While the Politicians were Impeaching…

This 1-second video was taken north of Times Square, not far from Trump Tower on Wednesday, December 18, 2019. It was taken around 6 pm as politicians were wrapping up their day long testimony for a vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump. 

Curious as to the unique culture surrounding homeless people, I monitored events to learn that the man in red was visiting fellow homeless victims to assure that they had sufficient protection for the night against the single digit snow squalls which I personally fought en route to my hotel. The forecast was a low of 15 overnight.

The guy in red had just delivered some additional cardboard bedding for the man buried under those blankets on the ground. I overheard that guy tell him that he would return to sleep on his other side as soon as he checked on others nearby.

This photo shows a man buried under blankets beneath the marquis of a worship center in Hell’s Kitchen just west of Times Square. While he was fighting to stay alive on the sidewalks of Congressman Jerry Nadler’s district, Jerry was preoccupied with impeachment as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

It was a cold, bright sunny day on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 as I drove down the New York Thruway on another assignment to uncover court corruption in Manhattan. A one hour traffic jam at the George Washington bridge made me late for my appointment. Six lanes at the New Jersey side toll booths narrowed to a single lane on the bridge due to vast stretches of ice being removed by construction crews on its south span.

I had already spent travel hours listening to testimony of congress members regarding the impeachment of Donald Trump which was approved later in the evening. Initially I was impressed with most of the statements including those with which I disagreed. However, even as a former office holder and trial attorney, I soon found myself anxious to switch my radio dial to something more interesting, like latino music which I do not get upstate.

That’s how predictable the testimony became, such that the traffic jams I so detest were becoming tolerable. The many reserved and yielded time for glory speeches could not be more boorish. If it was a Democrat, Trump was a treasonous villain compared to the likes of Benedict Arnold. And if it was a Republican, “colleagues across the aisle” were history’s most profound hypocrites, the likes of which would make Alexander Hamilton turn over in his grave.

In the end, the lofty presentations turned cold and grey as the weather was becoming as I finally reached midtown. They were entirely connected to party loyalty and not the gravity of events that would further divide our nation. So partisan were these representatives that the process lost its luster. There was no merit or genuine principle behind any of it. Whatever respect I had for this impeachment process, it was tortured by politicians focused on self-advancement.

Congressman Jerry Nadler represents the 10th District of New York. His district is the second smallest in the nation and one of the most gerrymandered ones on the planet. It stretches from Central Park down along a west side strip of Manhattan deep into the heart of Brooklyn. Obviously this district was carved out for Jerry’s re-election prospects and not for any constituent benefit in such diverse, chopped-up neighborhoods.

Jerry was the “gentleman from New York” who dominated the hearing as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. I must have counted at least four times when he was recognized in a single hour, yielding time to select Democrat colleagues to impress the few outsiders who bothered to hear any of it. I was particularly offended because I visited Nadler’s office with his constituents during the lobby (middle) day of our Parent March on Washington (May 1-3, 2019).

I had been to Washington many times lobbying for court reforms and a federal investigation of Title IV-D funding abuses which are needlessly separating parents legally residing here from their children. Such abuses are causing veteran suicides and aggravated domestic violence, but because of the lucrative nature of this funding scheme in America’s family courts, you will not hear any lofty speeches from these same members of Congress supporting our requests.

Indeed, not a single member or staff in Congress responded to our reports and march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort. After a packed meeting in the conference room of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in which we were promised a reply, none has materialized even after follow-up visits and calls. This is how obsessed he and other Democrat colleagues have become with the impeachment agenda which began shortly after the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

Meanwhile the people and constituents are literally left “out in the cold” based on the many homeless people in Nadler’s congressional district that were taking cover from deadly cold and snow squalls on the day of impeachment. They could also be found only blocks away from that district at Trump Tower on the other side of Central Park. To hear these epic hypocrites recite their “oaths of office” repeatedly during the same day hearings made me cringe given their violations of those oaths among the sidewalks of Manhattan and the family court victims of America.

Civil rights advocate targeted by thieving ethics lawyers, Facebook and now a publicly censured Judge Popeo

Parenting Rights Institute

First it was a trio of ethics lawyers fired for falsifying time sheets, then Facebook, certain mainstream media, and now a publicly censured judge is joining the gang of liberals persecuting a once prominent civil rights attorney in New York.

It all began in 2008 when Dr. Leon Koziol set out to expose corruption in divorce and family courts in an effort to replace antiquated custody and support laws with progressive shared parenting. The retributions achieved epic proportion after he supported Donald Trump BEFORE election day, going so far as to file a 2016 motion for disqualification of Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg due to her anti-Trump political interviews from Supreme Court chambers.

Dr. Leon Koziol employs the alternative “Juris Doctor” for his professional name because an Albany, New York appeals court prohibited him from using the term “attorney” in a six month suspension order. Such a prohibition conveniently removes the credibility of his corruption reports and reform message. The license suspension was long completed in 2013, and it was caused by a secretary influenced to create ethics issues in Dr. Koziol’s law office. That secretary was eventually convicted of felonies committed on later victims.

2013 was also the year that Dr. Koziol testified regarding widespread judge and lawyer misconduct before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption at Pace University. It was the same year that ethics lawyers appointed by the same court announced to a panel of justices in closed proceedings that they would oppose returning Koziol to his civil rights practice so long as his public criticisms continued. It was a year when custody judge, Bryan Hedges, disqualified by Koziol motion in 2011, was permanently removed from the family court bench for admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

That same year, the same ethics lawyers were allowed by their judge superiors to resign quietly after a state inspector general uncovered their falsified time sheets. They were never prosecuted, criminally or ethically, and still allowed to practice law in New York’s capital district. This is in contrast to one Koziol client who was immediately prosecuted as a felon for obtaining a $16 city gas card reimbursement two hours after wrongful discharge. He was cleared by a jury before obtaining a consequentially large civil rights recovery.

These were only some of the shocking revelations brought before the Moreland Commission. Within weeks of that testimony, Dr. Koziol lost all contact with his daughters due to a family judge, Daniel King, who was reported for fabricating college degrees in child support decisions. Judge King could find no evidence of unfit parenting, indeed there was never any child protection agency report, so he based his decision on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (a wedding toast) among other demented concoctions. He even imposed a gag order on this site which was removed only after Dr. Koziol sued him in New York Supreme Court on First Amendment violations

And so it’s been, a suspension of a law license exceeding eight years, one year longer than a felony disbarment period, without so much as an accusation of any criminal wrongdoing. And no child contact for over four years! It is an unprecedented ordeal and a judicial record by most accounts. But that’s not the only record en route to shattering the glass ceiling of judicial immunity. Over 40 trial jurists have been assigned so far to Dr. Koziol’s originally uncontested divorce since it was filed in 2006.

With each assignment, grounds for disqualification arose immediately, causing one judge after another to recuse himself or herself at the outset. For others who pressed on in violation of judicial ethics, misconduct inevitably reared itself, and removal was secured through motion filings. Rather than accepting the systemic retaliation and the state’s role in all this, judges are now faulting the victim of their corruption.

The latest one is Gerald “Rocky” Popeo (Judge #41) who was publicly censored in 2015 by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct after a hearing judge found that he had joked about downstate blacks and upstate “country niggers.” Popeo was also found guilty of making a violent threat to a litigant from the bench. The public censure encompassed serial contempt and jail sentences in violation of due process. However, much more was never reported or excused by that Commission, and this sadistic, self-loving and mentally challenged judge was never even removed.

For example, a former African-American city official and Koziol client attempted suicide in a jail cell after Judge Popeo presided over a racist targeting of his night club. All nuisance and liquor violations were dismissed by a jury after Judge Popeo re-committed the suicide prospect to jail from the hospital where he was in recovery. Prior to the targeting, this same African-American activist obtained a jury verdict of $333,000.00 in a race discrimination case against some of the same people now behind the Koziol witch hunt. It was argued by Dr. Koziol before a current Supreme Court Justice, Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004).

In the summer of 2017, Popeo initiated a heated exchange with Koziol at a local bar, witnessed by a U.S. Marine veteran. It was based on Gerry’s belief that Leon had something to do with the 2015 misconduct prosecution against him. Despite all that, like his denials of racism reported by an African-American attorney, Judge Popeo denied that the bar conversation even occurred. He did so as an “Acting Family Court Judge” assigned to Dr. Koziol’s custody and support cases. His peculiar assignment came at a time when a series of editorials and full page advertisements by Dr. Koziol critical of the judiciary were featured in the Syracuse, Utica and Watertown, New York newspapers.

And despite even that, the same Gerald Popeo denied Dr. Koziol’s motion for disqualification this past week, ruling that he can be impartial. Since his assignment in February, 2018, Popeo has continued to deny Koziol all contact with his daughters. He now stands ready to jail him on orchestrated (unlawful) child support debts. The Leon Koziol story was recently documented in a shocking new book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.  It is a must-read for all court participants and good government advocates, available on-line at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

With this backdrop, can anyone continue to be shocked by Donald Trump’s condemnation of federal judges who interfere with national security decisions of our elected president? The Leon Koziol story shows how the elected goal of “draining the swamp” cannot be limited to the executive or legislative branches. A federal judge who dismissed Dr. Koziol’s civil rights case against his persecutors is all the proof we Americans need to support President Trump.

That federal judge, Gary Sharpe, was removed from a case by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for announcing a human gene for decision making that would not be discovered by scientists for “another fifty years.” United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d   82 (2nd Cir. 2011). Never mind the swamp, that sort of lunacy on the bench rivals Hitler’s Nazi Germany. It also presents an important message for all whistle blowers like Edward Snowden: Stay in some free country where it’s safe!

Please don’t simply read this post and move on. The important information just received came to you at a high price. Share it with those who can help us fight this growing corruption in America. The censorship of our values and Trump supporters is very real as proven again today by Fox News headlines. They featured a black woman duo known as “Diamond and Silk” who were censored by Facebook due to the pro-Trump content of their popular site.

Satan’s Docket and Corruption Politics to be Featured on Radio Program

IMG_0743
Here I am pictured with Sean Hannity at a gala in Manhattan last year when I was able to get Sean to make his first public prediction of Donald Trump’s running mate. The following day he disclosed it on his show as Newt Gingrich.

I was in Manhattan this past week lobbying for a federal investigation of family court corruption, I attended a political panel discussion at New York University School of Law headed by George Stefanopoulos with a New York Times journalist, New York Post editor and former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara as his guest commentators. My book, Satan’s Docket, was hand delivered by a professor to Mr. Stefanopoulos and another copy delivered to Mr. Bharara.

While there, I received invites to a pair of radio programs in upstate New York. The first came from a talented and veteran newspaper reporter, Rocco LaDuca, who recently left his position as a legislative assistant for New York Senator Joseph Griffo to head a talk show known as Talk of the Town, WUTQ, 100.7 FM. It will be aired on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 8:30 a.m. If it is anything like the ones I once attended for his competitors, it should be very exciting.

Rocco covered many of my high profile cases and campaigns for public office, and he will be the first to answer the many questions raised in central New York regarding my absence from law and politics since my conscientious stand against my profession ten years ago. Indeed he is among several footnotes in my book which he is now anxious to read prior to the show.

His invite was inspired by my recent series of full page news advertisements exposing corruption in a family judge race. The write-in votes which I lobbied for were never published but I know they were sizeable. I will discover the number now that I have returned to my home town. I agreed to come on to Mr. DeLuca’s program because my book campaign is only beginning.

The second invite came from the owner of White Lake Inn to do another book signing at the end of a popular radio program known as Gomez and Lisa. That show will be conducted on site. You can listen to all the excitement there next Saturday, November 18, 2017 beginning at 10 a.m. on WOUR, 96.9 on the Utica, New York AM radio dial. If you would like me to speak before your group or program, call me direct at (315) 796-4000.

 

Advertising Campaign Can Overcome Censorship of Family Court Corruption

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Let’s face it, mainstream media will not do it so we have to expose an epidemic on our own, the American way. Our children are worth it. Over the past month, I have embarked upon an advertising campaign in upstate New York to overcome widespread censorship of family court corruption. You should consider doing the same in your city or town.

It has become an epidemic which is harming our families, health, workplaces and moral fiber as a nation. A single half page advertisement for my new book, Satan’s Docket, resulted in a flurry of calls to local media according to reliable sources. The public is demanding an investigative report and exposure of the real issues which two family judge candidates are ignoring or covering up.

You can look up that ad entitled: Can Your Judge Be Bribed? on-line (pg A14  of hard copy) in Utica Observer Dispatch, October 15, 2017. And that was before a full page ad which I sponsored today (Sunday, October 22, 2017, pg A15)  entitled: Is Family Court Becoming A Ponzi Operation? At first blush, the question appears extreme because we are led to believe that courts are very high places and their judges have reputations “beyond reproach.”

Indeed that is what lawyers claimed after chastising me for filing a motion for disqualification of my custody judge, Bryan Hedges. That motion was based on a federal lawsuit by his chief family clerk resulting in a $600,000 recovery based on her refusal to engage in “political espionage,” (Morin v Tormey). The chastising ended months later when the same judge resigned for sexual abuse on his handicapped five year old niece. As an adult she called to commend my reform efforts.

These and other horror stories are itemized in my advertisement series this month and detailed in my book available at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. That book has been sent to media contacts as far away as Paris and California. A major news organization in Manhattan has e-mailed me with an interest in a potential documentary. As fellow parents and court victims, we need to do the same in communities across the country.

At present there is no protection for judicial whistleblowers like me. Judges and ethics lawyers (who resigned in my case for falsifying their time sheets) have been relentless in their retaliation. Serial rulings against me have gone to unconscionable extremes to discredit my public message after 23 unblemished years as a civil rights lawyer and ten years as a model parent. In my book I have compared their shameless onslaught to a Rodney King beating with the fists and batons replaced by orders and edicts.

If you are interested in genuine reform, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website where our ten year efforts and services are detailed. And help our cause by sharing this post.

 

 

A Civil Rights Message to NFL Anthem and Flag Protesters

image
Go Ahead NFL, Make My Day ! And it’s no longer Sunday or Monday.

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Civil Rights Advocate

There are a million reasons for people to be angry with our government but not a single one to disrespect the American flag. The NFL owners, players and coaches now engaged in some perverted form of “attention” during the National Anthem are not doing their “cause” any good, whatever that cause may be. Do we even know what it is after the various reasons cited since that ex-quarterback from San Francisco got this all started? I have already forgotten his name and his manifesto.

There are, however, a million reasons to stand respectfully and individually during all national anthems. First and foremost, the flag is not so much a respect for our government as it is for our people, those who served our country in foreign wars, those at home who risk their lives each day in the line of duty, and those everywhere who built this great nation. The flag is a symbol of our ideals. We’re not perfect, we never claimed to be, but we have come closest to that impossible goal than any society in history.

I no longer think of football on Sundays. I think of other events and other days like 9-11 when first responders sacrificed their lives in the service of our people and our flag. I think of the day when soldiers died at Iwo Jima while hoisting that same flag in the line of fire. I think of the day when our national anthem was composed by a 35 year old lawyer, Francis Scott Key, during the British naval attack on Baltimore. The list goes on.

If anyone has reason to protest our government, it’s certainly not the NFL owners, players and coaches who have raked in millions of dollars on the backs of our hard-working fans. If anyone has reason to protest, that would be me, a civil rights attorney whose government destroyed my career, reputation and parent-child relationships for exposing corruption in our divorce and family courts. Yet I will always stand during our National Anthem out of respect for my fellow Americans, past and present.

Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) Public Initiative and Business Plan submitted to Trump transition team to Make Parents Great Again ! Be a part of it !

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

If you are one of our thousands of followers globally, you know that the Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) has become a quasi-political action group in addition to a provider of vital services and information products to moms and dads in our nation’s divorce and family courts. From video documentaries to book publishing to court monitoring and professional reports, we have dispatched our expertise to communities across the country.

Now we are taking our successes to the next level with a business plan to generate donors and investors to our enterprise. In a recent post we have you an early look at our opening statement. Here we provide our Executive Summary. You need to be a part of it by sharing this post with a p[otential contributor you may know and donating personally here at Leon Koziol.com. Call our office at (315) 380-3420 for a copy of the full report (serious productive requests only).

                                                                Executive Summary

Parenting Rights Institute was founded in 2010 as a parental advocacy group and converted into a business enterprise in March, 2012. It has seized upon a growing market of divorce and family court victims with unfilled needs such as lawyer and judge accountability. In virtually all states, judicial commissions and bar associations have failed in their self-regulatory duties. In 2016, for example, both New York and California reported that over 90% of complaints were never even investigated. PRI has therefore become a private “Judicial Watch” for domestic relations courts.

Beyond that, a secondary market has arisen for parents seeking periodic professional assistance as self-represented parties. In addition, a high demand has been verified for represented litigants to obtain independent and qualified assessments of divorce, custody and support cases by parent advocates removed from the influences of jurists, politics, bar associations and media. PRI has responded with such unconventional offerings as video documentaries for misconduct victims in targeted courts. We have authored books, submitted reports to oversight committees, supplied creative solutions to complex issues, formulated a Court Strategy Program ©, and provided interactive seminars. This niche has attracted a worldwide subscription base on three websites.

Due to its many reform activities, PRI has secured valuable contacts across the country. From victimized parents to network advocates, a ready base of volunteers exists to exploit an untapped revenue potential while advancing long overdue reforms to a divorce and family court industry that is harming businesses, families and our moral fiber as a nation. A vast pool of human resources is available for various contract assignments that can greatly reduce overhead costs in the early months of strategic growth activity. Satellite offices are already being cultivated through advanced use of laptops, i-phones and other technical devices in a highly mobile society.

This Institute was conceived by an accomplished trial lawyer with management experience in a Fortune 500 firm. Unlike other members of the bar, he is removed from influences that could otherwise compromise this bold project. Although the Institute has yet to file its first test case, Dr. Leon Koziol has filed many. His mixed results are remarkable given the lack of resources and compensated staff. Prior successes and a passion for justice verify a tremendous potential however. This is further verified by such overburdened enterprises as Judicial Watch, Human Rights Watch, Heritage Foundation and Amnesty International which are virtually inaccessible.

There is no comparable entity serving a quickly growing market for divorce and family court accountability. The “Custodial Institution of Childrearing,” as described elsewhere in this report is a trillion-dollar industry exploited by lawyers, psychiatrists, evaluators, counsellors, clerks, mediators, case workers, forensic experts and the latest addition styled as “divorce coaches.” Custody courts are now yielding controversy of unprecedented variety and intensity with victims prepared to sacrifice all their assets to achieve justice for their offspring. Donor funding and investments are consequently sought to satisfy this demand without the exploitation. A 2017 goal of raising between three and five million dollars has been set. Tentatively we are committed to a main office in Manhattan to open the same year and a multi-tasking staff of qualified advocates.

Just Another Custody Court Suicide: Does Anyone Care?

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Felicity Frederiksen was just another mom unable to cope with a custody order that prevented her from seeing her “baby daughter.” She recently jumped to her death from a balcony in Copenhagen, Denmark according to an inquest conducted in Hatfield, England on November 17, 2016. She left notes depicting her desperation during a divorce underway less than one year after her marriage in Malaysia.

To the judge, it was just another day on the bench, to the half pint gladiators just another day at the office inciting needless controversy for profit. To Henrik, the husband, it was a job well done on his political home turf. But to the infant and families, it was a preventable and horrific death which will forever haunt both “sides” of this custody war. Welcome to Western society’s version of civilized justice and a trillion dollar industry.

The 33 year old mother, a graduate of Oxford University, was described by The Times UK as an “exceptionally brilliant” scholar employed by the World Health Organization. She spoke four languages while my ex-wife struggles to get through one. How did this judge, surrounded by so-called “professionals,” miss the signs? How could anyone leave that court and not “honorably” take their own lives for causing such a despicable outcome?

I have compared these barbaric custody courts to the Roman Coliseum. Instead of a long suppressed and progressive shared parenting presumption, custody mandates still pervade our domestic courts due to their lucrative nature. In America, under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, our federal government actually rewards the states by number and magnitude of support orders manufactured through these custody mandates.

But in the end, does anyone really care? When a victimized dad burned himself alive in front of a New Hampshire family court in 2011, they simply hosed away his ashes into the sewer. Sorry Thomas Ball, no matter that you fought for your country or were a descendant of George Washington’s mom: no media editorials, no protests, no reform. Hey it’s just another dead parent, collateral damage of a lawyer enrichment program.

Over the past ten years I have literally saved lives as part of a reform effort against my profession in these courts. I sacrificed a lucrative law practice at the hands of criminals masquerading as judges and lawyers bent on preserving this gold mine called “family Court,” an oxymoron if there ever was one. As my followers know, the retributions were relentless and unconscionable after 23 unblemished years as a civil right attorney.

A veteran was saved moments before our Parenting Rights Conference in 2011, another one year later. A mom unable to cope with parental alienation was given hope in 2013, a lecturer was turned around that same year, a public safety officer stuck around in 2014, a fugitive mom described her attempts in 2015, and a doctor in 2016 was dissuaded over the phone just in time. One dad is now a fugitive in Israel after I helped prevent a disaster.

However the losses are more grievous. A radio host and dentist who interviewed me on Syndicated News in 2010 finally took his life in April after years of custody battles. Lawyers, psychiatrists (armed with their 300 disorder manual) and other court predators should be nowhere near any “family” court. “Visitation” is for funerals and prisons. War terms so common to a litigious society must be removed from child rearing processes.

Like anything, life saving reform will take money to achieve. Unfortunately the countless victims of this corrupt government enterprise would rather protest to each other from the comfort of their homes, keyboard warriors pontificating to no one of influence, an entire “base camp” of “talkers” who have achieved absolutely nothing and more likely have made matters worse. Our “donate” option continues to attract cobwebs on this site.

Recently I completed a Public Initiative Summary and Business Plan to attract serious minded reformists. My goal is to expand the effectiveness of our Parenting Rights Institute to expose misconduct where the political oversight committees are failing us, to save victims one family at a time. I no longer sponsor any conventions or rallies because the 20 or 30 people who show up only prove to the predators that there is no real problem to fear.

If you are serious about correcting this growing epidemic and its damage to our health, productivity and moral fiber as a nation, join our movement. You can even set up your own PRI satellite operation on any laptop to solicit donors, investors or purchasers of the PRI Court Program (you earn $50 for each successful referral). My goal is to become the “Judicial Watch” for our divorce and family courts. Feel free to call our office at (315) 380-3420 or me personally at (315) 796-4000.

Best regards,

Dr. Leon R. Koziol, Director

Documentary Preview on Parent Alienation in Divorce and Family Court

 

A book and documentary are coming to fruition regarding the parental alienation epidemic in our state domestic relations courts. Sponsored by the Parenting Rights Institute, they seek to expose the underbelly of a child control industry which is being suppressed by government and media. The mission focuses on a well concealed federal law that rewards state courts by the number and extent of lucrative conflict generated at the expense of parents and children. Indeed parental rights are being eroded systematically by the day.

The brainchild of Dr. Leon Koziol, renowned civil rights advocate, this mission also seeks to grow the number of documented ordeals across the country in order to secure long overdue reforms. Leon has successfully litigated on behalf of those victimized by abusive government practices for more than 23 years until he became a target of retribution himself. If you have an ordeal you would like to add to this mission, contact the Institute office for a cost estimate based on your location and case complexity at (315) 380-3420.

Doctor, Lawyer, Dentist and Engineer Join in Writ for Father Equality at U.S. Supreme Court

Event PH-2016.4.14-DAPA Supreme Court webinar - Rally at Supreme Court-majunzk-flickr
Fathers are 70 million strong in America, yet the prejudice against them in divorce and family courts persists. Children deserve both parents. This year take the time to join these four courageous professionals as they make this historic stand. Do it for the dad you love

On the eve of Fathers Day this year, four professionals will assemble on the steps of the United States Supreme Court to file a writ for gender equality in our nation’s divorce and family courts. It will occur at 1 pm on Friday, June 17, 2016. They are victims of discrimination and civil rights violations in New York, California, Virginia and Florida. Other victims are expected to join on that day.

For too long, fathers have been raked over in these courts. While other groups have achieved great strides in equal treatment, fathers have been vilified and remanded to lower class parenting. The statistics do not lie. Our Census Bureau continues to report that nearly 85% of all parents paying child support are fathers, nearly 100% imprisoned for back support are men and a disproportionate number are minorities or homeless.

Sexist slurs persist even among public officials, evidenced only months ago by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey who exploited “Dead Beat Dads” on his government wanted posters. Stereotypes are so brazen that such politicians are actually criminalizing fatherhood. Good dads assume the stigma imposed upon them, abandoning their rightful roles and adding to a fatherless epidemic which is harming all aspects of society.

Four fathers have decided to take a firm stand to reverse this ominous trend. Having witnessed the carnage inflicted by needless court conflict within their professions, they are asking the Supreme Court to hear their extraordinary case against a child support program which mandates unequal parenting roles as a condition for federal funding. Each will present a public statement at a news conference. They are:

  •  Dr. Mario Jimenez, M.D.                  Florida
  •  Dr. Leon R. Koziol, J.D.                     New York
  •  Dr. Daniel Pestana, DDS                  California
  •  John Bautista, Jr. BSME, MBA         Virginia 

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol is filing for a writ of certiorari (Click Here to View) at that time and he can be contacted for further information at (315) 796-4000.

Sean Hannity Answers Leon Koziol on Trump VP: Newt Gingrich

New York City, May 15, 2016

Well you heard it today on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallacebut the question was posed by Leon Koziol publicly the night before at a fundraising gala in Manhattan. After thrilling attendees with politics and his enthusiasm for Donald Trump, keynote speaker Sean Hannity boldly opened himself up to questions. Leon stepped forward and put him on the spot.

“Who should be Trump’s VP and why not you?”

Sean quickly reacted “not me, but I can tell you who I think it should be: Newt Gingrich.”

The crowd was roughly split along party lines so not everyone cheered, but Sean defended his pick vigorously and convincingly. He emphasized how our country has been victimized on all fronts by a left wing liberal ideology and how Newt Gingrich had energized the Republican party when he was House Speaker.

The gala was sponsored by Dr. Eric Braverman and Path Medical Foundation. Leon was invited to the event by Dr. Braverman because the two have been targeted as fathers by a corrupt family court system and they have been working together to promote accountability and shared parenting. Leon also discussed his “Custody Court Dysfunction” report with former New York Governor David Patterson who was given a copy.

As a civil rights advocate, Dr. Koziol has been invited to a family promotion event at the United Nations on Monday. Today he is meeting with father advocates in the New York Metropolitan area regarding a rally on June 10 in New York Supreme Court. Recently that court signed an order directing a family court judge to answer a mandamus action brought by Leon challenging a gag order placed on this site in November. The lawsuit seeks removal of the judge and an end to discrimination and parent alienation. Arguments at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica are open to the public.

Leon is seeking funding for a shared parenting initiative nationwide. It is important to join this cause if we are ever going to secure long overdue reforms for the sake of families and our children. He has been working with the Trump campaign because his Democrat opponent has been the cause for lucrative and needless parental conflict in divorce and family courts. The fundraising gala here was to promote cutting edge medical breakthroughs which save people from addictions and costly health programs. Our initiative is similar regarding the legal profession. However we remain non funded to date. Call our office at (315) 380-3420 or Leon direct at (315) 796-4000.
