A New Scandal Involving Howard Rice and the State Bar of California on the Cusp of Breaking by a Modern Day David — Will Jerome Falk Rip His Throat Out?

A young man has recently emerged to stake his claim for the role of David in fighting abuse and injustices within the corrupt California State Bar.

According to anonymous sources, David Dydzak Daniel, a relatively unknown attorney from Marina Del Ray, will be airing his grievances concerning State Bar corruption, as well as the instrumental involvement of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin in said corruption, at a special hearing ordered by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to examine alleged violations of David’s due process rights.

It is safe to assume that the judges on the Ninth Circuit – who were victimized and had a mockery made of them vis-à-vis the decision by the State Bar and Howard Rice’s Jerome Falk not to discipline Walter Lack and Thomas Girardi – will be paying closer attention to David’s grievances.

Mr. Jerome Falk of Howard Rice, an appellate specialist with a mercurial personality. In 2008, during an interview with a legal publication, Mr. Falk stated while describing some opposing counsel, “I would do anything to squash them. So those cases don’t settle. You just want to rip their throats out.” After visiting Vietnam, Mr. Falk joined East meets West, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children in Vietnam.

While it would, of course, be premature to assess the validity of David’s claims without first fully examining the case file. According to the sources, however, David is a credible and capable lawyer who is passionate about justice; and has already proven that he is able to withstand the kind of punishing opposition allegedly provided courtesy of the State Bar on behalf of the wrongdoers.

More specifically, it is alleged that Howard Rice was instrumental in using the State Bar of California/State Bar Court as a vehicle to punish David for his role in exposing corruption and improprieties at brokerage house Charles Schwab, an established client of Howard Rice.

In his pleadings submitted to the Ninth Circuit, David alleges improprieties on the part of State Bar Court Judge Donald Miles, a former partner at Howard Rice, as well as Sean Selegue, who is presently a partner at Howard Rice.

Notably, Howard Rice is a major contributor to the State Bar Foundation. Doug Winthrop, President-elect of the State Bar of California Foundation and a partner at Howard Rice, has not been named as one of the actors who participated in the alleged scheme to harm David, and as such TLR urges readers to exercise caution and not jump to conclusions regarding any involvement by him.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
