Santa Clara County Bar Association Luncheon Song Lyrics Released- Public Demands Removal of All Judges Attending the Holiday Event
CALL TO REMOVE ALL SANTA CLARA COUNTY JUDGES ATTENDING HOLIDAY LUNCHEON HOSTED SANTA CLARA COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION
On the Monday before Christmas, the Commission on Judicial Performance, in between their lavish holiday parties, revealed that Judge Persky would not face discipline for his sentencing of Brock Turner, the white Stanford felony convicted rapist, whom Persky ordered to spend just six months in jail.
Meanwhile, and unnoticed by mainstream media, a lawsuit was filed in San Francisco, suing the Commission on Judicial Performance for its failure to investigate and discipline Judge Moss, a judge who stole the homes and life savings of elderly citizens, as he confidentially stood behind the cloak of judicial immunity and an emasculated Commission of Judicial Performance, the state funded agency that has been letting crooked judges run amok for decades.
This lawsuit, filed by the highly-respected Patrick Evans, seeks to hold judges accountable for criminal conduct that has likely harmed thousands, if not millions, of Californians.
SHOULD JUDGES ALSO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR CONDUCT OUTSIDE THE COURTROOM THAT VIOLATES PUBLIC TRUST IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM?
Most people who have faced a judge in traffic court, divorce court, or probate court think the answer to that question should be YES.
Santa Clara County Court Clerks and Whistleblowers who are fed up with the outright criminal conduct of family law judges in Santa Clara County decided to expose crooked judges and lawyers in another way.
Just after the Thanksgiving holiday, Whistleblowers contacted investigative reporters they knew to be covering Santa Clara County divorce cases for the past year. Whistleblowers slipped the media and advocates information and requested they photograph the Santa Clara County Bar Association holiday luncheon, where judges and lawyers were historically in attendance (as confimed in a court hearing on December 21, 2016 by Judge Towery).
On December 2, 2016, when the music started, Santa Clara County judges and lawyers broke out in song and laughed about all the money they earn in Silicon Valley divorce and custody cases. Santa Clara County citizens deal with probate and divorce cases are furious over lyrics, and the judges and lawyers who sang them.
Judges Greenwood, Huber, Weinstein, Emede, Pegg, Rudy, Grilli, Towery, Scott and Judge Persky were celebrated by Santa Clara County lawyers who sang about the pleadings they file from their “expensive yachts”, as the judges get them “to the bank tonight “.
Ironically they song lyrics include Judge Scott helping to get them a Mercedes Benz. Judge Scott was recently disciplined by the CJP, for all the good it did.
Self-represented parents who have been sanctioned and unable to pay their own legal fees based on these same judges were not anused by the song lyrics or by the judges and lawyers who sang them. Many are demanding to know why judges are in attendance at these gatherings.
When the judges learned they had been photographed, an all-out war on the media and local court reform advocates ensued.
Judge Towery, known to be one of the most corrupt and ethically deficient judges in California, and who organizes court staffers and other judges attending such events through his private Gmail account, denied one advocate back child support owed to her for the past two years, and just four days before Christmas, as Brad Baugh (Santa Clara County Bar Association’s newsletter editor) was able to get Judge Towery to rule that a father, Robert Bassi, didn’t have to pay child support on income he earned from passive dividends, just like Brad Baugh had convinced Judge Grilli she didn’t have to award child support for Iris Cheriton on the $542,000,000 Stanford professor David Cheriton held in stock back in the late 1990’s. The Court of Appeal said Judge Grilli was wrong.
As Towery choked down his luncheon on December 2, he did so with little concern over two rulings in cases before him where he rendered one mother and child homeless for the holidays , and sent another 20 month old child to overnight visits with former 49er Ray McDonald, despite McDonald facing criminal rape charges, and charges for violating a restraining order against the child’s mother in Janauary 2017.
See the video of Mc Donald beating the mother of his child in 2015, as she held McDonald's two month old son.
A private investigation, sparked by a whistleblower tips, shows that Santa Clara County judges, specifically Judge Towery, may be using personal Gmail accounts to not only coordinate these “private events” , but also to collect and provide favors, gifts and kickbacks to lawyers and other judges in a manner that may be outright criminal.
It is reported that Towery has accepted free 49er tickets, publishing services and other personal perks using these Gmail accounts, and then issuing rulings in divorce and custody cases without lawfully disclosing conflicts of interests.
Court files show Towery, like other Santa Clara County Judges, repeatedly deny fees to the most needy parents and children, while assuring other lawyers like Elise Mitchell and Brad Baugh make millions in fees, converted from community property or unpaid child support.
Other Judges like Greenwood, are rewarded in other ways. Following the county Bar luncheon, rumors began to fly that Greenwood would soon be appointed to the Sixth District Court of Appeal, where she can ensure the cycle of cronyism persists.
Members of Q Are Demanding Every Judge Attending the Holiday Luncheon Resign or be Removed by the CJP.
Since Canon 3 of the Judicial Code of Ethics requires judges to address attorney misconduct, many are saying these judges should all be disciplined for failing to report lawyers who attended, or were connected to the luncheon, given the violation the of public trust the luncheon appears to have caused.
Q Members are also demanding the State Bar, or the State Auditor Investigate just how much lawyers and law firms involved in this luncheon have earned in fees and sanctions, as awarded by the judges who were in attendance.

Q Members are also demanding an investigation to determine how much tax payers had to pay for the Santa Clara County Sheriffs who were either in attendance as guests for the event, or as security , where the only security they appear to have provided is investigating members of the media covering the event, not the crooked judges and lawyer who attended it.
Please sign the petition demanding the removal of all judges who mocked the poor and our children this holiday season.
