FACTS

  A. Hoover Plan [Also, click here and here.]

23. On information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that sometime in the Spring of 1968, then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, acting individually and in conspiracy with other persons, caused to be instituted a plan (hereinafter Hoover Plan) for counter-intelligence, espionage, and electronic surveillance against the so-called "New Left" in the United States.

24. This operation was designed to disrupt, sabotage, and render ineffective indigenous domestic opposition to the conduct of the U.S. war in Southeast Asia and to governmental policy in general.

25. The means of accomplishing this goal included, but were not limited to, illegal searches and seizures, the use of agents provocateur who infiltrated organizations and advocated and executed illegal and violent tactics, and illegal surveillance interrogations, wiretaps, espionage, and sabotage.

26. In a memorandum to FBI field offices throughout the country, Hoover instructed each office to assign an "experienced and imaginative" agent to the counter-intelligence program. A prime target of this operation was the activity of SDS, of which Plaintiff was, at that time, a member and leader.

27. The Hoover Plan remained in effect until the Spring of 1971, when it was ordered terminated by Hoover, although FBI field offices were permitted to request approval from FBI headquarters for further counter-intelligence operations in particular instances or cases.

28. Said Plan was instituted in bad faith, to harass, annoy, and intimidate Plaintiff and others in the valid exercise of First Amendment freedoms, and to destroy political opposition to governmental policy. Said plan was in no way a legitimate exercise of executive powers.

29. The existence of the Hoover Plan first became known to Plaintiff on December 7, 1973, when he read in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that documents describing said Plan had been released by the FBI the day before.

30. The full scope of the Hoover Plan is known only to the U.S. government. Defendant Clarence Kelley, present Director of the FBI, is the custodian of the records and documents which constitute, explain, and refer to this Plan, and which would divulge the full scope thereof.

31. The initiation and execution of this Plan, inter alia, resulted in specific violations of Plaintiff's civil and statutory rights as shall be set forth below.

32. Defendant Tolson, as the executor of the estate of J. Edgar Hoover, is civilly liable to Plaintiff for the acts of Hoover in initiating this Plan, in that said Plan and/or its execution violated Plaintiff's rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth amendments, and under federal statute.

33. Defendants John Doe 1 and other unknown agents of the FBI are civilly liable to Plaintiff for their actions in carrying out the details of the Hoover Plan, in violation of Plaintiff's rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth Amendments, and under federal statute.

B. Huston Plan

34. On information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that in June, 1970, Defendant Tom Charles Huston and others, presently unknown to Plaintiff, who worked in the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, conspired to cause the formulation and implementation of the Huston Plan for domestic espionage.

35. The Huston Plan was designed to deal with the alleged "need" to provide greater communication and coordination between government agencies with responsibility for domestic intelligence gathering and to compensate for the alleged defects and unsuitability of the programs of the FBI in this regard.

36. The means selected by the Huston Plan brought this country to the verge of a police state: prior restrictions on the use of burglaries were lifted, restraints on the interception of mail were lessened, and the practice of warrantless electronic surveillance of private conversations was authorized.

37. On information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that the Huston Plan was directed against domestic "radical" or "New Left" organizations and persons, including Plaintiff, who expressed opposition to government policies in the war in Southeast Asia and at home. The initiation and execution of said Plan resulted, inter alia, in violations of Plaintiff's civil and statutory rights.

38. Said Plan was initiated in bad faith to harass, annoy, and intimidate Plaintiff and others in the lawful exercise of First Amendment rights, and to destroy political opposition to government policy. Said Plan was in no way a legitimate exercise of executive powers and the originators of the Plan themselves recognized the unlawfulness of the espionage measures adopted.

39. Plaintiff is informed and believes that President Nixon's approval of the Plan on July 23, 1970, was not rescinded shortly thereafter, but, to the contrary, the unlawful objectives and illegal measures contained in the Plan were in fact implemented and executed pursuant to the Plan's scheme until at least the summer of 1973, when the existence of the Plan first became known to Plaintiff and the American people.

40. Defendants Huston, John Doe 3, and other unknown employees of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government are civilly liable to Plaintiff for their actions in creating and executing the Huston Plan in that said Plan and/or its execution violated Plaintiff's rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth Amendments, and under federal statute.

C. Mitchell Plan

41. On information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that between the years 1969 and 1973, inclusive, various officials in the U.S. Department of Justice, including but not limited to Defendants Mitchell, Goodwin, Mardian, and John Doe 2, both by themselves and in conspiracy with each other and other government agents and agencies who were carrying out the Hoover Plan and/or the Huston Plan, engaged in a series of activities, plans, or operations having as their purpose the disruption, sabotage, and destruction of domestic opposition to U.S. governmental policy in the war in Southeast Asia and at home. (Said Plan is hereinafter referred to as the Mitchell Plan.)

42. The means selected in accomplishing said goal were some or all of those utilized pursuant to the Hoover and Huston Plans, and, in addition, included the bringing of unwarranted and baseless federal Prosecutions against the leaders of said domestic political opposition, including Plaintiff.

43. Pursuant to said Mitchell Plan, Plaintiff and seven other persons were indicted on April 16, 1970, for conspiracy to cause damage to federal property. (U.S. v. Marshall et al, W.D. Wash.) Said indictment was announced nationally by Defendant Mitchell and J. Edgar Hoover. All charges in said indictment were dismissed three years later on the motion of the U.S. Attorney.

44. During the course of said prosecution, Defendants Mitchell, Goodwin, Harris, Mardian, and others caused Plaintiff's rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Ninth Amendments, and under federal statutes to be violated, and are civilly liable to Plaintiff therefore.

45. The Mitchell Plan itself and as executed with respect to the prosecution of Plaintiff was instituted in bad faith for the purpose of harassing, annoying, and intimidating Plaintiff and others in the valid exercise of their First Amendment rights, and to destroy political opposition to governmental policy. Said Plan was in no way a legitimate exercise of executive power.

D. Specific Allegations of Government Misconduct

  • SDS National Office

46. On information and belief, for a period of time presently unknown to Plaintiff, but including at least part of 1969 and 1970, Defendants John Doe 1 and other unknown agents of the FBI, and/or John Doe 3 and other unknown agents of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government intercepted, overheard, disclosed, used, and/or procured others to intercept, overhear, disclose, or use, without application for or issuance of a judicial warrant or order, and without compliance with 18 U.S.C. 2518, conversations of Plaintiff conducted over the telephones of the National Office of SDS, located at 1608 West Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois.

47. The existence of said electronic surveillance on the telephones at the SDS National Office first became known to Plaintiff in June, 1973, when this information was made public record by the government in hearings concerning a Federal Grand Jury investigation in San Francisco. (See Appendix A.)

48. On information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that Defendants Illinois Bell and its unknown employees John Doe 45 assisted in the illegal wiretapping and/or electronic surveillance of said SDS National Office and participated in the interception of Plaintiff's telephone conversations.

  • SDS in Seattle

49. From June, 1968, until approximately January, 1970, Plaintiff's residence at 3822 Woodlawn North, Seattle, in the Western District of Washington, was a center for SDS activities in Seattle.

51. The existence of said wiretap and/or electronic surveillance at Plaintiff's Seattle residence was first suspected by Plaintiff in June, 1973, when he learned of the SDS National Office wiretaps. His suspicions were reinforced in December, 1973, when he learned of the aforesaid Hoover Plan.

  • Other SDS Activities

53. The exact locations, dates, and extent of such other illegal surveillance is peculiarly within the knowledge of the U.S. government and Defendants Saxbe and Kelley, and others in whose custody the files relating to said surveillance are currently entrusted. However, Plaintiff, upon information and belief, alleges that numerous locations, including but not limited to the following, were subject to illegal electronic surveillance and/or wiretapping of Plaintiff's conversations as previously alleged, during the stated time periods.

a. (Prosecution) Defendants Mitchell, Mardian, Harris, and Goodwin, and others unknown to Plaintiff, initiated the criminal prosecution of Plaintiff and the Seattle 8 pursuant to the above described Mitchell Plan in bad faith, without any justification or belief that Plaintiff had violated any criminal statute of the United States.

b. (Burglary) Defendants Mitchell, Mardian, Harris, and Goodwin, and others unknown to Plaintiff, caused the residences of at least one Seattle 8 defendant and at least one of their attorneys to be invaded and entered surreptitiously and illegally burglarized.

c. (Informant) Defendants Mitchell, Mardian, Harris, Goodwin, and others caused one David Sannes, acting in conjunction with and on the behalf of said Defendants and the U.S. Department of Justice, to infiltrate the Seattle 8 Defense Collective, of which Plaintiff was a member, for the purpose of spying upon said defense effort, gathering information about the defense case, and advocating wild, far-out, and often violent schemes offered ostensibly to aid the defense but in truth designed to discredit the Seattle 8 Defendants and their attorneys.

d. (Wiretap) Defendants Mitchell, Mardian, Harris, Goodwin, and others caused federal agents to intercept, overhear, disclose, and/or use, without application for or issuance of a judicial warrant or order, and without compliance with 18 U.S.C. 2518, conversations of Plaintiff and other Seattle 8 defendants and their attorneys and defense staff conducted over the telephones used in connection with the preparation of Plaintiff's defense, including but not limited to the telephones at the locations below, during the times stated:

57. Upon information and belief, Plaintiff alleges that Defendant Pacific Northwest Bell and its unknown employees, Defendants John Doe 4, assisted in the illegal wiretapping and/or electronic surveillance of each office and residence aforementioned, located within the State of Washington, and participated in the interception of Plaintiff's telephone conversations.

58. In each and every conversation Plaintiff had on telephones referred to in paragraphs 46 through 56 above, Plaintiff had an expectation of privacy with respect to said conversations.

59. The wiretaps, electronic surveillance, and burglaries described above were initiated pursuant to one or more of the Plans described above; and the execution of said Plans and the various named and unnamed Defendants who knew of or were responsible for the formulation and execution of said Plans caused the deprivation of Plaintiff's rights under the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Ninth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and under 18 U.S.C. 2511; and said Defendants are civilly liable to Plaintiff therefore.

60. The Defendants, procurement of interception, disclosure, and use, and their interception, disclosure, and use of Plaintiff's wire and oral communications during the period in question were unreasonable and illegal, and were not made in good faith reliance on any judicial, legislative, or other valid authorization; and in particular did not comply with the requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2518. Said acts were initiated and conducted by the responsible Defendants in bad faith for the purpose of harassing, annoying, and intimidating Plaintiff and others in the valid exercise of their constitutional rights.

61. Defendants Mitchell, Kleindienst, Mardian, Goodwin, Harris, and Huston, and others presently unknown to Plaintiff, knew that some or all of the unlawful events described in paragraphs 46 through 56 above were about to occur.

62. Said Defendants had the power to prevent or aid in the prevention of the occurrence of the said events, but they neglected or refused to do so; and they further concealed the occurrence of the said events and thereby facilitated their recurrence.
