KingCast asks, "WWMD?"

What would John McEnroe do, seeing as he is The Tennis Demigod, IMO. Well he would beat a strong Mats Wilander, and then go on to defeat Bjorn Borg tomorrow at the Staples/Champions tour at Agganis Arena. I told him to handle it, and he gave me the thumbs-up!

Mats got a kick out of my snide comment about seeing another 6.5 hour match a la 1982 Davis Cup, LOL (YouTube video) He sent the last ball over toward me on match point, it's sitting on my desk. I have some okay shots of Mats, and a couple of vids coming later I'll make a KingCast movie of stills/vids in the next week, but mostly I was just watching. Mac is incredible at 50 or whatever he is these days, the most entertaining player of the Modern Era. Kudos to Courier and Arias as well, both great sports. I forgot how candid Arias is, he's a blast, and Courier was funny as hell with his mime antics. Thanks, guys. Everybody's game pretty much looks the same these days but with you I know who I'm watching right from the get-go.

KingCast says Neil Tobin, Mass Division of Banks still trying to railroad Black female mortgage broker Cat Gibbons on Stated Income Deals.

These cats are shameless. Hearing Officer Neil Tobin (speaking for the DOB apparently) rejected her proposed modifications to a Confidentiality Agreement that would explicitly allow her to file requested documents in subsequent court actions. Obviously she has a right to appeal any adverse administrative action using relevant documents from the proceeding, any other approach is Unconstitutional.

So she signed the Agreement as is but now they have issued her another letter attempting to modify the Agreement and tell her she can't even show the documents to her witnesses who will be testifying at her hearing. That's bullshit and they know it. Bull. Shit. And it's never going to pass Constitutional muster.

They have also inserted another phantom letter that was never in her file, the same way they did at MCAD.

And they still have not provided her with:

a) her complete file, including correspondence both ways,
b) a list of the names of brokers who did Stated Deals because she will be able to show that they came after her arbitrarily and/or in racist and retaliatory fashion because there were other brokers with complaint histories against them and lower ratings against whom the DOB did NOT seek enforcement proceedings. Cat Gibbons and Miracle Mortgage did not deceive any buyers or put them in Harm's Way, she followed the guidelines of her lender.... who was not punished by DOB, BTW. Read more.

KingCast reminder to Sam Shaulson, Melissa Rodriguez and Citibank: I've been winning oral advocacy awards and trials for years, guys.

Rev it up, boys and girls. State Debate finals, 1979 IIRC, and BLSA Second Place entire Midwest Region, 1992 and State v. Doyle, 1999. Juries tend to like me even as you and other corporate haters like American Tower imply I'm a Dangerous, Threatening Black Man. As D.S.'s Affidavit (and "American Lawyer" at KingCast.net) I emailed to Sam last night shows, they were just pissed-off because I reported underpayment of my trainees to the DOL, which fined.... err.... settled with them for $290K.

Anyway, you care to find out? If you do, I do.
PS: KingCast, Daniel S. Sogg, Dr. Joshua A. Breslau. We don't play. We come to win.

It's gnarly.

Soooo..... yah yah yah rah rah rah the 2CTs are really the shit, but how often do I push my bike hard enough to use them, not much. I may have 2 track days this year, lah-dee-dah.

KingCast reminder, don't forget this nonsense from the Courts in Gillenwater v. Barron and Denner.

Excuse me? "The way you went about it?" With all due respect (and not much is due, actually) WTF is THAT supposed to mean? Did he threaten violence? No. Did he threaten to reveal personal secrets about either of the attorneys? No. Was there a threat to National Security? No.

I forgot about how ridiculous Mr. Gillenwater's situation was, right here in the Good Ol' U.S.A. Then you add it to Citibank and Morgan Lewis, Sam Shaulson, Melissa Rodriguez and Benjamin Velella's nonsense and you have one nasty fornication fest. Best wear protection when you're working with Citibank skanks.

KingCast tells Sam Shaulson, Melissa Rodriguez, Morgan Lewis & Citibank, "You cannot stop proliferation of my Citibank scumbag lies and racism video."

Sooooo....How does Citibank stop proliferation of this video in the coming days, weeks, months and years?

Answer: Unless they settle with me, they don't. The ACLU has got my back like a MF, and any attempt to shut it down has to come before a Jury because I'll file a Jury Demand in my Answer to any complaint they could conceivably issue. Too bad I forgot to put in the sexism cases as well, here's one for $33M. What a bunch of dirty rotten scoundrels, oppression personified ('cos remember the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons now, Citizens United v. FEC 558 U.S. ____ 2010).

The Jury will be, like, "he's my hero!"

I've got law students getting ready to distribute the DVDs once I order them up, I'm not even going to bother pressing them myself, too time consuming for the volume planned.

With that, I'm firing up the 650R (it needs new skins ASAP, funny how once they start going it's a quick trip downhill LOL) and headed over to the Post Office to file this Rule 3.3/3.4 Ethics Complaint on Citibank lying lawyer Benjamin Velella.

KingCast HD presents: The John McEnroe show!

Coming to a high definition neighborhood near you soon!

Borg, McEnroe and some others are in town this week for the Champions Series, this pic I took at Indianapolis, 1990 his last tournament win IIRC. We didn't know what the hell HD was back then, we had big-assed clickers for remotes and stuff, LOL.

KingCast says, "Hats off to Miss NH finalist Alicia Rossman!"

Soooo.... I haven't found out how her interview went today but according to Seacoast Online she belted out "Son of a Preacher Man," so you know she's got soul. She does a ton of good work for underprivileged people too, check her blog.

KingCast asks lying Citibank Lawyer Ben Velella, Esq: "You ready for your Rule 3.3 Ethics Complaint, Sir?"

Wait for it.

28 April, 2010
Dear Reviewing Counsel:
Please review the attached DVD and documentation with all the earnestness at your command.

Benjamin D. Velella, Esq. misrepresented to licensed counsel and to an opposing party that:
A. No one at Citibank Chinatown branch told Derrick Gillenwater that the branch would cash his check once he updated his State ID to go along with his current Social Security Card.

B. No one at Citibank Chinatown branch told Derrick Gillenwater when we returned to the branch that the manager was not available.
With all due respect, these are bald-faced lies told in contravention of Rules 3.3 and 3.4 (and probably others) Candor toward the tribunal and opposing parties.
You can hear Derrick Gillenwater say as much in the video.
Equally important is the FACT that my lawyer told them to maintain the video from the Chinatown branch but they have not, and not only is that spoliation of evidence, it was a further attempt to cover up the lies because the video from both visits could be narrated and shown in order to support my contentions. Accord Kippenhan v. Chaulk, 428 Mass. 124 (1998).
Sanctions may be appropriate for the spoliation of evidence that occurs even before an action has been commenced, if a litigant or its expert knows or reasonably should know that the evidence might be relevant to a possible action. See Nally v. Volkswagen of Am., Inc., supra at 197-198; Lewy v. Remington Arms Co., 836 F.2d 1104, 1112 (8th Cir. 1988); Fire Ins. Exch. v. Zenith Radio Corp., 103 Nev. 648, 651 (1987). The threat of a lawsuit must be sufficiently apparent, however, that a reasonable person in the spoliator's position would realize, at the time of spoliation, the possible importance of the evidence to the resolution of the potential dispute.

With all due respect, when you get a letter from a lawyer threatening litigation and asking for video to be maintained, I think that effectively crosses the threshold contemplated by Chaulk.

Update: Read the specific warning to Counselor Velella on 26 May 2009:

Dear Attorney Velella:

Don't forget the express representation from your Chinatown branch that they would honor the check when Mr. Gillenwater got his new State I.D. card.

They then reneged on that promise, all of which should be stored in your video vault.

KingCast sunset..... "Is it Pompeii or Boston?"

Zoom zoom zoom. First three photos unretouched and shot at 'landscape' setting on Canon SX20 IS. Sorry, no time for tripod when I saw that come into view I had to be on it in a nanosecond. Seriously, 30 seconds after I shot it, it was gone daddy gone.

Hey KingCast what's shakin' tonight you Dangerous Black Man?

Oh, not much... just a Post Hearing Brief in King v. Citibank and some perfectly-seared Rosemary & pepper infused panko tuna with mushroom noodles and Chinese chives & spinach, quail egg garnish.....and a nice Polish beer 'cos my IP lawyer is Polish and he's a chill pup, and 'cos it's indigenous to the 'hood....hmmm.... hmmmm... yummy in my tummy :)

KingCast presents: The Citibank Defense.... "You were sarcastic when you asked to open a bank account." Watch for the Post Hearing Brief.

Sooooo.... An excerpt from the Post Hearing Brief, when in doubt bring in the minority lawyer to defend discrimination cases..... Today at hearing Respondent’s counsel said that Citibank’s history of proved lies and deceit were not relevant, yet it was Citibank who started this dirty game by referencing items in my past back to 1996, and that’s a FACT.
It’s their Modus Operandi, as noted by several legal bloggers. Do whatever you can to stain the victim, just ask Madison Square Garden victims Courtney Prince and Anucha Browne Sanders:

Writes one lawyer at Main Street U.S.A. blog, 19 April 2007.
Kind of a come hither photo for a law firm bio, no? People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Rodriguez is a fifth year lawyer with an impressive pedigree (Yale, Columbia Law), but not a lot of experience to be the lead lawyer in a high-profile case. I wonder if she is the lead attorney on the case? Or is she just being used to put out the smear so the big name partner who is handling the case doesn't have to get his/her hands dirty? Is MSG using a woman (and a minority) as window dressing? I handled many sex discrimination cases where young female lawyers were included on the defense team for that very reason.

Today I continued to show how the teller had no credibility as well as the FACT that Manager Carlo Caramanna definitely exercised his authority to be the Decision Maker to DENY me the right to open a bank account. No matter how hard Citibank tries, they cannot make that go away.

Respondent Citibank raised Derrick Gillenwater when they wanted to, in order to say that the bank offered him to open an account. But I said hey if you bring him in penny you bring him in dollar and he clearly says that Citibank reneged on the promise to cash his check when he got updated ID. This means that local Counsel Benjamin Vellela is a complete liar too, as shown in the movie. Then they say "This is the first time we've heard that Derrick Gillenwater was reacting to another statement when he said "watch your back."

Well that's not my fault that the scumbags at the bank didn't tell their counsel what really happened. We'll get there in Superior Court if necessary.

Lastly as to the allegation that I was "sarcastic" about opening an account, I said I was snippy or somewhat sarcastic to the extent that Carlo Carmanna had already threatened to arrest me when he picked up the phone. They can't get away from that as we move toward Superior Court I will subpoena that video, and when a Jury looks at my body language they will know I was not creating the disturbance that Citibank alleges. And as noted, how sarcastic was I really being, considering:

a) all of my hard work in getting ACL/Proskauer to review the case;
b) asked Carla Caramanna for the name and card of his supervisor.

Their position is so absurd, they acknowledge that I asked for the card but why on Earth would I ask for such a thing unless I meant business about opening an account? Citibank is trying to stand common sense on its head, once again. How can Morgan Lewis Attorneys keep their heads up as they try to defend this case? Melissa Rodriguez seems to be having a tough time at it, photographed in an open lobby, not in a hearing.


KingCast says, "Support the Martin Luther King Washington Memorial!!!"

Take a look http://mlkmemorialnews.org/ They are only a few million short of the $120M goal, so do what you can!

KingCast says "Goodnight, Dr. Height."

There is much going on right now but I would be remiss not to give her daps..... I was looking for an old BW picture I took of her in Cincinnati but not finding that I'll just post a stock image. Thank you for the inspiration my Civil Rights Sister!

KingCast says "Happy Birthday Liko Kenney."

We still got your back, Man. Totally.

On Casey's end with the movie there's still no consensus as to who should be you. I'll talk to your father about it today and see if he has any suggestions. Also, Martha McLeod is a royal jerk, she's all pissed-off because I called her hubby on the mat in the Jig is Up post.

KingCast tells legislative loser and waste product Martha McLeod: I will sue your ass for Defamation. Wait for it.

Miss Martha, you published the following comment to third parties:

"I was personally subjected to threats of physical and sexual violence by members of this community and their supporters, like Chris King, the last time this bill was debated."

Sexual violence, what about Bruce McKay and his Penis-shaped knife and the 10 page complaint from Ms. B (see item 13) that Chief Montminy and Selectmen ignored. Was your hubby a Selectman then? Was he a Selectman when Angela McKay filed for that Restraining Order? Did you try to help her?

You are a deceitful, despicable legislator and I will sue you for Defamation. You put up or shut up. If you had any such threats from me you would have come after me like your idiot friend Kelly Ayotte, who tried and FAILED.

Also you told a lie about State Rep Gionet, maybe he'll sue your ass too.

That's all you need to know right now, I will publish the full text of your tirade later. I don't know who you think you're [expletive deleted] with, but you are one Bad Apple, a rotten pig, and we're not the two and I'm not the one. You're all pissed-off because I called your hubby on the mat in the Jig is Up post.

KingCast, NAACP and NYSE present: Final Citibank is Racist video.

Sooo.....I keep remembering things that make me laugh, such as the fact that Sam Shaulson and Citibank call me unprofessional, yet the NYSE welcomed me with open arms last week while the same institution fined Citigroup $1M. When I finish this short film I'll get to work on the America SCORES short film. This final video will go up some time late tomorrow, then I'll press up scores of DVDs and send them off to all of Sam Shaulson and Morgan Lewis' opposing counsel from now until the day I die. It's a Free Country, that's an exercise of the First Amendment, and heck seeing as Sam thinks his clients and he have done no wrong they will appreciate the free publicity. Even though he clearly lied about the fact that the Decision Maker in my particular case was not a female, black, but rather a male, Caucasian, one Carlo Caramanna.

Here is the rough cut. Meanwhile you can read all about the NAACP racism lawsuit and the NYSE fines right here.

You can't lie on me and get away with it guys.

KingCast says KZ900 or 650R, Kawasaki still lets the Good Times roll!

Sooo... This is B's bike, a '76 ('73 was the first year).... I wrote about such a machine in this post, B watch the H1 two-stroke wheelie video, LOL. His bike is a Real World machine. It's no trailer queen and it's got its share of issues in the carb & compression arenas.... Whether he keeps it or not I hope somebody takes care of the Old Girl. It was the start of an era. I don't count the '69 Honda 750 so much because this bike totally eclipsed it, although the Honda clearly ushered in the modern era of OHC multi-cylinder machines. But I still like two strokes "more" in a sense. Hell all this bike talk, I gotta' go for a ride after my afternoon siesta, prolly head over to the tennis club.

KingCast: We do what we want to do. It's a Free Country, right.

KingCast again asks Deval Patrick and Marybeth Heffernan, "where are my documents on the cost of the Harshbarger Report?"

Soooo...... I have been monitoring my neighbor's buckeye tree this spring, this succession of photos was about a 10-day spread, love it. I'll be adding photos during the day. While I would consider myself somewhat of an athlete, and while I certainly did my share of tailgating in Columbus, sports are more Cousin Mike's thing than mine. As for me, the name of the blog is the name of the game, I thought you knew.
