Over the centuries, many romantic situations have been enhanced when one of the parties to the affair was able to augment his meager words with those from one more articulate. During the event of a wedding, there are numerous opportunities for the use of custom-written speeches and toasts. In many instances this can turn an ordinary event into an extraordinary one!
This is the fallout from a case in which Citibank refused to cash a check drawn on its own bank for a black man who was a holder in due course. Citibank then allowed my Caucasian girlfriend to open a bank account if she wanted to cash the check for him, but then denied me, as a black man, that same opportunity pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1981. Then their lawyers tried to threaten us with video that they now refuse to provide because they are lying. They called the police and threatened to arrest me and said I was dangerous, all kinds of hater material going on here. http://Citibankisracist.blogspot.com They accuse me of being a dangerous black man but I give criminal justice presentations: http://samshaulson.blogspot.com/2009/11/kingcast-asks-sam-shaulson-esq-exactly.html They also claim they couldn't determine the identity of my girlfriend to see whether they opened an account for her but her name "JRT" is on the back of their own Exhibit C (the canceled check that was eventually cashed) before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

KingCast draws First Blood against Sam Shaulson and Citibank with Motion to Compel in racial discrimination case.
After weeks of Sam Shaulson, Morgan Lewis and Citibank playing games with video that they tried to "threaten" my lawyer with, I wrote a Motion to Compel and they said they would forward the video to MCAD "immediately." They don't want me to post any parts of it on YouTube because it will show they were lying about my behavior at the bank. I will not show any customers or any Citibank personnel excepting Carlo Caramanna, and if necessary I will hire a lip reader if we can see him talking, that will firmly establish they lied when they said the Decision Maker was black. That's ridiculous because the purported Decision Maker was only a teller, I know her personally. She would have opened an account for me and that's why there's no written statement from her.
Sam Shaulson, Morgan Lewis and Citibank will now face a Motion for Sanctions for Spoliation of Evidence based on clearly applicable Law. From the Motion I hand delivered to MCAD and FEDEX'd to Sam Shaulson, Morgan Lewis and Citibank.
From the Motion:
Despite clear and repeated warnings, Citibank has allowed for the spoliation of crucial video that would show my behavior at the bank to be exemplary and would show that they knew exactly who JRT is: In those videos one can see her get the paperwork and sit in the offices in order to open an account!
See MacLellan v. Shaw's Supermarket, Inc., 24 Mass. L. Rep. 317 (2008)
Plaintiffs filed a motion for sanctions against the supermarket for spoliation of evidence, alleging a failure to preserve a scissor lift, destruction of a surveillance video, improper documentation of the incident, and inadequate maintenance records……..
The same was true of the video tape. The court noted that the video which might have shown the sequence of events that resulted in the alleged injury was material and relevant evidence.
