Jihad Gianelli - Blogonaut Targets Me After Hearing From Cohen's Legal Representatives & Possibly Finding A Sympathetic Ear With DDA Alan Jackson

NOTE: After hearing from Leonard Cohen's representatives, Jihad Gianelli had a so-called "journalist" (Joff Belark) target me. The following piece of slander (one long lie based on Cohen's fraud, perjury, etc.) was then posted on his website. All facts addressed with Joff Belark in emails were willfully overlooked. Jihad Gianelli, a so-called lawyer in the Bay Area (who may be affiliated with Cohen, the DA's office in the Phil Spector matter, the Clarkson family, Sprocket, Michelle Blaine, and others) then proceeded to harass me, my family, sons, friends, business associates, and others, relentlessly. The U.S. Postal Inspector advised me that they have opened a criminal investigation into "Stephen Gianelli" based on my complaint to them. I have also informed the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury - repeatedly - that I view Gianelli's activities as criminal witness tampering, criminal witness intimidation, an attempt to obstruction, etc. I stand by my position in this matter and continue to maintain that he should be fully investigated - including as his activities relate to what is obviously a coordinated campaign to discredit me, undermine my credibility, slander me, etc. He is the perfect accomplice for a man like Leonard Cohen who does indeed employ people to target others he views as threats to his carefully crafted reputation. Ann Diamond was also targeted and slandered by Stephen Gianelli and others on Blogonaut's Law Blog. My sister and her husband were victims of what appeared to be an all-out blackmail attempt meant to silence me. All of this will be addressed in my book "River Deep, Mountain High." See desperate and pathetic article and tactics relating to Cohen's response to my reporting his tax fraud that I was told is criminal. The lengths this man has gone, and continues to go (latest threats issued February 14, 2011 by his rotten lying lawyers)are deranged. As I was not served Cohen's lawsuit, and the proof of service is fraudulent and perjured, I was only able to read the Complaint, his declaration, and other documents, when Jihad Gianelli posted them to Scribd. This same type of internet campaign was launched with respect to Phil Spector. That campaign included the following Blogs: Sprocket's Trial & Tribulations, Michelle Blaine's utterly vile and repulsive blog, the Darwin Exception, and other sites. Mick Brown/UK Telegraph (who benefited by writing a slanderous book about Phil Spector before the verdicts were rendered)aligned himself with these shameless sites. Stephen Gianelli appears to have a crucial role in the Phil Spector trials - setting up personal doubt theories on the internet allowing them to be refuted by some of the trashiest people I have ever encountered in my entire life.

Lies and Slander are Highlighted in RED.


June 2, 2009

At age 72 music legend Leonard Cohen was on the verge of enjoying a comfortable retirement funded by what he thought was a generous nest egg, only to find out that what he assumed was a retirement account balance of some $9 million had dwindled to a sum less than a hundred thousand dollars.

Granted, Cohen was not exactly “hands-on” with his finances during the period leading up to this unfortunate epiphany—he spent the 4 years preceding this Suzy-Orman-esque moment on an extended spiritual retreat, and had delegated unfettered control over his financial affairs to what Cohen viewed as a close friend, former lover, and trusted advisor.

After some initial reluctance—but after being advised that the tax consequences of inaction (owing taxes on money someone else allegedly made off with) might be less-than-appealing, Cohen, through his Beverly Hills attorneys, sued his former business manager Kelley Lynch, winning a $7.9 million California state court judgment against her in an uncontested default proceeding.

For the record, Lynch now claims that she either was never properly served with the suit or that the multi-million dollar money judgment entered against her “incriminates” Cohen in a scheme that she describes in her frequent blog posts and Cohen discussion board comments as Cohen’s “fraudulent” attempt to cover up his multi-million dollar theft from her. NOTE: to cover up what I was told is criminal tax fraud.

In any event, Lynch has no intention of attempting to set the judgment aside—preferring to characterize the judgment as Cohen falling into her tactical trap. (As Lynch recently stated about this reporter in an email copied to the IRS, The Justice Department, several high profile criminal defense attorneys who do not represent her, the governor of Colorado and a laundry list of other government and law enforcement officials too numerous to mention here: “What is it about I have no intention of setting the [$7.9 million] judgment aside that [Joff Belark] does not understand?”) NOTE: I intend to sue for theft, wrongful conversion, illegally altering my federal tax fraud via a problematic default judgment, slander, transmitting illegal/criminal K1s to the IRS in my name, etc. I have addressed Jihad Gianelli and others threats to have me arrested when I publicly noted that I was filing a Motion to Vacate Cohen's absolutely fraudulent and utterly perjured lawsuit, declaration, etc.

What the May 12, 2006 judgment does, though, is legally establish the basic truth of Cohen’s core allegations against his former manager: That his financial losses were due in substantial part to Lynch breaching her fiduciary duties to Cohen by, among other things, siphoning off his retirement funds for her own use and mismanaging his estate to generate commissions for herself. (For example, Cohen has alleged that even though he did not need the money, Lynch engineered the sale of all of the rights to Cohen’s songs—generating her a $1 million commission instead of the $100,000+ annual commission she typically earned as Cohen’s manager—which proceeds she then siphoned off for her own use while the singer song-writer was off meditating.)

NOTE: Greg McBowman has confirmed that he flew into Los Angeles to meet with me and Cohen over these asset sales. He personally advised Cohen NOT to sell these assets. Cohen insisted - noting that downloading and the internet were affecting record sales. See Cohen's Declaration in the failed CAK bond deal. He knew precisely what these assets generated. Cohen has willfully committed fraud upon the Court, and others, by attempting to pretend that my intellectual property, ownership interest in numerous entities, etc., were my personal management commission. That is a bald-faced lie and he has now proven that he views himself as the alter-ego of those entities and intentionally defrauded me.

The judgment also contains a finding that every dime previously held by Lynch through several Cohen related legal entities was held in trust for Leonard Cohen, as well as an injunction prohibiting Lynch from exercising any further dominion or control over those assets.

In the words of a Colorado federal judge who last year returned to Cohen $154,000 paid into court by a third party fiduciary in the face of Kelley Lynch’s conflicting claim for the money:

“On May 12, 2006, the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, ruled on the issue of ownership of the funds, and entered default judgment in favor of Cohen and against Lynch in the amount of 7.3 million in damages and interest…In rendering judgment, the California court declared Lynch was ‘not the owner of any assets in Traditional Holdings, LLC’ and any interest Lynch had in ‘any other entity related to Cohen ... she [held] as trustee for Cohen's equitable title.’ The California court enjoined Lynch from interfering with Cohen's right to receive any such funds or property or in any other way exercising control over any funds or property related to Cohen. The California court ruling was not appealed and is now final. [Par.] The final judgment of the California court settles the dispute between Lynch and Cohen over ownership of the [$154,000].”

That settled it, right? Not exactly, in Lynch’s mind at least.

Lynch, undeterred, embarked on an alleged campaign to harass Cohen, as primarily evinced by a restraining order issued in favor of Cohen and against Lynch by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge.

NOTE: I have documented, since approximately 2005, for the IRS Commissioner's Staff and others, precisely what I have endured since reporting Cohen's tax fraud to the IRS. I have copied in many other parties - such as the DOJ, Treasury, FBI, Phil Spector's attorneys, the news media, and others. This was not a campaign of harassment (unlike Cohen, Gianelli's etc. with respect to me, my family, and others). This was and remains a record of the facts, the truth, the tactics, and the rotten shameless tactics Cohen - and others - have used against me. I have asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to investigate Cohen's fraudulent lawsuit, the coordinated custody matter, Neal Greenberg's companion piece, the fraudulent and utterly abused TROs, and all issues related to my reporting Cohen's tax fraud to the IRS and being dragged into Phil Spector's sham trials.

At some point along the way, Lynch has stated in various internet posts that she was “kidnapped” by Los Angeles police officers and taken against her will to a Los Angeles County psychiatric facility where Lynch claims she was involuntarily held and drugged pursuant to a conspiracy on the part of Cohen, his lawyers, the Los Angeles County District Attorneys Office, the LAPD, and others to discredit Lynch (who claims to have been a defense witness for Phil Spector in his murder case) and to protect Cohen from Lynch’s allegations that Cohen [allegedly] perjured himself in a “secret grand jury” proceeding in the Phil Spector matter--and that the psychiatric file, as well as the relevant police reports were later altered or substituted by police in furtherance of the alleged conspiracy against her.

I have asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, Phil Spector, his legal team, and others, to investigate why I was taken to Killer King, questioned about Phil Spector, who falsified the entire Killer King file, whether or not Cohen, Lindsey, Kory, Superfon, and possibly others, conspired to have me falsely arrested that day, etc. I have never stated that the psychiatric file as well as police reports were "later altered or substituted by the police in furtherance of the alleged conspiracy against" me. I have stated that I believe the Los Angeles District Attorney had the power and motive to have me taken to Killer King and questioned about Phil Spector.

In approximately 2007, Kelley Lynch moved to Boulder, Colorado where she has off and on reportedly been homeless. In addition, as Lynch stated today, and Blogonaut has independently confirmed, Lynch has in her words been “frequently arrested” by the Boulder Police Department (see booking photo, above). [Ed. Note--Lynch denies being homeless in Boulder, see below update, and stresses that a jury acquited her.]

After witnessing a man with his penis out in front of a child (which was and remains my perspective), I was arrested for "obstructing a peace officer" for reasons I cannot fathom. I prevailed on that issue at trial. It was the only charge I was arrested on and therefore the arrest was wrongful, false, etc. This will be addressed fully in my book and it will be litigated.
To be sure, Lynch attributes her arrests in Boulder to the continuing conspiracy to silence her, as she claims in various internet posts—including an email to the Department of Justice that Lynch published today requesting that the DOJ investigate why she has been "arrested with such frequency" in Boulder.

In 2008, Cohen again took Kelley Lynch to court, this time in Boulder, alleging—as with the earlier issued California restraining order—that Lynch was harassing him.

Cohen appeared absolutely desperate after Ann Diamond posted her draft article for Rolling Stone on her Blog. He legally threatened Ann Diamond at that time and, since then, Jihad Gianelli and others have slandered Ann Diamond.
For the record, Lynch has repeatedly stated that the September 2, 2008 restraining order was “fraudulently issued” after Cohen failed to have Lynch properly served with the petition—even though the official transcript of the hearing reflects that Lynch appeared at the hearing (and after initially asking for a contested hearing and spending a few minutes on the witness stand being gently grilled by Cohen’s Colorado attorney) and requested herself that the court grant to Cohen the restraining order. In fact, the transcript reflects that Lynch told the judge that she "very much" wanted the order to be issued, and that Lynch thanked the judge "very much" after she granted Cohen the restraining order.

Correct. I asked the judge to make the TRO permanent. Cohen presented no evidence; witnesses were not called; and it is impossible that the judge could have ruled for Cohen in that matter. I did indeed thank the judge "very much." After the hearing, I reviewed the file and noted that the process server perjured himself in his proof of service and Cohen perjured himself in his declaration. I addressed all of this in my Motion to Quash.
Lynch--who was contacted by this reporter for comment --also asserted that the hearing transcript is inaccurate, that the court reporter who certified it should "look for another job" and that Lynch would be reviewing the transcript of the hearing "with Bruce Cutler".

"Joff Belark" contacted me and I gave him the facts; directed him to evidence; and he proceeded to write what is one long lie about me - after hearing from Cohen's legal representatives.

Lynch has also blogged that the Colorado judge who presided over that hearing had no jurisdiction over her because Lynch previously reported Cohen to the IRS for [alleged] "tax fraud”, thereby (presumably) converting all pending and future legal matters initiated by Cohen into “IRS matters”.

I continue to maintain that the judge didn't have jurisdiction over me for a number of reasons: the proof of service is perjured and, as my emails leading up to the fraud TRO prove, I was writing Cohen's representatives requesting a forensic accounting, etc. - all of which relates to my tax returns that must be amended for the years 2001-2010 based on the fact that Cohen illegally altered my federal tax returns in a state court. It seems impossible that a state court would have jurisdiction to alter federal tax returns. I have asked the IRS, FBI, DOJ, and Treasury to fully investigate this matter and have asked the IRS for legal opinions on various matters.

Indeed, Lynch has gone so far as to assert that the judge who issued the restraining order “lied” about Cohen’s routine civil harassment petition not being an “IRS matter”, and that she (the judge) was complicit with Cohen in the overarching conspiracy against Lynch and aided Cohen's [alleged] "fraud". Lynch has also stated the intention to sue the judge--along with other judges in California and Colorado who have ruled in favor of Cohen and against her.

I intend to consult attorneys with respect to the various legal matters I intend to bring. Jihad Gianelli does not speak for me and is in no position to state publicly, or otherwise, what I do or do not intend to do. This situation is also fluid so nothing is set in stone.

That brings this reporter to another key assertion that has frustrated the multitude of internet discussion board commenters who have encountered Lynch on virtually every public on-line forum discussing either Cohen or Phil Spector: Beginning approximately two years ago, when Lynch was first asked by a reporter for comment on the $7.9 million California judgment against her—Lynch’s stock line has been that she is waiting to hear from her attorney of choice Bruce Cutler, and when she has had a chance to talk to Bruce Cutler, she will respond in due course.

I have advised Phil Spector that I would like to call Bruce Cutler to the witness stand. I think that ends this discussion.

The (to many) dubious assertion that a broke and homeless Kelley Lynch has any chance of enlisting a high profile New York City lawyer of Cutler’s stature to sue Leonard Cohen and a host of other declared enemies (including the four judges who to date have ruled against her) and other alleged co-conspirators—including the Boulder Police Department—for alleged violations of the Racketeer and Crime Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (and other claims)--has led to serial derision by the message board commenting masses—which derision typically and predictably prompts Lynch to observe that the commenters on this or that blog, or this or that discussion group are all “insane” and/or are “cyber-stalking” her, at which point Lynch typically fires off another email to the IRS and/or the Justice Department—cc to governors, reporters, many of Phil Spector’s attorneys and former attorneys, and dozens of others—demanding that this or that blog or discussion group commenter be “investigated” for claiming that Bruce Cutler will never call her back. (Which, let's face it, after two+ years with no call back is not an unreasonable assertion.)

Jihad Gianelli appears to have contacted Bruce Cutler in an attempt to determine if he continued to represent Phil Spector and in what appeared to be an attempt to infiltrate Phil Spector's defense.

Indeed, just several Cohen fan comments into a discussion formed around a critic's favorable review of a recent Leonard Cohen performance published in the on-line version of the Hartford Currant, Kelley Lynch managed to hijack the discussion on May 13, 2009 by posting her usual scurrilous panoply of unsupported and presumed false accusations against Cohen (e.g., tax fraud, liar, stole millions from me, ruined my life, pervert, perjurer, plagiarist etc. etc. etc.)—resulting in a raging discussion spanning two weeks and over 160 comments—through today. (See link here.) (EDITOR'S. NOTE, ON 6/6/2009, the Hartford Currant, administrators shut down the discussion board and deleted the posts, it is presumed due to reader complaints about Lynch's postings there.)

I "hijacked" nothing. Jihad Gianelli has confirmed that he heard from Cohen's legal representatives. After that, he relentlessly targeted me, my sons, my elderly parents, my sister and her husband (who hired an attorney to speak with him), my friends, business associates, and others. I asked the Hartford Currant to pull down the slanderous discussion board.

For Cohen's loyal fans, as well as the casual observer, this is almost to much to bear—as many of the passionate foils to Lynch’s provocative and apparently libelous comments about Leonard Cohen demonstrate. Certainly, Lynch’s habit of, when challenged with specifics, accusing the commenter or blog host of “harassing”, "cyber-stalking" or “libeling” her, threatening to sue, then posting a copy of an email to the "Commissioner of IRS" or the "Justice Department" demanding an “investigation” of the commenter or blog—cc to high profile attorneys, governors, DA’s, police departments and reporters—does little to bolster Lynch’s credibility.

Nothing I have stated about Cohen is libelous. It's the truth. I have also provided the IRS, DOJ, Treasury, FBI, Phil Spector, his legal team, and others, with ample evidence to prove that Cohen has committed tax fraud, etc.

In addition, the very frequency of Lynch’s email rants to the IRS or Justice Department alone (sometimes three or more in a single day), in combination with her eccentric distribution list to many high profile government officials and attorneys (who must have better things to do with their time than investigate the identity of the guy who is posting as “anonymous” on this blog or that comment group or why (in a recent complaint) this reporter questioned why Lynch has been waiting for over two years to “hear from Bruce Cutler”) arguably suggests, if it does not scream, “nutcase”. Not to mention the fact that Lynch has demanded that the Justice Department "arrest" Phil Spector prosecutor Alan Jackson, and has also threatened the entire Boulder Police Department with criminal prosecution as well as a civil action under the RICO statute.

NOTE: I haven't "threatened" the Boulder Police Department. I have informed the BPD that I intend to litigate certain issues. I am not a DA and cannot criminally prosecute anyone and the notion is absurd.

In the interest of full disclosure, the editor of this site recently banned Lynch from commenting here (as have several other websites) after its editor returned from a month long hiatus in Europe to find that this blog’s comments sections following several Phil Spector retrial posts had been similarly hijacked by Lynch through scores of posts—including many that Leonard Cohen’s California attorneys brought to Blogonaut’s attention as libelous per se (meaning Lynch accused Cohen of various alleged crimes without substantiation).

Jihad Gianelli is absolutely obsessed with the Phil Spector trial. I haven't accused Cohen of various alleged crimes without substantiation. I was advised that Cohen committed criminal tax fraud. I know for a fact that Cohen has stolen from me. Steven Machat knows for a fact that Cohen stole from him and his father. I know for a fact Cohen has lied, perjured himself, committed fraud, illegally altered my federal tax returns, issued illegal/criminal K1s to me that were transmitted to the IRS, State of Kentucky, and engaged in other conduct that definitely appears to be criminal and absolutely crosses many state borders. Nothing I've said about Cohen is "libelous per se." It is fact and it is the truth.
This banning led Lynch to, predictably, email the IRS and the Justice Department (cc to the usual multitude of household name Kelley Lynch rant email recipients) and to demand the investigation of this site. Lynch also threatened to sue Blogonaut for disparaging her—an allegation Blogonaut denies.

I absolutely intend to litigate these matters with Jihad Gianelli.

But in fairness to Kelley Lynch, and in aid of you, the internet going public, making up your own mind, we refer you to Kelley Lynch’s blog--where she republishes her rant emails to the IRS, Justice Department, Doron Weinberg, Bruce Cutler, as well as governors, police departments, prosecutors, and others daily—and were her scathing rebuttals to this post are sure to follow. (See here for Kelley Lynch's blog.)

I have never emailed Bruce Cutler.

As for Leonard Cohen, we observe that he has apparently decided to get on with his life, embarking earlier this year on a critically acclaimed and wildly successful world tour--choosing to stay above he fray of Lynch's ubiquitous, daily allegations with not a single blog comment of his own disparaging Lynch in reply. Class act, Cohen.

Cohen's thug lawyers threatened me, on his behalf, as of February 14, 2011. Why? Because I have attempted to request information I need to amend my federal tax returns for the years 2001-2010. For reasons I cannot understand, Cohen's representatives copied in the IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, Dennis Riordan (who represents Phil Spector), and many others, on their email threats. Steven Machat has noted that Robert Kory is "scum." I have noted that Michelle Rice is, from my perspective, a liar and thug. Leonard Cohen is NOT a class act. He is a lying con artist, fraud, and thief. Cohen hides behind others. He employs others to target people on his behalf. I know. I worked with him for approximately 20 years and have studied him carefully. That will be thoroughly addressed in my book River Deep, Mountain High.
UPDATE: Kelley Lynch Responds!
We have received no less than five, lengthy attempted comments from Kelley Lynch regarding this post. In keeping with her status on this site, we will not publish any of them in the comments section here. (As expected, she has vowed to publish all five comments on her blog, and we expect her to submit additional comments as she stews over this post.)
However, here are some of the tamer excerpts from Lynch’s remarks:

"Blogonaut, please note. I am conveying a copy of the comments I just posted to your Blog to the IRS Commissioner's Staff, the Department of Justice, Agent Kelly Sopko - Department of the Treasury, Doron Weinberg, Dennis Riordan, and bringing this to the attention of Bruce Cutler. What I do or do not communicate with Bruce Cutler is none of your business."

No suprizes there. Lynch also stated:

“I refused to answer [Cohen’s] lawsuit because I chose, instead, to report his [alleged] tax fraud and/or [alleged] criminal conduct.”

EDITOR’S NOTE—Cohen has never been accused by anyone, except Kelley Lynch, of “tax fraud” and we note that despite Lynch’s hundreds of communications over several years to the IRS reiterating that assertion, Cohen has never been arrested, indicted, or charged by any agency with any crime. Not only wasn't I served Cohen's lawsuit; did not read the allegations until April 2010 when Gianelli posted them on-line; I was clear with Cohen and his legal representatives - I do not participate in fraud and I do not participate in what I believed to be an attempt to cover up criminal tax fraud or to obstruct justice.

“The jury found that I did not obstruct a peace officer so draw your own conclusions. That is what I was charged with. Apart from that-it is none of your business...I have never been homeless in Boulder..."

The participants in the organized campaign of slander, witness tampering, cyber-terrorism, cyber-bullying, etc. now proceed to further slander me, defame and libel me, attempt to discredit me, and generally engage in conduct that has played out across the internet with respect to me, Phil Spector, members of my family, Rachelle Spector, Phil Spector's legal representatives and experts, and others. I do not have any psychiatric problems. I do not have an alcohol problem. I do not do any drugs - whatsoever. And yet, absolute strangers have taken to the internet to lie about me. I think their motive is overwhelmingly obvious.

Where was Cohen's attorney during all this?? Reminds me of Paul Stanley (of the rock band Kiss) being taken to the cleaners by his psychiatrist - as was Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys - and let's not even go into Elvis and the Colonel, or Britney Spears and Osama Lufti.

Of course a Judge cannot be sued for his/her ruling, but what is really scary is that Ms. Lynch thinks she can, and that there is this huge law enforcement conspiracy trying to destroy her - when there is not exactly a mutual meeting of the minds philosophically, politically, or artistically between Leonard Cohen and law enforcement.

Ms. Lynch, with the deepest of respect for your intelligence and accomplishments, you will see wonderful results at the University of Colorado's school of medicine's psychiatric division. It is among the best in the nation for treating people. My sincerest best.

We would say the odds are excellent that Lynch will post a dozen or more rants about this article.

She fumed for weeks when she was banned from this site in May--and we never identified her by name at the time. (She then identified herself in a half dozen blog posts as the banned commenter.)

We also expect to be "reported", again, to the Commissioner of the IRS, The Justice Department, the Governor of Colorado, Bruce Cutler etc. etc. etc.

I suspect they've tried already, and it didn't work. Any AA members here? It seems what we're dealing with here, aside from any of many possible psychiatric profiles, is the typical mind of an alcoholic. I.e., as in living in a certain famous river in Egypt. Resentful, keen on everyone else's faults, blind to her own, has lost everything -- home, job, family. I've heard this story told a thousand times at meetings.

At this point the options are basically:

(i) the nut house
(ii) more visits to jail
(iii) death,
(iv) *voluntary* recovery. There is no such thing as involuntary or accidental or self-willed recovery BTW.

One alcohoic's opinion, for whatever it is worth.

Thanks Blogonaut,
I have to say that yesterday when I saw the picture of Leonard Cohen and your glowing tribute to him, I figured that the Lynchness monster was going to really rear her ugly head and take over the blog as she did while you were vacationing. I am glad to hear that you have blocked her. It seems strange though if she stole all that money why is she not in prison, did she get arrested for any of the alleged thefts of Mr. Cohen's money?

Perfect way to describe her "Lynchness monster".

She's a cyber bully because she is a coward. If she acted this way in public, we would not be here speaking about her today. She can't stand other blogging sites as we can tell from her psychotic rants. She hates being outted for all her lies even more. She has the overblown sense of self. Narcissist much?

She can copy and paste all she lies. Doesn't scare me. She's all talk and lies.

Now the next step is to get her taken off the streets and the net for good. I have reported her to the Boulder PD and Cohen's attorney before it is too late for someone else.

Anyone else want to get a hold of Cohen's attorney?

Dear 5:38 am:

Lynch has in fact attempted to post five lengthy comments here.

See update, following the original text.

In predictable self-parody, Kelley Lynch has threatened to (again) report this blog to “the IRS Commissioner's Staff, the Department of Justice, Agent Kelly Sopko - Department of the Treasury, Doron Weinberg, Dennis Riordan, and bringing this to the attention of Bruce Cutler.”

In the same series of comments, after mentioning three additional things that Lynch has allegedly reported to Bruce Cutler, Lynch then inconsistently asserts: “What I do or do not communicate with Bruce Cutler is none of your business."

“Sanneka” just made some valid points over on the Hartford Currant site:

Just a few questions and comments to Kelley Lynch:

“1. My question to you Kelley is, WHY, if you for so many years "could not stand" Leonard Cohen, knew he was [as you claim, a bad person] WHY DID YOU STAY in the partner/friendship until the day you were fired (around 20 years)???. If you were that moral and honest and ethical, why did you not leave the moment you found out Leonard Cohen "did not share your values"???

2. Kelley, this is just a suggestion, but since you are so good at writing fiction, why not write a book or a manuscript for a movie on "Lifetime Movies" about your sad life, you could make some money there and that way you would not have to worry about suing Leonard Cohen and the rest of the world to make a living. Just a thought.

3. Kelley Lynch you are very harsh to those of us who object to your vile, abusive and undocumented accusations on Leonard Cohen. You call us stupid, white trash, undignified, dangerous, nuts and cyber-stalkers... Listen Ms. Lynch, you got into a discussion board in connection with a review of a performance by (in this case Leonard Cohen) you bulldozed your opinions into a board that is meant for opinions on a specific performance, with all your private grievances. You my "friend" are the cyber-stalker, the dangerous one, the abuser, the white trash and yes, excuse me the "nut".
We on the "Hartford Courant discussion board" have been so much kinder to you than you have been to us, not even mentioning Leonard Cohen and Lorca. If you would just keep writing on your own website nobody would read it and nobody would bother you. How about it Kelley??”

Bravo Sanneka!

Kelley Lynch has just tried to submit yet a sixth rambling comment on this site, claiming among other things that the comment posted by an alcoholic is a “death threat to her because Lynch is not an alcoholic and she therefore does not need to recover from that. (Even as she submitted the comment she inconsistently claimed (in the comment) that she had not tried to submit any comments—we have given up trying to follow Lynch’s logic.)

We disagree with her reading of the alcoholic’s comment as a “death threat”. We view it as sincerly expressed opinion and advice. (If unsolicited.)

We would add that we do not know whether Ms. Lynch does or does not have an alcohol problem, but would note that a source informed us that some of Lynch’s Boulder arrests were “alcohol related.”

In any event, Lynch has made it clear that she has no such problem and has publicly stated that her “frequent arrests” (her words) in Boulder were the result of a police “set-up” and nothing else—as was her “kidnapping” and transportation to a psychiatric facility in Los Angeles as was her second involuntary psychiatric hospitalization by Los
Angeles police described in an article that Lynch has often posted as a “good, basic version of events”.

I don't support Phil Spector, and although he doesn't get empathy out of me, after learning Ms. Lynch has harrassed Cohen and even Spector, I strangely feel very sorry for Spector and his team to have to endure all this nonsense. And of course, respectfully, Mr. Cohen and all his fans too.

Which leads me to my next question. If Ms. Lynch harrassses Mr. Cohen's fans, has she harrassed Phil Spector's fans too?
Anyone out there know?

Ms. Lynch, get thee to a good psychiatrist.

We just received two more attempted comment posts from Kelley Lynch--one a response to Samuel's post and one attempting to post a copy of a new email from Kelley Lynch to Phil Spector's defense/appeal team.

Ms. Lynch, we will never post another comment by you on this site--you are wasting your time and ours.

NEWS FLASH: Doron Weinberg and Dennis Riordan are not interested in whether Blogonaut is lying when it is claimed that you persist in attempting to post here. If they were really reading your daily rants, they would have to bill Phil Spector several hundred dollars a day just to keep up with your prolific correspondence.

Doron Weinberg and Dennis Riordan have never publicly advised anyone that they were not interested in whether Blogonaut was lying, etc. They also have not privately advised me on that topic. Whether or not Phil Spector pays their bills to read my emails is no one's business - least of all Jihad Gianelli's since he doesn't know me or Phil Spector even though he is absolutely obsessed with us.

Trust me, that is not happening.

Nor are we anymore interested in your rant emails than Weinberg, Riordan, Cutler, the Commissioner of the IRS, the Justice Department, the Governor of Colorado, Alan Jackson, or the many other people you harass with your unsolicited emails several times daily.

The IRS, DOJ, Treasury, and FBI have not advised anyone publicly that I have harassed them. The FBI has contacted me, privately, on numerous occasions - including in emails which I refuse to post - and has not advised me that I am harassing them. I do, however, believe that Cohen and many others have wasted resources the federal government could better use elsewhere - for instance fighting corruption, terrorism, etc.

Kelley Lynch’s account of her *second* involuntary psychiatric hospitalization as told to a sympathetic reporter Ann Diamond (in a draft article that Kelley Lynch likes to post with the preface that it is a “good, solid version of events”) is quite an insight into Lynch’s unusual thought processes.

(See here one of Lynch’s many posts of the article: )

“Her own account of the events that wrecked her career varies widely from the media portrait of a reckless, delusional woman in the throes of a personal meltdown. THE MELTDOWN WAS REAL, HOWEVER. By late December, 2005, Lynch had lost custody of one son and was homeless and living on the streets with her older son, Rutger, who witnessed the chain of bizarre events that had begun a year earlier.”

“[I]n early June, as she drove down her street to buy dog food, a Mercedes sped out of a neighboring driveway and rear-ended her car, Lynch was thrown forward, fracturing her nose against the steering wheel, and was knocked unconscious.

“Later, she says, as she drove back up the hill to her home, *the same driver was standing in his driveway and called out: “We are watching you”* as she passed.

“Seeing his injured, bleeding mother enter the house, her older son again phoned his father, who may have called 911. Accounts vary as whether the call referred to an incident of “domestic violence” or a “drug overdose.”

“Either way, police arrived at Lynch’s door for the second time in two weeks. Over the protests of her son, they entered while she was on the phone to a friend, Dr. Wendi Knaak who stayed on the phone talking with Rutger while police again handcuffed Lynch. This time they took her to UCLA hospital where her obvious head injuries were ignored. Instead, she was once again drugged and placed in the psychiatric unit where she remained for several days.”

A driver, who rear ends her causing her to break her nose, takes off, and when she drives back up the hill to return home the same driver is standing in his driveway and calls out “we are watching you”?

But when she gets home the 911 operator is told that there has been a drug overdose and/or a domestic violence incident, and Lynch is carted off (again) to a psychiatric facility?

What is wrong with these perceptions?

Let's be honest, if the Lynchness Monster ever receives a bone (hell even a crumb) from Cutler, Whineberg, Riordan, DOJ, IRS... we'll all know about it. She won't be able to help herself--she'll copy the emails to her blog and transcribe (accurately?) any voicemail messages she gets from the people she thinks can help her.

She's totally deluded if she thinks any of Phils attornies or the Feds read her rants--the closest her rants get to the Feds are their spam filters.

Blogonaut, thanks for outing her, and keep up the good work!

Blogonaut said...

We strongly agree that sincerely suggesting that someone might benefit from alcohol treatment and laying out some very unattractive alternatives to treatment is not a “death threat”. Naturally, though, Lynch is so resistant to the idea that she might need alcohol treatment she has written to the Department of Justice (or the IRS—who can keep track of her attempted posts + emails—more than a dozen yesterday) claiming that the commenter here has threatened her life and is trying to intimidate her as a “witness”.

OF COURSE, any theoretical utility Lynch might have had as a witness evaporated in the eyes of the IRS, US Attorneys Office (and everyone else) after her first few hundred rant emails, cc to the world. Several thousand rant emails later, she is useless to anyone as any kind of credible witness—including Phil Spector or the IRS. NOTE the recurring theme and motive.

OF COURSE, there has to be a proceeding pending in which you might testify to be considered a witness, and (apparently) the IRS never found enough credence in Lynch’s assertions of tax fraud to ever file a case against anyone. (Certainly if they have not done that in five years, it is not going to happen—much like whether Bruce Cutler is going to call.)

We have also received interesting and additional information in the last 24 hours that Lynch’s problems may be more related to chronic alcohol abuse than psychiatric in nature.

We have been informed that her ex-husband, Steve Lindsey, tried to get her into an alcohol treatment program before her life imploded—without success. Any alcohol counselor will tell you that if family members think you have a problem with alcohol, you probably do.

Similar to a source who told us that some of Lynch’s run-ins with Boulder police started as alcohol involved inter-personal confrontations, we have heard a story dating back to when Lynch lived in LA involving an alcohol fueled confrontation in a karaoke bar, where her friends extricated her just before the police were called by security guards. Our tipster, who wishes her well, told us “That is fairly typical alcoholic behavior, by the way.”

We do not mention this information to gossip about Kelley Lynch but only to point out that the genesis of her problems may be more complex than assumed by some, and may in fact stem from years of alcohol abuse and the self deception that goes along with that—rather than some major psychiatric condition—as the recovering alcoholic commenter pointed out yesterday. Sometimes it takes one to know one.

And, of course, even if her ex-husband was a jerk, and Cohen wrongly placed his financial issues at her feet, normally marriage and professional setbacks don’t result in serial psychiatric commitments and a transient life on the streets--absent other issues. Which history is also consistent with, as one source described, “drinking that was of the binge variety”.

One former friend told us: “[Lynch] has slowly destroyed whatever meaningful relationships remained in her life, one drunken tirade or one big deception at a time.”

By the way, the people who have contacted us from Lynch’s past life care about her, hate to see Lynch fighting her own problems by projecting them outward, and hate to see her being demonized in various internet chat rooms. Her friends just want her to get help for her addiction to alcohol but point out that she is very stubborn and believes that her spirituality—which they say is real—has convinced her that she is exempt from having a serious problems like alcohol.

It is hard to be compassionate in the face of Lynch’s slanderous invective—not to mention her sheer meanness (she once wrote on her blog that Lana Clarkson’s mother was “skanky”). But we do hope that Lynch gets the treatment that she obviously needs.

Lets all try not to demonize her and realize that she has some very real issues and problems.

Well said Blogonaut. I believe that KL is a very intelligent person that is misguided by her personal demons, we all know somebody like this, has everything and self implodes and makes everyone else miserable and frustrated. However, she did make some rational and compelling arguments that Phil Spector did not murder Lana Clarkson, based upon forensics and their size differences,that I agree with.
I'm sure that you have graciously e-mailed her and extended to her that her friends do care about her and that her time would be better spent taking care of her personal issues, rather than blogging incessantly about nonsensical minutia.

As a former substance abuse counselor and family counselor, I would have to agree that a lot of Kelley's behaviors suggest at least some kind of substance abuse - alcohol or something else. However, when assessing an alcohol/drug problem, one must look at all the presenting problems and decide which one is primary. Lots of times, an alcoholic's behaviors are more serious and dangerous than the alcoholism itself. That, I believe, is the case for Kelley. If she simply stopped drinking (if that is indeed a problem), her psychosis could become life-threatening, either to herself or to others. That's when an involuntary commitment would be appropriate. As for her current state of mind, any intervention would have to begin with ignoring her anti-social behaviors and refusing to give in to her demands for attention. There are any number of psych diagnoses that would fit her behaviors as shown on her web postings - schizophrenia, obsessive/compulsive, anti-social personality disorder, or borderline personality disorder. Based on what I have read about and by her, borderline personality disorder would seem to fit her best. This is not a diagnosis by any means, as making a diagnosis without first hand observation of an individual's behavior would be an injustice.

See, I knew she was watching this blog. Of course she won't admit it. She never admits to a thing. I have no sympathy for cyber terrorists which is exactly what she is. You can deny it all you want Kelley, at the end of the day you will have to pay the price for being a raging alcoholic, neglecting your children, harassing people every single day of your life, all your slander, all your lies about Phil and Lana, the judgement you refuse to pay back and for ripping off the tax payers. Did I leave anything out?

Karma bites!

Might I suggest we not listen to Kelley anymore. Ignore her rants and raves. I have a theory that if we keep feeding her, she will not go away. She loves this attention and gets off on it.
It only fuels all that hatred she has living inside her.

It was compassionate of you (not to mention patient) to detail the problems she has. Obviously a case of "dual diagnosis", or perhaps someone who goes into an alcoholic blackout. Either way, she has a sharp mind that is being diverted by her personal problems.

Maybe we should just give Kelley a break and let her catch her breath and think or re-think her behaviour, we have not heard from her for a while, maybe she is reflecting??? I would really like to be kind to her, but it is VERY hard since she is so full of venom and hate. I can't help to think of the enormous difference between the affect she and Leonard Cohen have on people. When you have been in a room with Leonard Cohen for just a short while you walk away really feeling that you want to be a better person, when you have been in "cyberspace" with Kelley for a few minutes, you feel mean and nasty. How sad it must be for a person to always make others feel that way.

Blogonaut said...

This did not take long (boy are we dumb and naieve.)

Sadly, we have heard from Kelley Lynch in response to our offer to help her get back in touch with former friends in Los Angeles and into rehab.

Here is her reply, verbatim:

“I'm in touch with my kids and know precisely how they feel. In fact, I've copied Rutger in on this email. I have no alcohol problem BUT if I was in a fucking bar brawl that doesn't change the fact that Cohen committed what I was told is criminal tax fraud, ripped me off for millions, illegally made me a partner on LC Investments, LLC, targeted my children, had his lawyer file a declaration in my son's custody matter, ripped off Marty Machat, probably perjured himself in Phil Spector's matter.

“I have no friends in Los Angeles. My friend there is Phil Spector. If you've been in touch with Superfon let her know that I will ask Bruce Cutler to address the fact that she was negotiating for me - without my consent, approval, or awareness - with Cohen. Peter/Jacob Falconey impersonated a federal agent - that is a crime from what I can tell. Steven Clark Lindsey has a gambling habit and was addicted to vicodin. He is also an abusive man, who took my gun, may have two strikes against him, and is a pathelogical liar who asked Rutger to go in and sign over/transfer/sell my house to Cohen/Kory while I was en route to Killer King being questioned about Phil Spector.

“Ron Burkle's copied in here. He lives in Beverly Hills. Why don't you write him directly about me.

“The only program I'm going into is the study of "mens rea" with Bruce Cutler.

“I'm in constant touch with my children. Stay away from my children. Cohen targeted them. Lindsey destroyed my younger son's life and I have witnesses against him.

“I didn't organize any of the tax or structuring of entitites. Go ahead and write all of Cohen's "rogue advisers." Tell him to stop whining - Sony over-paid for his publishing.

“My ex and Ray's father should get a criminal attorney. No. He tried to have me committed to Killer King and the doctor told Rutger he didn't believe him and thought he threatened him. Child Services felt the same way. Perhaps he hasn't gotten off the drugs yet - during the time I was with him he was on vicodin, cocaine, smoked pot, ambien, and who knows what else.

“Leonard Cohen might help me get back on my feet? Is he still on prescription meth? Ask him to come up with a good excuse for destroying my life and why he wanted to offer me 50% community property. I hope he rots in hell. Let me quote His Holiness Kusum Lingpa: "He's an asshole going to hell." I'll trust him over you and Blogonut - who has "banned" me but is redacting me.

“I'll be sick and tired of fighting Cohen, Lindsey, and the rest of the liars when hell freezes over. He has destroyed my children, targeted my parents, and probably perjured himself in Phil Spector's "murder" trial. Phillip is now in jail.

“I believe I have new friends and I believe their names are: Bruce Cutler, Doron Weinberg, Dennis Riordan, and Bill Pavelic.

“You wish me well? Then stop slandering me and lying for my ex-friends who I view as criminals.

“Here - you've heard it first: my book's title is tentatively "Mens Rea: The Probable Motive of Leonard Cohen." If he thinks Phil Spector is going to attack the perjury in his grand jury then he is still on drugs.

“Kelley Lynch

“P.S. Susan Disney Lord and others wouldn't permit their children around Lindsey. My parents think he's garbage. He destroys children for a living. Tell him to call his sister. She believes this also and said his parents help him. If you want to talk to drug addicts you are going to hear the garbage talk of drug addicts.”

We are saddened more than anything else, but there is obviously nothing more that can be done by us (or anyone else) to help this person.

Good luck Kelley Lynch. We (reluctantly) wash our hands of you.

This is what makes legal entities nervous. I certainly hope the law offices of Weinberg; Riordan; and particularly Bruce Cutler have this photo posted for their receptionists to see.

It would also behoove each of these legal entities to have a specific plan of action if she were to enter their offices.

Some legal entities only allow entry upon recognition or validation of identity before a person is allowed to enter the premises.

Dear 7:59 AM:

We have asked an attorney to contact Bruce Cutler regarding Kelley Lynch’s threats to investigate and sue this blog thorough his office (and to concurrently sue Leonard Cohen, the LAPD, four state and federal judges, the Boulder PD, etc.).

As for whether Mr. Cutler is aware of some of Kelley Lynch’s creepier post about him (i.e. that she her fantasy is to have sex with him, and yesterday, that she wants to “marry” Cutler) we have no idea.

For obvious reasons, as well as some very specific information from a source, we very much doubt that Bruce Cutler has ever talked to Kelley Lynch, let alone agreed to represent her—but we will see if Mr. Cutler responds to our counsel.

We also do not believe that Kelley Lynch has ever spoken directly with Doron Weinberg or Spector appellate counsel Dennis Riordan (let alone secured their agreement to represent her).

Jihad Gianelli has no idea who I have spoken to and that includes Doron Weinberg and Dennis Riordan. He also has no idea who I have spoken to about representing me. Jihad Gianelli doesn't know me.

We would parenthetically note that if, as has been reported, Phil Spector is selling his Alhambra residence to fund his continuing legal fees, it is unlikely that Weinberg-Riordan have agreed to represent Kelley Lynch without cost to her or that they are billing Phil Spector a combined $1,000/hour to keep abreast of Lynch's prolific written communications to them and to others (cc’d to them).

It's now 2011 and Phil Spector hasn't sold his home in Alhambra.

Between the email account of the author of this post and attempted posts by Kelley Lynch yesterday on this blog (many of which were cc’d to Weinberg-Riordan—not to mention the IRS, the Justice Department etc.)—we counted over 40 written communications from Lynch since June 3, 2009.

Among them was a communication from Lynch stating “Tell my ex friends, many of whom were pathological liars, that I said rot in hell.”

I am sure that the former friend of Kelley Lynch who contacted this blog at 12:41 PM yesterday to relate that Kelley Lynch has a booze problem, that he hates to see her demonized by blog commenters, and that he hopes she can get into treatment will appreciate the sentiment.

Kelley Lynch writes in one of her many posts (I am losing track) that Leonard Cohen BRAGS about his use of prescription drugs. It is very true that Cohen has been public about his use of drugs for depression and also that he at times drank too much alcohol, that he had too many casual relationships and that he was not always as good a Father to his children as he should have been. All this was part of the reasons that he went to "Mount Baldy" to try to get some order into his life, and he certaintly did, I believe he has become the man he always wanted to be, maybe it just took a little time to get there, but he was NOT BRAGGING about his use of drugs, he was being honest to himself and to the world around him, trusting that people would still love him and WE DO.
Being honest to herself and the world about these problems is something Kelley can or will not face, and that stinks, most of all for Kelley, but also for people who know she could shine if she was just willing to let go of her stubborn hate.

I believe that “people who know she could shine if she was just willing to let go of her stubborn hate” are among the people that Kelley Lynch just yesterday asked Blogonaut to “Tell [them] that I said rot in hell.”

To Kelley Lynch:

To Phil Spector, while you may have met him through your ex-husband, you do not exist as any kind of person that is in any way significant to him. To Cutler, Weinberg, and Riordan you are just another nut case (although to be sure a persistent one) that high-profile cases and celebrity seem to bring out of the wood work.

I did NOT meet Phil Spector through my ex-husband. Actually, the DA's office received an anonymous tip about my friendship with Phil Spector. Many people, including Steven Cron (an attorney who represented me), are well aware that I did not want to be dragged into this sham nightmare. I also advised the DA's office, after they advised me that I was probably a witness, that I would take the 5th amendment based on their conduct towards me which was and remains unconscionable governmental conduct.

As has been said here: Your 15 minutes are up.

You may now return to drinking heavily, talking to imaginary people at the bar, and waiting for Bruce Cutler to call.

Bruce Cutler has been a NYC criminal attorney since day-one.

Raised in Flatbush, Bruce attended Poly Prep and Hamilton (where he wrestled and played football) before moving on to Brooklyn Law and starting out as a Brooklyn assistant district attorney. In 1981, Cutler switched sides and went to work for noted criminal defense attorney Barry Slotnick.

He went out on his own five years later and soon became a household name thanks to his role as John Gotti's defense attorney during the late 1980s and '90s. In all, Cutler won three acquittals for the Mafia don—it was largely thanks to Cutler that Gotti earned the moniker the "Teflon Don".

Cutler, aside from the his FORMER role as *lead* Phil Spector defense counsel, Cutler is not known to take cases outside of his native NYC, nor is he known for civil litigation work.

My June 5, 2009, telephone conversation with Mr. Cutler was an extend one. I did inform Mr. Cutler that Ms. Lynch has posted on her blog that she wishes to have sex with Mr. Cutler and recently posted that she wants to marry him.

Cutler was appalled.

He sublets office space from a “beautiful law firm” who at one point called Kelley Lynch’s office to complain about the multiple 40+ page faxes she was sending every day to Cutler. (This must have been during a period of employment for KL.)

Cutler told me that the faxes stopped but she still “leaves me ten to fifteen lengthy voicemail messages every day”.

Cutler told me that “this is the worst case of telephone staking you could imagine.”

Mr. Cutler told me that he does not know Kelly Lynch and assumes that she is a “disturbed individual” and was completely unaware of what connection, if any, she may or may not have had to Phil Sector or as a witness. He made it clear that “I do not know this woman.”

He asked that I publish the fact that he does not represent Kelley Lynch, does not know Kelley Lynch, will never represent Kelley Lunch and wants Kelley Lynch to stop trying to contact him.

I did not insult Bruce Cutler by asking if he wanted to marry Kelley Lynch; it was made clear that he views her as a disturbed person who is a stranger to him and has been staking him.

Mr. Cutler just wants her to go away.

My conversation with Mr. Cutler was extremely cordial—although he is clearly distraught over Ms. Lynch’s long term harassment of him, which has gone on since he became Phil Spector’s first lead trial counsel over two years ago.

(Kelley Lynch is under the impression that Mr. Cutler may still represent Phil Spector, but Mr. Cutler reminded me he withdrew as Spector’s counsel during the first trial and no longer represents him—and has not followed the case closely since withdrawing.)

By the way, I emailed Kelley Lynch to advise her that Mr. Cutler does not know her, is not going to represent her, and feels he is being harassed by her daily voice messages.

Kelley Lynch emailed back suggesting my account was “fraudulent” and said that until she listens to a tape recording of my telephone conversation with Mr. Cutler, she will never believe I talked to him. (We do not record our telephone conversations with other lawyers.)

Kelley also sent me 10 long email messages in half an hour, coupled with her inconsistent demand that I not contact her anymore. (My office has nothing more to say to Kelley Lynch anyway—and I am going to add Lynch to my blocked senders list.)

It would seem a matter of common courtesy and common sense that if an attorney does not know you and you have not retained him, that leaving 10 to 15 voice messages a day on his office message system for over two years (without a single call back) would be viewed as unwanted and harassing—even if Mr. Cutler had not so advised me.

Lynch’s recent demand that others inquire if Mr. Cutler wants to marry her is further proof that she crossed the line from persistent would be client to disturbed stalker a long time ago.

Besides KL having a major drinking problem. It seems she may also suffer from paranoid schizophrenia.

Signs and symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia may include:

Auditory hallucinations, such as hearing voices
Delusions, such as believing a co-worker wants to poison you
Verbal confrontations
Patronizing manner
Suicidal thoughts and behavior

She certainly displays most of these symptoms, if not all.

Based on unpublished comment from those who knew her in Los Angeles (and told us they hope she gets treatment), Kelley Lynch's bizarre behavior, hostility, meanness and delusions have their genesis more in long term alcohol abuse than mental illness.

Sources also tell us about fighting behavior that is alcohol related, including arrests in Boulder, Colorado.

But what ever the cause of her problems, it is also clear that Kelley Lynch knows very well what she is doing and (in Cohen's case) is motivated by anger and revenge for grievances (real or imagined).

Obviously, Lynch leaving 10 to 15 daily voice messages for Bruce Cutler (who she has never met) and also posting that she wants to have sex with him and to marry him is completely insane; Stalker stuff.

Maybe, but possibly also just alcohol-related. Late adult onset schizophrenia is rare, and to all evidence Ms. Lynch's mental illness is just a continuation of a personality disorder that was there all along. If that disorder was always paranoid schizophrenia it would probably have prevented her from having long-term career success.

All of the symptoms listed above are common enough amongst recalcitrant, formerly high-functioning alcoholics. Therefore alcoholism may be a crucial factor in addition to an underlying disorder.

Given the relative rarity of late-onset paranoid schizophrenia, a dual diagnosis that takes alcoholism into account might rather indicate bipolar schizoaffective disorder and/or antisocial personality disorder. The prognosis in those cases is better than that of full-blown schizophrenia, that is if the alcoholism is treatable first.

It all sounds really wonderful. Kelley has got the clear message. Now she will understand that she does not have a case with her threats and abuse right??. No, I don't think so. Kelley's hopes and dreams of a professional collabroration, sex and marriage with Bruce Cutler (the last two points may be a weird sense of humor) been chrushed, she has been banned from all her outlets for her hate, but knowing "our" Kelley, she is not going to stand for that. Somebody will have to pay. I may be over dramatic, but I do not believe we have heard or seen the last of Kelley Lynch. Please Blogonaut, The Hartford Courant, Joff Belark, Leonard Cohen (and a 100 others, probably even myself) watch your back.

We see that the Hartford Courant finally took down the last third party forum for Kelley Lynch--the Cohen discussion thread. (Hoooray!)

We are not aware of any third party sites that are still accepting Kelley Lynch's comments.

Finally, and internet free of Kelly Lynch drivel.

Seneka, you are too sweet. KL doesn't listen to anyone. She will continue her stalking until she is finally put away. This will happen soon enough. Hopefully this week.

I hope you are right "Anonymous".
You and I will be fine, so will Blogonaut and The Hartford Courant, Bruce Cutler and even Leonard Cohen, but Kelley Lynch will not be unless somebody or something stops her abusive ranting very soon

I guess that it finally sunk in that Bruce Cutler is not going to represent her. Oddly, she attributes that not to her behavior but to some betrayal on Cutler’s part.

In any event, Leonard Cohen already has capable counsel based in Beverly Hills.

Spat my coffee out. They won't help her either.

Point of clarification: Kelley Lynch is the one who has been purporting to have Bruce Cutler "investigate" and sue this blog in post after post.

We simply called her bluff and ascertained that Cutler had no intention of ever representing her.

This does not make us guilty of "obstruction of justice, witness tampering, terrorist threats, slander, libel, defamation, etc." as Ms. Lynch claimed yesterday in her one of several rant emails to "the IRS Commissioner's Staff, the Department of Justice, Agent Sopko, Mr. Weinberg, and Mr. Riordan", cc to others in law enforcement.

Nor does it mean that Bruce Cutler is taking sides in any of Ms. Lynch's controversies.

Who is Brian Peterson whom KL also hates? She's accusing him of making death threats (serious aligation) towards someone named Nat who lives in the UK. I investigated further and this Nat person said her ex harassed her.

FYI - Topix has apparently tired of Kelley Lynch. The thread appears to have been pulled, replaced with a blank screen. Is it me or is everyone experiencing "white out"?

It is not just you--Topix has pulled the plug.

Dear all:

Effective immediately, we are not publishing any further comments regarding the individual from Boulder Colorado.

We all know this person’s legal background and have had an opportunity to make up our own minds about how credible (or not) the person is.

There is really nothing more to be gained by continuing to visit (or revisit) this person’s rants and raves.

We think it best that this person be allowed to fade into obscurity by limiting the audience to their own blog—which no one reads anyway.

Thank you for your support for this post.
