Re: Rambam v Prytulak BC271433 James R. Dunn
James R. Dunn:
Today marks 27 days since your judgment of 20 March 2003 in the case of Rambam v Prytulak BC271433 — and the Los Angeles Superior Court has yet to furnish me with a copy of that judgment, this despite my requesting it in my letters to you of 28-Mar-2003 and 11-Apr-2003. Without a copy of this judgment, and other requested material, my appeal is obstructed.
Furthermore, I continue to protest the Court's holding Rambam v Prytulak hearings which I learn about only after they have been held, and only in such uninformative online postings as the following:
03/25/2003 at 09:00 am in department 26, James R. Dunn, Presiding|
Motion for an Order — Proceeding continued
Trying to locate the date at which the mysterious, post-judgment motion that is continued above will be addressed again, I find under "Future Hearings" the incongruous answer "None" — all of which illustrates how I am denied information that something is about to happen, then denied information of what did happen, and in this particular instance when I see indication that something further is about to happen, I am frustrated to find that this information is stripped of the essential details of what and when. In casting about for a name to describe such proceedings, the best-fitting that I can come up with is Kafkaesque.
Currently outstanding in my request for documents from the Court are the following:
If the Los Angeles Superior Court intends to continue denying me any of the information requested above, I ask to be informed who takes responsibility for this denial, and under what authority he acts.
- A copy of the 20-Mar-2003 judgment in Rambam v Prytulak
- A copy of the book of exhibits marked 1 through 13 which supported Steven Rambam's testimony of 03-Oct-2002
- A copy of the motion and minute order for 19-Mar-2003 (which mysterious motion was granted)
- A copy of the motion and minute order for 25-Mar-2003 (which mysterious motion was continued)
