Dr. Anthony Pappas addresses judicial immunity and court reform on the PRI recorded conference call here.

On June 1, 2020, our Institute sponsored another in a series of conference calls regarding family court reform and misconduct during the pandemic. Dr. Anthony Pappas, Professor at St. John’s University and 2018 Republican opponent to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was our featured speaker. It was noted that some callers could not access the conference. Others kept at it until successful. One participant suggested that waiting until 7pm was the ticket to get him on the call after similar frustrations.

However timing has nothing to do with this problem since the call could be set at any time. For the same reason, overwhelmed usage may not explain it as the difference between 6:50pm and 7pm is nominal. But if the site sponsor, Free Conference Call, can foreclose access to persons other than the host for this ten minute period, it can kill our series and discourage reviews of the recording due to a long quiet period at the outset.

Censorship should not be easily dismissed as a cause given the technical ability to sabotage these highly informative but controversial sessions. Facebook has already admitted to doing such things, censoring users simply because of views they dispute. Consequently you will find a long gap between the beginning of the recording and the first participant entry complaining of his frustrations with access.


Judicial Trifecta Costs University Professor Over $2 Million in Lawyer Fees


Produced by the Parenting Rights Institute

As part of its continuing series of video documentaries to expose corruption in America’s divorce and family courts, the Parenting Rights Institute is releasing this shocking ordeal of a university professor who was fleeced for more than $2 million in lawyer fees while being defamed as a terrorist by a trio of judges in Nassau County divorce court on Long Island.

This divorce has lasted twelve years with no end in sight. It began in 2004 when the ex-wife of Professor Anthony Pappas filed for divorce after 22 years of marriage. There was no issue of custody or child support because the children were of age and both parents were employed. The father of three was a professor at the prestigious St. John’s University.

However it was not long before lawyer greed took over this case when financial statements revealed several million dollars in liquid assets. Discovery processes were protracted with the professor’s own lawyer filing objections based on the needless and repetitive inquiries of Henry Kruman, a small town divorce lawyer retained by the wife to secure her “fair share” of marital assets.

These assets included trusts and investments cultivated by Professor Pappas or inherited from his family to pay for their children’s college educations. He was ordered to pay for all lawyer fees on both sides of this divorce thereby opening the door for Kruman to fleece the estate on behalf of a client too stubborn, vindictive and ignorant to recognize that their life savings were being lost to divorce court predators.

But evidently the money was not enough. When Professor Pappas began filing complaints to New York’s politically corrupted Judicial Conduct Commission and Attorney Grievance Committee followed by public protests, he was gang tackled by three judges of the Nassau County court system. In the video he describes it as a “Trifecta of Judicial Bullies.”

The first judge compared the content of the professor’s complaints to the “perpetrator of the Fort Hood Massacre.” The second issued a gag order prohibiting all complaints to any person or entity. The third issued a 30 year protection order based on a fictitious facial surgery which had no proof or mandatory report from any medical provider.

These defamatory statements and abusive court orders are still in place as this ever protracted divorce enters its 13th year of lucrative persecution. The PRI has assisted Professor Pappas by visiting various clerical and civic offices in search of justice. However, as our followers are aware, it is a trillion dollar industry we are up against with little or no monetary support for our reform efforts.

Brace yourselves for a video release that cries out for large scale protests at the Nassau County Courthouse in Mineola, New York (Long Island) and state Capitol in Albany. Such cases have led to suicides, severe depression and premature death, all for the sake of a lawyer enrichment scheme without public accountability which has been suppressed by our media. Leon and Tamara do their best to keep this complex story brief and relatable to all victims of our divorce industry, but seeing is believing.

It is crucial for all divorce and family court victims to share this video and post, to donate to our cause at http://www.leonkoziol.com and to promote our professional services and Court Strategy Program at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. We are prepared to come to your court, home and community to investigate and expose corruption in your own ordeal.

$2 Million in Lawyer Fees and Growing: The Endless Divorce of St. John’s Professor Anthony Pappas

If you are a follower of our work, you know that we have been coming to homes, courts and communities across the country exposing the corrupt divorce and family court industry. Our latest video documentary features St. John’s University Professor Anthony Pappas. It is a shocking story of lawyer greed which has cost him over $2 million in lawyer fees alone. It is a divorce commenced by his ex-wife in 2004. Today in November, 2016, it is headed into its 13th year of lucrative proceedings with no end in sight.

Although the ex-wife is gainfully employed, Professor Pappas has been ordered to pay for both his and her lawyer fees, making the ex-wife carefree in her lawyer bills. Despite appeals, complaints to numerous authorities and protests in Washington, Manhattan and Albany, the abuse continues. And get this, those fees were racked up with no contest over the former couple’s three children as they were all over the age of 18 when the divorce started. It is being litigated in Nassau County Supreme Court on Long Island. Judge Hope Schwartz Zimmerman is presiding and Henry Kruman is the opposing lawyer with Professor Pappas now forced to represent himself after restraints were placed on his accounts.

This video is a must-see and we will be publishing it soon. It will provide further reason for you to get our Court Strategy Program or hire us to do an investigation-documentary of your own case. Let’s face it, mainstream media is ignoring widespread corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. That’s because bar associations across America are suppressing a trillion dollar industry that is increasingly exploiting our children. Tremendous harm has resulted as evidenced throughout today’s society. So as parents, we have a duty to command our own destinies with documentaries published through secondary and social media. Here at Parenting Rights Institute, we are having remarkable success.

Anyone can slap together a home video and throw it up on You-Tube. But without expertise connected to it, why waste time. Such a video could do more harm than good. Even professional programs with major media can fall short of an ideal product because the sponsors or anchors are unfamiliar with these courts. Time and again we have seen shows that promote the propaganda of the child “experts” who have never had children of their own as they profit from our misfortunes.

Here we do much more through follow-up and professional reports. Dr. Leon Koziol has been featured on 60 Minutes, front page of the New York Times, CNN and other major news organizations. You can look it up on his website media page at http://www.leonkoziol.com. So he certainly has the expertise to do it right and in a way that meets your needs because he is a parent, legal expert and victim of the same system. He knows how it really operates. That is why he founded the Parenting Rights Institute.

For the past 30 years, Dr. Koziol and his staff have brought major lawsuits against government, corruption cases against judges,  malpractice actions against lawyers and precedent seeking cases docketed by the United States Supreme Court in response to an anti-filing order. In May, 2016 he obtained a state Supreme Court order resulting in the removal of a family court gag order. Despite all First Amendment suppression, he perseveres in the citizen challenges for preserving our constitutional rights.

No one else has proven to be so talented and tenacious. If there is a will, there is a way, and together we strive for success. He has sponsored parenting conventions upon reviewing countless cases of government corruption. In 2005, Dr. Koziol secured final judgment in New York Supreme Court invalidating a billion dollar gaming compact of the Oneida Turning Stone Casino, largest in the state. There were also large recoveries for other victims. A sampling of achievements can be found on our Background Page.

More recently Dr. Koziol’s skills have been applied exclusively to assist moms and dads victimized in divorce and family courts. He has traveled as far away as Hawaii, San Francisco, Nashville, Washington, Philadelphia, even Paris, France performing investigations. His work was then incorporated into formal reports and video documentaries for submission to media, public agencies and government watchdog groups. We file FOIL requests and court inquiries to disclose what is really going on with your case. Leon has also published three books.

We begin our assignments with an inquiry at no charge from a victimized parent, grandparent or family member. An estimate for services and expenses is provided. Next we receive electronic and paper records to be reviewed. As a defamation expert, Leon will not expose himself to libelous reports, yet another benefit for you. We follow with a trip to your community to get a critical assessment of the environment. That trip is concluded with a video interview and options for a more comprehensive documentary if warranted.

You are in command of the options insofar as a given case may prove to have an extraordinary dimension to it. The extent of the assignment can vary as circumstances dictate. This can be a villain’s worse nightmare and your finest hour, maybe even an autobiography for future generations, simply priceless. Below is a raw sample of a book documentary sent to CBS 60 Minutes. One of Leon’s submissions was recently sent to its production department for a possible show. He was interviewed in his law office at one time by 60 Minutes host Morley Safer in a Sunday feature regarding homeowner rights.

So call our office at (315) 380-3420 for an interview and quote or Leon directly at (315) 796-4000. It could be the call of a lifetime.
