Re: [lifewithoutanet] Class Action Lawsuit - NPS **Update**
Your last post was completely uncalled for. We didn't even fully discuss what was said in the emails (your initial email to me and my response) before you jumped to a post bashing my ideas and efforts. Just like Robin, who i have spoke to through many Pm's, you are for the efforts of the ABP. You are not even considering the possibility of a lawsuit because of what you want to do.
If I spend the next year researching legal matters, ways of approaching the lawsuit and many other things that need to be looked over and considered and I find that a lawsuit is not the best for our community as a whole. Then I will no longer pursue judicial intervention and allow the ABP to continue there work and hope for the best. Hell, I'll join the ABP and do what I can to assist.
You emailed me with questions and I shared some ideas. You didn't even respond yet and allow me to clarify specifics before posting to the community. That's just not cool.
As for the one shot deal. I'm talking one long haul shot. From the first step into the courtroom through the appellate process till the end(whatever that may be). Even if we get to the Federal Supreme Court we may lose and "another shot" may be necessary. If I couldn't appeal a decision in the lowest of courts due to funding issues, there is no point in even trying because that's how the law works. If NPS loses in the lowest court, you can guarantee they will appeal. I'm planning on a long drawn out lawsuit that is going t be a big pain my ass. I would have clarified that if you would have asked me through our emails.
Do you seriously think, I'm going to walk into a courtroom with BS to feed to a judge. Come on now. I'm not goin to do months of research and put my time and money in this to put my thumb up my butt.
I'm going to be going to medical school dude. Research and studying is my life. Just like I wouldn't take the MCATs without knowing my stuff, I wouldn't fight a federal agency without having a solid case.
In reply to:
The only foundation we have for a lawsuit at this time is discrimination
You are incorrect. Further emails would have showed you this. But again you jumped to conclusions. I'm not going to throw all my ideas on a international BASE board. And you didn't ask about other ideas for approach in your email.
In reply to:
I think there's more to be done before jumping to a class action suit, but that's just my opinion.
You might be right, time and research will tell. But your way, and the ABP way, still leaves us under special use classification and permit based jumping. I don't agree with that.
EVERYONE, PLEASE LISTEN! I am in Nowary currently. I am going to KL, RG and BD also. Between RG and BD, classes will be starting so I will be working full time in a hospital ER (night shift), going to school during the day and working on researching this matter. At the current moment these are baseline/starter ideas. Please, just relax and give me some time to research and have some solid data and then we can fully work on this together (off the board) and knock out the kinks. Your trying to bake a cake without the ingredients. Just chill out until I can get home and start seriously working on this. This is extremely important to me and I will do my very best to make this successful. Email me ideas and I will be more than happy to talk with you and ad them to the potential game plan. Anyone who has emailed me can vouch that I have replied fully within a day or two. And I'm on a BASE trip!!!
P.S. This post just cost me 30 USD. There's 30 USD that doesn't go to the cause...
