I am searching for an attorney who will pursue this case in Federal District Court


Ray Rothbard,137 IBLA 159 (1996)

The B.L.M. lacked authority to issue a notice to cease and desist mining operations under 43 CFR 3809.3-2, because such action required an appropriate court order, which had not been obtained."

These are the civil rights violations they have NOT been prosecuted for:
42USC 1983, 1985, 1986 1987
18USC 241, 242, 1341, 152, 1001
31USC 3802
43CFR 20.735

On 7/23/97 I filed a complaint for damages with the Office of Hearings and Appeals (Arlington office) which was finally denied.

After many phone calls in following up my original March 1994 complaint filed with the Inspector General, I have concluded they will not prosecute their own for fear of proven liability (collateral estoppel).

In a FOI Request (Freedom of Information Act), I received a four page memo (7 months wait) with the Solicitor's misleading response to my complaint (which was proven false by the above decision). In addition I have 20 fraudulent statements in documents sent to me. My mining activities have been illegally blocked (despite all the violations above). I have found that I cannot resume mining (sand and gravel) since they CONTINUE to slander, harass, and intim- idate both me and my clients as they remain UNPROSECUTED.

I need to pusue this matter in a fair court.

I have documented proof of all of the above allegations.
In pursuing justice against the BLM employees who have committed all of these felonies, the appropriate agency is the Inspector General. Mike Sedbrook of the IG Colorado office has told me he is only one of 28 agents and is too busy to deal with a low priority case such as mine.
