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:

Thursday 2012-12-20 — Kiraly Cases Christmas Bonus

121220. Here's a Kiraly Cases Christmas Bonus. The link below goes to a friendly letter that my attorney has sent to Michael Bonetto of Hoge Fenton. The letter is our response to some unusual documents that Michael has sent.

The interesting parts include section eight. That's where we provide a partial list of allegations against me that I feel may include misrepresentations, lies, and/or perjury on the part of three people: James Kiraly, my father; Thomas Kiraly, my brother and Vice-President of Humana Corporation; and Kenneth Kiraly, another brother and apparently the architect of the Amazon Kindle.

Ironically, Humana Corporation is involved in anti-abuse efforts. But, then, it's my understanding that Hoge Fenton takes the position that abuse is undesirable is as well. It's odd how things work out sometimes.

For more thoughts about the letter, see the post below.


Thursday 2012-12-20 — Thoughts about Christmas Bonus

121220. I posted a letter from my attorney to Michael Bonetto previously. It's at this link. This post provides more context.

Throughout the Kiraly Cases, one of the things that's been easiest to see is James Kiraly's focus on, above all else, stop Bob from talking.

If I remember correctly, James's attorney Michael Bonetto has made roughly four “offers” to settle the Kiraly Cases since they started. This includes a pro forma gesture made shortly before the first hearing; the hearing I didn't have representation for, incidentially, as I was never legally served beforehand and had insufficient time to find an attorney.

My understanding is that the “offers” consisted of demands that I agree to nearly everything in the Kiralys' original false and fraudulent actions plus unusual requirements that I believe included, at one point, surrender of Internet domain names, website content takedowns, massive financial penalties for speaking to unnamed third parties, and other measures that no judge would be likely to order even if I lost Long Cause.

In short, the “offers” were horse REDACTED.

Now it's Christmas. Time to celebrate the birth of a Savior. The one who the Kiralys believe is delighted with lies. And it's time to make an offer of my own.

The letter I posted above lists our suggested modifications to Michael's most recent “offer”.

I'm told that James Kiraly, my father, may reject the changes. He wants quite badly to stop me from talking to people. I'm not to be permitted to conduct research or to complete my book.

But James can't actually get what he wants. I'm told that no judge is likely to order prior restraint related to unnamed third parties even if James wins Long Cause. And that if an overly broad list of specific parties is presented, I can challenge the list based on not one but multiple grounds. So there is little point to what James is doing.

Like a child caught in the throes of a tantrum, though, James demands the same thing again and again. It doesn't matter. Regardless of Long Cause, and what I'm told Michael may be planning to try there, the book will continue. I'll write about Michael's plans at a later date.

Moving on, Michael seems unsettled by the fact that I'm posting correspondence of this type. I'm not entirely clear about the reasons for his concerns. However, it appears that the postings are perfectly legal.

If this isn't the case — if the postings are illegal or even improper — Michael is free to send objections to my attorney as he's done before.

But, next time, we'd prefer objections that are more relevant than misrepresentations of statutes or random phrases that might embarrass Hoge Fenton in the end.
