Bob Dylan and the Constitution
Bob Dylan utilizes "Gag" order against plaintiff James Damiano in federal plagiarism law suit. Behavior which would be expected from Communist China
The Court has ruled that all materials produced during the discovery phase of the Damiano Dylan Plagiarism suit be designated "Confidential" including thirty five hours of video taped depositions (all of which implicate Dylan), expert testimony, and blatant admissions of guilt by Dylan's witnesses.
It is uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan's law firms Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, Parcher Hayes & Snyder, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Hecker Brown & Sherry including Mary Jo White, Steven Hayes, Jonathan Liebman, and Sony House counsel that Bob Dylan and people in Bob Dylan's entourage have solicited James Damiano's songs and music for over ten years and eleven months.
What mainstream media has not told the public is that Bob Dylan has retained seven fifth ave law firms in this action.
Few artists can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Twenty-two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds.
As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that Bob Dylan not only used songs and lyrics written by James Damiano but that Dylan solicited Damiano's songs for over ten years and eleven months, Bob Dylan's name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as best rock song of the year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity.
Since auditioning for the legendary CBS Record producer John Hammond, Sr., who influenced the careers of music industry icons Billy Holiday, Bob Dylan, Pete Seger, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, James has engaged in a multi-billion dollar copyright infringement law suit with Bob Dylan.
