Darren Chaker is on probation for a white collar crime and is challenging the conviction for his attorney’s misconduct. “In my opinion Chaker’s attorney did not exercise a reasonable standard of care in filing a Second Bankruptcy Case without Chaker’s consent and signature. Indeed, in my opinion such conduct is fraudulent.” (See Expert Report, Page 7, http://darrenchaker.com/bankruptcy-fraud-appeal/ )

Shortly after being placed on probation, Darren Chaker went to jail for violating probation. It was alleged Darren Chaker said, “Ms. Leesa Fazal, an investigator with the Nevada Attorney General’s Office, was “forced out” of her previous post with the Las Vegas Police Department.”  See Cato Institute article. Lessa Fazal made multiple reports to federal, state, and local police – none of them arrested Darren Chaker. For additional details, see the article Human Rights Watch, Prison Legal News, wrote about this case.

The Cato Institute, ACLU of San Diego, Electronic Frontier Foundation, First Amendment Coalition, and Brechner First Amendment Project at University of Florida filed a joint amicus brief in his support wanting the court to reverse a decision from a San Diego federal judge who found Darren Chaker violated probation by posting a blog about Nevada Attorney General Investigator Leesa Fazal, of Las Vegas. A compelling opening brief was filed by Federal Defenders of San Diego Inc. The amicus brief was authored by the Washington D.C. office of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, who is consistently ranked as an international top 20 law firm.

The Ninth Circuit reversed, see opinion. The U.S. Court of Appeal, Case. No. 15-50138/ No. 15-50193, found, “Chaker’s blog post, which claimed that former police investigator Leesa Fazal “was forced out of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department,” does not qualify as harassment.” The court continued to state in relevant part, “The government also failed to prove that Chaker’s blog post satisfied the elements of defamation, including falsity and actual malice. See N.Y. Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 279–80 (1964).”
