Paranoid? What happens when someone within “the justice department” is out to get you.
What happens when you become become entangled with Justice Department employees who are involved in a Grishomesque conspiracy? It becomes almost impossible to know who is whom they say they are and who is out to get you.
My own experience with The Department of Justice started in 1996 when I filed for what should have been a simple divorce. I was going to file the papers myself. Then I went to an attorney and was told she could probably wrap things up for under $5,000. There was about $200,000 equity in our family home at the time. So I hired Barbara St. Ours.
The Commissioner on the case, Robert Zakon, seemed to favor my ex, building inspector Timothy Lynn. Later I heard rumors from three totally separate sources that Zakon had a sexual relationship with Tim’s attorney, Linda Grillo. Appellate case law authorizes a judge to continue on a case, even if he is schtupping one of the attorneys involved. As long as he is not married to the schtuppey.
Still I was granted a higher percentage of custody than Tim and possession of the family home.
Then Tim hit me, and the Sheriff “lost” the file. I heard later that the woman Tim said he lost his virginity to, called “Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Pam” by Tim, worked for the sheriff as a 911 operator. The man who was married to Tim’s sister said he heard that Pam Wells made the file disappear.
Barbara St. Ours told me I could move to San Diego and she would take care of getting the proper approvals, since Tim hit me. Unfortunately, St. Ours forgot to mention that she was close to suspension from the bar for commingling funds on a different case.
When I moved, Tim went into an ex parte hearing with Zakon, without inviting me. He did post a note on St. Ours door, but she was not in the office and was not even allowed to practice law anymore. Zakon took 100% of my parental rights away that day.
Then my oldest sister and her husband, Mary and Jeff Sherman recommended a highly paid Encino attorney named Gary Weyman to represent me. Supposedly, Weyman represented Jeff Sherman’s first wife when they divorced and she “took him to the cleaners.”
Weyman made an awful error, in that he forgot to invoke Family Code 215, which would have returned the children to me. Recently I hired an investigator to look into the Jeff Sherman divorce. She looked at the proper case, because it had Mel Sherman named as Jeff’s father. There was no mention of Gary Weyman as counsel for anyone.
Later, Zakon retired and Commissioner Alan Friedenthal took over the case. He was even more biased against me than Zakon. I assumed Tim’s parents James and Helen Lynn gave Friedenthal a bribe. They took out a substantial line of credit on their free and clear home just a day before Friedenthal made crazy rulings.
It was not until about five years later that I found Jeff Sherman had known Friedenthal since childhood and Jeff’s brother and sister-in-law were still Facebook friends with Friedie. It was obnoxious and creepy that Mary and Jeff never mentioned the friendship to me. It was outright unethical for Friedenthal not to mention it.
But why would my own sister make trouble for me with a family law judge? Besides that she is and always has been a control freak, family dynamics rivaled only on the season premier of Dallas, she and her children were given a substantial increase in inheritance because my parents were convinced to write my own children out of the “will”. Friedenthal had given full legal custody and almost complete physical custody of the children to Tim’s parents and Tim. My parents did not want Tim to control any inheritance my children received.
Though Friedenthal refused to recuse from my case when I asked nicely, filing a CCP 170.1 motion in 2008, he did recuse himself over a year later. In 2011 the Commission on Judicial Performance finally got around to having the California Supreme Court admonish Friedenthal for the apparent bias and embroilment in my case. None of his orders were overturned or even altered. The woman who took over the case as judge was a nightmare.
Judge Elizabeth Feffer is bright and has a professional demeanor, unlike Commissioner Friedenthal. That made her evil doings even more dangerous. One appellate decision regarding a different case called Feffer’s orders “Draconian”. Well put.
How does Feffer get away with what looked like misconduct to me and to enough people to get a recall on the ballot? It probably helps that she is married to a Supervising Investigator for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Justin Feffer.
Justin’s dad was recently deceased judge Irving Feffer.
Back in 1991, Justin shot and killed a man on his dad’s front lawn in Beverly Hills, according to a report in the L.A. Times. It was treated as an attempted robbery by the man who was shot, Jessie Khoe. My interaction with a member of the Justice Department Family Feffer makes me question whether we heard the whole story behind the slaying.
Call me paranoid.
But my entire case file in the family law case is “missing” again, and judges continue to write orders in the case. I want to file a motion to vacate all orders in San Diego, since the case was ordered transferred there, twice, but San Diego doesn’t have the file, so they cannot assign a case number.
One of my Dad’s favorite sayings: “Just because you are paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.”
