Extraordinary Case Focuses on Judicial Ethics and Court Abuses
An unprecedented case docketed in the Supreme Court on June 17, 2016 became more extraordinary when Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lashed out at a presidential candidate one month later. After working its way through federal and state courts, the judicial whistle blower action, Leon Koziol v United States District Court, finally reached our high court.
At the core of the case is a targeted website which exposes corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. Maintained by a parental advocate with over 25 years of litigation experience, it exposes corruption in our third branch of government and resulted in severe retributions for the sponsor and judicial whistle blower, Dr. Leon R. Koziol.
The website, http://www.leonkoziol.com was subjected to a variety of discreet and overt forms of government retaliation including an unconstitutional gag order imposed by a family judge eventually lifted when a mandamus action was filed in New York Supreme Court. This site also featured a number of anti-liberal posts defending Donald Trump since August, 2015.
The action seeks recourse for political activity outside the scope of judicial office which is then applied in decision making processes beyond the knowledge or fair input of adversely impacted litigants. It is a First and Fourteenth Amendment case committed to improving the conduct of our justice system through the supervisory jurisdiction of our highest court.
With a conference date now set by the Justices for September 26, 2016, Dr. Koziol was forced to file a motion on August 9, 2016 seeking disqualification of Justice Ginsburg from Case No. 15-1519. It also seeks an adjournment until after election day to permit good government groups and interested parties including Donald Trump to file amicus briefs.
Such a motion is not new but rarely employed as it was by the Sierra Club in the 2004 case of Cheney v United States District Court, directed to Justice Scalia. The opening statement of the motion here is reprinted below:
On June 17, 2016, this Court docketed Case No. 15-1519 entitled Leon R. Koziol v United States District Court for the Northern District of New York. It is an extraordinary action based, inter alia, on this Court’s ruling in Cheney v United States District Court for the District of Columbia, 542 US 367 (2004). It seeks vital recourse for civil rights violations by judges and their agents who impeded access to this Court. These violations were conceived beyond the scope of judicial office and executed through an abuse of such office. They comprise retributions for petitioner’s ten year exposure of corruption in our third branch of government.
It is an ordeal that reads like a John Grisham novel but plays out in real life as a dark side to justice meted out against judicial whistle blowers as a way of covering up serious misconduct. It is a lesson for advocates of free speech and press everywhere who dare to risk their families and livelihoods on the misplaced notion that those entrusted with the highest duty of safeguarding our constitutional rights will do so even when they are themselves the necessary subjects of public criticism.
Quite apart from the unconscionable injuries inflicted upon a native born American, these violations have serious implications for all citizens in that they usurp the self-governing authority of a free society, they make the case that other whistle blowers such as Edward Snowden can never expect fair treatment in the states, and that money and influence will invariably prevail over the rule of law in our nation’s courts. Indeed, on all fronts and in all branches of government, we are at a crossroads in that never ending quest to guarantee “liberty and justice for all.”
