Defense Bar Floods the US Supreme Court With Amicus Briefs in RICO Case

In a RICO case which will have profound impact on the national workers' compensation system, the defense bar has inundated the US Supreme Court with applications to submit amicus briefs. Pending before the US Supreme Court is a petition for a writ of certiorari to review a decision where: the employer, insurance company and their experts were found to have conducted themselves in violation of the RICO Act.

The  US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit denied rehearing on January 5, 2009 and a Petition for a writ of certiorari was filed on May 6, 2009.  On May 26, 2009 US SUpreme entered an Order extending time to file a response to petition to and including June 29, 2009.

In my case the carrier, adjusters, supervisors, I:M:E. doctor, and lawyer as well as the state, worked together when my contract for lifetime medicals was breeched. All the evidence dissappeared out of the state records, as I was preparing to file complaint with the bar. I have copies outside the country. The state canned my paralegal friend from defending me and did not appoint temp fill-in attorney. Is there a lawyer anywhere who can help me? Sarah Palin wont respond. iris
