McGeorge School of Law / Dean Elizabeth Parker Under Extreme Scrutiny in Connection with Sham Charity “CaliforniaALL”

The Sacramento based McGeorge School of Law as well Dean Elizabeth Parker are under extreme scrutiny in matters relating to CaliforniaALL, The Leslie Brodie Report has learned.

CaliforniaALL, a 501(c)(3) charitable entity, was the brainchild of Ruthe Ashley (a Diversity Officer at CalPERS and Vice-President of the State Bar of California), Visiting Professor Sarah E. Redfield,  and Peter Arth Jr., Chief of Staff to CPUC President Michael Peevey.

In its brief existence from 2008 to 2010, CaliforniaALL collected close to $2 million from utility companies (AT&T, PG&E, Verizon, Sempra), including a sub-rosa contribution of $769,247.00 from the State Bar of California Foundation (DBA California Bar Foundation.)

CaliforniaALL was housed at the Sacramento offices of DLA Piper (where Mr. Gilles Attia serves as the managing partner) and was abruptly dissolved in June of 2010.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation, speaking on condition of anonymity, maintain a red flag has been raised over the law school and its dean due to the overall circumstances surrounding Ruthe Ashley, Sarah Redfield, Robert Hawley, and Gilles Attia.  All past or present employees of the McGeorge School of Law.

“As the main wrongdoers were already indetified, the inquiry is being conducted nontheless due to the high number of actors with connection to the school,” a source stated. 

 “Issues such as respondeant superior, or whether or not some of the actors acted within the course and scope of their employment must be examined,” the source continued.

“As both McGeorge School of Law and the University of New Hempshire School of Law gained financialy from the efforts and reputation of Professor Redfield, they must forfiet any gain if any unlawful conduct took place,” the source concluded.

  • AOC: You expected our reports to be useful? Pass a law that says so. 2014/04/14
    It’s disturbing that this piece of legislation is even necessary. But it is necessary because the AOC wishes to hide the financial ball to whatever degree they can get away with. AB1773 (Allen) deals with the public contracts and the courts. Among other things, it requires that the AOC present their reports in an electronic […]

    The Chief Justice made a startling statement in a recent television interview: “General funds support for the third branch of government has failed. It’s absolutely a skeleton of what it used to be.” Her remarks stand in stark contrast with those of her predecessor in a speech he gave back in 2009: “It was anticipated […]

    “Do you have anything to add?” We’re going a bit off the reservation today because we think it is important that Courthouse News gets a new judge to hear their case. As has been widely reported, the ninth circuit reversed a decision to dismiss a lawsuit against Michael Planet of the Ventura County Courts for […]

  • Auditable: Your revenue projections might be off when you spend the money. 2014/03/28
    It was a struggle for the AOC to keep what they knew about the so called 70 million dollar revenue shortfall under wraps with a joint legislative audit committee breathing down their neck. Had the information leaked out sooner, it just might have resulted in a unanimous decision to audit the judicial council and the […]
