?Rampart?, the movie, starring Steve Buscemi, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, and Ice Cube, is expected to be release soon. ?Under conditions of the justice system of the United States today, a Hollywood movie is the best chance to finally get the Rampart-FIPs released. It is a Human Rights disaster of historic proportions. International scrutiny of the US justice system is urgently needed.?

Racketeering complaint against David Pasternak and the Los Angeles Superior Court posted by the International Criminal Bar (ICB); international criminal indictment more likely against Rampart Judge Jacqueline A Connor.

“Rampart”, the movie, starring Steve Buscemi, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, and Ice Cube, is expected to be release soon. “Under conditions of the justice system of the United States today, a Hollywood movie is the best chance to finally get the Rampart-FIPs released. It is a Human Rights disaster of historic proportions. International scrutiny of the US justice system is urgently needed.”

Los Angeles, May 15 – racketeering complaint, filed by Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO) against Attorney David Pasternak and the Los Angeles Superior Court was posted by the International Criminal Bar (ICB). [[i]] The International Criminal Bar (ICB) was created in 2002 at the Conference of Montréal, attended by more than 350 counsels representing bar associations, counsels’ associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from 48 countries. ICB attorneys appear before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The complaint against Pasternak and the Los Angeles Superior Court pertained to a pattern of racketeering therough simulated receiverships in the court

The complaint was originally filed with US Attorney Office, Central District of California, by Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, against Attorney David Pasternak, the Superior Court of California, and others for public corruption, deprivation of rights, and racketeering in simulated receiverships operations at the Court. The complaint alleged that Attorney David Pasternak appeared in numerous cases as a “Receiver” with no authority at all, as part of a pattern of operating receiverships at the court with no legal foundation, and thereby looting persons coming to the Court, where they expect honest court services. [[ii]]

The case of David Pasternak is of particular interest, since it reflects the deep level of institutional corruption of the California courts and legal profession. David Pasternak served as:
President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association
Member of the California Judicial Council
President of Bet Tzedek – the Los Angeles “House of Justice”
Based on review of grant deeds in the office of the Los Angeles County Registrar/Recorder, Dr Zernik suggests that “Pasternak is most likely involved in more real estate fraud cases in Los Angeles County than any other person alive.” [[iii]]

Dr Zernik’s opinion of David Pasternak’s conduct is supported by a highly decorated FBI veteran, who opined regarding Pasternak’s conduct “fraud being committed”, and recommended that “investigation should be immediately instituted”. [[iv]]

Simulated legal process is the most common form of corruption of the state and US courts today

“Simulated legal process, where people are subjected to orders and judgments, which the courts themselves never considered valid orders and judgments, just pretense, is the most common form of corruption in the state and US courts today,” says Dr Zernik. The practice is common in both obscure and high profile cases, from the lowest courts to the highest court of the land. [[v]]

Similar conduct is found relative to judges presiding with no Assignment Orders, referees, debtor examiners, conservators, and others appearing with no Appointment Orders, and attorneys appearing with no authorization as Attorneys of Records. “The state and US courts permit the routine perversion of the judicial process,” says Dr Zernik.

“Corruption of the courts and the legal profession” in California were noted by an official 2010 United Nations Human Rights Council report.

In 2010, Dr Zernik submitted on behalf of Human Rights Alert (NGO) report to the United Nations Human Rights Council, as part of the first ever UPR (Universal Periodic Review) of Human Rights in the United States. The report was later incorporated into the official Staff Report of the UPR, with reference to “Corruption of the courts and the legal profession, and discrimination by law enforcement in California”. [[vi]]

According to Dr Zernik, the “discrimination by law enforcement in California”, as noted by the UPR, referred to the refusal by the US Department of Justice, to its highest levels, to take action, regardless of fully documented, widespread corruption of the Los Angeles Superior Court for at least two decades.

International criminal indictment is more likely against the Los Angeles Superior Court and Judge Jacqueline A Connor relative to the case of the Rampart FIPs (Falsely Imprisoned Persons)

The Rampart FIPs are the victims of the Rampart Corruption Scandal (1998-present). [[vii]] They are almost exclusively black and Latinos, who were falsely prosecuted, falsely convicted, and falsely sentenced to long prison terms, as part of corrupt practices of the LAPD, the LA District Attorney, and Los Angeles Superior Court judges. Their number was estimated in the early 2000s in many thousands. Regardless of the exposure of the case, the victims, by and large, have never been released.

The 2006 official Blue Ribbon Report concluded “innocent people remain in prison”, cited judges as opposing their release, since it would lead to “collapse of the justice system”, and recommended investigation of the Los Angeles Superior Court itself. [[viii]]

Regarding the case, Prof wrote in 2001:
Any analysis of the Rampart scandal must begin with an appreciation of the heinous nature of what the officers did. This is conduct associated with the most repressive dictators and police states.… and judges must share responsibility when innocent people are convicted.

Dr Zernik, who is not an attorney, believes that a formal international criminal indictment against the Los Angeles Superior Court and California is more likely in the case of the Rampart FIP. The key person, who should be held accountable for the case, according to Dr Zernik, is California Judge Jacqueline A Connor. Judge Connor was involved both in the false imprisonments and was later the key figure in the cover-up of the case in perverting the First Rampart Trial. [[ix],[x]]

“Rampart”, the movie, starring Steve Buscemi, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, and Ice Cube, is expected to be release soon. [[xi]] “Under conditions of the justice system of the United States today, a Hollywood movie is the best chance to finally get the Rampart-FIPs released,” says Dr Zernik.

Due to the nature of the case, Dr Zernik believes that an international criminal court is more likely to assume jurisdiction in the case of the Rampart-FIPs.

“It is a Human Rights disaster of historic proportions,” concludes Dr Zernik, “international scrutiny of the US justice system is urgently needed.”
