Mr. Bumble Will Have His Day In Court; Disabled Plaintiffs Cry Foul Over Dismissals

Self-styled Bounty Hunter Attorney Frustrated With Orange County Judges

One Orange County Superior Court judge has made it to the front page of this week's Courthouse News by dismissing disability discrimination suits as frivolous, despite representation by Morse MehrbanSee the article where the judge is accused of misquoting Mr. Bumble in dismissing these cases.  Mr. Mehrban refers to himself as a bounty hunter.

In response, the two disabled plaintiffs, David Gunther and Karl Rountree, have filed suit against the California State Court system in Federal Court in Fresno.  The allegations also include other Orange County Superior Court judges, the Honorable Greg Lewis, the Honorable John M. Watson, the Honorable Charles Margines, the Honorable Tam Nomoto Schumann and the Honorable Dennis S. Choate, and surprisingly an unnamed clerk of court from Orange County North Court Department N18 (see paragraph 47), who Mehrban threatened with an FBI investigation when she couldn't find his trial documents. 

Judge Lewis and Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court (along with another Kern County judge) are defendants in the case.  You can read Plaintiff's characterization of Judge Anderson's "Mr. Bumble" comment here in paragraph 39.

Despite Plaintiffs' claims that the California court system has stopped them from petitioning to protect their rights as disabled individuals, MIPTC bets the Honorable Margaret Anderson along with the other judges will be upheld on this case.
