Dear Mr. Satterburg, Mr. Maleng and Ms. Johnson, 5 August, 1997

Please accept this as formal confirmation that (inter alia) I shall be
filing an Amicus Curiae brief for consideration by the relevant courts in
the case of:

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

Mary Katherine Schmitz LeTourneau: Ref: 97-1-015 23-1 . KNT

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

As I have discussed with you all on several occasions now, this case has
grave human-rights and international relevance and implications, as well
as raising profound legal, hmuman rights and social issues under the laws
of the State of Washington and the United States itself

I owe you a preliminary explanation for my direct personal involvement in
this case. This also constitutes a statement for the relevant official

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[A] As explained to me by Mr. Dale Foreman of the Washington State
Republican Committee, the prosecution is being brought to make an example
of Mary Kay Schmitz LeTourneau. This is unacceptable. Political 'Show
Trials' and witch-hunts do not form any proper part of the American legal

As Mr. Satterberg will well recall, I contrasted his and his colleagues'
prosecutorial zeal in in hounding a harmless female school-teacher most
unfavourably vis-a-vis his and his colleagues' seeming indifference and/or
reluctance to go after Microsoft Corporation and its officers (based at
Redmond in Seattle, well within King County jurisdiction) for prima facie
grotesque breaches of United States laws, including (inter alia) the
Charter of the National Security Agency itself.

This is a matter of the utmost gravity for the constitutional rights of
all American Windows95 users in the US and elsewhere, who have thus been
rendered vulnerable to terrorist and criminal attack.

I pointed out very directly to Mr. Satterburg that many CIA and NSA
staffers were well aware of (and outraged by) these matters, and he could
perhaps start his invstigations by discussing these problems with them.

Indeed, this whole Microsoft Corporation affair is a matter of direct
and most basic concern to the entire North Atlantic Treaty Organization
(NATO) and all its members.

Inescapably obviously, Mr. Maleng and Mr. Satterburg are most unwilling to
pursue grotesque legal infractions when they involve a major Seattle
employer, powerful (and perhaps feared?) rogue elements in the intelligence
and security services, and the many extremely rich and powerful interests
who are gaining illicitly from criminal misconduct by enriching themselves
via illegally obtained 'commercial intelligence.'

'The Economist' writes:

(p. 48, July 26th, 1977, "Inside the Belly of the Beast')"

"When it comes to campaign finance, there is in fact a nasty, unspoken
bipartisan consensus: that both parties are addicted to massive
amounts of money, and they do not want to change the system that gives it
to them."

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[B] The 'alternatives' presented to Mary Kay Schmitz LeTourneau (and the
direct or indirect threats levelled against her) during the pre-trial
interrogations constitute unapccptable coercion, and a violation of her
rights, as well as an attempted pre-emption of the proper role of the

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[C] The Statute under which Mary Kay Schmitz LeTourneau is being accused
constitutes a direct attack on the role of the Judiciary, as well as being
in violation of accepted legal norms. It is also -- in my view -- a
Statute which violates the Separation of Powers by reason of the
Legislature's attempting a usurpation of the the proper functions of the
Judiciary to determine matters of fact, intention, and the moral content
of actions.

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[D] The Statute in question is quite certainly a gross example of that
most evil legal positivism which characterized Nazi Germany and Stalin's
USSR, whereby the 'law' was deemed to be whatever the State wanted it to
be. The Statute therefore violates the jurisprudential bases and character
of the entire United States legal system.

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[E] The Prosecution _agrees_ that whatever took place between Mary Kay
Schmitz LeTourneau and the then-13-year-old boy in the case took place
without any element of coercion or other imposition of will being present.
Yet -- by direct analogy -- the Prosecution would seek to assert that
(in Shakespeare's play) Romeo subjected Juliet to 'child rape', and -- in
present-day Seattle -- would be coerced to plead 'guilty' to 'child rape'
charges in direct and blatant contravention of the facts.

Such coercion is _grossly_ improper, and is in itself tantamout to an
interference with the accused's rights to plead and appeal directly to the
relevant courts themselves.

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[F] For a mother to be threatened with protracted and obligatory
psychiatric intervention and coercion intended to 'cure' her of her love
for her child's father is _completely unacceptable_ under all ethical and
human-rights principles. Such action would grossly violate the standards
of medical ethics of the relevant professional bodies, and constitutes
grounds for formal complaint thereto.

------------------- * * * * * ---------------

[G] As I have previously stated, Mr. Satterberg, Mr. Maleng and Ms.
Johnson will ineluctably be held directly and personally accountable for
every aspect of their actions in this (and any other relevant) case.

------------------- * * * * * ---------------


Why should I (and many others) be so concerned by the vicious prosecution
of Mary Kay Schmitz LeTourneau (and others who have physically harmed or
coerced no-one)?

I can find no better words than these.

"You and I have a rendezvous with Destiny. We can preserve for our
children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we can sentence them
to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at
least let our children and our childrens' children say of us that we
justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

-- Ronald Wilson Reagan, addressing the Republican Convention in Phoenix,
Arizona 33 years ago, on Barry Morris Goldwater's bid for the Presidency.
