Richard Doty, as we already know from part's 1 and 2 of this
investigation, is one of the principal players in this saga.
He has a long running relationship with Bob Collins, the
author of the book "Exempt from Disclosure". Doty is
accredited with co-authoring the first edition of the book
and is listed as a contributor in the 2nd Edition.
Caught in a lie
According to the book Exempt from Disclosure and other
sources, Richard Doty claims to have passed the New Mexico
State Bar Examination (Page 96 1st Edition, Page 91 2nd
Edition). Dr. Michael Salla wrote recently that Doty "more
recently finished law school and completed the New Mexico
State Bar Exam" - basing the statement on the book EfD.
Jakereason, moderator of the OM forum and a big supporter of
the Serpo story
recently had this to say about Doty:
"Certainly there are many flaws in Serpo. And Doty's past
causes "common-sense" concern. However Doty has a tidy
pension, no worries for money. Also, I've learned that Rick
Doty has quite recently passed the Bar. And may begin
practicing law soon. For a man to become a lawyer in his
latter third of life is most unusual and commendable! It
doesn't make sense that Doty's motivation behind support of
Serpo is disinformation, when one looks at where he is in
It makes more sense to me that Doty is trying to get any
truth out that he can. By becoming a lawyer he has given
himself a tool to fight with. I think he may well have grown
(matured) to a point that; with his contacts and counter
intelligence experience, law degree and lots of time
(retired), he is now in a unique position to aid the White
Hats (pro-disclosure) it their fight against the Black Hats
(hush-up camp) for public Disclosure."
Clearly, the claim made in the book is intended to make
people think that Doty has "turned the corner" and he is now
one of the good guys in the field of UFOlogy. Oh by the way
Jake, Doty has not retired and is a Sergeant with the New
Mexico State Police.
The claim is not only restricted to the book. I recently
asked Bill Ryan if he knew whether Doty was a lawyer and he
replied that he thought he was based on telephone
conversations with him and also that he had once given him
free legal advice. When I asked for clarification, he
replied that a number of times Rick had said he was with
clients in court when telephoned by Bill.
There is a huge problem with this claim however. Richard
Doty is not a lawyer and has never even attended Law School.
We, along with other, independent researchers, recently
contacted the New Mexico State Bar Association AND the NM
State Bar Examination Board. Both of these organisations
said they had never heard of Richard Doty and that he had
never sat the Bar, let alone been accepted by the Bar
This information was recently the subject of an online
debate between the investigators of Reality Uncovered and
Bob Collins. Collins was helped on his side of the (false)
argument by a small number of willing helpers. They resorted
to disgusting personal attacks and outright lying in an
attempt to convince everyone on the watching email list that
he (Collins) was telling the truth and we were the nasty
disclosure busters. It didn't work. Every single claim made
by Collins was shown to be false and in the end Collins was
forced to back away from both his original AND subsequent
After realising they had been busted on the Lawyer claim,
they attempted to pour water on the fire by declaring that
the inclusion of the statement in the book was actually a
mistake by Collins. Collins claimed Doty had not had time to
proof-read the manuscript to correct the "mistake". Wait a
minute guys! The statement was included in BOTH editions of
the book. The 1st Edition was published in April 2005, the
2nd Edition in April of this year. He didn't have time to
proof-read the book!?
The new and improved claim was that Doty had not yet passed
the Bar but HAD attended Law School in 2003. Guess what.
Yep, this was yet another bare-faced lie and very easily
provable by contacting the University of New Mexico
registrar office. Not only had he not attended Law School in
2003, he had NEVER attended Law School!
to see a copy of the fax received by Pat Trainor, the
registrar at UNM.
Unperturbed by the
fact that they had once again been caught red-handed, they
now said it was actually an online law school and they would
not be revealing which one it was. How convenient for them.
Trouble is, not one single online Law School has been
accredited by the New Mexico State Bar Association. What now
Simple, the new claim is that Doty did attend the University
of New Mexico and received a degree in POLITICAL SCIENCES.
What!? Yes, that's right: Political Sciences.
What the heck does a degree in political sciences have to do
with claiming to be a lawyer?
It should be obvious to most people reading this, that
nothing these guys say can be taken seriously. Why lie about
having a law degree? The answer is simple: manufacture
credibility. The M.O. of these people from day one.
(While Victor Martinez likes to claim the Reality Uncovered
forum is a place frequented by "carnival-like freaks", the
actual truth of the matter is very different to his
One forum member, "Bluetilespook" is an ex-naval
intelligence operator with extensive experience in matters of
security and Intel. Here is his considered opinion on Doty's
"If Doty and the rest wanted to run this as a
"civilianized secret operation", they sure screwed it up big
time. I am glad that this whole ordeal is being exposed for
the hoax that it is (IMO) and that they have left many
people with a decent paper trail for tracking everything and
everyone down, but it sure doesn't say much for the skill
set of the "black OPs" person (as many call him) that is
involved. Doty should have his figurative ass kicked for
giving the rest of us in the INTEL community a virtual black
eye and making us look stupid by not being able to run a
simple OP like this.
Two words: OPERATIONAL SECURITY.
Doty, you are a big boy. If you don't know what it means,
read up on it. Or call me. I'm sure you can get my phone
Here is an email received by another forum member who
followed the recent email exchange:
"I found that that cal bar site does offer credit for
those who use correspondence law schools, but you have to
take extra exams during your law school career to do this...
and most of them can only give you one year of law school
Still.. if Rick Doty has a law degree, why is it so hard for
him to prove and shut you up? Did MIBS steal his diploma and
hide it under Dan Burisch's?
Of course, you could search each state bar and make a list
of correspondence law schools recognized by each state and
call each of them to see if Rick Doty had received a degree
from there. Of course, then it would turn out that he got
his degree from a correspondence school in Paraguay and had
become in a lawyer in that country by having limbo'd under
an Eben Oak tree during a full moon.
I suspect he meant that he's a lawyer on Serpo and took the
correspondence class through space AND time, such that he
had actually finished law school before he even started...
which makes sense, because I've never met someone who
actually completed the rigors of law school that wasn't
proud to tell you exactly what school they graduated from
Indeed! The following pages contain the actual statements
made by all of the people involved in the online email
exchange and illustrate perfectly what lengths these people
will go to when "defending" their false stories.
