REVEALED: Documents Obtained from Santa Ana School District Confirm Claims by University of New Hampshire School of Law Sarah E. Redfield Re “Launched” SALUCI Suspect

Documents obtained from the Santa Ana Unified School District provide fresh circumstantial evidence that while University of New Hampshire School of Law Professor Sarah Redfield was employed at Sacramento-based  McGeorge School of Law , she conspired with Ruthe Ashley and others to create a charitable entity (CaliforniaALL) that would serve as a vehicle to misappropriate and/or launder close to $800,000 from the Foundation of the State Bar of California.

According to Redfield, between 2008 and 2009 she “launched” CaliforniaALL, participated in RFP, and “launched” the Saturday Academy of Law at U. C. Irvine.

Unfortunately, this is not the case. Instead, as most transactions involving CaliforniaALL, the California Bar Foundation and the State Bar of California, it is imbued with fraud and egregious acts dishonesty and deception as even the Santa Ana Unified School District makes no Sarah Redfield in connection with the Saturday Academy of Law at U. C. Irvine.

Sarah Redfield of UNH School of Law Not Mentioned as Part of Saturday Academy of Law

Specifically, the Saturday Academy of Law has been in existence for many years, and is part of the University of California Irvine’s Center for Educational Partnerships (CFEP), which has many programs to benefit the community, such as “UCI Saturdays with Sciences,” “Saturday Academy in Mathematics,” and the like.

Between 2004 and 2008, Professor Redfield served as a “visiting” professor at McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento. From 2008-2009, she served as interim Executive Director of CaliforniaALL, as well as program director.

Professor Redfield was paid $157,763 for her services, while she was misclassified as an “independent contractor.” See http://tinyurl.com/Portia-Balthazar

Sarah Redfield’s CV, between 2008 and 2009 she “launched” CaliforniaALL, participated in RFP, and “launched” the Saturday Academy of Law at U. C. Irvine.

Similarly, CaliforniaALL’s own publication indicates that with CaliforniaALL’s grant funds, U.C. Irvine developed and implemented the Saturday Academy of Law, and that by 2009 CaliforniaALL’s mission was visibly at work through the program. See below.

For example, as part of a field trip to law firms, the photo below was taken in 2005 when the UCISAL group visited the law offices of Sheppard Mullin.

In 2007, UCISAL paid a visit to Allen Matkins. (See below.) We have intentionally blurred the photo to maintain the students’ privacy. Seated on the right is Robert Hamilton. On the far right is Karina Hamilton, a former Allen Matkins associate, wife of Robert Hamilton, and Director of UCISAL.

In fact, UCI’s own literature gives no credit to CaliforniaALL. (See below.)

Additionally, claims by Sarah E. Redfield to the effect that she was part of both the CURRICULUM COMMITTEE and OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE are also false, fraudulent, and were otherwise spun from whole cloth.

While Professor Redfield was part of the Oversight Committee, she was not part of the Curriculum Committee. In fact, the sources maintain that close examination of SAL Curriculum shows that it was similar to the curriculum in the years before CaliforniaALL was even established, with emphasis on exceptions to the First Amendment such as time, place, and manner.

See below, misleading claims by Professor Sarah E. Redfield, which falsely mention Curriculum Committee. :

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 $780,000.00 from the State Bar of California Foundation (DBA California Bar Foundation.)   It  was abruptly dissolved in June of 2010.

To date, data collected shows that CaliforniaALL (which was supposed to forward most of those funds) transferred between $300,000 to $400,000 to the UCI Foundation (where Joe Dunn serves as trustee), spent an unknown amount to honor Gwen Moore at a lavish dinner held at a luxury hotel in Sacramento, paid for other incidental expenses such as salaries, and subsequent to moving out from the offices of DLA Piper to a more modest location , paid for a UPS Store mail box slot in Citrus Heights.

CaliforniaALL never acknowledged receipt of the approximate $780,000 from the Cal Bar Foundation in any of its publications, although it did acknowledge the transfer on its IRS tax returns. Likewise, California Bar Foundation never acknowledged the largest grant it ever bestowed in its newsroom, the California Bar Journal, or similar publications; it did, however, recognize the transfer on its IRS returns, and in a 2 by 2 inch blurb in its annual report.

In September 2009, Ruthe Ashley abruptly exited CaliforniaALL. In the same month and year, Joe Dunn publicly launched the online publication —  ” Voice of OC” with the help of Thomas Girardi and James Brosnahan.

Voice of OC Team
VOICE OF OC TEAM (ORIGINAL BOD) — UCI’s Henry Weinstein, Morrison & Foerster’s James Brosnahan, Girardi & Keese’s Thomas Girardi, Joe Dunn, Martha Escutia, and UCI’s Erwin Chemerinsky

The fact that some individuals and entities involved in the creation of CaliforniaALL and the subsequent  transfer of $780,000 from the Cal Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL were also involved in assisting Joe Dunn with the creation of “Voice of OC” has caused complainant to entertain the thought that “Voice of OC” may have been a recipient, at least in part, of the $780,000 obtained from the Foundation of the State Bar of California. To wit: on one hand Morrison & Foerster’s Susan Mac Cormac as legal counsel for CaliforniaALL; Morrison & Foertser Annette Carnegie and  Girardi & Keese’s Howard Miller in their capacity as BOD members of California Bar Foundation. On the other hand Morrison &Foerster’s James Brosnahan and Girardi & Keese’s Thomas Girardi as part of helping Joe Dunn with the establishment of Voice of OC.

The belief is heightened given various events’ proximity in time —  Ruthe Ashley left CaliforniaALL in the same month Joe Dunn  launched “Voice of OC”  (as though her mission had been completed). Moreover, the recent abrupt departure of Thomas Girardi and James Brosnahan from ‘Voice of OC” ( as though they were fleeing the scene with guilty consciences), the refusal of SAL-UCI to disclose the amount it receive from CaliforniaALL, the simulated RFP, and CaliforniaALL’s pre-selection of the UCI Foundation as a recipient of funds only reinforce this belief. This is heightened by Mr. Thomas Girardi’s lack of credibility (pursuant to findings made by a panel of federal judges), and the friendship Joe Dunn shares with him.
