Los Angeles, June 3 – Comments, contributions by Judges Jacqueline Connor and David Yaffe of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, were solicited  by Joseph Zernik, PhD, and Human Rights Alert (NGO) on a draft scholarly paper dealing with corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California. The paper, titled “Data Mining as a Civic Duty - Online Public Prisoners Registration Systems"  provided data retrieved from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department online public access system - Inmate Information Center. Analysis of the data led to the conclusion that tens of thousands of persons are held by Sheriff Lee Baca with no valid records as the foundation of the imprisonment, which would conform with the fundamentals of the law. The letter to Judges Connor and Yaffe, forwarded to Clerk of the Court John A Clarke, reference the judges’ “intimate familiarity with the subject matter - corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County” and therefore asked for their help in reviewing the draft, particularly – correcting any errors from the legal perspective.
Judge Jacqueline Connor was described in numerous reports as the central figure in the Rampart Corruption Scandal (1998-2000), the core finding in which was the framing and false imprisonment of thousands of Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons), who by and large remain falsely imprisoned to this date. Judge David Yaffe was responsible for the false imprisonment of Richard Fine – where the Sheriff’s Department insists on fraudulently claiming that the arrest and booking took place on location and pursuant to the authority of the non-existent “San Pedro Municipal Court”.  The computerized records from the case of Richard Fine are discussed in detail in the draft paper – as an example of employment of the dual online public access system – where unverified, unauthenticated, and often false and deliberately misleading data is posted online by the Sheriff’s Department and case management system – holding the verified booking records – where public access is denied in disregard of California Public Records Act, California Government Code §6254(f).
Comments and contributions were requested by June 11, 2010, so that they may be incorporated into the final paper, reflecting the expertise of Judges Connor and Yaffe in the subject matter.
