Given the recent United Nations Human Rights Council report, which referred to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession" in California, should attorneys in California include a statement to that effect in their standard engagement agreement?
After all, it surely is a material fact, which the average person may not be aware of, but should consider before retaining an attorney in California or ever going to court...
10-10-17 Corruption of the Courts, the Legal Profession, Banking Regulation, is Patronized by the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit
Los Angeles, October 17 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, released records from petitions filed by Dr Zernik in June 2008 at the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, evidencing Fraud on the Courts at the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, patronizing of racketeering at the lower courts, and undermining of any prospect of honest banking regulation in the United States. 
Subject matter of the petitions - Zernik v USDC-CAC (08-72714) - was conduct of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, under Samaan v Zernik (SC087400), which was opined by fraud expert James Wedick, who had been decorated by US Congress, by US Attorney General, and by FBI Director as real estate fraud on Dr Zernik’s Beverly Hills, California, residence.  The beneficiaries included Countrywide Financial Corporation, and later Bank of America Corporation. ANGELO MOZILO (then CEO of Countrywide), SANDOR SAMUELS (then Chief Legal Counsel of Countrywide, today- Associate General Counsel of Bank of America), and BRIAN MOYNIHAN (today President of Bank of America), were all directly involved in the matter, as was David Pasternak – former President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
The petitions at US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, originated from conduct of the US District Court, Central District of California. At the US District Court the Clerk of the Court refused to sign valid summons presented by Plaintiff in Zernik v Connor et al (2:08-cv-01550), complaint under cause of action of Deprivation of Rights, where judges of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, were among those named as Defendants. The Clerk of the US District Court also routinely concealed papers filed as evidence of conduct of the Judges of the Superior Court, which should be deemed as racketeering led by Judge Jacqueline Connor. 
The records, which were now released, show the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, following suit: The Clerk of the Court collected twice court fees for the petitions. However, evidence of the fraud at the lower courts, which was filed with the petitions, was never docketed. Only unsigned orders were issued by the US Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit. An unsigned order issued and served by the Clerk of the US Court of Appeals, in the name of Circuit Judges STEPHEN R REINHARDT, MARSHA S BERZON and MILAN D SMITH, JR, stated: “Petitioner has not demonstrated that this case warrants the intervention of this court by means of the extraordinary remedy of mandamus.” 
The case at hand was part of evidence, which was submitted to the Human Rights Council (HRC) of the United Nations as part of the first ever, 2010 Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the United States.  Staff report of the HRC later noted “corruption of the courts and the legal profession” in California. 
In July 2010 Prof Laurence Tribe, in keynote address to the Annual Conference of Chief Justices of the state courts warned that the state courts in the United States may become indistinguishable from courts in “third world nations”.  However, the evidence released by Human Rights Alert in a series of cases, showed that the highest courts of the land patronized such conduct, through what must be deemed Fraud on the Courts, and undermining of any prospect of effective banking regulation in the United States.
Human Rights Alert (NGO) is dedicated to discovering, archiving, and disseminating evidence of Human Rights violations by the justice systems of the State of California and the United States in Los Angeles, California, and beyond. Special emphasis is given to the unique role of computerized case management systems in the precipitous deterioration of integrity of the justice system.
