Teri Smith TYLER, Plaintiff, v. James CARTER, William Clinton, Ross Perot, American Cyanamid, et al -- one wacky lawsuit...dismissed

A federal court decision, in the District Court for the Southern District of New York, 1993. It's always interesting when these clearly deranged lawsuits wend their way through the courts. You think about the dozens and dozens of people who worked on the case at law firms, in the courts, and how much money it cost us to allow Teri Tyler to attempt to exorcise her demons.

Teri Smith TYLER, Plaintiff,
James CARTER, William Clinton, Ross Perot, American Cyanamid, Iron Mountain Security Corporation, Defense Intelligence Agencty, IBM, David Rockerfeller [sic], Rockerfeller [sic] Fund, BCCI, NASA, Defendants.

Plaintiff Teri Smith Tyler, appearing pro se, filed a
complaint in December 1992 alleging a bizarre conspiracy involving
the defendants to enslave and oppress certain segments of our
society. Plaintiff contends she is a cyborg, and that she
received most of the information which forms the basis for her
complaint, through ``proteus,'' which I read to be come silent,
telepathic form of communication. ... She asserts that the
defendants are involved in the ``Iron Mountain Plan,'' which
provides for the reinstitutionalization of slavery and
``bloodsports'' (which she identifies as death-hunting and
witchhunting), and the oppression of political dissidents, herself
included. Plaintiff's complaint alleged a number of personal
indignities visited upon her by defendants: ``strafing of my
dormitory room by planes and helicopters, the electronic bugging
of my student rooms and apartments, deliberate noise harassment,
blasting of loud rock music with lyrics designed for witch-hunts
(music about social pariahs) ... students following me around to
prevent me from studying, whispering campaigns and social
ostrification ...'' ... Plaintiff also makes the following allegations

against the defendants. Former President Jimmy Carter
was the secret head of the Ku Klux Klan; Bill Clinton is the
biological son of Jimmy Carter; President Clinton and Ross Perot
have made fortunes in the death-hunting industry, and are
responsible for the murder of at least 10 million black women in
concentration camps, their bodies sold for meat and their skin
turned into leather products. The defendants are also responsible
for breeding farms, which turn out 2,000 black girls a year, who
are then sold for recreational murder or as human pets.
Additionally, the defendants utilize weather control and
earthquake technology to threaten other countries that object to
the Iron Mountain Plan.

Plaintiff asks the Court to grant her the following relief:

$5.6 billion in compensatory and punitive damages;

A physical accounting of all black women born since
1940, including their present, whereabouts, and for those who have
died, an investigation into how they died;

The purchase of land in Africa for the emigration of
abused black women;

The bringing to justice of those responsible for the
American holocaust;

An investigation into the foster care system, and a
physical accounting of all black children placed into foster care;

An end to slavery in the United States;

The end of the cyborg program run by NASA, the Defense
Intelligence Agency, American Cyanamid and IBM;

An end to the organ donor program

While plaintiff was trying to effect proper service of the
summons and complaint on the defendants, she made a number of
appeals to the Court for interim relief in the form of Orders to
Show Cause. On January 20, 1993, she asked the Court to enjoin
the inauguration of President Clinton. The Court denied her
request as moot. In August, 1993, she moved to enjoin the
installation of Louis Freeh as Director of the FBI on the ground
that Clinton appointed Freeh only so Freeh could cover up evidence
of Clinton's wrongdoing. That motion was denied, as it lacked a
sufficient evidentiary basis.

Presently before the Court is an Order to Show Cause why the
Court should not enjoin the trial in the World Trade Center
bombing case, now proceeding in this Court before Judge Duffy.
Plaintiff alleges that President Clinton ordered the bombing of
the World Trade Center in order to justify war with Iraq. In
support of her application, plaintiff describes certain ``proteus''
communications she had with other individuals. Plaintiff alleges
that the United States invaded Panama and arrested General Noriega
because Noriega objected to United States soldiers raiding Indian
tribes in Central America for child sex slaves to torture in
American cocaine based thrill-killing rackets. Plaintiff contends
she wrote to Noriega asking him to join in her lawsuit, but that
United States soldiers holding Noriega beat him when he asked for
his mail.

Plaintiff asserts that in 1988, Rajiv Gandshi spoke to her
through ``proteus'' and informed her that he was being held prisoner
and sexually abused by a man whom he had caught stealing from the
funds generated by the Bhopal disaster settlement. According to
plaintiff, Yasser Arafat tried to confirm Ghandi's tale of abuse
on behalf of the plaintiff, to no avail.

Plaintiff additionally contends that Gulf War against Iraq
was undertaken so that American could restock its sexual slavery
camps, which had been depleted. 40,000 Iraqi soldiers captured by
the United States, selected for their physical attractiveness,
have been brought to this country where they were ``being beaten,
forced to run gauntlets and homosexually gang-raped by American
soldiers.'' Plaintiff claims to have confronted Secretary of
Defense Cheney with evidence of this allegation. Cheney, through
``proteus,'' purportedly told the plaintiff, ``Well, we were so sick
and tiered [sic] of killing black girls. We just had to put some
variety back into our death-hunting industry. And they [Persians]
are incredibly beautiful. The beauty of the face heightens the
pleasure of the kill. I know of no higher pleasure than the
gang-rape of exceedingly beautiful people.''


Additionally, the plaintiff alleges that the Serbian government, the ``Nazi Bund,'' the Bank of Commerce and Credit International (``BCCI'') are also involved in the conspiracy.

Attached to plaintiff's papers, and apparently offered to support her claim, are a number of exhibits. Most prominent among the exhibits is a book by Robert Ellis Smith entitled ``Privacy: How To Protect What's Left Of It'' (1979), and a four page illustrated pamphlet advertising pornographic movies starring young men. Plaintiff has circled a number of photos of naked men who appear to be of Mediterranean or Latin American descent, which I interpret as her evidence that Iraqi and Central American men are enslaved in pornographic ``rackets'' ...

The Court's Memorandum and Order goes on to explain why the Court is ordering the case dismissed ``sua sponte'' (meaning of the Court's own volition, without prompting by the defendants): because the plaintiff is barking mad and must not be allowed to waste public time and resources in this way.

Phil Spector: Life without wigs

This is probably the last we'll hear of Phil Spector--the legend behind "the wall of sound." There is no question he made major contributions to pop music--and even changed the way it was made. I never really forgave him for what he did to The Beatles "Let It Be" album, which McCartney later re-released (as "Let it be...naked"), stripped of its strings and choral work . He made a mess of The Ramones' "End of the Century." On the other hand, he did produce the excellent megahits "All Things Must Pass" by George Harrison, as well as his No. 1 triple album "Concert for Bangladesh." And John Lennon's hit album"Imagine" (clearly Harrison were fans of his work, while Macca was not). And then there is all his great mid-sixties music, from the Righteous Brothers "Unchained Melody" to "Be My Baby" to Ike and Tina Turner's great but monumental flop "River deep and mountain high."

Spector stated on more than one occasion his philosophy of making albums. All you had to do was come up with "two hits and ten pieces of s**t".

In these photos, you see some of the hair styles fabled Phil Spector wore during his protracted murder trial in Los Angeles (which, with massive breaks, ran from May 2005 to May 29, 2009. Spector was sentenced two weeks ago to 19 years to life in prison for the murder of the actress Lana Clarkson, who was shot through the mouth in the producer's home, in 2003.

This mug shot of Phil Spector released Wednesday by the California prison system unveils Phil with his wigs confiscated. The mug shot, of a bald-headed Spector with long stringy hair on the sides, was taken on June 5 as part of the prison intake system.
