Martha Minow, Dean of Harvard Law School, Solicited for Representation in re: Alleged Fraud in US Supreme Court Records
Los Angeles, July 27 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, solicited Martha Minow, Harvard Law School Dean, for representation in original action in the Supreme Court of the United States, pertaining to alleged fraud in US Supreme Court records and misprision by William Suter, Clerk of the Court. 
Human Rights Alert claimed fraud in notices issued by Court Counsel Danny Bickell pertaining to Applications in Fine v Baca (09-A827) and Taitz v MacDonald (10-A56), which claimed denial by Justices Kennedy and Thomas, respectively, and in the corresponding online dockets of the Court. The notices were claimed to be false on their faces and issued with no authority at all by Counsel Danny Bickell.   Moreover, notice in Fine v Baca was shown to have no foundation in records of the Court file.
Both cases pertained to penalties imposed on attorneys who represented clients in causes, which were not favored by government.
Former US prosecutor Richard Fine exposed, publicized, and rebuked the taking by judges in Los Angeles County of "not permitted" payments ("bribes"), which necessitated the signing of "retroactive immunities" ("pardons") for all such judges. He has been imprisoned in solitary confinement for the past 17 months in Los Angeles, California, with no warrant ever issued, and no judgment/ conviction/ sentencing ever entered.
Attorney Orly Taitz represented clients in cases questioning the native, born citizenship of President Barack Obama. Serious sanctions were imposed on her.
The alleged abuse represented intimidation of counsel who stood for the rights of the people, and collusion of the courts at all levels in creating false public perception that such conduct was reviewed by the courts and was found in compliance with the law.
The courts transitioned to internet based publication of records and dockets - albeit with no validation of such systems and with no Local Rules of Courts to govern such practices. The courts published unverified online records, which the courts themselves never deemed valid court records, but which media and the public at large falsely assumed were true and valid court records. In parallel, the courts restricted access to true court records.
The request forwarded to Dean Minow detailed such conduct relative to the imprisonment of Richard Fine:
1) The Los Angeles Superior Court - published a false online "Case Summary", but denied access to the Register of Actions (California civil docket) in the case management system of the court in the case.
2) The Sheriff of Los Angeles County - published false online arrest and booking records in its "Inmate Information Center", but denied access to the true Los Angeles County Booking Record of Inmate Richard Fine.
3) The US District Court, Los Angeles - published a false online "PACER docket", but denied access to the NEFs (Notices of Electronic Filing - the authentication records) in the case, and the paper record, which was Richard Fine's commencing record - the petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which was allegedly adulterated at the US District Court.
4) The US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit - published a false online "PACER dockets", but denied access to the NDAs (Notices of Docket Activity - the authentication records), and also to critical records filed by respondents in the appeal.
5) The US Supreme Court - published a false online "docket" noting March 12, 2010 denial by Justice Kennedy, which was not supported by the Court records in the case. Access to true court dockets of the Supreme Court's case management system was yet to be permitted.
Review of such conduct by the courts was sought by Human Rights Alert in the context of the pending review of Human Rights in the United States as part of the first ever UPR (universal periodic review) of Human Rights in the United States by the United Nations scheduled for November 2010.
The April 2010 UPR report by Human Rights Alert, alleged large-scale fraud in online public access and case management systems of the courts in the United States. The report called for publicly and legally accountable validation of such systems.
Human Rights Alert is dedicated to discovering, archiving, and disseminating evidence of Human Rights violations by the justice systems in Los Angeles County, California, and beyond. Special emphasis is given to the unique role of online public access and case management systems in the precipitous deterioration of integrity of the justice system in the United States.
