10-08-22 RE: SC087400- Complaint against former Judge Patricia Collins, Judge Lisa HartCole, Attorney David Pasternak, Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI) and others for public corruption and racketeering by judges, financial institutions, and large lawfirms in pretense proceedings at the Court.
Executive Summary 1 Los Angles, August 22 – complaint was filed with US Attorney Office, Central District of California, and Prof Laurence Tribe - Senior Counsel, US Department Of Justice, Access to Justice Initiative, by Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, against former Judge Patricia Collins, Judge Lisa Hart-Cole, Attorney David Pasternak, Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI), and Attorney Richard Ormond (Buchalter Nemer, LLP) - for public corruption and racketeering in pretense proceedings at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Others named as accused in the complaint were Judge Jacqueline Connor, Presiding Judge Charles McCoy, Judge in Charge of Writs and Receiverships David Yaffe, Clerk of the Court John A Clarke, and Court Counsel Fredrick Bennett, who were all alleged as central figures in conduct of a racketeering enterprise at the Court. In early December 2007, Attorney David Pasternak, acting as pretense “Receiver” on behalf of the Court under Samaan v Zernik (SC087400), was perpetrating real estate fraud, as later opined by highly-decorated FBI veteran, fraud expert James Wedick. Target of the fraud was Beverly Hills property of Complainant Zernik. Judge Jacqueline Connor had instigated the scheme two years earlier. To accomplish the fraud, collusion by Mara Escrow, a subsidiary of ORI – a large financial institution, was required. However, Complainant alerted Mara’s Senior Escrow Officer Liz Cohen that she was about to perpetrate real estate fraud. Therefore, Ms Cohen refused to collude with Attorney Pasternak and the Court. On December 7, 2007, to overcome the hurdles, Attorney David Pasternak and others engaged in two pretense “Ex Parte Proceedings” in two separate courthouses on the same morning: 1) In the first “Ex Parte Proceeding”, at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, Attorney David Pasternak, acting as pretense “Receiver” - with no valid and effectual Appointment Order, and Attorney Richard Ormond, on behalf of Mara Escrow, appeared before Judge Lisa Hart-Cole to request Court approval of various documents, never previously seen by Complainant, including, but not limited to: a. “Grant Deeds”, which were later opined as “fraud”; b. “Indemnity Agreement” for Mara Escrow – for future criminalities, and c. Gag Orders – to prohibit pro se Defendant from speech in defense of self with escrow or with the title company, who were conspiring with Attorney Pasternak, the Court, and others to commit real estate fraud. At the onset, Defendant filed a Peremptory Challenge with Judge Hart-Cole. In the proceeding that ensued, both Judge Hart-Cole and Attorney Richard Ormond refused to disclose the name of the latter, or the identity of the party, which he represented in Court in the proceeding. Consequently, Judge Hart-Cole issued Minutes of Recusal. However, later she secretly “disposed” of the Minutes in Sustain - the Court’s case management system, effectively eliminating the proceeding from the record. In the second “Ex Parte Proceeding”, at the Santa Monica Courthouse, Judge Patricia Collins introduced Attorney Pasternak as an “Ad Hoc Receiver”. In response to then Defendant Zernik’s objections for abuse of Free Speech and Possession rights in such “Ex Parte Proceeding”, Attorney Pasternak justified the need for the proceeding in his shortage of funds. Judge Collins then pretended in open court to approve Attorney Pasternak’s requests. However, Judge Collins secretly created for the proceeding void registration and void Minutes in Sustain – with no certification by Clerk.

2)

Consequently, on December 17, 2007, Attorney Pasternak concluded the fraud in conveyance of title on the property. However, the fraud in conduct of Samaan v Zernik continues to this date – the case continues to be listed as “Pending” – since no Judgment was ever entered in the case. The complaint alleged that the mere notion of conducting such proceedings at the Court reflected the impunity of the enterprise. Pretense “Receiverships” by Attorney Pasternak in other cases at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, were documented in complaints previously filed with the US Attorney Office. The scheme was claimed as part of the larger enterprise, founded in the conduct of pretense proceedings and issuing of pretense minutes, pretense orders, and pretense judgments. Sustain, the case management system of the Court, was alleged as the enabling tool of the racket. The complaint, was claimed of high public policy significance, since David Pasternak, who was alleged in a series of complaints as a central figure in the enterprise, was former President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, former Member of the California Judicial Council, and former President of Bet Tzedek (“The House of Justice”) – a prominent Los Angeles Jewish/legal charity. Therefore, the complaint alleged that his conduct reflected widespread public corruption of both the California courts and the legal profession. Moreover, the complaint alleged that conduct of Samaan v Zernik was unique in documenting conditions, where the Los Angeles Superior Court was not only permissive and conducive, but also coercive of criminalities by financial institutions. The complaint alleged such conditions - collusion of judges, large financial institutions, and large law-firms in an enterprise - undermined any prospect of establishing effective banking regulation in the United States. The complaint quoted the official Blue Ribbon Review Panel (2006), which concluded that the Los Angeles Superior Court “must be investigated”, and highly decorated FBI veteran, Fraud Expert James Wedick, who opined (2008) “investigation should be immediately instituted”, as well as Congressional Inquiries on FBI and US Department of Justice by the Hon Dianne Feinstein, Senator, (2008, 2010) and the Hon Diane Watson, Congresswoman, (2008) in related matters. Complainant asked the US Department of Justice to institute such investigation and accord equal protection to all 10 million residents of Los Angeles County, California. Judges were previously prosecuted for racketeering in San Jose and San Diego, California, and in Cook County, Illinois. Judges are today prosecuted for racketeering in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Judges are also prosecuted in El Paso Texas, and large-scale corruption of the courts and the legal profession is under investigation in Florida. Senior Counsel Laurence Tribe recently warned of deteriorating conditions at the state courts in the US, comparing them to those of “third world” nations. Human Rights Alert is dedicated to discovering, archiving, and disseminating evidence of Human Rights violations by the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, and beyond. Special emphasis is given to the unique role of computerized case management and online public access systems in the precipitous deterioration of integrity of the courts in the United States.

Andre Birotte Jr., US Attorney, Central District of California. 221 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 By certified mail. By fax: 213-894-6269 Prof Laurence Tribe Senior Counsel US Department Of Justice Access To Justice Initiative TO THE US ATTORNEY, CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA, AND PROF LAURENCE TRIBE, SENIOR COUNSEL, US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, ACCESS TO JUSTICE INITIATIVE: Please accept instant Citizen’s Complaint by Joseph Zernik, PhD, and Human Rights Alert (NGO) against former Judge Patricia Collins, Judge Lisa Hart-Cole, of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Attorney David Pasternak (Pasternak, Pasternak, Patton), Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI) – a large financial institution, and others, listed below - for public corruption and racketeering in pretense proceedings on December 7, 2007, under caption Samaan v Zernik (SC087400). COMPLAINT A. General 1. What did the experts say about the justice system in Los Angeles County, California?
• • "Innocent people remain in prison" "...the LA Superior Court and the DA office, the two other parts of the justice system that the Blue Panel Report recommends must be investigated relative to the integrity of the system, have not produced any response that we know of..." LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel Report (2006) i "...judges tried and sentenced a staggering number of people for crimes they did not commit." Prof David Burcham, Dean, Loyola Law School, LA (2000) ii "This is conduct associated with the most repressive dictators and police states... and judges must share responsibility when innocent people are convicted." Prof Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean, Irvine Law School (2000) iii

2. What did Senior Counsel at US Department of Justice say about the state courts in the United States? • "On July 26, 2010, Laurence Tribe, Senior Counsel for the United States Department of Justice, Access to
Justice Initiative, delivered an important speech to the Conference of Chief Justices, challenging them to halt the disintegration of our state justice systems before they become indistinguishable from courts of third world nations." Prof Laurence Tribe, Harvard Law School (2010), per National Defender Leadership Institute iv

3. Complainants Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, resident of Los Angeles County, California Mailing Address: PO Box 526, La Verne, California 91750 Tel: 323-515-4583 Fax: (preferred) 323-488-9697 Email: (preferred) jz12345@earthlink.net 4. Complainants are not attorneys, neither are they represented by counsel in this matter Therefore, special lenience is requested in review of the complaint. In most cases, no sections of the code were referenced. Where errors were made, in reference to sections of the code, the US Attorney is requested

Page 3/14

to disregard such references to the code, and instead - review the facts alone, and apply the sections of the code as he deems fit. 5. Public Policy Significance The complaint holds unique public policy significance, since it documents conduct at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, which is alleged as a well-established racketeering enterprise. Such evidence was also documented in complaints, previously filed with the US Attorney Offices, linked below. Moreover, Attorney David Pasternak, alleged as central figure in the racket, is former President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, former Member of the California Judicial Council, and former President of Bet Tzedek (“The House of Justice”) – a prominent Los Angeles Jewish charity. Therefore, it is alleges that his conduct reflects widespread corruption of the California courts and the legal profession. Inherent in the case is also unique documentation of the patronage by some at the US District Court, Central District of California, of alleged enterprise at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles (see Related Court Actions and links, below). Finally, the case should be considered of high public policy significance, since it provides unique evidence of collusion in alleged racketeering by judges, large financial institutions, and large law-firms at the Los Angeles Superior Court. Following the Enron scandal, the US Congress passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (2002) to curtail fraud by large corporations and by counsel. Under the ongoing financial crisis, the US Congress passed the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act (2009). However, instant complaints documents conditions in Los Angeles County, California, where the Los Angeles Superior Court is not only permissive and conducive, but also coercive of alleged criminality by large financial institutions. Therefore, it is alleged that the complaint documents conditions, which undermine any prospect of establishing honest and effectual banking regulation in the United States. The complaint also documents serious alleged violations of Human Rights in the largest county court in the United States, serving the most populous county in the United States, and refusal of senior officers of the US Department of Justice to provide equal protection (see below). The complaint further documents the refusal of the US government to abide by its duties and obligations as a good-faith party to the Basel Accords on international banking (see below). 6. The Accused a) Attorney David Pasternak (Pasternak, Pasternak, Patton, LLP); b) Judge Lisa Hart-Cole; c) Former Judge Patricia Collins; d) Judge Jacqueline Connor; e) Presiding Judge Charles McCoy; f) Judge in Charge of Writs and Receiverships David Yaffe; g) Clerk of the Court John A Clarke; h) Court Counsel Fredrick Bennett; i) Attorney Richard Ormond (Buchalter Nemer, LLP); j) Liz Cohen – Senior Escrow Officer, Mara Escrow; k) Mara Escrow – a subsidiary of Old Republic International (ORI), and l) United Title Company. 7. General Claims Conduct of the accused at the Civil Division of the Court in the caption, referenced above, is alleged as including, but not limited to: a) Denial of Access to the Courts; b) Public Corruption; c) Deprivation of Rights Under the Color of Law;

Page 4/14

d) e) f) g) h) i) j) k) l)

Denial of the Human Right for Fair Hearings; Honest Services Fraud; Fraud; Mail Fraud; Real Estate Fraud; Falsification of Court Records; Conspiracy, Denial of due process of law, and Racketeering.

It should be emphasized that conduct in the civil courts, which is detailed in instant complaint, is not unique at all. Other pretense litigations at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, were detailed in previous complaints pertaining to Galdjie v Darwish – alleged as a prototype of real estate fraud by the Court, v Marina v Los Angeles County ( ) – a prime example of alleged false imprisonment by the Court, vi and Sturgeon v Los Angeles County (BC351286) – which undermines any prospect of future honest services at the Court. vii Conduct of pretense receivership by Attorney David Pasternak in Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) viii was opined as “fraud being committed” by a fraud expert James Wedick – a fraud expert second to none. Conduct of pretense receivership by Attorney David Pasternak was also the subject of complaints pertaining to Galdjie v Darwish (SC052737) and Karimi v Mithawaila (BD518503), ix and conduct of pretense proceedings to affect real estate fraud was alleged also in complaint pertaining to Shepard v Krage (09C03210). x Combined, such complaints provide only a glimpse of the alleged widespread nature of corruption and racketeering at the Civil Division of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Furthermore, in complaint against Judge Jacqueline Connor and others, linked below, it was alleged that only combined investigation of corruption at both the Civil and Criminal Divisions of the Court would allow to gauge the full scope of the corruption. It should also be emphasized that already in 2006, the official LAPD Blue Ribbon Review Panel xi opined and recommended that the Los Angeles Superior Court “must be investigated relative to the integrity of the system”. In 2008, Fraud Expert James Wedick, who had been decorated by US Congress, US Attorney General, and FBI Director opined that “investigation should be immediately instituted”. Nevertheless, no investigation of the Los Angeles Superior Court has been instituted to this date. One should also note the in a recent public appearance, Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe, in his capacity as Senior Counsel for the United States Department of Justice, Access to Justice Initiative, warned of deterioration of the state courts into conditions that were indistinguishable from those in “third world countries”. It is doubted that even in such statements Prof Tribe had full appreciation of the scope of corruption at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, and conduct of the US Department of Justice in refusing to investigate the Court. Therefore, instant complaint is also directly addressed to his office, with hope that his office would affect decision by the US Department of Justice to finally institute an investigation of the Court. 8. Expert opinions pertaining to instant complaint, and refusal of US government to provide protection a) Expert Opinions In early December 2007, Attorney David Pasternak engaged in critical states of conduct that was later opined as real estate fraud on the Beverly Hills property of complainant Joseph Zernik on behalf of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. Such opinion xii was issued by James Wedick, an FBI veteran, who had been decorated by US Congress, by FBI Director, and by US Attorney General for his accomplishments in fraud investigations. Mr Wedick also opined “investigation should be immediately instituted”. [Italics in the original –jz]

Moreover, in an informal letter, Mr Wedick indicated that FBI Special Agent, who had been assigned to the case, agreed with him that the case involved real estate fraud against Complainant Joseph Zernik. However, Mr Wedick indicated that the FBI investigation of the complaints would not proceed, since it would inevitably exposed the widespread corruption of judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court. xiii b) Senior officers in offices related to banking regulation refused to perform their duties in this matter. It should be particularly noted the SEC Chair MARY SCHAPIRO and Controller of the Currency JOHN DUGAN refused to act upon complaints. Most recently complaints were filed in this matter against Bank of America Corporation and its president, Brian Moynihan, alleging his direct involvement in racketeering at the Los Angeles Superior Court, first in his capacity as General Counsel of the Corporation, and later – as President. xiv It is proposed that refusal of the latter two senior US officers to perform their duties in this matter stemmed from realization that judges were directly involved in alleged criminalities in this case. c) Senior officers of FBI and US Department of Justice refuse to provide equal protection against alleged racketeering at the Los Angeles Superior Court Regardless of numerous complaints filed with FBI and US Attorney Office, starting January 2007, a full year prior to consummation of the real estate fraud in instant complaint, no protection was accorded to Complainant to this date. The US Attorney Office, Central District of California recently announced the re-establishment of its Public Corruption and Civil Rights Unit. However, to this date the Office refuses to even acknowledge receipt of complaints in such matters, linked below. Moreover, starting 2008, complaint alleging racketeering at the Court were filed directly with FBI and US Attorneys Office in Washington DC. The complaints requested equal protection in Los Angeles County, through enforcement of First Amendment rights – access to court records – to inspect and to copy, as re-affirmed in Nixon v Warner Communications, Inc (1978). The complaints claimed that it would be sufficient to enforce public access to Sustain to paralyze the racket in the Civil Division of the Court. Both offices refused to respond on the complaints. Consequently, Congressional Inquiries were filed in 2008 on both offices by the Hon DIANNE FEINSTEIN, Senator, and the Hon DIANE WATSON, Congresswoman. Assistant FBI Director for Criminal Investigations KENNETH KAISER, and then Director of US Attorneys Office KENNETH MELSON answered on the Inquiries. Consequently, complaint was filed in 2009 with Inspector General of US Department of Justice GLENN A FINE, alleging fraud on US Congress by KENNETH KAISER and KENNETH MELSON, in their responses on the Inquiries. The Office of Inspector General refused to respond on the complaint. Consequently, Congressional Inquiry were filed in 2010 on the Inspector General by the Hon DIANNE FEINSTEIN, Senator. Regardless, Inspector General GLENN FINE refuses to this date to respond on the complaint. 9. Conduct of the accused on December 7, 2007, and related records xv In early 2007, to accomplish his mission, Attorney Pasternak required collusion by Mara Escrow, a subsidiary of ORI – a large financial institution, in perpetrating fraud in conveyance of real estate title. However, the lawful owner, Dr Joseph Zernik, alerted Mara Escrow Senior Escrow Officer Liz Cohen that she was about to engage in real estate fraud, and therefore, Ms Cohen refused to collude with Attorney Pasternak and the Court.

On December 7, 2007, to overcome the problem, Attorney David Pasternak and others engaged in two pretense “ex parte proceedings” at two separate courthouses on the same morning, in efforts to coerce collusion by Mara Escrow and Senior Escrow Officer in the fraud: a. In the 1st December 7, 2007 pretense “Ex Parte Proceeding”, Attorney David Pasternak appeared as pretense “Receiver”, albeit, with no valid and effectual Appointment Order, with Attorney Richard Ormond (Buchalter Nemer, LLP), on behalf of Mara Escrow, before Judge Lisa Hart-Cole to request Court approval of various documents, including, but not limited to: i. “Grant Deeds”, which were later opined by Fraud Expert as “fraud”; ii. “Indemnity Agreement” for Mara Escrow – for future criminality, and iii. Gag Orders, to prevent pro se Defendant from communications in defense of self with escrow or with the title company, who were conspiring at the time with Attorney David Pasternak and the Court to perpetrate real estate fraud. The mere notion of conceiving and initiating such proceedings by Attorneys David Pasternak and Richard Ormond is alleged as serious abuse of rights under the color of law. The fact that they considered such idea feasible, and the fact that they eventually accomplished it, with full collusion by the Courts, indicates the impunity of the alleged racket. At the onset of the “Ex Parte Proceeding” Defendant filed Peremptory Challenge with Judge HartCole. In conduct that ensued, both Judge Hart-Cole and Attorney Richard Ormond refused to disclose the name of the attorney, or the party that he was representing in Court, as documented in the Court Reporter’s transcript. • Minutes as inserted in paper Court file Consequently, Judge Hart-Cole issued December 7, 2007 Recusal “Minutes”, which were also inserted in the paper Court file. The “Minutes” are alleged as fraud by Judge Hart-Cole on numerous accounts, including, but not limited to the following: i. The Minutes were served on one party only – Attorney David Pasternak; ii. The Minutes falsely listed in their title proceeding on matter that was never heard, concealing as secondary the Peremptory Challenge, which was the only matter heard by Judge Hart-Cole on that date; iii. The Minutes, as registered in Sustain – the Court’s case management system, show that Judge Hart-Cole secretly “disposed” of the proceeding altogether, and iv. The Minutes did record the appearance of Attorney Richard Ormond for Mara Escrow, albeit, under fraudulent Party Designation of “Interested Party”. • Minutes as registered in electronic Court file The December 7, 2007 “Minutes”, as recorded in the electronic Court file in Sustain – the Court’s case management system, show that Judge Hart-Cole effectively eliminating the proceeding from the electronic Court file record, by recording Date Minutes Entered as “00/00/00”. • Transcript The Court Reporter’s transcript is alleged as fraud for numerous reasons, including, but not limited to the fact that it failed to list the appearance of Attorney Richard Ormond for Mara Escrow, although such appearance was noted in the Minutes, as described above. The transcript, however, does record the refusal of Judge Hart-Cole to introduce Attorney Ormond by name and disclose the name of his client. b. In the 2nd pretense “Ex Parte Proceeding”, Judge Patricia Collins pretended to grant Attorney Pasternak’s requests, including, but not limited to the ones listed above, which were later opined as fraud. However, Judge Collins secretly created void registration for the proceeding in Sustain - the Court’s case management system. • Minutes as served No Minutes were ever served by the Court.

Page 7/14

• Minutes as recorded in electronic Court file Judge Collins did record December 7, 2007 “Minutes” in Sustain. The record is alleged as fraud on numerous accounts, including, but not limited the following: i. The “Minutes” were never served; ii. The Minutes were recorded with no Certificate by Clerk at all - deliberately void Minutes, for an “off the record” proceeding; iii. The “Minutes” included a false and deliberately misleading statement “Copy of said Order given to all parties”. No copy of the Order was given to Joseph Zernik at the Court. Moreover, as evidenced in the “Minutes” themselves, three other parties were not present in Court at all on that date. • Transcript The December 7, 2007 Court Reporter’s transcript of proceeding before then Judge Patricia Collins recorded Judge Patricia Collins introducing Attorney Pasternak as an “Ad Hoc Receiver”. The transcript also recorded then Defendant Zernik protest of the abuse of his rights, including, but not limited to abuse of Free Speech and Possession rights in such “Ex Parte Proceeding”. The transcript further documented Attorney Pasternak justifying the need for such proceeding to alleviate his shortage of funds. The transcript also recorded Defendant’s protest of the denial of access to Court records, the denial of opportunity to read the “Ex Parte Application” filed in Court that morning by Attorney Pasternak, the pretense enforcement of execution of a non-existent “Judgment”, the appearance of Attorney Pasternak as pretense “Receiver”, and the appearance of then unidentified counsel for unidentified party – Mara Escrow. The transcript recorded Judge Collins then pretending in open court to approve Attorney Pasternak’s requests. It should be noted that the Clerk of the Court John A Clarke refuses to this date to certify any of the Court’s pretense orders or the pretense judgment in the Samaan v Zernik (SC087400), as evidenced in declaration by legal services provider. xvi The refusal included, but was not limited to: a) Pretense August 9, 2007 Judgment by Judge Jacqueline Connor; b) Pretense November 9, 2007 Order Appointing Pasternak Receiver by Judge John Segal, and c) Pretense December 7, 2007 Order by Judge Patricia Collins, approving various records, including, but not limited to Grant Deeds, later opined as "fraud". The false and deliberately misleading nature of Court records in this Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) is further highlighted by inspection of the “Case Summary”, as published by the Court in its online public access system. The Los Angeles Superior Court routinely denies access to true court records, in general, and in particular to electronic court records in Sustain – the Court’s case management system. Instead, the Court publishes online “Case Summaries” – albeit, with a disclaimer that the “Case Summaries” are not court records. However, most lay persons, and even attorneys are left with little else to rely upon in following the conduct of litigations at the Court. The “Case Summary” of Samaan v Zernik would lead a reasonable person, and even an attorney to conclude that Samaan v Zernik, in general, and proceedings of December 7, 2007, in particular, were valid court actions. Therefore, the online public access system and the “Case Summaries”, in particular, would be deemed false and deliberately misleading upon review, and together with Sustain – the case management system of the Court – enabling tools of the alleged racket. d) The January 9, 2010 “Case Summary” still listed the disposition of the case as “Pending”, although Attorney Pasternak falsely pretended on December 7, 2007, and ever since, to appear as “Receiver” for enforcement of execution of an August 9, 2007 “Judgment”.

Page 8/14

e) The August 22, 2010 “Case Summary” listed the disposition of the case as “Dismissed - Other 03/27/2009”, although no legal foundation was ever found for such listing. Moreover, various records, proceedings, and rulings were falsely listed in the “Case Summary” at least until March 2010. 10. Additional records and conduct pertaining to appearances of Attorney David Pasternak as pretense “Receiver” Additional evidence for fraud and racketeering in pretense appearances of Attorney Pasternak as “Receiver” in Samaan v Zernik (SC087400), in general, was provided in a previous complaint against Attorney David Pasternak and others. xvii Additional complaint was filed with the US Attorney Office against Judge Jacqueline Connor, who instigated the alleged racketeering in Samaan v Zernik. xviii • Complaints were filed with law enforcement against financial institutions involved in the fraud in the matter Additional related records and evidence of fraud and racketeering in Court conduct in Samaan v Zernik was provided in complaints filed with FBI against: a) Countrywide Financial Corporation and its then President Angelo Mozilo, Bank of America Corporation, Brian Moynihan - its president, and others; xix b) Michael Libow of Coldwell Banker and Gail Hershowitz of Mara Escrow; xx c) Jae Arre Lloyd – a convicted felon, and Maria McLaurin of Bank of America Corporation; xxi d) Gary Perez and USC Credit Union, xxii e) President Masaki Tanaka and Union Bank. xxiii Combined, the complaints, all related to only a single real estate fraud by the Court, provide unique evidence of the tight relationship between corruption of the courts and corruption of several large and small financial institutions. 11. Additional evidence and records are provided in records linked below, in respective court files, and in complaints previously filed with the office of US Attorney, Los Angeles. 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. Please consider the records (linked below), as integral part of instant complaint. Additional evidence pertaining to instant complaint, which further supports the allegations, is held in the paper Court file of Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) and in the respective electronic court file in Sustain. The case as a whole is alleged as pretense litigation, and therefore, the records as a whole are claimed as evidence of racketeering by the Court. 12. Related Court Actions In March 2008, Joseph Zernik filed Complaint under cause of action of Deprivation of Rights under Color of Law against Judge Jacqueline Connor, who is claimed as the instigator of the racketeering in conduct of Samaan v Zernik as a whole. Others were also named as Defendants, including, but not limited to Judge Patricia Collins, Judge Hart-Cole, and Attorney David Pasternak. The US District Court conducted pretense litigation in Zernik v Connor et al (2:08-cv-01550), where summons were adulterated at the Office of the Clerk, where PACER docket was constructed by unauthorized court personnel, where the Clerk of the Court refuses to certify the docket as one that was constructed in compliance with US law and by authority of the Clerk, and where all minutes, orders, and the judgments, were issued and served with invalid NEFs (Notices of Electronic Filing). A separate complaint xxiv was filed with the US Attorneys Office, which alleged public corruption and deprivation of rights by US Magistrate Carla Woehrle, US Judge Virginia Phillips, and others, at the US District Court, Central District of California.

Therefore, it is alleged that some at the US District Court, Central District of California, patronized the racketeering enterprise at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. It is further alleged that absent such patronage, the racket at the state court could never have survived to this date. 13. Conduct, documented in instant complaint, is the culmination of efforts by the Los Angeles Superior Court, lasting several decades, to ambiguate procedures related to Judgment Books and Entry of Judgments and Orders Appointing Receivers – fundamentals of Due Process of Law. Fraud in operations of receiverships at the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles is claimed as part of a larger fraud scheme, relative to failure of the Court to maintain a Judgment Book and enter judgments and Orders Appointing Receivers of the Court as required by California Government Code § 69844.7 and California Civil Code §664 et seq. The Court published for several decades false and deliberately misleading Local Rules claiming that Judgment Books of the Court were maintained by the Clerk at the various Districts of the Court, while in fact no such Books were maintained by the Court for several decades. Presiding Judge Charles McCoy and Clerk of the Court John A Clarke also refused to correct such false Local Rules, or to disclose the true Local Rules of the Court regarding maintenance of Judgment Books and entry of judgments and orders appointing receivers. Court Counsel Frederick Bennett, alleged as a central figure in the racket, claimed with no authority at all that the Judgment Book of the Court today was the Microfilm Judgment Archive of the Court. Review of a large volume of records in the Microfilm Archive indeed revealed routine entry of divorce decrees. However, hardly any judgments of the civil courts were found entered in the Archive, and not a single order appointing a receiver was ever found in the Archive. Therefore, Judge David Yaffe – Judge in charge of Writs and Receiverships, must also be deemed central figure in the racket. Additional details of the alleged fraud in entry of judgments and appealable orders were provided in complaints, previously filed with your office against judges and the Los Angeles Superior Court, linked below. 14. US government is failing to perform its duties and obligations Conditions now prevailing in Los Angeles County are therefore alleged as serious violations of duties and obligations of the United States pursuant to ratified international law – the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Furthermore, conditions documented in the complaint are therefore claimed as failure and refusal of the US government to abide by its obligations as a good faith party to the Basel Accords. 15. Alleged widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles is drawing both national and international awareness. 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) and Dr Joseph Zernik, xxv alleging widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California. The report further documented the refusal of senior officers of the US government to abide by its duties and responsibilities pursuant to ratified international law – in failure to accord equal protection to the 10 million residents of Los Angeles County. As part of the UPR process, US, UK, Germany, and France based blogs were created,xxvi where over 17,000 readers from some 85 nations were recorded so far. A Scribd site was created for Human Rights Alert in January 2010, which has recorded over 110,000 reads, with over 500 reads a day in recent months.xxvii Additional news sites, where Dr Zernik and Human Rights Alert routinely issue press releases, attracted tens of thousands of additional readers. xxviii

Furthermore, an online archive was established, xxix documenting the alleged abuses of rights. The archive, not a user’s friendly site by any stretch of imagination, has attracted thousands of visits per month from nations worldwide, totaling of close to 100,000 visits in 2010 alone. xxx Online petitions were more recently launched, calling upon the United Nations Human Rights Council to engage in honest and effectual review of the US justice system, as part of the first ever, November 2010, Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the United States. xxxi 16. Remedies are requested by the US Attorney, Central District of California, including, but not limited to equal protection of all 10 millions who reside in Los Angeles County. US Attorney, Central District of California, is herein requested to provide the following remedies: a) Equal protection of the Constitutional, Civil, and Human Rights of all 10 millions who reside in Los Angeles County under US and ratified international law, by putting an end to pretend litigations at the Los Angeles Superior Court by compelling the Courts to comply with California, US, and ratified international law. b) Enforcement of First Amendment rights and US Supreme Court decision in Nixon v Warner Communications, Inc (1978) in Los Angeles County, California, by compelling the Los Angeles Superior Court to permit public access – to inspect and to copy court records - including, but not limited to the Register of Actions, Audit Data in the Registers, and paper court files. Access to such records is now routinely denied. c) Enforcement of Fair Hearings and Due Process rights in Los Angeles County, California, by compelling the Los Angeles Superior Court to publish honest, valid, and effectual Local Rules of Court, including, but not limited to rules pertaining to entry of judgment and maintenance of Books of Judgments, as required by California Civil Code. d) Investigation and, if necessary, prosecution of the accused, in particular Attorney David Pasternak, in re: allegations of public corruption and deprivation of rights under the color of law. It should be noted that the request in instant complaint for US investigation of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, is a repeat of the recommendations of the official report of the Blue Ribbon Review Panel (2006). xxxii e) Equal protection for complainant Joseph Zernik, who sustained damages exceeding $5 millions to this date. f) Return of property at 320 South Peck Drive, Beverly Hills, to his possession, as its lawful owner. 17. Request for due process in acceptance, acknowledgement, and review of complaints at the US Attorney Office, Central District of California. As previously noted, the web pages of the US Attorney Office and information received from staff of the Office, would lead a reasonable person to conclude that at best a vague and ambiguous procedures were established at the US Attorney’s Office for acceptance, acknowledgment, and review of complaints at the newly re-established Public Corruption and Civil Rights unit. It is therefore explicitly requested that the US Attorney Office, Central District of California, accord due process to instant complaint: a) That the complaint be accepted as such; b) That the US Attorney Office acknowledge receipt of the complaint and issue a reference number for the complaint; c) That the complaint be duly reviewed, and d) That following review, a response be provided, verified by an authorized person. Respectfully, Dated: August 22, 2010 Joseph Zernik, PhD

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=cf3_1282167436 Blue Ribbon Review Panel Report (2006) http://www.scribd.com/doc/24902306/ xii Opinion of Fraud Expert James Wedick on fraud by Attorney David Pasternak on behalf of the Los Angeles Superior Court http://www.scribd.com/doc/24991238/ xiii August 21, 2008 letter by Fraud Expert James Wedick http://www.scribd.com/doc/29713733/ xiv June 11, 2010 Complaint filed with SEC and Controller of the Currency against Bank of America Corporation and Brian Moynihan, its president, alleging racketeering at the Los Angeles Courts. Both offices received numerous complaints in recent years. Both offices refused to enforce the law, or even provide valid response on the complaints. http://www.scribd.com/doc/32907453/ xv Record are provided herein pertaining to the specific conduct alleged as fraud, public corruption, and racketeering pertaining specifically to conduct of Samaan v Zernik on December 7, 2007: 1. December 7, 2007 Ex Parte Application by Attorney David Pasternak: The record is alleged as fraud in its entirety, since the evidence shows that Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) was never a matter litigated at the Superior Court of California, only a pretense. Moreover, Attorney Pasternak filed such record as part of his pretense of being “Receiver” – with no valid and effectual Appointment Order. http://www.scribd.com/doc/25692714/ 2. December 7, 2007 Court Reporter’s transcript of proceeding before Judge Lisa Hart-Cole: The transcript records pretense proceedings, which were later “disposed” by Judge Hart-Cole. The transcript also recorded refusal of Judge Hart-Cole to disclose the name of Attorney Richard Ormond (Buchalter Nemer, LLP), or the party, which he pretended to represent in his fraudulent appearance. The transcript itself is alleged as fraud, since it failed to list the appearance of Attorney Richard Ormond for Mara Escrow, subsidiary of ORI in the proceeding, which was recorded never the less in the fraudulent Minutes. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36250596/ 3. December 7, 2007 Minutes as served and inserted in Court file by the Court of Lisa Hart-Cole, copied from Court file in Samaan v Zernik (SC087400): The Minutes are alleged as fraud on numerous accounts, including, but not limited to the following: a) The Minutes were served on one party only; b) The Minutes falsely listed proceeding on matter that was never heard as its title, concealing as secondary the Peremptory Challenge, which was the only matter heard by Judge Hart-Cole; c) The Minutes, as registered in Sustain – the Court’s case management system showed that Judge Hart-Cole secretly “disposed” of the proceeding, and d) The Minutes did record the appearance of Attorney Richard Ormond for Mara Escrow, albeit, under fraudulent Party Designation of “Interested Party”. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36236417/ 4. December 7, 2007 Minutes as recorded by the Court of Lisa Hart-Cole in Sustain - the Court’s case management system: The Minutes are alleged as fraud on numerous accounts, including, but not limited to the following: Whereas the Minutes, as served by the Court listed Date Minutes Entered as “12/07/07”, the Minutes, as recorded in Sustain, the Court’s case management system were disposed, by recording Date Minutes Entered as “00/00/00”. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36250157/ 5. December 7, 2007 Court Reporter’s transcript of proceeding before then Judge Patricia Collins: The transcript records pretense proceedings, which were later invalidated by Judge Collins, and for which deliberately invalid Minutes were issued. The transcript records Attorney David Pasternak justifying the ex parte proceeding as such, since he wanted more money. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36251175 6. December 7, 2007 Minutes as recorded by the Court of Patricia Collins in Sustain: The record is alleged as fraud on numerous accounts, including, but not limited the following: a) It was recorded with no Certificate by Clerk at all, in fact, deliberately void Minutes, of “off the record” proceedings; b) It was never served and never entered in Court file; c) It included a false and deliberately misleading statement “Copy of said Order given to all parties”. However, as noted in the Minutes themselves, three of the purported parties in the pretense litigation were present in Court at all: Pretense Plaintiff Samaan, Pretense Cross Defendant Coldwell Banker, and Pretense “Non Party” Countrywide. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36249842/ 7. December 7, 2007 pretense Order as served by Attorney David Pasternak. The record is alleged as fraud on numerous accounts, including, but not limited the following:

The case as a whole is alleged as fraud and racketeering, the Clerk refused to certify any of its records; Attorney Pasternak falsely appeared as “Receiver” – with no valid and effectual Appointment Order; Judge Collins invalidated the proceeding in her false registration in Sustain; The “Order” was served as an insert in a pretense “Notice”, but was never even listed as an exhibit in the “Notice”; The “Notice” falsely claimed that the “Order” was served in open court, and The Proof of Service fraudulently listed Countrywide, which routinely appeared in the case, under party designation of “Non Party”, and falsely listed Bryan Cave, LLP as its counsel of record in the case. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36235815/ 8. December 7, 2007 pretense “Ex Parte Proceedings” at the Court of Judge Lisa Hart-Cole and then Judge Patricia Collins – Declaration of Joseph Zernik http://www.scribd.com/doc/36237504/ 9. December 7, 2007 false and deliberately misleading registrations in Sustain – the Court’s case management system. See #9, below, pages 179-184 of the Register. 10. Register of Actions of Samaan v Zernik (SC087400). The record as a whole is alleged as fraud by the Court, and one that includes false registration of so many proceedings, that it is sufficient, in and of itself for indictments on racketeering of all participants at the Court in all law-firms listed in the case. http://www.scribd.com/doc/29712101/ 11. Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) online “Case Summaries” (NOT court record). The Los Angeles Superior Court routinely denies access to true court records, and instead publishes online “Case Summaries” – albeit, with a disclaimer that the “Case Summaries” are not court record. However, most lay persons, and even attorneys are left with little else to follow up the conduct of litigations at the Court. The “Case Summary” of Samaan v Zernik would lead a reasonable person, and even an attorney to conclude that Samaan v Zernik, in general, and proceedings of December 7, 2007, in particular, were valid court actions. Therefore, the online public access system and the Case Summaries in particular would be deemed false and deliberately misleading upon review, and together with Sustain – the case management system of the Court – enabling tools for racketeering. a) The January 9, 2010 “Case Summary” still listed the disposition of the case as “Pending”, although Attorney Pasternak falsely pretended to enforce the execution of an August 9, 2007 “Judgment”. http://www.scribd.com/doc/24990634/ b) The August 22, 2010 “Case Summary” listed the disposition of the case as “Dismissed - Other 03/27/2009”, although no legal foundation was ever found for such listing, and various records, proceedings, and rulings were falsely listed in the “Case Summary” at least until March 2010. http://www.scribd.com/doc/36263568 xvi Declaration of Jose Salazar, DDS, Legal Support Services regarding refusal of the Office of the Clerk to certify court orders, judgment in Samaan v Zernik, including, but not limited to: a) Pretense August 9, 2007 Judgment by Judge Jacqueline Connor. b) Pretense November 9, 2007 Order Appointing Pasternak Receiver by Judge John Segal c) Pretense December 7, 2007 Order by Judge Patricia Collins, approving Grant Deeds, opined as "fraud". http://www.scribd.com/doc/36265972 xvii Complaint against David Pasternak and other pertaining to alleged racketeering and pretense appearance as “Receiver” in Samaan v Zernik (SC087400) http://www.scribd.com/doc/33354641/ xviii Complaint filed with US Attorney Office against Judge Jacqueline Connor – for racketeering and deprivation of rights http://www.scribd.com/doc/35592511/ xix FBI Complaint against Bank of America Corporation, for financial institution fraud and extortion, racketeering at the courts http://www.scribd.com/doc/33971099/ xx FBI Complaint against Michael Libow of Coldwell Banker and Gail Hershowitz of Mara Escrow, for financial institution fraud and extortion http://www.scribd.com/doc/31772791/ xxi FBI Complaint against Jae Arre Lloyd – a convicted felon, and Maria McLaurin, Branch Manager of Bank of America Corporation for financial institution fraud and extortion http://www.scribd.com/doc/31725728/ xxii FBI Complaint against Gary Perez, President, and USC Credit Union, for financial institution fraud and extortion http://www.scribd.com/doc/31799262/ xxiii FBI Complaint against Mr Masaaki Tanaka and Union Bank, for financial institution fraud and extortion http://www.scribd.com/doc/31347227/ xxiv Complaint against US Magistrate Carla Woehrle, US Judge Virginia Phillips and others at the US District Court, Central District of California, for public corruption, deprivation of rights http://www.scribd.com/doc/34194403/
