New case management and online public access systems, which have been installed in recent decades in the banks, prisons, and courts worldwide will be explored, both as potential enabling tools for high-level fraud, Judicial Corruption, and dysfunctional regulation, and also as an area for new research opportunities, based on data mining methodologies.

In the United States: A well-known constitutional scholar and law school dean compared already a decade ago - after conducting his own independent investigation - the conduct of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, to "the most repressive dictators and police states...", [vi] another law school dean opined that "...judges tried and sentenced a staggering number of people for crimes they did not commit"; [vii] an official government report recommended in 2006 that the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles "must be investigated relative to the integrity of the system"; [viii] a well-known constitutional scholar and law school professor, acting in his capacity as Senior Counsel for the US Department of Justice, Access to Justice Initiative, recently chided the Chief Justices of the several states that they may "become indistinguishable from courts of third world nations", [ix] and the highly-respected, long-term Chair of the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary called already a couple of years ago for a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission".
