My side of the story as corroborated by the employee that worked there and prospectively- anyone who was at Tsunami Coffee House on August 29th 2007.
Spitzberg and Stephanie Willen had a three-month relationship, which ended in May 2007. In August 2007, Notaro and Willen were in a cafe having coffee when Spitzberg approached their table and began to yell insults at them, including fucking dyke, ugly, cunt, and bitch. They ignored Spitzberg, who followed them outside, became more belligerent, and shoved/pushed Notaro. Spitzberg denied pushing Notaro.
Spitzberg and Stephanie Willen had a three-month relationship, which ended in May 2007.
Spitzberg and Willen had a failed friendship at best. They didn’t see each other very much and mostly did not get along. This was not a “relationship.” Spitzberg heard only some negative things about Notaro and had not the slightest animus towards Notaro. There has never been nor can there be any evidence that Spitzberg would ever push or even say a mean thing to Notaro. In fact, Alisa Spitzberg, declares that none of what these people, Tig Notaro, and Stef Willen say is true. She never went near their table . She did say, “ You are wearing the same pants” and then they talked about comedy and a particular comedian and then they talked about the Sarah Silverman show. There was no argument at all. Spitzberg at one point, went outside to smoke, and Stephanie wouldn’t respond to Spitzbergs’ question of who she was sending her mail and Spitzberg said to Willen , “ Dumb Dyke,” . She had ample reasons to say it but it to Willen, but this had nothing to do with Notaro. Spitzberg was pursuing a comedy career and would not want to alienate Notaro .Notaro simply had nothing to do with her life except for Willen, at times, trying to make Spitzberg jealous and failing(ample evidence available through e-mails.)
Her statement is in the appellate record, and these judges had it and more evidence at their disposal. Spitzberg was polite to both women except for 2 nasty words to Willen for a very specific reason, and there was nothing but an awkward meeting overall. Spitzberg never got into anyones space and if you look in any way carefully and this and then the next supposed incidents you can see that this is all invented by the sick and stupid heads of Tig Notaro and Stef Willen. But, here are the statements unadorned.
What the appellate court states in their unpublished opionion that was immediately published while Spitzberg was illegally incarcerated.
In August 2007, Notaro and Willen were in a cafe having coffee when Spitzberg approached their table and began to yell insults at them, including fucking dyke, ugly, cunt, and bitch.
According to the Police report Notaro made on April 30 th of 2008In September 2007 - Spitzberg arrived at the coffee shop and confronted Willen and Notaro.
Sworn affidavit of Mathilde Notaro- as to the August 29, 2007 “incident.In late August of 2007, I accompanied my friend Stephanie to the Tsunami Café in Silverlake, CA. Alisa Spitzberg approached us at our table and aggressively yelled insults at the two of us, including, “fucking dyke,.” “ugly.” “cunt,” “bitch.” Etc.
this is not something Notaro would forget. And, then she does forget what her story was to be and puts this elsewhere but not here. I did say they were wearing the same pants but that was the sum of my commentary on these two woman's character or attire. See April 7th 2008 and email where Willen claims this same thing happened where Notaor is accosted by other people who curse her with these same exact words.
What Notaro says happened, under oath, on May 28th 2008 to Judge Gerald RosenbergSO I HAD COFFEE WITH STEF, AND ALISA WALKED IN. AND WHEN SHE SAW US SITTING TOGETHER, SHE SAID -- SHE SAT DOWN AND WAS LIKE: OH ARE YOU GUYS BACK TOGETHER?AND WE WERE JUST IGNORING HER. SHE WAS VERY AGGRESSIVE, AND VERY JUST PERSISTENT AND GOT IN OUR SPACE WE IGNORED HER.
(in court Notaro forgets that I did the ugly cunt bitch thing here and instead now tell the court that I said those exact words 9 months later. And then she forgets that and add in elsewhere and then I have e-mails and interviews where she accuses others of these exact same words and is constantly accusing others of harrassing her and threatening her and police coming . She is insane. And, no one had the time to figure that out or they did and didn't care because it was all about making Lavely and Singer happy at some point.
Notaro statement to Spector –investigator- given in February of 2009- about August 29, 2007While sitting together and waiting at tsunamis café late one night for this deaf landlord to show up Notaro said that Alisa all of a sudden and surprisingly walked in. Notaro stated that Alisa immediately walked up to their table and “accused” them meaning herself and Willen of being together. Notaro stated Alisa then began yelling and cussing at the two of them. Notaro said is was very much a verbal tirade against the two of them. While Alisa continued yelling at both of them Notaro said a mini bottle of vodka fell out of one. of Spitzberg’s jacket pockets. At one point while all of this was going on Notaro said she then stood up and she was now standing right next to Alisa.
What Notaro said to Martin Boags, City attorney, in February 2010 about the August 2007 The parties were at the coffee shop when the defendant showed up. Initially, the defendant was focused on Willen Exclusively Defendant asked Ms. Willen, “ are you trying to avoid me?
What Stephanie Willen says about the “incident” on August 29th 2007 to John Gregozek of the Threat management unit of the LAPD. Given in May of 2008 Notaro waited with Willen at approximately 2000 hours, Spitzberg arrived at sat down next to Willen and Notaro.. Spitzberg appeared intoxicated and began interrupting and insulting Notaro and Willen. Spitzberg told Willen that she was “horrible and despicable.” And “how could I be so wrong about you?”
Here I am in R.O hearing and Notaro is desperate to defraud this court so she can get me back for someone mocking her on the Datalounge Message board . We learn later that she is convinced that it is me and she has her lawyer draft tons of cease and desist letters. The Webmaster complies as Lavely and Singer is highly litigious but Notaro is smarting and Lavely and Singer have no recourse other than coming up with a quasi criminal proceeding and the help of their buddies John Gregozek and Jeff Dunn of the LAPD's threat management unit. Members of this unit will play act and this will scare the poor and powerless Spitzbergs and end of story. Well, the Spitzbergs love their rights and have large senses of self and so the story just won't end there or maybe ever if true justice doesn't occur.
What willen said under oath to Judge Gerald Rosenberg on May 28th of 2008- she doesn’t mention the entrance just tells him I sad downTHE COURT: DID SHE SPEAK TO MS. NOTARO MS. WILLEN: YES, SHE SPOKE AT US.THE COURT: OKAY. WHAT DID SHE SAY?WILLEN: A SLURRY OF HOSTILE WORDS. SHE STARTED WITH WHAT BASICLY --"OH, YOU GUYS ARE TOGETHER.YOU LOOK GREAT. YOU LOOK GREAT. TOGETHER. NO WONDER ALL THE GALS LIKE YOU. LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE WEARING THE SAME PANTS." THEN IT MOVED ON TO -- WE WEREN'T RESPONDING TO HER.
You would think that the police reports made up by Notaro on April 30th 2008 (see first version) would be included in the file to obtain the R.O. But, it is not. Because the hairbrained Notaro messes up and changes her story and that would only harm her case.
Willen evaded the investigator for the defendant but she then did make this statement to Martin Boags, City attorney, or maybe in was Katie Ford, in March of 2010. In August of 2007: Alisa walked in and saw me and Tig and looked shocked. Witness said Alisa "got in our space." very agressively, sitting down right across from them at their table, w/o being invited. At one point a bottle of vodka fell out of her purse. Alisa seemed humbled and retreived it. Alisa also showed Stef willen some loose papers in her bag and claimed to have something Stephanie Willen needed to hear. there was an open mike poetry night at the time.
They ignored Spitzberg, who followed them outside, became more belligerent, and shoved/pushed Notaro. Spitzberg denied pushing Notaro.
Purse or jacket or no vodka at all? They are trying to bias with accusations of intoxication. But, it's clear from the many other versions that they can't keep any part of their stories straight.
Notaro’s statement to TMU- as to the August 29, 2007 “incident.Willen ignored Spitzberg and walked out of the shop with Notaro. Spitzberg stepped in front of Willen and said, “You trying to avoid me.” Willen ignored Spitzberg who then pushed Notaro. Notaro and Willen left without reporting the incident.
Notaro statement to Spector -investigatorAt one point while all of this was going on Notaro said she then stood up and she was now standing right next to Alisa. After standing up, Notaro stated that Alisa then Shoved her with both her hands, as well as she next said, “ are you Steph’s keeper.” After that had occurred Notaro advised that both she and Willen then left this coffee shop, due to the fact they didn’t want any more violence to occur on Alisa’s part. As they quickly walked out of this coffee shop, Notaro said that Alisa continued to follow them out of this location on foot.
Here this alleged push happens inside. They run out this time after the push but in the other version they run inside from the outside to retrieve belongings. Here the lies really help because here we have tons of eyewitness at the ready who would have heard or see such behaviors. Tsunami is a tiny and very quiet place btw. There an open mike in progress and an open poetry night. Yet, only Notaro and then Willen see, feel, or hear pushes and tirades.

Alisa Spitzberg approached us at our table and aggressively yelled insults at the two of us, including, “fucking dyke,.” “ugly.” “cunt,” “bitch.” Etc.We ignored her and went outside, but she followed us and became angrier and more belilligerent. As I motioned for Stephanie to gather her belongings to leave, Alisa came closer and pushed me. HEre I curse them inside
Court testimony of notaro describing August 29,2007 I KEPT SAYING TO STEF TO JUST IGNORE HER, JUST IGNORE HER. THEN ALISA SAID: "OH, ARE YOU HER FUCKING KEEPER?" I SAID, "GO GET YOUR STUFF. LET'S JUST GO." AND WHEN I DID, ALISA GOT IN MY FACE AND PUSHED ME. AND THEN STEF WENT IN TO GET HER STUFF. WE WALKED OUT OF THE CAFE TOWARDS THE -- WHERE WE WERE PARKED ON THE STREET, AND ALISA FOLLOWED US AGAIN CALLING US DISGUSTING BULL DIKES, CUNTS, JUST ALL THESE HORRENDOUS NAMES. Here I'm outside
Notaro to Martin Boags about” September 2007” given in February of 2010
Initially, the defendant was focused on Willen Exclusively Defendant asked Ms. Willen, “ are you trying to avoid me. The witness told Ms. Willen, “let’s go.” at which point Ms. Spitzbeg directed her attention to the witness and asked, what are you, her fucking keeper?” Defendant shoved the witness, who left with Ms. Willen.
Now Nutso Notaro is really at a loss for memory. Now I'm focused on Willen not her while before it was always her. Here I am asking someone if they are trying to avoid me while I am supposedly in their face. This makes no sense . They are trying mightily to invent some reasoning but they fail because there is just too many versions out there at this point.
I never would say " Are you her keeper." That is the most annoying part of this-- They give me language and words that idiots like them use. I had zero animus towards Tig Notaro here and only mild disgust for Willen . But, now... you can imagine. Now, I am not a fan. Ha. Willen has committed a crime by lying to the police and and then to a prosecutor much later on when the pressure was on her from Tig. But, she never did invent the push story for the court hearing and so Willen is not guilty of perjury.And, she wasn't called to testify in the criminal matter (that arose as retailiation for a civil suit brought against Notaro for defamation, )so Willen was smart enough or lucky enough to avoid the felony charges that must result soon.
Willen’s Statement from Follow up investigation - august 29th 2007 “incident.”
Willen walked outside and spitzberg called Willen a, “ Dumb ugly dyke.” Spitzberg then pushed Notaro. Willen stepped between Notaro and Spitzberg, and Notaro suggested they leave. Notaro and Willen walked away while Spitzberg shouted insults at them.
I did call Wille a Dumb Dyke outside after she wouldn't answer me a civil question. Mind you, at this point everything was a 100 percent civil and I've always admitted to calling Willen Dumb Dyke. But that was IT. And she knows it and the filthy Tig Notaro knows it. And, it was unremarkable and outside and there was three boys out there smoking too and it wasn't even noticed it was said so mildly. Notice how here now I shout insults but they don't name the insults. Notice how the insults are now outside not inside.
In later version I am chasing down there car or following them. This is all lies and retaliation for daring to mock " You're wearing the same pants' these two narcissistic sociopaths. Notaro and Willen think they are demigods . You should seem them strutting around in court. And, I dared insult them and they sure got their revenge.
Court testimony of willen as to august 29,2007- transcript --- pg. 20
WE WEREN'T RESPONDING TO HER. WE WERE JUST TALKING AS IF SHE WASN'T THERE. SHE GOT MORE HOSTILE AND MORE IN OUR FACE. AND SHE JUST DID STUFF -- TRYING TO DENIGRATE OUR CHARACTER;YOU KNOW:YOU GUYS ARE UGLY. HOW COULDYOU DO THIS TO ME. HOW COULD YOU NOT TALK TO ME; YOU ACT LIKE YOU DON'TLIKE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME."
me talking: Willen isn’t asked about the “push” by the judge and she doesn’t volunteer this information. Now I'm doing stuff. No push. No hardcore curses, "Dyke cunt bitch." My version and the truth: Never was anywhere near their faces or even near them. I sate as far as I could from them in that coffee shop. That is why no one noticed the three of us together that night or anything about us though it turned out we were the only 3 females in this tiny place.
Willen's statement to Martin boags or Katie ford, City Attorneys, given in March 20010 . They kept replacing them. Here they are changing it up because they realized a jury will see it now.
Witness said a couple of things like, "Alisa, not now," or " No,we're not together." as Alisa kept looking at Tig and Stef Willen and joking about what a wonderful couple they made and Alisa knew all alolng this would happen... match made in heaven... Alisa's tone was very sarcastic and mocking. Tig just ignored Alisa completely. Finally witness got up to go outside and look for landlord. Alisa followed and got "into witnesses face" Stef Willen doesn't recall exactly what Defendant said, But basically told Willen she didn't have any humanity etc. Alisa was very aggressive, inches from Willen's face. Tig tried to help and stepped between Alisa and Willen and said they should go. Willen agreed. Then Alisa got in Tig's face and started yelling asking who she thought she was, "her keeper>" etc. Tig ignored her. The Alisa pushed her! Willen ran inside to get her bags. Willen and Notaro began walking quickly away and Alisa started after them for a ways, yelling something like " You stupid dumb bull dykes, stupid cunts."
Martin I unbenched my own father Boags was taken off the case because he was, at this point, really messing up with soviet era competency ploys. Soon after he started interviewing "witnesses" against me he was yanked off the case. Because, it turned out that it was obvious that they all were lying and now he'd gone and added four charges based on this date and the upcoming ones. He added these four charges saying that what happened here was stalking and criminal threats. He added this after the competeny and jail tactics didn't scare me off.
So, I'm all happy that he added these charges because my legalish brain figures this gets me to open up the fraudulent restraining order and cross examine all of the liars and to bring in my witnesses, Heidi, Sam, Julius, and the Largo Bartender and maybe Leslie Spann(who was right there but mysteriously was never called or mentioned by Tig Ntoaro, and to get the videotape made by Steve Agee that night. My Pd is like- No four charges added is a bad thing. I say no no... it is great. Of course, the new cretin, Katie Ford, is too smart to allow these charges to stand. She gets that this will not only show that I didn't commit any criminal acts but that the restraining order was obtained by extrisnsic and intrinsic fraud.
The charges are added in February of 2010 and dropped in early March of 2010. They didn't succeed in getting me to plea and or Meanie Mouse Katie Ford gets that the inclusion of these fake four charges will open up the R.O to collateral attack. It turns out that by law that I had the right to attack the R.O collaterally but the prosecution begged and needled the judge that this would take too long and cost even more money so I wasn't allowed this legal right. Now, I'm forced to do it in other ways. I won at trial without benefit of a collaterall attack on this order. The prosecution begged and sweated and whined about not letting in anything to do with this order because they long knew it was a sham and everything would go kaput just on the supposed push alone. Why else bother with competency ploys and coercive confinement? Why beg the judge not to include anything from before Judge Gerald Rosenberg signed his nefarious name to this fraudulent order.
Not to mention that they left an e-mail trail that shows conclusively that they engaged in malicious prosection- they knew that Notaro was a liar and now they were doing this from malice- ie. I mocked Boags kalpakian Waxler some judges on my blog. Ample evidence and witnesses to show that too.I can show them obsessively looking at my blog when their name is mentioned and I can show how they were duly informed of all the evidence that showed that Tig Notaro is a " malicius lying sack of shit." Not my words- the words of many lawyers who saw what she did in the course of this fiasco.
What a worker working at Tsunami that night said,
"There was no activity or fight at all"
