Study Finds People Are Pissed Off: Elkins Task Force Was a Sham - Cloak for Bad Judges to go UNCHECKED in Family Courts
In 2007 California's Supreme Court recognized that self represented parties were being treated like second class citizens by the state's family courts. A big smoke screen called the Elkins Task Force was formed at tax payer expense and the members of the task force claimed to demonstrate their concern over public outrage and specifically noted they watched videos such as this. It was a farce, a sham and the only one who benefited was Garrett Dailey and all the judges who circled the wagons to spend the next decade treating family court pro pers even worse.
Sanctions that Marriage of Tharp and Marriage of Feldman presented in well known and frequently cited cases are a joke. Judges continue to suppress and ignore discovery. Divorces are dragged out for years, raising billons in fees for court reporters and court costs; all paid on the backs of community property, the future of our children and the most voiceless citizens, those who have no education or training in the law. Those who continue to be forced into corrupt courts with lawyers and judges protecting one another and churning out a living by stealing the livings of hard working families. Theft by FC271 sanctions and judge discretion which is void of reason.
If this video was so shocking in 2010 ,what does the video caught by investigative reporters say about judges and lawyers willing to sing about how much money they steal from family court victims to pay for expensive cars and yachts?
Where are the Elkins Task Force Members now ? Here is what we know- help us find the rest :
# 1- Attorney Anthony Capozzi- He got himself a criminal investigation in less than 10 years. No attorney discipline every imposed by the State Bar before the Sherriff investigated. Fresno crooks circled the wagons and got charges for sneaking contraband into a jail to disappear as Capozzi was appointed to the C JP. Apparently Capozzi is turning the State Bar into Mafia West.
Attorney Garrett Dailey who did the Appeal- He made millions and spent the next ten years of his career becoming a family law insider specializing in litigating against the poor and self represented.
Tani- Cantil - Sakauye- she got herself a nice promotion to the state's highest judicial office where she legally smashes pro per litigants, and turns a blind eye to the thousands of complaints submitted each year by pro pers trying to bring attention to their corrupt and biased family law judges. She rose to power because she was a woman and came from immigrants, so she killed two birds with one stone for the rich white male judiciary as far as appearances go.
Erica Yew- She got herself a Chairperson position at the CJP, as she was appointing attorney Nat Hales to her complex cases in Santa Clara County, despite Nat Hales actually admitting to the State Bar he never filed certifications, and oaths in the county, where he acted in multiple probate and family law cases , stealing millions in fees , without following the law as he did . Santa Clara County DA too busy to investigate.
Patricia Lucas- Said she gave up her $720,000 a year career with Fenwick & West to solve problems , but appears to have used the family courts to ignore attorney misconduct, fee gouging and anything to help her attorney peers. She used the Elkins assignment to launch her court career and was present at the Santa Clara County Bar Association holiday luncheon when her judges and lawyers mocked pro per litigants. And three months into her assignment Q research shows she has ignored complaints against judges with clear signs of dementia ( Mary Ann Grilli ) and those with known incompetence, conflicts and unethical behavior ( James Towery) . Clearly the lesson Ms. Lucas learned from her time on the taskforce was not how to help pro pers, but how to step on them and over them for her own self- serving purposes. Seems she never worried her pretty little head about the millions missing from Santa Clara County trusts because there were billons for her to help steal from family courts and public funds to build a new sparkly family injustice center.
Ms. Linda Daeley- Family Court Manager in Orange County , the same county caught raising fees illegally in traffic courts , a debacle that continues to break California Courts financially. And where David Yamasaki , CEO from Santa Clara County went running as the feds caught up to his misuse of funds building the new sparkly Santa Clara County Family Injustice Center.
Judge Hurwitz of Orange County - Ditto on Traffic Court scandal busting them on stealing from the poor in FBI investigation loaded with fake plea deals and corrupt attorneys judges and court staff.
Joseph Irwin- Promotion from Santa Cruz Court mess to the corrupt and protected Santa Clara County mess, that openly steals money from its citizens.
Judge Barry Goode- Second most corrupt county, Contra Costa, where they jailed court reformer Joe Sweeney and sent hatched judges in to block disqualification motions for the Judicial Council, and same county where Judge Humes doctored a court recording to cover his crimes in the court of appeal .
Ms. Tulin D. Acikalin- Bay Area Legal Aid, where the only aid they give is underrepresenting clients so they get their kids stolen and unlawful support orders when they face celebrities in court.
Judge Alksne - San Diego County- known to be the most corrupt and highest CJP disciplines, before Santa Clara County of course. Judge Alksne avoids discipline , time on Elkins translates to more than judicial immunity .
Judge Kenneth K So - of San Diego - Ditto
Jerilyn Borack - Sacramento County where lawyers and judges like Mathew Gary have sex all over the courthouse with clerks and litigants and where they are all rewarded for protecting the secrets and dirt on now chief Justice Tani Cantil - Sakauye. Tani gives out GET OUT OF CJP COMPLAINTS FOR FREE to all Sacramento court staff and judges.
William Vickery may have tried for the CJP, but the wicked Victoria Henley has increased legal fees and expenses and reduced judge and court staff investigations as she and Tani head off to the mall and private tax payers pay for their security detail.
The recommendations in Elkins are a sham. They served to be a road map for crooked judges and lawyers and family law litigants fell from second class citizens to third world status as they are sanctioned to death, robbed of their children and pickpocketed of their personal property from lazy judges who sit on the benches marking time till their own pensions can be cashed in and private judge assignments like Nancy Perkovich got in the Hayward case. It is beyond unjust. It is beyond criminal and the people are pissed and coming for the crooks!
