    E-Discovery Nuts and Bolts: Introduction to Litigation Readiness

    in Legal

    On December 1, 2006, changes relating to electronically stored information ("ESI") in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure took effect.  The changes to Rules 16, 26, 33, 34, 37, 45 and Form 35 provide mandates to the preservation, discoverability, production, accessibility, and costs associated with ESI which includes e-mail, word processing documents, spreadsheets, voice mail, databases, and more.

    Throughout the audio series you will learn:


    1. The Basics of Electronic Discovery


    2. An Electronic Discovery Checklist


    3. Requesting Electronic Discovery


    4. Responding to an Electronic Discovery Request

    Chap 1 & 2 "Reading of Rulers of Evil" by Tupper Saussy, Read by Jörg Glismann

    in History

    Chapter 2 MISSIONARY ADAPTATION
    FEW PEOPLE SEEM to be aware that the Roman Catholic Church in America is officially recognized as a State.  How this came about makes interesting reading.  Early in his administration, President Ronald Reagan invited the Vatican City, whose ruling head is the Pope, to open its first embassy in Washington, D.C.  His Holiness responded positively, and the embassy, or Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See, opened officially on January 10, 1984.


    (Nun-ci-a-ture a papal diplomatic mission headed by a nuncio)


        Shortly thereafter, a complaint was filed against President Reagan at U.S. District Court in Philadelphia by the American Jewish Congress, the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs, Seventh Day Adventists, the National Council of Churches, the National Association of Evangelicals, and Americans United for Separation of Church and State.  The plaintiffs sought to have the Court declare that the administration had unconstitutionally granted to the Roman Catholic faith privileges that were being denied to other establishments of religion.


    On May 7, 1985 the suit was thrown out by Chief Judge John Fullam.  Judge Fullam ruled that district courts do not have jurisdiction to intervene in “foreign policy decisions” of the executive branch.  Bishop James W. Malone, President of the U.S. Catholic Conference, praised Judge Fullam’s decision, noting that it settled “not a religious issue but a public policy question.”

    Andre Controversa Presents: Civil Asset Forfeiture and Police Executions

    in Politics Conservative

    We already have tonight's show lined up. We had a lively debate yesterday, and we're on a roll, so why not have another?


    Tonight, May 14th, at 9-00 p.m. CST, we will once again address the sticky issue of police violence, with two distinguished guests. We will be joined for the first hour by Brandi Grayson, co-founder of a coalition called Young, Gifted and Black.


    We will be discussing the recent police shooting of Tony Robinson in Madison Wisconsin. Our question for debate will be; Tony Robinson, police execution or act of self-defense? Brandi's sparring partner will be Derrick Green, a ministerial candidate and student at Fuller Theological Seminary, and a member of the black conservative group, Project 21. Let's hope it's a real dog and pony show like the last one we had; I'm up for some hot and heavy action.


    Our second hour will focus on the despicable practice of civil asset forfeiture. Most of you at libertarianrepublican.net probably know that police departments, under the color of federal drug laws, have the right to seize money or property found on civilians, if they even suspect those assets were obtained illegally. A person doesn't even have to be charged with a crime; they are presumed guilty until proven innocent. With us to discuss this travesty is San Diego Attorney Michael Pancer, who defense multiple plaintiffs on this issue. He is scheduled for 30 minutes, but Jim and I can take up the rest of the hour chatting about current events and giving our wise and astute political commentary.

    Cochran Firm Fraud v. Justice for Stanley Parker, Killed by St. Louis PD 2002

    in Politics Progressive

    Another Cochran Firm Fraud: Meet us Thursday night at 6:00pmPST to meet Ms. J. Nashville and learn about police violence against her son, Stanley Parker, 17, and The Cochran Firm fraud that robbed her family of justice in this wrongful death case. Call in at (818)572.2947 to NNIA1 at Blogtalkradio (Justice for All). The African American youth was killed by a St.Louis police officer Keith McGull in 2002. On the civil trial date in 2006, Rodney Holmes, Esq., a Cochran Firm lawyer, was missing in action. Holmes did not appear in court to defend his client's wrongful death case. Nashville called The Cochran Firm's office and inquired. The Cochran Firm frauds reportedly called Holmes repeatedly but claimed they could not reach the missing attorney. The police department's lawyer reportedly told Nashville that Holmes often did that to clients. Once again, The Cochran Firm frauds used up their client's statute of limitations then pulled their CoIntelPro trick and "disappeared" -­ this time on the court date. Later, Nashville was allegedly told that The Cochran Firm had no money to pay for a continuance. She says she could not find another lawyer to take the case at the last minute and that the judge refused to allow her to proceed as a pro se plaintiff. Therefore, her son's wrongful death resulted in justice denied. Many Cochran Firm clients find themselves in similar circumstances. Read more at 
    "Fraud Against Police Victim Stanley Parker" in our "Cochran Firm Fraud" blog.
