Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company Maliciously Targets Autism Vaccine Injury Victims And Is THE WORST INSURANCE COMPANY IN AMERICA

I recently saw this news story about how State Farm insurance company dropped actor Rob Schneider after he publicly raised concerns about vaccine safety issues. See here:

Insurance companies across the United States are out of control and running amok trampling over the human and civil rights of disabled American people.

Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company is by far the worst offender.

Nationwide takes State Farm’s malicious targeting of an adult Autism vaccine injury victim to new levels. Lets look at the malice and false advertising of Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company, and the sick and morally bankruptcy malice of its lawyers.


As most everyone who follows my Internet presence knows, I am an adult with an Autism vaccine injury that was inflicted on me at between 12 and 15 months of age.

So, first of all, it is an EXTRORDINARY INJUSTICE and IRRATIONAL THINKING to blame me for being at fault for causing my autism vaccine injury disabilities.

I was a BABY when they were inflicted on me - *GET THAT,* Nationwide and Trevor Rhodes and Lauren Haynes of the Banker Lopez Gassler, P.A. law firm in Tampa, Florida (an Autism abusive law firm).

People with Autism vaccine injuries, like everyone else, can and do get personal injuries from other causes.

During 2004 I was injured while loading a vehicle that was struck from behind when I was almost dragged under it and car parts struck me from the crash. I made an insurance claim on Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company to pay for my medical care from the accident. My husband was also injured in the accident while sitting in the vehicle that was struck from behind at about 60-70 MPH by an uninsured motorist, Nathaniel May, and my husband's father who was also in the vehicle subsequently deteriorated as a result of the injuries he suffered and died.

Our lawyer, David Ristoff, told my husband we had a good and valid insurance claim against Nationwide for the full policy limits (which were $100,000 for uninsured motorist for my husband and $100,000 uninsured motorist for me). 

Nationwide acted in extreme bad faith and refused to pay the claim for a very long time, making “low ball” offers of $25,000 and less, delaying and dragging out the claims process and subsequent lawsuit filed against Nationwide to pay the 2004 insurance benefits for years.

While the 2004 lawsuit was pending against Nationwide, my husband and I were struck from behind on January 5, 2008 while stopped at a railroad crossing in Clearwater, Florida, at about 45-50 MPH by an underinsured motorist, Antonio D’Angelo. Mr. D’Angelo almost pushed our vehicle into the vehicle stopped in front of us, and both vehicles into the passing train. My passenger seat restraint broke on impact, throwing me into the interior of the vehicle, inflicting a significant brain injury on me.

Following the January 2008 car accident brain injuries, I was having extreme difficulty being able to communicate with and assist my lawyer, David Ristoff, so his “solution” was to abandon me as his significantly brain damaged client and dump me into the Florida state court system with no Title II Americans With Disabilities Act reasonable accommodations or any other lawyer to help me.

Nationwide acted in “bad faith” pushing me around in the 2004 lawsuit while knowing of the extent of my Autism and brain injury disabilities, and chose the tactics with respect to the January 2008 claim of not asking for any Independent Medical Examination (“IME”) but instead accepted my medical doctors findings and reports.

Nationwide, whose advertising slogan “Nationwide is on Your Side,” has clearly demonstrated by its acts and conduct that its advertising slogan is FALSE ADVERTISING, and showed its TRUE COLORS as the vicious and nasty “bad faith” insurance company that it is.

Nationwide’s lawyers in the 2004 lawsuit, led by Scott Albee and Gerald Biondi (who subsequently got off the case), began targeting, abusing, and attacking me as a person with Autism and now a significant brain injury with abusive lawyer tactics --  they intentionally refused to provide Americans With Disabilities Act reasonable accommodations for my Autism and brain injury disabilities so they could exploit the failure to accommodate in the 2004 lawsuit and they began raising “frivolous” and “vexatious” and “harassing” “sanctions” arguments against my husband and I in the Court hearing the 2004 lawsuit to try to intimidate and coerce us “to drop the lawsuit.”

Meanwhile, I accumulated over $100,000 in medical bill for the medical care that began following the January 2008 car accident and significant brain injuries inflicted on me along with my efforts to separate out the underlying Autism vaccine injury condition from the new car accident brain injuries, all of which Nationwide began reviewing during 2008-2009.

During February/March 2009, State Farm insurance company settled the January 2008 car accident claim in good faith on behalf of its insured, Antonio D’Angelo. But Mr. D’Angelo was an underinsured motorist, and the settlement was not enough to pay for the full damages of my January 2008 car accident injuries. Nationwide approved of the settlement with State Farm.

But, incensed by the revelation I am an Autism vaccine injury victim, Nationwide’s vicious attacks on me by its lawyers in the 2004 lawsuit pending in the Florida state court escalated. I filed a counter-claim lawsuit against Nationwide in the 2004 lawsuit (which was consolidated), for their Americans With Disabilities Act refusal to accommodate violations and for the intimidation and coercion of abusing me as a person with Autism and brain injuries they knew about by attacking me with “frivolous” and “harassing” and “vexatious” and “sanctions” accusations.

Such malicious abuse of a severely disabled person with Autism vaccine injury and added significant brain injuries clearly ran afoul of Florida’s strong policy against vulnerable adult disabled abuse. But Nationwide didn't care about that. 

Nationwide defaulted and failed to file any Answer to my counter-claim for the disability abuse in the 2004 lawsuit, consolidated, and on April 28, 2010, Nationwide settled the 2004 lawsuit with my husband and I, promising in exchange for my husband and I reducing our $200,000 damages claim for the 2004 lawsuit to: (1.) pay us $20,000 each (for a total of $40,000); (2.) agree to pay the $100,000 2008 underinsured motorist benefits due for the January 2008 car accident because I already had over $100,000 in medical bills accumulated from the 2008 accident; (3.) to provide me the Americans With Disabilities Act reasonable accommodations I require at all times in the future; (4.) to never force me to have to file another lawsuit against Nationwide to get my money; and (5.) to never attack me at any time in the future anywhere and in any other lawsuit with “frivolous,” “harassing,” “vexatious” accusations or seek or get “sanctions” (because Nationwide recognized that this was, essentially, beating up on a severely disabled person who is unable to defend themselves).

The 2010 settlement agreement release further provided that in consideration for a settlement payment of $20,000 to my husband, David F. Petrano, and $20,000 to me, that NATIONWIDE MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY exchanged mutual, general releases and made various covenants, including the following:

“fully release, remise, and forever discharges one another and its officers, employees, for, from and against any and all claims, lien, demands, causes of action, controversies, offsets, obligations, losses, damages, liabilities of every kind and character, whatsoever, including, without limitation, any act or action, omission, misrepresentation, or implicating in any way the medical and Social Security records inaccuracies and disputes, or any other basis of liability, fault, or wrongdoing, founded either in tort, contract, equity, disciplinary, quasi-criminal or criminal, and the duties arising thereunder, for which the Parties have had in the past or now have, whether known or unknown, whether asserted or unasserted, by reason of any matter or cause, or thing set forth in, relating to, or arising out of, or in any way connected with or to all claims growing out of the Nationwide Automobile Insurance Policy Number 786466 and resulting from the automobile accident which occurred October 18, 2004, … Pinellas County, Florida, with claims pending in the Circuit Court of the Sixth Judicial Circuit in and for Pinellas County, Florida, Case Nos.: 06-8593-CI and 08-015758-CI.”  
Nationwide, through its lawyers, stipulated to the 2010 settlement agreement, and final adjudication upon it in the Petranos v. May and Nationwide, Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida, (consolidated) Case No. 06-008593-CI and 08-15758-CI lawsuit.


Following entering in the 2010 settlement agreement with me, Nationwide began a vicious and malicious systematic targeting of me as a person with an Autism vaccine injury who Nationwide realized had a substantial brain injury claim for the January 2008 accident that Nationwide did not want to pay for – WHY ? Because Nationwide is a bad insurance company that doesn’t pay for the claims its insured pay premiums to have insured with Nationwide.

And also because my Autism vaccine injury incensed Nationwide.

The renewed attacks on me by Nationwide began when Nationwide in “bad faith” refused to pay my medical doctors the $100,000 underinsured motorist benefits for the January 2008 car accident they had promised they were going to pay under the 2010 settlement agreement. They did this to get my medical doctors to cut off my medical care for significant brain injuries inflicted on me in the January 2008 car accident – JUST LIKE THE NFL, WITHOUT REGARD TO THE NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE SECONDARY CASCADING EFFECTS OF THE BRAIN INJURIES WOULD INFLICT ON ME LEFT UNTREATED.

Nationwide was FULLY AWARE that such intentional acts on its part of cutting off and leaving untreated a significant brain injury such as that documented by my medical doctors could – as seen in NFL players with brain injuries, left untreated, cause Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (“CTE”).

Nationwide DIDN’T CARE, because Nationwide is the WORST INSURANCE COMPANY IN AMERICA, and Nationwide’s Advertising Slogan “Nationwide is on Your side” is KNOWINGLY FALSE ADVERTISING.

Nationwide told me that to be able to get my medical care for the significant brain injuries inflicted on me in the January 2008 car accident (that were NOT MY FAULT), I “would have to sue,” and they told me this through their lawyer, Carl B. Schwait, who sits as Chair of The Florida Bar’s Disciplinary Committee, while KNOWING that this breached the 2010 settlement agreement I entered into with Nationwide.

My husband and I waited until the last hour of the last day before the statute of limitations would have run to sue Nationwide. Nationwide told me I would have to sue them in Alachua County, Florida where Carl B. Schwait’s law firm is located to “forum shop,” even though the car accident happened in Clearwater, Florida in Pinellas County.

As soon as I sued Nationwide, Nationwide changed law firms from the law firm that was representing it when Nationwide entered into the 2010 settlement agreement with me. It is clear that Nationwide did so as a DECEPTIVE tactic to CHEAT ME out of the $100,000 money on the January 2008 car accident claim that Nationwide had promised it would pay me under the 2010 settlement agreement, if my husband and I would take $160,000 less on our 2004 claim.

Nationwide hired the Banker Lopez Gassler, P.A. law firm of Tampa, Florida, 501 E. Kennedy Blvd., Suite 1500, Tampa, Florida 33602, (813) 221-1500, and its lawyers, Trevor Rhodes, Florida Bar No. 0020573, and Lauren Haynes, Florida Bar No. 0085105.

Nationwide’s lawyers acted with others to remove the case to federal court in Gainesville, Florida (to make sure it manipulated the case to a Court that was not familiar with the prior lawsuits between Nationwide and myself that went against Nationwide), where it was assigned to United States Magistrate Gary R. Jones and Chief Judge M. Casey Rodgers.

Nationwide’s lawyers immediately KNOWINGLY MADE FALSE STATEMENT OF FACT to United States Magistrate Gary R. Jones and Chief Judge M. Casey Rodgers that I am “a licensed member of the Florida and California Bar” amid accusations of the same “frivolous,” “harassing,” “vexatious” tactics that Nationwide had agreed under the 2010 settlement agreement with me it WOULD NEVER RAISE AGAIN to get $43,316 in “sanctions” against me because (as Nationwide's TOTALLY FALSE STORY WENT) as “a licensed lawyer” I “knew better” than to “bring a frivolous lawsuit” to collect the money Nationwide had promised to pay me under the 2010 settlement agreement it entered into with me.

At the time Nationwide and it lawyers FALSELY TOLD UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES I WAS “A LICENSED LAWYER,” they KNEW just exactly the opposite was true: that I am an autism vaccine injury victim, whose medical doctor (Michael W. Hoffmann, M.D. of the University of South Florida) diagnosed “markedly limited verbal abilities,” whose other medical doctor (Loren Bartels, M.D./FACS) diagnosed: “she is unable to type and produce usable material. Written pathways to self-produced language are for her, not comprehensible,” and my significant brain injuries left untreated by Nationwide caused blindness.

At the time Nationwide and it lawyers FALSELY TOLD UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES I WAS “A LICENSED LAWYER,” they KNEW  their FALSE PORTRAYAL of me was of a person with autism in the face of the significant danger of death from wandering, drowning, or other’s physical attacks upon the Autistic person upon experiencing the Autistic behaviors -- and that their FALSELY PROCURED "sanctions" enhanced this autism danger.

Nationwide and its lawyers by DECEPTION and CHEATING and FALSE STATEMENTS THEY MADE TO UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES, not only obtained $40,316 “sanctions” against me that were barred by the 2010 settlement agreement entered into with me by Nationwide, but also did so against an autistic person to take the money away from her and her autism family needed to prevent autism wandering dangers.

Nationwide and its lawyers KNEW at the time they FALSELY TOLD UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES I (A PERSON WITH AUTISM) WAS “A LICENSED LAWYER” that there is a substantial body of publicly available knowledge that people diagnosed with Autism cannot be left unsupervised or thrown on the streets by “sanctioning” them and taking away their Autism care and safety money without danger to their lives:

See Samantha Driscole, Autism insights on Wandering, Facebook, January 31, 2011[1] (“92 percent of children and adults with autism wander and this can be both dangerous and deadly. This is largely due to the fact that individuals on the spectrum often have an impaired sense of danger. Many individuals on the spectrum maybe drawn to large bodies of water and will play in and may attempt to swim. They don’t take into account current, under toe or sudden drop off or if they can swim.

In 2001, a California research team attributed elevated death rates among people with autism in large part to drowning…. In addition to educating parents and caregivers, AWAARE is reaching out to first responders to increase their understanding and adjust their response mechanisms for autism elopement. "It is our hope that law enforcement and other first responders will devise strategies for dealing effectively with wandering-related incidents when they occur in their own communities…"); Dennis Debbaudt, Plan Your Response to an Autism Emergency[4] (“Children and adults all over the world wandered from care and into danger. Leading causes for concern are children and adults who run away or wander from parents and care providers.

Wandering can also lead to high risk field contacts with law enforcement or members of the general public.”); Autism Safety Tool Kit[5] (“A leading cause for concern are children and adults who run away or wander from parents and care providers.

In 2008, Danish researchers found that the mortality rate among the autism population is twice as high as the general population.

Of those 22 deaths, 20 were caused by accidental drowning and two were hit by vehicles. The danger of elopement comes in many forms; from running into traffic to going with a stranger, the hazards are around every corner.”); Anne Dachel, Fox San Antonio: Another wandering death…just a part of autism, FoxNewsSanAntonio, June 5. 2014[9] (“A community is mourning after an autistic boy was killed while walking on a busy highway.Southwest Independent School District confirms sixteen-year-old Jeffrey Perez died after being hit by several cars Monday morning. The special needs student at Scobee Middle School was spotted walking along the center stripe of Loop 410 near Somerset Road during rush hour traffic. Investigators say Perez left his home in the middle of the night and started to wander.“).

Nationwide and its lawyers KNEW at the time they FALSELY TOLD UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES THAT I (A PERSON WITH AUTISM) WAS “A LICENSED LAWYER” that ANYONE who made any reasonable investigation inquiry into autism wandering dangers and death could have put the search terms “adult with autism wandering death” into a Google search on the Internet and it would have returned approximately 363,000 results.

I have never been “a licensed lawyer” anywhere one day in my life.

I have now been left for 5 1/2 years without any medical care and treatment for the significant brain injuries inflicted on me in the January 2008 car accident.

In addition to FALSELY TELLING UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES THAT I (A PERSON WITH AUTISM) WAS “A LICENSED LAWYER,” Nationwide also told the United States Federal Judges that I “had no insurance policy” with Nationwide, “no claim” for the January 2008 car accident, and that it was “insurance fraud” – all of which were KNOWINGLY FALSE STATEMENTS OF FACT designed for purposes of DECEPTION and to CHEAT ME, and a breach of the 2010 settlement agreement Nationwide entered into with me.

When Nationwide was confronted with these lies, and AFTER IT GOT THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL JUDGES TO “SANCTION” ME $40,316 in breach of the 2010 settlement agreement I had with Nationwide, Nationwide’s lawyers, Trevor Rhodes and Lauren Haynes told the United States Federal Judges that the “sanctions” should stand because ‘even if I had a valid insurance policy and a valid claim that Nationwide refused to pay,’ because IT WAS NOT THE CONTENT OF WHAT I SAID BUT HOW I SAID IT THROUGH MY AUTISTIC SPEECH that “justified” "punishing" me with the “sanctions” and that the “sanctions” had to be entered against me “for deterrence.”

“Deterrence” of what, EXACLTY ?

I am severely Autistic. I have an Autism vaccine injury inflicted on me as A BABY, that WAS NOT MY FAULT.



All I asked for WAS TO GET MY MEDICAL CARE NATIONWIDE HAD ALREADY PROMISED TO PAY. That “justified” “sanctioning” me $40,316.

Nationwide, THE WORST INSURANCE COMPANY IN AMERICA, “sanctioned” me all the money I have and probably will ever have to care for my Autism vaccine injury and the significant brain injuries Nationwide left untreated TO “DETER” ME FROM SPEAKING AND WRITING AUTISTICALLY TO ASK FOR HELP TO GET MY MEDICAL CARE. 

And they did so in breach of the 2010 settlement agreement I entered into with them, and the final state court judgment in the Petranos v. May and Nationwide, Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida, (consolidated) Case No. 06-008593-CI and 08-15758-CI lawsuit that BARRED THE FEDERAL COURT THAT “SANCTIONED ME” FROM “RELITIGATING” AND “REVIEWING” AND “CHANGING THE RESULT” of the prior state Court lawsuit that went against Nationwide on Rooker-Feldman grounds (depriving the Federal Court of subject matter jurisdiction). 

Nationwide’s despicable and dishonest lawyers, the Banker Lopez Gassler, P.A. law firm (a “spin-off” of the insurance defense group of Fowler White Boggs Banker, P.A. of Tampa, Florida), Trevor Rhodes, and Lauren Haynes, continue to press their “sanctions” against me in multiple other Courts I have asked to enforce the 2010 settlement agreement and the final state court judgment in the Petranos v. May and Nationwide, Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida, (consolidated) Case No. 06-008593-CI and 08-15758-CI lawsuit that BARRED THE “SANCTIONS.”

Nationwide and it lawyers are threatening to ask the United States Federal Judges they LIED TO as described in this post, to “hold” me “in contempt” for my severe Autism vaccine injury and inability to “pay the sanctions” and “put me in federal prison” for not being able to pay, and to take everything away from me including the medical property and funds that pay for my Autism vaccine injury and brain injury care and special needs that remain very underfunded. THAT is "Nationwide" who "is on Your Side."

What people need to understand about Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company if you are a policyholder or are thinking of doing business with them is this:

1.)  NATIONWIDE will RENEG after it signs a settlement agreement with you – their settlement agreements are not worth the paper they are written on;

2.)  NATIONWIDE is an insurance company that will VICIOUSLY attack Autism vaccine injury victims the moment Nationwide learns the person has an Autism vaccine injury TO DESTROY THAT AUTISTIC PERSON’S LIFE;

3.)  NATIONWIDE’S advertising slogan “Nationwide is on Your Side,” is FALSE ADVERTISING;


5.)  NATIONWIDE will make you promises in settlement agreement Nationwide HAS NO INTENTION OF KEEPING;


If you want to do business with Nationwide, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

A Letter to My Husband Regarding The Florida Supreme Court Wacking His Law License To Target My Autism Vaccine Injury - PATHETIC

I am posting the letter below that I wrote to my husband, copied to the Media who defamed me with malice:

"Excuse me, but you are not using my confidential client information against me are you ? You were my lawyer, until The Florida Bar and Florida Supreme Court's ADA retaliation and reaction to WCJB ABC TV-20's maliciously defamatory newscast caused them to wack your law license. 

The Florida Bar is the same organization that ADMITTED in writing they cannot provide any autism vaccine injury victim with a lawyer competent to represent that victim who is specifically trained in autism and Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. You were the only one. 

THAT's why they wacked your law license -- The Florida Bar and Florida Supreme Court want to MAKE SURE autism vaccine injury victims can't get a lawyer to sue for the compensation we need to pay for our autism vaccine injuries and lifetime care. That's about as pathetic and unacceptable as South Africa making all the blacks live in Soweto. Don't you think ?  

I don't know ANY Court that would not suspend a lawyer if they heard a newscast say he "filed 120 frivolous lawsuits," and I am very well aware the Florida Supreme Court does not check the actual facts before it unloads punishment -- especially if it is on a disabled person and one that dares to raise Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. 

In fact, punishing people with disabilities simply for requesting Title II Americans With Disabilities Act reasonable accommodations is ALL the Florida Supreme Court does. They don't care if a blind person can actually see the pleadings, orders, and notices before they deprive that person of life, liberty, and property without due process of law.  

Judge E.J. Salcines ADMITTED none of Florida's judges or justices ever read the United States Supreme Court case, Tennessee v. Lane, 541 U.S. 509 (2004). That's pretty bad and a horrible injustice to every disabled Floridian. 

I have EVERY RIGHT to vindicate my legal rights, and you have NO RIGHT to stop me just because I have an autism vaccine injury. I have not received ONE PENNY of autism vaccine injury compensation for support of my vaccine injury from the United States, the state of Florida, or even my deadbeat father, Kenneth Gordon Day, who is in contempt of the adult support provisions of his divorce with my late Mom for failing to pay. 

You owe me fiduciary duties, and I will not have you harm my pending lawsuits and cases on which you are my lawyer at this time just because WCJB ABC TV-20 defamed you and I, and The Florida Bar and Florida Supreme Court's ADA retaliation against you to target my autism vaccine injury scared the daylights out of you.

What they did was morally wrong. Only monstrous people harm and abuse the disabled. Even my pastor told me those who are moral people help and have compassion toward the disabled. 

The last lawyer I tried to have represent me, David Ristoff, was so abusive and hostile to my autism vaccine injury, he freaked out when I was stimming, due to his complete lack of specific autism training, and abandoned me as a client, costing me thousands of dollars I should have received in the lawsuit in which he represented me.  

The only people who would say my lawsuits and cases have no merit are those who say "Autism isn't real," and "vaccines don't cause autism," and "autism isn't a disability," and those who are ignorant because they have NO specific autism training. 

If you have to whine to Jenny Jolinski, maybe you need to recognize that the Florida Supreme Court wacked your law license not for what YOU did, but for my vindication of my autism vaccine injury legal and civil rights. Retaliation for exercising ADA rights, including in response for requesting reasonable accommodation, violated my civil rights under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 12203.   

When you consider that Justice Pariente had cancer, and Justice Lewis is morbidly obese and has a daughter with Cerebral Palsy, one would have to wonder where their extreme hostility to the disabled, and particularly someone with autism autism vaccine injury INFLICTED ON THEM WHEN THEY WERE A HELPLESS BABY came from.

The ONLY people who would say "make this stop," "control her," or "her autism vaccine injury lawsuits are frivolous," are the SAME PEOPLE who refuse to hear what the CDC whistleblower told Congressman Posey, that the CDC concealed scientific research that proves vaccines cause autism. 

Deal with it. 

As for those who inflicted injury on me, I have every right to sue them to vindicate my good name and reputation and recover damages for the harm they have done to me. 

Your autistic wife."

REPORTING ON THE REPORTERS: Autism Vaccine Injury First Amendment Media, Florida Bar, and Florida Supreme Court Retaliation

This is a blog post by an autism vaccine injury victim. 

I am one of the autism vaccine injury victims the CDC injured as recently revealed by the CDC whistle blower by hiding the known fact that autism can be caused by vaccine injury. 

As the Autism community knows, the mainstream Media has been blocking the autism vaccine injury stories. 

The mainstream Media shows no news stories about what it is like for the parents of children with autism vaccine injuries, or news stories about what life is actually like for adults with autism vaccine injuries.

We autism vaccine injury victims who grow up into adulthood face an almost total lack of autism funding, a Vaccine Court that denies compensation for vaccine injuries, our parents passing on while we are still dependent on them for our basic needs, a hostile court system almost everywhere that refuses over many lawsuits to give us a fair trial or compensation for the injuries inflicted on us as autism vaccine injury victims, and Media who will even go out of their way to injure the autism vaccine injury victim in the most devastating way.

As the CDC whistleblower story was coming out in the last week or so, there were many hits on my Autism Childhood Vaccine Injury webpage, and an ABC affiliate, WCJB TV-20 in Gainesville, Florida came to my adult autism pony breeding farm with their cameras rolling and published and republished a defamatory newscast with malice or reckless disregard for its truth or falsity.

It is clear from the TIMING of it, that the Media, WCJB TV-20 targeted my husband, David Petrano, who is my autism caregiver and only autism financial supporter, and myself directly (and indirectly through defaming my husband), because I am a publicly known adult autism vaccine injury victim and the CDC whistleblower story broke. 

It should be noted, as the Autism community knows, that at CNN kept "taking down" the CDC whistleblower autism vaccine injury story every time Autism parents and others in the Autism community put the story back up.

As the Autism community has been publishing on Twitter by the hundreds of tweets, there has been a virtual Media Black Out on the CDC whistleblower story that vaccines cause autism. 

It was BAD ENOUGH that the mainstream Media was "taking down" and engaging in a Media Black Out of the CDC whistleblower vaccines cause autism story and CDC whistleblower disclosures, but THEN WHAT CAME NEXT --what ABC mainstream Media affiliate DID to me and my Autism family and caregiver WENT BEYOND BELIEF. 

On about October 28, 2014, as The Florida Bar records custodian records release made to me this morning shows, WCJB TV-20 approached Karen Y. Kirksey, Media official for The Florida Bar, stating: "Caller: Bibi Bakash, "Name of Media: WCJB ABC 20, Location of Bureau: Gainesville, ... Information Category: Lawyer Ethics, Lawyer Discipline, Information Requested: Reporter said her station has received several complaints about an attorney who's filed 120 lawsuits. Is he eligible to practice ?"

The Florida Bar's Medial official, Karen Y. Kirksey, knew the "120 lawsuits" statement was verifiable false, because my husband, David, has not even had that many cases or lawsuits since he was licensed as a lawyer in 2003, and because The Florida Bar had in its possession and was whining that an Americans With Disabilities Act "reasonable accommodations" Order signed and entered by Sarasota, Florida Chief Circuit Judge Rick deFuria was, according to The Florida Bar's bar discipline prosecutors assigned to my husband's case, "frivolous."

Circuit Judge deFuria's Order, captioned "Order Granting Accommodations," and entered on June 18, 2013 in the Circuit Court of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit of Florida clearly stated: 

"Mr. Petrano has raised the need for special accommodations with regards to his own disabilities, and the disabilities of his wife, with whom he is responsible for her care ... it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED that all hearings to be held in this case shall be set no earlier than 3:00 p.m. because doing so is an accommodation that the Court has to recognize with his care for his wife. Further it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED that Mr. Petrano, at his own expense, may hire a court reporter to provide real time transcription for him to be able to see the testimony of witnesses and arguments of counsel in all hearings...."

CLEARLY, when the Florida Bar's Media official, Karen Y. Kirksey, knew the "120 lawsuits" statement was verifiable false -- particularly since how could Karen Y. Kirksey actually believe it would be true that an attorney caring for an adult autism vaccine injury victim in the mornings such that he could not have hearings until 3:00 PM WOULD HAVE THE TIME to file "120 lawsuits," much less as WCJB ABC Gainesville, Florida falsely stated, "120 frivolous lawsuits" when they published their defamatory newscast to SMEAR, TARGET, and DEFAME and adult autism vaccine injury victim and her caregiver husband ?

The Florida Bar's Media official, Karen Y. Kirksey, who knew the "120 lawsuits" statement was verifiablY false encouraged, ratified, adopted, and incited WCJB ABC TV-20 in Gainesfille, Florida to publish its defamatory with malice newscast showing my adult autism pony breeding farm, with a caption over the video stating "Excessive Litigation," and defaming my husband David, and me through him (both by showing my pony breeding farm and because he is known to be my lawyer), falsely stating that David (and I) had "filed 120 frivolous lawsuits."

IMAGINE, AUTISM PARENTS, ANYONE DOING THAT TO AN ADULT AUTISM VACCINE INJURY VICTIM !!! A person who would do such a harmful thing has Rocks in their Head and NO compassion or empathy for what it means to be an autism vaccine injury victim or their families. 

WCBJ ABC TV-20, Gainesville, Florida's malicious defamatory newscast of about October 28, 2014 was TARGETED to (1.) taint and prejudice virtually every jury pool in the Northern District of Florida courts, as well as virtually every judge to harm my autism vaccine injury by causing decisions to be taken against me and my autism caregiver; (2.) taint and prejudice the Florida Supreme Court who was sitting on a Bar discipline case brought against my husband, David, precisely for his representing me in my autism vaccine injury lawsuits and ADA autism vaccine injury lawsuits; (3.) SMEAR, DEFAME, and DESTROY my adult autism vaccine injury pony breeding farm that is the only work I can do to try to support myself because after CDC and the US and state governments injured me by the vaccine that caused my autism, they left me with NO autism vaccine injury funding, supports, services, or medical care -- except to try to do the only thing I CAN DO to try struggle to meet my needs; and (4.) ensure that all of my neighbors become hostile to me wherever I try to live, to oust me as a person with an autism vaccine injury from living integrated in the community.

I contacted the WCBJ ABC TV-20, Gainesville "news director," Andrea (who refused to give her last name), who apparently supervised the reporter Bibi Baksh, who published the malicious defamatory newscast targeted to inflicting the greatest amount of harm on me as an  adult autism vaccine injury victim and on my caregiver husband, David, but this Andrea could not and refused to identify by name and case number each of the so-called "120 frivolous lawsuits," and said she "didn't have to." She told me to prove the statements were false. 

After I sent WCJB ABC TV-20, Gainesville's news director, Andrea, proof of the verifiable falsity of the defamatory statements the Media published, her apparent supervisor contacted an in-house Maine lawyer named Melinda Shain, who made intimidating threats against me NO person trained in autism would make to try to obstruct and chill my legal right to file a lawsuit for defamation with malice, and Ms. Shain absolutely REFUSED to publish any retraction of the false defamatory statements published by WCJB ABC TV-20 targeting my adult autism vaccine injury, my pony breeding farm, and my caregiver husband David. This shows WCJB ABC's malicious attack targeting my autism vaccine injury WAS INTENTIONAL. 

WCJB ABC TV-20, Gainesville, Florida TIMED its malicious defamatory attacks on me as an adult autism vaccine injury victim and my caregiver husband David (my autism family) to coincide with the CDC whistleblower disclosures that vaccines cause autism and the Media Black Out of the autism vaccine injury stories. 

It is CLEAR my autism vaccine injury and the Media Black Out of the CDC whistleblower vaccines cause autism story was the impetus for WCJB ABC TV-20 to COME TO MY HOME and maliciously defame me.

MORE OUTRAGEOUS STILL, WCJB ABC TV-20, Gainesville, Florida's malicious defamatory newscast SUCCEEDED in tainting and prejudicing the Florida Supreme Court whose Justices are located in Tallahassee in Northern Florida where the malicious defamatory WCJB ABC TV-20 newscast was widely published, into REACTING by issuing a 91 day suspension of my husband, David, from the practice of law. 

NOW .... ALL OF YOU PARENTS, CAREGIVERS, and others involved with people with autism, as well as adults with autism and Asperger's, if YOU THINK THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS how ABC Media TARGETED an adult autism vaccine injury victim and her husband caregiver TO CAUSE REACTIONS THAT RESULTED IN THE SUSPENSION OF THE AUTISTIC CAREGIVER'S LIVELIHOOD USED TO PROVIDE THE ONLY FUNDING SUPPORT TO AN ADULT AUTISM VACCINE INJURY VICTIM, then ...

You can WRITE those responsible HERE and express your OUTRAGE at this autism Injustice aimed at injuring an autism family and adult autism vaccine injury victim EVEN MORE than  the CDC and our U.S. and state governments already have:

Adults autism vaccine injury victims already have life hard enough with so little autism funding, supports, and services, and what an autism vaccine injury IS.

IT'S OUTRAGEOUS that ANY governmental entity - including The Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court, would react to a Media ATTACK on an autism vaccine injury victim's family to REMOVE THE AUTISM FAMILY MEMBERS MEANS OF PROVIDING AUTISM FINANCIAL SUPPORT for ANY reason.

Importantly - WCJB ABC TV-10, Gainesville's actions prove it is GUILTY of the defamation with malice of this autism vaccine  injury victim and her caregiver husband, David Petrano, whose professional license was suspended IMMEDIATELY AFTER the WCJB ABC TV-10, Gainesville defamation hit piece was published widely to viewers. 

HOW DO WE KNOW ? WCJB ABC TV-10, Gainesville did a "take down" of the story, HERE: ...

even though WCJB ABC TV-10, Gainesville refuses to retract and correct its malicious defamatory newscast publication and republications SMEARING an autism vaccine injury victim that cost her caregiver husband his law license with which he provided her the autism financial support our Government refuses to provide to victims of autism vaccine injuries as a matter of right. 

REMEMBER, ANY ONE OF YOU AUTISM VACCINE INJURY PARENTS could LOSE YOUR JOB OR PROFESSIONAL LICENSE YOU NEED TO PAY FOR YOUR FAMILY MEMBER'S AUTISM VACCINE INJURY if the Media SMEARS you the same way my autism vaccine injury family was SMEARED by WCJB ABC TV-10, Gainesville, Florida to PUNISH me and my family for my having an autism vaccine injury !
