BREAKING NEWS: Curtis Richmond Filed Motion To Disqualify Judge; Other Pro Se Litigants Filed ‘Innocent Owner’ Motions To Intervene In AdSurfDaily Forfeiture Case

UPDATED 1:59 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) Curtis Richmond filed a motion to disqualify U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer from the AdSurfDaily forfeiture case before the judge had issued any rulings on a series of pro se pleadings by Richmond and others.

The motion was included today in a blizzard of motions made public in the AdSurfDaily forfeiture  case. Some of them date back to February.

At least three other pro se litigants filed separate motions to intervene in the case, and Richmond himself filed a separate motion for miscellaneous relief.

The docketing of the filings came on the heels of a ruling Collyer made last week that denied individual pro se litigants standing in the ASD case.

Motions to intervene that asserted an “innocent owner” claim were filed by:

  • Christian Oesch, Human Economic Resource Solutions, Midvale, Utah
  • Jeffrey Robinson, Ft. Myers, Fla.
  • Joan Hughes, Ottawa, Ontario

Hughes’ filing appears to have been the first prospective intervention filed from Canada. A stamp on the paperwork indicated the document was submitted March 3.

All three motions to intervene appear to use the Curtis Richmond litigation blueprint.

In his motion apparently designed to force Collyer to step down, Richmond cites this reason: “For Cause Of Extreme Bias Per U.S. Supreme Court Cases & Other Legal Citations.”

The motion to force Collyer to disqualify herself appears initially to have been submitted to the court in May.

In a separate motion, apparently received in March and made public today, Richmond demanded a ruling of some sort. The document appears to have been filed in response to a motion Richmond filed in February that demanded Collyer issue a ruling in the ASD case within 30 days or face sanctions.

“This Court and Judge Rosemary Collyer both have an Absolute Duty and Obligation Under Article VI Supremacy Clause and the Judge’s Oath of Office To Support and Defend the U.S. Constitution to Obey 18 U.S.C. Sec. 983 and the Civil Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000,” Richmond said.

“If a Judge Willfully violates these Federal Staututes and the Claimant’s Constitutional Right of Due Process & Civil Rights, She Is At War Against The U.S. Constitution And When She Is Acting Without Jurisdiction and according to the U.S. Supreme Court is Guilty of TREASON.”

  1. Sounds like the Crazy Gang are back in full force. I hope Judge Collyer gives them short measure and rejects all their motions by the anniversary of the ASD raid, or at least the end of the summer

    These filings are dated well before the rejection by Judge Collyer of the motions the other day. I wonder why they have been admitted for filing now?

  2. LRM or Gregg,

    What latitude does Judge Collyer have to demand that the various plaintiffs in these actions personally appear in her court to present their arguments? I’d like them to put their (travel) money where their pro se mouths are……none of ’em would spend a few thousand dollars chasing this particular wild goose, I’d bet.

  3. Curtis Richmond needs to be sent to an asylum for some much needs psychiatric care. He’s obviously crazy if he thinks he and his cohorts aren’t getting sanctions and fines if they keep up this nonsense!

  4. I am not a bit surprised by these actions. This is the standard M.O. for Curtis Richmond and his tribal band. I would have bet that Patrick Moriarty would have filed had he not been fighting cancer, and has his own tax issues to deal with. Curtis has done this in every case he has ever filed.

    I agree, Entertained, they should have to appear in person for them to present their case before Judge Collyer. I also hope she fines them, and has them incarcerated for wasting the court’s time and resources.

    I am surprised that this is just now coming to light. I actually thought he would wait until the Judge ruled on his Pro Se initial filing before taking this action. Time to lock him up for his own good.

  5. Well, being a Federal Judge, she can pretty much do what she wants, but realistically she won’t. She’ll just dismiss the suit, for failure to state a claim. The motion to recuse she can hear and deny herself, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she hands it off. Or maybe not, it’s a frivolous motion, but not one she’ll sanction them for.

  6. Thx Gregg,

    She has way more patience, and far less vindictiveness, than me…..

  7. Too true, Entertained. Given that legally all the money is Andy Bowdoin’s, the members have been very lucky that Judge Collyer has clearly understood that there are a lot of innocent victims caught up in the ASD fiasco. There were far more than the usual auotosurf scams, which are mainly used by “players” because of its off line promotions and the knock-on effect that those had.

    Ironically, this time round we ought to be thankful that the Government itself also seems to have recognised the difference in the membership and the number of genuinly innocent victims involved in ASD. They have gone on record to say tht they will be returning money to the members. This jhas not been the pattern in the past – but there again, with most of the others, they were not taken into the Main Streets of people’s towns.

    Many of us have great suspicions of our Governments Law Enforcers, especially after the inequalities and injustices pursued by them un the previous administration who thought Civil Liberties and Freedom of Speech were dirty words. But it looks as this time they have used the law for the purpose it was intended and on top of that are being fair. They dont have to return a cent by law.

  8. Does anyone know the whereabouts of T.Andy Bowdoin?
    Is he in the states or Uruguay? If he travels out of the country he can be tracked and actively tied to another scam like AVG very easy by his passport.It would be interesting to find out if anyone has heard where he is hanging out now.

  9. alasycia,

    I agree. Gregg has posted that in fact, according to the seizure laws, the government has no obligation whatsoever to establish a victims’ restitution fund, but are doing so anyway. That sort of undercuts the ASD supporters’ “evil government” argument……

    The irony, of course, is that every motion filed by the Arby’s Indians crowd and their affiliates just drives up the cost to everyone including tax payers and victims, clogs up the courts with frivolous motions and leaves less monies to be distributed and delays any distribution.

    It would be great to see the victims file a class action against these serial filers but that would likely be counterproductive in the short term given their nature. If anything is going to be done on the Arby’s Indians front, it will have to be the government which goes after them….which just proves their point in their “minds”.
