Lawyer and Custody Expert Houghton Sues for Libel
Lawyer and frequently court appointed custody expert, Valerie Houghton , whom many blame for the destruction of their children and families, is suing three PhDs for libel following comments made during a 2016 Santa Clara County Psychological Board Meeting. But, it may have been business with billionaire Clyde Berg, Bradford Baugh and Richard Roggia and close affiliations Berg has with the DA's office and the 49ers Levi Stadium that ultimately did the former associate of Hoge, Fenton, Jones & Appel in and caused a infighting war between unscrupulous family lawyers and unethical psychologists used in Silicon Valley custody cases.
In her complaint a "haggard" Houghton whines that she has a right to sue after three PhD's made defamatory statements, and "tried to cover it up',
Houghton alleges that Erika Torres, PhD, Catherine Ciano , PhD and Steven Curley . PhD said Houghton had engaged in credit card fraud amounting to theft for $2275.75 . Read the entire complaint filed on June 9, 2017. a year after the alleged conduct would have occurred.
Parents who underwent divorces in Santa Clara County are laughing at the Karma coming Ms. Houghton's way. Houghton, and her husband, a realtor with Intero , have been indicted by the Santa Clara County DA for felony charges involving hundreds of thousands of dollars involved in while collar crimes. See indictment here.
Parents who lost children in custody battles during Santa Clara County divorce or CP cases are mocking Houghton's hand written complaint and laughing at her desperation.
"Houghton lied in court to make money by taking children away from good parents. She was formerly associated with Hoge Fenton, Jones & Appel, one of the most corrupt law firms in the county, and she took CASH for Custody, getting custody awarded to child abusers and pedophiles based on her "social " and "professional" relationships with Judges including James Towery, so whatever they found in the criminal case, Houghton was definitely hiding much more". said one mother who holds Houghton responsible for ruining her child's life. "She deserves everything bad anyone says about her, and credit card fraud would be one of the more polite comments. "
Houghton is known in the county for close and corrupt relationships with family court judge James Towery, and for using Brad Baugh to trump up some false DV like claims , against a former client.
Houghton's neighbors report that following the indictment, her life spiraled out of control. " There were days she would not come out of the house and when she did she looked like hell, a far cry from the lavish and fast life she and her husband were known for flashing around the Los Gatos community "
Judge Zayner, whom Houghton has appeared before, with court appointed immunity , will now try to convince him, and a jury , that she was harmed by the very kind of people she once used to steal children from parents during contentious custody battles.
The FBI is reportedly looking into RICO cases that involve Houghton, Berg, Baugh, Towery, and the 49ers precious Levi Stadium.
LOL - Good luck with that Valerie, and you might want to study up on defamation vs. libel before you leave your area of pro per standing and are declared vexatious. ( Remember old Jim Towery isn't at the State Bar any more and your case won't be assigned to his family law courtroom).
Meanwhile, in Orange County, where corrupt CEO David Yamasaki has moved, corruption involving experts who have been ignored by the California Board of Psychology including Randy Rand, Dr. Wiley Johnson, Dr, Duke Bussey, Rebecca Bailey and Dr. Jorge Galindo, Dr. Jose Cervantes, Dr. Budner, Dr. Carolyn Cater, Nancy Mc Namera of 8 Days a Week, and retired OC Sherriff Sheila Ponce are being investigated for crimes against children that rise from divorce and custody cases. Supervised visits, reunification camps Special Masters, private judges and billions of dollars may be exposed as infighting between greedy lawyers and negligent psychologists are gradually exposed, similar to the fall of Valerie Houghton and the corruption in Santa Clara County that was exposed with those connected to her, which is also being investigated by the FBI and Attorney General because of billionaire Clyde Berg's involvement.
Media to Turn Over Information from Family Court Investigation to FBI, IRS and Department of Justice
An investigative media team, previously shunned by mainstream media, is being asked to hand over information to the IRS, FBI and Department of Justice to assist with an investigation of California’s Family Courts. The investigation appears to be focusing on crimes against children , where 730 court experts have been involved in divorce and custody cases.
An investigation appears to be fueled by public anger over politicians and members of the legal community being allowed to get away with sex abuse of children, as seen in the early release of Hastert. Hastert's victims were especially outraged.
Texas Judge Green's sexting scandal has also enraged parents and court reform activists who have enlisted members of Anonymous who helped Green's ex husband and boyfriend expose the judge, are coming to California Courts to do the same.
Years of complaints detailing mothers and fathers who have lost property, children and basic rights to protect their children due to the deep cronyism imbedded in the state’s family court system has led to a flood of recent media investigations that are being used as part of federal investigations. These investigations may break the bank for California's courts.
California’s Watchdog Agencies: Commission on Judicial Performance, Court Reporter Board, State Bar and Court Reporter Board have been asleep at the wheel, often claiming that without a judge order of misconduct , none exists. This has allowed court reporters, custody experts, CPAs lawyers and judges in the family court system to engage in mail fraud, tax evasion and illicit conduct that promotes and protects pedophilia, child abuse , domestic violence, and sex trafficking of children trapped in a very broken system where their parents are unable to protect them.
A media investigation, coupled with help from WikiLeaks documents, and information provided by Anonymous Hackers has uncovered deep corruption and misuse of public funds in Sonoma , Marin, Napa, Alameda, Solano , Contra Costa, Sacramento, Santa Clara and Orange Counties, where a small group of researchers, reporters and editors have been investigating family court corruption and dysfunction for the past 10 years.
Secret court proceedings, hidden reports and misconduct of judges, lawyers, court employees and experts appear to be at the center of the investigation, where information is being forwarded to federal authorities. Judges in trial courts and court of appeals are being investigated and flagrant violation of the law is being found in county court systems up and down the state of California. Over 1000 cases have been audited and investigated by the media, and thousands of documents from those audits are being requested by federal authorities.
730 experts, those appointed by California judges and paid with both public and private funds, can be phycologists, attorneys, therapists, supervised visitation agencies, CPAs, even realtors. Modern family court appear to be willing to accept the word of these highly paid experts even when the experts break the law or ethical duties to give testimony and reports in divorce, probate or custody cases.
Appointing an expert allows a judge to be essentially incompetent and many of these experts can be scapegoats for judges abusing their discretion. There also appears to be strong financial links between family court judges, family lawyers and experts used routinely in family law cases, where backroom and cash deals evade lawful disclosure, and the IRS.
As ABC, NBC,CBS, CNN. USA Today, Gannett , Bay Area News Group , The Washington Post , The New York Times and other mainstream media groups, rush to begin covering family court issues, an independent investigative team may scoop them all with the information they are in the process of handing over to the state auditor and federal authorities.
Even Court Reporters , employed by the courts and paid privately to produce transcripts in divorce and custody cases, are not immune from investigation. Many court reporters appear to be an important link in a judicial racket that is allegedly using children and homes to pay experts unconscionable fees to experts who help protect abusers and crooks.
For example, the investigative team has collected recordings from litigants trying to call attention to family court problems. Some victims and protective parents have secretly recorded their hearings, only to find court transcripts do not match the actual proceeding. Lawyers and litigants are also alleging court reporters are selectively delaying production of court transcripts to benefit one party, a certain lawyer, or to protect a very bad judge.
Court reporters appear to be assisting judges with changing transcripts and engaging in “Hometowning” that benefits only a few lawyers and family law judges. Complaints are beginning to flood the Court Reporter board.
Custody experts, paid by one party , and routinely appointed by family courts, appear to consistently issue reports favorable to the paying party, even when those reports violate ethics and California Rules of Court. A small circle of judges, lawyers and experts continue to emerge over and over in the same counties, where they sit , and are handsomely paid in what are classified as the worst divorce and custody cases. Those same cases prove very profitable for a handful of lawyers and experts. Even judges appear to be making money from these cases, in deferred compensation that does not require disclosure.
These so- called "experts" are now drawing emotional wrath from parents and children alike as false domestic violence rages as the new trend in family court cases, while real violence and emotional distress issues are routinely ignored and dismissed by both experts and family courts. Experts are also improperly making mental diagnosis to justify taking of children and property, calling one party ( not the one paying tier fees) ; crazy or mentally ill. An issue flooding the California Board of Psychology.
The investigation shows that court clerks may be assisting family law misconduct by assuring ex parte orders and other files are “lost “ or “altered “ in a manner that serves to be retaliatory in nature.
Watchdogs like the Board of Psychology, Board of Accountancy and State Bar are forefront in the investigation, and investigators who have privately audited these files have been asked to turn materials over to the FBI and IRS.
Key players now subject to federal investigations appear to be:

The Los Angeles Times has reported that official steps have been taken to recall Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly for the 10 year sentence Kelly gave a child molester, while ignoring the 25 year minimum.
Members from the Orange County Board of Supervisors had tried in April 2017 to get Kelly to resign, due to the public and political climate similar to that surrounding Judge Arron Persky during his sentencing of Stanford Rapists Brock Turner. A recall effort is underway against Judge Persky as well.
Orange County and Santa Clara County Judges have been openly accused of misusing the legal system in managing divorce and criminal cases, where counties have a monopoly. Complaints, ignored by state watchdogs have reached epidemic levels as parents are demanding protection of their children and as courts appear to be funding court budget deficits with middle class divorce cases.
County leaders have finally come to realize they have been rendered helpless when trying to deal with bad judges in their community legal systems. Orange County and Santa Clara County have been especially plagued with more than an appearance of corruption that includes local law enforcement and nefarious connections to DA offices that are in utter turmoil.
The media and the public, that had been largely asleep as courts took over communities, and slowly allowed bad judges, cronyism , financial misconduct and political corruption to seep into the two wealthiest counties in Northern and Southern California.
In Santa Clara County, a strong link has been made to judges Arron Persky, Vincent Chiarello and James Towery. These judges consistently rule in favor of wealthy white men in criminal and divorce cases and use bailiffs and court staff in a manner that obstructs justice and violates federal law. After years of complaints the county is reportedly under FBI and media investigations, similar to investigations that exposed Orange County judge crimes that caused the state to provide amnesty for traffic court cases. Orange County's DA's office is also under constant investigation, and Santa Clara County id coming in a close second after anonymous sources have leaked information to the media, related to prosecutorial misconduct.
Both OC and Santa Clara are being exposed in large part by divorce and probate litigants who are fed up with children being trafficked in custody cases and seniors being robbed of their lifetime savings in probate cases.
Not surprisingly the LA times broke the story on the Orange County Judge recall just two days after investigative reporters made media requests for one of the county's divorce cases, that is set for hearing on July 20th. The reporters are apparently investigating private judges, misuse of domestic violence, supervised visitation , attorney misconduct and reunification camps,
NCAAP wants an Apology-Family Court Victims Want More!
ABC Bay Area News with Dan Noyes investigated insensitive photos taken at a Halloween party and posted by the Judicial Council staff. A spokesperson for the JC is reported to have said the photos showed a "lack of sensitivity" on the part of court staff, who are paid with public funds to assure fair access to justice,
A "spokesperson" for Chief Justice Tani Cantil Sakayuke appears to have reported all that will happen is the photos will be taken down from the Judicial Council website , and the employees will have to take a "class". Such classes are a joke, and is usually taught by some crook just getting more public money while the justice system claims it is going broke,
In private industry these employees would be fired. So why are public funds being used to pay employees to mock our legal system and engage in conduct that is nothing short of grounds for immediate termination ?
Did the public pay for these photos? For the party? Were these the court employees family court victims claim have lost their legal paperwork, or refused to investigate bad judges? Is this the same court staff preparing documents to show California's law makers the courts need more money?
The NCAAP is demanding an apology. Q is demanding more!
Q researchers are investigating more court records and public records, an area where mainstream media has refused to go for the past 50 years.
In December 2016 - Q's undercover photographers and reporters caught judges and lawyers at a Santa Clara County Bar Association holiday luncheon on video. The video shows that during the luncheon lawyers, judges and clerks sang about all the money they steal from family court litigants, over 60% who can not afford lawyers to represent them in a divorce case.
To add insult to injury, the lunch was organized by Judge James Towery, an unethical coward who routinely violates the rights of women and children, and who consistently demonstrates bias as he presides over divorce and custody cases in Santa Clara County .
So welcome Dan Noyes, we are thrilled to have you , though you are a tad late to the party!
We demand more than an "ethics " course..
Consequences of Altered Family Court Transcripts
After years of parents being called "crazy " and "disgruntled" for claiming transcripts in custody and divorce cases have been altered, an underground sting has revealed that crazy parents deprived of their children and property may very well be on to something.
For the past five years litigants in Sacramento, Santa Clara, Contra Costa and Orange County have been secretly recording hearings and comparing them with the actual transcripts in their case. Word by word these recordings are being compared to the transcripts that serve as the permanent historical record of a court proceeding.
The worst abuse appears to occur in private attorney offices where depositions, or hearings involving a 638 or 639 private judge, referee , Special Master is involved.
Some counties employ court reporters as a matter of routine, others including Sacramento and Santa Cruz do not. This can have a great impact on an appeal. No court record, no appeal, that is likely to work,
Initial research shows that court reporters regularly employed in family court cases appear willing to alter and change transcripts which may have serious implications for court orders and appeals. These court reporters, often women, appear to be willing to change transcripts at the private request of a judge, or at the request of a seasoned lawyer who brings in steady business, for which court reporters are able to earn additional income.
Santa Clara County Court insiders, fed up with fancy court houses and high pay to court reporters, are reporting that a few court reporters regularly assigned to family court cases have been engaging in tax fraud, and assisting judges and lawyers in altering transcripts for a steady flow of income, as court clerks face furlough and pay freezes.
Court management is worried as records request related to the court reporters have also been reportedly delayed , buried or altered to prevent mainstream media from exposing mass corruption that impacts legal outcomes and court budgets.

Sonoma, Santa Clara, Monterey, Contra Costa, Sacramento & Orange Counties INVESTIGATED
What started out as an media investigation of California's family courts, has turned into an investigation that may criminally involve county and public employees, police departments and DA offices up and down the state. Lawyers linked to family law cases appear to be engaged in confidential relationships that are established to convert community money and child support to reunification counselors, supervised visitation services , non- profits and custody experts who are practicing with out valid licenses.
Caught in the cross fire is the state's judicial oversight bodies and watchdogs, agencies that are known to have been ignoring consumer complaints for decades.
At stake are big careers, and big money woven through the state's Attorney General Office, the FBI and political and judicial careers that have traditionally enjoyed immunity and indemnification.
Family law lawyers using domestic violence as a litigation tactic and financial incentive to prevent clients from paying child and spousal support are now getting a closer look, and RICO complaints not investigated since Operation Greylord are threating the counties up and down the state.
Reports indicate FBI insiders may also be misusing family courts in their own divorce cases and a media investigation may put the FBI back in the public spotlight as it tries to uncover from the scrutiny it faced over the recent Presidential Election , and claims from both the Trump and Clinton camps.
Members of Q are providing information to investigative and adversarial journalists who are determined to bring to the public attention the serious threats coming from inside California's legal system.

Judges Cut Deal with Silicon Valley Billionaires to Save Santa Clara County Family Courts from Bankruptcy
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Slams PayPal Founder Peter Thiel for Funding Lawsuit & Supports First Amendment
Are Silicon Valley Billionaires Too Cozy with California Judges?
Following in the footsteps of PayPal founder Peter Thiel, who funded Hulk Hogan's lawsuit against Gawker Magazine, Silicon Valley's newest billionaires appear to be using their money and power to buy the state's judiciary, Middle class families in Silicon Valley may be caught in the cross fire as a result.
Silicon Valley insiders report that it is now commonplace for billionaires in the Valley to invest in litigation funds that support lawyers, judges and experts who can cook books, or recommend custody in divorce cases, or swing a star struck jury to get the best outcome in a patent infringement case. Even domestic violence appears to be up for grabs as Silicon Valley billionaire Clyde Berg was able to pay a legal team to convince a Silicon Valley jury that beating his pregnant wife was not a problem.
Google , Apple, Netflix, PayPal and yes, even Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg appears to be connected to judges like family court judge James Towery and a number of judges in the Sixth District. But the reach appears to go all the way up to the Ninth Circuit, giving an appearance that California's legal system is up for sale to the richest tech or social media billionaire in Silicon Valley .
Most alarming is that top executives and shareholders at Apple, Google, Netflix, PayPal and EBay, as well as Silicon Valley venture capital firms are betting on Silicon Valley divorces by paying off and offering sweetheart settlements, that ultimately serve to rig the courts in the county's most high profile divorce cases.
Other pathways for judge corruption stems from the use of private arbitration and mediation , where court appointments of receivers and 730 experts are a matter of routine. A recent study in UC Hastings found that most of these firms are not even legally operated.
Huge financial incentives for Silicon Valley Judges
Days after the San Jose Mercury's Tracy Kaplan got the county's presiding judge, Patricia Lucas, to admit a shiny new $283,000,000 family law courthouse is financially unsustainable, a group of anonymous hackers and technology activists uncovered grave conflicts in the county's judiciary that not only leaves a MORAL STAIN on Santa Clara County, it raises questions as to the financial interest many judges and lawyers have in the outcome of the average divorce case, where no jury can influence an outcome.
Leaked documents, and data files indicate that the county has been concealing sheer bankruptcy for months , as they cut the most essential court staff and services. The leaked information proves that as Silicon Valley courts are plainly bankrupt, and have been rigging cases and fixing verdicts to benefit Silicon Valley titans for years.
Anonymous sources found court CEO David Yamasaki is reported to have worked with court PIO Joe Macalusco in assisting in the misuse of state and federal funds where Domestic Violence and Child Support issues are of concern. Further, in the building of the new Family Justice Center, court clerks reported , off the record, that Yamasaki used contractors and landscapers to steal palm trees and improve the his own residence with materials paid for by the Judicial Council and Santa Clara County tax payers.
Court reporters also appear to be in on the action. As the county slashes the budget for court reporters, claiming they have no money, a five year investigation indicates that a handful of court reporters, acting as employees for the court, were additionally allowed to make millions in cash from divorce cases where certain lawyers including Bradford Baugh, Nat Hales, Walter Hammon, Nicole Ford, Heather Smith, Valerie Houghton (criminally indicted), Mia Mosher , Heather Allan , Elise Mitchell, Matt Erickson, Richard Roggia, Lynne Yates Carter, , Danielle Morgan and James McManis appeared to be able to delay transcript deliveries to the other side, and influence appeals, tossing other lawyers and pro per litigants out of justice in their divorce cases.
A deep investigation shows these lawyers not only influenced judges against pro per litigants, they worked with court reporters to change transcripts that impacted appeals and outcomes in most of Silicon Valley's most affluent divorce cases, benefiting the billionaires and millionaires like David Cheriton , Steve Wozniak, Oliver Garbe , Evan Brooks, Don Woodward, Lisa and Larry Pott, Sheila Pott and real estate titan Thomas Lynch. Former NFL stars like Ray McDonald and marijuana big wigs like Rooney who appear to be benefiting from the money being thrown to judges and most elite divorce law firms, where Kids for Cash is a matter of routine business in Silicon Valley's divorce and custody cases.
730 experts and private judges appear to be in on the financial game as well. The investigation shows that private law firms are being used to convince unsuspecting spouses to keep messy divorce details out of the public spotlight, giving lawyers and private4 mediators and judges immunity to engage in RICO like conduct with Silicon Valley real estate, children and businesses. Financial investigations show these private judges are making millions on fraudulent real estate liens and business property transfers they can cash in on in their personal retirement, none of which is lawfully disclosed to litigants. And where divorce outcomes, and private tech settlements are RIGGED, with immunity and stipulated agreements entered into by the unsuspecting underdog litigant.
Much like the now famous case involving Hulk Hogan and Gawker magazine, financial records indicate that many Silicon Valley VC firms are banking on Silicon Valley divorces and legal settlements, where public judges are reportedly awarding fees and appointments as part of a complex scheme to rob Silicon Valley businesses and properties engaged in divorce and probate cases.
Perhaps the most morally deficient fact is that Silicon Valley family courts appear to be being funded by Silicon Valley titans, where the end result is the legal kidnapping of children and the theft of family homes and childhoods, all because their parents' divorce took place in California's excessively wealthy and powerful Silicon Valley.
FBI Confirms Public Corruption Task Force: Court Reporters, DA Offices and Judges from Family and Criminal Courts Caught in Cross Fire
The FBI has confirmed it is investigating Orange County for Public Corruption. Santa Clara, Sacramento and Contra Costa Counties appear to be up next as overtaxed federal agencies move to investigate misconduct systemically woven into county DA offices and family courts across the state of California.
Mainstream media has been asleep at the wheel on local corruption issues as news papers and television stations are gobbled up and consumed with covering news out of Washington. When local press fails to provide transparency at a local level, corruption in our communities flourishes.
Investigative reporters and private citizens have recently launched a Private Attorney General attack and undercover investigation in select counties. Anonymous Blogs, Emails and "Fake News" , that have been routinely dismissed by courts and law enforcement for decades, have successfully organized thousands of private citizens with plans to launch a campaign to; flood watchdog agencies with complaints, the state courts with appeals and federal courts with unprecedented federal filings. The FBI and IRS are reported to be using many sites such as these to guide probes and investigations.
As newspapers like the San Jose Mercury and San Francisco Chronicle have ignored public corruption in the state's DA's offices and family courts, other news organizations like the Orange County Register have worked diligently to expose corruption. This pressure has led to federal probes that has brought the IRS and FBI to the doorstep of counties where RICO like corruption entangles police departments, DA offices, judges, court reporters and even court clerks in communities up and down the state.
Counties are long overdue for FBI and IRS investigations like Operation Greylord, which set the standard for federal investigations like the one now CONFIRMED to being conducted in Orange County.
While Orange County DA Tony Rackauckas appears to be as corrupt as they come, Jeff Rosen and Mark Peterson are tied for a close second, as the FBI and IRS are now reportedly turning to Northern California after years of complaints have been lodged by private citizens trapped in Contra Costa and Santa Clara County divorce and probate cases.
Advocates, citizen journalists, public records experts, underground press and anonymous sources have been probing into family courts in active investigations for the past five years. Family Courts serve to provide a legal landscape for police and judges to collude with family law attorneys , custody experts , CPAs and psychologists. These collusion leads to funding of lavish lifestyles for a select few, and at the expense of children and their future.
Court records show abuse around manufactured claims of domestic violence and parental alienation, where wealthy child abusers and crooks can manipulate the legal system to decimate a parent or child who tries to expose fraud , child abuse or pedophilia.
Twenty years of court files and complaints made to California's Consumer Affair Watchdogs including the State Bar, Board of Realtors, CPS, Board of Accounting, Board of Psychologists, and Board of Court Reporters have contributed to providing stunning revelations. Insiders are reporting how employees of these agencies assisted a corrupt system by failing to properly perform investigations, shredding complaints and claiming budgetary restraints.
Orange County Corruption- Investigations began back in 2014 after investigative reporters and civil rights lawyers looked into the traffic court scandal. The Orange County Register reporting on these issues has contributed to the successful federal investigations and arrests of some of the most corrupt governmental employees in the state.
Contra Costa County- Probes revealed a DA entangled with political contribution scandals that led to the recent felony conviction of Mark Peterson. Vigilant reporting by reporters from the East Bay Times has served to protect Contra Costa County residents by brining attention to Peterson's office from the state's Attorney General . Peterson has a long history of covering up corruption that arising from Judge Mills, who acts as the hanging judge for the county bench where Mills openly engages in retaliation against family law victims who try to expose the county corruption.
Santa Clara County - Reporters from the Mercury News have been hit with massive financial cutbacks , combined with poor reporting leadership the county has suffered from a press group acting more to protect the DA and local judges than to shine a light of transparency on them. This has has allowed the county to become fraught with corruption. Public outrage over Judge Persky's sentencing of Brock Turner and Judge Towery's handling of domestic violence victims like Neha Rastogi and Kendra Scott have left many wondering why reporters like Tracy Kaplan have given judges and elected officials like Jeff Rosen a free pass. The county is also home to the high profile cyberbullying case that led to the suicide of Audrie Pott, opening a probe on the DA's doorstep where RICO charges including family lawyer Walter Hammon will reveal far more than a teen suide and Netflix movie, where Audrie Potts' mother Sheila Pott continues to profit from her daughters death. Other high-profile cases involving the death of Alycia Mesitti- Allen show a pattern and practice with family court judges and local "experts" that indicates the county has been allowing children to be SOLD to the highest bidder in custody and divorce cases. The probe has widened and appears to now include the law offices of Bradford Baugh, Heather Allan, Nat Hales, James Cox, Richard Roggia, James McManis and the CPA firm of Michael Thompson and James Butea. Appeal and Family Law Specialist, Garrett Dailey is reportedly linked to RICO like conduct where Silicon Valley divorces are the crown jewel of the RICO treasure chest. Dailey appears to have the highest number of family law appeals in the Sixth District, the appeal court for Silicon Valley's wealthiest communities.
Sacramento County- Known as the home of California's Chief Justice has seen the corruption being ignored for the past 10 years. The state's highest judge appears to now being scrutinized for her role in the corruption scandal, which could may dash any future political plans Tani Cantil Sakauye may have had prior to the state's judicial branch imploding. Sakauye is reported to have known about wide spread corruption at the State Bar , after being privy to a secret report , which she failed to share with state legislators, as she begged for more money to fund a broken court system that refuses to discipline, judges and lawyers. A culture created by Tani Cantil- Sakayue and her unscrupulous mentors , including the Judge informally known as King George.
Family law lawyers who have ignored or tolerated misconduct for years are drawing scrutiny as the Internal Revenue Service begins to zero in on " court fees" and payments to "experts" and court reporters for transcripts that are routinely used in divorce and probate cases.
Private judge assignments, 730 court appointments and payments for transcripts to court reporters are being reviewed through anonymous complaints and media investigations as part of an ongoing corruption investigation in Sacramento, Contra Costa and Santa Clara Counties.
Members of Jane and John Q Public, as well as the brave reporters investigating California's Family Courts are pointing the FBI , IRS and others to conduct district attorneys and the state's Attorney General have ignored for decades.
The lawsuit battle between the state auditor, and the Commission on Judicial Performance continues to rage on as the state's judiciary seeks to prevent transparency that would reveal judges sitting at the center of much of the family law corruption.
Investigators continue to audit case files and conduct interviews that will be turned over to the FBI. Silicon Valley and Southern California court files of cases where

JaneandJohnQPublic.com continues to take anonymous tips and information to fuel the investigating of corruption impacting innocent men, women and children trapped in family law cases throughout the state of California. which is finally being used to point investigators in the right direction.
Santa Clara County Superior Court Presiding Judge Patricia Lucas
Caught in Local Bars as Stripper Club Scandals Rock Family Courts
Judge Lucas makes no apologies for cavorting with family law judges and lawyers in local bars and strip clubs, as judges award millions in fees during Silicon Valley divorces.. An accepted culture that seems to reach from Silicon Valley's Contra Costa and Santa Clara County to Orange County.
Citizen Journalists have been combing through court files and interviewing neighbors of family court judges, lawyers and custody experts for two years. Their findings are shocking.
Documents obtained by everyday citizens show that Santa Clara County's family courts have no trouble awarding millions in fees to lawyers and " experts" who assist in while collar and violent crimes including; fraud, parental alienation, child abuse, pedophilia, and false domestic violence claims.
At the same time Contra Costa County DA Mark Peterson reportedly used his crony judge and attorney connections to slip out of 13 felony charges brought on as a result of community outrage.
Private files and court records show that the top earners in family courts may be engaging in Racketeering and RICO like crimes that reach far beyond what Mark Peterson got nailed for. Mail and tax fraud are also being investigated, where big firms including those connected to James McManis, Walter Hammon, Nat Hales , James Cox . Brad Baugh, Heather Allan and Richard Roggia are involved.
" The lawyers and judges have gotten too greedy ". cited one family court clerk who sees hundreds of millions of dollars pass through the court by way of fee awards.
" Judges are routinely awarding $100,000 in sanctions to only select lawyers. These fees are typically paid by women and men who could never earn that money in a lifetime." And the money is cycling back to the judges in their investments and real estate holdings as the court claims it doesn't have enough money to pay us a living Silicon Valley wage. "
Court files show that as far back as 1998 attorney Nat Hales made $1,900,000 representing the wealthy land developer who developed Shoreline and the Google complex. Hales' former business associate is reportedly helping Hales engage in financial misconduct for her own personal gain , and his own daughter appears to be involved as well, while claiming to represent and consult with the valley's top tech firms. Insiders report Silicon Valley CEOs are not happy with the attention unscrupulous family law lawyers are bringing to Silicon Valley's judiciary.
Attorney Walter Hammon has made millions representing drug dealers and child abusers against poor and disabled spouses. Insiders report the State Bar refuses to investigate Hammon due to his son's involvement as State Bar President.
Attorney Brad Baugh, editor of the Santa Clara County Family Law Newsletter, has made hundreds of millions in cases where he has illegally and unethically obtained real estate liens , which a former business associate reports is part of his " master retirement plan".
Baugh has been the subject of multiple State Bar complaints, and allegations where James Towery reportedly assisted Baugh in avoiding discipline. . A six page Bar complaint was lodged against Baugh, showing he used the family courts to assist a divorcing man escape child abuse charges related to children involved in Los Gatos Boy Scouts and Little League groups.
Complaints to the county supervising judges Julie Emede and Patty Lucas have been ignored. Complaints to the State Bar appear to be being tampered with by Bar employees with strong alliances to their former boss, James Towery.
Court files show Towery may be the greatest menace on the bench. Towery has :
Real abuse and criminal activity is being ignored as false crimes are being manufactured in Silicon Valley divorce court and real crimes are bring ignored by Silicon Valley DA and police departments.
Members of Anonymous have scrubbed the electronic data of the Santa Clara Sacramento, Contra Costa and Orange County Courts and found improper governmental activity is known and running rampant , which appears to be creating a financial nightmare about to hit tax payers square in the face.
David Yamasaki, Santa Clara court's former CEO appears to have embezzled and misappropriated millions while building the new family courthouse in San Jose , just before he ran off to Orange County Orange County embroiled in the former traffic court scandal, is on the verge of being the next court scandal where court reporters and CPS workers will cost the county billons. Meanwhile the Orange County DA;s office misconduct and corruption has brought FBI, IRS and other government enforcement agencies to their offices.
SPOILER ALERT : Commissioner Weinberg may soon join the indictment list with his court reporter buddies at Veritext.
Contra Costa County DA Mark Peterson has just fled that county as DA , after the state's Attorney General let Peterson slip the noose on 13 felony counts, all arising from public pressure and complaints.
Santa Clara County DA Rosen may be the next to fall. Citizen reporters have found that Rosen has known his staff is engaging in misconduct that includes sexual harassment and abuse, using WhatsApp and Signal to avoid detection.
Most embarrassing for Rosen, is that a month after dropping rape and other charges against former 49er Ray Mc Donald, SWAT reportedly kicked in the door of McDonald's home in the 2400 block of Booksin Avenue in Willow Glen. Neighbors of that community have reportedly filed declarations and been speaking with reporters about the continued menace Ray Mc Donald poses for neighbors and school children in the area.
Feeling pressure from the community Judge Towery, an admitted 49er fan and husband of a former prosecutor who brought Rosen to Santa Clara, has reportedly ceased Mc Donald's visitation with a 2 year old child, having refused to do so for over six months as the child's mother continued to assert Mc Donald posed a danger to her, the child and the Silicon Valley community . Towery may have rape on his gavel now for the poor rulings and management of Mc Donald's custody case.
Fathers who have been denied access to their children during silicon Valley divorces are outraged that Mc Donald would continue to have visitation, when innocent fathers like Michael Lazarin have been denied their children for nothing other than court constructed legal abuse. This week mothers and fathers alienated from their children during California divorce and custody matters will host a rally in Sacramento to bring law makers attention to these issues. Michael Lazarin along with those from Erasing Family will host an event in July.
The families of the boys Rosen's office pursued following the suicide of Audrie Pott are reported to support Lazarin. The families were not available for comment in time for this post.,
Silicon Valley money is clearly fueling legal abuse and violent crime. Activists, researchers and now mainstream media appear anxious to shine a bright light on what is really going on in family courts.
SWAT Reportedly Called to Home of former 49er RAY McDONALD for new RAPE allegations
Middle class moms and dads are being jailed under California's Domestic Violence Protection Act for “disturbing the peace “ of another parent with Facebook and online postings, as true abusers like former 49er Ray Mc Donald continue to abuse and impose harm in communities where they pay fancy lawyers to get them out of DV and violent abuse, and rape charges.
Mc Donald has been enjoying five years of freedom, despite multiple DUI arrests , police documented domestic violence and raping of women he picks up in local bars during alcoholic binges. On his last rape charges, where he was indicted back in 2015 by a Santa Clara Grand Jury, Mc Donald reportedly paid $100,000 to make the civil rape charges "go away" this past April. Shortly thereafter Santa Clara County DA Jeff Rosen's office dropped the criminal rape case. Insiders report Rosen could not get a conviction based on San Jose PD botching investigation after investigation where big money and celebrity offenders are concerned.
Two weeks after the Jeff Rosen’s office was trying to sweep Mc Donald’s 2015 EPRO violation into a quite dismissal, Mc Donald’s Willow Glen home was reportedly surrounded by SWAT as allegations of yet another rape case appear to be emerging once gain in Silicon Valley. This time locals report Mc Donald opted for a stripper from the Brass Rail, as he knew her credibility and his celebrity would get him off the hook. Meanwhile, because neither the Santa Clara County courts, or DA continued to subject Mc Donald to a DVRO , which are dished out for far less on a daily basis, M Donald may have been holding firearms in a rented house directly across from a San Jose school in the upscale Willow Glen Community.
Ray Mc Donald is a menace to the public, not a public hero, yet he continues to get a free pass based on Silicon Valley’s 49er sports culture and a celebrity status Mc Donald continues to enjoy with Santa Clara County Judges and law enforcement agencies.
Santa Clara County’s Family Court Involvement in Violence Against Women and Children
While ducking and dodging rape , DV and DUI charges for the past 5 years, Santa Clara County’s family court judges, infamous for judges like Arron Persky, have McDonald has spent millions on defense lawyers, custody lawyers and settlement agreements, to make sure Judge James Towery would allow McDonald’s mandatory alcohol testing and prior DVRO to slip off into deep pit of legal corruption that plagues the Santa Clara Community.
Judge Towery has allowed McDonald to move to unsupervised and frequent visits with his two year old son, and Towery has repeatedly ignored the child's mother's request to reinstate mandatory alcohol testing Mc Donald was under back in 2016.
In James Towery’s family court, poor or self-represented litigants don’t get the same celebrity treatment that Towery, an admitted 49er fan , gives McDonald. In case after case, Judge James Towery appears to subject mothers and innocent fathers to supervised visits or supposal support termination where non- violent DV claims are alleged. Mothers who have fought for custody or support, and fathers who have filed to legally stop move away orders get decaled vexatious, subjected to DVROs themselves as litigants like McDonald pay lawyers in Towery’s favor to get away with fraud and violent abuse.
Confidential files leaked to the press show that Santa Clara County’s family court supervising Judge Emede signed orders giving McDonald increased visitation, as McDonald spent millions on lawyers to continue to buy his way out of criminal conduct. All this occurred as the child’s mother was underrepresented by Legal Aid and unethical lawyers like Heather Smith, whom the State Bar never investigated or disciplined.
Judge James Towery's former connection to California's State Bar, and the role that connection has to allowing abuse in family law matters is now facing heightened scrutiny.
In December 2016 online media groups attempted to cover McDonald’s custody case in Santa Clara County. After those requests were made, James Towery appears to have worked in concert with Mc Donald’s big mouthed bullying custody lawyer, Elise Mitchell, to have the court room closed. Ray Mc Donald, an undisputed public figure, clearly was able to buy off Judge Towery to conceal his conduct from public during his custody matter where his violent history and alcohol abuse were matters at hand.
James Towery, an admitted 49er fan, is not unlike the San Jose Police members , or the Santa Clara County Sheriffs, who have treated Mc Donald as a God , giving him a free pass to beat, harass and rape the women of Santa Clara County. The Santa Clara County District Attorney and police have unclean hands as well , as the DA’s office and law enforcement continue to botch investigations related to DV and rape. This misconduct is reportedly the reason SWAT is being called in to take over on yet another rape allegation involving former 49er Ray Mc Donald.
Women politicians, leaders and activists are fed up. Nearly one year after Brock Turner allowed to serve only 6 months in jail for the rape of a woman on the Stanford University campus, and just months after CEO Abhishek was allowed to stay in the country and face only 30 days in jail for abusing his wife, another rape charge against violent abuser Ray Mc Donald is calling for federal investigations of Silicon Valley misuse of domestic violence cases in California's family courts.
Insiders report that California's newly elected Attorney General is overwhelmed in dealing with non- violent DV issues clogging the courts and state registries , all arising from family law cases. At the same time it appears Silicon Valley communities are using DV grants and funding to cover their budge shortfalls by harshly prosecuting non- violent , dads , moms teachers and upstanding community members, while letting violent abusers like Mc Donald and Gattani off the hook.
An investigation into Santa Clara County’s misuse of funds intended to protect citizens from violent crime is underway by citizen journalists and an underground media group, due to a lack of interest from mainstream media.
Rats Bail from CJP as Santa Clara County DA buries misconduct by DA's Office in Criminal Sex Abuse of Child
Henley Shreds Files Buries Evidence Prior to Audit in Battle with State Auditor Elaine Howle
SAN FRANCISCO, CA- Henley resigns as Jeff Rosen scrambles to cover up prosecutorial and police misconduct in rape and domestic violence cases.
Members of Anonymous and Court Corruption Whistleblowers tipped off Q before other members of the press as Director Victoria Henley was pressured to resign. Court "Higher Ups" need a fall guy , or in this case , fall gal, in advance of audit that insiders say is impossible to stop.
On the same day Henely was "forced out" Santa Clara County DA Jeff Rosen was investigating his own office for misconduct that dates back to child abuse and rape cases Rosen has used for political gain since 2012 . The Contra Costa DA's office is embroiled in similar issues with DA Mark Petersen and California's Attorney General is considering taking on civil action which may expose that county's prosecutors to more corruption investigations. The victim are the ones who lose in this political game.
Santa Clara County's legal community has reached a tipping point as over 25 divorce cases involving cetian judges and lawyers have been actively under press and citizen investigations for over three years.
Seems " disgruntled" family law litigants, known as "the minions", "Q" and #TeamCA and vexatious litigants have uncovered misuse of public funds in California's courts that could cost the state billions in lost federal funding. Funding Santa Clara County is already fighting to keep based on the Trump's Admisntrative policies related to immigration. Q began reporting on this issue back in May 2016, See the post , which has outstripped all other online news.
Santa Clara Family Courts may bankrupt the state's legal system, all while Henley failed to investigate complaints against Santa Clara County Judges Mary Ann Grilli and James Towery as well as Contra Costa County Judge Mills. Presiding judges Erica Yew, and Rise Jones Pichon and Fannin sat as the Chairpersons of the Commission of Judicial Performance, CJP. A recent flood of complaints against presiding judges Lucas, and Fannin are also raising eyebrows as more misuse of public funds and violations of Due Process bubble up.
Henley is reported to know where the bodies are buried, knowledge that is helping hold California's highest ranking law makers, judges and lawyers hostage. Henley was able to negotiate her retirement would not officially take place for another six months. Court insiders report that Henley's retirement is necessary as the state audit of the CJP , still being blocked by Henley and a team of lawyers, would reveal that Santa Clara County , along with other counties, has misused public funds and caused more state and federal lawsuits connected to family court abuse. Judge Mary Ann Grilli, was forced into retirement early in 2017, insiders say due to her role in violating federal support and ADA laws in the cases before her. As records come forward Santa Clara, along with San Francisco, are fighting the Trump Administration's mandate on immigration, so that the county can maintain federal fund of over $1,7 billion.
Court insiders report that Henley could face criminal charges for obstructing justice and violating federal law, but has so much evidence on how she buried complaints made against judges during her tenure of 26 year, that Henley was able to get a "silence package" that included a retirement deal (charged to tax payers), to write her own PR and communications to maintain a "positive image" and to be able to stay until the end of the year, where she will hide files and bury information so that Elaine Howle , the State Auditor, will not be able to find it.
SANTA CLARA, CA- Insiders report that the primary information Henley promises to hide involves Contra Costa and Santa Clara County Family Courts. The building of a new Family Courthouse in downtown San Jose shows misuse of funds that could cost the state millions in lost federal funding, There are also over 50,000 child support cases where Santa Clara Family Courts failed to follow federally mandated laws and routinely violated the Due Process rights of litigants, and children in the county's divorce, probate and custody cases.
The recent departures of PIO officer Joe Macaluso , and Court CEO Yamasaki are also being investigated related to criminal RICO charges, after Jeff Rosen's after Public Integrity Officer John Chase failed to investigate multiple family court cases brought to from residents about probate and divorce cases. Santa Clara County criminal prosecutors are being looked at for misconduct themselves, after reports indicate lawyers in the DA's office engaged in misconduct while prosecuting Ray Mc Donald for Domestic Violence and o0ther cases involving sexual assault of children.
Rosen is reported to be trying to 'handle " the case ( AKA cover up and conceal evidence of misconduct), It appears former DA cronies Kayrn Sinunu- Towery and Judge James Towery can no longer protect Rosen and the Santa Clara County DA's office, which has let child abusers and child endangerment criminals like Michael Maldonado, Ray Mc Donald and the father of Alycia Mesiti Allen pay to get away sexual abuse and murder of children in the affluent Silicon Valley.
Whistleblowers report that Rosen's office failed to investigate employee misconduct of Judge Chiarello that resulted in Alycia Mesiti's death as far back as 2009, and after Chiarello awarded the father custody, despite his abusive record , allowing the father to kill his own daughter. The mother tried to bring abuse forward and was denied legal fees and representation to fight for her daughter's safety. Chiarello has replaced Judge Persky in criminal court, where he appears to continue to rule in divorce cases and show bias toward the wives and women in the press.
Santa Clara County courts and law enforcement also have evidence that lawyer Brad Baugh has used litigation tactics in divorce cases to cover up child abuse and molesting of children for years. . Brad Baugh actually obtained a restraining order against a woman he formerly represented as a child in her divorce, adding protection that extends to the Los Gatos Boys Scouts and Little League.
As Silicon Valley victims like Kendra Scott and Neha Rastogi fail to be protected , countless other women have lost property and custody while trying to speak up and protect their children from sex abuse during divorce or custody cases.
The county leads the nation in false DVROs that are issued for something as loose as throwing a cell phone or breaking a window and many appear to be connected to the affluent Los Gatos community where the Los Gatos police have a nefarious history with the Santa Clara County judiciary.
Insiders report that when they tried to view the court file, or obtain help for the mother of Alycia Mesiti, that the court's "higher ups" removed and altered the court file, and retaliated against members of the press and lawyers who questioned or investigated court corruption that was implicated in the child's rape and death.
For the past 20 years Silicon Valley has skyrocketed to the global stage for their role in advancing technology , communications and information , yet the area's court systems and law enforcement remain in the Stone Age, failing to protect women, children and the most vulnerable citizens based on the age old game of Power, Greed and Corruption.
Santa Clara Vexatious Litigants on List Even in Death
Wylmina Hettinga was declared vexatious by Santa Clara County Judge Mary Ann Grilli who retired earlier this year under allegations she had suffered from dementia and drug addiction for about as long as Ms. Hettinga was in her court. Nearly 10 years. . Wylimina fought to have equal time with her children and her fair share of the community real property , which was transferred entirely to her former husband, as he got full custody of her two youngest children as well. Not only was Wylimina denied a fair hearing before Grilli , she was denied her half of a community estate and equal time and rights to her children. Because of her battle, Wylimina advocated for changes in the law, trying to allow parents the right to a jury trial for custody matters, rather than facing retaliation of biased and incompetent family law judges, who abound in Santa Clara County.
SANTA CLARA, CA: California is only one of 9 states to have a law on the books restricting the right to access America's courts., it is know as the Vexatious Litigant Statue and can only apply to self- represented parties.
The vexatious litigant statute requires the state to publish a list sounding a shot across the judiciary that a person is so litigious, they should be kept from freely filing a lawsuit without first obtaining permission. VLs as they are referred to are required to at least file a prefilling motion and many to post a bond up to $100,000 , a financial impossibility for most.
In reality the VL statue denies American citizens access to the courts.
Since 2009 an alarming number of citizens have been declared vexatious based on their divorce and custody cases. In Santa Clara County alone the number of people declared VL arising from a divorce or custody case has risen sharply , largely due to litigation tactics of unscrupulous lawyers who informally advertise an anility to get another party declared VL during a complex divorce or custody matter. It effectively shuts done one party and locks them out of the courts.
Santa Clara County also shows an alarming number of women being declared vexatious , while their white collar husbands hide assets and convert community property into unimaginable sanctions. One woman was sanctioned $595,000 as she protested that the lawyer in her case had committed fraud to assist her husband get out of paying child support, and the lawyer then became a Santa Clara County judge.
Another woman was sanctioned $200,000 for filing complaints with the State Bar and trying to expose fraud her husband and business partners engaged in during a five year divorce matter.
An immigrant woman from China who was denied discovery, an interpreter and her children was sanctioned over $300,000 , lost all of her houses , was imputed for $150,000 in income, and nearly jailed after Judge Grilli took her children from her, for no reason other than she tried to expose fraud her former husband and business partners engaged in.
Wylimina Hettinga recently provided comment to the Northern California Recorder to explain the injustice she fought when she was declared vexatious.
Aside from the injustice the VL statute causes in divorce and custody cases by prejudicing one side where the judge is concerned, a vexatious litigant designation impacts people outside of court as well. Many are reporting being on the VL list causes them to:be
In short, by publishing a name on the vexatious litigant list , courts are causing people to lose income, liberties and freedoms.
In Santa Clara County vexatious litigant and lawyer Patrick Missud died in a Milpitas jail . A public records request sent to Santa Clara County General Counsel Lisa Herrick confirmed Missud remains on the list even though the county knows he died in their jail !
In Southern California Michael Smith, a school teacher , has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the vexatious litigant statute as applied in his custody case,. Smith was declared vexatious and his wife was allowed to move away with his daughter and he was not even allowed to respond. Smith is required to post $100,000 bond if he wishes to file a lawsuit in California. a financial impossibility on his teacher salary.
Since 2016 an investigation into Santa Clara County's policies and practices show alarming trends that include:
1. The person declared vexatious was often the parent without access to community money during long drawn out divorce or custody cases.
2. Women are declared vexatious in family law cases are a rate that is 10 times the rate of men declared in family law cases, and often when they attempt to fight unjust , void or unlawful orders made related to their children and their homes.
3. Persons declared vexatious are often attempting to expose fraud and RICO like claims in family law cases that include lawyers, judges, custody experts , relators , CPAs, property appraisers and even CPS workers.
4. Bonds required of VLs range from $25,0000 to $100,000 and are being set in a manner to further deny access to the courts,
5. Records indicate only one person has been removed from the list and Santa Clara County Presiding Judges Lucas and Pichon have denied other requests while appearing to be incompetent in the law and while knowing the list is maintained with persons who are deceased.
A group of Silicon Valley leaders and experts are finalizing a report on the vexatious litigant list .
" Santa Clara County doesn't seem the least concerned that they put more people on the vexatious litigant list than any other county, and maintain that list knowing their are dead people on it. It is beyond injustice. The list is being used to shut up the people who are speaking up about what Santa Clara County Family Courts are doing to families, children, the poor and whistleblowers."
Social Media Ramps Up in Family Court - Immunity War for Judges, Lawyers, Custody Experts, CPAs and CPS Workers
Texas Judge Green is being investigated for drugs, sex and improper conduct involving her lovers and prostitutes. Witnesses against the judge include her ex husband, her former lovers and court whistleblowers, all fueling a social media war that has this Houston based judge in more than just hot water with the state's judicial discipline agency.
In California, a group calling themselves the "Silicon Valley Ex Club" have a similar plan for the bad judges and lawyers in Silicon Valley's family courts. Hundreds of men and women tired of the fraud, lying and excessive fees being charged in Silicon Valley divorces are armed with cameras, hidden recorders and Private Investigators, and all are dedicated to tracking the moves of lawyers, CPS workers and even CPAs who have been stealing money and children in Silicon Valley divorce cases for decades.
Scorned lovers have lose lips and the area known for creating technology is putting it to good use to fight the corrupt and desperately broken family court system. From spouses of government employees in Family Court Services, to ex spouses of crooked custody experts like Ken Permutter, the Ex Club is on a roll and committed to shedding light on what is really going on in California's Family Courts, which has been fueled and tolerated by a generation of bad judges.
Children are chiming in too, most fed up with what the court is allowing their lawyers to do during their parents divorce. Children who grew up with lawyers like Bradford Baugh, Nat Hales, Heather Allan , and Walter Hammon have had enough. They are launching a lawsuits against rotten CPS workers, and a social media war against the lawyers who profited off of making their childhoods miserable. .
Family Court lawyers , Judges , CPAs and CPS workers who were once comforted by immunity that appeared absolute, and are reported to be worried.
A 2017 Ninth Circuit Case chips away at presumed immunity , after social workers in Orange County were found guilty of violating the rights of BOTH parents and children. California's highest court said that even government workers who presumably have knowingly and maliciously violated the law, and engaged in malicious criminal behavior are NOT afforded qualified immunity , and no such immunity is qualified or justly appropriate. See the case here.
So what about lawyers who lie? For far too long they have relied on litigation privilege, a law that allows them to lie in court in order to provide a zealous representation of the parent they represent. Parents new to family court are initially outraged when they hear not only what a judge allows an ex spouse to say in court, but what their lawyer will often support, After years of fruitless litigation , where child support is unpaid, houses are sold and nothing is done, parents left with nothing have their anger fueled in a direction dedicated to reform family court abuse. Increased state and federal cases tell us lawyers in family law who have evaded the spotlight for some time, have reason to worry as immunity for government workers, and even judges is slowly chipped away.
Custody experts and supervisors , appointed by the court, also have reason to worry.
Parents and children are mad. Too much money and too much lost time with children has gone by. Many are banning together to host post card parties; sending postcards to law makers and businesses demanding reform of Silicon Valley's family courts. Others are turning to social media to connect with other victims and bypass bogus protective orders.
On May 11th, lawyer Stacey Stevens will ask a federal judge to dismiss her from a case involving woman warrior Tanya Nemcik , who has filed a federal lawsuit that includes Ms. Stevens, as well as Contra Costa and Santa Clara Counties, where Ms. Nemcik claims she was denied time with her children and charged excessive fees to visit her children, as she was sanctioned for support she was imputed to pay, as a result of a court gone wild.
Parents and kids are taking to social media where fake Facebook names, Twitter accounts and mems on photos are being used to show the evil and the ridiculous side of a modern day divorce. Videos of parents falling down in marijuana collectives or cheating on a spouse are cropping up like weeds across the internet, YELP and Facebook.
Photos taken by "EX Files Club" members also show lawyers drinking with Judges in Bars owned by lawyers like John Conway , stocked with booze from one of Silicon Valley's most corrupt family law lawyers; Rebekah Frye.
Paralegals, secretaries, court clerks and even court reporters appear to be cheering on a social media revolution by providing tips, photos and confidential information that is suddenly being leaked everywhere.
On April 28, 2017, a group of Silicon Valley whistleblowers fed up with how women like Kendra Scott and Nehad Rastogi had been treated by family courts after suffering from very public domestic violence cases, secretly recorded a recent Silicon Valley Bar Brown Bag luncheon , where lawyers Tracy Duell- Cazes and Lynne Yates Cater joined Judge James Towery and Judge Greenwood to teach crooked lawyers how to get more money out of Silicon Valley divorces, as they laughed the local DA Jeff Rosen would do nothing about perjury and crimes that effectively add up to RICO and Real Estate Fraud.
Santa Clara and Contra Costa County Courts appear to be working overtime to stop up the hemorrhaging. Presiding Judge Patricia Lucas, and General Counsel Lisa Herrick are reportedly working nights and Sundays investigating a flood of complaints and rouge employees who are feeding information to blogs and websites populated with insider secrets.
False protective orders, DVROs and other litigation tactics have been being used for decades, mostly to conceal fraud and to decimate one parents into silence. With few options many parents who have lost their children and their lifetime savings, social media offers a sort of out of court payback, The effort could prove very embarrassing for Silicon Valley's family law community that once enjoyed being off radar and a crony network that seemed impenetrable.
A payback that may finally attracting mainstream media to the crisis in California's Family Courts.
Post Card Parties Demand Family Court Change !
" From Walnut Creek to Los Gatos, parents who have been trapped in Silicon Valley family courts for the past two decades are coming together and demanding change from law makers and Silicon Valley business. .
" Divorce and Custody problems are still seen so much as a shameful life experience. Many people are forced into this dark scary place on their own, or with a highly paid lawyer who gobbles up your retirement, your house equity and even your child support by operating these law firms that are profiting off families and a broken court system where judges are no longer the upstanding members of communities that they used to be. " ,said one dad attending a recent Silicon Valley meeting.
" And I am willing to bet most people don't tell their families, their friends, their employers or business partners what is really going on in family courts. People are losing their children. their homes and their dignity, but more importantly they are losing their minds.", said one grandmother who was attending a meeting after watching her daughter and grandchildren suffer through a Santa Clara Family Court Divorce for the past two years.
Q Researchers have been investigating over 5,000 divorce and custody cases that have spanned the last three decades in Silicon Valley. The research suggests that in 90% of the cases, the parent not in control of the money during a divorce will most likely end up with only 20% of the communities actual value, and good parents can lose visitation with the own children completely as lawyers are paid to discredit parents with false domestic violence allegations, mental illness or simply being outright crazy .
Research also suggests that Silicon Valley divorces are costing as much as 2000% more as lawyers figure out how to use pricy real estate and hidden business assets to keep court conflicts going for years. In Silicon Valley , judges routinely award fees and sanctions to "in " law firms and lawyers , while legal aid lawyers , pro bono and small firms, or lawyers from out of the area get nothing .
Divorce litigation funding is also becoming big business,, Teams of law firms, custody experts, CPAs , realtors and investments firms appear to be funding law firms to get sanctions and fees out of community property they way they used to out of class action legal battles.
" No doubt about it. The SEC isn't regulating it and the lawyers and Bar Associations who write our laws are now betting on retirement, child support and home equity found only in Silicon Valley " said a divorce litigation fund operator who wished to remain anonymous. These guys have no qualms using homes and children in a rather nefarious manner, simply to make money.
" In fact just last week Judge James Towery and Judge Greenwood spoke at the Santa Clara Bar Association and taught lawyers how to draft fee awards that they would grant. The most disgusting thing was lawyers like Lynne Yates Cater and Matthew Rudy , with the help of two sitting judges laughed about how easy it is to get fees as sanctions using little known laws and fee requests , never intended for family lawyers. "
"Towery even admitted that Santa Clara never gives out FC2030 fees like Alameda and other counties, instead Santa Clara is known for driving one parent legally and financially into the ground, which in Towery's court is always the women and poor dads who didn't make it big in Silicon Valley, where Towery a shrived up and rapidly aging judge, has no use or need for."
The lawyers even made a HOW TO STEAL FEES FROM FAMILY LAW CASES, Click here to read their blue print to steal your money.
" Judge Greenwood, who also helped teach the class to lawyers, is just as ridiculous. She kept one mom in her court for 10 years, letting the father get away with never disclosing money or income. At that meeting she told lawyers neither she nor " any judge in the state would allow such discover abuses." Greenwood is a liar. Greenwood is reportedly brown-nosing all over the legal community to get herself on to the Sixth District Court of Appeal, which she will likely run as badly as she has run her family law courtroom. "
Silicon Valley business leaders are also starting to notice the impact family courts has on their employees. One business leader who recently attended a family court reform meeting stated that :
"Without a doubt we see the impact of Santa Clara and Contra Costa Family Courts on our employees and business partners. Parents who were high functioning and missing time at work to attend their children's school , extracurricular sports and music programs are now missing work for these insane child switching schedules that sound more like military exercises than child rearing. "
"Our HR department has reported that when an employee is going through a divorce they will miss as much as a month of work time in order to attend mandatory hearings, supervised visitation time with their own children and meetings with experts that reportedly are being paid insane amounts of money. Our employees are also reporting legal fees and sanctions that surpass anything reasonable. We have had to fire mostly moms for missed work time, and in one case we even had a dad who missed work to go to jail for a custody related matter. It is madness. We are also getting very questionable claims of domestic violence , which appears the courts are not handling well."
"It seems parents we know have a great deal of income and assets may be getting away with physically and financially destroying their ex spouse in a Silicon Valley divorce scheme, , while several women we know to be suffering from real, abuse , are shamed into silence in our community's family court system. "
"Divorce in Silicon Valley now routinely costs $500,000 in legal fees and while a divorce in Sacramento costs $10,000 in legal fees. Indicating an improper transfer of community funds to operate California's cash strapped court system. There shouldn't be such a huge profit on getting people divorced and that is putting emotional and financial pressure on our employees that definitely impacts productivity. "
Public outrage over what Santa Clara's County Courts and law enforcement did in the rape case of Emily Doe, the Domestic Violence Cases of Kendra Scott and Neha Rastogi are also impacting Silicon Valley businesses.
" We are getting reports from Apple , Netflix, Cuberon, Google, Yahoo! , LinkedIn and an number of other Big SV businesses that community members are so outraged at how Silicon Valley courts are treating women, that it is getting harder to attract new employees and investors to our area. It also is having a very negative impact on productivity."
The new reality for business leaders has been a reality to families for too long. Over 10,000 really angry underground parents, lawmakers, watchdogs and business leaders are committed to funding campaigns; to financially investigate courts, to weed out corrupt judges and to disbar badly behaved lawyers who are creating this unstainable axis of evil in Silicon Valley Family Courts.
The group is also very dedicated to bringing family courts to the greater public attention, as it is believed to be the largest mental health and financial crisis of our time.
To sign up for current post card parties, social media campaigns to let businesses and law makers know what is going on, or to connect with others having problems with the crooks running family courts :

Orange County is a tough act to follow. There are Traffic Court Scandals and Jailhouse Snitches that have rocked Orange County headlines for decades. And the crookedly corrupt Santa Clara County David Yamasaki CEO moved to Santa Clara County just last year, which Q reported on in May 2016 based on Yamasaki's alleged stealing of court funds and landscape materials when building the new Santa Clara County Courthouse.
The recent beating of defense attorney James Crawford who beat DA Tony Rackauckas in court during the Jailhouse snitch scandal , may now be at the top of the list as DA investigator Craig Hunter slips out of the DA's office two years after being busted for Sexting on the job.
Sexting is not the real issue, it is just what finally got a crony out. Add to this the pattern of sheer corruption in Orange County where crooks like private judges David Wienberg and Gale Hickman are paid millions to legally sanction fraud and void orders where they steal money from children and families in divorce and probate court, and you have a pretty strong contender.
Wienberg's clan includes outright corrupt lawyers like Thomas Tuttle and Michael Morris of Minyard and Morris, who routinely use less than ethical CPAs including Drew Hunt, and other 730 experts who masterfully alienate good parents in custody wars ignited by Orange County Family Courts. The latest trend in legal scams is the conversion of community property for reunification camps, where so called "doctors" like Dr. Duke Bussey, Dr. Wiley Johnson, Dr. Jorge Galinda, Dr. Jose Cervantes and Dr. Budner are all to happy to take court appointments and present an outcome that favors wealthier parents in divorce cases.
Santa Clara County is closing in with DA Jeff Rosen, who has played a masterful political hand in Santa Clara County. He has slowly worked his cronies like Karen Sinunu Towery and Valerie Houghton into the county's family courts, where he has dutifully covered up police misconduct of the Santa Clara County Sheriffs, the San Jose Police and the Los Gatos Police department, where DUI ticket fixes, 49er ticket kickbacks and protection of wife beating Silicon Valley CEOS like Abhishek Gattani and sports washouts like former 49er Ray McDonald, are just another day at the office for Rosen and his cronies.
See McDonald's police report in 2015, one of many and Rosen still couldn't get a conviction?
Like Orange County many CPAs, custody experts and vocational examiners are used to rob Silicon Valley families blind as Rosen has ignored professionally licensed individuals using community property as their own personal treasure chests.
But there is a new AG in town and Jeff Sessions may be Rosen's bigger worry.
As Rosen and his cronies spend hours pandering to immigration issues, the reality is they are ignoring the majority of the immigrant population in order to protect a corrupt family court, a broken jail system and celebrities and Silicon Valley tech execs and movie makers like Netflix. Rosen's family court cronies make Rackauckas seem like a rookie.
We want to hear from our readers: How did Tony Rackauckas or Jeff Rosen ignore or fail to protect the people of Orange and Santa Clara Counties?
No matter what you may think about Trump and Jeff Sessions, if they will investigate the crooked DA offices in Orange County and Santa Clara County , we have about 10,000 victims who would like to help .
And if they still need help, we have about 10,000 more willing to help address Contra Costa and Sacramento Counties where seems the State Bar just names Steven Moawad New Chief Trial Counsel at the State Bar, DA Mark Person's #1 crony.
If history tells us anything, it tells us that Joseph Dunn and James Towery, former Chief Trial Counsel for the Bar, laid the foundation for Steven Moawad of Contra Costa who was just been appointed to the State Bar , where he will likely use Judge Mills and DA Mark Peterson to put Contra Costa on the corruption list as soon as next month.
Hey Jeff Sessions- how about some good old IRS investigations - may produce plenty of funds to help you open up those DA offices, and family courts.
We just want our kids and out houses back !

Santa Clara Cronies Report Allred to the State Bar?
NEWSFLASH: STATE BAR INVESTIGATION OF GLORIA ALLRED:
Gloria Allred has spent her career in high profile cases involving women who were sexually assaulted, harassed and abused. Allred has mastered the press and taken on celebrities like Bill Cosby and most recently Donald Trump. Her own daughter, Lisa Bloom, and has quickly carved a name for herself in the recent legal and press moves that took out O' Reilly from Fox News and where Bloom is calling for New York to clean out the cronies who have been harassing women for decades.
This mother - daughter dynamic duo may have met their match when Ms. Allred decided to come to Santa Clara County and take on the 49ers through Ray McDonald.
Funny thing is, Ms. Allred never is seen representing victims with little money or media draw, like Kendra Scott and Neha Rastogi, apparently only letters released by Jeff Rosen for political reasons are picked up in mainstream media, maybe that is why.
In April it was formally announced that DA Rosen dropped the criminal rape charges against former 49er Ray Mc Donald and his teammate Brooks, charges that had rocked Silicon Valley since 2014. The dismissal seemed carefully timed with an absence of press coverage, as McDonald was heard around Silicon Valley bars to be bragging about his ability to buy his way out of rape charges.
This is not Rosen's first rodeo , he is quickly becoming the DA known for using the infamous Brock Turner Stanford rape case to get reelected just as many suggest he used Audrie Pott's suicide and the legal pursuit of Saratoga High School students to advance cyberbullying laws for political clout and collateral with Silicon Valley courts and law enforcement. Clyde Berg, Ray McDonald and Abhistek Gattani, not withstanding. Sadly for victims like Emily Doe, Kendra Scott and immigrant Silicon Valley CEO , protecting women and immigrants doesn't seem to be a priority for Rosen, his so called Domestic Violence Task Force doesn't even answer their tax paid phone.
Prior taking up the civil case of Ms. Wolf, Ms. Allred had the option to take on Ms. Scott, who was the former fiancée of Mr. McDonald , and who was a repeated victim of domestic violence and who had spent her child’s entire life watching Santa Clara County courts ignore that domestic violence, as they gave McDonald increasing visitation with child under two who was breastfeeding and allowed overnight visits with McDonald and a hooker looking girlfriend McDonald claimed was his “nanny”.
Allred also had the opportunity to take up the case of legally alienated parent Michael Lazarin, in the Audrie Pott Suicide matter, which she declined, and where Rosen’s conduct is being questioned.
Allred surely rode the McDonald community media frenzy in 2016, after parents in Hayward, California protested Superintendent Stan Dobbs allowing McDonald to speak to at risk students, a decision that ultimately cost Dobbs not only his job, and reputation, after an investigator found that Dobbs had had affairs, lied and acted angry over his decision to allow McDonald to at risk students and underage children. .
As Allred was busy pretending to care about a Santa Clara County rape victim, and no not Emily Doe , victim of Stanford rapists, Brock Turner, she was out carving her name more like a rock star than a lawyer with cases involving Bill Cosby and even President Trump, so certainly Allred was too busy to notice the incestuous snake pit known as Santa Clara County’s legal system. One with a $1.3 billon dollar 49er stadium sitting right in the middle of that pit.
If Allred had been paying attention she would have noticed that McDonald’s custody lawyer, Elise Mitchell , had landed McDonald’s custody case before James Towery, where Kendra Scott, represented by an inept Legal Aid lawyer; Nicole Ford, and later Heather Smith , managed to violate Due Process and get Judge Emede signed an order granting McDonald visitation, while fraudulently stating both parties were in court when the order was agreed to, which it was not. Orders Towery has been all to happy to stick to , protecting McDonald 5th Amendment Rights, as he had time to buy his way out of rape charges.
All of Santa Clara County knew that Rosen could not prosecute Ray McDonald for Domestic Violence , or rape. In the months that followed the first Domestic Violence issues involving McDonald. The San Jose Police had been investigated and found to be taking free 49er tickets and private security assignments. That little kickback scheme ultimately reached up to Gavin Newsom and Governor Brown, who had appointed James Towery to the Santa Clara Family law bench , as Santa Clara saw a 2016 $150,000,000 annual goldmine after bringing the 49ers to town with Levi Stadium.
Rosen knew criminal charges against McDonald would be more embarrassing than the OJ Simpson case, and Rosen does not want his legacy aligned with Marcia Clark.
Certainly Ms. Allred had been too busy with her high profile clients to notice that James Towery is married to Karyn Sinunu Towery, who worked in the Santa Clara County DA office for over 30 years, and is reported to have been responsible for the hiring of Jeff Rosen, and was ultimately run out of the DA’s office for failing to prosecute 49ers involved in violent crimes.
And after she was run out of the DA's office, Ms. Sinunu Towery became involved in the Innocence Project, which was later used by her husband to investigate prosecutorial misconduct, when James Towery was briefly employed at the California State Bar as Chief Trail Counsel . Insiders report that Rosen’s office was essentially given immunity from prosecutorial misconduct discipline , where it was widely known Towery did not prosecute lawyers in his “in crowd “, including lawyers in the DA’s office like Rosen, and lawyers like Elise Mitchell, Mark Erickson, Hector Moreno, James Cox, Brad Baugh, Heather Allan, James McManis, Richard Roggia, Walter Hammon, Catherine Bechtel, Steve DeFillppis and lawyers from Hoge Fenton. Towery is not worried, even about a heated affair he had with lawyer Valerie Houghton, who is being indicted on white collar crimes, who will likely settle out or disappear, as Rosen will assure. Towery has the game locked up in Silicon Valley, by putting his clout in really shady association and nonprofit money laundering schemes.
Had Ms. Allred been paying attention, she also would have noticed that as James Towery was bigwig at the Bar, as Towery also was involved in making billons in the Facebook case, which appears to have successfully ripped Facebook away from Boston and the Winkelvoss twins, with his buddy Thomas Girardi benefiting and cashing in all the way.
Giradri was responsible for getting Towery hired at the Bar, where Towery gave Girardi , Keese , Engstrom , Lipscomb and Lack a free pass on discipline based in conduct in the Dole Food company case, and based on Farmers Insurance Class Action, worth over $15 billon, and where LA County Judge William Highberg, like Judge Towery , didn’t feel the need to report bad lawyers, as Canon 3 of California’s Judicial Code of Ethics required him to do.
Had Ms. Allred been paying attention, she might have realized that James Towery and his State Bar goons have a long history of legally decimating women , in a crony network that has made them billons in real estate, class action lawsuits and even divorce cases.
It wouldn’t take an investigative reporter more than a few days to connect the dots to James Towery and Thomas Girardi , even in the well famed PG& E class action, made famous by Erin Brockovich and cashed in on by Thomas Girardi and James Towery, the old looking crooked family law judge in charge of McDonald’s custody case. Where few know Girardi and Towery made their most money and power from the Facebook case, which Towery benefited from as he was employed by the State Bar, and later as a Santa Clara County Judge.
Not to be missed is Towery's hand in State Bar corruption that was concealed from California's State Auditor, which Jayne Kim pretended to be concerned about , where scandalous financial reports show that as Towery, Girardi, Howard Miller and Walter Lack and all their cronies were making buckets of money in California's huge class action cases, as they were misappropriating money from State Bar Members in magic money that disappeared in organizations like CaliforniaAll and the Innocence project, Sinunu- Towery's pet project.
Joe Dunn appears to have been the fall guy, as regime change was made under San Mateo DA office Fox and Steve Wagstaffe, that keeps DA offices connected with the State Bar. judges and lawyers in a manner that should alarm the public and those managing California's legal system.
There is no doubt that Allred and her daughter Bloom have made a legal impact for women in many cases, but the problem is; in taking only the cases with an easy fix and settlement because a video , or deep pocket exists, Allred leaves behind thousands of women, children and men, who are subjected to the legal system , domestic violence and rape, where no fancy lawyer , or media circus, protects them.
Lawyers who do take these tough and low paying cases are ultimately financially broken, or investigated by the State Bar, as James Towery still clearly pulls the strings on influencing attorney discipline. Allred now joins the ranks of lawyers who have tried to protect women in the legal system, and she may lose her Bar Card as a result.
Gloria should review what Towery did to Michael Pines who just tried to protect clients from illegal real estate foreclosures. At the same time Towery did not investigate many lawyers in family law, including Nancy Perkovich, Diana Richmond, Bob Blevans and Nat Hales, who we now know from State Bar discipline and court of appeals rulings, are crooked and unethical.
Until then, maybe Ms. Allred can help prospectively look for a good divorce lawyer to join her team, that way she can cash in on helping Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne in a eventual divorce from Thomas Girardi, where we wish her good luck in getting half of that community estate as Girardi will likely consult with his favorite family law judge, James Towery, the master of financial abuse of women and voodoo math in divorce cases.
In the meantime Ms, Allred, I guess the women and children of Santa Clara who can't afford your services, or those of Lisa Bloom, will just have to keep filing appeals, federal complaints and writing letters, or postcards, to state law makers like Catharine Baker, and Nancy Pelosi, trying to get someone to listen to what California Courts are doing in these family law cases.
Every year thousands of people contact reporters, editors and publishers desperately seeking help in exposing the horrors of our modern family courts,
CPS workers, foster care programs, parental alienation , domestic violence, lying in court, unethical lawyers and bad judges are topics people once living normally in society suddenly face when they enter a family court case, and many want help telling the world what is going on.
Newspapers including the San Francisco Chronicle, LA Times , San Jose Mercury , Boston Globe and even the New York Times have refused to dive into the waters on family court issues. Last week the San Jose Mercury missed a print deadline, and this on the heels of letting over 80% of their staff and reporters go. Old print and tv media is struggling in our modern world,
Divorce and probate cases are messy. A "he said she said" story can bite a reporter picking the wrong issue to cover. Children die and a story is told here and there, but those stories don't begin to scratch the surface of what is going on in our modern world. On social media the stories are told over and over to thousands on Facebook , Twitter, Blogs and Websites.
People are waking up on social media to realize if a woman or child is beaten in a family law matter, it is tossed to the secrecy of family courts. The DA and the police don't even investigate,
In family court when a spouse hides money or evades child support, only poor and W2 income is addressed by DCSS. Parents hiding money in Silicon Valley LLCs and corporations, get a free pass from the DA while the homeless, mentally ill and poor get imputed for income and jailed for not paying it.
Divorce lawyers now help one spouse hide money and income in a divorce where these unethical lawyers are rewarded with legal fees and sanctions. Biased judges seem ill-equipped to deal with unethical lawyers, but business partners outside of a divorce face juries and criminal changes for the same conduct.
District attorneys, like Jeff Rosen , often build their careers selectively jailing criminals of high campaign value, while ignoring real victims in their own community . In those same communities police misconduct and improper governmental activity runs rampant in family courts. Real crimes are not investigated in family court matters. If victims have no money or political value to a sitting elected District Attorney, they don't even get to file a complaint.
Bill Cosby started the conversation, about Sexual Harassment. The revelation that countless women were ignored by the legal community and the press to advance Bill Coby's career, opened up new ideas and showed the role social media had in breaking barriers previously formed by a mainstream press.
The firing of Bill O' Reilly with Fox news is a result of today's social media, and a struggling mainstream media that has been asleep at the wheel where modern society has come.
The LA times tells how social media put enough pressure on Fox news , along with lawsuits filed buy Lisa Bloom, to accelerate change. This will have a ripple effect on business, media and courts and is a clear social revolution.
Family Courts are next on the horizon. Parents who have been sanctioned and fined to death, or falsely accused of domestic violence so that unethical judges and lawyers can steal their homes, their income , their property, and their children have had enough .
Women who have been beaten and told they have to deal with one crooked judge and an apathetic DA are done. Men like Ray McDonald, and Abhishek Gattani who get off terribly violent crimes against women and children, have to be stopped.
Women like Keri Evilsizor who use men as breeding stock to turn the fathers of their children into criminals using a corrupt legal system and money, have to be stopped,
People who claim harassment and stalking to detract from fraud , abuse and other crimes, have to be stopped.
Courts that jail and impute income to innocent parents to fund a broken family court system, have to be exposed and stopped .
In all of this , the greatest loss is to our children. Children deserve to have communities that support and protect them, not ones that allow one parent to destroy another, and get away with it by paying the more corrupt and unethical lawyer.
Silicon Valley is the next Fox News. The world leader in social and technology revolution has been caught concealing abuse, protecting abusers and funding the corruption of our legal system and now Silicon Valley will be called on the carpet and subjected to sunshine brighter than a California summer day.
We need mainstream media to hear our voice and to bring transparency to what is really going on in communities throughout our country. When main stream media does the job it is intended to do, newspapers won't need to fire reporters and women won't have to continue to be beaten, raped and harassed by rich and powerful men.
Members of Q are starting modern protests. Join us in Contra Costa, Marin, Napa and Santa Clara County for post card parties , mailing campaigns and rallies to show the world what is going on in California's Family Courts.

California Publisher Assembles Team to Cover Family Court Issues for Boston Globe's Spotlight Fellowship
SPOTLIGHT ON FAMILY COURTS WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING
In 2002 the Boston Globe changed the world of reporting forever when it defied what many in mainstream media would not do; Exposed the Sex Abuse of Children Locked in the Secrecy and Sanctimony of the Catholic Church, forever changing how the world saw the church and demonstrating the importance of a Free Press.
A California Publisher is hoping the Globe, along with Spotlight Fellowship supporters OpenRoad, FirstLook and Participant Media will defy the status quo once again and wade into the murky waters of America's Modern Family Courts.
The Spotlight Fellowship was started to address issues of public importance. What could be of greater importance than the courts that address deeply personal and emotional issues related to custody, property and income for 50% of married Americans who find themselves in divorce or probate courts?
With permission Q obtained a copy of the redacted proposal letter submitted on behalf of the team anxious to bring family court issues to the greater public's attention. The team includes highly experienced lawyers , custody experts, activists, researchers and investigative reporters, whose names were redacted for privacy and security purposes.
Each year hundreds of thousands of family court victims reach out to reporters in communities across America ,desperately seeking to have their stories told, and hoping the press will provide transparency for family court issues. Shrinking budgets, consolidated news organizations and underfunded reporters have left few qualified members in the press interested in, or able to cover, the deeply personal and messy issues surrounding family court cases.
Public records and media requests related to family law cases are virtually non existent and a lack of transparency has allowed complete system failure in the monopolistic family court environment.
Over the past 10 years family court reform activistists have been forced online to anonymous emails and blogs to address what mainstream media would not. This shift has led to an underground movement intent on exposing the injustices modern courts inflict on innocent citizens.
In 2016 the Boston Globe's staff writers Nestor Ramos and Evan Allen did a remarkable investigative piece tackling some of the complex issues contained in the secrecy of family courts. But it was not enough. The story got over 466,000 Facebook likes and 86 comments, a great feat for print story.
Few other mainstream media outlets will touch family law issues. The San Jose Mercury has an informal policy that it won't cover family law cases, until children are drugged raped and die, or are found to be being drugged while in foster care programs. And judges will not react unless the press keeps a bright light on what the judiciary is doing in family courts.
A Free Press is needed to shine a bright light on the family court issues facing every community across the nation, Some news outlets are trying to cover the issue, but few have the staff or resources to do the hours of research and interviews family court issues demand.
Please join the underground movement to bring these issues to mainstream media- sign the petition to the Boston Globe and email : Caljohnqpublic@gmail.com to join the movement and stop the madness more commonly known as Modern Family Court Justice.
Tale of Two Cities: Boston's Patriots v. SF 49ers
Boston does it better than Silicon Valley, at least where prosecuting NFL players for domestic violence, murder or rape is concerned.
On March 30, 2017 the testimony of Aaron Hernandez's former fiancée sounded eerily familiar to the details Kendra Scott has described related to the domestic violence she suffered from at the fists of former 49er Ray McDonald.
Victims who are beaten, raped and even killed appear to receive more protection in Boston that in San Jose when one considers the stories of the two former NFL stars ; Aaron Hernandez of the New England Patriots and Ray Mc Donald of the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears.
The story that unfolded in a Boston criminal court on March 30, 2017, shows the woes of being entangled in love and custody with a NFL player, and how the conduct of police and district attorneys just might serve to protect the violent and nasty men in NFL uniforms more than the women and children they beat and abuse.
In Boston, police diligently investigated two murder cases involving former Patriot tight- end Aaron Hernandez , where his fiancée had to seek prosecutorial immunity to testify against him, a common issue where victims of high profile abusers are concerned. Hernandez is already serving a life sentence for one murder.
In Boston the police appear to have done their job, the DA's office prosecuted fiercely and the courts appear to be functioning as they should.
San Jose, California tells a different story.
Kendra Scott, the former fiancée of former 49er Ray Mc Donald, has waited three years to see justice for the multiple beatings she took at the fists of the father of her child. She is still waiting. Santa Clara County's DA , Jeff Rosen, hasn't even bothered to have Ms. Scott interviewed despite Ms. Scott being a victim of a crime and a witness related to rape allegations, both of which Mc Donald is currently facing in criminal court.
Police reports and grand jury investigations have produced little justice for Kendra who has been; ignored by Jeff Rosen's office for three years, forced into a Santa Clara family court custody case before James Towery (ethically compromised former senior trial counsel at the State Bar, 49er fan, and husband of a prosecutor who refused to prosecute other 49ers), and shamed as a gold-digger by nearly every major media outlet in the country over the past three years. Kendra drives an old Honda, and makes less than a living wage and has never had more than a few hundred dollars to her name.
After three years of being subjected to years of media coverage Mc Donald brought to her door, Ms. Scott has seen 49er fans send her death threats and hate mail after TMZ published her home address, which was reportedly leaked to the press by an unscrupulous court information officer or court staffer after Ms. Scott filed a request for a domestic violence restraining order on her own , with no money to hire a lawyer. The court employee may have been fired as part of a court cover up and conspiracy designed to protect huge Silicon Valley government and financial interests.
Through a series of bumbling police work, DA vote pandering and family court incompetence, Scott's protections just drifted out of sight and all such was left with was a court that increased Mc Donald's visitation and custody time , as he stood facing rape and EPRO violations.
Ironically, just as Scott believed Santa Clara County had abandoned her and her 2 year old son, the county is faced with Mc Donald's criminal and civil cases for rape of a woman he picked up in a bar, and McDonald's old worksite, Levi Stadium is under a sea of corruption , financial and legal claims, and those claims now appear to be reaching into the sparkly new San Jose Family Court, where McDonald is reported to have spent millions on his legal fees, eroding the once flush NFL $20,000,000 contract he flashed all over Silicon Valley.
A police department that sells out a victim for 49er tickets, a family court that protects NFL players over DV victims and children, and a DA that runs around prosecuting Saratoga High school students instead of NFL football players leaves Silicon Valley as the new face of corruption and the " deflate gate " scandal in the dust. .
FAKE NEWS BEGINS In 1897
In 1897, a little eight year old girl wrote to the editor of the New York Times asking if there really was a Santa, because her friends told her , "if it was published in The Sun, it had to be true."
At that moment in time the world came to an ethical crossroads. Parents, unwilling to dash the hope and beliefs of their own children looked to others . Members of the press held their breath with the ethical dilemma facing a prominent editor.
What happened next changed history , and the ethical standards of journalism forever, the editor lied, and sanctioned that lie under the cloak of an "opinion". And in reality , that letter was the first very public evidence , and endorsement of what is now known as "Fake News".
Every week hundreds of people email Q and ask one consistent question: How can they lie like that in court?
After years of research we can confidently provide four answers to factually answer those letters with more journalistic integrity than the prominent editor of the New York Times demonstrated back in 1897:
1. Judges have judicial immunity and are RARELY disciplined for actual crimes, much less illegal orders.
2. Lawyers are paid in divorce proceedings to lie, and are allowed to do so under California's Civil Code 47, which allows anyone to say and do anything during a lawsuit. Other states have similar laws.
3. Highly paid accountants, custody experts and even realtors appointed by courts are also allowed to lie in court. They actually make money in fees by lying and keeping your divorce or custody matter going. Yes, they are paid with your money to make up lies against you and to discredit you .
4. District attorneys never prosecute for perjury, never look at governmental misconduct in the county's family courts and will do anything to protect a corrupt local police force that will harass and arrest anyone who tries to speak up against the family court system, discounting it as a "private matter".
5. Mainstream media will not cover family law issues, and journalists are quick to dismiss the rapidly growing social media news underground, reporting on real stories, as "Fake News".
Sadly, judges used to be the gatekeepers of this conduct. Their job used to be to maintain civility in and outside the court. Today our courts are struggling for funds, so there is incentive to keep you in court forever, Courts are financially rewarded for not doing their job collecting mandatory federally assured child support and judges socialize and have financial relationships with the lawyers, custody experts , accountants and realtors they have the power to appoint an pay in your divorce case.
Public outrage is being fueled by real numbers, not fake news or family court lies.
In the numbers divorce filings are actually down, but because they are such and important revenue source to family courts, these cases are forced to linger for 5-10 years where millions are spent for court reporters, court clerk, judges, public information officers, custody evaluators , supervisor and lawyers for children those lawyers never bother to meet. Even the family courthouses in local communities outstrip the facilities of civil and criminally courts, telling you right where the money is.
Judges, once the respected and valued members of every community are now the crooks with the purse strings and the power to ruin the lives of the children trapped in family courts, where the judges , lawyers and court staff are paid with the equity of the homes and business of their parents.
The only way for all of this to change is for the public to start naming the judges and removing the bad ones from their communities, by way of vote, so that future families are not harmed. Judges who stop paying crooked lawyers and experts to keep the fighting parents in court longer, will succeed in resolving family law issues, not personally profiting from them. Judges have become bullies and villains , not the heroes we once thought them to be. Good judges need to speak up .
Additionally, the media needs to commit journalists with integrity to cover family law issues, and to investigate the thousands of crazy stories that come to them each year from the communities our print and online media claims to serve.
Finally, editors, even like the not so good editors associated with this site, need to admit that the editor of the New York Sun, lied to Virginia back in 1897, because there is no Santa and because people lie in family court.

" Q" News & Investigations- March 27, 2017 Updates
Bob Blevans may have wet his suit pants earlier this week when Tracy Hayward showed up to assist her friend in a crooked little Kangaroo court case run by attorney Diana Richmond, the lawyer acting as a private judge who equals attorneys Nat Hales, Brad Baugh, Richard Roggia, Catherine Gallagher, James Cox, Mark Erickson , Elise Mitchell and Nancy Perkovich in topping the list of Q investigations.
As a defensive move, Blevans and Richmond tossed false allegations at Hayward, after Hayward reportedly caught Blevans and Richmond engaging in exparte commucnaitons, in a hallway, as her pro per friend sat in an empty conference room waiting for her sham of a "hearing " under Richmond's 638 appointment to begin.
Blevan's and Richmond's false reports were able to get SF police to remove Ms. Hayward from 1 Embarcadero. Blevans does not appear worried, despite the State Bar opening another investigation on him following the Hayward case being upheld by the Supreme Court earlier this month.
Diana Richmond, another attorney the State Bar has continued to unleash on the public as a private judge is reported to have encouraged her "private" court reporters to change court transcripts, in what would certainly be a violation of the law, and grounds for disbarment. Her rulings appear to continue to thumb her nose at pro per litigants and lawyers who try to report her misconduct and her cronyism is cloaked in judicial immunity from Napa to San Francisco where she appears to be another menace to divorce litigants much like what has been seen with Nancy Perkovich and Nat Hales, where a Bar run by crooks and cronies like James Towery, Sherie McLetchie and now Fox are all asleep at the public wheel but driving off in the latest sports car with their cronies who have created havoc in California's family courts.
Richmond, like Brad Baugh, Nat Hales, James Cox, Richard Roggia, Heather Allan, Rebecca Frye, and Walter Hammon, have been avoiding State Bar discipline since Santa Clara County lawyer James Towery secured a position as top senior trial counsel in 2010.
Towery appears to have been illegally protecting some lawyers, while harshly prosecuting others in a manner that is self serving where he is entrenched with wives, ex-wives and buddies in Silicon Valley's legal community . Even now as a sitting judge, Towery appears to be continuing to use his State Bar connections to go after innocent lawyers, and ignore the crooks who harm the public, in the same manner as Victoria Henley protects crooked family law judges, which now includes James Towery himself. Towery clearly knows where the legal bodies are buried and he has a license to take money , property and children,. while appointing lawyers as "experts " in the cases before him.
Henley, now the subject of both state and federal lawsuits herself. is defending public criticism with public funds, as the state's judiciary is under public attack , at the same time Chief Justice Cantil - Sakayuke is begging for more money to fight the very public she is elected and appointed to serve. There is no evidence the state's current judicial leadership has acted to protect the pubic and clean house, and that may pose a very dangerous position where the state's legal system is concerned. The current state and federal lawsuits show that the Commission on Judicial Performance , led by Henley, failed to protect the public from corrupt judges like Judge Moss, who acted criminally to steal land from senior citizens. Each county has such judges: Mills in Contra Costa, Towery in Santa Clara, but add in these private judges, JAMS and referees, that Towery ignored at the State Bar, the problem eclipses what can be addressed in state courts.
Protecting Judge Moss, Judge Towery and Judge Mills may have a cost of more than state and federal lawsuit that tax payers won't tolerate, and that lawyers and judges might consider before circling their wagons. The pro pers and the Qs have declared war on the dangerous judges and lawyers, and their are more pro pers and Q's than judges and lawyers.
In Santa Clara County , seasoned lawyers like Travis Krepalka , Hector Moreno, Elise Mitchell and Walter Hammon are reportedly acting paranoid in court, assuming everyone is there to watch them and reporting back to Q . CPAs including James Butera, Michael Thomspon and Megan Thompson are reportedly worried as catching the bad lawyers could disrupt a very lucrative flow of business, where CPAs make millions preparing false (or misleading) accountings for certain lawyers and their unethical clients in Silicon Valley's lucrative divorce and real estate deals.
So called custody experts and psychologists are also the subject of investigative reporters, who have been looking into the links between family law custody experts used in divorce cases, funded with Silicon Valley real property equity. CPAs and psychologists appear to be misusing the law, to enrich themselves from community property. Lawyers like Cox, Hales, Roggia Hougthton and Baugh have been allowed to act as trustees and receivers, where Santa Clara has had a known problem since Towery had his hands all over the State Bar discipline files.
On the list of psychologists being investigated, , Sullivan, Houghton, Stahl , Smith , Packard, and Pearlmutter are among the few who have caused the state t0 look at the psychologists involved in family law cases, where they are granted immunity in return for charging parents huge fees and costs. Q investigations has led to Michael Kerner topping the list. Kerner has reportedly had hundreds of complaints, which have been ignored by San Mateo and Santa Clara County judges, counties and Kerner's own licensing board. Orlando Smith, is not far behind Kerner as court files show these men appear to be conspiring with documented abusers and criminals, and awarding them full custody when mothers attempting to protect their children try to speak up. All paid fro with pricy Silicon Valley real estate.
Most alarming is the pattern of using real estate in family law cases. Rather than equally dividing community property in a California divorce , court files show that a core group of lawyers, real estate agents and companies (Terry Houghton, Patty Filice) are using divorce cases and real property equity to drag custody battles out for years. This in turn pays custody experts, CPAs and others to keep fighting and discord going in divorces that now last 7-10 years before couples and their estates are legally divided.
Alarming new evidence also links the Los Gatos Police, the San Jose police and the Santa Clara County DA's office, under Jeff Rosen, to these cases, some dating back 20 years and some including lawyers in the DA's office, including Judge Towery's wife.
In 2011 James Towery viciously charged attorney Michael Pines, disbarring him and chasing him down to silence him at all costs. Pine's crime at the State Bar? He attempted to point clients to the county's illegal foreclosure issues. by encouraging them to stay in their homes.
Towery's conduct came under suspicion when he appeared to go after Pines, but ignored the countless complaints against lawyers in San Jose proper , including those made against his wife's colleagues in DA Jeff Rosen's office.
San Jose's Sixth District Court of Appeal may have been in on trying to block records that connect Towery and other judges to Silicon Valley real estate fraud, where pricy homes in Los Gatos and Santa Clara County were not the biggest, or only, jewel stolen in drawn out divorce cases.
Now that the state's highest court has overturned the Sixth District's Public Records case, important real estate records are fair game, and developers of big Silicon Valley real estate including Lynch of Los Gatos (represented by Nat Hales and Brad Baugh in his divorce case) and may be more connected to the South County giants like the Felice and Sobrato families, than the public was led to believe. Seems James Towery's private email account, and personnel records at the State Bar, might be a little more relevant to Governor Jerry Brown appointing him to Santa Clara County Family Court than the state's legal system, the DA or the Los Gatos police department would want to admit .
Popularized by the 1999 film, The Matrix, the "red pill v. blue pill " option in life supposedly symbolizes the choice between embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) and the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue pill).
Red Pill - Movie Attacks Gender War Myths
On March 7, 2017 , The RED PILL, a movie produced by a feminist journalist covering the Men's Rights Movement shakes gender wars to their point of origin. This brave new film may just finally move men and women from fighting one another in court, and instead focusing on the family courts, and the role the lawyers and judges play in fueling gender bias in courts that are supposed to act as courts of equity.
In divorce court the red pill v. blue pill symbolizes a more disturbing trend in American society: The red pill symbolizing the medication many women often take to combat depression commonly faced in mid life and the blue pill many men in midlife take in an effort to maintain their youthful sex drive and masculinity. use of these medications are used to discredit and marginalize one spouse, for a litigation advantage and that serves to allow courts to continue the discord and fighting between spouses.
Evidence shows that it is not long after medications are brought into the divorce record, that false claims of domestic violence, and character assignations implying mental health instability that should preclude fair custody and property divisions, can rage out of control . Court files show bad, incompetent and biased family court judges mismanage cases such that they effectively become the mental health judges of parents and spouses appearing in divorce court.
Too often, a judge presiding over a case for years, takes one side because of medication bias, thereby taking one side, conduct that fuels unethical lawyers bringing these battles to courtroom instead of allowing people to privately address such matters with their health care providers. This is often done in modern divorce cases as real violence and debilitating mental health problems, formerly concealed in the secrecy of the family and intimate relationships, are sidelined through years of ineffective and biased family court management.
Spouses arrive in divorce court when something goes terribly wrong in a marriage; infidelity, cultural clashes, parenting differences, disability, mental impairment and even sexual dysfunction. Divorce court is the sobering reality that very private matters once contained in the secrecy of the family are suddenly thrust into a public record where courts of equity act more to pit one spouse against another than to fairly and equitably divide and separate them.
When spouses first arrive in divorce court the are often daze and confused at the sight of a courtroom. Many see these courtrooms for the first time in life, and for 70% of people involuntarily forced into a divorce, do so without a lawyer, and with no education or training in the law.
Individuals terrified of public speaking , the most common fear in all humans, are terrified to find that while they needed only a court clerk signature to get married, they need to speak to a judge, in a room full of strangers, and communicate in a foreign language , just to address their most protected rights.
It quickly becomes a sobering reality for school teachers, professors, tech gurus, CEOs, engineers, musicians and community leaders that they don't know their way around a legal pleading or have the faintest notion of what a void order means. Those who have never been to college may even find that in order to assure their time with their children, or their rightful share of a marital estate, they have to get a crash course not only in basic writing, but in legal writing and laws, as they face a represented spouse in control of community funds.
Newcomers to the American legal system, entering through the gates of family courts, enter starry eyed, armed with a third grade understanding of the Constitution and hope, of faith in God, that the single presiding judge in their case will fairly divide their property, act in the best interest of their children, be subject to public transparency and insist on the truth. God and family courts are legally separated.
By a second appearance in court, the sobering reality of the dysfunction of the family court begins to creep in. Overworked court clerks can't give direction on filing out paperwork , self help centers are overcrowded, pro bono services are non existent and understaffed and spacious modern courthouses feel designed more to keep the public out than to conduct the business of the people .
Passing through security screening litigants find that the law enforcement they expected to protect them, act more to obstruct access and transparency to the courts. Courts set local rules designed to protect incompetent government officials more than due process in the court system and tax dollars are spent for inaccessible speaking courthouses , lawyers and judges, and not on the staff who do the majority of the legal work.
The greatest reality check is the legal lying, permitted under Civil Code 47, which allows lawyers and litigants to lie in pleadings , income declarations and never be checked.
As ....."But he is a liar" ......... " She is insane" " echo through family court hallways day in and day out , and these lies , legally permitted, are tolerated by judges to the point that it impacts the outcome of the case. Fueled by unscrupulous lawyers undisciplined by the State Bar, and family courts are the legal disaster of the United States Courts.
Impacted court calendars, blamed on lack of state funding, are responsible for dragging divorce cases out 5- 7 years , when a middle class divorce has real estate or business assets that nefarious lawyers use to convert to millions a year in personal fees and income. Family lawyers, the least regulated and disciplined in the California Bar Association, are now among the highest paid in the legal profession.
Family court fees, charged on the future of our children, are generating the largest component of California's modern court budgets. Courts are covering budget shortfalls on the backs of community property estates.
Lawyers requesting and paying experts, judges continuing hearings for months or years at a time earn more money for local court budgets and lying to keep those fees churning are an important part of the modern legal system's financial plan.
The most alarming trend in the modern family court is the sheer lack of transparency. Guarded by litigation privilege, judicial immunity and court staff refusing to comply with even the most basic public records requests. The deck is stacked against the family law litigant, and the stage is set to literally drive the innocent and reasonable people into permanent depression and mental health impairment.
Q researchers are currently collaborating with medical experts, and obtaining grant funding to investigate the impact the family court process has on the mental health of those having to go through a divorce for longer than a one year period.

Study Finds People Are Pissed Off: Elkins Task Force Was a Sham - Cloak for Bad Judges to go UNCHECKED in Family Courts
In 2007 California's Supreme Court recognized that self represented parties were being treated like second class citizens by the state's family courts. A big smoke screen called the Elkins Task Force was formed at tax payer expense and the members of the task force claimed to demonstrate their concern over public outrage and specifically noted they watched videos such as this. It was a farce, a sham and the only one who benefited was Garrett Dailey and all the judges who circled the wagons to spend the next decade treating family court pro pers even worse.
Sanctions that Marriage of Tharp and Marriage of Feldman presented in well known and frequently cited cases are a joke. Judges continue to suppress and ignore discovery. Divorces are dragged out for years, raising billons in fees for court reporters and court costs; all paid on the backs of community property, the future of our children and the most voiceless citizens, those who have no education or training in the law. Those who continue to be forced into corrupt courts with lawyers and judges protecting one another and churning out a living by stealing the livings of hard working families. Theft by FC271 sanctions and judge discretion which is void of reason.
If this video was so shocking in 2010 ,what does the video caught by investigative reporters say about judges and lawyers willing to sing about how much money they steal from family court victims to pay for expensive cars and yachts?
Where are the Elkins Task Force Members now ? Here is what we know- help us find the rest :
# 1- Attorney Anthony Capozzi- He got himself a criminal investigation in less than 10 years. No attorney discipline every imposed by the State Bar before the Sherriff investigated. Fresno crooks circled the wagons and got charges for sneaking contraband into a jail to disappear as Capozzi was appointed to the C JP. Apparently Capozzi is turning the State Bar into Mafia West.
Attorney Garrett Dailey who did the Appeal- He made millions and spent the next ten years of his career becoming a family law insider specializing in litigating against the poor and self represented.
Tani- Cantil - Sakauye- she got herself a nice promotion to the state's highest judicial office where she legally smashes pro per litigants, and turns a blind eye to the thousands of complaints submitted each year by pro pers trying to bring attention to their corrupt and biased family law judges. She rose to power because she was a woman and came from immigrants, so she killed two birds with one stone for the rich white male judiciary as far as appearances go.
Erica Yew- She got herself a Chairperson position at the CJP, as she was appointing attorney Nat Hales to her complex cases in Santa Clara County, despite Nat Hales actually admitting to the State Bar he never filed certifications, and oaths in the county, where he acted in multiple probate and family law cases , stealing millions in fees , without following the law as he did . Santa Clara County DA too busy to investigate.
Patricia Lucas- Said she gave up her $720,000 a year career with Fenwick & West to solve problems , but appears to have used the family courts to ignore attorney misconduct, fee gouging and anything to help her attorney peers. She used the Elkins assignment to launch her court career and was present at the Santa Clara County Bar Association holiday luncheon when her judges and lawyers mocked pro per litigants. And three months into her assignment Q research shows she has ignored complaints against judges with clear signs of dementia ( Mary Ann Grilli ) and those with known incompetence, conflicts and unethical behavior ( James Towery) . Clearly the lesson Ms. Lucas learned from her time on the taskforce was not how to help pro pers, but how to step on them and over them for her own self- serving purposes. Seems she never worried her pretty little head about the millions missing from Santa Clara County trusts because there were billons for her to help steal from family courts and public funds to build a new sparkly family injustice center.
Ms. Linda Daeley- Family Court Manager in Orange County , the same county caught raising fees illegally in traffic courts , a debacle that continues to break California Courts financially. And where David Yamasaki , CEO from Santa Clara County went running as the feds caught up to his misuse of funds building the new sparkly Santa Clara County Family Injustice Center.
Judge Hurwitz of Orange County - Ditto on Traffic Court scandal busting them on stealing from the poor in FBI investigation loaded with fake plea deals and corrupt attorneys judges and court staff.
Joseph Irwin- Promotion from Santa Cruz Court mess to the corrupt and protected Santa Clara County mess, that openly steals money from its citizens.
Judge Barry Goode- Second most corrupt county, Contra Costa, where they jailed court reformer Joe Sweeney and sent hatched judges in to block disqualification motions for the Judicial Council, and same county where Judge Humes doctored a court recording to cover his crimes in the court of appeal .
Ms. Tulin D. Acikalin- Bay Area Legal Aid, where the only aid they give is underrepresenting clients so they get their kids stolen and unlawful support orders when they face celebrities in court.
Judge Alksne - San Diego County- known to be the most corrupt and highest CJP disciplines, before Santa Clara County of course. Judge Alksne avoids discipline , time on Elkins translates to more than judicial immunity .
Judge Kenneth K So - of San Diego - Ditto
Jerilyn Borack - Sacramento County where lawyers and judges like Mathew Gary have sex all over the courthouse with clerks and litigants and where they are all rewarded for protecting the secrets and dirt on now chief Justice Tani Cantil - Sakauye. Tani gives out GET OUT OF CJP COMPLAINTS FOR FREE to all Sacramento court staff and judges.
William Vickery may have tried for the CJP, but the wicked Victoria Henley has increased legal fees and expenses and reduced judge and court staff investigations as she and Tani head off to the mall and private tax payers pay for their security detail.
The recommendations in Elkins are a sham. They served to be a road map for crooked judges and lawyers and family law litigants fell from second class citizens to third world status as they are sanctioned to death, robbed of their children and pickpocketed of their personal property from lazy judges who sit on the benches marking time till their own pensions can be cashed in and private judge assignments like Nancy Perkovich got in the Hayward case. It is beyond unjust. It is beyond criminal and the people are pissed and coming for the crooks!
Family Courts Manufacture False Domestic Violence and Abuse in Divorce & Custody Cases: Paid with Community Property to Help Court Budget Deficits
Budgets of California's legal system are in crisis and the state's highest justice appears to be allowing her budget deficits to be paid on the backs of children and litigants engaged in California divorce and custody cases.
Keri Evilsizor, a lawyer in Contra Costa County, convinced a California Court of Appeal that her former husband, Joe Sweeney, had posted comments on a family court blog that caused her such emotional distress that it justified nailing her ex with a domestic violence label before she had untangled their property issues. Evilsizor, funded by the unethical real estate businesses of her parents, gives women and real victims of domestic violence a bad wrap.
Ms. Evilsizor successfully convinced Contra Costa Superior Court Judge Mills that her ex's conduct was so bad, and she was so distressed by reading her ex's opinion on a family law blog, that it warranted sending the 34 year old father of her young child to jail. Now Ms. Evilsizor is using tax payer funds to parade highly paid experts to support her claims, as a litigation tactic in a custody battle where she seeks to deny Joe Sweeney his 50% timeshare and money he is lawful owed based on the state's strong community property laws..
Experts willing to testify to the credulous are always available for hire in divorce cases , and biased judges are always willing to accept the testimony of these shady experts if they intend to act with bias toward a litigant , or lawyer, they don't like. It has little to do with the law and much to do with courtroom antics and shenanigans, more common than just at St. Patrick's Day.
This conduct is not isolated to her own divorce , Keri is reportedly assisting Santa Clara County lawyers willing to try the same tactics for clients who pay a high enough price, especially when those clients draw the luck of being assigned James Towery, the former senior trial counsel of the State Bar. James Towery has a long history of tolerating, and benefiting, from attorney misconduct.
As Keri Evilsizor destroys her own child's parental relationships in the name of false DV claims, she appears to be developing a resume doing the same for other vindictive parents that courts encourage to keep litigating.
CONTRAST : Many are wondering why Kendra Scott, former fiancée of Ray McDonald, can get the SH*T beat out of her, which police documented included punches to her pregnant stomach, and how Judge Towery could spend two years with a custody case involving Scott and McDonald and not deem that documented abuse warranted any punishment for McDonald, or protection for Scott and her 2 year old child.
As Evilsizor whines about distress caused by a family law blog she had to find , log into and read, Scott has been forced to endure years of media scrutiny , death threats by rabid 49er fans and seeing her home address and police reports plastered all over national and local news stations as Mc Donald was repeatedly arrested for domestic violence, child endangerment and even rape of another woman, which caused Scott to terminate her engagement to McDonald. Evilsizor has consulted on cases before Towery and appears to be influencing him to ignore the facts , and the law.
Was it because James Towery and his DA affiliated wife Karen Towery Sinunu were 49er fans? Was it because the local police were star struck and got 49er tickets and security assignments ? Did Keri Evilsizor turn Towery's head on the bench ? Or was it because the DA knew a trial involving McDonald would bring a bright light to the way the county has been addressing domestic violence issues for decades. Perhaps it is just because Joe Sweeney had no lawyer in his custody case, and McDonald has paid over five lawyers millions of dollars to keep him out of jail and gain custody time , despite being a danger to the public and his own child.
This pay for play results are all to common in our family law cases. Evilsizor is a rookie when compared to the crooks in Santa Clara County, which is one of the most incestuous and corrupt in the country.
The recent ruling in the Hayward case revealed that failures to address disclosures and conflicts in divorce cases could lend to the greatest cost for the legal system of all. Q researchers have found few lawyers, judges, and experts making the proper disclosures of their conflicts of interest , required by law as a matter of public protection.
The Hayward case tells us that judges, private judges , attorneys and experts have grown so accustom to ignoring their duty to disclose conflicts, that orders , including final divorce and custody matters could be rendered void as a result. The financial impact of this could be unsustainable for state tax payers, the society consequences of lack of confidence in the state's judiciary is unconstitutional.
Since lawyers and judges have been remiss in reporting their conflicts, Q researchers , whistleblowers and insiders have begun outing those lists in order to show just what has happened to innocent families in the Santa Clara County for the past three decades. A small sampling:
BRADFORD BAUGH - 15 cases from 1995- 2017- reveal Mr. Baugh acted with undisclosed conflicts and by misrepresenting the existence of waivers and manufactured false DV and abuse claims as a litigation tactic deployed over 3 decades. In c. 1995, as he was court appointed as a children's lawyer for a wealthy Los Gatos real estate developer represented by Nat Hales in 1995, false claims of abuse were lodged by Baugh and Hales as a litigation tactic to help the husband conceal money from the wife. In 1998 a girlfriend pointed the wife to the money she had been robbed of in the divorce , which legally Add alienated her from her children as well. The husband ultimately coughed up a large settlement Baugh and Hales had kept him from doing in the divorce case. It took a civil case to do what over $5,000,000 in legal fees in a family law case could not do. The result was the children and former spouses continue to suffer severe emotional distress , with full PTSD symptoms given Baugh and Nat "Ned" Hales willingness to lodge false DV and abuse claims, supported by paid experts wiling to provide testimony for a judge to adopt,. Baugh continued in cases with Hales for the next 30 years, and used others including James Cox, Richard Roiggia, Walter Hammon , Travis Krepelka , Mark Erickson, Heather Allan, Valerie Houghton, James McManis, the law firm of Hoge and Fenton, and others where they earn unconscionable fees from depleting community property estates and where they engaged in perjury and manufacture domestic violence and false abuse claims as a matter of routine.
JUDGE TOWERY - The obligation to disclose is required by law. Q Research shows that Towery has consistently inlaid to disclose financial and personal conflicts of interest, and where he engaged in patterns and practices from the bench that serve to benefit himself , and others, in a manner that violates the law.
JUDGE PICHON- Complaints complied by Q shows that as Pichon acted as both Chair of the CJP and Presiding Judge of Santa Clara County that she engaged in conduct that failed to protect the public and allowed judges with mental impairment, incompetence, and conflicts of interest to harm thousands of Santa Clara County citizens.
JUDGE ZECHER - Complaints show that Zecher engaged in conduct that was nothing short of cronyism, which was ignored as she was appointed to the bench , and where her fellow judges and lawyers engaged in conduct to suppress individuals from exposing those conflicts, and damage caused by her incompetence.
JUDGE CHIARELLO- Judge Chairello has a long history of misogynist rulings, including those that contributed to the death of the young Allen girl, who was drugged , raped and killed by her father , after a mother tried to protect the child in a custody matter, Chairello denied fees for legal parity to the mother and awarded custody to the father, despite his history and background. After Allen was killed the county claimed they " missed the signs". they did not. Allen's father is currently facing criminal trial, as a self represented party. The county engaged in conduct then as it does now to manufacture false abuse claims and to ignore real claims that are dangerous threats in divorce and custody matters. Silencing women and children is par for the course in Judge Chairello's court, where Chairello was recently moved to replace Persky. and where gender bias, and the misogynistic philosophies that ignore violence and threats to women and children continue to be very real.
After two years of pressure from Q , Santa Clara County recently announced a new "Domestic Violence Court". Judge Bernardini is involved in this new effort, and was the only judge who made a proper ruling in the ray McDonald custody case. However, should Bernardini and others quickly fall into the patterns allowed by recently retired Mary Ann Grilli, and Commissioner Schroder, or by known chauvinist James Towery and misogynistic judicial philosophies like seen with Persky and Chiarello, , then change in our family courts is unlikely and millions of innocent parents and children will continue to suffer years of emotional harm and damage caused by the courts that were supposed to act as courts of equity where divorce and custody cases were at hand.
