Sources: Disappointment in Joseph Zernik of Human Rights Alert (NGO) In Re: Berkshire Hathaway, Charlie Munger, Sustain/ Daily Journal, Bank of America, Wells Fargo Bank, State Bar of California, Bet Tzedek

The Leslie Brodie Report has learned from sources seeking anonymity that a Yolo County-based Rabbi (“YR”) is “disappointed” in Joseph Zernik’s alleged failure to report on matters relating to Charlie Munger and Ron Olson of Berkshire Hathaway — an entity  which owns substantial shares of Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank.

Specifically, according to the sources. YR’s disappointment stems from the fact that Joseph Zernik failed to include in his massive reporting of alleged corruptions dealing with Bank of America, Bet Tzedek, Daily Journal/Sustain that the second-in-command at Berkshire Hathaway (Charlie Munger of Munger Tolles & Olson) is also the owner the Daily Journal/ Sustain.

According to these sources, YR declared: “While I respect Dr. Zernik and the work he has done in exposing the alleged corruption dealing with Bet Tzedek , Daily Journal/Sustain, and Bank of America in connection with the mortgage crisis, at least based on preliminary and ongoing research, I could not find any article published by Dr. Zernik where he connects the dots which will point a finger at Charlie Munger and Berkshire Hathaway.”

” Dr. Zernik deserves great credit as the pioneer in exposing Bet Tzedek, Daily Journal/Sustain, and Bank of America as far as the alleged corruption in the Los Angeles Superior Court in general, and as far as corruption relating to the mortgage crisis in particular,” YR continued. 

“However, since Berkshire Hathaway is a large stakeholder of Bank of America and Wells Fargo Bank, and since Charlie Munger is Warren Buffett’s sidekick at Berkshire Hathaway, and since Charlie Munger owns the Daily Journal/Sustain, and since Munger Tolles & Olson  and Charlie Munger exercise great deal of control over the State Bar of California and Bet Tzedek, I am hard pressed in understanding why Dr. Zernik never took the time to show those connections,” YR stated.

“In the likely event that I was remiss in researching this issue, I will be delighted to hear from Dr. Zernik.  He may contact me at,” YR concluded.

YR’s disappointment comes in the midst of separate revelations involving Munger Tolles & Olson named partner Ron Olson, Southern California Edison, Obama for America, and CaliforniaALL.

According to Wikipedia, Charles Thomas Munger (born January 1, 1924, in Omaha, Nebraska) is an American business magnate, lawyer, investor, and philanthropist. He is Vice-Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Corporation, the diversified investment corporation chaired by Warren Buffett; in that capacity, Buffett describes Munger as “my partner.” Munger served as chairman of Wesco Financial Corporation from 1984 through 2011 (Wesco was approximately 80%-owned by Berkshire-Hathaway during that time). He is also the chairman of the Daily Journal Corporation, based in Los Angeles, California, and a director of Costco Wholesale Corporation.

  • 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 […]
