GATA's lawsuit for Fed's gold documents slogs on
3:37p ET Monday, December 27, 2010
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
GATA's lawsuit against the Federal Reserve in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia slogs on amid the Fed's desperate obstructionism. Last week, through its lawyers, William J. Olson and Jon S. Miles of the Vienna, Virginia, firm of William J. Olson P.C. (http://www.lawandfreedom.com/), GATA filed a long brief replying to the Fed's objection to a couple of GATA's requests. We have asked the court to review privately the gold-related documents the Fed doesn't want to disclose and to permit GATA to pose a limited number of questions to the Fed.
Our lawyers' mastery of freedom-of-information law and precedent is amazing even as their reply brief may make any layman's eyes glaze over after reading just a few of its 25 pages. The brief has been posted at GATA's Internet site so our supporters and gold's friends can see just how much effort is going into the lawsuit:

Opportunity in the gold coin market
Swiss America Trading Corp. alerts GATA supporters to an opportunistic area of the gold coin market. While the gold bullion market has been quite volatile lately and as of November 29 gold has risen only $7 per ounce over the last month, the MS64 $20 gold St. Gaudens coin has risen about 10 percent in the same time. The ratio between the price of these coins and the price of gold is rising. If you'd like to learn more about the ratio and $20 gold coins, Swiss America can e-mail you a three-year study of it as well as other information.
Swiss America also can provide a limited number of free copies of "Crashing the Dollar," a book written by Swiss America's president, Craig Smith.
For information about the ratio between the $20 gold pieces and the gold price and for a free copy of "Crashing The Dollar," please call Swiss America's Tim Murphy at 1-800-289-2646 X1041 or Fred Goldstein at X1033. Or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
