L.A. Sheriff Baca Sued By Full Disclosure Network® Over Media Manipulation

Leslie Dutton vs. L.A County Sheriff Leroy Baca
U.S. District Court for the Central District of California


Los Angeles, CA The Full Disclosure Network® is seeking a Federal Court Order to declare as unlawful the actions of L.A. County Sheriff Leroy Baca and the County Sheriff’s Department. They are denying freedom of the press and free speech rights by refusing access to an inmate interview with judicial critic Richard I Fine who is being held in L. A. County Central Men’s jail for contempt of court since March 4, 2009.

FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS SOUGHT:
A complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California by Sterling Norris, of the Judicial Watch organization on Wednesday, January 27, 2010. The case, Dutton vs. Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy Baca (CV10 0595) includes a demand for jury trial. Here is a copy of the Complaint or it is available at this URL: http://www.scribd.com/doc/26004386

INTERVIEW WITH FULL DISCLOSURE®. NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN
According to the complaint, Emmy Award winning producer/host Leslie Dutton of the Full Disclosure Network submitted numerous requests to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Headquarters to arrange an on-camera interview with inmate Richard I. Fine, as part the on-going cable television series entitled “Judicial Benefits & Court Corruption”.

SHERIFF BACA FAVORS COMPLIANT MEDIA?
The complaint reveals that the Sheriff’s Department and Sheriff Baca did allow L.A. Times reporter Victoria Kim to interview Mr. Fine at the jail on May 22, 2009, which resulted in an article published in the Los Angeles Times on June 7, 2009. Additionally, ABC’s Nightline producer Terri Whitcraft was allowed to bring cameras for videotaping an inmate interview with another inmate (other than Mr. Fine) located in the L.A. Central Men’s jail in September 2009.

SHERIFF BACA BLOCKING INFORMATION FROM PUBLIC:
It is claimed that the refusal of Defendants L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and Baca to allow Dutton to interview Mr. Fine at the L.A. Central Men’s jail “is harming the ability of Dutton (Full Disclosure) to obtain and disseminate information to the public about Mr. Fine’s various legal claims, his continuing, indefinite confinement; his physical condition, and the conditions of his confinement.”

  1. This is a conspiracy to commit crimes against the people of California. Between SBX211, Mr. Fine, the ninth circuits decision to uphold that judges can dismiss cases in which they're named as a defendant, and the conduct of these judges, breaking laws to protect each other, and the ones that know about this behavior, yet refuse to act, are just as guilty as the rest. Along with law enforcement agencies that refuse to act, the legislature, the governor, the sheriff, LA county board of supervisors, judges, the committee on judicial performance, are all guilty of conspiracy, and so is the rest of the government, just by being part of the crime ring, makes you just as guilty. California is run by the judicial mafia.

  2. I cannot not believe that this man is still in jail and no one in authority is doing anything. Remember that is not those that commit these injustices, but those that stand idly by and do nothing. A letter campaign needs to be started, sent to the highest authorities, and keep sending them until someone acts. If you bombard their offices with letters they will have to respond. Our country is not based in monarchy, but a democracy. King Yaffe needs to be removed from the bench.
