Zito Blasts Mezzacappa For Wasting Judicial Resources

It seems that every day, West Easton's very own Wicked Witch, Tricia Mezzacappa, is either in Court or a Clerk's Office, filing papers. An entire rain forest has been destroyed with the volume of motions and pleadings she has filed in recent weeks. But judges appear to have had enough of her games.  Judge Zito looked like he was an inch away from holding her in contempt this morning. Let me tell you what happened.

I was in Judge Zito's Courtroom because I mistakenly believed that Jim Gregory's sentence was being reconsidered today. When I saw Mezzacappa, I was sure she was there to plead for her "significant other." But I had it all wrong. Gregory's case was not heard today. But Mezzacappa had her own matter on the list.

Some months ago, she sued The Express Times for libel as a result of a truthful and accurate article that Tom Shortell wrote about her. Recently, she decided that, while she was at it, she might as well sue West Easton Mayor Gerry Gross for libel, too. But rather than filing a new cause of action, she just filed the suit in with her suit against The Express Times.

Who needs a gun if you have a law degree? 
After doing that, she decided to get the court's permission to join what really are two separate lawsuits. Her argument, in a motion is, hey, they're both libel cases and why should I have to pay another filing fee?  She got a Rule to show cause from Senior Judge Lawrence Brenner, but never bothered serving anyone. In fact, there is some question in my mind whether she ever even bothered to file his Order.

Christine Schlottman, West Easton's Solicitor, knew something was wacky when she tried to enter her appearance on behalf of the Defendant. She was unable to do so because the only real Defendant, The Express Times, already had a lawyer. So she pulled the file and learned that Mezzacappa was playing games.

I can relate. On Monday, Attorney Orloski and I had to sit in Court for a motion that she never showed up to present. She uses the system to vex her opponents.

Today, Judge Zito grew irritated at Mezzacappa's very weak explanations for her failure to file or serve Judge Brenner's Order.

"The Court seems to be spending a lot of resources dealing with your procedural anomalies," he told her.

Denying her motion, he gave Mezzacappa a warning. "Having access to the courts is one thing; having access to the courts for unduly burdening your opponents with costs and appearances is another."

She tried to blame everyone else, but Zito knows her by now. "You are in a precarious position, Ms.Mezzacappa."

Mezzacappa has treated the judicial system like some middle school game for taunting and tormenting people with outrageous lies. The judicial system is no game. When she wastes judicial resources, as she has been doing, she is wasting the money of every taxpayer.

Nice looking young lady of a young lawyer , means well. I predict that the West Easton Witch will be incarcerated soon. Just let her go hang herself.

Neither she nor Gregory get it. They are both self-absorbed nutcases.

They think the Court is just another stage for them to play on.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Peter, I believe Judge Zito was thinking about holding her in contempt today. The Court is on to her.

Alan Dershowitz said...

Mezzacappa will shock the legal community and send Orloski into retirement come December. She is playing possum with these blunders and will uncork a highly sophisticated defense to your frivolous libel action in a stunning reversal not seen since Ali vs Foreman in Zaire.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Unfortunately, Alan, she does not have the benefit of your legal acumen. After being bounced out of court today, she sent my attorney an email, asking to meet him in the presence of a third party. She assureds my attorney that she deleted all the libel from her blog. But just a cursory glance makes clear that it's still there. That's what she does. She lies. Lie after lie.

This is not going to be pretty in court.

You need to give her a break Bernie. Shit happens. You guys had a bad breakup, move on. Be the bigger person.

One of the conditions of the settlement demand, Blog Mentor, is that she detail the involvement of every person who aided her in the defamation, including you.

Its the exact same libel, and a waste of judical resources to keep the actions separate.

You must be losing your hearing, in addition to your mind, because the only thing you are right about was getting bounced out of court.

Who would ask for 2 separate trials for the same matter? No one.

Stop acting like people are always attempting to game the system. You have done that , well enough for not raising one cent of damages in any of your libel complaints, then coming forward after its over, to say you were fired from Patch, and you are owed 31,000 for 10 years of lost emplyment.

Either You filed a fraudulent complaint..... or you are bluffing about being fired. Seems you never learned your lesson about what happens when people commit fraud.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Tricia Mezzacappa,

First, there is no libel by either Gross or the Express Times.

Second, your claims are based on separate occurrences. Judge Zito attempted to explain that to you, but I guess he must be wrong. He ruled against you, and he's the one sitting on the bench, not you.

Third, you don't have to worry about what I think. It is Judge Zito who made very clear that you are wasting the court's time. In fact, I am pretty sure he was toying with the idea of holding you in contempt.

Fourth, the only person here who has been fraudulent is you. That's why I have a judgment against you. Come December, the same court you have incessantly insulted at every turn will determine what you owe. And I will execute immediately. You continued the defamation after Judge Smith's opinion. Your proposed answer actually admits you acted maliciously. Your blofg is still loaded with defamatory comments, despite your lies to the contrary. I will ask for and get punitive damages.


Finally, the time for you to ask questions about my damages is over. That ship has sailed. We are going to court in December, assessing damages, and executing. All the insults you gave my attorney and me will be remembered.

But I am glad for your comment. It tells me you have learned nothing, and your "poor me" post was nothing more than crocodile tears.

Accordingly, I will instruct my attorney to forget any settlement with you and we will take the money we get from executing on everything you own.

Have fun massaging Leighton Cohhen.

She's taunted the judge and insulted his proud heritage by calling him by my mother's favorite dish. The retiring judge should go out in a blaze of glory by sentencing her to a public flogging and an unanesthetized Adam's Appledectomy. What's the difference between Messykkkrapper and a pygmy jogger? The pygmy is a cunning runt.

I'll keep her comment up. it proves to me she has no remorse for her behavior. Neither i nor my attorney will respond to her from this point.

"Molon Labe" is an ancient Greek expression of defiance that has been adopted by pro-Second Amendment activists.

In the firearms context, the phrase expresses the notion that the person uttering those two words will not surrender her guns to anyone, including governmental authority.

The comment at 11:50 PM appears to be more bluster from the attention-seeking, pro se "nobody" who worships guns and specializes in wasting judicial resources?

She is defeated and she knows it, despite all her self-serving bullshit.

Clinton Oxford said...

Forwarned is forearmed. If the S.W.A.T. team know's that negotiation is futile from the onset, with Ms. Mezzacappa....then they can just take the shot, thus ending the "situation"

The worst enemy to go up against, is a scared one. They will do anything.

Bernie O'Hare said...

"She is defeated and she knows it, despite all her self-serving bullshit"

Her anonymous comments here (note she can't sign her name) have made me realize she has no remorse and will continue to spew her hatred as much as possible. As Judge Zito correctly observes, she uses the system to harass people, instead of seeking justice. Numerous libelous comments are still on her blog, in defiance of the rulings against her.

Anonymous said...

Judge Zito may not have held Mezzacappa in contempt. However, I'm guessing he would be receptive to a motion for counsel fees and sanctions for vexatious conduct, including blatant violations of the rules of civil procedure. I urge the West Easton solicitor to file such a motion.

Bernie O'Hare said...

My guess is that Mezzacappa, who has abused the judicial process to vex and humiliate, will be sanctioned. I have something in the works as well.

West Easton has an amazing track record of hiring incompetent solicitors, after Christine gets canned by the strangely uncharged felon Kelly Gross perhaps she will contact Orclownski for an interview. Doubt he would work for her on a "Pro Boner" basis judging by his choice of man meat (Bernice).

Corocoran's reputation would not suffer if he offered effective representation. I have seen no evidence of that thus far.

I have to say bernie, that Tricia does have a certain flair for writing BS

Bernie O'Hare said...

Aside from grammar and spelling, her writing fails because she is so obviously dishonest and is completely devoid of any humor. It is just hate. I've noticed that most of these haters have no sense of humor.

Overheard said...

In the courtroom,

Potential Client: "I will pay you $500.00, when I get my cheque in two week's."

Mr. Corcoran: "Let me tell you how criminal defense work's....First, you pay your money....THEN, you get your Criminal Defense!"

Mr. Corcoran was then appointed by the Judge, to represent the client, then & there, free of charge. What a dipshit.

Tricia, It is much too late for apologies and retractions. You have hurt too many people for too long. No one is going to show you any mercy. Bombs away!

Bernie O'Hare said...

I was willing to settle, but not with someone who continues the same abusive behavior that got her in trouble in the first place, and not when her blog continues the defamation. It is pointless. We will take our chances with the court she has repeatedly insulted.

A true Celtic Warrior would take responsibility for his words instead of hiding behind a pseudonym. But Michael Holmes can't do that bc he is a coward. The man who claimed NC is corrupt and that he would go on a hunger strike, quietly pleaded guilty, slipped away and took down his web page. Now all he's left with are anonymous attacks, and he's no good it. I doubt he's Irish.

Clinton, I think that was meant as a threat, but it might be an innocent question. If I did not appear, I would get no damages. If Mezzacappa does not appear, we will struggle on without her, but no bench warrant would be issued. I would still have to prove damages.

My guess is you know her very well or you would not be posting the 51st cement here on a Sunday night. My damages will be spelled out at trial, not here. The question of liability has been determined. As for comments, I am not responsible for comments that do not bear my name, but will anything that advocates violence. I am aware Mezzacappa does not like the comments my readers post. She had tried to have me arrested, tried to get a PFA, all as a result of her attempts to silence this blog.

Take a trip over to Tricia's blog if you want to see hate and criminal harassment. The disgusting stuff she wrote about Jim Gregory's ex is one example. Tricia is an expert when it comes to bashing people. Her judgment day is just around the corner. Can't wait.
