Slabbed Turns Ten: You ask Slabbed, we’ll eventually answer…..

Way back almost one year ago, Slabbed received a reader comment from ‘m constatintin” on the post Hizzoner appears on WLOX This Week, Waxes Nonsensical:

My god, tide is turning, just heard you got hammered in Miss. State court, the Canadians won and are really coming for you, guess they plan on collecting and holding you accountable ?

Judge Schmidt says you defended? Did you?
Hadn’t yet thought about all implications but at first glance the res judicata implications are great !
What about judicial interest for three years on 180,000 at 6% and cost yet to be levied for the ongoing violations of Canadian copyright at Slabbed? This is a kind of intentional tort that can’t be done away with in a bankruptcy, no?

Help us out here please, hard and complex story and facts to digest.

First I’d like to say thank you for stopping in with us M, even from a proxied IP address. I am not really commenting on this topic in favor of litigating the issues in the courtroom but since you asked I will disclose a few things.

Before I do that I need to share something from my experience as publisher of Slabbed, namely there being are three general kinds of people behind the keyboard bloviating in the media, social or otherwise:

  • Blowhards that talk a big game but couldn’t name one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the 1st Amendment. They have an opinion about everything and know jack shit about most things.
  • Those that are smart enough to understand what they do not know, understand they can learn from others and act appropriately with that knowledge. I think we have a high concentration of that kind of commenter here at Slabbed compared to other types of media, social or otherwise.  (Community sourcing rocks and so does the community.)
  • A few people that have the sack to defend those five freedoms guaranteed by our constitution, be it military against a foreign adversary or in a courtroom against domestic threats to those five freedoms, which sadly now include our current President.

With that set up M, this brawl has been going on a very long time, since 2011 in fact. I won a case of First Impressions involving the 1st Amendment. So Aaron Broussard’s business associates decided to sue me again and again and again and again so forth and so on, several of those times joining my Counsel in order to conflict them out.  Every case they filed but one has since petered out and the lawyer / mastermind behind such a litigation strategy has been put on the shelf but not before he helped his SLAPP happy buddies sue their first Mississippi Attorney, Henry Laird, for Malpractice – in New Orleans.

The gang did manage to get a copyright judgment against me personally in Canada but let’s circle that for now because Charles Leary, Vaughn Perret and Trout Point Lodge, Limited are known in legal parlance as judgment debtors and they owe me some money, bigly in fact, something they left out of the fictionalized news accounts about this fight up in Canada. And when you’re an American Citizen M, (not Canadian as you suggested) and don’t pay up on judgments and don’t cooperate with Federal court orders to appear, you get cited for contempt and of course they now owe me more money, are correctly described as contemnors and the meter is running evergreen: Continue reading “Slabbed Turns Ten: You ask Slabbed, we’ll eventually answer…..”

Deadbeat Judgment Debtors: They still owe me for the first try.

I hear Team Goatherder is trying, via listserv, to solicit representation for a redo of the SPEECH Act case Trout Point Lodge, Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret recently lost to me in a precedent setting decision.  I guess it is time I solve a mystery for all the national law bloggers that wrote about the case.

The court ruled the way it did on the default because we agreed to try the case on cross motion for summary judgment, which you lawyers know means there could be no dispute of material facts.  So I took a mulligan and stipulated to all the crazy stuff Trout Point Lodge, Leary and Perret said in their nonsensical complaint, including being the sole author of all the posts and comments made to the blog, something they absolutely knew to be untrue when they plead it since they had been previously conducting a witch hunt against Slabbed for Aaron Broussard in their Louisiana Media SLAPP suit for 5 months previous. That is the tip of the iceberg.

A plain read of the SPEECH Act indicates I am entitled to have their defamation allegations heard right here on the Gulf Coast, in full and this time there won’t be any stipulations on a cross MSJ. Continue reading “Deadbeat Judgment Debtors: They still owe me for the first try.”

Now folks, this greatly warms the cockles of my heart

I think we need a name for Mississippi House Bill 44 such as Leary’s law or the SLAPP Happy Nut job Foreign Judgment Non Enforcement Act of 2014. I imagine the folks in officialdom in Nova Scotia, now known for being a defamation haven from which felonious politicians and their close business associates can sue their US based critics will be paying close attention to the bill sponsored by State Representative Jeffrey Smith from District 39, which has now been referred to the House Judiciary A Committee. Editorially Slabbed New Media is 100% behind House Bill 44. The preamble from Section 1 well explains:

The Legislature finds that it is the public policy of this state to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law will result in the violation of a right guaranteed by the Constitution of this state or of the United States, including, but not limited to, due process, freedom of religion, speech, or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the Constitution of this state.

How about some lovely music from the incomparable Babs:

Rope n throw n brand ’em: Tim Whitmer contradicts Aaron Broussard’s sworn testimony in the Broussard Flood suit.

Yes he did and that pesky ol’ Mount Hermon Louisiana keeps coming up time and again! Ol’ Aaron is making quite the convenient whipping boy there in his Granville County North Carolina prison cell.  Hows about some links folks:

Former top aide contradicts Broussard on pump operators’ evacuation ~ Chad Calder

Aaron Broussard knew of pump operator evacuations before Katrina, aide says ~ Paul Purpura

Editorially Slabbed believes that Broussard purposely ordered the pump operators away from their stations so as to be able to cash in on the resulting graft opportunities. We’ll see what the jury says soon enough.

Speaking of Broussard and his group of cronies, David Loeb, one of the gang that swore an affidavit for Trout Point Lodge in their Nova Scotia SLAPP suit against Louisiana Media Company has popped up again in the news like a bad penny this time wearing a wire on Ray Reggie, the former brother in law of the late Ted Kennedy: Continue reading “Rope n throw n brand ’em: Tim Whitmer contradicts Aaron Broussard’s sworn testimony in the Broussard Flood suit.”

Trout Point Lodge, Vaughn Perret and Charles Leary remain repugnant to the US Constitution

I invite all of my media brothers and sisters to sleep well tonight under the blanket of freedom provided by Slabbed New Media, Bobby Truitt and yours truly. Click the pic to score the 25 page opinion.  I’ll have more a bit later.

Opinion Opinion

Slabbed takes the “Ignatius challenge” and writes one wayyyyy to the inside.

Comment from V, an US citizen whose privacy was invaded by Charles Leary and Vaughn Perret of Trout Point Lodge in their SLAPP suit against Fox 8.  This comment certainly earned the ire of Team Goatherder and it is apparent from V’s tone he was well aware of the threats that were being passed about regarding Slabbed on the mean streets of Jefferson Parish:

Please note all of the below is PUBLIC information.

There are no statements asserted as “fact” here; this is information recited from public sources and under no circumstances is this to be construed as anything but opinion and maybe occasionally satire. Thank you.

Ok, some thoughts:

2/22/11 report from the Pic (Rioux):

“The following individuals and firms made $1,000 contributions to Broussard after his resignation:

Amy M. Arthur of Madisonville, Bruce D. Burglass Jr. of Metairie, David R. Sherman of Metairie, Greg Cantrell Inc. of St. Rose, J. Caldarera & Co. of LaPlace, Bryan Krantz of Kenner, Jennifer Lanasa of New Orleans, John E. Lapworth of Metairie, Francis E. Lauricella of Harahan, Paul D. Monsour of Kenner, Leonard B. Newton of Pass Christian, Miss., Quest Realty of Metairie, Wayne E. Thomas of Metairie and John H. Wales of Mandeville.”

You will see there: Bryan Krantz, apparently the son of Marie Krantz.

Sherman – you know who that is, Chehardy & Co.

Caldarera – that as everyone knows by now means WARD

Wales – his name’s been mentioned before?

Monsour – well, it just so happens…

… there is a company called Mississippi 214, L.L.C. in Greenville. Its purpose? Who knows but Peter Butler Jr. is apparently the owner of it, because while MS does not show officers in their listings (why not again?) it does show agents (a Philip Mansour, with an *a*, typo? Close, but no, maybe not.) and an address, 7216 Stoneleigh Drive, Harahan LA 70123.

Also at that address…






All basically showing the same info:

“Officer: PETER J. BUTLER, JR.
Title: Manager
Address 1: 7216 STONELEIGH DRIVE
City, State, Zip: HARAHAN, LA 70123″

As for the word “Praka”, who knows what that means. Continue reading “Slabbed takes the “Ignatius challenge” and writes one wayyyyy to the inside.”

Yup (Part 18): Now the Goatherders want to swap back to defamation in Canada

Must be fever blister season at ol’ Trout Point Lodge folks. They have asked the court to seal and strike that which the American judges are seeing. How telling.  Click the pic to nab the full, unredacted 204 page pdf that Trout Point Lodge does not want anyone to see:
