Blockbuster Case Now Playing in Family Court: It’s Rocky vs Rambo

“I would love to come off this bench and wipe that smirk off your face!” Judge Gerald Popeo to a litigant in his city courtroom. Despite such physical threats and racial comments with lawyer witnesses, i.e. “country niggers” and “cigar store Indian,” the Commission on Judicial Conduct allowed him to continue now as an “Acting Family Judge” in Koziol v Hawse-Koziol case.

Before continuing with this latest post on judge corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts, I would like to say Hello to all the judges, lawyers, doctors, professors, investigators, commissions, national and local news reporters,  and even New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore who may be monitoring this website, Leon Koziol.com. Confidential informants continue to report a growing number of “fans.”

Many of you are friends, others are bent on revenge, and most are seeking information or assistance. If you’re new to this site, opened in 2010, you’re in good company with more than 6,000 followers from Europe to Hawaii. This will be a “breaking news” post you will want to make viral because it is yet another shockingly true story. As we have assured time and again: “You just can’t make this stuff up.”

Judge Gerald Popeo is a racist and pompous judge who managed to keep his job in an upstate New York city court despite a battery of ethics charges brought against him by a prosecutor, public defender, an African-American lawyer and court victims before the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct. Because its proceedings are secret, we cannot tell you how many complaints he has faced during nearly two decades on the bench.

On February 12, 2015, Judge Popeo was merely censured by that Commission instead of removed, although to his credit, the Commission Chair, Thomas Klonick, dissented. He voted to sustain the findings made by a hearing judge concerning those charges of using racial slurs as a judge. They included at least two depictions of a prosecutor acting like a “cigar store Indian” and another, to an African-American attorney no less, where Popeo “joked” that New York City black people refer to upstate black people as “country niggers.”

That’s not all, the charges and findings that were accepted included temper tantrums and serial contempt citations without the requisite warnings and due process protections. In one case, evidently copying some of the movies that Gerry has watched (i.e. “My Cousin Vinny”), Judge Popeo sentenced a man to five successive thirty day periods in jail for each facial gesture or comment about the lack of justice in his courtroom. Only after getting a phone call from his chief administrative judge, James “Bond” Tormey, did he reduce the 150 day sentence.

But among the “injudicious” acts which the Commission did accept for public censure, the one which was most disturbing is a violent threat from the bench made to another litigant in his courtroom. After noting a grin on his face, Judge Gerald Popeo, evidently assuming the mantra of judicial Rocky Balboa, warned that he “would love to come off the bench and wipe that smirk off your face.” The Commission could not excuse this street thug remark because those in the same court could hear it clearly and it was recorded by a court stenographer.

But it gets better (or worse depending how entertained you are by Judge “Rocky” Popeo). After the litigant was excused and exiting the courtroom, a different kind of grin caught Judge Rocky’s attention. So he summoned him back for a contempt sentence because, in his delusional mindset, this poor sap “gave (Popeo another) nice big smirk …. as if to say, blank-you judge.” Seriously Sylvestor? Even the real Stallone might have you committed to a mental institution.

As a lawyer and litigant in Popeo’s kangaroo court and many others over a thirty year period, I have made all sorts of grins, objections and human expressions which could fall in the Popeo contempt playbook. And now this judge has been assigned to my custody and support cases as an “Acting Family Judge” in a court he was never elected to. How’s that for domestic violence prevention and our children’s “best interests?” You women better not grin in Gerry Balboa’s boxing court.

Yes you read that correctly. After my family court matters were assigned to remote courts at Lake Ontario and near the Canadian border, with 150 mile round trips to receive decisions already written, Judge James Bond has now assigned a judge only a few miles from our (parent) homes who threatens violence. Welcome to Trial Judge #41 assigned since my originally uncontested divorce was filed 12 years ago in 2006, a judicial record by most accounts.

It occurred after the Oswego and Herkimer judges recently stepped down. Judges #39 and #40 gave no reason, and I was given no notice of their disqualifications, but they came after my complaints to oversight authorities. Those published complaints focused on their unauthorized back room involvement in each other’s separate cases to orchestrate unlawful service of a support summons threatening as much as seven (7) years in jail. That’s more than violent felons and child molesters get. My pedophile custody judge Bryan Hedges (look him up) got no prison time!

I had been challenging service by mail on the face of that summons and petition because it leads to innocent non-appearances or fatal law enforcement for money collection purposes. A sensationalized example is an unarmed African-American shot dead five times in the back while fleeing a support warrant at a traffic stop in South Carolina  (Walter Scott). 

When I became one such victim of a non-appearance, an earlier support magistrate corrected the human error over the phone in 2012. But not Gerry Balboa. He was on some kind of mission given to him by his boss Judge James “Bond” Tormey who assigned all the other 40 trial jurists to my family court cases. He did so in a manner which mirrored the retributions inflicted on a chief family court clerk which resulted in a $600,000 recovery against “Bond, James Bond” in federal court for her refusal to engage in Tormey’s “political espionage.”

Again we don’t make these things up here at Leon Koziol.com. Look it up at Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010). Shameless Tormey was neither removed from his position nor did he resign from the bench. With my full page advertisements and editorials published over the past few months in Syracuse, Utica and Watertown, New York mainstream newspapers, testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, and continued exposure of rampant judicial misconduct nationwide, the retaliation elevated to unprecedented levels in Oneida County Family Court on March 3, 2018.

On that day, I made it clear that Gerry had better not threaten me with violence and most assuredly, he had better stay put on his bench. For the reasons that follow, I knew this was beyond question a contempt by ambush and an unlawful act of attempted imprisonment which a citizen has a right to defend against in such an extraordinary case. Think of it as a Rambo One movie with the corrupt cops replaced by corrupt judges.

In my reports I compared the judicial gang assault inflicted upon me for so many years to a Rodney King beating with the fists and batons replaced by orders and edicts. If Gerry decided to confront me physically and unlawfully under the protection of our court security, it raised the real question of who they should taser. Who was the real criminal here with this focus on domestic violence in these (family) courts? What would Sylvestier Stallone  do if he was real in this environment?

While depicting my discrimination and First Amendment motion papers as “rants” without so much as a first court meeting or argument, Rocky Popeo joined his predecessors in denying me parent-child contact since my 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. He did so without any finding of unfit parenting, criminal charge or child protection report. Meanwhile “rehabilitated” heroin addict moms and life term prisoners were being reunited or allowed contact with their children.

Not mentioned was Popeo’s conversation at a golf and country club during one of my client cases or the unsolicited “rant” he gave me in the presence of a key witness last summer at a local bar. He accused me of some involvement in that censure prosecution. I had no such involvement, no obligation to answer his “rant” anyway, but he was obviously moved by my history of litigation success on behalf of African-American victims in his court, federal court and Utica city government.

That history included former “black” Public Works Commissioner Stephen Patterson and his pastor father who I represented and recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars as a result of law enforcement targeting and wrongful discharge, i.e. Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004). Judge Popeo was obviously making a connection between my civil rights advocacy to the racial slurs which nearly caused him his judgeship.

In another case, Mr. Patterson, who had never seen a jail cell, was imprisoned by Judge Balboa in 2010 for non-appearance on a series of nuisance and city ordinance violations. I was not able to represent him then due to the ethics witch hunt already in place, so Steve got front page news after attempting suicide upon discovering that a belt had been placed in his cell while dazed and asleep.

Ultimately he was found “not guilty” on all charges by a jury, and I won yet another ruling for him in a federal civil rights case later that year for police and city harassment. As hard as it may be to believe, I won it while suspended because the papers were prepared by me beforehand and no qualified substitute lawyer could be found.

Rocky Popeo persisted in his beliefs that I had somehow influenced his public censure. He even inquired whether I had filed a complaint against him regarding his eviction ruling upon my former law office the same year as that censure. The current judge assignment should never been offered or accepted on grounds of revenge and prejudice alone. Such persecution has now required resort to natural laws for my protection. I am no Rambo, but I finish the fights that others start without provocation or genuine lawful authority.

Shocking New Book on Family Court Corruption Now Available: Satan’s Docket

 

IMG_1039

Today we are introducing the new Parenting Rights Institute website and its feature book release, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. Nine months in the works and based on thirty years of litigation experience, this book takes you through the horrific ten year ordeal of judicial whistleblower, Dr. Leon Koziol, which forced him to seek international protection in Paris.

However this book is much more. It can be considered a crash course in divorce or family court, your education to an epidemic that is harming our children, families, schools, workplaces and health as a nation. It was a herculean project, years in the research and writing phase with a 108,000 word manuscript completed only last month.

At present this book is the hands of a major publisher with a possible release date early next year. In the meantime it has generated inquiries from a documentary producer and will hopefully lead to an overdue investigation by Congress or the Justice Department into the federal funding abuses in our state domestic relations courts. We will keep you posted on that objective.

While all this was in progress, so were the many family judge elections across the country which promise to expand this epidemic and bring even more harm to future generations. One such election in Oneida County, New York sparked the early release of this uncensored version of Satan’s Docket. Its author resides in that county and became troubled by the lack of vital discourse on the real issues in these courts. In coming weeks, he hopes to change all that through this unprecedented literary work.

Satan’s Docket was authored in an extraordinary way given the difficulty of attracting interest to such a stressful and complex subject. It was a lesson learned from Alec Baldwin and his 2009 book release, A Promise to Ourselves. That memoir failed to achieve its highly anticipated book sales. Indeed mainstream media was most focused on excerpts relating to his suicide attempts during an incendiary divorce with actress Kim Basinger. Dr. Koziol was invited to Alec’s book signing in Manhattan and shared his ordeal with Baldwin’s agent at Creative Artists in California. More recently, crucial advice was obtained from best selling authors at the Whistleblower Summit and Conference this past summer in Washington D.C.

The title, Satan’s Docket, was a risky selection but has gained wide support. It was proven ironically to be a well selected title after discovering Bradley Birkenfeld’s recent book release at the Summit entitled, Lucifer’s Bank. Mr. Birkenfeld was a whistleblower of the Swiss bank industry who suffered retaliation by a jail sentence of 30 months for tax evasion. On his release he recovered a record $104 million under the new IRS Whistleblower Protection Act. Another new book release at this Summit featured a woman lawyer disbarred for exposing court corruption in New Hampshire. Her book is titled, The Dark Side.

So it would appear that Satan’s Docket is right on target. It was also inspired by former New York Senate Leader Joseph Bruno, whose memoir, Keep Swinging,  was released in November, 2016. Dr. Koziol’s book features two equal length halves. Part One is the Corruption segment of his subtitle. It is the macro part which describes a divorce and family court epidemic nationwide. Part Two is the Carnage half which focuses on his personal ordeal. In order to keep a broad section of readers glued to this book, a collection of shocking stories from around the country is spiced with romance, humor and horror in places ranging from Hawaii to Paris. It is a book well worth reading at a nominal cost that can save you college tuition and untold lawyer fees. It may be the best investment you will make in years.

Please share this post with as many parents, bloggers, media representatives and court victims that you can.

Women Deplorables Ignite Movement to Nominate Donald Trump for Nobel Prize

America’s First Family

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

If you thought the election of Donald Trump was impossible, brace yourselves for his next achievement. There is now a grass roots movement to qualify our American president for a Nobel Prize. Unthinkable you say? Think again.

Other than being a tenacious politician, what qualified Barack Obama for the Nobel Prize after his inauguration in 2009? Even Barack was shocked at the time. After all, what prior achievements did he have as a senator from Illinois?

There are too many parallels to deny Donald Trump this award. Both had their skin color working against them, both achieved historic elections, both were excessively scrutinized, and they both beat Hillary Clinton. Even liberals are getting behind the nomination.

But the greatest indicator of his qualifications is his message. He was elected to drain a swamp that his critics denounced as nonexistent. Then, less than one day after his inauguration, the swamp showed up in our nation’s capital for the world to see.

The so-called “Women’s March on Washington” did not include the near 50% of women who only weeks earlier had voted for Donald Trump, their lone target. But it did include the deplorables that Hillary must have been talking about weeks before that.

And what a swamp it was. As they say, a photo tells a thousand words, and the ones spreading across the internet left us speechless. Never before did a civilized society display so much vulgarity, obesity, hypocrisy, child abuse and sexual degradation.

Indeed the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King would would have condemned this freak show from Babylon in an instant. Their message was free and clear. So is ours today. Drain this giant swamp and the others in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

We parents have to unite to take back our children before they are swallowed whole by that dreadful swamp. Our religious institutions, public safety officers, military and veterans, and moral citizens of America must answer a patriotic call to duty.

I don’t envy Donald Trump’s challenge. However he is clearly on a road never traveled before, like Barack Obama, but this road is a heroic one that exceeds anything previously attempted. And that makes Donald Trump far more qualified for the Nobel Prize.

Administrator’s Note:  As our many thousands of followers worldwide know, we do not employ vulgarity or sexually graphic images on this site. However an exception was made in an earlier version of this post to make our case for major reforms in our divorce and family courts. The photos featured there were taken off the internet and are the sick by-product of state seizures of our parental authority. We are losing our family traditions and moral fiber of a nation. Keep in mind, these disgusting protesters were out in the streets of our nation’s capital where any child, parent or tourist could have viewed them. This is the vulgar-free version of that post.

We are a family court watchdog group offering a variety of professional services to victimized moms and dads. You will find details here at http://www.leonkoziol.com and http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. You can also call our office at (315) 380-3420 or Dr. Koziol directly at (315) 796-4000.

Why Pay A Lawyer If Your Judge Has Been Bribed?

Judges have been accepting bribes for centuries, pictured here milking the family court “cow” with mom and dad lawyers on either side breaking it in half.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Judicial misconduct is the most censored, least publicized and gravest aspect of our federal, state and local governments. You can simply ignore it and move to your next on-line entertainment, but chances are it will find you especially in our nation’s domestic relations courts. So read on and share this post. It may be the most important one you will read in a long time.

The judiciary is our least accountable branch of government. Anyone who dares to reform it can expect severe retributions with no recourse. Judges enjoy absolute immunity for their reckless and even malicious acts. Judicial conduct commissions from New York to California are window dressing entities influenced by politics, typically investigating less than 10% of complaints.

So what does that mean to you? How do you know if your case is not already fixed, rigged or bought-off? You’re spending thousands, even millions of dollars in lawyer fees while your judge has already decided against you due to a bribe or political influence. Are you shocked by that, naive about the people in robes? Well here at Leon Koziol.com and Parenting Rights Institute, we have generated shocking examples of judicial and lawyer misconduct from our work all across America.

We are an up and coming “Judicial Watch” for divorce and family courts, doing the work where our oversight commissions are failing us. Currently we are soliciting investors and donors to upgrade our effectiveness. We will come into your community, home or court to monitor your case and seek accountability for any misconduct. As Director of Parenting Rights Institute with nearly 30 years of trial experience in both federal and state courts, I am dedicated to exposing corruption. It may be the only way you can secure true justice and turn things around.

We offer a Court Strategy Program to keep you from being abused and a team of experts prepared to expose corruption in your case if it exists. It is well worth your while, for he sake of your children if nothing else, to look us up at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com or call our office at (315) 380-3420. Then take a look at this shocking excerpt of misconduct from a book I have written to be published for divorce victim Tamara Sweeney entitled Jurassic Justice:

Examples of court corruption are provided throughout my work for victims nationwide. Many are quietly suppressed and “read like a docket sheet in any criminal court.” That is what I declared publicly time and again. Yet the public continues to hold judges beyond reproach. The fallacy of that belief was well demonstrated by my custody judge who was also declared by lawyers as  “beyond reproach,” at least until he was removed from the bench after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece: In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

One of the shocking cases cited to make my point, and the need for meaningful accountability, 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 mother not convinced the FBI to act upon her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be dispensing “justice.” It begs the question: how many other such judges and cases are there? What can explain Tamara’s bizarre case? We let you decide as our story continues.

The conviction of Judge Garson for federal crimes was actually not the most shocking part of his case. Due punishment was compromised by judges and lawyer colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If Garson’s colleagues are still backing him after a crime which goes to the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally? Isn’t this where precedent is set and examples are made?

While the “Honorable” “Justice” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income through an abuse of judicial office, another New York 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 help defray the cost of legal fees needed to defend against judicial misconduct charges pending against him at the time.

Like Judge Garson, you have to ponder that as well. Judge Spargo was already being prosecuted for judicial misconduct and resorted to more serious behavior to get out of it. He referenced this lawyer’s own divorce which might be transferred to him. The pressure was not uncomplicated. Play ball or else. I suppose the lawyer could have won his divorce for a nominal “fee” to this judge when compared to a contested case. He was placed in a real quandary, deciding ultimately to report the crime only after taking steps to avoid false claims that could cost his law license.

Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes during the nineties. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe that they are gods. Such deep rooted convictions do not disappear. Judge Wachtler went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a New Jersey lawyer assisting the judge’s mistress to discover a man making extortionist and kidnapping threats involving her daughter. That elusive man turned out to be the judge himself.

Then there’s that family court judge in the state of Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant mother 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 for the horrific misconduct by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a judicial corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in high school civics classes. 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.

Bias, coercion, schemes, scams, deal-making and outright crimes are taking place which violate all manner of ethics formally placed in our judicial codes. In our nation’s domestic relations courts, such corruption is taken to the next level under a pretext of family confidentiality, thereby concealing the misconduct and protecting a trillion dollar industry built on needless conflict.

Help Us Petition Supreme Court to Hear Shared Parenting Case and Open Access

 

For the past two weeks, parental advocates from around the country have contacted me to join a petition to the Supreme Court to hear its first ever shared parenting case. This petition also asks our high court to improve access to mainstream Americans with crucial issues necessary for its resolution under our constitution. Instead roughly 100 of 10,000 filed petitions are granted each year (less than 1%), and most of those are reserved for elite law firms and preferred issues such as abortion, gun rights, capital crimes and high level government.

The rest of us are stuck with the outcomes of these “Kangaroo Courts” as Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas once depicted them in the Gault, case at 387 US 1, pp 27-28. To give you an idea of how unjust this has become, during all those years when shared parenting was being declined, the Supreme Court accepted gay marriage and such “pressing” matters as an inmate’s $23 hobby kit. Yes that’s right. We don’t make these things up at Leon Koziol.com. This hobby kit was misplaced by prison staff and it earned a writ by the Supreme Court for civil rights violations.Look it up at Parratt v Taylor, 451 US 527.

Therefore we have to make noise like others did to convince our high court that we moms, dads and our children matter much more than prisoners do. We didn’t commit any crimes. We followed the laws to the best of our logic and capacities even when they became as absurd as many family court orders have. To address questions arising since my last public interview on the subject, I have decided to split the petition into two parts, an informal one to accompany the formal filing as an appendix or reform request and a formal petition limited to ten or fifteen parties selected from the informal group.

As explained in the interview, I will not prepare the complex filing until I see enough support. There is no cost to join although we do rely on donations to this site to defray costs. Such filings by the elite firms can easily exceed $100,000. Petitions of the informal variety can be prepared and circulated by any parental or constitutional rights advocate. No lawyer is required. It should contain the basics, i.e. “We the undersigned do hereby petition the Supreme Court of the United States to hear its first ever shared parenting case and to take action for greater access of the People to its deliberations. This petition is made pursuant to a public message found at http://www.leonkoziol.com.”

The petition should have an address and telephone contact for verification purposes. You should seek volunteers and share this post regularly over the next few weeks. Here is what the later prepared petition will contain subject to additions or modifications arising from any input we may receive. Please do not send individual case summaries. This is not an offer of legal advice. You may check out our programs, investigation documentaries, book publishing and other non-legal offerings at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

QUESTIONS PRESENTED

1) Has the Supreme Court rendered itself inaccessible to petitioners and the vast majority of our citizens in violation of due process and Article III of the Constitution?

2) Has the Supreme Court erected and ratified onerous obstacles to federal court jurisdiction for parents victimized in divorce and family courts contrary to due process, a fundamental liberty interest and genuine principles of federalism?

3) Has the Supreme Court encouraged or justified private remedies for law abiding citizens to vindicate their constitutional rights when its duties were abandoned here?

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

image
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 Koziol.com, 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 “gmai.com” (“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.

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? Are we on a collision course with a new world order destined to erode self-governing principles 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.

Judicial Conduct Commission Renamed Kangaroo Corruption Commission

 

Administrator’s Note: Four professionals, a doctor, lawyer, dentist and engineer, from around the country converged on the steps of the Supreme Court to announce the filing of a writ against family court corruption, see Leon Koziol v United States District Court for the NDNY, Supreme Court Docket No. 15-1519 (June 17, 2016). Three days later, a New York Commission issued a letter excusing the misconduct of one of its subjects, Family Judge Daniel King. This is the same judge who fabricated and ratified a Masters Degree and PhD which Leon never received to elevate child support in retaliation for his complaints to that same Commission. No misconduct said the Commission. Seriously?

By Dr. Leon Koziol, J.D.

It’s been awhile since Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas depicted family courts in America as “Kangaroo” operations, see In re Gault, 387 US 1, 27-28. But Abe never came across New York’s Commission on Judicial Conduct. Now that’s a kangaroo commission if there ever was one. Its members are appointed by corrupt politicians such as Sheldon Silver (now in federal prison), Dean Skelos (convicted of federal crimes) and Andy Cuomo (currently under federal investigation). Governor Andrew Cuomo  prematurely dissolved his own corruption commission when testimony (i.e. me) began implicating the politicians who created it.

Another entity, the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, was created by the same trio of politicians in 2011 as part of a “Clean-Up Albany Act.” By 2015, state legislators were decrying it as “J-Joke” for its impotence. The chair of that Commission was recently named Chief Justice of New York’s high court by the same Governor Andy Cuomo who created both commissions. That should have all people visiting or doing business here very concerned.

Yeah there are so many taxpayer financed commissions these days that the public cannot figure them all out. Hell they all sound good, but what are they accomplishing? The third one (featured here) has kicked legitimate complaints against judges to the curb faster than its kangaroo sister commission in California (reported to have rejected more than 90% filed). It’s a nationwide epidemic calling upon the citizenry to make a stand. A rally has been set for September 17, 2016 at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.  Be there !

As a result, this Judicial Conduct Commission has been renamed the Kangaroo Corruption Commission (KCC) by victimized litigants to accurately  describe the entity’s true character. Okay it’s not official yet, but we commoners who pay taxes and put up with their circus show like to be graphic with what’s really going on. We’re not so easily duped into believing that a catchy title with elite law firm members verify a genuine commitment to public service. They’re the foxes watching the chicken coup. So we call it as we see it.

Today I received yet another letter from “Jean M. Savanyu” clerk of the Commission advising me once again that Lewis County Family Judge Daniel King (“Dan King” as he introduced himself to my family court opponent on the phone) is just a-okay. Now for our 6,000 followers, you all know this can’t be right. Dan King has committed so much misconduct that anyone coming into “his” court should bring along a recorder (since he caused one of my secret custody proceedings to be unrecorded so his misconduct could be concealed).

Appealing such clear misconduct is equally impotent. In my case, the “honorable” Nancy Smith of the Fourth Department denied recourse against King when he issued a support violation order impossible to comply with because it required support payments to an agency without legal authority to accept it. Dan King was simply abusing judicial office in retaliation for my (accurate) public criticisms of his incompetence (see listing below). Nancy is the only judge above trial level ever to be slapped on the wrist by the KCC for giving a glowing reference to a person she never met for personal and political gain as a judge. Does anyone seriously think she could be impartial here?

Hey, as stated time and again, we don’t make this stuff up at Leon Koziol.com. Check it all out on the internet. And while you’re at it, look up ex-New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler, convicted of federal crimes and sent to prison without so much as a footnote from the KCC. So what are you going to do about it? Are you “a-okay” with this sort of government? Are you happy when lawyers get you fighting in family court only to grab everything you worked for in life? Is this how we reward those who put their lives on the line in the military, 9-11 and Orlando? Are you a scared American hiding behind a government monitored keyboard?

Now for the shocker in our so-called justice system: here is the list of incompetence raised before the KCC which it again found was “a-okay.” They kept open the possibility that a real oversight commission or high court might find otherwise just to protect their statures, i.e. “not enough evidence for an investigation.” If the victims of judge misconduct are supposed to do their investigations, what do we need them for, a bully group picking on all the non-lawyer town justices? (check out their so-called accomplishments).

Dan King’s incompetence was re-stated in a petition for writ filed with the United States Supreme Court on June 17, 2016. Social media caused our news conference on the courthouse steps to go viral the next day  (Zuckerberg and company may have taken a weekend break from their select monitoring). The KCC finding of Dan King’s “a-okay” status as a family judge was dated June 20, 2016 on a series of complaints going back years. Coincidence?  You decide:

1) A competent jurist does not issue or ratify a PhD and Masters degree for purposes of maliciously elevating his public critic’s child support for incarceration purposes;

2)  A competent jurist does not insulate the foregoing misconduct from appeal and accountability by coercing a willful support violation under threat of imprisonment;

3)  A competent jurist does not participate in the concealment of his critic’s daughters at a millionaire’s home on his own family court record through delays and rationalization.

4)  A competent jurist does not accept the clear fraud and perjury of his critic’s opposing parent who testified under oath at a January, 2016 hearing that her required notice of residential change was confirmed under electronic address “gmai.com.” This would be akin to testimony of a letter successfully mailed from a trash can outside the post office.

5)  A competent jurist does not issue defamatory forensic orders for the purpose of discrediting the public message and character of his critic without competent support of any kind, only the perjuries of a scorned litigant having no timely personal knowledge;

6)  A competent jurist does not refuse to correct his own appalling errors by motion of the court, he does not retain college degrees as the “law of the case” while imposing an arrest warrant and maximum jail term of six months on a fraudulently supported debt;

7)  A competent jurist does not threaten his critic with removal from a public courthouse at the opening of a custody hearing based on five objections (two that were granted) to narrative and unrepresented testimony of a perjuring and infinitely scorned parenting opponent to create a record that would justify his prior forensic weapons of suppression.

8)  A competent jurist would not violate a stay order by an Appellate Justice by issuing orders suspending his critic’s parenting time ten days later on Christmas Eve 2013, thereby placing that critic in a condition of arrest by ambush due to conflicting orders;

9)  A competent jurist would not sign every requested show cause order by his critic’s parenting opponent after every ex-parte protection order obtained by her was vacated since 2006 including a trial where the critic was not even required to put in a defense.

10)  A competent jurist does not ignore an ongoing extortionist scheme in every decision to date, to wit: the parenting opponent’s threat to a loving father to give up his children to a millionaire replacement for an end to child support. Her conduct remains criminal;

11)  A competent jurist would not conduct an evidentiary hearing on a first appearance without notice, resulting in orders suspending child contact on such grounds as “prohibited alcohol related gestures” when no other “unfit” evidence could be offered.

12)  A competent jurist would not fabricate such an overbroad prohibition that could not be understood, and it was directed to a toast at the wedding of his critic’s niece. When an appeal was taken, it was later learned that this hearing had allegedly not been recorded;

13)  A competent jurist does not retain an order of arrest and confinement of his public critic for inflated support obligations after proof by the critic’s lawyer showed that it was impossible to comply, to wit: certified funds at full purge amount, albeit in violation of a 2010 superior court order, to be paid to an agency without legal authority to accept it;

14)  A competent jurist does not retain forensic orders in the wake of perjured “gmai.com” proof from the only witness supporting those orders strictly to continue a sadistic campaign of punishment against his public critic.

15)  A competent jurist does not retain forensic orders on double standards. Judge King frequents a tavern in Lowville, New York with his own children while enjoying cocktails that a barmaid has committed to memory. He has exhibited all sorts of absurd behavior.

16)  A competent jurist does not ignore every plea for simple phone contact by a father to his daughters over an 833 day period with sadistic satisfaction while an unfit millionaire substitute continues to cement a bond which has them exhibiting abnormal father hatred.

17)  A competent jurist does not issue serial rulings laced with sadistic disparagements of his critic to avenge accurate disclosures even in the wake of former veteran family judge and current Appellate Division Judge John Centra who emphasized that the real father had no record to support suspended child contact when issuing his 2013 stay order.

The members of the Kangaroo Corruption Commission (KCC) a/k/a New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct are as follows:

Joseph W. Belluck, chair (appointed by Cuomo)

Paul Harding, vice chair (appointed by Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb)

Rolando T. Acosta (appointed by former chief judge, also appointed by Cuomo)

Sylvia G. Ash (appointed by current Chief Judge Janet DeFiore, also appointed by Cuomo)

Joel Cohen (appointed by ex-Assembly Leader Sheldon Silver now in federal prison)

Jodie Corngold (appointed by Cuomo)

Richard D. Emery (appointed by Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins)

Thomas A. Klonick (former useless Commission chair appointed by former chief judge)

Richard A. Stoloff (appointed by ex-Senate leader recently convicted of federal crimes)

David A. Weinstein (appointed by Cuomo, related to Assembly Judiciary Committee Chair?)

Vacant   (politician Cuomo will name an “independent” person to this vacancy)

As I testified before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, this is a “window dressing” commission which should be dissolved like the others because it does more harm than good through its impotence, political influences and ultimate protection of corrupt judges. Such impotence causes victims of severe injustices to forego the filing of useless complaints, making the actual corruption far greater than the record truly shows. Within four months of my testimony on September 17, 2013, my daughters were seized by Dan King who finally disqualified himself this month after the colossal mess he made.

Fathers Demand Parental Equality at U.S. Supreme Court

 

Looking down on Congress and our Supreme Court in the distance, Abraham Lincoln has once again come to life . He is not resting in peace these days. His message: When I said that all men were created equal, I meant everyone, fathers too!”

Exactly five years after an oppressed father protested discrimination by burning himself alive on the steps of Keene County Family Court, four victimized fathers calmly walked up the steps of the United States Supreme Court to file a writ for parental equality.

Media throughout the beltway were discussing it, news releases were confirmed everywhere, and these four made history outside the halls of our nation’s highest court. And it’s high time. Give dads their due. We sacrifice in the line of duty every day for our children.

Whether it be law enforcement in Orlando, firemen headed into the towers on 9-11, or our military in foreign wars, we are sick and tired of the abuses inflicted upon us in divorce and family courts. We are tired of returning to anything but “equal justice” as promised on the top of the Supreme Court edifice.

These four professionals, a doctor, lawyer, dentist and engineer made their case at a news conference on the eve of Fathers Day. They are Dr. Mario Jimenez, M.D., Dr. Leon Koziol, J.D., Dr. Dan Pestana, DDS and John Bautista, BSME, MBA, sacrificing their professional standings by taking up this cause. They need your help.

Yes it’s Fathers Day again with those worn out stereotypes about manning up. And that’s exactly what these professionals did from New York, California, Florida and Virginia. They asked our government to man up to its responsibilities for equal rights. Being born male does not give our courts a power to denigrate our authority as equal parents under supreme laws.

While other traditionally discriminated groups have made great strides in achieving reform, fathers continue to be remanded by our courts to lower class parent status with all the oppression which comes with it. Fathers remain 85% of all parents paying support, nearly 100% of those sent to a debtor prison for delinquencies and even shot dead in the back by a traffic cop while fleeing unarmed from a support warrant (Walter Scott).

After Fathers Day a group from New York City has committed itself to a protest march from the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica to a business on Broad Street. Its theme for Leon’s sake: Our children are not for sale. If you know of an organization which should join the equality writ at the Supreme Court, time is of the essence. Please call Leon, its author and presenter at (315) 796-4000.

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.
