From an OPERATION SPOTLIGHT activist Steve Williams:
Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2012
I had a particularly interesting telephone conversation with Valerie White at the Clerk of Courts office at the Federal Circuit Court today. Apparently, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals has no record of Dr. A’s having ever filed an Amicus Curiae brief. My exact words to the person on the phone were: “Yes, Dr. A filed an Amicus brief on behalf of Leader Technologies, in the Leader v Facebook case. The USPS Express Mail delivery ticket was dated and timed on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 and the Court’s denial of the motion was turned around and mailed back THE SAME DAY! [DLK: Here are all these filings and the amicus curiae brief delivery receipt.]
Valerie White: “That can’t be accurate, because that wouldn’t allow the judges time to even see it, yet alone rule on it; nor would it even be enough time to have it filed within our office, given it was a Saturday.”
Steve Williams: “Exactly! So what gives?”
Valerie White: “Has she refilled it?”
Steve Williams: “I believe she has for the third time!”
Valerie White: “Well, we have no record of that either.”
I, then, went on to give Valerie a detailed accounting of this case history, and shw seemed very curious as to the timing of the judges’ rulings (at both courts).
I asked Valerie how it was that Facebook and Fox Business knew of the ruling ahead of Mike’s appearance on said network.
I asked Valerie if they knew of anyone filing a “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)” request, given new revelations of conflicts of interests of 2 of the 3 presiding judges…
Valerie White: ”No”
I then directed Valerie to Donna Kline’s site and suggested that she and anyone else in that office read up on what’s going on.
Valeri gave me her supervisor’s name and number
Valeri White: "James Benjamin, (202) 275-8031; Valerie told me that all the information that I had given to them would definitely be forwarded on to him.
I suggest that everyone involved in OPERATION SPOTLIGHT call the Clerk of Court’s Office. We need to barrage them day and night until they listen. Federal employees are people too, no matter how crooked some may be, and they do not want to deal with aggravation, anymore than you and I do.
I believe Valerie was sincere and seemed very curious. She had concern in their voice—that something was amiss here. She did tell me that it was not the court’s practice to arbitrarily deny motions without being reviewed by the judges. So, either Clerk of Court Jan Horbaly acted out-of-bounds, or the whole office is in on this cover-up. Either way, calling them does get their attention, I believe.
Keep the faith! We will be victorious!
8/8/2012 — when I called Valerie White back earlier today to her personal number that she had left the two days before, and that I had called back on yesterday, I was surprised to hear a recording that said “This number is no longer in service or has been changed.” That was it! No forwarding number. I guess Valerie didn’t get the cover-up memo?
