Where is the race debate in these civil rights issues?

In light of the Martin Luther King, Jr, holiday, the issue of race discrimination, which has not been discussed to this point in any detail, is being addressed here.  In the Welcome page, the primary mission of this site was outlined – access to fair courts.  While our early efforts, as specifically stated in the Welcome, have been structured around the case against Don Bailey, and contextual articles related to that effort, we also pointed out that the issue of race discrimination remains a pressing issue in the 21st Century.  Nothing has specifically been addressed to the race issue to this point, however, because 1)  the issue of race (except as to the clients Don Bailey has represented and continues to represent) has not been directly implicated in the proceedings, and 2) the issue of race reflects much broader social and cultural issues that will take significant effort to present in the proper context.  With Martin Luther King day upon us, however, we feel it is appropriate to direct some introductory comments to this most important topic, and one that will remain a focus of our efforts.  Incidentally, Don Bailey was in the U.S. Congress, and voted for Martin … Continue Reading ››

The Tom Kimmett/Corbett corruption case is a classic example of whistleblower litigation, and the entirety of the Don Bailey disciplinary case is quintessentially whistleblowing, though with … Continue Reading ››
