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.

Hope for Alienated Parents during the Holidays: Help victims by sharing the short video here

      

 https://www.facebook.com/583583957/videos/299514398777491/

NOTE: The above video is reproduced in text below

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

My name is Leon Koziol, a parent advocate who practiced law in federal and state courts. I am also a parent victimized for my exposure of court corruption. As a result, my livelihood was destroyed and my precious daughters alienated from me.

I am therefore well positioned to address this phenomenon known as parental alienation, and I am here today to give hope to fellow victims. So stay with me, it’s worth your time.

This video may lead to parent-child reunions or, at the very least, prevent harm to families and future generations. It verifies that you are not alone in your struggles. Parent alienation is now a national crisis, and the courts that caused it require overhauls.

But it requires much more. We must unite to get our Justice Department to open a human rights investigation. Because federal funds deliver such outcomes, Congress must also step up with public hearings to study misappropriations. Child custody has become a pay-to-parent scandal as I will elaborate.

To that end I need your help to bring parental alienation to the forefront of national policy. All of us have a stake in this, whether or not a parent, because the injustices harm our extended families, health care systems, community interests, worker productivity, education and law enforcement.

Yes, parental alienation has reached crisis levels, but it is being ignored as part of a lucrative framework for adjudication which still infects our divorce and family courts. Judges there end parent-child relationships with little or no cause to serve the growing demands of a lawyer glut that has invaded our society.

There are now more than 300,000 lawyers in California and New York alone anxious to advance their fee interests. There is scant accountability for the greed they generate through needless conflict, and the resulting carnage is ripe for public outrage. But we have to channel that outrage to achieve overdue reforms.

To begin with, it should be no shock that any conscientious attorney who makes a stand against his profession will be targeted. My whistleblower activity elicited horrific retributions which I seriously underestimated. Their brazen nature can be explained by the gold mine I was threatening.

Despite my unblemished reputation and principled litigation for more than 23 years, I was deprived of my children, assets and income capacity while subjected to inflated support obligations to justify a jail term for violations. It left me alone to pursue recourse in creative ways including a stint in Paris, France.

With that behind me, I can now proceed with undivided loyalty to a joint mission because there is little else that can be done to scare me off. I will get to the hypocrisy of family judges shortly. But for now, let us look at those who facilitate parent alienation.

Despite being charged with a duty of dispensing justice, protecting our liberties and assuring equal treatment, there are too many judges violating that duty when they turn a blind eye to this crisis. But make no mistake, parent alienation is a legalized form of child abduction fueled by profits and revenues.   

If you’re a victim, you already know that these abductions are real. When your offspring are seized by your own government, a part of you goes with it. You then become isolated, dreading these festive holidays because of the pain they bring.

Like a solar eclipse, the lack of love or contact with your children darkens your spirits and may lead to dire reactions. Parent suicides, homicides and child murders are on the rise.

This carnage stems from an antiquated child custody system derived from a day when moms stayed home and dads worked. In contrast with shared parenting models, custody laws require parents to fight over their offspring for a winner-take-all award. It can become a brutal contest that pits loved ones against each other and their government, breeding new forms of evil.

Despite a professed concern, judges welcome these battles because they are rewarded by the number and size of support orders they issue. This comes in the way of federal grants that few know about under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

We’re talking billions of dollars annually in revenues for the states and astronomical fees for service providers. Like the tobacco, drug and tech industries, you are merely their pawns, collateral damage to quench unmitigated greed. Sure, you can complain endlessly on social media to wanna-be lawyers with voo-doo advice, but no one with influence is paying attention.

So why aren’t these judges, lawyers and service providers being held accountable? Well for starters, you have to recall that judges are lawyers on the bench. Because they wear robes and enter tribunals with great fanfare does not eliminate that reality.

As for oversight, a single statewide commission that meets sporadically is routinely overwhelmed. Reports show that California and New York investigate only ten percent of complaints. It’s mostly window-dressing as the band plays on.

Beyond that, it would be a hypocrisy for judges to admonish their own, a blemish on high office. So let’s examine a much greater hypocrisy about that high office and its ethics.

My custody judge, Bryan Hedges, was banned from the bench after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five-year old niece. What sort of thought was he harboring while interrogating children in private chambers? I was fortunate to have him removed from my case before my girls could be traumatized.

His replacement, Michael Hanuszczak, was then exposed for sexual harassment of his court clerks. Yet another, Gerald Popeo, was censured for threats and racist remarks from the bench. A record forty trial jurists were removed from my originally uncontested divorce.

Although much of this can be explained by proper self-recusals, others abused office to discredit my public message. Mine is only one case. How can you know if your judge is taking a bribe to fix a custody case as Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo were in New York? Both were apprehended by chance and convicted.

Or how about Michigan Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a litigant in chambers. He was exposed only because he was a married man. The adversary in that case then sought recourse but was denied on grounds of judicial immunity. It begs the question: Is judge adultery in court a protected act? Seriously?

Then there’s the kids for cash scandal in Pennsylvania and the list goes on. But now let’s turn to the victims. Thomas Ball, a father and veteran, burned himself alive on the steps of a court to protest extended separations from his child. No major outcry, no national exposure. They merely swept his ashes into a sewer.

Joe Longo, a police investigator exited support court only to secure his own justice by committing a murder-suicide at the former marital home using a common kitchen knife. It left four children without parents and a permanent end to child support.

Walter Scott could no longer endure recurring terms in a debtor prison, so it was no surprise that he ran unarmed from a support warrant at a traffic stop. But it was a shock when the cop gave chase and elected to shoot his target dead five times in the back.

That cop is now doing time in a federal prison. Police officers should be doing police work. Instead, they are being exploited as debt collectors. It raises another question of whether government is now killing for money. Without a concealed by-stander and video, this cop would have gotten away with his false reports.

Only last month, Chad Read was also shot dead unarmed by the boyfriend of his son’s mother. That killer interrupted an argument between the parents during a child exchange at her home. Such arguments occur every day across the country.

But now, picking up your children can become a scene from the wild west as the killer’s lawyer claims self-defense under a no-retreat law in Texas. Is it any wonder that many parents today are walking away from their responsibilities, yet another form of alienation? A human being can handle only so much court insanity only to be blamed for it with costly psychiatric exams.  

And how about the children who are supposedly being protected by those courts? Two-year old, Gabriella Boyd, was murdered by her mother in 2018 rather than surrender to a custody change order. She is now serving a life sentence.

Eight-year old, Thomas Valva, died of hypothermia due to the abuse of his NYPD father last year, and two-year old, Kyra Franchetti, was victim of a murder-suicide by her father who burned down their home. A news reporter disclosed that more than 700 deaths are not publicized by child protection agencies.

This holiday season, countless moms and dads will be denied contact with their little ones. Meanwhile parent alienators will be working overtime to brainwash them to hate the other parent. Their motivations are boundless and often psychotic.

Here at my websites, You-Tube channel, publications and reform events around the country, you can obtain highly qualified options for taking action to stop the carnage. Judges, lawyers and politicians only respond to numbers and influence. 

First, visit my personal site, Leon Koziol.com for updates and valuable information. There is no legal fee for this. You can also subscribe to my talk program, Leon’s Library, on YouTube.

Second, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website. The programs there focus on mediation, self-help and strategies to keep you out of these courts. It may save you thousands in fees.

Third, in dire matters, contact the Citizen Commission Against Corruption, a nonprofit doing the job of oversight agencies. Precedent litigation is among our weapons. Your donations are tax deductible, without which we cannot fight special interests.

Fourth, my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris, provides education and intrigue. It can be obtained at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon or major bookseller on-line.

Fifth, I have published a citizen petition against parent alienation on Change.org. All you have to do is sign it, short and simple.  

Finally, you can join any of the reform events I sponsor around the country. They include a three-day gathering known as the Parent March on Washington which I hope to repeat.

In 2019, it featured a lobby day in Congress, expert speakers at a hotel ballroom, a march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort, and a candlelight vigil for the lives lost in these matters. Currently a networking program, Amber Appeal, is underway to provide information regarding absentee children.

Thank you. Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Lawyers to Litigants: Thanks for the fees in divorce and family courts, $10 million from three clients alone!

Dr. Leon Koziol, Director

Parenting Rights Institute

Former trial attorney and judicial whistleblower

$5 million was spent in divorce fees by Dr. Eric Braverman, now in bankruptcy, $2 million by Professor Anthony Pappas without child custody issue, both in NYC, and another $2 million from small business owner, Mike Seale, to become a record for upstate Warren County. That’s nearly $10 million for three clients alone. Unlike other professions, there’s no insurance for this.

As I continue to warn such victims, if you have the resources, they’ll take every last dollar for every needless service they can concoct. They will remind you that “it’s the law” (which they created) that requires filings, petitions, motions and appeals. They dupe you into believing they are acting in the “best interests” of your children even though they know nothing about them, never conceived or birthed them, and had nothing to do with the demands of upbringing.

Indeed, many of these court predators never had children after exiting law school during a lawyer glut hungry to find anything for a fee. And yet, time and again you fall prey to their slick sound bites, only $5,000 up front before they bill you to death. You have fallen into the web of a black-widow spider, and you can’t do anything to escape, scrambling from one law office to another after regular disappointments or malpractice in search of elusive justice.

If you are successful in any of this, you might boast of your exploits against your “adversary” (the mom or dad of your own children). But the truth is, in the end, it’s the lawyers on both sides of this barbaric process who are celebrating in chambers or local country club. Come on man, as Joe Biden would say, why do you think they scrutinize your financials? It’s not so much to get you that so-called “award.” It’s to gauge how much they can bill you.

When you are tapped out, it’s suddenly time to settle. Phone calls are not returned so regularly. And your children have been deprived of their college funds, the other parent with an extended family and/or their faith in your example. So why should anyone wonder why a whistleblower like me was so viciously targeted? I’ve been exposing this corruption for more than ten years only to confirm that this is a gold mine beyond reach of accountability.

To be sure, what can a “lone wolf,” victimized dad, and conscientious attorney accomplish without financial or organizational support against bar associations and special interests?

So the best thing we can do in our foxholes is to educate one another on the realities of this epidemic. We must choose private resolution over greed, ego and vendettas. The latter is what these predators crave. Putting them out of business turns out to be your best weapon based on their refusal to restrain and reform their gluttonous practices.

To that end, subscribe to our YouTube channel, Leon’s Library, our highly censored website at http://www.leonkoziol.com, and get vital assistance at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. If your ordeal is sufficiently outrageous, contact the Citizen Commission Against Corruption, Inc., a nonprofit devoted to keeping our public institutions accountable at (315) 864-8176.

Help us where you can. At the very least we all deserve a thankful greeting card from these unscrupulous lawyers and service providers during the holidays.

A great holiday gift for your lawyer, judge, the unwary litigant and those who properly seek to educate themselves: newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris, available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, publisher Author House, or any major bookseller on-line,

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?

Steven Boyd feature: A father loses his child to a deranged mom doing a life sentence

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.

Billion Dollar Casino Invalided by State Supreme Court in Case Brought by Attorney Leon Koziol Later Targeted For Exposing Court Corruption

As followers of this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, are aware, whistleblower attorney Leon Koziol has been persecuted by his profession after nearly 25 years of unblemished practice as a civil rights attorney in federal and state courts. Among the 40 trial jurists removed from his originally uncontested divorce, one was permanently banned from the family court bench by New York’s high court after the judge admitted to sexual abuse of his handicapped, five-year old niece (Bryan Hedges). Koziol was vindicated again when Hedge’s replacement judge, Michael Hanuszczak, was forced to resign after being found guilty of harassing his court clerks. Yet another replacement, Utica City Court Judge Gerald Popeo (no longer a judge) was publicly censored by a state judicial commission for racist remarks and physical threats from the bench.

This kind of exposure was obviously a public relations disaster for both federal and state judiciaries when coupled with court filings, lobby initiatives and protest marches in Washington and elsewhere which Leon sponsored to influence a federal investigation of Title IV-D funding abuses and human rights violations in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Indeed the most recent federal judge who dismissed one such filing was removed from a case by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for concocting a human gene for decision making that would not be discovered by the scientific community in “another fifty years.” The appeals court based its removal of Judge Gary Sharpe on the loss of public confidence which he caused to our judiciary by such omnipotence , United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011).

As most of us in the reform movement know, the best way of suppressing a highly qualified whistleblower is to attack his credibility and undermine his income producing capacity. Over a twelve year period, a collection of judges and lawyers in upstate New York did exactly that with a record period of law license suspensions, parental alienation and ultimate death threat based on an orchestrated child support debt. This long term persecution nearly cost Leon his life and forced him to seek human rights protection overseas. Too extensive an ordeal for conventional modes of public disclosure, it is now summarized in Leon’s newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris. Get a free insight at http://www.whistleblowerinparis.com. The book is available at Barnes and Noble stores and major bookseller sites.

To offset the defamation wrongly inflicted on this whistleblower, it has become necessary to recite Leon’s accomplishments on this site, in court filings, news releases, and reports to various oversight authorities. Put another way, you can always abuse public office by destroying a critic’s reputation but you cannot erase the achievements which support the credibility of a vital public message. One such achievement is a series of successful decisions in federal and state court in which Leon single-handedly invalidated a billion dollar casino compact against high profile law firms such as Cravath, Swaine and Moore. So humiliating were these defeats that they generated no public comment. Shockingly, they went so far as to dilute Leon’s identity as the successful plaintiff attorney by placing him alongside the law firm, Bond, Schoeneck & King, which did not assist or represent in any way. Look them up at Oneida Indian Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F.Supp.2d 71 (NDNY 2000) and Peterman v Pataki, 2004 NY Slip Op 51092. The headline story in the Las Vegas Sun is found below.
