Don Bailey Hearing Transcripts

Don Bailey Disciplinary Hearing Transcripts We post these transcripts with some reticence because there are certain contextual premises that need to be understood in terms of what a proper due process hearing is intended to encompass in our system of justice.  We also hope to bring them to you in more manageable form.  The premise that will be developed, from the standpoint of this site, is that, although shrinking from nothing factually, these transcripts can be relied upon for nothing as a basis upon which to deprive Mr. Bailey of his liberty and property rights in his chosen occupation.  These are "due process" issues, and have been addressed in the Bailey Docket, and which should have been addressed and resolved prior to ever convening a proper hearing.  There was no reason not to, and these transcripts will be further broken down and studied in that regard, an effort which we had hoped to do by now. These hearing transcripts reflect the mockery that can be made when our courts are used as instruments of political oppression instead of affording open access to justice.  We apologize again for the strong opinion, … Continue Reading ››

Bailey challenges Supreme Court over due process violations in response to recommended suspension/PCRLN history of coverage of these matters

Bailey Challenges Supreme Court over Due Process Violations in Response to Recommended Suspension

The initial coverage on this site centered on the disciplinary proceedings filed against civil rights lawyer Don Bailey in early 2011.  From the start, we have contended that the Bailey disciplinary proceedings would show the need for court reform through the difficulties that American citizens were having in bringing their claims for the violations of their individual constitutional rights in the courts.  This is what has been shown, and the need for reform remains clear.

On May 1, 2013, the Supreme Court Disciplinary Board, as we predicted, recommended that Don Bailey be suspended from the practice of law for 5 years for doing nothing other than criticizing judges for not being fair, and, on June 7, 2013, Don Bailey filed a response demonstrating clearly both 1) that he was right in so-criticizing, and 2) that, as we have covered at length here, the proceedings against him, because they had a bogus origin and were designed to serve an illicit agenda, were bereft of the most basic due process protections.

Bailey challenges Supreme Court with serious due process deprivations in response to recommended suspension of law license/PCRLN history of coverage

The initial coverage on this site centered on the disciplinary proceedings filed against civil rights lawyer Don Bailey in early 2011.  From the start, we have contended that the Bailey disciplinary proceedings would show the need for court reform through the difficulties that American citizens were having in bringing their claims for the violations of their individual constitutional rights in the courts.  This is what has been shown, and the need for reform remains clear.

Bailey responds (loudly and clearly) to state and federal disciplinary actions – proves state and federal complicity – and lack of basis to any charge of misconduct

Linked below are the actual documents filed by Don Bailey (with slight revisions to the ODC response for readability) in response to both the state court and federal court disciplinary proceedings.  The documents will speak for themselves, as they should, and we will not comment significantly on their contents at this point.

There are a few contextual matters to consider, however.  First, the real genesis of this site centered around the very efforts as to which these responses relate, and have involved countless hours of Don's time, and that of his staff, in getting together.  It was an unpaid job undertaken by Don Bailey for all of the clients he has represented over the years, indeed for all American citizens, and the effort cannot be measured in dollars in any case.  It was undertaken amidst an onslaught of abusive efforts to magnify his workload, and compromise the justice of the many clients he has continued to represent, and expects to continue to represent.  It is impeccable work product.

For relevant background, we commend our readers to our August 9, 2011 Bailey under attack article.  It provides what proved to be a fair summary of these … Continue Reading ››

Bailey motion demands that Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismiss disciplinary action against him

On December 7, 2011, Don Bailey filed a motion to dismiss the disciplinary case against him.  The Motion was filed directly with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and alleges that the process itself has been so bereft of constitutional protections, that it is an effective nullity, that there is clear evidence of prosecutorial misconduct, along the lines of what has already been set forth in previous posts, and, most importantly, that he did not violate any rules of professional conduct in any respect.  As it turns out, Bailey’s appropriate and respectful (as those things go) complaints of judicial misconduct, have turned out to be true, as the record of the hearing transcripts (void for any purpose involving Bailey’s license) already has shown.  Please read the motion filed by Bailey: Bailey Supreme Court Motion to Dismiss Discipline Case Significantly, that motion contains cites evidence suggesting that Middle District Judge Christopher C. Conner has testified falsely under oath at the hearing.  The issue is set forth by Bailey as follows:
16.          Judge Conner is believed to have testified falsely on the issue of whether he was a complainant to the ODC, testifying in the hearing that he was not.  Bailey received a “Complaint … Continue Reading ››

Bailey hearing status and PCRLN updates

As we reported in previous posts, there has been something of a hiatus imposed on the Bailey disciplinary proceedings, although there has been some working behind the scenes to move the case forward.  The hearing tapes have been received and are being transcribed, and we hope to bring you both the transcripts and the sound files here. The Bailey docket shows that Bailey has submitted about 2500 pages of documents into the record of the proceedings, and we hope to get these documents and bring them to you here as well.  Apparently, under the odd procedure being followed in this case where lawyers are adjudicating rights of lawyers under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Supreme, and because of the outstanding matters that remained unresolved related to whether Mr. Bailey's Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights will be afforded him, the Disciplinary Board has agreed to  allow Bailey to submit the documents where he and others have complained about judicial misconduct in the past, and to support the allegations he has made that underlie the current complaint.  It appears Bailey and his colleagues and clients have been complaining about these things for years, and nothing was ever done but attack Bailey and others … Continue Reading ››

The Bailey Docket – pleadings and filings in the Bailey disciplinary hearing

There is no better way for each of us to participate in seeking a public solution to the problems we have described in other posts, as revealed through the analysis of the Don Bailey disciplinary process, than to understand the jurisdiction of the courts, and exactly how they do business in cases such as these.  The Don Bailey situation is quite unique, as it involves a clear clash between two wholly separate "jurisdictions", state and federal, implicating some very important principles at the heart of our system of government.  We hope eventually to provide you with all the detail you will need on these concepts of what is known as "federalism", but for now we commend you to The Federalist Papers, a series of essays published in 1787 under the name Publius (written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay), explaining the advantages of the U.S. Constitution. Briefly, as it relates to this case, there has been a clear trend in civil rights cases to invoke the Eleventh Amendment to maintain rigid separation between the jurisdiction of the federal courts and actions involving the affairs of state government, and some of the judges involved in the Bailey matter have used … Continue Reading ››

The lesson of the Bailey disciplinary hearings (phase one) – reform is needed

Two days of testimony have concluded in the case to "get" the law license of Don Bailey, and the lesson of the hearing is resoundingly clear - reform is needed.  The first day involved two federal judges appearing before a hearing chairman/divorce attorney who may still be under federal investigation in the "kids for cash" scandal, and proving that Don Bailey was right when he charged federal judges with having meetings to "get" him.  The second day was a string of Don Bailey clients who testified courageously to their personal experiences in dealing with the effects of the abuse of their attorney.  Bailey's legal assistant and two of his colleagues also added testimony.  All of the testimony will be posted here when it is available. As day two wore on, the witnesses became stronger, and the abject abuse and obstruction by the hearing chairman and the prosecutor became uglier and uglier.  Although the two days (the hearing record remains open pending issues currently before the Supreme Court) proved to be vindication in most ways for the allegations that Don Bailey has made in recent years, it was a black-eye for justice, in our state and in our nation, and rather than … Continue Reading ››

Don Bailey’s opening statement in defense of lawyers and your civil rights

Members of Judicial-Corruption.net, PennsylvaniaCivilRightsLawNetwork.com, and TrueDemocracyParty.net, as well as members of the Berks County Patriot Board, and dozens of loyal clients of Don Bailey, got together and united as we were all in the courtroom for the hearing of Don Bailey this morning in Harrisburg, PA for what really is, or could be, one of the most important hearings to take place in the history of our country that should have never been allowed to occur. The hearing began before a hearing examiner by the name of Brian Cali, Esquire.  Mr. Cali is believed to be under federal investigation for his role in an ankle bracelet business that was connected to the "kids for cash" scandal.  Cali was asked by Bailey to recuse himself from the process, but Cali refused, and has never denied being under investigation at the present time.  Marty Carlson, the federal magistrate judge appointed to get Bailey, was U.S. Attorney early on in the kids for cash scandal, and has been criticized for turning a blind eye to that judicial corruption early on before it got out of control.  Chances are that Carlson's, Killions, and Cali's paths have crossed before.  What is Cali's true role in the … Continue Reading ››

Civil rights lawyer Don Bailey under attack and he and clients sue federal judges for misbehavior

The paramount issue our legal system is presented with currently is the ongoing campaign, if you will, by a small clique of federal judges, and their state and federal political friends, to go after the law license of decorated war veteran, former congressman, former Pennsylvania Auditor General, and now prominent civil rights attorney Don Bailey. Don got into the practice of civil rights over the fallout from his own victimization when, as Auditor General, he revealed substantial pubic corruption in the State of Pennsylvania at its highest levels.  He was visited by state and federal officials, including the United States Attorney himself, and was, in essence, asked what it would take - what graft, gift, or favor - in order for him to back down and look the other way.  Don refused, and stridently, with the truth behind him, assured these scoundrels that he would never be bought, and ever since that day, Don has been in a battle to reveal public corruption, and to fight for its victims.  There is an extensive interview of Don that is recorded in his website, which is linked to this page. To the best of our knowledge, Don is … Continue Reading ››
