11-07-02 Request Filed with the US Congress for Impeachment of Judge George A O’Tool and Clerk Sarah Allison Thornton, US District Court, Massachusetts // La corrupción de los tribunales en los EE.UU. // 法院的腐败在美国
Corruption of the courts in the United States has reached the level of a constitutional crisis, the like of which has not been seen since the Civil War. The People are deprived of life, liberty, and property with no due process of law. The United States Congress should perform its duties.
Los Angeles, July 2 – request was filed with the US Congress for impeachment of US Judge George A O’Tool and Clerk Sarah Allison Thornton, both of the US District Court, District of Massachusetts. [[i]] The request was forwarded to Congressman Bachus, Chair of the House Rules Committee, Senator Leahy, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Congressman Smith, Chair of the House Judiciary Committee.
The request pertained to conduct of Judge O’Tool and Clerk Thornton in litigation of McGarry v Geriatric Facilities of Cape Code, Inc et al (1:10-cv-11343). Laura McGarry, a disabled nurse, filed complaint pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, in effort to protect her rights. Dr Zernik provided the US Congress with evidence that Judge O’Tool, Clerk Thornton, attorneys for defendant (Jackson Lewis, LLP), and others subjected Ms McGarry to simulated litigation. The court published online records, which the court itself deemed void, but Ms McGarry was lead to believe were valid court minutes, orders, and authentication records. [[ii]]
The request alleged that conduct of US Judge O’Tool and Clerk Thornton amounted to various violations of the US law, including, but not limited to: Denial of Access to the Courts; Deprivation of Rights under the Color of Law; Adulteration of court records; Fraud on the court, and/or Racketeering.
The conduct, documented in the request for impeachment of O’Tool and Thornton, has also been documented in other US courts from coast to coast. [[iii]] It is enabled through large-scale fraud in PACER and CM/ECF, the electronic record systems of the US courts. [[iv]] The beneficiaries are financial institutions, large corporations, and government officials, while individuals are deprived of their rights.
Accordingly, Dr Zernik has repeatedly asked that the US Congress initiate corrective actions to safeguard the integrity of the electronic records of the US courts.
Dr Zernik claims that corruption of the US courts is a central cause of the current financial crisis, which is often overlooked. “It undermines any prospect of effective banking regulation,” he says.
“Corruption of the courts has reached the level of a constitutional crisis, the like of which has not been seen since the Civil War,” says Dr Zernik, “The People are deprived of life, liberty, and property with no due process of law.” [[v]]
Copies of the request were also forwarded to United Nations Human Rights Council.
