From The Ethics Alarms Frivolous And Vexatious Litigation Files: The Ethics Alarms Libel Case

Once again, the appellate brief for the appeal in Massachusetts courts involving the defamation lawsuit against me and ethics alarms has been rejected by the courts as non-compliant. This is actually somewhat annoying, as I had almost finished the brief brief in response (in market contrast to the 70-plus page monstrosity that was served on me. It took several hours to read the thing, several days to recuperate from the barn fervor, that is, bran flavor…no, brain fever! That’s it!

having to decipher the damn thing inflicted on me, and several more hours to almost finish my professional, clear document designed to give the poor clerk and judges that would have to read the appellate brief a break. That stalled, because while I am entitled to have the Appendix to the appellant’s brief to refer to, it was too big a file for the court to send to me, so they were making a special file.

So now I’m confused about 1) whether the deadline for my response is reset, 2) whether I’m going to have to start my response all over again, and most of all, 3), how many times a pro se litigant with no clue what he’s doing whose only motivation is revenge and to cause as much expense and inconvenience as possible because I banned him from Ethics Alarms after I figured out that he was, well, the kind of person who would behave like this?

It is a great virtue of our nation and its legal system that it allows amateurs—I was going to write well-meaning and sincere amateurs, but that obviously doesn’t apply here—to stumble around in the courts. After all, lawyers are expensive, even more expensive than psychiatrists. Nevertheless, there has to be a limit, don’t you think? People like my adversary cost the system, and taxpayers, millions of dollars as they play around being lawyer because they are bored, ” a few cherries short of a sundae,” to quote the comment that started this fiasco, without gainful employment, or all three.

Or does my home state assume that eventually pro se litigants will be so embarrassed by the constant rejection that they will give up? Boy, I hope not, because this guy is impossible to embarrass .

Well, I guess I have to call the Clerk of the Court again. We’re getting to be great pals.

  1. You should (in Utopia) now be afforded an option to request that the court certify any further appellate briefs before submitting a request for response from you and starting the clock. That’s just common sense, at least, to me.

  2. Sorry you are having such a miserable time in the courts, but I always assumed that was the norm by design. Maybe common sense will reign this in soon.

    The ability to bring cases without an attorney is a wonderful right, especially when no lawyer in the entire state will take your case.

    Of course, perhaps in this case, George Young may have done better without an attorney, since this one seems to be doing his best to sink his client’s case.

  3.

    I know this isn’t going to enamor you of me, Jack, but I find this entire saga fascinating. It is a look inside the legal system that most of us are denied, and it is both frightening and comforting at the same time. Bizarre.

    I pray this ends for you soon, but it has been valuable to me. I know that’s cold comfort, but the world is what it is.
