Dr. Leon Koziol will be arguing a case against father discrimination, court corruption and parental alienation on June 22, 2016 at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica, New York. On May 3, 2016, a state Supreme Court Justice signed an order directing family judge Daniel King to answer a mandamus action regarding a gag order issued on this blog site, Leon Koziol.com.
One day later, that same Judge Daniel King canceled a trial on the gag order he issued in November, 2015, the day before the next business day when it was set to begin. That trial had already been adjourned without explanation in early April leaving Leon and the administrators of this site under a condition of arrest by ambush for six months given the vague terms of King’s gag order (disguised as a protection order).
Obviously Judge King, new to the bench, was abusing judicial office to punish Leon’s public criticisms of his incompetence and 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. Leon reported King’s misconduct and widespread corruption in New York’s family courts, i.e. Leon’s custody judge (Bryan Hedges) removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct upon his handicapped five year old niece.
When Leon toasted his own niece at her wedding with his daughters at the table, Judge King issued an order suspending contact based on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” which was not prohibited anywhere if you can even guess what that means. Yet the barmaid of a tavern in Lowville, New York has Judge King’s cocktail committed to memory when he patronizes there with his own children. Yes, true story. As we’ve stated often on this site: “You just can’t make this stuff up.”
Leon sought recourse before the Commission for college degrees fabricated by King and a support magistrate to elevate Leon’s support obligations for punitive incarceration purposes. Only yesterday a support magistrate stepped down from Leon’s case bringing the total trial level jurists to 37. Yes folks this reads like a John Grisham novel. But unfortunately it’s a true story. Meanwhile in the same court, convicted criminals and drug abusing moms are getting unsupervised custody of their children.
You might think with the gag order set aside that Leon has already won his case set for June 22nd, the Wednesday after Fathers’ Day at 1:30 pm. But the wrongfully issued gag order which includes bizarre prohibitions against strangulation and larceny constituted pure harassment by a family judge exploiting innocent children to suppress Leon’s reform efforts. That’s why arguments are going forward even after defense counsel got an adjournment from the original date of June 10th.
Readers of this site will assuredly move on to some other diversion without making any effort to come to these arguments for moral support. That’s why you are being victimized with impunity in your own cases, because you have allowed them to treat such cases as a trouble-free and Constitution-abusing zone.
Fortunately there are dedicated Americans like Jim Ginther of Staten Island, New York City who has offered to organize a freedom train out of Penn Station to rally at the courthouse in Utica. Call us at Parenting Rights Institute, (315) 380-3420 to do your part for America’s children and families.
THE ARREST OF NEW YORK’S TOP ASSEMBLY LEADER MAY BE THE TIP OF AN ICEBERG
Parental Advocate, Dr. Leon R. Koziol, was one of the fortunate few selected from the general public to speak before the Governor’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption at New York’s Pace University on September 17, 2013 (Constitution Day). Meanwhile vast numbers were denied access altogether in the streets outside the building. If you recall our website posts at the time, public emotions erupted into spontaneous protests and arrests as a well scripted Commission deliberated ultimately to a point of impotence, achieving nothing in the months of its costly existence.
When evidence began to surface implicating the Governor himself and top state officials, the Commission was prematurely dissolved in March, 2014. Fortunately one of the speakers, federal prosecutor Preet Bharara, chastised the unexpected move during an interview in Buffalo, New York. He then secured Commission files progressively leading to the January 22, 2015 arrest of New York Assembly Speaker, Sheldon Silver, on bribery and corruption charges involving New York law firms and millions of dollars in public money. While the federal investigations were underway, Mr. Koziol was being targeted and punished for his own testimony at the same hearing by disciplinary agents of the state’s judiciary.
Only weeks after the Moreland Commission was disbanded, a report was issued on April 8, 2014 opposing reinstatement of Leon’s law license with a complete copy of his testimony. This report was not issued by an independent entity like Mr. Bharara’s office, it was prepared by attorneys hired and supervised by the very court being criticized and responsible for the licensing decisions. Only nine months earlier, the chief attorney and his associate engaged in the same targeting activity were fired for falsifying their time sheets, publicly financed time which was also misappropriated to violate Leon’s civil rights. No public charges were lodged against them.
The targeting of Leon’s speech and reform efforts after 23 unblemished years as a successful civil rights attorney was admitted in an unrecorded, confidential hearing held by the same licensing court in May, 2013. Clearly provocative but never alleged to be false, Leon’s Commission testimony cited extensive judicial misconduct including a Syracuse judge assigned to his custody case who was removed from the bench for sexual misconduct upon his handicapped five year old niece. He also asked for an investigation into the state’s Judicial Conduct Commission due to its political nature and failure over the years to hold judges properly accountable. Like Sheldon Silver, many were later arrested and convicted by federal authorities.
Federal mandamus and civil rights actions were accordingly filed by Mr. Koziol in lower Manhattan and the state’s capital, but indications are that the constitutional atrocities will be suppressed, dismissed and otherwise punished to assure business as usual in America’s divorce and family courts. Any logical observer must therefore conclude that our third branch of government is simply placing itself above the law, in this case our supreme laws entrusted to its care under the Constitution. Mr. Koziol sacrificed his career and family to promote a long overdue cause for the people against his own profession. So is that it? We simply walk away while our veterans and public safety officers return to alienated children, draconian enforcement practices and discriminatory treatment by the government they swore to protect?
As Americans, we are charged with a duty to do much more. Ominous signs are everywhere concerning the ongoing erosion of our most cherished rights and beliefs, from NSA surveillance to IRS targeting of conservative groups and more. We simply cannot ignore all this by returning to our couches and routines. After Mr. Koziol’s return from Paris on a mission to accord parenting rights international protection, a million people rallied in that city to support free speech. When will a similar rally emerge here in Washington to promote the same rights, equal treatment of fathers and support for truly struggling mothers?
Many thanks to three recent benefactors in Paris, New York and Tennessee for their major donations. A trip to Nashville is set for March as stated in an earlier post. Once again, we need everyone’s involvement to promote this vital cause. Help us with media contact and other potential donors. We also ask for personal contributions and purchase of our court program which has helped so many parents navigate their way successfully and economically through family court.
