Operation Doubtfire: A Mission to Reverse 25 Years of Growing Abuses Against Good Fathers

Join us in a mission dedicated to Robin Williams and Mrs. Doubtfire

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

A lot of unexplained events have occurred during my 10 year crusade to expose court corruption, funding abuses and father discrimination in our nation’s divorce and family courts. You might say I’m lucky to be alive today when considering the recent targeting by a local sheriff and the suspicious death of one of my predecessors, Nancy Schaefer, when I first got started.

And so it shocked me again when I picked today to publish my next plan of action. For awhile now I wanted to bring focus to the blockbuster movie, Mrs. Doubtfire, to underscore the lack of progress made in parental equality since the day it was released.  I even used it in court filings, and seriously, I did not know that today marked the 25th year anniversary of the movie’s release. Many cast and crew celebrated with a reunion.

The prejudice against dads in these courts has actually gotten much worse since that movie was produced. The late Robin Williams played the role of Mrs. Doubtfire, a dad desperate to see his children after his wife (Sally Fields) lied about his character and conduct in court, humiliating and alienating him to the point of severe desperation. So he dressed up as an elderly nanny and was hired to babysit his children with great success.

Doubtfire backfired when Robin Williams was exposed for his ruse and banned altogether from his children’s lives. Today, Mrs. Doubfire would have been jailed for violating a custody order, (s)he would have been subjected to costly forensic evaluations and committed to recurring terms in a debtor prison despite being unable to make child support payments. (S)he would have been convicted of a felony for moving to another state in search of better employment prospects.

Robin Williams took his life in 2014 at age 63 after a long battle with depression. It is an outcome which is increasingly common among the many good dads persecuted in these courts. 22 veterans are committing suicide each day, many as a result of parental alienation and child support debts, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org. Over the past 25 years, Census Bureau reports continue to show that nearly 85% of all parents paying child support are men, nearly all committed to jail terms for custody and support violations are men, and roughly 20% of all local arrest warrants are family court dads.

These ominous facts are aggravated further by a man-hating mission promoted by feminist-socialists bent on destroying parent-child relationships in favor of a state take-over of childrearing. It is following the same trend that education became institutionalized. Start with the dads, pit them against the moms, then take their children after blaming both parents for their custody “wars” and “battles.” This “War on Women,” the “Violence Against Women Act,” the “Future is Female,” and even the very phrase “Women’s Rights” prove that we are no longer a nation promoting equal rights but one engaged in a race for superior rights.

The latter statement was a featured argument in my recent case docketed by the Supreme Court seeking parental equality and legal protection for judicial whistleblowers (Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, Case No. 18-278). But the case was denied without so much as an opinion or dissent, proving once again that our high court is suppressing judicial misconduct, meaningful reforms and parental equality in favor of lawyer enrichment, federal funding abuses and political posturing.

I was appalled at the abuses inflicted upon Judge Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate confirmation hearings, but when he was narrowly approved, the newest member of our Supreme Court shocked me when announcing that an all female staff would be hired as his law clerks. This hiring move violates everything that the principle of equal rights stands for. Does an aspiring Harvard law graduate now have to masquerade as a woman to get Brett’s attention? Where does the victim go to file a sex discrimination claim?

Ironically, there was to outcry regarding this sexist hiring decision by the same feminists who were busy attacking Brett during his confirmation process. Apparently sexist practices are fine so long as women are the beneficiaries. Such a double-standard and double-cross by Brett Kavanaugh only adds now to the grounds for impeachment which had been promised by his adversaries. Today the men who were sympathetic to Brett’s ordeal have good cause to join the mission to remove him. A Democrat House of Representatives might be widely supported with Articles of Impeachment.

But apart from the Kavanaugh debacle, a counter-mission must be undertaken to defend against this man-hating onslaught which has reached a level of insanity. Men everywhere stood by as if helpless to the disgusting tirades and outright killer threats of so-called “women professionals” during that Supreme Court confirmation process. On September 18, 2018, Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono had a message for all men who dared to defend against false allegations in this “Me-Too” movement. She told the men of America to “Just shut up!”

Georgetown Professor Carol Christine Fair went much further. Emboldened by the sexist attack from a U.S. Senator, she tweeted, “Look at (this) chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to the swine? Yes.” Brett Kavanaugh was never even accused of a single rape by anyone despite the feeding frenzy of fame seeking liars. This freak of nature, Carol Fair?, should have been promptly committed to a mental institution or imprisoned for inciting the most serious kind of “Violence Against Men.” Instead she was rewarded with a sabbatical in Europe.

Imagine if a white male professor made such statements. More ominous, what exactly is being taught and promoted at these liberal elite universities? As a white male, I was and remain anything but entitled. My dad spent five years in a Nazi camp, I was raised in a violent, poor neighborhood, and I worked my way up the hard way, working odd summer jobs to pay my state college tuition. Even now I am being persecuted much like Susan B. Anthony was in her day. In my day, I successfully prosecuted sexual harassment cases, saved the careers of discriminated women and even represented a former president of the National Organization for Women.

The bottom line here is that this man-hating mission is only going to grow unless we victims respond. To that end, I am proposing a protest rally at the same Supreme Court attacked by these feminists-socialists during the Kavanaugh hearings. It can occur during the week before Fathers Day, 2019. Unfortunately, by my experience organizing prior rallies, the victims are more interested in ball games with the kind of apathy which these feminists depend on to advance their agenda. Beginning today, I will be contacting veterans groups, police benevolent associations, biker groups, NAACP, and even bowling groups if necessary to make this happen. But I cannot succeed without your support.

Please make this message viral, make a donation to the cause on this site, and contact me in any manner possible to make this happen. Every man in America is a potential victim of this growing insanity. And every woman has a dad, brother, son or friend who can be victimized as well. It’s time to take back our families, our nation, and our minds !

Warrant Removed, U.S. Supreme Court to Review Horrific Events Surrounding a Near Fatal, Support Enforcement Fiasco

 

img_0298
Thousands of “men’ died so that the human right of equal treatment under the law could have true meaning. They did not sacrifice for women and minorities only. They also sacrificed for men increasingly prejudiced and persecuted in family courts based on their birth status. Welcome to what may be the first men’s rights case docketed before the United States Supreme Court, entitled Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. Docket No. 18-278

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Only by the grace of God am I still alive sending you this message. I remain in New York City where I am advocating for a federal investigation of the Oneida County Sheriff, Family Court and certain judges who engaged in an unprecedented attack upon my free speech. So horrific were their abuses of public office that my life and family were placed needlessly in danger. It is reminiscent of Deputy Kurt Wyman who was also placed needlessly in harm’s way under the administration of Sheriff Robert Maciol.

The public admission of a “leaked” APB to the media by Sheriff Maciol, his deputy who abused security duties to provide free service of process to a private litigant (Kelly Hawse-Koziol) and a Utica, New York city judge who abused judicial office to avenge a public censure by the Judicial Conduct Commission are only the tip of the iceberg. New York’s corrupt Fifth Judicial District is at the center of it all, those attorneys whose livelihoods are being threatened by my reform efforts. There are also those who made defamatory public statements that will face a civil lawsuit when my work here is done.

Recently, New York 22nd District Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, leaked out her own memo depicting opponent, Anthony Brindisi, as some kind of mobster whose family would react with violent acts upon her staff. She claimed this would occur because his political career was coming to an end (evidently by her presumed victory in November). She gave only vague events and possibilities of retaliation, thereby proving that this was all a scam to dredge up dirt by association and ethnic heritage.

When called to task by the New York Post, Claudia back-pedaled, claiming she did not mean to refer to the younger Brindisi (law partner and Assemblyman), and not even his father who was charged at one time with seven felonies stemming from a drug ring operated from his law office. She was referring to unnamed “thugs” somehow connected to the Brindisi family. The elder Brindisi was a reputed mob lawyer. A young attorney in the same law office was found tied to a chair, gagged and dead in the basement.

Welcome to my home town where I served as city councilman and corporation counsel. Known once as “Sin City,” the abuse inflicted on me for exposing corruption here should not surprise you. When news was “leaked” to the media behind this major man-hunt against me for “child support” (a conscientious attorney never even accused of a crime), there was no concern expressed by Claudia for me as one of her constituents. She knew my ordeal when interviewing me in my home in 2010 as a secondary media representative prior to winning her first election. She knew the stand I was making for abused fathers and non-custodial mothers. But evidently it was only her own interests that were important.

I filed complaints with Sheriff Maciol, the Judicial Conduct Commission and Chief Judge Janet DiFiore in January of this year outlining the crimes committed against me and even predicting what was to come. Not a single one gave me the courtesy of a reply, leading to the logical conclusion that crimes by judges, lawyers and court staff were perfectly acceptable. Under these circumstances, and our Constitution, the citizenry is entitled to fend for itself. That is how our nation began.

Now it is all before the United States Supreme Court. Today, I received notice that my motion for stay filed during the time of Judge Gerald Popeo’s warrant was formally docketed (dated September 4, 2018). It is currently being considered by Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg. It has interesting parallels to the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings with the twist that men are now becoming a discriminated class in America. Indeed the first issue presented asks our high court to take up that very question. You can view the entire petition on-line on the Supreme Court website, search docket, Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. Case No. 18-278.

In closing, I want to thank those around the country who sought to give me support and assistance, most importantly those who combined to make the support payment needed to lift the Popeo warrant. We need to share this post and wage a campaign for accountability never seen before. Corruption is growing at all levels of government while the rest of us who follow the rules are abused as victims. I got no calls from my daughters. The alienation for money waged by their “custodial parent” Kelly Hawse-Koziol would make Satan herself cringe.

Traffic cop: Kill (Leon Koziol) on Sight? Breaking news of a loving dad, civil rights attorney, and model citizen who dared to criticize our third branch of government.

I know this post may shock some of you, blow your mind, whatever, but as a parent and American citizen, you need to read it, share it, make it viral, and overcome the censorship which surrounds it. I’ve not communicated with my followers for some time because I did not want to alarm family members or friends about events accumulating recently which have now placed my life in serious danger.

You might say, I am a “dead man walking,” and I will be contacting the United States Supreme Court tomorrow morning to discern, perhaps for the first time ever, whether there is any court procedure to protect a citizen from a “kill on sight” order issued verbally by a traffic cop against me for a child support debt. As fate would have it, I have a petition pending there along with a motion for a stay of the proceedings which caused all this (before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

Some of you may recall former Georgia state senator Nancy Schaefer. She was supposed to be a featured speaker at a parenting rights convention in our nation’s capital along with me in 2010. She never made it because she was found mysteriously dead along with her husband of 52 years in her home. She had been exposing family court corruption no differently than I have been. It is literally a trillion dollar industry that is destroying families and our moral fiber as a nation.

Today, my hours may also be numbered. For the time being, I have found a temporary place of safety. Hence, I can now explain what is truly going on in connection with a story leaked to WIBX radio in upstate, New York last week. Concerned parents have called from around the country offering support. Some have asked me to surrender to a so-called “child support” warrant issued by a corrupt, Utica, New York criminal judge assigned as an “acting family judge” to my custody and support cases. His name is Gerald Popeo.

Don’t bother trying to figure out any of that jurisdiction or assignment stuff. Even New York’s bar association condemned a justice system in our state which features 11 trial courts in contrast to our largest state of California which has only one. But hey, such complications are highly lucrative for lawyers even if it means murders and suicides among the people they incite. And that leads me to this horrific event exposed for the first time.

On Thursday night, August 30, 2018, at approximately 9 pm, at the toll booths of interstate 87 and 90 near Albany, New York, a former client and friend was headed northbound toward Lake George, New York in my black truck (H-3 Hummer). He was quickly pulled over by a patrol cop. There was no real traffic issue, he was likely tagged by a registration, computer-generated, sticker on the windshield, having been accused of erratic driving, failing to signal, etc. Talk about citizen monitoring!

Anyone coming through that maze of intersections knows how ridiculous such charges would be, and he was also cited with speeding, 66 in a 55, coming out of those toll booths. For at least two hours, this man was berated and threatened with multiple felony charges because the registration came back to my name. He was required to disclose my location based on some sort of “all points bulletin” depicting me as a dangerous suspect (of nothing at all because it related to a civil child support debt).

These Albany guys were relying on an Oneida County deputy sheriff-initiated phone conversation. What they were not told is that my statements (long present in my court papers) were premised on a logical belief that I was being set up for a violent arrest (more on that shortly.) I would never resist a “lawful arrest,” but that’s not how it was portrayed in an “All Points Bulletin” of sorts that was, as stated, sadistically  “leaked” to the media.

At one point, it was learned that the driver had a child support warrant of his own, but the applicable law enforcement agency (Lewis County bordering Oneida County) refused an offer to pick him up. This was likely based on a realization that the situation was getting way out of control. I mean, after all, weren’t there real criminals somewhere to be focused on with our tax dollars?

Judge Daniel King in that (Lewis) county case was the same person who caused this driver (and me) to lose our children, in my case to facilitate substitution by an unfit, childless millionaire who went so far as to nearly run me over with his black cadillac last summer (witnessed by a nearby restaurant manager). You may have heard the stories of at least two New York Supreme Court judges who were sent to prison on child custody bribery charges (Albany’s Thomas Spargo and Brooklyn’s Gerald Garson).

The driver was finally released despite all the felony threats. When he finally reached me, the story he told would make any free world citizen cringe. How ironic it was that I was proudly wearing an NYPD shirt when he described his ordeal. It had seven patrol cars and one in cop in particular who threatened him with all sorts of harmful consequences unless he led them to me. The others apparently did not correct him when he stated that they would “kill on sight” regarding that APB put out against me for this money debt. He also accused the driver of trying to protect a “cop killer.”

Remember Walter Scott? Probably not. That’s because, often times, when the “black lives matter” movement comes around in the media, they conveniently leave him out of the serial carnage. Yet he is the worst case from all the other killings. Walter was running, unarmed, from a child support warrant at a traffic stop in South Carolina. He was murdered by that traffic cop and shot dead in the back five times. If not for a cell phone video by an unseen by-stander, no one would have believed the story.

While everyone at Walter Scott’s funeral (I was there) tried to make it a race issue, the funeral pastor saw it differently. He blamed it on these draconian child support enforcement practices. No one cared, no reform resulted from this dad’s needless murder. The family recovered $6 million in a wrongful death lawsuit but how did that help his little ones spend the rest of their lives without their loving father? Is murder by a traffic cop the newest form of “child support?”

Our government learned nothing from the Walter Scott murder, Thomas Ball’s self-immolation or the family murder suicide in Astoria only a few weeks ago. To prove that, I am today, literally a “dead man walking.” I may be dead only minutes from now because I will not surrender to the corruption of our courts any more than Martin Luther King did with his “Letter from Birmingham jail” or Susan B. Anthony did who refused to pay her fine for the crime of voting in a congressional election.

What’s the chance that the courtroom named after Susan B. Anthony in Rochester, New York is the same one where my law license was suspended in 2010 for refusing to pay “sexist” child support. Even now, well into the 21st century, our Census Bureau continues to report that nearly 85% of all parents paying child support are men, 90% of (antiquated) “custody awards” go to women, and nearly 100% of all parents sent to a debtor prison for so-called “child support” are men.

I want to thank all of you who have offered me assistance. We have the dubious distinction of having the most imprisoned population in the “free world,” all for the sake of money (i.e. kickbacks to judges in Pennsylvania for prison construction contracts that landed juveniles falsely in prison). I have retained a video regarding the foregoing incident and sent it to three people for my personal protection. Every minute now may be my last, but it was a sacrifice which needed to be made.

For “the record,” the APB thing originated from a telephone conversation initiated by a security deputy at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica, New York. Out of concern only for himself due to his unlawful conduct, he asked me to surrender myself to Gerald Popeo. I don’t even know this deputy’s name but his manner of treating me like a common criminal incited my emotions. I’m wondering if he ever offered such privileges to other dads who simply failed to appear for a family court hearing on a money debt.

Anyway, this is the same guy who was asked by a family court clerk there to serve me with the support violation summons which is now leading to my imminent death. He did so to benefit Kelly Hawse-Koziol, the so-called “custodial parent” of my two daughters. This deputy sheriff abused his court security duties by interrupting a separate custody proceeding to serve that summons. Meanwhile I was required to pay for such services through the same deputy sheriff’s civil division.

What’s even worse, the support magistrate, Natalie Carraway, who recommended the Popeo-approved six-month child support incarceration, failed to rectify a $45,500 tax-free child support payment I made in 2015, making the whole support debt a fraud upon the court by the robotic state “Child Support Collection Center.” Gerry Popeo allowed an adjournment to obtain the relevant hearing transcript showing that fraud, but curiously, two stenographers that I hired for that purpose, changed their minds for its production.

In short, the entire family court was placed on the side of my adversary with no concern from any judge, supervising or presiding. Did this deputy not commit a crime by abusing his assigned duties and stealing from taxpayers what they were entitled to at the Civil Division of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department? I made all the appropriate complaints to New York’s Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, the court administration and Sheriff Robert Maciol, even following up with phone calls where my complaints were acknowledged (in January of this year). As of this publication, I have yet to receive the courtesy of a reply.

As for the judge who issued my “death” warrant, Gerald Popeo was censured by the New York Judicial Conduct Commission on February 12, 2015 for physical threats made to litigants from the bench and unlawful (civil contempt) jail sentences. A Commission judge concluded after hearing the evidence that Gerald Popeo had made jokes while on duty to an African-American attorney that “downstate blacks refer to upstate blacks as country niggers.” He should have been arrested by court security for his threats and thrown off the bench for his racist remarks. Instead he was given a mere censure which he blamed, in part, on me as a “witch hunt.”

Gerald Popeo was recently assigned to my support case as revenge and to complete the persecution for my public criticisms of these courts.  Coupled with my twelve year divorce ordeal, it is all sufficient for me to conclude that I have been targeted for physical injury in an unlawful arrest. By law, I have the human right to defend myself as Rodney King could have when he was nearly beat to death on a roadside in California. Robert Maciol, his deputy, Gerald Popeo, Daniel King and others must be held accountable for my death should that occur.

As for attention-deprived, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, she is obviously enjoying all this. She could end it all by simply withdrawing her demands for money but she seems to literally want “blood.” This has nothing to do with any child’s “best interests.” I cannot pay gender biased “child support” after all my means for obtaining income were taken by the state’s judiciary and child support machine. The people need a federal investigation into my case. All I ask now is for my daughters to contact me so that I can say good-bye. You girls were always my whole life while it existed.

  

Happy Easter Walter Scott

Why is the horrific murder of a loving dad for child support being ignored by the media and government?

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

I was born on Easter Sunday, just before dawn, and although I never bothered to  verify it until decades later, the date and time proved correct on my certificate. I was also born to be a dad, and that made my daughters possible. Although I wished them a Happy Easter today, as usual, I got no reply.

It’s been like that for years. Never found to be unfit as a parent, subject of any agency report or charged with any crime, the years spent with my girls as a “noncustodial parent” (due to my male birth status) were filled with events to make any child envious. Trips to Manhattan, the ocean, our nation’s capital, lakes, skiing, climbing and school events comprised only some of our experiences without incident. I built them a playground on my two acre property that rivaled our finest local parks.

Then their “custodial parent” decided that they should have a new father, someone she admitted to be pursuing strictly for his wealth. And the many custody judges assigned to my case, including removed pedophile family judge, Bryan Hedges, made no mention of this illicit agenda for over ten years. Instead, one who frequented a bar with his children, Daniel King of Lewis County Family Court, placed bizarre conditions upon me such as “prohibited alcohol related gestures” (a wedding toast) to make continued father-daughter relationships impossible.

They could find no reliable proof of unfit parenting so they simply made things up and any attack on my reputation to discredit the reform message and court corruption I was publicizing across the country. So intense was the legalized kidnapping that the wealthy substitute dad actually tried to run me over with his Cadillac last summer. It was witnessed by a bar manager who happened to be near the sidewalk I was crossing the street toward.

We live in a world today dominated by money. It can buy judges, lawyers and politicians. Anyone so naïve to believe otherwise should look up the many bribery and extortion cases coming out of divorce and family courts, judges like ex-New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler, Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo sent to federal prisons. And they are only a few of the ones who actually got caught.

But you can learn all about that in my recent book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. Today’s holiday post is focused on a far greater crime, this epidemic sweeping across America as part of a New World Order to take control of our children. It is being accomplished through an antiquated “custody” system mandated by federal Title IV-D funding laws.

Like the drug industry, this epidemic has turned our courts into a trillion dollar industry while transforming cooperative parenting into lucrative war zones. It has also produced fatherless children like the one in Parkland, Florida, who decided one day to murder fellow classmates just for kicks. My own ex-wife lacks all moral compass when lying repeatedly under oath to the glee of corrupt judges anxious to exploit her stupidity to avenge my public criticisms.

And that brings us to Walter Scott. You may remember him as the unarmed father shot dead five times in the back by a psycho cop near Charleston, South Carolina while fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop. Our government is now killing for money and resurrecting debtor prisons using our children as justification. Adolph Hitler explained this agenda in his famous book, Mein Kampf, i.e. if you can get the people believing that you’re acting in their children’s “best interests,” they will “happily” give up their rights.

Walter Scott is solid proof of this agenda for all the unbelievers. I spoke out at his 2015 funeral before national media to emphasize that this was not so much a race crime as it was a gender crime, one targeting dads and the destruction of fatherhood in America. After discussing it with a New York Times reporter and appearing on the Charleston evening news, I got some mainstream media traction, especially when the funeral pastor preached the same conclusion I did.

Walter Scott’s murder, captured on an i-phone by an unseen by-stander, was, by far, the most horrific one in the Black Lives Matter crusade. Unlike the others, Scott was unarmed, he raised nothing resembling a weapon, and he was running from a money debt not any criminal act. Worse yet, Title IV-D state court revenue was among the objectives of the arrest warrant resulting in his murder.

Despite all this, time and again, when the national media recites these murders, Walter Scott is notoriously absent. No doubted calculated to protect the money trail, this practice resembles incidents like the Selma, Alabama anniversary march with George Bush cropped out of a New York Times photo or the television reporter, who never was, claiming to be flying in a helicopter over Iraq during a news feature. Walter Scott is purposely omitted because it raises the taboo subject of father discrimination and draconian law enforcement practices that threaten the New World Order.

In a March 31, 2018 front page story in the New York Daily News, a series of black victims are named in civil rights history ending with Trayvon Martin. Walter Scott is not among them. Again, today, in an Associated Press story by Corey Williams carried nationally, a summary of recent black murders is given. Still no mention of Walter Scott. Lawyer Benjamin Crump is featured in that story because he has been assisting victim families to get monetary compensation. The largest of these to date is the family of Walter Scott which recovered $6 million. So why was it “cropped out?”

The war on dads is very real. I may be among the most profound examples of this given the inhumane retributions I sustained as a result of my parent equality crusade across the country. As a prominent civil rights attorney who obtained jury verdicts and six figure recoveries for civil rights victims, including white landowners and sexually harassed women, these witch hunters can discredit my public message using the mother of my children as their stooge, but they can never take away my accomplishments.

As I look back on these past ten years of persecution, I often come to the conclusion that my sacrifices have been in vain. No one donates, few show up at our rallies, and keyboard warriors prefer the comfort of their private homes. Accordingly the epidemic grows, and the day is destined to arrive when some victim will explode to take horrific action at some courthouse or law office. Thomas Ball nearly did exactly that before burning himself alive in front of a family court and leaving behind a cryptic manifesto.

While I have done all I could to prevent such a holocaust, I have moved no mountains. After a record 40 trial judges were disqualified from my originally uncontested divorce, a racist judge who makes violent threats from the bench has now been assigned to finish me off as an “Acting Family Judge.” My website has been highly censored and I can recite little progress. If any, it has occurred among individual cases only. Occasionally I get inspiration from a friend, family member, stranger, caller or even a cleric, one such as Reverend James Forbes, the “Martin Luther King” of Manhattan.

However, on this Easter Sunday, a Christian celebration of resurrected life, I got some unexpected inspiration from a pastor at St. Paul’s Church in Whitesboro, New York. I cannot deliver it as eloquently as he did, but I would like to share it with you, especially all those who have stayed in the fight against the odds for so many years. You know who you are. The sermon goes something like this:

One day God directed a man to move a large stone by pressing against it each day with all his might. After months of doing so, the man grew weary. He had not moved that giant rock a single inch and began to accept the reality that he never could. Satan therefore intervened and suggested that he give it a day’s rest especially as it happened to be a Sunday. Surely a good God would accept such rest on his day and recognize all the daily commitment. But the man turned Satan down and kept on pushing against that rock however foolish he may have looked. Finally, the man asked God why he had committed him to such an impossible task. It was then that God replied that this was a test of his faith, and because he had honored the directive, God would now move that rock for him.  

 

What can you do if judges violate the law and threaten to assault litigants in court? Meet Judge Gerald “Neanderthal” Popeo!

“I would love to come off this bench and wipe that smirk off your face!”  City Judge Gerald Popeo to a litigant in his court room, now assigned to Family Court after the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct censured him for a battery of ethical violations but never removed him.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Should you decide to expose corruption in our judicial system, be wary of the immunity which it claims over your First Amendment rights. This immunity and self-regulation power has become so abused that Michigan Family Judge Wade McCree was able to commit adultery in chambers, get a litigant mother pregnant while he placed her adversary on a child support monitor and suffer no monetary liability to his victims.

Now we have another “Acting” Family Judge in upstate New York who threatened a litigant from the bench, was found by an ethics judge to have used racial slurs (“country niggers”) and sent people to jail on serial contempt rulings because they grinned or complained of injustices. Meet Judge Gerald “Neanderthal” Popeo of Utica, New York, a regular standard-bearer for anti-violence groups. Get the details by clicking here.

Because the persecution for my judicial misconduct complaints has become so extreme, I recently filed an extraordinary lawsuit against such judges in New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division. There is little expectation of proper accountability, however, because our courts are self-protecting of their revenues, fees and reputation. They would rather excuse, ignore or rationalize racial slurs and judge revenge than accept the public consequences for their actions like they require of the rest of us.

So what can we do? My lawsuit may shed some light. Here is an excerpt of my arguments before that court which may shock you, but it is a sound position based on my 23 unblemished years as a civil rights attorney and successful cases which recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for my clients. That was before the judicial retaliation began for my whistleblowing activity. These arguments are made to oppose dismissal motions filed by New York’s Chief Judge Janet DiFiore and various inferior judge (respondents) engaged in clear misconduct:

Koziol v DiFiore, et. al.

2)  This is a hybrid declaratory judgment and extraordinary relief action brought pursuant to CPLR Articles 30, 63 and 78. It is otherwise authorized by New York’s high court under a “Rule of Necessity” laid out in another hybrid action, Maron v Silver, 14 NY3d 230 (2010). If the Chief Judge and respondents are to be plainly understood by their motions, a hybrid lawsuit filed by predecessor chief judges challenging legislative dysfunction for pay raise purposes is proper, but if those whom they serve seek to do the same for purposes of protecting their children, livelihood and liberties from judicial dysfunction, they are out of line, subject to summary dismissals or even filing prohibitions of the sort demanded here.

3)  New York’s judiciary clearly had no authority to direct the amounts or timeliness of pay raises absent diminution. It is a subject textually committed to other branches of government under the people’s constitution. Yet the Maron case was filed anyway, by judges no less, and it is still “the law” in this state. It can only be construed as an unconstitutional scheme to politically influence the other branches through an abuse of our courts. If private litigants endeavored to do the very same thing, they would be subjected additionally to fines, sanctions and even contempt.

4)  Both motions have utterly ignored the Maron v Silver case, indeed it is not even mentioned in the joint Memorandum of Law, Table of Authorities. This is because the outcome is already anticipated. There is no neutral and detached arbiter, hence vitiating any good faith effort or purpose for preparing an opposition Memorandum. Ignoring stated precedent is not only unethical but also the tactic employed by most, if not all jurists reviewing this case to date.

5)  In my recent book, Satan’s Docket, I have described this tactic as “Orchestrated Law.”It was practiced in the serial rulings which were, in fact, cited in the moving papers, further confirmation of the systemic bias carefully and convincingly laid out in the petition.  Both motions have also ignored the precedent seeking nature of this case premised on escalating new facts caused by each biased ruling designed to suppress speech directed at judicial misconduct.

6)  The motions continue with their deceptive agenda by totally ignoring salient facts of the petition without facts of their own interposed by any person having personal knowledge. That renders the petition presumptively true for purposes of any summary ruling. Even on technical grounds identified for dismissal, the untwisted facts cannot be silenced on such an extraordinary case. But as practiced here for at least ten years, decision makers have cherry picked only those facts and precedent (if at all) which supports a predetermined outcome and a “law” concocted contrary to our legislated ones.

7)  If you don’t mention material facts or egregious misconduct clearly bearing on that outcome, it simply didn’t happen. This results in a monumental fraud upon the public by that branch of government charged with highest duty of protecting our constitutional rights and “justice for all.” If our courts are bold enough to cover up their own corruption, there is no “law.” It is all the justification needed for victims to take matters into their own hands. We can rightfully conclude that we are living in an increasingly lawless society. Proof is everywhere, from the mass murders by a fatherless teen in Florida to the terrorist threats in daily news reports.

8)  A simple test which bears this out is the perjuries of judge-appointed child lawyer William Koslosky and the state’s “custodial parent,” respondent Kelly Hawse-Koziol. The record clearly shows that they both conspired to conceal the true residence of my daughters, going so far as to serve a Notice to Admit in November, 2015 attaching a purported electronic notice of child relocation with the address “gmai.com.” It constituted an impossible transmission without the “l” character demonstrable from the face of that doctored confirmation notice. The 35th assigned judge, Daniel King, bent on revenge for my testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, simply vacated the notice without any consequence to either co-conspirator. He did so while a gag order was in place in the last decision prior to his removal.

9)  The logical question which then arises is why a lawyer would engage in such clear misconduct. The answer lies in the continuing refusal of our appellate division justices to hold William Koslosky accountable. That failure in duty occurred as recently as February 26, 2018 when Judge Joanne Winslow submitted notice to me declining to sign a show cause order on this case. I am making that application, already served on the parties, a part of this cross-motion. It sought, inter alia, a referral of William Koslosky minimally for disciplinary action stemming from his July 31, 2011 and August 2, 2011 affirmations in support of appeal dismissals.

10)  Those affirmations were re-filed one month later in the Third Department after this court’s transfer order. In that particular scheme, Koslosky stated under oath that I sought to reinstate my law license in a family court cross-motion dated March 3, 2011 before later disqualified Judge Pirro-Bailey. It was obviously orchestrated to discredit me as a parent, lawyer and critic insofar as every sane lawyer knows that a law license cannot be reinstated in that court.

11)  As the petition and show cause application explained, lawyer Koslosky went so far as to assert factually that I was seeking to “revoke” the authority of this court to decide licensing matters. There was no proof of any of this, but the sworn affirmations remain in the records of both upstate licensing/appeals courts. The effectively ratified perjuries have not been retracted or even acknowledged by any judge to date. My answering affidavit and the ones repeatedly filed here contained the Koslosky sworn statements and entire cross-motion showing no such events.

12)  This court cannot deflect by asserting timely recourse to the Fifth District Grievance Committee. Apart from its own duties under the Judicial Code, its appointed Committee has yet to even acknowledge my 2011 grievance against Koslosky and custodial counsel, perhaps due to the simultaneous disqualification and transfer of my disciplinary matters to the Third Department and the witch hunt lawyers there focused on my public criticisms.

13)  These standard-bearers of lawyer ethics were allowed to quietly resign without public prosecution of any kind after an Inspector General discovered their falsified time sheets. As the petition explains with sufficient detail and examples, I was not accorded similar favor after more than eight years of license suspension, one year longer than a disbarment period.

14)  The Third Department misconduct was not much different prior to transfer when Fifth District Attorney Mary Gasparini submitted a false written statement to her Committee that I had not sought an adjournment to better prepare for a first time prosecution of ten grievances in 2008. This lie, in turn, led to “discrepancy” claims elevating a first time admonition to formal charges and my first one year disciplinary suspension by the Third Department (still extant).

15)  The Gasparini lie was fully proven in a March, 2009 motion for discovery and other relief during that prosecution. This court denied my motion in a cursory, confidential decision two months later without any mention of Gasparini’s misconduct. Ten grievances (six later dismissed on their face) comprised this first time prosecution after two decades of unblemished practice. It originated on January 9, 2008, the same day as arguments before Judge John Centra of this court which contained extensive proof of ethical misconduct by Keith Eisenhut, opposing divorce counsel unknown at the time to be a member of that same Fifth District Committee.

16)  These grievances were stale for many years as was the one currently prosecuted by the Third Department involving events of 2008. Hence it cannot be said that timely recourse against Koslosky is somehow stale or waived. To the contrary, the intentional disregard and uneven treatment of lawyer misconduct have only left wide open the door for a series of perjuries that have destroyed all aspects of my former model existence over a half century period, including the gmai.com concoction years later. In the face of all that has been presented and accumulated to date, how can anyone conclude that a rational justice system has been made available to me? The notion that an anti-filing order should now be issued is an even greater farce inasmuch as such an order has been effectively in place since January 9, 2008.

17)  But that corruption pales in comparison to the one which now confronts everyone involved. If lawyers appointed and licensed by this court can freely concoct facts and lie under oath, anything can be contrived against me as long as my reform and whistleblower activity persist. That entitles me to resort to every manner of personal protection at my disposal.

Catch me if you can: A Shocking Story of Court Corruption for the Ages!

place-your-corrupt-judge-or-lawyer-photo-along

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Now this is a story of for the ages, court corruption on steroids. For those of you who have followed my ordeal as a judicial whistleblower, you know how my daughters, livelihood and law licenses were taken from me due to my conscientious stand against my profession after 23 years of unblemished practice of law. I have never even been charged with a crime or unfit behavior as a parent.  

You also know how the ethics lawyers in the witch hunt against me were allowed to resign quietly by their appeals court employers for falsifying time sheets without any criminal or ethics charges. And you know about the unprecedented 30 plus trial level judges assigned to my originally uncontested divorce of 2006 who were disqualified for various reasons.

They included my custody judge, Bryan Hedges, removed from my case just prior to his admission of sexual abuse on his handicapped, five year old niece. And just when you thought it was safe to come out, along comes today’s feature on Leon Koziol. com, a parental blog site dedicated to exposing corruption in America’s divorce industry.

My recently released book, Satan’s Docket, continues to entertain readers while educating them to the realities of divorce and family courts from a model father and highly successful civil rights attorney. What a great Christmas present as so many have discovered through recent orders at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

Today’s shocking story could never have occurred unless I so angered certain judges with my public disclosures that they went ballistic with their retributions and abuses of judicial office. You need to share this with media, organizations and fellow victims not so much for my sake, no one is seriously supporting me anyway, that’s why the corruption continues to your own detriment  as parents and taxpayers. Do it for the sake of innocent children and future generations of Americans.

As yesterday’s post reported, I filed a parental equality case in New York Supreme Court. One day after its filing, on December 15, 2017, I was summoned to appear before the 40th trial level jurist assigned to my originally uncontested divorce.

That’s right, forty (40). I’m not making this up any more than my pedophile custody judge who was sued along with administrative judge, James Tormey, for directing “political espionage” of his family court clerk (Morin v Tormey).

I’m also not making this up any more than Judge Hedges’ replacement, Daniel “Kangaroo” King, who allowed a fabricated PhD and Master degree into the record for purposes of imputing false income. He did so for retaliatory support incarceration in 2013 after I reported his misconduct at public hearings before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption.

Now the name of our latest villain is Natalie Carraway, and I have no idea where this support magistrate came from any more than the security deputy did who said she had come to our local family court just for me. How truly “honored” was I.

Anyway, four days earlier on December 11th, I had appeared before Kangaroo King’s replacement judge, James “dweeby” Eby of Oswego, New York Family Court. It was a first appearance on my show cause petition for holiday parenting time filed at least one week before Thanksgiving.

Of course, the dweeb had no intention of “granting” me father access to my daughters after nearly 1,500 days removed from their lives. He was likely assigned by Syracuse Judge James “Bond” Tormey to harass me with every possible abuse of judicial office. The Jimbo twins may have become determined to discredit my professional reputation and public message of reform at any cost.

After telling me to pound salt, the dweeb was interrupted during proceedings by that security deputy. He came in uninvited and asked this Oswego judge if he could serve me with a support violation petition then set for a first appearance four days later before Natalie “clueless” Carraway. The dweeb replied that it was not Oswego “policy” to allow service of papers in a case not assigned to the presiding judge, but because it “may be” policy in Oneida County, he ruled that I was “served.”

We were then excused from his deliberations, but I refused to accept service on grounds that I was intending to challenge “service by mail” in the separate support case, a mode of service requested by the “custodial sociopath” Kelly Hawse-Koziol on the face of her sworn petition. Because such petitions feature warnings of arrest and incarceration of up to seven years, that’s right seven years, on their face, I was not expecting “corrective” service by a court deputy assigned to security.

More importantly, I wanted to obtain a ruling to invalidate this unchecked practice of mail service given its clear violation of due process and devastation to victims such as Walter Scott. You might recall him as the unarmed dad in South Carolina shot dead in the back five times while fleeing a child support warrant. His family recovered $6 million for civil rights violations (the latest form of “child support”).

But how could Judge “dweeby” Eby know any of this? He was not assigned to the support case. And now he unwittingly became a witness to the service issue and therefore subject to (yet another) disqualification (always blamed on me, the innocent victim). Of course my adversaries, known and unknown, will endeavor to “sweep this all under the carpet” using every lame excuse possible.

But they would have to get around the fact that I was successful in a “Traverse” hearing as it is called one year ago where a support case by the same custodial parent was dismissed for improper service. I actually got the city marshal process server hired by her to admit on cross examination that he lied under oath before the last support magistrate. Or maybe they just don’t care about “law and order” anymore. We got to get this guy, Leon Koziol, out of the way at all costs, legal or illegal.

To my surprise, the security deputy was still pursuing me outside the courthouse to serve me again with the same papers even after Eby’s ruling that I had already been served. Now how close did this pursuit come to the one which resulted in the murder of Walter Scott? The only thing which separated our fates was the mood and mentality of this sheriff deputy who managed to barge into an unrelated (custody) proceeding and take control of it. Stay tuned! It gets better!

Between the dweeby proceeding and clueless one of December 15, 2017, I had the parties named in my state Supreme Court case served properly with my complaint. I did this with a privately retained process server. We had to travel hundreds of miles over a two day period to serve New York’s top judge in Albany, and judges Eby and Tormey in Oswego (Lake Ontario) and Syracuse. It cost me hundreds of dollars to comply with “the law.”

All that was left to serve in my newly filed lawsuit at our December 15th support hearing was the “custodial sociopath” and Clueless Carraway. We got the sociopath, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, in the court lobby and then my server joined me in the back of the courtroom  before Magistrate Natalie Carraway. She progressed through the usual formalities.

That’s when I learned that my custodial adversary was now represented by her sixth attorney employed by Social Services (while she was earning nearly $100,000 annually as a tenured Frankfort-Schuyler school teacher receiving $45,500 in tax free child support only two years earlier, again under threat of incarceration to a debtor prison).

When the subject of our next appearance came up, I logically raised the mail service challenge and in-court service by a sheriff deputy assigned to court security. But my ordeal never ends when it comes to shocking events. Clueless Carraway informed me from the bench that she had taken it upon herself to investigate the service issue already (before I even raised it at our first appearance now underway).

Magistrate Carraway had secured the transcript of Judge Eby’s custody proceedings at public expense when it was my adversary’s legal obligation to do that at her expense for purposes of proving proper service. More bizarre, Judge Eby would eventually become the appeals judge in her support case and therefore tainted as a biased witness to proper service.

Hey this is New York, don’t try to figure it out. In my lawsuit, I explained why judges and experts could not understand my ten year ordeal, but stick with me anyway. It’s for your own good. You’ll just have to trust me on that. Judge Clueless announced that she was accepting her colleague Eby’s ruling on service while selectively excluding the county policy question which preceded it.

That’s when I responded with the chaos that would follow from her precedent which I was certain that no judge in my (Oneida) county would adopt. I asked Clueless to imagine what our system of justice would be like if any court security deputy could simply interrupt any court proceeding to serve papers for a private party in a separate case. An angry Carraway was unmoved as presiding judge here. And that’s when her world was rocked.

If that was her firm precedent, I asked her to accept service of my state Supreme Court summons and complaint which named her as a defending party by my process server seated in the back of her courtroom. She made me repeat that question as it was evidently beyond her comprehension that a judge could be served by a litigant while deliberating on his case.

But come on man! This is exactly what had occurred to me in Judge Eby’s courtroom four days earlier and she had just ruled that this was an acceptable mode of service. Utterly discombobulated, Clueless Carraway finally replied that she was going to conclude this first appearance and attend to matters in chambers (this was her only case and she was probably intending to consult her assigning judge, James “Bond” Tormey about it all).

But our needless wait in the court lobby for Carraway’s exit had its fateful benefits because the deputy was enticed in the meantime to respond to our casual inquiries about what had just happened. He gradually disclosed that he had been contacted by an Oneida County family court clerk (only minutes after my arrival for Eby’s hearing and Hawse-Koziol’s observed entry into that clerk’s office) to serve papers for someone. Deputy Dummy replied, “sure, why not” while abandoning his security post for this purpose.

Deputy Dummy then confirmed that he had no idea who this service was for and that he was not being paid for it. After all, that would be double dipping and likely the crime of official misconduct inasmuch as he was already being paid a wage for public safety purposes. Making matters worse for him, he also conceded that he was not a part of the Sheriff Department civil division which by law must charge a fee for such private purposes.

I could go on and on, but you probably know where I’m going with all this now. That’s right, the same state Inspector General who caught my ethics lawyers falsifying time sheets. After all, imagine the liability consequences if a violent event erupted in the court lobby while Deputy Dummy was preoccupied, uninvited, in closed proceedings where no one was in danger. Judge Tormey’s chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 just for being directed improperly to conduct “political espionage.”

This was also a nail in the coffin for my state Supreme Court case against Dweeby Eby, Clueless Carraway and James Bond Tormey. Can a better case be made for gender discrimination practiced by those who apply public dollars and special court privileges to give free process serving to a custodial mother while dad is required to pay for his? Shouldn’t we “lock her up” along with all the others who do this?”

There’s much more to come. Stay tuned!  

   

 

        

Advertising Campaign Can Overcome Censorship of Family Court Corruption

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Let’s face it, mainstream media will not do it so we have to expose an epidemic on our own, the American way. Our children are worth it. Over the past month, I have embarked upon an advertising campaign in upstate New York to overcome widespread censorship of family court corruption. You should consider doing the same in your city or town.

It has become an epidemic which is harming our families, health, workplaces and moral fiber as a nation. A single half page advertisement for my new book, Satan’s Docket, resulted in a flurry of calls to local media according to reliable sources. The public is demanding an investigative report and exposure of the real issues which two family judge candidates are ignoring or covering up.

You can look up that ad entitled: Can Your Judge Be Bribed? on-line (pg A14  of hard copy) in Utica Observer Dispatch, October 15, 2017. And that was before a full page ad which I sponsored today (Sunday, October 22, 2017, pg A15)  entitled: Is Family Court Becoming A Ponzi Operation? At first blush, the question appears extreme because we are led to believe that courts are very high places and their judges have reputations “beyond reproach.”

Indeed that is what lawyers claimed after chastising me for filing a motion for disqualification of my custody judge, Bryan Hedges. That motion was based on a federal lawsuit by his chief family clerk resulting in a $600,000 recovery based on her refusal to engage in “political espionage,” (Morin v Tormey). The chastising ended months later when the same judge resigned for sexual abuse on his handicapped five year old niece. As an adult she called to commend my reform efforts.

These and other horror stories are itemized in my advertisement series this month and detailed in my book available at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. That book has been sent to media contacts as far away as Paris and California. A major news organization in Manhattan has e-mailed me with an interest in a potential documentary. As fellow parents and court victims, we need to do the same in communities across the country.

At present there is no protection for judicial whistleblowers like me. Judges and ethics lawyers (who resigned in my case for falsifying their time sheets) have been relentless in their retaliation. Serial rulings against me have gone to unconscionable extremes to discredit my public message after 23 unblemished years as a civil rights lawyer and ten years as a model parent. In my book I have compared their shameless onslaught to a Rodney King beating with the fists and batons replaced by orders and edicts.

If you are interested in genuine reform, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website where our ten year efforts and services are detailed. And help our cause by sharing this post.
