“I would love to come off this bench and wipe that smirk off your face!” Judge Gerald Popeo to litigant in his courtroom

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

It’s hard to believe but true! Roseanne Barr was removed from her reboot television show due to a single racist tweet. But in our courts of law where we would least expect such shocking behavior, a New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decided to merely censure an upstate city judge for a lot more. He was not removed but excused for more serious racist remarks to an African-American attorney. He joked that New York City blacks think of upstate blacks as “country niggers.”

This reckless and arrogant judge caused one of my former African-American clients to attempt suicide in a city jail cell for minor (targeting) nuisance charges that were later dismissed by a jury. He even threatened a violent act from the bench to another litigant. His name is Gerald Popeo, and he was recently assigned to my family court case to complete the retaliation for my public criticisms after 39 prior trial jurists were removed from my 12-year originally uncontested divorce case.

Where is the outrage to all this from ABC, or any other news medium for that matter? Will Facebook and other secondary media suppress this story as well? A major stand-off is forthcoming after Judge Popeo lied in a decision on my motion for his removal. He lied in the same manner that he denied the racist remarks in Utica City Court. For the sake of all people, victimized parents and our precious children, let us overcome that censorship of us ‘”little guys” in society. Help make this story viral. Contact ABC news, NAACP, your elected officials, etc.

Here’s that story at http://www.leonkoziol.com published only weeks ago:

If you’ve been following my family court matters in recent months, you already know about a racist judge in the City Court of Utica, New York who was assigned as an Acting Family Judge on my never ending custody and support matters. He is Trial Judge #41, a judicial record by most accounts, and he was assigned despite a recent censure by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct after a hearing judge concluded that he had made racist remarks to an African-American attorney, threats from the bench and abuses of contempt powers in violation of due process.

The Commission Chairman dissented and voted to remove Judge Gerald Popeo altogether as a judge because such misconduct cannot justify continued deliberations for the diverse people served by our courts. So how did this local city judge suddenly end up on my case after judges from as far away as Oswego (Lake Ontario) and Lewis County (near Canadian border) were assigned and disqualified for undisclosed reasons?

As a former civil rights attorney who has clashed with this judge as recently as last summer at a local bar, how could he be deemed impartial by Judge James (Bond) Tormey, the Syracuse Administrative Judge who assigned him after judges #39 and #40 were removed only weeks ago? Very compelling circumstances dictate that this “Acting Family Judge” has been assigned to provoke and finish me off.

These circumstances were embodied in a cross-motion to add Judge Gerald Popeo to my extraordinary hybrid case filed in New York Supreme Court. It is a parental equality case which names the state’s Chief Judge, James “Bond” Tormey and my custody and support judges as respondents. It seeks overdue precedent for victimized parents everywhere, i.e. full legal recognition of parental alienation.

Although a decision on the Chief Judge’s dismissal motion and that of the New York Attorney General has not been formally issued, an argument date was set for May 24, 2018. Such a scheduling order would not have logically occurred if the dismissal motions were granted (already argued). But nothing surprises me anymore given the horrific ordeal I have survived thus far due to relentless retaliation for my public criticisms of our courts.

At the same time I am filing a motion for removal of Judge #41, Gerald Popeo from ongoing lower court proceedings. I have asked the NAACP to join me on that motion with the hope that other groups will follow, both conservative and liberal since this affects people of all political and religious beliefs. Portions of my formal request to the NAACP President is reprinted below.

The NAACP headquarters and Washington Bureau were closed for the past couple days due to the east coast storm but a director at the NAACP Hollywood Bureau responded by phone the same day with a referral to the NAACP legal department. If you would like to join us at the courthouse, upcoming arguments on May 24, 2018 or learn more about the escalating atrocities here, feel free to call our office at (315) 380-3420.

Formal request to NAACP President Derrick Johnson:

March 21, 2018

Dear Mr.  Johnson:

On February 12, 2015, the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct publicly censured an upstate city court judge for abusing his authority, sending litigants to jail without due process, and making injudicious remarks from the bench. Relevant complaints over time came from a district attorney, public defender and African-American lawyer, among others.

The injudicious remarks which a Commission judge found to be true included the following:

(to an African-American lawyer): “Do you know what black people from New York City call black people from upstate?” (no reply) “Country niggers.”

(to a prosecutor on at least two occasions): “Mr. Scully is the perfect cigar store Indian.”

(to a litigant upset with his unfair treatment): “You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to get off the bench and slap off your face. How about 30 days in jail for contempt, that’s hilarious too, isn’t it? What’s wrong with you? We done smirking?”

(to the same litigant ordered to return for a contempt sentence): “(You) gave me a nice, big smirk (while leaving court) … as if to say, blank you, Judge.”

As a successful and unblemished civil rights attorney for more than 23 years, and another ten as a litigant and parental advocate, I have displayed countless facial gestures during jury trials and other proceedings in both federal and state courts. A grin, smirk or other involuntary expression would be routine and rarely, if ever, considered contemptuous . . .

In January, 2010, (Judge Popeo) committed a former client of mine, the city’s first African-American Public Works Commissioner, to jail for non-appearance on a business nuisance case despite a compelling explanation. During his first time ever in jail, the former Commissioner Stephen Patterson attempted suicide after a belt was placed in his cell.

Among the reasons given for the suicide attempt was Mr. Patterson’s inability to find an attorney after a witch hunt was begun against me due to my litigation successes, civil rights forums and whistle blower reports critical of our courts. I was suspended from my civil rights practice due to an ex-secretary influenced by racist adversaries to create ethics issues in my office. Despite my criminal complaints, highly supported internal report and complaints from numerous other victims, she was not timely arrested or prosecuted.

This left me vulnerable to “witch hunt” ethics lawyers who were later allowed to resign quietly after a state inspector general discovered their falsified time sheets, the same ones declaring in confidential proceedings that my license reinstatement would be opposed so long as my public criticisms continued. Only many years later, after I was out of my law practice long enough, was this white ex-secretary finally picked up in Illinois and jailed on felony convictions involving later law offices. By that time, countless crimes and injustices occurred without accountability.

There was certainly sufficient provocation for the witch hunt. For example, I saved an African-American Public Safety Commissioner  . . . from an orchestrated indictment by a vengeful prosecutor, such charges as “misuse of city stationery.” I obtained a $333,820.32 record jury verdict on a federal civil rights case, Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004). I settled another at $90,000 for an African-American pastor harassed by the same city.

My work was not limited to race. I was among the earliest locally to win a sexual harassment case, Currie v Kowalewski, 842 F. Supp. 57 (NDNY 1994). I obtained a declaratory judgement invalidating a billion dollar casino compact against some of the nation’s finest law firms in both federal and state courts, Oneida Indian Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F.Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000); Peterman v Governor Pataki, 2004 Slip. Op. 51092(U). First Amendment was also one of my major concerns, sacrificing my position as city corporation counsel to successfully challenge a mayor’s gag order upon public employees, Koziol v Hanna, 107 F.Supp.2d 170 (NDNY 2000).

All that unblemished success changed when I began exposing corruption in our courts, the kind which harms minorities the most. My uncontested divorce became contested, and twelve years later it has become a personal holocaust with 40 trial jurists disqualified to date, a record by all accounts. One was removed from Family Court altogether after he admitted to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece, In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). A federal judge (Gary Sharpe) dismissed my last civil rights case with an anti-filing order despite his removal from an earlier case due to his claim of a human gene to sentence criminals which would not be discovered for another fifty years, United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (NDNY 2nd Cir. 2011).

The persecution has been relentless to discredit my public message, punish me into submission and protect a self-regulated judiciary from public disgrace. Its conduct commission refused to credit the “country niggers” remark because it would seriously harm its modern day reputation, not because it was untrue.

Now, because it set Gerald Popeo free, this racist judge has been assigned to finish me off as an “Acting Family Judge” in a forum where he makes a mockery of domestic violence prevention by his violent threats from the bench, where African-American fathers suffer debtor imprisonment to the extreme of being shot dead five times in the back while fleeing unarmed from a child support warrant. I spoke out on the latter event before national media at the Walter Scott funeral, spending a week there in South Carolina for reform purposes . . .

If such persecution can happen to a white civil rights attorney well north of the Mason-Dixon line, what kind of horror could occur to disadvantaged African-American fathers who, like Stephen Patterson, rely on me to protect them? That question is now at the forefront of this letter. I will be appearing before Judge Popeo this Friday, March 23, 2018 in Oneida County Family Court, Utica, New York. I will be filing a motion for his removal from my case with a request that the NAACP join in that motion as an intervenor or supporting presence in the courtroom.

In making this formal invitation, I am mindful of the work load which confronts you daily, but it presents an extraordinary opportunity for national attention and widespread benefit to your members and reputation . . . The chairman of the New York Commission dissented from the rationalizations used to excuse Judge Popeo’s racist remark to an African-American lawyer. He agreed instead with the findings of the judge who heard the evidence and voted in the minority for Popeo’s removal.

Now, as fate and the grace of God would have it, the Commission’s shocking 2015 decision is resurrected in a way least expected. Judge Popeo’s mere censure . . . allowed this travesty to occur. His remarks would have been contemptible even if related at a local bar, yet he made them as a judge in a black robe well into the 21st Century. Our courts are the last places where this can be tolerated in any form.

An intervenor motion by the NAACP supporting mine for Popeo’s removal would send a powerful message to our judiciary at a time when it must earn the greatest respect. So that my life sacrifices for a righteous cause were not in vain, I am including only a few articles regarding the Patterson cases for verification and ask that you favor me with a reply as soon as possible.

Very truly yours,

Leon R. Koziol, J.D.

2017 National Whistleblower Summit: Valuable Aid For Court Victims

img_0913
From left to right, Louis Clark, Executive Director and CEO of GAP (Government Accountability Project), Tom Devine, its Legal Director and Leon Koziol, Whistleblower Advocate


“You can’t fix something if you don’t know it’s broken. That’s just common sense.”  U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley

That is a quote taken from U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley, of Iowa at the 2015 National Whistleblower Day Celebration. He is the man at the center of investigations involving Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It is a quote which aptly depicts my ongoing mission to obtain justice and overdue reform for victims of divorce and family courts across the country.

I attended the 2017 Whistleblower Day Celebration and three-day Whistleblowers Summit in Washington D.C. this past week, having been interviewed by its sponsors at the Mott whistleblower law offices next to the Supreme Court. Among other things, I also participated in a dinner meeting of prominent whistleblowers at the National Press Club near the White House.

As this post is being made public, my 2017 corruption report regarding Title IV-D funding abuses is being delivered personally to Senator Grassley at a meeting set for 4 pm today at his Senate office. This report was previously delivered to a congressional oversight committee and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It depicts an epidemic harming parents in divorce and family courts in the states which is being censored and suppressed by special interests and bar associations.

During the three-day summit, I had occasion to exchange valuable information with best selling authors of books depicting whistleblower ordeals. They included Bradley Birkenfeld who spent three years in prison for exposing corruption in the Swiss banking system. On his release, he recovered a record $104 million under the IRS whistleblower program. His book entitled, Lucifer’s Bank, has striking resemblances to mine, Satan’s Docket, projected for publication this autumn.

A key goal of my book and travels is to bring legal protection for a unique group of citizens known as judicial whistleblowers. At present it does not exist, and as my case has amply demonstrated, the retributions can be horrific and utterly inhuman. Attendees at this summit were shocked at my ordeal as presented in a one-page book summary and eight-page chapter summary available by request at leonkoziol@parentingrightsinstitute.com.

Of course, I am not a legal aid, public defender or government funded entity. I am a high risk, confidential and specialized consultant bringing public attention to individual cases. I no longer practice civil rights law and do not give legal opinions, but I do have lawyers available as part of our referral program. Hence, I rely on donations and product purchases at www.leonkoziol.com.

This summit sponsored by The Government Accountability Project, ACORN 8 and other prominent organizations was extremely valuable and should be supported. This week I will feature key summaries such as this one to enlighten my followers on a growing epidemic in these courts so that reform and justice may be achieved for as many victims as possible.

Shocking Book Hopes to Ignite Parenting Revolution

IMG_1683
Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry: A Mom and Dad story conceived in Paris

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

It’s been over two months since my last posting on April 6, 2017. I have been focused on completing my first non-fiction book on the subject of corruption in America’s divorce industry. It is an alarming documentary which I hope will elicit nothing less than a parenting revolution for the sake of justice, overdue reforms and our children.

It is a truly profound literary work based on ten years in the reform movement and more than thirty years in the courts as a trial attorney, civil rights advocate and aggrieved parent. For those of you familiar with my ordeal, this is a must-read with immense educational value.

It was a project started in November, 2014 shortly after the Family Law Reform Conference sponsored by Dr. Joseph Sorge and Divorce Corp. in Washington D.C. It was during a flight to Paris where I was seeking to get international human rights agencies involved. In fact, Joe and I talked on the phone while in different parts of Europe engaged in the same mission of reform.

Some excerpts were published on this site in the spring of 2015 but they do not begin to reflect the caliber or quality of the finished product. Its completion was motivated by former New York Senate Leader Joseph Bruno. In his book released this past November entitled, Keep Swinging, Joe chronicled thirty years of corruption, but he blamed the criminal prosecution against him, in part, on apathy of the people to seek reform and justice.

Joe Bruno is quoted in my first chapter, one that I intend to reprint on this site on Fathers’ Day to give you a preview of the truly remarkable content which follows, 100,000 words altogether. At present, I have two publishers under consideration as I await a hopeful offer from a world class company. This was a phenomenally complex project.

Due to its compelling nature, there are footnotes and references throughout to back up my case for a federal investigation into Title IV-D funding and the corruption it has brought to our court systems and families. This is without question the most suppressed and censored epidemic of our day. My literary release aims to expose it so that serious protests will begin across the country.

When a model parent and judicial whistleblower is prevented from seeing his daughters on Fathers’ Day without any report of unfit behavior, not even an accusation of any criminal wrongdoing, while heroin addicts are being reunited for Mothers’ Day, it’s time to take serious action to a level never seen before.

With the completion of my twenty chapter manuscript, I will be making uncensored (raw) versions available on this site at a reduced cost of $20. Actually, the raw version is more valuable than the later published version which will be edited to exclude some material which could save litigants thousands of dollars in fees and court costs.

The book is bifurcated into two parts. The first (macro) part is largely a collection of stories from across the country obtained over the past ten years. Some are familiar, others are astounding, many are anonymous to protect the victims, but all of them make this a rapid-fire, page-turner. You or someone you know may even be in it.

These stories are conveyed not with depressing regurgitation but flavored by romance, humor, education and situations familiar to any parent in these courts. They come from both dad and mom perspectives with the latter derived from one I met in Paris. Hence it has international appeal even beyond English-speaking countries while touching upon most divorce and family court subjects, from custody and support to domestic violence and judicial misconduct.

The second (micro) half is a chronology of my personal ordeal. No one truly knows the full scope of persecution I endured for taking a conscientious stand against my profession. It’s the price I paid to make family courts more child-friendly and less lawyer-rewarding. This half is likely to attract lawyers, judges and politicians most because it contains renditions of high profile litigation contrasted by sweet stories about children which are sure to capture the heart.

There has never been a publication like this. If successful, it is my intent to start a new book about a victimized father in New York City and finish one about a mom in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. These are highly challenging assignments because no one wants to read about a he-said, she-said harangue in an isolated family case. Even Alec Baldwin was a failure in his book, A Promise to Ourselves, eight years ago. Media reports focused on his suicide attempts.

I apologize to all those callers I have not been able to help during these past six months of focused energy. I bear no animosities to anyone I may have offended along the way. Instead I am appealing to all fellow parents and court victims to join me in a reform effort to impact future generations. I truly believe that this book is the fateful reason for my suffering and sacrifices. They were not in vain after all. I will close with a relevant excerpt:

There were too many years of censorship by the Third Department (licensing and appeals court) which I compared to the Third Reich in my filings. True story. No mention was made of any of this in its reinstatement decision. I was simply responding with the same, if not greater level of boldness to government abuse, hence yielding a clear explanation behind the retaliation which was so severe and unjust.

 So if you’re still here reading this, you’re in good company. My work has been monitored by judges, politicians, investigators, doctors, lawyers, maybe even an Indian chief. I got the interest of Donald Trump’s chief counsel in 2016. As stated, a family court gag order on my website was removed after I challenged it in New York Supreme Court. Seven website postings were attached in their entirety to a confidential ethics report. Never once was I charged or sued regarding them.

Document Your Injustice on one of America’s Most Consulted Blog Sites Against Court Corruption !

place-your-corrupt-judge-or-lawyer-photo-along
Is your public servant in our Third Branch of Government observing his or her ethical duties under Judicial Codes to be “Dignified, Courteous and Patient” with your rights?

 

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

So you have a shocking case that reeks of injustice. What are you going to do about it? Just let it vanish without even a mention in any public record? Such apathy will only encourage more of the same, more victims and more brazen abuses of public office. Obviously our ethics commissions are not doing their jobs as part of a self-regulating branch of government. Therefore you have to rely on a private watchdog group.

Welcome to the Parenting Rights Institute and our highly monitored blog site Leon Koziol.com. Proven, experienced and highly qualified, we act where the commissions are failing us; reviewing, investigating and reporting on individual cases across the country. We do this through books, documentaries, reports and monitoring of individual cases in the very courtrooms where it is needed.

Due to positive feedback, we are now extending our period for publishing individual ordeals on this website, to attract vital interest, assistance, information and public accountability for you and similarly victimized parents. We’ve been around a long time, securing justice for those  abused in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Our website proves this throughout.

We feature a worldwide following, thousands of victims, advocates and informants who could provide input and collaboration to your case or cause. So it’s for your own benefit, and that of your children and families, that you read on and share this vital message.

Never before in American history have there been so many corrupt judges and unscrupulous lawyers without accountability. The reason is simple. Our universities are turning out a million lawyer candidates a year, at one time more than all the practicing attorneys nationwide. There are more than 300,000 in California and New York alone.

That’s a lot of lawyers and they have to work somewhere. The easiest place to land a job is family court. This is where apprentices learn their trade, where law firms send their worst attorneys, and incompetents make a living off your hard earnings. They still use such propaganda as our “children’s best interests” while they masquerade as parental experts.

The ones who can’t make it in this glut-fest often end up on the bench. Once there, another gang of predators is unleashed from their cages: evaluators, psychiatrists, counselors, therapists, investigators, case workers, and even the latest concoction known as “divorce coaches,” all with differing opinions on how to raise your own children.

It’s more than a jungle, it’s now an epidemic. A Supreme Court Justice once described these constitution-free tribunals as “Kangaroo Courts”, see In re Gault, 387 US 1 at pp 27-28. No one wants to protest or invest in a reform movement, so the corruption goes on and you are its victims, a gold mine well guarded by bar associations and special interests.

Well, finally there is a real solution, a remedy to these useless ethics or oversight commissions which favor their players while targeting the whistle blowers, i.e., yours truly. It’s pay-back time for your children, your pain and your livelihood, a chance for you to hold a judge or lawyer publicly accountable here at Leon Koziol.com.

Over the past ten years, we have exposed vast corruption, traveled from Hawaii to Paris in a conscientious effort to end human rights violations which routinely occur here. Our site is filled with examples despite a gross lack of funding. I have had over 35 trial judges disqualified and helped remove a few altogether from the bench, always working on more. No one can boast such an achievement.

Now it’s your turn. We have perfected a process of reviewing case files submitted from around the country. We distill the legalese into publications on our website. To date, we have generated over 200,000 views and countless followers worldwide. This allows us to gain immediate results on any Google search of our tagged villains. Their names propagate to the top pages to bring public accountability and even improved treatment in court..

For a limited time only, we are offering to do this for individuals at a low, low (total) cost of $250. That’s a phenomenal bargain when considering a single lawyer consultation may cost you more. Your case will receive my personal attention, and I have spent over 30 years litigating in these courts. I can keep this cost so low because I am providing no legal advice or lawyer service. I am providing true justice outside the court rooms.

So order your case publication now while this offer lasts. Call our office at (315) 380-3420 or me personally at (315) 796-4000. Remember, I am a victim too and your most trusted advocate or friend. Despite my professional reputation taking on powerful people, I don’t bite, unless of course you are an abusive judge or self-serving lawyer. In my case, they included a demented judge whose gag order was removed from this website and a pedophile custody judge removed altogether from the bench!

Please share this post with fellow victims or family members, and make their day.

God bless America’s parents !

Parents Seriously at Risk: Advocacy Group to Protect Families and Children

Fascinating television clip depicts David and Goliath battles of Dr. Leon Koziol as a New York trial attorney prior to assuming role as Director of the Parenting Rights Institute

From the PRI Director

The Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) was founded in 2010 as an advocacy group for moms, dads and families victimized by abusive divorce and family courts across the country. An office was opened in New York with a Court Program to assist poorly represented or self represented parties. It featured a seminar lecture and five part reading program with court forms and transcripts to educate parents and prevent serious financial and personal harm. Its updated version is available at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com or by ordering it from our office at (315) 380-3420.

The work of the Institute expanded in the years since. A planning session was conducted at the Plaza Hotel at Central Park in Manhattan attended by lawyers, former judges and parental advocates. In 2011 we conducted a parenting convention at a hotel conference room attended by activists from different parts of the country. Five time Super Bowl winner Tim McKyer was a featured speaker. In April, 2012 we sponsored a lobby initiative in Congress. Two months later, a rally was held at the federal appeals court at Foley Square in Manhattan to support the parental rights case, Parent v New York, presented by Dr. Leon Koziol.

In 2013, Dr. Koziol was among the few selected to give testimony on behalf of the Parenting Rights Institute before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption at Pace University. That testimony can be found on Leon’s personal website at http://www.leonkoziol.com and it was cited by a lawyer committee in Albany to suppress and censor his reform efforts. Corruption exposed or publicized at the Moreland hearings included Leon’s pedophile custody judge, Bryan Hedges, removed from his case for “political espionage” and from the bench one year later for admitting to sexual misconduct upon the judge’s handicapped, five year old niece. He also exposed fictitious college degrees used by his replacement Judge Daniel King to impose draconian support and custody orders in retaliation.

In 2014, Dr. Koziol participated in a video documentary produced by Dr. Joseph Sorge of Divorce Corp focused on child support abuses, marginalization of parents for profit. These abuses have remained without real accountability and causing taxpayers mounting expenses for their criminal and family court systems. A censorship process was commenced by a lawyer ethics committee against Leon citing the video as its source. That process was vigorously challenged on First Amendment grounds but it prevented him from making a formal presentation at the Divorce Corp Family Law Reform Conference in Washington D.C.

Today we have achieved a record for holding lawyers, judges and family court predators accountable where our political ethics commissions are failing us. We have traveled as far away as Hawaii, California, Nashville, Carolinas, Canada and Paris seeking recourse for parent rights violations. Children are being abused, needlessly alienated and exploited for profit in a manner never seen before in human history. The media is ignoring a growing epidemic at the root of our societal problems, moral decay and worker productivity. Bar associations and special interests anxious to preserve a trillion dollar gold mine are suppressing reform, true accountability and parent advocacy groups such as the PRI.

A documentary published this month by Dr. Koziol and PRI produced immediate reactions from powerful adversaries. Entitled “Family Court Epidemic in Rural America,” it exposed shocking aspects of unmitigated corruption in divorce and family courts which is escalating all over the country. These are plain talk presentations publicized through You-Tube and viral sites everywhere that eventually work their way to the top of Google searches regarding the lawyers, judges and entities we are investigating and exposing. In this way the Parenting Rights Institute has become a citizen’s commission for judicial accountability. We are doing the vital work of those who are neglecting their paid public duties. In short we have become the Judicial Watch or NRA for abused families.

However, we cannot effectively advocate without resources. Currently we refer legal representation to trusted outside attorneys. We would like to hire in-house counsel and investigatory staff to properly assist victims in their individual cases. A professional video crew could bolster publishing efforts while employed to support formal complaints to government agencies. Our goal is to monitor court proceedings, publish books and documentaries and lobby Congress and our courts for reform and proper accountability. We have a petition for writ pending before the United States Supreme Court and are prepared to file another with co-petitioning victims (joiners) from around the country. Indeed we have done remarkable things with a fledgling volunteer staff and nominal donations which cannot keep up with expenses.

These are only some of the strategies underway and detailed in a business plan which is available to potential donors and investors. Accordingly we are appealing publicly to you for help. You may be in a position to join our efforts or invest personally. You may also know of a business, estate or philanthropist who can provide the needed financial support. Our potential cannot be denied. The proof is found throughout our website pages at Leon Koziol.com or the Institute. We have overcome the gag orders placed on these sites by way of an extraordinary mandamus action concluded recently in New York Supreme Court. As the thirty second television clip here shows, our PRI Director Leon Koziol has won numerous high profile cases, but this “War on Parents” is clearly his greatest challenge. Help us help you. Invest in our Institute. Download, share and e-mail this message. You can also chat directly with Leon at (315) 796-4000.

Join Supreme Court Petition for Shared Parenting and Judicial Accountability

 

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

I am proposing an extraordinary writ from the Supreme Court to hear its first ever shared parenting case mandated by the Constitution and proper accountability for the routine violations of basic rights in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Unlike the standard petitions for writ under Rule 14 of the Supreme Court, I will be filing under Rule 2o. It is a rarely used form of petition “in aid of the court’s jurisdiction.” In this case I am maintaining that undue obstacles put in the way of parents in our federal and state domestic courts ultimately impair access to our high court contrary to due process and Article III of the Constitution.

I will file for this writ as a parent and victim of retributions by our divorce and family courts but only if a sufficient number join. You don’t have to be a litigant or victimized parent but you must have incurred some kind of harm from this system to justify your participation.You can do so at no charge although we rely on donations or purchases at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. You will join as a separate petitioner and not as a party represented by me. I am not acting as a legal advisor. This is a bold and timely petition seeking greater access for parents before our high court.I will ask that a Special Master be appointed to investigate an epidemic in these courts with hearings held around the country should the Court accept this petition.

I will be publishing a series of posts here at www.leonkoziol.com to explain the content and objectives over the next few weeks. If a sufficient number of parents or court victims join, I will prepare the petition for viewing. You can retain counsel if you like and a period will be set aside from the time of publication here for you to withdraw your participation in the event you disapprove of any aspect of that completed petition. You can also offer input or modifications but keep in  mind that I have little assistance and resources. My time is better spent here and your time can be ideally applied to viral assistance, recruitment and donations.  The tentative issues follow:

QUESTIONS PRESENTED

1) Has the Supreme Court rendered itself inaccessible to petitioners and the vast majority of our citizens in violation of due process and Article III of the Constitution?

2) Has the Supreme Court erected and ratified onerous obstacles to federal court jurisdiction for parents victimized in divorce and family courts contrary to due process, a fundamental liberty interest and genuine principles of federalism?

3) Has the Supreme Court encouraged or justified private remedies for law abiding citizens to vindicate their constitutional rights when its duties were abandoned here?

Let’s Make History: Parents Joining to File Writ in Supreme Court

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Are you concerned about the state of parent-child relations in our divorce and family courts? Have you gone there trusting that justice will be served only to learn all too late that orchestrated controversy led you to the brink of bankruptcy? Are you aware that your constitutionally protected parental rights are being eroded with an ultimate goal of having the state assume control of our families?

Parents are 150 million strong in this country, yet we have little voice in our government. Not a mention was made of our struggles in either political convention or in any presidential debate. Every aspect of our private lives has been infringed through state power exceeding that of the NSA, IRS or FBI. Our children have lost college funds and their health to lawyers and court appointed psychologists, see i.e. Universal Health v United States, No. 15-7 (6/16/16)(teen girl referred for mental treatment suffered a stoke leading to her death due to incompetent drug administration).

Clearly an epidemic is underway warranting the attention of our high court. There are dedicated advocates doing our best to reverse this trend. However it is a trillion dollar industry protected by special interests. Many parents, fed up with this system of mandatory custody and Title IV-D incentives have turned to our federal courts for relief. But in virtually all courts across the country our cases have been dismissed. The Supreme Court rejected at least three of them at a single conference on September 26, 2016. Over 750 petitions were supposedly reviewed at that conference.

Of the 10,000 petitions filed each year, 9,900 are rejected. While abortion, gun rights and capital crimes are regularly heard, not one shared parenting case has ever been heard. The last time a related issue was taken up, it was to explain how a father could be properly jailed for child support without an attorney, Turner v Rogers, 564 US ___ (2011). The last time custody was addressed, it was in Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000), but that case focused on grandparent rights.

In Michael H. v Gerald D., 491 US 10 (1989), the Court turned down a biological father’s rights despite good child relationships based on a statute which presumed the legal father to be the husband when a child is born during an adulterous marriage. In Santosky v Kramer, 455 US 745 (1982), the Court ruled unconstitutional a family court process, but that was in the context of terminating parental rights. In Caban v Mohammed, 441 US 380 (1979), the Court ruled that a father had equal rights with a mother to contest adoption. That pretty much sums up the importance of our nation’s moms and dads in the eyes of the Supreme Court in modern times.

As a result I have pressed on with reform efforts despite all the sacrifices and set-backs. Within 24 hours of my latest denial on Monday, I filed for another personal writ before the Supreme Court, raising new issues concerning its accessibility for parents across America. To that end I contacted a Supreme Court clerk in August to confirm that an extraordinary writ could be sought under Rule 20 should my petition be denied. That option is still available but I will not undertake the complexities of filing unless I can get thousands to join. Joinder is not allowed after a petition is filed although supporting briefs can be offered.

Of course we can expect detractors and pontificators. But until the retributions for my reform efforts, I maintained a successful and unblemished constitutional rights practice for more than 23 years. My achievements on 60 Minutes and New York Times can be found at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. Put simply, history can be made with your participation.

I am asking fellow victims, current and potential family court litigants and concerned citizens to set up and circulate an on-line petition under the following issues which can be modified or supplemented:

QUESTIONS PRESENTED

1) Has the Supreme Court rendered itself inaccessible to petitioners and the vast majority of our citizens in violation of due process and Article III of the Constitution?

2) Has the Supreme Court erected and ratified onerous obstacles to federal court jurisdiction for parents victimized in divorce and family courts contrary to due process, a fundamental liberty interest and genuine principles of federalism?

3) Has the Supreme Court encouraged or justified private remedies for law abiding citizens to vindicate their constitutional rights when its duties were abandoned here?
