Re: Defendant Kamala Harris
Dear Mr. Lewis:
1. In a letter dated July 3, 2014, you informed me that your office is representing defendant Kamala Harris in the action I have filed in Yolo County Superior Court. Please note that I strongly object to such representation because Ms. Harris has been sued in her capacity as a private individual for misconduct which took place before she assumed the position of Attorney General of the State of California — specifically, misconduct she undertook together with her brother-in-law (Tony West), who was employed at that time at Morrison & Forester (alongside James Brosnahan and Chris Young) in her capacity as a member of Obama for America.
As such, I believe that your office’s representation of Ms. Harris under these circumstances is inappropriate, and ask that your office cease from representing Ms. Harris. If you disagree with my position, I would appreciate if you can forward an explanation.
2. Your letter also states that on July 3, 2014 you attempted to file a demurrer to the complaint, to be heard on July 25, but were told by the clerk of the court that it will not assign a hearing date. My understanding is that the last day to file any motion for a hearing date of July 25 was June 27, 2014 (for service by mail). As such, the clerk was correct in rejecting your papers.
Nevertheless, as a courtesy, I will not seek entry of default judgment against Ms. Harris, and will await word from the Court as to when it will hear your demurrer.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
