Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court

By Collateral Logistics, Inc.,
CEO Steven (“Laser”) Haas
(laser.haas@yahoo.com)
October 18, 2013

Los Angeles – Steven (“Laser”) Haas owns Collateral Logistics, Inc., (“CLI”) locally. Haas sued Mitt Romney for $100 million today for Racketeering in the Central Federal District Court in Los Angeles at 3:47 pm. The case was assigned to the Honorable District Justice Stephen V. Wilson presiding; and Magistrate Justice Alicia G. Rosenberg to hear discovery motions.

Nature of Proceeding

The case is titled “Haas v Romney” and is assigned docket number CV13-07738. District Court Clerk’s office remarked that it may take several days to scan in the initial Complaint.

CLI’s owner Steven Haas (more commonly known as Laser) was compelled to file the Complaint in an alternative venue. The Delaware Bankruptcy Court Justice Mary F Walrath refused to address issues that Plaintiff Haas alleges are frauds upon the court and organized crimes by RICO Romney and his Gang.

Civil Racketeering complaints permit a plaintiff to become a “Private Attorney General” to address issues of “Prosecutorial Gaps”. Plaintiff Laser Haas claims that such prosecution gaps exist. The litigant alleges the former United States Attorney in Delaware (Colm F Connolly) had been a partner at the MNAT law firm in 2001. MNAT represents Goldman Sachs/ Bain Capital.


Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital are named as Co-Defendants

Also named in the lawsuit as “Defendants” are Goldman Sachs (who took eToys public and is accused of fraud), Bain Capital (that bought Kay Bee Toys in 2000) and Michael Glazer (CEO of Stage Stores and Kay Bee who worked with Bain/ Kay Bee to buy eToys) and Barry Gold (who worked as director’s assistant at Stage Stores and then became a post-bankruptcy petition President/CEO of eToys in May 2001. Plus Paul Traub is named (who confessed in 2005 that he was secretly Barry Gold’s partner). Mr. Traub was also partners with fraudster Marc Dreier and named by the Federal Receiver over Tom Petters Ponzi as “controller” thereof.

Colm Connolly was also named as “co-defendant” personally.

Previously, yours truly tried to address this issue in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court; but the judge and clerk there played unlawful/unethical games and refused to docket the October 24, 2012 filing - until November 6, 2012 (where Romney couldn't be hurt by the press learning the facts).

See the Delaware Bankruptcy Court filing of October 24, 2012 - online at Scribd (Here).

This is the Los Angeles California Federal District Court Complaint filed today (here).


If Mitt and his Gang do not manage to get the filing put under SEAL - or dismissed by corruption - the trial promises to be a doozie. Our Racketeering complete has Razor sharp teeth.

SUMMING up the Racketeering case in a nutshell.

Romney WAS the Bain Capital CEO when the following frauds transpired

  1. The Learning Company (worst corp merger of ALL time - lost $3 billion)
  2. Stage Stores (formed with Michael Milken fraud monies & corrupt judge]
  3. Kay Bee Toys (CEO Glazer paid himself $18 million and Bain $83 - then filed Bankrutpcy}
  4. eToys (a case that provides proof of federal corruption extraordinary)
  5. U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly was a Bain law firm partner



Civil RICO (Racketeering Influence Corrupt Organizations Act) permits any U.S. Citizen to become a "Private Attorney General" to go after people who are falling between the cracks in "Prosecutorial Gaps".

Romney, Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs are (always have been) - Above the Law

Federal corruption is protecting him in "Deal"aware.

We're going to see if the same holds true in California.

If the media picks this up - the evidence is So Strong - the RICO loses



ROLLING STONE September 2012 Cover Story by Matt Taibbi "Greed and Debt" The True Story About Mitt Romney and Bain Capital; details part of the Racketeering case.


That Mitt got his moneys for Stage Stores from junk bond fraudster Michael Milken;
because the judge's wife was a partner of the Stage Stores deal.

AND

That Michael Glazer (CEO of Kay Bee) paid himself $18 million;
and Bain $83 million - before filing bankruptcy of Kay Bee.

That documents fraud and corruption in the past;
and our eToys case demonstrates how it evolved worse.

But - when you RIP OFF hundreds of millions of dollars out of any retail chain these days; the demise becomes a far gone conclusion.

Both Kay Bee and eToys were in Bankruptcy multiple times;
and still wound back up under Bain (via Toys R Us).

Gee, what could possibly be wrong with taking over a company, extracting 101 million for the ceo and Bain capital and then declaring bankruptcy? When you are politically connected that's just good business. More than likely this will all just disappear. If there was any justice Mr Robme would be doing fifty to a hundred years in prison.

Paul Traub is Pitten's version of Frank Nitti.

I expect Mitt will never ever - even see - the inside of a courtroom;
but someone has to pay the piper on this.

Traub was partners with 1/2 dozen other fraudsters too.

Including Marc Dreier (doing 20 years)
Tom Petters (doing 50 years)
Okun 1031 Tax Group (doing 100 years)

and here's one that will get you

Larry Reynold's laundered $12 BILLION for Traub/Petters
doing so while in Vegas and under federal investigation for years.

and also - while IN WISTEC

21. It was a scam from start to finish

Goldman Sachs took eToys public in 1999

www.MNAT.com is THE Delaware powerhouse law firm that represents GSachs.

stock went to $85, but eToys on received $20.
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/10/opinion/sunday/nocera-rigging-the-ipo-game.html?_r=0

Also in 1999, MNAT merged The Learning Co with Mattel
Wikipedia says it was the worst merger of all time
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Learning_Company
LOST investors $3 Billion
(apparently NO one knows that Romney owned TLCo)

In 2000, Stage Stores filed bankrutpcy
Romney owner, Michael Glazer as director
Barry Gold as director's assistant
who hired his partner Paul Traub.

Bain buys Kay Bee Toys in the fall of 2000
Michael Glazer is also CEO of Kay Bee

MNAT lies and hides its connections to Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital
to be the DE Court approved attorney for eToys

Traub lies about his connections to Bain, GSachs, Mattel, Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo and Barry Gold.

When yours truly came on and actually saved eToys (merger with Scholastic)
MNAT, Traub and - they inserted Barry Gold as President/CEO

Who were all (secretly) working for Romney/ Bain Cap/ Kay Bee (and hence Glazer)

So they nixed the Scholastic deal
and reduced the sales prices to Bain/Kay Bee (massive bankruptcy fraud)
such as eToys.com domain name for $10 million
they reduced to only $3 million.

Plus, MNAT, Traub and Gold - while PRETENDING to be opponents
nominate Traub's firm to sue Goldman Sachs.

Hence, Goldman Sachs sued Goldman Sachs.

and eToys, lost, losses, lost again
while the public company is destroyed
and the bankruptcy estate is Robbed!

Kay Bee and eToys are in bankruptcy multiple times
and still wind right back up with Romney/ Bain/
under Toys R Us brand

Because (though it is illegal) - if NO one will arrest you for it
Going bankrupt - over and over again - guarantees profit
at creditors and investors loss

The following year, it went bankrupt for good. (it was his only/last investment ever). I wondered because it always seemed fishy to me.

26. Well, don't count it as a loss YET.

Due to the fact that the case going public and they know I've got the evidence - the STOCK is still trading (at $.02 per as symbol "etysq")

Because they had to keep the case where they could (corruptively) control it (in Delaware); they have left an evidence trail that a blind, deaf, mute could successfully prosecute them with.

And - there is NO statute of limitations
(especially when you possess your very own {non-investigating} corrupt U.S. Attorney)

If a miracle should occur and the court here in SoCal does not give in to the powers

That stock can be made to trade again

I think I smell rotten garbage wafting through my computer. Hope this gets picked up by the media. And even if Romney never sees the inside of a courtroom, this can't be swept under the carpet. It's MASSIVE corruption on a scale that deserves as much scrutiny as the Enron case. Sidebar....Teddy Cruz's wife is an exec at Goldman Sachs. Can you profit from a government shutdown?

And by activist lawyers, I mean lawyers who routinely challenge corrupt government officials, lawyers and elected officials.

67. Oh, I'm taking baby steps.

It would help to find a lawyer to confirm my conclusions. Meanwhile, I continue to gather documents and that requires filing public record requests. I'm at the stage of needing a lawyer to take it to the next level.

A major step for me is to build a platform. This matter will need to go public before I have any chance in court. This case has several layers and involves a municipality which had a total government breakdown.

It cannot be summarized easily, but I will try, once again. Since the seventies, our local government violated many laws they felt were too intrusive, which is what you would expect from an area that was Republican and leans to the small government format. For example, they ignored state zoning laws and failed to file important documents with the state. One of those documents was an important blueprint for their city, called a Comprehensive Plan. Without this plan it gave the city way too much latitude to resolve conflicts through court settlement agreements, which was a process that usually excluded the public. It was re-zoning by court order. There was one settlement agreement in particular signed in 1991 or 1992, which would become the city attorney's downfall.

In the nineties the residential leaders of a 3500 acre P.U.D. began to organize in order to influence the city's arbitrary process. For example, in the early nineties they organized a massive protest and managed to stop the plans to a grocery store that was zoned by their own P.U.D. In the mid nineties they used the court systems to stop an exit to an overpass that would have connected an expressway with one of their main roads. They did this by hiring an attorney that also represented a private client who was in opposition with the city's agenda. And by 1996, the leaders of this residential area began to win elections. Once elected, they began to use what they learned about the city's corrupt process and would take it further. With the help of their private cronies, lies and/or misinformation were spread in the community to expedite projects that came before their commission. It was a legal mess that involved fraud and conspiracy.

The city attorney was no help because his failings were exposed in the spring of 1997. Once exposed, there was no moral high ground for him to work from. In fact, the mayor would essentially fire him at the end of that year.

Frankly, the city attorney should have faced disciplinary action for the way the city was run under his watch. As a city attorney, he should have counseled the city about the legal jeopardy they were in because they had no Comprehensive Plan to back up their zoning decisions. He was also in trouble because there were at least two major conflicts of interest that involved private clients. This is where he would look the worst (in my opinion), but the elected officials would be given enough rope to hang themselves and it would end up with a Mexican stand-off between him and the corrupt elected officials of that time.

Those elected officials and the community leaders were on shaky ground from the beginning, which makes it curious because they had attorneys they relied on for counsel. Let's just say it leaves room for a lot of speculation when you note that their counselors came from the same law firm as the attorney that the city would bring in as a special counselor. What seems to be obvious in retrospect is that their objective had no chance of prevailing in a federal court, but no one seemed to anticipate that the developer they were fighting against would opt for a federal judge and avoid the local process.

What the community leaders and elected officials were trying to do was exert their rights through the 1991 Settlement Agreement which gave the developer the right to build residential property along designated areas around his private golf course. In that agreement there were conditions that were established. One of them involved the tennis courts on the private Country Club. (And since it was a private Country Club, you can guess who was behind the opposition.) What seemed to be the disquieting factor for this group was the discovery that the settlement agreement was written in a way that gave the developer the right to remove the private tennis courts to build his new properties, but ALSO GAVE HIM THE RIGHT NOT to reconstruct them. And this is where the whole thing began to get nasty. For reasons that I can't explain, no one had picked up on this wording even though the 1991 Initial Settlement Agreement had an amendment change in 1994.

It is important to understand that this was not a David vs. Goliath story. What makes the opposition group less sympathetic, was a devious plan hatched in inside circles that intended to benefit from the developer's misfortune. So, at the same time that the elected officials were exerting their influence to delay the developer's projects, their cronies were taking the initial steps to look for local investors/partners to purchase the bankrupted property. The perception does not look good.

The course of events began in a Planning and Zoning board meeting held in November 1996. With the city attorney's knowledge, the board stalled the project with the excuse that they needed a legal opinion regarding various legal matters before proceeding. As the local leaders were waiting for that opinion, they were also organizing within the community. Most notably, a political HOA group was bringing in ALL the presidents from ALL the HOAs inside of their P.U.D. I couldn't tell you what they discussed in those meetings because my HOA president never called us in for a meeting that year. In fact, in 1997 we didn't even come together to vote in new officers.

From those meetings that were sponsored by the political HOA group only sign-in sheets remain. So I can tell you that our HOA president attended at least two of those President meetings, and another member of my community, ( a friend of the Mayor's), attended the meeting, identifying himself as a realtor.

The legal opinion that the city was awaiting would finally arrive in the spring of 1997 and it was obvious (to me) that it was a delay tactic. The opinion stated that the developer had to file state zoning amendments before they would even consider his plans. I mean, how could the city require these time-consuming filings, when it did not have a solid foundation of filing the proper paperwork with the state? The city had a small government mentality and had a track record of doing things their own way. It would have been easy to expose their arbitrary nature in court.

Everything began to fall apart for the city when the plaintiff's lawyer turned up in a city commission meeting that took place in April of 1997. He pointed out that the 1991 Settlement Agreement was a contract that essentially made the city and the developer partners because it was the city's responsibility to file any necessary filings. That was clearly stated. If there was any paperwork required, the city had the obligation to file it. This is something the city attorney should have known since he represented the city when the 1991 Settlement Agreement was put together. But all this time he had stayed mum about that fact, and in the meantime he had brought in law firm in after law firm as special counselors, and they would eventually become co-defendants with the city. With all these legal minds brought in to represent the city's side, this would later make it near impossible for any ordinary person to locate a lawyer in the area, who wasn't touched by this conflict. (A further complication was finding lawyers who would not volunteer the fact that they had a conflict of interest.)

In the case filed by the developer, a federal judge would render a ruling in the summer of 1998 which would be interpreted by the city's litigators that the plaintiff prevailed in making a case for estoppel. In other words, by signing that 1991 Initial Agreement the city had made promises to the developer, so now the city must be stopped from adding additional requirements and the commission should approve his projects.

All this would reflect badly on the city attorney, but he would not go down alone. He ratted out the elected officials, giving the litigators enough information to confirm there was a conspiracy perpetuated by the elected officials which had undermined the developer's rights. Before this information became public, the litigators quickly closed the case with a two million dollar settlement which also contained a confidentiality clause.

That confidentiality clause allowed the elected officials to complete out their terms and win their next elections. It also allowed their cronies to get away with "a story" that included fraud. That fraud involved one of the developments that the developer had tried to develop. It was the final phase of the development that I lived in. The Mayor's buddy, who lived in my development, had lied to us from the beginning and deprived us of our legal standing when the final phase of our development went up for city review in 1998--about the same time that the federal judge was making her initial judgment. Ten years earlier the Mayor's buddy had signed the papers that turned our Association over to us and gave us control of our own Association. But he kept this information to himself. Instead, he convinced us that we had no legal standing and that our best chance of winning concessions from the new developer was to forgo a replat of the property. He claimed that our leverage would come from saving the developer time and money. As it would turn out, the replat would have also exposed his fraud.

I am not naive. I know there were older residents in the community who must have known he was lying, but they kept this to themselves.

In other words, many of us were as much victimized as the developer who won a two million dollar settlement agreement from the city and its co-defendants.

Since then, the bonds between the co-conspirators have strengthened over the years, creating a dual society. One is bound to keep the secret, and is rewarded for that effort; and the rest of us are left to play the "I got mine, you get yours" game, or we live our lives short of the promises of the American dream.

Through every step of the methods they use in this city, you will find several examples that would support a case for RICO.

73. I realize that this might not be the direction you wish to go in,

but there are several organizations that will fund large suits for, of course, a large percentage of any award. There was an article in the New York Times about them and some of them are quite shady. I did look up one in SF Bay Area that at least had a fairly decent website. http://www.lawfinance.com/funding.html.

I am very surprised by the response you got from CREW. I have occasionally donated to them as they do some very important work in keeping our government honest. However, I did see your case is now being discussed on The Daily Kos. I think if it makes the rounds of all the prominent liberal blogs, TPM and Think Progress come to mind, you will get some organization willing to help you.

One last suggestion, and not a very good one but here goes: Use organizations like Move On and Change.Org to start a petition to the justice department to at least discuss the case with you and in a perfect world, help you in court. You will get a lot of signatures from this site.

Sometimes the fight for Justice IS noble - even if the cards is stacked against you.. And sometimes even the small man, get their Justice - and the big all powerfully man get the shaft - and maybe even have to pay back what he owe the little man.. Who he have had just disdain for, all his life... And he might even end up in a prison somewhere.. That would be a fitting end for the Mitters... He have a sea of ruined life in his wake - people who just wanted to make a living for them self - maybe earn some money and have a comfortable life...

I have always had disdain for "corporate raiders" and I have to admit - I have a specially disdain for Mitt Romney - I just do not like his type to much.. A thief in a suit, nothing more than thief.. And in to many cases people like that, never get their justice, and have to face time for their criminal plunder of others work..

And the worst of it, is that in many cases, the raiding of others honest work - is totally legal.. That is the worst of it... And for the ones who got plundered - it is very difficult to get justice for their loss.. So I think you is a very brave man who is fighting this fight...

Yeah I know - "to big to fail".... No bank, should be above the law - and no "invest company" should be above justice... Everyone who do crime, should be punished if they do it.. If Goldman Sachs had been convicted of their crimes - and had to pay the REAL money to owe the world - then I suspect the others would had been able to "do the right thing" all the time... The US must rebuild their laws - and keep the banks - all of them... And keep them all on a tight strope - so they KNOW who are in control. Not them, but the justice system... In Norway we had to regulate the banks in early 1990s - in fact in most cases more or less nationalize the bank system as they had failed, miserably in the 1970s and 1980s... Now most of the banks is not nationalized anymore - even as the government still own shares in the biggest banks - and we have a rather strict bank law, who regulate the banks strict.. But even then some is able to play the system.... But it is more difficult than maybe in other country's where the law is deregulated into oblivion..

Yeah I have been reading about it - but even if 10-12 billion dollar is a LOT of money - it is still not enough - for JP Morgan for the crimes THEY benefited from when they was rigging, and more or less ruined the world economy.. If Justice was to be served, to JP Morgen and the other "banks" heads should roll - from fleet street to Wall Street and then some around the corner.. And the biggest bankers should be paraded around the town - for everyone to tell them their disdain for their theft, for their plundering and ruining of peoples life... JP Morgen should pay back every single cent they have illegally being earing since they broke the economy in 2008.. Every single cent - to every victim of their crimes..

And then - the bosses should be thrown in jail - in maximum security setting no less for many years...

But that is just my humble opinion then..

95. Oh, okay

I saw the part about it taking "days" to scan, and assumed it hadn't.

Yes, it's a classic 103 page rant, which won't survive a preliminary motion.

85. Nothing I can do about it - if they choose to do me in.

Already others dead here - and eToys shareholder Alber had to shoot/kill one after his life was threatened.

They abducted my daughter years ago.

So, I've stayed thousands of miles away and lost my family - in essence;
while I'm fight to get back their inheritance...

86. Did you know the founders of Clear Channel now own Blackwater?

Red McCombs was co-founder of Clear Channel

and he now owns Blackwater (renamed Academi)

I'm messing with a guy, who has access to his own Mercenary Army

102. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. If Romney has to declare bankruptcy,

I'll be glad to adopt his poor dog Seamus, who'd probably be a lot happier with my two girl dogs and me. At least we wouldn't strap him to the roof of a car, especially not when he was sick. Now stop that! the fact that I no longer have a car is quite beside the point. But if I did still have one, I'd gladly strap Mutt to the top and drive around in circles until he got dizzy and puked. Then I'd haul him down, hose him off, stick him back up there, and keep on as long as I felt like it. A tasty dose of his own medicine.

Dogs I'm good to. Not always people so much.

105. LOL - you meany.....

G-d has blessed me well.

I wish this twerps no ill will - not even jail
(except for those involved in sedition and/or physical harm of others)

Just want to stop them from stealing
(they are still doing it this very day in eToys)

and get back what they stole.

Perhaps from those "Off Shore" accounts

107. If it's true that "Romney, Bain Capital and ..." are above the law, as you say,

 

I wouldn't put too much confidence in a RICO lawsuit.

Here's where some have expressed their views about Judge Steven V. Wilson (not "Justice" Wilson):

111. Madoff was above the law, as was Nixon, Agnew

Petters, Dreier.

They all are (for a while)

Until that LONGGGGGGGGgG arm reaches them

As for the Judge, I'll give the court all my respect;
until it gives me a reason to do otherwise.

I'm expecting a fair chance to present my case.

108. This is a crackpot lawsuit.

If it was legitimate the U.S. Attorney would have filed it. Private individuals don't sue each other for $100 m for RICO claims. The U.S. Attorney for this district is an Obama appointee in 2010 but still corrupt...Right??

109. He's been at it for years

Every couple of months, he has yet another ranting legal filing somewhere which is going to bring Mitt Romney to his knees, each time accompanied by breathless announcements on DU, Kos, and other forums in which he is the hero in an epic battle for justice.
