About Our Legal Cause
THIS AFFECTS EVERY VETERAN, EVERY CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES as well as all visitors to the United States. We are helping veterans whose names and/or images have been misappropriated.
OUR CURRENT PROJECT: Help General Yeager keep control of his name and help you keep control of yours. Others should not be allowed to benefit from using your name without your consent. Gen. Yeager has filed Petitions with the California and United States Supreme Courts to help every citizen of the United States and anyone investing in America.
If you want to give Gen. Yeager permission to add your name to his Petitions and/or court documents supporting General Chuck Yeager and this cause, please leave your name street address, phone number, email, military status, veteran status, and occupation here.
Friends of Chuck Yeager, press here enlist your support for our causes
Causes we support
- Can a lawyer use a client's name on his website without the client's permission? The California Bar Association says no, but in a case we supported, an appellate court did not seem to mind and the California Supreme Court did not accept our petition to consider it. The Supreme Court is able to consider a tiny fraction of the cases submitted, so this question remains to be decided in other cases we support. More details
- Does California's single-publication rule govern the accrual of a Lanham Act claim arising from a merchant's refusal to remove an unauthorized endorsement from their website? That is, when you tell someone to quit using your name on their website to help sell their product, does a statute of limitations apply when they continue to publish the offending content? The US Supreme Court is able to hear less than 1% of petitiions, so did not accept our petition to consider this question. More details
