ARE WE LIVING IN THE AMERICAN GULAG?
by Linda Starr, blogging at lgstarr
(Mar. 17, 2011) — These are the kind of heroes that will be the only reason our great Republic survives–if it does.
The degree of personal sacrifice in this situation, in order root out the worst kind of political-judicial corruption, goes WAY beyond the call of duty…well, not really beyond the call of duty but certainly beyond the willingness of many of us to endure what appeared to be a permanent sentence of solitary confinement (and denial of medical treatment) for a 70-year-old Ph.D. of International Law and practicing attorney.
Full Disclosure covered attorney Richard I. Fine’s arrest on March 4, 2009 for Civil contempt of Court. He attempted to disqualify the Judge for accepting illegal payments from a party to the case. He claims Senate Bill SBX2 11 acknowledged the payments as criminal by giving Judges and officials retroactive immunity from prosecution. Fine remains in solitary “coercive confinement” in County jail.
Since this was first published, Dr. Fine has been released. Without protracted sacrifice from Leslie C. Dutton and volunteers, he would have remained in custody.
This is an AMAZING story of corruption that goes way beyond what we all imagine might be going on in California–and as it turns out, around our country! It is in the process of becoming a book and, most probably, a movie. You can find out more here:

I heard Leslie speak at a Women’s Federated meeting today in Chatsworth. It was very difficult to hear how an educated man with a distinguished law practice would be put in solitary confinement by a crooked judge and denied medical treatment at 70 years of age and, as retaliation for exposing corruption, be disbarred and lose his Beverly Hills law practice–and almost his home–just because a bunch of judges are getting millions in kickbacks from local politicians! This is what you hear goes on in China and other countries that are serial abusers of human rights–IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!
Editor’s Note: The Post & Email covered Atty. Fine’s case here.
Good article. More Marina residents need to get out and voice their concern. Way to go Richard Fine and Leslie Dutton.
Remember, Richard Fine has given marching orders to everyone who wants to help but does not know what to do. In many of Full Disclosure’s terrific reports, Richard Fine tells us that our part is to “Vote the Bums Out.” This must be done unilaterally to all politicians and judges in election after election until we have attention of our civic rulers. Until them, we will be ruled by them, and we and our interests will not be represented.
Thank you Linda, for getting this out there. We’ve been trying to get the attention of someone who still honors the oath they took, but apparently there’s not an honorable public, elected, or law enforcement, official left in this country. In fact, they’ve all banded together to cover each others’ butts. It’s astounding to see the degree of immaturity, blatant disregard of the law, and criminal contempt by our government here in California. Leslie Dutton at Full Disclosure has been doing a fine job keeping this epic story in the public light, but, the mainstream media is completely ignorant and incompetent on this major crime wave. It makes the Mafia look like Girl Scouts. What we have here in LA is judicial terrorism, lawyers refuse to take certain cases in fear of retaliation by the judges, and jail time for doing their jobs. Yes, it’s that bad.
AFTER 23 MONTHS OF SENDING CORRESPONDENCE TO THE CLERK OF THE COURT I DISCOVERED THAT THE CLERK ‘FAILED’ TO RECORD THE PROOF OF CORRECTION: AUTO INSURANCE AND REGISTRATION, NO LESS THAN 3 DIFFERENT TIMES. THIS WAS SENT BY CERTIFIED MAIL EACH OF THE THREE TIMES. EACH TIME IT WAS SINGED FOR. AND, EACH TIME THE CORRECTION WAS NOT RECORDED. EVEN THE CHECK I SENT THEM FOR PAYMENT IN FULL [WHICH WAS RETURNED TO ME] WAS NEVER RECORDED. THE COURT CLERK EVEN SAW FIT TO RECORD THE OUTSIDE OF THE ENVELOPE I MAILED THE PROOF OF CORRECTIONS IN, BUT THE CORRECTIONS THEMSELVES ARE MISSING? WHEN I ASKED THE COURT CLERK WHERE IT WAS? SHE SAID “THAT’S ALL THERE IS” CLAIMING THAT THAT WAS ALL THEY RECEIVED!
THIS WOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE EXCEPT THAT I WAS/AM STILL BEING CHARGED FOR THE CORRECTION OF DRIVING ISSUES THAT WERE NOT IN NEED OF CORRECTION IN THE FIRST PLACE.
YESTERDAY I WAS IN TRAFFIC COURT. I WAS TOLD BY SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE PHILIP F. STANGER, THAT NOT ONLY WAS “I WRONG” BUT THAT “I DID NOT HAVE A CASE”! HE EVEN HAD THE GALL TO SUGGEST THAT “I SPENT MORE TIME FIGURING OUT HOW TO PAY THE FINE.”
DOES THE CLERK OF THE COURT HAVE THE POWER AND THE AUTHORITY TO ‘CHERRY-PICK’ WHAT THEY WILL AND WILL NOT RECORD WITH REGARDS TO ANY GIVEN CASE OR HAVE MY 14TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS – THE RIGHT TO “DUE PROCESS” – BEEN VIOLATED?
