Power is the great evil with which we are contending. We have divided power between three branches of government and erected checks and balances to prevent abuse of power. However where is the check on the power of the judiciary? If we fail to check the power of the judiciary, I predict that we will eventually live under judicial tyranny.

Patrick Henry


 

Below is a strategy that I have personally used that works! It takes a lot of work, but if you are willing to put in the time and effort, it will work.

1. You must focus all your energy and attention on one judge, or one lawyer at a time! If you try and take on the entire judicial or legal system they will abuse and misuse their power to destroy you!

2. Begin by researching courthouse trial calendars to locate other litigants who may have been abused by that judge, or that lawyer. In almost every state the court clerk's office will have copies of the court calendars that are publicly accessible. Get the names, case numbers, and other information about the case. Then pull the case files from the courthouse records and dig through there until you find an address or phone number. Then start contacting these individuals. Not all of them will be willing to cooperate, or be locatable, but many will.

3. If your state has a "Public Record Suppression Rule" it will take a little more work to find aggrieved litigants. You must then go to the courthouse, and actually track the opposing attorney's opposition by appearing at hearings or trials where an attorney in question is operating. For a judge, it is easier, but a bit riskier. Judges will abuse their position and take some retribution against you if given any opportunity. But if you are at a point with nothing to lose, it is worthwhile to go to the courtroom and talk to the losing litigants after the hearing.

4. Once you have a critical base of support, no less than four people, and preferably seven or eight who have been wronged by the same attorney or judge, start reviewing the judicial cannons, ethics rules, and the law. File sworn affidavits from each of the people who have been wronged about the corruption of that attorney or judge. Also, you should include a cover letter with the affidavits that you are following the procedure but have no faith that the disciplinary organizations will do anything at all about them.

5. Once those sworn affidavits are filed with the grievance boards, file a motion to have the judge or attorney removed from the case for cause. Include copies of the affidavits that have been filed as support for why they should be removed. In doing this, the affidavits become public record for a legitimate purpose that makes a lawsuit against you by an opposing attorney for some form of "defamation" (for telling the truth no less) actionable under your states sanction rules, or in Federal Court under Rule 11, for being frivolous and harassing.

6. File another complaint with the state bar association, as well as the ethics board. Attorneys typically believe, with considerable justification, that the state bar association is so stupid, or so corrupt, or so blind that they won't do anything about an attorney's frivolous and harassing use of the legal system to silence you by filing a suit against you.

7. If action is taken against you by the judge or a lawsuit filed by the attorney, file an Addendum to the previous Motion to remove for cause including the new Complaint. You will also want to note in these Motions (preemptively) that the lawyer or court in question is likely try to take action against you to undermine your First Amendment rights to free speech, and no less than truthful and verifiable statements.

8. Now comes the fun part. Take a copy of your motion(s), along with all of the affidavits, and put a cover letter over the front titled "Redress of Grievance." In this letter, you state that you have followed all of the procedures proscribed under the law but have no evidence to suggest or belief that the organizations tasked with correcting wrongs through the legal process will provide adequate or appropriate remedies for your complaint. Insist that you believe the state organizations in question are hiding corruption within the legal system in your state. Then send copies to: (a) All of your state legislators (along with a Petition for Impeachment if it is a judge); (b) Take copies personally (all who have filed them as a group if possible) to the local newspaper and TV stations; (c) Send copies along with a cover letter to all of the following: State Investigative Organization, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Administrative Office of the Courts, and finally, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and with the DOJ submission, demand a full record audit for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circular compliance.

9. If it is a court in question insist that their funding be suspended, or at the very least closely monitored during the audit. As a taxpayer demand that their funding be suspended or completely eliminated if there are any irregularities. Note that OMB or other Grant Fund Audits dictate that all illegal conduct is reason to suspend or eliminate funding.

Note: Expect your legislators to "backpedal" on the issue of holding judges accountable. Do some research and find violations of Constitutional rights of litigants by the judge or lawyer. When your legislator tells you that they "can't do anything," send them a letter notifying them that they took an oath to uphold the Constitutions of the United States and your State, and that they seem to be refusing to do so.

10. File another Affidavit into the record about your activities, making it very clear that you are just beginning to fight to expose the corruption and that nothing short of death will stop you from publicly pursuing your Constitutional right to Redress of Grievance.

11. Go back to the media and insist that they do an investigation — after this much work and as long as it not frivolous in nature , and if it is well documented, you will likely find a newspaper, radio, or TV program that will run a story. Depending on what your investigation has uncovered, you may have better luck attracting notice with small weekly or local newspapers, TV, and radio stations. Often the major media outlets simply follow the party line.

Above all else, be persistent!

• Keep fighting back and networking with other local groups with similar interests.

• Share your ideas, findings, and progress with everyone who will listen.

• Post your findings on Web sites.

• Help other groups.

• Be willing to accept defeats and setbacks.

• Encourage review and critiques of what you are doing.

• Accept the fact that you don't have all the answers.

• Seek ideas and suggestions from others.

This is a lot of work, but it has been done and it does work!

Once you take out one judge, or one lawyer, then go after the next. But do not get sidetracked or distracted from destroying one judge's or one lawyer's career at a time. Remember they are destroying families and other people every day the same way they have attempted to destroy you.

If you do this, you and your group will quickly get a reputation and no attorney or judge will want to have you get them in your sights. Also, you can be guaranteed that if somehow this judge or lawyer manages to escape all of this with their hides intact, any advancement in their career is over.
