Mr Bikle currently has filed two appeals in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit seeking to overturn the dismissal with prejudice of his suits in the California Central District Court. Between the two filings the appellees include various Superior Court officials, Deputies Santos and Hayes of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, two unknown individuals who work for that department, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, Los Angeles County, and the City of Lakewood in Los Angeles County.
What brought on this action? On 24 Oct 2011 Mr Bickle was involved in an automobile accident in a casino parking lot. When Deputy Santos arrived on the scene, he asked for Mr Bickle's driver's licence and insurance documents. It turned out that Mr Bickle had neither and the Deputy wrote him a citation for that.
Now eventually the case was dismissed by the Superior Court Judge for, as stated in the dismissal order,
"the number of changes made to the appearance date and the changes to the citation, the lack of information provided by the clerk's office as to when the motion was being heard, and in light of the fact that the record does not sufficiently indicate when the matter should have been set for arraignment, thus creating confusion and possible delays in process"
Now most people would have been happy with that result but not our Mr Bickle. He wants his pound of flesh from anyone involved.
He filed a complaint on 19 Jun 2013 in the US District Court, Central District of CA, alleging various civil rights violations against him by court officials related to his appearance in the superior court and against the public at large. This was dismissed with prejudice as being frivolous on 26 Jul 2013 and an appeal of that decision was made to the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Aug 2013.
On 23 Oct Mr Bickle filed a suit naming the deputies, LA Sheriff's Department, etc for the violation of his rights, seeking to stop the "ongoing wrongs" occurring in LA County and seeking damages. This too was dismissed with prejudice for being frivolous on 13 Dec 2013 and a 2nd appeal was launched in US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on 13 Jan 2014.
Mr Bickle filed his brief for the first appeal on 7 Apr 2014 and his brief for the second on 28 Aug 2014, which is apparently where matters stand at this time.
He has posted various videos on YouTube related to these actions.
