I spoke to two smart lawyer friends to make sure I wasn’t being delusional. But I can absolutely claim that I have successfully litigated in the Supreme Court of the United States, Greer v Mehiel 19-1262.
The opposition, the Battery Park City Authority (which is really Governor Cuomo as surrogate), filed at the last minute a motion to extend time to file their response brief to my writ certiorari. They hired a whole new law firm, which was odd. The new lawyer then immediately played dirty tricks to deceive the court. They failed to serve me and I knew nothing about the motion. Therefore, the court rubber-stamped it.
When I learned of this, I filed an application to have the decision vacated. I also made a complaint about their misconduct. That was on Friday. Today, Monday, they ended up not only giving up on the motion, but they also withdrew their efforts to file anything at all.
So, my writ certiorari will go unopposed. On June 18, I will know whether the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case. I have about a 1/1000 chance and am not expecting to have them hear it. But you never know.
Meanwhile, the lawyers lost a lot of legal fees because they are no longer allowed to handle the case. Moreover, the lawyer has an official disciplinary action pending because she deceived the court. By the way, this is the third legal team for the BPCA and fifth legal team for all of the defendants. It does not seem to be a good idea for fancy law firms to tangle with Steven Greer. DFWG
Now, I can definitely say that I have litigated in the Supreme Court and won while not even being a lawyer. Stay tuned.
