We have read your letter to the California AG and agree with it completely regarding Sherman anti-trust and immunities granted to private organizations via state action immunity.

You may be interested in following and possibly contributing with friend of the court briefs, the following cases currently pending before the ninth circuit court of appeals.

Scannell v. WSBA case #14-35582

Scheidler v. Avery et al case # 15-35945

Block v. Snohomish county case #15-35569

In all three cases, the plaintiffs have raised Sherman anti-trust and RICO charges against the Washington State Bar Association and the issue of immunity plays a crucial role.

Scannell was disbarred for obstruction because he refused to turn over attorney client privileged information to a disciplinary counsel who was attempting to prosecute his client for the unauthorized practice of law in Virginia. Although a federal judge ruled that the bar’s action of recommending disbarment violated the 6th amendment right to counsel, the disbarment could not be undone, and the bar could not be sued because of quasijudicial immunity. While the ninth circuit has not recognized the discipline with a reciprocal disbarment (believed to be only the only attorney who was able to keep his 9th Circuit attorney license).

In Scheidler, the plaintiff was prevented from obtaining counsel for his suit because the prosecutor has used his influence with the WSBA to threaten disciplinary action against any attorney who represents Scheidler. In one case, he lost a case because he counsel was threatened on the eve of trial.

In Block, the plaintiff was an award winning journalist who exposed corruption in Snohomish county when she printed a story about the Chief executive using county funds to conduct a sexual affair with two employees in Europe. The county executive was forced to resign over the revelations, but used county resources and employees to retaliate against Block by soliciting bar complaints over the internet. Block was recommended for disbarment for writing a series of exposes about the director of the Department of Emergency Services. That director, recommended approval of the building of homes on the Oso mudslide site, which later resulted in the deaths of 43 residents. The Seattle Times later won the Pulitzer prize for exposing how the director and others knew in advance that the site was dangerous.

In all three cases, the plaintiffs have alleged that the bar has steered the market away from sole practitioners, minorities, and political enemies of the leadership. They allege that over 40% of all discipline occurs in Snohomish county, which is where influential members of the Board of Governors and Disciplinary board reside and use the bar process to target their opponents.

They allege that the board targets minority attorneys for discipline in numbers far exceeding their proportions of the membership in the bar.

They also alleged that virtually all discipline is directed at sole practitioners, even though sole practitioners are only 30% of attorneys.

Their complaints also allege that defense attorneys are not investigated under policies that are not approved reviewed or approved by Washington State Supreme Court.

Finally, their complaints allege that this steering of the market toward favored attorneys is done during the investigative stage, which is never reviewed by the Washington State Supreme Court in the 96% of the cases that are never charged. Their complaints allege that the low number of attorneys charged is reflective of the fact that the bar is the proverbial fox in charge of the henhouse.

In spite of these serious allegations, all which are presumed to be true under an FRCP 12 motion, their cases have been dismissed. In Scannell’s case, although a California judge ruled that Washington court rules violated the sixth amendment right to counsel, and Scannell’s RICO, Sherman Antitrust allegations, and Civil Rights charges were not covered under the Rooker Feldman doctrine, (the usual defense for cases like this), he ruled that quasi-judicial immunity prevented prosecution for damages under all three causes of action, while ruling that injunctive relief was available for civil rights causes of action. The North Carolina Dental Examiners case had not yet been decided at the time the final orders were issues, but had been issued before briefing in the ninth circuit.

In Block and Scheidler, their cases were dismissed by federal judges who Block and Scheidler contend violated the code of judicial conduct when they refused to recuse themselves when they were members of the Washington State Bar Association. The ninth circuit had earlier ruled in Scannell case and two others, that the membership required disqualification of Washington judges. Under common law, individual members of an association are liable for the debts of the association.

In the Block case, the judge refused to allow Block to amend her complaint to include the bar, even though such amendments are freely granted. In Scheidler, the judge granted quasijudicial immunity, without offering any reasoning as to why the North Carolina case did not apply.


Washington State Bar Racketeering caught on camera


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark  secrets unearthed; Washington State Bar Association to protect pedophiles and wife beaters like John E. Pennington


UPDATE: Public records reveal that Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe confirmed that John E. Pennington is man responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

Pedophile

John E. Pennington, only suspect in rape of 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, Washington; also kicked out of a San Diego church for molesting two boys during a church camping trip

redmond-pd1_Page_1


pennington-redmond_Page_1


 

We’ve been investigating John Pennington’s past thirty years on this planet for over seven years.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2We never thought we’d get to this point, finally uncovering why John E. Pennington has been so desperately trying to hide hs past. Well it’s simple, he’s a pedophile ( who enjoys taking naked showers with little girls, molested two boys ) and a wife beater, and once the feds learned the truth he was terminated from FEMA.


John Pennington is a sociopath; and how he met an attorney named Michael Kenyon who helped Johnny cover up his rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County.

Well documented in our past stories https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as ” prior conviction”

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place ” people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton ” it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting in June 2016.  Stay tuned, it will be our pleasure to bring it “live” to our followers.

John Pennington’s involvement with Echo Lake animal abuse sex scandal will be discussed in the very near future.  Let’s just say,  ” Penny is a sick bastard!”

Open government, and the principles of Our founding fathers, means more to me than life

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

” I have but one life to live and shall be for the betterment of my society as a whole.”  Anne Block, Gold Bar Reporter, journalist and author.

In 2014, when Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers offered me money to go away, I said ” not until you comply with the Public Records Act.”  So here we are six years later; after attorneys Michael Kenyon, Margaret King, Ann Marie Soto and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers misused over $1,000,000.00 of taxpayer monies covering up crimes committed by two government thugs, John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill.

The sun is starting to shine again inside the little community of Gold Bar.  Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill are about to be exposed in one of the largest RICO scandals in Washington State history, and involves a fake online news paper set up to criminally harass anyone who questions local government here in Snohomish County.

But all is not lost!  Today the United State Supreme Court just held that the Board of Dental Examiners is liable for the actions of its directors if they failed to actively  supervise their employees.  Sound familiar?  Well it should, because this issue correlates with the WA State Supreme Court’s inactions in monitoring several political attacks that WA Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorneys Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Joseph Nappi Jr., Craig Bray, and Scott Busby are doing to any Bar member who speaks out or tries to tackle corrupt activities of agency employees or judges. Simply put, we have enough evidence to say they are guilty of RICO.

For those of you interested in following what’s going to happen to the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel, you should read http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/north-carolina-board-of-dental-examiners-v-federal-trade-commission/

Lets just say reform for the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council is coming from the 9th Circuit!  We say ” Let the sunshine in and let it shine until the cockroaches are removed from their positions!”

The sooner citizens say ” we’ve had enough, the sooner the corrupt bastards ruining our home land will be gone from public office.

Snohomish County Washington Open Government Supporters Seek Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Recall

Residents of Snohomish County are pleased to announce that a Recall for Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe will be filed within the week.   Reason, misappropriation of public funds. 

Before reading, please see the RICO complaint filed in U.S. Federal District Court last week.

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

I’m looking into how much discretionary spending Mark Roe has without first getting council approval but I’m pretty sure that Roe’s 100 K  ( 50K to Aaron Readon and Jon Rudicil, and 50K to convicted evidence destroyer Kevin Hulten) exceeds his discretionary spending.  

 

For those on this email chain confused imagine this.  One day while trying to get money out of an ATM machine a masked man comes up behind you and just as your retrieving money from the ATM the masked man pistol whips you in the back of the head and takes your ATM cash.  As you regain consciousness, he’s gone.  

 

Then the following week, the same man does exactly the same thing again.  This time you kind of get a glimpse of him, because he’s wearing a mask you still cannot see him. So again he gets away with your cash.

 

Then one month later, the same man does it again, but this time two news reporters from the Snohomish County Daily Herald happen to see the masked man assaulting you, so chase after  him for a few blocks and notice that he’s a Snohomish County executive officer. 

 

The two Herald reporters report about it on the front page, kind of something like Scott and Noah did on the Feb 13, 2013 Herald titled “ Reardon’s Office Linked to Harassment.” 

See http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999

 

But the real slap in the citizen’s face comes when the citizen then finds out that the County Prosecutor, let’s call him Mark Roe, decides “ this guy knows too much, so much that he can bring me down for gross PDC violations with McBee Strategies in D.C, so well what the hell I have hundreds of thousands of dollars of Snohomish County taxpayer dollars that I can use to cover this up, so he writes a $50K check to the man that assaulted the ATM taxpayer. 

 

Then pissed off that the County employee will never face justice, you exercise your constitutional right under the 7th Amendment to file a civil suit against the County for the criminal assault and pain and suffering you experienced.  Then instead of investigating the tort claim, the Prosecutor’s Office, including Margaret King ( no surprise who worked for the City of Gold Bar) Sean Reay ( who seems to be Roe’s right hand political bitch inside and outside the office) and Prosecutor Mark Roe decide the best way to handle the lawsuit is to go file WA Bar complaints against the person assaulted at the ATM machine because they find out s/he has a WA Bar license and has been pretty vocal about the corruption inside the Prosecutor’s Office.  None of the WA Bar complaints has anything to do with conduct as an attorney.

 

And why of course Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine just happens to sit on the WA Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel Board and its lead counsel Linda Eide happens to be a personal friend of an Executive Officer John Pennington, who Block the taxpayer victim has been reporting about for years for his crimes against the taxpayers of her community.  

 That’s exactly what Mark Roe is doing in Block v. Snohomish County at el.  The ATM taxpayer then files a criminal RICO complaint in U.S. District Court alleging a conspiracy to deprive her of civil rights.  But the story does end here.

 

Mark Roe then decides that the City of Gold Bar’s former Mayors were all part of the conspiracy to harm the ATM taxpayer, so he ( Roe) drafts up another illegal contract to provide a personal legal defense to Gold Bar and its former Mayors with county taxpayer monies. 

 

But opps, there’s a legal problem for Mark Roe, it’s called Wash. State Constitution prohibition against using taxpayer monies for personal use. For Roe, this is just a technically; who cares about the Constitution.  Opps, we do and we just happen to have the financial resources and knowledge to press the issues for the next 30 years.  

For us, ” The Constitution means more to us than life itself, and its worth fighting to protect from all invaders, foreign and domestic, problem is, opps, the invaders are Snohomish County public officials. A fact that we could care less about.”  

 

Folks there’s a word for Mark Roe, it’s called corruption, cover my own ass because convicted criminal Kevin Hulten knows that I ordered the WA Bar complaints to be filed against the citizen who scrutinized my office; I ordered the assault, and I covered up for Pennington’s domestic spying crimes for years.  Why, because everyone in my office has using the Sheriff’s Office to run illegal background checks for years, just another day at the office.  Who cares about the U.S. Constitutional provisions against unreasonable search and seizure or Wash. State’s privacy laws or the Public Records Act ( PRA) .  Screw the laws of Washington State, this is Snohomish County.


As for changing the Public Records Act, Mark Roe was part of advocating for change ( but honest Sen. Dean Taako told Sister Sara that there will be No Get Out of Jail Free Card for what they did to me) and still is, ( kind of hard to cover up your crimes as a public official with open records laws) but this time instead of having a sick demented old man from Gold Bar to march down to the legislature attempting to change the public records  laws, Mark Roe sent Sister Sara Di Vittorio.  But ole Sister Sara slipped up at the Sunshine Committee Meeting saying “ We’re out of money to protect county employees.”   Since when was a public records officers job to protect county workers?  Welcome to Snohomish County!      

 

Hence why I filed a RICO complaint.  Roe’s most recent actions of misappropriating our money to provide a legal defense to Gold Bar and its criminal public officials only solidifies my posts that Sno County is not only involved in hiding of our records, its  supports what my investigators uncovered that the County illegally gained access into files that they had no legal right to,  then as one former Gold bar council member blew the whistle about John Pennington disseminated via email my non-conviction criminal history records ( which consisted of a lot of political protests detainments) and how our stellar county employee John Pennington illegally used his Homeland Security clearance to gain access into a relative’s mental health records ( and because she and I look so much alike) John Pennington emailed Gold Bar public officials her mental health records claiming that I changed my name and my sister was really me. 

But John Pennington’s mental health records were illegally sealed by Judge Eric Lucas in Pennington v. Pennington.

As for me, I have never been treated for or ever suffered from mental health issues of any kind. However, I believe that people who do have an absolute right to privacy that should not be evaded simply because a relative who lives 3,000 miles away exercises her legal right to access John Pennington’s email communication in 2009.

 

 

And just how a sister and brother of mine in Mass got involved, I’ll leave that for another post because both are planning to file their own criminal complaint asking for the Mass Attorney General  ( who has police power in Mass unlike WA) to bring John Pennington, Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill back to Mass for prosecution, noting that Mass Statute of Limitations toll when its out of state residents. So sad for the RICO gang; Mass has the strictest laws on disseminating mental records ( not even doctors are permitted to disseminate mental health records).

 

So there you go, the story of why Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers stole over 1M dollars of water and street money to hide public records and why Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe is protecting John Pennington. Criminal RICO in its finest. 

 

And they think I’m a thorn in their sides, they haven’t dealt with my sister and her husband yet.  But they will be soon.

But that’s not it,  John Pennington is also a prime suspect in the rape of a 5yr child in Cowlitz County, and every where he travels ( according to his travel records) children are missing.  Another story us real reporters are working on.   

See https://snohomishcountycorruption.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/so-why-does-ms-block-keep-accusing-john-pennington-of-being-a-pedophile/

 

These facts support my position that Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Recall is not only coming, but its vital to a healthy democracy. 

John Pennington will be brought to justice for his crimes regardless of whether it takes me 30 days or 30 years.  Pennington and those who assisted him in committing crimes are the real threat to a free society and must be brought to justice regardless of the time or money.  Just think of how different Our World would be today if someone exposed Adolf Hitler long before World War II.

Atifete Jahjaga said:

Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.

 

 

 

 

 

Snohomish County public records confirms John Pennington spent most of county time using hacking software

Pedophile

While 44 while residents in the small community of Oso, Washington, suffocated to death, the bonehead in charge spent most of his day “hacking” on the taxpayers dime, public records from Snohomish County confirm.

Also see another reports investigation of just how and why the City of Gold Bar is going bankrupt over hiding John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Berg Pennington’s crimes http://snocoreporter.com/follow-up-on-our-duvall-pennington-investigation/

Three months ago, the Gold Bar Reporters sent Snohomish County Department of Information Services ( also known to use as Dept of Disinformation Services) a public records request for ” copies of John Pennington H_Key logins for any computer or electronic device he used. Last week, Snohomish County complied with our request giving us 27,000 of Pennington’s H_key log in codes. The County sent the first installment with many more to come as it relates to  ” Our Little Michael Pedophile Brownie.”

From John Pennington’s computer H_key log in codes here’s what we know so far:

1).  Pennington spent at least 6 hours a day working on his private contracts for his private company.

2.)  Pennington spent at least 2 hours per day working as an adjunct teacher for an online school titled American Military University, a for profit school that Senator Tom Harkin called ” fraud”  on PBS special titled ” Education Inc”

3.)  Pennington spent a large number of hours “hacking” into others computer systems.

4.)  Pennington spent several days posting on his blog spot titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle”

5.) Pennignton used a portable hard drive to evade the Public Records Act( so he thought but our readers should not worry because we’re going to file another suit and depose him about this in 60 days).

We wrote Snohomish County Council members an letter stating ” Is this why taxpayers of Snohomish County are paying John Pennington a $150,000.00 a year welfare check ?”

Then last week, someone from Duvall, Washington, “hacked” into the Gold Bar Reporters Twitter account.  Once we became aware of the illegal trespass and theft, our Twitter account was temporarily suspended, and we contacted Twitter letting them know that we intend to send a subpoena for all files relating to the Gold Bar Reporter’s Twitter account.

Our readers should know that John Pennington is not a resident of Snohomish County, contrary to what he and Gold Bar’s “boob flashing Bubba’s Roadhouse Mayor Crystal Hill” and John Pennington posting on their blog posts titled the Sky Valley Chronicle.
While 44 suffocated to death in the second deadliest preventable natural disaster also known to Snohomish County residents as the Oso mudslides, dumb as post pedophile John Pennington criminally harassed people, is guilt of forging his time sheets, approving home building on the mudslide site even though geologists for years said no building and FEMA had a mitigation plan to buy out home owners, and now we caught him hacking into others computers on county taxpayers dime.

As a result of Snohomish County’s latest public records release, we are now confident to add one skill besides pedophile to John Pennington’s resume, a hacker.

John Scannell Washington State Supreme Court ” The only honest candidate”

“Zamboni John” Scannell files for
Washington State Supreme Court Position #7

Former Hockey Zamboni driver John Scannell has announced he will seek election to Washington State Supreme Court Position # 7. Position # 7 is currently held by Debra Stevens of Spokane.
 
Currently, an attorney residing in Bremerton Washington, John is well known throughout the state for his legal work on behalf of Washington citizens. He filed some of the first lawsuits in Washington under the landlord tenant act and has represented both landlords and tenants since then. He has founded and been active in both tenant and labor unions. He was called the “bureaucrat’s nightmare” by the Seattle Times for his lawsuit on behalf of intermittent workers which won millions of dollars for City of Seattle workers. He blocked the building of one stadium by challenging its public financing, and he joined other anti-stadium activists in challenging others including Safeco Field, all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He was the last man standing among anti-stadium activists, as it took the United States Supreme Court months longer to decide his suit, which held up the building of Safeco Field.
 
He won large settlements for demonstrators who were tear gassed and hit with rubber bullets during the WTO demonstrations.
 
As an attorney he made his living helping workers win their unemployment benefits and wage claims as well as drivers win their traffic tickets including speeding and red light tickets.
 
John has been one of the few attorneys in the State that has actively been supporting the American Bar Association’s criticism of Washington attorney disciplinary system. The Washington State Supreme Court is in charge of the system, but the court has come under sharp criticism for 40 years for its practice of delegating its responsibility to the Washington State Bar Association. The ABA rightly likens this to the practice of putting the fox in charge of the henhouse, with Washington being one of a few states that still continue this practice. The result is that Washington has one of the lowest attorney charging rates in the nation. John Scannell is the only candidate advocating taking the fox out of the henhouse by having the Washington State Supreme Court stop delegating its responsibility to the Washington State Bar Association.
 
Scannell will base his campaign on the issue that he will protect the rights of Washington citizens with decisions that are intelligent, just and ethical.

Judge Okrent ~ Snohomish County

Posted on August 13, 2014 by “SnohomishCountyCorruption”

Most of you know by now I am Jewish by blood, I am not real big into “religion” as it is used & abused by most folks but I still try to learn about the culture & the history.

So our local Chabad had a lecture about Tisha “B’Av & I went & the person teaching was incredible, I wrote a blog post about it even. I sat front seat mesmerized… little did I know I was listening to the devil

SOMEHOW I missed the fact that the speaker was Judge Okrent, the same Judge who I thought was actually going to follow the law but obviously had his own agenda.

For those of you who know me personally or anyone that is autistic I don’t do facial recognition, it has to be facial memorization in order for me to recognize anyone. It is really weird because I can describe someone’s face well enough for a 5 year old to draw a composite sketch of them but there is a disconnect in my head for random meetings

When I got into Judge Okrent’s courtroom, I thought I had finally found Justice for my animals & myself.He said he would keep the case in his court if I wanted, I said yes like a dumbass, little did I know that he was just making sure they could bend me over & screw me without any other Judge getting in the way.

When I sat in that Chabad I thought it so sad that this man in front of me had taken a job in “the law” instead of being the teacher he wanted to be.

When I got the oral decision, I fell to my knees & cried my heart out. I know that my “case” was perfect because an attorney who charges 100’s of dollars per hour & a very well known prosecutor gave me the outline, they warned me not to trust this Judge, one even said I would probably lose even if he came into court with me.

I don’t even remember how I figured out that this wonderful teacher & this worthless Judge were one in the same but I was talking to someone about what he did to me & once again I started crying.I didn’t even realize how bad this hurts me still everyday. Most of the pain comes from being abused by the very system that should’ve protected me & my animals.

As I get gear up for my Federal case I have to relive all of this over & over again. I keep having the same nightmares about my dogs & my cat. All I can do is pray that someone somewhere will FOLLOW the law, & that someday soon my babies will be with me & this nightmare will be over. Knowing what I know now I will do my best to make sure none of these ingrates do to others what they have done to me.

In my research I have found many many many other very questionable decisions Judge Okrent has made & they fall in line with the chain of command at the center of all of this corruption but that is for another story

I just want you to know that if you ever come across this guy RUN, change your court date, change your courtroom get the frick out of there ASAP. Seriously, he didn’t even put out a written decision on my case within the required 30 days, I had to file my appeal with no decision, & they (appeals & supreme) gave ME a bunch of crap over it. I didn’t understand at the time just how deeply he was involved in this other nonsense but I do now & I can prove it.

He is also protecting the WSBA in another case. All I can do is hope he is just a Jew by religion, not by blood as I wouldn’t want to share one single gene with this person, not one!

GRUNSTEIN

Blog Radio Interview with Robert Grundstein coming soon


Update: More public records linking Linda Eide to Ronald Meltzer ( guardian who was stealing Robert Grundstein’s mother’s estate with the assistance of Linda Eide ( one must wonder if she is receiving a financial pay off?)


Since Mr. Grundstein’s latest biography below, we’ve learned a lot about Washington State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide including these facts:

ATTORNEY ROBERT GRUNDSTEIN

Attorney Robert Grunstein disbarred only after he filed a WSBA complaint and sued a WSBA Board member named attorney Ronald Meltzer. Meltzer managed to use his influence inside WA Court’s to get himself assigned as a the Court appointed guardian over Robert Grunstein’s mother’s trusts totaling millions.

STATEMENT OF THE  CASE
In 2007, Robert Grunstein’s mother was sick and dying. Attorney Ronald Meltzer was Ms. Grunstein’s legal administrator.  A legal administrator is hired to look after their client’s best interests.  When Robert Grunstein started investigating where his mother’s money disappeared to, he rightfully went to attorney Ronald Meltzer with questions. Instead, Grunstein was stonewalled and Meltzer refused to answer any questions as it related to thousands of dollars missing from his mother’s accounts.  As a result, Grunstein sued Meltzer for breaching his fudiciary duties to his mother.

Attorney Meltzer used his friends inside the WSBA’s elite Board of Governors to go after Mr. Grunstein claiming he was practicing law without a license. At the time Robert Grunstein filed suit his WSBA license was ” inactive.”  Meltzer never denied stealing thousands of dollars from Mr. Grusntein’s mother, but instead he used his friend and WSBA’s lead RICO attorney Linda Eide to go after Grunstein’s WSBA license.

It’s gets even better, so hold onto your seat!  WSBA’s LInda Eide then used Attorney Meltzer as a prime witness against Mr. Grunstein inside a WSBA disciplinary proceedings. That’s right, the WSBA’s lead RICO attorney Linda Eide called her friend and thief Ronald Meltzer to testify against a non-active attorney whose only crime was trying to stop Linda Eide’s friend and WSBA Board member Ronald Meltzer from stealing his mother’s money.

WSBA’s lead criminal counsel Linda Eide refused comment for this story.  ” Silence is golden” and we’ve never been sued.


WRITTEN BY GUEST WRITER ROBERT GRUNSTEIN, a former Washington Bar member

First Amendment Defender Robert Grunstein’s true account of how the Washington State Bar’s political operative and lead counsel Linda Eide’s political attack forced Mr. Grunstein to take a closer look at corruption inside Washington State’s little whore house, also known as the Washington State Bar Asssociation.
“Vendetta” tells the hidden story of an attorney who was pursued across the country by several sets of police and banned from all Ohio court review after publishing an editorial critical of a Bedford Ohio judge. It exposes the sequestered and organized corruption of a politicized state judiciary that intentionally failed on an alarming scale from the local to the federal level. The failure not only represents a ruined structure, but the grass-roots deterioration of American character. “Vendetta” shows how elected judiciaries fail and how judges, police, prosecutors and even court clerical staff turned institutions charged with maintaining ethical standards into criminal, personal interest groups.
“You don’t make any money if you tell the truth in court. You have to lie or you lose your credibility.”

What should be a matter of national concern has been underpublicized among a population of over-educated salesmen (aka, attorneys). These pale conventionalists from Washington State have embraced fear and the failure of American Constitutional culture in exchange for income. The purveyor of this fear is Office of Disciplinary counsel and their staff of third rate minds and 9th rate characters.

The history of Disciplinary counsel is curious. As part of the State Bar, it is a state agency created by statute but is run and controlled by the Supreme Court.  It used to staffed by one or two representatives, but after the docket of complaints grew in the late 1980s and early 90s, the office was increased on an ad hoc basis. The accumulated files of complaints were administered but then there was nothing to do. The attorneys hired by Disciplinary Counsel were second- rate attorneys no one else wanted and who had no lateral mobility. Remember, in the Public Sector, stupid is better. So, the office adopted an agenda to maintain itself and now has 35 employees who are charged with finding fault and extorting legal fees from people it targets; under the protection of the WA Supreme Court.

The irony is staggering and should induce existential nausea in everyone other than Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot. The WA Supreme Court is charged with reviewing cases administered by the business it runs, and the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel is a business. Every year, scores of attorneys (almost exclusively sole practitioners) are charged by the bar. A common scenario is for the Bar to over-prosecute and then to negotiate with the targeted attorney for a lesser disposition in exchange for attorney fees to the bar for every activity it conducted against the attorney and the waiver of a hearing.  Average amounts for a settled dispute without hearing (Admonition/suspension, etc.) are five to seven thousand dollars. That’s several hundred thousand to the Bar every year.

If you choose to go to hearing, the initial hearing will be conducted by the Bar and a Hearing officer it chose using rules it wrote in cooperation with the state Supreme Court. The initial determination to proceed against you is made by a Bar committee.  Your first administrative review will be before a panel chosen by the Bar. Your final appeal will be before the WA Supreme Court which is asked to judge a Respondent who provides income to the business the Supreme Court administers in the event penalties are confirmed.

Can anyone say Separation of Powers? This is the type of conflict for which Bar brings charges on a regular basis.

It’s a fact of life that maintenance values are stronger than moral values and anyone who challenges the bar is punished.  Attorney Karen Unger was pursued for over two years. It cost her between 70 and 80 thousand dollars to defend against bad charges which were finally dismissed by a hearing officer who said “there is nothing here” and added that Bar appeared to have sequestered evidence in Unger’s favor.  That hearing officer was never used again. An attorney named Schaefer was disciplined for exposing a judge who took bribes. Anton Miller was disciplined for writing a satirical poem about the WA Supreme Court.

In 2006, the ABA did a study on attorney discipline in WA State. It ordered the bar to get discipline out of the state bar and said “the fox was in charge of the hen-house”. This was disregarded.

Robert Grundstein Suits in Washington and Vermont Federal Courts
See 12-35792 (9th circuit) and  13 CV 300 (Vermont Fed. District)

Grundstein is a resident of Vermont who had been on inactive WA status for over a decade. He came to the attention of the bar after he published an editorial about a corrupt judge in Ohio. This judge was subsequently removed from office during the FBI raids in Cleveland, Ohio.  Prior to the raids, a vendetta was pursued against Grundstein and perjured charges were brought against him. The prosecutor, judge, county sheriff and even the docket clerk connected to his case were removed from office. The prosecutor, sheriff and docket clerk were imprisoned.
Bar knew of this happenstance in 2007 and chose to not pursue charges. Grundstein spoke with the head of ODC, Douglas Ende and explained what was going on in Ohio. 4 years later, bar changed its mind and decided to bring charges. The Complaint asked for probation. Grundstein sued to enjoin the hearing in Federal Court since he claimed there was no venue or jurisdiction in WA State and that WA case law insisted the Bar must bring an action within one year of the time it learns of an offense. (there is no statute of limitations for bar actions!)

At hearing, bar amended its Complaint to ask for disbarment. This violates every rule on Due Process there is. The Complaint is not a moving target.
After hearing, it removed all Grundstein exculpatory evidence from the record.  Bar engaged in obstruction of justice, spoliation of evidence, fraud and federal and state crimes. The evidence included letters of recommendation and decisive exhibits in his favor. There were 42 in all.  The Bar claimed Grundstein didn’t submit any evidence, even though it was entered over 80 pages of transcript and provided to bar before, during and after hearing again.  When asked about “Brady v Maryland”, the bar said “Brady” rights didn’t apply to the Bar.

The Hearing Officer (Lisa Hammel of “Williams and Williams”; principal, Kinnon Williams is on the State Bar Judicial Selection Committee) permitted this to happen and refused to hold Linda Eide, Office of Disciplinary Counsel prosecutor, responsible.

Grundstein filed for an appeal to the Supreme Court within 18 days. The Supreme Court would not hear an appeal despite the fact that it’s rules allow 30 days to file and that WA State is one of the few states whose Constitution guarantees the right of appeal.

To expose the criminal behavior of the State Bar, Linda Eide, Lisa Hammel and the entire structure, Grundstein sued in the W. District of WA and Vermont. The W. District of  WA abstained. As it turns out, the judge made his career in King county and refused to embarrass the partisan relations of a politicized judiciary.  Vermont should be an entirely different scenario.

Fascism does not necessarily include concentration camps, racism and shrill rhetoric. It’s the combination of political, economic and legal power in a small group of people only accountable to themselves.  The judiciary becomes and interest group and rules on the basis of income distribution among favored people and the maintenance of professional status. This is worst where the judges are elected. WA State is one of only 4 states which has no limits on judge campaign contributions.  The only people who can participate in such a legal system are the ones who should not have access to the administration and character of a legal system.  The FBI raids on the legal administration in Cleveland, Ohio and the special prosecutions in  Phoenix, Arizona were necessary to intercept what were essentially coup d’etats.

The Washington State Bar has proven that the best and most lucrative device for corrupt parties is an ethical system.
