(for those who don't know, I make this joke because that was part
of Marc Randazza's Defense in the WIPO Case with the
Glen Beck Domain Name )
Marc Randazza spoke with one of my Anti-Corruption Blogger's who blogs on my whistle blower blogs. This was on December 10th, 2011. Keep in mind time was critical at this point in getting a notice of appeal filed or a Motion for a New Trial.
After this first and ONLY Phone Call with Marc Randazza, I sent Marc Randazza lot's of documents, at his request, and last I heard he would read them to see if my argument was preserved enough to want to represent me and to see if he had a conflict of interest with the Media Bloggers Association.
Meanwhile, with Time Running out, I was weighing out all options. Another Attorney had contacted me on Dec. 6th, 2011 and said he wanted to represent me, but was waiting for clearance from his firm as this was completely Pro Bono and there was a process to go through. So I was not sure if he would represent me for sure or not. Therefore I was still looking at other Attorney Options, and trying to see if it was even best to file for an appeal, for I was going to do it Pro Se if no Attorney was on board. And wanted as many Expert as Opinions as I could, for this case matters to so many Whistle Blowers, Anti-Corruption Bloggers and Citizen Journalists.
So after the December 10th, 2011 Phone Call and Tons of Documents sent, there was not another word from Marc Randazza until the 14th of December at exactly 5:06 PM when Marc Randazza Emailed me this, "
TO: Crystal L. Cox
December 14, 2011 5:06 PM
I have reviewed the file, and I have pondered the issues, and I have decided that I will take your case. We need to talk about some of the issues of representation before finalizing it. But, I am game.
When can you talk? "
How Ironic was that, as the Other Attorney had Emailed me at Exactly 5:00 PM regarding his hearing that Marc Randazza represented me, and wanted to know if he should call off the Pro Bono Process.
It seems that he had been told by others in the First Amendment Bar that Marc Randazza represented me, and so he called Marc Randazza up and flat out asked him. It seems that Marc Randazza indeed claimed to be representing me, and it seemed that Marc Randazza had even contacted the Plaintiff to see if a deal could be worked out. Marc Randazza posed as my Attorney, I guess he must have told the Plaintiff he was my Attorney, and thereby got inside information regarding me and the case. At that time I was Pro Se. So surely this is unethical if not illegal.
It is my case, I have put all my time, money, energy into it for over a year. And Marc Randazza comes along and says he is my attorney to the Plaintiff, they believe it, and I am thrown in the back seat of my own case with no voice, no rights, and complete disrespect.
So of course acting as my Attorney he would violate my rights and negotiate without talking to me right? So just what was the terms of this negotiation on my alleged, behalf ? And if he did represent me in his own mind, then how is it ethical to go to the other side with my strategy at that time?
And how is it ethical to later, in a revenge over a domain name I refused to turn over to his demands, he went to the Plaintiff in this amazingly important First Amendment Case, and Side with them to Set me up for Extortion ?
Did this secret negotiation giving away inside information and strategy, acting as my attorney, have anything to do with the Motion for a New Trial Process? What did Marc Randazza discuss with the Plaintiff's Camp? Is all this Legal? If so it is Certainly NOT ETHICAL.
Obviously the Reviewing and Pondering was well past, and Marc Randazza was acting as my Attorney. He emailed me he would take the case and told another Attorney he represented me, or so it would seem. Even though he made it clear to the other attorney that he had already been spending time and effort on this case. ( Lawyer lingo for Billable Hours)
So another words, Marc Randazza was acting as my attorney well before the 5:06 Email of Dec. 14th 2011, in which Marc Randazza finally let me, the client, know that he would take my case, though he had already told many he represented me, and had been already negotiating as my attorney.
It was recommended that I contact Marc and Let Him know that he does not represent me, to put a stop to this. So My Response to the Above Email was The Following, and it was sent to Both Attorneys.

I filed tons of document, not the way you would of but they are in the public record, and also this trial, to me as it stands will be used to assist me in filing a Federal RICO Lawsuit and a Whistleblower Lawsuit, as I got them to perjury themself. And my goal is justice for all, and though an attorney may have got me out of this early, thing is there would have been someone else to sue me, or another to get sued to bring about the change in bloggers rights that this will bring.
I did NOT mess up, and its important to me to be respected as the strong, intelligent, woman that I am, as my intention is really of the light, is good and ya sometimes I seem over the top but I am all heart on this, and my victims I will fight to the death for.
That's just who and what I am. You, Marc do not seem to respect me, or treat me as if I am worthy, equal to you, and it feels like you want your client, or possibly women in general to take a back seat to you and that's not me. And to confirm all this for me as I prayed for a sign, I heard thru several channels that you were saying you represented me, but did not give me the decency or respect to tell me or even keep me in the loop.
You said you may have a conflict and would let me know, you did not let me know and then seemed to tell others your were representing me, and you wanted money I don't have.
To me, after working 7 years at this, facing judges set me up, cops set me up, attorneys screw me over, death threats, being drugged, and extreme duress and persecution over all this for so long, well, you telling others you represent me BEFORE telling me, well that is on the wrong side of the moral and ethical compass to me. And is opposite of the equal rights, women's rights, lesbian rights, bloggers rights, citizen journalists rights, victims rights that I fight for.
As Eug ene represents what I fight for, and no disrespect marc just a tip for your future, Eug ene emailed me here and there and let me know what was going on, he listened to me, respected me and never once told me I messed up or EVER assumed anything about me. Nor did he speak of my journalistic standards as an issue, as you did. He never hesitated in wanted to represent me, it was simply a matter of if he could. He is Kind to me, smart and treats me with dignity and respect, you do not. Sorry that Simple.
So Just wanted you to know a bit why, and confirm, Marc Randazza does NOT represent me in ANY way. Eug ene Vo lok h represents me, and if he can't then so be it, I will leave that in the hands of the Great Spirit. I will not lose my voice, my dignity, and respect in this. I know my Truth though many others are trashing me, I know my truth.
and he copied the other Attorney,
To: Crystal L. Cox
"Ok, thank you for your email. I wish you the absolute best of luck in this matter. "
I want to address a few things:
First and foremost, if you feel that I did not treat you respectfully, I humbly apologize. I do not wish to leave that un-discussed. People like you are important for the future of citizen journalism, and I wish to see you succeed.
I also want to correct a misperception here. I did not tell anyone that I represented you, for certain. I did tell the opposing counsel that I thought a deal might be brokered - but that I wanted to speak to him first (to test his waters with respect to a possible mutually agreeable resolution).
Finally, I want to make it clear that our discussion about money was in terms of "costs." I thought that I made it clear that my bills, my fees (my income) would be waived. All that I was asking you about being able to pay was out of pocket reimbursement of expenses.
Despite the contents of this email, I wish to let you know that I am sill willing to lend a hand in any way - even in the background.
Response From Crystal Cox Blogger
Thank You Marc I appreciate it, thing is again, talking to the Devil to cut a deal without my permission is again disrespective. I consciously, intelligently chose not to deal, they sent a, what they call settlement communication a couple weeks before the trial, asking me to blame somebody they dont like, wanting 20 of my sites, and wanted me to pay 5000 for ever time i discuss them, even after i was granted a summary judgment to talk about them, and this is apparently not extortion... so i chose no deal... they did not prove that post not true, they tricked me, they lied, and i will not deal with them unless its a very good deal, they have put me through hell and now are persecuting me and setting me up for a crime..
one of my clients called this morning and said they got a call with somebody asking, so this means they have my bank account and are investigating me, yet for some reason not investigating the criminals.. so a deal would have to be very good.. and I would want in on it..
anyway thanks again for the apology.. peace and love to you"
Fast Forward to Monday January 16th, 2012, 2:30 PM. I thought I had left things on decent terms. A month had passed and having been evicted and a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgment, I was looking for work, so I emailed this to Marc Randazza.
"Hi Marc, hope this email finds you doing well. When I thought we may work together
i bought http://www.marcrandazza.com/ - to control the search, and pr on my case,
if you represented me.. I manage it now, as ownership is well.. a different story now
due to my current judgement..
I am confident with the case, and leaving it to the highest and best good..
I do however need to make money, so I am asking you if you or anyone you know could
use a very good search engine reputation manager. Not sure if you ever researched that
for your online presence.. not sure of what you think of David Aman excusing me of extortion,
thing is search management is something tons of people due and for thousands a month per search term..
and so when he sent a cease and desist and filed a lawsuit, i offered it as a way to settle and not
spend a year fighting, he turned it down, then a year later accused me of a crime.. its simply not
how it happened..
Anyway if you know anyone needing a very good search engine reputation manager please let me know.."
That is the email that he claims I extorted him. A domain name I bought Dec. 10th 2011, that I had every legal right to own. I offered a legitimate service that thousands offer. And I had not written about Marc Randazza in any way what so ever at that time.
And though many love to speculate, what I meant by ownership is a different story, is that the Plaintiff was in the process of paperwork to take Domain Names that I owned or had owned, and that was one of them, so ya ownership is a different story as I thought the Plaintiff would take the Domain Name, and they still seem to be in the process of trying to do so. As they Deem the Domain Names and Asset, though at this point in time they certainly seem to be a Liability to an owner.
I never extorted anyone nor was there a Criminal Complaint Filed regarding extortion. What Follows is Extortion and threats from Marc Randazza if I don't turn over the name, and well, he followed through with his threat, and now has other Lawyers, Bloggers, the New York Times, Forbes and more posting information that deliberately puts me in False Light and flat out lies. Marc Randazza is flat out lying about me and committing a Hate Crime in inciting a riot against me based on fraudulent information and Flat Out Lies.
Marc Randazza's Response to the Above Email
"TO: Crystal L. Cox

You have no right to register a domain name that corresponds to my real name. Please hand that domain name over to me, and please do not presume to think it is okay to register other people's names as domain names.
Marc John Randazza*
Randazza Legal Group"
So was that as an attorney, saying I have no legal right to register a domain name that corresponds to his real name or was that just his opinion? Wait now, before you answer, remember the Glen Beck Domain Name accusing him of rape and murder that Marc Randazza defended and the WIPO case that Marc Randazza won over that, and remember the Crystal Cox, Proskauer Rose Lawyers and how I won the right to have those Domain Names, and I was Pro Se in that Case.
Marc Randazza Says, Please hand that domain name over to me, and please do not presume to think it is okay to register other people's names as domain names. REALLY ?? wow.. is that all you got... after defending others to own VERY sick names accusing someone of rape and murder right in the domain name. Ahhh Marc, ya big baby, it was just a Parody, a Satire...
Ok SO My Response Was
"Monday, January 16, 2012 3:23 PM
"Really? Well Marc, Look at my WIPO case with Proskauer Rose, WIPO sure seems to think its Ok. I thought it was perfectly legal to do so. I have registered others name in fair competition and real estate for years. I registered others names to promote them, some to expose them, and others as investments in the future. Many smart internet marketers register others names, it is not illegal Marc. Sorry I upset you, never mind. I was simply looking for people to promote as I need a job. Guess you don't need such a service, all you had to do was say no thank you. I am sure that you get tons of spam emails daily asking you to hire them, we all do. You could have just ignored it."
Marc Randazza sure did get into a huff over it.. Talk about Double Standards. He knows, as an Attorney in this field of expertise, that he was flat out lying about my right to own that Domain Name.
I went on to say ...
"It is certainly not against the law to register the domain name of others. I was Pro Se with my Proskauer Rose case and I won, having many of their attorney names as a dotcom. Real free to file with WIPO, and be sure and name me in that case as well as the current registered name, as I proudly and smartly registered the domain name. We are happy to go to WIPO over it.
there are others but here is the chairman of Proskauer Rose, WIPO Case

I would get about it. That's what I do, I never did anything negative against you. And you

Subject: RE: from Crystal L. Cox
Perhaps you just don't understand how deeply offensive it is to me that you would register that without even telling me, let alone asking me. You had no right to do that.
Do you think that just by being my potential client, or even my actual client that it somehow created a right for you to register my name to "protect the story?" Don't you think that I have a) the ability to do that myself, and b) the right to decide whether or not you would use my name for your own exclusive use -- to talk about YOUR story? Even if you thought that this was okay, which seems strange to me, why on earth would you think that you continue to have any justification for having that domain?
Asking me for a job, or a recommendation? That doesn't bother me in the least. In fact, if you had displayed any ethics, I'd be game to do so.
But, why on earth would you think that it is reasonable to tell someone that a) you registered THEIR name for YOUR own purposes, and THEN b) ask for a job? It is (a) that makes an enemy of me. (b) is completely reasonable.
I'm sure you paid a few bucks for the domain. I'd be pleased to reimburse you what it cost you. But, I do not find it to be acceptable that someone else has registered my name for any purpose. I certainly do not agree with your justification for doing it in the first place. Nevertheless, any justification you MIGHT have had dissolved when it became certain that I was not going to represent you, I have no connection to this case at all, and thus I can't possibly see any reason for you to have any control over that domain whatsoever -- unless the purpose is to simply make an enemy of me. ""
Ok so Marc Randazza has no problem of me asking for a job, yet now in the Media is calling it Extortion, as part of the PopeHat.com Attorney Lynch Mob. Then Marc goes on to say, well if you did have "any justification" then it "dissolved" when it became certain that I was not going to represent you". Did you mean when I made it clear to YOU that you WOULD not Represent Me, because you Treated Me Badly and Disrespected Me? Oh I see, well if that's your legal case in this dispute, I bought the Name on December 10th, 2011, the first day we talked and I certainly was not "certain" at that time. So where is the Extortion you Lying Asshole?
Crystal Cox Responded to the Above Email with This
"Thanks for your input, confirms my choice regarding you. Fine if you want me as an enemy, so be it.
As far as my ethics, you have no clue who I am, I know my Truth. And I Trust you know yours.
There is nothing wrong with registering names, to further my cause, or protect my story in search. Or registering domain names to write news, events, and whistle blower tips on that person. It is a way to get stories in the top of the search, it is wise to have one's own name, you call me an enemy here so it is.
I will take no future job from you, I want no money from you. i will use the name to post current and archived internet stories about you, as I please, not defamation, simply word for word as I find them on the sites of others.
I have the right to repost articles of others and have received emails from many asking why I did not choose you to represent me, I had not responded. If you want your domain name, you will have to file a WIPO complaint, and or sue me for registering it and sue the guy I sold it to.
You did not treat me well, for you believed what others said and did not even know that the story i was writing on was and is very true, that guy really did those things and I was just getting the story to the top of the search engines.
You asked for all my documents, said you would get back to me, and then told others you represented me. To me you are a bully, not ethical, as you said in your call you were not sure of me because of what was being said, thing is I am good at search management for good guys because of years of exposing, investigating, deep search on the "bad guys".
I turn up amazing discovering, and find out who is connected from monitoring my posts and the search engine placement has ex employees, ex wives and husbands, and tons of people sending me tips on that person, because i am so good at getting on top of search.
I gave voice to victims and the search placement happened by accident. After 5 years of it, i decided to offer it as a service, i have not got any jobs from it thus far, have not really tried heavily as I was employed as an investigative blogger by a big company out of new york to investigate connections
of people, which i am very good at deep online research and turning up tips.
And yes I have a "right" to register what I want, if you want that to NOT be a right you should have first bought the name years ago and secondly lobby the laws, so that the register cannot sell people's names to those who are not named that person. The registrar lets people register what they want, and perhaps those laws should change. However for me it is a tool to get in search and to uncover stories, post stories and make connections between things that person is or has ever been involved in.
As far as the domain name, It is not for sale at any price, for any reason. I currently don't own it and simply manage the name. You say in your email that your capable to registering the name?? why didn't you then? Be offended if you like, you offended me at our first call. Your an arrogant pompous ass, and so thanks for letting me know that you are an enemy. So be it. I have faith that is meant to be, so let the WAR begin.. your Move..
I have every justification for owning that name, for one obviously i am smarter then you.
Slam me, say no ethics, and the rest of what you have said about me, well your FLAT WRONG about me, so be it, nothing I can do. You want an enemy of me, then fine, you have made that call. Let the skeletons in your closet start to rattle, hope your squeaky clean.
I have registered every name of the companies i have worked for in order to protect them in search, its just common sense Marc Randazza.
And you have NO connection to me in this case? Really, well rumor has it that you told people you represented me, and then later said other things about me, so I am not sure that is the whole truth and nothing but, at any rate I will not email you again... you have drawn your line in the sand.. do as you will I trust its meant to be..

Flash Forward to March 7th 2012, this was the Day that Tonkon Torp Attorney David Aman, for the Plaintiff in attempting to execute on a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement Signed a Subpoena to Marc Randazza. On March 8th as my own Attorney, in my Pro Se Capacity I get an Email with a Copy of the Marc Randazza Deposition Subpoena.
After this, the Use of MarcRandazza.com took a Turn.
Ok so on March 10th, 2012 I am pissed off and want to Expose Marc Randazza before his deposition to "Frame ME", so I buy FuckMarcRandazza.com - MarcRandazzaSucks.com ... and I publicize these names best I can, he knows they went up, I saw him on my Statcounter. Ok so then on March 12th I buy more domain names to keep building blogs on, such as MarcJRandazza.com and Marc John Randazza .com ..

(If it Gone Let Me Know, I have a PDF I can email you.)
Anyway, so then I thought to myself, what a Hypocrite, defending Rush Limbaugh and talking like this about his own knocked up wife. And there was her name in that post, in that way, so I took a look and there it was, Domain Name Available, so I bought it and I bought the other one he is so upset about which I have never mentioned or publicized in ANY way, nor will I. It was bought to prove that Marc Randazza is not who he claims to be, OH in my OPINION.
As most of you know by now, I have bought the dot com of countless names of individuals over the years for various reasons. So why subpoena ONLY ONE of them in an asset probe? See, what really happened is Marc Randazza was pissed, he wanted an easy way to steal the domain name instead of going through legal channels and filing a WIPO Complaint to go through a process and let a panel decide who has a legal righ to the Domain Name.
So Marc Randazza seemed to have cut a deal with the Plaintiff, the very one he was going to represent me against. And so Marc Randazza was flying to Portland to give a Deposition regarding my assets. I was still pro see in the execution of a $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement and all of the sudden the center of the entire case was now surrounding one $10 Domain Name that I purchased AFTER the $2.5 Million Dollar Judgement was Entered.
So I emailed this document to Marc Randazza, as I am Pro Se, he emailed right back and said I do not open attachments from this email. So I sent it again in the body of the email. As my own attorney I have a right to ask these question..
As of this time, it seems he has not followed through with the Deposition. I will let you know if he does. If Not, then I will ask those questions, after I file my Lawsuit against them. This will be awhile as I am working on Criminal Complaints against Judge Marco Hernandez and Tonkon Torp, as well as Complaints to the Attorney General, and the Oregon Judicial Qualification Committee. As well as a Federal Hate Crime Filing.
