Sam (& Princess Sandra Kimura) Sloan.
Samuel Howard Sloan (b. September 7, 1944), also known as M. Ismail Sloan, is an American author and former securities trader. He is also involved in chess, as a publisher of chess books and former member of the Executive Board of the United States Chess Federation (USCF). While having no formal legal training, he once orally argued and won a case in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. In July 2006, he was elected to the Executive Board of the USCF.
He has been married thrice and has eight children by five women. He once drove a taxicab in New York City. He is now a publisher of books and DVDs about chess, go and other subjects.
Sloan attended the University of California, Berkeley majoring in mathematics. At the time U.C. Berkeley was a center for student protest during the social unrest of the 1960s. Sloan became the president of the Sexual Freedom League. His book Sex Marchers, co-authored with SFL founder Jefferson Poland, called for sexual emancipation.
After dropping out of UC Berkeley, Sloan worked for two years for the Wall Street Investment Banking firm of Hayden, Stone & Co. in the over-the-counter trading department. In 1970, he established Samuel H. Sloan & Co., a registered broker-dealer primarily trading over-the-counter stocks and bonds. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) brought civil actions against Sloan & Co. in 1971-1975 alleging he had failed to maintain adequate books and records. In 1975, the SEC revoked Sloan's broker-dealer registration. After years of litigation, Sloan in 1978 prevailed in the U.S. Supreme Court. Sloan argued the case pro se even though he was not an attorney. The opposing attorney was Harvey Pitt, who was later Chairman of the SEC from 2001 to 2003. Sloan won before the U.S. Supreme Court 9-0. Sloan is the last non-lawyer to argue before the court.[1][2][3] Justice Rehnquist's majority opinion stated that "During this series of suspensions respondent Sloan, who owned 13 shares of CJL stock and had engaged in substantial purchases and short sales of shares of that stock, filed a petition in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit challenging the orders on a variety of grounds. On October 15, 1975, the court dismissed as frivolous all respondent's claims, except his allegation that the "tacking" of 10-day summary suspension orders for an indefinite period was an abuse of the agency's authority and a deprivation of due process." The Supreme Court agreed.
Sloan has written an extensive and definitive lexicon of Khowar, a language spoken in Chitral, Pakistan. His first wife was a native of that region and they had had a daughter. Sloan was later locked into a prolonged and complex custody struggle for his eldest child.[4][5]
Sloan had a minor role in a commercially-produced film, that later became a video game, Mahjong Hōrōki Classic
