——— FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE———
February 1, 2011, Old Forge, NY – Civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D., announced today that he is developing a critical and timely information product for self represented parties in child custody and support cases.
Koziol, who has gained widespread recognition for his parenting rights efforts in federal and state courts, emphasized that this self-help package will save mainstream parents thousands of dollars in litigation costs while at the same time giving them a proper working knowledge of the court system. The package will even benefit those having legal representation by enabling them to better evaluate their lawyers and options.
“This one of a kind product has emerged from twenty five years of experience in divorce, custody and Constitutional law”, said Koziol. “For about the cost of a single hour in lawyer consultation fees, subscribers can gain thousands of dollars in benefits.” Skiing in the Adirondack Mountains recently, Mr. Koziol was approached for a quick comment (see video).
A tentative release date is scheduled for early spring 2011. Those looking to be notified of a pre-launch discounted price special are encouraged to send an email to email@example.com with the words “notify me about pre-launch special” in the subject line before February 15, 2011. Please be sure to include your name, address and telephone number.

Parenting Rights Convention Announced
In what may be the first of its kind, a national parenting rights convention is being scheduled for April 15-18, 2011 in upstate New York. Following through on commitments made at a planning session held recently at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, civil rights advocate Leon Koziol, J.D. has offered a location not far from the site of the first national women’s rights convention at Seneca Falls, New York. According to Koziol, “we’ve come a long ways since 1848, but the civil rights abuses upon parents and their children have reached intolerable extremes. State intrusions upon family privacy have led to an alarming breakdown in the productivity, health and moral fiber of an entire nation”.
Originally targeted to occur in metropolitan Philadelphia, organizers were unable to secure a suitable hotel and conference center with limited resources. The idea was first launched in November, 2010 after Mr. Koziol filed a comprehensive test case in federal district court challenging the abuses found in our domestic relations courts. Hancock Airport in Syracuse is the flight destination, nearby Turning Stone Casino provides world class entertainment, and the site hotel is a four or five hour drive from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. High speed rail service makes a stop which is walking distance to the hotel with group lodging rates at a fraction of the cost found in major cities. It promises to be an event which would impress Susan B. Anthony herself.
This long overdue convention will address parental alienation, gender discrimination, abusive child control laws and the bankrupting of mainstream parents. A primary goal is to organize a June rally in Washington D.C. A series of regularly scheduled conference calls accommodating as many as 100 participants at a time will commence on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 at 7 pm eastern time for momentum building purposes. The conference dial-in number is: (605) 477-3000 and the participant access code is: 561737#). In order to gauge preliminary interest in both events, please email your reservation to firstname.lastname@example.org using the word “Reservation” in the subject line (be sure to include all contact information as well as which event you’re interested in). On a separate note, Mr. Koziol will appear on a national radio program sponsored by www.syndicatednews.net in Florida this Friday at 8 P.M. The convention and related subjects will be featured in this one hour program which can be accessed directly on line. In addition, you can view a recent YNN news story on our site.

Miracle On 34th Street
Okay, so we don’t have a 34th Street where I’m from. We’re more like the rest of America when we reach Ninth Ave in nearby Yorkville (not the one in Manhattan). Anyway, if you’ve been following our updates for the meeting this Sunday in NYC, I submitted a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday (a request for review of one of my test cases for parenting equity in our courts). Now for the rest of the story. It almost didn’t happen, and I wish I had a nice professional explanation on how it miraculously did minutes before a 6 pm deadline. But I don’t. Simply stated, it must have had something to do with that teleconference this past Sunday with religious and family rights advocates. Anyway, after working long hours on the project, I discovered on the morning of its due date that the petition did not satisfy certain highly technical print requirements. By 11 am, I nearly abandoned the filing effort because in our small town, there is no print shop capable of assembling 55 booklets of the kind which the Supreme Court requires in a matter of hours. Then a friend at my regular location referred me to a special contact. I quickly called and drove my papers to his shop (we have no traffic problems in our metro area). I then learned that he had completed such a writ project only weeks earlier and reworked the booklets after they had been rejected (giving them a 60 day extension). Imagine the chances of that in our town given the small number of petitions nationwide. Even more fortunate, the two partners had done work for my office when it had a staff and both had experienced parenting injustices among family and friends. They were familiar with my reform movement and had evidently read my full page advertisement which was recently paid for by a former client (available on this site). They dropped everything, directed me to e-mail them certain files, and by the grace of God, the 40 booklets with copies upon adversary counsel were all completed and timely submitted with filing fee. This may not have occurred on 34th Street, but it features the same Christmas “spirit”. Happy Holidays to all of our friends and followers. We look forward to seeing those of you coming to the Plaza Hotel.

Seeking Co-Sponsors of Guest Column for Media Nationwide
Attached as a link is a guest column considered for publication in the New York Times recently. An editor reported this past week that he has decided not to run it. In that case, I informed them that I would submit the same column for publication nationwide on alternate sites and metro media. Of course this effort can best be advanced through co-sponsorship and the assistance of our growing numbers of supporters. A copy is attached and available to any interested party who would like to submit it for example to their local press. Kindly return any amended versions for my approval containing new or modified content. This can be done through same day e-mail at: email@example.com. We are hoping to secure growing interest in our cause before the New York meeting.

Federal Judge Rules to Consolidate and Continue Parenting Rights Case

RE: Federal Court Decision
A decision was received this past week in connection with a parenting rights test case filed against the New York Chief Justice, Unified Court System and others on November 10, 2010. A federal court judge reviewed the background together with an earlier case filed in February, 2009 and argued in September, 2010. An order was then entered which consolidated both actions with the earlier one designated as the “Lead Case” and the latter one as the “Member Case”. All motions for dismissal filed by the New York court defendants were denied along with the plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction. Both actions were then allowed to proceed without prejudice to renew those motions in the consolidated action.
This procedure is not unlike one employed in the Oneida land claim litigation of which I was a part during the nineties, see i.e. Oneida Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000)(involving successful maintenance of gaming compact challenge against tribal motion for injunction). The current“Lead Case”, brought on behalf of “parents similarly situated” will soon enter its third year with opportunity for class action status in the event other victims of custody, support and alienation practices seek to join or intervene. This is a comprehensive challenge based upon rights protected under our Constitution and can be viewed in its entirety (the “Member Case”) on federal pacer docket and elsewhere on this site. A planning session surrounding this case and a national Parenting Rights Convention is scheduled for December 26-27, 2010 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, see details on this site.
