When the Brooklyn Lyceum gets done fighting over a non-trivial set of procedural due process violations ...
Blink Fitness could be out in the cold...
When due process returns,
we will have our own membership club.
Some fitness, some social, some educational,
some entertainment, some food, some drink.
Take a fully refundable leap into a one year membership.
At least 5,000 square feet, and, maybe,
up to 15,000 square feet of club space.

--Between now and the time the LYCEUM DUE PROCESS TRAIN gets into the station, we are seeking people to help raise awareness.
--Those who help raise awareness can get curatorial votes they can exercise to influence progaramming at the Brooklyn Lyceum or at any interim proxy location.
--You get votes by reviewing a few lines/dates in a few documents and sending us affidavits stating what you see (no conclusions of law necessary).
--You also get votes by appearing at crucial moments/hearings or by distributing fliers.
--Those votes can be exercised, proxied, transferred ore returned (back to the Lyceum in exchange for Lyceum staff hours for a cause on an expanding list of causes).
--If that is too much work, just cast a few votes about what you think about some simple STUPIDS a few judges have accomplished.
based on record provided to the Court by the Plaintiff.)
in avoiding that original judicial checkmate
(failure to serve our atty any papers, AND,
notice to appear a decade in the past,
no matter whom was served, AND,
granting relief not requested, AND,
granting relief unavailable under statute cited, AND,
premising decision on two non-existent sworn statements).

Also, unwinnable situation won by resetting the rules by Captain James T. Kirk - Star Trek: TOS (Kobayashi Maru).

to do what Judge Donald Scott Kurtz was required by law to do:
(dismiss case as abandoned, based on record before the court at the time), or,
- to do what the court must now do:
(unwind the Foreclosure Sale of the Brooklyn Lyceum as well as the Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale that allowed it for, at a minimum, failure to serve any papers on Lyceum attorney)
given what Judges Reinaldo E. Rivera, John M. Leventhal, Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix and Valerie Brathwaite Nelson did do
(find October 17, 2012 came AFTER October 26, 2012 & alter the docket to insert appearance by Lyceum attorney in order to avoid dismissal as abandoned)
so that we can implement that programming when we get rolling, whether at the actual Brooklyn Lyceum or an interim one.
--YOU CAN ... participate in programming the Lyceum

-- As we seek to provide programming
for when the Brooklyn Lyceum (or any interim proxy) returns,
we need to see a LOT
of music, theatre, dance, comedy, etc.
-- To that end, we are accepting invitations
to see such work
to investigate if that work (or that group)
would be a good fit for the Lyceum (or any interim proxy).
-- In addition, we are also open to invitations
to see work for an actual written review
(whether or not there is any intent to present at the Lyceum).
We will post the review online, send it to email and social media, where appropriate.
-- If that interests you or your group, pursue that at OOBLE.ORG
more flavor, less labor.
from our espresso cellar!
-- 15 years of a Brooklyn theatre/coffee shop/cafe and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy taught us that there is another, better, more ecological, way to get the most out of your espresso.
-- When the espresso dusts dust settles, the new boss may well be different than the old boss.
--Till then we are pulling espresso shots the SwaSlu way, on the muddy road again!
--We make it a point not to be a roaster and will be highlight a cornucopia of espresso roasts at some home bases, some events, some markets and some fairs.
--Interested in better americanos/lattes than you could ever do at home?

Captain Kirk would have a tough time with Brooklyn Courts
Star Trek's Captain Kirk re-programmed a Star Fleet Academy simulation that was designed to have the Star Fleet candidate either lose his ship, himself and all his crew in battle or lose a freighter (the Kobayashi Maru) in the Neutral Zone.
That was a situation no one could win, a Catch-22. In Brooklyn Courts we have a worse situation, judges re-programming (altering) the docket to avoid what the record and the abandonment statute, CPLR 3215(c) required, dismissal of the case as abandoned.
The Brooklyn Lyceum, aka Public Bath #7 (by Raymond Francis Almirall), a community fixture for 20 years as a theater / cafe / gym / batting cage, needs your help, a couple of affidavits, and, if it works with your schedule, an appearance here and there to let the courts know someone is watching.
The courts (lower and appellate), in an ill advised attempt to short circuit due process for the Brooklyn Lyceum (made up multiple dispositive facts, selectively quoted caselaw, altered the docket for the benefit of the Plaintiff, ignored attorney perjury, ...), created a winnable battle for the Brooklyn Lyceum in that, under the altered record:
- Plaintiff failed to serve initial Notice of Motion (or any papers whatsoever) on Lyceum Attorney.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion cites, as the required document, an affidavit that does not exist.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion dated October 13, 2009 cites non-existent, and impossible, October 26, 2009 Affidavit.
- Plaintiff Notice of Motion asks for relief (Judgment of Foreclosure and Order of Reference) under a statute that does not allow for Judgment of Foreclosure or Order of Reference.
- Decision by Judge Donald Scott Kurtz is premised on two affidavits that do not exist, one cited to by the Plaintiff in the motions papers, and, one out of whole judicial cloth.
- Same Decision grants relief not requested in Motion (Judgment of Default) and relief not available under the statute presented as the basis for the Motion (Order of Reference).
- Another Notice of Motion, to foreclose on the Lyceum, notices everyone on March 18, 2011, to attend a hearing on April 17, 2001, A DECADE IN THE PAST!!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Read, and mentally process, all the tabs. We know it will take some effort, but the payoff is worth it. If you already believe us and want to dig right in, read and become one with the 4 RED tabs.
- Sign & send a couple of affidavits regarding what you have processed regarding the bullet points above.
- If it works with your schedule, show up at a hearing on occasional basis.
- Or, if direct participation is not your bag, buy things from brooklynlycem.com/viewart or roxysteeparlour.com .
- Or, if you just want to help in the least involvement way possible, give $$ to the cause (https://brooklynlyceum.com/viewart/5) that may entail a new attorney and two projects to help keep this from happening to other people.
THE PAYOFF: Convert your affidavits and our use of your affidavits or your appearance at some hearings or your contributions into curatorial voting rights when the Brooklyn Lyceum rises from the ashes. Help program a venue that has seen the likes of Fiona Apple, Amanda Palmer, Vernon Reid, Yo La Tengo,
Marc Ribot, Jose Gonzalez, and scores of others.
