Firewall : the Iran-Contra conspiracy and cover-up by Lawrence E Walsh ( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this historic, first-person account, the independent counsel in the Iran-Contra investigation exposes the extraordinary duplicity of the highest officials of Ronald Reagan's administration and the paralyzing effects of the cover-up that Judge Lawrence Walsh and his associates unraveled. Iran-Contra was far more than a rogue operation conceived and executed by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North with the backing of National Security Advisor John Poindexter, as the Reagan administration claimed. It was instead a conspiracy that drew in the chief actors of that administration: President Reagan, Vice President George Bush, Director of Central Intelligence William Casey, Secretary of State George Shultz, Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, and Attorney General Edwin Meese, among others. With the president's support, the United States attempted to trade arms for hostages held by Iranian terrorists, then retained part of the proceeds from these undercover sales in Swiss bank accounts, where the secret money funded the guerrilla activities of the Nicaraguan Contras, a counter-revolutionary group that Congress had specifically forbidden the administration to support. An experienced and steely prosecutor, Judge Walsh built a powerful team of young lawyers to pursue the truth of the Iran-Contra affair through painstaking interrogations and reviews of hundreds of thousands of documents. His team confronted daunting barriers: some of the key players were given grants of immunity by Congress's own (and sometimes hindering) investigation, government agencies twisted claims of national security in order to hide the true nature of their activities, administration officials told outright lies in sworn testimony, and Republican leaders attempted to drown the investigation in a massive flow of often irrelevant material. In Firewall, Judge Walsh discloses the strategies that led to the felony convictions of North and Poindexter, and the blow to their investigation when these convictions were overturned on appeal. Persevering, Judge Walsh and his associates successfully prosecuted six more officials, including former National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane and Assistant Secretary of State Elliott Abrams, and obtained an indictment of Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, all of whom were eventually pardoned by President Bush in the waning days of his presidency. Firewall draws on testimony and evidence that place ultimate responsibility for the Iran-Contra scandal and its cover-up where it belongs - at the top of two administrations. It leaves no lingering doubts that the "honorable men" who pretended to be out of the loop were actually caught in a web of deception for which they had only themselves to blame

Demetrio P. Rodriguez, et al., plaintiffs v. San Antonio Independent School District, et al., defendants : civil action no. 68-175-SA by Demetrio P Rodriguez ( )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This suit attacking the Texas system of financing public education was initiated by Mexican-American parents whose children attend the elementary and secondary schools in the Edgewood Independent School District, an urban school district in San Antonio, Texas. They brought a class action on behalf of school children throughout the State who are members of minority groups or who are poor and reside in school districts having a low property tax base. Named as defendants were the State Board of Education, the Commissioner of Education, the State Attorney General, and the Bexar County (San Antonio) Board of Trustees. The complaint was filed in the summer of 1968, and a three-judge court was impaneled in January, 1969. In December, 1971, the panel rendered its judgment in a per curiam opinion holding the Texas school finance system unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The State appealed, and we noted probable jurisdiction to consider the far-reaching constitutional questions presented. 406 U.S. 966 (1972). For the reasons stated in this opinion, we reverse the decision of the District Court

In the matter of John W. Burke, individually and as town supervisor of the Town of Oyster Bay and the Town of Oyster Bay, petitioners, against the New York State Public Service Commission and the New York Telephone Company, respondents by New York (State) ( Book )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Petitioners Town of Oyster Bay and Nassau County, in June and November of 1971, respectively, filed applications with the telephone company requesting the standard municipal discount which were rejected. On November 16, 1971 the Public Service Commission, after receiving complaints from several towns and counties, ordered an investigation into the telephone company's practice of granting municipal discounts. At the time of this investigation discounts were in effect for all cities served by the company, for 272 of the 323 villages and for 5 towns. After several hearings, the commission ruled the company's municipal discount policy unreasonably discriminatory against towns and ordered such practice terminated by a five-year phase out, except as to those municipalities contractually entitled to such discounts by virtue of agreements made prior to September 1, 1910. The commission also concluded that New York City's 25% discount, which had been granted in 1905, was voluntary and not based on a binding contract between the city and the company, and should, therefore, be eliminated over the five-year period. The Town of Oyster Bay, the County of Nassau and the City of New York thereafter petitioned pursuant to article 78 to review this determination. All of the proceedings have been transferred here and consolidated by order of this court. The Town of Oyster Bay and Nassau County agree that the company's denial of a municipal discount to towns and counties is unreasonably discriminatory. They contend that since such discrimination was found to exist, a 25% standard discount must be granted to them until such time as no municipality is receiving it. They maintain further that they are entitled to the discount retroactive to the date when applications for same were first made, and demand refunds for such period. We are of the opinion that the commission's denial of a standard discount to petitioners over the five-year phasing out period and refusal to order refunds for such discount retroactive to the date of application was warranted. The commission's authority to implement its finding of unreasonable discrimination is found in subdivision 1 of section 97 which provides where pertinent: "Whenever the commission shall be of the opinion, after a hearing, had upon its own motion or upon a complaint that * * * the practices of any * * * telephone corporation affecting * * * [its] rates, charges, rentals or service are * * * unjustly discriminatory or unduly preferential or in anywise in violation of law * * * the commission shall * * * determine the just and reasonable rates, charges and rentals to be thereafter observed * * * notwithstanding that a higher or lower rate, charge or rental has been theretofore prescribed by general or special statute, contract, grant, franchise condition, consent or other agreement and shall fix the same by order * * * by which such rates, charges or rentals are thereafter to be observed. * * * Any such change in rate, charge or rental shall be upon such terms, conditions or safeguards as the commission may prescribe.")
The City of New York, plaintiff, against The New York Telephone Company, defendant ; Grassroots Action, Inc. and John B. O'Sullivan, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, plaintiffs, against New York Telephone Company, defendant by United States ( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Appellants, the City of New York, Grassroots Action Inc., and John B. O'Sullivan, initiated suit against the New York Telephone Company in the district court on February 8 and 10, 1972, asserting violation of the Economic Stabilization Act of 1970,1 as amended in 1971,2 seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against an increase in the Company's New York intrastate rates approved by the New York State Public Service Commission on January 17, 1972, which were then under active review by the Price Commission. Despite allegations of failure to comply with the Price Commission's procedural regulations,3 the district court, 339 F. Supp. 198, on March 1, 1972, dismissed both complaints holding that appellants were required to submit their contentions initially to the Price Commission. This appellants did not do. On March 30, 1972, the Price Commission gave final approval to the Company's rate increase. 4 The instant appeals raised two questions. First, were appellants required to make their submission in the first instance to the Price Commission? Second, did the Company comply with the Commission's procedural regulations? Resolving the initial question adversely to appellants, we pretermit consideration of the latter, and accordingly affirm the judgment of the district court
