Nearly three years after Lynne Yates Carter taught lawyers how to earn more in fee awards at a lawyer training led by Judge James Towery and Justice Mary Greenwood at the Santa Clara County bar association , Lynne Yates Carter was disbarred and has now reportedly died. Her death is rumored to be connected to COVID-19 and contact tracing of the county’s dirtiest divorce lawyers has begun.
Yates- Carter was celebrated in the local family law community for getting the wife of lawyer Richard Falcone sanctioned over $1 million dollars and declared vexatious in the Falcone v Fyke divorce case. This case became the flagship for divorce lawyers and family court judges operating a criminal enterprise out of the area’s family courts where lawyers who are part of a criminal enterprise convinced clients to use a fake judge, claiming a lawyer overseeing a divorce instead of a duly elected judge ” will be cheaper, faster and more private”, Minor’s counsel appointments are pimped out to local judges in return for appointments to act in the best interest of the children whose parents get caught in crosshairs of this criminal enterprise.. Lynne Yates Carter and her corrupt associate, Tracy Duell Cazes. wrote the playbook on this corrupt practice. Duell- Cazes continues to benefit by acting as a private judge where she can earn $5 million a year doing very little work..
Contact tracing related to Lynne’s death has turned up far more than coronavirus super spreaders.. Emergency orders in the county have closed the courts and county buildings. These closures have reduced opportunities for lawyers to hold secret meetings that historically have provided an important tool for the most corrupt lawyers using the public courthouse to conduct their criminal conduct. This conduct has now drawn the attention of federal investigators who are now looking into family court cases where Yates Cater and her associates, including Duell Cazes and Kathryn Schlepphorst, appear to be at the center of the scandal.
In what appears to be a deathbed confession, Yates Carter revealed corruption where divorce lawyers and family court judges have turned a blind eye to child abuse and money laundering in attorney trust accounts. . Once she was disbarred Lynne Yates Carter reportedly warned Elise Mitchell and Sharon Roper that the COVID-19 crisis could significantly impact the enterprise as real property equity in the area dries up and court business essentially grinds to a halt. Further, Shelia Pott , a loan manager, recently lost an important appeal and is worried the loans she wrote for area lawyers and judges as kickbacks for favorable rulings in her own divorce case are now on the radar of federal investigators at the DOJ.
Jason Pintar has also been exposed for his role in the darkest part of the enterprise after it was discovered that cases Pintar was involved in with Constance Carpenter, Nat Hales, Richard Roggia , Laura Perry and Annie Fortino appear to be related to sex trafficking rings revealed in cases before Judge Mary Ann Grilli in 2014 and Judge Towery in 2017. Pintar appears to have teamed up with Laura Perry and Annie Fortino who have connections to the Gilroy Police and local politicians.
