The story made local headlines first. Then, the national press and news shows such as ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “20/20” and NBC’s “Today” aired stories.
Now, the case is being read by California lawyers, after the California Bar Journal published an article about the trial in its March edition.
The article is headlined “Could it happen here?” and is written by Janice M. Brickley, a legal advisor to commissioners at the California Commission on Judicial Performance.
“The case, an alarming story of judicial corruption and failures throughout the justice system that lasted two years, should raise a question in the minds of Californians: Could it happen here?” she wrote.
Brickley outlined the outcome of the trial, including Ciavarella’s conviction on 12 of 39 counts, including racketeering and mail fraud, as well as the indictment against Ciavarella.

To the Editor:

In response to your article, "California looks at Ciavarella outcome", the question should be: Why is the US Department of Justice refusing to prosecute racketeering judges in California?

Ongoing large-scale false imprisonment in Los Angeles County have been documented in the Rampart scandal investigation (1998-2000).  

Prof Erwin Chemerinsky concluded in 2001 "This is conduct associated with the most repressive dictators and police states... and judges must share responsibility when innocent people are convicted."  

The 2006 LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel concluded "Innocent people remain in prison".  It documented that the victims by and large remained imprisoned.  Judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court object to their release, since it would cause "collapse of the justice system".  The report further concluded that "...the LA Superior Court and the DA office,[are] the two other parts of the justice system that the Blue Panel Report recommends must be investigated relative to the integrity of the system".

The 2010 Staff Report of the Human Right Council of the United Nations concluded "corruption of the courts and the legal profession and discrimination by law enforcement in California".

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.
