Exposing corruption regardless of the cost

A single mother’s fight for justice, amongst so many government criminals

My constitutional law school professor Prygoski said to me just before graduation “I have high expectations for you. You’re going to instigate change!”   Well he was right, but it wasn’t my intent when this single mother made a conscious decision to become a lawyer.  I chose the profession of law after watching my mother – a person who I loved without condition – die from the treatable disease of breast cancer.

I often get emails saying “why are you so angry?” I take notice to these types of emails, or as my mother said  “look in the mirror before you judge others” as a way to self-reflect or make myself a better person.

I am not angry, I am disgusted with government officials who spit on the civil rights of the taxpayers they were sworn in to protect. They are making criminals out of non-criminals and we must expose it at all cost.

Other emails letters say “what makes you tick?”  I am now going to answer this question for my readers.

March 16, 1995, was not a happy birthday for me, waking up to news that my mother had passed after struggling with breast cancer for three years.  She died at approximately the same time I was born, on the same day of the week (Friday), on the same day (March 16th).  It was the saddest day of my life having to say good bye to one of only two people who did so much for me, but asked for very little in return.

After watching my mother struggle with breast cancer for over three years,  a treatable disease such as breast cancer, I began a long journey to use my voice to help others. This is the main reason why I decided on the practice of law. Looking back on this decision today, it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The education and training I received in law school is like nothing I ever experienced before, and I wouldn’t trade it for any other life time experience.

At age of 24, after watching my mother struggle with breast cancer, and while working as a machinist, I entered my first year of undergraduate studies. As a female working in a man’s World, I made a decent living, owned my house, vacationed often, and nurtured my daughter into the fine person she is today.

By age twenty six, I fractured my spinal cord at work. It took me almost a year to walk again without a strained gait, while at the same time my lawyers were telling me that I needed a new profession. Not sure what I really wanted to do, I took a few classes, starting with American government and criminal law.

I am the youngest of six children born and raised in Massachusetts. My mother was a stay at home Mom for most of my younger years, and my father was A World II veteran later turned postal employee. I lived in a middle class Catholic neighborhood and was forced to attend Sunday school. Some of  my siblings went to Catholic schools while I chose public schools.

There were many aspects of the participating in Catholic functions that I enjoyed, none of which included watching white men tell me what the Bible said or meant. The same white men I would later read and study about in my Criminal Procedure class, real stellar members of our community. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_R._Lavigne).

Priests were always men, and women were always expected to take the back seat in this so called place of worship.  As a result of Catholicism’s disrespect for women’s rights (and later gay rights), it was not a place that I personally saw any value in attending, thus I stopped attending around the age of 12.

My decision to discharge religion had everything to do with science. However, that’s not to say that I do not view the Bible as a great piece of literature that is. It did have some good points, including feeding the homeless and cheering up the elderly inside nursing homes. However, the disparity perpetrated upon women over men was something that I just could not accept. As I still do not today, but it’s not the reason why I am stanch Atheist and lover of science today. I am an Atheist today because after weighing the evidence, as any good lawyer would do before deciding to accept or decline a case, I see no evidence to support a higher sprit.

As we learned in law school, if the crimes don’t fit the statute, you cannot charge, unless of course you live in Washington State where the criminals are running thus ruining our political system.

For me, religion serves neither a governmental purpose nor any value to our society. I studied many religions while in undergraduate studies at Massachusetts State University, and I see them as philosophy. Religion for me equates to hate, violence, wars, murder, rape, and where pedophiles hide. But I never use all inclusive statements because from time to time, I find honest and respectful people inside religious institutions, such as Washington Coalition for Open Government President Toby Nixon, a man I admire as the only politician I ever met that I trust 100 % ; and my best friend Sherry. Both are Mormons.

My disdain for religion comes from the Catholic Church. As a child that grew up with a pedophile priest named Richard Lavigne at the pulpit, I watched as Lavigne raped and murdered a 13 year boy named Danny. Crimes that he was never charged with thanks to a corrupt deceased Hamden County District Attorney, Mathew J Ryan, whose allegiance to the Catholic Church meant more to him than his duty to uphold the law. He covered up the murder, and Richard Lavigne remains on the loose.

I despise pedophiles more than I do rapists. The difference is simple: rapists rape adults who have half a chance of defending themselves, while pedophiles intentionally pick on children because they cannot. I consider pedophiles to be the scum of the earth and not worth housing. However, trained in criminal defense, I understand that people are innocent until proven guilty, and that because of corruption, many who are convicted or charged are not guilty of anything except for overzealous prosecutors who simply want to make a name for themselves.  In cases where prosecuritoal misconduct can be proven, I believe the sentence should be life in prison For the prosecutor. Lawyers actions that undermine our judicial system is more dangerous to a free society than allowing a murderer to go free.

After learning that my mother was dying of breast cancer, in 1992, I was living Dallas kind of lost in life engaged to a religious nut job who happens to be a CPA.  The religious differences, I a stanch non-believer and he a Baptist, brought on more fighting (not physical) because of politics and religion then I care to share in this blog. My mother’s cancer was simply an excuse to break off my engagement and head back to Massachusetts to help care for my mother in her last years of life. I will say that it was because of Dennis that I know what love is not, and it’s because of Noel I know what love is.

Immediately after my mother’s death (1995), I started researching my mother’s medical files and noted that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer seven years earlier. Unfortunately for my mother, the doctors ignored her mammograms. Instead of suing, I remember saying “there’s something fundamentally wrong with our system if a doctor ignores a patient’s medical report.”

For some odd reason, I thought by becoming a lawyer, I could actually help ease human pain and suffering, something that I could not do for my mother. However, after years of practicing, watching Snohomish County public officials, mainly prosecutors, commit felonies such as tampering with public records, violating citizens’ civil rights, making non-criminals into criminals by using Our Courts to trump up criminal charges on honest hard -working citizens, filing phony Bar complaints against my license for simply attempting to address the Prosecutors and government officers crimes, and conspiring to harm citizens who ask questions of their government officers (while hiding behind government offices) with the assistance of Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel members Linda Eide, and Lin O’Dell, and Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King , I resigned from the Washington State Bar citing massive corruption.

After my six year investigation as a trained legal professional, I see no distinction between the criminals inside our prisons and the prosecutors. Our entire judicial systems has failed “we the people” , making honest citizens into criminals, and only after researching and investigating corrupt members inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council members steal and deplete elderly clients trust accounts with the assistance of Washington State Bar’s Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. and members inside the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council. Again, my six year investigation leaves to believe that there’s no difference between the criminals inside the prisons and those inside many government offices.

I was brought into this World an activist, and shall die an activist. I have only one God and her name is “justice.” I treasure the Constitution as the greatest gift Thomas Jefferson gave America. The First Amendment allows citizens to investigate and report on corruption without government interference.

I close this blog entry with a quote from one of My childhood heroes “ the fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and it never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding onto our dignity.” Frank Serpico, a great American.

My bible is the U.S. Constitution ( I do not include Washington State’s Constitution because those in charge have damaged it beyond repair). I intend to tell my story to a jury soon.

Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel sued again under RICO, JURY DEMANDED

Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel and those associated with the Office sued again under RICO.  I believe this makes # 4 this year for Our stellar employees operating inside the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel and it’s Boards. 

Corrupt Washington’s Chief Activist, and honorable citizen here in Washington, Bill Schiedler filed suit against the Washington State Bar citing gross RICO violations. Over the last year, the Washington State Bar Association has been sued at least five times that we know of, and at least four suits involving Racketeering allegations.

My mother always said ” if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, its probably a duck.”   We tried on at least five occasions to obtain comment from the Washington State Bar Association with no response. However, if someone from the Washington State Bar Association does respond, we will post their comments without censorship.

Until then, we say, silence implies guilt and Mr. Schiedler has exposed yet another pattern of conduct that is unbecoming of any organization.  From our year long investigation of the the Washington State Bar we feel comfortable calling the Washington State Bar a criminal organization, or as correctly posted in March 2015, ” a few small members are making criminals out of non-criminals and we do everything in our power to peacefully stop these RICO gang members regardless of the cost.”

Bill Schiedler alleges :  As members of the Washington State Bar Association, they become liable for its wrongdoing, and therefore are indirect defendants in the cases. The Ninth Circuit has already ruled in Marshall v. WSBA, Pope v. WSBA, and Scannell v. WSBA, that this conflict requires disqualification.

The racketeering enterprise, within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. Section 1961, is an association called the WA State Bar Association [Bar or WSBA]. The Bar is “indistinguishable” and for all practical purposes has commandeered WA State’s judicial branch;

The Bar has a distinct structure based on the essential functions of decision-making, regulation, lobbying, rule making, discipline, finance, advertising;has employed numerous employees in order to discharge the functions noted above.

c. has recorded fraudulent documents and promulgated rules and regulations to organize the enterprise and insure its continued operation under the color of law.requires its associates to invest in the enterprise by mandatory fees and adherence to their directives. the COMMON PURPOSE of the enterprise is (1) to defraud; and (2) to extort citizens of their money, rights, and property by having associates of the enterprise occupy government positions, including on WA State and Federal Courts, and by having “plenary” powers over all its associates to extort their required performance and the required investment back into the enterprise thru dues and performance.

The Bar, by its Rules for Enforcement of Lawyer Conduct 1.2, reaches to every part of the country to influence the “customs and practices” of legal services provided. “Disciplinary authority exists regardless of the lawyer’s residency or authority to practice law in this state. A lawyer may be subject to the disciplinary authority of both this jurisdiction and another jurisdiction for the same conduct.” Additionally, the Bar, in breach of its fiduciary duty owed to the public, operates in the insurance markets by “case fixing” to influence insurance rates and premiums for itself, its members and its clients. This has a ripple effect throughout the financial industry across the United States.

I must admit when I first saw the first paragraph of  Mr. Schiedler complaint, I said ” wow, he’s onto to something here with affecting interstate commerce with their RICO activities.”   For those of you who did not got to law school, it appears as though Bill Schiedler is arguing that the WA State Bar is guilty of violating interstate commerce by its RICO activities.

RICO complaints are criminal in nature.

The modus operandi by which “case fixing” is accomplished is in the broad policy of the Bar’s disciplinary board to “ignore” lawyers’ obligations to “truth and honor” and “never seek to mislead a judge or jury”. Said another way, “case fixing” is simply giving the judge or jury the opportunity to believe in a lie. This “failure to hold lawyers” to the law RCW 48.210 – has created the means and opportunity for lawyers to achieve “unjust outcomes” that would not occur if lawyers were held to the law as the WSBA is tasked to do.

Yes indeed,  Bill Schiedler is right on the issue of Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel “fixing” cases.  Late last year, the WA State Bar provided public records involving Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr sending an email letter to David Thorner ( Yakima) asking him to show other WA Bar Hearing Officers how to fix cases before trial. All this was done at an in person secret meeting inside Joseph Nappi Jr.’s law office located in Spokane Washington at the Law Office of Ewing & Anderson.

In addtion, late last year Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block discovered via public records that Duvall Washington residents Crystal Hill Pennington and John E Pennington set up a post  office box with a Washington State Hearing a officer Lin O’ Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech for the purpose of  bribing$$ Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell to fix a complaint Crystal Hill Pennington and John E Pennington filed against Block attempting to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporters first amendment protected activity “free speech” message and statutory rights under RCW 42.56.

Attorney Lin O’ Dell and John and Crystal ( née Berg, and Hill) Pennington are being sued under RICo as well. John E. Pennington was fired from Snohomish County in March 2015 after his emails released documented that John Pennington was using a man named Steve to stalk Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block. John Pennington fled the State of   Washington in early April 2015. Pennington now lives in York Pennsylvania area. 

Bill also mentions a new comer to us who recently learned that Seattle law firm, The Christie Law Group, whose founder, Robert Christie — admitted to membership in the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel and chaired the substantive law section on Civil Rights and Public Entity Liability, responsible for authoring periodic

  • newsletters to section members and substantive articles for the FDCC In August
  • 2013 he was elected as one of nine directors to the He has served as an instructor
  • at the FDCC’s Litigation Management College — markets its services as “Court Rule 56”

What does this mean … within the context that the legal profession is nothing but a “a private club” that is unaccountable for its conduct – a consequence in the breakdown inherent in self-regulation – these “rules, newsletters, strategies, tactics, customs and practices” which Robert Christie demands others hold in “high praise” are only judged by Scheidler’s RICO Statement.  Case 3:12-cv-05996-RBL Document 58-11 Filed 05/18/15 Page 5 of 34

1 themselves – Society is EXCLUDED from this club and how the tactics Christie espouses
2 harms society. There is NO independent basis to conclude anything Christie and the FDCC devise merit acceptancy by society. This lobbying outfit FDCC describes itself by its members, who are:

(1) practicing lawyers actively engaged in the private practice of law who devote a substantial amount of their professional time to the representation of insurance companies, associations or other corporations, or others, in the defense of civil litigation and have been a member of the bar for at least eight years; or (2) corporate counsel and other executives engaged in the administration or defense of claims or for insurance companies, associations, or corporations who have national, regional or company-wide responsibility for a company of greater than local significance.

In contrast to the touted success of Christie, there are about 3000 grievances filed against lawyers with the WA State Bar every year claiming Lawyers are in breach of their rules and the law. These grievances are dismissed as routine. 

The “nexus” between “court rules and case fixing and the Bar Disciplinary scheme” is evident in the numbers and the advertising alone.  It doesn’t hurt that Chief WA State Bar hearing officer Joseph Nappi Jr. Stated it in his public emails. “Stupid it is as stupid does” 

Another RICO suit against the Washington State Bar will be filed on June 14, 2015, as Flag Day represents honoring our Country’ s absolute right to “free speech” and “freedom of the press”  without government nor private party interfereence with no exceptions. 

Block claims that her next next RICO will will be an all star performance with a pedophile, a corrupt police from Duvall Washington, a WA State Bar Hearing Officer who is accepting bribes to fix cases by using her convicted killer boyfriend to threaten people and retrieve any pay offs from so called WA Bar grievants,  and a Gold Bar Washington Mayor Linda Loen. 

The City of Duvall Police Officer Lori Batoit alleged to have filed a SLAPP Suit

http://snocoreporter.com/sgt-batiot-of-the-duvall-police-dept-files-a-slapp-suit-to-avoid-public-records/

Click above read the above SLAPP written by John and Crystal Pennington but falsely certified by Duvall Police Officer Lori Batoit in King County Court: Batoit is being sued under RICO and under Anti-SLAPP (mandatory $10,000 penalities) for violating anti-SLAPP provisions 

UPDATE: KING COUNTY JUDGE KATO DISQUALIFIED, AND CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS 

TO BE FILED AGAINST OFFICER BATOIT FOR FILING FALSE REPORTS 

Three weeks ago a $1,000,00.00 tort claim was filed upon Lori Batoit after public records revealed that she left a voice (wire) message threatening Gold Bar Reporter Block. Ms. Batoit also threatened Block’s private investigators.   A copy of those recordings were preserved since Ms. Batoit has been notified that she will be added as a RICO Defendant in U.S. Federal Court. 

Public records from newspaper articles document that Ms. Batoit is a close and personal friend to Snohomish County’s number one political bum John E. Pennington. John E Pennington is a prime suspect in a child rape case and ever where he travels (Maryland, Washington, and Alaska) children are missing within miles of where he fills up his gasoline tank on the county’s credit card. 

John E Pennington is also running a fake online news source “The Sky Valley Chronicle” designed to discredit anyone who dares to challenge status quo. Use of taxpayer monies and resources to fund a criminal organization amounts to Racketeering. John Pennington was named in a RICO suit filed in U.S. Federal District Court in January 2015.  

But Pennington’s criminal conduct hasn’t stopped, and since being named a RICO defendant, he now has the assistance of a very close and personal friend of his, a corrupt Duvall Police Officer named Lori Batoit. 

 On April 19, 2015, Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block notified Ms. Batoit and the City of Duvall that Batoit would be added as a RICO defendant and the City of Duvall was being sued for allowing Batoit to violate Block civil rights ( leaving an extortionist voice message on Block’s partner’s business phone).  

 A certified copy of Block’s tort claim was filed upon the City of Duvall on April 19, 2015. Within hours after Ms Batoit received a copy of Block’s tort claim, Batoit filed a false certification with King County. How we know her Complaints are false well just say she’ll have to wait to know how we know.  Criminal complaints will be filed against Batoit  for making false certifications and will be filed in King County Court on June 19, 2015. 

Our legal counsel stated that what was reviewed from King County as it relates to Batoit does in fact amount to a SLAPP suit. SLAPP suits are unlawful in Washington.  This conduct only adds to Block’s RICO and civil rights suit. 

Our duty as investigative bloggers is to scrutinize public officials. It will give us great pleasure to shine a hell of a lot of sunshine on Batoit’s criminal conduct as stated herein using Washington States Public Records Act.

Public records confirm that Ms. Batoit is a very very close friend to Snohomish County’s former Director John E. Pennington. However, at least four police reports we reviewed document that Batoit participated and obstructed at least four police investigations on behalf of her dear friend John E. Pennington. On several reports Batoit seems to be the Officer of choice to investigate her dear and personal friend John Pennington. Unethical or obstruction of justice? We believe both. 

We rightfully call Ms. Batoit’s obstruction of criminal complaints filed against John E.  Pennington CORRUPTION.  

From other records, we know that Batoit was also friends with a pedophile FIre Chief from Brier who is now serving a 30 year prison sentence. The pedophile fire chief is with no surprise a very dear and close friend to John E. Pennington.  We say “birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine…”action filed by Lori Batoit if true, only adds support to Block’s RICO and 42 USC 1983 suit. RICO suits are criminal in nature.

Click below for a copy of the RICO suit Ms. Batoit is being sued Under RICO once the amended complaint is filed in June 2015.  9th Circuit Court of Appeals Cheif Kozinski ordered all WA State attorneys removed and an out of state judge assigned anytime the WSBA members are mentioned as Defendants. 

Block is awaiting Judge Jones’s recusal order before filing another amended complaint adding Batoit’s most recent predicate acts she committed on behalf of the Enterprise. 

http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=172712&sid=3P9K&ext=PDF&lcl=RICO-files.pdf&usr=Sunshine2015K&doc=252796214&key=key-vCgcyry8MG3PdTevxTaE

As of today, Gold Bar Reporter Block has not been served by Batoit, but since Block is out of the country for the next four weeks, and Ms Batoit was made aware of Block’s vacation out of the country, Block did request Anti-SLAPP Protection if it is true.

Block filed a Motion to Disqualify King Judge Kato as it is unconstitutional to issue ” prior restraints on free speech.” On May 15, 2015, Judge Kato did remove herself from Batoit’s most recent attempt to SLAPP down our message. 

 Batoit’s recent attempt to SLAPP down our message and an attempt to thwart a public records request for access to public records, including her private cell phone and private email communication involving Battoit is a permissible public records because Our Court of Appeals held that all private emails and cell phone records are public records if used in any way for government business. 

The City of Duvall was notified three weeks ago that a public records lawsuit involving Ms. Batoit and John E. Pennington ‘s emails and phone records is coming. 100 % for certain.

Batoit

A source states that Lori Batiot and John E. Pennington are engaged in an extramarital affair and Lori Batoit a public officials who thrust herself into the limelight by participating in several news reports.

John E. Pennington would often brag that he had a “little RICO Gang” set up inside government agencies to protect him from criminal prosecution every time someone would file a complaint against him and Batoit was on several criminal complaints filed against John E. Pennington for child and domestic abuse. We have seen enough public news paper articles to document she is a close and personal friend to John Pennington. 

 Under the totality of the evidence we reviewed we rightfully call John E Pennington a child and wife absuer and Lori Batoit one corrupt police officer. 

Block said ” to allow a public officials to file complaints that amount to violations of my 1st Amendment rights will not go unchecked without a legal fight. The First Amendment means more to me than life and to peacefully stop a corrupt police officer like Batoit from spitting on the Constitution is worth a legal fight over.”

Block’s Motion filed for anti-SLAPP protection has been noted for June 19th. If successful, Block will be entitled to all attorney’s fees, costs (loss of income because of Batoit total disrespect for our laws) and a mandatory $10,000.00 penalty.  

Ms.  Batoit is now a RICO defendant and will be sued under 42 USC 1983 soon for violating Block’s civil rights. Block’s amended complaint naming Batoit will be filed in early June. 

Washington State prohibits any action that amounts to a SLAPP and Awards $10,000.00 plus cost and attorneys fees. Block is requesting $16,600.00 for Ms. Batoit blatant disrespect for our laws.

Ms. Batoit’s training records, private cell and emails were requested under the Public Records Act. Under RCW 42.56, all records including private cell and email records are subject to public inspection. Once received, Batoit’s records will be posted. 

 A lawsuit will be filed against the City of Duvall and Batoit will be noted for deposition. Topic for discussion, Batoit’s relationship with the Penningtons and her communication with the Penningtons. 

 Perhaps John E. Pennington’s victims will finally see justice served by exposing the officer who obstructed justice every time one of John Pennington’s victims filed a police report. 

However, Batoit’s SLAPP suit cannot stop public disclosure of our records, and since she is being sued under RICO and 1983 Block intends to issue a subpoena for all records that relate to Batoit regardless of whether or not she deems them private or not.

Stay tuned . . .  this shit is juicy and involves sex, corrupt police officers, and much much more! 

Reporting from the United Kingdom.   

Washington State Bar Association, a license to steal from vulnerable adults

It’s been over one year since I started investigating the Washington State Bar’s elite members for fraud, stealing and depleting elderly adults trust accounts with the assistance of the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Council, several Board of Governors and Guardian Ad Litems Associated with the Washington State Bar. 

I’d like our readers to know that we contacted the Washington State Bar for comment before publishing our findings. As of today, the Washington State Bar has declined comment.  For us this means “silence is golden.” However, if the Washington State Bar does comment, we will post their comments without censorship.

Beyond any shadow of a doubt; Washington State Bar members are stealing and depleting elderly clients trusts accounts with the assistance of government agency employees and the Washington State Bar’s small elite Board and Disciplinary Council members.

I’d like to thank attorney Rosemary Kamb for helping us understand how the Washington State Bar’s small little elite group of thieves is stealing from our elderly to benefit a few members associated with the Washington State Bar’s elite Boards. Our regret that we did not meet sooner; exposing the thieves will take a village ( a village that grows everyday as many of us connect daily).

With the baby boomers retiring at record numbers, our goal is to warn the public to not use lawyers (GALs) and to give our readers some ideas on how to avoid using the thieves at the Washington State Bar, who are using the GAL programs to steal, fraud and deplete our elderly citizens accounts to benefit a small group of elite lawyers. As we correctly report, the Washington State Bar is the center of the rotten onion, as we peel back layer after layer, at the center of the rotten onion are Washington State Bar members associated with the Washington State Bar Boards and Committees.

Onion

We’ve identified the RICO, now it’s up to our readers to understand how to avoid becoming a victim of Washington State Bar’s elite members depleting of our elderly citizens accounts.

Why is the Washington State Bar stealing from our elderly? Simply put,  to keep the cost to the taxpayers down ( liability and last medical expenses), while at the same time a small elite group of lawyers are lining their pockets with the gold of others.

Here’s how the RICO Enterprise works:

  1. The Washington State Bar employees Disciplinary Council and Board members who are employees of government agencies;
  2. Washington State government agency employees are using government taxpayer funded resources and time to perform functions for the Washington State Bar Disciplinary Council ( misappropriation of public funds);
  3. The sole purpose of embedding government attorneys inside agencies, while at the same time performing functions for the Washington State Bar, is to keep the cost down and funnel resources and monies back to a small elite group of lawyers associated with the Washington State Bar.

Fraud, HIPPA violations and use of hospitals and nursing home employees to target the wealthy

Here’s what we know from several cases we investigated for over a year. Most hospitals in Washington State are financed by the taxpayers/public. Hospitals, like Skagit County’s Hospital District, have embedded government agency employees who are also associated with the Washington State Bar’s Boards.

By placing members in high places, or inside agencies, the Washington State Bar ensures that the Enterprise ( RICO, WA Bar) can continue stealing and depleting vulnerable adults accounts, or as we correctly report, lining their (WA Bar attorneys associated with GALs, Trusts and estates) pockets with the gold of others.

As just one example, let’s take a look at the Skagit County Hospital District and a Washington State Board member named Brad Furlong. Washington State Bar Hearing Officer and thief Lin O’Dell is another corrupt WA State Bar member who was featured by Snohomish County Reporter.

See https://snohomishcountycorruption.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/lin-odell-bad-businessmurder-undue-influence-part-1/

https://snohomishcountycorruption.wordpress.com/2014/11/27/lin-odell-mark-plivelich-all-of-their-associates-part-2/

Unfortunately for our elderly Washington residents,  Brad Furlong isn’t the only on ripping off vulnerable adults with the assistance of the Washington State Bar. But he is directly linked to trumping up criminal charges on another lawyer who blew the whistle on his wife, who with no surprise he is funneling GAL  clients to as a result of his position inside the Skagit County Hospital District.

From the Washington State Bar’s website, Brad Furlong’s biography:

Bradley Furlong150200

Bradford E. Furlong concentrates on healthcare, municipal, real estate and land use law. He was elected to the WSBA Board of Governors in September 2013. Furlong is a member of the Washington Supreme Court Judicial Ethics Committee and teaches professional ethics for the WSBA. He acts as Skagit County hearing examiner, pro tem, and has served as judge pro tem in both superior and district courts.

Furlong is general counsel to Skagit Valley Hospital and Skagit Regional Clinics, The Port of Skagit County, and the Skagit County Public Facilities District. He has been town attorney for the Town of La Conner since 1988, the city attorney for Anacortes since 2008, and is general counsel for the North Sound Regional Support Network and the Skagit Land Trust.

 According to attorney Rosemary Kamb, Brad Furlong uses the Skagit County Hospital District to funnel wealthy elderly patients to his GAL wife. Public Records reviewed supports Ms. Kamb’s statements.

Ms. Kamb’s letter below to us:

I gave my story in an allocution statement.  It is on the record.  Reporting partial accounts or only what is handed to you as the full story gives the public a false impression.  Investigating matters appears to be no one’s strong suit.  Not the Skagit Valley Herald, not the Mount Vernon Police and not the WSBA.  All of which have a duty to investigate before acting.  By far a more compelling story would be why your newspaper was given this particular story and why you & I were given no exculpatory information that was clearly available to all of the investigating parties yet went unreported.   

 

I KNOW that I may hold my head high because I know that unlike some I have always dealt squarely and forthrightly in my dealings with other lawyers as well as members of the bench and of the public.  In doing so I stepped on toes.  I called it like I saw it and when I heard untruths I called a few liars, the was especially prevalent in Skagit County’s Ex-Parte Court.  When I saw repeatedly, guardianships being filed by the same people, lawyers who are & were tenant’s of the hospital lawyer, and as a creditor the hospital filing guardianships that gave preferential treatment to the hospital lawyer’s tenants and specifically requesting that his wife be appointed by the Court as the Guardian ad Litem, I spoke out.   

 

When that same Court appointed GAL did an extremely poor job, I spoke to her privately requesting that she specifically contact a health provider about the cancellation   of a much needed wheelchair for the alleged incapacitated person.  This GAL very flippantly told me not to tell her how to do her job and that her investigation was complete.  Even though I had just informed her that the woman’s care center had contacted me and needed this device to care for her properly.  At the time the only oversight was the Court.  Because of the GAL’s refusal to make this single telephone call a woman was left without support of a much needed medical device until her death.  

 

The GAL’s job is to investigate and make recommendations to the Court.  In refusing to investigate this necessary medical device’s cancellation she failed in her duty.

 

In zealously representing my client as well as being a mandatory reporter, I was required by law to point out this GAL’s errors and the only place to report it to was the Skagit Valley Probate Court.  After which I was threatened by the GAL’s husband, the  hospital lawyer, a now sitting member of the WSBA Board of Governors, who between clenched teeth told me “You’ll be sorry for this Rosemary”  after I did what was required of me by law to do.  Report the abuse of an elder in jeopardy.  By pointing out the gross failure of duty by the Court appointed GAL in her inept investigation the full abuse of the power and authority of the Washington State Bar Association disciplinary system was focused upon me for nearly ten years.  

 

To this day I stand by my assessment.  Now that very same GAL/wife, who did the worse report I read in over twenty years of practice, is in charge of overseeing complaints against GAL’s in three counties.  THREE COUNTIES!  Her own reports were questionable, yet now she is in charge of overseeing all GALs.  How does that happen?  Connections?  They know who they are.  They know what they have done.  

 

I’ve never filed a phony bar complaint.  

 

I’ve never gone behind anyone’s back by claiming to give NOTICE when I hadn’t.  I’ve never began a lawsuit against someone and failed to serve them to get a default judgment against them.  I’ve never had a default judgment entered when I knew the person was nearby and obviously could be served easily if service was attempted.  I’ve always gone straight to the person and I’ve always given others the opportunity to be heard.  

 

I’ve never given false testimony or had illegal Ex-Parte Orders entered.  

 

Twice I’ve had issues with an order.  The first time I had a problem with an order it came concurrent with a racially inspired conflict over an incident involving one of the co-director’s pushing and slapping my then ten year old son at play practice.  My son was acting in a local theatre company’s version of Peter Pan.  When my son who very much enjoyed acting and being chosen for a part told me he did not want to return to practice I discovered what had happened and personally went to the Director to specifically find out what led to the incident witnessed by a number of actors.  At the time this person apologized profusely and responded with all the politically correct sentiments but my son and I never felt welcomed again by that particular theatre group and for good reason, from then on we were hazed repeatedly by members of the cast and crew, invited and uninvited to cast parties, and I was 86’ed from backstage even though the job I had signed up to do from the beginning was to be the back stage gofer.  Not all of the cast but a good deal of you jumped on that band wagon.  You know who you are and you know what you did, and we know it too.

 

This Director and been appointed fairly recently as a Court Commission and it was his clerk who caused the problem with the order.  I clearly heard this man’s clerk tell me he had signed the order I had left earlier when ex-parte was overflowing.  I came back in the early afternoon, at which time I was told that the Commissioner had signed the order .  When I asked for the original the clerk told me she had filed it in the Probate box at the Court Clerk’s office.  I conformed my copies and sent out the order to a local bank for action to be taken.  Late afternoon my office received a call from the Court Clerk indicating we had an order to be picked up.  This is when I discovered the order had not been signed and I immediately called and notified all parties.   At the time I was told it was an honest mistake.  Instead it became courthouse gossip.  Gossip over whether I had properly apologized to this Commissioner’s Clerk (who had told me that he had signed an order that had not in fact been signed.)  It amazed me because of the obvious distortions of the story to cover the backside of the person at the court.  They didn’t think I’d hear what was being said, and what was being said was far from the truth.  Instead she chose to lie and repeat that lie to anyone who would listen to her tale.  A lie that placed my reputation for honesty in question.  

 

The second incident came when this same Commissioner who had abused my son, and who had either instructed his clerk to say he had signed an order or whose clerk didn’t bother to ask him and then assumed he would sign it and told me he did so she did not have to say she hadn’t presented it to him, who knows; but this same Commissioner in another guardianship matter failed to ask what a “qualified plan” was when I presented to him that this guardianship was only necessary to distribute a single qualified plan.  Instead this decision maker pretended to know what one was when I specifically asked if he understood the taxing consequences of withdrawing funds from a qualified planned.  Had he simply admitted to not knowing the consequences of taxing qualified plans much of my later ordeal would have been avoided, but if there is one thing that most lawyers will never do – is admit that they are ignorant.

 

Courthouse gossip, like any untrue statements spread distrust of people and situations.  

 

We all are human so we all make mistakes.  Lawyers don’t like to be wrong.  Neither do Judges or those with the authority of Judges, like Commissioners.  

 

I have found that honestly pointing out these things to some in authority causes you great harm.  This I do not believe should be happening in our courts.  Honest, hardworking people should be able to get to the truth without our elected officials egos getting involved.  Without their perceptions, rather than the facts, being the reason for their actions or inaction.  As officers of the Court we are to rise above the pettiness, but when big egos get bruised they tend to retaliate in ways that they find available.  Often that is at another’s expense.  Retaliation at my expense has been very far reaching.  Thinking that by bringing someone else down they will regain what they perceive they have lost, or at least puff them up again has no place in our Courts and needs to be rooted out by voters.  It is my hope that the voters of Skagit County heed the call.  

 

Gossip is one of the tools bruised egos use to get their revenge and gossip is rampant in the Skagit County Court, and likely with many other courts as well.  However, when the powers that be allow courthouse gossip to flourish then everyone should be very aware that what they are doing can harm good honest hard working people.  Lying to cover up your own mistakes is just wrong, but doing it and then talking about people knowingly to put them in their place is maliciously passive aggressive, to knowingly harm another just  isn’t decent.  You know who you are.  You know what you have said and done.

 

Notice is a necessity under the law.  It is not at anyone’s discretion.  Entering default orders to force criminal proceedings where you know there was no criminal act is not only disgraceful but unconscionable by the bench.  Giving Notice to the Pioneer Board but not to me was an abuse of the power of your position and it is morally reprehensible that you would use your position to harm me because your ego got bruised when you butted into a guardianship matter that had never come before you.  Together you and the Commissioner conspired, assuming wrongdoing.  You were proven wrong in your perception.  You were given an opportunity to be heard and instead you conspired together to get me and you did.  It wasn’t enough to ruin my reputation, no that wasn’t enough for some of you.   So I’m gone.  I’m in jail.  You’ve made me appear to be what you are protecting.  There will be others to come after me who will not break under your bullying.  Others who are stronger than I am but like me will not compromise their principles or integrity just to avoid the wrath of a two-faced back stabbing witch.  There are other’s who won’t play the status quo ball either.  They are coming.  The good people of Skagit County need to know that there are honest, hardworking lawyers zealously representing them and making decisions, but that there are unconscionable, cold hearted, public employee parasites like you who should not be re-elected ever again due to your unethical use of the law and your blatant disregard for notice before you strike.  You cannot pretend to uphold the integrity of the legal system if you are one of the main problems.  You know who you are and you know what you have done.  Where is that story?  

 

Signing arrest warrants without probable cause after being asked for nearly twenty years to recuse yourself from all matters regarding me is obviously bias. Then ordering search warrants after the plea just proves the police had nothing, there was no probable cause for any criminal complaint, just a regurgitation of WSBA’s partial investigation, (because all exculpatory information was withheld by the very same WSBA that refuses subpoenas while asking for me to waive my confidentiality instead; then when I do so they claim their own confidentiality in my file.  Tell me, does the WSBA have confidentiality when it is a self governing body?  I know that the bar’s Executive Director Paula Littlewood never once used the word “transparency” when answering one of UW’s first year law student’s question as to what exactly does self governing mean.  

Obviously, self governing means never having to be accountable for the WSBA’s own errors, investigations, misrepresentations and Statements of Concern.)    

 

But, getting back to the point raised above, You sir, the Judge who signed my arrest warrant, you are a liar and always have been since I first dealt with you on a 1994 Estate. You know who you are and it does not surprise me that while sitting on the bench you think everyone before you is a liar, because you were a liar before the bench.  It is unfortunate that the people of Skagit County who vote have not seen your real side as I have.  Let’s hope you never run unopposed again for re-election. 

 

But then, you lied about my brother too, didn’t you.  You recanted your statement but only after he had been disbarred.  

 

Then there is another ex-parte liar who used your same allocations against my brother almost word for word against me in that previously mentioned matter where the Commissioner’s clerk told me an order had been signed.  First this Sheriff’s daughter admitted that it was an honest mistake, in writing.  Yet then she takes my brother’s complaint almost word for word and has her client file a phony bar complaint against me believing no doubt that I would be disbarred too.   Did your client tell you that he was investigated by APS, I wonder?  You think that because I called you out in ex-parte for lying to the Court that you should harm me?  You were the liar.  Not me.  You and your client who I reported because I am a mandatory reporter of abuse to elders in jeopardy.  You who the court appoints as guardian yet you barely do your job, but always proactively collect your fee.  You aren’t fooling me.  There’s no doubt you can fool the WSBA , you have friends in high places.

 

I complained because a GAL wasn’t doing her job, but she was never investigated by the WSBA, I was.  Why, because she encouraged the complaint and I relied upon the WSBA to do their job investigating the matter.  Often I was told by the bar investigator that if  anything, ANYTHING BY ANYONE,  was found to be an action for disciplinary proceedings it would be thoroughly investigated and the party would be disciplined, yet this derelict wife of a WSBA crony was never investigated.  So how is the bar protecting the integrity of the judicial system?  I informed them and gave them the information which is in the Skagit Court files, but the WSBA never got the files.  Instead, the WSBA let one of the people I specifically told my investigator about be a bar custodian of papers and complaints.  Yes, someone specifically pointed out as conspiring to harm another lawyer by making false statements and by withholding information was put in charge of disciplinary files as custodian in the years my case was being heard.  Was that because the WSBA ignores some complaints that should be investigated while dismissing others who provide favors or is it because the WSBA also fails to adequately investigate and is therefore derelict in its duty to us all?  It certainly isn’t protecting the integrity of the system as it’s mission statement implies.

 

On another note, the attorney witness for the prosecution testifying to excessive fees certainly is the pot calling the kettle black when one of you knowingly testified my fees were excessive after you charged over sixty thousand dollars in less than six months on a referral I gave to your old firm.  When I called to discuss it with you I was told you were no longer with the firm but had opened your own firm which I called and was told you were on vacation in Italy.  Bearing false witness is a sin.  Being a graduate of a number of Catholic Schools* you know that too.  You know you are the true crook and you testified against me out of spite.  Shame, shame on you, here’s to Dante’s Inferno not being fiction.

 

Just because lengthy probates with exorbitant fees is the way Skagit County has always done it doesn’t mean it is the way it should be done.  I taught people they could do living trusts and avoid probate.  This empowered the people and took their private family matters out of a mandatory court setting.  That is what the Trust, once executed, says to do and is the law everywhere but apparently Skagit County.  

 

Here instead of following what is written in the four corners of the trust document being the law, we have one ridiculous Judge who instead of using mediation as it is intended, goes around the trust to hire every beneficiary a mediator who is also a lawyer which defeats the purpose of the trust, stole from multiple charitable beneficiaries and is a violation and an abuse of the system.

 

Judges who make these type of decisions instead of honoring the four corners of the document are taking away the avoidance of probate designed in the revocable living trust and leaving the parties in the probate court where they never intended to be.  People beware.  This is happening here in Skagit County and it is only making some lawyers more wealthy and stealing from your estates.  

 

I was the messenger, I tried to warn the powers that be and discovered that some of the powers that be like the way things have always been done.  The people they socialize with reap the benefits. Under TEDRA this Judge appoints a mediator to replace every lawyer and takes these trusts through probate.  That is wrong.  They know it is wrong and they are doing it anyway.

 

Know that if you have a revocable living trust that upon your death it becomes irrevocable and anyone who wants to go to court IS CONTESTING the basic nature and  autonomy of that trust.  Don’t fall for anyone telling you that they are just clarifying the document or language and talk you into taking your trust to Court under TEDRA; you are being deceived by your lawyer and by anyone sitting on the bench who signs such an order.

 

You know who you are.  I named you in my allocution.  Its only time before you will be seen for what you are and people will see what you have done.  You haven’t won, this is to be continued for the sake of all the residents of Skagit County and all the creators of trust documents.    

 

I know what you have done, and are doing.  It is time the people of Skagit County know who you are and what you are doing.  

 

Anyone else may think what they like, however, I would ask the people who have met me and dealt with me personally as well as those who worked with me and who used my services if what they have read in the newspapers, what was given to the newspapers by the WSBA and certain other sources about  what has transpired involving me with & in the courts; – Does this at all go with your idea of the person that YOU know me to be?  The person who once had a stellar reputation, the one who sat across from you, spoke with you, counseled you, went to school with or picked strawberries or dug bulbs or waited tables with?  

 

If it doesn’t then ask yourself,  WHY?.   There is a story here and it isn’t me.

 

Respectfully,

*Just to clarify to all you good Catholics in Skagit Valley.  The Arch Diocese of Seattle is running a Bank.  Your Catholic School Endowment was established to keep school funds out of the hands of the Arch Diocese in Seattle and here locally.  Over the past thirty years the Arch Diocese has done what it could to access the school’s endowment by controlling the funds.  This was never the intent of the Endowment.  The law suit filed against me by the lawyers of the Arch Diocese who made all kinds of nefarious & unethical allegations against me was heard in Federal Court and all of the allegations were by a preponderance of the evidence were found to be unfounded, but that did not stop any of you from believing the original lies and it cost the school payments on a convertible contract at a much higher interest rate than what the Arch Diocese was willing to give the school.  The Arch D has a conflict of interest with the school and forwarded their own agenda which cost the school dearly.  Whether you believe it or not.  The proof is in the baptismal font.  But for true guilty feelings over her false actions, frivolous lawsuit and likely the impending fear of all good Catholics, that of burning in hell; there would be no new baptismal font in Mount Vernon’s new church.  Omissions of truth are lies just the same and your money cannot wash away the origin you’re cowardice and lies have caused.   YOU know who you are and you know what you have done, and the rest of you don’t know the facts, but  certainly that hasn’t stopped anyone from talking and gossiping and drawing conclusions however inaccurate these may be.] 

 

Attorney Kamb’s account of Washington State Bar members’ fraud upon our elderly citizens is not an isolated innocent.  Many members of the Washington State Bar Boards are involved in this RICO scandal.   From the totality of the evidence we uncovered, feel confident to state that the Washington State Bar is allowing an elite few members, mainly associated with the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Council, to steal from our elderly. Next week, more names of attorneys stealing from our elderly residents.

Gold Bar Reporter will seek an injunction against Washington State Bar

Just as freedom fighter and Washington State attorney Steve Eugster did, Gold Bar Reporter will seek a U. S. Federal Court injunction against the Washington State Bar citing a nonnegotiable constitutional right to disassociate pursuant to the First Amendment.

Constitutuonal rights cannot be trumped by any organization.

“I value the First Amendment more than any other historical document on this planet, and I took a pledge to uphold the laws against all invaders foreign and domestic. Once I  became aware the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinry Counsel was guilty of RICO offenses against several of its members, I disassociated from the Washington State Bar, a First Amendment right in the U.S. ” Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block.

The Washington State Bar will be reformed and we have a hell of a lot of pissed off attorneys helping make that happen.

Www.reformedWSBA.org will be up and running by June 1, 2015, while at the same time I will be filing suit against the Washington State Bar seeking damages for their blatant disrespect for Our laws.
