"The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason."
--Thomas Paine

   The following case will aid you in  your research and preparation of your own legal documents, or to help prisoners with their legal documents.   If you are helping a prisoner, the following authority will help you in that process.   As Supplemental Brief was prepared for the Third Appellate Court, by laymen under the authority of  Johnson v. Avery , 393 U.S. 483 (1969), which states as follows:

MR. JUSTICE DOUGLAS, concurring.

        "We think of claims as grist for the mill of the lawyers. But it is becoming abundantly clear that more and more of the effort in ferreting out the basis of claims and the agencies responsible for them and in preparing the almost endless paperwork for their prosecution is work for laymen. There are not enough lawyers to manage or supervise all of these affairs; and much of the basic work done requires no special legal talent. Yet there is a closed-shop philosophy in the legal profession that cuts down drastically active roles for laymen. It was expressed by a New York court in denying an application from the Neighborhood Legal Services for permission to offer a broad legal-aid type of service to indigents:

         . . .That traditional, closed-shop attitude is utterly out of place in the modern world where claims pile high and much of the work of tracing and pursuing them requires the patience and wisdom of a layman rather than the legal skills of a member of the bar. The plight of a man in prison may in these respects be even more acute than the plight of a person on the outside. He may need collateral proceedings to test the legality of his detention or relief against management [393 U.S. 483, 493] of the parole system or against defective detainers lodged against him which create burdens in the nature of his incarcerated status. He may have grievances of a civil nature against those outside the prison. . ."

   If you are helping a prisoner or working on a case for yourself, you should read all the codes that apply, learn the Rules of Court, procedures are different in every court.  Educate yourself by reading and studying everything you can find on the subject case.  Remember the time lines, there are very set times that appeals must be filed, learn the procedures, call the Clerks as they can be helpful to those that are learning.  They can't give legal advice, but they can help with procedure, like what color and how many copies, and when they have to be filed with the court.

See below for more links and information on Three Strikes and Prison Issues, including writings by Prisoners

A sentence of 28 years to life imprisonment under California's "Three Strikes" law violates the Eighth Amendment where: 1) the offense was Petitioner's failure to update his annual sex offender registration within five working days of his birthday; and 2) he was living at his registered address throughout the relevant time period. Habeas relief is warranted because the state court's application of the gross disproportionality principle was objectively unreasonable.

"Power is the great evil with which we are contending. We have divided power between three branches of government and erected checks and balances to prevent abuse of power. However, where is the check on the power of the judiciary? If we fail to check the power of the judiciary, I predict that we will eventually live under judicial tyranny." - Patrick Henry

Right to Travel & Vehicle Information

Drivers Licensing vs. Right to Travel

"Personal liberty largely consists of the Right of locomotion -- to go where and when one pleases -- only so far restrained as the Rights of others may make it necessary for the welfare of all other citizens. The Right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, by horsedrawn carriage, wagon, or automobile, is not a mere privilege which may be permitted or prohibited at will, but the common Right which he has under his Right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Under this Constitutional guarantee one may, therefore, under normal conditions, travel at his inclination along the public highways or in public places, and while conducting himself in an orderly and decent manner, neither interfering with nor disturbing another's Rights, he will be protected, not only in his person, but in his safe conduct."

Prosecutorial Misconduct

"Prosecutors have paid little attention to their constitutional duties... they are under a constitutional mandate to provide the defendants with all exculpatory evidence in the government's possession.  This obligation is almost routinely dishonored and probably accounts for more miscarriages of justice than any other violation... The worst prosecutorial offense is lying to a court... Lying by prosecutors occurs with dismaying frequency..."
