The Sun will Shine on Sonnenschein: Is Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal’s James Hsu of CaliforniaALL More Than Just a Garden Variety “Utility APA” ?? (TLR Editorial Notes: 1. Incidentally, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal represents Yolo County’s Cache Creek Casino which pays the salaries of Michael Cabral, Jeff Reisig, Jonathan Raven, Bruce Naliboff, Etc. 2. Based on many factors, It now appears that shenanigans surrounding CaliforniaALL was most likely related to, among others, “OBAMA FOR AMERICA,” and various other election campaigns i.e. Kevin Johnson, Kamala Harris, Steve Poizner, Jerry Brown Etc. (readers must ask themselves, if CaliforniaALL was Kosher, why would Keker & Van Nest attempt to “hide” Chris Young i.e. “Three-Card-Monte.” 3. Also under scrutiny is the relationship between Morrison & Foerster, Client Station Casinos, Cache Creek Casino, Hon. Chief Marshall McKay )]

BREAKING NEWS: YR amends title of prospective suit ; adds to list of defendants Peter Arth , Timothy Simon, Geoffrey Brown, Dian Grueneich [ TLR Notes: Per YR, suit to be filed probably by Monday or Tuesday of next week. During weekend apprehensive YR to further contemplate how to best achieve objectives, venue, causes of actions, additional defendants (especially all 2007-2008 Cal Bar Foundation Directors i,e, Holly Fujie, Douglas Winthrop, Jeff Bleich ; all 2007-2008 UC Irvine Foundation ; Stephen Leo “Steve” Poizner of DOI), cross the t’s and dot the i’s 2. Rational behind amending style of suit from “John Doe v. Allen Matkins” to “John Doe v. Michael Peevey” to better achieve objectives of legal action by obtaining support of law makers/consumer groups/general public who are much more interested in “CPUC/Utilities Corruption” (rather than “California Bar Corruption.”) 3. Causes of action against Peter Arth (aka “Mayor Juana”), Timothy Simon, Dian Grueneich, Geoffrey Brown in individual capacity re conspiracy to create sham non-profit (“CaliforniaALL”) which will serve as vehicle to embezzle/launder money, and for voting (saved Brown) to appoint Freada Kapor Klein as “consensus director,” etc.]

Google’s GoogleBot and The Leslie Brodie Report Are BROGEZ, Again

Googlebot — Google’s web crawling bot (sometimes also called a “spider”) and The Leslie Brodie Report are at it, again.  As was stated recently, under normal circumstances, an article published on The Leslie Brodie Network (i.e. The Leslie Brodie Report, or a supporting platform) will encounter the Googlebot within minutes;  which in turn,  will add the article to the Google index.

However, much to the collective chagrin of staff-members of The Leslie Brodie Report, Google, once again, stop indexing stories appearing on TLR.  Specifically, a developing story dealing with an upcoming lawsuit to be filed in Sacramento Superior Court,  hasn’t been indexed.  This developing story may be viewed below, or by visiting @:  http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2013/01/29/john-doe-v-allen-matkins-robert-hamilton-karina-hamilton-morrison-foerster-sarah-redfield-unh-school-of-law-ruthe-catolico-ashley-et-al-tlr-cover-15479901/

News Update on Criminal Defendant Lauren Redfern / Civil-RICO Defendants Howard Dickstein and Spouse (Jeannine English) as The Leslie Brodie Report Launches Inquiry to Investigate Persistent Rumors Dickstein Officially Employed at Obama’s White House

Lauren Redfern

 Lauren Redfern, a former female Basalt High School gym teacher who had been charged with sexual assault on a student, was sentenced, but faces no prison time.

Lauren Redfern Basalt High

Lauren Redfern, 26, was sentenced Tuesday.

Redfern, 26, was arrested after she was caught by the school’s athletic director having sex with a student in the teacher’s restroom. At the time Redfern was charged with two felony counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust with a pattern of sexual abuse, a class 3 felony.

“They were caught in a room they shouldn’t have been in together and that’s what started this investigation. And they admitted what was going on,” Eagle County Undersheriff Mike McWilliams told CBS4 shortly after Redfern’s arrest. Please continue @: http://tinyurl.com/ctcqgr9

Howard Dickstein / Jeannine English

Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English — who served as a “public member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors since 2006 — is no longer part of the board, TLR has learned.

English is married to Howard Dickstein –  a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry.

Recently, both Dickstein and English were named as defendants in two separate RICO suits —  advanced by  Spire Law Group and Dan Dydzak.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

TIMELINE September 2009: Gary M. Cohen of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal Disqualified (TLR Note: Sources maintain Cohen’s disquieting background under scrutiny)

Fri Sep 4, 2009 10:21pm EDT

Attorneys for First American Title Insurance Co. Were Disqualified From Four
Class Action Lawsuits in One Day
Alleged Ethical Conflict Bars Chicago Law Firm from Continuing to Defend First
American Title.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ — Today, counsel for both sides in four
class action lawsuits received a sealed ruling from Los Angeles Superior Court
judge Anthony J. Mohr, of the complex litigation panel.  According to an
unsealed minute order issued by Judge Mohr earlier in the week, the sealed
ruling received today grants plaintiffs’ motions, brought in all four class
actions, to disqualify the international law firm of Sonnenschein, Nath &
Rosenthal, and all of the firm’s attorneys, from continuing to represent the
defendants – First American Title Insurance Company and related entities.

First American Title traces its history to 1889 and is one of the world’s
largest title insurance companies.  Its parent is First American Corporation,
a Fortune 500 company, publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Sonnenschein law firm, founded more than a century ago,  is one of the
largest full service law firms in the U.S., with 800 lawyers in 13 offices in
the U.S. and Europe, and has a “global reach throughout the Americas, Asia and
the Middle East,” according to its web site.  The firm “serves the needs of
many of the world’s best known and most admired businesses,” according to its
web site.

The are four California class actions against First American in which First
American’s counsel were disqualified:

    1. Jeffrey Sjobring v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC329482
    2. Elizabeth Wilmot , Jason Munro v. First American Title, et al, LASC
Case
       No. BC370141
    3. Patrick Kirk v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC372797

    4. Kaufman v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC382826

Sonnenschein attorneys who were direct subjects of the disqualification motion
include partners Charles Newman and Jason Maschmann of the St. Louis office,
partner Joel Siegel of the Los Angeles office, and partner Gary M. Cohen of
the San Francisco office.  Until 2007, Gary Cohen was Deputy Commissioner and
General Counsel at the California Department of Insurance, where he served as
chief legal advisor to Commissioners Steve Poizner and John Garamendi,
according to his biography on the Sonnenshein web site.

First American Title was represented in the disqualification proceedings by
“special counsel” — attorneys Peter Q. Ezzell and Nancy E. Lucas, of the
Haight, Brown & Bonesteel firm, as well as by Sonnenschein partner Ronald D.
Kent.

Lead counsel for plaintiffs and class members in all four cases are Los
Angeles attorneys Steven Jay “Bernie” Bernheim of The Bernheim Law Firm, and
Taras Kick of The Kick Law Firm.  Bernheim , an insurance litigator for 20
years, is a past recipient of California Lawyer ‘s Attorney of the Year
(“CLAY”) award, and was nominated by Trial Lawyers for Public Justice as a
finalist for National Trial Lawyer of the Year.  Kick is one of California’s
leading consumer class action litigators.

The disqualification ruling was the end result of a six month procedure,
during which Judge Mohr held six separate hearings, conducted an in- camera
examination of confidential documents, and reviewed nearly three feet of
briefing, declarations and documentary evidence.

“One thing that both sides can doubtless agree on is that Judge Mohr was
extremely thorough and careful in his consideration of these sensitive
motions,” Bernheim observes.

Immediately after issuing the ruling disqualifying Sonnenschein from all four
cases, Judge Mohr began a three month assignment as a temporary justice of the
Second Appellate District.

According to the court’s records, First American was originally represented in
the litigation by the St. Louis and Los Angeles offices of the Bryan, Cave law
firm.  The First American defense team at Bryan Cave included attorneys
Newman, Maschmann and Siegel, who eventually left Bryan Cave to become
partners at Sonnenschein in February 2009.  They took the First American
litigation with them to Sonnenschein. Gary Cohen was already a partner at
Sonnenschein at this time.

According to publicly available portions of plaintiffs’ disqualification
papers, before Mr. Cohen became a partner at Sonnenschein, plaintiffs counsel
Bernheim and Kick had on several occasions communicated with Mr. Cohen about
retaining/employing Mr. Cohen to work on behalf of plaintiffs in the First
American litigation.  In so doing, plaintiffs counsel communicated extensive
confidential work product information to Mr. Cohen, according to the publicly
filed documents.

When Mr. Cohen became a Sonnenschein partner, plaintiffs’ counsel again
contacted Mr. Cohen, expressing interest in retaining him through the firm,
according to plaintiffs’ publicly filed papers.  According to the publicly
filed papers, Mr. Cohen caused a conflict check to be run at Sonnenschein.  He
reported that there was a conflict, and that he and the firm could not work
with plaintiffs against First American in this litigation.

Three weeks after that, Sonnenschein filed a substitution of attorney and
became counsel of record against plaintiffs in the very same litigation
plaintiffs counsel had discussed with Sonnenshein partner Cohen.  Sonnenschein
was now adverse to a party in the very litigation where they had nearly been
retained only weeks before, and where a conflict check had revealed there was
indeed a conflict, according to the publicly available documents filed by
plaintiffs in Superior Court.

Plaintiffs filed the motion to disqualify Cohen and the entire Sonnenschein
firm in early March 2009.  Defendants responded by representing they had built
an “ethical wall” around Mr. Cohen at Sonnenschein.  In court-filed documents,
defendants alleged that the wall prohibited communications pertaining to these
cases between Mr. Cohen and the Sonnenschein (formerly Bryan Cave) litigation
team.

About six weeks later, according to public records in the court file, the
Sonnenschein defense team submitted to Judge Mohr a trial court order from
another judge in another First American Title case.  The Sonnenschein defense
team (Mr. Newman, Mr. Maschmann, Mr. Siegel, et al) urged J. Mohr to dismiss
these cases based on that order.  They stated that the order in the other case
was “directly relevant” to the cases before Judge Mohr.

In court-filed papers, plaintiffs stated that —

    —  Gary Cohen was in fact one of the lawyers working on this other
        “directly relevant” case.
    —  Gary Cohen’s work in that “directly relevant” case was
        adverse to plaintiffs’ interests here.

    —  Gary Cohen did that work despite having received confidential
        information from plaintiffs, and did that work despite
        Sonnenschein’s representation that Mr. Cohen would abide by their
        “ethical wall.”

In a publicly filed declaration, First American Title’s in-house counsel, Mr.
Timothy P. Sullivan, Esq., testified that the Sonnenschein lawyers hold
“unique and irreplaceable knowledge” pertaining to the litigation.  He also
testified that these class actions “are the most aggressively litigated and
complex proceedings that I have experienced in my 35 years of practice.”

Mr. Sullivan testified that First American has incurred more than $5,500,000
in attorney’s fees and $1,000,000 in additional expenses in defending them.

Plaintiffs’ litigation claims include the following, as set out in public
documents in the court file:

    —  that First American Title charged California consumers higher premiums
        for title insurance than allowed under the rates First American had
        filed with the California Department of Insurance.
    —  that this is unlawful; a title insurance company is only allowed to
        charge premiums calculated according to the filed rates.
    —  that First American Title filed a special rate benefiting
policyholders
        who had First American’s extended coverage “Eagle Owners”
        policy.  This special filed rate entitled these homeowners to a lower
        premium when paying for the additional title coverage usually required
        by mortgage lenders. However, First American Title typically charged
        this class of consumers more for the lender coverage than the rates
        allowed.

    —  that First American clearly stated in an internal memorandum written
        when the Eagle Owners policy was created that this “was filed with
        the Department of Insurance in its extended form,” not as
        “standard coverage.”  As contained in a public court document,
        a very senior First American Title executive testified that “we
        were informing the Department of Insurance and everybody else that
        issued in that form [the Eagle Owners policy] provides extended
        coverage.”

Despite this, in court-filed documents, First American has recently
represented to the superior court  the exact opposite:   “Nothing states that
the Eagle Owner’s policy is ‘extended coverage’; the Eagle Owner’s policy is
necessarily ‘standard coverage’.”

“First American Title is apparently talking out of both sides of its mouth,”
observes class representative Jeffrey Sjobring.

“In this litigation, the consumers also allege that First American’s rates,
were, at best, ambiguous,” states class counsel Kick.

Everyday there home sales transactions in California in which the home seller
pays First American Title for a title policy that protects the home buyer.
Often, especially in Southern California, a home seller, like class
representative Patrick Kirk, will use an independent escrow company to carry
out the transaction.   One of First American Title’s defenses, stated in
court-filed documents,  is that First American Title has no duty to advise
these home sellers about which title policy to buy, or about the appropriate
pricing of the policies.

As part of their defense to the litigation, First American states in publicly
available court papers that  home sellers like Mr. Kirk are simply not
“customers” or “consumers” – despite the fact that they pay for the title
policies!

As stated in court-filed documents, the First American title officer for two
of the class representatives, Mr. Kirk and Mr. Sjobring, testified that First
American had, in just five years with the company, paid her $1.5 million in
compensation, most of it in commissions.  She also testified that “the more
premium the buyers, sellers and refinancers of homes pay to First American,”
the more money she personally makes.

the Eagle Owner’s policy is ‘extended coverage’; the Eagle Owner’s policy is
necessarily ‘standard coverage’.”

“First American Title is apparently talking out of both sides of its mouth,”
observes class representative Jeffrey Sjobring.

“In this litigation, the consumers also allege that First American’s rates,
were, at best, ambiguous,” states class counsel Kick.

Everyday there home sales transactions in California in which the home seller
pays First American Title for a title policy that protects the home buyer.
Often, especially in Southern California, a home seller, like class
representative Patrick Kirk, will use an independent escrow company to carry
out the transaction.   One of First American Title’s defenses, stated in
court-filed documents,  is that First American Title has no duty to advise
these home sellers about which title policy to buy, or about the appropriate
pricing of the policies.

As part of their defense to the litigation, First American states in publicly
available court papers that  home sellers like Mr. Kirk are simply not
“customers” or “consumers” – despite the fact that they pay for the title
policies!

As stated in court-filed documents, the First American title officer for two
of the class representatives, Mr. Kirk and Mr. Sjobring, testified that First
American had, in just five years with the company, paid her $1.5 million in
compensation, most of it in commissions.  She also testified that “the more
premium the buyers, sellers and refinancers of homes pay to First American,”
the more money she personally makes.

TIMELINE September 2009: Gary M. Cohen of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal Disqualified (TLR Note: Sources maintain Cohen’s disquieting background under scrutiny)

Fri Sep 4, 2009 10:21pm EDT

Attorneys for First American Title Insurance Co. Were Disqualified From Four
Class Action Lawsuits in One Day
Alleged Ethical Conflict Bars Chicago Law Firm from Continuing to Defend First
American Title.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ — Today, counsel for both sides in four
class action lawsuits received a sealed ruling from Los Angeles Superior Court
judge Anthony J. Mohr, of the complex litigation panel.  According to an
unsealed minute order issued by Judge Mohr earlier in the week, the sealed
ruling received today grants plaintiffs’ motions, brought in all four class
actions, to disqualify the international law firm of Sonnenschein, Nath &
Rosenthal, and all of the firm’s attorneys, from continuing to represent the
defendants – First American Title Insurance Company and related entities.

First American Title traces its history to 1889 and is one of the world’s
largest title insurance companies.  Its parent is First American Corporation,
a Fortune 500 company, publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Sonnenschein law firm, founded more than a century ago,  is one of the
largest full service law firms in the U.S., with 800 lawyers in 13 offices in
the U.S. and Europe, and has a “global reach throughout the Americas, Asia and
the Middle East,” according to its web site.  The firm “serves the needs of
many of the world’s best known and most admired businesses,” according to its
web site.

The are four California class actions against First American in which First
American’s counsel were disqualified:

    1. Jeffrey Sjobring v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC329482
    2. Elizabeth Wilmot , Jason Munro v. First American Title, et al, LASC
Case
       No. BC370141
    3. Patrick Kirk v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC372797

    4. Kaufman v. First American Title, et al, LASC Case No. BC382826

Sonnenschein attorneys who were direct subjects of the disqualification motion
include partners Charles Newman and Jason Maschmann of the St. Louis office,
partner Joel Siegel of the Los Angeles office, and partner Gary M. Cohen of
the San Francisco office.  Until 2007, Gary Cohen was Deputy Commissioner and
General Counsel at the California Department of Insurance, where he served as
chief legal advisor to Commissioners Steve Poizner and John Garamendi,
according to his biography on the Sonnenshein web site.

First American Title was represented in the disqualification proceedings by
“special counsel” — attorneys Peter Q. Ezzell and Nancy E. Lucas, of the
Haight, Brown & Bonesteel firm, as well as by Sonnenschein partner Ronald D.
Kent.

Lead counsel for plaintiffs and class members in all four cases are Los
Angeles attorneys Steven Jay “Bernie” Bernheim of The Bernheim Law Firm, and
Taras Kick of The Kick Law Firm.  Bernheim , an insurance litigator for 20
years, is a past recipient of California Lawyer ‘s Attorney of the Year
(“CLAY”) award, and was nominated by Trial Lawyers for Public Justice as a
finalist for National Trial Lawyer of the Year.  Kick is one of California’s
leading consumer class action litigators.

The disqualification ruling was the end result of a six month procedure,
during which Judge Mohr held six separate hearings, conducted an in- camera
examination of confidential documents, and reviewed nearly three feet of
briefing, declarations and documentary evidence.

“One thing that both sides can doubtless agree on is that Judge Mohr was
extremely thorough and careful in his consideration of these sensitive
motions,” Bernheim observes.

Immediately after issuing the ruling disqualifying Sonnenschein from all four
cases, Judge Mohr began a three month assignment as a temporary justice of the
Second Appellate District.

According to the court’s records, First American was originally represented in
the litigation by the St. Louis and Los Angeles offices of the Bryan, Cave law
firm.  The First American defense team at Bryan Cave included attorneys
Newman, Maschmann and Siegel, who eventually left Bryan Cave to become
partners at Sonnenschein in February 2009.  They took the First American
litigation with them to Sonnenschein. Gary Cohen was already a partner at
Sonnenschein at this time.

According to publicly available portions of plaintiffs’ disqualification
papers, before Mr. Cohen became a partner at Sonnenschein, plaintiffs counsel
Bernheim and Kick had on several occasions communicated with Mr. Cohen about
retaining/employing Mr. Cohen to work on behalf of plaintiffs in the First
American litigation.  In so doing, plaintiffs counsel communicated extensive
confidential work product information to Mr. Cohen, according to the publicly
filed documents.

When Mr. Cohen became a Sonnenschein partner, plaintiffs’ counsel again
contacted Mr. Cohen, expressing interest in retaining him through the firm,
according to plaintiffs’ publicly filed papers.  According to the publicly
filed papers, Mr. Cohen caused a conflict check to be run at Sonnenschein.  He
reported that there was a conflict, and that he and the firm could not work
with plaintiffs against First American in this litigation.

Three weeks after that, Sonnenschein filed a substitution of attorney and
became counsel of record against plaintiffs in the very same litigation
plaintiffs counsel had discussed with Sonnenshein partner Cohen.  Sonnenschein
was now adverse to a party in the very litigation where they had nearly been
retained only weeks before, and where a conflict check had revealed there was
indeed a conflict, according to the publicly available documents filed by
plaintiffs in Superior Court.

Plaintiffs filed the motion to disqualify Cohen and the entire Sonnenschein
firm in early March 2009.  Defendants responded by representing they had built
an “ethical wall” around Mr. Cohen at Sonnenschein.  In court-filed documents,
defendants alleged that the wall prohibited communications pertaining to these
cases between Mr. Cohen and the Sonnenschein (formerly Bryan Cave) litigation
team.

About six weeks later, according to public records in the court file, the
Sonnenschein defense team submitted to Judge Mohr a trial court order from
another judge in another First American Title case.  The Sonnenschein defense
team (Mr. Newman, Mr. Maschmann, Mr. Siegel, et al) urged J. Mohr to dismiss
these cases based on that order.  They stated that the order in the other case
was “directly relevant” to the cases before Judge Mohr.

In court-filed papers, plaintiffs stated that —

    —  Gary Cohen was in fact one of the lawyers working on this other
        “directly relevant” case.
    —  Gary Cohen’s work in that “directly relevant” case was
        adverse to plaintiffs’ interests here.

    —  Gary Cohen did that work despite having received confidential
        information from plaintiffs, and did that work despite
        Sonnenschein’s representation that Mr. Cohen would abide by their
        “ethical wall.”

In a publicly filed declaration, First American Title’s in-house counsel, Mr.
Timothy P. Sullivan, Esq., testified that the Sonnenschein lawyers hold
“unique and irreplaceable knowledge” pertaining to the litigation.  He also
testified that these class actions “are the most aggressively litigated and
complex proceedings that I have experienced in my 35 years of practice.”

Mr. Sullivan testified that First American has incurred more than $5,500,000
in attorney’s fees and $1,000,000 in additional expenses in defending them.

Plaintiffs’ litigation claims include the following, as set out in public
documents in the court file:

    —  that First American Title charged California consumers higher premiums
        for title insurance than allowed under the rates First American had
        filed with the California Department of Insurance.
    —  that this is unlawful; a title insurance company is only allowed to
        charge premiums calculated according to the filed rates.
    —  that First American Title filed a special rate benefiting
policyholders
        who had First American’s extended coverage “Eagle Owners”
        policy.  This special filed rate entitled these homeowners to a lower
        premium when paying for the additional title coverage usually required
        by mortgage lenders. However, First American Title typically charged
        this class of consumers more for the lender coverage than the rates
        allowed.

    —  that First American clearly stated in an internal memorandum written
        when the Eagle Owners policy was created that this “was filed with
        the Department of Insurance in its extended form,” not as
        “standard coverage.”  As contained in a public court document,
        a very senior First American Title executive testified that “we
        were informing the Department of Insurance and everybody else that
        issued in that form [the Eagle Owners policy] provides extended
        coverage.”

Despite this, in court-filed documents, First American has recently
represented to the superior court  the exact opposite:   “Nothing states that
the Eagle Owner’s policy is ‘extended coverage’; the Eagle Owner’s policy is
necessarily ‘standard coverage’.”

“First American Title is apparently talking out of both sides of its mouth,”
observes class representative Jeffrey Sjobring.

“In this litigation, the consumers also allege that First American’s rates,
were, at best, ambiguous,” states class counsel Kick.

Everyday there home sales transactions in California in which the home seller
pays First American Title for a title policy that protects the home buyer.
Often, especially in Southern California, a home seller, like class
representative Patrick Kirk, will use an independent escrow company to carry

Members of United Auburn Indian Community Complain to National Indian Gaming Commission Against Nefarious Howard Dickstein

Lending significant support to calls for an examination of corruption by Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi,  a sharply-worded complaint was filed recently with the National Indian Gaming Commission.

In that complaint, members of the United Auburn Indian Community minced no words in accusing Dickstein of abuse and financial atrocities.   United Auburn Indian Community operates the Thunder Valley Casino, situated between the cities of Roseville and Lincoln, in Placer County, California.

Howard Dicstein, Jerry Brown, Mark Friedman, Doug Elmets

Members of the “J Street Gang of Greed” (L-R ) California Governor Jerry Brown, Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi, Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property and Doug Elmets.  Currently, the Elliott Building is occupied on separate floors by the offices of Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi, Fulcrum Property’s Mark Friedman, Arlen Opper, Doug Elmets, Paula Lorenzo of Cache Creek Casino, and The California Tribal Business Alliance (CTBA). Dickstein, Friedman, and Opper were all named defendants in the matter of Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians / Cache Creek Casino v. Howard Dickstein. The penthouse unit is the official residence of California’s first couple — Governor Edmund Gerald “Jerry” Brown, Jr.  and his wife. (Image: courtesy photo) (Image:courtesy photos)

The main complainants against Dickstein are former chairwoman of the United Auburn Indian Community, the Honorable Jessica Tavares and long-time tribal council member Dolly Suehead.

Tavares is a proud visionary who was the force behind the economic and cultural revival of the tribe — as well as the revival of surrounding communities.  Sadly, Tavares was ultimately betrayed by a fellow member of the tribe and placed on the proverbial iceberg because she chose honor, integrity, and dignity for herself and for the tribe over the greed and divisiveness promoted Dickstein in his quest to obtained millions for himself and by extension for his wife,  Jeannine English.

Since 2006, Jeannine English has served as a “public member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, an otherwise governmental entity primarily responsible to disciplining errant lawyers.  Despite allegations that Dickstein has committed countless acts of grave misconduct and ethical breaches, Dickstein has never been disciplined by the State Bar of California.  English’s appointment as a public member was courtesy of her California Democratic Party confederates who control California’s legislative branch.

Unfortunately, the two U.S. Senators from California refuse to become involved in these issues despite the fact that  tribal matters fall primarily within federal oversight. Dickstein, in his role as counsel for the tribes, has overseen the tribes’ contributions of millions of dollars to the coffers of the Democratic Party.

Fortunately, Republican Arizona Senator John McCain recently stepped in and called for an investigation of Howard Dickstein.  Similarly, a few months prior to Senator McCain’s announcement, a Yolo County-based rabbi asked the State Bar of California Board of Governors to investigate English and Dickstein.

Dickstein, a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry, has also been named a defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant was Dickstein’s wife Jeannine English

The lawsuit alleges that Dickstein and English executed a scheme that caused injury to the Plaintiff, a Southern California resident who claims his privacy and constitutional rights were “egregiously violated.”

Specifically, the suit alleges that in order to camouflage a scheme and make it appear as though it is purely a mundane action by a governmental agency and was not designed to conceal Dickstein’s and English’s own acts of malfeasance, greed, and betrayal, defendants resorted to abusing their considerable “political and legal clout.”

This clout was presumably obtained as a result of the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars from myriad Tribal Casinos to various state and local governmental agencies/officials, as well as from English’s position as a member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, and the fact that the president of the State Bar of California, Jon Streeter, and his firm of Keker & Van Nest, represent Howard Dickstein. This , the plaintiff alleges, shows “malice and oppression” on the part of defendants sufficient to justify an award of punitive damages.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

While the suit was pending, further allegations of grave misconduct were leveled against Dickstein and his attorneys of San Francisco-based Keker & Van Nest including claims that evidence was “manufactured.” Later, Dickstein and his lawyers of Keker & Van Nest (presumably, John Keker, Elliot Peters, and Jon Streeter) falsely advertised and misled the public into believing that the Yocha Dehe tribe had only sued Dickstein for conduct which was “negligent” in nature. Dickstein and his legal team neglected to reference the allegations of defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade through fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion, breaches of fiduciary duties, and misrepresentations which the tribe had leveled against their own attorney.

Lori Lowenthal Marcus, Esq. — Is Hereby Asked to Opine on Financial Atrocities Against Native Americans by “J Street PAC” Board Member Howard Dickstein; Spouse Jeannine English — Member of State Bar of California Board of Governors/Trustees


The Elliott Building, 1530 J Street Sacramento, CA 95814. The building is owned by Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Properly Group.  Currently, the Elliott Building is occupied on separate floors by the offices of Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi, Fulcrum Property’s Mark Friedman, Arlen Opper, Doug Elmets, Paula Lorenzo of Cache Creek Casino, and The California Tribal Business Alliance (CTBA).
Dickstein, Friedman, and Opper were all named defendants in the matter of Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians / Cache Creek Casino v. Howard Dickstein. The penthouse unit is the official residence of California’s first couple — Governor Edmund Gerald “Jerry” Brown, Jr.  and his wife. (Image: courtesy photo)

The abuse and financial atrocities by attorney Howard Dickstein (on behalf of himself, as well as others) against his clients — Native Americans who are members of various Indian tribes operating casinos in the State of California — are well documented.

Hard hit were the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation which operates the Cache Creek Casino in Yolo County, the Pala Band of Mission Indians which operates the Pala Casino Resort & Spa in San Diego County, and the United Auburn Indian Community which operates the Thunder Valley Casino in Placer County.

One such incident resulted in the emotionally distressing injustice inflicted on the bona fide founder of Thunder Valley Casino, the ex-chair of the tribe, Jessica Tavares.

Jessica is a proud visionary who was the force behind the economic and cultural revival of the tribe — as well as the revival of surrounding communities.  Sadly, Jessica was ultimately betrayed by a fellow member of the tribe and placed on the proverbial iceberg because she chose honor, integrity, and dignity for herself and for the tribe over the greed and divisiveness promoted by Howard Dickstein in his quest to obtained millions for himself and by extension for his wife,  Jeannine English.

Since 2006, Jeannine English has served as a “public member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, an otherwise governmental entity primarily responsible to disciplining errant lawyers.  Despite allegations that Dickstein has committed countless acts of grave misconduct and ethical breaches, Dickstein has never been disciplined by the State Bar of California.  English’s appointment as a public member was courtesy of her California Democratic Party confederates who control California’s legislative branch.

Fortunately, Republican Arizona Senator John McCain recently stepped in and called for an investigation of Howard Dickstein.  Similarly, a few months prior to Senator McCain’s announcement, a Yolo County-based rabbi asked the State Bar of California Board of Governors to investigate English and Dickstein.

The J Street Gang of Greed

In approximately 2004, as part of an effort to revitalize its downtown area, the city of Sacramento poured three million dollars into subsidies for the renovation of the “Elliott Building” located at 1530 J Street in Sacramento.  The project was initiated by Mark Friedman of Sacramento-based Fulcrum Property Group and a few of his business partners.

Howard Dicstein, Jerry Brown, Mark Friedman, Doug Elmets
(L-R) California Governor Jerry Brown, Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi, Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property and Doug Elmets (Image:courtesy photos)

Friedman, a man of despicable character, may be a stranger to readers, but he is no stranger to The Leslie Brodie Report given that he was one of the  named defendants in the case of Rumsey vs. Dickstein, which deals primarily with allegations of years of fraud and deceit by Dickstein against his client, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.

One example of such a scheme allegedly perpetrated by Dickstein and Friedman against the tribe deals with a parcel of land situated in West-Sacramento  known as “The Triangle,” an otherwise prime location facing the Sacramento River.

The tribe was urged by defendants Dickstein and its financial advisor Arlen Opper to enter into yet another business relationship with Friedman, through which a parcel of land in “The Triangle” was purchased.  The tribe would own 50% and Friedman and his extended would own 50% of the property.

At one point, Mark Friedman asked the tribe for a favor (or as he put it, an “accommodation”), by which the tribe would sell and Friedman would purchase the tribe’s 50% share in “The Triangle.”

Friedman’s excuse  for seeking the “accommodation” was very simple — he wanted to reduce the amount of money he would  owe the Internal Revenue Service.  Friedman had just sold a different piece of real estate, and  needed to quickly invest the money in real estate (or as he referred to it, to “park” the money ) in a separate property for a period of several years as is allowed by IRS rules; at the period, the tribe would be allowed to buy the property back for the same price for which it was sold to Friedman per a “buy back option.”

Dickstein and Opper recommended that the tribe “accommodate” Friedman, and Friedman consequently purchased the property from the tribe.

Per their written agreement, the tribe was given the option to buy back the property within one year.  However, the tribe did not buy back the property within one as  a result of a failure by Arlen Opper and Howard Dickstein — the attorney for the tribe who was in possession of the written agreement — to inform the tribe when the time period expired so that the tribe could buy back the property.  Notably, the property had increased in value “exponentially” during this period.

Later,  after the “buy back option” had expired, the tribe realized that it had missed the deadline to buy back its 50% share of the property, and sought to do so at that time.  However, Mark Friedman refused to sell it back, claiming that the tribe had missed its deadline.

Separately, and as was reported earlier, Howard Dickstein, a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry, has been named a defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant is Dickstein’s wife, Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English.

The lawsuit alleges that Dickstein and English executed a scheme that caused injury to the Plaintiff, a Southern California resident who claims his privacy and constitutional rights were “egregiously violated.”

Specifically, the suit alleges that in order to camouflage a scheme and make it appear as though it is purely a mundane action by a governmental agency and was not designed to conceal Dickstein’s and English’s own acts of malfeasance, greed, and betrayal, defendants resorted to abusing their considerable “political and legal clout.”

This clout was presumably obtained as a result of the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars from myriad Tribal Casinos to various state and local governmental agencies/officials, as well as from English’s position as a member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, and the fact that the president of the State Bar of California, Jon Streeter, and his firm of Keker & Van Nest, represent Howard Dickstein. This , the plaintiff alleges, shows “malice and oppression” on the part of defendants sufficient to justify an award of punitive damages.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

Dickstein and his legal team neglected to reference the allegations of defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade through fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion, breaches of fiduciary duties, and misrepresentations which the tribe had leveled against their own attorney.

In nearby Placer County, situated between the cities of Roseville and Lincoln, 50 miles east of Yolo County, where the United Auburn Indian Community operates the Thunder Valley Casino, allegations of greed and betrayal were also leveled against Howard Dickstein by the former chairwoman of the United Auburn Indian Community, the Honorable Jessica Tavares and long-time tribal council member Dolly Suehead.

According to media reports, Tribal Administrator Greg Baker — a Dickstein confederate — disallowed a tribe-funded mailing of a campaign mailer that claims the United Auburn Indian Community has been “bamboozled by an attorney [Howard Dickstein] more interested in filling his garage with Ferraris than serving the interest of our tribe, and the greed of a tribal council that rubber stamps his decision and no longer looks after our best interests.”

Baker, who as it turned out was involved in a separate and unrelated financial scheme, was recently suspended following on the heels of an IRS investigation into allegations of fraud and money-laundering. In affidavits filed by an IRS investigator, it was alleged that Baker was part of a scheme to over-bill the casino/tribe by more than $18 million, which would later be “kicked-back.”

Roman Porter — a long time ally and confederate of California Democratic Party operative Joseph Dunn of embattled online publication Voice of OC who now serves as the executive director of the State Bar of California — was recently hired as Thunder Valley Casino’s new tribal administrator.

Please observe that rather than contacting Lori Lowenthal Marcus, Esq. directly, the query is being delivered publicly, here and now.

Labor Party presidential candidate Colette Avital revealed in an interview with Channel 2 on Thursday that one of her bosses when she worked in the Foreign Ministry tried to attack her sexually.

“It happened many years ago and I defended myself,” Avital said. “We women are not defenseless if you know how to object and push people away.”

Avital considered (Shimon) Peres her mentor, but in the Channel 2 interview she denied rumors of an affair with Peres when she was Israel’s consul-general in New York. “There never was an affair, just like Peres never had an Arab mother,” Avital said, dismissing another well-known rumor about the vice premier.

Howard Dickstein, a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry, has been named a defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant is Dickstein’s wife, Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English.

Dickstein and his legal team neglected to reference the allegations of defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade through fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion, breaches of fiduciary duties, and misrepresentations which the tribe had leveled against their own attorney.

In nearby Placer County, situated between the cities of Roseville and Lincoln, 50 miles east of Yolo County, where the United Auburn Indian Community operates the Thunder Valley Casino, allegations of greed and betrayal were also leveled against Howard Dickstein by the former chairwoman of the United Auburn Indian Community, the Honorable Jessica Tavares and long-time tribal council member Dolly Suehead.

According to media reports, Tribal Administrator Greg Baker — a Dickstein confederate — disallowed a tribe-funded mailing of a campaign mailer that claims the United Auburn Indian Community has been “bamboozled by an attorney [Howard Dickstein] more interested in filling his garage with Ferraris than serving the interest of our tribe, and the greed of a tribal council that rubber stamps his decision and no longer looks after our best interests.”

Baker, who as it turned out was involved in a separate and unrelated financial scheme, was recently suspended following on the heels of an IRS investigation into allegations of fraud and money-laundering. In affidavits filed by an IRS investigator, it was alleged that Baker was part of a scheme to over-bill the casino/tribe by more than $18 million, which would later be “kicked-back.”

Roman Porter — a long time ally and confederate of California Democratic Party operative Joseph Dunn of embattled online publication Voice of OC who now serves as the executive director of the State Bar of California — was recently hired as Thunder Valley Casino’s new tribal administrator.

The abuse and financial atrocities by attorney Howard Dickstein (on behalf of himself, as well as others) against his clients — Native Americans who are members of various Indian tribes operating casinos in the State of California — is well documented.

Hard hit were the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation which operates the Cache Creek Casino in Yolo County, the Pala Band of Mission Indians which operates the Pala Casino Resort & Spa in San Diego County, and the United Auburn Indian Community which operates the Thunder Valley Casino in Placer County.

One such incident resulted in the emotionally distressing injustice inflicted on the bona fide founder of Thunder Valley Casino, the ex-chair of the tribe, Jessica Tavares.

Jessica is a proud visionary who was the force behind the economic and cultural revival of the tribe — as well as the revival of surrounding communities.  Sadly, Jessica was ultimately betrayed by a fellow member of the tribe and placed on the proverbial iceberg because she chose honor, integrity, and dignity for herself and for the tribe over the greed and divisiveness promoted by Howard Dickstein in his quest to obtained millions for himself and by extension for his wife,  Jeannine English.

Since 2006, Jeannine English has served as a “public member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, an otherwise governmental entity primarily responsible to disciplining errant lawyers.  Despite allegations that Dickstein has committed countless acts of grave misconduct and ethical breaches, Dickstein has never been disciplined by the State Bar of California.  English’s appointment as a public member was courtesy of her California Democratic Party confederates who control California’s legislative branch.

Unfortunately, the two U.S. Senators from California refuse to become involved in these issues despite the fact that  tribal matters fall primarily within federal oversight. Dickstein, in his role as counsel for the tribes, has overseen the tribes’ contributions of millions of dollars to the coffers of the Democratic Party.

Fortunately, Republican Arizona Senator John McCain recently stepped in and called for an investigation of Howard Dickstein.  Similarly, a few months prior to Senator McCain’s announcement, a Yolo County-based rabbi asked the State Bar of California Board of Governors to investigate English and Dickstein.

The J Street Gang of Greed

In approximately 2004, as part of an effort to revitalize its downtown area, the city of Sacramento poured three million dollars into subsidies for the renovation of the “Elliott Building” located at 1530 J Street in Sacramento.  The project was initiated by Mark Friedman of Sacramento-based Fulcrum Property Group and a few of his business partners.

Friedman, a man of despicable character, may be a stranger to readers, but he is no stranger to The Leslie Brodie Report given that he was one of the  named defendants in the case of Rumsey vs. Dickstein, which deals primarily with allegations of years of fraud and deceit by Dickstein against his client, the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.

One example of such a scheme allegedly perpetrated by Dickstein and Friedman against the tribe deals with a parcel of land situated in West-Sacramento  known as “The Triangle,” an otherwise prime location facing the Sacramento River.

The tribe was urged by defendants Dickstein and its financial advisor Arlen Opper to enter into yet another business relationship with Friedman, through which a parcel of land in “The Triangle” was purchased.  The tribe would own 50% and Friedman and his extended would own 50% of the property.

At one point, Mark Friedman asked the tribe for a favor (or as he put it, an “accommodation”), by which the tribe would sell and Friedman would purchase the tribe’s 50% share in “The Triangle.”

Friedman’s excuse  for seeking the “accommodation” was very simple — he wanted to reduce the amount of money he would  owe the Internal Revenue Service.  Friedman had just sold a different piece of real estate, and  needed to quickly invest the money in real estate (or as he referred to it, to “park” the money ) in a separate property for a period of several years as is allowed by IRS rules; at the period, the tribe would be allowed to buy the property back for the same price for which it was sold to Friedman per a “buy back option.”

Dickstein and Opper recommended that the tribe “accommodate” Friedman, and Friedman consequently purchased the property from the tribe.

Per their written agreement, the tribe was given the option to buy back the property within one year.  However, the tribe did not buy back the property within one as  a result of a failure by Arlen Opper and Howard Dickstein — the attorney for the tribe who was in possession of the written agreement — to inform the tribe when the time period expired so that the tribe could buy back the property.  Notably, the property had increased in value “exponentially” during this period.

Later,  after the “buy back option” had expired, the tribe realized that it had missed the deadline to buy back its 50% share of the property, and sought to do so at that time.  However, Mark Friedman refused to sell it back, claiming that the tribe had missed its deadline.

Separately, and was reported  here earlier, Howard Dickstein of J Street PAC, who is  widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry, has been named a defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant is Dickstein’s wife, Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English.

The lawsuit alleges that Dickstein and English executed a scheme that caused injury to the Plaintiff, a Southern California resident who claims his privacy and constitutional rights were “egregiously violated.”

Specifically, the suit alleges that in order to camouflage a scheme and make it appear as though it is purely a mundane action by a governmental agency and was not designed to conceal Dickstein’s and English’s own acts of malfeasance, greed, and betrayal, defendants resorted to abusing their considerable “political and legal clout.”

This clout was presumably obtained as a result of the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars from myriad Tribal Casinos to various state and local governmental agencies/officials, as well as from English’s position as a member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, and the fact that the president of the State Bar of California, Jon Streeter, and his firm of Keker & Van Nest, represent Howard Dickstein. This , the plaintiff alleges, shows “malice and oppression” on the part of defendants sufficient to justify an award of punitive damages.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

According to media reports, Tribal Administrator Greg Baker — a Dickstein confederate — disallowed a tribe-funded mailing of a campaign mailer that claims the United Auburn Indian Community has been “bamboozled by an attorney [Howard Dickstein] more interested in filling his garage with Ferraris than serving the interest of our tribe, and the greed of a tribal council that rubber stamps his decision and no longer looks after our best interests.”

Orly Taitz Assails Dianne Feinstein / J. Street PAC — Entity Associated with Jeremy Ben-Ami and Controversial Gambling Attorney Howard Dickstein of Sacramento, California

Prominent California attorney, Rancho Santa Margarita-based Dr. Orly Taitz has declared in no uncertain terms her opposition to left-wing Israel advocacy group J Street.  The announcement came on the heels of Dianne Feinstein’s acceptance of an  endorsement from the highly controversial J Street — an entity headed by Jeremy Ben-Ami. 

In reply to Feinstein’s endorsement, embattled gambling attorney Howard Dickstein of Sacramento-based Dickstein & Zerbi J stated to the media: “Her (Feinstein) views were very close, if not identical, to J Street’s,” said Howard , a board member of J Street’s political action committee .

Taitz, who is running against Feinstein adamantly opposes the J-Street/Feinstein position, stated:

“J-street is a far Left organization which advocates cutting up Jerusalem and giving a big part of Jerusalem to Palestinians, dismantling all of the Jewish settlements and towns in Judea and Samaria. They are more radical than many Palestinians. The fact that Feinstein accepted their endorsement speaks volumes. Feinstein is the chair of the Senate Intelligence committee. Endorsing such radical views will not promote peace and doesn’t mesh with her position as chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.”

Howard Dickstein of J Street Gang of Greed — also member of J Street’s PAC– a left-wing Israel advocacy group which endorsed Dianne Feinstein (Note: 1- Google connection as is KVN 2- As alluded earlier,Dickstein-Feinstein Connection 3-Cotchett ?)

 This year, 23 neophytes have paid $3,480 each for the opportunity to challenge incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the doyenne of Congress’ Jewish contingent, who has held the seat since 1992. Under new rules, the top two vote-getters in today’s primary will proceed to the general election in November—regardless of party registration. With the opposition candidates all polling below 5 percent, that opens up a window of opportunity for long-shot gadflies to make it to the general election ballot.

The list includes Orly Taitz, the Soviet Jewish émigré who styles herself the queen of the birther movement, and Nachum Shifren, formerly known as Norm, a native Malibu surf rat and Hasidic rabbi who, according to London’s Jewish Chronicle, once worked as a driver for the extremist leader Meir Kahane and more recently traveled to Britain to rally with the English Defence League, a nationalist, anti-Islam group. “Many of the other candidates,” said Jack Pitney, a political-science professor at Claremont McKenna College, “are an organic mix of nuts and vegetables.”

The likelihood that Feinstein will actually be unseated is accordingly negligible. She is one of the most popular politicians in the state, and despite being the victim of a $4.5 million campaign-funds embezzlement scam, she holds a cash advantage of $2.5 million over the official candidate of the state Republican Party, an autism activist named Elizabeth Emken. All of which explains why the announcement late last week that Feinstein had accepted the endorsement of the left-wing Israel advocacy group J Street was met not with the vitriol many pro-Israel groups heaped on Democrat Joe Sestak, J Street’s candidate in Pennsylvania’s 2010 Senate race, but with silence.

 

J Street, which launched in 2008 with ambitions to act as a progressive counterweight to the behemoth American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has struggled to find entree with Congress’ senior players. Feinstein lends them much-needed gravitas. “J Street is establishing itself as an element of the mainstream Jewish community,” said J Street’s head, Jeremy Ben-Ami.

J Street made its approach in April, after Feinstein wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle defending Obama’s diplomatic approach toward Iran. “Her views were very close, if not identical, to J Street’s,” said Howard Dickstein, a board member of J Street’s political action committee and Sacramento lawyer who made his fortune representing Indian tribal gambling interests. “I don’t think she has to be fearful of any kind of retaliation or pushback.” Dickstein was joined in making the ask by J Street advisory board member Carol Winograd, a retired Stanford University professor of medicine and biology whose husband, Terry, served as a Ph.D. adviser to Google co-founder Larry Page. (Together, the Winograds have given more than $600,000 to Democratic causes in the past three cycles.)

Washington, DC-based investigative journalist Susan Bradford’s article about Howard Dickstein / Thunder Valley Casino contains false and inaccurate Information

Susan Bradford is a Washington, DC-based investigative journalist, author, and columnist. During her four-year investigation of the Abramoff scandal, Bradford interviewed over 400 sources who participated or were otherwise privy to the key events at hand, including lobbyists, attorneys, tribal leaders and dissidents, agency and elected officials, reporters, Committee members, activists, corporate executives, among many others.

She also acquired substantial corroborating paperwork from Indian tribes and other former clients and associates of superlobbyist Jack Abramoff. At the invitation of tribal members, Bradford lived on Indian reservations and attended tribal gatherings. In 2007, Bradford became the first journalist to uncover that the Abramoff scandal had been manufactured by tribal dissidents and their lobbyist allies, including Scott Reed. She has been breaking new ground on the Abramoff investigation ever since.

Unfortunately, in a recent article about a complaint filed by John McCain with the National Indian Gaming Commission against controversial gambling attorney Howard Dickstein, Susan Bradford falsely reported (false information underlined) :

“Reminiscent of a pattern established during the Abramoff investigation, McCain’s letter to the NIGC followed a scuffle within the Tribal Council in which disgruntled dissidents running for office were accused of leaking false information to the public in order to challenge their rivals and lay the foundation for a corruption probe.

The Auburn dissidents distributed a mailer alleging that the tribe was “bamboozled by an attorney more interested in filing his garage with Ferraris than serving the interest of our tribe, and the greed of a Tribal Council that rubber stamps his decision and no longer looks after our best interests.”

The Tribal Council reportedly countered that the mailer incorporated false information which “makes it appear the tribe is legitimizing this type of gutter politics and giving the allegations credibility.”

The mailer accused the Tribal Council of closing the tribe’s privately funded middle and high school classrooms while paying a lawyer $25 million.

Despite having made these claims, the Auburn dissidents reportedly served on Tribal Council when Dickstein’s percentage fee was established and revoked. If the fees were improper, why didn’t they blow the whistle then?

Dickstein has since been fired, and the California Tribal Business Alliance, whose leadership consists of representatives from the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians of California, the Pala Band of Luiseno Indians, and the Lytton Rancheria of California Indians (represented by Rodgers), also reportedly severed ties with him.”

Speaking of Dickstein — a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry — he was recently named as defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant is Dickstein’s wife, Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English.

The lawsuit alleges that Dickstein and English executed a scheme that caused injury to the Plaintiff, a Southern California resident who claims his privacy and constitutional rights were “egregiously violated.”

Specifically, the suit alleges that in order to camouflage a scheme and make it appear as though it is purely a mundane action by a governmental agency and was not designed to conceal Dickstein’s and English’s own acts of malfeasance, greed, and betrayal, defendants resorted to abusing their considerable “political and legal clout.”

This clout was presumably obtained as a result of the funneling of hundreds of millions of dollars from myriad Tribal Casinos to various state and local governmental agencies/officials, as well as from English’s position as a member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, and the fact that the president of the State Bar of California, Jon Streeter, and his firm of Keker & Van Nest, represent Howard Dickstein. This , the plaintiff alleges, shows “malice and oppression” on the part of defendants sufficient to justify an award of punitive damages.

Dickstein , who is no stranger to litigation, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

In that action, the plaintiffs — who were represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and legal ethics expert Michael Boli — alleged that Dickstein engaged in myriad fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion (i.e. a non-criminal term referring to the act of theft), breaches of fiduciary duties, misrepresentations, and unjustly enriching himself with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

While the suit was pending, further allegations of grave misconduct were leveled against Dickstein and his attorneys of San Francisco-based Keker & Van Nest including claims that evidence was “manufactured.” Later, Dickstein and his lawyers of Keker & Van Nest (presumably, John Keker, Elliot Peters, and Jon Streeter) falsely advertised and misled the public into believing that the Yocha Dehe tribe had only sued Dickstein for conduct which was “negligent” in nature. Dickstein and his legal team neglected to reference the allegations of defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade through fraudulent conduct, concealment, conversion, breaches of fiduciary duties, and misrepresentations which the tribe had leveled against their own attorney.

In nearby Placer County, situated between the cities of Roseville and Lincoln, 50 miles east of Yolo County, where the United Auburn Indian Community operates the Thunder Valley Casino, allegations of greed and betrayal were also leveled against Howard Dickstein by the former chairwoman of the United Auburn Indian Community, the Honorable Jessica Tavares and long-time tribal council member Dolly Suehead.

According to media reports, Tribal Administrator Greg Baker — a Dickstein confederate — disallowed a tribe-funded mailing of a campaign mailer that claims the United Auburn Indian Community has been “bamboozled by an attorney [Howard Dickstein] more interested in filling his garage with Ferraris than serving the interest of our tribe, and the greed of a tribal council that rubber stamps his decision and no longer looks after our best interests.”

Baker, who as it turned out was involved in a separate and unrelated financial scheme, was recently suspended following on the heels of an IRS investigation into allegations of fraud and money-laundering. In affidavits filed by an IRS investigator, it was alleged that Baker was part of a scheme to over-bill the casino/tribe by more than $18 million, which would later be “kicked-back.”

Bonnie King Avers Controversial Gambling Attorney Howard Dickstein and Mouthpiece Doug Elmets Engage in “Heinous Action” and “Tribal Terrorism” Against Native Americans

In a desperate plea for help, activist Bonnie King is asking members of Congress to bring an end to “tribal terrorism” Howard Dickstein and Doug Elmets inflict on members of various Indian tribes located in California.

According to King, unscrupulous tribal leaders engage in a scheme to “kick out enrolled members without just cause to increase their own wealth and power.” 

King further alleges that the scheme is supported by Howard Dickstein and political consultant Doug Elmets who “are encouraging tribal committees to execute this heinous action. While they drive their nice sports cars, live in huge mansions, and fly in private jets the executive committees are sending disenrolled members into bankruptcy and a loss of sacred heritage. They use false excuses for reasoning, but the disenrollments have only taken place post Indian Gaming. Federal and state governments will not intervene, calling it intertribal issues, so the disenrolled members have no say or recourse”, King stated.

“Something desparately needs to be done about this corruption,” King concluded.

Members of Pala Band of Mission Indians Ask President Barack Obama for Help in Struggle Against Controversial Gambling Attorney Howard Dickstein

Members of San Diego-based Pala Band of Mission Indians are asking U.S. President Barack Obama for help in their struggle against controversial gambling attorney Howard Dickstein.  

In an article recently published by a former member of the tribe, an eerie comparison was made between “Blood Diamonds” to “Blood Indian Gaming Money.”  According to the article “Gov. Jerry Brown was given $200,000 in “Blood Indian Gaming Money.” 

Moreover, the author alleges that Howard Dickstein controls “the Tribal  Business Alliance, Robert Smith and Doug Elmets. Elmet’s office is in the same building where Gov. Brown has his penthouse pad. So the disenrolled blood $$ don’t have to drip that far to get them all dirty.”

Dickstein , who is no stranger to controversy, has been previously named a defendant in a suit advanced by his client, members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations (formerly known as the Ramsey Band of Wintun Indians), which owns and operates the Cache Creek Casino in Brooks, California, an unincorporated community in Yolo County.

Controversial Gambling Attorney Howard Dickstein — Ally of Yolo County Superior Court Judge Dave Rosenberg /Client of Keker & Van Nest — Named Defendant in Civil Suit As Scrutiny of Jon Streeter – PG & E Intensifies

Howard Dickstein, a widely-known but controversial figure within California’s Tribal Gambling industry, has been named a defendant in a suit seeking unspecified monetary damages. Also named as defendant is Dickstein’s wife, Sacramento-based lobbyist Jeannine English.

Breaking ….. Cache Creek Casino — Under the Tight Control of Howard Dickstein — Funnels Millions to Yolo County District Attorney (TLR Note: See Below)

During the investigation, tribal representatives refused to participate in the process or respond to the grand jury’s findings, citing their status as “a sovereign governmental entity that is immune to the jurisdiction and process of state and local authorities.”

Representatives from the Yocha Dehe tribe also refused to provide up-to-date membership figures when requested for this story, but the grand jury report estimated adult membership at fewer than 25 people.

While tribal casinos present challenges to rural counties, some believe their value as an economic engine can’t be denied.

Steve Smith, the human resources director for the Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians — the Sonoma tribe operating River Rock —said that the casino employs roughly 600 people, making it one of the top 20 employers in the county.

Cache Creek employs more than 2,300 people, said Mike Traum, the casino’s communications manager. The figure makes the casino the second largest employer in Yolo County, behind only the University of California, Davis.

Noting the effects that such large-scale gaming operations can have on rural areas, the tribes operating  Cache Creek and River Rock have entered into intergovernmental agreements with Yolo and Sonoma counties, respectively.
Both agreements resulted in multimillion-dollar windfalls of mitigation payments for the two counties.

In Yolo County, the Yocha Dehe tribe has shelled out more than $32 million in mitigation between 2002 and 2010, with healthy portions going toward the sheriff’s department and the district attorney’s office.

TLR Note:

Howard Dickstein — a Sacramento-based Indian gambling attorney is highly corrupted, greedy at the extreme, and has been compared by many to Jack Abramoff. 

Dickstein two main clients are Cache Creek Casino / Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation located in Yolo County, and Thunder Valley Casino/ United Auburn Indian Community located in Placer County.

Only recently, Arizona Senator John McCain has called for an investigation concerting Dickstein ‘s alleged unlawful business practices.  Similarly, Madame Jessica Tavares — former chair of  United Auburn Indian Community which owns Thunder Valley Casino — accused Dickstein of duping the tribe into paying his firm $26 million in fees over six years. 

Previously, the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians which owns Cache Creek Casino had sued Dickstein.  The lawsuit ( http://tinyurl.com/cs77wqm) alleged “Greed & Betrayal” vis-via causes of actions for:

(1) BREACH OF CONTRACT
(2) BREACH OF CONTRACT
(3) NEGLIGENCE
(4) BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY
(5) AIDING AND ABETTING AND PARTICIPATING IN BREACHES OF FIDUCIARY DUTY
(6) FRAUD/CONCEALMENT
(7) CONSTRUCTIVE FRAUD
(8) NEGLIGENT MISREPRESENTATION
(9) CONVERSION
(10) VIOLATION OF BUSINESS & PROFESSIONS CODE SECTION 17200
(11) UNJUST ENRICHMENT
(12) DECLARATORY RELIEF
(13) NEGLIGENCE
(14) CIVIL CONSPIRACY

While the above mentioned suit was being litigated,  not surprisingly, wholly separate allegations of grave misconduct were leveled against Howard Dickstein, as well as against the firm which represented him — Keker & Van Nest. 

Specifically, attorneys from the law offices of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy,  and ethics expert Michael Boli alleged that Howard Dickstein and/or Keker & Van Nest manufactured evidence, and engaged in myriad violations of professional ethics.  See @:    http://tinyurl.com/bom2va2

Shockingly, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy,  and ethics expert Michael Boli  did not allege that Howard Dickstein and/or Keker & Van Nest engaged in extortion/attempted extortion or otherwise violated ethics rules which prohibit — even indirectly —  the threat of criminal prosecution for the purpose of gaining an advantage over an adversary in a civil dispute,  in reply to false allegations advanced to the court by Howard Dickstein and/or Keker & Van Nest that the plaintiffs (the clients of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Cotchett Pitre & McCarthy and ethics expert Michael Boli ) had “clearly committed a felony.”

Subsequent to the conclusion of the litigation, and in order to conceal the fraudulent and egregious misconduct perpetrated by Dickstein against his client — the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians — Dickstein had conspired with Keker & Van Nest to mislead the public into believing that the plaintiffs had only alleged that he was “negligent.”   See @   http://tinyurl.com/cp989dq

Dickstein is married to one Jeannine English — a lobbyist from Sacramento who serves as “Public Member” of the State Bar of California Board of Governors/Trustees.  Jeannine English, not surprisingly, is as greedy and corrupt as Dickstein, and then some. 

She is a former member of the California’s  “Little Hoover Commission” (as is State Bar of California “Public Member” Gwen Moore of Shrimpscam. )  

Interestingly, while Jeannine English was part of the Little Hoover Commission, Howard Dickstein was appointed to purvey legal services to the commission.  Conversely, Dickstein  had arranged that his client — the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians — would hire his wife Jeannine English to act as “Lobbyist” for the tribe.

Jeannine English was positioned as BOG “Public Member” to primarily ensure that her husband Howard Dickstein will not be disciplined by the State Bar of California, despite the well documented trail of fraudulent and egregious misconduct he had perpetrated against several  of his clients.  This had the net benefit of unjustly enriching  both  herself and her husband at the expense of Dickstein ‘s client, the People of the State of California, and the fair administration of justice. 

Further seeking to escape justice and in order to apiece other law enforcement agencies, Dickstein also arranges for huge sums of money to be donated to Jerry Brown, California attorney general Kamala Harris,  and other California Democratic Operatives from the coffers of his clients.  See example @    http://tinyurl.com/cftq5ye

Incidentally, Gwen Moore of Shrimpscam (as is  “Public Member” Dennis Mangers – also a California Democratic Party operative)  primary goal as BOG public members is also  to ensure that certain law firms such Girardi & Keese, Engstrom Lispcmomb & Lack, Cotche Pitre & McCarthy, Kreindler & Kreindler, Morrison & Foerster, Skadden Arps, Kerr & Wagstaffe, Howard Dickstein of Dickstein & Zerbi, and many others known as “State Bar Royalty” are not disciplined by the State Bar.  For example, Gwen Moore, Jeannine English, Alec Chang, Jon Streeter , Starr Babcock, Robert Hawley, Joe Dunn, and others are part of an ongoing highly unlawful conspiracy to obstruct justice in the matter of In Re Girardi.

 In consideration of allowing to operate with impunity by the state Bar of California , those  law firms contribute handsomely to members of the California Democratic Party vis-vis political donations and /or class-actions Cy Pres award and/or diversity money — either directly or indirectly. 

Moore is also involved in various other adventures which mainly consist of  “leaning” on the CPUC/Utility companies for the purpose of extracting money under the guise of Diversity pursuant to General Order 156.  According to sources close to YR,  General Order 156 is nullity given the passage of Proposition 209.  Consequently, those sources maintain,  a declaratory judgement action will soon be filed in the Sacramento Superior Court seeking to declare General Order 156 null and void.

In furtherance of the above mentioned unlawful activities, and in order to compensate for the lack of discipline imposed on State Bar Royalty; sources familiar with the situation maintain a policy was put in place by Judy Johnson, Jeannine English, Thomas Girardi, Robert Hawley, Howard Dickstein, Alec Chang, Starr Babcock, Howard Miller, Holly Fujie and others — on their behalf and on behalf of others — to frame innocent lawyers and/or impose unusually harsh discipline even for minor violations. 

For example, on one hand, Walter Lack and Pierce O’Donnell — who despite a well documented trail of repeated acts of misconduct — have no or  very little displined imposed by the State Bar of California, respectively.   On the other hand , Phil Kay , Ron Gottschalk, Dan Dydzak , and many other were treated unjustly, and in accordance with said policy.

ORDER
PRO, Chief Judge.
Presently before this Court is Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (2:05-CV-01331, Doc. # 32), filed on June 22, 2006. Plaintiff filed an Opposition (2:05-CV-01331, Doc. # 38) on August 4, 2006. Defendants filed a Reply (2:05-CV-01331, Doc. # 41) on August 18, 2006.
I. BACKGROUND
This case is one of many in consolidated Multi District Litigation arising out of the energy crisis of 2000-2001. During that time, the national energy and natural gas markets became mutually dysfunctional, and, feeding off each other spiraled into a nationwide energy crisis. Amendments to Blanket Sales Certificate, 105 F.E.R.C. ¶ 61,217, at ¶ 12, 2003 WL 22758080 (2003). The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) undertook a fact finding investigation of the market crisis in which it concluded, “spot gas prices rose to extraordinary levels, facilitating the unprecedented price increase in the electricity market.” Id. FERC found the dysfunctions in the natural gas market stemmed from efforts to manipulate price indices compiled by private trade publications, including reporting of false data and wash trading.1Id.
Plaintiff originally filed this action in the District Court of Wyandotte County, Kansas. (Notice of Removal, [2:05—CV-01331, Doc. # 1] at 2.) Defendants removed the case to the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. (Id.) The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation entered a Transfer Order pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407 centralizing the foregoing action in this Court for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings.

I’ll Take Keker & Van Nest’s Elliott Peters in WHAT’S THE NAME OF THE GAME? (Part 3) for a True Daily Double, Alex


Mr. Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest who represented Howard Dickstein in a suit containing 14 causes of action such as Fraud, Constructive Fraud, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Conversion ,Civil Conspiracy, and Negligence. (Photo:courtesy amlawdaily)

Toward the end of 2007, Plaintiffs Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians (now known as the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation) — represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal and Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy — filed a suit in Yolo County Superior Court against Howard Dickstein and Jane Zerbi of Dickstein & Zerbi and Arlen Opper, a financial consultant, accusing them of unjustly enriching themselves with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade.

Howard Dickstein, the spouse of State Bar of California Board of Governors member Jeannine English. allegedly engaged in “a course of dealing that involved breaches of trust and violations of duties of the most basic, and, indeed, sacred kind.”

The complaint, Rumsey vs. Dickstein, alleged 14 causes of action, to wit:

(1) BREACH OF CONTRACT
(2) BREACH OF CONTRACT
(3) NEGLIGENCE
(4) BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY
(5) AIDING AND ABETTING AND PARTICIPATING IN BREACHES OF FIDUCIARY DUTY
(6) FRAUD/CONCEALMENT
(7) CONSTRUCTIVE FRAUD
(8) NEGLIGENT MISREPRESENTATION
(9) CONVERSION
(10) VIOLATION OF BUSINESS & PROFESSIONS CODE SECTION 17200
(11) UNJUST ENRICHMENT
(12) DECLARATORY RELIEF
(13) NEGLIGENCE
(14) CIVIL CONSPIRACY

In statements to the media, Howard Dickstein referred to the allegations as a “pack of lies,” while disparaging his client. Dickstein also stated that he plans to fight the suit and “fight hard.”

Appearing on behalf of defendant Dickstein was Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest.

Defendants claimed that only a U.S. District Court has jurisdiction over the matter, and removed the case to federal court.

Plaintiff remanded back to state court. Defendants filed for a change of venue and moved the action from Yolo to the Superior Court in the county of Sacramento.

On its website, http://www.kvn.com/Lawyers/Peters-Elliot , Keker & Van Nest and Elliot Peters describe the above mentioned suit:
KVN

Paraphrasing the answer as a question.

1) Do you believe Keker & Van Nest and Elliot Peters, who represented Howard Dickstein in a suit which alleged 14 causes of action which was transferred to Sacramento Superior Court, refer, truthfully, to the case of Rumsey vs. Dickstein by stating “The plaintiffs alleged our client, the plaintiff’s former attorneys, were negligent.”?

State Bar of California Board of Governors Asked to Probe Alleged Irregularities Sorrounding Public Member Jeannine English as TLR Visits the Principality of Monaco

Monaco — a sovereign city state on the Côte d’Azur (French Riviera). Located in Monaco is the city of Monte Carlo — widely known for its casino and the Monaco Grand Prix, a Formula One race held each year on the Circuit de Monaco. In a civil action filed against Attorney Howard Dickstein, spouse of State Bar of California BOG member Jeannine English, it was alleged Dickstein engaged in “a course of dealing that involved breaches of trust and violations of duties of the most basic, and, indeed, sacred kind.” Including, but not limited to, using the client’s plane for personal trips to the south of France, Big Sur and Grand Prix events in Monte Carlo and Montreal for which he owes the client $1.2 million. (Photo:courtesy of germanexotics.com)

With an unclear agenda, demoralized, and a looming election, the State Bar of California Board of Governors now faces the unpleasant prospect of probing one of its own.

The Leslie Brodie Report has learned the Board of Governors (“BOG”) has been asked to investigate alleged irregularities surrounding public member Jeannine English and her spouse — tribal gambling attorney Howard Dickstein.

 

Ms. Jeannine English, public member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors. Loyal to her name, Ms. English drives BMFQ Aston Martin. Howard Dickstein, discerning and discriminating, is a devotee of Ferraris. Ms. English was named a public member of the State Bar Board of Governors in 2006 by Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez.

In addition, the BOG was asked to inquire about a $900,000.00 cy pres award involving Girardi & Keese and the California wing of the AARP, where Ms. English serves as president. According to confidential sources, State Bar establishment was shocked by the scope and magnitude of the revelations.

The underlying events involve the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians (“Rumsey”) which consists of 40 adult members who reside in Brooks, California. Attorney Howard Dickstein, a pioneer in tribal gambling law and the spouse of Ms. English, helped dig the tribe out of poverty. From a fledgling bingo business to what is now a thriving establishment known as “Cache Creek Casino.”

In and about 2007, and in addition to the services offered by Mr. Dickstein, Ms. Jeanine English and her company — Jeanine English & Associates — were also conducting business with Rumsey, by which lobbying and consulting services were purveyed by Ms. English.

Toward the end of 2007, Rumsey — represented by Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal and Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy — filed a suit in Yolo County Superior Court against Howard Dickstein and Jane Zerbi of Dickstein & Zerbi and Arlen Opper, a financial consultant, accusing them of unjustly enriching themselves with tribal money by defrauding the tribe of millions of dollars over more than a decade

Peters also represents Lance Armstrong who demands an on-air apology from “60 Minutes.” (photo: courtesy amlawdaily.typepad.com)

In statements to the media, Howard Dickstein referred to the allegations as a “pack of lies,” while disparaging his client. Dickstein also stated that he plans to fight the suit and “fight hard.”  Appearing on behalf of defendant Dickstein was Elliot Peters of Keker & Van Nest.

In addition, and according to the sources, the BOG was also asked to inquire about a plan by which a cy pres amount of $900,000 will be funneled to the AARP of California from a class action in which the law offices of Girardi & Keese serves as counsel. (Attridge v. Visa Case No. CGC-04-436920).

Jeanine English serves as the President of the AARP’s California branch, and is also involved with the AARP on a national level. According to the sources, while the sums will not go directly to Ms. English, they will indirectly benefit her vis-a-vis the associated prestige resulting from successful fund raising efforts.

Hence, the sources maintain, the lack of disclosure regarding the proposed cy pres is alarming, especially considering events relating to the State Bar’s handling of grave misconduct by Girardi & Keese in the Dole matter, and subsequent events involving Howard Rice’s Jerome Falk and Douglas Winthrop.
