KingCast and Brian Jesseman v. Union Leader, NH Hillsborough South 08-E-093.

It's in there. And as I noted in this post, not only did will the tool who used Brian's name end up facing a case of Misappropriation of Likeness and False Light Invasion of Privacy, the actions are also criminal in nature. Read RSA 638:1 carefully. I'll find out about the proposed temporary Order later today, meanwhile I have a conference call scheduled with opposing counsel Greg Sullivan right about.... now.

Okay. Had that talk, and unlike some evil attorneys I've dealt with (Read: Ransmeier & Spellman's Charlie Bauer -- seen here in a My Cousin Vinny send up, and Prosecutor Bill Albrecht) he's a reasonable man who obviously knows I know the law and what needs to happen here. And next I will be communicating with a company called Silvertech, who maintains the Union Leader's Internet files. When I have that communication I will most likely be armed with some sort of Court Order compelling the UL and its agents to cough up the Goods.

Just look at Brian's front porch will you? How could somebody be so stupid as to try to say that he supported Martha McLeod's properly-failed HB 1428 for Bruce McKay Highway.

UPDATE: Hearing set for 9:00 a.m. 10 March 2008.

Allow me to spell out the criminality, for which Mr. Jesseman and I will be approaching the prosecutor of the relevant jurisdiction of the perp:

638:1 Forgery. –

I. A person is guilty of forgery if, with purpose to defraud anyone, or with knowledge that he is facilitating a fraud to be perpetrated by anyone, he:

(b) Makes, completes, executes, authenticates, issues, transfers, publishes or otherwise utters any writing so that it purports to be the act of another, or purports to have been executed at a time or place or in a numbered sequence other than was in fact the case, or to be a copy of an original when no such original existed.

II. As used in this section, ""writing'' includes printing or any other method of....trademarks, and other symbols of value, right, privilege, or identification (like you know, someones NAME....)

IV. All other forgery is a class B misdemeanor.

V. A person is guilty of a class B misdemeanor if he knowingly possesses any writing that is a forgery under this section or any device for making any such writing. It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this paragraph that the possession was without an intent to defraud (I'm thinking -- crazy me -- that it might be hard to raise as a defense unless there is another "Brian Jesseman" in Franconia.....)

Yah, our perp is a douchebag, personified.

Perhaps Attorney General Ayotte will aid in the prosecution. I will certainly send her a letter of inquiry and an RSA 91-A request for her policy statements or position statements on Internet fraud.

Here's one of her news releases about Internet/Cybercrime, so I know she will zealously pursue the matter.

Here's another one.

She puts people in prison for preying on children and while this is not quite so ugly, it is indeed ugly enough to warrant prosecution.

I look forward to working with her.
