General Claims Conduct of Kevin McCormick and the California Judicial Council, Chaired by California Chief Justice, Ronald George including, but not limited to unlawful appearances and filing of fraudulent records in the habeas corpus petition of Richard Fine – Fine v Sheriff (2:09-cv-01914) is alleged as serious abuse of the
July 4, 2010
Constitutional, Civil, and Human Rights of Richard Fine and all who reside in California. including, but not limited to: a) Public Corruption, b) Deprivation of Rights Under the Color of Law, c) Honest Services Fraud, d) Extortion, e) Fraud, f) Mail Fraud, and g) Conspiracy 4. Complainant is NOT an Attorney Complainants are not attorneys, and are not represented by attorney in any of the matters described in instant complaint either. For such reason, in most case, no section of the code was cited. US Attorney is requested to apply the correct sections of the code. In case error was made, where sections of the code were cited, US Attorney is requested to disregard such citations, and apply the correct section of the code instead. 5. Additional Evidence and Records: For the sake of brevity, only a small part of the evidence was described and linked below. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr Zernik for additional evidence in this matter. Additional record pertaining to the habeas corpus petition of Richard Fine - Fine v Sheriff (2:09-cv01914) are readily available under PACER and CM/ECF – the US District Court, Central District of California. A. Conduct of Attorney Kevin McCormick and the California Judicial Council, Chaired by California Chief Justice, Ronald George 6. The Sheriff of Los Angeles County, named Respondent in the habeas corpus petition refused to respond on the
petition. Instead, Attorney Kevin McCormick appeared in the litigation under the caption and case number listed above, purporting to be authorized to do so on behalf of Judge David Yaffe and the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles.
7. As is made clear in correspondence between Joseph Zernik, PhD, and the California Judicial Council, ii Attorney McCormick engaged in such appearances through collusion with the California Judicial Council Chaired by California Chief Justice Ronald George. However, the correspondence documented that in fact Attorney McCormick was never authorized to appear in the caption of Richard Fine v Sheriff of Los Angeles County (2:09-cv-01914).
8. Likewise, Attorney Kevin McCormick never filed a certificate of Counsel of Record for his purported clients – Judge David Yaffe and the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Moreover, there is no evidence that Attorney McCormick ever communicated with his clients in the matter where he was purporting to represent them. 9. In such appearances, through alleged collusion, Attorney McCormick filed false records, false declarations and other papers, all intended to affect the false imprisonment of Richard Fine. Richard Fine, former US prosecutor, who exposed, publicized, and rebuked taking by judges in Los Angeles County of "not permitted" payments
(called by media "bribes"). On February 20, 2009, the Governor of California signed "retroactive immunities" (pardons) for all judges in Los Angeles. 10. Of particular notice are records originating from the Sheriff’s Department which were filed by Attorney McCormick, and were purported to be a March 4, 2010 Judgment of Contempt and March 4, 2010 Remand Order. iii Such record were false and deliberately misleading: a) The Judgment was a false record on its face: It was stamped “FILED” on March 4, 2009 on its face page, while it was signed by Judge David Yaffe with the date of March 24, 2009 on its last page. The Judgment was never entered either, as required by California law to make it “effectual for any purpose”. It was never authenticated either, as required to make it a valid and effectual court record.

b) The Remand Order was yet another invalid and ineffectual court record. It failed to appear among the records of the Superior Court in the originating case – Marina v LA County (BS109420). Moreover, Remand and Removal Orders pertain to persons under custody of the Sheriff, and Richard Fine was not under custody at that time. 11. Regardless, Attorney McCormick filed such records with a Declaration under penalty of perjury, purporting it to be the legal foundation for the ongoing holding of Richard Fine by the Sheriff of Los Angeles County. 12. It should be further noticed that the Sheriff of Los Angeles County, in response to requests filed by Joseph Zernik and Human Rights Alert pursuant to the California Public Records Act and inquiry by the Honorable Michael Antonovich, Supervisor of Los Angeles County, produced entirely different records. iv The records produced by the Sheriff purported that Richard Fine was arrested and booked by the Sheriff’s Department on location and by authority of the “Municipal Court of San Pedro”. No such court has existed for almost a decade. Moreover, the Sheriff Deputy on location at the San Pedro Annex of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, denied that Richard Fine or anybody else was arrested and booked there in recent years. In fact, the Sheriff Deputy insisted that there were no booking facilities on location. 13. Therefore, it is alleged that the records produced by the Sheriff of Los Angeles County were fraudulent records as well. 14. Combined, it is alleged that there were and are no records at all conforming with the fundamentals of the law to provide the legal foundation for the arrest and ongoing confinement of Richard Fine, and Richard Fine is therefore entitled to his immediate release pursuant to Fay v Noia (1963). Instead, he has been subjected since March 4, 2009 to false imprisonment under solitary confinement. His false arrest and false imprisonment are alleged as retaliation for exposure of large-scale public corruption at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Attorney Kevin McCormick and the California Judicial Council, Chaired by California Chief Justice Ronald George are alleged as central to this scheme. B. Refusal of Attorney Kevin McCormick and the California Judicial Council, Chaired by Ronald George to Initiate Corrective Actions, even after Noticed of their Conduct. 15. The California Code of Judicial Ethics requires judges to initiate corrective actions, upon being reliably informed of inappropriate conduct at the courts. Attorneys are likewise required to engage in honest appearances pursuant to Professional Codes of Conduct. All parties involved in this case were duly informed of the alleged acts of public corruption and deprivation of civil rights under the color of law alleged in this complaint: v a) Attorney Kevin McCormick b) California Chief Justice Ronald George and the California Judicial Council. c) Lee Baca, Sheriff of Los Angeles County, d) Judge David Yaffe, e) Chief Judge of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles Charles McCoy, f) Clerk of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles John A Clarke. 16. Regardless, Richard Fine remains falsely imprisoned to this date, and there is no evidence of any corrective actions by any of the parties listed above. 17. Petition Filed with Sheriff Lee Baca: In October 2009 an online petition was initiated, which was also faxed to Sheriff Lee Baca. vi The petition provided links to the false and deliberately records that the Sheriff produced in response to requests pursuant to the California Public Records Act for the arrest and booking records of an individual prisoner, and requested that the Sheriff release such person, who is held under false pretense under the color of law. At the writing of this complaint the petition shows some 300 signatures from people across the United States and around the world. C. Court Opinions and Judgments Regarding the Habeas Corpus Petition of Richard Fine
July 4, 2010
18. The matter of false imprisonments by the Sheriff, under false and deliberately misleading records, was never reviewed by court to the best of my knowledge. None of the orders, judgment and mandate in the habeas corpus petition Fine v Sheriff (2:09-cv-01914) were authenticated by the US District Court, Central District of California, as required to make them valid and effectual court minutes, orders and judgment pursuant to the Court’s General Order 08-02. vii D. National and International Awareness 19. As part of the first ever review by the United Nations (UPR) of Human Rights in the United States, report was filed by Human Rights Alert (NGO) viii alleging widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California. The report further alleged refusal of the US government to abide by its duties and responsibilities pursuant to ratified international law – in refusing to accord equal protection to the 10 million residents of Los Angeles County. Large-scale false imprisonments were alleged in the report as the highlight of the corruption. 20. As part of the process, US, UK, and Germany based blogs were created,ix where almost 17,000 readers from some 85 nations were recorded so far. The Scribd site of Human Rights Alert has recorded close to 70,000 reads, with over 500 reads a day in recent months.x Additional news sites recorded thousands of additional readers. xi Canada, Australia, and France based blogs are planned for the near future.
E. Remedies Requested 21. Request is herein filed with the office of US Attorney, Central District of California, by Joseph Zernik, PhD, and Human Rights Alert (NGO) for the following remedies: a) Equal protection for Richard Fine and all 10 millions who reside in Los Angeles County under US and ratified international law. b) Restoration of the Liberty of Richard Fine. c) Investigation and prosecution, if necessary, of allegations of public corruption and civil rights deprivation under the color of law against those accused in instant complaint.
