VIDEO: YAGMAN SAYS SUPREME COURT IS CESSPOOL & HACKS RUN LOS ANGELES


Los Angeles, CA — Civil Rights Attorney Stephen Yagman is featured in a controversial eight minute Internet video on the Full Disclosure Network™ where he takes on the entire justice system at http://www.fulldisclosure.net/flash/yagman.php speaking disparagingly of his fellow attorneys and of the California Supreme Court which he says is basically a “cesspool” consisting of six hacks and one wonderful justice.”

Yagman told Emmy Award winning host Leslie Dutton that “elected officials should have taken control of the LAPD and seen to it that it functioned properly, without brutality and without corruption.” He said that when they didn’t perform like that the elected officials became potentially liable. He claimed to have filed 1600 lawsuits against the LAPD and the City of Los Angeles because the politicians have failed to take control of the Police Department.

He said “solving the (LAPD) problem is in the hands of the people whom we elect in our representative form of democracy, the Mayor and the City Council members. They have never done it and they’re not doing it now. When asked if it was possible to have responsible government in Los Angeles when the City Council is dominated by a one political party he said he thought the City was “controlled by a mélange of just kind of hacks”.

When Yagman was asked if he would compare himself to a Johnny Cochran or a William Kuntsler, he uses the “f” word to express his opinion and later states that he has never spoken foul word in a court room but that privately, he has a very foul mouth.

The video clips contained in this preview were selected from a one hour cable television interview with Mr. Yagman that has been featured on 40 cable systems and the Internet. Full Disclosure Network™ programs are billed as “the news behind the news” since 1992 and in 2001-2002 was presented with a local public affairs Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for the series “L.A.’s War Against Terrorism” featuring then LAPD Chief Bernard Parks, L.

School Corruption Sparks Citizen Revolt


Los Angeles, CA. — Leaders of a California citizens revolt in South Orange County are featured in a nine minute FULL DISCLOSURE™ video blog, describing the school corruption which has sparked their campaign to recall all seven members of the Capistrano Unified School District. The video will be launched on the Internet 24/7, world-wide starting Monday, December 5, 2005.

Citizens from the communities of Alisa Viejo, Coto De Caza, Dana Point, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Niguel, Los Flores, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano gathered 140,000 signatures in their communities. Their primary complaints about the District Trustees and the Superintendent is, they say, the arrogance, deceit and deliberate concealment of public documents and financial agreements while spending public monies lavishly on themselves. The final straw was when the District proceeded to build a new $35 million Administration building while the children are being taught in decrepit and run down portable classrooms.

Featured in the video blog are leaders from the citizens group called CAPO for Better Representation, comprised of the parents of children attending school in the District, as follows: Chairman Kevin Murphy, a financial services executive, Tom Russell, corporate transactional attorney, Mark Neilsen, software executive, Jennifer Beall, interior designer.

The following actions of the CSUD Trustees and Superintendent were cited by the group as motivating factors for the recall campaign:

  • Failure to provide transparency in financial transactions
  • Failure to comply with state laws governing school construction and the environment
  • Failure to disclose conflict of interests on contracts, bidding and school site selection
  • Failure to conduct the public’s business in open meetings and with public input
  • Failure to give public notice of Trustee actions creating millions in public debt

Hosted by Leslie Dutton, the Full Disclosure Network™ public affairs television programs are featured on 40 cable systems and the worldwide Internet website www.fulldisclosure.net. In 2002 the program was presented with a public affairs Emmy Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences entitled “L.A.’s War Against Terrorism” which was presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
