Ed Asner Requests Update On Richard I. Fine's Condition In L A Central Men's Jail

EDWARD ASNER'S HUMANITARIAN APPEAL FOR INMATE FINE


Los Angeles, CA After reading the latest reports from Full Disclosure Network® actor Ed Asner has requested updates on the condition of Richard I Fine Prisoner ID #1824367 in the L. A. County Central Men's Jail. For the past two weeks Mr. Fine has complained of the broken dental plate that has prevented him from being able to chew his food. The condition was reported to the jail's medical infirmary and two complaints and an appeal were filed by Mr. Fine to no avail.

HELD IN SOLITARY "COERCIVE CONFINEMENT"
Richard I. Fine has been held in L.A. County jail since March 4, 2009 in solitary "Coercive Confinement" for contempt of court following his challenge of Judge David Yaffe for having accepted illegal payments from L A. County who was involved in the case Marina Strand Colony II Homeowners Assn. vs County of L.A. In spite of U S Supreme Court precedent In Re Farr holding that persons cannot be held in "coercive confinement" for more that five days in contempt of court cases, Mr. Fine remains in jail for almost eleven months.


ACLU MONITORING COUNTY JAILS
Apparently County jail operations are now more concerned with who will pay for the dental repairs than they are with fixing the problem. When Ed Asner learned of the situtation, he called on the ACLU to look into this matter and asked Full Disclosure to keep him updated from our side of the story. As a result of court cases, and an agreement with L. A. County, the ACLU has been monitoring the L. A. County Jails to prevent inmate abuse and assure proper medical attention to the inmates. Ed Asner was assured by Ramona Ripston, Executive Director of the ACLU, that they would look into the matter.


FULL DISCLOSURE'S UPDATE FOR ED ASNER (1-23-10):
Dear Ed:
I got a call at 10 p.m last night, at home, from a Lieutenant at the L A County Central Men's Jail, as he promised to update us on Mr. Fine. He told me the following:

1) Mr. Fine is able to eat even with a broken dental plate, contradicting Mr. Fine.
2) The jail Medical clinic cannot fix the dental plate
3) Mr. Fine will have to pay to have it fixed.
4) No plans have been yet scheduled to deal with this problem.


And, there appears to be no sense of urgency on the part of the Sheriff's Department to do anything to accommodate the dental problem, as it has now been over two weeks since the dental plate broke and was first reported.
There is a belief that Mr. Fine and or his supporters could raise the money to fix the dental plate. As I mentioned, I have talked with Executive Assistant to the Sheriff, Commander Jim Lopez, a Lieutenant and Watch Commander's Deputy in Men's Central Jail about this and the telephone problem over the last two days.

Last night (Fri 1-22-10) I got two voice mail messages from Commander Lopez at 7:48 p.m. and 8:16 p.m. he said that he talked to the Sergeants involved in oversight and they have solved one problem, but gave no specifics, and that they still have not resolved the dental problem and that he will be back to me on Monday.

I will continue to notify you if I hear from Mr. Fine and or the Sheriff's Department and hope to hear from you or Ramona of any developments from your end.

Thank you and the ACLU for your interest and concern. It is greatly appreciated by all who are watching this sorry saga play out. I hope that the clerical problems with the Ninth Circuit will be addessed as well, as Mr. Fine filed a petition weeks ago for an En Banc hearing before the full Court to appeal the Court's decision to deny his petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus. I will be at my office this afternoon at 310-822-4449 and checking my messages frequently.

Best regards,

  1. Like Iran! If you did not know this is “enlightened” LA, you would think Mr. Fine is being incarcerated in Iran. This is a shame on LA County. This makes me so sad and angry. Where are the County Supervisors? What can we do to help?

  2. Corrupt judges within Los Angeles Superior Court? This is nothing new but getting people to believe these judges exist is the problem. Aviva K. Bobb and Candace Beason are among the others who don't care about justice and take advantage of the old and weak. See avivakbobb.com for a sad story how Superior Judge Aviva K. Bobb would not allow medical treatment for Lee Peters. Had she allowed doctors to act she would alive today. LEE IS DEAD due to a corrupt and shameful judge who allows dishonest lawyers to steal.
    My hat is off to Richard Fine and is family for doing something. We all need to as our families and friends are at state.

  4. We've exhausted all legal means to rectify this criminal activity, maybe civil unrest, or reverting to "old west" justice,(lynchings) may be in order. Our forefathers gave us the DUTY to remove a tyrannous government, and replace it with a just one, it's up to us now. I've been following this case since before March 4, and I know that every "law enforcement" agency, from the FBI, to the USDOJ (which both lied in an official senate inquiry)to the governor, president Obama, the sheriff, the commission on judicial performance, various law schools, even the Basil committee, all refuse to act. This isn't about "coercive confinement", it's about human rights violations, being inflicted in the United States of America. This IS homegrown terrorism, right in our "justice system", and our homeland security joke, doesn't even realize it. "All enemies, foreign, and domestic", is how it reads.

  5. The USDOJ and CA DOJ lack of authority and their reckless intent to keep allowing harm to Atty. Fine reflects the tyrannical crooked gov't with which Americans are subjected too! This event is highly traumatic for Atty. Fine as mental health effects the physical body. In the views of Traditional Chinese Medicine, worry effects the teeth. This can be reflected in Atty. Fine's present dental problems. Both DOJ's know without a shadow of a doubt the corruption and fraud in these courts are so out of control as is the fraudlent organzied crime US Judiciary and gov't judicial agencies. Its interesting how they only discuss the SEC, but can't face reality about the U.S. Courts. This abuse is heinous and AG Brown needs to be ousted right along with a variety of parties who have not taken action to free Attorney Fine from the courts running this country. If AG Holder doesn't start respecting the rights of Americans he equally needs to be removed from office. Schwarzenegger a joke in office. Cheryl Kennedy

  7. Aviva K. Bobb is a criminal and should be locked up for life. Candace Beason is one of her band of thiefs. This new judge that has Richard in jail is also a con artist who was caught in the act. Google these people and you'll find they are all guilty of crimes against the people who fill their pockets with tax payers money any way they can. Murder is not out of the realm for these scum bags. Then they quietly go to ARC to provide poor judicial services for those that don't know any better.
    I've seen avivakbobb.com and it's the same story as my parent who Bobb stole from.
