PETITION FOR A WRIT OF CERTIORARI ___________________________________________________________________ LEON R. KOZIOL, pro se Office of Leon R. Koziol, J.D. 1518 Genesee Street Utica, New York 13502 (315) 796-4000

PETITION FOR A WRIT OF CERTIORARI Petitioner, Leon R. Koziol, respectfully urges that a writ of certiorari be granted to remedy constitutional violations of monumental impact to parents and children across the country. He asks that the sua sponte order of the New York Court of Appeals which dismissed a mandamus and prohibition action be reviewed because state courts have abused their parens patriae powers to a point of rendering meaningless our most basic human right to a parent-child relationship. This right has been overrun with impunity through insulated domestic relations laws and processes which force parents to fight over their own children in order to secure “custody” and “support” awards. These awards are mandated through a statutory “child support” formula in every parenting case, even where, as here, both parents were found to be sufficiently self sustaining. Increasingly they are being exploited as a pretext for supporting third party entities and government itself. By the time these abusive, biased and recurring “custody” and “support” processes complete their course, Petitioner’s children, aged two and three at the time when an uncontested divorce action was commenced five years ago, will have reached maturity without any meaningful participation of their wholly fit natural father in their respective lives. The very foundation of our family structure and the productivity of an entire nation are being jeopardized by the broad sweep of these laws, processes and attendant privacy violations. OPINIONS BELOW The sua sponte order of dismissal by the New York Court of Appeals was entered on September 21, 2010. It is reproduced in its entirety in the Appendix
