    My CT cases were "lesser-known cases". In fact they were not even covered by the local press, in spite of my begging them to attend. In fact, the only person who attended by trial throughout was Sally Joughin, founding member of People
    Against Injustice, New Haven, which I subsequently joined and was active in for several years. In brief, this testimonial to Mr. Zeldis is false and misleading for the simple reason that he took no interest in me or my cases when they crossed his desk on the way to the Appellate Court. He was of no help at all; he hurt me, and I will not forget or forgive him and/or the corrupt State of CT. State v. Doriss was the most important case in the history of CT during the decade for the sheer number of issues raised and abuses perpetrated upon me by City and State. Where is that in any record, anywhere? It is in my federal civil rights complaint against City and State, which I took to the Supreme Court of the U.S., pro se, without the help of any attorney.

    Why did you take my comment down? A mutual admiration society, are ye?
    Not to worry: I saved it and am shopping it around the internet as we speak.
    Feel free to google my name. You will not be disappointed in what I have to say about the corrupt and incompetent State of CONnecticut.
    You will be hearing from me again. Just because you say you‘re the "Constitution State" does not mean that it is so. I say you‘re the Un-Constitution State, a state in serious denial.
    Marin Zeldis was part of the problem, not part of the solution.
