Judge Rosen
Bob Dylan Retains Same Law Firm as George W. Bush in Fifteen Year Plagiarism Law Suit. Also suppresses Plaintiff’s
First Amendment Rights acquiring a protective order designating all video taped depositions that are incriminating to
Dylan confidential

Bob Dylan & his law firm acquired a confidentiality order in a fifteen year plagiarism law suit designating all discovery
materials including fifty hours of incriminating video taped depositions as confidential suppressing Plaintiff James
Damiano’s first amendment rights to warn the public of Judicial favoritism and corruption.

Camden NJ June 2, 2009 -Few artists can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter
James Damiano. Twenty-two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob
Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds.

As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that CBS used songs and lyrics for international recording artist, Bob
Dylan. Bob Dylan’s name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as best rock song of the
year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity.

Since auditioning for the legendary CBS Record producer John Hammond, Sr., who influenced the careers of music
industry icons Billy Holiday, Bob Dylan, Pete Seger, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, James has engaged in a
multimillion dollar copyright infringement law suit with Bob Dylan.

As per court papers it is judicially uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan’s law firms Manatt, Phelps & Phillips ,
Parcher Hayes & Snyder, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Heck Brown and Sherry and Sony House Counsel that Bob Dylan
and people in Bob Dylan’s entourage have solicited James Damiano’s songs and music for over ten years and eleven
months.

Interestingly enough Judge Jerome B. Simandle decided “This court will accept as true Plaintiff’s allegations that Sony
represented to him that he would be credited and compensated for his work if Dylan used it. Judge Simandle also stated
in his decision “Plaintiff has demonstrated a genuine issue of material fact as to whether defendants had access to his
work.

All statements, facts and documents in this declaration have been submitted to Bob Dylan, his counsel and to the court.
Bob Dylan's attorney's have also downloaded the contents of this website and produced it to the Court, specifically to The
Honorable Judge Jerome B. Simandle.

All statements, facts, and documents in this declaration have been unanswered and uncontested by Bob Dylan and his
counsel.

After fourteen years of litigation, ten thousand pages written, fifty hours of video taped deposition
which are incriminating to Bob Dylan and after at least seven and a half million dollars have been spent on this
litigation, Bob Dylan still to this date has not filed a counter or slander suit against James Damiano

Said mentioned materials and documents have been submitted to the United States Marshalls who have commented in
James Damiano's favor stating that the case was a "Shut tight case that should have been won by Damiano" The United
States Marshall Service is represented by the United States Attorney's office who's is headed by the Attorney General of
the United States.

It is uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan's law firm Manatt, Phelps & Phillips formerly (Parcher Hayes &
Snyder) and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher that Bob Dylan and people in Bob Dylan's entourage have solicited James
Damiano's songs and music for over ten years.

The Bob Dylan James Damiano Story is the most covered up scandal in the history of Rock and roll
At the 1995 Grammy awards "Dignity" was nominated for a Grammy as the best Rock song of the year.
According to Bob Dylan's attorney Orin Snyder James Damiano's website has been viewed over 1,400,000 times. Mr.
Snyder has downloaded the website with the stat counter viewable and produced it to Judge Simandle three times, yet
never filed criminal chages of any kind..

It has been published in the media that the integrity of the United States Federal Judicial System has diminished to the
level that it is unable to adjudicate a simple copyright infringement lawsuit. This motion not only supports that allegation
it conclusively documents, to the record the validity of said statement.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST Bob Dylan received an Honorary Doctorate from Princeton University in 1971, The same
University Judge Simandle received a B.S.E degree at.

In a span of seven years from 1990 to 1997 Bob Dylan released only one newly written original song titled "Dignity". Mr.
Dylan's seven year hiatus from writing original material lacks merit of performance and creativity. One must wonder
why Mr. Dylan would embrace the hubris that time can endorse

This lawsuit James Damiano vs Bob Dylan for copyright infringement was filed in Federal Court in November of 1995.
This website was has been published on the world wide internet for a period of more than thirteen years since January of
1996.

The most interesting and shocking fact about this website is that Bob Dylan has tried to suppress the truth and the facts of
this case by applying to the court for a confidentiality order designating all discovery materials as confidential.

Suppression of the truth as far as we can remember is a tactic often used in Communism.
James Damiano subpoenaed Bob Dylan for his November 11th 1999 hearing and Bob Dylan never appeared in court.

that it made over $90,000,000.00 in the United States alone.

In 1994 James Damiano advertised in the attorney wanted section of the New York times for an attorney to file a
copyright infringement lawsuit against Bob Dylan. The advertisement read "Attorney wanted to file a copyright
infringement lawsuit against the worlds most respected songwriter"

Steven M. Kramer answered the advertisement along with many other attorneys.
A CD Rom of this motion and a four-hour videotape of segments of various depositions taken during discovery have been
produced to the United States Marshall's Service. After reviewing plaintiff's materials The United States Marshall's
Service commented in Plaintiff James Damiano's favor, stating that Damiano's case was a "shut tight case" that he (James
Damiano) should have won.

This lawsuit was never dismissed with prejudice.

RE: Damiano v. Bob Dylan & Sony Music Entertainment Inc.
Civil No. 95-4795 (JBS)
Dear Litigants:
This will reply to Mr. Snyder's letter of December 18, 2002, which requests an extension of time to respond to Mr.
Damiano's motions from December 20, 2002 until January 20, 2003.

Under the circumstances in Mr. Snyder's letter, his request is granted. In my preliminary review of these motions, I have
noted that they do not conform to the requirements of the Federal motions, and that the 40-page limit for motions has also
been exceeded.

Notwithstanding the procedural defects in the motions, and in light of Mr. Damiano's pro se status, I will not dismiss the
motions and require rebriefing. as I would do if an attorney filed these papers.

I will, however limit the length of defendants' opposition to the 40-page limit of L. Civ. R. 7.2, and request that special
attention be given to the motion to vacate the protective order. That motion may not be timely to the extent that it seeks
relief from an ongoing injunctive order regarding the use of confidential discovery materials. Although the defendants
must address all of the pending motions, I would appreciate if special attention is given by defense counsel and by Mr.
Damiano to the current status of the confidentiality order.

The issue arises whether, with the passage of time, the protected materials will continue to have the heightened degree of
confidentiality which they were found to enjoy in earlier years. If not, is the future continuation of the injunction against
use of the confidential materials warranted? In other words, Mr. Damiano has asked that the court re-examine the
continued validity of the protective order against his use of confidential discovery materials, and the court is willing to do
so after all parties have had a chance to be heard.

In summary, all motions remain pending, and the defendants' opposition will be due January 20, 2003. Mr. Damiano's
reply papers, if any are due 14 days after receiving defendants' opposition papers. Mr. Damiano's reply is also limited by
L. Civ. R. 7.2(b) to 15 pages. After all submissions have been received by the court, I will determine whether or not to
grant Mr. Damiano's recusal motion and, if recusal is denied, whether to convene oral argument or decide the matter
upon the basis of the papers received under Rule 78. Fed. R. Civ. P.
