I request support and signatures from my readers.
Since yesterday, I have added an update to the petition, a supporting letter to the U.S. Congress which I provide here with formatting, for easier reading (Change.org removed formatting when I posted it).
- non-standard format;
- non-standard weight (60 pound);
- the font is only of "Century" family that is not usually used for pleadings, decisions or transcripts in other courts;
- non-standard binding as opposed to how pleadings are filed in paper format in other courts (saddle stitch or "perfect binding);
- printed on paper without gloss;
- printed on a laser quality printer or better quality;
- printed double-sided;
- presented as a typographic booklet;
- presented in 40 copies;
- presented with certain color covers for different documents; and where
- the already made decisions of lower courts, transcripts and pleadings should be re-formatted in accordance to Rule 33 requirements to fonts, margins, spacing etc., requiring hundreds of hours of unnecessary work and thousands of dollars to pay for that work.
- save paper;
- help the environment;
- eliminate hundreds of hours spent by the U.S. Supreme Court personnel on ensuring compliance with the technicalities of Rule 33;
- allow pleadings to be word-searchable in electronic format and zoomable in and out to adjust to the reading comfort level of the particular judge or law clerk.
Yesterday I received yet another inquiry, one of many I received since my suspension, for representation in federal court in a civil rights lawsuit against Social Services.
The attorney for the parent refused to sue out of fear of social services and fear to lose the attorney's license and livelihood.
It is heart-breaking to say to the person - yes, I am fully capable, knowledgeable, have skills and already brought a federal civil rights case to trial.
But, I am not allowed to help you - even where no other help is available.
Allegedly, for your own protection.
I am dangerous.
Because I am as skilled civil rights attorney who did not give a damn about the status of people I was suing on behalf of clients.
I cannot represent people and I must say "no" to them, otherwise I will be incarcerated - whether I am right or wrong, whether the government doing it to me and to my potential clients, is right or wrong.
But THIS I can do.
I can do petitions for everybody's benefit.
I can use my experience to draft them.
People can sign them.
And, altogether, we can make a change against discrimination in court.
Please, sign the petition.
