CCCP Reports: Twenty Million Dollar Lawsuit Filed Against The Department Of Homeland Security

Former DHS Officer files a multimillion dollar lawsuit against DHS, ICE and CBP.

For Immediate Release

SANTA MONICA, Calif./EWORLDWIRE/April 24, 2007 --- In a multimillion dollar lawsuit filed against the Department of Homeland Security, former CBP Officer Julia Davis and her husband, Hollywood Producer/Director BJ Davis, uncover how the Patriot Act is being used to discourage acts of true patriots. A complaint filed in the Central Federal District Court of California (Case EDCV07-0481SGL (OPx)) names the United States of America, Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), ICE Agents Jeffrey Deal and Herbert Kaufer as defendants and seeks general damages of twenty million dollars in addition to punitive and exemplary damages, special damages, petition for writ of mandate and attorneys fees. Allegations include civil rights violations, malicious prosecutions, false imprisonment, warrantless surveillance, warrantless searches, privacy violations and withholding of exculpatory evidence.

Julia Davis is a former Customs and Border Protection Officer who made a whistleblowing disclosure to the FBIJTTF in an attempt to safeguard the nation's borders. In retaliation for the report that exposed serious lapses in processing of applicants for admission from special interest countries, the Department of Homeland Security engaged in unprecedented retaliation against Julia Davis and her family. San Diego Director of Field Operations Adele Fasano wrote that Julia Davis "should be held accountable for what she did," referring to Julia's report to the FBI. San Ysidro Port Director William Ward sent a high priority Significant Incident Report to the office of former CBP Commissioner Robert Bonner, alerting DHS officials of an extremely embarrassing disclosure. ICE Agents Jeffrey Deal and Herbert Kaufer led the charge against Davis and later admitted under oath that the Davis case was declared "top priority" and was to be given "immediate attention."

Julia and BJ Davis have been falsely charged with felony crimes and twice imprisoned; the Davis residence has been raided with a Blackhawk helicopter, stormed by twenty-seven ICE Agents armed with assault weapons and ransacked for an hour without a warrant. Prior to the raid, Julia and BJ Davis have been subjected to aerial surveillance with the Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Unit, followed by as many as eight ICE agents at each given time; their medical and insurance records have been inappropriately disclosed by the Screen Actors Guild and voluminous materials have been seized in a warrantless search of BJ Davis' office. Agents Kaufer and Deal falsely accused Julia Davis of being a "Domestic Terrorist" and a convicted murderer, boasted of abusing Patriot Act provisions in "keeping close tabs" on the family, while disclosing highly privileged TECS records and details of FBI investigations to third party civilians and organized crime associates.

All criminal charges in prosecutions against Julia and BJ Davis have been dismissed. California State court declared Julia and BJ Davis factually innocent, ordered their arrest records sealed and destroyed and ordered the government to return all proceeds of both warrantless searches. DHS, Kaufer and Deal refused to comply with this court order. Although the DHS Office of Professional Responsibility acknowledged in writing that misconduct by Kaufer and Deal had risen well above the administrative level, their actions have not been formally investigated. The DHS Office of Special Investigations canceled their appointments to interview Julia and BJ Davis, where the evidence of criminal misconduct was to have been formally presented.

Julia Davis won a discrimination lawsuit against the DHS, with a final court order issued in 2005 that found the Agency engaged in illegal conduct and that the DHS betrayal of Julia Davis caused her to involuntarily resign from the Agency. Daniel Sutherland, the DHS Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties issued a written refusal to comply with the court order.

The current lawsuit, filed by the law firm of Wasserman, Comden & Casselman, points out that while the DHS refused to honor an award of $225,000 dollars and failed to comply with valid court orders, it expended enormous taxpayer resources to unlawfully pursue, harass, maliciously prosecute and falsely imprison Julia and BJ Davis.
