I hope you get someone who replies and has the necessary legal expertise.
But I was the one involved in that lawsuit, brought on 1 May 1990 to the
Santa Barbara Superior Court, denied, then appealed to the Santa Barbara Cty
California State Appeals Court and again denied on 29 January by the 3 
judges sitting on this Appeals Court. Currently Alcor and myself have not
yet made a firm decision either way about whether to appeal to a yet
higher court. My name is Thomas Donaldson. Another appellant, Carlos 
Mondragon, is President of Alcor and entered the suit on behalf of other
Alcor members who might be involved in suspending me.

The issue is not that of having my head suspended. The issue was of 
whether or not I could do so PRIOR to my legal death.

I hope this information will be sufficient for you to recover the law
