Recall last week we shared the amazing abuse of the legal system that could implicate the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Eric Holder…
Dig deeper in the legal system and everywhere one looks professional crime is uncovered.
This is not a surprise, as the fraudulent international monetary system is the root for most, if not all, Institutions on earth.
And consider the U.S. Dollar is the world’s reserve currency of the fraudulent monetary system, then it comes not as a surprise to find fraud in every institution we research. ~Ron
Law firms with financial clients already have had to comply with special cybersecurity procedures. Now that’s being beefed up. As Jennifer Smith and Emily Glazer report in The Wall Street Journal (sub req.):
“Big banks are demanding that their law firms do more to protect sensitive information to ensure that they don’t become back doors for hackers.”
Last week on “The Good Wife,” a cyberattack happened through an email. Files were held for ransom.
“A Saudi court in Riyadh on Monday sentenced three lawyers to up to eight years in jail after they criticized the Ministry of Justice on Twitter … one of them [is] a Harvard Law School graduate.” – Ahmed Al Omran, “Saudi Lawyers Jailed for Critical Tweets” in The Wall Street Journal, October 27, 2014. Here is that article (sub. req.)
In every nation there is a disconnect between a new medium and the powers that be who want to maintain a status quo. In the U.S. it was television which depicted the horrors of the Viet Nam War, on the nightly news. Activists rose up. The American government tried to ignore or punish them. Eventually, the sitting president Lyndon Johnson had to exit the loop. He did not run for a second term. The activism eventually ended the war.
Half of the Saudi people who use the Internet, notes Omran, are on Twitter. Yet, the government has had a track record of imposing harsh sentences on outspoken Twitter critics. For the three lawyers, there also has been a fine, which collectively totaled $266,666. They are appealing the entire verdict.
When did each of the Madoff 5 – that is, assistants in Bernie Madoff’s investment firm – know a securities fraud was going on? On that answer depends how much each will have to forfeit to the federal government in terms of their assets. The government is anticipating about $100 billion.
Prosecution contends it was from the first day at work for each of them. The defense is attempting to use a different timeline.

Fed Up With Govt Misconduct, Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option
Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.
In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

Oh My! Is This Good News?
It doesn’t matter how brilliant and well-published a law professor you are or how efficient an administrator at the law school. If there are not enough seats filled, you will likely be out of work, with no direction to comparable jobs. The number of applicants to law school continues to tank.
In The Walll Street Journal, Joe Palazzolo reports that in October 2014 there were 8% fewer takers of the LSAT than in October 2013. And the combined number for June and October 2014 is 43% less than the same periods in 2009. Here is that coverage, with stats cited from the Law School Admission Council (sub. req.)
The academic game is a very specialized one. Its skills and persona are not easily transferable to other lines of work. Sure, some of the unemployed professors and administrators will find homes in institutions with similar values. Those range from think tanks to foundations. However, the rest will have to face soul-wrenching professional change.
In the 1970s, when the Humanities market for college professors crashed (never to really recover again), my generation of doctoral students and non-tenured professors had to reinvent ourselves. Of course, most of us did. You got to pay the bills. But the socialization process had taken hold. That academic conditioning likely was a handicap for many of us.
