10-10-01 Corruption of the California courts noticed by the United Nations

In summer 2010, the staff report of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, as part of the first ever, 2010 UPR (Universal Periodic Review) of Human Rights in the United States, noticed and referenced the Human Rights Alert April 2010 submission, pertaining to "corruption of the courts, the legal profession, and discrimination by law enforcement in California".

11-04-06 Habeas Corpus in the United States // Habeas Corpus en los Estados Unidos // 在美国人身保护令



Availability of Habeas Corpus petition forms does not amount to the safeguard of the right for Habeas Corpus.

Access to honest courts for review of Habeas Corpus petitions is a different matter:
  • Review of the prisoners' records in Los Angeles and Marin Counties, California, shows that about half of them are held with invalid legal records. [1]
  • The case of Richard Fine documented his holding in solitary confinement for 18 months under fraudulent records, stating that he was arrested and imprisoned on the grounds and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of San Dedro".  His Habeas Corpus petition was subject to multiple levels of fraud in review under the US District Court, Central District of California, US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, and Supreme Court of the United States. [2,3]
The evidence of large-scale false imprisonments in California was central to the 2010 Human Rights Alert (NGO) submission to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations.  The report was incorporated into the official Staff Report with reference to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession". [4]

Fay v Noia (1963) the late Justice Brennan wrote for the Supreme Court:

  • "The basic principle of the Great Writ of habeas corpus is that, in a civilized society... if the imprisonment cannot be shown to conform with the fundamental requirements of law, the individual is entitled to his immediate release".
A key finding in the final report of the Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the United States in 2010 was the dismantling of Habeas Corpus rights in the United States, and the Human Rights Council of the United Nations called upon the United States to restore such rights, including the rights of Habeas Corpus for detainees in Guantanamo Bay.

The right for Habeas Corpus petition was effectively dismantled in the United States.

See the attached habeas-related forms Alice Marcott of the Pinellas County Sheriff Office graciously sent me upon request.

I had called half a dozen or more places asking for them and gotten frustrated with the phone equivalent of blank stares of non-understanding.

I sent a simple public records request by email yesterday afternoon and received this lovely answer this afternoon.

I love it when things work the way they should.

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.

Please sign the petition: Free Richard Fine -
