10-11-06 Hanassab v Hanassab (BD478923): Duties and Responsibilities of California Attorneys Subjected to Extortion by 'Corrupt Courts' - a Legal Ethics Question
Los Angeles, November 6 - Human Rights Alert and Joseph Zernik, PhD, forwarded to legal experts a California Legal Ethics questions, pertaining to duties and responsibilities of California attorneys facing extortion by 'corrupt courts'. The matter arose from litigation of Hanassab v Hanassab (BD478923) - Petition for marriage dissolution at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, where Receiver was appointed under conditions deemed as extortion by the Court, and Counsel for Respondent, although fully informed of the extortionist nature of the Receiver, stated that he would 'tread lightly' in the matter, since he was intimidated by the treatment accorded to former US prosecutor Richard Fine, who stood up to corruption of the Los Angeles Court, and was imprisoned in solitary confinement for 18 months, with no warrant and no judgment/conviction or sentencing ever entered in his case.
A recent United Nations Human Rights Council report referred to 'corruption of the courts and the legal profession' in California. [a] However, regardless of voluminous evidence of operation of an enterprise by the LA-JR (alleged Los Angeles Judiciary Racket), the US Justice Department refuses to take action.
The two common features of the LA-JR noted in previous complaints to the US Department of Justice included large-scale false imprisonments and financial fraud, including, but not limited to the installment of pretense receiverships, involving Attorney David Pasternak (former President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, former Member of the California Judicial Council, and former President of Bet Tzedek), and others, falsely acting as Receivers with no valid and effectual Appointment Order ever entered.
Regarding David Pasternak's conduct, fraud expert - an FBI veteran, who was decorated by US Congress, by US Attorney General, and by FBI Director - opined 'fraud being committed' (linked below). Numerous judges and commissioners were named as involved in the alleged racketeering, including, but not limited to JACQUELINE CONNOR, ALAN GOODMAN, GREGORY O'BREIN, JOHN SEGAL, TERRY FRIEDMAN, PATRICIA COLLINS, LISA HART-COLE, GERALD ROSENBERG, JAMES D ENDMAN, CHARLES MCCOY, J STEPHEN CZULEGER, AND DAVID YAFFE, (see links to complaints filed with the US Attorney Office below). Clerk of the Court JOHN A CLARKE is opined as central figure in the LA-JR.[b]In a previous communication with a California Attorney, who was apparently involved in pretense litigations at the court, the explanation offered by the Attorney for his conduct was in the need to provide for his wife and children. [c] However, inHanassab v Hanassab (BD478923), Attorney Christopher G. Weston explicitly stated that his decision to 'tread lightly on this issue' was guided by 'considering what happened to Richard Fine' (copied below).
The names of the judges involved, as well as David Pasternak's name were concealed from the 'Case Summary' of Hanassab v Hanassab - published by the Court online and deemed as false and deliberately misleading records, [d] while the Court denies access to the Registers of Actions - the California civil dockets. However, based on the departments listed, the Judges involved included AMY M PELLMAN (CE65), MARJORIE S STEINBERG (CE2), THOMAS T LEWIS (CE79).
Request was forwarded to Attorney Weston for copies of key records in the case, for filing a complaint with US Department of Justice regarding racketeering by Attorney David Pasternak and judges of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles involved in the case.

Thanks for contacting me.
I have reviewed numerous cases involving Mr Pasternak, and in my opinion he is a central figure in organized crime at the court.    My opinion in that regard is supported by opinion letter of Mr James Wedick, a fraud expert and FBI veteran, who was decorated by US Congress, US Attorney General, and FBI Director. 
I will review the Case Summary and other records that are provided online in the caption that you provided.
I do not need to speak with you by phone at this point. However, I need some basic records:
1) The Order Appointing David Pasternak Receiver, together with its Proof of Service.
2) The minutes issued by the court on the same day that the Order was signed by a judge, as served on you or your attorney (alternatively - state that no Minutes were ever stated).

Dear Mr. Zernik:
I am the attorney for Ms. Hanassab who contacted you yesterday regarding the receiver David Pasternak. I am interested in your case and investigation based on some unusual circumstances in Ms. Hanassab case. First in that the parties stipulated to vacate the receiver and a few days later, David Pasternak went to court with nunc pro tunc order without giving any notice to the parties and the judge in the case signed it. At my client's request I will be sending you a writ of supercedes. However, this document and its exhibits are too large to email.
I would be interested in your opinion but I intend to tread lightly on this issue considering what happened to Richard Fine.
Christopher G. Weston

Dear Mr Weston:
I would be most interested in seeing copies of the following records, which I believe are relatively short:
1) Order signed by the judge in response to the nunc pro, as served on you by Mr Pasternak, together with the Proof of Service, and
2) Minutes issued by the Court on the day that the judge signed the Order, as served on you by the Clerk of the Court, together with Certificate of Mailing and Notice of Entry.
In case either or both were not served, it would be sufficient to state so.
