In oral arguments,
my claims were
proved true, and
Kelly Angell's were
proved false.  She
was so angry I
almost expected
smoke to start
rising from the top
of her head.find
oral arguments
School attorneys
rely on the fact that
the California Court
of Appeal regularly
overturns jury
verdicts against
school districts,
preferring to
disregard the law
and the judgment of
jurors in favor of the
individuals who run
school districts.
Angell obtained a secret change from October 28 to October 25 in a successful effort to
change the outcome of the case--choosing the exact date when Larkins was unavailable, after
Larkins had agreed to her suggested date.
Kelly Angell first got
the order at right,
for October 28,
2004 then got it
changed because
Maura Larkins was
available. (Yes,
available.  Angell
wanted to get a
date on which she
knew Larkins was
unavailable.)  She
did this by  making
Larkins believe that
issue was resolved,
since Larkins
agreed to the
October 28th date.
Original order re deposition made at Stutz' request
Maura Larkins agreed to one of the dates
demanded--but then Stutz didn't want that
Superintendent Terry
Ryan said on
December 21, 2006
at the Grossmont
Union High School
Board Meeting when
he was arguing for
the district to keep
Plaintiff as counsel,
"If I'm going to pick a
race horse I want one
that wins all the time."
Kelly Angell denied that she received the above fax, and demanded that Larkins show proof of faxing.  
Larkins produces the fax transmission report below.
Stutz Documents
Elizabeth Schulman's lawyer Matthew C. Smith of Klinedinst engaged in similar
behavior to that of Stutz, suddenly claiming he had been planning for a long time to go
on a trip--he just never mentioned it.  He prevented Maura Larkins from taking her own
deposition at a manageable time, since it was impossible for her to attend two
depositions at once, and thereby getting her lawsuit thrown out.  Judge Styn  
pretended that Schulman and Smith weren't abusing the rules of discovery and the
rules of professional conduct.  Judge Styn appeared to want to get rid of an in pro per
plaintiff, even though he had to fly in the face of reason and fact to do so.
Letter to Jeffery Morris Oct. 27, 2004
Jeffery Morris and Kelly Angell wouldn't agree to a date for a
deposition, apparently for fear that it might actually be convenient.  
But, along with Bernard Rohrbacher and Michael Hersh of CTA, and
Deborah Garvin, they found another way to make a deposition
impossible: verbal abuse, preventing the deponent, who was
representing herself, to speak as her own counsel.
Stutz, Artiano, Shinoff & Holtz trick regarding
deposition date
After agreeing to deposition date and thus making ex parte hearing
unnecessary, Kelly Angell AKA Minnehan of Stutz went to an ex parte
hearing (after making Larkins believe it was canceled) and got Larkins'
deposition date changed to a date on which Angell knew that Larkins would
be unable to attend
Ironic quote from Kelly Angell during November 29, 2004 deposition of Peggie Myers:

Page 135 lines 4-6
"...I think it's obvious that you're using this deposition process to harass this witness.  This
witness has stated her unavailability, has given you a reason for it."
