Judge David Yaffe was a key figure in the false imprisonment in solitary confinement for 18 months of former
prosecutor Richard Fine. Richard Fine
exposed, advertised and rebuked the taking by US judges of "not
permitted" payments (called by media "bribes"). Judge Yaffe also
denied Christopher Dorner's petition for reinstatement in the LAPD. California
Dorner filed a complaint against an LAPD officer, who kicked a one of the people in the face. Dorner was dismissed from the LAPD as the result of the complaint. Dorner filed a petition for reinstatement. The petition was denied by corrupt California Judge David Yaffe.
