Mobile phone Class Action Lawsuit in the USA

Portable radio-damaged citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany have
now the possibility of suing portable radio operators via the USA for
payment of damages and/or compensations in Germany. The principle is
simple: Several plaintiffs are litigating representatively for a group
of further concerned. The met decision applies to everyone, the gained
sum is divided.  Possible is a complaint in the USA if a German
enterprise in the USA has financial interests there. This might be given
in any case if shares are acted there or participations in US
enterprises are held. Advantage of the procedure: economically (small
court fees in the USA), as a rule, no cost carrying obligation in the
case of defeat.

The taken over lawyer agency in the USA is the one from attorney Richard
Middleton from the law office Suggs, Kelly & Middleton in Savannah,
Georgia.  The law office is engaged for over 20 years in questions of
the consumer protection. Closer information is callable in the internet
under http://www.suggskelly.com <http://www.suggskelly.com/ .

Attorney Middleton had already cases of asbestos before court, with
which he represented up to 5000 persons (one calls legal proceedings
with a large number of humans with the same problem in the USA “Class
Action Cases”), also schools participated. From the agrarian industry he
had cases of air and water pollution and cases of lead and tungsten
carbide poisonings with children. His law firm consists of 15 lawyers. 
With the network of attorney Middleton there are good chances to
represent successfully the interests of the affected.

German connecting lawyer to attorney Middleton is attorney Lutz Kaiser,
Rheinstr. 2, 76532 Baden-Baden, phone 004972 21 99 23 90, fax 004972 21
99 23 91.

To the fee: in the USA another system of lawyer rewards exists for
class-action-lawsuits (only on success fee basis). In the case of not
successful, nothing is charged. If a fee is determined, the court must
approve it. It can be up to 25% of the gained sum. With comparisons out
of the court, individually also 35-40% can be determined. The financial
main case risk is at the law office Suggs, Kelly & Middleton.  Also with
possible appeal proceedings, the risk of costs is at the law office
Suggs, Kelly & Middleton. The cause of action are obsolescence at
properties, houses and agricultural assets. Proofs can be furnished over
consultants, e.g. the obsolescence by mobile basis stations can be rated
from them and/or by the ring of German brokers where already some
brokers regard portable radio plants as obsolescence, concerning the
sale and the letting of real estate. In addition it comes to it, that
houses/buildings are becoming possibly uninhabitable and/or not more
usable in the originally foreseen form, e.g. kindergarten, school,
agricultural property, farmers can claim also obsolescence for cattle
and yard (indirect damages with animals: the animal is exposed to the
radiation on property = obsolescence.

Also shielding costs of the house or the freehold flat can be claimed.
There is an objective obsolescence (= measurably) and there is a felt
obsolescence. This is also to complain.

If the mobile phone radio transmitter is visible, this already alone can
hold back potential buyers = obsolescence.  Even if the antenna does not
send yet this is a case of obsolescence, it can go on transmission
already tomorrow. If antennas are planned, but not yet working, also a
case of obsolescence is present. Attorney Middleton recommends in this
case to participate therefore preventively in the complaint.

Attorney Middleton suggests addressing also the neighbours and activate
them to take part in this lawsuit. If necessary it would be also
conceivable for concerned persons to underwrite neighbours.

Austrians and Swiss and other injured persons from other countries can
participate also in the class-action-lawsuit.  If American citizens, who
have their land properties in Germany or in other foreign countries,
would participate in the lawsuit, this would continue to rise the
success of the complaint.

To the distance range of the antenna, starting from which one can follow
the complaint, attorney Middleton says: "You can see the tower! That's
the point."

Since it is condition-legally illegal that the lawyers take over also
external costs (consultant, translator etc..), only for these costs an
advance payment would have to be contributed. One assumes approx. 250
persons will take part in the procedure. From the lawyers it is assured
a limitation of costs with 50.000,00 Euro altogether for all costs for
all participants. If more persons should take part, a proportionate
amount is returned. If less than 250 persons take part, the further
procedure is agreed upon with all mandators. If the procedure can not be
continued, the deposited amount is refunded. Likewise remaining
contributions are returned back. A trust account was opened.

The above passage of the costs limitation on altogether 50,000 Euro for
all instances for all participants is a new fact and is noted on the
certificate of authority of the attorneys expressly. This passage could
be achieved by intensive negotiations with the attorneys and closes
costs for all participants altogether with 50.000 Euro for all instances.

Important it is therefore that as much as possible take part. A larger
number of plaintiffs means: it is more to complain and it develops fewer
costs for the particular. So it is possible to represent a great many of
affected. That is the procedure with a “good” case, i.e. a US lawyer
will get involved in the substantial process risk of costs (possibly
some hundred thousand US dollars) only, if the chances stand well to win
the process.  More under:

Urgent Response to Sianette Kwee
Sianette Kwee has  asked for suggestions for the TV show,   and what 
should be said about the WHO if it comes up-  I beg you to bring the WHO
issue up, and not wait  for someone else to bring it up,  before they
start to cite the WHO's "safe" standard and you will not have time to
react.  It should be brought up anyway in my opinion- The WHO is the
main body that is responsible in a  direct way: All the governments in
the world  act  by directions that come from the top body- the WHO-they
cite the WHO's reports for their public health policy, it's their main
reference. The standards, everything. Especially Europe as the WHO is a
european body. The WHO  is responsible for the health of the people in
the world. How does it look like,  that the person who is the main
player in this issue,  Dr. Michael Repacholi,  found 2.4 fold icrease in
lymphoma in rats exopsed to GSM phone radiation - the same one that the
danish children use heavily- and kept the results silent for two years,
because he was funded by Telstra, the biggest australian cellular
company? How does it look like when he said that "it's only mice"
instead of warning the public?  How does it look like that he said to
the australian senatte that he thinks it was an non-heat effect?  (I
will give you the source if you need), How does it looks like that he
said that the worst effect of the cellular phone is that it disturbs his
meals at the restaurants? (microwave news). I think this subject has to
be brought up in every country in the world on public T.V,  and I ask
now,  what I think is the most important thing here: How does it look
like if we don't raise this issue up- publically? To know this and shut
up?  I think it's a very big mistake to ignore it.   Every person should
know this as common knowledge:  To understand who are the people who
pull the strings of our lives, and to ask-  How can we allow them to
control us? This is simply making a joke from all the world poplution! 
It should be discussed openly in nations, on T.V.  I think you will
surprise many people with these facts,  even some of the poiticians that
come to the discussion.


New Israeli Study-Cell Phone is a germ host
"Yes, it's convenient that your doctor has a cell phone, but you can pay
a health price for this access: The cell phone can be a host for
Acinetobacter baumannii, a stubborn germ that can become resistant to
most antibiotic types, and to survive on objects for a long time.

That's what was found in a new israeli study which was done in Soroka
Medical Center, the head of the study was Dr. Jakob Gilad. The germ was
found on 12% of the mobile phones and on 24% of the 71 doctors and 53
nurses hands. This in spite of the fact that the cellular phone use is
banned in all the hospitals because it interferes monitors and pacemakers.

It was found that 10% of these germs were resistant to the strongest
antibiotics. The risk that healthy people will be infected and get sick
is low, but the germ can be fatal for people who are very sick or have a
weak immune system. According to Dr. Gilad, doctors can use mobiles if
they simply wash hands before and after they use it."

Gro Brundtland on RF radiation
I heard Gro Brundtland (recently resigned director-general of WHO) speak
a few weeks ago and asked her if she thought that RF radiation posed a
threat to public health. She responded with the story of how she became
sensitized (from an arcing microwave oven at close range which damaged
her eyes) to cell phone radiation (she now gets headaches when in
proximity). She said she knew that it was difficult to get clear
evidence from the studies yet, but from personal experience she knows it
can affect humans. She expressed concern about sensitive people and
about what might happen in the future to the youth who are using cell
phones now.  I am trying to get an opportunity to hear the tape of her
lecture on global health threats in which she answered this question in
order to get her exact quotes.

Dear Don

The Dutch 3G paper was interesting. Note they published it themselves so
it isn't in the "official peer reviewed literature", despite it actually
being quite well peer-reviewed. That also happened to Kjell Mild's et
al's big Swedish/Norwegian National Institute of Working Life
publication a few years ago. Despite it being reviewed by Repacholi,
Swicord, and many other leading researchers it isn't in the "official
peer reviewed literature".

The response at 1 V/m does not surprise me. We have been extensively
experimenting with shielding bedrooms and beds from GSM microwaves and
in one case the shielding material we used worked brilliantly at first
(down from 1 to 2 V/m to about 0.02 V/m) but broke down due to faulty
manufacture. The woman slept well for the first few weeks but they said
it was gradually getting worse. We dismissed it (it was not easy to
visit) and she eventually said it had become almost useless. We then
went back and revisted her and she was proved right (despite our
previous, incorrect, re-assurances!) and the signal strength was up to
about 0.7 to 1 V/m again - at that was badly disturbing her sleep.

WHO is in bed with the power and cellular phone industries. There was a
two-day international workshop meeting organised by the UK NRPB, WHO,
and ICNIRP in September 1998 on "Exposure Metrics and Dosimetry for EMF
Epidemiology". I repeatedly asked to attend but was told that there
wasn't room and it was only for very senior international researchers.

When the proceedings were published in Radiation Protection Dosimetery,
Vol 83 Nos1-2, 1999, (a special edition), it was clear that there would
have been space as there were only 49 attendees in the NRPB training
venue that can hold in excess of 100. Within this 49 there were: Jo-Anne
Basile, Vice President of the US CTIA and a non-scientist, many industry
personel (power and telecoms) including Tony Weiner from T-Mobile who is
also a non-scientist.

Note this "Public Science Meeting" was paid for by: Mobile Manufacturers
Forum (Alcatel, Ericsson, Mitsubishi, Motorola, and Nokia), The GSM MoU
Association, and National Grid Company plc, UK.

Also for the WHO precautionary meeting held last February in Luxembourg,
I asked for a representative to attend, but was told "we already have
our activist" (Eva Marsalek - and Mike Repacholi would not tell me how
they came to select her . . . . ).  Anyway kicked up quite a fuss in
ways they found difficult to resist and they eventually (and grudgingly)
allowed Prof Mike O'Carroll to attend as our representative (at our
expense, of course).

Now Mike Dolan, who is a lawyer and heads up the UK Mobile Operators
Association and John Swanson who has long worked for UK National Grid
were allowed to attend as "observers" - but, when there, were then given
the right to participate fully on equal terms with the independent
scientific delegates.  In fact their input was both considered and
helpful, but the PROCESS was inappropriate and shielded from public view.

Enough said about WHO, ICNIRP and NRPB and their allegiances.

The crap BrJCancer paper by Lloyd et al a couple on months ago was
carried out at the UK NRPB and the CONTROLS were subject to up to 1
microtesla 50 Hz field from flux leakage and from incomplete field
cancellation in the reverse phased coils they used around the controls.
It should have never got past peer review – whoever reviewed it were
either ignorant or incompetent or wanting to publish a negative EMF
effects paper. We are formally complaining about BrJCan and CanResUK who
own it. This is the second time the BrJCan editor has added a
"powerlines cleared of leukaemia" comment and press release about a
paper that was not even related to powerlines. The Llloyd research used
field strengths way above any environmental levels near to powerlines so
should not be cited / commented on in  that way.

Very best wishes

Comment Dr Miguel Muntané :

The response at 1 V/m does not surprise me: Alasdair Philips's reply and
Practical Censorship in “official” health information.

September 1998 on "Exposure Metrics and Dosimetry for EMF Epidemiology".
I repeatedly asked to attend but was told that there wasn't room and it
was only for very senior international researchers.

WHO precautionary meeting held last February in Luxembourg, I asked for
a representive to attend but was told "we already have our activist"
(Eva Marsalek - and Mike Repacholi would not tell me how they came to
select her . . . . ).

2. Censorship in health information?: it isn't in the "official peer
reviewed literature".
Despite it being reviewed by Repacholi, Swicord, and many other leading
researchers it isn't in the "official peer reviewed literature".

3. POWER INVESTIGATED?: just 1 V/m = 0.26 microW/cm2.
The “official” power can reach 450. microW/cm2

One mobile phone can reach more the 2,250 microW/cm2  in the hand and brain.
