Ninth Circuit Judge William Fletcher Incomplete Wikipedia Profile [TLR Note: 1. Primarily lacking is information that in 1992 Judge Fletcher, then a Boalt Hall professor, had co-chaired Clinton’s election campaign in Northern California. 2. Since exposure of CaliforniaALL fraudulent financial scheme involving Democratic Party/ Obama for America operatives (i.e. Jeff Bleich, James Brosnahan, Tony West, Ron Olson, Kamala Harris) who were allegedly laundering money through the State Bar of California / California Bar Foundation, and since Dydzak’s lawsuit also pertains (surprisingly so) to CaliforniaALL, and since Judge Fletcher is a friend of Jeff Bleich and James Brosnahan — obvious question is should the entire Ninth Circuit disqualify itself from handling Dydzak’s lawsuit? 3. As reminder, TLR first published “scoop” that during matter of In Re Girardi, respondents submitted expert testimony to Ninth Circuit panel (which included Fletcher) that no discipline be imposed on Walter Lack — expert in question was prosecutor Rory Little’s colleague from Hastings College of Law and one who co-authored law book together with Judge William Fletcher – Prof. Jeffrey Hazard. 4. Examination remains underway whether Judge Fletcher engaged in quasi-ex-parte involving a) “Bribing Pat” in connection with book known as “The Great Dissents of the Lone Dissenter” b) in re OS Scandal / Jeffrey Bleich / lack of disclosures in re CCPF / Judy Johnson / CPUC’s Geoffrey Brown ]

  • 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 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 […]
