excerpts:
"...intrigued to be listening to your interview with Allison Jackson - of course, especially the part that we've spent a lot of time talking about on this show talking about, which was the Greg Jennings case, and how she felt about that which was consistent with what other attorney's that I and we have, a bigger group of interested cyclists have, spent a lot of time talking to...

Interesting to me, from the other attorney's I talked to - they also felt it was the judge's job to determine whether this was a scenario of gross negligence...

Very strange that you would go to a hearing without talking to witnesses and the CHP Officer - when we were there and it was a surprise to Paul when he walked in the way the CHP officer was approaching it and that was like, what 8 months later or 9 months later, maybe almost a year later...

We were having those meetings and the first thing we would get from him, is you would walk in the room and say "Just so you know, it is not against the law to hit and kill a bicyclist." It really clarified for us how he was approaching the case...

...Back in 2005 a gentleman was hit from behind, and, on Myrtle Avenue, and we met with Paul and it was the same, I have the notes in the same note pad I have from meeting with attorneys in the Jennings case...

...and it was the same approach that Paul Gallegos had back in 2005, and we were all really frustrated with that....

I don't want to see the legal system (FAIL) screw us or not look for those opportunities to treat us justly and prosecute within the fullest extent of the law...

accomplishment you're most proud of: ...most proud of our work on Skilled Healthcare... can't believe we've done so much work... there's so-o-o much work... one thing I've never been big on, its self promotion... (defends his handling of the Jennings case)
