It’s been a long, a very long legal battle for the Golins who since 2001 have been seeking the release of their daughter Nancy Golin from her present day captor, the State of California. The issue in this case, is whether the Golins, Jeff and his wife have been vexatious litigants.
I don’t know about you, but as a parent, I personally would do anything, to bring about their release. We today, can only look at a modern day event involving students who were jailed by the Iranians for straying into their country while out hiking.
There jailing prompted international outrage and appeals by their parents. Who in their right mind would call them vexatious?
Well, in this case, that would be lead attorney for the defendants, (City of Palo Alto) Scott D. Pinsky in the matter of – JEFFREY GOLIN et al. Plaintiffs and Appellants, v. CLIFFORD B. ALLENBY et al., Defendants and Respondents.
In an email received from Scott D. Pinsky he stated – “No Comment” concerning this decision.
What does this decision mean? It means, it will now pave the way for the Golins to perhaps finally, finally have the entire merits of their case heard before a jury.
Something attorneys, Scott D. Pinsky, Gary Baum and Donald Larkin for the City of Palo Alto have been desperately trying to prevent. It could result in not only the release of their daughter Nancy, but a multi-million dollar judgment should they prevail.
It’s a stunning reversal and a case which will ultimately impact any potential state sanctioning and alleged warehousing (jailing) of disabled Americans without the benefit of “Due Process”.
