Another Family Court Related Suicide! The Time For Talk is Over. Join Our Action Plan to Make a Stand!

One of the many fitting posts on-line dedicated to Family Court’s latest statistic, suicide victim Ryan Kelly, RIP September 10, 2019, Suicide Prevention Day.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

RIP:  Ryan Kelley

How many more suicides will it take before our money lusting behemoth known as Family Court is finally overhauled from a lawyer friendly environment to a parent friendly one? Government reports continue to show twenty-two veteran suicides per day, a major percentage of which are triggered by family court abuses. And now there’s another persecuted dad, Ryan Kelley, who took his life yesterday, September 10, 2019. Ironically, it was Suicide Prevention Day.

There are those who benefit from the family court industry (and at least one self-loving troll on Facebook) who will try to deflect attention to a DWI charge which Mr. Kelley was facing. But there are countless people who face such charges, and much worse, without even considering a terminal outcome. They pay the price and move on. In Mr. Kelley’s case, he would face child support jail after completing his DWI defense.

According to his suicide note and follower comments, Ryan Kelley was “trying to stay alive” for years in the face of family court abuses. Even a moronic troll should be able to figure out that such abuses over an extended period would lead to alcohol problems. If there’s one lesson this family court regime has taught us, there is no escape from its persecution. Alcohol and suicide became that escape for Ryan, all in his children’s so-called “best interests.”

For thirty years now, family reform groups have come and gone. One-and-out websites, Facebook pages and lofty crusades that died a quick death. When are we finally going to stop pontificating and conjuring up bizarre lawsuits and reform ideas with little or no competency? When are we finally going to leave the comfort of our routines and join together in protests nationwide?

I’ve been in this reform movement for over twelve years. I’ve spent 30 years in both federal and state courts successfully litigating complex cases as an attorney and litigant, even after the retaliation I suffered as a consequence (summarized in complaint below).  I’ve traveled from Paris to Hawaii and nearly every state in between meeting with victims and exposing court corruption.

Among the most promising events I have seen in all that time and travel is a three-day conference, lobbying effort and march which I sponsored this past May in Washington D.C. known as the Parent March on Washington. Under a plan of action put together by attendees, regional protests would follow. Instead only the carnage has.

Well, I, for one, who sacrificed everything short of life itself to end this carnage, never surrendered that plan of action. On September 26, 2019 we are planning a rally and march between Oneida County Family Court to Utica city court in upstate New York (dead center between Buffalo and NYC). Our target is ideal for capturing national attention. It is focused on my precedent-seeking case filed last month in New York Supreme Court which was recently removed to federal court by the Attorney General.

It is also focused  on a rude, racist and rogue judge who is reflective of the problems we all have in these courts. Gerald Popeo is a city court judge named as a defendant in my lawsuit. He was assigned out of order as the 41st trial level jurist on my family court custody and support cases. He is avenging a public censure issued against him by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct on February 12, 2015. That censure makes him anything but a judge with the temperament to preside in family court.

Gerald “Scary Gerry” Popeo has blamed me, in part, for that censure. It cited racist comments, violent threats to litigants and the jailing of men in violation of their due process rights. The prosecutor recommended removal, and Popeo’s defense attorney (a former state supreme court judge) asked for a private reprimand. The Commission compromised with the public censure, thereby allowing him to become improperly assigned to my family matters to exact revenge.

The administrative judge who made all these suspect judge assignments since 2007 died last month at the age of 68. No replies to my complaints were made by him during the same period prior to his passing. And now, Judge Popeo, after issuing a near fatal warrant against me last year, is at it again with raw abuses of power and ethics. Here are some of the comments and conduct which a hearing judge found to be true against Popeo in the Commission decision:

“You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to come off the bench and slap off your face”

“Mr. Scully (prosecutor) is playing cigar store Indian at the moment.”

“You know what black people from New York City call black people from upstate New York? Country Niggers.”

In a shocking irony, a downstate African-American is now the top attorney in both upstate and downstate New York who was recently assigned to represent Judge Popeo in my precedent seeking civil rights case. New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a notice last week removing my case from state court to federal court.

The circumstances could not have come together more profoundly for our tentatively planned event on September 26th. We are now working on getting the permits. Contact us for more information at (315) 380-3420 and help make this post viral.

At 9:30 a.m. on Friday, September 6, 2019, an upstate New York city judge somehow assigned to the family court case involving a prominent civil rights attorney will issue an arrest warrant to incarcerate him on a fraudulent child support debt. It is expected to occur at the Oneida County Family Court in Utica, New York.

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol has been exposing corruption in divorce and family courts for over ten years after a stellar career as a civil rights attorney. It led to the destruction of his professional career and father-daughter relationships in retaliation for his whistle blowing and court reform activity.

Among those abusing judicial office to execute on a concerted effort to discredit this principled crusader is Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo.  He caused a warrant and “shoot-on-site” threat by a traffic cop last year. It resembled the police murder of Walter Scott in South Carolina on April 4, 2015, an African-American father shot dead five times in the back unarmed while fleeing a child support warrant.

As a result, Dr. Koziol filed a civil rights case against Popeo and his co-conspirators in New York Supreme Court on August 7, 2019. Popeo retaliated by ordering a sheriff deputy to serve a summons to appear for a child support hearing despite $35,500 in support payments never credited by the state support collection agency.

The goal here is simply to use child support as a pretext to punish Dr. Koziol with incarceration to avenge his supposed involvement in a judicial misconduct hearing against the same Judge Popeo. Here is the famous Footnote 1 of the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decision of February 12, 2015 regarding Popeo’s shocking conduct while in a judicial robe:

It was alleged that after a court session had ended, respondent (Popeo) asked the lawyer, who is African-American, if the lawyer knew what black people from New York City call black people from upstate New York and when the lawyer responded in the negative , (Judge Popeo) replied, “Country Niggers.”

A hearing judge appointed to hear the evidence found that this did happen. However the Commission which did not hear the evidence decided that it was the only one of the many instances of serious misconduct which was too “50-50” to use against Popeo. He was represented by a white former state judge. The prosecuting attorney recommended removal but the Commission decided on a mere public censure.

You cannot change the spots on a leopard, and because Popeo was allowed to resume the bench as a repeat offender, he was assigned in bizarre fashion as “Acting Family Court Judge” on Dr. Koziol’s support and custody cases in February, 2018. He quickly denied all contact with Leon’s daughters and proceeded to orchestrate grounds for support incarceration in retaliation for that censure.

Leon responded with the state court civil rights lawsuit. Letitia James, New York’s first African-American Attorney General then became Gerald Popeo’s defense lawyer by operation of law.  This now creates the unprecedented situation of a “New York City black” in Popeo’s category referring to “upstate blacks” as “country niggers.” At the time of Popeo’s racial slur, Letitia James was the Public Advocate of New York City.

In a highly unusual move, Ms. James filed a removal notice this week which immediately transferred Dr. Koziol’s civil rights case to federal court. The removal notice is reproduced here and provides the first major victory for aggrieved parents seeking to hold state judges accountable for constitutional and human rights violations in federal courts.

Such courts routinely dismiss domestic cases out of deference to state court “expertise.” Soon we will know whether this racist judge issues his arrest warrant and jail order against this model dad and parent rights advocate who sacrificed everything for his precious daughters and parental justice in these courts.

The removal places an automatic restraint on the state court proceedings until a federal judge can rule. But it is expected that this rogue, rude and racist judge will press forward regardless. You can keep up with Leon’s crusade by contacting him directly at (315) 796-4000.

Enough of the insanity! Let’s finally pull together and support Dr. Leon Koziol in this vital cause to protect parents legally residing in America.

Parent March on Washington goes viral with this precedent-setting video: Moms and Dads speak out like never before !

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As promised, the Parent March on Washington has been memorialized on this Memorial Day Weekend with an inspiring video completed today. And it’s going viral beyond our wildest expectations.

It was produced by Philadelphia Attorney Lawrence DeMarco who dropped everything to attend our three-day event on May 1-3, 2019. An outstanding 15 minute production, there has never been anything like it in parent rights history.

If this does not motivate you to action, nothing will, not even the fees that you spend into bankruptcy trying to protect your children. Take as much time as you can now to make this video viral, do it for the sake of your own children and families, for the sake of suicide prevention, for the sake of future generations.

Our March lives on! Already I have addressed permit requirements with the New York State Police and Department of Transportation for our first follow-up regional march in upstate New York on October 3 and 4, 2019. A motorcade from Fort Drum to Utica, New York along State Route 12 will commemorate veterans lost to suicide and premature death as a result of a dysfunctional family court system.

On that evening we will feature the next round of expert speakers at a hotel conference room in Utica, New York. On Friday, October 4, 2019, we will march from the Oneida County Family Court a distance that is less than half of the one we completed in our nation’s capital. It will end at the Utica city courthouse where we will demand the removal or resignation of the following:

Syracuse Administrative Judge James Tormey

Watertown Supreme Court Judge James McClusky

Oswego County Family Judge James Eby

Lewis County Family Judge Daniel King

Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo

I am already recruiting the numbers locally to make this happen, and you need to do the same in your own communities based on the precedent we set in Washington. Like Operation Greylord in Chicago where nearly 100 judges, lawyers, clerks and deputies were arrested and convicted, family courts have become a corrupt institution as detailed in my report entitled Federal Funded Epidemic.

That report was distributed throughout Congress on May 2nd, and is now being submitted to school district superintendents throughout my congressional district as part of my ongoing lobby campaign. You need to do the same and join us to grow regional protests across the country.

System beneficiaries will continue to upstage our efforts, and you may think that your lone contribution will mean little, but it took a single dad who violated the law by bringing his daughter to a school in Topeka, Kansas which ended school segregation forever. Parent discrimination, alienation and family court corruption are harming our schools like never before. It’s time we ended it now!

Next March Planned for Upstate New York after a 70,000 Signature Petition Seeks Removal of Judge James McClusky

IMG_0954

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

On the heels of a highly successful Parent March on Washington and Congressional Lobby Initiative which I was able to put together in less than three months, I promised my followers a next step which I hope will ignite similar (regional) marches and protests across the country.

I am focused on a motorcade from Fort Drum in northern New York to Utica, New York with a protest seeking a removal of four judges in addition to Judge James McCluskey of Watertown, New York. I have a sufficient local following to make this happen but welcome all from around the country who want to keep our momentum going.

The motorcade is designed to draw attention to the veterans who have committed suicides as a result of family court abuses, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org. Fort Drum is among the largest military installations in the country charged with training and mobilization of all active services. In 1959, it was the site of Agent Orange experiments which later prevented healthy births for Vietnam veterans.

Fort Drum exists in New York’s Fifth Judicial District which has become a hotbed of judge misconduct. Corruption here is being ignored or glossed over by a state judicial commission dominated by lawyers. Over a 12-year period, all of my 30-plus complaints have failed to produce a single inquiry without explanation. Such vast inaction only encourages more misconduct.

Adding to the corruption, certain judges here are being allowed to retaliate against judicial whistle blowers. It is a shameless abuse of judicial office with my ordeal as a quintessential example. If they can do this to a prominent civil rights attorney and model parent, imagine what they will do to you.

For example, one of my custody judges, Gerald Popeo, was merely given a public censure by this commission in 2015 despite being found guilty of making racial slurs to an African-American attorney. He referred to a prosecutor as a “cigar store Indian,” threatened to come off the bench to assault a litigant for giving him a “smirk,” and he jailed men for contempt in violation of their due process rights. How much more misconduct is required for removal?

Because he was not removed, he managed to get assigned to my family court matters (as a city judge!). Among so many other abuses, he failed to provide a child support hearing transcript for appeal which showed a $45,500 fraud (2015 payment never credited to me by the state’s child support collection center). Instead, he issued a support warrant with a near fatal outcome after blaming me for that public censure at a local bar.

Now comes a judge who I sued last year for a continued abuse of my reform work as a judicial whistle blower. Judge James McClusky refused to give any jail time for a 26-year old bus driver who was found guilty of raping a 14-year old girl earlier this year. Over 70,000 signatures have already been obtained seeking his removal in only a few months.

McClusky’s boss, Administrative Judge James Tormey, heads the Fifth Judicial District, but he is playing politics with accountability that litigants rightfully demand. For example, his chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 against him (and my pedophile custody judge Bryan Hedges) in a civil rights case due to retaliation against her for refusing to engage in “political espionage,” see Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).

As victims, we need to join forces to bring accountability to this judicial district. We need to make an example here so that other regions of our country will do the same. We have reports delivered and discussed with members of Congress during our May 2nd Lobby Day which seek a federal investigation of human rights abuses in these courts. We must now make follow-up calls to those members before they sweep it aside like so many others on the subject.

There will be no conference call tonight after my efforts to unveil this “next step” was upstaged by a pair of “moles and trolls.” Those interruptions have been recorded and reported. In the meantime, I have been given a new access code with the same call number. Just contact me for that code if you wish to participate in our continuing reform effort. You can call the Parenting Rights Institute at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

Finally, after taking a $5,000 loss on a March and Lobby event valued in excess of $50,000 (if sponsored by a special interest), I continue to seek donations and product purchases on my website, http://www.leonkoziol. com. That site will continue to serve as an information source. Please spread the word.

Alarming Video of Corrupt Family Judges: Outraged Parents Headed to Washington

 

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Unfortunately delayed for nearly two months, an NBC production crew has finally released this second in a series of alarming videos which documents widespread corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. It is the product of research and visits to victims across the country by the Parenting Rights Institute. Because judges are being exposed in serial fashion, this delay is no doubt caused by a scrutiny of content for accuracy.

The sampling of judges illustrates just how serious corruption has become in these courts. Many victims place blind trust in their “gods of justice” only to learn too late that they are permanently victimized. These judges were once the same lawyers profiting off of lucrative controversy to cause severe parental alienation, veteran suicides and debtor prisons under the guise of acting in our children’s “best interests.”

The time for talk, keyboarding and sermonizing to the choir is over. The system has become a trillion dollar industry with psychiatrists, counselors, case workers and countless court predators swallowing whole your earnings, savings and college funds to feed an endless greed. Children who once respected and loved both parents are taught to spy, hate and disown them with little or no cause. The alienation here is worse than the ordeals of illegal aliens being protected at our borders.

Outraged parents are wasting their time with complaints to federal and state agencies. Such parents (legally here) are no one’s priority because the state is seizing our childrearing authority as part of a New World Order. Only last month, representatives of our Institute met with a high ranking delegate to the United Nations only to learn that we would get no sympathy there. If you have survived these courts or even if you have never been to one, you are harmed in countless other ways by the societal costs.

That is why we have had enough. These lawsuits, complaints and reports are a waste when our own government does not even have the courtesy of giving a reply to so many. We have to take our case to Washington on May 3, 2019. We are going there to demand a federal investigation of these courts, to support a national shared parenting bill for an end to custody and alienation tactics, and a repeal of Title IV-D funding that is being abused to fill our jails, hospitals and morgues.

WE NEED YOUR AID AND PARTICIPATION! SHARE THIS VIDEO AND THIS MESSAGE FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR FAMILIES AND FUTURE GENERATIONS.

IN THAT REGARD, WE ARE ALL UNITED.

If you would like to be a part of our ongoing organizing efforts, call the PRI Office at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me personally at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

Dr. Leon Koziol submits report to Senate Judiciary Committee seeking criminal investigation of family court corruption

IMG_0524
Before and after this October 11, 2018 meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dr. Leon Koziol discussed his recent report regarding court corruption with several key members. Each one committed himself and senate staff to a review. Hopefully it will lead to a long needed federal investigation of our state family courts.

Breaking News from Site Administrator

Parenting Rights Institute Director, Dr. Leon Koziol, has just returned from a week long trip to Washington D.C. He has been lobbying the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, Justice Department and others for a federal investigation and committee hearings on the subject of judicial corruption in our nation’s family courts. He hopes other victims will join.

At the center of his effort is a report describing his Supreme Court petition docketed on September 5, 2018 entitled, Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. Case No. 18-278. That case relates the ten-year ordeal of Dr. Leon Koziol as a trial attorney and model parent with a request for judicial whistleblower protection. All documents are accessible on the Supreme Court site.

Depicted graphically throughout this website, Leon Koziol.com, his ordeal dwarfs the one related to the same Judiciary Committee by Dr. Blasey Ford during the recent confirmation hearings. Newly seated Justice Brett Kavanaugh will now review the Koziol case featuring claims of discrimination in our family courts, judge corruption and the targeting of men everywhere. 

The horrific mistreatment of this whistleblower climaxed this past year to include violations of law, procedure and government policies in a clandestine effort to literally kill a highly qualified reform messenger. Oneida County, New York  Sheriff Robert Maciol admitted that a secret police bulletin was improperly leaked to the media, one which led to a verbal “shoot on sight” order by a town patrol cop. It was compared to the police murder of Walter Scott on April 4, 2015. Unarmed and fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop, this dad was shot dead five times in the back leading to a $6 million settlement.

Sheriff Maciol has ignored Dr. Koziol’s complaints since January regarding the targeting of his free speech, parenting and due process rights, making him complicit in a conspiracy to violate federal law. The volatile situation which this has triggered can be compared to the needless killing of another deputy under his command, Kurt Wyman, during a domestic stand-off.

In the Koziol case, a subordinate deputy was reported for abusing court security duties, providing free service of a support summons as a favor to a court clerk, and depriving taxpayers and sheriff civil division of the fee prescribed by law. In a comparable case successfully defended by Dr. Koziol followed by civil rights recovery of $80,000, a city employee who abused his position in a similar way was quickly charged with a felony.

Dr. Koziol’s formal request for a federal investigation was discussed personally with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, some of the same ones featured during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. That process alerted the public to our third branch of government which is neither “above the law” nor immune from accountability under our Constitution.

As relevant here, and set out fully in Dr. Koziol’s report, the violations of our federal rights can elevate from civil to criminal status. A key example is “Operation Greylord,” a federal sting operation regarding judicial corruption in Chicago. Also cited in the report, it led to indictments of 93 civil rights violators that included 17 judges, 48 lawyers, 10 deputy sheriffs, 8 policemen 8 court officials and an elected politician. Nearly all were convicted. One judge committed suicide and another died in 2011, one year after his release from prison.

These are the federal criminal statutes relied upon in the Koziol report supporting a comprehensive criminal investigation of his horrific ten-year ordeal:

Title 18, section 242 of the United States Code provides as follows:

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both;

(A)nd if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Title 18 section 241 of the United States Code provides as follows:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or if two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Free speech, due process, equal protection and the fundamental parenting right were all crucified here. As always, Dr. Koziol needs your personal and financial support after losing everything behind this worth cause. That cause is benefiting parents, families, children and future generations at great risk to a conscientious whistleblower and court reformist. Kindly share this post with your congressional representatives, media and other contacts.

Is Cynthia Nixon serious about a corruption probe in the wake of New York’s latest “Buffalo Billions” scandal?

cuomo-moreland-commission

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Cynthia Nixon,  candidate for New York governor is calling on incumbent Andrew Cuomo to initiate a probe of corruption in state government. This comes on the heels of guilty verdicts involving SUNY Polytech Institute ex-president Alain Kayloyeros and developers connected to the Buffalo Billions Scandal.

As a former student body president at Polytech’s Utica-Marcy campus and a victim of corruption in nearby New Hartford, New York, I applaud  the gubernatorial candidate in her calls for reform. However, nowhere in her public statements outside of a Manhattan federal courthouse does she mention that third branch of government known as the judiciary.

Fresh from her successful endorsement of Ocasio-Cortez in an upset primary victory over long time Congressman Joseph Crowley, Nixon is hoping to do the same against Cuomo. A long shot at best, Nixon might still shock the world if she wins upstate together with a probe which, like the 2013 Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, implicates the governor in the scandals around him.

As a judicial whistleblower speaking at the Moreland Commission hearings, I exposed corruption in New York’s divorce and family courts. Within three months of that presentation, I lost contact with my daughters and was denied reinstatement of my law license. During the same year, ethics lawyers in Albany engaged in the witch hunt against me were allowed to resign quietly for falsifying their time sheets without any criminal or ethics prosecution brought against them.

This past week I obtained a sworn statement from a former client disclosing certain lawyers in Utica who participated in the 2008 witch hunt that led to my first license suspension after 23 unblemished years of practice. They sought him out at his place of employment to testify falsely about a case I successfully litigated during the nineties.

This former client was recently the victim of a sting operation by federal marshals at his brother’s home for child support delinquencies. Yes, you read that correctly. He nearly died of kidney failure after spending six months in county jail for a child support debt. Another father, Walter Scott was shot dead in the back five times unarmed while fleeing a child support debt. Meanwhile, Cuomo and other liberals are protecting illegal immigrant parents from being separated from their children.

This is the extreme to which our judicial branch has gone to destroy legal parents, veterans and especially dads in a gender biased “system.” The Census Bureau continues to report that 85% of all parents paying child support are men, and nearly one out of every five inmates in our nation’s prisons are “dead beat dads” (a still advertised sexist slur).

As a civil rights attorney, I won many race and gender discrimination cases, even representing a former president of the National Organization for Women. But when I turned my energies to end father discrimination in the same courts, I was subjected to severe retaliation. I sought to protect all parents from corruption of the worst kind, like my family court judge, Bryan Hedges, removed from the bench after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

On Friday, July 13, 2018, Governor Cuomo sought to distance himself from the Buffalo Billions convictions much like he sought to distance himself from Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Leader Dean Skelos after they were similarly convicted following their exposure at the Moreland Commission hearings (which the same Cuomo prematurely closed). Here is what New York’s current governor had to say:

Can you stop people from doing stupid things? No. Can you stop people from doing venal things? No. But you can have a system in place which that says, if you do something wrong, we will be as aggressive as the law allows in prosecuting you?

Seriously Andrew? Tell that to all our family and divorce court victims, the ones repeatedly thrown out of those same federal courts after seeking recourse for constitutional violations. Tell that to suicide victims, persecuted whistleblowers and alienated parents.

If you want to prosecute for stupidity, tell that to the state’s Commission on judicial Conduct which merely slapped the wrist of Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo in 2015. He was found guilty of wrongful incarcerations using such threats from the bench “to wipe that smirk off” a litigant’s face. He was excused of a so-called joke to an African-American attorney that downstate blacks refer to upstate blacks as “country niggers.”

And now this criminal judge has somehow managed to become assigned as an “Acting Family Court Judge” to my child support case. It is part of an ongoing scheme to incarcerate me on false pretenses after 39 prior judges were disqualified or removed from my originally uncontested divorce case, a national record by most accounts. A stand-off is forthcoming as I refuse to submit to this kind of judge and judicial “system.” I may even end up like former Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer.

If Cythia Nixon is truly sincere in her convictions and not just a politician little different from her opponent, she will look into judicial corruption and the failed Moreland Commission which also led to a quick cover-up of Cuomo’s child support issues. She should read the case involving the administrative judge in Syracuse who assigned all those judges to my case, including Popeo. In that case, a chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 due to unlawful retaliation for her refusal to engage in political espionage, Morin v Tormey,  626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).
