CALIFORNIA CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP ALLEGES
MISCONDUCT OF FLORIDA JUDGES!
September 2, 2017
California Civil Rights Organization, Extend a Hand For Justice, has
filed a formal complaint with the Florida Judicial Qualifications
Commission alleging “Gross Judicial Deception and Gross Misconduct which
defies and violates the public trust” against three Florida judges and
seeks their removal from the bench. The complaint, filed in August 2017,
was made against Judges John E. Duryea Jr.; Alane Laboda; and Jay B.
Rosman of the 20th Judicial Circuit Court in Fort Myers, Florida. The
complaint further alleges overall conspiracy and collusion between the
judges and the local law firm, Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt,
P.A. The complaint pertains to activities surrounding court cases
between The City of Cape Coral and The Nelsen Residence Inc., a Lee
County Religious Community that has challenged improper conduct by city
personnel. The City, represented by Attorneys Robert Shearman, Richard
Aiken & Tracie McKee with the Henderson Law Firm, apparently has a
direct contact with Judge Laboda, who was a prior partner in the Firm.
It was also alleged that the Henderson Law Firm participated in both
Judges Duryea’s and Rosman’s prior elections, and was instrumental in
the election of Laboda.
a Hand is no stranger to filing complaints with Judicial Commissions in
numerous parts of the country. Last April, Extend a Hand filed a
complaint with the same Commission against Judge Duryea for his unusual
findings in favor of a Motion for Summary Judgment filed by the
Henderson Attorneys. When a valid protest was made for the collusion
and improper ruling, Judge Duryea disqualified himself. Judge Laboda,
acting as the Administrative Civil Judge, assigned the cases to Judge
Rosman. In May 2017, Extend a Hand filed another complaint with the
Commission, notifying them that the majority of the Judges sitting on
the 20th Circuit Court, intentionally omitting biographical information
of prior education, experience, and the associations of law firms they
worked for. Apparent hearings or investigations by a “secret”
Investigative Panel of the Commission, declined to take any action of
the complaints. After numerous Freedom of Information requests for the
names of the “secret” Investigative Panel, the Commission refused to
disclose the names. “It used to be that many ‘Mafia Godfathers’
would brag about how many judges
they held in their pocket. Now, it's the large attorney firms who brag
and now control what goes on in the courtrooms of America." said John
Wells, President of Extend a Hand. "Because most local judgeships are
ultimately non-contested, it's easy for a large firm to hand pick one of
their attorneys or partners to run for the open judge positions. Once
in, the ex-employee or ex-partner of the law firm, now a judge, can
easily rule on the firm’s cases before him/her. It’s a slam-dunk
situation often giving un-ethical rulings in favor of the ex-partner’s
firm.” The Judge page on the web site for the 20th Circuit Court of
Fort Myers, http://www.ca.cjis20.org/home/lee/leejudges.asp
did in fact show that the majority of the sitting judges had no
biographical information posted as to who they are, what their education
and experience was, or who they were affiliated with prior to becoming
judges. “There is no proper check and balance of the judiciary of the
20th Circuit,” stated Wells. “The can do whatever they wish, and the
Judicial Qualifications Commission will not investigate the wrongdoings
that exist, or disclose who is actually nixing the allegations. For all
I know, the ‘secret’ Panel could be the actual judges being complained
“When an injured party, or a person who challenges
improper behavior of a government entity, is subjected to unfavorable
treatment by a discriminatory or colluding judge, it defies the ability
to obtain justice,” says Marc Evans, the Executive Director of United
for Justice, another California Civil Rights Organization. "Using
favoritism in the courtroom, as indicated by the substantial documents
and evidence in this situation,
only undermines the integrity of our courts. On top of that, when a
Judicial Commission fails to properly oversee judicial misconduct, it
destroys the trust of the public at large” Evans added.
The case filed in the 20th Circuit Court of Lee County pertained to
gross violations by the City of Cape Coral of the Religious Freedom and
Restoration Act and a previous filing of a Strategic Lawsuits Against
Public Participation, (SLAPP)***, by the City against The Nelsen
Residence Inc., a local Religious Community that provides low cost
housing for indigent parties. Nelsen, doing business as The Haven of
Divine Love, was originally a convent for nuns, but now operates as a
Religious Community of both male and female members. After hanging a
“Heck No!, We won’t Go” banner on their Chapel and making a formal
“Declaration of War” against the City in response to the City’s
“anti-poor” policies and procedures, The City in retaliation, turned off
the Community’s electricity and water effectively condemning their
house of worship. “To be denied Due Process of Law and the ability to
pursue our claims by local Judges is in fact a travesty of injustice,
and a mockery of the court system,” says Jerome Valenta, The Nelsen’s
President and Chairman of The Board. “We’ve been, pardon my pun,
SLAPPED into submission by a very unethical group of Judges”
Although the complaint with the Judicial Commission and subsequent
appeals in the Appellate Court are still pending, it appears that the
real losers in this instance are the disadvantaged and low income
residents of Cape Coral who have suffered from their actions.
Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, although illegal, is
sometimes filed by government entities against parties who speak out
against abusive conditions in an attempt to curtain or silence them into
submission by enacting costly litigation that is so unbearable that the
dissenting party has no choice but to give up.

UPDATE: Mayor Marni Sawicki Says She ‘Refuses to be Ashamed’ After Her Ex-Husband Is Arrested for Allegedly Abusing Her
It is so ironic that Cape Coral Mayor, Marni Sawicki, is now
advocating involvement in a push for legislation to help domestic abuse victims
when she, along with her fellow council members, deliberately condemned a Cape
Coral Church and prohibited their religious practices of assisting domestic
abuse victims and other disadvantaged parties.
It’s almost like poetic justice and karma at work. Sawicki’s recent domestic violence problems
are almost identical to those that The Nelsen Residence Inc.’s operations of
their “Haven of Divine Love” were performing before the city interfered and
restricted their religious practices.
Maybe God is trying to wake her up and send her a message.
God's House has been Condemned by the
City of CAPE CORAL Florida!
If you think you are safe in your own home in Cape Coral, Florida…
If you think your home is immune from an illegal search or raid…
yep, you are wrong again!
Without warning, without a warrant or a court order and without just cause, on December 12, 2014 the City of Cape Coral raided the private residence and chapel
of the Haven of Divine Love
Later they shut off the water, cut the electricity and condemned the entire two story private property, the residence and private chapel. All Without warning, without a warrant, without a court order and without just cause.
You ask how or why did this happen?
The real question you should be asking is. . . Could this happen to me? Absolutely!
Stay tuned for the true story and events as we will take you thru the chain of events and the people that took it to this insane point. It is so beyond belief and reason that Hollywood can't even write a script that comes close.
It will blow your mind and you should literally be scared once you learn more about the absolute abuse of power, theft, extortion and blackmail attempts and attempts to defraud, attempted eminent domain, land grab and more!
And that this really could. . . happen to you!
