SUBJECT:  request for assistance from your Office



Dear Mayor Brown:


The San Diego Union-Tribune ran a front-page article yesterday about your plans to campaign for the office of State Attorney General.  Please accept our hearty encouragement and endorsement, simply because you will make an excellent Attorney General for California.


My activism and public interest litigation in recent years have exposed a number of pressing statewide issues which need your attention now, and definitely soon after you become our elected Attorney General for the State of California.


By way of introduction, enclosed are a few documents which you should study carefully yourself, and not merely refer to staff members for their review or summary recommendation(s).


First of all, in my copyright and trademark infringement case filed in the Federal District Court in Sacramento in the Fall of 1991, the University of California was a named Defendant.  Four attorneys in the Office of the General Counsel for the Regents attempted to appear on behalf of U.C., but all four attorneys turned up without the licenses to practice law that are required by sections 6067 and 6068 of the California Business and Professions Code.


That case reached the U.S. Supreme Court, and all named Defendants and all of their UNlicensed attorneys either fell totally silent, or they formally waived their right to answer the briefs we filed at the high Court.  Silence activates estoppel.  Carmine v. Bowen.


More recently, the Federal District Clerk in Santa Ana issued a SUBPOENA to The State Bar of California, to produce certified copies of the licenses to practice law that are required of all State Bar members during the 10-year period beginning on January 1, 1994.  The State Bar are now in contempt of court for failing properly to answer that SUBPOENA.  It appears to us that all 200,000+ State Bar members are presently in open violation of sections 6067, 6068, 6126, 6127 and 6128 of the California Business and Professions Code (read crimes).


Because their missing licenses also implicated them in mail fraud, obstruction of justice and witness retaliation –- all of which are felony federal offenses and RICO predicate acts –- I performed my legal duties under 18 U.S.C. 4 by formally charging all four of U.C.’s attorneys in a VERIFIED CRIMINAL COMPLAINT in my Civil RICO case, now pending before the Superior Court of California, docket #GIC807057.


Here is where things became extremely sticky.  In the latter Civil RICO case, once again a flock of UNlicensed attorneys have attempted to create the illusion that this case was “removed” into the U.S. District Court in Sacramento.  There, the same named Defendants have blatantly usurped jurisdiction, contrary to the original jurisdiction which the Superior Court already enjoys over Civil RICO actions.  See Tafflin v. Levitt and Lou v. Belzberg.


Since when do civil defendants have any “right” to preside on the same case in which they are named defendants?  That’s how bad things have become!


Why do I stress the criminality of pretending that the U.S. District Court in Sacramento summarily “disposed” of my Civil RICO case?  The answer to that question can be found, in part, in the enclosed copy of my summary explanation to the Oregon Attorney General’s office.


Our work has exposed what now appears to be widespread infiltration of the federal judiciary by impostors who lack the required credentials, as proven in part by confirmation letters we have received from the U.S. Department of Justice in response to our FOIA requests.


In addition to the CRIMINAL COMPLAINT mentioned above, my office has now issued CITIZEN’S ARREST WARRANTs for all of the co-conspirators, with particular emphasis on all UNlicensed attorneys who attempted to appear on behalf of any named Defendants in either lawsuit.


Those ARREST WARRANTs were addressed to the San Diego County Sheriff, with copies recently mailed to local County Sheriffs where the suspects live and work.  The Alameda County Sheriff thus received copies of our CITIZEN’S ARREST WARRANTs for the prompt apprehension and prosecution of each of the four UNlicensed attorneys in U.C.’s Office of General Counsel (see enclosed).


Mayor Brown, it should be obvious to anyone with your legal knowledge and extensive political experience, that my Right to a “day in court” -- to prosecute my Civil RICO case before a State jury of my peers -- is being systematically and now habitually obstructed by white-collar felony criminals.  These criminals should now be promptly arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of all applicable State and federal laws, on the strength of my CRIMINAL COMPLAINTs and the supporting verified affidavits on file in both court cases.


Furthermore, I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that the combined damage total in both cases, plus applicable pre-judgment interest authorized by California State law (7% APR), now exceeds eight billion U.S. dollars ($8 BILLION USD) and it’s still climbing.


Can you help us?  Surely, someone with your spirit for public service fully understands that I would never be able to spend such a huge sum on myself, nor would I ever want to.


In fact, I have already explained, in correspondence now widely disseminated via the Internet, that any financial sums a jury might agree to award me, will be dedicated to building a Supreme Law College and to establishing trust accounts for numerous charitable purposes.  Perhaps the City of Oakland would be interested in hosting the main campus of this Supreme Law College, which has been a dream of mine for many years.


For example, my office recently intervened in the pension fund crisis now gripping the City of San Diego.  This activism has made me aware that police departments around the State are also coming up short of funds for essential equipment, and for their own retirement accounts.  Subscribers to our private email discussion list responded by describing our solution as “simply brilliant” (their words, not mine).  Feel free to contact Deputy Mayor Michael Zucchet, for full details.


With such a large jury award at our disposal, I am sure that humanitarian generosity will easily become a foregone conclusion in this matter.


Mayor Brown, please give this introductory letter and all enclosed documents your prompt, sincere and professional consideration.  If you are not available to contribute solutions in your official capacity, permit me to propose that the Supreme Law Firm retain you for private counsel in these important matters e.g. as a settlement negotiator and solution facilitator.


Similarly, to protect my Civil RICO case from any further bias and prejudice which appear to exist inside Department 71 here, I would give serious consideration to removing this case to the Alameda County Superior Court, on your recommendation.



Thank you for helping in any way you might find most suitable to the pressing needs of California and its many Citizens.



Sincerely yours,


/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
