HAPPY NEW YEAR! Family Judge Sued for Lewd Conduct by Court Attorney and Clerk: Reads Like Parent v New York

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In August, 2017, Family Judge Richard Miller was removed from his duties on the bench and reassigned by the New York Unified Court System.  No details were released at the time to explain why. Now comes the revelation that he forced his court attorney and clerk to view pornography including nude photos of a co-worker. Among other “family friendly” duties, Judge Miller made sexual demands and even asked his clerk (Gallagher) to engage in sex acts with an elected official to curry political favors.

Yes, it’s all there in a federal court complaint filed on December 21, 2018 which reads, verbatim in some segments, like my precedent seeking action on behalf of abused family court litigants in Parent v New York, 786 F. Supp. 2d 516  (NDNY 2011). Indeed, so closely does the complaint pattern mine that one might easily conclude that it was used as a template by the law firm which filed the action last week.

Of course the difference is that the plaintiffs in my case were litigant parents whereas the current one features court employees. Judges have fashioned a special rule for themselves known as Absolute Judicial Immunity from lawsuits by litigants whereas they get no such protection from lawsuits by subordinates even if the misconduct is identical.

For example Michigan Judge Wade McCree was given immunity in a federal lawsuit brought by a father in a child support case whose opponent got pregnant by the married McCree in chambers while presiding over the case. Such immunity carries over from the King of England and finds no authority in our Constitution.

So committed was I to removing that immunity that I filed four federal lawsuits which earned a filing restriction by a federal judge, Gary “not so” Sharpe. Gary was removed by a federal appeals court from a case due to a human gene he used for decision making which he claimed would not be discovered by scientific experts for another fifty years. The appeals court found his bizarre conduct to harm public confidence in the judiciary.

Yet Judge Gary Sharpe was never impeached, he did not resign in shame as he should have, and he refused to step off my case afterward, see United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011). The Cossey ruling is one of the few in which the decision itself was found to be sufficient grounds for bias and disqualification.

Another case which illustrates the unjust disparity between litigant and employee in judge accountability is Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir 2010). This case featured my administrative judge and ex-custody judge, Bryan Hedges. They were successfully sued by a chief family court clerk based on unlawful retaliation for her refusal to engage in “political espionage.” She recovered $600,000.00.

Hedges was removed from my case in 2011 and from the bench altogether one year later after he admitted to sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece, see In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). His co-defendant, Judge James “Bond” Tormey is still on the bench even after assigning 41 trial jurists to my originally uncontested divorce case. Over a 12 year period, nearly half were removed by motion due to bias or misconduct.

Like the 2017 reassignment of Family Judge Richard Miller, no reasons were given, and like Tormey, Miller is still a judge hauling in close to $200,000.00 in annual salary. The “immoral” of this story is that a lawsuit by an employee is acceptable but one against a judge containing similar claims is “rambling” and even “incomprehensible.”

This is one of the many reasons why I have asked fellow victims to join me in a march on Washington, May 3, 2019, to start in front of the White House and ending on the Supreme Court steps. Get the details on the 6-minute video here produced by an NBC production crew. A more startling one is forthcoming, ironically on the subject of judge misconduct across America. Look for it on this site, Leon Koziol.com and spread the word.

Civil rights advocate targeted by thieving ethics lawyers, Facebook and now a publicly censured Judge Popeo

Parenting Rights Institute

First it was a trio of ethics lawyers fired for falsifying time sheets, then Facebook, certain mainstream media, and now a publicly censured judge is joining the gang of liberals persecuting a once prominent civil rights attorney in New York.

It all began in 2008 when Dr. Leon Koziol set out to expose corruption in divorce and family courts in an effort to replace antiquated custody and support laws with progressive shared parenting. The retributions achieved epic proportion after he supported Donald Trump BEFORE election day, going so far as to file a 2016 motion for disqualification of Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg due to her anti-Trump political interviews from Supreme Court chambers.

Dr. Leon Koziol employs the alternative “Juris Doctor” for his professional name because an Albany, New York appeals court prohibited him from using the term “attorney” in a six month suspension order. Such a prohibition conveniently removes the credibility of his corruption reports and reform message. The license suspension was long completed in 2013, and it was caused by a secretary influenced to create ethics issues in Dr. Koziol’s law office. That secretary was eventually convicted of felonies committed on later victims.

2013 was also the year that Dr. Koziol testified regarding widespread judge and lawyer misconduct before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption at Pace University. It was the same year that ethics lawyers appointed by the same court announced to a panel of justices in closed proceedings that they would oppose returning Koziol to his civil rights practice so long as his public criticisms continued. It was a year when custody judge, Bryan Hedges, disqualified by Koziol motion in 2011, was permanently removed from the family court bench for admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

That same year, the same ethics lawyers were allowed by their judge superiors to resign quietly after a state inspector general uncovered their falsified time sheets. They were never prosecuted, criminally or ethically, and still allowed to practice law in New York’s capital district. This is in contrast to one Koziol client who was immediately prosecuted as a felon for obtaining a $16 city gas card reimbursement two hours after wrongful discharge. He was cleared by a jury before obtaining a consequentially large civil rights recovery.

These were only some of the shocking revelations brought before the Moreland Commission. Within weeks of that testimony, Dr. Koziol lost all contact with his daughters due to a family judge, Daniel King, who was reported for fabricating college degrees in child support decisions. Judge King could find no evidence of unfit parenting, indeed there was never any child protection agency report, so he based his decision on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (a wedding toast) among other demented concoctions. He even imposed a gag order on this site which was removed only after Dr. Koziol sued him in New York Supreme Court on First Amendment violations

And so it’s been, a suspension of a law license exceeding eight years, one year longer than a felony disbarment period, without so much as an accusation of any criminal wrongdoing. And no child contact for over four years! It is an unprecedented ordeal and a judicial record by most accounts. But that’s not the only record en route to shattering the glass ceiling of judicial immunity. Over 40 trial jurists have been assigned so far to Dr. Koziol’s originally uncontested divorce since it was filed in 2006.

With each assignment, grounds for disqualification arose immediately, causing one judge after another to recuse himself or herself at the outset. For others who pressed on in violation of judicial ethics, misconduct inevitably reared itself, and removal was secured through motion filings. Rather than accepting the systemic retaliation and the state’s role in all this, judges are now faulting the victim of their corruption.

The latest one is Gerald “Rocky” Popeo (Judge #41) who was publicly censored in 2015 by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct after a hearing judge found that he had joked about downstate blacks and upstate “country niggers.” Popeo was also found guilty of making a violent threat to a litigant from the bench. The public censure encompassed serial contempt and jail sentences in violation of due process. However, much more was never reported or excused by that Commission, and this sadistic, self-loving and mentally challenged judge was never even removed.

For example, a former African-American city official and Koziol client attempted suicide in a jail cell after Judge Popeo presided over a racist targeting of his night club. All nuisance and liquor violations were dismissed by a jury after Judge Popeo re-committed the suicide prospect to jail from the hospital where he was in recovery. Prior to the targeting, this same African-American activist obtained a jury verdict of $333,000.00 in a race discrimination case against some of the same people now behind the Koziol witch hunt. It was argued by Dr. Koziol before a current Supreme Court Justice, Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004).

In the summer of 2017, Popeo initiated a heated exchange with Koziol at a local bar, witnessed by a U.S. Marine veteran. It was based on Gerry’s belief that Leon had something to do with the 2015 misconduct prosecution against him. Despite all that, like his denials of racism reported by an African-American attorney, Judge Popeo denied that the bar conversation even occurred. He did so as an “Acting Family Court Judge” assigned to Dr. Koziol’s custody and support cases. His peculiar assignment came at a time when a series of editorials and full page advertisements by Dr. Koziol critical of the judiciary were featured in the Syracuse, Utica and Watertown, New York newspapers.

And despite even that, the same Gerald Popeo denied Dr. Koziol’s motion for disqualification this past week, ruling that he can be impartial. Since his assignment in February, 2018, Popeo has continued to deny Koziol all contact with his daughters. He now stands ready to jail him on orchestrated (unlawful) child support debts. The Leon Koziol story was recently documented in a shocking new book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.  It is a must-read for all court participants and good government advocates, available on-line at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

With this backdrop, can anyone continue to be shocked by Donald Trump’s condemnation of federal judges who interfere with national security decisions of our elected president? The Leon Koziol story shows how the elected goal of “draining the swamp” cannot be limited to the executive or legislative branches. A federal judge who dismissed Dr. Koziol’s civil rights case against his persecutors is all the proof we Americans need to support President Trump.

That federal judge, Gary Sharpe, was removed from a case by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for announcing a human gene for decision making that would not be discovered by scientists for “another fifty years.” United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d   82 (2nd Cir. 2011). Never mind the swamp, that sort of lunacy on the bench rivals Hitler’s Nazi Germany. It also presents an important message for all whistle blowers like Edward Snowden: Stay in some free country where it’s safe!

Please don’t simply read this post and move on. The important information just received came to you at a high price. Share it with those who can help us fight this growing corruption in America. The censorship of our values and Trump supporters is very real as proven again today by Fox News headlines. They featured a black woman duo known as “Diamond and Silk” who were censored by Facebook due to the pro-Trump content of their popular site.

Parenting Rights Group Seeks Federal Investigation of Family Courts

Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

The Parenting Rights Institute has made a formal request to Congress for a comprehensive investigation of our nation’s family courts. The text of this request is also contained in a full page newspaper advertisement for my new book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.

I continue to seek major donors and investors for the Parenting Rights Institute due to the vital work we do, the accountability and oversight which are grossly lacking in these courts. We are a fledgling “Judicial Watch” for the divorce industry. But we can do nothing for countless victims without the resources to investigate and report on their individual cases.

Free keyboarding from the comfort of your homes to no one who cares is getting us nowhere. I am hoping to have sponsors of similar advertisements in communities across the country to move our representatives to action. Kindly share this mission statement and support it with your contributions, book purchases or our offerings at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

I can be contacted at our office at (315) 380-3420 or personally at (315) 796-4000.

This is the text and photos (above and below) appearing in the full page advertisement, page B8, of Sunday October 29, 2017 edition of the Utica (New York) Observer Dispatch. The on-line version will remain available to all of my followers and interested persons for another two weeks. You are welcome to duplicate this text in your own advertisements or in letters of support to the same congressional leaders

Request to Congress for Investigation of Family Courts

To:  Hon. Chuck Grassley, Chair, Senate Judiciary Committee

Hon. Robert Goodlatt, Chair, House Judiciary Committee

Hon. Trey Gowdy, Chair, Oversight Committee on Government Reform

From: Leon Koziol, J.D., Director, Parenting Rights Institute

Gentlemen:

Amid recent probes by your committees into the conduct of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch regarding last year’s election, I am asking you to consider a review of Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, more particularly the vast abuse of federal funds in our family courts.

While your oversight objectives are commendable, I believe the American people are highly frustrated by the constant focus on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The election ended long ago, and it is time to move on, to focus on the issues that truly impact the rest of us.

There is a growing epidemic in this country which has been ignored and even protected by the Justice Department and bar associations generally. Our federal government is rewarding states with billions of dollars based on the number and magnitude of “child support” orders they issue.

On its surface, “child support” appears laudable, but in practice, judicial impartiality has been sacrificed to the almighty buck. State courts are inciting needless controversy, alienating moms and dads from their offspring, fueling domestic violence and veteran suicides, and wasting tax dollars to enrich other beneficiaries of a dysfunctional “custody” system.

Lawyers and lawyers on the bench should not be allowed anywhere near sensitive parental disputes because they are programmed to litigate. They bring gas to the sparks while family assets, business interests and college funds are plundered in the “best interests” of our children. Shared parenting and mediation alternatives have been thwarted because they are not lucrative.

In March, 2015, Obama’s Justice Department issued a report condemning criminal courts in Ferguson, Missouri due to excessive fines raised through false arrests and other civil rights violations. I made the same parallels to excessive fees and family court “awards” in reports to your oversight committee and Loretta Lynch one year later.

Our Supreme Court has declared parenting to be the “oldest liberty interest” protected by our Constitution. I emphasized that to national media and your Democrat colleague, James Clyburn, at the funeral of Walter Scott, an unarmed father shot dead in the back five times for fleeing a child support warrant. Government is now killing for money.

Despite all this, the harm to our health, education, productivity and law enforcement continues. We remain the most litigious and imprisoned society in the free world, and if reform is ever to occur, it must begin here because children and future generations are at risk.

Oversight in family court is best described as the foxes guarding our chicken coup with whistleblowers like me persecuted to the point of losing my children, livelihood and liberties. After 23 unblemished years as a civil rights attorney, another ten as a model parent, it became a scene right out of the former Soviet Union.

In July of this year, I was interviewed by sponsors of the Whistleblower Summit in Washington due to the horrific nature of my ordeal. It has now been captured in a book entitled, Satan’s Docket. I have also documented the ordeals of parents across the country. I am enclosing a copy so you can gain a real world perspective on this epidemic.,

Your committees have helped enact whistleblower protections for those who have uncovered waste in diverse areas of federal spending. They may have saved taxpayers billions of dollars in recent decades. However there remains no protection for judicial whistleblowers.

Indeed when I sought relief in our federal courts, I was subjected to serial rulings designed to kill the messenger of reform. In my book, I compared it to a Rodney King beating with the fists and batons replaced by orders and edicts. Either punishment can achieve the same fatal end.

Donald Trump is attacked any time he criticizes a federal judge despite a Supreme Court member (Ginsburg) who attacked him from chambers as a private citizen. A federal judge in my case was removed from an earlier one by an appeals court due to a human gene he used to make decisions, one that would not be discovered by scientists “for another 50 years.”

I am not making this up any more than Hitler did in the day. You can “discover” Gary Sharpe’s gene in United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82. New York Republican Leader Joe Bruno condemned the same Judge Sharpe in his book, Keep Swinging, after a failed political prosecution which cost taxpayers over $15 million.

Bruno’s senate secretary was given immunity to testify against him despite some $100,000 she stole from government. My ex-secretary did the same after being influenced to orchestrate ethics issues against me. In a 2012 report, bolstered by her own immunity, I detailed how she was operating her own divorce practice. She was not finally arrested and jailed until 2016.

To hold the “foxes” accountable, I have opened a fledgling “Judicial Watch” known as Parenting Rights Institute. But I lack the resources to save victims such as Tom Ball who burned himself alive at a New Hampshire family court, or a police investigator who chose a different form of protest through murder-suicide and a $2 million wrongful death recovery against my city.

If this is not a silent and suppressed epidemic, what is? In his opening address at the 2015 Whistleblower Summit, Senator Chuck Grassley declared plainly, “You can’t fix something if you don’t know it’s broken.” Well now you know.

Shocking New Book on Family Court Corruption Now Available: Satan’s Docket

 

IMG_1039

Today we are introducing the new Parenting Rights Institute website and its feature book release, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. Nine months in the works and based on thirty years of litigation experience, this book takes you through the horrific ten year ordeal of judicial whistleblower, Dr. Leon Koziol, which forced him to seek international protection in Paris.

However this book is much more. It can be considered a crash course in divorce or family court, your education to an epidemic that is harming our children, families, schools, workplaces and health as a nation. It was a herculean project, years in the research and writing phase with a 108,000 word manuscript completed only last month.

At present this book is the hands of a major publisher with a possible release date early next year. In the meantime it has generated inquiries from a documentary producer and will hopefully lead to an overdue investigation by Congress or the Justice Department into the federal funding abuses in our state domestic relations courts. We will keep you posted on that objective.

While all this was in progress, so were the many family judge elections across the country which promise to expand this epidemic and bring even more harm to future generations. One such election in Oneida County, New York sparked the early release of this uncensored version of Satan’s Docket. Its author resides in that county and became troubled by the lack of vital discourse on the real issues in these courts. In coming weeks, he hopes to change all that through this unprecedented literary work.

Satan’s Docket was authored in an extraordinary way given the difficulty of attracting interest to such a stressful and complex subject. It was a lesson learned from Alec Baldwin and his 2009 book release, A Promise to Ourselves. That memoir failed to achieve its highly anticipated book sales. Indeed mainstream media was most focused on excerpts relating to his suicide attempts during an incendiary divorce with actress Kim Basinger. Dr. Koziol was invited to Alec’s book signing in Manhattan and shared his ordeal with Baldwin’s agent at Creative Artists in California. More recently, crucial advice was obtained from best selling authors at the Whistleblower Summit and Conference this past summer in Washington D.C.

The title, Satan’s Docket, was a risky selection but has gained wide support. It was proven ironically to be a well selected title after discovering Bradley Birkenfeld’s recent book release at the Summit entitled, Lucifer’s Bank. Mr. Birkenfeld was a whistleblower of the Swiss bank industry who suffered retaliation by a jail sentence of 30 months for tax evasion. On his release he recovered a record $104 million under the new IRS Whistleblower Protection Act. Another new book release at this Summit featured a woman lawyer disbarred for exposing court corruption in New Hampshire. Her book is titled, The Dark Side.

So it would appear that Satan’s Docket is right on target. It was also inspired by former New York Senate Leader Joseph Bruno, whose memoir, Keep Swinging,  was released in November, 2016. Dr. Koziol’s book features two equal length halves. Part One is the Corruption segment of his subtitle. It is the macro part which describes a divorce and family court epidemic nationwide. Part Two is the Carnage half which focuses on his personal ordeal. In order to keep a broad section of readers glued to this book, a collection of shocking stories from around the country is spiced with romance, humor and horror in places ranging from Hawaii to Paris. It is a book well worth reading at a nominal cost that can save you college tuition and untold lawyer fees. It may be the best investment you will make in years.

Please share this post with as many parents, bloggers, media representatives and court victims that you can.

Support False Claims Lawsuit Against Family Court Facilitators

Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

 As part of its mission to protect parents, children and extended families from abusive and lucrative practices in our nation’s divorce and family courts, the Parenting Rights Institute is seeking financial, legal and expert assistance to prosecute the first ever False Claims Act (FCA) suit against court facilitators who reap huge profits from federal Title IV-D funding.

If you are a follower of http://www.leonkoziol.com, then you are fortunate to have free access to valuable information regarding the suicides, injustices, needless evaluations and parental alienation caused by a federal law which mandates the naming of a custodial parent in order for states to receive billions of dollars in federal money. Because there is no real protection for judicial whistleblowers, the abuses here have never been properly investigated.

Yet we see those abuses in courts across America: child attorneys appointed to pit parents against their children, lucrative conflict in place of agreement and mediation, and political referrals to countless court facilitators who benefit wrongfully from this massive funding law. As Adolph Hitler once stated in his book, Mein Kampf, if you can get the people believing that government is acting for the benefit of their children, they will “happily” give up their rights.

And like the early days of the Third Reich in Nazi Germany, no one is questioning the similar propaganda long asserted in these courts that our family judges and their government contractors (i.e. court appointed evaluators, lawyers and providers) are acting at all times in the “best interests” of our children. Grave statistics are showing that the time is long overdue for an FCA lawsuit that holds such profiteers accountable.

Last year about this time, I had a case pending on a petition for writ before the Supreme Court entitled Koziol v United States District Court, Case No. 15-1513. It was a mandamus/prohibition case challenging federal courts for their failure to hold state courts accountable for federal constitutional violations. In a rare move, our high court accepted my motion for disqualification (recusal) of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg due to her politicking against Donald Trump. However it was treated as a “suggestion” and never expressly ruled upon.  

One of the cases belatedly cited due to its last minute release was Universal Health Services v United States ex rel Escobar, 579 US ___ (June 16, 2016). In that case, our high court permitted an FCA case to proceed against a state health provider due to unqualified professionals who caused the death of a 17 year old girl. The facts were not unlike many of the providers appointed by state judges to treat our children and needlessly stressed moms or dads.

Indeed, in my very own family court case, an un-elected support magistrate (James Gorman) conferred upon me a PhD which I did not earn so that a higher support obligation could be ordered for federal funding purposes. His reviewing family judge (Daniel King) ruled that the error was “harmless” and then gave me a Master degree in its place which I also did not earn. In short, false child support claims are being ordered through evidentiary fictions such as “imputed income” to gain federal money for state courts and contractors.

Accordingly, we are seeking support for a precedent case to be filed in the District of Columbia federal court with whistleblower plaintiffs from different states participating. The beauty of an FCA lawsuit is that such plaintiffs are confidential (sealed) at the filing stage. The U.S. Justice Department is then required to evaluate the lawsuit for purposes of prosecuting it on behalf of the victims and whistleblowers.

In my case, identity no longer matters because my named abusers and adversaries have already retaliated against me in every sadistic way. But for others, such an action is known as a qui tam lawsuit, meaning that the proven whistleblowers may receive a percentage of monies recovered by the Justice Department. This lawsuit could not come at a better time with a new administration anxious to cut needless spending while draining the swamp.  

To give you a feel for the kind of recovery which may occur, the state of New York recently settled a Medicaid fraud lawsuit for $10 billion. During my recent participation in the National Whistleblower Summit and Civil Rights Conference in Washington D.C., I met Bradley Birkenfeld who recovered $1.4 million individually in an IRS whistleblower act case after serving nearly three years in prison in retaliation. His book entitled, Lucifer’s Bank, turned out to be surprisingly similar to mine, Satan’s Docket, which will hopefully be ready for publication this fall.

Of course, to make such a lawsuit possible, funding and resources are needed. If you are “broke” with nothing serious to offer, you will only be hurting our cause by contacting us with endless war stories. If you are seriously committed to raising the funds for a qualified review, research and legal representation behind this lawsuit, feel free to contact us at Parenting Rights Institute at (315) 380-3420.

Yes, my adversaries may have destroyed all my means for assisting victims of government abuse, but my accomplishments speak louder than their retributions. They include a New York Supreme Court action in which I successfully invalidated a billion dollar casino operation.

Law Enforcement’s Role in Judicial Whistleblowing and First Amendment

img_0920
Boston Area Homicide Detective Ken Williams exchanges valuable information with Parental Advocate Dr. Leon Koziol regarding judicial whistleblowing cases at a dinner meeting near the White House in Washington D.C.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Continuing with our series on the Whistleblowers Summit and Civil Rights Conference in Washington D.C. last week, I had occasion to network with a variety of experts on the subject including Ken Williams, a Boston area homicide detective. He provided valuable insights from a law enforcement perspective on how to protect oneself from false prosecutions and assembling evidence for valid convictions.

On conclusion of this particular panel discussion, I asked whether there was any special protocol for investigations of judicial corruption. I cited my pedophile custody judge, Bryan Hedges, widespread misconduct ignored in my case, Operation Greylord in Chicago where federal judges were prosecuted while I was in law school, Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo, New York Supreme Court Judges sent to prison for soliciting custody and divorce bribes in 2007, and the Kids for Cash Scandal in Pennsylvania.

Mr. Williams could relate no particular protocol in judge cases but seemed to recognize that this was a very sensitive area for judicial whistle blowers. Another speaker, civil rights attorney Stephen Kohn, an expert in this field, recently published a book which I purchased and discussed with him. In that book, Steve paints a scary picture of whistleblowers who routinely lose their jobs, reputation, homes and life’s savings as a result of this crucial exercise of First Amendment rights in a self-governing nation.

However I could find few examples in either his book or among conference attendees which exceeded mine, the retributions inflicted upon me for exposing corruption in the divorce industry. My ordeal is necessarily detailed in my upcoming book, Satan’s Docket, a memoir of my civil rights litigation over a thirty year period which also provides a valuable handbook for parents impacted in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Ultimately, through this book, I am hoping to secure a federal investigation into my case and reform of Title IV-D funding abuses to make shared parenting a reality.

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.
