As public attention begins to wane with regard to Judge Persky, litigants trapped in Santa Clara County's criminal and family courts appear to be paying a high price for the recent media attention that brought a spotlight to the county's legal system and individual judges in that system.
Members of Anonymous and whistleblowers deep inside Santa Clara Courts have reported the county's highest ranking administrators have engaged in a deliberate and systemic effort to " scrub' the reputation of specific judges, lawyers, vocational examiners, forensic CPAs and custody experts, while also working to conceal years of administrative failures that have served to cost tax payers millions and resulted in extreme civil rights violations for Santa Clara County litigants.
Santa Clara County also appears to be trying to restrict media access and watchdog oversight by limiting public information and access to public court proceedings.
This website , now receiving over 14,000 new visitors each day, came under fire after posting verified information about the county's misuse of public funds and specific information involving nefarious family lawyer, Brad Baugh, who has been linked to what appears to be RICO violations involving other heavy hitters in the Santa Clara County Family Law Community; Nat Hales, Rich Roggia, Nedda Ledgerwood, Heather Allan, James Butera, Valerie Houghton, BJ Faden, Tim Harper, Judge Mary Ann Grilli and Judge Towery .
Ironically one post we were required to defend under Shield Laws and the Fair Trade Act involved factual information we had received that confirmed that Judge Persky was the only judge in Santa Clara County to ever disqualify Brad Baugh from a case.
Was Brad Baugh behind the deals with the Santa Clara County DA to expose Judge Persky? Is the county suppressing information that is favorable to Persky's record? Is the county managing the misconduct of public information officer Joe Macaluso?
Some say given Baugh's network and his prior connections to tech icon and Stanford Professor David Cheriton, combined with current representation of clients like Oliver Garbe, Robert Bassi and Evan Brooks, that it is more than possible. It may be why Brad Baugh appears to receive special immunity protection from the DA, Jeff Rosen.
At the same time as this site and local reporters were under attack by Santa Clara County Court Officials, the local Metro News was uncovering the county's abuse and misuse of court translators , where complaints have been ignored for decades and where former and current litigants involved in family and criminal cases may have been substantially harmed. Complaints against the county's misuse of these critical court services, in an area with a large number of non- English speaking litigant, equates of the conduct seen in other counties that brought the attention of the U. S. Attorney General .
In addition to this site, insiders have reported that locally based YELP, Change.org and Twitter received unusual complaints that appear to be linked to Santa Clara County lawyer and State Bar Newsletter editor, Brad Baugh, and people known to be connected to him. The complaints appear to be an attempt to scrub information about individuals connected to Santa Clara family courts and cut out media and public oversight related to criminal and family law cases in the county.
In 2 Days Anonymous shut Brad Baugh and all of his cronies down. Members of Anonymous Family Court continue to help battle the governmental forces and corrupt court entities that seek to violate the civil and due process rights of family and criminal litigants in Santa Clara County's Courts.
Cheers to Change.Org for keeping up the many petitions , with nearly 2.000,000 signatures, that have been bringing attention to the Santa Clara County Judicial Bench.
Cheers to Robing Room for refusing to remove bad reviews against Santa Clara County Judges.
Cheers to the Metro for exposing issues related to court translators used in Santa Clara County litigation.
BOO! to YELP, for succumbing to the pressure to remove bad reviews against Santa Clara County lawyers , CPAs , vocational examiners and custody evaluators. PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW!
BOO! to all the judges in Santa Clara. This week our court watchers, media investigators and others found judges to be retaliating against litigants whom family law attorneys had linked to this site and other local groups critical of Santa Clara County Courts.
Anonymous members are concerned that attention they have brought to Santa Clara County Courts appears to be resulting in moms, dads and children being punished in their family law cases. Judicial retaliation against parents has been seen in the form of : outlandish sanctions ( Over $200,000), custody removals, unlawful child support calculations, personal property loss, fee waiver denials, an escalation of contempt charges related to custody disputes and an escalation of appeals arising from Santa Clara County family law cases.
There also appears to be an upsurge in the number of complaints lodged against the county family law judges , all of which have been ignored by the county and Commission on Judicial Performance, as the mainstream media has primarily focused on Persky.
Further court insiders report that an alarming number of Sunnyvale family case files have " gone missing", and Sunnyvale courthouse judges appear to have been instructing court clerks, court reporters and other court staff to violate the law .
Santa Clara County also appears to be desperately trying to conceal information related to the gross mismanagement of public funds given flagrant and unlawful management of court staff and resources imposed by some of the county's most experienced judges.
