Pro per, or self represented , litigants in California's family court cases are often characterized by judges and lawyers as " annoying", "vexatious" and "disgruntled" .
As the recent Presidential Election showed, California's Judiciary may have underestimated the status quo and traditional court procedures judges have used to silence pro pers for decades.
The upper echelons in the state's court system may be starting to take a new look at these disgruntled litigants, or Minions as they proudly refer to themselves, as these so called minions, who account for 80% of the states family law litigants may pose the greatest threat to California's judiciary in the modern era.
Over the past few months the Minions , along with the help of court insiders and members of anonymous, have employed their wit, their talents, and their connections to expose the insidious judicial conduct that persists in family courts and that serves to waste billons in tax payer funds.
Minions Organize the New Age Judicial Tea Party
Dubbed the Judicial Tea Party , several family law advocates and academics have joined the Minions to provide support, research and direction as assistance to navigate and break into a system entrenched with a status quo bureaucracy and judicial arrogance that has spiraled out of control. A dysfunctional court system arising from the mismanagement of the State Bar, the Commission on Judicial Performance and the Judicial Council is being aggressively attacked.
Minion investigations show much of the new age court culture that has served to be so harmful in family court cases arises from the leadership of Chief Justice , Tani G. Cantil- Sakauye. Investigative efforts commissioned by the Minions shows that Cantil- Sakauye has mismanaged far more than judicial discipline at CJP, in fact this California Chief Justice may go down as the most inept financial manager of California's court systems in the state's history. Under her management the courts are essentially bankrupt, and the state's most vulnerable citizens have been consistently denied access to the courts though the policies and practices employed and adopted under Cantil- Sakauye's management and oversight. The issue is so dire, it may call fro federal investigation and intervention. Cantil- Sakauye has already faced such intervention with the federal intervention required in Southern California's traffic courts, the precedent is set for intervention and undoing of thousands of family law cases.
Minions Attack - Good Judges and Lawyers are Worry Over Pubic Trust in the Legal System
Tired of court created legal alienation, unjust and fabricated sanctions and judges working more for the " in " crowd in family law matters, the Minions are taking to social media, collaborating on media creations, assisting investigative reporters and evolving into a political and social network that will be difficult to ignore.
Courts that once relied on informal policies and practices that served to silence court critics, are about to face a new era. Judges who were overly confident that their bias, abuse of discretion and misconduct would be tolerated by the dysfunctions at the Commission on Judicial Performance and buried by the state's ineffective appeal process, are about to find they will have to answer to tax payers for wasting their money and exposing their counties to costly litigation awards.
After the state legislature ordered an audit of the Commission on Judicial Performance, and court reform hero Joe Sweeney was jailed for his role in helping to obtain the audit, the Minions, who supported Joe Sweeney and Court Reform's effort to secure the audit, turned their attention the Judicial Council and are poised to expose the judicial waste of billons of tax payer funds , lost through gross mismanagement at all levels in the state's court system.
As the CJP retained high price lawyer James Wagstaffe to begin litigation aimed to avoid the state audit, those in the highest ranks of the state's court have admitted to being unprepared to fight a social media and Court of Pubic Opinion where judicial corruption has no control, and where the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction.
