Defendant to Appeal Order Granting Plaintiff’s Ex- Parte Motion September 15, 2016 at 9:00 AM in Dept. 507
Hearing Date: September 15, 2016
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Hayward Hall of Justice
24405 Amador Street
Hayward, CA 94544
I am filing this notice to receive the order issued today, September 15, 2016 at 11:00 AM in Dept. 507 granting plaintiff’s Ex- Parte Motion to vacate and set aside our contesting of the tentative ruling and hearing of September 7, 2016.
I also want a transcript of the September 7, 2016 hearing.
It is painfully clear that this order reflects somethings other than the merits of the motion, which I have still NOT received, and the continuing blatant bias and disdain exhibited toward me by Judge Patton will not cease.
From the contemptuous statement in the tentative ruling that I objected to, to his trying to make a record to portray me as some “belligerent NIGGER!” by stating that “you’re pointing at me!”, “stop pointing at me!”, “you’re pointing at me with your pen!” all at the first appearance before him to today where he states in open court “you are your own worst enemy!”, and finally, “this hearing is over, do you want me to call the Sheriffs?!” His woeful attempts to intimidate, bait and provoke me will not be successful yet openly displays his inability to sit in this matter! If he feels THAT threatened by my presence that he has to go out of his way to make it plain to the entire court, he doesn’t belong in this case. There is NO place for this in modern society much less in a courtroom before the people!
Please provide the order ASAP so that we can proceed in earnest to a fair resolution of this heinous 20 year matter of Elder Abuse!

RE: Sewer Connection Installation at 7641 Sunkist Dr., Oakland; Request for Files of City of Oakland Repairs to Sewer Main and Laterals at 7633 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, Ca.; answer to 200 page formal “Whistle-Blower” Criminal Complaint for Corruption, Extrinsic Fraud, Criminal Misconduct, Ethics Violations and Collusion complete with audio CD filed and served on your office on June 7, 2010 stemming from criminal actions committed by the City Attorney’s Office, Mr. Russo and others resulting from the sewer main collapse alongside my home in 1991.
Judges Jon Tigar, Frank Roesch, and Robert Freedman; City Attorneys Barbara Parker and Jayne Williams; City Manager John Russo’s 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!
Dear Deanna J. Santana,
On January 25, 2012 I sent you and most all listed above a fax and email regarding Julius Kale of the Oakland Public Works office with copies to Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and her Chief-of-Staff Richard Cowan; Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker; and Allan Law in the Public Works Office; regarding the alleged repairs made to my property at 7633 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, Ca. We discussed those concerns in a conversation that can be listened to and/or downloaded at: http://www.box.com/s/61971f508caaba0e67bb
On March 8, 2012 I sent him another letter with the same request that also addressed the issues of the many complaints against your City Public Works Department and the coverup taking place with the City Attorney’s Office, among others.
On May 3, 2012 I sent another letter and emailed a copy to most ALL parties above referencing the non-response from the City Attorneys Office and the continuing refusal to provide the requested documents and the fact that the alleged $30,000 in repairs to the sewer and laterals to my property seem to have been billed under another project which might account for the lack of work order paperwork, documents and the missing file materials, including the photos and videos of the the sewer line from June 2010. It is also just another example of the rampant fraud that has been exposed in this 20 year case. That letter/email can be viewed and/or downloaded at: https://www.box.com/s/2d4f4ddd9fe5aff6a68c
On May 7, 2012, I sent most of you ALL above a letter and followed up with an email copy regarding the sewer excavation taking place next door at the vacant house at 7641 Sunkist Drive, Oakland. I attached photos so that everyone could see the extent of the work being done by two crews including their entering the sewer main from atop the street above my property. That letter/email can be viewed and/or downloaded at: https://www.box.com/s/a10e5c61853ef305f7bd
The crew returned on May 8, 2012 and I found as part of this excavation, the work crew dug a trench four feet wide, six feet long, and ten feet deep (4‘x 6’ x 10’) on my property without my knowledge or consent. The digging had removed my fence from alongside the property, removed a shack without hauling away their debris, uprooted trees and shrubbery in the area bordering my swimming pool! Just the shear digging and removal of the land at the base of the pool will compromise the integrity of the hillside, cause erosion, sever sliding and the same sinking of that area now compromised as the same areas complained about that are in need of repair now due to the sloppy work of Andes Construction! I told them to stop their work immediately and all the related parties would be liable and responsible for any and all damage done to my property. They claimed that they thought that the work was being done on the easement that is alongside my property. I informed them that it was not and the homeowner is aware of that, as they were clearly on my property. I gave them my card and they said they would have their manager call me, as they had a city inspection at 2:00 PM.
Shortly I received a call from someone identifying themselves as Dean of Sewer Connection stating that the work was being done on the sewer according to his understanding of the City easement. I informed him that it is impossible to do any work on the sewer without using my property, you cannot use my property without my consent or knowledge, and you certainly do not have the right to destroy my property under any circumstances! I informed him that he has to remove his crew and equipment from my property until such time as this matter is resolved. I have posted that conversation to be listened to and/or downloaded at: https://www.box.com/s/f0887158afe3a78ef7b0
I called Dean back to request his fax number to send him a cease and desist letter and to inform him of my denial of access to pass onto my property, or to trespass for any reason at all. He refused to give me his fax number citing the opinion of the City inspector that would be visiting the property as final in his mind.
At 2:00 PM I went to the excavation site and encountered the crew there with City Public Works inspectors James Lowrie, Jose Garcia, and an EBMUD inspector checking the work. I asked whom was in charge from the City and Lowrie identified himself and proceeded to say that it was his understanding that the area they were working in was the City’s easement and not my property. I asked him if he knew that for a fact and he merely said “that’s what I understand, and I know you think it’s your property, but it’s not!”. He said he didn’t see why they couldn’t proceed with the work and just backfill the hole and be done with it. I listed the destruction already done to my property and asked if the City was assuming the responsibility for the damage since he was giving them permission to proceed with the work as I had ask them to cease and desist from any work until it is determined how they were going to make the installation and I saw the plans for the work including the back fill of the excavation.
I made it absolutely clear to him of my denial of access to pass onto my property, to use or destroy my property including the trench on my property without my knowledge or consent, removing my fence from alongside the property, clearing the areas and not hauling away their debris, uprooted trees and shrubbery in the area bordering my swimming pool, where the digging and removal of the land at the base of the pool will compromise the integrity of the hillside, cause erosion, sever sliding and sinking. I offered to show him the consequences of poor workmanship and the fact that this main has had repairs and replacement done to it four times since I have lived there and the same areas complained about that are in need of repair now due to the sloppy work of Andes Construction. I made it absolutely clear to him of my denial of access to pass onto my property or it’s use in any way would require a court order, which I was sure he did not have. He said I was wrong and saw no reason why they could not proceed. I video recorded this interaction as he took responsibility for the damage done to my property with his determination that there was noting necessary beyond his understanding to allow for the installation to go forward, no due diligence required. I have posted that video at:
Later that day I received the following email from Kathy Kessler attesting to the City’s properly issuing a permit for the repair work being done at the residence. To Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim,
Please be advised that in response to your recent e-mail to the City Administrator’s office, there is a permit (number SL1200768) to do the sewer work that you inquired about. It was issued on 5/3/12.

Where’s the copy of that permit as we have requested?
We have had this matter further investigated and been advised by the City Permits Department that this repair work REQUIRED an excavation permit that could only be obtained by the owner of the excavated property, NOT the owner of the property being repaired! Now your City employees attesting to the property NOT being mine, but the City’s by virtue of a Public Easement is totally contrived in an effort to cause distraction from their fraudulent obtaining the permits and illegally performing the work!
Who got the permit and what does it say regarding the excavation of the property to access the sewer main? Was the property to be excavated mine or the City’s by virtue of the alleged “Public Easement”? The permit was issued to Reconveyance National Trust Corporation and the repair work listed to be performed by Plumbing Express Inc. of Pinole, California. Reconveyance National Trust Corporation is a “paper tiger” of Juan Carlos Manchenoand Plumbing Express Inc. was never at the property.
Juan Carlos Mancheno boasts 20 years and over 500 Properties worth of Real Estate Investment experience has a host of straw companies in various ownership groups with his family members. He has such exotic properties as “The Lands of Mancheno”; is listed as President at Approved Lending Commercial, Inc.; Mancheno Enterprises, Inc.; International Pacific Investment Group, Inc.; President at Pinnacle Homes & Estates, Inc.; Billion Enterprises; Lone Oak Fund LLC Distressed Asset Acquisition & Disposition Group; Reconveyance National Trust Corporation; First Mortgage Loan Trust; Paracorp Inc; Quality Lending Services, Inc.; Nancor, Inc. who’s President is Nancy G Mancheno; Ripper Enterprises Inc.; Jorge E Mancheno Insurance; Valero Realty; Azteca Servicio De Financias Y Taxes; Sariah May; International Pacific Investment Group, Inc.; Sahah May; Robert W Pelletreau; Richard M Jacobsmeyer; Alfred M Cabral; William P Moses; James Vandersloot; Julia Miller; Nancy G Mancheno; Jorge Mancheno; Elizabeth C Albonica; Catalina Cordoba, among others. What, no Laundry?
Here’s where it gets interestingly DANGEROUS!
On February 1, 2012 I sent a letter to City of Oakland’s Sandra Smith, Michael Warren- the real estate broker for Mancheno and Harold Deblander, the real estate broker for the former owner/seller George Piljay regarding the clean up crew at the house and yard without any electrical power or water. The crew asked if they could “borrow” both from me and I allowed them for about two weeks. Another crew followed them very shortly.
Then another crew comes onto the property and begin cutting the trees on my property and on the City owned Public Easement. This was done without any notice, requests, permission, or license. None of the workers were from America nor spoke English. I asked them to stop cutting the trees as they were not theirs to cut nor on their property. One woman, in very broken English, identified herself as the manager of the tree cutting crew working for the owner. I told her she could not cut these trees without a permit and that they were not on their property.
She then said that she was cutting the trees for the neighbor across the street. I informed her that he doesn’t own any of these trees and has been caught cutting these trees without a permit several times in the past three years that he has rented that house. She gets on the phone with someone, comes over onto my driveway and says that she is going to continue cutting the trees. I asked her to stop cutting the trees or they would be arrested for doing so. I further asked her to move all their vehicles which were blocking my driveway, garage and parking spaces. I then took pictures of her and the workers and went back into my home.
About a half hour later there’s a knock on my door, I answer it and found the Oakland Police. The officer asked if I called the police, I informed him I had not. He proceeds to tell me that I had a “run in” with the female worker next door. I asked him to explain what he meant by “run in” and he said an argument. I laughed at the description and said that I informed them that they were illegally cutting trees on my property and the City’s Public Easement that they do not own, did not ask permission to cut, did not have a permit to cut, and if the did not stop cutting, I would call the police and they were going to jail. I showed the officer the property boundaries with the City Public Easement, my property line and their property line. I pointed out the decrepit building that was leaning into my property, only being held up by my gate. I informed the officer that she had given me two different stories as to why she was cutting the trees and who she worked for and I wanted to know who they really were damaging my property. I gave the officer my I.D. and requested to know who these people were cutting the trees and who they really worked for.
The officer talks with them and returns to inform me that there was a misunderstanding and she was only “trimming” the trees. I asked for her I.D. information and he said she refused to provide him any identification and said that she was the new property owner.
A week later, another crew is working at the home when a man introduces himself as the carpenter who will be making the repairs to the home and he understands that he has to repair/replace the gate and fence. We went over the work involving the tear down of the hazardous decrepit building, fixing my gate and replacing my fence. We went over the property boundaries with the City Public Easement, my property line and their property line. It was understood and agreed what was to happen and how it would be done.He informed me that they were making the repairs to the home without permits or legal workers which was why no one spoke English.I told him about the encounter with the female whom claimed to be the owner and he apologized for her saying she is very rude, that’s the way she always is and is not the owner but the aunt of one of the owners. He told me whom the owners were in Pinole, California and that I should meet them the next week regarding the repairs to be made to my property.
The next week he comes over with the female that claimed to be the owner and we reviewed the repairs to be made and the property line issues. She asked if they could cut the trees and clear any area on my property. I asked her why she wanted to do that, and she could not give me a reason, but insisted on doing it and wanted me to sign a waiver to allow them to do the cutting and clearing. I told her to draft an agreement signed by the real owners and I would review it. I asked her why she lied when told the Oakland Police she was the owner and still yet refused to show them any identification. She couldn’t answer. I asked her why she called the Police in the first place given she was wrong, and she replied that she did not call the police, but the neighbor across the street whom she first said she was working for did. She never apologized for her actions and I never got any proposed waiver for the work to be done. One concern with the work that has been done is the building a “retaining wall” for the parking space at the street level that is totally improper and the landscaping being formed in such a way as to relieve the sever drainage problem the home has suffered for years by channeling the water toward my property.
That carpenter was allegedly shot and robbedwhile making repairs at the home several weeks later and he has since not returned.
There has been several other crews working the property since then and most recently built a fence partially containing the property but no where near the property line to replace my fence as agreed and promised. There has been no repair to my gate either.
I researched the owners and seller of the property and located contact information for Michael Warren, the listing agent and sent him a text message regarding the concerns and apparent lack of compliance by the new owner whom is now trying to sell the property without haven made the agreed repairs to my property. Mr. Warren called me back and stated that he was unaware of the concerns and would need to make a full disclosure of these concerns to every prospective buyer. Further, he would have to address the major repairs made to the home without permits. This issue also needs to be addressed by the Building Permits and Code Department of the City of Oakland.
Later on On February 1, 2012 I sent a letter to City of Oakland’s Sandra Smith, Michael Warren- the real estate broker for Mancheno and Harold Deblander, the real estate broker for the former owner/seller George Piljay regarding a phone call and text message I received from Mancheno wherein I was informed he was the new owner of the property in question above, whom identified himself as Juan Mancheno, that it was not disclosed during the close of sell to him and the buyers that: 1) George and Jackie Piljay’s renters had torn down my fence; 2) that George and Jackie Piljay had agreed to make the repair/replace to my gate and fence; 3) that the responsibility was assumed by the new buyers/owners upon purchase of the home; 4) that the new owners are supposed to make the repair/replace along my property line; 5) they are unaware of any agreement for this repair/replacement of my gate and fence as part of the closing agreement with your clients upon their purchase of the property. Is that correct? This brief conversation was followed by several threatening text messages.Given the fact that there were Marijuana growing dope dealers therebefore, one of the workers was recent shot and robbedat the property, the alleged owner lied to the Oakland Police about their ownership of the property, she refused to give the Police any identification, she complained and called someone when I photographed her and the workers illegally cutting the trees, and no one there ever speaks English, I take those threats very seriously.
I requested their attention to these continuing problems.
Mancheno sold the home to Michael D. Dobson in questionably “deeded” transaction to him and Kaitland with no money exchanged as if there was no sale and Dobson later got a mortgage from Wells Fargo.
On June 22, 2012 at 10:30 PM I called Oakland Police Department when Iheard 5-6 shots from 7641 Sunkist Dr. of what sounded like a 22 or 25 cal. gun at 10:15 PM. Oakland Police said other neighbors reported gun shots as well. OPD Ofc. M. Ziebarth, badge #8281 came to the scene and confirmed multiple reports of gun shot at 7641 Sunkist Drive. He went to the residence and tried to get an answer to his knocking on the doors and windows, he looked all thru the back and side yard, he shined his flashlight into the windows, yet he got no answer. The next day at 1:00PM I saw a young lady who said she lived there named Kaitland that said they, her and Dobson, heard shots at 10:15 PM and commotion but did not hear Police at the door or window nor did they answer the door.
Awfully strange and highly suspicious!
On January 16, 2013 the Federal Bureau of Investigation served a search warrant on businesses owned by Juan Mancheno confiscating documents that filled the parking lot of his Pinnacle Realtors’ office in El Sobrante an FBI spokeswoman confirmed. They are also investigating the 2008 murder for hire of his former business partner Kashmir Billon, 42, who was found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest outside his BMW on Bishop Drive San Ramon. A business associate Reginald Robinson, 31, of El Sobrante was arrested in connection with this suspicious murder for hire.
Murder, guns, robberies, violence, threats, fraud seem to follow certain people and properties!
How and why did City officials grant the permits and allow the excavation/repairs without the proper permits for the remodeling of the home, repair/replacement of the sewer line, building a fence that blocks off the access to the Public Easement, illegally hauling and disposing of contaminated hazardous waste on the property, dumping cement and covering it up in a retaining wall at curbside, dumping debris in the raven below my property, among others? It is clear from the interaction of the parties in the video taken during the sewer inspection that ALL the parties know each other and even state that they have done business together and wanted “the papers that you always give me” as stated to the EBMUD inspector whom granted their certificate the same day.
We contacted EBMUD Board member William Bill Patterson regarding this matter and upon his looking into the inspection was unable to determine whom the inspector was, but is still working on this issue. Bill lamented how the City has been plagued with bribe taking officials and employees marked by recent findings, common knowledge and resignations.
Why is the City protecting this Mancheno character? Why are the City Attorney, City Administrator, the Mayor and other City offices concealing ALL the documents and employees who are in charge of providing the documents to ANYONE that makes the request for same being threatened and told NOT to provide the documents? I went to the Publics Works office to serve a request on Vitaly B. Troyan, met with Donna Enright regarding the many previous unfilled requests and demanded an answer. She stated that she requested the documents and was told NOT to produce them. After being pressured, she stated that it was Michael Neary that posed that threat to her. Who got paid?
April 12, 2012 I sent a letter to Sandra M. Smith, Building Code Supervisor, Health and Safety Dept., City of Oakland regarding alleged City of Oakland Building Code violations at 7633 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, Ca. I spoke with her regarding Mr. Fielding asking for time to complete his own “investigation” and we requested all documents to be received by us and throughly examined. Mr. Fielding told me he thinks he knows what happen and how the complaint got to this stage, the parties involved and that he needs more time to complete his investigation.As you are aware
There has been a series of issues that have flown from the need to email and call Smith regarding the continual waste dumping that has occurred at the vacant lot of James and Bessie Zeager by their son Sebastian at 7627 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, CA 94605; and destruction of my fence and gate by the owners of 7641 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, CA 94605 that has resulted in my receiving several threats via text.
In response to my voicemail message I left for you regarding the actions of Bill Patchen, an inspector that came out to review the Zeager dumping, you had Mr. Fielding to contact me and we have spoken twice and I took him photos of the dumping that reveal an area that is over 14’ long, 4’ wide, and 6’ deep that extends from the street to the front porch of the house, filled in with smelly mud with bit of clay pipe and debris in it obviously from a sewer line replacement. Sebastian Zeager is in that business.
There are several other areas where there has been mounds of dumping as shown in the photos. But Mr. Patchen saw nothing and was willing to put his professional reputation on it suggesting that he could not testify before a judge to get an order for the clean up but wanted me to pay for a soils engineer and contamination expert to take the tests and provide him with the results so that the City could move forward.
I reminded him that all he needed was probable cause to request the test and that element was clearly there, and the contamination testing was also his job with the City, not mine. He said he did not see anything, upon which I reminded him “willful neglect is worst than fraud under the law”, at which point he yells at me “are you threatening me?, what is your name, where do you live, give me your address, I’ll show you!” I received a Blight Notice dated March 2, 2012 from an alleged complaint #1200470 filed on February 8, 2012 from an alleged phone call received at your SF Station.
Those findings are subject to the mentioned discovery process as well as the continual waste dumping and demolition that has occurred at the vacant lot of James and Bessie Zeager by their son Sebastian at 7627 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, CA 94605; the destruction of my fence and gate by the owners of 7641 Sunkist Drive, Oakland, CA 94605, that has resulted in my receiving several threats via text; and this retaliatory action of Bill Patchen, your inspector. I requested the legal authority and basis for the alleged appeal process, and the actual legal steps in this appeals process, the legal responsibilities of the City and it’s engineers in this process, the selection process of the ruling body, who pays the ruling body, and what legal liability do they and the City have with any legal validity. This included all the documents, facts, evidence, and witness testimony has been received from discovery into and as evidence. This means that after we have had full discovery, including your producing all the requested documents and witnesses for examination, we will proceed. The City FAILED AND REFUSED to respond and comply!
On September 19, 2012, I sent a letter and spoke with Camille J. Rodgers, Vegetation Management Supervisor, Oakland Fire Department, regarding the proposed cleaning and/or clearing of the Public Easement along 7633 Sunkist Drive. I informed her there has been many problems over the years with the alleged easement, it’s demarcations and maintenance. For those reasons, I want to reiterate to her my demands posed in a June 19, 2012 letter to Vitaly B. Troyan of the Oakland Public Works Dept., Mayor Jean Quan, Barbara J. Parker , Oakland City Attorney and Deanna J. Santana, Oakland City Administrator with cc: to Barbara Lee, Desley Brooks, Sandre Swanson, and Keith Carson.
The demands to Troyan were as follows: 1) the legal determination of the boundaries of the easement that runs alongside my property. You should be aware that this matter is clear and previous decided and required a court order in 1993-4 to gain access to my property for the faulty repairs that were made then for which you are still liable for today. You might want to further consult Mike Neary in your office, if he hasn’t been involved in this latest array of corruption and conspiracy, as he was a witness in the matter than. He failed to testify when it was obvious he had made some very libelous statements he refused to and could not substantiate; 2) confirmation of your granting consent to destroy my property to the “owners” of 7641 Sunkist Drive or their agents and contractors including Sewer Connection and your inherent assumption of the responsibility for that destruction done to my property. The current “owner” Mike Dobson, whom has been at the property weeks before the destruction, claims he had nothing to do with it as it was arranged by previous “owner” Juan Mancheno before he bought the property. He also claims not to have any knowledge of the removal my fence from alongside the property even though I saw him hauling the remains up to the garbage cans for collection in late May with a black cast on his left hand; 3) a copy of the permit that the City granted for the installation of the sewer line that was verified in an email from Donna F. Enright with a cc: to Arlette Flores-Medina, City Attorney Open Government Coordinator; 4) a full and complete copy of ALL CITY files related to my property from 1978, including repairs, legal action, law enforcement, permits, business, etc. That includes ALL the videos of the sewer lines that the City have denied existed but we have presented proof that they do; 5) to know why there has never been a response to these many requests dating back to 1991, and to provide answers to those requests; 6) to know what is the condition of the file documents requested; and 7) to know the physical location of the files. Additionally, I want copies of: 1) Your RFP for the proposed cleaning and/or clearing of the public easement; 2) the manner in which the RFP was publicly published and circulated for respondents; 3) list of respondents to that RFP; 4) the proposed plans submitted in response to the RFP; 5) the winning RFP proposal; 6) the proposed timeline for the work identified in the winning RFP.
I am in receipt of a letter dated April 10, 2012 from a Donna Enright, Administrative Assistant 1 in Public Works Department, with copies to Arlette Flores-Medina, the Open Government Coordinator from City Attorneys Office, with another non response to my continuing requests for ALL documents and materials related to the repair work of the sewer main along my property that was most recently allegedly performed by Andes Construction from June to August 2010. From the physical observations of the areas repaired, the same concern seems to be apparent again and the main is still in need of repair due to the negligent and improper repair from 1992 to present as a result of the main collapse in 1991. (Enright link to letter attached hereto and can be viewed and/or downloaded at: https://www.box.com/s/93e388d1d54da35a6658)
The response from Public Works Department and City Attorneys Office office provided nothing related to my property but was enlightening as I have requested ALL DOCUMENTS AND MATERIALS RELATED TO THE REPAIR yet nothing you offered was responsive. The document from Gunawan Santoso, P.E., of the City of Oakland Community and Economic Development Agency dated March 26, 2012, to Andes Construction entitled “PROPOSAL REQUEST No. 2”; with headings:
PROJECT: The Rehabilitation of Sanitary Sewer in Area Bounded by Lakeshore Dr., Alice St., 20th St., and 11th St.
PROJECT NO: C59310
This City of Oakland document requests quoted estimates for the quantities of the repairs for changes in “a contracted sum or proposed modifications to the contract” and states that very sternly “THIS IS NOT A CHANGE ORDER NOR A DIRECTION TO PROCEED WITH THE WORK HEREIN.”
It further indicates that: “Note: Construction area is located in easement between Sunkist Dr and Hillmont Dr, enter from 10’ path at the side 7633 Sunkist Dr.
Per Maintenance CCTV LH 84-112-14 does not exist. Please verify.”
The document provided from Cynthia Orozco of Andes Construction dated May 18, 2012 entitled “Alice C59310-Proposal No. 2” for “Re: The Rehabilitation of Sanitary Sewer in Area Bounded by Lakeshore Dr., Alice St., 20th St., and 11th St. C59310” is addressed to Julius (perhaps Kale Jr.) Below that entitlement is another line that reads “Sub: Proposal #2- Emergency Job @ Sunkist Dr.” This Rehabilitation proposal includes “Clean & Televise Sewer Main” as a line item of the repair. It further states that Andes will “perform the aforementioned work as described in Proposal Request # 2 and as per plans provided by the City”. There is also a hand written attachment on the face of this document stating “NOTE: PLEASE USE BID ITEMS OF PROJECT C59310”. The acceptance of this Proposal for $30,297 is endorsed by Allen Law of City of Oakland Public Works on May 19, 2012.
I have a few questions that must be answered: 1) When was this “Request for Proposal #2 for the Emergency work at Sunkist Drive” prepared?
2) How was this “Request for Proposal #2 for the Emergency work at Sunkist Drive” prepared?
3) Who prepared the Request for Proposal?
4) How were bids solicited for the Request for Proposal?
5) How were bids submitted for this “Request for Proposal #2 for the Emergency work at Sunkist Drive”?
6) How many bid responses were there to the Request for Proposal?
7) What criteria was used to select the awarded bid to the Request for Proposal?
8) How was the bid awarded for the Request for Proposal?
9) When was the bid awarded for the Request for Proposal?
10) What is CCTV LH 84-112-14 ? Does CCTV LH 84-112-14 exist?
11) Where is CCTV LH 84-112-14?
12) Where are the videos of the sewer main inspection both pre and post repair?
13) Where are the photos of the repair including the one of the cleaning snake stuck in the displaced rubber donut coupling that triggered this problem in January 2010?
Both the videos and photos exist and that existence is verified in a conversation between myself and City of Oakland Engineer Julius Kale Jr. on January 26, 2012. You can listen to and/or download that conversation at: http://www.box.com/s/61971f508caaba0e67bb It seems that perhaps the reason why you feel you are able to withhold the requested documents and materials with impunity is because this repair is just another example of the ongoing fraud in this case dating back to 1991. If the alleged repairs to my property were performed and billed as part of repairs to another property, it would conceal the fraud not only in the repair to my property but also the awarding of the bid for the repair to both properties without the existence of any record of repairs to my property, as it is neatly tucked into the ALICE C59310 repair!
On February 25, 2010 I appeared at the City Attorney, City Administrator, the Mayor and other City offices and filed a request for the documents from this event and videos of the sewer dating back to 2004. I have not received any response from your crack staff headed by Mark Morodomi, and Michele Abbey whom have pledged in former City Attorney John Russo and your office’s infamous Public Service videos for Real Oakland Administrative Reform (ROAR) to provide those documents to the public as a right of Oakland citizens. In a Public Service Announcement entitled “Oakland Open Government” Russo point out Mark Morodomi and Michelle Abney as “The Advocate for the Public”. Morodomi proclaims “Citizens have a right to see documents” and the City motto is “Jus Por Popolo” meaning “Law in the Service of the Public” to give you(the citizens of Oakland) the tools and the resources to compete fully in our local democracy.
On Russo’s website he referred to himself as “The Leader for government transparency and civic reform!” – Pragmatic Progressive Leadership!, and describes himself as “passionate that all Oakland citizens have a right to a safe community, good job opportunities, a thriving economy, and a responsible and transparent government.” He paraded this rhetoric of Government Transparency, Accountability and Civic Reform in cleaning up Government and Law Enforcement aimed at restoring public confidence in government, and maintaining the Highest Ethical Standards designed to “make city government more accountable, more transparent and more effective” as his personal “Shield of Honor”. We shall now find out if you are any different for Russo or like Russo and really stand for the things you selectively choose to enforce on others and more like Russo, if you just want to in RUSSO’s OWN WORDS act as “most politicians, and simply keeping the game going as long as they can!”
After leaving the City Attorney’s office I went to the office of the City Auditor to inquire about the process to file an ethics and “Whistle-blower” complaint against Russo and your staff. While meeting with the receptionist, Russo entered the office in a very intimate manner with the City Auditor, Courtney Ruby. I introduced myself and gave them both cards and stated that I would be in touch them both. I am fulfilled that mention with a letter and “Whistle-blower” complaint.
I have filed and am still awaiting the City of Oakland, City Attorney, and John Russo’s answer to the notice of the Corruption Complaint filed and served on your office on May 5, 2010 and the formal 200 page Corruption, Extrinsic Fraud, Criminal Misconduct, Ethics and “Whistle-Blower” Complaint complete with audio CD filed and served on your office on June 7, 2010 stemming from criminal actions committed by the City Attorney’s Office, Mr. Russo and others resulting from the sewer main collapse alongside my home in 1991. A copy of that complaint can be viewed and/or downloaded at: http://www.box.net/shared/4424e7822p. A documents referred to herein below are in reference to documents attached to the complaint.
My ethics and “Whistle-blower” complaint that I filed against Russo and staff including Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abbey; former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jane Williams and former employee Pat Smith; was for their fraudulently fabricating 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, fostering Rescue 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; Ron 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; to be admitted as evidence, subjected to 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 and fostered it’s use to prejudice the jury. During the Rescue 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, and providing the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year, Russo and your office failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file, and engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of my legal case; Russo and your office engaged in actions to coverup your unlawful acts; as you committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity.
On October 20, 2010 I filed a letter response entitled “Response to Denial of Your Claim #C28043 Served and Filed August 31, 2010” to a Mr. Doug Kapovich, Claims Administrator for Acclamation Insurance Management Services in which I stated “ I am in receipt of your letters addressed to “Abdul-Salil Al-Hakim” dated September 3, and 24, 2010 both denying a claim numbered C28043 that HE/SHE/THEY filed on August 31, 2010. Since I am not “Abdul-Salil Al-Hakim” and your information contained in both denial letters are not factually related to my claim, nor grounds for denial of my claim, it is deduced that my claim filed on the date referenced above is still active and pending unless and until such proper notice of denial is received. His/your denial letters gave four (4) repeated erroneous grounds for denial without factual evidence to support those assertions, and in fact refute the common facts established and acknowledged in his/your letters.
Given that he, the City Attorney, City Administrator, the Mayor and the City offices had ALL
this information at the time of your “assumed denial letter”, it is reasonably deduced that your denial could not possibly have been related to my claim, but was in fact intended for the differently named party in the letters I received. I further requested that if I was in error, please feel free to factually correct me with a properly named, factually evidenced denial letter and not merely serve another misstep in your, the City of Oakland, City Attorney’s Office, John Russo and others bad faith, fraud, civil conspiracy, and violation of the business and professional codes. Russo and your office has never responded to the letter and the uncured defect is yours!
I have contacted Russo, the City Attorney, City Administrator, the Mayor and the City offices many, many times by registered mail, phone and fax, regarding Russo and your staffs independent knowledge of the defendants absconding with the files from the City’s possession, and if such action was with the permission of the City Attorney. Russo and your office have failed and refused to effectively respond and has always denied knowing who made the request to review the files or what happened to them, while me and my attorneys at that time, Michael Michel and Jeff Fackler, had attempted several times to obtain copies of the City litigation file from October 1999 to June of 2000 and was told by the City Attorney’s Office that the file was “missing” and was last requested by defendant Ron Cook. Finally, after six months, in June 2000, Anita Hong called to notify Mr. Michel that the file had been returned and was available for viewing. At that time Mr. Fackler and Michel was told that the file had been returned by CSAA’s attorney. I called Ms. Hong and was told the file was back and available for viewing, and when asked who returned the file, she responded “it was returned by Steve Barber of Ropers Majeski”.
Although Russo and the City have adamantly denied the City Attorney’s office had anything to do with the case and was not involved as recently as your assistant Alex Katz’s threatening emails and voice mail messages left for KPFA reporter Gabrielle Wilson, then interim Program Director Sasha Lilly, and Music Director Luis Medina, that resulted in Ms. Wilson’s September 5, 2009 show being censored and canceled. Mr. Cook and Mr. Barber both recently testified in the CSAA trial that they were given the case file by your office and they did not “remove” them without notice. I have previously served multiple deposition and trial subpoenas on ALL the parties from the City Attorney’s office named above and they have ALL failed and refused to provide the information sought by me, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpoena for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpoena for trial testimony every time.
The censoring of Ms. Wilson’s scheduled show was another instance of Russo and your office continual engaging in actions to destroy the litigation of my legal case; continuing to engage in actions to coverup your unlawful acts; and that Russo and your office committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity of the defendants in both the al-Hakim matters mentioned herein.
As a direct and proximate result of Russo and the City’s actions, you have caused me and my family to be forced from our $1 million plus home and office, foreclosed from two over $20 million law suits, and multi million business for 14 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. I should remind you that Russo and your office again did this with the unwitting aid of the same army of City Officials that Russo eagerly employ to rid the City of criminals like himself!
We now have you, Mr. Russo, and the municipality of the City of Oakland with the City Attorney’s Office being guilty of fraud with malice without notifying the court of these specious, treacherous acts and my complaint addresses the concern that Russo and your office criminal violations of the Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, the Rules of Professional Conduct; and Cal.Cannons and strikes at the heart of my fundamental civil and human rights and right to due process under the law guaranteed by the United States Constitution Amendments and the California Constitution and qualify as a Hate Crime under the Unruh and Ralph Civil Rights and the Bane Acts, while they are clear acts of religious bigotry and intolerance where such 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 my 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 you, Russo, your staff and your office demand you ALL be charged and prosecuted.
Mr. Russo, has stated “that City employees should be held to the highest ethical standards; that there is a formidable crisis of lack of public confidence in Oakland City Government”; in his ROAR video he and City Auditor Courtney Ruby state they truly believe “that City employees should be held to the highest ethical standards; that there is a formidable crisis of lack of public confidence in Oakland City Government”, that people are fatally mad about the unethical behavior, and abuse of power rampant in the City Government; and that Oakland truly deserves a new day”.
If you like Russo and your office are honestly “mad about it; that it is truly time for Oakland, in quoting Mr. Russo, “To Get On With It!” to clean up corruption”; that you, Russo, your office and Ruby “truly want to enact, and enforce your self authored Whistleblower program”; and you sincerely “want the public to believe that the City Government is operating on the level”, then you and the City should start with the complaint to investigate your office and provide answers as to why you, Russo, Mark Morodomi, Randy Hall, Janie Wong, Anita Hong, Sophia Li, Demetruis Shelton, Elizabeth Allen, Erica Harrold and Michele Abbey, and former Oakland and current San Leandro City Attorney Jane Williams and former employee Pat Smith fraudulently fabricated evidence in 1999 and planted 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, fostering Rescue 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; Ron 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; to be admitted as evidence, subjected to 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 and fostered it’s use to prejudice the jury.
The City of Oakland will NEVER escape the fact that during the Rescue 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, and providing the case file to defendants Stephan Barber and Ron Cook for nearly a year, you failed to notify the court of this unpardonable illegal breach in the chain of custody of the file, and engaged in actions to destroy the litigation of my legal case; you engaged in actions to coverup your unlawful acts; as you committed, aided and abetted this criminal activity; you all failed and refused to provide the information sought by me, and further failed and refused to appear under court ordered subpoena for deposition testimony twice and under court ordered subpoena for trial testimony and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Perhaps even worst, this evidence was the ONLY EVIDENCED PRODUCED AT TRIAL BY THE DEFENDANTS in the recent al-Hakim v. CSAA trial and presented while I was away attending a funeral!
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(See video of Notes at
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.
Acting as Deputy Defense-Counsel Judge 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.(See Trial ending order dated August 9, 2008)
Oakland City Attorney Was Aware At All Times Whom Had The Files And Why and Concealed 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.
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! (See video of Tigar’s ruling at
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.
Oakland City Attorneys Jayne Williams and John Russo Fabricated and Planted Evidence!
Now my Dear Mrs. Parker, as City Attorney you have the honor, privilege and responsibility to answer: 1) Who authored the August 1999 City note and how did they come to know the facts that were contained in it?
2) When was the note constructed?
3) What documents were provided to the requesting counsel?
4) Who was the attorney that requested the file and how was it provided to them?
5) What other documents were withheld and why?
6) Who is the Attorney and who was the Client referred to in the Attorney-Client asserted in the note?
7) What documents comprised the Attorney-Client privilege?
8) What documents comprised the work product?
9) What are the notes for, who’s file and what happened to them?
10) Did they get placed in the file, if so, by whom, when, where, why, how?
11) What was the chain of command in the handling of the notes?
12) Who approved and who knew about this illegal covert action?
13) The August 1999 City note clearly demonstrates that someone had made contact with Pat Smith before that date in order for her to engage in the illegal activities with the City Attorneys. Who contacted Smith, when, how and why?
14) She admitted during her testimony at trial in the Rescue case that she was being paid for her efforts by the defendants. How much was she paid and what was the basis for her employment?
15) When did Pat Smith review the City file after her employment ended in 1994 and October 1999?
Since there is proof from invoices that defendant Ron Cook had hired John Ratto of D. L. Glaze, later called ASU, as an alleged adjustor in this case and we have found out that they had contacted the Oakland Police Department, the City Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Insurance in an investigation of al-Hakim under the guise of adjusting/settling the claim in early 1999. It is entirely reasonable to expect that defendants CSAA, Cook and defense counsels themselves may have initiated the contact directly with both Smith and the Oakland City Attorneys office prior to August 1999 or at the very least it was another of their employees or contractors Douglas Kroll, Eller Torres, Lynn Koehler, Michael DeCesare, Gary Halpin. The blatant illegal activities of defense counsels Stephan Barber and Shawn O’Halloran are well established in this and the underlying case.
Jayne William’s Specious, Treacherous Acts
After see all the aforementioned evidence, not so shockingly 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) Clearly an effort on the part of the defendants, their defense counsels, and the courts to protect their own fallen, now exposed crooks and coverup their corruption.
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.
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!
As you all are aware, this matter has been and will continue to be submitted to the United States Attorney General, Department of Justice, among others, for further investigation and prosecution.
As mentioned in the before, we have noticed a continuing sinking of the land in the same area where the repair was made to the lateral and as this has been a sign in the past that it is still in need of repair due to the negligent and improper City of Oakland repair from 1992-4 and several times since then, as a result of the main collapse in 1991.
I want to know why there has never been a response to these many requests; what is the condition of the file documents requested; and the physical location of the files.
We intend to resolve the City of Oakland’s continuing crimes that have caused me and my family to be forced from our over $1 million plus home and office; foreclosed from an over $20 million law suit; and multi-million dollar business for 15 years thru the City Attorneys violation of the business and professional codes, planting fabricated evidence, corruption, extrinsic fraud, subornation of perjurious testimony, committing these acts under the color of law with the aid of City Officials, and they should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We will continue to completely and thoroughly expose the Judicial, Law Enforcement, and Governmental coverup that has plagued this case since 1991.
We have formally filed a Criminal Complaint for Corruption, Extrinsic Fraud and Ethics Violations against these and other parties and will move Mayor Jean Quan and City Administrator Deanne Santana for action that was pending under their predecessors against those former Oakland City Attorney’s and members of their staff. A copy of that Criminal Complaint can be viewed and/or downloaded at: al-Hakim’s ROAR Complaint Against Russo.pdf http://www.box.net/shared/4424e7822p
When former City Administrator Deborah Edgerly was being attacked by the City brass for allegations that remain unfounded to this day, they had these comments: Councilmember Kernighan said, “If the allegations about interfering in a criminal investigation are true, then (Edgerly) should not continue to be the city administrator. But the council doesn’t know if that is true or not, because nobody is sharing that information with us.” Despite years of transgressions by Edgerly (public, semi-public, and known in City Hall gossip), the councilmember still takes a passive, evasive stand.
At least Kernighan did not voice continued confidence in Edgerly like councilmember Reid, who said, “I do have faith in her being the city administrator until she retires.” (Oakland Tribune, June 25, 2008)
Only city auditor Courtney Ruby, first elected in 2006, said something with backbone in it: “As Oakland’s elected City Auditor, I am responsible for ensuring the City’s assets are safeguarded and I have serious concerns that the administrator who is under investigation continues to have access to city assets.”
City Attorney John Russo said, “Given the circumstances, and given the nature of the allegations confronting Mrs. Edgerly, placing her on administrative leave is the simplest and most legally prudent course for the city to follow.”
City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente said he welcomes Dellums’ announcement but he thinks “it should have happened last week” after the allegations against her first surfaced.”
De La Fuente said, “That would have been in the best interests of both the city and Deborah Edgerly.”
Now there are allegations of corruption against Council members Reid and Brooks, though not the first, and for many years in the case of Reid, still there was not a peep by anyone when confronted with over 20 years of irrefutable evidence of criminal corruption against City Attorneys Jayne Williams, John Russo, Barbara Parker, the City Attorneys Office, Retired Judges David Lee, Michael Ballachey, Judith Ford and Richard Hodge; current Judge Robert Freedman, Frank Roesch, Jon Tigar, Henry Needham and James Richman among others; District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and her office; Oakland City Administrator; Mayor of Oakland; several local Politicians and continued cover up by ALL parties that have been made aware of these crimes and done NOTHING to resolve them have committed an even GREATER crime!
Thank you and I welcome and look forward to your response with the furthering of the litigation and resolution of this ongoing case.

Sports and Social Media InfographicIt was Inevitable
Since we are at the cutting edge of everything related to sports recruiting we’ve already covered how Facebook is changing college recruiting. Please review this for some tips and rules high school and college athletes should consider. Now we feel it’s time for an update.All Access for Coaches
This Sports and Social Media infographic really breaks it down for you. For instance, how can a college coach resist incorporating social media into his recruiting strategy when 69% of sports fans–potential recruits–will check their Facebook or Twitter during meals? And you know where else they’ll check? 58% will check while they’re in the bathroom, 74% at a party, and 9% will even look at social media in church.
If you’ve spent more than 5 minutes with a teenager you know that Facebook is a force in their lives. But did you know that 81% of sports fans go to the internet for their breaking news? Or that people are 10 times as likely to check Twitter or Facebook for news as they are sports radio?Social Media is Changing Recruiting
There is little doubt that social media is changing recruiting. Coaches learned this–some of them late and against their will–and never looked back. The issue for teenagers being recruited to play sports in college is that lasting negative impact on their lives.Learn From the Yuri Wright Case
One well-publicized case is that of Yuri Wright, one of the nation’s top cornerbacks coming out of New Jersey’s Don Bosco Prep. Yuri made some ill-advised comments on Twitter and it ended up costing him his scholarship to Michigan. The University of Colorado is taking a chance on Wright and, to his credit, he says he’s learned a valuable lesson.Use Social Media as an Asset
As the IG illustrates people, including high school athletes, are increasingly getting their news and interacting through social media. The real question for athletes is will you use this as an asset or will it become something that will cost you your scholarship? Yuri Wright got a second chance because he was a nationally ranked player. You may not be so lucky so be careful.

NO BOOKS, NO BALL Cares
NO BOOKS, NO BALL Cares is a non-profit community outreach program dedicated to serving our community. It is founded on the principals of teamwork, not only on the basketball court, but also in our community. Athletes learn more is achieved, the task made easier, when individuals come together to form a collective unit. The experience has a greater influence on all members, both receiving and giving.
In these difficult times, it is necessary for us to extend a hand, and use the talents and gifts that we have, to improve the life of others in our community. NO BOOKS, NO BALL Cares promotes the giving of time, money and tangible goods. Volunteering at organizations that need the help of physical hands is encouraged.
The hope of NO BOOKS, NO BALL Cares is to not only help others, but for our players to understand these core principles of respect, teamwork, and community involvement. Adopting these values can improve the lives of our student-athletes on the basketball court. However, perhaps even more importantly, they can be transferred into the classroom, and in everyday scenarios that call for strong, confident behavior. “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
-The Reverend Martin Luther King JRThis statement is essentially the mission of NO BOOKS, NO BALL Cares. “When our players help those in our community, they feel the reward that comes with community service. This initiative encourages positive behavior. It will have a profound impact on those who interact with our student-athletes.”
-Hodari McGavock, Founder of NO BOOKS, NO BALLNO BOOKS, NO BALL Supplemental & Emergency Food Distribution

We provide a 3-7 day box of food (dry goods, can food, bread, etc.) to low income and homeless individuals and families (herein referred to as clients) on a bi-weekly basis as well as emergency boxes of food on an as needed basis. As time progresses we will distribute food on a weekly basis as well as have other food pantries in Oakland, California to do so.
In addition to the initial monthly supplemental food box, Boxes of HOPE will have two special Holiday distributions:Thanksgiving Food Boxes – Each year, Boxes of HOPE, will distribute a box of food containing everything needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal, including a turkey, for a family of four to those registered and receiving monthly supplemental food boxes. Thanksgiving boxes will be distributed the week before Thanksgiving.Christmas Food Boxes – Each year, Boxes of HOPE, will distribute a box of food containing everything needed to prepare a Christmas Day meal, including a ham, for a family of four to those registered and receiving monthly supplemental food boxes. Christmas boxes will be distributed the week before Christmas.
Clients who come to Boxes of HOPE do not have to meet income guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and live within our service boundaries. Anyone receiving any type of state or governmental assistance (such as SNAP, WIC, Social Security Income (SSI), or SSI disability) and do not have to present a legal photo ID (state ID or driver’s license), proof of residency (state ID, driver’s license or utility bill), and proof of income or state assistance (such as SNAP, WIC, Social Security Income (SSI), or SSI disability). No one is turned away, will receive a food box as long as supplies are available, and a referral to a food pantry in their area. Clients are provided all the services we offer regardless of race, sex, color, creed, sexual preference or any other non-qualifying designation.
The funding for this program will come from donations from local food stores as well as free-will public donations of food and cash. Our Program Director and volunteers will oversee the operation of this program. This program is offered with the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation.Gifts of HOPE – Christmas Gifts for Families in Need – We expect to begin our Christmas gift distribution for families in need called Gifts of HOPE, Christmas of 2013. Each year the organization will adopt one or more families in need to provide Christmas gifts to the children and parent(s) who would not otherwise be able to provide Christmas gifts to their family. Volunteers will purchase, wrap and deliver gifts to parent(s) for their children – not only delivering the message of hope to a parent that fears not being able to provide for their children, but also the message of love from parent to child, and the true meaning of Christmas. Each member of the family will receive clothes, shoes, toys, and food for the family, including adults and children living in the household.
Clients of this program will be chosen from those families currently receiving some type of assistance from Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation or by referral from other organizations. To qualify, the household income of the clients of the program must fall in the income guidelines set by the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines published in the Federal Registry.

The organization will supplement with purchased gifts as needed. Our Program Director and volunteers will oversee the operation of this program.

After witnessing my mother and father give freely to others since I was a child from the 1950’s until their death, charity struck a cord with me. I often thought, “how and in what way I could contribute anything close to the enormous good they had done so often for so many?”. My parents purchased land and built a church for their personal pastor and to accompany that, they also built him and his family a home as well. As I grew and matured, became more knowledgeable, sophisticated, and worldly, and as my faith and religious acumen blossomed, I realized the prodigious importance of building a house of worship and the infinite blessings that flow from such an achievement. I had to find a way to fulfill that potential within me as my parents had set the bar very, very high!
I knew that I didn’t have to re-invent the wheel as there was an incredible model for success that I could really make a difference and give back to my community by continuing the programs that my parents had forged when I was a child! So the A MWF began with the support of friends, neighbors, acquaintances, religious leaders, community members, and businesses dedicated to helping others. The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (A&MWF) is a non-denominational, multi-cultural,100% volunteer financed and operated relief organization that provides FREE food, medicine, clothing, educational and employment opportunities, mental and physical health referrals, legal aid, shelter and other necessities to individuals, children, families, and organizations who lack these essentials for any reason. We provide private school and college admissions educational opportunities; assists with referrals for job training and placement; rental assistance; social services assistance; homelessness assistance; mental and physical health assistance; medical assistance and legal aid assistance referrals FREE for ANYONE whom has the need at the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation website.
Providing The Necessities For Success In Life
A&MWF, a public services organization based on GIVING AND SHARING, has created a 100% volunteer self-operated, self-supported, self financed model defined by developing the marketplace of a network that features high-performing results in the invaluable areas of: youth development; elementary, secondary and college education; poverty alleviation; mental and physical health medical services; social services, as well as other economic-empowerment programs for individuals, families; and small businesses. A&MWF is pioneering a new trend, as government and community funds grapple with the recession and the challenges of raising funds, WE have forged an awareness and sustained an effort to connect those in dire need with service providers, donors, volunteers and nonprofit groups with these causes. We have taken community foundations and moved into social networking, reaching beyond static “bricks and mortar” to interactive Web sites to serve as a “dynamic virtual clearinghouses or town square” that holds conversations between those in NEED and their local charities, citizens, donors, and volunteers. Every month thousands of San Francisco/ Oakland Bay Area residents rely on the AMWF Community Food Program for nutritious food and social service resources. As a local entity providing free food to those in need, we are seeing a significant increase in the percentage of children we serves, as county food banks see a spike in pleas for help. “51 percent of individuals served … are infants, children and teenagers. In the past, the percentage of people under 18 was 40 percent.” The change is attributed to an increase in the number of families seeking emergency food aid. “Traditionally we’ve seen more demand for services from the western end of the city, but we are seeing an increase in need in the central part, and we even have people from the Hills and the affluent parts of town”.
The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Community Food Programs (AMWF), a multi-ethnic, multi-issue community-based organization, continues to carry out its mission of a society in which all persons flourish as it provides and refers comprehensive services — in collaboration with other hunger, health care, housing, violence, abuse, counseling, senior, youth, women, children, civil rights, employment, and education response agencies — to thousands of men, women and children living in San Francisco/ Oakland Bay Area in California to help transform the lives of people in need. AMWF extends these various services and programs to the economically, mentally, and physically challenged; the poor and homeless; the undereducated and undeserved; people living with symptomatic HIV and AIDS; substance abuse; seniors 55 years and older; prenatal women; at risk youth; and homebound people living with serious illness. Our members, and the people we serve are of different race, faith, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation and income levels. AMWF by providing direct services, including providing nutritious food; edvocating for and participating in many relevant social service programs that promote the self-sufficiency of people in need; educating the general public about these issues, their causes and this partial solution while inspiring a consummate social conscience and honoring the dignity of every person. As part of that principal mission, AMWF works for basic economic survival security for all and the elimination of poverty by providing these services thus effecting societal and governmental policies that regulate the less fortunate to the bottom of the economic, social, health, and opportunity pyramid, with full understanding that any policy which affects the poorest of us affects all of us. By catering to everyone we have built many allies with statewide and national anti-hunger organizations to support legislation addressing low-income people’s food needs. In doing so, we help build power in our communities and win institutional changes on the issues that affect our lives as we provide fresh, hot, nutritious meals and bags of groceries with healthy meat, fish, breads, perishable and nonperishable food, such as canned vegetables and fruits, tuna fish, peanut butter, rice, dry beans and pasta, at a location near their home that are served to anyone without restriction. A&MWF has made it easy and effortless for service providers, donors, volunteers and nonprofit groups to connect with those in NEED, as we have received more individuals needs profiles submitted on this site. The profiles include their contact information, information about their needs, desired solutions, pleas for their need satisfaction, and a listing of opportunities to achieve their solution. We also have profiles submitted of individuals as prospective donors or volunteers, include information about the causes that interest them. We look forward to our being able to do business together helping those most in need while providing you with incredible branding opportunities with maximum media exposure for the greatest community relations benefit and increased business development.
