In the 70s, I represented Retail Credit (now Equifax) in respect to which a private litigant had made his life's work the matter of suing it for perceived wrongs. He was pro se and not unformidable. He petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a case we won at the trial court and appellate levels. I just found that someone arranged to publish the record on appeal to the Supreme Court in that case. I'm tempted to purchase it.
I came across the "book" at the website of The Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale:
The Poisoned Pen Bookstore was founded in 1989 by Barbara G. Peters. It is an independent bookstore with strong specialities in crime fiction, especially British mystery and noir, history, and literature of the American Southwest. Located in Old Town Scottsdale’s Art District, it moved to its present location in 1999.
I find a lot of irony in such a book store carrying the publication. My guess is that my worthy adversary would have filled his pen with vitriol had he been able to do so; a very angry man he was (and may still be - I hope he still is in being).
To whom I must respond, "Thank you for suing my client."
