MICROCOSM VS. PIONEERS PRESS LAWSUIT UPDATE
Note from Adam…
Any of you that have been following me for a while probably know my friends and I run a publishing house called Pioneers Press and that we’re being sued (predatorily, unjustly we think) by Joe Biel of Microcosm. After nearly two years of horrible stress, gross lawyer tactics, and general ugliness, this sham of a lawsuit is finally going to trial the first week of October. Big update below. Massive rally time…
MICROCOSM VS. PIONEERS PRESS LAWSUIT UPDATE! Please help us get our day in court.
The meritless lawsuit brought against us by Microcosm Publishing is going to trial in a few weeks and we need your help!
The trial is taking place in Portland and we are desperately trying to pull funds together to get our family and our lawyer out to Oregon so we can defend ourselves in court. We need to raise $6,000 just to cover our legal fees and travel expenses. On top of that we have our normal bare-bones farm expenses (rent, utilities, and supplies for our animal rescues) which averages $1850 a month. So far we have raised less than half of our goal; we need to raise $4700 in the next two weeks!
As we’ve said before, we aren’t looking for donations, but if we’ve got a book or zine you’ve been eyeing, we could really use your support right now. Already stocked up on all our latest titles? Consider siging up for our Zine Subscription Program to automatically receive our new titles. To sweeten the deal for you, EVERYONE WHO ORDERS FROM PIONEERS PRESS THIS MONTH WILL BE ENTERED INTO A DRAWING TO WIN ONE OF FOUR $40 SHOPPING SPREES. We’ll announce one winner every Sunday in September.
We’re kind of freaking out right now about getting through the next few weeks (both financially and emotionally). Any help, hugs, signal boosts, etc would be much appreciated. We definitely can’t do this alone.
Huge thanks for your ongoing support!
xoxo, Jessie Duke and Pioneers Press
