As many readers of this blog, the Minneapolis Mirror and Jordan Hawkman blogs know, John Hoff and Megan Goodmundson have harrassed L3SO Pete Rickmyer in person as well on John's blog, The Adventures of Johnny Northside. John is on a first name basis with Rickmeyer's supervisor William McDonald, who is also named in the suit.
L3SO's are easy targets for John because, if someone speaks up against John by saying he is being unfair with his public assault against L3SO's, they know that it would open them up to the public wrath of Johnny Northside and his threats to First Amendment Retaliate.
John has submitted a document to a Judge in a separate child custody case that claimed Rickmyer was stalking him and posed a threat to John and his son. Nice try. This is the same John Hoff who was smug enough to pose with him waving at the camera for a picture that was taken in FRONT of Pete Rickmyer's house! Keep in mind folks, John Hoff has made a career out of doing shady things and has bent the laws just far enough to not technically break them and then has the nerve to turn around and accuse other people of the very same actions. Those pictures and documents will be posted soon.
This new suit was filed by attorney, Jill Clark. I have never had the pleasure of meeting or speaking with Miss Clark but, I will say that in my opinion she is an incredible attorney and I commend her for taking on cases that most attorney's have seen as either too small or not winnable.
For those who may not know, Jill Clark is the same attorney who successfully represented Jerry Moore in the high profile case of Moore V. Hoff. Thr jury in that case ruled against Hoff and ordered him to pay damages in the amount of $60,000. That judgement has since been docketed and Hoff will have that judgement following him around for life. Now Hoff being named in this case means he is being accused of contributing to the wrongful inprisonment of an individual. I say to the Johnny Northside supporters...How about that? On top of all the other slimy things he has done, now he actually takes a role in having someone thrown in jail, un-provoked! In fact, I think I will publish the court document where John cried to the judge about Rickmyer. Stay tuned for that!
The new lawsuit is a "Habeas Corpus" case which is defined below:
Habeas CorpusThis was copied from the Minnesota Courts case website off of the Register of Actions for case no. Case No. 27-CV-11-11012.
Lat. "you have the body" Prisoners often seek release by filing a petition for a writ of habeas corpus. A writ of habeas corpus is a judicial mandate to a prison official ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not he should be released from custody. A habeas corpus petition is a petition filed with a court by a person who objects to his own or another's detention or imprisonment. The petition must show that the court ordering the detention or imprisonment made a legal or factual error. Habeas corpus petitions are usually filed by persons serving prison sentences.
