Washington Court of Appeals Div. I Judge Beth Andrus fixing cases for her friends in Snohomish County Oso Mudslide litigation

On March 22, 2014, one of the largest landslide in United States history occurred 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Oso, Washington.

Public records sent from Court of Appeals Judge Beth Andrus email account judgeandrus@gmail.com documents that she was a good friend to Snohomish County’s Oso Defense attorneys Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh:

FW_ Save the Date !

Why this email is so important to illustrate case fixing is because Judge Beth Andrus was also the Judge at Washington Court of Appeals Division One who DENIED the Oso mudslide victims their day in court.  Judge Andrus fixed the case in favor of Snohomish County Prosecutors Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh, her friends and the County attorneys on this appeal.

Judge Beth Andrus, a dear friend to  Snohomish County Prosecutors Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh, signed in the bottom left hand corner of the Decision to Dismiss victims of the Oso mudslides against her dear friend from Snohomish County Prosecutors Office. Joseph Genster and Timothy Leyh were in fact the attorneys of record representing Snohomish County.

If this is not case fixing and gross violations of the Cannon Rules of Judicial Conduct, we are not sure what is.

Judge Beth Andrus should be brought up on racketeering charges and impeached with all deliberate speed.

For years  Snohomish County’s geologists urged the County’s Department of Emergency Management to purchase homes already built and move resident off the slide, correcting holding that the area was unstable and a major slide area.  FEMA offered funding to buy out home owners.

Instead of buying out property owners, Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon wrote an email letter to one of his political appointee’s John E Pennington asking “is it safe to build?” John E Pennington wrote back ” Its good to build boss.”

John E. Pennington was a two term Washington State Representative from Cowlitz County Washington.  He was also diagnosed by King County Superior Court Dr. Hedricks as “a sociopath with no empathy for human life” and he was diagnosed with autism.

If having the Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management labeled a sociopath with autism isn’t bad enough, keep reading.

According to lead Cowlitz County Detective Maurice Saxon, John E. Pennington was also the man responsible for the rape, kidnapping,  and attempted murder of a 5 year old girl in Cowltiz County in 1992.

At the time John E Pennington was the person responsible for raping,  kidnapping,  and attempted murder of a five year old girl, he was also running for an uncontested Washington State House of Representative’s seat.

At the time of the child rape, Gold Bar’s city attorney Michael Kenyon was the City of Kelso’s attorney.

When John E Pennington and Mike Kenyon covered up the rape of a child, Michael Kenyon’s career skyrocketed. Kenyon went from an anal salary of $37,500 per year as a city attorney to a million year, only after Senator Jennifer Dunn  jumped started Kenyon’s career at the bequest of John E. Pennington.

John E Pennington said ” I owe Jennifer Dunn my career…” What Pennington left off was that Mike Kenyon also owes Senator Jennifer Dunn his career.

When the Gold Bar Reporter requested access to public records here in Gold Bar, involving John E Pennington’s then mistress and Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005), attorney Mike Kenyon, John E Pennington’s fixer, was hired by Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe ” Felon” Beavers to tampering with public emails disseminated inside Gold Bar’s public emails.  Those emails contained illegally obtained information from the FBI about the Gold Bar Reporter’s family, including major HIPPA violations.

And so the 10 year public records litigation began… and what just learned is that the City of Gold Bar has been lying to Gold Bar residents about who is paying the legal bills posted on the City’s website. A story for a later dates, but for those of you who wondered, it’s Washington State attorney General Bob Ferguson Office. A story we are working on for a little later date. Stay tuned.

 

 

Two years after the Oso mudslides, John E Pennington was deposed, and his response to what he considered his responsibilities to be are nicely illustrated in his videotaped deposition when he states countless times ” I was just the Director, I just directed.” 


According to the Seattle Times, John E Pennington paid a flat rate fee for his online fraudulent diploma, from California Coastal University.  Pennington used his online flat rate diploma to obtain another online degree from American Military University, a online school US Senator Harkin said was fraud on PBS’s special “Education Inc.”

This begs one question: Had the County hired a person qualified to handle Emergencies could Oso Mudslides been mitigated? The Gold Bar Reporter believes so.

Since the Hazel Landslide has a history of instability dating to 1937, this prior to the March 2014 mudslide, the FEMA plans to buy out the homeowners in 2006 would have eliminated the human causalities.

“Completely unforeseen”

On March 24, two days after the slide, John Pennington, Director of Snohomish County’s Department of Emergency Management, stated at a news conference, “This was a completely unforeseen slide. This came out of nowhere.”[28] The same day The Seattle Times published an article about previous slides at the same location, as well as the likelihood of future slides. The article contained comments from geologists, engineers, and local residents, and stated that the area was known among locals as “Slide Hill”. On the next day, The Times followed up with a full page article, “‘Unforeseen’ risk of slide? Warnings go back decades.”Snohomish County Public Works Director Steve Thompsen was quoted as saying, “A slide of this magnitude is very difficult to predict. There was no indication, no indication at all.” ‘

John E. Pennington also told Time Magazine the same week ” Everyone knew of the dangers.”

The Gold Bar Reporter since early January 2009, tried to warn the public that John E. Pennington was dangerous man ( arrested for beating a 3rd trimester pregnant City of Duvall Council Member just weeks before delivering her child), and had criminally harassed the Gold Bar Reporter using an anonymous website Washington State Senator Steve Hobbs, and several Snohomish County Executive employees operated from Snohomish County offices, titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Countless criminal complaints were filed against John E Pennington from 2009 to 2017, but each time a criminal complaint was filed, then Sheriff John Lovick ( now WA State House of Rep for Mill Creek) would always intercept and quash the criminal complaints.

We would later learn that John Lovick was accused of sexual abusing a minor child in his care , caught masturbating along side her bed, inside his daughter’s room in the 1990s. John Lovick later paid off the victim to remain silent, and has since been lying to his constituents that the allegations are not true.

My mother always said ” the only ones who protect pedophiles, are pedophiles themselves.”  That’s exactly what John Lovick did, he protected John E Pennington from being criminally prosecuted on over 15 criminal complaints that were filed by several woman, and this after King County issued a restraining order against John E Pennington, they revoked his concealed weapons permit. While a King County restraining order was issued, John Lovick illegally granted Pennington back ( persons with domestic violence and mental health issues are NOT allowed to have weapons) a concealed weapons permit. Since Pennington did not live in Snohomish County – he actuall resides in Duvall, King County – Lovick had no authority to sign Pennington’s concealed weapons permit.

 

When Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon learned that John E Pennington tried to rape his public records officer inside Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management, Aaron  Reardon called her in to his office and promised her promotions and issued a very large settlement check of $45,000.00, which we later learned the victim used to enlarge her breasts.  She is now Director of Emergency Management for the City of Marysville.

In May 2013, Snohomish County’s Municipal Unit “voted” to order then Municipal Unit and Snohomish County Prosecutor Margaret King to assist John Pennington with  getting Anne Block disbarred for exposing corruption.

A source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, who we label “Fed Up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that ” Mark Roe and Mike Kenyon conspired with the county council to have you disbarred for reporting on their racketeering conduct. Margaret King was removed as Gold Bar’s City attorney, and moved to Snohomish County to assist the county with getting you disbarred.”

What our readers may not know is that from 2010 to February 2012, attorney Margaret King assisted in two Washington State Bar complaints.  What King and other complained about was that lawyers shouldn’t also be reporters.  The Gold Bar Reporter told the Washington State Bar Association ” stay out of my First Amendment activities.” The actions of the Enterprise cleared the way for the Reporter to dedicate more time to writing.

Forty-three people were killed and 49 homes and other structures destroyed. This was unacceptable from persons who were sworn in to uphold the laws, but as in the case of now terminated Director of Emergency Management John E Pennington, spent county monies and resources criminally harassing his opponents on a fake website The Sky Valley Chronicle. A website, Pennington, his convicted bank frauding wife Crystal D. Pennington (aka Berg, Hill), Snohomish County Prosecutors and Executive Officers used to defame and cyber-stalk anyone who dared challenge government sociopaths.

We blame the Washington State Bar Association for attempting to SLAPP down my First Amendment rights to protect a wife beater, a pedophile, and man who caused 43 deaths in Oso mudslides, because instead of working, he was performing FEMA contracts on the east in violation of Snohomish County Ordinance and criminally harassing his opponent right from County DEM offices.
