Dan Siegel & Pacifica Radio (tags)
Dan Siegel is now both interim Executive Director and General Counsel for Pacifica. He intervened in last fall's KPFA board election to help insure a victory for the Sherry Gendelman slate. Meanwhile, the board election at WBAI, the Pacifica sister station in New York, was even more blatantly corrupt than the one at KPFA, and it became the subject of a court case. In this letter, counsel for the plaintiffs tells the Pacifica National Board (PNB) that Dan Siegel is "an unreliable source of legal advice and facts about this lawsuit."

JUDGE ALARCON THROWS OUT RALPH HOROWITZ’S LAWSUIT (tags)
The court ruled that the plaintiffs had not alleged facts or provided the court with evidence showing that the Farmers had engaged in a willful act in their use of the preliminary injunction that was not proper in the regular conduct of the legal proceedings. The court held that under case law in California, even if a party files an action that it knows is substantively meritless and does so for an improper purpose, these facts alone do not constitute a claim for abuse of process. The Horowitz plaintiffs had to show that the Farmers used the preliminary injunction in an improper way after they obtained it. The plaintiffs failed to allege or show in their opposition brief any such misuse of the injunction, and because they did not, the court granted the Farmers’ motion and dismissed the plaintiffs’ lawsuit.
