Yesterday I drove 90 miles be in the courtroom to observe. Many of you know I have been a Private Victim’s Advocate in San Mateo County for the last 19 years. I am very interested in the lobbying aspect and Influence peddling of the Tech companies with local governments, example Judges, District Attorneys, Local Sheriff Offices, Local Law Enforcement agencies, County Supervisors etc. What are the tech capabilities with respect to data, like hacking the California DMV computer system. I’m currently interested in keeping Jody L. Williams of Las Vegas alive. She was recently criminally charged in San Mateo County for a misdemeanor all records are SEALED. Is it possible that a friend of FB could influence the criminal charges being filed of a civilian? That is why I was there yesterday.
Hon Judge Raymond Swope, informed the people in the courtroom that it is very common for him to sign protective orders, and seal orders. That is when I realized he might not have a clue what he sealed. He did acknowledge that at least 250 pages are now in the public domain in Europe House of Commons.
Expedited Discovery: FB Attorneys claimed they don’t know what information Ted Kramer disclosed. They know what was sealed don’t they? They claim “We need to know and most importantly the Court needs to know. “How do we get to the bottom of this.”
That is a great question, in order to answer that you would need to identify what THIS is.
Hon. Judge Judge Raymond Swope was doing the work of FB attorneys when he got stopped. He tried to get attorney David S. Godkin to answer a question that violated “Attorney Client Privilege.” That is when I decided to leave, this case was getting bigger and causing more questions to be asked not less. like watching an atomic mushroom cloud grow. I have to give FB credit they not only show up with enough attorneys to fill a Mini Van they also had a Public Relations pretty girl to ask me in the hall if I was Media and do I have any questions for her about what I just observed. I answered I am the media, I’m San Mateo County News, and no I have no questions.

I think most people in the world would have found the “Sealed Order” Unconscionable. It could be seen as a San Mateo County Judge, protecting a “Those Who Matter” individual or a large Employer in the County, which it did. That 4 year old case is still current next court date is April 25, 2019.
November 30, 2018 2:PM Courtroom 8A, San Mateo County, California. The Hon. Judge Raymond Swope said:
“What has happened is unconscionable,” “It shocks the conscience.” “And your conduct is not well taken by this court.”
Judge Swope ordered Mr.Kramer to hand over his laptop, cellphone and passwords to a forensic investigator and ordered Thomas Scaramellino, a member of the Six4Three legal team who was also an investor in the company, to provide his devices for document preservation.
Who is the Forensic Investigator for San Mateo County? The world should pray that it is not an employee of San Mateo County Counsel John Beiers, Sheriff Carlos Bolanos, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe or a member of R.E.A.C.T. Taskforce.
I give the current 4 year criminal cases of Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez and the recent sealed search warrant and sealed complaint for Jody L. Williams as just two examples of why you would not want any of the above to handle the Laptop, Cellphones etc.
The New York Times, Washington Post and Associated Press contended that the documents could help answer questions of great public interest about how Facebook handled user data.

Note to San Mateo County residents reading this, I was unable to attend yesterday’s hearing, I had 2 reporters in the courtroom, More importantly I notified 23 media and reporters first thing in the morning, letting them know this is a Big News story.
