In 2017, Darren Chaker won again where a failed attorney, Scott McMillan, San Diego, sued in federal court alleging defamation in the context of a RICO case. The federal court dismissed the lawsuit and found the case to be meritless. Scott McMillan, The McMillan Law Firm, La Mesa, filed a notice of appeal, who will find the time to prosecute the appeal while defending against fraud allegations in federal court, see press release in Brightwell v. Scott McMillan, Michelle Volk, The McMillan Law Firm APC. Darren Chaker has retained a former federal judge with the a Los Angeles powerhouse law firm Larson O’Brien.
In 2016, Darren Chaker prevailed in the 9th Circuit on First Amendment grounds against allegations which failed to criminalize defamation. Darren Chaker was supported by several civil rights organizations including Cato Institute, ACLU of San Diego, Electronic Frontier Foundation, First Amendment Coalition, and Brechner First Amendment Project at University of Florida filed a joint amicus brief in his support.
In 2012, Darren Chaker was commended for his outreach to at risk adults and youths who were involved in the criminal justice system. As the letter points out , hundreds of people heard talks about changing lifestyle patterns to avoid continuing the path to jail.
In 2011, Darren Chaker challenged a police department with a history of abuse, in its decision to not disclose the names of its officers. After retaining a top Texas law firm, a winning brief was written, and an opinion was issued by the Texas Attorney General siding with Darren Chaker.
In 2010, Darren Chaker prevailed yet again on First Amendment grounds in Nathan Enterprises Corp. v. Chaker 2010 Cal. App. Unpub. LEXIS 7604. In that case the California attorney, Felipia Richland was up against an attorney with multiple U.S. Supreme Court wins, Tim Coates.
Darren Chaker also litigated a cutting edge First Amendment case for 7 of its 10 year lifespan. In Chaker v. Crogan, 428 F.3d 1215 C.A.9 (Cal.),2005, Cert. denied, 547 U.S. 1128, 126 S.Ct. 2023, invalidated a statute on First Amendment grounds and overruled the California Supreme Court‘s unanimous decision in People v. Stanistreet, 127 Cal.Rptr.2d 633. Soon after Chaker v. Crogan, it was also used to strike down Nevada’s analogous statute forcing the legislature to rewrite the law, but also used as the backbone authority in Gibson v. City of Kirkland, 2009 WL 564703, *2+ (W.D.Wash. Mar 03, 2009). Darren’s case continues to be a leading case on viewpoint discrimination.
