There are some wildly stupid things being said on the Sonoran Conservative blog, operated by Marvin J. Rodriguez of Peoria, AZ, owner of MJROD Business Consulting Services.
Let’s set the record straight — for once.
In the past, I have attempted to get justice from several people for publishing false and defamatory information about me.
In 2014, I filed suit against WJJ Hoge III and several others in the US District Court for the District of Maryland. The day after filing, I filed a motion to dismiss the suit.
In Feb. 2015, I filed suit against WJJ Hoge III and Eric Johnson in the US District Court for the District of Maryland. That case was dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction.
I filed suit in the US District Court for the District of Maryland against Patrick Grady (Paul Krendler) and several others. The case was dismissed on my request in August 2015 when I decided to move from Maryland to Wisconsin after my wife Gail died in June 2015.
I filed suit against Eric Johnson and Sarah Palmer in the US District Court for the District of Eastern Wisconsin. That case was dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction in July 2016.
I filed suit against Patrick Grady and Sarah Palmer in the US District Court for the District of Northern Illinois. That case was dismissed at my request in Sept. 2016 after the court-assigned attorney decided it was too much of a small-potatoes case to bother with.
A year ago, I filed suit against Grady, Johnson and others in the US District Court for the District of South Carolina. That case was dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction.
So, that’s six federal lawsuits… three dismissed at my request, three dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction.
In February 2015, I tried suing Hoge in Howard County Circuit Court. That case was dismissed for improper venue as I lived in Howard County, MD, and Hoge lived in Carroll County.
Those are the only cases I have filed (unless I’m missing something that is not on the PACER or Maryland Judiciary website). Seven lawsuits, four dismissed for jurisdictional issues, three dismissed at my request.
ON THE OTHER HAND…
Hoge brought nearly 400 criminal charges against me for violating his bogus peace order. (The snowflake was horrified by my using an “@” in front of his name on Twitter.) Of all those cases, all were dismissed except one, which went to trial and I was found not guilty.
Hoge filed a copyright infringement suit against me in 2014. I filed a counter suit. Hoge asked for $640,000. He got nothing as the case was dismissed in arbitration.
Hoge sued me last year. The judge ruled against him. Hoge went sniveling to the judge asking him to reconsider. The judge booted him out of the courtroom.
(Funny how the stalker trolls never mention the number of times Hoggy tried exacting a lawfare pound of flesh only to be sent away a LOSER.)
SO WHAT HAVE I LEARNED FROM THIS EXPERIENCE?
The biggest obstacle to overcome is jurisdiction. If I am ever going to sue anyone for spreading the false (and ridiculous) charge that I am faking having Parkinson’s disease, I have to do so in the defendant’s home court. Or, I will have to do so in a Federal Court where one of the defendants lives in that jurisdiction. Arizona or Illinois, for instance. As an alternative, a lawsuit in Federal Court would need to be filed in a district with jurisdiction over the issue, assuming that the defendants’ actions somehow affected someone other than myself in that jurisdiction. Such as sending false information to a radio station owner in Iowa causing that radio station to withdraw a job offer.
WHATEVER WILL I DO?
Oh, look! Here are some pictures of me faking Parkinson’s disease.
TALK ABOUT YOUR DEDICATION TO A BIT??? If Marvin J. Rodriguez of Peoria, AZ, owner of MJROD Business Consulting Services, Inc., is correct, that would mean I had to fool a carload of neurologists, a neurosurgeon, a neuropsychiatrist, the Office of Personnel Management and the Social Security Administration.
See the probes in my head there? Those are the final stimulator leads. Before those were implanted, the surgeon inserted “listening probes” that pick up the sounds of neurons firing. That’s how they know where to insert the final probes, by zeroing in on the two subthalamic nuclei in the brain where the movement neurons are misfiring. DAMN, the hours of patient practicing, forcing those neurons to MISFIRE just so FOUR YEARS LATER I could convince the government to give me a disability retirement so I could trim my take-home pay by almost 2/3 just because I was too lazy to be bothered to go to work every day.
THERE’S THE LOGIC anyone who cares to insist that I am faking this will have to stand by. I worked like a BEAST to condition my brain to learn how to misfire ON DEMAND, so I could undergo this dangerous surgery just so that four years after the fact I could cut my salary from a GS-13 rate to a disability retirement rate of approximately 1/3 of what I had been receiving. That’s some REAL HARD WORK for someone who just wants to nurse at the government teat, wouldn’t you say?
But if the Stalker Trolls have confidence that I can’t prove I actually have been living with Parkinson’s since 2000, and they think they can prove their stupid, juvenile, mostly (but not all) anonymous allegations?
