Ex-councilmember Frye sniffs conflict, sues city

My name is Farhad Jampour Bastani. I am former employee of the City of San Diego who has been involved in multiple cases against the City as a pro se plaintiff. In general, Office of the City Attorney is a corrupt, dishonest and abusive office. During litigations, they frequently commit various shocking unlawful conducts such as **Perjury**, violation of state and federal **penal codes**, **obstruction of justice**, **abuse of judicial process**, **harassment**, **concealment of material facts**, **causing willful delays**, etc... Once in 2015, I even decided to sue Jan Goldsmith and declared this matter to the court... Office of the City Attorney even do not care about public interest... I was a whistle blower against the conduct of the city against "**Public Records Act**" and the City negligence against **Public Safety** which has resulted in severe injury to public, Office of the City attorney did whatever unlawful conducts they could to prevent my case being surfaced and addressed by the court... The deputy City Attorneys in the Office of the City Attorney are very well trained for "Fraudulent Concealment" and even committing unlawful **obstruction of justice**.... Even if a plaintiff is a pro se plaintiff against the City, there has been always risk of fraudulent fabrication of allegations by The Office of the City Attorney to prevent and threat pro se plaintiffs not to pursue their complaints.The subject matter of this article is not surprising to me at all... Office of the City Attorney is an abusive and mafia type office and should be reformed. They are against the public interest of the people of San Diego... I very well know that individuals such as Jan Goldsmith acted like he was above the law.

County worker’s racial slur didn’t infer he was a “lover”

Dorian...Can you publish an Article about the Termination of my Employment too? My name is Farhad J. Bastani. I am former employee/engineer of the City of San Diego. I was a "Whistle Blower" in the City against the conducts of the City against "Public Record Act" and "Public Safety". Please see the attached picture...in 2015 and during a litigation, I discovered an email communication between two managers/decision makers against my employment, James Nagelvoort (Director) and David Zoumaras(Deputy Director)... among many other strong/evidences , I discovered in 2015 and 2016 that the Actual decision against my employment was NOT even termination and was "5 days suspension without pay"(although this one was also wrongful)....Since 2014 until present, I have been involved in multiple litigations against the City and although I presented high count of "Strong Evidences" in support of my claim, both Office of the City Attorney and San Diego Superior Court fraudulently did not let me to pursue the litigations and repeatedly and unlawfully OBSTRUCT my claim and litigation.... I was Pro Se Plaintiff in multiple cases and outrageously subjected to abuse and unlawful conducts during litigations...see the attached discovered email...Even such a simple email was sufficient to prove that the termination of my employment was wrongful. There are some statements in the attached email such as "We would like to suspend him for 5 days without pay" and "Yes...a suspension is OK..."..... No public entity and no judge/court in the SOIL OF THE U.S. can switch from "Mild decision of 5 days suspension without pay" to "Outrageous decision of Termination", although even 5 days suspension without pay was not correct too. It is ridiculous that a discriminatory court do not let me to pursue litigations since 2014 until present and cooperate with Office of The City Attorney to Obstruct my Claim....San Diego Superior Court is a very corrupted court the same as Office of the City Attorney....It would be great if you could publish an article about the termination of my employment... http://www.sandiegoreader.com/users/photos/2017...

County worker’s racial slur didn’t infer he was a “lover”

Dorian... I am a U.S. Citizen with Iranian (Middle Eastern) National Origin...I have been a target of Racial/Ethnicity slurs for Numerous (Tens of Times) in different work places since the time of the beginning my new life in the U.S. I even resigned from my first job in the U.S. because of this matter although I had been awarded with "Employee of the Month" and "Employee of the Season". Some of the racial slurs I received in different work places were that "**Harsh**" that even subjected me to "**Shock**" and "**Temporary Numbness in whole body **" for about 10-20 seconds. At the instance of receiving Harsh Racial Slur, one may feel that a "Flow of Clod Blood" circulate rapidly in the body simultaneous with feel of Temporary Numbness in whole body. Unfortunately, there is no actual legal protection against such conducts, particularly in a "Public" and/or "Local Government Organization". I did some research to analyze the psychology of such individuals who make Harsh Racial Slurs in the work place. some of them make racial slur because of their belief about social matters (1 st group) BUT some of them make racial slurs because of their "Personality Deficiencies (2nd group)" in making "Harsh Racial Slurs" is part of their "**Psychological Defense Mechanism**". In some subjects of **psychology**, people are being categorized based on psychological defense mechanism such as "REPRESSION", "SUPPRESSION", "REGRESSION", "DENIAL", "**DISPLACEMENT**", "RATIONALIZATION", "COMPENSATION", "INTELLECTUALIZATION", "ACTING OUT", "INTROJECTION", "IDENTIFICATION", "PROJECTION", "SUBLIMATION", "UNDOING", "REACTION FORMATION", "IDEALIZATION", "ANTICIPATION", "ALTRUISM", "AVOIDANCE", "HUMOUR", "ISOLATION", "FANTACY", "AFFLIATION", "DEVALUATION", "TRIVIALIZING", "DEFLECTION", "AIM INHIBITION", "SPLITTING", "WITHDRAWAL", "SOMATIZATION", "CONVERSION", "COMPARTMENTALIZATION", "DISSOCIATION", "OMNIPOTENCE", "SYMBOLIZATION", "AUTISTIC FANTACY", "RESISTANCE", "HELP-REJECTING COMPLAINING".... After reading your article and based on my experience, the supervisor who made Racial Slur against the African-American Lady, is suffering from "**Deep Psychological Complexities**" and used the " Specific Psychological Defense Mechanism" known as "**Displacement (see the above list)**" for his own "Mental Complexities Discharge". I believe that the supervisor has "**Deep Old Unresolved Psychological Complexity**" and has tried to transfer his deep personal unresolved mental suffering to another in form of "**Racial Slur**".

City to pay for public-records case fumble

Cassander...my name is Farhad J. Bastani. I am former employee of the City...I was a Whistle blower in the City against many unlawful conducts of the City...let me tell you about one of the problems that you do not see which is "Millions of Dollars of Waste of Public Fund in CIP projects". 1- The total annual budget of CIP projects in the City is about $400 Million. 2- There are many CIP projects in the City and the responsible Division in the City to control/inspect the "Quantity/Quality of the material used during construction ", "Invoices" , "Change Orders" and other payments to the contractors/developers and subcontractors is "The City of San Diego Field Engineering Division" which is located at 9485 Aero Dr., San Diego, CA 92123. 3- As an example, suppose that a approved budget of the typical "Slurry Sealing CIP Project" for 300 street sections is about $1.5 M. There are many CIP projects that the approved budget is unnecessary "HIGH" and "Uncontrolled" . As a result, during construction, contractors willfully "Over Charge" the projects in such situation and submit many Change Orders and abuse other over charging techniques. In such situation, many supervisors and inspector with confidence on the so called "Sufficient Budget" of the projects, do not properly inspect the quantities, change orders and invoices. 4- This is "Negligence against Public Interest and Public Fund". 5- I was a resident engineer in the City. During my employment, I had many arguments about this matter with supervisors and contractors for "Over Charging the CIP Projects from Public Fund". Unfortunate, in all instances supervisors interfered and their response to me was "DO NOT WORRY! THE PROJECT HAS SUFFICIENT BUDGET" 6- I had witnessed that there were between $50k-$100k overcharging as an example in a $1.2 M CIP projects. Just imagine who much overcharging exist in a total of $400,000,000 annual CIP Project?

City to pay for public-records case fumble

My name is Farhad Bastani. I am former employee of the City. In the past an article published in San Diego Reader about my issues with the City and conducts of the City against "Public Records Act" and "Public Safety". https://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2016/oct/26... City willfully withheld information and causes "Calculated Delays" during litigations. I am in possession of evidences that the City even "Destroy" and/or "Fabricate Fraudulent documents" and Judges easily disregard such serious conducts against Public Records Act and opponent parties.Office of the City Attorney is very well experienced in causing "Willful/Calculated Delays" and "Concealment of Material Facts". I had repeatedly opposed this conduct of the City in two(2) different cases but I was a Pro Se Plaintiff and the judges did not take me as a serious party in litigations. the City of the San Diego is a very corrupted organization. the relations among its managers is like "MAFIA"! I know Deputy City Attorney Catherine Richardson. In my latest lawsuit against the City she and another Deputy City Attorney, Keith Phillips, committed "Abuse of Judicial Process" to cover up and conceal the committed serious unlawful conducts. Judges should cease "Blind Supporting" the City of San Diego. It is a very corrupted organization. I was a Whistle blower against the conducts of the City against "Public Safety" and "Public Record Act" and they fraudulently set me up for terminating my employment. There are many irresponsible managers in the City who have caused too many injuries and damages to the people of San Diego.

City still hopes to prevent mayor from taking stand in deadly crosswalk lawsuit

Dorian… based on the SSD Formula the “Required Design Stopping Sight Distance” at speed limit of 40 Mph. is : G=0 for Horizontal Circular Curve t= 2.5 Sec. a= 11.2 ft/sec.^2 then: SSD= 1.47* 40*2.5 + (40^2)/ (30* (11.2/32.2))= 300.33 ft. Which is exactly the same as the SSD listed in AASHTO charts and other guidelines. Even at speed limit of 30 Mph., the SSD is: SSD= 1.47* 30*2.5 + ( 30^2)/ (30* (11.2/32.2))= 196.5 ft. In fact, if you see the Google Satellite Image of the Circular transition of Catalina Blvd. to Canon St., the Crosswalk is DANGEROUSLY located FAR WITHIN the required design Stopping Sight Distance, while the start point of SSD (ie. Observing the Crosswalk by drivers) even at best conditions, is located on the Transition Curve of Catalina Blvd. to Canon St. Even if the Crosswalk was not being located FAR WITHIN the Stopping Sight Distance and complied with the Safety Factors in the above formula and Standards, THE DRIVER OF THE SUV WOULD NOT COLLIDE WITH AAVANGE FAMILY, EVEN IF the BUSHES and TREE obstructed his vision on that Spot. In fact, regardless of any other matters in Point Loma Case , the location of the Crosswalk did not have any Traffic Engineering Design Safety Factors and the City had to “Remove the Crosswalk” and/or at Minimum Implement The Maximum Possible Visual Warning Signs” started from Catalina Blvd. City does not have any defense in Point Loma Case. Please note that, I left these comments on this Articles, without any coordination with the Attorney of Aavange Family .
