As an investigative journalist and consumer reporter I’ve read a number of lawsuits, probably in the thousands at this point. But a suit sent to me this morning by a tipster (send in your tips here) has to be among one of the strangest I’ve seen.
The underlying legal foundation of the case might be sound and the Plaintiffs might prevail, who knows how this ends.
But to start off a lawsuit by including a press release in it, now that’s odd in my experience. And keep in mind, I’m not a lawyer, I just read a lot of what lawyers write. And this one is in my odd hall of fame.
Until now the suit that came closest for me was The Debt Relief Most Bizarre Lawsuit of the Year, So Far, Goes to Regner v. Devoto. The complaint just forwarded to me doesn’t surpass that one but comes in a close second with all it’s conspiracy theories.
Not only did I question the copy of the complaint sent to me, but I went and looked it up for myself to make sure what I was sent wasn’t a gag. It was actually the real suit.
On October 25, 2012 the following parties filed an amended complaint in case 1:12-cv-04269-JBW-RML. The complaint was filed by Spire law Group, James Fielder, and Nicholas Moccia.

And that was quite a worldwide tour, wasn’t it?
After all of that, the next three pages of the complaint are a press release. Maybe that’s something that is regularly done, but it’s not something I’ve ever seen. I wonder if a copy of this suit is going to be used for marketing for new clients and the release was included as part of that effort?
The Press Release
NEW YORK, NY– (10/25/12) — Spire Law Group, LLP’s national home owners’ lawsuit, pending in the venue where the “Banksters” control their $43 trillion racketeering scheme (New York) – known as the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History and identifying $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money by the “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners and joint venturers – now pinpoints the identities of the key racketeering partners of the “Banksters” located in the highest offices of government and acting for their own self-interests.
In connection with the federal lawsuit now impending in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, New York – involving, among other things, a request that the District Court enjoin all mortgage foreclosures by the Banksters nationwide, unless and until the entire $43 trillion is repaid to a court-appointed receiver – Plaintiffs now establish the location of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money in a racketeering enterprise participated in by the following individuals (without limitation): Attorney General Holder acting in his individual capacity, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris (both acting in their individual capacities), Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary (acting in his individual capacity), Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former “communications director” for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the “Banksters” themselves, and their affiliates and conduits. The lawsuit alleges serial violations of the United States Patriot Act, the Policy of Embargo Against Iran and Countries Hostile to the Foreign Policy of the United States, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly known as the RICO statute) and other State and Federal laws.
In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000.00) by the “Banksters” and their coconspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the “bailout programs” by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other “bailout money” advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress. Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the “Banksters” criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama’s campaign from these same “Banksters” to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the “Bankster” Defendants.
The complaint – which has now been fully served on thousands [?] of the “Banksters and their Co-Conspirators” – makes it irrefutable that the epicenter of this laundering and racketeering enterprise has been and continues to be Wall Street and continues to involve the very “Banksters” located there who have repeatedly asked in the past to be “bailed out” and to be “bailed out” in the future.
The Havens for the money laundering schemes – and certain of the names and places of these entities – are located in such venues as Switzerland, the Isle of Man, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Cypress and entities controlled by governments adverse to the interests of the United States Sanctions and Embargo Act against Iran, and are also identified in both the United Nations and the U.S. Senate’s recent reports on international money laundering. Many of these entities have already been personally served with summons and process of the complaint during the last six months. It is now beyond dispute that, while the Obama Administration was publicly encouraging loan modifications for home owners by “Banksters”, it was privately ratifying the formation of these shell companies in violation of the United States Patriot Act, and State and Federal law. The case further alleges that through these obscure foreign companies, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Bank, Citibank, Citigroup, One West Bank, and numerous other federally chartered banks stole trillions of dollars of home owners’ and taxpayers’ money during the last decade and then laundered it through offshore companies.
This District Court Complaint – maintained by Spire Law Group, LLP — is the only lawsuit in the world listing as Defendants the Banksters, let alone serving all of such Banksters with legal process and therefore forcing them to finally answer the charges in court. Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission, nor the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, nor the Office of the Attorney General, nor any State Attorney General has sued the Banksters and thereby legally chased them worldwide to recover-back the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) and other lawful damages, injunctive relief and other legal remedies.
James N. Fiedler, Managing Partner of Spire Law Group, LLP, stated: “Why did it take a private law firm to reveal the biggest secret regarding the Obama Administration, especially after the prior Bush Administration appointed a competent Democrat – Neil Barofsky – to head up the TARP program? What has the Administration done to recover back these trillions of dollars, since April, 2012 when this complaint was first filed? Why hasn’t the Administration acted to investigate or fire Holder, engaged in conflicts of interest with outside lawyers while he purports at the same time to act for the public good as U.S. Attorney General? What exactly does Timothy Geitner do for a living, other than preside over the laundering and racketeering of trillions of dollars? Why has no Bankster been sued or indicted by any of the foregoing public officials, while they concurrently steal trillions of dollars and transfer them to Luxembourg? Former FDIC Chairman Shiela Bair said that the “bailout” benefitted ‘solely the Banksters and all regular American citizens were left to fend for themselves.’” Spire Law Group, LLP’s charter is to not allow such corruption to go unanswered.”
Comments were requested from the Attorney Generals’ offices in NY, CA, NV, NH , OH, MA and the White House, but no comment was provided.

Here is an excerpt:
The Nixonian Enemies’ List of the Obama Administration
Pursuant to the racketeering and laundering schemes set forth above, the Bankster Defendants – operating through their co-conspirators in governmental positions of law enforcement – directed the Obama Administration and parallel State Administrations who were willing to “play along” to maintain and keep current on a daily basis an “enemies list and all of their activities” so that the racketeering and laundering schemes set forth in detail above could be used with the imprimatur of “governmental oversight” through the Holder-Dunn Group and their affiliates. This has resulted in numerous cases where the Holder-Dunn Group and their affiliates – or those acting on their behalf – have admitted to extrinsic fraud, suborning perjury, attempting to fix cases, fabricating evidence and directing the use of prosecutorial governmental resources in an unequal, vindictive and selective way in which innocent people and home owners nationwide have been targeted. This is how the “robo-signing” kinds of scandals began, and is why no prosecutions of such document fabricators and forgery recidivists ever occurred. Far from being isolated as one example of unlawful conduct toward those on the enemies list, the Holder-Dunn Group has presided over the highest level of warrantless searches, seizures, wiretaps and creations of sham files and sham court filings and sham recordations and sham (so-called phantom) litigations, in the history of all United States administrations before them.
As of the date of filing of this First Amended Complaint, the enemies list held by the Holder-Dunn Group, their affiliates and agents and representatives – and thus subject to the foregoing illegal behavior and obstruction of justice — have included (but are not limted to): Among others, on information and belief, including in the federal enemies list supervised by the Holder-Dunn Group as set forth above are (a) Ruppert Mudock, (b) Roger Ales, (c) Fox News Network and their affiliates, agents and those acting on their behalf, (d) active members of various faith based organizations located within the jurisdictional purview of this Court in at least Brooklyn New York; and (e) active members of various faith based organizations located elsewhere in the United States (e.g, Iowa) but damaged by the fraud, theft and racketeering enterprise of Defendants in New York set forth herein; and (d) active members of various faith based organizations that openly support the United States of America’s pre-2009 stance on the unwavering support of the State of Israel and against all enemies thereof including, e.g., Iran, located in Brooklyn, New York; and (f) outspoken journalists and former agents of the Holder-Dunn Group such as (g) Neil Barofsky, (h) Shiela Bair, (i) Senator Grassley, (j) Congressman Darryl Issa, (k) Sheldon Adelson, (l) Donald Trump, (m) Steve Wynn, (n) Congressman Allen West and the Tea Party, (o) Karl Rove and his affiliated entities, (p) the Koch Bros., (q) Sean Hannity, (r) Michelle Malkin, (s) James N. Fiedler, (t) Rush Limbaugh, (q) Tucker Carlson, (r) various organizations with agendas contrary to those of the Bankster Defendants as set forth in detail above, including the Daily Caller and Judicial Council Watcher and their affiliated entities. This has devastated the Plaintiffs because the Holder-Dunn Group, et al. have diverted monies and resources due Plaintiffs and their privies away from crediting such payments against mortgage balances and loan modifications; and alternatively in favor of perpetuating the money laundering and RICO schemes set forth in this complaint.
