Unbelievable you say? Unless the New York Times is making this up, it’s true!
Followers of this judicial corruption site, Leon Koziol.com, may already know that its sponsor, civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, has had his law license suspended for nearly nine years. Never even accused of a crime, the suspension traces itself to a conscientious stand against his profession regarding father discrimination, federal funding abuses and corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts.
On May 22, 2013, ethics lawyers stated in closed proceedings regarding reinstatement that they would oppose his applications so long as his complaints and public criticisms of our courts continue. Only weeks later, they were forced to resign after a state inspector general discovered that they had been falsifying time sheets. No public charges, criminal or ethical were brought against these standard-bearers of attorney ethics, and they continue practicing law (Torncello, Devane and Zayas).
Now comes a feature story in today’s New York Times regarding Stanley Cohen, an attorney known for his representation of police murderers, terrorists, members of Hamas, Al Qaeda and even a convicted son-in-law of Osama bin Laden. Recently released from prison for tax evasion, he has now been returned to the practice of law by the same court system which has kept Dr. Koziol in a state of turmoil and limbo. Attorney Cohen quickly returned to representing shady figures.
A full page article with Cohen’s half page photo outside his Catskill Mountain home is found on page A18 of the October 22, 2018 edition of the New York Times. The article was written by Corey Kilgannon, and it presents a quintessential paradox between good and evil in the courts of New York. A child support debt was orchestrated through a destruction of Koziol’s livelihood with the same earnings level as practicing attorney to set monthly support payments. One family judge (Daniel King) fabricated a college degree for alternate employment to keep those payments beyond a manageable level.
And only weeks ago, a fraud was committed when the state support agency failed to credit Leon with a $45,500 support payment in 2015. An acting family judge, Gerald Popeo, was publicly censured for misconduct by the state Judicial Conduct Commission, and he later issued a jail order while denying a timely court transcript which shows that fraud. It resulted in a “shoot on sight” threat by a traffic cop who targeted a vehicle driven by a Koziol assistant.
Yet no one in government seems concerned about any of this, leaving the victim to fend for his life as best as he can. The moral of this story is that First Amendment does not apply to our third branch of government, the same one that seized the power to interpret our supreme laws under the Constitution.
Dr. Koziol is now petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court for recourse and to prevent ratification of this human holocaust through high court inaction. Share this message and Dr. Koziol’s latest corruption report with your Congress representatives, media and fellow court victims. If you can help, call Leon personally at (315) 796-4000. Because when they can do this to a model parent, lawyer and citizen, they can easily do it to you or your loved ones.
