Accept Reality: It’s Parents v Lawyers in a Family Court Casino

A Supreme Court justice once described them as “kangaroo courts,” In re Gault, 387 US at pg 28. But that was in 1967. In the four decades since, our nation’s family courts have become profit centers and revenue generating machines with an ever- diminishing concern for children or their true moms and dads.

Lawyers and child predators (appointed “experts” and child “representatives”) feed off contrived controversies instigated by a long antiquated “custody” framework for childrearing. Superior and inferior classifications force parents to fight for their offspring while bringing out the worst from them when children need their best.

It’s an unjust, discriminatory and barbaric framework. The last thing that families need when seeking resolution to their conflicts is an adversarial process that enriches those purporting to act in their “best interests.” That’s not just me saying this, but veteran jurists and expert commissions drawing the same conclusions, see i.e. Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Albany Family Court 2001) at fn. 1; 2006 Matrimonial Commission Report to (New York’s) Chief Justice (“Miller Report”).

So why is there no meaningful reform? The answer has been purposefully complicated by court generated propaganda to keep you in a state of protracted suffering. If anyone endeavors to expose the corruption, he or she is targeted for literal extinction, the vital message discredited through orchestrated ethics issues. In this way, the public is duped into believing that our whistleblowers are crazy and the system is fine. Just bring your petitions and your money. We’ll take care of the rest, the “justice” part.

I’ve been litigating as a victimized parent or trial lawyer in federal, state and family courts for more than thirty (30) years. I certainly know my way around the courthouse and how lawyers and former lawyers on the bench abuse parents and children for profit in our divorce and family courts. That’s the public message they have been targeting in my reform efforts for at least the past ten of those years.

If you are a regular follower of this site, you know what I am talking about. You are also in good company. This humble site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, has been monitored by judges, lawyers, politicians, ethics prosecutors, child “experts,” and corrupt officials since its birth in 2010. Lawyers have expressly targeted it in court and even gone so far as to generate an official report which attached seven postings as exhibits without any claim of inaccuracy or ethics charge.

Many of these monitors have remained infected by a singular purpose of censoring and literally killing my conscientious reform efforts directed to a nationwide epidemic, a government industry and war on parenthood. They are reaping billions of dollars in funds and interest revenues from our federal government and state collection centers (public banks) based on the number and magnitude of support orders manufactured in these courts (performance grants), Dept of Family v DHHS of U.S., 588 F.3d 740 (1st Cir, 2009).

In their greed, they wholly disregard the logical conclusion that such incentive funding makes these family judges inherently biased inasmuch as they are financially rewarded by jailing and fleecing moms and dads even when such parents form their own cooperating arrangements, Bast v Rossoff, 91 NY2d 723 (1998). It has made a mockery of due process and equal protection under our Constitution.

Over the past two weeks, I have been in Manhattan assisting other victims while seeking funding to defend against this trillion dollar industry protected by powerful bar associations and special interests. Internet trolls, pretend advocates and even some deranged victims have done a remarkable job of harming my reform efforts to a level of surrender, excess caution or needless suspicion.

And you wonder why you continue to suffer in these courts. I am long past the point of trying to explain how this system works to harm you. Few bother to study it with sufficient time or comprehension, choosing instead to continue feeding the system with replacement lawyers, credit cards and funds that can never be repaid to these courts. Meanwhile our donate option remains decadent.

Consequently I will simplify it to the bottom line. These family courts are glorified casinos. They are operated by lawyers and former lawyers on the bench selling chance. That’s right, a roll of the dice, a full house from a deck of poker cards, promises of a better outcome that reality will never bestow except in the rarest of cases. To that end, parents throw away all of their life earnings and savings to leave children without college funds and a truly better life.

I should know about casinos and family courts to make this logical comparison. I was able to invalidate a billion dollar casino compact in 2005 against the odds. So elitist was the court that it introduced me in one of its published decisions (in my favor) as an agent for a prominent law firm. I had never had any affiliation with that firm, instead I was solely retained to represent the successful citizens group. Verify this remarkable event for yourself at Oneida Nation v Oneida County, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000).

Accordingly, faced with this onslaught of defamation and “judicial waterboarding” (as I have depicted it in confidential court proceedings), I continue to rely on concerned citizens, potential investors and astute victims for true reform, those who recognize that we cannot fight Goliath with keyboards and pontifications to no one who cares about our individual cases.

We all have ordeals to tell. I have heard countless of them for decades now. Divide and conquer, concoct defamatory claims, and abuse the conscientious critic through whatever means, lawful or unlawful, to preserve this gold mine. It remains the effective strategy for crushing reform. And you wonder why no lawyers come forward to advocate for this vital cause. Frankly, after all that I’ve been through, who can blame them?

Finally! A Real Movement to Promote Parental Rights out of New York City

image.jpeg
St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Ash Wednesday 2017

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

I love New York City. Sometimes I think my parents conceived me here before announcing my birth upstate because I feel so “at home” in the place that never sleeps. Shortly after getting my learner’s driving permit at age 16, my dad was bold enough to let me drive through the heart of this metropolis to pick up a relative at JFK Airport.

He took that risk because he had little confidence in his own ability. I had never been there before but the street grid and highway infrastructure were committed to my studious memory. That was long before the era of satellite guided travel. Well we made the 500 mile round trip without incident as my dad comfortably conversed with our overseas visitors.

Today is Ash Wednesday in Manhattan where I have spent the past week again on assignment seeking funds and investments behind a serious parental rights movement. My work was carried out at my usual “side office” at the New York Hilton. If you are a regular follower of this site, Leon Koziol.com, then you know how our constitutionally protected parental rights are being systematically seized and eroded in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

As a highly successful and unblemished civil rights attorney for more than two decades, the court predators (as I call the lawyers and “expert” child evaluators in these courts) took action to discredit and eradicate my reform efforts against this trillion dollar industry.

Their retaliation continues to reach volatile proportions as I will never back down from my conscientious stand against a profession that is harming parent-child relationships for profit. Today’s post is not directed to a rehash of my mission but to inform you that I remain committed to this cause on your behalf.

I have had the pleasure of speaking and meeting with court victims from Paris to Hawaii. In a matter of only hours today, I was contacted by moms and dads motivated to change this corrupt custody system from Florida, New Mexico, Queens, Brooklyn and, of course, my good friends out in Suffolk County on Long Island. We are building a real movement here based on big money and powerful political influences with our new administration in Washington.

I am not at liberty to disclose what is currently in the works, indeed, it may never happen given the bar associations and special interests armed with millions of dollars working against us. But I can disclose that we are soliciting hedge fund executives and highly connected individuals to reverse the federal funding abuses and family carnage in these courts.

There are many “keyboard warriors” and GED court experts undermining our crucial movement, but there are also those who know the real crimes and corruption that are being committed by greedy lawyers and former lawyers on the family bench. I have distilled this epidemic into a simple undeniable framework: It is the Lawyers versus the Parents. Anything else is pure apathy, propaganda or foolish naivety.

Therefore, I must emphasize that I am a paid consultant for individual cases and your foremost ally for united reform efforts. I will donate my time only to rectify court corruption and unjust infringements upon parent-child relationships that are general in nature. I am not a public defender, legal aid lawyer and no longer a practicing attorney. I am much more, a true parental advocate, this sick system’s worst nightmare.

Moms remain the principal callers and I rarely respond to electronic communications due to their lazy, one-sided, time-consuming and impersonal nature. If you are “broke” and have no money to offer this movement, I cannot divert my time to engage in therapy sessions.

If that offends you, check out your lawyers bills. That is your true enemy, and it will only grow worse under the present state of apathy and surrender. I did not cause those bills, I’m the one who got crucified for my stand against this gold mine. So wake up folks. Stop talking and keyboarding to no one who cares about your individual cases. We must finally unite, and I believe that hope is here in Manhattan.

We are fighting a legalized syndicate that is bankrupting our families and our children. In short, I am your best friend and most fearless ally. That means that I need the donations and investments from you or those you know so that I can open up a headquarters here in New York staffed by similarly fearless lawyers and advocates to come into your courts and assure genuine accountability.

As I walked the streets of Manhattan today, I was impressed by the number of people wearing the ash crosses on their foreheads. From NYPD officers in their patrol cars to the classy women shopping on Fifth Avenue, it was a sight to behold. Contrary to what our liberal media is portraying, this great city has not yet succumbed to evil.

Our brothers and sisters from other religions could be also be spotted in all the same locations dutifully donning their skull caps and head dresses. It left me convinced that a diverse America is not yet lost. But it will take a united stand by moms and dads to keep it that way.

It all moved me to walk a few blocks farther to St. Patrick’s Cathedral where a diverse cross-section of priests were busy administering those ashes to the ever faithful lining up in the corridors. Indeed, the masses themselves were insufficient to handle the crowds. Of course, 68 degrees on March 1st did not hurt.

So no more talking, pontificating or bowling priorities folks. Get me the money and I will make this reform happen with my past accomplishments to prove it. Why else do you think they are targeting me so viciously? Kindly share this message not for my sake but for your children and future generations of Americans.

P.S: I am advised that there is a rally for Rik Little of Scranton, Pennsylvania at a Brooklyn courthouse to see his children after seven years of no contact. Can you believe that such cases exist when life term prisoners get more court ordered time with their offspring? I do not have all the details but I am sure many out there do. I can be reached at (315) 796-4000.

Dr. Koziol live in Manhattan covering pro-Trump rally on President’s Day

Admnistrator’s Note: 

Leon was assignment this past President’s Day weekend in Manhattan. He is advocating to advance human rights for a divorce victim in a horrific case.

Today at the conclusion of a conference at the New York Hilton he was summoned to report on a nearby rally organized to support President Trump on Presidents Day concluding at Trump Towers.

One supporter was particularly animated with a blow horn condemning Joe Sorros and his outside funding of treasonous, socialist and revolutionary activities.

It was a peaceful rally without vagina fashion models in attendance, thank goodness!

Is Your Divorce or Family Case Locked in a Kangaroo Court? We Can Help.

kr
The late Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas described them as “Kangaroo courts.” He was referring to family courts. Look it up at In re Gault, 387 US 1 at  pp. 27-28. Was he describing your court. It’s time to get your own “justice!”

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

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

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

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

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

We offer a Court Strategy Program to keep you from being abused and a team of experts to expose corruption in your case if it exists. It is well worth your while, for the sake of your children if nothing else. Look us up at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com, call our office at (315) 380-3420 or contact me personally at (315) 796-4000 to expose your injustices. Then take a look at this shocking excerpt of misconduct from a book I wrote  for divorce victim Tamara Sweeney entitled Jurassic Justice:

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

One of the shocking cases cited to make my point, and the need for meaningful accountability, involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mother not convinced the FBI to act upon her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be dispensing “justice.” It begs the question: how many other such judges and cases are there? What can explain Tamara’s bizarre case? We let you decide as our story continues.

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

While the “Honorable” “Justice” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income through an abuse of judicial office, another New York Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to help defray the cost of legal fees needed to defend against judicial misconduct charges pending against him at the time.

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

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

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

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a judicial corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in high school civics classes. But behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

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

 

Donald Trump or corrupt judge: which one must submit to a mental evaluation?

IMG_0253

Administrator’s note:

As we’ve said here time again, our public messages keep getting proven correct by the day. Today is no different. A story out of Breitbart news chronicles how liberals, socialists and communists, like the ones who joined in that Super Bowl protest, are now calling for a mental evaluation of Donald Trump. (Click Here to Read)

These characters will simply not accept the will of the people in a Democracy which elected Donald Trump only three months ago. In office only one day and he’s greeted by a hoard of vagina fashion models protesting with visible evidence of a demented society.

They are coming more unglued because our new president is actually doing what he was elected to do. These anti-Americans, anxious to bring more of their kind into this country, are now exploiting Trump’s criticism of a “so-called” federal judge in the state of Washington who put a stop order on the president’s temporary ban of refugees.

This guy in a robe was elected by no one. He was politically appointed for life and saw an opportunity to glorify himself with national attention (like federal judge Gary Sharpe did according to former senate leader Joe Bruno in his new book, Keep Swinging). This judge decided to interfere with national security with harm already showing up with the recent flood of incoming from the Middle East.

This judge is actually ruling America for the moment as our self-appointed president, like family judges ruling over our children and interfering with private lives beyond powers allowed under our Constitution. The real president is justified in laying blame for any consequences on this judge just like we moms and dads are justified in laying blame on the kangaroo family judges for the social epidemic we have today.

We must stop blaming good parents for the consequences of mentally deranged family judges (not every judge, only the ones who abuse their egos and jurisdiction). Any mental evaluation of Donald Trump was successfully completed on Election Day, his reform message has not changed, unless they’re saying half the voting population also needs a mental evaluation, the “deplorables” as Ms. Whitewater, Monicagate and e-mail scandal expert called them.

The Trump developments give us pause to reproduce here a post which is very timely on the subject:

In the Wake of Recent Events, Litigants are Entitled to Better Accountability and Due Process.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

When New York’s Chief Justice, Sol Wachtler, was arrested and imprisoned for stalking a debutant and falsifying reports to authorities, it was clear to the world that he suffered from a severe mental disease. Several years ago, this convict was re-licensed as an attorney and assigned to teach ethics if you can believe that.

But there is much more to this story which the public has generally not known. For example, while serving in our third branch of government, Sol Wachtler directed paid staff in chambers to investigate a New Jersey lawyer for the purpose of impairing his law license. That lawyer had become too friendly with the debutant Wachtler had been secretly dating as a married man.

Such precedent has relevance to my ordeal as a civil rights attorney, unblemished for more than 23 years, when I began a reform campaign directed to our divorce and family courts. With each public criticism or formal complaint there arose a matching act of retribution which harmed my parent-child relations and professional livelihood, this coming from the branch of government charged with the highest duty of protecting First Amendment rights.

As fate would have it, the “ethics lawyers” employed by an appeals court in Albany, engaged in the witch hunt against me, were fired for falsifying time sheets in 2013, only weeks after admitting in a closed hearing that they had been targeting my website and formal complaints. As a defense attorney, I once had a client who was charged with a felony for alleged misuse of a city gas card amounting to $16. Yet here, the standard- bearers of attorney ethics, Peter Torncello and Steven Zayas, have never faced any public charges while I remain damaged by their misconduct.

Today we read about a deranged airline pilot who crashed a passenger jet into the French Alps. The public is rightfully demanding better mental health accountability. In our family courts, parents and children are being subjected to mental health evaluations every day on self serving accusations of a scorned litigant or state agency. As explained in prior posts here at Leon Koziol.com, such orders yield billions of dollars in fees and revenues for lawyers and bureaucrats.

But what about the judges, top jurists like Sol Wachtler, who issue such orders like burgers at a restaurant? Didn’t his court clerks have a duty under the ethics code to report his misconduct and seek a mental health evaluation before the public was harmed? Did anyone even raise the issue? Or do we conveniently assume that this was all an isolated series of crimes no longer relevant to our system of justice? Well think again, it’s only gotten worse.

In 2013, a Syracuse family judge, Bryan Hedges, was removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct upon his five year old handicapped niece. At the same time, a Michigan judge admitted to an extramarital affair in chambers with a mother during a child support case which resulted in her pregnancy. Shortly before that, a family judge in Texas was exposed on video beating his teen daughter. In 2009, a state Supreme Court judge in New York City was imprisoned for taking a $9,000 bribe to fix a custody case against a fit mother, and two Pennsylvania judges were also sent to prison in the now infamous “kids for cash” bribery scandal requiring the reversal of 4,000 juvenile convictions.

These are only some of the shocking cases of judicial misconduct that we have featured here. When viewed individually, it’s alarming enough, but taken together, it raises a potential epidemic in our justice system. For example, how would you know that your opposing lawyer is not so connected as to fix a custody case? In the Michigan case, an unsuspecting father was prejudiced with monitoring devices and jail threats to the glee of his pregnant adversary. How many cases are out there today which will never be discovered given the brazen nature of these very recent incidents?

Make no mistake, it’s not just ethical misconduct being overlooked by our judicial commissions, but felonies and deranged actions of office holders held to the highest public trust. Children are being alienated and even removed from fit and loving parents simply because an unscrupulous lawyer with a paid psychologist is able to concoct some voodoo syndrome to explain human emotions inflamed by these very same needless and lucrative court proceedings.

Suddenly the children are at risk and court ordered evaluations are required as a condition for seeing one’s offspring. This is the gold mine that is causing people like investigator  Joseph Longo to commit a murder-suicide that left three children without parents. How are such losses any different than those caused by an airline pilot or his German superiors. Shouldn’t deranged judges and lawyers who profit from their misdeeds be held similarly accountable with mental health evaluations?

In coming days, we will be exposing the deranged behavior of a family judge in Lowville, New York who goes by the name of Dan King. He is a quintessential example of incompetence, arrogance and evil which mars our system of justice and harms innocent children exploited as a means of retribution for public criticisms properly asserted against him. Hopefully, with enough public support, we can remove him like we did Bryan Hedges before more harm is inflicted upon families in family court.

Know the Real “Law” in Family Court: It’s Parents vs Lawyers

index
Check out our Court Strategy Program:  Learn how to cut lawyer costs or represent yourself

 

Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

This will be a personal message to my thousands of followers. If it’s okay with you guys, I kinda think of you as family. Whatever differences we may have, we’re on the same team like it or not. Injustices tend to do that. But take heart, it’s an American team. Kindly let me explain. This may benefit you more than you know.

In recent days, I’ve received a flurry of calls from parents devastated by their experiences in family court. Nearly all were women, split evenly between moms and relatives. Their stories had a particularly devastating impact on me because I am a victim as well and can relate to your pain (unlike the lawyers you pay so much for). You cannot imagine being invited into so many painful ordeals while trying to survive your own over a ten year period.

I don’t know what the uptick is all about, maybe my predictions of a growing epidemic are simply coming true, but it prompted me to craft this heartfelt response. You’re going to have to read all of it. Nothing on television or your electronic devices is more important for the moment. Share it and promote it if you truly care about our children. Having spent more than 30 years litigating in federal and state courts, I will be giving valuable insights that no lawyer will regardless how much you pay in fees.

The simple and logical reason for that is a profound fear of becoming me, that is, a former civil rights attorney tortured in every unimaginable way for exposing court corruption. It’s in my reports, my filings and all over my blog site which has been targeted to the point of a family court gag order being imposed last year. That order was removed only after I was forced to challenge it in New York Supreme Court on First Amendment grounds.

So for starters, if you’re reading this at Leon Koziol.com, you’re in good company. A lot of others are studying it too: judges, lawyers, ethics investigators, watchdog groups, law enforcement, government employees, politicians, psychologists, law guardians, John the plumber, Mary the illegal alien, maybe even Donald Trump considering a Supreme Court motion his lawyer took interest in. It was one to have Justice Ginsburg removed from my case due to her politicking from chambers against Trump, the candidate, when it was risky to do so (Docket no. 15-1519 if you don’t believe me).

In the day, I was featured in the New York Times as a candidate for Congress, and Morley Safer actually traveled to my law office to interview me for a feature story on 60 Minutes. All that is on my blogsite in addition to some big cases I won over a stellar 23 years of practice until the retributions began because of my court reform efforts. I’m not doing this to brag, trust me, I needed all that persecution like I needed Hillary Clinton. I’m emphasizing my background because that is one thing my judge and lawyer adversaries cannot extinguish. They have forced me to advertise it to defend against their onslaught.

You see, these power abusers have made it their unbridled agenda to crush my public message and reform efforts by tearing down my reputation and credibility. They are banking on the belief that most of you are naïve, uneducated to their levels, and ripe for deceiving with a bevy of propaganda at their disposal. So that reverts us back to my public message which you will be pleased to know is still alive and growing along with the corruption in divorce and family court.

The cause for your pain, well most of you anyway, is a profit motive and revenue generating scheme in these courts. On the surface, you’re made to believe it’s about our children’s best interests, a legitimate system of justice where the rule of law prevails, and judges, lawyers, and parenting “experts” are all ethical and conscientious. When you come into court, it’s the standard “All rise!” Everyone stands up, pays homage to the one cloaked in the black robe, you’re directed to “be seated,” all the perfunctory exchanges are made, so impressive and intimidating, and then justice is served.

Now erase all that. It’s anything but that. Those routines are for the real courts not a tribunal which one Supreme Court justice labeled a “kangaroo court,” In re Gault, 387 US 1 at pg. 28. Truth is, in these courts, it’s all a “game.” And if you don’t believe that, I’ll show you page 21 of a January 15, 2014 transcript in New York Family Court where Judge Daniel King declared exactly that: “You know the game Mr. Koziol. You’re a practiced attorney.” Imagine that! You’re faithfully seeking justice, following protocols, paying big bucks for lawyers, more for court fees, your children are at risk of being legally kidnapped, and the judge tells you it’s all a game?!

Divorce and family courts are public battlegrounds where moms and dads can be fleeced of every last dollar. “Family” Court is the ultimate oxymoron. Lawyers and former lawyers on the bench will keep this war on families going because they can, and no one bold or conscientious enough is there to stop them. Well, except me maybe, while I’m still standing anyway. Let me ask you this: when was the last time you heard any judge question the fees that were being racked up in any family court case? Has any oversight committee anywhere looked into the abuse of tax dollars by judge-appointed child lawyers?

How can you expect accountability when the chief counsel and deputy lawyers of an attorney ethics committee are allowed to resign for falsifying their times sheets without any public ethics or criminal charges against them? They work for the judges, folks. They’re the standard bearers of attorney ethics with a duty for checking overbilling practices, and they were the lawyers engaged in the witch hunt against me. Again, this is true, we don’t make things up on this blog site. That’s why our followers are growing. Look it up: Gavin, Oversight lawyers quit amid inquiry, (Albany) Times Union, July 10, 2013.

Well how about the judges then? Okay, let’s talk about the judges. When was the last time you read about a judge like Ruth Bader Ginsburg on our highest court giving a news conference like she did against Donald Trump, one to put a stop to all the carnage in our nation’s family courts? Everyone knows it’s happening. Their own studies conclude as much. So where’s the concern for the public from bar associations, licensed predators draining our children’s college funds?

I thought this was “family court.” What families are they talking about? Is it the people or the almighty dollar they are serving? Why are they acting so blind to an epidemic? In only a few days, my recent calls came from Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida, California and New York. I’m sure, other states will soon check in because this is a silent and insidious killer of good Americans and loving parents. No media are giving it the time of day because there’s nothing sexy here. It’s just a lot of “he-said, she-said” family squabbles too messy and personal to apply any First Amendment duties.

It’s anything but that, my friends. This is one giant war, Parents v Lawyers, not Parents vs Parents like they promote for profit in these courts. It is perpetuated by a federal bureaucracy acting as a “super parent” for America, abusing our tax dollars to provide incentives for state judges to manufacture the largest number and amounts of child support orders to receive kickbacks under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. It’s a law claiming to improve consistency and reliability for support enforcement. In reality, it’s one big revenue generating scandal. Just ask former Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer who campaigned across the country exposing that scandal until she mysteriously died in a highly investigated murder-suicide at the hands of her husband of 52 years.

Under that entitlement law, parents are required to name a superior “custodial parent” even when they earn roughly the same amount with the same parenting time, i.e. the two lawyer parents in Bast v Rossoff, 91 NY2d 723 (1998). This forces moms and dads to fight against one another for that almighty custody award while filling the bank accounts of lawyers. I mean come on here folks. Why do you think shared parenting, such a logical and progressive model for childrearing, is so vigorously opposed by bar associations and (predator) special interest groups (non-lawyer beneficiaries feeding off this system).

I have had my share of misguided critics and those planted to derail reform of their gold mine. Many have declared that this is all a state matter, so we should not be rallying in Washington. “Feds got nothing to with it.” In reality, such GED court experts prefer to bemoan their ordeals from the comfort of their home keyboards to no one who cares while these federal entitlement laws worsen, causing lucrative custody battles for lawyers, revenues for family judges and bankruptcies for parents. For us, it’s actually much worse in the form of suicides, murders, child alienation or seizure, premature deaths, serious health impacts and social ills. The list goes on.

I am nearing the completion of a profound and comprehensive book regarding this epidemic to be timed with the next retribution by the courts here in New York. It’s appropriately titled: Killing Courts: A True Story of Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. It is designed, among other things, to incite a true reform movement and rally in Washington D.C. If we don’t make noise, there is no problem, and the carnage will grow even worse, harming future generations in unimaginable ways.

How can you hold your judge or lawyer accountable for misconduct?

A picture tells a thousand words in divorce and family court

By Dr. Leon Koziol

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

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

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

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

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

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

One of the shocking cases cited to make my point, and the need for meaningful accountability, involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mother not convinced the FBI to act upon her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be dispensing “justice.” It begs the question: how many other such judges and cases are there? What can explain Tamara’s bizarre case? We let you decide as our story continues.

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

While the “Honorable” “Justice” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income through an abuse of judicial office, another New York Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to help defray the cost of legal fees needed to defend against judicial misconduct charges pending against him at the time.

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

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

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

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a judicial corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in high school civics classes. But behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

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