Looks like Mel and Mrs. Mel will be compell---ed to visit Bradbury's shrink

On Monday May 23 Judge Rondolino will hear a motion filed by Ray Bradbury to compel Melvin and Betty Sembler to be examined by a psychologist of his choosing. Tom McGowan, Bradbury's attorney, has also filed a memorandum in support of Bradbury's motion. According to the memo, the Semblers had 30 days from Feb. 23rd to respond to Bradbury's motion but failed to do so, and thus the motion should be granted on that grounds alone. And then McGowan gives other finer points of law supporting the motion. Looks to us like Mel and Betty will have to talk to a shrink once they get back in June from their important business of state. motion

Motions filed

On May 3 Judge Rondolino will hear a motion on whether to place restrictions on plaintiffs' second deposition of Ray Bradbury. Ambassador Melvin Sembler and his wife Betty have yet to be deposed. On April 24 Judge Rondolino will hear a motion to modify the injunction against Ray Bradbury which prohibits his contact with the Semblers to include prohibiting contact with the Semblers' attorney, his staff and family. Ray Bradbury is a former Straight employee who was responsible for Straight's closing in 1993. Two years ago he placed for sale on eBay an instrument once belonging to Ambassador Sembler. Bradbury says he did it to bring attention to the survivors of Straight. Mel and Betty say he did it because he wants to extort money from them; because of his "sadistic desire to inflict pain on people"; and because of his "desire to avoid responsibility for his own actions." Please send donations to help Mr. Bradbury in his legal case with Mel and Betty Sembler. Contributions are not tax deductible and can be sent to Thomas H. McGowan, P.A., 150 Second Avenue North, Suite 870, St. Petersburg, FL 33701 eMail: info@mcgowanlaw.org

Path cleared for the Semblers' depositions

Apparently Mr. Bradbury's last deposition must have been grueling. On May 3 Judge Rondolino ruled that part 2 of Ray Bradbury's deposition could proceed but there would be some limitations placed on the methods of questioning by the plaintiffs. Once Mr. Bradbury finishes his deposition the path will be cleared for him to depose the Semblers. Citizens opposing the proposed Fowler shopping center in Winter Garden, Florida have made a protest sign alluding to Ambassador Sembler's "device" and also their web page addresses the Semblers and child abuse at their Straight program. If you do an Internet Google search on " sembler "penis pump" " you will get articles from around the world. Almost all of them will also mention Straight, Inc. The Washington Post, ABC Action News, La Gaceta and even the St. Petersburg Times have all reported on the "device" and all have mentioned Straight too. Mr. Bradbury has been in the news exposing the Semblers and Straight for almost two decades now. He has joined with other Straight protesters to protest at Sembler's home. And yet in their interrogatories the Sembler's claim he protests because he is a sadist. They won't mention Straight. Mr. Bradbury wasn't looking in the ambassador's trash can hoping to find his "device" so he could embarrass him with it. He was looking for documents to further document the Straight holocaust and found the "device" completely unexpectedly. Any reasonable jury is going to want to know this: "Mr. Bradbury, you live in Tampa and Mr. Sembler lives in St. Petersburg. Why in the world were you looking through his, of all people, trash in the first place?" Why was he looking in your trash can to begin with Mr. Sembler? Has he been looking for your "device" all these years or has been trying to have you put in prison for operating a criminal enterprise that harmed him and thousands of other people. Ever since Lenny Englander made his big blunder of admitting the "device" belonged to his client, Mr. Englander has sought to keep Straight out of the suit--and out of Mr. Sembler's soon to come deposition. We think time has about run out for Mr. Sembler.

PumpGate becomes bad business for Sembler Company: the snowball is growing

Sembler is trying to build a mall in Winter Garden, Florida but in an all too familiar scenerio the citizens don't want it. As Mel Sembler's reputation for outlandish deeds grows so does the exposure of his deeds. The sign at left was used April 14 to protest Sembler Company. It refers to Ambassador Sembler's strange lawsuit against Ray Bradbury to reclaim his discarded penile pump which Bradbury found in Sembler's trash can.

The snowball is growing. These protesters have found our web pages and are getting read-in on the background of this man who has convinced their mayor he should let him buy their neighborhood. Perhaps it is time Sembler Company change its name to ACME Construction Company. story
