I found an email from the attorney I had emailed last week, telling me he would not be taking my case against the City of Tumwater, because he was not a big law firm and he felt this was a case that would take too long and cost a lot of money to pursue. So I did a search for larger law firms and began calling them on the phone for faster results. I spoke to several and was turned down. I finally spoke to one attorney who said most of the attorneys at his firm were on vacation at this time, but in a couple of weeks they would be back and he would write this up and present it at their meeting. He couldn't guarantee anything, but if they thought there was a chance of them getting a settlement out of it as well as a win for me with the lewd act laws I want to have changed so they could recoup their expenses they might take it. He'll call and let me know.
Another attorney who was very old and experienced said he didn't think it would happen, but gave me a lot of valuable information. At one point while speaking with him he said it wasn't like this was a God-given right under the Constitution, and I said, "But it is. It's the very first God-given right, God created us all nude and continues to do so today, so that was obviously His intention for the human race and it IS His God-given right for us." He still didn't think it would work, but he wished me well with it. I told him I would keep fighting this until the day I died.
Here is something that same attorney told me to look up:
Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.
42 U.S.C. § 1983 (emphasis added).
Section 1983 was enacted on April 20, 1871 as part of the Civil Rights Act of 1871, and is also known as the "Ku Klux Klan Act" because one of its primary purposes was to provide a civil remedy against the abuses that were being committed in the southern states, especially by the Ku Klux Klan. While the existing law protected all citizens in theory, its protection in practice was unavailable to some because those persons charged with the enforcement of the laws were unable or unwilling to do so. The Act was intended to provide a private remedy for such violations of federal law, and has subsequently been interpreted to create a species of tort liability.
In reading this, it's saying that anyone of authority, in my case the Tumwater City Council, who acts under the color of law while exercising their authority and violates the rights of any US citizen, are therefore liable to that injured person. So in passing laws that prevent me from being ME/nude publicly, which they do not have the right to do, I have the right to sue them and reap financially as well have these laws rescinded. I just need to find a lawyer with balls enough to take it on.
One other item of interest from America’s not too distant past that may have an impact upon our gaining independence from these overly restrictive laws that prevent us from being publicly nude is Roe v Wade. That’s right. The 1973 landmark case Roe v. Wade, wherein the Supreme Court applied the core constitutional principle of privacy and liberty to a woman’s ability to terminate a pregnancy may well be the same principle of liberty needed for us as Naturist Americans to push through to Congress the fact that just as women were given the right to decide what to do with their own bodies, up to and including having an abortion, if they so desire, so also we, in establishing our core being as the first and primary God-given right to all mankind, since it is clear that every person who has ever been born upon this planet, regardless of race, religion, or nation of origin, has been born completely nude, thus establishing this God-given right, have the right to our own bodies, including being able to live our lives completely nude, if that is our desire, for whatever reason, whether from a sincerely and deeply held religious conviction, as some of us, such as I, may have, or simply from an inner feeling we hold within that has nothing to do with religion. It is our body and the government, neither city, county, state, nor even federal, have any say over how we should dress ourselves or not dress ourselves. How we appear in public is not a crime, otherwise anyone of any distinctive difference, be it tattoos, deformities, or the color of their skin, may be subjectively discriminated against by any particular local township that seeks to overthrow the Civil Rights Act and regress to pre-1964 prejudicial bigotry.
If ALL of us do the same as I am doing and search for civil rights lawyers in our own respective areas at the same time, then we have multiple suits ongoing consecutively. These will ALL need to proceed to the Supreme Court in order to win and that means the Supreme Court will see all these cases being brought and will realize by the sheer force of numbers of suits that this is something REAL, people! This has to be a concerted effort on our part. We ALL have to do this, not just ME! Who else here has the balls to call up lawyers and tell them what I have, that you are a Naturist American seeking to change the laws so you can finally find peace in yourself by being able to go outside and simply be able to work in your yard, check your mail, walk along the streets of your neighborhood, go shopping, do all the everyday things everyone else does, but do them nude, because this is the normal and original intent of human beings and this is what has been within your heart, your soul, your BEING since the moment of your BIRTH! You have to sell this to an attorney, make them feel and hear it in your voice that THIS is who you ARE! You are not some weekend nudist looking to get nekkid at a club with others, but you are a person who HATES wearing clothes, because they make your skin crawl, they make you feel as though you are violating the core principle of your BEING just by covering your skin in order to go outside. Find an attorney to take your case and push it to the Supreme Court! We can DO THIS, but we have to have SOLIDARITY across the board! Without numbers we cannot succeed. With numbers we cannot be stopped!
We ARE our nude bodies and we MUST be FREE to live in our NATURAL STATE of BEING!
