Is there any truth to these absurd claims?

  • The Los Angeles Superior Court and its honorable judges have been hiding its Books of Cout - Book of Judgments, the Index of All Cases and the Registers of Actions, all Public Records by law, for the last 25-30 years?
  • The Los Angeles Superior Court and it honorable judges have been engaged in racketeering in the last 25-30 years, by creating false, deliberately misleading legal records, that the Court kept "privileged" on its secretive computer system - Sustain (and which by law must be Public Records)?
  • The Los Angeles Superior Court and its honorable judges eliminated the Books of Court, Public Records by law, some 25-30 years ago, when they introduced the computerized system, Sustain, with no public oversight, in violation of the U.S. Rule Making Enabling Act (28 U.S.C. §2071 - 2077), and that Sustain from inception, was designed to defraud the public?
  • The Los Angeles Superior Court also uses the Sustain to transfer records and "Informal Briefs" to the Court of Appeal, in violation of rules of court, and any concept of Due Process, with no notice or service to parties in such actions?
  • Three of the past leaders of House of Justice - Bet Tzedek -- David Pasternak, Sandor Samuels, and Terry Friedman, were jointly involved in racketeering acts?

Is so:

  • How come nobody in this large and prosperous legal community ever said anything in 25-30 years?
  • Is it correct to conclude that there was not a single honest judge in Los Angeles in the last 25-30 years? Any honest judge facing such conditions had to report it to the appropriate authorities pursuant to the California Code of Judicial Ethics, Canon 3D(2) and/or protested and/or resigned...
  • Canon 3D(1) says:
  • D. Disciplinary Responsibilities
    (1) Whenever a judge has reliable information that another judge has violated any provision of the Code of Judicial Ethics, the judge shall take or initiate appropriate corrective action, which may include reporting the violation to the appropriate authority.
  • Is it true to conclude that the Court of Appeal , 2nd District must be deemed incollusion with this racket?
  • Shouldn't the Board of Bet Tzedek, or its ethics committee, if there is one, look into the issue of conduct of its board members past and present and reach some conclusions?

Quiz Questions:
(click on the image to enlarge view)
1. How many acts of racketeering (Predicated Acts per RICO - Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) by David J Pasternak can you detect in the records on this page alone? (click on the images to enlarge view)

2. How many racketeers can you identify between the figures on the right and the narrative on the left, and how many Predicated Acts per RICO can you count for all combined?

First Prize - tickets for two for the Justice Ball, July 19, 2008, where the winner may have a chance to meet some of the leaders of the racketeering ring - Pasternak, Samuels, and probably some of the racketeers/judges as well...

1. Two Grant Deeds from Records of Samaan v Zernik, that are the Core of the Fraudulent Conveyance of the Property by Pasternak.

Grant Deed recorded by Pasternak 12/17/07
a. Was not at all the one "approved" by Court
b. Has the name of the Grantee covered by white-out and typed over - it is impossible to ascertain what, if any, was acknowledged by the Notary Public
c. Grantee: "David Pasternak for Joseph V Zernick [sic-jz] per case sc087400"lacking in legal foundation - a "case" is not a legal authority.

Court Approved Grant Deed
a. Was not at all the one recorded .
b. Instrument (left panel): Grantor is "Joseph Zernik, an unmarried man".
c. Notary Acknowledgement (right panel): Pasternak scribbled his own signature for the notary, but the seal is of notary Lisa Khalaydjian.
d. Notary Acknowledgement (right panel): Missing signature of Grantor , therefore the Notary acknowledged a blank instrument.

2. Combined, these instruments invalidate any purported appearance of validity that the instrument recorded with the Registrar might have had:
a. Obviously, an instrument executed by either David Pasternak and acknowledged by either Pasternak and/or Khalaydjian must not be trusted in this case. The record presented in court on December 7, 2007 inherently taints both Pasternak and Khalaydjian - Khalaydjian - for providing Pasternak with blank acknowledgments with her seal, and Pasternak for using such paper for fraudulent purposes.

b. Closer inspection shows that the record that was recorded in the office of the Registrar is dated Nov 27, 2007. Therefore, Pasternak already had it in his possession on Dec 7, 2007, when he presented the court the other instrument, in a deliberate attempt to deceive.

3. Dec 7, 2007 Proceedings before Judge Patricia Collins - Court Racketeering at its Worst:

a. Was part of racketeering by the LASC and its judges in this case - it was handled all along "off the books" (and that is why the books are concealed) - the "Guantanamo Bay in LA" procedure...

b. Was held as the second ex parte appearance for that morning, with no notice as required by law, 24 hours in advance.

c. Judge Collins had no idea regarding the case.

d. Judge Collins did not even have the court file of the case in the court room.

e. Judge Collins could not possibly read and comprehend the records that were brought for her approval - about 100 pages of complex financial and real estate records.

f. Judge Collins had no interest and did not even attempt to comprehend the matter. The appearance started in mid morning, and she was concerned that she would be late for lunch, as she stated herself.

g. In blatant defiance of the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, Pasternak requested, and Judge Collins approved on that morning two ex parte gag-orders against Zernik, prohibiting him from speaking for his own defense, as Defendant in pro per

h. When asked to justify in court why such were urgent procedures that required ex parte applications, Pasternak responded that he needed more money, and as long as Zernik was allowed to speak, he could accomplish his [racketeering- jz] acts.

i. Pasternak requested, and Judge Collins approved a classic racketeering agreement - an indemnity agreement for Mara Escrow to entice the company to participate in racketeering activity with the court.

j. Judge Collins had her own racket on the side - while she signed the orders presented to her by Pasternak in court, she in fact invalidated all acts of that morning by the invalid recording of the proceeding in the Register of Action, where an invalid proceeding and an invalid adjudication were recorded. That was a typical maneuver by the judges of the LASC, they expected that the litigants abide by the illegal orders that they pronounced in court, but held themselves innocent, since they secretly invalidated such orders later in chambers - the "cross your fingers behind your back" maneuver...

Joseph Zernik

Evidence for wide-spread, long-term corruption in the largest County Court in the U.S.A.

The Los Angeles Superior Court (LASC) and Mr Pasternak – an Officer of the LASC - who at present is at the center of racketeering activity described below, engaged in frauds in litigation, in taking of real property of Defendant Zernik with no entry of judgment, in fraudulent conveyance of title of said property, and in harassment and Intimidation of a Defendant Zernik – a victim, an informer, and a witness. The conduct of the LASC and Mr Pasternak was and is in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act RICO (18 U.S.C. § 1961–1968).

History: This racket was established in LASC about 25-30 years ago, with the introduction of the then new Case Management System – Sustain, with no public oversight, in violation of the U.S. Rule-Making Enabling Act (28 U.S.C. §§ 2071 – 2077). Concomitantly, the LASC then eliminated the Books of Court as Public Records, in violation of the U.S. Constitution, Amendments 1st, 5th, and 14th. The conduct of the Judges of the LASC at that time, and any Judges of the LASC ever-since was out of compliance with the law.

Relationships with Other Racketeering Enterprises: The conduct of the LASC Racket in this particular case was in tight collaboration with another racketeering enterprise – Countrywide Financial Corporation, including any and all of its affiliates and subsidiaries, jointly and/or severally (Angelo Mozillo, Sandor Samuels, Maria McLaurin, Sanford Shatz, Todd Boock), Pacific Mortgage Consultants (Jae Arre Lloyd, Victor Parks, Nivie Samaan), Mara Escrow (Liz Cohen), and United Title Company, and the law firms of Sheppard Mullin et al (Mohammad Keshavarzi, Paul Malingagio), Buchalter Nemer (Richard Ormond), and Bryan Cave, LLP (John Amberg, Jenna Moldawsky).

Accomplices: Two additional banking institutions acted in ways that assisted the conduct of the racket in this particular case – Union Bank of California, and USC Credit Union. The Office of Los Angeles Registrar/Recorder established standards of care that are compatible with the conduct of such rackets and out of line with plain reason.

California Court of Appeal, 2nd District (CCA2): The CCA2 has taken an identical position to that of the LASC in this case - hiding it Books of Court – Index of All Cases, Calendar of the Court, Registers of Actions. The CCA2 is also insisting on a rushed hearing an appeal on a Judgment with no documentation of its entry, out of compliance with the law and California Rules of Court. The CCA2 also refused to allow Appellant Zernik access to his own litigation records at the LASC in preparing his opening brief. The CCA2 refused to adequately list the parties and attorneys in this case. There are other indications of tight collaboration of the racketeering enterprise in the LASC with the CCA2. Again, the instrument underlying this collaboration is the LASC’s case management system – Sustain. The LASC and the CCA2 are therefore renegade Courts.

U.S. District Court, Los Angeles and Riverside (USDCLA): A related case was filed in the USDCLA on March 5, 2008, when Zernik, Defendant at the LASC, sued the LASC and its judges. With it Zernik filed a request for protection through a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the judges of the LASC. Initially a series of judges of the USDCLA recused themselves. Eventually Judge Virginia Phillips, of U.S. District Court, Riverside, accepted the case. However, her conduct in this case remains questionable. She failed to rule on the case from early March 2008, when Plaintiff Zernik approached the U.S. Courts in an emergency request for protection, until March 21, 2008, when the request became moot, after Judge Terry Friedman of LASC had sufficient time to proceed with his abusive conduct, with no valid authority at all. And then again – Judge Phillips’ March 21, 2008 Minute Order appears complicit with the actions of the racketeering enterprise, and requires further investigation, since it provides evidence that she was aware of certain details of the racket that Plaintiff Zernik himself was not aware of at that time. Judge Phillips referred the case to Magistrate Carla Woehrle in USDCLA. Conduct of Magistrate Woehrle is unequivocally aimed at assisting the racket and preventing its exposure. Her actions focused mostly on attempts to undermine Pacer, the honest Register of Actions of the U.S. Courts, and blocking Defendant Zernik access to the court by setting on him on May 15, 2008, a gag-order prohibiting him from any filing in that court, in violation of the 1st, 5th, and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. At the same time she resisted any requests to compel the LASC, Defendant in the US Court action - to allow Plaintiff Zernik access to his litigation records in the LASC.

Present Conditions in this Case: The evidence is overwhelming that the LASC, including Judges Connor, Goodman, Segal, Rosenberg, Hart-Cole, Collins, and Friedman, with assistance by Officers of the Court Pasternak and O’Brien engaged in racketeering in the taking of Zernik’s property with no valid entry of judgment. The main instrument that facilitated the enterprise of the racket and shows the pattern of racketeering activity is the case management system – Sustain, installed 25-30 years ago. Various features in the design of that program demonstrate that it was created with the intention of running such a racket in the court. Beyond that, the program as it appears today shows clear evidence that integrity of the code was not safeguarded over the years. The LASC and Mr Pasternak continue to act as if there was or is legal foundation to their conduct. At the same time, they continue to hide the Books of Court: Book of Judgments, Index of All Cases, Calendar of the Court, and Registers of Actions. On June 3, 2008 Assistant Presiding Judge McCoy sent a response to Zernik’s request for certifying either the entry of judgment or non-entry of judgment. Judge McCoy refused to provide either!

Demands for Immediate Actions: The LASC and the CCA2, with Mr Pasternak presently at the center of their racketeering conduct, must be immediately stopped by the proper authorities. Failure to do so is abdication of the Rule of Law in Los Angeles County. Mr Pasternak, the LASC, and CCA2 must not take any further action in this matter prior to review and discovery of the Books of Court by the appropriate authorities. In addition, Defendant Zernik and the Public at Large must have access to Books of Court and other records of the LASC and CCA2 that are Public Records, prior to any further action by these two courts in this matter. Until such time these are renegade courts.
The USDCLA and Magistrate Carla Woehrle must also immediately cease any action in the related case until further investigation of conduct of the Magistrate by the appropriate authorities, for collusion in racketeering.



In the last few weeks, again, people who were total strangers appeared out of nowhere and provided critical help. Thank you strangers!

And yet, some of them, better informed than me regarding life in LA, repeatedly express concern regarding my personal safety, and expressed different levels of fear for my life.

FBI, Los Angeles, on the other hand, as well as Court Of Appeal 9th Circuit continue to ignore requests for protection.

Therefore, for the time being I just asked my neighbors on all sides to keep an open eye.
