The Trump ACN lawsuit has come to a halt, following a granted stay on proceedings.
On May 26th the Trump defendants filed an appeal against a decision to deny a motion to compel arbitration.
On May 29th the Second Circuit granted an administration stay on proceedings while the appeal was decided.
The appeal is scheduled to be briefed on June 12th.
Separately Raj K. Patel filed a bizarre motion to intervene as a plaintiff on May 22nd.
Patel alleges President Trump and Notre Dame Law School are involved in a RICO conspiracy against him.
The conspiracy allegedly involves Vice President Pence, Emory University, the Secret Service, FBI “and other federal military and civilian agencies”.
These other knowledgeable parties are the individuals that President Trump, with or without actual knowledge, engaged in an “enterprise” with to defraud Mr. Patel and put Mr. Patel in a state of psychological warfare.
According to Patel, Trump and Notre Dame Law School misappropriated Patel’s “unique word patterns”.
Mr. Patel would like to keep the word patterns and scenario as sensitive information, but states that content of the word patterns is nonprofane and non-explicit, yet was also used to batter him via soundwaves as a part of this enterprise.
Apparently the goal of all of this was to “decrease Patel’s academic performance”.
In addition, the purpose of enterprise might be to politically target Mr. Patel, whose honor’s thesis, “Weight Loss as a Religion.”
As of May 21, 2020, the enterprise and situation is mildly ongoing and began as early as fifteen years ago, which is about the same amount of time the original plaintiffs say they have been defrauded by President Trump’s enterprise with the American Communication Network (A.C.N.).
Uh, OK then.
On May 26th the court denied Patel’s motion. He went on to file an appeal on May 27th.
Patel filed a lawsuit regarding the same subject matter in Indiana on February 10th.
The lawsuit was dismissed on February 19th. The dismissal order states Patel’s “allegations in the complaint are frivolous”.
Update 25th November 2020 – Raj K. Patel’s appeal has been denied.
The USCA denied Patel’s appeal ‘because it lacks an arguable basis either in law or in fact.’
Update 25th March 2021 – Raj K. Patel is apparently trying to get his appeal heard by the Supreme Court.
Last Friday, 3/19/21, I called and spoke to U.S. Supreme Court Assistant Clerk Redmond Barnes to follow up on my Petition for Writ of Certiori, filed in October 2020.
Assistant Clerk Barnes asked for a corrected copy of the Petition For Writ of Certiorari because I exceeded the word limit and page limit, so I sent him the corrected copy etc.
That’s from a March 24th letter on the ACN Trump case docket. I’ll continue to monitor the case docket for updates.
Update 23rd September 2021 – The Second Circuit has denied the Trump Defendants arbitration appeal.
Update 14th April 2022 – I wanted to make a note wrapping up Raj K. Patel’s status in the case.
Despite being knocked back from participation, Patel continued to file letters addressed to the Judge. The latest round of filings were stricken as per a March 28th Memo Endorsement.
Mr. Patel’s March 23, 2022, letter is not properly before the court. On May 26, 2020, the Court denied Mr. Patel’s motion to intervene in this action.
The Second Circuit denied Mr. Patel’s appeal of that Order on October 9, 2020.
The Court hereby STRIKES Dkt. No. 372. Mr. Patel shall file no further substantive filings in this action.
There have been no further filings from Patel so he appears to be abiding by the memo.
Arbitration proceedings between the Plaintiffs and Trump defendants continues.
