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.

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.

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.
[i] Simulated Litigation here refers to cases, where the evidence shows conduct defined in the Texas Criminal Code as follows:
Texas Penal Code - Section 32.48. Simulating Legal Process
§ 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
(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.
