Extraordinary Book Features Human Side of Parent Alienation

Parent Alienation Victim Tamara Sweeney and Dr. Leon Koziol, her new book author in Binghamton, New York
By  Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Many loyal followers here at Leon Koziol.com have been misled by the notion that my support of shared parenting made me a fathers’ rights advocate opposed to mothers. Those who truly know my work recognize how wrong that assumption is. It’s the way our detractors profit from a corrupted court system, by pitting parents against one another. Children need both.

During my years as a practicing attorney, I saved many women from false charges and discrimination. In fact one such case led to the bias of my support court judge who was forced to step down from that earlier woman’s case. He then exacted revenge by staying on my support case and finding a violation.  I also was the lawyer for a former president of the National Organization for Women.

Good mothers support shared parenting even where equal time is impractical, for example due to career demands or distance. When fathers are encouraged and facilitated, children fare best in life. That much is supported by human history and expert studies. A good mother never asks a judge to incarcerate a father for back support. No amount of money justifies the criminalization of parenthood or a debtors’ prison.

This was a stand I took against my profession eight years ago which I am still fighting today. You will receive important news on that later this week. In the meantime, as many of you know, I am writing book manuscripts for those parents wishing to publish their court ordeals for posterity or reform’s sake. The opening chapter of my latest project is offered for your education and amazement below.

It’s about parent alienation and we are hoping to get contributions for its marketing phase upon publication this year. If you have a story you would like to have published, it’s no small undertaking and requires publishing expertise and court room experience of the kind I uniquely possess. Feel free to contact me personally for details and a cost estimate at (315) 796-4000. You can also help represent yourself or seek litigation alternatives in a court program offered at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

 

The Tamara Sweeney Story

 Chapter  1

The first time I saw Tamara Sweeney, it was at a hotel lounge in Binghamton, a small city on the New York-Pennsylvania border. The remarkable aspect of our meeting was not how hastily it had been arranged or how we drove two hours there from opposite directions. It was her captivating smile which seemed to bring energy to a collection of fatigued business people that had congregated at the end of a work day.

Outwardly, all indications were that she was a motivated woman with a sense of confidence, a person who knew what had to be done in any given situation even if she had to acclimate to new levels of competence on a moment’s notice. Behind that flare, however, I knew this was not the real Tamara. The person I knew from my readings was hopelessly immersed in a cauldron of pain and anguish concealed by layered walls of self-preservation.

Imagine yourself a loving mom who gave life to four children in five years, three boys and a girl; a parent, days filled with feedings, baths, runny noses, kissing and hugging. The number of calendar and diaper changes would confound any corporate executive. Then, suddenly, after so many promising years with their father in a dream home, these children are seized from this mom, prevented from having any contact and left without her regular guidance and affection.

That was the Tamara Sweeney I had read about in a voluminous court record, a mother who could not have imagined the level of cruelty inflicted by her own government residing in the family courts of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. She was not a criminal and despite my search of the record, I could find no evidence to justify the severe alienation she had suffered from her offspring. To the contrary, these children were her entire life.

As she approached, that incessant smile complemented the rest of her, a stunning lady which by all indications defied father time. She carried herself gracefully exuding everything genuine. Later she would boast photos of her family in diverse settings. As I gazed upon their similarly captivating faces, I could not help but conclude that a sort of Camelot had been underway in a pleasant valley community near Philadelphia, that city of brotherly love.

It was an idyllic setting without  the paparazzi. However that setting would shatter when a corrupt court system seized it, a commonplace occurrence in America today. I had seen my share of shocking ordeals, but this divorce crushed logic. Having saved the falsely accused, securing record recoveries for victims of government abuse and even managing to strike down a casino compact worth billions of dollars, this story would set precedent in the court of public opinion.

The worst of my professional experiences resided in divorce and family courts which I avoided with a plague. People separate for countless reasons but that should not translate into lucrative custody battles for lawyers. Tamara had solicited me not as a lawyer but as a writer, someone who could distill her complex case into a literary work that might capture the world, not as her smile had done for me, but to tell a story which might prevent others from falling into that same cauldron.

It would be a project which took proper aim against a court system that was destroying the very fabric of a nation. As I liked to describe it, divorce and family courts were the Hotel California of the legal profession: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. Resigned to her fate as a victim of a corrupted system, after exhausting civil recourse to the point of bankruptcy and homelessness, Tamara would nevertheless refuse to go quietly into the night.

No, no, hell no! I could envision her declaring. Come hell or high water, the world will know the horrific injustices inflicted upon a loving American mom. Lawyer reform and judicial accountability were high on her list of objectives, but towering over it was a fervent desire to be reunited with her babies. Unfortunately time was working against her as they approached adulthood with family court processes operating at the speed of a snail.

Competing against that process was a mother possessed by human nature. After all, is the umbilical cord ever truly cut between a loving mom and her offspring? We can put a man on the moon, split atoms, engage artificial intelligence and achieve vast breakthroughs in medicine but remain unable to tackle this extraordinary human phenomenon. It may well explain why our government is unwilling to extricate family courts from their twentieth century practices.

Those same practices made Tamara an ironic victim, swallowed whole by a gender biased system which women have been protecting for decades. Tamara was a “non-custodial parent,” a custody classification typically reserved for dads. She was not concerned about that aspect of the system. It was as if she had danced around it, the devil for years, never imagining how she could end up its prey. Instead she was obsessed with the symptoms and one in particular: Parent Alienation Syndrome or PAS.

PAS is the condition discovered and popularized by Dr. Richard Gardner three decades earlier which had yet to be recognized by the psychiatric profession or legal community. It was based on numerous cases involving parents who had suffered immense trauma from children rejecting their affection and very existence for no logical reason other than a spiteful parental counterpart. It remains a condition cultivated by lawyers anxious to pit parents against one another for profit.

American society is still unfamiliar with PAS, let alone in a position to embrace it as an epidemic. It is a single cause for health issues, moral dysfunction and social ills that have claimed more families than cancer. Indeed mass violence can be traced to this epidemic, one that finds its way into our schools, workplaces and homes. Of all the issues confronting our clergy today, few are more threatening to the viability of religion itself than this one.

However, if our government and regulated professions are unwilling to recognize it, there will be no cure any time soon. And the reason for that is the same as the explanation for tobacco, energy and drug industries. It’s all about the money. But here the cancer is eating away at the very souls of our children. PAS is the embodiment of evil depicted somewhat like it was in the film Devil’s Advocate, starring Al Pacino. The moral fiber of future generations is under siege in these courts.

Tamara’s objectives must be achieved if we are to stem this crisis. You will have to read on to know how and why, what it means to you and your loved ones. This story is about a jungle filled with primates in skirts and ties devoid of a civilized conscience. They pounce on unsuspecting parents and children for the primeval purpose of filling their bellies with modern day manna, the almighty buck. Shortsighted and self-serving, they blame their victims for the harm they cause.

Lawyers, psychologists, therapists, evaluators and former lawyers on the bench are among the predators anxious to destroy relationships which could be retained or salvaged through non-litigation alternatives. As a general observation, industrialists sell products, government sells services, businesses sell both, doctors sell advice and cures, psychiatrists sell therapy and medications, but lawyers sell controversies and promises.

Of all these stocks in trade, the last is most counter-productive to families. They do not belong in a forum created to protect our children. And when government makes it profitable for their participants to incite controversy, it is the worst kind of evil. Minor disputes erupt into major ones with the words of an unscrupulous lawyer adept at abusing the system for fee generating purposes. In the end, a protracted court battle yields irrevocable harm.

Laws have been drafted to incentivize conflict in these courts. The very structure for resolution is built upon artificially induced controversy and an unsupported foundation for distributing childrearing authority between superior and inferior parents. Shared parenting initiatives have failed time and again all across America due to a universal failure to invalidate the archaic system being protected. I have described it as the “Custodial Institution of Childrearing.”

If you are not yet convinced of the critical need for reform, consider the fact that there are more than 600,000 attorneys licensed in California and New York alone with as many candidates as there are practicing attorneys nationwide. There is no end in sight to this glut of lawyers entering the market, and the least qualified typically end up in family court. This is where apprentices learn their trade and marginal lawyers can instigate lucrative controversy to last an entire career.

The archaic process begets a host of forensic additions to the mix by request or court order, including law guardians and social workers, all in the business of dictating how our children are to be raised on vague, conflicting or utopian standards. It is job creation of the worst order, encouraging vulnerable children to hate one or both parents, destroying any notion of forgiveness and praising them for spying on their moms and dads toward a new world order of child control.

Accountability is as nonexistent as the number of malpractice cases arising in these tribunals. In the medical profession, a surgeon who performs needless operations for profit is discovered through an objective review process. In family court, when a lawyer performs a needless hearing for the same reason, there is no similar review, no real measure for competent performance. The all-encompassing child’s best interests can be satisfied by any half baked participant.

Making matters worse, parents learn too late that child alienation is a damage claim that cannot be recovered monetarily like other injuries. Hence there is no remedy for the child predator disguised in professional attire feeding on college funds, retirement plans and the very shelters of human beings until there is nothing left to consume. If you are a person who has not yet been harmed by this system, you pay for it in taxes, crime and productivity at the very least.

Tamara had no idea what she was getting into when she first retained a lawyer in April, 2012 to separate amicably with her husband of twelve years. Rick Cohen would certainly not advise her properly. As with most divorce lawyers, his goal was to generate as many fees as possible. His firm probably had a performance measure based on the number of billable hours he could orchestrate much like the federal government does for purposes of support enforcement funding.

Indeed everything was working against Tamara when she made that fateful call to his law office. Even her husband was enraged by that phone call when he learned of it. Still recoiling from the knowledge that she had entered into an extramarital relationship, he was pleading with and threatening her to call it off. Nevertheless he was served with divorce papers the following month. It was a regrettable by-product of escalating abuse in the homestead.

Years earlier, Tamara had been forced to compromise her role as primary care taker when her husband quit his lucrative position to start an on-line business. Revenue projections did not materialize, and before long the family homestead and finances were at risk. She then became a breadwinner only to learn that the boundaries which she had worked so hard to establish for her children were now in ruins. Unbearable conflicts escalated as a natural outgrowth.

When a mother verifies through proper testing that her seventh grade child is consuming alcohol and smoking marijuana, it is a shock of the worst kind. A responsible parent cannot and does not ignore the vital signs particularly as grades and social conduct tank as a predictable result. Her husband responded with more of the same, parties at their home Wednesday through Sunday and abuses so severe that Tamara found herself in a closet or locked in a bedroom afraid to come out.

Her teen boys emulated such abuses. Tamara was made out to be a disease in the homestead by an alienating parent who could not forgive let alone realize how his unrelenting anger could jeopardize crucial long term relationships. Soon it became necessary for mom to move out until the situation could stabilize. But this only harmed her custody position later on. It was the beginning of her ordeal with parent alienation and the end of the world as she knew it.

When I met Tamara in Binghamton four years later, she was a mother desperate to save the very lives of her children. She was a parent running recklessly into a burning building prepared to sacrifice herself if necessary. There were many things which amazed me about her dedication but one stood out even as I began preparations for this book. The scheduling of our first meeting had to be made around her daughter’s team event at school. Everything else took a back seat.

Days later, Tamara took a call from me while watching a ball game featuring her son. It wasn’t her presence at those events which fascinated me but that she continued to promote her children from a distance while under court orders to stay away over a two year period. The tactics used against her were the same as those inflicted upon separating parents everywhere. The idea was to shoe horn mom and dad into unequal custody roles so that child support could be justified.

This was the real Tamara Sweeney heading my way for the first time at a hotel lounge in Binghamton, New York. I had read her ordeal in substantial part. Volumes of court papers, photos and diaries sent to me the prior week. Too much to digest so early in the assignment, I was more eager to hear her story first hand, to listen intently for purposes of sizing her up, to study her facial expressions and reactions to a bevy of questions I was prepared to unload on her.

This would be best achieved in a relaxed setting, carefully but meticulously executed over a period of hours. I remained in awe over her unending smile after such a horrendous ordeal which was still ongoing. Dressed casually, blond hair feathered back to shoulder length and cosmetics applied sparingly, she angled her slender figure between a pair of table stools before arriving at my tight spot. We composed ourselves when nearby patrons made room for us.

“I was beginning to think you wouldn’t show after reading my stuff,” she opened with an embrace. “I got us a table over there in the dining area so we could be more private,” pointing over to a location by the window. “But this is okay if you like. I’m sure no one around here cares about our craziness,” she asserted jokingly but uncomfortably. Her smile expanded a bit as if it was even possible and her left arm was wrapped around a file that seemed ready to explode.

“No this is fine Timera, did I pronounce that right?” I answered, doing my best to compete with the noise and her pleasant demeanor. How did she manage it, I asked myself, wishing for the moment that we had made that move to her selected area.

“It’s alright, you said it like so many do. It’s actually Tamra, but I’ll accept either one. Not so picky you know.”

“The correct way sounds much better so I’ll stick with that. Are you hungry? Because I’m starved and ready to order.” I searched the crowded bar for service. “It was all I could do get out of Dodge before some phone call derailed our last minute meeting here. I haven’t eaten since breakfast.”

“Yeah thanks for that. I’m really not hungry but I might order something light to nibble on.” Anxious to get down to business, it wasn’t long before she moved past the perfunctory exchanges. “So how much of my material have you gotten through?”

“Enough Tamara, enough to get a decent impression of your nightmares. To be candid, it is an unbelievable story so far, and I’m not even close to an overriding theme. There’s so much going on like most divorces. But yours is an extraordinary one. I  have a lot of questions.”

“Good! I’m ready. Fire away.”

“No, not so fast. We just got here. Let’s have a drink, relax a bit, have a bite, and your cross examination will come. As I explained on the phone, I like to get to know the real person I’m writing about, not just the client. Your files do that in abundance. Let’s talk for awhile on the lighter side. Then when the time comes, it’ll occur naturally. This is not a lawsuit you know.”

“Thank God! You’re right,” she agreed with a sigh of relief.

I guided her to another table away from the noise and laughter. She then placed a large binder on a nearby stool, guarding it like a sheep dog over her flock. As she explained excitedly this morning, she was able to locate it after a desperate search. This binder contained a synopsis of her divorce and family history which a judge refused to review. Privately I concluded that it had not been properly offered. For me, however, it was a blessing in disguise, a fateful error of a robotic jurist meant precisely to become the book I was about to complete. Then I continued.

“You see I’ve changed my approach on this kind of assignment. Trust me, Tamra, it works. I’ll give you references. My last subject was a woman who engaged me with conflict and dictates regularly. She came across like one who could never be satisfied. There are only so many hours in a day, and if I was billing at lawyer rates, such books would never be possible.”

Tamara nodded in agreement. She knew my own ordeal after discovering my website during a parenting conference at our nation’s capital. Anyone writing her story would have to demonstrate a requisite level of expertise before she could entrust him with her sensitive files. They were years in the making, and I certainly understood her fears. That’s because I took a conscientious and long overdue stand against my own profession in these matters and was vilified on all fronts.

“This witch hunt which my profession did against me for exposing misconduct had the fate of permitting your book. And go figure, the lawyers in that witch hunt ended up getting fired by the court for falsifying their time sheets. So much for our standard-bearers of lawyer ethics. These are the same guys charged with a duty to correct overbilling practices. I don’t know about Pennsylvania but corruption in New York is a cottage industry.” I chuckled briefly.

Tamara was immediately engaged with enthusiasm over an experience she had already read about. Now she was made a part of it, joining my amusement to where her smile might reach both ears. “Oh no, once we dig in, you’ll find that it’s just as corrupt, maybe even worse in Montgomery County. Any day I’m expecting them to be exposed and come crashing down.”

The conversation was going better than expected. We were joined not only by common experiences but clicking as if we were telepathic. That’s what tends to happen when human beings have gone down similar emotional highways. We were getting more relaxed and committed to our joint goals with each sip of our drinks.

“After months of hard work,” I continued, “that woman is now a believer. I’ll play her last phone message if you like. She called her finished book ‘brilliant.’ It’s in the hands of a publisher.”

“That won’t be necessary. I’ve read your work since that parent conference two years ago. I’ve actually been targeting you for my book ever since. I know what I’m doing.”

I was sincerely impressed that Tamara had become committed to me for so long before her first phone inquiry only three weeks ago. It made me realize that my hard work might have to eclipse my last manuscript. That would be a tall order, but so far so good. It was like entering uncharted waters, an unexplored wilderness, a journey to the edge of humanity, all for a cause destined to impact future generations.

We talked into the night like schoolmates on a first date. Anyone observing this exchange would have no idea the horrific pressures we were hiding beneath our laughs and discourse. For the time being at least, this was wonderful. Our mutual pain had subsided. Moments that meant everything to each of us became merged through a sense of shared identity. But the lightheartedness soon graduated to our business at hand.

Later that night I would summarize our opening session as a contest over who could hide their pain better. Talking about it here so freely and so far away from our homes helped us open up. And boy did we open up. On and on we went until before you knew it, the crowd had dwindled to a few stragglers from a wedding reception in a nearby ball room. The bride was now snuggled up to the bar with her newlywed and the rest of the bridal party was taking pictures in the lobby.

“Come on let’s get a picture of us too,” Tamara offered with sudden enthusiasm. “I like photos. It helps me remember special events, and I’m feeling real good about this book now.” She reached for my arm and pulled me into the open. We searched for the ideal location with a view from an expansive window. The father of the bride was drafted for the photo op.

We ended our meeting shortly after that. To my surprise we had talked incessantly for over four hours, never expecting to become so energized along the way. She turned over some additional materials from her file after walking me through her binder, cautioning me again that it had become her life’s treasure and a major reason for our trips here. I was veritably impressed with its content. This was a mother who meant business, and I was not about to disappoint.

As I turned for the hotel exit for my trip back home, I took note of the newlyweds embracing at the bar. I felt compelled to give them some friendly advice of the kind I dismissed so many years ago. I mused for awhile but opted against it. After all, there are lifetime marriages of the kind I always admired. Then I walked out into the night, a rainy, miserable and cold one while glancing up briefly into a black foreboding sky. Perhaps a storm was on its way.

 

 

 

Anti-Corruption Rally Proposed in D.C. on June 19th

image (2)Proposed by the National League of Fathers, Inc. a rally in Washington is needed to send a message that we have had enough of the corruption of our parents and children in divorce and family courts. Yet another victim contacted us today after learning that his life threatening condition was traced to the abuses sustained in his divorce case.

It’s not the first time we’ve sponsored a rally in D.C. But numbers are required to make a real impact. You will not get justice typing on keyboards from the comfort of your homes, spending free time at bowling allies or pontificating at coffee shops. What Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have shown us is that the people have gotten sick of our establishment.

That includes these courts. Our children have been turned into a trillion dollar industry with caring parents as collateral damage. We must demand change now and become a pivotal force in this year’s elections. An Anti-Corruption rally is the answer. Your help is critical to make this happen. Contact us at (315) 380-3420 to get involved !

For more information, a highly compelling report was recently made public here at Leon Koziol.com and it has gotten record views. Readers have demanded this rally and we are responding with today’s announcement. However we are volunteers operating on donations, and your assistance is crucial for us to follow through.

Our report (Parenting Rights Institute) was submitted to select groups and government agencies on the subject of a crisis developing among families victimized by divorce and custody processes. It discloses widespread abuses in courts across America which are now at epidemic levels. It can be downloaded at the following link: https://www.scribd.com/doc/309595636/Custody-Court-Dysfunction

Introduction

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

No person or entity has ever been able to achieve a comprehensive study of the vast detriment which this archaic custody and support system has had upon our society. Any such effort would assuredly be stymied by the beneficiaries of a lucrative child control industry. However common sense dictates that our nation could be well served with sweeping reforms here in our least scrutinized branch of government. We can put a man on the moon, split atoms, engage artificial intelligence and achieve vast breakthroughs in medicine but remain unable to extricate family courts from their nineteenth century practices. This public initiative aims to do exactly that.

In recent decades, medical and psychiatric journals have identified various syndromes to explain diverse human illnesses. Post traumatic stress and parental alienation are examples limited to the symptoms of a far greater epidemic, a devastating silent killer depicted here as Custody Court Dysfunction. This report focuses not only on the symptomology of family suicides, homicides and psycho-somatic illness but the legal framework which produces the dysfunction. It seeks to establish a task force of legal, medical, social and religious experts to devise a joint remedy, to grow a movement that ends an alarming level of abuse caused by needless conflict and forensic referrals. I have described it as a trillion dollar operation akin to the tobacco and drug industries.

Typically studies are committed to non-legal experts to explore remedies for emerging social ills. Few reach the exclusivity of court operations that are highly protected from accountability. Indeed other professions benefit greatly from the aggravated harm created by these courts. In his book, After the Madness, former (convicted) Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York explains that judges are trained to think as gods. In United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011), a federal judge, Gary Sharpe, went so far as to discover a human gene without scientific support to sentence a man to a six year prison term. Reversed on appeal and removed from the case, he was cited for his omnipotence and damage to the reputation of our judiciary. The list goes on.

This report is drafted with personal experiences to lend credence and a sense of urgency to this public initiative. The text and footnotes alternate between first and third person usage so that the reader can better identify with the author as a parent victim and in his professional background. I am also seeking financial support behind a national organizing and speaking tour before impacted constituencies. These include veterans, military families, public safety officers, civil rights groups, family associations, chambers of commerce and high profile figures. This tour will focus on our two principal goals for bringing civility to America’s domestic relations courts:

1) Promotion of shared parenting laws in place of the antiquated custody scheme, and

2) Demand for transparency and accountability in a self regulated family court system.

About the Author

Leon R. Koziol, J.D. is a lawyer placement consultant for intellectual property firms and a civil rights advocate who practiced law in federal and state courts for more than 23 years. His achievements include legal precedent and six figure recoveries for victims of government abuse. All the while, he was self trained, generating a perfect record of acquittals in criminal jury cases. He received community service awards including dedication plaques on a new city courthouse.

Dr. Koziol’s civil rights work earned him interviews on the CBS Program 60 Minutes and front page of the New York Times, among other major media. A published book was discussed on CNN and his candidacy for United States Congress was a headline story in 2006. After years of complex litigation against high profile law firms, he secured final judgment in state Supreme Court invalidating the largest casino gaming compact in New York on constitutional grounds.

In education, a Juris Doctor degree was conferred by Northern Illinois University, College of Law with an award from the American Bar Association in State and Local Government. Leon received a Bachelor of Professional Studies degree from the State University of New York, and upon graduation, he joined the management team of a Fortune 500 manufacturer, later serving as a corporation counsel, school attorney and city councilman with a focus on risk management.

Various awards and scholarships round out his background in public service and government. Published achievements on-line include Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004)($333,820.32 jury verdict); Oneida Indian Nation v Oneida County, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000)(casino challenge-landowner rights) and Koziol v Hanna, 107 F. Supp. 2d 170 (NDNY 2000)(successful free speech challenge to mayoral gag order). His first thriller-romance novel, Voyage to Armageddon, was published in 2014 and is available at major bookseller sites.

As a trial attorney and public advocate, Mr. Koziol exposed official misconduct at all levels of government, making him a predictable target of retribution. When he turned his focus to abuses inflicted upon parents in family courts, the retributions escalated within his profession after more than two decades of unblemished practice. It compelled him to seek recourse before the New York Moreland Commission on Public Corruption .

PRI Report: Public Safety, Military Most Harmed in Family Court

honoring-soldiers-veterans-day-2-20110615

The Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) has released a cutting edge report which identifies a condition known as Custody Court Dysfunction. Based on years of legal research, more than two decades as a practicing attorney and interviews with family litigants, it was authored by Dr. Leon R. Koziol, founder and director of PRI. Among its alarming conclusions, military parents and public safety officers remain primary victims of this condition:

And so, while our federal government escalates its military involvement around the globe, soldiers are returning to empty homes, child alienation and felony support warrants. I was able to save the life of one such victim from attempted suicide at a parenting convention we sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009).

Father discrimination may be the convenient scapegoat for politicians seeking to advance themselves, but as President Calvin Coolidge is quoted: “A country which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” This message resonates as well with our domestic defenders. Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment under the law. Yet an unpublicized number of fathers became eternally separated from their children and families without any changes to these laws as construed and enforced by our courts.

In another excerpt, the report describes not only how public safety officers are victimized in custody determinations based on their line of duty but how those duties are compromised and subjected to increased risks:

A natural outcome of this history is lawlessness. Although examples abound throughout the country, their causes are highly suppressed in police and media reports. In my own small home town, a police investigator committed a murder-suicide upon his ex-spouse after leaving support court which had him reportedly living on $28 per week after all the deductions and asset executions.

Draconian enforcement practices lead to seizures of various licenses ultimately producing homeless victims. Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of the inflammatory protection orders issued. It left three children with no parents and city taxpayers responsible for a $2 million wrongful death pay-out, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011).

Kindly help us secure reform by supporting our work here at Parenting Rights Institute. We rely on donations to make such work possible. This report must be shared with persons or entities with resources to help us open offices in every state. Custody Court Dysfunction is a growing epidemic traced to PTSD, Parent Alienation Syndrome, moral decay, health care costs and productivity declines in the workplace.

Trump’s Juggernaut: You Heard it First Here at Leon Koziol.com


Trump Campaign Rally in Albany, New York attended by entire team here at Leon Koziol.com

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol, parent advocate

Last August we ran a story on the Megyn Kelly debacle where we described Donald Trump as a juggernaut for the presidential election. That’s when there were over 10 candidates and he was being attacked on all fronts.

Today his juggernaut proved true as he took the New York Primary Election by a landslide eclipsing even Hillary Clinton’s victory margin  by at least 10 percentage points by an unofficial count.

Donald Trump is our best hope for court reform. The corruption in our judicial branch of government has received no attention. With a growing epidemic in divorce and family courts, shared parenting can become the norm to benefit families, health care and American productivity.

Indeed, Hillary’s ally, Governor Andrew Cuomo, shut down the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption just as parent testimony was reporting widespread corruption in these courts.

Bernie Sanders Leading in one Poll Linked to Vermont Wall Proposal

index
“You’re no Barack Obama Hillary !”

By reporter Michael Fields

Yesterday we updated rumors of a wall that Hillary Clinton was proposing on New York’s border with Vermont. Today, on the eve of New York’s primary, she continued to deny the reports. However a recent poll showed that the wall issue has propelled Bernie Sanders to a lead among Democrat voters, particularly parents and grandparents.

On April 5, 2016, the New York Post ran a story suggesting that Hillary Clinton might as well build a wall on the Vermont border in light of her claims that New York’s gun and drug trafficking problems came from Vermont, the home state of her primary opponent Bernie Sanders. Yesterday it was learned that she may have a plan to do exactly that.

Fueled by the success of Donald Trump’s once ridiculed wall on Mexico, the Vermont wall was suggested at a closed door strategy session. It would span roughly 160 miles between Canada and Massachusetts, only a fraction of the length of Trump’s Wall. According to sources, the funding would come from casinos, the only growing industry in New York.

The proposal comes on the heels of Hillary’s thrashing by her Democrat primary opponent at the Battle of Brooklyn, the most recent debate which most observers agree was won resoundingly by Bernie Sanders. Reputable fact checkers had debunked her claims that New York’s gun and heroin problem was caused by drug lords in Vermont.

Hillary’s debunked claims, however, have caused voters to question her capacity to be president for all of our states and communities. According to one New Yorker contacted near the Vermont border, the two states have had a great relationship with family and friends that crossed that border for recreational, education and employment purposes.

“What a sleazy move,” remarked a fisherman from Plattsburgh, New York. “Just because Vermont is a small state does not mean she can just cut it off from the rest. What if I don’t vote for Hillary, does that mean my county or village will also be dumped on by her? Whatever happened to her It Takes a Village book? Whose village is she working for?”

Another set-back the same night made the Clinton campaign desperate for a rebound.  Transcripts belatedly released by the State Department to Judicial Watch, a government watchdog, revealed that Clinton had knowingly lied to the American people and our allies about the Benghazi attacks which imperiled our soldiers abroad.

In yet another set-back, Florida prosecutors threw out a complaint against Cory Lewandowski, campaign manager for Donald Trump. A woman reporter’s career was destroyed after feminist agitators influenced Michelle Fields to file a bogus battery charge strictly to derail Trump’s juggernaut on  the presidential election.

Contacted at a rally in Syracuse, Mr. Lewandowski was asked for his response to the latest development in the Clinton camp.

“Does she realize that most of Vermont’s border with her home state is under Lake Champlain. In some places it’s 400 feet deep. That would make the Hillary wall bigger than anything with Mexico.”

Also at the rally, Trump’s New York manager, Carl Palladino echoed those concerns.

“The obvious question I have about Hillary’s Wall is whose going to pay for it? Fellow Americans in Vermont? New York is already the most taxed state in America.”

Bernie Sanders, campaigning in Rome, Italy (not Rome, New York), had this to say in a skyped interview:

“Did she finally throw a tissy fit? All those drug traffickers in my little home state would simply drive around her wall through Massachusetts. Is she gonna cut off all of New England now?  Last time someone tried that was the British in 1777. By the way, you know their leader wants to bar Trump from campaigning in that country.”

Quick to escape New York less than a week before its primary, Hillary Clinton was contacted at a fundraising gala in California sponsored by oil sheikhs from Benghazi. Here is what she had to say about the campaign leak, reproduced (unedited) from a recorder:

“I thought I told you already, it’s lying Ted Cruz behind all this. I would never be so stupid as to propose a wall on the Vermont border, and I didn’t need you to correct me, Michelle,  about it being underwater. I once took a boat on Lake Champlain to Plattkill.”

Reporter: “You mean Plattsburgh, the place you just mentioned is in the Catskills south of there.”

Hillary: “Whatever, look I’m from Arkansas, not New York. I only went there to get elected president. Ted is right. We don’t like New York values where Bill and I come from, especially after Carmelo Anthony and the Syracuse Orange stole that basketball title from Kansas.”

Reporter: “Look I’m just trying to help out Hil, you’re sounding like an opportunist on anything that comes along. Not very presidential. Trump’s probably gonna say ‘You’re no Barack Obama’ if you get into a national debate. Your wall is not going over very well. Vermont is a state not a separate country like Mexico, and it’s looking like you really don’t know New York.”

Hillary: “Don’t go there Michelle, I know my history. Did you know that Vermont was not one of our original thirteen states? It was a foreign country like Canada. And how about all those carpetbaggers who came south after the Civil War. We didn’t appreciate them telling us how to run our own states. What’s wrong with a little reverse history?”

Reporter: “Well for starters, Hil, you claimed to cross the border without knowing that the real port of Plattsburgh was the turning point in the War of 1812. We beat the British navy there.”

Hillary (interrupting): “Who cares about any of that in California? Voters are lucky to remember yesterday. I should know as an expert politician and lawyer.  I fooled them in New York twice on the Senate race so I’m a shoe-in there.”

Reporter: “Well they’re going to raise questions about your wall now that it’s been leaked and you don’t wanna be raising Vermont as a foreign country. California and Texas were also separate countries once and…”

Hillary (interrupting again): “I know, I know, so was Hawaii but not recent enough to keep Obama out when I ran against him.”

Reporter: “And as for carpetbagging, isn’t that what you were doing with that village thing during Bill’s term, telling parents how to raise their children?”

Hillary: “Alright you got me there. No one’s going to expect me to know all these places and history trivia. Why anyone would want to live north or south of Westchester is beyond me too. Black flies and voters on CP time in either direction.”

Reporter: “You know, you’re lucky you didn’t use the ‘N’ word in that stupid skit with DeBlasio. What were you thinking Hil? This isn’t Arkansas and it sure ain’t Kansas. You’re lucky you escaped New York when you did.”

Hillary: “You’re one to talk Michelle. Here you are in a guy’s suit pretending to be a male reporter after that Lewinsky fiasco. You’re just another media liar out to make a name for herself. I don’t have time for this. I have more important people to talk to.”

Reporter: “You mean Lewandowski. Monica’s the other woman you destroyed. You’re the people who duped me into filing that bogus charge for political gain, not for any woman’s rights cause. After Breitbart fired me, no one would hire me. I was lucky to get this job with the most censored blog site in America.”

Hillary: “Sorry about that, really I am.  But just remember, this conversation is off the record. Damn, Michelle, what’s it gonna take before you people believe in anything I got to say?”

Reporter: “I think that’s what every voter in America is asking.”

Top Story: On Eve of Primary, Clinton Denies Vermont Wall Proposal

By reporter Michael Fields

Yesterday we reported breaking news that Hillary Clinton was pressing forward with a plan to build a wall on New York’s border with Vermont. Today, on the eve of New York’s primary, she continued to deny the reports. Due to its viral popularity, we are reproducing the story here for those of you who missed it.

New Book Underway Against Parental Alienation

images

By Dr.Leon R. Koziol

As our followers are aware, I offer professional writing services to those who wish to publish their court ordeals. Many are motivated to expose corruption, others to provide a biography for their children or reputations. Whatever the reason, I have been applying decades of trial and appellate experience in numerous courts to make such stories a reality.

Publishing a book is no easy task. Many claim a commitment to do so but never follow through. There are pitfalls when producing a manuscript and marketing it to a trustworthy publisher. There’s also a concern for defamation particularly when prominent people are being criticized. I successfully sued one publisher for incompetence. It received coverage as far away as London, England, and the company was forced to go out of business.

So do yourself a favor, get a manuscript and publishing process underway by doing it right. Contact me directly for an understanding of your objectives and a fee quote. I require supporting documents before starting the project, and it fares best if we get to know the subject matter personally. You can verify credentials by looking up my recently published novel, Voyage to Armageddon, available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Lulu.com.

Recently I completed an assignment in Hawaii for a woman victimized in divorce court. Her book is not yet released but it represents a phenomenal look at court corruption and intrigue backed by transcripts and official records. Currently I am engaged in a book project which will focus on severe parental alienation experienced by a mother in Pennsylvania.What an assignment!

You may have a similar or untold story you wish to share with the world or just your family and friends. It could lead to a documentary. Movies are typically based on books as you know. I can be reached directly at leonkoziol@gmail.com or (315) 796-4000. I am leaving you with an excerpt from a chapter of my recently completed book manuscript so you can get a feel for the possibilities.

Best regards,

Leon.

Excerpt from Book on Divorce Court Corruption, Chapter 25:

“Not bad, Leon, but you still haven’t answered my question.”

“Well we can name our project as a war on something. If these radicals and Washington bureaucrats like wars, that’s what we’ll give them, a war on corruption. It’s getting so bad in this country that the public seems to have just accepted it even in these courts. That’s where the corruption is supposed to get justice.”

“Alright, sounds good.”

There was a long respite from our dinner exchanges. We glanced around, mimicked a few lyrics from our entertainment and looked occasionally toward the endless ocean. Then she broke our silence. “You know when you fly out tomorrow, I’m really going to miss you.”

“I’m gonna miss you too, especially all those great breakfasts in the morning.” I laughed slightly.

Most of our issues were addressed and a plan of action was formulated to promote court reform in America’s divorce industry. It was focused on fund raising, growing an army of parental advocates on social media, a central website and demands for investigations under Title IV-D.

This was a movement designed to unite all others, to bring victims out of their foxholes so that justice and hope could grow in a meaningful way. We were also looking for criminal prosecutions of corrupt judges, a RICO action and accountability at the U.S. Justice Department. There was much more, and it was all contained in a master plan we thought about naming, “The War on Court Corruption.”

“Hey look at the moon, notice anything?” I asked. We both gazed up into the Pacific night sky.

“Yeah it’s bright white and nearly above us now.”

“But see that dark wall of clouds working its way toward it.”

“Yeah pretty ominous looking, the first I’ve seen since you got here three weeks ago.”

“You know most people are not aware that our moon is actually leaving us. Each year it gets farther away. Astronomers say that humanity will not survive when it gets far enough to disrupt that gravitational balance it creates with mother earth. It’s kind of like our parenting cause. We need our children as much as they need us. Is that a sign?”

“You know I never thought of it that way, but I love the analogy. I think I’ll keep it.”

We watched intently as the billowing clouds made their way between mother earth and her moon, creeping resolutely until a full moon became half, then a quarter. Finally it was gone.

 

Military and Law Enforcement Return to Oppressive Domestic Courts: Time For Action

untitled
Fathers’ Rights are everyone’s concern, a family concern if you care about a son, brother, lover or a dad.

Recently we’ve posted a feature regarding the court ratified censorship of civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, after exposing vast corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. As part of a broader network of parental advocates seeking overdue reforms and shared parenting, we need your personal and financial support to continue. Please share this post and promote our cause. Leon can be reached directly at (315) 796-4000.

Here is an excerpt from a brief that Leon filed recently with a federal appeals court in Manhattan. It helps explain why our children are being alienated and influenced to respect lawyers, strangers, social workers,even street thugs more than their own moms and dads, why violent crime, drug abuse, teen pregnancies and productivity declines can be traced to the seizures of traditional parental authority in these courts:

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

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

Accordingly support judges have been rendered inherently biased against all those classified under the inferior “non-custodial” label with or without justification. Such classifications are arbitrary, stigmatizing and institutional in countless cases, requiring otherwise cooperative parents to compete over their children.

Their infringement of a fundamental right to parent one’s offspring is easily replaced by childrearing plans and orders which retain more family oriented labels such as mother, father and parent, see i.e. Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Albany Fam. Ct. 2001) at fn. 1(veteran family judge declaring “custody” and “visitation” to be offensive terms in an antiquated system which brings out the worst in parents when children need their best).

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

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

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

Unsuspecting litigants are also exploited by an expanding bureaucracy under Title IV-D to finance welfare costs created by unrelated and irresponsible parents. The ones properly devoted to their children therefore shoulder an unjust burden merely because they reside separately from their partners. These support judges engage in highly abused fictions such as “imputed income” to raise obligations beyond realistic capacities.

There is no express provision for shared parenting under the federal entitlement statute, and the regulatory scheme has replaced the child’s needs with “way of life” standards to elevate support even further. It has removed critical discretion from proper decision makers with outcomes that shock the conscience, see fn 3 and 4.

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

And here is a re-production of our feature post this past week in case you missed it.

Okay so we’re not Breitbart or Infowars, we’re just an expanding blog site known as Leon Koziol.com dedicated to parental rights. That puts us with mainstream social media. As Chief Justice John Roberts declared in Snyder v Phelps, speech and press must be “robust” in any self-governing nation.

But we weren’t picketing against gay military as they were in that case. We were promoting all military who return from foreign wars only to experience more oppression in divorce and family courts. That made our third branch of government the subject of our public criticisms.

It’s an epidemic captured by Second Class Citizen.Org in Purple Heart’s Final Beat. We’re part of a loose network of advocates seeking vital reforms. That makes all of us bloggers important to our nation’s politics because the divorce epidemic has received sparse coverage by other media.

Today more than ever, we are victims of a powerful bureaucracy seeking to control every facet of our liberties. Families are the last bastion. Accordingly the people rely on secondary media for information and protection. It may be our final frontier before the machines take over.

When major media is censored, they resort to our courts for protection as they should. These forums were created by the people to be the primary guardians of our constitutional rights. But what if the courts are the ones doing the censoring? Where do those victims go for protection?

Welcome to Leon Koziol.com, the most court-censored blog site in America. It started innocently enough, a loving dad and attorney seeking to spend more time with his daughters. He went against his profession for turning our children into a trillion dollar industry.

And boy did they retaliate. This site was offered to fight back, and since its inception, we’ve exposed court corruption like toxic spills from a chemical plant. With each post, public forum or court filing, judges and spineless lawyers acted to extinguish our protected activity.

The Times, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Fox News, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN are some of the major media seeking relief in our courts whenever they are censored. Their publishers, editors and reporters are never seized of their children, livelihoods and homes as a punishment.

Secondary media are not so fortunate. They lack real influence. But what we do have is an army of free service providers so the big guys can have something worth reporting. Here, because the courts were targeted, we became the most censored news site in America. Now for some proof:

On November 25, 2015, a state court gag order was issued against this site. It was so expansive that its details here could implicate a contempt citation and imprisonment;

In June, 2015, a disciplinary hearing was opened to the public for the first time on Leon’s request to address a law license suspension caused by an insider fired from his office in 2009. That insider was not convicted for her crimes until 2016 after damage was done. Hence it could not be used sooner to defend against a 2010 suspension;https://leonkozioljd.wordpress.com/2016/02/26/finally-veronica-donahue-to-be-sentenced-for-felony-forgeries-join-us-for-justice/

The ethics lawyers in the witch hunt against Leon were fired for falsifying their time sheets by the same court which suspended Leon. That fact was used to resist charges of inadequate insider supervision which Leon then applied to the judges before him regarding their own ethics staff. No public charges were ever brought against them;

The 2015 hearing was video recorded by Divorce Corp because of a You-Tube interview with Leon which it publicized in June, 2015 on the subject of child support corruption. This publication caused Leon to be censored at a family law reform convention at our nation’s capital in November, 2014 sponsored by the same entity;

On April 8, 2014, the state’s Committee on Professional Standards issued a report opposing reinstatement of Leon’s law license. It cited and attached seven blog posts out of more than 200 as offensive in content with no ethics charges ever brought;

One of the cited blog posts consisted of Leon’s 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption regarding fabricated college degrees found by judges. It cannot be detailed here due to the gag order. Another post was merely a dedication to Leon’s recently departed mother, adding a sadistic flavor to it all;

• On May 22, 2013 at a closed hearing, ethics lawyers for the Committee on Professional Standards declared to a court panel that they would oppose reinstatement of Leon’s law license as long as he continued his public criticisms of judges. None was specified or prosecuted while “anonymous” complaints on other subjects were;

The criticisms included a civil rights forum sponsored by Leon on January 19, 2010 featuring parent testimony for a report to the Justice Department. It was monitored by divorce lawyers. The later fired ethics lawyers asked Leon to explain why he did not introduce himself as a “suspended lawyer” prior to his first ever suspension.

• On January 9, 2008, Leon argued his first appeal challenging a lucrative system of custody classifications which forced parents to fight over their offspring. It was before a court which also appointed ethics committees. One member was his ex-spouse’s divorce lawyer. On the same day, an ethics prosecution was opened for the very first time against Leon after more than two decades of unblemished practice;

• On October 8, 2008, a divorce judge ruled that Leon’s support obligations under that challenged custody law were proper under Title IV-D (Child Support Standards Act). That meant that the judges and lawyers who disrupted the parents’ 2006 agreements did so for no good reason other than lucrative parental conflict. A violation was nonetheless filed to cause another basis for suspending Leon’s law license. Those details are also omitted here due to the gag order.

This is only a small sampling of Leon’s ordeal and punishments for protecting fellow parents (and others who cannot be mentioned here due to the gag order). None of it has ever been disproved or even denied, and this is not the first time Leon sacrificed himself for the people and their rights under the First Amendment.

As chief (corporation) counsel for an upstate New York city, he gave up his post and successfully sued a mayor in federal court for a gag order on public employees. You can look it up at Koziol v Hanna, 107 F. Supp.2d 170 (NDNY 2000)(supported by federal appeals court in Manhattan). On October 9, 2015, the same federal court issued an anti-filing order against Leon.

We continue to fight this battle on principle and for those who cannot be mentioned here. Leon is also fighting for parents, families and children everywhere.

Courts Extinguishing Parental Rights Through Censorship

Okay so we’re not Breitbart or Infowars, we’re just an expanding blog site known as Leon Koziol.com dedicated to parental rights. That puts us with mainstream social media. As Chief Justice John Roberts declared in Snyder v Phelps, speech and press must be “robust” in any self-governing nation.

But we weren’t picketing against gay military as they were in that case. We were promoting all military who return from foreign wars only to experience more oppression in divorce and family courts. That made our third branch of government the subject of our public criticisms.

It’s an epidemic captured by Second Class Citizen.Org in Purple Heart’s Final Beat. We’re part of a loose network of advocates seeking vital reforms. That makes all of us bloggers important to our nation’s politics because the divorce epidemic has received sparse coverage by other media.

Today more than ever, we are victims of a powerful bureaucracy seeking to control every facet of our liberties. Families are the last bastion. Accordingly the people rely on secondary media for information and protection. It may be our final frontier before the machines take over.

When major media is censored, they resort to our courts for protection as they should. These forums were created by the people to be the primary guardians of our constitutional rights. But what if the courts are the ones doing the censoring? Where do those victims go for protection?

Welcome to Leon Koziol.com, the most court-censored blog site in America. It started innocently enough, a loving dad and attorney seeking to spend more time with his daughters. He went against his profession for turning our children into a trillion dollar industry.

And boy did they retaliate. This site was offered to fight back, and since its inception, we’ve exposed court corruption like toxic spills from a chemical plant. With each post, public forum or court filing, judges and spineless lawyers acted to extinguish our protected activity.

The Times, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Fox News, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN are some of the major media seeking relief in our courts whenever they are censored. Their publishers, editors and reporters are never seized of their children, livelihoods and homes as a punishment.

Secondary media are not so fortunate. They lack real influence. But what we do have is an army of free service providers so the big guys can have something worth reporting. Here, because the courts were targeted, we became the most censored news site in America. Now for some proof:

On November 25, 2015, a state court gag order was issued against this site. It was so expansive that its details here could implicate a contempt citation and imprisonment;

In June, 2015, a disciplinary hearing was opened to the public for the first time on Leon’s request to address a law license suspension caused by an insider fired from his office in 2009. That insider was not convicted for her crimes until 2016 after damage was done. Hence it could not be used sooner to defend against a 2010 suspension;https://leonkozioljd.wordpress.com/2016/02/26/finally-veronica-donahue-to-be-sentenced-for-felony-forgeries-join-us-for-justice/

The ethics lawyers in the witch hunt against Leon were fired for falsifying their time sheets by the same court which suspended Leon. That fact was used to resist charges of inadequate insider supervision which Leon then applied to the judges before him regarding their own ethics staff. No public charges were ever brought against them;

The 2015 hearing was video recorded by Divorce Corp because of a You-Tube interview with Leon which it publicized in June, 2015 on the subject of child support corruption. This publication caused Leon to be censored at a family law reform convention at our nation’s capital in November, 2014 sponsored by the same entity;

On April 8, 2014, the state’s Committee on Professional Standards issued a report opposing reinstatement of Leon’s law license. It cited and attached seven blog posts out of more than 200 as offensive in content with no ethics charges ever brought;

One of the cited blog posts consisted of Leon’s 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption regarding fabricated college degrees found by judges. It cannot be detailed here due to the gag order. Another post was merely a dedication to Leon’s recently departed mother, adding a sadistic flavor to it all;

• On May 22, 2013 at a closed hearing, ethics lawyers for the Committee on Professional Standards declared to a court panel that they would oppose reinstatement of Leon’s law license as long as he continued his public criticisms of judges. None was specified or prosecuted while “anonymous” complaints on other subjects were;

The criticisms included a civil rights forum sponsored by Leon on January 19, 2010 featuring parent testimony for a report to the Justice Department. It was monitored by divorce lawyers. The later fired ethics lawyers asked Leon to explain why he did not introduce himself as a “suspended lawyer” prior to his first ever suspension.

• On January 9, 2008, Leon argued his first appeal challenging a lucrative system of custody classifications which forced parents to fight over their offspring. It was before a court which also appointed ethics committees. One member was his ex-spouse’s divorce lawyer. On the same day, an ethics prosecution was opened for the very first time against Leon after more than two decades of unblemished practice;

• On October 8, 2008, a divorce judge ruled that Leon’s support obligations under that challenged custody law were proper under Title IV-D (Child Support Standards Act). That meant that the judges and lawyers who disrupted the parents’ 2006 agreements did so for no good reason other than lucrative parental conflict. A violation was nonetheless filed to cause another basis for suspending Leon’s law license. Those details are also omitted here due to the gag order.

This is only a small sampling of Leon’s ordeal and punishments for protecting fellow parents (and others who cannot be mentioned here due to the gag order). None of it has ever been disproved or even denied, and this is not the first time Leon sacrificed himself for the people and their rights under the First Amendment.

As chief (corporation) counsel for an upstate New York city, he gave up his post and successfully sued a mayor in federal court for a gag order on public employees. You can look it up at Koziol v Hanna, 107 F. Supp.2d 170 (NDNY 2000)(supported by federal appeals court in Manhattan). On October 9, 2015, the same federal court issued an anti-filing order against Leon.

We continue to fight this battle on principle and for those who cannot be mentioned here. Leon is also fighting for parents, families and children everywhere. But he has been deprived his livelihood for more than six years while a local lawyer convicted of tax fraud on $2 million in client income was never denied his law license even while serving time in prison.
