Supreme Court Asked to Appoint Special Master to Benefit Parents in Court

img_0278
From left, Dr. Leon Koziol of New York, John Bautista,  of Virginia, Dr. Dan Pestana of California and Dr. Mario Jimenez of Florida hold news conference on steps of Supreme Court to announce the filing of petitions to rectify constitutional abuses in family courts.

Dr. Leon Koziol announced today the filing of a Supplemental Brief with the Supreme Court in the case of Leon Koziol v United States District Court for the Northern District of New York pending since June 17, 2016. On that day, four parents from different parts of the country held a news conference in Washington D.C. to help persuade the high court to give us meaningful accountability and constitutional protection of our parental rights.

The Brief dated September 17, 2016 was submitted this week to alert the court to escalating retributions from the states to our reform efforts. Interestingly three of the four parents who filed their petitions in May, June and July, 2016 are having their cases considered on the same day. The fourth parent received a decision this month in his federal case allowing him to go forward on certain of his claims in the California system, a rare event.

Significant to all victimized moms and dads, the Supplemental Brief asks the Supreme Court to order appointment of a Special Master to hold hearings and investigate Title IV-D funding of our state courts, erosion of parental rights and its adverse impacts on our children. It is part of a mandamus and prohibition action which Dr. Koziol filed in a federal appeals court in Manhattan against judges of the Northern District of New York due to a half century of undue deference to our nation’s divorce and family courts.

Congressional Oversight Committee Reviewing Report For Investigation of Family Court Corruption

image
Former city councilman and parent advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, sharing war stories with U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer at Utica Boilermaker Post Race Party on July 10, 2016. Recently removed Family Judge Daniel King might take issue with this photo as evidence of a “prohibited alcohol related gesture.” True story: he made that up from a wedding toast by Leon after getting no competent evidence of unfit parenting even though a barmaid in King’s home town has the judge’s drink committed to memory with his own children nearby. This is the extreme which corruption and double standards have gone to suppress a judicial whistle blower.

Parental and civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, has submitted a report to a Congressional Oversight Committee for an investigation of corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Authority for such an investigation is found under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act (Child Support Standards Act and federal incentive funding).

Dialogue was commenced weeks ago with congressional staffers upon completion of an alarming report focused on Custody Court Dysfunction. Among other abuses, this report cited parental conflict caused by federal funding to the states based on the number and magnitude of child support orders mandated under relevant federal and state statutes.

This yields biased family judges and draconian enforcement practices. At least one British court denied extradition to the states for this reason. It was also a cause for the police murder of Walter Scott, an unarmed father shot dead five times in the back while fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop. Dr. Koziol attended his funeral services in South Carolina last April, predicting an escalating level of violence before national media.

And so it is today. Dallas Police Chief David Brown blamed the recent targeting and murder of five police officers on the unrealistic expectations and burdens placed on law enforcement across the country to police such things as loose dogs and domestic issues. Title IV-D and its liberal entitlement mentality are central to Chief Brown’s concerns, but he is likely unaware of the impacts due to First Amendment abuses which he also cited.

There can be no better example of such abuse than the report’s author, a judicial whistle blower whose website, http://www.leonkoziol.com, was nearly shut down by a family court judge, Daniel King. A New York Supreme Court order was obtained which led to both the removal of Judge King and his protection (gag) order. That order was caused by diverse beneficiaries of a trillion dollar court industry.

Put more bluntly, police officers, veterans and minorities are being killed to protect over billing practices of lawyers and bottom feeders in family court. This post is motivated by a report this month revealing a veteran suicide rate of 20 per day and the suicide of yet another loving dad this week who was deprived of a proper parenting relationship while being subjected to child support incarceration (Dr. Ted Fattorros).

Fellow victims, this is an epidemic caused by a calculated break-up of the American family and our moral fiber as a nation. Fathers and non-custodial mothers are being deprived of their most fundamental human rights to enjoy a distinct family structure with their own offspring. It is being deprived by a federal funding law which mandates unequal custodial titles for profit. You have to get immediately and directly involved. Keyboards in the comfort of your homes may provide therapy but they are achieving nothing.

That much is obvious by the escalating violence and human carnage we are seeing today. Dr. Koziol, one of our nation’s leading reformists has been severely targeted due to his exposures and predictions. In a pending writ before the Supreme Court, his ordeal has been depicted as “judicial waterboarding.” Now he needs our financial and personal support. An anti-corruption march is planned for Constitution Day, September 17th at Lincoln Memorial. Spread the word, join us while there is still time, and help elevate this to a million parent march so that government oppressors will finally see the light.

Had Enough Corruption? Join Protest at Lincoln Memorial on 9/17

Let’s finally do something about government corruption on Constitution Day. They’re not paying any attention to your keyboards at home.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Haven’t we all had enough of government corruption. Not a day goes by without another public official taking bribes, abusing office or getting a free pass to commit crimes. From the top down, across genders and all branches of government, corruption in America has gotten out of control. If we are truly a self governing nation, it’s high time we took it back with a march from Lincoln Memorial to the White House on September 17th.

If you think it’s going to correct itself or maybe you think someone else will organize and protest in your place, think again. That ain’t happening. You need to get seriously involved today. It’s your government too. Freedom is not free. We have inherited a duty from our founders for the sake of future generations.

We all know how our country was founded, but is there something from the Spirit of ’76 which tugs upon us today? Have the modern day trappings of electronic devices, moral depravity and self-love eclipsed the patriotism that defines America? Are we on a collision course with a new world order destined to erode our rights to extinction?

Look no further than divorce and family courts. The rights of parents are being tortured beyond recognition for profit. Parallels to the Revolution should send chills down the spine of any conscientious lawyer truly committed to a professional oath. In plain terms, these courts have assumed monarchial authority  over our children through “equity” powers carried over from feudal England, see i.e. Finlay v Finlay, 148 NE 624 (1925).

That power has expanded over time to a point where “constitution-free” zones have been erected among local tribunals fueled by a revenue generating scheme known as Title IV-D funding (family conflict incentivized by federal money from Social Security). It is a judge created “equity” power eroding a full range of rights protected by our Constitution. In so many respects, these tribunals have become more powerful than the NSA, IRS and CIA.

The reason, of course, is money. Make mom and dad fight over an archaic “custody” award and you can swallow up life savings and college funds to benefit a giant trough surrounded by lawyers, evaluators and family “experts.” They include my custody judge, Bryan Hedges. I had him disqualified over lawyer claims of a reputation beyond reproach until he was ousted altogether for admitting to sexual abuse upon his handicapped five year old niece.

The parenting right traces itself well beyond the birth of our nation, indeed to the beginning of civilization itself. Governments have come and gone but families and parent-child relationships are the reasons we got here. It is that “bundle of rights” so fundamental to humanity that our founders saw no reason to put it in the Constitution. The Supreme Court declared it as our “oldest (protected) liberty interest,” Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000).

This all-inclusive right is now under assault. Bureaucrats are devising all sorts of fictional “wars” to raise taxes, i.e. a war on half the human population with the VAWA Act. This is a modern day equivalent of the Stamp Act invented to pay for British troops in the colonies. A war among parents pays for a glut of lawyers, over 600,000 in New York and California alone. And if you can exploit children (like Hitler directed in Mein Kampf), the people will “happily” surrender their rights. Welcome to the war machine known as family court.

All efforts to organize parents to this reality have failed miserably. The reasons are as diverse as the conflicts inflamed by lawyers. If you’re a conscientious reformist like me, they will exploit judicial office to discredit your name and message, seizing your livelihood, home, assets, reputation and even your children to preserve this gold mine. It has left the parental rights movement devoid of qualified leaders and meaningful support.

Out of law school, I was able to get a restraining order on a $30 million school project, later a judgment in New York Supreme Court declaring a billion dollar casino unconstitutional, and six figure recoveries for victimized women and minorities. Today I cannot get a phone call to my girls enforced by more than 35 trial judges assigned to my originally uncontested divorce case, an atrocity unprecedented in modern judicial history.

For over ten years I have studied this phenomenon, pursued proper channels to a point of incurring anti-filing orders, and assisted court victims in nearly all fifty states. I even completed a book for a mom in Hawaii who was severely alienated from her offspring and hounded as a fugitive for “child support.” Reform has been suppressed and censored as it was in colonial America because parents have been intimidated, stripped of their dignity and reduced to a pathetic state of despair, excuses and outright laziness.

I call it the “Foxhole Syndrome,” parents anxious to tell their war stories without real concern for the greater reform movement. I have been contacted from across the country and remain unable to extricate dialogue from these foxholes, sometimes over a period of hours without donations in my suppressed state. Indeed the reform terrain resembles the movie “Terminator” with “Devil’s Advocate” as its theme. Parents are underground on the comfort of their keyboards “raising awareness” to no one who cares.

Like our Revolution, this terrain is infiltrated by traitors, spies, cowards and plain idiots which distract us from the real enemy. A key example is this CAPRA class action which should stand for Con Artist Promoting Ridiculous Action. It was concocted by a non-lawyer out of jail who managed to convince thousands of victims to join “for free.” Well a brain surgery is also free with a GED volunteer from ISIS. Fancy letters, a lawsuit face page without a person or corporate identity, and a link to an on-line dollar store should have “raised awareness” to a paper Titanic with “all hands on dork.”

This is not to say that its sponsor is without utility, but if that talent could be directed to a real battlefield, we could change America as they did 200 years ago. That’s why I have proposed an anti-corruption rally at the Lincoln Memorial on Constitution Day, September 17th (a Saturday). This is where civil rights has a reform history. Due to past rallies devoid of participation, I have had to seek out prominent people and organized groups.

This sick system extends to school programs, it is a core reason for escalating violence, the decline of all religions and immorality, and it must be dismantled and rebuilt as our nation was. Discrimination, alienation, financial exploitation and state child abuse are all forms of corruption subject to protest. So contact your neighbors, get the signs ready, and let’s show that we’ve had enough. It’s not a problem if they don’t see it, and no one sees a foxhole.

Will Parents Declare Independence on July 4th?

 

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol joined by a Florida doctor, California dentist and Virginia engineer on steps of the Supreme Court to announce filing of a writ to rectify injustices occurring to parents in America’s divorce and family courts.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

We all know how our country was founded, but is there something from the Spirit of ’76 which tugs upon us today? Have the modern day trappings of electronic devices, moral depravity and self-love eclipsed the patriotism that defines America?

After Brexit, “We the Parents” Must Take Back Our Children, September 17th at Lincoln Memorial

img_0298
A Petition for Writ was docketed by the Supreme Court on June 17, 2016 seeking parental rights and reform to oppressive practices in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Four professionals united on the courthouse steps to promote it. Now they need you to join.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol, J.D.

“We the Parents” have had enough. For decades now our government has been invading our private lives while allowing greedy lawyers to profit off our misfortunes in divorce and family courts. They get moms and dads fighting on false promises only to blame us for the conflict and crises they cause in the end.

I’ve seen the corruption and carnage first hand. I took a conscientious stand against my profession after 23 unblemished years as a trial attorney because of needless conflict and irreparable harm to our children. A real lawyer gladiates among businesses, criminals and government. A sleeze ball exploits vulnerable parents, families and innocent children.

It’s turned into a trillion dollar industry, an epidemic at the root cause of immorality, drug abuse, suicides and lack of respect for authority nationwide. In that light, when you’re ill, you see a doctor, if you’re in trouble you see a lawyer, if your teeth are rotting you see a dentist, and if your project collapses you see an engineer. Well all four converged on the Supreme Court steps on June 17, 2016 to help cure this epidemic. They need you now.

They are Dr. Mario Jimenez, M.D. from Florida, Dr. Leon Koziol, J.D. from New York, Dr. Daniel Pestana, DDS from California and John Bautista, BSME, MBA from Virginia. An anti-corruption rally has been set for September 17, 2016 (Constitution Day) in our nation’s capital at Lincoln Memorial. Already our social media promotions are being suppressed. Apathetic victims are filling with excuses on the false notion that someone else will protest for them. But these four courageously took a professional risk on your behalf.

Hear what they had to say. Then construct your signs, contact family and friends, reach out to those desperate for hope and make arrangements to be in Washington. Otherwise the lawyers, judges and therapists will be happily waiting to act in your children’s so-called “best interests” for a big fee. Your state is taking over your parental authority with each passing year. It gives pause to reflect on what the dictator of all time had to say about this:

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long   as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf, Publ. Houghton Miflin, 1943, pg. 403

Dr.Mario Jimenez, M.D. explains the epidemic upon families, veterans and children.

Dr. Daniel Pastena, DDS relates family court corruption and politics in California.

Engineer John Bautista graphically depicts the pain and anguish of parental alienation.

Dr. Leon Koziol, J.D. announces his precedent filing for parents in the Supreme Court.

Anti-Corruption Rally Set For September 17, 2016 in Nation’s Capital


Site of proposed anti-corruption rally in Washington D.C. on September 17, 2016
Site of proposed anti-corruption rally in Washington D.C. on September 17, 2016 (view from Lincoln Monument).

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Have you finally had enough? Hardly a day goes by without another shocking display of government corruption impacting our nation like never before. And no one with a conscience is doing much about it short of knee-jerk reactions to catastrophic events.

From Bernie Madoff to the doctoring of public disclosures in the Orlando mass murders, the public is routinely the victim. Law abiding gun owners are targeted instead of the killer whose terrorist communications were doctored. So who’s the real enemy here?

As a self governing nation, we have a duty under our Constitution to make a stand. This is your government they are corrupting, your IRS paid for by your tax dollars that is suppressing free speech, your courts which are complicit in the scandals. It’s time for a mass rally against corruption in Washington D.C. on Constitution Day, 2016.

That’s only three (3) months, so if you love your country, your families and way of life, join us for a defining moment in American history. Don’t expect your neighbor or the few activists here to do it for you. We can be just as apathetic, bowling, basketball-watching or “raising awareness” to no one who cares from the comfort of our keyboards, but nothing will be gained until we make our grievances known, like it says in the First Amendment.

So get started now. Don’t get diluted through distractions. You mean something under the true government. Remember the phrase “We the People?” That’s you and me along with the rest accepting corruption as if it is to be expected now. Exercise your rights as you would your own body for the health of a government we created.Get organized in your back yards, construct the protest signs, and make arrangements with organizations to be there.

This a one time event with broad based sponsorship. Any person or organization can join. There are no barriers to participation. A steering committee of professionals has been formed to unite us behind this important cause of liberty. But we will secure no permits for the event near the Lincoln Monument until enough support and donations have emerged.

As a civil rights advocate, attorney for a former president of the National Organization for Women and now the Director of National League of Fathers, Inc. I’ve done my part and sacrificed everything for equality and justice in our nation’s courts. Now it’s your turn to be part of a growing movement to “Clean Up Government.”

For those of you who think we are not on the verge of a crisis, note the following: When a group of parents (including me) gave testimony before a Public Corruption Commission on Constitution Day, 2013, we were instantly targeted. That Commission was prematurely dissolved when evidence began implicating those who created the Commission. Top leaders of state government were eventually convicted of federal crimes and sent to prison.

If we focus only on corruption involving innocent children and families, the condition of our government becomes very alarming, much beyond the eroding of “public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary” as found in United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011)(federal judge employing a human gene to be discovered 50 years from now to make his decisions).

One exemplary case (you know there are many more) involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mom not convinced the FBI to act on her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be on the bench dispensing “justice.”

However his conviction of federal crimes was not the shocking part. Due punishment was compromised by colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If disgraced ex-Judge Garson is still being defended after a crime at the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally?

While the “Honorable” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income, another Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to defray the cost of legal fees needed against misconduct charges pending against him. Spargo was already being prosecuted for judge misconduct and resorted to criminal behavior to get out.

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, but behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

In my own case, I challenged a custody judge based on his undue parental alienation at a closed session with my girls (known as a Lincoln hearing without parents allowed in). I was especially vulnerable with all the corruption I was exposing. My motion for his removal was granted despite lawyers declaring his reputation as one beyond reproach. He was removed altogether from the bench the next year after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece (Syracuse Family Judge Bryan Hedges).

The chief ethics lawyer and staff attorneys in the witch hunt executed against me were terminated by the state Supreme Court for falsifying their time sheets. No public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever brought in contrast to the treatment of the commoners who steal from government. And these are the standard bearers of lawyer ethics charged with oversight of billing practices that bankrupt parents in divorce and family court.

Worse yet, the victims are left with no recourse. This is because judges have legislated for themselves a rule of immunity even from malicious conduct unlike the rest of us when we violate the public trust. The people have never consented to such a rule. To verify, consider a proposition on the ballot where government was proposing to act in a purely malicious way against a constituent. Such a proposition would surely fail by a near unanimous vote.

Ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes. He is back practicing law and teaching ethics while his campaign poster remains on public display at the state’s high court. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe they are gods. He went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a lawyer assisting his mistress to discover a man making extortionist threats on her daughter. That man turned out to be the judge himself.

Then there’s the family judge in Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant while presiding over her child support case. Judge McCree was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct involving numerous cases only after the affair (and pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.

In Pennsylvania, two judges were imprisoned for the now infamous “Kids for Cash” scandal. It featured kick-backs from contractors benefited by the number of minors sent to juvenile centers. Over 4,000 convictions had to be overturned by the state’s Supreme Court now plagued by its own corruption. Two of its justices resigned due to misconduct leaked by a new Attorney General.

That same court retaliated by suspending her law license prior to any hearing or conviction. Even while I was filing my case before the Supreme Court this past week for corrective action, the same court was handing down a decision condemning the misconduct of that state’s ex-Chief Justice, see Williams v Pennsylvania, 579 US __ (June 9, 2016).

A natural outcome of the foregoing is lawlessness. Although examples abound, in my small city, a police investigator committed murder-suicide on his ex-spouse after leaving support court. Draconian practices produce homeless victims. In San Diego today, it was reported that a 50 year homeless man was beaten to death by two high school boys and a cheerleader. Does it get any sicker from inept state interference in parental discipline?

Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of inflammatory protection orders issued. It left three children with no parents and city taxpayers responsible for a $2 million wrongful death pay-out, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011). An unarmed black father, Walter Scott, was shot dead five times in the back by a police officer in South Carolina simply because he was fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop.  That city paid out $3 million so far.

In his book, A Promise to Ourselves, actor Alec Baldwin gives a scathing report of his protracted divorce with Kim Basinger. After a voice message to his daughter was made public, Mr. Baldwin was condemned as an abusive parent. Largely censored were the alienation tactics which fueled this exchange. So painful was the aftermath that he admitted to suicidal tendencies at his high rise apartment and during a drive to the Berkshires. Years later the same daughter was featured in a second wedding ceremony for her father.

The 2011 case of Thomas Ball is also instructive. An oppressed father seeking to ignite protest burned himself alive in front of a family courthouse in Keene, New Hampshire. There was no mainstream coverage in contrast to a similar self-immolation in Morocco which attracted world protest. This incident was cited only last month by me during a human rights conference to dissuade a prominent figure in Manhattan from attempting self destruction as a final reform tactic.

And so, while our federal government escalates its military involvement around the globe, soldiers are returning to empty homes, child alienation and felony support warrants. I was able to save another victim from suicide at a parent convention I sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009). Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment in these courts. Yet a vast number became eternally separated without any reform.

Enough ! Be a part of the solution. These are your fellow citizens at risk. Contact me for further information at Parenting Rights Institute (315) 380-3420. I will not respond to keyboarding exercises. Serious inquiries only.

Parents to Rally Against Family Court Corruption June 22 at New York Supreme Court in Utica

 

Dr Leon Koziol with former New York Governor David Patterson in Manhattan this week. Leon is seeking his support for family law reform and provided him with a copy of Leon’s recently published report entitled Custody Court Dysfunction: A Nationwide Epidemic.
 
Dr. Leon Koziol will be arguing a case against father discrimination, court corruption and parental alienation on June 22, 2016 at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica, New York. On May 3, 2016, a state Supreme Court Justice signed an order directing family judge Daniel King to answer a mandamus action regarding a gag order issued on this blog site, Leon Koziol.com.

One day later, that same Judge Daniel King canceled a trial on the gag order he issued in November, 2015, the day before the next business day when it was set to begin. That trial had already been adjourned without explanation in early April leaving Leon and the administrators of this site under a condition of arrest by ambush for six months given the vague terms of King’s gag order (disguised as a protection order). 

Obviously Judge King, new to the bench, was abusing judicial office to punish Leon’s public criticisms of his incompetence and 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. Leon reported King’s misconduct and widespread corruption in New York’s family courts, i.e. Leon’s custody judge (Bryan Hedges) removed from the bench for admitting  to sexual misconduct upon his handicapped five year old niece. 

When Leon toasted his own niece at her wedding with his daughters at the table, Judge King issued an order suspending contact based on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” which was not prohibited anywhere if you can even guess what that means. Yet the barmaid of a tavern in Lowville, New York has Judge King’s cocktail committed to memory when he patronizes there with his own children. Yes, true story. As we’ve stated often on this site: “You just can’t make this stuff up.” 

Leon sought recourse before the Commission for college degrees fabricated by King and a support magistrate to elevate Leon’s support obligations for punitive incarceration purposes. Only yesterday a support magistrate stepped down from Leon’s case bringing the total trial level jurists to 37. Yes folks  this reads like a John Grisham novel. But unfortunately it’s a true story. Meanwhile in the same court, convicted criminals and drug abusing moms are getting unsupervised custody of their children. 

You might think with the gag order set aside that Leon has already won his case set for June 22nd, the Wednesday after Fathers’ Day at 1:30 pm. But the wrongfully issued gag order which includes bizarre prohibitions against strangulation and larceny constituted pure harassment by a family judge exploiting innocent children to suppress Leon’s reform efforts. That’s why arguments are going forward even after defense counsel got an adjournment from the original date of June 10th. 

Readers of this site will assuredly move on to some other diversion without making any effort to come to these arguments for moral support. That’s why you are being victimized with impunity in your own cases, because you have allowed them to treat such cases as a trouble-free and Constitution-abusing zone. 

Fortunately there are dedicated Americans like Jim Ginther of Staten Island, New York City who has offered to organize a freedom train out of Penn Station to rally at the courthouse in Utica. Call us at Parenting Rights Institute, (315) 380-3420 to do your part for America’s children and families.

Fathers and Free Speech Case to be Argued June 10 in New York Supreme Court

 

honoring-soldiers-veterans-day-2-20110615
Fort Drum Military Base, one of America’s largest, is surrounded by the judicial district where this case, Koziol v King, is being heard. Isn’t it time we sent a message of support on the home front when our service people return to courts that still discriminate against fathers? Census Bureau reports continue to show that 85% of child support payers are dads who also comprise nearly 100% of those committed to debtor prisons when they cannot hold a good job. Of the 58,000 soldiers who gave their lives for this country on the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in D.C., eight are women.

Divorce and family court victims as far away as Florida and California are already committed to attend public hearing on gag order, equal rights and parental alienation.

After ten years of litigating for parental justice as high as the United States Supreme Court, Dr. Leon Koziol may finally get his day in court on behalf of divorce and family court victims everywhere. A New York Supreme Court Justice has just signed an order to hear arguments in a mandamus proceeding on June 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica. Mandamus is considered extraordinary, in this case directed at a family court judge named Daniel King in Lowville, New York, and it is open to the public.

In the past, Leon was bombarded with technical dismissals, jurisdictional chaos and judge misconduct designed to suppress his overdue reform efforts in our third branch of government. Unscrupulous lawyers across America have turned our children into a lucrative trillion dollar industry eating alive our life’s earnings, retirement savings, health and college funds. And the corruption is escalating for reasons found in Leon’s ordeal described with horrific detail at Leon Koziol.com.

After 23 unblemished years practicing law in federal and state courts, he was suspended, threatened with contempt, deprived of a livelihood, denied access to (important people in his life) and now they are seizing his home.  We can’t disclose who those important people are because this site is still subject to a gag order which Leon seeks to remove on June 10th so that fraud, perjury and judge misconduct can be conveyed to you when government commissions fail us.

The timing before Fathers Day and location of these arguments are also extraordinary. An opportunity like this may not occur for another ten years. Leon has sacrificed too much for this cause and is destined to lose this case because the establishment and gold mine he is seeking to reform are too powerful. But if we can finally rally together at the Oneida County Courthouse in a judicial district which includes the Fort Drum Army Base and former Griffiss Air Force Base, a profound message can be sent to courts all across America.

Leon is highly focused on protecting military, minorities and law enforcement, or those mostly harmed by the antiquated custody system. Instead of promoting shared parenting, our federal government today is obsessed with transgender bathrooms in North Carolina with Attorney General Loretta Lynch accusing us of being racists if we don’t support her. What???  Leon was a highly accomplished civil rights attorney and lawyer for a past president of the National Organization for Women. Racism and religious convictions are not the same. And while everyone else is demanding equal rights, fathers are still discriminated through an abuse of Title IV-D federal funding.

This courthouse in the center of New York state is three hours from New York metropolitan area and Buffalo, two hours from the Canadian and Pennsylvania borders. Already supporters are committed to attend from as far away as Florida and California. Hotel Utica and the Radisson downtown are less than a mile from Thruway Exit 31 (Interstate 90). These were the sites of various civil rights forums sponsored by Leon that were targeted by  ethics lawyers engaged in the witch hunt against Leon. They were ultimately fired by a licensing court for falsifying their time sheets. No public charges were ever brought against them.

You may have heard about Arkansas Judge Joe Boeckmann charged this week with sexual predator crimes over a thirty year period through judicial favors. In the mandamus lawsuit and at Leon Koziol.com, you will read about Leon’s custody judge, Brian Hedges,  removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct on his five year old handicapped niece, family judges who fabricated college degrees to elevate Leon’s support obligations, and his consequential testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption which led to more severe retributions. You will read about judges sent to prison in Brooklyn and Albany for soliciting custody and divorce bribes, and of course the “Kids-for-Cash” scandal in Pennsylvania.

It’s out of control people. Stop keyboarding in the comfort of your homes to one another and people who don’t care. “Raising awareness” this way is misguided and creates false hope. It’s time to make a stand against parent waterboarding by a corrupted system. Spread the word every way you can. After the June 10 arguments, Leon will file a petition for writ at the United States Supreme Court in Washington D.C. concerning a similar mandamus action dismissed by a federal appeals court in Manhattan. An opening excerpt is provided below. For more information and desperately needed donations, contact our office, Parenting Rights Institute, at (315) 796-4000 or Leon direct at (315) 796-4000.

 

U.S.  SUPREME COURT  WRIT   (OPENING):

While our federal government asserts itself around the globe to advance human rights, its military is returning to divorce and family courts which exploit children for profit. Public safety officers, such as our responders on 9-11, are being hauled into the same courts and subjected to discrimination on account of their gender or line of duty. Many are alienated from their children, committed to debtor prisons or oppressed as inferior parents to feed a trillion dollar industry.

It is a highly protected industry orchestrated under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, 42 USC section 651 et. seq. States are rewarded by the number and size of “child support” orders manufactured by their courts. Superior and inferior custody classifications are essential to these money transfers and mandated by federal statute even when parents with near equal incomes and childrearing periods set up contrary agreements, see i.e. Bast v Rossoff, 91 NY2d 723 (1998).

Accordingly support judges have been rendered inherently biased against all those classified under the inferior “non-custodial” label with or without justification. Such classifications are arbitrary, stigmatizing and institutional in countless cases, requiring otherwise cooperative parents to compete over their children. Their infringement of a fundamental right to parent one’s offspring is easily replaced by childrearing plans and orders which retain more family oriented labels such as mother, father and parent, see i.e. Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Albany Fam. Ct. 2001) at fn. 1(veteran family judge declaring “custody” and “visitation” to be offensive terms in an antiquated system which brings out the worst in parents when children need their best).[1]

However such less intrusive custody substitutes are foreclosed by the blanket classifications and marginalized by overburdened courts committed to the funding scheme. Over time, such injustices have reached constitutional dimension while ever elusive, utopian and overbroad child rearing standards displace parental discretion without compelling state interest contrary to a right declared by the Supreme Court to be the “oldest liberty interest” protected by our Constitution, Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000)(prolonged custody case can itself violate parental rights), Parham v JR, 442 US 548 (1979)(fit parents presumed to act in their children’s best interests).

A full range of constitutional rights is easily trampled under principles of equity, or the power seized by family judges to “father” our children, see often cited Finlay v Finlay, 240 NY 429 (1925)(“paternal jurisdiction” derived from feudal common law). In plain terms, the Constitution is being ignored because the custody scheme is lucrative for those who depend upon family controversy for their livelihood. It is being facilitated by judges charged with the highest duty of safeguarding such rights, Federalist Paper No. 78; Marbury v Madison, 5 US 137 (1803).

Support inequities triggered by this scheme (child support standards act) are typically countered with custody tactics to result in untold harm to our children, i.e. Pearce v Longo, 766 F.Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011)($2 million city liability for police investigator committing murder-suicide with ex-spouse after exiting support court leaving children without parents). In his highly researched study, Is There Really a Fatherhood Crisis, Professor Stephen Baskerville places the blame on government: “What many are led to believe is a social problem may in reality be an exercise of power by the state,” Independence Review, vol VIII, n 4, Spring 2004, at pp 485-486.

Unsuspecting litigants are also exploited by an expanding bureaucracy under Title IV-D to finance welfare costs created by unrelated and irresponsible parents. The ones properly devoted to their children therefore shoulder an unjust burden merely because they reside separately from their partners.[2] These support judges engage in highly abused fictions such as “imputed income” to raise obligations beyond realistic capacities.[3] There is no express provision for shared parenting under the federal entitlement statute, and the regulatory scheme has replaced the child’s needs with “way of life” standards to elevate support even further. It has removed critical discretion from proper decision makers with outcomes that shock the conscience, see fn 3 and 4.

The “band plays on” in our nation’s family courts because civil rights attorneys and parental advocates such as petitioner are subjugated, vilified and punished for their exercise of reform efforts otherwise protected under the American Constitution. Meanwhile, gay, lesbian and trans-gender parents, soon to be victimized by this same lucrative system, have achieved far greater strides in equality with repeat court actions than fathers have over a century of discrimination.

This is a petition for writ of mandamus and prohibition directed to the federal court of the Northern District of New York. It seeks relief which is central to any self-governing society, namely, the right to seek reforms to this over regulated and oppressive system of child control. In that vein, it matters not whether the decision makers here agree with the foregoing legal posture concerning a federal statute. It matters only that the petitioner is accorded his inalienable human right to express public views and raise his offspring free of the severe retributions he sustained for criticizing our third branch of government, see i.e Garrison v Louisiana, 379 US 64 (1964).

     [1]  Petitioner’s revenue-bias conclusion was deemed frivolous by the lower court. However it is supported by our nation’s top civil rights experts at the Justice Department. They issued a report on March 4, 2015 after the Ferguson, Missouri race riots concluding that the region’s municipal courts were committing civil rights violations through concocted arrests and excessive fines as part of a revenue generating scheme. There is nothing to distinguish that conclusion from petitioner’s long asserted claims here regarding family courts which incite needless controversy to exact excessive support orders and attorneys fees. Unequal custody classifications are the workhorse behind all this with rampant prejudice against male parents which can no longer be denied or tolerated. The Census Bureau and private entities continue to report that nearly 85% of all support obligors are men. In his court filings, petitioner has described this as “the last bastion of institutionalized discrimination remaining un-checked in America today.”

[2]  As this case verifies, money interests have displaced the “best interests of the child” in family court. Financial disclosures are mandatory for gauging child support but exploited by unscrupulous lawyers to concoct needless and even bizarre issues for fee maximization. When resources are exhausted from both parents, they orchestrate cause for settlement or client abandonment. Ethics violations are so numerous and even accepted as part of a litigious child control process that attorney disciplinary agents cannot logistically police all the abuses. Worse yet, these agents are able to abuse their entrusted positions to suppress accountability. This case features a chief ethics attorney and two lawyer subordinates who engaged in the witch hunt against the petitioner-attorney (and father) for his public disclosure of vast misconduct. They were terminated from their court-appointed positions as standard bearers of lawyer ethics after an Inspector General discovered their falsified time sheets. No public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever instituted, see Robert Gavin, Oversight lawyers quit amid inquiry, (Albany) Times Union, July 10, 2013.

[3] The injustices have reached epidemic proportions. Only one month after the Ferguson report, a fit and unarmed father named Walter Scott was shot dead in the back while fleeing a child support warrant during a traffic stop in South Carolina. He had been imprisoned a number of times due to a growing support debt based on imputed income capacities. Under prevailing law, an imprisoned parent for any reason continues to face support obligations at pre-commitment levels. Upon release, the debtor is typically overwhelmed and unemployable. He is nevertheless subjected to a rule that one should not profit from the mis-deeds which caused the incarceration even with full rehabilitation. Only because of the “mis-deeds” of this traffic cop, quickly charged with murder, was it publicly revealed that one out of every eight persons imprisoned in South Carolina resulted from support debts. Nearly all are male parents, and a review of warrants lists across New York reveals a similar pattern. South Carolina boasts one of the strictest support enforcement laws with jail terms of up to one year, yet it reports one of the worst collection rates under the federal (performance) statute, partial source: Robles and Dewan, Skip Child Support. Go to Jail. Lose Job. Repeat, New York Times (front page), 4/19/15. Debtor prisons have been invalidated since the mid 19th century but re-introduced through willful support violations. As the case before this court demonstrates, such a contempt avenue is an illusion behind a de facto debtors’ prison due to biased judges having a financial stake in the outcomes of support litigation. Such jurists bring court revenues and personal advancement through support performance measures and payments derived from sources other than the debtor parent, see i.e. Bast, supra. As relevant here, the petitioner-father issued public statements at the Walter Scott funeral before national media, civil rights groups and reporters of the New York Times as part of his ongoing reform efforts. He suffered further retributions in the lower court, state family courts and attorney disciplinary tribunals by actions and decisions beginning only weeks later.

 

 

 

 

Over 70 Million Fathers Have Yet to Organize for Equal Rights

 “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Edmund Burke

From the Film
Tears of the Sun
featuring Bruce Willis

In America today, our government is engaged in the lucrative expansion of a child control bureaucracy that is harming our families, productivity and moral fiber as a nation. This vast public enterprise has invaded every aspect of private life, often wielding power beyond that exercised by the NSA, CIA or IRS. It is a silent and insidious trend eroding parental rights repeatedly declared by our Supreme Court to be the “oldest liberty interest” protected by the United States Constitution.

This interest is shared equally by fathers and mothers. But in practice, the male half has not been accorded its rightful place among our human rights due to a profit motive in family court driven by needless custody, support and divorce contests. Census Bureau reports continue to show the gender disparities on all domestic fronts. After promoting a parental rights cause in Paris recently, I was amazed to note how a million people together with world leaders could rally in that city within days to support free speech. Meanwhile, here in the states, more than 70 million fathers have yet to mobilize after a century of widespread discrimination.

Such discrimination is having harmful impacts on all aspects of society and quite likely the female population more so than its counterpart. Veterans, minorities and high profile figures are particularly vulnerable to a court system that has placed money and politics over genuine parent-child relationships. Fathers are a vital component of any social or family structure as they have been since the beginning of civilization. Unfortunately federal entitlement laws and incentive funding to the states have marginalized that role to a point of virtual extinction. This has led to educational costs, heinous crimes and moral deterioration on a vast scale corroborated by an exodus from all manner of religion. In practical terms, our taxpayers are funding the creation of social ills and then forced to pay for it on the back side with costly welfare programs.

Future generations will look back one day and be amazed at how truly barbaric our domestic relations courts once were. A scheme of laws and processes derived from feudal equity doctrines has been retained which features loving parents engaged in brutal contests over their offspring in a public arena. A winner-take-all battle for custody leads to overregulation of families by the state and marginalization, alienation or outright extinction of one fit parent from the children’s lives. Anal investigations of the combatants’ backgrounds by self serving advisors incite further controversy to last a lifetime. It is a spectacle reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum.

No person or entity has ever been able to achieve a comprehensive study of the vast detriment which this archaic custody and support system has had upon our society. Any such effort would assuredly be stymied because custody and unequal parenting are highly profitable. Yet common sense dictates that our nation could be well served with sweeping reforms here in our least scrutinized branch of government. We can put a man on the moon, split atoms, engage artificial intelligence and achieve vast breakthroughs in medicine but remain unable to extricate family courts from their nineteenth century practices.

On March 1, 2015, I released a Public Initiative Summary and Funding Request which aims to make family court family-friendly. Entitled “We Are Fathers,” it is a nationwide effort to promote shared parenting laws and accountability in our nation’s divorce and family courts. A six point action plan features a rally in our nation’s capital on the Friday of Father’s Day Weekend and a Political Action Committee comprised of parental advocates from our fifty states. It is an ambitious project but one which warrants our time and financial support. It will take literally millions of dollars to successfully oppose the bar associations and political insiders who profit from father discrimination. Yet since this initiative was released, followers of our site continue to pass over the “donate” and court program options.

One experience illustrates why fathers can expect more abuse in these courts for decades to come. One father in Florida contacted me for advice on how to find a good lawyer after his last one cost him $10,000 and did absolutely nothing. He wanted to visit lawyers in action to discover one who would truly fight for him. I offered our court program for a mere $299 which explains how lawyers’ hands are tied by the federal support and funding laws. It shows how custody is abused to fleece money from extended families with small chances of altering the status quo no matter how much is spent on lawyer fees. Nevertheless he was committed to throwing more money after bad with another $10,000 donation to the lawyers. Nothing was committed to his true allies here.

If you have a heating problem in your home, it might well be considered an emergency. You don’t just look at it and pontificate with your neighbors because you then risk greater problems when your pipes freeze. So you logically pay for a repair service, preferably one with the experience and commitment to do the job right, and your family’s well being is thereby preserved. In the father’s rights movement, the opposite is occurring. We are actually feeding the system which has resurrected debtor prisons, effectively criminalized fatherhood, and made us pay for the child alienation and marginalization of our roles as natural parents. We see the emergency and know the consequences, yet the victims keep multiplying with apathy and some misguided notion that reform is free and easy, that there is always someone else out there who will do the repair work for you.

Anyone who has followed this site, Leon Koziol.com, knows that I have sacrificed everything for this cause. It is a worthy initiative with impacts to last generations. However, it is also plain to see that my public message is being discredited by our adversaries with the goal of extinguishing any promising reform effort. There is a reason why this site and its sponsor are being so targeted. However my efforts can last no longer without meaningful support. So if you truly believe in your country, your free speech rights and most important, your children, do not pass over the donate button. In fact, you should go that extra step by soliciting other donors to the cause and sharing this post. Finally you should start a personal initiative to grow the numbers for a rally in June. If our government does not hear of a problem, it will not act upon it. That’s just how a self governing society works. Our military sacrifices for these rights every day. Let’s honor them properly. Will you finally make your voices heard, all 70 million of you?

Child Support, Like Obama Care, Headed for the Supreme Court

Administrators Note:

The following column was published on March 6, 2010, as a special to the Utica Observer-Dispatch. It properly described child support as a welfare tax upon fathers and non-custodial mothers (roughly half of the separated parenting population). Now, this very issue will be presented before the same Supreme Court that ruled yesterday that the health insurance mandate is a valid welfare tax (transition to a socialist government). The relevant writ in Dr. Koziol’s Parent Vs. State will be filed on Constitution Day, September 17, 2012. We are asking all victimized parents of divorce, custody and support laws, to join us in a rally on the steps of the Supreme Court. Together, we hope to convince our nation’s high court to hear this precedent setting case regarding crucial family issues.

Dear Editor:

If you believe that children require money more than they need their fathers, read no further. This column is based upon traditional beliefs, biological equality of parents and our cherished rights under the American Constitution. It is made necessary by gross mischaracterizations of my child support/license suspension headlines.

The public’s diverse experience with domestic matters has made me an undeserved sounding platform for gripes having no relevance to my personal case. After commending my civil rights accomplishments, for example, writer Mary Ules “takes offense” with my sacrificial stance on child support by citing irrelevant parallels to her life as a single mother during the eighties. A gender insecure Robin Cecilia follows with a gripe in outer space proclaiming ownership rights over children based on a birthing process caused by human evolution.

The problem with this platform is that I owe no child support to either Ms. Ules or Ms. Cecilia and certainly nothing to my ex spouse. My hard earnings are owed only to my dear children, and I need no government directive, vindictive lecture or career blackmail to recognize this. It is a principle of natural law fully protected but not properly enforced under our Constitution.

Successfully observed by committed parents since the beginning of civilization, this principle has become tortured by a mandatory custodial institution of childrearing for those who simply choose to live apart. It is a gender discriminatory process which places money and children over parents as a part of a barbaric and never ending “custody” war, hence the social and moral breakdowns of our day.

Our Constitution prohibits government interference in childrearing privacy unless serious abuse, neglect or abandonment is found. No such finding could be made or even concocted when I quietly filed an uncontested divorce in September, 2005 immediately prior to my prominent bids for public office. It was based upon more than one year of successful (joint) childrearing activities in separate homes. However, when the state intervened in February, 2006, based upon a money collection formula, four years of escalating controversy brought us to the world stage at the United Nations.

During this period, my petitions for parenting time were routinely denied while money petitions were vigorously enforced. This led to the absurd result that I was paying the state and its appointed “custodial” parent to systematically end my parent-child relationships. Support money was being diverted from my children to lawyers and court costs thereby making me the sole payor for both sides of the process. This is not uncommon to countless oppressed fathers simply due to an arbitrary caregiver doctrine and their gender status at birth.

Such discrimination is rationalized for the same reason that slaves, ethnic minorities, and women were oppressed in an earlier era: free labor and arbitrary empowerment. Unlike dictatorial regimes, however, our government has perfected this oppression through legislative propaganda which exploits the child into a multi-billion dollar industry, fleecing parents of finite resources and discouraging income productivity.

Quotes and sound bites to a vast audience unfamiliar with a complex case could not hope to overcome decades of stereotypes and draconian laws designed to perpetuate this child control industry. My best hope, therefore, existed in a news conference at my home where genuine child support could be observed first hand. A father’s mortgage, taxes, play areas, and holiday enjoyment are a father’s child support, made impossible when a third of income goes to taxes, and another third to a support collection unit.

My point continues to be this: a self sufficient father has the same right to enjoy a family unit as a self sufficient mother. An American form of government encourages each to grow those units. Under the current socialist form, I nevertheless satisfied years of one sided obligations until they were abused without any child payments in return. This showed not only that I was a responsible parent, but prepared to commit my career to enforce God given rights to raise my children.

Unlike the fifties, a vast majority of today’s parents are raising their children in separate households. If we can bus five year olds to school, we can certainly allow fathers in the same communities to enjoy equal time with their offspring. Such logic, however, would negate the need for lawyers and child support transfers as the engine behind federal grants and collection unit interest revenues to a dysfunctional state government.

In short, the privacy right which I have been compelled to secure through the courts is a meaningful father-child relationship free from joint power abuses by the state and a superior creature of law known as the “custodial parent.” It may be analogized to the woman’s privacy right established in Roe v Wade.

For those still clinging to the current antiquated system, however, child support is a welfare payment because it lacks accountability. Abuses such as drug or gambling addictions, lawyer generated controversies, partner support, income destruction and father replacement agendas, are highly disguised in our overburdened courts. Still unanswered by my government is how I am supposed to raise my children without a 23 year law license.

Very truly yours,
