Ms Jill Sperber of the State Bar of California

In reply to a complaint concerning, among others, unsettling financial transaction involving the California Bar Foundation and CaliforniaALL, Sperber wrote:

“No Bar or Foundation funds were used for CAAL creation (AKA CaliforniaALL – by TLR). The State Bar had no involvment with CAAL once it was incoparated and operating.”

“The State Bar Foundation served as CAAL’s escrow holder only to hold fundraising funds before its formal incoparation. Once CAAL was formed as non-profit entity, the funds were paid over to it.”

“Several of the informational items that you list are not factually accurate: to wit, that 1 – CaliforniaALL and the State Bar are bussiness partners. 2- a sub-rosa transfer of funds from the State Bar to CaliforniaALL took place.”

Jill Sperber Reply

 

Contrary to Ms. Sperber’s position, California Bar Foundation (which is owned and controlled by the State Bar of California) acknowledged in its annual report a transfer of $769,247 to CaliforniaALL, see below:

Similarly , below is an image which reflects State Bar of California Foundation (DBA California Bar Foundation) IRS Tax-Return showing a transfer of $774,247 to CaliforniaALL.

 

 

Likewise, and notwithstanding Sperber’s fraudulant assertion that “The State Bar had no involvement with CAAL once it was incorporated and operating.” State Bar of California own records provide the State Bar was responsible for designating, appointing, as well as re-appointing some of CaliforniaALL’s board of directors. See below an image which relfects a meeting agenda of State Bar of California Board of Governors.

 

 

 

Moreover, Sperber’s claim that “The State Bar had no involvement with CAAL once it was incorporated and operating” is clearly false as State Bar of California own executive-director (Ms Judy Johnson) served on CaliforniaALL’s Advisory Council alongside Judge Morrison England. See below:

Jill Sperber of the State Bar of California further wrote:

“Several of the informational items that you list are not factually accurate: to wit, that 1 – CaliforniaALL and the State Bar are bussiness partners. 2- a sub-rosa transfer of funds from the State Bar to CaliforniaALL took place.”

As we previously mentioned on TLR, other than in Foundation tax records and a 2 by 2 inch blurb in its 2008 annual report, the State Bar contribution was never mentioned again ? not by the State Bar itself, not in the Cal Bar Journal, not in the Foundation’s “newsroom,” and not by anyone or any publication of CaliforniaALL. See below, California Bar Foundation’s Newsroom, which made no mention of the “hush-hush” sub-rosa transfer to CaliforniaALL

Foundation News Room 2008 - Copy

 

In 2008, serving as President of the Foundation was Mario Camara. A joint letter published and signed by Camara and Hatamiya also made no mention of the hush-hush transfer. Wasn’t Mr. Camara proud of it, just like he was proud of other money which went to support “pipelines?” After all, CaliforniaALL was also intended to support “pipelines”. See below:

Below an image taken from CaliforniaALL own newsletter which alludes to the fact that the State Bar of California is a “Founding Partner” of CaliforniaALL. As such, the denial by Jill Sperber that CaliforniaALL and the State Bar of California were not partner of each other is false.

Stingy with credit and despite the transfer of close to $780,000 from the California Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL, only utility companies are listed as “Founding Funders.” See below:

  • 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 […]
