The U.S has an epidemic of corruption, which has led to economic decline,and social unrest.For all appearances it is emanating from the Judicial Branch, the part of the government that is expected to have the most integrity. It is no longer just conjecture – as citizen complaints of racketeering and misconduct by members of the Judiciary are rampant across social media. The most difficult part of the situation is that those that are guilty of abusing their power, are in control of addressing these complaints…..

Judge admits to secret communication with attorney about custody order / Fox 54 WXFG

Fox 54 Investigates: Courts and custody battles

WFXG FOX54 reporter Nick Lulli is digging deeper into the family court system of the Augusta judicial circuit.MORE
First, the Georgia appeals court said that judge misinterpreted law when he denied a Columbia County mother custody. Then, he said he would consider removing himself from the case because the mother’s attorney said he was biased against her.

But, according to court records Judge Daniel “Danny” Craig didn’t do that; instead, he suspended all visitation rights of the mom in addition to admitting to secret communications outside the courtroom with the dad’s attorney, which allowed the father to arrange the kids’ removal from the state. Plus, the two independent custody experts on the case said the mom posed no danger to the children.

Julia Bloodworth, the most recent guardian ad litem on the case, who has two decades worth of experience with children, in an affidavit said the judge coordinated his plans with the father’s attorney to remove the children from Augusta, without the mom, the guardian, or her attorney even knowing the kids were gone from school.

The Columbia County mother is revealing her face because she wants the community to understand what she calls injustice.

In a September order, Judge Craig said her children’s expression of being “afraid and concerned” to live with their mom was “comparatively profound.”

But Judge Craig never presented any evidence in his order of physical or emotional abuse, and the guardian ad litem said she never saw any either.

“No, no, I was not abusing our children,” said the mother. “We had a guardian ad litem. She says in her affidavit she spent more time working with our family then any other in her two decades of experience, and there was no concern by her.”

Days after the the most recent order, guardian Julia Bloodworth filed an affidavit with the court.

In it – she said, “In all of my conversations with them, including many phone calls with [the son], neither of the children ever acted or sounded as if they were afraid of their mother or concerned for their personal welfare at their mother’s home.” In addition, Bloodworth said it may have been the father who was “manipulating” them through the use of parental alienation – allegations the father’s attorney denies.

Bloodworth said she wasn’t involved in the drafting of the order at all, which she feels, may go against her contract and order written and signed by the very same judge.

“The guardian who knew our family wasn’t allowed to speak,” said the mother. “She wasn’t heard. And that was the whole point of her being assigned to our case.”

In the order, Judge Craig admits to calling one of the the father’s three attorney days before the order was issued to make sure the father would be in Augusta for the execution of the order, which would allow him to move the children to Ohio, denying the mom a hearing that’s required under Georgia law.

I asked the mom, “the guardian ad litem didn’t know? You didn’t know? Only your ex-husband’s attorneys?”

“And Judge Danny Craig,” said mom said.

But Judge Craig signed a certificate of service swearing he’d served all parties with his order before filing it with the clerk’s office. The clerk’s office time stamp shows it being clocked in at 11:50 in the morning, while Judge Craig’s fax time stamp shows it didn’t get sent to the mom’s attorney until nearly three and a half hours later.

“Our children were already gone out of school, before my attorney was notified,” said the mother. “We didn’t know. We were the last to know.”

That’s right: the mom sent her kids to school, and she didn’t know they were gone until they didn’t get off the school bus.

“[I am] stunned, even though so much has happened that didn’t seem right,” the mother said. “It’s still shocking that it was this blatant.”

Judge Craig said he can’t comment on this case because it’s an active case.

But one of the attorney’s for the surgeon ex-husband did agree to speak on the case during an on the record meeting at her Augusta law firm.

Barbara Barnett ‘Bobi’ Claridge disagrees with the assertion her behavior is considered improper because during the phone call the judge only said:

“Have your client here on a date certain; tell me what that day is.”

Claridge said she was not aware the judge didn’t make the same phone call to the mom’s attorney.

“I do not know if he did or did not relate that information to Ms. Portnoy,” said Claridge.

I then asked if she knew the children were gone before the mom’s side even knew; Claridge said she did.

“I was aware the order was issued, my client was told to pick them, and did so,” said Claridge.

Upon further investigation into this case, we found in court documents that a previous psychologist guardian also hired by Judge Craig to determine custody for the same children in this case also recommended the children remain in the mother’s care.

According to the final divorce order in that case, Judge Craig also “found” that there was no evidence in favor of the mom, thereby totally denying the existence of that psychologist which he had appointed.

California Appellate Court Judge Vance Raye Implicated in Alleged Federal Racketeering Scheme

A Sacramento Superior Court watchdog group has posted online court records and other documents which they allege detail a racketeering enterprise operating in the local court system. Using court filings, court reporter transcripts, public records and other documentary evidence, members of the group say they have reverse engineered the structure and players of the scheme.

“This package of evidence was compiled over four years, and includes records dating back ten years,” said Ulf Carlsson, the spokesperson for the group. “Judges, court employees and lawyers involved in this criminal enterprise have been able to conceal it for a long time.”

The group asserts that the documents show the scheme began in 1991 when two judges, Peter McBrien and Vance Raye, restructured the family court system with attorneys from the Sacramento Bar Association Family Law Section. The conspiracy has expanded and been ongoing since that time, according to the whistleblowers. Judge Vance Raye has since been elevated to the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento, and continues to assist the organization when cases involving the enterprise reach the appellate court level.

The goal of the judge-attorney partnership is to significantly reduce the caseload and administrative duties of full-time judges by effectively privatizing the Sacramento Family Court settlement conference program, according to the whistleblowers. The attorneys agreed to take over and run the program in exchange for kickbacks in the form of preferential treatment from judges when they appear in court representing clients.

“The attorneys ostensibly act as volunteers,” said Carlsson. “But we have documented that the lawyers are in fact compensated with illegal kickbacks in the form of ‘rubber-stamped’ rulings and court orders for their clients, in addition to other perks.”

In order to run the settlement conference program, the attorneys are designated as “judge pro tems,” or temporary judges. In operating the settlement program, the lawyers reportedly use heavy-handed, unethical tactics to coerce couples going through a divorce to reach a settlement. When they do, the case is terminated and no further court hearings are required, significantly reducing the workload of full-time, state employed judges.

“The coerced settlements often result in an unequal division of community property, one-sided child custody arrangements, and unfair child and spousal support payment terms that don’t comply with state law,” Carlsson explained.

“In many cases, only one side has an attorney – who is a member of what we refer to as the ‘cartel’ – while the other side can’t afford a lawyer and is self-represented. These cases are where the one-sided outcomes are the most severe,” Carlsson said. “You have someone going through a traumatic divorce without a lawyer facing off against a spouse represented by a veteran family law attorney. On top of that, the party without a lawyer is forced into a settlement conference run by a judge pro tem lawyer who often is a personal friend of the other attorney. As we’ve now documented, the outcome of these rigged settlement conferences is not fair, ethical, or legal. The conflicts of interest are required by state law to be disclosed, but never are.”

The alleged criminal enterprise deprives the public of the federally protected right to honest government services, a crime under 18 USC 1346, includes predicate acts of mail and wire fraud, and thereby constitutes a RICO racketeering enterprise under federal criminal law (18 USC 1962), according to the watchdog group.

Carlsson said the judge-attorney collusion also violates a number of state laws as well. “The scheme results in unjust enrichment for the judge pro tem attorneys, constitutes unfair business practices, and implicates antitrust laws,” Carlsson asserted. “Due to their consistent, virtually perfect success rate in obtaining favorable outcomes in court proceedings, the temporary judge lawyers have achieved a significant monopoly on the family law and divorce business in the greater-Sacramento area.”
