you always get labeled as a sore loser. I am anything but a sore loser but I hate losing when it is corruption at work.

  • Thanks for your reply. One advantage you have is that you are a member of the bar and I am not. Even though I am an experieced litigator, both trial and appellate, I am at a serious disadvantage being pro se. I worked in the law for over 30 years, but not as an attorney, but often doing the work of an attorney (for attorneys) and the only thing I needed to do was become familar with procedures, statutes and case law. Judges are hostile to me especially being competent, but a non-lawyer even though my cases are always well supported with both the facts and the law. Being a whistleblower is a very difficult proposition under any set of circumstances and is frequently, if not always, met with retalitation. Two years ago one of the persons I was attempting to expose tried to burn down my home….with me in it. I could not even get the authorities to investigate even though the crime was reported to the state police by a deputy state attorney general. Amazing.

  • Your situation is very near to one of my whistleblowing episodes. It also was community where the most powerful member had commited federal grant fraud on a community project. I got up in front of the community members and laid out the explicit proof and I was practically booed out of the room. The guy even admitted the crime but the people did not care. So I sued because the fellow had used me unknowlingly to perpatrate the fraud. The judge moved to protect the criminal.

  • I am a Whistleblower. I have reported serious criminal activity to various law enforcement and/or bar assoications where it involved attorneys. I am experienced at evidence and always presented crediable evidence in a form that was simple. I have never been successful in the enforement agencies investigating. They do take affirmative action to cover up the criminal activity. But, almost without exception the person or persons I was reporting were powerful. I have also found that judges hate people who blow the whistle on powerful people. I think it is great that you are part of an organization that assists whistleblowers. Being a whistleblower is a thankless task.

    I have also been wondering what happened to Rayne. She is a no bullshit editor who was doing an excellant job. Anyone who has been around editors would understand that to be a quality editor you need a spine made of solid steel, of which Rayne had/has. An explanation as to her absence here would [...]

  • Very well said. You should be awarded a peace prize for this.

    Like many states California suffers from too many Superior Court and Appellate judges having been appointed by Republican governors. With the exception of Brown I and the short term of Gray Davis there have been Republican governors in California for the last thirty or more years. The California Judicial system is truly fucked beyond belief.

    This case was actually decided on 2/18/11. I came across the case on 3/10. I used to know two of the judges on the panel. One, Nares has been around forever and is a very good appellate judge. McIntyre is a former insurance defense attorney. I don’t have any idea how he is faring on [...]

    “IMO most Ins Companies are criminal rackets, esp these days. But I do believe AIG can be singled out for some specific notice.”

    I agree. I am of the opinion that the criminal racket started with AIG and soon thereafter was taken up by other insurers in order to keep up. I first came across the beginning of the rackets in 1984. My first exposure was with the Travelers. In 1985 I discovered that AIG had actually started their major activities around the beginning of 1984. I do know that AIG’s return on capitol and margins were greater than other insurers during the mid-80′s and thereafter and the other insurers had to cheat in order to keep up. Prior to 1984 I saw little that would indicate that to any great extent widespread fraud was occuring among insurers.

    I don’t find writing all that difficult especially once there is an outline or plan. A series of diaries would, however, as you suggest be helpful.

    I have the evidence obtained through discovery, investigation and under oath testimony. The evidence is not in the public domain which can be linked to. Even though some of the evidence was made public in a trial it is not where it can be linked to. That is a problem in considering a diary because I would not want to make allegations that I could not support with the evidence and where it is not located where it can be linked to presents a problem. I do believe I can connect and identify the beginning of the frauds which were started for the purpose to grow the business larger and increase the value of the stock.

    To tell you the truth I have, for some time, been considering a book on the AIG matter. The story has not yet ended. I will consider the diary suggestion. Is there any chance that you would assit me in getting started? I am a bit tech challenged. I used to have your email address which you had supplied a few years back when you were going to host a get-together. If you would consent I would be happy to trade some ideas about possible diaries.

    Did you know that AIG used to and maybe still does stiff their own attorneys? In the late 80′s and early 90′s Greenberg started a procedure where he would only pay attorney bills once per year and by the end of the year the attorneys would have hundreds of thousands of dollars racked up in billings. AIG would then not respond to the bills and eventually when the heat would get on for payment AIG would come in and tell the attorneys they had overbilled and would negotiate a ‘compromise’ of the bills at 50-60%. Attorneys don’t like suing their own clients espcially one as large as AIG and only occasionally would they get a lawsuit for fees but there are some interesting cases out there.

    I will consider diaries.

    Hi eCahn. The story is way to huge for a diary. A book probably would be more appropriate. The story involves extortion, cover-up’s of criminal activity, judicial bribery, defrauding employees and much other misconduct in order to cover-up widespread and longterm fraud.

    Speaking of a mother lode of negative information regarding Greenberg and AIG I litigated a case against them for a period of in excess of ten years. During that time I assembled a lot of very damaging evidence. I may not know as much as you do about these frauds but I know a lot that is not in the general knowledge of the mainstream. They were certainly [and probably still are] nothing but an ongoiong criminal enterprise.
