Keating, Bucklin & McCormack, Inc., P.S, fraud, forgery and false filings, perjury and constructively disbarred from NY State and admitted to practice law in Washington State

Attorney Shannon Ragonesi, an attorney at Keating, Bucklin & McCormack, Inc., P.S, was constructively disbarred from the State of New York (NY). In New York, unlike Washington State Bar Association, is operated by NY State’s Board of Examiners, a state licensing agency. With no surprise, Ms. Ragonesi was a dear friend of Attorney General Bob Ferguson while they both attended NY Law School; and both participated in the helping the Catholic Church cover up hundreds of sexual abuse cases here in the Pacific Northwest.

When a complainant files a bar complaint in NY State, the lawyer is giving a copy of the complaint and a copy is filed with the State of NY’s Judiciary Here in Washington State, when a person files a Washington State Bar Association complaint, such complaints are filed with an alleged private association.

Using the word “alleged” means “not proven.” In the case of the Washington State Bar Association, we discovered three important features through various public records requests to the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, (1) the Washington Attorney General is illegally running the private Washington State Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education classes,, (3) the Washington Attorney General is illegally hosting the Washington State Bar Association’s email server, (3) The Washington Attorney General is illegally running is providing free rent to the Washington State Bar Association at two publicly owned buildings, one in Olympia and one in Seattle on 4th Ave, and The Washington Attorney General is illegally funneling millions of public money to several law firms that defend the Washington State Bar Association such as Pacifica Law Group, Keating Buckling and McCormack ( and NY disbarred attorney Shannon Ragonesi), Kenyon Disend PLLC, and Gordon Rees and illegally using the AG’s risk management division also known as Department of Enterprise Services to provide legal services to the Washington State Bar Association, and (6) the Washington State Bar Association is stealing public money from the Washington State Public Retirement System (PERS).

If the Washington State Bar Association is not a public agency, then why are the taxpayers of Washington State allowing Washington State Bar employees Doug Ende, Kara Ralph, Felice Congalton, Scott Busby, and Allison Sato to collecting a state funded paid retirement from the taxpayers? Is this a welfare program given to alleged private associations?

Shannon Ragonesi, after being constructively disbarred from NY State, called a good friend of hers here in Washington State, Bob Ferguson who personally authorized Shannon Ragonesi to commit the same crimes against taxpayers as she did in NY State. Ms. Ragonesi’s crimes include false filings, perjury, harassment of public records requesters, forgery, fraud, theft of public money, and defamation. But she had a lot of help from other Special Assistant Attorney Generals like King County Superior Court and SAAG Judges such as Michael Scott ( Hillis Clarke, Martin and Peterson), Jim Rogers (Fox Rothchilds), Julie Spector (Lane & Powell), and Joseph Genster ( Hillis Clarke, Martin & Peterson).

Here’s the Washington State Attorney General’s Office case fixing scam works. SAAGs like disbarred NY State Attorney Shannon Ragonesi is paid millions via a fraudulent scam titled the Special Attorney General contracts. The Washington State Attorney General makes judicial appointments and the Governor simply rubber stamps the request. Since Governor Inslee has been in office, we could find only one judicial appointment in the whole state that was not a SAAG on contract with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office to provide a legal defense to public agencies. This means when a person is charged with a crime, or perhaps brings a lawsuit for access to public records, the agency, as was the case in Gold Bar Washington, is defended 100 % by the Washington State Attorney General’s contractors aslo known as SAAGs, and the Judge, like Michael Scott ( King County), Marybeth Dingledy (former employee of King County and City of Everett), Bruce Weiss (labeled a SAAG by AG’s list), Cindy Larsen (labeled a SAAG by AG’s list),, Julie Spector (SAAG law firm at Lane & Powell), and Jim Rogers ( King County SAAG while employed at Fox Rothchild) hear and decide your case. This in spite of the fact that the Washington Court of Appeals Div. I held in Ann Gonzales v WA State that a SAAG attorney cannot be have a SAAG Judge hear and decide any part of their case, or in the words of the Gonzales Court, the right to a fair and impartial judge is constitutional right . . . if a judge was a SAAG, and the Defense counsel was SAAG, disclosure isn’t enough, a judge must recuse themselves from the cases.”

If having a SAAG Judge hearing and deciding cases involving other attorneys such as SAAG law firms like Keating, Buckling and McCormack, or worse, US Federal District Court Judge Richard Jones, Ronald Leighton, Benjamin Settles, and Ricardo Martinez ( all SAAGs while employed with WA State), is this not case fixing at the highest level in the state? In Block v WSBA et al ,S Federal District Court Judge Ricardo Martinez, and local Snohomish County District Court Judge Douglas Fair, we obtained telephone records from SAAG attorney, Special Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor at Hillis Clarke, Martin & Peterson confirming beyond any doubt that Snohomish County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney (SAP/SAAG) Joseph Genster openly engaged in exparte communication via public telephone records with judges.

In Block v Gold Bar, SAAG/SAP Shannon Ragonesi openly brags of her case fixing scam using King County Superior Court Judge ( also a SAAG at Hillis Clarke Martin & Peterson) Michael Scott to SLAPP public requesters down from trying to file lawsuits for access to public records. A case the US Court of Appeals 9th Circuit just agreed hear in Block v WSBA et al, can a judge who was a SAAG, as Ricardo Martinez was with WA State Attorney General’s Office, hear and decide cases when SAAGs Gordon Rees, Leslie Seffren and Shannon Ragonesi are representing the defendants? Under Ann Gonzales v Washington State, our state courts have already held ” NO” and that recusal was mandatory to preserve a litigant’s constitutional right to a fair and impartial judge.

Sorry SAAG/SAP/AWC contractors, the cat is out of the bag. If every defendant filed a disqualification against every judge that had SAAG/SAP contracts with Judges like Jim Rogers, Julie Spector, Bruce Wiess, Cindy Larsen, or Michael Scott, how many cases would be overturned for not recusing themselves ensuring that a litigant should have a fair and impartial judge? Washingtonians have a Constitutional right to access to courts, and a right to unlimited public records. and should never be faced with a judicial plant sent by the AG’s office to fix cases as “risk management.”
