JUDGE THROWS AMERICAN PATROL SUIT OUT OF COURT
Outrageous ruling says Times killing of Villaraigosa
ad was "free speech"
| JUDGES RULING DICTATED
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Emilie
H. Elias tossed out lawsuit
brought by American Patrol against the L.A. Times and Daily
News claiming it was intended to "chill the valid exercise
of the constitutional rights of freedom of speech and petition
for the redress of grievances." (California
Code of Civil Procedures 425.16. (a))
EMILIE H. ELIAS (Times
disqualified first judge as biased.)

|WE ARE IN DANGER
This outrageous ruling is a
clear demonstration just how lawless our nation
has become. The L.A. Times sought to stifle
the free speech of American Patrol, not the other way
around! A casual reading of the SLAPP
law shows just how insane this ruling is. Our
filing with the court proves it.
Each and every time anyone seriously threatens
the established power structure over immigration issues, they
are slapped down. Proposition 187 was killed by an illegal act
Gov. Davis, following an outrageous ruling by a federal
The L.A. Times is a tyrannical organization.
It does not permit dissension. It owns the Los Angeles Superior
Court system. It was so desperate to keep this suit out of
court, it persuaded a judge to violate the constitution.
We are all in danger.

P.S. We will appeal.
In papers filed with the court, the Times and Daily News admitted
that the Times threatened legal action against the Daily News
if it printed our ad. The
Daily News admitted that it had approved our ad and that
it was only the Times' threat that killed it. The claim of copyright
infringement issue was bogus and the court never ruled on it.
