CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES – UNSUCCESSFUL SEARCH FOR
ENTERED MARCH 4, 2009 JUDGMENT IN MARINA V LA COUNTY (BS109420)

I, Joseph Zernik, hereby declare as follows:
Instant Declaration was written as memorandum of visit to the Archive of Superior Court of
California, County of Los Angeles, in search for entered judgments in the microfilm Judgment
reels. The primary goal was to try to find an entered March 4, 2009 Judgment and Order of
Contempt RE: Richard Fine, which was purported as the basis for his holding for over a year
at this time.
1) On April 16, 2010 I went to the Archive. I had to wait about 2 hours before my name
was called.
2) I had a list of four cases, where I was going to search for judgments and appealable
orders.
3) The table below provides the records that were sought, and the results of the searches:

4) In total, out of 9 judgments or appealable orders, which were searched, only one was
found. Of significance – it was the June 2, 2008 Judgment in Marina v LA County
(BS109420), the same case, where the March 4, 2009 Judgment and Order for
Contempt RE: Richard I Fine, could not be found among entered microfilm
judgments.

5) One should note that even for such judgment, the record was incomplete – since the
record failed to include the authentication of the judgment.

6) Exhibit 1 is the June 2, 2008 Judgment from Marina v LA County (BS109420), as
retrieved from the Judgments Central Reel #1739 Judgments Central, June 2, 2008 –
June 09- 2008.

7) Juana conducted the hands-on searched, and I was sitting next to her, checking that
she did the search correctly.

8) The reels were obtained by the Supervisor, whose name I did not get.

9) For the March 4, 2009 search, I printed out all the judgments entered on that day in
Central District, as evidence that no judgment for Contempt against Richard Fine was
ever entered.

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California and the United
States that the foregoing is true and correct.
Executed this 18
th
day in April, 2010, in La Verne, County of Los Angeles, California.
