Magurder Cult Apology ??

To the USCF members in the State of Nevada. Many of you have received a maliciously deceptive mailing by Allen P. Magruder about the 12th of October. What Magruder deliberately hides from you is on page 17 of that mailing. The key phrase on line 11 "without prejudice." This meant that the judge requested the case refiled, which your State affiliate is doing, breaking the case down into less complicated parts. We have retained additional attornies and have done so, as well as other appropriate actions required as well. We have been informed that the so-called injunctions claimed by Magruder are not in effect, and therefor on advice of our attornies proceed, business as usual. You will notice there where no injunctions granted with regards to the attempt of USCF to revoke or suspend my TD certification, as the June 26, 1996 hearing was held under the Nevada Administrative Act NRS 233 and the result was the USCF did NOT prove its case, and I am a TD in good standing. If they choose to libel and assert otherwise, it is to their detriment. As such the USCF is trying a new tactic. Revoking various Nevada affiliates. Perhaps they figure that in trying this illegal action they can prevent numerous Nevada TD's such as myself, Greg Niemi, Tom Klem and others from making use of their valid TD licenses. It won't work. We have unlimited funds and will pursue these issues forever if necessary. Meanwhile our new attornies ask your help by signing the enclosed petitions. Since Nevada Chess incorporated in October 1996 and USCF illegally started allowing them access to our affiliate Id # T6009686, they have not been in compliance with State law, having not held a single election in over 2 years that was in compliance with the Association by laws originally filed that said ALL Nevada USCF members where automatically awarded the right to vote, and without ANY poll tax (Magruder dues). Your signing of the petition will allow a takeover of Nevada Chess Inc. and a CPA conducting of valid fair elections. It will then be interesting to see if USCF instigates setting up another bogus State affiliate then. If so, we'll pursue it, too. In the meantime, we encourage your support and turnout at legitimate Nevada State Chess Association State affiliate events. Further, Please sign up to be a USCF TD and spread the # of chess events. Please sign and return the petition ASAP.
