Los Angeles, CA On Wednesday, September 2, 2009 Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Commissioner Peter L. Shaw issued a Stay Order regarding the Disbarment case of Richard I Fine (No. 09-80130) pending his appeal of the U. S. District Court denial of his petition for a Writ a Habeas Corpus. The Order cited “a significant overlap between the discipline case and the issues raised by respondent’s pending habeas petition Fine v. Sheriff of Los Angeles County (No. 09-56073)”. Complete details and developments leading up to the Stay Order can be found on the Full Disclosure Network News site at URL: http://www.fulldisclosure.net/news/2009/09/9th-circuit-orders-stay-in-disbarment.html
This new twist emerged as the first promising development for the beleaguered attorney who has been in solitary confinement in the L.A. County Central Men’s Jail. The ongoing saga of prominent Anti-Trust Attorney Richard I Fine who was jailed in contempt of court indefinitely. Fine was jailed by L A Superior Court Judge David Yaffe on March 4, 2009 for refusing to comply with a court order which Fine claims was an illegal order imposed by a Judge who was receiving illegal payments from in interested party in the case before him.
RECENT DEVELOPMENT RAISING JUDICIAL BIAS ISSUE:
On August 12, 2009: Ninth Circuit Court Justice Andrew J. Kleinfeld restores Richard I Fine’s rights to appeal the U S District Court order denying Certificate of Appealablity “with predjudice” on the issue of whether or not the Trial Court Judge David Yaffe should have recused himself.
RICHARD FINE’S REACTION TO JUDICIAL BIAS LINK & STAY ORDER
* “This is highly significant because the issues in the disbarment and the issues in the Writ are identical. The California Supreme Court disbarred me because I brought federal civil rights cases against the judges because they were taking illegal, criminal and unconstitutional payments from the county. ”
* “The underlying issue is whether the Judges were denying people due process because they were taking money from the county. And, we know that the money they were taking from the county was unconstitutional under the Sturgeon case and it was criminal under Senate Bill SBX2 11 and we know those actions were a denial of due process of under the various U S Supreme court cases from 1927 through 2009.”
* “So in the end when the 9th Circuit will decide that it was a denial of due process for Judge Yaffe to have received illegal, criminal and unconstitutional payments from the county, a party to the case. This decision will control the disbarment proceeding. ”
* “There is further significance because four of the six California Supreme Court Justices who refused to review the Disbarment case and thereby caused the disbarment also had received illegal, criminal and unconstitutional payments from the counties and the other two Supreme Court Justice are members of Judicial Council who wrote the Senate Bill SBX2 11. (Retroactive Judicial Immunity from Criminal and Liability Prosecution) ”These justices should have recused themselves from the disbarment case and by not doing so denied me due process under the US Supreme Court’s cases"
