Day three preview:
How did the Impounded documents make it to trial and why are they relevant?
On Thursday the 30th I will be watching for impounded docs.
Meanwhile folks are watching KingCast coverage, as usual:
I have been following this case for more than five (5) years now as it involves the fullest extant of a situation in which the CEO of a multinational corporation and journalism professor at Columbia University has a substantial criminal background as an International felon out of South Africa, and has recently settled a sexual harassment lawsuit at his current place of employment, eMusic. The fact that he exerts substantial power of influence over hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions, is a matter of public interest given his public transgressions. My research further indicates that he lied about his residency in order to avoid service in the underlying case. I'll post that link today.
Interestingly, the Court held yesterday that this is not a guidelines case. But that begs the question: Can private parties ever negotiate a contractual obligation that results in payment of less than what the State guarantees as the minimal requirements for the health and welfare of the child? The answer I am told, is yes... but only with prior court approval. And why on Earth would a millionaire entertain such a notion in the first place?
I don't know, maybe perhaps he's the type of guy would would be (and is) a felon. Maybe perhaps because he is the kind of guy who, at 60, and more importantly while married, tried to smash up on eMusic underling Aimee McCoormack and ended up settling a sexual harassment lawsuit just several months ago!

The Courts, especially by and through one Spencer M. Kagan, have coddled this man and punished the mother empirically. My position as a former trial attorney is to say that the American and World Public has a right to know how the Court systems works when the rich and powerful are involved and that is precisely why I am here. eMusic follows my journal page, Chris King’s First Amendment Page and watches my videos:
