GUESS WHO lobbied Ricky to "scare" the "Lenz/Zimmer gang" with "legal intervention"



GUESS WHO pitched a defamation lawsuit directly to Ricky Mason in 2010  to "stop lies"  that "mislead voters" which "help Dawn and hurt Beth."

According to GUESS WHO, the so-called "lies" were posted on Hoboken Revolt, and the lawsuit was pitched against "Donna, Kurt and others who post[ed] "felon" comments and articles under their own names."

GUESS WHO warned Ricky Mason:
 "...unless you take drastic measures, this is only going to get worse as we head into the 2011 races.... the only thing that will force the Lenz/Zimmer gang to stop their consant slander is legal action... They are working hard to remove Beth from the council and from any capacity in local government, and they have a lot of converts who buy into the Zimmer/Lenz lies... Lenz and team are not deterred by response letters in published newspapers... it doesn't scare them into stopping their destructive behavior."
GUESS WHO was pitching political discourse as "destructive behavior/slander/lies", and "legal intervention" to "scare them" silent.

In other words, GUESS WHO was proposing that Ricky Mason file a SLAPP suit.
A strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) is a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. 
Start reading the Bajardi v Pincus email below from the bottom (where it says "Start Here") and work your way up.


Information collecting.... the desire to inflict pain... the desire to use litigation to shut down political discourse on matters of public interest and public concern... all of these elements are coming to light as GA and others cull through voluminous discovery emails.

Questions are arising.

How much behind-the-scenes influence did "GUESS WHO" have in the execution of the 2012 SLAPP suit, when two years earlier she pitched nearly same plot to Ricky Mason?

Bajardi v Pincus emails provide a reasonable basis to ask how involved  GUESS WHO was in the planning and implementation of the SLAPP suit.

GA can confirm GUESS WHO was behind one of the Bajardis' damages claims.  Lane Bajardi wrote, in his interrogatories:
"...I also believe that my young son was not invited to return to the Stevens Cooperative School because certain decision-makers there viewed the many disparaging statements about me and Kimberly online. A copy of the letter informing me that my son would not be invited to return to Stevens is also being produced contemporaneously. Kimberly and I were considering pursuing adoption in 2011, but we had to stop because Ms. Pincus’ statements regarding DYFS made this impossible...."
Here is what Lane Bajardi said under oath at his deposition regarding his claim individual bloggers were responsible for his son not being readmitted to Stevens Cooperative School.


You follow?

There is no doubt, all who have been dragged through nearly 4 years of punishing, frivolous litigation have been grievously harmed. 

GA and others have a pressing interest in identifying all parties responsible for its planning and execution, what their roles were, and if they benefited from it, financially or otherwise, in any way.

    1. Agreed!!! It seems like the SLAPP-Back may just end up whacking quite a few people in the face.

  5. Richard G. Mason
    Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz

    Really ?
    I still can't fathom why he used his firm's email to converse about this stuff.

    1. My guess is he's a partner/owner in the firm and knows that his IT group isn't watching his emails, or he has limited or no access to gmail from work so he has to use work email to communicate.

      I know that where I work the people who think they're indispensable to the company act like they own it and do what they want when they want. I doubt he's any different.

  6. I would argue the shit job Mason did, her nasty attitude and the absolute scummy way she ran her year round anti-reform campaign is what "removed" Mason from politics. Face it Ricky, you guys just stink and there isn't enough money in the world to make the smell go away.

  7. In my opinion, Ricky's libel lawyer told him Beth was a public figure and hyperbole, insults, etc were fair comment. No case. So they found a regular "Hoboken couple" to front their dream lawsuit only their regular couple were seasoned political operatives and the dream lawsuit was a political operation underwritten by a third party. I hear the refused to provide financial information- bank statements, credit card records, legal invoices,etc for 2013 when the case kicked into high gear. I hear the court has ordered all of that stuff and those records from the attorneys so the financial forensics can be done. I suppose one thing may lead to another.

    1. Would guess you are correct. But would Ricky tell the senior partners at Wachtell? I bet they don't have a clue what's going on.

  8. I don't know if guess who's behavior is protected from a SLAPP-back. Maybe yes maybe no. She'll make an entertaining witness. Make sure you film her deposition so you can post the excerpts later.

  9. My guess is that Sara has no exposure just from saying you really ought to hire a lawyer and sue those guys and then rooting for her noxious team. The only way she should have exposure is if she helped fund the lawsuit - and who knows if she did that - maybe this was a true team effort. She seems sufficiently consumed with hate to be willing to write a check for what she clearly considered a worthy cause.

    These e-mails certainly make her a key witness. If the Bajardis had written this stuff themselves they'd be toast in a SLAPP back - the trick will be attributing Sara's stated political motivation in suggesting the lawsuit to the twins.

    1. Can probably be deposed about the Genesis and motives of the slapp. She's the douche-whisperer of Team Beth.

    2. Agreed Sara is a witness in the SLAPP back. If she doesn't cooperate the court will enforce.

  11. Does anyone know who this witch, Sara S, is? Does anyone know if she dares to show her face in public since these emails have come to light? Who would associate with her? The emails indicate, to me, a very dark and disturbed person, someone with whom I would never want to associate.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sara is on my list. She thinks it's funny that my sister's home was destroyed. I don't know her personally, but, some day we'll run into eachother. And I'll let her know exactly how I feel. Come find me Sara!

  13. Calling her a witch offends me.

    I'm a witch (Wiccan Priestess actually) and seeing I word I proudly call myself used derogatorily is insulting. Just like some gay or Jewish would dislike seeing gay or Jew used as slur.

    Just letting folks know I I feel.

    2. Witches are not a legitimate minority status

      Delete
    3. 7:22, even if you were right, and even if there was such a thing as a legitimate minority (Who decides what group is legitimate? Where does one pick up an application?), does someone really have to be a member of a minority group in order to be treated with respect and courtesy? If Taith is bothered, shouldn't that be enough reason to choose a different insult to call someone? Maybe we could even dispense with the insults altogether. The truth is bad enough. Calling Sarah S. a bitch is just gilding the lily.

    5. Unless you are an atheist, belittling someone else's religion this way makes you a hypocrite.

      If you are an atheist and like to pick on people of faith, you are just being mean.

    6. One of the many problems in this country is that we are too pc. So to the point of Anon 7:59am on Jun e 25, sorry but no, witches aren't a protected class and quite frankly, I would guess that almost everyone who uses the term derogatorily is trying to avoid calling someone a b---- & thinking of the green faced, pointy hat type. Now, if that's how Wiccans dress, I apologize for the insult. But I've never seen Taith walking around dressed in that garb, so I'm guessing that halloween costume witch vs wiccan witch is a different thing.

      And witch isn't alternatively used for the term "wiccan priestess" when insulting people. In other words, people don't go around calling bitches "oh you wiccan priestess" to avoid saying bitch. They say, "oh you witch."

      If anyone should be offended, it's Glinda.

    7. Lets forgo political correctness for a moment and consider empathy and kindness?

      Fighting against political correctness sounds more like folk not wanting to accept personal responsibility. Insult someone, they will respond. Folks have the freedom to be insulting, but there are consequences.

      For ages (less today than 20 years ago) people would calla straight guy gay f@got to insult them. Do you know how that made real gay men feel? I do, because they told me.

      I don't give a hoot about protected classes. I care about treating folk with respect. Calling out bad behaviour without insulting whole groups of people.

    8. "Lets forgo political correctness for a moment and consider empathy and kindness?"

      Thank you, Taith, I could not agree more with this statement. The term "PC" has been co-oped for other purposes, how about we all just be respectful and considerate of others. If you believe in karma, then you've seen how being disrespectful has backfired on Team Mason.

    9. Calling someone who is a bitch a witch is nowhere near the level of insult of using a well known derogatory term aimed at a homosexual, or a black person, or a Latino etc.

      Wiccan is your religion, and while I personally put that on the level of scientology, I'm not thinking of wiccan when I call someone a witch.

      A society that changes and caters to every special interest group is a not much of a melting pot.

      Delete
    10. @snoopy, chill out, will ya? no one is saying needs to "change/cater to every special interest group", that's a total straw man argument. i'm just saying the world would be a better place if we were all a little kinder and empathetic towards one another and a little less judgmental.

    12. Snoopy,

      Who gets to decide what hurts my feelings, me or you?

      I know they are only hurt feelings, and far worse can be done to folk.

      I know people that are witches or Wiccans who have suffered far worse.

      Back the 80's I knew someone who received death threats and had black cat killed and hung on her door with a butchers knife. That was after the 700 club published her address.

      In the 90's I helped raise money for some that was attacked because of her faith. That case made news, Google Darla Kaye Wynne.

      I did what I could (contacting poloitians, petitions etc) for families of fallen Pagans who wanted the Pentagram on the military headstone. https://www.circlesanctuary.org/index.php/lady-liberty-league/the-story-of-the-veteran-pentacle-quest

      Or how about this, http://www.abcactionnews.com/news/region-pasco/pagan-witch-says-her-home-was-targeted

      Now once again, who gets to decide how using witch as an insult makes me feel?

      You have every right to continue using it as an insult, and I have every right now that you have read this to consider you an inconsiderate jerk for doing so.

      Delete
    13. I generally type bitch when I want to get my point across. But you're right, only you can decide what hurts your feelings. And if being called a witch somehow does it, that's totally your call. Just like it's ok for me to say that's completely, patently absurd. We can agree to disagree. And the safe space police will agree with you, while the "we choose not to participate in the theater of the absurd" will agree with me.

      Delete
    14. Witch said with respect or pride is fine, witch used as an insult hurts feelings and has hurt some folk physically.

      I don't follow blindly the idea of "safe space". But I will defend myself, my faith and my community.

      I will also try to explain why I feel the way I do. My sensitivity is not abstract. The examples I posted are not abstract. That I know people that had pets killed because folk think all witches are wicked.

      Daria's attackers the wicked ones.

      Delete
    15. Taith,
      Words don't physically hurt anyone. No one should physically violate anyone else. No one attacked you, your faith or your community in calling Sarah or Beth a witch. In fact, you went out of your way to let US know that it was insulting to YOU as a Wicca High Priestess.

      Your sensitivity is your drama queen nature. I remember your posts under your old screen name. You let us know you were engaged to a woman before you married your husband among other tantalizing glimpses into your life. You're a drama queen.

    16. A couple of points
      1. Nobody is going to stop using the term witch when referring to certain people. It is not only a perfectly normal term used in everyday language, the use of the term exists in that specific context exists in thousands of movies, TV shows, books, magazines, etc... Deal with it.
      2. If you don't want people infringing on your "safe zone" in the context of discussing whatever beliefs you have, then STFU already about those beliefs instead of getting all melodramatic
      BTW, you aren't really a witch unless you weigh the same as a duck (at least according to Monte Python's Holy Grail)

  15. I've no love for describing society as a melting pot.

    Take a put put in some curry, beef stroganoff, shepard's pie, hominy, just keep adding with every culture, then stir.

    Would you eat that?

    I like the idea of quilt. You can still the beauty of each culture as it is stitched into functional whole.

  16. Posting tired... A whole statement got dropped.

    I know people who were first verbally attacked for being witches, then had their homes violated, pets killed, were attacked. The physical attacks were always preceded by verbal.

    I don't see being open and un-closeted as being dramatic. My openness was not done to tantalise, just open acceptance of myself and refusal to hide any of it.

    Do the details other people's relationships tantalise you?

    I'm just priestess, not a high priestess, yet.

  17. Taith, since I started this off with my comment (yes, I am taking ownership of the shit storm that the comment created) about the "witches" who wrote these disturbing e-mails, I will just say that you are being bitchy about being witchy. Seems to me that this thread has been highjacked by all of this melodramatic nonsense. Just read the damn emails again and recall how this got started - some real idiotic and moronic women writing venomous and vile things about people expressing their intention to do major economic harm to, and trample on the first amendment rights of, people who did not support Queen Mason. What pigs. And now I have gone and offended all of the pig farmers of the world.

  18. FYI, the term "drama queen" is a an insult. It's been discussed here in GA comments in the past.
