Van Nuys, California 91401
Case No. 02E00326
Defendant: Lubomyr PRYTULAK
Plaintiff: Steven RAMBAM
I bring three issues to the court's attention:
(1) As indicated in my Motion to Quash of 03-Apr-2002, the summons received by me on 09-Mar-2002 has missing pages. I have not as yet been served with a complete version.
(2) The allegedly defamatory material which is the subject of Case No. 02E00326 is, along with a second instance of such material, the subject of another Steven Rambam law suit against me which is before the California Superior Court, Case No. BC271433, filed 04-Apr-2002. Given this overlap, I wonder if propriety did not require 02E00326 to be withdrawn when BC271433 was initiated.
(3) Having queried a California attorney to represent me on the matter of the two Rambam suits, and having been instructed that he would require a retainer of $8,500 (which works out to $13,039 Canadian), and in view of a retainer not being a final bill, I have concluded that being represented by California counsel is far beyond my means. Consequently, I will be unable to send representation to any California proceedings, including the Order to Show Cause hearing scheduled for 24-Jul-2002. However, I will be pleased to supply, either by mail or electronically, any information that the court may request.
