Update for 1/21/12: The Reply Brief

On 11/23/12 attorney Bruce Leichty filed Ellen Mariani’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the US Supreme Court.  (Click here to read it.)  We subsequently decided that a Reply Brief should be filed on behalf of Ellen Mariani.  That Reply Brief was filed on 1/8/13 and it is now available for viewing.  (Click here to read it.)

Initial fund-raising efforts of the Committee were devoted to raising sufficient funds toward the attorney’s fees and costs of the filing of the Petition ($13,629 raised, on a goal of $11,000).   Attorneys for John Ransmeier then filed an optional Opposition Brief.  (Click here to read it.)  The Ellen Mariani Legal Defense Fund, and Ellen Mariani and Bruce Leichty, extend sincere thanks to two new donors who very generously contributed to make the filing of a Reply Brief possible, J. O. of Australia and E. W. of Canada.   (There was also a smaller donation from another source.)  The goal of the Committee for the Reply Brief, at the request of Bruce Leichty, was to raise $2,500 to cover costs and some attorney’s fees, and that goal was met.

The Supreme Court’s docket for Ellen’s case (click here to view) indicates that the briefs have been distributed to the justices and that they will have a conference on 2/15/13.  Now we wait for them to make a decision.  (Note: the fact that the justices will be discussing Ellen’s case at a conference does not imply anything about the likelihood of the petition being granted.)

  1. I would be useful for Ellen Marinari’s legal counsel to read the book CLOAK AND GAVEL
    written by attorney Alec Charns see summary of the book here

    The book details the FBI illegal phone tapping of the US Supreme Court and working behind the scenes to have Justices appointed to the Supreme Court that reflect the views of the Military-Industrial complex.

    From 1988-2002 I helped organize a annual conference looking at crimes committed by FBI agents.
    It was held at Bates College for 11 years co-sponsored by Professor Steve Hochstadt of the History Department.
    Between 1994 through 2002 we presented evidence for FBI agents creating the Oklahoma City bombing and the 1993 1st World Trade Center bombing.
    During this time we brought the following people to speak about these events.

    Hoppy Heidelberg-member of the OKC bombing Grand Jury
    Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key whose legislative district included Oklahoma City.
    Dr Frederick Whitehurst FBI Lab whistlbower

    • Thank you for your very interesting post. I did not know about this stuff but I can tell you it does not surprise me much. Also, I note that although the book review seems to indicate that the thrust of the FBI’s monitoring and manipulation of the court was to prevent liberal leanings, the same manipulation and control could be used to aim the court in any other direction desired by the FBI and the powers that be as well. I brought your comment to Bruce Leichty’s attention.
