Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?

A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”

It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.

Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.

Concise enough? :)

For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.

In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.

A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P

The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.

Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.

These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.

For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.

There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.

The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.

I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.

I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:

Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

Wednesday 2012-11-28 — Letter to attorney about settlement

121128. This is a letter to my attorney. Sent on 121128.

1. This letter discusses a document that was apparently prepared by, at the direction of, or in consultation with:

Sixty South Market Street, Suite 1400
San Jose, California 95113-2396
Phone: (408) 287-9501
Fax: (408) 287-2583

circa November 2012. For the purposes of this letter, it will be referred to informally as “Michael's document” or “Michael Bonetto's document”.

2. First, an important note. Michael Bonetto's document seems to include the address of seven “protected” parties and/or related parties:

(a) James Francis Kiraly, a former VP of Transamerica Corporation who lives or has lived in Pismo Beach, California

(b) Grace Violet Kiraly, wife of James Francis Kiraly who lives or has lived in Pismo Beach, California

(c) Thomas Evan Kiraly, apparently a VP of Humana Corporation who apparently lives or has lived in Glenview, Kentucky

(d) Four other “protected” parties and/or related parties

I hereby state publicly that I did not seek to obtain these addresses but that I have been provided with these addresses, either with the explicit or implied consent of Michael Bonetto or otherwise through no prohibited actions of my own, and I am now in possession of these addresses.

I'll add that, as I've explained in the past, I was in possession of the first two addresses previously, prior to the issuance of any order not to seek them.

The most important point related to all of this is, I feel, that any order not to seek these addresses is now arguably moot.

3. Moving on, I've spent quite a bit on legal fees. A non-trivial part of that has gone to discussions regarding the fact that the Kiraly Cases are, at their heart, about a former abuser, James Kiraly, fighting to prevent one of his children, myself, from writing an anti-abuse book. And about the fact that the project will not be set aside.

So why did you send me a document that is much stronger than the original orders and that puts a definitive end to the book?

Why would I agree to something much stronger than the original orders? And much stronger, in some respects, than anything a judge could, in fact, order? I'd never accept these terms. You're fully aware of this.

4. If Michael Bonetto of Hoge Fenton is not able to correct the problems with his document, proceed as follows: (a) Meet and Confer. (b) Motion to Limit Scope. (c) Subpoena unredacted phone records. (d) Subpoena Grace Violet Kiraly. (e) Interrogatories, Admissions of Truth, and additional Demands for Production.

5. Explain to me what my declaration regarding employment needs to say; the one you mentioned last week. I'll write it and send it to you promptly.

6. Michael Bonetto's document demands not only the surrender of lawful and appropriate domain names, but also the removal of content from lawful and appropriate websites. Tell Michael to review how this type of effort by attorneys typically ends up. It's probably a good idea that he study the issue.

7. Tell Michael Bonetto this: (a) His demand for the removal of lawful and appropriate content will be forwarded to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and other groups that may be interested. (b) The document as a whole will become a part of future mailings to anti-abuse organizations and advocacy groups. (c) The document as a whole will go to multiple anti-abuse sites, including my own.

8. Tell Michael Bonetto this: I'm going to take steps starting immediately that may be of interest to him or other parties seeking to suppress the facts of the Kiraly Cases. I'll be distributing ZIP files to mirrors outside my control. If any anti-abuse site of mine is taken down for any reason, including by me, copies will appear in locations around the world.

It should be noted as a point of information that anti-abuse documents in China, Canada, Europe, Sri Lanka, Brazil, or New Zealand are just as visible to U.S. browsers as copies in the U.S.

9. The document says “Indirect contact shall include but not be limited to contacting neighbors, friends, business associates, and church members (congregation and religious officials) of any Protected Person for purposes of discussing, stalking, or harassing any Protected Person.”

This is much stronger than the original orders. Note the word “discussing”. This is about stopping the anti-abuse book. I absolutely am going to discuss “Protected Persons” in every possible lawful and appropriate venue. Michael Bonetto and Natasha Parrett of Hoge Fenton too. For years, to the maximum extent possible. I've made this clear to you since the start.

10. Tell Michael Bonetto this: Initially, lawful and appropriate calls will be made to child and spousal abuse advocacy groups. Calls will focus on Hoge Fenton's attempts to suppress a positive book that happens to discuss child and spousal abuse. Michael's document will be forwarded to each group as possible evidence of his actions and intentions.

11. Michael's document mentions “business associations of each protected person”. Also churches again. As before, this seems to be much stronger than the original orders. I'd never agree to it. And, again, you're fully aware of this.
