Family Judge Sued in her own Courtroom: Merry Christmas !

Christmas scene outside my home. And yes, I personally attached the star to the top of that 60 foot pine tree by climbing it. We’ll be celebrating again tonight at the same location. (not the full moon of course).

It’s true, it happened, a story of for the ages, and spiced with court corruption on steroids. We couldn’t have tried to make this event take place. But it did in a place called the Oneida County Family Court in Utica, New York. And the gift was delivered to Judge Scrooge only days before Christmas Eve, 2017. You’ll need a little background to get your own reward from it.

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. Judges acting like the children they’re supposed to be protecting went ballistic in retaliation for my exposures of corruption. They did so with no regard for law and ethics. 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 civil rights attorney who spent 30 years in litigation. What a great Christmas present as so many have discovered through recent orders at

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, do it for your families and children.

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 or his 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 court corruption 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 guy 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 assigned by Syracuse Judge James “Bond” Tormey (Morin v Tormey family court “espionage” case) to harass me with every possible abuse of judicial office. The Jimbo twins were 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. 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! 





Is Kelly Hawse-Koziol A Custodial Sociopath?

Kelly Hawse-Koziol and court-appointed child lawyer Willam Koslosky tried to slip by a fraudulent relocation notice to court and father with a confirmation report containing dad’s e-mail address gmai. com (without letter “l”). The family judge later disqualified from the case excused it, thereby allowing a childless millionaire to play dad at the new residence without the real father’s knowledge until discovered almost a year later.

You’ve seen the programs: Investigation Discovery, Unsolved Mysteries, Forensic Files, Snapped, Dateline and American Greed to name a few. They can’t grow fast enough to keep pace with the psychos and sociopaths they feature, often resulting from fatherless homes and family court dysfunction.

Unfortunately these programs focus on horrific crimes, murders and Ponzi schemes. What if one of them or a new one focused on custody crimes. It’s not yet recognized as such but many parent-child murders have already been labeled as PAS or Parent Alienation Syndrome. A more comprehensive depiction might be “Custodial Sociopath.”

Okay you read it here first, maybe it’ll catch on and one day become one of the countless conditions recognized in the psychiatrists’ DSM-5 manual. It could lead to legal grounds for a custody change, even a termination of parental rights given the severe harm it inflicts on “noncustodial” victims  and their innocent children. Here is a quote from one of my reports:

For now we’ll have to offer it to the public as a theory or rule of law that is long overdue. Like any such rule, we have to apply it to a real case to make for widespread acceptance. And boy do I have a case. It’s called Kelly Hawse-Koziol, a Frankfort, New York high school teacher and “custodial parent” of my daughters who was transformed into a “custodial sociopath” by a corrupt family court enterprise.

Her crimes were many but never prosecuted because to do so would mean to arrest countless criminals in these courts who profit from “custody wars.” In the case of Kelly Hawse, she did it through fraudulent and dismissed offense petitions, routine perjury and the brainwashing of two innocent girls.

Many “custodial” mothers have responded to my last post regarding these “sexist courts” as preposterous because it featured the “bizarre” notion that men can be sexually harassed (or framed for money or attention). These feminists were not expecting the tables to be turned on them after all the groping and sexual harassment claims they’ve been promoting lately.

When I raised the undeniable discrimination and harassment of dads in our nation’s domestic courts, I was accosted on Facebook with such outdated “Rip Van Winkle” claims that a man’s duty is simply to support and protect children. I do not know which rock these types crawled from under but this is 2017 not Pleasant Valley circa 1950s.

You can’t have it both ways. Equal rights means what it says. The Constitution does not incur a disappearing act at the steps of family court, the last bastion of institutional discrimination (against male parents) remaining untouched in America today. Census Bureau reports prove it, 85% paying so-called “child support” are still men!

It has led to a fatherless America and crimes of unprecedented variety featured on these programs. Anyone doubting the role of women in this epidemic should search Albuqueque, New Mexico and the many horrific murders committed by gold diggers and “black widow” convicts there in recent years.

One of them was Ellen Snyder. Other than her murder conviction, the narrative can be compared to Kelly Hawse-Koziol and her murder of my father-daughter relationships in order to have me replaced by a childless, millionaire named Joseph Flihan, Jr. This is a wanna-be dad who exhibits some serious defects that any real father would want investigated.

Ellen Snyder did not marry “for better or for worse.” When her second husband was doing well financially with a new home for her son of an earlier marriage and infant daughter of the current one, all was good. But when he was diagnosed with MS leaving him disabled at that  dream home, Ellen decided to shoot him dead in his bed. She actually managed to convince her son to help her bury him under a slab of concrete (new driveway).

But eventually the teen high school kid at the time could not live with his conscience and helped convict his sicko mom years later. In the meantime she had everyone looking for the missing dad in another state under the fiction that he had run off to live with a gay lover and therefore ending all contacts with his native community and family.

How is this mentality any different from the psycho “custodial parents” who brainwash their children to commit the crime of parental alienation? In either case of physical or relational murder, the “noncustodial parent” is rendered dead to the children along with the victim’s extended family. Kelly Hawse-Koziol murdered my father-daughter relations. And she did it for money, sex and status with alarming parallels to Ellen Snyder.

Let us join together to end Parent Alienation Syndrome and freaks like Kelly Hawse-Koziol, America’s first “outed” custodial sociopath. It’s important that you help me help you in this parental rights crusade.

Protester in Poland Burned Alive Like America’s Thomas Ball With Far Greater World Attention


Parental Rights are everyone’s concern

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

According to this week’s Associated Press, hundreds of people marched in the streets of Warsaw, Poland “to honor a man who set himself on fire to protest policies by Poland’s ruling (political) party.” He was protesting a destruction of the rule of law and democracy in the country. Sounds a lot like our government bureaucracy in Washington which is destroying parental liberties through the rule of money and taxation.

The article goes on to report that this human rights hero, Piotr Szczesny, a 54 year old chemist, “set himself on fire on Oct. 19 and died more than a week later… (leaving) a letter explaining that he was protesting a government (that was) limiting civil liberties, violating the constitution and making Poland an object of ridicule internationally.”

Wow! This Szczesny guy could be living here in America and making the same statement about our bureaucratic liberals, their incessant attacks on our duly elected president, and what they are doing in Washington to take away our human rights. Their socialist manifesto is the only form of free speech allowed in this country. Any other opinion will be suppressed, censored and discredited in the most ruthless manner.

Thomas Ball was a 58 year old American father whose family roots trace back to Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington (whose statues may soon be torn down by these same fanatic leftists). On June 15, 2011, he sat down quietly on the steps of a New Hampshire family court to protest child control practices which deprived him of contact with his offspring. He poured gas over his head, lit himself up and died almost instantly.

There were no street protests, no court reforms, no international news coverage, indeed this human holocaust barely made the Boston Globe. They merely washed his ashes into the sewer. Granted, he left a manifesto of his own urging people to firebomb these courts, but the constitutional violations he cited have only grown worse in our nation’s family courts (supported by federal Title IV-D funding).

Everyone is then aghast at the growing forms of domestic violence and mass murders occurring across the country, our most recent horrific event this past Sunday in a church no less. When citizens are deprived fair and just treatment in our courts of law, they will take their grievances to the streets, securing their own forms of justice. Until meaningful reforms occur in these “constitution-free” tribunals, that violence will only grow. There is no escaping it.

It is a rule of last resort when a good parent is turned evil in the face of a debtor prison for a parenting tax which has no accountability. Family courts hide this reality with propaganda such as “child support” and “custody awards.” To make this lucrative system work, one parent has to be marginalized, alienated or outright removed from his or her children’s lives. “Noncustodial parents” are actually paying for government’s seizure of their own offspring.

Shared parenting legislation is routinely crushed because it generates no revenue from our federal government and much less family controversy for lawyers to exploit. You will find no accountability from a self-regulating court system or investigative reporting because the rule of money controls our media through advertising and gutter politics have eclipsed common sense and human rights, leaving confused victims to self-help remedies.

Today is election day for family judge candidates throughout the country. In the upstate New York county of Oneida, a family judge race is on the ballot. There has been no debate on the real issues, only the standard fraud that “I’m doing this for our children” en route to a $2.5 million salary intake over the course of a ten year term (when looking at the graduating scale of increases set annually by a new “commission” in place of our Legislature).

This giant farce prompted me to pay for advertisements behind a write-in candidate, a sort of “none-of-the-above” protest against not only the perpetrators of this sick anti-family system but the selection process which leaves us with no real choices. Although I have received resounding support (as a former city corporation counsel and county executive candidate), it is unlikely that voters will make the quick trip and write in a preference (even though voting is free of charge).

There were only two ads in a single newspaper making the write-in suggestion, no signs, radio or television commercials. And there was no request to vote for me in particular. Hence no great expectations exist because there has never been a write-in candidate who made the voting radar here. But we can make a statement for reform and that depends on the victims taking action for their own sake.

Ironically, the family judge election is the lead race in this year’s off-season. Yet a look at the same newspaper’s election day editorial encouraging people to vote reveals a full range of local races highlighted. Not one mention is made of the family court race. Coincidental? Is it also coincidental that secondary and social media like this one, Leon, are being monitored and censored?

As Adolph Hitler once said in Mein Kampf, if you can convince the people that the state is looking out for their children, they will “happily” give up their rights. Kindly share this message, and as always, feel free to contact me at our office at (315) 380-3420 or my cell at (315) 796-4000. I will be in Manhattan again this week lobbying for a federal investigation of my ordeal, other horrific cases and family courts generally, but I will get back to as many callers that I can.


And if you don’t think there are a lot of angry moms and dads out there, here is one of many write-in votes being committed to me today. This one has no name, caller ID or presence on any of my contact lists. But to write me in with capital letters and a photo taken at the voting booth for proof, I have to feel good about it despite the overwhelming odds.

This addition to today’s post comes at 3:35 pm and election district records will show that I have not voted yet. I’m not sure how many of these write-ins they will recognize because I have no poll monitors, but it’s nice to see the boldness in commitment to my reform message.



Congressional Oversight Committee Reviewing Report For Investigation of Family Court Corruption

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,, 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.

After Walter Scott and Dallas Shootings, Family Court Corruption is Reaching Another Boiling Point

Dr.Leon Koziol attending a family human rights conference at the United Nations in May, 2016 where he delivered a report which predicted escalating levels of suicide and violence as a result of family court corruption and state take-over of fundamental parental rights.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown may have said it best when describing the state of affairs among law enforcement in this country. After the targeting and murders of five Dallas police officers last week, he declared that we’re expecting too much from cops these days.

As examples he cited unleashed dogs, policing social injustices and preventing crime in neighborhoods where 70% of the families are raised by single mothers. He emphasized that First Amendment requires media to fairly report the underlying causes of our present crises.

Welcome to Leon, a component of secondary media attempting with little success to expose those same causes. In two reports to U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch, Dr. Leon Koziol, civil rights advocate, explained how corruption was being suppressed in divorce and family courts across America to feed a trillion dollar industry. A generic reply many months later referenced only a “letter” with no indication that anything had been reviewed.

See Dr. Koziol’s blog post and most recent report to U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch dated June 14, 2015 that was ignored by her office – (Click Here)

The June 12, 2015 report predicting an overload of the system leading to senseless attacks upon law enforcement personnel can be downloaded from Scribd (Click Here)

In those reports, Dr. Koziol also predicted that family court victims were reaching a boiling point. It was based, in part, on an unarmed father, Walter Scott, who was shot dead in the back on April 4, 2015 not simply because he was African-American but because he was fleeing a child support warrant. Both white and black traffic cops were charged. Already all is forgotten.

The whole incident with a $3 million city settlement could have been avoided if the laws were geared to equal parenting. Instead Lawyer  greed and lucrative conflict caused by an antiquated custody system remain the “law” in conflict with natural rights of parents. One parent households are the product of this one parent (custody)  system.

If you are a regular follower of this site, you know how the domestic and disciplinary courts of New York have exploited Leon’s children and law license to suppress the First Amendment. A gag order on this site was set aside recently after a mandamus show cause order was signed in New York Supreme Court against Family Judge Daniel King. The offender then disqualified himself after all the damage was done.

Enter replacement Judge James Eby, newly seated in Oswego Family Court, who merely took over where Dan King left off, continuing a shocking level of systemic bias for all of the filings and reform efforts here over a ten year period. His decision of July 12, 2016 was already written prior to argument which he mandated to occur that day in capital letters by PERSONAL APPEARANCES.

This was all good for child lawyer William Koslosky who simply billed the taxpayers for his undeserved fees. But it required the parents to make four hour round trips to attend already decided proceedings instead of teleconferences utilized by closer judges in the past. Obviously this was pure retaliation for the successful removal of fellow Judge King and his gag order. Judge Eby previously denied Fathers Day to Dr. Koziol and was visibly angered that it was procured anyway without his permission and without incident.

In his edict, Eby overlooked a prior removal of incompetent child lawyer William Koslosky and never even mentioned a disqualification motion or its compelling grounds for his own removal. This is how they avoid accountability on the record while abusing judicial office to suppress exposure of gross misconduct. Yes folks, once again you can’t make this stuff up.

Dr. Koziol has never been charged with  unfit parenting or any crime unlike others who receive unrestricted parenting time. Judge Eby simply orchestrated an outcome which will leave his public critic forever without any child contact, all because a gold digging mother, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, decided to replace the real father with an unfit, childless millionaire named Joseph Flihan. She committed perjury and fraud in the process, i.e. her testimony that e-mail notice of child relocation was successful with “” (“l” character missing).

The corruption here is out of control and it requires elevated public response. The injustices will not be swept away but incur greater exposure and consequences instead. Such corruption has been ratified through inaction of our federal courts and state judicial commissions. When the corruption gets this bad, victims take matters into their own hands. Welcome Dallas Police Chief to our justice system on yet another neglected front.

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.

The Rev. Al Sharpton & Leon Koziol, J.D.

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.

Dr Koziol Asks U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara For Investigation: D.C. Rally on 9/17 Gaining Broad Support

Judicial commissions in virtually every state are overlooking vast numbers of misconduct complaints. Recent reports in New York and California show that well over 90% never reach the investigation stage, thereby encouraging corruption through impotence and effective ratification. It’s all window dressing and outright unconscionable especially when children are exploited for profit. These are our courts and we’re entitled to accountability.

When six years of complaints against multiple judges were ignored, civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, declared enough was enough. No matter how much money this millionaire, Joseph Flihan, was flashing in front of gold-digger Kelly Hawse-Koziol, Leon’s daughters were not for sale. These judges had a duty to preserve genuine parent-child relationships after taking needless jurisdiction over them. A reckoning was now in order.

Family Judge Daniel “A-Okay” King of Lowville, New York was the final straw. A scheming ex-spouse swore under oath that she transmitted notice of residential relocation of Leon’s children to the millionaire’s home after concealing it on the family court record for eight months (discovered by the real dad on Fathers’ Day 2015). If you or I had done this, it would have yielded amber alerts and a contempt sentence. But Judge Dan King excused it and the New York Judicial Conduct Commission said it was “A-Okay.”

Well it’s not “A-Okay.” It’s parental alienation and father replacement of a psychotic dimension, immoral as Pinocchio’s nose is long. And it requires justice and a remedy even if the victims have to take matters into their own hands. These public servants are not above the law. Leon’s custody judge was removed from his case despite opposing lawyers’ claims of a reputation above reproach. One year later he was removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct upon his five year old, handicapped niece. So a formal request was issued this week to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to investigate.

Since social media is doing little to leave the comfort of their keyboards to protest this growing epidemic, Dr. Koziol is reaching out to other impacted constituencies and prominent activists on all sides of the political spectrum to help the cause behind an anti-corruption rally at Lincoln Memorial on September 17, 2016 (and another one yet to be set in Utica, New York). A copy of Dr. Koziol’s formal request is reprinted below:

Re: Moreland Commission Testimony and Systemic Retaliation

Dear Mr.Bharara:

Like you, on Constitution Day, September 17, 2013, I testified before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. However my focus was on New York’s divorce and family courts. When I arrived in lower Manhattan at Pace University, I relied upon my First Amendment rights to expose judicial misconduct. But the retaliation, including that of the Judicial Conduct Commission, was relentless. Within four months my daughters were taken from me and within days of the premature dissolution of the Moreland Commission in March, 2014, a report was issued denying law license reinstatement after an orchestrated six month suspension. It was due, in part, to my testimony in your jurisdiction (appended to that report).

Accordingly I am asking your office to investigate violations that have long surpassed the civil stage, including RICO authority over relevant public servants in the state’s third branch of government. My testimony included fabricated college degrees used by a family judge to elevate child support in retribution for my valid complaints to that Judicial Commission also headquartered in your jurisdiction. That judge stepped down last month after a mandamus order was procured in New York Supreme Court resulting in removal of a six month gag order on my website.

The ethics lawyers engaged in the related witch hunt against me were terminated for falsifying time sheets without any public charges, ethical or criminal, ever brought against them. The corruption here is systemic, and the list goes on. It has no other logic than an orchestrated attack upon my public criticisms under the political influence of Fifth District Administrative Judge James Tormey, see i.e. Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010)($600,000 recovery for chief family clerk for “political espionage” unlawfully directed against political adversary).

My ex-secretary was influenced by outsiders to tamper with mail, orchestrate ethics issues after 23 unblemished years as a civil rights attorney, and never prosecuted for stealing six figures despite a comprehensive report in 2012 replete with records and witness affidavits. She was recently convicted of forgeries after operating an illegal law practice upon later victims as predicted in my report. My saga reads like a John Grisham novel but it is real and horrific from a human rights standpoint.

I copied you on a June 23, 2016 letter to the heads of New York’s Judicial Conduct Commission and those public officials who, like the Moreland Commission, created it. A copy is attached. On June 17, 2016, I sponsored a news conference on the steps of the United States Supreme Court regarding a petition for writ docketed that day entitled Leon Koziol v United States District Court of NDNY, No. 15-1519. I was joined by a Florida doctor, California dentist and Virginia engineer also victimized by our nation’s family courts under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, 42 USC 651 et. seq. Three days later a letter issued from the Commission exonerating my corrupt family judge against all logic other that judicial self-protection.

This is an extraordinary case because a judicial whistle blower is being subjected to a form of “judicial water boarding.” It requires resources which have been taken from me to achieve justice and correction. After my support and family judges were removed this month, their replacements mandated strict compliance and personal appearances in remote court rooms. This contrasts sharply with past practices to evidence clear targeting akin to the facts of Morin, supra. I have been helping many parent victims in Manhattan over the years including others who testified at Pace University. I would be happy to discuss the matter and share my evidence with any investigator or member of your staff.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Very truly yours,

Leon R. Koziol, J.D.
