Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?

A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”

It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.

Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.

Concise enough? :)

For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.

In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.

A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P

The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.

Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.

These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.

For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.

There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.

The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.

I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.

I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:

Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

Kiraly Cases

This is the most significant material. Some of the more important items are listed first. Other items are listed in reverse chronological order.

Kiraly Cases Story This link goes to a different version of this list. It's limited to the most important items and will eventually present things more in story form.
Kiraly Case Notes for Attorneys Attorneys in particular, please start with this document. It's an attempt to produce formal documentation.
Case Notes Draft 130120 PDF This is another attempt to produce formal documentation.
Case Notes Draft 130120 HTML If you can't open PDF files or you prefer web pages, use this link instead of the preceding one.
Infamous Kiraly Documents PDF The Infamous Set is a 69-page document set that the Kiralys view as controversial. The documents are disorganized, contain overlapping material, and need a lot of work. But they're not bad considering that OldCoder ended up in the Emergency Room while he was writing the first draft.
Infamous Kiraly Documents HTML This is an HTML version of the preceding PDF document that can be browsed as a single giant web page.
130114 Stipulation Letter Letter from OldCoder attorney to Opposing Counsel regarding Stipulation. This is presently in PDF format only. Cellphones may not be able to read it.
130114 Stipulation Document OldCoder's attorney offered the other side this Stipulation document. It surrendered on most significant points other than CLETS. They turned it down so that they could press for CLETS. This is presently in PDF format only. Cellphones may not be able to read it.

Spring 2013 — Free Speech Memorandum

See the Disclaimer before downloading.

OldCoder's attorney indicated that a Motion to Limit Scope could be done for about a hundred dollars. In the end, OldCoder paid about $5,000 for an unusual document. Sort of a Free Speech Memorandum.

Note: The exact figure is not clear. The idea was that the document was supposed to obtain fees for OldCoder prior to the end of the legal cases. For the rest of the story and to download the document, click here.

If you'd just like to get the Free Speech Memorandum itself and skip the story, click here instead. Note: The format is PDF. PDF files don't work with some browsers and/or mobile devices.

Disclaimer: The link goes to a draft and not to an Endorsed as Filed copy of the Memorandum. The document is not represented to be anything but an unmodified copy of a draft that was provided to me by my attorney which, I am led to believe, was ultimately filed with the Court, possibly in some other form. The exact cost is not presently known.

130704: Letter to Lisa

The link on the left goes to a personal letter. More precisely, to a public posting that is directed to Lisa Kerechanko. It is not a legal document and it is not worded objectively. However, it may be relevant or of interest as the Kerechankos, like the Kiralys, are seeking to take down website content.

130817: Legitimate Purposes for Gathering Kiraly Information

The link on the left goes to a list of Legitimate Purposes for the Gathering of Information related to members of the Kiraly Family and/or to any or all parties associated with Kiraly Cases past or future.

140222: Remarks related to DMCA

The link on the left goes to remarks related to DMCA and similar actions.

Voicemail for Hoge Fenton Transcripts of three voicemail messages that OldCoder left at Hoge Fenton. Hoge Fenton was exercised about these messages.

121220: Settlement remarks Remarks related to the 121220 settlement letter.
121128: Various Demands by OPC #970314 Controversial PDF. Tends to support the assertion that James Kiraly and Michael Bonetto are focused primarily on suppressing Robert Kiraly's books and websites. Michael was not pleased that this PDF was posted.
121128: HTML version of #970314 HTML version of the preceding PDF document.
121128: Letter to attorney about settlement 121128 OldCoder's reaction to Michael Bonetto's takedown attempt.
121204: Takedown of Takedown Michael Bonetto made two new demands that were interesting. He seemed to be demanding that his photo be removed from his own website. He also appeared to be attempting a takedown of his takedown.
121205: Possible Misrepresentation by Bonetto Michael Bonetto's justification for takedown of the takedown seemed to be flawed at best.
Undated: Initial DV150 Filings These are copies of the initial DV150 filings made in the Kiraly Cases.

130410: Declaration responding to Bonetto's 130405 Declaration

The PDF linked to the left is a Declaration that I filed with the Court in response to a Declaration filed on 130405 by Opposing Counsel Michael Bonetto. Topics include violence by my abuser, James Francis Kiraly. And statements by my Mother, Grace Violet Kmeta Kiraly.

130430: Declaration asserting settlement

Things got odd towards the end of the cases.

It seemed possible that my attorney John Perrott was colluding with Opposing Counsel Michael Bonetto. Actually, I was reasonably sure of it by this point. The link to the left explains a related Declaration that I filed on April 30, 2013.
