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

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.

In 2015, the Gold Bar Reporter contacted Seattle Times Editor Mike Carter, after having ample evidence that WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’ Dell was using a convicted killer, Mark Plivilech, to steal from O’Dell’s elderly clients, but instead of reporting on WSBA O’Dell theft and fraud, Seattle Times Editor Mike Carter wrote ” Who cares.”

With no surprise, the biggest story involving WSBA corruption, President of WSBA resigns after her arrest warrant is issued, and the Seattle Times does what any embedded ( reporters who are spoon fed stories to look the other way on behalf of advertisers) journalist would do, not report the real news.

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  unlawfully diverted money to Mark Plivilech, a convicted killer, and Lin O’Dell’s fraudulent companies. Companies the duo started so that Lin O’ Dell could transfer client’s money from the elderly person’s trust account to pay Mark Plivilech and mafia friends to make home repairs on elderly clients homes ( many who are over 80 and bed ridden).

In December 2013, Judge Monasmith Steven County Washington found Lin O’Dell guilty of trust embezzlement. The WSBA has yet to take any disciplinary action against O’Dell ( June 24, 2017).

From sources, the WSBA received twelve complaints against Lin O’Dell over the last twenty years for stealing and the WSBA broomed every single one.  An insider from the WSBA said ” it’s common knowledge that lead counsel Linda Eide worked with Lin O’Dell inside the guardian scam” hence why so many complaints were dismissed.

Since 1993, attorney Lin O’Dell has been stealing from Washingtonians, almost all elderly and vulnerable adults. In one case from Pierce County, the Simpson case, the daughter who was caring for her father ended up dead, their house burnt down and a Caboose was stolen by Lin O’ Dell.

Over the last four years, we found at least ten clients Lin O’Dell has been stealing from and committing SSA fraud ( diverting clients SSA funds into her own bank account).  One fact is clear, Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech didn’t steal by themselves, they had a lot of help, including one Spokane County Commissioner, one Spokane County Superior Court Judge, one Stevens County Superior Court Judge, and one Dr Zimmerman ( who fled to Denton Texas once we started reporting on Lin O’Dell’s fraud).

However, WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell didn’t steal without the assistance of the Washington State Bar Association, and the Washington State Supreme Court.

Joe Patrice, a reporter with “Above the Law” wants to know ” What in the World is going on in Washington?”   Joe its simple, the WSBA has been taken over by scammers and fraudsters to further their agenda ( stealing with no accountability).

The 39-year-old Robin Haynes, who last year became the youngest lawyer to hold the President position.   Gonzaga Law School brags that she is a mentor.  This begs a question: Is Ms. Haynes teaching racketeering 101 or how to steal with the assistance of the WSBA?


Sadly Ms. Haynes has been replaced by WSBA Brad Furlong who has ties to more WSBA criminals, Geoffrey Gibbs and his co-conspirators Lin O’Dell ( Gibbs and O’Dell scammed taxpayers out of thousands on the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam of Whispering Pines).

Robin Haynes is well connected with Supreme Court Justices Debra Stephens, Barbara Madsen, Mary Yu and Mary Fairhurst. So much so that Haynes funneled public monies to their campaigns.   The next time our readers decided to contribute to Justice for All, think twice.

How we know this is simple: Robin Haynes bragged about it on her Instagram account.

Robin Haynes “brags” she is a at a backyard Barbie Q with WA State Chief Supreme Justice Mary Fairhurst. Perhaps Justice Fairhurst has never heard of Judicial Ethics Cannon Rules, Appearance of Fairness?

So Joe Patrice, you ask ” What in the World is going on in Washington State? ‘ Well it’s called racketeering, fixing cases, forging and withholding evidence to ensure convictions, fraud, and WSBA elite few members stealing with the assistance of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel ( Linda Eide and Doug Ende).

Washingtonians need not worry but we’re going to abolish the Washington State Bar Association. They are making criminals out of non-criminals and we must do everything in our power to stop them with as much sunshine as possible.  Stay tuned.


STOP CORRUPTION NOW

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.

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.
