FLORIDA¶S LEGAL MAFIA
Everyone who knows the Florida Bar knows very well that it has an inherent conflict of interest because it is not only responsible for regulating lawyers but is also responsible for representing and promoting their political-economic interests. Most of the complaints it receives from consumers fall on deaf ears, or are sat on by ³bureaucratic asses,´ as one David Johnson of Palm Beach County said as he was tortured on the legal rack by a team of lawyers who maliciously prosecuted him for filing a bar complaint. He asked them to get off their duffs before the matter got on the evening news, not knowing that Establishment publishers and their editors are highly

unlikely to take on and alienate the Florida Bar²journalists who do so independently are written off as mere bloggers, incompetent citizen journalists, or kooks. The Florida Bar disbars a few thieves whose theft from clients becomes all too obvious. It randomly slaps the wrists or briefly suspends a few hapless lawyers in a token show of enforcing professional ethics fashioned in such a way that they excuse what lawyers generally do for a living as long as they are clever and civilized about it. It sends some attorneys off for psychiatric counseling, which may entail the prescription of drugs that make matters worse by covering up the root of the disease in dog-eat-dog original sin. But the most politically and economically influential attorneys and firms in the State of Florida may get away with murder, figuratively speaking, for many years, until they are prosecuted by the federal government. And then everyone seems surprised: ³Why, he is the most respected trustee in the state, and a certified accountant too, how could he be stealing from the trust accounts, doesn¶t the Bar regularly audit the accounts for signs of theft and fraud?´ or ³Gee, he is a personal friend of the governor, gives millions to charity and campaigns, how could he have gone bad and no one noticed it until now?´ How, indeed! And if a large number of lawyers are responsible, say, for the forgery of mortgage documents, it will be a long time coming before any one of them is charged; if any are charged, expect a slap on the wrist, say, a brief probation at the most. And the most of them will hide behind corporate skirts²only individuals and not the law firms who organize unethical conduct are licensed, so the Bar cannot prosecute the firms. But woe unto the officer of the court who adamantly refuses to goosestep before the reviewers, or who crosses the power elite of bar and bench: The Dreyfus will be drummed out of the corps. May YHWH help him and his lawyers if they dare mount a defense, for the rules will be broken by the rule makers, and the Attorney General will pursue him for indirect criminal contempt, for which there is no trial by jury for it is not really ³criminal´ although can result in incarceration, all the way to the Florida Supreme Court if need be. The fourth branch of government, the press, might have some little reforming influence if only Zola were alive, but he is long gone, and the distracted reader prefers to be spoon-fed small bites by mainstream media. The Florida Bar is an ³integrated´ bar; that is, every Florida lawyer has to be licensed by the Florida Bar, which is an ³arm´ or agency of the Supreme Court of the State of Florida. The judiciary itself has no regulator since it discovered within its independence from the other branches of government an ³inherent power´ to exercise its will without interference. The independence of the law court was won from the royal court when the lawyers combined into inns and found power in their educated numbers and support from the nobles who resented the sovereign power of the uncommanded commander. The evolution of the English law profession from the tyranny of the king and his lords in court is deemed to be a progression to popular liberty, but let us not forget that it was very often the sovereign located in the city who was the popular force when the people were oppressed by the nobility in the manors and by the elite who presided over the cumbersome law courts and were more interested in their own interests than in Equity. Thus the infamous Star Chamber was anciently the popular high court before it fell into disrepute because of its abuses of power. More recently, the mother country of English law, having finally learned its lesson, has disintegrated the virtually integrated bar, separating the

disciplinary function from the representative function and placing it among the executive powers, overseen by lay persons, guided when technically necessary by lawyers. Of course not only the judicial branch but the legislative and executive branches of government are literally controlled by lawyers, so the separation of powers is about as illusory as the separation of church and state is when political religion or the parceling of the worshiped absolute power is the modus operandi for both, that absolute being beyond good and evil or being both. Lawyers love to argue, as everyone knows, and they can make good seem evil and evil seem good, and judges tend to agree with them accordingly, so everyone born of original sin, which is the sin of being individual, should have some chance of winning under this organized hypocrisy we say is the law common to us. Hypocrisy, the difference between reality and ideality, is, after all, the underlying crisis that divides every individual despite the fact that µindividual¶ means µundivided.¶ Woe unto everyone when the lawyers team up against consumers; divided as they are, they are sure to fall. Lawyers are by trade not Socratic although they lay claim to the method: the talented ones are sophists not likely to own up to ignorance as Socrates did after proving everyone else was stupid. But they deserve credit for arguing both sides of the cases to the best of their ability. Attorneys whom people wanted to cremate in courthouses won the liberties we enjoy today. The greatest danger is when the lawyers are organized against the people at large including their own clients. A number of state courts integrated lawyers into their system to curb the abuses when the cry ³Kill the lawyers, burn down the courthouses!´ was raised again during an economic collapse that lawyers had contributed to and were taking advantage of as properties were being seized and people were being thrown out of their homes and livelihoods. The good intention born of fear for the loss of their own integrity as a powerful organization was there, in the high courts of several states, but the integrated bar system invoked eventually corrupted and degraded the very courts that were supposed to stand supreme. Today the legal profession as organized holds a stranglehold over all walks of life. Instead of a liberating force it has become a coercive, extortionate, blackmailing force. It is the godfather of a vast system of legalized organized crime. To call it a mafia is an insult to Italians, but we lack a better word. Florida exhibits the worst example of this kind of Mafioso, perhaps because, as has been pointed out recently by political pollsters, the state has become most representative of what America is all about nowadays. The legal mob¶s Palm Beach County Outfit gained international notoriety lately through the postmodernist artwork of one Victor-Hugo Vaca, Jr., whose references to Palm Beach Judge Donald W. Hafele came to our attention during our investigation of The Malicious Prosecution of David Johnson in the Palm Beach county and circuit courts and the district appellate court; our examination of the documents in the Johnson Case had given us reasonable suspicion that Judge Hafele may have fixed the case against Johnson. Mr. Vaca, who prefers the appellation Victor-Hugo, announced in 2008 that he was a hopeful Latin American presidential candidate. He has been deemed mad by many legal observers, as almost anyone, including licensed attorneys, would be for publicly ridiculing and derogating the legal profession. He called it a ³legal mafia.´ His seminal multimedia artwork, Redemption: Story of the Crackhead Jesus Trials, only adds to the orthodox view that the rebellious artist is

cracked if not absolutely insane. He himself advertises his satires of the legal profession as ³bizarre.´ We can only hope that he is a cracked egg, for many a truth has emerged from the reason than inhibits it from being revealed. His hysterical representations remind us of the screams of an intoxicated pythia, directly intuited from chaos. He also played the part of the Delphic priest, rationalizing his findings in a prophetic i-novel that was taken up by producers and released as a movie in 2010²trailers can be viewed on You Tube. He claims he got the idea of publishing his work as a novel from Judge Hafele, who threatened him with civil and other remedies if he released certain videos without the judge¶s permission. Incidentally, the circuit courts of Florida, with the glorious exception of the Manatee County Circuit Court, the only circuit court that has made its records available to the public online, obscure the documentation of the conduct of judges and lawyers by making the production of public records too expensive for most reporters to access. For example, copies of the records related to The Malicious Prosecution of David Johnson would cost about $35,000 at this point, and travel expenses to the courthouse itself to view the 35,000 pages of documents free of charge at one¶s leisure would run several thousand dollars. For further insight into this important public access issue, roundly neglected by the Establishment¶s press, see the author¶s µThe Judicial Swamp of Impractical Obscurity.¶ If we are to believe Victor-Hugo, the world is not doomed because of widespread homosexuality, but because of the insidious depredations of the legal mafia, whose principal satanic coven is in South Florida, no doubt meeting from time to time at Palm Beach County courthouses to suck the lifeblood out of America. The evil virus spreads from South Florida, by the way, to the rest of the nation by virtue of action-at-a-distance, when like attracts like. ³Crackhead Jesus´ is not meant to insult Jesus the Christ, but refers to a high ranking CEO, reportedly from Kansas City, who got high on crack, stood on his desk and declared himself to be Jesus Christ. According to Mr. Vaca¶s confusing press release via EWORLDWIRE on Feb. 22, 2008, Crackhead Jesus became Mr. Vaca¶s tenant in South Florida, a tenant he says he brought eviction proceedings against with the legal assistance of Aaron R. Cohen of Cohen & Cohen. But the law firm apparently wound up suing him on behalf of a corporate client before Judge Hafele, with Victor-Hugo now appearing pro se i.e. without legal counsel. The press release states that ³the corporate plaintiff has failed to tell the Court that Aaron R. Cohen, the lawyer representing the firm in this case, took residence in his client, the Pro Se defendant Vaca's home without permission before, during and after what have been dubbed, µThe Crackhead Jesus Trials.¶´ The Crackhead Jesus personality, if our lay analysis is correct, suits any lawyer who gets so high on drugs and/or his own power that he develops a messianic godfather complex; thus Crackhead Jesus denotes a type of lawyer whose numbers are so legion as to make the malady the norm. But Crackhead Jesus is not a savior at all; he is a satanic mobster, which he knows very well, and this self-knowledge in his dog-eat-dog, war of all-against-all world naturally produces a great deal of anxiety in those who have a modicum of conscience remaining. Whenever a legal capo¶s grandiose delusions are challenged, the flip side of paranoia sets in; hence delusions of persecution, which may provoke a wrathful attempt to re-invoke his omnipotence by crushing anyone who crosses him; we learn from scripture that the crushed are closest to the lord. His non-prescription drug of choice may not be crack; he may prefer to snort cocaine or to smoke

pot. Or his doctor may prescribe psychotropic drugs to relieve symptoms associated with obsessive-compulsive and/or manic-depressive disorders, or to impede him from going over the borderline to psychosis. Unfortunately, the drugs do not extirpate the root of the moral disorder anciently called hubris. Furthermore, his narcissistic submergence in the most powerful profession, sometimes pooling with other lawyers in powerful law firms, and the failure of the profession to discipline itself, only inflates the hubris. The Florida legal mafia has no nemesis; its extortionate rackets are protected by the state supreme court¶s Florida Bar and by lawyers in the executive and legislative branches. As Heraclitus said, ³To extinguish hubris is more needed than to extinguish a fire.´ Absent a nemesis, the fire will run its course and burn civilization to the ground. But the wrath of the greatest of gods cannot be forestalled forever; wherefore the Babylonian prophecy of old: ³Tear down your houses and build a raft to float on the great flood.´ In a more rational mood, Victor-Hugh released another missionary missive on the Internet, wherein he mentions Judge Hafele and the Jerrod Miller, a black teenager²the implication being that the judge is a racist: MIAMI/EWORLDWIRE/March 3, 2009«. For years, news outlets have ignored warnings of the cataclysmic butterfly effect created by the dangerously low standard of competency and ethics for lawyers - those who grow up to be senators like Roland Burris or judges like Donald W. Hafele«. I, unwittingly, discovered that lack of competency and ethics for lawmakers would lead to an economic disaster of global proportions«. The lack of clear oversight for those who set the standard of competency and ethics for lawyers in the state of Florida and in other states is creating a tsunami of global distrust for U.S leadership and lawmakers«. Follow the trail of Judge Donald W. Hafele - from his appointment by Jeb Bush to the little known, three-member Fairness of Elections Committee in 2000, the year Democracy died, to the Jerrod Miller case in which Judge Hafele publicly stated that it went against the fiber of his being to remove himself from a murder trial where the accused murderer was being defended by the Judge's campaign treasurer in 2000. After several documented warnings to Governor Charlie Crist's office about the Judge's corrupt fiber of being, Crist elevated Judge Hafele to a Circuit Court, where he now threatens the environment by creating a calculated delay in the Everglades' case. Why should anyone care about this? Because of the butterfly effect. Elected representatives are ignoring the fact that no oversight exists over some of the 50 states' Bar associations and that has lead to the breakdown of democracy - and is now set to breakdown the global environment for generations to come. Elected representatives are ignoring the fact that a legal mafia exists in the United States, and it will not make things better«.´

The Honorable Donald W. Hafele As previous mentioned, our investigation of The Malicious Prosecution of David Johnson gave us reasonable suspicion that Judge Hafele might be a case-fixer. We shall elaborate our reasoning in detail in our next article, and entertain the notion that perhaps the judge was simply deceived by a master of deception, purportedly a member of the legal mafia, an ex-con who managed to get his conviction transformed into a virtual acquittal as if it never existed. For now we shall attend to the Internet gossip about Judge Hafele, which is very limited but for a burst of chatter in 2009²we would expect to find a lot more if he were a corrupt or incompetent judge. Donald W. Hafele received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Miami in 1979, where he received his law degree in 1982. He then began practicing law with West Palm Beach law firm Wicker Smith. He became a partner at Reid, Price, Hafele & Cameron in 1993, and started his own practice in 1994. He was appointed by Governor Bush to the Palm Beach County Court bench, where he served from 1999 to 2008, when he was appointed to the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit Court bench by Governor Crist to fill a vacancy due to death. Judge Hafele was a controversial judge in Governor Christ¶s ambitious $2 billion plan presented in 2008 to restore the Everglade¶s ³missing link´ by buying all of U.S. Sugar¶s agricultural land there so it could be returned to a more or less pristine state in order to allow water to flow naturally, south from Lake Okeechobee to the Everglades. The plan was ultimately whittled down to a $197 million deal with U.S. Sugar in 2010, with an option to buy the remaining acreage. Environmentalists liked the deal, but Tea Party activists described it as a government bailout and sweetheart deal for U.S. Sugar. Gossip referred to the judge as the governor¶s ³Big Fixer,´ presumably appointed to the Palm Beach Circuit Court in 2008 by for the express purpose of hearing litigation over the grandiose plan, which was objected to by the Miccosukee Tribe and Florida Chrystals Corporation, U.S. Sugar¶s competitor, because the plan was allegedly conceived to unfairly enrich U.S. Sugar and take funding away from prior restoration plans. Judge Hafele, presiding over a 2009 courtroom examination of Carol Wehle, the South Florida Water Board¶s executive director, by Florida Crystals attorney Joe Klock, threatened to cite Mr. Klock for contempt if he continued interrupting the witness, who was evasively answering his questions about the estimated value of the land. Courtroom observers figured she of all persons

should know how much the land was worth, and knew that it was worth far less than the amount taxpayers would have to pay under the deals proposed. We find plenty of gossip about Judge Hafele on the Internet about the time of the sugar affair. Anonymous Internet gossip about public figures may be misleading but there is often some truth to it good and bad. And it is newsworthy in itself when it reveals what people really think but are afraid to say so because they might be punished in one way or another for speaking up if identified, perhaps sued for defamation by licensed litigation thugs if not assaulted or fired and the like. According to the judge¶s anonymous West Palm Beach detractors, he is so dishonorable, dishonest, abusive, unethical, prejudiced, biased, and ego-maniacal that he is called an antiChrist in some judicial corridors. He allegedly accepts biased testimony from business associates and fixes cases for friends. Further, he is erratic, angers quickly, and is generally a jerk whom West Palm Beach voters should have gotten rid of long ago when he berated jurors for acquitting someone. He is allegedly a racist, a white Yankee boy who thinks black churchgoers near his home make too much noise during services. However, the governor and the good old boys of the Florida Bar, which he has served as a referee over disciplinary cases, love him dearly. On the other hand, we hear from Judge Hafele¶s anonymous supporters that he is a compassionate and caring human being who volunteers his time helping people with drug addiction. Not only is he kind and considerate, he is man of integrity, a great jurist, an asset to the bench who deserves to be called Your Honor. His defenders came to the fore after Joe Reiter, former president of the Florida Bar and cofounder of Lytal, Reiter, Clark, Fountain & Williams, allegedly got drunk at the Palm Beach Yacht Club, approached the judge at one corner of the bar and cursed him for ruling against him in a case, saying that he would spend a million dollars to make sure he was not elected to the bench when his term expired. While some gossipers were then wondering how many cases get fixed at country clubs by judges who live the high life in comparison to those they sit in judgment on, advocates for judicial propriety cried out for Mr. Reiter to be hauled up on charges before the Florida Bar for threatening a judge. Yet others said that Mr. Reiter was a good chum who gets a bit nasty when in the cups, and insisted that it was quite democratic for a lawyer to threaten to oppose the election of a judge after that judge made a decision the lawyer did not like. Not so, said others, to IN VINO VERITA. How dare anyone stand up for a so-called ambulance chaser? After all, lawyers are really scheming thieves whose theft has been legalized so they may destroy people. One gossiper said he overheard lawyers laughing at how badly they had screwed their own clients. Moreover, attorneys themselves say the legal system really sucks, that verdicts are fixed when judges decide cases. The legal system is a sewer, and the Florida Bar does little to clean it up. In fine, what we have here in South Florida is a legal mafia. And that brings us back to Victor-Hugo Vaca. In support of his claim that Crackhead Jesus is here, he actually mentions his hated Judge Hafele in a favorable light, referring to a February 20, 2008, Wall Street Journal penned by Ann Zimmerman, wherein she exposed one of the legal

mafia¶s ³civil recovery´ shakedown rackets, a form of organized blackmail which mob lawyers in the legislatures, with the help of corrupt and/or inept bar associations, managed to legalize in several states²why, the civil recovered statutes passed go so far as to require law firms to send out extortionate letters! So called civil recovery apparently allows legal thugs, for example, to threaten some kid, who was caught in a store shoplifting a $4 item that the store put back on the shelf, with a lawsuit and a visit from law enforcement unless he coughs up $475. The Journal reported that a Miami handyman who entered a Home Depot with $6 worth of bill bits he had purchased previously was cuffed by a security guard, After the prosecution dropped the case when he showed proof of purchase, Palm Reifler & Associates demanded $6,000 from him, including $3,000 in ³prelitigation´ fees, which he must pay or else he might be sued and get a visit from the sheriff. Florida is naturally the center of operations for this civilized form of organized crime. One of the largest national civil recovery operations is run out of Florida by Palmer Reifler, which the Journal reported sends out 1.2 million extortionate civil recover letters each year threatening to sue people for shoplifting without any proof they have stolen anything, actually only suing fewer than 10 of them each year. ³Our proven track record speaks volumes about our integrity,´ goes the hackneyed phraseology on the firm¶s website. Ms. Zimmerman reported that Judge Hafele filed an inquiry about Palmer Reifler¶s conduct with the Florida Bar after a defendant showed him a letter wherein the firm stated she owed Saks $669 for a $222.90 item. ³My difficulty with the letter from attorney James R. Palmer,´ he wrote, ³centers around the lack of an itemization of any alleged "injury" or damage. As a point of fact, in almost all of the petit theft cases which come before me (an average of approximately twenty per week) the subject merchandise is recovered, photographed for evidentiary purposes and placed back in inventory for sale. Since §772.11, Florida Statutes, requires "clear and convincing evidence" that the aggrieved person "has been injured" as well as "actual damages," it would appear that these letters may be misleading«. While I am not accusing Mr. Palmer of any wrongdoing, I believe that this matter warrants investigation as it is my understanding that more and more stores (and their attorneys) are engaging in this practice. I believe that the interests of justice would be best served by an investigation into the propriety of this endeavor.´ Not surprisingly, Mr. Palmer the sophist managed to weasel out of any culpability for this particular instance of the extortionate racket legalized by his fellow attorneys in the legislature. In a January 2, 2007 letter to the Florida Bar, (Case No. 2007-31, 064) he did admit to a clerical error: ³I have noticed that there was some confusion in our data entry department regarding whether the client had recovered its merchandise in merchantable condition. Due to this confusion, the file was entered into our computer database reflecting a total loss of merchandise due to the theft incident in the amount of$222.90; when, in fact, the subject merchandise had been recovered in merchantable condition. I apologize for this clerical error«. Therefore, because the file reflected a total loss of the merchandise, the amount we requested was three times the amount of the merchandise and not the statutory minimum amount of $200.00«. Even if there is no physical

damage to the property and the property is returned to the retailer in merchantable condition, the retailer has nonetheless suffered a legally compensable injury in the form of an invasion of a legal right to ownership of and control over the property which was the object of the theft. This invasion of a legal right constitutes an µinjury¶ and provides the owner of the property with a cause of action and the right to at least nominal damages«. In order to avoid costly and timeconsuming litigation, retailers in Florida generally make out-of-court settlement offers to resolve these civil theft claims. In the case at hand, due to the confusion by our data entry personnel, my letter to Ms. Israel erroneously requested $668.70 in settlement. As our file reflects that Ms. Israel has already made a payment of $55.73, our client will accept an additional $144.27 as full and final satisfaction of its civil claim«.´ How very considerate it was of Mr. Palmer¶s client to settle for the statutory amount to compensate it for an imaginary injury to its right of continuous possession! If only the Florida Bar had audited Mr. Palmer¶s for clerical errors, keeping in mind numerous complaints of gouging and several settlements made with victims, it might have given Mr. Palmer and his associates, if not his confused database personnel, a slap on the wrist, at least. We are not surprised that it did no such thing, and routinely dismissed the judge¶s inquiry. The Florida Bar gave its decision on May 24, 2007: ³This is to advise you that on May 16, 2007, the Ninth Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee "D" found no probable cause in this case. The case is now closed. After careful consideration of the information presented, the relevant law, and case law, the committee concluded that this case constitutes a legal matter requiring the interpretation of the meaning of the language of a state statute. The Florida Bar has no jurisdiction over legal matters. This complaint will be purged from the discipline records and the file destroyed one year from the date of this grievance committee action.´ Fortunately, the Wall Street Journal got its hands on this disciplinary file before it was destroyed along with any record whatsoever that it existed. This records destruction policy set by the Florida Supreme Court prevents the revelation of a pattern of misconduct that would be evident in multiple complaints filed against Mr. Palmer and others for the same behavior, while at the same time, it protects the Supreme Court¶s creature, the Florida Bar, from revelation of its misconduct and negligence. Such revelations are not expected from members of the Establishment¶s press, which is disinclined to attack the judicial system that upholds the Establishment that it depends on for much of its authoritative ³news.´ And it has never forgotten the Sullivan case against the New York Times, which was intended to bankrupt the paper. Judge Hafele remarked, on the Florida Bar¶s finding of no probable cause to bring a complaint against Mr. Palmer, that ³the answer will have to come through case law or the legislature amending the statute, after determining whether the civil theft law is accomplishing what it is designed to do." The Palm Beach judge¶s opinion is right on point and also goes to the general issue of the ineffectiveness of the Florida Bar given its colossal conflict of interest. As we have pointed out in µThe Supreme Court¶s Bureaucratic Ass¶, the Florida Bar stood and did nothing while one David Johnson was put to the legal rack to the tune of $250,000 and incalculable emotional distress for filing a Bar complaint against an attorney who demanded that he pay $100,000 to

MIAMI MIRROR ² TRUE REFLECTIONS
settle a $1,621 fee dispute, or else. The attorney, with the help of his affluent counselor and father-in-law, lost the case against Mr. Johnson, and Mr. Johnson is attempting to recover the best he can as we speak, having sued his persecutors for malicious prosecution in the 15th Judicial Circuit Court for Palm Beach County: see David Johnson and Jane Johnson v. Allen H. Libow, Melissa T. Libow, and Libow & Shaheen LLP, (No. 502011CA001121XXXXMB). When Judge Hafele was sitting in the small claims court of Palm Beach County Court, he issued peculiar orders on motions to strike and hold in contempt against Mr. Johnson at the conclusion of a March 26, 2007, ex parte hearing on the $1,621 case, which had been previously dismissed voluntarily without prejudice by the Libows, but somehow revived, apparently without a proper motion to do so, which necessitated an alteration of the official records. The judge made his decision without hearing from Mr. Johnson, who said he was not notified of the hearing and thought the case was over because it had been dismissed; the court had signed a registered letter to Judge Hafele from Mr. Johnson acknowledging the dismissal. Arthur W. Tifford appeared for the Libows; he either pulled the wool over the judge¶s eyes, or the plaintiffs were in cahoots with the judge, to whom the case had just been transferred. That is, Judge Hafele either believed a series of misstatements made by Mr. Tifford, who even referred to his own candor, or he agreed to fix the case so the Libows could take his opinion, that the Johnsons were perpetrating a fraud on the court, over to the circuit court where the Johnsons were being maliciously prosecuted for filing a complaint with the Florida Bar. Therefore it would seem that Judge Hafele is right in his opinion that the Florida Bar cannot be depended on when it comes to the main stock in trade of the legal mafia, which is legalized extortion. But neither can the courts be relied on. After all, the disciplinary organ is part and parcel of the Florida Supreme Court. If Judge Hafele did review the Libow v. Johnson case before him, he would have suspected that it was being manipulated for an extortionate purpose. If he referred the matter to the Florida Bar, the regulatory arm¶s counsels would have continued to sit, as Mr. Johnson had previously complained, on their ³bureaucratic assess,´ or would have passed the buck back to the court, saying it was a judicial matter outside of its jurisdiction. What we must depend on, if only it were present, is the integrity, competence, and skill of the judge, who should know that more lies are told in court than anywhere else, and many of those are told by his fellow lawyers. That is why we shall next examine the March 26, 2007 hearing before Judge Hafele in detail, unless the Establishment¶s press gets to it beforehand. ##
