Victory short-lived... Judicial Watch and SBX2 11

Judicial Watch won a lawsuit against the County of Los Angeles on October 10, 2008 regarding the illegal benefits being paid to the judges there; but the County appealed the decision and was granted summary judgment in August, 2009. A history of this case, arranged in a timeline, can be found at the website of Judicial Watch.

Prosecutorial Misconduct Case

Can prosecutors be sued? A case was heard On November 5 in Supreme Court, but it is usually weeks or months before a decision comes. 

"When the false testimony and other exculpatory evidence was discovered, the two innocent men, Curtis McGhee and Terry Harrington, were released after 25 years in prison. They filed a lawsuit against the prosecutors." Click here to link to the decision.

Click here for the story of the two black men who were wrongfully convicted, and freed 25 years later. 

"Former Bush administration Solicitor General Paul Clement will tell the Supreme Court that in 1977, Council Bluffs was an almost all-white community, and that politics and race played a part in the prosecutor's decisions."

Good Luck Leon!

A friend of mine, Leon Bard is running for a seat on the town council... in Lisbon or Lisbon Falls. A vote for him will get us closer to our goal of an accountable government! Lots of important issues are on the ballot. Get out and vote tommorrow!

A vote Yes on question 1 will repeal gay marriage. You may want to read one of my older posts. This spring or summer, I listened to the work session on gay marriage. During the meeting, the Chair of the judiciary committee, Senator Lawrence Bliss, admitted he was gay, and that this was a personal issue for him. Yet the public was banned from expressing their opinions about the legislation... one woman was even removed from the room for trying! I was listening live.

That I'm linking to the following article on TABOR ought to tell you which side of the issue I'm on.

Connection to "District of Columbia" Case

Back in the spring of 2007, I added my son and I to a sort of "class-action" lawsuit. A bunch of people who had been denied due process were doing the same. The lawsuit had been started by Family Rights Radio's Eddie Andrews. Carl Weston, and Dale Rodney Class were plaintiffs in the case. Here's a link to civil case # 07CV 200CVE-FHM filed in United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma in which you'll find our names... scroll down to Michaud.

I got some paperwork regarding the case recently. Under Part 3 of 8, in Rod's D.C. case # 0005391-09, on the last page Rod mentions that our evidence is sitting in Congress. Under the heading JUDICIAL NOTICE TO THIS COURT: That, We, the people of the states of America, have overtly provided Congress House and Senate Judiciary Committees with Evidence and/or Exhibits with NO Concern of ANY "Due Process." One of the things Rod is asking for, from the D.C. court is a hearing before Congress. He and Dale Rodney Class will appear in D.C. on Friday, November 6, 2009! Good LuckCarl and Rod! More information can be found in their Talkshoe conference calls. Scroll down to Conference calls and Webcasts for the link.

Citizen's Forums on Judicial Accountability!

Tonight, on Dr. Shirley's Justice4Us conference call, Zena Logal (of NFOJA) was on. Scroll to "Conference calls and webcasts" at the bottom of this page to sign up for her Citizen's Forums on Judicial Accountability. Make a difference in your town, city, state! I've posted the link in resources as well, in right-hand column.

North and South - The "other" Maine

In the 1930's a group of nine black youths were imprisoned for crimes they didn't commit. They were tried by all-white juries. Here's a link to a posting about the case at Wikipedia. Later it was proven that blacks had been kept off of the jury rolls, they got new trials.

People often say we have two Maine's. Recent school consolidation measures makes one wonder if it isn't true. It's unfair to rural Maine; it puts us in a bind... placing penalties on towns who can't find others willing to join them to form larger units. There's even been talk about us seceding.

Some people in Lewiston/Auburn believe they're the "other" Maine, while people north of Bangor feel we are. Portland is more bustling than the rest of the state, thacity, that's for sure. There are alot of French people in L/A, and in other cities in New England. Nixon's Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP) used that to their advantage in 1972 when they paid someone to write a letter suggesting that Senator Ed Muskie, who was running against Nixon, was prejudiced against the French... that he had referred to them as "Canucks." Muskie's response became known as his "crying speech." He dropped out of the race after not doing as well as expected in the primaries. That summer the Watergate scandal began to unfold, but Nixon said he wasn't involved, and we elected him, by a landslide.

Do you ever wonder if Dennis Dechaine didn't have a fair trial because he was from the "other" Maine... the northern half? The trial was held in Rockland Maine. I'm guessing that there were no jurors from the north; the decisions which have kept him in prison all these years are coming from the south.

Dennis Dechaine

From October, 2009 Trial and Error Newsletter:

"Yet another year slowly closes in and still we have not given up the fight for justice as we surpass the 21st year in Dennis' wrongful conviction."

A motion for new trial was made in August of 2008... still no word. It appears that Judge Bradford, who is the judge who sentenced Dennis twenty years ago, will decide on the motion.

The directors of T & E are encouraging people to write letters to the editors of their local papers. At the Trial and Error website, there's a link to the email addresses of newspapers throughout the state which you can write to... they're listed under "What you can do." The newsletter hasn't yet been posted.
