    IF ELECTED TO 1ST DISTRICT SUPERVISOR, I WILL SEEK THE HELP OF FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS REGARDING PULIDO. IF ANY VIOLATIONS WERE COMMITED, THAT HE BE PROSECUTED, AND CHARGED WITH THE MAXIMUM PENALTIES UNDER THE LAW. THE CITY OF SANTA ANA WILL SEE THAT NO-ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.

  • [Tolling and the discovery rule

    Lawsuits are unlikely to be successful if they are filed after the end of the statute of limitations time period. However, most jurisdictions provide limitations are tolled, or delayed, under certain circumstances. Examples of such circumstances are if the aggrieved party (plaintiff) is a minor, or the plaintiff has filed a bankruptcy proceeding. In those instances, in most jurisdictions, the running of limitations is tolled (paused) until the condition ends. Equitable tolling may also be applied if an individual is in a position to intimidate another person into not reporting or has been promised a suspended period.

    The statute of limitations may begin either when the harmful event such as fraud or injury, occurs or when it is discovered. The Supreme Court of the United States has described the “standard rule” as to when the time begins to be “when the plaintiff has a complete and present cause of action”, which it describes as being in place since the 1830s.[5] However, a different rule called the “discovery rule” applies in many other cases, including often in medical malpractice, or a similar effect may be applied through tolling. As discussed in Wolk v. Olson, the discovery rule does not apply to mass-media publications such as newspapers and the Internet; the statute of limitations begins to run at the date of publication. In 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled unanimously in Gabelli v. SEC that the discovery rule does not apply to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s investment advisor fraud lawsuits, as a purpose of the agency is to root out fraud.[6]] Citation

    It is my opinion that based on the ongoing discovery, alleged by OCDA and alleged intimidation by Pulido, the statute of limitations is tolling against Pulido.

      going to follow through with their responsibilities?” Perez said.]…….. Hmmmmm

      The DA is representing people in this case, therefore, we the people are DA’s clients.

      Since DA is clearly acting willfully, wantonly and capriciously to misrepresent his client, essentially committing malpractice, violating State Bar Rules of Conduct, the people you and I can file complaint with the Bar as you would if your attorney would misrepresent you, asking for disbarment, and refund of the attorney fees which he (DA Office) is collecting in this case from the country.

      That is why we have supervisors for.

      Obviously, if Supervisor Spitzer wants to make name for himself as an aspiring DA he should lead this action.

      I guess we should write a petition to Spitzer asking him to file a complaint with Bar and Lawsuit, charging District Attorney Tony Rackauckas,but not limited to, with malpractice, asking among other judgments for his impeachment.

    Feds! Feds! Feds! Feds!

    • Ya know, I remember hearing the Feds were coming to OC to investigate corruption, but when I heard they were working with T. Rack we knew nothing would come as I believe he is the figurehead of corruption in OC.

  • Jeffrey Dickman

    The County Board of Supervisors should investigate the DA’s possible
    conflict of interest in this matter between he and the Mayor of Santa
    Ana. The DA’s silence coupled with his long friendship with Mayor Pulido
    is very concerning as pertains to why the DA has not filed a charge
    against Pulido about a possible pay to play scheme the Mayor may have
    participated in. It looks poor on the DA’s office, the DA and the County
    of Orange that a matter with considerable public visibility will pass
    for lack of interest by the DA. I’d respectfully ask Supervisor Spitzer
    to comment on the matter here and at the next Board meeting.
