Sonya Sotomayor did not recuse from deciding whether to grant or deny certiorari to Eric Schneiderman whose assistant may have privately met with her as member of the faculty of the Albany Law School after she was granted by that school an all-expenses-paid trip and an award.
That discrimination was further deepened by a state #judgeShirleyKornrich who further expanded the definition of what the physical office required of out-of-state attorneys should mean, and struck pleadings as filed by an out-of-state attorney without a REAL physical office.
After "winning" that case, obviously through corruption, New York Attorney General has announced that he is now protecting New Yorkers, and federal taxpayers, from a huge threat - from unlicensed dentists working under the supervision of two licensed dentists.
And, New York AG claims that criminal prosecution of those scoundrels is required because they allegedly defrauded Medicaid by billing for work of unlicensed dentists - who allegedly did various dentist procedures, including drilling and filling of cavities.
Here is the NY AG press release.
Of course, based on the press release, anybody who dons a medical scrub and looks into another person's mouth can be accused of a felony, unlicensed practice of dentistry.
And, what the ardent protector of the public the New York State AG (who habitually defends public officials sued for violations of New Yorkers' constitutional rights, but that's ok, that does not contradict the AG's stance as a human rights and public safety protector) does not disclose to the public is:
- whether those unlicensed dentists, not licensed in the State of New York, but obviously having medical diplomas from Russia and Uzbekistan (where qualifications of dentists are not lower than in this country) actually provided good quality of services, and whether they did any harm to any consumers of their services - and that is the key to the question whether Medicaid was defrauded.
- it was drafted by an unlicensed real estate firm; and because
- it was not drafted by a licensed attorney, thus constituting unauthorized practice of law.
- through his law clerk, also a subpoenaed witness at the trial, threatened to arrest me and force me to appear in court despite medical leave based on injury;
- dismissed the jury;
- quashed his own subpoena;
- held a closed-door trial instead of adjournment because of documented medical leave of defendant's counsel,
- accepted evidence by boxes without looking at them, then
- blocked access to that already admitted evidence by the appellant, see also here;
- gave away that evidence before the appeal was complete and thus
- helped the Appellate Division to dismiss the Mokay appeal without review on the merits because the appellant - naturally - could not provide a complete record on appeal because he was not allowed to see a large portion of the record and because Dowd caused that portion of the record to disappear from the court custody -
- an unlicensed paralegal billed by a lawyer who did not supervise the paralegal's drafting of legal pleadings; and
- individuals who had no law license and no real estate license
- Chenango County Supreme Court, Gjonaj v Sines and Demeree Realty, #JudgeKevinDowd;
- NYS Supreme Court, Appellate Division 3rd Judicial Department, Gjonaj v Sines;
- Delaware County Supreme Court, Mokay v Mokay, Judge Kevin Dowd.
- Did the unlicensed dentists - and the two licensed dentists in whose office they allegedly worked - actually provided good services to the public? At affordable prices? Thus protecting public health where their clients would otherwise have gone without any dental care?
- Does New York have a right to create double standards in occupational licensing, not prosecuting and even endorsing unlicensed paralegals and their employers, licensed attorneys, for engaging in unauthorized practice of law (as demonstrated in the Mokay v Mokay case), and endorsing unauthorized practice of law and unauthorized practice of real estate profession, as demonstrated in Gjonaj v Sines and Demeree Realty v Sines cases - but somehow deciding to prosecute unlicensed dentists working under the umbrella of licensed dentists - the very same thing as the unlicensed paralegal did, practicing law under the umbrella of licensed attorney and son of a judge #RichardHarlem, of Oneonta, NY, who charged LEGAL fees for unsupervised drafting of an unlicensed paralegal?
- And, is the unlicensed dentists criminal case actually a good case for jury nullification?
