San Diego Superior Court Judicial Candidate Lisa Schall’s Answer to Voters’ Questions

by Sharon Noonan Kramer
On March 7, 2014, while fundraiser for re-election to San Diego Superior Court seat 20, incumbent Judge Lisa Schall sent an e-blast asking people to forward her fundraising email and offering to answer any questions. As directed, the email was forwarded to others.
On March 13, 2014, over twenty voters’ questions were compiled for Judge Schall to answer.  They were emailed to her on the 13th to the return email address she provided. On the 14th, the questions were snail mailed to her home address.
Here is Candidate for Public Office Judge Lisa Schall’s answer to the Voters’ questions:

 Additionally on March 14th a COMPLAINT was filed with San Diego Presiding Judge David Danielson. It is regarding the unethical campaign tactics being used by Schall’s jurist peers on her behalf.  Several media outlets* have written of the local sitting judges conspiring to intimidate the challenger to Schall’s public office, Carla Keehn, and to coerce Keehn’s endorsers to un-endorse her. This includes coercing a local bar association, a.k.a. lawyers, to alter their organization’s election policies after-the fact as a non-sensical excuse to rescind a valid endorsement.
In violation of California Rules of the Court, Rule 10.703(f)(3) no written acknowledgment of the March 14th COMPLAINT has been received from the office of the Superior Court Presiding Judge Danielson.  Rule 10.703(f)(3) states, “The presiding judge must give written notice of receipt of the complaint to the complainant.”
In the meantime, San Diego County’s chief law enforcement officer, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, was previously advertised on Schall’s website as her #1 Endorser.  Dumanis’ name and title have now disappeared from Schall’s website. 
Dumanis herself is running for re-election as San Diego County District Attorney. This is under calls for her investigation, more calls for her investigation, and even some of her local government endorsers directing how to call for her investigation. (Yea right! By Dumanis’ state government endorser, Kamala Harris, who seems to think one needs an attorney to report crimes by government officials and that those one complains of should be in charge of investigating themselves).  
The June elections are now just forty-five days away.  There is no indication that the local jurists will be admonished by the San Diego Superior Court for their conclusively unethical election tampering while violating the rights of a challenger candidate and the rights of voters. It’s highly unlikely that Dumanis endorser, Harris — who is herself running for re-election — will do any investigating of any politician in the near future.   
Should Judge Schall win re-election from lack of the voting public’s knowledge of the unethical politics playing out in San Diego County that are in violation of Rules of the Court and Canons of Judicial Ethics; it will be a hollow victory. Voters will have the legal right to call for a recall of jurist seat 20.  
Personally, I think I will be voting for anyone who is NOT ENDORSED by any San Diego County or California state elected or appointed official.  Too much cess-pooling of mucked-up water under the bridge!

So what’s the answer? Why did DA Dumanis un-endorse Judge Schall?

We received several responses to yesterday’s post, “Why is DA Dumanis’ name now missing from Judge Lisa Schall’s endorsers?
No one seemed to have the definitive answer of why San Diego’s District Attorney, who is herself running for re-election, would suddenly un-endorse a San Diego County Superior Court sitting judge’s bid for re-election. One Katy’s reader had a possible answer for Dumanis trying to distance herself from Schall: 
Because she’s a Mexican national in trouble with the FBI for illegal campaigning?” 
We’re pretty sure that Judge Schall is a U.S. citizen.  Also, we happen to know that the local FBI is just as bad as the local DA when it comes to turning a blind eye to the corruption in the local courts. So that explanation doesn’t seem plausible to us.
 A whistleblower, who is alleging corruption in the local family courts involving Judge Schall along with some of her endorsers and some of Dumanis’s endorsers, sent us this:
“Thanks for keeping an eye out on this–I can use every bit of your work product….you’re a star.  Please keep it up!”
Another local whistleblower of judicial corruption – this one in the San Diego County civil courts and also shielded by DA Dumanis and the local FBI – sent us a link to the Washington Examiner March 21st article, “A Whistleblowers Worst Nightmare”  To quote from the article:
“The LA District Attorney and the Sheriff’s Department refused to follow up on evidence that Countrywide witnesses, including founder Angelo Mozilo, had blatantly committed perjury on the stand. Some court watchers speak of the, “unholy alliance” between big corporations and the justice system in California. Winston, who says he spent $600,000 on legal fees, further depleted his savings by appealing to the California Supreme Court. That court refused to hear his case…It’s almost unheard of for a top-tier executive turning whistleblower, but that’s what Winston became after he noticed many of his staff were sickened by noxious air in their Simi Valley, California, office. When the company failed to fix the problem, Winston picked up the phone and called Cal-OSHA to investigate. Retaliation was immediate.” (SEE THIS LINK for what happened to Katy’s Exposure Blog when we blogged of local fraud upon the court fleecing the US public and involving Schall, Dumanis, et.al.   Someone in the United States Department of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) quietly altered a federal publication to aid to conceal the fraud!)
And whistleblower of LA county judges’ double-dipping incomes causing conflicts of interest in court rulings, Dr. Richard Fine, sent us the following.  For those who don’t know, while in his 70′s, Dr. Fine spent eighteen months in a LA county jail without ever being charged with a crime – let alone found guilty of one.  The charge was alleged civil contempt (of an uncivil judge who was receiving the double-dipping income).  Sound familiar of anyone we know who abuses contempt of court powers? Hint: DA Dumanis no longer endorses her for judicial re-election.  Dr. Fine’s message:
Dear Sharon:
THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO IN THE 2014 ELECTIONS: VOTE FOR CANDIDATES PLEDGED TO END JUDICIAL CORRUPTION  Requiring candidates to take the Campaign for Judicial Integrity’s Pledge to Eradicate Judicial Corruption, voting for only candidates that take the Pledge and holding them to the Pledge once elected will solve the problem.  Please spread the word to form groups to require every candidate to take the pledge and vote for only candidates who take the Pledge. We can and will end judicial corruption. Thank you for all your good work.  Richard I. Fine
 
DA
 
Dumanis “un-endorsing” a local judge, who she is proven to know is involved with several local jurists in massive frauds upon the court along with some of both of their re-election endorsers, appears to us to be nothing more than a public disassociation. Seems to us  that several compromised politicians want to skate through to re-election without being asked the tough questions of whose interests they really represent. 
 
 
So what’s the answer
Why did DA/candidate Bonnie Dumanis publicly un-endorse Judge/candidate Lisa Schall?
We think we just might know the answer.  From our sister blog, Just answer the Damn Question, Please! on February 27th: “Today’s Damn Questions go to San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis:
1. In 2013, did Tom Homann LGBT Law Association (THLA) endorse Carla Keehn for any Superior Court seat  – OR — In 2014, did THLA rewrite Policy #2 while lying to conceal their prior multi-seat endorsement of Keehn? 
2. Is this ADDITIONAL RACKETEERING (see RICO docs by CCFC) by a Judicial Council member; a Gov. Brown judicial appointee; and an alleged “non-profit” civil rights group that is a fundraiser for Dumanis, so that people can’t vote corrupt judge Lisa Schall out of office?  
3. San Diego County District Attorney Dumanis, are you going to investigate and prosecute your fund-raisers and county judges for colluding to fix a County election on behalf of a corrupt judge who you have a history of protecting  from prosecution?

Just answer the Damn Questions, Please!  Thank you!”

Publicly unendorsing is not even close to prosecuting those involved in numerous frauds upon the court!

Why is DA Dumanis’ name now missing from Judge Lisa Schall’s endorsers?

Do any of our blog readers or people endorsing San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis for re-election, happen to know why Dumanis is no longer publicly endorsing Judge Lisa Schall for re-election to jurist seat 20?
As of last Thursday, Dumanis was listed as Schall’s #1 Endorser.  As of this morning, DA Dumanis is not listed as a Schall Endorser at all.
And…we are still waiting on Judge Schall’s answers to Voters’ questions that she offered to answer earlier this month.  Perhaps District Attorney Dumanis knows the answers to the questions!
Actually, we happen to know that Dumanis does know the answers to some key ones posed to Schall.  We also know Dumanis has refused to prosecute Schall and several local jurists, time and time again, for a massive collusive public fleecing nationwide, via their fixing a SLAPP suit.  They’ve tried repeatedly to cover up what they’ve done by criminal means, as the fraud continues to harm thousands across the country. 
Could that be the reason for the new public disassociation of the two candidates?  Maybe.
We happen to know of other matters where political prostitution is occurring involving the local DA, endorsers and local jurists.

San Diego Democrats Vote to Endorse Carla Keehn for Jurist Seat 20

The San Diego Democratic Party’s Central Committee met on the evening of March 18th in Kearny Mesa.   According to Committee Chair Francine Busby, last night’s packed room was an unusual occurrence for their committee meetings.
The crowd overwhelmingly voted “Aye” to endorse Carla Keehn as the best candidate for San Diego County Superior Court jurist seat 20.  Committee member and Oceanside City Councilwoman, Esther Sanchez, spoke to delay the endorsement vote until April.  She was one of only three or four “Nay” votes heard.
The incumbent judge in seat 20 is Lisa Schall.  Appointed to the bench 28 years ago by Governor Deukmejian, her ballot statement claims she is endorsed for the upcoming June 3rd election by “All 125 judges of the San Diego Superior Court”. Her website claims endorsement of the statewide jurist organization, the “Alliance of California Judges”. 
San Diego Superior Court Judge Paula Rosenstein was appointed to the bench by Governor Brown in late 2012.  In February of this year, she and fellow sitting judge, David Rubin, caused Ms. Keehn to lose the election endorsement of Tom Homann LGBT Law Group by questionable means. Judge Rosenstein also spoke at the February Democratic Party’s meeting against a Keehn election endorsement.  She did not attend last night’s meeting.  
Loud cheers went out in the crowd when Keehn took the podium to speak before votes were cast last night.  
Seems the local Dems understand that by law, Thou Can Challenge a Sitting Judge
Congratulations to Candidate Keehn, to her supporters, and to defenders of candidates’ and voters’ rights in San Diego County, California.

Complaint to San Diego Presiding Judge for Subordinate Jurists’ Election Tampering

Mailed March 14, 2014 to:
San Diego County Superior Court Presiding Judge David Danielson; Judge Lisa Schall; Judge Paula Rosenstein; Judge David Rubin. COMPLAINT in pdf form as filed  in lawful accordance with California Rules of the Court Rule 10.703
 Re: COMPLAINT against San Diego County (“SUPERIOR COURT”) Judges Paula (“ROSENSTEIN”), David (“RUBIN”), and Lisa (“SCHALL”).  Allegation: Colluding to tamper with the outcome of a judicial election in violation of Canons of Judicial Ethics 2.B.(2) and 5.
Honorable Judge Danielson,
          Please inform ROSENSTEIN, RUBIN and SCHALL that they are violating Canons of Judicial Ethics 2.B.(2) and 5.  It is unethical for the local sitting judges to collusively use prestige of judicial office and judicial title to advocate for appointment, instead of voter election of judicial office — while intimidating, coercing, and tampering with the election for judicial seat 20 to the benefit of SCHALL.
          Judicial Canon 2 states, “A judge shall avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety in all of the judge’s activities. B. Use of the Prestige of Judicial Office (2) A judge shall not lend the prestige of judicial office or use the judicial title in any manner, including any oral or written communication, to advance the pecuniary or personal interests of the judge or others.” Judicial Canon 5 states, “A judge or candidate for judicial office shall not engage in political or campaign activity that is inconsistent with the independence, integrity, or impartiality of the judiciary.”
         administrative law judges Given that ROSENSTEINS’s and RUBIN’s campaign tactics on behalf of fellow appointed judge, SCHALL, have raised eyebrows to the point that they have been found newsworthy by several professional journalists[1]; a reasonable person would conclude that they have given “the appearance of impropriety in their judicial activities” by misuse of “prestige of judicial office” and “judicial title” to “advance the personal interests” of themselves and other appointed “judges”. A reasonable person would conclude that they have given “the appearance” they are “engaged in political and campaign activity that is inconsistent with the independence, integrity, or impartiality of the judiciary”; and have therefore, violated Canons 2.B.(2) and 5.

____________

          As I understand it, ROSENSTEIN is scheduled to speak before the San Diego Democratic Party again on March 18, 2014.  Her purpose is to dissuade the organization from endorsing a Democrat candidate for election to judicial office, Carla Keehn, who is running against appointed sitting judge, SCHALL.  Please tell ROSENSTEIN to cease the unethical campaigning while abusing voters’ rights, candidate’s rights, and the pretigious title bestowed upon her by appointment –“judge”.
Thank you,
Sharon Kramer

2.  February 10, 2014, Email from THLA BOD member, Mr. Fox to Ms. Keehn. The email describes in great detail, ROSENSTEIN’s and RUBIN’s thinly veiled threat that the local sitting judges will retaliate against the LGBT community if THLA does not disassociate with Keehn, because of her run against an appointed judge, SCHALL.
3.  February 18?, 2014, Portion of an email from San Diego Democratic Party Central Committee member, Robert Duquette. The email describes his valid concerns of ROSENSTEIN’s actions causing harm to voters’ rights and the “hamstringing” of Keehn — simply because she is exercising her constitutional right to run for office against an appointed, sitting judge.
March 13, 2014, Questions emailed to SCHALL [also mailed to ROSENSTEIN, RUBIN, and SCHALL] with directions to online links of evidence corroborating harm to the constitutional rights of many by these collusive Judicial Canon violations.
