Vote for the Worst LLC. J. Malcolm Devoy of Randazza Legal Group is allegedly involved in harassing and intimidating woman to get what the "Client" wants DONE

Got a Tip ?

"A Las Vegas lawyer for copyright company Righthaven LLC complained Friday that opposing attorneys are engaged in “scorched-earth, anti-Righthaven litigation tactics.”"


Marc Randazza has plenty of connections, this Shawn guy, attorney for Righthaven does not stand a chance, these guys file sanctions and lies constantly to wear people down and AVOID the real TRUTH from rolling out. Follow the MONEY.


James M. Devoy connected to alleged Stalker Sean Tomkins?

Randazza Legal Group, Marc Randazza cries "sham" in Righthaven Scandal and there Seems to be Smoke and Mirrors Going up EVERYWHERE.

Do Your Homework Folks.

This Article, Website below says that Stephens Media pretty much is Righthaven
http://www.righthavenlawsuits.com/

Now you have Marc Randazza talking about new evidence "cited is the newly-unsealed Strategic Alliance agreement covering copyright assignments from Stephens Media LLC, owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, to Righthaven".

Stephens Media is helping Marc Randazza look good online, even though Marc Randazza is lying about Investigative Blogger Crystal Cox and fighting directly against her, my rights to Free Speech.

Was Stephens Media and Marc Randazza behind this all along?  Did Marc Randazza pressure Shawn Mangano somehow to put pressure on Steven Gibson, and put him under so much financial burden he could no longer fight?

Filing Documents on Sunday, WOW Marc Randazza must be covering somebody's Ass, and but quick. In My OPINION.

Marc Randazza was just admitted to the Nevada bar in January Right? What is really going on? Righthaven committing fraud on the courts, and he seems to be standing up for Stephens Media? Is that a scam? For what purpose, it is a tax thing? Where Righthaven goes under and Stephens Media gets the Right Off?  I mean it sure seems like Stephens Media pretty much IS Righthaven, so now they are at odds?

So Righthaven sued a bunch of folks for a copyright they never owned, and Righthaven is Stephens Media seemingly according to this, http://www.righthavenlawsuits.com/ , then Righthaven auctioned off copyrights to pay the legal fees of Marc Randazz according to this http://www.knpr.org/audio2012/SON-mp3/120322_righthaven-ends.mp3 ( at around 11 minutes in), and seemingly Marc Randazza had no issue with who owned the copyright then. Ok now we have a seeming buddy buddy with Warren Stephen, Stephens Media and now there is fraud on the courts because they did not have a right to the copyright sold allegedly to pay HUGE legal fees to Marc Randazza?

Sure seems like a Giant, Multi-Million dollar hocus pocus to me, and the Lawyers such as Marc Randazza seem to make the most money.

If there was a Copyright Sham, a Fraud on the Courts, then Surely Stephens Media was involved and now they look like the Victim, and Marc Randazza to the rescue? WOW, there is guaranteed to be tons more to pour out on all this. Got a Tip? SavvyBroker@Yahoo.com

Is Marc Randazza trying to protect his buddies at Stephens Media LLC that post fluff pieces on him, such as this one
http://lasvegascitylife.com/articles/2012/01/26/news/local_news/iq_50610855.txt

Here is the Article from Sunday the 17th of April.

"Attorneys say new evidence shows fraud by Righthaven
By Steve Green
Sunday, April 17, 2011 | 4:03 p.m.

Defense attorneys in at least two Righthaven LLC copyright infringement lawsuits filed motions to dismiss over the weekend, citing new evidence they say shows Righthaven has perpetrated a fraud on the federal court in Nevada.

The evidence cited is the newly-unsealed Strategic Alliance agreement covering copyright assignments from Stephens Media LLC, owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, to Righthaven.

In motions filed Sunday, attorneys with Randazza Legal Group said this contract shows Righthaven’s lawsuits are based on "sham’’ copyright claims since Stephens Media maintains control of the material covered by the copyrights."

Blogger Crystal Cox Alleges that Attorney Marc Randazza is creating a Media Firestorm to Suppress information Regarding the iViewit Technology and the Porn Industry's use of the iViewit Invention in all video for over a decade, without paying the real inventors of the technology.

I Believe that Marc Randazza got the call, as he told me from top people in the Porn Industry, and they said "what are you going to do about it" as Marc Randazza told me. And this call was not about what are you going to do to help this woman, this case so that it does not affect the Free Speech, and First Amendment Rights of the porn industry.

This call was to get Marc Randazza to represent me, in my appeal, so that Marc Randazza could negotiate a deal with Obsidian Finance Group and their Attorney and then with me Crystal Cox, Investigative Blogger. A deal that would look good for us all and therefore STOP me from going to Appeal.

See, what if I win the appeal and get the label as "Credible" instead of "Bat Shit Crazy". See then the real issue comes up, see then I would look Credible in my 3 years of promoting Eliot Bernstein and the iViewit Technologies story. And this is the "Real Agenda" this is a 13 Trillion Dollar Video Technology that the Porn Industry has been using for over a decade. Stolen by Proskauer Rose, Kenneth Rubenstein and the gang at MPEG LA and involving many other Law Firms, Individuals and Companies. Part of the iViewit Technology was patented illegally by the MoviLink gang that seems to by lynching me in support of Marc Randazza.

Marc Randazza's offer to represent me back fired, as I did not like the way he treated me and I chose another Lawyer. This has led to an online brawl, with the real prize being the iViewit Technology.

Also Note that Tonkon Torp is connected to Enron whom collapsed mainly to do with deals over the Iviewit Technology. Proskauer Rose Law Firm is connected to all of this, so is Warner Bros., Sony, Foley and Lardner, Greenberg Trauig, Arthur Anderson ( where the Star witness of Obsidian V. Cox Gary of PNW Tax Advisors Portland use to work), and also SGI, Time Warner Inc., Intel Corp, Volvo, Blockbuster, Lockheed Martin, and hundred more are involved in the iViewit Technology Theft. The iViewit Technology is worth 13 Trillion Dollars and all video has used this technology for over a decade, the inventors did not get any rights or profit what so ever. They did get their Volvo bombed, and many other torturous acts upon them.

See if Marc Randazza could stop the Appeal, this saves the Big Porn companies Millions on top of Millions over the use of a technology that the inventors did not get paid for. If Marc Randazza can discredit me now, then WOW is he in good, with the Biggest Tech and Media Companies in the World. Saves them 13 Trillion Dollars, no Exaggeration.

Drama Queen Marc Randazza Talks of his darkest hour of Terror... OMG if that is his darkest hour then his life is so very charmed..

Marc Randazza.. .. so what was your Darkest Hour of "Terror" ?

OMG my Darkest Hour of Terror was when a woman on the lunatic fringe registered a domain name, I was to damn dumb to buy.. See I saw Crystal Cox attacking my post regarding a drunken tryst. .. and OMG after I emailed her to say.. "you made your point what do you want"... ( ya know to set up for extortion and get that bitch behind bars...) well.. OMG she got so mad she bought the domain name resembling my wife's name.. I was so upset, I had sleepless nights... then I was like OMG ... maybe she bought a mysterious secret domain name that she has not put online yet.. I better get up and check.. OMFG.. she did.. I am going to call Kash at Forbes Right away and rally my buddies, and ..oh I know, as a special favor to Super Duper Marc Randazza I will get ol' Kash to exploit the mystery name.. and help me seek my revenge on that Bad Shit Crazy Blogger Crystal Cox for buying Marc Randazza .com - that otta fix her lil' wagon.. 

I don't know why she is so upset with me.. I was just trying to get her some prison time.. and fuck up her case.. and well ya know set her up.. gee she needs to calm down..

YOU WILL NOT DESTROY ME MARC RANDAZZA..
I am in the White Light on this..

oh and DO Contact the FBI as your Interviewer Suggested, I have some things to tell them.. about you Dumb ASS.. I am on the Right Side of the Law, and the Right Side of the Moral Compass.. I know Who I am.. Marc Randazza, The Victims of Corruption I Defend will not be silence over YOUR FLAT OUT LIES !!

Crystal Cox, Pro Se Blogger Claims that Marc Randazza Extorted Her, Set Her Up, Put her in False Light, and Violated her Rights of Due Process and Law.

The Great Debate of  "Whom Extorted Whom"  Continues. 
 I really think I do present the better legal case, don't you?
Oh Well It's all Just a Satire and Parody Anyway Right?
(for those who don't know, I make this joke because that was Randazza's
Defense in the WIPO Case with Glen Beck )

Marc Randazza spoke with me an  Anti-Corruption Blogger who blogs on my blogs. This was on December 10th, 2011. Keep in mind time was critical at this point in getting a notice of appeal in or a Motion for a New Trial.

After the Phone Call I sent Marc Randazza lot's of documents, and last I heard he would read them to see if my argument was preserved enough to want to represent me and to see if he had a conflict of interest with the Media Bloggers Association.

Meanwhile, with Time Running out, I was weighing out all options. Another Attorney had contacted me on Dec. 6th, 2011 and said he wanted to represent me, but was waiting for clearance from his firm as this was completely Pro Bono and there was a process to go through. So I was not sure if he would represent me for sure or not. So I was still looking at other Attorney Options, and trying to see if it was even best to appeal, for I was going to do it Pro Se if no Attorney was on board. And wanted as many Expert as Opinions as I could, for this case matter to so many Whistle Blowers, Anti-Corruption Bloggers and Citizen Journalists.

So after the December 10th, 2011 Phone Call and Tons of Documents send, there was not another word from or regarding Marc Randazza until the 14th of December at exactly 5:06 PM when Marc Randazza Emailed me this, "

TO: Crystal L. Cox
December 14, 2011 5:06 PM

FROM: "mjr@randazza.com"

Crystal,

I have reviewed the file, and I have pondered the issues, and I have decided that I will take your case.  We need to talk about some of the issues of representation before finalizing it. But, I am game.

When can you talk? "

How Ironic was that, as the Other Attorney had Emailed me at Exactly 5:00 PM regarding, hearing that Marc Randazza represented me, and wanted to know if he should call off the Pro Bono Process.

It seems that he had been told by others in the First Amendment Bar that Marc Randazza represented me, and so he called Marc Randazza up and flat out asked him. And it seems that Marc Randazza indeed claimed to be representing me, and even seemed to have spoke of a negotiation he was under way with as my "Attorney".

So of course acting as my Attorney he would violate my rights and negotiate without talking to me right? So just what was the terms of this negotiation on my alleged, behalf ? And if he did represent me in his own mind then how is it ethical to go to the other side with my strategy at that time. And how is it ethical to later, in a revenge over a domain name I refused to turn over to his demands, he went to the Plaintiff in this amazingly important First Amendment Case, and Side with them to Set me up for Extortion ?  Did this secret negotiation giving away inside information and strategy acting as my attorney have anything to do with the Motion for a New Trial Process?  What did Marc Randazza discuss with the Plaintiff's Camp? Is all this Legal? If so it is Certainly NOT ETHICAL.

Obviously the Reviewing and Pondering was well past, and Marc Randazza was acting as my Attorney. He emailed me he would take the case and told another Attorney he represented me, or so it would seem. Even though he made it clear to the other attorney that he had already been spending time and effort on this case.

So another words, Marc Randazza was acting as my attorney well before the 5:06 Email of Dec. 14th 2011, in which Marc Randazza finally let me, the client, know that he would take my case, though he had already told many he represented me, and had been already negotiating as my attorney.

It was recommended that I contact Marc and Let Him know that he does not represent me. So My Response to the Above Email was The Following, and it was sent to Both Attorneys

I hope this email finds you doing well.  I just want to clarify a few things as respectfully as I can.

Marc, it was nice talking with you, I do feel your working in the best interest of bloggers.  After our conversation I sent documents, not even all, as you needed them another way, I never heard different and I prayed about our connection and its of the "greater good" and well Marc, when on the phone with me you told me I messed this up, thing is I am divinely led, and I did a great job, and in losing I got voice to the victims I fight for.  I DID NOT MESS UP.

I filed tons of document, not the way you would of but they are in the public record, and also this trial, to me as it stands will be used to assist me in filing a Federal RICO Lawsuit and a Whistleblower Lawsuit, as I got them to perjury themself.  And my goal is justice for all, and though an attorney may have got me out of this early, thing is there would have been someone else to sue me, or another to get sued to bring about the change in bloggers rights that this will bring. I did NOT mess up, and its important to me to be respected as the strong, intelligent, woman that I am, as my intention is really of the light, is good and ya sometimes I seem over the top but I am all heart on this, and my victims I will fight to the death for.

That's just who and what I am.  You, Marc do not seem to respect me, or treat me as if I am worthy, equal to you, and it feels like you want your client, or possibly women in general to take a back seat to you and that's not me.  And to confirm all this for me as I prayed for a sign, I heard thru several channels that you were saying you represented me, but did not give me the decency or respect to tell me or even keep me in the loop.
To not even email me back that you read any of the documents, to not contact me and then I hear your representing me.  You said you may have a conflict and would let me know, you did not let me know and then seemed to tell others your were representing me, and you wanted money I don't have.

To me, after working 7 years at this, facing judges set me up, cops set me up, attorneys screw me over, death threats, being drugged, and extreme duress and persecution over all this for so long, well, you telling others you represent me BEFORE telling me, well that is on the wrong side of the moral and ethical compass to me.  And is opposite of the equal rights, women's rights, lesbian rights, bloggers rights, citizen journalists rights, victims rights that I fight for. 

Marc I got your forward last night, thing is I know the exact dollar amount of the transcripts, have known for over a week, and i know the court clerk email, been in this a year now.  So that proves again you think me clueless, i have no money to get the transcripts at this time.
Eug ene spoke highly of you and even recommended you, thing is I will not speak with anyone on this from the law aspect expect Eu gene, if he can't represent me, I will not appeal.

As Eug ene represents what I fight for, and no disrespect marc just a tip for your future, Eug  ene emailed me here and there and let me know what was going on, he listened to me, respected me and never once told me I messed up or EVER assumed anything about me.  Nor did he speak of my journalistic standards as an issue, as you did.  He never hesitated in wanted to represent me, it was simply a matter of if he could.  He is Kind to me, smart and treats me with dignity and respect, you do not.  Sorry that Simple.

So Just wanted you to know a bit why, and confirm, Marc Randazza does NOT represent me in ANY way.  Eug ene Vo lok h represents me, and if he can't then so be it, I will leave that in the hands of the Great Spirit.  I will not lose my voice, my dignity, and respect in this.  I know my Truth though many others are trashing me, I know my truth. 

The New York Times and Forbes are legally defaming me and inspiring a lynch mob based on one email that they refuse to discuss my side or even investigate the truth.  I want to file lawsuits against them, and I intend to fight back. 

I do not want to sit down and shut up, I do not want a back seat in this, though I dont want to interfere or tell an attorney whats best, thing is I know the clerks, the case, the documents and I just want respect for what I have done and not told I messed up. 

I have lost my home phone, and internet, I am to be evicted on Monday, I keep fighting and blogging and I will no matter what. This last year I lost everything that was dear to me, and my life as I knew it, corruption has done everything to shut me down.  So no disrespect Marc, I just don't like the way you treated me.

take care and keep up the great work for the better good of all victims of a corrupt justices system that makes victims out to be criminals.  The Lie will NOT stand as the TRUTH on my watch.  I am certain of my Fight, my Mission per say.  

Blessings to You

In Love and Light,

"Friday, December 16, 2011 12:55 PM

Crystal,

I want to address a few things:

First and foremost, if you feel that I did not treat you respectfully, I humbly apologize. I do not wish to leave that un-discussed. People like you are important for the future of citizen journalism, and I wish to see you succeed.

I also want to correct a misperception here. I did not tell anyone that I represented you, for certain. I did tell the opposing counsel that I thought a deal might be brokered - but that I wanted to speak to him first (to test his waters with respect to a possible mutually agreeable resolution).

Finally, I want to make it clear that our discussion about money was in terms of "costs." I thought that I made it clear that my bills, my fees (my income) would be waived. All that I was asking you about being able to pay was out of pocket reimbursement of expenses.

Despite the contents of this email, I wish to let you know that I am sill willing to lend a hand in any way - even in the background.

-Marc "

Friday, December 16, 2011 2:03 PM

Thank You Marc I appreciate it, thing is again talking to the Devil to cut a deal without my permission is again disrespective. I consciously, intelligently chose not to deal, they sent a, what they call settlement communication a couple weeks before the trial, asking me to blame somebody they dont like, wanting 20 of my sites, and wanted me to pay 5000 for ever time i discuss them, even after i was granted a summary judgment to talk about them, and this is apparently not extortion... so i chose no deal... they did not prove that post not true, they tricked me, they lied, and i will not deal with them unless its a very good deal, they have put me through hell and now are persecuting me and setting me up for a crime..

one of my clients called this morning and said they got a call with somebody asking, so this means they have my bank account and are investigating me, yet for some reason not investigating the criminals.. so a deal would have to be very good.. and I would want in on it..

anyway thanks again for the apology.. peace and love to you"


Fast Forward to Monday January 16th, 2012, 2:30 PM. I thought I had left things on decent terms. A month had passed and having been evicted and a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgment, I was looking for work, so I email this to Marc Randazza.


"Hi Marc, hope this email finds you doing well. When I thought we may work together
i bought http://www.marcrandazza.com/ - to control the search, and pr on my case,
if you represented me.. I manage it now, as ownership is well.. a different story now
due to my current judgement..

I am confident with the case, and leaving it to the highest and best good..

I do however need to make money, so I am asking you if you or anyone you know could
use a very good search engine reputation manager. Not sure if you ever researched that
for your online presence.. not sure of what you think of David Aman excusing me of extortion,
thing is search management is something tons of people due and for thousands a month per search term..

and so when he sent a cease and desist and filed a lawsuit, i offered it as a way to settle and not
spend a year fighting, he turned it down, then a year later accused me of a crime.. its simply not
how it happened..

Anyway if you know anyone needing a very good search engine reputation manager please let me know.."

That is the email that he claims I extorted him.  A domain name I bought Dec. 6th 2011, that I had every legal right to own. A legitimate service that thousands offer. And I had not written about Marc Randazza in any way what so ever at that time.

And though many love to speculate, what I meant by ownership is a different story, is that the Plaintiff was in the process of paperwork to take Domain Names that I owned or had owned, and that was one of them, so ya ownership is a different story as I thought the Plaintiff would take the Domain Name, and they still seem to be in the process of trying to do so. As they Deem the Domain Names and Asset, though at this point in time they certainly seem to be a Liability to an owner.

I never extorted anyone nor was there a Criminal Complaint Filed regarding extortion.  What Follows is Extortion and threats from Marc Randazza if I don't turn over the name, and well he followed through with his threat, and now has other Lawyers, Bloggers, the New York Times, Forbes and more posting information that deliberately puts me in False Light and flat out lies. Marc Randazza is flat out lying about me and committing a Hate Crime in inciting a riot against me based on fraudulent information and Flat Out Lies.

Marc Randazza's Response to the Above Email

"TO: Crystal L. Cox
January 16, 2012 2:36 PM

Crystal,

You have no right to register a domain name that corresponds to my real name. Please hand that domain name over to me, and please do not presume to think it is okay to register other people's names as domain names.

WOW, 6 minutes Later Marc John Randazza Responds.

So was that as an attorney, saying I have no legal right to register a domain name that corresponds to his real name or was that just his opinion? Wait now, before you answer, remember the Glen Beck Email and the WIPO case that Marc Randazza won over that, and remember the Crystal Cox, Proskauer Rose Lawyers and how I won the right to have those Domain Names, and I was Pro Se in that Case.

So then he goes to Please hand that domain name over to me, and please do not presume to think it is okay to register other people's names as domain names. REALLY, wow.. is that all you got... after defending others to own VERY sick names accusing someone of rape and murder right in the domain name. Ahhh Marc, ya big baby, it was just a Parody, a Satire...


Ok SO My Response Was

"Monday, January 16, 2012 3:23 PM

"Really? Well Marc, Look at my WIPO case with Proskauer Rose, WIPO sure seems to think its Ok. I thought it was perfectly legal to do so. I have registered others name in fair competition and real estate for years. I registered others names to promote them, some to expose them, and others as investments in the future. Many smart internet marketers register others names, it is not illegal Marc. Sorry I upset you, never mind. I was simply looking for people to promote as I need a job. Guess you don't need such a service, all you had to do was say no thank you. I am sure that you get tons of spam emails daily asking you to hire them, we all do. You could have just ignored it."

Marc Randazza sure did get into a huff over it.. Talk about Double Standards. He knows as an Attorney in this field of expertise that he was lying about my right to own that Domain Name. 

I went on to say ...

"It is certainly not against the law to register the domain name of others. I was Pro Se with my Proskauer Rose case and I won, having many of their attorney names as a dotcom. Real free to file with WIPO, and be sure and name me in that case as well as the current registered name, as I proudly and smartly registered the domain name. We are happy to go to WIPO over it.

there are others but here is the chairman of Proskauer Rose, WIPO Case

Crystal,

Perhaps you just don't understand how deeply offensive it is to me that you would register that without even telling me, let alone asking me. You had no right to do that.

Do you think that just by being my potential client, or even my actual client that it somehow created a right for you to register my name to "protect the story?" Don't you think that I have a) the ability to do that myself, and b) the right to decide whether or not you would use my name for your own exclusive use -- to talk about YOUR story? Even if you thought that this was okay, which seems strange to me, why on earth would you think that you continue to have any justification for having that domain?

Asking me for a job, or a recommendation? That doesn't bother me in the least. In fact, if you had displayed any ethics, I'd be game to do so.

But, why on earth would you think that it is reasonable to tell someone that a) you registered THEIR name for YOUR own purposes, and THEN b) ask for a job? It is (a) that makes an enemy of me. (b) is completely reasonable.

I'm sure you paid a few bucks for the domain. I'd be pleased to reimburse you what it cost you. But, I do not find it to be acceptable that someone else has registered my name for any purpose. I certainly do not agree with your justification for doing it in the first place. Nevertheless, any justification you MIGHT have had dissolved when it became certain that I was not going to represent you, I have no connection to this case at all, and thus I can't possibly see any reason for you to have any control over that domain whatsoever -- unless the purpose is to simply make an enemy of me. "

Ok so Marc Randazza has no problem of me asking for a job, yet now in the Media is calling it Extortion, as part of the PopeHat.com Attorney Lynch Mob.  Then Marc goes on to say well if you did have "any justification" then it dissolved " when it became certain that I was not going to represent you".  Did you mean when I made it clear to YOU that you WOULD not Represent Me, because you Treated Me Badly and Disrespected Me? Oh I see, well if that's your legal case in this dispute, I bought the Name on December 6th, 2011 and I certainly was not "certain" at that time. So where is the Extortion you Lying Asshole?

Crystal Cox Responded to the Above Email with This

"Thanks for your input, confirms my choice regarding you. Fine if you want me as an enemy, so be it.

As far as my ethics, you have no clue who I am, I know my Truth. And I Trust you know yours.

There is nothing wrong with registering names, to further my cause, or protect my story in search. Or registering domain names to write news, events, and whistle blower tips on that person. It is a way to get stories in the top of the search, it is wise to have one's own name, you call me an enemy here so it is.

I will take no future job from you, I want no money from you. i will use the name to post current and archived internet stories about you, as I please, not defamation, simply word for word as I find them on
the sites of others. I have the right to repost articles of others and have received emails from many asking why I did not choose you to represent me, I had not responded. If you want your domain name, you will have to file a WIPO complaint, and or sue me for registering it and sue the guy I sold it to. 



And maybe take a look at his story to and the surrounding corruption that is ignored. This is bigger then free speech Marc, it is about the culture of corruption in america and the lawyers, judges, cops, corporations that are either part of the solution or part of the problem.

You did not treat me well, for you believed what others said and did not even know that the story i was writing on was and is very true, that guy really did those things and I was just getting the story to the top of the search engines.

You asked for all my documents, said you would get back to me, and then told others you represented me. To me you are a bully, not ethical, as you said in your call you were not sure of me because of what was being said, thing is I am good at search management for good guys because of years of exposing, investigating, deep search on the "bad guys".

I turn up amazing discovering, and find out who is connected from monitoring my posts and the search engine placement has ex employees, ex wives and husbands, and tons of people sending me tips on that person, because i am so good at getting on top of search.

I gave voice to victims and the search placement happened by accident. After 5 years of it, i decided to offer it as a service, i have not got any jobs from it thus far, have not really tried heavily as I was employed as an investigative blogger by a big company out of new york to investigate connections
of people, which i am very good at deep online research and turning up tips.

And yes I have a "right" to register what I want, if you want that to NOT be a right you should have first bought the name years ago and secondly lobby the laws, so that the register cannot sell people's names to those who are not named that person. The registrar lets people register what they want, and perhaps those laws should change. However for me it is a tool to get in search and to uncover stories, post stories and make connections between things that person is or has ever been involved in.

As far as the domain name, It is not for sale at any price, for any reason. I currently don't own it and simply manage the name. You say in your email that your capable to registering the name?? why didn't you then? Be offended if you like, you offended me at our first call. Your an arrogant pompous
ass, and so thanks for letting me know that you are an enemy. So be it. I have faith that is meant to be, so let the WAR begin.. your Move..

I have every justification for owning that name, for one obviously i am smarter then you.

Slam me, say no ethics, and the rest of what you have said about me, well your FLAT WRONG about me, so be it, nothing I can do. You want an enemy of me, then fine, you have made that call. Let the skeletons in your closet start to rattle, hope your squeaky clean.

I have registered every name of the companies i have worked for in order to protect them in search, its just common sense Marc Randazza.

And you have NO connection to me in this case? Really, well rumor has it that you told people you represented me, and then later said other things about me, so I am not sure that is the whole truth and nothing but, at any rate I will not email you again... you have drawn your line in the sand.. do as you will I trust its meant to be.. "

Flash Forward to March 7th 2012, this was the Day that Tonkon Torp Attorney David Aman, for the Plaintiff in attempting to execute on a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement Signed a Subpoena to Marc Randazza.  On March 8th as my own Attorney, in my Pro Se Capacity I get an Email with a Copy of the Marc Randazza Deposition Subpoena.

After this, the Use of MarcRandazza.com took a Turn. 

Ok so on March 10th I am pissed off and want to Expose Marc Randazza before his deposition, so I buy FuckMarcRandazza.com - MarcRandazzaSucks.com ... and I publicize these names best I can, he knows they went up, I saw him on my Statcounter.  Ok so then on March 12th I buy more names to keep building blogs on, such as MarcJRandazza.com and Marc John Randazza .com ..



So I Got notably into the Search Engines and

Marc Randazza Emails, Crystal Cox This

----- Forwarded Message -----
From: "mjr@randazza.com" <mjr@randazza.com>
To: Crystal Cox <savvybroker@yahoo.com>
Sent: Monday, March 12, 2012 12:37 PM
Subject: Ok


Ok, you made your point.  So what do you want?  "

I Did NOT Respond. 

Ok at this point I am really PISSED, as Marc Randazza was planning on giving a Deposition and I assumed emailed me this to set me up for Extortion, so On the 13th of March I researched Deeper into the Marc Randazza - Sandra Fluke - Rush Limbaugh Scandal.



I pushed these as blogs and Marc Randazza certainly knew.. then on the 13th, after I was researching the Sandra Fluke Slut Comments and Marc Randazza in the Search Engines I found this post 


Where Do Babies Come From ? Why a Drunken Tryst in Cabo San Lucas Of Course.
http://randazza.wordpress.com/2008/03/22/the-most-amazing-news/ 
If it Gone Let Me Know, I have a PDF I can email you.

Anyway so then I thought to myself, what a Hypocrite, defending Rush Limbaugh and talking like this about his own knocked up wife. And there was her name so I took a look and there it was Domain Name Available, so I bought it and I bought the other one he is so upset about which I have never mentioned or publicized in ANY way, nor will I. It was bought to prove that Marc Randazza is not who he claims to be, OH in my OPINION.

As most of you know by now, I have bought the dot com of countless names of individuals over the years for various reasons. So why subpoena ONLY ONE of them in an asset probe? See what really happened is Marc Randazza was pissed, he wanted an easy way to steal the domain name instead of going through legal channels and filing a WIPO Complaint to go through a process of, if he really had a right to the Domain Name or Not.

So Marc Randazza seemed to have cut a deal with the Plaintiff, the very one he was going to represent me against. And so Marc Randazza was flying to Portland to give a Deposition regarding my assets. I was still pro see in the execution of a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement and all of the sudden the center of the entire case was now surrounding one $10 Domain Name that I purchased AFTER the $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement was Entered.

So I emailed this to Marc Randazza, as I am Pro Se, he emailed right back and said I do not open attachments from this email. So I sent it again in the body of the email. As my own attorney I have a right to ask these question..
http://www.marcrandazza.com/2012/03/crystal-cox-pro-se-blogger-has-some.html

I will be adding to, as the extortion set up and events surrounding it and PopeHat.com, Kenneth P. White, Kasmir Hill Conflicts of Interest, all this and more I WILL ASK in Marc Randazza's Deposition. As of this time, it seems he has not followed through with the Deposition. I will let you know if he does. If Not, then I will ask those questions, after I file my Lawsuit against them. This will be awhile as I am working on Criminal Complaints against Judge Marco Hernandez and Tonkon Torp, as well as Complaints to the Attorney General, and the Oregon Judicial Qualification Committee. As well as a Federal Hate Crime Filing.

Regarding Crystal Cox Extortion Charges: Privileged Communication Between Crystal Cox Defendant in Her Pro Se Capacity and Opposing Counsel David Aman, Tonkon Torp. Email Thread Between Opposing Counsel and Crystal Cox in her Pro Se Capacity. Including the Now Infamous Forbes Extortion Accusation Email.

You Will Note at the Bottom of David Aman's Email asking me what I am proposing there is a Disclosure, the Disclosure Notice on Those Emails is Posted below in QUOTES.

I am posting these emails in order to provide Transparency, I would not have posted these had David Aman, Tonkon Torp Attorney not Leaked my Email to Him to "Big Media" in seeming attempt to incite hate, discredit me, defame me with malice, and attack me, even though he had already WON.

David Aman is the Attorney for the Plaintiff in Obsidian Finance Group Vs. Crystal Cox.

David Aman, Tonkon Torp Lawyer was also involved in the alleged corruption that Crystal Cox Blogger was exposing in the Summit 1031 Bankruptcy. Click Here for That Document. 
And David Aman had been emailed by Attorneys, Insiders as to issues of deferred gain, taxes and other issues regarding the Summit Bankruptcy and knew for years that Crystal Cox Blogger was NOT the One Who exposed this information to the Public at Large.

David Aman also Deposed Whistleblower Stephanie Deyoung in August of 2009 in Video and asked her about Blogger Crystal Cox, yet Never asked me to remove a post nor called me and asked me my "motive". Click Here to Watch the Video of David Aman, Tonkon Torp (the Same Attorney that Sued Me and Continues to Harass me) he took a Video Deposition of Stephanie DeYoung in August of 2009 to ask about Blogger Crystal Cox. AND never contacted me, Crystal Cox, the "Blogger".

Here is the Disclaimer in this Email Thread Regarding the Communication, Privileged Communication Between Crystal Cox Defendant in Her Pro Se Capacity and Opposing Counsel David Aman, Tonkon Torp Law Firm.

"The information contained in this e-mail message may be privileged, confidential, and protected from disclosure.  If you are not the intended recipient, any dissemination, distribution, or copying is strictly prohibited.   ...... If you think you have received this e-mail message in error, please e-mail the sender at davida@tonkon.com"

This misled me, deceived me, in my Pro Se Capacity, that along with the fact that the lawsuit had already been filed, a cease and desist already sent and I was responding to David Aman, Attorney for the Plaintif CONTACTING ME.

I did not email David Aman out of the Blue, and I did NOT Extort the Plaintiff in any way.  I certainly assumed these emails were privileged, private correspondence between Crystal Cox, Defendant (Me) in My Pro Se Capacity and Opposing Counsel David Aman, Tonkon Torp Lawyer for Plaintiff Kevin Padrick and Obsidian Finance Group.

That Email was in Response to the "Letter from David Aman" as you see in the Thread Below and at this link (Click Here) you See David Aman, Tonkon Torp Attorney's Filing called Aman "Reply Memorandum In Support of Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgement", On the Bottom of Page 3 David Aman Says, "In fact, Ms. Cox’s real purpose for falsely attacking plaintiffs, is clear. In
response to plaintiffs’ December 22, 2010 "cease and desist" letter, she wrote the following by email on January 19, 2011:" It was in Response to their Threats in order to STOP a Year Long Lawsuit and in Effort to Negotiate a Cease Fire, I wanted them to Cease Fire and made an Offer, later I learned it was called a "Settlement Communication". I did not know that at First as I had never been sued, and certainly had never been my Own Pro Se Attorney.

And now Kashmir Hill of Forbes, David Carr of the New York Times, Marc Randazza, Kenneth P. White of Popehat.com, Tracy Coenen, Randazza Legal Group, have launched a campaign to set up a Blogger for Extortion when I was not accused of Extortion in an Criminal Complaint, nor was I on trial for extortion and now this Lynch Mob has put me under Extreme Duress and ALL will be named in my Federal Hate Crime Filing, Criminal Complaint, Judicial Complaint, FBI Complaint, Attorney General Complaint, Bar Complaint and Department of Justice Complaint.

I assumed our Communication was under these "Rules", and in December of 2011, David Aman, Tonkon Torp Law Firm emailed this Private, Privileged, Communication between "Counsel" to Forbes and to Seattle Weekly and possibly the New York Times and other Outlets.

This was after Opposing Counsel, David Aman, Tonkon Torp had already won his case against  Crystal Cox, Defendant (Me) in My Pro Se Capacity. The motive is unclear, as the Plaintiff already got what "they" wanted, a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement. SO why leak one email in a thread of several emails  between Crystal Cox, Defendant (Me) in My Pro Se Capacity and Opposing Counsel David Aman ?

The motive is certainly with actual malice, certainly is defaming, paints me in False Light, is misleading to the masses in major media publications, violates my rights to privacy, accuses me of a crime, endangers my life, incites a riot against me and puts me under huge duress for no reason as THEY had already WON their Case, and I was not on Trial for that ONE EMAIL in any way. Nor had I been charged with a Crime.

These Emails were a Communication Between 2 Attorneys in this case as it was between me, Crystal Cox in my Pro Se Capacity and David Aman, Tonkon Torp Attorney for the Plaintiff ( Opposing Counsel ) and it Seems to Proclaim it is Confidential and Should not get into the Wrong hands, thing is this Same Attorney leaked part of these emails to set me up for extortion.

I want to Sue Tonkon Torp and plan to file a Lawsuit in the coming weeks, if you are a White Collar Criminal Attorney, or an Attorney that can represent me in this matter please email me at SavvyBroker@Yahoo.com. I have been harassed, set up, lied to, lied about, discriminated against, my life put in danger and more by David Aman of the Tonkon Torp Law Firm.

I now face daily threats, constant online attacks, and even have a Federal Judge Accusing me of a Crime that I did not Commit, and without a Public Defender which I asked for and without due process to present my side of said email and allegations.  All because of One Email David Aman, Tonkon Torp Lawyer used to attempt to set up a Blogger that was Exposing alleged corruption he and his law firm Tonkon Torp LLP was involved in.  I plan to sue David Aman Personally and Professional. I also Plan to include this Malicious Attack in my Federal Hate Crime Filing, Criminal Complaint, Judicial Complaint, FBI Complaint, Attorney General Complaint, Bar Complaint and Department of Justice Complaint as Soon as I have the time to file it.

And I plan sue Tonkon Torp Law Firm and their Insurance Provider. As well as Forbes for leaking this email without verifying it with me, accusing me of Criminal Activity when I was not charged with a Crime and not Verify the FACTS in attempt to harass me, defame me with actual malice, flat out lie about me to discredit bloggers in general and incite a riot, ruin my business and deliberately tear me down. If you are an attorney that would like to represent me in this matter, email me at Crystal@CrystalCox.com .

Here is the Full Email Thread, Note the First Email is at the Bottom and the Attached Document it talks about is a Letter from David Aman Threatening a Lawsuit.

Below is Several Emails Between Crystal Cox in her Pro Se Capacity and David Aman, Tonkon Torp Attorney for the Plaintiff Obsidian Finance Group, Kevin Padrick and David Brown.

The Emails make the point that I clarified that I was not offering to remove anything for money.

The Emails also show that David Aman, Attorney for the Plaintiff had contacted me first, threatened a lawsuit and my response was to offer a service to negotiate a STOP to this legal action.

And the Emails show that David Aman Baited me, as he asked me what my services and rates would include, what they were, I made if clear that it was not to remove anything, and then he cried I extorted him and his client, Kevin Padrick of Obsidian Finance Group.

These emails are between the Plaintiff's Attorney, and someone acting Pro Se, as their own attorney in MY Pro Se Capacity, AFTER a 10 Million Dollar Lawsuit had been filed against me.

One of the services I offered online was Internet Marketing, so I offered this as a negotiation. The Plaintiff's Attorney, David Aman Tonkon Torp, Offered me a Settlement in which I would pay them, they offered that twice, they called it a "Settlement Communication".

Here is an Offer from The Plaintiff from April of 2011, that I Rejected.
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/117951212/Rejection-of-April-Offer

Here is Their Settlement Offer from November 2nd 2011, just before the Trial,
Which I Rejected.
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/117951595/Cox-Settlement-Offer-Rejection

After they won Obsidian V. Cox, the Plaintiff Flew to L.A. to make me another Settlement Offer, by meeting in person with my Attorney that filed the Motion for the New Trial, BEFORE the Motion for a New Trial was Filed.  I REJECTED this Offer As Well, for it was not good for other Anti-Corruption Bloggers, Citizen Journalists, and Whistle Blowers.

Just Days Ago on April 2nd 2012, the Plaintiff's Attorney made another Settlement Offer, I Rejected it again for the same reasons.  I feel very passionate about this and I want to do right by other Anti-Corruption Bloggers, Citizen Journalists, Whistle Blowers and victims of the Culture of Corruption in America.

Below is Several Emails, a Discussion Between Me, as my Own Attorney (Pro Se) and Opposing Counsel, the Attorney for the Plaintiff.

Altruistic Investigative Blogger Crystal Cox
SavvyBroker@Yahoo.com


There was no "Crystal Cox Extortion" as so many of you are searching online. I am not the "Bad Guy".

So Funny, Marc Randazza and David Aman Claims I Exorted them but they both made me offers I REFUSED.

Marc Randazza offered to buy Marc Randazza.com long ago, though Kashmir Hill of Forbes has the story all wrong, and has not even seen the entire email communication between Blogger Crystal Cox and Marc Randazza nor does she know of the content of the Marc Randazza Crystal Cox phone call.

Anyway, Marc Randazza offered for the Domain Name, then he demanded, both I refused. Then Marc Randazza, to teach me a lesson, called the Plaintiff in Obsidian V. Cox to offer Testimony, a Deposition, to set me up for Extortion though I never Extorted Him. This because he was upset over me buying the Domain Name, which is certainly NOT illegal.

AFTER Marc Randazza Joined Forces with the "Bad Guys", the Plaintiff, 
and I, being my own attorney was given notice of Marc Randazza's Deposition to set me up, then I got upset and AFTER this, I bought several more dotcoms to prove a point, and noticing that Marc Randazza 's wife and daughter's dotcom was available, what better way to make the point of how bad he is at this "Domainer" thing, and how he is NOT the Internet Expert he Claims to Be.

See even after Marc Randazza threatened me for own his dot com and even though he defened  Isaac Eiland-Hall in the buying, owning and using the domain name
"www.GlennBeckRapedAndMurderedAYoungGirlIn1990.com" , still he did not buy the dot com of his beloved, WHAT?


Marc Randazza emailed me and told me I have no right to own a domain name that resembles his name. Talk about Double Standards. Was it extortion for the Glen Beck name to be purchased and used attacking Glen Back and accusing him of rape and murder? This Domain Name "implies"that a Young Girl is a "Minor" right? And it accuses a man of a Rape and Murder. This is Ok in the Eyes of Attorney Marc Randazza, but for some reason me Owning MarcRandazza.com is not, nor Owning JenniferRandazza.com and his childs name, which I bought AFTER he joined the plaintiff to PROVE and to prove Point, and I never Published that Information he did that. Popehat.com Kenneth White and Marc Randazza did that with her photo, as did Forbes Kashmir Hill. NOT ME.

Even after the threat to me for buying MarcRandazza.com, he still was to dumb to buy the dotcom of his own wife and child. I wanted to point out that he was a Fraud in his representation to Potential Clients, as I had interviewed Marc Randazza to possibly represent me, and he was so Disrespectful that I chose a better choice for me and for the Entire Blogger V. Journalist, Free Speech, First Amendment Rights Debate. I did not initiate connect with Marc Randazza, nor Him to me, we agreed to talk through the recommendation of another person, one of my Investigative Bloggers, whom was also on the call.

I never "Begged" Marc Randazza to be my Attorney, in FACT I never even asked. I simply took the call in order to feel out my options, and get more information on what I thought to be Experts in the First Amendment Bar.  I had already been contacted by the Attorney I did choose and was weighing my options. And trying to learn all I could for best of for all who do what I do, so I could make the right decision on the next step for the Greater Good.

Marc Randazza, almost lost me the Attorney I wanted, because Marc Randazza told the Attorney that he represented me. This was after my Attorney had heard through others of the First Amendment Bar that Marc Randazza was representing me.

Those believing I begged him to be my Attorney are Flat Wrong, think about it, why would I do that when I already had what I deem to be the most respected First Amendment Expert. A Legal Scholar who treated me with respect and focused on the Merits of the Case and nothing petty what so ever. I chose a man who is Respectful of my Rights and Talks kind to me, treats me with dignity even if he disagrees he is respectful about it and presents a very Intelligent, Sensible reason why he may disagree.

I had already spoke to this man, and read his incredible resume (Click Here to Read).

And yes I took a call to see what Marc Randazza Had to say, to offer, and out of respect for my Investigative Blogger whom contacted him. And I took the call to explore my options, thing is we did not speak again and next thing I knew, he was telling others he represented me and I had already agreed to work with the Attorney I chose. I had to contact Marc Randazza to tell him he did not represent me and why, I will be posting that email in Full coming soon. No one sentence pulled out as Kash-Shmear Hill likes to do, instead of investigate the entire TRUTH and Real FACTS.

Keep in mind this Plaintiff that Marc Randazza decided to align with was the same Plaintiff he was negotiating with in December of 2011, on my behalf and WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Conflicts of Interest, Talking Behind the Potential Clients Back, Giving Away my Strategy, and completely disrespecting me and violating my right.

So Marc Randazza offered to buy the Domain Name, then Marc Randazza emailed and said you made your point what do you want and now he is Roaring that I extorted HIM, that is simply not true and is a Smoke Screen to cover up what he actually did to me.

Now Cut to David Aman, the Original Accuser of Extortion, and the One whom gave Forbes the infamous, false light defamatory email AFTER he had already won his case against me. See the Media Frenzy saying I am Guilty Until Never Given the Chance to be Proven Innocent, well they all got their Story from David AmanTonkon Torp Attorney for the Plaintiff.  Yet David Aman, Tonkon Torp Attorney in his Frenzy to set me up for Extortion is still making me offers to Settle.

Yesterday, April 2nd 2012 David Aman, made and Offer to My Attorney to Settle. Why do this ? See David AmanTonkon Torp Attorney really wants to set me up for Extortion, he recently Deposed me and it was all about setting me up and previous income instead a real asset probe which would be about future income.

Last Week David AmanTonkon Torp Attorney threatened to file another Motion to Compel with Judge Hernandez to threaten and Harass me some more, this week an offer to Settle. It is all so convoluted.

Marc Randazza of Corbin Fisher Accused of Extortion? Or Was it a Question of Extortion Vs. Amnesity

Marc Randazza of Corbin Fisher ars technica article 

"Standard operating procedure:  file "John Doe" cases against alleged file-swappers and then demand $1,500 settlements to make the charges go away.

Nonstandard operating procedure:   don't file any lawsuits at all but ask those who have shared your company's porn through BitTorrent to voluntarily pay you $1,000.

It may sound odd, but gay porn producer Corbin Fisher this week adopted the latter tactic, telling file-swappers that it has their IP addresses. The file-swappers get a 14-day "amnesty" period under which they can e-mail Corbin Fisher, arrange a $1,000 payment, and keep out of court completely when the company brings its "John Doe" lawsuits later this year. In return, file-swappers get a one-year membership to Corbin Fisher's site.

Ars spoke with Marc Randazza, the first amendment lawyer serving as Corbin Fisher's counsel, about the new approach to turning pirates into customers."

Amnesty or extortion?

Porn producers, especially the small ones, are being thumped by copyright infringement, with some studios seeing 1,000 copies of pirated works online for each legitimate sale. "It's almost as if the porn industry is run on the honor system," says Randazza.

Marc Randazza

He sat down with Corbin Fisher to develop a campaign that would target pirates "in the nicest possible way," a campaign that was not about using the courts or settlement letters as a business model in themselves, but as tools to convert freeriders into paying customers.

The result was the "amnesty" program. Who would voluntarily contact a porn company and pony up a thousand bucks? "A few people," says Randazza, though he admits business is hardly booming.

Corbin Fisher has hired an investigator—it won't say which one—to track down the IP addresses of people sharing its content online, and the company has tracked the addresses over time. Randazza says that when the time comes to sue those who don't settle now, Corbin Fisher will target people who "are contributing significantly to losses" and have been "stealing Corbin Fisher's content for a long time"—not mere downloaders whose IP address shows up only once.

To motivate pirates to participate in the amnesty, Corbin Fisher has been touting a settlement it reached recently with a BitTorrent seeder of this material. That case was settled for $250,000, which is the number Corbin Fisher uses when warning people about how a real court battle could end. Randazza freely admits, however, that the individual in question will only pay $25,000 of that amount so long as he refrains from further piratical activity.

One argument made against the "P2P settlement letter" factories is that they are shaking down users for just enough money that it costs more to hire a lawyer than to settle, and that the cases pit legal professional against thousands of citizens with no legal training and possibly limited resources. Randazza rejects the idea that he's extorting anyone—despite the angry e-mails he has already received from people making this exact claim.

"The fact is, these companies are entitled to make a profit from their creative works," he says, pointing out that Corbin Fisher isn't targeting mashups, or potential "fair uses"; these cases are about wholesale reproduction and sharing. Besides, those who settle now get a year's membership at the site, worth several hundred dollars—and Randazza says they should have paid last year, too, in order to watch the content they did. "
