Good Day FFF members, thank you for your continued support!
The time has come for us to make some decisions about our possible legal actions and next steps.
Our lawyer, Umar Sheikh of Sheikh Law, has reviewed everyone’s evidence submission, assessed our position, and based on the current legal landscape has advised us on 5 possible courses of action. Below you will find an overview of each item, the legal advice we have received and options for you to vote on.
The options presented are deemed to be the most viable path(s) forward for FFF at this juncture in time . It is possible that in the future other options may present and be possible for our membership.
Please also note that while we have endeavoured to incorporate all of the FFF membership, there may be members who will not fall into any of the proposed options. This does not mean that there is no possible action for you – it just means that right now we have to pursue the options that are most likely to produce a positive result in the current legal landscape.
As a paying Liberty member, you are being asked to review the following content and make a decision on each matter, voting for actions that you feel are in the best interest of our FedsForFreedom group, regardless of your personal case. Please cast your vote on all five sections below, regardless if the situation applies to you or not.
At this point we are unable to accurately forecast the costs for any/all of the actions. That means we cannot articulate the scope of additional funds/fundraising that will be required to pursue any/all of the actions.
Definition of costs: Costs are legal expenses that accumulate during a lawsuit. Costs include hourly fees for lawyer’s work and disbursements.
What is a Cost Award? When a court action reaches its end, the judge will generally make a statement about costs, their amount, and which party has to pay them. Basically, a costs award is given to the party that won the lawsuit to help them recoup some of the money that they spent bringing their action.
In Class Actions costs are not awarded (meaning if FFF loses we would not be required to pay the opposing sides legal fees).
In Direct Actions, costs are commonly awarded. Meaning if FFF loses, it is likely that we would have to pay the opposing sides legal fees.
- Each member can vote once.
- Cast your vote on each of the 5 sections
- Voting must be complete by June 23, 2023
Results will be tabulated and announced to members 24 hours after voting closes. Should you have any questions about the 5 possible courses of action please do not hesitate to reach out to the FFF executive team at firstname.lastname@example.org before you vote.
