Welcome to ProSeAction.org

As President Trump recently learned, even the most powerful man in the free world can have his actions stopped cold by a federal judge in a U.S. District court.  That’s over 90 courts and 900 federal judges who can stop a more powerful party from trampling the rights of the common person.

And there’s over 10 times as many state judges who can do the same.

The problem has been, court cases are extremely time consuming, and as a result, can be unbelievably expensive.  Even when funds are available, when you’re up against parties with unlimited funds, they can bleed you dry with appeals, frivolous motions, and other time wasters.

This website offers an alternative.  Instead of paying attorneys to do all of the work, use the Internet to coordinate people-powered court actions filed as pro se litigants …

Pro Se: advocating on one’s own behalf before a court, rather than being represented by a lawyer.
The right of a party to a legal action to represent his or her own cause has long been recognized in the United States, and even predates the ratification of the Constitution.

These so-called “pro se” civil actions are inexpensive for individuals, but remain very expensive to the large entities that must hire a team of lawyers to defend their interests.  This mismatch in cost structure, is a great equalizer between the money and power of large entities, and the common people.

My name is Jay Fenello, and over the years, I’ve tried many ways to change things for the better: voting, campaigning, organizing, picketing, letter writing.  I even testified in front of Congress.  Despite all of these efforts, at best, the outcome was marginal.

Then I had the idea for Pro Se Action.  But having an idea is one thing, proving it is another.  That’s why, with my wife’s reluctant consent, I spent the last 6 years fighting Bank of America as a pro se litigant.

Despite losing every case and every motion, I’m happy to report that fighting the bank pro se has been very effective, and resulted in over $300,000 in benefits.  With the pro se concept now proven, this website is ready to move into its next stage.  If you …
