Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s Proposed Gang Injunction is a tool for Gentrification

OAKLAND CITY ATTORNEY JOHN RUSSO’S PROPOSED GANG INJUNCTION IS DECEPTIVE AND WRONG

Oakland City Attorney John Russo in his recent plea to implement a Gang Injunction in Oakland’s Fruitvale District hastily used the recent criminal charge of Attempted Residential Robbery upon Fruitvale resident and named Gang Injunction defendant Anthony Garcia.  In their latest arguments in support of why Oakland needs another Gang Injunction,  Garcia’s arrest was used to help sway Judge Robert Freedman to grant their requested relief. Turns out Garcia’s arrest and the resulting charge were frivolous. Prosecutors learned the statement given by Garcia’s neighbor to police was fraudulent; the neighbor said he had no idea what he was signing onto. Whether limited English or police coercion lies at the crux of the matter, the complaint given to police was recanted and charges were dropped. Not so fast, a serious charge, remains on Garcia’s record. With overzealous police and prosecutorial error at work against Garcia and others, can Judge Freedman honestly decide in favor of granting outgoing Oakland City Attorney John Russo another injunction? More to come on Freedman and why his court was likely selected by Russo. The San Francisco Chronicle’s Henry Lee reported the error in the Sunday paper, 5-15-11.

While a conviction is a more serious mark on one’s record than a recanted charge, a charge can sometimes be just as damning. It is all some potential employers rely upon to differentiate when hiring prospective employees. This mistake is not uncommon but apologies are most rare. A District Attorney should normally rely upon Probable Cause in deciding whether to file charges against an alleged criminal but is protected with immunity when a mistake is made. Never mind the six weeks Garcia spent in jail behind this frivolous arrest.  A criminal record could prevent Garcia, 29 from certain employment opportunities for the rest of his working adult life. He now has the daunting task of trying to recapture some semblance of normalcy in his life. Just ask Osha Neumann of the East Bay Community Law Center in Berkeley about the ongoing need for a “Clean Slate” program. His organization is consistently serving individuals who want to move on in their lives and yet because of criminal records cannot seem to do so otherwise.

At the heart of a Gang Injunction is usually an overreaching District Attorney and unfettered police power determined to gentrify a targeted area. At first blush what would appear an efficient crime fighting tool to clean streets and rid our communities of gang activity deceptively paves the way for real estate developers to curry favor with bankers to invigorate a sluggish housing market. This reality proves all too costly as Anthony Garcia’s rights are trampled upon. Contemplate the future untold costs of this stain on his record. In her best selling book, “The New Jim Crow,” author and attorney Michelle Alexander outlines the inability of former convicts to ever regain full citizenship. With criminal records in tow, an ex-con is unduly prevented from regaining full citizenship which includes voting in most states. The U.S. Constitution and the tenet that one can pay their debt to society and receive full re-integration is now a myth.

States bear a costly burden in creating a permanent underclass of fringe citizens.  To illustrate, in California a bill is currently before the legislature that aims to reduce our inmate population by granting medical parole to inmates who no longer pose a threat to society. If this bill passes, our state will save millions. It is simple, inmates with severe medical issues and the attendant costs to care and police them could be eligible for medical parole. However, tough on crime advocates want all prisoners to rot in prison no matter how high the price.Kudos to Mark Leno for introducing this bill because this model is so last century and is not working.   However, the Smart on Crime policy Attorney General Kamala Harris propagates is the better approach because it is too easy to throw the baby out with the bath water. We cannot expect different results using the same failed policies. Gang Injunctions have been tried in numerous jurisdictions only to fail. As Oakland fights rising crime, a sluggish real estate market and too few jobs or opportunities for its youth, Gang Injunctions are a waste of scarce taxpayer dollars that could be put to better use. To be sure Gang Injunctions are a sure way ameliorate problems on the surface but leave untold consequences. Just ask Garcia and the other named defendants who will not find it easy to recover.

In this unfortunate marriage between the Oakland Police Department, District Attorney and the Oakland City Attorney, which entity will attempt to remedy this huge transgression upon Garcia or the public trust? Most agencies will not admit mistakes even when made public. As Garcia picks up the pieces of his life, a public apology is in order but waiting for public officials to do the right thing is quite another matter. Time might be better spent questioning the many Affidavits signed by OPD officers as part of the  City Attorney’s case for the Gang Injunctions. Oakland could learn something from it’s neighbor across the bay. In San Francisco dozens of criminal convictions were recently overturned after the alert San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi discovered the faulty procedures used in crime laboratories to gain illegal convictions.

A conviction much like a Gang Injunction, is only as legal as the foundation upon which it rests. Some Oakland Police Officers are not strangers to lies, innuendos or deceit; just check the many lawsuits that continue to be paid out to unfortunate victims at the hands of rouge cops. This is why the Affidavits signed by OPD officers should have been the first place Garcia’s defense attorney Siegel should have looked when preparing his defense. Who is Siegel and why is he representing Garcia and others to their peril? Early on Siegel admitted that he made a mistake causing over fifty defendants to lose representation. Though a procedural error, all it takes for an Injunction to be granted is the conviction of one defendant. When KPFA radio broadcaster and producer Nadra Foster was beaten by twelve or so Berkeley Police Officers a couple of years ago, it was Siegel’s father, Dan Siegel also an attorney and KPFA station board member who lauded KPFA management for calling the police on her while her daughters looked on. She was told to leave the building and did not understand the reason for the request. She is still suffering injuries as a result of the severe beating. Siegel appears to have overlooked pages of Affidavits signed by several OPD officers, many of which live outside of Oakland, swear that these named defendants are gang members who committed crimes, that they are menaces to society and they should be punished. Curious to note however, the Affidavits themselves are repetitive – cut and pasted text with recycled facts according to Oakland Police Officer Frank Morrow who refused to sign on when presented with one. The entire process is flawed as ever which is probably why a Federal Judge called a meeting with Police Administration and the City of Oakland in April 2011 to force the terms of the settlement intended to clean up that department that followed the infamous “Riders” scandal and trial.

As Oakland City Attorney John Russo leaves Oakland for Alameda with two Gang Injunctions possibly three under his belt and a couple of minority owned businesses he was instrumental in closing, he is poised to develop the Alameda Naval Air Base. The three Alameda City Council Members who elected Russo after he campaigned and donated money to help get them elected have their work cut out in trying to diminish their direct conflicts of interest. Alamedans should have taken cues from the corrupt Southern California town of Belle and its City Manger, Robert Rizzo who was charged with taking 5.5 million from working class residents.  The small minority owned business in Oakland and Alameda shut down by incoming Alameda City Manager John Russo that used to help people prepare legal documents now runs a food donation program that provides free food to the hungry.

As for Oakland, the fate of the Fruitvale District and its proposed Gang Injunction now rests with Judge Robert Freedman who is no stranger to controversy. Once subject to disbarment by the Judicial Council of California, the Administrative Agency charged with holding judges honest was once cited for filing false Affidavits and received probation. Apparently this was not enough to place him on the fringes of society but what of Garcia and the North Oakland residents and all the others subject to the whims of society’s current displeasure of disposable immigrants and people of color in general? If Garcia is to be considered more than a pawn for real estate developers; his case is a clarion call for the masses to wake up.

Gang Injunctions are part of a larger dilemma; class warfare, immigration, equal protection of the laws, civil rights and the tolling that unfettered police power and gentrification has upon society. An Oakland City Council meeting is scheduled for May 17, 2011 [May 17 marks the anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights victory that ended U.S. Apartheid, Brown v Board of Education] which could heavily influence the outcome of the next court hearing, scheduled for May 24, 2011.

Yoshi’s- San Francisco

MAY 1, 2011 8:00 PM.

Yoshi’s- San Francisco
1330 Fillmore Street
San Francisco CA 94115

“This spiritual love child of Sade and D’Angelo mixes sweet soul vocals, jazz funk instrumentation and hip hop rhythms by underground Bay Area beatmasters. Goapele can kick it in the streets as in the lounge.”
Rolling Stone
Goapele brings an infusion of fresh energy and a classic, yet new sound to R&B music with her sophomore set, Change It All.
The Oakland, California-based songstress broke onto the Bay Area music scene in 2001 with her ethereal EP, Closer, and the follow-up full length album, Even Closer. Released on her family-owned record company, Skyblaze Recordings, the album’s mix of soulful grooves and thought-provoking lyrics introduced the world to a multi-faceted artist and songwriter, known as much for her social and political activism as for her lush romantic ballads.
“I grew up,” Goapele explains, “inspired by a tradition of soulful singers like Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Bob Marley, and Miriam Makeba, people who created timeless music and positive change in the world. I’m also part of the hip hop generation, and my influences continue to grow, so my music has become a blend of many musical traditions.”
Critics from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Essence, Vibe, and a host of others, hailed the songstress as an emerging artist to watch and heralded Even Closer as an album that was ahead of its time. The inspiring title track, “Closer,” notched 1’s on radio playlists from San Francisco to LA to DC to Baton Rouge, and as of August, 2005, four years after its initial release, was 1 at the two largest urban stations in Detroit.
Goapele followed up the release of her album debut by hitting the road and taking her serene — yet inspiring — sound to the masses, both stateside and abroad. Time and again, the singer wowed sold-out crowds with her emotionally-powerful songs, energetic spirit, and electrifying shows.
While Goapele garnered the support of music critics and fans, a host of fellow musicians and celebrities–including The Roots, Talib Kweli, Magic Johnson, Prince and Stevie Wonder–came under the spell of her music, style and sensibility. “I’m very excited to get the support of artists I’ve long admired,” she says.
For her new album, Goapele returned to her Bay Area roots to craft an artistically challenging sophomore set inspired by her recent experiences both in and out of the industry. The album was recorded largely at her Skylight studios in Oakland with a combination of old friends Jeff Bhasker, Mike Tiger, and Amp Live, and fresh collaborators like the production team Sa-Ra Creative Partners (Jill Scott, Bilal), veteran producer Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera), Bay Area hip hop producer Bedrock (E-40, the Team) and fellow soulster Dwele.
“It was really important to me to work with the people who helped me with my first album,” Goapele says of her long-term and frequent collaborators. “We know where each other is coming from, so there’s already a strong foundation to create from. And we’ve all come along way since we made “Even Closer”. Jeff [Bhasker], for example, co-wrote and produced the title track of The Game’s album, ‘The Documentary,’ last year, so I was really excited to come back together in the studio with them and share our new skills and experience.”
The result is a collection of love songs and politically and socially inspired songs that remain true to Goapele’s firmly planted soul roots while allowing her to branch out in a number of exciting, new directions. Songs like the emotive “Darker Side Of The Moon” and “Love Me Right,” with its electro-pop funk, show Goapele taking aesthetic risks while staying true to her signature sound.
“What I am happy about was that I don’t feel like any of the collaborations were forced,” says Goapele. “They were connections that were already there, and we were just waiting for the right time to work together.”
Goapele collaborated with Linda Perry on “Darker Side Of The Moon,” a ballad that reflects her ability to travel far beyond the borders of traditional R&B while strengthening the core values of sweet soul music.
“I met Linda at one of my shows in LA,” says Goapele of the collaboration with Perry, “and we talked about the possibility of working together. Although I was a fan of her music, I really didn’t know how our styles would mesh, but I’m really proud of what we created together. ‘Darker Side’ was inspired by Pink Floyd, who I had recently become a fan of and had been a favorite of Linda’s for years.”
The granddaughter of German holocaust survivors and South African grandparents who lived through apartheid, Goapele knows the importance of giving back time, energy and resources to the community and the planet. “I’ve been involved in community organization since I was 10, so it’s naturally integrated into my music. One of the reasons I wanted to be a songwriter in the first place was so I could sing lyrics that I believed in and that come from my heart. I draw from my own experience and the experiences I’ve watched others go through. I want my music to truly represent me, instead of trying to fit stereotypes that women in this industry are encouraged to fit into.”
The title track, “Change It All,” started with a song idea,” says Goapele. “I was feeling disempowered and frustrated with the people who were elected in 2000, and then re-elected, and frustrated about the disappearing support for music and art and resources that are being taken away from our local communities in order to fund a war that many of us don’t believe in.”
In the spirit of Goapele’s interest in positive change, she and Skyblaze founded an online community that shares its name with her album. ChangeItAll.org presents Goapele’s musical message, highlights political and social change-makers, and provides a forum for Goapele’s fans and others to network and create ways to promote action, creativity, courage and positive growth for people and communities everywhere.
“In talking to the team at Skyblaze, we started thinking, ‘What if we used this opportunity to create a tool for other people to connect, ‘” she adds. “So, instead of looking at what’s wrong in the world, let’s look at what changes are already happening and use it as a way for people to organize around those things.”
For a singer whose name means ‘to move forward’ in Sitswana, a South African language, her new album, Change It All, proves that enlightened change can be a positive force in the world of music and beyond. Note: Goapele is pronounced Gwa-pa-lay.

Friday, April 22, and Sunday April 24, 2011 8:00 PM.

Tank is one of the most recognizable names in modern R&B, known for vivid storytelling and sensual love songs. He’s an icon in the making, with four albums and eight Grammy nominations under his belt. He’s also a singer who carries the torch of masters like Marvin Gaye and Al Green, while redefining R&B for a new decade. For singer/songwriter/producer Tank—about to release his Atlantic Records debut Now or Never, his first album in three years, and the one he describes as his most confident yet—the secret is simple. He remains true to who he is, as a man and an artist.
“My music is the real me,” says Tank. “I’ll either live by that or I’ll die by that in this business, but I’ve got to be me.” He’s famous for sexy yet relatable love songs that are at once thoroughly modern and yet steeped in the sounds of classic soul. Though fans know and love Tank for smash hits like “Maybe I Deserve” and “Please Don’t Go,” they may be surprised to learn that he is also behind such chart-toppers as Rubben Studdard’s “Change Me” and Omarion’s “O.” What’s more, Tank served as an associate member of the hit-making production team, The Underdogs, with further credits including the smash soundtrack to the 2006 musical film adaptation of Dreamgirls (in which he also made a cameo). Since releasing his previous album Sex, Love, & Pain in 2007, Tank took a moment to step out of the spotlight, but not necessarily out of the studio. He formed the Los Angeles-based production company Song Dynasty, and began shaping the sound of modern R&B with songs for a diverse roster of artists including Keyshia Cole, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, and Keri Hilson. Though he has enjoyed crafting hits for these artists, Tank is ready to step into the spotlight yet again, and returns with an incredibly personal collection. “I put a lot of my personal business into my music because people relate to it. I sing based upon the things that I’ve been through. I don’t just sing about the pain, I sing about getting through it. Whether I’m singing about sex, relationships, or the occasional party, the songs are still about classic R&B themes.”
Poised to release his fourth studio album Now or Never, Tank is ready to share the intensely intimate themes his fans have come to love, even as he prepares to show an entirely new side of himself. “The sound of this new album is still the traditional R&B formula, but sonically it’s very current,” says Tank. His first single, “Sex Music,” perfectly illustrates his new sound. The high-energy track lives up to its name with a spacey, shuddering beat. Produced by Song Dynasty with Harvey Mason Jr. (Dreamgirls, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake), “Sex Music” is sure to appeal to die-hard Tank fans.
“We’re going to keep pressing forward with this R&B thing,” promises Tank. During the process of bringing Now or Never to life, he’s experimented with new technology and new collaborators, even as he explores the themes that have always moved him. “Emergency” is an emotional ballad with a sense of humor, comparing a woman’s desire to a four-alarm fire. “You Mean that Much” is a soaring, orchestral anthem. “Can I Make Love”, says Tank, “is self-explanatory… I’m known for having songs that give you an opportunity to not say much. All you need is a little eye contact, and it’s on.”
These timeless songs of love, lust, and loss take cinematic tone in the hands of Tank, as he crafts imagery that is uniquely tangible and real. Perhaps it’s his new love of acting that has deepened his storytelling. Tank recently graced the screen in The Preacher’s Kid, and he has been studying acting, though he promises that music will continue to be his first love. “We have to take this stand now because R&B is slowly becoming a lost art,” explains Tank. “R&B music is the thing that connects people.” Though he loves a fantasy party scene as much as any man, Tank writes about the real, everyday emotions and situations that people relate to because, as he says, “we’re meant to move people with this music, and I want to be part of that movement.”
It’s been an incredible journey since Tank was an undiscovered artist with a dream, penning “Maybe I Deserve” in the basement of his mother’s Maryland home, on “an MPC and two keyboards.” The single would go on to dominate urban radio in 2001, when Tank released his gold-certified debut album Force of Nature. Though he has enjoyed remarkable successes throughout his career, Tank considers Now or Never the album when “it all came together.” The title doesn’t just refer to the urgency he feels within R&B as a whole, but also the growth he’s done over the years as an artist. Now re-emerging with a new team and a renewed confidence in his music, Tank is ready to have these songs heard.
“Everything I’ve been through has prepared me for this moment right now. I’ve got a new deal, new energy and new people around who are just as excited about the album as I am. Everything I’ve learned over the years as a producer, writer and artist have gone into Now or Never.”

A List Celebrities Comps for Kentucky Derby, May 5-7, 2011

If you are or have “A List” Celebrities that would like to attend the Kentucky Derby, May 5-7, 2011you may be able to attend as a select V.I.P. The “A Lister” could receive: air transportation or Private Jet service from major U. S. cities, hotel suites and accommodations, ground transportation, VIP tickets to the Derby, special V.I.P. guest invitations to the exclusive events,
Contact us ASAP with Celebrity bio for consideration.

Millionaires Row

Throughout the years of the Kentucky Derby, the race has had a special appeal to the celebrity set. The rich and famous that mingle among the Derby Day crowd add a unique dimension to the spectacle of the “Run for the Roses.”

VIP Access

One of the first celebrity sightings dates to 1877 when famed Polish actress Helena Modjeska attended the third running of the Kentucky Derby. In the 1945 book, Down the Stretch, it was noted that Modjeska was impressed by the Derby but even more charmed by the mint julep to which she was introduced by Churchill Downs founder M. Lewis Clark following the race.

Terrell “T.O.” Owens and Friends at the Derby

Over the years, a stream of celebrities from film, music, sports, politics and wealth have been drawn to the Derby. On at least one occasion, a celebrity with a more notorious background was the talk of the Derby. The 15th renewal in 1889 brought bank and train robber Frank James to Louisville. The brother of famed outlaw Jesse James and a leader in their outlaw gang, Frank was on hand to watch Spokane take the victory over favored Proctor Knott.

Although most of the rich and famous that attend are guests of prominent ticket holders, the Derby has also attracted an impressive roster of celebrity racehorse owners. The group has found that the thrill of running their horses in the Kentucky Derby is as moving as any accomplishment in their professional careers.

During the 1990s this group of celebrity owners grew to include: musician MC Hammer, 1992 Dance Floor, 3rd; composer Burt Bacharach, 1994 Soul of the Matter, 5th, and 1995 Afternoon Deelites, 8th; music producer Berry Gordy, 1994 Powis Castle, 8th; film producer Albert Broccoli, 1994 Brocco, 4th; New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, 1997 Concerto, 9th; and former NBA and current University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino, 1998 Halory Hunter, 4th, and 2001 A P Valentine, 7th.

A direct descendant of England’s Epsom Derby, the Kentucky Derby has been attended on four separate occasions by British royalty. The first came in 1930, when Edward George Villiers Stanley, the 17th Earl of Derby and a representative of the family from whom the term Derby was derived, became the first member of the English nobility to attend. Prohibition was in effect at the time and Lord Derby expressed his disappointment in not being able to sample a mint julep. “You have a great many advantages I should like to copy for England,” Derby said, “but prohibition is not one of them.” Derby was followed in 1951 by the Duke of Windsor, who had renounced the British throne in 1936 so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

The 100th running of the Kentucky Derby in 1974 brought Princess Margaret and her husband, Lord Snowdon. The most recent visit by British royalty came in 2007, when Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II attended with her husband, Prince Philip.

Eight U.S. Presidents have witnessed the Derby and marveled at the pageantry and spectacle of the famed event. Future President Harry S. Truman was reported as the first and was followed in 1952 by Lyndon Johnson who attended as a Texas senator. In 2000, future President George W. Bush, who would win the election that same year, was on hand for the 126th running of the Derby with his father former President George Herbert Walker Bush. Only Richard M. Nixon attended while serving in office. He had visited in 1968 as guest of Kentucky Governor Louie B. Nunn and commented that if he was elected President he would return to the 1969 Derby. That year also attracted two future presidents Gerald R. Ford and Ronald Reagan. No other President has witnessed more Derbys than Ford. Beginning in 1977, Ford and his wife Betty attended almost every Derby for 10 years as guests of longtime friend John Galbreath, a former Churchill chairman of the board. In 1983, for the 109th Derby, two past Presidents and one future president were in attendance. Ford was joined by Jimmy Carter, the Democrat who had defeated him in 1976, and then Vice President George Bush, who would win the 1988 presidential election. In 1999, Al Gore joined the list of vice presidents that attended the Derby. That list includes: 1931, Charles Curtis; 1937, John Nance Garner; and 1958 Alben Barkley.

Black Pro Stars Fight City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

MEDIA ADVISORY

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!
    The leak of information on Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony in witness affidavits for the Oakland Gang Injunction litigation is turning into a flood as there appears to be truth in the allegation. It has been rumored that witnesses complained that the affidavits were prepared for their signature without their approval containing inaccurate information, misleading facts, and mis-characterizing statements that were maliciously, willfully and intentionally false. Witness could not change the affidavit and felt they were slighted and perhaps retaliated against when they complained about it. There were other complaints about Russo’s tactics in recent matters as well. 
    The crooked City Attorney was involved in fabricating and planted that fabricated evidence in the al-Hakim insurance case file, gave the case file to the defendants for nearly a year, and then gave the altered case file to a judge for trial without notifying the court!
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim filed a complaint with Congresswoman Barbara Lee, State Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, Alameda County Supervisor Kieth Carson, Oakland California Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindheim, Oakland City Auditor Courtney Ruby, Oakland City Councilpersons Desley Brooks and Larry Reid’s offices against Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez; former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; former Oakland City employee Pat Smith; Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski; Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Annette Bening’s brother Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; for constructing fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planting that evidence favorable to the defendants in the case files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts.

“Video of Oakland City Attorney Gives Defendants Case File, Doesn’t Tell Court or Plaintiff’s- Given To Stephan Barber and Law Firm Ropers Majeski”

    This comes on the heels of a very embarrassing, very public spat with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Russo taking personally abusive verbal shots at each other with Russo scorning the mayor for what he called a risky legal relationship with another attorney and Quan firing back at Russo for releasing his legal advice to the media before discussing it with her.  
“Russo Tends to Attack by Press Release” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan
    “The problem is that John Russo tends to attack by press release,” Quan said, and complained that he issued his letter while she was still in Washington, D.C., where she attended U.S. Conference of Mayors meetings and also met with White House officials.
    Quan said Russo had created a conflict of interest by releasing his advice to the media when he did. “As the City Attorney giving advice to the Mayor, he has the duty of confidentiality and the duty of loyalty to his client. He broke that confidentiality by his actions,” Quan said in a written statement. “This is exactly why the Mayor’s Office and the City Council Offices have considered seeking independent, outside counsel. The City Attorney is the City’s only attorney,” Russo wrote in the letter he released. 
    Quan denied sharing any confidential city information with an attorney and friend who has been advising her, saying City Attorney John Russo’s suggestion that she may be spilling secrets was “frankly, insulting.”
That claim is false according to him, as Russo did not bring his concerns to Quan privately before alerting the media — Russo argued in a letter he sent to Quan, other city leaders and local media that the city attorney is the mayor’s only permissible attorney, so any information Quan shares with anyone other than Russo and those in his office — is not protected and can be subpoenaed, threatening the city’s standing in a host of legal scenarios and taking on another attorney, especially one connected to a fight against the city, is breaking the City Charter and creates a conflict of interest. 
    “We have a city attorney who is elected and so sometimes has his own political agenda,” Quan said. 
“I’m caught in the middle, and I’m sorry about that.” 
    “This is a uniquely obnoxious violation of the charter because he’s in the middle of this,” Russo said. “I should be able to brief (Quan) on the strengths and weaknesses of our cases. If she’s going to turn around and give that to our opponents, how am I supposed to do my job?” “What the mayor has done here,” Russo added, “is put my office in a very awkward position where we’re not sure we can give confidential information to Mayor Quan. You should never be in that position with the CEO of the corporation.” “Violation of the City Charter is a crime,” Russo wrote in closing. “It is now incumbent on you to uphold your oath to defend the Charter.” 
    Quan, a longtime adversary of Russo from his days on the Council, feels concerned as the public see’s Russo has overstepped his boundary by pursuing the injunction without endorsement from the city council or the mayor in his continuing quest to be the De-Facto mayor. There is a question about what is the authority of the city attorney to bring these cases without the authorization of city council and the Mayor.”

al-Hakim, Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe to Help Poor, Under Served Youth

al-Hakim has mobilized attorney’s to represent these poor, under served youth and secured ALL-Americans, NFL All-Pro, NBA World Champions, North Oakland residents, Oakland Tech High School and U. C. Berkeley classmates Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe along with several native Oakland celebrities to join national celebrities in this fight! Through the collaboration of the individuals, Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”, Lynch’s Fam1ly F1rst”, the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, and others, we will provide the much needed alternatives to these profiled youth to succeed in life and not be eliminated from it because some developers want their families property and them out the neighborhood. 

Here’s some links to Leon Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”

and Marshanw Lynch’s “Fam1ly F1rst”

Here’s a link to Marshawn’s run in the Seahawks upset NFL Western Division Playoff game victory between World Champion New Orleans Saints against Marshawn’s Seattle Seahawks that has been called the GREATEST RUN IN NFL PLAYOFF HISTORY! 

Not to be out done, here is Leon’s Boston Celtics Championship Special on ABC-TV

WE MUST ACT NOW to end this travesty ASAP!

Oakland Marijuana Ordinance
There’s also a marijuana ordinance in front of city council that is endorsed by “Johnny Potty” Russo. He picked up that handle because of his penchant for doing video interviews in the restroom “potty” with another man, not to mention the weed endorsement. Does the citizens of Oakland really want a crooked City Attorney who drives around with his kids in the car without their seat belts on, wants to legalize smoking weed and gives video interviews in the bathroom with another man? The unfortunate part about this episode is Mayor Quan’s adviser has also been busted for marijuana so everything is up in smoke!
    A court hearing that could result in the implementation of the injunction is scheduled for February 16, 2011 before admitted and convicted liar, the embattled Judge Robert Freedman.

Judge Robert Freedman’s Misconduct Warranted His Removal from Office
    al-Hakim filed a formal complaint on April 11, 2008 and April 14, 2008 with both the Judicial Council and Superior Court against Judge Tigar for his attempt at provoking al-Hakim at a side bar during trial. al-Hakim received a one sentence response dated September 26, 2008 from Victoria Henley stating that “your submission does not provide a basis for commission proceedings”. al-Hakim received a letter dated April 15, 2008 from then Presiding Judge Yolanda Northridge acknowledging receipt of the complaint referring the matter to the Supervising Judge, Robert Freedman for review but has gotten no response as promised. 
    No one should be surprised because Judge Freedman has had his own well documented problems with honesty by willfully and intentionally filing false, perjurious and deceiving documents and affidavits regrading the timeliness in the administration of his duties in order to get paid and was issued a public reprimand. 
    In June 2007 The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly censured Alameda Superior Court Judge Robert J. Freedman for violating rules of conduct by failing to decide cases on time and falsely swearing that he was keeping up with time limits. 
Judge Freedman’s misconduct was of such gravity as to warrant his removal from office, the commission said, but the presence of mitigating evidence justified reducing the punishment to a “severe public censure.” You can read and/or download the article on Judge Freeman’s Censure at: http://www.box.net/shared/5n0tt72rbt
    The commission adopted factual findings made by a panel of special masters, who found by clear and convincing evidence that Freedman delayed rulings in 21 of the 23 cases over which he was charged in a notice of formal proceedings last May. 
It also agreed with the panel that Freedman, as accused in the notice, regularly signed and submitted false salary affidavits to the county during times when he was aware his rulings were overdue. He has a checkered past in al-Hakim’s case as well. 
    At one hearing in that matter he openly stated bias, prejudice, voiced a fixed opinion of al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakimis convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review.

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
    Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?

The Merits of The Gang Injunction
    The University of California, Berkeley – School of Law’s Center for Criminal Justice cites nationwide statistics that overwhelming prove Gang Injunctions are ineffective in all jurisdictions.
The following are but a few reasons cited by the legal community on why Russo’s proposed injunction should not be granted:
·        At a time when California’s budget is in a record crisis, does Oakland have resources to waste on an injunction that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to enforce yet will not bring about positive crime reduction results?
·        The injunction would increase the distance between police and communities, does not focus on rehabilitation, reasons why youth join gangs, jobs or education which youth of our state so desperately need. Study after study has shown that rehabilitation is over ninety percent effective for this age group.
·        A federal judge who is monitoring Oakland police reforms heavily criticized the police department at a hearing and threatened to take it over, the Tribune reported. Judge Thelton Henderson, who is monitoring the OPD because of the Riders scandal, threatened to put the department in “receivership.” If that were to happen, the judge would appoint an overseer who would have power over Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts. The judge is upset that the Oakland Police Department has still not instituted the police misconduct reforms that it agreed to several years ago. A Legal Settlement is a contract – breach of which by OPD opens the city up to even more money damages.
·        In light of the above, if Russo has his way, the police will undeservedly regain power; usurping Federal power, creating a “Fiefdom” for Russo. A failed police department does not deserve to continue down a path of destruction – that is why the Federal Government stepped in to begin with. If the Rider’s Settlement is not given effect – the entire trial was for naught -yet another waste of taxpayer dollars.
·        The named defendants in the injunction are guilty until proven innocent. This turns the US Constitution upside down. An injunction is simply not necessary because Police need only a reasonable suspicion to stop and frisk a suspect – not the higher level of probable cause. Reasonable suspicion and closer ties to the community is what is needed to bring about crime reduction and community building. An injunction is lazy police work; overkill – unnecessary and has a counter-effective result by tearing down the very community it is supposedly there to clean up.
·        The injunction will not result in safer streets but creates unfettered power in John Russo’s office. Further, an injunction opens the communities up to profit mongers such as real estate developers like John Russo’s family business owners. At a time when Oaklanders are losing their homes to foreclosure at record numbers, their interests rather than big business should be put first. 

 D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunleavy decided to assign the case for investigation. You can read more on the filing of the complaint and the District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint.pdf   
http://www.box.net/shared/sjgi7ynhgh

    al-Hakim also filed the complaint with Oakland City Auditor Courtney Rudy, long rumored to be Russo’s love interest, only to have her refuse to investigate  the complaint, though she is compelled to do so by the passing of Russo’s “Oakland ROAR” anti-corruption program. The program was alleged to revive the confidence of the citizens of Oakland in the City Administrators. She received the 200 page complaint with audio CD as witnessed by the voice mail message left for al-Hakim by her assistant Joe Macaluso. You can view, listen to, and/or download the letters to Ruby and Macaluso’s voice mail here:

    al-Hakim will petition President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation of a complaint filed in 2005 by demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness. These actions of Dunleavy, and Connor are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!

    After the encounter with Connor, al-Hakim spoke with District Attorney Matt Golde and Dorado regarding his treatment and called O’Malley to voice his extreme concern wherein he received a return call from Dunleavy. The recorded conversation with Dunleavy regarding the encounter with Connor and the investigation can be listened to and/or downloaded  at:

  Here’s Dunleavy’s second call stating the he will speak with the Department of Child Support Services attorney that had to admit in court several times that they and the D. A.’s office had committed fraud, embezzlement, and theft against al-Hakim and his family. When al-Hakim refused to pay for the D. A.’s fraud, they attempted to extort the money from him by suspending his drivers license and revoking his passport!

    After no response from the D. A.’s office, the following letter of today ensued.

RE:         District Attorney Forcibly Removing Me from Courthouse Building, Threatened with Arrest if Returned and Response to Formal Complaint Served and Filed June 7, 2010

Dear Judge Dorado,

    First, let me say “Happy Holidays” to you and the family! I know that everyone must be doing great, and since the kids are not getting any younger, I guess you and I can not be 21 any longer! What’s this I hear about you having hip replacement and moving to Juvenile Court? We have some catching up to do, which was part of the reason I was coming to see you when I was removed from the courthouse building!

    I have awaited your response to our last conversation and the results of your inquiry into the District Attorney’s actions wherein hopefully we could meeting to discuss the above very serious concerns. 

    It is unfathomable that such a thing could happen in today’s highly charged racial, political, and law enforcement versus community interactive environment, especially in Oakland and Alameda County where deadly force seems to be the rule rather than the exception. We have also discussed my previous interaction with officer Bob Connor during my Oakland Police Burglary case which you are aware of and know that he is not someone I trust or would interact with in any manner. He clearly tried to put me in harms way where I could/would have been killed! I made it clear then that I never intended to speak or have any contact with him ever again in life.

    To allow the D. A.‘s office to handle me and my complaint in such a Gestapo fashion and to use you as a ruse is unacceptable, needs to be investigated, the responsible parties held accountable and punished. I have yet to receive any response from Nancy O’Malley.     Clearly something must be done as I have waited for you to get back to me to move this process forward. There is no circumstance or law that can justify this use of force, intimidation, and threat of imprisonment under the guise and color of law!. You know that I will not allow this continuing injustice to go on unnoticed so, what time is best for you since I want to meet as soon as possible! 

    We are all very busy, and especially this time of year, but I have been speaking to the D. A.’s office about this matter since June of this year with the above results. The matter of the fraud and corruption committed by the District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney and I are not going to magically disappear so let’s address it and move on. 

    I have litigation that was to be filed in November the day of my being forcibly removed from the court house and threatened with arrest if I returned. I was unable to complete that filing, wherein the D. A.’s office has compromised these suits and this issue also must be corrected ASAP!

    Please respond with a time ASAP and I will accommodate that time and it can be after working hours or the weekend, if it’s best for you. We have some catching up to do anyway.

    Thank you and I welcome and look forward to your immediate response with the furthering of the litigation and resolution of this ongoing case. 

Respectfully,

Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

February 8, 2011,  Oakland, CA:Contact:
Martin Silverman (510) 394-4701
nowtruth@nowtruth.org;

Oakland City Attorney Fraud, Solicitation Perjurious Testimony in Affidavits for Gang Injunction!

    The leak of information on Oakland City Attorney John Russo’s extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony in witness affidavits for the Oakland Gang Injunction litigation is turning into a flood as there appears to be truth in the allegation. It has been rumored that witnesses complained that the affidavits were prepared for their signature without their approval containing inaccurate information, misleading facts, and mis-characterizing statements that were maliciously, willfully and intentionally false. Witness could not change the affidavit and felt they were slighted and perhaps retaliated against when they complained about it. There were other complaints about Russo’s tactics in recent matters as well.
This comes on the heels of a very embarrassing, very public spat with new Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Russo taking personally abusive verbal shots at each other with Russo scorning the mayor for what he called a risky legal relationship with another attorney and Quan firing back at Russo for releasing his legal advice to the media before discussing it with her.

“Russo Tends to Attack by Press Release” Oakland Mayor Jean Quan
    “The problem is that John Russo tends to attack by press release,” Quan said, and complained that he issued his letter while she was still in Washington, D.C., where she attended U.S. Conference of Mayors meetings and also met with White House officials.
Quan said Russo had created a conflict of interest by releasing his advice to the media when he did. “As the City Attorney giving advice to the Mayor, he has the duty of confidentiality and the duty of loyalty to his client. He broke that confidentiality by his actions,” Quan said in a written statement. “This is exactly why the Mayor’s Office and the City Council Offices have considered seeking independent, outside counsel. The City Attorney is the City’s only attorney,” Russo wrote in the letter he released.
Quan denied sharing any confidential city information with an attorney and friend who has been advising her, saying City Attorney John Russo’s suggestion that she may be spilling secrets was “frankly, insulting.”
That claim is false according to him, as
Russo did not bring his concerns to Quan privately before alerting the media — Russo argued in a letter he sent to Quan, other city leaders and local media that the city attorney is the mayor’s only permissible attorney, so any information Quan shares with anyone other than Russo and those in his office — is not protected and can be subpoenaed, threatening the city’s standing in a host of legal scenarios and taking on another attorney, especially one connected to a fight against the city, is breaking the City Charter and creates a conflict of interest.
“We have a city attorney who is elected and so sometimes has his own political agenda,” Quan said.
“I’m caught in the middle, and I’m sorry about that.”
“This is a uniquely obnoxious violation of the charter because he’s in the middle of this,” Russo said. “I should be able to brief (Quan) on the strengths and weaknesses of our cases. If she’s going to turn around and give that to our opponents, how am I supposed to do my job?” “What the mayor has done here,” Russo added, “is put my office in a very awkward position where we’re not sure we can give confidential information to Mayor Quan. You should never be in that position with the CEO of the corporation.” “Violation of the City Charter is a crime,” Russo wrote in closing. “It is now incumbent on you to uphold your oath to defend the Charter.”
Quan, a longtime adversary of Russo from his days on the Council, feels concerned as the public see’s Russo has overstepped his boundary by pursuing the injunction without endorsement from the city council or the mayor in his continuing quest to be the De-Facto mayor. There is a question about what is the authority of the city attorney to bring these cases without the authorization of city council and the Mayor.”

Oakland Marijuana Ordinance
There’s also a marijuana ordinance in front of city council that is endorsed by “Johnny Potty” Russo. He picked up that handle because of his penchant for doing video interviews in the restroom “potty” with another man, not to mention the weed endorsement. Does the citizens of Oakland really want a crooked City Attorney who drives around with his kids in the car without their seat belts on, wants to legalize smoking weed and gives video interviews in the bathroom with another man? The unfortunate part about this episode is Mayor Quan’s adviser has also been busted for marijuana so everything is up in smoke!
    A court hearing that could result in the implementation of the injunction is scheduled for February 16, 2011 before admitted and convicted liar, the embattled Judge Robert Freedman.

Judge Robert Freedman’s Misconduct Warranted His Removal from Office
    al-Hakim filed a formal complaint on April 11, 2008 and April 14, 2008 with both the Judicial Council and Superior Court against Judge Tigar for his attempt at provoking al-Hakim at a side bar during trial. al-Hakim received a one sentence response dated September 26, 2008 from Victoria Henley stating that “your submission does not provide a basis for commission proceedings”. al-Hakim received a letter dated April 15, 2008 from then Presiding Judge Yolanda Northridge acknowledging receipt of the complaint referring the matter to the Supervising Judge, Robert Freedman for review but has gotten no response as promised.
No one should be surprised because Judge Freedman has had his own well documented problems with honesty by willfully and intentionally filing false, perjurious and deceiving documents and affidavits regrading the timeliness in the administration of his duties in order to get paid and was issued a public reprimand.
In June 2007 The Commission on Judicial Performance publicly censured Alameda Superior Court
Judge Robert J. Freedman for violating rules of conduct by failing to decide cases on time and falsely swearing that he was keeping up with time limits.
Judge Freedman’s misconduct was of such gravity as to warrant his removal from office, the commission said, but the presence of mitigating evidence justified reducing the punishment to a “severe public censure.” You can read and/or download the article on Judge Freeman’s Censure at: http://www.box.net/shared/5n0tt72rbt
The commission adopted factual findings made by a panel of special masters, who found by clear and convincing evidence that Freedman delayed rulings in 21 of the 23 cases over which he was charged in a notice of formal proceedings last May.
It also agreed with the panel that Freedman, as accused in the notice, regularly signed and submitted false salary affidavits to the county during times when he was aware his rulings were overdue. He has a checkered past in al-Hakim’s case as well.
At one hearing in that matter he openly stated bias, prejudice, voiced a fixed opinion of
al-Hakim and having an improper ex-parte communications regarding al-Hakim and his case while using such information to hold al-Hakim to a higher legal standard than that of the opposing counsel in the case as a guise for sanctioning al-Hakim for it. al-Hakim is convinced and Freedman’s three years of delay demonstrate that he will not seriously review nor is he capable of impartially or fairly judging this matter, even for review.

Russo’s Interest in Real Estate Firm
Is there any truth to the allegation that Russo has an interest in a real estate firm? It is widely acknowledged that the Gang Injunctions are nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black/Latino Communities unopposed because of the ap
athy and lack of leadership in defending their rights from the so-called leaders! Where are the national groups that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when the minority communities are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?

The Merits of The Gang Injunction
    The University of California, Berkeley – School of Law’s Center for Criminal Justice cites nationwide statistics that overwhelming prove Gang Injunctions are ineffective in all jurisdictions.
The following are but a few reasons cited by the legal community on why Russo’s proposed injunction should not be granted:
·        At a time when California’s budget is in a record crisis, does Oakland have resources to waste on an injunction that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to enforce yet will not bring about positive crime reduction results?
·        The injunction would increase the distance between police and communities, does not focus on rehabilitation, reasons why youth join gangs, jobs or education which youth of our state so desperately need. Study after study has shown that rehabilitation is over ninety percent effective for this age group.
·        A federal judge who is monitoring Oakland police reforms heavily criticized the police department at a hearing and threatened to take it over, the Tribune reported. Judge Thelton Henderson, who is monitoring the OPD because of the Riders scandal, threatened to put the department in “receivership.” If that were to happen, the judge would appoint an overseer who would have power over Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts. The judge is upset that the Oakland Police Department has still not instituted the police misconduct reforms that it agreed to several years ago. A Legal Settlement is a contract – breach of which by OPD opens the city up to even more money damages.
·        In light of the above, if Russo has his way, the police will undeservedly regain power; usurping Federal power, creating a “Fiefdom” for Russo. A failed police department does not deserve to continue down a path of destruction – that is why the Federal Government stepped in to begin with. If the Rider’s Settlement is not given effect – the entire trial was for naught -yet another waste of taxpayer dollars.
·        The named defendants in the injunction are guilty until proven innocent. This turns the US Constitution upside down. An injunction is simply not necessary because Police need only a reasonable suspicion to stop and frisk a suspect – not the higher level of probable cause. Reasonable suspicion and closer ties to the community is what is needed to bring about crime reduction and community building. An injunction is lazy police work; overkill – unnecessary and has a counter-effective result by tearing down the very community it is supposedly there to clean up.
·        The injunction will not result in safer streets but creates unfettered power in John Russo’s office. Further, an injunction opens the communities up to profit mongers such as real estate developers like John Russo’s family business owners. At a time when Oaklanders are losing their homes to foreclosure at record numbers, their interests rather than big business should be put first.
 
 D. A. & Oakland City Attorney Fraud Victim Forcibly Removed from Courthouse Building Threatened With Arrest

    The following letter is from Alameda County District Attorney and Oakland City Attorney fraud victim Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim to an over 40 year personal friend and family client, the Honorable Judge Leo Dorado regarding an encounter with District Attorney henchman Bob Connor whom forcibly removed al-Hakim from the Rene Davidson Courthouse building and threatened to arrest al-Hakim if he ever returned. Connor is very well known to both parties.

    al-Hakim has filed a formal complaint against the Alameda County District Attorney office and the City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010. After several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, Dunlea
vy decided to assign the case for investigation.
You can read more on the filing of the complaint and the District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint.pdf
http://www.box.net/shared/sjgi7ynhgh

al-Hakim also filed the complaint with Oakland City Auditor Courtney Rudy, long rumored to be Russo’s love interest, only to have her refuse to investigate  the complaint, though she is compelled to do so by the passing of Russo’s “Oakland ROAR” anti-corruption program. The program was alleged to revive the confidence of the citizens of Oakland in the City Administrators. She received the 200 page complaint with audio CD as witnessed by the voice mail message left for al-Hakim by her assistant Joe Macaluso.

Macaluso’s voice mail

    al-Hakim will petition President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation of a complaint filed in 2005 by demanding a change in this criminal, tactical policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated, Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks!

These actions of Dunleavy, and Connor are just the latest example of the continuing efforts of law enforcement to silence and eliminate al-Hakim as their adversary when he has caught and exposed them as they have been entrapped in their own crimes!

After the encounter with Connor, al-Hakim spoke with District Attorney Matt Golde and Dorado regarding his treatment and called O’Malley to voice his extreme concern wherein he received a return call from Dunleavy. The recorded conversation with Dunleavy regarding the encounter with Connor and the investigation can be listened to and/or downloaded  at:

Here’s Dunleavy’s second call stating the he will speak with the Department of Child Support Services attorney that had to admit in court several times that they and the D.

I have attached the links to the live broadcasts on November 20, 2010 over ABC Networks’ KGO 810 FM Radio Show and on December 4, 2010 over KNBR- The Sports Leader, 680 AM and ESPN Radio “The Ticket” 1050 AM, of the discussion of the film “OUT. The Glenn Burke Story” The ABC- KGO Radio broadcast was with Shooty Babbitt, John Lambert and myself. The KNBR show was with Doug Harris, the producer of “Out. The Glenn Burke Story” on the show “The Law of Sports” with host attorney Ivan Golde, whose also a legal analyst for CNN, Fox News, Warner Bros- KRON, and CBS-KPIX, among others.
The on-air discussions were about Glenn, the film, society and sports. I think you will be very moved with the overall content and how Glenn’s impact has becoming a serious topic of discussion around the country. Glenn lives on!!!

Glenn Burke’s journey through baseball began and ended in Oakland, California. His sports career had many stops along the way, starting as a multi-sport star at Berkeley High School, followed by a brief stint at the University of Nevada, Reno as a prized basketball recruit, and then moving into professional baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, being hailed by one coach as “the next Willie Mays.”
Early in his career, Burke felt he had to hide his true self from his teammates.  Later, when he began to reveal glimpses into his sexuality the baseball establishment began to close him out.  Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a one-hour documentary produced by Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, tells the dramatic tale of Burke’s legacy as the first openly homosexual Major League Baseball player.  From his Major League debut in 1976 and starting Game One of the 1977 World Series for the Dodgers to subsequently being traded to the Oakland Athletics the next season, and then walking away in 1980 from the game that he deeply loved, Comcast SportsNet follows one of baseball’s most dramatic arcs.
Many of Burke’s teammates were aware of his homosexuality during his playing career, as were members of management. And many of those teammates believe that his sexuality – and the reaction it provoked – led to the premature derailment of his baseball career.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story tells the tumultuous story of the wedge that was driven between Burke and the Los Angeles management, the ensuing similar situation in Oakland that led to Burke’s abrupt retirement, and the hero’s welcome that Burke received in San Francisco’s Castro District after he left professional baseball.
Comcast SportsNet’s narrative follows Burke through his public announcement of his homosexuality in a 1982 Inside Sports magazine article (‘The Double Life of a Gay Dodger’) and on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel, to his subsequent downward spiral to drugs, prison, and eventually living on the same San Francisco streets where he was once hailed as an icon.
Burke’s story took on another level of tragedy when he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1994.  Yet at the end of his life, the game that he claimed abandoned him so many years before reached out to one of its own. The A’s found Burke and provided him with constant support in his final months, as did some of his former teammates.
Glenn Burke passed away on May 30, 1995 at the age of 42 of AIDS-related complications.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story documents the extent of Burke’s courage, strife and friendship throughout his life, and the compassion and callousness of the sport of baseball.  The program weaves together insights from Burke’s teammates and friends, including Dusty Baker, Davey Lopes, Reggie Smith, Rick Monday, Manny Mota, Rickey Henderson, Claudell Washington, Mike Norris, Shooty Babitt, Tito Fuentes, and former Major Leaguer and gay rights activist Billy Bean.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a one-hour documentary, premieres on Wednesday, November 10 at 8:00 p.m. PT on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and will air commercial-free.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Glenn Burke’s journey through baseball began and ended in Oakland, California. His sports career had many stops along the way, starting as a multi-sport star at Berkeley High School, followed by a brief stint at the University of Nevada, Reno as a prized basketball recruit, and then moving into professional baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers, being hailed by one coach as “the next Willie Mays.”  Early in his career, Burke felt he had to hide his true self from his teammates.
Later, when he began to reveal glimpses into his sexuality the baseball establishment began to close him out.  Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a one-hour commercial-free program that documents Burke’s legacy as the first openly homosexual Major League Baseball player, will premiere on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Wednesday, November 10 at 8:00 p.m. PT.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story tells the dramatic tale of Burke’s Major League career as an outfielder for the Dodgers and as a starter in Game One of the 1977 World Series, to being traded to the Oakland Athletics the following season, and then walking away from the game that he deeply loved in 1980.  Many of Burke’s teammates were aware of his homosexuality during his playing career, as were members of management. And many of those teammates believe that his sexuality led to the premature derailment of his baseball career.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story explores the wedge that was driven between Burke and the Los Angeles management, the ensuing similar situation in Oakland that led to Burke’s abrupt retirement, and the hero’s welcome that Burke received in San Francisco’s Castro District after he left professional baseball.  The documentary follows him through his public announcement of his homosexuality in a 1982 Inside Sports magazine article and on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel, to his downward spiral after his split from baseball, a split that drove Burke to drugs and prison, and eventually to living on the same San Francisco streets where he was once recognized as an icon.
Burke’s story took on another level of tragedy when he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1994.  Yet at the end of Burke’s life, the game that he claimed abandoned him so many years before reached out to one of its own. The A’s found Burke and provided him with constant support in his final months, as did some of his former teammates.
Out. The Glenn Burke Story features numerous interviews with Burke’s teammates and friends, including Dusty Baker, Davey Lopes, Reggie Smith, Rick Monday, Manny Mota, Rickey Henderson, Claudell Washington, Mike Norris, Shooty Babitt, Tito Fuentes, and former Major Leaguer and gay rights activist Billy Bean.

Excerpts from Out. The Glenn Burke Story:
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim (Childhood friend and sports agent):
On Burke’s homosexuality and the homophobia in Major League Baseball:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”
Claudell Washington:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”
Davey Lopes:
On Burke’s trade to the A’s:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ballclub.  Probably not the real reason why things happened.”
Dusty Baker:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew; I think that’s why they traded Glenn.”
Reggie Smith:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
Vincent Trahan (Berkeley High School classmate):
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married.  And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”
On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”
Lyle Spencer (MLB.com, former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer):
On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”
Billy Bean:
On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”
Claudell Washington:
On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.”
Lutha Davis (Sister):
On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think, at the time, you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”
Pamela Pitts (Oakland A’s Director of Baseball Administration):
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe someone wants to help me.’”
On Burke’s death: “I do believe he was in a much better place.  His demons were gone.”
Ted Griggs, Vice President and General Manager, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area stated, “As an East Bay native, I knew all about Glenn Burke’s legendary athletic feats at Berkeley High.  I followed his career with the Dodgers and A’s throughout the late seventies, and watched and read with great interest when he came out on The Today Show with Bryant Gumbel and in Inside Sports Magazine.  I was saddened by his tragic death and thought at the time that his was a compelling story that should be told one day.  This documentary allows Glenn’s family, friends, and teammates to tell that story, and it is enhanced with the narration of Dave Morey, one of the most respected voices in Bay Area radio.”
Out.  The Glenn Burke Story is narrated by Morey, who was recently inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame in the class of 2010 after 26 years as a morning host at KFOG and nearly 40 years in broadcasting.

Excerpts
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim – Childhood friend, sports agent:
On Burke’s homosexuality:  “It was uncompromising on both ends.  Glenn was comfortable with who he was. Baseball was not comfortable with who he was.”
On the influence of Burke’s post-baseball friends:  “I think a lot of that dragged him down and that’s when a lot of the demons started to come out because that celebrity that he had, it had another side to it too.”
On Burke’s car accident and injury:  “That might have been one of the factors that led him down that slide too; he had to try to find a way to ease all these pains – physically, psychologically, emotionally, financially.  There became a lot of things that he had to address in his life.”
Shooty Babitt – Former Oakland Athletics infielder, Comcast SportsNet A’s analyst:
On the clubhouse mentality:  “You have to remember back in that day you couldn’t just come out and say ‘I’m gay.’”
On the reaction to Burke around the league:  “They ran him straight out the game.  Now, you’re gay first and a baseball player second, so until you can justify your existence being gay, there’s no way you can get a chance to justify being a major league player.”
On other major leaguers asking about Burke:  “You didn’t really hear people wanting to ask; it was more of a hush-hush thing because of the intimidating guy that Glenn was.”
On Burke’s athletic ability:  “Glenn was like a two sport star. You felt like he had the opportunity to play in the NBA as well as Major League Baseball…you figured that he was going to be a major leaguer right away because that’s just how good that he was.”
Dusty Baker – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Cincinnati Reds manager:
On the rumors of Burke’s sexual preference and his trade to the A’s:  “I think the Dodgers knew. And I think that’s why they traded him.”
Billy Bean – Former Major League outfielder, gay rights activist
On Burke in baseball:  “Baseball wasn’t ready for Glenn Burke.  He was a pioneer and he caught them off guard.”
On dealing with discrimination:  “The closet hurts people – forever.  Everyone’s career ends, but to do it because you don’t feel you belong there when you’ve proven that you do is damaging.  And it affects everything, and I’m sure that’s why Glenn swam in the waters of drugs and alcohol – to take away his frustration.”
Marvin Buckley –Berkeley High School basketball teammate:
On Burke’s comedic personality: “He was a cross between Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor.”
Mark Brown – San Francisco Gay Softball League player:
On Burke after retirement:  “After Glenn lost the baseball business, his life never was the same. And he never could really hold down a job. He had a lot of friends that wanted to help him, that tried to help him but his whole life was built around sports.”
Larry Corrigan – Former Dodgers Minor League teammate, Pittsburgh Pirates executive:
On Burke’s command of the locker room:  “The team was always thought of as the Los Angeles Dodgers but it was Glenn Burke’s team.  The personality of the team was his, the clubhouse was his.  Most people didn’t like the Dodgers…they sure didn’t like the personality that Glenn brought to the ballpark.”
On Burke’s turbulent personality:  “I’m not sure every manager said, ‘Hey, I’ll take Glenn Burke.’ I don’t think they wanted him, because he was a handful.”
On Burke’s personality:  “That’s how strong Glenn’s personality was, that he could take over a Major League clubhouse and he was a rookie.  He hadn’t even played in the big leagues.”
Lutha Davis – Sister:
On Burke’s injured leg:  “His leg was broken in three places and they put a rod in there. They were supposed to replace it but he never went back to get it replaced, so that leg was rotting.”
On AIDS:  “A lot of people were scared because I think at the time you didn’t know whether you can just breathe on somebody and get AIDS or just touch them.”
Tommy Hawkins – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Vice President of Communications & External Affairs, KJAZZ radio announcer:
On Burke’s personality:  “I would describe Glenn like the glistening mirror ball at a discotheque. When the light hits it, and all of these different reflections and colors flash all over the room, that was Glenn Burke.”
Davey Lopes – Former Los Angeles Dodgers infielder, Philadelphia Phillies coach:
On the invention of the “High Five”:  “Me and Dusty always talk about and ask each other who invented the High Five.  And to this day the only guy we can think of is Glenn.”
When a friend told him Burke was gay:  “He just said, ‘I just wanted to tell you. Glenn’s gay.’ And I said, ‘Glenn who? Get the – get outta here.’”
On Burke being traded for A’s Billy North:  “Everybody was upset…He was the guy that kept the chemistry going in the clubhouse…I think if everybody knows the story, I think there were other reasons why he was traded.”
On the Dodgers decision to trade Burke:  “You don’t break up, disrupt a team going as well as it was going to make changes.  I didn’t feel it was going to make us a better ball club.  Billy North was not going to make us, at that time, any better of a ball club.  I thought it was probably not the real reason why things happened.”
Rick Monday – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, Dodgers broadcaster:
On Burke battling personal and professional demons:  “We didn’t understand the challenges he was going through on a daily basis at the time.  You put it into perspective when you say, here is a guy that is fighting not only the opposing pitcher that was trying to get him out, he was fighting the unknown.”
Mike Norris – Former Oakland Athletics pitcher:
On being in the locker room with Burke: “It became pretty obvious to a lot of people that Glenn was gay and he started to make a lot of people uncomfortable in the locker room and the showers.  It was an uncomfortable situation after awhile.”
On Burke retiring: “Glenn was just in a no-win situation. And that was the best thing for him to do was to retire.”
Pamela Pitts – Oakland Athletics Director of Baseball Administration:
On Burke’s reaction to hearing the A’s would help him:  “Glenn started to cry and said, ‘I’ve been told you’re going to help me. I can’t believe somebody wants to help me.’”
On Burke’s death:  “I do believe he was in a much better place. His demons were gone.”
Richard Purcell – Founder of “Marty’s Place,” an AIDS/HIV patient safe house in San Francisco:
On Burke’s drug use:  “He told me that on the day he was on national TV and he told the truth he was loaded to the gills.”
On Burke becoming alienated from his friends:  “I could see why he turned so many people off. It was the addiction; it wasn’t Glenn.”
Eric Sherman – Author, “Out at Home, The Glenn Burke Story”:
On interviewing Burke:  “I interviewed him…on and off for about maybe a year before he died and even though we had to take breaks every…every 10 minutes or so because of the pain, and the tears, the crying…I’ll never forget I said to him, ‘Glenn, you know we put in two or three days, we don’t have to go on, you don’t have to do this.’”
On Burke’s lifestyle after retirement:  “He ran out of money, then he got involved with drugs. His partying escalated and his drug use escalated.”
Jim Skeels – Burke’s Connie Mack Baseball coach:
On watching Burke play baseball:  “Glenn was the kind of guy that if you looked out in center field, nine times out of ten you’d see a smile on his face, because you could tell he loved playing this game.”
On Burke and gay stereotypes:  “When I looked at Glenn and realized that Glenn had chosen that lifestyle, I said, ‘You just have burst my stereotype.’”
On seeing Burke before he died: “For a man that had answers on the baseball field, on the basketball court, and I think to a great degree with life. And to see him curled up, it was crushing.”
Reggie Smith – Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder:
On the suspicions on Burke’s sexuality:  “I certainly didn’t want to accuse him of that, because one thing’s for sure – at that time period, it was a kiss of death for a ballplayer.  He would’ve been excused from the game, so to say.”
On possible consequences of accusing a player of being gay:  “You didn’t want to cause that for a person, but at the same time you didn’t want to say you were closely associated.”
On the suspicion of Burke’s sexuality:  “You were concerned of being stereotyped…that to know him must mean that you’re one…so you kept your distance.”
On Burke’s interview with Inside Sports:  “He made the choice to come out, knowing in his own mind that, as far as playing baseball, his career was pretty much over.”
Lyle Spencer – Former Los Angeles Dodgers beat writer, MLB.com:
On Burke’s charisma:  “I’ve been around a lot of charismatic guys…just in terms of personality, I’ve never been around anybody who could light up a room like Glenn could.”
On the reaction of Burke’s teammates the day he was traded:  “I was shocked that he was traded… I walked into the clubhouse…and guys were visibly distraught over the trade, and that told me that my sense of how important he was to them internally was accurate.  I even remember a few players crying when they found out about it at their lockers, which is stunning.”
Vincent Trahan – Berkeley High School classmate:
On Dodger management and their suspicions:  “Al Campanis and Walter O’Malley had called him into the office and offered him $75,000 to get married. And Glenn, being his comic self, said, ‘I guess you mean to a woman?’”
On the Dodgers’ controversial trade of Burke to the A’s:  “He was hurt because they traded him not for his baseball ability but for his life choice.”
On helping Burke self-medicate with crack cocaine:  “I asked Lutha, ‘I’ve known you all my life…how do you feel with me bringing crack to Glenn?’…and Lutha said to me, ‘It doesn’t bother me. Whatever is giving my brother some type of relief, I’m okay with it.’”
Claudell Washington – Former Major League outfielder:
On Oakland Athletics manager Billy Martin introducing Burke to his new teammates in spring training:  “He was introducing all the players and then he got to Glenn and said, ‘Oh, by the way, this is Glenn Burke and he’s a faggot.’”
On Burke being a loner:  “Glenn was more or less a loner. The only time we ever saw Glenn was at the gym. I don’t know what he did after. We’d finish playing the game and stuff and Glenn was just like a mirage. He was here now and gone later.”
On hearing about Burke contracting AIDS:  “I was stunned at that time. A person that I’d known, loved, and respected had contracted an illness like that and was suffering.”
Marvin Webb – Former Los Angeles Dodgers Minor League teammate:
On Burke’s ability to make new friends:  “Blacks, Whites, Latinos, they all loved Glenn. He got along with everybody.”
On when teammates asked him about Burke: “I’ll tell you this, you ought to ask him. I ain’t never seen him with a woman but you ought to ask him.”
On his drug use:  “I remember hearing about how he started robbing people for drugs and extra money. It really made me feel bad.”

OAKLAND CITY ADMNISTRATOR TO MEET WITH al-HAKIM
ON FATE OF CITY ATTORNEY JOHN RUSSO
Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindhiem is scheduled to meet with Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim on

John Russo former Oakland City Attorney Caught in FRAUD!

Monday, September 20, 2010 to discuss the fate of City Attorneys John Russo; Managing Principal Partner of the law firm Meyers Nave, Former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; and their respective City Attorney’s Offices in response to al-Hakim’s corruption complaint. This meeting comes on the heels of the Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigning the case to Deputy District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy whom after his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, decided to assign the case for investigation.

al-Hakim has presented uncontested, irrefutable, uncontroverted evidence that the Parties named herein have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT by giving the case files to defendant Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski, and Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening for nearly a year; then clearly constructed fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts; they committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity with this unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files to accommodate the defendants litigation strategy in both the CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case. They have committed criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the California Cannons strikes at the heart of al-Hakim’s fundamental civil and human rights, and the right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution. These actions qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh Rights Act, the Ralph Civil Rights Act and the Bane Act, while they are clear crimes of religious bigotry and intolerance, as such, this conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the City Attorney’s Office operates “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. This deprivation of al-Hakim’s civil, human and due process rights by the law enforcement body of the City Attorneys’ office of Oakland “rise to the level of criminal activity and misconduct” by local and federal law enforcement officials. These criminal actions by Russo and his staff demand they be issued court ordered subpoena to testify.  You can read and/or download the Complaint and the exhibits here if you choose .

Jayne Williams, John Russo, the Oakland City Attorneys Office and CSAA Worked with The Defense Against It’s Own Insured

al-Hakim has asserted that as relevant to whether these actions of Jayne Williams, John Russo, the Oakland City Attorneys Office and al-Hakim’s own insurance carrier, CSAA, there are equally as serious charges with regards to the actions of Jayne Williams; John Russo; the Oakland City Attorneys Office; CSAA; Cook and Willoughby Stuart & Bening; Barber and Ropers Majeski participation in the orchestration of defendants Rescue Rooter and Bay Area Carpet’s defense strategy against their client rather than represent al-Hakim as required by law. The witness testimony and evidence that was procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious testimony by them and the defendants, they engaged in actions to interfere with their client and litigant’s legal case, engaged in actions to coverup the unlawful act of suborn and solicited perjurious testimony, committed fraud upon the court of the State of California, aided and abetted criminal activity, committed willful, criminal and corrupt perjury, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony, fraudulent concealment, spoliation of evidence with the City of Oakland, their unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files, has committed patterned willful, criminal, and corrupt deception and fraud upon the court, extrinsic fraud, spoliation of evidence with the disappearance of court records, and have unclean hands.

She even received a phone call from the long-time regular show host, Emmitt Powell whom was contacted by the station in response to Russo’s effort to censor the show.
Miss Wilson proceeded to host the program all alone to comply with the City Attorney and KPFA’s censorship directive without any of her invited guests. You can listen to that voicemail message here.

District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint!
After a number of faxes, the filing of a formal complaint against City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010 and several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, he has decided to assign the case for investigation.

One of the areas discussed for investigation is that of jurisdiction since the complaint also involves actions on the part of the D. A., their prior open court admission of fraud injuring al-Hakim and his family in another matter, though they should be able to be separated without consequence or compromise. It is somewhat complicated by the fact that the D. A. feels that the complaint rightfully belongs back with the United States Attorney General Eric Holder, who’s office had it originally under A. G. Alberto Gonzalez. al-Hakim rejected that notion, been there, done that, going back already! al-Hakim opposed that theory as “kicking the can down the road to avoid their responsibility to investigate and prosecute their friends and themselves” because al-Hakim already has that prong in his attack and would not allow the D. A. off the hook that easily with a self-serving excuse. Another D. A. close to al-Hakim separately proposed to have the Grand Jury handle the investigation only to face the same rationale.
As you all know, al-Hakim has harnessed the power of public opinion, has a petition in circulation for President Obama and U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder to expand the initial investigation to a complaint filed in 2005 with a grass roots movement embraced by thousands demanding a change in the policy of isolation, victimization, criminalization and the attempted entrapment of the victim, including the use of government initiated Nixon era “White House Plumbers” and CoIntelpro style dirty tricks! This civil conspiracy has brought into play County and Sate Agencies to further it’s continued investigation of al-Hakim whom the defense admitted in 1998 has been surveilled for years and continues today with the compromising of many agents and informants covers due to their sloppiness.
This effort was a major factor in al-Hakim’s recent trials in the County and State Courts and was used to gather reconnaissance against him. This manifested itself as the supreme purveyor of the judicial corruption, perjury, bias, prejudice and ultimate cover-up of these crimes against al-Hakim. al-Hakim has four complaints filed with the Alameda County Presiding Court Judge that have been being investigated for over three years without any response from the court while the judges continue to rule from the bench. What happens when they are found to have committed corruption, corrupt misconduct, gross miscarriages of justice, bias, prejudice, and perjury while serving and they continued to serve while these crimes were being investigated making rulings that they legally and morally where unfit to have made? What happens to all the rulings that they made while under this cloud of veiled crime? What happens to all the parties unjustly tried and cases unjustly settled or disposed of? This fact alone will not only ruin the court system but ruin the eroded confidence of the public in the exposed truly unjust, dishonored judicial system we live today in the City of Oakland, Alameda County and the State of California.
al-Hakim has warned District Attorney Nancy O’Malley that he will not allow any posturing by any political opportunist with this investigation being a cursory one with out any possibility of prosecution of the criminals nor the passing of the buck to the United States Attorney General or Alameda County Grand Jury. O’Malley thinks there’s votes and money in positioning herself as being aggressive on crime in a high profile manner by pursuing this matter on paper for pure electoral reasons! Several of the judges that have clearly committed crimes in this case are directly involved with the Grand Jury. Never the less, al-Hakim insists that the parties engage in the process of investigating themselves as a true measure of transparency, accountability, crime fighting and justice that they all have so faithfully campaigned on!
Far too many instances of foul play on behalf of the City Attorneys, Alameda County District Attorney, Alameda County Superior Court, California Attorney General, California Appeals Court for the governing bodies the complaint was filed with to ignore their dutiful responsibility to investigate and prosecute.
There have been far too many threats and warnings from people in positions of power directly opposed to exposing this complaint and the dastardly crimes contained therein. The cover up has taken on the proportions a movement! There should be no difficulty nor opposition to the investigation and prosecution of the complaint. Now they feel they can’t let al-Hakim prevail because it portrays them in the old axiom of “a group smart people not being able to legally exploit and take advantage of one stupid person!”.
Incredibly, sympathizing politicians are carrying the criminals water without defending it by suggesting that al-Hakim wants them to support his effort. al-Hakim only wants a fair and impartial investigation just as any other citizen off the streets of Oakland just like these very same politicians should! What is so hard to understand about that and just why is that wrong? Why are they being an accessory while aiding and abetting this crime? Where’s this resistance coming from? Who’s really behind it? It reveals the last refuges of scoundrels caught in a scandal! Its a very bad situation made worse by civil conspiracy and cover up for which no apology can mitigate. Russo’s big lie that al-Hakim was the bad guy in an effort to demonize him has fallen miserably on it’s face where his greatest supporters no longer subscribe to that spin and can not overcome al-Hakim’s uncontested, uncontroverted, undeniable, irrefutable evidence that will allow the over $20 million claim to prevail on summary judgment!
The true ethos of this country is not about propagating fear, contempt and hate to veil the concerted attempt to evade investigating and prosecuting your allies at the expense of al-Hakim, his family, business, his community, the people, justice, integrity, the publics confidence… The public is appalled! That is the very defined action of Civil Conspiracy!
Law enforcement and Politicians do not have the right to evade the law because they feel entitled, privileged! They do not have that right and if al-Hakim had done these same things as an African-American and Muslim, he would be held in Guantanamo Bay Prison under secret evidence, tortured underground with air and light pumped down to him once a month!
Based on the current national political environment, the enthusiasm rallied around the politics of fear, the State of the economy, the failure to materialize of a lot of what Russo, et. al. were counting on for legal and political shelter, the disdain for al-Hakim becoming more popular and with the projected trajectory of the legal case with no unexpected intervening events, Russo was in a position to dodge the political death nail!
The public is angry and fed up with corruption and those that feel they are above the law! Polls show 85% of the people do not trust politicians, law enforcement, nor judges! People are frothing at the mouth to use their ballot, their protest, their dollars, their free speech right, free assembly right, their lawmaking right to flush the crooks out of office! They are not dispirited, but energized in attacking those miscreants as these factors and this enthusiasm has shown to be a pivotal, decisive factor at the polls. Many politicians now view Russo as a political liability and have abandoned Russo, et. al., dropping them off their lists of supporters in order to survive! There’s a direct correlation to his decline in popularity with the increase in the call for Russo’s resignation! Russo will have to use his political cache, and adjust his financial resources to fend off his complete demise and hold onto some dignity as he leaves politics, while it is doubtful that he be competitive in this fight for his life that isn’t exactly fair anymore!
al-Hakim has been attacked like the Nazi government and bombed like Pearl Harbor for raising the complaint and refusing to allow those responsible to perform their sworn duties! The responsible parties are taking this opportunity to celebrate their racism with their ignore and delay tactic, which hasn’t slowed down since Judge James Richman began the judicial crime spree, in hopes that it will “go away” or they can pass it on to someone else who can say “no and do nothing!” But they do not have that luxury!
City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave defense strategy of essentially vetoing the complaint with years of confrontation and nothing happening has now dealt the damaging blow of the Cities they consult affected having to find a way to govern with this cloud of municipal legal uncertainty hanging over every decision, legal case, vote, opinion, contract, settlement, and each and every simple everyday task subject to legal reversal! It is a foregoing conclusion that they are out of time and options while facing what is a tidal wave of criticism and a blacklash that shakes and newly shapes the foundation of ALL their legacies.
Russo had a very comfortable position in the drivers seat with the control and close personal contacts he had over the D. A.’s office, County Superior Court, the State Appeals Court, The State Attorney General and the United States Attorney General’s Office. He clearly was confident and sure he was untouchable, as with his Italian mobster heritage he’s so proud of, “the Teflon Don” ! However the failure to materialize of a lot of what Russo, et. al. were counting on for legal and political shelter has brought them ALL under unbearable scrutiny and regulation, some at Russo’s own creation and to his own demise! As any student of civics or law knows corruption and civil conspiracy are crimes and void of any and all presumed entitlements.
This is Part One of a multi part series examining the corruption in the al-Hakim v. Rescue Rooter, et. al.; al-Hakim v. CSAA, et. al. legal cases that includes parts on the Judiciary, Compromising Cover of Law Enforcement, City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, Oakland City Government, and apathetic media bias.

The information below is provided to give you a more complete understanding of the facts in this case and will explain the complaint more fully. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (510) 394-4701.

On or about August 15, 2009 show Co-Host, Producer, and Lawyer Gabrielle Wilson informed KPFA listeners of an intriguing case she discovered in the Superior Court of California, County of Alameda, the matter of Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim v CSAA, et. al.
In preparation for the show that was scheduled to air on The Gospel Experience Program- Saturday, September 5, 2009 at 8:30 A.M. on Radio Station KPFA 94.1 FM, in Berkeley CA. Miss Wilson invited three guests to participate in a legal roundtable broadcast to discuss corruption in the Alameda County Superior Court in the above referenced case. Her invited guests were the Attorney General of California Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo and Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim, the plaintiff in the case.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown, responsible for carrying out the investigation of Alameda County Superior Court and State Appeals Court judges, District Attorney Tom Orloff, Oakland City Attorney John Russo and various corporate defendants in this case is himself defending some of the criminals and covering up the very same corruption he is supposed to be investigating and prosecuting! Full Story with Videos and Documents at visit page Attorney General Jerry Brown Defending and Covering Up for Criminals He’s To Investigate and Prosecute
Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim, the Uber-successful sports and entertainment manager/agent with Superstar Management, filed a federal complaint with the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, of a hate crime of Islamophobia and Xenophobia committed against him during a trial in Superior Court of Alameda County, California. More on al-Hakim at http://SuperstarManagement.com/
This case is the subject of an ongoing investigation into the actions of various Judges, court administration, State Attorney General, Alameda County District Attorney, Oakland City Attorney, various attorneys, defendants and their employees, agents, contractors, experts, and witnesses. This case is returning back to the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, the local and Federal Courts.

The Program was to air live over the internet on http://www.kpfa.org/ and KPFB 89.3 FM; KFCF- Fresno, CA- 88.1 FM;  KCSB – Santa Barbara, CA – 91.9 FM; KDRT-LP – Davis, CA – 101.5 FM; KDVS – Davis, CA – 90.3 FM; KHSU in Arcata, CA- 90.5 FM; KIDE – Hoopa, CA – 91.3 FM; KMUD – Redway, CA – 88.3 & 91.1 FM; KMEC-LP – Ukiah, CA – 105.1 FM; KNFS-LP – Tulare, CA – 98.1 FM; KUSP – Santa Cruz, CA – 88.9 FM; KVMR – Nevada City, CA – 89.5 &105.1 FM; KZFR – Chico, CA – 90.1 FM
During the week of August 23, 2009 Miss Wilson received a phone call from Evan Westrep from Brown’s office. He left a voice mail message for her at radio station KPFA stating he would pass her interview request along to Brown’s schedulers.

During that same week, Miss Wilson received emails and phone calls from Oakland City Attorney Russo’s press director Alex Katz. One email Katz sent to her and Sasha Lilley, interim Program Director at KPFA, with a cc: to Mark Moromodi, Supervising Deputy for the Oakland City Attorney, proclaiming that City Attorney John Russo was not involved in the case, yet he wanted her to answer questions as to why she wanted to provide a forum for the plaintiff, al-Hakim whom he alleged had posted threatening videos about John Russo.

Here is a copy of that email message.
Katz followed up that email with a voicemail message he left for Miss Wilson after the close of business just hours before the scheduled broadcast was to occur threatening her and warned Miss Wilson not to broadcast the interview and demanded she speak with him before she aired the scheduled program. He did this though he wanted Miss Wilson and KPFA to believe that John Russo and the City Attorney’s office was not involved in the case and had nothing to hide! You can view the documents and videos of Russo’s corruption on the web page City Attorney John Russo’s Political Suicide

Luis Medina, a manager in the music director’s office at KPFA then calls Miss Wilson just hours prior to the scheduled broadcast and leaves a voicemail message warning her that it was very important for the broadcast not to occur. He also stated that there might be very serious repercussions taken if she were to proceed as planned.

Miss Wilson, whom has been a programmer on Ear Thyme, Jazz Passages and The Gospel Experience, among other programs, for ten years at KPFA, was all alone in the studio that holiday weekend from 6:00 am was terrified and frightened by all the threatening emails and voicemails from KPFA’s management and Oakland City Attorney Russo she had received. She did not know what to expect during every second and at every turn of the show. (for more visit page KPFA Show Host Combats Censorship By Oakland City Attorney John Russo
In Katz’s email above, with the approval Mark Moromodi, Russo requests Wilson and Program Director Lilley to answer questions as to why Wilson wanted Russo on the show and proclaimed that Russo was not involved in the case. He further directs them to host a show on the great work that Russo is doing with tenants in foreclosure. Yet he expressed his desire to censor the show with the comment that he was “concerned” because he alleged al-Hakim “had posted weird and threatening videos about John Russo on YouTube” so he wanted to know why they “was giving this guy a forum”.

See Video: Russo Entrapped In Extrinsic Fraud, Planted Evidence!!!

Russo never declined the invitation to appear on the show and arrangements were made for him or any of the invited guests to appear via remote-phone broadcast from any location he chose. There was no issue regarding his security and therefore no reason to fear anyone.
al-Hakim’s alleged “weird and threatening videos about John Russo on YouTube” certainly are not weird, he has over 100 videos posted on his YouTube Channel as a resource for the collaborators on two film, music and documentaries that he is working on, including one on this corruption case. The videos range from slavery to “Jim Crow”, the Civil Rights/social unrest of the 1950’s and the Free Love/Anti-War Movements, to the current Hip-Hop culture. There are videos of many of his clients heavyweight Championships bouts to Grammy Award winners performances, concerts from Russia and Romania to commercials with children, from his own appearances at the ESPN ESPY Awards to news broadcast on ABC-TV. The videos have never been censored by YouTube, have had tens of thousands of views, with mostly “Five-Star” ratings and comments that cover the gamut! They are only threatening to Russo because of their deadly TRUTH!!! The same TRUTH that Russo can not afford for the public to know! This is the same reason why he threatened Wilson, then forced the cancelation and censorship of the show.
If Russo is truly not involved in the case, what does he have to fear from such a harmless broadcast that does not concern him? Why would he care what was aired on KPFA? Does he get involved in censoring any other programs on air? Is he such a “vigilante” on any other programs that he is NOT involved in?
Russo was certainly prepared to appear on a show to boast about his racist enforcement of the foreclosure laws. So why was he so adamant about censoring the show and not allowing this broadcast on his corruption? What does Mr. Whistle Blower, Transparency, Accountability, and Civic Reform in cleaning up Government and Law Enforcement aimed at restoring public confidence in government while maintaining the Highest Ethical Standards have to hide from the public?
JOHN RUSSO IS GUILTY OF CORRUPTION AND HAS UNCLEAN HANDS!!!
Unfortunately this is not the first time that Russo has engaged in censorship, intimidation, coercion, fraud and varied illegal tactics, quite the contrary, they have been his trademark in this case.

See Video: Russo “We’ll Shut You Down!!!”

In a Neighborhood Law Corp promotional video regarding another widely media exposed lawsuit against alleged slumlords, Oakland City Attorney John Russo boasts that certain landlords were being “intransigent” in cooperating with the City so “he attacked them with an army of law enforcement and City Officials”.
Russo and City Auditor Cortney Ruby stateded  they truly believe “that we want citizens to do as the City choses voluntarily, and if not, we will compel citizens to do it and if they fail- we will shut them down!”
As this “kick the minorities and stomp them when you get them down” tactic employed by Russo and the City Attorneys, shouldn’t they be shut down for their continued failure and refusal to provide answers why Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez, and former City Attorney Jane Williams and former employee Pat Smith provided the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year and failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file!? They have all failed and refused to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpoena for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpoena for trial testimony and have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1 million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 12 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He did this with the aid of this same army of City Officials!

Twitter Engaged In Censorship Regarding the Corruption on Behalf of Attorney General Jerry Brown, Oakland City Attorney John Russo and Alameda County D.A. Tom Orloff
(for more visit page Twitter Engages In Censorship
Shortly after Russo forced censorship of the KPFA broadcast of the show on his corruption, NowTruth.org sent out a Twitter message to their followers with a copy of the email from Alex Katz clearly exposing his hand in the censoring of the show. The next day the twitter account was “suspended” for allegedly replying to tweets and “suspicious activity”!.
There is NOTHING suspicious about this activity and the tweets established their validity. Nowtruth has received several @mentions from people sympathetic to Brown, Russo and Orloff whom have tried tirelessly to silence this case and the information about it from getting out to the masses in an effort to protect them.
Just as Russo proceeded to engage in censorship by forcing the cancellation of the show and trying to conceal it from the public, those actions are public now as the reporter released a statement on their crimes of which this is merely another instance of. Now Twitter has joined them by engaging in censorship.
Twitter has failed and refused to respond to just what the alleged “suspicious activity” was, if and how it was investigated, what were the findings of that investigation, AND they have failed and refused to answer the burning question of whether they had been contacted by any of these parties, their agents, employees or their representatives, including Alex Katz, Joe Trippi, Jeremy D. Thompson, or anyone else regarding the “suspension” for the alleged “suspicious activity”
One certainly knows that if you were investigating suspicious activity in this case, you need to take a look at the actions of those that got Twitter to comply with their desire to censor this case and their continuing crimes for which Twitter founder Evan Williams, co-founder Biz Stone, and Twitter are now involved. al-Hakim and Nowtruth.org will not stop their civil and criminal investigation in this matter as they proceed, it only widens and deepens in it’s breadth and depth.
There’s nothing even remotely suspicious about the tweet, we will not be censored, and we are continuing to investigate ALL of these parties and their representatives, including Alex Katz, Joe Trippi, Jeremy D. Thompson, Twitter, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and their suspicious activity and to prosecute those involved in these continuing crimes.
NowTruth.org Website Hacked After Twitter Message On Corruption
On December 1, 2009 al-Hakim sent out another twitter message to his following regarding the censorship of the show with a link to the stories on NowTruth.org and that evening, the NowTruth.org website was hacked and sabotaged. Out of over 20 pages on the site, only 4 that address the corruption of Judge Jon Tigar, Brown, Orloff and Russo were damaged such that the public could not view them at all rendering the tweet and link useless. Is this not another example of their censorship?

********
City Attorney Jayne Williams Corruption Set Aside ALL Cases

How important is it to the integrity and validity of the proper investigation and analysis of high profile crimes that the finder of fact is in fact guilty of corruption, collusion, conspiracy, extrinsic fraud, breaching the chain of custody giving the case files to defendants for nearly a year, fabricating evidence, planting fabricated evidence in case files and providing that spoliated case file to the courts without informing the court! This fact alone would bring all of their cases under scrutiny with the potential to be overturned!
Jayne Williams is the managing principal of Meyers Nave and the current City Attorney for the City of San Leandro. While at Meyers Nave, Jayne has served as City Attorney to the City of Suisun City and as Interim City Attorney for the Cities of Stockton and Merced.
By their own testament, “Meyers Nave routinely represents public agencies in high profile internal investigations such as the one for San Jose Evergreen Community College District as an independent investigation into the allegations of financial and administrative improprieties by Chancellor Rosa Perez and the investigation conducted by attorneys Jayne Williams and Kimberly Colwell on behalf of BART into the actions of all the officers present during the New Year’s Day shooting death of Oscar Grant.”

The Charges:

On May 5, 2010 Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim filed “Notice of Complaint” and on June 7, 2010 filed and served a 200 page Corruption, Extrinsic Fraud, Criminal Misconduct, Ethics and “Whistle-Blower” Complaint complete with audio CD on Congresswoman Barbara Lee, State Assemblyman Sandre Swanson, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, Alameda County Presiding Court Judge Jon R. Rolefson, Alameda County Supervisor Kieth Carson, Oakland California Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindheim, Oakland City Auditor Courtney Ruby, Oakland City Councilpersons Desley Brooks and Larry Reid’s offices, and is being submitted to the Alameda County Grand Jury while California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s office refused service of their complaint! You can read and/or download the Complaint and the exhibits here if you choose

The formal complaints establishing Managing Principal Partner of the law firm Meyers Nave, Former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams and the Parties named have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT by giving the case files to defendant Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski, and Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening for nearly a year; then clearly constructed fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts; they committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity with this unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files to accommodate the defendants litigation strategy in both the CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case.
They have committed criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the California Cannons strikes at the heart of al-Hakim’s fundamental civil and human rights, and the right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution. These actions qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh Rights Act, the Ralph Civil Rights Act and the Bane Act, while they are clear crimes of religious bigotry and intolerance, as such, this conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the City Attorney’s Office operates “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. This deprivation of al-Hakim’s civil, human and due process rights by the law enforcement body of the City Attorneys’ office of Oakland “rise to the level of criminal activity and misconduct” by local and federal law enforcement officials. These criminal actions by Russo and his staff demand they be issued court ordered subpoena to testify.  You can read and/or download the Complaint and the exhibits here if you choose

The formal complaints establishing Managing Principal Partner of the law firm Meyers Nave, Former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams and the Parties named have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT by giving the case files to defendant Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski, and Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening for nearly a year; then clearly constructed fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts; they committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity with this unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files to accommodate the defendants litigation strategy in both the CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case.
They have committed criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the California Cannons strikes at the heart of al-Hakim’s fundamental civil and human rights, and the right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution. These actions qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh Rights Act, the Ralph Civil Rights Act and the Bane Act, while they are clear crimes of religious bigotry and intolerance, as such, this conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the City Attorney’s Office operates “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. This deprivation of al-Hakim’s civil, human and due process rights by the law enforcement body of the City Attorneys’ office of Oakland “rise to the level of criminal activity and misconduct” by local and federal law enforcement officials. These criminal actions by Russo and his staff demand they be issued court ordered subpoena to testify. Here is a complete copy of the Russo Williams Complaint with Exhibits

City Attorney, Defendants Perjurious Claim of Innocence
Since 1999 Managing Principal Partner of the law firm Meyers Nave, former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez and the Oakland City Attorney’s Office has always maintained that the City of Oakland case file in the Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim vs. The City of Oakland matter from the 1991 backup were missing and were last requested for viewing by defendant Ron Cook.
For over eight (8) years CSAA defense counsel Stephan Barber had denied that he had anything to do with the handling, disappearance, transportation, having possession, copying or returning of the City of Oakland case file in the al-Hakim matter from the 1991 backup. He has repeatedly stated that he “never touched the file” and “knew nothing about it”.

Corrupt Judge Michael Ballachey

In August 1, 2007 al-Hakim had the court issuance of trial subpoenas served on Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, John Russo, Janie Wong and Anita Hong to submit to trial testimony beginning September 7, 2007 regarding the handling of the City file. (See Exhibit C here is a complete copy of the Russo Williams Complaint with Exhibits)

Demetruis Shelton, current President of the National Bar Association and City Attorney employee left a voicemail message for al-Hakim acknowledging that Russo had in fact received the Trial Subpoenas!

The requested depositions and investigation concerns trial Judge David C. Lee’s allowance of the illegal product of fabricated and planted evidence, spoliated evidence and unclean hands by defendant/hostile intervener AAA Insurance; Cook and Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; defense counsel Steve Barber and the law firm of Ropers Majeski; the other underlying defendants; and the Oakland City Attorney’s Office run by John Russo to be admitted as evidence, subjected to testimony, and fostered it’s use to prejudice the jury. During the trial, testimony revealed that there were numerous documents and photos of a very damning nature to the defense and AAA as the hostile intervener, that were missing, altered, or incomplete. Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, though they live in three different counties, all coincidentally hired the same Oakland defense firm run by former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams whom was responsible for providing the files to the defendants initially that was then given to her client Judge Lee for trial by John Russo.

Corrupt Judge David C. Lee

During the recent CSAA trial, in April 2008, defendant Ron Cook admitted on the witness stand that he received the City file from Barber before October 1999. Barber then admitted during the next break that he got the file from the City and arranged to have it copied by AKON Copying Service and that he had said file until June 2000. It was not stolen, misplaced, nor had he absconded with it, it was given to him by the City Attorneys office!!!
As a protective measure for his co-defendants, Judge Jon Tigar had ruled that Barber would have to testify and answer al-Hakim’s charges of spoliation of evidence and subornation of perjurious testimony stemming from his handling of the City file if there was more than one case file. If there was ever more than one case file, they were ALL missing and that fact was attributed to CSAA’s attorneys by the City Attorney. Clearly, Mr. Barber now has to leave the seat as defense counsel and take the stand as a witness and defendant! You can see video of Tigar’s ruling!
Cook and Barber’s admissions now corroborates the story that was told to al-Hakim and his attorneys Mike Michel and Jeff Fackler in July 2000 by Oakland City Attorney’s Janie Wong and Anita Hong. However, since 1999 Janie Wong, Anita Hong and Russo have always maintained that the files were missing and were last requested for viewing by defendant Ron Cook. This statement is also perjurious and deceitful as we now know that the December 1, 2005 written statement by Oakland City Attorney John Russo about Anita Hong leaving the case files at the office counter and no one coming to review them is willfully and intentionally perjurious, deceitful and fraudulent.
The City Attorney has failed and refused to effectively respond and such a non response, to ignore the fact that they have been caught in these illegal transgressions, reveals that John Russo and the City Attorney’s office was an accomplice to the breaking of the chain of custody of the evidence that was spoliated by the unclean hands of the hostile intervener, allowed the court to make the file a part of the record, and presented the fabricated evidence planted in the case files and spoliated evidence at trial. al-Hakim asserts that Russo’s and the City Attorney’s Office and the hostile intervener’s misconduct in connection with the Rescue case qualified for “unclean hands” as their actions meet the requirement that, to be considered as unclean hands, a party’s misbehavior must relate to the transaction in suit and to the adversary party.

Jayne Williams, John Russo, the Oakland City Attorneys Office
and CSAA Worked with The Defense Against It’s Own Insured

al-Hakim has asserted that as relevant to whether these actions of Jayne Williams, John Russo, the Oakland City Attorneys Office and al-Hakim’s own insurance carrier, CSAA, there are equally as serious charges with regards to the actions of Jayne Williams; John Russo; the Oakland City Attorneys Office; CSAA; Cook and Willoughby Stuart & Bening; Barber and Ropers Majeski participation in the orchestration of defendants Rescue Rooter and Bay Area Carpet’s defense strategy against their client rather than represent al-Hakim as required by law. The witness testimony and evidence that was procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious testimony by them and the defendants, they engaged in actions to interfere with their client and litigant’s legal case, engaged in actions to coverup the unlawful act of suborn and solicited perjurious testimony, committed fraud upon the court of the State of California, aided and abetted criminal activity, committed willful, criminal and corrupt perjury, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony, fraudulent concealment, spoliation of evidence with the City of Oakland, their unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files, has committed patterned willful, criminal, and corrupt deception and fraud upon the court, extrinsic fraud, spoliation of evidence with the disappearance of court records, and qualify for the doctrine of unclean hands.
Judge John Tigar’s Admission of Fabricated Evidence, Planted in Case Files Tainted, and Spoiled by the Hostile Intervener and the Oakland City Attorney
The only evidence produced by CSAA in their defense at trial during the al-Hakim vs. CSAA trial in April 2008 was the two fabricated notes allegedly from Pat Smith taken at the time of the occurrence of 1991 back up. There was no other evidence lodged with the court reflected in the minutes of the hearing. The hearing was held in al-Hakim’s noticed absence as he was attending a funeral after a second death during the trial of an over 40 year friend.

THE AUGUST 1999 CITY NOTE

al-Hakim had served a trial subpoena upon defendant Ron Cook to produce his entire case file at trial. Cook appeared at trial with less than 15 boxes of files claiming that these were the only ones he felt was responsive to the subpoena. Upon review of the files provided, it was clear that there were just many, many duplicates of the same documents copied over and over without there being any new information provided. al-Hakim had also subpoenaed Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening yet no one else appeared or provided their case files pursuant to the subpoena claiming that they knew nothing about the case and it was Cook’s alone as an unsupervised “independent contractor”.
During a review of Cooks files in the court room while trial was recessed for a week, al-Hakim found a document in Ron Cook’s copies of the City of Oakland files which was a note entitled “Al-Hakim v. C/O (92416)” with two bates stamp numbers 001323 and 000002 (See one page note under Exhibit C here is a complete copy of the Russo Williams Complaint with Exhibits) that was discovered on April 2, 2008 during trial subject to subpoena. This document apparently states a list of “documents not provided to council requesting file”, and further mentions “Attorney-Client and work product documents”. These notes clearly address:

1) conversations between and a one page memo from EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen) to RWH (City Attorney Randy Hall) and former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on August 27, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
2) another conversation between and a one page memo from EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen) to former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on August 27, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
3) Two pages of hand-written notes from JWW (City Attorney Jayne W. Williams) to RWH (City Attorney Randy Hall) and former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on September 3, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
4) Undated, one page hand-written note from JLW (City Attorney Janie L. Wong) to persons unknown;
5) Undated, one page hand-written note from former City Attorney employee Pat Smith SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City to EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen);
6) Two pages of undated, unaddressed, nondescript notes for placement into the City file.
For years al-Hakim has asked for answers to the illuminating question of “Where are the rest of Pat Smith’s alleged City case file notes allegedly taken contemporaneously during her two years of involvement from 1991-1993 in this case?”.
There was never any answer because there were no notes other than the two pages of notes (See two pages of notes under Exhibit C here is a complete copy of the Russo Williams Complaint with Exhibits) that were fabricated and planted into the City file after August 1999 by the Oakland City Attorney’s mentioned herein and at the behest of the defense attorney Stephan Barber.
Deputy defense-counsel Judge Jon Tigar had ruled in pre-trail conference that Pat Smith’s notes would be admitted as evidence despite the fact that he noted that Judge David Lee had ruled them inadmissible in the Rescue trial. This is inconsistent with his ruling of all the previous orders of other judges relative to this case, no matter how remote, would prevail in this case and remain in full effect as he ruled on them and cited the prior judges ruling. Perhaps more revealing is that ALL those orders that he ruled on with the alleged support of previous judges orders were ALL against al-Hakim’s interest. During pre-trial conference al-Hakim had stated to the court that the defendants could not and would not produce any of the witnesses from the Rescue trial and none would appear at this trial because they all were known to have committed perjury. During the trial Defense counsel Barber stated to the court that he had tried to locate Pat Smith at the City of San Francisco but she no longer worked there and requested of the court that Pat Smith be allowed to testify through her notes and the Rescue transcript. al-Hakim raised the issue that the defendants had not provided any proof of their efforts to locate and serve Smith and alleging that they merely tried to reach her at her former place of employment was not enough. Tigar stated that he had read the Rescue trial testimony and notes of Pat Smith and would allow the transcript and her notes to be admitted as evidence if there was agreement that she would not appear as a witness. There was never any agreement between the parties on her not appearing as a witness and though Tigar knew there was no such agreement, Tigar admitted her testimony and notes into evidence at trial on August 6, 2008 while al-Hakim was absent attending a funeral for a second death during the trial. Jayne Williams, John Russo and Oakland City Attorney Was Aware At All Times Whom Had The Files And Why!!

Oakland City File Note Refutes Defendants Recision Claim!

This evidence proves that the Oakland City Attorney’s Office knew at all times that defendants CSAA, Ron Cook and defense counsel Stephan Barber had the case files, that they provided the case files to them, that Pat Smith’s notes were clearly constructed in fraud and planted in the case files by the Oakland City Attorney’s Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, and former Senior Investigator Pat Smith at the behest of defendants CSAA, Ron Cook, defense counsel Stephan Barber, and underlying defendants Rescue Rooter with their counsel William Jemmott and Bay Area Carpets with their counsel Todd Jones. al-Hakim has previously served several deposition and trial subpoenas on ALL the parties named above and they have all failed to appear every time.
Since Pat Smith was terminated from the al-Hakim v. City of Oakland case for lying, fraud, and presenting false evidence before it was settled in September 1993 and she was fired from Oakland City employment shortly thereafter in 1994, there is no logical reason for her to have had such close and alleged privileged contact, conversations, and the sending and receiving of documents between her and Oakland City Attorneys Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong in August 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER she was fired by the City of Oakland. As she said at the Rescue trial while being examined by Rescue defense counsel William Jemmott under oath she “required her notes to respond to questions” because she could not remember what lies she had to testify to without them. The notes she previously alleged to have “created those notes at or near the time of the event as part of her claims file” is simply untrue. Her notes and testimony is why the defendants could not and would not ever produce her for testimony at trial and Oakland City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong could not and would not ever appear for testimony at deposition or trial in this or the underlying case.

Jayne W. Williams and Meyers Nave Response to Complaint
On Wednesday, June 23, 2010 Nowtruth.org received a web message posted via the “contact us” form from Lindsey Staples of Meyers Nave demanding that the “photo of Jayne Williams be removed by June 25, as it is not for general public use per agreement with our photographer”. The communication failed to address any of the charges in the complaints filed on May 5, and June 7, 2010.

Jayne W. Williams and Meyers Nave

Corrupt Judge Richard Hodge

Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, though they live in three different counties, all coincidentally hired the same Oakland defense firm, Meyers Nave, run by former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams whom was responsible for providing the files to the defendants initially that was then given to her client Judge Lee for trial by John Russo. (See July 26, 2006 letter from Kim Colwell under Exhibit B here is a complete copy of the Russo Williams Complaint with Exhibits)
al-Hakim was stumped for years trying to find “Jane Williams” and was unsuccessful until recently while attending a Oscar Grant Town Hall meeting someone mentioned the Meyers Nave report on the abuses of the BART police in his murder and the general professional and ethical nature of the force. Curious about the alleged findings, al-Hakim did a web search and was surprised to find out that the principle of Meyers Nave and the City Attorney of San Leandro was none other than “Jayne Williams”! From there he found her active in many investigative roles as the finder of fact in case involving high level, high profile, governmental crimes.
Recently, Ms. Williams was retained as part of the Meyers Nave team selected by the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) to conduct a confidential internal affairs investigation of the officer-involved shooting death of Oscar Grant. This New Year’s Day incident gained public attention throughout the Bay Area and the nation, and sparked protests that extended for a number of weeks following the shooting. The investigation reviewed the actions of the police officers who were involved in the incident to determine any potential misconduct.
As reported in The San Jose Business Journal’s, Jayne Williams, and Meyers Nave were retained by San Jose Evergreen Community College District Board of Trustees to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations of financial and administrative improprieties by Chancellor Rosa Perez. In November 2009 these allegations were reported in three KGO news telecasts and a San Jose Mercury News article. Because of the significant public interest and attention generated by these news reports, the District Board decided that an independent investigation should be conducted and that the investigation report should be made available to the public, to the extent legally permissible. The investigation team, led by Jayne Williams, conducted a five-month investigation into the various allegations and produced a comprehensive report with findings, recommendations and conclusions that was released by the District to the public at a news conference on May 21, 2010.
Their website proudly boasts “Meyers Nave routinely represents public agencies in high profile internal investigations such as this investigation for San Jose Evergreen Community College District and the investigation conducted by attorneys Jayne Williams and Kimberly Colwell on behalf of BART into the actions of all the officers present during the New Year’s Day shooting death of Oscar Grant.

She and Meyers Nave worked with John Russo and the City of Oakland in a lawsuit against police officers that claimed they had been underpaid for working extra hours and for the time they spent putting on their uniforms, and that loss/settlement will pay $1.75 million in legal fees and costs and will offer vacation time and money to the officers. Under a tentative agreement reached this week, the city will cover the plaintiffs’ legal fees. More than 500 current officers will receive an average of 130 vacation hours each, and about 60 retired officers each will be paid $3,500, said Rocky Lucia, an attorney for the officers.
She also worked with Russo and the City Attorney’s Office in the April 2008 injunction that would have banned plastic shopping bags from landfills against the Oakland City’s ordinance. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch said that the city failed to conduct a full review of how the ban would affect the environment.
Judge Frank Roesch Corruption Leads to Unjust Enrichment as “Our Trash is His CASH!”

Corrupt Judge Frank Roesch

In his ruling, Roesch ignored his conflict of having an interest in a garbage company, said, “It is because of that evidence in the record and the unanimity of the uncertainty whether paper bags are less (or more) environmentally friendly than plastic bags that the city cannot assert that there is ‘no possibility’ of any significant environmental effect caused by the ban.”
In a statement, Keith Christman, senior director of the American Chemistry Council’s plastics division, said, “They also take up more space in landfills.” “Banning plastic bags would dramatically increase energy use, double greenhouse gas emissions and increase waste. Recycling plastic bags is the right approach and makes plastic bags the environmentally responsible choice.” He said, “We encourage the city to help Oakland residents improve the recycling of plastic bags consistent with AB 2449, California’s state-wide recycling program,” and “Plastics are a valuable resource – too valuable to waste — and we believe effective implementation of the state’s recycling program is the best and fastest way to steward environmental resources and reduce litter by recycling these bags.”
Michael Mills, the attorney for the Coalition to Support Plastic Bag Recycling, said internal e-mails between Oakland officials last year indicate that they admit that compostable plastic bags aren’t any better for the environment than are regular plastic shopping Bags and he believes Oakland officials only approved the ordinance for “feel-good public relations spin.”
“Uuuuuh a CaCa Roesch is in The Garbage!!!”
Recently Oakland and other parts of the East Bay area wallowed in its own filth with a month’s worth of garbage piling up in the streets from the recent garbage lockout/strike. We know that garbage strikes can be nasty; it was in a garbage strike dispute that Martin Luther King was killed.
The recent lockout affected about 200,000 Waste Management of Alameda County customers in Oakland, Emeryville, San Ramon, Livermore, Albany, Hayward, Newark, Castro Valley and Oro Loma sanitary districts and some unincorporated areas but not other areas of the East Bay. WHY? Ask Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch.
Alameda County Superior Court Law and Motion Judge Frank Roesch has risen the perception of judicial misconduct to a new all time low in official graft and carpet bagging corruption of buying and selling influence and the power of the gavel in the bowels of justice to secure illicit personal gains in politics and business.
The renegade “Caca” Roesch, whom is of latino descent when it is advantageous, is Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tri-City Economic Development Corporation, a local non-profit recycling company that has recently been awarded large contracts for garbage collections and recycling with the Cities of Hayward and Union City and received over $8.5 million dollars in funding supported through tax-exempt bonds that were approved by the California Pollution Control Financing Authority, chaired by state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, a Hayward resident.
Tri-City Economic Development Corporation, doing business as Tri-CED Community Recycling, a tax-exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation with no stockholders list it’s key officials as:
Frank Roesch, Board Chair
Richard Valle, President and CEO
Michael Mahoney, Secretary/Treasurer
33377 Western Avenue, Union City, California 94587
On Tuesday, December 12, 2006 at the City of Union City, City Council/Redevelopment Agency Meeting, at 7:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers at 34009 Alvarado Niles Road, Judge Frank Roesch performed the swearing in of Richard Valle. Councilmember Valle thanked his family and supporters for helping him to win re-election. Roesch also performed the swearing in of Councilmember Manny Fernandez.
On February 6, 2007, the City Council of Union City awarded Tri-City Economic Development Corporation, doing business as Tri-CED Community Recycling, a tax-exempt, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation with no stockholders that is allegedly in the business of collecting curbside wastes in the cities of Union City and Hayward, and provides community recycling, education, job training and economic development a $5,595,937 loan through the California Pollution Control Financing Authority Bond Financing Program and assistance from The Small Business Assistance Fund. The company has recently received over $8.5 million dollars in funding.
The City Council Authority received letters in support of the Project from Assemblymembers Mary Hayashi and Alberto O. Torrico and Senator Ellen M. Corbett. Months earlier leading up to the loan, Senator Ellen Corbett held a private closed door session with the Union City Council.
Recently filed December 2006 State of California statements of political fundraising and contributions of politicians reveal contributions to the campaigns of these politicians by “Caca” Roesch and company.
Roesch and TRI-CED used what can clearly be perceived as official and political graft with corrupt influence in securing the contract with the City of Hayward. In June 2006, Michael Sweeney was elected Mayor for the City of Hayward and had been appointed by the City of Hayward to the Board of Directors of the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency in 2006. Mayor Sweeney was first elected to Hayward’s City Council in 1982, and previously served as Mayor from 1990 to 1994. He became a member of the state legislature representing the 18th Assembly District from 1994 to 1998. From 1999 to 2003, he served as Governor Gray Davis’ Undersecretary for the California Resources Agency. He assisted the Secretary in developing policy and overseeing a $5.2 billion budget and 31 departments, conservancies, boards and commissions. Sweeney worked as a consultant with TRI-CED were he assisted TRI-CED with the development of their e-waste program, community relations, contract negotiations, and obtaining the grant funding. The political connections are like a veritable Who’s Who in local/statewide politics with TRI-CED employing, among many others, the services of John Dutra, former Assemblymember, to give presentations. Something smells besides the garbage in the East Bay but rest assured there will not be a strike in cockroach’s land. If an African-American judge or politician had done this they would be Under jail!
Frank “Caca” Roesch has been charged in legal proceedings with, among others, exhibiting willful corrupt misconduct, hostility, bias and prejudice, is an unmitigating liar, crook, thief, racist, bigot, has unclean hands, and is incapable of the fair and proper administration of justice and has gone to extreme lengths to establish that fact as he finds truth inconvenient, evidence oppressive, law inapplicable, and justice intolerable!. He simply utters convenient lies that do not pass the applicable test of truth.
But in Oakland, City Attorney John Russo and city officials said garbage was stacking up, Waste Management was in breach of contract, the trash created a public nuisance, and they had received more than 3,000 complaints which lead the city to ask an Alameda County Superior Court judge to issue a court order compelling the garbage hauler to pick up trash. Oddly enough Russo himself has been subpoenaed for the City Attorney’s own role in spoliation of evidence, subornation of perjurious testimony, and unclean hands in turning over the court files to a defendant in a case for six months, not notifying the court of the brake in the chain of custody of the files, nor the critical missing documents after the return of the files by the defense counsel.
Judge Richard Keller issued that injunction after holding a contempt-of-court hearing. Waste Management faced fines of as much as $2,500 for every missed collection beyond the contracted 20 missed collections per day in Oakland.

The Pick up of Garbage was Clearly Defined by Racial and Economic Lines

A survey of homes and businesses from Albany to San Ramon found that trash is being taken away on time in well-to-do neighborhoods.
Service in poorer neighborhoods , particularly in the Oakland flatlands, Fruitvale, East Oakland and West Oakland is spottier. Garbage bins were overflowing days, even weeks after the trash was supposed to have been picked up, but no garbage trucks had been by since the lockout began.
“I call them every day and (the phone) is busy, busy, busy,” store proprietor Mohammad Ali said, looking at the bin near the intersection of 34th and Helen streets. “Customers come in and tell us about it. They think it is because we didn’t pay the bill. But we tell them it isn’t our fault.”
Elteaser Lomax, with her primary residence on Rhoda Avenue near MacArthur Boulevard in the modest Dimond district of Oakland. “The smell is terrible,” Lomax said. She received a recorded message from Waste Management on Sunday saying her garbage would be picked up this week, but it wasn’t.
A store clerk who would only give his last name of Krishna said he had called Waste Management several times to complain. “I don’t know what they’re doing or when they’re doing it,” he said. “I know they’re not cleaning it up.”
“People down here pay dues here, too,” said Shaunté Childs, 19, on 98th Avenue, where trash bins weren’t being picked up.
Scott Haggerty, president of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, said his office had received complaints that “lower-income areas of the county are not being paid as much attention to.”
Waste Management spokeswoman Monica Devincenzi denied that the company was picking up trash in more affluent areas at the expense of poorer neighborhoods.
Service was more predictable in more affluent areas, in Oakland and elsewhere. At Montclair Village, a shopping center in the hills above Highway 13, the Montclair Egg Shop restaurant had its garbage picked up on Wednesdays and Fridays, as scheduled.
“Everything is like normal,” said Mario Maita, a server at the restaurant. “No problems.”
In Albany, Dave Lyons had noticed no disruption of service. He’d know, too. Not only does he regularly walk his dog Gus near Santa Fe Avenue, he’s a real estate appraiser and is always eyeballing properties.
If garbage is getting picked up more often in middle-class and wealthier neighborhoods than in poorer ones, Lyons knows why.
“I’m 63 years old, and this is about money and power and clout,” Lyons said. “Look around at this neighborhood. There’s Wall Street Journals on the doorsteps here. I’m just guessing that if the people in charge of picking up the garbage are going to decide where not to pick it up, it’s going to be in the neighborhoods where people don’t vote, they don’t complain and they don’t have clout.”
Residents served by Waste Management on tree-lined Tahiti Drive and Bahama Court near the Crow Canyon Country Club in San Ramon aren’t complaining either. The trash is scheduled to be picked up today, and no one’s expecting any delays.
“Last week, they picked up mine,” said resident Dennis Dutra. “As far as I know, it’s business as usual.”
Cindy Simons, a Castro Valley woman filed a class-action lawsuit against Waste Management claiming they breached its contact as well as broke state business codes when they continued to take payments from residents when it was not providing trash collection service. The suit seeks reimbursement for money already paid Waste Management as well as damages.
How important is it to the integrity and validity of the proper investigation and analysis of high profile crimes that the finder of fact is in fact guilty of corruption, collusion, conspiracy, extrinsic fraud, breaching the chain of custody giving the case files to defendants for nearly a year, fabricating evidence, planting fabricated evidence in case files and providing that spoliated case file to the courts without informing the court! This fact alone would bring all of their cases under scrutiny with the potential to be overturned!

LEGAL IMPLICATIONS

The many other new claims including abuse of discretion, gross misconduct, conduct prejudicial, gross negligence, bias, the subornation and solicitation of perjurious testimony charges are inextricably intertwined with the truthful testimony and conduct of the named Judges Lee, Hodge and Ballachey; Defendant’s and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; CSAA and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; Ron Cook and Willoughby Stuart & Bening and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; and the City of Oakland Attorneys’ office, suggest that all documents, notes, meetings and conversations with and of the respective judges, witnesses, experts, defendants and counsels are admissible as to these charges for which there is no impunity.
Perhaps the single most important reason why Victoria Henley, former Presiding Alameda County Superior Court Judge Yolanda Northridge, Presiding Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jon Rolefson and Ronald George, heads of the disciplinary bodies responsible for taking corrective action in this case, has been so derelict in doing so, is because they are inextricably placed in the legal paradox where every judge, court administrator, attorney, law firm, defendant and their agents having been involved in committing these crimes, opens the way to legally setting aside every case they were ever involved with and potentially being reversed at an untold cost of money, integrity and irreparable loss of public confidence in the legal system.

Rolefson, Alameda County Supervisor Kieth Carson, Oakland California Mayor Ron Dellums, Oakland City Administrator Dan Lindheim, Oakland City Auditor Courtney Ruby, Oakland City Councilpersons Desley Brooks and Larry Reid’s offices, and is being submitted to the Alameda County Grand Jury while California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s office refused service of their complaint! You can read and/or download the Complaint and the exhibits here if you choose or go to the website for complete coverage here http://nowtruth.org/city-attorneys-russo-williams-complaint-for-corruption-extrinsic-fraud-ethics/The Complaint is against:

1. Parties to Charges:

Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez and the Oakland City Attorney’s Office; former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams; former City of Oakland employee Pat Smith; Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski; Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Annette Bening’s brother Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; William Jemmott now of the law firm Wilson Elser; Todd Jones and the law firm Archer Norris; Daniel Crowley of the law firm Daniel Crowley & Assoc.; Fletcher Alford, Joel K. Liberson and the law firm Gordon & Rees; Sean Robert O’Halloran now of the law firm Crone Rozynko; Anne Brooks Harrigan now of the law firm Grancell, Lebovitz, Stander, Barnes & Reubens; Yolanda Marnell Jackson- San Francisco BAR Assoc., now of the law firm Jackson Alternative Dispute Resolution; the law firm of Caven, Cleaveland, Murray; the former law firm of Jackson Harrigan; John Ratto and Dean K. Beyer, of ASU Group (formerly D. L. Glaze); defendants Rescue Rooter and Bay Area Carpet Cleaning; and retired Judges David Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge; and others.

2. The Charges:

The Parties have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT by giving the case files to defendant Stephan Barber and others of the law firm Ropers, Majeski, and Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening for nearly a year; then clearly constructed fraudulent fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted that evidence favorable to the defendants in the files SIX years AFTER the case was closed; engaged in spoliation of remaining evidence in the court files from 1991; and fostered witness testimony based on this planted evidence in the al-Hakim v CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case that was created thru EXTRINSIC FRAUD with accompanying testimony procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious acts by John Russo and others, they engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of al-Hakim’s legal case; they engaged in actions to coverup their unlawful acts; they committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity with this unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files to accommodate the defendants litigation strategy in both the CSAA and the underlying Rescue Rooter case.
John Russo, former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams and the Oakland City Attorney office staffs’ criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct, and the California Cannons strikes at the heart of al-Hakim’s fundamental civil and human rights, and the right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution. These actions qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh Rights Act, the Ralph Civil Rights Act and the Bane Act, while they are clear crimes of religious bigotry and intolerance, as such, this conduct rose to the level of consideration for a Federal Crime and a Civil Rights violation because the City Attorney’s Office operates “under the color of law” and certainly the violation of anyone’s civil rights is a federal crime. This deprivation of al-Hakim’s civil, human and due process rights by the law enforcement body of the City Attorneys’ office of Oakland “rise to the level of criminal activity and misconduct” by local and federal law enforcement officials. These criminal actions by Russo and his staff demand they be issued court ordered subpoena to testify.

3. The Liability and Damages:

The Parties have all failed and refused to provide the information sought by al-Hakim, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpoena for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpoena for trial testimony and have caused al-Hakim and family to be forced from their $1 million plus home and office, foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit, and multi million business for 13 years thru the City Attorneys’ violation of the business and professional codes, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with unclean hands, and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

4. City Attorney, Defendants Perjurious Claim of Innocence

Since 1999 Oakland City Attorney John Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton- current President of the National Bar Association, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold, Michele Abney, Eliada Perez and the Oakland City Attorney’s Office has always maintained that the City of Oakland case file in the Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim vs. The City of Oakland matter from the 1991 backup were missing and were last requested for viewing by defendant Ron Cook.
For over eight (8) years CSAA defense counsel Stephan Barber had denied that he had anything to do with the handling, disappearance, transportation, having possession, copying or returning of the City of Oakland case file in the al-Hakim matter from the 1991 backup. He has repeatedly stated that he “never touched the file” and “knew nothing about it”.
In August 1, 2007 al-Hakim had the court issuance of trial subpoenas served on Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, John Russo, Janie Wong and Anita Hong to submit to trial testimony beginning September 7, 2007 regarding the handling of the City file. (See Exhibit C) Demetruis Shelton, current President of the National Bar Association and City Attorney employee left a voicemail message for al-Hakim acknowledging that Russo had in fact received the Trial Subpoenas! A copy of that voice mail here. http://www.box.net/shared/88g62hzaky
The requested depositions and investigation concerns trial Judge David C. Lee’s allowance of the illegal product of fabricated and planted evidence, spoliated evidence and unclean hands by defendant/hostile intervener AAA Insurance; Cook and Willoughby, Stuart & Bening; defense counsel Steve Barber and the law firm of Ropers Majeski; the other underlying defendants; and the Oakland City Attorney’s Office run by John Russo to be admitted as evidence, subjected to testimony, and fostered it’s use to prejudice the jury. During the trial, testimony revealed that there were numerous documents and photos of a very damning nature to the defense and AAA as the hostile intervener, that were missing, altered, or incomplete. Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, though they live in three different counties, all coincidentally hired the same Oakland defense firm run by former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams whom was responsible for providing the files to the defendants initially that was then given to her client Judge Lee for trial by John Russo.
During the recent CSAA trial, in April 2008, defendant Ron Cook admitted on the witness stand that he received the City file from Barber before October 1999. Barber then admitted during the next break that he got the file from the City and arranged to have it copied by AKON Copying Service and that he had said file until June 2000. It was not stolen, misplaced, nor had he absconded with it, it was given to him by the City Attorneys office!!!
As a protective measure for his co-defendants, Judge Jon Tigar had ruled that Barber would have to testify and answer al-Hakim’s charges of spoliation of evidence and subornation of perjurious testimony stemming from his handling of the City file if there was more than one case file. If there was ever more than one case file, they were ALL missing and that fact was attributed to CSAA’s attorneys by the City Attorney. Clearly, Mr. Barber now has to leave the seat as defense counsel and take the stand as a witness and defendant! You can see video of Tigar’s ruling!
Cook and Barber’s admissions now corroborates the story that was told to al-Hakim and his attorneys Mike Michel and Jeff Fackler in July 2000 by Oakland City Attorney’s Janie Wong and Anita Hong. However, since 1999 Janie Wong, Anita Hong and Russo have always maintained that the files were missing and were last requested for viewing by defendant Ron Cook. This statement is also perjurious and deceitful as we now know that the December 1, 2005 written statement by Oakland City Attorney John Russo about Anita Hong leaving the case files at the office counter and no one coming to review them is willfully and intentionally perjurious, deceitful and fraudulent.
The City Attorney has failed and refused to effectively respond and such a non response, to ignore the fact that they have been caught in these illegal transgressions, reveals that John Russo and the City Attorney’s office was an accomplice to the breaking of the chain of custody of the evidence that was spoliated by the unclean hands of the hostile intervener, allowed the court to make the file a part of the record, and presented the fabricated evidence planted in the case files and spoliated evidence at trial. al-Hakim asserts that Russo’s and the City Attorney’s Office and the hostile intervener’s misconduct in connection with the Rescue case qualified for “unclean hands” as their actions meet the requirement that, to be considered as unclean hands, a party’s misbehavior must relate to the transaction in suit and to the adversary party.

5. Judge John Tigar’s Admission of Fabricated Evidence, Planted in Case Files Tainted, and Spoiled by the Hostile Intervener and the Oakland City Attorney

The only evidence produced by CSAA in their defense at trial during the al-Hakim vs. CSAA trial in April 2008 was the two fabricated notes allegedly from Pat Smith taken at the time of the occurrence of 1991 back up. There was no other evidence lodged with the court reflected in the minutes of the hearing. The hearing was held in al-Hakim’s noticed absence as he was attending a funeral after a second death during the trial of an over 40 year friend.

6. THE AUGUST 1999 CITY NOTE

al-Hakim had served a trial subpoena upon defendant Ron Cook to produce his entire case file at trial. Cook appeared at trial with less than 15 boxes of files claiming that these were the only ones he felt was responsive to the subpoena. Upon review of the files provided, it was clear that there were just many, many duplicates of the same documents copied over and over without there being any new information provided. al-Hakim had also subpoenaed Ronald J. Cook, Randy Willoughby, Alex Stuart, Bradley Bening and others of the law firm Willoughby, Stuart & Bening yet no one else appeared or provided their case files pursuant to the subpoena claiming that they knew nothing about the case and it was Cook’s alone as an unsupervised “independent contractor”.
During a review of Cooks files in the court room while trial was recessed for a week, al-Hakim found a document in Ron Cook’s copies of the City of Oakland files which was a note entitled “Al-Hakim v. C/O (92416)” with two bates stamp numbers 001323 and 000002 (See one page note under Exhibit C) that was discovered on April 2, 2008 during trial subject to subpoena. This document apparently states a list of “documents not provided to council requesting file”, and further mentions “Attorney-Client and work product documents”. These notes clearly address:
1) conversations between and a one page memo from EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen) to RWH (City Attorney Randy Hall) and former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on August 27, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
2) another conversation between and a one page memo from EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen) to former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on August 27, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
3) Two pages of hand-written notes from JWW (City Attorney Jayne W. Williams) to RWH (City Attorney Randy Hall) and former City Attorney employee Pat Smith on September 3, 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City;
4) Undated, one page hand-written note from JLW (City Attorney Janie L. Wong) to persons unknown;
5) Undated, one page hand-written note from former City Attorney employee Pat Smith SIX YEARS AFTER Smith was fired by the City to EFA (City Attorney Elizabeth Allen);
6) Two pages of undated, unaddressed, nondescript notes for placement into the City file.
For years al-Hakim has asked for answers to the illuminating question of “Where are the rest of Pat Smith’s alleged City case file notes allegedly taken contemporaneously during her two years of involvement from 1991-1993 in this case?”. There was never any answer because there were no notes other than the two pages of notes (See two pages of notes under Exhibit C) that were fabricated and planted into the City file after August 1999 by the Oakland City Attorney’s mentioned herein and at the behest of the defense attorney Stephan Barber.
Deputy defense-counsel Judge Jon Tigar had ruled in pre-trail conference that Pat Smith’s notes would be admitted as evidence despite the fact that he noted that Judge David Lee had ruled them inadmissible in the Rescue trial. This is inconsistent with his ruling of all the previous orders of other judges relative to this case, no matter how remote, would prevail in this case and remain in full effect as he ruled on them and cited the prior judges ruling. Perhaps more revealing is that ALL those orders that he ruled on with the alleged support of previous judges orders were ALL against al-Hakim’s interest. During pre-trial conference al-Hakim had stated to the court that the defendants could not and would not produce any of the witnesses from the Rescue trial and none would appear at this trial because they all were known to have committed perjury. During the trial Defense counsel Barber stated to the court that he had tried to locate Pat Smith at the City of San Francisco but she no longer worked there and requested of the court that Pat Smith be allowed to testify through her notes and the Rescue transcript. al-Hakim raised the issue that the defendants had not provided any proof of their efforts to locate and serve Smith and alleging that they merely tried to reach her at her former place of employment was not enough. Tigar stated that he had read the Rescue trial testimony and notes of Pat Smith and would allow the transcript and her notes to be admitted as evidence if there was agreement that she would not appear as a witness. There was never any agreement between the parties on her not appearing as a witness and though Tigar knew there was no such agreement, Tigar admitted her testimony and notes into evidence at trial on August 6, 2008 while al-Hakim was absent attending a funeral for a second death during the trial.

7. Oakland City Attorney Was Aware At All Times Whom Had The Files And Why
Oakland City File Note Refutes Defendants Recision Claim!

This evidence proves that the Oakland City Attorney’s Office knew at all times that defendants CSAA, Ron Cook and defense counsel Stephan Barber had the case files, that they provided the case files to them, that Pat Smith’s notes were clearly constructed in fraud and planted in the case files by the Oakland City Attorney’s Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, and former Senior Investigator Pat Smith at the behest of defendants CSAA, Ron Cook, defense counsel Stephan Barber, and underlying defendants Rescue Rooter with their counsel William Jemmott and Bay Area Carpets with their counsel Todd Jones. al-Hakim has previously served several deposition and trial subpoenas on ALL the parties named above and they have all failed to appear every time.
Since Pat Smith was terminated from the al-Hakim v. City of Oakland case for lying, fraud, and presenting false evidence before it was settled in September 1993 and she was fired from Oakland City employment shortly thereafter in 1994, there is no logical reason for her to have had such close and alleged privileged contact, conversations, and the sending and receiving of documents between her and Oakland City Attorneys Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong in August 1999- SIX YEARS AFTER she was fired by the City of Oakland. As she said at the Rescue trial while being examined by Rescue defense counsel William Jemmott under oath she “required her notes to respond to questions” because she could not remember what lies she had to testify to without them. The notes she previously alleged to have “created those notes at or near the time of the event as part of her claims file” is simply untrue. Her notes and testimony is why the defendants could not and would not ever produce her for testimony at trial and Oakland City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Randy Hall, Elizabeth Allen, Eliada Perez, Janie Wong, Anita Hong could not and would not ever appear for testimony at deposition or trial in this or the underlying case.

8. Jayne W. Williams

City Attorney Jayne Williams Corruption Set Aside ALL Cases

Retired Judges Lee, Michael Ballachey, and Richard Hodge, though they live in three different counties, all coincidentally hired the same Oakland defense firm, Meyers Nave, run by former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jayne Williams whom was responsible for providing the files to the defendants initially that was then given to her client Judge Lee for trial by John Russo. (See July 26, 2006 letter from Kim Colwell under Exhibit B)
al-Hakim was stumped for years trying to find “Jane Williams” and was unsuccessful until recently while attending a Oscar Grant Town Hall meeting someone mentioned the Meyers Nave report on the abuses of the BART police in his murder and the general professional and ethical nature of the force. Curious about the alleged findings, al-Hakim did a web search and was surprised to find out that the principle of Meyers Nave and the City Attorney of San Leandro was none other than “Jayne Williams”! From there he found her active in many investigative roles as the finder of fact in case involving high level, high profile, governmental crimes.
Jayne Williams is the managing principal of Meyers Nave and the current City Attorney for the City of San Leandro. While at Meyers Nave, Jayne has served as City Attorney to the City of Suisun City and as Interim City Attorney for the Cities of Stockton and Merced.
Recently, Ms. Williams was retained as part of the Meyers Nave team selected by the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) to conduct a confidential internal affairs investigation of the officer-involved shooting death of Oscar Grant. This New Year’s Day incident gained public attention throughout the Bay Area and the nation, and sparked protests that extended for a number of weeks following the shooting. The investigation reviewed the actions of the police officers who were involved in the incident to determine any potential misconduct.
As reported in The San Jose Business Journal’s, Jayne Williams, and Meyers Nave were retained by San Jose Evergreen Community College District Board of Trustees to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations of financial and administrative improprieties by Chancellor Rosa Perez. In November 2009 these allegations were reported in three KGO news telecasts and a San Jose Mercury News article. Because of the significant public interest and attention generated by these news reports, the District Board decided that an independent investigation should be conducted and that the investigation report should be made available to the public, to the extent legally permissible. The investigation team, led by Jayne Williams, conducted a five-month investigation into the various allegations and produced a comprehensive report with findings, recommendations and conclusions that was released by the District to the public at a news conference on May 21, 2010.
Their website proudly boasts “Meyers Nave routinely represents public agencies in high profile internal investigations such as this investigation for San Jose Evergreen Community College District and the investigation conducted by attorneys Jayne Williams and Kimberly Colwell on behalf of BART into the actions of all the officers present during the New Year’s Day shooting death of Oscar Grant. For more information on this investigation or for assistance with internal investigations, please contact Jayne Williams at 800.464.3559.”
“Attorneys at Meyers Nave understand these pressures. In fact, we have earned our reputation by helping public officials find creative solutions to financial, regulatory and legal issues. Our extensive knowledge of all areas of municipal law — coupled with hands-on experience in negotiating and litigating — allows us to cut to the core of most issues and resolve them quickly.”
“Our clients include a number of California’s most forward thinking cities, towns, counties and redevelopment agencies. Our attorneys work closely with public officials — council members, city managers, planning directors, public works directors, finance directors and risk managers — to help manage and optimize programs and initiatives.”

She and Meyers Nave worked with John Russo and the City of Oakland in a lawsuit against police officers that claimed they had been underpaid for working extra hours and for the time they spent putting on their uniforms, and that loss/settlement will pay $1.75 million in legal fees and costs and will offer vacation time and money to the officers. Under a tentative agreement reached this week, the city will cover the plaintiffs’ legal fees. More than 500 current officers will receive an average of 130 vacation hours each, and about 60 retired officers each will be paid $3,500, said Rocky Lucia, an attorney for the officers.
She also worked with Russo and the City Attorney’s Office in the April 2008 injunction that would have banned plastic shopping bags from landfills against the Oakland City’s ordinance. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch said that the city failed to conduct a full review of how the ban would affect the environment.
In his ruling, Roesch ignored his conflict of having an interest in a garbage company, said, “It is because of that evidence in the record and the unanimity of the uncertainty whether paper bags are less (or more) environmentally friendly than plastic bags that the city cannot assert that there is ‘no possibility’ of any significant environmental effect caused by the ban.”
In a statement, Keith Christman, senior director of the American Chemistry Council’s plastics division, said, “They also take up more space in landfills.” “Banning plastic bags would dramatically increase energy use, double greenhouse gas emissions and increase waste. Recycling plastic bags is the right approach and makes plastic bags the environmentally responsible choice.” He said, “We encourage the city to help Oakland residents improve the recycling of plastic bags consistent with AB 2449, California’s state-wide recycling program,” and “Plastics are a valuable resource – too valuable to waste — and we believe effective implementation of the state’s recycling program is the best and fastest way to steward environmental resources and reduce litter by recycling these bags.”
Michael Mills, the attorney for the Coalition to Support Plastic Bag Recycling, said internal e-mails between Oakland officials last year indicate that they admit that compostable plastic bags aren’t any better for the environment than are regular plastic shopping Bags and he believes Oakland officials only approved the ordinance for “feel-good public relations spin.”
How important is it to the integrity and validity of the proper investigation and analysis of high profile crimes that the finder of fact is in fact guilty of corruption, collusion, conspiracy, extrinsic fraud, breaching the chain of custody giving the case files to defendants for nearly a year, fabricating evidence, planting fabricated evidence in case files and providing that spoliated case file to the courts without informing the court! This fact alone would bring all of their cases under scrutiny with the potential to be overturned!

9. CSAA Worked with The Defense Against It’s Own Insured

al-Hakim has asserted that as relevant to whether these actions of al-Hakim’s own insurance carrier, CSAA, there are equally as serious charges with regards to the actions of Cook and Willoughby Stuart & Bening; Barber and Ropers Majeski participation in the orchestration of defendants Rescue Rooter and Bay Area Carpet’s defense strategy against their client rather than represent al-Hakim as required by law. The witness testimony and evidence that was procured thru admitted suborned and solicited perjurious testimony by them and the defendants, they engaged in actions to interfere with their client and litigant’s legal case, engaged in actions to coverup the unlawful act of suborn and solicited perjurious testimony, committed fraud upon the court of the State of California, aided and abetted criminal activity, committed willful, criminal and corrupt perjury, fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, conspiracy, subornation of perjurious testimony and solicitation of perjurious testimony, fraudulent concealment, spoliation of evidence with the City of Oakland, their unpardonable breach in the chain of custody of the court files, has committed patterned willful, criminal, and corrupt deception and fraud upon the court, extrinsic fraud, spoliation of evidence with the disappearance of court records, and has unclean hands.

10. LEGAL IMPLICATIONS

The many other new claims including abuse of discretion, gross misconduct, conduct prejudicial, gross negligence, bias, the subornation and solicitation of perjurious testimony charges are inextricably intertwined with the truthful testimony and conduct of the named Judges Lee, Hodge and Ballachey; Defendant’s and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; CSAA and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; Ron Cook and Willoughby Stuart & Bening and their attorneys, agents, witnesses and experts; and the City of Oakland Attorneys’ office, suggest that all documents, notes, meetings and conversations with and of the respective judges, witnesses, experts, defendants and counsels are admissible as to these charges for which there is no impunity.
Perhaps the single most important reason why Victoria Henley, former Presiding Alameda County Superior Court Judge Yolanda Northridge, Presiding Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jon Rolefson and Ronald George, heads of the disciplinary bodies responsible for taking corrective action in this case, has been so derelict in doing so, is because they are inextricably placed in the legal paradox where every judge, court administrator, attorney, law firm, defendant and their agents having been involved in committing these crimes, opens the way to legally setting aside every case they were ever involved with and potentially being reversed at an untold cost of money, integrity and irreparable loss of public confidence in the legal system.

*******

The Oakland Gang Injunction passed because City Attorney John Russo had the support of ACLU whom has mobilized organizers to support, not fight it, to the peril of the Black Community!
This is nothing but another tool for developers to continue exercising gentrification of the Black Community unopposed because of the apathy and lack of leadership in defending our rights from the so-called Black leaders! Where is the National Action Network, NAACP, CORE, Rainbow Coalition, you or any other national group that alleges to stand for Civil Rights when we are being raped and “Okey Doaked” by the “white liberal” defenders of the public trust?
Every defendant “served”, and I use that term without any credibility under the legal process, with the unconstitutional injunction that has an attorney has been dropped from the matter! But those that are unrepresented are being “convicted” in a civil proceeding with criminal implications because they do not have legal representation provided as in a criminal matter! If just one defaults, the system will entrap the rest of the youth population for ever.
Conveniently the ACLU and LCCR did not represent theses people while filing a Amicus Brief yet venturing into the community with white liberal organizers that will benefit from the demise of the youth punished by the injunction to advocate and pre-sell it’s inevitability and lobby for it’s acceptance as a needed measure to fight crime.
Forget about the “double jeopardy” that these Black youth face in a civil/criminal legal web cast by a crooked City Attorney whom has fabricated and planted that fabricated evidence in a case file, gave the case file to the defendants for nearly a year, and gave the case file to a judge for trial without notifying the court! See more on the City Attorney below.
al-Hakim has mobilized attorney’s to represent these poor, under served youth and secured ALL-Americans, NFL All-Pro, NBA World Champions, North Oakland residents, Oakland Tech High School and U. C. Berkeley classmates Marshawn Lynch and Leon Powe along with several native Oakland celebrities to join national celebrities in this fight! Through the collaboration of the individuals, Powe’s “Fresh Start Oakland”,the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, and others, we will provide the much needed alternatives to these profiled youth to succeed in life and not be eliminated from it because some developers want their families property and them out the neighborhood. WE MUST ACT NOW to end this travesty ASAP!Abdul-Jalil
