An Arizona court has ruled that the Diegel sisters are now eligible for adoption, and have terminated all of Melissa Diegel’s rights to her children. In a recently released video, this mother displays an incredible act of love for the children that CPS will no longer allow her to parent. She pleads for someone good to step up and adopt her children, so that, if they cannot be with their family, they will at least be with good people who will love and care for them. It is a plea that no loving parent should ever be forced to make.
Melissa received the shattering news from the courts that Judge Kristin Hoffman has ruled to sever all of her and her ex-husband’s parental rights to Kayla and Hannah. It was the day before Christmas Eve. She was devastated, and could not bring herself to make the bitter announcement to her supporters until recently.
See original story published on Health Impact News on October 4, 2014:

10 and 12 Year Old Sisters Seized from Family by Hospital in Phoenix [3]

The Diegel Family story spawned a slew of families contacting Health Impact News with similar stories in Arizona, and around the country, and was the genesis for the birth of MedicalKidnap.com [4].
In the update video, Melissa pointed out that the court denied them the Constitutional right to Due Process. Her side was not allowed to call any personal witnesses, nor was any of their exculpatory evidence allowed to be admitted into court.
Over the course of their ordeal, Melissa points out that she and her team of supporters have posted a great deal of evidence online which demonstrates that she did not abuse her daughters, and that there was corruption behind the scenes in her case. Yet, none of that evidence was allegedly permitted to be part of the proceedings. Much of that evidence has been posted on a Facebook page set up for that purpose calledEvidence Matters [5], as well as the Miracle for Two Sisters [6] Facebook page, and in various YouTube videos.
This calls into question the veracity and validity of all of the court hearings against Melissa Diegel. The idea behind a fair legal hearing is that both sides bring forth their evidence, and a decision is rendered by a judge or jury. Yet many times at Health Impact News, we have seen that parents are denied the right to show the court the evidence that would exonerate them.

Melissa states that she tried to bring into evidence a document from Phoenix Children’s Hospital which showed that they intended to take the Diegel sisters away from their family. This document allegedly dates to before CPS was ever even called, and before they ever spoke with Melissa or her daughters.
Also, as sometimes happens in family court, the public and the media were not permitted to be in the courtroom during the Diegel hearings. When that happens, transparency is lost. There is no way for the public to hold government officials accountable for misdeeds in court. Any decision made when the hearing takes place behind closed doors calls into question the integrity of the proceedings. How is the public to know if any such verdict is just or not?
Here is the video announcing that parental rights were terminated:
Melissa concluded the video with her poignant explanation of why she is “all over the internet”:
One of the reasons that we have #MelissaDiegel is because the last day I saw my daughters 17 months ago, I said to my daughters, “You will never lose me. You will always be able to find me. I will be all over the internet.” That is why it is #MelissaDiegel, so my daughters will always be able to find me. They will never lose me, because I am all over the internet.
On Monday, Melissa uploaded the video asking for someone good to adopt her children. She says:
It is my greatest wish that my daughters be safe. If the state of Arizona is not going to return my daughters to me or to their father, then it is my greatest wish that my daughters would be safe, in the arms of somebody else, that they would be raised in a safe and loving environment.
Melissa asserts that she has evidence that the girls have been abused, and continue to be abused, in the foster home where they currently reside. Arizona has refused to allow any kinship placement of the girls.
She vows to continue to fight to get her children back, and to fight for the many other children that are in the system unjustly.
Here is the latest video.

South Carolina Family has Children Medically Kidnapped Based on Wrong Diagnosis from Child Abuse Specialist

When Tai Simmons-Roper and her husband Shawn took their 4 week old baby Braxton to Greenville Memorial Hospital in South Carolina for excessive spitting up, the last thing they expected was that doctors would find multiple unexplained fractures, and that they would be thrown into jail and have their beloved new baby taken away from them by Child Protective Services. They had no way of knowing that their son had serious metabolic bone disease, nor did the Child Abuse Specialist who reported them test Braxton to rule out such conditions before reporting them for child abuse.
After later medical reports were sent to the DA confirming that Braxton actually has infantile rickets and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, all criminal charges were dropped. However, DSS (Department of Social Services) is still refusing to give custody back to his parents. Braxton’s older brother was also taken away, and DSS won’t let him go home either.
Their case is allegedly based on the medical opinion of a Child Abuse Specialist at Greenville Memorial Hospital, Dr. Mary-Fran Crosswell [1]. Her partner, Dr. Henderson, has been involved in several cases of medical kidnapping that have been reported by Health Impact News.

Another Baby Medically Kidnapped in South Carolina over Broken Bones – Parents Thrown in Jail [3]

Several medical experts have reportedly examined Braxton’s medical records and x-rays, and they report that findings of child abuse are not supported by the evidence. In fact, they point out that numerous clear signs of very real medical problems were missed or ignored by the Child Abuse Specialists.
Dr. Doug Benson is an Orthopedic surgeon and a recognized expert on infantile rickets and metabolic bone disorders, who states that Braxton’s low Vitamin D level of 14 is a clear indicator that the baby already had problems. He pulled no punches in his report:
To ignore a Vit. D25 level of 14 or suggest it is not relevant is as indefensible as to ignore a very low blood sugar in a comatose patient.

Early Concerns About Braxton’s Health

Braxton was born on November 25, 2014, at Greenville Memorial Hospital. Tai was happy that she was able to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) after her c-section birth with Braxton’s big brother 3 years earlier. He was a big baby – 9 lbs 5 oz, but he appeared healthy. He got a Vitamin K shot and Hepatitis B vaccine before going home from the hospital.
Tai was exclusively breastfeeding him, but they became concerned when Braxton started spitting up excessively. On December 23, there was a spot of blood in his spit up, so Tai and Shawn took him to a nearby hospital in North Carolina, where they had just moved days earlier. The doctors thought that he had pyloric stenosis and reflux, and told her to come back on Christmas Eve for an ultrasound test and other testing. They were told to come back after Christmas.
While the family visited Tai’s mother and family for Christmas, Tai noticed that there were bruises on her son’s legs. Her mother, Misty Mays, told her that it was probably from the doctors holding Braxton down for the tests, and that things like that happen sometimes.
After they returned to NC, Braxton was again spitting up with flecks of blood in it. They took him back to the hospital where they ruled out pyloric stenosis, but found meningococcal bacteria in his blood. IV antibiotics were started, and his arm was bruised from nurses inserting the IV. He was in the hospital 4 days, and his grandparents visited often. He was home again for less than 24 hours before he was again spitting up blood. His parents took him back to the hospital, and the doctors noted the bruises. That hospital referred him to Greenville Memorial Hospital in Greenville, SC.

Greenville – Where the Real Problems Began

Tai and her family were unaware that the Greenville hospital has two Pediatric Child Abuse Specialists on staff. They simply believed that Greenville was going to provide better care for their sick baby, who was the light of their lives.
Braxton’s easy bruising was becoming a pattern, and Tai’s mother, Misty Mays, had been noticing thumb size bruising on his legs and ankles wherever Braxton had been held down for testing. At one point she noticed a thumb sized bruise on his scrotum, where earlier a nurse had pressed on it during a urinalysis test. That bruise was not there when they arrived at Greenville the day before. She pointed it out to the doctor when he made rounds.
Because of the bruising, doctors decided to order x-rays. This is standard policy, set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics [4], because they teach that:
In the absence of independently witnessed accidental trauma or a known medical cause, any bruising in a nonmobile child is highly concerning for abuse and necessitates an evaluation for child abuse.
The Pediatrics journal article is co-authored by Dr. James Anderst [5], who is a Child Abuse Pediatrician at the SCAN clinic at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. Jaxon Adams was medically kidnapped after being seen in Anderst’s clinic. See:

Eight year old Jaxon Taken By Hospital When Parents Ask For Second Opinion [6]

The article states, while doctors evaluate the child for evidence of abuse, such children with bruising should simultaneously be evaluated by other conditions which can also cause easy bruising, including Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), yet this allegedly was not done.
At the time that Tai and Shawn brought Braxton to the hospital, no one yet realized that Tai herself had EDS. Children of parents with EDS are at increased risk of having the disorder themselves, but no one at Greenville seemed interested in evaluating to see if there were any other explanations for the bruising. Naturally, the bruising was “unexplained” because the parents didn’t know that their child had a medical disorder.
Also, according to Dr. Benson:
The “easy bruisability,” particularly in an infant with a family history of problems with gastroesophageal reflux, should have been recognized as a manifestation of a possible collagen disorder or coagulopathy. The medical records reviewed did not indicate that this was ever adequately considered or tested for.
Braxton bruises
From Grandmother: “While in my care Braxton suffered a fracture on his foot and several bruises that I could not explain. We knew something was not right. I carried him to Urgent Care in April. Tai was not even allowed to see Braxton at this point. The doctor had to take blood and left her entire hand print on his leg where she drew blood. She agreed to put that in his record. She did it on accident.” Source: Misty Mays

Child Abuse Specialist Accuses Parents of Abuse

Misty recounts that, when the results of the x-rays came back, Dr. Mary-Fran Crosswell [1], Child Abuse Specialist, confidently told the family that Braxton had been abused and had been shaken. She said that the baby had 2 fractures on his knees, 2 on his ankles, and “almost” had a fracture on his wrist.
She reported Tai and Shawn to Child Protective Services (DSS). While the family was still reeling in shock, Dr. Crosswell reportedly told them:
We’re going to go ahead and do a CT scan, but I can already tell you that he’s going to have brain damage.
But that was not what the scan reportedly showed. There was allegedly no brain damage at all. Tai reports that Dr. Crosswell made numerous accusations, but every time tests were done to confirm the things she accused them of, the tests would come back negative.
Also routine according to AAP policy is to perform another set of x-rays about 2 weeks after initial x-rays show multiple unexplained fractures. Misty told Health Impact News that Dr. Crosswell told her:
I’m sure when you bring him back for the follow up skeletal survey in two weeks, we’re going to find multiple fractures.
The doctor’s earlier pronouncements of doom and abuse with the brain damage had terrified the family, and grandmother Misty questioned Dr. Crosswell’s presuppositions:
Are you as sure of that as you were that he’s going to have brain damage?
There was one additional fracture found in the follow-up skeletal survey, on Braxton’s foot, where he had reportedly been held down during another test.
Reports as to the number of broken bones in Braxton vary. Tai reports that she was told that Braxton had 3 rib fractures. Misty said that DSS told her that the doctor said there were 12. Braxton’s pediatrician later mentioned the rib fractures, but Misty said that information had to have come from the hospital.
Later, both Misty and Tai report that Dr. Crosswell denied ever saying anything about rib fractures. Dr. Benson and other experts later examined the x-rays and determined that the fractures date back to Braxton’s birth, or possibly earlier. Misty and Tai theorize that, because the fractures had to have happened either in the womb or during the birth, they don’t fit the picture of child abuse, and indicated that there were problems with his bones from the very beginning. This is why they believe that Greenville Memorial Hospital swept the rib fractures under the rug.

Tai and Shawn were arrested on charges of child abuse and thrown into jail on January 5, 2015. A judge issued a no-contact order and neither parent was permitted to see their son or each other for 6 months. Fortunately, DSS obeyed the federal laws about kinship placement in this case, and permitted Braxton to go to his grandmother Misty’s home on January 2. Tai’s 4 year old son from a previous relationship was also seized by DSS, and he was sent to live with his paternal grandparents.

Indications of Real Medical Conditions, Not Abuse

Since Braxton was taken from his parents, both he and his mother have been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos/hypermobility Syndrome. Severe allergies are associated with EDS.
Shortly after Braxton was taken, the formerly breastfed baby was put on formula. The spitting up of blood only appeared a couple of times after that. Tai believes that he was very allergic to something in her diet. She never had the opportunity to try eliminating various things from her diet in order to find the culprit, which is the usual protocol if a baby is allergic to something in the breastmilk.
According to Dr. Benson, Braxton’s reflux, as well as Tai’s reflux and heartburn during pregnancy, are associated with EDS. Because of her heartburn, she reportedly took “bottles” of antacids. Most physicians see no harm in mother’s taking them for their symptoms. However, in our coverage of stories of babies who have been medically kidnapped with brittle bone type conditions, Health Impact News has seen multiple medical reports in the mothers of these babies citing high consumption of Tums type antacids. Medical expert and radiologist Dr. David Ayoub [8] has this to say about Tums and other antacid tablets:
While generally considered safe, calcium carbonate was actually the active ingredient given to rats during research studies in the 1920s-1950s to produce rickets in the mice! Crazy but true—TUMS’ active ingredient (calcium carbonate) is a rickets-causing chemical due to its phosphate-binding properties (calcium carbonate is even used in dialysis patients to bind phosphate).

Are American Academy of Pediatrics Child Abuse Policies Leading to Medical Kidnappings?

Though the American Academy of Pediatrics cites “multiple unexplained fractures” as indicating abuse, they also indicate conditions as rickets, osteogenesis imperfecta, EDS, and metabolic bone disease. Braxton’s Vitamin D25 levels were abnormally low, at a level of 14. Levels this low are often associated with infantile rickets. Several medical experts have examined Braxton’s medical records and x-rays, and have identified infantile rickets. The Vitamin D deficiency, together with the antacid consumption, can account for another finding in Braxton’s records – inadequate mineralization.
Medical expert Dr. Marvin Miller evaluated Braxton’s x-rays and CT scan performed by Greenville Hospital on December 31, 2014, and concluded that his skull showed marked signs of inadequate mineralization of his bones.

Though healing rib fractures were noted by several experts in the x-rays, there was no organ damage or bruising to his chest – things that would be expected if the rib fractures were caused by abuse.
Unfortunately, the American Academy of Pediatrics has a policy that does not appear to take into account that children may have valid medical conditions, such as rickets, which account for rib fractures. In one policy paper, here [10], AAP states that “rib fractures are highly suggestive of child abuse.”
Braxton’s ribs show flared ends which, according to Dr. Benson is “compelling evidence of a metabolic bone disease,” not abuse.
Dr. Crosswell was consistent with AAP policy that states that classical metaphyseal lesions (CMLs) found in the x-rays are a high indicator of abuse. However, Drs. Ayoub, Miller, and Hyman have stated that CMLs are actually indicators of metabolic bone disease. Many doctors believe CMLs to be fractures; however, when these lesions are examined microscopically, there is no associated hemorrhaging. Instead of being fractures, they are believed to be stages of healing of metabolic bone disease. According to Dr. Benson:
Recent study [has] demonstrated that the opinions of the past that “metaphyseal lesions” are “fractures” – which are an indication of child abuse – are unsupportable.
Further, Dr. Benson states that doctors often confuse healing of traumatic fractures with the body’s metabolic repair of inadequate mineralization.
It is not difficult to differentiate if one is familiar with traumatic fractures as well as metabolic bone disorders.
However, as many families are finding out, the doctors they encounter at many Childrens Hospitals are affiliated with Child Abuse Specialists, who specialize in finding child abuse, but who are not well versed in metabolic bone disorders or other physiological explanations for their babies’ conditions. The jump-to diagnosis is often child abuse, in accordance with AAP policies, and tests to differentiate or find other causes are often not performed.
For Braxton, his grandmother says that, once Dr. Crosswell said it was child abuse, the doctors stopped looking for any other possible cause for his symptoms, neglecting care for his real medical conditions.

Former Social Worker: Threat of Lawsuits and Loss of Grant Money Influences CPS and Doctors

A former social worker from South Carolina, who asked to remain anonymous, recently contacted Health Impact News to explain why doctors like Dr. Crosswell stop looking for other explanations once they have decided that a case is child abuse, and it’s a case of “follow the money.”
Many doctors, including Child Abuse Specialists, receive grants for their research. Millions of dollars are up for grabs. Whenever a case comes in to the hospital that the specialists can write up as child abuse, they can use that to get more grant money. However, if a doctor states that a case is child abuse, but later recants that diagnosis based on medical findings, they run the risk of lawsuits, and lawsuits on the record impact a doctor’s ability to obtain grant funding.
Rather than admit that the evidence shows a different picture than they originally thought, the grant money and their reputation influences the child abuse specialists to “stick with” an evaluation of child abuse, even if medical testing clearly shows a different explanation.
In many Medical Kidnap cases, CPS and the courts hinder parents from getting additional tests. Parents have to fight hard, and even then, some are still forbidden to get testing done for their children. Sometimes, the Child Abuse Specialists or even CPS call other doctors that the family plan to take the children to, and suddenly, mysteriously, the new doctor will no longer agree to see the child, or their evaluation changes.

Cleared of Criminal Charges, but Still Don’t Get Children Back

Fortunately, Braxton’s grandmother was not prevented from getting him evaluated outside of the Greenville system. Those results have cleared Tai and Shawn in the criminal court system, where they had faced the possibility of 35 years in prison.
However, DSS still has control of their family. Tai still wants to get her babies back, but DSS is allegedly fighting her every step of the way. The whole traumatic ordeal has led to Tai and Shawn divorcing, a sad, but all too common result of Child Protective Services involvement in a family.
Tai passed the psychological evaluation that DSS made her take, and all of her required drug tests came back clean. She lost her job making sure that she got to every parenting class that DSS required, and made 100% on the test. Yet, just as many other parents report, no matter how many hoops she jumps through, it is never enough.
In a bizarre twist, DSS has accused Tai of being negligent because her son was Vitamin D deficient.
Just before Christmas, Tai felt bullied into agreeing to a DSS settlement that would remove her name from the child abuse registry. Her family had just hired a new attorney, who asked Judge Alvin Johnson for a continuance. That was denied.
Her former attorney allegedly failed to prepare for the hearing and left her defenseless, even though there was plenty of evidence showing that she had not abused her son. She tentatively agreed to the conditions of the deal, telling the judge, “Yes, sir, at this time.” Yet, Misty reports that when her daughter, who is almost 22, got the papers in the mail to sign, the documents did not at all reflect what was in court. The things that are written on paper are things that Tai said she would never agree to. She has not signed them.
In that hearing, DSS in Pickens County, SC, awarded permanent custody of Braxton to his grandparents, Misty and her husband. Bentley’s paternal grandparents now have permanent custody of him.

How You Can Help

Misty says that she wants her daughter to have “a chance to have a decent hearing and actually be represented.” A Facebook page has been set up to support the family called Justice for Braxton [12].

American Judicial System for Sale: Bribes and Corruption now the Norm

A man ascending the steps at the entrance to the US Supreme Court in Washington DC.
Health Impact News Editor Comments
Since Health Impact News started reporting on medical kidnappings taking place in the United States, we have briefly touched upon the topic of corrupt judges and the courts that allow this to happen. See:

Who is Trying to Silence Filmmaker and Judicial Watchdog Bill Windsor, Currently Held in County Jail? [3]

I recently was privileged to have a conversation with one of the top American legal minds of our day and age, Dr. Richard I. Fine, who lost his career and was unjustly put in prison for 18 months as a political prisoner. He was never even charged with a crime.
His story is not widely known, and it gives the public an insider perspective to the depth of the corruption in the American judiciary.
Health Impact News investigative reporter John P. Thomas recently interviewed Dr. Fine, and his report is below. Dr. Fine’s message is a message every American needs to know.

Dr. Richard Fine’s Experience with Corrupt Judges in California

by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News
There have been many articles published on the websites of Health Impact News and Medical Kidnap which mention judicial corruption. In this article, we take an in-depth look at one man’s attempt to expose judicial corruption, and the destruction of his legal career that followed. It destroys the myth that judges are always people of integrity who seek a fair outcome for those who appear in their courtrooms.
To be fair, there are still some genuinely honest people who work in the courts. However, the presence of good people is being overshadowed by those who routinely misuse the authority that has been given to them for personal gain. Corrupt judges do not identify conflicts of interest and do not step aside from cases where their personal connections might cause them to give an unfair judgement. Corrupt judges provide advantages to those who have given them money and power, while they disregard the rights of those who seek justice for acts of wrongdoing perpetrated against them.

A ten year battle with judicial corruption cost Dr. Richard I. Fine his freedom and his license to practice law. He was not punished because he did wrong, but he was attacked because he did the right thing.
The right thing was to expose the paying of illegal money to Los Angeles County judges and other California Superior Court judges after he learned about the practice in 1999. The right thing was to use his extensive legal training and experience to confront the pattern of corruption in the California judiciary and to do battle with the system that was corrupting judicial integrity.
California Superior Court judges in Los Angeles County began to receive large amounts of money from the county every year starting in 1985. In recent years, the annual payment made to each judge was in excess of $57,000. These annual payments were in addition to the regular salary paid to the judges by the state of California. Los Angeles County officials claimed that the purpose for the payments was to attract and retain high quality people to work as judges. However, another purpose – an illegal purpose – has been revealed. [1]
Dr. Fine showed that these payments were illegal, and fostered judicial corruption among Los Angeles County judges. The payments did not attract and retain judges, rather, they became a source of corruption. A very different word can now be used to describe the intent of these payments. [2]

Judges and Court Decisions Affected by Bribe Money

As will be explained by Dr. Fine, these payments can be called bribe money, because the decisions made by these judges followed a very predictable pattern, which benefited Los Angeles County. In cases involving the county of Los Angeles, the county almost always won the cases brought before these judges. This pattern of decision making is evidence that the payments to judges were functioning as bribes.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Fine at the end of 2015. He was the first attorney to challenge the system of judicial corruption in California and the first to expose it to public view. He told me how the judges conspired to attack him and bring him down once he started to reveal the corruption.
Los Angeles judges denied him the payment of fees for work he had done. They imprisoned him for 18 months. They took his law license. Even after it was proven that corruption did in fact exist, and he did nothing wrong by exposing it, the California Supreme Court still refused to restore his license.
But before I get into more details about the betrayal of trust that Dr. Fine experienced, I want to introduce you to this remarkable man.

Dr. Richard Fine is a Man of Persistence and Courage

I spoke with Dr. Richard I. Fine, Ph.D.; JD, on December 29, 2015. The information in this article came from this conversation and from his presentations and interviews that have been archived on the internet.
Dr. Fine is a recognized leader in exposing governmental and judicial corruption. He is working hard to create a more just global society by providing expertise on issues relating to abuses of power, governance, international and comparative law, human rights and litigation oversight. Professionally, he is now working as a Strategic Consultant, and a Certified Mediator. He is the Chairman and Founder of the Campaign for Judicial Integrity, a grassroots movement dedicated to ending judicial corruption, reforming the judicial system and restoring our constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial. He also is the Co-Chairperson of the Judicial Reform Committee of DivorceCorp.
The educational background of Dr. Richard I. Fine is extensive. He earned a Ph.D. in Law with a specialty in International Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science (1967). He earned a Doctor of Law (JD) degree from the University of Chicago Law School (1964). After completing his Ph.D. he obtained a Certificate of Public International Law and a Certificate of Private International Law from the Hague Academy of International Law, a Certificate of Comparative Law from the International University of Comparative Science in Luxembourg, and obtained a Higher Diploma of Comparative Law from the International Faculty for the Teaching of Comparative Law, Strasbourg, France.
Dr. Fine pursued a wide range of studies in college. His major was psychology. He had a heavy emphasis in pre-med courses and actually took more courses in economics than in his major. He also accumulated credits toward a master’s degree in labor.
The combination of his education and professional training gave him an unusually broad view of how the legal system, the political system, and the personal ambition and self-interest of leaders come together to shape the systems that manage life in our society.
Dr. Fine described himself. He stated:
I am a broad thinker. Lawyers aren’t that. Many weren’t that even when I was practicing law, because so many lawyers began developing into the specialties. Lawyers look to solve the problem within the confines of their expertise and that doesn’t necessarily solve the problem. [3]

Dr. Fine’s Outstanding Legal Career

Dr. Fine was a member of the state bar association in at least one state from 1964 through 2011. Early in his career, he worked in the U.S. Department of Justice, Anti-Trust Division. He was the founder and chief of the first municipal anti-trust division in the United States for the Los Angeles City attorney’s office. In 1974 he founded the law offices of Richard I. Fine and associates.
A few highlights of his career include: the indicting and prosecuting of General Motors and Ford for price fixing, the Investigation of the Pulp Paper and Newsprint International Cartel for international price fixing, and the representation of the Department of Justice in its first appearance before the Tariff Commission, which later became the International Trade Commission. He litigated the case of IAM versus OPEC, which was the case against OPEC nations for manipulating U.S. gas prices. He changed the way United Way functions by requiring it to allow donors to designate the charities where their donations would go. He forced local governments in California to return a billion dollars of illegally used funds to California taxpayers. He closed down the California State Government and required it to have authorization before paying anyone including the Governor, state legislators, and judges. The action he took against the State of California in 1998 regarding its spending practices ended 26 years of political budget crises.
Dr. Fine received various certificates of special recognition such as the California State Assembly Certificate of recognition, and was honored as the lawyer of the decade and champion of court reform.
From the abbreviated list of accomplishments and honors mentioned above, it is clear that Dr. Fine was, and continues to be, an outstanding advocate for justice in America.

His Ordeal Began when He Sued Los Angeles County for Wrongdoing

In 1999 Dr. Fine sued the county of Los Angeles three times. The first suit challenged the county’s diversion of 250 million dollars of transportation monies to solve a problem in its hospital system. The second case involved the diversion of 45 million dollars of fees paid to the county. The fees were designated for environmental purposes, but were being diverted to the county’s general fund. The third case involved 14 million dollars of child support payments that were being illegally held by the district attorney and which were not being paid to women and children.
Dr. Fine won these cases, and the county suddenly had a 314 million dollar budget hole to fill, because they couldn’t use these funds as they had planned.
According to Dr. Fine,
The county was now on the hook for 314 million dollars. They wanted to do something, and what was that something going to be? That something was, to use the judges they were paying to go against me. [4]

Responding to Judicial Corruption Lands Dr. Fine in Jail Without Even a Warrant

Supreme Court Justice Also Questions the Legality of Payments to Judges
Dr. Fine’s life unexpectedly began to change on September 15, 2000, when he read a quotation in the Metropolitan News from Ronald M. George, the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court. Justice George had spoken to judges attending the annual Meeting of the California Judges Association. Dr. Fine explained that Justice George told the judges that he thought the payments to judges were wrong and maybe unconstitutional. It was through this newspaper article that Dr. Fine found out about the existence of payments made to judges by the counties, and began to consider the implications.
Dr. Fine Takes Action that Leads to Incarceration
Dr. Fine didn’t ignore the matter, but began to challenge judges in court regarding the illegal payments they were receiving from Los Angeles County. He described what happened when he began to shine the light of the law on the corrupt judiciary. He stated:
The judges, because of their insulated situation, just got so angry that they went out into full retaliation. I didn’t know this literally until 2012 when it came out that they had admitted: they had a “visceral hatred” against me; they wanted “revenge against me;” they wanted to “silence me;” they wanted to “take me out of circulation;” and they knew every courtroom that I was in – “they followed me.” [5]
Dr. Fine explained to me that he began to expose the judicial corruption in 2000. The retaliation against him went on for more than a decade. He learned what the judges had been doing when Alan Parachini, the former public information officer for the Los Angeles Superior Court, revealed the secret plans of the judges to Leslie Dutton of Full Disclosure Network in 2012. [6]
Alan Parachini explained that the retaliation against Dr. Fine was “for his exposing and keeping the judicial benefits [illegal payments] issue before the courts and legislature. Parachini also admitted that these were the reasons that LA Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe ordered the illegal coercive, solitary incarceration of Fine in the LA County Jail and kept him there for 18 months.” [7]
CNN Interviewed Dr. Richard Fine while he was in jail:

Dr. Fine’s Career was Destroyed – California Bar and State Legislature Protected the Corrupt Judges Instead

The final step in the retaliation plan to take down Dr. Fine commenced in 2006 with a California State Bar complaint secretly instigated by the judges. The State Bar ordered him “involuntarily inactive” in 2007 and recommended disbarment in 2008.
However, before the recommendation became final, the California Court of Appeal vindicated Dr. Fine’s position regarding illegal payments to judges.
The appellate court found in the case of Sturgeon versus the County of Los Angeles that the county’s payments to the judges were illegal and violated Article 6, Section 19 of the California Constitution.
Dr. Fine explained that in response to the decision in the Sturgeon case, the judges prevailed upon the California Legislature to pass SBX2 11. This legislation gave the judges, the counties, county supervisors and government employees “retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution, civil liability and disciplinary action for having taken payments or having paid judges with county or court funds prior to July 1, 2008. Furthermore, it allowed current judges to continue receiving the illegal payments at the option of the counties.
Dr. Fine provides additional explanation about SBX2 11. He stated:
You know what this means? The legislature has now said that these payments by the counties and the courts are criminal, because they are giving them retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution. This is unheard of. In fact, literally, when you look at the history of the world, there are very few countries that have done this. You have Libya under Kaddafi, Egypt under Mubarak, Tunisia, some South American countries, South Africa under apartheid, and some of the death squads. California stands with that small group of totalitarian nations that has wiped out the rights of its people and has given immunity from criminal prosecution to criminals on a wholesale level. Those criminals are the members of the California judiciary who have accepted these payments.
I am going to take this a step further. SBX2 11 required the California Judicial Council to come up with a report on these payments. That report came out in 2009 to the state legislators. That report said that 90% of the judges in California receive these illegal payments. [Dr. Fine repeated the point for emphasis] An official report has now confirmed that 90% of the judges in California have received criminal payments – effectively tagging them as criminals. That report also said that 20 counties gave these criminal payments to these 90% of judges and 34 courts gave these payments.
The report said how much the payments were worth (pages D9-D12) in the appendix of this report. Basically, the payments were 33 million dollars per year as of the year 2007-2008 — 30 million by the counties and 3 million by the courts. The last thing that we saw for Los Angeles County — LA County is giving 25 million dollars per year.
From 1985 through the present, it is estimated that LA County alone has paid out over 350 million dollars in illegal payments. This is the largest judicial scandal in American history. [8]
In short, the California legislature provided immunity for the wrongdoing that took place over several decades, and enabled the counties to legally keep on paying money to judges in the future. Even though these payments were associated with a pattern in which judges rarely ruled against the county of Los Angeles, the payments were allowed to continue.

An Even Bigger Picture of Corruption is Revealed in LA County

Dr. Fine describes an even larger picture of corruption. It involved real estate developers, county officials, and the court. He explains how the money and influence flowed. He stated:
By 2008 and 2009 I had exposed the money trail from developers to the LA County Supervisors, who then would vote illegally on the developer’s programs – from the LA County Supervisors to the judges who then decide the cases in favor of LA County. So, we have the total line of the money trail. [9]
Dr. Fine used the reports from Los Angeles County to prove his point regarding corrupt decision making by judges. He stated:
The LA County council files annual litigation reports. The annual litigation reports at that time for the fiscal years 2005-2006 through 2007-2009 [shows] that of all the cases filed against LA County, only 3 cases were won by a person suing LA County when a LA County judge made the decision. On an average, 650 to 850 cases per year were filed against LA County. The percentage is unbelievable!
Now these cases also affect not only regular cases against LA County – this affects every family law case – this affects child custody cases – this affects child support cases – this affects criminal cases – eminent domain cases – zoning cases – literally every case that is existing in the court is affected by these payments. [10]
Dr. Fine described the contents of a letter dated November 10, 1988, which was sent from the legal counsel of Los Angeles County to the Clerk Executive Officer for the Los Angeles Court. The letter admitted that they knew the payments to the judges were illegal. Dr. Fine stated:
It was shown that the County admitted that Article 6 section 19 [showed] that the judges were not employees of LA County and that the judges and the county knew that these payments were illegal. In fact, they said that the payments were being made to attract and retain qualified people to serve in LA County.
Now here is where the farce begins. You can’t attract a judge to serve who is already sitting. And you can’t retain a judge to serve that has to run for re-election. So, you know at this point in time that the payments are a fraud. [11]

Dr. Fine Vindicated but not Restored

Despite the admission of wrong doing by the California legislature and the vindication in the Sturgeon case, the California Supreme Court denied Dr. Fine’s request for a review of his disbarment, and ordered him disbarred in 2009.
In 2011, the State Bar admitted in court papers that the real reason Fine was disbarred was for bringing lawsuits against the judges for taking illegal payments from counties, which was not part of the charges in the disbarment complaint or proceedings.
Subsequently, Dr. Fine made three motions in the California Supreme Court to remove the wrongful disbarment. Even though the State Bar did not oppose these motions, the California Supreme Court still refused to remove the wrongful disbarment and kept in place the fraudulent actions of corrupt judges.

Dr. Fine Still Cannot Practice Law – Call to Action

So, here the matter rests for the moment. At the beginning of 2016, Dr. Fine still does not have his license to practice law. He is working as a strategic consultant and mediator, while continuing to advocate for judicial reform.
As a strategic consultant, Dr. Fine assists attorneys and clients in developing winning strategies for their legal cases. Dr. Fine explains:
I get called in by people who have lawyers. They will call and say, look we have a problem and what do we do about the problem. Lawyers think in tunnel vision. A family lawyer thinks only in terms of family law. They don’t think in terms of solving the overall problem.
I get called into situations where the lawyers have said, ‘We will take this case if you get Richard to do the strategic consulting, because this is beyond our expertise. This requires looking at the big picture and we don’t know what the big picture is.’ [12]
Dr. Fine continues to be a national leader in the effort to reveal judicial corruption. He encourages citizens to speak out about the abuse of judicial power, and to call for independent oversight to stop the abuse of that power.
The professional conduct of judges is governed by state laws and professional codes of conduct, but these rules are not being enforced by anyone sitting in an oversight capacity. No one is judging the judges.
Dr. Fine commented on the overall need for judicial reform by putting it into the context of a civil rights movement. He stated:
I classify this as the continuation of the ongoing civil rights movement that started in 1776 – [it] continued in 1789 with the drafting of our constitution, and has been ongoing throughout the history of the United States.
What happens every once in a while in that people get lulled into a place of complacency. However, when others attempt to establish totalitarianism and remove our liberties and our rights – the people of the United States tend to wake up. So, this is not a new civil rights movement – this is just the reawakening of that movement that has always existed in this country. [13]
According to the estimates of Dr. Fine, approximately thirty of California’s fifty-eight counties are still giving money to Superior Court judges, which is in addition to their normal state compensation. This means that 80% to 90% of the Superior Court judges who have worked in California in the last ten years have received illegal money. Additionally, the same percentages apply to appellate justices, who received illegal county payments while they were Superior Court judges. They all have retroactive immunity.
I asked Dr. Fine if he had any prospect of having his law license restored. He stated:
I don’t know. I don’t know if the Supreme Court would do this on its own motion, which I doubt. I think the hatred is still so great that I don’t think they are going to come up with the idea themselves. Maybe if all your readers write into the California Supreme Court and say, you know it is about time that you do something — then something might happen. [14]
