Making criminals out of non criminals, our lovely friends at the Washington State Bar

UPDATE: The WASHINGTON STATE BAR HAS REFUSED COMMENT AS OF TODAY, APRIL 9, 2015; ONCE THEY DO WE WILL POST THEIR COMMENTS WITHOUT CENSORSHIP


To the Editor of the Skagit Valley Herald and to the good people of Skagit County:

 

 

 

This is the letter that will never be printed in the Skagit Valley Herald.  The Herald has written its story.  It was not the story that I would have written of course.  It is not even close to the story I would have written, but it is the story you, the citizens of Skagit County read on its pages.

 

Here is my letter to the Editor of the Skagit Valley Herald:

 

 

Not at any time have I been personally contacted before you published any of your stories regarding me and no one from your paper was in the courtroom the only time I have spoken.  I gave my story in an allocution statement.  It is on the record.  Reporting partial accounts or only what is handed to you as the full story gives the public a false impression.  Investigating matters appears to be no one’s strong suit.  Not the Skagit Valley Herald, not the Mount Vernon Police and not the WSBA.  All of which have a duty to investigate before acting.  By far a more compelling story would be why your newspaper was given this particular story and why you & I were given no exculpatory information that was clearly available to all of the investigating parties yet went unreported.   

 

I KNOW that I may hold my head high because I know that unlike some I have always dealt squarely and forthrightly in my dealings with other lawyers as well as members of the bench and of the public.  In doing so I stepped on toes.  I called it like I saw it and when I heard untruths I called a few liars, the was especially prevalent in Skagit County’s Ex-Parte Court.  When I saw repeatedly, guardianships being filed by the same people, lawyers who are & were tenant’s of the hospital lawyer, and as a creditor the hospital filing guardianships that gave preferential treatment to the hospital lawyer’s tenants and specifically requesting that his wife be appointed by the Court as the Guardian ad Litem, I spoke out.   

 

When that same Court appointed GAL did an extremely poor job, I spoke to her privately requesting that she specifically contact a health provider about the cancellation   of a much needed wheelchair for the alleged incapacitated person.  This GAL very flippantly told me not to tell her how to do her job and that her investigation was complete.  Even though I had just informed her that the woman’s care center had contacted me and needed this device to care for her properly.  At the time the only oversight was the Court.  Because of the GAL’s refusal to make this single telephone call a woman was left without support of a much needed medical device until her death.  

 

The GAL’s job is to investigate and make recommendations to the Court.  In refusing to investigate this necessary medical device’s cancellation she failed in her duty.

 

In zealously representing my client as well as being a mandatory reporter, I was required by law to point out this GAL’s errors and the only place to report it to was the Skagit Valley Probate Court.  After which I was threatened by the GAL’s husband, the  hospital lawyer, a now sitting member of the WSBA Board of Governors, who between clenched teeth told me “You’ll be sorry for this Rosemary”  after I did what was required of me by law to do.  Report the abuse of an elder in jeopardy.  By pointing out the gross failure of duty by the Court appointed GAL in her inept investigation the full abuse of the power and authority of the Washington State Bar Association disciplinary system was focused upon me for nearly ten years.  

 

To this day I stand by my assessment.  Now that very same GAL/wife, who did the worse report I read in over twenty years of practice, is in charge of overseeing complaints against GAL’s in three counties.  THREE COUNTIES!  Her own reports were questionable, yet now she is in charge of overseeing all GALs.  How does that happen?  Connections?  They know who they are.  They know what they have done.  

 

I’ve never filed a phony bar complaint.  

 

I’ve never gone behind anyone’s back by claiming to give NOTICE when I hadn’t.  I’ve never began a lawsuit against someone and failed to serve them to get a default judgment against them.  I’ve never had a default judgment entered when I knew the person was nearby and obviously could be served easily if service was attempted.  I’ve always gone straight to the person and I’ve always given others the opportunity to be heard.  

 

I’ve never given false testimony or had illegal Ex-Parte Orders entered.  

 

Twice I’ve had issues with an order.  The first time I had a problem with an order it came concurrent with a racially inspired conflict over an incident involving one of the co-director’s pushing and slapping my then ten year old son at play practice.  My son was acting in a local theatre company’s version of Peter Pan.  When my son who very much enjoyed acting and being chosen for a part told me he did not want to return to practice I discovered what had happened and personally went to the Director to specifically find out what led to the incident witnessed by a number of actors.  At the time this person apologized profusely and responded with all the politically correct sentiments but my son and I never felt welcomed again by that particular theatre group and for good reason, from then on we were hazed repeatedly by members of the cast and crew, invited and uninvited to cast parties, and I was 86’ed from backstage even though the job I had signed up to do from the beginning was to be the back stage gofer.  Not all of the cast but a good deal of you jumped on that band wagon.  You know who you are and you know what you did, and we know it too.

 

This Director and been appointed fairly recently as a Court Commission and it was his clerk who caused the problem with the order.  I clearly heard this man’s clerk tell me he had signed the order I had left earlier when ex-parte was overflowing.  I came back in the early afternoon, at which time I was told that the Commissioner had signed the oder .  When I asked for the original the clerk told me she had filed it in the Probate box at the Court Clerk’s office.  I conformed my copies and sent out the order to a local bank for action to be taken.  Late afternoon my office received a call from the Court Clerk indicating we had an order to be picked up.  This is when I discovered the order had not been signed and I immediately called and notified all parties.   At the time I was told it was an honest mistake.  Instead it became courthouse gossip.  Gossip over whether I had properly apologized to this Commissioner’s Clerk (who had told me that he had signed an order that had not in fact been signed.)  It amazed me because of the obvious distortions of the story to cover the backside of the person at the court.  They didn’t think I’d hear what was being said, and what was being said was far from the truth.  Instead she chose to lie and repeat that lie to anyone who would listen to her tale.  A lie that placed my reputation for honesty in question.  

 

The second incident came when this same Commissioner who had abused my son, and who had either instructed his clerk to say he had signed an order or whose clerk didn’t bother to ask him and then assumed he would sign it and told me he did so she did not have to say she hadn’t presented it to him, who knows; but this same Commissioner in another guardianship matter failed to ask what a “qualified plan” was when I presented to him that this guardianship was only necessary to distribute a single qualified plan.  Instead this decision maker pretended to know what one was when I specifically asked if he understood the taxing consequences of withdrawing funds from a qualified planned.  Had he simply admitted to not knowing the consequences of taxing qualified plans much of my later ordeal would have been avoided, but if there is one thing that most lawyers will never do – is admit that they are ignorant.

 

Courthouse gossip, like any untrue statements spread distrust of people and situations.  

 

We all are human so we all make mistakes.  Lawyers don’t like to be wrong.  Neither do Judges or those with the authority of Judges, like Commissioners.  

 

I have found that honestly pointing out these things to some in authority causes you great harm.  This I do not believe should be happening in our courts.  Honest, hardworking people should be able to get to the truth without our elected officials egos getting involved.  Without their perceptions, rather than the facts, being the reason for their actions or inaction.  As officers of the Court we are to rise above the pettiness, but when big egos get bruised they tend to retaliate in ways that they find available.  Often that is at another’s expense.  Retaliation at my expense has been very far reaching.  Thinking that by bringing someone else down they will regain what they perceive they have lost, or at least puff them up again has no place in our Courts and needs to be rooted out by voters.  It is my hope that the voters of Skagit County heed the call.  

 

Gossip is one of the tools bruised egos use to get their revenge and gossip is rampant in the Skagit County Court, and likely with many other courts as well.  However, when the powers that be allow courthouse gossip to flourish then everyone should be very aware that what they are doing can harm good honest hard working people.  Lying to cover up your own mistakes is just wrong, but doing it and then talking about people knowingly to put them in their place is maliciously passive aggressive, to knowingly harm another just  isn’t decent.  You know who you are.  You know what you have said and done.

 

Notice is a necessity under the law.  It is not at anyone’s discretion.  Entering default orders to force criminal proceedings where you know there was no criminal act is not only disgraceful but unconscionable by the bench.  Giving Notice to the Pioneer Board but not to me was an abuse of the power of your position and it is morally reprehensible that you would use your position to harm me because your ego got bruised when you butted into a guardianship matter that had never come before you.  Together you and the Commissioner conspired, assuming wrongdoing.  You were proven wrong in your perception.  You were given an opportunity to be heard and instead you conspired together to get me and you did.  It wasn’t enough to ruin my reputation, no that wasn’t enough for some of you.   So I’m gone.  I’m in jail.  You’ve made me appear to be what you are protecting.  There will be others to come after me who will not break under your bullying.  Others who are stronger than I am but like me will not compromise their principles or integrity just to avoid the wrath of a two-faced back stabbing witch.  There are other’s who won’t play the status quo ball either.  They are coming.  The good people of Skagit County need to know that there are honest, hardworking lawyers zealously representing them and making decisions, but that there are unconscionable, cold hearted, public employee parasites like you who should not be re-elected ever again due to your unethical use of the law and your blatant disregard for notice before you strike.  You cannot pretend to uphold the integrity of the legal system if you are one of the main problems.  You know who you are and you know what you have done.  Where is that story?  

 

Signing arrest warrants without probable cause after being asked for nearly twenty years to recuse yourself from all matters regarding me is obviously bias. Then ordering search warrants after the plea just proves the police had nothing, there was no probable cause for any criminal complaint, just a regurgitation of WSBA’s partial investigation, (because all exculpatory information was withheld by the very same WSBA that refuses subpoenas while asking for me to waive my confidentiality instead; then when I do so they claim their own confidentiality in my file.  Tell me, does the WSBA have confidentiality when it is a self governing body?  I know that the bar’s Executive Director Paula Littlewood never once used the word “transparency” when answering one of UW’s first year law student’s question as to what exactly does self governing mean.  

Obviously, self governing means never having to be accountable for the WSBA’s own errors, investigations, misrepresentations and Statements of Concern.)    

 

But, getting back to the point raised above, You sir, the Judge who signed my arrest warrant, you are a liar and always have been since I first dealt with you on a 1994 Estate. You know who you are and it does not surprise me that while sitting on the bench you think everyone before you is a liar, because you were a liar before the bench.  It is unfortunate that the people of Skagit County who vote have not seen your real side as I have.  Let’s hope you never run unopposed again for re-election. 

 

But then, you lied about my brother too, didn’t you.  You recanted your statement but only after he had been disbarred.  

 

Then there is another ex-parte liar who used your same allocations against my brother almost word for word against me in that previously mentioned matter where the Commissioner’s clerk told me an order had been signed.  First this Sheriff’s daughter admitted that it was an honest mistake, in writing.  Yet then she takes my brother’s complaint almost word for word and has her client file a phony bar complaint against me believing no doubt that I would be disbarred too.   Did your client tell you that he was investigated by APS, I wonder?  You think that because I called you out in ex-parte for lying to the Court that you should harm me?  You were the liar.  Not me.  You and your client who I reported because I am a mandatory reporter of abuse to elders in jeopardy.  You who the court appoints as guardian yet you barely do your job, but always proactively collect your fee.  You aren’t fooling me.  There’s no doubt you can fool the WSBA , you have friends in high places.

 

I complained because a GAL wasn’t doing her job, but she was never investigated by the WSBA, I was.  Why, because she encouraged the complaint and I relied upon the WSBA to do their job investigating the matter.  Often I was told by the bar investigator that if  anything, ANYTHING BY ANYONE,  was found to be an action for disciplinary proceedings it would be thoroughly investigated and the party would be disciplined, yet this derelict wife of a WSBA crony was never investigated.  So how is the bar protecting the integrity of the judicial system?  I informed them and gave them the information which is in the Skagit Court files, but the WSBA never got the files.  Instead, the WSBA let one of the people I specifically told my investigator about be a bar custodian of papers and complaints.  Yes, someone specifically pointed out as conspiring to harm another lawyer by making false statements and by withholding information was put in charge of disciplinary files as custodian in the years my case was being heard.  Was that because the WSBA ignores some complaints that should be investigated while dismissing others who provide favors or is it because the WSBA also fails to adequately investigate and is therefore derelict in its duty to us all?  It certainly isn’t protecting the integrity of the system as it’s mission statement implies.

 

On another note, the attorney witness for the prosecution testifying to excessive fees certainly is the pot calling the kettle black when one of you knowingly testified my fees were excessive after you charged over sixty thousand dollars in less than six months on a referral I gave to your old firm.  When I called to discuss it with you I was told you were no longer with the firm but had opened your own firm which I called and was told you were on vacation in Italy.  Bearing false witness is a sin.  Being a graduate of a number of Catholic Schools* you know that too.  You know you are the true crook and you testified against me out of spite.  Shame, shame on you, here’s to Dante’s Inferno not being fiction.

 

Just because lengthy probates with exorbitant fees is the way Skagit County has always done it doesn’t mean it is the way it should be done.  I taught people they could do living trusts and avoid probate.  This empowered the people and took their private family matters out of a mandatory court setting.  That is what the Trust, once executed, says to do and is the law everywhere but apparently Skagit County.  

 

Here instead of following what is written in the four corners of the trust document being the law, we have one ridiculous Judge who instead of using mediation as it is intended, goes around the trust to hire every beneficiary a mediator who is also a lawyer which defeats the purpose of the trust, stole from multiple charitable beneficiaries and is a violation and an abuse of the system.

 

Judges who make these type of decisions instead of honoring the four corners of the document are taking away the avoidance of probate designed in the revocable living trust and leaving the parties in the probate court where they never intended to be.  People beware.  This is happening here in Skagit County and it is only making some lawyers more wealthy and stealing from your estates.  

 

I was the messenger, I tried to warn the powers that be and discovered that some of the powers that be like the way things have always been done.  The people they socialize with reap the benefits. Under TEDRA this Judge appoints a mediator to replace every lawyer and takes these trusts through probate.  That is wrong.  They know it is wrong and they are doing it anyway.

 

Know that if you have a revocable living trust that upon your death it becomes irrevocable and anyone who wants to go to court IS CONTESTING the basic nature and  autonomy of that trust.  Don’t fall for anyone telling you that they are just clarifying the document or language and talk you into taking your trust to Court under TEDRA; you are being deceived by your lawyer and by anyone sitting on the bench who signs such an order.

 

You know who you are.  I named you in my allocution.  Its only time before you will be seen for what you are and people will see what you have done.  You haven’t won, this is to be continued for the sake of all the residents of Skagit County and all the creators of trust documents.    

 

I know what you have done, and are doing.  It is time the people of Skagit County know who you are and what you are doing.  

 

Anyone else may think what they like, however, I would ask the people who have met me and dealt with me personally as well as those who worked with me and who used my services if what they have read in the newspapers, what was given to the newspapers by the WSBA and certain other sources about  what has transpired involving me with & in the courts; – Does this at all go with your idea of the person that YOU know me to be?  The person who once had a stellar reputation, the one who sat across from you, spoke with you, counseled you, went to school with or picked strawberries or dug bulbs or waited tables with?  

 

If it doesn’t then ask yourself,  WHY?.   There is a story here and it isn’t me.

 

Respectfully, 

 

Rosemary Kamb

*Just to clarify to all you good Catholics in Skagit Valley.  The Arch Diocese of Seattle is running a Bank.  Your Catholic School Endowment was established to keep school funds out of the hands of the Arch Diocese in Seattle and here locally.  Over the past thirty years the Arch Diocese has done what it could to access the school’s endowment by controlling the funds.  This was never the intent of the Endowment.  The law suit filed against me by the lawyers of the Arch Diocese who made all kinds of nefarious & unethical allegations against me was heard in Federal Court and all of the allegations were by a preponderance of the evidence were found to be unfounded, but that did not stop any of you from believing the original lies and it cost the school payments on a convertible contract at a much higher interest rate than what the Arch Diocese was willing to give the school.  The Arch D has a conflict of interest with the school and forwarded their own agenda which cost the school dearly.  Whether you believe it or not.  The proof is in the baptismal font.  But for true guilty feelings over her false actions, frivolous lawsuit and likely the impending fear of all good Catholics, that of burning in hell; there would be no new baptismal font in Mount Vernon’s new church.  Omissions of truth are lies just the same and your money cannot wash away the origin you’re cowardice and lies have caused.   YOU know who you are and you know what you have done, and the rest of you don’t know the facts, but  certainly that hasn’t stopped anyone from talking and gossiping and drawing conclusions however inaccurate these may be.

See http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=240270&sid=55E6&ext=PDF&lcl=block-v-WSBA-RICO.pdf&usr=SkyValleyNews&doc=294503385&key=key-GqDGvN4pGjxOWy5LnziT


COMES NOW Appellant ALAN F. HALL, by and through ALAN F. HALL, Pro Se and submits this Pro Se brief pursuant to the Supreme Court’s Sui Generis Jurisdiction.

My name is Alan F. Hall. I am the Petitioner in the captioned matter. I am also a lawyer who has been practicing law in Washington State since 1974. I am 70 years old.

The first 25 years of my practice centered in litigation. As a litigator I have approximately 40 trials to my credit. Most of those trials occurred in King County Superior Court and Snohomish County Superior Court. The cases in those courts of general jurisdiction were before juries. I also have four reported cases at the appellate level the most notable of which established the current ruling on landlord/tenant law in Washington State. (Muci v. Graoch)

As a litigator in Washington State’s Superior Courts I experienced the importance of court rules, how they apply to both sides of a case and the consequences of when a participant does not follow those rules. A litigator can do damage to himself, his client and our system of jurisprudence without strict compliance.

I respected this system very much and found I could successfully operate within it.

Then, around 2002, I was confronted with a grievance against me   and I became intimate with the Washington Rules of Professional Conduct and the rules relating to lawyer discipline. That is not to say I was not familiar with them before this event. It is that a grievance makes you want to reexamine them. I also reviewed the oath I took upon being admitted to the practice of law.

I did a little more digging on these issues and found that the Washington State Supreme Court is the branch of our State government that is responsible for enforcing the Rules of Professional Conduct, Rules of Enforcement of Lawyer Conduct and indirectly our oath as attorneys. Those rules were created by the Supreme Court pursuant to legislative authority from another branch of our government, the Washington State Legislature.

I also learned that the scheme of jurisdictional procedure that the Supreme Court imposes on the discipline of lawyers is called Sui Generis. Black’s Law Dictionary (1968 edition) defines Sui Generis: “Of its own kind or class, i.e., the only one of its own kind, peculiar.”

At this stage of my quest to learn more about the process of disciplining lawyers in Washington state, I felt comfortable with the system. After all, doctors are regulated; dentists are regulated, as are the police.

But then an interesting thing happened. I learned how the Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC), the enforcement arm of the Supreme Court, defines sui generis and I did not like it. If fact I found it frightening as a threat to our democracy, disingenuous, unfair and likely to promote a cadre of minions capable of staffing potential governmental enforcement agencies capable of doing great harm to our democracy.

Respectfully, the history of enforcement agencies is replete with similar phenomenon of Sui Generis at various stages of development that compare with the stage of development that our Sui Generis system is now in. One has to look no further than pre WW II Germany. If you want to see how a fifth stage Sui Generis system operates watch the Movie Sophie Scholl one of the most famous members of the German World War II anti Nazi resistance movement, The White Rose. Pay close attention to how the lawyers behave in that movie.

Very harsh words, but they are carefully chosen particularly after my substantial observations stemming from two Washington State Bar Association ODC hearings on grievances filed against me. In fact I would say the referenced post 1933 Weimar Republic Germany model only differs from the Washington State’s Supreme Court’s Sui Generis system in that the Washington State’s Sui Generis system does not allow for torture and execution. Yet.

I make these bold statements on observed verifiable and well documented facts.

The first hearing in which I was involved the Grievant was represented by her personal attorney Elizabeth Turner Smith. The problem was that Ms. Smith was either applying for employment with the ODC or working for the ODC at the same time she was representing the Grievant. I learned about this half way through the hearing and did not know what to make of it at the time. Then I thought about it after the fact and believed it to be a clear violation of the appearance of fairness doctrine and the RPCs relating to conflict of interest and candor to the Court. If Ms. Smith was applying for a job with the ODC, then how could she possibly make impartial decisions relating to her client?

It occurred to me she was using her representation of the grievant as part of her job application with the ODC. And the ODC was condoning her violation of rules relating to conflict of interest. She should have told the hearing officer of her status with the ODC.

I also learned that my insurance company would mediate the claim the grievant had but that if I pled guilty to the grievance I would lose coverage. So the Bar Association offered to mediate this case but Ms. Smith refused. Was she acting in the best interest of her client or was she continuing her job application?

I was found to have violated the rule relating to diligence. And in fact my diligence had cost my client $10,000. An honest mistake that I would have admitted to if I would not lose coverage. I was paying approximately $500 per month for coverage. I maintained coverage for my entire career. So, instead of settling this case, Ms. Smith choose to go thru three days of hearing with her client, use the resources of the Bar Association and waste my time.

My response to this was to file a complaint against Ms. Smith. She replied on Bar Association letter head. You can guess how that turned out.

I claimed she had violated the RPC rule requiring ODC lawyers to act in good faith. At one time there was a rule that stated ODC lawyers had to act in good faith. I learned that the ODC had that language removed from the rule without any hearing.

That event caused me great stress to think that a State Supreme Court authorized agency could violate their own rules like that and get away with it. Further it appears they can modify the RPC rules to suit their own behavior without a hearing.

One positive was that I began to learn what the Office of Defense Counsel’s definition of Sui Generis was.

But there was more.

A grievance was filed against me in 2010. The ODC sat on the issues for about 5 months. I called and asked for my files back. They had asked for the original documents when the grievance was filed and, in writing, promised to return them upon request.

I called up and asked for the files back and was told by Francesca D’Angelo, an attorney with the ODC, that I would be lucky if I got a copy of them back. At this point I had been paying dues into this organization for approximately 38 years. I expected more professionalism.

And so the definition of Sui Generis starts to flesh out.

The grievance that was filed against me is the subject of the captioned petition. By that point both of my clients had passed away and, interestingly, the ODC never statementized them.

During the first hearing I began to get an in depth observation of the ODC Sui Generis.

  1. The ODC has access to volunteer lawyers. I did not.
  2. The ODC has access to volunteer experts. I did not.
  3. I requested the hearing officer to allow me access to the volunteer experts so that I could find an expert. Denied.
  4. The Hearing Officer on oral spontaneous motion grated ODC’s motion to prevent any of my testimony of my relationship with the grievant based on the dead man’s statute. This was overturned in the second hearing.
  5. I tried to hire counsel. They all wanted $350 per hour. I could not afford that.
  6. Randolph Petgrave was the Hearing Officer. He should have recused himself because his father and I were friends from college. I asked him to do this in the first trial. He refused.            In fact, Mr. Petgrave the elder coincidently was nominated to be the hearing officer in my first grievance. He recused himself.

Whatever Petgrave the younger is, he is not a jurist.

  1. The ODC has institutional knowledge as to the proclivity of the hearing officers. Are they plaintiff oriented or defense oriented? This is vitally important information. Lawyers do not have access to that information.

The whole sui generis thing was turning into a farce.

I learned that I could have a lawyer appointed for me if I could not represent myself. As that point what choice did I have?

Even then Sui Generis gets more farcical.

At the second hearing I had counsel. He was intimately tied to the Bar Association. In fact as far as I know the Bar Association is his only source of income

  1. My lawyer tells me that the volunteer expert for the state is lawyer Barbara Isenhower. He further tells me that her husband is John Strait an ethics professor at one of the local law schools. I also learn that Barbara and her ethics professor husband want to use my case, assuming I am found guilty, in Mr. Strait’s ethics class.
  2. The Will and the Trust agreement admitted into evidence name Nancy Caputo, the grievant’s niece as contingent beneficiary of an estate worth about $400,000. It also comes out that the client’s ex-wife, Linda Orf, the one who files the grievance, through the help of Jamie Clausen ends up with every penny of the estate pursuant to Jamie Clausen’s legal work. Ms. Clausen names herself as Trust Protector which is exactly what she claims I did in my documents.
  3. Jamie Clausen testifies. But there is no testimony from Lind Orf, or any affidavits from the clients. In fact the grievance is not even entered into evidence. That is because it was filed by Linda Orf.
  4. The Hearing Officer finds that my testimony is not credible even though the ODC never put my credibility in issue.
  5. ER Rule 608 governs the procedure for attacking credibility. It was not followed by the ODC or the Hearing Officer. In fact the highly respected research tool BING responds vary favorably to the query: “How to impeach witness’s credibility before an administrative agency?” The internet tome on impeaching credibility is found in

E-How and the article is “How to Challenge Witness Credibility before MSPB.” Therein lies the step by step process for impeaching credibility before any agency including the ODC. Again Mr. Petgrave’s reasoning is unsupported by any legally recognized rule relating to this issue.

In a word what I observed was a genetic mutation in the fabric of our democracy, our judicial system and our constitution. The Washington State Supreme Court’s Sui Generis system has the potential to spread into a very destructive cancer and apoptosis is in order.

Conclusion:

There is a very compelling saying: “Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.” Sui Generis as it is practiced by the Washington State Bar Association should be removed. But that is not enough.

Lawyers must organize. The police have a guild, why can’t lawyers? Right now they have the highest rate of suicides amongst any profession. They are easy targets for any malcontent client and of course sole practitioners are the low hanging fruit of choice for the ODC. Further, lawyers are losing ground in the fields that they can practice in.

As I mentioned I am 70 years old. I do not want to get suspended or disbarred. Yet at my age what the hell difference does it make?

What I am most concerned about is our democracy. I am equally concerned about the younger lawyers. In fact I think they have a good cause of action against their so called ethics professors for not teaching Sui Generis in law schools. I suspect if potential law students were told about Sui Generis they would not want to even go to law school.

I wouldn’t.

I request that you think about it. Imagine yourself as a beginning lawyer, you are married and maybe have a child or two. Then you are confronted by Sui Generis. If you are reprimanded your reputation is ruined forever. It is just too easy for the ODC to win and bully you into submission.

Finally, it is noted I am on non-disciplinary suspension and have been for approximately three years even though the ODC stipulated I could continue to practice during the course of this Sui Generis process.

As soon as I went on non-disciplinary suspension the Bar Association stripped me of my Bar membership without any hearing. I no longer had access to the Bar News or research facilities that I had paid dues for 38 years to support. This greatly hindered my effort to do research and keep up on lawyer news that might have been helpful to my case.

Because of all this I believe that there should be an innocence project. I suggest that any lawyer either living or dead who as ever been admonished, reprimanded of disbarred have their case reviewed. If they were not afforded adequate representation or were subject to abuses spelled out herein, then the decision should be reversed.

One final observation: The ODC lawyer handling the opposition to my appeal, Scott Busby, continues to mislead the tribunal. He claims I was being paid to $2,000 per quarter to administer a Trust with only $49.00 dollars in it. This is totally false and misleading. All one has to do is read the Trust to find out what my very substantial duties were.

RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED THIS        day of _______ 2014.

Today we are pleased to announce to the public release of a 110 page RICO statement that defines a RICO conspiracy that centers around public officials in Gold Bar Washington and the Washington State Bar Association. These documents were filed in a federal case that was filed in the United States District Court, Western District of Washington Case No. 2:14-cv-00235-RAJ. The complaint documents the greatest assault on freedom of the press in the history of the United States.

Anne Block has achieved a degree of notoriety in Snohomish County as the only reporter in the state to break a story involving corruption at the highest levels of government in Snohomish county. Chief Executive Reardan was…

“Meet the cockroaches”

Lets start with the Washington State Bar and its hearing officers who have been cited by courts for stealing from their clients ( yes you are reading this right!), and refusing to process grievances.

Attorney Lin ( aka Linda Worthington) O’Dell, is a thief who shacked up with a convicted killer named Mark Plivelich.  Plivelich was convicted of an execution style murder in Spokane back in 1988.

According to our sources, Lin O’Dell takes convicted killer Mark Plivelich with her when visiting clients.  For our readers, why this should be concerning is because the majority of Lin O’Dell’s clients are elderly (over 70) or have or had substance abuse issues.  Taking a convicted killer along on trips to clients homes leaves us to ask this question: why, what’s the purpose?’

For Washington State Bar members, this should be of concern  to you because O’Dell breaches client’s confidentiality on a daily basis.

Attorney Lin O’Dell is also a hearing officer for the Washington State Bar Association, in charge of lawyer discipline.

Our question is do other attorney who fight back or object to O’Dell’s stealing client’s assets and monies have something to worry about?   We believe they do.

We researched over the 566 disbarred attorneys in Washington State, and we discovered these facts:

1.)  49 % of all disbarred Washington attorneys come from Snohomish County.

2.)  33 % of all disbarred Washington attorneys come from Spokane County.

3.)  12 % of all disbarred Washington attorneys come from King County.

4.)   6 % of all Washington disbarred attorneys come from Thurston, Grant, Skamania, and Pierce Counties.

Our readers should know that that King County, Washington, is the most populated District in Washington State, but yet it has the lowest disbarment ratio in Washington State.

Remember the old saying ” there must be something in the water out here in Gold Bar?”   Well, we were wrong, there must be something inside the water in Snohomish County.  With 49 % of all dibarred attorneys in Washington coming from one county, we smell a scandal, and it involves Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine and Geoffrey Gibbs ( who will be discussed in detail in the near future).

Getting back to convicted murderer, Mark Plivelich.  As our readers can imagine we were disgusted to learn a few months ago that a killer works with the elderly, so we called the Washington State Elder Abuse line asking this question “Can a man convicted of murder work inside a nursing, substance or retirement center?”  The assistant Washington Attorney General said “Absolutely NO!”

This brings us to who knew Lin O”Dell was stealing from her elderly clients, and why is a Washington State Bar hearing officer bringing  a convicted killer to her clients homes?

We talked with ten Snohomish and Spokane County residents, and each laughed saying ” the only reason to bring a convicted killer to a client’s home is if  your trying to intimidate and threaten clients. ”   B-I-N-G-O !

As is such the case with a woman named Paula Fowler.  Our readers should know that Ms. Fowler is from Idaho. This was of interest to us because attorney Lin O’Dell is NOT a licensed Idaho attorney.  But yet, legal papers we reviewed ( and submitted with a Bar complaint) document that Lin O’Dell signed and affirmed under the seal of Idaho stating that  she was providing ” legal representation at legal rates.”

Lin O’Dell funneled Ms Fowler through a substance abuse center, owned by one of her conspirators named David Martin
After seeing this my notes state ” Holly Cow, the scum bag is practicing law in Idaho without a license! Who the fuck does she think she is Crystal Hill?”

My first thought was: ” Why is attorney Lin O’Dell so fixed on Paula Fowler, a non-Washington resident?”    After reading the pleading in various cases, it was clear to me that Lin O’Dell’s onlyy interest in Paula Fowler is that her parents left her a fortune, 2.2 Million dollars.

In a nutshell, Washington State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell is stealing from her clients. But we need proof., and thank you Judge Monasmith for providing that to us last week when you cited Lin O’Dell as a theif in Stevens County Superior Court.

Unfortunately, Judge Monasmith’s order came to late to save over $500,000.00 of Ms. Fowler’s trust that O’Dell and killer boyfriend Mark Plivelich stole before Judge Monasmith ordered her REMOVED as Ms. Fowler’s guardian.

With disgrace to the legal professionals in Washington State this was not the first time Ms. Fowler sought protection from thoe WAashington State Bar members in charge of discipline.

In May 2013, Paula Fowler filed a Washington State Bar complaint against attorney Lin O’Dell stating that Lin O’ Dell was using a substance center in Idaho to funnel clients, depleted her trust accounts, refusing to provide any accounting on her estate worth $2,000,000.00, and Lin O’Dell was in fact ( and still is) abusing Ms. Fowler.

In one case that was quite disturbing, Lin O’Dell canceled a emergency dental appointment  M.s Fowler had a for a root canal.  Anyone who has ever had an abcesed tooth knows that it can be life threatening if not treated.

Lin O’Dell’s withholding of a rtrust client’s root canal services came upon the heels of Ms. O’Dell’s convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivelich “bragging” to a friend of Ms. Fowler’s that he would own her house soon.

Based on Plivelich’s statement to Ms. Fowler’s friend we believe that Washington State Bar hearing officer and attorney Lin O’Dell is trying to kill Ms. Fowler so that she can continue stealing her trust account still worth over $ 2,000,000.00.

YES YOUR ARE READING THIS RIGHT! Based on the totality of the evidence we reviewed, including interviews, we have ample reason to believe that not only is attorney Lin O’Dell stealing from several of her clients, but in the case of Ms. Fowler, Lin  O’Dell is trying to kill her.
Instead of the Washington Bar investigating Ms. Fowler’s Bar complaint, our stellar Bar member  Felice Congalton did what she does any time a citizen files a Bar complaint against a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer,  Congalton forwarded Ms. Fowler’s complaint to Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.

Over the last few months, we know beyond any reasonable doubt that Linda Eide is nothing more than a political plant for the Democratic Party.  We also know that because of Linda Eide, we are no longer members of the Democratic Party.

Late this year, we joined the Coffee Party, and the first demand we made was to add Dunkin Donuts coffee  as the officla cofee of the Coffee Partty.

We hear that Gold Bar’s current Mayor Linda ” High as a fuckin Kite” Loen wanted to add marijuana coffee to the agenda, but we oppose this concept because many of the Coffee Party members are under the age of 21.  So sorry Linda, you’ll have to keep smoking that shit on the back steps of City Hall until we can change public opinion the concept that ” it’s a just weed, you dumb shit religious Republican but jobs!”

But please know Linda ” high as a fuckin kite” Loen that we’re with you 100 % on this one.

Back to understanding why certain people matter in this story,  you have to know how and where they are connected:

Linda Eide is first generation relative to Washington State Senator Tracey Eide. Linda Eide’s position as lead counsel for the Washington State Bar also guarantees that shysters like attorney Lin O’Dell can continue abusing our elderly and  person who struggle with drug addictions  with almost no oversight, except for lead counsel Linda Eide.

Linda Eide is always the attorney of choice the Washington State Bar funnells pulbic complaints to when ever a person complains about a Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Hearing Officer.

We reviewed over 50 cases involving Linda Eide and we discovered that same or similar conduct as state herein.  We tried contacting Ms. Eide to no avail, so her comments are not included.

Ms. Eide’s actions are consistent regardless of what victim complained about a Washington State Bar hearing officer.  If anyone dares to fight back, reocrds confirm that  the attorney is either disbarred or suspended. Eide never picks on prosecutors or lawyers inside all large law firms, only solo practitioners. 94 % of all disbarred attorneys in Washington State are solo practitioners, while the remaining suspend lawyer are ones who hired friends of Ms. Eide’s to defend against her fraudulent and illegal charges.  We rightfully call Ms. Eide a RICO thug.
Now onto the person who started the ball rolling on our investigation, Senator Tracey Eide.  Tracey Eide is married to D. Mark Eide, a King County Superior Court Judge.

Judge Eide was good friends with the Federal Court Judge Richard Jones. Richard Jones is also the judge who refused to recuse himself from Block v. Snohomish County, at el. filed on February 18, 2014.

What makes this interesting is that Judge Jones recused himself from the Ryggs  which basically involved the same RICO scums from Snohomish County, with the exception of the RICO scums from Gold Bar. Judge Jones will be diuscussed after we’re done removing him from the civl rights case now pending in US Federal Court.

How and why Senator Tracey Eide got involved in the Snohomish County debacle was best described by a Snohmish County insider who said “John Pennington and Tracey Edie were friends from the Washington State legislature.  Senator Eide is also a friend to Sen. Steve Hobbs of Lake Stevens. Whom she also served in the State with. ”

Our source is correct, and we know ithat on January 13, 2013, Senator Tracey Eide, Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon, Senator Steve Hobbs, and convicted criminal harasser Kevin “ Thomas” Hulten were having meetings inside Reardon’s office in January 2013.

Our readers should know that Senator Eide’s is not from our District; she lives in Federal Way.

So why would Senator Eide be present in criminal Aaron Reardon’s Office when she has nothing to do with Snohomish County?  Simply put, its called Racketeer-Influence and Corrupt Organization ~ R.I.C.O.

Senator Eide has NO business in Snohomish County: she could try saying that she was working with piece of shit Sen. Steve Hobbs, Reardon, & Kevin ” I enjoy taking Ipone pictures of my cock on Snohomish County cell phones ” Hulten on a state project.  BONG!   Nope, if so, any and all meetings would have taken place in Olympia.

We searched and sifted through over 1 Million public records and discovered that John Pennington had a file that he deleted within one week after we requested  ” all records sent between and among Senator Tracey Eide and John Pennington.”  The metadata speaks for itself. so we know beyond any doubt that pedophile John Pennington destryed public records.

Within three months of  Senator Tracey Eide’s meetings with the criminlas inside Snohomish County Exectuve Office, Senator Eide’s realtive and Washington State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide was the person of choise for pedophile John Pennington to file over 32 complaints with against Gold Bar activist Anne Block.

Since Pennington was not a client he had no legal standing to file a single WA Bar complaint.  In fact the only legal standing mandates that all persons in Washington be left alone in their proivate affairs, WA State Const. Art !, Sec 7.  But Linda Eide could care less about rules, laws, due process, and ten cases we looked at that involved her illegal RICO conduct, it’s clear that she believes herself to be above the law.  Dont worry cause John Scannell’s doing a wodnerful job in the 9th Ciircuit helping shine some sun light on that skank.

Out readers should not worry, because we also have a legal surprise for Linda Lou Lou coming soon; we do not like green egggs and ham , little Ms. Lou Lou. No green toast, no green tea, just flea for you.  Linda Lou Lou, miss Whoville, and failed to grow a brain.   Her victims will be testifying against her.

Let’s not leave out Spokane attorney Joseph Nappi Jr. Mr. Nappi receives his paycheck from Ewing and Anderson ( please remember the name of this firm because its the probate law firm of choice for theif and Washington State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell nad James Spurgetis).

Joseph Nappi Jr (Chief WA Bar Hearing Officer) uses his political influence to have Lin O’Dell appointed to the WSBA Disciplinary Hearing Board, on company time ( Ewing and Anderson).

Nappi and O’Dell work together, almost like piggy backing or for those who like wrestling, ” tag teaming.”   Rules of Professional Conduct prohibit a Chief Hearing Officer from any kind of business relationships, unless you’re Joe Nappi Jr.

Nappi and O”Dell “tag team”  on many  shady and questionable and out right illegal trustee/guardianship cases together.  With no surprise to our readers, almost all of their associates files court cases have been destroyed by Order of one Spokane County Commissioner named Gorvdahl.

Good old Commssioner Gorvdahl, he just can’t seem to keep himself out of the spoit light.   In 2012, the Seatlte Times did a feature story about this same Commissioner destroying files for his friends who hold guardian postitions, all whome enjoy depleting and stealing from their clients. And not without the assistance of Joespeh Nappi Jr.

We notified Bob Fergussion with our findings, so we will hold off judgement for a month before posting our opinion on what side of the fence he sits on, but we will either post ” Fergusoon is a criminal too” or Bob Fergusson, a man who charges attorneys who steal client monies and abuses our elderly away behind bar where they belong! ”

Our hope is that when Lin O’Dell and Linda Eide get old, someone steals their money they way they are stealing others.

This brings us back to the man who KILLED 44 residents in Oso, Washington, John Pennington gets his cushy job from Aaron Reardon, a job he was not qualified for as evidenced by the deaths of innocent people in Oso. They are still working closely with Senators Eide & Hobbs, they bring on people like Kevin Hulten, & former reporter Christopher Schwartzen to do some damage control & then turn Snohomish County into their own personal Sodom & Gamorrah. Hobbs stays in the sidelines calling the shots along with Senators Eide, Zarelli & Hatfield. It was a brilliant plan, their Golden Boy Reardon was on his way to the Governor’s mansion & everyone would get their cut of the political pie except they underestimated a woman they chose to make an enemy of.

Pennington used his criminal influence with Senator Eide to file 32 Bar Complaints against the Gold Bar Reporter, but then Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay threw a few more Bar complaints in misuing taxpayers monies and opening himself up to be sued personally ( coming soon) under Our Surpeme Court’s holding in Butz and Kalina .

NOW COMES, David Martin. Mr. Martin’s job is simple.  He funnels clients to Washington State Bar’s stellar hearing officer and attorney Lin O’Dell via a substance abuse clinic in Cor de alene Idaho.  Then killer Plivelich funnels clients to Lin O’Dell and another Washington State Bar hearing officer named James Spurgetis through two retirement homes in the Spokane area.  With no surprise both O’ Dell and Spurgetis are Washington State Bar office of Disciplinary hearing officers.

Gee we wonder why and who picked Spurgetis and o’Dell?  This brings us back to shining a hell of lot of sun light on the cockroach Joseph Nappi Jr.
The Washington State Bar also finds themselves in an akward postion because they never in their wildest drams have ever had anyone who challenges their crimnal RICO activities the way Block has an will continue to for the next 30 years,

As the old saying goes ” never underestimate your opponent”.
No one just “quits” the bar,  calls them Nazi fucks that they are, tells them to go pound sand and stick their license where the sun should never shine.  At least until now.
A few months ago, we also learned that killer Mark Plivelich set up a US Post Office Box in Duvall Washington to communicate with John and Crystal Hill Pennington. Based one witness statement, we feel confident to state that John and Crystal Hill Pennington used Plivelich’s Post Office box for pay off drops.

Our investigation of Mark Plivelich confirmed that in the last fifty years ( minus the time he spent in prison for executing a man), Plivelich has never had any business dealings outside of Spokane at least not until his theif girlfriend and Washington State Bar’s Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell was personally assigned by Chief (also a thief, an issue we’ll get to in the near future), Joseph Nappi Jr.

One more layer of the rotten onion with more to come.

‘ In the eye of the storm we uncover one layer of the rotten onion”

OnionThe Gold Bar Reporters are first to report on Washington State corruption. This time its pretty juicy stuff and its involves several Spokane attorneys linked to stealing, elder abuse, fraud and WA State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell and her partner Mark Plivelich. Mark Plivelich is a man convicted of murder in 1988.

As we correctly reported last week, the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel is in this shit pretty deep.  Specifically, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide, Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr., and Washington Bar Hearing Officers Lin O’Dell ( who also used an alias of Lin Worthington) and James Spurgetis.

Here’s why we began investigating the WA State Bar for corruption.

In April 2013, and after the Snohomish County Daily Herald uncovered part of the story about Executive Aaron Reardon,  Kevin Thomas Hulten, and Jon Rudicil were criminally harassing Anne Block on the county’s lucrative welfare system, Anne Block filed a 10M tort claim upon Snohomish County on April 22, 2013.  In her tort claim, Block noted that Gary Haackenson, former Deputy Director, turned over Kevin Hulten’s files on his desk directly linking Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers and John E. Pennington to criminally harassing private citizen and county reporter Anne Block.

John E. Pennington was no stranger to Anne Block.  Block has been investigating John Pennington for four years  after public records from King County ( Redmond) District confirmed that John Pennington had a prior conviction for criminal harassment and had violently assaulted his pregnant wife Ann. Police reports from the City of Duvall (WA) confirm that John Pennington kicked and punched his pregnant wife in uteral area just three weeks prior to her delivery.   Pennington was charged with criminal assault, his guns were removed from his home in Duvall and he lost his Homeland Security Clearance.

In May 2013, and within one month of County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King receiving that tort claim, Reay and King began writing a series of 32 WA Bar complaints against Block.  WA State’s Constitution prohibits the use of public resources and funds for private use.   John E. Pennington was never a client of Block’s only a political appointee who Block had been investigating for five years.

What we wont discuss here is a future RICO suit that its in the works against Reay, Hulten, Beavers, Eide, O’Dell, Nappi, Reardon, Hill, King, Kenyon, and Pennington. The purpose of this blog is to outline how we uncovered one of the largest corruption scandals in Washington State’s history and how the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel is involved or as we correctly reported ” In the eye of the storm there sits a rotten onion.”

Onion

So here’s a layer of the rotten onion we uncovered over the last six months. It all began after being criminally harassed by John Pennington, Crystal Hill,  Kevin Hulten, Aaron Reardon  and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers on a county controlled blog spot titled The Sky Valley Chronicle,  reporter Anne Block began requesting public records from the Washington State Bar’s counsel Kristian Schimpff.  Instead of Ms. Schimpff answering public records requests ( as mandated under new WA State Supreme Court rules), Ms. Schimpff did what most cockroaches do when the light goes on, she obstructed access to our records.

Knowing that Snohomish County was involved in criminally harassing Anne Block, we requested records from various agencies all over the stat. our request sought “ all records sent between and among any agency employees or contractors and the WA State Bar.” What we got back from King County flipped the light switch, and resulted in the first series of many more investigative reports to follow.

In 2013, a Seattle Police Officer hired to screen visitors to the King County Court house located on 2nd Ave in Seattle “ Tripped” an attorney named Kathryn Abele. Ms. Abele is a large abrasive woman who towers over most men. She weighs over 255 pounds, she is approximately 6 ‘ 4 ‘ and she is severally hearing impaired. According to Ms. Abele she is often verbally harassed by government officials as she enters the court house. One day as she entered to the courthouse for a hearing, a Seattle Police Officer tripped her. Ms. Abele rightfully exercised her constitutional rights to file a criminal complaint against the officer, but instead of investigating Ms. Abele’s criminal complaint the Seattle Police Department decided the best way to deal with Ms. Abele’s criminal complaint was to solicit the assistance of WA State Bar’s investigator Vanessa Norman.

From email communication retrieved from King County, we know that Vanessa Norman solicited at least fifty Seattle Police Officers to file WA Bar complaints against Ms. Abele. From emails it’s clear that the Seattle PD did exactly what Ms. Norman requested of them, like they had been through this before – a pattern exposed. Emails going back and force look more like a porn movie than that of law enforcement or ethical attorneys. In one case, an officer appeared to be having an organism over soliciting other Seattle officers to file complaints against Ms. Abele as well.

The emails were an eye opener, and certainly one layer of the rotten onion, but it wasn’t the big clincher. The clincher was the emails between and among Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, the WA State Bar, and the Seattle PD conspiring to harm solo practitioner Kathryn Abele.

What’s transpired as a result of a citizen filing a police report should not have happened. Snohomish County Prosecutor Dave Hayes assisted the WA State Bar in violating Ms. Abele’s civil rights. Hayes illegally used public resources to spy on Ms. Abele all in effort to assist the WA Bar State to go after poor attorney Kathryn Abele for exercising her constitutional right to file a police report.

As our readers can imagine, we were curious to know what really transpired so we made some phone calls including a phone call to Kathryn Abele. Ms. Abele’s first words to us were “ I did not lie. That Seattle police officer tripped me.” Our response was simple: “We’ve seen enough email communication to state that we believe you 100%, because we’ve seen the email communication between the WA State Bar, King and Snohomish County to know who the liars are.”

After talking to Ms. Abele, we decided to make a public records request for all records turned over to the WA State Bar as a result of their complaints against Ms. Abele. King County turned over 5 videos of a police officer tripping Kathryn Abele.   And of course we turned copies over to Ms. Abele. According to Abele the WA State Bar did not turn over 2 of the five videos during her discovery request. The two videos that the WA State Bar counsel Collin Farrell and Sachia Powell withheld exonerated Ms. Abele. From videos four and five it’s clear that the Seattle Police Officer did in fact trip her.

With no surprise, the cockroaches from the WA State Bar, Ms. Sachia Powell, Vanessa Norman, and Mr. Colin Fallin   were contacted for comment both refused. But since we are open government supporters, we decided to shine a little light on the cockroaches who decided to violate Ms. Abele’s civil rights.

But that night around 3 AM I woke up from a good dream thinking “ what if the WA State Bar actively solicits complaints in this same fashion from other government agencies and its employees?” And what we got back from various agencies suggests that our suspicions that the WA State Bar is running a racketeering for profit organization are “right on target.”

Once Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block had reason to believe that the WA State Bar was guilty of racketeering, and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s phone records and City of Gold Bar’s law firm’s attorney bills were involved as members of their Enterprise, Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block  “disassociated” with the WA State Bar by refusing to renew her license in 2014.

At the time, Block wanted to know why the WA State Bar would involve themselves in the pile of shit Snohomish County and the City of Gold Bar created by hiding records, but after an initial search, we found the golden egg, emails between WA State Bar lead counsel and John E. Pennington. The emails were sent from John Pennington to WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide suggesting an extramarital affair between the conspirators.  We later learned that WA Bar Linda Eide is the sister-in-law to Senator Tracey Eide, a good friend to John Pennington. This probably explains why Linda Eide and John Pennington’s emails suggest that a close personal relationship exists because it does.

Block hired private investigators to dig deeper. What they uncovered about John Pennington was not surprising. Mr. Pennington’s criminal conduct includes but by no way is limited to these facts: John Pennington is one of two prime suspects in the rape of 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, WA; he plead guilty to hospitalizing his ex-fiancé () Ms. Becker) in Oregon in the early 90s; he fled the State of California after two boys from church in San Diego claimed that Pennington had sexually abused them; Pennington created fake companies in Santa Cruz California, Pennington falsified his time sheets in Snohomish County; Pennington created a company titled JOHN E. PENNINGTON to avoid paying WA DOR taxes on; police reports from the City of Duvall, Washington, document that Mr. Pennington has major anger management issues; and the best for last, declarations from King County confirm that Pennington ( age 40 at the time) took inappropriate showers with his six year old child. According to King County court records, John Pennington was caught exiting the shower with his six year child while his penis was eye level with the victim/child.

At the time Block thought “ why would the WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide put her career on the line to violate the civil rights of a member for issues that the WA Bar has no legal jurisdiction over such as protected First Amendment protected activity?”   What we uncovered is best illustrated as a uncovering layers of a rotten onion.

Onion

This post is just a part of many series to come on this subject.  Here’s what we discovered after investigating the following WA State Bar employees Linda Eide, Joseph Nappi Jr., Lin O’Dell, and James Spurgetis. All of the coconspirators were contacted for comment but all refused.

Linda Eide and John Pennington knew one another well. Linda Eide is the sister-in-law to one of John Pennington and Senator Steve Hobbs’s closest Olympian allies, Senator Tracy Eide. Senator Eide is not from Snohomish County but public records confirm that she was a frequent visitor to disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon. How we know this is simple: emails received via Washington State’s Public Records Act confirm that on January 13, 2013, Senator Tracy Eide ( who is not from our District) was having meetings with convicted criminal harasser Kevin Thomas Hulten, Senator Steve Hobbs and disgraced Executive Aaron Reardon.

One month later, two reporters from the Snohomish County Daily Herald exposed part of the story. Why they did not finish the story is best described by one of the reporters for this reason “ the county is fucked.”   We agree. Had the Daily Herald actually reported on what was inside King County’ Major Crimes files as it relates to Snohomish County’s posting on the county employees’ blog spot the “Sky Valley Chronicle” the county would have collapsed. But we say “ so what. The only way to clean up this shit is to expose it; let the sun shine and let it shine with a dam flood light.”

So this brings us to what we learned about the WA State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide, Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell, and Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. “ Little RICO gang.” Hearing Officer James Spurgestis’s conduct will be exposed in the very near future, but his conduct certainly ties back to Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr.

We’d like our readers to know that we tried countless time to contact Linda Eide, Joseph Nappi Jr., and Lin O’Dell to no avail. Ms. O’Dell’s boyfriend Mark Plivelich’s shady shit which includes WA State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell will be discussed at length.

Lin O’Dell is a nurse with extensive ties to Spokane Washington. According to O’Dell Linked In page, she never really practiced law.  See Lin O’Dell _ LinkedIn

It’s our understanding that to be a WA State Bar hearing officer one must have been engaged in the practice of law for ten years prior to appointment. Lin O’Dell appears to be the exception. What we do know is O’Dell is personal friend of Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr.

O’Dell’s Linked In page clearly documents that she is not qualified to litigate a dog bite case let alone grievances filed against bar members. This begs to question: who picked her and why?

That answer came last week from one of our records request sent to the WA State Bar. Emails between the WA Bar and the Law Firm of Ewing and Anderson in Spokane confirmed that Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. handpicked Lin O’ Dell as the hearing officer. In fact, Joseph Nappi used the law firms computers and resources to further the efforts of their Enterprise. We suspect this was a big mistake for Mr. Nappi’s law firm, but won’t address that issue at this point.

I suspect by now our 6,000 readers would like to know how Joseph Nappi Jr. fits into all of this. Well its simple!

untitled

Lin O’Dell and her partner Mark Plivelich’s property records search shows a real pattern of misconduct and fraud.

One example taken from Spokane County property records show the duo enjoys purchasing homes from hearing officer Lin O’Dell’s terminally ill clients. O’Dell serves as their guardian, depletes their trust accounts, leaves the client penniless and then her and Mark Plivelich purchase the terminally ill clients’ homes. In one Spokane County record, O’Dell purchased one of her client’s homes for $15,000 even though the property was valued at $208,000.00.   We have been in contact with the family members, and will be posting a separate blog with their statements very soon.

This is just a taste of what we found as it relates to Lin O’Dell.   Since Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. practices in Spokane probate, and since he handpicked Lin O’Dell  and James Spurgestis from Spokane, our readers can make your own assumptions about what his involvement is. But we are investigating Mr. Nappi’s involvement by cross referencing his cases. As for Lin O’Dell cases; Washington taxpayers can be assured that we are cross referencing every client she has. Our findings as of today, suggest that her convicted killer boyfriend and Lin O’Dell are involved in a lot of shady shit. Shady shit we intend to shine a heck of a lot of sun shine on, so stay tuned  for more of  ” As the cockroaches scatter, part II.”

“ We promise is going to be good, kind of like how many licks does it take to get to the center of tootsie roll pop? “   Our favorite is the chocolate one, and we count 44.

‘Inside the eye of the storm there sits a rotten onion”

Onion

While most people sit and watch Sunday football, I continue to peel back the thick and moldy layers of the rotten Onion. An rotten onion that sits in Snohomish County, Washington.

With each layer I peel, I see our founding fathers tears dripping down upon us with disgrace. With each layer I peel, thoughts of how disappointed our founding fathers would be today. With each layer I peel, I see Martin Luther King frowning upon us. With each layer I peel, I think of my grandsons whose future should be free from government corruption. With each layer I peel, I envision a brighter future for the next generation. With each layer I peel, I strive to rid this country of corrupt attorneys who steal from their clients and cheat to win. With each layer I peel, I hope for sunny skies; and blue and calm waters of Trunk Bay. With each layer I peel, more death threats come. With each layer I peel, I see corruption harming the poor. With each layer I peel, I see evil people in high places molesting children. With each layer I peel, I see Mayors abusing our children. With each layer I peel, I see an uneducated bum inside Snohomish County sexually abusing our children because Snohomish County Executive John Lovick and our county council continue to hide his crimes. With each layer I peel, I see The WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide covering up for a pedophile to save the taxpayers of Washington money. With each layer I peel, I see a newspaper article about lives lost in the second largest natural preventable disaster also known to us in Snohomish County as the “Oso mudslides” poking fun of the victims attorneys who are simply assisting those wronged by a county pedophile who caused their deaths. With each layer I peel, I’m drawn closer and closer to exposing the largest corruption scandal in Washington State’s history.

At the core of the rotten onion, I see the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel covering up for pedophiles and child abusers like John and Crystal Hill Pennington.

Over the last three months, I began to see the bigger picture as I turn my focus to journalism. The picture that I’m drawing inside my book titled ” No sun shine where the cockroaches roam.” Sadly, my investigation leads me right back to the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel and it stinks like the rotten onion it is. Layers that i will likely spend the remainder of my life peeling back.

The corruption I peel apart involves every level of government in Washington State, and it stinks like the rotten onion it is. Once I peel back each rotten layer, I shall replant the bulb for the next generation regardless of the years or the cost. My greatest fear is that the monsters abusing our children, will rape and abuse again if not stopped.

My awaking in life would not have been possible without Washington State’s Public Records Act, John Pennington, and WA Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide. For them I am forever changed; for them, the Washington State Bar will be reformed. Bad nor good, it’s just another chapter for my book, with hope left behind for the next generation.

The Public Records Act allowed this citizen to see and read the corruption inside government emails. Corruption that has raped my Homeland of its dignity, our values, our children, and worst of all trust that we once placed in our government is now gone. All because one Snohomish County pedophile and his mistress were allowed to rape, molest and abuse a child whom I’ve never met but I care so deeply about protecting from two government monsters. These same government monsters are members of the Church of Redemption in Duvall Washington. A typical Christians? You bet

Some of my readers believe that I despise religion. Truth is that I do not despise all religions, just those inside who use religion to prey on our children. The same children who will be the next generation of leaders, who we can only hope do not to cherish profits over people as many inside this generation have, and those who do abuse and rape children as two Snohomish County government officers have over the last five years.

John and Crystal Hill Pennington should not have custody of a stuffed animal let alone a child. When you see Judge Eric Lucas, please thank that piece of shit for ruining another human life.  As Judge Lucas illegally retained jurisdiction over Pennington’s case even though Pennington nor his exwife lived in Snohomish County.  Judge Lucas also illegally “sealed’ Pennington’s files because his exwife # 2 stated that she witnessed Pennington taking showers naked with his six year old child.  Lucas illegally sealed these records in violation of RCW 42.56.  However, we retrieved a copy of this record and posted it.   See Gold Bar Reporters archives.

When you see Judge Wynne, please thank him for allowing Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers to continue misusing over 1,000,000 dollars of taxpayer monies to cover up email crimes for John and Crystal Hill Pennington. When you see Judge Richard Okrent call him the Nazi he is or simply call him Henry Kissinger.

John and Crystal Hill Pennington were contacted for comment both refused.  In addition, the Gold Bar Reporters reiterate that John Pennington has never denied any part of our investigations or any allegations that he is a sexual deviant. We stand by our report and further state “silence is golden.”   However, there are four lawsuits pending against Pennington for criminal and negligent conduct here in Washington State, with a RICO complaint just in time for 2015,  so one can assume that he will have an opportunity to deny these allegations soon.  However, if he would like to respond we will publish his statements.
