Mezzacappa's Latest Stalking Claim Dismissed
Apparently, he was my back up.
I called Angle with the news. He was never served with Mezzacappa's petition, despite her sworn testimony that she had done so. I told him I had won, but he has to report to the prison by 9 AM today.
I'll wait 'till he gets there before calling to tell him the case against him has been tossed, too.
We both owe Rick Orloski a debt of gratitude. He's been heaped with abuse from a sick person for doing his job.
What prompted this latest stalking petition?
She saw me.
I was at the courthouse, earning a living. She came to my work place to file papers. I said nothing to her. I just walked to a computer and did my job. The very next day, she filed a petition complaining that I not only confronted her, but obstructed her from leaving the office.
A few weeks later, she decided to add Ron Angle as a Defendant for good measure because she saw him at the courthouse once as well. She claims he laughed at her.
Mezzacappa had asked all of her fans to come to court with her for moral support. But on that fateful day, the only person with her was her Republican running mate for West Easton Borough Council last year, Laurie Denegar.
I walked into Judge Betrami's courtroom, and Mezzacappa ran out, insisting I had to leave. Eventually, there were three or four deputies in the courtroom, about as many as you'll find in a frickin' murder case. Later, when Judge Beltrami came to the bench, Mezzacappa's friend asked him to eject me so Mezzacappa could present her case. Beltrami advised that, as a party and the subject of some pretty scandalous accusations, I had every right to be there.
After the case was nearly over, Mezzacappa decided she'd come in after all, to make a statement. But she would only come in about 1/3 of the way. After about thirty seconds, Judge Beltrami decided to place her under oath. She rattled on with scurrilous accusations of criminal behavior, getting louder and angrier as she rolled along. She also threw a few darts at local police and the DA for not throwing me behind bars.
Interestingly, Judge Beltrami was unable to find the Preliminary Objections and Brief that Attorney Orloski had filed on my behalf, even though the docket entries made clear they had been filed. They somehow mysteriously vanished. Orloski had to re-send them.
Judge Beltrami not only dismissed Mezzacappa's latest stalking claims, but has actually barred her "from pursuing additional pro se litigation against Defendant [that's me!] and any related defendants [that's Ron!], raising the same or related claims, without leave of court. [that's him!]"
Put more simply, she's full of shit.
Judge Beltrami picks up on something I missed myself, which is why he gets the big bucks. In one of the Petitions, Mezzacappa claims (falsely) that I was heckling her in Judge Yetter's courtroom on the day she was convicted of disorderly conduct for threatening to drag West Easton Borough Council President Kelly Gross to the Delaware River and drown her. But in another petition, she claimed it was Angle, too, even though he was never there. She couldn't even keep her own stories straight, a problem common to liars.
Last year and again this year, Mezzacappa and her so-called lawyer, Larry Otter, abused a system designed to protect, not hurt, people. They filed a frivolous lawsuit with absolutely no probable cause to back up any of their ridiculous allegations. She dragged Ron Angle into the mix, abusing process to do so, and falsely testified that he had been served. Her outrageous claims hit the newspapers and television, where I was portrayed as some kind of monster. This was both a malicious prosecution and an abuse of process.
It's our turn now.
