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.

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 ››

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 ››
The first official reply to the motions to open judgment as referenced in our November 5, 2011 post came from her Honor Sylvia Rambo, Senior District Judge in Harrisburg, and alleged by Bailey to be one of the original participants in the plan to “get Bailey”. Judge Rambo was the presiding Judge in the Vickie Smith/Central Dauphin and James Dewees (Deputy Dauphin County Prison Warden)/Dominick Derose (DCP Warden) cases. The allegations in the motions were, of course, similar, because they are based on the information that has come to light through the Bailey disciplinary proceedings, which have shown what Bailey has been saying for years. As Dewees put it “I always took what Don told me throughout my case about the agenda to get him with a grain of salt, and thought that justice just failed me in my case, but now I realize that what Don said all along has been right.” That is the agenda that has been reported, and uncontested, here or in the courts. Please, if you have not, review the transcripts of the disciplinary proceedings.
Judge Rambo did not wait for any response to the motions, a denial of procedural rights, and made no references to … 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 ››
Stephen Conklin owns a 112 acre farm in Warrington Township, York County, tucked between Gifford Pinchot State Park and the Conewago creek. Steve calls his enclave “Satori Farm”, and has been called to life as a servant. He has opened his farm up to countless people over the years, has hosted festivals, and has provided a small refuge at times for urban children who yearn to enjoy nature.
On the other side of the hill from Satori Farm is a farm where KKK cross-burnings had been known to occur in the not-too-distant past (1970s). Steve’s saga began when the Township started an ordinance enforcement crusade against him, perhaps motivated by a racial animus spurred on by some developers’ interest in acquiring a prime piece of real estate.
Steve had been through numerous attorneys, and mortgage payments of his mysteriously disappeared, causing him an arrearage, leading to a series of fraudulent and ongoing attempts to foreclose on his property, and ultimately leading him to Don Bailey in 2004. Bailey filed a federal case on Steve’s behalf, which was assigned to Judge Conner, and led to the May, 2006, 4-page opinion, which is linked below that Steve, and others, believed reflected racial animus, or … Continue Reading ››
The Thom Lewis case really tells a large part of the saga of Don Bailey, and others being the direct target of specifically alleged and provable judicial misconduct. This case also reveals the political and personal interconnectedness of Judge Jones with some individuals who are involved in some sort of cults/healing centers, and dog trafficking, who were running parts of their operations out of the PLCB offices when Jones was the Chairman, and were in business and/or affiliated with Office of Disciplinary Counsel personnel. This case lead to the underlying federal court sanctions proceeding, which in turn led to the referral of the document linked below to Disciplinary Counsel (Killion and Fulton) and to the charges being discussed throughout this site.
