IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA


LARRY KLAYMAN,

Plaintiff,
v.

JUDICIAL WATCH, et. al.

Defendants.






Case No: 1:13-cv-20610-CMA



AFFIDAVIT OF LARRY KLAYMAN

I, Larry Klayman, being over eighteen years of age and duly competent to testify, hereby
swear and affirm as follows:

1. I have personal knowledge of the following facts and, when called upon as a witness, will
testify competently thereto.
2. I am a resident of Florida and have, at all material times, resided in and done business in
this judicial district.
3. I began my legal career in this district as an associate for Blackwell and Walker, which
was the largest litigation firm in Florida at the time. I was admitted into The Florida Bar
and became a member of the bar of this Court on December 7, 1977. I have practiced law
in this district continuously and extensively throughout my career, and have active cases
pending in this district and elsewhere in Florida.
4. I founded Judicial Watch in 1994, a public interest group that purports to fight against
government corruption. I left Judicial Watch in 2003 to run as a candidate for the U.S.
Senate in Florida in the Republican primary election.
5. I am now the founder, chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch, which also has
the similar goal of fighting government corruption through legal advocacy.

6. Over the last thirty-seven years of my legal practice, I have enjoyed a successful legal
career including having had a court declare that President William Clinton committed a
crime. I also helped expose the Chinagate scandal involving President Clinton.
7. I also brought a case for Jose Basulto of Brothers to the Rescue in this Court, which
resulted in a $1.8 million judgment against the Republic of Cuba, represented the Miami
family of Elian Gonzales and other victims of Fidel Castro, such as journalists who were
jailed by Castro for their political beliefs. In this latter regard, I not only filed a criminal
complaint for these victims against Fidel Castro in Belgian courts, but also lobbied and
testified before various European parliaments, including those of Italy and France, as well
as lobbied the European Union for increased sanctions on Cuba. Over the years, I have
been extremely active representing and advocating for Cuban-American interests in the
Miami community in particular, and continue to do so.
8. I also represented, at all material times, the families of Navy SEALs and other Special
Operators, one of which resides in Florida, over a helicopter shoot-down in Afghanistan
on a mission code named Extortion 17. These SEALs were responsible for the capture
and killing of terrorist Osama Bin Laden. The shoot-down recently resulted in a
congressional hearing regarding the circumstances surrounding the deaths of these
servicemen.
9. On December 16, 2013 I was granted a preliminary injunction in my case against the
National Security Agency (―NSA‖) (Case No. 13-cv-851) and the Obama Administration,
and the Honorable Richard J. Leon found for the first time in the history of the country
that the collection of metadata telephony records by the NSA was likely unconstitutional
under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
10. As a result of my success against the NSA and the Obama Administration, ABC News
did a profile on me, entitled ―Meet Larry Klayman: Man Behind the NSA Lawsuit‖
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 2 of 631

which is exemplary of my reputation. A true and correct copy of the profile has been
attached as Attachment A.
11. As an attorney, I rely on my virtues and honesty, as my reputation will determine the
amount of clients that come to me for their legal problems and in the public interest.
12. Any damage done to my reputation would harm my ability to practice law as a lawyer
convicted of a felony is likely to be disbarred.
13. Constance Ruffley is employed by Judicial Watch in a managerial position as head of its
west coast office. She speaks for Judicial Watch and is a representative of Judicial Watch.
At the time the defamatory remarks were made, Ruffley admitted that she attended the
event where she offered up the defamatory remarks on behalf of Judicial Watch. Ruffley
Deposition at 21; Ruffley Aff. at 7. Attached as Attachment 1 to this Opposition to
Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment is a true and correct copy of the publication
which defamed me, which was circulated widely on the internet in this district,
throughout Florida, the United States, and internationally.
14. As a public interest attorney and one who has brought lawsuits challenging the eligibility
of Barack Obama, I am fully aware of the website titled ―World’s Leading Obama
Eligibility Challenge Web Site,‖ of Orly Taitz and the publications which comprise
Exhibits 1, 2, and others to the depositions of Judicial Watch directors. I became aware
of, and viewed myself, these publications and ordered my web-master, Ethan Stone, to
save them for possible litigation if Judicial Watch did not correct the defamatory
statements. See Transcript of Klayman at 8. These saved postings comprise the exhibits I
used at the depositions of Judicial Watch’s directors and a true and correct copy of these
postings are attached as Exhibits 1 and 2 to Plaintiff's Opposition to Defendant's Motion
for Summary Judgment. The Taitz website postings are therefore authenticated under the
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 3 of 631

case precedent in In Re Homestore.com, Inc. Sec.Litig., 347 F.Supp.2d. 769, 782 (C.D.
Cal. 2004) and Rule 902(6) of the Federal Rules of Evidence.
15. Ruffley falsely stated to Dr. Orly Taitz of the ―Defend Our Freedom Foundation‖ that
donors ―should know about litigation in Ohio, where he was convicted just recentlty [sic]
of not paying large amount in child support.‖ See Exhibit 1 to Opp. Motion Summary
Judgment. When I spoke to Orly Taitz on the phone regarding her subpoena, Taitz
confirmed that Ruffley indeed said the defamatory remarks to her. ―And she confirmed to
me that in fact Ruffley had said those things.‖ See Transcript of Klayman at 13.
16. Judicial Watch’s Constance Ruffley, who admittedly was a legal secretary before joining
Judicial Watch, in particular since she works in a management position for a legal
organization, knows the meaning of the word ―convicted‖ and intended to convey that to
my donors and the general public. Ruffley admits that she knows the difference between
being indicted for an alleged crime, where there is a presumption of innocence until
proven guilty, and being convicted. In the context of the O.J. Simpson trial, in which a
Judicial Watch employee, Ernie Norris, had participated while previously Deputy District
Attorney for Los Angeles County, Ruffley testified:
Question: You have spent a good deal of time working with Ernie Norris, who is former
Deputy District Attorney of Los Angeles - -
Answer: Yes.
Question: -- at Judicial Watch. Correct?
Answer: Yes.
Question: Correct?
Answer: Yes.
Question: Ernie is a -- Ernie was a criminal prosecutor for a number of years with the
District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles. Correct?
Answer: 32 years. Yes.
Question: In fact, he played a role in the prosecution of O.J. Simpson underneath Deputy
D.A. Gil Garcetti. Correct? . . .
Answer: No, he did not have anything to do with the O.J. Simpson trial. The O.J.
Simpson trial was given to his underling, Marcia Clark, and to Chris Darden. But Ernie
did not have --
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 4 of 631

5
Question: You are aware that -- you have talked about the O.J. Simpson case with Mr.
Norris. Correct?
Answer: Oh, off and on.
Question: And Mr. Norris was quite -- was quite despondent or upset that O.J. Simpson
was not convicted of the crime of murder. Correct?
Answer: I can’t speak to his feelings on that or emotions.
Question: You are aware that O.J. Simpson was indicted but never convicted for murder.
Correct?
Answer: Did you say ―Ernie Simpson‖ or ―O.J. Simpson‖? . . .
Question: O.J.
Answer: Yes.
Question: Okay.
Answer: I’m aware that he was not convicted.
Question: Therefore, you know the meaning of the word ―convicted‖ as opposed to
―indicted.‖ Correct?
Answer: More now. But at the time -- but at the time, I was not aware of a difference
between indicted and convicted.
Question: So during the time of the O.J. Simpson trial, you thought that O.J. Simpson
was convicted because he was indicted?
Answer: No.
Question: You are a highly intelligent person; are you not, Ms. Ruffley?
Answer: Thank you. Yes. See Deposition of Constance Ruffley at 76-79.

17. The false and defamatory statements were, in fact, published on ―The World’s Leading
Obama Eligibility Website.‖ Orly Taitz writes and reports to the readers, ―Ms. Ruffley
actually advised me that Larry Klayman is not licensed in California, she told me that he
no longer works with the Judicial Watch and that donors should know about litigation in
Ohio, where he was convicted just recentlty [sic] of not paying large amount in child
support. She provided me a lot of other information.‖ Exhibit 2. This publication has
been widely published on other websites and is still on the Internet.
18. I have never been convicted of any crime in any circumstance. Additionally, I had a valid
defense for not paying the child support as my obligation to pay the child support was
nullified under Virginia law, since I had been completely and unlawfully denied access to
my children. Hartman v. Hartman, 33 Vir. Cir. 373, 1994 WL 1031136 (Apr. 13, 1994).
19. Attached as Attachment B is a true and correct copy of the Agreed Judgment Entry
Regarding Child Support Arreage and Withdrawal of Capias. This Judgment Entry
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 5 of 631

6
shows that any such contempt had been vacated and dismissed against me, as I had paid
the amount due while reserving all of my rights to appeal and fight the payment of the
child support, so I could see my children.
20. Attached as Attachment C is a true and correct copy of the dismissal of all charges
against me that was ordered by Judge Michael Donnelly of the Cuyahoga Court of
Common Pleas with regard to my alleged failure to pay child support. This document
proves that I was never convicted of a crime and the indictment was, in fact, dismissed.
21. On advice of counsel, I had to have a contempt order issued in order to take the disputed
matter of my child support payments to the Court of Appeals Of Ohio, Eighth Appellate
District. However, all contempt orders were dismissed. See Attachments B, C.
22. All of the documentation showing that I had never been convicted of a crime was public
information. In addition, the dismissal and vacating of the contempt order was noted on
the public docket for the Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court. A true and correct
copy of the most recent five pages of the docket has been attached as Attachment D.
23. Prior to the above defamatory publication, it had become publicly known, through myself
and others, that I planned to soon file a high profile case in Florida involving the
eligibility of President Barack Obama to run as a candidate in Florida in regard to the
state’s primary and general election for 2012.
24. Judicial Watch routinely represents individuals and interests with the same legal needs as
those I represent.
25. Ruffley’s statement on behalf of Judicial Watch that I was convicted of a crime has
caused me severe emotional distress. I have had problems sleeping and concentrating
during work, which affect me to this day, since the false statements are still on the
Internet.
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 6 of 631

7
26. The statements have also caused harm to my reputation in this district, throughout
Florida, the United States, and globally.
27. Throughout my legal profession, my reputation as an attorney has been of one who has
possessed exceptional morals and ethics. This reputation has been well evidenced
publicly, as seen from just a sampling of articles written about me, which are attached to
this affidavit and referenced in the following paragraphs.
28. Dr. Richard Swier of RedCounty.com, who stated, ―Larry believes it is more important to
be virtuous than be liked‖, has called me the ―One Man Tea Party‖. A true and correct
copy of Dr. Swier's article has been attached as Attachment E.
29. The Washington Times recently released an article profiling my steadfast principles,
entitled ―Legal gadfly in NSA surveillance case can sting even his own mother in pursuit
of principles.‖ The article, profiling my recent success fighting for constitutional rights
against the Obama Administration, stated that I remain ―ready to rumble on behalf of
ethics and morality within the American legal and governmental systems.‖ A true and
correct copy of the Washington Times article has been attached as Attachment F.
30. Joseph Farah of WND.com wrote about my involvement in uncovering the Chinagate
scandal and other legal endeavors in an article entitled, ―Thank God for Larry Klayman.‖
A true and correct version of this article has been attached to this affidavit as Attachment
G. In this article, Farah wrote, consistent with my reputation, that, ―Just when you
assume all hope of accountability for these official criminal acts is gone, Klayman rides
to the rescue wearing the white hat.‖
31. Farah's other writings also confirm my reputation for having strong morals and ethics. As
another example, a true and correct version of his article, ―Larry Klayman, My Hero,‖
has been attached to this affidavit as Attachment H. In this article, Farah wrote, ―Larry
Klayman will do what is right — no matter who is involved. Klayman is a guy who never
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 7 of 631

8
shrinks from his standards of ethics and morality. He’s a man who looks to no one but
God for guidance and direction.‖
32. Additionally, Farah publicly endorsed me (as others did) during my U.S. Senate
campaign in 2004. In announcing my endorsement, he referred to me as a ―man of
character and principle.‖ A true and correct version of this endorsement, ―Larry
Klayman For U.S. Senate,‖ has been attached to this affidavit as Attachment I. In this
endorsement, Farah wrote, ―Larry Klayman is my hero because he has integrity – enough
to prevent him from blind loyalty to party or ideology and keep him focused on
principle.‖
33. On January 27, 2014, I conducted a deposition of Paul Orfanedes, Director of Litigation,
Board of Directors Secretary and Treasurer of Judicial Watch. A true and correct version
of the transcript of his deposition has been attached to this affidavit as Attachment J.
34. On January 27, 2014, I conducted a deposition of Christopher Farrell, Director of
Research and Investigation of Judicial Watch. A true and correct version of the transcript
of his deposition has been attached to this affidavit as Attachment K.
35. On January 29, 2014, I conducted a deposition of Thomas J. Fitton, President of Judicial
Watch. A true and correct version of the transcript of his deposition has been attached to
this affidavit as Attachment L.
36. On January 31, 2014, I conducted a deposition of Constance Ruffley. A true and correct
version of the transcript of his deposition has been attached to this affidavit as
Attachment M.
37. A process server made several attempts to serve Taitz beginning within the week of
January 6, 2014. Plaintiff was told that Taitz was out of town, but it became apparent that
Taitz was evading service of process.
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 8 of 631

9
38. Well before the deadline of discovery to be completed, on January 20, 2014, Taitz was
personally served at her business address with a Subpoena Duces Tecum requiring Tatiz
to appear and testify at a deposition scheduled for January 30, 2014.
39. During the week of January 27-31, 2014, I spoke with Taitz with regard to the deposition
scheduled for January 30, 2014.
40. Taitz confirmed to me over the phone that the statements Ruffley had made to her on the
February 22, 2012 event were accurate. Again, Ruffley said, on behalf of Judicial Watch,
―Klayman is not licensed in California . . . and that donors should know about litigation
in Ohio, where he was convicted just recentlty [sic] of not paying large amount in child
support.‖
41. Taitz later stated to me that she would refuse to appear for her deposition scheduled for
January 30, 2014, or at any other time.
42. On February 21, 2014, Magistrate-Judge Andrea Simonton of this Court advised during
a hearing on the issue of the subpoena of Taitz that such a motion to compel compliance
with the subpoena must now, due to a recent change in the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure, be filed in the court issuing the subpoena in the district of deponent, which in
this case is the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
43. On March 4, 2014 I therefore filed a Motion to Compel Compliance with the Subpoena
with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. A true and correct
version of the motion is attached as Attachment N.
44. In this Motion to Compel Compliance, I requested expedited handling of the motion. The
earliest available time this court could to hear the motion was on April 7, 2014. I have
been urging the California court to shorten the time to hear the motion, and refer the
motion back to this court, but as of yet it has not done so. Attached as Attachment O, is
the scheduling order of the Central District of California.
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 9 of 631

10
45. To this date, 57 days after service of the subpoena, Taitz never made or filed any
objections to the subpoena and thus has waived any and all objections to the subpoena
and simply defied it. Judicial Watch did not timely object either. It is crystal clear that it
will be enforced.
46. As stated in Plaintiff’s opposition, notwithstanding Taitz’s future testimony after she is
ordered to comply with the subpoena, the statements of Ruffley, as published again by
Taitz, are admissible for purposes of opposing Defendant’s summary judgment motion.
See Opposition at pg. 23.
47. I was damaged monetarily, as well as to my reputation and emotionally, by the
defamatory and other tortious acts of Defendant Judicial Watch as the defamatory
statements were published to donors, as Ruffley suggested to Taitz. As a result, I was not
paid attorneys fees and costs – billed and unbilled – by those persons who hired me,
including George Miller, who had hired me on behalf of Michael Voeltz, the eligibility
Plaintiff. Miller was raising money from donors to pay for my services but these donors
stopped giving after the subject defamatory statements were published. Thus, I lost about
$20,000.00 of billed attorneys fees and costs and several hundred thousand dollars in
unbilled legal fees, travel expenses, and other costs. Deposition of Klayman at 120-121.
48. Only after Plaintiff moved to compel did Judicial Watch produce the attached email from
Connie Ruffley which stated “Gee whiz, it's been just 9 1/2 years since [Plaintiff] left
[Judicial Watch]. Should there be a 10-year anniversary on 9/23? <grin> [sic].” This
is additional evidence that she and Judicial Watch acted with actual malice against me. A
true and correct copy of this produced email is attached as Attachment P to this affidavit.
49. A true and correct copy of Exhibit 3 which was presented at the depositions of Farrell,
Orfanedes, and Fitton is attached as Attachment Q to this affidavit.
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 10 of
631

11
50. A true and correct copy of Exhibit 9 which was presented at the depositions of Farrell,
Orfanedes, and Fitton is attached as Attachment R to this affidavit.


I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the
foregoing is true and correct. Executed on March 17, 2014.

Meet Larry Klayman: Man Behind the NSA
Lawsuit
Dec. 19, 2013
By ALEX LAZAR
214 Like 109 Share
Name: Larry Klayman
Age: 62
Occupation: Founder of Freedom Watch and Judicial Watch as well as a World New Daily
columnist
Claim to fame: As the former head of Judicial Watch, Klayman may be best known for filing
numerous lawsuits against the Clinton Administration during the 1990s – especially while the
Monica Lewinsky scandal was unfolding. In 1998, Newsweek wrote an article that claimed Klayman
had once sued his mother - information that he says was given to the magazine by the Clinton
administration. Klayman, a big proponent of the Tea Party and its ideals, has in the past questioned
President Obama's assertions that he was born in the United States. Now, however, Klayman is
back in the public eye as the man who challenged in court the legality of the NSA's authority to
keep and store the metadata of American citizens – and won.
ABC News spoke with Klayman about the recent NSA ruling and his other famous lawsuits. The
interview has been edited for clarity and brevity.
ABC News: What are your thoughts on the ruling?
Klayman: "The real victory is to the American people who have developed a deep distrust in their
government. This is the biggest violation of constitutional rights in American history. It has more
than a chilling effect on free speech. We're very gratified that this judge did the courageous thing
and stuck his neck out and in my view he's an American hero. I think it will go to the Supreme
Court and I'm confident that we'll win. You can't have the metadata of over 300 million Americans
and say that's a difficult issue to decide. Metadata is even more intrusive than listening to content in
some ways."
ABC News: What NSA reforms do you think are needed?

RECOMMENDED FOR YOU
Klayman: "We're asking the court in our case to do very strict monitoring…to make sure that this is
not happening, will not happen again. We didn't challenge the constitutionality of the Patriot Act or
the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act…we intend to raise that with the court. I believe those acts
are unconstitutional."
ABC News: Do you still believe President Obama is not by birth an American citizen?
Klayman: "His birth certificate that he put forward is a fraud. We've had experts look at it. He did
not have two American citizen parents by his own admission. Just for the same reason that Rubio
is out and Cruz is out and John McCain – people thought that he didn't qualify for that reason
either. See that's why the Republicans don't want to challenge it…and no judge wants to touch it so
far."
ABC News: Please tell me about the claim out there that you once sued your mother
Klayman: "My grandmother was dying, and my mother…had dementia. My stepfather had undue
influence on her and took all my grandmom's money and put a do not resuscitate order on her
charts. I had to bring lawsuits to get the do not resuscitate order off her charts and to get her
money back so she could afford to be in a nursing home because her insurance had lapsed
because my mother…she was with dementia, hadn't followed what was going on. It was essentially
a case against my stepfather – not against my mother, but I had to…name my mother because
legally she was next of kin. That's what it was about."
ABC News: Do you still think Larry Claypool was a parody of you on The West Wing?
Klayman: "There was no question it was me. If you look at the people that were the writers on the
show…DeeDee Myers in the White House, Lawrence O'Donnell – now with MSNBC, and Pat
Caddell who's a former Carter pollster. I was flattered by it even though they poked fun at me
because we made it into the pop culture."
ABC News: What are your next steps?
Klayman: "We have many lawsuits. We're representing families of SEAL Team Six. We're
advocating protests and peaceful nonviolence, civil disobedience, to try to get the government to
become responsive to the American people. If Gandhi could do it in India, we could do it here. I
will not be deterred by attacks from the left or anyplace else, that actually emboldens me more to
do what I think needs to be done."

"ABC News spoke with Klayman"
Might ABC be so kind as to tell its readership who at ABC interviewed Klayman?
Klayman: "His birth certificate that he put forward is a fraud."
ABC: Well golly gee, I can't for the life of me think of a single followup question . . . so let's
talk about more important issues . . . how about your mother . . . ya, that's it . . . your
mother.

Hopefully Obama's fraud, forgery, identity theft, crimes and treason will get addressed!

Forget it Dave, Congress is in the game with Barry. Why has no one raised the
question on his constitutional eligibility?
And why has the (inferior) Supreme court refused to hear cases over him?

Keep up the good fight, Mr. Klayman! You have my support as well that of milliions of
Americans. The lawlessness of the Obama regime is unprecedented. It has reached
critical-mass. Nixon lied about a third-rate burglarly. Obama lied about the needless
slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi, about "If you like your insurance plan, you can
keep it. Period.", and about his "proof positive" of a Hawaiian birth by his April 27, 2011
release of his bogus LFBC. As a nation, we are WAY beyond the point of appointing a
special prosecutor and beginning impeachment proceedings.

ABC News: Do you still believe President Obama is not by birth an American citizen?
The relevant question should be
ABC News: Do you still believe President Obama is not a natural born citizen of America?
A "natural born citizen" is what the US Constitution requires for a person to be eligible to
be President. There are American citizens by birth who are NOT natural born citizens.
ABC News deliberately asked the question as they did so as to deceive readers/viewers
about the difference between natural born citizen and citizen at birth.

You have my attention. What exactly is the difference between "by birth an
American citizen" and "a natural born citizen of America?"

mauser 98 • 18 days ago rtk25301
both parents must be US citizens at time of birth to be pres. Obama's
father was never a US citizen. Cruz , Rubio , Jindal all ineligible to be pres.

By Dr. Richard Swier (Scribe) on July 31st, 2010
Long before there was a TEA Party, Glenn Beck 912 movement, 13 Patriots and thousands of others, there was Larry Klayman. Larry believes it is more important to be virtuous than be liked.
Larry believes there is an ultimate right and wrong.
Some of you may not know Larry Klayman but you should. If you believe in the Constitution of the United States and that the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of our federal government
are corrupt to the core then you need to read Larry's book, WHORES: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment. (/web/20120419054811/http://www.amazon.com/WHORES-Why-Came-Fi ght-
Establ i shment/dp/0979201225)
If you see our courts legislating from the bench rather than enforcing the law as in Arizona then you will love Larry Klayman. If you love politics and want to understand what really happens behind
the scenes get his book. I just finished reading WHORES (/web/20120419054811/http://www.amazon.com/WHORES-Why-Came-Fi ght-Establ i shment/dp/0979201225) and could not put it down. It is a mosaic of
both the man and his struggles against an out of control government bent on aggrandizing itself at the expense of the people and the law. It is about corruption on the part of both parties writ large. I
found it particularly interesting because of Larry's insights into Florida politics. You see Larry ran for the very same U.S. Senate seat Marco Rubio is seeking. Larry ran against, among others, Bill
McCollum and Mel Martinez. If you want to learn more about Florida politics and political insiders, read this book.
Larry is the founder of Judicial Watch (/web/20120419054811/http://www.j udi ci al watch.org/) and Freedom Watch USA(/web/20120419054811/http://www.freedomwatchusa.org/about-us/) . Freedom Watch USA " is the only group that speaks
through actions, rather than just words." When reading his book I found it a fascinating personal and professional journey that reflects the work of a real patriot. Larry has won my patriot award for being a thorn in the side of Iran,
Hugo Chavez, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Not a bad record if I say so myself.
I really felt a symbiotic relationship with Larry as I read his story. When you speak truth to power you are always attacked. The progressive model is identify the target, marginalize it and then demonize it. That is the cross that
Larry, TEA Party members and others who are like minded bear today.
Larry was fighting the establishment since the early 1990s and he continues to do so even today with the filing of a lawsuit against Elena Kagan, President Obama' s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to the WorldNetDaily.com column, Papers prepped to disbar Elena Kagan (/web/20120419054811/http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=184317) :
[Larry Klayman] One of Washington, D.C.'s most feared and fearless corruption watchers has told WND he intends to file an ethics complaint to have Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan disbarred from practicing before the
court she aspires to join – and possibly subjected to criminal prosecution – for her role in an escalating controversy over partial-birth abortion.
As WND reported (/web/20120419054811/http://www.worl dnetdai l y.com/i ndex.php?fa=PAGE.vi ew&pageId=184165) , dozens of pro-life organizations are already asking the Senate to investigate Kagan's 1997 amendment to an
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists report, which was then used by the Supreme Court as justification for overturning Nebraska's partial-birth abortion ban in 2000.
In her confirmation hearings, Kagan defended the amendment, saying, "My only dealings with (the College) were about talking with them about how to ensure that their statement expressed their views."
Several analyses have concluded, however, that Kagan's amendment dramatically changed the meaning of the organization statement, and court records show the statement was passed off on the Supreme Court
as official scientific opinion, even though the organization's panel of scientists never approved Kagan's wording.
Klayman told WND he believes Kagan's behind-the-scenes work constitutes "conspiracy to defraud the Supreme Court," and he intends to take the evidence that has been compiled by the pro-life groups
(/web/20120419054811/http://www.aul .org/featured-i mages/Kagan-Ethi cs-Report.pdf) to file a complaint before the clerk's office of the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking to have Kagan disbarred as a practicing
Supreme Court.
So the battle goes on for Larry, you and me. I hope you will read Larry's book (/web/20120419054811/http://www.amazon.com/WHORES-Why-Came-Fi ght-Establ i shment/dp/0979201225) and make it a point to learn more about the
great work he is doing to stop corruption in our courts, at the White House and in Congress. Larry has been a one man TEA Party, now it is time for us to join with him as we together fight in the same cause - a
grass roots revolution to save the Republic.

...like Larry Klayman. If ever there was a time to "Sweep the Bums Out" it is this November. We need to quit accepting excuses from career politicians, Republican or Democrat.
Unless they have a provable record of speaking and voting against the terrible policies which got us in this quagmire, they need to go.

We need to support people like Klayman who accurately sounded warnings, but sadly were drowned out by the P.R. machines.

The time to sweep them out starts in the primary season. Otherwise in Novemnber, it may be a bum vs an almost certainly Progressive bum and maybe some third party

CITIZEN' S GRAND JURY is a great idea. How is this done and where do we find out the legal papers ( or whatever is needed ) to organize one ? If the government will not act, it
is time the People did. Save America !!!! Pray for America !!!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!!!!

Excellent title and so true.
Larry Klayman is the original One Man Tea Party. I could not put his book down. He hold to his convictions and I respect his integrity. Highly recommend his book, Whores
and give it to all my friends to read about a true patriot. Larry will always fight for what is right.

I do not like the way this op-ed makes me feel. The writer is in many ways inviting civil unrest.

Watch You Tube- It's almost the same tone. Rush Limbaugh: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iPM3TGcef4&feature=player_embedded

He also believes that WikiLeaks is just fine for America. Tell the man I think he is way over the top with his sarcastic verbiage. I am a Reagan conservative who understands a
bully when I read one.

I have been wanting to thank Red Country for the Dr.'s kind words.

As for my latest column, "Remember the Bastille," I am just opining on what I see reality to be. If people like me are not allowed or permitted to talk freely, there will be civil
unrest. If it comes to it, I would resort to civil disobedience, Ghandi style. I do not believe in violence. But the government and its so called leaders have brought on the likelihood
for this; the nation is angry because it is run by "Whores" who have brought us to our knees, financially, in international affairs, and morally. Although I am not a big fan of
President Truman, I think he said something to the effect that its too bad if you can't take the truth.
Lets all pray and act on behalf of our great nation and the world we live in...

The only Bully here is our Gangster tyrannical Resident NObama- & the corrupt semi circles around that protect.
Larry has been around the hood for quite some time and and probably understands better than us how and whby we are being pushed into a dictated corner.
There has never been more of a critical need to protect what our freedoms than now. Lots at stake, win or lose- ask or take.
Citizens Grand Jury? Might be only think that could work. Here to help make that happen.
We're all on our way to a virtual prison-(have u seen whats on legislative horizon?) so what do we have to lose?
Civil rest is what I really fear today.
Thanks for your efforts and books and for taking on FB Larry! You're a real hero!

1/6/14 Legal gadfly in NSA surveillance case can sting even his own mother in pursuit of principles - Washington Times

By Jennifer Harper - The Washington Times Tuesday, December 17, 2013
There’s still a fire in his belly and multiple causes in his heart. Lawyer and longtime conservative legal
gadfly Larry Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) , the man behind the first successful lawsuit against the
National Security Agency(/topics/national-security-agency/) ’s mass surveillance programs, remains
ready to rumble on behalf of ethics and morality within the American legal and governmental systems.
Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) emerged as an unlikely champion of constitutional freedoms this
week when a federal judge agreed with his contention that the NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/)
exceeded its constitutional authority by systematically gathering the telephone records of millions of
Americans.
It was the first major setback for the federal government in court after the sensational revelations by
former NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/) contractor Edward Snowden(/topics/edward-snowden/) .
It was not, however, Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) ’s first time in court. During his career, Mr.
Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) has battled the Clinton, George W. Bush(/topics/george-w-bush/) and
Obama administrations, as well as varied targets such as OPEC(/topics/organization-of-petroleum-
exporting-countries/) , Facebook(/topics/facebook/) and — in a dispute over health care expenses for
his grandmother — his own mother.
Journalist Geraldo Rivera(/topics/geraldo-rivera/) once called him a legal wild man, and Bill
Clinton(/topics/bill-clinton/) strategist James Carville(/topics/james-carville/) referred to him as “a little
twerp.” An opposing lawyer described him as snide and argumentative, and a Midwestern newspaper
claimed he was akin to “a bad case of chiggers.”
But Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) said in an interview that his latest legal triumph was founded on
a bedrock of principle.
“I think this attitude is something you’re born with. I don’t like when people lie to me. It gets under my
skin,” said Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) , 62. “I was a Justice Department(/topics/department-of-
justice/) lawyer. I saw a government that I truly believed in get corrupted, and I took offense. I still take
offense. That’s what keeps me going.”
After Mr. Snowden(/topics/edward-snowden/) ’s leaks this year concerning vast government collection
programs of Americans’ phone records and metadata, Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) filed suit
June 6 saying his own rights had been violated by the secret snooping programs.
The case was heard in November. On Monday, District Court Judge Richard J. Leon sided with the
veteran lawyer and activist, ruling that the clandestine agency(/topics/national-security-agency/) ’s
collection of citizen phone calls likely violated the Fourth Amendment. Although the administration
strongly rejected the ruling and the judge stayed his own decision in the face of a near-certain
appeal, Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) had scored an unlikely courtroom win.
“This judge is a hero, and there are not many of them out there,” Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/)
said.
The ruling shows no signs of curbing Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) ’s natural exuberance or his
willingness to take on virtually any opponent. In the calmest of voices, the lawyer offered a caustic

criticism of the state of the nation’s capital.
“President Obama is the most corrupt and compromised leader to ever occupy the White House,” Mr.
Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) said in a matter-of-fact tone.
He is more concerned with the results than with making friends or avoiding offense.
“In this case, I want the NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/) and other agencies to be kept under
control and to be watched by the courts in a way that is transparent to the public. And I want people to
know what is at stake here. We’ve learned that every American is under surveillance and many
believe that there will be retaliation against them. It’s like a police state worse than anything George
Orwell ever conceived of.”
He is careful to maintain some parameters, however, where surveillance is justified.
“The NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/) has a legitimate right to pursue the collection of metadata if
there are genuine links to terrorism,” Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) said. “Still, I want the courts to
step in, or we as a nation could go into a state of violent revolution.”
Although multiple polls reveal that the majority of Americans perceive Mr. Snowden(/topics/edward-
snowden/) , now living in exile in Russia as more NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/) secrets are
spilled, to be a criminal or traitor, Mr. Klayman(/topics/larry-klayman/) disagrees.
“We owe a debt a gratitude to Edward Snowden(/topics/edward-snowden/) . He shouldn’t have
collaborated with Russia. But he forced the NSA(/topics/national-security-agency/) to admit to what they
were doing,” he said.

Fact: The biggest donor to Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign — bigger than the teachers union or any
political action committee — was the Riady family, long suspected of being Chinese intelligence agents.
Fact: The Riadys had been sponsors of Clinton’s political campaigns since the 1970s when he first ran for attorney
general in the state of Arkansas.
Fact: The largest individual donor to the 1996 Clinton re-election effort was Bernard Schwartz, chairman and chief
executive officer of the Loral Corp. One of Loral’s biggest business partners and investors is the government of
China through a front company called China Telecom.
Fact: In 1996, a presidential election year, President Clinton placed an area in Utah the size of Connecticut rich in
clean-burning coal off limits to mining by executive order. The biggest beneficiary of that action was the Riady family,
with coal interests in Indonesia, the only other major source of clean-burning coal in the world.
Fact: Webster Hubbell stopped cooperating with prosecutors after James Riady met with him, then President
Clinton, then dropped off a check to Hubbell for $100,000 for work that was never performed.
Fact: The FBI reported to the White House that the Chinese government had made a concerted effort to influence
the 1996 U.S. elections, yet Clinton did nothing — he didn’t expel the Chinese ambassador, he didn’t invoke trade
sanctions, he didn’t even harshly rebuke Beijing.
On and on it goes. From the sweetheart treatment of the COSCO shipping company to the “back channels” of White
House access provided by John Huang, the China-gate scandal remains, without doubt, a cover-up of historic
proportions. These are but a few of the startling and undeniable truths of life with regard to the selling of the presidency,
1992-1998.
Attorney General Janet Reno performed perhaps her penultimate tap dance yesterday when she announced her
decision not to name an independent counsel to investigate Vice President Al Gore’s involvement with illegal campaign
fund-raising that involves the China connection. The final act for Reno, before she resigns her post for health reasons,
will be to deny the appointment of an independent counsel to investigate Clinton.
If all goes according to plan, the greatest crime in American history will then be complete.
But thank God for Larry Klayman and Judicial Watch. Just when you assume all hope of accountability for these official
criminal acts is gone, Klayman rides to the rescue wearing the white hat.
An hour before Reno announced her decision yesterday, Judicial Watch filed the civil lawsuit focusing on the China-gate
scandal. Named as defendants in the shareholder derivative, civil conspiracy and RICO action are Loral Chairman and
CEO Bernard Schwartz, Clinton, first lady Hillary Clinton, Gore, Huang, the DNC, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign
Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and others.
As corrupt as Reno’s investigations into this subject have been, the Republicans hardly look better. Rep. Chris Cox, R-
CA, appointed by Speaker Newt Gingrich to head an inquiry into the sale of sensitive technology, the flow of campaign
contributions from China and the possibility of bribes and influence peddling, has shown little indication his probe is
going anywhere fast.

It’s time to step up and take your best shot, Mr. Cox. Do it now, while there’s still a chance America can recover from the
national-security damage done by this administration. If you’re not prepared to tell us what you found and add to the list
of impeachment counts, step aside and let Larry Klayman do the job.
Likewise, Ken Starr, if you’re all through with Filegate and have decided to exonerate the president of wrongdoing, why
not let Larry Klayman have a shot at interviewing those witnesses you overlooked and examining the evidence you
determined to be insufficient.
* * *
When it comes to justice in America, it’s not easy maintaining your faith in the system anymore. But that’s why this
Thanksgiving season, I’m grateful for the courageous and determined work of Larry Klayman and a few other gutsy,
independent, relentless freedom fighters. It’s amazing the impact committed individuals can make when they put their
mind to it.
I thank God there are still a few heroes left. Likewise, I thank God for Jerome Zeifman, the former Watergate chief
counsel, who, unlike Sam Dash, maintains one simple standard for impeachable offenses — one not colored by which
political party happens to be in charge of the White House at any given time.
I also thank God for all my colleagues at WorldNetDaily who have made this fantastic muckraking journey through
cyberspace possible and enjoyable.
Lastly, I thank God for my wife, Elizabeth, who stands by me no matter who my enemies are, and no matter what the cost
— who maintains her own passion for justice and feeds mine.
Who says there’s nothing to be thankful for?

LARRY KLAYMAN, MY HERO

People sometimes ask me who my heroes are. After all, I’d be
hard-pressed to name any contemporary politicians I trust or look to for
leadership and courage.
There is such a man. He’s not a politician. He is an activist. But he
is one who has integrity — enough to prevent him from blind loyalty to
party or ideology and keep him focused on principle.
His name is Larry Klayman and he founded the organization known as
Judicial Watch. (http://www.judicialwatch.org)
Some people have asked me if Larry is crazy, if he’s a zealot, or if
he has all of his oars in the water. If you don’t know Larry personally,
it might be easy to confuse him with a loose cannon. That’s because he
is fearless and relentless in the pursuit of justice. That’s a rare
commodity today in America. It wasn’t always like that. There were other
men like Larry early in American history. Their names were Washington,
Jefferson, Madison and Henry. They don’t make ‘em like that any more. At
least not many. Larry is an exception.
So, why am I telling you all about my friend and my attorney, Larry
Klayman?
A couple of reasons. I believe that in the next several weeks you
will see an intensification of the establishment political attacks on
him. I’m not sure what form they will take. They might be physical
attacks. They might be character assaults. All I can tell you is Larry
Klayman is a dangerous man if you are a corrupt politician. And this
country is a breeding ground of corrupt politicians.
The Democratic National Committee is investigating Larry the way they
once investigated me — running the Lexis-Nexis searches, collecting
dossiers and preparing a muckraking report for “journalists” eager to do
the bidding of partisan hatchet wielders.
Just know this: No matter what you hear, no matter what you read, no
matter what you see about Larry Klayman in the coming weeks and months,
let it not be filtered through any lens but the truth. And the truth is
Larry Klayman is an American hero.
I don’t make that statement lightly. I don’t make that statement
frequently. But I make it without any reservations about Larry Klayman.
One thing about these Clintonistas: When you expose them, they come
after you. There’s nothing subtle about the way this administration goes
after its enemies.
(http://www.wnd.com/1999/11/1475/print/)
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 42 of
631

Klayman’s been a target before, and he will be a target again. I
remember when they came after him the last time with an orchestrated
smear campaign in the media.
You can bet the White House’s team of “private investigators” (they
were called “plumbers” in another disgraced administration) dug up the
“dirt.”
Just a week or so ago, Clinton himself referenced Larry Klayman by
name as a source of irritation so great it forced him to rethink his
illegal deal to purchase a home with a loan that could only be
characterized as a bribe from a major political contributor.
Why are they coming after Larry now? Because, in many ways, Larry and
Judicial Watch represent the only game in town. The independent counsel
is gone. The Justice Department is thoroughly corrupt. The Congress is
hopelessly compromised and fearful. The media, by and large, are sitting
this one out.
Everyone is just waiting for Clinton’s term to expire — except Larry
Klayman.
And he’s got some important cases on his plate. He’s in the thick of
exposing virtually every major scandal involving the White House — and
some most people have never even heard about. He’ll be taking some
critical depositions in the coming weeks. And the Clinton forces are
preparing, as James Carville would say, ” for war.”
Don’t worry about Larry Klayman backing down in the face of such
pressures. They will only serve to embolden him. Larry Klayman will do
what is right — no matter who is involved. Klayman is a guy who never
shrinks from his standards of ethics and morality. He’s a man who looks
to no one but God for guidance and direction. He’s just the kind of
person we need in times like this.
Which is why I am also pleased to tell you the next piece of news: I
am happy to report that Judicial Watch’s Larry Klayman will be joining
WorldNetDaily as a regular weekly columnist next week. I am honored that
he would choose this forum to share his keen insights with the American
public. Look for his column each Tuesday.

LARRY KLAYMAN FOR U.S. SENATE

People sometimes ask me who my heroes are. After all, I’d be hard-pressed to name any contemporary politicians I trust
or look to for leadership and courage.
There is such a man. He’s not a politician. But he is running for office – the U.S. Senate – from the state of Florida.
His name is Larry Klayman and he founded the organization known as Judicial Watch (http://www.judicialwatch.org).
Larry Klayman is my hero because he has integrity – enough to prevent him from blind loyalty to party or ideology and
keep him focused on principle.
Some people have asked me if Larry is crazy, if he’s a zealot, or if he has all of his oars in the water. If you don’t know

Larry early in American history. Their names were Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Henry. They don’t make ‘em like
that any more. At least not many. Larry is an exception.
That’s why I am doing something very unusual for me today – I am formally and personally endorsing Larry Klayman in
his uphill bid for the U.S. Senate. The primary election is next Tuesday and you still have a chance to send him a
contribution (http://www.klaymansenate.com) or at least hold him up in your prayers in the next few days.
Why do I think it’s so important to elect Larry Klayman to the U.S. Senate?
Because Larry Klayman is an anti-establishment candidate. He is in nobody’s pocket. He’s a man of character and
principle. We need men like that in the U.S. Senate and elsewhere in government.
The Senate will be a stronger institution with his admission, and America will be a better nation with him in the Senate.
To be honest with you, I never thought I would see the day that Larry Klayman was actually a serious candidate for the
U.S. Senate. We all have an opportunity to make a real difference, a real impact on American government by getting him
elected.
Larry Klayman is not running for the U.S. Senate because he wants to participate in a debating society. He’s running
because he wants to get America back on track with its constitutional form of government. One of the cornerstones of
his campaign is a promise to fight to get the United States out of the United Nations.
When was the last time you heard of a Senate campaign built around that promise?
But that’s my friend Larry Klayman. He doesn’t listen to polls. He listens to his heart and his mind. And he listens to the
Constitution and the law of the land.
Larry Klayman is an American hero. I don’t make that statement lightly. I don’t make that statement frequently. But I
make it without any reservations about Larry Klayman.
Don’t worry about Larry Klayman backing down in the face of the pressures and temptations of the Beltway. Trust me.
They will only serve to embolden him. Larry Klayman will do what is right – no matter who is involved. Klayman is a guy
who never shrinks from his standards of ethics and morality. He’s a man who looks to no one but God for guidance and
direction. He’s just the kind of person we need in times like this.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5
09:23:09
Q Please state your name.
6
09:23:09
A Paul Joseph Orfanedes.
7
09:23:11
Q Mr. Orfanedes, when did you graduate from
8
09:23:14
law school?
9
09:23:16
A 1990.
10
09:23:17
Q Okay. You've been a lawyer continuously
11
09:23:20
since then?
12
09:23:21
A Mm-hmm.
13
09:23:21
Q Can you list for us just briefly your
14
09:23:23
professional background, where you've worked?
15
09:23:31
A Certainly. I started off working -- I was
16
09:23:35
a law clerk -- do you want -- does that include --
17
09:23:41
Q Everything you've done in your legal
18
09:23:42
capacity.
19
09:23:43
A I was a law clerk for a guy named Steve
20
09:23:47
Trattner while I was in law school. I don't
21
09:23:50
remember for how long. It was primarily trademark
22
09:23:54
work. I worked at a law clinic while I was at AU.

Merrill LAD
Page 8
1
09:24:02
We did a variety of different types of work. I was
2
09:24:04
a law clerk at a law firm called Connerton Ray &
3
09:24:09
Simon here in Washington. They hired me as an
4
09:24:13
attorney when I passed the bar.
5
09:24:14
Q And what date did you pass the bar?
6
09:24:16
A Oh, I don't remember.
7
09:24:17
Q What year was that?
8
09:24:18
A 1990. I worked there for a couple years,
9
09:24:25
and then I went to work at Klayman & Associates,
10
09:24:28
your firm, I believe it was September 1992. At some
11
09:24:31
point I became an employee of Judicial Watch. I
12
09:24:35
don't remember when. There was some overlap in my
13
09:24:39
capacity as an attorney for Klayman & Associates and
14
09:24:42
an attorney for Judicial Watch. At some point I
15
09:24:44
became a full-time attorney with Judicial Watch and
16
09:24:47
I've been there ever since.
17
09:24:48
Q I left Judicial Watch on September 19,
18
09:24:52
2003. Do you recollect that?
19
09:24:53
A Yes.
20
09:24:53
Q So at that point you'd been working with me
21
09:24:56
for about 11 years?
22
09:24:57
A Yes.

1
09:24:58
Q Okay. And during the time that you worked
2
09:25:01
with me, you found me to be reputable, correct?
3
09:25:06
A No.
4
09:25:06
Q Okay. In terms of -- why did you stay so
5
09:25:12
long working with me then?
6
09:25:13
A It was an interesting opportunity. I
7
09:25:16
enjoyed the work. I had a lot of freedom to do a
8
09:25:19
lot of work that I liked.
9
09:25:21
THE VIDEOGRAPHER: Excuse me. I'm getting
10
09:25:22
a little bit of interference maybe from someone's
11
09:25:25
phone.
12
09:25:25
MR. KRESS: Could be mine.
13
09:25:26
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
09:25:28
Q During that time period we tried some cases
15
09:25:31
together, correct?
16
09:25:32
A Yes.
17
09:25:32
Q Where did we try those cases together?
18
09:25:37
A Florida, Miami.
19
09:25:41
Q That was a case involving swimming pools?
20
09:25:44
A Pool fences. Yeah, it was a trademark
21
09:25:48
dispute, Lanham Act claim; Washington, D.C.;
22
09:25:54
Seattle. I don't remember other places, maybe

California.
2
09:25:59
Q And when was Judicial Watch started?
3
09:26:02
A July 29th, 1994.
4
09:26:06
Q And during that time we brought several
5
09:26:08
cases concerning the government, correct?
6
09:26:12
A Judicial Watch you mean?
7
09:26:13
Q Yes.
8
09:26:14
A Yes.
9
09:26:14
Q And we had developed a certain notoriety in
10
09:26:21
terms of what we were doing, particularly with
11
09:26:23
regard to the Clinton Administration, correct?
12
09:26:25
A Oh, I don't know about notoriety.
13
09:26:30
Q We became known?
14
09:26:32
A Yes.
15
09:26:36
Q And in the conservative community, we had a
16
09:26:38
very good reputation; did we not?
17
09:26:40
A I think it depends on who you talk to.
18
09:26:42
Q Well, if we didn't have a good reputation,
19
09:26:45
why did you stay with Judicial Watch?
20
09:26:47
A I said I enjoyed the work. I enjoyed some
21
09:26:49
of the people. I had a lot of freedom. It was a
22
09:26:52
decent -- it was a good choice for me.

Page 11

09:26:54
Q So you'll continue to work with people you
2
09:26:56
don't think are reputable if you enjoy the work?
3
09:27:00
A Can you ask me that one again?
4
09:27:02
Q You would continue to work with someone who
5
09:27:05
you didn't think was reputable if you enjoyed that
6
09:27:08
work that he was doing and you were doing?
7
09:27:09
A Oh, I think it depends on the
8
09:27:11
circumstances.
9
09:27:15
Q Would you work with a law firm that you
10
09:27:17
thought is unethical?
11
09:27:20
A No.
12
09:27:21
Q Would you work with a public interest group
13
09:27:24
that you thought was unethical?
14
09:27:25
A No.
15
09:27:27
Q And you're still working for Judicial
16
09:27:29
Watch, aren't you?
17
09:27:29
A Yes.
18
09:27:30
Q What's your position?
19
09:27:32
A I have several titles. I am the corporate
20
09:27:37
secretary. I'm the corporate treasurer. I'm the
21
09:27:40
director of litigation, the head of the legal
22
09:27:43
department, the chief lawyer for the organization,

09:27:47
and I'm a member of the Board of Directors.
2
09:27:50
Q Who else is -- is on the Board of
3
09:27:53
Directors?
4
09:27:53
A Tom Fitton and Chris Farrell.
5
09:27:57
Q Has there been anyone else that's been on
6
09:27:59
the Board of Directors since I left Judicial Watch
7
09:28:01
in 2003?
8
09:28:02
A No.
9
09:28:04
Q And what is Chris Farrell's position with
10
09:28:06
Judicial Watch?
11
09:28:07
A Well, I had just said he's on the Board of
12
09:28:10
Directors and he is the head of the research and
13
09:28:12
investigations department.
14
09:28:12
Q And what is Tom Fitton's position?
15
09:28:16
A He's on the Board of Directors and he's the
16
09:28:18
president of the organization.
17
09:28:19
Q Is there a chairman of the organization?
18
09:28:20
A No.
19
09:28:21
Q In fact, I was chairman; was I not?
20
09:28:23
A Well, it was a title that you gave
21
09:28:26
yourself. There was never an official position, I
22
09:28:29
believe, under the bylaws that was called chairman.

1
09:28:32
Q Did you ever refute the fact that I was
2
09:28:34
chairman when I was working with you?
3
09:28:36
A Well, like I said, it was a title that you
4
09:28:38
used. I don't think it was -- I don't believe that
5
09:28:41
there was an official position called chairman as
6
09:28:46
set forth in the bylaws of the organization.
7
09:28:49
Q So the three people that you just
8
09:28:51
mentioned, yourself, Chris Farrell, Tom Fitton,
9
09:28:54
you're the ones that make the decisions at Judicial
10
09:28:56
Watch, correct?
11
09:28:56
A Yes.
12
09:28:57
Q There's nobody else?
13
09:29:01
A Well, I think there are lots of people who
14
09:29:03
make lots of decisions. We --
15
09:29:07
Q I'm talking about in terms of the
16
09:29:08
governance of Judicial Watch.
17
09:29:09
A Yes, that would be the three of us.
18
09:29:13
Q Okay. Now, let's go back to the time of
19
09:29:18
the issue that we're here today about, okay, the
20
09:29:21
publication in Orly Taitz's web site, World's
21
09:29:30
Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site.
22
09:29:31
You're aware of that web site?

A No, I'm not.
2
09:29:34
Q Have you ever read that web site?
3
09:29:35
A I think I read it after you wrote
4
09:29:39
something -- my recollection is you sent us
5
09:29:42
something complaining about a comment that was
6
09:29:44
posted on the web site, and I looked at it then.
7
09:29:47
Q Okay. I'm going to show you what I'll ask
8
09:29:50
the court reporter to mark as Plaintiff's Exhibit 1.

09:31:32

09:31:38
communication you sent us complaining about a

09:31:40
posting on the web site.
4
09:31:43

09:31:49
A I don't know.

09:31:49
Q Did Mr. Farrell review it as well?
7
09:31:52
A I don't remember.
8
09:31:53
Q You had no discussion?
9
09:31:54

10
09:31:56
be attorney-client privilege or attorney work

12
09:31:59
Q The fact that you had a discussion would
13
09:32:04
not be attorney-client privilege.
14
09:32:06
A Of course it would be.
15
09:32:06
Q Not that you had a discussion. The content
16
09:32:08
of that discussion you could perhaps --
17
09:32:09
A Okay. Yes. You're right about that. If I
18
09:32:11
did have a discussion, and I don't recall any
19
09:32:13
specific discussions with Mr. Farrell or Mr. Fitton,
20
09:32:16
those discussions would have been privileged or
21
09:32:17
subject to attorney work product.
22
09:32:20
Q You had no discussions because you were

said about me, correct?

A I don't know what Ms. Ruffley said, if
4
09:32:28
anything, about you.
5
09:32:31
Q Oh, let's review it.
6
09:32:32
A Okay.
7
09:32:33
Q And this is the second posting, as counsel
8
09:32:35
said, and I'm reading from it. I'm looking at the

second page. "My yesterday's presentation to CCIR

Q It's the second page.
16
09:32:56
MR. KRESS: We have different documents.

09:32:57
That is not what this document says.

MR. KLAYMAN: Okay. Yeah, mark that as

7
09:33:33
A Yes, I see what you're referring to.

09:33:35
Q Okay. And in that article it states,

09:33:36
"Posted on "February 23, 2012."

Yesterday I gave a 2-hour presentation on
15
09:34:19
my platform as a candidate for the U.S. Senate. The
16
09:34:22
presentation was given to some 100 California voters
17
09:34:24
in the Women's club of Garden Grove. I was told
18
09:34:27
that a representative of the Judicial Watch drove
19
09:34:30
for over an hour from San Marino to hear me speak
20
09:34:34
and talk to me. I got a very warm reception. After
21
09:34:37
my presentation people stood up and applauded.
22

The member of the Judicial Watch approached

me and gave me her card. Her name is Constance
2
09:34:46
Ruffley and she is an office administrator for the
3
09:34:49
Judicial Watch in their Western Regional
4
09:34:51
Headquarters at 2540 Huntington drive, San Marino.
5
09:34:55
She told me that she used to work for the FBI and
6
09:34:58
that she worked for the Judicial Watch for many
7
09:35:00
years. She actually initiated the discussion about
8
09:35:02
Larry Klayman and told me that she had heard that he
9
09:35:04
is involved in birther cases.
10
09:35:07
I told her that this group,
11
09:35:08
article2superpac, was soliciting money and they sent
12
09:35:11
an e-mail and posted on their site an advertisement
13
09:35:14
on February 10th asking for $25,000, claiming that
14
09:35:18
they need to raise $25,000 in 96 hours, as the cases
15
09:35:22
in Florida and California need to be filed within a
16
09:35:25
week. I told her that it was a hard sell, they
17
09:35:28
wrote -- they wrote it is now or never, saying
18
09:35:33
finally Obama's team met their match, dissing 4
19
09:35:39
years of my tireless work in the process, and in the
20
09:35:42
end nothing was filed by Larry Klayman. It is not
21
09:35:44
clear what happened to all the money that was
22
09:35:47
raised, who got it.

09:35:49
Ms. Ruffley actually advised me that Larry
2
09:35:51
Klayman is not licensed in California. She told me
3
09:35:54
that he no longer works with the Judicial Watch and
4
09:35:56
that donors should know about the litigation in Ohio
5
09:35:59
where he was convicted just recently of not paying a
6
09:36:02
large amount in child support. She provided a lot

09:36:05
of other information. I will publish only what is

09:36:08
in the public record. I am not publishing anything
9
09:36:11
that is not in public record.

Okay. Do you see that?
11
09:36:15
A I see it on this document, yes.
12
09:36:17
Q Right. This is the document that you
13
09:36:18
reviewed at the time that you've just referenced,
14
09:36:21
correct?
15
09:36:21
A I believe I did review it.
16
09:36:23
Q Okay. And when you reviewed it, you
17
09:36:25
discussed it with Mr. Fitton, correct?
18
09:36:29
A I'm not getting into the substance of any
19
09:36:31
discussion I had with --
20
09:36:31
Q I'm asking whether you had a discussion
21
09:36:33
with Mr. Fitton.
22
09:36:34
A You tried to characterize the discussion.

Q How long have you been a lawyer?
2
09:36:37
A I think we've just been through that.
3
09:36:38
Q Okay. You know that the fact that you had
4
09:36:40
a discussion is not covered by attorney-client

privilege.
6
09:36:44
A I've acknowledged that I had a

discussion -- well, I don't remember what my -- I
8
09:36:50
don't believe I have a specific recollection of a
9
09:36:51
discussion with Mr. Fitton about this article.
10
09:36:54
Q During the Clinton years, the Clinton
11

people used to claim they had no specific

A Do you have a question for me?

09:37:10
Q Yeah, is that where you're getting the
20
09:37:11
phrase, "I have no specific recollection"? What
21
09:37:13
does no specific recollection mean? You have a

Q What -- if you don't have a specific

09:37:29
recollection, tell me your general recollection.
6
09:37:31
A I have a general recollection -- I -- I
7
09:37:34
don't even recall -- I'm saying I may have had a
8
09:37:37
discussion with him about it. I don't recall if I
9
09:37:40
had a discussion with him about it.

09:37:42
Q You didn't think this was very important,

09:37:44
did you?

A The substance of it, no.

09:37:57
Q You don't think it's important that Connie
14

Ruffley told Orly Taitz that I was convicted of a

crime?

hypotheticals.
2
09:38:16
Q Well, you -- that's permissible under the
3
09:38:17
rules of evidence. Now, if someone makes a
4
09:38:19
statement that a lawyer committed a crime, that's
5
09:38:22
significant; is it not?

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
9
09:38:25
Q No? You're aware that lawyers can lose
10
09:38:28
their bar license if they're convicted of a crime,
11
09:38:30
correct?
12
09:38:30
A Yes.

09:38:31
Q In fact do, correct?
14
09:38:32
A Sometimes.
15
09:38:33
Q And the crime that's being referenced here
16
09:38:36
is a felony; is it not?
17
09:38:37
A I don't know. I'm not a -- I'm not
18
09:38:39
familiar with Ohio law, but it would seem to be a
19
09:38:42
substantial offense.
20
09:38:43
Q So, therefore, it was a significant

09:38:45
statement?

Q Have you ever talked to Connie Ruffley

09:38:58
about it?
7
09:39:00
A I don't recall if I had a specific

this note complaining about the posting.
10

Q You realize you're under oath,

conversation I may have had with Connie about this

posting. I may have had a conversation --

09:39:51
Q Do you recall a conversation?

09:39:52
A I may have had a conversation about her. I
7
09:39:54
don't recall.
8
09:39:54
Q You and Orfanedes and Farrell got on a

09:39:58
conference call with her; did you not?

A I am Orfanedes.
11

Q Yeah, you and Mr. Farrell and Mr. Fitton
12
09:40:05
got on an a conference call?

remember that.
15

about this posting. I communicate with her fairly
18
09:40:14
regularly.

Q Did you see any e-mails to Ms. Ruffley at

09:40:29
this time?
5
09:40:29
A Not about this issue -- and actually not
6
09:40:33
generally. I tend not to save stuff on my computer,
7
09:40:36
but I did look, and there was nothing there.
8
09:40:39
Q Well, you realize that you can recall
9

09:40:45
anybody to do that?
11
09:40:45
A No, I did not.
12
09:40:51
Q Let's make it simple. Okay, what happened
13
09:40:54
after you read this at Judicial Watch? I'm not
14
09:40:58
trying to be provocative, but when you give me
15
09:41:01
answers that -- like the Clinton people gave me --
16
09:41:04
gave us at the time, then obviously it raises
17
09:41:06
questions as to whether you're telling me
18
09:41:09
everything. So tell me what you know happened after
19
09:41:11
you read this at Judicial Watch.

sending it to our lawyer, your letter, your
2
09:41:19
communication complaining about the posting. I
3
09:41:22
think I sent it to our attorney, and I believe he
4
09:41:24
wrote a response back to you.
5
09:41:28
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
6
09:41:28
Q What -- this was brought -- this posting
7
09:41:31
was brought to the attention of Mr. Fitton; was it
8
09:41:34
not?
9
09:41:34
A I don't know. I don't remember.
10
09:41:35
Q After this --
11
09:41:39
A Well, as you -- I don't know if you're -- I
12
09:41:43
don't -- is your question -- was it directed only to
13
09:41:46
Mr. Fitton or was it directed to Mr. Farrell and
14
09:41:48
Mr. Fitton and myself? I don't remember.
15
09:41:49
Q Any or all of them.
16
09:41:51
A I don't remember who it was directed to. I
17
09:41:53
don't really remember the communication itself.
18
09:41:58
Q Now, as the former -- as the founder -- I
19
09:42:01
was the founder of Judicial Watch, correct?
20
09:42:03
A You call yourself the founder, yes.
21
09:42:08
Q Were you the founder of Judicial Watch?
22
09:42:10
A I played a very substantial role in its

development and its success.
2
09:42:15
Q Are you claiming to be the founder of
3
09:42:17
Judicial Watch?
4
09:42:18
A I don't call myself the founder.
5
09:42:20
Q Okay. In nineteen ninety -- in July 29,
6
09:42:24
1994, was Mr. Fitton even with Judicial Watch?
7
09:42:26
A No, he wasn't.
8
09:42:27
Q Was there anyone with Judicial Watch
9
09:42:29
besides you and me?
10
09:42:30
A No.
11
09:42:30
Q Okay. So by deduction I was the founder,
12
09:42:36
correct?
13
09:42:37
A It's debatable.
14
09:42:38
Q I conceived of it, correct?
15
09:42:40
A It was your idea. The idea to have an
16
09:42:42
organization called Judicial Watch was your idea,
17
09:42:44
yes.
18
09:42:44
Q Okay. And I'm the one who authorized
19
09:42:47
preparation of Articles of Incorporation and
20
09:42:50
incorporation of the company, et cetera?
21
09:42:52
A I think so.
22
09:42:53
Q And you were working for me at the time at
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 77 of

09:42:55
Klayman law firm, correct?
2
09:42:57
A That's right.
3
09:42:57
Q You weren't working for Judicial Watch
4
09:42:59
then?
5
09:42:59
A I was not an employee of Judicial Watch,
6
09:43:01
but I did work for Judicial Watch.
7
09:43:03
Q Right. Okay. So given -- and over the
8
09:43:11
next many years up into 2003, September 19th, I
9
09:43:16
served as the head of Judicial Watch, correct?
10
09:43:21
A You were the -- you had different titles
11
09:43:23
over time. You called yourself chairman. I believe
12
09:43:28
after Tom Fitton came in we made him the president.
13
09:43:32
Q And I was the president before that,
14
09:43:34
correct?
15
09:43:34
A I think you were. I don't really remember.
16
09:43:36
Q Okay. So what I'm getting at,
17
09:43:39
Mr. Orfanedes, is that wasn't it of concern to you
18
09:43:42
that someone who had founded and run Judicial Watch
19
09:43:46
for almost 10 years was being accused of a crime?
20
09:43:55
A I had been aware that there was an arrest
21
09:43:58
warrant issued for you in the state of Ohio. I was
22
09:44:02
very concerned that that could bear negatively on
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 78 of

09:44:06
the organization. I don't remember when I became
2
09:44:09
aware of that arrest warrant. So that was of
3
09:44:17
concern to me.
4
09:44:17
Q How did you become aware of the arrest
5
09:44:19
warrant?
6
09:44:19
A I don't remember.
7
09:44:21
Q You and Mr. Fitton and Mr. Farrell made it
8
09:44:23
a point of tracking my activities for those 10
9
09:44:27
years, correct?
10
09:44:27
A No.
11
09:44:27
Q You were fixated on me, correct?
12
09:44:32
A No, I wouldn't say it that way. You have
13
09:44:38
filed multiple lawsuits against us, had other people
14
09:44:41
bring lawsuits against us, filed bar complaints, I
15
09:44:46
believe, or had been instrumental in the filing of
16
09:44:48
bar complaints against me. So your actions towards
17
09:44:54
Judicial Watch and Mr. Fitton and Mr. Farrell and I
18
09:44:59
took up a fair amount of our time in the 10 years
19
09:45:01
after you left Judicial Watch.
20
09:45:03
Q And as a result of these actions, which you
21
09:45:06
testify I took against you, you developed an animus
22
09:45:09
toward me, correct?

Q A dislike?
5
09:45:17
A I don't know. I don't know the best way to
6
09:45:21
characterize my thinking on that. It's really sort
7
09:45:25
of an opinion. I don't know how to characterize it.
8
09:45:29
Q You have to answer. There's no privilege
9
09:45:32
here.
10
09:45:33
A I guess I don't know how to answer.
11

Q No specific recollection?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
13

whether I dislike you, I believe --

A -- and I don't have a recollection or not
18
09:45:46
recollection about whether I like or dislike you.
19
09:45:48
Q You were concerned that Connie Ruffley
20
09:45:51
saying that I have been convicted of a crime could
21
09:45:54
reflect negatively on Judicial Watch at the time it
22
09:45:56
was made, correct?

11
09:46:10
Your question is convoluted and I don't understand
12
09:46:13
it.
13
09:46:14
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
09:46:14
Q No, it's very simple. Your concern at the
15
09:46:16
time that you read what I just read to you from Orly
16
09:46:21
Taitz's web site that the allegation -- or the
17
09:46:23
statement of the allegation that I had committed a
18
09:46:24
crime and was convicted of it could reflect
19
09:46:27
negatively on Judicial Watch?
20
09:46:38
A At some point I became aware that you had
21
09:46:40
been indicted in Ohio. I was concerned that that
22
09:46:44
could affect negatively on Judicial Watch.

09:46:49
Q You were aware that I was never convicted
2
09:46:51
of a crime?
3
09:46:53
A I don't -- I don't know if you've been
4
09:46:55
convicted of a crime or not, Larry.
5
09:47:00
Q You've taken the time to review the court
6
09:47:02
record in Ohio; have you not?
7
09:47:04
A Oh, subsequent to this, yes, I've looked at
8
09:47:08
the court record and I understand that you resolved
9
09:47:11
whatever -- you resolved the allegations in the
10
09:47:14
indictment.
11
09:47:17
Q All I'm getting at is, at the time that you
12
09:47:20
read this, you were concerned that this could
13
09:47:23
reflect on Judicial Watch. Simple question.
14
09:47:27
MR. KRESS: What's the this? I'm confused.
15
09:47:30
MR. KLAYMAN: The statement by Ms. Ruffley.
16
09:47:33
MR. KRESS: Okay, thank you.
17
09:47:35
THE WITNESS: Well, at the time I read
18
09:47:41
this, I bel- -- you had communicated -- you had sent
19
09:47:43
us something saying -- taking issue with this
20
09:47:46
posting. My concern was primarily with your
21
09:47:51
allegations -- your new allegations against Judicial
22
09:47:54
Watch and Ms. Ruffley.

09:48:00
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
2
09:48:00
Q And what were those allegations?
3
09:48:02
A I think you were alleging that she had
4
09:48:04
defamed you and that Judicial Watch had defamed you.
5
09:48:08
Q And that she was also interfering with my
6
09:48:10
business, correct?
7
09:48:11
A I don't remember that allegation.
8
09:48:14
Q Well, look at what she said, okay.
9
09:48:18
"Ms. Ruffley actually advised me that Larry Klayman
10
09:48:20
is not licensed in California, she told me that he
11
09:48:23
no longer works with the Judicial Watch and that
12
09:48:26
donors should know about litigation in Ohio, where
13
09:48:29
he was convicted just recently of not paying large
14
09:48:32
amount in child support."
15
09:48:35
So Ms. Ruffley was telling Orly Taitz,
16
09:48:38
based on what is stated here, please tell donors
17
09:48:41
that Larry Klayman's been convicted of a crime,
18
09:48:43
correct?
19
09:48:43
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
20
09:48:44
THE WITNESS: I don't know what, if
21
09:48:46
anything, Ms. Ruffley said to Ms. Taitz.

09:48:51
Q Let's look at what was just written here.
2
09:48:53
A Right.
3
09:48:53
Q Okay. You read that, correct?
4
09:48:55
A Yes. You read it out loud.
5
09:48:56
Q And you saw, that according to Orly Taitz,
6
09:49:00
that Ms. Ruffley was telling her that donors should
7
09:49:05
be informed that Larry Klayman was convicted of a
8
09:49:07
crime. That's what it says, right?
9
09:49:13
A That is what Ms. Taitz wrote in her
10
09:49:16
posting, yes, that's correct. I think that's
11
09:49:17
correct.
12
09:49:17
Q You're aware of the legal ramifications if
13
09:49:20
Ms. Ruffley was wrong of telling donors that Larry
14
09:49:24
Klayman was convicted of a crime; you were aware of
15
09:49:26
that, correct, based on your experience as a lawyer?
16
09:49:38
A I don't know what you mean by the
17
09:49:39
ramifications.
18
09:49:41
Q Are people going to want to contri- --
19
09:49:43
based on your experience, are people going to want
20
09:49:47
to contribute to somebody who's been convicted of a
21
09:49:49
crime?
22
09:49:49
A You know, there can be no such thing --

09:49:51
sometimes there's no such thing as bad publicity, so
2
09:49:54
I don't know what motivates people to donate.
3
09:49:56
Q You think being convicted of a crime is
4
09:49:59
good publicity?
5
09:50:00
A It probably has worked for some people.
6
09:50:02
Q Who has it worked for?
7
09:50:07
A G. Gordon Liddy.
8
09:50:13
Q What I'm getting at is that you were
9
09:50:15
concerned about what Orly Taitz had written,
10
09:50:19
correct?
11
09:50:19
MR. KRESS: I'm sorry. Did you say were or
12
09:50:22
were not?
13
09:50:22
MR. KLAYMAN: You were.
14
09:50:23
MR. KRESS: Okay.
15
09:50:26
THE WITNESS: I would say the focus of my
16
09:50:28
concern was that you were making yet another
17
09:50:30
allegation against Judicial Watch.
18
09:50:34
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19
09:50:34
Q How is what Orly Taitz wrote of what Connie
20
09:50:39
Ruffley told her an allegation of mine?
21
09:50:40
A Because you were writing to us complaining
22
09:50:45
about this posting and saying my -- it was --

09:50:54
it's -- to me it was yet another threat that you
2
09:50:57
were filing -- you were making against Judicial
3
09:51:00
Watch. You've done this repeatedly and consistently
4
09:51:03
since 2003.
5
09:51:06
Q Now, you are aware that Connie Ruffley was
6
09:51:16
at a meeting with Orly Taitz, as reflected in this
7
09:51:19
document, correct?
8
09:51:27
A I'm not -- it's just such a difficult
9
09:51:34
question the way you phrased it.
10
09:51:36
Q Phrase it the way you want to phrase it.
11
09:51:38
She was at the meeting, correct, you've discerned
12
09:51:42
that since you saw this publication?
13
09:51:44
A I was not aware at the time that you sent
14
09:51:46
your complaint that Ms. Ruffley had gone to a
15
09:51:48
meeting in Garden Grove.
16
09:51:49
Q But you became aware of that subsequent?
17
09:51:51
A I became aware of an allegation by you with
18
09:51:57
respect to this posting that Ms. Ruffley had done
19
09:52:00
that, and I believe, in the course of this
20
09:52:04
litigation, Ms. Ruffley had said she went to this
21
09:52:07
meeting.
22
09:52:08
Q And she went there as a representative of

Judicial Watch, correct?
2
09:52:13
A I don't know that. Like I said, I
3
09:52:17
didn't -- I was not aware that she had gone to the
4
09:52:19
meeting until I heard -- well, until there was this
5
09:52:29
posting, this posting that you were complaining
6
09:52:32
about.
7
09:52:33
Q You have subsequently, after you saw this
8
09:52:36
and I alerted you to it, asked Ms. Ruffley how --
9
09:52:42
what capacity she was at the meeting, correct?
10
09:52:44
A That would be subject to an attorney-client
11
09:52:46
privilege if any such communication took place.

Q After you reviewed what I had sent of what
20
09:54:53
Ms. Constance Ruffley was claimed to have said by
21
09:54:57
Ms. Taitz, you did learn that she was there as a
22
09:55:01
representative at that meeting of Judicial Watch,

correct?
2
09:55:09
A No.
3
09:55:10
Q You learned that she purported to go in her
4
09:55:15
capacity as a representative of Judicial Watch?
5
09:55:17
A I don't know that I learned that, and any
6
09:55:19
discussions I had with her about that would be
7
09:55:22
subject to an attorney-client privilege.
8
09:55:27
Q Are you disclaiming that she was there as a
9
09:55:28
representative of Judicial Watch?
10
09:55:31
A I don't know if we've claimed that or not
11
09:55:34
in our litigation.
12
09:55:35
Q I'm asking you. I'm not asking anyone
13
09:55:37
else. What are you claiming? You're the head of
14
09:55:43
the legal department of Judicial Watch.
15
09:55:44
MR. KRESS: If you know.
16
09:55:46
THE WITNESS: I can't answer that question.
17
09:55:47
I don't -- I don't know.
18
09:55:48
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19
09:55:48
Q You don't know one way or the other?
20
09:55:49
A I don't know what you're asking and I don't
21
09:55:51
know what -- I don't know how to answer it.
22
09:55:55
Q There was a table there at that event where

09:55:57
she was manning that table with literature about
2
09:56:01
Judicial Watch, correct?
3
09:56:02
A I don't know. I wasn't there.
4
09:56:05
Q But you did discuss this with her; did you
5
09:56:07
not?
6
09:56:08
A I may have discussed it with her, but,
7
09:56:10
again, any discussions I have would be subject to
8
09:56:13
attorney-client privilege.
9
09:56:14
Q You were concerned that statements were
10
09:56:16
being made on behalf of Judicial Watch at that
11
09:56:18
meeting, correct?
12
09:56:23
MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
13
09:56:25
You can answer.
14
09:56:25
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
09:56:26
Q You were concerned of the statements that
16
09:56:29
Ms. Taitz said that Constance Ruffley made to her
17
09:56:32
that were made at that meeting and that Ms. Ruffley
18
09:56:38
was an employee of Judicial Watch, correct?
19
09:56:40
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
20

question.

09:56:44
Q At the time that -- how long has
2
09:56:49
Ms. Ruffley been with Judicial Watch?
3
09:56:50
A I'm trying to remember that. I think maybe
4
09:56:54
1999, 2000 she started with us.
5
09:56:59
Q And since that time she's been the office
6
09:57:01
administrator of Judicial Watch's West Coast office?
7
09:57:04
A Yes.
8
09:57:05
Q And she's in a managerial position out
9
09:57:07
there; is she not?
10
09:57:08
A No.
11
09:57:09
Q Is there anyone else working with her
12
09:57:11
currently in the San Marino office?
13
09:57:13
A Ernie.
14
09:57:14
Q Ernie Norris?
15
09:57:17
A Mm-hmm.
16
09:57:17
Q Isn't Ernie Norris full time?
17
09:57:19
A No, he's not.
18
09:57:20
Q And at the time that this statement was
19
09:57:21
made to Ms. Taitz, what was Ms. -- Mr. Norris's
20
09:57:25
position with Judicial Watch in the West Coast
21
09:57:28
office?
22
09:57:28
A He's an attorney.

1
09:57:30
Q And how much time does he put in per
2
09:57:33
week --
3
09:57:34
A It depends on the time of year.
4
09:57:35
Q -- around that time.
5
09:57:40
A He's semi-retired. He has a cabin in
6
09:57:46
Wyoming and he tends to spend most of his time there
7
09:57:50
between maybe March and September, and from there he
8
09:57:56
works occasionally for Judicial Watch. The other
9
09:58:05
parts of the year, I would say late September, early
10
09:58:08
October through the end of March, he works 3 days a
11
09:58:12
week in the San Marino office.
12
09:58:15
Q In and around February 23rd, 2012, what was
13
09:58:17
he doing for Judicial Watch, if anything?
14
09:58:20
A I don't know what he was doing any
15
09:58:22
particular day, but if it was February in 2012, then
16
09:58:29
my guess is he would be -- he would have been on his
17
09:58:33
3-day-a-week schedule working in the San Marino
18
09:58:36
office.
19
09:58:37
Q Doing what?
20
09:58:37
A Oh, he does a variety of things. He fields
21
09:58:43
phone calls. He works with me on litigation.
22
09:58:49
People contact us with all kinds of problems and

issues and thoughts and ideas. You know, it

09:58:58
depends, the day-to-day operations of an office.
3
09:59:00
Q He's doing legal work, correct?
4
09:59:02
A Yes.
5
09:59:02
Q He's not doing administrative work,
6
09:59:04
correct?
7
09:59:05
A No. Connie provides that support for him.
8
09:59:08
Q He's not managing the office, is he,
9
09:59:12
particularly since he's part time?
10
09:59:13
A No, I wouldn't say he's the manager of the
11
09:59:15
office. He's in charge of the office when he's
12
09:59:18
there.
13
09:59:23
Q You keep telephone records?
14
09:59:25
A Do I?
15
09:59:25
Q Yeah.
16
09:59:26
A No. You mean like telephone logs?
17
09:59:30
Q Judicial Watch?
18
09:59:30
A No.
19
09:59:31
MR. KLAYMAN: Okay. I'm going to

09:59:33
request -- given in light of this testimony,
21
09:59:35
telephone records between Ms. Ruffley and

10:00:01
court reporter to mark as composite Exhibit -- well,
7
10:00:04
let's go to -- let's go to Exhibit 2 first.
8
10:00:09
MR. KRESS: This is Exhibit 2.
9
10:00:13
MR. KLAYMAN: The one we were just looking

at?

Q Showing you Exhibit 1, Exhibit 1 is the

10:00:33
subsequent posting on Orly Taitz's web site, World's
15
10:00:41
Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site,
16
10:00:41
correct?
17
10:00:41
A That's what it appears to be. I'm not
18
10:00:43
familiar with the web site personally.
19
10:00:45
Q And you saw that too, correct?
20
10:00:46
A I believe when we received your
21
10:00:48
communication complaining about the posting, that I
22
10:00:52
saw this subsequent posting. So my recollection is

Q Did you review -- you reviewed the comments
4
10:01:12
of these postings -- these two postings, correct,
5
10:01:14
Exhibits 1 and 2?
6
10:01:16
A Oh, I don't remember if I reviewed the

comments. Are there comments?
8
10:01:19
Q Yes.
9
10:01:22
A Oh, okay. I see there are some comments.
10
10:01:26
Okay. There are comments.
11
10:01:28
Q You reviewed them; did you not?

10:01:30
A I don't remember reviewing them.
13
10:01:33
Q You don't know one way or the other?

10:01:36
A I don't know that I've reviewed them.
15
10:01:38
Q You may have?
16
10:01:39
A I don't recall if I reviewed them or not,
17
10:01:42
so I'm not going to speculate as to whether I may
18
10:01:45
have.
19
10:01:45
Q Basically your whole approach here, this
20
10:01:47
was not something that really concerned you very
21
10:01:49
much?
22
10:01:49
A It concerned me that you were making yet

Judicial Watch in the other litigation that we have,

4
10:04:49
Q How many have I brought personally against
5
10:04:51
you?
6
10:04:51
A You brought the lawsuit against Judge
7
10:04:53
Kollar- -- you brought the lawsuit pending in front
8
10:04:54
of Judge Kollar-Kotelly. You sued us in Florida, I
9
10:05:00
believe, over something about you didn't like that
10
10:05:04
we referred to you as a former employee. I think
11
10:05:08
you --
12
10:05:08
Q What lawsuit's that?
13
10:05:09
A You know, it's hard to keep track of all
14
10:05:13
the threats and allegations and lawsuits that you've
15
10:05:15
brought against us.
16
10:05:16
Q Since you've claimed that there was one,
17
10:05:18
please cite what lawsuit you're talking about.
18
10:05:20
A I believe it was a false light invasion of
19
10:05:28
privacy case, and it was -- it was stayed for a
20
10:05:30
while and the Florida Supreme Court was considering
21
10:05:33
whether false light is a recognized concept in
22
10:05:35
Florida law. I think it's that one.

Florida, but I don't recall that one specifically.
4
10:05:42
There was a small claims lawsuit that you brought

10:05:44
against us here in D.C.
6
10:05:45
Q Stop there.
7
10:05:47
MR. KRESS: So you don't want him to

10:05:49
continue?
9
10:05:49

want to ask him about a question about that.

10:05:54
Q That was about getting copies of
13
10:05:57
drawings -- of Cortland drawings?
14
10:05:59
A Yeah. We had hearings in small claims
15
10:06:00
court, mediation and all that stuff.
16
10:06:00
Q Severance agreement said that you had to
17
10:06:02
let me make copies, didn't it?

10:06:06
A No, it didn't.

Q Go on.
20

represented her. You encouraged Peter Paul to file

10:06:20
a lawsuit against us, and then you represented him
4
10:06:22
in that. You brought a lawsuit against our lawyer
5
10:06:25
David Barmak in the context of your lawsuit against
6
10:06:28
us here in D.C. in front of Judge Kollar-Kotelly.
7
10:06:33
You actually sued Judge Kollar-Kotelly. I think
8
10:06:37
you've been instrumental in having bar complaints
9
10:06:39
filed against me in Maryland, D.C. You've had bar
10
10:06:45
complaints filed against Rich Driscoll. I don't

know.

13
10:06:52
guts, correct?
14
10:06:53
MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
15
10:06:54
THE WITNESS: I -- no, I don't hate your
16
10:06:57
guts, Larry. I don't hate anyone.

troubled soul, Larry.

Q Okay. When I left Judicial Watch, did you
2
10:07:10
not authorize Barmak to send a letter that I could
3
10:07:14
not even refer to myself as founder of Judicial
4
10:07:17
Watch?
5
10:07:17
A I don't remember that.
6
10:07:18
Q You don't remember that?
7
10:07:19
A No.
8
10:07:19
Q That that was trademark violation?
9
10:07:26
A I don't remember having Barmak send you a
10
10:07:31
letter about that, but there's an issue there.
11
10:07:33
Q To say I was founder is an issue?
12
10:07:35
A To repeatedly make use of the name
13
10:07:39
"Judicial Watch" in a way that causes confusion
14
10:07:43
among supporters and in the media raises a question
15
10:07:47
about trademark issue.
16
10:07:50
Q In fact, people -- some people are still
17
10:07:53
communicating with Judicial Watch thinking that I'm
18
10:07:55
still there, correct?
19
10:08:01
A I think some people are confused, yes.
20
10:08:04
Q So for that very reason, you were concerned
21
10:08:06
about what Connie Ruffley said about Larry Klayman,
22
10:08:09
correct, because people still think I'm associated

10:08:14
with Judicial Watch?
2
10:08:15
A I don't know what people think. I mean,
3
10:08:17
it's --
4
10:08:18
Q I asked you what you think. You're
5
10:08:19
concerned?
6
10:08:21
A I am concerned that your being indicted for
7
10:08:28
failure to pay child support could reflect
8
10:08:32
negatively on Judicial Watch.
9
10:08:34
Q And you would be concerned if someone said,
10
10:08:37
even worse, that I was convicted of that, correct?
11
10:08:42
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
12
10:08:43
THE WITNESS: I don't know that the concern
13
10:08:44
would be any greater or any less.
14
10:08:46
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
10:08:46
Q There's a difference between indictment and
16
10:08:48
conviction; is there not?
17
10:08:49
A There is.
18
10:08:50
Q You know what the difference is, correct?
19
10:08:51
A I know what the difference is.
20
10:08:53
Q What's the difference?
21
10:08:54
A An indictment is an allegation. A
22
10:08:56
conviction is a conviction, a final adjudication.

10:08:59
Q And in this country you're innocent until
2
10:09:01
proven guilty?
3
10:09:02
A In the criminal context.
4
10:09:04
Q Yes. Okay. So indictment doesn't mean
5
10:09:07
you're guilty of a crime?
6
10:09:08
A An indictment, you know, can be -- you can
7
10:09:13
have indictments -- you can indict someone in a
8
10:09:16
court of public opinion. Indictment can be a loose
9
10:09:20
phrase. It doesn't always have the technical
10
10:09:22
meaning that you seem to be imputing to it here.
11
10:09:26
Q Well, you just told me that you were aware
12
10:09:29
that I was indicted in the criminal justice system,
13
10:09:32
not in the court of public opinion, correct; you
14
10:09:35
were aware of that?
15
10:09:36
A I thought your question was about the word
16
10:09:38
"indictment" in general, and I was responding to
17
10:09:40
that.
18
10:09:40
Q No. I was asking you the question in the
19
10:09:43
context of being indicted in a criminal context as
20
10:09:45
opposed to being convicted in the criminal context.
21
10:09:48
There's a difference, correct?
22
10:09:50
A You sort of -- now I'm lost as to where we

are with all this back and forth.
2
10:09:54
Q You don't know the difference between being
3
10:09:58
indicted in a criminal court as opposed to being
4
10:10:00
convicted in a criminal court?
5
10:10:02
A Yes, I know what --
6
10:10:03
Q What's the difference?
7
10:10:04
A An indictment is an allegation. A
8
10:10:06
conviction is a final adjudication.
9
10:10:08
Q And for an indictment, you're innocent
10
10:10:11
until proven guilty, correct?
11
10:10:12
A In the criminal context, yes.
12
10:10:15
Q So if someone makes a statement as a
13
10:10:17
Judicial Watch employee, office administrator, that
14
10:10:21
a former head of Judicial Watch was convicted, that
15
10:10:24
has a serious affect, potential serious affect on
16
10:10:29
Judicial Watch if people still think he's there,
17
10:10:31
correct?
18
10:10:31
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
19

You can answer.

Q Well, you just testified that there --
2
10:10:38
A No, Larry, I'm not --
3
10:10:39
Q -- there is confusion --
4
10:10:41
A I'm not going to play these word games with
5
10:10:43
you. If you have an articulable intelligible
6
10:10:48
question --
7
10:10:48
Q Well, let's break it down.
8
10:10:49
A -- ask that and I'll be happy to answer it.
9
10:10:52
Q Let's break it down. You just testified
10
10:10:54
that there's confusion some people think --
11
10:10:55
supporters think and others that I'm still at
12
10:10:57
Judicial Watch, correct?
13
10:10:58
A I believe some people are confused about
14
10:11:00
that.
15
10:11:00
Q So, therefore, if a statement's being made
16
10:11:02
in a web site which goes all over the country and
17
10:11:05
internationally that Larry Klayman was convicted of
18
10:11:08
a crime, that reflects negatively on Judicial Watch;
19
10:11:11
does it not?

10:11:13
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
21
10:11:15
You can answer.

that, and I don't understand your question, so I

10:11:19
can't answer it.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4
10:11:20
Q Well, do your best. You don't want to
5
10:11:24
answer?
6
10:11:24
A I don't understand your question, Larry.
7
10:11:27
It was compound. It had multiple, inconsistent --
8
10:11:30
Q No, I broke it down. Go ahead finish.
9
10:11:34
A No. It had multiple --
10
10:11:34
Q Let me try again.
11
10:11:36
A -- inconsistent clauses and I don't
12
10:11:37
understand it.
13
10:11:38
Q I'm going to sit here until you understand
14
10:11:42
it. Okay, first question: There are people who
15
10:11:43
still believe -- there are people in -- out there
16
10:11:45
who follow the activities of Judicial Watch, the
17
10:11:49
supporters and others, that Larry Klayman is still
18
10:11:51
with Judicial Watch; there's confusion to that,
19
10:11:54
correct?
20
10:11:56
A Judicial Watch is in the news. You
21
10:12:02
sometimes say that you -- you make -- actually not
22
10:12:04
sometimes. You frequently make use of the words

"founder of Judicial Watch." I don't know if people
2
10:12:10
who contact us who are confused or who might think
3
10:12:15
you are with Judicial Watch are supporters of the
4
10:12:16
organization. I don't know what their thought
5
10:12:18
process is.
6
10:12:19
Q You've talked to some of them, haven't you?
7
10:12:21
A Generally, no. I don't speak to many.
8
10:12:26
Q But you have talked to some of them?
9
10:12:29
A This is an indefinite question. I don't --
10
10:12:32
I don't -- I talked -- there's lots of people in the
11
10:12:39
world. You asked me if I talk to some of them.
12
10:12:42
It's a nonsensical question.
13
10:12:44
Q Have you or haven't you?
14
10:12:46
A I don't know your question at this point.
15
10:12:48
Q Have you talked to some people who have
16
10:12:51
called in or written in that said, Larry Klayman's
17
10:12:55
still with Judicial Watch or asked if Larry
18
10:12:57
Klayman's still with Judicial Watch?
19
10:13:00
A I don't recall talking to anyone about
20
10:13:04
that, no, in years.
21
10:13:05
Q You are aware that Mr. Fitton has had those
22
10:13:07
discussions with individuals, correct?

discussions, correct?

10:13:18
they have had them and I don't -- I don't know that
6
10:13:20
they have.
7
10:13:24
MR. KLAYMAN: We'll be requesting
8
10:13:25
documentation to this effect. If I can get a
9
10:13:27
straight answer, I don't have to do it.
10
10:13:29
MR. KRESS: I think -- I think those are
11
10:13:31
very straight answers. You asked him if he knows if
12
10:13:34
people have asked Fitton and Farrell those questions
13
10:13:38
and he said he doesn't know.
14
10:13:39
MR. KLAYMAN: I'm asking about him too and
15
10:13:41
he doesn't know that either, so he claims, but then
16
10:13:45
he said he has conversations but he has no

recollection.

Q Let's try it again. People have called
3
10:14:02
into Judicial Watch or written into Judicial Watch
4
10:14:04
and asked if Larry Klayman is still there, correct?
5
10:14:06
MR. KRESS: Objection, asked and answered.
6
10:14:08
You can answer.
7
10:14:09
THE WITNESS: Yes -- well, I don't know. I
8
10:14:12
don't know how to characterize -- I have seen people
9
10:14:17
inquire of us. I don't know what their thinking is.
10
10:14:24
I don't know if they think you're still here or if
11
10:14:27
they think you are part of Judicial Watch, meaning I
12
10:14:31
don't know if someone who knew you were with
13
10:14:33
Judicial Watch and left is now contacting us or if
14
10:14:38
someone who wasn't aware of Judicial Watch or you

learned of Judicial Watch or you and contacted us

years since I've been gone?

10:15:01
A I believe that Judicial Watch says that you

10:15:03
are no longer with the organization.
3
10:15:04
Q Okay. Now, with regard to -- let's go back
4
10:15:16
to this letter, top of the second page at the end.
5
10:15:21
I'm writing to Mr. Driscoll. Rich, I am being
6
10:15:25
defamed by an employee and agent of Judicial Watch,
7
10:15:28
Connie Ruffley. Please call me to discuss. Thank
8
10:15:31
you, Larry.
9
10:15:33
Now, that's not a threat, is it?
10
10:15:35
A I think it is.
11
10:15:36
Q The fact that I'm being defamed is a
12
10:15:39
threat?
13
10:15:39
A It's in all caps, it's in bold. I mean,
14
10:15:39
you used the word "defamed" which is a legal word,
15
10:15:42
and you also have to take it in the context of the
16
10:15:44
history of the allegations that you've made against
17
10:15:46
the organization repeatedly over the last 10 years.
18
10:15:49
Q Let's go further.
19
10:15:50
A Yes, I think it is a threat.
20
10:15:52
Q Does defamation occur?
21
10:15:54
A Does it occur?
22
10:15:55
Q Yeah, does it occur in our society?

A Sure. There's a cause of action for

defamation.
3
10:16:00
Q Right. And is there not -- if in fact
4
10:16:08
Ms. Ruffley had defamed me, wouldn't you want to
5
10:16:10
correct it?
6
10:16:15
A Oh, Larry, that's a hypothetical question.
7
10:16:17
I'm not prepared to get into that. I don't --
8
10:16:20
Ms. Ruffley didn't defame you so --
9
10:16:22
Q Say I was convicted of a crime is not
10
10:16:25
defamation?
11
10:16:26
A Ms. Ruffley didn't -- I don't know what
12
10:16:28
Ms. Ruffley said, if anything.
13
10:16:30
Q But if he she had that, wouldn't that be --

remember. I had thought you contacted us, but maybe
7
10:17:04
I'm wrong. I'm sure I became aware of this at some
8
10:17:08
point, this allegation, so he must have contacted
9
10:17:10
us.
10
10:17:11
Q Let's go to the next one.
11
10:17:13
A Or you contacted us directly.
12
10:17:15
Q My response to Mr. Driscoll on February
13
10:17:18
23rd at 11:03 a.m. Let's talk after. In the
14
10:17:21
meantime, thanks for advising Judicial Watch and
15
10:17:24
Ruffley what I informed you about. I will explain
16
10:17:27
more when we talk. It's over the Obama citizenship
17
10:17:32
issue and Ruffley is out making false statements
18
10:17:35
about me and my personal life, et cetera. I have a
19
10:17:35
record of what was said and done. Best, Larry
20
10:17:38
Klayman.
21
10:17:38
Does that sound provocative, best, Larry
22
10:17:41
Klayman?

A "Ruffley is out making false statements
2
10:17:44
about me and my personal life," yes, that sounds
3
10:17:48
provocative, especially coming from you, someone who
4
10:17:50
has sued the organization repeatedly and been
5
10:17:52
instrumental in bringing multiple lawsuits against
6
10:17:55
the organization.
7
10:17:55
Q Well, you just -- you reviewed what Taitz
8
10:17:56
had written that Connie said, correct?
9
10:17:58
A Yes.
10
10:17:58
Q I didn't write that, correct?
11
10:18:00
A Yes, you did not write it.
12
10:18:01
Q Right. That was someone else?
13
10:18:03
A I assume so. I assume Taitz wrote it. I
14
10:18:05
don't know Taitz and I haven't spoken with her.
15
10:18:07
Q I didn't manufacture that document; you're
16
10:18:09
aware of that. Okay.
17
10:18:13
And then this is Richard Driscoll coming
18
10:18:18
back to me: I have no information regarding your
19
10:18:20
assertions and concede nothing. Rich Driscoll,
20
10:18:24
right?
21
10:18:24
A Yes.
22
10:18:25
Q Next page, I contact Driscoll --

MR. KRESS: I think you're on different
2
10:18:34
pages.

10:18:35
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4
10:18:36
Q No, back of it. It's in reverse. Okay.
5
10:18:44
Larry Klayman to Rich Driscoll, "Tied up now. Call
6
10:18:56
later."
7
10:18:57
A Oh, that's -- okay. I don't know. I'm
8
10:19:01
sort of confused as to how these e-mail chains are
9
10:19:03
to be read.
10
10:19:04
Q Look at the last page. It got a little bit
11
10:19:11
out of order.
12
10:19:12
A Yeah, Rich's call -- tied up now. Call
13
10:19:15
later was from the next day.
14
10:19:17
Q Right.
15
10:19:19
A Okay.
16
10:19:19
Q Look at the last page, okay. They're all
17
10:19:22
in sequence in terms of time so even if the page is
18
10:19:27
out. This is from me to Rich Driscoll. "Didn't
19
10:19:29
expect you as their counsel to concede anything.
20
10:19:32
But if you want to learn what is at issue call me.
21
10:19:35
Hopefully, matters can be resolved appropriately
22
10:19:38
without further harm. Best, Larry."

10:19:40
Do you see that?
2
10:19:41
A Uh-huh.
3
10:19:42
Q You saw this e-mail at the time I wrote it
4
10:19:44
to your counsel, didn't you?
5
10:19:46
A I don't remember -- I don't remember it
6
10:19:47
specifically. The issue came to my attention
7
10:19:49
somehow. I had thought that you had e-mailed us,
8
10:19:51
but this now makes me think that perhaps you
9
10:19:54
e-mailed our lawyer directly.
10
10:19:55
Q Let's just talk about what was said. I'm
11
10:19:58
asking, am I not, to resolve things appropriately.
12
10:20:01
There's no threat of suit there, is there?
13
10:20:03
A I think when you call up someone's lawyer
14
10:20:06
and you send an e-mail to someone's lawyer and you
15
10:20:07
say, I'm being defamed and false statements are
16
10:20:09
being made against me, there's a threat there.
17
10:20:12
Q You're trying to rectify the situation; are
18
10:20:15
you not?
19
10:20:15
A You asked me if I thought this was a threat
20
10:20:17
at some point. I said I think it's a threat, and I
21
10:20:19
continue to think it's a threat.
22
10:20:21
Q Well, let's read the e-mail of February 24,

2012, from Larry Klayman, myself, to Rich. "Is
2
10:20:31
there a time today when you are free to speak?"
3
10:20:33
A Mm-hmm.
4
10:20:33
Q Have you communicated with your clients,
5
10:20:36
Judicial Watch, Fitton, et al.? This matter is
6
10:20:39
serious and much damage has been done through Connie
7
10:20:43
Ruffley, Fitton, and others, individually on behalf
8
10:20:46
of Judicial Watch. And, this is not the only recent
9
10:20:48
instance where I have been defamed and held in a
10
10:20:51
false light in the last few months. I will explain
11
10:20:53
when we talk. The French have an expression; the
12
10:20:55
more things change, the more they remain the same.
13
10:20:55
While the french government just removed
14
10:20:59
the word "mademoiselle" from government documents,
15
10:21:02
this French proverb still applies -- I'm trying to
16
10:21:05
be funny -- particularly when it comes to Fitton and
17
10:21:08
company. Let me know. Rather than just filing
18
10:21:09
suit, I'm attempting to discuss having your clients
19
10:21:11
mitigate the damage and to try to resolve matters if
20
10:21:14
we can.
21
10:21:15
You see that, "sincerely, Larry Klayman"?
22
10:21:17
A Yes, I see it.

10:21:18
Q Taken on face value, I'm asking to resolve
2
10:21:21
it to mitigate it, that I don't want to file suit,
3
10:21:25
correct?
4
10:21:25
A You're threatening us.
5
10:21:26
Q How is that a threat?
6
10:21:27
A You're making allegations against us and
7
10:21:29
you're apparently demanding compensation. I think
8
10:21:31
that's a threat.
9
10:21:32
Q Where is there a demand for compensation?
10
10:21:34
A You're talking about rather than filing a
11
10:21:36
lawsuit, and you're talking about -- where do you
12
10:21:38
say --
13
10:21:42
Q Tell me where there's demand for
14
10:21:44
compensation.
15
10:21:45
A Much damage. The matter is serious and
16
10:21:47
much damage has been done. I mean, when lawyers
17
10:21:49
talk to each other, they're usually talking about
18
10:21:51
money in that regard.
19
10:21:52
Q When you make an allegation of someone's
20
10:21:56
convicted of a crime, based on your experience,
21
10:21:59
that's libel per se is it not?
22
10:22:03

THE WITNESS: I object to your form -- the
2
10:22:05
form and your characterization. I don't know. No
3
10:22:07
one has accused you of being -- Ms. Ruffley has not
4
10:22:11
alleged that you were convicted of anything. You
5
10:22:13
have alleged that Ms. Ruffley said that to
6
10:22:15
Ms. Taitz.
7
10:22:19
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8
10:22:19
Q So you did have a conversation with
9
10:22:22
Ms. Ruffley?
10
10:22:22
A No.
11
10:22:23
Q So how do you know she didn't say that?
12
10:22:30
MR. KRESS: If it calls for attorney-client
13
10:22:32
privilege, you can't answer it.
14
10:22:34
MR. KLAYMAN: You can't have it both ways,
15
10:22:36
Doug, okay. If it's attorney-client privilege, he
16
10:22:40
just waived it.
17
10:22:41
THE WITNESS: I don't --
18
10:22:41
MR. KRESS: No, he didn't.
19
10:22:42
THE WITNESS: I don't recall having any --
20
10:22:42
I don't specifically recall having any discussions
21
10:22:45
with Ms. Ruffley about this. I may have discussed
22
10:22:47
it with her. You are making an allegation that she

10:22:49
said certain things. You wrote threatening e-mails
2
10:22:52
to our lawyer. I perceive them as threats. If you
3
10:22:54
want to characterize them in some other way, that's
4
10:22:57
your prerogative.
5
10:22:58
Given the history between you and Judicial
6
10:23:02
Watch and all the various lawsuits and allegations
7
10:23:04
and threats and demands and claims and accusations
8
10:23:08
you've made against Judicial Watch over the years, I
9
10:23:10
considered this another threat.
10
10:23:12
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11
10:23:13
Q Well, is it a threat when Judicial Watch
12
10:23:16
had a $15,000 contribution from Louise Benson when I
13
10:23:21
was with Judicial Watch to build a building and then
14
10:23:23
never built a building and you had to give back her
15
10:23:27
money? Was that a threat?
16
10:23:29
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
17
10:23:30
THE WITNESS: I don't understand what
18
10:23:31
you're talking about, Larry.
19
10:23:32
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
20
10:23:33
Q Remember that we raised money -- we were
21
10:23:35
raising money shortly before I left to buy the
22
10:23:37
building that we were in at 501 School Street,

10:23:40
correct?
2
10:23:40
A I remember there was an -- there was a
3
10:23:41
building campaign. I remember there was a
4
10:23:43
contribution by Ms. Benson. I remember there were
5
10:23:46
false allegations you made on behalf of Ms. Benson
6
10:23:49
about her contribution and that we returned the
7
10:23:52
contribution.
8
10:23:54
Q If they were false, why'd you return the
9
10:23:56
contribution?
10
10:23:56
A To make it go away.
11
10:23:58
Q Because you were concerned about it?
12
10:24:00
A No, I was not concerned about it.
13
10:24:02
Q You were concerned about taking her money
14
10:24:04
under false pretenses, correct?
15
10:24:06
A I was concerned about more of the
16
10:24:07
organization's scarce time and resources being
17
10:24:11
wasted on your frivolous allegations, Larry.
18
10:24:13
Q Has Judicial Watch ever bought a building?
19
10:24:15
A No, Judicial Watch has not bought a
20
10:24:17
building, and we're not here to litigate that matter
21
10:24:20
that's pending in front of Judge Kollar-Kotelly.
22
10:24:24
Q I'm raising it in the state of Illinois.

10:24:28
A Past litigation that has already -- that
2
10:24:29
has already been finaled.
3
10:24:30
Q What I'm saying is you were concerned about
4
10:24:32
that allegation, that you'd taken money under false
5
10:24:35
pretenses, and therefore you gave Louise Benson her
6
10:24:38
money back.
7
10:24:39
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
8
10:24:39
THE WITNESS: No, I don't believe so at
9
10:24:41
all. I believe at the time we had decided to
10
10:24:43
make -- give the money back the -- the lawsuit in
11
10:24:44
which Ms. Benson had -- made you on behalf of
12
10:24:48
Ms. Benson had made the allegations had been over.
13
10:24:51
I think it was dismissed or dropped. I don't -- I
14
10:24:53
don't remember all the circumstances of it right
15
10:24:56
now, but I think that litigation had concluded.

10:24:59
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17
10:25:00
Q That's inaccurate but fine. Give me your
18
10:25:02
testimony. It's inaccurate. The --
19
10:25:05
A I could be wrong. I don't remember, but --
20
10:25:06
Q Well, you are wrong.

was concluded.
2
10:25:11
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3
10:25:11
Q So the use of the word "mitigate damage,"
4
10:25:14
is it not true that someone if they commit an act
5
10:25:16
which is tortious has a duty to mitigate; you're
6
10:25:21
aware of that as a lawyer?
7
10:25:22
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
8
10:25:23
THE WITNESS: No. I think the mitigation
9
10:25:25
applies to the person bringing the claim.
10
10:25:28
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11
10:25:28
Q Well, if I'm asking you to correct a false
12
10:25:31
statement, I am attempting to mitigate; am I not?
13
10:25:34
A I don't know what -- I think you're -- I
14
10:25:36
interpreted these e-mails as being yet more threats
15
10:25:38
from you, yet more distractions caused by your
16
10:25:43
baseless threats.
17
10:25:44
Q About 15 minutes ago you couldn't remember
18
10:25:46
whether you saw the e-mails. Now you're saying you
19
10:25:50
interpreted them to be threats. Which is it?
20
10:25:51
A Well, you just showed them to me.
21
10:25:54
Q No. You're -- you just testified, "I
22
10:25:56
interpreted." That's past tense, correct? Record

you asked -- I've read these and I characterized

them as being a threat.

10:26:11
Q All right. Let's go to the next one.
6
10:26:18

backward?

Putative claim for defamation, et cetera. "Dear
14
10:26:45
Mr. Klayman: This firm represents Judicial Watch
15
10:26:47
relating to the above-referenced matter. Through a
16
10:26:50
series of e-mails and again during our conversation
17
10:26:52
on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, you advanced vague
18
10:26:55
and unsupported allegations that Judicial Watch, its
19
10:26:58
President Tom Fitton and an employee are
20
10:27:01
participants in a conspiracy to defame and disparage
21
10:27:04
you based on the recent indictment handed down in
22

support these truly outrageous allegations.
2
10:27:10
As I stated to you during our conversation,
3
10:27:12
Judicial Watch did not authorize, make, or
4
10:27:14
participate in the making of any statements
5
10:27:16
regarding your indictment for criminal non-support.
6
10:27:18
For this reason, it's not necessary for Judicial
7
10:27:20
Watch to take any action to clarify or correct the
8
10:27:23
statements of others. Sincerely, Driscoll &
9
10:27:28
Seltzer, PLLC, Richard W. Driscoll." Copy to Paul
10
10:27:34
Orfanedes?
11
10:27:35
Now, you saw this letter at the time
12
10:27:36
Driscoll sent it, correct?
13
10:27:38
A Probably.
14
10:27:38
Q And you approved this letter by Driscoll,
15
10:27:40
correct?
16
10:27:40
A I don't remember that.
17
10:27:41
Q So you would have a lawyer send a letter on
18
10:27:43
behalf of Judicial Watch and yourself that you
19
10:27:45
didn't review and approve?
20
10:27:47
A Oh, it depends. I've worked with Rich for
21
10:27:50
quite a while so I trust him. I don't know that I
22
10:27:52
approved it.

10:27:53
Q Did you ever tell him that what he wrote
2
10:27:55
was incorrect?
3
10:27:56
A No, I did not, and I don't believe it is.
4
10:28:02
Q So the position of Judicial Watch is that
5
10:28:06
it had no obligation to correct or clarify or do
6
10:28:10
anything with regard to what Connie Ruffley told
7
10:28:13
Orly Taitz?
8
10:28:14
MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
9
10:28:15
THE WITNESS: You keep getting back to this
10
10:28:17
what Connie Ruffley told Orly Taitz, and I don't
11
10:28:20
know what Connie Ruffley told Orly Taitz and it's
12
10:28:21
not been established what Connie Ruffley told Orly
13
10:28:25
Taitz. So I object to the way you're trying to put
14
10:28:27
words into my mouth. I don't think this -- I think
15
10:28:31
this letter speaks for itself. It says, Judicial
16
10:28:33
Watch did not authorize, make or participate in
17
10:28:36
making of any statements, and therefore it's not
18
10:28:38
necessary for Judicial Watch to take any action.
19
10:28:40
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
20
10:28:40
Q So you're in fact disassociating yourself
21
10:28:44
from Constance Ruffley?
22
10:28:47
A No, not at all.

Q If you're -- you're disassociating yourself

10:28:55
from what Constance Ruffley said to Orly Taitz,
3
10:28:59
yourself meaning Judicial Watch?
4
10:29:01
A Larry, I think the issue in your lawsuit,
5
10:29:03
if I can characterize your -- your allegations, is
6
10:29:06
you're making an allegation about what Connie told
7
10:29:10
Orly. I don't know what Connie told Orly. I wasn't
8
10:29:15
there.
9
10:29:15
Q Are you saying that in fact I should go
10
10:29:18
back and make a motion with the court that we should
11
10:29:22
reinstitute Connie as a defendant, Connie Ruffley?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
10:29:26
Q Is that what you're saying?
15
10:29:28
A No, I don't --
16
10:29:28
Q That she's responsible for this, not you or
17
10:29:32
Judicial Watch or any of the other directors; are
18
10:29:34
you saying that?
19
10:29:36
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

THE WITNESS: That's not my testimony.

10:29:43
don't know what, if anything, Connie said.
4
10:29:46
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5
10:29:47
Q But if she said what she said --
6
10:29:48
A I'm not talking -- I'm not getting into
7
10:29:51
hypotheticals about what somebody might have done if
8
10:29:53
they did it. That's not the purpose of discovery.
9
10:29:55
Q Well, you want it both ways, don't you?
10
10:29:56
A No.
11
10:29:57
Q You want it, we had nothing to do with what
12
10:30:00
Connie Ruffley said, but then again since we don't
13
10:30:02
know what she said, you don't have an action against
14
10:30:04
Connie Ruffley either. That's your position, isn't
15
10:30:06
it?
16
10:30:07
A No.

Ruffley said, whatever she said?

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4
10:30:20
Q You are aware that Ms. Ruffley submitted an

10:30:22
affidavit in this case where she said she doesn't

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

10:30:27
THE WITNESS: I'm not sure that's -- her

affidavit says what it says.
10
10:30:31
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11
10:30:32
Q The affidavit doesn't disclaim that she had
12
10:30:34
a conversation with Orly Taitz, does it?
13
10:30:36
A I don't believe it does.
14
10:30:39
Q And it doesn't disclaim that she had a
15
10:30:41
conversation about me, Larry Klayman, with Orly
16
10:30:44
Taitz?
17
10:30:44
A I don't know. I'd have to review it.
18
10:30:45
Q You reviewed that affidavit before it was
19
10:30:48
submitted to the Court, did you not?
20
10:30:48
A Yes.
21
10:30:48
Q You are the chief legal officer of Judicial

10:30:52
statement was allegedly made, correct, about Larry
4
10:30:54
Klayman to Orly Taitz?
5
10:30:56
A Yes.
6
10:30:57
Q Okay. And that's why Mr. Driscoll's
7
10:31:01
communicating with you because it's your
8
10:31:03
responsibility at Judicial Watch to review legal
9
10:31:05
matters and to recommend action?
10
10:31:06
A I believe Mr. Driscoll was communicating
11
10:31:09
with you.
12
10:31:10
Q Well, he's copying you.
13
10:31:11
A Oh, okay. Is that what you're referring

10:31:13
to?
15
10:31:14
Q Yes.
16
10:31:14
A I wasn't sure.

10:31:15
Q This falls on your shoulders, you're the
18
10:31:17
chief legal officer, correct?
19
10:31:18
A He's informing me, he's sending me a copy
20
10:31:21
of his communication to you.
21
10:31:24
Q Just to make it crystal clear, you approved
22
10:31:27
what he said in this letter of March 5, 2012?

Q So you washed your -- you washed your hands

understand your question.

Q You didn't really care what, if anything,

10:31:51
Connie Ruffley said to Orly Taitz about Larry

10:31:54
Klayman?
16
10:31:54
A I read the posting and I didn't think it
17
10:31:57
was defamatory.
18
10:31:59
Q In the course of -- how many years have you
19
10:32:01
been a lawyer?
20
10:32:03
A You've asked me this several times today.
21
10:32:05
Q Well, I'm just trying lay the foundation.
22
10:32:08
A Do the math, Larry. I said 1990.

Q And you're aware of the law?

10:32:23
A Yep.
9
10:32:24
Q Okay. And you don't think -- you are aware
10
10:32:26
of the law of libel per se?
11
10:32:30
A Not all of it.
12
10:32:31
Q You are aware that libel per se is when you
13
10:32:35
accuse someone in a misleading or false way of being
14
10:32:39
convicted of a crime?
15
10:32:40
A I wouldn't agree with your definition, and
16
10:32:43
I don't think that's complete.
17
10:32:44
Q What's the definition?
18
10:32:45
A I'm not prepared to recite it right now.
19
10:32:48
Q I want to know what your state of mind was
20
10:32:51
when you approved Driscoll's letter.
21
10:32:53
A I think that's irrelevant.
22
10:32:56

when you approved Driscoll's letter.
2
10:33:01
A I've been working -- I've been a lawyer for
3
10:33:02
24 years. At the time Rich wrote this letter I said
4
10:33:05
I didn't recall approving it.
5
10:33:06
Q Subsequent to him writing the letter and
6
10:33:08
sending it to me, you told him to correct it?
7
10:33:11
A No. I think it's exactly right. I think
8
10:33:13
it's a completely accurate letter.
9
10:33:15
Q Have you asked Connie Ruffley if she made
10
10:33:19
this statement?
11
10:33:19
A That would be subject to attorney-client

privilege.

MR. KRESS: I'm going -- I'm going to
20
10:33:29
object, and it also depends if it's after the

lawsuit or if it's after -- well, really if it's

after -- at any point I think it is attorney-client

MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not asking about the

state of mind in responding to what he has perceived

as a threat, I think that could -- that's work

product, so I don't think he can answer that.
5
10:34:21
MR. KLAYMAN: No, that's an issue as to
6
10:34:23
whether or not there is a -- whether in his mind
7
10:34:26
there was a legal obligation to make that inquiry
8
10:34:29
and whether in Judicial Watch's venue there was an
9
10:34:35
obligation to make that inquiry, not what was said,

whether there was an obligation to do it, based on

his experience as a lawyer.

Q Let me ask it again. Someone -- if you

perceive that someone such as me is threatening
5
10:35:11
litigation if an alleged defamatory statement is not
6
10:35:16
corrected, in the ordinary course as the chief legal
7
10:35:19
officer of Judicial Watch, did you not have an
8
10:35:21
obligation to make an inquiry to see whether or not
9
10:35:24
this alleged statement was made?
10
10:35:26
MR. KRESS: I'm going to object. I think

you're getting into -- into work product, what his

17
10:35:45
especially if you're asking him with respect to the
18
10:35:48
facts of this case, in particular your claim. I
19
10:35:51
suppose it might be different if you're asking him
20
10:35:53
in general if he has to -- he responds to
21
10:35:58
litigation, but I think when you get into the facts
22
10:36:01
of this case, you're getting into his legal thought

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4
10:36:13
Q Judicial Watch is an organization which
5
10:36:16
prides itself on ethics, correct?
6
10:36:18
A Yeah.
7
10:36:18
Q It always has, correct?
8
10:36:20
A Mm-hmm.
9
10:36:21
Q It was founded to be an ethical watchdog,
10
10:36:25
correct?
11
10:36:29
A I don't really know what your thinking was.
12
10:36:31
I thought the idea was to watch the judiciary when
13
10:36:36
the original idea of forming an organization called
14
10:36:42
Judicial Watch. I thought that was the first idea.
15
10:36:43
Things morphed over time. At some point we began to
16
10:36:47
focus more on ethics.
17
10:36:49
Q Okay. Well, if someone makes a statement
18
10:36:52
that is not true that someone is convicted of a
19
10:36:57
crime, would it not be the ethical thing to do, if
20
10:37:01
that statement was made by a Judicial Watch
21
10:37:02
employee, to make an inquiry to correct it, see
22
10:37:06
whether it should be corrected?

10:37:07
A This is a hypothetical question. It's too
2
10:37:11
many variables. I don't understand at all.
3
10:37:11
Q Take -- take Larry Klayman --
4
10:37:13
A I can't answer that.
5
10:37:14
Q Take Larry Klayman out of the equation. If
6
10:37:17
someone's making a false allegation about someone
7
10:37:18
and they're an employee of Judicial Watch, is there
8
10:37:20
not an obligation to see whether or not that
9
10:37:22
happened to correct it?
10
10:37:23
A I don't know. I'm not -- I'm here as a
11
10:37:24
fact witness. If you'd ask me some questions I can
12
10:37:27
answer about your allegations in this lawsuit, I'm
13
10:37:29
happy to. I don't know what you're doing now. I
14
10:37:33
don't know what you've done throughout this
15
10:37:34
deposition. Please ask me some intelligible
16
10:37:39
questions. I'll try to answer them to the best of
17
10:37:42
my ability.
18
10:37:43
Q Mr. Orfanedes, you've appeared as counsel
19
10:37:45
in front of the Supreme Court; have you not?
20
10:37:47
A Yes, I have.
21
10:37:48
Q You're a highly intelligent person; are you
22
10:37:50
not?

10:37:51
A That's debatable.
2
10:37:52
Q You were with me for almost 10 years,
3
10:37:54
correct?
4
10:37:54
A More than that.
5
10:37:55
Q More than that, 14 years?
6
10:37:58
A 11.
7
10:37:59
Q 11, okay. Good. During the time that you
8
10:38:12
and I worked together, did I ever make a false
9
10:38:16
allegation about you?
10
10:38:16
A I think you did.
11
10:38:17
Q What was that? What was that?
12
10:38:20
A I don't know, but you did something. I
13
10:38:22
remember something. I don't remember the whole
14
10:38:23
context of it.
15
10:38:24
Q Was it in the context of Mr. Fitton?
16
10:38:32
A Oh, yeah, I mean was that before or after?
17
10:38:36
You used to -- you used to allege that we were
18
10:38:38
lovers. No. I don't remember when that was, and
19
10:38:41
we're not and never have been.
20
10:38:42
Q That created animus towards me; did it not?
21
10:38:48
A It was ridiculous, but that doesn't really
22
10:38:51
create animus. I mean, it's what you do, Larry.

at Judicial Watch?
4
10:38:56
A I don't remember.
5
10:38:56
Q Okay.
6
10:38:57
A I think --
7
10:38:58
Q Did I ever say that to you?
8
10:39:00
A I think it was in that period of time
9
10:39:02
when -- while we were nego- -- trying to negotiate
10
10:39:04
your severance and figure out, there was -- there
11
10:39:07
was what happened in May and we dispute what
12
10:39:09
happened in May, and then the negotiations --
13
10:39:12
Q Well, up to that point. Up to that point,
14
10:39:14
did I ever say anything negative about you?
15
10:39:17
A Oh, sure. I mean, I'm sure you did. I
16
10:39:19
don't know.
17
10:39:19
Q What do you know that I ever said negative
18
10:39:23
about you?
19
10:39:23
A We worked together for years. I mean, it's
20
10:39:24
just back and forth between two people, 11 years, of
21
10:39:30
course you did.
22
10:39:30
Q I might have criticized your work from time

to time.
2
10:39:32
A Yeah, that's a negative, sure.
3
10:39:34
Q Right. In a positive way, correct?
4
10:39:36
A It wasn't always positive but, you know,
5
10:39:38
when you work together with somebody for 11 years
6
10:39:41
there's ups and downs.
7
10:39:42
Q Okay. So if I'd done something really
8
10:39:44
terrible, you would have left, right?
9
10:39:46
A Yeah.
10
10:39:47
Q Okay. Judicial Watch deals with a lot of
11
10:40:03
lawsuits, correct; that's one of the things it does,
12
10:40:08
it files lawsuits?
13
10:40:08
A Mm-hmm.
14
10:40:09
Q And Connie Ruffley, you are aware that she
15
10:40:13
is knowledgeable about issues in the law, correct,
16
10:40:16
because of her work at Judicial Watch?
17
10:40:20
A She has a limited understanding. She's not
18
10:40:22
a lawyer, so she doesn't have all the -- she doesn't
19
10:40:26
have a complete understanding. Most lawyers don't
20
10:40:28
have a complete understanding, but --
21
10:40:30
Q She's worked with you and Ernie Norris and
22
10:40:33
others at Judicial Watch on legal matters?

A She provides admin support, yeah. She'll
2
10:40:44
file things at the courthouse. She'll put together
3
10:40:47
pleadings and copy pleadings and things like that,
4
10:40:50
but I mean, in terms of the substance of the legal
5
10:40:51
work, no. She doesn't -- she doesn't do that.
6
10:40:54
Q Has she ever discussed Orly Taitz with you?
7
10:40:58
MR. KRESS: And I'll just -- if it's
8
10:41:01
anything related to this lawsuit, I think that's
9
10:41:03
attorney-client privilege but --
10
10:41:04
MR. KLAYMAN: Discussing is not, Doug, and
11
10:41:06
you know that, okay? I'm not getting into the
12
10:41:08
substance. Did she ever discuss Orly Taitz with
13
10:41:13
you?
14
10:41:13
MR. KRESS: If it's -- well, I'll let him
15
10:41:16
answer but I think -- I still think if you're
16
10:41:18
talking about the issues in this lawsuit with a
17
10:41:21
lawyer then that's attorney-client privilege.
18
10:41:21
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19
10:41:23
Q I'm not asking for the substance, not yet.
20
10:41:25
I'm just asking did you ever discuss Orly Taitz with
21
10:41:29
Connie Ruffley?
22
10:41:29
A See, now I would say that's a substantive

question.

question too.
4
10:41:37
THE WITNESS: I cannot wear my lawyer hat
5
10:41:38
here, but to answer it, before this, you know,
6
10:41:39
however you want to call it -- I call it a threat
7
10:41:41
that you sent to our lawyer, before that arose, I
8
10:41:44
don't recall ever having discussed Orly Taitz with
9
10:41:47
her. I'm not even sure when I became aware of Orly
10
10:41:50
Taitz.
11
10:41:51
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
12
10:41:51
Q What do you know about Orly Taitz today?
13
10:41:54
A She's a lawyer and a dentist and she's
14
10:41:58
somewhere in -- is it Rancho Santa Margarita? And
15
10:42:02
she does a lot of these birther lawsuits -- or she
16
10:42:05
did in the past. I don't -- I don't know what she's
17
10:42:08
done over the last couple of years.
18
10:42:18
Q You are aware that I brought eligibility --
19
10:42:21
lawsuits challenging President Obama's eligibility
20
10:42:26
in Florida, correct?
21
10:42:33
A I think I became aware of that in the
22
10:42:34
course of this lawsuit.

10:42:36
Q And what do you know about it?
2
10:42:38
A I thought I saw, from reviewing your
3
10:42:42
answers to interrogatories the other day, that there
4
10:42:44
were three and that they've been dismissed, but
5
10:42:47
that's my vague understanding.
6
10:42:54
Q You are aware that Orly Taitz, one of her
7
10:42:59
primary areas of interest, is filing lawsuits
8
10:43:01
concerning the eligibility of President Obama?
9
10:43:04
A I know she used to do that. I don't know
10
10:43:06
what she's doing currently. I don't know that she's
11
10:43:09
practicing law currently.
12
10:43:18
Q During the time that I was at Judicial
13
10:43:20
Watch, we worked on a case together, did we not,
14
10:43:23
where we sued Fidel Castro over the shoot down of --
15
10:43:28
A Yes. Did we sue him personally or did we
16
10:43:31
sue Cuba?
17
10:43:31
Q Well, we sued --
18
10:43:33
A I don't remember. There was an issue
19
10:43:35
involving Cuba and Brothers to the Rescue.
20
10:43:38
Q Tell us a little bit about that lawsuit
21
10:43:40
situation.
22
10:43:41
A I don't remember. That was something that

10:43:43
Ed Forez (phonetic) worked on primarily I think, but
2
10:43:47
we represented José Basulto, founder of Brothers to
3
10:43:52
the Rescue and I don't remember who we sued as
4
10:43:54
defendants, but it was Cuban government officials
5
10:43:57
and/or the Cuban government. There were also some
6
10:44:01
other lawsuits against Cuba, though.
7
10:44:04
Q Which ones were they?
8
10:44:05
A There were some family --
9
10:44:05
Q Let's back up.
10
10:44:07
A -- members of prisoners --
11
10:44:08
Q Let's back up before we do that. Let's
12
10:44:10
back up before that. We did at Judicial Watch
13
10:44:11
obtain a $1.8 million verdict against Cuba, correct?
14
10:44:16
A Right. That Brothers to the Rescue
15
10:44:18
lawsuit, whoever the defendants were, we got a
16
10:44:20
default judgment. It was -- I don't remember the
17
10:44:23
exact amount. It was something over a million
18
10:44:25
dollars.
19
10:44:27
Q And it was for the shoot down of José
20
10:44:31
Basulto's brothers by Castro's Air Force, correct?
21
10:44:34
A Well, it was from that whole incident
22
10:44:36
involving the Cuban Air Force chasing the Brothers

to the Rescue. José Basulto was chased and fired
2
10:44:44
at, I believe. He wasn't shot down, his comrades
3
10:44:49
were shot down and I think they were killed during
4
10:44:52
that incident.
5
10:44:52
Q And our victory in that case obviously was
6
10:44:55
popular in the Cuban community, correct?
7
10:44:56
A I don't know. I know José Basulto was very
8
10:45:01
grateful for our work.
9
10:45:02
Q And it was very popular in the Miami
10
10:45:05
community --
11
10:45:05
A I don't --
12
10:45:05
Q -- which is largely Cuban, correct?
13
10:45:07
A I don't know.
14
10:45:08
Q You're not aware of the Cuban population of
15
10:45:10
Miami?
16
10:45:11
A I'm aware it's changing over time. I know
17
10:45:14
that Cuba -- or I know that whole south Florida area
18
10:45:18
has a mix of all sorts of people from all kinds of
19
10:45:20
different areas.
20
10:45:21
Q You're aware that while I was at Judicial
21
10:45:22
Watch, shortly before I left, that we took a -- that
22
10:45:25
I took a trip to Europe with victims of Castro?

10:45:35
parliament and the Italian parliament?
4
10:45:37
A I think that's right.
5
10:45:38
Q We lobbied to get the Europeans to take
6
10:45:42
stronger actions against Castro for persecuting
7
10:45:45
dissidents and reporters?
8
10:45:46
A I think that's right. I wasn't along, but
9
10:45:48
I did.
10
10:45:48
Q And that was very popular in the Cuban
11
10:45:51
community too; was it not?
12
10:45:52
A I don't know.
13
10:45:53
Q You're aware that shortly after 9/11 I took
14
10:45:56
a trip with other victims of Castro to Belgium to
15
10:45:59
file a criminal complaint against Castro there in
16
10:46:03
its court system?
17
10:46:04
A I kind of remember that. I don't --
18
10:46:06
Q And that was popular in the Miami community
19
10:46:09
too; was it not?
20
10:46:10
A I don't know.
21
10:46:11
Q You are aware that after I left Judicial
22
10:46:17

A After you left Judicial Watch?

10:46:28
Q Yes.
4
10:46:30
A I don't remember that. I thought -- I
5
10:46:32
thought there was something 9/11 related that
6
10:46:36
Judicial Watch filed involving Venezuela. I
7
10:46:41
don't -- I don't remember the details of it.

was at Judicial Watch that we intervened and
10
10:46:58
participated in the case Gore v. Bush over the 2000
11
10:47:03
elections in Florida?
12
10:47:08
A Oh, I know we did lots of public records
13
10:47:11
requests, and we had some litigation pending in
14
10:47:12
different county Circuit Courts in Florida trying to
15
10:47:16
get access to the ballots, and I remember that you
16
10:47:18
went up and you watched the proceedings in
17
10:47:21
Tallahassee.
18
10:47:23
Q You are aware that the judge allowed me to

10:47:28
Judicial Watch?

were there. I don't know what, if anything, the

2
10:47:34
Q That's a very famous case, isn't it, Gore
3
10:47:38
v. Bush, decided a Presidential election?
4
10:47:40
A I guess. I remember the judge telling you
5
10:47:42
to sit down once because you were on -- you would
6
10:47:45
always -- you'd always walk in front of the camera
7
10:47:47
so you could be wherever the camera would be. You
8
10:47:53
would be in front of the camera, and the judge told
9
10:47:55
you to sit down --
10
10:47:56
Q You're aware we invited that judge and gave
11
10:47:58
him an award after the event?
12
10:47:59
A Yes, that's right.
13
10:47:59
Q We went on a cruise --
14
10:48:02
A I don't remember.
15
10:48:02
Q -- when we no longer had litigation with
16
10:48:05
him?
17
10:48:05
A I don't remember that. I remember the
18
10:48:07
award, but I don't remember the cruise.
19
10:48:08
Q You're aware that I became friends with
20
10:48:10
that judge?
21
10:48:10
A No, I'm not aware of that.
22
10:48:11

10:48:14
A No. I remember the award. I don't
3
10:48:16
remember the cruise.
4
10:48:18
Q You remember the hearing that we had with
5
10:48:20
that judge, Judge Sanders Sauls where I asked him to
6
10:48:24
intervene and he said, Mr. Klayman I don't know of
7
10:48:27
any right to intervene, but I'll grant you a right
8
10:48:30
to hang around. Remember that?
9
10:48:31
A Oh, I remember -- I remember that language.
10
10:48:33
I don't -- you know, I don't remember the event, but
11
10:48:35
I recall the you have a right to hang around, and I
12
10:48:39
don't know where that -- I guess -- if you say it
13
10:48:41
came from Judge Sauls then that's fine.
14
10:48:44
Q And you're aware that he allowed me to
15
10:48:46
speak during that trial?
16
10:48:48
A No, I don't remember that he allowed you to
17
10:48:49
speak. Like I said, my recollection of the trial
18
10:48:52
was you always -- you wanted to be wherever the
19
10:48:54
camera was, so you would move around, and at one
20
10:48:56
point he said sit down Mr. Klayman, or something to
21
10:48:58
that effect.
22
10:48:58
Q Were you aware that I couldn't move around.

10:49:33
matter, particularly in Miami?

10:49:35
A Some people would say infamous.
14
10:49:37
Q What was infamous about it?
15
10:49:40
A A lot of people didn't like what the family
16
10:49:42
was trying to do.
17
10:49:42
Q You didn't like what the family was trying
18
10:49:45
to do?
19
10:49:45
A I said I a lot of people didn't.
20
10:49:47
Q How about you?
21
10:49:48
A I supported what the family was doing. I
22
10:49:50
worked very hard for the family.

Q You don't know what conservative is?

Q And he played a role in having Elian sent
4
10:50:48
back to Cuba, did he not? You're aware of that?
5
10:50:50
A He represented the father in whatever court
6
10:50:54
proceedings were going on, so --
7
10:50:54
Q The father wanted the child back in Cuba,

10:51:03

Q Now, Judicial Watch has authored a book

10:51:45
which came out a year or so ago called Corruption

Chronicles. You remember that?
8
10:51:50
A Mm-hmm.
9
10:51:51
Q Okay. And there's not one mention of my
10
10:51:52
name in that book, is there?
11
10:51:57
A I don't know. I don't -- I think you --
12
10:51:58
you wrote to us complaining about that so I don't
13
10:52:01
know. I didn't check.
14
10:52:01
Q Do you remember seeing my name in the book?
15
10:52:04
A Well, you know, you -- you tend to threaten
16
10:52:07
us when we mention your name and you threaten us
17
10:52:09
when we don't mention your name, so we're kind of --
18
10:52:12
it's a catch-22.

10:52:13
Q You're aware that you and Fitton and
20

10:52:27
THE WITNESS: I don't -- I don't think

10:52:28
that's a fair characterization, but I do get back to
4
10:52:30
my law- -- the lawsuit where you sued us because we
5
10:52:34
referred to you as a former employee. So, you know,
6
10:52:37
I don't know what we're supposed to do with you.
7
10:52:39
You sue us if we refer to you. You threaten to sue

us if we don't refer to you. It's just --

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
10

Q Farrell's?
2
10:56:09
A I don't know. I don't think so. I think,
3
10:56:16
oh, we have a whole process involving computers and
4
10:56:18
periodic, you know, reviews. I was having some
5
10:56:20
trouble loading some, you know, programs on mine.
6
10:56:22
They looked at it. They determined it was sort of
7
10:56:25
old and slow and that they would bring in another
8
10:56:27
one, and they did.

11:07:49
Q In and around February 23rd, 2012, what
19
11:07:51
kind of cell phone did you have?
20
11:07:56
A I've got one of these things. I don't know
21
11:08:00
if I had it back then (indicating). It's a black
22
11:08:04
box, not very technical.

1
11:08:06
Q Who makes it?
2
11:08:07
A It says Sprint on it. I don't know who
3
11:08:10
makes it.
4
11:08:10
Q So you were using -- Judicial Watch was
5
11:08:12
using Sprint at that time?
6
11:08:15
A I know I was, I guess. I don't -- I don't
7
11:08:18
remember when I got this.
8
11:08:19
Q And you said --
9
11:08:20
A I probably had this in 2012.
10
11:08:22
Q You send e-mails and texts off that phone,
11
11:08:25
correct?
12
11:08:27
A I'm not very -- I'm not -- I don't really
13
11:08:30
text very much.
14
11:08:31
Q You send e-mails off that phone?
15
11:08:36
A Not usually.
16
11:08:37
Q But sometimes?
17
11:08:39
A You know, I'm pretty bad with those
18
11:08:41
screens. I tend to use -- you know those little
19
11:08:44
screens, I tend to use my computer but it's linked
20
11:08:47
up to the computer anyway.
21
11:08:48
Q Are you saying -- are you saying you've
22
11:08:49
never sent an e-mail with Sprint service?

1
11:08:51
A I might have. I don't -- I'm not very good
2
11:08:55
at that. I hate those little screens, so I try to
3
11:08:59
communicate -- in e-mail I use my Outlook on my
4
11:09:02
computer instead, and I'm usually at my desk, so it
5
11:09:04
makes more sense to do that anyway.
6
11:09:06
Q Your computer in and around February 23rd
7
11:09:09
of 2012 had Outlook?
8
11:09:11
A Yeah, I think -- I think so.
9
11:09:13
Q So you have a backup system for e-mails?
10
11:09:23
Outlook has backup system to retain e-mails, does it
11
11:09:25
not?
12
11:09:26
A I don't know anything about that stuff.
13
11:09:27
Q You said you don't keep e-mails; is that
14
11:09:30
correct?
15
11:09:30
A Yes, I generally don't keep them.
16
11:09:32
Q But you have -- they would be kept on
17
11:09:34
Outlook, correct?
18
11:09:35
A No. If -- if something is significant, I
19
11:09:38
will tend to print it out and put it in the -- you
20
11:09:40
know, the relevant correspondence file. I don't
21
11:09:48
generally save e-mails for anything past, you know,
22
11:09:50
a month or 2 months unless, like I've just talked

1
11:09:54
about, I've printed it and put it in a
2
11:09:57
correspondence file. That's always been my practice
3
11:10:00
because I hate having all that stuff floating around
4
11:10:03
in an e-mail account.
5
11:10:04
Q Have you deleted from Outlook since
6
11:10:06
February 23rd, 2012?
7
11:10:08
A Oh, probably. I mean, that's my regular
8
11:10:10
practice is not to keep stuff in my --
9
11:10:14
Q So you deleted both from -- from the hard
10
11:10:16
drive and from Outlook?
11
11:10:18
A I don't know about the hard -- I don't know
12
11:10:20
what you mean by the hard drive. I don't know how
13
11:10:22
all that stuff works. All I know is I use -- I
14
11:10:26
guess it's Outlook. I get e-mail. If something is
15
11:10:29
significant, case related, I'll print it out, a lot
16
11:10:33
of the stuff otherwise I just delete without
17
11:10:35
printing out.
18
11:10:36
Q I'm going to ask you not to delete further
19
11:10:38
until we approach the court on getting access to
20
11:10:40
your computer and having looked at by a computer
21
11:10:46
expert your computers. You're on notice.
22
11:10:49
A Okay. I mean, just those are more Larry

Klayman threats.
2
11:10:52
Q Not threats. I'm just asking you not to do
3
11:10:55
it so you don't have a misunderstanding.
4
11:10:58
A When you tell someone you're on notice,
5
11:10:59
that's not a threat?
6
11:11:00
Q Yeah. That's called a notice.
7
11:11:03
A It's kind of like the please govern
8
11:11:05
yourselves accordingly letter that you sent with
9
11:11:12
Rich. It's just a notice. Okay.
10
11:11:12
Q You've never seen other lawyers use please
11
11:11:16
govern yourself accordingly?
12
11:11:18
A Very few. It's usually you, and it usually
13
11:11:22
makes me chuckle because it's so Larry.
14
11:11:25
Q Could be worse, right?
15
11:11:39
The -- you made reference to a lawsuit that
16
11:11:41
I brought on behalf of Peter Paul, correct?
17
11:11:43
A Yes.
18
11:11:44
Q In fact, I didn't bring that lawsuit, did
19
11:11:48
I?
20
11:11:49
A I think you were instrumental in
21
11:11:51
bringing -- in having Mr. Paul bring it.
22
11:11:53
Q But another law firm brought that lawsuit

Page 113
1
11:11:55
for --
2
11:11:55
A Right, the same law firm that was
3
11:11:57
representing you initially in your lawsuit against
4
11:12:00
Judicial Watch based in Pennsylvania sued us on
5
11:12:02
behalf of Mr. Paul, and then at some point they
6
11:12:06
withdrew and then you represented Mr. Paul.
7
11:12:09
Q You're aware at the time that Mr. Paul had
8
11:12:11
no money?
9
11:12:14
A Oh, I don't want to get into Mr. Paul and
10
11:12:18
his money. I don't --
11
11:12:19
Q You're aware that he was under house
12
11:12:21
arrest?
13
11:12:25
A Those are all loose terms, and I don't know
14
11:12:27
what the timing you're referring to.
15
11:12:29
Q And did not have means of making money at
16
11:12:34
that time, you're aware of that, right?
17
11:12:36
A Which time frame are you talking about? I
18
11:12:40
mean, I want to --
19
11:12:40
Q When you claim that I came into the case on
20
11:12:42
behalf of Mr. Paul.
21
11:12:44
A I believe at that point he had been
22
11:12:47
indicted for stock manipulation, stock fraud issue,

Page 114

11:12:52
and he had been extradited from Brazil and he was --
2
11:12:59
one of the conditions for him not being in jail was
3
11:13:01
that he was on -- staying in his apartment in North
4
11:13:05
Carolina on an ankle bracelet.
5
11:13:08
Q And had no means of income at that time?
6
11:13:12
A You know, that was a big source of dispute.
7
11:13:15
Q Were you aware or not?
8
11:13:19
A You know, I really -- I just don't want to
9
11:13:22
get into that because what I'm aware of came from
10
11:13:24
Mr. Paul in the context of an attorney-client
11
11:13:27
communication or in the context of an
12
11:13:31
attorney-client relationship, and I don't think it's
13
11:13:33
appropriate for me to have to testify about that.
14
11:13:35
Q Well, you raised it. That's why I'm
15
11:13:37
getting into it.
16
11:13:38
A No. I raised the idea that -- that you
17
11:13:39
represented Mr. Paul in a lawsuit against Judicial
18
11:13:42
Watch and that you were instrumental in causing
19
11:13:44
Mr. Paul to raise that lawsuit. I didn't -- I
20
11:13:46
didn't raise anything about Mr. Paul's sources of
21
11:13:48
income.
22
11:13:49
Q Well, you are aware that Judicial Watch

Page 115

11:13:51
agreed to represent Mr. Paul with regard to his
2
11:13:56
possible indictment and then indictment for
3
11:14:00
securities and bank fraud and that we promised to
4
11:14:05
provide representation for him, correct?
5
11:14:08
MR. KRESS: I'm not aware of the substance
6
11:14:11
of these -- what the answers are, but it appears to
7
11:14:15
be approaching attorney-client privileged
8
11:14:16
information. So I would just caution you that --
9
11:14:20
not to reveal attorney-client privilege, if you can.
10
11:14:22
THE WITNESS: I don't -- I'm not -- this is
11
11:14:25
all sort of unusual. I don't know how to get into
12
11:14:28
this stuff in a way that preserves any
13
11:14:30
attorney-client communications.
14
11:14:32
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
11:14:32
Q Well, you raised it, correct?
16
11:14:34
A No. I raised the idea that you were
17
11:14:36
instrumental in causing the former Judicial Watch
18
11:14:38
client to file a lawsuit against the organization,
19
11:14:40
and then you represented Mr. Paul in that lawsuit.
20
11:14:43
Q Well, and this raises the question --
21
11:14:47
MR. KRESS: But I don't think that allows
22
11:14:48
you to get into --

11:14:49
MR. KLAYMAN: Let me ask the question and
2
11:14:50
you'll see why, because he opened the door to this,
3
11:14:53
and --
4
11:14:53
THE WITNESS: No, I did not open the door
5
11:14:54
to anything.
6
11:14:55
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7
11:14:55
Q You opened the door to this. And in fact,
8
11:14:59
Judicial Watch, after I left, abandoned Mr. Paul and
9
11:15:00
he had no representation in the criminal proceeding,
10
11:15:02
correct?
11
11:15:02
MR. KRESS: I'm going to object. If you
12
11:15:06
know, I suppose you can answer -- I'm going to
13
11:15:09
object to the use of the word "abandoned."
14
11:15:14
THE WITNESS: Well, it's also completely
15
11:15:15
irrelevant to anything having to do with a 2012
16
11:15:19
alleged defamatory statement.
17
11:15:22
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
18
11:15:22
Q Well then, why did you raise it,
19
11:15:24
Mr. Orfanedes?
20
11:15:24
A You were -- I believe the whole thing came
21
11:15:26
up in the context of you were asking me how I
22
11:15:32
learned of the posting, and I referenced the threat

800-292-4789 www.merrillcorp.com/law
Merrill LAD
Page 117
1
11:15:34
you made to the organization. And then we got into
2
11:15:36
what's a threat, and then I was trying to articulate
3
11:15:39
that, given the number of lawsuits and actions that
4
11:15:43
you had brought and caused to be brought against the
5
11:15:45
organization and me and the other directors, when we
6
11:15:51
got the kind of correspondence -- when we got this
7
11:15:54
correspondence from you about the February 2012
8
11:16:00
matter, we interpreted it as yet another threat.
9
11:16:05
And I think you started asking me why it
10
11:16:07
was a threat, and I was trying to explain that you
11
11:16:12
had made threats against us in the past and filed
12
11:16:16
lawsuits against us.
13
11:16:16
Q Now, let's back up.
14
11:16:21
A Okay.
15
11:16:24
Q Whether or not what I was doing in
16
11:16:26
contacting Mr. Driscoll was a threat, you, Paul
17
11:16:33
Orfanedes as the legal officer of Judicial Watch and
18
11:16:35
Judicial Watch itself and as an ethics group, had an
19
11:16:40
obligation to correct anything that may have been
20
11:16:41
defamatory that was in the public record, correct?
21
11:16:44
A You know, I -- I don't know anything about
22
11:16:46
that, but I do know I reviewed the postings at some

800-292-4789 www.merrillcorp.com/law
Merrill LAD
Page 118
1
11:16:49
point after you contacted us, and I looked at both
2
11:16:52
of them because I believe Ms. Taitz's subsequent
3
11:16:58
posting of a few days later was up -- up being put
4
11:17:03
on the internet -- I looked at all of this. I
5
11:17:06
didn't see that there was anything defamatory. I
6
11:17:08
didn't see that there was anything harmful. I
7
11:17:13
didn't see that there was any issue, and I
8
11:17:15
interpreted all of this as yet another part of your
9
11:17:17
ongoing campaign of harassment against Judicial
10
11:17:20
Watch.
11
11:17:20
Q Okay, so saying publicly that someone's
12
11:17:23
convicted of a crime when he's not, there's nothing
13
11:17:27
harmful about that in your opinion, is there?
14
11:17:30
A I looked at the posting -- I don't know
15
11:17:34
where the posting is.
16
11:17:35
MR. KRESS: I think -- do you need to see
17
11:17:37
them?
18
11:17:37
THE WITNESS: No, but, I mean, the posting
19
11:17:39
says what it says. I think the posting also makes
20
11:17:42
clear that it contains other statements saying that
21
11:17:47
you were only indicted, and then Ms. Taitz posted
22
11:17:51
her subsequent, you know, posting 2 days later that

11:17:55
says she was wrong. You had only been indicted and
2
11:17:58
not convicted of this child support issue.
3
11:18:03
I mean, I looked at all that and I saw no
4
11:18:05
issue. And given your history of threats and
5
11:18:09
allegations, false allegations against the
6
11:18:13
organization and the number of lawsuits that you've
7
11:18:15
already filed against the organization, I saw this
8
11:18:18
whole matter that you were raising with Rich, you
9
11:18:22
were raising with Judicial Watch as just another of
10
11:18:25
the pattern of harassment and threats you've been
11
11:18:29
making against the organization for 10 years.
12
11:18:37
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
13
11:18:37
Q Let's take a look at Exhibit 2. Look at
14
11:19:03
the comments on Exhibit 2.

11:19:44
Q Look at the comments. Bloodless coup.
5
11:19:47
We're talking -- we're looking at page 4 into that
6
11:19:51
document. JW 0004. Okay?
7
11:19:54
A Okay.
8
11:19:55
Q Bloodless coup, February 23rd, 2012. "I
9
11:19:58
was initially excited about Larry Klayman, and
10
11:20:00
helped the news about him to go viral. Now I am
11
11:20:03
wondering about him and what his true motives might
12
11:20:05
be."
13
11:20:07
You understand that this is not a positive
14
11:20:09
remark with regard to me, correct?
15
11:20:12
A I don't know anything about this comment
16
11:20:13
other than it's this ink on a page.
17
11:20:17
Q So you think I made this up?
18
11:20:19
A I don't know that you didn't. I don't know
19
11:20:21
anything about it.
20
11:20:21
Q Well, you had an opportunity to review
21
11:20:25
this, did you not, at the time?

MR. KRESS: I think he --

11:20:31
MR. KRESS: I think his testimony was he
4
11:20:34
didn't know if he read the comments.
5
11:20:36
MR. KLAYMAN: Please don't give him
6
11:20:37
testimony.
7
11:20:37
THE WITNESS: Well, that -- that was my
8
11:20:38
testimony.
9
11:20:38
MR. KLAYMAN: Please don't coach him, okay?
10
11:20:41
MR. KRESS: I'm not coaching him. That's
11
11:20:45
another problem.
12
11:20:45
THE WITNESS: It's bush league threats and
13
11:20:48
intimidation. Maybe it worked in Philadelphia or

wherever -- wherever you practiced back in the day,

11:21:03
A -- you're still mad about what happened in
2
11:21:05
2003.
3
11:21:05
Q Look at the second one. "I smelled a rat
4
11:21:09
from the get-go. Asking for $25,000 for 2 lawsuits
5
11:21:13
sounded way out of the ballpark for me, so I did not
6
11:21:17
bite. Seemed like attempt to scam money on the
7
11:21:17
backs of people wanting to expose Obama, and nothing
8
11:21:22
more. Glad Orly stays on top of things like this
9
11:21:27
for us. WHERE DOES SHE FIND THE TIME?? Talk about
10
11:21:27
multi-tasking, I think Orly is the queen of that as

11:21:31
well!"
12

11:21:42
Q Yeah. I'm reading them to you.
14

15
11:21:46
Q Now, that's not a positive remark either,
16
11:21:49
is it?
17
11:21:49
A What's that?
18
11:21:51
Q What I just read you.
19
11:21:52
A Larry, if you want to ask me some questions
20
11:21:58
about the facts of this case, that's fine, but to
21
11:22:01
read me statements and ask -- that I have no idea
22
11:22:04
what their origin is, I don't know who these people

are, there's multiple levels of hearsay here and you
2
11:22:12
ask me if that's positive, you know, I don't know.
3
11:22:14
It's just -- it's silly. I'm not going to answer

11:22:16
that.
5
11:22:16
Q Well, it deals with your state of mind and
6
11:22:19
wanting to correct what Ms. Ruffley --
7
11:22:22
A No.
8
11:22:22
Q -- was reported to say, correct?
9
11:22:24
A No, it doesn't. I told you what my state
10
11:22:27
of mind was. I looked at all this. I saw no issue.
11
11:22:30
I figured this was -- I concluded this was yet
12
11:22:32
another part of your long campaign of harassment
13
11:22:35
against the organization.
14
11:22:51

15
11:23:03

16
11:23:09
MR. KRESS: I think that's -- he doesn't
17
11:23:12
have that in front of him, I don't think. He does

11:23:21
not have that in front of him.

10
11:28:44
Q Paragraph 4, posted by Orly Taitz
11
11:28:49
presumptively. I'm going to read this to you. "I
12
11:28:53
read the first post I made in regards to Mr. Klayman
13
11:28:56
and I saw that indeed there was an error. I wrote,
14
11:28:58
that Ms. Ruffley stated that Mr. Klayman was just
15
11:29:02
recently convicted of non payment of child support.
16
11:29:02
The link and the article right under it stated, that
17
11:29:08
he was indicted in 2 counts of criminal non-support,
18
11:29:09
that he owes $78,861.76 and arrignment (sic) was
19
11:29:13
scheduled for February 7, 2012. So, there was an
20
11:29:16
error. Mr. Klayman was indicted in the state of
21
11:29:21
Ohio on two counts of criminal non-support, but he
22
11:29:23
was not convicted yet. I am making this correction.

11:29:26
Ms. Ruffley made an error." Ms. Ruffley made an
2
11:29:30
error.
3
11:29:30
A That's what she says.
4
11:29:31
Q I didn't ask you a question. I'm just
5
11:29:34
reading it to you.
6
11:29:35
A Oh, I'm just emphasizing what it says.
7
11:29:38
Q It was also -- I will ask you some
8
11:29:39
questions. Let me finish.
9
11:29:40
A Okay.
10
11:29:40
Q It was also self evident in the February
11
11:29:43
23rd, 2012 article, as I posted the link right
12
11:29:46
underneath and the link stated, that he was indicted
13
11:29:49
and arraignment scheduled. The article was
14
11:29:53
published a couple of days ago on February 23 and I
15
11:29:56
corrected it to today on February 26, 2012. Are you
16
11:29:58
saying that Ms. Ruffley did not make an error?
17
11:30:02
A I'm saying that's what Ms. Taitz seems to
18
11:30:05
say here. I remember reading this posting back when
19
11:30:07
you read this -- you were complaining to Rich or you
20
11:30:11
brought the matter to our attention.
21
11:30:15
Q Are you saying that Ms. Ruffley, when she
22
11:30:17
made the purported statement to Ms. Taitz did not

11:30:20
make an error?
2
11:30:21
A I don't know what Ms. Ruffley said. All I
3
11:30:31
know is that Ms. Taitz posted something claiming
4
11:30:34
that Ms. Ruffley said that you had been convicted.
5
11:30:36
Q Did you make an effort --
6
11:30:37
A Now, later on in that article Ms. Taitz
7
11:30:40
also said you'd been indicted and that an
8
11:30:42
arrangement was scheduled. You could read that
9
11:30:45
whole posting as a whole as being ambiguous at best,
10
11:30:53
and then Ms. Taitz issued this retraction,
11
11:30:56
clarification, acknowledgment that there was an
12
11:30:58
error. She attributed the error to Connie, but I
13
11:31:02
don't know. I don't know what Connie said. The
14
11:31:04
error could have been in Ms. Taitz's perception of
15
11:31:07
what Connie said.
16
11:31:10
I don't know what happened. But I read the
17
11:31:12
whole posting exchange and I concluded there was
18
11:31:14
nothing to it, that it was part of the pattern of
19
11:31:19
harassment that you had engaged in against Judicial
20
11:31:22
Watch and its officers and directors and employees
21
11:31:24
since 2003.
22
11:31:24
Q Did you or Judicial Watch make an effort to

11:31:27
find out whether or not Connie Ruffley said that?
2
11:31:30
A I think we went over this. I may have
3
11:31:32
spoken with Connie, and anything she told me would
4
11:31:35
be subject to attorney-client privilege.
5
11:31:41
Q We're in litigation right now over this
6
11:31:43
issue, correct?
7
11:31:44
A Which issue is that?
8
11:31:45
Q Whether or not Connie Ruffley said these
9
11:31:47
matters on behalf of Judicial Watch, whether or not
10
11:31:50
she said I was convicted of a crime and that
11
11:31:52
information should be given to donors?
12
11:31:54
A Oh, there's multiple issues there, so
13
11:31:57
you've just comp- -- complicated your own question.
14
11:32:00
Q So it wasn't just a question of she's
15
11:32:02
saying that I should be -- excuse me. It just
16
11:32:06
wasn't a question of her saying I was convicted,
17
11:32:09
Connie Ruffley, of a crime but also that that
18
11:32:11
information should be provided to donors, correct?

MR. KRESS: Objection, form.

THE WITNESS: I -- I guess I didn't

11:32:17
of that, but if you're making an issue of that,

okay, you're making an issue of that. Whether

not. Like I said, I wasn't there.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5
11:32:28
Q You just said you can't testify to that
6
11:32:30
because of attorney-client privilege, but now you
7
11:32:32
say you don't know if she said that or not. Which
8
11:32:35
is it?
9
11:32:35
A I was not present at the meeting that
10
11:32:37
allegedly took place on February -- whenever it
11
11:32:40
was -- in Garden Grove, California. I'm not a

11:32:44
witness to that.

Q Let's take Larry Klayman out of the whole

equation, okay?

not, Mr. Orfanedes?
18
11:32:55
A I'm very serious.
19
11:32:56
Q You think this is a joke? You think it's a
20
11:32:59
joke to be accused of someone being accused of a
21
11:33:04
crime?
22
11:33:04

Q You think putting out into public domain

Q Well, you were laughing. I want to find
13
11:33:28
out whether you think that's funny.

11:33:29
A I was laughing at your absurd attempts to
15
11:33:32
be intimidating.
16
11:33:33
Q I haven't raised my voice once during this
17
11:33:35
deposition, have I?
18
11:33:36
A I think you did, yeah, a couple times.
19
11:33:38
Q Really? When was that?
20
11:33:40
A Earlier today.
21
11:33:41
Q Okay. We'll let the record speak for

itself, but I'm asking you the question --

A Mm-hmm.

Q -- you have a fiduciary duty to Judicial
5
11:33:52
Watch; do you not?
6
11:33:53
A I believe I do.
7
11:33:54
Q And if someone makes an allegation that
8
11:33:57
Judicial Watch is accusing someone of a crime
9
11:33:59
falsely, you have an obligation to investigate that;
10
11:34:01
do you not?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

13
11:34:04
Q As a director?
14
11:34:05
A No, I'm going to object. I don't -- I
15
11:34:07
don't know what all my obligations are within the
16
11:34:09
scope of my fiduciary duty if they would include
17
11:34:12
something like that, but even if it were, you know,
18
11:34:15
that's not the scenario. That's not the facts that
19
11:34:17
we're here to talk about today. We're not talking
20
11:34:20
about hypothetical cases. We're talking about this
21
11:34:22
case in which you claim, based on nothing more than
22
11:34:28
a posting that has been -- that itself is ambiguous,

Q I'm talking about your fiduciary duty --
4
11:34:41
A You want to ask questions about that
5
11:34:43
lawsuit, I'm happy to answer them.
6
11:34:44
Q I'm talking about your fiduciary duty to
7
11:34:47
Judicial Watch.
8
11:34:47
A In a hypothetical context, and I'm not
9
11:34:51
going to answer that.
10
11:34:52
Q I'm asking you in a specific context. If
11
11:34:54
one of Judicial Watch's employees makes a statement
12
11:34:57
which is false and it's in the public domain, to
13
11:34:59
protect Judicial Watch you have an opportunity to do
14
11:35:01
due diligence and find out whether that statement
15
11:35:02
was made, correct?
16
11:35:03
A Not necessarily. It depends. There's so
17
11:35:06
many circumstances, so many variables that could
18
11:35:09
exist in your hypothetical that I can't even answer
19
11:35:11
the question.
20
11:35:11
Q The difference is if it's Larry Klayman is
21
11:35:14
involved then you're not going to do it, correct?
22
11:35:15
A No. The difference is that that provides

additional facts such that a lawyer or a court
2
11:35:22
trying to reach a conclusion about a fiduciary
3
11:35:25
obligation has more on which it could base a
4
11:35:28
conclusion. Number one, that's not the purpose of
5
11:35:31
this deposition; number two, that's not the question
6
11:35:33
that you posed.
7
11:35:38
Q Let me ask it again.
8
11:35:40
A You can keep asking the same question. I
9
11:35:42
suggest your question is a bad question and you
10
11:35:45
should just move on to something that's relevant.
11
11:35:47
Q You are -- you are a member of the Board of
12
11:35:49
Directors and you're the chief legal officer of
13
11:35:51
Judicial Watch, correct?
14
11:35:51
A Mm-hmm.
15
11:35:52
Q Okay. You have a fiduciary obligation to
16
11:35:57
Judicial Watch, do you not, to find out whether or
17
11:36:00
not Connie Ruffley made that statement about Larry
18
11:36:03
Klayman, that he was convicted of a crime and the
19
11:36:05
information should be given to donors?

Judicial Watch, you have that obligation, correct?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
3
11:36:14
THE WITNESS: I don't know that I'll say
4
11:36:15
that I have that. I don't know that I have a
5
11:36:18
fiduciary obligation in those circumstances. I
6
11:36:21
don't know, especially when I have something in
7
11:36:24
front of me, the postings, that make clear to me
8
11:36:28
that it's ambiguous at best what was said, if
9
11:36:34
anything.
10
11:36:34
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11
11:36:34
Q Is there anything ambiguous about the
12
11:36:36
word "convicted"?
13
11:36:38
A Well, I think what you're ignoring is the
14
11:36:40
fact that -- I don't know how many paragraphs below,
15
11:36:47
but it is not very many, one -- actually, it's --
16
11:36:57
well, I don't know. I would say the second
17
11:37:00
paragraph below it, "Larry Klayman was indicted on
18
11:37:02
two counts of criminal nonsupport," blah, blah,
19
11:37:06
blah. Arraignment is scheduled for February 7th.
20
11:37:10
You know, I don't know. To me that's
21
11:37:12
saying you were convicted -- I'm sorry. See, I
22
11:37:15
misspoke. It's easy to misspeak as well. It says

that you were indicted, and then there's other stuff

11:37:26
goes further on about a bar complaint against you.
3
11:37:29
You know, this is -- raises a host of different --
4
11:37:33
there's a number of factual statements about that --
5
11:37:36
about you here.
6
11:37:36
Q Has Ms. Ruffley been -- have you
7
11:37:39
communicated with her and tell her to be careful in
8
11:37:42
the future what she says about individuals?
9
11:37:43
A Any such communications would be governed
10
11:37:45
by attorney-client privilege and would be subject to
11
11:37:49
a litigation privilege as well.
12
11:37:50
Q Was she disciplined over these alleged

11:37:53
statements?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

That's a personnel matter too. I don't know -- I

11:38:03
don't know what to do.

statements?

A No.

Q Was she cautioned not to make statements

like that in the future?

product, if that's -- if it's anything in --
15
11:40:23
MR. KLAYMAN: It's the same question. It's
16
11:40:25
just a corollary of it.
17
11:40:27
MR. KRESS: Is it -- I don't know if it's
18
11:40:30
really a corollary, if you're getting into
19
11:40:32
communications that are related to the litigation.
20
11:40:40
If it's related -- because I think there
21
11:40:45
were no communications until after there's already

11:40:49
what we've called a threat of a lawsuit, and so I

11:41:29
Do we need to talk about this one too?

not to answer, though, are you?

(The reporter read the record as

3
11:43:36
THE WITNESS: My answer would be as
4
11:43:40
follows: First of all, you didn't use the word
5
11:43:42
"alleged" in your question. I mean, we dispute that
6
11:43:45
she made the statement that is attributed to her by
7
11:43:48
Ms. Taitz. I don't recall if she was cautioned in
8
11:43:51
any manner that you suggest. Generally, I would
9
11:43:57
tell employees to be very careful about any
10
11:44:00
statements or anything they say about you because
11
11:44:02
you have this pattern and history of bringing --
12
11:44:05
making threats and bringing lawsuits against the
13
11:44:09
organization.
14
11:44:12
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
11:44:12
Q So all of a sudden, in the context of that
16
11:44:14
question, you're willing to testify hypothetically,
17
11:44:18
as you put it?
18
11:44:18
A No. I'm trying to answer the question that
19
11:44:21
I would generally caution employees about saying
20
11:44:23
anything about you in public because you have such a
21
11:44:27
history of bringing threats and lawsuits and
22
11:44:31
baseless allegations against Judicial Watch and its

11:44:34
employees.
2
11:44:35
Q So your testimony is you don't remember
3
11:44:37
whether or not you told -- you cautioned her not to
4
11:44:40
make statements like the alleged statements in the
5
11:44:42
future?
6
11:44:43
A Yeah, I don't remember that and --
7
11:44:46
Q Okay.
8
11:44:47
A I don't remember that specifically.
9
11:44:48
Q Are you serving as the attorney for
10
11:44:55
Ms. Ruffley in this proceeding?
11
11:44:56
A No. Mr. Kress is.
12
11:44:58
Q So how can you claim attorney-client
13
11:45:00
privilege on conversations you had with Ms. Ruffley?
14
11:45:04
A Well, I'm the -- I'm the chief lawyer for
15
11:45:06
Judicial Watch.
16
11:45:06
Q So you're claiming that you represent her
17
11:45:09
in this case?
18
11:45:13
A I represent Judicial Watch in an in-house
19
11:45:15
capacity, yes. She's an employee of Judicial Watch
20
11:45:17
so, yes.
21
11:45:17
Q So anything that you discuss with anyone
22
11:45:19
because you're a lawyer is -- is subject to

11:45:21
attorney-client privilege?
2
11:45:23
A I don't think it's quite -- that's not a
3
11:45:25
fair articulation of the privilege, but I think I'm
4
11:45:28
invoking the privilege to its full extent.
5
11:45:31
Q So, given the operative facts of this case,
6
11:45:35
because you're a lawyer you don't have to discuss
7
11:45:37
what went on with Judicial Watch and Connie Ruffley
8
11:45:39
and Larry Klayman?
9
11:45:41
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
10
11:45:42
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11
11:45:42
Q That's your position?
12
11:45:43
A My position is communications I had with
13
11:45:48
Judicial Watch employees about this matter are
14
11:45:50
subject to attorney-client privilege because I'm
15
11:45:56
chief in-house counsel to Judicial Watch.
16
11:45:57
Q You were the point person, in effect, in
17
11:46:03
dealing with this issue with regard to Rich
18
11:46:06
Driscoll, Larry Klayman, and Connie Ruffley,
19
11:46:08
correct?
20
11:46:08
A I'm the point person within Judicial Watch
21
11:46:10
for dealing with all legal matters concerning the
22
11:46:12
organization.

Q Did Fitton get into a discussion with

3
11:46:20
A I don't know.
4
11:46:23
Q Did Farrell?
5
11:46:26
A I would doubt it.
6
11:46:29
Q So it all rested on your shoulders,
7
11:46:31
correct?
8
11:46:31
A Well, it's my job.
9
11:46:33
Q Okay. So, therefore, we'll never been able
10
11:46:36
to find out what went on between Ruffley and you
11
11:46:39
with regard to these statements that were made
12
11:46:41
concerning Larry Klayman, because no one else can
13
11:46:45
testify to it and you're invoking privilege?
14
11:46:49
MR. KRESS: I'm going to object to the
15
11:46:51
form.
16
11:46:51

11:46:52
Q Yeah.
19

MR. KRESS: I'm not sure what the question
20
11:46:56
is.

THE WITNESS: I don't know -- I don't know
22
11:46:57
if that's a question.

attorney and the rest of them don't know anything.
4
11:47:02
A I've been testifying for hours now.
5
11:47:11
Q Based on your position at Judicial Watch,
6
11:47:13
do you not believe that Judicial Watch had a duty to
7
11:47:16
mitigate any damage to Larry Klayman as a result of
8
11:47:19
these alleged statements?
9
11:47:20
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
10
11:47:22
THE WITNESS: I think that's a legal
11
11:47:23
conclusion, and I would disagree with your legal
12
11:47:26
conclusion. I think it's the plaintiff's burden to
13
11:47:28
mitigate damage.

11:47:29
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
11:47:29
Q If a plaintiff is defamed, it's his burden
16
11:47:32
to mitigate the damage?
17
11:47:34
A Usually. Isn't mitigation something that
18
11:47:36
weighs against the plaintiff?
19
11:47:43
Q In a defamation case, is that what you're
20
11:47:44
saying?
21
11:47:45
A I think so. I mean, that's mitigation.
22
11:47:47
Q Did you consult the law before you decided

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4
11:47:53

too.
6
11:47:55
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7
11:47:58
Q Did you?
8
11:48:00
A Of course I consulted the law. I relied on
9
11:48:02
my 22 years of experience at that point because it
10
11:48:06
was 2012.
11
11:48:07
Q And what -- what did you determine in
12
11:48:11
consulting the law and your 22 years of experience?
13
11:48:14
A That would be attorney work product.
14
11:48:26
MR. KLAYMAN: I have no further questions
15
11:48:27
at this time. I'm going to leave the deposition
16
11:48:29
open subject to hopefully obtaining documentation.
17
11:48:33
Hopefully, Doug, to your consulting with your client
18
11:48:36
and reconsidering whether he should be answering
19
11:48:38
some of these questions so we don't have to go to
20
11:48:40
the court and waste unnecessary time and resource.
21
11:48:42
MR. KRESS: I -- I think that we have
22

product. We've produced the documents we have in
3
11:48:50
response to -- and I've stated objections to the
4
11:48:54
document requests, and those speak for themselves.
5
11:48:59
I don't think I need to restate them. So we can --
6
11:49:03
I believe we have fully -- more than fully complied
7
11:49:06
with our obligations in responding to documents.
8
11:49:14
And the document requests, in effect,
9
11:49:22
came -- they did not give us the 30 days to respond.
10
11:49:26
They gave us, I think -- I don't know -- less
11
11:49:28
than -- a couple weeks, 2, 3 weeks. So we in good
12
11:49:31
faith produced those documents, and I think we
13
11:49:33
exceeded our obligations in producing documents to
14
11:49:37
you, and for those reasons and the other reasons
15
11:49:43
stated in our objections.

11:49:44
MR. KLAYMAN: I have a few more questions,

more.

Q Have you ever seen Exhibit 4 before?

A I don't know. I don't believe so. This is
8
11:51:35
different from the one we marked before, right?
9
11:51:37
This is -- this is her responding to some comments,
10
11:51:41
something that you sent to her?
11
11:51:42
Q I'm just asking if you've seen it before.
12
11:51:45
A Did you threaten her too?
13
11:51:47
Q I'm not asking -- I'm not answering the
14
11:51:48
questions; you are.
15
11:51:49
A Oh, I'm just trying to understand the
16
11:51:50
context of this.
17
11:51:51
Q I asked you if you ever saw the document
18
11:51:53
before.
19
11:51:54
A She seems to be responding -- am I right in
20
11:51:57
thinking that she's responding to something you
21
11:51:59
wrote her, which I assume given it was you,
22
11:52:02
threatened her.

This is exhibit -- this appears to be the

10
11:52:46
THE WITNESS: Is it? Oh, okay. Well,
11
11:52:53
maybe -- I don't know. I'm confused by the format.
12
11:53:05
I remember seeing this paragraph 4 on page 2 of
13
11:53:11
Exhibit 4, which I also guess is the same as
14
11:53:16
paragraph 4 on page 3 of Exhibit 1. So I don't

know. I'm just confused by the format.

paragraph 4 in both Exhibit 4 and Exhibit 1. I
20
11:53:37
don't remember necessarily seeing these comments.

Maybe they were there and I didn't focus on them. I

don't know.

12:00:52
Q Exhibit 9 is a composite exhibit. The
6
12:00:54
first page -- and these documents were produced by
7
12:00:57
Judicial Watch in this case. The first page is the
8
12:01:00
Driscoll letter, copy to Paul Orfanedes. The second
9
12:01:05
page, that's Judicial Watch Exhibit JW 000505, at
10
12:01:10
least that's the Bates number, purports to be an
11
12:01:12
e-mail from Paul Orfanedes to Connie Ruffley, but
12
12:01:22
the letterhead is Tom Fitton. Can you explain to me
13
12:01:26
why it's configured that way and what this is?
14
12:01:29
A Yeah, because Tom printed it out. I didn't
15
12:01:31
save it so I didn't have it.
16
12:01:32
Q So you forwarded this e-mail from Connie
17
12:01:35
Ruffley to Tom Fitton?
18
12:01:37
A No. I responded to -- well, I guess you
19
12:01:41
got to follow the chain of command. This is a
20
12:01:45
multipage one. Looks like Steve Anderson, who is
21
12:01:48
our director of development, sent it to Tom, Chris,
22
12:01:51
and me, CC'd to Susan. I responded to Connie and I

12:02:06
in his e-mail account or on his computer when we did
3
12:02:10
the document production; I didn't. Like I say, I
4
12:02:14
don't save stuff, so he produced it.
5
12:02:20
Q The e-mail from you to Connie --
6
12:02:26
A Mm-hmm.
7
12:02:27
Q -- says, "We've had a couple of inquiries
8
12:02:29
about this posting. Can you make clear to Ms. Taitz
9
12:02:32
or whomever is responsible for the posting that she
10
12:02:32
was invited by UROC and not 'the Judicial Watch.'
11
12:02:36
The posting also needs to be corrected to avoid any
12
12:02:39
further confusion. Thanks. PJO."
13
12:02:41
Those are your initials, correct?
14
12:02:45
A Mm-hmm.
15
12:02:45
Q What's this about? Just describe it for us
16
12:02:48
briefly. What's this whole issue?
17
12:02:50
A Oh, it looks like -- well, Connie for quite
18
12:02:52
a long time has been -- I don't know what her title
19
12:02:54
is with UROC, United Republicans Of California.
20
12:02:59
It's a conservative political organization and she
21
12:03:02
has some leadership role with that organization.
22
12:03:04
She does this outside of Judicial Watch.

12:03:07
I think UROC asked -- I mean, I'm just
2
12:03:11
going based on my recollection of my review of these
3
12:03:16
documents. I think UROC might have asked Orly to
4
12:03:20
come speak at an event, and it sounds like she
5
12:03:23
misunderstood that, Orly did, and was saying that
6
12:03:28
the request came from Judicial Watch. So people
7
12:03:34
apparently were contacting us about Orly Taitz's
8
12:03:37
appearance, and we needed to tell Connie to correct
9
12:03:41
that because we can't be involved in political
10
12:03:44
organizations.
11
12:03:44
Q So it concerned you that Orly Taitz
12
12:03:47
believed that Judicial Watch had invited her to a --
13
12:03:51
to a political event?
14
12:03:52
A No. It concerned me that it created a
15
12:03:54
false appearance that Judicial Watch had invited
16
12:03:57
Orly Taitz to speak at some event.
17
12:04:01
Q And this e-mail was kept in the ordinary
18
12:04:05
course of Judicial Watch's recordkeeping?
19
12:04:07
A I guess it was. I mean, Tom must have kept
20
12:04:10
it; I didn't. So that might be better directed to
21
12:04:13
him.
22
12:04:18
Q Was there a concern that Orly Taitz having

12:04:22
been involved in an issue involving me, Larry
2
12:04:26
Klayman, thought that Judicial Watch was inviting
3
12:04:29
her to an event?
4
12:04:29
A I don't know. It does seem to demonstrate
5
12:04:31
a pattern of misunderstanding on the part of
6
12:04:34
Ms. Taitz, however.
7
12:04:35
Q I'm not asking about Ms. Taitz. We'll get
8
12:04:37
to Ms. Taitz. I'm talking about you, Judicial
9
12:04:41
Watch. Was there a concern that you didn't want to
10
12:04:43
be associated with Ms. Taitz because of what had
11
12:04:45
happened with me?
12
12:04:46
A No. The concern was that -- like I just
13
12:04:54
tried to articulate, the concern was that this
14
12:04:56
political organization, not Judicial Watch, had
15
12:05:01
invited Ms. Taitz. Ms. Taitz, you know, I think she
16
12:05:06
was a candidate. I don't know. But we try to be
17
12:05:10
very careful about making sure we don't -- aren't
18
12:05:14
affiliated with political organizations. UROC is a
19
12:05:17
political organization.
20
12:05:18
You know, we're very protective of our
21
12:05:22
501(c)(3) status that we not become involved in
22
12:05:26
electoral issues. UROC is involved in electoral

issues. It created a false impression that Judicial
2
12:05:33
Watch was sponsoring this candidate speaking, not
3
12:05:37
UROC, so we needed that corrected.
4
12:05:38
Q So with regard to a so-called false
5
12:05:40
impression that Judicial Watch was inviting Orly
6
12:05:43
Taitz to a political event --
7
12:05:43
A Mm-hmm.
8
12:05:46
Q -- at UROC, you found it necessary to
9
12:05:48
communicate with Ms. Ruffley and caution her,
10
12:05:52
correct?
11
12:05:53
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
12
12:05:54
THE WITNESS: I don't think I was
13
12:05:55
cautioning her. I think -- this e-mail or this
14
12:06:02
e-mail chain seems to show that Ms. Taitz is saying
15
12:06:04
she was invited to a Judicial Watch function when it
16
12:06:08
was truly a UROC function, and I was asking Connie
17
12:06:11
to make sure that that was clarified. This is not a
18
12:06:13
cautioning to Connie. This is can you make sure
19
12:06:17
this is clarified, sort of. That's exactly what I
20
12:06:20
said.

Judicial Watch and an appearance of political

12:06:27
activity, you and Judicial Watch were concerned that
3
12:06:32
that not appear on a posting, correct?
4
12:06:38
A I don't know. Like I said, we were very --
5
12:06:40
I think this has nothing to do with, you know, the
6
12:06:44
convicted versus indicted confusion in Ms. Taitz's
7
12:06:48
prior posting. We're very protective of our
8
12:06:53
501(c)(3) status. We wanted it to be clear this was
9
12:06:57
not a Judicial Watch function she was speaking at.
10
12:06:59
This was a UROC function, and we asked Connie to
11
12:07:02
clarify that.
12
12:07:03
Q So when Judicial Watch's interests are
13
12:07:05
concerned, you will communicate with Ms. Taitz, but
14
12:07:07
when Larry Klayman is involved and he's being
15
12:07:10
allegedly accused of committing a crime, you have no
16
12:07:13
interest in communicating with -- with Ruffley?
17
12:07:15
A Judicial Watch wasn't communicating with
18
12:07:17
Orly Taitz.
19
12:07:19
Q But you did find a need to correct this
20
12:07:21
posting, correct?
21
12:07:23
A We asked Connie to make clear, like I said,
22
12:07:27
to Ms. Taitz or whoever is responsible that she's

being invited by UROC, not by Judicial Watch.
2
12:07:32
Q But Judicial Watch and yourself made no
3
12:07:35
effort to have the posting corrected with regard to
4
12:07:37
Larry Klayman by Ms. Taitz, correct?
5
12:07:39
MR. KRESS: Objection to form. Asked and
6
12:07:41
answered.
7
12:07:42
You can answer.
8
12:07:42
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
9
12:07:43
Q That was not of concern to you --
10
12:07:44
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
11
12:07:45
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
12
12:07:45
Q -- because it involved me and not you?
13
12:07:47
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
14
12:07:48
THE WITNESS: I think I've already answered
15
12:07:49
that.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17
12:07:50
Q Turn to Judicial Watch Bates No. 508.
18
12:07:56
A Mm-hmm.
19
12:07:56
Q This is a -- this purports to be an e-mail
20
12:08:01
from Constance Ruffley dated January 7, 2013,
21
12:08:05
relatively recent, correct -- no. Excuse me -- a
22
12:08:09
year ago, correct?

12:08:10
A More than a year ago.
2
12:08:11
Q To Tom Fitton, Paul Orfanedes, and Chris
3
12:08:15
Farrell, subject: Judge orders eligibility attorney
4
12:08:18
to stay away.
5
12:08:20
A I guess, yeah.
6
12:08:21
Q This is an e-mail that all three of you,
7
12:08:24
Fitton, Orfanedes, and Farrell received from Connie
8
12:08:27
Ruffley?
9
12:08:27
A Apparently. I don't remember it.
10
12:08:28
Q And it starts off by saying, from my
11
12:08:33
sister-in-law in parens, and then Connie writes,
12
12:08:38
"Klayman is at it again! Read if you're interested.
13
12:08:40
The truly disturbing thing, however, is that the
14
12:08:46
judge DID refer to a fictitious movie to make his
15
12:08:50
ruling!"
16
12:08:50
That's what Connie wrote to you. Is that
17
12:08:53
correct?
18
12:08:53
A That's what it says.
19
12:08:54
Q Did you discuss this e-mail with Mr. Fitton
20
12:08:56
or Mr. Farrell?
21
12:08:57
A No, I have no recollection of whatsoever of
22
12:08:59
this e-mail.

12:09:00
Q This document was kept in the ordinary
2
12:09:02
course of Judicial Watch's recordkeeping?
3
12:09:03
A I don't know. You'd have to ask Mr. Fitton
4
12:09:05
that. I think Connie seems to be more concerned
5
12:09:09
about what the judge is doing, which was very
6
12:09:12
Judicial Watch related.
7
12:09:13
Q I'm not asking you a question,
8
12:09:14
Mr. Orfanedes, on this.
9
12:09:17
A Okay.
10
12:09:17
Q I'll get to the question. This document
11
12:09:19
was produced from Tom Fitton's computer?
12
12:09:22
A That's my assumption. I believe so.
13
12:09:24
Q What kind of computer does he have?
14
12:09:26
A I don't know. I'm not in charge of the
15
12:09:27
computers.
16
12:09:31
Q "Klayman is at it again!" That shows that
17
12:09:33
Ms. Ruffley is very concerned about what I'm doing,
18
12:09:35
correct?
19
12:09:36
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
20
12:09:37
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
21
12:09:37
Q Is that the way you took it?
22
12:09:38
A No. I don't even remember it. I didn't

take it any way.
2
12:09:45
Q What difference does it make what I'm doing
3
12:09:47
to Judicial Watch?
4
12:09:48
A None.
5
12:09:48
Q Why did Ms. Ruffley write that to you?
6
12:09:52
A I don't know.
7
12:09:52
MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
8
12:09:55
THE WITNESS: I don't know.
9
12:09:56
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
10
12:09:56
Q Did you caution Ms. Ruffley stay away from
11
12:09:59
Klayman after you saw this e-mail?
12
12:10:01
A I don't -- I don't remember seeing this
13
12:10:02
e-mail until just recently, Larry.
14
12:10:04
Q Do you know whether Fitton or Farrell told
15
12:10:07
Connie, get off of Klayman. Get on to something
16
12:10:13
else?
17
12:10:13
A Number one, I don't think she's on Klayman;
18
12:10:15
and number 2, no, I don't believe they did.
19
12:10:19
Q Because you don't care that she's somehow
20
12:10:21
preoccupied with me?
21
12:10:22
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3
12:10:26
Q How did you take it Klayman is it at again?
4
12:10:29
A I don't know. Maybe she likes whatever
5
12:10:31
work you were doing here. I don't know. I have no
6
12:10:32
idea, Larry. I don't know what this e-mail is, like
7
12:10:35
I said.
8
12:10:35
Q Okay.
9
12:10:37
A Did the judge -- I mean, is this something
10
12:10:38
about a judge in your case and did you really refer
11
12:10:41
to a movie in making his decision?
12
12:10:45
MR. KLAYMAN: We'll leave the deposition
13
12:10:47
open.
14
12:10:48
THE WITNESS: I object to that. You've had
15
12:10:51
ample opportunity to ask me all kinds of questions
16
12:10:53
and I object to it being opened.
17
12:10:54
MR. KLAYMAN: You didn't answer them.

THE WITNESS: I answered everything to the

12:10:57
best of my ability.
20
12:10:58
MR. KRESS: We're not agreeing to anything,
21

but the deposition's over and we'll reserve the

2
13:26:18
Q Prior to my having sued you -- sued

13:27:32
A My understanding is that you are upset or
2
13:27:37
feel that you've been harmed in some way about what
3
13:27:46
a lawyer named Taitz published or put on a web site
4
13:27:50
or said.
5
13:27:56
Q And what is -- what is your understanding
6
13:27:58
of what she put on the web site about me?
7
13:28:00
A I don't know. I never read it.
8
13:28:01
Q You never read the complaint?
9
13:28:03
A I never read what Taitz put on a web site
10
13:28:06
or published or whatever.
11
13:28:07
Q Did you read the complaint you were served
12
13:28:09
with when I served you?
13
13:28:11
A I'm sure I did when I first saw it.
14
13:28:14
Q And what do you remember about my
15
13:28:15
allegations?
16
13:28:26
A Something about whether you did or didn't
17
13:28:28
pay child support.
18
13:28:29
Q Are you aware that, according to Orly
19
13:28:33
Taitz, that Connie Ruffley said that I'd been
20
13:28:36
convicted of the crime of not paying child support?

Q Had you ever heard of Orly Taitz at the
11
13:29:10
point you were served with the complaint?
12
13:29:12
A I probably had some awareness of her, but I
13
13:29:15
don't -- I mean, I wasn't -- I didn't have any great
14
13:29:17
knowledge other than the name being in the news
15
13:29:19
occasionally.
16
13:29:19
Q What -- what did you understand her to be
17
13:29:22
doing professionally?
18
13:29:32
A That she was a lawyer who filed lawsuits
19
13:29:35
generally in sort of the birther movement or that
20
13:29:39
issue about the eligibility of the President based
21
13:29:43
on his place of birth or the validity of his
22
13:29:46
certificate or something like that.

13:31:33
Yesterday -- this is Dr. Orly Taitz writing -- I
10
13:31:38
gave a 2-hour presentation of my platform as a
11
13:31:41
candidate for the U.S. Senate. The presentation was
12
13:31:43
given to some 100 California voters in the Women's
13
13:31:46
club of Garden Grove. I was told that a
14
13:31:49
representative of the Judicial Watch drove for over
15
13:31:51
an hour from San Marino to hear me speak and talk to
16
13:31:54
me. I got a very warm reception. After my
17
13:31:58
presentation people stood up and applauded. This
18
13:32:01
member of the Judicial Watch approached me and gave
19
13:32:03
me her card. Her name is Constance Ruffley and she
20
13:32:06
is the office administrator for the Judicial Watch
21
13:32:08
in the western regional headquarters at 2540
22
13:32:11
Huntington Drive, San Marino. She told me that she

13:32:16
used to work for the FBI and that she worked for the
2
13:32:19
Judicial Watch for many years. She actually
3
13:32:20
initiated the discussion about Larry Klayman and
4
13:32:22
told me that she heard that he's involved in birther
5
13:32:26
cases. I told her that this group Article II Super
6
13:32:29
PAC was soliciting money, that they sent an e-mail
7
13:32:32
and posted on their site an advertisement on
8
13:32:34
February 10 asking for $25,000 claiming that they
9
13:32:37
need to raise $25,000 in 96 hours as the cases in
10
13:32:41
Florida and California need to be filed within a
11
13:32:43
week. I told her that it was a hard sell. They
12
13:32:49
wrote it is now or never saying finally Clinton's
13
13:32:52
team met their match dissing 4 years of my tireless
14
13:32:56
work in the process, and in the end nothing was
15
13:32:58
filed by Larry Klayman. It is not clear what
16
13:33:00
happened to all of the money that was raised, who
17
13:33:02
got it.
18
13:33:04
Then it states in the next paragraph,
19
13:33:07
Ms. Ruffley actually advised me that Larry Klayman
20
13:33:09
is not licensed in California. She told me that he
21
13:33:12
no longer work with the Judicial Watch and that
22
13:33:15
donors should know about litigation in Ohio where he

13:33:20
amount in child support. She provided a lot of

13:33:23
other information. I will publish only what is a

13:33:25
public record. I'm not publishing anything that is

13:33:28
not a public record.
6
13:33:29
Does this refresh your recollection as to
7
13:33:31
whether or not you have ever known or been advised
8
13:33:38
that Connie Ruffley, Constance Ruffley, stated to
9
13:33:42
Orly Taitz, which was then published on Orly Taitz's
10
13:33:47
web site that I was convicted of a crime?
11

Q Does this refresh your memory as to whether
17
13:33:56
or not you've known before today that Constance
18
13:33:58
Ruffley allegedly said that I, Larry Klayman, was
19
13:34:00
convicted of a crime?
20
13:34:02
A I think that's what you put in your
21
13:34:04
complaint.
22
13:34:06
Q But you didn't know it was in the complaint

a few minutes ago when I testified (sic) to you.
2
13:34:12
A I said when you gave me the complaint
3
13:34:13
that's when I became aware of what you're -- what
4
13:34:16
you're suing, what you're claiming.
5
13:34:17
Q Okay. Before that you were not aware what
6
13:34:19
I just read to you?
7
13:34:21
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
8
13:34:22
THE WITNESS: I don't agree. I told you
9
13:34:23
that when you gave me -- when the complaint was
10
13:34:26
served, I read it and I learned what you were upset
11
13:34:29
about.
12

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
13
13:34:29
Q Okay. As a member of the Board of
14
13:34:32
Directors of Judicial Watch, would you have wanted
15
13:34:35
to been -- would you have wanted to be advised that
16
13:34:37
Connie Ruffley purportedly said these things about
17
13:34:40
me that were then published on a web site, the

13:34:45
Leading Eligibility web site?
19
13:34:46

13:34:59
question's about.

Q Is my complaint make believe?

Q If this was said, is that make believe?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

13:35:11
You can answer.

defamatory of someone in public, that would be

13:35:37
something, as a member of the board, you'd want to

13:35:39
know about?
4
13:35:40
A All sorts of people have their personal
5
13:35:42
opinions about all sorts of topics. I have no idea
6
13:35:45
what people say or don't say anywhere whether
7
13:35:47
they're in public or they're in private. I don't

around.
8
13:36:30
Q All right. Let's -- let's see if you can

13:36:34
question, your duties at Judicial Watch are, as you

13:38:40
some employee does something which is illegal,
19
13:38:45
wouldn't you want to know about it as a member of
20
13:38:47
the board?
21
13:38:47
A If they do something illegal?
22
13:38:50
Q Yeah.

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4
13:38:54
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5
13:38:54
Q If indeed it's defamation?
6
13:38:56
A That's a big if. What a what an individual
7
13:38:59
private person does is not necessarily the position
8
13:39:04
of Judicial Watch. There's all sorts of employees
9
13:39:06
who have all different opinions and ideas. I don't
10
13:39:13
go around, you know, monitoring what every
11
13:39:15
individual person says or believes or thinks.
12
13:39:16
They're entitled to their personal opinion.
13
13:39:18
Q Let's talk about Constance Ruffley.
14
13:39:20
Constance Ruffley, on or about February 23rd, 2012,
15
13:39:24
was the office administrator of Judicial Watch in
16
13:39:26
its San Marino, California office, correct?
17
13:39:28
A Yes.
18
13:39:28
Q And, in fact, during your tenure at
19
13:39:31
Judicial Watch, you've communicated with Constance
20
13:39:33
Ruffley from time to time, correct?
21
13:39:35
A Correct.
22
13:39:35
Q And you've communicated with her about

legal matters, correct?
2
13:39:40
A No.
3
13:39:41
Q Judicial Watch deals with a lot of legal
4
13:39:44
matters; does it not?
5
13:39:45
A Yes.
6
13:39:46
Q Files Freedom of Information Act requests?
7
13:39:48
A Correct.
8
13:39:49
Q Files lawsuits when they're not responded
9
13:39:51
to in whole or in part, right?
10
13:39:54
A Correct.
11
13:39:54
Q Files lawsuits over guest worker programs
12
13:39:59
with regard to immigration, correct?
13
13:40:03
A Correct.
14
13:40:04
Q Okay. Files ethics complaints against
15
13:40:08
public officials who have alleged to violate the
16
13:40:11
law --
17
13:40:11
A True.
18
13:40:11
Q -- correct? Judicial Watch is in effect
19
13:40:15
like a public-interest law firm; is it not?
20
13:40:22
A In some capacity it may operate that way.
21
13:40:26
Q Yes. So consequently -- and Judicial
22
13:40:28
Watch's mission is to further ethics, correct?

Q Judicial Watch's mission is to make sure

13:40:33
that others are not acting dishonestly, correct?
4
13:40:38
A Correct.
5
13:40:39
Q So, therefore, if an employee like
6
13:40:41
Constance Ruffley says something about someone that
7
13:40:44
is defamatory, as a member of the board, you would
8
13:40:48
want to know about that, right?

13:40:49
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

THE WITNESS: That's a big if.

12
13:40:57
Q And that gets back to the three monkeys.
13
13:41:00
You'd rather just close your eyes and pretend it
14
13:41:02
never happened, correct?
15
13:41:03
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
16
13:41:05
THE WITNESS: There's no reason for you to
17
13:41:08
go down this path of being insulting. You've
18
13:41:12
already been admonished in previous litigation.
19
13:41:15
There's no reason for you to go down this path
20
13:41:18
again. I just want to get on the record you've been
21
13:41:22
admonished by a magistrate judge in the last
22
13:41:23
deposition.

13:41:24
Q You will answer the question.
3
13:41:25
A You're being abusive, and you --
4
13:41:27
Q I'm not being abusive. I'm not being
5
13:41:27
abusive.
6
13:41:27
A Continue.
7
13:41:29
Q I'm using an analogy.
8
13:41:31
A What's your next question, Mr. Klayman?
9
13:41:31
What's your next question?
10
13:41:33
Q My question is you don't hear anything, you
11
13:41:36
don't want to see anything, and you don't want to do
12
13:41:38
anything when I'm involved, correct?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
14

THE WITNESS: I have no interest in you

whatsoever.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17
13:41:44
Q Even if an employee does something which is
18
13:41:47
illegal toward me, employee of Judicial Watch, you
19
13:41:49
have no interest?

13:42:02
or no, to that effect?
4
13:42:04
A I don't know.
5
13:42:04
Q Have you ever made an effort to find out?
6
13:42:07
A No.
7
13:42:09
Q And if Con- -- even after you were sued you
8
13:42:11
made no effort?
9
13:42:12
A Excuse me?
10
13:42:13
Q Even after you were sued by me you've made
11
13:42:15
no effort?
12
13:42:16
A No.
13
13:42:16
Q Because you don't care?
14
13:42:19
A I'm not concerned with you, Mr. Klayman.
15
13:42:22
Q Are you concerned with Judicial Watch?
16
13:42:23
A Absolutely, yes.
17
13:42:24
Q Okay. And if Judicial Watch is being sued
18
13:42:28
over an alleged defamatory statement, you want to
19
13:42:31
get all the facts, as a member of the Board of
20
13:42:33
Directors, correct?
21
13:42:36
A I rely on our counsel. This is our
22
13:42:43
eleventh year of litigation with you, Mr. Klayman,

800-292-4789 www.merrillcorp.com/law
Merrill LAD
Page 33

13:42:48
our eighth or ninth lawsuit. So the fact that
2
13:42:50
you're suing us again on something you've made up or
3
13:42:53
you have some, you know, claim about -- there's no
4
13:42:57
telling what you'll say.
5
13:42:58
Q You don't like me, do you?
6
13:43:00
A I don't have any feeling at all towards
7
13:43:02
you.
8
13:43:09
Q Do you have a feeling towards Judicial
9
13:43:11
Watch?
10
13:43:11
A Yes.
11
13:43:18
Q Did you ever discuss these allegations that
12
13:43:20
I committed a crime with Connie Ruffley?
13
13:43:23
A No.
14
13:43:23
Q Do you know of anyone at Judicial Watch who
15
13:43:26
has?
16
13:43:30
A No. I haven't been party to anything like
17
13:43:33
that.
18
13:43:33
Q As a member of the Board of Directors, do
19
13:43:38
you feel there was an obligation of the other two
20
13:43:39
directors to advise you what was going on between
21
13:43:42
Larry Klayman, Connie Ruffley, and Judicial Watch?
22
13:43:45
A I don't understand the question.

13:43:47
Q As a member of the board --
2
13:43:49
A Yes.
3
13:43:49
Q -- do you believe that you should be fully
4
13:43:51
informed of allegations against Judicial Watch that
5
13:43:57
had violated the law?
6
13:44:00
A Please restate the question.
7
13:44:01
Q As a member of the Board of Directors of
8
13:44:03
Judicial Watch, do you believe that you should be
9
13:44:05
fully informed of any allegations that are made
10
13:44:08
against Judicial Watch that have violated the law?
11
13:44:11
A Certainly.
12
13:44:17
Q So by not informing you of these
13
13:44:20
allegations, the other two directors breached their
14
13:44:22
duty towards you as another member of the board,
15
13:44:25
correct?
16
13:44:25
A I don't even understand your question.
17
13:44:29
Q I'll rephrase it. Let me show you what's
18
13:44:36
been marked as Exhibit 3. On the first page of this
19
13:45:01
composite exhibit is a letter of March 5th, 2012
20
13:45:04
addressed to me from Richard Driscoll of Driscoll &
21
13:45:11
Seltzer, copy to Paul Orfanedes.
22
13:45:13
Have you ever seen this letter before?

13:45:17
A I believe so.
2
13:45:17
Q When?
3
13:45:21
A Probably sometime around the date of the
4
13:45:22
letter. I can't tell you exactly when.
5
13:45:26
Q And in this letter I'm making an allegation
6
13:45:28
that Constance Ruffley said something that was
7
13:45:34
defamatory about me that was put on the internet?
8
13:45:35
A No. This letter is from Mr. Driscoll
9
13:45:38
telling you that you've produced no evidence to
10
13:45:41
support your outrageous allegations.
11
13:45:43
Q Okay. And what did you understand
12
13:45:45
Mr. Driscoll to be talking about when you saw it on
13
13:45:48
or about March 5th, 2012?
14
13:45:50
A That you had some sort of claim you were
15
13:45:52
making, some sort of allegations that were
16
13:45:54
unsupported and were outrageous.
17
13:45:56
Q How did you come about seeing this letter
18
13:45:58
on March 5th, 2012?
19
13:46:00
A I don't know that it was that date.
20
13:46:02
Sometime around then.
21
13:46:02
Q Yeah, how did -- how did it come to your
22
13:46:04
attention?

800-292-4789 www.merrillcorp.com/law

Page 36

13:46:13
A Because you had sent some sort of
2
13:46:14
threatening e-mail or communication and Mr. Driscoll
3
13:46:17
responded to you. Mr. Driscoll is our counsel, and
4
13:46:19
he kept us informed of what was going on.
5
13:46:21
Q And you saw the threatening e-mail?
6
13:46:24
A I don't recall it per se. I don't know
7
13:46:26
exactly what it says, but I'm -- I'm kind of
8
13:46:31
familiar --
9
13:46:32
Q Take your opportunity and read --
10
13:46:33
A Like I said, this is our eleventh year of
11
13:46:38
litigation or eighth or ninth lawsuit from you, so
12
13:46:42
threatening e-mails from you are somewhat common.
13
13:46:45
Q If they're so common, how come they haven't
14
13:46:48
been produced in this litigation?
15
13:46:49
A I don't know.
16
13:46:50
Q Were they destroyed like -- like other
17
13:46:51
things were destroyed?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
20
13:46:53

21
13:46:54
communications that concern me with Judicial Watch?
22
13:46:57
You're aware of that, in this litigation?

Q Well, are you aware of that Mr. Farrell?
4
13:47:03
A Excuse me?
5
13:47:04
Q Are you aware that I've requested e-mails
6
13:47:06
or any documentation that referred to me in this
7
13:47:11
litigation I've requested be produced by Judicial
8
13:47:15
Watch?
9
13:47:15
MR. KRESS: Object to the form.
10
13:47:18
THE WITNESS: I know that you've asked for
11
13:47:20
all sorts of things, but our counsel's responded to
12
13:47:23
you.
13
13:47:24
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
13:47:24
Q Are you aware that I asked for e-mail and
15
13:47:27
other communications?
16
13:47:28
A I'm certain you asked for all sorts of
17
13:47:30
things, the details of which I'm not 100 percent
18
13:47:34
familiar with, but your -- your requests are usually
19
13:47:37
very broad and sweeping.
20
13:47:40
Q Oh, so you do keep abreast of legal
21
13:47:43
matters, correct?
22
13:47:46
A I don't understand your question.

Q So you do keep abreast of legal matters if
2
13:47:50
you're looking at my requests, right?
3
13:47:51
A I just finished telling you I was informed
4
13:47:54
by our counsel of your usual string of threatening
5
13:47:58
e-mails and I responded to you.
6
13:47:58
Q So when you testified before that you knew
7
13:48:01
of nothing since the complaint you lied, correct?
8
13:48:03
A No. You're making false and misleading
9
13:48:04
statements.
10
13:48:05
Q Okay. Then why did you testify that way?
11
13:48:07
MR. KRESS: Objection.

THE WITNESS: I didn't testify that way.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
13:48:09
Q We'll let the record speak for itself.
15
13:48:12
A Absolutely.
16
13:48:12
Q Take an opportunity and review this
17
13:48:19
document. I'm going to ask you questions about it.
18
13:50:32
A Okay.
19
13:50:33
Q You've seen these string of e-mails
20
13:50:37
culminating in the letter from Mr. Driscoll on March
21
13:50:41
5, 2012 before, correct?
22
13:50:43
A I don't know if that's true.

one.

13:50:54
Q Look on the second-to-last page from the

end of this composite exhibit, e-mail to Rich
13
13:51:08
Driscoll from Larry Klayman. Rich, I'm being
14
13:51:12
defamed by an employee and agent of Judicial Watch,
15

Connie Ruffley. Please call me to discuss. Thank
16
13:51:18
you, Larry.
17
13:51:19
Have you seen that e-mail before?

13:51:20
A I don't know.

13:51:21
Q In and around February 23, 2012, which is
20
13:51:24
the date of the e-mail, you were aware that I was
21
13:51:27
making allegations that Connie Ruffley had defamed
22
13:51:30
me, correct?

13:51:31
THE WITNESS: I don't know that -- if it
3
13:51:32
was the 23rd, but perhaps sometime shortly
4
13:51:35
afterwards.
5
13:51:35
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
6
13:51:36
Q And you're aware that it concerned Connie
7
13:51:38
Ruffley stating to Orly Taitz that I committed a
8
13:51:41
crime; you were aware of that?
9
13:51:43
A I don't know what Ms. Ruffley did or not
10
13:51:45
say in respect to this e-mail. I have no idea,
11
13:51:48
because you don't say it.
12
13:51:49
Q Did you make any inquiry, what is Klayman
13
13:51:51
talking about, with either the Judicial Watch board
14
13:51:56
or with Richard Driscoll?
15
13:52:00
A I was relying on Mr. Driscoll to handle
16
13:52:03
whatever it was you were claiming.
17
13:52:07
Q So you felt no obligation, as a member of
18
13:52:09
the board, to inquire?
19
13:52:10
A No. I had very competent legal counsel
20
13:52:13
addressing another one of your claims.
21
13:52:20
Q If indeed I was defamed, would there be an
22
13:52:25
obligation of Judicial Watch, as a member of the

board, to correct it?

13:52:30
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
3
13:52:33
THE WITNESS: I mean, that's a
4
13:52:35
hypothetical, if indeed you were. I have no idea.
5
13:52:37
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
6
13:52:37
Q Well, what I'm saying is, if I'm correct
7
13:52:39
here in what I'm writing to Mr. Driscoll that I was
8
13:52:42
defamed, wouldn't you want to know the specifics if
9
13:52:47
Judicial Watch could correct it?
10
13:52:48
MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
11
13:52:52
THE WITNESS: I don't know what's going on
12
13:52:54
inside your head, so I can't -- I can't make an
13
13:52:56
answer based upon what you may or may not think may
14
13:52:59
or may not be defamatory. I don't know.
15
13:53:02
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
16
13:53:02
Q I'm talking about from the perspective of
17
13:53:04
Judicial Watch. Mr. Driscoll can't make a decision
18
13:53:06
to correct it, can he? He's just outside counsel,
19
13:53:12
correct?
20
13:53:13
A Mr. Driscoll was our legal counsel, that's
21
13:53:15
correct.
22
13:53:15
Q And he can't make a decision to take any

action on behalf of Judicial Watch unless the Board

13:53:21
approves, correct?

13:53:22
MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4
13:53:24
THE WITNESS: We consult with him and take
5
13:53:25
his legal advice, like anybody would. You always
6
13:53:30
consult with your attorneys on matters like this.
7
13:53:32
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8
13:53:32
Q And then Judicial Watch would make the
9
13:53:33
decision whether to correct the defamation -- the
10
13:53:35
alleged defamation or not?
11
13:53:37
A Well, these are your --
12
13:53:41
Q Calls for yes or no.
13
13:53:42
MR. KRESS: You can answer the question.
14
13:53:46
THE WITNESS: You get to ask the question.
15
13:53:47
I get to answer it. You may not like the answer,
16
13:53:49
but that's your problem.
17

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
18

13:53:52
MR. KRESS: You can answer. Let him
20
13:53:53
answer.
21
13:53:53
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22
13:53:53

MR. KRESS: Nobody has to answer yes or no
3
13:53:59
if they don't want to.
4
13:54:01
THE WITNESS: I don't understand your
5
13:54:01
question.
6
13:54:01
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7
13:54:01
Q What is it you don't understand?
8
13:54:01
A I don't understand your question. Please
9
13:54:01
restate it.
10
13:54:01
Q You don't have a clue?

13:54:03
MR. KRESS: What is the question? Why

13:54:03
don't we --
13
13:54:03
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14
13:54:04
Q The question is, only Judicial Watch's
15
13:54:07
Board can correct a defamatory statement. Mr.
16
13:54:11
Driscoll, as outside lawyer, doesn't have that
17
13:54:13
power, correct?
18
13:54:14
A What defamatory statement?
19
13:54:14
MR. KRESS: Objection.
20
13:54:14
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
21
13:54:15
Q If there was one.
22
13:54:15
A I don't know if there was one.

you?

MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
12
13:54:28

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15
13:54:33
Q You didn't want to know, did you?

13:54:35
A Didn't want to know what.
17
13:54:36
Q You didn't want to know what Connie Ruffley
18
13:54:39
said about me?
19
13:54:39
A Please restate your question.

13:54:41
Q You didn't want to know what Connie Ruffley

told Orly Taitz about me?

anything about you.
2
13:54:47
Q Because you never inquired, correct?

13:54:49
A I don't even understand your question.
4
13:55:02
Q Connie Ruffley -- strike that.
5
13:55:07
The reason you didn't want to know what she
6
13:55:10
purportedly said about me is because it was about
7
13:55:13
me, Larry Klayman, correct?
8
13:55:16
A I don't understand your question.
9
13:55:17
Q Because you didn't --
10
13:55:19
A Can you ask a basic interrogative instead
11
13:55:23
of test- -- providing testimony and then saying
12
13:55:24
right or correct?
13
13:55:26
Q Are you a lawyer, Mr. Farrell?
14
13:55:27
A No. Thank goodness I'm not.
15
13:55:29
Q Right. So don't tell me how to phrase a
16
13:55:33
question. You just answer the question. That's
17
13:55:33
your duty.
18
13:55:34
A Poor layman. I just don't understand these
19
13:55:37
complex legal proceedings.
20
13:55:37
MR. KRESS: All right, let's get a

13:55:37
question before him --

Page 46

13:55:39
Q Your refusal to answer these questions is
2
13:55:43
not an affront towards me, it's an affront towards
3
13:55:43
the court.
4
13:55:43
MR. KRESS: He's not refusing --
5
13:55:44
A I'm not refusing anything. I'm fully
6
13:55:46
cooperative. I'm not refusing anything. I don't
7
13:55:48
understand your questions.
8
13:55:48
Q Tell me what you don't understand?
9
13:55:50
MR. KRESS: He's trying to.
10
13:55:51
THE WITNESS: Yeah, you have a problem with
11
13:55:53
basic interrogatives. Stick with those, it might
12
13:55:57
help you out. Last time we had a magistrate judge
13
13:55:59
come into the room three times to help you form
14
13:56:02
questions. Unfortunately, we don't have that this
15
13:56:04
time.

13:56:05
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17
13:56:05
Q So you are a lawyer?
18
13:56:05
A No, not at all.

Q As far as you're concerned, you don't have

to answer questions. You'll make -- you'll make the
3
13:56:14
rules yourself?
4
13:56:16
A That is false.
5
13:56:16
MR. KRESS: Let's just -- let's just get
6
13:56:18
questions before him which he will answer.
7
13:56:18
THE WITNESS: False and misleading
8
13:56:18
statement from Mr. Klayman.
9
13:56:18
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
10
13:56:19
Q And you'll pretend that you don't
11
13:56:22
understand a question when you don't want to answer
12
13:56:24
it.
13
13:56:25
A That's a false and misleading statement by
14
13:56:27
Mr. Klayman.
15
13:56:27
MR. KRESS: Let's stop for a second. Let's
16
13:56:27
just get some questions before him and let him
17
13:56:31
answer. Let's not get this back-and-forth
18
13:56:31
arguments.
19
13:56:31
MR. KLAYMAN: Do you want to take him out
20
13:56:33
of the room and instruct him that right now he's
21
13:56:35
violating court process.
22
13:56:36
MR. KRESS: He's not violating any court

MR. KLAYMAN: We'll see.

THE WITNESS: Basic interrogatives, please.
4
13:56:41
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5
13:56:41
Q You know, it's -- and that gets back to the
6
13:56:42
question hear no evil, see no evil, do no evil.
7
13:56:46
That's not to be sarcastic or anything, that's a way
8
13:56:51
of doing business for you, isn't it Mr. Farrell?
9
13:56:53
A That's a false and misleading statement on
10
13:56:55
your part, Mr. Klayman.
11
13:56:56
Q Tell me why.
12
13:56:57
A First of all, I didn't find a question in
13
13:56:59
that remark. Where's the question?
14
13:57:01
Q What is it about my question as to whether
15
13:57:04
or not you had a duty, as a member of the board, to
16
13:57:06
find out what Connie Ruffley said? What's confusing
17
13:57:09
about that?
18
13:57:12
A Because I don't know that what you're
19
13:57:16
saying is true.
20
13:57:18
Q And if you never inquire, you'll never be
21
13:57:21
able to find out, will you?

question -- is there a question in there?

13:57:24
BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4
13:57:26
Q We'll let the record speak for itself. Has
5
13:57:31
anyone advised you that you're under oath?
6
13:57:34
A I just took an oath a few minutes ago.
7
13:57:36
Q That means to tell the whole truth, not
8
13:57:38
just what you want to tell?
9
13:57:39
A Absolutely.
10
13:57:42
Q You're aware of the penalty for not telling
11
13:57:45
the truth?
12
13:57:46
A Absolutely.
13
13:57:46
Q In and around the time of these -- this
14
13:57:58
string of e-mails, did you see the publication that
15
13:58:00
Orly Taitz had made that I read to you in her
16
13:58:03
eligibility web site?
17
13:58:05
A No.
18
13:58:05
Q Did you ask to see it?
19
13:58:06
A Didn't know it existed.
20
13:58:11
Q Did you ask to see what the basis of the
21
13:58:13
defamation was -- alleged defamation?
22
13:58:21
A I don't remember.

Q If someone accused you of committing a

crime, you'd want to know about that, wouldn't you?
3
13:58:39
A Certainly.
4
13:58:40
Q Okay. And if someone had said that Chris
5
13:58:44
Farrell committed a crime, why don't we send that
6
13:58:46
information to Judicial Watch's donors, you would
7
13:58:48
want to know about that, right?
8
13:58:54
A Who's the person saying it?
9
13:58:56
Q Anyone.
10
13:58:57
A I don't know.
11
13:58:57
Q Say it was somebody in some position of
12
13:59:02
prominence accused you of committing a crime and
13
13:59:05
then telling the person that was told that to go
14
13:59:10
send that to your donors, you'd want to know about
15
13:59:13
that, correct?
16
13:59:14
A I don't know.
17
13:59:16
Q That wouldn't concern you?
18
13:59:18
A It's a very vague hypothetical, so I don't
19
13:59:20
know -- I can't answer competently.
20
13:59:23
Q What's -- what's vague about your being
21
13:59:24
accused of a crime and then sending it to donors?
22
13:59:29
What's vague about that?

13:59:30
A You don't say who the person is who's
2
13:59:38
making the statement. There's a lot of open-ended
3
13:59:40
loose hypothetical language in there that I'm not
4
13:59:42
going to make a definitive statement about.
5
13:59:44
Q Are you aware that at the time that this
6
13:59:51
correspondence was being sent to Mr. Driscoll I was
7
13:59:54
asking Mr. Driscoll to help resolve the situation to
8
14:00:00
mitigate any damage by clearing up what was said by
9
14:00:03
Constance Ruffley?
10
14:00:03
A What's your question?
11
14:00:04
Q Are you aware that I was reaching out to
12
14:00:06
Mr. Driscoll to try to mitigate the damage to me by
13
14:00:11
clearing up what was said?
14
14:00:13
A I certainly saw Mr. Driscoll's letter back

17
14:00:21
about that letter when you saw it in or about March

14:00:27
6th, 2012?
19
14:00:39
A I probably spoke -- when I saw the letter,
20
14:00:42
I probably spoke with -- I don't think I spoke with
21
14:00:45
Mr. Driscoll at that point. I think I read the
22
14:00:48
letter from him. And I probably spoke with the two

other directors, Tom Fitton and Paul Orfanedes when
2
14:01:01
I received the letter that we'd received this.
3
14:01:04
Q And what did you talk about? What was
4
14:01:06
discussed?
5
14:01:07
A That Mr. Driscoll had answered unsupported
6
14:01:15
outrageous allegations by you concerning -- let's
7
14:01:24
see -- some sort of a conspiracy to defame and
8
14:01:27
disparage, some claim you'd made. I'm just reading
9
14:01:31
from Mr. Driscoll's letter.
10
14:01:32
Q Do you know whether Constance Ruffley has
11
14:01:39
ever been -- whether any director -- strike that.
12
14:01:42
Do you know whether any director of
13
14:01:44
Judicial Watch has ever talked to Constance Ruffley
14
14:01:46
about what I claim was said to Orly Taitz about my
15
14:01:49
committing a crime and then giving that information
16
14:01:51
to donors?
17
14:01:53
A Please restate your question.
18
14:01:55
Q Do you know whether anyone at Judicial
19
14:01:56

20
14:01:59
allegations that Orly Taitz published a statement
21
14:02:03
that Ruffley made that I committed a crime and that
22
14:02:06
should be given to donors?

A I wasn't, you know, personally involved. I
11
14:02:47
have no firsthand knowledge, but I believe
12
14:02:49
Mr. Orfanedes would have spoken to her.
13
14:02:50
Q Did you know -- did Mr. Orfanedes inform
14
14:02:54
you what was discussed between them?
15
14:02:57
A Just the subject generally. I have no idea
16
14:03:00
about specifics of what was discussed.
17
14:03:01
Q You didn't ask?
18
14:03:05
A I don't recall.

BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7
14:07:29
Q Let me just show it to you, if I can hand
8
14:07:31
it over to you. I'm talking about an e-mail which
9
14:07:39
is Judicial Watch Bates No. 505 from Connie Ruffley
10
14:07:44
to Tom Fitton, Christopher Farrell, Steve Anderson,
11
14:07:48
Susan Prytherch, concerning Orly Taitz posting a
12
14:07:52
Judicial Watch invite to speak on her web site.
13
14:07:52
A Okay.
14
14:08:17
Q Showing you this page, have you ever seen
15
14:08:18
that e-mail from Connie Ruffley before?
16
14:08:35
A I don't recall seeing it.
17
14:08:36
Q Are you aware of the subject matter of it,
18
14:08:39
that Orly Taitz was apparently invited to an event
19
14:08:43
that she thought was being sponsored by Judicial
20
14:08:46
Watch but instead it was being sponsored by UROC,
21

U-r-o-c?

have no recollection of it.
2
14:08:56
Q Do you have any recollection of the issue
3
14:08:58
coming up?
4
14:08:59
A Only after you sued this -- no, I guess
5
14:09:01
only after this, the threatening e-mails and the
6
14:09:04
response from Mr. Driscoll, that's when I would
7
14:09:07
have --
8
14:09:07
Q You were aware about this UROC issue after
9
14:09:12
that? This does not concern me. It concerns UROC.
10
14:09:18
A I don't know. I guess I don't recall
11
14:09:21
seeing this.
12
14:09:21
Q Do you know -- do you recall being advised
13
14:09:25
of the situation with Taitz believing that she was
14
14:09:30
invited to an event by Judicial Watch and Judicial
15
14:09:34
Watch telling Connie Ruffley that this needs to be
16
14:09:37
corrected on any posting?
17
14:09:39
A I don't know what Taitz believed, but I see
18
14:09:42
this e-mail and it says PJO, so it's Paul Orfanedes
19
14:09:49
asking that it be made clear that it's her UROC
20
14:09:53
event and not Judicial Watch.
21
14:09:54
Q Were you aware of that at the time, in and
22
14:09:56
around August 28th, 2012?

MR. KLAYMAN: I have no other questions at

what, if anything, comes up in the deposition of

2 (The following proceedings were held
3 off the video record:)
4 MR. KLAYMAN: Just let the record reflect
5 that we had served -- Larry Klayman, plaintiff -- a
6 subpoena on Orly Taitz requiring her appearance for
7 deposition tomorrow in California. Mr. Douglas
8 Kress, counsel for the defendant, Judicial Watch,
9 had asked that we reschedule that deposition to the
10 afternoon; however, that issue is now moot because
11 Ms. Taitz refuses to appear for the deposition at
12 any time.
13 And we filed a motion for Order to Show
14 Cause, and we will be litigating that, and therefore
15 the issue of her appearing in the afternoon tomorrow
16 or whatever is in front of the court. So we're
17 taking off calendar a potential hearing that we were
18 going to have by telephone with the magistrate
19 Simonton for 11:30.
20 MR. KRESS: And I agree with most of that.
21 My -- my objection was to the notice, that 6 days
22 was insufficient no matter what. I mentioned the

1 possibility of the afternoon but then indicated I
2 couldn't do the afternoon either. So -- but, in any
3 event, my understanding is the deposition's
4 cancelled and I'll ask my assistant to have the
5 magistrate take it off the calendar.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: Right, it's cancelled pending
7 the disposition of the motion for Order to Show
8 Cause, and with regard to the deposition, although
9 you did not get the notice until the 24th, we had
10 discussed her deposition before then.
11 MR. KRESS: We had discussed it, but --
12 yeah, we had discussed it, but -- correct. You're
13 correct. We had discussed it, but I did not get
14 notice until the 24th.
15 MR. KLAYMAN: Right, and I'd advised you we
16 were having difficulty serving her, that she was
17 evading service of process at the time, right?
18 MR. KRESS: That is correct. That is
19 correct. I received a notice on the 24th, and I
20 think I got this -- a copy of the subpoena actually
21 for Ms. Taitz on the 27th. All right.
22 MR. KLAYMAN: Let's move on.

4 A 2003.

1 notwithstanding Paul Weyrich's television company?
2 A Well, I presume Weyrich was paying y'all to
3 do that or paying you directly, so I presume it was
4 Judicial Watch at the time.
5 Q I'm the founder of Judicial Watch, correct?
6 A I don't know.
7 Q Who's the founder then if you don't know?
8 A Well, you've told me you're the founder,
9 but I don't have any reason to believe that you're a
10 credible person anymore, so I don't know.
11 Q Are you the founder?
12 A No.
13 Q You are the president of Judicial Watch
14 currently; are you not?

1 president?
2 A I -- I don't know what that -- do I have
3 the ability to search through Judicial Watch's files
4 to determine who the founder is? Yes -- no. No, I
5 don't -- I don't even know what that question means.
6 I don't know what founder means.
7 Q You don't know what the word "founder"
8 means?
9 A No, not in the context you're using it.
10 Q Does it mean a person who conceived of the
11 concept of Judicial Watch?
12 A I do not have the ability to search through
13 records to find out, because I'm not aware any
14 records exist, showing who conceived the founding of
15 Judicial Watch.
16 Q You have the Articles of Incorporation of
17 Judicial Watch; do you not?
18 A Yes.
19 Q And they list me as the incorporator,

4 those records.

8 Q I designed the trademark for Judicial
9 Watch; did I not?
10 A I don't know. That's what you say.
11 Q I conceived of the logo for Judicial Watch?
12 A I don't know. That's what you say.
13 Q The offices which were occupied by Judicial
14 Watch in and around the time that I was working for
15 Weyrich, they were my law offices; were they not?
16 A One more time with that question. Repeat
17 it, please.

19 around the time that Larry Klayman, yours truly, was
20 working with you at Weyrich doing commentary, you
21 visited those offices; did you not?

1 Q In fact, you were not offered President of
2 Judicial Watch at that time, were you?
3 A I recall I was, but, you know, if you want
4 to present information that I wasn't, I'm happy to
5 listen.
6 Q You were offered the position, in effect,
7 of research assistant, correct?
8 A No.
9 Q Do you have any documentation to show that
10 I offered you the position of President of Judicial

3 Washington?
4 A I don't know what you have.
5 Q In fact, you were not graduate -- a
6 graduate of George Washington at the time you came
7 to work for me at Judicial Watch?
8 A No. I had not obtained a degree at the
9 time that I came to work for you Judicial Watch.
10 Q And in fact you did not tell me you did not
11 have a degree?
12 A Okay. This is material that went -- we
13 went over in the other lawsuit, was the subject of
14 much protracted litigation in the other lawsuit
15 where discovery is over. I'm not going to continue
16 to be harassed by this line of questioning.
17 Q Well, you questioned my credibility, did
18 you not, a few minutes ago?
19 A Yes.
20 Q Okay. Are you saying I'm not entitled to

1 That's -- I don't know how he can answer that.
2 THE WITNESS: I don't know how to answer a
3 question like that.
4 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5 Q Calls for yes or no.
6 MR. KRESS: It also could be I don't know,
7 which I think is what he answered.
8 THE WITNESS: That's a legal issue. I
9 don't know.
10 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11 Q Now, you've recently authored a book called
12 Corruption Chronicles; have you not?
13 A Yes.
14 Q When did that book -- when did you conceive
15 of the concept of writing the book?
16 A Again, Mr. Klayman has threatened
17 litigation over that book. For him to engage in
18 discovery to help him with litigation -- other --
19 another round of meritless litigation is improper.
20 Q Can I --
21 A You know, the reason I'm sitting here is
22 because Mr. Klayman assured the court he would have

1 a limited area of inquiry, and Mr. Klayman wants to
2 either relitigate other issues or get into issues he
3 wants to potentially litigate anew or litigate from
4 the beginning. So I'm not going to --
5 Q What's --
6 A -- start talking about a book where he's
7 threatening to litigate us over -- in a separate
8 lawsuit.
9 MR. KLAYMAN: Let's just get -- Mr. Kress,
10 who is the lawyer here?
11 MR. KRESS: Well, let's --
12 MR. KLAYMAN: You know, I'm wondering maybe
13 I've got things reversed here, but it sounds like
14 he's -- he's the lawyer.
15 MR. KRESS: Well, that's -- what is the
16 purpose of -- what's the relevance of --
17 MR. KLAYMAN: Credibility. Credibility.
18 MR. KRESS: Credibility, just because he's
19 writing a book?
20 MR. KLAYMAN: Just a few questions. I'm
21 not even going to dwell on it very long, but I want
22 to ask a couple questions about this --

Page 19
1 MR. KRESS: Well, I mean, I --
2 MR. KLAYMAN: -- and I'm not defensive
3 about asking those questions.
4 MR. KRESS: Is there a -- is there a threat
5 of litigation over this book?
6 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not -- I'm not
7 testifying.
8 MR. KRESS: I think it's -- that could be
9 important to -- well, I think he has a legitimate
10 concern, if -- if there's a threat of litigation and
11 does this involve work product or does this -- is
12 this some other privilege. But why don't you -- if
13 you said you had a limited number of questions,
14 let's not fight over something --
15 MR. KLAYMAN: Yeah, let's just clear this
16 up.
17 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
18 Q Have you and I ever communicated over
19 Corruption Chronicles?
20 A I don't recall if your threats of
21 litigation were directed at me or not personally as
22 opposed --

1 Q In fact, we've never --
2 A I'm trying to answer your question. I
3 don't remember if you sent me e-mails threatening me
4 over the book, so I don't remember.
5 Q In fact, you've never received a threat
6 from me, have you?
7 A Judicial Watch has.

1 A Last year I think.
2 Q Okay. Now, during the time we worked at
3 Judicial Watch together, it was your practice to
4 keep all e-mails and other communications on your
5 hard drive, correct?
6 A That's where they were stored, yes.
7 Q You don't delete from your hard drive, do
8 you?
9 A Yes, I do.
10 Q You've deleted communications with regard
11 to me from your hard drive?

14 trouble for you, correct?

16 Q No? We're good friends?

18 THE WITNESS: No, we're not friendly.

9 THE WITNESS: I don't hate you.

12 years been involved in litigation with you, correct?
13 A I don't know what you mean by with.
14 Q Against you?
15 A Against, yes.
16 Q Okay. Now, as an educated person, as
17 someone who's President of Judicial Watch, in the
18 ordinary course you would therefore keep
19 correspondence with me for legal reasons, correct?
20 A Maybe, maybe not.
21 Q So you don't remember what you've deleted
22 with regard to Larry Klayman?

3 Q You said you don't recall, correct?
4 MR. KRESS: He doesn't recall what?
5 MR. KLAYMAN: Deleting communications with
6 me or other documents that concern me.
7 MR. KRESS: Okay.
8 THE WITNESS: Repeat your last question,
9 because your question was hard to follow.
10 MR. KLAYMAN: Can we read it back, thanks.
11 (The reporter read the record as
12 requested.)
13 THE WITNESS: I don't recall what, if any,
14 documents I've deleted with respect to Larry
15 Klayman.

19 A My laptop?
20 Q Yeah.
21 A Yes.
22 Q Have you deleted documents off that laptop?

1 A I don't know.
2 Q During the time that we worked together at
3 Judicial Watch, we developed a very good reputation
4 for fighting government corruption, correct?
5 A Yes.
6 Q And we were in the newspaper and on TV
7 frequently?
8 A Yes. Judicial Watch was, yes.
9 Q And, in fact, I was on TV and in the
10 newspaper on a weekly basis, sometimes more than
11 once, correct?
12 A I don't know if I can testify about the --
13 how many ti- -- whether it was a weekly basis or
14 not.
15 Q We were attributed with helping to uncover
16 a number of scandals with the Clinton Administration
17 in particular, correct?
18 A Yes. Yes.
19 Q Okay. Some of the scandals that we
20 uncovered included the so-called Chinagate scandal,
21 correct?
22 A I think the lang- -- we've used different

1 language than that.
2 Q Campaign finance scandal, Chinagate
3 scandal?
4 A We were instrumental in helping unraveling
5 certain scandals.
6 Q And, in fact, I was the lead lawyer on that
7 case, correct?
8 A If by case you mean the Commerce Department
9 Freedom of Information Act litigation --
10 Q Yeah.
11 A -- yes, that is correct.
12 Q Okay. And before that there was the case
13 that Judicial Watch brought against the President's
14 legal defense fund -- Clinton's legal defense fund;
15 remember that?
16 A I'm aware of it, but that was before I
17 began my association with Judicial Watch.
18 Q Okay. During the time that you were with
19 Judicial Watch, we -- I also filed suit with regard
20 to the so-called Filegate scandal, where President
21 Clinton and Mrs. Clinton were alleged to have
22 obtained FBI files on about 900 people, adversaries,

1 correct?
2 A Yes. I think you had filed that lawsuit
3 prior to my arrival, but that lawsuit was active
4 when I joined Judicial Watch.
5 Q And we brought lawsuits with regard to
6 Loral Corporation and with regard to the head of the
7 travel office and all kinds of other things during
8 that time period, correct?
9 A Yes.
10 Q Okay. And it became known that Larry
11 Klayman was the lawyer who was primarily bringing
12 these lawsuits in the public domain?
13 A Yes.
14 Q Okay. And, in fact, in one lawsuit, the
15 Filegate lawsuit, Judge Royce Lamberth made a ruling
16 with regard to Kathleen Willey, a woman who alleged
17 that the President had harassed her in the Oval
18 Office, that the release of her Privacy Act file
19 constituted a criminal violation of the Privacy Act;
20 you remember that?
21 A I don't know if that was the exact nature
22 of his ruling, but he had made, I guess, a ruling

Page 27
1 related to a discovery dispute in the Filegate
2 matter, as you describe it, and in ruling in our
3 favor, he found a violation of the Privacy Act by
4 the President, and I think it's fair to argue the
5 First Lady and some others, yes.
6 I don't recall there being a criminal -- I
7 don't -- I guess one could argue that's -- that you
8 can -- you could -- that it's a criminal violation
9 to violate the Privacy Act, but I don't know if the
10 judge said criminal violation or not.
11 Q Well, the ruling was in the context of
12 breaking through the crime fraud exception, was it
13 not, to get testimony from the Clinton
14 Administration, Carville --
15 A I don't remember -- I don't remember
16 specifically --
17 Q -- James Carville?
18 A -- but that sounds like it might be right.
19 But, you know, I guess the record will refl- -- you
20 know, the court record there will tell us what --
21 what actually happened.
22 Q Okay. During the time that we worked

1 together at Judicial Watch, we were also involved in
2 the 2000 election to determine who, in fact, had won
3 in Florida; do you remember that?
4 A Yes.
5 Q Okay. And I was the lawyer who appeared on
6 behalf of Judicial Watch at the trial of Bush v.
7 Gore in a public interest capacity in Tallahassee;
8 you remember that?
9 A I don't know if you appeared there, but
10 you -- I guess you were allowed observer, status,
11 and the judge said, you know, you want to hang
12 around, you can hang around so, yes.
13 Q And during the time we were at Judicial
14 Watch together -- working together, I filed a
15 lawsuit on behalf of Jose Basulto of Brothers to the
16 Rescue concerning the shoot-down of his brothers
17 when they were flying over the Florida Straits
18 trying to pick up rafters who were fleeing from
19 Castro, right; do you remember that?
20 A That's right. Those men were murdered,
21 right.
22 Q And we obtained a $1.8 million judgment,

1 approximately, against Cuba for that?
2 A I don't remember the exact figure, but we
3 did obtain a -- a large judgment against Cuba for
4 Jose, yes.
5 Q And you remember that during the time I was
6 at Judicial Watch we represented the family of Elian
7 Gonzalez for a while?
8 A I don't remember that for sure, but I won't
9 dispute that.
10 Q Towards the end of his stay in the United
11 States, we were attempting to have the judge order
12 him to remain in the United States; do you remember
13 that, towards the end?
14 A I do.
15 Q Okay. And I was the lead lawyer in that?
16 A I presume you were, but I -- I don't
17 remember much about that specific litigation.
18 Q Well, I'm the only lawyer in the firm
19 that's a Florida counsel, correct, at Judicial Watch
20 at the time?
21 A I don't -- I don't know.
22 Q Okay. And you remember that I also took a

1 trip with the victims of Castro, some of the
2 journalists that were imprisoned by him for many
3 years, to Europe to argue for greater European
4 sanctions?
5 A I am not trying to be difficult, but
6 there's a lot in that question that makes it hard to
7 answer one way or --
8 Q You remember I went to Europe with a bunch
9 of Castro's victims, including Castro's daughter,
10 Alina Fernández, to lobby the parliaments of France,
11 Italy, Netherlands, and other countries and the
12 European Union to increase the sanctions on Castro?
13 A I remember there was a trip, one or more
14 trips to Europe that had victims that -- I recall an
15 elderly man who had been a political prisoner for
16 over, you know, 25, 30 years, or something insane
17 like that. I don't know if this was the same trip.
18 I recall a trip with Alina -- I forget -- Fernández,
19 is that her last name?
20 Q Fernández.
21 A I don't remember the sanctions being an
22 issue. I remember, you know, an indictment maybe in

1 a -- in an international court, a European court
2 being an issue, but I do remember trips related to
3 justice for victims of Castro's regime in Europe.
4 Q Well, there were -- there were two trips,
5 correct? There was one to lobby the European Union
6 and the parliaments of various member countries, and
7 then there was another trip to file a criminal
8 complaint in Belgium against Castro for crimes
9 against humanity; do you remember that?
10 A You're -- you are you're refreshing my
11 recollection that there were two separate trips in
12 that regard, yes.
13 Q Okay. The one with regard to Brussels
14 actually occurred shortly after September 11, 2001;
15 do you remember that?
16 A I don't. I don't remember the dates.
17 Q Does it refresh your recollection that I
18 went with Chris Farrell at the time and the victims?
19 A Yeah, I remember Chris and -- Chris Farrell
20 and Larry Klayman, you, and as I said, the elderly
21 gentleman who was, I guess, a former journalist. I
22 don't know who else was on that trip --

1 Q And --
2 A But I don't remember the specifics of which
3 trip was for what and the timing.
4 Q And there was a bomb threat that occurred
5 on the plane flight from Washington, D.C. over to
6 Brussels; you remember that?
7 A I remember the plane was delayed because of
8 some- something uncertain about security on the
9 plane.
10 Q There was an article in The Washington Post
11 about it subsequently; do you remember that?
12 A Yes. I do remember The Washington Post did
13 a story, yes.
14 Q During the time that we worked together at
15 Judicial Watch, you also remember that we filed a
16 lawsuit concerning the Energy Task Force of Dick
17 Cheney, Vice President Dick Cheney?
18 A Yes.
19 Q And I was the lead attorney on that?
20 A Yes.
21 Q And that case made its all -- made its way
22 all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court; do you

1 remember that?
2 A Yes. After you left Judicial Watch, it
3 went to the Supreme Court, yes.
4 Q During the time that I was at Judicial
5 Watch and you were there, I was the general counsel,
6 correct?
7 A You did have the title of Chairman General
8 Counsel, yes.
9 Q Now, your book Corruption Chronicles
10 doesn't even mention my existence, does it?
11 A Existence?
12 Q No mention of Larry Klayman in Corruption
13 Chronicles?
14 A I don't believe there is a mention of your
15 name in that book, no.
16 Q And, in fact, you claim credit for
17 everything that I had done at Judicial Watch in that
18 book, correct?
19 MR. KRESS: Objection to the relevancy and
20 to the form of the question. Is there -- what's
21 the --
22 MR. KLAYMAN: It bears on credibility.

2 MR. KLAYMAN: Yes.
3 MR. KRESS: I don't think it does, but it
4 is discovery. If you're able to answer the
5 question, please do.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: It's not a very tough
7 question. It's not provocative.
8 MR. KRESS: What was the -- What was the --

15 MR. KRESS: Okay.
16 THE WITNESS: I already answered that
17 question.
18 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19 Q And, in fact, when I left Judicial Watch on
20 September 19, 2003, you ordered that all references
21 to me be removed from Judicial Watch's web site,
22 correct?

1 A This is old. This is, again, you know, new
2 discovery in a case that's already been closed in
3 terms of discovery.
4 MR. KRESS: If it's -- I can object. I
5 don't understand -- I don't see the relevance of it.
6 Hopefully, we don't go much further because I think
7 this is --
8 MR. KLAYMAN: No, we're not going to go
9 much further, and I'm -- I'm allowed to get into
10 this, and, you know, we're being quite gentlemanly
11 how we're getting into it so it's not provocative.
12 If you'd just answer the question, Mr. Fitton, I'd
13 appreciate it.
14 MR. KRESS: Would you read the last
15 question back.
16 THE WITNESS: I don't need you to read the
17 question back. No.
18 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19 Q Okay. You didn't order removal of my name
20 from the web site, any reference to me?
21 A No.

1 was it not, any reference to me, anything I had ever
2 done at Judicial Watch?
3 A No.
4 Q Is there any reference to Larry Klayman on
5 the web site today --
6 A I do not know.
7 Q -- on Judicial Watch's web site?
8 A I do not know.
9 Q In fact, after I left Judicial Watch,
10 sometimes people would call in to Judicial Watch
11 thinking I was still there, correct?
12 A This is all either related to the prior
13 litigation or the threats over the book litigation.
14 This is inappropriate.
15 MR. KRESS: I can object.
16 THE WITNESS: I've answered this in
17 previous depositions.

4 MR. KLAYMAN: Yeah.

6 The time is 9:36 a.m.
7 (Recess.)
8 THE VIDEOGRAPHER: Back on the record. The
9 time is 9:46 a.m.
10 MR. KRESS: We're back on?
11 Just for the record, as you know, there's a
12 lot of litigation between Judicial Watch and Larry
13 Klayman other than this. I think Mr. Fitton's
14 concern and hesitancy is that, you know, concern
15 that this may be directed at other litigation that's
16 pending or even contemplated. So that's the reason
17 for the hesitation here, and we would ask you to try
18 to direct the questions to the issues at -- you
19 know, that are in this litigation.
20 MR. KLAYMAN: I appreciate that, and
21 Mr. Kress and the Judicial Watch's people you --

1 to. That's helpful. I'm not here to be
2 provocative. I'm not here to get into collateral
3 stuff, but you've maintained that I'm a public
4 figure and you've maintained I have to show malice
5 or maliciousness, so these issues bear on that, and
6 I don't intend to get far afield on that.
7 MR. KRESS: Okay.
8 MR. KLAYMAN: And I don't intend to get
9 personal or be provocative here. I just want to get
10 answers to the questions.
11 MR. KRESS: Okay. Is there a question
12 pending, or do you want to reask the last question?
13 MR. KLAYMAN: Let's see what the last
14 question was.
15 (The reporter read the record as
16 requested.)

4 Q This is a separate case from other cases,
5 correct?
6 A I consider it to be all of a piece, but
7 legally it is a separate case.

9 piece?
10 A Litigation like the other litigation you
11 have is harassing.

12 heart of his threatened litigation. I'm not getting

15 Q You have to answer the question,
16 Mr. Fitton.
17 MR. KRESS: If it is --

5 malice.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, you know, I'm not
7 Lenin, okay.

9 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not Lenin, okay? This is
10 not post-Soviet Russia where any reference to
11 Communist leaders for a while was stricken, okay? I
12 am the founder of Judicial Watch. Everybody knows
13 it. No one's ever refuted it. Yet -- and I did a
14 lot at Judicial Watch. It's all over the media, you
15 can find it on Google, yet there's no reference to
16 Larry Klayman. That shows malice.
17 MR. KRESS: It shows malice to omit you
18 from a book?

3 answers to these questions.
4 MR. KRESS: All right. If you could

6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7 Q During the time that -- after I left
8 Judicial Watch, you actually had conversations with
9 television networks, such as CNN, and told them not
10 to put me on TV, correct?
11 MR. KRESS: Again, I think we're dealing
12 with other -- we can't use this as a springboard for
13 other litigation. I think that's the -- the concern
14 here.
15 MR. KLAYMAN: That's the point is that, you
16 know, you've made a claim that I have to show
17 maliciousness here despite the fact that the libel
18 that occurred was libel per se. Okay. When you
19 accuse somebody of a crime, that's libel per se of
20 committing a crime. But you've made that claim, so
21 I'm entitled to get into these areas.
22 MR. KRESS: We believe that the law does

2 threatening other litigation about this, I don't
3 think it's fair to use this deposition as a
4 springboard or a ground for other -- for other
5 litigation.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm here only on this -- on
7 this case.
8 MR. KRESS: Will you stip- -- are you
9 willing to stipulate on the record that none of
10 this -- well, I don't know if you can really do that
11 because you can't unlearn something. I mean, you
12 said you're going to move on and the next question
13 is still on the same topic.
14 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not dealing with the book
15 anymore. I'm dealing with whether or not he told
16 networks to keep me off the air after I left
17 Judicial Watch.

19 Q Answer the question, Mr. Fitton.
20 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object to the
21 relevancy.

6 things -- whether Mr. Fitton said negative things
7 about me to members of Council for National Policy.
8 MR. KRESS: You're not suing Judicial Watch

12 me --

14 MR. KLAYMAN: -- and that Judicial Watch
15 does.

1 MR. KLAYMAN: We're getting to that. I'm
2 getting into this right now. Okay? I don't
3 understand why he can't answer the question.
4 MR. KRESS: Because -- I don't know why --
5 I don't understand how it's relevant.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: You're raising the issue,
7 okay, of -- that I have to show maliciousness. So,
8 therefore, I'm allowed to show a pattern of
9 malicious conduct.

17 MR. KRESS: To state an objection to the
18 question related to discussions and even membership
19 in Council for National Policy, we believe there is
20 an associational privilege for that organization,
21 and the things that are said there privately are not
22 discoverable and are privileged.

1 MR. KLAYMAN: Under what basis do you take
2 that position? That allegedly Council for National
3 Policy says that what goes on there is confidential?
4 Just so you know, Mr. Kress, they're not a
5 government organization. They don't have a national
6 security clearance. They don't have any kind of
7 privilege at all one way or the other.
8 So they have no right, even if they sought
9 to assert it, which they wouldn't do, to thwart my
10 questioning in a deposition based on a supposition
11 that what's discussed there is confidential.
12 They're -- they're not an official organ- -- there's
13 no privilege that's recognized in the law for them,
14 and I'm entitled to ask this question, and to not
15 answer the question is to flout court process here.
16 MR. KRESS: I -- I don't believe we're
17 flouting court process. I understand, based on my
18 communications with my clients, that there is an
19 associational privilege and that, therefore, we
20 can't get into that. And I also believe that this
21 question is -- I think we're getting into more --
22 you're being very polite about it, but I think this

1 is -- the intent behind it is -- is to go beyond
2 this case, and it seems to be a harassing scope of
3 discovery. So that's our objection.
4 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, again, for the
5 record -- I'm not going to repeat it because you're
6 an experienced lawyer, and Mr. Orfanedes, who's
7 sitting here is, and Mr. Fitton's been around
8 lawyers for a long time -- is that, you know, I'm
9 entitled to show a pattern of malicious conduct, and
10 that is relevant to this case, and even the way you
11 deal with me in the context of this litigation is
12 relevant to that, not you but them. Okay?
13 So to me I feel like I'm being harassed
14 here because I can't do my job as a lawyer, and it's
15 running up the bill. It's running up time. And
16 these questions clearly are relevant. So you can
17 take your position and instruct him not to answer.
18 We can litigate that in front of a court, but I
19 would hope that that wouldn't be the case because I
20 view that to be harassing towards me.
21 MR. KRESS: All right. What's the question
22 before the witness?

2 Q The question is, did you tell people -- did
3 you say negative things about me, Larry Klayman, to
4 members of Council for National Policy?
5 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object both to the
6 form, to relevancy, and also on the basis of
7 privilege of that organization, his communications
8 with that organization, and instruct him not to
9 answer.

16 Q When I left Judicial Watch, you instructed
17 Judicial Watch's lawyer, David Barmak, to send me a
18 letter saying I could not make reference to the fact
19 that I was the founder of Judicial Watch, correct?
20 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object. That's --
21 communications with a lawyer, if they did take
22 place, are attorney-client privilege.

1 MR. KRESS: It's -- I think that that is a
2 question calling for attorney-client privileged
3 information.
4 MR. KLAYMAN: No, it does not, because I'm
5 talking about a communication with a third party.
6 There's no privilege of anything that was said or
7 done in and between Jim Peterson and Stephanie Luck.
8 Jim Peterson's not the lawyer of Stephanie Luck.
9 MR. KRESS: But if Jim Peterson reports to
10 Mr. Fitton something, then it is an attorney-client
11 privileged communication. If he -- if he reports
12 the substance --
13 MR. KLAYMAN: I didn't ask what was
14 reported. I asked what was communicated between Jim
15 Peterson and Stephanie Luck's attorneys.
16 MR. KRESS: That sounds like the same
17 question.
18 MR. KLAYMAN: No. It's to a third party.
19 That's not privileged.
20 MR. KRESS: Well, if -- if he overheard it,
21 if he was present, I would agree with you.

1 nothing to do with Stephanie Luck's attorneys,
2 assuming that the claim would be valid, which it's
3 not, there'd be some argument there, but not a valid
4 argument, but there's absolutely zero argument in a
5 communication with a third party. That's not an
6 attorney-client communication.
7 MR. KRESS: Okay. If -- if he overheard an
8 attorney -- if he overheard a communication with a
9 third party, I would agree with you, but if his
10 attorney is telling him something confidentially,
11 then that is attorney-client privileged, so --
12 MR. KLAYMAN: I asked the question in a
13 neutral way. We haven't gotten that far yet.

15 the question again? Maybe I -- maybe I misheard it.

1 Q In which litigation? That's a matter of
2 public record.
3 A There was litigation, I believe, related to
4 proceedings in Los Angeles about Special Order 7.

7 over the last 2 years in terms of our work in

3 Mr. Orfanedes has been involved in at the California

7 Q Are you claiming that she didn't go as a
8 representative of Judicial Watch?
9 A I'm claiming I do not know what she was
10 doing at the meeting.
11 Q Now, I've alleged in this lawsuit that she
12 made defamatory statements at that meeting, correct?
13 You're aware of that?
14 A I'm not quite sure if your lawsuit alleges
15 that directly, but, you know, I'm alleged (sic) that
16 there's an allegation of defamatory statements made
17 by Ms. Ruffley about you.
18 Q Is it your position, as president of
19 Judicial Watch, that Constance Ruffley is
20 responsible for those alleged defamatory statements
21 and not Judicial Watch?

11 inability to get legal assistance for her
12 litigation.
13 Q Has anyone else approached Judicial Watch
14 to participate in eligibility lawsuits or challenges
15 to President Obama?

18 investigate that issue. I'm not aware of -- I'm not

9 hour to San Marino to hear me speak and talk to me.
10 I got a very warm reception. After my presentation
11 people stood up and applauded.
12 This member of Judicial Watch approached me
13 and gave me her card. Her name is Constance Ruffley
14 and she is an office administrator for the Judicial
15 Watch in their Western Regional Headquarters at 2540
16 Huntington Drive, San Marino. She told me that she
17 used to work for the FBI and that she worked for the

19 initiated the discussion about Larry Klayman and
20 told me that she had heard that she is involved in

3 $25,000 in 96 hours as the cases in California and
4 Florida need to be filed within a week. I told her
5 that it was a hard sell. They wrote, it is now or
6 never, saying finally Obama team met their match,
7 dissing 4 years of my tireless work in the process
8 and in the end nothing was filed by Larry Klayman.
9 It is not clear what happened to all of the money
10 who raised, who got it.
11 Third paragraph, Ms. Ruffley actually
12 advised me that Mr. Klayman is not licensed in
13 California. She told me that he no longer works for
14 the Judicial Watch and that donors should know about
15 litigation in Ohio where he was convicted just
16 recently of not paying large amount in child
17 support. She provided a lot of other information.

1 A I don't know what that means.
2 Q You saw it in and around the time that I
3 notified Richard Driscoll that I had been allegedly
4 defamed, correct?
5 A When did you do that?
6 Q I show you what's been marked as Exhibit 3.
7 It's a composite exhibit. Does that refresh your
8 recollection? Take an opportunity and look at it.
9 A I don't remember this, but I mean -- I
10 guess it would have been around the first half of
11 2012. That would be my best guess at the time.
12 Q And it -- it would have been around the
13 time that Driscoll wrote this letter of March 5th,
14 2012 to me?
15 A Maybe.
16 Q Now --
17 A I have a generally -- I've been generally
18 aware of the article probably around that time.
19 I think I dropped the microphone. One
20 moment. Excuse me.
21 Q You are aware that I've never been
22 convicted of any crime, correct?

1 A I'm not aware of any conviction.
2 Q So when Ms. Ruffley said to Orly Taitz that
3 I was convicted recently of not paying a large
4 amount of child support, that's a false statement,
5 correct?
6 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
7 THE WITNESS: I'm not aware what
8 Ms. Ruffley told Ms. Taitz.
9 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
10 Q Well, you just testified that in and around
11 March 5th, 2012 you became aware of Exhibit 2 and
12 you reviewed Exhibit 2 and you saw what Taitz had
13 written that Orly -- that Ms. Ruffley had told her,
14 right?
15 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
16 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm just laying the
17 foundation.
18 THE WITNESS: I'm sorry, Larry. Can you
19 ask again.
20 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
21 Q You reviewed this document in around March
22 5th, Exhibit 2, you just testified to that.

2 I don't mean to be difficult, but I don't think he
3 said --
4 MR. KLAYMAN: All right. I'll go on what
5 was testified to.
6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7 Q When you saw what Ruffley -- when you saw
8 what Taitz said Ruffley said to her about my being
9 convicted of a crime, did you contact Ruffley and
10 tell her -- and find out what -- what had happened,
11 whether in fact Taitz was telling the truth?
12 A I don't recall any communications with
13 Ms. Ruffley about this issue at that time.
14 Q Ever?
15 A No.
16 Q There have never been communications on
17 this issue between Judicial Watch and Ruffley?
18 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
19 THE WITNESS: That's a different question.
20 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
21 Q All right. Answer that question.
22 A I don't know if it's a privileged issue or

1 not.
2 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object. If --
3 again, if you can answer without revealing
4 communications with your attorneys, please do. If
5 you can -- if the answer would require you to reveal
6 communications with your attorneys, then do not
7 answer.
8 THE WITNESS: I really don't remember about
9 communications between Judicial Watch and
10 Ms. Ruffley about this issue outside of privileged
11 communications.
12 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
13 Q Well, communications about this issue would
14 not be privileged. I'm not asking you the substance
15 of them yet. I'm asking you whether there were --
16 there was contact between Judicial Watch and Ruffley
17 over what Taitz says Ruffley told her about my being
18 convicted of a crime.
19 MR. KRESS: Can we get a time frame?
20 MR. KLAYMAN: Ever.
21 MR. KRESS: Ever? I think that brings into
22 it the attorney-client privilege. If you're talking

1 about --
2 MR. KLAYMAN: Let's say up to the point of
3 the suit in this case being filed.
4 MR. KRESS: Thank you.
5 THE WITNESS: I'm not aware of
6 communications between Judicial -- I'm not saying
7 they did not take place, but I don't recall any
8 communications between Ruffley and Judicial Watch,
9 that I can testify to, about this issue around that
10 time.
11 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
12 Q Did anyone at Judicial Watch, you or anyone
13 else, ever tell Ruffley to correct this purported
14 statement that I committed a crime?
15 A I'm not aware -- I don't remember if that
16 happened or not.
17 Q As the president, you would have been
18 informed of that, correct?
19 A Maybe.
20 Q This was an issue of potential liability,
21 so it would have concerned you, correct?
22 MR. KRESS: Objection, form.

2 THE WITNESS: I didn't see it as an issue
3 of liability.
4 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5 Q Was this issue discussed with the Board of
6 Directors, meaning with Mr. Orfanedes and also
7 Mr. Farrell and you?
8 MR. KRESS: Before the lawsuit was filed?
9 MR. KLAYMAN: Before the lawsuit was filed.
10 MR. KRESS: Thank you.
11 THE WITNESS: I have --
12 MR. KRESS: I will object to the extent if
13 there are communications with Mr. Orfanedes as
14 counsel.
15 THE WITNESS: I have no memory of anything
16 about this article beyond the impression that there
17 was a controversy and that Connie said that she did
18 not say what Orly Taitz attributed to her. That's
19 what -- that's my memory of what happened. That's
20 my memory at least prelitigation.
21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22 Q So there was communication between you and

2 Watch, and Ruffley over this statement that I just
3 read to you?
4 MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
5 THE WITNESS: No, that was not my
6 testimony.
7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8 Q So, therefore, any such communication would
9 have had to occur after the litigation?
10 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
11 THE WITNESS: I do not recall how I gained
12 that information about -- or where that memory comes
13 from, whether it was from a privileged communication
14 or -- or anything else.
15 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
16 Q You are aware that Ms. Ruffley has sworn --
17 sworn to an affidavit in this case where she says
18 she doesn't remember whether she made that statement
19 or not?
20 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
21 THE WITNESS: I don't remember her saying
22 that, but I don't deny that she said it.

6 THE WITNESS: I don't know.
7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8 Q You are aware that I had asked your lawyer,
9 Richard Driscoll -- let's turn back to Exhibit 3 --
10 to correct that statement, and let's turn to the
11 second-to-last page of Exhibit 3 wherein I send an
12 e-mail on February 23rd, 2012 at 10:24 a.m. ?
13 A One second.
14 MR. KRESS: He's not there.
15 THE WITNESS: I'm getting there. Hold on.
16 This is Exhibit 3?
17 MR. KRESS: That's it.
18 THE WITNESS: Okay. I'm on --

1 you, Larry, and I gave him my phone number.
2 You've seen that before, haven't you, this
3 e-mail, before today?
4 A I don't remember seeing any of this, no.
5 Q And there's a string e-mail here,
6 Mr. Driscoll's coming back at 11 a.m. on the same
7 day, I attempted to contact you, but it went
8 unanswered and the message box was full. Will be in
9 witness interview for remainder of the day.
10 Then at 11:03 a.m. I wrote back to
11 Driscoll, let's talk later. In the meantime, thanks
12 for advising Judicial Watch and Ruffley what I
13 informed you about. I will explain more when we
14 talk. It's over the Obama citizenship issue and
15 Ruffley is out making false statements about me and
16 my personal life, et cetera. I have a record of
17 what was said. Best, Larry.
18 In and around that time period, February
19 23rd, you were contacted by Driscoll, correct?
20 A I don't remember.
21 Q And then Driscoll writes back at 12:54 p.m.
22 on February 23rd, "I have no information regarding

1 your assertions and concede nothing, Richard
2 Driscoll."
3 Does that refresh your recollection as to
4 whether you talked to Driscoll about this?
5 MR. KRESS: Again, whether you talked to
6 him is not privileged, and I think that might -- I
7 think he's at this point just looking for whether
8 you talked to him, which is not privileged.
9 THE WITNESS: I've testified previously
10 about the nature of my recollection about this
11 issue, and I don't remember communications with my
12 attorney about this issue or these e-mail
13 communications that you're showing me here or this
14 letter.

18 Q Flip it over two pages going in reverse.
19 Friday, February 24th, 2012, at 10:24 a.m.,
20 "Rich" -- do you see that?
21 A Yes.
22 Q -- "is there a time today when you are free

1 to speak? Have you communicated with your clients,
2 Judicial Watch, Fitton, et al.? This matter is
3 serious and much damage has been done through Connie
4 Ruffley, Fitton, and others, individually and on
5 behalf of Judicial Watch. And, this is not the only
6 recent instance where I have been defamed and held
7 in a false light in the last few months. I will
8 explain when we talk."
9 And then I don't need to read the next
10 paragraph, but "Let me know. Rather than just
11 filing suit, I am attempting to discuss having your
12 clients mitigate the damage and to try to resolve
13 matters if we can. Sincerely, Larry Klayman."
14 Does that refresh your recollection as to
15 whether you discussed with Mr. Driscoll my request
16 to have Judicial Watch mitigate the damage?
17 A I have a vague recollection of the weird
18 paragraph you wrote, but I don't remember beyond
19 anything what we're talking about.
20 Q You just remember something about French
21 and mademoiselle?
22 A Yeah, it's something weird, so.

1 Q But you don't remember anything dealing
2 with potential liability for Judicial Watch?
3 A As there is no liability for Judicial
4 Watch, nor do I -- nor do I see any currently, it's
5 not surprising I don't have any memory of it.
6 Q Let's look at Mr. Driscoll's letter.
7 A First page?
8 Q "Dear Mr. Klayman" -- this is March 5th --
9 "this firm represents Judicial Watch, Inc. relating
10 to the above-referenced matter. Through a series of
11 e-mails and again during our conversation" -- I
12 speak French -- "on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 you
13 advanced vague and unsupported allegations that
14 Judicial Watch , it's President Tom Fitton and an
15 employee are participants in a conspiracy to defame
16 and disparage you based on the recent indictment
17 handled down in Ohio. To date, you have produced no
18 evidence to support these truly outrageous
19 allegations. As I stated to during our
20 conversation, Judicial Watch did not authorize,
21 make, or participate in making any statements
22 regarding your indictment for criminal nonsupport.

Page 95
1 For this reason, it's not necessary for Judicial
2 Watch to take any action or clarify or correct the
3 statements of others."
4 Does that refresh your recollection as to
5 your discussions with Rich Driscoll over whether or
6 not Judicial Watch had potential liability here for
7 what Constance Ruffley was -- purportedly said to
8 Orly Taitz?
9 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
10 You can answer.
11 THE WITNESS: I dont' -- I still don't
12 recall discussions with Mr. Driscoll about this
13 matter at that time.
14 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15 Q Last paragraph, what Mr. Driscoll wrote,
16 you take to mean that Connie Ruffley's the one that
17 should have been sued in this case and not Judicial
18 Watch, correct?
19 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
20 THE WITNESS: No.
21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22 Q Let's go to the second page. Richard --

Page 96
1 A We're still on the same exhibit?
2 Q Yeah.
3 Your letter of today makes no sense, and
4 amounts only to posturing. Mrs. Ruffley, on her own
5 and on behalf of Fitton, the board of directors at
6 Judicial Watch and other related clients, published
7 to the world that I have been convicted of a crime
8 and could not enter cases in California, among other
9 false and misleading statements and torts. Given
10 your clients lack of good faith in trying to
11 mitigate their damage and their continuing "state of
12 denial," there is little point in showing our cards,
13 so to speak, to you.
14 We don't need to read that.
15 Please report all of this to the insurance
16 carrier. The so-called Ruffley matter is not the
17 only offending matter that involves Fitton and your
18 other related clients in recent past. Please govern
19 yourself accordingly.
20 Does that refresh your recollection as to
21 your conversations, whether you had conversations
22 over the substance of what Connie Ruffley

1 purportedly communicated to Orly Taitz with Richard
2 Driscoll?
3 A No.
4 Q Do you know whether or not anyone else at
5 Judicial Watch had such conversations?
6 A No.
7 Q You do know the difference between being
8 indicted and being convicted?
9 A Yes.
10 Q What's the difference?
11 A An indictment is a -- a conviction is a
12 finding by a judge or a jury of criminal conduct.
13 An indictment is a -- is an allegation or a filing
14 by a prosecutor or a court alleging criminal
15 conduct. I guess one is an allegation and one is a
16 finding of, I guess, fact. I don't know.
17 Q And you are aware that in the United States
18 people who are indicted are innocent until proven
19 guilty?
20 A I'm aware that's a legal principle.
21 Q So you're saying that if you're indicted by
22 the government, that means you're guilty?

1 A I recall Alan Dershowitz once saying, and I
2 was intrigued by it, that if we're indicting
3 innocent people all the time, we've got a real
4 problem, so it's fair for most people to conclude
5 that people who are indicted probably are guilty,
6 and if they're -- if we're, as I said, indicting
7 regular innocent people all the time, then we've got
8 a real problem.
9 Q You have great faith in the American
10 government, don't you?
11 MR. KRESS: Objection to form and
12 relevancy.
13 THE WITNESS: I don't know what you mean by
14 American government.
15 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
16 Q Well, you always believe what the
17 government says, correct?
18 A No.
19 Q Okay. In fact, Judicial Watch, its mission
20 is to promote and investigate unethical conduct in
21 government, correct?
22 A Our mission is to -- not to promote, but to

1 investigate unethical conduct in government.
2 Q And to prosecute?
3 A Prosecute, we use that word as well, yeah.
4 Q And that was in fact a mission statement
5 that I created when I was at Judicial Watch,
6 correct?
7 A I don't recall you creating the mission
8 statement that -- referencing prosecuting government
9 corruption, but that was a mission statement that
10 was used during your tenure at Judicial Watch.
11 Q So the point being is that the government
12 is not always right, correct?
13 A That is correct.
14 Q And the government doesn't always act
15 ethically, correct?
16 A That is correct.
17 Q And, in fact, particularly during the
18 Clinton years, it acted unethically on a number of
19 occasions, correct?
20 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
21 THE WITNESS: I don't know what you mean by
22 government, but government officials act

1 unethically. They have during the Clinton years,
2 yes.
3 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4 Q And, in fact, during the Clinton years, you
5 may recall that sometimes people that should have
6 been indicted weren't indicted because they were
7 close to the Clintons?
8 A I -- I drew those conclusions.
9 Q Or the Clintons themselves, you had the
10 conclusion that they should have been indicted for
11 crimes, correct?
12 A Yes.
13 Q And you still have that opinion?
14 A Oh, yes.
15 Q Okay. And there were people who were
16 indicted, such as Nolanda Hill, Ron Brown's
17 girlfriend, that were probably indicted for
18 political reasons, correct?
19 A Yes, that's true.
20 Q So the government frequently perverts the
21 concept of who they indict, correct?

2 THE WITNESS: I don't -- I don't know if
3 frequently is the right word to use, but that can
4 happen in my -- in my opinion, that can happen.
5 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
6 Q So, consequently, the fact that I was
7 indicted doesn't mean that I was guilty of any
8 crime, correct?
9 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
10 You can answer.
11 THE WITNESS: Based on my understanding,
12 you probably were guilty of the crimes alleged in

16 A Just a review of the indictment.

1 Q What -- what business is it of you whether
2 or not I pay child support for my children?
3 A I think that's a privilege issue.
4 Q It's not a privilege issue.
5 MR. KRESS: Is it -- you're asking him what
6 business is it of him personally?
7 MR. KLAYMAN: In any respect.
8 MR. KRESS: Him personally or Judicial
9 Watch?
10 MR. KLAYMAN: In any respect. Let's take
11 personally first.
12 MR. KRESS: All right. I don't think
13 that's -- I think you can answer that, if you're
14 able to, if you have any personal interest in his
15 child support issues.
16 THE WITNESS: You've personally accused me
17 of misconduct, so I guess there would be a
18 personal -- I didn't really have a personal issue --
19 well, I didn't have a personal issue as it relates
20 to your misconduct in your Ohio litigation.
21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22 Q So you wanted to try to dig up dirt on me

1 because I accused you of misconduct; that's what
2 you're saying, correct?
3 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4 And, again, if this deals with any
5 attorney-client privileged information or work
6 product in other litigation -- all right. I think
7 we -- I need to step out for a second. Actually,
8 could we take a break for just, like, 5 minutes?
9 THE VIDEOGRAPHER: Going off the record.
10 The time is 11:05 a.m.

16 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17 Q Mr. Fitton, have you ever been indicted for
18 an alleged crime?
19 MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
20 THE WITNESS: No.
21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22 Q So, therefore, you've never been convicted

1 of a crime, correct?
2 A No.
3 Q If someone accused you of being indicted
4 and convicted of a crime, you would want to correct
5 that in the public record, wouldn't you?
6 A It depends on the source.
7 Q If someone accused you of being convicted
8 of a crime and that was on an internet site that's
9 widely viewed, that could harm your reputation,
10 correct?
11 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.
12 THE WITNESS: Maybe.
13 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14 Q It could harm your activities, your
15 effectiveness in your activities, correct?
16 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
17 THE WITNESS: Maybe.
18 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19 Q That's a serious matter, isn't it, if
20 someone was to accuse you of committing a crime?
21 That would be serious in your mind, wouldn't it?
22 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

1 THE WITNESS: Depends on the source.
2 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3 Q Suppose it was a lawyer who was involved in
4 eligibility lawsuits?
5 A You know, that's nonsensical, that
6 question. Suppose what was a lawyer?
7 Q Let's back up. Suppose -- Judicial Watch
8 is widely liked in the conservative community,
9 correct?
10 A I mean, that's a question I can't testify
11 to under oath. That's crazy.
12 Q Based on your experience. You're
13 president.
14 A Again, I don't understand the question.
15 Q Judicial Watch --
16 A I can't testify -- you're asking -- you're
17 asking me to testify under oath about the popularity
18 of Judicial Watch in an ill-defined community. I
19 have no idea what you mean or how any normal person
20 could testify to that.
21 Q Judicial Watch has lots of supporters among
22 conservatives, correct?

1 A Again, this is a waste of time.
2 MR. KRESS: If you're able to answer the
3 question, answer it. If it's --
4 THE WITNESS: I can't answer the question.
5 MR. KRESS: Okay.
6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7 Q Judicial Watch has a conservative
8 orientation; does it not?
9 A Yes.
10 Q If Judicial Watch was to make a statement
11 that was published to the conservative community
12 that I committed a crime, based on your experience,
13 that could do a lot of damage, couldn't it?
14 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
15 THE WITNESS: I have no idea.
16 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17 Q It would do some damage, correct?
18 A I have no idea.
19 Q So it would be the same as saying Larry
20 Klayman just won an NSA lawsuit, it's no different
21 in saying that as saying Larry Klayman is also
22 convicted of a crime?

2 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3 Q Based on your experience?
4 A I don't -- I don't understand your
5 question.
6 Q What I'm saying is, is that you wouldn't
7 want someone to publish -- strike that.
8 You wouldn't want Judicial Watch to make a
9 statement that you committed a crime, as president
10 of Judicial Watch, and put that on a web site, would
11 you?
12 A This is just -- this is nonsensical. I
13 don't even -- I don't understand the question. This
14 line of questioning is not -- not possible for me to
15 follow in any way that would allow me to testify to
16 a court.
17 Q Bottom line is, because the statement that
18 was purportedly made by Connie Ruffley to Orly Taitz
19 that then was published on a web site was made about
20 me, you, Thomas Fitton, really didn't care?
21 A I don't understand your question.
22 Q You -- you didn't feel any obligation to

1 correct it?
2 A I don't understand your question.
3 Q You didn't feel any obligation because you
4 wanted to damage me?
5 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
6 THE WITNESS: Again, your question's
7 incomprehensible.
8 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
9 Q And, in fact, you instructed Ruffley to
10 make that statement, didn't you?
11 MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
12 THE WITNESS: No.
13 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
14 Q But you've never disclaimed responsibility
15 for it, have you?
16 A Whoa. Whoa. I did not instruct Connie
17 Ruffley to make any statement to Orly Taitz as
18 alleged in Exhibit 2 or written about in Exhibit 2.
19 Q Once you learned of that statement, you
20 didn't tell her to correct it, though, did you?
21 A I said I have no memory of the event at the
22 time, other than what I testified to.

1 Q You just testified that you've seen the
2 indictment from the Cuyahoga County criminal court
3 with regard to me. You did review the public record
4 with regard to what was going on in Cleveland with
5 regard to child support and indictments and such,
6 correct?
7 A I don't understand how I can answer this
8 question without privilege issues popping up.
9 MR. KRESS: He's asking if you read it
10 individually.
11 THE WITNESS: I still don't understand how
12 I can answer this question without privilege issues.
13 MR. KRESS: Did you review it -- I think
14 the act of reading it --
15 MR. KLAYMAN: Please don't give him
16 testimony. Don't give him testimony.
17 MR. KRESS: I'm trying to --
18 THE WITNESS: Okay. My answer is I cannot
19 answer this question without -- my understanding,
20 based on my lawyer's repeated instructions
21 implicating privileges that I don't want to
22 implicate.

2 Q Well, I'm not asking you with regard to
3 lawyers. I'm saying did -- you did review the
4 public record of that criminal proceeding, correct,
5 before today?
6 A I don't know what you mean by public
7 record.
8 Q Docket sheet, pleadings.
9 A Yes.
10 Q And when did you review it?
11 A I reviewed it recently because, if I recall
12 correctly, it was part of the Motion for Summary
13 Judgment in our case, and I don't recall when or if
14 I had reviewed it prior to that review.
15 Q What leads you to believe that I should
16 have been convicted --
17 A Based on my --
18 Q -- for nonpayment of child support?
19 A Well, it seemed to me you effectively pled
20 out by paying the alleged moneys and the indictment
21 being removed, so that to me was not technically a
22 plea agreement but certainly looked like an

1 admission of guilt.
2 Q Where did you learn that?
3 MR. KRESS: Again, objection if the source
4 is your attorney. If there's some other source, you
5 can answer.
6 THE WITNESS: I related -- reviewed it
7 related to the summary judgment proceeding or the
8 summary judgment papers that were filed in this
9 litigation.
10 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11 Q Well, according to what Ms. Taitz wrote,
12 what was being published about me coming through
13 Ms. Ruffley was based on the public record, correct,
14 what I just read you?
15 A I don't understand. You have to answer
16 (sic) that question again because it's -- I don't
17 have any memory of this article other than that it
18 was an article that was published.
19 Q Yeah, let me read you the part here in
20 Exhibit 2.
21 Ms. Ruffley actually advised me Larry
22 Klayman is not licensed in California and she told
Case 1:13-cv-20610-CMA Document 89-3 Entered on FLSD Docket 03/17/2014 Page 439 of

1 me that he no longer works with the Judicial Watch
2 and that donors should know about litigation in
3 Ohio, where he was convicted just recently of not
4 paying large amount in child support. She provided
5 a lot of other information. I will publish only
6 what is a public record. I'm not publishing
7 anything that is not in public record.
8 So, according to what Ms. Taitz, Ruffley
9 told her that she came to this conclusion from
10 reviewing the public record, correct?
11 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
12 You can answer if you -- if you're able.
13 THE WITNESS: I don't understand your
14 question.
15 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
16 Q Well, the public record has never shown a
17 conviction for Larry Klayman for nonpayment of child
18 support, correct?
19 A I don't know. I mean, if you essentially
20 pay the -- the moneys that were result of the
21 indictment and the indictment being removed, that to
22 me is effectively an admission of guilt, so

1 conviction or admission of guilt, I think it's true
2 enough.
3 Q Okay. So -- so you're endorsing what
4 Ruffley told Taitz, that I was convicted?
5 A I don't know what --
6 MR. KRESS: Objection, form.
7 THE WITNESS: I do not know what Ruffley
8 told Taitz other than my general impression that she
9 did not say that you were indicted -- or you were
10 convicted.
11 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
12 Q How did you get that if you never talked to
13 her?
14 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
15 THE WITNESS: I testified previously about
16 my impressions.
17 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
18 Q So you're just kind of divining that
19 Ruffley didn't say these things?
20 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
22 Q You're making this up?

2 THE WITNESS: I've had previous testimony
3 on this. I'm not going over it again.
4 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
5 Q Are you aware that I was divorced from
6 Ms. Luck in Virginia?
7 MR. KRESS: If you're aware through sources
8 other than your lawyers, you can answer.
9 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
10 Q In Fairfax, Virginia?
11 A What is -- what is going on here with this
12 questioning? What is this about?
13 MR. KRESS: I don't -- I don't know if it
14 has any relevancy, but if you know of the loca- --
15 it could lead to -- well --
16 THE WITNESS: This is just -- this is -- I
17 mean, you have time to kill before lunch and is this
18 why we're just asking questions? I don't know the
19 testimony is relevant to this litigation that's
20 outstanding that we ought to be getting to, but
21 evidently we're not because of questions like this.
22 MR. KRESS: With this one, just answer it

1 if you know the location was Fairfax, Virginia.
2 THE WITNESS: Okay, my concern isn't about
3 my ability to answer questions. My concern is about
4 the questions being harassing and for an improper
5 purpose and just wasting my time and the court's
6 time and further showing the nonmeritorious nature
7 of this litigation. So the question's for an
8 improper purpose that I can answer I still don't
9 want to have to deal with.
10 MR. KRESS: I'll note an objection for the
11 record, but I think this is one -- I think this is
12 one we can answer.
13 THE WITNESS: I'm aware that you were
14 divorced in Virginia.
15 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
16 Q You're aware that, given the fact you've
17 apparently reviewed public record documents, that
18 there's a case called Hartman v. Hartman coming out
19 of family court in Fairfax that says when you're
20 denied your children, that you have a defense to
21 paying child support?
22 MR. KRESS: Objection to form, if you know.

2 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3 Q So you didn't bother to read that part of
4 the public record?
5 A Didn't bother, I object to that. I don't
6 know what that means.
7 Q Didn't take time to.
8 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
9 You can answer.
10 THE WITNESS: I -- I don't have an answer.
11 It's a crazy question.
12 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
13 Q So you didn't bother to find out whether I
14 had a defense to this indictment; you just think I'm
15 guilty?
16 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.
17 THE WITNESS: Again, you know, this is just
18 an argument. I'm not -- I'm not engaging in an
19 argument in a deposition.
20 THE VIDEOGRAPHER: Excuse me, Mr. Fitton.
21 Could you move your microphone up?

2 argument in a deposition. These are not questions.
3 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4 Q Is it your position, Mr. Fitton, that you
5 make the Rules of Civil Procedure, that you decide
6 what they are, the rules of evidence?
7 MR. KRESS: Please, let's try to get back
8 on track here. That's -- that's not a viable
9 question.
10 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, that's what he's
11 saying. He's saying I'll do what I want. I'm
12 trying to figure out what his state of mind is here
13 because, you know, it bears on -- on whether these
14 questions should be answered or not. Does he have a
15 legal reason why he's not answering them? He just
16 doesn't like the Rules of Civil Procedure or the
17 rules of evidence?
18 MR. KRESS: I think he's concerned about it
19 being harassing, and --
20 MR. KLAYMAN: This is the heart -- this is
21 the heart of the issue of this case.
22 MR. KRESS: The heart of the issue is

Page 119
1 whether he read the case of Hartman v. Hartman?
2 MR. KLAYMAN: No, the issue is whether or
3 not, as you've put it, Judicial Watch, in pleadings
4 whether or not what Ruffley said was substantially
5 true or not, okay, so I'm probing on that --
6 MR. KRESS: Okay.
7 MR. KLAYMAN: -- and these questions are
8 legitimate.
9 MR. KRESS: You're ask- -- what was -- if
10 you could restate the most recent substantive
11 question.
12 MR. KLAYMAN: Can you please read it back.
13 MR. KRESS: Probably the one before whether
14 he understood the civil rules.
15 (The reporter read the record as
16 follows.)
17 "Question: So you didn't bother to find
18 out whether I had a defense to this
19 indictment; you just think I'm guilty?"
20 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object to the
21 form.
22 THE WITNESS: The answer's no.

1 MR. KRESS: Okay.
2 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
3 Q So your position is that if Larry Klayman
4 is alleged to have done it, he must be guilty?
5 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
6 THE WITNESS: I don't understand what it
7 is. What do you reference by it?
8 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
9 Q I didn't use the word "it."
10 MR. KRESS: I think you did.
11 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
12 Q My question was, your position is that if
13 Larry Klayman was accused of a crime, he must be
14 guilty? There's no it in that sentence.
15 A That's not my position.
16 Q So, therefore, once you learned that
17 Ms. Ruffley had allegedly made this statement, you
18 should have done a due diligence and found out
19 whether or not she did, and if she did make that
20 statement, you should have had it corrected,
21 correct?
22 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

2 what I did. Seems to me that our lawyer speaks for
3 Judicial Watch here and evidences the due diligence
4 that Judicial Watch performed related to your
5 ridiculous assertions here.
6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
7 Q Have you made any claim to Rich Driscoll's
8 insurance carrier as to whether or not he's
9 committed malpractice by saying that they don't
10 have any -- that Judicial Watch doesn't have any
11 interest in correcting what I said occurred?
12 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.
13 You can answer.
14 THE WITNESS: I don't understand how to
15 answer that question.
16 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17 Q Let me make it -- let me make it more
18 simple. I'm break it down. I asked Rich Driscoll
19 to -- to have Judicial Watch correct this statement
20 about me being convicted. You're aware of that?
21 A No.

1 3, and documents related to that, don't relate to my
2 asking to have that alleged false statement
3 corrected?
4 A I don't have any awareness outside of this
5 litigation or this document that you've shown me.
6 Q All right. Let me ask you a simple
7 question.
8 A This is the first time I recall seeing this
9 document.
10 Q Have you -- have you put Rich Driscoll on
11 notice or his carrier that by sending this letter
12 he's been negligent?
13 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form. I think
14 you can answer.
15 THE WITNESS: I don't see how I can answer
16 a question like that.
17 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
18 Q It's whether you put him on notice of
19 potential liability for negligence in not having

1 aware of any liability now, despite this wasteful
2 litigation.
3 Q If Constance Ruffley had made this
4 statement, and let's assume that she made the
5 statement that I was convicted of a crime, as
6 president of Judicial Watch, would you have asked
7 her to have it corrected with Ms. Taitz?
8 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
9 THE WITNESS: I don't know.
10 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
11 Q It calls for yes or no.
12 A It doesn't call for anything other than my
13 response, which is I don't know.
14 Q Look at the rest of the statement here that
15 Taitz says Ruffley made to her.
16 A This is Exhibit 2 again?
17 Q Yeah. "Ms. Ruffley actually advised me
18 that Larry Klayman is not licensed in California,
19 she told me that he no longer works with the
20 Judicial Watch and that donors should know about
21 litigation in Ohio."
22 Donors should know about litigation in

1 Ohio? Why should donors know about litigation in
2 Ohio?
3 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4 THE WITNESS: I don't know. I didn't make
5 this statement. I don't know if Connie made this
6 statement, so I don't know what it references.
7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8 Q Now, if this was Judicial Watch and someone
9 accused you of a crime that you didn't -- you
10 weren't convicted of, would you want donors to know
11 about it?
12 A I don't know what that means. As I said
13 earlier, it depends on the source.
14 Q Whatever source, would you want donors to
15 hear that you were convicted of a crime, as
16 president of Judicial Watch?
17 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
18 THE WITNESS: I don't know how to answer
19 the question other than how I've previously answered
20 it.

2 MR. KRESS: Let's keep these in order.
3 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
4 Q Have you ever seen Plaintiff's Exhibit 4?
5 A I think I may have.
6 Q When did you see it?
7 A It may have been around the time of the --
8 I don't know. I don't know when I saw it. I -- I
9 have it. I can't speculate as to when I saw it.
10 Q After the litigation was filed in this
11 case?
12 A I recall seeing it in the time frame around
13 the time I saw this other article, Exhibit 2,
14 perhaps.
15 Q How many times have you talked to
16 Mrs. Taitz?
17 A Other than that one conversation, none.
18 Q Yes. How many times have you exchanged
19 e-mails with Mrs. Taitz?
20 A Never. I'm not aware of any e-mails being
21 exchanged.
22 Q Are you aware of anyone by or on behalf of

1 Judicial Watch exchanging e-mails with Mrs. Taitz?
2 A I recall that I found an e-mail as it
3 relates to Mrs. Taitz, but I don't remember if that
4 was a communication with her.
5 Q Anything else?
6 A No. Oh, there may have been litigation --
7 Mrs. Taitz I think tried to intervene in Judicial
8 Watch NVRA litigation in Indiana, I think it was --
9 well, in Indiana or Ohio, and we opposed -- I know
10 we opposed her Motion for Intervention. So there
11 may have been communications between Judicial Watch
12 attorneys and Ms. Taitz on that -- on that
13 litigation issue with her intervention in our
14 litigation or her effort -- in an effort to
15 intervene.
16 Q Did you communicate with her in that
17 regard?
18 A No.
19 Q Who did?
20 A I don't know who did.
21 Q Show you what's been marked as Plaintiff's
22 Exhibit 5. Have you ever seen that, this document,

1 "An Open Letter to Orly Taitz, re: Defamatory
2 Statements," on a web site called The Birther
3 Report?
4 A No, I don't remember this.
5 Q I'll show you what's been marked as
6 Plaintiff's Exhibit 6. It's "When A Paper Terrorist
7 Meets A Paper Terrorist" is the title of it. Have
8 you ever seen that document?
9 A I don't remember seeing this.
10 Q I show you what's been marked as
11 Plaintiff's Exhibit 7, title of it is "An Open
12 Letter to Orly Taitz, re: Defamatory Statements."
13 Have you ever seen this document on Free Republic?
14 A You know, I recall vaguely, like, this kind
15 of article or argument or having seen something like
16 this, but I don't remember specific articles like
17 this.
18 Q Well, look at the comments of this article,
19 okay? As a general rule, people are reacting to
20 what Connie Ruffley said to Orly Taitz, correct, and
21 they're making negative remarks about me?
22 A Which article are you referencing, this

5 MR. KLAYMAN: All of them.
6 THE WITNESS: I don't know.
7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
8 Q It's dispersed throughout.
9 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object that it
10 probably speaks for itself.
11 MR. KLAYMAN: It does.
12 THE WITNESS: I don't see Connie's
13 statement here.
14 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
15 Q Well, my question is, were you concerned
16 that what Connie said could do damage to Larry
17 Klayman?
18 A No. I don't have any rec- -- I don't have
19 any information about what Connie said other than my
20 general impression, which I've testified to earlier.
21 Q Look at Plaintiff's Exhibit 8. Have you
22 ever seen this document?

10 A How many pages in?
11 Q -- starts with Bates No. 508 -- strike
12 that -- 505. Do you see the e-mail that was sent
13 from PJO -- that's Paul Orfanedes -- to Connie
14 Ruffley, dated August 28, 2012 at 4:03 p.m., copies
15 to you, Christopher Farrell, Steve Anderson, Susan
16 Prytherch. Subject, "Orly Taitz posting a Judicial
17 Watch invite to speak on her Website. "Connie,
18 we've had a couple of inquiries about this posting.
19 Can you make clear to Ms. Taitz or whomever is
20 responsible for the posting that she was invited by
21 UROC and not 'the Judicial Watch.' The posting also
22 needs to be corrected to avoid any further

2 Do you see that?
3 A Yes, I see that.
4 Q And then underneath it's Steve Anderson --
5 who is Steve Anderson?
6 A An employee of Judicial Watch.
7 Q And what are his job responsibilities in
8 and around that time period?
9 A Director of development.
10 Q Fund-raising, is that what that means?
11 A Yes.
12 Q It says, "I'm extremely" -- this is
13 apparently an e-mail or a posting by Orly Taitz. "I
14 am extremely proud, I just got a call from the
15 'Judicial Watch' and was asked to be a speaker at
16 their event 'Republicans United' on October 13th in
17 California."
18 What is this about? Explain to me the
19 context of this, these e-mail exchanges?
20 A I don't know what the -- I mean, other than
21 what it says, I don't know what the context is.

1 concerned that Orly Taitz said she was being invited
2 to a political event put on by Judicial Watch,
3 correct?
4 A I don't -- it says what it says. I don't
5 think your question represents the --
6 Q You were copied on it. You discussed this
7 at the time with Connie Ruffley?
8 A I don't have any memory of discussing this
9 with Connie Ruffley.
10 Q Who did you discuss it with?
11 A I don't have any memory of discussing this.
12 Q Do you have any memory of it, period?
13 A I don't know if I do or not. I don't think
14 I do.
15 Q In fact, based on the e-mail between Paul
16 Orfanedes and Connie Ruffley, Judicial Watch was
17 concerned that Ruffley had -- or that Orly Taitz was
18 claiming that Judicial Watch had invited her to a
19 UROC event, correct, and that's being represented on
20 the internet?
21 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
22 THE WITNESS: I think the e-mail -- I

1 can't -- as I don't have any independent
2 recollection of this e-mail or this issue, I cannot
3 address and testify to what Judicial Watch's
4 concerns are beyond the text of the e-mail.
5 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
6 Q In fact, Judicial Watch was concerned about
7 an internet posting on Taitz's web site that could
8 have implicated it in political activity, correct?
9 A I've testified previously as to what my --
10 what I'm able to testify to, so I don't know why
11 you're asking another question based on --
12 Q Well, the point is that when Judicial Watch
13 was involved, you were concerned with what Taitz was
14 posting on her web site, correct, you meaning
15 Judicial Watch?
16 A Referring back to the first answer I gave
17 you on this line of questioning, I don't have any
18 independent recollection of any concerns or this
19 issue, so I can't testify as to what Judicial
20 Watch's alleged concerns were. The text of the
21 e-mail speaks for itself.
22 Q But when Connie Ruffley allegedly makes a

1 statement that Larry Klayman committed a crime, you
2 really have no interest?
3 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.
4 THE WITNESS: I guess my testimony is what
5 it is on that area, so I don't know what else to say
6 about it. We're wasting everyone's time here.

9 statement?
10 MR. KRESS: Objection to form.

13 Q Let's come back to The Corruption
14 Chronicles. We said we'd come back to that. Ben
15 Shapiro ghost writ- -- ghost wrote that book at your
16 direction, correct?

1 questions. He's threatened litigation on this issue
2 and he's conducting discovery for an improper
3 purpose on litigation he's been threatening with us
4 on it. This is ridiculous and it's wasting
5 everyone's time.
6 MR. KRESS: What's the -- if you could
7 proffer the purpose for this line of questioning.
8 MR. KLAYMAN: The proper purpose -- I mean
9 the purpose is that I was written out of the history
10 of Judicial Watch because that was another method to
11 harm me.
12 MR. KRESS: I think --
13 THE WITNESS: That's a separate lawsuit
14 you're threatening. I'm not testifying about it.
15 MR. KRESS: Well, there's a book. We know
16 the book says whether or not you're there or not.
17 I -- I -- there's been multiple lawsuits and there's
18 still pending threatened lawsuits. I think we're
19 just getting, you know, beyond the scope of --
20 beyond the proper scope of the deposition here.
21 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, I've already stated why
22 it's a relevant question, because it bears on

1 malice. It bears on the animus towards me.
2 MR. KRESS: What -- what are you ultimately
3 looking for? Are you looking for --
4 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, why would any- -- why
5 would -- I don't need to testify here, okay. You
6 can ask me later what this is about if you want, but
7 the point is, is that to purposefully publish a book
8 which seeks to rewrite history, that claims credit
9 for things that I have done, bears on a state of
10 mind, a state of mind of malicious intent towards
11 me, and that's what I'm getting at.
12 MR. KRESS: Why don't you ask him did he
13 have malicious intent in not including you in the
14 book?
15 MR. KLAYMAN: I'll ask him what I want to
16 ask him.
17 MR. KRESS: I'm trying to --
18 MR. KLAYMAN: He won't have a memory for
19 that one. Okay. Let's move on.

21 Q You're refusing to answer the question. Do
22 you remember Peter Paul?

4 MR. KRESS: Let's -- let's try to -- are
5 you almost --
6 MR. KLAYMAN: Yeah, I am almost wrapping
7 up.
8 MR. KRESS: Let's try to wrap it up.
9 MR. KLAYMAN: I am trying to wrap it up.
10 THE WITNESS: Now he -- now he's trying to
11 get into questions relating to a pending bar
12 proceeding against him on his ethical misconduct as
13 found by a court, and now he's trying to get
14 testimony for, again, an improper purpose for
15 another proceeding. I'm not doing this.
16 MR. KRESS: What's the -- what's the
17 purpose for the relevancy of Mr. Paul?
18 THE WITNESS: I mean, I'm going to tell the
19 bar you're harassing a witness in a proceeding
20 against you if you want to proceed here. This is
21 ridiculous.

2 more?

5 MR. KLAYMAN: Yes. All this and that's
6 what we get.

8 Peter Paul.
9 MR. KLAYMAN: Certify it.

11 Q Do you know someone named Sandy Cobas?
12 A Again, there are three charges and three
13 cases before the bar in Washington, D.C., the
14 District of Columbia Bar. He's seeking testimony
15 related to that pending proceeding. I am not
16 testifying about it.
17 Q And, in fact, I have not been sanctioned by
18 the Bar. That matter is pending, correct?
19 MR. KRESS: But I think that's a concern
20 that goes --
21 THE WITNESS: Again, I'm not testifying
22 about -- my testimony is clear on the matter here.

1 I'm not testifying.
2 MR. KRESS: And I would add an objection
3 that, I mean, bar proceedings generally are
4 privileged.
5 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not asking about a bar
6 proceeding. He raised it.
7 MR. KRESS: Well, if these are -- if the
8 only relevancy is --
9 MR. KLAYMAN: Then he broke -- he broke the
10 confidentiality here and he just violated bar rules.
11 MR. KRESS: He's not a member of the bar,
12 for one thing, but I don't --
13 MR. KLAYMAN: He works for a legal
14 organization.
15 THE WITNESS: Okay. Well, the bar will
16 judge the appropriateness of this line of
17 questioning, I guess.
18 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
19 Q I didn't raise that. I just asked if you
20 knew Peter Paul.
21 MR. KLAYMAN: The fact that he would
22 violate bar rules to make a point, stick it to me, I

1 mean, is quite irrelevant here.
2 MR. KRESS: No one's trying to stick it to
3 you. We're just trying to get through the
4 deposition here. What -- what do you want to know
5 about Peter Paul if he does know Peter Paul?
6 THE WITNESS: This is litigation -- this is
7 a litigation he's sued us over. This is just a
8 rehash of it and it's pending bar. I'm not talking
9 about it.
10 MR. KLAYMAN: It bears on malice.
11 MR. KRESS: All right. Let's -- what's
12 that?
13 Well, the witness --
14 MR. KLAYMAN: Is he refusing to answer?
15 THE WITNESS: Yes, I'm refusing to answer.
16 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
17 Q Louise Benson --
18 A Again, I'm refusing to answer Louise
19 Benson, so now you've asked three questions on the
20 very three matters before -- pending before the bar
21 in the District of Columbia.
22 Q You just violated --

1 A And I'm not testifying about it, and I
2 consider this to be harassing related -- harassment
3 related to that bar investigation and that pending
4 hearing. And I'm a witness there, and you're just
5 seeking discovery improperly for that separate
6 proceeding and harassing me and trying to intimidate
7 me for participating, potentially, in that
8 proceeding. And I'm going to send a copy of this
9 deposition to the bar to alert them to this
10 misconduct.
11 Q Well, you've just violated bar rules again,
12 haven't you?
13 A And if the bar finds that I have, I will
14 deal with that then.
15 Q Are you engaging in the unauthorized
16 practice of law?
17 MR. KRESS: Objection. This is -- we're
18 getting to the point of harassment where we're
19 either going to have to terminate the deposition
20 or just --
21 MR. KLAYMAN: I didn't ask anything about
22 the bar. I just asked if he knew these people --

2 MR. KLAYMAN: I just asked if he knew these
3 people, and all I got was, you know, there's bar
4 proceedings pending against you and you've done
5 something wrong. Okay. That's inappropriate, Doug.
6 MR. KRESS: Do you have additional
7 questions?
8 BY MR. KLAYMAN:
9 Q Are you aware that I've filed a lawsuit in
10 Miami against Hugo Chavez on behalf of a Venezuelan?
11 A No. Outside of Judicial Watch?
12 Q Yes, after I left.
13 A No. I don't remember anything like that.
14 Q You are aware that before joining Judicial
15 Watch I had been up for a possible appointment as
16 U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida?
17 A I recall you telling me that, but beyond
18 that I don't know.
19 Q Okay. And then, in fact, Senator Connie
20 Mack, his office asked me if I wanted to be
21 considered to be a judge there?
22 A I don't --

4 A I don't remember you telling me that, or I
5 don't have independent knowledge of that either.
6 MR. KLAYMAN: I have no further questions.
7 I'm going to leave the deposition open in light of
8 the fact that he's refused to answer many questions.
9 We're going to have to get some court rulings on
10 that.
11 MR. KRESS: I understand your position.
12 MR. KLAYMAN: And I just want the record to
13 reflect that throughout this deposition, and it can
14 reflect itself, that I've been extremely respectful
15 to Mr. Fitton. I've not raised my voice. I've
16 simply asked questions and that he is refusing to
17 answer questions on his own even without your
18 instruction, and that creates the necessity of
19 having to go to the court to break the impasse.
20 MR. KRESS: We have a -- we have a record.
21 We have a video record, and if necessary we'll
22 address that.

1 other Judicial Watch, Inc. employees alleging that we,

2 on or about February 22nd, 2012, negligently,

8 judicial district, Florida, and elsewhere throughout

9 the United States and the world," unquote.

13 "indicted."

14 Q. In fact, you also told Orly Taitz, did you

15 not, whether or not you can remember using the word

16 "convicted" or "indicted," that this information that

17 you were providing to her should be given to Klayman's

18 donors. Correct?

19 A. What about Klayman's donors?

20 Q. You told Ms. Taitz, did you not, whether or

21 not you used the word "convicted" or "indicted," which

15 time.

16 The question is: This is a reprint of what

17 appeared on Orly Taitz's website on February 23rd,

18 MR. KLAYMAN: Third paragraph.

19 Q. "Ms. Ruffley actually advised me that Larry

20 Klayman is not licensed in California. She told me

21 that he no longer works with the Judicial Watch and

22 that donors should know about litigation in Ohio, where

23 he was convicted just recently of not paying large

24 amount in child support. She provided a lot of other

25 information. I will publish only what is in the public

1 record. I'm not publishing anything that is not in the

2 public record."

3 That's an accurate statement of what you told

4 Ms. Taitz. Correct?

5 A. I never said any -- no, it's not correct.

6 Because where it says that "donors should know about

7 litigation in Ohio."

8 Q. It says, "She provided a lot of other

9 information."

10 What other information did you provide to

11 Ms. Taitz?

12 A. The only other information that I provided is

13 that you are not licensed in the State of California.

14 I told her about the issue of the -- the child support.

15 And also there was the issue -- excuse me -- of a

16 lawsuit that was down in Florida.

17 Q. Was that an eligibility lawsuit for Michael

18 Dolz?

19 A. I don't remember.

20 Q. But it was an eligibility lawsuit. Correct?

21 A. I don't remember.

22 Q. Well, what was the subject matter of the

23 lawsuit?

24 A. Basically, that you had taken money for a

25 lawsuit and not performed.

1 Q. You offered information to Ms. Taitz about

2 this, did you not?

3 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object to the form.

4 You can answer.

5 THE WITNESS: I told Ms. Taitz only what could be

6 found on the Internet. I told her nothing else.

7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

8 Q. You told her what could be found in the public

9 record. Correct?

10 A. Correct.

11 Q. Did you say "Yes"?

12 A. Yes.

13 Q. And the public record would include court

14 files. Correct?

15 A. Well, as I found it on the Internet, it was

16 not in the court files. It was public information.

17 And she had the ability to look up those -- those

18 things on the Internet herself.

19 Q. And you gave her that information -- you

20 volunteered that information. She didn't ask you for

21 it. Correct?

22 A. Yes.

23 Q. And you did that because you were trying to

24 help Ms. Taitz?

25 A. No.

31
1 Q. You did that because you were trying to hurt

2 me, Larry Klayman. Correct?

3 A. No.

4 Q. So you just gave the information because it

5 came to your head in some kind of epiphany?

6 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.

7 You can answer.

8 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

9 Q. Is that the reason?

10 A. No.

11 Q. You did it because you thought it would curry

12 favor with the directors of Judicial Watch, Mr. Fitton

13 and Mr. Orfanedes --

14 A. Absolutely.

15 Q. -- to follow which had been adverse to me.

16 Correct?

17 A. No.

18 Q. Then why did you do it?

19 A. Because she asked me.

20 Q. You just told me you volunteered the

21 information. Which is right, she asked you or you

22 volunteered it?

23 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.

24 You can answer.

25 THE WITNESS: Would you mind repeating the

1 question again? Whether I volunteered it, or --

2 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

3 Q. You previously testified in this deposition

4 under oath that you volunteered the information in

5 this case.

6 A. Yes.

7 Q. That's correct, is it not?

8 A. That's because she asked me.

9 Q. What did she ask you?

10 A. She asked me if you were still with Judicial

11 Watch. And I told her no.

12 Q. But she didn't ask you about my children, and

13 she didn't ask you about whether I was licensed in

14 California, did she?

15 A. I did not provide her any information that

16 was not available on the Internet.

17 Q. But the question --

18 A. This was a completely private conversation

19 between the two of us, and it was not to be -- I did

20 not have any expectation of her putting it out there

21 on the web.

22 MR. KLAYMAN: Non responsive. Move to strike.

23 Q. In fact, she didn't ask you about my children,

24 and she didn't ask you about my being licensed in

25 California, did she?

33
1 A. No.

2 Q. And, in fact, I had already left Judicial --

3 in 2012, in February 2012, I had been gone from

4 Judicial Watch eight to nine years. Correct?

5 A. Could have been.

6 Q. So you didn't have any -- and you didn't have

7 any contact with me in those years, did you?

8 A. No.

9 Q. So you would have no way of knowing whether I

10 had become licensed in California or not when you said

11 that to Ms. Taitz. Correct?

12 A. I would know whether you were not licensed

13 because I -- anyone can go to the State Bar and look up

14 and plug in a name and see if that person is licensed

15 in California or not.

16 Q. But you hadn't done that before telling

17 Ms. Taitz that I was not licensed in California.

18 Correct?

19 A. Wrong. Because I did look it up, and you were

20 not licensed.

21 Q. When did you look it up? Afterwards? After

22 you had the conversation with Taitz?

23 A. Prior to that.

24 Q. Why did you bother to look it up?

25 A. Because I wanted to see if you had become

34
1 licensed at some point.

2 Q. And why was that?

3 A. Just because I wanted to know.

4 Q. Because you didn't want me representing anyone

5 with regard to eligibility, did you?

6 A. No.

7 Q. Because you wanted to try to hurt me.

8 Correct?

9 A. No.

10 Q. Then what business was it of yours?

11 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form.

12 You can answer.

13 THE WITNESS: Would you mind restating the

14 question properly?

15 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

16 Q. What business was it of yours whether I was

17 licensed in California or not?

18 MR. KRESS: I object to the form.

19 You can answer.

20 THE WITNESS: If I want to look up anyone, I

21 can -- there's nothing that prohibits me from looking

22 up someone's name in the State Bar.

23 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

24 Q. Then I'm asking you why you did it, then.

25 What caused you to do it?

35
1 MR. KRESS: Objection to the form. Asked and

2 answered.

3 You can answer it one more time.

4 THE WITNESS: Because I had looked it up several

5 years before, maybe once a year, something like that,

6 and this was just something that happened.

7 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

8 Q. Why bother looking it up if I'm not with

9 Judicial Watch anymore?

10 A. Why not?

11 Q. What caused you to look up any situation with

12 regard to my kids?

13 MR. KRESS: I object to the form.

14 You can answer.

15 THE WITNESS: It was just one of the things that

16 happened to pop up.

17 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

18 Q. In fact, Ms. Taitz [sic], you were aware that

19 I had been in litigation with Judicial Watch and its

20 directors before you met with Ms. Taitz on

21 February 22nd, 2012. Correct?

22 A. You addressed me as Ms. Taitz.

23 Q. Ms. Ruffley.

24 A. Restate the question, please.

25 Q. In fact, you knew at the time that you met

36
1 with Ms. Taitz on February 22nd, 2012 that I, Larry

2 Klayman, had been in various litigations with Judicial

3 Watch and its directors. Correct?

4 A. Yes.

5 Q. And you knew that we were adverse to each

6 other. Correct?

7 MR. KRESS: I object to the form.

8 You can answer.

9 THE WITNESS: Yes.

10 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

11 Q. And that was the basis for your looking up

12 whether I was licensed in California and in order to

13 be able to get information about my children. Correct?

14 MR. KRESS: I object to the form.

15 You can answer.

16 THE WITNESS: No.

17 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

18 Q. The Judicial Watch directors asked you to

19 track me, did they not?

20 A. No.

21 Q. You conveyed the information about my not

22 being licensed in California and the information that

23 you claimed pertains to my children to the directors

24 of Judicial Watch, though, didn't you?

25 A. No.

37
1 Q. You never talked to them about my being

2 licensed in California?

3 A. No.

4 Q. Or my children?

5 A. No.

6 Q. Why is it, then, that you gave this

7 information to Ms. Taitz?

8 MR. KRESS: I object to the form. Asked and

9 answered.

10 You can answer it one more time.

11 THE WITNESS: Well, I had an expectation of

12 privacy with Ms. Taitz. And, in fact, she said that

13 she was going to call me the next morning, and I've

14 never heard from her since. Well, except for when I

15 invited her to speak at UROC.

16 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

17 Q. And why did you have an expectation of

18 privacy?

19 A. Because the conversation was between she and

20 myself, and there weren't any other people around.

21 Q. But that doesn't answer the question.

22 Why did you give her the information, apart

23 from expectations of privacy?

24 MR. KRESS: I object to the form. Asked and

25 answered.

1 You can answer.

2 THE WITNESS: I still just had the expectation of

3 privacy that it would be just information between

4 herself and myself. I had no idea that she would have

5 ever put that up there on her website.

6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

7 Q. Why did you -- why did you give her the

8 information?

9 A. I --

10 Q. I'm not talking about expectations of privacy.

11 Why --

12 A. So that she could --

13 Q. -- did you give her the information?

14 A. So that she could look it up for herself.

15 Q. And why did you want her to look it up for

16 herself?

17 A. To make sure that what I said was correct.

18 Q. Ms. Ruffley, we will stay here for hours.

19 I will get an answer to this question. So you can

20 answer it now. Do you want to go two hours more on it?

21 I will ask it for two hours.

22 MR. KRESS: What question is before her?

23 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

24 Q. Why did you give her the information?

25 MR. KRESS: She just answered that question.

1 THE WITNESS: So that she -- I gave her the

2 information and told her where she could find it on --

3 excuse me. I didn't tell her where she could find it

4 on the web. But if she did a Google search, she would

5 have been able to find it.

6 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

7 Q. Why did you give her the information?

8 MR. KRESS: Maybe you can ask your question

9 differently. Because --

10 MR. KLAYMAN: No, she understands what I said.

11 She's highly educated. She has a college degree. She

12 was a legal secretary. She understands what I said.

13 I'm asking it the way I want to answer it -- ask it.

14 Q. Why did you give her the information?

15 MR. KRESS: Objection.

16 You can answer.

17 THE WITNESS: So that she could look it up for

18 herself and make sure that the information was correct.

19 I believe in giving correct information, not lies or

20 innuendos or anything else.

21 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

22 Q. Why did you give her the information?

23 A. I just told you --

24 MR. KRESS: We are going to have to --

25 She has answered the question.

1 MR. KLAYMAN: Oh, you didn't give me the

2 information.

3 Q. So she could look it up. What was the

4 underlying purpose of giving her the information so she

5 could look it up on the Internet?

6 A. So that she would have the correct

7 information.

8 Q. For what reason?

9 MR. KRESS: I don't know how many times she can

10 tell you.

11 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

12 Q. For what reason?

13 MR. KRESS: If you have any different answer, you

14 can give it to him. But --

16 You can say that all day long if you want to

17 say "And for what reason," and it's not going to help.

18 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

19 Q. You do not want to answer the question; do

20 you, Ms. Ruffley?

21 A. I beg your pardon?

22 Q. You do not want to answer this question, do

23 you?

24 A. I believe I've answered the question three or

25 four times already.

2 is --

5 thing --

7 could look up on the Internet, why did you do it?

8 I'm not asking about her looking it up on the

9 Internet --

10 MR. KRESS: This is getting --

11 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

12 Q. -- I'm asking about what was the reason that

13 you gave her that information; what was in your mind

14 why you gave it to her.

15 MR. KRESS: Is that a different question, or do

16 you have --

17 THE WITNESS: Is that a different question?

18 MR. KLAYMAN: No, it's the same question. But

19 you can answer it.

20 MR. KRESS: This is getting close to the point of

21 just being harassing. She's been answering the

22 question. You don't like the answer, but that's not

23 her problem.

24 MR. KLAYMAN: That's your problem, not mine.

25 MR. KRESS: Well, we will see about that.

3 MR. KRESS: Are you asking her -- you have asked

4 her if she was intending to harm you. She said no.

5 MR. KLAYMAN: I don't want the testimony. That's

6 inappropriate.

21 Q. Did she say why she asked me [sic] what you

22 knew about me?

23 A. No.

25 information, you knew that Orly Taitz had an

1 eligibility website. Correct?

2 A. No.

3 Q. You were very knowledgeable about eligibility

4 issues, though, were you not?

5 A. Probably more than the average person.

6 Q. You are telling me that you would look up

7 whether I was a California lawyer and about my children

8 on your own, but you never looked at Orly Taitz's

9 eligibility website --

2 THE WITNESS: No, I never looked up her website.

3 BY MR. KLAYMAN:

6 Q. Based on your experience in public interest

7 activities and politics, you are aware that nearly all

8 people have websites these days. Correct?

9 A. Yes. A lot of people do. I don't.

10 Q. People that are running for the U.S. Senate

11 have websites. Correct?

2 Q. You didn't tell Ms. Taitz not to publish the

3 information that you gave her on the Internet, did you?

5 Q. You did not tell Ms. Taitz not to publish

6 the information you gave her about me on the Internet,

7 did you?

8 A. No, I did not. Because I had -- I had

9 anticipated that the conversation was just between

10 the two of us, and that was it. And that if she wanted

11 to do any further research, she could do that on her

12 own.

13 And I object to your inserting your children

14 into this. I -- the only reason I mentioned that was

15 because it happened to pop up on one of the searches

16 that I did. And that was about Cuyahoga County,

17 et cetera. And that's where your children came in.

18 But I did not deliver --

19 Q. Before your deposition today, this morning,

20 you met with the lawyer for Judicial Watch in this

6 Q. You didn't discuss anything about your

7 testimony today?

8 MR. KRESS: I'm going to object to the extent you

9 are getting into or very close to the attorney-client

10 privilege.

11 MR. KLAYMAN: No, I'm -- you know, Doug, I'm not

12 getting into that. I'm just identifying whether there

13 was a discussion. I'm not asking for the content.

14 MR. KRESS: Okay. If you want to know whether

15 there's a discussion, you can -- you can inquire.

16 MR. KLAYMAN: Okay.

17 Q. You had a discussion about your testimony

18 today, did you not, earlier before this deposition

19 began with Mr. Kress and Mr. Orfanedes?

20 A. Maybe two minutes.

1 Q. And have you deleted any communications

2 concerning this lawsuit from that computer?

3 A. No.

4 Q. Did you check your computer today about --

5 A. No, because I didn't go in the office.

6 Q. -- the various documents that were relevant to

7 this case?

8 A. No.

9 Q. Have you ever checked your computer in that

10 regard?

11 A. No.

12 Q. Have you ever checked your computer in that

13 regard?

14 A. No.

15 Q. I'm going to ask you to check your computer in

16 that regard, Ms. Ruffley. Because there were documents

17 that were requested by me from Judicial Watch, and

18 obviously you are at the eye of the hurricane here.

19 MR. KRESS: Well, when you say "in that regard,"

20 that's a little broad and open-ended.

21 I will -- so, as you know, we've objected to

22 numerous document requests.

23 MR. KLAYMAN: No, I understand. But, obviously,

24 she should have done a search for the documents, so I'm

25 asking that a search be conducted.

3 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, you just testified --

4 Ms. Ruffley, you are under oath. Okay? So let me ask

5 the questions.

6 THE WITNESS: I remember that I'm under oath.

7 MR. KLAYMAN: I'm not asking for gratuitous PYA

8 responses when I don't have a question pending.

9 MR. KRESS: Please be polite to the witness.

10 MR. KLAYMAN: Excuse me?

11 MR. KRESS: I -- I -- I don't think we need to

12 engage in this.

13 MR. KLAYMAN: Well, I used an acronym. It's not
