California Lawyers


The California Bar is one of the most corrupt organizations in America and due to that deep seated corruption may explain why nothing is ever addressed when legal abuse is reported.

The California State Bar’s two year organized obstruction, and coercive legal threats, trying to stop a GTI News investigation, was all about suppressing confirmations. Confirmation that the State Bar, and its Board of Trustees knew about a “CONFIDENTIAL SAN DIEGO DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY ASSOCIATION” (SDDDAA) CONSPIRACY DOCUMENT, with the ASSOCIATED SUPPRESSION OF STATE BAR CITIZEN COMPLAINTS.
A cover up to hide when the State Bar, and its Trustees were informed about CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY documents involving Prosecuting Attorney members, and what the CSB did to bury the evidence, and cover up the crimes. A cover up conspiracy with a motive to protect large numbers of San Diego Prosecuting and Private Attorneys from criminal prosecutions, and from State Bar misconduct investigations.
A cover up supported by State Bar false allegations of media harassment, and threats of severe legal retaliations, if this reporter’s investigations continued. A DA conspiracy document the State Bar, and its Board of Trustees knew about, lied about, and buried, long before GTI News started asking questions. Questions that the State Bar did not want to answered, on the record, or have the public know about.

THE LAW SAYS:

Co-Conspirator (Accessory)
In common law, an accessory could not be found guilty unless the actual perpetrator was convicted. In most U.S. jurisdictions today, however, an accessory can be convicted even if the principal actor is not arrested or is acquitted. The prosecution must establish that the accessory in some way instigated, furthered, or concealed the crime. Typically, punishment for a convicted accessory is not as severe as that for the perpetrator
An accessory after the fact is someone who knows that a crime has occurred but nonetheless helps to conceal it. Today, this action is often termed obstructing justice.
In Criminal Law, contributing to or aiding in the commission of a crime. One who, without being present at the commission of an offense, becomes guilty of such offense, not as a chief actor, but as a participant, as by command, advice, instigation, or concealment; either before or after the fact or commission.

As previously report by GTI News, In November 2010, a San Diego Deputy District Attorney Association Legal Defense Fund document was written. A document that described a DDA Association, DA Office, criminal conspiracy to obstruct, and close, the criminal investigation against SDDA senior Prosecutor DDA Ernest Marugg, in exchange for his quiet resignation, and his silence, and it was not the first time. A written conspiracy that included plans to hide the corruption, from State Bar investigations. Marugg’s resignation became official in October 2010, and the criminal investigation was shut down, according to plan.

A San Diego, CA. DA conspiracy driven by multiple self protection issues. The foremost of which, was to avoid huge civil liability, from up to thirty-six (36) women victim/witnesses ready to testify against DDA Marugg. Liability that could severely impact the finances of the DA’s Office for decades. The conspiracy was also about protecting other on going active DDA public corruption criminal conspiracy operations involving other Prosecutors, and to protect the DA’s public image for political reasons.

The San Diego District Attorney Office was rampant, with other quiet resignations, and conspiracies with Judges, and Police to cover up the crimes of other Police and DDA’s. All of which had potential adverse financial liability, and adverse political aspects, for the San Diego DA’s Office, and the State Bar. All of which, the State Bar had public record evidence on, for more than two years, as the Bar, and its staff buried the evidence, and complaints, to obstructed news investigations, while repeatedly lying about the State Bars knowledge of the complaints, and crimes by attorneys.

As Reported by GTI News:

CALIFORNIA STATE BAR DIRTY ATTORNEY PROTECTION SYSTEM – PART I
DDA, JUDGE, COP CONSPIRACY TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE

Marugg, was allowed to quietly resign from the State Bar, as he did from the DA’s Office, and walk away with no prosecution, and all of his legal rights to practice law in other states UN-obstructed. Signed, State Bar complaints from citizens, were buried with the conspiracy document, while State Bar Attorneys threatened news reporters, to obstruct questions about the documents, and how the State Bar hid them.


Truth is Truth Even if No One Believes it A Lie is a Lie Even if Everyone Believes it



The first step in reporting a bad or unethical lawyer is reporting them to the California Bar. Make sure you quote the California Code of Conduct for all lawyers in your complaint. Also send your complaint certified mail.

What should I expect from my lawyer?
Your lawyer should:

  • Act ethically and abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct and the California Business & Professions Code. (To see the Rules of Professional Conduct, visit the State Bar website at www.calbar.ca.gov.)
  • Represent you zealously and use all lawful and ethical means to present or defend your case.
  • Not reveal anything you tell him or her in confidence. There are some exceptions to this rule in, for example, certain life-threatening situations.
  • Allow you to make the final decisions regarding how your case will be handled.
  • Exercise independent professional judgment on your behalf.
  • Keep you updated on your case.

What can I do if I believe that my lawyer acted unethically?

You can register a complaint with the State Bar. All lawyers who practice law in California must live up to ethical standards. The State Bar of California’s Office of the Chief Trial Counsel handles complaints against lawyers. If you believe that your lawyer acted unethically, you can download a complaint form from the State Bar’s website at www.calbar.ca.gov. You may also call the State Bar’s intake hotline at 800-843-9053 (in California) or 213-765-1200 (outside California) to discuss the complaint-filing process. The intake hotline staff:

• Can refer you to fee arbitration, lawyer referral services or another agency better suited to handle your particular situation. Your problem with your lawyer may not involve an ethical issue.

• Can explain how the discipline process works and send you a complaint form.

• Cannot give you legal advice. Nor can anyone on the hotline staff take your complaint by telephone or predict the future outcome of your case. Complaints against attorneys must be submitted in writing. A State Bar lawyer then reviews each complaint and determines whether or not it should be investigated further for possible prosecution. (See page 13) Keep in mind that the State Bar cannot discipline attorneys for being rude or for making a mistake. Also, the mere fact that you lost your case does not mean that the lawyer did something unethical. Nor does the fact that you disagree with the lawyer’s handling of the case necessarily mean that the lawyer did something unethical. Complaints are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

How do I file a complaint against an attorney?

  • Call the State Bar’s intake hotline at 800-843-9053 and request a complaint form. The hotline operator will take your name and address and send you the form with instructions for filling it out.
  • Go to the State Bar’s website at www.calbar.ca.gov and download the form. Fill it out and mail it to: The State Bar of California, Office of the Chief Trial Counsel, Intake Unit, 845 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90017-2515. There is no fee for filing a complaint and you do not have to be a U.S. citizen. In filing your complaint, you should provide copies of any documents that will help support your claim. Your allegations alone are not evidence. Supporting documents may include, for example, copies of retainer agreements, letters, canceled checks or pleadings. Keep the original documents for your records.
