Paper 11 - A Briefing Paper for FRA_OIG - This 35 page paper, prepared for a meeting in late 2013 with DOT’s Office of Inspector General outlines violations by California’s High-Speed Rail Authority’s contract with the DOT/FRA, as well as the Authority’s untenable financial and legal position in the California courts.  It recommends action be taken to enforce that contract. No action was taken on those recommendations.  

Paper 12 - Complaint To Auditor on CP1 to TP - This 16 page paper, substantively equal to a Complaint prepared for California’s Auditor in mid-2013, examined the evidence that the California High-Speed Rail Authority had violated the Public Utilities Commission rules for its governance as well as its own March 1st 2012 Resolution HSRA# 12-04 concerning the process by which a construction consortium was selected to build the first miles of the project.  No known action has been taken on this Complaint.

Paper 13 - FRA-CHSRA Violations of December 2012 Contract - This paper was written to brief the House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarty, on sixteen violations of the contract that governs the relationship between the DOT/Federal Railroad Administration and the Californian High-Speed Rail Authority.  It was presented in a meeting with the Congressman’s staff in March 2015.

Paper 14 - Why Cap & Trade For HSR Is Illegal - Presented to California’s Senate in April of 2014, this 95 page compendium of four papers shows that, in addition to a history of the questionable legal status of funding approaches for the high-speed rail project, not only why Cap & Trade funds are illegal, but also how the Authority’s calculations of Green House Gasses are specious.

Paper 15 - How To Hide $30Billion of Capital Costs - This paper is a forensic analysis of how the California High-Speed Authority slowly and deliberately changed the statutory definition of Phase 1 (San Francisco Transbay Terminal to Los Angeles Union Station and Anaheim) to a Faux Phase 1 (San Jose to Los Angeles Union, and maybe Anaheim) ‘got away with it’ therefore presenting Californians with more than $30Billion of ‘phantom’ savings that would not be realized until it is too late to stop construction.
