Nationwide Support Growing for Federal Criminal Investigation of Family Courts

IMG_0905
Knocked down, beat up and nearly killed, I’m still standing, now in the halls of Congress seeking to elicit a federal criminal investigation of corruption in our nation’s family courts. The persecution by judges, lawyers and county sheriff has only increased my resolve to give abused moms, dads and children justice for all their needless suffering.

Parenting Rights Institute

Today, PRI Director, Dr. Leon Koziol, continued with his quest to elicit a federal criminal investigation of corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. An upgraded report was submitted to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer after last week’s personal interactions with Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A copy was also submitted to a highly intrigued reporter of the Associated Press.

In only two days, highly enthusiastic support has come from across the country by phone, e-mail and our thousands of Facebook followers. Most are highly informed victims who “get” what Leon is trying to do. A special thanks to all of you from our volunteers at Parenting Rights Institute.

We need a groundswell of support behind a lobbying blitz in Congress. Pontifications from keyboards in the comfort of our homes is accomplishing nothing. Feel free to contact our office at (315) 380-3420 or Dr. Koziol personally, wherever he may be these days, at (315) 796-4000. Below is an excerpt of his upgraded report which may be of great value to those who doubt the reality of court corruption. Kindly share it with all.

__________________________________________________________

The petition and record in Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. provide all the necessary support for a federal criminal investigation of the civil rights abuses found throughout a ten year whistleblower ordeal. The case exemplifies or exposes a national epidemic supporting a separate congressional inquiry into federal funding abuses in state family courts. The Supreme Court site under docket number 18-278 offers a petition, appendix, stay motion and affidavits at the end to verify the foregoing and to alert the public of a crisis in federal law violations. 

If these highly uncontested facts are insufficient to draw the interest of our federal authorities, such criminal statutes are meaningless for those who do not satisfy traditional victim status. A white male parent raised in poverty conditions whose own father spent five years in a Nazi war camp should not have to endure all the man-hating prejudice which surrounded the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process. That process has now taken father discrimination to unprecedented levels. A back-lash of severe proportion is pending because our halls of justice continue to pretend that dads, victimized only by their birth status, are getting fair treatment.  

Related to this, judicial accountability is routinely overlooked based on an elite presumption of superiority. Yet it is easily countered by such events as a federal sting operation (Greylord) involving judicial criminality in Chicago during the 1980s. 93 people were indicted after an undercover investigation by joint effort of the FBI and state law enforcement. They included 17 judges, 48 lawyers, 10 deputy sheriffs, eight policemen, eight court officials and an elected official. Nearly all were convicted of crimes ranging from bribery to mail fraud and racketeering. Three committed suicide including a state judge. Another died in 2011 shortly after his release.

More recently, a predecessor of New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore was sent to federal prison for extortion and false reports to FBI agents during an investigation of complaints made by the judge’s mistress. He also directed taxpayer financed court clerks to harm the law license interests of the attorney who was assisting the victim and her daughter regarding those crimes. Ex-New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler directed a horrific campaign of crime, ultimately conceding in a subsequent book, After the Madness, that judges were trained to think of themselves as gods. 

Brooklyn judge Gerald Garson was convicted for accepting a bribe to fix a child custody case. Upstate Judge Thomas Spargo sought a bribe behind a threat to harm a lawyer in a divorce case. In the Pennsylvania “kids for cash scandal,” two judges were sent to prison for accepting bribes from detention center construction contractors. Some 4,000 juvenile convictions had to be thrown out by the state’s high court whose own justices have been the subject of misconduct in recent years. Judge Wade McCree of Detroit was removed from the bench after he impregnated a mother litigant in his chambers. The father was placed on a child support monitor. He sued for compensation but was denied relief in federal court based on judicial immunity. The list goes on.

On September 18, 2018, the New York Post featured a story about petitioner’s Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, who sent a memo to her staff warning of “thuggish” retaliatory behavior connected to her opponent. Claudia was present in petitioner’s home in 2010 prior to her first political victory when the current reform effort was announced. Her opponent, Anthony Brindisi, is a state assemblyman, attorney, law partner and son of Louis Brindisi, a reputed mob lawyer charged with seven felonies during the 1990s for operating a drug ring out of the law firm’s offices. A lawyer there was earlier found tied to a chair and murdered in the law office basement. The underworld activity here was the target of a federal sting operation during the 1950s. It was all well depicted in a Utica, New York newspaper series by Rocco LaDuca entitled “Mob Files.” 

Attorney Louis Brindisi escaped with a misdemeanor plea after he began releasing the names of all prominent people who attended his law office parties. He never lost his law license. This is the same community where this petitioner maintained an unblemished law practice until it was destroyed by a secretary influenced by outside parties to sabotage office calendars, pilfer bank accounts and conceal client material to create ethics violations. Her crimes were discovered in 2009, but local police and prosecutors failed to act on petitioner’s criminal complaints. She was convicted of felonies upon later law office employers and sent to jail in 2016.

The victim now petitioning for a federal investigation has been accumulating evidence to show that an illegal drug operation remains alive and lucrative in the Utica, New York region. His ex-secretary was a loyal and efficient employee for years until she began boasting of parties she attended where cocaine was being abused by all. She also began a gambling addiction at Turning Stone Casino supported by a clandestine law practice finally ended with petitioner’s assistance in 2012 by her arrest in another county. After her 2009 firing by petitioner, it was learned that she had developed ties to certain lawyers for purposes of harming this whistleblower’s career.

Editor’s Note: Those lawyers are exposed in the report.

This is an open letter to Art Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times from a secondary media dot com. We know you’ll never read it, that’s why it’s being published on the viral internet, a cheap and logical source for all the news today that’s truly “fit to print.”

We’ve had all we can take of the brazen propaganda you’ve been feeding us: the cropping of George Bush from a front page photo of the Selma parade, negative election coverage of Donald Trump, and now the op-ed submissions you’re screening to keep it going.

It is an abuse of free press by the “gray-lady” that would have her predecessor publishers turning over in their graves. After the election of the century that you refused to honor, I came across one opinion after another published by your newspaper containing that anti-Trump venom.

These diatribes from select “experts” followed front page liberal media declaring that “we were all wrong” about election predictions. No YOU were all wrong. We were right, over 62 million of us. How can you purport to speak for such a large number of voters?

So as a good American, I offered my own counter-point with the requisite three day exclusive rights, word limit and timely subject matter. I provided copies to your other departments and two voice mails at your office. Could it be the idea of a long needed expansion of our Supreme Court under a Trump administration that caused you to trash it? Let your readers decide:

Re: Election 2016’s “Forgotten Half” and accessibility of our Supreme Court

Dear Editor:

For all the explanations on the election of Donald Trump as our 45th president, the most accurate one remains off the radar. This was the election featuring our forgotten half, a subject which now binds the president-elect, this newspaper and our Supreme Court in an extraordinary way.

You know the forgotten half. They’re the ones who went into the towers on 9-11, sacrificed their lives in foreign wars throughout our history, protected us daily in our communities, and built this great nation one edifice at a time. They are the men of America.

I happen to be born into that time-honored gender. But hardly a day went by during the elections when we were not forced to endure the constant focus on women: the first female president, pink but not blue ribbons, shattered glass ceilings and my favorite: the fictitious “war on women.”

After the Megyn Kelly debacle, I published a satirical blog, Who Declared the War on Women? Citing a lack of constitutional authority for such a war which nevertheless failed to deter any recent president, I enlisted to defend my daughters, sisters and lovers only to discover I was an unwitting member of the enemy camp.

The woman card became that fanatical, a ploy to sweep Hillary Clinton into office. But a silent half internalized the sexist insults until election day while 42% of all women refused to be the objects for exploitation they had been escaping for decades. They had fathers, sons and brothers to think about.

While that war was being waged, I was filing petitions to shatter a glass ceiling in our family courts. On June 17, 2016, dads from different parts of our country joined me in a news conference at our Supreme Court. No media showed up. All our petitions were denied while a gender confused school girl seeking daily access to a bathroom of choice was accepted.

Reliant on secondary media to promote my cause for parental equality, I published a blog site supportive of shared parenting over Hillary’s “Village,” a subject ignored in both conventions and campaigns. It featured unwavering support for Donald Trump as the only hope for court reform. But the woman card was so brazen that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg conducted her own news interviews from chambers to attack the male candidate as a private citizen.

In a break from the Trump-bashing media frenzy, this newspaper published a bold editorial condemning the aberrant political conduct of a high court justice. That conduct required me to file a motion for disqualification of Justice Ginsburg from my pending case. It was an extraordinary one featuring First Amendment retributions by various judges in New York.

My motion was docketed as a “suggestion” and never mentioned in an October order denying my petition. Undaunted I filed another within 24 hours, but this time I abandoned all hope of parent equality and focused instead on the inaccessibility of the Supreme Court to our common citizenry. Less than one percent of roughly 10,000 petitions are accepted for decision each year.

From all this, a historic proposal has emerged in my latest petition discussed with Mr. Trump’s counsel. It is high time we expand the Supreme Court to conform to population changes so that more people could access it as mandated implicitly by Article III of the Constitution. With all three branches under the same party influence, this can happen with few obstacles.

This is not a “Court Packing Plan.” My petition is properly placed with the Supreme Court to satisfy its separate duties under the same Constitution. St. John’s University Professor Anthony Pappas, a fellow victim, has authored a paper on this very subject, concluding that the reluctance to expand may be due to the attention which Justices derive in smaller numbers, i.e. Ginsburg.

Central to my petition is Marbury v Madison, 5 US 137 (1803), that historic case familiar to every law student in which the Supreme Court seized the power to interpret our Constitution and thereby set itself up as a super-branch of government. That Court had six members with an elitist plan in Congress to reduce it to five.

Our population was under six million in 1803. Two centuries later it exceeds 300 million. Horse-drawn buggies brought our leaders to Washington and much of the world was unknown. Today our President-elect arrives in his own jet with instantaneous global communications. Our Congress had 141 voting members. Today it has 535.

Adding to history, intrigue and logic, the Marbury case, like my earlier petition and motion, involved an (extraordinary) mandamus action to compel the filling of a magistrate vacancy during a transition between President John Adams and incoming President Thomas Jefferson (perhaps our most populist president).

Freedom of Speech, Press and Petition (Judicial Access) are distinct rights in our First Amendment that bind Donald Trump, this newspaper and our citizenry to support a long overdue expansion of our high court. It is a ready proposition in my pending petition and consistent with a populist mandate achieved by President-elect Donald Trump.

Parents to Rally Against Family Court Corruption June 22 at New York Supreme Court in Utica

 

Dr Leon Koziol with former New York Governor David Patterson in Manhattan this week. Leon is seeking his support for family law reform and provided him with a copy of Leon’s recently published report entitled Custody Court Dysfunction: A Nationwide Epidemic.
 
Dr. Leon Koziol will be arguing a case against father discrimination, court corruption and parental alienation on June 22, 2016 at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica, New York. On May 3, 2016, a state Supreme Court Justice signed an order directing family judge Daniel King to answer a mandamus action regarding a gag order issued on this blog site, Leon Koziol.com.

One day later, that same Judge Daniel King canceled a trial on the gag order he issued in November, 2015, the day before the next business day when it was set to begin. That trial had already been adjourned without explanation in early April leaving Leon and the administrators of this site under a condition of arrest by ambush for six months given the vague terms of King’s gag order (disguised as a protection order). 

Obviously Judge King, new to the bench, was abusing judicial office to punish Leon’s public criticisms of his incompetence and 2013 testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. Leon reported King’s misconduct and widespread corruption in New York’s family courts, i.e. Leon’s custody judge (Bryan Hedges) removed from the bench for admitting  to sexual misconduct upon his handicapped five year old niece. 

When Leon toasted his own niece at her wedding with his daughters at the table, Judge King issued an order suspending contact based on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” which was not prohibited anywhere if you can even guess what that means. Yet the barmaid of a tavern in Lowville, New York has Judge King’s cocktail committed to memory when he patronizes there with his own children. Yes, true story. As we’ve stated often on this site: “You just can’t make this stuff up.” 

Leon sought recourse before the Commission for college degrees fabricated by King and a support magistrate to elevate Leon’s support obligations for punitive incarceration purposes. Only yesterday a support magistrate stepped down from Leon’s case bringing the total trial level jurists to 37. Yes folks  this reads like a John Grisham novel. But unfortunately it’s a true story. Meanwhile in the same court, convicted criminals and drug abusing moms are getting unsupervised custody of their children. 

You might think with the gag order set aside that Leon has already won his case set for June 22nd, the Wednesday after Fathers’ Day at 1:30 pm. But the wrongfully issued gag order which includes bizarre prohibitions against strangulation and larceny constituted pure harassment by a family judge exploiting innocent children to suppress Leon’s reform efforts. That’s why arguments are going forward even after defense counsel got an adjournment from the original date of June 10th. 

Readers of this site will assuredly move on to some other diversion without making any effort to come to these arguments for moral support. That’s why you are being victimized with impunity in your own cases, because you have allowed them to treat such cases as a trouble-free and Constitution-abusing zone. 

Fortunately there are dedicated Americans like Jim Ginther of Staten Island, New York City who has offered to organize a freedom train out of Penn Station to rally at the courthouse in Utica. Call us at Parenting Rights Institute, (315) 380-3420 to do your part for America’s children and families.

DID SUPPRESSION OF FREE SPEECH AT PUBLIC CORRUPTION HEARINGS INSULATE GOVERNMENT FROM ACCOUNTABILITY?

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.
