Courts Closed: Judges Hold Midnight Hearings To Sell Off Properties in Probate and Innocent Spouse Cases
As mainstream media distracts the general public with presidential politics, and bogus stories sourced through divorce lawyers, California courts announce closures, as state court employees are being directed to reject court filings, back date ex court filings, shred documents and delay court reporter transcripts to secretly clear backlogs, and secure more state and federal funding in a post pandemic era.
Whistleblowers in state court management report police reform cries have dried up investment in private prisons, and peripheral services for the criminal justice system so court insiders are looking to find investments in private businesses that benefit from corrupt legal rulings in probate and family court. This includes investment in medical services for mental health programs funded by judges ordering psyche evaluations on parents involved in custody disputes, accounting services for complex divorce mattes, and reunification camps and services such as Rand Rand’s Family Bridges and programs related to Rececca Bailey and Mariam Gallindo. For years these businesses were building in secret as orders from private judges provided a steady stream of income. Now judges and court staff in need of supplementing their income are looking to expand their investment in these businesses, at the expense of harming families forced to access the courts in divorce, probate or CPS cases during the pandemic.
The Mitchell Papers have revealed a connection to a criminal defense attorney in Orange County whose client is reportedly linked to a hack that found backdoor downloads running to clear court backlogs and collect data from court files that is being sold to private companies in Silicon Valley and Orange County at an unprecedented rate. These companies are selling off data scraped from the court files by sole source contractors handling IT in family, probate and bankruptcy courts with a heavy focus on real estate, California’s golden vault. .
Using mainstream media in the Bay Area, Jim Hoover of the Hoover Krepelka law firm is working outside of court with charities and private businesses to attract Silicon Valley donors involved in divorce cases to invest in these businesses and secret the investments from a former spouse by holding funds in his trust or moving them through connections he holds on various advisory committees. Hoover's law firm , Hoover Krepelka , is located in San Jose, and routinuely teaches lawyers how to obstruct discovery during a divorce of custody case. Walter Hammon and his son Cory have been invovled in cases where judges and police officers have concealed serious fraud from not only an opposing spouse, but from the public as the cases are kept buried in sealed files, a tactic initiated by the infamous Phil Hammer while he was associated with the law firm Hoge Fenton.
In Orange County, attorneys Keith Dolnick, and David Erza, are reportedly working behind the scenes with Keith’s brother, Judge Jeremy Dolnick, to assure private judge David Weinberg, Judge Sarmiento, and Judge Gaffney orchestrate the transfer of data through private judge, arbitration and mediation services used in JAMS cases overseeing Silicon Valley’s and Southern California’s legal disputes where arbitration clauses are mandated in most user applications as well as attorney retainer agreements.
JAMS is a private judge- mediation and arbitration busienss that has expaned full throtle into divorce cases where information related to real estate, secutiries and private tech companies is secreted from the public and competitors when those assets are at the center of a divorce or custody case. Erika Jayne, the reality tv starfrom Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is reportedly lining up JAMS finest lawyers in her divorce from Thomas Giardi. The couple is reportedly shedding assets and real estate in thier divorce case as a shield for related bankrupcy and civil cases where Thomas' law firm, Giardi Keese, the firm depcited in the Erin Brocovich film, is facing bankruptcy and a flood of lawsuits from clients who were fleeced in recent years.
Thomas' brother has reportedly filed for conservatorship, claiming Thomas at 81 is no longer capable of making his own decisions after plundering most of the couple's wealth in recent years. Civil suits are being filed agianst the lawyer and his partners, along with a federal bankrupcy filing, all of which is complicating the divorce. JAMS insiders claim Ms. Jayne is getting help from lawyers at JAMS in protecting and concealing assets from plaintiffs in those suits.
During the pandemic, Judges in all California courts are pressuring litigants to use mediation and settlement options, where information is being secretly collected and stored through Zoom and Microsoft meetings. Judges prefer getting cases out of the courtrooms as the pandemic has resuled in their courtrooms being recorded on public access lines. Sharon Roper, who was brought into the Santa Clara County courts as former CEO David Yamasaki departed, is reportedly gathering information on real estate and securities involved in family law cases in Santa Clara where judges are sending her cases under the auspices of being a “Settlement Conference “ Officer.
Orange County CEO David Yamasaki, who was formerly in Santa Clara where he contracted much of California’s court IT sole source contractors, has been found to be brokering private investor and VC firm deals for private investments that will provide staggering returns for judges and their family members who invest in a manner that avoids financial disclosure laws. Yamasaki was reportedly stealing construction and landscape materials for his personal use during the building of the new county family courthouse. Court staff believed to have leaked information related to court corruption, are now being laid off or furloughted during the pandemic in retalation for reporting Yamasaki's theft.
According to the Mitchell Papers leaked by Santa Clara County family law attorney Elise Mitchell, Maggie Desmond of Hoge Fenton in San Jose, is curating lists of potential private donors obtained from court files secretly collected by court attorney Sharon Roper in settlement or private judging sessions. The information is being curated into lists of real estate holdings disclosed in all family and probate cases, that can be sold off by a single judge’s order. The lists show thousands of homes being sold off in the San Francisco Bay Area and Orange County communities for pennies on the dollar and secreted during court closures blamed on the pandemic.
As court insiders prepare for the end of the pandemic and courts are forced to reopen for business, a flood of unlawful detainer cases are expected to be bundled into loan packages for private investors willing to prey on the misfortune of those displaced from housing during a divorce, probate or custody dispute.
The Mitchell Papers link court CEO Rebecca Fleming more closely to the corruption. Fleming came to the courts in Santa Clara to replace Yamasaki back in 2017, as he moved to Orange County. Fleming was charged with silencing protestors, securing sole source IT contracts and plugging leaks from court employees with the help of the president of the Court Employee Association, who currently has a divorce and custody case in Santa Clara before Judge Towery. As that matter was pending, Fleming has reportedly used court employee information, with cross reference to social media accounts, to determine which employees might reach out to reporters or government officials to expose in a manner that would excpose the private investment scam.
Grandma’s House Get's Sold- Collusion with County Government
As counties across the state face financial troubles brought on the pandemic. new property tax laws in California will greatly shift wealth from families as counties begin taxing properties inherited when grandma and grandpa die. Courts are collecting Santa Clara County COVID data and court files to cross reference properties likely to be sold off in a probate or divorce case well in advance of unlawful detainer, tax liens or bank algorithms detect financial distress so these properties can be bundled as a preinvestment package. Data collected from these cross references are also alerting counites to programs that can detect potential revenue from code enforcement violations counties are using to cash in on revenue to fill budget shortfalls.
During the pandemic, courts are appearing to be largely closed, but judges are continuing to issue orders that remove families from properties in advance of those properties being bundled into loan and security packages for investors.
Criminal defense law firms, working through Monterey County attorney William Crawford, and Orange County lawyers, are reportedly orchestrating data collection through notices for court appearances that are being required by Zoom or audio access during the pandemic. Data from phones used to call into these proceedings is being collected by prosecutors and government lawyers where counties are required to provide legal services at taxpayer expense. These lists are being packaged for investors eyeing law firms shifting focus to white collar crimes, where prosecutions for these crimes are expected to increase following the recent US Capitol riots and summer protects related to Black Lives Matters, after being ignored for decades.
Los Altos based charity founder Ruth Patrick Darlene has been reportedly working with the ADZ law firm, Jim Hoover, Keith Dolnick, Mark Erickson, Debra Crawford, Nicole Ford, Sean Onderick and Bill Dresser, to collect data for real estate and security investors. Ruth has been collecting this data since 2009 when she invested $4 million, she took from a bank account prior to her own divorce case that was held before private judge Catherine Gallagher. Through JAMS, she is now actively linked to Orange County family courts and probation where she is generating referrals for lawyers in that area.
Aftrer using the $4 million Ruth stole from her ex-husband by making false domestic violence cliams against him, Ruth became indispensable to investors in Silicon Valley as she has spent the last 10 years gathering data from Silicon Valley’s most affluent families while operating a sham non- profit, WomenSV, a charity claiming to provide services for women involved in domestic violence matters in the area’s wealthiest communities. Ruth reached out to private businesses and real estate developers under the guise of seeking donations, when she was actually collecting data on the state’s wealthiest landowners and potential investors.
Data collected by Ruth has been used to point investors to distressed properties years before banks become aware of risky loans and commercial real estate investments. Ruth also was known to work with brokers on SEC matters that were secreted during family law matters handled by large firms during complex divorce cases.
In the name of “therapy “and support, Ruth, along with attorneys Nicole Ford, Sean Onderick , Elise Mitchell, David Patton and Jim Hoover have been rushing women claiming to be victims of domestic violence through the charity and private law firms where their assets are identies are sold off in “reinvestment packages "Ruth helps broker with the help of Los Altos based politicians, accountants and school administrators.
The recent presidential election has brought a change to party rule, with Democrats controlling the house, senate and White House. In California, the power grab for democrats is creeping through the courts and legal systems from Santa Clara, San Mateo, and San Francisco, to Orange and San Diego, areas that once were predominately Republican , but that are now being “displaced” as the new power regime weaves into the courts that are more political than lawful.
