FEDERAL & STATE INDICTMENTS SOUGHT
Dr. Richard I. Fine, a prominent 70-year-old former U.S. Prosecutor who served in the Department of Justice Anti-Trust Division in Washington D. C., has filed a demand for Grand Jury investigations, naming twenty-two California Judges whom he claims have been obstructing justice in the U. S. and California Courts. The demand was submitted to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, California's A.G. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown, Jr., Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley and U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte, Jr. http://fulldisclosure.net/Documents/AGsGrandJuryInvestigation9-2-10.pdf
OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE
The Demand submitted by Fine cites specific cases where illegal payments to Judges led to obstruction of justice, including one such case where State Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe admitted in court testimony to taking the illegal payments. Fine also cites where Judge Yaffe admitted in his Minute Order on July 13, 2010 that he lied to the higher courts when ruling against him following Fine's petition to the U.S. Supreme Court citing "Fraud Upon the Court"
JUDGE YAFFE RESIGNS
It is believed the unexpected resignation of State Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe a few weeks ago was prompted by both the Richard I Fine case and the Sturgeon vs. County of L.A. case won by the Judicial Watch organization. The November 2008 Sturgeon ruling held the County payments to State Judges were illegal. The California Judicial Council quietly slipped through state legislation (Senate Bill SBx2-11) in February 2009 at the height of the budget crisis attempting to legalize the payments. The questionable law calls for retroactive immunity from criminal and civil prosecution for all California Judges and government officials involved in the scheme.
