Today, I formally filed a lawsuit against the TSA and a whole bunch of others regarding events at BOS. (See s.ai/tsa#bos.) I'll post it once it's docketed and I've given it a bit of  touchup (which I'll do shortly - I had to get it in within a hard deadline, and on paper, so it is not my best work).

One thing I will finally get to do: aggressive discovery.

As a start: despite agreed-to evidence preservation demands, and litigation to compel production, I've only gotten video of one angle of one part of the events. Nothing from the pre-secondary search, nothing from what happened outside the area of the table, etc.

My inference is that they destroyed the video evidence. That's called spoliation and obstruction of justice, which is a Very Bad Thing. (It's multiple federal felonies.) So I'm writing up a motion for a subpoena of the missing evidence and all audit logs etc.

If they did destroy it, then basically the court has to assume that any missing video would probably have proven my version of events where our testimony is different. (Plus they might go to prison.)

That's just the start.

Murum aries attigit.

From what news coverage of this I had seen, the voter in question wasn't very favorable towards their cause.

As you probably know, "gerrymandering" is the practice of redrawing the borders of a voting district for a specific purpose, usually if not always to make sure it has more of your supporters than opponents in it. This is nothing...

+benjamin barber I remember my math teacher in elementary school asking me to explain that to the class. I think I did some sort of inductive limit proof by contradiction...

Filed first motion in BOS case. (It's purely meta - to let me file the complaint itself electronically, like lawyers are allowed to. And to allow me to file for IFP w/ sealed affidavit. Still need to draft the complaint.)

Any idea WTF is wrong with my laptop? memtest returns clear, disk utility returns mixed results (clear for gpt, and for system partition, but corruption on bootcamp position), and SMART just hangs at 10%. :-(

+Sai Do you get the same results from a LiveCD? How about in text-only mode (ctrl-f1 on a liveCD)?

I probably can't get to London by Oct 3 to take the LSAT. The closest I can switch to is in Bridgewater, but no public transit will get me there by 8am. :-/

So... would anyone be willing to drive me from Boston to Bridgewater at ass am on October 3? It's 1h drive. (I could get back by myself.)

I need to either change centers or withdraw by Sept 4.

(Oh, and they denied me accommodations, because my SAT and IQ scores are too high, so obviously I'm not currently disabled at all, no matter what my doctors say. Grrr.)

People with LEXIS or similar access: could you please email me (tsa@saizai.com) a copy of A “Top Ten” of New Tort Tools from The New Restatement for Physical and Emotional Harm, Trial Magazine, p. 44, April 2010?

If you have PDFs of the Restatement of Torts (2nd) and especially (3rd), I'd greatly appreciate those as well. Thanks in advance!

Got my 2nd interim release from TSA on my policies & procedures FOIA. 1,395 pages processed, 101 withheld in full, 1,294 released with partial exemptions per (b)(3), (b)(6), and (b)(7)(C). Will try to update soon with details of new docs, but a bit difficult with non-functioning hardware & two major legal briefs due imminently (... plus various other stuff, like medical issues).

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzmetJxi-p0VSkJrR19rMWVaZVk/view

Contents of this batch (approximately):
* 70p Emergency Amendments
* 14p Security Directives
* 327p security programs
* 111p passengers w/ disabilities
* 94p video surveillance storage/access/etc
* 160p no fly etc lists
* 779p BDO training materials

TSA's latest: "Defendants would suffer an unfair detriment and Plaintiff would derive an unfair advantage if, having already produced a response to [my summary of the partial administrative record], they would also have to produce an administrative record."

Also, they still think I should have no ability to make them respond to my complaints, and their regulations and written promises saying they'll respond within 180 days are totally meaningless and unenforceable.

+Edward Morbius That would not be an adequate reply. Anyway, yes it's worth responding to, and I have a reply as of right on the motion to amend my complaint and to get FRCP 56 discovery. Just saying "this is bs" is not a reply that carries any weight; you have to show why it's BS.

Also for instance, the fact that they attached something to their reply on motion to dismiss means that it must be converted to a motion for summary judgment, which has different standards - and in particular, can't be ruled on when there are disputed facts not adequately in evidence.

Yes, I have legal backing. Read #72, 73, 74 @ https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BzmetJxi-p0VS1RDTkZfZHRrdmM#list

So do they, in some part. I think theirs is worse, but what matters is how the judge will rule, so I have to make the strongest possible argument even if I think they fail on their own.

Conlang gone terribly, terribly wrong. A language with 120 words, forcing you to make up phrases for everything. Naturally, different people make up different phrases and don't necessarily understand each other.

+Sai might find this interesting.

Introduction
Hi! My full name is Sai; my handle is saizai.

Right now, I'm primarily working on Make Your Laws (G+), a practical liquid democracy project. I also have CogSai (G+), a YouTube channel about cognitive science.

- I was twice suspended :-/

MYL disclaimer: things I post to my own stream are my own musings, not official positions on behalf of Make Your Laws. If I don't mention MYL, they're not even that, they're just my own personal political beliefs — something I do not mix with the non-partisan, systemic PoV I take with MYL. If you're reporting on MYL, please respect the difference; I do not want to be a public figure, and my personal political beliefs are not relevant.

If I know you outside G+, or if you have something interesting for us to talk about that hasn't come up in comments, please send me a private message. Unfortunately, I just get too many adds to track them. If I don't add you back, that's only a comment about my lack of mental bandwidth, not about you; I still enjoy good crunchy conversation, though.
