WASHINGTON, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Emmy Award Winners Ed Asner and Leslie Dutton of the Full Disclosure Network present the documentary feature, "Corrupted Justice," the incredible true story of corruption plaguing the California judiciary. The documentary details the illegal "double benefits" to California judges, who took hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars while public employee benefits remained unfunded, state employees were furloughed and workers compensation benefits were slashed.

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger unwittingly becomes a focal point in the documentary for his role in facilitating secret legislation in a Special Budget Session, where he approved retroactive criminal immunity from prosecution for all California judges and elected officials who were involved in taking and giving illegal payments. The film further illustrates the judges' disdain of court rulings, public opinion and judicial ethics, related to the illegal payments, amidst the backdrop of public outrage over public pension defaults nationwide.
Featured in the documentary are elected officials who along with Governor Schwarzenegger have kept the public from learning about the "double benefits" that unfairly benefited California judges. That includes former Senator Darrell Steinberg, former Attorney General Jerry Brown, and current Attorney General Kamala Harris. The "Corrupted Justice" Documentary reveals to taxpayers and the international community the innermost workings of the American Judiciary and governmental process. Court insiders and prominent attorneys provide unprecedented insight on procedures normally shrouded in secrecy. In a most glaring example of unconstitutional behavior, the film reveals the retaliation used against those who dare to challenge the judiciary.
