Occupy Leader Bratton Held on $250,000 Bail
By Neil F. Garfield

In my judgment, based upon the scant facts and documents supplied to me this far, there is no doubt that Bratton DID own the property and probably still does if the law is applied properly.
I know of cases where probable cause was found for Murder and the bail was set less than that. The calls and emails keep coming in and I can’t say that I have a total picture of what was really going on here. But, based upon what I have the current story is this:
Bratton is one of the leaders in the Occupy movement. It may be true that the Occupy movement has been put on a watch list or even the terrorist list which might account for the high bail.

If so, the government is confusing (intentionally or otherwise) the Occupy movement which is a political movement within the system allowed and encouraged by the U.S. Government — with the sovereign citizen movement for which I have taken a lot of heat.

Partial performance may, however, take a contract out of the statute of frauds. Strong v. Hall, 253 Or. 61, 70 (1969);Royer v. Gailey, 252 Or. 369, 373 (1969). Plaintiff’s allegation that BAC accepted partial payments as described under the loan modification agreement for five months is sufficient pleading at this stage to survive Defendants’ argument that the agreement failed to satisfy the statute of frauds.
