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.

How can you hold your judge or lawyer accountable for misconduct?

A picture tells a thousand words in divorce and family court

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Judicial misconduct is the most censored, least publicized and gravest aspect of our federal, state and local governments. You can simply ignore it and move to your next on-line entertainment, but chances are it will find you especially in our nation’s domestic relations courts. So read on and share this post. It may be the most important one you will read in a long time.

The judiciary is our least accountable branch of government. Anyone who dares to reform it can expect severe retributions with no recourse. Judges enjoy absolute immunity for their reckless and even malicious acts. Judicial conduct commissions from New York to California are window dressing entities influenced by politics, typically investigating less than 10% of complaints.

So what does that mean to you? How do you know if your case is not already fixed, rigged or bought-off? You’re spending thousands, even millions of dollars in lawyer fees while your judge has already decided against you due to a bribe or political influence. Are you shocked by that, naive about the people in robes? Well here at Leon Koziol.com and Parenting Rights Institute, we have generated shocking examples of judicial and lawyer misconduct from our work all across America.

We are an up and coming “Judicial Watch” for divorce and family courts, doing the work where our oversight commissions are failing us. Currently we are soliciting investors and donors to upgrade our effectiveness. We will come into your community, home or court to monitor your case and seek accountability for any misconduct. As Director of Parenting Rights Institute with nearly 30 years of trial experience in both federal and state courts, I am dedicated to exposing corruption. It may be the only way you can secure true justice and turn things around.

We offer a Court Strategy Program to keep you from being abused and a team of experts prepared to expose corruption in your case if it exists. It is well worth your while, for the sake of your children if nothing else, to look us up at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com or call our office at (315) 380-3420. Then take a look at this shocking excerpt of misconduct from a book I am completing:

Examples of court corruption are provided throughout my work for victims nationwide. Many are quietly suppressed and “read like a docket sheet in any criminal court.” That is what I declared publicly time and again. Yet the public continues to hold judges beyond reproach. The fallacy of that belief was well demonstrated by my custody judge who was also declared by lawyers as  “beyond reproach,” at least until he was removed from the bench after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece: In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

One of the shocking cases cited to make my point, and the need for meaningful accountability, involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mother not convinced the FBI to act upon her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be dispensing “justice.” It begs the question: how many other such judges and cases are there? What can explain Tamara’s bizarre case? We let you decide as our story continues.

The conviction of Judge Garson for federal crimes was actually not the most shocking part of his case. Due punishment was compromised by judges and lawyer colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If Garson’s colleagues are still backing him after a crime which goes to the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally? Isn’t this where precedent is set and examples are made?

While the “Honorable” “Justice” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income through an abuse of judicial office, another New York Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to help defray the cost of legal fees needed to defend against judicial misconduct charges pending against him at the time.

Like Judge Garson, you have to ponder that as well. Judge Spargo was already being prosecuted for judicial misconduct and resorted to more serious behavior to get out of it. He referenced this lawyer’s own divorce which might be transferred to him. The pressure was not uncomplicated. Play ball or else. I suppose the lawyer could have won his divorce for a nominal “fee” to this judge when compared to a contested case. He was placed in a real quandary, deciding ultimately to report the crime only after taking steps to avoid false claims that could cost his law license.

Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes during the nineties. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe that they are gods. Such deep rooted convictions do not disappear. Judge Wachtler went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a New Jersey lawyer assisting the judge’s mistress to discover a man making extortionist and kidnapping threats involving her daughter. That elusive man turned out to be the judge himself.

Then there’s that family court judge in the state of Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant mother while presiding over her child support case. Judge McCree was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct involving numerous cases only after the affair (and pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery for the horrific misconduct by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a judicial corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in high school civics classes. But behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

Bias, coercion, schemes, scams, deal-making and outright crimes are taking place which violate all manner of ethics formally placed in our judicial codes. In our nation’s domestic relations courts, such corruption is taken to the next level under a pretext of family confidentiality, thereby concealing the misconduct and protecting a trillion dollar industry built on needless conflict.

Are you paying endless fees to a Kangaroo Court? We may get you justice!

kr
The late Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas described them as “Kangaroo courts.” He was referring to family courts. Look it up at In re Gault, 387 US 1 at  pp. 27-28. Was he describing your court. It’s time to get your own “justice!”

Is Your Judge On The Top 10 Corruption List?

Judge James K. Eby, Oswego County Family Court, Oswego, NY

Administrator’s Note: This is the third of a three-part series we call the “Turkey Trilogy.” It is designed to protect all litigants from corrupt judges. You should subscribe to our Parenting Rights Institute if you have any case in any court impacting your children.

With all our uncompensated work exposing court corruption over the years, we have neither the resources nor the time to make this publication viral. We leave that to you, our fellow victims, tortured as you must be during the holidays. So kindly make good therapy of your time by sending this out to the world.

Send it to fellow victims so they don’t feel “crazy” for lodging legitimate complaints to these useless state judicial commissions. E-mail a copy to your representative in Congress or state legislature, an oversight committee, good government group, your lawyer, media, even your parent “adversary” on this “thankless” holiday season. Maybe you’ll be very happy you did.

What you are about to read is like a preview to a real scary horror movie. But unfortunately this is no Stephen King fantasy. It’s real and occurring in courthouses across the country. You will just have to brace yourself as you read about one corrupt judge after another abusing highly entrusted positions of power.

We take pause during these holidays to “honor” the “dishonorable” judges of America’s divorce and family courts. We remain in awe over the psychotic manner of their public service to the families they have ripped apart and innocent children they have alienated from “non-custodial” moms and dads.

1.  Family Judge James Eby

In first place is Oswego County, New York  Judge James Eby, new on the family bench who got in line with 35 previously disqualified trial judges in my 10 year originally uncontested divorce. He retaliated for my reform efforts and exposure of family court corruption (i.e. this website) before such entities as the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption.

James “dweeby” Eby is the reason why Kelly Hawse-Koziol abused her “custodial power” to make it all but impossible for me to have a meaningful Thanksgiving Day with my daughters. Keep up the “good” work Jim. Study those law books to protect this child abuse industry. I’m still standing and exposing the corruption.

2. Family Judge Daniel King

In Second Place, is Lewis County Family Judge Daniel (a-okay) King). I don’t know how the New York Judicial Conduct Commission could overlook so much incompetence and ethical misconduct, but hey, I understand this is New York where the top leaders of our Legislature who appointed its members are now in federal prison. King’s gag order on this site was removed after I sued him in New York Supreme Court for violating a little  law called the First Amendment.

“Dan King,”as he introduced himself on the phone to my ex, was removed from my case this past June after we exposed his alcohol consumption at a tavern near the courthouse in Lowville, New York with his children in the vicinity. Witnesses confirmed that the barmaid had his drink committed to memory. Who are you, Judge King, to judge moms and dads who do the same? The people should be protesting daily for your removal from the bench like the next one was !

3. Family Judge Bryan Hedges

In Third Place, is Syracuse Family Judge Bryan Hedges, my custody judge. I moved to have him removed from my case because I objected to any procedure of cross-examination involving my young daughters in private chambers without the parents present. His court appointed child lawyer, William Koslosky, who hates his dad, has no children and loves his fees, countered my motion with a declaration that Judge Hedges’ reputation was “beyond reproach.” He reluctantly granted my motion due to an “appearance of impropriety” based on the “political espionage” disclosed by his chief family court clerk.

Judge Hedges was then removed from the bench shortly afterward for admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece. Gotta check each of those noun modifiers folks. He’s that pathetic, a real life child predator in chambers with your children arguing in his defense that her little hands were not actually in direct contact with his ___ in the act of (fill in the blanks). Look it up at In Re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

4. Syracuse Administrative Judge James Tormey

In Fourth Place, is Syracuse Chief Administrative Judge for the Fifth Judicial District James Tormey. That’s a lot of noun modifiers, but Jim is a politician more than he is any kind of judge. In the federal civil rights case,  Morin v Tormey (and Hedges), 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir.2010), the Onondaga County Chief Family Court Clerk successfully sued Jim for retaliation based on her refusal to conduct “political espionage” on a competing judge candidate during an election.

Like my family court matters, she was moved to distant assignments as far away as Lowville, New York. She recovered $600,000.00 against Jim and his pedophile colleague Bryan. Jim is the guy assigning all these “impartial” colleagues to decide my custody and support matters which impair my licenses, livelihood and income capacities. He is at the center of my John Grisham ordeal.

5. Albany Federal Judge Gary Sharpe

In Fifth Place, is Albany U.S. District Court Judge Gary Sharpe. Gary is a really great family man. He has two sons that managed to get appointed to prosecutor jobs for the state and federal government where Gary was once employed, also as a prosecutor. He presided over the costly criminal trial involving New York Senate Leader Joseph Bruno.

Joe was finally successful in having the charges thrown out after years of proceedings that cost taxpayers some 14 million dollars. At one point, Gary made a spectacle of himself by lashing out at Joe during trial with the public admonition that he (Gary) was in charge of the court and not the defendant (Joe) who was simply trying to talk to his lawyer at the same trial table.

Well that was sure good to know, but it’s small potatoes compared to Gary Sharpe’s misconduct in another criminal trial two years later. You’re not going to believe this but it’s true. You can look it all up at United States v Cossey, 632 F3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011) where Gary was removed by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for announcing his discovery of a human gene which the scientific community would not learn about for another 50 years. According to Gary, the Sharpe gene could decide how to sentence criminals.

This one is a real dusey, folks,  so it will take a little longer to explain. Under the Sharpe doctrine of perverted decision making, we no longer need juries, lawyers or even the Constitution. The psychiatric profession is “all over the board,” so we don’t need them either. We can decide how long a person goes to prison by the kind of human gene which a delusional judge can make up without any scientific support whatsoever.

For lack of a better explanation, this psychotic episode can be called the “omnipotent judge doctrine” applicable to race, gender, ethnic origin and maybe even a “custodial parenting” gene.  I moved to have Gary removed from my federal civil rights case on the basis of this doctrine but he retaliated instead by dismissing it without mentioning a full one-third of my supporting precedent.

I guess Gary felt that our Supreme Court was also “all over the board” with their supreme rulings so he could disregard those people as well. In the end, he effectively closed the federal courthouse doors to his public critic.

And you wonder why a police investigator took the law into his own hands in a murder-suicide upon exiting child support court leaving three children without parents and the city with a $2 million liability, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (NDNY 2011). Gary Sharpe is appointed for life and can only be removed by congressional impeachment. Good luck with that one.

Gary “Sharpe” must be limiting his reading lately to the book, After the Madness, by ex-con and disgraced ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court where it is explained that judges are trained to think of themselves as gods. Nevermind the law books if you get this judge folks. Bring your biology, psychiatric and political manifestos instead. Maybe even an exorcist !

6. Ex-Judge Michael “Cowboy” Daley

In Sixth Place is Ex-Judge Michael “Cowboy” Daley. Yeah that’s right folks, this guy styled himself as some kind of gunslinger judge when he was on the bench in 2010. He must have been watching too many movies because I know he wasn’t doing his judge homework.

I could recall pictures of John Wayne, ranch and rodeo scenes and other self-love paraphernalia in the hallway and offices of his chambers in Herkimer County, New York. However what Mikey seemed to overlook is that his image was not a heroic one. He got the cowboy image because he did as he pleased instead of what the people and their laws prescribed.

In my ordeal, I had the rodeo wanna-be disqualified from a criminal case where I had represented a falsely accused city administrator. A newly elected mayor tried to replace her expeditiously and Daley was the go-to guy for political matters. He threw a temper tantrum not far from his John Wayne picture when I refused to take a guilty plea on her behalf.

This emotionally traumatized woman stuck with me even when the Cowboy threatened her and berated me like a spoiled little brat in open court (because I dared to have him removed from her case). Fortunately she did stay loyal to me because the replacement judge threw out two counts of her felony indictment before trial and the remaining four after a jury trial was concluded. She subsequently brought civil charges against the city.

I knew the day would come when I would have to “pay” for my proper ethical conduct and successes over an unblemished 23 year career as the “bad guy” exposing government corruption. Years later Judge Daley accepted my personal child support case out of proper assignment order and despite earlier disqualification on my client cases.

Cow-Boy committed himself on the record to have a hearing on my removal motion but issued a decision instead behind closed doors violating me without a hearing. I’m not making this up, it’s all backed up in the record, and the New York Appellate Division did nothing about it along with the do-nothing state Commission on Judicial Conduct. It led to my first license suspension in 2010, lifted two years later when an agreement was reached.

Well every dog has its day. My adversaries are gradually getting justice delivered in unexpected ways as I continue to be vindicated year after year in this ordeal. My website at http://www.leonkoziol.com explains it all. Cowboy Daley lost his judgeship when he failed to get needed party endorsements.

Evidently a failure in private practice, he tried out for a lower judge post but was again rejected. Finally this past year, he ran for the job he once held as Herkimer County DA and got buried by Scott Carpenter, a lawyer with far greater integrity, a true Clint Eastwood. He made our day by sending Cowboy Daley to Brokeback Mountain.

So it looks like you were right after all, Mike, but not the way you expected with all that reckless gunslinging. You said it best in those stupid campaign commercials with your cowboy hat declaring “Not in this County.” You’re not anything in that county anymore Mike. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! You’re full of holes today just like your violation order was in 2009, from pathetic justice to poetic justice.

The seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth place awards go to Judge Wade McCree of Michigan who got a litigant mom pregnant in his chambers while presiding over her support case; Judge Gerald Garson of Brooklyn caught on FBI video taking a bribe to fix a custody case; Judge Thomas Spargo seeking a bribe from a lawyer to fix his divorce case one way or the other; and finally the Pennsylvania judges in the “Kids for Cash” scandal. They’re now doing time for accepting kickbacks from prison contractors based on the number of juveniles they convicted. Some 4,000 convictions had to be overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which is itself immersed in scandals and resignations.

Welcome to Justice in America ! Here at the Parenting Rights Institute, we are doing what we can to correct this epidemic but need your contributions and support.

You can look it all up at United States v Cossey, 632 F3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011) where Gary was removed by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for announcing his discovery of a human gene which the scientific community would not learn about for another 50 years. According to Gary, the Sharpe gene could decide how to sentence criminals.

This one is a real dusey, folks,  so it will take a little longer to explain. Under the Sharpe doctrine of perverted decision making, we no longer need juries, lawyers or even the Constitution. The psychiatric profession is “all over the board,” so we don’t need them either. We can decide how long a person goes to prison by the kind of human gene which a delusional judge can make up without any scientific support whatsoever.

For lack of a better explanation, this psychotic episode can be called the “omnipotent judge doctrine” applicable to race, gender, ethnic origin and maybe even a “custodial parenting” gene.  I moved to have Gary removed from my federal civil rights case on the basis of this doctrine but he retaliated instead by dismissing it without mentioning a full one-third of my supporting precedent.

I guess Gary felt that our Supreme Court was also “all over the board” with their supreme rulings so he could disregard those people as well. In the end, he effectively closed the federal courthouse doors to his public critic.

And you wonder why a police investigator took the law into his own hands in a murder-suicide upon exiting child support court leaving three children without parents and the city with a $2 million liability, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (NDNY 2011). Gary Sharpe is appointed for life and can only be removed by congressional impeachment. Good luck with that one.

Gary “Sharpe” must be limiting his reading lately to the book, After the Madness, by ex-con and disgraced ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court where it is explained that judges are trained to think of themselves as gods. Nevermind the law books if you get this judge folks. Bring your biology, psychiatric and political manifestos instead. Maybe even an exorcist !

6. Ex-Judge Michael “Cowboy” Daley

In Sixth Place is Ex-Judge Michael “Cowboy” Daley. Yeah that’s right folks, this guy styled himself as some kind of gunslinger judge when he was on the bench in 2010. He must have been watching too many movies because I know he wasn’t doing his judge homework.

I could recall pictures of John Wayne, ranch and rodeo scenes and other self-love paraphernalia in the hallway and offices of his chambers in Herkimer County, New York. However what Mikey seemed to overlook is that his image was not a heroic one. He got the cowboy image because he did as he pleased instead of what the people and their laws prescribed.

In my ordeal, I had the rodeo wanna-be disqualified from a criminal case where I had represented a falsely accused city administrator. A newly elected mayor tried to replace her expeditiously and Daley was the go-to guy for political matters. He threw a temper tantrum not far from his John Wayne picture when I refused to take a guilty plea on her behalf.

This emotionally traumatized woman stuck with me even when the Cowboy threatened her and berated me like a spoiled little brat in open court (because I dared to have him removed from her case). Fortunately she did stay loyal to me because the replacement judge threw out two counts of her felony indictment before trial and the remaining four after a jury trial was concluded. She subsequently brought civil charges against the city.

I knew the day would come when I would have to “pay” for my proper ethical conduct and successes over an unblemished 23 year career as the “bad guy” exposing government corruption. Years later Judge Daley accepted my personal child support case out of proper assignment order and despite earlier disqualification on my client cases.

Cow-Boy committed himself on the record to have a hearing on my removal motion but issued a decision instead behind closed doors violating me without a hearing. I’m not making this up, it’s all backed up in the record, and the New York Appellate Division did nothing about it along with the do-nothing state Commission on Judicial Conduct. It led to my first license suspension in 2010, lifted two years later when an agreement was reached.

Well every dog has its day. My adversaries are gradually getting justice delivered in unexpected ways as I continue to be vindicated year after year in this ordeal. My website at http://www.leonkoziol.com explains it all. Cowboy Daley lost his judgeship when he failed to get needed party endorsements.

Evidently a failure in private practice, he tried out for a lower judge post but was again rejected. Finally this past year, he ran for the job he one held as Herkimer County DA and got buried by Scott Carpenter, a lawyer with far greater integrity, a true Clint Eastwood. He made our day by sending Cowboy Daley to Brokeback Mountain.

So it looks like you were right after all, Mike, but not the way you expected with all that reckless gunslinging. You said it best in those stupid campaign commercials with your cowboy hat declaring “Not in this County.” You’re not anything in that county anymore Mike. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! You’re full of holes today just like your violation order was in 2009, from pathetic justice to poetic justice.

The seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth place awards go to Judge Wade McCree of Michigan who got a litigant mom pregnant in his chambers while presiding over her support case; Judge Gerald Garson of Brooklyn caught on FBI video taking a bribe to fix a custody case; Judge Thomas Spargo seeking a bribe from a lawyer to fix his divorce case one way or the other; and finally the Pennsylvania judges in the “Kids for Cash” scandal. They’re now doing time for accepting kickbacks from prison contractors based on the number of juveniles they convicted. Some 4,000 convictions had to be overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which is itself immersed in scandals and resignations.

Welcome to Justice in America ! Here at the Parenting Rights Institute, we are doing what we can to correct this epidemic but need your contributions and support.

Why Pay A Lawyer If Your Judge Has Been Bribed?

Judges have been accepting bribes for centuries, pictured here milking the family court “cow” with mom and dad lawyers on either side breaking it in half.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Judicial misconduct is the most censored, least publicized and gravest aspect of our federal, state and local governments. You can simply ignore it and move to your next on-line entertainment, but chances are it will find you especially in our nation’s domestic relations courts. So read on and share this post. It may be the most important one you will read in a long time.

The judiciary is our least accountable branch of government. Anyone who dares to reform it can expect severe retributions with no recourse. Judges enjoy absolute immunity for their reckless and even malicious acts. Judicial conduct commissions from New York to California are window dressing entities influenced by politics, typically investigating less than 10% of complaints.

So what does that mean to you? How do you know if your case is not already fixed, rigged or bought-off? You’re spending thousands, even millions of dollars in lawyer fees while your judge has already decided against you due to a bribe or political influence. Are you shocked by that, naive about the people in robes? Well here at Leon Koziol.com and Parenting Rights Institute, we have generated shocking examples of judicial and lawyer misconduct from our work all across America.

We are an up and coming “Judicial Watch” for divorce and family courts, doing the work where our oversight commissions are failing us. Currently we are soliciting investors and donors to upgrade our effectiveness. We will come into your community, home or court to monitor your case and seek accountability for any misconduct. As Director of Parenting Rights Institute with nearly 30 years of trial experience in both federal and state courts, I am dedicated to exposing corruption. It may be the only way you can secure true justice and turn things around.

We offer a Court Strategy Program to keep you from being abused and a team of experts prepared to expose corruption in your case if it exists. It is well worth your while, for he sake of your children if nothing else, to look us up at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com or call our office at (315) 380-3420. Then take a look at this shocking excerpt of misconduct from a book I have written to be published for divorce victim Tamara Sweeney entitled Jurassic Justice:

Examples of court corruption are provided throughout my work for victims nationwide. Many are quietly suppressed and “read like a docket sheet in any criminal court.” That is what I declared publicly time and again. Yet the public continues to hold judges beyond reproach. The fallacy of that belief was well demonstrated by my custody judge who was also declared by lawyers as  “beyond reproach,” at least until he was removed from the bench after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece: In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

One of the shocking cases cited to make my point, and the need for meaningful accountability, involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mother not convinced the FBI to act upon her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be dispensing “justice.” It begs the question: how many other such judges and cases are there? What can explain Tamara’s bizarre case? We let you decide as our story continues.

The conviction of Judge Garson for federal crimes was actually not the most shocking part of his case. Due punishment was compromised by judges and lawyer colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If Garson’s colleagues are still backing him after a crime which goes to the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally? Isn’t this where precedent is set and examples are made?

While the “Honorable” “Justice” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income through an abuse of judicial office, another New York Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to help defray the cost of legal fees needed to defend against judicial misconduct charges pending against him at the time.

Like Judge Garson, you have to ponder that as well. Judge Spargo was already being prosecuted for judicial misconduct and resorted to more serious behavior to get out of it. He referenced this lawyer’s own divorce which might be transferred to him. The pressure was not uncomplicated. Play ball or else. I suppose the lawyer could have won his divorce for a nominal “fee” to this judge when compared to a contested case. He was placed in a real quandary, deciding ultimately to report the crime only after taking steps to avoid false claims that could cost his law license.

Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes during the nineties. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe that they are gods. Such deep rooted convictions do not disappear. Judge Wachtler went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a New Jersey lawyer assisting the judge’s mistress to discover a man making extortionist and kidnapping threats involving her daughter. That elusive man turned out to be the judge himself.

Then there’s that family court judge in the state of Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant mother while presiding over her child support case. Judge McCree was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct involving numerous cases only after the affair (and pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery for the horrific misconduct by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a judicial corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, equality and all that other good stuff we read about in high school civics classes. But behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

Bias, coercion, schemes, scams, deal-making and outright crimes are taking place which violate all manner of ethics formally placed in our judicial codes. In our nation’s domestic relations courts, such corruption is taken to the next level under a pretext of family confidentiality, thereby concealing the misconduct and protecting a trillion dollar industry built on needless conflict.

Parent Apathy is Fueling an Epidemic: It’s High Time We Took Serious Action

Opening News Story at the time Parenting Rights Institute was founded in 2010

From the PRI Administrator

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 Parental Rights 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, argued by Dr. Leon Koziol.

In 2013, Dr. Koziol was among those 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 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, judicial corruption and marginalization of parents for profit. These abuses have remained without real accountability and causing taxpayers mounting expenses for their criminal and family court systems. Another 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.

In May, 2016 gag orders on our public statements were removed after Leon filed an extraordinary mandamus action in New York Supreme Court. 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.  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.
