Mr Rubenstein (may I call you Steven? ),

You assert that the Academy's (and presumably also SOA's) expulsion of you is "ludicrously false."

The notice to members indicates that the expulsion was for a violation of Precept 1, and they specifically cite annotation 1-4. The violation apparently stems from inappropriate emails they say you sent that were of a harassing/threatening nature, and that you continued to send even after a court order to stop.

So which part(s) of the Academy's account is/are false?
  • Did you not send the emails?
  • Do you deny the nature of the emails?
  • Was the court order fictitious?
  • Do you dispute that sending a series of inappropriate emails and/or disobeying a direct court order could represent a violation of Precept 1 of the Code of Professional Conduct?

Thank you,
Marcie

Trying to pass my last exam for FSA, I continued suggesting that we let bygones be bygone. However, apparently feeling the need to show that their lies can overcome any truth, they responded to my attempt to register for the 2015 Annual Meeting and Public Policy forum with their ludicrously false expulsion notice of me.

While having better sense than to desist from it, my offer remained to them that, until getting my complaint filed, we drop this. But, paying your dues to Salky to engineer his way through any tribunal or law enforcement, they would not hear. Having at last what I thought might withstand it, I filed -- in response to which, they gave your dues to Salky’s new partner, Catherine Duval (look up Lois Lerner’s or Hillary Clinton’s emails), who lied in every possible way, primarily to confuse the judge what the case is about until, apparently befuddled, he dismissed it.

But statutes of limitations are not up, and, as they know, the stakes raise with each round. There is a path to righteousness, one must believe, and, I know, no matter what they do, they cannot take my name from me.

(This posting, of course, can remain only by the good graces of D.W. Simpson, to whom I would gladly answer any question asked.)

2:18 AM in TN? Unusual time of day to be posting something substantial like this.

Also, you are showing that you are a member of the SOA and AAA here on the AO.

His lawsuit being against "The Academy Cowards" won't help that perception much.

Seems like the AAA/SOA have a slam dunk on this one.

Violating a court order to send even more harrasing messages most likely sealed your fate.

If Steven believes the expulsion was "ludicrously false" he may also believe he still truly is a member of those two orgs, George.
