11-03-22 Los Angeles Jewish community should investigate racketeering among its leaders... // La comunidad de Los Ángeles judío debe investigar crimen organizado entre sus líderes ... // 洛杉矶犹太社区领袖应该探讨在其敲诈勒索...

Please sign the Petition: 

We the undersigned call upon the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, and leadership of the following Los Angeles Jewish organizations to initiate investigation of racketeering among its leadership:

1) Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles

RICHARD V SANDLER - Chairman of the Board

2) Bet Tzedek - "The House of Justice"

MICHELLE WILLIAMS COURT, Vice President and General Counsel

3) American Jewish University, Los Angeles

Rabbi ROBERT WEXLER, President

4) Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies

Rabbi ROBERT WEXLER, President

5) Shalhevet School

NATHAN REYNOLDS, Interim Head of School

6) Adat Ari El Synagogue, Valley Village

The petition pertains to the following individuals:

1) SANDOR SAMUELS (General Counsel of Bank of America Home Loans; former Chief Legal Officer, Countrywide)

  • President, Bet Tzedek
  • President, Adat Ari El Synagogue, Valley Village
  • Board Member, American Jewish University
  • Board Member, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.
  • Board Member, Shalhevet School

2) DAVID PASTERNAK  (former President, the Los Angeles Bar Association)
  • Former President, Bet Tzedek
  • Apparent Board Member, Bet Tzedek (list of Board Members no longer published)
Overwhelming evidence has been produced of racketeering by SANDOR SAMUELS and DAVID PASTERNAK through real estate fraud in the courts.  Some of the evidence pertains to conduct of SANDOR SAMUELS in his capacity as President of Bet Tzedek -
"The House of Justice" - on the grounds of Bet Tzedek.  The evidence is supported by opinions of top US fraud experts.

Such evidence was central to the 2010 report by Human Rights Alert (NGO) to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. The report was later incorporated into the official Staff Report with reference to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession... in California".

Refusal of the US government to take action does not absolve the Los Angeles Jewish Community from its duties and obligations to itself and to the public at large to safeguard the integrity of its community institutions.

  1. What the heck is this case all about in simple terms?
    Posted 9 hours ago by "absu69" (USA)

  2. OK, in simple terms:

    Sandor Samuels was Chief Legal Officer of Countrywide, and now is General Counsel of Bank of America Home Loans.

    As such, he was and is directly involved in oversight of fraud in the courts against homeowners from coast to coast.

    Some of the cases were documented here in detail. See for example the fraud in the ongoing case of Susan Lomas v Bank of America in the Los Angeles Superior Court:

    At the same time, Sandor Samuels donates generously wealth, accumulated through unindicted criminality, to religious causes...

    The petition was in fact an inventory of holy causes, all sponsored by criminality, and most of them knowingly so, for at least a few years...

Please Sign Petition - Free Richard Fine // Por favor, Firme la petición - Liberar a Richard Fine

RICHARD FINE was arrested on March 4, 2009 and is held since then in solitary confinement in Twin Tower Jail in Los Angeles, California, with no records,  conforming with the fundamentals of the law, as the basis for his arrest and jailing.

Richard Fine - 70 year old, former US prosecutor, had shown that judges in Los Angeles County had taken "not permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. Less than two weeks later, on March 4, 2009 Richard Fine was arrested in open court, with no warrant. He is held ever since in solitary confinement in Los Angeles, California. No judgment, conviction, or sentencing was ever entered in his case.
