David Reed Dec In Re Progress Ranch Reed Dec Under Penalty of Perjury

On December 29, 2010, The Davis Enterprise reported:

“The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge has announced it is contributing $6,500 to eight local charities and community groups as beneficiaries from the annual Breakfast with Santa held December 11, 2010

“In addition to providing a fun experience with Santa for 360 children and families, we are pleased to be able to help others during this holiday season,” said Lea Rosenberg, an Odd Fellow who co-chaired the breakfast.

Recipients of the donations are: $1,500 to Progress Ranch, which provides a home to foster children.

“Because of donations of food and other items for the breakfast, as well as financial donations from sponsors, the Odd Fellows are able to keep the cost of Breakfast with Santa at a really low level, and also have funds remaining to benefit these important community groups,” said Dave Reed, noble grand of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge.

Barbara Sommer
Barbara Sommer (who currently serves as the president of Progress Ranch; President of California Grand Jurors’ Association – Yolo County Chapter) is being looked into for indications of whether she may have been the recipient of questionable gifts during a time period when she served concurrently as Treasurer of Progress Ranch and Foreperson of Yolo County’s Grand Jury in order to influence the outcome of various legal proceedings, and especially a Grand Jury investigation of Cache Creek Casino located in Yolo County.

“The event is presented by the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and Davis Rebekah Lodge, with food donations from the Davis Food Co-op, Woodstock’s Pizza, Kona Coast Food Products and Puroast Low Acid Coffee.

“The 175 members of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge look forward to Breakfast with Santa every year because it brings so much joy and pleasure to the children and families who participate,” said Dave Reed, Noble Grand of the lodge.

Proceeds from the event will support emancipated foster youths as they transition to adulthood and Progress Ranch, a group home for foster boys in Davis.”

Separately, on March 9, 2012 The Davis Enterprise reported the following:

“I received an email from Lea Rosenberg of the Davis Odd Fellows saying that we were going to be the recipients of their “Breakfast with Santa” fundraiser during the 2011 holiday season. When I arrived at the Odd Fellows Hall on Feb. 22, Lea graciously provided an introduction of Progress Ranch to the membership, and a check was presented to me.

The board and staff of Progress Ranch applaud the Odd Fellows and the Davis community for collaborating and partnering with our agency since its inception and in the successful fundraiser, the 2011 holiday appeal letter.” (emphasis added)

Sonya Molodetskaya

Sonya Molodetskaya—Russian refugee, aspiring boutique owner, mostly absentee immigrant rights commissioner, and decade-long lady friend of ex-mayor Willie Brown—has a zebra pelt on her living room floor. She ordered it on eBay for $1,500; she thinks it came from Zimbabwe. In her closet hang enough chinchilla, sable, and silver fox coats to inspire a PETA protest. The collection includes the tan mink parka that she was wearing when she stepped off the plane at SFO at age 24, back in 1996, after her parents forced her to leave her social life (and boyfriend) in Moscow and reinvent herself as a Russian Jewish émigré in the Outer Sunset.

But hers is no typical immigrant tale, as evidenced by the tower of orange Hermès boxes in the closet, the shelves of stilettos, the 2011 Jaguar convertible in the garage across the street, and the giant black-and-white painting on the living room wall: Molodetskaya wearing a lacy bra and—what else?—a fur, mob-wife style. Across the room is a baby grand piano. She learned to play after her father greased the palm of a Muscovite schoolmaster, but she’s reneging on her promise to serenade me: She has an earache that kept her cooped up at home yesterday, as well as a gash on her hand incurred while slicing Spanish chorizo for a snack.

We’re sitting on Molodetskaya’s couch on a Tuesday afternoon, her earache beginning to subside thanks to a liberal infusion of red wine—each of us is on our second glass. “I can’t live this life sober,” she says in a rich accent that rolls out like a blend of Moscow and Queens. She’s joking—sort of. Having spent several afternoons and evenings in her company, I have learned her terms: There is no interview with Sonya unless you drink with Sonya. She calls this Russian hospitality, and I’ve been subject to it at the Four Seasons Hotel, at a Marina hair salon before a symphony gala, and at Jardinière after a marathon Immigrant Rights Commission meeting—from which she stepped out and asked me, “Where’s the drink?”

Rick Boyles – Grand Master of Grand Lodge of California — Asked to Comment on Alleged Perjury by David Reed (husband of Sheryl Cambron) Concerning Financial Contributions from Davis Odd Fellows to Progress Ranch / Barbara Sommer

Hello Mr. Boyles:

I hope you are well, and thanks for replying to my email the other day.

Do you by any chance know why Dave Reed stated — falsely — under penalty of perjury that “DAVIS ODD FELLOWS HAVE NEVER MADE CONTRIBUTIONS OR PARTICIPATED IN FUND-RAISING FOR PROGRESS RANCH.”

As you know, Reed is a judge of the Yolo County Superior Court and Progress Ranch is an entity controlled by Barbara Sommer — foreman of Yolo County Grand Jury.

As you also know, because of the almost exclusive financial contributions to “emancipated foster youth,” I suspected that Lea and David Rosenberg misused Davis Odd Fellows to launder money to Barbara Sommer on behalf of Cache Creek Casino — an entity which Sommer was investigating in her capacity as foreman of the Yolo County Grand Jury.

Recently, much to my chagrin, I came across various articles which clearly state that Davis Odd Fellows — during the time period Dave Reed serve as president — repeatedly made financial contributions to Progress Ranch.

If you know why Dave Reed chose to defraud the court and myself, please let me know.

Davis Odd Fellows Breakfast With Santa Revisited [ TLR Editorial Notes: Purpose of post to alert YR / Public “Davis Waste Removal” operated by John Geisler — spouse of defendant Barbara Geisler ]

Breakfast With Santa Delivers Lots Of Fun

Today the Davis Odd Fellows completed our seventh annual Breakfast with Santa in downtown Davis. It was a great success. We heard nothing but compliments and saw nothing but smiles from the 350 children and families who enjoyed the morning. Folks in Davis, CA really look forward to Breakfast with Santa – tickets all sell out in two weeks or less.

We have so many people to thank, but especially the world’s best Santa, our own Doug Hatton. Thank you also to his wife and Santa Manager Margee, and the 8 young ladies who were the elves. The kitchen and cooking crew headed by John Geisler and Barb Geisler were just great – hard-working from 6 a.m. and constantly cranking out the pancakes, sausages and other goodies. Thank you to our excellent photographer, Ernesto Sandoval, and Dee Clark from Woodstock’s who served her famous Cinna-Bread. We had some 50 volunteers from our Lodges who worked in shifts from 7 this morning till about 1 p.m. this afternoon. Thank you to Sharla Cheney who, once again, was our volunteer coordinator, and Dave Rosenberg, once again our volunteer wrangler and PR guy. Everyone pitched in filling goodie bags, decorating the tables, serving, cleaning, and doing all the tasks that need to be done to pull off this event. This year we tried something different and had three volunteer shifts, rather than two – thus involving even more members of our Lodges. We also had a special clean-up crew of volunteers to handle the kitchen. It takes MANY hands to put on this big show. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers:

And, once again, we received applications from folks who attended Breakfast with Santa, and now want to join the Odd Fellows and Rebekah Lodges. They want to join because they see the great community spirit of our Lodges and members.

We also appreciate the merchants, like the Davis Coop, Woodstock’s Pizza, Mezzeta Foods and Puroast Coffee, who donated all the food supplies. And thank you to the many donors who contributed over $3,000 to help our efforts – donors like Edward Jones Inc. and David Cougevan, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Wochok Group, the Law Offices of Raquel Silva, the Law Offices of Roberta Savage, Supervisor Don Saylor, Retired Supervisor Helen Thomson, Davis Ace Hardware, Davis Waste Removal, First Northern Bank, Tandem Properties, Hanlees Nissan of Davis, and others. We also thank Avid Reader and Common Grounds who have sold tickets for us for many years.

The proceeds from Breakfast with Santa are used to benefit foster children in our community, and young adults who have recently left the foster system.

We look forward to the eighth annual Breakfast with Santa in 2013. (Once we rest up.)

Plaintiff,

v.

Lea Rosenberg, Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge; Grand Lodge of California; Independent Order of Odd Fellows; Davis Odd Fellows; Soroptimist International of Davis; Soroptimist International; Soroptimist International of the Americas; David Rosenberg; David Reed; Sheryl Cambron; Barbara Geisler; Virgil Smith; Robert Bockwinkel; Jonathan Raven; Allison Zuvela; Michael Cabral; Tracie Olson; Kathleen White; and Does 1 through 100, inclusive,

Defendants.

1. Plaintiff – an individual residing in Yolo County, an investigative reporter and a Rabbi — has been subject to a campaign of systemic harassment ever since he uncovered corruption in various matters dealing with Boyd Gaming Director, owner of various casinos, and class-action attorney Thomas Girardi (“Girardi”) of Girardi & Keese in connection with financial corruption involving California Democratic Party operatives.

2. For example, Plaintiff unearthed the fact that subsequent to being disciplined by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stemming from an attempt to defraud the court by resorting to the ‘use of known falsehoods’, the State Bar of California appointed as ‘special prosecutor’ to Girardi’s own private malpractice lawyer (Jerome Falk of Howard Rice) to prosecute Girardi on the State Bar’s behalf. (When later questioned about this matter, Falk, seeking to mislead Plaintiff, told Plaintiff that his firm had represented the law firm of Girardi & Keese, but not Girardi himself.)
3. Plaintiff also discovered corruption in a national class-action case (Fogel v. Farmers) whereas Girardi – who represented the class of plaintiffs – never disclosed that the attorney who represented defendant Farmers was concurrently representing Girardi in a separate legal matter. Very shortly after Plaintiff exposed the corruption, attorneys for Farmers approached, sought and obtained from the court a supplemental notice to the class of plaintiffs (consisting of 14 million Americans) indicating that if they cashed their settlement checks, they agreed to not sue Farmers or Girardi because of the undisclosed relationship.

4. Plaintiff also unearthed corruption involving Girardi (who has a reputation of ‘bankrolling’ the California Democratic party) and individuals associated with the California Democratic Party with connections to the California Public Utilities Commission/Energy Commission (Michael Peevey, Tim Simon, Geoffrey Brown, Peter Arth, Joe Dunn, Martha Escutia, Darrell Steinberg) and utility lawyers involved in the ‘California Energy Crisis’ (Ron Olson and Jeff Bleich of Munger Tolles; James Brosnahan of Morrison & Foerster; John Keker of Keker & Van Nest; Jerry Falk and Douglas Winthrop of Howard Rice; Thomas Girardi of Girardi & Keese; Joe Cotchett of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy; Mark Robinson of Robinson Calcagnie Robinson, and the law-offices of DLA Piper) to launder money from utility companies (SCE, PG&E, Verizon, AT&T) to various members of California Democratic Party (Joe Dunn, Martha Escutia, Kamala Harris, Jerry Brown, Kevin Johnson, Darrell Steinberg) and OBAMA FOR AMERICA via various non-profits (CaliforniaALL, Level Playing Field Institute, California Consumer Protection Foundation).

5. Also involved in the various financial schemes were Cache Creek Casino, Sacramento-based developer Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property, his business partner (gambling attorney Howard Dickstein), and Dickstein’s wife, Jeannine English, who was also acting on behalf of AARP to position Barack Obama in the White House and on behalf of Mark Friedman to position Kevin Johnson as the mayor of Sacramento. Additionally involved were Obama for America tech-guru Mitch Kapor and his wife, Freada Kapor Klein.

6. In connection with the above discoveries, Plaintiff informed various law-enforcement agencies of these facts, as well as filed ethics complaints against some of the above named attorneys with the State Bar of California.

7. Plaintiff has been repeatedly warned that Girardi is ‘well-connected’ and will seek to silence Plaintiff as a result of Plaintiff’s discoveries and allegations.

8. Indeed, very shortly after Plaintiff unearthed these events, a posse of eight armed investigators from the Yolo County District Attorney’s office executed an invalid search warrant at Plaintiff’s place of residence in Yolo County and confiscated all documents and computers in his home relating to, inter alia, various ethics complaints filed by Plaintiff on the ground that the ethics complaints were baseless.

9. Plaintiff has been informed by credible sources, and thereon alleges, that David Rosenberg was one of those responsible for pressing criminal charges against him, that he ‘cleared the way’ for the search warrant, and that he is otherwise friendly with Howard Dicsktein, Mark Friedman, Jerry Brown, Mark Robinson, and Chief Marshall McKay of Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation (all actors in CaliforniaALL — a sham non-profit launched for the purpose of laundering funds to finance the campaigns of various politicians, including President Obama, Kamala Harris, Kevin Johnson of Sacramento, and Governor Jerry Brown.

PART II: BACKGROUND OF FACTS UNDERLYING CLAIMS AGAINST LEA ROSENBERG AND RELATED INDIVIDUALS AND ENTITIES FOR VIOLATION OF CALIFORNIA’S BUSINESS & PROFESSIONS CODE § 17200 — PREDICATED ON 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d)

10. Following the execution of the invalid search warrant on Plaintiff’s home, described above, Plaintiff began conducting research into David Rosenberg’s background and learned that he is a judge with the Yolo County Superior Court with a reputation of being a ‘political animal’.
11. Plaintiff further learned, and thereupon alleges, that David Rosenberg and his wife (Lea Rosenberg) are deeply involved — as either officers or directors — with a web of non-profit entities worth millions of dollars known as Saratoga Retirement Community, Meadows of Napa Valley, Davis Odd Fellows, Odd Fellows Homes of California, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Soroptimist International of Davis, and others.

12. Plaintiff also discovered that Lea Rosenberg — as the wife of a judge – was energetically raising funds from various businesses. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Lea Rosenberg is an individual residing in Yolo County.
13. Judge Rosenberg’s judicial campaign treasurer, Victor Bucher, is a nationally renowned expert in the area of accounting and tax fraud, and also serves as the ‘treasurer’ of a separate non-profit entity launched by David Odd Fellows — Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc. — where David Rosenberg serve as president and Bucher as Treasurer.
14. On April 4, 2013 — consistent with the statutory framework put into place by 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d) — Plaintiff served a request for Davis Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge to make available for inspection their IRS 990 forms, which Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges are tax-exempt organizations.
15. A tax-exempt organization must make available for public inspection its application for tax exemption, three most recent 990 annual information returns, and schedules and attachments available, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d), which reads, in relevant part:
‘Public inspection of certain annual returns, reports, applications for exemption, and notices of status
(1) In general
In the case of an organization described in subsection (c) or (d) of section 501 and exempt from taxation under section 501 (a) or an organization exempt from taxation under section 527 (a)—
(A) a copy of—
(i) the annual return filed under section 6033 (relating to returns by exempt organizations) by such organization,
(ii) any annual return which is filed under section 6011 by an organization described in section 501 (c)(3) and which relates to any tax imposed by section 511 (relating to imposition of tax on unrelated business income of charitable, etc., organizations),
(iii) if the organization filed an application for recognition of exemption under section 501 or notice of status under section 527 (i), the exempt status application materials or any notice materials of such organization, and
(iv) the reports filed under section 527 (j) (relating to required disclosure of expenditures and contributions) by such organization, shall be made available by such organization for inspection during regular business hours by any individual at the principal office of such organization and, if such organization regularly maintains 1 or more regional or district offices having 3 or more employees, at each such regional or district office, and
(B) upon request of an individual made at such principal office or such a regional or district office, a copy of such annual return, reports, and exempt status application materials or such notice materials shall be provided to such individual without charge other than a reasonable fee for any reproduction and mailing costs.
The request described in subparagraph (B) must be made in person or in writing. If such request is made in person, such copy shall be provided immediately and, if made in writing, shall be provided within 30 days.
(2) 3-year limitation on inspection of returns
Paragraph (1) shall apply to an annual return filed under section 6011 or 6033 only during the 3-year period beginning on the last day prescribed for filing such return (determined with regard to any extension of time for filing).’

16. Plaintiff delivered the request through Lea Rosenberg because she was the common denominator between the various ‘Odd Fellows’ entities and Soroptimist, in that she served as an officer and/or director of the various ‘Odd Fellows’ entities, and as president of Davis Rebekah Lodge.

17. Specifically, on April 4, 2013 Plaintiff delivered to Lea Rosenberg at learose@jps.net the following email request:
‘Re: Request for Production of IRS Form 990, Form 990 Schedule A, Form 1023 to entities associated with Lea Rosenberg, to wit: Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows

Dear Mrs. Rosenberg:

Consistent with U.S. Internal Revenue Service Regulations, please consider this communication a formal request to produce their IRS Form 990, Form 990 Schedule A, as well Form 1023.

18. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Lea Rosenberg received Plaintiff’s email dated April 3, 2013.

19. On April 24, 2013, Plaintiff delivered to Lea Rosenberg a notice of change of address.

20. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Lea Rosenberg received Plaintiff’s requests for the organizations’ IRS 990 forms, and while conspiring with other Defendants, chose to breach the duty to comply with 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d).

21. Plaintiff is further informed and believes that Defendants have directly performed, or aided, abetted, counseled, commanded, induced, procured, encouraged, promoted, instigated, advised, willfully caused, participated in, enabled, contributed to, facilitated, directed, controlled, assisted in, or conspired in the commission of the above-described acts.

22. Due to this failure to comply with Plaintiff’s request, Plaintiff spent considerable time and resources trying to obtain those documents elsewhere, to no avail. Plaintiff asked his paid research-clerk to conduct further research on the Internet in hope of locating a complete set of the desired documents, also to no avail.

23. Still seeking a complete set of the requested documents, on September 24, 2013 Plaintiff sent Lea Rosenberg the following email:

“RE: Davis Odd Fellow Hall; Davis Odd Fellow – Second Request for Production of IRS Documents

Dear Ms. Rosenberg:

The purpose of this communication is to address the following matters:

1. Since you appear to have been involved with Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellow, and Sophomoric, I had previously asked you to produce the IRS tax-returns for those entities.

For reasons which I do not understand, rather than complying with this simple request (as you are required to do by law given the fact that those entities are allowed to operate on a ‘tax-exempt’ status), you have failed to respond. I am therefore reiterating my request that you comply with the request for these tax returns and produce them to me within the next 5 days.

As you know, I am troubled by events surrounding the almost exclusive fundraising to ‘emancipated foster youth’, Barbara Sommer, Davis Odd Fellow members Jonathan Raven and Michael Cabral, Cache Creek Casino, Vic Bucher, and Progress Ranch.

I am also troubled by the fact that Judge Rosenberg (and his Judicial Campaign CPA Vic Bucher) lends money to the judicial campaign of other judges (i.e. Tim Fall and Dan Maguire). Hence, I would like to get to the bottom of things, and need the requested tax forms to do so.

2. In the previously submitted request, there was no mention of ‘Davis Odd Fellow Hall.’ My position and understanding is that Davis Odd Fellow Hall is part of Davis Odd Fellow.
Nevertheless, please consider this communication a formal request to also provide copies of the last three tax return forms that ‘Davis Odd Fellow Hall’ had submitted to the IRS.

3. Given that Davis Odd Fellow, David Odd Fellow Hall, and Davis Rebekah Lodge are under the exclusive control of you, your husband David Rosenberg, as well as David Reed and his wife Cheryl Cambron, and given that both David Rosenberg and David Reed are judges of the Yolo County Superior Court, I submit that these entities have a duty to operate at an even higher level of transparency than mandated by the IRS, and must comply with the common law duty of disclosure.

Thus, in addition to inspecting and copying the documents authorized by the IRS, I request copies of detailed financial statements (i.e. income, expenditures, names of donors, names of businesses and amount of rent Davis Odd Fellow Hall charges its various tenants, identity of subcontractors, identity of those who have rented the Hall etc.) For example, my understanding is that David Greenwald (publisher of The People’s Vanguard of Davis and Vanguard Court Watch) entered into a contract with Davis Odd Fellow Hall. Given that Mr. Greenwald’s publications purport to report on misconduct and malfeasance in the local area, including the courts, it appears to me that there is a direct conflict between this stated mission and his decision to rent space from an entity whose Board is comprised of you, and two Yolo County Superior Court judges.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and receiving the requested documents.”

 

24. Later that day, Plaintiff received an email response from Lea Rosenberg stating only the following: ‘so he is at it again.’

 
FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION — Violation of California Business and Professions Code § 17200 Predicated on26 U.S.C. § 6104(d) (Against Defendants Lea Rosenberg, Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge; Grand Lodge of California; Independent Order of Odd Fellows; Davis Odd Fellows; Soroptimist International of Davis; Soroptimist International; Soroptimist International of the Americas; and Does 1 – 100)

25. Plaintiff incorporates paragraph by reference paragraphs 1 – 24 as though fully set forth herein.

26. Despite Plaintiff’s repeated requests, Defendants failed to comply with 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d). This failure constitutes unfair and unlawful acts pursuant to California’s Business & Professions Code § 17200.

27. Plaintiff is informed and believes that Defendants have directly performed, or aided, abetted, counseled, commanded, induced, procured, encouraged, promoted, instigated, advised, willfully caused, participated in, enabled, contributed to, facilitated, directed, controlled, assisted in, or conspired in the commission of the above-described acts.

28. As a proximate result of the unfair and unlawful acts of Defendants, as alleged above, Plaintiff suffered injury in fact and has lost money or property in an amount to be proven at trial.

SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION
Negligence per se — (Against Defendants Lea Rosenberg, Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge; Grand Lodge of California; Independent Order of Odd Fellows; Davis Odd Fellows; Soroptimist International of Davis; Soroptimist International; Soroptimist International of the Americas; Lea Rosenberg; and Does 1 – 100)

29. Plaintiff incorporates paragraph by reference paragraphs 1 – 28 as though fully set forth herein.

30. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that the Defendants named above were all aware of Plaintiff’s repeated requests for the information described in this Complaint — the entities’ IRS Form 990 forms.

31. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants were under a duty to ensure compliance, yet chose to breach a duty prescribed in 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d). This failure to comply with the statutory requirements constitutes negligence per se.

32. As a proximate result of Defendants’ breach of duty, as alleged above, Plaintiff spent considerable time and resources trying to obtain those documents elsewhere, to no avail. Plaintiff asked his paid research-clerk to conduct further research on the Internet in hope of locating a complete set of the desired documents, also to no avail. Plaintiff suffered injury in fact and has lost money or property in an amount to be proven at trial.

33. Plaintiff further alleges that Davis Odd Fellows owns a Hall (‘Davis Lodge Hall’), on a property adjacent to the two Lodges, and is the owner (and landlord) of rental property currently occupied by Hunan Chinese Restaurant and Coldwell-Banker Doug Arnold Real Estate.

34. The ‘Hall Board Association’ is a California corporation, and is the actual owner of the Davis Lodge Hall, the adjacent property of the two Lodges, and the rental property currently occupied by Hunan Chinese Restaurant and Coldwell-Banker Doug Arnold Real Estate.

35. The ‘Hall Board Association’ is composed of President David Rosenberg, Vice President David Reed, Secretary Lea Rosenberg, Treasurer Sheryl Cambron, and Barbara Geisler.

36. The Davis Lodge Hall is available to rent by the general public for receptions, fund-raisers, dinners, conferences, trade shows, meetings, and other events.

37. The Davis Lodge Hall is also used by Davis Odd Fellows for its own functions, such as Davis Odd Fellows Bingo and Master Balls.

38. In approximately September 2013, and after the expenditure of considerable time, resources, and efforts, Plaintiff managed to ascertain that the actual legal name of Davis Odd Fellows and David Rebekah Lodge is ‘Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge.’ Plaintiff then managed to obtain partial copies of tax returns that ‘Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge’ had submitted to the IRS.

39. Upon reviewing partial copies of the above-described IRS 990 forms from 2010 and 2011, Plaintiff noted that false information had been submitted to the IRS on two occasions that he was able to identify from the incomplete forms. Specifically, according to those 990 forms, in 2010 David Reed served as the president of Yolo Lodge 169; serving as the Treasurer of Yolo Lodge was Sheryl Cambron. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Reed and Cambron are married to each other.

40. However, this was not the information provided to the IRS. The 2010 IRS Form 990 submitted by Yolo Lodge asked, ‘Did any officer, director, trustee, or key employee have a family relationship or a business relationship with any other officer, director, trustee, or key employee?’ The form submitted by Yolo Lodge states, ‘NO.’ Since two of the officers (Reed and Cambron) were actually married to each other, this is a misrepresentation.

41. In 2011, Yolo Lodge officers submitted false information to the IRS again, this time involving a different set of actors — Lea and David Rosenberg, who are married to each other. Specifically, in 2011 David Rosenberg served as President of Yolo Lodge; his wife, Lea Rosenberg, served as ‘Secretary’ of Yolo Lodge, and David Reed served as a board member.

42. The 2011 IRS Form 990 submitted by Yolo Lodge asked, ‘Did any officer, director, trustee, or key employee have a family relationship or a business relationship with any other officer, director, trustee, or key employee?’ The form submitted by Yolo Lodge states, ‘NO.’ Since two of the officers (David Rosenberg and Lea Rosenberg) were actually married to each other, this is a misrepresentation.

43. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Virgil Smith is a CPA a member of Davis Odd Fellows, and a co-conspirator in the submission of these fraudulent tax-returns. Also responsible for submitting these fraudulent tax-returns were David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, Barbara Geisler, and Robert Bockwinkel.

44. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that the fraudulent tax-returns were submitted because David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, Barbara Geisler, Virgil Smith and Robert Bockwinkel did not want the IRS and the public to become aware that Sheryl Cambron is married to David Reed, and because they were concerned that if such relationships (i.e. Lea Rosenberg is married to David Rosenberg) would be disclosed, it may trigger an IRS audit.

45. As a proximate result of the unfair and unlawful acts of Defendants, as alleged above, Plaintiff suffered injury in fact and has lost money or property in an amount to be proven at trial.

THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION
Civil Conspiracy to Violate 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d)
(Against Defendants Lea Rosenberg, David Rosenberg, David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, Barbara Geisler, Virgil Smith; Robert Bockwinkel; and Does 1 – 100)

46. Plaintiff incorporates paragraph by reference paragraphs 1 – 45 as though fully set forth herein.

47. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants Lea Rosenberg, David Rosenberg, Sheryl Cambron, Robert Bockwinkel, David Reed, Barbara Geisler, and Virgil Smith willfully and knowingly conspired and agreed among themselves to a scheme by which they agreed to violate Plaintiff’s legal rights by not complying with 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d) because they were concerned he would discover the tax-fraud perpetrated on the IRS, as described above.

48. Some of the overt acts (both lawful and unlawful) that gave rise to this conspiracy, committed by one or more of the conspirators pursuant to their common design, were: (a) an agreement to intentionally violate 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d); (b) an agreement to ignore Plaintiff’s repeated requests for information sought pursuant to this statute; and (c) a lawful overt act to belittle Plaintiff by sending him an email which reads, ‘so he is at it again.’

49. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants have directly performed, or aided, abetted, counseled, commanded, induced, procured, encouraged, promoted, instigated, advised, willfully caused, participated in, enabled, contributed to, facilitated, directed, controlled, assisted in, or conspired in the commission of the above-described acts.

50. Plaintiff is also informed and believes and thereon alleges that David Odd Fellows / Yolo Lodge 169 / Odd Fellows Hall and related entities are and were almost exclusively overseen for years by judges and selected attorneys appearing before the Yolo County Superior Court who misuse Yolo 169 and Odd Fellows Hall as a convenient forum to meet, collude, and engage in ex parte communications in a secluded and non-public setting, as well as to raise funds by lending the prestige of their offices.

51. Said individuals include primarily Judge David Rosenberg, Judge Kathleen White, Judge David Reed, Yolo County Counsel Sheryl Cambron, District Attorney Jeff Reisig, Yolo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Raven, Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral, Yolo County Public Defender Tracey Olson, attorneys Allison Zuvela, Rodney Beede and wife Christina Zambrano Beede, and Fran McGuire (wife of judge Dan McGuire). A typical event, for example, was described on May 23, 2013 in the Davis Enterprise:

‘This year, the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge took over running the popular ’A Taste of Davis’ and we are delighted to report that the event on April 18 was a great success for all concerned.

We wish to thank the fine restaurants, wineries and breweries that treated our 250 guests to delightful food and drink: Applebee’s, Berryessa Gap Winery, Caffé Italia’s Brick Wall Pizza, California Vintage Specialties, Davis Food Co-op, Davis Farmers Market, Ding How, Dos Coyotes, Maria’s Cantina, Nugget Markets, Osteria Fasulo, Our House, Paesanos, Putah Creek Winery, Renaissance Wines, Route 3 Wines, Seasons, Senders Wines, Seka Hills Wines, Sudwerk, Sundstrom Hill Winery, Woodstock Pizza, Z Specialty Foods and Zindagi Indian Bistro.

We thank our sponsors who helped make this event so successful. First and foremost, we offer a big “thank you” to our major sponsor, Hanlees Toyota-Chevrolet-Nissan of Davis. And we also appreciate our other sponsors: The Davis Enterprise, California Vintage Specialties, Comstock Mortgage, Davis Downtown, Cunningham Engineering, Our House Restaurant and Lounge, the Davis Chamber of Commerce, Abaton Consulting, Law Offices of Poulos and Fullerton, Attorney Raquel Silva, the Law Offices of J.B. Dath, and Cache Creek Resort Casino.

Thank you to many individual sponsors: County Supervisors Jim Provenza and Don Saylor, Mayor Joe Krovoza, and Davis City Council members Dan Wolk, Rochelle Swanson, Brett Lee and Lucas Frerichs, as well as Tracie Olson, Dr. Arun Sen and Bob Schelen.

Special thanks to Stewart Savage of Abaton Consulting, who put together a terrific slide show that was shown on a continuous loop at the event.

Finally, we offer a big thank you to the committee that worked with us to plan and execute this successful event: Margie Cabral, Sheryl Cambron, Robin Dewey, Bill Grabert, Nancy Sue Hafer, Lewis Kimble, Steve Lopez, Fran Maguire, Amanda Maples, Joyce Puntillo, Dave Rosenberg, Raquel Silva, Robin Souza and Christopher Young. What a great, hard-working group.’

52. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that Davis Odd Fellows’ officers, directors, and members who are otherwise private actors — David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, Kathleen White, David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, Jonathan Raven, Tracie Olson, Allison Zuvela, Michael Cabral, Rodney Beede and Christina Zambrano Beede — conspired amongst themselves to fraudulently conceal the fact that Sheryl Cambron is married to Judge David Reed and is otherwise an attorney employed by Yolo County Counsel and is in a confidential attorney-client fiduciary relationship with Odd Fellows’ members Jeff Reisig, Michael Cabral, and Jonathan Raven on the account of representing them and/or their office in matters such as Gore v. Reisig, In Re Garcia, and Yilma v. Agonofer.

53. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that as part of a common scheme and conspiracy to defraud in order to advance said conspiracy, in the hundreds of articles written and published by Davis Odd Fellows/Davis Rebekah Lodge (or about the activities of Davis Odd Fellows by outside publications such as the Davis Enterprise or Daily Democrat), the fact that Reed and Cambron are actually married to each other, that Reed is a judge, and Cambron is an attorney with Yolo County Counsel is never mentioned, in order to mislead and defraud the public and litigants by means of a plan they conceived and executed.

54. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that as a further overt act by which to advance the objective of said conspiracy, Sheryl Cambron conceals from the public her association with Yolo County Counsel by causing numerous legal web-sites to misrepresent her employment status. Most, if not all, of those web-sites state that Sheryl Cambron is in fact in private practice representing litigants in matters dealing with bankruptcies, family law, and criminal law.

55. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that private actors Yolo Lodge 169, David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, Jonathan Raven, Allison Zuvela, Tracey Olson, Michael Cabral, and Kathleen White and Does 1 – 100 willfully and knowingly conspired and agreed among themselves to a scheme by which they agreed to conceal from the public and Plaintiff Cambron’s employment as an attorney with Yolo County Counsel, that she is the spouse of David Reed, as well as the confidential fiduciary relationship between Cambron on one hand and Reisig, Cabral and Raven on the other hand.

56. Plaintiff further alleges that private actors Rosenberg, Reed, Raven, and Zuvela conspired to fraudulently conceal the fact that Zuvela is an Odd Fellow by intentionally removing her name from the web-site davislodge.org — which yields a zero return when a search is performed for her name . Additionally, Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that David Rosenberg, David Reed, and Allison Zuvela conspired to further delete from the web-site davislodge.org all articles which mentions Zuvela’s name.

57. These conspiratorial acts were substantial factors in causing Plaintiff monetary losses and damages in an amount to be established at trial.

FOURTH CAUSE OF ACTION
Fraudulent Concealment
(Against Private Actors Defendants Yolo Lodge 169; David Rosenberg; Lea Rosenberg; David Reed; Sheryl Cambron; Jonathan Raven; Allison Zuvela; Michael Cabral; Tracie Olson; Kathleen White; and Does 1 – 100 )

58. Plaintiff incorporates paragraph by reference paragraphs 1 – 57 as though fully set forth herein.

59. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants committed the above described acts and omissions with intent to defraud the public and Plaintiff and deprive him of other interests he was entitled to. In particular, Defendants affirmatively concealed the existence of a marital relationship between Reed and Cambron, the fact that Cambron is an employee of Yolo County Counsel, and the fact that Allison Zuvela is an Odd Fellow member by affirmatively deleting her name from Odd Fellow web-site.

60. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants have directly performed, or aided, abetted, counseled, commanded, induced, procured, encouraged, promoted, instigated, advised, willfully caused, participated in, enabled, contributed to, facilitated, directed, controlled, assisted in, or conspired in the commission of the above-described acts.

61. Plaintiff reasonably relied upon the statements, acts, and omissions of Defendants to his detriment.

62. As a proximate result of Defendants’ conduct, as alleged above, Plaintiff suffered injury in fact in an amount to be proven at trial.
FIFTH CAUSE OF ACTION
42 U.S.C. § 1983
(Against State Actors Defendants David Rosenberg, Sheryl Cambron, Jonathan Raven, Allison Zuvela, Tracie Olson, Michael Cabral and Does 1 – 100)

63. Plaintiff incorporates paragraph by reference paragraphs 1 – 62 as though fully set forth herein.

64. Plaintiff is informed and believes and thereon alleges that state actors David Rosenberg, Sheryl Cambron, Jonathan Raven, Tracie Olson, Allison Zuvela and Michael Cabral and Does 1 – 100 willfully and knowingly conspired and agreed among themselves to a scheme by which they agreed to conceal from Plaintiff Cambron’s employment as an attorney with Yolo County Counsel, that she is the spouse of David Reed, the confidential fiduciary relationship between Cambron on one hand and Cabral and Raven on the other hand, and that Allison Zuvela is an Odd Fellow member, by among other things, deleting her name from the Odd Fellow web-site.

65. Plaintiff is further informed and believes and thereon alleges that Defendants have directly performed, or aided, abetted, counseled, commanded, induced, procured, encouraged, promoted, instigated, advised, willfully caused, participated in, enabled, contributed to, facilitated, directed, controlled, assisted in, or conspired in the commission of the above-described acts.

66. Plaintiff reasonably relied upon the statements, acts, and omissions of Defendants to his detriment.

67. As a proximate result of Defendants’ conduct, as alleged above, Plaintiff’s state and federal civil rights were violated and resulted in legal damages in an amount to be established at trial.

WHEREFORE, Plaintiff respectfully requests judgment against Defendants as follows:
1. For general and special damages under all causes of action where available by law;
2. For costs of suit;
3. For prejudgment interest;
4. For an injunction directing Defendants to comply with 26 U.S.C. § 6104(d); and
5. For such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

Re: A referral against exempt organization YOLO LODGE 169 INDEPENDENT ORDER OF ODD FELLOWS AND DAVIS REBEKAH LODGE (EIN Number 23-7417292) and officers David Reed, Sheryl Cambron, David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, and Virgil Smith

To whom it may concern:

In lieu of using the IRS’s Tax Exempt Organization Referral Form 13909, please consider this communication a formal complaint (‘referral’) against YOLO LODGE 169 INDEPENDENT ORDER OF ODD FELLOWS AND DAVIS REBEKAH LODGE (‘Yolo Lodge’) for fraud and deceit. Specifically, officers and directors of Yolo Lodge repeatedly misrepresented to the IRS (and the public) the nature of their familial relationship.

FRAUD BY YOLO LODGE PRESIDENT DAVE REED AND HIS TREASURER WIFE SHERYL CAMBRON

In 2010, serving as the president of Yolo Lodge was David Reed; serving as the Treasurer of Yolo Lodge was Sheryl Cambron.

David Reed and Sheryl Cambron are married to each other. However, Reed and Cambron chose to mislead the IRS and the public as to the true nature of their relationship. More specifically, Reed and Cambron failed to disclose, as they were required to do, to the IRS that they were married to each other while serving as officer of Yolo Lodge.

For example, the 2010 IRS Form 990 submitted by Yolo Lodge asked, ‘Did any officer, director, trustee, or key employee have a family relationship or a business relationship with any other officer, director, trustee, or key employee?’ The form submitted by Yolo Lodge states, ‘NO.’ Since two of the officers (Reed and Cambron) were actually married to each other, this is a misrepresentation.

FRAUD BY YOLO LODGE PRESIDENT DAVID ROSENBERG AND HIS SECRETARY WIFE LEA ROSENBERG

In 2011, Yolo Lodge officers perpetrated the same lie with a different set of actors, namely Lea and David Rosenberg, who are married to each other.

Specifically, In 2011, serving as President of ‘Yolo Lodge’ was David Rosenberg; his wife, Lea Rosenberg, served as ‘Secretary’ of Yolo Lodge, and Dave Reed served as a board member.

The 2011 IRS Form 990 submitted by Yolo Lodge asked, ‘Did any officer, director, trustee, or key employee have a family relationship or a business relationship with any other officer, director, trustee, or key employee?’ The form submitted by Yolo Lodge states, ‘NO.’ Since two of the officers (David Rosenberg and Lea Rosenberg) were actually married to each other, this is a misrepresentation.

It is important to note that both David Rosenberg and David Reed are judges of the Yolo County Superior Court, and such misrepresentations are extremely serious. This is especially true when viewed in conjunction with the circumstances described in a prior complaint the undersigned submitted to the IRS dated May 23, 2013 (see exhibit A), which is incorporated herein by reference.

ADDITIONAL MISCONDUCT BY LEA ROSENBERG, DAVID ROSENBERG, AND DAVID REED.

On September 24, 2013, the undersigned sent Lea Rosenberg an email which read as follows:

“Dear Ms. Rosenberg:

The purpose of this communication is to address the following matters:

1. Since you appear to have been involved with Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellow, and Sophomoric, I had previously asked you to produce the IRS tax-returns for those entities.

For reasons which I do not understand, rather than complying with this simple request (as you are required to do by law given the fact that those entities are allowed to operate on a ‘tax-exempt’ status), you have failed to respond. I am therefore reiterating my request that you comply with the request for these tax returns and produce them to me within the next 5 days.

As you know, I am troubled by events surrounding the almost exclusive fundraising to ‘emancipated foster youth’, Barbara Sommer, Davis Odd Fellow members Jonathan Raven and Michael Cabral, Cache Creek Casino, Vic Bucher, and Progress Ranch.

I am also troubled by the fact that Judge Rosenberg (and his Judicial Campaign CPA Vic Bucher) lends money to the judicial campaign of other judges (i.e. Tim Fall and Dan Maguire). Hence, I would like to get to the bottom of things, and need the requested tax forms to do so.

2. In the previously submitted request, there was no mention of ‘Davis Odd Fellow Hall.’ My position and understanding is that Davis Odd Fellow Hall is part of Davis Odd Fellow.

Nevertheless, please consider this communication a formal request to also provide copies of the last three tax return forms that ‘Davis Odd Fellow Hall’ had submitted to the IRS.

3. Given that Davis Odd Fellow, David Odd Fellow Hall, and Davis Rebekah Lodge are under the exclusive control of you, your husband David Rosenberg, as well as David Reed and his wife Cheryl Camberon, and given that both David Rosenberg and David Reed are judges of the Yolo County Superior Court, I submit that these entities have a duty to operate at an even higher level of transparency than mandated by the IRS, and must comply with the common law duty of disclosure.

Thus, in addition to inspecting and copying the documents authorized by the IRS, I request copies of detailed financial statements (i.e. income, expenditures, names of donors, names of businesses and amount of rent Davis Odd Fellow Hall charges its various tenants, identity of subcontractors, identity of those who have rented the Hall etc.) For example, my understanding is that David Greenwald (publisher of The People’s Vanguard of Davis and Vanguard Court Watch) entered into a contract with Davis Odd Fellow Hall. Given that Mr. Greenwald’s publications purport to report on misconduct and malfeasance in the local area, including the courts, it appears to me that there is a direct conflict between this stated mission and his decision to rent space from an entity whose Board is comprised of you, and two Yolo County Superior Court judges.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and receiving the requested documents.”

Rather than complying with my request to produce the relevant 990 Form, as she was required to do, Ms. Rosenberg sent me an email which reads, in its entirety, ‘so he is at it again.’

As such, the undersigned requests that the IRS also investigate and impose appropriate sanctions on ‘Davis Odd Fellows Hall’ officers David Rosenberg, David Reed, and Lea Rosenberg as it is clear from Ms. Rosenberg’s latest communication to me, cited above, that she ( David Rosenberg and David Reed) do not plan to comply with the request to produce the requested 990 form. In fact, if anything, Ms. Rosenberg’s email response makes clear that she views my legitimate requests as nothing more than a nuisance, rather than a legitimate request authorized by the IRS Code.

Thank you for your assistance with this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need further information.

Record of additional shenanigans involving Davis Odd Fellows and Yolo County Superior Court judges David Rosenberg, David Reed and spouses Lea Rosenberg and Sheryl Cambron: Davis Odd Fellows Lodge Discrimination Based on Religion, Race (TLR Editorial Notes: 1) Notice David Rosenberg chairs Membership & Initiation Committee. 2) Prerequisite for membership is for applicant to believe in God or Supreme Being. 3) Such requirement places David Rosenberg and David Reed in a collusion course with California Cannon of Judicial Ethics 4) Additionally, notice very little, if any, African-American members.

TIMELINE January, 2013: Lea Rosenberg installed as Noble Grand of the Davis Rebekah Lodge, Dave Rosenberg installed as Secretary, Sheryl Cambron (wife of Judge David Reed) installed as Conductor (TLR Notes: relevant to Fraud on Court by Judge Reed who defrauded YR as well as Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge Valli Israels by not disclosing the role of his wife 2. This is the third act of fraud perpetrated by Judge Reed. The first act of fraud deals with the fact that Reed never disclosed his role as “Grand Conductor” of the Grand Lodge. The second act of fraud deals with the fact that Judge Reed never disclosed his role of a 2010-12 President of Davis Odd Fellows — the time period which was the subject of a complaint to the IRS)

Lea Rosenberg has been installed as Noble Grand of the Davis Rebekah Lodge by District Deputy President Donna Morrison at a meeting of the Lodge on January 28.

Other elected officers of the Davis Rebekah Lodge installed that evening were Vice Grand Lin Spangler, Secretary Dave Rosenberg, Treasurer Diana Schmiegel and Financial Secretary Sharla Cheney.   All appointed officers of the Lodge were present as well, and were installed into office:  Warden Barb Geisler, Conductor Sheryl Cambron, Chaplain Joyce Trujillo, Right Supporter of the Noble Grand Jeannie Pytel…..

YR’s complaint to IRS and YR’s SECOND C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge to Judge David Reed, below:

Internal Revenue Service
Exempt Organizations Unit
1100 Commerce St.
Dallas, TX 75242-1198

Re: A referral against exempt organizations 1) Davis Odd Fellows; 2)Soroptimist International of Davis; and 3) Davis Rebekah Lodge

In lieu of using the IRS’s Tax Exempt Organization Referral Form, please consider this communication a formal complaint (referral) against Yolo County, California not-for-profit entities known as 1) the Independent Order of Odd Fellows — Davis Odd Fellows Lodge #169 (“Davis Odd Fellows”); 2)Soroptimist International of Davis; and 3) Davis Rebekah Lodge.

On April 4 , 2013, the Davis Odd Fellows, Soroptimist International of Davis, and Davis Rebekah Lodge were duly served with a request for production of the three latest IRS Form 990, Form 990 Schedule A, as well as Form 1023.

David RosenbergLea Rosenberg aka Lea Ellen Pepper
Davis Odd Fellows Operatives: Lea Rossenberg, Judge Dave Rosenberg, Judge Dave Reed, and Volunteer —  Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral (Image: courtesy photos)

Said requests were emailed to Mrs. Lea Rosenberg (wife of David Rosenberg aka Dave Rosenberg), and included a proviso by which the undersigned offered to pay for reasonable costs for any copying and mailing costs incurred in relation to this request.

To date, no responses have been received by me to this request to produce the tax returns, despite the clear mandate by the Internal Revenue Service to fully comply with such requests within 30 days.

As such, reluctantly, the undersigned makes this referral based on grave concerns dealing with suspicious circumstances surrounding Davis Odd Fellows’ board of directors (see http://davislodge.org/odd-fellows-hall-board/ ), President – Dave Rosenberg ,Vice President – Dave Reed, Treasurer – Barb Geisler, Secretary – Lea Rosenberg, as well as other non-profit entities controlled by Lea and David Rosenberg to wit, Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Sunrise Rotary Club , and the newly form non-profit entity Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc./Orphan Scholarship Fund.

More specifically, the concern relates to the fact that in recent years almost all the non profits entities controlled by Lea and Dave Rosenberg began to almost exclusively raise funds for “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County.

For example, Davis Odd Fellows held an event to benefit foster youth known as ” Breakfast with Santa”. Soroptimist International of Davis held an event to benefit foster youth known as “Texas Hold ‘Em”. Davis Rebekah Lodge held an event to benefit foster youth known as “Crab Feed.”

As mentioned above, In addition to “Breakfast with Santa”, Davis Odd Fellows recently launched an ad hoc non-profit to benefit foster youth known as Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc./Orphan Scholarship Fund.

While certainly the cause of supporting orphans and foster youth is worthy of praise, grave concerns exist that under the auspices of helping foster youth, money is instead actually laundered and being used for improper purposes, including , but not limited, to bribing or attempting to gain the favor of the foreperson of Yolo County’s Grand Jury (Barbara Sommer) who, coincidently, also heads a non-profit entity designated to house “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” known as Progress Ranch.

Additional facts that raise suspicions are that both Dave Rosenberg and Dave Reed are judges of Yolo County Superior Court; Dave Rosenberg is a close confederate of an attorney (Howard Dickstein) who represents an Indian Casino located in Yolo County (Cache Creek Casino); Cache Creek Casino also recently developed an unexplained desire to benefit “foster youth” through a huge donation to benefit “foster youth”; and that in recent years Yolo County’s Grand Jury (headed by Barbara Sommer of Progress Ranch) was investigating Cache Creek Casino.

As such, I urge you to investigate this matter and impose appropriate sanctions against any and all involved, if supported by the results of your investigation.

I look forward to your response. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

++++++++

According to YR, “On June 14, 2013, I filed a C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge to Judge David Reed stemming from his association with Judge David and Lea Rosenberg, his associations with Davis Odd Fellow and Davis Rebekah Lodge, the fact that I had filed an IRS complaint against those entities, and because of the media exposure on Davis Patch. This Challenge was denied by Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge Valle Israels, incorporated herein by reference.

Subsequent to the filing of the Challenge, and while awaiting a ruling by Judge Israels on the matter, I became concerned about what I believed were further acts of fraud and deceit perpetrated by Odd Fellows Home of California in connection with Judge Dave Reed, Judge Dave Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, and Vic Bucher.

Specifically, my concerns related to what I perceived as an attempt to improperly distance Judge David Reed, on one hand, from Judge David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, and Vic Bucher, on the other hand. As such, on July 17, 2013, I sent Odd Fellows Home of California a cease and desist demand.

In reply to the “cease and desist”, I received 3 replies. Two replies originated from Mr. Gerald Poarch,informing me that the “update” will “occur after the Board elects its new Officers, which will occur at the July 27, 2013 meeting.” Mr. Poarch also informed me that the personal treasurer of Judge David Rosenberg’s judicial campaign (Mr. Vic Bucher) is presiding until the election of new officers. The third reply came from Mr. Don Smith (see Exhibit 4), also informing me that the website will be updated to reflect the election of Judge David Reed as director of Odd Fellow Home of California only after the July 27, 2013 board meeting.

The information contained in Paragraph 4 of this document is in marked contradiction to information received both by me and the Court from Judge David Reed who previously asserted, repeatedly, that he was elected to the board of Odd Fellow Home of California (a multi-million dollar retirement facility) during a meeting held during the month of May.

In addition, although I became aware of the information previously but did not think much of it, subsequent to my discovery dealing with the above described events , I am now concerned about potential further misrepresentations, concealment, deceit, and fraud on the Court perpetrated by Judge David Reed in connection with his failure to previously disclose his very recent role as “Grand Conductor” of the California Grand Lodge – the entity supervising Davis Odd Fellow and Davis Odd Fellow Hall.

Simply put, Judge David Reed never disclosed to me (or to Judge Valle Israels) the fact that he served as “Grand Conductor” of the Grand Lodge despite multiple opportunities to do so, and despite
knowing full well that this may be an important fact for the Court’s consideration in determining whether to grant the C.C.P. § 170.1 Verified Challenge. Instead, similar to the events which necessitated the “cease and desist” request, the various parties (Judge David Reed, Judge David Rosenberg, Vic Bucher, and the various Odd Fellow outfits) stooped to misleading the public by quickly removing the name of Judge David Reed as “Grand Conductor” and replacing it with the name of Glenn Lindsey (see http://caioof.org/grand-lodge-officers ) in what could be considered an attempt to distance Judge Reed from the decision of Davis Odd Fellow to not comply with the IRS rules and regulations.

In connection with the allegations mentioned in Paragraph 7 of this Second Verified Challenge, the undersigned asks that an evidentiary hearing be scheduled to further explore the facts surrounding this alleged act of fraud i.e. exact dates Judge David Reed served as “Grand Conductor,” and the reason the name of Judge Reed was quickly replaced with the name of Glenn Lindsey on the website.”

END OF REPORT

TIMELINE – January of 2012: Kandice Fowler takes oath as first female “noble grand” of the Davis Odd Fellows [TLR Note: 1. noble grand = president 2. Prior to Fowler , Yolo County Superior Court Judge Dave Reed served as president 3. According to YR, article relevant due to failure of Judge Reed to disclose, under oath, his role as president despite complaint to IRS against Lea Rosenberg for failure to produce 990 forms DATING BACK TO 2010 — WHILE DAVID REED SERVED AS PRESIDENT 4. As a reminder, Judge Reed also failed to disclose his role as “Grand Conductor” of the Grand Lodge 5. See more @: http://seenthis.net/messages/168652

About 100 members and friends of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge attended a formal installation and awards dinner at the lodge hall Saturday evening. The elected and appointed officers for 2012 were installed and annual awards were presented.

Kandice Fowler took her oath of office as the new noble grand of Davis Odd Fellows Lodge No. 169. Other elected officers are Bob Schelen, vice grand; Ann Carroll, secretary; Penny Smith, treasurer; and Steve Lopez, financial secretary.

Fowler succeeds outgoing Noble Grand Dave Reed,  who served two terms in that office.

Conducting the installation ceremony were Rod Metoyer, deputy grand master of the California Grand Lodge, assisted by Rick Boyles, grand warden of the California Grand Lodge, and Dave Rosenberg, past grand of the Davis lodge……

…….

“It has been my pleasure to lead this vibrant organization for two years,” Reed said in the news release. “I’m very proud of all we have accomplished in that time for the community and for the lodge.”

Reed cited in particular the World’s Greatest Bicycle Parade, which set a Guinness world record and raised $17,500 for the Davis schools; the Hope for Haiti event, which raised almost $25,000 for earthquake relief in Haiti; and the numerous events held at the Lodge to benefit community groups.

Davis Odd Fellow Dave Rosenberg: Odd Fellows Faces Fraternal Mortality [ TLR Note: 1) Ipso Facto, Rosenberg Admits Odd Fellow = “Secret Society”. 2) Photo of Grave – Disqueiting ] ]

From time to time I enjoy looking through old books or historical sketches on the Internet regarding the Odd Fellows, it’s origin and evolution. And I often chuckle to hear some members of this great Order disdain “change” and believe that the way we do things in this Order today must remain essentially inviolate from the way we have been doing it for the past 20, 30, 40 or 50 years. They view the word “change” as if it were profane and antithetical to Odd Fellowship. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Change, brothers and sisters, is the historical norm for Odd Fellowship. This Order has evolved time and time again, to fit its times. And, now this Order – in 2013 – comes face-to-face with its own fraternal “mortality.” As the membership numbers in lodges dwindle to historical lows, we must again evolve and change to fit our age and entice the new young members we require.

For those who continue to doubt that change is the custom and pattern of our Order, allow me to quote some excerpts from an Internet article I read only yesterday:

“The Odd Fellows or Oddfellows are second only to the freemasons as a long-established and still reasonably healthy fraternal organization or secret society. They have, however, been subject to many schisms, and the number of members today is unclear. The date of foundation is likewise unclear, but it was presumably prior to 1745 when the first recorded Lodge of Odd Fellows met at various London taverns, including the Oakley Arms in Southwark; the Globe in Hatton Garden; and the Boar’s Head in Smithfield. Dues were a penny a visit. The purpose is as obscure as the origin of the name, but the society seems to have combined the functions of a modern working men’s club – that is, offering a place for reliable food and drink at a good price – with a degree of self-help. The members, who were mostly working men, would pass the hat to help a fellow in distress and would provide an out-of-work member with a card that entitled him to accommodation at other lodges until he found work. Most members were originally mechanics and artisans, though is seems that anyone who could afford a penny for the dues was admitted.

In the late 18th century, many individual lodges were prosecuted by the Crown on the grounds of potential sedition and were closed (this was the period of the French Revolution and the rebellion of the American colonies), but the order as a whole survived. Some Odd Fellows lodges seem to have arisen at around this time as a result of disaffected Freemasons seceding from their parent order; these coalesced into the Ancient and Honorable Loyal Order of Odd Fellows. At the same time, most other Odd Fellows’ lodges amalgamated into the Patriotic Order of Odd Fellows, which later became known as the United or Union Order of Odd Fellows. London remained the seat of the order.

Yolo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Raven displays the Prosecutor of the Year award

At the recent Law Enforcement and Community Recognition Dinner, District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) named Yolo County Chief Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Raven as the inaugural recipient of the Prosecutor of the Year award. The MADD California Prosecutor of the Year award is presented to one prosecutor who has made a significant impact in one or multiple cases and worked closely with MADD.

Judy Utter, MADD Senior Victim Services Specialist, spoke highly of Mr Raven’s efforts and the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office’s contributions to furthering MADD’s mission and theme of the night – eradicating DUIs one step at a time.

District Attorney Jeff Reisig, who is a strong proponent of MADD and who is committed to eliminating the risk that DUI drivers pose to the community, stated, “Jonathan’s continuing commitment to the fight against impaired drivers and his deep compassion for victims of crime are just a few of the reasons this award was so deserved. The entire Yolo County District Attorney’s Office is extremely proud of Jonathan!”

As such, reluctantly, the undersigned makes this referral based on grave concerns dealing with suspicious circumstances surrounding Davis Odd Fellows’ board of directors (see http://davislodge.org/odd-fellows-hall-board/ ), President – Dave Rosenberg ,Vice President – Dave Reed, Treasurer – Barb Geisler, Secretary – Lea Rosenberg, as well as other non-profit entities controlled by Lea and David Rosenberg to wit, Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Sunrise Rotary Club , and the newly form non-profit entity Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc./Orphan Scholarship Fund.

More specifically, the concern relates to the fact that in recent years almost all the non profits entities controlled by Lea and Dave Rosenberg began to almost exclusively raise funds for “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County.

For example, Davis Odd Fellows held an event to benefit foster youth known as ” Breakfast with Santa”. Soroptimist International of Davis held an event to benefit foster youth known as “Texas Hold ‘Em”. Davis Rebekah Lodge held an event to benefit foster youth known as “Crab Feed.”

As mentioned above, In addition to “Breakfast with Santa”, Davis Odd Fellows recently launched an ad hoc non-profit to benefit foster youth known as Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc./Orphan Scholarship Fund.

While certainly the cause of supporting orphans and foster youth is worthy of praise, grave concerns exist that under the auspices of helping foster youth, money is instead actually laundered and being used for improper purposes, including , but not limited, to bribing or attempting to gain the favor of the foreperson of Yolo County’s Grand Jury (Barbara Sommer) who, coincidently, also heads a non-profit entity designated to house “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” known as Progress Ranch.

Additional facts that raise suspicions are that both Dave Rosenberg and Dave Reed are judges of Yolo County Superior Court; Dave Rosenberg is a close confederate of an attorney (Howard Dickstein) who represents an Indian Casino located in Yolo County (Cache Creek Casino); Cache Creek Casino also recently developed an unexplained desire to benefit “foster youth” through a huge donation to benefit “foster youth”; and that in recent years Yolo County’s Grand Jury (headed by Barbara Sommer of Progress Ranch) was investigating Cache Creek Casino.

As such, I urge you to investigate this matter and impose appropriate sanctions against any and all involved, if supported by the results of your investigation.

I look forward to your response. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Odd Fellows Hall Board

The Hall Board Association is a California Corporation formed around 1956, soon after the current Odd Fellows Lodge Hall was built. The Hall Board Association was formed by the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge (called Yolo Lodge in those days) and the Davis Rebekah Lodge. The Hall Board Association is composed of six members, three from each Lodge. The three elected Trustees of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and the three elected Trustees of the Davis Rebekah Lodge are the six members. The Trustees are elected by each Lodge to three-year terms, and the elections are staggered.

The Hall Board Association is the actual owner of the Davis Lodge Hall, as well as the adjacent property of the two Lodges. In addition to the Lodge Hall, the Hall Board Association is the owner (and landlord) of rental property currently occupied by Hunan Chinese Restaurant (voted the best Chinese Restaurant in Davis) and Coldwell-Banker Doug Arnold Real Estate (Davis’ largest real estate broker). The Hall Board Association manages the Lodge Hall and the two rental properties. Assisting the Hall Board is the Operations Manager, a contractor of the Hall Board, Dody Black. Assistant to the Operations Manager is Greg Simmons. Both Dody and Greg are Odd Fellows. The Hall Board also contracts with On-Site Assistants who supervise rental events at the Lodge Hall. All fixtures and furniture are also owned by and managed by the Hall Board.

Woodland’s Daily Democrat: Yolo judge Dave Rosenberg elected Grand Warden of California Odd Fellows [ TLR Note: As mentioned before, Stage 1 of CalALL scheme involved Judicial Council members Thomas Girardi, Joe Dunn, and most likely Tani Cantil – friend of Ruthe Ashley. Stage 2 involved UC Irvine Foundation’s Joe Dunn, Erwin Chemerinsky, current Judicial Council member Mark Robinson. As such, suspicion exists that current Judicial Council member’s Rosenberg “cleared way” for search warrant at home of Yolo County-based Rabbi who unearthed CalALL scheme. In Addition, Rosenberg is a long time confederate of Howard Dickstein. As recently unearthed, Dickstein’s wife (Jeannine English) as well as Dickstein’s business partner and co-defendant (Fulcrum Property’s Mark Friedman) also part of CalALL scheme — further casting suspicion on Rosenberg. Moreover, prima facie evidence now exist to suspect Dave Rosenberg (and wife Lea Rosenberg, Judge Dave Reed, Vic Bucher) independently part of financial machinations involving Davis Odd Fellow, Davis Rebekah Lodge, among other entities, in connection with fund raising to support “foster youth” — code for Progress Ranch headed by Barbara Sommer — who investigated Cache Creek Casino while acting as foreperson of Yolo County Grand Jury. 2. Recently, Yolo County-based Rabbi asked IRS to investigate Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellow due to failure of Lea Rosenberg to comply with request for production of documents — said failure further circumstantial prima facie evidence/ fodder to suspect Lea and Dave Rosenberg engage in myriad financial crimes. Also suspect, as article below mentioned, is fact Dave Rosenberg is the current secretary of Davis Rebekah Lodge — an all female entity purpose of which to support women. ]

Long-time Davis Odd Fellow Dave Rosenberg has been elected Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge of California, Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

The election was held last Friday during Grand Lodge Sessions in Sacramento, with representatives from over 120 Odd fellows Lodges from throughout California.

Four candidates vied for the office and Rosenberg was elected on the first ballot. Grand Warden is the No. 3 position in Odd Fellow leadership, serving a one-year term, and then moving up to Deputy Grand Master, and then Grand Master of California.

Rosenberg served four terms as Noble Grand (President) of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and is generally credited with rebuilding that Lodge to be one of the premier Odd Fellows Lodges in the country. Rosenberg also serves as Chief Patriarch of the Davis Encampment, as Captain of the Davis Canton, as Secretary of the Davis Rebekah Lodge, and as President of the Hall Board Association. He has previously served as a District Deputy Grand Master for the Odd Fellows and as Chair of the Grand Lodge Judiciary Committee. Rosenberg also served two terms as Chairman of the Odd Fellows Homes of California Board of Directors, which operates two large retirement campuses in Napa and in Saratoga. Locally, Rosenberg continues to serve as Chair of the Membership & Initiation Committee of the Davis Lodge and serves as a member of the Good Fellowship Committee and the Bingo Committee.

On April 4 , 2013, the Davis Odd Fellows, Soroptimist International of Davis, and Davis Rebekah Lodge were duly served with a request for production of the three latest IRS Form 990, Form 990 Schedule A, as well as Form 1023.

Odd Fellows Homes of California

Saratoga Retirement Home - IOOF

Saratoga Retirement Community

An Impressive History is claimed by the Odd Fellows Homes of California dating back to 1893 when provisions were made for the establishment of the first Odd Fellows Home in California. That first Home was located at Thermalito, Butte County, three miles from Oroville. The move from Thermalito to a new Odd Fellows Home in Saratoga, Santa Clara County, occurred on November 18, 1912. For nearly 100 years Odd Fellows, their widows and Rebekahs have resided at the Saratoga Home.

Originally Two Home Boards – With the purchase in 1992 of The Meadows of Napa Valley, the Odd Fellows of California became owners of two retirement homes managed and operated by two separate non-profit corporations – Odd Fellows Homes of California and Odd Fellows Housing of Napa.

The Meadows in Napa Valley

The Meadows of Napa Valley

The Home Boards Merge into one corporation as the Odd Fellows Homes of California, incorporated as a 501 (3) (c) non-profit corporation. The combined board originally had 17 Directors, but the number of Directors has been reduced gradually until there are now 13 Directors including the Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer.

Visit the Saratoga Retirement Community website and the Meadows of Napa Valley website for detailed information about the two retirement Homes operated by the Odd Fellows Homes of California

Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows, Lea Rosenberg, David Rosenberg, and David Reed Hereby Given Opportunity to Comment on Complaint Submitted to IRS by Yolo County-based Rabbi

Consistent with our commitment to integrity and adherence to the highest level of ethical journalism, and in order to report on both sides of a story while affording those involved the opportunity to comment , The Leslie Brodie Report hereby asked Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows, Lea Rosenberg,  David Rosenberg, and David Reed to comment on complaint Yolo County-based Rabbi (“YR”) had submitted to the Internal Revenue Service.

The Leslie Brodie Report Mulls Liaising with Champion of Justice Dr Joe Zernik for Purpose of Understating Reason Large Number of Jews Stand Accused of Greed, Financial Shenanigans and Myriad Schemes [ TLR Note: To date, TLR managed to document close to 80 California Jews (mostly member of JNC Cabal) who are either presently under scrutiny or those previously accused of misconduct 2. Conventional wisdom provides the following reasons a) Bay Area based-Orthodox Rabbi (not YR) avers lack of anti-Semitism in California, unaware population/ population shift/ disappearances of White middle-class/ support of large corporation, and relative anonymity of modern society allow some Jews to operate with impunity. Shockingly, said Rabbi believes “little” anti-Semitism is a “good thing” to keep Jews on their toes. b) source of problem — because of anti-Semitism/ Pogroms/ Holocaust/ Oppression, some Jews — mostly Eastern-European — developed various mechanism (greed, trickery, sense of humor, political ideas, shyster personality, penchant for “air professions” ) in order to survive — theory of Benjamin Disraeli]

Previously, in response to a request by The Leslie Brodie Report (“TLR”), Dr. Joseph Zernik provided a short review of the history of the corruption in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, highlighting the Iran-Contra Scandal, the Rampart Scandal, and corruption within U.S. District Court in Los Angeles as key causes of the corruption.

See interview @:

http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2011/08/29/fascinating-historical-overview-of-widespread-fraud-in-the-los-angeles-court-system-by-dr-joseph-zernik-11746814/

Now, TLR mulls asking Dr. Zernik to opine on the reason many of the key players in said corruption happened to be members of the Jewish faith. For example:

Sandor Samuels of Bet Tzedek
Sandor “Sandy” Samuels —  President & CEO of Bet Tzedek of Los Angeles.  Former senior executive and chief legal officer at Countrywide Financial Corporation.  A RICO suit alleges that Samuels was appointed President and CEO of Bet Tzedek largely due to his working knowledge of how to operate an enterprise which engages in myriad financial crimes.

Alex Kozinski
Judge Alex Kozinski — trail of grave misconduct include a) supporter of “The Malek Manual” – whereas concerned citizens who follow the plight of American whistleblowers in exposing fraud, corruption, incompetence, waste and abuse usually find themselves on the receiving end of wanton investigations, malicious prosecutions and warrantless surveillance. b) appointment of Rory Little as special prosecutor in matter of In Re Girardi despite clear conflict of interest. c) obstruction of justice in refusing to process complaint against Judge Morrison England  d) “judge shopping” in matters relating to whistleblower Dan Dydzak.

John Goldman
John Goldman —  lives in Atherton with his wife, Marcia . All Former — Chairman of Willis Insurance Services of California, Inc. ; Chief Executive Officer of Richard N. Goldman & Co., an insurance brokerage firm; president of Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco ). Penchant for supporting African-American political candidates. Handler of Democratic Party’s legal gladiator John Keker; disquieting ties to a) degenerate Chris Young of Keker & Van Nest/ Three-Card-Monte/ CaliforniaALL financial scheme b) alleged bribee Justice Kay Werdegar who was allegedly bribed vis-a-vis large donations to David Werdegar’s Institute of Aging aka “Goldman Institute of Aging” – originally named after John’s late father, Richard.  c) Cary Zellerbach of CaliforniaALL  scheme d)  UC Berkeley / SF Jewish Federation — Goldman Family practically controls both institutions. e) Freada Kapor Klein / Gibor Basri of CaliforniaALL scheme / UC Berkeley Foundation. f) Dianne Feinstein and husband – UC Regent Richard Blum.   Some members of San Francisco’s Russian- Jewish community aver the Goldmans indirectly responsible for events surrounding Pogrom @ SF Synagogue and related “60 Days Suspension Scandal” — The Leslie Brodie Report’s Raison d’être.


Jack Citrin of UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) where Eric George serves as director.  Citrin under intense scrutiny for alleged money laundering from California Supreme Court Historical Society (where CaliforniaALL’s Ophelia Basgal of PG&E served as Treasurer) to UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) for the purpose of bribing Ex-Justice Joseph Grodin in re litigation involving PG&E. Alleged accomplices: Ronald George, Eric George, Joseph Grodin, Richard Blum, Jerry Falk, Douglas Winthrop, Amy Margolin, Kay Werdegar. For complete story, please see  HERE

Steven Hirsch and Jeffrey Chanin  of Keker & Van Nest
Steven Hirsch and Jeffrey Chanin of Keker & Van Nest.  Co-Conspirators Hirsch and Chanin part of Three-Card-Monte fraudulent scheme (which included among others: Jon Streeter, Chris Young, Jeannine English, Howard Dickstein)  to delete profile of associate CaliforniaALL’s Chris Young from website of Keker & Van Nest prior to agreeing to press false criminal charges against YR in re CaliforniaALL/ Sara Granda ethics complaint. Disquieting ties to John Goldman, JNC Cabal, Cary Zellerbach, and client Howard Dickstein.

Henry Weinstein  of UC Irvine/ Voice of OC
Henry Weinstein of UC Irvine School of Law / Voice of OC.  Mr. Weisntein is the former legal affairs reporter for the L.A. Times.  Part of “Phase 1” of CaliforniaALL financial scheme alongside UC Irvine Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Voice of OC, Cal Bar executive director Joe Dunn of Voice of OC, and former Voice of OC directors Thomas Girardi and James Brosnahan (operator of Tony West and Chris Young,; attorney and brain behind CaliforniaALL scheme, mastermind behind California Democratic Party.) Additionally, Weisntein part of conspiracy between Voice of OC, UC Irvine Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of Voice of OC, Joe Dunn of Voice of OC, former Voice of OC directors James Brosnahan and Thomas Girardi and others to press false criminal charges against Yolo County-based Rabbi who exposed CaliforniaALL financial scheme for purposes of intimidation and the execution of search warrant whereas all CaliforniaALL materials were confiscated by eight armed Yolo DA investigators. For more about Henry Weinstein , please see HERE

Ron Burkle of Yucaipa Companies
Ron Burkle of Yucaipa Companies. Disquieting ties to his attorneys Thomas Girardi and Ron Olson.  Allegedly hosted Ronald George on “Air Fuck One.” Controller of  Antonio Villaraigosa — alleged father of Lucy Armendariz’s daughter J.  Burkle, allegedly,  behind disbarment of late Phil Kay.

Cynthia Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton
David and Cynthia Pasternak of Pasternak Pasternak & Patton. Despite the fact that David Pasternak has been sued countless times (including twice for being an alleged “Racketeer”), The Leslie Brodie Report (“TLR”) urges the readers to exercise extreme caution and not jump to conclusions regarding misconduct by Cynthia and David Pasternak. In addition, to date, TLR hasn’t been made privy to any real evidence whatsoever which would tend to show Pasternaks engaged in any acts of misconduct. Nevertheless, Mr. Pasternak’s association with Bet Tzedek, as well as the appearance that he is part of the Girardi/George Syndicate is a source of concern.  In connection with some of Bet Tzedek’s alleged racketeering activities,  a suit maintained that Sandor Samuels — CEO and President of Bet Tzedek and former Chief Trial Counsel at embattled Countywide Financial Services — was appointed President and CEO of Bet Tzedek largely due to his working knowledge of how to operate an enterprise which engages in myriad financial crimes.  The suit also asserted that other individuals engaged in racketeering activities, including David Pasternak — a Los-Angeles based “receiver,” as well as an officer of both Bet Tzedek and the Chancery Club — who allegedly used Bet Tzedek as forum to meet, collude, and otherwise bribe various judges and lawyers for the purpose of further appointing Pasternak as “receiver.”

Robert Chick of Lawyers' Mutual Insurance Company
Laura and Robert Chick of Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company. Confirmed shyster Laura Chick has a “Jeannine English” problem, to wit, 1. Part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme (Chick only part of Obama for America while member of California Bar Board of Governors (“BOG”)) 2. Member of BOG to primarily serve financial interest of herself, her husband, and that of Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company – NOT to “protect the public” — i.e. ensure clients of California Lawyers’ Mutual Insurance Company NOT disciplined by the State Bar of California 3. Jeannine English disquieting ties to Gwen Moore similar to Chick’s disquieting ties to Karen Bass. | Ongoing civil inquiry seeks to implicate Chick in matters relating to misuse of $85 billion of Federal Recovery Act funding.


Ronald and Eric George. Disquieting ties to Tom Girardi, Girardi Syndicate, Howard Rice, Bet Tzedek, Alen Rothenberg, 1st. Century Bank. Eric George part of Mel Gibson extortion scheme.Charachteristics of MO: rely heavily on misuse of Asians, misuse of Tom Layton, vindictive, radioactive, my way or the highway. High on Ronald Goerge’s “Hit List” are: Judge David Lampe, Judge Maryanne Gillard, Yolo County-based Rabbi, Michael Paul, Leslie Brodie, Judicial Council Watcher, Peter Dion-Kindem and Dan Dydzak. Separately, when examining the circumstances surrounding the California Supreme Court Historical Society (“CSCHS”) and discovering the presence of PG&E; PG&E’s Ophelia Basgal of CaliforniaALL, who served as the “Treasurer” of CSCHS; Amy Margolin, and private judge Joseph Grodin, whose legal opinion Bill Lockyer and Jerry Brown relied upon in deciding to dismiss the case against PG&E, it is difficult not to question whether any misconduct has taken place in this setting given the prior history between Howard Rice and PG&E. Adding fuel to the fire is the recent discovery that CSCHS — while headed by the embattled Ronald George — seeks financial donations, some of which it later forwarded to an entity known as the Institute of Governmental Studies (“IGS”), where Eric George (son of Ronald George) serves as a director.  Previously, a RICO suit alleged that Ronald George unlawfully transferred funds from entities that were under his control (such as the California Administrative Office of the Courts (“AOC”) intended for the CCMS computer system) into various accounts that were specifically maintained in Alan Rothenberg’s bank — 1st Century,  a bank which Eric George owns in part. Said funds, as the suit alleged, were later embezzled.  As part of maintaining the scheme, the suit alleges, AOC employees Ronald Overholt and William Vickery were bestowed with various gifts, trips, kickbacks, bribes, excessive salaries, and the like. Similarly, and also as part of guarding the scheme, the suit alleges that defendants, at times, resorted to utilizing the services of Tom Layton — a former Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff/Senior State Bar of California investigator — to “illegally gather detrimental dirt” on various individuals who would oppose and/or object to the existence of said arrangements.  According to sources, Tom Layton is part of an ongoing “ambulance chasing” scheme that the Girardi Syndicate operates in San Bernardino County vis-a-vis a satellite office located in San Bernardino and managed by Thomas Girardi’s son-in-law, David Lira.


Munger Tolles & Olson’s Jeffrey Bleich, Henry Weissmann, Brad Phillips: All three are part of California Bar/CPUC/Utility money connection, to wit, CaliforniaALL, CCPF.  Similar to Ronald George/Bet Tzedek, favorite MO (including that of Ron Olson) is to hide behind/misuse racial minorities (i.e. Blacks, Asians)

John Roos of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Mark Parnes
John Roos and Mark Parnes of Wilson Sonsini.  Both Roos and Parnes part of CaliforniaALL financial scheme and with close ties to OBAMA FOR AMERICA.  Relatively speaking, both are typical of Sonsini Syndicate’s MO, to wit, non-radioactive, attitude of live and let live, resourceful, and highly effective operatives. Similar to Ron Olson (and unlike Dave Rosenberg) favorite MO – stealth, stay out of limelight.


David, Justice Kay and Matt Werdegar. RICO defendant David Werdegar is the former Chief Executive Officer of the Institute on Aging and husband of California Supreme Court Associate Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar (aka Kay Mickle). Prior to the commencement of the RICO action, David Werdegar abruptly quit his position following reports on TLR of alleged improprieties involving himself, his wife, and his son Matt Werdegar – a partner at the litigation boutique Keker & Van Nest, headed by controversial litigator John Keker. Matt also part of Three-Card-Monte conspiracy by Keker & Van Nest to remove profile of degenerate associate Chris Young (of CaliforniaALL, to wit, Obama for America, Mark Friedman-Alison Turner-Kevin Johnson’s Mayoral Campaign, USDOJ’s Tony West, White-House Special Counsel Jeff Bleich) from firm’s web site. (images and narrative: courtesy)

Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property
Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property. In the context of CaliforniaALL fraudulent financial scheme, extremely disquieting ties to Chris Young of Keker & Van Nest, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, CPA Alison Turner, UC Davis, Gilles Attia, Howard Dickstein and spouse Jeannine English. Separately, Friedman a named defendant (in suit against Howard Dickstein, Arlen Opper) in connection with alleged scheme to defraud Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation / Cache Creek Casino. Similar to Opper and Dickstein, Friedman’s public relation MO — projects image of one who “admires” the Arts. Subsequent to events surrounding Chris Young – Three-Card-Monte, interest in Friedman has grown exponentially.


Yolo County Superior Court Judge David and Lea Rosenberg.  Rosenbergs remain under intense scrutiny in connection with: a) circumstances surrounding familiar faces and a familiar casino in the context of a relatively unknown Davis-based non-profit entity, Progress Ranch headed by Barbara Sommer b)  four or five non-profits commandeered by Lea and David Rosenberg (Soroptimist International of Davis , Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows, Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc., and possibly Davis Sunrise Rotary Club) devoted unusual and, indeed, at times exclusive attention to financially benefit “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County. c) alleged “fixing” of case of Ryan Clifford v. UC Davis Jewish Fraternity  d) matter of Clint Parish ; threat against Clint Parish ; use of Robo-Call e) disquieting ties to Vic Bucher, Judge Dan Maguire, Judge Dave Reed, Judicial Council’s Tani Cantil and Mark Robinson of UCI Foundation/ CaliforniaALL fraudulent financial scheme.

Loren Kieve of Kieve Law Offices
Loren Kieve of Kieve Law Offices. Kieve, 65, with extremely disquieting ties to James Brosnahan of MoFo and shady “Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights of the Bay Area.” A co-conspirator (alongside Gwen Moore, Raj Chatterjee, and others) in unlawful agreement to press false criminal charges  and otherwise retaliate against  Yolo County-based YR in re State Bar of California ethics complaint.

More from California Consumer Activist Mike Knell on CPUC Corruption, Michael Peevey, Geoffrey Brown’s Girlfriend [TLR Note: 1. As reminder, R & R (rogue/repugnant) Geoffrey Brown appointed CPUC Commissioner by Gray Davis — one and same Davis who appointed Dave Rosenberg to California Lottery Commission 2. It is difficult to say whether such corruption was prevalent in prior years /other states, or is it a phenomenon which started around time Gwen Moore, California Democrats (i.e. Geoffrey Brown) saw an opportunity to launder utility money to Democratic Party causes. 3. TLR’s readers must internalize CPUC corruption impacts every Californian – not just Mike Knell. 4. In any event, soon TLR to publish story in re events surrounding Ron Olson and Company, CPUC, Klamath

Recently, a confidential report about the CPUC was leaked to the public. It is bad news for the CPUC. See: http://www.mercurynews.com/california-budget/ci_23048161/california-legislators-blast-public-utilities-commission

I have first hand experience with Geoffrey Brown, as he was the Commissioner assigned to a Formal Complaint I filed against AT&T back in 2001 (it should be noted that I have never met or spoken to Geoffrey Brown). The Formal Complaint dragged on for over two years.

Initially, The Judge had scheduled 3-days for cross-examination.
As it became known that I had photographed proprietary AT&T documents (which proved AT&T committed frauds to conceal problems in its infrastructure), the Judge Ruled there would be no cross-examination, and that the Testimony and Briefs would be submitted in writing. When I asked her why, she replied, “It was not my Decision.” (I now believe Geoffrey Brown had made the Decision).

Among many other violations to law, I was able to prove AT&T was repeatedly altering records to conceal problems with its underground infrastructure, and that AT&T was knowingly using defective phone lines on my street.
The smoking gun, which proved AT&T had violated laws, was a photograph of my phone number, which received service through a phone line that was known to be defective.
The minimum fine for the violations linked to using defective phone line (and punishing me for complaining to the Commission), would would have exceeded $5 million, and the money would have gone to the State General Fund. The fines could have exceeded $100 million.

When the written Decision came out in 2003, I couldn’t believe what I was reading — the Commission ignored almost all of the evidence. It should be noted that Peevey became President of the CPUC a few months earlier.

I filed an Appeal. In response, AT&T declared that the phone number that received service from the defective phone line, was not my phone number. http://mikeandmabell.com/FBI/History-Fictional-Number.html

After the Decision to the Appeal came out, a legal expert (who is now a CPUC Judge) sent an email, describing exactly what I needed to write in an Application for Rehearing, to address that the CPUC violated the Rule of Law, when it refused to impose fines for violations to my privacy. http://mikeandmabell.com/FBI/History-More_Info-2.html

See Application for Rehearing: http://mikeandmabell.com/FBI/History-More_Info-6k.html

The CPUC denied my Application for Rehearing.

Initially, I thought the Judge and other long-time employees had hidden the information I presented, from the Commissioners.
In 2007, after a phone repair expert told me that AT&T lied about the meanings of the trouble codes on my business lines, I contacted the FBI. Long-story short, the FBI told me, “Attorneys lie, Judges are corrupt. Let it go.” I do have letters and emails from the FBI. See this one from 2008:
http://www.mikeandmabell.com/FBI/images/FBI_3-28-08.jpg

After the failures of the CPUC led to a gas pipeline failure that burned down a neighborhood and killed eight people, I contacted the Executive Director, requesting to meet with him. http://www.aphonenumberforthepresident.com/phonenumberforpresident-40.html

Ten days later, the State Police showed up at my front door. The Police were professional, and I was not arrested. The police did tell me, “You need to be careful.” It was not a threat, it was a warning.

In reading through the “arrest report”, I saw evidence that the Judge had been coerced into filing a false report.
See arrest report: http://www.aphonenumberforthepresident.com/phonenumberforpresident-33.html

One important line in the “arrest report” is the statement by the Judge:
“Also, the PUC normally does not impose fines for individual issues, unless a claim of the same nature is filed by numerous individuals.”

After the Yolo Rabbi discovered the money trail linked to CaliforniaALL and CCPF, I came to the conclusion that Geoffrey Brown and Michael Peevery are corrupt, and are responsible for the corrupt Decision, and the refusal to impose fines.

It should also be noted that Geoffrey Brown is the cousin of Governor Jerry Brown. Geoffrey Brown still hangs out at the CPUC with Peevey, and his Chief of Staff.
Peevey’s Chief of Staff is Geoffrey Brown’s girlfriend, and he travels with her and Peevey, when the Utilities pay for lavish trips. http://www.turn.org/archive/item/223-the-secret-life-of-michael-peevey.html

Numerous people have been asking Governor Jerry Brown to replace Michael Peevey. Nobody can understand why Governor Brown has not done so. I believe the Yolo Rabbi discovered the reason when he discovered CaliforniaALL.
I will say for the record that Geoffrey Brown is corrupt, and he obstructed justice in the Formal Complaint I filed back in 2001, by refusing to follow the Rule of Law.

Santa and his Elves get ready for the hundreds of people coming to breakfast at the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge.

Breakfast With Santa Delivers Lots Of Fun

Today the Davis Odd Fellows completed our seventh annual Breakfast with Santa in downtown Davis. It was a great success. We heard nothing but compliments and saw nothing but smiles from the 350 children and families who enjoyed the morning. Folks in Davis, CA really look forward to Breakfast with Santa – tickets all sell out in two weeks or less.

We have so many people to thank, but especially the world’s best Santa, our own Doug Hatton. Thank you also to his wife and Santa Manager Margee, and the 8 young ladies who were the elves. The kitchen and cooking crew headed by John Geisler and Barb Geisler were just great – hard-working from 6 a.m. and constantly cranking out the pancakes, sausages and other goodies. Thank you to our excellent photographer, Ernesto Sandoval, and Dee Clark from Woodstock’s who served her famous Cinna-Bread. We had some 50 volunteers from our Lodges who worked in shifts from 7 this morning till about 1 p.m. this afternoon. Thank you to Sharla Cheney who, once again, was our volunteer coordinator, and Dave Rosenberg, once again our volunteer wrangler and PR guy. Everyone pitched in filling goodie bags, decorating the tables, serving, cleaning, and doing all the tasks that need to be done to pull off this event. This year we tried something different and had three volunteer shifts, rather than two – thus involving even more members of our Lodges. We also had a special clean-up crew of volunteers to handle the kitchen. It takes MANY hands to put on this big show. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers:

And, once again, we received applications from folks who attended Breakfast with Santa, and now want to join the Odd Fellows and Rebekah Lodges. They want to join because they see the great community spirit of our Lodges and members.

We also appreciate the merchants, like the Davis Coop, Woodstock’s Pizza, Mezzeta Foods and Puroast Coffee, who donated all the food supplies. And thank you to the many donors who contributed over $3,000 to help our efforts – donors like Edward Jones Inc. and David Cougevan, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Wochok Group, the Law Offices of Raquel Silva, the Law Offices of Roberta Savage, Supervisor Don Saylor, Retired Supervisor Helen Thomson, Davis Ace Hardware, Davis Waste Removal, First Northern Bank, Tandem Properties, Hanlees Nissan of Davis, and others. We also thank Avid Reader and Common Grounds who have sold tickets for us for many years.

The proceeds from Breakfast with Santa are used to benefit foster children in our community, and young adults who have recently left the foster system.

We look forward to the eighth annual Breakfast with Santa in 2013. (Once we rest up.)

Barbara Sommer (who currently serves as the president of Progress Ranch; President of California Grand Jurors’ Association – Yolo County Chapter) is being looked into for indications of whether she may have been the recipient of questionable gifts during a time period when she served concurrently as Treasurer of Progress Ranch and Foreperson of Yolo County’s Grand Jury in order to influence the outcome of various legal proceedings, and especially a Grand Jury investigation of Cache Creek Casino located in Yolo County.The rapidly expanding multi-prong civil inquiry, conducted by TLR’s confederate — Yolo County’s YR –also views Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, Chairman Marshall McKay, and attorney Howard Dickstein as parties who may potentially have a played a role in the scheme, although this investigation is continuing.A source familiar with the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity, maintains that evidence shows that for a period of several years, four or five non-profits commandeered by Lea and David Rosenberg (Soroptimist International of Davis , Davis Rebekah Lodge, Davis Odd Fellows, Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc., and possibly Davis Sunrise Rotary Club) devoted unusual and, indeed, at times exclusive attention to financially benefit “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County.For example, Lea and David Rosenberg (at times, with the assistance of Judge David Reed and CPA Victor Bucher) raised funds to support foster youth by mobilizing Davis Odd Fellows (“Breakfast with Santa”), Soroptimist International of Davis (“Texas Hold ‘Em” ), Davis Rebekah Lodge (“Crab Feed”), and Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc. (“Orphan Scholarship Fund”).

Also being looked into are Gretchen Peralta and Allison and Robert Woolley. Both Peralta and Robert Wooley are directors of Progress Ranch. Allison Wooley sold tickets to “Texas Hold’ Em”.

Progress Ranch is a non-profit public benefit, Section 510(c)(3) agency providing residential treatment services for troubled children.

Judicial Council Watcher Reader Dubbed “Lando” Oddly Avers Yolo County Superior Court Judge/ Judicial Council Member Dave Rosenberg “Should Not Be The Subject of Attacks on His Honesty and Character” on Judicial Council Watcher Website

Amid growing controversy over Lea and David Rosenberg, and following on the heels of an article published by Judicial Council Watcher dealing with alleged improprieties by Judge David Rosenberg in the matter of  Ryan Clifford v. UC Davis Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) Jewish fraternity, a reader and frequent commentator of Judicial Council Watcher is now of the opinion that the “honesty and character” of Judge David Rosenberg should not be the subject of attacks on this website.(Judicial Council Watcher’s website) .

Specifically, “Lando” wrote: “JCW we need to please be fair on this blog. I respectfully disagree with some of Judge Rosenberg’s positions in support of the AOC and he may tend to be too long winded at times but the post about him above isn’t right. While we disagree on policy matters he should not be the subject of attacks on his honesty and character on this website. We need to focus on the issue at hand, the reformation of the Judicial Council and reduction of the AOC budget. ”

Lando’s comments comes in the midst of a growing controversy over the former foreperson of Yolo County’s Grand Jury who has been identified as a potential wrongdoer in a civil inquiry into the peculiar circumstances surrounding familiar faces and a familiar casino in the context of a relatively unknown Davis-based non-profit entity, Progress Ranch.

Barbara Sommer — Fascinated by Fungi [ TLR Notes: 1. Barbara Sommer presently under intense scrutiny in re machinations involving Lea and David Rosenberg, Progress Ranch, Cache Creek Casino, Yolo County Grand Jury, etc. 2. Part of studying/ profiling Sommer — hard to miss countless articles re fascination of mushrooms. Also, hard to miss similarities to a couple previously scrutinized by TLR – Mitchell Kapor and Freada Kapor-Klein (whereas TLR/YR established beyond doubt Freada’s involvement with CaliforniaALL financial scheme, and related acts of fraud) i.e. both Sommers Psychology profs at UC Davis, similar hobbies, etc. 3. Like Freada, Barbara Sommer comes across as outwardly independent, defiant, controlling, different, “knows best”, willing to take risks under shield of PhD. 4. Fascination with mushroom indicative of a) enjoys danger/risks b) Identification with mushroom — a product/fruit of decay which does not rely on photosynthesis indicative Sommer perceives herself as different. Hence, while serving as Foreman of Yolo County Grand Jury she may have felt entitled, different, perhaps even superior to average resident of Yolo County]

Mushroom Foraging Class

Ever wonder what wild mushrooms would be tasty sautéed with garlic? Join veteran mushroom hunters Bob and Barbara Sommer of the Sacramento Mushroomers for some spring mushroom hunting on the American River Parkway.  Learn how to identify edible mushrooms growing right here in Sacramento.

Barbara Sommer is a retired Lecturer in Psychology from UC Davis. Her love of mushrooms goes back to a first sighting in the mid-1970s.

She is the Secretary/Treasurer of Sacramento Area Mushroomers (SAM), a member of the San Francisco Mycological Society (MSSF), and the North American Mycological Association (NAMA).

Hobbyist mushroomer for almost 40 years, Bob Sommer is the author of the column “Easy Edibles” for Mushroom, the Journal of Wild Mushrooming, plus mushroom articles in other local and national periodicals. He’s also the co-author of Field Guide to Mushrooms of Western North America (UC Press, 2012). Bob is Distinguished Professor of Psychology Emeritus, University of California, Davis where he taught the class Environmental Awareness.

Ivancovich, we have established a scholarship fund in their names and memory to benefit orphans and young adults who grew up in the foster care system.  Triffle was a long-time, active California Odd Fellow and Annie was a long-time active California Rebekah.  They both understood and took to heart the admonition of Odd Fellowship to “educate the orphan.” In recognition of Triffle and Annie’s goal, their family members have worked with the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge to establish a California Corporation, recognized as a 501 (c) (3) charitable entity (Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc.).

Application forms and nomination forms for the 2013 Triffle P. and Annie G. Ivancovich Scholarships are below.  Deadline for submission of applications and nominations for the 2013-14 college/university year is March 1, 2013.  Eligibility is limited to orphans or persons who grew up in the foster care system.  Grade point average minimums are necessary.  Only persons nominated by an Odd Fellow or Rebekah in good standing are eligible.  Full details on eligibility and criteria are contained on the application and the nomination forms.  Decisions regarding who does or does not receive a scholarship are solely within the discretion of the Davis Odd Fellows Charities, Inc.

GRAND JURY : Barbara Sommer on Yolo County Grand Jury / California Grand Juror’s Association ; Barbara Sommer as President of California Grand Jurors’ Association -Yolo Chapter ; YR’s Errata to Judicial Council Watcher In Re Barbara Sommer

Written by Barbara Sommer Thursday, 04 February 2010 06:03

by Barbara Sommer
Foreperson 2009-10 Yolo County Grand Jury

Yolo County is currently seeking members for the 2010-2011 Grand Jury. Nineteen citizens, selected by an interview and random draw, comprise this arm of the judicial system. It is a watchdog organization whose civil job is to investigate corruption, malfeasance, or simply inefficiency in the agencies and offices in its jurisdiction that receive public funds. Are local agencies doing their job? Are they following the rules? Problems are identified on the basis of complaints submitted from the public or from investigations initiated by the Grand Jury itself.
Applicants must be citizens, age 18-years or older, Yolo County residents for at least a year, have a sufficient knowledge of English, be of sound judgment and fair character, with no felony or malfeasance in office convictions. After being interviewed by a Superior Court Judge and  the Jury Commissioner, the applicants’ names are entered into a random draw. Nineteen are selected for the Grand Jury, with the remaining applicants as official alternates. Jurors serve for a term of one year, with a possibility of carryover to the next year for five jurors at the courts’ discretion.

Unlike the usual jury for a Court case, the Grand Jury is a more active body. It does its own investigations, including scheduling, data analysis, interviews, oversight visits, and writing reports. The main product of its activity is a public report issued at the end of its term in June. It can investigate any person, agency, or office in local government (city, county, special districts). However, the Grand Jury can neither prosecute nor punish. There is no direct staff support. The work is done by the nineteen members, although they can call on the designated Grand Jury Judge, County Counsel, District Attorney, and the State Attorney General for advice. In addition, a statewide organization (California Grand Juror’s Association) comprised of current and former grand jury members, provides education, training, and general support (see website at  http://cgja.org/).

In Yolo County, the jurors also serve as a criminal Grand Jury. The District Attorney may request the Grand Jury to return an indictment – a formal accusation leading to criminal trial. An indictment hearing is an alternative to a preliminary hearing in Superior Court. A key difference is that the Grand Jury hearing is secret. The DA may choose this alternative in order to protect witnesses or the accused, and to get a sense of the strength of a case from a community perspective.

Why serve? You may be able to bring to the jury a needed perspective based on your age or your particular background. Meetings are arranged to accommodate the schedules of people with work and family commitments. A strong Grand Jury is one that is truly representative of Yolo County’s diversity. You will learn much about local government, get an inside view of the criminal justice system, work with fellow jurors of different backgrounds, and learn about group processes and negotiation with colleagues holding different perspectives. The Grand Jury work requires a significant time requirement and can be tedious but a Grand Jury that is able to establish clear goals and procedures early on will be successful and personally gratifying.

The application deadline is Thursday, April 15, 2010

Dear Editor of Judicial Council Watcher:

If not a bother, will it be possible for you to please delete my prior comment from this column. The comment contains inaccurate and incomplete information. For example, although yesterday I believed Barbara Sommer was the president of Yolo County Grand Jury, upon further research I discovered an error. Namely, that she is actually the President of Yolo Chapter California Grand Jurors’ Association. She did serve as grand juror/foreperson from 2008-2010.

Also, upon reflection, my comment of yesterday may create the wrong impression in the mind of your readers that I contacted the District Attorney of Yolo County for the sole purpose of reporting a crime by Judge David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, and Barbara Sommer.

In fact, the Yolo DA was primarily contacted to simply alert him of my plan to seek information directly from Lea Rosenberg and/or David Rosenberg due to their extensive (and in my opinion — suspicious) involvement with various non-profits as not to run afoul of rules pertaining to ex-parte communications.

As you know from reading parts of Dydzak’s lawsuit, after I unearthed various schemes including, for example, by Judicial Council / Voice of OC members Joe Dunn and Thomas Girardi (i.e. CaliforniaALL ), and after I reported Voice of OC to the IRS, members of the State Bar of California Board of Governors (i.e. Joe Dunn, Jon Streeter of Keker & Van Nest — colleague of Chris Young who was a behind the scene actor of CaliforniaALL) pressed criminal charges against me with the Yolo DA “on behalf” of the entire “State Bar of California”

Since I strongly suspect Judicial Council members Mark Robinson (also part of CaliforniaALL scheme in his capacity as director of UC Irvine Foundation – where Joe Dunn serves as Chairman of the Audit Committee, and where CaliforniaALL forwarded all funds — including funds obtained from the California Bar Foundation), Tani Cantil-Sakauye (friend of Ruthe Ashley — CaliforniaALL executive director), and David Rosenberg are also somehow involved in provoking the Yolo DA , I begun to examine the background of David Rosenberg .

Alliance of California Judges on Auditing AOC; Copy of YR communication to Jeff Reisig Re Plan to Contact Dave Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, Yolo County Grand Jury President Barbara Sommer of Progress Ranch

March 27, 2013

Dear Members and Others,

We attach an editorial penned by Bill Girdner of the Courthouse News. Suffice it to say, our branch leaders have gotten the attention of those in the media who report on court cases and who believe in open government. The author voices a concern that we share — some of the reporting on the “$10 pay for view” proposal has appeared to cast blame on the Governor or his Department of Finance for this assault on the First Amendment and open government. That could not be further from the truth.

A Report to the Judicial Council dated December 14, 2012, lays out the council’s legislative priorities for 2013. On page 12 you will find language drafted by AOC staff amending the Government Code to charge the public $10 to view a “name, file, or other information for which a search is requested.” Our branch leaders standing by silently while the Governor and his Department of Finance are unfairly criticized for this gaffe hearkens back to the last time the AOC was caught attempting to gut Government Code sections concerning the management of the local trial courts. Then AOC staff affirmatively blamed the Department of Finance. Now, they seem content to allow a misleading impression to be made regarding the authorship of this misguided proposal.

We encourage you to read this report in its entirety, as it sheds additional light on what our handpicked leaders believe is essential in this year’s legislative session. We will point out only one additional item. On pages 7 and 8, the AOC proposes to defer audits for compliance with the Public Contracting Code unless specific funding is provided to the judicial branch to offset the cost for these audits.

As you know, the State Auditor recently released her audit findings of the first six local courts that were chosen to be audited. We learned from this audit that the AOC was up to its old tricks by providing incorrect data and excluding information required by the auditors. The six local courts were found to be substantially in compliance with the code. Ending the audits now would stop the State Auditor from auditing the “AOC and other judicial branch entities” as is required by December 15 of this year. It appears that the six local courts had the funds to pay for audits last year, but this year the central office appears to be broke and unable to afford an audit unless the General Fund provides the resources to do so. How convenient.
The Alliance believes that auditing the AOC is not a luxury that should only occur if extra funding is secured. Rather we believe it is of utmost importance that respected State Auditor Elaine Howle undertake this audit immediately. For those on the Judicial Council who champion and repeatedly claim that a new regime has embraced “greater transparency,” this proposal to kill off an audit speaks to their definition of transparency when it comes to their own operations.

As always, we will continue to keep you informed on matters concerning our branch.

Directors,

Alliance of California Judges

In that suspicious transactions involving Judge David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg (“Rosenbergs”), Treasurer Victor Bucher, Cache Creek Casino and Barbara Sommer (President of Yolo County Grand Jury ; Progress Ranch) were recently unearthed, this will serve to place your office on notice of my plans to directly contact those individuals in furtherance of the inquiry.

The above will be contacted in their capacity as officers of various non-profit entities ( Davis Odd Fellows, Soroptimist International of Davis, Davis Rebekah Lodge, Progress Ranch) for the purpose of obtaining documents, dates, amounts, as well as other relevant information.

Specifically, a noticeable surge has been detected in the level of enthusiasm (i.e. fundraising, donations)  on the part of  Cache Creek Casino and Rosenbergs to benefit “foster youth” and/or “emancipated foster youth” in Yolo County.”

For example, Rosenbergs (at times, with the assistance of Judge Dave Reed, Treasurer Victor Bucher) raised funds to support foster youth by mobilizing Davis Odd Fellows (“Breakfast with Santa”), Soroptimist International of Davis (“Texas Hold ‘Em” ) and Davis Rebekah Lodge (“Crab Feed” ).

Subsequently, those funds were forwarded directly to Progress Ranch and/or  Yolo County Department of Employment and Social Services – The Homeless and Foster Youth Services of Yolo County,  which in turns forward sums to Progress Ranch pursuant to contractual agreement with Yolo County totaling around $800,000 per annum.

Likewise, Cache Creek Casino’s sudden interest in foster youth manifested itself with a  $48,500 donation.

Please observe that the inquiry is in its infancy, and stem from the fact that Progress Ranch President Barbara Sommer is also the President of Yolo County Grand Jury, as well as  the role of Victor Bucher as treasurer in various judicial elections.

Profile of “Progress Ranch” in Yolo County [ TLR Note: A) It appears Progress Ranch reluctant to share names of board of directors as no data available on web-site B) Madam Lea Rosenberg actively raising funds vis-a-vis 1) Davis Odd Fellows – Breakfast with Santa, 2) Soroptimist International of Davis – Texas Hold ‘Em 3) Davis Rebekah Lodge — Crab Feed . C) President of Progress Ranch — Barbara Sommer of UC Davis — also President of Yolo County Grand Jury

In operation since 1976, Progress Ranch promotes the hope, health, and well-being of boys between the ages of 6 and 12 by helping them develop the self-confidence, competence, and positive feelings that result from living in a nurturing setting within a supportive community.

Our facility has six beds. We are located in a residential neighborhood in the city of Davis, and boys are eligible to attend Davis public schools. Our Executive Director, Wendi Counta, a long-time Davis resident, has over twenty years of experience working with children. She was the Residential Director at Families First for the past fifteen years. Her educational background is in Human Services management.

The Board of Directors is comprised of local residents who recognize the need for caring, community-based programs for children at risk. They meet monthly in Davis. A packet of material to describe board service opportunities is available upon request.

License and financial support

Progress Ranch is a nonprofit public benefit, 501(c) agency providing residential treatment services for the emotionally-troubled child. We are licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division.

Children are placed by social service case workers from Yolo and other regional counties. Residential care is paid from government funds according to rates set by the State of California.

Yolo County relieves foster youth’s transition to independence

Most teenagers anxiously await the day they turn 18, but not every young adult shares this same excitement. For foster youth, becoming a legal adult carries new responsibilities to lead an independent life.

In an effort to aid in the transition from out-of-home residencies to independent living, the Transitional Housing Placement Plus (THP-Plus) program helps emancipated foster children in 52 counties. The THP-Plus program offers affordable housing, furniture, assistance with enrollment in school and help finding a job to former foster children ages 18 to 24.

“It is the only program in the state that works to address homelessness in former foster youth,” said Amy Lemley, policy director for the John Burton Foundation. “I think it’s very scary for these teens. You can imagine the kind of panic and frustration that this creates for them. We need to fulfill our commitment to these young people the way a parent would support their child in this transition.”

The California Department of Social Services, John Burton Foundation and the Corporation for Supportive Housing established the statewide project in 2001. Yolo County implemented the THP-Plus program in 2008, providing affordable housing for foster youth in a subsidized, communal home in the city of Davis.

Youth in the 24-month program are given housing, furniture, food allotment, counseling, assistance with earning their GED if needed, a $50 monthly stipend and a trust account to help them save money for life after the program.

“Approximately 15 youth emancipate out of foster care in Yolo County each year,” said Nancy O’Hara, assistant director of Yolo County Department of Employment and Social Services in an e-mail interview. “Most have no where to live and no means of support at the time they are emancipated. The youth seem receptive and appreciative [of the THP-Plus].”

On July 1, however, the benefits of the program may be in danger if the state decreases its $172,000 allocation for Yolo County’s THP-Plus due to the California budget crisis.

“What little security they have had has been undermined by the recession,” Lemley said. “When we need it [the THP-Plus] most we see a proposal to eliminate it. As counties are more seriously affected by the recession, we see a kind of trickle down effect where counties have to decide what they do or do not want to do. It’s a tough decision for everyone.”

According to a 2002 study by the California Department of Social Services, every year in California over 4,200 young adults are dismissed from foster care, and two out of three end up homeless. Since its formation, the THP-Plus has been relatively successful – 85 percent of its participants retain housing and employment for at least one year after completing the program.

To help Yolo County’s local foster care, Soroptimist International of Davis held its annual poker tournament on March 6 at the Veterans’ Memorial Center.

“This type of issue isn’t on everyone’s radar,” said Lea Roseberg, president of Soroptimist International of Davis. “We wanted to bring it forth a little bit. I hope that these young adults know that there is a group out there that is supportive of their futures and that we care. Most of us have a mom or dad to help us get through college and pay for rent, but hopefully we can come in and help that Yolo County agency.”

About 80 percent of the profits collected were donated to the local housing program, the group’s primary project for the next couple years. Soroptimist will distribute the rest of the proceeds amongst other community projects.

“Each year, thousands of 18-year-olds find themselves totally on their own because they have aged out of the foster care system,” says Lea Rosenberg, a member of Soroptimist International of Davis.

“Suddenly, they must figure out how to live on their own, work out transportation issues, and find a job or enter college without the help of a trusted adult adviser. So, our club wants to make sure that the youth who age out of the foster care system in Yolo County know that there are adults who care about them and want to help them become self-sufficient.”

Soroptimists invite the public to help out by attending their annual “Spirit of the West” fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. All proceeds raised through this annual event are used to support and assist young adults who age out of foster care.

The Davis Rebekah Lodge invites the public to its Second Rebekah Lodge Crab Feed to be held on Saturday, Feb. 2, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Lodge Hall, 415 Second St., Davis. The crab feed is a charitable fundraiser, open to the general public.

Only 160 tickets were printed for the crab feed, and less than 30 tickets remain. Tickets are only sold at the Avid Reader Active bookstore on Second Street. It is not anticipated that any tickets will remain to be sold at the door.

Tickets are $40 per person and participants will get lots of fresh cracked crab, pasta, salad, bread and drawn butter. The Rebekah Crab Feed also features a silent auction and a full no-host bar.

A raffle will also be conducted featuring a 24-bottle wine locker, including 24 bottles of fine wine.

All proceeds from the Rebekah Lodge Crab Feed will be used for the benefit of at-risk and foster youth in the Yolo County community.

“The 175 members of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge look forward to Breakfast with Santa every year because it brings so much joy and pleasure to the children and families who participate,” said Dave Reed, Noble Grand of the lodge.

Proceeds from the event will support emancipated foster youths as they transition to adulthood and Progress Ranch, a group home for foster boys in Davis.

TIMELINE May 2011 – Davis Vanguard’s David Greenwald lashes out at Yolo County Superior Court Judge Dave Rosenberg for nominating wife Lea Rosenberg (aka Lea Pepper) for Civic Award [ TLR Note: award bestowed, in part, for fundraising on behalf of “Elderly Nutrition Program” (“ENP”) in Yolo County — known widely as “Meals on Wheels” and operated by People Resources, Inc. where Vic Bucher serves as director]

Humanitarian Award
Winner: Lea Rosenberg
Nominated By: Dave RosenbergThe Humanitarian Award recognizes significant efforts in improving the quality of life for Davis residents by directly addressing the needs of specific groups within the community in the areas of health, human services, housing or employment.Although Lea Rosenberg has volunteered in countless capacities throughout the community over the past quarter century, she was nominated to receive the Humanitarian Award because of her recent efforts with foster youth and emancipated foster youth. Her nominator Dave Rosenberg writes, “Lea…has raised a considerable amount in donations to provide funds for these foster kids to stay in school, to purchase bus passes and books, as well as clothing and school supplies. She has raised money so that the kids can live in apartments after they become adults. She has taken a personal interest in Davis’ own Progress Ranch – a home for 6 very hard to place foster boys – bringing them games and toys, and supplying the home with gifts when the kids have birthdays.”

Ms. Rosenberg has also worked to support the Yolo Food Closet, Meals on Wheels and All Things Right and Relevant.

Davis Vanguard’s David Greenwald:

When I first saw the list of Thon Hy Hunh award nominees, and saw that Lea Rosenberg had won the award for Humanitarian, I thought very little about it.  After all, anyone who knows Lea, understand and appreciates the years of work she has done in our community.

She is a longtime volunteer who works very hard and is totally devoted to many non-profits who do humanitarian work.

It was only when I saw that her husband, a former Mayor but a sitting Judge, had nominated her, that I got an unsettling knot in the pit of my stomach.

It is inappropriate for a husband to nominate his wife for an award.  It would be like nominating oneself.  It is a conflict of interest and strikes of self-promotion if not more.

What makes this worse is that dozens in this community would gladly have stepped in to nominate Mrs. Rosenberg, who is a very appropriate nominee, but for judge Rosenberg to do so looks self-serving.  And it cheapens the award which, has a distinguished history in this community, honoring people for public service and commitment to civil rights in our community.

Moreover, as a sitting Judge, in fact the presiding Judge, David Rosenberg ought to stay out of such trivial matters.  This would be like Judge Mock nominating his wife Ann Hurd for Prosecutor of the Year.  She may well be deserving of it, but family should not be nominating family.

What is amazing is the disconnect between Judge David Rosenberg who sits on the bench in Yolo County and the one who, for whatever reason, gets bogged down in these sort of self-promoting activities.

Judge Rosenberg, if I should have the misfortune of being accused of a crime, would be the judge I would want to preside over my case.  He is fair-minded, he is caring, he knows the law and he treats people with respect and decency.

He is a good and decent person and has often used his positions to help people in need.  He shows a level of compassion and decency that is often missing in our judicial system.

Many of our judges do not even pay lip-service to compassion.  Judge Rosenberg has demonstrated it on a consistent basis from the bench in a way that not only brings humanity to the courtroom, but also a sense of fair play.

At the same time, for whatever reason, he is prone to enormous lapses in judgment.  The building of the new courthouse is a good example.

Few people who utilize the current courthouse would doubt that the Yolo County Court facilities are badly in need upgrading, either through a remodel or a new building that would enable all of the courts to operate within a single building, without exposing the public and staff to the security risks of marching in-custody defendants through common-use hallways that the public inhabit.

Unfortunately, we have talked to many in the community who are just appalled that, at a time when public employees are being laid off and people are jobless, such a grandiose courthouse is being proposed.

Sadly, the court itself is not immune to such cutbacks.  Court staff have been laid off.  There are furlough days.  And recently many of the law enforcement officers who provided security through the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department had to be laid off as well.

When such financing schemes were called into question by people like Davis City Councilmember Sue Greenwald,  Davis Enterprise Columnist Rich Rifkin and myself, Judge Rosenberg took it upon himself to respond in an op-ed.

The Food Line as Life Line for Yolo County Seniors

By Dave Rosenberg, Yolo County Supervisor, 4th District

Almost 2,000 Yolo County Senior Citizens are provided nutritious noontime meals by the Elderly Nutrition Program, a lifeline for many of the recipients. The statistics are striking.

In Woodland 640 Seniors are served by this program, in Davis 448 are served, in West Sacramento 547 are served, in Winters 93 Seniors are served, 38 in Knights Landing and 14 in Esparto. In terms of age breakdown: 287 of the served Seniors are aged 60-69, 687 are in their 70’s, 683 are in their 80’s, 119 are in their 90’s and 4 are over 100 years of age. Fully 70% of the recipients are over 75 years of age, 60% are low income, and half live alone. Women make up 69% of the meal recipients, and men compose 31%.

The Elderly Nutrition Program was established in 1975 in Yolo County and is a private, non-profit community agency serving healthy meals to seniors in the county. The mission of the organization is to maintain the independence of older persons through improved nutritional status and social interaction. The program provides a hot, nutritious meal to seniors aged 60 and older each weekday, through two primary programs: the “Congregate Program” and the “Home Delivered Meals Program” ( commonly known as “Meals on Wheels”). A small staff supports the programs, and is supplemented by many community volunteers.

The Congregate Program operate within Senior Centers and Community Centers throughout the county, providing a hot meal to seniors that are more active and can get to the site to eat. In addition to the meal, seniors get a chance to get out of their homes, socialize with friends and attend functions at the centers. Last year, 1,211 senior citizens were served by this program throughout Yolo County.

The Home Delivered Meal Program provides an opportunity for “shut ins” or homebound seniors to receive a hot, home-delivered meal on a temporary or long-term basis, for those seniors who can’t prepare meals for themselves and do not have family or friends to provide assistance. In addition to meal delivery, the program provides an important daily social contact, a safety net system for families. Last year, 569 senior participated in this important, life-line program.

Last year, the Elderly Nutrition Program served over 100,000 meals to senior citizens in Yolo County. The actual cost of each meal served is under $5. Donations are requested, and participants, many of whom are on fixed incomes, are asked to pay whatever they can afford. Participant donations averaged $1.69 per meal for the Congregate Program and $1.18 for Meals on Wheels.

But the Elderly Nutrition Program faces challenges in Yolo County. Last year, like many businesses, the program was hit hard with unexpected increased costs that made it difficult to make ends meet. The program experienced a 20% increase in food costs alone, in addition to being hit with a minimum wage increase, higher expenses for gas and a doubling of the utility bill. The program faces a tough financial year and for the first time has a budgeted deficit of $20,000.

Many volunteers support the program, and numerous community donations are received. But more help is needed to make the program viable this year and in future years. Only 13% of the funding for the Elderly Nutrition Program comes from private donations. More private donations are needed to help cover the $20,000 deficit. For more information on the Yolo County Elderly Nutrition Program, please contact Colleen Brock, the executive director, at 662-7035, or write to the program at 40 N. East Street, Suite C, Woodland, CA 95776.

Volunteers and donations are always needed and welcomed!

Community meals are offered to Davis seniors at the Davis Senior Center, and a home-delivery service (Meals on Wheels) is available for homebound, frail or disabled seniors unable to come to the nutrition site. Volunteer drivers deliver meals to clients on a regular schedule between 11am and 12:30pm weekdays — a frozen meal is offered for legal holidays. Meals on Wheels participants are asked to contribute towards the cost of the meal daily or weekly, though no minimum amount is required and contributions are confidential. To sign up for Meals on Wheels, the senior, a family member or a professional caregiver may apply by calling the main office to complete a 15 minute intake questionaire over the phone during which includes personal contact and health information. A Home Delivery Coordinator will visit the senior at home within 10 days of the start of meal delivery and again every 90 days with a visit or call to update information, re-assess eligibility and provide referrals for other services that may be needed.

Volunteers are needed to deliver lunchtime meals to home-bound seniors between 10:45am and noon as well as on-call drivers and runners for all routes weekdays — these positions are for volunteers who can commit to once a week, twice a month, or occasional substitutes. Other positions include kitchen & community meal staff, auto maintenance for agency vehicles, and special project assistance such as holiday gift assembly or handyman projects. The program relies on almost 400 volunteers annually to perform the many duties needed to efficiently operate each site in a cost effective manner.

The Elderly Nutrition Program is operated by People Resources, Inc. [40 North East Street, Suite C . Woodland, CA] and receives funds from Title III of the Older Americans Act through the Area 4 Agency on Aging, & USDA. Funds are also received from Community Development Block Grants through Yolo County and the cities of Woodland and Davis, Participant Donations, Private and Corporate Donations, three annual fundraisers through Friends of Meals on Wheels and Catering Jobs. Government funding has remained the same or decreased over the years, while the number of needy seniors continues to rise. In addition, rising costs for food, food supplies, minimum wage increases, insurance and gas prices have made it more difficult to make ends meet and feed all those that are in need of meals. Donations are appreciated and all donations go directly to the program to meet food costs and maintain service.

++++++++++++

The Elderly Nutrition Program in Yolo County, known widely as Meals on Wheels, is a private, non-profit, community benefit organization, that provided over 83,000 meals to 1100 seniors in Davis, Woodland, Winters, West Sacramento, Knights Landing, Esparto, Madison and Yolo last year. The organization serves frail, homebound elders and meals to seniors at senior centers. Meals are planned by a dietitian and meet 1/3 of the daily nutrient requirement for adults. Often, this meal is their only nutritious meal of the day.

However, ENP is more than just a meal program. For many seniors, the 400 volunteer drivers, who deliver meals to their doorsteps, provide their only contact of the day. For others, who need additional help, ENP refers them to vital services and resources. ENP conducts nutritional assessments of each homebound senior four times a year, and offers education in nutrition, falls prevention and emergency preparedness to all seniors.

To provide these critical services to senior citizens, ENP depends on the generosity and support of community members, foundations, businesses and grants from governmental sources, such as an $8,000 federal Community Development Block Grant, administered by the City of Woodland, that funded a portion of the cost of meals for 27 low income seniors in Woodland last year. Less than 30% of ENP’s annual budget comes from governmental sources.

Community members can help reach all the Yolo County seniors who worry where their next meal is coming from. To join the pledge to end senior hunger by the year 2020, by

TIMELINE May 2012 : Union Attack Mailer Targets Sue Greenwald of Davis [ TLR Note: Clearly, based on address of 1477 Drew Ave Suite 103 — Vic Bucher — potential suspect ; Lends credence to TLR’s initial disquieting / spooky impression of Bucher ; Stephen Souza ?

union-sg-1

The gloves are coming off in what was tame Davis Council Election as an independent group backed by Sacramento-based unions the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 447, IBEW Local 340, Operating Engineers Local Union 3 in Support of Stephen Souza and in Opposition to Sue Greenwald has sent out an attack mailer to Davis residents reminding them of Councilmemeber Sue Greenwald’s publicized incident with former Mayor Ruth Asmundson.

While they are attempting to exploit the well-publicized event from January of 2010, the true target is Sue Greenwald’s fiscal stances and disagreements with the firefighters and other city employee groups on staffing and compensation issues.

The Vanguard spoke with Davis City Clerk Zoe Mirabile, she was unaware of any independent expenditure campaign and said that anyone participating in an independent expenditure campaign in support of or in opposition to candidates would be required to adhere to city municipal codes that requires filings and advanced notice to all candidates.

The City Clerk will be further looking into this matter, but it seems possible that this would be a violation of the City’s Municipal code.

The Vanguard will have further details when they become available.

Sue Greenwald:

A number of months ago, Jim Burchill of James Burchill & Associates approached me and told me that he was representing a building trades union, and that they really wanted the surface water project. He told me that the union was going to spend serious PAC money in our city election, and that I could be the beneficiary if I supported the project.

I interpreted this as a threat as well as a bribe, i.e., that if I didn’t support the project, they were going to engage in serious Karl Rove style attacks.

I tried to explain to Jim that my job was to represent the best interests of citizens of Davis, and that although I was extremely sympathetic to the union members’ desire for jobs, our combined wastewater, surface water project costs, water rights purchase and related new infrastructure was still around $300 million, which was very high for a city of our size, and that I felt obligated to pursue less expensive approaches.

I am afraid that this deplorable action by an outside PAC will intimidate many good, brave citizens from going into local Davis politics for a long time to come.

David Rosenberg Re-elected Chairman of California Lottery Commission

18 February 2003

SACRAMENTO, California –(Press Release)– The California Lottery Commission announced today, the re-election of Commissioner David Rosenberg, 56 as Chairman of the California Lottery Commission. Retired El Dorado County Sheriff Hal Barker was elected Vice-Chairman of the Commission.

The California Lottery is governed by a five-member Commission which is appointed by the Governor. Rosenberg was appointed to the Lottery Commission, an unpaid position, by Governor Davis in March 1999.

Commissioner David Rosenberg was appointed to the Commission in March 1999 to the Lottery Commission to a term that expired in November 2001. Governor Davis reappointed Rosenberg to a subsequent term that expires in November of 2006. David Rosenberg of Davis, California, was elected to the first of three consecutive terms on the Davis City Council in 1984. During his 12 years of city council service, he served two terms as Mayor. In 1996 he was elected to Yolo County Board of Supervisors representing the fourth district, served as board chair in 1997, and was re-elected in 2000. As County Supervisor, his leadership positions include serving as a member of the Yolo- Solano Air Quality Management District, as a member of the California Council on Criminal Justice Planning, as Chairman of the Yolo County Economic Development Council and co-chairman of the Criminal Justice Cabinet. For the past ten years, Rosenberg has served as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and was the former chairman of the California Law Revision Commission.

Rosenberg, an attorney, established a private law practice in Sacramento, then in Davis, California, which he continued through 2000. Rosenberg was a partner in the law Firm of Diepenbrock, Wulff, Plant, & Hannegan from 1986-1996 and was also a partner in the law firm of Felderstein, Rosenberg & McManus from 1981-1986.

Addendum to Coverage of State Bar of California v. Clint Parish : Audio of Yolo County Superior Court Judge Dave Rosenberg RoboCall to Residents of Yolo County In Re Clint Parish / Judge Dan Maguire [TLR Note: use of robocall alone — if legally allowed — not necessarily problematic i.e. “I am Judge A, I call to let you know that I am endorsing Judge B.” Judge Rosenberg, however, crossed line by lending prestige of his name and office (which demonstrates authority) by taking side of dispute between Parish and Maguire i.e. Rosenberg heard stating mailer full of factual inaccuracies. Argument also can be made Maguire equally culpable in re content of robocall by agreeing-urging Rosenberg / paying cost. Of course, readers also need not forget Rosenberg very serious misconduct re threat “phlegm” will backfire ]


(Image: courtesy of DAVISVANGUARD.ORG)

The Leslie Brodie Report has learned that the State Bar of California seeks to impose professional discipline on former Yolo County Assistant District Attorney Clint Parish.

Clint Parish
Clinton E. Parish, 41, is accused of making misrepresentations about himself and his opponent — Judge Dan Maguire — in the May 2012 election for Yolo County Superior Court.

Acccording to the State Bar of California, “Parish’s campaign materials falsely asserted, among other things, that his opponent was “involved in a sordid case of corporate fraud that involved payment of bribes in Russia.” Parish’s campaign website erroneously claimed that he had been endorsed by the Winters Police Department and his yard signs gave the false impression that he had judicial experience.”

 Robert A. Hawley
Mr. Robert Hawley, California State Bar Deputy Executive Director and an adjunct ethics professor at McGeorge School of Law, stated to the Sacramento Bee: “This is a serious charge…If the allegations are proved true, Parish could face penalties that range from a reprimand to disbarment.”

According to the Bee, “The State Bar’s disciplinary filing is rare. Just 28 such misconduct cases – including the one against Parish – have been filed by the bar since 2000, say State Bar officials. Of those, 21 cases were closed without an investigation. The Parish case is one of only two since 2000 to proceed to a hearing.”


California Judicial Council members Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye (“best friend” of Ruthe Ashley of financial scheme CaliforniaALL), Yolo County Superior Court PJ Dave Rosenberg, UC Irvine Foundation’s Mark Robinson of Robinson Calcagnie & Robinson (confederate of Cal Bar executive director Joe Dunn of UC Irvine Foundation / Voice of OC / CaliforniaALL ), Assistant US Attorney Angela Davis. Subsequent to an allegedly inaccurate mailer sent by Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Clinton Parish , who was running for Yolo Superior Court judge against incumbent Judge Dan Maguire, Judge Dave Rosenberg issued the following veil threat against Parish: “This sort of phlegm tends to backfire. It flies back in the face of the expectorant.” (image:courtesy photos)

State Bar’s spokeswoman Laura Ernde stated to The Davis Enterprise that “the charges arose from a complaint that was filed with the State Bar, but the identity of the complainant is confidential at this point.”

As we mentioned previously, in response to the mailer sent by Parish’s campaign, a highly perturbed Judge Rosenberg launched an unprecedented attack on Parish. This, despite knowing full well that California Canons of Judicial Ethics permit a judicial officers only to “endorse” candidates for judicial office. Specifically, and consistent with his new role, Judge Rosenberg, inappropriately so, resorted to sending a robocall out to many voters “to set the record straight” of what he called, “a nasty political hit piece” which “contains flat out lies and deceptions about a highly respected Judge here in Yolo County, Judge Dan Maguire.” Judge Rosenberg also promised, inappropriately so, to retaliate against Clint Parish and issued a thinly veiled threat against him by stating: “This sort of phlegm tends to backfire. It flies back in the face of the expectorant.”

According to Yolo County-based Rabbi (“YR”), he is “shocked and disappointed” by the prosecution of Clint Parish and surrounding circumstances.

YR stated: “As a resident of Yolo County, I was exposed to the campaign material of both Parish and Judge Dan Maguire — who is by all accounts, a gentleman.”

“The circulated political propaganda made it very clear that Parish is a prosecutor and not a judge, and as such, I was never led to believe that Parish had prior judicial experience, as the State Bar falsely alleges. Any other unfortunate alleged misstatements concerning Judge Maguire were the fault of Parish’s campaign manager, and once those alleged inaccuracies were brought to the attention of Parish, he immidetly disavowed them,” YR continued.

“At the risk of sounding kitschy, everyone needs to remember that we don’t live in an error-free world, and I call on the person who filed the complaint against Clint Parish with the State Bar of California to withdraw it — be it, as I speculate, Judge Dave Rosenberg or our spineless DA Jeff Reisig,” YR concluded.

Were Thomas Girardi and Joe Dunn Part of CaliforniaALL Financial Scheme in Judicial Council Capacity? Role of UCI Foundation’s Mark Robinson? Judge Dave Rosenberg as Potential Accessory In Re Sham Search Warrant ? Angela Davis?

MORRISON & FOERSTER TEAM: CHRIS YOUNG , JAMES BROSNAHAN, TONY WEST, ANNETTE CARNEGIE, SUSAN MAC CORMAC, ERIC TATE

” VOICE OF OC” TEAM — Henry Weinstein, Girardi & Keese’s Thomas Girardi , Morrison & Foerster’s James Brosnahan, and Joe Dunn.  In September of 2009, Dunn (with the help of Girardi and Brosnahan) launched “The Voice of Orange County” — an online publication.  Additionally, Dunn is a trustee with the UCI Foundation — an entity which absorbed most of the grants CaliforniaALL had bestowed.

As mentioned before, in a letter to Joe Dunn,  YR wrote “Once Ashley assumed the position, the Foundation of the State Bar of California (which is under the complete control of the BOG) made a quiet and unlawful transfer of approximately $780,000 from Cal Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL. At the time of the transfer, the individuals controlling the Foundation were Holly Fujie, Girardi & Keese’s Howard Miller, Howard Rice’s Douglas Winthrop, Geoffrey Brown, and a few others.

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.

During its brief existence, CaliforniaALL obtained additional funding of close to $1.5 million from utility companies such as Verizon Wireless, Sempra, PG&E, and others.

As the purpose of CaliforniaALL was to transfer those funds forward, it did so by awarding approximately $300,000 in grants to the UCI Foundation, where you serve as trustee and chair of the Audit Committee. (Please note that this figure may change once I obtain CaliforniaALL’s final tax return.)

Note that from my perspective, the award of this grant is suspect as it appears that CaliforniaALL pre-selected UCI Foundation, making the simulated request for proposal (RFP) by Sarah Redfield that led to the grant a sham process. (Note also that Sarah Redfield later falsely claimed she “launched” SAL-UCI, and falsely stated on her resume that she was part of the “Curriculum Committee”; in reality, you and I know that SAL-UCI was established by Santana Ruiz and Rob Vicario, several years earlier.)

In September 2009, Ruthe Ashley abruptly exited CaliforniaALL. In the same month and year, you publicly launched your online publication, “The Voice of OC.” Public sources have stated that the Voice of OC was financed by various foundations, unions, and the like.

The fact that some individuals and entities involved in the creation of CaliforniaALL and the subsequent unlawful transfer of $780,000 from the Cal Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL were also involved in assisting you with the creation of “Voice of OC” has caused me to entertain the thought that “Voice of OC” may have been a recipient, at least in part, of the $780,000 misappropriated from the State Bar of California.

This belief is heightened given various events’ proximity in time — as noted above, Ruthe Ashley left CaliforniaALL in the same month you 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 you share with him.”


Mr Tom Girardi of Los Angeles-based Girardi & Keese. Per findings adjudicated by the Ninth Circuit, Walter Lack and Thomas Girardi have resorted to employing “the persistent use of known falsehoods” and “false representations” were made “knowingly, intentionally, and recklessly” during years of litigation. Subsequnet to those findings, the State Bar of California appointed Howard Rice’s Jerome Falk to serve as special prosecutor against Girardi, Lack, and their respective firms. None mentioned that Girardi and Lack are actually clients of Jerome Falk and Howard Rice. See story here.

Judge Dave Rosenberg as Potential Accessory After the Fact ?

I. INTRODUCTION

Sara M. Granda v State Bar of California (2009 cv 02015)

In May 2009, Sara Granda graduated from U.C. Davis School of Law and, like most of her peers, hoped to sit for the July 2009 bar exam.

California’s Department of Rehabilitation paid the $600 bar exam fee with a check, and Granda was assured that she was properly registered.


Ms. Sara Granda. It is easy to imagine Sara Granda in a courtroom, questioning witnesses, challenging the opposition, and fighting for justice with the force of her large personality. A ventilator, which she needs to breathe, would hang from the back of her wheelchair. An assistant would help her flip through files, since she cannot move her hands or arms. When she approaches the bench, Ms. Granda would maneuver her chair using her tongue. “So much of what happens in the courtroom is theater,” says Ms. Granda, 29, who has lived out her own drama since she became paralyzed from the neck down at age 17. “I’m not sure how much time I will spend in court as an attorney. But I know I could do it.” (Photo and Narrative Courtesy of www.alldeaf.com)

However, the State Bar of California’s Office of Admission, headed by Ms. Gayle Murphy, never processed Granda’s application because the Department of Rehabilitation paid the $600 fee with a check, rather than a credit card The State Bar of California did not relent, and neither did Granda.


Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (Courtesy CNN)

Local and national media expressed outrage after the situation gained publicity as a result of statements by Governor Schwarzenegger, who publicly stated: “It is outrageous that someone who has overcome so much in life is penalized by a bureaucratic error that prevents her from taking the bar exam. Government should work for the people, not against them and I’m calling on the state bar to allow Sara Granda to take next week’s test. Sara is a fighter and I am with her all the way.”

 Robert A. Hawley
Mr. Robert A. Hawley, California State Bar Deputy Executive Director and an adjunct ethics professor at McGeorge School of Law, stated to the Sacramento Bee: “It’s a high-tech process, and people need to maneuver it successfully, and we can’t be in the business of helping any one person out with it.” Hawley continued: “That takes us down a path that ends up in a place we don’t want to be. How do you then choose which ones to help and which you don’t?”

“I worked very, very hard for every cent,” Granda stated to the local media. “So for everything to come together in the end and for it to just kind of fall through on such a minor, minor detail.”

True to her spirit, Granda filed an action in federal court seeking an order directing the State Bar of California to allow her to take the fast-approaching bar exam.

The case was assigned to the courtroom of Judge Morrison England of CaliforniaALL. Judge England is the husband of California ALL board member Torie Flournoy-England who, together with State Bar Executive Director Judy Johnson and Patricia Lee also served on CaliforniaALL’s advisory council.

Torie Flournoy Morrison England
After Judge Morrison England quickly filed for summary dissolution in Sacramento County Superior Court, and after Judge England and Torie Flournoy wed, and after Torie Flournoy-England was appointed to serve as a member of CaliforniaALL’s board of directors, and while CaliforniaALL was in existence — a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, in which the State Bar of California was named as the sole defendant. Serving on CaliforniaALL’s board of directors of CaliforniaALL (which was in a partnership relationship with the State Bar of California) was Torie Flournoy-England. State Bar of California Executive Director Judy Johnson, State Bar employee Patricia Lee, Kamala Harris, CPUC’s Michael Peevey, CPUC’s Tim Simon, as well as Judge England were part of CaliforniaALL’s Advisory Council. The above photo, which was published on the cover of a local magazine in Sacramento, notes that the Englands wed in May 2008. (image: courtesy photo)

Making an appearance and vigorously contending that the federal court had no jurisdiction over the State Bar of California were State Bar of California emloyees, Larry Yee, Rachel Grunberg, and Mark Torres-Gil of the State Bar office of General Counsel, the same office that drafted the partnership agreement between CaliforniaALL and the State Bar of California, as well as attorneys from the law offices of Kerr & Wagstaffe.

II. CALIFORNIA BAR JOURNAL’S DISHONEST JOURNALISM

California Bar Journal

In the midst of a public relations crisis arising from the mistreatment of the Sara Granda by the State Bar of California, an article was published in the California Bar Journal. The article was published on July 27, 2009, and was written by Diane Curtis.

As the reader will soon observe, this article is imbued with inaccurate information and is otherwise dishonest.
Article California Bar Journal about Granda

Soon after U.S. District Court Judge Morrison England dismissed the federal complaint filed by Granda against the State Bar, a Sacramento attorney, Stewart Katz, volunteered to help Granda, and did so by filing a writ of preemptive mandate against the State Bar of California.

The emergency writ was filed on July 27, 2009 and was served electronically on the State Bar. (See below.)

GRANDA v STATE BAR DOCKET

Richard Zanassi, an attorney employed by the State Bar’s Office of General Counsel, filed an opposition in response to the writ. However, due to the wide media attention focusing on the case, the opposition was styled as a request for guidance by the court.

Thus, the article written by Diane Curtis and published in the California Bar Journal is dishonest as it misleads readers into believing that the State Bar, on its own accord, approached the California Supreme Court of its own volition, as an act of altruism and due to concern for Ms. Granda. Clearly, this was not the case.

In addition, one must wonder why Diane Curtis did not mention the fact that Granda, through Stewart Katz, filed the writ for mandamus.

As is made clear by its order, the Supreme Court decided the matter by granting the writ, and not by granting the State Bar’s purported request for guidance.

Re: Complaint for Ethical Violations Against the State Bar of California; Lawrence Yee – #84208; Rachel Grunberg – #197080; Judy Johnson – #71360 ; Mark Torres-Gil – #91597.

INTRODUCTION

In lieu of submitting a complaint form, I submit this letter and enclosed materials as a formal complaint against the above-named attorneys for grave misconduct that took place in handling matters relating to applicant Sara Granda and the case of Granda v. State Bar of California.

As will be shown, the above parties, together and individually, engaged in egregious misconduct by conspiring and failing to disclose to the plaintiff the existence of a close relationship between the State Bar of California, CaliforniaALL, State Bar Executive Director Judy Johnson,Patricia Lee, and the judge who presided over a case (Hon. Morrison C. England) in which the State Bar of California was named as the sole defendant.

Furthermore, misconduct in the form of misrepresentations to the court took place regarding the current state of the law; further misconduct resulted from the discrimination against against the plaintiff based on her disability, and the unwillingness to comply with the ADA by affording the plaintiff reasonable accommodations. In addition, and adding insult to injury, the State Bar of California used the California Bar Journal as a tool to further injure and harass Granda by publishing an incomplete and inaccurate article which asserted that the State Bar had sought the advice of the California Supreme Court in determining how to resolve Granda’s claims. The article failed to mention that, in actuality, Granda had filed an action with the California Supreme Court for a preemptive writ and a writ of mandamus, such that the article misled readers regarding the actual circumstances surrounding Granda’s claims.

GENERAL BACKGROUND:

The Honorable Judge Morrison C. England is a United States District Court judge for the Eastern District of California who sits in Sacramento. Prior to assuming the role of federal judge, he served as a judge with the Sacramento County Superior Court. Judge England is a graduate of McGeorge School of Law, also located in Sacramento.

In approximately 2005, as part of his community involvement and extra-judicial activities, Judge England became involved in programs initiated by Elizabeth Parker, dean of McGeorge, and Sarah Redfield, a visiting professor from New Hampshire, relating to the promotion of diversity within the legal profession. Ruthe Catolico Ashley, an assistant dean at the career office at McGeorge School of Law who later assumed a position as a Diversity Officer at CalPERS, was also involved in these activities.

The diversity initiatives instigated by McGeorge were both local and national in scope. The local program in Sacramento was entitled “PacificPathways.” The program to promote diversity on a national level became known as “Wingspread,” which evolved into a series, including Wingspread – Blackboard, Bench, and Bar and Wingspread – Delivered and Deliverable, and the like. Torie L. Flournoy, a school principal from Sacramento, was also involved in these programs at the local level.

Because Ruthe Ashley also served on the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California and Sarah Redfield served on the State Bar’s Council on Fairness and Access, the parties from Sacramento (namely, Parker, Ahley, Flournoy, Redfield and Judge England) became acquainted with individuals from the State Bar of California who were involved in matters relating to diversity, including Executive Director Judy Johnson, State Bar employee Patricia Lee, and Buchalter Nemer’s Holly Fujie.

As such, it was common to observe the same participant names at various diversity-related events taking place around the country. For example, over a 3 day weekend in Monterrey on October 5-7, 2006, part of the Wingspread program ran concurrently with the State Bar of California’s annual convention. Some of the attendees included Judy Johnson, Holly Fujie, Patricia Lee, Ruthe Ashley, Torie L. Flournoy, Hon. Morrison C. England, Dean Elizabeth Parker, and Sarah Redfield. (See attachment titled “Wingspread VI.”) This event, Wingspread — Blackboard Bench and Bar, was organized by Sarah Redfield. Similarly, in June 2007, and also part of the “Wingspread” series, a summit was held in Honolulu, Hawaii at which Dean Elizabeth Parker, Hon. Morrison C. England, Sarah Redfield and Torie L. Flournoy were all in attendance. (See attachment titled “UH Manoh Law School.”)

In approximately 2007, Ruthe Ashley and Munger Tolles & Olson’s Jeffrey Bleich served as Vice President and President of the California State Bar, respectively. During that time frame, an idea was formulated to replicate an existing entity that would also absorb large sums of money from utility companies, and which would be used to allegedly promote diversity.

The original entity, the California Consumer Protection Foundation (CCPF), was secretly controlled for years by State Bar Executive Director Judy Johnson. Fines and settlements from proceedings before the CPUC and other cy pres funds of approximately $30 million dollars were funneled to CCPF, primarily from legal and administrative proceedings. Unlike the funds funneled to CCPF via cy pres funds or fines imposed by the CPUC, the funds flowing to the new entity would come from utility companies’ voluntary donations after they were urged by the CPUC and others to donate in order to further diversity.

As such, Peter Arth (Chief of Staff to then-President of the CPUC, Michael Peevey) invited Ruthe Ashley to a restaurant in San Francisco. As a result of the meeting, a new entity known as CaliforniaALL was formed as a Section 501(c)(3) charitable entity that would collect funds to theoretically be used to invest in promoting diversity. CaliforniaALL, which came into existence in 2008 and was abruptly dissolved in 2010, was considered to have been in a partnership relationship with the State Bar of California. (See Attachment titled “Memo from Patricia Lee to BOG.”) In addition, the partnership stipulation between the State Bar and CaliforniaAll provided that the Board of Governors would appoint two of CaliforniaALL’s members to the Board of Directors.

Executive Director of the State Bar of California Judy Johnson, Patricia Lee, and Judge Morrison England were members of CaliforniaALL’s “Advisory Council” (see Attachment titled “CaliforniaALL December 2008 Newsletter”), affording Judy Johnson and Judge England numerous opportunities to meet and collude or, at a minimum, to create such an appearance.

CaliforniaALL obtained donations of almost $2 million, primarily from utility companies such as Sempra, AT&T, PG&E and, of course, Verizon Wireless. In addition, Judy Johnson, Patricia Lee, Buchalter Nemer’s Holly Fujie, and Leslie Hatamiya colluded to transfer $774,247 sub rosa from the State Bar of California Foundation (dba California Bar Foundation) to CaliforniaALL. (See attachment titled “Cal Bar Foundation’s tax return for 2008.”) In 2009, yet another $5,000 was transferred from Cal Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL for purposes of “researching” best practices. Hence, for simplicity’s sake, this complaint rounds the amount at issue to $780,000.

The transfer of $780,000 from Cal Bar Foundation to CaliforniaALL was never acknowledged by any of CaliforniaALL’s publications. Similarly, it was never mentioned in the California Bar Journal or the NewsRoom of Cal Bar Foundation, where all other grants were heavily reported.

It is my position that the transfer of funds was never mentioned because it resulted from a conspiracy by Ruthe Ashley, Holly Fujie, Patricia Lee, and Leslie Hatamiya (all, incidentally, Asian-Americans who are very active in the promotion of diversity) to quietly shift the $780,000, some of which would later be misappropriated and used for personal gain and kickbacks. Indeed, once the funds reached CaliforniaALL, some of it was misappropriated. In order to cover-up the misappropriation, false and inaccurate statements were submitted to the IRS by CaliforniaALL and Ruthe Ashley. For example, CaliforniaALL, which was housed pro bono at the Sacramento Office of DLA Piper, falsely claimed in IRS filings that it had paid approximately $16,000 in occupancy fees. Additional financial improprieties also exist which cannot be disclosed due to the fact that the State Bar is the wrongdoer and, ironically, is the entity to which I am required to submit this complaint for processing.

It is worth noting that the California Bar Foundation is part and parcel of the State Bar of California, despite claims to the contrary and the contention that it is only affiliated with the State Bar. The fact of the matter is that the State Bar’s Board of Governors appoints all Foundation board members, including the president, and that the Executive Director of the California Bar Foundation reports directly to the Board of Governors and needs the Board’s approval to change any bylaws, for example.

In the meantime – after Judge England filed for summary dissolution in the Sacramento Superior Court, and after Judge England and Torie L. Flournoy wed, and after Torie Flournoy-England was appointed to serve as a member of CaliforniaALL’s board of directors, and while CaliforniaALL was still in existence – a lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, in which the State Bar of California was named as the sole defendant.

The action was filed by plaintiff Sara Granda and was titled Sara Granda v. the State Bar of California (Case Number 2:09-cv-02015- MCE; see attachment titled “Complaint by Plaintiff Sara Granda”). The matter was adjudicated by Judge England, who promptly dismissed it. Neither Judge England, the defendant, Judy Johnson, or defense counsel Lawrence Yee, Mark Torres-Gil, or Rachel Grunberg disclosed to Granda the State Bar’s ongoing relationship with CaliforniaALL, to wit:

1. CaliforniaALL and the defendant (State Bar of California) are business partners.
2. Judge England and the Executive Director of the State Bar of California (Ms. Judy Johnson) are members of CaliforniaALL’s advisory council.
3. Torie Flournoy-England, the spouse of Judge England, is a board member of CaliforniaALL, an entity that is a partner of the State Bar.
4. The unusual sub rosa transfer of $780,000 from defendant to CaliforniaALL.

By failing to make the disclosures mandated by these facts, the above-named attorneys committed misconduct, irrespective of the actual merit of Granda’s case or its outcome. As such, each must be disciplined for his/her wrongful conduct. Those attorneys are Judy Johnson, Lawrence Yee, Mark Torres-Gil, Rachel Grunberg, and Holly Fujie.

Fujie, who participated in all the proceedings concerning CaliforniaALL (including, strangely, causing the ex post facto appointment of Peter Arth to the Council of Access and Fairness to give them a chance to meet and collude), was also a member of the Board of Governors’ Operation Committee and was briefed regarding Granda’s case. In addition, she was aware that Judge England was presiding over the case and that he and his wife were part of CaliforniaALL. In addition, Fujie served as the president of the State Bar of California and as a member of both the Board of Governors and Operations Committee, and was briefed on the matter; in fact, she authorized the expenditure of money to pay as legal fees to oppose the suit before Judge England. In addition Ms. Fujie participated in multiple diversity-related events at which Judge England and his wife Torie Flournoy-England were present; one such even took place on January 27, 2009, when DLA Piper’s Gilles Attia and the Office of Assembly-member Mike Davis co-hosted a reception honoring California ALL at the Tsakopoulos Galleria in Sacramento. Despite of all the above, Fujie –instead of speaking up concerning the obvious conflict regarding Judge England — kept quiet and looked the other way.

Even though the outcome of the Granda matter is irrelevant to a determination of the misconduct described above, the following paragraphs are included to provide further background and to rebut any allegation that the relationship between the Englands and the defendant caused no prejudice to plaintiff Sara Granda, or that the failure to provide fair administration of justice was otherwise harmless.

The fact of the matter is that the plaintiff Granda was severely prejudiced by the misconduct.

Granda, a 2009 graduate of U.C. Davis School of Law, intended to sit for the July 2009 bar exam. The recent graduate, a quadriplegic who can only move her head and fingers, arranged for the California Department of Rehabilitation to pay the examination fee of $600, which it did via check. However, the State Bar stated that it only accepts payments made via credit card, and would not allow Granda to sit for the fast-approaching bar examination. Plaintiff sensed unfairness and, like many recent law school graduates before her who approached federal court, she asked the federal court to award her both monetary and equitable relief in her lawsuit, which claimed that defendant State Bar of California violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The State Bar of California, which was represented by Michael von Loewenfeldt of Kerr & Wagstaffe, as well as Lawrence Yee, Mark Gil-Torres and Rachel Grunberg (State Bar in-house attorneys), asserted that the State Bar was immune pursuant to the 11th Amendment. (See attachment titled “Defendant’s Opposition.”) In its filing and opposition, defendant mostly cited as authority cases adjudicated by district courts around the country, as there is no clear authority addressing the interactions between the ADA and Eleventh Amendment immunity. Cases which held otherwise were not referenced by defendant, including Stoddard v. Florida Board of Bar Examiners and many other cases which held that, in fact, the ADA abrogates Eleventh Amendment immunity.

Misled, at least in part, by the argument advanced by defendant State Bar, Judge England promptly dismissed the case without giving Granda the chance to amend or plead around the issue of Eleventh Amendment immunity by, for example, naming Judy Johnson as a defendant in her individual capacity. In addition, Granda’s claim for monetary relief was completely ignored by the judge, and was never ruled upon.

Based on the foregoing, it is clear that the above-named attorneys engaged in egregious misconduct. The fact that they are part of the State Bar, an entity that should hold itself as a beacon of high ethical standards, coupled with Ms. Granda’s special circumstances, mandate and call for severe discipline.

IV. REPLY TO COMPLAINT BY JILL SPERBER OF THE STATE BAR OF CALIFORNIA

Letter Jill Sperber State Bar of CaliforniaJill Sperber to Complainant 2

V. SUBTERFUGE BY TORIE FLOURNOY-ENGLAND, SARAH REDFIELD AND RUTHE CATOLICO ASHLEY

Ms. Sarah E. Redfield is a tenured law professor at the UNH School of Law. She is an expert in the area of education, education jurisprudence, and matters relating to diversity in the legal profession.

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.

Events surrounding Redfield, as shown below, appear to be imbued with fraud and deceit, and it appears her role was to create a subterfuge to justify the existence of CaliforniaALL. Since CaliforniaALL’s main achievement was the purported creation of a “Saturday Academy of Law” at UC Irvine (“SALUCI” or “UCISAL”), Ms. Redfield pretended to have engaged in Requests for Proposals (“RFP”), as well as falsely claiming that she “launched” SALUCI. She gave very little, if anything, in return for the $157,763 she was paid. In fact, she took credit for the extremely hard work of others.

As circumstances presented themselves, particularly with the election of former NBA player Kevin Johnson as the mayor of Sacramento, an idea surfaced that McGeorge (and other law schools in their respective communities) would create their own supplies of qualified minority students by actively engaging the community of potential future students as early as junior high school. Activities would include mentoring, speaker series, field trips, on-site visits to the law schools, Saturday law classes, and the like.

Thus, with visiting Professor Redfield, various programs came about, such as Wingspread P20 Consortium. At McGeorge, a local program known as the “Pacific Pathways” was created by Professor Redfield with help from Twin Rivers Unified School District employee, Torie Flournoy.

Also employed at McGeorge as Assistant Dean for Career Services was Vice President of the State Bar of California, Ms. Ruthe Catolico Ashley, as well as State Bar of California Deputy Executive Director, Mr. Robert Hawley. Ashley and Redfield were also involved with diversity-related matters within the State Bar of California as part of its council on access and fairness, and as the head of a working group referred to as “Education Pipeline, State Bar of California.”

Shortly, thereafter, Ashley left McGeorge to work at CalPERS as a “Diversity Officer” for External Affairs. Subsequenty, CPUC General Counsel Peter Arth invited Ashley and Redfield to dinner, whereupon the idea for CaliforniaALL (initially known as Ca AAL) was memorialized on a paper napkin in approximately July 2007.

In mid 2008, CaliforniaALL was ready to rock and roll. It had just obtained Section 501(C)(3) approval, Ruthe Catolico Ashley was hired as a CEO, a sub rosa transfer of $780,000 had been received from the State Bar of California Foundation (AKA Cal Bar Foundation), and close to another million dollars from utility companies, allegedly, poured in.

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

Sara E. Redfield SAL

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.

Work CALALL SAL

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.

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.

For example, as part of a field trip to law firms, the photo below was taken in 2007 when the UCISAL group visited the law offices of Allen Matkins. (See below.) We have intentionally blurred the photo to maintain the students’ privacy. Seated on the right is Allen Matkins managing partner Robert Hamilton. On the far right is Karina Hamilton, a former Allen Matkins associate, wife of Robert Hamilton, and the former Director of Saturday Academy of Law at U. C. Irvine.

On April 13, 2012 Adam Stock of Allen Matkins’ office in Orange County published the following:

“Allen Matkins joined the Orange County Diversity Task Force, a collaborative effort of professionals from top Orange County law firms and businesses that are committed to achieving cultural diversity in the legal profession. As part of this effort, on April 6, 2010, Allen Matkins hosted an office visit and luncheon for the inaugural class of the University of California — Irvine Saturday Academy of Law program (“SAL”).”

Unfortunately, again, 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.

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.

In fact, metadata from Allen Matkins’ own photos reveals the photos below were taken on January 24, 2007, and not on April 2, 2010 as Allen Matkins (who’s managing partner is Bob Hamilton — husband of UC Irvine’s Karina Hamilton) falsely alleges.

VI. YR’S VIEW OF EVENTS SURROUNDING CaliforniaALL

CaliforniaALL -- Team Barack Obama
(L-R) USDOJ’s Tony West, Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich, HUD’s Ophelia Basgal, Judy Johnson, Chris Young, Annette Carnegie, James Brosnahan, and Kamala Harris. (Image:courtesy photos)

As matters presently stand, it appears that in 2008 Morrison & Foerster attorneys James Brosnahan (self-proclaimed “mastermind behind the Democratic Party.), Tony West (Barack Obama’s Chair of California Finance Committee), Chris Young (“Obama for America” Northern California Deputy Finance Director) and Annette Carnegie (former director with the California Bar Foundation) in conjunction with Kamala Harris (Co-Chair, Obama for America ; member of CaliforniaALL) , Jeffrey Bleich (president of the State Bar of California, director with the California Bar Foundation, founding member and Chair of Barack Obama’s National Finance Committee) executed a sophisticated financial scheme to misuse all or part of the “hush-hush” $780,000.00 originating from the California Bar Foundation by improperly transferring the money to Barack Obama’s coffers via a separate foundation created ad hoc by Susan Mac Cormac of Morrison & Foerster known as CaliforniaALL.

Other then collecting close to $2 million directly from utility companies (including the “hush-hush” transfer of $774,247, comprised of one installment of $5000 and another contribution of $769,247 from the Foundation which was never mentioned in the Foundation’s “newsroom” or by any other of its publications such as the California Bar Journal or by any of the newsletters and alerts published by CaliforniaALL), CaliforniaALL appears to have been be a sham, phantom entity from its inception in 2008 to the day it began to slowly be dissolved in approximately 2009, subsequent to the election of Barack Obama as president of the U.S. Its only alleged achievement was providing some money for the creation of the Saturday Academy of Law at UC Irvine (“SALUCI”) in approximately 2008-2009. Here too vast and intense suspicious circumstances exist as the funds from CaliforniaALL actually went to the UC Irvine Foundation, where the present executive director of the State Bar of California (Senator Joe Dunn) serves as a member of the audit committee, and it turns out that the SALUCI was actually already created in 2005 and was fully operational before CaliforniaALL arrived on the scene. In addition, some records seem to indicate that Verizon Wireless funneled the money directly to SALUCI , while CaliforniaALL took the credit.

Initially, due to circumstances which cannot be viewed as mere coincidence, I was under the impression that funds have been misappropriated from the California Bar Foundation by Voice of OC — specifically, by its founders 1) Joe Dunn and 2) Martha Escutia (both former state senators who were overseeing utility companies and the CPUC and investigating the California energy crisis), and 3) Thomas Girardi and 4) James Brosnahan who were litigating cases involving the California energy crisis on opposite sides, and/or Geoffrey Brown, former Commissioner of the California Public Utilities Commission and 2007 Director of the Foundation during the time of the suspicious transfer of funds to CaliforniaALL (an entity of which CPUC’s Peter Arth was one of the main initiators).

However futile, I asked the State Bar of California to investigate the matter. While the Foundation alleges that the source of the (relatively) large sum of $774,247 which it transferred to CaliforniaALL was from four utility companies (AT&T, PG&E, Edison International, and Verizon Wireless — as reflected in the Foundation’s 2008 Annual Report and tax return showing contributions to CaliforniaALL), there is no corresponding entry in any Foundation tax return (for tax years 2007 or 2008), nor any mention in the Annual Report, showing the initial receipt of those funds.

Nevertheless, I continued with the inquiry as large pieces of the puzzle were missing, and in fact stated so in a letter seeking information about one of the actor’s employment history. However, within the past several weeks, I believe that I finally managed to put all the pieces together.

These facts raised suspicions that money has been misappropriated from the Foundation, and places those individuals who controlled the Foundation (Jeffrey Bleich, Annette Carnegie, Douglas Winthrop, Ruthe Catolico Ashley, Geoffrey Brown, and others), who “legally” created CaliforniaALL (James Brosnahan, Tony West, Chris Young, Susan Mac Cormac, and Annette Carnegie of the San Francisco office of Morrison & Foerster), who controlled the money (Ophelia Basgal of PG&E; Douglas Winthrop, attorney for PG&E; Jeffrey Bleich, attorney for Verizon Wireless; and Edison (client of James Brosnahan, Tony West, Chris Young, and Annette Carnegie), who controlled CaliforniaALL (Ruthe Ashley, Ophelia Basgal), and who controlled the finances for the Obama for America’s 2008 campaign (Jeffrey Bleich, Tony West, and Chris Young) in a very awkward position.

In my opinion, and based on the information I’ve discovered, it appears that funds were misappropriated and/or laundered through the California Bar Foundation by various individuals through the misuse of CaliforniaALL. Although other potential explanations certainly exist, based on these individuals’ involvement in the “Obama for America” 2008 presidential campaign (as discussed below), one likely possibility is that the funds were unlawfully misdirected to that campaign.

Dear Members and Others,

The attached articles deal with two subjects that are inexorably intertwined. The first by Courthouse News reporter, Maria Dinzeo, recounts the fact that the Chief Justice has reappointed three current members to the Judicial Council. The second article, by The Recorder’s Cheryl Miller, details a recent legislative hearing that focused on the money-sucking Long Beach Courthouse.

These two issues must be viewed in the larger context of a dysfunctional form of branch governance and the lack of a real system of checks and balances.

Reappointing the same judges/justices who have failed to appropriately oversee the bloated and entrenched bureaucracy is not a recipe for success. Rather, it is history repeating itself. We have not found a single instance when any of these three re-appointed members has voted against an AOC staff recommendation. They have fallen in lock-step with the other appointees who supported the failed CCMS project and repeatedly overlooked wasteful spending on court construction and maintenance. Recently each joined in rejecting the Chief Justice’s Strategic Evaluation Committee’s recommendation to end telecommuting for central office staff.

And that history brings us to the second article concerning the Long Beach Courthouse.

The Alliance has obtained an un-redacted copy of the building and maintenance contract that has left the judiciary on the hook for $2.3 billion over the next 35 years. We looked high and we looked low in an effort to learn who entered into this agreement where the construction/maintenance company bore zero risk. We can tell you that NO local court officials inked this deal. The bureaucrats from the AOC own this debacle from A to Z.

The Legislative Analyst correctly observed that the Long Beach project would go way over budget. That same Legislative Analyst had presciently warned that CCMS had not been properly vetted and was in danger of failing. Again the warnings have been ignored. And who suffers for these blunders? Certainly not those who entered into these contracts from the central office or the Council members who have repeatedly failed to rein them in. Instead the price is paid by every trial court in this state that is forced to layoff critically needed staff, close courtrooms and courthouses, make do with unsafe and overcrowded facilities, and shorten business hours for the public seeking redress.

Last week the Chief Justice addressed both houses of the Legislature. In her remarks she observed: “Structurally” the judicial branch was “reborn a mere 16 years ago.” Later in referring to the branch as “16 years young” she went on to say, “Like any adolescent it needs a check-in.” The Alliance would go one step further in this analogy: What adult in their right mind would give a 16-year-old carte blanche to spend over three billion dollars a year and not expect bad decision making and wasteful spending?

As we did with the CCMS fiasco, the Alliance is asking for the Legislature — which appropriated these monies the AOC and Judicial Council have so badly mismanaged — to direct respected State Auditor Elaine Howle to conduct an audit of the construction and maintenance programs overseen by the AOC. We caution the legislature not to be misled into thinking that the AOC-commissioned Pegasus report is comparable to a real independent audit, any more than were AOC-sponsored reports on CCMS. It is not. What is needed is an independent evaluation, just as was done with CCMS.

Finally, we thank State Senator Loni Hancock for shining the light on the Long Beach Court financing debacle by holding a public meeting. Senator Hancock’s question to AOC staff: “How did you let this happen?” — referencing the apparent belief by branch leaders that the State General Fund would pay for this behemoth — harkens eerily back to the days when our branch leaders and AOC staff attempted to shift responsibility for the concept of CCMS onto past Governors. Nonsense.

February 11, 2013

Dear Members and Others,

You probably have heard the expression, “The more things change, the more they seem to stay the same.” Well, indeed that appears to be true with the creation of yet another Judicial Council task force that will “develop a strategic plan for court technology.”

Some of you may wonder why this is happening when the Chairman of the powerful Judicial Council’s Rules Committee recently announced the reduction of committees and task forces. Although the Alliance is unable to answer that question, we cannot fail to make certain observations which should concern all of us as we attempt to rehabilitate the branch’s reputation and image with the Governor’s Office and the Legislature.

We need not take the time to restate in detail the colossal and embarrassing computer fiasco presided over by the Council and AOC staff known as CCMS. The bottom line is that over a half billion public dollars were wasted on a system that was ill conceived, poorly executed and doomed from the start due to, among other things, competency issues. This is not just our opinion. This was the conclusion made by respected State Auditor Elaine Howle after an exhaustive audit of the program, an audit that our branch leaders attempted to kill as “duplicative.”

We also should remember that, but for legislative intervention and years of vocal opposition from judges of the Alliance and others, public monies would still be flowing into CCMS. In fact, branch leaders continue to claim that CCMS works. They describe CCMS as a “Ferrari” for which we do not have the resources to fill the tank. So, there our valuable investment sits in a garage with no ability to go anywhere fast.

Which brings us to the new task force. The Chief Justice has appointed Judge James Herman to chair the task force. One of CCMS’s most vocal supporters, Judge Herman has sat on virtually every committee and task force connected to CCMS. In addition to this new task force, which will report to the Judicial Council’s Technology Committee, Judge Herman coincidentally also chairs that committee. So, in effect, he will be reporting to himself.

Making matters that much more efficient, the following members of the new task force also serve on Judge Herman’s Technology Committee: the Hon. Terrence Bruniers, Hon. Judith Ashmann-Gerst, Hon. Ira Kaufman and the Hon. Robert Moss. These members will likewise be reporting to themselves.

Staffing the new task force is Jessica Craven, who works in the AOC’s Information Technology Services Office. That is quite convenient as Ms. Craven also serves as the AOC staffer to Judge Herman’s Technology Committee. You should be aware that, prior to Ms. Craven’s new assignment to the IS division, she was assigned as a Senior Business Analyst in the Southern Regional Office which was tasked with developing and implementing CCMS. As of July 8, 2011, Ms. Craven was employed in the “CCMS Division,” which sometime thereafter morphed into the “IS Division.”

Clearly technology issues need to be addressed. Those early adopter courts which relied on CCMS being a game changer are now left with an outdated program which is expensive to maintain and operate, with no ability to purchase a replacement due to budget cuts.

It is shameful that our branch wasted over half a billion dollars on a failed computer system. We must take bold and immediate steps to restore our credibility with the Governor, Legislature, Legislative Analyst’s Office, the State Auditor and the Department of Finance. Creating “new” task forces and committees populated with the same leaders who presided over CCMS is not a winning strategy. Nor will this shell game impress the smart and sophisticated legislators and staff members who witnessed the CCMS disaster up close and personal.

As another example of how little things have changed in the operations of the AOC and Judicial Council, we offer a news report from KCRA in Sacramento about travel expenses for Judicial Council meetings. The story notes that more than $50,000 was spent last year on hotel accommodations for Judicial Council members. If these handpicked court leaders were effective stewards of the courts’ limited resources perhaps some travel expenses for their meetings could be justified, but at a time when the courts continue to be asked to do more with less shouldn’t we see a greater effort on their part to reduce these expenses? A direct link to the news video appears here.

These are just the latest examples of why the Alliance remains determined to bring democratic representation to the Judicial Council. “Speaking with one voice” only perpetuates and ensures that past mistakes will continue to be repeated. The continued unchecked spending of the Judicial Council, and the creation and operation of task forces that fail to provide meaningful oversight of projects like CCMS, further illustrate that these appointed court leaders do not embrace meaningful reform. The Alliance will continue to advocate for real change on behalf of our local courts.

Directors,

Alliance of California Judges
