The test also showed that I am bluntly honest and have no
difficulty expressing myself assertively. I am confident in my
choices, belief system, and mental/emotional foundation. These
findings are all within normal range. I am a leader and I won’t
change my actions to those that are not proper. My approach is
well-grounded. And the tester saw no reason for me to change my
approach and be redirected to the heir’s lawyers thinking. I
also had none of the mental disorders on the long list on the
evaluation form. No evidence of any disorder of any kind,
Somehow I gathered enough money from my Social Security check to
buy an airline ticket and secretly flew out to New Hampshire for
the 5/10/2006 hearing. As I said, I had been staying with my
family out West.
I never mentioned to anyone that I was going to the proceedings.
I felt if they knew that, they may have prepared a different
plan of action. Once I arrived at the courthouse, I made it very
clear I did not appreciate what these lawyers were doing. I was
asked by my New Hampshire attorney, “What is it you really want,
Mrs. Mariani?” My reply was “I want a trial by jury.” He was
I also said I wanted to speak to the judge that morning and then
I handed each lawyer a copy of the psychological evaluation
report. I spoke personally to the newly appointed administrator
and the Boston attorneys and reprimanded them for believing the
false statements made against me by the heir and her attorneys.
The heirs’ attorneys get even meaner
It seems that after I reprimanded them, they became even more
cocky and arrogant in the court room. They continued to make all
kinds of accusations against me. Yet they never did inform the
judge that they had been given a copy of my psychological
My attorney informed the judge that I requested to speak. To
defend myself against their insulting and cruel accusations, I
told the judge how far they’d gone to harass me and discredit
me. I also pointed out with whom they were all associating with
and why. I felt I was no longer being taken seriously, given the
judge’s facial expressions. I then turned and said directly,
“YOUR HONOR, what would you do if your husband was murdered and
you had been harassed from day one, without a moment to grieve?
I want you to order them to stop doing this to me now!”
The judge listened to all sides and then recessed. On our way
out of the courtroom, I noticed a man sitting there. I didn’t
understand what he was doing there, because no one had been in
the seating areas of the courtroom during any of my previous
proceedings. The man introduced himself as a 9/11 activist who
lived in New Hampshire. He was told I’d be in court that day and
he wanted to meet me for an interview.
He later informed me that there had been a note posted on the
courtroom door that read, DO NOT ENTER, PRIVATE SESSION IN
ORDER. My God, that would explain the lack of people attending
any of my 9/11 proceedings. They were literally shut out with
that sign. I informed my personal attorney and he was shocked.
He said, “this note is supposed to be posted when there is a
juvenile or mentally handicapped case in progress.” So, there
was this endless series of dirty tricks to deal with.
Afterwards, the new administrator and heir’s attorneys tried a
second time to have my psychological evaluation challenged and
removed, to be replaced with one of the heir’s attorney’s
appointed psychiatrists’ evaluators. The judge finally decided
that my evaluation was sufficient. That was it for now.
And so my dear friends, I sincerely need your help…
As you’ve read, I’ve been abused, harassed, financially ruined
in the process of trying to get justice for 9/11 and my dear
At this point, any and all gift donations to help me with legal
bills and living expenses would be greatly appreciated. Believe
me, it’s not easy to ask, but your gift would be very gratefully
accepted. And know that your gift will help me to never give up
the fight to expose these criminals and what they have done to
our loved ones, on 9/11 or in its bloody aftermath.
