Judges Paid Off By County
When asked if David Hernandez would get a fair trial considering that all the judges are getting illegal payments from L. A. County, Richard Fine says he must get a change of venue to another county in order to get a fair trial.

City Attorney Enlisted To Protect Judges
Richard Fine explains that the "Dirty Judicial System" demonstrated that the Judges consider themselves above the law and beyond the control of the citizens. The Legislature attempted to de-criminalize the illegal payments but were unsuccessful when they enacted Senate Bill SBX2 11 which is now being challenged as "Unconstitutional" by the Commission on Judicial Performance.

Rico Act
According to Wikipedia the RICO ACT is a United States Federal Law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows for the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them, closing a perceived loophole that allowed someone who told a man to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually do it.

Judicial Crimes
Richard Fine described each of offenses involving 90% of California Judges among them are:

  1. Repeatedly taking illegal payments from parties appearing before them
  2. Denial of Due Process by failure to disclose those payments to litigants
  3. Obstruction of Justice
  4. Misprision of Felony
  5. Extrinsic Fraud

Responsibility For Disclosure
During the video Richard Fine reveals who are the officials responsible for informing litigants of the illegal payments received by parties who are involved in the case. He says the JUDGE and the COUNTY COUNSEL have an obligation to disclose the illegal payments (to all litigants, civil and criminal and their attorneys).

Court Showdown On Ballot Fraud: Preview Video 2 Minutes Here

Segment #1: Judge OK’d Fraudulent Charter Ballot
David Hernandez, a Los Angeles civic activist, tells Full Disclosure Network in this six-segment TV series of his legal challenge against Ballot Fraud, known as Prop. “R”. He is waging a war against a "Culture of Corruption" that has overtaken Los Angeles lobbyists, County and City elected officials and Superior Court Judges. Hernandez describes how these forces are destroying election integrity and the Democratic process. He exposes the fraudulent ballot language that misled voters who thought they were limiting the Council terms; when they were actually extending Council terms to three instead of two, and approving Lifetime Public Pensions for the 15 Council members without disclosing the enormous liability to the taxpayers.

Segment #2: Move To Set-Aside Judge Yaffe’s Void Order
When David Hernandez learned that Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe, the judge who approved Proposition “R”, had received $860,000 from L A County, he decided to re-file his challenge to throw out the fraudulent Proposition that had been "certified" by the County Board of Supervisors. Hernandez points to the alarming fact that the politicians can control the outcome of the elections and manipulate the rules to keep themselves in power. The State Legislature gave Judge Yaffe immunity from criminal prosecution for taking money from the County, but Hernandez says judicial ethics required him to disclose this conflict and step down from the case.

Segment #3 - Pensions, Judicial Conflicts and County-Run Elections
Hernandez describes the corruption in Los Angeles County that came to the attention of voters when it was learned that State Superior Court Judges were illegally getting payments (benefits) from the County. Judges taking money from the County should not sit on cases involving the County, especially County-run elections.

Segment #4 - Ballot Fraud Squeezes More $ For Council Members
Judges who receive the payments that violate the State Constitution are sitting on cases involving Constitutional issues. David Hernandez describes how the City Council and the lobbyists crafted the fraudulent ballot language. The L A City Council is one of the highest paid in the country.

Segment #5 - Election Lawsuit Against County/City
David Hernandez describes how Prop "R" was a poster child of the "Culture of Corruption". Grassroots voter groups mustered a challenge to the Ballot Fraud, which became a David-and- Goliath match-up. Hired by lobbyists and politicians, crafty lawyers shifted their tactics to outwit the grassroots public interest lawyers, ignoring laws, ethics and the Constitution.

Segment #6: County Payments Corrupt Judicial Actions
Dave Hernandez explains how County payments to Superior Court Judges (Yaffe) is a conflict and his decision supported Prop R. The Judge had been given retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution for taking illegal payments from the County of L.A. When the Legislature enacted SBX2-11 in an attempt to legalize the County payments, the Judges were still conflicted. The Commission on Judicial Performance is challenging the Constitutionality of the legislation. But the Judicial conflict is undermining the Justice system and now the Democratic process. Judges should not sit on cases where they have received money from a party to the case (L.A. County) as it violates the law and Judicial Canons of Ethics.
