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.

Judge Lebous: the Neronis should pay the fraudsters' attorney fees for "invasion of privacy" of the late judge Robert Harlem and his co-conspirators in fraud, for referencing public records of that fraud in court papers
Judge Ferris Lebous continues the legacy of the soon-to-be-retired Judge Becker by imposing attorney's fees, in the amounts of thousands of dollars, with a severely restricted deadline for paying them, for "frivolous conduct" consisting of violation of privacy of public officials by exposing their misconduct by referencing public records (open court records and records about their position and salary, also publicly available) in court proceedings.
Neither Judge Lebous nor Judge Becker paid any attention to the fact that such conduct is perfectly legal.
As to both Judge Lebous and Judge Becker there are documents showing that there were ex parte communications with their "chambers" by Richard Harlem's attorney for lengthy time and without any explanation, before the decisions imposing sanctions and/or attorney's fees were made.
It is obvious that, for Judge Lebous, it does not matter that he is imposing sanctions upon us for lawful conduct - as long as he imposes sanctions upon us, because my husband exposed Judge Lebous' ex parte communications with Richard Harem's attorney, and we are thus enemies of Judge Lebous that must be punished no matter what.
I definitely refuse to be used as an ATM machine for Richard Harlem and his crew, especially because one of the Mokay clients of Richard Harlem has recently came clean and undid the whole Mokay litigation, after the ex parte secret bench trial, and exposed the Mokay litigation (based on which Lebous imposed the sanctions) for the major fraud that it is - with just one sworn statement, posted here.
