Safe Mode: On
Evidence of widespread corruption of the US courts and proposed corrective measures submitted to the US House of Representatives

Human Rights Alert (NGO) submitted to the House Subcommittee on Judicial Reform, chaired by Representative Darrell Issa, evidence of widespread corruption and racketeering in the US courts from coast to coast. The records pertain to the US district courts, the US courts of appeals, and the US Supreme Court. Many of the cases involved abuse of individuals by large corporation and financial institutions. The report focused on the issuance of fraudulent records in the electronic record systems of the US courts, and conduct of simulated litigation. [i] With it, Human Rights Alert proposed corrective measures, which likewise, focus on restoring the authority and integrity of the offices of the clerks of the US courts and the electronic records of the courts. Regardless, no measure can substitute for vigilance of the People in monitoring conduct of the courts. It is unlikely that the US would emerge from the current financial and constitutional crisis, unless corruption of the courts and the legal profession is thoroughly addressed.

Los Angeles, March 15 �Corruption of the US courts has reached a level that has not been seen in a century or more,� says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).


At the urging of Mr William Windsor of Lawless America, Human Rights Alert (NGO) has submitted to the US House of Representative�s Subcommittee on Judicial Reform evidence of widespread corruption of the US courts and proposed corrective actions. [ii] The subcommittee is chaired by Representative Darrell Issa (R) from California. Darrell Issa is also Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.


The evidence presented by Human Rights Alert was not based on legal review, but primarily on review of integrity, or lack thereof, in the electronic records of the US courts, and conduct of simulated litigation. [iii]


The records, submitted by Human Rights Alert, provide indisputable evidence of corruption of the US courts from coast to coast:

- California Judges VIRGINIA PHILLIPS, JOHN WALTER, Magistrate CARLA WOEHRLE, Clerk TERRY NAFISI [iv,v,vi]

- Colorado Judge CHRISTINE ARGUELLO, Clerk JAMES N HATTEN [vii,viii]

- District of Columbia Judges JOHN D BATES and RICHARD LEON, Clerk NANCY MAYER WHITTINGTON [ix,x,xi,xii]

- Georgia Judges ORINDA EVANS, THOMAS W THRASH, Jr, Clerk [xiii,xiv]

- Massachusetts Judge GEORGE O'TOOL, Clerk SARAH THORNTON [xv,xvi,xvii,xviii]

- New York Judge JED RAKOFF, Clerk RUBY KRAJICK [xix,xx,xxi,xxii]

- Texas - Judge ROYAL FURGESON, Clerk KAREN MITCHELL [xxiii]


Particularly alarming are the cases, involving the US courts of appeals:

- 5th Circuit Circuit Judge PATRICK HIGGINBOTHAM, JERRY E SMITH, CATHARINA HAYNES, Clerk LYLE W CAYCE. [xxiv]

- 9th Circuit Chief Judge Judges ALEX KOZINSKI, Circuit Judges WILLIAM CANBY, Jr, EDWARD LEAVY, ARTHUR L ALARCON, DIARMUID F O�SCANNLAIN, BARRY G SILVERMAN, STEPHEN REINHARDT, MARSHA BERZON and MILAN SMITH, Clerk MOLLY C DWYER, and [xxv,xxvi,xxvii,xxviii,xxix]

- 11th Circuit Chief Judge JOEL F DUBINA, Circuit Judges R LANIER ANDERSON III, BEVERLY B MARTIN, WILLIAM H PRIOR Jr, CHARLES R WILSON, Clerk of the Court JOHN LEY. [xxx]


In two cases, the evidence of conduct of simulated review from fraudulent records of the lower courts was presented to the courts, while such reviews were under way:

- The US Supreme Court unlawfully �returned� papers that had been duly filed. [xxxi]

- The US Court of Appeals, for the 9th Circuit refused to rule on the matter, and continued the conduct of a simulated appeal. [xxxii]


�The evidence shows that the courts of appeals and the Supreme Court routinely patronize corruption in the lower courts,� says Dr Zernik.


The evidence also includes numerous requests for impeachment of US judges and clerks. The most notable among them is the request for impeachment of the Clerk US Supreme Court WILLIAM SUTER. [xxxiii,xxxiv] Criminal complaint was also filed with the US Attorney Office in Washington DC against the Supreme Court�s Counsel DANNY BICKELL. [xxxv] In both cases, public corruption and deprivation of rights were alleged, through denial of the right to file papers in court, and through the issuance of false and deliberately misleading papers on behalf of the Supreme Court.


Most of the cases involve abuse of the rights of individual to benefit large corporations and financial institutions, or corrupt officers of the states� justice systems, through the issuance of fraudulent court records.


The US courts at all levels implemented with no public oversight electronic records systems, which amounted to a sea change in procedures related to filing of papers by parties, and the entry of orders and judgments by the courts themselves. The failure to validate the integrity of these systems left them widely open for dishonest manipulations.


The evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the US courts was peer-reviewed and published by an international Computer Science journal. [xxxvi]


The evidence also documents that the US courts have effectively instituted a policy, denying the right to file papers in court, which include evidence of corruption of judges or other government officers. [xxxvii,xxxviii,xxxix,xl]


�Upon review of the evidence, a reasonable person would be seriously concerned about large-scale bribing of US judges and clerks by banking institutions, most notably BANK OF AMERICA CORPORATION,� says Dr Zernik. [xli,xlii,xliii] For example, US Judge VIRGINIA PHILLIPS and US Magistrate CARLA WOEHRLE refused to file statements on the record regarding financial benefits to them by BANK OF AMERICA, while engaging in fraud on the court to benefit Bank of America.


The evidence also includes review of the litigation of SEC v Bank of America Corporation in the US District Court, Southern District of New York, involving Judge JED RAKOFF and Clerk RUBY KRAJICK. The case was widely reported by media, and the Wall Street Journal hailed Judge JED RAKOFF for being �tough� in enforcement of banking regulation under the current crisis.


The fraud by Judge JED RAKOFF and others in litigation of SEC v Bank of America Corporation was peer-reviewed and presented in the 16th World Criminology Congress. [xliv,xlv]

The executive branch has so far consistently refused to address the corruption of the state and US courts:

- Attorney General ERIC HOLDER has so far failed to respond on request, filed by William Windsor of Lawless America and Joseph Zernik of Human Rights Alert, to review the evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the US courts. [xlvi]

- FBI, under Director ROBERT MUELLER III, is likewise patronizing the corruption. His tenure was extended in disregard of the historic experience of the corrupting effect of the extended tenure the notorious J EDGAR HOOVER, and law enacted in the aftermath by the US Congress, limiting the tenure of FBI Directors. [xlvii]

- US Attorneys were directly involved in some of the cases, e.g., in Georgia, and in other cases, covered up widespread corruption of state judges, e.g. in California. [xlviii,xlix,l]


Already in 2008, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) and Congresswoman Diane Watson (D) filed Congressional Inquiries on the US Attorney General and FBI Director on behalf of Dr Zernik, why the US Department of Justice would not protect the 10 million residents of Los Angeles County, California, against racketeering by judges and clerks. The responses, provided by then Director of the US Attorneys Office, �Fast and Furious� KENNETH MELSON and FBI Assistant Director KENNETH KAISER, was opined as fraud by the US Department of Justice on the US Congress. [li]


Already in 2009 Senator Patrick Leahy (D), the veteran Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee called for the establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission on the US Department of Justice. [lii] Such commissions are typically established in nations emerging from under various types of tyranny.


More recently, OCCUPY THE COURTS has focused on the role of the US courts in corruption of the US government and banking system under the current crisis.


"I doubt that even the Occupiers realize how central corruption of the US courts is to the current crisis," adds Dr Zernik.


Together with the evidence of the corruption, Human Rights Alert submitted a list of proposed corrective measures: [liii]

1. Establishing by law court procedures pertaining to the electronic records of the courts;

2. Implementation of valid electronic authentication procedures and records;

3. Restoring public access to court records, particularly summonses and authentication records;

4. Ongoing monitoring of integrity of the electronic records by the public at large, and in particular by computing experts;

5. Requiring annual financial disclosures by US judges and clerks

6. Subjecting the appointment of clerks of the US courts to congressional review and approval, and

7. Restoration of public access to Federal Grand Juries.


Similar conditions prevailed in the US courts a century ago, during the notorious Robber Baron Era, which led to the Great Depression. At that time, the US courts were described by the US Congress as "a burlesque".[liv] Consequently, laws were enacted by Congress to reform of the US courts.Both then and now, corruption of the offices of the clerks, who are charged with safeguarding the integrity of the courts' records, was central to the corruption.[lv]


"The US has developed a fully simulated justice system," concludes Dr Zernik, "It is unlikely that the US would emerge from the current financial and constitutional crisis, unless corruption of the courts and the legal profession is thoroughly addressed."
