Loopholes for Criminality in the State and US Courts – False Appearances by Attorneys

Loopholes for Criminality in the State and US Courts – False Appearances by Unauthorized Attorneys

____

Regular citizens are not the beneficiaries of such loopholes. The privilege is reserved for large corporations (particularly banks) and government officials.

____

Los Angeles, April 9 - responding on request, Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, detailed a common loophole, which undermines the integrity of the state and US courts from coast to coast, through the conduct of pretense litigation, where one of the parties (typically - large financial institutions) is in fact never represented in court, but has an impostor appear in court instead.

When an attorney appears in court on behalf of a party, the attorney should be authorized as Attorney of Record for that party. That means that the attorney is authorized to appear, sign and file papers on behalf of the represented party in court.

However, both US and state courts made the requirement for an attorney to clearly certify that he/she is in fact Attorney of Record vague and ambiguous.

The result is that attorneys often appear in the courts on behalf of parties, while not authorized to do so - as impostors.

This loophole may sound strange to the average person. Regular citizens are not the beneficiaries of such loopholes. The privilege is reserved for large corporations (particularly banks) and government officials.

The loophole permits attorneys to appear, file false papers, make false declarations, obstruct and pervert justice, while their purported clients benefit from complete deniability of any criminality.

Needless to say, such criminal conduct is unlikely to take place absent collusion by judges and clerks of the state and US courts.

Examples:

1) Appearances of attorneys, who are not Attorneys of Record, with "no communications with client clause", as detailed in the March 5, 2008 Memorandum Opinion of the Hon Jeff Bohm from Texas, referring to appearances of outside counsel for Countrywide Financial Corporation in courts across the United States. Judge Bohm summed it up as "disregard for the professional and ethical obligations of the legal profession and judicial system'. (p8) [1]

2) The habeas corpus petition of the 70 year old former US prosecutor Richard Fine. Richard Fine exposed, publicized, and rebuked the taking by ALL judges of Los Angeles County of "not permitted" payments ("Bribes"). On March 4, 2009, he was arrested in open court in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, in the city of Los Angeles. Purportedly he was arrested for contempt of the court. He was later held for 18 months in solitary confinement. However, there were never any valid papers for his arrest and imprisonment. Instead, he was held under false and deliberately misleading papers, stating that he was arrested and imprisoned on location and by authority of the non-existent "Municipal Court of San Pedro".

When Richard Fine filed his habeas corpus petition in the US District Court in Los Angeles, the Sheriff, named Defendant, refused to respond. Instead, Attorney Kevin McCormick appeared in court, pretending to represent Judge David Yaffe and the Superior Court of California. Attorney McCormick filed false papers, false declarations, to extend the false imprisonment of Richard Fine. However, Attorney McCormick never filed any declaration by any of his purported clients in the case, and no record that was clearly obtained from the court file and his purported clients in the case either. As later turned out, Attorney McCormick was never retained and never authorized to appear on behalf of Judge David Yaffe and the Superior Court of California. [2]

3) The loophole is employed as we speak, in the fraud perpetrated today in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, by Judge Peter Meeka, Bank of America, and Attorney Mark Asdourian against homeowner Susan Lomas. Mark Asdourian appears and files papers on behalf of Bank of America in the case, while both he and Bank of America refuse to state that he is authorized as Attorney of Record for Bank of America. In such appearances, Mark Asdourian filed false and deliberately misleading papers, to dispossess Susan Lomas, but never filed any declaration or any court paper signed by an officer of Bank of America.
