GATA cracks U.S. news media blackout

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Just when the Masters of the Universe may
have thought it was safe to go back in the
gold pool, GATA's Reginald H. Howe has filed,
in U.S. District Court in Boston, a motion to
amend the judgment of Judge Reginald Lindsay
in the case of Howe vs. Bank of International
Settlements et al.

That is, the Howe case, while dismissed by
Judge Lindsay for the time being, lives on.

Howe asks for two things:

1) For permission to widen the lawsuit to
include a claim of breach of fiduciary duty
against the BIS officers.

2) For a judgment from the court as to
whether the U.S. Treasury Department, the
Exchange Stabilization Fund, and the Federal
Reserve Board have the constitutional power
to manipulate gold prices.

You can read Howe's latest filings here:

Apart from Howe's tireless efforts, GATA is
considering other potential litigation to
stop the surreptitious suppression of the
gold price. This front of our struggle remains
