According to a source connected with newly elected Orange County DA Todd Spitzer, the FBI has been called in to investigate several court clerks, judges and divorce attorneys for obstructing justice in CPS, divorce and custody cases following the transfer of court executive David Yamasaki from Santa Clara County in early 2017.
Orange County has been fraught with jailhouse snitches and federal investigations of the county’s traffic court cases, Recent emails leaked from the DA’s office indicate family courts are being investigated for covering up money laundering, drug enterprises and sex trafficking rings.
Ambulance chasing is to personal injury lawyers as case rigging is to California’s family law attorneys. These lawyers chase divorces involving private businesses with crimes to conceal and family homes with millions of dollars in equity.
Divorce can put companies at risk. Inflated expenses, cash funds, and tax evasion secreted away from shareholders can be exposed when an ex spouse’s lawyers and accountants dive in to determine the value of community property.
According to sources involved with the investigation, since 2000 , small groups of lawyers have been rigging cases to get before certain elected judges or appointed private judges.
Emails discovered in a private email account of Mr. Yamasaki and a Silicon Valley divorce lawyer known as “Black Tulip” indicate large payments flowing to lawyers, family court services and experts who are handsomely paid for court appointments.
Cases appear to be rigged when court clerks assign a case to a judge during an exparte request, or when cases are originally assigned. Clerks investigated during the 2015 traffic case scandal who were not indicted, appear to have moved either to divorce cases, or into private businesses benefiting from the criminal activity. These individuals troll new divorce filings and in some cases work with lawyers before the case is filed to get it before a corrupt judge. The ” clients ” have no idea this is occurring such that a disqualifying 170.6 challenge can be lodged.
SILENCE THE SPOUSE
A critical component of this enterprise involves the emotional, financial and physical abuse of former spouses who may know too much . Secret surveillance, personal computer hacking and cell phone Stingrays are regularly used to discover what a spouse knows. If that spouse is determined to be a threat based on an ability to expose a former spouse’s secrets, the enterprise moves in to have reports issued to a judge that that claim a former spouse is ” crazy” . ” abusive ” or mentally unfit to parent children, or to remain in the family home. Stripping women in particular of their home and their children is so destabilizing, it changes the game for the enterprise.
Staffers in Family Court Services, or CPS, appear to issue reports favorable to the enterprise such that the report can be rubberstamped by a judge, which helps the enterprise avoid detection.
Spouses busy fighting move out or supervised visitation orders are too fragile to challenge the financial aspect of a divorce case.
Before mandatory JCC, or emergency screening hearings occur, the enterprise has already rigged the outcome of custody decisions with judges working for the enterprise in return for future employment in private judging, mediation and arbitration once they leave the bench
The FBI investigation has focused on Dr. Rebecca Bailey, and her reunification camp following news reports by NBC Bay Area. Parents scouring the courthouses for other victims of the enterprise have also become investigators best sources, as few DA offices are prepared to properly investigate family courts and related cases.
SECRET AGREEMENTS- FLEAs (Family Law Elite Attorneys)
Divorce lawyers calling themselves ” Elite” Family Law Attorneys (FLEAs) have been known to law enforcement, and the courts since 2000. Little has been done to stop these lawyers, whose work and misdeeds remain largely underground.
FLEAs operate regular legal practices in the area of family law, where 80% of cases are quickly resolved or settled. For the other 20% , FLEAs identify a spouse with secrets to hide and focus on destroying the other spouse in a divorce case in order to protect secrets could result in criminal charges. This conduct serves to protect clients who are vulnerable to a criminal enterprise orchestrated to protect the secrets from the IRS, the DOJ and the FBI.
Businesses in the marijuana industry, transportation, professional sports organizations and tech are the main flow of cash to the FLEAs. Bad cops collecting cash and turning away from drug and sex traffickers act as a freeway for cash payments and bribes to elected politicians, judges and private divorce lawyers. Above board these lawyers are paid with the sale of the family home, or rental properties, but behind the scene far more money is moving in illegal payments.
Well paid lawyers are loyal and protective of the criminal enterprise.
In Orange County, as designed first in Santa Clara County, lawyers, minor’s counsel and private judges are assuring payments of cash to pay off loans on the properties and investments of the judges whose disclosures are carefully monitored by the press.
CALIFORNIA’S REAL ESTATE HOLDS THE KEY
Divorcing spouses are often surprised to learn a former spouse is willing to sell real estate to pay legal costs in effort to drag out cases. And many spouses are surprised to learn courts willing to sell these houses to pay the enterprise, rather than preserve community property as the law provides.
Victims of the criminal enterprise report high conflict custody disputes left them ill prepared to recognize the scheme to sell the family home.
Most alarming has been the discovery that elected judges in Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Diego, San Francisco, LA and Orange County regularly fail to disclose their real properties on the required From 700. Worse are cases involving private judges with real estate holdings that are not required to be disclosed.
Emails between Black Tulip and Court CEO David Yamasaki indicate Rebecca Bailey has been one of bad actors assisting the enterprise in laundering money, abusing children and silencing the parents who dare to speak up. It is estimated that Mr. Yamasaki has orchestrated the illegal transfer of billons of dollars of California home equity in the state’s family court cases caught up the web of a criminal activity designed to separate children from their families, and sell off the family home in order to operate.
