I have nothing but respect for the judges. Nothing. That’s the problem.

No longer permitted to practice law, I wait to one side.

My crimes:

  • demands to a miscreant judge to step aside;
  • confidential complaints to supervising judges;
  • an aborted inquiry into the miscreant’s ties to lawyers with court business - blocked by the miscreant - who bankrupted my solo practice with $15,000 in fines, for complaining about him, confidentially, to the Fifth Federal Court Judicial Council.

My many convictions:

  • interference with the administration of “justice” by the miscreant;
  • burdening lawyer-witnesses, whom guardians of judicial privilege themselves to decline to examine.

Questions which stop the ears of the guardians of both legal and judicial ethics:

  1. How many judges receive money gifts from parties with court business?
  2. How many do favors in return?
  3. How many such judges are too many? One hundred? Ten? One?

An information asymmetry:

  • the robed miscreant accepts the gift(s) and does the judicial favor(s).
  • the imprudent, but honest court officer denounces the miscreant.
  • One is distinguished; one is tossed aside.

When the conduct of a robed miscreant is placed in issue, plenary investigative tools (under the control of STATE judges) become as flaccid and useless as a third nipple.


  • your judges punish lawyers for not gifting them:
  • your Counsels of Discipline blend the power of lions with the prestige of dung beetles.

What are YOU STATES  afraid of? Judicial spite? What do they know that we cannot know? That gifts and favors to/from a robed miscreant are routine?
No Gifts Accepted - All Gifts Returned. 

This was the Cardozo Rule.

The road from Benjamin Cardozo to this moment has been a long, downward strut and shuffle.

I have nothing but respect for the judges. Nothing. That’s the problem.
