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.
