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 ››

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 ››
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 ››
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 ››
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 ››
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 ››
Please be advised that the disciplinary hearings for Attorney Don Bailey will proceed on August 11 and 12, 2011, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Judicial Center on Commonwealth Avenue, Harrisburg Pennsylvania. We are asking as many of you that can to please show up for those hearings. Furthermore, Don is in the process of filing a federal civil rights lawsuit where he and at least 20 of his clients at this point are suing these federal judges and others related to the state and federal courts and disciplinary system.
At this point, it appears that there is a fix that is in the state disciplinary process, and we do not say that lightly. Don’s most recent request for a continuance has been denied, and virtually all of the subpoenas that have been served to prove his allegations have been quashed – he is being completely deprived of all due process. Our view of this is that they know that it is just Don against them, and even though Don is and has always been 100% blameless, as long as it is just Don, they can prevail and control the outcome and aftermath, because it’s all kept within the courts … Continue Reading ››
