Judicial Council Watcher Asks: Is the AOC is contracting with entities that don’t appear to legally exist?

One of the things that has shocked us over the years is how the AOC contracts with a multitude of entities that 1) Don’t appear to be legally formed or exist or 2) that they seemingly hire or otherwise engage hundreds of new law firms every year across California. The latter serves to bolster their invincible immunity because there is hardly any law firm across the state that wouldn’t have to conflict out of representing those who might feel slighted by the Judicial Council or the AOC.

Recently, the legislature passed a requirement that the judicial branch report individual contracts in semi-annual reporting periods. The reason the legislature passed this requirement was because the legislature had learned through various whistleblowers that the AOC was contracting with entities that did not appear to legally exist or were legally formed. Two such entities that should rapidly spring to mind is Team Jacobs and Aleut Global Solutions who both lacked contractors licenses.

Luckily, those sharp legal minds on the litigation management committee of the judicial council realized that if they controlled any and all litigation, they would be able to snuff out any and all allegations of impropriety directed at themselves so they set about controlling the litigation to a loss against Jacobs and apparently a confidential settlement with respect to Aleut. We’re guessing it was a confidential settlement because the AOC tells us the matter is confidential.

Over these required reporting periods we sat back and used a little known tool that anyone in the judicial branch has access to and permitted the AOC to hang themselves. Now we’re going to go the extra mile and distribute the list to legislators. This little tool could have done so much to clarify the legally formed status of those that do business with the AOC. Surely, the AOC checks with California Department of Business Oversight, California’s new one-stop shop for everything related to corporate and limited liability\limited partnership status to determine if an entity is legal before doing business with them don’t they?

  • 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 […]
