I am being sued for something that happened at the December 2000 Freep of Joe Lieberman.
JimRob has allowed me to hold an internet fundraiser to help defray the costs of my lawyers fees.
I am broke and thousands of dollars in debt, and depending on how much I can collect here, I amnot sure if I can continue or work to sign a mutual release if offered.
Right now, we have ended the discovery phase, and are awaiting the deposition of the man who accused me of assaulting him that day.
That charge is a lie.
The following story below is my short account of what happened that day.
Race Bannon PayPal acct.
My check is in the mail!
We just finished a lawsuit that was totally unjustified, and I feel your pain! I will send you an early Christmas present.
Hamilton on the way. Good luck!
Mark would be an excellent guy to have in your corner :)
That was Christ like.
No, I am a renter, no insurance.
Ok, you give us Catholics a bad name.
It's good to know FReeper have your back!
Mike, I don't know if you know Race or not; but he's one of the good guys. Been around this place a LONG time. Will you please use your ping list to notify more FReepers. Also, please ask your church to pray. The enemy cannot win!
My small help is on the way. Wish this was in Houston, I could offer more help.
Required disclaimer: I am a law student, not a lawyer. I am not admitted to the bar of any state.
Silly. You can file a motion for summary judgment in state court too. But to do that you have to take the pleadings of the other party as fact. If he's stated (rather than proven) a case in his pleadings, you're not going to win a SJ motion.
Yep! Mark is a pitbull.
And a fine Christian ye be!
Not necessary. I'll simply await spontaneous human combustion in your case.
This is about a brother in need. Do what you wish.
If you get around to setting up a paypal account please let me know. I live in Australia and to send a bank draft in US dollars costs $20. Stay in touch...Freepmail me when you have it set up and I will happily contribute what I can. Good luck.
Too much multitasking.
I will help. Just finished paying bills, adding one more won't hurt ;) BTTT Pings, please, CyberCowboy :)
He left his first church in New Haven, Pitts Chapel Unified Free Will Baptist Church, amid controversy,
I wonder what the controversy was?
before founding First Calvary Baptist Church. In 1998, he resigned from his position at the Livable City Initiative, the city's anti-blight agency, after an investigation revealed there were no records of what work he was being paid for.
In 1996, Kimber was convicted of stealing nearly $4,000 in burial expenses from an elderly New Haven woman while he was managing a funeral home for the owner, who was in prison at the time. Kimber, who is black, was convicted by an all-white jury, and the mayor and police chief served as character witnesses at his trial. He was fined and ordered to pay restitution, as well as serve 2,500 hours of community service.
Despite his controversial exploits, Kimber remains respected by city leaders.
Birds mof a feather.
Did you ask the question?
What would Jesus Do? Apparently, not!
of a feather.
My $25 commin at ya. Can you countersue HIM for assult, since he jumped on your truck? Why not take a piece of his sorry ass.
I do wish for you the very best. My prayers will be with you and also a check will be posted tomorrow. Hope it helps
Thank you all for your help!
I have had to keep this as a secret, we did not kow what was going to transpire, we had to just watch.
I did mention it to a few small groups of friends, but only once or twice publically, and I had to keep the details real quiet.
Now, we are at a crossroads, and I need to catch up on the lawyers fees.
I cannot reveal anymore than I have, and maybe not all that I have.
I am not trying to say anything to offend the plaintiff, none of what I have said is false, it is the facts as I know them and know to be true.
Foolish statement. You want to put the guy in federal prison too?
Thank you, Mike, I appreciate the help.
Some people cannot separate the religious debating from the religious emotion involved.
I will not recant on things I have said and still believe, but I will say that much of what I have been accused of is a gross exaggeration. :)
Brand X...I knew you had loot..........
$10.00 check going out in the mail tomorrow.
If this suit is successful, we're all in line for the same. The DNC will jump on this gladly.
I just licked the envelope. It's not much but every bit should help. Best of luck
For those of you who don't know Race Bannon, let me tell you about a couple of incidents about him:
He was a lone Freeper in Hartford, CT one night -- who stood against a hostile crowd. That was the first time I had heard of Race -- but not the last.
Another time was at a Hillary Freep in NY State.It was a hot, sticky day, and Race showed up, sweating, and with his tie askew. He was carrying a pile of big signs, and had parked quite a distance away and had to walk a bit to get to us. He apologized for being late and said he had attended church and couldn't leave. When I mentioned that it was too bad that he had to walk so far from his car, he said "I'm a Marine. I do what I have to do.!" (OWTTE)
Race is a big guy, and people try to set him up --- (as this guy in the case has). At a Hillary book-signing in NJ, when Race had his arm in a sling from surgery, some guy came up real close to him, but Race quickly stepped back ---knowing that the man could say that Race had touched him - and then yelling assault. Race is pretty saavy about such things. He knows the protocol.That is why this counter-protester is waaaaay off.
I'm sure many have their Race Bannon stories. This is a pretty special person. I hope this thread will spread and help him out of this jam.
Thank you, Race, for standing up for us all at that Freep! I can't do much, but will send what I can, $20. Maybe I can do more later. God Bless and Keep you, and Grant you Victory over the Liar who is suing you falsely!
Foolish statement. It won't be taxable towards the GIVER'S estate tax credit, but it WILL be taxable towards the recipient.
No flames here. I'm just truly speechless seeing your conduct on this thread.
You are not the one that should be embarrassed.
