Mr. Alberto Pimentel
Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, Inc.
1111 Corporate Center Drive, Suite 106 RE: Please reject Ricky Polston as the next
Monterey Park, CA 91754 President of Florida State University
Dear Mr. Pimentel:
In my opinion Ricky Polston should be rejected as Florida State University's next president. The
enclosed photograph of Ricky Polston, Claudia Rickert Isom, and Gwynne Alice Young suggest
they were involved in the fraud or impairment of my Petition No. 12-7747 to the Supreme Court
of the United States, a federal crime. Please contact the FBI for more information:

Thirteenth J udicial Circuit J udge Claudia Rickert Isom received the Distinguished J udicial
Service Award while a Respondent in Petition No. 12-7747 for writ of certiorari to the Supreme
Court of the United States. The Thirteenth J udicial Circuit was also a Respondent.
The award was given to Claudia Isom to rehabilitate her image. The Florida Bar’s announcement
notes, “As a jurist, J udge Isom is not permitted to participate in direct pro bono legal services;
however, she is still committed to pro bono work and giving back to the community.”
The award was presented to Isom J anuary 31, 2013, more than 2 weeks before a decision was
rendered in Petition No. 12-7747. This early confidence suggests Ricky Polston et al. knew the
outcome of my petition well before the U.S. Supreme Court Conference on February 15, 2013.
In addition, Florida Solicitor General Timothy Osterhaus failed to appear in Petition 12-7747 on
behalf of Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to represent the State of Florida before the U.S.
Supreme Court. The Attorney General also failed to file a waiver to respond to the petition.

Certainly Ricky Polston, Claudia Isom, and Gwynne Young knew only the Attorney General of
Florida may represent the State of Florida in a federal court action
1
. Yet none of them objected
when Attorney General Bondi let Ryan Christopher Rodems be the only Respondent to file a
waiver of the right to file a response to the petition. Mr. Rodems is a lawyer in private practice
who’s firm stole $7,143 from my settlement in the Amscot case, and is the basis for the petition.
The Supreme Court docket for Petition No. 12-7747 shows the proceedings and orders:
• Aug 13 2012 Application (12A215) to extend the time to file a petition for a writ of certiorari
from October 11, 2012 to December 10, 2012, submitted to J ustice Thomas.

Court of the United States. The Thirteenth J udicial Circuit was also a Respondent No. 12-7747.
“In the American judicial system, few more serious threats to individual liberty can be imagined
than a corrupt judge. Clothed with the power of the state and authorized to pass judgment on the
most basic aspects of everyday life, a judge can deprive citizens of liberty and property in
complete disregard of the Constitution. The injuries inflicted may be severe and enduring. Yet
the recent expansion of a judge-made exception to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1871, chief
vehicle for redress of civil rights violations, has rendered state judges immune from suit even for
the most bizarre, corrupt, or abusive of judicial acts.’ In the last decade this “doctrine of judicial
immunity” has led to a disturbing series of legal precedents that effectively deny citizens any
redress for injuries, embarrassment, and unjust imprisonment caused by errant judges....”

Discussion of the first question presented
1. Can a Florida lawyer in private practice usurp the authority of an Article III
federal judge in a federal civil rights and disability lawsuit, by improperly representing
the State of Florida during a coercive custody of the disabled and mentally impaired
petitioner to force a settlement, and assign the petitioner’s claims against the State of
Florida to himself and his law partners, then move to dismiss the federal lawsuit with
prejudice on behalf of the State of Florida?
The answer is no. Only the Florida Attorney General can represent the State of Florida, which in
this petition includes the following Respondents:
Thirteenth J udicial Circuit, Florida
Claudia Rickert Isom, Circuit J udge, and individually
J ames M. Barton, II, Circuit J udge, and individually
Martha J . Cook, Circuit J udge, and individually
David A. Rowland, Court Counsel, and individually
Gonzalo B. Casares, ADA Coordinator, and individually
Case law holds that a circuit court judge does not have authority to appoint counsel to represent
the State of Florida:
Only the Attorney General of Florida may represent the State of Florida in a federal court
action. A circuit court judge was without the authority to appoint an acting state attorney
to represent the state in an action pending before a federal court. State ex reI. Shevin v.
Weinstein, 353 So. 2d 1251 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 3d Dis1. 1978).
Section 16.01 Florida Statutes states:
16.01 Residence, office, and duties of Attorney General. The Attorney General:
(4) Shall appear in and attend to, in behalf of the state, all suits or prosecutions, civil or
criminal or in equity, in which the state may be a party, or in anywise interested, in the
Supreme Court and district courts of appeal of this state.
The Florida Constitution: Article IV, SECTION 4. Cabinet.—
(b) The attorney general shall be the chief state legal officer. There is created in the office
of the attorney general the position of statewide prosecutor. The statewide prosecutor
shall have concurrent jurisdiction with the state attorneys to prosecute violations of
criminal laws occurring or having occurred, in two or more judicial circuits as part of a
related transaction, or when any such offense is affecting or has affected two or more
judicial circuits as provided by general law. The statewide prosecutor shall be appointed
by the attorney general from not less than three persons nominated by the judicial
nominating commission for the supreme court, or as otherwise provided by general law.

28 U.S.C., § 1367 Pendant J urisdiction - J udicial Qualifications Commission
Respondent J udge Claudia R. Isom - Docket No. 12385
The Florida J udicial Qualifications Commission (J QC) denied by letter October 10, 2012
J QC Docket No. 12385, Gillespie’s J QC complaint against Respondent J udge Claudia R. Isom.
In a letter denying the complaint, J QC General Counsel Michael Schneider wrote in part:
The Commission has completed its review of your complaint in the above matter and has
determined, at its meeting held on Friday, October 5, 2012, that the concerns you have
expressed are not allegations involving a breach of the Code of J udicial Conduct
warranting further action by the Commission but are matters for review solely through
the court system.
Gillespie submits J QC Docket No. 12385 with this petition for pendant jurisdiction under
28 U.S.C., § 1367 because the same allegations of judicial misconduct in the J QC complaint
form the basis of allegations in this petition, and the J QC has indicated these matters are “for
review solely through the court system.” From the complaint:
Please find enclosed my...complaint against J udge Claudia Rickert Isom for failing to
disclose a conflict with her husband, attorney Woody Isom, and my former attorney
J onathan Alpert. J udge Isom lied to me in open court February 1, 2007 by failing to make
the disclosure. J udge Isom’s deceit in the case before her had significant consequences as
outlined herein. J udge Isom engaged in dishonesty prejudicial to the administration of
justice, and brought discredit to the courts and the judiciary.
J udge Isom was dishonest February 1, 2007 during a conflict hearing in my civil lawsuit,
Gillespie v. Barker, Rodems & Cook, PA, et al, Case No. 05-CA-007205, Hillsborough
Co. J udge Isom lied by omission when she failed to disclose that Woody Isom and
J onathan Alpert were previously law partners and shareholders at the law firm Fowler
White in Tampa.
J udge Isom’s dishonesty during the conflict hearing over which she presided is a serious
breach of judicial ethics giving rise to this complaint. As set forth in my affidavit, J udge
Isom denied me disability accommodation, and made rulings contrary to law. J udge Isom
even ruled contrary to her own law essay, Professionalism and Litigation Ethics, 28
STETSON L. REV. 323. (Exhibit 6).
As set forth in my affidavit, fifteen (15) additional related cases followed in this matter,
in addition to the original case, after J udge Isom belatedly stepped down. (Exhibit 6:
Paragraph 47/exhibit 19). The cost of J udge Isom's dishonesty and denial of justice has
been enormous to me, all the lawyers involved, and to the court system.

Re: Docket No. 12385, Judge 150m
Dear Mr. Gillespie:
The Commission has completed its review of your complaint in the above
matter and has determined, at its meeting held on Friday, October 5,2012, that
the concerns you have expressed are not allegations involving a breach of the
Code'of Judicial Conduct warranting further action by the Commission but are
matters for review solely through the court system.
The purpose of the Commission is to determine the existence of judicial
misconduct and disability as defined by the Constitution and the laws of the State
of Florida. If such misconduct or disability is found, the Commission can
recommend disciplinary action to the Florida Supreme Court. The Commission
has found no basis for further action on your complaint that therefore has been
dismissed.
Sincerely yours,
Michael L. Schneider

JUDGE CLAUDiA RICKERT ISOM TO RECEIVE DISTINGUISHED JUDICIAL SERVICE AWARD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 14, 2013
CONTACT: Dorohn A. Frazier; [email protected],
The Florida Bar
TELEPHONE: (850)561-5764
The Honorable Claudia Rickert Isom, of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, in Tampa, will receive the 2013 Distinguished Judicial Service Award.
The award, which honors outstanding and sustained service to the public especially as it relates to support of pro bono legal services, will be
presented by Chief Justice Ricky Polston at a Jan. 31 ceremony at the Supreme Court of Florida.
Judge Isom has been a circuit judge in the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit since 1991. She is currently assigned to the Probate, Guardianship and
Trust Division. As a jurist, Judge Isom is not permitted to participate in direct pro bono legal services; however, she is still committed to pro
bono work and giving back to the community.
Judge Isom currently co-chairs the Hillsborough County Bar Association’s 5K Pro Bono River Run. It is an event she has chaired or co-chaired
for the past three years. Judge Isom estimates her volunteer hours organizing, promoting and coordinating the race since 2010 exceed 250.
The run raises money for Bay Area Legal Services' pro bono services.
In addition to volunteering in the judicial mentorship program, Judge Isom has participated in The Florida Bar’s E-Mentoring Project for law
students and the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers’ Mentorship Project with Stetson University College of Law. She previously
chaired The Florida Bar’s Standing Committee on Professionalism and the Rules of Judicial Administration Committee and currently serves on
the Rules of Civil Procedure Committee. Judge Isom is also a member of the Supreme Court’s Standing Committee on Fairness and Diversity
and is a certified diversity trainer.
Judge Isom graduated from the University of Iowa in 1972 with an education degree. She is a 1975 graduate of Florida State University
School of Law, where she married her classmate, Woody Isom, in 1973. She has four children (including two attorneys) and two
grandchildren.
Judge Isom grew up on a farm in Southeast Iowa and has lived in Florida since 1972.
This year's awards ceremony, which also honors individual, circuit, young lawyer, law firm and voluntary bar pro bono efforts, is scheduled for
Thursday, Jan. 31, at 3:30 p.m. at the Supreme Court of Florida. The program will be broadcast taped-delayed at a later date. Check local
cable listings for details and on the Internet at http://wfsu.org/gavel2gavel.

Good afternoon:
 
I checked with the public information office about the photo, and they couldn’t say with absolute
certainty if the photo was taken at the 2013 ceremony.  However, they noted that Judge Isom did
win the judicial award at the 2013 pro bono ceremony and that Gwynne Young was president of
the Bar and present at the ceremony, so the likelihood is great that the photo was taken then.  I
hope this helps,

Good morning.
I read about the 2013 Pro Bono Service Awards Ceremony held in the Supreme Court of Florida on J anuary
31, 2013, in the Spring 2013 edition of the Full Court Press, on page 26, see attached, with separate

Can you confirm if this photograph is from the 2013 Pro Bono Service Awards Ceremony? Are any other

Chief Justice Ricky Polston received the J. Ben Watkins Award for Excellence in the Legal Profession;
this award is presented in honor of J. Ben Watkins, who helped found the Stetson Law Review and is an
honorary member of the Stetson University College of Law Board of Overseers.
Judge Sue Robbins, Fifth Judicial Circuit, was honored by the Marion County’s Children’s Alliance with
its Children’s Champion Award; given each year to the community’s outstanding children’s advocate, this
award recognizes Judge Robbins for doing what is in the children’s best interest and for striving to keep
families unified whenever possible.
***
On January 31, at the 2013 Pro Bono Service Awards Ceremony at the Florida Supreme Court, Chief
Justice Polston noted that in 1993 – 94, the first year for which pro bono hours were tallied, attorneys
donated just over 800,000 hours of free service to the people of Florida; in the most recent reporting
period, 2011 – 12, that number had risen to nearly 1.7 million hours—the highest number to date. This
year, the following attorneys were commended for their exemplary commitment to meeting the legal
needs of the poor, the disadvantaged, and the most vulnerable of Florida’s citizens:
Jeanne Trudeau Tate, Tampa, was honored with the Tobias Simon Pro Bono Service Award;
