Professors of Flaw

It's too bad the Maine Supreme Court won't allow Husson College to start up their own law school, or should I say won't let students who attend take the BAR exam. Husson wanted to open a law school in Bangor, which is halfway up the state, but the Supreme Court of Maine won't let students take the Bar exam without first attending an accredited school... that is, one under the thumb of the Maine and American Bar Associations. You'll find the order at Recent Maine Supreme Court decisions all the way down at the bottom of the page. SJC-242, June 3, 2008.

I got a letter from the ABA about a month ago, after I provided them with a copy of my reconsideration request to the Maine Supreme Court asking that they hear my son's medical malpractice case. A summary judgment to defendants was granted after what I believe to be a fraudulently made motion for it by their attorney, Daniel Rapaport of Preti Flaherty. Here's the February of 2008 Maine Supreme Court decision in Aaron Michaud v. Blue Hill Memorial et al The ABA said it couldn't help... that the authority to discipline an attorney ultimately rests with that state's Supreme Court.

You'll see from the Supreme Court's order regarding Husson's program, many individuals supported the college's attempt to start a law school.

Professor Cabanne Howard teaches at the University of Maine Law School. He's also the chair of the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability... which has dismissed all three of my complaints! Howard worked in the office of the Maine attorney general for about a quarter century. When I filed my a complaint in October of 2006, my third one against judges, I cc'd it to Peter Pittegoff, Dean of the law school; he did not respond to my letter.

Dad would have liked the following quote. He felt that highly educated people often lack common sense.

I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to reason incorrectly.

I'm constantly having to prioritize: how much time to spend working on finding a publisher, getting our cases heard, and finishing the book... not to mention I have a family, a home, a job, and a property rental business!

J.K.Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, was rejected by about a dozen publishers until Bloomsbury finally took her work. Don't mention it - I've already sent sample chapters to the Bloomsbury in England; my book isn't the "black swan" they're looking for.

Do you know who William Loeb is? Kevin Cash wrote about him. Here's an article about Loeb and Cash, who exposed Loeb through a book. Loeb was a powerful newspaper editor; he was responsible for printing a letter (Canuck letter) about our Maine Senator Ed Muskie, who might have beat Richard Nixon if he hadn't lost important primaries after trying to defend himself against the letter whose writer - it was later discovered - was paid by the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP). The letter, and Loeb's remarks about Muskie's wife, prompted a speech by Muskie in which he appeared to cry. It was snowing that day in February of 1972. The public perceived Muskie as weak, and he dropped out of the presidential race soon after. George McGovern, who was a weaker candidate, lost to Nixon. That summer, several men were arrested for breaking into the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate Hotel...
