It was revealed today that a former president of the State Bar of California and a U.S. federal judge are accused of conspiring to violate the constitutional rights of a California-based consumer activist.
In her currently-pending litigation, influential consumer activist Erin Baldwin accuses Holly Fujie and U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee of failing to disclose their close personal relationship to her, both separately and independent of one other.
These claims arose when Baldwin, a plaintiff, named Fujie as defendant in a federal court action which was assigned to the courtroom of United States District Court for the Central District of California, Hon. Judge Dolly Gee.
The claim of improprieties, published first by TLR, stems from recently-discovered evidence showing that both Fujie and Gee are members of the federal bar association's board of directors, and are otherwise heavily involved in promoting each other in various APIA-only entities.
Previously, in a motion filed with the court, Baldwin already questioned Judge Dolly Gee's impartiality, alleging that Judge Gee was appointed to the bench through the efforts of Holly Fujie -- who serves as chairperson of a committee which recommends the appointment of federal judges to California Senator Diane Feinstein.
Baldwin has also pointed fingers at another member of said committee -- Holly Fujie's fellow confederate from Bet Tzedek, Eric George.
The latest allegations came as racial minorities in position of trust are routinely accused of intentional misrepresentation by failing to fulfill their duties to avoid any and all appearance of, let alone real, improprieties, and usually involving entities which are on the receiving end of money from large corporations, and usually utility companies. Most notable of which are "Shakedown Artist" Gwen Moore, Judy Johnson, Leslie Hatamiya, Ruthe Catolico Ashley, Maria Lucy Armendariz-Antonio Villaraigosa, Justice Ming Chin, Alec Chang, Lawrence Yee, former crack-addict Mike Nisperos. Pat McElroy, and U.S. District Court Judge Morrison C. England.
HOLLY FUJIE - Update
A former partner of Los Angeles-based Buchalter Nemer -- who California Governor Jerry Brown appointed to the Los Angeles County Superior Court bench under questionable circumstances involving his cousin, former California Public Utility Commissioner Geoff Brown -- is accused in federal court of committing myriad financial crimes and acts of fraud.
Documents filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia reveal that Holly Fujie of Los Angeles allegedly engaged in predicate acts of racketeering through and by means of money laundering, mail and bank fraud, as well as conversion of funds.
The lawsuit, filed as a civil-racketeering action by Marina Del Rey-based community activist Daniel Dydzak, also names as a defendant Bet Tzedek Legal Services of Los Angeles and Eric George -- the son of the controversial former chief justice of California, Ronald George.
Both Holly Fujie and Eric George were directors of Bet Tzedek, an entity which obtained millions of dollars from the various trusts funds maintained and operated by the State Bar of California, as well as funds from the California Bar Foundation, where Holly Fujie presently serves as the vice-president.
Both the State Bar of California and the California Bar Foundation are under the direct control of the California Supreme Court.
The various legal trust funds maintained by the State Bar of California are overseen by the Legal Services Trust Fund Commission where, coincidentally, Holly Fujie also served as director.
Heading the commission is David Lash of O'Melveny & Myers, another lawyer who is a director of Bet Tzedek, and Bonnie Rubin of 1st Century Bank -- a bank owned by former president of the State Bar of California Alan Rothenberg. Coincidentally, Eric George is part owner of 1st Century Bank.
Dydzak alleges in his lawsuits that part of the millions originated from the State Bar of California and its foundation headed to Bet Tzedek were embezzled by the various actors and were siphoned to off shore bank accounts.
Bet Tzedek is headed by CEO Sandor "Sandy" Samuels -- former Chief Trial Counsel at embattled Countywide Financial Services -- who according to Dydzak was appointed President and CEO of Bet Tzedek largely due to his working knowledge of how to operate an enterprise which engages in myriad financial crimes.
According to confidential sources familiar with the situation, Dydzak filed the suit in Washington DC, because he is extremely concerned that given the caliber of the defendants and the fact that they are in control of the justice system in California, they will seek to injure him in various ways, including in seeking to somehow derail the suit.
According to these sources, Tom Layton, investigator from the State Bar of California who is well connected with Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca, in the past paid a visit to Dydzak's neighborhood, and sought to convince his neighbors to falsely accuse Dydzak of various acts of misconduct, including providing improper and unlawful legal counsel.
