IT CORROBORATES COUNTLESS MISCONDUCT COMPLAINTS WHICH IN NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA AT LEAST ARE INVESTIGATED ONLY 10% OF THE TIME.

WHEN WILL OUR “THOMAS PAINE” ADVOCATES FINALLY JOIN RANKS TO ROOT OUT THIS CORRUPTION IN THE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT HELD TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF IMPARTIALITY AND TRUST?

Dr. Leon Koziol is a civil rights advocate who practiced law for more than two decades in federal and state courts. He appeared on the CBS program 60 Minutes for his defense of landowners targeted for eviction by native-American tribes alleging violations of ancient treaties. As an upstate New York city corporation counsel, he secured a federal court verdict invalidating a mayoral gag order.

Relevant case citations include, Koziol v Hanna, 107 F.2d 170 (NDNY 2000); Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir.2004); Oneida Indian Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY); Peterman v Pataki, 2004 NY Slip Op 51092(U) and Parent v State, 786 F. Supp. 2d 516 (NDNY 2011).

The latter was a consolidated case intended as a class action on behalf of victimized parents in divorce and family courts. It was part of the author’s bold challenge to judicial and sovereign immunity which led to severe retributions upon his law licenses and parent-child relationships. The horrific ordeal which led to a near death climax in 2020 was captured in his book, Whistleblower in Paris, published in 2021.

BREAKING NEWS FOR INVESTORS AND FAMILY COURT VICTIMS:

A FEDERAL LAWSUIT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY AGAINST NFL QUARTERBACK TOM BRADY, SUPERMODEL GISELE BUNDCHEN AND COMEDIAN LARRY DAVID, AMONG OTHER CELEBRITIES, WHO PROMOTED THE NOW SENSATIONAL $16 BILLION PONZI SCHEME CARRIED OUT BY 30-YEAR-OLD SAM BANKMAN-FRIED.

THE FALL-OUT FROM THIS GARGANTUAN FRAUD IS ONLY BEGINNING, BUT ALL AMERICANS ARE HARMED, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, AND SHOULD PAY HEED TO THE ISSUES OF FAILED REGULATIONS, OFFICIAL IMMUNITIES AND AGENCY OVERSIGHT.

THIS IS BECAUSE YOU MAY ALREADY BE AN UNKNOWING VICTIM.

EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT, TAXPAYERS MIGHT BE CALLED UPON TO BAIL OUT THE INVESTORS WRONGFULLY DEFRAUDED DUE TO GOVERNMENT COMPLICITY IN THIS UNPRECEDENTED POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL SCANDAL.

AS REVELATIONS CONTINUE TO UNFOLD SHOWING THAT DEMOCRAT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ACCEPTED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM BANKMAN-FRIED, THE TIP OF THIS ICEBERG MAY DRAIN MUCH MORE THAN A SWAMP, IT MAY SINK CAPITOL HILL ITSELF.

THE NEWLY ANNOUNCED, PROPOSED CLASS ACTION MAY BE EXPANDED EVENTUALLY TO INCLUDE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, RIVALING THE CAMP LEJEUNE CLAIMS.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ENJOY LEGISLATIVE AND SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY WHILE ENGAGED IN OFFICIAL BUSINESS BUT MAY BE STRIPPED OF SUCH PROTECTIONS IF A COURT FINDS THEY WERE ACTING OUTSIDE THEIR SCOPE OF OFFICE, i.e. PRIVATE INVESTING.

IN MY OWN EXPERIENCE AS A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL LITIGATOR FOR MORE THAN 23-YEARS (BEFORE I WAS TARGETED AS A JUDICIAL WHISTLEBLOWER), I FILED A SIMILAR PROPOSED CLASS ACTION.

ITS GOAL, AMONG OTHERS, WAS TO REMOVE VARIOUS IMMUNITIES THAT PREVENTED PARENTS VICTIMIZED BY DRACONIAN SUPPORT COLLECTION TACTICS AND PARENTAL ALIENATION FROM SEEKING REDRESS IN OUR FEDERAL COURTS.

SUCH IMMUNITIES WERE RAISED BY THOSE WHO HAVE UNDULY INTERFERED WITH OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT OF PARENTING, ONE THAT OUR SUPREME COURT HAS REPEATEDLY DECLARED TO BE “THE OLDEST LIBERTY INTEREST PROTECTED BY THE CONSTITUTION.”

THE NUMBERS ENGAGED IN THAT INTERFERENCE WERE GROWING BY THE DAY, REQUIRING ME TO NAME A WIDE RANGE OF DEFENDANTS TO MAKE THAT POINT. THESE WERE PERSONS AND ENTITIES EFFECTIVELY SUBSTITUTING AS PARENTS.

What Happened to Governor Kathy Hochul’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Forensic Evaluations: More Broken Promises at Election Time?

Leon R. Koziol, J.D.

Citizen Commission Against Corruption, Inc.

Whatever happened to that taxpayer financed Blue Ribbon Commission on Forensic Evaluations which Kathy Hochul touted with great media fanfare on September 9, 2021? Upon assuming her position as governor following the resignation of disgraced Governor Andrew Cuomo, she promised action on New York’s dysfunctional divorce and family court system, most importantly the lucrative abuses of forensic evaluations.

Her disrespect of constituents and victims who took the time to given testimony on that day and again on September 23, 2021 was never more evident than the inaction which followed, typifying New York’s dishonest politics and rampant, near daily, scandals. This hollow commitment renders her unfit to hold office that she was never elected to.

Among the speakers was a highly agitated parental rights advocate, Francesca Bancroft Amato. From her i-phone on the driver’s side of her vehicle, she lambasted the hearing process as a sham and waste of valuable time. Her angry attacks were rapid-fire and by far the most volatile of the speakers at these hearings.

I remember thinking how her outbursts may have undermined her positions, but in the end, she was proven correct as this commission morphed into yet another window-dressing entity and a scam to benefit aspiring politicians. Indeed, it followed the pattern of her predecessor Governor Cuomo who empaneled a “who’s-who” of law enforcement experts he dubbed the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013. Its objective was to address a “culture of corruption” in Albany.

So why should we voters trust anything that Hochul or Cuomo spews forth today for self-advancement?

To be sure, when Governor Cuomo was personally exposed by Moreland speakers, not unlike years later, he disbanded his commission prematurely. Here is a reprint of my highly relevant testimony given before Hochul’s Commission. Why is no one in the media exposing her for this? Your referral of this message to the New York Post and other mainstream news is now vital to our joint citizen cause for accountability and reform.

Testimony Before the Blue Ribbon Panel of Governor Kathy Hochul to Examine Forensic Evaluation Abuses in New York Divorce and Family Courts

Good Morning Members of this Blue Ribbon Panel.

My name is Leon Koziol, Director of the Parenting Rights Institute in New York. I am also a civil rights advocate who practiced law in the courts of this state for more than 23 years. As a

dedicated father of two daughters now in college, I bring together a highly relevant background to the work of your panel and the duties charged upon it by our new governor, Kathy Hochul.

On September 17, 2013, I was invited to testify before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, a dream team of lawyers, experts and law enforcement as it was called. Meanwhile countless would-be speakers were denied access due to the volume of complaints which ultimately led then Governor Andrew Cuomo to dissolve his commission prematurely. 

That self-serving event led to federal convictions of the leaders of both houses of our legislature and a top Cuomo aide after an outraged speaker, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, seized commission files to complete the job. The concern today is that my time is not once again wasted with testimony which is so critical to the functioning of our government and its court system. 

There are countless parents, children and families victimized by abusive forensic evaluations in our divorce and family courts. It is part of a lucrative process and silent epidemic that is causing needless murders, suicides, domestic violence, parental alienation, criminal and drug abuses, and an overall decline in the health and productivity of the people of this state.

At another time and place I might be citing victims such as Utica Investigator Joe Longo who committed a murder-suicide that left four children without parents. I might reference Thomas Ball who burned himself alive on the steps of a family court to protest corruption, or the mother who murdered her two-year old girl, Gabriella Boyd, rather than comply with a custody change.

But I need not expound upon such victims today because I am a victim myself. Originally set to testify on September 9, 2021, I was instead recuperating at a hospital from a heart condition caused by the stresses I endured as a whistleblower of family court corruption. It included forensic evaluations ordered in retaliation for my testimony before that Moreland Commission. 

Governor Hochul’s Blue Ribbon Panel

September 23, 2021

Page two

Two such orders were based on the lone accusations of a custody adversary seeking to alienate me from my girls. I have never been found to be unfit, no agency complaints, and all offense petitions were thrown out. Yet none of that mattered as these orders typically derive from a lawyer’s playbook and an outdated custody framework for allocating parenting rights.   

The whimsical manner in which these forensic orders were issued, vacated and then re-issued is beyond presentment here. But in the end, I was deprived over seven years of child contact in proceedings conducted without constitutional safeguards such as a jury, impartial judge, proper burden of proof, and a standard of appellate review limited to sound discretion. 

It remains a saga that reads more like a John Grisham story. And as timing would have it, that saga is now found in my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris. The subject of abusive forensic orders is addressed in alarming detail throughout that book. A copy has therefore been provided to this panel. Extensive research supports the existence of this silent epidemic, and I am joining countless other victims today seeking genuine accountability and reforms.

Respectfully submitted,

Leon R. Koziol, J.D.  

With Roe v Wade overturned, will the Supreme Court target our parenting right?

Dr. Leon Koziol

Director, Parenting Rights Institute

Founder and president, Citizen Commission Against Corruption, Inc.

In his ominous concurring opinion in Dobbs v Jackson, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas declared that other landmark rulings should also be overturned based on the reasoning used by the Court’s majority in striking the right to an abortion. He cited gay marriage and contraceptives as some of his targets given their lack of any textual source in our Constitution. Unlike the right to bear arms enshrined by our Second Amendment which the same Court reaffirmed only one day earlier, these rights are not found in any amendment or bill of rights.

This should deeply alarm all parents because the right to raise one’s offspring is also devoid of any textual recognition in that same venerable document, making it ripe for judicial assault. Indeed, like prey evading the shark, it is a right that may be said to be hiding among those targeted for review. Moreover, it is one that is already being bitten apart in our schools, homes and communities. Simply stated, we parents have taken it for granted much like abortion advocates had for a half century.

However, the parenting right derives from a different source than privacy or that “penumbra” of rights found elsewhere in our Constitution which the high court used to rationalize its shaky decision in 1973. The parenting right exists solidly within the “traditions and history” of our republic, and it was unquestioned by the framers of that Constitution in 1787. It was first given formal recognition 75 years ago in the landmark case of Meyer v Nebraska, 262 US 390 (1923) and expanded to countenance grandparent rights in Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000).

In the latter case, writing for a plurality of the Court, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor declared this right to be the “oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution.” Hence it may be assumed that this right will remain protected for the foreseeable future because it rests upon a different prong than abortion and privacy. But given the whirlwind of recent Supreme Court rulings, the renewed drive to pack the Court, and outright bedlam across America, we parents must stand guard.

Here at the Parenting Rights Institute we have been acting aggressively to promote fathers’ rights and parental rights generally since 2010. This is largely due to our growing status as a “fatherless America” which, in turn, has triggered widespread violence and declines in our moral fiber as a nation. To that end, as a victim and civil rights attorney, I have exposed judicial corruption that is destroying our families.

This 12-year crusade for overdue reforms led to severe retributions by my profession leading to the loss of all contact with my precious daughters, closure of my law practice and ultimate hospitalization in 2020 for a life-threatening condition. This is the price to be paid by whistleblowers in our third branch of government while the band plays on.” Hopefully my sacrifices will be a beacon of light for parents immersed in the same crusade who are being ignored and censored by our government.

Parent Alienation is more than a syndrome or human rights violation, it is a killer

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

The following text is taken from the concluding paragraphs of my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris. It is highly relevant for those suffering from parental alienation. This book addresses a silent epidemic and is a must-read for those engaged in divorce, custody and support conflicts. It is a rare education opportunity to educate yourself to the realities of these court processes and based on more than 30 years of litigation experience. This extraordinary read is available at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon or major on-line bookseller (published by Author House). You can also visit the book’s website at http://www.whistleblowerinparis.com.

Epilogue (concluding segment):

This alone warrants a Justice Department investigation of my extended ordeal. It would benefit countless moms, dads and families similarly situated. There are tremors of unrest throughout this country which are being ignored. Hardly a day goes by without some child murder, needless suicide or unpredictable homicide traced to these dysfunctional courts. What remains of a stable society is largely made possible by the free exercise of parental liberties and self-governance. It is my fervent hope, therefore, that a powerful movement emerges from my sacrifices that forces our government to pay attention to its own parents.

In the end, my daughters lost a model father, someone who could have continued to develop family pride and helped educate them well beyond the capabilities of their other parent. That parent took father alienation to a whole new low as she recently changed residence with such secrecy that the location of my daughters became unknown. Making matters worse, resort to the courts was long foreclosed due to continuing systemic bias. The endless assignments of jurists to my case made any such resort a painful gesture in futility. If a judge like Daniel King could invent a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (wedding toast) as a reason to suspend child contact, how could I expect any sanity from the judges who replaced him without correction since his childish December 2, 2013 decision? 

Taken together, it required consideration of an amber alert by a father still subject to child support orders. All of this will needlessly impact the alienator’s new marriage on hate alone. It is a prime example of how dysfunctional family court has become, the newest forms of evil it has spawned, and the vast downward spiral which the lucrative litigation yielded over a fifteen year period. In short, all incentive for financial support has been tortured through corruption. I lost many years of those special moments of child development which can never be recreated, and this heinous outcome arose simply because I hurt the feelings of family court judges.

In raw terms, you can kill a targeted person with a gun or accomplish the same outcome with a drawn-out process that chips away at your existence. Parent alienation is such a process. It is more than a psychological syndrome or human rights violation, it is a proven killer of victimized parents. Whether it be a suicide, terminal illness or some other consequence, the needless separation of a loving parent from his or her children is simply unconscionable. But when forcing the victim to pay for the child abduction through support payments under penalty of lock-up in a debtor prison, it becomes utterly barbaric. 

Judges are quick to overlook this reality as they routinely find breaches of various duties in personal injury cases to achieve million-dollar verdicts. But when greater breaches of ethical duties are presented regarding their own conduct, they cloak themselves with judicial immunity on the rationale that such liability would deter qualified candidates from seeking judgeships. But lawyers crave these prestigious titles, and a judge complying with job requirements has nothing to fear. If anything, this absolute immunity encourages misconduct while politically-appointed oversight commissions fail us time and again.

This literary work is by no means an indictment of our justice system or legal profession. However, it verifies in painstaking detail how a conscientious attorney, model parent and judicial whistleblower can be so ruthlessly punished for his crusade to deliver overdue reforms to our system of family court justice. It serves to illustrate the need for attorney whistleblower protection. Finally, it is directed against the divorce industry and the predators who are dragging it all down to hell, a people’s courthouse reduced to a giant profit center. All this corruption might compel another victim to resort to violence. But I was able to achieve some justice in more constructive ways. My old friend, Sir Walter Scott, gave me sage advice in that regard:

For he that does good, having the unlimited power to do evil, deserves praise not only for the good he performs, but the evil he forbears.

Blue-Ribbon Commission votes to eliminate forensic custody evaluations while ignoring accountability and defective hearings

Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Would it have been such a burden to notify hearing presenters of a report issued on January 11, 2022 by a state Blue-Ribbon Commission on Forensic Custody Evaluations? Instead, a final report was released to media with no indication that many who made presentations at two virtual hearings were respected. Those hearings in September were conducted in haphazard fashion, some presentations without video recognition, and no reply to complaints regarding their conduct by a domestic violence employee.

Welcome to New York, land of useless oversight bodies appointed at taxpayer expense to create an illusion of public accountability. Like the 2013 Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, this so-called blue-ribbon commission assumed the mantra of a window-dressing entity. By a vote of 11-9, it recommended that forensic custody evaluations be eliminated in the state’s divorce and family courts. It also recommended that in the event such evaluations are continued, evaluators be monitored, qualified and stripped of qualified judicial immunity from civil liability.

Of course, none of these recommendations will be adopted by New York Governor Kathy Hochul whose predecessor, Andrew Cuomo, created both the Moreland and forensic panels. His non-elected replacement is being publicly criticized as a state leader who may be worse than her predecessor, preserving that long entrenched “culture of corruption in Albany” which these oversight panels were created to address. But the corruption has only worsened as the “band plays on” in Albany.

There were presenters who identified certain judges, evaluators and wrongdoers but none were mentioned in the report. Moreover, if the evaluators are to be stripped of their immunities from civil liability, i.e. from a consequential child murder, parent suicide or court-induced mental condition, why were judges given a free pass, those who often rubber-stamp the reports of these same evaluators? We all know that lawyers in robes will never consent to waiving their “absolute” immunities as they impose million-dollar judgments for comparable negligence on their litigants.

Therefore, we victims must take matters into our own hands as the time is long overdue for a legislative enactment or constitutional amendment to eliminate that self-protection. Let’s face it, the state’s Judicial Conduct Commission is yet another useless window-dressing entity investigating less than 10% of complaints annually. Civil suits would make up for that void. Besides, if judges are complying with ethics and criminal laws, they have nothing to fear. And you know that few would leave these prestigious posts if immunities were removed to comport with the accountability applied to the rest of us.

This blue-ribbon commission has yet to respond to my complaints, separately submitted from my testimony, which addressed the conduct and outcomes of these public hearings. This includes severe parental alienation caused by judge-appointed evaluators and a requested referral to the Justice Department and state attorney general for a comprehensive investigation. Such disregard in advance of the recent final report shows how state government remains an elitist body far removed from the people being served.

These evaluators, often appointed to yield campaign contributions, have produced horrific outcomes that warrant monetary compensation. When the Moreland Commission was prematurely dissolved by Andrew Cuomo to evade growing evidence, a federal prosecutor seized commission files resulting in federal prison terms for the state’s legislative leaders and a top Cuomo aide. The federal-state corruption investigation known as Operation Greylord ended with the convictions of nearly 100 judges, lawyers, law enforcement and state officials in Chicago.

In contrast, this impotent blue-ribbon panel proved to be yet another political exercise without accountability or reform. And where was any genuine investigative report from our mainstream media despite all the notice given to them? We victims need to join forces and protest government corruption as the population exodus from New York continues to escalate along with the abuses, taxes and overregulation of the people.

Due to the oversight dysfunction, a citizen commission was recently organized as a nonprofit known as the Citizen Commission Against Corruption. Get the details at http://www.citizencommissionagainstcorruption.org or call its office at (315) 864-8176.

Shared Parenting: Has Anything Changed in Thirty Years of Discrimination?

The following Guest Column appeared in a mainstream newspaper of upstate New York 12 years ago. Read the highly informative content. Has anything changed today?

The Torturing of Child Support and its escalation of Parental Alienation during the holidays

By Dr. Leon Koziol, Director

Parenting Rights Institute

Author’s Note: The following column is based on two decades as a trial lawyer, twenty years as a parent and twelve years as a court reform advocate

When one thinks of child support, it’s generally a duty that parents have to pay a fair share of child rearing expenses. And despite tremendous strides in achieving equal rights over the years, child support continues to be predominantly a male obligation. Census Bureau reports still show that fathers are as much as 85% of all parents subject to a child support order.

Regardless of the gender disparities, the support of children should rank high among society’s priorities. But unfortunately, that priority has been abused well beyond its logical scope to line the pockets of lawyers, service providers and the support bureaucracy to result in bankruptcies, the raiding of college funds and a recent phenomenon known as parental alienation.

The realities demonstrate that our antiquated child custody framework is no longer committed to the so-called “best interests of the child” but a means for growing a trillion-dollar industry. And women are no longer immune from the consequences as we find countless moms today feeling the abuse which dads have long endured. Severe parental alienation has yielded a loss of contact with the children they are supporting over the holidays.

During the 1980s, Dr. Richard Gardner popularized that condition as a psychological disorder but his conclusions were rejected by his profession and never included among the 300 disorders recognized in the DSM-5 manual for insurance purposes. In my own reports since then, I have similarly rejected such a condition and preferred to treat it more accurately as a human rights violation.

A federal funding law is the “elephant in the courtroom” in that regard. As originally drafted, Title IV-D of the Social Security Act targeted absentee fathers through incentive funding to the states (and by extension their domestic relations judges). Such revenues were based on the number and size of support collections that could be documented. This, in turn, created a systemic bias among support judges.

But over time, a little-known adjustment to this funding law from absentee to “noncustodial parent” aggravated that bias through a revenue stream that grew many times over. The mere condition of career mom or gender status was now sufficient to place an adequate provider into a classification that destroyed the overriding assumption of parenthood and an existing willingness to support offspring without a state mandate.

From there, without any investigative reporting or public accountability, it was off to the races on the tactics employed to elevate obligations beyond a parent’s income and self-support capacities. It resulted in debtor prisons, child abandonment and unprecedented violence contrary to stated objectives. A new form of evil was born from the fires of hell.

The examples of carnage erupting from this corruption are countless: a mother who killed her two-year old daughter rather than give her up to a custody change (2018 Gabriella Boyd), a father who killed his girl only to burn himself along with her in his home (2016 Kyra Franchetti), a mother who obtained a gun overnight following a child support dispute to kill the father and children (2019 Damyrra Jones).

They include veterans and law enforcement: a father who left his eight-year old boy in a freezing garage resulting in homicide charges (ex-NYPD officer Michael Valva – 2020), a war veteran, Thomas Ball, who burned himself alive in front of a New Hampshire courthouse to protest child protection abuses, and a police investigator who killed his ex-spouse with a common kitchen knife after exiting support court to leave four children without parents, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (NDNY 2011).

This is only a sampling of real life horrors that attorneys, media and oversight entities are purposely ignoring due the immense influence of special interest groups. In our peaceful protests over the years, most recently the 2019 Parent March on Washington, we have demanded a federal investigation and congressional oversight hearings to address the human rights violations and rampant abuse of federal funds in this silent epidemic.

In Chapter 12 of my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris, I outline some highly suppressed techniques concocted over the years in support proceedings to maximize profits and court revenues. You should obtain this valuable read at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon, publisher Author House or major bookseller on-line. You can also join our live talk program, Leon’s Library, daily, Monday thru Friday at 7:30 pm EST on YouTube.

Here is my relevant book excerpt:

Chapter 12- No Place Like Home at pg. 193-195

To advance funding goals, state legislatures have enacted laws that require courts to name a “custodial parent” as a condition for a valid divorce or support agreement. Typically, an opt-out clause allows parents to by-pass the mandatory support formula, but to do so requires them to engage in a comparative analysis which often dilutes the reality of this option.

There is also collaborative law, but such processes are similarly diluted by additional attorneys who cannot be used later if agreement fails. More lawyers are added to a two-tiered process to support the adage that any community which cannot support one lawyer can always support two.

Here is a partial listing of fictions, in addition to those provided earlier, that were orchestrated over the years to maximize funding at the expense of judicial impartiality and due process:

  1. Service of a support violation petition can be achieved by simple mailing. These petitions typically contain boldface, capital letter warnings of arrest and incarceration. If this type of service is challenged on due process grounds, it can incur the cost of personal service unlike criminal counterparts which these proceedings resemble.
  • Expedited case management rules can provide a mere thirty days for defense preparation between a first appearance and trial. All too often, a jail term for contempt of a support order is the standard outcome conditioned on a purge or payment amount. Satisfaction is routinely coerced from relatives, employers or friends.
  • The case for a violation and jail term is easily made by a single non-party witness, typically a social services employee offering a delinquent support summary into the record. Intent is presumed from its mere production without any other proof.
  • The burden of proof is wrongfully shifted to the defending party to prove innocence. The standard for conviction is the lowest of all forms of litigation despite the stigma and incarceration which are at stake. There is no jury or indigent right to counsel.
  • Support judges have invented an evidentiary substitute known as imputed income which assures the highest support obligation possible, often well beyond the realistic income capacities of the targeted debtor. Defending parties are treated at higher levels of income based on past employment reports even when wrongfully terminated.
  • Support obligations continue to accrue at regular intervals during incarceration for violations or any other reason. They also accrue when a father is later found not to be a biological parent and despite frauds used to deny him child access. They also accrue until a petition for recourse is actually filed despite its futility in a biased process.
  • The state has expanded its tyrannical power beyond the original objective of recouping welfare costs for abandoned mothers on public assistance. It now acts as representative for self-sufficient support seekers to create a serious imbalance in the scales of justice. Attorney fees and other costs are made a part of the final judgment.

In my case, all but the actual incarceration was used against me. But the many processes employed were also fraught with serious error, gender prejudice and whistleblower retaliation. At what point, then, is a victim pushed to such an extreme that our Constitution confers upon him a legal right to fight back or take the so-called law into his own hands?

You be the jury.

Leon’s Library: Our Next Guest Lost His Two-Year Old Girl to a Murdering Mom Now Doing a Life Prison Term

On our next daily talk show, Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 7:30 pm EST, we will feature Steven Boyd, founder of the Gabriella Boyd Foundation. He is on the Board of Directors of the Citizen Commission Against Corruption which sponsors this show. Steve lost his two-year old daughter, Gabriella, to a murder by the custodial mom who refused to comply with a custody change order. That heinous crime was front-page news in downstate New York since 2018, and the mother is now serving a life sentence after being additionally charged with attempted murder of the police officers arriving on the scene.

Steve headed up the candlelight vigil component of our 2019 Parent March on Washington dedicated to the children, parents and veterans lost to a corrupted family court system. That march was our feature on Friday and Monday, and as fate would have it, both live shows were intercepted on YouTube through video and audio cancellation respectively. This mirrors the censorship of the host of this program, Dr. Leon Koziol, when his website was subjected to a family court gag order removed in 2016 after it was challenged in New York Supreme Court. A protest was set to occur in front of the courthouse only days prior to removal.

Similarly, his Facebook reactions numbering as many as 2,000 on a single post were inexplicably reduced to only a few since that year. Seven postings from his website were attached to a 2014 report opposing reinstatement even though nothing was prosecuted on any of them. More recently, the host’s video component of testimony before Governor Kathy Hochul’s Blue-Ribbon Commission on Forensic Custody Evaluations was blacked-out from the record. We learned of this from an informant after the virtual hearing concluded on September 23, 2021. Coincidence? Maybe some, but not all of this. In short there is a growing mound of circumstantial proof showing censorship and electronic interference much like conservative groups were selectively frustrated in their applications for tax exempt status during the Obama administration.

We are not conspiracy theorists but unless one is utterly prehistoric, he or she would have to know that anything viral, anything operating off of satellites, and anything with a tracking device, is capable of wreaking havoc especially upon a longstanding public message that warns potential litigants to avoid retaining any lawyers. Family courts have become gold mines for service providers, and the conflict they incite for profit leads to crimes of unprecedented levels. Despite the glitches on the last two of our six live programs we will do it again with the request that our followers exercise empathy and patience. This interference adds to our demands for an investigation by the Justice Department into the human rights violations and federal funding abuses that are escalating in these courts. Monday’s program was necessarily concluded early due to the audio voids but when reproduced from scratch only minutes later, using all the same equipment and settings, the test program engaged live without incident.

You maybe asking yourself what the motive here might be, and the answer is simple. This show threatens lawyer greed and overbilling practices. It is hosted by a litigator who practiced unblemished for more than 23 years in these courts. his credibility and determination could lead to a very compelling show down the road which needs to be squashed at its outset. The host’s newly published book was recently suppressed from a quarter page book advertisement in a major local newspaper. That book, Whistleblower in Paris, exposes the silent epidemic in these courts. The bottom line is this: does government still fear the people or do we now fear it? if the latter, we have accepted tyranny without our knowledge or even a fight of any kind, and that is anathema to all of our principles under the Constitution. Stick with us, we’re not going anywhere despite all the persecution because somebody has to do this for the sake of an America we all love. The call-in number on Tuesday at 7:30 pm EST is the same: (315) 796-4000.

On this Veteran’s Day, the Parenting Rights Institute salutes all those who promoted the cause of liberty. Meanwhile we continue to promote their rights on the domestic front.

By Dr. Leon Koziol, Director

Parenting Rights Institute

We first publicized the above video in 2011. In the same year we highlighted veteran Thomas Ball who burned himself alive on the steps of a New Hampshire family court to protest the injustices that deprived him of a father-daughter relationship. Today the carnage among veterans in our nation’s divorce and family courts remains unchanged. If anything it has only gotten worse despite all these years fighting the many battles on our home front to reform a dysfunctional system. Shared parenting legislation continues to be opposed by powerful special interests because the so-called “best interest of the child” has become a lucrative trillion dollar industry.

On the home front, we filed precedent-seeking lawsuits, i.e. Parent v State, 786 F. Supp. 2d 516 (NDNY 2011) which we prosecuted all the way to the Supreme Court. We conducted rallies before a federal appeals court in Manhattan and other courts in 2012, testified before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption in 2013, sought international recognition in Paris in 2014, submitted reports to the Justice Department in 2015, successfully challenged a gag order on this website in New York Supreme Court in 2016, participated in a family law conference at the United Nations and a whistleblower summit in Washington in 2017, lobbied for reform in congress in 2018, sponsored the three-day Parent March on Washington in 2019, networked with fellow victims in 2020, and testified before Governor Kathy Hochul’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Custody Forensic Evaluations in 2021.

In the same year we published a book entitled, Whistleblower in Paris, which provided a documentary of family court corruption, and we introduced a daily talk show, Leon’s Library, this past week on YouTube. This is only a short list of our travels, sacrifices and reform activities detailed throughout this website. It was and remains a true John Grisham ordeal which the media and public servants are ignoring and even suppressing. As a result, despite the parades and fanfare today, the “Elephant in the Courtroom” continues to be side-stepped in the speeches. Veterans continue to fall victim to this archaic and abusive family court system. During our crusade for justice, we have literally saved veteran lives.

Most people do not realize that the parenting right has been repeatedly recognized by the Supreme Court as the “oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution,” Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000). To help our cause in a meaningful way, or simply to learn more about the corruption that is eradicating this right, join our live talk show, Leon’s Library, every evening at 7:30 pm EST. Tonight we will feature a Florida attorney as a guest contributor. The call-in number is (315) 796-4000. Spread the word, become a subscriber, and many thanks for your support.
