Legislator will crusade against domestic violence after her arrest for assaulting millionaire husband

IMG_E1249

A front page story in the November 19, 2019 edition of the Syracuse Post Standard features a county legislator and former broadcaster, Julie Abbott-Kenan. She was arrested for assaulting her millionaire husband and taking a baseball bat to his 2019 Chevy Silverado. After posting bail,  Julie will now lead the charge against domestic violence. You go girl!

In our last post we featured a recent anonymous letter advising me that my ex-wife, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, was parading a millionaire, Lou Usherwood, around town as the father of my two teen girls. I also related how Kelly Hawse assaulted me at an upscale restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island prior to our marriage.

Although the attack was witnessed by many, I did not press criminal charges. I simply got up from our table and left for Utica. Kelly jumped in my car and refused to exit even though her father lived nearby. Eight hours later, I locked her out of my home because such violence would form no part of a future family together.

After her relentless pleas on my front porch, I unlocked my dumb bolt and the rest is history (she had her own car parked outside and a nearby apartment). It was an act of forgiveness which made my daughters possible. While I would never have it any other way that fateful night, the price I ultimately paid is everything short of premature death.

Today Kelly Hawse presses on like a wind-up doll with her crusade to end all father-daughter contact. She does not know about other letters and communications which show that I may have protected her in the same manner as I did a former president of our local bar association. My ability to avoid child support jail was as fateful as my decision in the summer of ’99.

Now comes a paradox story for the ages. As we have said on this site time and again, you “just can’t make this stuff up.”

Steve Kenan is not just a millionaire, he is probably filthy rich. The son of Pyramid Companies founder, Bruce Kenan, the owner of Destiny Mall, he provided his wife, Julie, and their four children a 3,600 square foot waterfront home.

His major mistake was a failure to end his marriage sooner as I fortunately did. He filed for divorce in August, 2019, but his wife had other plans. Three months later, she engaged in a series of  violent acts. They were anything but a “lapse in judgment” as Julie now rationalizes.

First, Julie hit her husband in the face knocking his glasses to the ground. Then she picked them up and crushed them with her hands. Like an enraged, dumb-ass, unconcerned about the publicity this would cause her four children, husband and county legislature, she made the call to 9-1-1.

Obviously, as a domestic violence crusader, she followed the feminist handbook of making the first call. But when police arrived, the couple agreed to sleep in separate quarters with the injured party sleeping in an apartment above the garage. No arrests were made.

Now you would think that this would have ended it all. But knowing her gender favoritism, Julie returned hours later with a baseball bat and began smashing in the windshield to her husband’s new Chevy Silverado. She did so in full view of the garage apartment window.

Now this is about as calculated as it gets. Wisely Steve watched until Julie finished her tirade on the inanimate object. When he was able to assess the damage outside, Julie continued to provoke him with profanities from her own bedroom window.

This is when Steve was forced to call police. After all, they had four children, and mom was clearly not going to stop her crusade of provocations until she could succeed in causing the male victim to engage her physically.

Against this horrific backdrop, Julie Abbott-Kenan now announces to the media that “nothing matters more to (her) than protecting the welfare of (her) four children, who have already endured enough trauma in their young lives.” Were these her words or those of her criminal attorney?

Julie then went on to state that none of this would impact her duties on the county legislature which votes on matters of domestic violence. In that arena, sexist tactics have men on the defensive at all times. Let’s face it, if it was Steve arrested while holding such office, there would be petitions and protests for resignation.

I have made some difficult decisions in my life, in a modern day world getting more insane by the day. Kelly Hawse agreed to move out of our marital home which I financed and we both searched for a home for her to purchase. Indeed, until her millionaire scandals, we raised our children with few incidents.

Fortunately I was able to prevent the Kenan type harm to my daughters. And although they remain brainwashed by a father alienation crusader, hopefully they will one day realize how Julie and Kelly could easily have become one and the same.

Maybe I’ll send my girls the front porch video as a holiday or birthday gift.

Shopping with Martha (Judge Martha Walsh-Hood) on Black Friday

This post is dedicated to Syracuse family judge, Martha Walsh-Hood

Today we take you into the courtroom, my first custody trial conducted in the Syracuse coliseum known as Family Court. This is the same forum which featured a pedophile child custody judge, Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 and judicial espionage agent, Chief Judge James (Bond) Tormey, Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day across America, when countless parents were denied time with their children because of an antiquated custody system designed to enrich lawyers .Today is “Black Friday” when the same persecuted parents will find it hard to satisfy their loved ones at the malls because those same lawyers have taken their money to create needless court issues for profit, leaving less or nothing for Christmas presents.

You are now connected to one of the most informative and active parenting rights sites in America. Judges, lawyers, ethics agents, law enforcement and politicians regularly check in along with our supporters. So you’re in good company, and that has to tell you something. We have proven ourselves as experts in the corruption field. Nevertheless we remain grossly under-financed and devoid of staff necessary to become a formidable “Judicial Watch” over our divorce and family courts.

The reason for this is that the victims continue to engage in keyboard attacks to no one who cares while sending donations to their enemy lawyers instead of us. One former ally made this highly misguided move despite his professed knowledge of the epidemic. He paid thousands of dollars to a loser lawyer and ended up losing everything as a predictable consequence. Not one dime was spent here to put his “money where his mouth was.”

And so the abuses escalate. You may think that the abusers are principally men, those public figures accused of “groping” women 20 and 30 years ago by scary looking victims collecting unemployment or welfare behefits, the attention seekers paid to make the accusations without prior report or resistance. Yes the insanity of today continues to reach new heights.

Well there are countless women in those same positions engaged in the same form of sexist behavior. Today we bring you Syracuse Family Judge Martha Walsh-Hood, a closet man-hater who presided over the “show trial,” Koziol v Hawse-Koziol. Shortly into proceedings, a court agent disclosed confidentially in the outer “Halls of Justice” that Martha was an anti-father judge. Evidently, under her “rule of law,” only women can make for fit parents, even the drug addicts that are suddenly “rehabilitated” to earn their “custody” rights back.

On Black Friday, 2011, Martha was featured on highway banners and advertisements as a promoter of the Fifth Judicial District adoption campaign. Put simply she was facilitating the destruction of parenthood through this barbaric, lawyer-enriching custody system and placing the victimized children (collateral damage) onto the shopping market of strangers that include closet pedophiles and coke-heads. We therefore featured a highly popular post, Shopping with Martha.

Today we bring you an entire chapter of the newly released book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry. I authored and published it based on two decades as a trial lawyer and ten years as a parent in these courts. Not surprisingly the chapter is titled, Shopping with Martha. And what a chapter it is! This is our holiday gift to you, the parents we strive to serve and protect across the country. Here you are not alone. In this chapter you will be taken inside the courtroom, a treat which one of our book review experts found very rewarding. You may too.

Judge Martha Walsh Hood

Chapter  20

Shopping  with  Martha

To this day, there has been no finding of parental unfitness on my part; no arrest, criminal record, drunk driving charge, marital violence report or involvement of any child protection agency. Indeed, I did not know we had an abusive marriage until I read it for the first time many years later in custody papers. In short, there was nothing to explain how a gang of judicial thugs seized my babies. But they did, and in a manner which would make any dictator or petty tyrant proud.

They did it over time, steadily pecking away like mangy buzzards over an injured animal. And the lucrative structure of proceedings was most helpful in making this happen. We left off in the last chapter with a foreboding to parents hauled into a seemingly innocuous room for a support hearing. But when adding the custody component, the process becomes even more alarming.

There have been many litigation “components” added to the originally consolidated divorce or custody process in our nation’s domestic relations courts. A recent one, for example, is Domestic Violence Court. When we think of litigation, it is commonly understood as a single case with one or many issues ultimately decided by a single trial judge or jury.

The logic behind this is that we can’t have separate proceedings in different courts between the same parties all conflicting with one another. As the upcoming court excerpts will verify, a disjointed structure tortures due process whereas a consolidated judge is more familiar with all petitions, motions and interrelated proceedings. Under the current system, frustrated judges become hostile to other judges at the same trial level competing for jurisdiction. Litigants with diverse perspectives then complicate matters further to become the ultimate, innocent victims.

There are judge-made laws such as res judicata and collateral estoppel which support joint proceedings under a traditional framework. It’s not only good for a sane justice system but also our taxpayers who foot the bills for judges and court personnel. In divorce and family court, the structure defies this logic like outer space defies gravity. And this means higher taxes.

The reason for that, once again, is lawyer greed and predator enrichment. Once marital dissolution and property distribution are completed by a general jurisdiction divorce judge, related issues of child support and custody are routinely sent down to family courts of limited jurisdiction. The support component is then sent down further to the basement of these courts, a hearing officer, referee or magistrate who could even be a practicing part-time attorney.

The sending court has the complete authority to decide all such issues or litigation components which the receiving court does not. In a sort of elitist “slight-of-hand,” a separation has occurred where the lowly “kangaroo” court is accorded a “specialized” role. These family courts are still trial courts like the greater jurisdiction divorce courts, but they have no ability to call juries or foreclose on a home, for example. Confusing, maybe, but stick with me. It’s important.

This peculiar separation is indicative of the low esteem placed in our family court system, one which creates all sorts of profiteering, public confusion and nightmares for the litigants. And just when you thought it was safe to come out, the original trial court splits again like an amoeba or cellular mitosis into a lot of other courts while adding an extra costly tier to the appeals process.

Unlike other states and our federal government, New York’s Supreme Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction which simply means that its tentacles can reach to just about anyone and anything. The rationale here is that even the middle level Appellate Division of that Court and the state’s high Court of Appeals have limited jurisdiction (appeals and extraordinary actions). Indeed the trial level Supreme Court has been abused to exceed even its constitutional authority.

A precedent example is the case of Maron v Silver, [1] the judicial “pay raise trilogy,” where New York’s chief judge on its high court and various lower level judges sued the Governor and Legislature for pay raises in its own trial court (Supreme Court). Clearly a violation of the constitutional separation of powers, the lawsuit was filed and accepted anyway as a declaratory judgment action to gain publicity and influence, purposes that are routinely deemed frivolous and subject to sanctions if brought by commoners or our taxpayers.

The case got to the state’s high court despite nightmarish conflicts of interest. Not surprisingly, the court ruled that all state judges deserved substantial raises. The other branches defied that ruling but eventually granted the raises through the proper political process. I used that precedent to challenge the lucrative structure of divorce and family courts, but it has not been mentioned in any federal or state decision to date. I guess if it’s never mentioned, it never happened.

My public stands for equal justice did not get me invites to bench and bar banquets, but getting back to what’s truly important, in support court, the hearing officer or magistrate is appointed and not elected as family judges typically are. This was justified by making family judges the first step of a support appeal process, a sort of appeals court within a trial court concoction. Then you get to the middle level appeals court (not so middle any more), the state’s high court and finally, the United States Supreme Court which accepts about a hundred cases globally each year.

The standard (less costly) three stage appeal process is now four (or five if a federal law issue takes you to the very top). It gets worse, and this is where the deceptive snake strikes again. The support officer renders findings which are typically rubber stamped in a “confirmation” hearing by the elected family judge. The original (sending) judge is long gone, and the middle level appeals court rarely interferes with the non-final decisional process of our family courts. That makes your politically appointed hearing officer the Supreme Court for all intents and purposes.

And this judge wants a pound of your flesh through the Title IV-D funding program. In this manner, judicial impartiality has been surrendered to the almighty buck. Support court was separated from the custody and divorce process not because there is no correlation, you learn the truth when the custody judge emphasizes that child support is a key factor there. It is separated because the decision process can be expedited to get more federal dollars sooner along with interest revenues at support collection centers, effectively a giant state bank.

Because most states comply with the federal program, this structure reaches insanity with the naming and assigning of trial level judges to these various “courts.” Some are elected, others are appointed, still others are transferred, and then there’s some you have no idea how they got there. Like a smorgasbord or jack-in-the-box, you never know what you’re going to get, or when, in a process which decides the fate of your parent-child relationships to impact future generations.

To bring this all home, after denial of my first consolidated appeal of divorce and family court orders in March, 2009, my split support and custody cases were assigned to judges elected in far-away places and not the county where my case was filed. It forced us to make entire day trips even for half hour appearances. I know this is sounding crazier than ever if you have a rational mind but it did happen, and the resulting orders cost me my children and my law license.

Politician James “Bond” Tormey is the administrative judge who made these assignments. Remember he’s the guy sued by his chief family court clerk due to unlawful retaliation for her refusal to conduct “political espionage” beyond her job description. She recovered $600,000 after being reassigned to the same far-away places. I was denied such recovery in the same federal court because judges are still immune from litigant recovery but not employee lawsuits.

My child support case was assigned to Supreme Court Judge Michael Daley as an “Acting Family Court Judge” and my custody case was assigned to a Family Court Judge Martha Walsh-Hood as an “Acting Supreme Court Judge.” This really did happen. To this day, I still cannot figure out how that came about especially after Tormey removed Daley previously from my custody case and returned it to the original divorce judge, John Grow. Stay tuned, it gets better.

Judge Daley was set to confirm a willful support violation on May 26, 2009. It was found against me by a non-elected hearing magistrate, George Getman, a/k/a, G. Stephen Getman, who had been suspended as an attorney for a mere six months after admitting to misappropriation of more than $7,000 in client money. [2] He denied my pre-decision motion for his removal from my case.

I was not physically present at the Daley confirmation hearing due to the set-up I was logically perceiving, a jail term ambush. Instead I called in by phone from a remote location. On the hearing transcript that day, prior to my call, Judge Daley opened the hearing with a bombastic pitch that he was somehow assigned to this support case and he “did not know how it got here.”

Seriously Mike? Or was that simply a deflection to make this appear to be an impartial hearing for record purposes? Moments later, I called in and immediately challenged his authority while reminding him of a motion which had been filed for his disqualification. That motion was based on his removal earlier from a highly politicized client case which made Daley look bad publicly.

Daley’s removal there resulted in a dismissal of a six count felony indictment contrary to a guilty plea he had been seeking. A jury and replacement judge saved my client’s career. In parting remarks on the removal record, Judge Daley assured me that he would share my “histrionics” with a replacement judge in his home county where fortunately the case was not reassigned.

So if you still don’t believe that judges talk behind the scenes to target critics, here you have a public declaration showing that they do. Daley never did set up a hearing for his disqualification as he promised on the record in 2009, but he did violate me months later in a decision with no mention of the foregoing. It led to my first license suspension on February 5, 2010. The media learned of it before I did, and the news was front page for two successive days.

At the end of the telephonic transcript of May 26, 2009, Judge Daley concludes that he had always found me to be respectful and courteous to the court. So here we have a compliment regarding my professionalism from a hostile judge who had known me for over twenty years. With that backdrop, we turn to the custody component of my ordeal which was assigned virtually overnight to Syracuse Family Judge Martha Walsh-Hood. She was meeting me for the first time.

On July 20, 2009, the parties appeared for our first custody trial. A reading of the case record would confound any legal expert and make a truly impartial judge want to adjourn proceedings just to get a better handle on things. How we went from Supreme Court to Family Court and back to Supreme Court with a family judge presiding as the eighteenth trial jurist is perplexing enough but familiarity with the subject matter is crucial to decisional competency on any case.

And that is what led to the unraveling of Martha’s fake neutrality, her underlying bias against fathers generally and this one in particular. As this week-long custody trial progressed, it became increasingly evident that her mind had been made up. The outcome was a done deal on multiple counts no matter how much faith I supplied to our justice system, no matter how many witnesses I brought, no matter what it cost the people affected by it. By the time it was over, I would storm out of the court room after condemning the entire process as one giant fraud on the people.

The opening segment of trial transcript will verify the flawed structure and chaotic process which federal judge, Gary Sharpe, blamed on me in a May, 2014 dismissal of my consequential civil rights case. Among other things, Gary never even mentioned my procedural (judge bias) and substantive (conscience shocking) due process challenges to this bizarre, multi-faceted state proceeding. As for the state judge presiding over my custody trial, it can be seen how unfamiliar Martha Walsh-Hood was with it, yet she pressed forward anyway with assorted excuses: [3]

Walsh-Hood: Okay, good morning. Well, I’ve spent some time trying to become acquainted with this rather voluminous file, and my intent in scheduling the earliest possible court date was to try and address the… some of the issues which both parties have raised in a number of different courts… Given the fact that Judge Greenwood had scheduled the matter prior to his recusal for July 20th, I readjusted my court calendar…

 (After dismissing three petitions on consent, the judge proceeded with others): With regard to the support issue, it’s my understanding that (it) was originally heard, I believe, by Judge Caldwell (who never heard any issue after stepping down at the outset).

 Mr. Koziol:  There were some eighteen judges on this case (2006 thru 2009)…

 Walsh-HoodI understand.

Mr. KoziolAs far as the support issues go, and the intertwined, interwoven (proceedings), having been here from the beginning, perhaps I can best speak to that history (neither the child lawyer, William Koslosky nor mother’s latest attorney, Rebecca Crance, had been present for the entire history).

Walsh-HoodWell, I’m not so much concerned about the history, although I did go through it. My understanding is that the support issue was in fact heard, that there is a willful component to that hearing, that is, in fact, before Judge Daley.

Mr. KoziolThat’s correct, who was previously removed from the case, and he’s back for some reason that he didn’t seem to understand… I don’t know how that’s going to resolve itself.

Walsh-HoodBut from my selfish perspective… all matters relating to support are before another judge, although I do understand that under Eschbach and Friederwitzer (case precedent) in custody (decisions), support can be a factor considered…  Further it’s my understanding that the Judgment of Divorce (Judge Grow decision) is now on appeal as well as issues relative to, Mr. Koziol, your original request for a change of venue (change of location to a remote judicial district)… I think the venue change has actually been accomplished through a number of recusals…to be heard by the Appellate Division. In fact there’s a federal action pending for some of the same relief that’s before this court…”

Mr. KoziolThat’s right.

Walsh-HoodEven given that situation… there are applications by both parties in Supreme Court and Family Court (both trial courts in New York)… both parties are seeking custody and allegations of contempt, or at least Mr. Koziol has of Mrs. Hawse-Koziol. Is that everybody’s understanding?

Mr. KoziolI don’t know if you’re characterizing it as I see it, but Ms. Hawse has been allowed to go through support court, she’s gone through all that process, while my petition against her for violating parenting orders, and I want to get to this past weekend, once again I was deprived of an entire weekend with my children… For now, in terms of the narrow framework of pending petitions is concerned, it’s my contempt against her that has been held in abeyance for a couple years.

Walsh-Hood(after denying my motions for removal of William Koslosky as Judge-Appointed Child Attorney and Walsh-Hood as presiding judge)… I don’t feel there is any reason for me to step down as other judges have done. You stated yourself, very eloquently I may add, that matters have been pending in the court which have not been heard since 2007. The day has come, sir, for those matters to be litigated… if you feel uncomfortable in proceeding today, though I’m sure you are capable of doing so, then Ms. Crance (mother’s lawyer) can proceed first, and that would give you a little additional time… Ms. Crance, are you willing to do that?”

Ms. CranceYes.

Mr. KoziolNo, Judge, I’d like to be heard.

Walsh-HoodSure.

Mr. KoziolObviously you haven’t read the petition and you’re making a determination before reading the content of it, which is not your fault because you were just served today.

Walsh-HoodI was just served.

Mr. KoziolThere’s a good reason for that, if you’re ready.

Walsh-HoodGo ahead.

(I explained that the past weekend was unilaterally denied with my children for tactical reasons. I needed that time to recall events necessary for my proofs. The judge quickly interrupted to attack me only, citing improper child preparation which was not my issue. That weekend was denied to rehabilitate bonds with the mother’s parents from another state, her only witnesses. Citing her 90% dominant period since child birth, I challenged the inherent prejudice in my petition served that following Monday morning, the custody parent’s violation of my weekend parenting rights to impair my ability to present any kind of case for custody, petitions unfairly delayed for so long. The judge responded:)

Walsh-HoodYou know what I’m going to do, Mr. Koziol, before hearing your argument, I’m going to take a ten minute recess. I’m going to review your papers, and I’ll allow you to be heard and then I’m going to rule on the motion.

As expected, the motion was denied, but it can be seen how Judge Walsh-Hood was ready to start this trial without having concededly read my violation petition. Moreover, she claimed readiness to proceed without the standard first appearance or pretrial conference which sets the scope of trial ahead of time. Here in this opening interplay, Walsh-Hood is setting her scope on support, custody, contempt and other petitions after dismissing three on consent of the parties.

Setting aside the unprepared judge for the moment, how is a lawyer or litigant to know what proofs and witnesses to subpoena or present before a court more than fifty miles from our homes with this sudden and dramatic change of scope? She tried to justify herself by citing years of delay but these were caused by a denied venue change and as many as eighteen prior biased judges. Rushing proceedings now proved to be a grave error because it only forced me to correct this unprepared judge as evidenced in her claim that Judge Caldwell had been highly involved.

This expedited trial was nothing more than a “show trial” with a predetermined outcome. It is all that was necessary to validate my challenges to a structurally flawed process under the federal child support funding statute. This judge knew exactly what I was asserting but did everything she could to protect the system. The appellate and federal judges reviewing this did the same.

Because a formula under that law requires parents to name a custodial parent at the outset of any legal separation or divorce, a father is typically prejudiced due to his gender in a later custody proceeding especially if it is delayed for years as it was here. There was no need for this “show” trial. Structurally, the decision was already made and only the legal representatives benefitted.

As a full time teacher, Kelly’s stubborn adherence to tax free support and a replacement dad forced me to make this challenge which resulted in the seizure of my joint custody rights by the time this trial was over. My custody (parenting) petitions were delayed while support was expedited due to state court funding priorities over the paramount interests of the litigants. A fairly treated parent is a happy one who will work overtime to support children out of love alone. But discrimination and forced labor, like slavery, will promote conflict and costly resistance.

It can also be seen how courts and processes are needlessly segregated for profit. With so many places to go and duplicative arguments to make, lawyer profits are magnified many times over. Even this judge was forced to admit that child support is a factor in custody proceedings. So why separate the two with the kind of prejudice and confusing outcomes demonstrated here?

All of these issues could have been resolved in one divorce court having full jurisdiction over them. Instead, the federally induced framework produced at least three trial courts handling divorce, support and custody, each struggling to figure out the scope of proceedings. As the costs and job impairments mounted, so did the anger between parents. This yields even greater profits for the court predators in cases all across the country.

Another due process anomaly is seen in the reversal of the order of presentment. As the custody petitioner, I had the benefit of starting with my case-in-chief. Instead, to make this system work, the responding party was allowed to go first. It was fatal to my case because surprise testimony such as “striking my child on one occasion,” caused me to stand up and call the mother-in-law a bald-faced liar. I simply could not control my outrage over a non-existent strike of either child.

There was no such accusation ever made by anyone in the prior record, the petitions, the public or in any incident report. Even the scheming and spiteful mom, by my recollection, never made such a claim. And although the decision did not accept that claim, it was clear that my reputation on all fronts was under attack in this one-sided hearing. Still, with each reaction, Walsh-Hood was taking notes to support her intended outcome.

It got to a point, like the gmai.com concoction in later proceedings, where custodial lies were coming out left and right. I even excused myself on one occasion as my emotions could not be contained in the onslaught. This was not an American court proceeding. It had been transformed into a star chamber, a show trial like the ones in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, a gang assault.

Here there was no true judge. A self-styled procedure emerged as a form of punishment for a litigant who rightfully exposed a lack of preparedness on the part of the hastily assigned decision maker. I should not have had to correct a judge facing needlessly overcrowded dockets anxious to wrap up a case with a mind already made up. With each correction, there arose resentment which, as we will see, grew as this trial progressed.

The reversal in presentment also allowed my custody adversary to derail my accurate position, unwavering for years to this point, that I wanted shared parenting or near equal time with my daughters. I was not seeking to selfishly dominate my children through a full custody demand as the mother was. It is well known that early impressions are hard to overcome, and Kelly Hawse managed unabashedly to assert that I wanted such a shared arrangement to avoid paying child support. It was during her direct opening testimony with nothing but her mouth to prove it.

This was not only a gross anal concoction obtained from a custody playbook but it was countered by everything realistic, from a voluntary forty-five percent support increase offered in 2006 to a successful career in which money was never an issue, at least not until the speech retributions were inflicted. Even if we were to accept this concoction as true, why should money matter at all to a model father who simply wants to spend more time with his daughters? This is where a pay-to-parent scandal is proven under this antiquated custody system.

Anxious to feed into the stereotypes, Judge Walsh-Hood took this support avoidance concoction to an absurd level by requesting that I stop pointing my pen in my adversary’s direction when making an objection. Somehow this was intimidating her, even though the alleged victim made no such claim. This was not only a clear showing of gender bias and the direction this case was headed, but it incited Kelly to make idiotic fear claims in later proceedings.

For example, after Walsh-Hood disqualified herself the next year, during continuing proceedings before Judge Pirro-Bailey in 2011, a desperate Kelly Hawse-Koziol interrupted court arguments between lawyers to announce a fear of my body language. It caused that judge to direct her to face the wall if she truly felt that way. This is how pathetic the gender card has become despite having all of her offense (fear) petitions thrown out over a ten year period.

This is no small matter for the general public. During the same year in the same Syracuse courthouse, I watched curiously as a security officer was escorting Kelly to her vehicle beyond view of the courthouse. It prompted me to investigate. While doing so, violence erupted in the hallway involving a chained inmate. Additional security was called in while one of them was placating a mom’s custody playbook. I reported the safety issue to the court’s chief officer, Judge James “Bond” Tormey. Nothing came of it other than the potential for more lawsuits. [4]

At the same time, Kelly showed no fear during child exchanges or outside events, even asking me during a chance encounter at Lake George to watch our girls while she went off to get towels. Despite such testimony, none of it mattered. I struggled with a novice lawyer who repeatedly failed to lay proper foundation for her questions, i.e. dates, locations, etc. while the judge became more fixated on a writing implement than proper evidence for decision. Here is the relevant interplay which poisoned later proceedings and public safety in our courts: [5]

CranceHas Mr. Koziol relayed to you his desire to have shared or half parenting time?

Hawse-KoziolYes.

Q: Has he… what is your understanding as to why he wants shared parenting time?

A:  So he doesn’t have to pay child support.

Mr. Koziol:  Have I told you that? Objection, please, can I go back? When did I say this

Walsh-HoodOkay, you’re objecting for foundation?

Mr. KoziolRight.

Walsh-HoodI’m going to ask you not to point, counsel. I’m just asking you not to point.

Mr. KoziolYour honor, I have a pen in my hand, if the record can please reflect this. I flipped the pen in her direction, I meant her, so we can find out from her. I don’t understand that to be a negative or somehow an influential statement based on what we’ve been through.

Walsh-HoodCounsel, we just had testimony about a number of alleged domestic violence incidents. [6] You were objecting as to foundation, which is fine. You are somewhat animated at this time and you have the pen pointed. She was indicating some incidents, and I don’t want her to feel intimidated. I’m not suggesting that you’re trying to do that. I’m simply requesting that you not point the pen… That you were holding and taking notes, and I…

Mr. KoziolIn response, Judge, to make it clear so I don’t get accused of that, I’m going to put my pen down, I will no longer write. That is habit. 

Walsh-HoodNo, no I’m not suggesting that you’re intentionally pointing at her, I’m asking you not point the pen, that’s all, in her direction. If you want to point it in my direction, go ahead… (but not the witness)

Mr. KoziolJudge, I would just like the record to reflect my understanding, I did point it in the direction of the bench and her, but I don’t know how I’m animated at this point. I don’t see it, but if you do, I’m going to have to leave it at that. I’ve been very respectful, very calm (to this witness), it’s emotional… I’m non-responsive to most things here. I want that for the record because there is no video camera here.

Walsh-Hood:  I don’t believe so, though there are cameras in the hall and other places.

I had been litigating trials unblemished in both federal and state courts for more than twenty-three years at the time of this pen-pointing admonition. Never had I been restrained in this manner, indeed, not even in the many support, custody and violation proceedings as a pro se litigant before and after this directive. A look at the courtroom would show how the bench and witness stand were in close proximity to one another. It would therefore be nearly impossible for me to point at one and avoid the other, yet one more example of contempt by ambush.

Despite Martha’s back-peddling, this was a clear anti-man edict corroborated by a court officer thereafter who advised me that Walsh-Hood had an anti-father record in Syracuse. How does one control a pen while objecting as a habit over so many years? Incidents like this were many, but exemplified here to show the uphill battle good fathers face every day in these courts and why so many of them are forced out of their children’s lives. There was no finding of physical abuse in the ultimate decision, but when I stormed out at the conclusion, I will admit I was very animated.

After so many witnesses (only the parents on her end) and proof, time, sacrifices, cost and good faith, this feminist in a robe was not going to get away with her sexist brand of deliberations. I promptly reported her to the state Judicial Conduct Commission and sued her in federal court. Unfortunately male litigants are also discriminated there. Imagine if a woman lawyer had been flipping her pen during an objection at a male witness. It goes on all the time. Would Martha dole out the same admonition to derail her concentration, confidence and flow?

During this trial, Koslosky and Walsh-Hood took issue with nearly every witness and positive aspect of my “non-custodial” parenting time while accepting virtually everything the “custodial parent” had to offer. Even my campaign parades were attacked as an exploitation of my children who enjoyed them so much while throwing candy to others along the parade route. The shocking aspect here is that one would expect such auspicious events to be lauded in a genuine child-oriented court. Instead, in “Family Court,” heroin addicts are being reunited with their children.

One of Martha’s colleagues, Family Judge Randy Caldwell (mentioned in her trial opening), paraded with children and relatives during this same campaign year as did every other candidate I knew. Indeed, I dare say, Martha herself was parading at one time alongside her dad when he campaigned for Congress. But Walsh-Hood, “Agent 007” Tormey and politically correct judges of an opposite party evidently render such “exploitation” a-okay in those identical situations.

On the last day of trial, a steady flow of provocation culminated in a seizure of my notes on the witness stand when I finally testified. Walsh-Hood had entered an order I had never experienced in any self-represented context. She wanted me to present testimony in question-answer format which I could not do under such short notice and, as stated, the lack of any pretrial conference. We compromised with a note version and exhibits necessarily taken with me to the stand.

At one point during convincing testimony, “F. Lee Billy” Koslosky objected on yet another anal ground of reading testimony from my notes. That was not the case, of course, as proven by the lack of ethics charge threatened by Judge Hood before “the Fourth Department” licensing court. Now, even the lawyers were being favored as their notes were never scrutinized. I had no lawyer, but the judge began referring to me as “counsel” presumably as a predicate for such an ethics charge despite the obvious fact that I was not acting in that capacity. I also had no client.

By the time the trial was concluding, I had no notes to convey ten years of events I could never independently recollect, my pen was now a weapon of intimidation, every anal detail about a model parent was being twisted and debated to absurdity, and my daughters had been exploited to advance a prominent career which would have benefitted them immensely. Finally, I had had enough and asked to be excused from the witness stand. I did not come here to be abused by a gang of misfits. A judge deserves only so much respect as she reciprocates as a public servant.

Judge Walsh-Hood must have recognized her dilemma because she tried to discourage my exit. But now the hostility was brazen. I was not about to legitimize this bizarre proceeding with any more of my valuable time while elevating the probability of a serious outburst. I was not about to do time for contempt of a kangaroo court. I persisted with my request, and she finally excused me. As I exited with my girlfriend, I made an impromptu closing statement condemning the lunacy of this sexist tribunal. My parenting time was immediately suspended.

That suspension was removed on the judge’s own initiative three months later but re-imposed in November, 2009 after my newly fired secretary teamed up with Kelly to allege threat antics. Although I got my girls back after a May 3, 2010 hearing, ten months of contact and precious bonding time were lost which I will never recover. Such seizures in lucrative custody contests lead to children without parents, and with severe un-remedied alienation, it is often permanent.

Two years after this trial, Judge Martha Walsh-Hood was featured on roadway banners promoting National Adoption Day. In response, I featured a website post entitled Shopping with Martha on Black Friday. It was a satirical piece decrying the manner in which Martha was exploiting her judgeship to promote a sale of children functionally orphaned in family courts.

After my departure from “her” court on July 24, 2009, child attorney, William Koslosky, disclosed a domestic violence incident at his home fifty years earlier during closing statements.

What any of this had to do with my case I’ll never know, but I found it buried in costly trial transcripts, a treasure trove of billable hours on behalf of grade school clients who could never hold him accountable. I also found fables, serious provocations and tales of horror which might be described as a love affair with a fictional girlfriend.

In this particular court case, her name was Kelly Hawse, a victim supposedly locked in her marital home (while I lived our last year of marriage at a Lake George apartment), subjected to meritless lawsuits to keep her subservient (when she filed the first one over child support which was never increased and continued with a series of fear lawsuits that were all thrown out), evinced fine skills as a teacher (petitions replete with grammar errors) and distinguished herself as a mother who loved all things (like the millionaire dad who could buy her all those things).

It was abundantly clear that Billy Koslosky was on a mission of revenge, abusing his entrusted role and tax dollars to murder exemplary father-daughter bonds. He actually had the audacity under protection of court security to accuse me of “terrorizing” my children, an accusation which if made in my presence could have sent him out the court window. Once again, fate had spared us all a disaster due to my pre-closing departure which Billy pathetically exploited.

This terrorist thing is being exploited these days by thoughtless provocateurs to advance their wallets and purses without regard for the potential consequences. Terrorists fly planes into buildings. They don’t pursue proper channels for the resolution of disputes. I visited the Trade Center ruins on the day after 9-11 to volunteer what I could to aid the victims. Comparing me to a terrorist as Judge Gartenstein had done to Professor Pappas (Chapter 3) is an assault upon my patriotism in addition to my fatherhood.

Apparently Billy had been using the terrorist depiction in a lot of cases because he also used it to describe his relationship with his own dad. As he explained it, little Billy was “terrorized” by his police man dad during a dinner argument a half century ago. Somehow dad’s uniform and gun made him dangerous. Somehow F. Lee Billy had beamed himself up to la-la land as he raked in the easy dollars. It was as if that fictional hoard of media had returned, O.J. Simpson nodding with glee, and Judge Ito ready to give Billy eight more months, if needed, to play to the fanfare.

Billy’s closing statement reflected a childhood contempt for his dad which he simply transferred to his latest target in a now infamous tragedy we call the Potato-Police Rescue. How can such a strange bird be allowed to represent children against their fathers? I asked that question before many courts to no avail. They simply looked the other way, and that only elevated the abuse in later proceedings. At nearly sixty years of age at the time, this was no way for Billy to compensate for personal defects or a lack of marital and childrearing experience. You be the judge:

One thing that I remember is disagreement between my mom and my dad. My dad was a policeman and one day he came home and he was mad because we didn’t have red-skinned potatoes and all that she could say is we have Yukon Gold, and I was terrorized. I’d never seen dad arguing like this and, my God, he’s in the police uniform with a gun. What is he going to do? So I went to the store to get red-skinned potatoes and I don’t like Yukon Gold.

If there is any purpose to a judge in any proceeding, it is to control it so that sanity, justice and civility may prevail. Wide latitude is generally given to lawyers in closing statements, but in this case, it was a custody proceeding, not a high-profile murder trial. There is no way my daughters, aged five and seven at the time, would have approved of their involuntarily appointed lawyer referring to their daddy this way. It was the appointing judge’s duty to prevent it. But Walsh-Hood was evidently enjoying this all with sadistic satisfaction. Another judge might have cut Billy off:

Mr. Koslosky, this is family court, not criminal court. What’s with all the terrorism in your characterizations of an American father seeking proper relief here? There’s no jury, and such colorful depictions will not influence me. I’ve heard and seen all the evidence as you have. There’s nothing to support any of this. No child protection agency has even been contacted, let alone involved. And I could care less about your own dad and whatever went on with these potatoes. Confine yourself to the record, and let’s move on, alright?

As stated, the adversarial custody system is archaic and utterly counter-productive to cooperative child rearing arrangements. Here we have sick proof of this, a fee-loving lawyer appointed for unsuspecting children who is throwing gas on a fire ignited by the court process itself.

One month after this closing statement, an off-duty policeman without gun or uniform in our region committed a murder-suicide leaving four children without parents. He did so with a common kitchen knife despite protection orders after being abused in the same Family Court. [8] So if you ever hear about some divorce victim shooting up a courthouse, understand how easily it can occur. There is no accountability for the arrogant judge or reckless lawyer who incites needless violence.

Drunk Driving Judge Merely Censured After Conviction and Obstructing Justice

gerard-maney-picture
Family Judge and Acting State Supreme Court Judge Gerard Maney, convicted of drunk driving after a series of “professional courtesies” were denied in a serious abuse of judicial office. That is a “slap on the wrist” metaphor you see of the villain who is still on the bench.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Well this judge did much more, he put law enforcement in serious danger. Yes, that’s right, Judge Gerard Maney is still on the Family Court bench in New York’s capital after pleading guilty to drunk driving, fleeing the scene of a sobriety checkpoint, making an illegal u-turn to avoid detection, crashing into a barrier (where an officer might have been stationed to prevent such occurrences), and speeding away from a pursuing police vehicle for a half mile before finally pulling over like normal people might.

It gets better, or more accurately, much worse. Family Judge Maney had the audacity after all that to request “professional courtesy” because he was “running for state Supreme Court justice.” When that too failed at the scene, he purposefully delayed a breath test at the police barracks by trying to reach the District Attorney for “better courtesy.” His misconduct eclipsed that of a woman judge in Texas who cried and pleaded for special treatment on the scene of her arrest, also for drunk driving. Both were noted for their hard ball practices in court when sending drunks (like themselves) to jail for the same thing.

Judge Maney received a mere slap on the wrist (a public censure) by New York’s Commission on Judicial Conduct and has continued to enjoy his law license and prestigious position on the court. You can look up the startling facts of his case on-line especially a dissenting opinion of the Commission which unsuccessfully demanded his removal. Defendant Maney had children at the time, he was never suspended from accessing those children and never placed under supervision or alcohol treatment by his own court. A state trooper exhibiting similar off-duty misconduct was removed from his law enforcement job and prosecuted criminally at about the same time.

Meanwhile, I have been denied access to my daughters on Christmas this year because another family judge, Daniel “A-Okay” King of Lowville, New York threw a judicial temper tantrum in 2013 over a champagne toast which I admitted to (without actual consumption) at my niece’s wedding. Yes, you read that correctly too. An appeals court judge (John Centra)  put a stop order on King’s edict because, as he emphasized, I had no negative history, not even an accusation of drunk driving. Like my attorney record for over 23 years, my driving record was (and remains) unblemished.

But we all know beyond any doubt today why this is happening. It is a shocking, indeed unprecedented, disparity in treatment. I remain a target due to my ongoing exposure of court corruption in New York. For example, there’s my custody judge, Bryan Hedges. I had him removed from my case due to his record of engaging in “political espionage” as a judge according to his chief clerk, see Morin v Tormey (and Hedges), 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010). She recovered $600,000.00 against him for retaliation which pales in comparison to what I have endured over a ten year period.

However because judges enjoy immunity from liability in cases brought by litigants (as opposed to court employees), I continue to be denied justice. The custodial parent, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, and judge-appointed child lawyer, William (F.Lee Billy) Koslosky, opposed my motion, insisting that I was “crazy” because Hedges had a reputation beyond reproach, at least until the following year when Family Judge Hedges was removed by the same Commission for admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece (she was deaf, mute and seriously unprotected), see In re Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). Thank God literally that they got that one right.

Although Judge Daniel King was finally removed from my case this past June, and his gag order removed from this website (Leon Koziol.com), he is highlighted here because of an ongoing failure to correct all the damage he inflicted as a vindictive, immature, self-loving and incompetent judge. We did our own investigation to disqualify King after the Commission ignored my complaints. We then discovered that Dan likes his booze to such an extent that his local barmaid has his cocktail committed to memory while his children are in the same establishment.

Now how can these omnipotent beings hold the people they serve to such horrific double standards? How many parents or children might have been killed if Judge Maney was allowed to escape or let go on “professional courtesies?” I have so much more to report in coming days as I begin my crusade against corruption in New York’s Third and Fourth Departments (between Buffalo and Albany). I am hoping to get the likes of Preet Bharara (reappointed as a federal prosecutor by Donald Trump) to conduct a probe into our third branch of government. Judicial immunity is a judge concoction. It finds no authority in our Constitutions.

Fellow court victims: I am doing this public service to benefit all parents who are abused by divorce and family judges. It continues to support my ongoing reform position that judges should be subjected to mental evaluations at the request of a litigant who observes strange behavior on or off the bench. If you would like us to look into your case, publicly or confidentially, feel free to call our office at (315) 380-3420 or me personally at (315) 796-4000.

Family judge admits pedophilia! Would you allow your children in his chambers?

img_0510
Removal order obtained by Dr. Leon Koziol from his custody judge, Bryan Hedges, who was declared to have a “reputation beyond reproach” until removed from family court after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As a dedicated dad, I came close to contempt of court many times trying to protect my little girls from harm in New York’s family courts. As an attorney before that, I never once faced such a threat. But as today’s story will prove, fate or the good lord was looking out for us. Brace yourselves for this one!

Many of our followers remain incredulous over my public disclosures of a pedophile family judge, Bryan Hedges, who once presided over a custody war started by my ex-spouse, Kelly Hawse-Koziol (with monumental ignorance). Here at Parenting Rights Institute, we protect unsuspecting moms and dads from a growing epidemic in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

So here’s the proof, why we do what we do, and why you need to exercise the “donate” option on this site.

When I filed a motion to remove Judge Hedges from my case in 2011, I did so on grounds that no child should be cross-examined in private chambers without both parents present (known as a “Lincoln hearing” in New York). That alone was not going to work, but I had the added  grounds that Judge Hedges had been accused by his chief court clerk  of directing “political espionage,” and I had been a candidate for public office. She ended up with a $600,000 recovery for the retaliation she endured, Morin v Tormey, 626 F. 3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).

I was unsuccessful with a similar action because judges are immune from litigant lawsuits but not those brought by their employees (for identical misconduct), Parent v New York,  786 F. Supp.2d 516 (NDNY 2011). The court-appointed lawyer for my children, William “Potatoes” Koslosky, vehemently opposed my motion for Hedges’ removal.

As a veteran court predator, William Koslosky , a/k/a “F. Lee Billy,” wasn’t concerned about his so-called “clients,” my daughters. He was out to avenge my public criticisms of the Kangaroo court where he made his living. He declared  that Hedges had “a reputation beyond reproach.” And why not? Bryan and the other 35 trial judges disqualified from my case were filling his bank accounts at taxpayer expense. That’s right folks, “thirty-five,” a record in American court history.

Well, fortunately Judge Hedges did recuse (disqualify) himself so that my little girls did not have to come under his private inspection and discourse. Shortly after stepping down from my case to “avoid an appearance of impropriety,” Judge Hedges suddenly resigned upon receiving an inquiry regarding his recorded admission to sexual misconduct involving his handicapped five year old niece.

Now you have to stop and take a closer look at all those noun modifiers folks, to get a “feel” for just how sick and perverted this reputable jurist really was. The little one had multiple disabilities. She was deaf and mute, only five years old, unable to call out for help. And who would believe her anyway? This predator was the brother of her parent who had heard about the incident but could not prove it.

If that doesn’t disgust you enough, Hedges tried to defend himself from judicial ethics charges by explaining that her little hand was placed over his with no direct contact on his ____ while engaged in the act of ____. You fill in the sordid details. I’m beyond disgusted and still shaken by the knowledge of what I was capable of doing had I not won my motion for his removal before my girls got to the Syracuse courthouse.

My ex seemed pretty ho-hum about it all as a blind conscript of this child control industry. She joined Billy in opposing my motion with the childish rolling eyes, etc. You know the type. Provocateur on steroids. This one would have eloped with ex-Congressman Weiner as long as he was rich. Hedges’ incident was remote in time, but the high court permanently removed him anyway despite his resignation because he could run again for the same judgeship.

Impossible you think? Think again. That’s exactly what Judge Wade McCree, Jr. did in Michigan after admitting to sexual relations with a litigant mother in chambers while presiding over her child support case. It was hard to deny anything there because he got his mistress pregnant. Only then  was all his other misconduct exposed publicly. They should have changed his prefix from “honorable” to “shameless.”

How’s that for chamber deliberations? And  what about the prejudiced dad placed on a tether for support delinquencies? He was denied recovery, also in federal court, due to judicial immunity. Yes you read that correctly. Sex in chambers is now a “protected” act. Welcome to family court where everyone makes babies. And now the judge has a child support issue. Maybe his victim dad can preside.

Yeah, as our motto at Leon Koziol.com continues to be, “you just can’t make this stuff up.” In New York, the high court explained that Hedges’ misconduct was too inconsistent with the role of a family judge. Ya think? Seriously? Did I really have to learn that? The quintessential no-brainer maybe?

The proof is all there for you unbelievers, just look it all up for yourself after reviewing the court order which I obtained and reproduced above, see In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013).

This pedophile judge went undetected for many years. So how do you know that your judge is trustworthy? Would you allow your little ones in the vicinity of any pedophile? That is why I have lobbied for mental evaluations of those who direct the same evaluations of parents and children in these courts and why you should stay out of them altogether. We offer a court program which helps you to do exactly that together with other professional services to protect your families and children.

This is not the “child business” as one family judge declared in my presence, it is “serious business,” very serious indeed! Call us anytime at (315) 380-3420 (office) or (315) 796-4000 (direct). And for the sake of others, please donate to our cause on this site and share it with everyone you know.

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.

Top 10 Corrupt Judges of America: A Real Life Horror Story

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 Trology.” 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.

Happy “Thankless” Day wishes to the Dishonorable Family Judges of America

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