THE EVOLUTION OF JUDICIAL TYRANNY IN THE UNITED STATES:
"If the judges interpret the laws themselves, and suffer none else to interpret, they may easily make, of the laws, [a shredded] shipman's hose!" - King James I of England, around 1616.
“No class of the community ought to be allowed freer scope in the expression or publication of opinions as to the capacity, impartiality or integrity of judges than members of the bar. They have the best opportunities of observing and forming a correct judgment. They are in constant attendance on the courts. Hundreds of those who are called on to vote never enter a court-house, or if they do, it is only at intervals as jurors, witnesses or parties. To say that an attorney can only act or speak on this subject under liability to be called to account and to be deprived of his profession and livelihood by the very judge or judges whom he may consider it his duty to attack and expose, is a position too monstrous to be entertained for a moment under our present system,” Justice Sharwood in Ex Parte Steinman and Hensel, 95 Pa 220, 238-39 (1880).
“This case illustrates to me the serious consequences to the Bar itself of not affording the full protections of the First Amendment to its applicants for admission. For this record shows that [the rejected attorney candidate] has many of the qualities that are needed in the American Bar. It shows not only that [the rejected attorney candidate] has followed a high moral, ethical and patriotic course in all of the activities of his life, but also that he combines these more common virtues with the uncommon virtue of courage to stand by his principles at any cost.
It is such men as these who have most greatly honored the profession of the law. The legal profession will lose much of its nobility and its glory if it is not constantly replenished with lawyers like these. To force the Bar to become a group of thoroughly orthodox, time-serving, government-fearing individuals is to humiliate and degrade it.” In Re Anastaplo, 18 Ill. 2d 182, 163 N.E.2d 429 (1959), cert. granted, 362 U.S. 968 (1960), affirmed over strong dissent, 366 U.S. 82 (1961), Justice Black, Chief Justice Douglas and Justice Brennan, dissenting.
" I do not believe that the practice of law is a "privilege" which empowers Government to deny lawyers their constitutional rights. The mere fact that a lawyer has important responsibilities in society does not require or even permit the State to deprive him of those protections of freedom set out in the Bill of Rights for the precise purpose of insuring the independence of the individual against the Government and those acting for the Government”. Lathrop v Donohue, 367 US 820 (1961), Justice Black, dissenting.
"The legal profession must take great care not to emulate the many occupational groups that have managed to convert licensure from a sharp weapon of public defense into blunt instrument of self-enrichment". Walter Gellhorn, "The Abuse of Occupational Licensing", University of Chicago Law Review, Volume 44 Issue 1, September of 1976.
“Because the law requires that judges no matter how corrupt, who do not act in the clear absence of jurisdiction while performing a judicial act, are immune from suit, former Judge Ciavarella will escape liability for the vast majority of his conduct in this action. This is, to be sure, against the popular will, but it is the very oath which he is alleged to have so indecently, cavalierly, baselessly and willfully violated for personal gain that requires this Court to find him immune from suit”, District Judge A. Richard Caputo in H.T., et al, v. Ciavarella, Jr, et al, Case No. 3:09-cv-00286-ARC in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, Document 336, page 18, November 20, 2009. This is about judges who were sentencing kids to juvenile detention for kickbacks.

New documents were filed in my disciplinary case showing prosecutorial and referee misconduct and fabrication of transcripts
Yesterday I did not appear in the purported criminal proceeding fabricated against me by Mary Gasparini, attorney representing the Attorney Grievance Committee who was disgruntled that I sued her for fraud and fraud upon the court.
The proceeding was unlawful, but I had a pattern where that same court granted whatever Mary Gasparini wished, no matter how unlawful, and, therefore, had no trust in the integrity of that court or New York State judicial system as a whole.
Moreover, in the event (no matter how impossible under the current law) that the 4th Department would arbitrarily abuse its power, as it always does with me, and would decide to put me in jail for 30 days (as Mary Gasparini asked) for VIOLATING MY OWN PRIVACY and for TALKING ON THIS BLOG ABOUT MY OWN DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDINGS and about PROSECUTORIAL AND JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT in those proceedings, I did not want to run any risk of "accidentally" dying in jail "of natural causes".
So, naturally, I did not appear personally (nor did I have to, by law), but instead I filed a Memorandum of Law in opposition to the legality of the criminal proceedings.
I also filed today a motion to disaffirm whatever the "referee" could have filed with the disciplinary court without providing to me the court-ordered hearing, and on the basis of two fabricated transcripts and one "Decision" that the referee made, without authority, and without any evidentiary hearings (that he was ordered to conduct).
Both of these documents will be posted today or tomorrow in one of the Facebook groups dealing with court reforms, and links to the group will be provided herein.
Since fabrication of court transcripts is a serious matter of public concern, I will use all available legal remedies to make sure the appropriate authorities learn about such fabrication and take appropriate action.
One thing that people who participate in fabrication of charges against me, fabrication of documents against me, including court records, and opening of safari in courts against me and my husband - I am tenacious.
I did, am doing and will continue to be doing thorough investigation and research of what is going on and will not relent until people involved in abuse of power and political persecution against me and my husband will be brought to justice by appropriate authorities.
