Great info. Where can I find more about the Oregon Federal Public Defender's outline? The link you have doesn't seem to be working. Thank you.

The Ninth Circuit is still unable to consistently apply Rooker-Feldman. They affirmed dismissal of my wholly prospective challenge to a State state.

Facts and briefs are here:

My case is now dead - the likely only time in my life i'll need fedral intervention, they denied me. Now I just want an investigation and explanation.

Dear Mr. Sady,

Guantanamo's prison facility corrupts the primacy of justice in America, and we at Soft Skull Press admire your labors championing equity for Abd al Rashim Abdul Rassak, as well as due process others who currently languish in unwarranted incarceration. Inspired by your resolve, we would like to offer you an advance copy of Dorothea Dieckmann’s novel Guantanamo, translated from German by Tim Mohr.
Characterized by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung as “one of the best, if not the best German novels since the dawn of the new millennium,” Guantanamo neither proselytizes nor overtly indicts Camp X-Ray. Rather, Dieckmann demonstrates through the candid internal monologue of 20-year-old Rashid Bakhrani the effects of imposed physical and psychological horrors, which your efforts combat. While Badisch Zeitung predicts a niche for “this extraordinary book” alongside the works of Kafka, Levi, and Solzhenitsyn, Guantanamo presently defers the literary canon; its potential as an agent for political improvements supersedes the static nature of canonical texts. Publishers Weekly asserts that Guantanamo wields the impact of “…a kick to the head”. We hope that said power abets your struggle towards rectifying the blight called Guantanamo.
If you would like a copy of Dieckmann’s Guantanamo, please respond to with your most suitable mailing address, and I will dispatch a copy promptly. Thank you once again for your work!

Can discipline costs or Client Security Funds be retroactive and if so for how long. The California Legislature amended B&P 6140.5 and 6080.10 to make discipline costs instant money judgments but were silent on retroactive application of the statutes. The California State Bar has a new "Pursuit Policy" which set ten years as the limit for now. They can contact Consumer Credit Companies and report the attorneys. If they apply their policy it may seek out estates of disciplined attorneys. They can file money judgments immediately and go after assets the disciplined attorney has. Maybe garnish wages if disciplined attorney is working? The 9th Cir. recently said the statutes were retroactive but did not set a time limit. See Gadda v. State Bar, et al., NO. 06-15344, 12/27/07.
