Gold Bar residents threaten to Recall Linda “High as a Kite” Loen

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

 

The Washington State Auditor’s Office cited the City of Gold Bar for misappropriation of public funds for the 4th year in a row. Since 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s public officials, including Crystal Hill Pennington ( a.k.a Berg, convicted of bank fraud in 2005), Joe Beavers, and now Linda ” High as a Kite” Loen have been stealing from the City’s water funds to pay attorney Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend) to continue covering up computer crimes committed by disgraced former Snohomish County Department of Emergency political appointee John E. Pennington.

One onlooker described new Gold Bar Councilmember Kendall Wallace’s face as ” as white as a ghost” as residents crowded city hall on Tuesday demanding answers as to why the City of Gold Bar is now facing a water rate increase of 271 %.

One resident screamed ” We need to Recall Linda Loen! ”  The concerned and pissed off Gold Bar citizen need not worry because a Recall Petition is being drafted against Linda Loen, and Florence Davi Martin ( who also voted to misappropriate public funds to continue funding the criminal racketeering crimes committed by attorney Michael Kenyon and John E. Pennington).   We are awaiting the Washington State Auditor records for much needed evidence to make sure the Recall against Linda Loen sticks. But Loen can be assured that its coming! 100 % for certain. 

The Department of Health rejected the City’s ” Beaverized”  water comp plan last year, as Joe Beavers fraudulently claimed that he was an ” Engineer” and inferred that he was capable of making adjustments to the water plan without a licensed Washington State Engineer involved.  A complaint against Joe Beavers was filed with the Dept. of Licensing and Joe Beavers was ORDERED to stop referring to himself as an Engineer.

Then the Department of Health issued a DEMAND for the City to produce a valid water comp plan and the Washington State Auditor again ORDERED the City to stop stealing from the City’s water fund to fund litigation.  Litigation that is now linked to helping Attorney Michael Kenyon and G. Geoffrey Gibbs covering up their little Racketeering scandal committed in 2008.

G. Geoffrey Gibbs, attorney Michael Kenyon, Sandra Sullivan ( aka Meadowcraft), Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington and John E. Pennington are amongst several criminal racketeers’ being sued in United States Federal District Court.

The city claims that the purpose of the water rate fee amendment is to fund badly needed repairs to the water system’s aging infrastructure. However, the City left out the fact that its been misusing Gold Bar water funds – over $1,000,000.00 – to fund litigation to protect attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct nicely outlined in the RICO suit filed in Us Federal Court on December 28, 2015.  See link above.

Gold Bar resident Toni Jurin stated “My understanding is that well four was undrinkable; that there was way too much arsenic in it and that’s why we’re mixing it with well three,” “Sooner or later that problem has to be resolved.”

 “Our water quality is good. We had one hit of .01 milligrams per liter on arsenic in well four,” John Light said. 

Better question for John Light is ” since he doesn’t live in Gold Bar, how would you know? After all the city uses bottled water inside City Hall.”

Six Gold Bar residents demanded a town hall meeting before any rate increase occurs. 

Councilmember Davi  ” Cupcake” Martin responded by issuing condescending remarks to citizens saying ” we’ve already held meetings”. 

There’s only one problem for Davi “Cupcake” Martin, the City violated Open Public Meetings Act when it held these “secret meetings without publication.”

 the city held workshops and presentations with very limited attendance. According to the city, a workshop was held on Sept. 22 and a presentation by a water-rate consultant was held on Oct. 6. Further council discussion was held on Nov. 3, Dec. 1 and Dec. 15, all of which were publicized on the city’s website. After the Dec. 1 council meeting, a mass-mailer was sent to the city’s water customers, apprising them of the proposed rate change. 

“Our job as the city is to supply good water, and unfortunately we have a very, very old infrastructure that needs a lot of work,” Martin said. “The point is, we’re stuck between a rock and a hard spot. We have good water now, but it needs to be maintained. We can’t maintain it on what we’re charging now.”

Steven Fore, who owns Alpine Adventures, an outdoor white water recreation business on U.S. 2 stated that he has concerns over the city’s strategy, which appears to him to be completely ineffective. He has no problem paying an increased rate, he said, but the city’s current approach will not solve the problem. 

Ms. Fore’s statement about strategy is related to how Gold Bar has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding racketeering crimes committed in emails.

The Supreme Court has decided to review the emails in question, but since we already know what’s behind the curtain inside those emails, we’re going to hold off publishing what it is that the City has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water fund covering up… all for a pedophile named John E. Pennington ( fired from Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management on January 1, 2016, after he killed 43 Oso residents in the most preventable loss of life natural disaster in Washington State’s history).

Steve Fore admonished the council for “chasing away” Councilmember Lee Hodo, who resigned in December. Hodo has extensive background in engineering, Fore said, and is well-equipped to handle the current issues. He referred to Hodo as “the exact person you need to fix the problem.”

Don’t worry Mr. Fore, the City of Gold Bar is being sued for Racketeering and our hope is that the criminals who have been misusing our resources for their personal gain will be locked up behind bars once we start taking depositions.

Tracy Cotterill said “This sounds like it’s bigger than we are… Has anyone thought about PUD? “

“It’s our town. It’s not your town,”“Do we need to start putting petitions out? Would that do it? If we put out a petition demanding that we be allowed to vote on any water increases, would you let us in then?” Steve Fore said.

Bravo Mr. Fore, its time that others lend a helping hand to those of us who have been fighting the massive Racketeering cancer that Washington State Bar Board of Governor and number Snohomish County criminal G. Geoffrey  Gibbs and attorney Michael Kenyon have perpetrated upon our community all in an effort to cover up the criminal racketeering conduct of Crystal Hill Pennington ( Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005), John E. Pennington ( former DEM Sno Co who is linked to missing children  all over the Pacific Northwest) and attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct.

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.

Judge Ronald Leighton’s refusal to “recuse” himself from a case that involves his friends undermines our entire United States Federal Court’s integrity.  Let’s hope that the U.S. Court of Appeals 9th Circuit will restore citizens faith that the US Federal Courts are supposed to enforce justice, regardless of who the defendants are, and should never be used as a tool for the Washington State Bar Associations’ small elite members

“License to steal” with the assistance of the Washington State Bar

How Guardians from the Washington State Bar Disciplinary Officers

are given a license to steal from Washington State’s most vulnerable adults


Forward:

When lawyers steal from their clients, It’s We the taxpayers that end up paying the bill.

Attorney Lin ( Linda) O’Dell ( aka Worthington), an attorney handpicked by the Washington State Bar Association  (WSBA) Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) to hear complaints filed against lawyers by clients ( non clients should have no forum) uses a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech to intimidate vulnerable adults, while she uses WSBA influence to continue stealing and depleting elderly clients trusts.

But O’Dell doesn’t do this alone, she gets a pass from the WSBA ODC.

Once Lin O’Dell and other attorneys involved in the same conduct as stated herein deplete the clients’ trust accounts, they place the client on Medicare and/or on the Medicaid system.

Our elderly deserve to die with dignity, and without the elite few WSBA members associated with the Office of Disciplinary Council and WSBA Boards lining their pockets with the gold of others, stealing with the assistance of a few Commissioners’ and Judges, at the expense of the United States taxpayers.

We have drafted a “Brady List” of Judges, Commissioners, and attorneys we know are involved in criminal conduct as outlined herein and will be posting names soon to our “ Brady List.”

Sadly, attorney Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell is not the exception, but she is part of the Racketeering scandal exposed over the past year involving what we call the center of the rotten onion, the WSBA ODC.

Onion

The WSBA ODC is using police officers, attorneys and judges to trump up criminal charges on honest hard working citizens and attorneys who speak out against corrupt government officials, and we ( Americans) must do everything in our power to peacefully and legally stop them. Their actions of going after honest lawyers and whistleblowers who attempt to expose corrupt judges, attorneys and police officers stifles our free market economy, and as in my case, violates Sherman Antitrust laws.

We the people are the checks and balances to an honest and clean government. As a person who grew up with two activist parents, who were no parents of the year by any stretch of the truth, I was brought up to believe there is no greater sacrifice or greater good on Mother Earth then helping the sick, elderly, abused, exposing corrupt government officials, and helping the wrongfully convicted. I value the First Amendment to US Constitution as the greatest gift Thomas Jefferson’s gave to America, more valuable than a Bar license.


 

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. Cory Booker

 

Attorney Lin O’Dell, a thief, an attorney, a nurse, and a guardian  

Washington State Bar (WSBA) Disciplinary Hearing Officer Lin (Linda) O’Dell (aka Worthington) is stealing from Washington State vulnerable adults, manly over the age of 60, and being aided by the WSBA’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) members, Scott Busby and Linda Eide, and her partner, a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech ( Spokane).

Attorney Lin O’Dell’s Linked In page:

Lin O'Dell - LinkedIn 2015-10-04 10-04-24

Attorney Lin O’ Dell brags about her days as an administrative hearing officer for the Department of Health, she worked as a nurse and is now a guardian overseeing elderly clients trust accounts.

Lin O’Dell is not licensed in Idaho, only Washington. A relevant issue discussed later.

Does being a nurse or a guardian, especially one that has never engaged in the practice of law constitute qualifications under the WSBA guidelines for hearing officers?

Simply put, no.  I ‘ve researched the WBSA rules on appointing hearings officers and discovered that in order for the WSBA member to be appointed as a hearing officer one must have been engaged in the practice of law.  Here, Ms. O’ Dell appears to be the exception to this rule, since she never practiced law.

This begs the question on who appointed an unqualified attorney to hear issues relating to violation by WSBA members?

According to the WSBA public records officer, Ms. O’Dell was handpicked by another shyster from Spokane, attorney Joseph Nappi Jr. Mr. Nappi’s investigative file and his cash only deals with clients will be discussed in another investigative blog coming soon.


Attorney Lin O’Dell, using convicted killer Mark Plivilech to intimidate elderly vulnerable clients 

Now, on its face this may not seem too bad in the scheme of things, but lets add in this bit of facts.  Lin O’Dell’s background was searched extensively, and what we yielded was that she shacked up with a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech and extensive IRS and other financial problems.  YES our readers are reading this correctly; WSBA attorney and hearing officer Lin O’Dell’s partner of choice is a convicted killer.

Plivilech

If a WSBA hearing officer having a convicted killer as her partner of choice doesn’t sound bad enough, hold onto your seats because we have some more wonderful news.

According to internal court declarations and an extensive background check our investigators ran on Mark Plivilech, Lin O’Dell acting as a guardian for elderly vulnerable adults – many bed ridden elderly Americans- listed killer Mark Plivilech as a “case manager” on twenty (22) of her elderly clients’ accounts.

Once I learned that a convicted killer was acting as a case manager on vulnerable adults accounts, I called the Washington State Attorney General’s Office asking one simple question ” Can a convicted killer serve as a case manager on vulnerable or elderly Washingtonians trust account s or as a guardian ad litem?”

The Washington State Attorney General’s Office started laughing, for which I said  ” No, I am serious.”  The phone became silent for a minute and the attorney general said ” NO, absolutely not !” very loudly.


Attorney Lin O’Dell has stolen  $3,000,000.00 + from the Shank Trust Account, and was caught forging documents

O'Dell theft 4M

Court documents show that at the time of Norma Shank’s death, The Shank Trust had almost $4,000,000.00, at the end of 2011.

Paula Fowler is from Idaho, and how and why she came into contact with a thief and attorney named Lin O’ Dell can best be described by one of her closest friends who said ” Paula went into Colville attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce, and came out with as a guardian ward. But not before Pruitt Hamm made exparte contacts with Lin O’Dell’s attorney in Idaho, Pamela Massey. Soon thereafter, Massey and O’Dell forged documents claiming that  Ms. Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, had revoked the first Shank Will written in 2000, and only after Norma Shank was diagnosed with dementia, did this new Will appear with the assistance of attorney Lin O’Dell, attorney Richard Wallace, and Idaho attorney Paula Massey.”

We reviewed the both Wills and believe all attorneys involved should be charged with criminal Racketeering as the Will’s metadata has been stripped ( to hide when and who wrote it)


Exploiting and stealing from our elderly vulnerable adults

The only living Will of Norma Shank was signed in 2000, leaving her entire estate worth well over $5,000,000.00 to Paula Fowler, with no trust. No trust until after Paula Fowler went into attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce and came as a guardian of Lin O’Dell, and only after attorney Pruitt Hamm made phone calls to an attorney from Idaho named Pamela Massey. An attorney hired by Lin O’Dell to help siphon elderly and vulnerable clients trust accounts through nursing homes in Spokane and drug rehab centers in Idaho.

Attorney Pamela Massey and Lin O’Dell were contacted for comment. As of today, both have refused.

According to attorney Pruitt Hamm’s attorney bills in the Fowler matter; no sooner did Paula Fowler leave Pruitt’s office seeking a divorce, Pruitt Hamm was on the phone with Idaho attorney Pamela Massey ( an Idaho attorney who represents Lin O’Dell).  Once Pruitt Hamm learned that Paula Fowler was worth well over $5,000,000.00, he conspired with attorney Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey to steal from a vulnerable adult.

Over the last three years, attorneys Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey have stolen over $3,000,000.00 + from Paula Fowler, but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell forging documents, and has stolen over $3,000,000.00 +, but Lin O’Dell did not act alone

Court records from Pamela Massey’s Office in Idaho confirm that Lin O’Dell depleted non-Washington resident Paula Fowler’s trust accounts ( known as a Shank Trust, Wells Fargo, Idaho) to provide ” legal fees, at legal representation.”

There’s only problem for attorney Lin O’Dell, she is not an Idaho attorney.  Our counsel said ” a non attorney cannot provide legal representation without a license.”

From records we retrieved from Stevens County Court, in December 2011, the Shank Trust had $3,900,000.00 plus dollars in the account with no forensic accounting ever given to Ms. Fowler or the Court, even though Lin O’Dell was ORDERED to provide such documents to the Court by. A court order  Ms. O’Dell continues to thumb her nose at, while she continues to steal from Ms. Fowler but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell stealing Ms. Fowler’s assets, using convicted killer to intimidate Ms. Fowler

Abusive email 2

As we correctly stated, attorney Lin O’Dell is crossing state lines, from Washington to Idaho, using her convicted killer Mark Plivilech to steal and threaten vulnerable clients.

As the alleged “trustee” Lin O’Dell is supposed to be paying Paula Fowler’s bills, housing, car, and food.

Abusive Email 4

For nearly four months in early 2014, Lin O’Dell refused to provide basic shelter for Ms. Fowler ( as the Shank Trust mandates) leaving Ms. Fowler living in a truck at a truck stop.

Imagine your parents leave you a $5,000,000.00 trust, and the alleged trustee refuses to provide you shelter, leaving you homeless, because several outstanding members of the Washington State Bar forged documents and stole millions, what would you do?

File WSBA complaints for fraud and theft?  And that’s exactly what Paula Fowler did, and who received that WSBA complaints was WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide.  Ms. Eide’s criminal conduct as exposed by attorney Robert Grunstein was exposed in his book ” Vendetta” and will be discussed in detail in another investigative blog coming soon.

Linda Eide’s criminal conduct against the Gold Bar Reporter will be discussed at length in my book ” No sunshine where the cockroaches roam” in my last chapter ( still being written) ” Reforming the Washington State Bar, taking politics out of the practice of law.”



Judge Patrick Monasmith, a man with integrity, orders court officer Joseph Valente to investigate attorney Lin O’Dell

Just to make sure our readers understand fully what’s going on here, see above. Lin O’Dell tells the Court that Paula Fowler needs a guardian because she has an abusive ex-husband who controls her, but then writes a check to attorney Clark Peterson ( now Judge Clark Peterson, Idaho),  to defend Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband in a criminal felony vulnerable adult charge filed in Idaho for abusing Paula Fowler’s ( nee Shank) mother Norma Shank.

But hold onto your seats because it’s much better – if you can believe it !

10041503 (2) 10041501 (3)

Not only did attorney Lin O’Dell write a check to Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband’s private attorney to defend against criminal felony charges for elder abuse of Ms. Fowler’s mother ( the one who started the 5 Million dollar trust for Paula Fowler also known as Shank Trust ), but Lin O’Dell uses Norma Shank’s trust account to write a $5000.00 check to attorney Clark Peterson, Idaho, and $250.00 to attorney Dick Sayre ( for a consultation, pretty harmless on Sayre’s and Peterson’s part more likely than not) to defend the man who was just charged with felony elderly abuse.

We’re not sure about our readers, but we’re just not sure how paying an Idaho attorney to defend against elder abuse of Paula Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, benefited the Norma Shank Trust.  But if our readers have any idea, please email those to us at GoldBarReporter@Comcast.net

Imagine someone steals from you and then having the court order you to pay for the defendant’s criminal defense counsel. With no surprise this is exactly what attorney Lin O’Dell did in this matter.


Lin O’Dell, a criminal with a license to steal, a stellar example in favor of reforming the WSBA

Ex-Husbands Statement

The fact that Lin O’Dell and killer Mark Plivilech were using a USPS Post Office Box in Duvall Washington to accept financial pay offs from Snohomish County’s bum who killed 43 Oso residents, John E. Pennington, and his convicted bank frauding wife Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005), is coming to a US Federal Court soon.

Gold Bar activist files a Federal Trade Complaint against Washington State Bar

Re: North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners v Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

Dear FTC-

I’d like to file an anti-trust complaint against the WA State Bar Association.  About six years ago, I started reporting on corruption inside local government agencies here in Washington State on www.goldbarreporter.com  For over six years as a member of the media who was also a member of the WA State Bar, most readers never really knew that I held a WSBA License in Washington State, until a political appointee ( non-client) John E. Pennington filed a WSBA complaint against my WA State license.

Since Mr. Pennington was not a client but a political appointee who we had been reporting on for child and spousal abuse, I had no reason to believe that the WA State Bar had any jurisdiction in this matter.  Later I learned that the person at the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary (ODC) that John Pennington filed a Bar complaint with at the WSBA is also a mutual political friend of his named Linda Eide.  Linda Eide is a first relative to a Senator Tracy Eide. Tracy Eide is a very good friend to the so called grievant, John E. Pennington. Both Tracy Eide and Pennington served inside the WA State Legislature together during the late 1990s.

From July to November 2013, I answered the WA State lead counsel Linda Eide’s request for comment with affirmative defenses (1)  No client;  (2) a political appointee subject to First Amendment protected free speech and (3) no jurisdiction over my Gold Bar Reporter news files ( RCW 5.68.010).   The allegation under (3) came only after Linda Eide issued an illegal subpoena for  “ all Gold Bar Reporter files relating to John Pennington” a non-client.

Oh course I objected pursuant to ELC 5.5 on First Amendment grounds, RCW 5.68.010 ( only a court can issue a subpoena for media files not the WSBA ODC) and WA State Const. prohibition against going after citizens ( lawyer or not) on issues that amount to “ private affairs.”  ELC 5.5 mandated that Linda Eide suspend the deposition and subpoena des tecum until she could obtain a court order, but she continued with the deposition.  This occurred in December 2013, and then by Feb 2014, she later changed the charge to “  You didn’t show up to a deposition.”

I have never had a complaint filed against my Bar license by a client, and up until 2013, I would never have believed that the WA State Bar ODC would conduct themselves in a way that I believe violates Sherman Antitrust laws until I read FTC v. North Carolina Board Dental Examiners case.

  1. In Feb 2014, ignoring years of precedent mandating that the Bar stay out of my private affairs,  the WA State Bar issued a formal complaint against my license.  By March 2014, an attorney named Lin O’Dell was assigned as the hearing officer on my case.  At no time did O’Dell allow me to place any documents into the record and worked with lead counsel Linda Eide to stop me from deposing the grievant John E. Pennington.
  2. In June 2014, I had my private investigators investigate Lin O’Dell.  We learned that O’Dell had been cited by Judge Monasmith in Stevens County Superior Court for stealing from a vulnerable adult named Paula Shank ( Fowler).
  3. In July 2014, I also learned WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell also purchases elderly clients homes for pennies.
  4. In July 2014, I learned that Lin O’Dell takes her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech to clients homes with her to intimidate clients.
  5. In July 2014, I learned that Lin O’Dell’s convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech set up a post office box within three blocks from the grievant John Pennington home, even thougth O’Dell lives in Spokane ( an eight hour round trip drive from Spokane to Duvall WA to retrieve her US mail).
  6. Also learned that Lin O’Dell and Chief WSBA Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr have a scam going whereas O’Dell picks up clients from nursing homes and drug rehabs depletes her clients trust accounts and then send clients to WSBA Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr’s to probate.
  7. Paula Fowler’s estate appears to have hundreds of thousands of dollars missing with no explanation from O’Dell as to why she is charging Ms. Fowler’s estate legal rates for legal  representation when in fact O’Dell is not licensed in Idaho where Ms. Fowler lives.  ( I looked at Guardian pay rate which appears to be around $70 per hour but O’Dell charged around 10K per month to Fowler’s 2 M trust).
  8.  We also learned that Mark Plivilech appears to be stealing elderly clients identity and billing elderly clients of O’Dell’s to put unnecessary additions to their homes ( keeping in mind most of O’Dell’s clients are elderly bed ridden).

The above allegations were submitted to the WA State Bar as a complaint against attorney Lin O’Dell, who I believe was accepting bribes from John Pennington using a US Post Office Box in Duvall Washington to ensure that I would be disbarred strictly for reporting on John Pennington’s criminal conduct up here in Snohomish County Washington.

After reading the FTC v. Board of Dental Examiners I believe the WA State Bar is not supervised by its governing body ( Supreme Court) and has violated Sherman Anti-trust laws. I know this to be true because the Supreme Court Clerk Carpenter was contacted asking the Justices if they knew what was going on inside the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel and his response was something like “ The Supreme Court does not bother themselves with the Office of Disciplinary Counsel”

The WA State Bar ODC members are active market participants attempting to stifle competition by disbarring members who question government agency employees.  Almost 80 % of all ODC members are market active participants who are misusing their positions inside the elite Boards to stop and stifle competition.   The Supreme Court of WA who is supposed to be supervising the ODC members admits in an email that they are not.

I wish to proceed with a formal complaint against the WA State Bar for Sherman Anti-trust violations.

 Sohomish County Daily Herald publishes intentionally false story as political favors to advertisers

22e77a45014944360c6d1e311c5ad523

Snohomish County Daily Herald Editor, Scott North,  publishes intentionally false article as political favor to to its largest advertiser Geoffrey Gibbs, an attorney with Anderson Hunter, guilty of fraud. Although Geoffrey Gibbs was charged with “fraud” by the Washington State attorney General’s Office, he was able to get himself appointed to the WSBA Board of thieves (Governors).

This just after Block was notified that she was nominated for the Bunting Award from Washington Coalition for Open Government just behind the Daily Herald.

What was exposed by http://www.snocoreporter.com documents massive WA State Bar corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs using his influences with WA Courts to “fix cases” and his influence has lead to 43 % of all disbarred lawyers inside  Washington State coming from Snohomish County. In comparison, King County, which houses 1/2 of all Washington State attorneys amounts to only 11 % of disciplined lawyers in Washington State.

My mother’s always said ” if it smells like coffee, it probably is.”  The Snohomish County Reporter has investigated Snohomish County’s corruption and posted her findings below.

See http://snocoreporter.com/

But most of you know me as the journalist and author who resigned from the Washington State Bar citing massive corruption.  Honest as they get; never been convicted of a crime, and pay more than my fair share of taxes.

As my readers can imagine, I was surprised to receive an email while in sitting on the shores in the great state of Maine writing my final chapter in my book ” No sunshine where the cockroaches roam ”  in its final chapter ” Reforming the Washington State Bar, taking politics out of the practice of law” published by the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s Editor Scott North which meets the level of actual malice.  I demanded that the Herald publish an immediate retraction, but the Herald’s liability is already assumed under Washington State law.

HOW SCOTT NORTH’S STORY MEETS THE LEVEL OF ACTUAL MALICE

Our legal counsel stated that when a news source publishes a story it knows to be false, Our Supreme Court held it’s actual malice.  Scott North knew that Gold Bar activist Anne Block was not ” suspended” as a result of the Washington State Bar’s ongoing investigation, but he made a conscious decision to publish this false story anyways.

Our Court’s held in New York Times v. Sullivan that when a news company publishes stories that that it knows to be false, actual malice is presumed.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co._v._Sullivan

The Washington State Bar’s own website confirms that Anne Block’s icense was suspended for ” non-payment” of dues , not as Scott North falsely published as a result of an ongoing disciplinary investigation.

See https://www.mywsba.org/LawyerDirectory/LawyerProfile.aspx?Usr_ID=37640

Furthermore, Block’s resignation letter, which Scott North copied in on, stated her reasons for resigning, all which included her desire to write and expose corrupt government officials including those connected to the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary, mainly attorneys Linda Eide and Lin O’Dell.

See http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20150727/NEWS01/150729193/%27Implausible%27-Gold-Bar-lawsuit-gets-tossed.

What our readers may not know if that Anderson Hunter is one of the Herald’s largest advertisers and I republished articles documenting that Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs is guilty of fraud as stated and published by the Washington State attorney general’s office.  See http://www.snocoreporter.com

The Snohomish County Daily Herald intentionally publishing a false story incorrectly reporting ” the Bar suspended Block’s license as an ongoing disciplinary investigation ”  is simply NOT true and Scott North’s only record as it relates to this issue was a copy of Block’s resignation letter to the Bar stating that she was resigning after public records obtained from Snohomish County via RCW 42.56 documented that Snohomish County’s former Director ( removed and placed on paid administrative leave  after he caused 43 deaths in Oso mudslide debacle) and WA State lead counsel Linda Eide were “plotting and planning” via email a WSBA complaint as a result of Block’s First Amendment protected activity months (Sept 2013) before any investigation started against Block.

The United States Post Office records documented that John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud in 2005 and charged with child abuse of a six year child in November 2008) were “bribing” a Washington State Bar hearing officer named Lin O’Dell, using her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech using public post office box  Mark Plivilech set up a post office box in Duvall Washington. O’Dell and Pliivlech live five hours away in Cheney Washington, but within weeks after O’Dell was assigned to investigate political appointee John Pennington’s complaint solely based on First Amendment protected activity, all accurate stories on John E. Pennington’s molesting two boys in a San Diego church and the fact that John Pennington is a prime suspect in the rape of 5 year old little girl from Cowlitz County, within three blocks of the Penningtons home in Duvall Washington.

 Mr Plivilech and Ms O’Dell must enjoy these eight hour round trip drives from Spokane to Duvall to retrieve their pay off drops from the Penningtons.

After seeing emails  ( received via the Public Records Act RCW 42.56)  between and among Washington State Bar lead counsel  Linda Eide and John E. Pennington documenting beyond any shadow of a doubt  a personal relationship existed by the corrupt duo in Septembers 2013,  Block resigned from the WA State Bar citing massive corruption, criminal harassment pedophile and former Director John E. Pennington and convicted bank fraudster Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) and further told the Washington State Bar to stay out of her First Amendment protected activity.

Once Gold Bar Reporter Block received a legal opinion that the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s article as stated herein does in fact meet the level of actual malice needed to prevail on a defamation lawsuit, the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s parent company, located in Victoria British Columbia Canada, Black Press, was been notified that it will be sued in U.S. Federal Court for “defamation.”

U. S. Federal Court retains jurisdiction when a company being sued by a Washington resident is an out of the Country defendant.

Contrary to the intentionally false statements Snohomish County’s Daily Herald Editor Scott North published, the Washington State Bar has not taken any disciplinary action against Block because it has NO jurisdiction over a non-client political pedophile John E. Pennington’s complaint based solely upon First Amendment protected actively as a result of Block exposing John E. Pennington as the pedophile he is, and his wife Crystal Hill (nee Berg) for bank fraud (2005 conviction in Sno Co Evergreen District).

But Scott North did get part of his story correct. The Washington State Bar was notified that they will be sued in U.S Federal District under RICO.  An issue Judge Jones, a member of the Washington State Bar’s Board could not address in Block’s RICO suit because the 9th Circuit Chief has issued legal opinion that all WA State Bar members must recuse themselves from cases involving the Bar when the Bar is a defendant.

Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell is now under fraud investigation as a result Our investigation. Lin O’Dell and Plivilech have been stealing client’s identity and monies, almost all elderly clients with no chance of defending themselves. A story the Gold Bar Reporter broke.

The Snohomish County Daily Herald has 24 hours to print and publish a “retraction” and issue an apology letter to Block as it relates to its intentionally false stories,  otherwise Block will exercise her legal right under the 7th Amendment resulting in a defamation suit to be filed in US Federal District Court.

With Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block promising a lawsuit against the Snohomish County Daily Herald within weeks, let’s see how the Snohomish County Daily Herald responds to its editor Scott North’s intentionally  publishing a false story as a favor to its largest advertiser Anderson Hunter only after we started exposing Anderson Hunter’s lawyer Geoffrey Gibbs for fraud and lying on his judicial application as Snohomish County Commission.

According to legal counsel, when a public official files false statements it’s a crime iPn Washington State.

Unlike the Scott North, some news reporters do report the truth. Noah is a great reporter.
