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.

Dateline: Harrisburg Pennsylvania, September 27, 2012
A group of registered voters comprised of registered Democrats, Republicans and Independents filed suit today in federal district court naming Tom Corbett and House Majority Leader Rep. Michael Turzai as defendants.
The suit alleges that Corbett and Turzai conspired with Republican operatives across the country to violate the rights of registered voters who seek to elect Barack Obama. The suit further alleges that Turzai publicly admitted that the goal and purpose of the two named defendants was to deny the rights of the poor, the elderly, and blacks using state power to skewer the election in Romney's favor.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit charged that their federal constitutional rights to work together and cooperate in an effort to elect Obama is being violated by Corbett and Turzai who are using the power of the state to unlawfully interfere with their First Amendment rights.
The lawsuit also raises concerns about creating a national registry of citizens that can be abused by national and state governments akin to allowing the government to spy on people and determine their political beliefs and affiliations.

Penn State/Good old boys network
A large part of the legacy of the Penn State/Sandusky scandal has been lost this week with the passing of legendary coach and Penn State benefactor Joe Paterno. The what he knows and when he knew its and what he should have dones are now forever academic. We posited that Paterno was, to a degree, a victim of the
of attorneys, politicians, and judges who have been acculturated to control and conceal institutionally damaging information. This has been discussed in the Margo Royer matter
as well. All that will be further said at this point is that Pennsylvania has lost a larger-than-life man whose legacy may have been unfairly tarnished by those to whom responsible charge of the information was entrusted.
Bill Keisling of Yardbird Books has published a well-researched analysis of the Sandusky scandal in the larger context of the political use of the Office of Attorney General by Governor Tom Corbett, with detailed discussion of the primacy of the bonusgate scandal. Keisling explores in detail how Corbett dedicated untold resources to the political prosecution of legislators in comparison to the deliberately impotent effort to investigate the Sandusky allegations, and the real costs involved in … Continue Reading ››

Attorneys take cues from the courts and seek sanctions from Bailey client
As we brought to you in our update on the Bailey class clients
who have filed their own motions to open judgment
, Judge A. Richard Caputo denied the motion filed by Deborah Phillis, and the opinion was immediately released into the public domain through a private research service. Caputo’s Orders in the Miles Thomas and Jeffrey Dock cases were released to the same service. Another Caputo Order conspicuously came through the same service sanctioning Bailey in the Dave and Pam Morris case, who have filed a motion to open of their own. Caputo piles on.
In accord with the serious developing theme, i.e. the Conklin case and Bailey disciplinary proceedings, none of these Bailey clients are getting due process hearings, or any procedure whatsoever.
The first attorneys to take the bait, so-to-speak, come from the Harrisburg law firm of Shumaker Williams, through attorney Michael Rowan, who has filed a Motion for Sanctions
sanctions against Deb Phillis, citing a lack of any reasonable basis to her claims that she has suffered prejudice because of who her attorney is that affected her case before Judge … Continue Reading ››

Constitutional Law 101
article, we referenced the very simple analysis by which United States District Judge Robert D. Mariani could only reach one conclusion, a conclusion that most of us were first introduced to by the third grade – that in America, property cannot be taken without due process of law, which means a fair and impartial hearing before a fair and impartial tribunal. Steve Conklin had neither, not even an unfair hearing in a partial tribunal - he had none whatsoever, and his property is scheduled to be taken away, by force, Monday, January 23, 2012. The Supreme Court of the United States in a case called Hovey v. Elliot
, 167 U.S. 409 (1897) instructs that this will be a lawless act. The new federal judge, and 30 year union attorney, is condoning and fomenting lawlessness by rogue state officials. This is the only conclusion that can rationally be reached under the law.
We talked in prior posts of the skepticism with which we viewed Mariani's eleventh hour grant
of the second TRO on January 4, 2012, and the expressed skepticism was the most favorable spin we could put on the move, as there … Continue Reading ››

Once again, due to the prolific efforts of Steve Conklin, and his network of supporters, which is believed to include well over 100 American citizens reading this site, and the coverage of the
saga on other sites as well, primarily through occupyharrisburg.org
, who wrote and called Judge Mariani to ask him to stop the paramilitary eviction of Steve and his family, which has again been put off by a Temporary Restraining Order entered by Judge Mariani sometime last evening. A copy of the TRO followed by Steve's motion follow:
TRO January 4
Conklin December 30 Motion for TRO
