OCALA, Fla., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, and a former Justice Department prosecutor, has filed suit in U.S. District Court for Middle District of Florida (Ocala Division) (Case No. 5:13-cv-267-oc-10-PRL) against Cleveland family court magistrate Lawrence Loeb, alleging hate-filled religious and other forms of discrimination and dishonesty.
As set forth in the complaint requesting $3 million in damages, Klayman alleges Loeb issued false findings of fact and viciously portrayed Klayman derogatorily to harm his personal reputation and career as an activist attorney and religious conservative. In an unprecedented 93-page single-spaced opinion, which reads like an ad hominem attack, it alleged Loeb mocked and belittled Klayman's religious beliefs as a Jew who believes in Jesus Christ, and made a false finding that Klayman had "inappropriately touched one of his children," when in fact Cleveland Department of Children and Families and the local district attorney had investigated these false charges by Klayman's ex-wife and found no such incident had occurred. Moreover, Klayman had voluntarily taken a polygraph test and passed, while his ex-wife refused to. The false charges are alleged to have conveniently been made by Klayman's ex-wife after Klayman had filed a custody petition.
As documented in the complaint, false charges of child sexual abuse have become rampant in family court proceedings, as they're used tactically by sleazy family lawyers and their clients. Despite this, as alleged by Klayman, Loeb, who is a liberal Democrat and a Jew, took it upon himself to smear Klayman, viewing Klayman as in effect a "Jew for Jesus" and a political conservative to boot, for which he took extreme offense. Importantly, it's also alleged Loeb sought to make his malicious false findings knowing that Klayman adversaries would use them to destroy him in the media.
"In the corrupt and incestuous world of family law courts, where sleazy divorce lawyers, judges, magistrates and guardians ad litem feed at the trough of broken families, it's high time they be held personally accountable for their actions, as too many lives are being destroyed. I sued Loeb not just for my children and me, but for all families who've been victimized in family courts by persons like him," stated Klayman.
