Santa Clara County tax payers paid for a prosecutor's tummy tuck, a judge's penis extension, a number of STD treatments , and prescription pain medications for judges and lawyers who are addicted to drugs, alcohol and sex.
Public speaking coaches often tell people to picture an audience naked, to put a speaker at ease. So why not picture your judge naked to ease the stress of appearing in court?
This is why that thought might not be a good one:
Leaked medical files, computer data and review of divorce case files might make that image difficult to swallow. In Santa Clara County judges have medical records that show a history of crabs, tummy tucks and penis extensions. Images sent electronically to the judges of their wives, girlfriends and prostitutes are pornographic and shocking. These images have been sent to the email accounts of public employees.
One judge, a suspected pedophile, had a penis extension. Another had her vagina tightened. (Newsflash: she recently retired) .
Tax payers are beginning to question what is being done with public funds.
The Santa Clara County district attorney's office staff has the highest number of STD treatments when compared to other counties, out numbered locally only by the San Jose police department. In some cases, the medical double dip comes from health coverage paid for a judge, and a government lawyer, working in the same county.
The total cost for the tummy tuck photographed above, was for a now retired prosecutor, whose pain medication addiction also cost tax payers a pretty penny. A well known family law judge also had tax payers foot the bill for her prescription drug addition, and now in fully paid retirement , the judge is continuing to work "for free" to troll for business while acting as a settlement conference officer.
As to confidentiality assured in privacy laws, oh well, these records are about as secure as the records in the county's DV and fee waiver requests, all of which sit in open baskets in the shiny new courthouse for anyone to view the most confidential of information.
For information on how your privacy is being violated in the local courts, contact Ben Rada, the court's Public Information Officer. He can be reached at : email@example.com.
Lisa Herrick, Ben's boss, and regular Q reader, is the court's general counsel who is charged with assuring the court does its job to protect the law and court user's privacy rights. She can answer additional legal questions related to privacy violations in the local courts. She can be reached at : Lherrick@scscourt.org, or catch her hanging out with her new hubby at Salesforce.com.
Lisa is also the go to for blocking your records requests. Want to find out how much Heather Allan, or Rebekah Frye are stealing from the public in their court appointments as lawyers for children? Ben Rada will tell you " no such records exist" and Herrick will instruct the staff to not give you what shows the fraud, as she works as a cover up lawyer for the private lawyers dominating the local courthouse.
Maybe picturing your judge naked won't help being nervous in court, but it may help you realize these judges are not perfect robots who perfectly apply the law in every case. More often these judges were deadbeat lawyers who got appointed to the bench and are merely marking their time as tax payers pick up the bill for their medical costs. Soon they will ride into the sunset with their judicial pension and lifetime medical insurance.
