Dean Bellamy, linked to Washington State Bar Officer Lin O’Dell and convicted killer Mark Plivilech

Dean Bellamy, a former bank executive  who the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office shot and killed last night is connected to massive government corruption in Washington State.

Another local journalist Brandia posted a story documenting Dean Bellamy’s ties to Washington State Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer husband Mark Plivilech’s ( Spokane) involvement in a housing scam up here in Snohomish County.  With no surprise, Washington State’s very own attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( below), Snohomish County’s very own Whitey Bugler, represented the Snohomish County Housing Authority.  Lin O’Dell and Dean Bellemy started the Whispering Pines, a Snohomish County Housing Authority scam to defraud the taxpayers.

Instead of being disbarred as any common criminal would be, attorney G. Geffrey Gibbs was appointed by the Washington State Supreme Court in charge of financial affairs for the Washington State Bar Association.

Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued five times for racketeering, but each time a suit is filed,  his friends inside U.S. Federal District Court are assigned, violating years of 9th Circuit precedent mandating that all Washington State Bar members be removed and an out of state judge be assigned when the Bar is listed as a defendant

Geoffrey Gibbs is also linked to a very big taxpayer fraud scandal in Snohomish County ( coming soon).


Plivilech

Attorney Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech were recently caught stealing homes, trust monies and art from elderly clients homes  throughout Washington State.  In one case, two care takers who were about to expose Lin O’Dell for theft of clients trust funds all of the sudden died.  (Simpson Estate, Pierce County).  Then conveniently for Lin O’Dell, the Simpson house burned to the ground; Pierce County ruled fire suspicious, more than likely arson.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars missing from elderly estates, and estates only when Lin O’Dell was in charge of guardianship. Many of the O’Dell’s elderly clients homes had her convicted killer husband Mark Plivilech as a lien holder on the home for performing home repairs on terminal clients of O’Dell’s homes.

In most, if not all O’Dell’s guardianship scams, Spokane County Superior Court Judge Annette Plese and Commissioner Grovdahl were on the petitions. Petitions for guardianship that both Judge Plese and Commissioner Grovdahl signed off on for Lin O’Dell against treating medical advice.

The Gold Bar Reporter is investigating over 10 other clients estates where Lini O’Dell and convicted killer Mark Plivilech depleted clients trust accounts, flipping money from one trust account to another ( stealing from Paul to pay Peter), and stealing personal property from elderly clients of Lin O’Dell. Theft includes very expensive art work.

Dean Bellemy was part of a bad business loan scam that helped O’Dell steal elderly clients homes all over Washington State.  Bellamy joined AmericanWest as a commercial loan officer in July 1997.  Bellemy was a senior vice president at American West from January 2002 until May 2005 and was named the banks Lender of the Year for 2004.

 


 

Lin O’Dell Bad Business,Murder, Undue influence (Part 1) Ties to Robert Caruso

I also did not realize how right I was about the fact that this couple is creating and then closing corporations to evade accountability for their scheme. They are also using these corporations to move around ill gotten gains and other people’s property that they had no business selling or moving.

I have also found it very interesting that a good deal of her clients, although deceased, are not listed in the Social Security Index most of them don’t have family so there is no one there to “sound the alarm” and even more disturbing is that a certain Judge has sealed or destroyed most of those clients records.

The Prosecutor who convicted Linda O’Dell’s (Washington State Bar Association Hearing Officer) boyfriend Mark Plivelich Fred Caruso is actually Robert Caruso’s younger brother. What better way to “get back at someone” then to attack their family? It also explains why Mr Caruos (the elder) is always under fire.

It seems when I find another corrupt player I don’t just stumble over it, I come crashing down like thunder on it.

This is a story that is going to need a few parts, maybe more then a few This one is past bizarre and it is deeply disturbing.

Lin O’Dell ~ AKA ~  Linda Diane O’Dell ~ AKA ~ Linda Worthington

I was researching the member’s of the WSBA disciplinary board hearings officers and found that this woman lives with a man who killed his best friend and then took a nap

I see a familiar name: Caruso, I haven’t had time to write or call Robert Caruso to see what his connection is to this Fred Caruso but kind of interesting to me that the WSBA is on a witch hunt for Bob Caruso and it just so happens that a Fred Caruso convicted this woman’s boyfriend but that is another story…

At first I just found these:

1st one makes sense, she’s an attorney/nurse so no big deal…

ADVANCE MEDIATION SERVICES, LLC -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-37-19

So I research & find out she has a business doing guardianships…

ALLIANCE GUARDIANSHIP & PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, PLLC -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-35-27

Then we’ve got Lin O’Dell running a design co with this Plivelich guy

Turns out she has a soft side for horses, that’s a good thing I think ???

EQUINE WELFARE COALITION -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-36-20

Then I see this for something called Whispering Pines, this one really bothers me so I am going to be doing more research on this one which does business with HASCO (Housing Authority of Snohomish County)

Then it seems her & this Plivelich guy are also running a Construction & Design Company

LIN O'DELL (member) -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-14-31

I find her & him listed at the construction company again but now something new: He is one of the owners of something called “Complete Estate Services” which could be most anything but I dig a little deeper…

I then find out that one of these properties came as a sale from one of the people this woman was supposed to be a GAL for, which she got a 208,000.00 property for 15,000.00. There would be many instances where she would be responsible for the sale & disposal of any of her clients assets after they pass away so that is not really odd, I found tons of documents for sales she signed off on but she can NOT sell herself her clients property for 1/13 of it’s value.

These two seem to have quite a few failed companies, & just recently closed down their estate & construction companies…

So what do all of these documents even mean besides that they might be poor business people… Well it means that they are hiding some things behind corporate veils, and as soon as the heat comes down on them they close up shop and just start a new gig.

They are now operating without a business license and she is practicing law in Idaho but she is NOT a member of the Idaho Bar. For some strange reason they closed up shop in May and August of this year on their main two businesses

She is profiting off of the people she is supposed to be protecting, and all over the internet are stories about her draining people’s loved one’s account. She always seem to be in front of the same Judge(s) when she wins in court and shuts people’s families out.

It is going to take me a while to get a hold of the people I have figured out that have been abused by her, 2 folks have agreed to an interview but there are at least 20 more that I know of. The problem is that the families have been so abused and are so terrified that many of them have left the state

The reason she caught my interest is that she is one of the people on the WSBA disciplinary board, but she is like the typical onion in power… layer after layer of questionable crap.

For a very long time she was a nurse, then a hearings examiner for the Washington State Health Board, she also does a lot of guardian work and somewhere in there she became a lawyer who’s shacked up with a killer. So this nurse lawyer guardian ends up on the WSBA disciplinary board? You can’t even make this stuff up. I have tons more documents to lay out but I have much more info to gather as well.

In at least one case, they purchased a home from one of O’Dell’s clients Harry Highland for $15K (valued at $208,000.00).  Harry Highland was a resident at the retirement community. So now we can see all of their business ventures and failures but make no mistake: They did not truly fail and there was plenty of money made but not nearly enough taxes paid on his part

Search Results 2014-11-18 02-09-56but no worries… she got plenty of her client’s money at their disposal and in their control

Search Results 2014-11-18 15-08-22I know there is a lot of info and if you didn’t know something about the rules of professional conduct and different laws you wouldn’t even think about it at all. That is what she is counting on.

Would you want your beloved vulnerable family member in the care of a murderer? How many of these folks even know this, most I’ve contacted so far did not.

She is mostly always in front of the same judge, I am also doing research right now to see how many lawyers have been sanctioned, fined or disbarred that have crossed this woman. Then there is the matter of her connection to Joseph Nappi and his law firm in these matters and there are many.

*** I have received a lot of information but I have not been able to confirm it, until I do I can”t print it but please don’t worry or get discouraged, I am looking and once I get into something I don’t quit til I get to the bottom of it. I know you want your stories told and I know that you are not lying but I have to have documentation to back up what I am saying.

On the surface this looks legit, like business as usual but it is anything but that. I will probably be down for about 3 or 4 days while I go through the documents and the interviews so I can find the common threads.

Washington State Bar Association, to be abolished over felonious conduct

Late last summer, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break a story about the Washington State Bar Association’s dropping the word ” association.”

Our source, an insider close to Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen stated ” the WSBA is trying to come up with a plan to push liability off on Washington State taxpayers, because it’s clear that the Bar is going to lose Scannell v WSBA et al. and Block v WSBA et al. over felonious racketeering and anti-trust violations. ”

We just learned that Washington State Bar  Association has officially voted to drop the word association, in an effort to push liability of 50 Million plus onto Washington State taxpayers, instead of pushing liability to its’ members the above two cases.

In Block’s cases, public records from Snohomish County and the United States Post Office documented that John Pennington ( man who killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides, only suspect in the rape of 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington, and is now working for Pierce College), set up a post office box in Duvall Washington to pass  financial bribes to attorney Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend  Mark Plivilech, while at the same time, John Pennington is the  man, according to the lead detective on a Cowlitz  County case from 1992, the man who is responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl.   Instead of suing Block, John Pennington enlisted his friend Linda Eide, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel, and Washington State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs, to go after Block, a journalist who held a WSBA Bar license, for reporting on John Pennington criminal conduct.

In John Scannell ‘s case, Washington State Bar counsel members Scott Bugsby and Linda Eide tried to gain access into John Scannell’s attorney client files in an effort to go after a Board member’s political foe and Scannell’s client Paul King.

A source said ” The Bar knows that once you two win, you’re coming after them personall to collect damages, starting with members of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel.”


Washington State Bar’s letter to its members

 

IMPORTANT – if you want the WSBA to continue as your professional association, you should attend one or more of three upcoming meetings at the Seattle WSBA offices, discussed more completely below:

  • Public meeting of the WSBA Bylaws Workgroup on August 8
  • Special Meeting of the BOG on Aug 23
  • Regular Meeting of the BOG on Sept 29/30.

I attended the WSBA BOG meeting Friday in Walla Walla, having recently realized (through my work on theSections Policy Workgroup) that the BOG is now starting to implement a comprehensive series of sweeping changes to (i) the WSBA Bylaws, (ii) Court Rule 12.1 and to (iii) the Bar Act.

These changes are being implemented incrementally for tactical reasons, but are designed and intended ultimately to:

  • Substantially reduce the ability of Members to influence WSBA governance – in violation of the Bar Act,
  • Eliminate the WSBA’s role as its “Members” professional association,
  • Wholly and unambiguously convert the WSBA into a public entity/government agency with the singular and exclusive mission of serving the public, and
  • Enhance and expand the scope of the Washington State Supreme Court’s influence and control over all aspects of the WSBA (including setting Member dues), not just matters relating to licensing, regulation, attorney discipline and other such areas.

These changes are part of a longer term and little known Strategic Plan that is the product of these and other key WSBA leaders:

  • Executive Director Paula Littlewood,
  • Immediate Past President Anthony Gipe,
  • President William Hyslop,
  • WSBA General Counsel Jean McElroy

The full scope of the changes and the underlying justifications for them are detailed in:

For your convenience, here’s a link to the Public Materials for the Walla Walla meeting (all 656 pages):

I then identified four of the proposed Bylaw Amendments most concerning to me:

  • First, I strongly objected to changing the name of the WSBA after 128 years to drop the word “Association,” emphasizing that this change is explicitly intended clarifythat the WSBA is not actually a professional association of attorneys. I said I thought most WSBA Members would find this highly objectionable and would be quite surprised to learn that they weren’t really part of a professional association for lawyers.
  • Second, I objected to putting the Washington Supreme Court in charge of determining members’ dues and said I thought others would too.
  • Third, I described the creation of three more appointed Board seats as undemocratic and bad from a governance perspective because appointed seats are subject to abuse by vesting too much power in the hands of too few. [Note: these changes to the BOG composition would also directly violate RCW 2.48.030of the Bar Act regarding the “Board of Governors.” The BOG is arguably illegally constituted currently based on that RCW.]
  • Fourth, I objected to giving limited license practitioners a greatly out-sized percentage of the Board seats relative to their de minimis numbers – i.e., 2 Board seats from a total of fewer than 20 limited license practitioners. [In my view, these folks should have to run within their Districts just like other Bar Members. At best they should be entitled to only a single designated seat.]

A reporter who was present at the Washington State Bar’s meeting said ” I added that I had read through the Governance Task Force Report twice in recent days and that I wasn’t too enamored with it, and that I had found much of its key analysis conclusionary and unpersuasive.”

He further stated “My comments stirred up quite a few folks, including current and former BOG members, several of whom said essentially that these issues had already been debated and discussed for a long time and that it was time to move forward with all of the recommendations in the Governance Report, including the first group of Bylaw Amendments under consideration.  These Governance Report recommendations have strong momentum. One gentleman even said he didn’t necessarily agree with the decisions made but that a lot of time and effort had going into them and it was time to start passing them because folks had done a lot of work and he wanted to see the results. So much for not being pushed into bad decisions by undue focus on sunk costs. ”

 

Mr. Gipe is currently running for King County Superior Court Position #52 – a position that could be the first step on a path to the Washington State Supreme Court, where he could ultimately exercise the control over the WSBA that he currently seeks to vest in that body. I personally feel it is very important to prevent this and thus to keep Mr. Gipe out of the judiciary. That is why I have gone to great lengths to support his opponent in the race. If you share my concerns…. Proposed Policies Eliminating or Restricting Religious (Cultural) Practices During the morning discussion of the WSBA’s proposed restrictions on religious practices, members of the Indian Law Section EC and many others from varied backgrounds advocated strongly that the Indian Law Section should be allowed to continue whatever religious and cultural practices they thought were appropriate, both for reasons of ensuring those who practice
