10-12-04 Request for investigation, impeachment proceedings where appropriate, in re: USJudges JED RAKOFF, VIRGINIA PHILLIPS, JOHN WALTER, and US MagistrateCARLA WOEHRLE – for conduct, which undermined Banking Regulation and/orHuman Rights in the United States
i
Los Angeles, December 4 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, filed request [] withCongressman John Conyers, Jr,
Chair -
House Committee on the Judiciary, Senator Patrick Leahy,
Chair -
 Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and Congresswoman Louise McIntosh Slaughter,
Chair 
– HouseCommittee on Rules, for investigation and impeachment proceedings, where appropriate, against JudgesJED RAKOFF, VIRGINIA PHILLIPS, JOHN WALTER, and US Magistrate CARLA WOEHRLE. Therequest alleged that the conduct of the named judges and magistrate undermined Banking Regulation and/orHuman Rights in the United States.The request further claimed that such conduct could not take place absent collusion by the Clerks of therespective courts:1. RUBY KRAJICK - Clerk of the Court, US District Court, Southern District of New York, and2. TERRY NAFISI – Clerk of the Court, US District Court, Central District of California.
The request and attached detailed reports described conduct of the US judges, the US magistrate, and therespective Clerks, which followed the same pattern:
presiding with no valid assignment/referral orders,failing to issue judicial records, or issuing deliberately invalid judicial records, which were published inthe online PACER dockets of the respective courts, as if they were valid and effectual. The requestclaimed that such conduct amounted to pretense judicial review and violation of the Oaths of Office,including, but not limited to: denial of access to the courts, deprivation of rights under the color of law,and/or misprision of felonies; therefore - impeachable offences.
 
The request claimed that the matters held the highest public policy significance, because of the nature of the underlying matters:1. In
SEC v BAC 
(1-09-cv-06829) and
 Zernik v Connor et al
(2:08-cv-01550) - the request alleged thatconduct of Judge JED RAKOFF, Judge VIRGINIA PHILLIPS, and Magistrate CARLA WOEHRLEwas intended to cover-up criminality by BANK OF AMERICA CORPORATION (andCOUNTRYWIDE FINANICIAL CORPORATION) and its most senior officers, which SEC,banking regulators, and law enforcement have refused to address in recent years. Therefore, theconduct of Judges RAKOFF and PHILLIPS and Magistrate WOEHRLE amounted to underminedBanking Regulation.2. In
Fine v Sheriff 
(2:09-cv-01914) and
 Zernik v Connor et al
(2:08-cv-01550) – the request alleged thatconduct of Judge JOHN WALTER, Judge VIRGINIA PHILLIPS, and Magistrate CARLAWOEHRLE was intended to cover-up widespread corruption of judges of the Superior Court of California, County of the Los Angeles and/or large-scale false imprisonment by the same Court,which US Department of Justice has refused to address over the past decade. Therefore, conduct of Judges WALTER and PHILLIPS and Magistrate WOEHRLE undermined the Human Rights of all10 million residents of Los Angeles County, California.The request furthermore claimed that the conduct of the named Judges, the Magistrate, and Clerks reflectedstructural deficiencies relative to integrity of the United States courts:

1. Lack of accountability of the Clerks of the Courts for integrity of the electronic court records.Conditions, which now prevailed in the US courts, enabled the publication of false and deliberatelymisleading PACER dockets and false and deliberately misleading minutes, orders, and judgments.2. Lack of validity and integrity of PACER and CM/ECF as electronic court administration systems.The systems enabled the publication of dockets, minutes, orders, and judgments in a manner thatprevented the public from distinguishing between records, which the US courts themselves deemedvalid and effectual and records, which the US courts themselves deemed void. The systems wereimplemented over the past decade by the Administrative Office of the US Courts with insufficientpublic oversight. It was claimed that the systems were central to undermining the integrity of the UScourts.An additional structural deficiency was directly related to the case of 
Fine v Sheriff 
(2:09-cv-01914), and toHabeas Corpus rights in the United States:3. Lack of validity of the Los Angeles County Booking Records system and the Los Angeles CountySheriff’s Department’s online Inmate Information Center.The case of 
Fine v Sheriff 
(2:09-cv-01914) documented how the systems were used to affect allegedfalse imprisonment under the pretense of lawfulness.The request referred to a series of reports, either published or pending review, which detailed the conduct of the named judges, magistrate, and clerks, as well as the outlined structural deficiencies:1. The Calendars and the Clerks of the US Courts

]The request noted that the latter two reports were published in an international, peer-reviewed computerscience journal, listing on its Editorial Board scholars from six European nations and Canada.The request also noted that the same reports proposed corrective measures by US Congress:1. Restoring provisions of the
Salary Act 
of 1919 - placing the clerks under the authority of the USAttorney General.The
Salary Act 
of 1919 was credited as a key measure in restoring the integrity of the US courts acentury ago. It placed the clerks under authority of the US Attorney General. Conditions in the courtstoday indicated that reformwas in order – through placing the clerks under authority of the USAttorney General again. [
]2. Enacting federal rules for the electronic administration of the courts.Implementation of electronic case management and online public access systems amounted to a sea-change in court procedures. Regardless, both the courts and the US Congress had so far failed toestablish design and operation of the systems under statute.The request suggested that combined, the two above measures by US Congress could address the followingissues:

1. Restoring accountability of the clerks for the integrity of electronic court records.The evidence demonstrated that clerks today held themselves unaccountable for the validity andintegrity of electronic court records, in particular – online public access systems.2. Restoring the right to access judicial records – to inspect and to copy.Combined, PACER and CM/ECF were today used to conceal critical attestation/authenticationrecords (the NEFs and NDAs), and therefore did not permit the public to distinguish between validand effectual court records and such that were deemed by the US courts as void.3. Establishing valid, publicly accessible digital signatures on all applicable court records by judges,clerks, and counsel.The evidence showed that courts established as acceptable various methods, which did not meetminimal requirements for valid digital signatures for judges, clerks, and counsel.4. Establishing valid procedures for the clerks’ electronic attestation/authentication records.The evidence showed that the NEFs and NDAs, which were established by the US courts as electronicclerks’ attestation/authentication records were invalid and void, as to form.5. Establishing publicly accessible, valid procedures for certification by counsel of his/her authorizationas counsel of record for parties, on behalf of whom such counsel appeared in court.Certification of counsel’s authority as counsel of record was left vague and ambiguous, permittingunauthorized appearances in the courts.6. Validation of electronic administrative systems of the courts.Validation of such systems had to be undertaken prior to their installation, in a manner that was legallyand publicly accountable – e.g. through agencies that were accountableto the legislative branch. Suchvalidation had to be based on certified, functional logic verification [
] in all stages of fromdevelopment, through implementation, to any modifications and ongoing security. [
]Inherent in the validation of the system was also the requirement that all unpublished
 Local Rules of Court 
, which were today embedded in specification and implementation of the systems, be explicitlypre-published innatural language for public comment and challenge, as required by the
 Rulemaking Enabling Act.

]Similar problems were previously identified in the implementation of electronic voting machines, and the US government was yet to adequately address the issue, despite ongoing protests. [
,
]7. Establishing an enhanced level of transparency in the electronic administrative systems of the courts.Enhanced transparency was required to permit ongoing effective public monitoring of the systems.The request was copied to Congressman Barney Frank,
Chair 
- House Financial Services Committee,Senator Christopher Dodd,
Chair 
- Senate Banking Committee, Senator Carl Levin,
Chair 
- SenateInvestigations Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Basel Accords Committee (on internationalbanking), various national central banks, and the United Nations Human Rights Council - Working Group onthe 2010 Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the United States.
