Appeal Brief filed in order to get Schaeffer a rehearing with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals:

Schaeffer’s Extension Reply:


Government answer to Schaeffer’s Appeal:





Third Superseding Indictment

“There is reason to believe that the grand jury never voted to indict Schaeffer on his Third Superseding Indictment. This is the indictment that his trial and sentence are based on. Federal Rule 6 requires that the indictment be brought before a magistrate judge in open court and records kept. Schaeffer filed a FOIA on 10/27/2014 asking for documentation to establish conformity with Rule 6. The FOIA returned that “no responsive records” could be found. If the US is unable to prove that proper indictment procedures were followed then Schaeffer’s case would be dismissed.”


Appeal Opening Brief

Extension of Appeal

Motion to Dismiss the Third Superseding Indictment

“Hi everyone. I’m doing well and I just filed a motion that I had been secretly working on for over a year and a half. Basically, I found out through Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests that the prosecutor in my case never actually had a grand jury indict me! I don’t know if he was just lazy or what, but the documents I got indicate that he just wrote up a fake jury form and turned it in to the judge!! I’d say I was shocked, but nothing surprises me anymore. If that is in fact what happened — and it’s looking that way — then my whole case in null and void!”

“What they are most likely going to try to do, is avoid the issue by using procedural gymnastics. They could just deny my motion and hope I can’t get the money together to file an appeal in 10 days. Or they could put the burden on me to obtain additional records at my own expense in hopes I won’t have the money and they won’t ever have to rule on the motion that shows their crooked fraud.”

“I don’t know what they are going to do. But like Putin says ‘I’m sure the Feds will do the right thing, after they have exhausted all other options.’ I need to have enough money to push them through all those ‘other options.’ So I’m asking people to please send a money order to my prison commissary account right now. I can pay filing fees directly out of it and use it for copies, and to pay paralegals, investigators, and secretaries to get me what I need when I need it. Please help.”

“$25 or $30 goes a long way, if lots of people pitch in. $100 goes further. I will never forget your kindness. I’m fighting for my life, my freedom, and my country. My children need their father back and my countrymen need me out of here too.”

Please send some money orders to:
