Notice of Appeal that Quotes Elie Mystal (Why not? He got the point.)

I had two cases in front of local district judge and GOP appointee David Cercone. They were both tossed when Byron Allen lost his case against Comcast. I'm appealing both of them. Unfortunately, no matter what Kanye says, my not friend President Trump has appointed all kinds of horrific judges to sit on the Third Circuit appeals courts. I know one of these judges, Peter Phipps, who has been written about in the past, openly sabotaged a former Fieldworks colleague of mine, He was promoted to the Third Circuit of Appeals. So, filing an appeal might be the same as throwing an anvil to a drowning man. But that's why they play em. Anyway, here's the notice of appeal for Elisabeth Wheeler and Pivot Physical Therapy.

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA


Philip Shropshire

Plaintiff

vs.  2:18-cv-00221-DSC


Elisabeth Wheeler, Pivot Physical Therapy
formerly known as
ALLEGHENY CHESAPEAKE

Defendants


NOTICE OF APPEAL
 (On several Judge Cercones Judgments/Orders)


Comcast’s position holds African American litigants, and anyone else who falls under the protections of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, to a nearly impossible standard. Racist corporate executives don’t make a habit of walking around saying, “I would give that guy a contract if he weren’t black.” Even when they do think and act like that, they rarely commit such thoughts to an e-mail. Comcast wants black people to be able to prove a level of racism most white people won’t admit to. Under Comcast’s logic, all of their executives could have met with Allen while wearing MAGA hats and asked him which “s___hole country” his ancestors came from—and then simply told Allen they weren’t going to carry his network because of “economic” reasons.

Thing's I've written online that I'm proud of and are still there.

Probably the best thing I've ever written online is this. I argued that nothing could kill piracy and Harlan, a great writer who I miss, said that his lawsuit had something to do with stopping piracy.  Harlan got a great settlement. Who was right? Go here to find out. Yes that answers the question. I'm very proud of my clever footnotes.

I also wrote reviews of comics and graphic novels. You can find those reviews here and here.

Here I wrote reviews of a Star Trek graphic novel by David Brin, Great Green Lantern drawn by the late Seth Fisher and Frank Miller's Dark Knight Strikes Again

I can also do made to order quick books. Here's one I wrote about the Kindle.

This is the PDF version of my review of Thomas Friedman's "The World is Flat". He's not liked by people in my Internet circles but I thought it was a pretty good book.
