Full Disclosure Network(R) Video Reports
WASHINGTON, April 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the application for a “Stay of Execution” (of civil contempt sentence) for jailed attorney Richard I. Fine who has never been charged with or convicted of a crime but has been held in solitary “coercive confinement” in L.A. County Central Men’s jail for over a year. Fine attempted to disqualify L.A. Superior Court Judge David Yaffe for having accepted illegal payments from L.A. County, a party to the case before him, and who ordered him held “indefinitely,” without bail, hearing date or release date.
In their conference hearing, on April 23, 2010, the Justices refused to dismiss Fine’s Writ of Certiorari (appeal) that was before the full panel. The court record can be found at the U. S. Supreme Court website in the case No. 09-1250 Richard I. Fine vs. Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy D. Baca.
RESPONSE RICHARD I. FINE FROM JAIL TELEPHONE:
“I cannot believe that they denied my application as it violates U.S. Supreme Court Precedent of the release of William T. Farr by Justice Douglas in the same situation in 1974. However I am encouraged that they did not dismiss my appeal, which indicates that I will win the appeal.”
“The reply response from L.A. County Sheriff Baca is due on May 17, 2010 unless he waives his right to respond. The Sheriff has never opposed my Writ of Habeas Corpus in this case.” Read Full Response Here: http://tinyurl.com/38gn2wc
CITIZEN PROTESTS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE:
Fred Sottile, a volunteer Co-Chair of the “Free Richard Fine Committee” (FRF) reacted to the news by saying…
“We are going to continue protesting and the committee will continue to broadcast the truth in our world-wide search for patriots who will stand up for a Constitutional America.”
