The Executive Director, Summer Reese, claimed she had a contract and couldn't be fired so easily. When Executive Director Reese showed up for work at the Pacifica National Office the next day she found a padlock on the door. She and the other Staff at the National Office had been locked out. The padlock was removed. The next day a press release was issued.
On May 12, 2014, the judge in this case issued an order that said, in part "Pending the hearing on the order to show cause (on June 3rd), [Summer] Reese is enjoined from entering, remaining, blocking ingress into or egress from, or the passage of persons into and out of PFR's national office at 1925 Berkeley Way. The court at this time, limits the temporary restraining order to Summer Reese herself.

Is a comment from saying that the PNB vote On Phone to 'fire' Executive Director Summer Reese was 11 to 'fire' and "7" opposed?
The vote was actually 11 to 7 because of low PNB attendance, lack of notice that Summer Reese's employment would be put to a vote, and several Board members leaving the meeting in outrage.
Yee's employee Jose Luis Fuentes is the author of the motion to fire Reese.
And the small majority rules ? - only 12 of 22 PNB member group - suddenly determined that Summer Reese was no longer employed - even if she was hired in a January 2014 legal contract ?

"in recent interviews Ms. Reese has recounted a stunning conversation she had on this subject with Dan Siegel, the Oakland, California lawyer who brought another of the lawsuits in the "take back Pacifica" mobilization of ~2000, and who has been a protagonist in Pacifica's factional wars ever since (particularly those occurring at KPFA) ........
Some of these KPFK - LSB members who only very recently were elevated to PNB are included in the ousting, outing of Summer Reese. 3 of our 4 voted by phone to expel her.

This is a sound room expose for an interview between 2 KPFK late nite staffers and Reese, Pacific Executive Director, a few nights ago, providing more direct information of the conflicts, firings, illegalities, confrontations and all that is "happening" in the Pacifica headquarters located in Berkelely adjacent to the KPFA radio station.
Summer Reese has long been a KPFK local station board member and also a Pacifica National Board member, recently hired officially as Executive Director after working many months as an interim at PNB.
then a strange and unclarified series of events occurred that claimed Summer Reese was "fired" by a telephone vote of PNBers with a 1 vote majority ???? Facts are elusive and attacks are highly prevalent on the internet, easily disguised as 'the whole story' but barely intelligible.
Further dramatic interludes recently indicating that Summer Reese was padlocked out of the PNB offices alongside of KPFA's in Berkeley. She has been described as having cut the padlock, entered the working premises with a number of her supporters and is working there, as contracted.
