Attorney Keri Evilsizor Allegedly Used Men as "Breeding Stock" in Contra Costa County Family Court Drama

Attorney Keri Evilsizor leaves a court hearing where she succeeded in having the father of her daughter jailed on contempt of court charges. 

A prominent Contra Costa County lawyer who recently had the father of her daughter jailed on contempt of court charges in a family court dispute, also has been accused of allegedly using men as "breeding stock."

Court records leaked by a state court watchdog group suggest that lawyer Keri Anne Evilsizor used two men to produce children, and then misused the court system and state child custody laws to deprive the men of their parental rights, leaving her the sole parent.

The "breeding stock" allegation was part of an op-ed published at the California Supreme Court & Judicial Branch Report.  The opinion piece is reprinted below:

SUNDAY OPINION from the Commission on Judicial Performance Reform Project:
The CJPRP editorial board commends the stand taken by the Center for Judicial Excellence in support of Joe Sweeney in his family court dispute.
It is the right thing to do, demonstrates that CJE is committed to reforming the courts for all victims, and elevates the credibility of the invaluable organization.
It would be easy - and safe - for CJE to stay out of the Evilsizor-Sweeney dispute, but anyone who has looked closely at the case and reviewed the court records knows something is amiss.
Keri Evilsizor is a lawyer who is using the law in bad faith, and in an unethical, abusive, and likely illegal way. Court records indicate that Evilsizor did the same thing to the father of her first child that she is now doing to Joe Sweeney, in real time, and right before our eyes. It appears to be her M.O.
As crass as this may sound, court records suggest that Evilsizor apparently is using susceptible men as breeding stock, and then misusing the law to deprive them of their parental rights. After the men serve their purpose, she wants them out of the picture and will stop at nothing to accomplish that result.
In our view, it appears that for no legitimate reason, Evilsizor ultimately does not want her children to have any contact with their biological father(s), which any mental health professional will verify is a symptom of a serious mental health issue.
And as a female attorney, Evilsizor is giving women, feminism, feminists and domestic violence prevention advocates a black eye, and jeopardizing the progress that has been made in DV protection and DV law by misusing existing laws in the worst possible way.
We applaud the Center for Judicial Excellence for their brave support of Joe Sweeney.

Damning Report Cataloging Career Spanning Misconduct by Judge Bruce C. Mills Leaked by Whistleblower Group

Judge Bruce C. Mills
A report cataloging serial acts of misconduct spanning more than 10 years by Judge Bruce C. Mills has been leaked to the public by a court watchdog and whistleblower group.

The 51-page dossier collected both public and "secret" discipline prosecutions against the judge by the Commission on Judicial Performance, the state agency responsible for judge oversight and accountability. The report is embedded at the end of this post.

The report reveals that in addition to two well known public disciplinary actions taken against the veteran Contra Costa County jurist, Mills was also found guilty in three additional incidents where the type of discipline and name of the offender were "private" and not revealed to the public.

The group identified Mills as the offending judge in the secret proceedings by reverse engineering details from the public disciplinary actions and cross referencing the information with old CJP annual reports. The acts of public and private misconduct occurred in 2001, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013.

Judge Bruce Clayton Mills was appointed to the bench by Governor Pete Wilson in July, 1995. Mills worked as a Contra Costa County prosecutor from 1985-95, and was in private practice from 1984-87. The judge is a 1984 graduate of Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon

Sacramento Superior Court Corruption: Local Court Reform Group Logs 700 Followers on Facebook

Judge Kevin Culhane, Judge James Mize, Robert C Hight, James M Mize, Matthew J Gary, Peter J McBrien, David De Alba, Laurie M Earl, Jerilyn L Borack, Tami R Bogert, Thadd A Blizzard, Stephen Acquisto, Steven M Gevercer, Bunmi Awoniyi, James P Scott P Harmon, Sacramento Superior Court, Sacramento County, Tani G Cantil Sakauye, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert DA

A Sacramento County court reform group has announced that they have just surpassed 700 followers on Facebook. The Sacramento Family Court Corruption group posts information about incidents of judge and attorney misconduct, and an alleged Kids for Cash-style racketeering enterprise they contend operates in the family court system.

The court reform advocates also engage in direct action campaigns to raise awareness and compel enforcement of state judicial ethics laws. In the most recent action, the group published and mailed a letter to Sacramento County Presiding Judge Kevin Culhane demanding that he enforce the state Code of Judicial Ethics against Judge Matthew Gary

Gary reportedly is involved in an improper, personal relationship with his court clerk, Christina Arcuri. Under state law, a judge is not permitted to engage in a consensual relationship with a court employee under his supervision.

The group has compiled and posted on Facebook dozens of examples of what they contend is corruption throughout the court.   
"We continue to gain Facebook followers because every week a new victim of court corruption is created in Sacramento Family Court," said Susan Ferris, a group administrator. "At some point, oversight agencies who have ignored this for so long won't be able to ignore the sheer volume of victims." 
The group says they have been frustrated by inaction and indifference by the state Commission on Judicial Performance, responsible for oversight and accountability of judges in California, the State Bar, responsible for attorneys, and local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. 

Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert has refused to enforce perjury, obstruction of justicechild abduction, court document counterfeiting, false arrest, and other laws, the group charges. 
"Our local DA has made clear she would rather be a judge. To be elected a judge you need the endorsement of other judges and prominent attorneys, and Schubert is not enforcing these laws because they implicate several local judges, along with attorneys who have aided and abetted client misconduct, including criminal child abductions," Ferris explained.
"This is all about politics and ambition. There are so many unprosecuted crimes that Schubert has all but issued a decree that local judges and attorneys are immune from criminal prosecution. This preferential treatment for the legal community should ensure her election or appointment as a judge," Ferris added. 
The 2014 documentary film Divorce Court cataloged corruption in family courts throughout the United States, and designated the Sacramento County system as one of the worst in the nation.

Santa Clara County Judge Mary Ann Grilli Controversy: Socioeconomic, Pro Per Bias Alleged by Family Court Whistleblowers

Commission on Judicial Performance Victoria B. Henley Director CJP - California Supreme Court Judge Tani G Cantil Sakauye - Judge Erica Yew Santa Clara County Superior Court - Hon. Erica Yew Commission on Judicial Performance - Judicial Council of California =udge Mary Ann Grilli Santa Clara County Superior Court - Hon. Mary Ann S. Grilli Santa Clara Family Court - Judge Rise Jones Pichon Santa Clara County Superior Court Hon. Rise Jones Pichon Santa Clara Superior Court Presiding Judge
Santa Clara County Superior Court whistleblowers allege that many wealthy judges convey explicit socioeconomic and pro per bias against indigent, disabled and financially disadvantaged litigants. 

A Santa Clara County government whistleblower has leaked the Statement of Economic Interests financial disclosure data for controversial family law Judge Mary Ann Grilli. The records reveal that Grilli enjoys a net worth substantially above seven figures. The 30-page document, embedded at the end of this article, shows a well diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, as well as an IRA and a revocable trust. 

Indigent, disabled and financially disadvantaged "pro per" litigants who can't afford counsel report that Grilli routinely exhibits socioeconomic and pro per bias, and favoritism towards lawyers. Court dockets and records from cases reviewed by the Family Court Accountability Coalition indicate that Grilli also often disregards "level-playing field" laws that mandate both parties in a divorce be represented by counsel where community property and assets are sufficient.

Former Sacramento Family Court Judge Tani Cantil-Sakauye Blamed for Statewide Court Corruption Problems

California court watchdog groups charge that the leadership of the state Judicial Council bears primary responsibility for a string of court scandals compiled in this video from the California Courts News YouTube Channel. An ABC News 10 investigation into misuse of the California Highway Patrol by the chief justice as a taxi and shopping service is included. 

Indifference and incompetence by Judicial Council Chair Tani Cantil-Sakauye and senior management at the agency has resulted in an epidemic of court corruption in California, including a Los Angeles County court clerk accused of stealing $6,000 from people filing name changes, a case fixing scheme uncovered by the FBI in Orange County, and a massive, statewide traffic courts scandal

Special Sunday Satire by RoadDog

Keeping a lid on the epidemic of judicial corruption in California don't come cheap. The Boss of Bosses of the California Commission on Judicial Performance - the state agency that used to be responsible for keeping the state's judges in line - banked $194,000 in pay last year. Can you say "protection racket?" That's some OG gangsta shit. Who wants Victoria Henley's job? Raise your hand.
