Substance Abusing Judges

Should judges be able to thumb their noses at the law and then send other citizens to prison for infractions and law breaking that some judges do everyday?



Letter Says Judge Was Smoking Pot In Drug-Free Zone
Fort Lauderdale NAACP Demands Removal Of Family Court Judge Lawrence Korda


POSTED: 1:02 pm EDT March 22, 2007
UPDATED: 3:38 pm EDT March 22, 2007

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A letter sent to the Judicial Qualifications Commission from the Fort Lauderdale chapter of the NAACP demands that a Broward County judge be removed from the bench amid allegations that he was smoking marijuana in a Hollywood park Sunday.

Marsha A. Ellison, president of the Fort Lauderdale branch of The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, wrote the letter March 20 to Brooke Kennerly, executive director of the commission in Tallahassee. In the letter, Ellison states that the area in which Korda was allegedly smoking the illegal substance was a "drug-free zone with children nearby" and that the judge was "undeserving" of his position.

The letter reads:

"In light of Broward Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Korda being charged with possession and usage of marijuana on Sunday, March 18, 2007, The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) demands his removal from the 17th Judicial Circuit. The revelation that Judge Korda chose to openly use an illegal substance in a drug-free zone with children nearby clearly shows he is undeserving of this important position.

The NAACP finds this behavior disturbing and unacceptable. No judge should violate the laws we all share."

Korda, who was part of the Anna Nicole Smith proceedings, was in Stanley Goldman Park near Hollywood Boulevard on Sunday at about 2 p.m. when police patrolling the park smelled marijuana, followed the scent and found him seated on a bench, police said.

Korda, 59, was not arrested but was issued a notice to appear in court and faces a charge of marijuana possession, according to police.

When asked by a Local 10 reporter about the allegations, Korda said Tuesday that it would be inappropriate to make a comment.

Korda made national news during the Smith case in South Florida when he was assigned to hear pleas from lawyers for Larry Birkhead, an ex-boyfriend of Smith who claims to be the biological father of Smith's baby, Dannielynn. Korda dismissed the paternity action.

The hearing date for the judge, who lives in Hollywood, has been set for April 26.

Poster Child for abolishing immunity for judges?

by Admin, Thursday, 16 October 2008, 04:12 PM email to someone printer friendly
U.S. District Court judge, Edward Nottingham has stepped down from his office following numerous complaints of ethics and judicial code of conduct violations. Nottingham has presided over Colorado's Tenth District Court for almost 20 years. His resignation is effective immediately.

The 60 year old former judge drew public attention last August after parts of his divorce hearings showing he had spent $3000 in one night at a Denver strip club, were made public. Nottingham, whose unsavory conduct had earned him the nickname "Judge Naughty", was also connected by local media agencies to a Denver area prostitution ring known as the Denver Sugar or Denver Players. The divorce case documents also indicate that Nottingham had used a judicial computer to look up an escort service.

Denver's News 9 reports that a prostitute says Nottingham asked her in March to deny their weekly $250-to-$300 an hour sessions if she was questioned by judicial investigators.

Nottingham recently faced charges of judicial misconduct after he mocked an attorney by placing a photograph of a pig wearing lipstick into a court ruling. Although the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals determined that mockery of justice did not warrant a charge of judicial misconduct, a Denver chief Circuit Court judge ruled that Nottingham's conduct had "brought disrespect to the judiciary."

The U.S. District Court in Denver, which is severely backlogged with cases now has a total of three empty benches.

ATTORNEY GENERAL CANDIDATE CHARLOTTE DENNETT AND WORLD RENOWNED
PROSECUTOR VINCENT BUGLIOSI TO DELIVER TO SORRELL A DEBATE CHALLENGE
ON THE JURISDICTION OF PROSECUTING BUSH IN VERMONT

TIME AND PLACE: WILLIAM SORRELL'S OFFICE, 129 STATE ST.,
MONTPELIER; THURSDAY OCTOBER 23, 12 NOON

Dennett and Bugliosi will deliver a debate challenge to her opponent
Sorrell asking him to defend his assertions that Vermont does not
have jurisdiction to prosecute George Bush for starting a war under
false pretenses. Dennett will also hand-deliver a letter to Sorrel's
office.

Vincent Bugliosi's New York Times bestseller, "The Prosecution of
George W. Bush for Murder," provides the evidence and legal framework
for prosecuting Bush in any state, including Vermont. Vermont ranks
highest in the nation for the number of soldiers killed in Iraq, per
capita. Dennett has challenged Sorrell to read the book and its legal
arguments. Dennett has pledged to appoint Bugliosi as Special
Prosecutor should she be elected. Bugliosi is in Vermont now and has
been campaigning with her throughout the state. "The response has
been overwhelmingly positive," says Dennett.

Bugliosi, who prosecuted Charles Manson and wrote the book "Helter
Skelter," has tried 21 consecutive murder cases without a loss.
Leading lawyer and Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said of Bugliosi,
"If you created a hall of fame of prosecutors, Vincent Bugliosi would
be in the entranceway. There's no prosecutor I'd fear more if I were
guilty. He will get at the truth."

Dennett, an investigative reporter, author, and attorney, is also
making the closing of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant a key
part of her campaign. She believes the plant is unsafe and should not
be re-licensed.

Following is the text of the challenge which will he delivered by
Dennott to the attorney general.

Dear Attorney General Sorrell,

I, Charlotte Dennett, and Vincent Bugliosi, who as you know is
campaigning with me, challenge you to a debate titled, "On Whether
Vermont has Jurisdiction to Prosecute George W. Bush for the Deaths of
All Vermont Soldiers who Died Fighting Bush's War in Iraq." You have
asserted a number of times in previous debates that Vermont does not
have the jurisdiction. We disagree strongly and feel the voters
deserve to make a decision based upon the facts on this particular
issue. Please feel welcome to propose a time and place which is
convenient, within the next week. Thank you.

Best Regards,

We walked around Montpelier after and Dennett and Bugliosi served the VT AG, and then talked with those they met on the sidewalks in Montpelier, Vermont.

A woman was with her son. The woman, gave me her full name and business card, and told me she used to be a topless Dancer in Texas at the time George was a "drunk" and was very indiscreet. The woman went on to say George W. Bush was a big cocaine snorter and more about prostitution. Her son seemed more interested when we talked about prosecuting Bush for Heroin and Cocaine trafficking if there was evidence presented. It is only assumed that Bush, like his CIA operative father, used CIA and Military planes to smuggle heroin out of Afghanistan to the US and Cocaine out of South American into the US.

I asked Charlotte Dennett if she prosecute George W. Bush as a drug kingpin in Vermont if it could be proven Bush somehow knew drugs were being sold [scroll down for videos here], the money used for covert operations and weapons, and if Vermonters were harmed. I got a "yes" answer with qualifications. There would probably be a massive turnout to vote for Dennett if there were provable drug charges against Bush. I would like to see him in a Vermont or ANY jail ANYWHERE in the world.

Please donate to Charlotte Dennett even if you don't live in Vermont, you want Bush prosecuted for all the crimes he has committed, don't you? [Donate Here]

The Federal Judicial Whorehouse of Judges

More judges under investigation
Experts call 5 ongoing probes of federal jurists unprecedented
By LISE OLSEN
Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle
Oct. 13, 2008, 12:02AM


U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent is the first federal judge to be indicted for alleged federal sex crimes, but he's only the latest in a string of jurists to face misconduct allegations in 2008, for behavior such as frequenting a topless club or lying under oath.

Nationwide, four other federal judges are being investigated for, among other things, taking cash from lawyers, using an escort service, posting nude photos on a personal Web site and abusing power in court.

The flurry of federal disciplinary activity appears unprecedented under the modern review system, established by Congress in 1980, according to experts and official court statistics.

``As far as I know, we've never had anything like this,'' said Arthur Hellman, a federal judicial disciplinary expert and professor at the University of Pittsburgh law school.

Kent, who sat on the Galveston bench for 17 years before being transferred to Houston last year, is the only federal judge to confront an ongoing public criminal investigation.

He's been indicted but pleaded not guilty to charges he improperly touched a female court employee and attempted to force her to perform oral sex.

He faces a trial on Jan. 26 before U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson of Pensacola, who was specially assigned to oversee the case.

Four other federal judges in California, Colorado and Louisiana confront various stages of judicial disciplinary review - including U.S. District Judge Thomas Porteous Jr. of New Orleans, who is being investigated for possible impeachment by the judiciary committee of the House.

After being granted immunity from prosecution as part of the judicial disciplinary process, Porteous admitted under oath that he filed a bankruptcy under a false name, illegally concealed assets and gambling debts, and accepted thousands of dollars in cash from lawyer friends, according to statements included in case documents released recently by the Fifth Circuit judicial council.

Normally secret

The council made public its normally secret investigative archive, which will be part of the congressional investigation. The Department of Justice's Public Integrity Division, which filed the misconduct complaint against Porteous, chose not to seek an indictment, records show.

He remains on the federal payroll but was recently reprimanded and suspended from hearing cases for two years by the Fifth Circuit judicial council.

Unless impeached, Porteous will continue to collect full pay as a judge, even though he has been stripped of his duties. Kent and a California judge, who both received formal written reprimands, also remain on the bench.

However, Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, the ranking minority member of the House judiciary committee, recently told the Houston Chronicle he believes that Kent's disciplinary matter should receive additional scrutiny immediately, given the indictment.

``Judges should be held to the highest standard, and the allegations against Mr. Kent are severe,'' Smith said in a statement to the Chronicle. ``No one is above law, most especially, judges. I urge the Judicial Conference to consider an immediate review of the claims made by the complainant and make an appropriate recommendation to Congress if necessary.''
Judges defend actions

Meanwhile, two others - judges in Colorado and the 9th Circuit in California - face judicial conduct inquiries for behavior that they have defended as part of their private lives.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Nottingham, of Denver, acknowledged he spent $3,000 in a two-night binge at a topless dance club and used a high-priced escort service. But he defended those actions, part of misconduct complaints, as ``private and personal matters involving human frailties and foibles.''

In California, Alex Kozinski, the 9th Circuit's chief judge, admitted in June that his personal Web site included off-color videos and photos, including one of two naked women depicted as cows revealing bare crotch close-ups. However, the judge also said he mistakenly believed that particular part of his site was not available to the public.
A rare situation

Normally, few complaints against U.S. judges have been considered serious enough to merit forming an investigating committee.

Only 18 of 1,484 complaints filed from September 2004 to September 2007 prompted formation of such judicial investigative committees, according to revised U.S. court statistics. Those committees, made up of judges from the same circuit, do their investigations in secret. Findings are reviewed by judicial councils, who can vote to do nothing, take action privately or, rarely, take public action. Even when discipline is public, allegations can be summarized with little detail.

When Kent, recently indicted for abusive sexual conduct and attempted aggravated sexual assault involving a female employee, was reprimanded last year, the 5th Circuit Judicial Council described the matter as ``sexual harassment.''

That reprimand was one of three public sanctions taken against federal judges in 2006 and 2007.

By comparison, from Sept. 30, 1999, to Sept. 30, 2005, judicial councils reported only four public disciplinary actions, according to official court statistics. A search of electronic public records and media archives reveals details on only one.

No matter how serious the allegations - or criminal charges - accused judges continue to receive full salaries, unless impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives and removed by the U.S. Senate. No federal judge has been impeached since 1989; only seven judges have been removed from office in U.S. history.

Kent continues to work in the federal courthouse, where the woman he is accused of abusing also works.

FEDERAL JUDGES UNDER REVIEW

Public disciplinary action of federal judges is rare, and the investigations are secret. Still, five recent investigations have been made public in 2008:

• U.S. District Judge Samuel B. Kent , Houston

Pleaded not guilty to federal sex crimes charges; previously reprimanded for judicial misconduct in 2007. Nominated by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

• U.S. District Judge Thomas Porteous Jr. , New Orleans

Recommended to be considered for impeachment for allegations of perjury and of improperly accepting gifts and money. Recently reprimanded and suspended from the bench for two years. Nominated by President Clinton in 1994.

• Chief U.S. District Judge Edward W. Nottingham , Denver

A judicial council continues to investigate misconduct allegations, including the judge's admitted use of a topless club and escort service. Nominated by Bush in 1989.

• U.S. District Judge Manuel Real , Los Angeles

Reprimanded for improperly communicating with a litigant; remains under review for complaints about an apparent "pattern and practice" of failing to provide reasons for legal decisions. Nominated by President Johnson in 1966.

• Chief Judge Alex Kozinski , 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California. Requested an investigation by another circuit after admitting in June that his personal Web site contained graphic sexual photos and videos. Nominated by President Reagan in 1985.

Backlash causing judges to be removed?


Kelly MacEachern is the first judge to be removed from Orange County's bench (California).
COURTESY OF KELLY MACEACHERN

O.C. judge plans to appeal ouster
Judge Kelly MacEachern committed 'willful misconduct' by filing false and misleading expense claims, state commission finds.
By RACHANEE SRISAVASDI
The Orange County Register



Orange County Superior Court Judge Kelly MacEachern plans to appeal a state commission's decision to remove her from the bench for allegedly falsifying an expense report and then lying about it while under oath.

Paul Meyer, one of MacEachern's attorneys, said Thursday that an appeal to the Commission on Judicial Performance's decision is "merited," but declined to elaborate.

MacEachern, who just finished presiding over a rape trial in Harbor Justice Center in Newport Beach Wednesday, declined to comment.

"It's very, very hard for her," said her husband, defense attorney Michael B. McClellan. "It's just terribly unfair and harsh. She's had a long and very good career … she's a good judge who is well respected. I'm proud of her and her achievements."

MacEachern – a former prosecutor who won a contested election to the bench in 2002 – is the first judge ever to be removed since the Orange County bench was formed in 1952.

At issue: The judge's alleged misrepresentations in an August 2006 e-mail to a county staffer saying she had "sat in" on two classes on different days and therefore should get approximately $200 in hotel reimbursement.

"The lack of integrity manifested by her misconduct, compounded by her lack of candor in response to the commission's investigation and deceitful testimony under oath … compels our conclusion that removal is necessary to protect the public and maintain public trust in the integrity of the judiciary," the commission wrote.
Last August, the commission began investigating MacEachern after finding out she was not registered for classes she said she attended in the e-mail.

The agency accused her of making "false and misleading assertions" to get reimbursement for a civil law conference held from July 31 to Aug. 4, 2006.

The commission – a mix of judges, lawyers and private citizens who discipline judges – voted 7 to 3 in favor of removing MacEachern, 54. Orange County Superior Court Judge Frederick Horn, the commission's chair, recused himself from the case.

"We are concerned that the traits and lack of judgment that led to the misconduct in this case could lead to future improper actions demeaning to the esteem of the judiciary," the commission also wrote. "This is a risk we cannot run and still fulfill our responsibility to protect the public and the reputation of the judiciary."

In January, MacEachern took the stand in a two-day hearing, calling the e-mail a "badly phrased missive."

"It was never, never my intention to mislead," she told a three-judge panel tasked with investigating her conduct.

But in its decision Thursday, the commission characterized MacEachern's testimony as "calculated, not careless," saying she did not attend either the "Excellence in Judging" class or the domestic violence workshop – despite her representations.

"In an attempt to cover-up her wrongdoing, Judge MacEachern lied not only about the intent of her words, but also about her presence in certain classes," the commission wrote.

"Particularly troubling is Judge MacEachern's willingness to lie under oath to these three (judges) appointed by the Supreme Court," the commission also wrote.

MacEachern was suspended immediately Thursday. The commission's decision becomes final in 30 days, subject to discretionary review by the state Supreme Court.

Local judges have been admonished and censured before, but none has been ousted.

Statewide, 23 other judges have been removed by the commission or the state Supreme Court, according to the commission's director Victoria Henley. Most of the cases also involve findings of willful misconduct – the most serious grounds for judicial censure or removal.

Tom Petters, International Scammer, a Flight Risk

I just talked by phone with a victim who was swindled out of millions. He says Tom Petters probably bought one of his airplanes just with the millions, he stole from him. There are countless other victims, and complicit judges are the main culprits for this abuse being so blatant and widespread. US Congressman and US Senators, such as Patrich Leahy, have been informed of this problem. There are a number of us out to film and document these courageous efforts.

Hedge Funds Snared In Alleged Fraud At Petters Group



By Joseph Checkler, Hans Schoemaker and David Walker

Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Alleged fraud at Petters Group Worldwide has already led to the ouster of the private company's chief executive, but it's also causing pain for several hedge funds around the world.

Already, Swiss fund-of-hedge-funds manager Gottex Fund Management has cited exposure to Petters, Minnetonka, Minn., as one of the reasons it's closing its fund of funds that does asset-based direct lending to companies.

The alleged fraud at Petters, which was founded by Tom Petters, goes back to the 1990s and involves Petters Co. Inc., a subsidiary of Petters Group. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been investigating allegations that Petters' managers produced fake documents and showed them to their investors stating they were reselling goods at a profit. Petters Group's Tom Petters, who denies the charges, resigned as chief executive Monday.

Hedge funds are involved in a few ways: Some may be investors in Petters, and others, like Gottex, have investments in hedge funds that lent money to the company through their asset-based lending funds. Petters, a holding company that owns brands such as Polaroid, Sun Country Airlines, Fingerhut and Mr. Coffee, was founded in 1988 and has about $2 billion in annual sales.

Toronto-based Northwater Capital Management Inc., an $8 billion-plus asset manager with more than $4 billion in hedge fund of funds, also disclosed this week that some of its funds of funds are exposed to Petters.

"If the allegations are true, NCMI believes that it will have a material negative impact on the net asset value of the trusts," Northwater said in a Monday statement. Two separate Northwater funds had 4.3% and 2.5% of their assets invested in Petters. A Northwater spokesman said the company wouldn't comment beyond the release. Northwater and Gottex, which make direct investments to several different individual hedge funds, would not name the funds that were exposed to Petters.

However, some individual hedge funds have already taken Petters to court.

One hedge fund, Minneapolis-based Interlachen Capital Group, sued Petters on Monday in federal court, saying it gave Petters $60 million to buy electronic equipment that was used for another purpose. Petters offered "imaginary televisions as collateral," according to Interlachen's complaint.

Last month, according to court documents, another asset-based lender, Acorn Capital Group of Greenwich, Conn., sued Petters in New York's Southern District, demanding money for one of its loans. The suit names Thomas Petters himself, but not Petters Group.

Gottex has been forced to temporarily halt redemptions from its ABI Fund until it is able to assess the value of the portfolio, a spokesman confirmed, citing the Petters Group exposure as the main reason.

"As soon as more information regarding the Petters Group-related investments becomes available, the ABI Fund will endeavor to bring the period of suspension to an end as promptly as possible," the group said in a statement.

Gottex's asset-backed lending fund predominantly invests in hedge funds that make direct loans to borrowers, taking control over their assets as security. Its asset-backed investing fund does the same thing, but also invests in some of the companies it makes loans to.

Petters Group is no stranger to dealing with hedge funds. In October 2006, Andrew Redleaf's Minneapolis-based hedge fund Whitebox Advisors went in on a deal with Petters Group to buy Sun Country Airlines, with each side taking a 50% stake. Petters, through its Petters Aviation affiliate, bought all of Whitebox's stake by November 2007. The airline has struggled since, along with the rest of the industry.

Richard Hettler's testimony to Congress and the US Senate, regarding Petters and the Banking Scandals





* * * *

US District Judge Ann Montgomery ordered the seizure of the Petters companies’ assets at the DOJ’s request and has frozen the personal accounts of individuals charged or under suspicion. But according to a St. Paul Pioneer Press article, she repeatedly thwarted an investor’s attempt to obtain $1.3 million he says was stolen from him by Petters Company, Inc.

Richard Hettler, who started investing with Petters in 1997, claims PCI gave him two hot checks totaling that amount in January 1998 in payment of promissory notes. He sued in 2002 but Montgomery not only dismissed it, she barred him from filing further lawsuits over the notes. In 2005, when Petters announced that he was buying Polaroid, Hettler went public with his accusations, only to have Montgomery grant a restraining order against him at Petters’ request. And in Decemeber of 2006, Montgomery granted a Petters motion to hold Hettler in contempt of court for posting “inflammatory” material online, and ordered the material removed.

There’s much more; read the whole story here.

Excerpt:
Tom Petters’ arrest on fraud charges in October 2008 was not
his first encounter with the law. Back in 1990, he was c h a r g e d i n
Colorado with forgery and fraud in a bad-checks case. Nobody would
know about it, though, because Petters got a Minnesota court to erase his
Colorado record. In 1994, the Hennepin County Attorney agreed to wipe
the Colorado case off the books. As a result, investors checking into
Petters’ reputation and record couldn’t find out about those fraud charges.
After that victory in Minnesota state court, Petters went on to win
favorable rulings in federal court here. In 2002, Judge Ann Montgomery
threw out a lawsuit that an investor, Richard
Hettler, had filed against Petters. Not only
that, but Montgomery later barred Hettler
from filing any further suits over amounts he
alleged Petters owed him.
In the fall of last year, Petters knocked on
Montgomery’s courthouse door again. At
his side was Doug Kelley, a lawyer he had
just hired to represent his companies.
Kelley went way back with Montgomery.
They had been law school classmates at
the University of Minnesota. During the
late ’70s and early ’80s, they worked
together in the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Montgomery was asked to freeze some of Petters’
assets, the ones that were related to the alleged Ponzi scheme, and she
did so on October 3rd, 2008, a Friday. Her court order was issued ex
parte, meaning that the other side—Petters’ creditors—were not given
the opportunity to make their case against the asset freeze. On the
following Monday, Montgomery gave Kelley sweeping powers as
receiver over Petters’ assets—all of them this time, not just the ones
implicated in the Ponzi.
Meanwhile, numerous creditors were suing Petters in different states.
Montgomery was asked to halt all those lawsuits in their tracks, which she
did with an indefinite “stay on litigation.” That wasn’t all. She gave Kelley
“judicial immunity,” the same protection from lawsuits that judges enjoy.
As one national bankruptcy law expert has said, “To be given absolute
immunity, judicial immunity, so far as I know, is unprecedented in the
bankruptcy context.”

I wonder if I, and other citizens abused in Connecticut by the Connecticut State Police, in the Courts, by DCF, and other authorities, violated by an organized bunch of lawbreakers paid with tax dollars, can be brought to justice using the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871.

Former DCF Worker Admits To Drugging Co-Workers

BY CHRISTINE DEMPSEY | The Hartford Courant
12:43 PM EDT, October 6, 2008


A former state Department of Children and Families worker who is serving an eight-year sentence for drugging and fondling a co-worker in 2004 pleaded guilty today to drugging three other co-workers in 2001 and 2002.

John Peloso III, 44, of Glastonbury, pleaded guilty under the Alford doctrine to three counts of second-degree assault before Judge David Gold in Superior Court in Hartford. Under the Alford doctrine, a defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that the state has enough evidence to convict.

The three women in the 2001 and 2002 cases told police they became sick and passed out after taking drinks from Peloso. In one case, a woman woke up in Peloso's bed and said he told her they had consensual sex, prosecutor David Zagaja said.

The women came forward after they learned of Peloso's case from August 2004, when he drugged a fourth co-worker from DCF and fondled her. That woman testified in a trial that Peloso took photos of her while she was naked and semi-conscious.

Peloso, who was fired by DCF, is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 27 on the most recent cases.
