ABOUT

Out Of Brooklyn Lyceum Events



-- As we seek to provide programming
for when the Brooklyn Lyceum (or any interim proxy) returns,
we need to see a LOT
of music, theatre, dance, comedy, etc.

-- To that end, we are accepting invitations
to see such work
to investigate if that work (or that group)
would be a good fit for the Lyceum (or any interim proxy)
.

-- In addition, we are also open to invitations
to see work for an actual written review
(whether or not there is any intent to present at the Lyceum).

We will post the review online, send it to email and social media, where appropriate.

Apply HERE.

-- If that interests you or your group, pursue that at OOBLE.ORG

PROGRAM


--Between now and the time the LYCEUM DUE PROCESS TRAIN gets into the station, we are seeking people to help raise awareness.
--Those who help raise awareness can get curatorial votes they can exercise to influence progaramming at the Brooklyn Lyceum or at any interim proxy location.
--You get votes by reviewing a few lines/dates in a few documents and sending us affidavits stating what you see (no conclusions of law necessary).
--You also get votes by appearing at crucial moments/hearings or by distributing fliers.
--Those votes can be exercised, proxied, transferred ore returned (back to the Lyceum in exchange for Lyceum staff hours for a cause on an expanding list of causes).

--If that is too much work, just cast a few votes about what you think about some simple STUPIDS a few judges have accomplished.

re-programming a DUE PROCESS DEPRIVED Brooklyn theater as soon as the legal swamp settles.
Once the Lyceum gets the court:
  • to do what Judge Donald Scott Kurtz should have done:
    (dismiss case as abandoned, based on record before the court), or,
  • to do what the court must now do:
    (unwind every decision in the case for failure to serve any papers on Lyceum attorney)
    given what Judges Reinaldo E. Rivera, John M. Leventhal, Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix and Valerie Brathwaite Nelson did do
    (find 17 > 26 and alter the docket to insert appearance by Lyceum attorney in order to avoid dismissal as abandoned)
the Brookyn Lyceum will be back & needs to hit the swamp running.
To that end ...
--we are plotting programming now
so that we can implement that programming in the interim, either at the Brooklyn Lyceum or proxy sites.

--participate in programming the Lyceum
score curatorial votes by brain, body, past effort or wallet.
    Simple things to do to help the Lyceum due process cause:
  • --Take poll and tell us what you think of a couple of judges and their simple to interpret actions.
  • --Note presence of a document Plaintiff withheld from the court for 3 years.*
  • --Note sworn statement by Plaintiff counsel about that document.*
  • --Note lack of a particular document from the early (and short) record of the case.*
  • --Note date of notice of a motion.
  • --Note date that notice instructs all to appear.
  • --Note datetime stamp of a document (motion)(A).
  • --Note datetime stamp of a document (decision)(B)..
  • --Note A comes before B.
  • --Note Appellate decision that finds A comes AFTER B.
  • --Make appearance at hearing (watched court more likely to follow the rules).
  • --Contribute a case citation to the cause (if you have legal mojo in your bones).
  • --Buy swag for future curatorial voting rights.
  • --Contribute $$ to the cause for future curatorial voting rights.
*= and sign affidavit about what a 5th grader should see.
Individual affidavits about any of the above gets you 10 votes.
More complicated ones get you 20 votes.

When the Brooklyn Lyceum gets done
undoing a non-trivial set of procedural due process violations ...


There ... WILL ... BE ... BETTER ... COFFEE ...
on the Brooklyn Lyceum block.
till then
... Out & About & On The Road w/an answer:
... Inexorable Espresso Evolution ...
Flavor, not labor, from our espresso cellar!
-- 15 years of a coffee shop/cafe
and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy taught us that
there is another, more ecological, way.

-- When the Brooklyn Lycem Due Process dust settles,
we may be taking on, or taking out,
Starbucks with our own Espresso cellar.

--Till then we are pulling espress shots the SwaSlu way, on the road again!

We make it a point not to be a roaster
and will be presenting multitudes of flavors of roasters
from, well, everywhere at interim locations, events, markets and fairs.

SUMMARY: Procedural Due Process MUST/WILL (eventually) triumph over Developer profits
(judicial "thumb on the scale" (Donald Scott Kurtz) or not).
Overturning Brooklyn Lyceum Foreclosure case is simple (and inevitable).
no more judicial places to run to, baby, no more judicial places to hide*. (*=credits to law of unintended consequences and Martha and the Vandellas)
The Brooklyn Lyceum
had the Foreclosure Plaintiff
DEAD TO RIGHTS (eight years ago)

as case was statutorily abandoned
(more than 365 days from last date for defendant to answer to date of 1st motion)

based solely on the Plaintiff provided record that includes ... Plaintiff implying in motion papers (Oct 2009)
--attached to but not referenced by that Notice of Motion and
--swearing in documents sent to judge (but not filed with court) two years later (Nov 2011)
--and admitted to in papers filed (Oct 2012) in response to
--motion to dismiss complaint as abandoned (Oct 2012)
--and admitted to in oral argument (Oct 2012) the court denies occurred
--but that plaintiff admitted occurred in subsequent papers (Dec 2012)

that Defendants had not appeared or responded in any fashion prior to that initial Motion.
Judge Donald Scott Kurtz
BROKE THE LAW

to let the Plaintiff
continue statutorily abandoned case.

especially given that the Kurtz
used evidence the Plaintiff's
since suspended from the practice of law attorney
withheld in the original motion (Oct 2009)
(but provided to the court
when the motion was challenged (Oct 2012)).

It should be noted
that the years late evidence,
(proof of the Defendants having hired an attorney
who both negotiated an extension of time to answer (April 2008)
& served answers for the Defendants (??? 2009) on the now suspended attorney)

should have caused the judge who has been quoted as saying
“When a case is before me, I try to give it my full attention,” -and-
“Some judges would have just read the papers and signed them,”

to look to see if proper procedure was followed ...
i.e. was an appearing attorney ever served the Notice of Motion &
was that Notice of Motion and all subsequent notices of motions facially sufficient?
(one motion served notice to appear a decade in the past).
Judge Reinaldo Rivera
AIDED AND ABBETED Kurtz by:
--failing to address jurisdictional issues raised at oral argument
when Judge Reinaldo Rivera said
"we will get to the bottom of it"
& "the 2nd department has an excellent reputation"
-- making a decision that implicitly went outside the record to support a decision that explicitly went outside the record.
(thereby altering lower docket to insert a Defendant appearance when there was not one on the record.)
-- making up a fact (Oct. 17 comes after Oct. 26) to make it seem as if The Brooklyn Lyceum moved too late when there is never any "too late" date to vacate a decision for lack of jurisdiction (no dispute before the court).
-- using three prongs of a cited case to hurt the Brooklyn Lyceum and failing to address the one remaining prong (did the Plaintiff fail to serve the oredr in the timeframe specified by the court in the order) which was the thrust of the Brooklyn Lyceum defense to a contempt finding.
-- altering appellate record to make Defendant allege "intrinsic" fraud when Brooklyn Lyceum appellate papers clearly allege "extrinsic" fraud ... fraud which induces the court to act absent authority.
Judge Janet DiFiore
AIDED AND ABBETED both Kurtz and Rivera by:

-- failing to correct lower appellate court failure to address jurisictionalarguments raised at oral argument &
-- failing to address jurisdictional arguments raised in response to sua sponte motion by the court.
-- dismissing an appeal PRIOR to addressing jurisdictional arguments.
"JUST US" slips into "JUSTICE"?

Ruling threw Plaintiff
into retroactive jurisdictional traps:

-- Plaintiff's admitted failure to serve the Lyceum/Richmond attorney ANY papers.
-- Lower court granting relief not requested in notice of motion.
-- Lower court granting relief not available under statute cited in Notice of Motion.
-- Lower Court granting relief in motion where the referenced supporting documents are not attached/do not exist.
-- Lower Court granting relief in motion noticing parties to appear a DECADE IN THE PAST.
-- Lower Court premising a decision on TWO non-existent sworn statements.
CALLS TO ACTION:
Take POLL on judicial actions
VOTE
on cases for next papers,
SIGN
Affidavit about some 5th grader level logic,
APPEAR
when the covid crisis is done,
CONTRIBUTE
(case citation and opinions)
Then help program the Brooklyn Lyceum 2.0!
Pass judgment on Judges not smarter than a 5th grader!!
If a judge:
--can't figure out which is greater of two numbers or
--can't see that the Plaintiff noticed parties to appear a decade in the past or
--premises decisions on non-existent documents, i

how can you trust those judges with things that are complicated?
Take a look at some crystal clear STUPIDS and tell us what you think of a judge who would do these types of STUPIDS.
Crowd-Source legal citations
If you have a legal frame of mind, take a look at the dozen (and growing) brain-dead simple issues that do not allow for any judicial discretion.
We are seeking 100 citations (in any jurisdiction) to support each of the premises that will set the Brooklyn Lyceum free.
If you are first to subit an on point case (even if it contradicts our position), you will earn, if you leave your email address, one Brooklyn Lyceum Curatorial vote.
SIGN Affidavit!
You don't have to be a judge to see when a judge does a STUPID.
Review a couple of dates or a couple of lines in some documents or note the absense of a document from a short record and sign an affidavit that you swear to. Just the facts, no conclusions necessary.
Send us the affidavit(s) and, if they are true to form and content, you will earn some Lyceum street cred via curatorial voting rights you can use, transfer or exchange (ten (10) votes for each accepted affidavit and one (1) vote for each use of the affidavit in court papers).
Appear!, Spread the Word!
In addition to an affidavit, we believe that a watched judiciary tends to do its job more than an unwatched one.
To that end, if you appear at specified junctures, just as an observer, you will get twenty (20) votes.
Lastly, we may need to have fliers distributed at places out and about.
To that end, for each hour of flier distribution, you will get ten (10) votes.
COMING SOON
Keep this from happening.
The Lyceum was floored when Appellate Judge Reinaldo Rivera made up a fact (Oct. 17 is after Oct. 26) after stating at the Lyceum Oral Argument on Sep. 26, 2018, that the 2nd dept. would "get to the bottom" of things because "the 2nd dept. has an excellent reputation".
To stop this madness, we endeavor to review all (2018-2020) Appellate Oral Arguments and review papers and decisions to document such malfeasances and outright lies by the Appellate Court.
PASS JUDGMENT ON JUDGES WHO:
Ignore Jurisdictional challenges,
Grant motions on no notice,
Grant relief not requested,
Find Oct. 17 is AFTER Oct. 26 &
Retroactively alter docket for lender.
refuse to provide court reporter
commit perjury to appellate division

  • #1A - NOTICE TO APPEAR IN THE PAST : KURTZ


    The Plaintiff served a Notice of Motion on March 17, 2011 for all to appear a DECADE IN THE PAST, on April 18, 2001.


    Review a two page Plaintiff: NOTICE OF MOTION TO APPEAR A DECADE IN THE PAST.

    Review a two page Proof of Service : swearing notice of motion was served 10 years after hearing motion.

    An Affidavit about these STUPIDs we hope you will sign: Affidavit swears you saw a notice dated April 17, 2011 to appear on April 18, 2001, and, that you saw that service was sworn to have been done a decade after the noticed hearing..


    The inescapable result of the Judge Donald Scott Kurtz failure to do basic date checks reviewing the facially and jurisdictionally bad NOTICE OF MOTION and proof of jurisdictionally tardy service of the NOTICE OF MOTION is that the sale of the Brooklyn Lyceum is void, right from the start, or ab initio.

    Note: the date of the Notice of Motion, from the second page (March 17, 2011) or the vertical date-time stamp on 1st page (2011 MAR 17 AM 11:24) and the handwritten MOTION SUPPORT date on the lower part of the first page (3-17-11).

    Note: the date all were noticed to appear (lines 4-6 of page #1) : "the undersigned will move this court .... on the 18th day of April, 2001 at 9:30 a.m. ...".

  • #2A - APPELLATE COURT JUDGE FINDS 19 > 26: REINALDO RIVERA


    In order to rule against the Brooklyn Lyceum, Judge Reinaldo Rivera found that the Lyceum must lose because a cross-motion to have the case declared abandoned by Plaintiff inaction came after the entry of the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale.

    The DECISION IS STUPID because it is makes a case the court was REQUIRED, by statute, to dismiss as abandoned by Plaintiff inaction
    can become unabandoned by further Plaintiff action combined with the Court's failure to follow the statute.
    The DECISION IS FLAT OUT WRONG on the simple, 5th grader math comparison of two dates.
    The Cross-Motion (October 19, 2012) came BEFORE, not AFTER the entry of the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale (October 26, 2012).


    Review a line in a short Appellate Decision(Page 3 last Para, lines 2-3#): "The cross motion was untimely since it was made after entry of the judgment of foreclosure and sale "
    Review Motion Clerk date on the Cross-Motion (October 19, 2012) :
    Motion Support hand-written date: 10/19/12 AND adjacent datetime stamp of October 22, 2012

Out Of Brooklyn Lyceum Events

While we prep for the inevitable return of the Brooklyn Lyceum, the need, nee urge, to see culture in the wild still burns.

If you want to throw us a couple of tickets to an event, we will endeavor to write a review and publish it online at ooble.org, and, if it is a generally positive review, it might get sent out to some social networks and maybe email.

Generally interested in things from Washington DC, to Maine.

Who knows, if we like it you may hear from us when the Brooklyn Lyceum returns.

WORSE THAN KOBAYASHI MARU -

Captain Kirk would have a tough time with Brooklyn Courts

Star Trek's Captain Kirk re-programmed a Star Fleet Academy simulation that was designed to have the Star Fleet candidate either lose his ship, himself and all his crew in battle or lose a freighter (the Kobayashi Maru) in the Neutral Zone.

That was a situation no one could win, a Catch-22. In Brooklyn Courts we have a worse situation, judges re-programming (altering) the docket to avoid what the record and the abandonment statute, CPLR 3215(c) required, dismissal of the case as abandoned.

The Brooklyn Lyceum, aka Public Bath #7 (by Raymond Francis Almirall), a community fixture for 20 years as a theater / cafe / gym / batting cage, needs your help, a couple of affidavits, and, if it works with your schedule, an appearance here and there to let the courts know someone is watching.

The courts (lower and appellate), in an ill advised attempt to short circuit due process for the Brooklyn Lyceum (made up multiple dispositive facts, selectively quoted caselaw, altered the docket for the benefit of the Plaintiff, ignored attorney perjury, ...), created a winnable battle for the Brooklyn Lyceum in that, under the altered record:

  • Plaintiff failed to serve initial Notice of Motion (or any papers whatsoever) on Lyceum Attorney.
  • Plaintiff Notice of Motion cites, as the required document, an affidavit that does not exist.
  • Plaintiff Notice of Motion dated October 13, 2009 cites non-existent, and impossible, October 26, 2009 Affidavit.
  • Plaintiff Notice of Motion asks for relief (Judgment of Foreclosure and Order of Reference) under a statute that does not allow for Judgment of Foreclosure or Order of Reference.
  • Decision by Judge Donald Scott Kurtz is premised on two affidavits that do not exist, one cited to by the Plaintiff in the motions papers, and, one out of whole judicial cloth.
  • Same Decision grants relief not requested in Motion (Judgment of Default)  and relief not available under the statute  presented as the basis for the Motion (Order of Reference).
  • Another Notice of Motion, to foreclose on the Lyceum, notices everyone on March 18, 2011, to attend a hearing on April 17, 2001, A DECADE IN THE PAST!!

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  • Read, and mentally process, all the tabs.  We know it will take some effort, but the payoff is worth it. If you already believe us and want to dig right in, read and become one with the 4 RED tabs.
  • Sign & send a couple of affidavits regarding what you have processed regarding the bullet points above.
  • If it works with your schedule, show up at a hearing on occasional basis.
  • Or, if direct participation is not your bag, buy things from  brooklynlycem.com/viewart or roxysteeparlour.com .
  • Or,  if you just want to help in the least involvement way possible, give $$ to the cause (https://brooklynlyceum.com/viewart/5) that may entail a new attorney and two projects to help keep this from happening to other people.

THE PAYOFF: Convert your affidavits and our use of your affidavits or your appearance at some hearings or your contributions into curatorial voting rights when the Brooklyn Lyceum rises from the ashes.  Help program a venue that has seen the likes of Fiona Apple, Amanda Palmer, Vernon Reid, Yo La Tengo, Marc Ribot, Jose Gonzalez, and scores of others.
