Dr. Joseph Zernik Hereby Asked to Comment on Fact Bet Tzedek Legal Services Operative David Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton Hit With New RICO

Using a law originally enacted to combat the mafia, a prominent national law firm recently took the rare step of suing David Pasternak, a Los Angeles-based receiver, under the federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations law (“RICO”).

Alleged racketeer David Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton was designated as defendant #37. In a separate suit, Pasernak was accused of misusing Bet Tzedek as a forum to meet, collude, and otherwise bribe various judges and lawyers for the purpose of further appointing him as “receiver.”(Image:courtesy photo)

RICO is a federal law that authorizes a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. RICO focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows for the leaders of a syndicate to be held civilly liable for the crimes that they ordered others to commit or which they assisted in committing.

Acting on behalf of hundreds of plaintiffs, Spire Law Group, a national law firm whose motto is “the public should be protected — at all costs — from corruption in whatever form it presents itself,” also named as part of the alleged racketeering enterprise banker Alan Rothenberg of 1st Century Bank (a bank which Eric George, son of Ronald George, owns in part) and Sandor “Sandy” Samuels – CEO and President of Bet Tzedek and former Chief Trial Counsel at embattled Countywide Financial Services.

Pasternak served as court Receiver since 1982. He currently serves as the federal court Receiver in a $150 million mortgage fraud case in which he has possessed some 85 expensive homes in California and Wyoming, as well as an array of other assets, including fine wines, art, jewelry, home furnishings, firearms, and various interests in high-end West Los Angeles home developments.

He is an officer of both Bet Tzedek and the Chancery Club.

According to media reports, The Spire Law Group comprised of lawyers nationally with more than 250-years of experience in a span of matters ranging from representing large corporations and wealthy individuals, to also representing the masses. The Firm is at the front lines litigating against government officials, banks, defunct loan pools, and now the very offshore entities where the corruption was enabled and perpetrated.

  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]

  • 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 […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    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 […]
