Criminal Complaint Against Christie Allowed to Proceed.
On March 20, 2017 I received a communication from the Clerk of the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, U.S. Courthouse, 500 Pearl Street, New York, N.Y. 10007.
This communication contained a jury summons form emanating from the same office that issued the erroneous state jury summons form previously answered by me and repeating the "error" yet again.
I will complete the new form explaining that, in accordance with the law, I am ineligible for service on a federal jury in New York for 4 years and on a state jury for 6 years from my most recent service on a unified jury panel in June, 2016.
I will post the proof of mailing this latest form by overnight mail to the District Court Clerk.
Copies of the form and relevant proofs together with the items indicated below will be forwarded to United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor; U.S. Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions; the Acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York; Hon. Janet Di Fiori of the New York Court of Appeals; William B. Ziff, Esq. -- who may be responsible for this communication -- and to the Cuban Embassy in Washington, D.C. I will retain copies of all documents sent to these persons and offices.
It is dangerous and harmful to the dignity of the federal courts to "use" or to "play games with" something as valuable and sacrosanct as the jury selection system to intimidate (or harass) a person whose writings are deemed "inconvenient" by powerful political bosses.
Are such tactics an example of New Jersey's legal ethics?
How strange it is that my phone and television signal have been blocked from New Jersey?
I hope and believe that these services have now been restored.
I am not intimidated nor discouraged in my efforts to reach the federal courts and receive a response from American law enforcement in this perilous situation.
I will continue to write.
Continuing computer warfare makes it difficult to say whether I will be able to write at library computers from one day to the next.
I will ignore all threats against me.
Ms. Elissa Krauss
Jury Support Office

New York, N.Y. 10004
Dear Ms. Krauss:
Thank you for your letter dated February 17, 2017 recognizing your error in sending me a jury summons, also admitting that I am correct to insist on my ineligibility for 6 years from my most recent jury service, and "apologizing for any inconvenience" to me resulting from your error.
I will send a copy of your letter and of the envelope in which it arrived to the persons listed below.
There seems to be a curious discrepancy between the postage meter number on your envelope and the post office mark at the bottom of the same envelope.
I must say, however, the cream-colored stationary is lovely and surprising for a government office.
I will send a copy of your letter to William B. Ziff, Esq. of New Jersey whose prose style is so similar to your own.
Not all bureaucrats admit their errors, apologize for them, and seek to avoid them in the future.
Perhaps "Mr. Ziff" and New Jersey's OAE to say nothing of the New Jersey Supreme Court will learn a valuable lesson from your example.
You say that "if my name is incorrect [sic.] in one of the other [government?] systems" I may receive yet another jury summons.
In obtaining my New York resident identification card and citizenship certificate I ensured that my name appears correctly on all government computer records.
I am confident that I can prove this fact if there is the slightest doubt about the matter.
Accordingly, the explanation that you suggest for this strange error by your office is not very plausible.
I trust that the "error" will not be repeated.
Very truly yours,
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor (w/encls.)
U.S. Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions (w/encls.)
U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara (w/encls.)
Hon. Janet Di Fiori of the New York Court of Appeals (w/encls.)
William B. Ziff, Esq., OAE, Trenton (w/encls.)
The Embassy of Cuba to the United States of America (w/encls.)
The very suggestion that moral (or for that matter even legal) argument is capable of persuading New Jersey's Supreme Court to take appropriate and necessary action to rectify a great injustice that has created a public danger that is worsening on a daily basis is no doubt more "naive and sentimental idealism" on my part. ("New Jersey's Feces-Covered Supreme Court" and "New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics.")
Unlike something as concrete as cash in an envelope, I suppose -- or a political favor in exchange for a judicial "service"-- rational persuasiveness is highly unlikely, it seems, to convince the likes of Stuart Rabner or Barry Albin to risk offending the boys downtown or their political bosses to say nothing of Mr. Netanyahu and his friends. ("New Jersey's Political and Supreme Court Whores" and "John McGill, Esq., the OAE, and New Jersey Corruption.")
The harm to innocent children whose lives may be destroyed, careers derailed, and the growing genuine risk of physical harm to persons in several states will not concern these distinguished gentlemen (or their colleagues of any and all genders) so long as there is room for plausible denial. ("An Open Letter to Cyrus Vance, Jr., Esq.")
It is all grist to the mill in Trenton. Everybody is used to this stuff by now.
The rape and torture of 14 year-old girls is not all that distressing in New Jersey. As they say in Jersey City: "That's just how the cookie crumbles." ("Menendez Consorts With Underage Prostitutes" and "40 Persons Arrested in New Jersey's Latest Massive Child Porn Scandal" then "14-Year-Old Girl Goes For $500 in Union City, New Jersey.")
To ask men and women who have so visibly and publicly soiled their judicial robes to consider the effects of their failures to act, lying, dereliction of duty, and continuing cover-ups as they pronounce judgments on the "ethics" of others may well be absurd. ("Have you no shame Mr. Rabner?")
Being an optimist about human nature I am unwilling to give up on the possibilities of redemption and development of a conscience even among Trenton's judicial "sinners." ("New Jersey's Judges Disgrace America" and "New Jersey's Failed Judiciary.")
"Stuart" and "Barry," I ask you, what would your rabbis say about this continuing silence and cover-up after the notorious and humiliating lies of William B. Ziff, Esq. have been exposed?
I am sure that my familiarity will not be a problem since I have been addressed by my first name by N.J.'s Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE) on so many occasions.
I do not mind risking "absurdity" for requesting that "jurists" in Trenton ponder the daily harm to their own tribunal, lawyers and judges, even to all litigants in their state, from the unprecedented corruption and incompetence of New Jersey's legal system that is anything but subtle.
My "situation" has attracted an international audience of legal scholars, attorneys, and judges appalled at what they are seeing and, like me, unable to explain the apathy and lethargy of what are clearly failed legal institutions in what is ostensibly an American jurisdiction.
The OAE's cover-up does not seem very effective at this point. ("An Open Letter to My Torturers in New Jersey, Terry Tuchin and Diana Lisa Riccioli.")
More than shock at what has been described as New Jersey's "bemerded legal system" what many observers evidently feel and report is disgust and moral outrage that the U.S. legal system has declined to this level in 2017. ("'This is totally amazing!' -- Donald J. Trump.")
If there is any hope that judges and prosecutors, or law enforcement personnel will recognize the reality before their eyes in order to comply with the law, finally, I feel compelled at least to try to persuade them to do so.
How can you contemplate yourselves as New Jersey judges and justices while continuing to lie about and cover-up through your silence such horrible crimes? Does the word "hypocrisy" have any meaning for you Mr. Rabner and Mr. Albin? Will the further placement of feces in New Jersey courtrooms -- or even injuries to innocent persons -- continue to be ignored in order to protect your precious reputations?
The final version of the essay that appears below with one hundred sources attached will be sent by priority mail to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Judge Janet Di Fiori of the New York Court of Appeals, and the Cuban Embassy to the United States of America.
A copy of the posted essay will also be forwarded to William B. Ziff, Esq. at the Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE) in Trenton, New Jersey.
The U.S. Supreme Court is responsible for the integrity of state courts and ensuring compliance with the U.S. Constitution by all American tribunals so as to be concerned with events described in these essays.
No judges, prosecutors, police or elected officials nor media sources in the U.S. have responded to my communications as I type these words in 2017.
The public danger from this situation continues to grow.
I have been advised by the professionals who prepare my taxes and those of my family members that we are required to provide, electronically, copies of personal identifications in order for our tax forms to be completed.
I have been asked, specifically, for my New York identification card to be scanned and sent electronically to the relevant offices.
These documents are protected by privacy laws, of course, and my photo identification has additional security provisions that are meant to discourage anyone resembling me from seeking to use it -- or to disseminate the photo online -- since there are no photos of me online at this time. The same security precautions apply concerning any other intended "misuse" of these documents contemplated by Union City, North Bergen, or other Jersey officials that may prove disastrous for them.
The relevant information pertaining to these matters will now be a part of my communications to the Justice Department and others listed above and will be made public online.

"Wayne Hills Grad, UNC Player Charged in Rape, Cyberstalking: Coach in Charlotte Says Incident Was Off-Campus," The Record, February 21, 2017, p. 1L. (Allegations that this same young man has done identical acts in New Jersey -- against very young victims -- without repercussions leads to the question of why it was O.K. in Wayne Hills? Athletes seem to be excused from normal conduct or maybe this is standard New Jersey behavior.)
"On Thursday, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey had a meatloaf lunch with President Trump at the White House amid talk, once again, that [Mr. Christie] was on his way to a job in Washington." (NYT, 2-17-17, p. A23.)
Mr. Christie's efforts to find life somewhere in national politics after his failed governorship in N.J. are unlikely to succeed because the Bridgegate scandal simply refuses to go away.
In a bizarre and unwelcome way, in fact, Bridgegate seems to capture something ugly about America's "Soprano State" as well as to define Mr. Christie's style as a politician.
Mr. Christie has been tainted (yet again) by the brutal and cruel tactics of New Jersey's grotesque politics.
The governor's physical appearance seems to play into the stereotyping of Mr. Christie as a "Jersey Style" thuggish backrooms politician who is not very bright and unconcerned about those hurt by his methods.
I do not believe that Chris Christie is stupid.
Although there may be some merit in claims that he is lacking in moral sensitivity or compassion for those less fortunate than himself.
There may well be some justice in this caricature of Governor Christie as a thug.
Trenton's "governator" is regarded as a "liar" by the majority of New Jersey's residents in recent polls.
Many of these same residents refer to more than the Bridgegate matter in explaining their views.
The governor's national press conferences, for example, have burned into the minds of his fellow New Jerseyans the image of a man nearly pathologically incapable of telling the truth about anything while his "improvisations" on issues leave a great deal to be desired in terms of plausibility. ("On Bullshit" and "Chris Christie's Bridge of Sighs.")
Mr. Christie appears to be a political "stumblebum."
He confirms all of the worst stereotypes associated with the legal profession in the Garden State that he has now disgraced to say nothing of the governmental corruption in Trenton that he promised to end and has actually come to embody:
"By Thursday, though, Mr. Christie was on the menu of a municipal court [sic.] in Fort Lee, N.J., where a citizen had lodged a criminal complaint against him over the George Washington Bridge lane-closing affair and a judge ruled that the case could proceed." (NYT, 2-17-17, p. A23, emphasis added.)
According to The Star-Ledger which is still barred from the Port Authority building in midtown New York:
"A Bergen County municipal court [sic.] judge ruled Thursday that a citizen's complaint of official misconduct by Gov. Chris Christie can proceed anew, re-issuing a criminal summons that the governor had twice sought to have dismissed."
The crucial and, I believe, accurate charge today is that --
" -- Christie failed to act to relieve the politically-motivated 2013 Fort Lee access lane closures at the George Washington Bridge after being informed of their occurrence, something the governor has steadfastly denied."
Bergen County prosecutors do not wish to deal with this matter because, allegedly, they have a "conflict of interest" since they answer to "bosses who serve at the pleasure of the governor."
A "conflict of interest" and "public lying" -- by failing to disclose such a conflict -- is unethical for lawyers like the Bergen prosecutors and Mr. Christie. ("New Jersey's Politically Connected Lawyers On the Tit" and "Corrupt Law Firms, Senator Bob, and New Jersey Ethics.")
The matter has been fixed with the OAE and Mr. Ziff, apparently, so there will be no grievance filed against these sleazy lawyers. ("New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics" and "New Jersey Lawyers' Ethics Farce" then "John McGill, Esq., the OAE, and New Jersey Corruption.")
Mr. Trump wishes to avoid Jersey filth in his White House.
I doubt that President Trump's ethics goal will change or that -- despite Mr. Christie's loyal service during the election -- New Jersey's governor will ever be asked to join this administration, nor will many others from New Jersey. ("Christie and Mastro Accuse each Other of Lying.")
"If Mr. Christie is in line for a job in the Trump White House, he might find the president sympathetic to gripes about judges." (NYT, 2-17-17, p. A23.)

I continue to receive calls from 800 numbers actually traced to 212-151-5690 and "other numbers" registered to "name unavailable." Mr. Pizzuro? I am sure that this is only a coincidence. Computer crimes and efforts at censorship at New York Public Library computers are a daily reality for me.)

Disabled young women are beaten, sexually assaulted, and otherwise taken advantage of in the state's many group homes to the usual indifference of the bribed officials in Trenton and equally corrupt and/or incompetent judges.

Mr. Christie CONTINUES to lie and try to cover-up what he knew, did -- and failed to do -- about the crisis as it was unfolding and since that time. The governor supervises all law enforcement at the state level in New Jersey and is an attorney as well as a former federal prosecutor.

Efforts to control the media by denying journalists access or refusing their questions if they are critical -- which is their job -- has become routine for the Trump administration and is nothing new for Mr. Christie.

Being Jewish and "connected" the mayor was allowed to slide away with no difficulties. Mr. Steinman was not arrested, no ethics charges were brought against him, and he was not tested for alcohol consumption by the police, and he was also not drugged or questioned under hypnosis by police in violation of his rights nor was he sexually assaulted in an impaired state. "We only do that to minorities!" The OAE is alleged to have explained this point to the baffled public.)

(Bob Menendez supporter Richard Diaz -- former Police Chief and Public Safety Director -- required Passaic to settle a $500,000 sexual assault case against him in 2005. Mr. Diaz may have attempted to silence yet another woman complainant. This activity was not deemed "unethical" in New Jersey. Mr. Diaz may well collect his three-to-five possible public pensions in due course. Mr. Menendez will go on trial for bribery in September, 2017. Unless there is a drastic surprise experts believe that a conviction is likely for New Jersey's senior senator and there may yet be a second indictment for the politician from Union City.)

Mr. Rabner and Debbie Poritz were no longer in a position to help David Samson. Malbus? Howard Brownstein, Esq.? It is significant that the OAE took no action against this crooked lawyer. Only the federal courts acted appropriately to disbar this "worthless liar and incompetent fool": "Samson, 77, who was the state's top government lawyer when he served as ATTORNEY GENERAL in 2002 and 2003, also faces a likely sentence of probation to 24 months in prison, under federal guidelines."

Lynne Stewart served a prison term for distributing a statement by her client, which seems to many of us to be First Amendment-protected activity, but she was a radical defense attorney displeasing prosecutors by her fervor.

Was Mr. Linares as a former associate at the very same law firm once ruled by Samson and Bross not, inevitably, involved in a conflict of interest in sentencing this particular slimeball offender? Were these conflicts on the part of the judge disclosed on the record to allow the U.S. Attorney to apply for another judge if this was deemed appropriate? Is this episode of mutual back-scratching not the essence of an "appearance" of unethical conduct? Was Mr. Linares "spoken to" by anyone off the record concerning Mr. Samson's possible sentence?

Without comment [!] the nation's top court rejected a Menendez petition that argued a Philadelphia appeals court misinterpreted the Constitution's 'speech or debate' clause, which bars the executive and judicial branches from questioning a member of Congress about legislative activity." Mr. Menendez will go to trial on the criminal charges that he faces. I believe that Mr. Menendez is very likely to be convicted at that trial. In accordance with federal guidelines it seems probable that, if convicted, Mr. Menendez will serve 13-to-15 years in federal prison. It is remarkable that in criminal litigation concerning a sitting member of the U.S. Senate there was no detailed opinion or comment on the merits of the First Amendment and Congressional status issues raised by Mr. Menendez's counsel on the part of the justices. The Court seems to be indicating by this silence that they view this matter as concerned with bribery issues exclusively and are not inclined to "change the subject." The U.S. Supreme Court occasionally frowns, publicly, on efforts based on status or wealth and power of litigants to claim that a party or parties are "too clever by half" since they are "getting bigger than their britches" or for some or any other reason see themselves as "beyond the law." A fall-down case is not Constitutional litigation. By the same token a bribery matter is not unfamiliar or unheard of in the American criminal law system, sadly, both at the state and federal levels. Placing lipstick, as it were, on this pig will not result in the winning of any beauty contests. I suggest that Senator Menendez and his counsel prepare thoroughly for trial. The mystery -- if there is one in this litigation -- concerns the role that Dr. Melgen will play. It is still possible that Dr. Melgen or "others" with "intimate knowledge" of these facts will testify AGAINST Mr. Menendez. If so -- if Mr. Menendez's companion in Paris, for example, testifies at trial -- then the likelihood of conviction increases greatly. Curiously, the young lady in question is said to be among the prospective witnesses as are others who may surprise Mr. Menendez.)
