A Movement to Hold Judges Accountable for Their Illegal Actions

Recent articles are beginning to take seriously what homeowners have been saying for more than a decade — that a separate set of rules applies to foreclosures that are biased against consumers, borrowers and homeowners. Those “new” rules are a departure to the rules of due process, evidence and burden of proof in every other civil action.

Now movements are gaining strength to confront situations where judges are in rebellion against the laws they are supposed to enforce. TILA Rescission is only one example. The statute says one thing and the courts “interpret” away provisions they don’t like. The US SUpreme Court tells them there is no room for interpretation and still the courts ignore even their boss of bosses. There are hundreds of other examples in foreclosure litigation where presumptions arise from fabricated documents, facially invalid documents, void documents, and other documents prepared by people who have a stake in the outcome of the litigation.

I don’t agree with all the proposals stated below, especially the ones where judges could be sued for ruling unfavorably to a litigant, but the point is that judges are inventing law rather than following it and for that they should be held accountable in some real meaningful manner. Invention of law is the exclusive province of the legislative branch of government.

When foreclosures were simple, judges made very sure on their own that the paperwork was in order before ordering the sale of property. After all, losing one’s homestead is the most drastic loss a homeowner can endure, roughly the equivalent of capital punishment in criminal law.

Now that banks clouded the scene with apparent complexity, judges are blindly following the herd and are not scrutinizing the paperwork to see if it makes sense. In most cases it doesn’t make sense and extrinsic evidence, rather than clarifying, presents more obscurity and calls for legal presumptions rather than actual facts.

The result is that foreclosures are granted to parties who will never see the proceeds of forced sale of the property. Homeowners’ defenses are not technical. In addition to defending their home they are the only warriors who are battling against the current practices of fabrication, fraud and misrepresentation of investment banks operating under the cover of “securitization” that never occurred.

These mega banks are still pursuing of strategy of protecting ill-gotten gains and collecting more ill-gotten gains. The only two real parties in interest — investors who put up the money and borrowers who took the money are left out in the cold with virtually no remedies to protect themselves.

It’s a combination of laziness and willful ignorance that keeps allowing illegal foreclosures to proceed. Add a dash of politics and you have decisions based upon one thing: if the borrower doesn’t pay or stops paying it makes no difference whether the party demanding payment had any right to it.

Instead of being careful to provide a remedy to a party with a real economic stake in the outcome, the courts have nearly uniformly sought only punishment of borrowers who don’t pay, even if there is nobody identified who is entitled to receive payment.

Here is one example that I don’t know much about but in principle I support it:

A. The need for individual parties to join forces to expose the all-powerful class of judges

1. No doubt ‘we [litigants, advocates of honest judiciaries, and those who have experienced or witnessed judges’ abuse of power] are all supporting our own fight’, as one put it. This means that we are fighting separately against a solidly united and all-powerful class of judges. As a result, we stand no chance against them. We fight alone only for our collective assured defeat.

 

2. Judges wield power over We the People’s property, liberty, and the rights and duties that frame our lives. One federal judge can suspend nationwide a president’s executive order. Federal judges are the only officers, whether public or private, to hold a lifetime appointment; they are unimpeachable and irremovable in practice: Only 8 federal judges have been impeached and removed in the last 230 years since the creation of the Federal Judiciary in 1789(*>jur21§a). Judges close ranks to protect the benefits(*>OL:173¶93) that they grab by abusing their power and maintain their status as a privileged class:

 

3. After President Trump disparagingly referred to the judge presiding over the fraud case brought against Trump University as “the so-called judge”, Then-Judge Gorsuch commented on that reference thus:

 

“An attack on one of our brothers or sisters in the robe is an attack on all of us”(>OL2:527).

 

4. Through that comment, J. Gorsuch revealed judges’ gang mentality. People with that mentality have no respect for rules. They do not ask themselves whether the “attack” was legally or ethically justified or had the “appearance of impropriety”(*>jur:68fn123a) and was to be avoided. Their only concern is to protect their power through intimidation, abuse, and retaliation. Judges’ gang has all the power in their turf, the courts(*>OL:267§4), where they can disregard the law and the rules and conjure up their own or simply suit themselves.

 

5. Indeed, Then-Judge Kavanaugh and his peers and colleagues in the District of Columbia Circuit dismissed 100% of the 478 complaints lodged against them and denied 100% of the petitions for review of those dismissals in the 2006-2011 11-year period(>OL2:748). This holds true for the other circuits(OL2:548; *>jur:10-14). Federal judges ensure their unaccountability by in effect abrogating instead of applying the Judicial Conduct and Disability Act(jur:24§b) that allows anybody to file a complaint against them. This statement is based on the judges’ official statistics(>OL2:795§C) submitted to Congress and the public annually(jur:28fn34b) as required under 28 U.S.C. §604(h)(2)(jur:2623a).

6. Judges abuse their power because they can do so risklessly by complicitly practicing reciprocal exoneration from complaints (OL2:792) as well as coordination, knowing indifference, and willful ignorance and blindness of their abuse(jur:88§§a-b).

 

7. By contrast, you, I, and millions of parties have only one personal, local case that each of us prosecutes alone before a judge. Why would that judge do what is right in that one case and thereby antagonize for the rest of her professional life her peers and colleagues, the very ones willing to protect her from 100% of complaints(>OL2:792but who can also deem her unreliable and a traitor and ostracize her(jur:56§e)It is safer and more beneficial for the judge simply to do what is harmonious(OL2:464) with her and the other judges’ interests and be done with it.

 

8. The other two branches of government are too afraid(>OL2:644¶2, 610¶16, 505¶2; *>jur:23fn17) of the judges’ power to subject the judiciary to the constitutional checks and balances which those branches could exert on the judiciary.

 

9. That being so, what chance does each of us stand alone against a judge, never mind on appeal to a panel or a council of his or her colleagues and peers? None. If we all continue supporting only our own fight separately, we attract the application to us of Einstein’s aphorism: “Doing the same thing while expecting a different result is the hallmark of irrationality”, for it betrays the belief that the wishful thinking in our head is also outside as part of the real world.

 

10… Therefore, we have no choice: We either join forces to have a fighting chance against the power abusive class of judges or we all exhaust our capacity for work, time, and emotional and financial resources in a futile gasp for justice.

 

B. Joining forces while applying the fundamental principle of any organization: division of labor

 

11… If we join forces, we can form a national civic movement for judicial abuse of power exposure, redress, and reform(*>jur:164§9). To that end, each of us has to concentrate her or his effort, time, and resources on what each can do best.

 

12… I can conduct professional law research and writing, and engage in strategic thinking(OL2:445§B, 475§D). For proof, I have produced a 2-volume study of judges and their judiciaries, titled and downloadable for free thus:

Exposing Judges’ Unaccountability 
and Consequent Riskless Wrongdoing: 

Pioneering the news and publishing field of 
judicial unaccountability reporting

Open the downloaded files in Adobe Reader, https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/acrobat/pdf-reader.html so that you can open the Menu bar >View >>Navigation Panels >Bookmarks panel and use the bookmarks that make navigating to the numerous(* †>parenthetical references) very easy.

 

13… You have proved your superior skills as business people. For proof, there are your companies, law firms, and business contacts.

 

14… You can put them to good use to help form the national civic movement described in the Introduction to the Programmatic Presentation and its Outline hereunder. How you can do that is also described therein. Succinctly stated, you can:

 

a. share and post to websites and social media as widely as possible the email version of the Programmatic Presentation or hand out at your meetings its 1-sheet of paper version at >OL2:818-819 and include in your printed materials its 2-sheet of paper version at821-824;

 

b. gather a group of your friends, colleagues, and investors to whom I can make the Presentation in person upon an all-expenses paid invitation; otherwise, via video conference;

 

c. donate to the work of Judicial Discipline Reform using the button and link below, and participate in fund-raising as discussed next.

 

C. The fundraising labor: No meaningful endeavor can be advanced without money; and money can be made while doing right

 

15… Moral support is necessary to fortify the spirit and keep going. But it is not sufficient… Politicians and judges ask and receive donations or grab money to remain in office or spend it on themselves and their cronies(*>jur:32§2, 81fn169). They do so with disregard for the law and the rules and to the detriment of parties to cases. To assert one’s rights before them money is also necessary, for asserting them requires more than simply prosecuting one’s case.

16… Every party to a case, even a pro se and all the more so a party paying attorney’s fees, knows how expensive it is to pursue one’s quest for justice in one’s personal, local case.

 

17… However, we are doing much more: We are trying to expose a judiciary that has institutionalized abuse of power as its modus operandi(*>jur:49§4). Our ‘case’ is so much greater and so are the expenses. Such exposure cannot be done for free or even on the cheap. It is an expensive endeavor. Hence, we need to raise funds.

 

18… But if the people who have money do not donate precisely because they were asked for money, and the people who do not have money do not donate precisely because they do not have money, who helps finance our Labor for Justice? That Labor is bigger than each of us since it is in behalf of We the People.

 

1. A business plan lays out the purpose of raising funds

 

19. To learn about the purpose for which money is necessary, review the Table of Contents(>OL2:563) of my for-profit business plan. In brief:

20. First of all, the plan envisages the enhancement of the website at http://Judicial-Discipline-Reform.org. Currently, the site provides free access to my articles. Visitors to it have found them so informative and appealing to their needs that as of this writing 25,105 have subscribed to the site. Let this call to mind the Wright Brothers flying their airplane if only for a few seconds in the presence of investors to show them that they had a viable product worth investing in its development…

 

21. The enhancement of the site will turn it into both a clearinghouse for the public to upload their complaints against judges and a research center(*>OL:274-280) for them to search complaints for the most convincing types of evidence: patterns and trends(*>OL:304-307) of judges’ abuse (as opposed to the anecdotic story of one complainant’s personal, local case), and schemes resulting from judges’ coordinated, structured, and on-going abuse(>OL2:614).

 

22. Similarly, an investment in an investigation by Information Technology experts can reveal how judges’ intercept their critics’ communications(>OL2:781) in violation of our First Amendment “freedom of speech, of the press, and the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievance”(>OL2:792¶1). Bankrolling(OL2:720¶m) that investigation can earn investors money and name recognition.

 

23. Money is both needed for, and can be made by, calling parties to join the movement to participate in the nationwide demand for:

a. the refund of court filing fees because of judges’ intentional failure to read the vast majority of briefs(>OL2:608§A), which they require parties to produce and file; and

 

b. the reimbursement for $1,000s and even $10,000s that a brief costs to research, investigate through discovery, support with a record, write, print, bind, serve, file, argue, etc. Judges make the money, effort, and time spent on the brief go to waste when they do not even read it, and cannot base their disposition of the case on it.

 

24. Judges should be held liable for the damages that they cause -as they do malpracticing doctors and lawyers, abusive police officers, pedophilic priests, etc.- and the fraud that they commit by having clerks dispose of cases by rubberstamping dumping forms: unresearched, unreasoned, arbitrary, fiat-like summary orders.(OL2:760)

 

2. The Dissatisfied with The Judicial and Legal System will be a source of funds as they rally to the enhanced website and the national civic movement

 

25. People need food as a matter of life or death. Yet, farmers make money by selling their crops and animals; and storekeepers by selling food to their customers; and restaurateurs by preparing and serving it to diners. Also, people must pay their doctors and hospitals to recover their health and stay healthy; and they pay their attorneys to defend everything that is vital to them, including their home, their liberty, and their life(OL2:455§B).

26. Likewise, we can draw to the website and the national civic movement the The Dissatisfied with The Judicial and Legal System: They are parties to the more than 50 million new cases filed in the state and federal courts every year(*>jur:8fn4,5), to whom must be added the hundreds of millions of cases pending and deemed to have been wrongly or wrongfully decided. The Dissatisfied constitute a huge(OL2:719¶¶6-8) untapped voting bloc. We canrequest them to:

 

a. donate, as do the people who support the Women’s March, political candidates and parties, and charities;

 

b. pay membership dues, as required by websites to have access to their premium contents;

 

c. pay fees for services that they make use of, such as the website’s research center, legal education, training in litigation, consulting and strategizing, advocacy, and representation(*>jur:153§§c-g), etc. Their offering can lead to the creation of the Institute of Judicial Unaccountability Reporting and Reform Advocacy(*>jur:130§5);

 

d. pay to buy, or have their complaints verified and edited for inclusion in, publications, e.g., how-to manuals on detecting and exposing abuse(*>OL:274-280, 304-307), and demanding redress; and The Annual Report on Judicial Unaccountability and Wrongdoing in America(*>jur:122§§2-3);

 

e. buy tickets to attend, or pay to advertise at, the first-ever and national, multidisciplinary, multimedia, and interactive conference on judges’ abuse of power(*>jur:97§1; *>dcc:11; OL:42);

 

f. pay to buy or use products, e.g., the software to be based on artificial intelligence for innovative statistical, linguistic, and literary auditing of judges’ writings(*>OL:42; jur:131§b); etc.

 

3. Funds are needed to support the current effort

 

27… Conducting professional law research and writing causes an opportunity loss: The effort, time, and resources employed therein cannot be employed in a gainful activity. Neither can those employed to email and mail the articles produced; and to deal with replies received by email, mail, and phone, which itself consumes substantial resources.

 

28… The loss of money that does not come in is only aggravated by the money that must go out to:

 

a. pay the website hosting company and the Internet Service Provider;

 

b. buy computer equipment and office supplies;

 

c. run the office, which entails rent and utilities; etc.

 

29… Money is also needed to:

 

a. travel and stay at hotels to deliver at various venues(*>OL:197§G) the Programmatic Presentation(OL2:823) on forming the national civic movement,

 

b. promote the proposed unprecedented citizen hearings(>OL2:812§E) at universities and media outlets for journalism professors and news reporters to take testimony from victims of, and witnesses to, judges’ abuse;

 

c. interview prospective members of the team of professionals needed to form the movement;

 

d. hire a team and open and run an office for them, as described in the business plan(see also §F infra); etc.

 

30… This effort and expense intended to benefit the many should not be borne by only one.

 

D. The most favorable public mood for fundraising and national civic movement formation

 

31. The funds raised can reasonably be expected to effectively and profitably form a national civic movement for judicial abuse exposure, redress, and reform because nationwide social events have generated the most favorable public mood therefor:

32. On November 8, 2016, candidate Trump was elected president. Yet, in less than 2½ months, on January 21, 2017, a barely known organization, the Women’s March, was able to stage in Washington, D.C., and other cities the largest demonstration in American history to date, with several million participants. The call of the Women’s March to protest bigotry, hate, salary inequality, boardroom discrimination, etc., was heard by a public largely attuned to it.

33. The New York Times and The New Yorker, published their exposés of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse on October 5 and 10, 2017, respectively.  Literally, in only a few days the MeToo!movement began to emerge everywhere. Since then it has widely given voice to, and stirred up, a public mood of intolerance of any form of abuse.

 

34. Today that mood is expressed in a rallying cry that the public will shout at judges once it is informed of the nature, extent, and gravity of their abuse, and becomes outraged at them:

 

Enough is enough!
We won’t take any abuse by anybody,
not even judges,
anymore.

 

E. The most opportune political season for politicians to expose judges

 

35. The 2020 election campaign has started. Nine of the possibly more than 25 presidential candidates have declared. Each of them needs a national issue that elevates him or her above the pack and brings in indispensable donations, campaign volunteers, and positive word of mouth. The sooner they recognize the huge untapped voting bloc of The Dissatisfied with The Judicial and Legal System, the sooner they and others will try to win them over.

36. We need funds to rally The Dissatisfied to our movement so that it is there where principled and opportunistic(OL2:610§3) politicians find them informed about, and outraged at, judges’ abuse, and making precise demands for exposing the judges, seeking redress for the abused, and reforming the judiciary to empower the People to hold judges accountable and liable.

 

F. The symbiotic relation between the media and the movement

 

37. As the Dissatisfied rally to us, the commercial and social media will find it in their interest to cover the formation of the movement. A reciprocally reinforcing process will develop between the media and the movement in formation:

a. The movement will provide the media an issue that sells copy and the media will provide the movement coverage that will attract ever more people informed about, and outraged at, judges’ abuse. Fundraising is necessary to launch and accelerate this process.

38. That model of symbiotic relationship between investigative journalism outlets, such as International Consortium of Investigative Journalists(*>OL:1) and ProPublica(jur:86¶193), and the national media can be used by us:

a. The national media, even local stations, can pursue available investigative leads to two unique national stories(OL:194§E) or sponsor and/or buy the findings of the investigation and research(OL:60, 115, 255) conducted by the team of professionals guiding the formation of the movement.

39. First, we must show that we have something worth buying or sponsoring. To produce it, we must attract a team of competent and committed professionals(*>jur:128§4), who will command a commensurate salary, even as they participate in an academic and business venture(jur:119§1).

 

40. If we divide the labor and each of us works on his or her share of it, we can form the movement, hold judges accountable and liable, and even make money. We can also earn something of much greater and longer-lasting value: The national recognition by a gratefulPeople as their Champions of Justice.

passion for justice are.

  1. Considering that in my case Judicial con artist Robert Senechalle was a brother-in-law to the top partner of the law Firm who represented Wells Fargo bank in my case, it was perfectly fine for him to criminally conceal documents in my case based on which he helped criminals to steal my property.

    NOBODY can provide me these documents – yet all other so-called judges still rule in favor for Wells Fargo lawyers – of course, these judges got handsome donations from them

  2. More than judges. Orders long handed down. Politically — a financial nightmare. Orders

    Seem to posting now again — with continued ask for log in — hope not traced.

  3. Considering that judge in my case was having ex parte meetings by phone or in person with opposing counsel say lots. Also, my statement was taken out of the transcript of my trial against foreclosure, etc. Also, I had a woman following me around at The Reg. of Deeds office to see what I was doing and trying to prevent me from looking for documents I needed. They are all in it together including the Appellate Court.
