Bikers' lawyer files civil rights suit against Vegas police

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nevada lawyer who represents motorcycle clubs has filed a
federal civil rights, false arrest and negligence lawsuit against Las Vegas
police after he was acquitted in March of a misdemeanor obstruction charge.

Stephen Stubbs alleges that a Las Vegas practice of harassing motorcycle
club members led to his arrest in November 2013, and that being found not
guilty by a local judge showed the arrest was improper.

Stubbs said he was prevented from representing a Bikers for Christ member
who was being questioned by police about a traffic violation outside a
motorcycle ministry meeting. Stubbs said Kevin Desmairas had a
constitutional right to have an attorney present during questioning.

Desmairas also is a plaintiff in the lawsuit filed Wednesday by attorney Cal
Potter. It seeks at least $75,000 in damages from the department and a
police lieutenant, Yasenia Yatomi.

Officer Larry Hadfield said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
doesn't comment on litigation.

Yatomi didn't immediately respond to a message left with Hadfield.

Stubbs is representing members of biker groups, including the Mongols,
Vagos, Stray Cats and Bandidos in a federal civil rights complaint filed in
June 2012 alleging harassment by Las Vegas and other area police. The
lawsuit is pending in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

It was filed a day after a meeting of Mongols national leaders in Boulder
City was monitored by hundreds of local and state police and federal agents.

Stubbs characterizes the bikers he represents as members of fraternal
organizations of motorcycle enthusiasts, while state and federal law
enforcement generally characterize the groups as outlaw criminal

Stubbs was sentenced last month to 18 months of probation after pleading
guilty in Las Vegas to unlawful notarization of a signature in a misdemeanor
case alleging he submitted fraudulent guilty plea agreements for clients.


Stubbs, hmm..let's see... Yes, that name is familiar. Stubbs was interviewed regarding the incident in Waco, and is the lawyer for many who were arrested. I put a Waco video of the interview on the front page of bikersmag. I thought his practice is in Texas, but I guess he takes Nevada cases also.

Re; Waco, There's nothing like a few silenced rifles and a few take-downs by the cops to get some bikers fighting each other. Personally, I think cops took the first shots, but they'll cover it up just like they are claiming they didn't fire indiscriminately into crowds with their silenced rifles.

Re: this Nevada crap, I hope you all know that if you have a Microsoft Windows product from Windows 7 to Windows 10, you have probably agreed to totally relinquish all your rights to privacy, and have lost all rights to suit for invasion of privacy. They can monitor your personal emails, browsing, your personal files, and other things. I've switched over to Linux for my email. I should probably also start using Tor and CGI browsers, ...again. It's not that I am doing anything wrong,... it is just that I still value privacy, and have a right to it.

If we have lost all our rights, woe is us.
