Judge Protects Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxer Who Blamed Trump; HELP ME APPEAL

By Debbie Schlussel


Back in September, I told you about the lawsuit I filed against the City of Ann Arbor to reveal the name of the Muslim woman who falsely claimed a hate crime hoax was committed against her because of the election of Donald Trump. Now I urgently need your help to appeal the unlawful ruling of a liberal Ann Arbor judge who ruled to keep her identity a secret, as well as a good deal of her police report.

As you probably recall, after Donald Trump was elected last November, three women in Ann Arbor–home to the University of Michigan–claimed that hate crimes were committed against them because of Trump’s election. It turned out at least two of those alleged hate crimes never happened, and the women made up their stories, wasting hours of police time and resources investigating the matters. Although the original hate crime allegations made international news–portraying Trump supporters as violent, racist bigots against Islam, the news that the alleged hate crimes were fabricated, barely made a splash.

I told you in September, even though he prosecuted the non-Muslim hate crime hoaxer at the time, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor refused to prosecute the Muslim woman, in a double standard of “justice.” I submitted a Freedom Of Information Act request to the Ann Arbor Police, requesting the names of the hate crime hoaxers. While the Ann Arbor Police leased the name and full, unredacted police report for the non-Muslim hate crime hoaxer (who was prosecuted), it refused to release the name of the Muslima hate crime hoaxer and gave me a heavily redacted police report.

I filed suit because Michigan law and several Michigan Court of Appeals cases hold that the name of the hate crime hoaxer should be released. Despite that, Washtenaw County Judge Timothy Connors refused to obey the law and ruled against me. So I must appeal, and appeals are expensive. The filing fees are at least $400, and there are other costs, such as transcripts copies, postage, gas and other legal fees. As I noted, Michigan law and the Michigan Court of Appeals cases are on my side, so I’m likely to win, but I need your help to pay for all of this to bring us to victory in court. This is a landmark case in the fight against sharia. While others claim to fight this, I’m actually doing it. And with your help, we will win.

Some of you have helped before, and I really appreciate it. But now that we are appealing, I need your help again today.

Your support means more efforts like those described herein. Principle is expensive and costly. But it’s worth it. I have a great lawyer, Daniel Lehman, and we will win this thing, with your help. We are filing our claim of appeal today, so I urgently need your help now.

At the hearing on my case, it was clear that Judge Connors, who is very liberal and has a history of being reversed on appeal, was going to rule against me and in favor of his liberal politics, no matter what and regardless of Michigan law, which is clearly and overwhelmingly on my site. When Judge Connors to the bench to rule against me in Ann Arbor, he hadn’t even read the key controlling Michigan Court of Appeals case on this issue, ESPN v. Michigan State University. In that case, ESPN wanted the names of student athletes to show that their treatment by prosecutors was different than that of general student population. I want the name of this false hate crime hoaxer to show that her treatment was different than that of non-Muslims in the general student population, including Halley Beth Bass, who was prosecuted for a filing a false hate crime report, when this woman was not. 

Liberal Ann Arbor Judge Timothy Connors Tried to Keep Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxer’s Name Secret

The ESPN case says that revelation of her name will NOT reveal personal, private, or intimate information, just as it said the same about the names of the athletes in the ESPN case and ordered those names revealed.  Just as the Court ruled that the athletes’ names must be revealed in the ESPN case, the court here should order them to be revealed. But Judge Connors, who was unprepared at the hearing (as I’m told he typically is), didn’t care. He quickly left the bench in the middle of the hearing in order to rapidly read the case and twist its holding to rule against me. As I noted, he has a history of being reversed on appeal and other lawyers tell me he admits that on the bench–telling parties that he will probably be reversed and that they should hire a certain Ann Arbor lawyer to take it up with the Court of Appeals. As I’ve noted before, the woman in this case–the Muslim hate crime hoaxer–has no right to privacy under the law. She is a perpetrator, NOT a victim. And she is also a public figure. There is absolutely no legal basis to shield her name from public scrutiny, pursuant to a FOIA request–my FOIA request.

But we need to fight the good fight at the far-less-political Michigan Court of Appeals level to get justice. And I hope you’ll help me to get it done.

As I’ve said before, I’m not a big operation, just a one (wo)man shop. But I think I do more to fight the encroachment of Islamic extremism in America than others who shriek on FOX News and/or demand money to fund billboards and bus ads promoting their personal websites. Those attention-whores have done nothing to actually fight the encroachment of Islam on America. I’m doing it, though, through this and other lawsuits and many other things I’ve done that you’ve read about on this site over the years. And I’ve gotten a lot of Muslim death threats in the process. But I proceed because it’s important work, and we cannot cave to extremists. This is America. Fight for it.

I’d really appreciate your support and help in my efforts. My operation is lean and mean and gets things done. Please help me fight the dhimmi power.

This is my statement to MLIVE/Ann Arbor News–the only media source covering the case (the rest of the media want to cover up this double standard of justice and the fact that Muslims get different, more favorable treatment under the law than everybody else):

We are appealing. The key case here is the ESPN case, which mirrors my situation almost exactly.  And the Court of Appeals held that the names should be released, so that the requester and the public could determine whether or not there is a double standard in justice in the way the unnamed suspects were treated versus the way the general population is treated when being accused of perpetrating the same crime.  That is exactly the case here, with the only difference being that in the ESPN case, it was athletes whose names were being protected by the authorities that illegally refused to provide the FOIA-requested information.  In this case, it is a Muslim woman.  But that is a distinction without a difference.  The information must be released per the ESPN v. MSU decision.  I was not at the hearing.  But I understand that, unfortunately, the Judge–who had not even prepared and read the case prior to the motion hearing–left the bench to quickly read the case and twisted it to fit his politics and desire not to abide by Michigan FOIA law.  He has a long track record of doing this and being reversed.  It is my belief the Michigan Court of Appeals will reaffirm its ESPN decision and reverse him.

Here is an excerpt from MLIVE/Ann Arbor News:

[Schlussel attorney Daniel] Lehman argued the woman was a public figure whose actions prompted widespread criticism of Trump supporters on social media.

“This case was used to paint a large swath of the population as complete dirtbags,” Lehman said at the previous hearing. “It was to show (that) these are the people that supported this candidate. This false police report was used to besmirch millions of names… It was used as anecdotal evidence that the world has gone to hell now that Trump was elected.”

Schlussel plans to appeal the judge’s decision, citing a lawsuit ESPN filed against Michigan State University after the school redacted the names of student-athletes in police incident reports requested by the media organization.
The Michigan Court of Appeals ultimately sided with ESPN, saying the public interest in the FOIA request – to see if student-athletes receive preferential treatment – outweighed any invasion of privacy concerns.

Schlussel believes the ESPN case “mirrors my situation almost exactly.” 

“…The Court of Appeals held that the names should be released, so that the requester and the public could determine whether or not there is a double standard in justice in the way the unnamed suspects were treated versus the way the general population is treated when being accused of perpetrating the same crime,” Schlussel said via email. “That is exactly the case here, with the only difference being that in the ESPN case, it was athletes whose names were being protected by the authorities that illegally refused to provide the FOIA-requested information.  In this case, it is a Muslim woman.  But that is a distinction without a difference.”

Schlussel said she couldn’t be at the hearing when Judge Connors granted the city’s motion to dismiss the case, but claims that he read the case too quickly and “twisted it to fit his politics and desire not to abide by Michigan FOIA law. ”

“It is my belief the Michigan Court of Appeals will reaffirm its ESPN decision and reverse him,” she said.

Again, I hope you’ll help me in this fight–OUR fight. I may be pursuing this battle, but this is for all of us.

To me Ms. Schlussel, this judge, Mr. Connors sounds like a crooked and corrupt judge who refuses to do his job in the precise details, of letting his worldly philosophical-views cloud up his cognitive thinking, whilst during court with his career.

I’m not surprised that this judge isn’t fired for refusing to do his job, think about it, when you’re working for a corporate-company, it is your obligation to follow all of the essential details of that company that you’re employed by, and NOT let your preconceived unilateral view get between you and your career/job.

And I can’t suspect that this judge is possibly receiving “Arab” money from Muslim entity-organizations in Michigan flowing to him on why he dismissed your case (when I first read this a few weeks ago Debbie, I was a little disappointed and wasn’t stunned) in court of hiding the Muslima girl’s name on her falsifiable accusations that Trump supporters physically attacked her, where as you’ve detailed that there isn’t any degree of citation proof of her story being true, and it’s therefore a “negative” that the Muslim girl did where her story isn’t at all true, but rather fake!

    FFS SeanR, is it beyond your wit to construct at least one coherent sentence in the English language?

    Fred Hammond on November 17, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      FFS “Fred Hammond”, who made you the arbiter of “language arts” by grammar policing me?

      I know what I’ve argued in my original comment where I gave my two cents and a little theory of the OT instead of deflecting it that has no premise to the conversation.

      Sean R. on November 20, 2017 at 4:45 pm

        Do yourself a big favour and invest in a remedial English class. You’ll stop making a fool of yourself.

Find an attorney who is trying to make a name for themselves. They may help you in exchange for the high profile advertising.
There are 7 exemptions under federal FOIA, don’t know about MI exemptions, but MI may copy them. If so, process/procedures (reasons for decisions and administrative procedures) within the government, and information regarding on-going cases are probably exempt from disclosure. Doubtful a court will rule against that.

Just note: Judges protect themselves. Also, for information purposes plese Find out if the judge is a freemason (and update your posting with the results. Perhaps he is answering to higher authority.

The Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxer is definitely not the victim here. The public is actually the victim. And contrary to the judge’s intellectually dishonest conclusion (if his conclusion may be deemed “intellectual”), this hoax case and the perpetrator is obviously a matter of “public interest.”

Here are some reasons:

1. The woman’s false claim led to the misallocation of substantial public funds and resources by the prosecution and the Ann Arbor PD.

2. The woman’s false claim led to the misallocation of substantial public funds and resources by the University of Michigan, which receives public funds.

3. The woman’s false claim led to the misallocation of substantial public funds and resources by the FBI.

4. The woman’s purported hate crime claim was publicized by nationally distributed publications, including the Washington Post, as evidence of hate crimes against Muslims and others.

5. The Southern Poverty Law Center, CAIR, and numerous other national organizations immediately referred to the purported claim as evidence of hate crimes against Muslims and others.

6. Media nationalized the story by linking it to Trump’s election and his proposals to limit immigration and by linking it to “white supremacists” to attempt to persuade the public of their thesis that Trump has encouraged hate crimes.

7. When a similar bogus claim was made by a Muslim woman in New York and the claim was determined to be false, the New York PD arrested Yasmin Seweid, the woman who made the false claim and charged her with obstructing governmental administration and filing a false report. That case was widely publicized and was obviously a matter of public interest. The main difference was that the identity and photo of the woman in the New York case WAS reported in the Chicago Tribune, the New York Daily News and many other publications. See: Also, see Also, see The fact that the Ann Arbor PD failed to file felony charges in the instant case in no way detracts from the public’s interest in the case. In fact, the opposite is true. The identity of the woman is, even more, a matter of public interest because she, unlike the New York Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxer, got away with carrying out what should have been a felony, except for the local double standard in the instant case.

8. The failure to disclose the name of the individual filing the false charge in the instant case goes against public policy because it encourages others to file false claims and, in fact, REWARDS and INCENTIVIZES individuals for filing false claims and for wasting valuable public funds and resources. Additionally, the instant case could lead to the innocent people being charged with “hate crimes” based on future such false charges.

I could go on, but you get the idea. Furthermore, any private interest that plaintiff Schussel might personally and potentially have in “outing” the perpetrator of the public hoax is irrelevant and a red herring. In fact, the more I think of this case, the more this travesty of justice makes me angry. Go get ’em, Debbie!

PS: For an instance of how some publications even twist a true story to their biases, compare the Newsweek story with the New York Daily News story on which it was based. Newsweek immediately demonstrates its bogus spin, with the headline, “Yasmin Seweid’s Arrest Highlights Pressures On Some Muslim Teenage Girls.” Get it? Newsweek posits that some Muslim girls are pressured into filing false hate crimes. Then they quote the hoaxer’s father that his daughter is “a bright, good girl.” Newsweek also falsely suggests that Seweid had her head shaved as either contrition for the felony or because her father was angry that she committed a felony. But the New York Daily indicates otherwise. The New York Daily News wrote that Seweid “was allegedly forced by her parents to shave her head over the incident because they were upset she was dating a Christian.” The felony itself had nothing to do with her head getting shaved; although, perhaps getting CAUGHT lying may have played a part as well. Not lying; just getting caught!

I know you will win on appeal! I am very appreciative of all you do to showcase the scourge of ISLAM.

All across the country Judges go against the Constitution and protect people when the laws call for transparency and due process. I am sick of it. They even hold up legitimate FOIA requests and (unsealed) photos in criminal law cases.

This lying Mooooooslima doesn’t deserve protection. She needs to be exposed and named because she proves the good guys are RIGHT! Horrible dhimmi Judge!!!

Skunky on November 16, 2017 at 7:19 pm

so how did he spin it?

markcon1776 h on November 16, 2017 at 7:42 pm

Above all, I want to see this criminal judge in jail!

Over time I’ve come to realize that the Stockholm Syndrome liberals display for Islam is not far removed from the Stockholm Syndrome Republicans display for Democrats. There’s no bi-partisan solution in Trump/Bernie World. So my advice is only this – fight.

Mochizuki Koga on November 18, 2017 at 2:06 am

The perhaps ironic reason libs never question Islam is that despite appearances they never really question their frame of reference as progressive/superior observers. If progressives overtly challenged the idea that they were more advanced they wouldn’t be progressives.
They can only challenge it indirectly by letting Islam do the hard work for them and this a yuge relief for them. Yuge!

Mochizuki Koga on November 18, 2017 at 3:27 am

Disregarding my previous frustrated comments I wish you nothing but success Debbie. G-d bless you and thank you for everything you do.

Some judges are simply unfit to judge.
