So What Happened??!

I was a victim of the FBI Poly in 2001.  At that time this the federal lawsuit seemed to be the best chance at changing things.  In fact, I had contacted Mr. Zaid and considered joining.  Since then there have been no updates.  Did our side lose and nobody wants to talk about it or what?

The federal lawsuits are still in discovery.

A year and several months have now passed since this the last posting in this thread with no update.  Can anyone who is a party to the suit, other than the plaintiff's attorney,  provide an updated status report on this discovery process?  What have the defendant agencies provided so far in terms of discovery materials?  Has anyone joined the suit as plaintiffs since it was first filed?  Have any of the original dropped out of the civil action?  This is an extremely important issue as plaintiffs have prevailed on several of the original motions filed by the defendants.

The federal polygraph litigation remains active, although half of the plaintiffs have settled their claims by essentially dropping out. The court recently denied our attempt to depose former FBI Director Louis Freeh, although without prejudice.

Each side will be submitting a Motion for Summary Judgment by August 1, 2005. I envision several months of briefing, possibly oral arguments, and then ultimately a decision, hopefully sometime next year.

I apologize if you have contacted me and not received a response. It has been very difficult to respond to all the inquiries and, quite frankly, there is little I can do at this stage. While I am more than willing to take your money (!), it would be a waste for any more victims to join the litigation given the stage we are at. Should we succeed at this next level, then by all means everyone should join! But if we don't, then you would have wasted your time and money for nothing. Essentially whatever decision is obtained in the case that now exists will control because the facts in our case are just as good as any I have heard.

That being said, I could use everyone's help. If you have been denied employment by a federal agency due to the polygraph, whether in part or whole, AND you believe you have lost out subsequent employment at the federal, state or local level due to the initial polygraph results, please contact me ASAP at ZaidMS@aol.com.

Even if you are not in the litigation, you can help. Thanks.
