Update: Mountain Views "Observer" Contempt Of Court Hearing Postponed Until May

The Judge granted a continuance until some time next month. The unconfirmed report is that there has been a death in Susan Henderson's family.

"I am not buying into your explanations or excuses." - California Superior Court Judge Edward Simpson to Mountain Views "Observer" Publisher H. Susan Henderson on March 12, 2009.

Court Order to MVO/N publisher H. Susan Henderson: "You are hereby ordered to appear on April 15 at 8:30 AM to show cause, if you have any, why you should not be adjudged in Contempt of Court and punished accordingly, for willfully disobeying the Judgement of this Court made on December 30, 2008, in the above action."

The issue for the Honorable Edward Simpson was the continued usage of the word "Observer" despite the Judge's order to remove it from all manifestations of the publication. And we're assuming here that would include such things as newspaper racks.

New information will be posted here on the Sierra Madre Tattler site just as soon as word arrives from the Courthouse.


  1. Fingers, toes, everything crossed this morning. The Dunns
    have worked hard and long to get some justice here. Let's
    hope this judge recognizes his responsibility to deliver

  2. It's almost 9:30 - what happened?????

  3. I was on jury duty and Judge Simpson was our judge. Very nice man and very fair but when the attorney's made him mad watch out..should be interesting today.

  4. Teachers know that during Final Exam periods, the death rate among students' relatives skyrockets - it's very difficult to tell if one genuinely needs to extend condolences or not. Hope this isn't the same kind of thing.

  5. If it is true that is sad but,
    Who, when, and where? Show us the proof.

  6. I used to have a painter/handyman do work home.
    Over the years, his mother died 4 times!

  7. Nonevent today for sure. But who knows what the future holds?

  8. Hard to believe, but always a very good failsafe excuse, for who but an insensitive lout would argue it (OK, call me insensitive)? If it's not true, however, this gives us further proof of Ms. Henderson's towering cowardice. I will hope for the justice we are all expecting to be meted out next month, as scheduled (per postponement).

    I was just at Faschings Car Wash in Arcadia, and there was Henderson's paper, in the stand with THE OLD NAME, just like your picture Tattler. Bet it's like that at every stand?

  10. Please read and patronize THE SIERRA MADRE WEEKLY!
    Our own Sir Eric has his columns printed in this paper, which you can always pick up most anywhere in town.

  11. Wasn't Susan Henderson the Hollywood actress that played the mother in the Partridge Family?????? So, does that mean the current Mzzz Henderson we have is an actress in our midst that's just playing another part? An apparition, so to speak. As in Harry Potter. Hmmmmm, as I scratch my head & ponder how alike this lack of respect & ability to feed off the souls of the good Sierra Madreans is so like the Dementors I do , in fact, think that Mzzz Henderson is all fluff, Therefore, Mzzzz Henderson, "Ridiculous!!!!!! Now, go disappear & be gone!!!! May the crucefix be upon you, old hag!!!!!!!!
