"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country." - Thomas Jefferson


Meanwhile, Trattner in May 1981 filed a $20 million dollar legal malpractice suit in New York, which was reported in the Wall Street Journal as "Skippy Inspires Legal Jam". After I fired him, I could find no attorney to take case. It was dismissed in 1985, the Court finding that Lord, Day & Lord should have been named defendant with CPC in 1980. There were major omissions in this case pleadings as well, notably the fact that it was Lord, Day & Lord who drafted and filed the original 1933 Skippy Inc. action v. Rosefield in the Patent Office, and had destroyed the evidence before sending the legal files to me in 1978. No conspiracy count was included in the complaint. Trattner received a letter from Chester Vincent dated June 30,1981 that he told me proved his belief of CPC's "fraud", but he would not give me copy of letter. I typed a copy of the letter while he was absent from his office, and phoned Vincent after I fired Trattner. Vincent confirmed that Trattner lied to me he contacted Vincent, who alleged that the Rosefield family put millions of dollars in off-shore banks to keep it "out of the reach of the Crosby heirs."


One month before the Fourth Circuit decision in 1982, CPC filed oppositions to Skippy, Inc. service mark applications in the Patent Office, accusing Skippy of fraud, but acknowledging the confusion of consumers, which CPC had denied in 1980 and as appellee. This was blatant harassment and intent to restrain Skippy's trade, but CPC refused to dismiss case. The decision for CPC was viewed by many attorneys as being incontrovertible evidence of CPC's political influence with certain Patent Office officials, and CPC's continuing, reckless fraud on the Patent Office. CPC v. Skippy, Inc., 3 U.S.P.Q. 2d 1457, PTO/TTAB, 1987
