PACIFICA: FEDERAL COURT FREES LAWSUITS: INJUNCTIONS TO BE SOUGHT AGAINST BOARD
23 Feb 2001
LAWSUIT UPDATES- FEDERAL COURT FINALLY REMANDS BOTH THE LISTENERS' & THE DIRECTORS' LAWSUITS BACK TO STATE COURT - Injunctions Against Renegade Board Can Now Be Sought Post Haste.
Source: Carol Spooner - Committee to Remove the Pacifica Board -via- Coalition for a democratic Pacifica New York - 2-22-01 FEDERAL JUDGE REMANDS CASES TO STATE COURT

Carol Spooner reports as follows:

Federal District Court Judge Martin J. Jenkins..., signed orders remanding both our case -- the "listeners' lawsuit" -- and the directors' (Robinson/Kriegel) lawsuit, back to the California Superior Court for Alameda County.

This frees us to go to the state court ASAP to ask for temporary restraining orders and a hearing requesting a preliminary injunction against Pacifica (1) amending its bylaws, (2) appointing new directors or removing any of the "dissident directors", (3) moving its finance office and documents out of California, and (4) taking any substantial actions affecting Pacifica's assets, governance, management, or operations -- until resolution of our case.

Thanks for all your support!!!

***********************************************

ACTION:

* BOYCOTT PACIFICA AND STATIONS (NYC WBAI) FUND DRIVES- Do *not* pledge to Pacifica or any of the Stations (WBAI), until the Board resigns. If you did pledge, and you send in money, your contribution may wind up in the coffers of the anti-union, anti-worker, anti-health care law firm of Epstein Becker & Green, or otherwise used to aid the hijackers and those few at some of the local station who are their minions.

*Contribute* instead to the actions to remove the Board, including the lawsuits, and democratize the organization.

* Call Pacifica and your local station to voice your concerns.
