Corruption of the judiciary: Where do we go for help?

I have been asked once again to repost this article I originally wrote in 2011. Here we are ten years later and nothing has changed except for the fact that the corruption is so rampant, so obvious that as a country we are foundering on the edge of collapse due in large part to nothing more than the judicial system itself is a publicly recognized criminal racket.

_______________________________________________

The routine exclusion of evidence, the statements by more than one judge to the effect that the law is what they say it is, and, that in their court they don’t want to hear about your rights, should have us all demanding an investigation.

_________________________________________________

Since posting my article on the current condition of our judicial system, I have received numerous emails and phone calls from individuals across the country.  Based on these continuing communications I have concluded that the average citizen is in far more danger stepping into a court room of any kind, than from any commonly recognized criminal activity on the street.  At least with a street criminal you stand a chance of defending yourself.

Many of the people who contacted me spoke of going so far as to meet with the FBI in the hopes of getting an investigation launched into the criminal conduct of not only judges, but also of state agency actors who, acting under the auspices of their offices repeatedly violated not only the law but the civil and lawful rights of individuals.  Many of these actors believe they are immune from prosecution due to the office they hold.  While the office itself may be immune, the individual occupying it can be held personally liable under a constitutional tort. This can be intentional or negligent.  These tort claims hold the official directly and personally responsible for their actions; which is exactly why “tort reform” is high on the agenda of things to get done, in the District of Criminals.  http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/orgs/crcl/vol38_2/park.pdf

In absolutely every case, without exception, of those who approached the FBI in their respective states, a stock answer was delivered to those hopeful for some kind of help from this agency.  That answer is:  More

Judicial Accountability Movement: JAM is growing each day!

The Judicial Accountability Movement (hereafter, “J.A.M.”) Facebook
Is a professional, politically neutral, national activist organization headquartered in Springfield, Ohio. We work towards accountability of and from our judiciary, in a concerted effort educating everyone on equal gender rights and a system of fairness that benefits all, by ensuring a fair, unbiased, competent and responsible judicial system. We seek to omit the need for bitter, costly and unnecessary court litigation by establishing an open and honest dialog.

We believe no child should be without either parent, except in rare cases of abuse, and only when a parent has been found guilty of abuse, neglect, or unfitness, by a jury of their peers, may that parents fundamental God given, Constitutionally Protected, Inalienable rights be abridged by the State, and the laws and practices of Family Courts need to reflect that belief.

We believe, that the preponderance of the evidence clearly illuminates the need for Court reform in order to protect our children and our society as a whole from facing what appears to be a systematic, systemic problem across the nation of judicial abuse.

We believe, it has became blatantly obvious that there are two classes of citizens within these United States. Those that expect, require, and demand accountability from those that violate the law, and those that sit in positions of power to adjudicate matters before them, that feel they have no need to adhere to the law, simply because they have cloaked themselves with an illusionary concept of absolute immunity.

We believe, that because of this illusionary misconception, numerous judges throughout this nation operate the “Court” more as Racketeering Organizations, rather than Halls of Justice.

We believe, “When you do harm to another, let no man or woman, regardless of class or status, be beyond the law. “ If the law harms the innocent, the law should rightfully show compassion for it’s error and make right its wrong.

We believe when the Court’s own Record, validates and verifies the allegation(s) of judicial misconduct, to which an aggrieved party alleges, there can be no Court, above or below, that can undue the unjust committed at the very hands of the entity designed to insure against it.
Therefore in order to insure and uphold the integrity of our legal system, We give you the J.A.M.

Thus the reason for the birth of the,
JUDICIAL ACCOUNTABILITY MOVEMENT

Lawmakers want judges to be more accountable after Stanford case

1 Comment

The six-month sentence imposed by the judge in the Stanford University sexual assault case has ignited calls for greater judicial accountability and transparency in California state courts.

Among them, Assemblywoman Catharine Baker has requested an audit of the body that investigates judicial misconduct, the Commission on Judicial Performance.

The state created the Commission on Judicial Performance in 1960 as an independent agency responsible for investigating complaints against the state’s 2,175 active judges. It’s mandated to protect the public against “incompetency, misconduct or nonperformance on the bench.”

However, as the Stanford case illustrates, the public has access to little information on how the commission conducts its investigations.

The Stanford case became a national controversy when Judge Aaron Persky sentenced former student Brock Turner to six months in prison after a jury found him guilty of three sexual assault charges. Turner faced a possible 14 years in prison, but Persky said a longer sentence would have a severe impact on the former Stanford swimmer.

The commission won’t report how many complaints have been filed against Persky, even as his handling of another case draws scrutiny.

“Complaints to the commission and investigations are confidential,” said Victoria Henley, the director and chief counsel of the commission.

In requesting the audit, Baker, a Republican from San Ramon, hopes to open up a commission that has been criticized for its lack of action and lack of transparency.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tamir Sukkary joins me this evening to discuss his experience in the family court system.  False allegations were only the beginning. We will be discussing the trial Tamir endured and what it cost him both emotionally and financially, and most importantly the impact it has had on his relationship with his two young daughters.

http://www.gofundme.com/justicematters

Tamir was faced with a controversial family court commissioner with a history of judicial misconduct.  His attempts to get justice and judicial accountability only highlighted the lack of transparency and accountability in this system and the secrecy under which this system operates.

Also, we will be discussing possible changes and reforms in family law and how access to justice adversely affects low and middle income Americans.

More transparency is needed to adequately judge the judges

:Sending off brief, impersonal form letters offering no explanation for the CJP’s decisions, holding private meetings and closing off information access certainly does not inspire public trust and leaves the average citizen wondering why the need for secrecy, more characteristic of authoritarian regimes.”
________________________________________________________
The California Commission on Judicial Performance is the state’s judicial watchdog agency. Based in San Francisco, the commission is made up of judges, lawyers and members of the public. They are the judges of the judges, the sole public agents charged with investigating magistrates accused of judicial misconduct. Yet the commission’s deliberations are conducted completely under the radar, with no public scrutiny.
dd395-Judge%20(site)The CJP meets about seven times per year and receives its authority from Article 6, Section 18 of the California Constitution. The current chair is Erica Yew, a Superior Court judge.The commission’s task is to provide oversight and accountability over California’s 1,825 judges. The CJP handles complaints (primarily from litigants) regarding judicial misconduct, bias and abuses of power. Last year, the CJP received 1,212 such complaints against judges, court commissioners and referees. It chose not to take action on 1,039 complaints of those submitted last year. That’s less than 9 percent of complaints that it acts on.

It’s understandable the CJP would not take action on many of the complaints that it receives. In numerous cases, although the litigants are clearly not happy with the judges’ decisions, not enough evidence points to judicial misconduct.

In other cases, the judge made legal errors. In most situations, legal error is not misconduct unless it involves “bad faith, bias, abuse of authority, disregard for fundamental rights, intentional disregard of the law or any purpose other than the faithful discharge of judicial duty” as established in the California Supreme Court’s 1999 ruling in the Oberholzer v. CJP case.

Unfortunately, the only option for cases involving legal error is to appeal the trial court’s ruling. Appeals are expensive and enormously time-consuming.

Please sign an Online Petition to help a brave Father

Posted by Lawless on January 16

As a cause working to expose abuse and injustice perpetrated against Americans by judges, it is not often that we come across regular citizens willing to “go public” regarding judicial misconduct allegations against the Family Court judge in their case.  The risks of reprisals by the judge in the form of oppressive and unjust court rulings, reduced child visitation rights, costly monetary judgments, excessive reimbursement of attorney fees, and sometimes even vindictive incarcerations are enormous.  But we came across one such citizen willing to risk it all for the sake of true justice for the self-represented.  His name is Edward J. Dort and he needs your help.

Below is the link to a Petition that we are distributing to all friends and supporters. It gives a brief story of what Mr. Dort is suffering at the hands of two judges in Fulton County, Georgia. Moreover, the Petition seeks remedies favorable to ALL SELF-LITIGANTS. We respectfully ask that you sign it and forward it to all of your contacts as quickly and as effectively as possible. Let’s show Mr. Dort that the justice-fighting public does care about these issues and the sacrifices he has tearfully made.

MORE IMPORTANTLY ….. Mr. Dort has a hearing coming up on January 31st before one of the judges that he has publicly exposed for her judicial bias and abuse. He stands to take a LOT of heat for going public. In fact, despite losing a fortune to unfair monetary judgments and having not seen his alienated daughter in more than two years, the ANGRY judge in the last hearing threatened Mr. Dort with a JAIL CELL!! How the next hearing goes is up to us because the more public support we can give Mr. Dort, the greater the fairness he will receive. PLEASE help by signing the Petition and passing it on TODAY.

Thank you very much for your support for this important effort.

The judicial system: Closed Union Shops violating your rights

21 Comments

Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2011 All Rights Reserved

______________________________________________

 Several state supreme courts have quietly issued new “rules” that make it illegal (not unlawful) for anyone to help a pro se litigant assemble research or contribute in any way to presenting their case.  These courts however, made no such ruling regarding the use of law clerks and paralegals who routinely are used by BAR members to do the actual work required to put a case together.

_____________________________________________

There are few people these day still having any illusions about the corruption in our judicial system. As we have seen and heard, our courts are the last place to find justice or to see the rule of law applied.  Our courts, once the last line of defense in legal matters, have become nothing more than government sanctioned racketeering.  Reports of judicial misconduct in virtually every court system in the nation, is not only on the rise, it is being condoned by the silence of the Department of Justice, congress and state governments.  Even SCOTUS decided that the corruption of the lower courts was not worthy of their superior and divine attention due in part to the high level of corruption in its own court.

They are running closed union shops 

The term “closed shop” is used to signify an establishment, trade or skill which employs only members of the union.  Our courts are closed union shops which are now actively writing new rules (lawmaking) to prevent anyone other than BAR union members from accessing the courts. We are now being told that it is accepted practice for judges to create their own laws, in total disregard for the constitution or individual rights and protections and with total disregard for established and accepted law.  If this is in fact the case…..why can’t we create our own common courts that bypass these union shop courts?  After all, the current judicial system no longer adheres to the law and instead operates as independent corporate contractors relying on code and statute or newly created laws they themselves create.  I see no reason why we should have to continue to pay private contractors to violate our rights.

Tennessee Supreme Court Twice Censures “Psychic” Judge

From Courthouse News Service Man Says Judge Arrested Him ‘On a Hunch’

In May 2009

“A judge in Dickson County, Tenn., had officers pull a spectator out of his courtroom “on a hunch,” held him in custody and made him submit to a urinalysis for drugs, the man claims in Federal Court. Benjamin Marchant claims that General Sessions Judge Durwood Moore admitted that he “routinely drug-screens ‘spectators’ in his courtroom if he ‘thinks’ they may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.” Moore allegedly called it the “routine policy of the court.”

In January 2010

“Moore acknowledged he had violated Marchant’s rights and was censured by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Judiciary Court on May 1, 2009, the highest form of punishment short of seeking a judge’s removal from the bench, according to the complaint. The court ordered Moore to “never violate a person’s constitutional rights as he did to the Plaintiff,” the complaint states”

One wonders what is wrong with this Nations Legal System. Violate Constitutional Rights, admit it, be “censured” instead of fired, and say you’ll never do it again…. More
