Washington State Supreme Court threatening reformists, violating the public trust

 “When honor and the Law no longer stand on the same side of the line, how do we choose[?]”  Anne Bishop

Anyone who been investigating massive racketeering and corruption in Washington State knows one thing, we have a serious problem that at one time in history ( 1960s through 1980s) our courts were honorable and would correct wrongs. Not so much any more. There is nothing honorable about our judiciary threatening lawyers who care about protecting the rights of Washingtonians. 

But that’s just what the Washington State Supreme Court just did. 

Last week, the Supreme Court issued an exparte ORDER threatening the Washington State Board of Governors (BOG) with contempt/disbarment if the BOG continued to demand that the  Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) Directors stay out of the legislative function of the WSBA BOG. After all, the WSBA is an “association” just like the AAA or American Medical Association.

Last year, the WSBA BOG was taken over by “reformists” who are demanding reform.  This immediately following the arrest of WSBA President Robyn Haynes for theft in Spokane County and after the Gold Bar Reporter’s report on WSBA Guardian scammer and WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell’s racketeering offenses against Washingtonians was exposed in the following article:

License to steal” with the assistance of the Washington State Bar and Washington State Guardian Board

 

Over the last twenty years, the Washington State Bar Association has broomed over twenty complaints against Washington State guardian scammer and Washington State Bar Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell.

Lin O’Dell met and teamed up with a convicted killer, Mark Plivilech, while working as a nurse with Walla Walla Prison inmates in 1990.

Not only was WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’ Dell found guilty of stealing from her clients using a convicted killer to harass them inside their homes, the duo also created several companies to launder clients’ trust monies.

Guardianship Letter accepting complaints billing 2

Instead of investigating complaints filed against attorney Lin O’Dell for embezzlement, the Washington State Bar Association, Washington Attorney General’s Office, Washington State Guardian Board, and at least two Washington State’s Governors’ turned a blind eye, thus allowing Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech’s rein of terror and racketeering crimes against Washington elderly residents to continued for over twenty years with no accountability.

Why is simple: the Washington State Bar Association refused to investigate complaints filed against Lin O’Dell. Washington State Bar Disciplinary Council Linda Eide, Doug Ende and Julie Shankland were all guardian scammers themselves while in private practice.

The Gold Bar Reporter smells a pay off system….

No accountability until Lin O’Dell decided to violate the Gold Bar Reporter’s civil rights, fabricate evidence, lie on official Washington State Bar filings, and after being caught accepting bribes from John E Pennington ( man fired from Snohomish County Emergency Management after he was caught stalking, criminally harassing Gold Bar Reporter right from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management offices).  Mark Plivilech who lives in Spokane set up a USPS Box # 70 in Duvall Washington for purposes of picking up money drops from the Penningtons’ to fix a case against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports on corruption.

What should for our readers is that attorney Lin O’Dell was handpicked as a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer by her co-conspirator and business associate attorney Joseph Nappi Jr ( another attorney associated with the Washington State Bar and Guardian Scam in Spokane County). Joseph Nappi Jr has his own “little RICO” scam of depleting O’Dell’s clients trust accounts after O’Dell’s clients die.

John E. Pennington, Lin O’Dell, Mark Plivilech, and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) are being sued for racketeering, and soon forgery and fraud.

Instead of prosecuting attorney Lin O’Dell for stealing, embezzling client funds, and money laundering, the Washington State Guardian Board allowed Lin O’Dell to resign, but only after she was caught stealing, perjury, and embezzling million of dollars from Ms. Fowler’s trust accounts.

President of Washington State Bar Association resigns hours before criminal warrant issued

“When honor and the Law no longer stand on the same side of the line, how do we choose[?]”  Anne Bishop


FireShot-Screen-Capture-015-Board-of-Governors-Biographies-webcache_googleusercontent_com_search_qcache_gUwwyQXP36AJ_www_wsba_org_About-WSBA

On June 23, 2017, Washington State Bar Association’s (WSBA) President Robin Lynn Haynes was notified of pending criminal charges for theft.

Some of you may not have known this since the  Seattle Times (Washington’s most circulated newspaper) assisted the WSBA by not reporting.


 

A few weeks ago, the Gold Bar Reporter received a tip from an insider at the WSBA, confirming that the Washington State Supreme Court has been engaging in exparte communication with the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel (WSBA ODC) Directors Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende.  With the WSBA reformists now in control of the WSBA BOG, demands were made ordering WSBA Director Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende to stop interfering with BOG’s legislative functions. Instead WSBA Director Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende went to Olympia, behind closed doors, and had an exparte meeting with the entire Washington State Supreme Court.  

Behind closed doors, and in violation of Washington State’s Open Meeting laws, the entire Washington State Supreme Court and WSBA Directors Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende met secretly and wrote an ORDER threatening the WSBA BOG with contempt charges if the WSBA BOG continues to demand reform. 

The WSBA BOG’s demanded that the WSBA ODC stop interfering with the WSBA BOG’s functions. WSBA BOG Reformists are seeking WSBA Executive Directors Littlewood and Doug Ende’s immediate termination, and bylaw amendments passed that give power back to the Board of Governors and the Sections.  The insider  said  reforms must include” the right of referendum preserved, and available for license fee issues.  So,  that is clearly reform.  I think they can be persuaded to take discipline out of political control from the Executive Director.” Paula Littlewood is the Executive Director for the WSBA. 


My readers may recall that the WSBA Practice of Law Board resigned in late 2015, citing gross violations by the Washington State Supreme Court conspiring with WSBA Directors of Sherman Anti Trust violations, creating a monopoly over delivery of legal services in Washington State.  

 

Board members blast Washington State Bar, resignations spread like wild flowers

Placing profits over people”

Washington state’s Practice of Law Board (POLB) is virtually defunct because of massive resignations and in fighting feuds with the bar association’s leaders.

No, it cannot be the Washington State Bar’s corrupt elite few Board members trying to control the honest fight for justice Boards and its members?  Shocking!


Attorney Scott Smith writes a letter basically agreeing with the Gold Bar Reporters federal Racketeering complaint; Washington State Bar Board members are threatening members who disagree, all in an effort to dominate the Washington State Bar 

879px-San_Carlos_wildflowers,_2010

On November 8, 2015, former POLB board members released an 11-page letter (PDF) accusing the executive director of the state bar of pursuing “a campaign to eliminate the Practice of Law Board (POLB) citing disgust over how to bridge the access-to-justice gap in the state.

The 11 page letter to the Supreme Court has validity because we found records from the City of Gold Bar proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005) was writing motions, briefs, and pleadings for two former Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency Management employees, we reported Ms. Hill Pennington to the Bar, but lead counsel Linda Eide (caught destroying evidence in several proceedings) and Doug Ende allowed Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud) to continue harming the public with her criminal conduct ( practice of law without a license).

If our story on the King County ( which we believe extends to every county in this state is not enough to start removing judges and lawyers from office, I’m not sure what is) animal abuse scam, a racketeering enterprise designed to fleece the taxpayers of Washington State for a small few to line their pockets with the gold of others, isn’t enough to push reforms inside the Washington State Bar, I believe its time to start a new Reformed Washington State Bar.

Something hundreds of us reformist already started ( Rwsba.org coming soon).


The letter signed by several members of the POLB, including ex-chairman Scott Smith stated there has been countless clashes between the POLB, and the Bar’s Director over the POLB’s role in regulating the unauthorized practice of law.

“The treatment of the practice of law board over the last three years is a textbook study on how to discourage and disempower a board comprised of volunteers: oppose their mission; cut their budget; withhold meaningful staff support; personally attack and seek to oust the volunteers who disagree with you; conduct secret meetings to discuss the future of the group without informing its volunteer members or inviting them to participate; dismiss or reject out of hand the volunteers’ concerns; and replace the group’s members and leadership team,” the resigning board members wrote. “There is no surer way to demoralize a group of volunteers and undermine their good intentions.”

The POLB was set up as an independent entity under the Washington State Supreme Court, but partly funded by the state bar.  Although it as structured so that POLB would not be unduly influenced by the rest of the bar association,  the POLB letters of resignation stated the Bar’s Director has undermined and even threatened the POLB with elimination on multiple occasions.

Threats that we believe amount to Racketeering, extortion, bribery, and threats against persons property interest.  In December 2014, the United States Supreme Court held in FTC v North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners that if the supervising branch ( in this case the Supreme Court) is not actively supervising its Board members, then they are subject to lawsuits, with no immunity, under Sherman Anti-Trust.  see http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/north-carolina-board-of-dental-examiners-v-federal-trade-commission/

Several Racketeering and Anti-Trust law suits have been filed against the Washington State Bar in U.S. Federal Court, only after public records confirm that the Washington State Bar’s Directors, counsel, and Board members are guilty of extortion, threats, and bribery.

The POLB’s resignation letter supports that the Bar is being dominated by Board members who are threatening members who have a difference of opinions. As attorney Smith claims ” to dominate  and control the Boards.”


“The Washington State Bar Association has a long record of opposing efforts that threaten to undermine its monopoly on the delivery of legal services,” the resigning board members wrote. The 13-person POLB is now down to four as a result of resignations.

The Washington State Bar Association said that the letter contained “significant misinterpretations and misunderstandings.” The letter also maintained that the POLB, when reinstated, was instructed to focus on consumer protection and explore new ways for non-lawyers to provide legal and law-related services and to cease its enforcement activities.

“Access to justice and the protection of the public are unwavering commitments shared by the Washington Supreme Court and the Washington State Bar Association,” Robin Haynes, president-elect of the Washington State Bar Association.  Ms. Haynes was just elected in June 2015.

POLB disgusted members also noted that the WSBA Board of Governors voted unanimously to eliminate the POLB in May 2012, a month before the Washington Supreme Court formally adopted the LLLT rule. The supreme court voted to reinstate the POLB in June.

POLB chairman Smith says “The composition of board is critical,” Smith said. “If you can control who is on the board, then you can control the outcome. [Chief Justice Madsen] rejected our opinions on who should serve on the board, and the court was putting off having a conversation with us about our concerns. As a volunteer board, it’s pretty hard to get a whole lot done if we don’t have support.”

“If the board is no longer independent and becomes a rubber stamp for the state bar, then it’ll prevent any meaningful reforms to solving the access-to-justice gap,” Smith said.


truth_is_the_new_hate_speech

Bravo to attorney Scott Smith for having the courage to stand up for Justice.  Your letter  of resignation will prove very helpful in my Racketeering, ADA, and Sherman Anti-Trust suit against the thugs inside the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

In early 2018, the Gold Bar Reporter exposed Snohomish County Public Defender Association documenting that Snohomish County Public Defender and the County Prosecutors are fixing criminal cases.

Snohomish County Washington, fixing cases to ensure convictions

"Fighting corruption is not just good governance. Its self-defense. It's patriotism." Joe Biden


Hitler Sign

Nazi Germany, “alive and well inside Washington State” 

Nazi law and order was predicated on the idea that all individuals shall be subordinate to the state. Adolf Hitler enacted strict laws prohibiting political opposition, and free speech. It was Hitler who decided what societal norms were, and it was he who outlawed any behavior he deemed as ‘anti-social behaviors’’, including alcoholism, drug addiction, begging, promiscuity, political dissent, prostitution and homosexuality.


Snohomish County Defenders Association, throwing cases gaining political favor

The Snohomish County Public Defenders Association clams to be a non-profit 501(3)(c).   It’s director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law office of Anderson Hunter in Everett.  Ms. Norris is married to a Washington State Court of Appeals Division I Judge Robert Leach.  With no surprise, Robert Leach was also a partner at Anderson Hunter law firm in Everett.

Anderson Hunter law firm has one of the largest civil defense contracts with Snohomish County, its managing partner is G. Geoffrey Gibbs, a Pro Tem Snohomish County Commissioner, and a person who manages the financials ( 18 million annually) for the Washington State Bar Association.

So this means, Vicki Norris, is not only the Director of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association, she is also a civil defense contractor to provide a legal defense when Snohomish County gets sued for malicious prosecution.

Imagine this.  You’re charged with a crime inside Snohomish County Washington. You’re poor and cannot afford a lawyer. Snohomish County refers you to a taxpayer funded public defender, whose director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law firm of Anderson Hunter Snohomish County’s largest contractor providing civil defense.

So not only does the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association rely on government money for its existence, it’s Director, a managing partner, is also receiving money from the County to defend against lawsuits filed against the County for civil rights violations.

If that’s not bad enough, you also learn that Vicki Norris’s husband is a Court of Appeals Division One Judge, whose friends inside Court of Appeals Division One will influence your appeal, whether criminal or civil.

a dishonest scheme; a fraud, throwing cases for political and financial favors are just a few words that come to mind, when I think of Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.


First Step to Throwing a Case, Deal or No Deal

When I think of our criminal justice system, I think of a game show, Deal or No Deal. It’s a television game show that revolves around the opening of a set of numbered briefcases, each of which contains a different prize (cash or otherwise). The contents (i.e. $$ amount) of all of the cases are known at the start of the game, but the specific location of any prize is unknown. The contestant claims (or is assigned) a case to begin the game. The case’s value is not revealed until the conclusion of the game.  Technically, the game is stacked against the player ( the accused).

mtgrsfordummiesa2016

The analogy here is simple; when the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association and its managing directors’ hold the largest contracts with Snohomish County justice is perverted, and cases are thrown as political favors, and financial rewards ( contracts), resulting in justice being perverted in favor of the almighty dollar.

One such case thrower is attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz.


 

Former Washington Post Watergate reporter Bob Woodward was right, ” follow the money.”


 

In the middle of 2016, I began investigating a simple criminal misdemeanor case involving a seventy-year old petite nurse, who is alleged to have assaulted a neighbor.  The neighbor stands almost six feet tall, weighs well over two-hundred fifty pounds, and just happens to be the tenant of Anderson Hunter’s managing partner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who if you remember is also a Snohomish County Commissioner.

In Judge Downes’s warped sense of justice, exercising your legal right to challenge corruption is worthy of a $70,000 SLAPP fine, especially when doing so involves suing his good friend and County commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

In 2011, G. Geoffrey Gibbs was being sued by the seventy year old nurse for infringing on her property.  At the same time, Gibbs’s tenant who lives next door to the nurse alleges that she was assaulted by the nurse.

First point of order, the alleged victim goes to court for restraining order. DENIED. So when the restraining order didn’t work, G. Geoffrey Gibbs sends an email to Everett city attorney and his personal golf buddy Michael Fisher and says ” charge her anyways so she will have to expend a large retainer…”

Imagine, your claiming you’re a victim of crime, you go to court seeking a restraining order, the judge denies your request, basically stating there’s nothing here. Then, your landlord, who just happens to be a county commissioner write to the Prosecutor, who happens to be his golf buddy, and you’re then charged with assault. It’s now six years later, and her case is still pending.

What caught my attention about this case was a just two years out of law school Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz was acting as a ” Pro Tem Judge.”

As an investigative journalist with a Juris Doctorate degree here in Washington State, I remember saying ‘what makes a recent law school graduate qualified to serve as a judge?”

US House of Representative House Speaker Tip O’Neil once said ” all politics is local.”  This famous quote leads me to believe what US House Speaker Tip O’Neil meant was all things in our lives are affected by local politics.  But instead of paying attention to local politics, which is the hot bed for corruption, our duopoly, Democrats v Republicans, or our so called democracy  have Americans fighting over abortion, welfare, and guns.

Reporter Bob Woodward came up with an easy solution to uncovering corruption, “Follow the money.”  Under Woodward’s general principles  of ” follow the money”, corruption equates to money, political influence in exchange for political favors, this here in Snohomish County equates to fixing cases to gain a financial benefit.

After watching Everett Municipal Court maliciously prosecute a 70 year old nurse with no prior criminal history, I began investigating Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz for corruption.

Sadly, I write in remembrance of my Constitutional law and ethics Professor who said ” Our criminal justice is failing. Anne, I know you’re going to instigate change where change is needed ( boy was that an understatement). This generation cares nothing about the rights of the accused…” At the time, I had just completed a Juris Doctorate degree and had no idea what he meant, but thanks to attorney Jason Schwarz, I do now.


 

Jason

Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz “the biggest lawyer looser” 

 

For Snohomish County Defendant Jerry Bogart, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Office failed to disclose to Jerry Bogart that Snohomish County Sheriff’s investigator David Fontenot is a known Brady Cop guilty of excess of force and terminated as a result.

But this story didn’t end here.  In 2016, at the bequest of another blogger who couldn’t attend another trial, Brady Cop David Fontenot was the investigator on another case involving a mother of five, a small business owner, with no prior criminal history, named Lori Shavlik.

Soon after hearing of Ms. Shavlik, I started sifting through her files, learning quickly that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office not only failed ( really hid) to disclose information it had in its possession as it relates to Brady Cop David Fontenot,  he was also a witness against her and allowed to assist the Snohomish County Prosecutor during trial.  This in front the jury; in criminal cases all witnesses are supposed to be sequestered.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik a jury acquitted her of all charges, seeing through the countless fabricated evidence and false testimony presented by Brady Cop David Fontenot in her case.

Snohomish County Prosecutors’ ignore the constitutional rights of defendants, spit on Brady v Maryland like its a piece of toilet paper, and have rigged Snohomish County’s criminal justice system against defendants by contracting with one law firm, claiming falsely that Snohomish County Public Defenders’ Association is not a public agency and its managing partners from Anderson Hunter, for the delivery of legal services.

This conduct reeks of Sherman Anti-Trust issues, another topic for another day. However, public defender and Washington State attorney Jason Schwarz is team player inside what I consider to be gross Sherman Anti-trust violations and a racketeering scheme, fixing cases to ensure convictions.


“When honor and the Law no longer stand on the same side of the line, how do we choose[?]”  Anne Bishop

In 2016, the Honorable Justice Alex Kozinski held in the Joshua Frost case, said King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office violated a rule requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand.”

Justice Kozinski said the prosecution’s tactic were deliberate, and not an oversight. The County Prosecutor’s public records officer Kelli Williams kept Shaw’s signed plea agreements secret until two days after Frost was convicted and the office stonewalled in providing Frost this information when he doggedly requested it.

But the truth is, King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure conviction is governed by Association of Washington Cities (AWC).   AWC insures almost all public defenders, counties, cities, and its employees here in Washington State.

A few weeks ago attorney Jeffrey S. Myers, said ” We cannot settle this suit because Anne Block requested records and would benefit financially.  We will not let her win.”  Jeff  S. Myers, an attorney with Lyman, Daniel, Kamerrer, and Bogdanovich, is a contractor for AWC, located in Tumwater Washington.

Snohomish County and its contractors such as Snohomish County Public Defenders Association are all members of AWC.

So imagine, not only are you using a public defender whose managing director is a managing partner in Snohomish County’s largest civil defender law firm of Anderson Hunter, and Snohomish County government are insured through AWC.


Throwing cases, AWC style 

080372p06055w

The hand shaking brings me back to attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz throwing the Jerry Bogart case in exchange for political influence, and government contracts.  A few months ago, an objective observer witnessed Jason Schwarz bragging to another person how after the Bogart case he was setting up his own private practice.  One source claims that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office as a reward plans to divert public defense monies his way, because Schwarz helped the Prosecution throw cases. Bogart was no different.

On November 22, 2017, I witnessed attorney Jason Schwarz put his client Jerry Bogart on the stand, having him testify against himself.  From any objective observer, it was clear that Jerry Bogart’s IQ is less than 75, thus in my opinion he was not able to fully comprehend the charges against him. Hence why Bogart was assigned counsel.

Looking through parts of the Bogart files, it’s clear that the Prosecutor did not have a case, unless Bogart admitted guilt.  As a result, Jason Schwarz needed to convince Bogart into testifying. However, Jason Schwartz and the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office had one problem, Washlite Board member and local activist Lori Shavlik had been visiting inmates in the County jail trying to get the word out about the county’s undisclosed Brady Cop David Fontenot.

As an activist interested only in justice, Ms. Shavlik was handing over Brady Cop Fontenot’s criminal history files over to defense attorneys and inmate, while I was emailing judges informing them of Brady Cop Fontenot, placing Fontenot’s files into the public record forever. This resulted in Jason Schwarz and Snohomish County restricting inmates from having Lori Shavlik on its visitors list.

Obviously when defendants have information that leans in their favor, and withheld in violation of Our Supreme Court’s holding in Brady v Maryland, they tend to say wait a minute, not so fast. Jerry Bogart was no match for attorney Jason Schwarz, and since Lori Shavlik had been restricted from visiting inmates, Jerry Bogart was left to rely on attorney Jason Schwarz.

According to Jerry Bogart’s family, attorney Jason Schwarz relentlessly convinced him to testify against himself.  Why, because the Prosecutor’s Office had nothing, and Schwartz needs legal contracts to set up his private practice.

As one can imagine, Jerry Bogart, a man with a very low IQ, at the relentless urging of his defense attorney Jason Schwarz testified against himself.  On November 22, 2017, Ms. Shavlik and I popped into Judge Janice Ellis’s courtroom and witnessed, in part, Bogart’s testimony. if Jason Schwartz conduct wasn’t bad enough, I sat, in tears, watching Judge Janice Ellis standing up just aside the jury box, as Bogart testified, nodding her head up and down, in agreement, when the Prosecutor questioned Jerry Bogart.

 

What Lori Shavlik and I witnessed Judge Janice Ellis do was commit egregious judicial misconduct, ensuring conviction of man, with a low IQ, one has to wonder if he even understood or could fully grasped the charges that were lodged against him.

After public defender Jason Schwartz had Jerry Bogart testify against himself, the jury only spent two hours to issue a conviction on all counts. After the jury was released,  Lori Shavlik and I spoke to several jurors who told us ” Bogart testified against himself and gave the Prosecutor what they needed to convict”  another said ” Not sure why Bogart testified  because up until then the Prosecutor had nothing” and another said ” I don’t care.”

Judge Janice Ellis’s judicial misconduct will be forever imprinted in my head, and leaves me struggling to sleep at night.

Both Jason Schwartz and Judge Janice Ellis were contacted for comment. As of today both have refused comment.

 

I agree with the Honorable 9th Justice Alex Kozinski, we have a major problem inside our so called criminal justice system.


Polk County Florida school teacher Wendy Bradshaw Phd. said in pertinent part “I will not subject my child to this disordered system, and I can no longer, in good conscience, be a part of it myself. Please accept my resignation from Polk County Public Schools.”

Until the federal courts start enforcing 1983, RICO, and Sherman Anti – Trust violations, as illustrated herein, I shall not be part of this disordered system either.

  1. Once again, you focused the light on these cockroaches — the WSBA and our very own Supreme Court — to show them for the corrupt slim that they are. Excellent reporting as usual.
