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".

11-05-30 Judge Richard Leon, US District Court, DC – master of the “Leave to File Denied” // Juez de EE.UU. Richard Leon // 美国法官理查德莱昂

Judge Leon keeps papers duly filed by plaintiffs in civil rights matter up to a couple of months in chambers, then mails them back with hand-inscriptions “Leave to File Denied, RJL”. It is a convenient procedure, employed when the papers provide evidence or arguments that Judge Leon does not like, particularly in matters related to judicial corruption. It is part of Simulated Litigation practices.
US Congress should perform its duties…

  Richard J Leon, Judge
US District Court, Washington DC

Los Angeles, May 30 – “US Judge Richard Leon interprets the US Constitution in a peculiar way,” says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO). “If your evidence or your arguments are not his cup of tea, he simply keeps the papers in chambers, and refuses to let the clerk docket them”. 

The practice appears to be reserved as a special treatment for pro se litigants, who come to court in attempt to protect their rights against judicial corruption and abuse by large corporations.

In Windsor v Olinda Judge Leon 'denied the leave to file' a Motion for his own disqualification…



In Windsor et Evans et al in the US Court, District of Columbia, pro se Plaintiff William Windsor filed complaint under cause of actions of Deprivation of rights under the color of law, 42 USC §1983, pertaining to alleged Fraud on the Court by US Judge Olinda Evans of the US District Court, Northern District of Georgia, as part of Simulated Litigation. [[i],[ii]] 

Figure 1: Five (5) papers with “Leave to file Denied, RJL” in Windsor v Evans et al

“At times Judge Leon held the papers in chambers up to two months,” says Windsor, “The papers disappeared, and I had no way to know where they went, until he mailed them back, with ‘Leave to File Denied, RJL’. In my opinion it should be considered collusion of Judge Leon and Clerk of the Court Nancy Mayer-Whittington.”


In Zernik v Melson et al, Judge Leon 'denied the leave to file' the Opinion Letter of highly decorated Fraud Expert...
In Zernik v Melson et al in the US Court, District of Columbia, pro se Plaintiff filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus to Compel US Officer to Perform His Duties, 28 USC §1361. The petition pertained to refusal of FBI and US Department of Justice to protect the rights of 10 million residents of Los Angeles County, California, in view of indisputable evidence of racketeering by judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court. [[iii]]








Figure 2: A total of nine (9) papers with “Leave to file Denied RJL” in Zernik v Melson et al. 

“He is very methodical,” says Zernik. 

In this case Judge Leon ‘denied the leave to file’ of: 
Letter of a highly decorated FBI veteran, a Fraud Expert, who opined regarding conduct of the Los Angeles Superior Court “fraud being committed’, and recommended “investigation should be immediately instituted”. [[iv]] 

March 2008 Memorandum Opinion of the Honorable Jeff Bohm in the Case of Borrower Parsley, where Judge Bohm documented and rebuked the fraudulent litigation practices of Countrywide (today a subsidiary of Bank of America), and recorded that the corporation promised to cease such conduct. [[v]] 

Five (5) papers, which had been previously filed in the US Bankruptcy Court in Texas, under the Case of Borrower Parsley, [[vi]] and which provided evidence that Countrywide and Bank of America nevertheless continued to engage in Fraud on the Courts. 
Once the evidence was excluded from the record, Judge Leon issued a Simulated Order, purporting to dismiss Zernik’s Petition, and stated that the petition simply originated in a “contentious litigation”.

“It is a very effective way to address judicial corruption,” says Zernik, “you suppress the evidence of its existence…”

The case also documents the tight links between corruption of large financial institutions and corruption of the US courts, as inherent to the ongoing financial crisis.

Conduct of the clerks is inherent to corruption of the courts, as are the electronic record systems of the US Courts (PACER and CM/ECF)
A century ago, conditions in the US courts were described in the US Congress as “a burlesque”. Corruption of the clerks was considered inherent to the situation. The solution was removing the clerks from under the authority of the judges, and placing them under the direct authority of the US Attorney General, as part of the Salary Act (1919). [[vii]] The Salary Act is credited with restoring the integrity of the US courts at that time. However, by the mid 20th century, the clerks were again placed under authority of the judges.

“We are back in square one,” says Dr Zernik, “the idea behind the office of the clerk, for hundreds of years, was as a check and balance against judicial corruption.” Evidently, it does not work when the clerks are under authority of the same judges that they are supposed to monitor. 

“The implementation of invalid computer systems in the US courts is also central to the situation,” says Dr Zernik, who gained expertise in examining fraud in the state and US courts in recent years. [[viii]] 

The cases, described above, are of pro se litigants, who are not permitted access to the electronic filing system, and that fact, in itself, opens the way for their routine abuse in the US courts. 

However, the fraud in the computers of the US courts goes far beyond that. “The systems were designed to enable the conduct of entire cases as Simulated Litigation,” says Dr Zernik. Dr Zernik’s reports on the computers of the US courts were published in a peer-reviewed international computer science journal, and selected for presentation in the World Criminology Congress. Dr Zernik also filed his reports with Harvard Law Professor Yochai Benkler, and expert on computers and the law, for review. Report, authored by Dr Zernik, which was based in part on analysis of fraud in computers of the courts and prisons, was incorporated into a United Nations Human Rights Council 2010 Staff Report, with a note referring to “corruption of the courts and the legal profession” in California. [[ix]]

“Richard Leon was probably at his best as counsel during Iran-Contra, in suppressing evidence of wrongdoing by government officials,” says Zernik “but he is unfit for the bench.”

The US Congress should preform its duties...
The US Congress should perform its duties, the US courts have descended to a level of corruption that has not been seen for a century. Unless corruption of the courts is addressed, there is no chance of restoring the integrity of the financial system.

11-05-30 Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit, is asked for Jewish ethics perspective on judicial corruption // Jefe juez Alex Kozinski // 首席法官亚历Kozinski

Under Kozinski's tenure the justice system was estimated by experts to be the worst in a century, with widespread corruption of the state and US judges.  Simulated Litigation has become a routine, even by Kozinski himself
  
Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge
US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit
Los Angeles, May 30 - in a letter to Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), has asked for Kozinski's Jewish ethics perspective on judicial corruption.

The letter notes that Kozinski's essays show his keen interest in ethics in general, and Jewish ethics in particular. [[i]]
What are the ethics duties of the Chief Judge in view of rampant corruption of the justice system under the 9th Circuit?
The Jewish ethics questions raised by Zernik were:
  1. Should Simulated Litigation [[ii]] be considered Gneivat Ha-Da'at? (a Jewish ethics term for Fraud and Deceit) [[iii]]
  2. Is a US judge bound, pursuant to his/her Oaths of Office, by an ethics duty that is not delegatable to "initiate appropriate action when the judge becomes aware of reliable evidence indicating the likelihood of unprofessional conduct by a judge or lawyer"?
  3. Is a US judge bound, pursuant to the Code of Conduct of US Judges, Canon 3 B. (3) by an ethics duty that is not delegatable to "initiate appropriate action when the judge becomes aware of reliable evidence indicating the likelihood of unprofessional conduct by a judge or lawyer?
  4. Should Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, be bound by an ethics duty that is not delegatable, to "initiate appropriate action", in view of the recent official Staff Report of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, which referred to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession" in California? [[iv]]

Attached to the letter was Zernik's recent press release: Corruption of the Courts -  the Roaring Silence of the Jewish Community, detailing racketeering in the courts by current and former leaders of Bet Tzedek - the Los Angeles "House of Justice" - and refusal of the Anti Defamation League and others in the Jewish community to respond on the matter. [[v]]
Condition of the justice system under Kozinski's tenure was estimated by experts to be the worst in a century..."In reviewing Kozinski's performance as Chief Judge of the 9th, one should consider conditions of the justice system under his tenure," says Zernik, "It was estimated by experts to be the worst in a century. He must be held personally accountable, both in his administrative capacity and in his personal conduct as judge."

The evidence shows that the US District Court, Central District of California, and the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, are actively patronizing racketeering by California judges in Los Angeles County and beyond:
  • The large-scale false imprisonment of the Rampart-FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons) - thousands of victims of court corruption in LA County, almost exclusively black and Latinos - continues to this date.  It is a Human Rights disaster of historic proportions. [[vi]]
  • Large-scale financial institution and real estate fraud by judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court continues for almost two decades, through racketeering of judges and attorney in the courts. [[vii]]
The official Blue Ribbon Review Panel Report (2006) estimated that corruption of the justice system today is worse than during the notorious "Water Wars" a century ago.  The Panel recommended "external investigation" of the California Courts.  Such investigation has not been instituted to this date. [[viii]]
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and Kozinski himself are routine practitioners of Simulated Litigation.
 Richard Fine
Former US Prosecutor
 

Figure 1: False and deliberately misleading Simulated Arrest and Booking Records, repeatedly provided by the Los Angeles Sheriff, purporting that Richard Fine was arrested and booked on March 4, 2009, on location and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of San Pedro". [[ix]]

...


 
Figure 2: False and Deliberately misleading, unsigned, June 30, 2009 Simulated Order (Dkt #4) in Fine v Sheriff (09-71692), US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, issued in the name of Alex Kozinski, denying the Emergency Petition of Richard Fine from the Simulated Litigation of Fine's habeas corpus in the US District Court, Central District of California. [[x]]

Of particular concern is the abundance of cases of Simulated Litigation in both the state and US courts under the 9th Circuit.  [[xi],[xii]]

The case of the 70 year old former US prosecutor Richard Fine is a textbook case: [[xiii], [xiv]]
  • Richard Fine exposed and rebuked the taking of "not permitted payments" ("Bribes") by judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court, which required the signing of "retroactive immunities" ("Pardons") for all such judges. 
  • Richard Fine was arrested and imprisoned through Simulated Litigation in the Los Angeles Superior Court.  What media reported as the March 4, 2009 "Sentencing Hearing" was a Simulated Proceeding.  It failed to appear in court records, and no valid Warrant, Judgment, Conviction, or Sentencing records were ever entered in his case.
  • Richard Fine was held by the Sheriff of Los Angeles County in solitary confinement for 18 months under Simulated Arrest and Booking records, stating that Fine was arrested and booked on location and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of San Pedro". (Figure 1)
  • Richard Fine's habeas corpus petition was conducted as a Simulated Litigation in the US District Court, Central District of California, where minutes, orders, judgments were never authenticated as valid court records.
  • Richard Fine's Petition to the 9th Circuit was denied in an unsigned, Simulated Order, issued in the names of Alex Kozinski, Richard Paez, and Richard Tallman. (Figure 2 
The US Congress should perform its duties..."He is no Louis Brandeis... Kozinski got the smarts, but is awfully lacking in integrity," says Zernik, "Under his tenure the 9th Circuit was established as a Simulated Justice System, where justice is doled out in an arbitrarily and capriciously manner, and judges and attorneys consider corruption their inherent privilege."

The US Congress should perform its duties...

11-05-26 Vicious Beating of Prisoners in Los Angeles // Vencer la batalla contra Vicious de los reclusos en Los Angeles // 恶打囚犯在洛杉矶

Welcome to laweekly.com

Prisoners Testify to Vicious Beatings at Hands of County Jailers

During its decades-long federal court case against Los Angeles County, the ACLU of Southern California has regularly filed sworn declarations from inmates. Over the last 12 months alone, the American Civil Liberties Union has filed more than 40 sworn statements, including 28 from alleged victims of physical abuse by Sheriff’s personnel and seven from inmates claiming to have witnessed deputies abusing other inmates.
The ACLU says it does not track inmates after they give their statements and therefore rarely knows what becomes of them. The ACLU was not allowed to take photographs of the injured inmates.
The following accounts are taken from sworn declarations made by inmates to the ACLU and admitted into the federal case file.

11-05-27 Corruption of the Courts – the Roaring Silence of the Jewish Community // La corrupción de los tribunales - el silencio del rugido de la Comunidad Judía // 腐败法院-的犹太社区咆哮沉默

When government is corrupted, religious, academic, and voluntary organizations should try to fill the void, in effort to restore civil society. It is such times that test the mettle� Rebuke of judicial corruption was central to the message of the Hebrew prophets.
     
Abraham Joshua Heschel     Louis Brandeis                  Benjamin Cardozo

Los Angeles, May 27 � �Many families I know have sent their children to the Los Angeles Shalhevet School since its inception,� says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).  But Interim Head of School Nathan Reynolds would not respond, when Zernik asks for the School�s Judaic Studies staff perspective: [[i]]

Should the Shalhevet School be considered a direct beneficiary of gains from racketeering in the courts by Sandor Samuels, former Chief Legal Officer of Countrywide and former Associate General Counsel of Bank of America, who is listed as a Member of the Board?
�I have known Rabbi Wexler and his family for a few years,� says Zernik.  Regardless, Wexler, who heads the American Jewish University, Los Angeles, and the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies refuses to respond: [[ii]]

Should Robert Wexler, the American Jewish University, Los Angeles, and the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies be considered direct beneficiaries of gains from racketeering in the courts by  Sandor Samuels, listed as a Member of the Board?
�I used to donate to the Los Angeles Jewish Federation,� says Zernik, �I even volunteered to do some fund- raising once�  But neither the Los Angeles Jewish Federation, nor Bet Tzedek, its affiliate, would answer on similar questions.

Instead, he says he got some angry missives. �This job is too important to leave it for outsiders.  When government is corrupted, religious, academic, and voluntary organizations should try to fill the void, in effort to restore civil society.  It is such times that test the mettle��
The roaring silence of the Jewish community
Others, who have refused to respond on related questions included:
  • Harvard Law Professor Yochai Benkler [[iii]]
  • Rabbi Jonathan Bernhard and Adat Ari El, Valley Village [[iv]]
  • Rabbi Sharon Brous, Ikar Synagogue, Los Angeles
  • Rabbi Chaim Nochum Cunin, Chabad, Los Angeles
  • The Anti Defamation League�s (ADL) National Director Abraham Foxman [[v]]
  • Rabbi Susan Leider, Temple Betham, Los Angeles
  • Rabbi Michael Lerner, Tikkun Magazine [[vi]]
  • University of Chicago Law Professor and US Circuit Judge Richard Posner [[vii]]
  • Harvard Computer Science Professor Michael Rabin [[viii]]
  • Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller, UCLA Hillel [[ix]]
  • UCLA Law Professor Richard Steinberg, who heads the UCLA Human Rights Forum [[x]]
�The roaring silence of the ADL regarding corruption of the Los Angeles Jewish-legal community is particularly surprising,� says Zernik �They are not gun shy��
Bet Tzedek, the Los Angeles �House of Justice�, headed by Samuels is a front for racketeering enterprise.
In recent years Zernik has documented corruption of Bet Tzedek, the Los Angeles �House of Justice�, an affiliate of the Los Angeles Jewish Federation, where Samuels is President.  �It has become a front for a racketeering enterprise,� Zernik says.

Sandor Samuels, President of the Bet Tzedek, is the former Chief Legal Officer of Countrywide, where he described himself as �responsible for all litigation matters.� He was also until recently Associate General Counsel of Bank of America.

�Any sensible person, living in the US and following the news should recognize what is taking place in front of our eyes,� says Zernik:
  •  In January 2008 Countrywide collapsed, following the publication by the New York Times Pulitzer prize winner Morgenson of fraud by Countrywide's counsel in the US Court in Pennsylvania - filing of "recreated letters" as evidence. [[xi]]
  • In March 2008 news was published that the Hon Jeff Bohm, of the US Bankruptcy Court in Texas, issued a 72-page Memorandum Opinion, based on a yearlong study by the US Trustee's office, detailing fraud by Countrywide in courts across the United States. [[xii]] According to the Memorandum Opinion, Countrywide promised the Hon Bohm to cease such conduct.
  • The evidence shows that Mr Samuels nevertheless continued the same conduct in the courts as Associate General Counsel of Bank of America until very recently. [[xiii]] 
  • Fraud in the courts against homeowners across the United States by Bank of America has been repeatedly reported over the past two years.
The report of the Hon Jeff Bohm from Texas is unique, because it is a case, where a US judge stood up to the corruption.  However, the report also documents that judges across the United States collude in the corruption.  Likewise, the evidence produced by Zernik documented collusion of numerous Los Angeles judges, many of them Jewish, in the corruption.
�Sandor Samuels is central to one of the biggest frauds in history against homeowners, against shareholders, and against the US Treasury,� says Zernik, �Widespread bribing of state and US judges by Countrywide and Bank of America is most likely a key part of it.� [[xiv],[xv]] 

Samuels has most likely been the central figure in such widespread bribing of judges by Countrywide and Bank of America.
�Samuels has been using Bet Tzedek � the Los Angeles �House of Justice� �  as a front for a racketeering enterprise,� says Zernik, �and the Greater Los Angeles Jewish Federation has been aware of it in recent years.�

A highly decorated FBI veteran opined fraud and recommended FBI investigation in a case, which was in part perpetrated by Samuels in his capacity as President of Bet Tzedek on the grounds of Bet Tzedek. The case involved collusion by current and former officers of Bet Tzedek: [[xvi]]
  • SANDOR SAMUELS, current and former President;
  • DAVID PASTERNAK, former President (possibly current member of the Board of Directors)
  • TERRY FRIEDMAN, former Executive Director.
The same FBI veteran explained that FBI would not take action against the perpetrators, since they were part of the widespread corruption of Los Angeles judges. [[xvii]]
Evidence pertaining to corruption of Samuels, Pasternak, and Friedman was also part of the evidence that led to the 2010 Human Rights Council of the United Nations report, which stated �corruption of the courts and the legal profession� in California. [[xviii]]

Complaint pertaining to racketeering by Pasternak and the Los Angeles Superior Court has recently been posted by the International Criminal Bar, [[xix]] and presentations on the subject were included in the program of the 16th World Criminology Congress. [[xx],[xxi]]
Corruption of the courts is central to the ongoing financial crisis
The New York Times Pulitzer prize winner Morgenson has repeatedly questioned the failure of the US government to prosecute banking executives in the ongoing financial crisis. [[xxii]] 
�Corruption of judges and clerks has reached a level never seen for a century, and it is at the core of the current financial crisis,� says Zernik, �Banking executives are effectively immune.  However, refusal of the US government to take action is no excuse for the Los Angeles Jewish community to provide the front for racketeers.  Rebuke of judicial corruption was central to the message of the Hebrew prophets.�

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 -
