CARSON CITY, Nev. — Julie Ardito, hired this summer as a public relations specialist in the Sandoval administration, has left the Nevada governor’s office after just 15 weeks on the job.
In 2006 the LA Times ran a series of stories about Nevada judicial corruption. We are appealing to them and other major California newspapers to run an update to the legendary exposé about the stacked deck in Carson City’s courthouse. We need to warn people about the rampant wholesale corruption in the Nevada judicial system. We need to let everyone know to avoid Nevada – do not move here – do not buy a home here – do not do business here – do not spend money here – the government, the cops and the courts are very, very corrupt and they’re playing with a stacked deck.
These state judges often dispense a style of wide-open, frontier justice that veers out of control across ethical, if not legal, boundaries. The consequences reach beyond Nevada, affecting people in other states, especially California.
The LA Times ran a lengthy three-part series on the Las Vegas court system. The first story, “Justice crippled by conflicts,” includes these quotes:
This is a juice town, some Las Vegas attorneys openly concede. Financial contributions “get you juice with a judge — an ‘in,’ ” Ian Christopherson, a lawyer in Las Vegas for 18 years, said in an interview. “If you have juice, you get different treatment. This is not a quid pro quo town like, say, Chicago. This town is a juice town.”
The second story, is about “a judge and his friends.” It begins:
LAS VEGAS — Without help from a friend, James Mahan might never have become a Las Vegas state judge. Certainly he wouldn’t have gotten one of the top judicial jobs in town: a lifetime appointment to the federal bench.Then again, without Mahan, his friend George Swarts would never have gotten to run an Internet porn business, a hotel-casino hair salon or a Southern California software company. Indeed, the careers of Judge James C. Mahan, 62, and his friend George C. Swarts, also 62, whom he appointed again and again as a receiver to manage troubled businesses, might be the ultimate example of how juice replaces justice in Las Vegas courtrooms.
In this town, people speak reverently of having juice, or an “in,” and Mahan — bearded, likable but sometimes caustic — has made it a striking feature in his courtroom. First as a state judge and now as a federal judge, he has approved more than $4.8 million in judgments and fees during more than a dozen cases in which a recent search of court records found no statement that he disclosed his relationships with those who benefited from his decisions.
The final story, from June 10th, is focused on senior judges. Some quotes:
Unlike regular judges, senior judges are not answerable to the voters, but serve at the pleasure of the high court, and that can mean for life. Unlike regular judges, they can reject assignments until they are given a case they want to try. Unlike regular judges, they cannot be removed from a case by peremptory challenge. And until last year, they did not have to disclose their financial interests.With this exceptional flexibility, they could try lawsuits in which they had a personal stake without revealing it. And because they cannot be removed by peremptory challenge, which normally permits a one-time replacement of a judge at the beginning of any case simply for the asking, it is possible for litigants to be stuck with senior judges, their conflicts of interest and their decisions.
In Las Vegas, They’re Playing With a Stacked Judicial Deck
JUICE VS. JUSTICE | A Times Investigation
Some judges routinely rule in cases involving friends, former clients and business associates — and in favor of lawyers who fill their campaign coffers.
LAS VEGAS — When Judge Gene T. Porter last ran for reelection, a group of Las Vegas lawyers sponsored a fundraiser for him at Big Bear in California. Even by Las Vegas standards, it was brazen. Some of the sponsors had cases before him. One case was set for a crucial hearing in four days. Continue reading
Anyone following the (former NDOT Director) Susan Martinovich hit-and-run coverup scandal – SEE KRNV mynews4.com Fact Finder story – will see that Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo is just a puppet. DA Rombardo’s strings are being pulled by Governor Brian Sandoval and his new “chief of staff” Gerald Gardner. We can safely assume Neil Rombardo is also NAG Catherine Cortez Masto’s bitch too since they were both Nevada Attorney General’s or as we call them (“NAGs”).
Susan Martinovich HIT-AND-RUN – Nevada Laws:
Gerald Gardner was DA Rombardo’s assistant until August 17, 2012 when Governor Brian Sandoval named Mr. Gardner as his new “chief of staff” .
“I have known Gerald since he served as my Las Vegas regional chief when I was attorney general,” Sandoval said. “His experience in Southern Nevada combined with his keen intellect and insight will be invaluable as we move into the 2013 Nevada Legislative session. I am pleased that Gerald has agreed to join my administration and serve in this capacity. I look forward to working together again.”
Here’s “Chief” Gardner’s bio – We see he covered up public corruption and fraud cases: “In 2002, Gardner was named the chief of the criminal justice division for the Nevada Attorney General’s Office, focusing on public corruption and fraud cases. In 2004, he was appointed by then-Attorney General Brian Sandoval to serve as his Las Vegas regional chief. He also served on the Attorney General’s Legislative Committee.”
Its convenient timing was exactly when DA Rombardo trumped up the “assault” charge for the process server who tried to serve an evading Susan Martinovich. The week and a half delay from the incident and the trumped up charge is very suspect.
Gov. Brian Sandoval announced Gerald Gardner has been named chief of staff effective September 5. Gardner takes over for Heidi Gansert who has served as the governor’s chief of staff for the past twenty months and who announced her resignation yesterday.

We did some research and found an interesting website called Wild Wild Law and that blog had the following information:
Nevada is one of only 10 states + DC without an intermediate appellate court. Like many other states, the state’s constitutional article related to the judiciary locks the state into a supreme court, district courts, justice of the peace courts, and (if the legislature approves, which it has), municipal courts. In 1980 and 1992 voters rejected efforts to amend the constitution to allow, but not require, the legislature to create an intermediate appellate. A third attempt in 2010 (Question 2) was rejected 47/53%.
Nevada’s jurists are well compensated in comparison to their counterparts in other states, according to a 2011 report by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC). Judges for the state Supreme Court are paid $170,000 annually, which puts Nevada well above the average and 10th on the list of best-paying states. The median salary for state Supreme Court justices across the United States is $146,917.
According to transparentnevada.com Carson City judges are paid (2011) as follows:
John Tatro: $125,707.40 *
Tom Armstrong: $66,393.76 (partial pay from 2011) *
James Todd Russell: $172,080.96 *
James Wilson: $159,561.74 *
Carson City DA Neil Rombardo made $162,641.05 in 2011 *
Carson City Department of “Alternative Sentencing” Chief Rory Planetamade $147,909.99 in 2011.
Other “Alternative Sentencing” public servants are paid very, very well and others not:
Catherine “Maddog” Summers was paid $113,597.47 in 2011.
Martin Hale was only paid $33,073.80 in 2011.
* This does not include bribes, kickbacks and other RICO Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act – “payments” that remain unreported.
A Carson City Justice/Municipal Court “Judge” (Justice of the Peace “JP”) only requires an education level of a High School Diploma – No higher education is required like say a degree in law!
From Carsonnow.org: The qualifications to be a candidate are established by Nevada State Law, (NRS 4.010) which states that a Justice of the Peace for Carson City must:
— Be a qualified elector
— Not have been removed from judicial office by the Legislature or removed or retired from judicial office by the Commission on Judicial Discipline
— Have a high school diploma or its equivalent as determined by the State Board of Education
— Reside in Carson City
The base pay range for the Justice of the Peace/Municipal Judge is $75,000 to $105,257.36 per year. The actual starting salary will be determined by the Carson City Board of Supervisors and will be based on the successful applicant’s education and experience.
California pays its high court judges the most of any state, with annual salaries of $218,237. But the pay scale varies widely for jurists in Nevada’s other neighboring states. Arizona pays its Supreme Court judges $155,000, while Utah pays them $145,350. The annual salary for high court judges in Oregon is $125,688, while Idaho pays just $119, 506.In general jurisdiction trial courts, Nevada judges are paid $160,000. The state is ranked 8th on the generosity list in this category. he median salary for general trial courts across the United States is $132,500.
The Survey of Judicial Salaries is published by the NCSC with information provided by state court administrative offices across the United States. The NCSC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the modernization of court operations and the improvement of justice at the state and local levels throughout the country. It functions as an extension of the state court systems.
The Nevada Intermediate Court of Appeals Amendment may appear on the 2014 ballot in the state of Nevada as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would establish an intermediate court of appeals in the state. State Senator Michael Roberson claimed that the state’s courts are overloaded with cases, which is why the measure is being proposed. If approved, the court would use existing facilities to operate. According to reports, the measure’s $1.3 million cost would be used for salaries and other staff requirements.
A similar measure was found on the November 2, 2010 statewide general election ballot, where it was rejected by voters.
Nevada must get its judicial act together before Taxpayers allow millions more tax dollars to fuel the troubled Nevada judicial industrial complex.
Citizens and Taxpayers must demand competent judges that follow the laws and the constitutions of the United States and Nevada.
In January 2012 the Las Vegas Review Journal did a series of stories called “Judging the Judges”: Nevada high court justices again ask for appeals court

Here are some of the reader comments:
We propose these standards as presented for the worst State, Georgia: http://www.lawlessamerica.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=716:candidate-for-judge-introduces-state-legislation-designed-to-reform-the-legal-and-judicial-process-changes-desperately-needed-part-1&catid=104:initiatives&Itemid=105
The business-as-usual methodology in Nevada’s courts must change. Nevada received a D- grade for CORRUPTION from the Center for public integrity in 2012. The “Judicial Accountability” section got a D+ grade and this is unacceptable and must not be rewarded by expanding an already corrupt system.

Carson City JUDGE JOHN TATRO, Part 1 and 2
See more of Guy Felton’s Nevada Corruption videos on his youtube channel:
Government in Nevada is too sick to heal itself. Tyranny is alive and well in Nevada.
Our state’s story is a prime demonstration of why we Americans must never give up our guns. Low-life, despicable scum have turned government into an enemy of the American Vision.
A recent report card issued by the State Integrity Investigation showed Nevada to have one of the worst-run governments among all 50 states.
Governor Sandoval and Attorney General Masto are ignoring the SII report card; they hope it will somehow evaporate and never become a concern in the public consciousness.
Sandoval and Masto are lackeys of organized crime.
The state’s controlling criminal elite LIKE Nevada government just the way it is; its loosey-goosey mechanics permit them to fleece we, the People of Nevada, for millions of dollars each year.
Nevada’s good ol’ boy network of corrupt judges is a MAJOR part of the problem.
Carson City Judge John Tatro is one example of Nevada’s black robes that cry to have white stripes painted on them.
Nevada’s good ol’ boy judges fraudulently pretend to be in the justice business; in truth they’re in the business of shafting and fleecing we, the People of Nevada.
Nevada government’s culture of corruption could not possibly exist if the state’s judicial community was committed to integrity and America’s noble ideals.

ATTENTION Carson City, Douglas, Reno, Henderson, Nevada Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) did not have legal jurisdiction over Pre-Trial Defendants prior to July 2013 If you were under DAS supervision, you may have legal recourse to sue in federal court under Title 42, Section 1983 and have any related criminal charges, pleas and convictions vacated.
Evidence points to Carson City Sheriff and its jail are putting methadone in the water/food to poison certain “persons of interest” like Robben who has protested and exposed corruption with the Carson City Sheriff, the Carson City courts, Caron City’s Department of “Alternative Sentencing”, the Nevada AG Catherine Cortez Masto, the Governor and his executive staff . …And for serving a subpoena to the former NDOT Director Sue Martinovich.
At least 2 people are dead because of methadone in the Carson City jail…
Inmates complain of strange tasting water and food and body odor consistent with methadone
In 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a caution about methadone, titled “Methadone Use for Pain Control May Result in Death.” The FDA also revised the drug’s package insert. The change deleted previous information about the usual adult dosage. The Charleston Gazette reported, “The old language about the ‘usual adult dose’ was potentially deadly, according to pain specialists.”
There was a concern they were putting sodium fluoride (rat poison) in the food/water, but research is pointing to methadone.
The lethal dose for a 70 kg (154 lb) human is estimated at 5–10 g. Sodium fluoride is classed as toxic by both inhalation (of dusts or aerosols) and ingestion. In high enough doses, it has been shown to affect the heart and circulatory system.
FACTS ABOUT FLUORIDE
– Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.
– Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).
– USAF Major George R. Jordan testified before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s that in his post as U.S.-Soviet liaison officer, the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.”
– The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany’s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride’s supposed effect on children’s teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: “The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben” by Joseph Borkin.)
More on this soon. We’re demanding an investigation into this poising of innocent Carson City jail inmates.
We know of juveniles being incarcerated with adult inmates and then being raped. Then of course there are many mysterious suicides and murders in this so called jail or “detention center” the gets federal funding.
We demand an ACLU and federal investigation into these matters.

Carson City Justice court judge John Tatro has acted outside the law, under color of law and thinks he is above the law.
We know Carson City Judge John Tatro has a history of “episodes” in the courtroom. These frothing “episodes” are captured on JAVS audio/video and prove this man is unfit for duty as a judge.
We keep finding new information about Judge John Tatro that validate his bias against Robben. We find John Tatro’s brother Tom Tatro worked for the NDOT Nevada Dept. of Transportation.
John Tatro and Susan Martinovich both went to Caron City High School, and Tatro denies this. Sheriff Kenny Furlong went there too. Can you say good ‘ol boy and girl network?
The unconstitutional and unconscionable $500,000.00 dollar bail against Robben far exceeds the $100.00 dollar bail schedule in Nevada. judge Tatro issues orders with no hearings and no due process to further the cover-up and retaliation against Robben. See Amendment 8 of the US Constitution.
The protesting has resumed and will continue to expose judge John Tatro and Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo and their blatant unconstitutional and unconscionable violations of the laws to cover-up the Susan Martinovich hit-and-run against Robben.
The Carson City Sheriff still has not provided the reports to the Liberty Mutual insurance company under claim number LA000-024039140-01.

FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS: Locations and Executive Orders
There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft’s list.
This is a fascinating video showing the technology used to spy on us. Do you feel safer?
From Science Fiction to Reality: the Government is employing both Pre-Crime technology and new, frightening surveillance technologies. These are just a portion of such technologies: Pre-Crime spotlights to bathe people in red light, F.A.S.T., Streetlights to monitor your every move and record your conversations, License Plate Scanners, Bugs and Tracking/Listening Devices being put into everyday appliances, Miniature Drones, Cockroaches and other insects with Listening Devices, X-ray vans to see inside your house or vehicle, and new lasers that can detect every molecule inside or on your body, and even Taser Bracelets for airplanes. Unfortunately, all of these devices actually exist. Some of these devices have not yet been employed, but make no mistake, they are coming.

We have heard about these chemtrails over and over again for the lase few years and decided to investigate. All you need to do is look up in the sky in the daytime and at night. At night, the planes leave normal contrails or ice crystals that dissipate very quickly. During the daytime, the contrails stay in the sky for much longer and leave long lines of white clouds. The planes criss-cross across the sky.
Now folks may think we’re crazy to suggest these long white clouds are not normal jet contrails – That is until you see this and read more about Environmental Geo Engineering.

Former presidential contender and billionaire Ross Perot is worried that America is a sitting duck for an unnamed foreign invader. In an interview for his new autobiography, Perot said the nation’s weak economy has left us open for a hostile takeover—and neither presidential candidate is the man to save the country.
As was the case a generation ago, budget experts agree that neither major party candidate for president has a credible plan to balance the budget. President Obama wants more government spending to help create jobs. The centerpiece of Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s plan is $5 trillion in tax cuts.
Citing an impending fiscal cliff, Perot warned of disaster. “If we are that weak, just think of who wants to come here first and take us over,” the former CEO of info-tech company Perot Systems told USA Today on Monday.
