It is just a step. We petitioned (for a writ certiorari) to have the court hear our case here.  The Supreme Court must grant the writ in order to have our lawsuit questions heard by the Supreme Court.  

Writ of Certiorari

Our writ of mandamus (see earlier post) was returned because of some format deficiencies. We used the opportunity to alter our petition in to one asking for a Supreme Court review of the decisions and laws of the lawsuit. One does this through a petition for a writ of certiorari. It is linked to the […]

I am just an individual, yet, I am forced to legally confront the United States and its agent the IRS (many people and considerable resources) in order to protect my family’s rights. In the legal world they call me pro se. It is an unbalanced battle. If might made right, this dispute would have been […]

Federal statutes defeat deterrence for IRS employees’ intentional violation of the law.  This is why the IRS acts like a bully. We sued, claiming that once deterrence for intentional violation of the law is defeated, a taxpayers’ due process rights can be undone.  The lawsuit was dismissed because the District Court concluded that once Congress gives IRS […]

There are three principle lawsuits against the United States. One is the RICO lawsuit.  Its status has not changed.  It is still pending before the Ninth Circuit.  The court had received the briefs of the appeal over a year ago (12-09-2011). The second is the one we call the Bane Act lawsuit.  All the required appeal briefs […]

Our judicial immunity appeal brief has been submitted.

Our appeal brief has been submitted.  It is distressing.  What usually happens when I produce one of these things is I get smarter.  I have now learned that my arguments surrounding judicial immunity for our lawsuit are somewhat irrelevant. This is because judges lose their judicial immunity when they lack jurisdiction of a lawsuit.  Well, […]
