The Sandy Hook “Pozner v. Fetzer” Lawsuit: The Basic Documents

Jim Fetzer

The great public interest in this case leads me to make some of the most important documents, from the Complaint to the Oral Hearing to the Order of the Court affirming the Plaintiff’s Summary Judgment Motion and denying mine, even though I had explained that, by Connecticut law, not even parents are allowed to possess uncertified death certificates (as was the case with the copy the Plaintiff made available to Kelley Watt in 2014 and published in Ch. 11 of NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015, 2nd ed., 2016). .

According to the Complaint, there are “no material differences” between the copy of the death certificate published in the book (above left) and the copy of the death certificate attached to the Complaint (above right). Notice, however, that the death certificate attached to the Complaint has a hand-written file number (top right), town certification (on left-hand side) and state certification (bottom portion), while the copy published in the book has none of those, which most would agree have to qualify as “material differences”.

Moreover, during the course of discovery, Dave Gahary obtained a third death certificate from the town (above left) and I secured a fourth from the state (above right). We secured reports from two forensic document examiners, Larry Wickstrom from Minnesota, and A.P. “Ash” Robertson from California, both of whom concluded that all four of these death certificates were fabrications. Wickstrom’s Affidavit, Exam Report and Expert CV and Robertson’s Affidavit and CV were all in evidence prior to the Oral Hearing.
During the Oral Hearing, I protested again and again about the absurdity of the case, where I was being sued over a death certificate–the one attached to the Complaint–that I had never before seen, commented upon or published about. And with the reports of two forensic document examiners, it was incomprehensible to me how he could rule in favor of the Plaintiff. But the Court simply set their conclusions to the side as “someone else’s opinions” and ruled in spite of disputed facts that had to be heard by a jury.


The only issue that remained for a jury to decide was the amount of damages I owed to the Plaintiff for defaming him. One witness–apart from Mr. Pozner–by the name of Dr. Lubit testified that Mr. Pozner would have recovered from the PTSD induced by the murder of his son had it not been for the sentences in a book describing the death certificate as “a fabrication”. That, he said, induced permanent PTSD, his son’s death only transient. But he acknowledged that he had no face-to-face contact with the Plaintiff.
Support for the James Fetzer, Ph.D., Legal Defense Fund at most welcome.
Indeed, it was stunning to me that Dr. Lubit was basing his diagnosis upon what he had been told by Mr. Pozner and his attorneys, most of which was false. He was told I had harassed him, when I had not; that I had phone calls with him, which I had not; that I had claimed that he had fabricated the death certificate, when I only claimed that the death certificate was a fabrication. The jury of 12 (11 women and 1 man, all under the age of 30) found the Plaintiff’s case compelling and awarded him $450,000 in damages.

  6. Interviewed yesterday for this story, which turns out to be as misleading and littered with false claims as virtually every other that has yet to appear. Here’s a link to the story. Check it out and tell me if I have missed the boat: The question is whether they will even allow me to comment and, at least, in part, set the record straight!

    Start the discussion…

    Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by Yale Daily News.
    This might do as a first draft, but it would not pass in a course on journalism. We did not author the book; we edited it. There are 13 contributors, including 6 current or retired Ph.D. professors. We established that the school had been closed by 2008, that there were no students there, and that it was a FEMA drill presented as mass murder to promote gun control. We even found the manual for the FEMA exercise, which we published as Appendix A.

    The book went on sale with on 22 October 2015 and had sold nearly 500 copies when it was banned on 19 November. At the time, amazon had 20 books about Sandy Hook, but only one challenging the official account, NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK. It bothers me that a Yale student cannot get the title or the number of pages (446) or other basic facts about this case right, even though we spoke on the phone and I laid it all out.

    More importantly, I only said the death certificate is a fabrication, not that Leonard Pozner had fabricated it. And I was right: Not only does it have no file number (in the upper right-hand corner) but no town or state certification, where, by CT law, not even parents are allowed to possess uncertified death certificates. And two forensic document examiners agreed that, not only is that death certificate a fake, but three others that surfaced in the case were also fakes.

    That means the authenticity of the death certificate, the most basic fact at issue in this case, was disputed; but the Court simply set their reports aside as “somebody else’s opinions” and rendered a summary judgment, when that process only apples when there are no disputed facts. I was not allowed to present the massive proof that this was a FEMA exercise, from which it follows that any death certificate for an alleged victim would have to be a fabrication.

    When banned the book, I released it to the public for free as a PDF, which you can download and read for yourself using its title in a browser. I have made the basic documents in this case, including the document examiners’ reports, available on my blog at These are public records that enable you to verify every claim I have made here about this case for yourself. Write if you think we have anything wrong and why.

    I find it appalling is that, even in the case of a Yale undergraduate, who had access to me and to all this information, she cannot get the the book’s title, page numbers or what it presents right and even claims we said the Plaintiff fabricated the death certificate. This is a classic SLAPP suit to silence critics of official narratives, which was filed to punish me for speaking out and to show others what can happen to them when they exercise the First Amendment right to inform the public. This story is not responsible journalism.

    1. When one reads the almost now obscene term ‘conspiracy theory or theorist’ used no less than 7 times in an article this short, poorly written and factually deficient, it’s obviously a hit piece.
      I have a hard copy of ‘Nobody Died at Sandy Hook’ and it clearly states several times that Dr. Fetzer was a co-editor of the book and in no place have I been able to find any accusation that the fictional character Leonard Pozner was accused of any fabrication. Could it be his (if indeed, there is an authentic ‘his’) own GUILT has forced him and the court to create that lie as a totally false foundation for this farce of a defamation suit?
      In the real world with a fair judge and a legitimate court, this ridiculous case would have been dismissed from day one.
      But we no longer live in a real and just world….we exist as victims of some duality that is a the antithesis of truth and Common Law.

    2. Mr Fetzer, as Im sure you’re well aware, Yale University has a vast history of being a breeding ground for CIA spooks and is home to Skull & Bones.
      Its also about 30 min away from Newtown.
      The Yale Daily News is not going to portray you favorably.

    3. Still, this underscores the need to put up a strong defense against the forces wishing to steal your 1st Amendment rights from you, Jim. I’m sure you are trying to determine how Pozner et al. will shove aside your legitimate and probing questioning of them. It’s hard to guess what their next move will be. I’d try to find one of America’s best lawyers in this appeal game and try to get some insights for the “next time”. Maybe Remington Number 2 will be trotted out in the appeal. That is, some other bogus explanation to shut you down. I’m sure it’s very easy to keep you guessing. Of course, the American bar association hasn’t exactly shined in your favor, will they suddenly change their tack?

  7. Hey Jim… Maybe if you put the special sunglasses on at the trial you would see the Judge and Plaintiff are really those alien scull faced beings just like “THEY LIVE”. From the proceedings and outcome of the trial, maybe it’s true! School shootings is a new religion to some people. You would think people would be so over joyed that no kids actually died. But that’s blasphemy to their new religious worship. I mentioned the near violent reaction I got on a ski lift one day when I said the whole thing was staged. I have seldom seem anyone so angry as this man. “I bet you don’t have any kids you conspiracy fuck!” I thought the guy’s head would explode. He just skied away at the top. But I was fully prepared to fight, my first one in decades!

    My guess is the Judge is just like my exploding head skier … anyone not buying it needs to be punished like Holocaust deniers in Europe going to jail. The average person that believes the school shootings du jour does less than zero research into it, as my pal Dan admitted. I really hit him hard with the zero murders for Newtown in 2012 by the FBI’s crime statistics. No one can call that a theory. I planted that small seed of doubt, a little rain might make it grow.

  8. OK, so we have a jury of sub-30 year old women, 11 to be exact,with one man,also under 30 years of age.Coming from the utterly legal bastion of Connecticut, I’m wondering about one thing that seems glaringly missing in Jim’s “trial”. Here in legal nirvana, prior to a trial there’s a procedure called voir dire, which means, more or less, choice of jurors. It’s done by legal representatives of the plaintiff and defendant. It’s meant to weed out potential jurors that both sides might have a concern about during trial. My question, was that done in Jim’s trial? The jury is clearly out of balance in several aspects. Jurors, all under 30 years old, mostly women with only one man.How is this mal-balance not seen and not objected to from the get-go?

    1. Yes, two prospective jurors were removed for cause (after declaring they could not fairly judge anyone who had questioned the reality of Sandy Hook) and each side had three preemptory challenges. They exercised their three and we ours. This was the jury that emerged from voir dire. Statistically, it was very odd. Your guess is as good as mine.

      1. Yes, Jim, truth stranger than fiction. However, I’m even somewhat amazed Remington did not object to this unbalanced jury. Under 30, 11/12 women……I’m struggling with this one, Jim. There were no other more mature folks in the jury pool?

  9. “One witness–apart from Mr. Pozner–by the name of Dr. Lubit testified that Mr. Pozner would have recovered from the PTSD induced by the murder of his son had it not been for the sentences in a book describing the death certificate as “a fabrication”.

    Wish someone could locate and identify a “Dr. Lubit” from under the rock where this disgusting entity most likely dwells.

    A fake “doctor” who made a judgement about a patient he never examined. What an “expert witness” and fine “doctor” !

    Think how many “expert witnesses” who will say anything for hire have been used in our courts of law to mete out injustice to the vulnerable citizens.

  10. As CIA Director Casey said in 1981…“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

    Operation Mockingbird is currently very busy doing just that. The CIA has received billions of secret dollars from Congress to deceive the American taxpayers who know almost nothing about Mockingbird.

    We the People are unknowingly paying for the rope which will hang every citizen unless this is stopped.

  11. The End of Accountable Government Is Close at Hand

    Paul Craig Roberts

    For about 70 years the CIA has been undermining a free press. It began with Operation Mockingbird, a Cold War operation against communism. The CIA recruited journalists into a propaganda network. The CIA paid journalists to write fake stories or to publish stories written by the CIA in order to control explanations that served the agency’s agendas. Student and cultural organizations and intellectual magazines, such as Encounter, were suborned into the CIA’s propaganda network. Thanks to the German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, we know that every European journalist of any significance is a CIA asset. In 1977 Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame wrote in Rolling Stone that the CIA “has secretly bankrolled numerous foreign press services, periodicals and newspapers—both English and foreign language—which provided excellent cover for CIA operatives.” Like most other people, Western journalists were all too willing to sell out their integrity for money. The few who were not were blackmailed into submission.

    The few honest journalists who remain have been forced out of the “mainstream” or presstitute media onto Internet websites. Wikileaks is by far the best news organization of our time. To bring this organization to heel Washington, using its Swedish, British, and Ecuadoran vassals, has persecuted Wikileaks’ founder, Julian Assange, for years. The CIA’s media vassals, including the New York Times and The Guardian, both of which published the material leaked to Wikileaks that is being used to destroy Assange, have joined wholeheartedly in the persecution of the World’s Best and Most Honest Journalist.

    Currently Assange is being tortured, apparently to death, while bring held in solitary confinement in a maximum security British prison awaiting his extradition to the US on false charges. As the CIA cannot be certain it has suborned all the federal judges, Washington is just as happy if Assange dies in a British prison as there is no valid case against him under current US law. Probably the absence of a valid case doesn’t matter as the rule of law in the US is very difficult to find.

    The lack of any valid case against Assange is the reason the distinguished documentary film maker John Pilger describes Assange’s persecution as a Stalinist Show Trial.

    What is astonishing about the CIA’s destruction of Julian Assange is the silence of American law schools and bar associations, the silence of universities, the absence of student and labor union protests, the absence of any protection of Assange’s rights from courts as the last news organization willing and capable of holding governments accountable for their crimes is destroyed openly in full view of the law schools, intellectuals, bar associations, courts, and print and TV media.

    The CIA’s control over explanations is as complete as the control Big Brother has in George Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984. And this doesn’t bother the citizens of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Europe. Only a few individuals speak out for Assange, and they, too, are demonized in turn.

    The Age of Tyranny has now descended upon the Western World.

    Julian Assange’s Extradition Case is a Show Trial
