  • Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral Seeks to Inappropriately Silence YR as Applied to Nefarious Tom Girardi and Lackey Joe Dunn

    Dear Mr. Dunn and to whom it may concern:

    This will serve to address the following:

    1. Attached below for your reference is a courtesy PDF copy of a summons and civil complaint filed against your publication VOICE OF OC in Yolo County Superior Court.

    Please note that as an act of good faith and in order to protect the brand ‘State Bar of California’ and the reputation of the judicial system, I tried as much as possible to keep executives and directors of the California Bar out of the suit.

    Nevertheless, as you know very well, strong circumstantial evidence provides that the California Democratic Party took advantage of California’s Energy Crisis to enrich itself in lieu of prosecutions, and that the chosen forum to engage in various financial machinations has been the California Bar Foundation and related entities.

    This is the reason many utility lawyers, CPUC executives and operatives were appointed as members of the BOG and as directors of the California Bar Foundation, to wit: CPUC Commissioner Geoffrey Brown, CPUC Chief Legal Counsel Peter Arth, Gwen Moore of GeM Communications, George Davis of Davis Broadband (and secretly of AARP), Jeannine English (of AARP and lobbyist for Ross Perot Energy System), Dennis Mangers (on behalf of energy senator Darrell Steinberg, Kip Lipper, and Lipper’s sister Donna Lucas of Venoco Energy), Jeff Bleich and Bradley Phillips (on behalf of Southern California Edison, Verizon) , Douglas Winthrop of Howard Rice / Arnold & Porter (on behalf of PG&E), Annette Carnegie (on behalf of El Paso Energy), Howard Miller (on behalf of Girardi & Keese), and Nancy Fineman (on behalf of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy).

    As you also know very well, clear and convincing circumstantial evidence provide that you, Martha Escutia , Tom Girardi and James Brosnahan launched VOICE OF OC with funds misappropriated (through the ad-hoc sham non profit CaliforniaALL) from the California Bar Foundation and in consideration for malfeasance by you and Martha Escutia stemming from California’s Energy Crisis by utility lawyers who were part of the California Bar Foundation/BOG such as Jeff Bleich (on behalf of Southern California Edison), James Brosnahan/Annette Carnegie (on behalf of El Paso Energy), Douglas Winthrop (on behalf of PG&E), non-lawyer/lobbyist Jeannine English (on behalf of Ross Perot System), and Thomas Girardi (on behalf of class-action lawyers who were prosecuting related litigation such as Pierce O’Donnell and Joe Cotchett in matters such as Continental Forge, El Paso, and SWEETIE’S).

    As you also know very well, in order to justify the existence of CaliforniaALL, you, Erwin Chemerinsky, Karina Hamilton, husband Robert Hamilton, and CaliforniaALL misled the public by various fraudulent means into believing CaliforniaALL was responsible for the launching of the Saturday Law Academy at UC Irvine (‘SALUCI’) in 2008, whereas SALUCI was actually launched in 2005.

    Later, as you also by now know very well , CaliforniaALL was also misused by various Obama for America actors (Jeff Bleich, James Brosnahan , Tony West, Kamala Harris, Laura Chick, and CHRIS YOUNG) as well as by the election campaign of Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson by Jeannine English, Mark Friedman, and CHRIS YOUNG.

    Michael Cabral aka Mike Cabral of Yolo County District Attorney
    Cabral: ‘that’s the situation’ (image: courtesy photo)

    2. This will serve to confirm and to place you and members of the BOG on notice of the fact that Yolo County Assistant District Attorney Michael Cabral has stated on multiple occasions to me and to on separate occasions to various attorneys words to the effect of, ‘The State Bar of California doesn’t really want you criminally prosecuted, they just want you to go away’. On a separate occasion he stated that he wants me prosecuted and to have ‘State Prison’ “hanging over my head” if I do not fulfill conditions of probation which will include not suing, complaining, or blogging against various wrongdoers. When I stated to him that this is an attempt to shut me up through misuse of the justice system and that it has no relations to any crime I committed, he stated ‘that’s the situation.’

    Michael Cabral has already stated to me, and later through my insistence to my attorney, that he ‘never’ spoke to Jeannine English, that he spoke ‘only once’ to Tom Layton, and that he only communicates with representatives from the State Bar of California.

    Mr. Cabral’s latest laughable and highly unethical offer, conveyed to me by my attorney, and which I caused to be placed on the court record, is that ‘if I want a misdemeanor’ I have to agree to a ‘stay away order’ not only against Jeannine English and Howard Dickstein, but also against all the people named in the search warrant, such as you, Tom Girardi, Holly Fujie, and others. When I inquired why would I have to agree to a ‘stay away’ from you and Girardi, for example, I was told it was a ‘special’ stay away order which would include conditions that for the next three years I have to agree to NOT FILE COMPLAINTS, ‘NOT SUE’ and ‘NOT BLOG’ about any of those mentioned in the search warrant and if I either file complaints, lawsuits or blog about those individuals, it would be considered a ‘probation violation.’

    3. This will serve to inform the State Bar of California Board of Trustees of the fact that I only recently discovered that former member George Davis has been secretly part of the AARP while concurrently serving as public member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors (‘BOG’). As you know, on June 12, 2011 I filed a complaint with the entire State Bar of California Board of Governors against then BOG member Jeannine English of AARP stemming from her conflicts of interest, self-dealing, breach of fiduciary duties, and failure to discloses a $900,000 Cy Pres award to AARP courtesy of Tom Girardi and Girardi & Keese during the time period the BOG was investigating my allegations dealing with the matter of In Re Girardi. As you know, the entire BOG took jurisdiction over of my complaint dealing with the matter of In Re Girardi, and once I discovered that the State Bar of California appointed Girardi’s own personal malpractice attorney (Jerome Falk of Howard Rice) as ‘special prosecutor’, the BOG ceased all communications with me.

    4. If not a bother, will it be possible for you to please make certain State Bar of California employee Teri Greenman respond to my request for documents previously submitted.

  • Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Reed -- Odd Odd Fellow, Spouse of Sheryl Cambron -- Caught Misstating Facts Under Penalty of Perjury

    Yolo County Superior Court Judge and Davis Odd Fellows President / Director David Reed. Subsequent to allegation made by Yolo County-based Rabbi that David Rosenberg, Lea Rosenberg, and David Reed may have misused Davis Odd Fellows (and related charities) to launder money in order to bribe Barbara Sommer of Progress Ranch on behalf of Cache Creek Casino, in pleadings dated June 21, 2013 David Reed falsely declared under penalty of perjury that "DAVIS ODD FELLOWS HAVE NEVER MADE CONTRIBUTIONS OR PARTICIPATED IN FUND-RAISING FOR PROGRESS RANCH".

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

    On December 29, 2010, The Davis Enterprise reported:

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

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

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

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

    PROGRESS RANCH SAYS THANKS ALSO IN 2011

    On November 9, 2011 The Davis Enterprise published the following:

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

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

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

    Separately, on March 9, 2012 The Davis Enterprise reported the following from Russell Kusama of Progress Ranch:

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

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

  • Dentons' Rod Pacheco Under Scrutiny In Re Cache Creek Casino / Michael Cabral / Marcia Kobler

    A year long multi-prong inquiry has yielded the identities of Dentons (formerly Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal) partner Rod Pacheco as potential actor in the ongoing saga of harassment of Yolo County-based Rabbi ("YR").

    According to knowledgeable sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, around the early part of 2011 -- during the time period YR managed to expose corruption in connection with the matters of In Re Girardi, Fogel vs. Farmers, CaliforniaALL / Obama for America / Kevin Johnson, and Voice of OC -- a scheme was devised to do whatever it takes to shut him up, and to otherwise discredit him, in which Pacheco may have played a critical role.

    Rod Pacheco Michael Cabral aka Mike Cabral of Yolo County District Attorney
    Former Riverside County District Attorney Rodric Anthony Pacheco (AKA Rod Pacheco) (left) and lackey -- former Riverside County Assistant District Attorney Michael Cabral (right).During his troubled tenure as Riverside County DA, Pacheco stated "any prosecutor can convict the guilty, but it takes a great prosecutor to convict the innocent."

    Some of those who sought to discredit YR were politicians associated with California's Democratic Party / CaliforniaALL (Kamala Harris, Jerry Brown, Geoffrey Brown, Joe Dunn, Martha Escutia, and Darrel Steinberg), law firms (Munger Tolles & Olson, Morrison & Foerster, Skadden Arps, DLA Piper, Keker & Van Nest, Sonnenschein /Dentons, Girardi & Keese), businesses (AARP, Cache Creek Casino, Accenture, Berkshire Hathaway), utility companies (PG&E, Southern California Edison, Verizon), and private operatives such as Freada Kapor Klein, Mitch Kapor, and Mark Friedman.

    As such, a scheme was devised by which California Democratic Party "Enforcer" -- Boyd Gaming's Tom Girardi -- would take whatever measure necessary to "deal" with YR.

    Girardi, in conjunction with Tom Layton, quickly approached Rod Pacheco -- who was just been ousted as the Riverside County District Attorney -- to arrange for Pacheco to be hired by Dentons -- attorneys for Cache Creek Casino and other Indian gaming outfits where Girardi has financial interests.

    Pacheco and Cabral are also under scrutiny as potential actors in a scheme to discredit The Leslie Brodie Report. Presently, an examination is underway as to whether Pacheco and Cabral posed as "Leslie Brodie" in manufacturing a complaint against Jeannine English to the California's Board of Accountancy . Of course, neither YR nor The Leslie Brodie Report ever complained against English to the Board of Accountancy.

    UPDATE:

    According to YR, "several days ago, I was furnished with leads which suggested possible improper ties between Rod Pacheco and Michael Cabral.

    Those leads were in connection with Dentons - Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal and client Cache Creek Casino , Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, Chairman Marshall McKay, and current business partner Mark Friedman of Fulcrum Property; Margaret Cabral of Murrieta, California; Marcia Kobler of Cache Creek Casino (sister of Jeannine English ; sister-in-law of Howard Dickstein); Rod Pacheco and Michael Cabral.

    After several days of research, and after obtaining further information from Riverside and Yolo County, I have now come to the conclusion that these leads were correct, but that nothing improper took place.

    Obviously, while Pacheco and Cabral were both associated with the Riverside County District Attorney’s office, after thorough research, I could not find any evidence to suggest any improper ties, especially not in connection with Cabral’s employment at Yolo County.

  • Graduate of Sacramento's Lincoln Law School Mired in Fraud

    The State Bar of California -- the regulatory agency for California's lawyers -- is set to investigate attorney Sheryl Ann Cambron -- who is presently married to Yolo County Superior Court judge David Reed.

    According to a complaint submitted to the bar, Sheryl Cambron engaged in gross acts of misconduct involving fraud, misrepresentation, deceit, and deceiving the public in areas dealing with her place of employment and her relationship to her husband -- Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Reed -- so as to allow litigants the opportunity to seek disqualification of her husband (through either peremptory or for cause challenges).

    The complaint alleges that Cambron is a 1999 graduate of Lincoln Law School in Sacramento. She is currently employed as an attorney by the County of Yolo, and is highly involved with entities known as Davis Odd Fellows/Davis Rebekah Lodge, which are located in Yolo County in the city of Davis.

    Sheryl Cambron of Yolo County Counsel / Davis Rebekah Lodge / Spouse of of Yolo County Superior Cour
    Cambron (image: courtesy photo)

    Ms. Cambron is married to her former law partner David Reed ("Reed"), who presently served as a judge with the Yolo County Superior Court.

    Reed and Cambron, together with Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Rosenberg (and his wife Lea Rosenberg), have been extensively involved with Davis Odd Fellows for many years, while in the process committing income tax fraud in order to mislead the IRS and the public, conspiring to refuse a request to share with me their IRS returns as mandated by IRS rules and regulations, as well as accepting donations from suspect entities such as Yocha Dehe Wintun Nations -- the native American tribe which owns and operates Cache Creek Casino. (See http://davislodge.org/breakfast-with-santa-delivers-lots-of-fun/ )

    Most, if not all, of the financial proceeds of David Odd Fellows goes to support "Emancipated Foster Youth," in part, through a separate non-profit entity headed by David Rosenberg and his Judicial Campaign CPA, Victor Bucher (aka Vic Bucher).

    MISCONDUCT BY CAMBRON:

    I. Fraud and deceit in connection with Cambron's marital and employment status.

    Any member of the public who researches the background of Judge David Reed will be hard pressed to ascertain that he is married to Cheryl Cambron. For example, in the tens of articles published by Davis Odd Fellows/Davis Rebekah Lodge (or about the activities of Davis Odd Fellows by outside publications such as the Davis Enterprise), the fact that Reed and Cambron are actually married to each other is not mentioned.

    Moreover, even in official returns submitted to the IRS during the time David Reed and Sheryl Cambron served concurrently as president and Treasurer of Davis Odd Fellows, a representation was made that they are not married to each other. (See attached Exhibit 1 -- 2010 IRS Form 990: ‘Did any officer, director, trustee, or key employee have a family relationship or a business relationship with any other officer, director, trustee, or key employee?’ The form submitted by Davis Odd Fellows states, ‘NO.’) Since two of the officers (Reed and Cambron) were actually married to each other, this is a misrepresentation to the IRS.

    The misconduct by Reed/Cambron did not end by just misleading the IRS and the public through the filing of inaccurate tax returns and the hiding from the public that they are married to each other. It appears that Cambron and Reed may have also conspired with each other to mislead the public as to the fact that Ms. Cambron is employed as an attorney by the County of Yolo.
    Indeed, it took the undersigned months of research into the background of Judge David Rosenberg to ascertain the extensive involvement of Judge Rosenberg (and his wife Lea Rosenberg) with various non-profit entities, which then led to Judge David Reed, which then led to Cambron, which ultimately led to the facts that Cambron is the wife of Reed, and is otherwise employed as an attorney by Yolo County.

    Despite the fact that Ms. Cambron is employed by the Yolo County, legal web-sites misrepresent her employment status. Most, if not all, of those web-sites state that Sheryl Cambron is in fact in private practice representing litigants in matter dealing with bankruptcies, family law, and criminal law.
    For example:

    http://www.justia.com/lawyers/criminal-law/california/woodland

    The above examples, attached as exhibits, are part of a scheme devised by the Reed and Cambron to mislead the public into believing that Cambron is in private practice, and not an employee of Yolo County, which then affords Judge Reed the opportunity to rule against litigants in matters dealing with, for example, unlawful searches and seizures, ipso facto absolving the county from civil liability while at the same time not disclosing the existence of a conflict of interest based on his wife's employment with the County.

  • Yolo County Superior Court Judges David Reed and David Rosenberg in Hot Water Over Alleged Discrimination Based on Religion

    The California Commission on Judicial Performance -- the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity and for disciplining judges -- is set to investigate Yolo County Superior Court judges David Rosenberg and David Reed.

    Pursuant to a complaint submitted by YR, Yolo County Superior Court judge David Rosenberg (AKA Dave Rosenberg) and his wife Lea Rosenberg are heavily involved in an entity known as "Yolo Lodge 169 Independent Order Odd Fellows and Davis Rebekah Lodge" ( which also advertises itself as Davis Odd Fellow / David Rebekah Lodge/ and other related entities).

    The operation owns various pieces of real estate which are leased to various business establishments in the City of Davis, California.

    As will be shown in future complaints, there is more than meets the eye here, as overall transactions involving Davis Odd Fellows appear to involve suspicious and secretive financial transactions, racketeering, income tax fraud, and related acts of misconduct.

    Over the years, both the Rosenbergs (David and Lea) and Judge Reed and his wife (Cheryl Cambron - an attorney employed by Yolo County) have been extensively involved in this organization. At various times, Rosenberg/Reed/Cambron served as president and vice-president interchangeably.

    Presently, Dave Rosenberg is also the membership committee chairman (see: http://davislodge.org/how-to-join/ ).

    Anyone who is interested in becoming a member must be sponsored by another member and must be "loyal to his or her country and believes in a Supreme Being, the creator and preserver of the Universe, is eligible for membership." (See http://davislodge.org/how-to-join/ )

    Additionally, the Odd Fellows Valediction reads as follows: "I AM AN ODD FELLOW: I believe in the Fatherhood of God, and the Brotherhood of Man." (See: http://davislodge.org/odd-fellows-valediction/)

    MISCONDUCT:
    As mentioned above, both Judge Rosenberg and Judge Reed are judges of the Yolo County Superior Court and both are members and directors of Davis Odd Fellows. As such they must adhere to the canons of judicial ethics.

    Canon 2(C) reads: "A judge shall not hold membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender, religion, national origin, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. This canon does not apply to membership in a religious organization or an official military organization of the United States."

    The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) in general, and the Davis Odd Fellows in particular, are not "religious organization" per se (ie, churches). Rather they are considered a fraternity. (See: http://www.ioof.org/ )

    Davis Odd Fellows describes itself as follows:
    "The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge was chartered in 1870 and currently has over 200 members, making it one of the largest Odd Fellows Lodges in the nation. The Odd Fellows Lodge is a fraternal order, dedicated to community projects of all kinds. The Davis Odd Fellows put on Taste of Davis, Breakfast with Santa, Breakfast with the Bunny among other community events and projects. The Lodge also hosted the “DogtoberFest” which raised funds to purchase a new K-9 for the Davis Police Department, and set a Guinness World Record for the longest single line of bicycles which raising over $15,000 for the Davis Schools during the “World’s Greatest Bicycle Parade.”

    In that David Odd Fellows owns real estate which it rents to the highest bidder, it qualifies as a "business establishment" which must comply with statutory and constructional bodies of California law protecting the civil rights of its citizens.

  • DEFIANT OLSON APPOINTS LUIS LI AND RE-APPOINTS ALAN FRIEDMAN TO BOARD OF BET TZEDEK AMID TURMOIL

    There is a shocking new development subsequent to a published story on The Leslie Brodie Report dealing with the abrupt departure of Munger Tolles & Olson partner Alan Friedman from Bet Tzedek under the cloud of controversy dealing with an alleged misappropriation of money from the State Bar of California's Legal Trust Fund. Oddly enough, Alan Friedman is back at Bet Tzedek.

    According to knowledgeable sources, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation, Friedman has returned to Bet Tzedek pursuant to instructions from named partner Ron Olson, who seeks to use "reverse psychology".

    Per the sources, Olson is under the impression that re-positioning Friedman back at Bet Tzedek will serve to negate accusations that Friedman left the organization with a cloud hanging over his head, and sends the message of "business as usual."

    To further create the false impression that nothing unusual had taken place at Bet Tzedek, a somewhat defiant Ron Olson also ordered the appointment of yet another Munger Tolles partner (Luis Li) to the board of Bet Tzedek.

    Bet Tzedek Board of Directors

  • Report Identified Judge David Rosenberg in Alleged Misappropriation of Money From State Bar of California's Legal Trust Fund

    Staff-members of The Leslie Brodie Report have learned that Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Rosenberg -- who is also a member of the Judicial Council of California -- has been identified in a report as an actor who participated in a scheme to misuse money obtained from the State Bar of California's Legal Trust Fund -- a multi million dollar account which accumulates interest from proceeds of settlement checks and judgments deposited into lawyers' trust accounts.

    Under normal circumstances, interest accumulated is designated by statute to finance "pro bono" legal services.

    However, a network of Jewish lawyers -- mainly descendents of Holocaust survivors-- headed by former State Bar of California president Alan Rothenberg while aided by former Chief Justice Ronald George and his son Eric George -- are alleged to have devised a sophisticated scheme by which inflated sums of money would be improperly funneled to a Los Angeles-based non profit entity known as Bet Tzedek of Los Angeles.

    It is further alleged that said money would later be misappropriated and laundered to Europe through a bank owned by Alan Rothenberg and Eric George (1st. Century Bank) through the auspices of financial support of litigation designed to recover arts stolen from Jews during the Second World War.

    In order to execute the scheme, the report alleges that during his service as Chief Justice, Ronald George arranged for dubious characters to be part of the State Bar Legal Services Trust Fund Commission. Specifically, the former Executive Director of Bet Tzedek David Lash, as well as shockingly , Bonnie Robin -- vice president of 1st. Century Bank ,which as was mentioned above is owned by Alan Rothenberg and Eric George.

    Other dubious characters alleged to have been involved were Todd Tor, an employee of the Judicial Council and expert in Banking Fraud who "telecommuted" to his work in San Francisco from Switzerland; Bet Tzedek Director David Pasternak, who also concurrently serves on the State Bar of California Board of Trustees; and former Bet Tzedek Directors who also served as members of the State Bar of California Board of Trustees, Holly Fujie and Rex Heinke.

    Other tactics allegedly used to achieve the objective was to appoint "sympathizers" to the Judicial Council of California, the entity which supervises the State Bar Legal Services Trust Fund Commission, as well as to use the services of David Pasternak as Receiver and that of Tom Layton for intimidation.

    For example, the report alludes to an allegation that "Receiver" David Pasternak allegedly sells property to family or acquaintances of Judicial Council members for "pennies on the dollar."

    Finally, the report identified Judicial Council members Mark Robinson and embattled Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Rosenberg -- who himself is somewhat of an expert in the area of Holocaust Litigation -- as alleged aiders and abbeters to the financial scheme through their willingness to cover up the misconduct and to not point out obvious conflicts of interest (such as the dual role of David Lash of O'Melveny, for example) on the other.

    Of note, with a cloud hanging over their heads, Bet Tzedek directors Alan Friedman (of Munger Tolles) , Holly Fujie (of Buchalter Nemer) , Rex Heinke (of Akin Gump), and Eric George recently abruptly resigned from the board of Bet Tzedek.

  • SCOUNDLER RE-JOINS MUNGER TOLLES

    Beleaguered OBAMA FOR AMERICA operative Jeffrey Bleich has re-joined Los Angeles-based litigation boutique Munger Tolles & Olson, according to announcement issued by the firm.

    “Jeff is a leadership lawyer whose strategic vision will add value for our clients and whose community commitment will continue to advance our state and country. We are delighted to welcome him home and back to our firm," named partner Ronald L. Olson -- who is also a director of Southern California Edison and Berkshire Hathaway -- stated.

    In recent years, Bleich has been the subject of intense scrutiny in connection with the non-profit known as CaliforniaALL, which allegedly served as a vehicle to misappropriate approximately $780,000 from the California Bar Foundation to benefit OBAMA FOR AMERICA, as well as to bribe governmental officials in California responsible for overseeing utility companies during California's energy crisis such as Geoffrey Brown, Joe Dunn, Tim Simon and Michael Peevey on behalf of clients Southern California Edison and Verizon.

    Bleich also remains under scrutiny in connection with a scheme executed by client Verizon Communication, Two-Faced-Fraudster Barbara O'Connor of AARP/Lucas Public Affairs, and Brenda Kempster to launder money which would be used to finance a lavish party during the inauguration of Barrack Obama.

    Jeffrey Bleich was also mentioned in a report which implicated another Munger Tolles & Olson partner in a separate scheme involving the former Chief Justice of California Ronald George and his son Eric George. Both Eric George and Alan Friedman recently and abruptly resigned from their positions with Bet Tzedek, where they had previously served as directors.

    Previously, Bleich has been the subject of harsh criticism from Met News publisher Roger Grace. This article can be found HERE.

  • From Alan Rothenberg to Alan Friedman of Munger Tolles

    Los Angeles-based Munger Tolles partner Alan Friedman has been identified in a report as an actor who participated in a scheme to misuse "free money" obtained from the State Bar of California's Legal Trust Fund -- a multi million dollar account which accumulates interest from proceeds of settlement checks and judgments deposited into lawyers' trust accounts.

    Under normal circumstances, interest accumulated is designated by statute to finance "pro bono" legal services.

    However, a network of Jewish lawyers headed by former State Bar of California president Alan Rothenberg while aided by the former Chief Justice Ronald George and his son Eric George are alleged to have devised a sophisticated scheme by which inflated sums of money would be improperly funneled to a Los Angeles-based non profit entity known as Bet Tzedek of Los Angeles. Said money would later be embezzled.

    Also mentioned in the report was another Munger Tolles partner who allegedly knew of the scheme -- Mr. Jeffrey Bleich -- who also served as a member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors as well as the president of the Bar.

    Of note, with a cloud hanging over his head, Alan Friedman recently abruptly resigned from the board of Bet Tzedek.

  • Investigation Nabs Munger Tolles Partner Bart Williams

    Following a month-long journalistic investigation by staff-members of The Leslie Brodie Report surrounding suspicions of questionable hiring criteria at Los Angeles-based litigation boutique Munger Tolles & Olson, hiring partner Bart Williams has been identified as one potential culprit.

    The Leslie Brodie Report began investigating Williams in September after it was discovered that the firm appears to employ a large number of young and attractive white female attorneys.

    This discovery raises the question of whether the age, gender, and beauty of these applicants was considered during the decision making process, leading Williams to hire them over more qualified applicants.

    The Leslie Brodie Report will continue to keep readers updated on this matter as developments warrant.

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

    To whom it may concern:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    “Dear Ms. Rosenberg:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • OY VEY... Lea Rosenberg on Yolo County-based Rabbi: "He is at it again." YR: "Trying to pillory me" -- Update # 4 to Yolo County Superior Court Judicial Scandal

    Latest communication from YR to Lea Rosenberg, which speaks for itself, below:

    Dear Ms. Rosenberg:

    Thank you for the prompt response to my email dated September 26, 2013.

    From the unprofessional and uncalled for tone of your email ( consisting only of one line, "so he is at it again”), it is not clear whether this message was actually intended for me or sent to me in error.

    Your unprofessional reply casts doubt on whether you plan to comply with the request to produce the IRS Forms 990 for Davis Odd Fellow and related entities, or whether you are just trying to pillory me in the eyes of David Odd Fellow members (such as your husband David Rosenberg, your husband's judicial campaign CPA Vic Bucher, Judge Dave Reed and his wife Cheryl Camberon, Jonathan Raven, Michael Cabral and others).

    As such, I must ask you to clarify your position; and if your email was sent to anyone else, please disclose the identities of all the recipients ASAP.

    Thanks again for your time and anticipated prompt cooperation.

  • AARP's Jeannine English - State Bar of California BOG Member - Embroiled in Second Controversy Involving African-American Man: Three-Card-Monte #2

    kvn 3cm
    Three-Card-Monte #1: John Keker, Elliot Peters, Jan Little, Matt Werdegar, Jon Streeter, Chris Young.  Hoping to conceal the identity and past actions of Chris Young , Keker & Van Nest removed Chris Young's attorney profile from its website.  Only after YR managed to unearth Young's identity and only after YR filed an ethics complaint against John Keker, Jon Streeter, and Chris Young in connection with the attempt to defraud the public by concealing Young's association with Keker & Van Nest, Young's attorney profile has been restored to the firm's site. See story HERE

    THREE-CARD-MONTE #2

    A new day and a new scandal has erupted involving the former public member of State Bar of California Board of Governors -- Jeannine Dickstein (aka Jeannine English and/or Jeannine English-Dickstein), the wife of attorney Howard Dickstein.

    The rapidly expanding multi-prong civil inquiry, conducted by TLR's confederate -- Yolo County's YR  -- focuses on  George Davis,  who until recently served alongside English-Dickstein as a "Public Member" of California's State Bar Board of Governors.

    AARP's George Davis and AARP's Jeannine English
    Davis and English-Dickstein (image: courtesy photo)

    Until recently, Davis, the owner of Davis Broadband Group -- a Culver City-based dubious communication consulting firm -- has been viewed as only a minor player among the bevy of diverse individuals who infiltrated the State Bar of California as part of an ongoing trend by racial minorities of squeezing money from utility companies who capitulate rather than having to fully comply with "hiring quotas" of minorities mandated by CPUC General Order 156 (two other notable players are BOG member Gwen Moore and former executive director Judy Johnson, who secretly served  as the president of California Consumer Protection Foundation.  Of note, both Moore and Johnson are Black).

    GEORGE DAVIS' SECRET ROLE AT AARP

    However, in an extremely shocking turn of events, it has  recently been revealed that George Davis has been secretly serving as part of AARP's California Board of Directors (alongside English-Dickstein), and that he was recently elected as President of California AARP, despite the fact that he is completely and utterly unqualified for such a position.

    According to knowledgeable sources, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation, the relevancy of the findings relate to the fact that George Davis never disclosed his association with the AARP and English-Dickstein.


    AARP Operatives Jeannine English, George Davis, and two-faced-fraudster Barbara O'Connor of Lucas Public Affairs

    Significantly, this fact was not disclosed even when a Yolo County-based Rabbi filed a complaint against English-Dickstein with the State Bar of California Board of Governors alleging improprieties involving the AARP, Jeannine English, and a $900.000 cy pres award arranged by Thomas Girardi of Girardi & Keese to California AARP in order to curry favor with English-Dickstein to avoid sanctions by the State Bar for his grave misconduct (described in the Ninth Circuit decision of In Re Girardi).

    While speculation abounds, it is suspected that Davis is being controlled from behind the scenes by lobbyist William Hauck (of Blue Cross)  and Donna Lucas (of Porter Novelli/ Lucas Public Affairs.)  As reminder, Bill Novelli of Porter Novelli served as the AARP's national president for many years.

    UNDISCLOSED GIFT TO JON STREETER OF KEKER & VAN NEST

    During his tenure as a public member of the State Bar of California Board of Governors, Davis -- despite his Republicans affiliation -- participated (alongside public members Dickstein-English, Laura Chick, and Gwen Moore) in a highly sopisiticated financial scheme executed by "OBAMA FOR AMERICA" operatives known as CaliforniaALL.

    During his tenure on the Board of Governors, Davis also conspired with Jon Streeter of Keker & Van Nest to "hide" associate Chris Young (who played a major role in the CaliforniaALL scheme).  The hiding of Chris Young (dubbed as Three-Card-Monte given its tricky and unlawful nature) occurred during the same period of time he had concpired with Streeter and other to file false criminal charges against the Yolo County based-Rabbi with the Yolo County District Attorney.

    TLR has also learned that --presumably in consideration for unlawful services rendered by Jon Streeter --  Davis has bestowed on Streeter an expensive gift featuring baseball player Willie Mays.

  • UPDATE #2 to Epic Fraud by Judge David Reed, Wife Sheryl Cambron, Lea and David Rosenberg: Michael Cabral and Jonathan Raven of Yolo DA Accused of Deception, Agents of Davis Odd Fellows

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

    Subsequently, I filed a second C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge to Judge David Reed stemming from what I believed were acts of fraud and deceit perpetrated by Odd Fellows Home of California in connection with Judge Dave Reed, a “cease and desist” demand sent to Odd Fellow Home of California, and fraud on the Court perpetrated by Judge David Reed in connection with his failure to previously disclose his very recent role as “Grand Conductor” of the California Grand Lodge (the entity supervising David Odd Fellow and Davis Odd Fellow Hall), as well as a request for an evidentiary hearing.

    On Thursday, August 22, 2013, Judge Reed filed a reply to the second C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge asserting various defenses on the merits including, among others, that he was under no legal duty to disclose the fact that he was an officer (Conductor) of the Grand Lodge. (It is important to note that Judge Reed did not assert that I was not entitled, procedurally speaking, to file a second C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge (i.e. “seriatim” challenges).)

    Subsequent to the filing of my second Challenge, I became aware of even additional evidence of what I believed were further acts of fraud and deceit perpetrated by Judge Dave Reed in connection with his failure to disclose to me and Judge Valli Israels the fact that Judge Reed’s wife (Sheryl Cambron) is an officer of Davis Rebekah Lodge – an entity headed by Lea and David Rosenberg which was the subject of the IRS complaint — as well as the fact that Ms. Cambron is also an officer of the Davis Encampment, an entity headed by Dave Rosenberg. Moreover, I also became aware after filing the second Challenge that between 2010-2012, Judge David Reed headed Davis Odd Fellow, a fact that he failed to disclose to me and Judge Valli Israels.

    As such, I filed with the Court a request for leave to file a reply to Judge Reed’s opposition to the second verified challenge and a request for leave to address the newly discovered evidence dealing with Judge Reed’s failure to inform me and the Court of, among others his wife’s involvement with Davis Rebekah Lodge.

    This motion is presently pending (presumably before Judge Valli Israels) and awaits adjudication.

    Subsequent to my filing of a request to file a reply to Judge Reed’s opposition, on September 9, 2013, I received an “Opposition to the Second Verified Challenge” filed by Michael Cabral of the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office. This “opposition” is patently defective, intentionally misstates the state of the law, is deceptive by omission, and should be stricken.

    Michael Cabral aka Mike Cabral of Yolo County District Attorney
    Cabral (image: courtesy photo)

    First, Mr. Cabral failed to inform this Court that he himself is a member of the Davis Odd Fellow, and that the second in command at the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office (Mr. Jonathan Raven) is an officer of Davis Odd Fellow. This creates the appearance that Mr. Cabral and Mr. Raven, rather than acting as the legal agents of “the People,” are instead acting as the legal agents of Lea and David Rosenberg, Judge David Reed, his wife Cheryl Cambron, David Rosenberg’s Judicial Campaign Treasurer Vic Bucher, as well as agents of David Odd Fellow and its sister entity (Davis Rebekah Lodge) which blatantly refuse to comply with IRS rules and regulations by making available for public inspection their IRS 990 Forms, as required by law.

    Second, I have not been able to locate any legal authority to support the claim that I am not entitled to file “seriatim” verified challenges, as the Yolo DA alleges.

    The fact of the matter is that only after the Honorable Judge Valli Israels issued her decision, did I fortuitously come across the newly discovered evidence mentioned above which is highly relevant to a determination of whether Judge Reed should be disqualified because of their relevancy and, most importantly, because Judge Reed was under an absolute duty to voluntary disclose those facts to Hon. Judge Valli Israels and to me.

    Instead, Jude Reed chose to mislead by remaining silent, further demonstrating the need for this Verified Challenge.

    According to YR: "On June 14, 2013, I filed a C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge to Judge David Reed stemming from his association with Judge David and Lea Rosenberg, his associations with Davis Odd Fellow and Davis Rebekah Lodge, the fact that I had filed an IRS complaint against those entities, and because of the media exposure on Davis Patch.

    On Thursday, August 22, 2013, Judge Reed filed a reply to the second C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge.

    The purpose of this Motion is to ask the Court for leave to file a response to Judge Reed’s reply to the second C.C.P. section 170.1 Verified Challenge.

    Additionally, subsequent to the filing of the second Challenge, I became aware of additional evidence of what I believed were further acts of fraud and deceit perpetrated by Judge Dave Reed in connection with Judge Reed’s failure to disclose to me and Judge Valli Israels the fact that Judge Reed's wife (Sheryl Cambron) is an officer of Davis Rebekah Lodge – an entity headed by Lea and David Rosenberg which was the subject of the IRS complaint -- as well as the fact that Ms. Cambron is also an officer of the Davis Encampment, an entity headed by Dave Rosenberg.

    Moreover, I also became aware after filing the second Challenge that between 2010-2012, Judge David Reed headed Davis Odd Fellow, a fact that he failed to disclose to me and Judge Valli Israels. As was mentioned previously, Davis Odd Fellow was the subject of a complaint by me to the IRS because of its failure to comply with IRS rules and regulations in producing documents relating to years 2010-2013 .

    Consequently, the undersigned moves this Court to allow the filing of further pleadings setting forth the newly discovered evidence, as well as for an evidentiary hearing in support thereof."

  • BREAKING... Yolo County Superior Court Judicial Scandal Expands... Alleged Epic Fraud by Judge David Reed... Lea and David Rosenberg... Jonathan Raven... Reed's Wife Sheryl Cambron Under Intense Scrutiny...

    The Leslie Brodie Report (TLR) is carefully following a major developing story out of California relating to Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Reed. We will provide around-the-clock coverage and post updates as they become available.

    Dave Reed
    Yolo County Superior Court Judge David Reed who, allegedly, failed to disclose his role as "Noble Grand" (e.g. president) of Davis Odd Fellows # 169 and Davis Rebekah Lodge # 253 pursuant to a conspiracy he had entered into with Davis Odd Fellows operatives Lea Rosenberg, David Rosenberg, Jonathan Raven, Michael Cabral, and spouse Sheryl Cambron. Moreover, while under penalty of perjury, Judge Reed failed to disclose the fact that his wife Sheryl Cambron is an officer (i.e. conductor) of Davis Rebekah Lodge -- the one and same entity headed by Lea Rosenberg which was the subject of a complaint to the IRS This latest development comes in the aftermath of revelation of a separate deceit and fraud on the Court perpetrated by Judge David Reed in connection with his failure to previously disclose his very recent role as “Grand Conductor” of the California Grand Lodge – the entity supervising Davis Odd Fellow and Davis Odd Fellow Hall.(image: courtesy photo)

    Sheryl Cambron

  • Friendship, Love and Truth of Yolo County Superior Court Judges David Reed and David Rosenberg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • US Supreme Court Asked to Review Dydzak v. Schwarzenegger

    Marina Del Rey-based legal scholar Dan Dydzak is taking the unusual step of asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review a ruling by the Ninth Circuit in the case of Dydzak v. Schwarzenegger.

    Dydzak's Petition for Writ of Certiorari filed with the U.S. Supreme Court leaves little doubt that he is ready to continue his fight to eradicate the corruption and graft infecting California's justice system.

    In the Petition, he asks the Court to to intervene again and void a ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which according to Dydzak, is "void ab initio" as it was not signed by the judges of the court, but, rather was signed by the Court's clerk -- Molly Dwyer.

    Dydzak has been locked in litigation for some time as his suit has meandered from Washington DC, to California, and back to Washington DC.

    Some of the defendants named in the suit are Bet Tzedek, Keker & Van Nest, David Werdegar, Holly Fujie, Alen Rothenberg, Tom Layton, and Jeff Reisig.

    The case of Dydzak v.Schwarzenegger received widespread public attention when it was initially filed after California-based Judicial Council Watcher published a copy of the original complaint online.

    Of note, the United States Supreme Court hears less than 1 percent of the thousands of petitions that are filed each year, and rarely grants such requests.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Yolo County Superior Court Judges David Rosenberg / David Reed Embroiled in New Controversy as Odd Fellow Home of California Asked to Cease Misrepresentation

    In the midst of growing controversies over Lea and David Rosenberg, It was revealed yesterday that Odd Fellow Home of California was asked to cease from further misrepresenting the status of its current leadership.

    According to YR, the web site for Odd Fellow Home of California ( http://caioof.org/odd-fellows-homes/ ) reflects that Mr. David Rosenberg is the Chair for 2014 despite the fact that Rosenberg has resigned from this position effective May 2013.

    In addition, Odd Fellow Home of California was asked to "update the site to reflect the election of Mr. David Reed as a board member of Odd Fellow Home of California. "

  • Breaking News: Michael Cabral of Yolo County District Attorney's Office Caught Withholding Critical Information

    Further aggravating the Yolo County D.A.'s wrongful conduct in obtaining a search warrant without probable cause in connection with CaliforniaALL's financial scheme, Yolo County's Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral (aka Mike Cabral) is now embroiled in claims that he engaged in prosecutorial misconduct when he withheld evidence in order to cover-up the D.A. Office's alleged prior misconduct.

    Specifically, a motion to disqualify the entire Yolo County District Attorney's Office was filed on the grounds that, subsequent to the filing of a civil RICO suit naming Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig by an uninvolved third-party (Dan Dydzak), the entire office must be disqualified because both Cabral and Reisig are designated witnesses and because the Yolo DA now has a "financial interest" in manufacturing a case against YR.


    Yolo County Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral (Image: courtesy photos)

    Opposing the motion to disqualify were representatives of both the California Attorney General's office (on behalf of the State of California) and Michael Cabral (on behalf of the Yolo DA).

    Cabral's written opposition consisted solely of an ten page memorandum of points of authorities (the majority of which was irrelevant legal discussion). Only the last paragraph's of Cabral's written opposition was devoted to the merits of this particular case; in that section, Cabral claimed that Dydzak was a vexatious litigant, and that no summons were issued in Dydzak's original RICO suit. No sworn declaration or affidavit was submitted by either the Attorney General or the Yolo DA. During the hearing on the motion to disqualify, Judge Dave Reed (who presided over the matter) refused YR's repeated requests for an evidentiary hearing, something which is prescribed by statute.

    However, in a shocking development -- and following repeated objections by YR relating to the lack of an evidentiary hearing -- in an unusual move Judge Reed placed Michael Cabral under oath, and asked Cabral to authenticate evidence relating to whether or not summons were issued by the court in the underlying RICO suit Dydzak advanced against Reisig. During the court's interrogation of him, Cabral had a "Freudian slip," and stated that he had actually spoken to Dydzak on several occasions over the telephone shortly before Dydzak had filed his civil RICO action naming, among others, Reisig.

    Cabral also admitted that he had offered to return Dydzak's property which was allegedly confiscated during the execution of the search warrant on the home of YR.

    YR maintains that subsequent to the hearing on his motion to disqualify the Yolo County D.A.'s office, he spoke to Dydzak, who informed him that before he filed the lawsuit, he (Dydzak) spoke with Cabral and had informed him that he planned to file a RICO lawsuit naming Jeff Reisig due to the alleged unlawful search and seizure of materials from the home of YR.

    Per YR, the fact that Cabral had a phone conversation with Dydzak is "news to me." In addition, it appears odd that Cabral failed to submit a sworn declaration or affidavit in opposition to the motion to disqualify the Yolo DA, and failed to put in writing what he disclosed in court -- that he was aware of Dydzak's intent to file the civil RICO action.

    It appears that the Yolo DA's office and Mr. Cabral having been hiding the truth both from YR and the court, something that will be addressed in soon-to-be-filed motions.

  • IRS to Investigate Soroptimist International of Davis; Davis Rebekah Lodge;and Davis Odd Fellows Pursuant to Complaint Submitted by Yolo County-based Rabbi - Copy of Complaint

    May 22, 2013

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Rogue Lawyer John Keker Abandons Client as Steven Donziger Issues Misleading Press Release

    "The lawyer who has been defending controversial plaintiffs attorney Steven Donziger in a lawsuit by Chevron Corp (CVX.N), filed a motion on Friday to withdraw as counsel, citing Donziger's inability to pay his legal bills," according to Reuters

    With their clients unable to afford fighting claims that they fraudulently snared a $19 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuador, two law firms now seek to withdraw. "This is an extraordinary case, which has degenerated into a Dickensian farce," John Keker of the San Francisco-based firm Keker & Van Nest wrote in a 15-page motion, according to Courthouse News Service.

    As expected, in a highly miselading press-release, Donziger blamed Judge Lewis Kaplan and Chevron (rather than his own inability to pay).  Donziger  wrote:

    Bias of Federal Judge and Chevron’s Abusive Tactics Prompt Law Firm to Withdraw from Ecuador Case

    Submitted by: Donziger and Associates

    Categories: Corporate Social Responsibility, Environment

    Posted: May 03, 2013 – 07:27 PM EST

    NEW YORK, May 03 /CSRwire/ - Citing the bias of New York federal judge Lewis A. Kaplan against Ecuadorian rainforest residents who won a judgment against Chevron, a prominent law firm is seeking to withdraw from its representation of New York attorney Steven Donziger in a related New York case that it says “has degenerated into a Dickensian farce” due to the oil giant’s abusive litigation tactics.

    Keker & Van Nest, which represents Donziger, who is the main target of a Chevron retaliation campaign, filed the motion Friday before Judge Kaplan.  Lead attorney John Keker has called the New York proceedings orchestrated by Judge Kaplan a “show trial” and previously said that Kaplan was treating him “like a goat tethered to a stake.”

    Separately, and for similar reasons, the Houston-based law firm Smyser Kaplan & Veselka also announced it would seek to withdraw from the case on behalf of the two Ecuadorian rainforest residents who have appeared, Javier Piaguaje and Hugo Camacho.

    Keker’s motion to withdraw from the case can be found here.  A statement from Donziger, which emphasized the New York litigation will have no impact on the international enforcement efforts that target Chevron assets, can be found here.

     

  • Man Suspected of Stealing Confidential Internal Revenue Service Document Identified

    One wrongdoer in the improper seizure of a confidential document issued by the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") from a home in Yolo County has been identified.

    Pete Martin
    Mr. Pete Martin (image: courtesy of LinkedIn)

    The alleged wrongdoer, Peter Martin (aka Pete Martin), a former Computer Forensic Examiner with the Yolo County District Attorney’s office, was positively identified as the individual who improperly confiscated a confidential document issued by the IRS pertaining to a complaint Yolo County-based YR submitted against Voice of OC.

    Per YR, "On February 23, 2012, Yolo DA investigators executed a search warrant at my residence in Yolo County. The warrant authorized the Yolo DA to retrieve information relating to various named individuals. Along with a desktop computer, a laptop computer, hard drive, other computer equipment, and many other materials (particularly documents and notebooks) not authorized by the search warrant, the investigators took the liberty of confiscating a letter from the IRS to me pertaining to a complaint I filed against this so called online news agency Voice of OC.

    While Lieutenant Connor was the officer in charge during the raid as far as operations, Pete Martin was responsible for determining what documents and items to take and not to take.

    After this bizarre search and seizure was concluded, Pete Martin presented to me an invoice to sign, and allowed me to quickly inspect the materials about to be confiscated. I immediately noticed that a confidential document sent to me by the IRS was among the stacks of papers and notebooks taken.

    I asked Mr. Martin why he is taking all those documents, and he stated that any and all documents referencing or relating to the State Bar of California are being confiscated. When I pointed to him that the document issued by the IRS mentions neither the State Bar of California nor any person listed on the warrant, a defiant Mr. Martin stated that the document would be confiscated nevertheless."

    As mentioned previously, a civil-racketeering action by Marina Del Rey-based legal scholar Daniel Dydzak alleges that Yolo County DA Jeff Reisig and his deputies/investigators engaged in an "unlawful search and seizure," and that Mr. Reisig conspired to participate in a RICO enterprise, and also participated in the commission of two or more racketeering activities acting as an "accomplice."

    YR notes that he believes Martin and the other officers who came to his home in February 2012 intended to improperly confiscate materials relating to Voice of OC and CaliforniaALL prior to entering his home, despite the fact that seizure of such materials was not authorized by the search warrant.

    Consequently, YR maintains that although at the moment he does not want to take his eyes off the ball (meaning Ron Olson, James Brosnahan, Jeff Bleich, John Keker, Mark Robinson, Joe Dunn, and others), in the future he will be exploring all available lawful remedies against Martin for this improper conduct.

    To date, the Yolo DA has not returned the confiscated materials.
