"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.

#FraudsterAttorneyWoodruffCarroll "lacks a filter" - and continues to stalk and harass the clients who fired him with pleas for false affidavits

I wrote the day before yesterday and yesterday (morning) about the criminal efforts of attorney out of Syracuse, New York, #WoodruffCarroll, to have clients who fired him for misconduct to sign fraudulent affidavits against me and a settlement agreement that they do not want - they want to proceed to trial.

Yesterday night I received yet another call from a witness stating to me that Mr. Carroll continues to stalk and harass people who fired him for misconduct, and continues to solicit false affidavits from him - as well as continues to lie to them.

The witness (one of Mr. Carroll's now former clients, though he refuses to withdraw from the case despite having been fired) told me the following:

1) even though the day before yesterday, Mr. Carroll left their residence with the words that he will come back the next day, he was told not to come because he is not welcome, he is fired, they will not be at home and the door will be locked - so the plaintiffs in the Argro v Osborne case (against Chenango County CPS) did not expect him to actually come back, trespass on their property and harass them again;  after all, Mr. Carroll is an attorney with 32 years of experience and must know better than to repeatedly break the law;

2) nevertheless, the door to the residence was locked;

3) nevertheless, yesterday, in the morning and afternoon, there were knocks on their door, which they did not answer;

4) by the evening, the knocks stopped;

5) after waiting for a couple of hours after the last knock, and seeing no cars parked around the house, the besieged plaintiffs opened the door; 

6) as soon as the plaintiffs opened the door, Mr. Carroll materialized and helped himself into their residence despite the plaintiffs' protests;

7) Mr. Carroll came with three "brown envelopes" containing, each, a settlement agreement and a draft of an affidavit against me - both documents that the plaintiffs refused to sign the previous day, even for $100,000 offered by Mr. Carroll in exchange of signing those documents with pleas that otherwise he will lose his law license;

8) Mr. Carroll added to that plea yesterday another plea - that if they do not sign, Mr. Carroll's sick sister will get sicker.  Plaintiffs reportedly firmly told Mr. Carroll that if his sister is sick, signing false affidavits won't make her better.  Of course, an attorney's sister's sickness has nothing to do with the case, nor should the attorney notify his sick sister of what is happening in every litigation he is handling.

9) Also, Mr. Carroll claimed to plaintiffs that if they do not sign what he brought, and if he does not present the signed documents to the court until May 31, 2016, plaintiff's lawsuit against Chenango County CPS litigated since 2012, will be dismissed.

That was a lie.

In fact, the deadline of May 31, 2016 was set by the court for other purposes, of which Mr. Carroll was supposed to tell his clients, but instead decided - as he often does - to lie to them.

Here is why the May 31, 2016 deadline (docket 14) was set by the court:

The order clearly directs Mr. Carroll not to do one thing, that he was requesting (filing a cross-motion) and instead to do two other things:

1) "notify the Court immediately" "if in fact the case is not settled" - that was on May 17, 2016, Mr. Carroll did not notify the court until now, I checked on Pacer;  Mr. Carroll told the plaintiffs that he is holding back notification of the court about the settlement hoping that they will change their minds;

2) file a stipulation of settlement by May 31, 2016 - and if that is not done by that date, "the Court will schedule a trial", not dismiss a case.

Of course, it may be that Mr. Carroll does not know how to try a case - or that the defendants, in whose real employ Mr. Carroll appears to be - pay him handsomely to keep the case from reaching the trial, and are now upset that he screwed up, causing him to camp out 80 miles away from his home and office in Syracuse, NY, on two consecutive days so far.

In fact, Mr. Carroll told the plaintiffs that he will come again today to try to coerce them "to change their minds", and will continue to come every day! until they "change their minds" - until May 31, 2016.

Apparently, Mr. Carroll is not afraid of being arrested for:

1) stalking;
2) trespass - two times now;
3) tampering with a witness;
4) burglary - two counts now (in New York, burglary is "breaking and entering into the residence at night in order to commit a crime within",  Mr. Carroll entered plaintiffs' residence without their consent on two consecutive nights with an obvious intent to commit a crime within of solicitation of perjury, fraud and fraud upon the court).

I got interested as to why Mr. Carroll feel himself to be so immune from prosecution - what kind of connections he has to be so obnoxious and brazen.

Here is what I found.

In 2013 Mr. Carroll ran for office - for a legislative seat in Onondaga County, New York, 17th district.

Mr. Carroll ran on a Republican ticket.  Other two prominent republicans in that area are: (1) the famous in his misconduct Judge James Tormey and (2) Judge Tormey's friend and law school classmate, the local District Attorney William Fitzpatrick who only turned in a judge-pedophile when that particular judge refused to buy William Fitzpatrick off, I wrote about that on my blog.

During his election campaign, local newspapers disclosed some interesting information about Mr. Carroll:

So, Mr. Carroll is from a "local Republican party", and was endorsed to run by the local Republican party - the party where the local District Attorney and the Chief Administrative judge overseeing the entire 5th Judicial District are only members.

It is interesting that Mr. Carroll's incompetence as a civil rights attorney came through information in his election campaign, too.

In his election campaign, his two area of specialty in litigation are announced as:

  • products liability, and
  • bankruptcy - not civil rights litigation.
In an attorney review on the Internet, Mr. Carroll is also portrayed as an immigration attorney:

On the website of his law firm Carroll & Carroll, P.C. Mr. Carroll is portrayed as a securities attorney.

  • securities
  • immigration
  • products liability
  • bankruptcy

Not civil rights litigation.  So, when Mr. Carroll announced to plaintiffs that he had vast experience in civil rights litigation (while at this time he is deathly afraid to proceed to trial and engages in criminal conduct to remain on the case and not to proceed to trial), and when he claimed a $500/hr legal fee as a pre-eminent expert in the field of civil rights litigation, that was obviously, also a lie.

Information disclosed during Mr. Carroll's election campaign also reflects interesting "community experience":

Climbers Access Coalition - Mr. Carroll is a mountain climber, or at least he was a mountain climber in his youth.

His portray on his election campaign Facebook page shows him as quite chubby - I doubt he climbs mountains now.

And here's "Woody"'s family, as described in his election campaign:

Mr. Carroll's listed family members are:

Sister Nancy Carroll Butler, a Baptist Minister who, according to her own disclosure, has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis - it is in her name that Mr. Carroll begged plaintiffs yesterday to sign false affidavits against me, so that he would not lose his law license.

I wonder whether Minister Carroll Butler even knows of her brother's pleas on her behalf, but somehow I highly doubt a minister would approve commission of a crime in her name.

Sister Jennifer Carroll Archie, a securities lawyer at the mammoth law firm Latham Watkins that recently embraced the former Chief Judge of the State of New York Jonathan Lippman.

I wonder whether the fact that the judiciary is bending over backwards for "Woody" Carroll no matter what crimes he commits is because of his prominent sister, a partner of Latham Watkins in Washington, D.C. and allegedly one of the "nation's top data protection attorneys".

Doctor of clinical psychology Susanne Carroll Duffy (not Archie, the "seminars by the sea" website cited in the family information on "Woody" gives his sister's correct last name),

 a clinical psychologist out of Eastport Maine obviously working together with social services to treat traumatized children by playing with them - possibly, that's why CPS was so comfortable giving the job of killing the lawsuit to a brother of a child abuse therapist? 

It is highly unlikely that loving brother "Woody" Carroll would be willing to damage sister's thriving "traumatized child therapy by playing in the sandbox" business 

by going aggressively after CPS in another state and thus jeopardizing lucrative referrals of children to his sister in her home state of Maine.

By the way, THIS was shown at one of the "by the sea" seminars of "Woody"'s psychologist sister as a THERAPY point for children, for the story to be told in a sandbox.

Apparently, not only "Woody" has problems with ... let's say, adequately perceiving reality.

I would not allow my child near this woman - this YouTube video can traumatize rather than help by showing a large bird struggling in the water, and then appearing from the water with a large piece of red-looking piece, it's apparently fish that the eagle is going to kill or feed to his children while still alive.

Children will not be sleeping after this "therapeutic session" and will need Dr Duffy's, or her shrink colleagues', services for life.

Great "play therapy".  One really needs to be a licensed Doctor of Psychology and a certified play therapist ("certified" is a good word though) to invent this crap.

The last family member described in "Woody" Carroll's election campaign is, I understand, 

brother Jonathan Carroll, a "semi-retired businessman" and a "former owner" of Boxer Craft, Inc.

Jon Carroll, as of today, still lists himself on his LinkedIn profile as "founder" of Boxer Craft Inc., a large clothing manufacturer

So - nobody puts Woody in the corner, Woody the brother of:

  • a Baptist Minister;
  • a Latham Watkins law partner, employing and serving many powerful people of this country (LW is reportedly the "highest grossing law firm in the world");
  • a "traumatized children" therapist,  who must necessarily have good connections with CPS for her business to thrive, and of
  • a millionaire corporate businessman who can finance election campaigns of many judges and their relatives - or their opponents, if his little brother's little feelings are hurt by those judges or their relatives.

Quite a bouquet of family members to keep judges in check and prevent them from disciplining "Woody" no matter what he does.

Actually, during that election campaign of 2013, it was mentioned in a newspaper - politely - that "Woody" "lacks a filter".

Once again, Carroll, a lawyer, an officer of the court, a "community server" in "rescue missions" and a member of an "international evangelic friendship" religion, a religion that is reportedly preaching that every person is in need of salvation, offered this kind of soothing words of "salvation" in a community where "tensions :

causing people to choose his opponent in elections:

But - "roughing up" the poor "to get 'em motivated" rings a bell.

That's what "Woody" is doing with the indigent plaintiffs - what with his $500/hr rates for doing nothing and for committing fraud and fraud upon the court, what with his harassment, trespassing and continues coercion of plaintiffs, where:

1) all of the three plaintiffs are not wealthy;
2) two of the three plaintiffs are elderly; and
3) one of the three plaintiffs is extremely elderly and disabled.

I guess, "Woody" remembers to mention his disabled sister who would allegedly suffer if plaintiffs do not sign false affidavits against me which are meant to save "Woody" from attorney disciplinary action, criminal prosecution and a lawsuit for fraud and fraud upon the court.

Yet, "Woody" does not seem to care that one of the people he is subjecting to the extreme stress of being made a hostage in her own house is an elderly and disabled individual who he is supposed to help, not hurt.

I will report whether "Woody" will barge again today into the house of his victims who already fired him for misconduct, and on consecutive days.

Stay tuned.
