The American Bar Association is asked to review evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic record systems of the US courts___The evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic record systems of the US courts has been peer-reviewed and published by computer science and criminology scholars. The US courts and the US Department of Justice refuse to address the matter. The fraud is routinely used to deprive persons of liberty and property with no due process of law, and to benefit corrupt government officers, corrupt financial institutions, and corrupt law firms through the conduct of simulated litigation.
Los Angeles, October 12 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) has filed with the American Bar Association a request for review of the evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic records systems of the US courts (PACER and CM/ECF). [[i]] The motto of the American Bar Association is "Defending Liberty, Pursuing Justice."
The US courts and US Department of Justice have refused to address the evidence of fraud in the US courts; computer science and criminology scholars found it of merit.
Dr Zernik has previously brought the issue for review before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and before the US Supreme Court. [[ii],[iii]] The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals refused to review the matter, and the US Supreme Court “returned” the papers, which were duly filed. [[iv]]
In July 2011, William Windsor of LawlessAmerica.com and Dr Zernik filed a request with US Attorney General Eric Holder to review the integrity, or lack thereof, in the US courts’ electronic records. [[v]] The Attorney General has failed to respond.
In contrast, the evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the state and US courts has been peer-reviewed and published by computer science and criminology scholars, and presented in international computer science and criminology conferences. [[vi],[vii]]
Charade in the courts through the online publication of null and void orders and judgments
“The US courts routinely conduct simulated litigation in cases, where individual seek protection of their rights,” says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO). [[viii]]
Simulated litigation is a charade, where the performers – judges, clerks, and attorneys – know that the court’s orders and judgments are null and void, but the parties and the public at large are deceived to believe that valid litigation is conducted pursuant to the law of the United States.
“Such fraud is probably as old as the courts themselves,” says Dr Zernik, “Over centuries, court procedures and the offices of the clerks have evolved to prevent such deceit.”
However, such safeguards were undermined, when US courts introduced their electronic record systems with no adequate public oversight. In particular, the valid form of electronic certification and authentication of court records was left vague and ambiguous.
As a result, today, the public falsely believes that any record, which is published in the online dockets of the US courts, is a valid court paper. In fact, many of the orders and judgments, which are publish online, are considered null and void by the US courts themselves. Moreover, the courts also routinely deny public access to the court’s electronic authentication records in alleged violation of First Amendment rights. [[ix]]
Unless the US courts are reformed, the US is unlikely to emerge from the current crisis.
The typical beneficiaries of the fraud in the US courts are corrupt government officers, corrupt financial institutions and large corporations, and corrupt law firms. [[x],[xi]]
“The US is in midst of a financial and constitutional crisis. There is an urgent need for reform of the US courts, if the US is to ever emerge from the current crisis,” says Dr Zernik. [[xii]] Regardless of ample evidence of criminality underlying the financial current crisis, none of the perpetrators has been convicted so far. [[xiii]]
During the Robber Baron Era (late 19th century - early 20th century) the US courts were described in the US Congress as “a burlesque and a sham.” Emerging from that period coincided with major reform of the US courts in the early 20th century. [[xiv]]

[viii] Simulated Litigation here refers to cases, where the evidence shows conduct defined in the Texas Criminal Code as follows:
Texas Penal Code §32.48. SIMULATING LEGAL PROCESS.
(a) A person commits an offense if the person recklessly causes to be delivered to another any document that simulates a summons, complaint, judgment, or other court process with the intent to:
(1) induce payment of a claim from another person; or
(2) cause another to:
(A) submit to the putative authority of the document; or
(B) take any action or refrain from taking any action in response to the document, in compliance with the document, or on the basis of the document.
(b) Proof that the document was mailed to any person with the intent that it be forwarded to the intended recipient is a sufficient showing that the document was delivered.
The practice is widespread in both the state and US courts at all levels.
