Attorney Whistleblower Exposes Unprecedented Retaliation for Documentary Purposes

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Mainstream and secondary news documentaries focus highly on criminal matters. But in a recent flurry of blog site postings a judicial whistleblower with over thirty years of litigation experience exposes widespread corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. The retaliation he endured from judges and ethics lawyers was unprecedented, and his 12-year ordeal is now ripe for a shocking documentary. The postings that summarize that ordeal are found at the following links:

  1. Widespread dysfunction, a pandemic and parent alienation have combined to create a perfect storm
  2. Why is judicial accountability so crucial to Democracy?
  3. Say YES TO THE MESS? Courts built to dispense justice are being abused for profit.
  4. Kill a parent with a gun or prefer a toxic family court instead: the realities of a growing epidemic
  5. Hospitalized dad gets no calls from his daughters: the price paid by a judicial whistleblower

We are living in an evil society today. This pandemic may be a wake-up call to those who erase their parents, those who continue to sadistically harm others and those who upend the moral fiber of a free society with greed and self love. The coronavirus has derailed graduations, college life and career aspirations which may be a punishment for such evil. It warrants a fresh look at our society and the government which now dominates it. Help us make that documentary a reality by re-publishing this post. Your own ordeal may be included.

Say YES TO THE MESS? Courts built to dispense justice are being abused for profit.

ABOVE: These two dedication plaques on the lobby wall of a city courthouse commemorate the efforts of officials who came together to build a public forum for dispensing justice. Long time civil rights attorney Leon Koziol was instrumental in two capacities. As an elected city councilman, he secure a majority vote for construction funding after years of indecision by earlier council members. He then participated in dedication ceremonies when the courthouse was opened years later as the city’s corporation counsel. New York’s chief judge presided. Ironically a later judge of this city court, Gerald Popeo, was assigned to Attorney Koziol’s family court matters in 2017 to avenge a public censure against that judge which included racist commentary and physical threats from the bench.

Attorney Koziol’s career successes, exemplified by these courthouse plaques, would make any daughter proud. But they were destroyed when a deranged mother, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, made a single call to an unethical divorce lawyer in 2006. He influenced her to start a court battle against this dedicated dad using his daughters and law license as ransom. It escalated to the present day. The increased child support she demanded was never awarded to her. Instead the monthly amounts agreed upon prior to lawyer involvement were retained in a 2008 support order that remains the same today. It was deemed fair and compliant with federal and state support laws. But by then, the damage was done.

Twelve (12) years of targeting by lawyers and government agents in retaliation for my public stand against family court corruption finally took its toll when I was admitted to the emergency room on December 22, 2020. During my four week stay at the hospital, I learned that another support violation petition had been filed against me by “custodial parent” and mother of my daughters, Kelly Hawse-Koziol despite having my earnings capacity destroyed by draconian family court practices. I also learned that she had stalked another millionaire father replacement after several earlier failures. She was finally getting married a second time.

Rather than direct our girls to a simple phone call to their only dad in the hospital, the soon-to-be Kelly Hawse-Usherwood was apparently busy competing with brides half her age in a “Say Yes to the Dress” competition in New York City. In another world free of court conflict I would have wished her luck and congratulated the new union. But unfortunately the better title for this one would be “Say Yes to the Mess” caused by greed, envy and downright stupidity. This website chronicles over ten years of parent controversy that destroyed everything good about a formerly cooperative childrearing environment.

Had Kelly Hawse-Koziol simply left me alone, our daughters would be enjoying an environment of hope, stability and happiness far greater than the mess that is rampant in their lives today. The psychotic brainwashing and parent alienation she inflicted were off the charts and sadistically facilitated by a so-called “family” court bent on punishing a judicial whistleblower. What rational daughter would ignore their own father, one that not only made her existence possible, but sacrificed everything to remain a part of her life against all odds? How could a model father-daughter relationship be erased from existence after years of wonderful interactions?

Beyond that, how could any new partner of such an evil mom not see how he could become a future victim? A single argument with this woman could easily erupt into a domestic violence call that would require the arrest of Lou Usherwood regardless of his innocence under the current VAWA laws. A successful businessman could have his hard earned reputation irreparably destroyed overnight. There is precedent here in my ordeal. And how is it that a father himself cannot see a serious problem in the situation he is inheriting?

I never asked for the anonymous letters from within my daughters’ school district that warned of a Lou Usherwood playing substitute dad for my daughters. But they cannot be ignored in light of the severe alienation that has the only father here without a phone call from his girls on Christmas and New Year’s Day while hospitalized. Those girls would want for nothing today had Kelly Hawse-Koziol not committed perjury time and again to destroy a lucrative law practice. All her family offense petitions and protection orders were thrown out for lack of evidence over the years, yet nothing was done to hold her accountable for the damage she caused.

My ordeal is the quintessential example of court corruption which begs for a judicial ethics investigation and more. And I am far from isolated. Indeed divorce and family court corruption is common among countless cases being covered up today. There remains a serious lack of accountability for lawyers and judges who orchestrate lucrative and needless controversy among parents and families in these courts.

To be sure, during my reform efforts across the country I was hired to investigate many horrific cases. They include a doctor in Manhattan who spent over $5 million in lawyer fees in a divorce that nevertheless cost him access to his three children, a university professor with a PhD from Yale who spent over $2 million in a divorce with no custody or support issue because his three children were adults at the time, and a stay-at-home mother who successfully raised four children to maturity only to be accosted by them after divorce with the most vulgar of language.

I have seen the evidence first hand and the cases are so widespread that an investigation by the Justice Department is long overdue. Federal Title IV-D funding is being abused on an escalating scale to separate good parents from their children while government priorities remain misplaced on protecting illegal aliens and criminals at our borders. It is a cause championed during the three day Parent March on Washington which I sponsored in 2019.

Help me secure justice and accountability for all victims of this growing epidemic. Let not my sacrifices be in vain.

Kill a parent with a gun or prefer a toxic family court instead: the realities of a growing epidemic

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

After more than thirty years litigating in federal, state and appellate courts, I gained valuable insights on the widespread corruption occurring to parents, children and families in our nation’s domestic relations courts. As a civil rights trial attorney, I won numerous awards for victims of government abuse, set legal precedent for many of those victims, secured a restraining order on a $30 million high school project right out of law school, and even won a judgment in New York Supreme Court invalidating a billion dollar casino compact on constitutional grounds.

Today, after taking a stand against corruption in divorce and family courts, I am unable to get a simple order giving me access to my daughters despite no finding of unfit parenting or even an accusation of abuse. My court filings are suddenly “rambling, vitriolic or frivolous,” my unblemished professional record over 23 years suddenly unethical. It’s a classic John Grisham story but with no fiction attached, an innocence project awaiting fulfillment, and a potential martyrdom that I never asked for. It remains a vital cause impacting every aspect of modern day life.

Over the years I had occasion to witness or investigate needless deaths and human carnage in divorce and family courts across the country. Thomas Ball went so far as to burn himself alive in front of a family court in Keene County, New Hampshire to protest draconian enforcement practices relating to child protection, yet little media attention was given to this horrific event. Imagine if an African-American mother did the same to protest domestic violence.

I addressed national media at the 2015 funeral of Walter Scott, an unarmed black father fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop in South Carolina. He was shot dead five times in the back by a white cop. Among the black lives news reports, the Walter Scott murder continues to get the least attention despite an argument that family courts are now killing for money. Had this horrific event not been captured by a concealed by-stander on his i-phone, no one would have believed the cop setting an object on the “suspect’s” body to make it appear that it was an act of self-defense.

And the list goes on: a deranged mother who dismembered her two year old daughter rather than give her up to a custody order, veterans committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day with no study that tracks the number relating to family court, and the harm to worker productivity and health costs due to these recurring, lucrative court proceedings. Many victims are forced to give up parenting rights to avoid a debtor’s prison for so-called “child support” that lacks accountability. They quietly fade away to a death caused by grief, stress and depression. One such parent, Michael Brancaccio, suffered such an outcome only three months ago.

On tonight’s conference call, one mother expressed sympathy for my ordeal with the question of whether anyone can overcome a family court lobby that is so powerful. The answer lies in our collective resolve in a nationwide crusade for justice such as the Parent March on Washington which I sponsored in 2019. It would include lobbying efforts in Congress for a reform of Title IV-D funding and an investigation by the Justice Department. This will require large scale funding, but there are wealthy victims who can be contacted for this purpose.

As irony would have it, I testified at Governor Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013 which has relevance to this week’s calls for nursing home accountability. There I exposed family court judges who were fabricating evidence and engaging in judicial misconduct. It received widespread publicity. Three months later I was deprived all contact with my daughters based on more fabrications by Kelly Hawse-Koziol. Desperate to replace me with a wealthy, childless substitute, she acted without conscience to destroy something that was so precious and promising.

Hospitalized Dad gets no calls from his Daughters: The price paid by a Whistleblower

Popular Video on Parent Alienation produced jointly by a mother and father victim

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

FYI to all my regular followers across the country: I have been MIA for the past two months due to my admission to the emergency room on December 22, 2020. As a judicial whistleblower who took a stand against the corruption of parents and children in America’s divorce and family courts, I was subjected to an escalating level of retaliation over a twelve year period. Had it been one or two government persecutors over a short term, most human beings could have withstood the onslaught, but in my case, I was challenging a service providers gold mine, hence the targeting of me on multiple fronts was severe, relentless and without conscience. The combined stress, anxiety and daily fear of orchestrated incarceration finally took its toll with an early diagnosis that was not good.

That diagnosis was communicated to my daughters through e-mail (my only provided form of contact) and their “custodial parent” Kelly Hawse-Koziol. I did not expect that a dedicated father, never found to be unfit or even accused of abuse, could be denied so much as a phone call while hospitalized for more than four weeks. But my daughters had been so alienated and brainwashed with family court’s encouragement that no call or expression of concern was given to me on Christmas, New Year’s Day or any day since. Meanwhile our government remains committed to preventing parent-child separations involving illegal aliens at our borders.

Parent alienation among legitimate American citizens continues to escalate without any accountability whatsoever, and those with sufficient qualification to expose this growing epidemic are targeted and persecuted to extinction to protect a trillion dollar industry. Like the tobacco, drug and chemical industries, the lobby groups that protect family court corruption have no regard for the consequences of their actions, their false advertising and their profit motive. You can murder a person with a single gun shot or you can thrust upon him a toxic environment and accomplish the same outcome.

In my case, the latter was all but fully executed. Beyond the corrupt system which facilitated it, this begs the question, what kind of “mother” brainwashes her offspring to the extreme of erasing their dad entirely from their lives? Isn’t this the real crime deserving of a prison term? Instead the facilitators and profiteers are more focused on jailing the so-called “non-custodial parent” for “child support” whose income producing capacity has been removed through draconian collection practices. These practices earn family courts billions of dollars in federal Title IV-D kick-backs based on the number and size of support orders satisfied by a bevy of government drones.

It’s the “”elephant in the courtroom” with anything but the “best interests of the child” as a guidepost or justification. Today’s post (or “summation” of crimes against humanity) has been provided in countless reports, news conferences and parent rallies over the years, sponsored by me as the proper form of non-violent protest. But here you have the unfortunate outcome of such valiant efforts shared by fellow reformers across the country. I remain committed to this cause and predictions of mine coming true with each passing year.

Among my efforts is a tell-all book which will hopefully survive my presence and carry on with the needed posterity to achieve meaningful reform and true justice for victimized families. I will return to our weekly Thursday conference calls beginning tonight, February 18, 2021, 7pm ET, and God-willing, a renewed program for uniting good moms and dads behind this vital cause.

To illustrate how evil the system has become, this so-called “custodial parent,” Kelly Hawse-Koziol, soon to become Kelly Hawse-Usherwood (more on that later) managed the audacity of filing another support violation petition for $40,000 during the time of my hospitalization. She did this not for any financial need, having received a quarter million dollars in tax-free support to date, but to force my abandonment of parental rights in favor of the several millionaire replacements she has stalked over the years. Even prison inmates get visits and calls from their children through voluntary acts or court orders.

How did my ordeal become so inhumane in comparison, a veritable John Grisham story that bears no fiction? Read all about it in my soon to be published and updated book, Satan’s Docket. Your contributions on this site,, would be very much appreciated to offset skyrocketing medical bills and economic losses caused by my unprecedented stand against a corrupt divorce and family court system. You may also contact me directly at or (315) 796-4000.

While missing children and child abductions receive top priority in society, parental alienation continues to be ignored despite comparable sufferings. It is all part of a corrupted and antiquated child custody system that lawyers have exploited for profit and courts have allowed so as to maximize incentive funds under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. Despite a Parent March on Washington in 2019, a lobby initiative the same year, conferences in Congress, United Nations and good government commissions, this growing epidemic is a cause for increased domestic violence, needless clashes with law enforcement and murder-suicides.

I have been at the leading edge of reform efforts as a judicial whistle blower exposing the related tragedies across America. As a consequence, I was targeted as a civil rights attorney and persecuted as a parent. In an up coming book, I will detail how parental alienation is cultivated and weaponized against the falsely accused, particularly those who stand up to the horrors of this epidemic. Every severe case of parental alienation should be accompanied by a judicial “amber alert” with jail terms and punishments for the perpetrators on a level higher than money debts known as child support.

This is a silent epidemic that is eating away at the very fabric of our nation, our family values, traditions and parent-child relations. The blockbuster movies of today that receive some of the highest acclaim are those that feature aggrieved dads who take the law into their own hands when the system fails them. They include Taken I & II starring Liam Niesen, Rambo Last Blood starring Sylvester Stallone, Death Wish starring Bruce Willis, Patriot starring Mel Gibson, Stolen starring Nicholas Cage, Home Front starring Jason Straham and many more.

Indeed it’s hard to find an action movie star who has not had a film of his own focused on the protection of his daughters from harm’s way. Unfortunately in the real world, such fathers are denigrated in ways unprecedented in human history. On television sit-coms and law enforcement programs they are typically characterized as incompetent, uncaring and violent. As a result we see a break down in society on all fronts, from our schools to the riots in our streets. Drug related violence is at an all time high. And despite all this, our nation’s divorce and family courts continue to push good dads out of their children’s lives.

Another loving dad, age 46, dies from grief over losing his little girl to child support

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

It’s hard for me to write this post. I’ve written many over the past 10 years since this family court blog site was started, but this dad I knew well as a former client, campaign worker and reform assistant.

Michael Brancaccio, age 46, died on October 11, 2020. I learned of it recently, and after contacting family members confirmed what I suspected as a primary cause for his death. So I decided to report what I knew about his shocking ordeal at the hands of a corrupt family court system with a goal of starting a donor fund for his little girl Bella.

Yes I’ve reported on stories about children who died needlessly, veterans committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day, many as a result of needless custody battles, and unsuspecting parents converted into pure evil, all because of an antiquated, adversarial and lucrative system that covers up the daily carnage in communities across America.

It’s an epidemic that no presidential candidate has touched as of Election Day 2020 (today). This is explained by the old adage “follow the money,” service fees and federal funds generated by the number and size of child support orders issued and satisfied on an annual basis. The kick-backs to these courts under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act amount to billions of dollars each year. It’s a well kept secret that I have been exposing which resulted in retributions to my professional career and family life beyond anything I could have imagined.

So it should be no surprise that another dad has succumbed to this corrupt system. I hadn’t heard from Michael in years until one day in 2014 when he called me in a frenzy over a six month jail term he was facing before Family Judge Daniel King in Lewis County, New York (we have exposed this sadistic judge in many blog posts between 2013 and 2016). His volatile threat to throw a human being into an animal cage was based on Mike’s support arrears inflated by an evidentiary fiction known as “imputed income.”

Judges have created this fiction (support orders based on prior employment levels) to maximize federal performance grants under Title IV-D. In Mike’s case the amounts varied between a few thousand to as much as $12,000 depending on the jobs that he could hold. I was in Paris at the time seeking assistance from international organizations to shed light on this epidemic in America that was causing untold human rights violations. I was unable to assist Mike as his former attorney due to those retributions but would never have allowed this system to persecute him as it did.

He was eventually arrested on a child support warrant issued by Judge Daniel King and committed to the maximum term of six months. Mike toughed it out, believing that he could somehow help expose the corruption by example. However as he explained it, the time in his cage was aggravated by violent criminals who were being released with less time served. He also believed strongly that he was being targeted adversely as an outsider based on his religion and ethnic origin. On his release he fell into immense despair. Jobless, hopeless and facing more family court petitions by the mother of his child, he was hospitalized for organ failure and nearly died in 2015.

During the next support violation proceeding, he was threatened with a year in Lewis County Jail. Although six months is the legal maximum, Judge King and the support magistrate were able to treat two petitions separately to rationalize such an extreme punishment. This occurred despite his near death experience.

Faced with a never ending series of jail terms, Mike reluctantly gave in to a settlement that had him surrendering all parenting rights regarding his daughter Bella, age seven at the time, to the “custodial parent.” Ashley was her name and she quickly changed the last name of the child to match that of her husband. This was undoubtedly her objective all along using child support as the vehicle. It is also a common occurrence in family courts across America, substitute parent by extortion.

Having overheard many phone chats between daddy and his little girl, I knew that Mike’s decision was heart-wrenching, but family members urged it as a matter of life or death. That is the way family court ends lives and parent-child relationships without logic or remorse of any kind. The value of life: a few thousand dollars or a hundred thousand dollars. It did not matter as long as these judges could advance their careers through support performance evaluations (Title IV-D).

I lost contact with Mike after that, lamenting that I could not do more for him, but when I learned of his premature death, I confirmed with is mother that he had nothing left to live for. He died of natural causes aggravated by the many years of stress he endured in child support court. When his funeral services got underway, Bella’s mother (“custodial parent”) brought Mike’s little girl to her dad’s “visitation,” not the family court kind, but the final one. As I heard it told, upon seeing her dad unresponsive, she cried uncontrollably, at one point asking aloud: “was this because of all the court stuff mom?”

I cannot imagine the horrific experience of this little girl whose upbeat voice I heard many times during excited phone chats with her one and only dad. I cannot imagine the pain of Mike’s other children and their moms that he adored despite the conflicts that all families endure. I cannot imagine what kind of evil enters into the souls of these money seeking parents bent on revenge or ulterior motive. It begs the question: what is a human life worth anymore? What kind of society will Bella and her siblings be facing?

In my own tortured world, the “custodial parent” Kelly Hawse-Koziol has succeeded in her never ending quest to permanently remove me from my daughters’ lives. She even managed to brainwash them into hating me despite so many wonderful father-daughter experiences and not a single child abuse report: their first trips to Disney World, campaign parades, weekends on our boat at Lake George, carriage rides through Times Square, dancing to spontaneous entertainment in Central Park and, of course, the Macy’s Day parade. These are only some of our experiences that most children can only dream of especially with a never-ending pandemic underway. Is that pandemic a punishment from a higher power upset with all this?

Of the 40 trial jurists forced to step off my 14-year family court ordeal, Judge Daniel King was among the most disgraceful I have ever seen during my 30-plus years litigating as an attorney and parent. Fathers and “non-custodial” mothers are not invincible. Those of us committed to our God-given rights awake every morning with our children as the first thing on our minds. You can kill a person with a gun or simply pummel them relentless to obtain the same result.

Is there still time to choose a better outcome?

Rest in Peace Mike. You are not forgotten!

Corruption is rampant in Washington, the states and our courts: Join our open call Thursday, 10/29 at 7pm ET to discuss a public response: (605) 313-4427; code# 583326

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

When I filed a motion to have a Syracuse custody judge removed from my family court case, I was accosted by opposing lawyers who defended Judge Bryan Hedges as a judge “beyond reproach.” His defenders included William Koslosky who was the beneficiary of lucrative appointments. by Judge Hedges and others.

Fortunately my motion was successful because only months later, Judge Hedges resigned after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped, five-year old niece. As the court appointed lawyer for my young daughters at the time, William Koslosky joined those who defended Hedges until his disgraceful admission (Koslosky was never married and had no children but masqueraded as a child expert anyway).

One year after resignation, Judge Hedges was permanently banned from the bench by New York’s high court to prevent him from seeking re-election, In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). These pedophiles have no shame. How many more are out there and why is so much corruption being covered up? Why are parental alienations, suicides and child deaths caused by such corruption being suppressed?

Another Pedophile Judge Steps Down After Being “Exposed”

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Due to continued retaliation for my judicial reform and whistleblower activity, I have not been active on this website for the past few months. But that will now change. Since its inception in 2010, followers of Leon have been appraised of judicial misconduct in countless forms.

As a victim of New York’s dysfunctional divorce and family court system, I was thrust involuntarily into this reform movement after retaliation seriously harmed every aspect of my personal, professional and family life. Combined with my highly successful civil rights litigation over 23 unblemished years of practice, the motives for a witch hunt were widespread.

Over a 12-year ordeal in these courts, more than 40 trial level jurists have been removed from my family court matters alone. One of them, Michael Hanusczak, was one of the latest to go down after a judicial commission found that he had sexually harassed court staff, even offering one female subordinate to have 3-way sex with his wife.

Mr. Hanuszczak was one of my many child custody judges, and the news of his resignation last week raised more questions than it resolved. They transcend well beyond the confines of a judge’s staff and inner chambers, but no one is willing to investigate the wider corruption in order to protect the reputation of our so-called justice system.

For example, can a judge fixated on the female body be an impartial decision maker in proceedings between a male and female litigant? Will he have a tendency, intentionally, recklessly or subliminally, to favor women with the hope of attracting their affection?

Any incredulity over that question can be dispensed by reviewing the case of Michigan Family Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a female litigant in his chambers while presiding over her child support case. Prior to his “exposure,” he placed the male litigant on a support monitor, coming very close to incarcerating him altogether for a money debt.

Judge McCree was married at the time and permanently removed from the bench after he tried to make a come-back. The male litigant sued this judge in federal court for civil rights violations but the case was dismissed on grounds of judicial immunity, patterning my own experience when a self-policing branch of government fails to hold itself accountable. The Supreme Court refused to disturb the lower court dismissal leaving us with the shocking rule of law that adultery in chambers with a litigant is a protected judicial act.

Another family judge in my unprecedented ordeal was proclaimed by lawyers to be a “judge beyond reproach” in response to my motion for his removal in 2011. I was adamant that any session in private chambers with my then ten and eight year old daughters must not happen without the parents present (known as a Lincoln hearing). Being an office holder recommended for a judgeship years earlier, I based my motion additionally on the “political espionage” that this judge, Bryan Hedges, and district chief judge, James Tormey, were directing of family court clerks against their will. One clerk sued both judges in federal court resulting in a $600,000 recovery (judges are not immune from civil rights actions brought by subordinates), see Morin v Tormey 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).

Fortunately my motion to remove Hedges from my custody case was granted because only months later, this judge resigned and was later banned from holding judicial office by New York’s high court after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped, five year old niece, see In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). These are only some of the stands I took to protect my daughters which caused me such horrific persecution and sacrifice.

Both federal and state appeals courts did nothing to provide me with justice, compensation or even a mention of my good government objectives in any decision. Neither did the state judicial commission, leaving me with the right to take matters into my own hands by elevating my whistleblower activity and reform efforts. That only triggered more severe forms of retaliation resembling the ordeals of Chinese civil rights lawyers Gao Zhisheng and Chen Guangcheng.

Now comes the breaking podcast news series in the Washington Post yesterday which describes the pedophile activity of Washington D.C. Superior Judge “Truman A. Morrison III.” A sixteen year old girl never gave up her quest to secure justice against this judge for sexual misconduct during the seventies and his continued abuses after becoming a judge. Like Bryan Hedges he was defended by colleagues as a judge with an “impeccable professional reputation” see additional Post article excerpts below.

Over a four decade crusade by this victimized woman, some might have called it a chase for Moby Dick, but her long term commitment finally yielded some measure of vindication when Judge Morrison stepped down after receiving calls from Post reporters. In my case, the misconduct is diverse and widespread but because I am a male victim, there is no justice being served, at least not yet.

We are now in the midst of a process to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, one that could save our nation from vast civil unrest in the event our high court is called upon to decide a disputed presidential election. We victims of court corruption must join together and use this opportunity to raise critical issues of judge immunity, accountability, transparency and greater access to federal courts for a vindication of our federal rights.

We must call on the Supreme Court and Congress to review the systemic bias and funding abuses in these courts surrounding Title IV-D of the Social Security Act (child support incentives that lead to needless conflict, violence and debtor imprisonment). We need to raise funds for paid staff and a full time commitment to meaningful judicial reform nationwide.

Indeed a family court gag order on this site was removed in 2016 after I was forced to sue the abusive judge, Daniel King, in New York Supreme Court (Judge King stepped down from my case only days later.)
