Chuck C. Johnson Fails to Show Up in CA for Suit Against Gawker, Is Ordered to Show Cause

Everything is going according to the Rage Furby’s master plan
Law • Views: 68,387

As we noted back in December, discredited far right blogger Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME) filed an amazingly ill-advised defamation lawsuit against Gawker in the Fresno Superior Court, submitting an almost exact copy of the document he filed in Missouri (for a case that was thrown out of court) without changing anything.

Facebook Post

Today we checked the Fresno Superior Court website to see where things stood, and Chuck failed to appear for the hearing scheduled on April 11, and also apparently failed to serve Gawker’s representatives.

They waited on him until 2:13 pm for a 1:30 case management conference, then scheduled an Order to Show Cause hearing for him to explain why he shouldn’t be sanctioned.

No doubt, Johnson will claim this was all part of his master plan (as he always does), but it looks like he may have gotten himself into hot water by just blowing this whole thing off and wasting the court’s time. We can only hope.

Here’s the Order to Show Cause document; he’s ordered to appear in person on June 16 to explain why he shouldn’t be sanctioned.

Notice that the court is also asking Johnson to explain why “Got News LLC is in pro per” — in other words, why Johnson is representing himself without an attorney. In California an LLC cannot represent itself and must have legal counsel. So he’s also potentially looking at sanctions for violating this statute.

Not that it bothers me one way or the other, but the very end of the document seems to have his home address on it. Is there any way to to redact that?

Of course, since it’s a public document, I guess it doesn’t really make a difference.

Yeah, I’m not a real strong believer of CCJ getting his ass handed to him by the legal system. Just my opinion, even as nasty as he is, he doesn’t have Bundy Family-level notoriety.

To put it bluntly, the judges just don’t give a shit. He’s not a big enough target for them to waste energy on, despite the fact he keeps thumbing his nose at them. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I’m having a hard time coming to any other explanation.

I know justice grinds slow, blah, blah, blah. But let’s face it; sometimes the bad guy gets away with it. That’s pretty much what we’re seeing here.

Well, the police in Murfreesboro, Tenn. had the time to arrest five 6-10 year olds (and put them in handcuffs) for not breaking up a fight in progress.

dnj.com

150 parents objected in a meeting in a church that was attended by the police chief.

Parents and community members sharply criticized the arrests of the students. They were taken into custody after they did not intervene in an incident that took place in their neighborhood, the parents said.

“This is nonsense, and it is nonsense in the fullest definition,” Crawford said.

A video was taken of the incident and officers later obtained arrest warrants for students who did not break up the disturbance, McConnell said in an interview before the Sunday meeting. Information about who took the video and how the police obtained it were not made clear Sunday.

Leaving aside the police for a moment, what I want to know is what the Hell a judge was thinking in granting the police those arrest warrants.

Another “accidental” shooting:

Man fatally shot while photographing people firing guns in Sutton

Alaska Dispatch News
April 18, 2016

An Anchorage man was shot and killed Saturday while filming or photographing people firing guns in Sutton, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Troopers said in a Monday dispatch that they were informed that 30-year-old Adam C. Malaby had been shot at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, at a location near Jonesville Mine Road. First responders arrived to find people performing CPR on Malaby.

“Investigation revealed Malaby had stepped in the line of fire while attempting to video or photograph others shooting and was shot by another individual that was firing a .40 caliber pistol,” troopers wrote.

According to troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain, the incident — which appeared to be accidental — did not occur at a formally designated shooting range in Sutton. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people had been firing guns at the time.

“The area where they were shooting in is an area commonly used as a shooting range,” DeSpain said.

Malaby was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, where he was declared dead. His next of kin have been notified.

Troopers said the shooting remains under investigation.

Before I head off to class, I wanted to drop this off. I was poking around California statutes to see what sanctions Chuck might be facing.

Rule 2.30

(b) Sanctions

In addition to any other sanctions permitted by law, the court may order a person, after written notice and an opportunity to be heard, to pay reasonable monetary sanctions to the court or an aggrieved person, or both, for failure without good cause to comply with the applicable rules. For the purposes of this rule, “person” means a party, a party’s attorney, a witness, and an insurer or any other individual or entity whose consent is necessary for the disposition of the case. If a failure to comply with an applicable rule is the responsibility of counsel and not of the party, any penalty must be imposed on counsel and must not adversely affect the party’s cause of action or defense thereto.

(Subd (b) amended effective January 1, 2007; adopted as untitled subdivision effective January 1, 1985; amended and relettered effective July 1, 2001; previously amended effective January 1, 1994, and January 1, 2004.)

(d) Award of expenses

In addition to the sanctions awardable under (b), the court may order the person who has violated an applicable rule to pay to the party aggrieved by the violation that party’s reasonable expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, incurred in connection with the motion for sanctions or the order to show cause.

(Subd (d) amended effective January 1, 2007; adopted effective July 1, 2001; previously amended effective January 1, 2004.)

courts.ca.gov

Since it seems Gawker had an attorney present at the hearing, Chuck could then be compelled to reimburse Gawker for the attorney’s fees and expenses, plus reimburse the court for any personnel who also attended the hearing. Maybe some local lizards can find out what such expenses might total.

I don’t think so, if their attorney were present they’d have been noted on Page 1 under “Appearing Parties.” They didn’t have to show up because Chuck never even attempted to serve notice on any of the defendants. The Judge could sanction him for failure to attempt service as well but didn’t check that particular box and seems to be holding that back for now. Judge is probably waiting until the court can ask Chuck under oath if he ever even tried to serve notice.

goddamnedfrank  Apr 18, 2016 • 10:22:22pm

Notice the last thing he has to explain is why an LLC is in pro per. Odds that in trying to be super smart essentially admits alter ego liability? Oh, let’s say 1:10… yeah 1:10 not 10:1, 1:10. Because no sane book would take that big a liability.

wheat-dogghazi-mailgate  Apr 18, 2016 • 10:51:18pm

Chuck should have googled this website: avvo.com

Civil litigants are deemed to have the same knowledge of a lawyer. “Ignorantia juris neminem excusat”- Ignorance of law is no excuse. Although Judges tend to be lenient and may give a second cahance,it can prove costly. For example, if the opponent’s lawyer has propounded Request for Admission of certain facts to you, under California Code of Civil Procedure,Section 2033 a responding party has 30 days to respond to the Request extended by five calendar days if mailed. If the party obligated to respond fails due to lack of procedural knowledge, the propounding party can file a motion to seek the facts admitted and obtain a favorable result in the case.

Here lies just a single example a pro se litigant may face. If you are a pro se litigant in a Civil Case you need to formally familarize yourself with the Code of Civil Procedure and local rules.

He’s been too busy writing shit about Michelle Fields to worry about mere civil procedures.

The posted article was all I could find. It was at a local area where locals go to shoot. Was not at an organized firing range. One of the commentators posted that the victim was active duty military. More info should be posted over the next few days. I’ll update if I find more info.

Teenager shot in shoulder by 42-year-old man while playing with water guns in Spring

HOUSTON - A 15-year-old girl was in the hospital Saturday after deputy constables said a 42-year-old man shot her at a family barbecue in Spring.

“It was crazy, like you would never expect somebody to bring a gun to a barbecue, or a family gathering at all,” said neighbor Micah Stewart.

“We come around here to get home and there’s two people playing, like they’re having a water gun fight,” said neighbor Rasheed Seals.

But deputy constables said somehow a real gun got in the mix.

“The man went over there to his car to get his dry clothes and he must have had the gun so he started playing with it and tried to do this and I thought he probably had it on safety and he accidentally shot the girl in her collar bone area,” said Stewart.

On Living After Accidentally Killing Someone

Make sure your gun is empty. I — assuming that it completely was — pointed it off to my side, not down to the ground as one should, and pulled the trigger. And instead, it in fact had not shot. And it hit my brother who was standing right next to me. He fell dead.

lawhawk  Apr 19, 2016 • 5:13:17am

I seem to recall that this wasn’t even the proper court in CA to be filing in, due to diversity jurisdiction and/or the amount of damages requested.

Superior Court allows filings under $25,000 to be entered without an attorney (for personal cases, not those involving corporate). For those over $25,000, there’s a list of pro bono attorneys to assist.

Since Chucky’s filed on behalf of a LLC, he’d need a lawyer. Moreover, by even entertaining that he can represent the LLC without an attorney, he’s allowing an opening to pierce the corporate veil (because you know he thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room so he wont think of how he’ll be screwing himself by representing GotNews).

Then there’s the fact he filed essentially the same exact claim as he filed in MO, but signed the CA document claiming that this claim hasn’t been filed with any other court. That’s a clear lie, and there may be penalties for filing under false pretenses.

Throw in the anti-SLAPP rules, and you’ve got a world of hurt for Chucky.

It all must be going exactly to plan.

The victim Whittington mentions that he is not expecting an apology.

“He never did need to apologize. It was an accident,” he told the Daily News. “He expressed his concern about me publically, but he never had reason to apologize because we knew how seriously he was affected by it.”

Accidents are common in quail hunting, said Whittington, who hunted for 50 years without incident before the accident.

I guess the headline writer is like me, in that I would have said to Whittington, “Dude, my bad. Here is a bottle of scotch.”

There’s slim odds that he can win NY, but he can’t just win NY. He has to win by 14 points. He needs 57% to begin making up the deficit on Hillary.

All the polling shows him down by 10-18 points, depending on which poll you look at, which means he needs at least a 24 point swing.

The Bernie bros are out in force today, claiming how he’s going to win nomination, except that he can’t win by losing by double digits in all the upcoming races.

Pointing out delegate math seems to only make them angry and bitter. Or claim that I’m psychic or something.

These people are pathological. Bernie is losing in delegates, superdelegates, and popular vote.

Where is his path to 2,383 delegates. Identify how he wins the nomination when he can’t beat Hillary in delegates, superdelegates, or popular vote. Show your work.

You can’t, because it simply isn’t possible.

I’m still not a huge Clinton fan but I see Clinton as someone who can work or at least attempt to together with people regardless of ideological persuasion. I’m sad to say but I see a lot more of the Tea Party’s approach with Bernie and frankly as a liberal, I don’t want that.

That again is why I find the complaints of poor treatment by Bernie of the DNC laughable. They didn’t have to let him run. He wasn’t a Democrat just a guy who caucused with the Democrats. And frankly I think most Democratic voters agree with that given that Clinton has done much better against him with actual Democrats. But yet somehow the Bernie purer than thou legion I know insists that Bernie is the real voice of the Democratic Party and Hillary is merely a Republican. How the hell can you in good faith say that about a man who has been a Democrat for only a few months and about a man who although he never worries about re-election never takes the time to campaign to get other like-minded people elected. The problem with Bernie is frankly Bernie himself. He says the usual stuff that it’s not all about him but frankly his actions and rhetoric suggest otherwise to me.

Agreed on all three points. To be honest, I have to express my dislike of the caucuses here. Granted, I’ve never taken part in one so I have no idea what they’re like but frankly to me it seems that it’s a system that favors the loudmouth rather than someone who just wants to make their vote. Most of the time I’ve voted, I’ve known exactly who I was going to vote for that day. I don’t need a form of political peer pressure by way of a caucus frankly but if the state parties want to keep them, that is up to them I guess.

There also just isn’t much of a rationale for registering as an Independent, other than perhaps a psychological one. It’s not like party registration is used to penalize people or to invade that person’s life in some way (that I’m aware of). I guess the parties can use it to send information but usually you have to be rather proactive to get the attention of a state or local party apparatus.

Right. Caucuses limit participation since they’re so time consuming. When I vote here in VA, I’m in and out in pretty quickly. Granted I have a small precinct but the concept is simple. I go to my precinct, identify myself, get the ballot, and then I vote for the candidates and issues I want. I think that’s how voting should be.

There was a story some months back about Bernie that bothered me though. He apparently raised a ton of money for his last re-election even though he was considered a shoe in. Not knocking the money raised itself but more knocking that a popular incumbent couldn’t have helped more candidates. One thing I remember about Obama, Clinton, and even Edwards in 2008 in the years leading up to their runs for President, they did a lot of campaigning it help other Democrats get elected. Bernie doesn’t seem to value that and that frankly frustrates me to no end considering someone with an ambitious agenda like he has would need all the help in Congress he could get. As I said, he talks the usual game about how it’s not about him but I’ve seen little demonstration of that in action. It just astounds me that someone who has been in the business so long is so naive about the process. I dunno if it’s that he’s politically isolated in Vermont or it’s a personality thing but I don’t want it in a president.

Not fraud if you have reason to believe your vote is valid. We encourage mainstream Alabama Dems to vote provisionally if challenged as a means of fighting voter suppression. It’s not really a vote until adjudicated, which only happens in a very tight decision.

I wonder if the burden then falls to the voter to prove they should be registered, or they did register by the date, yada yada. In KY, after filing a provisional, you are “entitled to present evidence” to the elections official to have the vote counted.

Hmmm, the picture above the article makes it appear that Klein is referencing the Sanders campaign.

Yep. that’s how it works here. It’s a way to preserve a vote against innocent clerical screwups and deliberate ratfuckery facilitated by our voter ID law. For instance, if you don’t have the exact kind of ID specified in the law, you can vote provisionally, then show up with a chance to prove your identity.

538:It’s Far Harder To Change Parties In New York Than In Any Other State

Some of Bernie Sanders’s biggest supporters may not be able to vote for him in New York’s primary on Tuesday. Unaffiliated voters are a big share of Sanders’s support, but New York makes it hard for voters to register for a party at the last minute. For example, Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner and a Sanders supporter, can’t vote in the Democratic primary because she didn’t change her party registration in time to qualify. It’s an issue for Republicans too: Some high-profile Donald Trump supporters — or at least two of his kids — won’t be able to partake in the fun.

Twelve states and the District of Columbia have earlier deadlines to switch parties than to register for the first time…but only two of them, Kentucky and New Hampshire, had cutoffs to change parties (for those already registered with one) more than 100 days before their primary or caucus.

The system is always “broken” when the “outsider” candidate totally fails to gain any traction and ends up roadkill weeks to months before the convention. And generally those whining the loudest are the same ones who hoot and holler when the “outsider” made a big splash in a caucus or open primary, then gets blown out of the water in a closed primary by the “establishment” candidate. Closed primaries which draw whines about how “independents” can’t jump in at the last second and how “unfair” it is that the “outsider” candidates supporters didn’t do the heavy lifting months ago getting the vote out.

Records kept with the Federal Aviation Administration show the aircraft’s registration lapsed on Jan. 31. Laura J. Brown, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, confirmed that the plane’s registration was not in good standing and said the owner had not renewed it.

With few exceptions, aircraft must be registered in order to fly. Mr. Trump’s plane could be grounded for several days, or even months, while the issue is sorted out. In the event of an accident, the company that insures the plane could use the expired registration as a reason to decline any claims.

The F.A.A. could also fine or assess other penalties against the owner and/or operator; Mr. Trump owns the plane through a limited liability company. Though it is unlikely that the F.A.A. would seek the maximum penalty, flying with no registration could result in a civil penalty of up to $27,500, a criminal fine of up to $250,000 and imprisonment for up to three years, the agency said.

Attention to detail. How does that work?

re: #181 Lidane

One of the things I appreciate about Texas when it comes to voting is that we don’t have to register with a party. You can pick which primary you’re going to vote in and then you’re locked in with that party for any runoffs that happen, but otherwise you’re not stuck with a party.

The problem with an open primary is that you get people who are looking to do nothing but ratfuck candidates. I never have and wouldn’t. I know some people wanted to cross over to vote for Trump in the primary to ensure he would be the more easily beatable dem. There has been a lot of noise about GOPers doing the same to vote for Sanders. It’s a dual edged sword.

I think NY might be a tad overbearing on when someone can change registration but, hey, it’s not a new requirement. It’s not in place solely for this election and it is what it is.

A good hot sauce story though. I was at California Tortilla one day. I made the mistake of getting the Dave’s Insanity sauce and I think that’s one of the hottest hot sauces in the nation. I was pissed. Not because the hot sauce was too hot but because I had put too much hot sauce on it that my burrito was ruined. I no get sauces based on what they taste like more than just being stupid and getting hot for the sake of hot. I had some mango haberno wings that were hot but the sauce was good too.

Well, he was, but the Democrats and a bit of infighting that resulted in one of them running as an independent, and splitting the vote.

As Arizona law (since changed) allowed the candidate with the most votes to win, we got stuck with Evan Mecham, a former Pontiac dealer, to be one of the most idiotically embarrassing governors in state history. He later resigned after facing impeachment charges.

Take some solace in fact that my personal observations in STL showed that there’s tremendous racial disparity throughout the city, and that the fans are predominantly white, while the workers are predominantly black, and the inner city is very segregated (self-segregating, or intentionally through public policies stretching back decades).

This is the same region that brought us Ferguson, and that Missouri AG’s office finds that police routinely engage in racial profiling so that Ferguson is hardly an outlier.

Jimmy Johns was the one that Romney said “Just borrow money from your parents like that guy did and start a business.” I’ve never actually had one of their subs. Honestly, the best sub places are mom and pop delis. I don’t like Subway much either.

I was spoiled by S.U.B.S. in the U-District in Seattle. Now that I live way to hell and gone out of town, I’ve basically given up on subs. Hell, the Safeway deli is better than Subway.

Subway’s motto is paradoxically “Eat Fresh” I believe. Never have that vibe eating their subs. Some of the local delis here are great.

I am quite the fan of subs from Publix supermarket deli. A big part of that is their sub loaves.

Attention to detail. How does that work?

That’s good stuff! There was a Mexican restaurant I used to love to go to in Camas, WA called “Juanita’s”. Damn, that was some good food! Last time I was there would’ve been back in 2000 with a good friend of mine.

re: #316 lawhawk

Take some solace in fact that my personal observations in STL showed that there’s tremendous racial disparity throughout the city, and that the fans are predominantly white, while the workers are predominantly black, and the inner city is very segregated (self-segregating, or intentionally through public policies stretching back decades).

This is the same region that brought us Ferguson, and that Missouri AG’s office finds that police routinely engage in racial profiling so that Ferguson is hardly an outlier.

It among many others is a prime example of a Jim Crow city.

Love cholula. Although the chipotle Tabasco is not bad.

As I said, she takes a lot of shit in a way a male candidate wouldn’t. i doubt Bernie, Turmp, Kasich, or Cruz would get their dessert scrutinized. They’d probably get “Oh that looks good.”

Imagine the response if someone has asked Christie that question in the same situation.
