Court Clerk in California Caught fixing Cases

It appears California is on the cutting edge of judicial corruption howbeit in the opposite direction.  There were several times in my life that I wish I could have paid someone at the courthouse to make a charge/ticket go away.  In  Orange County, California, that dream was a reality from 2010 to 2015.

Had it not been or those pesky F.B.I agents that were meddling their way into Orange County’s litigation processes, it probably would be going on right now.

Citizens have been getting notices to appear in Orange County Superior Court despite the record which reflects that cases were plead out or dismissed.  Apparently, this scam has been tied to a Court Clerk that, by happenstance, recently resigned from the Superior Court Clerk’s Office.  It’s difficult to believe a Clerk went for 5yrs fixing cases and taking bribes and without being caught.  In fact, the FBI alleges the Clerk assigned counsel to represent these defendants who paid upwards of 10k to make these cases go away.   When reaching out to counsel of record for these purported defendants, attorneys allege they have no idea who these people are that they never represented them.   What is not clear is how and who the citizen paid these large sums of money to.  According to the LA Times defendants were paying large sums of money to “middlemen” who would then remit the cash money to someone known as the “fixer” who would quietly make the case[s] go away.

At some point, the Feds caught wind of this hustle which, according to the LA  Times, was targeted towards Latino men and began unravelling this tangled web woven in Orange County.  An educated hunch would lead a reasonable person to believe cuplability goes much higher up the food chain than the Clerk of the Court.  Don’t be suprised if you never hear anything about this case again because as soon as the Judges get caught in this sting — the Feds will surely blackmail them and it will all be swept under the rug.

Makes you wonder how many courts are run the same.
