10-07-01 Complaint against Mr Danny Bickell - US Supreme Court Counsel, Alleges Public Corruption and Deprivation of Rights // Queja contra el Sr. Danny Bickell - Abogado del Corte Suprema de EE.UU., se basa en la corrupción pública y privación de derechos // Beschwerde gegen Herrn Danny Bickell - US Supreme Court Counsel, rügt die öffentliche Korruption und Entrechtung
Washington DC, July 1 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, filed complaint with Ronald C Machen Jr, US Attorney for the District of Columbia, against Mr Danny Bickell, US Supreme Court Counsel, alleging public corruption and deprivation of rights under the color of law.  The complaint pertained to conduct of Mr Bickell in March-April 2010 in relationship to the US Supreme Court application - Fine v Sheriff (09-A827) - filed by the 70 year old, former US prosecutor Richard Fine, who is held in solitary confinement since March 2009 in Los Angeles, California. The complaint alleged that on March 12, 2010 Mr Bickell issued a letter noticing denying of Mr Fine's application by Associate Justice Kennedy with no authority at all, and with no valid record in the US Supreme Court file to support the notice. Later, on March 30, 2010, Richard Fine re-filed his application with the US Supreme Court. Consequently, Dr Zernik filed on April 20, 2010 a Motion to Intervene, where he documented Mr Bickell's conduct relative to the purported March 12, 2010 denial of Mr Fine's application. Dr Zernik's Motion to Intervene, likewise, documented similar conduct at other courts. The complaint alleged that in April 2010 Mr Bickell eliminated Dr Zernik's Motion to Intervene from the records of the US Supreme Court both to cover up his own alleged wrongdoing in the same case in March 2010, and likewise - to cover up alleged wrongdoing of others in the lower courts. Combined, the complaint alleged that in March and April 2010 Mr Bickell engaged in deliberate efforts to obstruct justice and deprive Mr Fine of his rights for fair hearing and due process of law.
Mr Fine exposed, publicized, and rebuked the taking by Los Angeles judges of "not permitted" payments, which were described by media as "bribes". The facts exposed by Mr Fine necessitated the signing on February 20, 2009 of "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all such judges. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009, Mr Fine was arrested in open court. Mr Fine has been held in solitary confinement ever since. Dr Zernik's Motion to Intervene documented the issuance and publication in online dockets of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, the US District Court, Los Angeles, and the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit of invalid, false and misleading records. The Motion to Intervene alleged wrongdoing in all three courts relative the issuance by clerical or unauthorized court staff of such records and dockets, first - to affect the arrest of Mr Fine and his ongoing imprisonment with no judgment, conviction, or sentencing ever entered in his case, and later - to undermine his habeas corpus petition.
Human Rights Alert (NGO) also forwarded its complaint against Mr Bickell to the Chairs of US Congress Judiciary Committees, and urged them to initiate review of unvalidated and insecure case management systems of the US courts, which permitted conduct as documented in the complaint. The complaint was also copied to the United Nations, as part of the 2010 - first ever - review by the United Nations of Human Rights in the United States. Human Rights Alert's April 2010 report to the United Nations alleged that unvalidated and false case management systems at the US courts were employed for large-scale deprivation of rights.  In paper filed by Dr Zernik for review by international computer science conference, large-scale fraud was alleged in PACER and CM/ECF - the public access and case management systems of the US courts.  The international computing community was urged to assume a leading role in protection of rights in the digital era.
