Greetings Mr. Sweet:

I strongly oppose both Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger for Eighth Judicial District Court Judge based on the following:
1.  Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger filed false criminal charges against me Todd “Ty” Robben and all charges were dismissed by Douglas DA Mark Jackson who acted as a “special prosecutor” since  Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger were disqualified in the process. I am now suing  Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger in federal court. See the details here: Robben vs Carson City et al
See news stories here:
3. Here’s what Neil Rombardo’s forer DA’s think of him
Anonymous said…

 

Looks like a mass exudus from the carson city DA’s office. Employees are sick of Rombardo’s temper tantrums. Plus, the dude is getting divorced because he screwed one of his deputies.

See more: http://wildwildlaw.blogspot.com/2010/01/friday-open-thread.html

4. The Public Defender in Carson City had problems with Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger and campaigned for the new Carson City DA Jason Woodbury. Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger attempted to get rid of the Carson City Public Defender’s office (A State agency). Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger did not work well with the Public Defender and other defense lawyers which resulted in more court dates, motions and higher costs and time efficiency.

5. The voters of Carson City did not elect Mark Krueger as DA in 2014. Mark Krueger has lost every election he ran for in Carson City. I hear that the former assistant DA, Mark Krueger, actually sued his own board of County Commissioners during his time as Assistant DA in Lyon County because they refused to give employees in the DAs office a pay raise, although wages had been frozen for every County employee, regardless of department. Krueger has also run for Justice of the Peace and District Court Judge in Carson City and lost. I am not sure of his motive to become DA, other than to be in a position of power. I just think that some of these issues need to be brought to light so that voters can make a well informed decision come election time.

A key issue in the battle to become Carson City’s next district attorney is a high staff turnover rate in the office.

“Over the past few years, I’ve just been kind of watching what’s happening in the DA’s office and it struck me Carson City could be better served,” Jason Woodbury said in an interview this week.

He said since 2007 the 21-person office has had 39 people leave.

“Some turnover is inevitable but this alarming rate means something is wrong,” Woodbury said. “The truth is Carson City has lost a lot of good people because the District Attorney’s office has not been a healthy place to work in recent years.”

He pointed to what he termed “bickering” between the DA’s staff and the state Public Defender’s office saying that would come to an end if he’s elected.

Assistant DA Mark Krueger, who is seeking the post being vacated by Neil Rombardo, said Woodbury is completely misreading the reason for the turnover in the DA’s office.

He said 10 of the 39 people left when the office closed down the child support unit. He said two lawyers went on to become judges including Justice of the Peace Tom Armstrong and one — Gerald Gardner — to become chief of staff to Gov. Brian Sandoval.

Several others went to Washoe and Douglas counties or the Attorney General’s office for higher pay and broader opportunities. A half dozen more moved out of the area, he said.

“Most of them left for better and different opportunities,” Krueger said, adding nearly all of that happened before he was hired two years ago.

Krueger said Woodbury seems to be running against Rombardo, not him.

Asked about that, Woodbury said Krueger has been assistant DA for a couple of years now, “long enough to give you an idea what an office under his leadership would look like.”

“Neil’s the DA but I think Krueger owns as much of the issues at this point,” he said.

In good part, the friction between the State Public Defender’s Office and the DA’s office is the fact Rombardo recommended essentially firing the state PDs and having the county set up its own public defenders staff.

Woodbury said Rombardo shouldn’t be offering an opinion about that.

“I think it’s completely inappropriate for the DA to take a position on how defense services are provided to indigent people in Carson City,” he said. “He’ll get asked a legal question in a meeting and he’ll start giving policy advice.”

Rombardo said he brought the issue to the Board of Supervisors because his office, like the rest of Carson City’s departments, was being asked to cut the budget 10 percent, and “I looked at the Public Defender and they were asking for a budget increase.”

Rombardo said a consultant confirmed his belief Carson City was paying a disproportionate share of the state PD’s budget and could save hundreds of thousands of dollars by getting rid of the state PD. The state PD office is funded by the counties that use the service.

The Board of Supervisors rejected the idea but it didn’t make for good relations between Rombardo’s staff and the Public Defender’s staff. Those relations are bad enough members of the PD staff have volunteered in Woodbury’s campaign, even manning his booth at events.

Both men have about the same amount of legal experience although Woodbury’s is mostly in the private sector and Krueger’s as a public lawyer.

•••

Krueger has practiced law 15 years beginning as law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Bill Maupin, then as clerk for District Judges Mike Fondi and Bill Maddox. He was in the Attorney General’s office from 2001-2008 mostly handling civil litigation, then assistant DA in Lyon County for six years before coming to Carson as assistant two years ago.

He said he has extensive criminal experience — 40 jury trials including some of Carson City’s biggest in the past two years — a half dozen years of civil experience at the AG’s office and, through Lyon County, experience in handling the budget of a DA’s office.

“When I went into being the Assistant DA in Lyon County, I saw what you can do for the community to help protect it,” he said. “What it means to get justice. It means something to victims, means something to witnesses. At the end of the day when we get a resolution for them, they feel comforted.”

He said the DA has to be willing to prosecute cases and not let them slide through the cracks. He said David Stone, convicted last week of raping a 12-year-old boy, was first brought to the DA’s attention in 2006 before Rombardo was in the office when a mother complained her son was a victim.

“Had this office in 2006 just filed charges on the first victim that came forward and reported it, we wouldn’t have had four other known victims,” he said.

Krueger said he’s proud of the office’s victims and witness services program, which he said he has helped expand since arriving in Carson City.

“What I feel I’ve been able to accomplish in the last two years is bringing the whole office together as a team and really making it so that we try cases as a team, make decisions about prosecutions and how to help people as a team,” he said.

He said the office has “become a really happy place to work — people are excited about their jobs.”

Krueger said part of that is the training he has implemented — including having a team prosecute cases.

Krueger said he also has worked with sheriff’s investigators particularly to improve their interview skills.

He said he wants to further develop the business protection program to help the community stop embezzlement and other such crimes from happening in the first place.

Krueger said there will be changes if he’s elected: “I think the structure is good for the most part. But as the economy changes, your needs for your clients change. The needs of the supervisors, the city manager, department heads. You have to be flexible in the needs for your clients.”

•••

Woodbury has practiced 16 years, beginning with the Carson DA’s office from 1999-2003. Since then, he has been primarily in business litigation.

He said he sees things in the office, “that need to be improved.”

“I want to talk to the folks there and find out what is in that office that’s making good people leave,” he said.

As for the office’s civil duties, he said: “When the supervisors ask a legal question or need legal guidance they should get it.

“We need to do a better job of giving the Board of Supervisors legal guidance and leave the policy decisions to them.”

He said he think’s its important the DA be someone with private practice experience.

“I think the judgment you get from representing big business, small business and individuals out in private practice is incredibly valuable in making the decisions you have to make as district attorney.”

He said despite his relatively brief tenure with the DA’s office, he has experience handling criminal cases including child sex cases and a murder case as well as cases before the Nevada Supreme Court.

“I don’t have any burning desire to be in politics,” Woodbury said. “If the DA’s office was running smoothly and things were going along well and I thought they were serving the community well, I wouldn’t run. But that’s not the case.”

He said everyone needs to follow a professional code: “When they’re just bickering because they don’t like the person on the other side or don’t respect the person on the other side, we’re just wasting effort on things that don’t have any place in a professional office.”

“In conjunction with retaining good people in the office, I think you’re going to see significant improvement in the work quality within the office,” Woodbury said.

He said the current office “has got good people.”

He also said Neil was “a good change” following a long tenure as DA by Noel Waters. But he said he thinks electing him would be another good change.

“I think he has done a number of admirable things with the office,” Woodbury said citing the victims and witness services program. “I think the office needs improvement but I will say I’m not going to change things just for the sake of changing them because there are good things that have happened.”

Early voting begins Saturday. The district attorney’s office is a nonpartisan office. The winner will serve a 4-year term.

=================================================

Chief Justice James W. Hardesty announced interviews to fill the vacancy in the Ninth Judicial District are tentatively scheduled for the week of February 23, 2015 at the Nevada Supreme Court in Carson City, and will be open to the public. In addition, interviews to fill the two vacant positions in the Eighth Judicial District are tentatively scheduled for the week of March 16, at the Regional Justice Center in Las Vegas, and will be open to the public.

The Commission will then deliberate and nominate three finalists for each open seat. Those names will be submitted to Governor Brian Sandoval for the appointment.

The Commission is composed of seven permanent members – the Supreme Court Chief Justice, three non-attorneys appointed by the Governor, and three attorneys appointed by the State Bar of Nevada. Neither the Governor nor the State Bar may appoint more than two permanent members from the same political party, and cannot appoint two members from the same county.

For District Court vacancies, two temporary members are appointed from the judicial district where the vacancy occurs – a non-attorney by the Governor and an attorney by the State Bar – bringing the Commission membership to nine.

STATE WASTING NO TIME IN STARTING NEW APPELLATE COURT

By SANDRA CHEREB
SPECIAL TO THE Las Vegas REVIEW-JOURNAL

It took 42 years and five trips to the ballot box before Nevada voters agreed to establish an intermediate appellate court. Now state officials are on a fast track to get the court up and running to begin hearing cases as early as January.

Voters on Nov. 4 approved Question 1, a constitutional amendment authorizing an Appeals Court, by a margin of 54 percent to 46 percent. It was the fifth time such a measure had appeared on the ballot, with similar questions failing in 1972, 1980, 1992 and 2010.

The three-member intermediate appellate court is seen as crucial to clearing a backlog of cases that has grown over the years to untenable levels.

“The Supreme Court has been overwhelmed for the last few years,” said Robert Eisenberg of the Reno law firm Lemons, Grundy &Eisenberg. “It’s built up as Nevada’s population grew and there were more lawsuits, more cases and more District Court judges added.

“It was almost impossible for the Supreme Court to catch up,” Eisenberg said. “(It) just had too much work to do and there weren’t enough hours in the day.”

Statistics show Nevada’s seven-member Supreme Court receives more than 350 new appeals per justice each year, the highest caseload in the country. It was carrying a backlog of about 2,200 cases.

Money to finance the Appeals Court was authorized by the 2013 Legislature in anticipation of voter support. The state Board of Examiners, headed by Gov. Brian Sandoval, on Wednesday approved $782,500 to fund the court for the rest of the current fiscal year that ends June 30.

The request goes to the Legislature’s Interim Finance Committee for final action.

Sandoval, a former federal judge, plans to appoint the three judges in early December. They will serve a two-year appointment before the seats are up for election in 2016. The positions pay an annual salary of $165,000.

Sandoval said the new appellate court should provide a level of certainty for the business community that legal disputes will be resolved as quickly as possible.

“That’s something that businesses take into consideration, the ability to get finality with regard to a legal determination in a prompt manner,” he said. “And in Nevada, that has in some cases taken several years.”

More than 30 people have applied for the three positions. The Judicial Selection Commission will conduct public inter­views in early December, with names of finalists to be forwarded to Sandoval by Dec. 5.

“The governor has indicated his intention to interview those candidates who are nominated during the week of Dec. 8,” said Justice James Hardesty, who traveled the state urging support for the ballot question.

In the meantime, the Supreme Court is drafting rules on how cases will be distributed to the new appellate court and will hold a public hearing on the proposal Dec. 4.

All appeals will still be filed with the Supreme Court, which would then “deflect” certain cases to the appellate court.

“The rule will contain a listing of case categories that would presumptively transfer cases to the Court of Appeals,” Hardesty said.

Those cases likely would include criminal appeals, nonbusiness cases with a judgment value below a certain threshold; administrative agency appeals, child custody and visitation disputes; and challenges to lower court procedures, Hardesty said.

“We recognize that the court can only reasonably handle about 800 cases per year, so many of the cases … may remain with the Supreme Court just because you don’t want to create for the appellate court the problem the Supreme Court was trying to resolve,” he said.

The Supreme Court will keep all death penalty and business court cases, large judgments appeals, and all cases involving tax and water issues. Conflicts between local governments, different branches of governments, election law and constitutional interpretations also will remain with the high court.

“There is certainly an awful lot of work to be retained by the Supreme Court,” Hardesty said.

Appellate court rulings can be appealed to the Supreme Court, but justices will have discretion on whether to consider the case or allow the lower court ruling to stand.

“The expectation is that most of these cases will be resolved at the Court of Appeals level,” Hardesty said.

WHY IT MATTERS

The goal is to speed up the appeals process, which can take two years or longer, and free up the Supreme Court to author precedent-setting opinions establishing law for lawyers and lower courts to rely on when cases involving similar issues are litigated.

“Sometimes the Supreme Court will resolve a big issue in a case but not have the time to write an opinion,” said Daniel Polsenberg, an appellate attorney with the firm of Lewis Rocha Rothgerber. “Then the issue will come up again and again.

“Taking a simple order that resolves a case and making it into a legally binding opinion takes a lot of time. Sometimes the Nevada Supreme Court just doesn’t have the time to do that. (It’s) got 2,200 cases a year,” he said.

“It’s like an ‘I Love Lucy’ episode,” Polsenberg said of the high court’s caseload. “The conveyor belt keeps moving and you have to resolve all the cases as they go through. Under the old system, something has to give.”

The Appeals Court will also ensure that cases that don’t rise to the level of constitutional importance will receive the review and attention the parties involved deserve, he said.

“Maybe a child custody case isn’t important to anybody else, but it’s terribly important to those parents and those children,” Polsenberg said.

Nevada became the 41st state to implement an appellate court, 20 years after the last state, Mississippi, did so in 1995, according to the National Center for State Courts.

If the experience in Mississippi is any indication, Nevada’s new court will greatly improve court operations and case resolution.

“It was implemented to address the backlog, and it’s done that,” said Beverly Kraft, spokeswoman for the administrative office of courts in Jackson, Miss.

Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Leslie D. King agreed.

“It was averaging about five years to get a case through the system, from notice of appeal to issuance of a decision,” said King, who served on the Court of Appeals following its creation until he was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2011 and subsequently elected.

Nevada’s appellate court is similar to Mississippi’s in that both use a deflective process where all appeals are filed with the state Supreme Court, which assigns some to the appellate court while retaining others. Like Nevada, appeals of appellate court rulings are at the discretion of the Supreme Court.

King echoed the sentiments of Nevada lawyers and judges, saying reducing the time for appeals to be decided has been particularly helpful in child custody disputes.

“Those are extremely difficult situations,” King said. “In a child custody action … that distance between parents can become greater and greater as time gets by. But if you can get a quick resolution to those issues, it allows the family to try to heal.”

But Mississippi has another law that has also greatly cut down the time frame for appeals. Under state law, the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court are required to render a decision within 270 days from when the final brief in a case is filed.

“The courts in recent years have always met that deadline and frequently decide cases in a shorter period of time,” Kraft said. “It has led to timely decisions so people can get their matters resolved. That was the intent of the legislation.”

The strict time constraint has reduced delay tactics by lawyers, King said.

“For a long period of time, particularly in civil damages cases, we saw more and more appeals,” he said. “But I think now that the disposition of those cases has been expedited, you don’t see those appeals that are done merely to string out the case.”

Court of Appeals Chief Judge L. Joseph Lee said the Mississippi appellate court handles about 2½ times the volume of cases as does the Supreme Court.

The Appeals Court has 10 judges, while the Supreme Court has nine justices. Lee wondered how Nevada will do with only three judges on the appellate court.

“You’re going to operate the Court of Appeals with only three judges”? Lee said. “They’re going to be worked. They’re definitely going to be worked.”

Hardesty said although Nevada’s constitutional amendment allows for expansion of the Appeals Court, there is no immediate plan to do so.

“We are not. We’ve never planned to do that. We have no intention of doing that next year,” Hardesty said.

He said a bill draft request submitted by the Supreme Court for the legislative session that begins in February was intended as a place holder in case clean-up language was needed to implement the new court.

“That (bill draft request) was never intended to be used and will not be used to request the Legislature to add more judges,” Hardesty said.

FRAUD UPON THE COURT Reno, NV Judge Patrick Flanagan and 5 Nevada Supreme Court Justices completely fabricated an entire caseNevada Supreme Court Justice James Hardesty is the main spokesman for Question One on the November general-election ballot.

If passed by voters, it would establish an appeals court in Nevada. It would ease the overwhelming pressure on the state Supreme Court, which now is the only appeals court in the state.

Nevada is just one of 10 states that doesn’t have an intermediate appeals court. Because of that, the Nevada Supreme Court’s backlog on undecided cases has mushroomed from 1,515 five years ago to more than 2,200 today.

It can take up to four years, in some cases, to get an appeal decided in Nevada. No wonder the theme of the campaign for Question One is: Justice delayed is justice denied.

Not only does the current system take its toll on justice, it also takes its toll on the justices who decide the cases.

“There is a considerable personal toll,” Hardesty said. “You’re exhausted.

“As you may know, I read until midnight, 1 or 2 o’clock in the morning four nights a week,” Hardesty said. “When you do that, day in and day out, it takes quite a toll. And yet, quite frankly, you see these cases languishing in the system and you’re doing everything you possibly can to get them decided as soon as you can.

“Personally, it is very frustrating not to be able to resolve more cases more quickly because you know people’s lives are put on hold and it directly impacts them and their emotional state,” Hardesty said

 

Sounds like Nevada’s justices are overworked. And that is a terrible situation for anyone who is seeking a fair ruling from the state’s Supreme Court.

Child custody cases can take up to four years to resolve, Hardesty said. Lengthy time frames also apply to death-row appeals and criminal cases. Kids could be almost grown – and their childhoods ruined — by the time the Supreme Court renders its decision.

Perhaps the justices have made decisions on very important matters while they are mentally fatigued, which is good for no one.

Despite the potential for mental fatigue, the current overwhelming case load can also cause sleepless nights for the justices.

Journalist Jon Ralston, on his Ralston Reports TV show, asked Hardesty if he ever woke up worrying if the court didn’t spend enough time on any particular case.

Hardesty softly replied “yes,” then elaborated:

“It leaves you with sleepless nights,” Hardesty said. “And everyone of us probably has some real misgivings about whether we have given adequate time to some of the serious questions that are in front of us.”

justice denied

THIS ISSUE WITH THE NEVADA Supreme Court is nothing new. Voters have rejected the establishment of an intermediate or appeals court four times since the late 1970s. The latest rejection came in 2010.

Then, the issue was tied to an initiative where judges would first be appointed by the governor instead of being elected. They would retain their jobs if they could then garner 55 percent of the vote in an election.

The initiative passed in Clark County but ultimately was defeated, since it lost in Nevada’s 16 other counties. Hardesty noted that the 2014 campaign for an appeals court doesn’t have to carry that “appointment” baggage into the election.

But really, it kinda does.

First, the court of appeals would consist of three judges. The governor would appoint them after nominations from the Commission on Judicial Selection. The three initial judges would be appointed to two-year terms. Then they would face election for a six-year term.

Could the governor stack the appeals court with his cronies?

Then, once appointed, they would have the power of incumbency heading into their elections. And a six-year term? That’s a long as a U.S. senator.

STATE SEN. GREG BROWER, R-Reno, is heading a political action committee (along with Sen. Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas) to raise money for an “educational campaign” to inform the voters about the need for an appeals court.

Some expected Brower to run for attorney general this year. But he didn’t. Instead, the GOP candidate for that office is Adam Laxalt, the grandson of former U.S. Sen. and Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt.

Brower has yet to endorse Laxalt, even though they belong to the same party.

“I just really have not been focused on that or involved in that,” Brower said of the AG’s race. “I’m working very hard on getting our (state) senate candidates elected. As you know, we are one seat shy of a majority (in the state senate). We have three very tough races in Southern Nevada that will determine the balance of power in the senate, so we are working very hard on that. And that is where my focus is.”

Brower noted that his name was tied to the AG’s race as the presumed Republican candidate long before Laxalt came into the picture.

“I just really was not interested in running,” he said. “I know there was scuttlebutt, but there’s scuttlebutt about a lot of things. But I am committed to the work I am doing in the (state) senate and I have a very busy law practice and I was just not interested in doing that (running for AG).”

Nevada U.S. Attorney sees rise in number of corrupt Nevada lawyers prosecuted

Las Vegas Review Journal - Tonja Brown "The Nolan Klein Story"

Nevada ranks number one in the Country for the most corrupt attorneys… We need to clean up the corruption within our judicial system and it starts with arresting and prosecuting the corrupt attorneys and judges!

Prosecutors have noticed an “alarming” number of lawyers convicted of serious crimes in federal court in the past several years.tatro corrupt

A total of 23 lawyers, mostly from Las Vegas, have been convicted since 2008, according to the Nevada U.S. attorney’s office.

Since 2011, the number of convictions have increased nearly five times over the previous three years, records show.

There were four convictions between 2008 and 2010, but 19 between 2011 and this year. Eight attorneys either pleaded guilty or were convicted by a jury in 2013 alone.

Dan Bogdenusdoj“In the last several years, the number of lawyers charged with federal crimes has increased dramatically,” U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden says.

“Although we cannot speculate as to the reason for the rise in numbers, we can say that it is embarrassing and sad when lawyers violate the very laws they have taken an oath to uphold.”

Bogden calls the growing rate of attorney prosecutions “alarming” in his 2013 annual report on the accomplishments of his office.

He isn’t alone in noticing the increase.crime

“There’s been a significant uptick,” says David Clark, the chief counsel for the State Bar of Nevada, which regulates lawyers. “It’s a combination of economic realities and the increased vigilance on the part of federal prosecutors to go after lawyers.”

Clark says attorneys have struggled in the failing economy just like everyone else and have been forced to look for other ways to make money, sometimes landing in legal and professional trouble.

Of the 23 convictions since 2008, a total of 19 involved financial crimes such as tax evasion, bank fraud and mortgage fraud, records show.

Bankruptcy attorney Randolph Goldberg pleaded guilty to tax evasion last year and is now serving a 1½-year sentence in federal prison. Defense lawyer and former prosecutor Paul Wommer, who was convicted by a jury of tax evasion last year, is serving a nearly 3½-year prison sentence. Both are temporarily suspended and can expect more disciplinary action from the State Bar when they get out of prison.

disbarredBusiness Woman Series 24Four Las Vegas attorneys — the late David Amesbury, Jeanne Winkler, Barry Levinson and Brian Jones — pleaded guilty to fraud charges in the federal investigation into the massive takeover of Las Vegas-area homeowners associations.

Amesbury killed himself weeks after he pleaded guilty, and the other three lawyers are cooperating with prosecutors and waiting to be sentenced.

Another attorney, Keith Gregory, is to stand trial in October in the HOA case, and one key target, attorney Nancy Quon, committed suicide before federal authorities could charge her.

Winkler was disbarred in 2011 for stealing money from her clients, and Levinson agreed to disbarment as part of the plea deal he struck with federal prosecutors earlier this year. He is currently suspended from practicing law.

kolo news coverage part 1

Other well-known lawyers have run afoul of the law:

■ Harvey Whittemore, a onetime political power broker, was convicted last year of unlawfully funneling more than $133,000 to the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat. He was sentenced to two years in prison and must surrender in August. Whittemore is temporarily suspended from practicing law while the State Bar considers further action.

■ Noel Gage, who specialized in personal injury cases, pleaded guilty in 2010 to obstruction of justice in a federal investigation into an alleged fraud scheme involving a network of lawyers and physicians. He was sentenced to three years probation. Gage is off probation and his law license is temporarily suspended until the end of July. He must apply for reinstatement.

■ Lawrence Davidson, caught up in a political corruption probe a dozen years ago, pleaded guilty to mail fraud, money laundering and several other charges, including those related to his unlawful flight to Israel in 2006 to avoid standing trial. Davidson agreed to disbarment in 2005 after he was originally charged. He eventually returned to Las Vegas and was sentenced in 2012 to eight years in prison.

■ Gerry Zobrist, once a part-time Las Vegas justice of the peace, pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud in a multimillion-dollar scheme to use straw buyers to unlawfully purchase homes in the valley. He was sentenced to seven years in federal prison. His law license has been suspended pending further disciplinary action.

REASON FOR THE RISE

drunk lawyerThomas Pitaro, a respected criminal defense lawyer who has been practicing in Las Vegas for 40 years, says the stress of the legal profession likely has contributed to the rise in criminal prosecutions of attorneys.coke

“I think there are very few attorneys who steal for the hell of it,” Pitaro says. “It’s systematic of other problems — drugs, alcohol, gambling and living above their means.”

Pitaro also believes federal authorities are spending more time investigating white collar and financial crimes that have a higher probability of involving lawyers and other professionals.

Clark says his organization has stepped up its own vigilance of lawyers in recent years and has been working closely with law enforcement authorities.

“We’ve been sharing more information and developing more contacts with law enforcement,” he explains.

Clark points to the Levinson case as a prime example of the State Bar’s strong working relationship with police and federal authorities.

At one point, Las Vegas police, federal authorities and the State Bar all were working cases against Levinson at the same time, Clark says.

culture-of-corruption

In his federal deal, Levinson not only pleaded guilty in the HOA fraud case, but he also pleaded guilty to tax evasion and embezzling more than $243,000 from his clients. His deal calls for him to receive no less than two years in prison. Any time behind bars he gets in state court on theft charges will run concurrently with his federal sentence.

Levinson’s willingness to agree to disbarment in his federal plea was a first for prosecutors and the State Bar. Goldberg last year agreed to a two-year suspension in his federal plea agreement.

“It shows the evolution of our cooperation with law enforcement authorities,” Clark says.

NEVADA STATE BAR DISCIPLINE

Something else that is evolving is the State Bar’s approach to disciplining lawyers.

bad lawyers nevadaA Nevada Supreme Court rule says the State Bar can move to temporarily suspend a lawyer upon a “final judgment of conviction,” and the bar has waited over the years until a lawyer is sentenced. That’s when the federal courts, which see most of the criminal cases, recognize a final judgment of conviction.

But two criminal cases against lawyers, one in Clark County District Court and another in federal court, has Clark looking for temporary suspensions before sentencing.

The District Court case is against defense attorney Brian Bloomfield, who pleaded guilty in December to felony charges stemming from a fraud investigation into a sweeping courthouse counseling scheme. Bloomfield has continued to represent clients in court the past six months while waiting to be sentenced.

The federal case involves Brian Jones, who pleaded guilty in the HOA case more than two years ago and is also waiting to be sentenced. Jones has since moved to Utah and is not practicing law in Las Vegas, but his license remains active.how-our-courts-are-used-by-criminals

Last month Clark filed a petition with the state Supreme Court seeking a temporary suspension for Bloomfield while the State Bar prepares to file a complaint against him that could lead to his disbarment.

The State Bar counsel filed a similar petition last week to get Jones temporarily suspended.

Clark is hoping the Supreme Court will more clearly define the broad rule, which also allows the State Bar to seek a suspension after a guilty plea or jury conviction.

“In the past this hasn’t been so much of a problem because there hasn’t been a long disconnect between a guilty plea and a sentencing,” Clark recently said. “But lately, we’ve been seeing a greater delay.”

Why can Ty protest?

Mr. Ty Robben protested in front of the DA’s Office.  I believe District Attorney Vern Pierson said at that time that Mr. Robben had a First Amendment right to protest.

Since then, Mr. Robben was arrested on false charges in Nevada and those charges were dropped.1st amendment

I’m asking Mr. Pierson to expound on his interpretation of the Constitutional Rights of a citizen to protest so that all citizens will feel safe should we feel the need to protest as Ty Robben did.

I can’t recall him ever filing charges on anybody who chooses to protest peacefully.

It is called prior restraint. But that doesn’t seem to stop Nevada judges.

On the Friday before Tuesday’s primary election, a Reno judge ordered state Senate candidate Gary Schmidt to stop running a television ad that accused his Republican primary opponent, incumbent Ben Kieckhefer, of being a supporter of Harry Reid in the 2010 election, according to press accounts.

FBI Color of Law Abuses

Gavel

U.S. law enforcement officers and other officials like judges, prosecutors, and security guards have been given tremendous power by local, state, and federal government agencies—authority they must have to enforce the law and ensure justice in our country. These powers include the authority to detain and arrest suspects, to search and seize property, to bring criminal charges, to make rulings in court, and to use deadly force in certain situations.

Preventing abuse of this authority, however, is equally necessary to the health of our nation’s democracy. That’s why it’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. “Color of law” simply means that the person is using authority given to him or her by a local, state, or federal government agency.

The FBI is the lead federal agency for investigating color of law abuses, which include acts carried out by government officials operating both within and beyond the limits of their lawful authority. Off-duty conduct may be covered if the perpetrator asserted his or her official status in some way.

During 2012, 42 percent of the FBI’s total civil rights caseload involved color of law issues—there were 380 color of law cases opened during the year. Most of the cases involved crimes that fell into into five broad areas:

  • Excessive force;
  • Sexual assaults;
  • False arrest and fabrication of evidence;
  • Deprivation of property; and
  • Failure to keep from harm.

Excessive force: In making arrests, maintaining order, and defending life, law enforcement officers are allowed to use whatever force is “reasonably” necessary. The breadth and scope of the use of force is vast—from just the physical presence of the officer…to the use of deadly force. Violations of federal law occur when it can be shown that the force used was willfully “unreasonable” or “excessive.”

Sexual assaults by officials acting under color of law can happen in jails, during traffic stops, or in other settings where officials might use their position of authority to coerce an individual into sexual compliance. The compliance is generally gained because of a threat of an official action against the person if he or she doesn’t comply.

False arrest and fabrication of evidence: The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right against unreasonable searches or seizures. A law enforcement official using authority provided under the color of law is allowed to stop individuals and, under certain circumstances, to search them and retain their property. It is in the abuse of that discretionary power—such as an unlawful detention or illegal confiscation of property—that a violation of a person’s civil rights may occur.

Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure. In the case of deprivation of property, the color of law statute would be violated by unlawfully obtaining or maintaining a person’s property, which oversteps or misapplies the official’s authority.

The Fourteenth Amendment secures the right to due process; the Eighth Amendment prohibits the use of cruel and unusual punishment. During an arrest or detention, these rights can be violated by the use of force amounting to punishment (summary judgment). The person accused of a crime must be allowed the opportunity to have a trial and should not be subjected to punishment without having been afforded the opportunity of the legal process.

Failure to keep from harm: The public counts on its law enforcement officials to protect local communities. If it’s shown that an official willfully failed to keep an individual from harm, that official could be in violation of the color of law statute.

Filing a Complaint

To file a color of law complaint, contact your local FBI office by telephone, in writing, or in person. The following information should be provided:

  • All identifying information for the victim(s);
  • As much identifying information as possible for the subject(s), including position, rank, and agency employed;
  • Date and time of incident;
  • Location of incident;
  • Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any witness(es);
  • A complete chronology of events; and
  • Any report numbers and charges with respect to the incident.

You may also contact the United States Attorney’s Office in your district or send a written complaint to:

Assistant Attorney General
Civil Rights Division
Criminal Section
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, Northwest
Washington, DC 20530

FBI investigations vary in length. Once our investigation is complete, we forward the findings to the U.S. Attorney’s Office within the local jurisdiction and to the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., which decide whether or not to proceed toward prosecution and handle any prosecutions that follow.

Civil Applications

Title 42, U.S.C., Section 14141 makes it unlawful for state or local law enforcement agencies to allow officers to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights protected by the Constitution or U.S. laws. This law, commonly referred to as the Police Misconduct Statute, gives the Department of Justice authority to seek civil remedies in cases where law enforcement agencies have policies or practices that foster a pattern of misconduct by employees. This action is directed against an agency, not against individual officers. The types of issues which may initiate a pattern and practice investigation include:

  • Lack of supervision/monitoring of officers’ actions;
  • Lack of justification or reporting by officers on incidents involving the use of force;
  • Lack of, or improper training of, officers; and
  • Citizen complaint processes that treat complainants as adversaries.

Under Title 42, U.S.C., Section 1997, the Department of Justice has the ability to initiate civil actions against mental hospitals, retardation facilities, jails, prisons, nursing homes, and juvenile detention facilities when there are allegations of systemic derivations of the constitutional rights of institutionalized persons.

Report Civil Rights Violations

Resources

The various Judges(Judge Harold “Hal” G. Albright, Judge Charles McGee and Federal Judge Miranda Du)  involved in the various legal proceedings involving Ty Robben and the Carson City DA Neil Rombardo, Mark Krueger and Judge Tatro have a mandatory duty by law under the Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct and canons to report John Tatro, Neil Rombardo and Mark Krueger to the appropriate authorities. In this case that would be the FBI, the State Bar and the Commission on Judicial Discipline.

Nevada Judaical Code of Conduct:

Rule 2.14.  Disability and Impairment.  A judge having a reasonable belief that the performance of a lawyer or another judge is impaired by drugs or alcohol, or by a mental, emotional, or physical condition, shall take appropriate action, which may include a confidential referral to a lawyer or judicial assistance program.

COMMENT

      [1] “Appropriate action” means action intended and reasonably likely to help the judge or lawyer in question address the problem and prevent harm to the justice system. Depending upon the circumstances, appropriate action may include but is not limited to speaking directly to the impaired person, notifying an individual with supervisory responsibility over the impaired person, or making a referral to an assistance program.

      [2] Taking or initiating corrective action by way of referral to an assistance program may satisfy a judge’s responsibility under this Rule. Assistance programs have many approaches for offering help to impaired judges and lawyers, such as intervention, counseling, or referral to appropriate health care professionals. Depending upon the gravity of the conduct that has come to the judge’s attention, however, the judge may be required to take other action, such as reporting the impaired judge or lawyer to the appropriate authority, agency, or body. See Rule 2.15.

      Rule 2.15.  Responding to Judicial and Lawyer Misconduct.

      (A) A judge having knowledge that another judge has committed a violation of this Code that raises a substantial question regarding the judge’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a judge in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (B) A judge having knowledge that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct that raises a substantial question regarding the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects shall inform the appropriate authority.

      (C) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that another judge has committed a violation of this Code shall take appropriate action.

      (D) A judge who receives information indicating a substantial likelihood that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct shall take appropriate action.

COMMENT

      [1] Taking action to address known misconduct is a judge’s obligation. Paragraphs (A) and (B) impose an obligation on the judge to report to the appropriate disciplinary authority the known misconduct of another judge or a lawyer that raises a substantial question regarding the honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness of that judge or lawyer. Ignoring or denying known misconduct among one’s judicial colleagues or members of the legal profession undermines a judge’s responsibility to participate in efforts to ensure public respect for the justice system. This Rule limits the reporting obligation to those offenses that an independent judiciary must vigorously endeavor to prevent.

      [2] A judge who does not have actual knowledge that another judge or a lawyer may have committed misconduct but receives information indicating a substantial likelihood of such misconduct, is required to take appropriate action under paragraphs (C) and (D). Appropriate action may include, but is not limited to, communicating directly with the judge who may have violated this Code, communicating with a supervising judge, or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body. Similarly, actions to be taken in response to information indicating that a lawyer has committed a violation of the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct may include but are not limited to communicating directly with the lawyer who may have committed the violation or reporting the suspected violation to the appropriate authority or other agency or body.

      Rule 2.16.  Cooperation With Disciplinary Authorities.

      (A) A judge shall cooperate and be candid and honest with judicial and lawyer disciplinary agencies.

      (B) A judge shall not retaliate, directly or indirectly, against a person known or suspected to have assisted or cooperated with an investigation of a judge or a lawyer.

COMMENT

      [1] Cooperation with investigations and proceedings of judicial and lawyer discipline agencies, as required in paragraph (A), instills confidence in judges’ commitment to the integrity of the judicial system and the protection of the public.

Carson City Sheriff, DA and corrupt Judges retaliate against Ty Robben after being sued

power corruptsThe Carson City Sheriff, DA and corrupt Judges retaliate after being sued by threatening civil rights activist Ty Robben with “charges” by an unnamed “political official”… This is another attempt by the corrupt, evil and vindictive Carson City and Nevada government to try to shutdown this website, quash the multimillion dollar lawsuits and put people in jail or prison for doing nothing.

This website and Ty Robben do not advocate for violence, we are against violence and corruption. The ones who want violence are the corrupt and evil officials who want me dead or exposing them and ending their political careers.

The problem is the Nevada and Carson City government uses violence against the citizens.  This website provides stories and links to Nevada corruption and police violence.  This website cuts through the censored news to bring the story to the public and asks the real questions and presents the facts.

Ty Robben will stand up to any corrupt officials, including the Sheriff, DA and Judge(s). There are a ton of corrupt officials in Nevada, and especially Carson City. These people will kill you to shut you up, they will jail you and poison your food like they did to me, they trump up false charges. These people are “bullies” who abuse their power and create much bigger problems by abusing and harassing people who stand up to them and expose their corruption.

There is so much corruption, it can make you sick. This is very real and real people are suffering because of the corruption. With the incidents like Ruby Ridge and Waco, Texas – there has been some reform, but Nevada clearly lacks the reform needed. We know the FBI has been made aware of this instant situation, yet they seem to let the problems fester.

This website gets hundreds of hits everyday and has well over 100,000 hits in addition to the youtube and facebook sites. Clearly, the corrupt officials are angered and want to shut me down by doing more of the same retaliation. How far will they go?  Apparently they want me dead… Stay tuned.

I was told by Carson City detective Dan Gomes and his partner named Olsen that something related to this website constitutes a “threat” to an unnamed public official. I asked who the official was and what the threat was, and they did not say. I there is a threat or something they want taken down, they need to tell me and they have not.

I suspect that my lawsuit which exposes the corruption with the Department of Alternative Sentencing rattled their cage. The story about the Judge John Tatro shooting and the “confession” made by the perpetrator also rattled their cage. Dan Gomes is back peddling on the story he told me in an effort to cover up that case.  Ironically, this website has assisted in fighting crime and has offered information leading to the real suspects of crimes. There is no “threat” by Mr. Robben, instead they threaten Mr. Robben.

The Carson City Sheriff department can not be trusted. Everything has been one big lie and cover up from the beginning when I served a subpoena to the NDOT Director  named Susan Martinovich who evaded service and ran over my foot with her SUV. The Sheriff, DA and courts work lock stock and barrel to harass me and violate my civil rights in retaliation when in act they should admit their own wrongdoings and settle the civil and criminal cases instead of obstructing justice.  They won’t and they will continue to lie, cheat and make false accusations against me.

I want to make it very, very clear in this post that I do not want violence – I want justice. I have not threatened anyone with a preemptive strike of violence. I have made my actions speak as in filing court motions and lawsuits – not AR15’s, not AK47’s or anything that would be a threat. These people know that. I have stated that I will take them down politically and legally – and I have.

They know I have started to write a tell all book and they are concerned that I have even more embarrassing information to expose them, and I do. So they want to label me the next Julian Assange or Edward Snowden. Again, maybe they should settle these matters, admit their wrongdoings that we all know about and resign from office.

White-wolf-and-black-wolf-fightingTy Robben has made a pledge to follow his faith and listen to the “White Wolf”. This whole case and situation can be explained as good and evil. Ty Robben is fighting an evil entity “Black Wolf” that thrives on bullying, lawlessness, retaliation and greed to accomplish their goals at any cost.

Rather than all into the trap of the black wolf, I must feed the White Wolf which represents the good. I must listen to the positive thoughts and have trust that God is pointing me in the right direction. The Black Wolf can be defeated by not feeding it and the White Wolf will grow stronger by feeding it with positive energy. The White Wolf will prevail.

Here that Black Wolves use deception to distract away from the truth, as we all can clearly see. The White Wolf brings light and truth to which the Black Wolf is afraid of and runs into the darkness.

Carson City is a Den of Corruption or the Black Wolves. The Black Wolf who alleges that I have been “stalking” and “threatening” and even “Intimidating” will not even release his or her name to me or the exact facts of the said allegation. This is listed as CCSO case 13-5924.

CCSO detective Dan Gomes has threatened me that he is forwarding this case to the Carson City District Attorney Neil Rombardo and Travis Lucia who is a conflict-of-interest as I am suing them both personally. Judge John Tatro has already admitted he is bias and prejudiced against me since he falsely accused me once already of shooting the front door of his house. I was cleared of that allegation by the CCSO Dan Gomes after I fully cooperated and even provided information about that actual person who confessed to the shooting! I am suing John Tatro.

Nice story, isn’t it? It is not so hard to resonate with the “feeding” of anger, jealousy, envy and greed. These emotions can really have power over us and we can see how we keep fueling them and feel how hard it is to “snap out of it”. What also sounds pretty convincing and hopeful is the idea that we have a choice. We can stop feeding the black wolf and start feeding the white wolf at any given moment. It’s the whole spiritual path, or the path to happiness and fulfillment in a nutshell. And I don’t know about you but the third thing that definitely speaks to me is that it’s a never ending battle. Not that I like it but I surely resonate with it.

Stop feeding the black wolf. Feed the white wolf. It’s that simple. But it ain’t easy.

But I found out something really cool about the white wolf. Where the shoulder height of the black wolf can reach a maximum of 32-34 inches (80-85 cm), the white wolf can grow into the size of a horse. When a well developed white wolf enters a room filled with back wolves something changes. The underdeveloped white wolves realize they are potentially a lot stronger than their black bullies. All of a sudden they got back-up. And every strong white wolf will back his weaker brothers and sisters up. Always.

Judging the Judges: Nevada Supreme Court Justices say they take criticism, comments to heart

nevada supreme courtThis story came out in 2011. In 2013, the Nevada Supreme Court has done little to end the rampant judicial corruption in Nevada that earned the State a D- (Judicial corruption got a D+) grade for Corruption.
Nevada is a shit hole of corruption and the Nevada Supreme Court at the top of the crap heap.

Nevada Supreme Court protest

By Ed Vogel LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL CAPITAL BUREAU

CARSON CITY — In professional sports, any team that wins 70 percent or more of its games usually is a champion, or a close runner-up. Even teams successful about 55 percent of the time frequently gain a spot in the first round of playoffs.

If this guideline applies to the judiciary, Nevada Supreme Court justices — particularly Nancy Saitta, Michael Douglas and Michael Cherry, who are up for re-election this November — should be happy with results of the 2011 Judicial Performance Evaluation, a survey of Clark County lawyers by the Review-Journal. report card

A majority of the attorneys who rated the seven current justices said each should be retained by voters. The judges serve staggered six-year terms and take turns as chief justice.

Nearly 900 attorneys, or 19 percent of active, licensed lawyers in the Las Vegas area, voluntarily responded to the survey of all Southern Nevada and statewide judges. They were asked, however, to rate only those judges with whom they had sufficient and fairly recent experience. From 281 to 397 attorneys evaluated the justices individually. The lawyers again gave their top rating to Mark Gibbons, with 83 percent saying he should be returned to office. Three others were not far behind: Ron Parraguirre had 81 percent approval, while Douglas and Cherry both scored 79 percent.

James Hardesty also had strong favorable support at 71 percent.

Further behind were the two female justices. Kristina Pickering had 63 percent support, while current Chief Justice Saitta fared poorest at 56 percent.

If past examples are any indicator, the survey’s retention scores clearly are important to the justices.

Thomas Steffen and Charles Springer didn’t run for re-election when their retention scores in the 1990s dropped into the 30s.

And while Deborah Agosti cited health reasons when she chose not to run for re-election in 2004, her announcement came two weeks after her retention score had dropped to 44 percent.

That drop came in the wake of a public furor over the court allowing the Legislature to pass tax increases without the constitutionally required two-thirds majority.

All seven current justices agreed to comment about their survey evaluations.

NANCY SAITTA

NANCY SAITTA

NANCY SAITTA

Although her retention approval was the lowest of the seven sitting justices, Saitta’s score marked an improvement over surveys in 2008 (45 percent) and 2010 (50 percent).

“I think constructive criticism is helpful,” Saitta said. “All of us take what is said about us seriously. I am very happy I have improved.”

Even when she was a district judge, however, Saitta received relatively low retention scores in surveys and still won elections.

Saitta pulled the biggest upset in the 2006 state Supreme Court elections when she defeated incumbent Nancy Becker by almost 9 percentage points.

“I work hard and I am a committed justice,” said Saitta, who intends to file for re-election Tuesday . “I am grateful for the support I received, even though the number is less than I would like it to be.”

In general, lawyers made flattering comments about Saitta. One called her compassionate, another a good activist for children, and still another said she was the “soul of the court.”

But about a third of the rating lawyers called her less than adequate on three traits closely related to knowing the law and using it well — being prepared for specific cases, applying law and rules properly, and explaining decisions. Hers were the court’s worst scores on those qualities.

MIKE CHERRY

MIKE CHERRY

MIKE CHERRY

Cherry said he believes the survey bodes well for his re-election hopes.

“I am happy with the results,” he said, noting his retention score has increased each year. “I work hard. I try to be fair. I try to do my best for the voters of Nevada.”

He quipped that lawyers who offered negative comments about him “must be people I ruled against sometime.”

In anonymous comments about the justices, most lawyers surveyed called Cherry an excellent judge, a nice guy and even a “lovely person.”

But about 20 percent said he is insufficiently free of bias toward parties or attorneys. Written comments elaborated:

“Easily swayed by high powered attorneys and clients. Way too plaintiff-oriented,” one lawyer wrote.

Another charged Cherry had a “taxpayer funded gastric bypass operation to reduce his girth.”

Cherry said that he’s never had such surgery and starts each morning with exercise.

Cherry did not face opposition when he first ran for the state Supreme Court in 2006 and does not know if he will in his re-election bid next November.

MICHAEL DOUGLAS

MICHAEL DOUGLAS

MICHAEL DOUGLAS

While Douglas would like to get a 100 percent retention score, he realizes his 79 percent is very respectable. He noted that it has improved during his years on the court.

The lawyers also give him good scores on specific judicial traits, especially courtesy and freedom from bias.

“I guess if you throw out 10 percent of the scores at the top and 10 percent at the bottom, you will find what people really think about you,” Douglas said.

Still, he said that the scores are more of a perception by lawyers on how justices are doing, because few lawyers actually appear in person before the court, yet 325 weighed in with opinions on him.

Douglas said he takes the criticism more to heart than the positive comments lawyers expressed in the survey: “You look at what they say and wonder, ‘How can I be better in what I am doing?’ ”

But most lawyers seem to consider Douglas a gentleman — polite, fair and balanced. One called him “the class of the court.”

He received a few negative comments, including one that Douglas “believes he is now above the human race.”

Douglas, the court’s first African-American justice, retained his seat in 2006 by a 12-point margin over Clark County Family Court Judge Dianne Steel. He said that he doesn’t know if he’ll have an opponent this year .

MARK GIBBONS

MARK GIBBONS

MARK GIBBONS

Gibbons has received the top retention score among justices in past surveys as well, and received high marks when he was a District Court judge, too.

“I thank the lawyers and the Review-Journal,” he said. “I try to work hard and be fair.”

Like other justices, Gibbons said he listens more to criticisms leveled by lawyers in the survey than to their compliments.

He is the only member of the court remaining from the 2003 panel that voted to suspend the state constitution and allow tax increases by a legislative majority vote of less than two-thirds.

Unlike Agosti and Becker, Gibbons was not hurt by his vote, and he won re-election in 2008 by more than a 2-to-1 margin over Frank Christensen.

Lawyers in the survey called Gibbons a solid judge, some even applying the adjectives of phenomenal or stellar. Only 4 percent said he lacks courtesy.

Few made negative comments, although one said Gibbons had to “suck up to the RJ” to win re-election after voting to suspend the two-thirds requirement.

KRISTINA PICKERINGKRISTINA PICKERING

Though pleased by positive survey comments, Pickering said that she’ll take the negative ones to heart and see if she can improve.

“All I can do is the best job I can,” said Pickering, the only justice without a background as a District Court judge. “I try to treat everyone with respect and base decisions on the legal issues as I see them.”

A longtime Clark County lawyer, Pickering was elected to the court in 2008 after a contested primary and a narrow 3 percentage point win over District Judge Deborah Schumacher of Washoe County.

While emphasizing she was “not making excuses,” Pickering said some lawyers who backed her opponent might not support her remaining on the court because of lingering resentments over that election.

But, she added, “I don’t think it is fair to expect people to give up loyalty until I earn their trust.”

Other critics, Pickering said, could be lawyers she sparred with as an attorney.

Several lawyers surveyed called her the best justice, and others remarked about her intelligence.

The primary criticism from a few lawyers was that Pickering takes pro-business positions. One lawyer called her a “corporate shill and a defense bar favorite,” and another said she favors corporations.

RON PARRAGUIRRERON PARRAGUIRRE

Parraguirre was unopposed in his November 2010 election bid, and in an email response to a question about his scores, called the survey a “helpful evaluative tool for the public” in looking at judges.

He was pleased with his high scores and most of the comments made by lawyers.

“Certainly in our profession, we cannot nor should we expect to please everyone,” he wrote. “Fifty percent of those who appear before us are not success­ful in their litigation matters.”

Parraguirre said he and other justices should try to properly apply the law, listen carefully and clearly explain their rulings. Even if litigants are not successful, they should have a sense their case was “fairly considered and given the time and attention it deserved.”

Lawyers responding to the survey said Parraguirre was a fine man, a great judge, a true professional and extremely courteous.

Few offered any negatives. One called him a “lousy politician,” which might have been intended as a compliment, considering that judges are supposed to be apolitical on the bench.

A couple of lawyers said his decisions favor insurance companies, with one lawyer calling him a “foot soldier of the insurance defense industry.”

JAMES HARDESTY

JAMES HARDESTY

JAMES HARDESTY

Hardesty is the only justice from Reno, and was unopposed in 2010 for his second term.

He said he’d have liked a higher score than his 71 percent retention rating, which was slightly lower than the 2010 survey: “I learn a lot from the comments. Having an adequate score means a great deal for me.”

Perhaps more than any other judge, Hardesty is well-known for challenging arguments advanced by lawyers before the court.

He worked closely with legislators in 2009 to establish the Foreclosure Mediation Program, a step praised by some, but criticized by others as a violation of the state constitution’s separation of powers clause.

One surveyed lawyer praised Hardesty’s work in establishing the program, saying it has helped keep homeowners in their homes.

Other lawyers’ comments mostly praised him, especially for intellect and work ethic.

Because he is from Northern Nevada, Hardesty said many Clark County attorneys do not know him as well as they do the other justices. He plans to “reach out to them” and interact more with the Southern Nevada legal community.

Nevada Supreme Court panel: Hearing on suspended Judge Steven Jones may proceed

Family Court Judge Steven JonesThe Nevada Supreme Court has denied a bid by suspended Family Court Judge Steven Jones to derail disciplinary proceedings against him.

The high court last month temporarily blocked the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline from holding a hearing on allegations Jones mishandled a romantic relationship with a prosecutor who appeared before him.

Jones’ lawyer, James Jimmerson, had asked the court to consider defense claims that the judicial commission failed to follow its own rules and violated the judge’s due process rights. But in a 2-to-1 decision, a three-justice panel on Thursday denied the defense petition and refused to delay the hearing process any longer.

Incline Village lawyer John Lane Shadek charged with securities fraud and theft from an elderly person

John Lane ShadekAn Incline Village lawyer made a court appearance Wednesday after he was charged with securities fraud and with bilking an elderly person out of more than $127,000 in an investment scheme.

John Lane Shadek, 63, was arrested on Tuesday and made his initial appearance in Reno Justice Court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The Nevada Secretary of State’s office, which investigated his case, said Shadek was held at Washoe County jail on $60,000 bail, but a jail spokeswoman said he was released on his own recognizance.

“Mr. Shadek took advantage of an elderly investor,” Democratic Secretary of State Ross Miller said in a statement. “It is difficult to watch someone’s retirement savings go down the drain and to feel sympathetic for the perpetrator. As a former criminal prosecutor, I hope for the stiffest penalties to be imposed on Mr. Shadek.”

Shadek could not be immediately reached for comment. He was no longer working at two law firms where his number was listed and the person who answered a number that was provided to the RGJ to reach him hung up after the reporter identified herself.

Devon Reese, a lawyer for Shadek in a civil case said he does not currently represent Shadek and could not comment on the criminal charges.

According to the criminal complaint, Maryanne Ingemanson of Incline Village, gave Shadek a $127,500 check payable to his company Capitol Funding Investments on Sept. 1, 2011. In exchange, Shadek gave her a promissory note guaranteed by Shadek and Ron Stover, the complaint said. Continue reading

Book Review: Whitehead Revisited – The Conspiracy to Stack the Nevada Supreme Court

Jerry C WhiteheadWhitehead Revisited – The Conspiracy to Stack the Nevada Supreme Court

Book Description – Publication Date: May 2, 2007

This extraordinary exposé of corruption and intrigue in the Nevada legal profession and judiciary tells the true story of the Whitehead Case, the longest and most controversial whiteheadcase in the history of the Nevada Supreme Court.
The tale begins with the efforts by the political enemies of Nevada district court judge Jerry Carr Whitehead to eliminate him from the bench. When the Nevada Supreme Court issued an order to the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline to temporarily halt further illegal actions against Judge Whitehead, the reaction of the Discipline Commission’s members and the state’s Attorney General (with the aid of the state’s largest newspaper) was swift and furious retaliation.

Whitehead Revisited reads like a John Grisham legal thriller. When the panel of judges in the Whitehead Case appointed a Special Master to investigate numerous violations of the court’s orders, he soon uncovered an elaborate conspiracy, orchestrated by members of a prominent Nevada law firm, to eliminate Justices Charles Springer and Thomas Steffen from the Nevada Supreme Court — and to replace them with justices more “friendly” to the firm.

Attempts to unlawfully intervene in the Whitehead Case in order to stop the investigation were then made by three other Nevada Supreme Court justices (two of whom had been disqualifed from the case) and the Attorney General – all of whom were on the Special Master’s list of prime suspects in his investigation of this nefarious plot to stack the Nevada Supreme Court.

Judge Vega to leave her throne

District Court Judge Valorie Vega announced Monday that she will not seek re-election next year.

Probably due to our post here: https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2012/11/16/lawless-america-draws-attention-in-las-vegas/

The 25-year jurist, who was first appointed to the bench in 1999 by Gov. Kenny Guinn, said, “During my time on the bench, I have seen the court make great strides to ensure that justice is served in our community, and I am honored and proud to be part of that.” WTF? Vega will serve until the end of her term in January 2015.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my 25-year tenure as a jurist, a position that allowed me to achieve my goal to serve the public,” she said. “I am most appreciative of the voters’ support, and I wish to thank my colleagues and my staff for their dedication, professionalism and assistance during my career in public service.” Continue reading

Clark County Court to Patricia Doninger: YOU’RE FIRED

The family court hearing master that allowed two court marshals to abuse, degrade and sexually assault a woman that was in court for a divorce matter was quietly fired last week.

Patricia Doninger is no longer employed by Clark County Courts after an alleged investigation into the August 11 incident in her court, during which she turned her back on a disgusting situation to play with the victim’s underage daughter. Doninger heartlessly ignored the young mother’s plea for help while two Clark County Court Marshalls tortured, groped and viciously attacked the Hispanic woman that was in court for a routine divorce case.

A court video of the incident was obtained by Las Vegas Tribune, and after reviewing it for several days, the newspaper was ready to begin a campaign to demand Hearing Master Patricia Doninger’s termination – but that is no longer necessary. Continue reading

Carson City Jail lacks a required Law Library violating inmates 14th Amendment to Due Process

law booksThe Carson City Jail lacks a required Law Library and resembles a Russian Gulag.

All inmates are incarcerated with no access to a law library in the Carson City Jail (Detention Center) pursuant to NRS 211.140(b) or lawyer from the Carson City jail thus violating Due Process.

The American Correctional Association (ACA) Adult Local Detention Standards as well ACA’s Core Jail standards as a basis for your policies. Here are the two relevant standards: ACA standard 4-ALDF-6A-03 (Accreditation standards)[1]

“Inmates have access to a law library if there is not adequate free legal assistance to assist them with criminal, civil, and administrative legal matters. Inmates have access to legal materials to facilitate the preparation of documents” lady justice

ACA Standard 1-Core-6A-03  (Core Jail Standards)

“Inmates have access to legal materials”

You will want to consider what the courts have said. Take a look at the following:

Jails and the Constitution:  An Overview” NIC publication authored by William Collins available as a download from:     http://static.nicic.gov/Library/022570.pdf

Text  from page 68:

“Over the years the Supreme Court decided several access to the courts cases involving inmates. The most important came in 1977, when the Court said that prison administrators have the affirmative duty to provide inmates with assistance or resources to allow them to meaningfully exercise their right of access to the courts, Bounds v. Smith.  Assistance could take the form of persons trained in the law (such as lawyers, paralegals, or law students), adequate law libraries, or some combination of these.

A 1996 Supreme Court decision dealing with access to the courts reaffirmed the core principle in Bounds, i.e., that the institution has an affirmative duty to provide some form of assistance (libraries or persons trained in the law) sufficient to give inmates the capability of filing non-frivolous lawsuits challenging their sentence or the conditions of their confinement, Lewis v. Casey.”

Kenny Furlong“The principle from Bounds (and now Lewis) has been extended to jails, although application of the principle may be slightly different in the jail context depending in part on how long inmates remain in the jail. The longer an inmate remains in a jail, the more the right of “access to the courts” places the same demands on the jail as it does on the prison”

The fundamental constitutional right of access to the courts requires prison authorities to assist inmates in the preparation and filing of meaningful legal papers by providing prisoners with adequate law libraries or adequate assistance from persons trained in the law.  This quote is taken from Bounds v. Smith (430 U.S. 817), the 1977 landmark Supreme Court decision, which led to the establishment of law libraries in most major U.S. prisons.

The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees state inmates the right to “adequate, effective, and meaningful” access to the courts. Bounds v. Smith, 430 U.S. 817, 822, 97 S.Ct. 1491, 1495, 52 L.Ed.2d 72 (1977); Green v. Johnson, 977 F.2d 1383, 1389 (10th Cir.1992). We impose “affirmative obligations” on the states to assure all inmates access to the courts and assistance in the preparation and filing of legal papers. Ramos v. Lamm, 639 F.2d 559, 583 (10th Cir.1980), cert. denied, 450 U.S. 1041, 101 S.Ct. 1759, 68 L.Ed.2d 239 (1981).

The Supreme Court instructs that states may satisfy this duty “by providing prisoners with adequate law libraries or adequate assistance from persons trained in the law.” Bounds, 430 U.S. at 828, 97 S.Ct. at 1498. Although this constitutional obligation does not require states to afford inmates unlimited access to a library, Twyman v. Crisp, 584 F.2d 352, 358 (10th Cir.1978), and there exists no rigid or static formula to assess whether a prison library’s resources pass constitutional muster, Johnson v. Moore, 948 F.2d 517, 521 (9th Cir.1991), states must provide inmates with “a reasonably adequate opportunity” to present their legal claims.

Carson City and Douglas County Department of Alternitve Sentencing violated civil rights of pre-trial Defendants

Image

Carson City DAS is Corrupt as hellEarlier we did a story on how the Carson City (as well as Douglas County) Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) is a fraud.

Here is an update to this DAS scandal: http://wp.me/p2cFpU-XC

Defendants under supervision by the Carson City, Nevada and/or Douglas County, Nevada DAS prior to July 01, 2013 were illegally deprived their Constitutional rights since DAS acted outside their jurisdiction pursuant to NRS 211A. Pre Trial Defendants were not defined as “Probationers” and DAS legally had no jurisdiction.

The 2013 Nevada Legislature passed SB101 which was signed into law by Governor Brian Sandoval and made effective July 01, 2013. SB101 was to protect their asses, however the law is not retroactive i.e. ex post facto.

We have discovered that many people, pre-trial Defendants,  who were awaiting a trial (pre trial release) were illegally supervised by DAS prior to July 01, 2013 may have civil recourse in the federal courts under Title 42, Section 1983 for civil rights violations against the DAS, the State, the Judge, the county and individuals for acting under the color of law outside their jurisdiction.

The leading case on this matter is United States v. Scott: Should a Pre-Trial Releasee Be Subject to Fourth Amendment Searches and Seizures Based on Probable Cause or Reasonable Suspicion?
By Gina M. Muccio

The Ninth Circuit affirmed the United States District Court for the District of Nevada’s suppression of a shotgun and statements made by defendant, Raymond Lee Scott (Scott), as a violation of Scott’s Fourth Amendment rights.

The court held that the government may not conduct a search of an individual released while awaiting trial, based on less than probable cause even when his Fourth Amendment rights were waived as a condition of pre-trial release.

How the Carson City Nevada Department of Alternative Sentencing is a Fraud

In some cities and counties in Nevada, the courts use a Department of Alternative Sentencing instead of the Sheriff to act pursuant to NRS Chapter 211A. The Carson City Court is notorious for using the Department of Alternative Sentencing as a mini police force akin to little NAZIs. Alternitive Sentencing

The Carson City Court, and in particular Judge John Tatro, uses the Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) to enforce  matters outside the “DAS”  jurisdiction. As a matter of law, DAS only has jurisdiction over “probationers”  as defined by NRS 211A.070  “Probationer” defined.  “Probationer” means a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor. The key word is “convicted”. Nowhere does the law give DAS jurisdiction over anyone else, including “pre trial” defendants.

Nevada judges are some of the highest paid in the Nation.

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 Planeta made $147,909.99 in 2011. 

Other “Alternative Sentencing” public servants are paid very, very well and others not:

— 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

Judge John Tatro was disqualified from the Todd “Ty” Robben case(s) due to bias and prejudice against Robben. A hearing was conducted on Monday June 17, 2013 with a “retired” Judge from Las Vegas named Judge Nancy Oesterle.

Judge Tatro psycho

Before Judge Tatro was kicked off the case, he made rulings without recording them! Judge Tatro has had a pattern of making orders and changing them in this cases. Now JP (Justice of Peace) Tatro completely fails to make a record and has to be called to testify under oath as a witness in the matter.

Judge Tatro can not recall the order he made and instead lies to the Judge that he can not remember.

Judge Tatro violated the following laws:

NRS 4.230  Docket: Entries; form.

      1.  Every justice must keep a docket, in which the justice must enter:

During the time Judge Tatro is trying to remember what he conveniently forgot, perhaps in on of his drunk stupors, the District Attorney Neil Rombardo is giving Tatro hand signals, also know in court slang as a “hand job” from the peanut gallery on how to answer the questions!

Both Mike Weston and I witness Neil Rombardo is giving Tatro hand signals from the seating area and talking to DA Travis Lucia across the bar.

This is clearly illegal manipulation of a witness under oath!

Judge John Tatro, DA Neil Rombardo and his corrupt prosecutor Travis Lucia LIE and CAN NOT BE TRUSTED.

Carson City Sheriff Sergeant Kenneth G. Steel exposes self to female deputy

carson city sheriff

Carson city sheriff

We have been telling you the Carson City, Nevada Sheriff Department is a train wreck and an example of complete and total police misconduct, incompetence, and now sexual perverts.

The Sergeant’s real name is Kenneth G. Steel, KRNV incorrectly used the name Kent Steel.

Well, we knew about the sexual perverts and homosexual activity in the  Carson City, Nevada Sheriff Department under Kenny Furlong’s watch. This Sheriff is the perfect example of a total shithead sucking off the Taxpayers tit. Kick this peace of shit out of office Carson City and get a clue. This is only the tip of the iceberg for the corrupt Carson City Sheriff and we’ve already brought you examples of various scandals and more are coming as soon as we an devote time to this cesspool of corruption. I must admit, it’s disturbing an ahrd to wriet about this shit. Many people think we make this crap up, but it is only validate by the MSM and in this case Reno’s KRNV news 4.

Carson City, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) —  A Carson City Sheriff’s Sergeant recently resigned after allegations that he allegedly exposed himself to a female deputy between January and February of 2013.

According to Sheriff Ken Furlong, Sergeant Kenneth G. Steele exposed himself and touched another female deputy.

Douglas County was called in to investigate the allegations. As the case stands right now there are no criminal charges against Steele and according to Sheriff Furlong, Steele actually admitted to the allegations.

News 4 requests for the investigation report have been denied and we’re waiting to hear back from the Douglas County District Attorney.

Sheriff Furlong says that the incident happened between January and February of 2013. Steele just resigned in the last three weeks, he had been with the force for 18 years.

The burning question in this case, is why does Steele get to resign without any other action being taken? If the allegations are true, why doesn’t he face the same charges that any other citizen would face in a situation like this?

News 4 will continue to look into this case and bring you the latest as it becomes available.

This story reminds us of this story about the dysfunctional Carson City Courts, Sheriff and Alternative Sentencing Departments infighting and perhaps setup of Mr Lewis.

Officer Lewis was found NOT Guilty of 22 counts.

Carson City probation officer charged with using position to get women to undress :: The Republic

Last Updated: March 19, 2011

CARSON CITY, Nev. — A probation officer has been charged with using his position and the threat of jail to get women to undress and to inappropriately touch them.

The 22-count complaint was filed Friday against Aaron Lewis by the Nevada attorney general’s office, the Nevada Appeal of Carson City and Reno Gazette-Journal reported. The 35-year-old is accused of getting women to undress and touching their private parts either under the threat of arrest or a promise to keep their violations to himself.

The Carson City Justice Court complaint charged him with misconduct of a public officer, coercion using physical force, open or gross lewdness, and oppression under color of office.

The claims stem from six alleged victims — all but one under his supervision — during incidents that occurred at their homes, the courthouse or his official vehicle.

Lewis told The Associated Press on Saturday that he couldn’t comment on the charges. He referred queries to his attorney, Larry Digesti, who did not immediately return a call.

Most of the young women were being supervised for drug convictions, and had told family about incidents that allegedly occurred between May and September, according to an arrest affidavit.

Lewis began working for the Carson City Department of Alternative Sentencing in April 2009. He previously worked for the Nevada Department of Corrections and as a Lyon County sheriff’s deputy.

I am writing this judicial ethics compliant against the very, very corrupt and impaired Justice of the Peace (“JP”) John Tatro of the Carson City Justice Court. “JP Tatro is not a well man.” Says my lawyer William Routsis recalling an episode of JP Tatro yelling, frothing at the mouth and lunging over the bench at Mr. Routsis. The incident was caught on the court audio/video. JP Taro has a long history of judicial complaints and violations of the Judicial Code of Conduct (“NCJC”) including a similar complaint in 2006 against JP Tatro by activist Tonja Brown. Ms. Brown and I are both ANTI Corruption activists in Carson City, NV and have protested against the Carson City courthouse. Both of us have had negative experiences with courthouse Department of Alternative Sentencing (“DAS”) $$ A FOR PROFIT ENTERPRISE $$  The DAS is also known as the (“KGB”). Ms. Brown was abused and arrested by the DAS for alleged “trespassing” into the courthouse to refresh herself! The courthouse is a public building.

Both Ms. Brown and I have protested and filed complaints against JP Tatro for his flagrant disregard for the law, the constitution and the NCJC as well as using DAS and the Justin Brothers Bail Bondsmen and their “Bounty Hunters” to illegally cross the State line into So. Lake Tahoe, CA and acting in concert with DAS and JP Tatro to act under the color of law and “serve a warrant” for the Carson City, Nevada, Justice Court JP John Tatro and his DAS – illegally and with callous and total disregard for the law and my rights and the rights of others in the State of California.

Sarnowski has been in his present post for 11 years and said he doesn’t know what he will do after leaving state government June 30, 2013. His retirement was disclosed at a meeting of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee on Friday.

The commission will select a replacement for the job, which pays $137,145 a year.

Look for new complaints against Judge Tatro to be filed and shown here ASAP. We see “Judge” Tatro abusing his “authority” by acting under the color of law and  committing “crimes against humanity and public decency”.

Why in the world does the Nevada Supreme Court allow these so called “judges” (Tatro has no law degree) to act in this manner when they are trying to convince taxpayers to support a new Intermediate Appeals Court in Nevada?

Nevada ranks low on prevention of legislative corruption, according to a new study. The state’s grades include a D in public access to information and a D- in state budget process.

The study was produced by the Center for Public Integrity, Public Radio International and Global Integrity. “The State Integrity Investigation is a $1.5 million public collaboration designed to expose practices that undermine trust in state capitols — and spotlight the states that are doing things right,” according to the study’s website.

The list:You can see how all the states did here.

Nevada government is permeated with a culture of corruption. Members of the state legislature meet for only 4 months every other year. This does not permit anything close to proper administration of the public affairs of Nevada’s 2.7-million residents.  Members of the upcoming 2013 legislative session are asked to answer tough-but-fair questions which might force changes for the better.

With so much corruption in Las Vegas Nevada, we want to include as much news about these scandals too.  Bill Windsor filmed parts of Lawless America the movie in the city of Las Vegas recently and the Las Vegas Tribune was kind enough to write a story.  It seems like every day we read about police misconduct a Las Vegas SWAT mission gone wrong (see real news report) and  corruption in the Sin City news.

I-Team: Nevada District Court Judge Valorie Vega Facing Misconduct Counts

Las Vegas thrives in corruption like the rest of Nevada, but only bigger and grander just like their casinos. They have their own style of corruption down there that includes firefighter, police and HOA corruption running rampant in addition to the usual Nevada Government corruption and Nevada Judicial corruption.

We found a new website to expose corruption called http://www.noethics.net and they did a story on Judge Valorie Vega too along with 8newsnow. For more on this sage, go to the corrupt Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline website.

There is even a Linkedin website for Las Vegas Judicial Corruption

1 Judge George Assad of Las Vegas an Il Duce Wannabee and ethically insolvent
2 Judge Nicholas Del Vecchio of Las Vegas; loathsome pervert, celebrated moron
3 Judge Elizabeth Halverson of Las Vegas a moron and an ethical gremlin
4 Judge Kevin Higgins of Sparks, NV; lifetime porker, congenital liar
5 Las Vegas Judge Steven Jones, accomplished misogynist, ethical gremlin
6 Former Judge Peter LaPorta of Henderson, NV; convict, ethically deprived
7 Senior Judge Terrence P. Marren of Las Vegas; lifetime porker, slacker
8 Judge Reese F. Melville of West Wendover, NV; Muammar Gadaffi Wannabee
9 Judge Donald M. Mosley of Las Vegas: lifetime porker and loser
10 Judge Valerie Vega of Las Vegas; arrogant slacker, loser

The Las Vegas press does an OK job at exposing the Sin City Corruption.  LV Sun always runs a good story about once a week on Las Vegas Corruption: Judge Valorie Vega says ethics charges lack merit. The local newspaper Las Vegas Sun and its editor Hank Greenspun led a crusade in the earlydays to expose all the criminal ties, activities, and government corruption in Las Vegas. His investigative reporting and editorials led to the exposure of Clark County Sheriff Glen Jones‘ ownership of a brothel and the resignation of Lieutenant Governor Clifford A. Jones as the state’s national committeeman for the Democratic Party. Before his death in 1989, Hank Greenspun founded The Greenspun Corporation to manage his family’s assets, and it remains a major influence in Las Vegas, with media holdings in print, television and the Internet; substantial real estate holdings; and ownership stakes in a number of casinos.

Highbeam.com, an online research tool conducted a recent study. Of 10 cities listed in the study, Las Vegas came in 10th.

Here’s the list of cities and the number of times the word “corruption” and a particular city appeared in media mentions over the last two years. Maybe if they rated corruption per capita Las Vegas would rank closer to #1.

1. Chicago, 3,121 2. Los Angeles, 1,412  3. Boston, 1,130 4. Washington, D.C., 946 5. New York City, 899 6. Philadelphia, 634 7. Miami, 617 8. San Francisco, 492 9. Detroit, 434 10. Las Vegas, 387

Find anyone on the street of Las Vegas and they’ll belly laugh, or run away quickly, because someone stopped them to ask the question: “Is Las Vegas corrupt?”

We’ve had bribery scandals that landed four county commissioners in federal prison; we’ve had suicides, court battles and convictions related to a years-long case involving homeowner association boards and attorneys trying to cash in on home-defect allegations.

We all “know” lobbyists and casinos run our state Legislature.

Even local firefighters have been called corrupt after county officials and an independent arbitrator pointed to firefighters’ apparent use of sick-leave to run up overtime hours. The FBI is still investigating the matter.

“Assault” charge “dismissed” against Robben in the Carson City Sheriff cover-up of NDOT hit-&-run

Good news: November 13, 2012 “Assault” charge was dropped and “dismissed” against Robben in the former NDOT Director Hit-and-Run case where Robben was actually hit and then wrongfully charged as he attempted to serve a subpoena to the evading former NDOT Director.

Carson City Sheriff Kenny Fulong COVER-UP NDOT Susan Martinovich hit and run

Nevada Appeal News covers the story:

Robben’s sentence deferred in disorderly conduct case
By Geoff Dornan gdornan@nevadaappeal.com
Ty Robben, who has been battling all levels of government since his termination from the Nevada Department of Taxation, has pleaded no contest to charges in a deal that resolves his case. In an email, Robben said his interpretation of the sequence of events is that all charges against him were dropped. Carson City Deputy District Attorney Travis Lucia, who prosecuted the case, said Robben pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct to settle charges against him. He said the deal requires Robben to comply with a variety of conditions designed to ensure good conduct and prevent harassment of other officials. Those conditions remain for a full year. “If he’s a good boy, it all goes away,” said District Attorney Neil Rombardo. “But if he keeps up the conduct he has been doing, we’re going to prosecute on anything new.” Robben was originally charged with assault after an incident in which he says he was attempting to serve a subpoena on NDOT Director Susan Martinovich to appear at a hearing involving a friend. That friend, Jim Richardson, is fighting to get his job as a state pilot back. Robben was originally charged after Martinovich asked for a restraining order, saying he followed her vehicle from NDOT to the Smith’s parking lot after she refused to see him. Martinovich wrote that, as she was getting into her  vehicle, “a man started running towards me yelling.” She said she felt threatened and drove away but that he grabbed the door handle of the vehicle and was pounding on the side of the car. After that arrest and a subsequent arrest for violating bail provisions, Robben spent several days in jail. He expanded his verbal attacks to include not only Justice of the Peace John Tatro but Sheriff Ken Furlong and District Attorney Neil Rombardo.

This NV Appeal story does cover the “differed” prosecution of the  “breach-of-peace” charge and fails to report that the main “Assault” charge was in fact “dismissed”. There was little choice with the coercion tactics and  having an extremely corrupt and bias bias judge named John Tatro in control of this sham. Robben was not going to have a fair judge handle this case and he was not going to have a jury trail as he requested. Instead the court recused Judge Tom Armstrong who may have offered a fair trail to Judge John Tatro where a definite conflict-of-interest persists.  Robben has laid down several reasons why Judge john Tatro should have been recused/disqualified from this case in court filings and in this website.

“He expanded his verbal attacks to include not only Justice of the Peace John Tatro but Sheriff Ken Furlong and District Attorney Neil Rombardo.”

We feel that the Taxpayers who pay these people deserve answers to legitimate questions about these “political” figures who are elected and are subject to public questioning, public ridicule exposing their corruption and even simple political hyperbole.

Our “opinion” is that the Carson City Sheriff under control of Ken Furlong (who also went to Carson HS with judge Tatro and  Martinovich) did cover-up the hit-and-run report and still has evaded giving the final reports to the insurance companies (as reported by the insurance company).  The  DA Neil Rombardo took the initial Sheriff report that never included  an “assault” or “breach-of-peace” charge and added these trumped up charges nearly 2-weeks after the incident where Robben was never initially charge or arrested. The time frame for the trumped up charges came after an embarrassing KRNV Fact Finder story that showed Martinovich in a bad light by evading service and the hit-and-run… Clearly the charges against Robben were trumped up retaliation by the DA who’s Deputy DA named Gerald Gardner immediately became Governor Brian Sandoval’s new Chief-of-Staff during all of this.

Judge John Tatro Carson City DUI, breathalyzer test?

As to  Carson City Justice Court JUDGE JOHN TATRO we publicly ask you to answer truthfully to that rampant speculation in Carson City and Reno that you have been ARRESTED and SPENT TIME IN JAIL in Reno for one or more  DUI (Drunk Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol) and even another incident involving DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.  Do you Judge John Tarto have to (or had to) take a BREATHALYZER TEST BEFORE GETTING ON THE BENCH? More on this controversy will be made public as other people demand answers to these questions.  We understand a public demonstration is in the works to ask these very “questions” on large banners and extra large signs to be displayed in Carson City and Reno.

We also published reasons why JP Tatro should be recused earlier on the NSPW website including the fact John Tatro’s brother Tom Tatro worked for NDOT.

LA Times – In Nevada/Las Vegas, They’re Playing With a Stacked Judicial Deck

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.

LA times - Nevada courts are a stacked deck

LA times – Nevada courts are a stacked deck

Courts – Las Vegas judiciary subject of in-depth LA Times examination

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.

|Michael J. Goodman and William C. Rempel | Times Staff Writers

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

Nevada Intermediate Court of Appeals Amendment – Why not get the lower courts right first?

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 judges are some of the highest paid in the Nation.

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

See the excellent LVRJ Story here: http://www.lvrj.com/news/judging-the-judges-nevada-high-court-justices-again-ask-for-appeals-court-136498223.html

Here are some of the reader comments:

Nevada judicial reform

Nevada judicial reform

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.

methadoneEvidence 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.

Fluoride poisoning

The lethal dose for a 70 kg (154 lb) human is estimated at 5–10 g.[7] Sodium fluoride is classed as toxic by both inhalation (of dusts or aerosols) and ingestion.[13] 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.

Judge John Tatro must recuse from Robben / Susan Martinovich case

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.

Carson City Corruption

Carson City Corruption

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.

Democide – “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.”

Democide –  “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.”

 

A new documentary from Alex Jones definitively declares war against the attempts to control the population through a fear of false dangers. The facts are in– terrorism as a mass threat is a hoax. It is government, and the elite who control it, that pose the real threat to humanity. This new film will serve as evidence to the fact that government is history’s greatest killer– with various regimes claiming more than 262,000,000 unnatural deaths in the 20th Century alone. Now, a 21st century technocratic global corporate tyranny seeks to kill not mere millions but billions– through their superweapons, central banking warfare model and eugenics mindset.

Alex turns the tables on the constant propaganda about a projected enemy. He documents proven academic research in Democide, or Death by Government, demonstrating that the real killers throughout history have always been in government. From Mao in Communist China, Stalin in the U.S.S.R., Hitler in Nazi Germany, Pol Pot under the Khmer Rouge and so many others, governments have killed more than 260 million people in just the last one hundred years.

911 Emergency call from 08/06/2012 NDOT Susan Martinovich hit-and-run incident backs up Robben

The call made immediately after the incident  is here:

This shows that Robben was there to serve legal papers, NDOT Director Susan Martinovich  hit Robben’s foot, she left the scene, and Robben did not follow her after the incident.  Robben did not require an ambulance,  he later had an x-ray on his own.

Notice at 1:23 it seems like a new lady comes on the 911 call…

We have DUI coverups for Carson City judge, beatings, cops selling meth and more.  We try to vet each story, so stay tuned a the vetting begins and the criminals behind their badges are exposed.

Carson City Sheriff and DA Neil Rombardo trump up false charges against Robben

Breaking news here on NSPW. The process server who Susan Martinovich’s SUV ran over his foot evading service of a court subpoena was arrested on August 15, 2012.  Ty Robben is charged with trumped up assault and  disturbing the peace NRS 200.010 for trying to serve NDOT Director Susan Martinovich who was evading service and ran over his foot in her effort to avoid service.   Apparently the DA Rombardo realized stalking/harassment was not going to stick, so dropped that charge and fabricated assault and disturbing the peace.  Didn’t Martinovich assault Robben with a deadly weapon called a car (SUV) when she ran over his foot? and then proceed to leave the scene?  …Then she filed a false police report. More to come shortly. The Carson City cronies really messed up on this one. Notice on the Carson City Sheriff Report  (click to see report) the original charge of Harassment is now gone and Martinovich did not want to press charges against  Robben. So who trumped up the charges? DA Neil Rombardo and his cronies. Remember Neil Rombardo was once a Senior Nevada Attorney General.  See the pattern of the people that come from the AG office?

“It is an honor for me to serve the people of Carson City and the State of Nevada as Carson City’s District Attorney.  Above all, it is important to remember that this position is a public trust bestowed upon me, and it is my duty to consider this trust in all decision making as Carson City’s District Attorney.” —Neil A. Rombardo

We ‘trust’ you’ll resign Mr. Rombardo after this costly mess as your actions against Robben have opened Pandora’s box.

Here’s the definition of assault and as you can see, this won’t stick because Robben was serving court papers and not attempting to use physical force against another person or placing Martinovich in apprehension of immediate bodily harm.  Robben never touched Martinovich or opened her car door as asserted in the false Sheriff report. Instead Martinovich assaulted Robben with her damn car. Look for a jury demand if this goes to court.

NRS 200.471  Assault: Definitions; penalties. [Effective January 1, 2012.]

1.  As used in this section:

    (a) “Assault” means:

           (1) Unlawfully attempting to use physical force against another person;

           

Susan Martinovich still has not provided insurance information to cover the x-ray costs.

New protests with new banners and signs to debut very soon.  We’re taking the protest back to the court of corruption on Musser St. Interesting JP Armstrong got into this mess in time for reelection season.

Interesting that Carson City Judge John Tatro has to blow into a breathalyzer each day before going on the bench.  This fact adds credence to the DUI cover-up involving Carson City Judge John Tatro. 

More posts coming soon to show the truth and corruption involved in this Carson City cover up.

By the way, the Sheriff fellas at the Carson City jail we’re all very nice and professional.  The food is terrible. Glad to get the bail posted and on with the personal injury lawsuit against Martinovich. I am told these charge will not stick and as more evidence comes out and people speak out, the Corrupt Carson City officials behind this scandal will be exposed.

Much more to come.  I am sure this will be all over the news, so be sure to check back.  The mug shot looks good, Robben made sure to smile for the camera.  You know this whole thing is going to backfire on the Sheriff, DA and AG because Robben has new information coming up daily and the show has just begun. The retaliation and cover-up will be assured to make national news in the days or weeks  to come.  Stay tuned as all this develops.

Protesters rallied with a 4 foot by 150 foot long “CRIME SCENE” banner!

Protesters each have their individual complaints against the Attorney General, NDOC, NHP, the Governor and Reno DA Dick Gammick.

Individual complaints include backdated court filings, withholding evidence, Brady violations, computer problems in NDOC adding false charges to inmates records and deleting “good behavior” credits. Other people complain about being harassed by NHP (pulled over 40+ times) after reporting icy road conditions.

Nevada was recently given a D- grade in transparency and is a top State in the union for CORRUPTION. Essentially a “State of Corruption”.

Protesters are planning to continue these demonstrations in the weeks and months ahead now that the weather is nice and more victimized citizens are learning about the movement.

Q- What the hell is this protest all about?

A- In 2012, Nevada received a D- grade making it one of the worst States in the union for CORRUPTION and Judicial Corruption. Local Nevada citizens in Carson City and Reno networked and joined forces using the Internet and social media and old fashion methods to create a collision.  They were inspired to protest and created the Nevada ANTI-Corruption movement. One of the fellas involved in the protest is a professional sign maker who fabricated a massive 140 foot long, 4 foot tall one-of-a-kind CRIME SCENE banner.  The banner is unique and has commanded the attention of anyone who sees it as well as local, national and world-wide media attention. The other protest signs are also large and unique targeting specific issues and general anti-corruption messages.

The Nevada ANTI-Corruption movement is working and we are having success for individual causes and bringing public attention to the Rampant Wholesale Corruption here in Nevada. We will report news and information on out main website https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com

We encourage people to watch out youtube videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/stumpjumpnty/videos

Once you become familiar with what we are doing, please contact us at Nevadawatchdog@rocketmail.com

We are starting to regularly hold demonstrations in Carson City Nevada at the State Capital in front of the Attorney Generals office which is directly across from the Governor’s office on the main street and Musser St.

We will also hold demonstrations at other locations such as the Reno AG office, area courts (Reno, Carson, other) and pinpoint protests at Nevada Department of Taxation offices in Nevada and other State agencies as required. We may expand protests to Las Vegas and bring the CRIME SCENE banner to rural areas of Nevada too. All this brings attention to the judicial corruption happening in Nevada and the rest of the country.

As of July 2012, the State of Nevada via Reno/Washoe District Attorney Dick Gammick now admits the Nevada Highway Patrol dash-cam audio/video was in fact edited as Mike Weston has been complaining about. However, they claim it is not misconduct or fraud. The State missed its filing deadline and filed a late answer that basically concedes to Mike Weston’s requested relief of vacating the conviction, expunging his record and reimbursement of fines, fees, costs, etc.

A decision is expected soon by the Reno Justice Court Judge Patricia Lynch.  Mike has also requested the court to report DA Dick Gammick to the “appropriate authorities” for the fraud and Brady Disclosure ( See Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963) violations of evidence tampering to withholding exculpatory evidence 

The Supreme Court held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process “where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment”; and the court determined that under Maryland state law the withheld evidence could not have exculpated the defendant but was material to the level of punishment he would be given. Hence the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling was affirmed.

Deleting portions of a video and leaving a time stamp to reflect such was done is not misconduct, let alone fraud.” (Emphasis added).

[t]he State would not oppose the sealing of defendant’s record. Thus, if the relief granted is limited to that requested by the defendant, namely vacating his conviction and retuning fines and fees paid by the defendant without findings of fact or conclusions of law, the State would not oppose such relief.” (Emphasis added).

Nevada Highway Patrol corruption, evidence tampering & retaliation – The Mike Weston story

 

 

For more information see http://NevadaLicensedCriminals.com 
On June 19, 2005, Weston was run off Interstate 80 near the Keystone exit in Reno by two vehicles traveling at extremely high speed. When he returned to the road, he soon came upon a Nevada Highway Patrol cruiser on the shoulder of the highway. Its driver, Officer Edward Bowers, had stopped a large pickup truck and was in process of issuing a citation to the truck’s driver.

Weston stopped his car behind the trooper’s cruiser.

After waiting at least three minutes to observe the officer’s situation and to determine that the officer was not engaged in a threatening scenario, Weston approached Bowers to report that he had just been run off the road by two reckless drivers who posed a clear and present danger to other vehicles. Significant dialogue discussed during this exchange is not included in an audio-video tape as played during Weston’s trial; this proves that evidence was altered to undermine truth. The tape was shot by a camera onboard the NHP cruiser. 

Moments later, Bowers recognized Weston as a person who had previously criticized him. Bowers’ focus shifted to Weston being a critic and he, Bowers, indicated no concern with Weston’s close avoidance of what might have been a fatal accident ~ nor with the clear and present danger to other vehicles posed by the two speeding vehicles Weston reported to him.

Without issuing a warning to Weston, as mandated by law, Bowers issued a citation to Weston for “obstructing and delaying a peace officer”. The audio-video tape mentioned above proves that Bowers did not issue a warning as required by law. Weston was fully cooperative with Bowers; the tape documents this.

On August 19, 2005, Weston found himself in a kangaroo court with “Judge” Fidel Salcedo presiding. During this scenario Weston was victimized by editing of the audio-video tape, complete with a doctored timestamp, and by Officer Bowers lying under oath (perjury).
