Who Owns Evan Brown's Brain?
The legal filings of the lawsuit DSC Communications v. Evan Brown are provided on this web site.
It takes a lot of searching the records to find the abuses of the court.
One of the first abuses is recorded in the transcript of the hearing on April 30, 1997 (Motion for Protective Order pg26:16). Judge Roach's statement also clearly shows he was communicating with DSC's attorneys in violation of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures. Judge Roach personally owned shares of stock in DSC yet he ruled on evidence and testimony while in direct violation of the Texas Constitution. Note: The Texas Court of Appeals ruled Judge Roach to be disqualified and all his orders were ruled void.
The case was assigned to Judge Henderson after the Court of Appeals issued their ruling on Judge Roach.
Judge Henderson violated the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures when issued an Agreed Scheduling Order despite my objections. The scheduling order put me to a disadvantage due to my lack of knowledge and experience with the legal system. Judge Henderson denied my April 8,2002 3rd Request for Discovery to Plaintiff and 2nd Request for Interrogatories to Plaintiff due to my misunderstanding of the scheduling order.
Judge Henderson denied my 2nd Motion for Summary Judgement in violation of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures because DSC/Alcatel failed to file a Response to Motion for Summary Judgement. Judge Henderson granted DSC's Motion for Summary Judgement despite the presence of material fact issues. Judge Henderson issued a Final Judgement disposing of the lawsuit after granting DSC's Motion for Summary Judgement for Breach of Contract despite the fact that DSC had several other claims in their Amended Original Petition.
The Jury Fee was paid to the court for a jury trial yet there was no jury. Judge Henderson abused the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures again by personally evaluating the facts and testimony of the parties and personally ruling on the fact issues presented. As a result, an undeveloped thought in a persons mind is now qualified by the Texas courts to be an invention. As a result, if you receive compensation (pay check) all your thoughts (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) belong to your employer.
DSC Communications was a manufacturer of telecommunications equipment and there is no reference to any product sales of software reverse engineering services or product in any of their SEC filings or other company literature, yet Judge Henderson ruled that my idea was along the line of work or business.
The Texas Court of Appeals denied my appeal which was based in part on Judge Hendersons violations of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures. The Texas State Supreme Court denied my petition for review as allowed by the Texas Legislature. Texas State Supreme Court is allowed to pick and choose what cases they wish to hear. The Texas State Supreme Court is the body that created the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures and is the body that enforces those rules.
The long and short of the seven years I spent in litigating this case is that there is no justice in Texas courts. Judge Henderson violates the rules, the Court of Appeals chooses not to rule on the lower court rules violations, and the Texas State Supreme Court chooses to turn a blind eye to the lower courts abuses.
One story I've heard over the years is that in Texas, businesses contribute substantially to the reelection campaigns of judges even though many judges run for election un-opposed.
The TV program "60 Minutes" has documented many of the problems with Texas courts and judges in the past and nothing has changed to correct the abuses.
It is my belief that justice is forsale in Texas.
Work in Texas at your own risk
If you are a creative thinker and problem solver, you are much better off working in California where you have some protection from your employer.
