1 PLAINTIFFS RESPONSE IN OPPOSITION TO DEFENDANTS


2
ANTI-SLAPP MOTION and MOTION TO DISMISS

3
COMES NOW Plaintiffs, Philip J. Berg, Esquire [hereinafter at times
4
5 “Berg”]; Lisa Ostella [hereinafter at times “Ostella”]; Lisa Liberi [hereinafter at
6
times “Liberi”]; Go Excel Global and Law Offices of Philip J. Berg and files the
7
8 within Response in Opposition; Memorandum of Points and Authorities; and

9 Declarations in Opposition to Defendants, Orly Taitz [hereinafter at times “Taitz”]


10
and Defend our Freedoms Foundations, Inc. [hereinafter at times “DOFF”] Anti-
11
12 SLAPP Motion and Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and
13
12(b)(6). In support hereof, Plaintiffs aver the following:
14
15
1. Taitz’s Motion is again not in compliant with this Court’s Local Rules

16 [L.R.] in that she failed to use double spacing [L.R’s. 11-3.2 and 11-3.6];
17
paragraphs are not properly numbered [L.R.11-3.2]; Taitz Memorandum of Points
18
19 and Authorities exceeded the twenty-five [25] page limit [L.R. 11-6] ; and Taitz
20
failed to give proper notice [L.R. 6-1].
21
2. Taitz has previously filed an Anti-SLAPP Motion, See this Court’s
22
23 Docket Number 61 filed June 16, 2009; and several Motions to Dismiss pursuant
24
to the Fed. R. of Civ. P. 12, which is completely improper. Further, Taitz and
25
26 DOFF waived all their affirmative defenses by not timely pleading them and not

Liberi, et al, Plaintiffs Opposition to Taitz and DOFF Anti-SLAPP Motion and Motion to Dismiss 2
Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186 Filed 05/05/11 Page 3 of 5 Page ID
#:4325

1 raising them in their previous Fed. R. Civ. P. 12 Motions to Dismiss and therefore,
2
they are precluded from doing so now. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(g)(2).
3
4 3. The California Anti-SLAPP statute, California Civil Code [“Cal. Civ.
5 Code”] §425.16 and the First Amendment of the United States Constitution does
6
not apply to speech which invades ones privacy; is false, slander, libel, and/or
7
8 defamation; constitutes Cyber-stalking, Cyber-harassment, and/or Cyber-bullying;
9
and/or violates any other protected right. Therefore, Taitz’s Motion fails.
10
11 4. Plaintiffs have a pending Motion for Leave to Amend their

12 Complaint, Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) does not apply as full diversity exists; and
13
Plaintiffs have stated claims in which relief can be granted and therefore, Taitz and
14
15 DOFF’s Motion pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) fails.
16
5. Plaintiffs OBJECT to Taitz and DOFF’s Exhibits attached to their
17
18
Motion as they are unauthenticated, hearsay, double and triple hearsay documents

19 in violation of the Federal Rules of Evidence [“Fed. R. Evid.”]. Further, Taitz and
20
DOFF’s Exhibits do not fall under any of the Exceptions outlined in the Fed. R.
21
22 Evid. and were filed to prejudice the Plaintiffs; therefore, Taitz and DOFF’s
23
Exhibits are inadmissable.
24
6. Plaintiffs Opposition is based upon their Opposition, the attached
25
26 Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support hereof; Declaration of Philip J.
27
Berg, Esquire; Declaration of Lisa Liberi; and upon records on file with this Court

1 and such further oral and/or documentary evidence that may be presented at the

time of the Hearing.

4 7. For the reasons stated herein, Defendants Taitz and DOFF Anti-
5 SLAPP and Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6)

must be denied. In addition, Plaintiffs seek Leave to File their First Amended

1. On May 4, 2009, Plaintiffs, Philip J. Berg, Esquire, [hereinafter at
25
26 times “Berg”] Lisa Ostella [hereinafter at times “Ostella”] and Lisa Liberi
27
[hereinafter at times “Liberi”] filed suit against Defendants Orly Taitz [hereinafter

2
“DOFF”]; Neil Sankey [hereinafter at times “Sankey”]; Sankey Investigations, Inc.
3
4 [hereinafter at times “Sankey Inv.”]; and The Sankey Firm, Inc. [“hereinafter at
5 times “Sankey Firm”] for amongst other things, Invasion of Privacy; Invasion of
6
One’s Right to Solitude; Placing One in a False Light Before the Public; Cyber-
7
8 stalking; Stalking; Cyber-bullying; Harassment; and violation of Cal. Civ. P. 1798,
9
et seq. for the illegal background checks, illegal access to Plaintiffs credit reports,
10
11 contacting and harassing Plaintiffs friends and family and for the illegal

12 distribution of Liberi and Ostella’s full Social Security number, date of birth,
13
mother’s maiden name, maiden names, place of birth, spouses name, spouses
14
15 Social Security number, spouses date of birth and other extremely private
16
information. Said suit was originally filed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern
17
18
District of Pennsylvania and recently transferred to this Court.

19 2. Defendant Taitz has also filed approximately six (6) Motions, if not
20
more, Motions to Dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12, all of which were denied,
21
22 as documented by the Court’s Docket. Also, as this Court is aware, a party is only
23
entitled to file a Motion to Dismiss pursuant to the Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 12 on one [1]
24
occasion and anything not raised in the initial Motion is deemed waived, thus
25
26 Taitz’s Motions were incompliant with the Fed. R. Civ. Proc.’s. Taitz asserted the
27
Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. 1937, 1949, 173 L. Ed. 2d 868 (2009), and Bell

(2007) cases as a basis for dismissal, however, the Pennsylvania Federal Court
3
4 found Plaintiffs Complaint compliant with the pleading requirements outlined in
5 Iqbal and Twombly and denied Taitz’s Motions to Dismiss.

3. Plaintiffs incorporate herein by reference Taitz’s Anti-SLAPP Motion

9
May 28, 2009; 48 filed May 28, 2009; 53 filed June 9, 2009; 59 filed June 11,

13
4. Plaintiffs incorporate herein by reference Plaintiffs Oppositions to
14
15 Taitz’s Motions to Dismiss pursuant to the Anti-SLAPP statute and Fed. R. Civ. P.
16
12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) as if fully set forth here in length, Docket Numbers 49 filed
17
18
June 8, 2009; 54 filed June 11, 2009; 63 filed June 18, 2009; 64 filed June 21,

20
no’s 106 filed August 26, 2009; 107 filed August 27, 2009; and 110 filed
21
22 September 29, 2009.
23
5. Taitz has now filed, on behalf of herself and DOFF, another Anti-
24
SLAPP Motion and Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and
25
26 12(b)(6), which is completely improper as Taitz and DOFF waived their

have a pending Motion for Leave to Amend their Complaint.

II. CALIFORNIA’S ANTI-SLAPP STATUTE, CAL. CIV. CODE

§425.16 DOES NOT APPLY TO THE WITHIN ACTION.
8
9 7. Plaintiffs incorporate by reference their Complaint, Docket Entry No.

1 filed May 4, 2009, as if fully set forth here at length.
11
12 8. Plaintiffs also incorporate by reference the preceding paragraphs as
13
if fully set forth here at length.
14
15
9. Taitz in her Response to Plaintiffs Application for an Ex Parte Order

16 stated Plaintiffs committed fraud upon the Court by stating Taitz had filed a
17
previous Anti-SLAPP Motion. Taitz states she has never filed an Anti-SLAPP
18
19 motion. [See Taitz filing of April 30, 2011, Docket No. 182, p. 2, ¶5].
20
10. Taitz statement is untrue. To set the record straight, Taitz filed an
21
Anti-SLAPP motion, almost identical to the one she filed April 25, 2011, on June
22
23 16, 2009 appearing as Docket No. 61. See the screen shot below:

12 11. A cause of action is subject to being stricken under the Anti-SLAPP
13
statute when two [2] conditions are met. The cause of action must (1) arise from
14
protected speech or petitioning; and (2) lack even minimal merit. See Navellier v.
15
16 Sletten (2002) 29 Cal.4th 82, 89 [124 Cal. Rptr. 2d 530, 52 P.3d 703]. See also

18
19 3d 298, 106 P.3d 958]. Our Courts determine whether the two [2] conditions have
20 been met by using a two-step inquiry that involves shifting burdens.
21
12. The first prong must determine ‘whether the Defendant has made a
22
23 threshold showing that the challenged cause of action’ arises from an act in
24
furtherance of the right of petition or free speech in connection with a public issue.
25
26 Taitz and DOFF are unable to over-come this first prong. Taitz’s repeated

4 13. Liberi and Ostella are not public figures, they are not in the public
5 eye and their lives are not newsworthy and nothing in Ostella and Liberi’s lives are
6
a public issue. Despite this, Taitz has continued Slandering, Libeling and
7
8 Defaming Liberi, Ostella and Berg on radio shows, TV shows and publications on
9
her website and the internet which is not tolerated by the laws of our State and/or
10
11 our United States Constitution, and has caused permanent damage to the Plaintiffs.

12 14. As demonstrated by all the Exhibits filed by Plaintiffs, Taitz


13
continued publishing pictures of Liberi, Liberi and Ostella’s private data, including
14
15 but not limited to full Social Security number, date of birth, place of birth and
16
mother’s maiden name, spouses names and private data, etc. Taitz and the other
17
18
Defendants conducted illegal background checks and illegal access to Plaintiffs

19 credit reports; Taitz repeatedly published false statements about the Plaintiffs,
20
including but not limited to “Liberi is a career document forger; Ostella and Liberi
21
22 stole monies from Taitz non-profit foundation, DOFF (Plaintiffs have not stolen
23
any monies from Taitz or DOFF. Regardless, Taitz claims DOFF is a non-profit,
24
however, Plaintiffs cannot locate DOFF’s registration as a non-profit
25
26 organization); Liberi was convicted of Identity Theft, Forgery of Documents,
27
Falsifying Police and Credit Reports, real estate fraud, Ostella forged Taitz’s

1 name/signature, that Ostella had a criminal record, Liberi handled Berg’s


2
fundraising, Liberi had access to Berg’s donators credit cards, Liberi’s husband
3
4 was on parole, Liberi and her husband had two (2) credit card accounts set up on
5 Berg’s website, that Ostella’s husband was benefiting from the monies stolen by
6
Ostella, Liberi, Ostella and Berg were harassing, slandering, defaming Taitz, etc.,
7
8 all the time knowing the information was false. Taitz publicized all these false
9
statements repeatedly with malice.
10
11 15. Taitz continued publishing in excess of a hundred times, that Liberi

12 had a criminal record and published a “supposed” rap sheet or court print-out, the
13
same documents Taitz stated on numerous occasions was that of Plaintiff Lisa
14
15 Ostella. Additionally, Taitz filed numerous false law enforcement reports claiming
16
Liberi and Ostella were the same person, that Liberi and Ostella stole monies from
17
18
Taitz’s foundation, that Liberi and Ostella “hijacked” Taitz’s website, etc.

19 16. The repeated publication and publicizing of Taitz false statements,


20
and information pertaining to Liberi, Ostella and Berg evidences malice. See

2
Rptr. 137, 690 P.2d 610].
3
4 17. False allegations, accusations and reporting of the false information
5 are not Free Speech protected by the First Amendment to the United States
6
Constitution. See Beauharnais v. Illinois, 343 U.S. 250, 72 S. Ct. 725, 96 L. Ed.
7
8 919 (1952), (the Court held that libelous speech is not protected by the U.S.
9
Constitution). Plaintiffs herein are not public figures, however, even if they were,
10
11 there is absolutely no question that Taitz’s false allegations were done with Malice

12 and therefore, are not protected under the First Amendment of the U.S.
13
Constitution or California’s Anti-SLAPP statute. See New York Times v. Sullivan,
14
15 376 U.S. 254, 84 S. Ct. 710, 11 L. Ed. 2d 686 (1964). See also Dunn & Bradstreet,

17
18
[stating that when speech "concerns no public issue" and is "wholly false and

19 clearly damaging," it "warrants no special protection" under the First Amendment].


20
It is settled in California that not all speech or petition activity is constitutionally
21
22 protected. See Flatley v. Mauro, (2006) 39 Cal.4th 299, 313; Aguilar v. Avis Rent A

1 "abuse[s]" the right of freedom of speech "responsible" for the misconduct.” (Cal.

Const., art. I, § 2, subd. (a); See Brown v. Kelly Broadcasting Co., (1989) 48
3
4 Cal.3d 711, 746.
5 18. The second prong is whether the Plaintiffs have demonstrated a
6
probability of prevailing on the claim. Plaintiffs agree they must Amend their
7
8 Complaint to bring it in compliance with the California Laws. However, there is
9
no question whether Plaintiffs will prevail on their claims. Defendant Taitz’s
10
11 statements were not free speech but instead were false personal attacks on

12 Plaintiffs; a violation of Plaintiffs privacy rights; and constitute Cyber-stalking,


13
Cyber-harassment and Cyber-bullying; Slander, Libel, Defamation; Harassment
14
15 and other violations. The law is that there must be a public interest in the specific
16
speech or conduct alleged in the complaint: “‘The fact that “a broad and
17
18
amorphous public interest” can be connected to a specific dispute is not sufficient

19 to meet the statutory requirements’ of the Anti-SLAPP statute.”. See World


20
Financial Group, Inc. v. HBW Ins. & Financial Services, Inc., (2009) 172
21
22 Cal.App.4th 1561, 1570 [92 Cal. Rptr. 3d 227]; See also Episcopal Church Cases,

24
19. Taitz continued publishing that Berg is employing a convicted
25
26 “document forger and thief” and foreign affidavits were filed in one of Berg’s
27
cases which was handled by a “career document forger”. Taitz further claims that

1 Liberi fundraises for Berg and has access to credit cards, which is harmful to
2
Berg’s donators. [Taitz Motion, pp. 5-12]. Liberi has never been convicted of
3
4 forging documents or document forgery. Liberi is a paralegal; she researches the
5 laws and drafts briefs pertaining to a legal issue. Liberi does not fundraise; Liberi
6
does not have anything to do with Berg’s financial accounts. Further, Taitz and
7
8 the other Defendants did not have authorizations from the Plaintiffs, nor any type
9
of permissible purpose or legal basis to conduct background checks, obtaining
10
11 Plaintiffs private data and/or credit reports. Taitz and the other Defendants did not

12 have any type of permissible purpose and violated our very laws by publicizing
13
Liberi’s full Social Security number, date of birth, place of birth, pictures, maiden
14
15 name, mother’s maiden name, father’s name, home address and telephone number,
16
Liberi’s husband’s name, date of birth and Social Security number, and the private
17
18
identifying information of Ostella, and her husband. Taitz continues claiming she

19 is a “whistleblower”, which is not true. Whistleblowers report on actual violations


20
and/or crimes, they do not create them based on false information, as Taitz has
21
22 done.
23
20. Taitz continues claiming that Liberi and Berg filed the case in
24
Pennsylvania claiming Liberi was an innocent woman and resided in Pennsylvania
25
26 based upon Taitz’s disclosure of Liberi’s “criminal record”. This again is
27
completely false. First, Taitz has not disclosed any “criminal record” of Liberi’s.

1 Taitz has been publishing and republishing a print-out obtained from an unknown
2
place. This same print-out has been altered several times by the Defendants in
3
4 their claims about Liberi and this same print-out that Taitz claimed was the record
5 of Plaintiff Ostella. Liberi has never disclosed her residency in the Court
6
pleadings; however, Taitz has published Liberi’s home address and telephone
7
8 number all over the Internet. This lawsuit was filed based on the harassment,
9
falsified stories, falsified allegations, and the publication of Plaintiffs private data,
10
11 etc. by the Defendants, not for the reasons Taitz would have you believe.

12 21. Plaintiffs have clearly demonstrated a probability of prevailing on


13
their claims for Invasion of Privacy; Slander, Libel, Defamation; Cyber-stalking,
14
15 Cyber-bullying, Cyber-harassment; Appropriation of one’s name and like;
16
harassment; and their other causes of action.
17
18
22. In the words of the Supreme Court, Plaintiff needs to show only a

19 “minimum level of legal sufficiency and triability.” Linder v. Thrifty Oil Co.,
20
(2000) 23 Cal.4th 429, 438, fn. 5 [97 Cal. Rptr. 2d 179, 2 P.3d 27].) In the words
21
22 of other Courts, Plaintiff needs to show only a case of “minimal merit.” Peregrine

24

1 23. For the reasons stated herein, Taitz and DOFF’s Anti-SLAPP Motion

12
25. Plaintiffs also incorporate by reference the preceding paragraphs as if

13 fully set forth here at length.


14
A. Taitz and DOFF’s Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1) Claims:
15
16 26. A Rule 12(b)(1) challenge to subject matter jurisdiction can be
17
“facial,” in which case the Court assumes the Plaintiff’s factual allegations to be
18
true and draws all reasonable inferences in its favor. Doe v. See, 557 F.3d 1066,
19
20 1073 (9th Cir. 2009); Castaneda v. United States, 546 F.3d 682, 684 n. 1 (9th Cir.
21
2008). Or, the motion may be a “factual” or “speaking” motion, where the movant
22
23 may submit materials outside the pleadings to support its motion. In that case,
24 “‘[i]t then becomes necessary for the party opposing the motion to present
25
affidavits or any other evidence necessary to satisfy its burden of establishing that
26
27 the court, in fact, possesses subject matter jurisdiction.’” Colwell v. Dep’t of

2

3
4 27. Taitz claims this Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction based on
5 Plaintiffs filing of Diversity jurisdiction. Taitz claims Plaintiffs have not satisfied
6
the Diversity requirement by providing her with proof of Liberi’s home address.
7
8 [Taitz Motion, pp. 13-17], and that Judge Robreno Ordered Liberi and Berg to file
9
Liberi’s Driver’s License [Taitz Motion p. 16]. This is ludicrous. Judge Robreno
10
11 has never ordered Liberi to file her Driver’s License with the Court. Liberi did

12 provide her address information to Judge Robreno on August 7, 2009 in Open


13
Court as well as in writing “under Seal”. Taitz has published Liberi’s home
14
15 address numerous times, for protection reasons Liberi has not provided her home
16
address in Court pleadings due to the continued harassment, cyber-stalking, cyber-
17
18
harassment, cyber-bullying and Taitz continued inciting against the Plaintiffs. See

19 Plaintiffs response to the Court’s Order to Show Cause appearing as Docket Entry

1 28. Taitz filed Liberi’s home address in this Court’s Docket on July 29,
2
2010 appearing as Docket Entry No. 136, in part two 136-1, page 17, ¶4.
3
4 29. Taitz does not have any valid reason to access Liberi’s Driver’s
5 License as she is demanding [Taitz Motion, p. 16]. Taitz will publish Liberi’s
6
Driver’s License on the Internet and all over the World Wide Web as she has done
7
8 with Liberi and Ostella’s full Social Security number, date of birth, place of birth,
9
home address, father’s name, mother’s maiden name, and other private confidential
10
11 information, which Taitz illegally obtained. As demonstrated by Taitz filing, Dkt

12 No. 136-1, p. 17, ¶4, Taitz was already fully aware of where Liberi resides. Taitz
13
is defrauding this Court by her continued attempts claiming Liberi resides in
14
15 California. Further, Liberi showed Judge Robreno her Driver’s License, Social
16
Security card and Birth Certificate on August 7, 2009 to prove Liberi did not
17
18
reside in the State of California. In addition, this Court should have documents

19 provided to Judge Robreno “under Seal” with Liberi’s home address.


20
30. Liberi will not provide her Driver’s License to Taitz for the reasons
21
22 mentioned above and for the reason Liberi is concerned Taitz attempted to hire a
23
dangerous man to harm Plaintiff, her family and Plaintiff Ostella and her family.
24
Ironically, this person, Ruben Nieto resides in Albuquerque, NM forty-five [45]
25
26 minutes from Liberi’s home and attempted to get paid by Taitz on two (2) separate
27
occasions in consecutive requests from PayPal totaling Twenty-Five Thousand

1 [$25,000] Dollars. As this Court is aware, any payments over Ten Thousand
2
[$10,000] Dollars are reported pursuant to the Patriot Act. Liberi will be happy to
3
4 show her Driver’s License to the Court in Camera, if the Court feels it necessary.
5 Also, during this time, Taitz and her Assistant, Charles Edward Lincoln, III drove
6
around New Jersey where Ostella and her family reside and her children attend
7
8 school, this was after Taitz threatened to have Ostella’s children professionally
9
kidnapped. As a result, Ostella and her family sold their home to an Investor, at a
10
11 loss, out of fear of having people view their home while they were there, and

12 moved to protect their family from Taitz and her supporters.


13
31. Further, Taitz published on her website several times that a report she
14
15 filed against Ostella and Liberi was forwarded to New Mexico as that is where
16
Liberi resides. See Taitz post on her website at
17
18
http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=1346 where Taitz states that Theresa Standford of

19 the Orange County Sheriff’s Department sent Taitz’s criminal report against
20
Ostella and Liberi to the Santa Fe Police Department where Liberi resides. See
21
22 also Taitz’s post, “More on Lisa Liberi, contact her probation officer in Santa

8 33. Dismissal under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) is appropriate only where the

complaint lacks a cognizable legal theory or sufficient facts to support a cognizable
10
11 legal theory.” Mendiondo v. Centinela Hosp. Med. Ctr., 521 F.3d 1097, 1104 (9th

12 Cir. 2008). For purposes of a Motion to Dismiss, the Plaintiff's allegations are
13
taken as true, and the court must construe the complaint in the light most favorable
14
15 to the Plaintiffs. Jenkins v. McKeithen, 395 U.S. 411, 421, 89 S.Ct. 1843, 23
16
L.Ed.2d 404 (1969). “To survive a motion to dismiss, a complaint must contain
17
18
sufficient factual matter, accepted as true, to ‘state a claim to relief that is plausible

19 on its face.’ A claim has facial plausibility when the Plaintiff pleads factual
20
content that allows the court to draw the reasonable inference that the Defendant is
21
22 liable for the misconduct alleged.” Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S.Ct. 1937, 1949, 173

1 34. Taitz first raises the issue of “Count 1”; Plaintiffs assume she means
2
Plaintiffs First Cause of Action. Taitz claims Plaintiffs did not raise viable issues
3

5 Code §1798.81 [Taitz’s Motion, p. 17, ll. 15-28, pp. 18-20, ll. 1-28]. Taitz states
6
that Plaintiffs claim a violation as a result of Taitz publishing a report by Sankey
7
8 “showing Liberi’s criminal record” [Taitz Motion, p. 17, ll. 15-28]. This is a
9
complete fraud upon the Court by Taitz and a purposeful false recitation of
10
11 Plaintiffs First Cause of Action.

12 35. Plaintiffs clearly claim the violation of privacy was Taitz and the
13
other Defendants illegal access and distribution of Liberi and Ostella’s full Social
14
15 Security number, date of birth, place of birth, mother’s maiden name, father’s
16
name, address and other private data; as well as Taitz slander, libel and defamation
17
18
falsely accusing Liberi of being convicted of “identity theft”, “real estate fraud”,

19 altering/forging Police and Credit Reports”; having 46, 80, 100, 200 criminal
20
counts against her; having a current criminal case pending against her, and many
21
22 other false statements about Liberi, Ostella, Berg and invasion of their privacy.
23
Plaintiffs cite to Cal. Civ. Code §1798.81.5(c) which has to do with a business that
24
discloses personal information…pursuant to a contract with a nonaffiliated third
25
26 party and the requirement of a contract that the third party implement and maintain
27
confidentiality of the private data. This is far different than Taitz’s claim of Cal.

Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-2 Filed 05/05/11 Page 19 of 25 Page ID
#:4351

1 Civ. Code §1798.81. See Plaintiffs Complaint, p. 62, ¶¶ 144-157. The invasion of
2
privacy by Taitz and DOFF, as plead, are also in violation of Cal. Civ. Code §§
3
4 1798.84 and 1798.53. See Witriol v. LexisNexis Group, (N.D.Cal., Feb. 10, 2006,
5 No. C05-02392) 2006 U.S.Dist. Lexis 26670.
6
36. Taitz next refers to Plaintiffs Second Cause of Action. Taitz contends
7
8 that this cause fails as truth is a true defense to slander and Taitz published Liberi’s
9
criminal convictions, and states Plaintiffs failed to provide any evidence [Taitz
10
11 Motion p. 24, ll. 14-28; p. 25, ll. 1-28]. A complaint is only supposed to put the

12 Defendants on notice as to what they allegedly did wrong, notice pleading. See
13
Fed. R. Civ. P. 8. Plaintiffs have filed hundreds of pages of Taitz’s posts
14
15 substantiating their causes of actions. If the allegations are disputed the issues of
16
proof are diverted to Trial, not in the initial stages of a lawsuit. Taitz again
17
18
misleads this Court. As clearly plead in Plaintiffs Complaint, Liberi claims the

19 Libel, Slander and Defamation pertained to Taitz false statements that Liberi had a
20
criminal record going back to 1990; Liberi had convictions of amongst other
21
22 things, identity theft, falsification of police reports, falsification of credit reports,
23
falsification of documents, claiming Lisa Liberi and Lisa Ostella were one and the
24
same, falsely inferring and stating Liberi murdered her sister, falsely claiming
25
26 Liberi and Ostella were diverting funds from Taitz’s PayPal account; falsely
27
claiming Liberi and Ostella were working together; falsely claiming Liberi was a

Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-2 Filed 05/05/11 Page 20 of 25 Page ID
#:4352

1 “career forger”; falsely accusing Liberi of being convicted of numerous counts of


2
forgery; falsely claiming Liberi was diverting funds from Berg and the Law
3
4 Offices of Philip J. Berg; falsely claiming Liberi was posting on blogs under
5 aliases; falsely claiming Liberi was committing crimes, falsely claiming Liberi,
6
Ostella and Berg were “trashing Taitz”, falsely claiming Liberi had to pay Twenty-
7
8 One Thousand [$21,000] Dollars per month in restitution, falsely claiming Liberi
9
was convicted of amongst other things, identity theft, falsifying police reports,
10
11 falsifying credit reports, forging documents, etc. See Plaintiffs Complaint on p. 66,

12 ¶¶ 158-166.
13
37. Taitz then claims that the allegations regarding Ostella were all true,
14
15 that Taitz provided truthful information. The fact is, Taitz falsely accused Ostella
16
of stealing from her; “hijacking” her (Taitz’s website); of having a criminal record,
17
18
and many other things. Taitz then misquotes Ostella’s testimony during the

19 December 20, 2010 Restraining Order Hearing. Ostella has never stolen anything
20
from Taitz, never diverted anything from Taitz. For protection purposes, Ostella
21
22 did lock the website access of all of her (Ostella’s) websites. Ostella changed the
23
PayPal script for the donation button to reflect her own account on
24
defendourfreedoms.net and redirected defendourfreedoms.us, the site Taitz was
25
26 using, to point to a lawsuit by someone named Arnold Beverly and removed
27
Taitz’s accounts from the site. Ostella placed notifications on all her webpages

1 that the sites were no longer Taitz’s Defend our Freedom Foundation, Inc. and
2
Ostella posted “Understanding the Internet 101” at
3
4 http://defendourfreedoms.net/2009/04/12/understanding-the-internet-101.aspx to
5 ensure people understood Taitz’s sites were never ”hacked”. It is important to
6
note, Ostella’s PayPal account was never on the site (blog database) Taitz was
7
8 using, defendourfreedoms.us.
9
38. Taitz next claims Plaintiffs cause for Harassment, Count 4 fails. Taitz
10
11 then cites to the criminal statute for harassment, “Ann. Cal. C.C.P. §527.6(b)”.

12 [Taitz Motion, pp. 29, ll. 22-28; p. 30, ll. 1-5.] Taitz is incorrect again; this is a
13
civil case and Taitz has continually harassed the Plaintiffs, as recent as May
14
15 2011. Harassment is defined as: “a knowing and willful course of conduct directed
16
at a specific person that seriously alarms, annoys, torments, or terrorizes the
17
18
person, and that serves no legitimate purpose. The course of conduct must be such

19 as would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress, and


20
must actually cause substantial emotional distress to the person. See Cal. Civ.
21
22 Code §1708.7(b)(4). Plaintiffs clearly demonstrated the harassment, cyber-
23
stalking, cyber-harassment, and cyber-bullying by Taitz continued posting,
24
publications, broadcasts, and interviews continually providing Plaintiffs private
25
26 data; false allegations against Plaintiffs; Taitz seeking third parties to harass the

#:4354

1 Plaintiffs; Taitz publication of Liberi’s pictures; Taitz false claims of victimization,


2
etc. See Plaintiffs Complaint at pp. 72-73, ¶¶ 174-181.
3
4 39. Taitz next states that Plaintiffs Counts Five and Six are frivolous and
5 without merit. Counts Five and Six are well explained in Plaintiffs Complaint. See
6
Plaintiffs Complaint pp. 75-79, ¶¶ 182-196.
7
8 40. Taitz does not make any mention of Count Three of Plaintiffs
9
Complaint. For the reasons stated herein, Taitz and DOFF’s Motion must be
10
11 Denied. Plaintiffs have clearly pleaded valid claims; however, Plaintiffs do need

12 to amend their complaint, and therefore requests this Court to grant them leave to
13
amend. Lucas v. Dep't of Corr., 66 F.3d 245, 248 (9th Cir.1995).
14
15
IV. TAITZ AND DOFF EXHIBITS VIOLATE THE FED. R. EVID.
16
801(c), 805 AND ARE INADMISSABLE PER FED. R. EVID.
17 802; and CONTAIN UNAUTHENTICATED DOCUMENTS IN
18
VIOLATION OF FED. R. EVID. 901, 902 and 1005

19 41. Hearsay is defined as “a statement, other than one made by the


20
declarant offered in evidence to prove the truth of the matter asserted.” See Fed. R.
21
22 Evid. 801(c). Fed. R. Evid. 805 is the Hearsay within Hearsay rule, none of the
23
exceptions apply to Taitz and DOFF’s filings. “Hearsay is not admissible except
24
as provided by these rules…”. See Fed. R. Evid. 802; See also Bourjaily v. U.S.,
25
26 483 U.S. 171, 175, 107 S. Ct. 2775, 97 L. Ed. 2d 144 (1987). Taitz and DOFF’s

#:4355

1 exhibits attached to their Motion as well as many statements in their Motion are
2
hearsay, double and triple hearsay and therefore are not admissible.
3
4 42. Taitz and DOFF’s Exhibits filed with their Anti-SLAPP and Motion
5 to Dismiss, filed April 25, 2011, Docket No. 178 include attachments and Exhibits
6
which are unauthenticated in violation of the Fed. R. Evid. 901, 902 and 1005.
7
8 43. Authenticity of evidence, in the broad sense of the word, is
9
fundamental to litigation and is one of the most basic functions. There are several
10
11 ways outlined in the Fed. R. Evid. regarding the authentication of evidence, none

12 of which Taitz and DOFF complied with. As the Ninth Circuit has held, “The
13
authentication of a document requires ‘evidence sufficient to support a finding that
14
15 the matter in question is what its proponent claims’” Id. Quoting Fed. R. Evid.
16
901(a). “A document authenticated through personal knowledge must be attached
17
18
to an affidavit, and the affiant must be a competent “witness who wrote [the

19 document], signed it, and used it, or saw others do so.” Orr v. Bank of Am, NT &
20
SA, 285 F.3d 764, 773 (9th Cir. 2002), Id at 773-774 & n. 8 quoting Fed. R. Evid.
21
22 901(b)(1).
23
44. In particular, Docket No. 178-2 pages 1-8 are “supposed” court
24
records, however, they are not certified and no one from the Court has attested to
25
26 the authenticity of the documents and are hearsay, double and triple hearsay
27
documents; Docket No. 178-3 is a “supposed” Court transcript, which is not a
28

Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-2 Filed 05/05/11 Page 24 of 25 Page ID
#:4356

1 complete document, it is not certified, and does not contain a certification from the
2
Transcriber and therefore is unauthenticated and is hearsay, double and triple
3
4 hearsay; Docket No. 178-4 pages 1-16 is a statement by Geoff Staples with
5 attached copies of emails which have been altered and forged, illegally inputting
6
Plaintiff Liberi’s email address, see Docket No. 146 filed October 7, 2009. Geoff
7
8 Staples statement and attachments are untruthful, hearsay, double and triple
9
hearsay and therefore are inadmissible; and Docket No. 178-5 is an Affidavit of
10
11 Linda Belcher which contains untruths, hearsay, double and triple hearsay and

12 therefore, is inadmissible.
13
45. For these reasons, Taitz and DOFF’s Exhibits must be excluded and
14
15 not used by the Court as evidence as they are unauthenticated, hearsay, double and
16
triple hearsay and inadmissible, Fed. R. Evid. 802.
17
18
19 V. CONCLUSION:
20
46. For the reasons outlined herein, Defendants, Orly Taitz and Defend
21
22 our Freedoms Foundations, Inc. Anti-SLAPP Motion and Motion to Dismiss must
23
be Denied. In addition, Plaintiffs Request this Court to Grant them Leave to
24
Amend their Complaint.

21 I, Lisa Liberi, am over the age of eighteen [18] and am a party to the within

action. I have personal knowledge of the facts herein, and if called to do, I could

and would competently testify. I am making this Declaration under the penalty of

25 perjury of the Laws of the United States pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1746.


26
1. I filed suit against Ms. Taitz and the other Defendants as a result of
27
28 the illegal background check conducted on me; the illegal access of my credit

1 reports; the illegal disclosure of my full Social Security number, date of birth,
2
place of birth, mother’s maiden name, father’s name, home address, telephone
3
4 number, the harassment of my friends and family, and Ms. Taitz’s disclosure of my
5 private details to John Mark Allen, my son’s father who my son and I were
6
provided protection from as a result of the crimes committed against us. Ms. Taitz
7
8 continues twisting the reasons Plaintiffs filed suit and continues misstating the
9
truth.
10
11 2. Ms. Taitz continues stating I am a career document forger and that I

12 have a criminal record going back to the 1990’s. This is not true; I do not have a
13
criminal record going back to the 1990’s and I have not been convicted of forgery
14
15 of documents or document forgery.
16
3. Ms. Taitz knows where I reside as she put my home address out all
17
18
over the Internet and filed it with this Court on July 29, 2010. In fact, a dangerous

19 criminal, Ruben Nieto, who attempted to get paid by Ms. Taitz lives in
20
Albuquerque, New Mexico, forty-five [45] minutes from my house.
21
22 4. Ms. Ostella was set-up as Ms. Taitz’s customer contact in Ms. Taitz’s
23
PayPal account. This did not give Ms. Ostella access to Ms. Taitz accounts, but
24
instead it carbon copied Ms. Ostella’s email address for PayPal payment requests
25
26 from Ms. Taitz’s PayPal account.

1 5. Further, Ms. Taitz has harassed every governmental agency in New


2
Mexico to the point they called in the New Mexico Attorney General to put a stop
3
4 to Ms. Taitz harassing and illegal behaviors.
5 6. Moreover, Ms. Taitz called on her readers, followers and supporters to
6
contact the law enforcement agency where I reside; she continued calling on them
7
8 to further cyber-stalk; cyber-harass; and cyber-bully me, which they did.
9
7. I have received nonstop phone calls stating I am going to meet my
10
11 maker real soon if I don’t drop this lawsuit against Ms. Taitz. I have had strange

12 individuals show up at my home, peeking in my windows, scrambling my phones,


13
all after Ms. Taitz’s publication of my home address and telephone number.
14
15 8. My local law enforcement has been forced to take reports for stalking,
16
cyber-stalking, cyber-harassment, cyber-bullying; fraud; forgery; identity theft;
17
18
threats, where they have listed the prime suspect as Orly Taitz. This is a result of

19 Orly Taitz publishing and continued republishing of her threats against me, her
20
calling for her supporters for help regarding me; and her continued publishing of
21
22 my full Social Security number, my maiden name, my mother’s maiden name, my
23
father’s name, my home address, my place of birth, my date of birth and my
24
husband’s primary identification information. As a result, my husband and my
25
26 identities have been stolen, our credit has been used repeatedly, accounts have
27
been set-up fraudulently in our names using our identifying information, my credit

1 report shows me residing in States I have never resided including but not limited to
2
Massachusetts and Iowa. All the law enforcement reports were forwarded to the
3
4 Federal Bureau of Investigations as the crimes crossed several state lines.
5 9. As a result of Ms. Taitz’s continued harassment, cyber-stalking,
6
cyber-bullying, cyber-harassment, and other illegal acts, I have had to have
7
8 emergency service from the paramedics numerous times, emergency room visits,
9
cardiac treatments and hospitalizations due to the complications I suffered with my
10
11 heart and other medical conditions, resulting from stress induced by Orly Taitz and

12 the other Defendants. This has cost my family in excess of $250,000.00. My


13
medical bills to date were provided to Judge Robreno on December 20, 2010.
14
15 10. Ms. Taitz is well aware of what she is doing; she has talked about my
16
medical complications on her radio shows, TV appearances and in her pleadings
17
18
filed with this Court.

19 11. Ms. Taitz is well aware of the fact I do not reside in the State of
20
California. Ms. Taitz has stalked my son; has published trips my son has taken;
21
22 and private details about my son. My son attends school in New Mexico where we
23
reside and admitted to this in Ms. Taitz’s statements in her radio appearance on the
24
Andrea Shea-King Radio show which can be found on the Internet at
25
26 http://www.blogtalkradio.com/askshow/2010/08/31/the-andrea-shea-king-
27
show.mp3. In this Radio program, Ms. Taitz states:

Declaration of Lisa Liberi 4


Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-3 Filed 05/05/11 Page 5 of 7 Page ID
#:4362

1 “…Against Neil Sankey, a top notch private investigator who was the
2
first one to find all of this information on Social Security
3
4 numbers…I'm sorry but this woman Lisa Liberi is supposed to be
5 back in prison…And I have provided directions, I have provided the
6
pictures. Here's her picture that came from her boyfriend: ‘That's Lisa
7
8 Liberi, I have a child with her”’.
9
12. As I am sure this Court is aware, directions can be to a location or it
10
11 can be to do something.

12 13. Ms. Taitz continues in this radio program accusing me of being a


13
career document forger; and then states I accused her of trying to hire a “hitman”
14
15 to kidnap my son, and then Taitz asks her audience, did something happen to
16
Liber’s son? I have never claimed Taitz attempted to hire a “hitman” or that Ms.
17
18
Taitz was going to have my son kidnapped. Ms. Taitz is the one who continually

19 uses “hitman”. I have stated that it appears Ms. Taitz has attempted to hire a
20
dangerous criminal to harm Lisa Ostella, me and our family’s.
21
22 14. Orly Taitz threatened to take Mr. Berg down and to do so she was
23
going to destroy me and get rid of me. Ms. Taitz also threatened to have Ms.
24
Ostella’s children professionally kidnapped. A man in Albuquerque, NM attempted
25
26 to get paid by Ms. Taitz in three [3] consecutive money requests totaling Twenty-
27
Five Thousand [$25,000.00] Dollars. The requests came in consecutively in the
28

Declaration of Lisa Liberi 5


Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-3 Filed 05/05/11 Page 6 of 7 Page ID

1 amount of Nine Thousand [$9,000.00] Dollars and two (2) in the amount of Eight
2
Thousand [$8,000.00] Dollars totaling Twenty-Five [$25,000.00] Dollars, as on
3
4 file with this Court. Mr. Nieto requested payment twice, on May 25, 2009 and
5 May 29, 2009, in the middle of the night. It was concerning to see the requests
6
were under the Ten Thousand [$10,000.00] Dollar reporting amounts pursuant to
7
8 the Patriot Act.
9
15. A spokeo was run on this man, Rubin Nieto and his email address.
10
11 Spokeo returned that Mr. Nieto resided in Albuquerque, NM and provided his birth

12 date. A simple search of the New Mexico Judiciary System returned Mr. Nieto’s
13
convictions for Aggravated Assault. Further searches confirmed Mr. Nieto was
14
15 not an Attorney, or a Private Investigator, or a trade which a licensed attorney
16
would hire for permissible purposes. Instead, Mr. Nieto has websites selling porno
17
18
and marijuana seeds.

19 16. So yes, I do believe Ms. Taitz attempted to hire this man to carry out
20
her threats towards me and Mrs. Ostella, to harm me and my family and harm Mrs.
21
22 Ostella and her family. Ms. Taitz never disputed that Mr. Nieto’s PayPal money
23
requests were not from her PayPal account. I asked Ms. Taitz on December 20,
24
2010 in Judge Robreno’s Courtroom if she was saying the PayPal account the
25
26 money requests from Mr. Nieto was not her PayPal account, and Ms. Taitz
27
answered “NO”, because they were. See the December 20, 2010 Transcript, page

Case 8:11-cv-00485-AG -AJW Document 186-4 Filed 05/05/11 Page 2 of 6 Page ID
#:4366

1 District Courts, Middle and Eastern District of Pennsylvania; the Third


2
Circuit Court of Appeals; the Pennsylvania Supreme Court; and the U.S.
3
4 Supreme Court.
5 2. Plaintiffs were forced to file suit against Defendants, including Orly
6
Taitz and Defend our Freedoms Foundations, Inc. for their illegal
7
8 background checks, illegal access of Lisa Liberi and Lisa Ostella’s credit
9
reports, and the publication of all their confidential primary identification
10
11 information. The publication of private data included but was not limited to

12 their full Social Security numbers; dates of birth; place of birth; mother’s
13
maiden name; father’s name; credit details; and other private data.
14
15 3. Plaintiffs did not bring suit as a result of Taitz disclosure of a
16
“supposed” criminal record of Liberi. However, in Plaintiffs Complaint
17
18
there is a cause of action for Slander, Defamation and Libel as a result of

19 Defendants publication that Liberi had been convicted of crimes that she had
20
not been; Defendants false publication that Ostella had a criminal record;
21
22 that Liberi has a criminal history going back to the 1990’s; that Liberi has a
23
pending criminal case against her; that Liberi and Ostella stole monies from
24
Taitz and her Foundation; that Liberi and Ostella “hacked” Taitz PayPal
25
26 account and website, and many other false accusations.

1 4. Taitz still to this date continues claiming Liberi is a “career forger”


2
and been convicted of forgery of documents and forgery, which is not true.
3
4 Liberi has never been convicted of forging documents or forgery of any
5 documents.
6
5. Plaintiffs have filed a Motion Seeking Leave to Amend their
7
8 Complaint. However, Plaintiffs are also Seeking to Amend their Complaint
9
in their Response in Opposition to Defendants Taitz and Defend our
10
11 Freedoms Anti-SLAPP Motion and Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Fed. R.

12 Civ. P. 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6).


13
6. Further, Taitz has claimed she never filed a previous Anti-SLAPP
14
15 Motion and Plaintiffs have committed Fraud upon the Court by claiming she
16
had. The truth of the matter, as demonstrated by the Docket, Taitz filed an
17
18
Anti-SLAPP Motion almost identical to the one filed April 25, 2011, on

19 June 16, 2009, which appears as Docket Entry No. 61.


20
7. Further, Taitz claims that this Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction
21
22 in that Liberi has not proven to her or provided her with her (Liberi’s)
23
Driver’s License. Liberi is not a citizen of the State of California and Taitz
24
has failed to address why she feels diversity is lacking. Diversity is proven
25
26 by the fact that none of the Plaintiffs reside in the same state as any of the
27
Defendants. None of the Plaintiffs reside in the State of California. It is not

1 a requirement that every party provide their Driver’s License in Diversity


2
Cases.
3
4 8. Taitz is well aware of where Liberi resides. Taitz has called for her
5 supporters to commit certain acts where Liberi resides. Taitz has filed false
6
police reports against Liberi where Liberi resides; Taitz has harassed the
7
8 Probation Department where Liberi resides; Taitz has published repeatedly
9
Liberi’s home address and telephone number as well as filed it with this
10
11 Court.

12 9. Taitz threatened to take me down and to do so she said she was going
13
to destroy Lisa Liberi, my paralegal, and get rid of her.
14
15 10. Liberi, for security reasons, will not provide Taitz her Driver’s
16
License. Taitz has given Liberi’s home address to a man who was convicted
17
18
of crimes against Liberi and her son, who a restraining order was pending

19 against and as a fact, Liberi was provided a confidential address for her and
20
her son’s protection. Taitz will publish Liberi’s Driver’s License as she has
21
22 done with Liberi’s Social Security number, date of birth, place of birth,
23
mother’s maiden name, father’s name, etc.
24
11. Liberi is a certified Paralegal. Liberi does not fundraise for me; she
25
26 does not access any of my financial accounts, does not have access to any of

1 my donor’s credit card details and Liberi is not an Investigator. Liberi


2
researches the laws and drafts briefs accordingly.
3
4 12. Taitz continues claiming that she is a whistleblower and the public
5 had a right to know that Liberi was a career document forger and that Liberi
6
has been convicted of a crime, etc. Again, Liberi has never been convicted
7
8 of forging documents. Taitz fails to tell this Court she employed
9
approximately five (5) felons, some with convictions of forgery and others
10
11 with violent convictions. Charles Edward Lincoln, III has a felony

12 conviction(s); Larry Sinclair has felony convictions and served prison time;
13
Lucas Smith has felony convictions of forgery of identification documents
14
15 and Taitz filed a “forged” Kenyan Birth Certificate in President Obama’s
16
name procured by Lucas Smith in Judge Carter’s Court; and several other
17
18
felons; however, Taitz never disclosed any information pertaining to them.

19 13. The conduct of the Defendants, as outlined in Plaintiffs Complaint


20
and will be better outlined in Plaintiffs First Amended Complaint constitutes
21
22 cyber-stalking; cyber-bullying; cyber-harassment; invasion of privacy; and
23
other dangerous conducts. As a result, the Plaintiffs have suffered severe
24
damages.
