Federal Judges' Pay Raise; New Orleans Federal Judiciary Call To Impeach

by Barbara Ann Jackson


More crucial than increasing federal judges' salaries, attention should be given to mitigating widespread misconduct and abuse of authority.

A long overdue call to IMPEACH federal Judge Thomas Porteous came on December 20th. Associatively, New Orleans judicial corruption is manifest by its deliberate abetting attorneys to APPROPRIATE UNLAWFULLY real estate from scores of defaulted borrowers via foreclosure fraud, and attorneys' falsified documents filed in bankruptcy courts. In Louisiana, 2 particular mortgage companies which benefit from fraudulent foreclosures are Wells Fargo and FREDDIE MAC.

Principally because of innumerable businesses and lives diminished by JUDICIAL CORRUPTION, I was insulted to see New Orleans Eastern District Federal Court Judge Helen Berrigan's, "it's a very sad time for ... our court" statement. Rather than lament people whom Judge Porteous' acceptance of bribes has harmed, those judges think the courts belong to them. And it seems as though, unless coverups become impossible, they fundamentally are unwilling to apply well-established laws if so doing adversely affects one of them.

However, the longstanding, brazen conduct of federal Judge Porteous is consistent with how things are generally done within the Eastern District Federal Court System, located in New Orleans; of which the Federal 5th Circuit and the supreme court of Louisiana are also located in quid pro quo New Orleans.

It is an awful thing that judicial insularism has fostered HAVES and HAVE NOTS classes of New Orleans people! It is even more awful there is a lack of public outrage about the fact that U.S. Attorney Jim Letten ELECTED neither to prosecute Judge Porteous, nor the lawyers who paid bribes to the judge! It was common perception Judge Porteous was connected to the Bail Bonds / Operation Wrinkled Robe scandals of which several judges, sheriffs, and others went to jail. Also, Internet comments posted on nola.com/news make it clear that public trust in Judge Porteous had long ago eroded.

Hopefully, Chief Justice Roberts will not forget his promise about maintaining judicial integrity, and therefore begin the daunting task of eradicating corruption being conducted in places such as Louisiana by federal judges and U.S. Attorneys. Irrefutable proof of my accusations, with court documents, pleadings, transcripts, etc., is posted on www.lawgrace.org.
