Fired? Steven Moawad Leaves State Bar - Mark Peterson Disbarred One Year After Criminal Charges
If you wanted to drink the Kool-Aid the State Bar was serving up last year when James P. Fox and Leah Wilson gushed that former DDA Steven Moawad was the guy to discipline lawyers, you might first consider that Moawad has been named in a federal lawsuit and is being investigated as Joe Dunn (who was independently investigated), James Towery (who resigned as ethics charges caught up to him) and Gregory Dresser (who blackmailed top judges to get the CJP job), al were . The Bar has been unable to find and keep good lawyers, and all failed to protect the public for the last two decades.
Ironically, as Moawad became employed in the top Bar job, at $16,000 more than his female predecessor, his former boss , Mark Peterson, was facing a criminal indictment and was ultimately disbarred after investigative reporter Nat Gatrell started investigating Contra Costa County's District Attorney's Office.

Thanks Victoria Balfour!
As the Persky recall raged in Santa Clara County, few people noticed that in Iowa, an investigation arose because of a judge's divorce case. That investigation revealed that a judge had been allowing "winning" attorneys to draft orders in a manner that caused the judge to improperly decide over a dozen cases.
That same conduct has been occurring in California divorce and probate cases for the last decade, and now a similar investigation is turning to judges and lawyers in Santa Clara, and Contra Costa counties, where local prosecutors have ignored complaints from victims involved in domestic violence and fraud.
The highly contested recall is starting a conversation about women who make false allegations and real victims being ignored by the legal system. More importantly, attention is now turning to judges and lawyers involved in what is reportedly a deeply broken system, dominated by a few very corrupt individuals disguised as lawyers and judges.
Divorce papers of Judge Ed Weil, and other controversial judges, show that Aaron Persky was part of a culture that decimates women in their places of work, their homes and legal affairs. Weil's former wife was pro per, as are 90% of folks in California's divorce cases, and all signs point to Weil using the Contra Costa courts in a manner that victimized the mother of his children, a pattern woven throughout his orders in probate and family court.
Contra Costa County Judge Bruce Mills, disciplined at least 5 times, was ultimately the subject of an investigation that will likely see him removed from the bench, saving Contra Costa tax payers the expense of a recall as the CJP does their job for the first time in decades.
FOLLOWING THE MONEY IN THE PERSKY RECALL
The Persky recall is breathing new life into FPPC investigations based on the legal bills of James McManis, and the endorsements made by Jeff Rosen, the "granddaddy" of endorsements in Silicon Valley.
The recall was successful because Persky was part of a culture that men and women in Santa Clara County were no longer willing to tolerate.
Voters have had enough of Injustice
Victims who successfully recalled Judge Aaron Persky just one week ago have already begun planning their next move. This time #metoo will be joined by #himtoo as men and women take on Santa Clara County's most powerful elected official....... Jeff Rosen.
The Sunday following the recall, Ms. Dauber vowed she was far from finished, and those close to her claim she has set her sights on making sure Santa Clara County Sheriff Candidate Hirakawa does not succeed Sheriff Laurie Smith. Dauber is also reportedly working with a well funded group determined to recall and prosecute Jeff Rosen, the prosecutor who flipped on Emily Doe and supported Persky during the recall campaigns.
Jeff Rosen's wife, Amber Rosen, was recently elevated to Santa Clara County's family court bench, and like Persky's replacement, DDA Cindy Hendrickson, all eyes are watching these women to see if they are able to shed their prosecutorial mindset when assigned to family court.
An investigative report set to be released following the July 4th holiday alleges that Rosen has been looting from state and federal funds earmarked for victims like Emily Doe, who Rosen is outright failing.
Victim Looting: Jeff Rosen Steals From Victims
Rosen used others to do his dirty work, as seen in leaked emails Rosen had indirectly sent to the San Jose Mercury, the Metro News and Bay Area News Service, as he paid pricy reputation services to scrub information from 2008 -2017 that could have ended his career:
A recent plea on Patch.com shows that Rosen has many more victims than Emily Doe and is selectively prosecuting people who make false allegations.
Public Records from California's Office of Emergency Services show Rosen has been looting from the state and federal money that tax payers pay to protect and support victims of sexual assault, rape, domestic violence and other violent crimes.
Rosen's Victim Looting has outraged leaders in the #metoo movement, and local tax payers who are calling for Rosen's removal.
In addition to a #RecallJeffRosen campaign, set to launch in the coming months, based on a #VictimLooting platform, local residents are planning a class action lawsuit poised to be attack Santa Clara County ,and Jeff Rosen individually, for wasting taxpayer funds, and for misusing the DA's Office, where Marsy's Law demands the protection of victims, and the prosecution of false claims that serve to harm real victims.
Do Judges Hear the Victims Yet?
James McManis has profited from the rape culture in Santa Clara County for years, and he was the major donor for the No on Persky Recall Campaign that went down in flames on June 5th is Santa Clara County.
On one side of the recall where judges and lawyers who vowed to keep the "independence ' of the judiciary. This side was led by former Santa Clara County judge La Doris Cordell, who was not very nice to the protestors on the other side, showing the judge culture still runs deep in her veins.
On the other side, the Recall Persky side, were moms, a few dads, and an army on social media. An army that is fed up with a judiciary that was anything other than impartial and independent. An army La Doris Cordell and the aging judiciary were ill prepared to face in a local election.
POOR PERSKY? NOT !
Yes, Persky had a family. Yes, Persky was a nice guy. Yes, Persky was one of the county's smartest and best judges, but Judge Aaron Persky was still part of a Judge Culture that voters and the #metoo movement said must go.
Before he went though Persky, who could have retired , cost Santa Clara County tax payers over $5 million dollars in security, recall ballots and other costs merely to make a point for the judiciary. A point he will never make now that he is the first Superior Court judge to be recalled in California after 86 years.
Persky will forever be linked to his ruling in the sentencing of Brock Turner. Persky will live out his days with that being his judicial legacy. His children will see it, and his family will feel the financial pinch that all families who were trapped in Persky's court felt for years. When Persky's grandchildren look him up on line, they will see the recall, the protests and perhaps they will see where history changed in California's courts.
Persky loses his $150,000 a year pension, but more importantly he loses the millions he could have made working at JAMs and as a private judge, referee or Special Master.
Some say Persky will not lose and that law firms like McManis Faulkner are already cashing in on hopes of getting Persky assigned in complex cases.
The issue that failed to come out before the election, was related to Persky's rulings in family court. That is where Persky was seduced into the culture of criminal activity that would eventually be his downfall in the recall election.
Judge Persky oversaw the Wahl v Perkins case, a case where divorce attorney Bradford Baugh was disqualified, but Persky never appears to have reported Baugh, as Canon 3D2 required. And while attorney misconduct appears to run rampant in Santa Clara, very few judges ever do anything about it. Persky has personal knowledge of lawyer and judge crimes, and ironically, Persky is the one being tossed from the bench, not the criminal judges and family law attorneys.
As the judges and lawyers who endorsed the No on Persky Recall scratch their heads in amazement, several fractions of the Persky Recall are turning their attention to District Attorney Jeff Rosen, who is said to have known about Antitrust activity in Santa Clara County divorce cases that serves to harm women and children, and he did nothing.
SOLANO COUNTY MOVES JUDGES - #METOO!
Santa Clara had the signs ........and media attention, but a small group of women who are true warriors continue to impeach and recall bad judges who are violating rights where children are concerned.
These moms, labeled a "MOB", have had enough and are supporting each other in court watching, letter writing and yes, that dirty deed, protesting.
Soon all judges will learn they just might want to start worrying about social media and protestors because they are not going away.
Trying to get DA Jeff Rosen to worry about the crimes Mary Ann Grilli, James Towery, Nat Hales, James Mc Manis, Bradford Baugh , and countless others committed in divorce and custody cases, is point less. So Jeff Rosen is about to see what voters have planned for him.
Molly O'Neal, of Santa Clara County's Public Defender's office, called victims who supported the recall of Judge Persky a "Mob". Funny, look at the MOB in Solano County, they look more like a group of moms angry at judges who took their children, for no legal reason.
Bye Bye Persky. Bye Bye Carringer.
Who is next in 2018? Still time to recall or impeach judges, the DA and the politicians who protect them over protecting victims and children.
San Jose, CA - June 5, 2018- All around local schools, banks and businesses, people are talking about how they will vote on the issue of recalling Judge Persky this coming Tuesday, June 5th. . Also up for discussion is the highly contested Sheriff's race, and elections for Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. The election has brought moms, and dads, out in droves to protest local government and courts.
Maria Hernandez, a virtual unknow, is running for Santa Clara County Supervisor District 4, out of frustration based on how women and whistleblowers have been treated in Silicon Valley for decades. District 5, Mike Wasserman's seat is up for grabs, and Wasserman is reportedly facing a scandal related to sexual abuse and harassment in his local Synagogue, Shir Hadash.
Judge Persky became the subject of a recall vote following his light sentencing of Brock Turner in the Sandford Sexual Assault case. The recall is being led by Stanford's Professor Dauber, but has brought women out in droves to protest on the streets, speak in local Supervisor's meetings, and campaign to reform a local judiciary that is biased toward women, children, the elderly and the poor.
As the world focused on the light sentence Persky was inclined to give Turner, following a jury conviction, campaigns on social media that included; Change.org, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram began to expose that Persky is not alone.
Few people know that Persky merely adopted a probation report (reportedly issued by a woman) , and in doing so did nothing legally wrong. For mothers of sons, the ruling , and the life long designation as a registered sex offender was punishment enough for Brock Turner, but for others, Persky rubberstamping the probation report was similar to his rubber stamping of custody and vocational reports in family court, where Antitrust and RICO activity appears to be alive and well.
The Persky recall has sharply divided Santa Clara County residents. On one side, the judges and lawyers, led by La Doris Cordell, call for independence of the judiciary. On the other side, moms, dads, teachers, bankers, and others who are fed up with how courts are treating people, making the local courts more about lawyer popularity than the law.
An independent judiciary seems to be a farce where this year's election is concerned. Local judges have been lining up for their 15 mins. of fame trying to get the media spotlight.
A recently leaked email appears to indicate judges, and corrupt insider, seeking to unseat Sheriff Laurie Smith may also be getting some help from Sean Webby, a former reporter from the San Jose Mercury, who now is employed as the Public Information Officer for the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.
A flurry of negative press appears to be connected to Jeff Rosen, through, the San Jose Mercury News, where rumors abound that . Smith has reportedly refused to play ball with Rosen in recent years. This appears to be especially true in high profile cases involving 49er football players, and teen suicide, where Rosen has advanced his career, and that of his wife's, Amber Rosen, who was recently appointed to the Santa Clara County Family Law Bench.
Persky is no doubt part of a white male culture that has made women a commodity through local court rulings in Santa Clara County in recent years, a culture that just might not last so long if the #METOO movement has anything to say about it.
HARPER CAUGHT: SILICON VALLEY DIVORCE RACKETEERING SCHEME
Washed up former teacher turned corrupt vocational examiner, Tim Harper, has been used by divorce lawyers engaged in Antitrust activity to get pro se litigants imputed with income in a manner that helps select divorce clients avoid child and spousal support.
Investigative reporters ambushed Harper in a recent vocational exam. Video of the exam demonstrate how Harper falsifies reports to the court in order to obtain favorable rulingings for a core group of divorce lawyers. Harper's old reports benefited former prosecutors during their private divorce cases, as was done for controversial government attorney Alan Nudelman.
Harper may be single handedly responsible for thousands of children in Silicon Valley being under supported, as Harper himself pimps out his own son who sports a flagging high school baseball career.
Harper appears to be part of a complex money laundering scheme and underground economy where he has illegally obtained court transcripts, and taken cash bribes to rig reports in family court.
Local lawyers tout Harper as an honest man, believable by judges, yet transcripts of Harper's testimony show he is willing to illegally spy and secretly record those he interviews, where he additionally appears willing to commit perjury to benefit his regular divorce lawyer clients.
Harper has been reportedly estranged from his own wife at times, as investigators close in on his love for fancy sports cars, and membership at the San Jose Country Club as not adding up to the income reported on his IRS returns.
Harper has commonly made upwards $20,000 from lawyers in Santa Clara County while violating privacy rights for clients of lawyers engaged in Antitrust and RICO activity.
The FBI and Attorney General are reviewing if Harper is in fact part of an innocent monopoly that has been ripping off single parents and kids for over two decades.
Lilia Luciano of ABC 10 in Sacramento is the first mainstream media reporter to dive into problems in California's divorce and custody matters, exposing the problems in family court and with CPS workers and court appointed experts.
Perhaps the greatest loss of trust in our legal system is bubbling in family court issues, where courtrooms have become modern day popularity contests overseen by incompetent and overworked judges. False claims of abuse, the lack of judges following the law and abusive parents who conceal abuse with high paid divorce lawyers and experts are the problem.
In CPS cases people without money or education often find their children susceptible to federal funding that encourages CPS workers to get children into the system and placed in foster care.
Lilia has featured pioneers in the family court reform movement from Kathleen Russell of the Commission on Judicial Excellence, Joe Sweeney of Center for Modern Courts and Family Court Legal Custody expert Robin Yeamans of Campbell, California. Parents including Shane Down from social media #NOTYOURRIGHT to Kathey Lester, a retired federal court processor are also being covered by Lilia who is diving deep into social media to find the truth.
Michelle Chan, a writer and mom who lost her child to a corrupt CPS process, has worked with folks like social media guru Jenny Wells and Cathy Cohen to get these stories out to mainstream media.
(Lilia is reportedly a Jane and John Q Public regular reader, as are many underground lawyers sympathetic to the family court reform movement.)
At the heart of the issue is money and corruption. Family courts in California have been largely ignored by state lawmakers and judicial managers. The State Bar has been a runaway train, failing to discipline lawyers who use family law cases to create an underground economy that benefits themselves. In today's modern courts property is no longer simply divided as lawyers use domestic violence to loot from victims and where abusers can buy verdicts that allow them to continue to emotionally and financially abuse, or intimate, partners who try to escape, or expose, the abuse.
The modern judge appears more prone to rule to benefit lawyers they favor, or CPS and other Family Court Service workers who help judges keep a lid on dissent.
In Santa Clara County, Family court service workers have been pointing investigative reporters like Luciano to problems and corruption in the system.
In San Francisco CPS victims have joined with family court victims and organized large protests, created music and art, and used social media to investigate corruption that is harming families and children.
Transparency and public attention will be the key to undoing the damage done in secret courts and confidential reports that are designed to profit a select few yet that act to harm so many children. The story will be told in mainstream and social media with off shoots of creative music, art and film that seek to expose the problem in our modern family courts.
Sexual Assault Legal Expert Robert Allard and his wife are no longer welcome in the charming Willow Glen community of San Jose California, thanks to a local movement designed to put an end to sexual assault of young girls and women.
Allard, has been known in Santa Clara County as a bumbling lawyer who used his connections with Judge Stuart Scott and District Attorney Jeff Rosen to land cases as a clean up lawyer for the Catholic Church, the Los Gatos Jewish community and the infamous cyberbullying case involving the suicide of Audrie Pott, which many report Rosen used to build his political career.
But in mid May,fueled in part by local activism rising from teachers in public and private schools, Allard was sent packing after residents at a Town Hall meeting informed Allard he wasn't welcome after he chose to represent Presentation High School in the midst of another Catholic Church sex scandal. Whistleblowers from Presentation high don't trust Allard to do the right thing and claim the schools principal knew of the abuse and ignored it, despite being a mandated reporter.
Criminal files in Santa Clara County show Allard not only had a close relationship with DA Jeff Rosen that landed Allard some of the county's most high profile cases,, Allard may have worked with Rosen in a manner to silence victims in order to promote political campaigns, including those of Supervisor Mike Wasserman and Jeffery Rosen.
See redacted settlement documents relating to sexual assault victim of Shir Hadash, covered up by Rabbi Aron who was in a supervisorial position for Silicon Valley Faces, the victim's protection agency funded with state and federal funds and operated by Santa Clara County as Jeff Rosen lobbied to get the organization in his department in 2015.
Rosen , whose wife Aber was recently elevated to the bench is reported to have used Allard to deflect attention from sexual assault that Rosen knew existed at both Presentation High , and Shir Hadash, the Jewish Synagogue that helped Rosen get elected.
Leaked documents show Rabbi Arron of Shir Hadash privately negotiated with Bob Allard to pay $500,000 to a victim of sexual assault surrounding Shir Hadash's school .
Presentation High School students are coming out in droves to explain the sexual assault they suffered from as Jeff Rosen and Rabbi Aron, who was in charge of the county's victim service at the time these young women were allegedly assaulted, and Aron reportedly worked to keep it, and abuse in her own Synagogue silent and out of the pubic eye.
It is believed these young women, and others like them will be responsible for getting Judge Persky removed from the bench in the upcoming local elections.
Ironically, the day following the town hall meeting, Michael Lazarin, the biological father of Audrie Pott, who claims the Santa Clara County DA and Sheriffs hid domestic violence Audrie allegedly suffered at the hands of her mother and step father, reportedly ambush interviewed Smith demanding to know why she had not investigated domestic violence, which was known and reported to the Los Altos police. Lazarin;s video ambush of controversial Sheriff Laurie Smith has gone viral on Facebook.
Smith, who reportedly lives in the Rose Garden area of San Jose, near controversial judge James Towery and his former prosecutor wife, was reportedly stunned by the ambush interview and had no idea what to say. Lazarin is taking wagers that Smith will not call him back after reviewing Audrie's psychological reports. See here for the reports.

Walnut Creek, CA- On May 8, 2018, dads, grandmas, nurses and moms with baby strollers brought out the dogs and the media because they have had enough of bad judges, corrupt lawyers, indifferent CPS workers and cops threatening to take away toy megaphones.
ABC 7 , ABC 10 Sacramento, CBS, KTVU and anonymous bloggers were there to capture what surely was the largest and most unexpected family court protest in California's history.
The passionate protest began on a sunny spring morning in the quintessential suburb of Walnut Creek, California. Protestors connected in advance through social media then dawned with signs, shirts and megaphones, they drove from as far away as Yuba County and Santa Clara to join Contra Costa parents demanding the removal of Judge Jill Fannin and Judge Hardie. They demanded changes to CPS and they demanded dishonest lawyers be disbarred.
Prior to the March the group gathered, put finishing touches on hand made signs, and shared their stories. As the speakers told tales of CPS workers ripping children from good homes, and parents without criminal records being placed on supervised visitation with their own children, reporters grappled with the disconnect they experienced after having been told for decades these people were simply disgruntled, crazy, abusive and vexatious.
The protest was not violent, as Judge Lucas has historically told the press to justify unconstitutional orders that have provided for her to justify arresting two family court reform activists in the weeks leading up to the epic Contra Costa protest on May 8th. In fact in Contra Costa, the Walnut Creek police, and the Contra Costa Sheriff supported the protestors with escorts, support and refusal to arrest, where the Santa Clara County Sheriff use threats and intimidation as a matter of routine.
Santa Clara County Moms who are demanding the removal of Judge Pegg, Judge Chiarello, Judge Scott, Judge Persky and Judge Towery rocked shirts noting #childrenslivesmatter and joined Scott the Protester in the Board of Supervisors chambers the following day for public comment before Supervisor Chavez and Cotese.
Finally, Scott Largent stood with hundreds of others, on court property, using amplified devices and shouting deafening demands for bad judges, lawyers and CPS workers to be fired. Conduct that had gotten Scott Largent arrested, which was documented on videos that went live on Facebook and viral on YouTube. Videos that will be used on the internet to show Patricia Lucas' children what she really does as a judge.
Nurses, social workers and others who started the day in masks, say they felt free to take their masks off and join the crowd because mainstream media finally came to call where family court issues were concerned.
Noted in the crowd were Joe Sweeney, Court Reformer credited with attacking the Commission on Judicial Performance, and megaphone darling, Michelle Chan, dubbed mother of the CPS accountability movement.
Throughout the day tales of false domestic violence and ignored child abuse ripped through the crowd and the event reached its mot passionate moments as the crowd faced the courthouse and screamed for justice to the judges and court staff who hid inside.
On May 9th several parents from the protests made public comments to the Santa Clara County Supervisors Cindy Chavez and Dave Cortese, trying to explain what it is like to have domestic violence ignored and to have indifferent judges ordering good parents to be put on Supervised Visitation based on involvement of a few corrupt lawyers such as Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Nicole Ford and Elise Mitchell.
Comments brought many members of the audience to tears after Michael Lazarin explained how the community ignored domestic violence prior to his daughter Audrie Pott committing suicide in 2012 and where moms described how judge Pegg and Judge Drew Takaichi abused their power as judges to take their children away without cause, and with incentive to pay favored lawyers.
The protests and public comment have launched an investigation into if District Attorney Jeff Rosen, Rabbi Aron from the Shir Hadash congregation in Los Gatos. and Mike Wasserman, ignored domestic violence that served to harm Michael Lazarin's daughter Audrie Pott, and others like her.
At the same time, Rosen was known for deterring victims of sexual assault perpetrated by rabbis in the Los Gatos community, with the help of Rabbi Aron. An investigation is also underway to determine if Supervisor Mike Wasserman acted for the benefit of his political career.. These cases show tax payer money intended for victims was redirected through Silicon Valley Faces, and the Shir Hadash congregation in Los Gatos, which appears to have been covered up a 2012 sexual assault scandal that completely violated CCAR's Code of Ethics and that let sexual predators remain in the town of Los Gatos.
Protestors will return on Tuesday May 15, 2018 and this time will meet at the Santa Clara County Building located at 70 West Hedding in San Jose at 9:30am , where they will call on the media and demand changes in CPS, Child Support and family court.
The Only Thing More Dangerous than Lots of Money, is Having Nothing Left to Lose!
CPS and indifferent judges need only look in the mirror on May 8, 2018,. as hundreds of batshit crazy, disgruntled litigants, and parents denied custody of their own children will descend on Walnut Creek's Civic Center to demand change.
Parents are coming from Sacramento (#notyourright) and Santa Clara County ( #freeScotttheProtestor) to demand changes in the state's family courts.
The have been painting signs, posting on social media and ordering t-shirts to make sure their message is heard.
ABC 7 and KRON, along with a host of print reporters will be on hand learning the person survival stories involving good parents and children trapped in CPS, foster care and our family courts.
Sanctions- False Charges- DVRO- Parental Alienation are all on topic for the day as Judge Fannin, and Judge Lucas sit by, nervously aware such protests could end their career.
Retaliation being very real, protestors may wear clothing to disguise their identity and to avoid the harassment and intimidation Santa Clara County routinely imposed.
Protesting and picketing parents intend to return to Santa Clara County to keep protesting complicit judges and cash greedy lawyers.
The March starts at 10:15 am at the Walnut Creek Civic Center.

Dark Money: Keith Dolnick Caught on Facebook
Divorce attorney Keith Dolnick shot to instant fame with the ruling from Napa County in Hayward v. Superior Court. However, leaked documents and secret recordings show Dolnick's win may have more to do with his connections to Los Gatos' Jewish community than his legal skill.
Sure, Dolnick won a case that set private judging and referees on notice, but the ruling was a legal goldmine that brought Dolnick to Santa Clara County through court CEO David Yamasaki and court counsel Lisa Herrick, a former partner at McManis Faulkner.
Mc Manis Faulkner is the clean- up lawyer for Santa Clara County. James McManis often takes cases to give the appearance he is fighting against the Sheriff and agencies that won't give up public records, but McManis is actually a clean up lawyer. A lawyer who writes settlements to hide sexual predators, pedophiles and liars in family court cases.
Dolnick, who has been secretly recorded by countless women in Orange County, who did not get the same outcome that Ms. Hayward had to pay $3,000,000 to get.was reportedly brought into the family court mafia group by attorney James McManis Lisa Herrick and Robert Allard, where Dolnick was told he would see cases thrown his way if he agreed to play ball with the "in crowd" in Santa Clara County. Kael Briski and Steve Werth also were reportedly brought in through JAMS lawyers in San Francisco, who do not want private judging restricted.
McManis is reportedly the middleman who acts for District Attorney Jeff Rosen working overtime to try to block a recall movement of Judge Persky, who is also linked to the Los Gatos Jewish community through Shir Hadash, a congregation that reportedly offered $500,000 to cover up alleged sexual abuse of Rabbi Steve Kaplan as Rabbi Melanie Aron influenced elections as a kickback to Rosen and Judge Persky.
David Yamasaki, court CEO, is ground zero for public corruption in both Orange County and Santa Clara . Yamasaki reportedly brought Dolnick into what is being called the Jewish Family Court Mafia, connected to the building of the controversial Santa Clara County courthouse. Court clerks and members of anonymous reported two years ago that Yamasaki, with the help of Lisa Herrick, formerly of Mc Manis Faulkner, was reportedly stealing palm trees and other construction materials as kickbacks for family court judges and lawyers during the planning and construction of the new family courthouse in San Jose, which has become the stage for family court protests.
Ironically, Dolnick is on record for telling his clients NOT to use Facebook, while he uses Facebook to expand a network of lawyers who are drafting settlements and JAMS mediation agreements that cover up sexual harassment, abuse and pedophilia for the lawyers and judges part of the Jewish community based in Los Gatos.
Critics point to Dolnick's legal record and success as mirroring that of Elkins lawyer Garrett Dailey. Dailey was allowed to win an important case against a local rule used in Contra Costa County family courts, a win that was designed to appease pro per litigants growing restless over unfair family court proceedings.
Dailey did little for pro pers and instead built a career appealing cases for some of the most criminal family law attorneys in California, while gaining favor with the Judicial Council- the agency that manages the court finances in the state.
Dolnick's Clients Leak Secret Recordings: Reveal Dark Money Divorces
Dolnick's clients who lost custody of their children and their fair share of community property in a divorce case before private judges like attorney David Weinberg, Michael Reedy, Richard Roggia and Nat Hales have been secretly recording Dolnick to prove he selectively acted as ineffective counsel while working to protect elite rings of pedophiles and abusers, many hiding in the Jewish legal community.
Leaked documents and an independent audit shows governmental lawyers like Ann Ravel assisted in case rigging and operation of an underground economy of "dark money" that was fueled by the conversion of community property in high conflict divorce cases throughout California. Dark money operations are fueled with money converted from families engaged in divorce and laundered through organizations like UC Berkeley and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, for the benefit of lawyers drafting secret settlements and working to discredit those who may expose criminal activity that protects pedophiles and abusers lurking in Silicon Valley communities.
Dolnick's link to Ann Ravel through the Los Gatos community is especially alarming considering Ravel's power and influence over California's Judiciary and as a law professor at UC Berkeley.
Videos and Facebook Live Catch Judges and Sheriffs
SAN JOSE, CA - Scott Largent has given over 2000 public comments trying to get Santa Clara County's Board of Supervisors to pay attention to the county's family courts. sheriffs and biased judges. Few people can believe that Largent was arrested for simply exercising his most basic First Amendment rights.
As Tracey Kaplan from the San Jose Mercury reported: IT IS TRUE
During a May Day Family Court Protest, Mothers who have not seen their own children for over 4 years, Native American grandmothers fighting to keep CPS from giving their grandchildren to foster care, and other fathers raped by the family court system joined Scott Largent, as they do every Tuesday morning to picket, leaflet and protest what biased judges are allowing to happen in modern day divorce and custody battles.
On May 1, 2018 Scott Largent began his dissent when he sounded the alarm once again, informing Cindy Chavez, Ken Yeager, Mike Wasserman, Joe Simitian and government attorney James Williams that women are facing unprecedented harm in the county's courts and Patricia Lucas's unconstitutional order was designed to silence them.
Two hours after the meeting, Largent joined other activists and protesters, and was singled out and arrested by Santa Clara County Sheriff Rey and Duty Gomez, both the subject of Internal Affairs investigations for retaliation.
Two weeks earlier protesters from Silicon Valley's DeBug had done the same, but were left alone, as a non-profit supported by county, state and federal public funds.
Pressure from mainstream media, including calls from Lillia Luciano from ABC 10, NBC's Gonzalo Rojas, Metro's Jennifer Wadsworth and San Jose Mercury's Tracey Kaplan reportedly caught the cops redhanded and Largent's charges were reduce from a Penal Code 148 (resisting arrest) , to only the violation of what many are calling Judge Lucas' unconstitutional faux order.
Largent has famously referred to the order as "Butt Wipe" and "Lucas's fake order"
Over 10 protesters caught Largent's arrest on video and live Facebook feeds, the video shows Sargent Rey talking via phone to Judges Clark, Lucas, Towery and Stuart, all insisting Largent be arrested " to make an example out of him and scare other parents."
Judges Breaking the Law in their Administrative Capacity
Judge Michael Clark heads the county's Domestic Violence Committee, and has repeatedly violated the Brown and Open Government Act while doing so, but Clark is more infamous for his rulings against Kathey Fyke in the most corrupt Sixth District Court of Appeal case, Falcone and Fyke. In that case, Lucas also shows her true colors by claiming Fkye was not believable as she nearly died of a heart condition when for4ced into family court where her properties were taken, she was declared vexatious and sanctioned over $1,000,000. Such cases are typical of family court rulings against women in Silicon Valley.
All Santa Clara County Judges have been under fire since Judge Persky's ruling in the Stanford rape case, and after Judge Chiarello failed to protect a mother and her daughter, which resulted in the daughter being drugged, raped and killed by her own father.
Courts and County Misuse State and Federal Grants
Court insiders report that "Kimberly" , from Family Court Services acted as a lookout to alert judges when Largent arrived to the protest and assisted judges and sheriffs in trying to identify if protective moms like Catherine Campbell were among the protesters. Inside information shows Lucas insisted on Largent;s arrest, to keep him from finally visiting with his daughter, a visitation two years in the making, and made possible with state and federal grant money. Attorney Heather Allan, known for outright abuse and bill padding is reportedly working with Lucas and other family court judges to prevent Largent from seeing his daughter, as punishment for his activism.
In the end, Kaplan's coverage changed the game, but it may be anonymous blogs and websites, along with over 30,000 anonymous people on Facebook who ultimately change California's Family Courts as wildly successful investigative reports hit ABC 10 in Sacramento and set Twitter and other social media on fire and mainstream media climbs onboard with watchdogging California's Family Courts.
Secret Recording: Lawyer Laughs at Stealing Money for Bogus Defense
Taxpayers are angry over a series of secret recordings that show how criminal lawyers are overbilling after being appointed in criminal and family court cases, which is widely ignored by mainstream media.
Ironically, the LA Times has just reported Californians spend more than a Harvard education each year to keep kids in jail, while Tennessee commits to providing free education to youth in that state.
Angry parents, and criminal defendants, are taking to secret recordings to catch their thieves that are at the root of the problem, even when the crooks are their own lawyers.
This video catches a lawyer laughing about all the money he bills to Santa Clara County, while refusing to work as directed to disqualify a biased judge. The lawyer even refuses to allow his client to fire him, laughing at all the money he bills for services he never provides.
In family courts an unprecedented number of lawyers are being appointed in divorce and custody cases to act as referees, special masters, and lawyers for children.
Lawyers Payback Judges Who Appoint Them
In turn, court appointed lawyers make contributions to judge election campaigns, or anti- recall campaigns as is the case with Judge Persky in Santa Clara County.
See: San Jose Mercury article
See: Jeff Rosen sits on both sides of Persky Recall
As the world focuses on Persky in one criminal case, hundreds of parents are coming forward to expose Persky's harmful errors as a former prosecutor. Others are focusing on how Persky harmed families in divorce cases , while appointing many of the lawyers now donating to keep him on the bench.
More alarming is Rosen's support for Persky, after pretending to support victims as he was up for reelection. Women like Emily Doe, the victim in the Stanford rape case, claim Persky and other judges like him, have ignored the treatment of women in family and criminal courts for decades.
Parents fed up with excessive billing of divorce lawyers and worthless lawyers representing children, are using social media, and secret communications to record unethical lawyers that the State Bar has ignored for decades. See State Bar's latest discipline report, shows little change.
Lawyers often threaten that secret recordings are unlawful, but parents are using a host of secret recording devices to document attorney misconduct and public corruption in the legal system.
YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat and other social media sites are being used to spread the word about unethical lawyers and their unscrupulous billing practices.
As the State Bar faces continued pressure to disbar bad lawyers, the media continues to tread lightly, and social media rebels and hackers get the recordings out through secret drops, Proton and Signal.

As ABC news and local Patch news in Campbell, CA begin to explain what parents in family courts continue to face, Santa Clara County Sheriffs continue to harass and threaten parents protesting court judges, lawyers and CPS workers keeping children from their own parents in what appears to be divorce and custody case rigging of the worst kind.
Moms who have not seen their kids for 4 years, Scott the Protestor who was arrested for for his activism and after wearing a Princess dress and carrying a #DADSLivesMatters sign when he was kept from his daughter's first birthday party, continue to be harassed, singled out, threatened and retaliated against in Santa Clara County.
Sheriff Laurie Smith, to please Judge Patricia Lucas and District Attorney Jeff Rosen continues to send law enforcement officers out to identify and single out parents for arrest.
Parents point to self-representation and a system acting to protect lawyers and judges over children and families, particularly where attorneys are appointed to represent children or one parent and the other parent has no lawyer. Lawyers Heather Allan, Leah Amini, Bradford Baugh, Rebekah Frye and Valerie Houghton are just such lawyers in Santa Clara County, and more are being identified in San Mateo, Contra Costa, Monterey and Orange County.
County lawyers and elected officials have known of these issues and refuse to protect victims, or investigate improper governmental activity.
Parents with no contact with their own children are not backing down. Protests are regularly embarrassing family court judges in Sacramento, Contra Costa and Santa Clara County.

Grandparents and parents stripped from their families and children by order of family court judges have had enough and ABC10 news is about to see the power of these folks that have been branded crazy and disgruntled by judges in California who grew a little too comfortable forgetting the law and fairness.
Santa Clara County Sheriffs, under Laurie Smith, continue to need a civics lesson as they continue to take names and threaten parents with arrest, the groups are only growing stronger.
A live Facebook Feed of interviews with ABC10 and court reform activists Joe Sweeney and Kathleen Russell went viral in the first few hours it was on social media. Over 1000 pissed off people commented and hundreds of shares will reach the eyes of children to let them know they are not forgotten. Mainstream media is about to get a lesson in the power of social media where parents have plenty of time since the courts took their children.
Tireless parents like Patrick Glynn who is posting the video on YouTube, hope Parental Alienation Day, April 25,2018 and ABC news covering family court issues will bring about change. Glynn has generously donated his time and money to bring awareness to the fact that family courts are depriving parents and children from relationships they deserve.
Meanwhile, parents in Santa Clara County picketing, and protesting parents are not deterred by overzealous cops. The group of 50 will continue to grow and plans to picket and protest every Tuesday from 10-noon, or beyond, even in the face of arrest by crooked cop gone bad: Deputy Solorio.

FAMILY COURT UPDATE : JUDGE CARRINGER IMPEACHMENT PROCESS BEGINS.
They have been called "disgruntled", "not credible", "vexatious" and "not fit" to raise their own children, yet these parents have pressed against injustice and fought to protect their children as judges wrapped in immunity placed these parents on supervised visits, appointed unethical lawyers to represent their children and recommend denial of custody.
As these parents left abusive marriages and relationships, they faced more abuse than ever and nobody told the parents, they were entitled to help from California's Victim's Compensation Fund, a fund that considers parents deprived of the custody of their own children to be victims based on Child Abduction Act.
Years of facing judges entrenched with the belief they could take children away from good parents, and place them in the sole custody of parents who are more than likely abusers, these parents had enough.
The wrote to the Commission on Judicial Performance and they attended hearings to get that Commission to do their job.
They rented tradeshow space to warn others in their community and they bought t-shirts, business cards and websites to support a mission law makers refused to address.
They lodged Solano County Recall Petitions that got Judge Cynda Riggins-Unger and Judge Garry Ichikawa to ride off into government sponsored retirement, but when Judge Christine Carringer refused to go, they took to the option of impeachment themselves.
These parents are not backing down. They have the support of other victims, and a local press doing its job to present the facts. There is a novel idea, the press in our communities reflecting the people, and not the story the PR firms judges hire to create their own FAKE NEWS about our legal system. ( See email from PR firm hired by judges to shut these parents up).
Like the favorite children's book, The Little Engine That Could, these parents are proving that love for their children, desire to protect all children from harm and passion to change the attitudes of a deeply biased and entitled California judiciary may prevail after all.

Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen has used his Jewish background to advance his political career, while covering up secret deals that protect some of California's most powerful lawyers, judges and pedophiles.
Many whom Rosen is protecting belong to the Synagogue and Jewish Community Center in Los Gatos, where Rosen associates.
While pandering to the press and covering up scandals in Silicon Valley's jails (killing of Michael Tyree), Rosen used tax payer money to travel to Germany, drove in fancy Mercedes and padded overtime accounts of prosecutors earning over $350,000 a year with secret accounting practices ( as reported by NBC investigates) .
New information has come to light showing that Rosen has also been padding Victim/Witness Services and has to explain what he did with over $50,000,000 while he offered victims no services state and federal grants offered to provide.
Molesting Little Boys:
Like the Catholic Church Scandal, Jeff Rosen has known that men in affluent Los Gatos, connected to Rosen through the local Jewish community, have been serially molesting little boys in programs sponsored by the Los Gatos Jewish Community Center. These rings also appear to be operating in the Palo Alto Jewish Community Center.
Rosen has assisted with secret deals to protect some of the most influential Jewish families in Silicon Valley, with law firms that include Hoge Fenton and McManis Faulkner, that draft settlement deals like those discovered in the Catholic Church scandal uncovered by the Boston Globe in 2009.
Rosen has failed to protect children in Los Gatos Little League and Boy Scouts programs, where attorney Bradford Baugh, Valerie Tarvin, Nat Hales, Valerie Houghton, Rebekah Frye, Catherine Gallagher, Hector Morneo and Leah Amini appear to be gaining court orders to silence mandated reporters and protective parents.
Judge Drew Takaichi's form 700 indicates pedophile rings are laundering money through real estate and court orders that connects Takaichi to kickbacks earned from Los Gatos real estate cases, that appear to be tied to questionable accountings that may indicate a scandal is brewing for Mike Wasserman, Santa Clara County Supervisor who is fighting to maintain his seat in an upcoming election.
Beating & Sexually Assaulting Women
Attorney Eric Geffon , turned judge, was used by Rosen as a "clean up lawyer", to help celebrity 49er football players silence women who tried to report sexual assault and domestic violence, after Santa Clara wooed the 49ers away from San Francisco. Geffon made secret deals with Rosen to clean up for Ray McDonald and silence Kendra Scott when she first came out about Domestic Violence in 2014. Rosen is said to have used his political power to get Geffon appointed a judge, in return for silencing the women who were beaten or sexually assaulted by players in the NFL's 49er organization.
Rosen's emails to Stanford Law Professor Michele Dauber
Staffers on leave from the Santa Clara County's Victim Services Unit have sent confidential files showing that Rosen colluded with Stanford Professor Michele Dauber long before Judge Persky's sentencing of Brock Turner, who was convicted of sexually assaulting Emily Doe on the Stanford campus.
Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith was rumored to have used deputies assigned to security on the Stanford Campus to assist Rosen in garnering support from Feminists connected to the #METOO movement and launching recall efforts against Judge Persky, as a campaign stunt during an election year, despite the fact that Rosen will run unopposed in 2018,
This pattern mirrors what was seen when Rosen ran for reelection in 2012, where he reportedly used a Sheriff deputy assigned to the Saratoga High School campus to set up four young students on false sexual assault charges following the suicide of Audrie Pott and the ensuing PR campaign on cyber bullying laws, that got Rosen reelected.
CBS Bay Area produced a six part investigative series covering repeated failures of California's judges and prosecutors to comply with Marsy's Law, a powerful law that protect victims of violent crimes. San Mateo prosecutors have faced State Bar discipline for failing to comply with Marsy's law, leaving many to wonder if Rosen's connection to disgraced former State Bar employee James Towery is giving Rosen prosecutorial immunity where victims are concerned in affluent Silicon Valley communities.
The Jewish community is growing increasingly concerned about Rosen and rumors that many in the community are supporting campaigns to impeach Rosen, with #IMPEACHROSEN leading social media sites.
FAMILY COURTS, CA - Judge Bruce Mills, the man who terrorized people in Contra Costa family and criminal court has gone missing according to Nick Cantrell of the East Bay Times.
Court insiders speculate Judge Mills' body is buried deep at sea on orders of controversial probate Judge Edward Weil, appellate court Judge Humes and presiding judges Jill Fannin and Patricia Lucas, who are covering up judge crimes that include everything from fraud and misuse of judicial powers, to flagrant sexual harassment and pedophilia.
Tireless parents, picketers and protestors say they are not giving up on removing unethical judges and lawyers from the state's family courts, and Judge Mills is just the first to fall.
Santa Clara County has seen a ramping up of the "disgruntled", "crazy" and "discredited" litigants who have lost their children, their property and their dignity merely because corrupt judges including Drew Takaichi, James Towery , Stuart Scott, Vincent Chiarello and Arraon Persky toss their power (and libido) around like confetti at a Cold Play Concert in Levi Stadium.
Judge Vincent Chiarello killed Alisa Mesiti and picketing parents are demanding something be done about it.
Drew Takaichi and Aaron Persky have also been documented using their judicial powers to steal children and send them to live with pedophiles, while good father's were ignored and condemned to pay support for children they were not allowed to see.
Mothers and female lawyers have tolerated sexual harassment, abuse and domestic violence that judges in Santa Clara County laugh about at holiday parties and in local bars and brothels, hosted by the Santa Clara County Bar Association.
Picketing and protesting is now regularly occurring in Santa Clara County outside the sparking new courthouse, as Sheriff Laurie Smith is impotent when it comes to having her flunky cops (deputy Swenson) serve picketers with Judge Lucas' faux orders.
Protestors have been heard shouting: "Lucas can wipe her ass her fake orders", that most say violate the most basic First Amendment Rights.
Di9vorce attorneys in Santa Clara are watching in horror as the picketing reflects uprising seen in 1997, which demanded the removal of Judge Stewart from the bench and that brought heightened scrutiny to attorney misconduct in family law cases, where 90% of people are involuntarily forced to represent themselves because they cannot afford a lawyer.
Santa Clara County will continue to welcome protestors every Tuesday morning from 9- noon, until the children and money are returned.
On Tuesday, May 8th a giant protest and march organized by victims of rouge CPS workers and corrupt family court judges will bring press out in Contra Costa County, where mothers, fathers and grandparents will continue to demand change in California's Family Courts. Email us for details !
If you ask members of Q - The answer to the San Jose Mercury's question: Is your lawyers a crook? The answer is YES!
Thinking the State Bar, with all the same bad actors will do something about their own....., forget about it. We may just get photos and fingerprints, not honest lawyers.
But Robert Mueller may be on to something as he reached in a busted up attorney- client privilege with the President of the United States and his lawyer, over a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. As goes Mr. Cohen............
At the same time Bill Cosby's $3.4 million dollar sex hush agreement didn't keep that so silent as prosecutors busted privilege and put him on trial for a second time.
In family court secret deals mafia like lawyers have been doing for years, and the agreements are just as illegal , they are just not stopped by family court judges, the bottom dwellers on the judiciary.
Taking advantage of people during an emotionally charged time of their lives to settle up for 10% of what they are entitled to, or to agree not to talk about their thoughts that a former spouse is an abuser or pedophile, is wrong. It is illegal.
This culture has evolved with the help of cops who are willing to misuse their office, as they help protect lawyers who protect them in return.
Meanwhile thinking about more local affairs and Sex-on-the-Bench, Santa Clara County's controversial female Sheriff Smith is starting to look old and haggard after news broke she stole the infamous sex tape during an investigation and people in her own departments have taken to anonymous blogging to rat her out. ( See the Tomas Casey Report - run by insider with an axe to grind)
San Jose Mercury reporter Tracey Kaplan did a fair job on summing up new mandatory fingerprinting and photographing requirements, but may have missed the forest through the trees where lawyers in Santa Clara County are concerned, and where Kaplan has given these lawyers, including District Attorney Jeff Rosen a free pass for far too long.
Cops interfering with internal investigations is a criminal act and so is prosecutorial misconduct where Jeff Rosen and his DDA John Chase have given these cops immunity in return for favors and emoluments.
Think Gilroy deputy Plett, who is under Smith's management (and maybe her sheets). Deputy Plett misused his police car, had sex in it and let someone he was having sex with out of domestic violence charges. Then Plett conspired to trump up false child abuse charges against her ex . Smith did nothing, and not one of the 600 people employed in the district attorney's office even looked at a cop lying and the impact of those lives on an innocent child.
A local blog that is operated by a cop insider tells the backstory of Sheriff Smith and why it is more than just sex.
What the blogger misses is that Sheriff Smith and Jeff Rosen used the death of Audrie Pott to advance their careers. All the while the parents of the dead child went around making money on Netflix Films, and giving Sheriff Smith a starring role in the recent documentary; Web of Lies. Such propaganda is intended to advance Smith's reelection campaign, and appears to be illegal.
Speaking of illegal, as the rest of us get ready to file our taxes, Sheila and Larry Potts haven't seemed concerned about doing the same while paying Rosen and Smith back for the $2,000,000 they got out of the settlement by frightening the young Saratoga students. Rosen and Smith got re-elected , but the Potts forgot to file the taxes on their 503 (c) non-profit, as they used all the money innocent donors gave in an emotional outpouring following Audrie's suicide. A suicide far more likely linked to the abuse she suffered from her greedy mom and step parents who had documented domestic violence hiding in their past. All the donor money went to give the Potts a lifestyle they didn't deserve, and to assure kickbacks to shady lawyers and cops. Time for an audit. Time for the Attorney General.
Remember, mobsters usually go down for tax and mail fraud, not the real fraud they usually engage in every day.
So, if Bill Cosby can't make you laugh anymore, and you can't travel all the way to Washington to watch the latest legal scandal, you can find secret sex deals covered up by a shady lawyer, or cops helping to obstruct justice right here at home , and the California Bar will keep sending these shady lawyers referrals, while taking their cut along the way.
Pamela Nudelman Describes Silicon Valley Divorce
Pam Nudelman was just getting warmed up to expose Silicon Valley's divorce secrets when Supervisor Joe Simitian began working overtime to cut Pam off during her Public Comment period at the monthly supervisor meeting.
A nerve has clearly been hit as the lawyers and county officials who worked so hard to bring the 49ers and Oakland A's to San Jose, have suddenly found themselves facing the music for what they have done to women, men and children in Santa Clara County divorce cases over the past 20 years.
Fueled in part by the #METOO movement, and driven by injustice, Pam is determined to tell her story. Her hope is to help other women, even if her Public Comments are cut off by government lawyers hoping to shut her up.
After mainstream media ignored her, and Santa Clara County's appointed and elected officials dismissed her, Ms. Nudelman pressed on hoping to explain how she suffered during and after her divorce to a former prosecutor with the Santa Clara County district Attorney's Office. During a long term marriage Pam supported her husband and children, even when Alan Nudelman was charged with burglary, a charge he pled down and that the State Bar never was interested in addressing. (See LA Times News Article- Alan Nudelman.)
After Alan Nudelman beat down his wife with the help of divorce attorney Bradford Baugh in a painful divorce, Alan went on to work as legal counsel for the Oakland A's where he and Alan Ruby worked to bring the A's to San Jose, as had been done previously when Santa Clara lured the NFL's 49ers to Santa Clara.
Additionally, Nudelman went on to make money as a criminal clean up lawyer for the county, his criminal record that was discharged with community service a the Los Gatos library not withstanding. Nudelman never had to pay his wife from a long term marriage any spousal support, as attorney Bradford Baugh assures in all his male client's cases.
For over 16 years, Ms. Nudelman alleges she suffered most at the hands of private and government attorneys used in her divorce and paid handsomely by her former husband Alan Nudelman. The army of attorneys paid in the Nudelman divorce included Bradford Baugh, Nat Hales, James Cox, Rebekah Frye, Joseph Johnson, Margret Patrick, Craig Silman and others who hijacked her community property and failed to protect a wife as they pandered to her politically connected husband. Experts like Tim Harper and James Butera were retained by Baugh to rig reports and assure Pam was denied support and her share of community property. A scheme Mr. Baugh tells all clients he intends to employe in highly litigated divorce cases.
Not surprisingly Brad Baugh currently represents Kari Wolff, a Los Gatos School teacher who is the daughter of the Lew Wolff, owner of the Oakland A's . A payback Nudelman assured for Baugh beyond what was paid in the divorce.
During a Santa Clara County Family Court proceeding in Wolff v. Rossi, Baugh pressed on before Judge Pegg, with corrupt CPA James Butera, insisting that Ms. Wolff should not have to pay her former lawyer husband more in child support, despite being worth over $1.6 billion dollars. As billionaire school teacher Kari Wolff tried to slip out of making sure her own son was properly supported in a manner she could easily afford, Mr. Baugh;s criminal Divorce Mob, which included Jim Hoover and countless so -called experts, kept the counter running at over $3000/hour in a hearing Judge Pegg cut short for personal reasons. Seems everyone in Santa Clara pays attention to lawyer bills, and not kids.
Such claims are common for Mr Baugh in Santa Clara County courts, and Ms. Wolff's former husband. Mr. Rossi, is connected to the firm that hired Jim Towery , after Towery was fired by the State Bar for using his office to protect dirty lawyers and his own wife DDA Sinunu Towery, who was the prosecutor failing to protect women who were beaten, murdered, raped, and sexually assaulted by 49ers players after the team won a Super bowl and moved to Santa Clara. (Joe Montana and Steve Young are reportedly horrified).
After enduring a nearly five year divorce, and on her 60th birthday, Pam got word that she won a $3,000,000 plus judgement against Joseph Johnson. The judgement granted by Judge Cain showed that lawyers Pam did hire during her divorce were not effective counsel when dealing with the Antitrust activity of Bradford Baugh and his goons. Pam will likely never collect on the judgement, as Johnson has filed for bankruptcy, as he appears to no longer benefit from Baugh's criminal enterprise.
The State Bar did nothing about any of these unscrupulous bottom-feeding-shark lawyers, despite multiple complaints Pam, and others, made against Baugh and Nudelman during this time. Including complaints of sexual harassment of clients in family law and criminal cases who are especially vulnerable. .
Many of the same lawyers in Pam's case are the subject of Antitrust complaints currently being investigated by the State Bar. These complaints show Silicon Valley divorce lawyers engaged in Unfair Business Practices that deprived mostly women and the elderly of honest legal services during their divorce proceedings.
Pam's judgement against her former attorney came as James Towery, local lawyer turned corrupt family law judge, acted as the Chief Trial Counsel for the State Bar, where Towery reportedly protected the worst lawyers, including Pam's former husband and Towery's wife, both governmental lawyers employed with the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.
The Towerys are suspected of rigging hearings and protecting lawyers in both Santa Clara County's criminal and family law courts, as part of their retirement plan. Paradise Papers show the Towerys along with Silicon Valley lawyers have been moving assets to Costa Rica, assets which were stolen from Santa Clara County residents during Silicon Valley divorces.
Like thousands of other women in Silicon Valley, family courts failed Pam Nudelman. During her divorce she was forced from her home, driven from her children and threatened with financial ruin, that required her to sleep in a warehouse in affluent Silicon Valley as her husband was nice and comfortable in the family's $4,000,000 Los Gatos home, which neighbored Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, Inc.
Pam repeatedly tried to voice her struggles to be free from her husband's verbal, emotional, financial and physical abuse, but she was repeatedly ignored and dismissed after lawyers part of a criminal enterprise called Pam "crazy", "unstable" and "not credible". Nobody helped Pam and the Los Gatos Police even appeared to assist Bradford Baugh and Alan Nudelman in an effort to make false domestic violence claims to discredit Pam completely in the county's courts.
False claims and misconduct by the Los Gatos police, and other Santa Clara County law enforcement agencies are part of the culture that fuels Mr. Baugh and his criminal enterprise. A recent complaint was filed by a father whose ex used Santa Clara County Sheriff Deputy Plett to lodge criminal charges of child abuse to win in a custody case. The county could have to pay millions, just as the city of San Jose had to pay nearly $7,000,000 for an officer who used excessive force on a woman and then walked over her broken body, calling her a "liar" .
Pam knows where the bodies are buried in the District Attorney's Office, and in the Los Gatos police department. where a few bad apples suck at the teat of tax payers and where a powerful monopoly is anxious to silence her, even 15 years later. Pam has complained to county officials that she has had vehicles tampered with, bullet holes shot in her car, and that she fears for her life, yet county managers have done nothing to protect Pam, nor to investigate over the county's BLUE WALL., that protects the state's most corrupt judges and lawyers.
Despite death threats, PTSD and sadness from being driven from her own children. Pam is determined to tell her story, speaking out to protect other women, and with no thought of possible financial gain.
Agents for Pam are attempting to have her story told in a Netflix series. The series would expose Santa Clara County's family and criminal courts for what they have done to women over the past 25 years as Silicon Valley rose to be one of the most affluent and influential places in the world. A place where Pam Nudelman has kept all the records, license plate numbers, and the receipts.
Women Who Stole Justice Using the Sex Card: Sheriff Laurie Smith and Former Prosecutor Sinunu Towery
State and County Pay Big for Cop and Judge Sex
San Francisco, CA - California's Judicial Council Secretly paid out $600,000 to settle sexual harassment claims against three judges, while refusing to report to tax payers who those judges were. Many suspect all three come from Santa Clara County and the Sixth District Court of Appeal, where insiders report the payoffs were made to protect Judge Stuart Scott, Judge James Towery and Judge Conrad Rushing. Judge Patricia Lucas who is reported to have arranged the hush settlements to cover up a much larger problem.
Secret settlements are particularly concerning because Stuart Scott is a former Santa Clara County prosecutor, and James Towery was Chief Trial Counsel for the State Bar, where he reportedly ignored valid complaints against some lawyers, and fabricated evidence against others with the help of his wife, former prosecutor Sinunu- Towery.
On Easter Sunday, Tracy Kaplan, from the San Jose Mercury exposed a sexual harassment case that Sheriff Laurie Smith had buried shortly before her first election. Smith actually took , in violation of protocols and law, a tape from an Internal Affairs Investigation, which was reported to the county at the time, but not pursued. Smith went on to claim first female Sheriff in California. and survived four elections in what now appears to be a misuse of her office, and through manipulating the media.
The allegations claim that Smith, who was married, repeatedly hit on one of her subordinates and ultimately ruined his career. Smith appears to have continued that management style, in a clear abuse of power as her male jail guards and courtroom deputies continue to obstruct justice, kill and beat citizens, (See jail guard hearings for death of Michael Tyree, and inmate beating of Mr. Garcia) .
One such lawyer protecting Smith appears to be former prosecutor Sinunu, also a woman who had a local reputation for hiding evidence, protecting certain political foes, and burying others, like Ben Fields. Fields was disbarred when Sinunu Towery's husband, Jim Towery, was Chief Trial Counsel at the State Bar.
Sinunu Towery was also known for her own sexual escapades, having "open" relationships with men who worked through Silicon Valley Faces, embroiled in embezzlement that Sinunu never investigated when she was a prosecutor.
Insiders reported that the Towerys have conspired to use Silicon Valley's more influential legal system as their personal dynasty, and ATM machine, threatening, arresting and harassing anyone who threatens to expose them., or to report flagrant sex and child abuse.
Most concerning is the Press involvement in these issues, A highly regarded journalist, Fredric Tulsky, from the San Jose Mercury News, crafted an investigative story: Tainted Trials.
While the journalist was advancing his own career and obtaining speaking invitations from Santa Clara University, as organized by Sinunu, he reportedly had used Sinunu Towery as a weekly source, and ultimately may have edited out information that would have been damaging to her and her career in the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.
Many are calling for a deep investigation into the Santa Clara County Sheriff and District Attorney campaigns over the past year, and if those campaigns may have been tainted by a biased press, and improper governmental activity.
More are wondering how many false criminal complaints have been made and how many divorces have been ruined as these two women advanced their careers, on their backs, and in unmarked police cars.
Some are even claiming that Sinunu married James Towery not only to get protection under spousal privilege, but where Jim Towery used his connections at the Bar to attack his wife's adversaries and disbar lawyers who could have threatened that career.
Sadly, as the #METOO movement seeks to put more women in positions of power throughout our community, if those women behave similarly to the men allegedly sexually harassing and retaliating against subordinates, the movement will have done little to shine a bright light on injustice in our local governments.
In her new book BROTOPIA, Emily Chang describes the culture in Silicon Valley's work and investment spaces, yet completely ignores Silicon Valley family courts, where a stronghold of Bro -Judges, lawyers and court appointed experts have created a criminal culture that has left children without mothers and unleashed legal rulings that show women are 10 times more likely to be financially ruined in Silicon Valley divorce courts than men.
Motherless America , is a recent book that touches on how welfare issues impact mothers in family courts across the nation.
However, for the men not part of Silicon Valley's "Bro Culture", they too are being financially destroyed by what appears to be a core group of family law attorneys who have hijacked Silicon Valley's divorce courts in schemes where children are legally kidnapped and community property is converted to pay penalties and fees to lawyers engaging in Unfair Business Practices and Antitrust activity.
Criminals operating in Silicon Valley divorce cases include controversial attorneys and custody evaluators who are getting sloppy. Some say this criminal enterprise is larger than the Social Security and Immigration fraud lawyers have imposed on the public in recent years.
2018 has seen a soaring number of State Bar Antitrust and Unfair Business Practice Complaints, and the newly reorganized State Bar appears unprepared to address.
Criminal divorce enterprises work in groups, with individuals such as Michael Kerner , John Orlando, Leslie Packer and Phil Stahl robotically issuing fraudulent reports in high conflict custody cases, that judges rubber stamp for certain lawyers.
Accountants James Butera, Michael Thompson, and Sally White appear to act for the enterprise in a manner that creates an innocent monopoly of court appointed accountants, each willing to assist a core groups of lawyers earning over $500,000 on the average Silicon Valley middle class divorce that can be dragged out for 6-10 years. All willing to evade taxes.

Court staff and insiders have provided valuable information and secret sources to QAnon Local demonstrating that women in Silicon Valley are 10 times more likely to be subject to fees and penalties (sanctions) that exceed $100,000 or more in a modern divorce case than men. In some instances Judge Aaron Persky, Judge Vincent Chiarello , Judge Mark Pierce, Judge Drew Takaichi, Judge Patricia Lucas, Judge Mary Arand, Judge Stuart Scott and Judge James Towery have legal records showing they sanctioned hundreds women over $500,000 before their divorces are final.
These judges use reports issued by members of a criminal enterprise to legally justify their rulings. The judges appear to issue these rulings with the hopes of later earning private judging assignments from the criminal enterprise, as Judge Mary Ann Grilli is reportedly doing, after she awarded the criminal enterprise over $100,000,000 in just the past ten years.
Fees and penalties charged as attorney fee sanctions in divorce cases appear to NOT be reported to the IRS, creating a tax immunity for many lawyers willing to participate in criminal activity where divorce cases are concerned.
A detailed line up of the criminal enterprise includes lawyers and custody experts willing to cross county lines, and obtain orders from less than ethical judges. A sampling includes:
Custody evaluator, Michael Kerner, accidentally emailed Jane and John Q Public and exposed secret deals he offers to Hector Moreno's clients. Kerner is a key player in Silicon Valley's divorce mafia.
Custody evaluator John Orlando, known for selling rigged reports to lawyer Hector Moreno. Orlando's phone number ends in 50-50 , where Orlando has been secretly recorded in James Towery's courtroom engaging in ex parte communications with Judge Towery. Orlando is known for assuring a 50-50 custody recommendation to parents with documented domestic violence and alcoholism, if the price is right, or if the price is paid by attorneys James McManis, Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Elise Mitchell, Hector Moreno, Leah Amini, or Valerie Houghton.
Attorney Hector Moreno has sent threatening emails to Jane and John Q Public after his clients reached out to Q for help. He is currently facing RICO and Antitrust lawsuits and his son, Michael Moreno, a prosecutor for the Santa Clara County District Attorney, is being investigated for witness tampering in the criminal cases involving former 49ers , as Hector Moreno represented their victims in family court.
Attorney Bradford Baugh notoriously used in depositions of lawyers belonging to the criminal enterprise, and to protect court appointed experts, who are used as lookouts for the criminal gang operating in Santa Clara County divorce cases.
Attorney Heather Allan routinely court appointed to represent children, despite children reaching out to warn judges of her abusive conduct,
Attorney Rebekah Frye has cooked the books and overbilled clients, including tax payers, during her appointment as a minor's counsel, where she reportedly was paid off to conceal information of pedophilia and drug use that harmed the young clients she represented.
Attorney Stacey Stevens has been willing to threaten the press and court files show that Judges Fannin, Weil and Hayes have refused to report Stevens to the State Bar , as required by law.
Attorney James McManis has destroyed the financial health of women and the elderly in family law cases for decades. McManis recently started representing media and others seeking to sue law enforcement agencies, in order to gain information and reduce settlement payouts by the county. McManis is known for litigation tactics and suppression of evidence where Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department is concerned. McManis is rumored to be protecting criminal activity of Sheriff Laurie Smith, who was recently reported by Tracy Kaplan in the San Jose Mercury for interfering with Internal Affairs investigations dating back 25 years.
CPA James Butera reportedly returned part of a retainer for Moreno's clients when they threatened to sue him for malpractice and where Butera was copied on emails to Jane and John Q Public .
Custody Evaluator Ellen Mauldin, used in high conflict custody battles, reportedly rolled over on her own child, and was arrested and charged with shoplifting from Costco in San Jose's Almaden Valley, where many children whose lives she has destroyed, still live.
Custody Consultant Valerie Houghton, still used today in many Silicon Valley custody cases with attorney Heather Allan, Bradford Baugh, Leah Amini and Liz Goodley, has been indicted by Santa Clara County's District Attorney's Office for a number of white collar crimes including; stealing money from the clients of lawyers she regularly accepts assignments from.
Custody Expert Phil Stahl has reportedly concealed domestic violence and child abuse, for high paying clients.
Custody Expert Leslie Packer was found to be rigging reports after a former staff member sent damaging information to a group of disgruntled parents.
In Contra Costa Judges Weil, Haynes, Fannin and Austin appear to be trying to copycat Santa Clara County's Brotopia rings.
Parents who wish to have the support of others, while remaining anonymous as the enterprise is uncovered and charged, are encouraged to reach out to Q's email where they will be redirected to Signal and Protonmail to prevent exposure and retaliation.
Women in Silicon Valley have also obtained an 800 hotline , the number will be announced soon, and anyone who feels they are victims of the Brotopia Culture in Silicon Valley are invited to call and connect with others.
Parents Unable to See Their Children Fight Back in Public Comment During Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors Meeting
Scott the Protestor hasn't seen his daughter in two years. This separation has been due to the child's mother refusing to comply with Judge Greenwood's orders, which appears to be tolerated by District Attorney Jeff Rosen.
Scott's ex may have bought her way into getting out of Greenwood's orders by hiring attorney Heather Allan, one of several Santa Clara County family law attorneys being investigated by the State Bar for Antitrust activity that serves to deprive residents of honest legal services, and fair rulings in their custody and divorce cases.
Ironically, Judge Greenwood, a former public defender was just elevated to the Sixth District Court of Appeal, taking over for disgraced serial sexual harasser Judge Conrad Rushing.
Scott has been calling out lawyers, judges and others not doing their job in public comment for nearly two years, since the county took his motor home in a pre- Super bowl sweep, designed to cleanse the image of the county's 49er NFL football team.
Sheriff Smith, the county's top cop told Scott not to worry about not seeing his daughter , telling Scott, "she is too young to remember the lost time".
Not making sure children are allowed to have meaningful relationships with their children. Scott, like others, have faced harsh retaliation for activism that threatens to expose court intervention in domestic violence, custody of children and fraud in child support matters where the county's Department of Child Support Services and District Attorney's office receive special favors from elected politicians and private lawyers to NOT investigate certain cases.
Scott the Protestor remains undeterred in fighting to see his child while speaking up for others similarly situated. In speaking up Scott has become a social media hero for those who can not.
The videos he makes documenting his experience are his effort to use Free Speech to pushback and expose improper governmental activity. The video of the Sheriffs retaliating against him for speaking out against Judge Stuart Scott sending the police to his home after Scott was reported to have been court watching and trying to file a CJP complaint leads the list of one of many videos of Scott the Protestor flying around social media.
At a Santa Clara County Public Safety and Justice Committee Meeting in March, lead by Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Scott called out the county's presiding judge, Patricia Lucas. Scott has repeatedly used his public comments to document that Judge Lucas, the county's most powerful judge, is regularly late to county meetings, despite all the perks she earns to make sure she gets to those meetings on time.
Lucas is also reportedly being investigated for misusing court staff and resources, in a manner that is downright criminal. She may have been blocking family law appeals to keep a clean record of family law judges that include Mary Ann Grilli, James Towery, Stuart Scott, Margret Johnson, Maureen Folan. Judges Rudy and Huber, also appear to be in on the game of awarding the largest attorney fee awards in the state to a handful of lawyers acting as a Silicon Valley Gang. Public lawyers from the DA's office appear in on the game as well, where Jeff Rosen throws cases and rigs outcomes to benefit those lawyers.
Lucas is additionally charged with allowing local lawyers from the Santa Clara County Bar Association to freely use the public courthouse during court business hours, while locking out the public.
In the meantime, Lucas has been charging lawyers from Asian and out- of- area Bar Associations to use the courthouse, conduct that fails to demonstrate neutrality and that fuels a cronyism that has overtaken Santa Clara County's family law and criminal justice community.
Lucas, who reportedly received personal bribes and kickbacks along with former court CEO Yamasaki when the new Santa Clara County Courthouse was built, has been hiding out from public meetings, or arriving late to miss public comment when her efforts to legally harass and threaten those speaking out failed.
Many in the community hope that Judge Greenwood's presence in the Sixth District will serve to explode the culture that allows parents and lawyers to use children as weapons in order to make more money out of divorce and custody cases.
Disgruntled litigants have written letters, lodged complaints and taken to social media to expose what is going on in California's Probate and Divorce Courts. That effort appears to be paying off.
Solano County moms kept from their children by family court judges have gotten two judges to retire early by ramping up on 5 recall efforts backed by strategic social media campaigns.
Alameda County's District Attorney, Nancy O'Malley, was convinced to launch investigations and indictments in probate cases where elderly citizens and their children have been robbed by unethical lawyers, receivers and others dealing with their family estates after activists persisted.
East Bay Tines reporter Nate Gartrell reported that Contra Costa Judge Bruce Mills was slammed by an independent investigation and 38 page report which revealed Mills' conspiracy with Judge John Kennedy. Multiple family law court judges abused their office and power to retaliate against and jail court reform activist Joe Sweeney. Joe was jailed after a game of judicial hot potato designed to falsely incarcerated a dad.
Underground activists claim the jailing was in retaliation for Joe's activism and that the conduct of Contra Costa judges is being echoed across the judiciary where lawyers, judges and police officers are acting in violation of the law to subvert justice and protected speech.
Orange County parents are working with FBI agents and Department of Justice to expose lucrative private judge relationships where attorneys like David Weinberg are being investigated for running a divorce mob that includes family law attorneys Tom Tuttle, Keith Dolnick, where Antitrust activity runs rampant. The mob was exposed after moms secretly recorded hearings before private judges and found court reporters and lawyers were working in concert to change court transcripts and protect privately paid judges acting in divorce and probate cases. Weinberg is reportedly being investigated by the State Bar for fixing prices in divorce cases where he billed over $700,000 in attorney fees.
Napa and Sacramento counties are investigating private judging relationships as well and the State Bar has been referring lawyers like Bob Blevans, Diana Richmond, Paula Salinger and Nancy Perkovich to the Attorney General and local DA offices, after these lawyers reportedly used law enforcement agencies and court reporters in an effort to jail litigants who spoke up or filed State Bar complaints against them.
Santa Clara County family court female judges Lucas, Emede, Arand and Yew are reportedly being investigated by the State Auditor for protecting male judges who have been sexually harassing female lawyers and litigants in divorce and probate cases. The investigation shows that Judge Rudy, Judge Towery and Judge Stuart Scott have been emailing nude photos of female litigants and female prosecutors. Additionally Santa Clara COunty Superior Court has been found to be attempting to block litigants from filing appeals in a manner that appears to indicate improper governmental activity that acts as obstruction of justice.
Ironically as Santa Clara's DA is asleep a the wheel where public integrity is concerned, Lake County and Alameda County District Attorneys are investigating lawyers and others engaging in Antitrust activity that fixes prices, reduces the quality of legal services and deprives people involved in divorce cases of honest legal services.
Lawyers acting for children, as court appointed experts or custody evaluators are not only facing increased state and federal complaints, they are facing public shaming as "disgruntled litigants" work in the shadows of social media, contact neighbors, friends, and family members of judges and lawyers overbilling and misusing tax payer money.
Social media campaigns are targeting LinkedIn , Snapchat, Instagram, Yelp, Twitter and Facebook to expose California's probate and divorce court bad actors.
Disgruntled litigants are photographing and video recording their lawyers, and judges during private settlements and court proceedings in an effort to protect themselves. A flood of such recordings are racing across the internet and landing in social media circles where they are scrubbed and recirculated such that they can't be traced or identified.
An underground social media movement, #OperationExposure, appears to be organizing hundreds of underground lawyers, parents, children and grandparents who believe the best defense for injustice is to secretly video and audio record lawyers who violate the law or use settlement agreements to hide fraud and corruption.
" If you have done nothing wrong, why would you care if someone records or takes your photo?" says one underground member. " We do this to protect ourselves because these judges and lawyers are too willing to break the law."
Moms, dads and even children fed up with unethical lawyers charging unconscionable fees in family law cases are secretly recording conversations that show lawyers have been willing to violate the law, bribe expert witnesses and pad their bills. Secret recordings passed on through the media and investigators may change the game.
Students are now ramping up the pressure to do what the adults couldn't get done where guns and domestic violence are concerned in California's communities and courts.
Silently children have been suffering for decades, fearful they could be shot or abused as mandated reporters in cash flush Silicon Valley's schools, courts and Child Protective Agencies fail to protect kids at home and in school from gun violence, emotional distress and harm.
Young people are calling on elected officials to step up and do something about the silent epidemic that has been labeled domestic violence. An epidemic that has caused thousands of men, women and children to suffer, creating a ticking emotional time bomb waiting to explode in the heart of the tech and social media birthplace.
A deep investigation reveals that Silicon Valley's law enforcement agencies have been complicit in removing guns from homes where family courts have identified domestic violence.
Women have jumped from the freeways, children have been killed by their own fathers, and fraud is so rampant that checked out judges spend more time calculating fees for favored lawyers than calculating federally mandated child support for area children.
Most alarming is how Silicon Valley consistently fails to protect women and children from violence. And not because victims haven't been speaking out , or reaching out to help to groups NOT associated with area lawyers and courts.
At a recent Santa Clara County Supervisor meeting, supervisors were warned that the county's courts , receiving millions in state and federal grants, consistently fail to remove the guns from people charged with domestic violence.
In an area where DVROS are given out like candy to poor and self- represented, wealthy 49ers, business tycoons and lawyers committing domestic violence walk away without even a hand slap. Even more disturbing is the number of law enforcement officers known to be violent , who are allowed to remain on the job, where they are willing to ignore real abuse and impose it with immunity their jobs assure.
Former 49er Ray Mc Donald reportedly clicked a gun to frighten the mother of his child. When SWAT knocked down Mc Donald's door after a 5th allegation of violence against women since arriving in the valley, law enforcement officers joked with Mc Donald and never attempted to make sure his home, across the street from a elementary school, was gun free.
A San Jose police officer, living in Gilroy, killed his wife and then himself when she told him she was filing for divorce. The Santa Clara County DA's office never investigated the law enforcement culture that led to such a violent ending for a Gilroy family, but at the same time prosecutor Stuart Scott had no problem engaging in misconduct to convict a Hispanic male of murder, using lies to do so.
Stuart Scott was never disciplined by the trial court judge, the Sixth District Court of Appeal , and by the time he was blasted by a federal court, he was elevated to a Santa Clara County Family Law Court, where he has used law enforcement agencies and the DA's office to pay back favors and ignore real domestic violence.
Women in Silicon Valley are tired of violence against them being used as a bargaining chip and FOR- PROFIT gain in counties and courts.
A RICO against Santa Clara County is rumored to be long overdue, but coming. It could cost the county billions for creating a culture of abuse.
Cindy Chavez , who supported and endorsed Sheriff Laurie Smith is late to the party and as the county's only elected female Supervisor is not likely to survive her next election.
Mike Wasserman, who also endorsed violence with his political clout, and is reportedly facing an ANTI-Endorsement campaign as he runs for reelection of District 4, which reaches from Gilroy to Los Gatos, communities subject to increased violence against women and children.
Santa Clara County's Victim Services unit is also being investigated for consistently failing to provide support and services to victims of domestic violence , as millions in state and federal funds have gone missing from the unit, which recently was taken in udder the Jeff Rosen's District Attorney Office.
Students who endured the county's family courts and complicit fidusaries are reportedly rallying behind the #NEVERAGIN movement, trying to bring change, and conducting research through social media.
Don't underestimate these pissed off youngsters, they may be able to effect change more than the Russian interference in a Presidential campaign.
EPIDEMIC OF JUDGE RECALLS: Moms Can Lift Cars and Recall Judges to Save Their Kids- As Mainstream Media Sleeps .........
What Do Moms Do When Their Children Are in Danger?
They Lift Cars in the Air.
They March in the Streets.
They March Down to the Schools.
They Camp Out in the Hospital.
And when Family Court Judges become so complicit and brainwashed as to take children from their mothers simply because of fancy lawyers and corrupt politicians, they serve and recall judges.
Law enforcement agencies that traditionally protect judges over the public couldn't even stop these moms from serving a judge who was ducking the required personal service. These determined moms got to the judge anyway and now have a record of 5 and 5.
In Contra Costa hundreds of parents are organizing social media and recall campaigns agaist judges who acted in the county as presiding judges, where a culture has been created to label parents fighting for their children as disgruntled, crazy and vexatious. #VexatiousMoms are celebrated everywhere in society, except family court. Women restrained from their own children have turned their fight against the judges who have allowed this to happen. Mocking mother judges who are a disgrace to motherhood , like Judge Jill Fannin.
Meanwhile, Santa Clara County activists, with all of the money and power Silicon Valley has to offer, couldn't do anything about sexually abusive judges like Stuart Scott. Nor does anyone seem interested in judges who have been using the abuse of law to harm women for decades (Conrad Rushing, Patricia Lucas, Mary Arand, James Towery, Mary Ann Grilli).
All the public outrage over Judge Perksy, (that prompted Stanford Law Professor Michele Dauber to launch a recall campaign against Judge Persky), Michele Dauber seems so focused on one judge ruling in one case, that Dauber misses the forest through the trees and seems deaf, dumb and blind to the real challenges women, immigrants and children face in Silicon Valley divorce, probate and civil cases.
While exhaustive efforts and attention have gone to Emily Doe, victim of Brock Turner, the Santa Clara County DA, Jeff Rosen, seems unconcerned with thousands of victims of domestic violence, fraud and legal corruption in Silicon Valley Courts, that serve to harm women and children on a much larger scale.
HERE IS THE SOLANO COUNTY MOMS 5 FOR 5 RECORD:
Judge Cynda Riggins-Unger SUCCESSFULLY SERVED With Notice of Intent to Circulate Recall Petition, SOLANO COUNTY “FIVE IN FIVE” After evading service of recall petition by summoning Solano County Sheriffs to block advocates from service, Judge Cynda Riggins-Unger was successfully served with the notice of intent to circulate recall petition.
Unger evaded service twice: once at the Superior Court, and a second time when a process server was commissioned to serve her. The process server was finally able to serve the documents to the Clerk for Department 5.
This is the fifth time in five years that advocates have attempted to recall a Solano County Family Court judge, for failing to protect women and children from documented cases of physical and sexual abuse, a landmark issue advocates are naming “Five in Five”.
Over three dozen litigants have written formal complaints to the Commission on Judicial Performance about the judges’ behavior, alleging violations of the California Code of Judicial Ethics. The Commission on Judicial Performance is currently under heavy public and regulatory scrutiny for what is statistically documented to be a failure to address warranted complaints.
The Protective Mothers of Solano County have gathered more than 150 women impacted by an alleged dangerous bias in Solano County Family Court that disregards evidence of sexual and physical abuse and punishes women for speaking out.
Not all impacted litigants are mothers, women who have a romantic relationship, but no children, are also required to pursue protective orders through family court. This, advocates claim, further harms women who need protective orders.
In 2016 Judge Garry Ichikawa refused to provide a protective order to Kenesha Jackson, a Department of Rehabilitation employee who hand-wrote her pleadings. Shortly thereafter, Everett Highbaugh, the man from whom she was seeking protection, allegedly murdered Jackson in her home while her children were present. The case currently awaits trial.
Advocates claim this is one of many cases where judges blatantly refused to consider credible evidence of abuse and habitually ruled against the victims of domestic violence.
In one case, Judge Garry Ichikawa officially ordered the destruction of evidence.
“The most difficult part about this is building awareness. People always look for what the woman did to cause this, they don’t believe that judges are biased,” Advocate J.C. claims.
Advocates have been attempting to address the problem in family court for more than five years. Advocates claim that the problems with the judges are well known throughout the Solano Superior Court, Domestic Violence Agencies, as well as local attorneys. But no one has actually stepped up to address the issue.
With #metoo gaining steam and the public starting to raise awareness of issues of sexual and domestic abuse against women, as well as pervasive abuse of power shielded and protected by enablers, advocates are hoping that finally, people will begin to listen and help address the issue in Solano County.
Women and children are literally dying.
